TREATY OF PEACE
HAS BEEN SIGNED.

AN EXCLUSIVE AFFAIR
Some of the Provisions of the Treaty-.
President Roosevelt Praised?En*
voys Anxious to Return.
The treaty of peace which was agreed
to at Portsmouth, N. H., last Tuesday
by the Peace Commissioners of Russia
and Japan was formally signed by each
of the plenipotentiaries yesterday after
noon. It was agreed Monday after
noon that the ceremony of affixing the
envoy's signatures to the document
should take place Tuesday afternoon at
The signing of the treaty was ar
ranged to be a very exclusive affair.
Newspaper correspondents and photo
graphers were barred. Besides the
plenipotentiaries and their secretaries,
Secretary of State Pierce, representing
thero was present only Assistant
President Roosevelt; Gov. McLane of
New Hamsphirc; (he Mayor of Ports
mouth; Admiral Mead and the Com
manders of any of the United States
warships in the harbor at the time.
Secretary Pierce supplied four ordinary
quill pens, with one of which each of
the envoys signed his name to the
Immediately after peace terms were
agreed upon the work of drafting the
treaty began and was completed Mon
day. The envoys expressed themselves
as being anxious to conclude their work
and return to their respective countries.
The treaty will probably be known as
"The Treaty of Portsmouth."
Of course there was great rejoicing
when it became known that peace terms
had been agreed upon. It meant the
ending of 18 months of the bloodiest
war in modern times waged by two of
the great nations of the world. The
final terms of peace were settled by M.
Witte of Russia and Baron Komura of
Japan at the Conference Tuesday morn
ing. Japan waived the war indemnity
and agreed to cede half of the Island of
Sakhalin to Russia. This is generally
regarded by the world as a magnanim
ous act on the part of Japan.
The efforts of President Roosevelt in
bringing the Peace .Conference to a
successful issue have been praised and
lauded throughout the civilized world.

Tlie Governor Petitioned to Offer Re
ward for Supposed Pire Bugs in
While in the city Thursday after
noon, Mr. Claude Leonard, a progres
sive young farmer of Yoyngs township,
mailed a numerously signed petition to
Governor Heyward, asking his Excel
lency to offer a suitable reward for the
apprehension and conviction of the
party or parties, supposed to be guilty
of a series of incendiary fires on the
plantation of Mr. B. E. Leonard, young
Leonard's father. Tho principal loser
by the fires is Allen Shell, a colored
tenant, |who has been completely
burned out within a month.
The petition recites that on the 27th
of July the negro's barn and buggy
house and all their contents were
burned. Last Sanday or just a month
from the date of the first fire, his dwell
ing and all contained therein also went
up in smoke and two days later the
third burned to death tho fellow's only
mule, which had been placed in the sta
bles of his brother, Hilary Shell, an
other tenant on the place. And another
rather singular thing ahout these fires
is the fact that they occurred about
four o'clock in the afternoon in each
and every instance.
Shell is said to be a peaceable and
hardworking negro and he cannot un
derstand why the fire demon pursues
him so l'elentlessly. The white citizens
of the entire community are thoroughly
nrov.sed over such an outoreak of law
lessness and they stand ready to sup
plement tho reward if any the Gov
ernor may offer or they may and, in
all probability will, offer one inde
Gov. Heyward acted promptly on the
petition and has offered a reward of
$200 for the arrest of the incendiaries
with proof to convict.
COMMITED TO JAK..
Arthur Gregory and George Barton,
two young white men of Youngs town
ship were placed in jail Saturday after
to await a preliminary hearing in con

noted above. The preliminary will pro

. Q. LYNCH
DEATH OE .MILL PRESIDENT.
Mr. Thus. J. McCrary of Newberry Dies
Newberuy, August 30.?This com
munity was greatly shocked this morn
ing when it was announced that Thos.
J. McCrary was critically ill, and much
greater was the shock when it was an
nounced that at 11 o'clock he was dead.
Yesterday he was in his accustomed
health and about his accustomed busi
ness. At 12 o'clock last night he was
taken with congestion and died at 11 to
day. Mr. McCrary was a native of
Laurens County, being born near Clin
ton. He came to Newberry when quite
a young man and clerked for several
years for W. T. Tarrant, beginning in
1871. In 1880 he went to tho National
Hank, first as bookkeeper, and then as
assistant cashier. He was with the
bank twelve years. In 1892 he was
made treasurer and general manager of
the Newberry Cotton Mill upon the
death of Mr. II. C. Robertson. In 1899,
upon the death of James N. Martin, he
was made president of the mill, in a(
dition to his other duties. Under his
management the mill has been re
markably successful and he hud the
confidence and the esteem and the love
of the operatives and those under him
as few men have who hold similar posi
tions. He was Chairman of the Board
of Deacons of the Presbyterian Church
and a liberal supporter of the Church.
In 1878 Mr. McCrary was married to
Miss Clara Johnstone, daughter of the
late Chancellor Job Johnstone. As
clerk, as bank officer, as mill president,
as husband, as citizen, Mr. McCrary
measured up to the true man. He was
a good citizen and an upright gentle
man and his sudden taking oil is a great
loss to this community. He was 53
years of age. The funeral services will
be held to-morrow afternoon from the
residence at 5 o'clock and interment im
mediately after at the Johnstone burial
ground, about two miles east of New
berry. It was only yesterday after
noon at the same hour that Mr. Mc
Crary attended the burial in this same
grave yard of his wife's aunt, Miss Re
becca Dewall. The Newberry Mill
closed to-day at noon and will remain
closed until Friday.?Special News and

VOTED OUT IN NEWBERRY.
Despite the Efforts of Senator Blease Dis
pensary Badly Defeated.
Newberry, Aug. 30.?Here in the
home of chairman H. H. Evans and
Blease, his champion, the dispensary
was knocked out yesterday by a vote
which was early estimated at more than
two to one. The result was not a sur
prise to the advocates of the law, for
they realized immediately after the
Spartanburg investigation, that the evi
dence of corruption and graft had chang
ed sentiment and while many citizens
may have doubted the effectiveness of
prohibition, they wanted to register a
stinging rebuke to the system so bittirly
condemned the better element in South
The first fourteen precincts reported
showed 237 votes for the dispensary
witq 783 against it. There arc 24 pre
cincts in the county. The result cannot
be changed by the vote at tho other

YOUNG WHITE MAN
KILLED IN WRECK.
Willie Hottal of Spartan
burg the Victim.
THE TRAIN PARTED.
Section of Through Freight No. 14,
Wrecked Near Waterloo With
Williie Hottal, aged 18, son of Mr. J.
K. Hottal of Spartanburg, was killed
and three or four negro employees of
the railroad were more or less injured
in a wreck on the Charleston & West
ern Carolina Railway between Cole Point
and Waterloo, nine miles South of Laa
rens, last Wednesday night shortly after
The wreck was caused by the rear
section of through freight No. 14, south
bound, becoming detached and running
into the other portion of the train. The
detached section was composed of ser
eral shanty cars and the caboose and it
seems that young Hottal was on the
foremost platform or the steps of the
uncoupled section when it crashed into
the other section, which was being
slowed down gradually, striking a box
car with tcrritic and death-dealing force.
Mr. Hottal's body was crushed and
mangled in a terrible manner and the
several darkies within the same car
were badly hurt. The body of Mr.
Hottal was taken to Waterloo and pre
pared for shipment to his family at
Spartanburg while the negroes were
carried on to Greenwood.
Young Hottal came to Laurens the
evening before from Greenville and he
told some of his friends here that ho
was going back to the Mountain City
next morning, being employed there as
fireman on a switch engine in the
Southern Railway yards. He had done
similar work in Spartanburg and for a
time he ran between that city and Aug
usta as newsboy.
The track was obstructed only a few
hours by reason of the wreck and by
nine o'clock Thursday morning trains
were running through.

Last Wednesday night on the planta
tion of Mr. H. J. G. Curry, Dials town
ship, George Gilliand was fatally shot
by John Evans, another young negro of
the community. Gilliland lingered a
few days, dying Saturday night as the
result of tho wound. The inquest waa
held on Sunday by Magistrate H el lams
and the verdict of the jury was in ac
cordance; with the facts stated above.
It seems that Gilliland was whipping
a negro woman, said to be his aunt,
when Evans interferred. Gilliland re
sented this and attacked Evans with
his knife whereupon Evans drew hi?
pistol and fired upon Gilliland. Evans
has given himself up to the sheriff.
