f THREATENED LIFE
OF J. FRAZER LYON.
Major John Black, Member ot State
Board of Control, Creates a Big
Sensation in Columbia.
Columbia, May 26. ?There waa a sen
sation hero today when it was annouced
that Maj. John Black, dispensary di
rector, had cursed out Mr. J. Frater
Lyon on the street before breakfast.
Maj. Black is a very excitable man and
dangerous when in a passion. Nothing
but Mr. Lyon's coolness prevented blood
sited. Maj. Black accused the investi
gating committee of going too deep into
his private affairs. He applied vile
epithets to Mr. Lyon's associate, Sena
tor Christensen, and said he felt like
blowing np Mr. Lyon on the spot. He
told Mr. Lyon to arm himself. Mr.
Lyon was on his way from his Hats to
the hotel for breakfast at Wright's.
Tho meeting occurred in front of the
Columbia Hotel. Mr. Lyon walked
back to his room a moment and when
ho returned Major Black was not
REMOVE BLACK FROM OFFICE.
Before the investigating committee.
Mr. Lyon calmly placed the information
and Senator Christensen added that last
winter Mr. Hub Evans threatened to
shoot Mr. T. W. Klingenberg, special
attorney, if the witness should go on
the stand to testify against Mr. Evans.
The committee after taking the matter
under advisement, decided to refer the
matter to the governor with the sug
gestion that Maj. Black should be re
moved from office. Gov.. Hey ward is
out of the city today.

Hobson's Election Expenses.
It comes high to run for Congress in
Alabama. In his certified statement of
election expenses, it appears that it has
cost Capt. Hobson just $6,945 to beat
Congress Bankhead. We hope it will
never come to pass in this State that it
be necessary to spend so much on a
campaign. If so, our best citizens will
remain in private life. ? Greenville
DOUBLE HANGING AT KINGSTRFE.
Two negroes Pay Death Penally for
Kingstree, May 25. ?Promptly at 1
o'clock to-day Epps Snowden was
hanged within the jail for the murder
of Bob Brown, some time in the fall of
1905. The condemned man showed no
signs of nervousness as the grim trag
edy of the law fell upon him as the
principal actor. He walked firmly from
his cell without assistance and took his
place beneath the fatal noose without a
quiver. Just before the drop, he made
a statement, saying that he had no in
tention of killing Bob Brown, the night
he went to the store and that it was all
the result of a drunken frolic. The
neck w. i not broken and he died of
Arthur McFadden was hanged as soon
as the body of Epps Snowden was taken
away from the death chamber. He
shot George Burgess at Cade's some
time last winter and was convicted of
murder at the last term of court.
Petitions for the pardon or commuta
tion of sentence were presented for
both Epps Snowden and Arthur Mc
Fadden, but in both cases the Governor
declined to interfere. McFadden, as in
the case of Snowden, was game to the
end and showed no nervousness
while the preparations were being
made. He protested his innocence to
the last and said he was being hanged
for some other man's crime. He ad
mitted that he had had a row with Bur
gess a week before and had cut him,
but claimed that he was not in Cade's
at all the night of the killing. McFad
den died of strangulation.
These two executions took place in
private within the jail and in the pres
ence of only thr. officers and a few wit
nesses. This makes five hangings in
Williamsburg since January 1st.
Fire at Hickory Tavern.
Last Thursday afternoon the cottage
of Mr. Lawrence Bolt, of the Hickory
Tavern section, in Sullivan township,
was totally destroyed by fire, together
with all his household goods. The fire
occurred about 2 o'clock in the after
noon, and is supposed to have started
from a defective sto.'e flue.
An Edgeficld Drop-Si'tch Skirt.
Yes, Maud dear, we cannot imagine
how or where you heard it, but Dr.
James S. Byrd did actually tu*; at our
arm at Red Hill last Sunday to go v*ith
him and look at what he called "a
sweet drop-stitch skirt." We said to
him: "Little boys oughtn't to be so
knowing, but still we will go with you.''
The skirt was one of fine white lawn,
worn by a tall and beautiful young girl
with blonde hair and a matchless com
plexion. It consisted entirely of finely
tucked panels six inches wide, the tucks
and panels running up and down; and
between each panel there ran, up and
down, a row of wide and extremely
thin inserting. It had no flounce or
frill, and flared out at the bottom. It
was the most beautiful skirt we saw
that day, and we said to young Dr.
Byrd: "That is a perfectly lovely
skirt, and you arc very impudent to be
calling it drop-stitch." But the young
doctor insisted that it was drop-stitch.
He said: "I think it is lovely too,
but it is sure drop-sfitch." Alas,
Muude dear, boys of the present day
are so knowingl-Col. Jas. T. Bacon, in

DECIDED IN DR. CALDWELLS' FAVOR.
Result of the Trial of Texas Divine by
Greenville, May 24.?Victory by one
vote was recorded for Dr. W. E. Cald
well, of Fort Worth, Texas, today in
the case involving charges against him.
The General Assembly of Southern
Presbyterian Church heard many argu
ments in the Caldwell case before a vote
was ordered. This resulted as follows:
Seventy-nine votes to sustain the com
plaint of Dr. Caldwell against the ac
tion of the Synod of Texas in ordering
the presbytery to dissolve the relations
between him and the First Presbyterian
Church, of Fort Worth, Texas; eleven
votes to sustain the complaint in part,
and eighty-nine votes against Dr. .Cald
well, making a majority of one vote for
the complainant. The Moderator nam
ed a special committee to investigate
and report on the eleven votes, which
were cast for partial ratification of Dr.
Only the question of the legality of
the Synod of Texas was considered.
The merits of its action were not touch
ed upon. Tho complaint charged the
Synod with acting illegally, and in the
second count with being unjust and un
fair to Dr. Caldwell. Since the first
charge is virtually sustained the second
count was withdrawn by consent when
the vote was announced.
The vote on 4he complaint was taken
by Synods, the South Carolina Commis
sioners voting as follows:
In favor of sustaining the complaint:
F. D. Jones, Bunyan McLeod, B. Duz
To sustain the complaint of Fort
Worth Session against the Synod of
W. M. McPheeters, R. A. Thompson,
J. W. Bankhead, T. J. Robins, P. A.
Emanuel, A. A. James, J. O. Temple
ton, F. E. Thomas.
To sustain the complaint against the
Synod in Dr. Caldwell's views in part:
Robert Adams, W. J. McKay, J. G.
Henderson, A. W. White, M. S. Strib
Dr. William Caldwell, pastor of the
First Presbyterian Church of Fort
Worth, Texas, entertains some views
which arc regarded as heretical by
most Presbyterians. Briefly, he was
charged with being out of harmony
with the Presbyterians Standard with
regard to the Mosaic authorship of the
Pentateuch to the historic accuracy of
the earlier chapters of Genesis, the mi
raculous element in the Old Testament,
and lastly, Caldwell holds that Christ
died not as a penal substitute instead
of man, but simply for man.
But these questions were not properly
before the Assembly. The Fort Worth
Presbytery accepted Dr. Caldwell, and
he is pastor of the First Church. Some
members of the Presbytery made com
plaint to the Synod, which referred the
matter back to the Presbytery, which
again sustained Caldwell. Then the
Synod reversed the action of the Pres
bytery. The questions before the As
semby were whether the Synod acted
legally and within the constitution, and
whether its action was unjust and mis
Some of the speakers, who have been
on the floor, confined themselves to the
matters at issue, but most of them
made some references to the answers
of Dr. Caldwell with regard to the his
torical accuracy of certain sections of
The general public will not trouble to
go into the technical details of the case,
and only the verdict will be considered.
UNION COTTON MILLS SOLD.
Bid in by the Re-organized Company
Union, May, 23.?The plant and ac
counts of the Union Cotton Mills of
which T. C. Duncan was formerly pres
ident, were sold at auction today by
Christie Bennett, who was appointed by
the federal court to conduct the sale.
The property was bid in by Wm. Elli
ott of Columbia, attorney for the Union
and Buffalo Mills, the purchase price
being $1,238,400, being just $32.74 more
than the upset price fixed by the Fed
eral court. The bid by Mr. Elliott was
the only one made. Mr. Robertson re
quired the deposit of a certified check
The plant was purchased by Mr. El
liott for the re-organized committee,
and the company will continue the op
eration of plant. Since the reorgani
zation committee has had charge of the
affairs of the mill it is understood that
it has been making money.
The goods in the mill were appraised
by A. W. Smith of Spartanburg, H. L,
Moody of Victor Mills, and T. J. Brit
ton of Spartan Mills.
DEATH OF MISS MONTGOMERY.
Due to an Over-dose of Laudanum Taken
Spartanburg, May 23.? Miss Marie
Montgomery, the eldest daughter of
Mr Victor Montgomery of this city,
died this morning at 11 o'clock. Death
was from the result of an overdose of
laudanum, which drug the young lady

Miss Montgomery retired last night
at her usual hour, and this morning at

CLAIMS ABOUT SETTLED.
Congressman Johnson's Efforts to Secure
$147.00 for Pcttitt Heirs.
Washington, May 23. ? Representative
Johnson is about to get an old claim
settled that will be of interest to sev
eral people in Spartanburg county.
At the breaking out of the war B. F.
Pettitt, of Spartanburg county, had a
contract for carrying the mails from
Glenn Springs to Laurens. When the
war began he had to stop his work, and
the goverment owed him $147. Nothing
could be done toward the collection of
this claim as long as the war lasted,
and since hostilities ceased nothing has
been done with the claim until recently.
A short time ago Mr. Johnson took it
up, and he said today that he had just
succeeded in having the house pass the
claim. This means that the heirs of
Pettitt living in Spartanburg county
will shortly receive the money?$147?
that has been due for so long.? Spar

What Newberry Gets in the Way of
Bellcr Mail Service.
With evident disgust the Newberry
Observer last Friday printed on its lo
cal page the following item:
"There has been a demand for some
lime for mail on the C. N. and L. early
morning and evening trains?and we
have got it with a vengeance. The

a. m., daily except Sunday.
"The only effect of this worth men
tioning is that it will compel the post
oflice employes to be at the postoflice
to open that 'locked pouch' ?which will
have no mail in it of any consequence?
none whatever from this side of Co

HELP HARD TO GET.
Spartanburg Mills Experiencing Trouble

Says the Spartanburg Journal:
The cotton mills in this county are
having considerable difficulty in se
curing sufficient help in the mills to op

mand for operatives is general through
out the entire county, and the condi
tions here are said to exist in mills in
other sections of the State.
The demand for labor in the mills has
been increasing for several months ow
ing to the fact that many of the mill
operatives have quit the mills and re
turned to the country to work on

VACATION FOR R. F. D. CARRIERS.
Fifteen Days Rest Annually With Full
Pay is Assured.
Washington, May 24.?An annual va
cation of fifteen days, with full pay,
is assured the rural free delivery car
riers of the country, by the terms of
an amendment which Senator Clay
succeeded in having incorporated upon
the post-office committee today.
Senator Clay will made every en
deavor to secure the retention of this
provision when the bill gets before the
Senate, and there is good reason to ex
pect ho will be successful, as there
were but two votes against his amend
ment in tho committee. The hard fight
will be to induce the house leaders to
agree to the amendment when tho bill
gets to conference, but with the strong
favorable sentiment among tho mem
bers of the house, it is believed this
can bo done.
With the vacation provision engraft
ed upon the laws, it will remain a fix
ture for this bmnch of the service, as
it is of other branches, and increase
of annual pay will come later. Other
important amendments affecting the
rural delivery were placed upon the
bill by Senator Clay and the friends of
this branch of the service.
A total appropriation for rural deliv
ery of $28,700,000 is carried by the bill
as it passes from the hands of the Sun
ate committee. This is about a million
more than the estimates of the postofllce
The object of this increase is made
plain by certain provisions adopted.
One of these is that there is to be no
discontinuance of the rural free mail
delivery service where it has once been
established. Another is that the work
of establishing the service in other
directions shall continue with the ulti
mate aim of carrying the benefits of
the service of every farm house in the
entire country. This means that in the
not far future the rural sections of all
States will be covered by rural deliv
It is apparent that Congress does not
intend that the service shall be crip
pled, or that there shall be any discon
tinuance of the progressive policy of
The Senate committee has retained
in the bill the provision for the South
ern fast mail train, by which Atlanta
and all points beyond are given the
same mail facilities as are enjoyed by
other sections of the country.
COTTON ACREAGE STATEMENT.
An Increase of 736,228 Acres Over the
Atlanta, May 28.-The Southern Cot
ton Association by President Harvie
Jordan and Secretary Richard Cheat
ham, issued the following statement re
garding the cotton acreage for the year
"Replies received from a very large
number of our 17,000 correspondents
enables us to give out the following re
port on cotton acreage for 1906 com
pared with 1905:
SUite. 1006 acr. 1905 acr. Inc. Dec.

Virginia 375.366 383.598 0.05
Total 28,735.870 26,099,642
The statement shows an increase of
730,228 acres this year over that plant
ed in 1905, a net increnso of 2.76 per
cent. These figures are to be verified
or corrected at a meeting of the State
presidents at Jackson, Miss., May 31.
The statement further says that the
scarcity of labor, especially in Ala
bama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Ar-1
kansas will cause at least 10 per cent,
of the acreage now planted to be aban
doned on account of the lack of neces
sary hands to cultivate the crop. Frosts
about May 8 10 caused considerable
damage and replanting.
