LAURENS, S. C, NOVEMBER 13, 1907.
The financial situation is a little bet
ter this week than last week. The
North will not bo satisfied unless the
South turns loose its cotton at ten cents
and under, and the good signs are in
creasing that the Southern farmers arc
holding beautifully. Within a few
months the price of cotton should go
up. If we had it we would hold it.
The elections last week were a dog
fall. Roosevelt's man, Burton, was
beaten for mayor of Cleveland. Tam
many was successful in New York city.
Maryland was carried by the Democrats.
Kentucky went over to the Republicans
in spite of the stump-speaking through
the state of William Jennings Bryan.
Bryan got less consolation out of the
voting than anybody. Of course the
Democrats were beaten in Bryan's own
state, Nebraska,?they always are.
New Jersey almost went to the Demo
crats but didn't. Massachusets was
carried by the Republicans, the Demo
crats having thrown away their chances
by a split.
The most significant features of the
elections were the blow dealt to Roose
velt by the defeat of Burton in Cleve
land and the blow landed on Bryan by
the defeat of the Democrats in Ken
tucky. The country is getting a little
weary of these two brethren.
SHOULD ANSEL RUN?
Perhaps before this article is pub
lished the doubt as to whether Gover
nor Martin Ansel will be a candidate
for the United States Senate will be
settled, and we hope that it will be.
Gov. Ansel has an inalienable right to
run for the Senate, if that be his wish,
and it will have to be considered in his
favor that he has, so far, made an ex
cellent governor. He has attended
strictly to his business, the business of
his ofTice, and he has made mighty few
mistakes. He has been a very positive
man in office, and his record has utterly
confounded those of his critics who in
sisted when he was a candidate that he
lacked firmness and decision of charac
ter. We have had few governors who
have been so careful and just in the
exercise of the pardoning power, and
we think he has been moved by patri
otic considerations in all of his import
Should Gov. Ansel become a candi
date for the Senate, he will disappoint
his friends, including thousands of
those who are chiefly responsible for
his election as governor. At the be
ginning of the campaign of 1900 he
was taken up by the advocates of local
option because he was deemed to be the
strongest candidate who stood for that
principle. On this point his views were
unequivocal; they were circulated all
over South Carolina in a poster, and
wherever a voter was to be found who
believed that decent government de
pended ipon the destruction of the
State dispensary and the substitution
of local option for it he chose Ansel as
Iiis man to support?a choice which
nearly every newspaper in the State
opposed to the State dispensary com
But the local option principle is not
yet safe. It will be attacked in the
next campaign. If Gov. Ansel is not
its defender, and is a candidate for an
other office, he will be accused of run
ning away from a fight after having
collected the rewards when it was half
over. We do not think he will be a
candidate for Senator. We do not see
bow he can bring himself to be, and,
entertaining for him the highest regard
now as always, we declare our confi
dence that he will stand by his princi
ples through another campaign and not
retire from the governorship at a time
when retirement will plunge the people
into an unpleasant contest for which
they are not hungry. Of course there
are plenty of good men who might be
elected governor, but nobody wants a
gubernatorial race next year. Should
Gov. Ansel announce himself promptly
as a candidate for re-election, he would
have no serious opposition; we do not
think he could be beaten for governor;
his record is too clean and strong and
good for the people to refuse him an
other term; but his refusal to run
again would be explained by his ene
mies as due to cold, calculating uelfish
ness that puts the public interest in
second place beside his personal ambi
We do not know yet who will be the
candidates against Senator Latimer.
As between Latimer and Ansel The
Advertiser would probably not be es
pecially solicitous about the result. We
cherish nothing against Mr. Latimer,
though we do not regard him as a
heavyweight, but we could not be en
thusiastic at this time for Gov. Ansel
as a candidate for the Senate, though
we reserve the privilege of changing
our mind every day or two until the
elecion is decided. If Gov. An
sel should be a candicate for Senator
the credit that he won by an excellent
administration as governor would bo
endangered. In no event will the
chioce be limited to Latimer and Ansel.
Should Mr. John Gary Evans, Mr.
(icorge Johnstone, Mr. Daniel S. Hen
derson, Mr. Joseph A. McCullough and
Congressman Asbury F. Lever be can
didates, each of them would, in our
judgment, stand as good a chance to
lead in the first primary au would either
Mr. Latimer or Mr. Ansel. Of course,
if Ex-Governor Heyvard should enter
that would upeet all calculations: and
the State has some other excellent ma
terial. Ex-Governor John C. Sheppard
would make a fine Senator, so would G.
D. Bellinger, so would others; and we
have in mind one whom we may name

BANKERS MEET IN COLUMBIA.
Pinn to Ease the Stringency in Moving
Columbia, November 6. ? About thirty
members of the South Carolina Bank
ers' Association, including Mr. W. D.
Morgan, of Georgetown, president,
met in Columbia today. These gentle
men represented the "finances" of
practically every banking town in the
State. They adopted a resolution that
is a compliment to the banking institu
tions of Columbia and Charleston.
If the request of the State bankers
is complied with, there will be an im
mediate easement of the stringency,
and the banks will be able to give
much more assistance to the cotton
growers. It was decided to ask the
association of banks in the two cities
named to issue clearing house certifi
cates to take tho place, locally, of
other forms of cash that have been
drawn to the great centers and held
The following resolution was unani

in New York have resulted in a scarcity
of actual currency, so much needed at

the South, while our banking institu

have ever been; and

currency is also depressing the price of
our products and causing them to be

ing of bankers of South Carolina, do
"1. That the clearing house associa
tion of Columbia and Charleston be re
quested to issue clearing house certifi
cates for the general relief of such con
ditions in this State as is above de
"2. And that all banks in the State
be requested to urge the use of such
certificates in lieu of currency until
conditions again become normal."
If the banks of Columbia and Charles

request, these certificates will be ac

South Carolina, and will, therefore, be
as good as gold for any use in this

Gov. Ansel Issues Proclamation, Fixing
28th for Day of Thanks.
Last Thursday Gov. Ansel issued his
first Thanksgiving proclamation, nam
ing Thursday, Nov. 28, as a day to
cease from all labor and assemble in
places of worship for the purpose of
returning thanks to Almighty Cod for
the many blessings that have been be
stowed on the people during the past
year. The governor says:
In conformity to a beautiful custom
established by our forefathers and per
petuated by the religious sentiment
of our people, I, M. F. Ansel, Gover
nor of the State of South Carolina, do
hereby designate and appoint Thursday,
the 28th day of November, 1907, as a
day of general thanksgiving.
The State of South Carolina has been
signally blestted during the past year.
We have enjoyed the liberty and se
curity guaranteed by a peaceful gov
ernment; we have advanced in educa
tion and morality; our material re
sources have developed; our fields have
yielded their harvests in great abund
ance; we have been spared from fam
ine and pestilence, and no public ca
lamity has befallen the commonwealth.
Let all the people, therefore, put
aside their usual vocations upon the
day herein appointed, assemble in their
houses of worship and in their homes
to return thanks to Almighty God for
his wonderful love and mercy to us as
a people and as a State, and for the
manifold blessings he has bestowed up
Let us, also, on this day of thanks
giving and praise, remember the poor
and needy, the widow and fatherless,
the sick and distressed and the orphan
ages In our State with words of com
fort and cheer, and with our gifts. Out
of our abundance let us enrich and
make glad the unfortunate, realizing
that the greatest of Chistian virtues is

THE Pfl?Y OF A GRIZZLY.
By ? LIU to Ovsrsight Bruin Was Rob
bed of ? Good Meal.
In the early settlement of California
grizzly bears wore numerous and trou
blesome, but few men ever had a more
singular experience with a grizzly than
Paul Sweet, who kept a tannery near
8anta Cruz. The story is told by Mrs.
Dnll In "My First Holiday."
Mr. Sweet was one day walking
alone lu tho woods when be came sud
denly upon a grizzly bear and her two
cubs. He was quite unarmed, and be
fore be bad time to consider any plan
Of action tho bear was upon him. She
struck him down, but he kept his pres
euce of mlud nnd lay perfectly quiet.
The grizzly stood over hlui for a mlu
uto or uiore, then seized him by the
waistband and began dragging him
along! He did not resist, aud she drag
ged him for a dozen rods to a Uttlo
sandy hollow, where sho dropped him
and began digging n bole In tho sand.
Into this hole she rooted the man, and
thc'i nosed and pawed the sand over
htm until ho was buried from sight.
The prudent animal, not being hungry
at tho moment, was innklug n cache
of her prey.
Mr. Sweet's heart lightened ns he
realized the brute's intentions, and ho
began to hope that he might escape.
Ho waited a few minutes after tho
bear had covered him In, and then,
thinking that sho had retired from tho
scene, he bogan to work himself freo
very cautiously. Tho grizzly was on
tho watch, howevor, and at the first
movement of hor prey rushed to the
spot and with two or three strokes of
her paw snugly tuekod him in again.
Mr. Sweet instantly became motion
lass again and allowed himself to be
roburled In the sand. Luckily his hat
had slipped over his face, so that the
sand did not fill his nose and eyes, and
by raising his head a little he was able
to throw off tho sand sufficiently to
He was more wary next time and lay
Btill for an hour or two until he felt
pretty suro that the grizzly had retired
from the spot. Very cautiously then
ho worked himself free from the sand j
and crept away.

was known to the officers of the patent
office as a persistent applicant for pat
ents. When his great iuveutlon of
"distance writing" was nbout eomplet- j
ed he wanted the Baltimore and Ohio j
Railway company to try it.
To get rid of him tho president of
the road turned him over to a subor
dlnate. This official was struck with
the beauty of the invention nnd became i
so interested in it that ho sat up half
the night discussing It with tho in
ventor. At length Morse confessed
there was only one thing which baf
fled hlui. "As long as the railroad
runs,'* he said, "where poles may be
erected It will be easy sailing, but when
we come to the big bridges what is to
be done then? We can't erect poles
across the stream, and without them
the who would sag and perhaps break j
from its own weight. I confess I don't
know what to do. Can't you suggest |
a way out of the difficulty?
"Why don't you fasten the wires to
the bridge?" asked his companion
without a moment's hesitation. For
a moment Morse gazed at him, with
open mouth, and then exclaimed:
"Why not, indeed? Why, I never
thought of that. It's the very way."

GIRL WORKED AS MAN.
Earned Living as Clerk in Man's Clothes
When Deserted by Husband.
New York, Nov. G. ? "It's as easy as
rolling off a log for a girl to disguise
herself as a boy and to keep her iden
tity unknown in thj;; city," said Mrs.
Natalie Clark, who says her real name
is Mrs. C. S. Pool. "I have done it
fiye years right under the eyes of tho
Pinkcrtons and the police,
"Not only that, but I have earned
my living as a clerk in a jewelry storo
in ono place for three years and in a
Maiden Lane shop for three months.
There never was a moment when I felt
fear of detection."
The young woman told yesterday of
the adventures that had happened to
her during the five years in which she
dressed and appeared as a dapper
In spite of her arrest for masquerad
ing as a man, Mrs. Pool is so entranced
by the freedom of the life, and also by
the comfort of masculine attire, that
she declared yesterday that as soon as
she could disguise to outwit the police
again she was going back to men's
"While I believe it is far healthier
for a woman to wear men's attire, dis
card corsets and lead an outdoor life, I
can tell you from actual knowledge
that it is far more expensive to dress
as a man tban as a girl.
"I found that just by wearing men's
clothes I lost a lot of the petty traits
inherent in my sex, and I learned to
look at things from a far broader point
of view. I have been married twice,
but I will never marry again, for I in
tend to lead the life in which I have
had my greatest happiness?as a man?
if I can do so without being detected.''
Mrs. Pool gives as her reason for as
suming male attire that she wanted to
find her husband, who had deserted her
and who frequented the cafes and pool
rooms of the Tenderloin.
"I knew I could not go to those
places as a woman, so one day I made
up my mind to see how I made up as a
boy. I have always lived in the West,
and, as I am strong and robust, I found
the clothes looked very well indeed on
me?so well that I scarcely recognized
She says she was married to C. S.
Pool, a salesman in the Little Church
Around the Corner, in March, 1896,
and that afterward her husband fell in
to an inheritance and deserted her.
"I have often seen him in cafes and
restaurants with other women, but he
never recognized me in my boy's
clothes," she said. "I would sit at the
next table and hear him converse about
various things, hoping in this way to
learn his address, but I have never
been able to find that out. I am seek
ing him to be released from him."
She says she is the daughter of a
Russian princess and that her father,
who is dead, was a captain on a ship
plying between Seattle and Alaska.
She was born in Alaska, and she says
there is Indian blood in her family.
She is a comely young woman, and
there are distinct traces of her Indian
parentage in her dark face and brown
