.cretary of War Holds Up Selection
of Camp Site Pending Adjustment of
Washington, April 1G.-Secretary of
War Garrison announced tonight that
he was holding up the selection of a
site for the annual summer maneu
vers of the militias of Florida, Geor
gia, South Carolina and North Caro
lina, -pending the adjustment of the
latest clash between Gov. Cole L.
dlease, of South Carolina, and the
The Isle of Palms, near Charleston,
S. C., had been selected by the mili
tia adjutants general and the war de
partment, but was not approved be
cause of vigorous obsjections from
(lovernor Illease, who complained
that he had not been consulted. La
ter the department received a tele
gram fron the governor urging the
sdlection of the site.
lonllplussed by this development,
Secretary Garrison asked the gover
mor to withdraw one or the other of
his communications, but the governor
refused, insisting if the Isle of Palms
was chosen he must be consulted.
Now Representative Whaley, of South
Carolina, has undertaken to straight
em out the tangle.
Still Up in the Air.
The matter of selecting the site
for the encampment and maneuvers
of the southern militia this summer
is still' up in the air, but it is expected
that a final decision will be announced
within the next day or no. Oflicials
at the war department are very reti
cent, and it is hard to get anybody
else to talk.
As was announced several weeks
ago, it was stated that Charleston
bad been selected. Most people
thought that was the end of it, but
there were developments.
Congressman Ragsdale for some
reason was dissatisfied with Charles
ton, and favored Greenville, and he
went to the war department and sue
coeded in getting the matter reopen
Then came the explanation that an
army officer had been sent to Char
leston, Greenville and other cities that
wanted the encampment to look over
the different sites offered and report
as to which seemed to be the best, but
that the oflicer, instead of submitting
a report to the department for ap
proval, had gone ahead and decided
the matter for himself and had even
made some contracts in connection
with the encampment on behalf of 'the
government. Mr. Garrison, the secre
tary of war, was much surprised when
he learned what the army oillcer had
done, and he forthwith issued a per
emptory order revoking the officer's
decision. Upon further investigation,
however, it ivas found that the army
edicer was acting within his legal
nights, that he had authorly under
1be law to make the selection, and to
make preliminary contracts for the
use of land, supplies, etc. It looks now
as it 'may be decided that the govern
ment is bound by the army officer's
action, and that the encanmpment
m'ay go to Charleston after all. At
least this statement was made today
by a gentleman here who has been
keeping in close touch with the mat
Congressman Whaley, who repre
bents the Charleston district, was
much surprised when he learned what
had been done in revoking the order
for the encampm)Ient to go to Charles
ton, and ho has been working hard
to hold It for his town. Congress
man Johnson, of course, has been
anxious for it to go to Grmeenville, and
has worked hard for that town, hut
he made his fight some time ago and
thought it had been lost when the an
inouncement was made that Charles
ton. had been selected, Ile was much
erprised when ho learned that Mr.
Etgsdale had succeeded in having the
matter reop~ened, but lhe has been
very earnest since then in urging the
daims of Greenville. J. Thomas Arun
dd and other citizens of Greenville
'were hecre several (days ago and wvent
4. the war department and make a
sttong Ilea for their town.
As stated, the matter seems to be
'very much up in the air. Mr. Whaloy
AIll thinks lhe will land the encamp
ment for Charleston, but others seemi
to think the enmp~ment will go else
'where. It is an interesting situation,
and there are some who think the final
result of the scramblp may be that
'the encampment will not be held in
M0uth Carolina at all but may go to
some other state.

E. W. Duvall, of Cheraw, to Rin for
Lieutentnt Governor? Report Reach.
Colu-mbia, -April 14.-That Mr. E.
Walker Duvall, of Cheraw, may enter
the race for Lioutant Governor is the
information brought to Columbia to
day. It was stated that strong pres
sure is being brought to bear on Mr.
IDuvall to run and it is said that he is
giving consideration to the matter. Mr.
Duvall ran agalist Lieutenant Gover
nor C. A. Smith four years ago and
polled a fine vote. He is the head of
one of the largest business concerns in
Chesterfield county and'is well known
throughout the state. Political circles
concede that if Mr. Duvall enters the
race for Lieuteant Governor he will
be a most formidable opponent.
Representative George W. Dick, of
Sumter the chairman of the ways and
means committee of the House, was
here today attending a meeting of the
sinking fund commission. Dr. Dick is
being urged to stand for re-election
to the House so that his friends can
put him up for Speaker, and he is
being urged also to enter the race for
the State Senate from Sumter coun
ty, and if he should go in against Sen
ator John If. Clifton and Representa
tive R. D. Epps, the Sumterites will
have three strong candidates to pick
from. Dr. Dick would not say today
what he would (10, in fact, he gave the
impression that he was undecided.
Senator P. L. Hardin, of Chester,
the chairman of the finance commit
tee of the Senate and President pro
ten of that body, was here today, also,
in attendance on the sinking fund
commission meeting. Senator Hardin
has been urged to run for Lieutenant
Governor, but it is probable that he
will stand for re-election to the Sen
ate from Chester, a position he has
trice been elected to without oppo
Itepresentatives .J. A. Hunter, of
Ilamberg, and .1. lloward Moore, o:
Abbeville, are already anmounced can
