AS TO SCHOOL HOUSES.
jn the little town of Collinwood, O.,
last week 165 children lost their lives
in a school ho?se. Fire broke out I at
the bottom of the principal stairway,
and escape was cut off. A back door,
it seems, was closed. The front "door
opened inward and the poor little chil
dren massed against it and were suffo
cated, trampled and burned. Several
teachers also lost their lives.
A similar accident might occur in
Greenwood, Laurens or Clinton. At an
amateur performance in the village of
Boyertown. Pa., nearly 200 persons
wero burned to death last year.
A competent architect should be em
ployed to inspect all the school houses
of more than one story in Laurens, and
to report whether or not the doors are
properly hung, the ways out sufficient
and the tire escapes provided, as they
While it may not be practicable to
tear down school houses wrongly con
structed, many of them can be im
proved so that in case of fire some acci
dents would be avoided.
Moreover, trustees of schools should
see that in every school the "fire drill"
is regularly practiced.
HEALTH AMONG SOLDIERS.
The wonderful progress of the Japa
nese is illustrated by their mastery of
medicine, surgery and sanitation. In
their army establishment they seem to
have surpassed all other nations in life
saving. The following is taken from a
speech of Representative Humphreys,
of Mississippi, delivered in Congress a
few days ago:
"On the first of May. .1905, the Japa
nese had lost in killed during the war to
that date 43,892 men. Suppose her
death rate from disease had borne the
same ratio to her killed as England's
had in the Boer War?that is, seven to
one. Her deaths then would have
reached the appalling figure of 307,044.
To whom, then, shall we give the glory
of the victory at Metre Hill and Muk
den? To the general who commanded,
or to the surgeon who had preserved
from death the men who composed this
mighty army of 253,152 fighting men
who, but for the skill, but for the mas
terful administration' of a matchless
hospital system, would have been sleep
ing upon that silent field?
"Where glory guards with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead."
We hope that the United States will
never have a war with the Japanese,
but the point is clear that the United
States would bo wise to turn its serious
attention to improving the health of its
soldiers. In the war with Spain we
lost many more men by disease than by
bullets. Besides, sickness in the army
piles up the pension outlay.
WILL BE KNOWN AS "SENATOR.'?
The Hon. Frank B. Gary, a member
of the House of Representatives from
Abbeville, was elected to fill the un
expired term of Senator Latimer last
week. He has the reputation of being
a very fair average lawyer, and there
is nothing against him as a gentleman
of upright character and decent living.
He is a better man than are some of
the gentlemen who were voted for. We
would have supported Mr. Coker or Col.
Mauldin, but with them excepted we
think Mr. Gary is as good as any other
of the candidates who were announced.
The Legislature appears to have
taken the position that the prize was
one to be given to a member of the
Legislature who would promise not to
run for the long term. Senator Tillman
ten days ago ridiculed this position, and
the election of Mr. Gary is therefore
another slap in the Senator's face. We
think the Senator was right. Senator
Gary will have practically no oppor
tunity to accomplish anything. He will
be allowed to make a little speech or
two and to get u row little jobs for his
constituents?possibly to work through
an appropriation for n court house. He
will draw the salary, have a 'fine old
time and be known hereafter as "Sena
tor Gary." He was formerly a clerk
in the House of Representatives, was
afterwards speaker, has served as spe
cial judge and has run for governor
and lieutenant governor without being
elected. He has thns been constantly,
almost, in active politics since ho was a
very young man.
On the whole, as politics go in South
Carolina now, and as distinguished
ability and merit are not counted in the
selection of officeholders as they were
at one time, Mr. Gary is.a fairly lucky
choice for the State, because he is a
decent, hard-working man who pays
his debts and bears a good name in his
community. Things have reached such
a point in this State that wc breathe
easy when a drunkard or a grafter is
not elevated to high position.
The objection that too many of the
Gary family are given office is, to our
mind, absurd. If we had a dozen broth
ers of pronounced ability and character
willing to accept office, and they were
the best men offering, th?y ought to be
elected. A n.shouid no more be held
responsible for his kinfolk who aic able
and strong and good than for those
who are tramps and rapscallions.
But, of course, the Legislature
pnvn iiuTt* oiecvtr?! int? man ?v no con hi
give thvvety beet*?rviceto tfcv State,
and it seems to us it could have been
only by electing a man who dqM

Hawkinsville, Gat, March .5.-'-Two
negroes, Curry Robertson and John

and'their 'bodies' biirnffrJ.' They were
charged with the murder of Mr. and
Mrs; Warren Hart.
One of the negVoes confessed to the
crime and said that the motive was rob

rested Wednesday following the dis
covery of the body of Warren Hart.
His wife was lying nearby in an uncon
scious condition. The m?rder took
place; near Frar.ier, the home of Harts.
Mr, Hart had been killed as the re
sult of a blow on the head, apparently
made with an axe. Mrs. Hart was se
riously beaten and was found uncon
scious. She died Wednesday night
without having recovered consciousness.

Editor of Advertiser:
The frequency with which one reads
in the daily papers of the occurrence of
fires fand stampedes of crowds that have
assembled in theatres, halls and audito

gest to our city fathers that they could

than to expend what will be necessary
to provide more exits at our own Opera
House. The tax payers of this city
would say that money bo Bpent had
been well spent, I am sure. The loss of

grets that would-follow a disaster*-of
this kind in our midst must be pre

To the Honorable the Senate and House

Owing to the fact that the funds of

sought to be takpn from their hands
and to be administered by'the United
States court without the consent of

And as the autonomy of the State
must be maintained, and the right to

preserved; -and feeling that you realize
the great principle of State sovereignty
and the rights of a State under the
constitution of the United States,

Spartanburg, March 4.- The fuhcral

the man and the city in which ho lived.

wood. Gaffney and ?titer ? places were
represented. There were from forty to
fifty ministers of the Gospel in attend
ance. The students of Woffordattend
ed in a body. Many citizens of the
county attended, for he was well known,
especially by the older people. A great
abundance of flowers we're sent in by

and a largo audience attended and a

vice. Several of the ministers present
took part in the prayer and reading of
Dr. J. C. Kilgo, president of Trinity
College, North Carolina, by request,
made the leading address. He stated
that the solemnity of the occasion, the
sorrow caused by the passing of Bishop
Duncan and the strong personal attach
ment he had for him would hinder
somewhat a clear, disci iminating sketch
of his life and the nobility of his char
acter. In an expressive manner ho
touched on some of tho salient points
of his character?as circuit rider, pro
fessor in WofTord and overseer of the
church. His genuine manhood, keen
insight, his ability to command were
united with a sense of justice, gentle
ness and kindness. He was untiring in
labors, always ready to do the work set
before him, and in deeds of kindness
and charity he abounded. He was rec
ognized as a great man, a great leader,
a great preacher, a great commander in
any assembly where he appeared. He
felt that he was called for special work,
and he did it with all his might.
He was followed in a short address
by Bishop Candler, of Georgia. He
dwelt more on his ability as a Bishop,
giving several instances illustrating his
remarkable tact in difficult matters,and
his careful examination of all questions)
submitted and his fearless action when
his mind was made up. He also paid a
high tribute to his gentleness and kind
ness in his own home and in the homes
he visited. He made friends from
Maryland to the Pacific, and never con
sidered any labor too arduous if the
cause of the church demanded it. A
good man, a great preacher, a fine pre
siding officer has been lost to the

Stock Gambling Transactions.
Washington, March 3. With the ob
ject of ascertaining if possible the ex
tent of stock gambling transactions,
Mr. Tillman, of South Carolina, offered
in the Senate today a resolution calling
on the Comptroller of the Currency for
a detailed statement of the loans made
by the national banks in New York City
for the six months ended December 1
last that were based on stock collateral,
together with a list of the stocks so
pledged, and whether such loans were
passed upon by the boards of directors
of the banks.
In explanation of Iiis resolution Mr.
Tillman said that "stock gambling was
recognized as the most pernicious, dan
gerous and devilish of all the perni
cious, dangerous and devilish things
done in New York." He referred to
the bill introduced yesterday by Repre
sentative Hepburn to place a prohibit
ive tax on such transactions, and Mr.
Tillman was sure that something should
be done in that line.
Senator Aldrich asked why he con
fined his inquiry to New York City
alone. There were dealings in stocks
in other parts of the country.
"Because," Mr. Tillman snapped oat,
"that is the head center of all the
Mr. Aldrich suggested that the reso
lution be extended to all such transac
tions, and Mr. Tillman acquiesced, af
ter stating that he thought the labor
required would take too long. He
would take any other typical city that
Mr. Aldrich would name. Mr. Aldrich
then objected to present consideration
of the resolution, and it went over.- N.
