JUDGMENT TAKEN
IN BOND CASE.
Bondsman of Will tliggins and Roy Hun*
Icr Required to Pay $2,000
At the term of court for this county,
held last week, a judgment was taken
by the Solicitor against Mr. M. B.
Poole, the large planter of Scuffletown
township, in the sum of $2,000 which
jointly represents the amount of the
bond signed by Mr. Poole in which Will
Higgins and Roy Hunter, colored, were
held pending an appeal of the case to
the Supreme Court, they having been
convicted of assault and battery with
intent to kill and given four years
each at the September 1907 court. The
Supreme Court refused to grant a new
trial. Before the next term of the
Laurens court Higgins and Hunter had
fled and arc still fugitives from the
State, although efforts have been made
to apprehend them. Information was
received here last week to the effect
that Hunter died two weeks ago In the
State of Indiana. Of course proof of
his death will be necessary before his
bondsman can be released.
Glee Club Entertainment.
The Wofford College Glee Club enter
tained a large audience in the city
opera house last Tuesday night in a
very delightful manner with songs, in
strumental music and readings. The
college has reason to be proud of its
representatives who are making a tour
of the State, for their appearance is
welcomed and the class of entertain
ment furnished is among the best of j
college productions.
The performance here was of special
interest in that Mr. W. B. Garrett, a
Laurens county boy, is the manager of
the club and also taking part in the pro
gram as reader and singer. The club
pleased the audience in a very accepta
ble manner.
The Court House Improvement.
Rumors have been heard on the
streets that the county would spend
about $5,000 on repairing and remodel
ling the court house. Supervisor Hum
bert slated yesterday that he knew
nothing of this and that thus far the
county had no intention of making any
great improvement. Hesaid, however,
that he was doing some necessary re
pair work; putting in some new win
dows and replacing rotten mouldings.
To remodel the building, he said, it
would be necessary for the legislature
to order an increase in the tax levy or
a special levy for that purpose, neither
of which has been done.
Banquet Will Be a Success.
The various comnpttees appointed to
arrange for the Furman Banquet on
July 7th have all been working hard
and from their reports it appears that
the occasion will be one of unusual
pleasure. Already a large number of
the former students have been heard
from and the expected crowd is assured.
However, there remain some yet to be
heard from. Let them kindly notify
Mr. Power at once. The program,
which is very interesting and attractive
will be published in a few days.
Farmers' Institute July 29th.
President Aiken, of the Chamber of
Commerce, yesterday received a letter

court house. The speakers of the day
are to bo: Dr. S. A. Knapp, Prof. Guy
L. Stewart and Dr. Neighbert. Mr. C.
/,. Goodrich, of the U. S. Department
of Agriculture, Judge Ceo. 10. Prince,
of Anderson.
Dog Muzzle Ordinance Pending.
At a recent meeting of the city coun
cil it was decided to pass an ordinance
requiring all dogs here to be muzzled.
The framing of the ordinance was to be
done yesterday and it is understood that
the council was to pass it last night.
If not, this ordinance will be made a
law at the next meeting.

Having noticed the numbers of calls
Upon good men to enter the race for the
Legislature and realizing that the time
demands the services of strong men of
intellect and integrity, I wish to nomi
nate Mr. Y. C. Heliams and to here
express the hope that he will consider
the matter and make the race. He is
a man of ability, possessed with strong
ideas and the moral stamina to stand by
his convictions. Laurens needs men of
his type. CITIZEN.

Mea for the Legislature.
As long as men are sent to the Legis
lature we cannot see beyond the turn of
the road, whose vision is bounded by
township or county lines, who do not
think except in a narrow circle of sel
fish purposes, little good is to be ex
pected from their deliberations. There
is oneway and one way only of lifting
the State out of the slough into which
it has fallen: Every county in the State
should send its best and wisest men to
the Legislature, not this man because
he is "the poor man's friend" about
election times, nor that man because he
represents the factional interests of his
neighborhood, but the best and most in
telligent men who could take a broad
view of political and industrial questions
in the interest of the general public.
Issues are only important when men are
chosen who can meet them. - News and

(Continued from first page.)
COL. W. W. LUMPKIN.
Col. W. W. Lutnpkin, of Confederate
oratorical fame, was next in order,
In reference to this much-bclovcd
veteran Col. August Kuhn says in Iiis
report:
"Now when it comes to word pictures
there are none who excel Col. W. VV.
Lumpkin. lie is really a silver tongued
orator. Today he chose as his canvas a
picture of the evils of drink and the
blessing of prohibition. He charms
any audience, but whether the com
mendation will come in votes remains a
problem."
Col. Lumpkin stated that if elected
he would work for the interests of the
laborers, travelling men and railroad
men, for he was of the toiling masses
himself. Col. l.umpkin's chief plea is
for State-wide prohibition.
HON. 0. B. MARTIN
Hon. 0. B. Martin is the next in al
phabetical order.
Mr. Martin, contrary to his usual
style of speaking used a manuscript at
Suinler and disappointed his hearers
by not telling his accustomed number of
jokes. His discussion dealt with tariff
reform, drainage, currency reform,
Wall Street and States rights. Con
cerning the last named Mr. Martin
said:
"As an aspirant for the seat in the
United States Senate, once held by the
immortal and illustrious Calhoun, I
feel that 1 should ho false to my duty if
I should over fail to remember the rights
and privileges of my State and of her
sister Slates. I shall always be mind
ful of that clause in the United States
Constitution which provides that "the
powers not delegated to the United
States hy tho constitution, nor prohib
ited by it to the States, are reserved
to the States respectively or to the
people." Tin' future of this country
still depends, in a large measure, upon
our ability to maintain the proper equi
librium between the Stale anil federal
governments. We need cautious and
conservatice action to prevent federal
encroachment and usurpation."
HON. R. QOODWYN RHETT.
Hon. R. Qoodwyn Rhett, mayor Of
Charleston, appeared for the first time
before an audience in that part of the
State in such a capacity. He was
greeted with warm applause.
The State has the following in refer
ence to Mr. Ilhclt'fl speech:
"Mr. Rhett made a very thoughtful
address on the tariff situation. He do
dared that currency laws of (ho Coun
try nro made for the wealthy manufac
turing classes. Tin y are based upon
the sale of bonds and bonds fluctuate to
the sorrow of the producing class. His
plan is to have- sublreasuries and na
tional banks to guarantee deposits. In
this way a national bank can issue cur
rency on a certain per cent, of its cap
italization and the currency of the
country will be available to the poor
man or to the producer at a lower rale
of interest. Mr. Rlietf made a very
line impression. He does not helicvc
in nagging at or abusing the railroads.
Lettnern make a living; let them earn
a fair margin on their investment. But
don"t let them discriminate as they had
done."
HON- E. D. SMITH.
Hon. F. D. Smith, of Florence and
president of the South Carolina divis
ion of the Cotton Association was next
among the speakers, and last in order.
The News and Courier says of him:
"Ed. Smith is and always has been an
enthusiast, and bow ho did talk I" day
about cotton and what he and the othi r
farmers could do! Ho has a beautiful
flow of language and paints word pic
tures that almost rival the classios.
Also this from Col. Banks' report in
the State:
"Mr. Smith's speech seemed to be
Very effective. It was largely along
the lines of his speeches in the campaign
to get farmers to hold their col tun for
higher prices, although it may he said
that he seems to have appreciated the
situation and have cut out some of llu
shing which, though effective in a col
ton campaign, might be inelegant in an
announcement for a seat in the house
of lords. Mr. Smith spoke of the re
lation of the cotton question to the
tarili issue."
