Berrj Kcmlrlck Humphries,
Perry Kondrlck Humphries, a for
mer citizen of Gaffney, died at Lau
rens last Thursday. P. K. Humphries
was a true and loyal son of South
Carolina. lie was a merchant but
was always interested in the affairs
of the SthtO and was outspoken in
every issue that effected the people,
and he was always to be found on the
right side of every great moral ques
tlon. lie loved Gaffney ami Chero
kee and was proud of the town anil
county and delighted to recount the
achievements of our people, glorying
in anything they did that tendered
to upbuild and uplift. The State is
the poorer for his passing. Peace bo
to his SOUl.?Gaffney Ledger.
Rebuke for Please.
The verdict of guilty returned by
the jury in United States Hist riet
Court last evening against the Pal
mers and Belchor is a distinct rebuke
for Governor Please. who pardoned
those people after they had served a
short time for their crime.
As is known J. 11. Palmer, Charles;
II. Palmer, his son. Lou Bolchor, his
daughter, and Robert Belcher, Ills j
grandson, were tried in the state
court at Walhalla for the murder of
W. P. F. Corhln, a revenue ofllcor.
All four weil- convicted. .?. B. Pal
mer was sentenced to servo six years
in the penitentiary, Lou Bclchbr
eight years. Charles Palmer seven
years and Robert Belcher lite. .1. p.
Palmer's sentence was suspended be
cause of his old OgO.
Qovornor Please last year commut
ed the sentences of Lou Bolchor and
Charles P. Palmer from eight and sev
en years respectively to twenty-two
months, which time they have served.
As soon as this action was taken by
the Qovornor, the Federal government
took the matter up, being unwilling to
see those who had a hand in the slay
ing of a federal ofllclnl get off so
lightly by reason of the action of a
And now these parties have been
convicted in the Federal court and
will have to serve their sentences any
way. That twelve men of the state
decided they had not been punished
sufficiently Is a rebuke for Mr.
Please. The question naturally arises:
Have all of his pardons been granted
as carelessly as this one? If It were
possible for twelve men to pass upon
each of the pardons granted by the
chief executive how many of them
would be approved?
As we sec it the action taken by the
Federal government in this ense.
which was exceedingly unusual, was
a rebuke to the governor and the ver
dict of twelve citizens of the state that
these people had not been sufficiently
punished was an ever greater one.?
SOLDIERS HAVE BIO DAY.
Ladles Served Dinner lo a Large Num.
her of the Old Veterans iu the Ar
The ladies of the city served the
annual dinner to the old veterans of
the county in the Traynham Guards
armory Saturday. A large number of
the old soldiers were here, probably
about eighty, and a pleasant day was
had of it. The ladies had prepared
a very bountiful dinner, to which was
done full justice by the entire "com
mand". Because some of the Clinton
veterans were delayed on account of
a wreck, the dinner was not served
until about one o'clock. Hut after
the good things were put before them
and the dinner over, a vote of thanks
was given the ladies, the rebel yell be
ing given to add zest to the thanks.
During the afternoon the soldiers
gathered at various peaces In the court
house and discussed the old times. A
few stories and a few songs were sung.
A feature of the afternoon was the
singing of Veteran John B. Jones, his
favorite piece being "Richmond's a
Hard Road to Travel."
Towards evening the veterans left
for their homes to return again on
Memorial Day, May 10th.

everyone else recognizes as supremely desireablc helps mightily to make life better worth
Ownership of a motor car confers a distinction of this sort. But the distinction is in
finitely greater when that motor car belongs to a family that has class, reputation, history.
To own a champion motot car should be the aim of every wise buyer.
It's pleasant to know that a champion motor car is not necessarily an expensive one.
You can buy an F-M-F "30'' for $1100 or a Flanders "20" for $800.
Kach is the champion of its class.
The motoring world is still ringing with the marvelous feat of the three K-M-F "30"
cars that ninished one, two, thrccn in the Tideman Trophy race at savannah?the biggest
event of the year for cars of that class.
The setting of nine new world's marks for the smaller class by the Flanders "20" at
Indianapolis is a speed feat unique in the season's records.
More convincing still is the satisfactory service these cars arc doing in the haflds of
more than 50,000 owners, all over the world.
An E-M-F- "30" or Flanders "20" is the sort of car its owner likes to talk about.
