Indleations are that a Great Impetus
Wl be Givenl to Cattle Ralsing.
'The committee appointed at the cit
izen's meeting last londay to go to
Columbia for the purpose of having
Laurens selected as one of the con
centrating and marketing centers for
cattle returned Thursday night after
having appeared before the committe
in 'Columbia which had the matter in
charge. Although Laurens 'was not
selected as one of the marketing plac
es, the Laurens delegation did not feel
discouraged over tle possibilities for
cattle raising under the plan being
worked out by Ar. Long and his as
sodiates. Laurens county farmers will
be able to market their cattle almost
as cheaply at one of the points named
as they could have had Laurens been
selected. This is made possible by
reason of the fact that the railroad
rates from Laurens to a distant ship
ping point, Baltimore for instance,
will be the same whether shipped di
rect from Laurens or first to Green
wood or Greenville and thence to
The six cities chosen by the com
mittee were Greenwood, Greenville,
Rock Hill, Florence, Columbia and
Charleston. In each place suitable
sheds are to be provided for the as
sembling of the stock and the sales
will be conducted much as they are
on the Chicago and other stock yards.
Explaining the meaning of the
meeting, 'Mr. Long said:
"The meeting today was the most
interesting and far reaching meeting
of its character that I have ever at
tended. It will be seen from the num
bgl of towns represented and the
character of the representatives that
there is a tremendous interest in live
stock in South Carolina. I would Judge
from this meeting and the interest
that the only thing that has retarded
the development of the live stock in
terests in South Carolina has been the
question of markets and now that we
have fallen up)on a plan that gives
promise of successful marketing of
live stock, there develops an interest
in live stock, that none of us had any
idea existed in the State. Now that
these markets are more or less as
sured, because we have the backing
of the buyers, representing the largest
concerns in the North and West, such
as F.wift, iDriver, Armour & Co., and
other buyers in the North, the farm
ers of the State can begin making
preparations for the feeding of beef
cattle and hogs this fall for the winter
and spring market. There will be a
midwinter market and a spring mar
ket. The first market that will open
will be that at Greenville, in Januarv:
ten days later, Greenwood, and each
succeeding ten clays until sales dlays
have taken place at all six of the mar
kets. On the first of April there will
be the spring markets opening at
Greenville and going down the State,
each succeeding ten days.
"These markets will take care of
not only beef cattle but hogs also.
We expect the midwinter market to
be the most favorable one for the sale
of hogs. The committee gave a great
deal of thought to the selection of
the marketing centres and they adopt
ed as a basis of locating the markets
thme followving points: Transporation,
adaptability of section for raising live
stock and gr'owing forage crops; fu
ture prospects for development of live
stock in the district ; interest mani
fested in live stock in the community.
"These points were all considered
in selecting the markets. In consid
ering the qtuestion of establishing a
market, after duet consideration and
discussion, ithe committee determined
that the best interests of the State
wouldl he served by naming six mar
kets rather than flyc. W. N, Fore

after the meeting this afternoon, the
members of the C'oluimbia Chamber of
Commerce deeldedi that the best place
for the stork yards wvas out near
Rloyster, where there is a dipping vat,
and where the yards arc now located.
.\r. Gatewood and M\r. Foreacre are
locating the pens this afternoon.

JT. Drand, chief of the bureau. lie
says5: 'The whole movement is an in
novation in marketing of Southern jive
stock and I believe that it will have
a far reaching elfect upon tihe industry
in thme South generally.'"

PRISONEIt ATTETLvrS SUICIDE.
Negro, Conileted of 0'riu1minal Assault,
Attempts Suicide lather than Face
Florence, June 12.-Ben Bess, a
negro, convicted on the charge of
criminal assault, attempted suicide in
the county jail here last night by try
ing to hang himself. Bess made a
rope out of his blankets, and ticing
it securely around his neck he fas
tened the other end to the bars in the
top of the cell and thlrewv himself
from his bunk. The fall he got was
only about five feet but the blanket
rope broke and consequently he re
ceived only slight injuries and these
wvere sustained when he hit the iron
flour of the jail.
Bess gave as his reason that he pre
ferred death to going to the peniten
tiairy, he having received a sen
tence of 30 years for his crime.
