I)ETAILS OF IIONEA PATH TRAGEDY.
The following is from The State:
Honea Path, Feb. 17.-A severe
storm, cycionic in its character, swept
this town yesterday afternoon at
The damages as near as can be
ascertained are as follows:
The large two-story double brick
store of Mr. W. A Shirley was en
tirely destroyed and his stock of fur
nishing goods badly damaged.
Six young men on their way from
school dsahed into this store to es
cape the wind and rain. They had
just reached one of the large double
front doors when they saw the front
wall was falling towards the street
They made an effort to esrape from
danger but four of them were buried
beneath the wreck while two others
rushed into the front door and took
refuge in the inside cf the store.
Earle McGee, son of Mr. W. J.
McGee, and Bertie Austin, son of
Mrs. Thomas Austin of Greenville
county, were killed instantly and
Edgar Donald, son of Mr. J. R
Donald,' was seriously injured, both
legs and arms being broktn and his
spine injured. A. C. Stone, son of
Mr. J. T. Stone, had one leg broken
and sustained other injuries about
the head and body.
Immediately after the destruction
of the building Mr. P. W. Sullivan
who was standing at one of the win
dows in the bank building only a
short distance away, saw the hand of
some one shaking. He promptly
called for assistance and went to
work to rescue the victims. In a
few minutes the bodies of the unfor
tunate young men were extracted
and carried to nearby buildings.
Medical assistance was summoned
and every thing possible was done for
the sufferers. The force of the storm
was terrific and the building of Mr.
Shirley was torn to atoms in almost
a second. Large frames from the
roof were blown hundreds of yards
and brick were scattered in every
In addition to the above named
building, several stores were unroofed,
chimneys blown (down and trees up
rooted. In a piece of woodland a
short distance from here more than a
hundred trees wvere felled.

were carriedl many yards b)y the force
of the winds.
Telephone and telegraph wires are

E. B. Culberson, mail carrier on
one of the free delivery routes, had
a narrow escape from death. He had
taken refuge in a covered bridge a
few miles from here. He realized
that the bridge would not stand the
force of the storm and made an ef
fort to get his team out, but before
he could do so the structure gave
way. His horse was killed and his
buggy demolished. He saved him
self by jumping into the open just as
the bridge went down.
ASRISTANCE FROM BELTON.
The citizens of Belton, a nearby
town, rendered valuable assistance,
several coming down on the first
train. Among them were two of the
leading physicians, who very quickly
offered their services to the fam
ilies of the injured.
The work of removing t. . e debris
from the streets was at once under

A Journalistic Feat.
Newspapers are still talking of th(
journalistic achievements of the latt
Mr. Do Blowitz for 35 *years special
correspondent of the London Times.
His greatest feat was undoubtedly in
securing for his paper the complete
text of the Boer treaty in 1878 be
fore it had left the conference room,
or in fact had received the signature
of the diplomats. Some ten years or
more ago Mr. Do Blowitz wrote the
story of the Berlin treaty "scoop"
for the Century Magazine. It was
a fasinating narrative, and is worth
tecalling at lhis time.
Mr. De Blowitz had been commis
sioned by The Times to report the
conference. He knew the diliculties
he would have to encounter owing to
the secrecy of the sessions and to
Bismarck's well known antipathy to
nowspiaper men. As a preliminary
arrangement for the bat lie royal he
proposed to wage with the wise men,
Mr. Do Blowitz soeured as his aide
a young, well connected Parisiam,
disinherited and looking for a job.
The young man was told to apply
for a secretaryship to a diplomat who
it was understood would be an am
bassador to tlhe conference at Berlin.
He was instructed by Mr. Do Blowitz
that while he was to indulge in n1o
gross betrayal of confidences, never
theless he would be expected at the
close of eatch day to give a faithful
report of the progress of the confer
Tt - plan, in the language of Mr.
vitz, succeeded a merveille.

.1, anrd presumably served bot h
hi, 'asters well. He was not skill
ed in the art of newsgathering, how
ever, and Mr. Do Blowitz often had
to exercise his ingenuity in patching
to gether the merest scraps of infor
mation. For example, one evening
the young fellow reported that a
certain ambassador had made a speech
which seemed to have created an
awful row-lie didn't know wvhat the
speech was or anything about it.
Mr. D. Blowitz put on his good
clothes and went to call on an inti
mate friend of the man who had
made the speech. Without directly
asking for information, he0 inidenl~t
ally observed that the amb)assador's
speech wvas being severely criticised,
etc., etc. The diplomat camne to the
defense of his friend, and before lhe
wvas through had practically told the
context of the speech.
The publication of the treaty, how.
ever, wans Mr. Do Blowitz' master
stroke. He learned that the treaty
had boon given a certain ambassador
for revision. He wont to the ambas
sador and requested a copy, nne -j
course was refused. Mr. D)eBlowitz
persisted to thle point that the amnbas
sador finally consented1 to read the
treaty aloud. It was long aund1 com
plicated, anid lhe (lid lot count on Mr.

EXTRA SESSION OF
A CRITICAL SITUATION NEAR THE CLOSI
OF THE SESSION.
The Blockade Caused by the Statehood
Bill-How the Trusts Rule Congress.
(News and Courier.)
Washington, Feb. 19.-Special:
Because of the Statehood blockade
the Republican leaders are now pre
paring for an extra session of the
Senate and a proclamation by the
President for such a session, is ex
pected immediately at the close of
the present session, unless the unex.
pected happens and the Cuban and
Panama Canal treaties are ratilied.
However, an extra session of the
Senate alone will create little interest
outside of its action in ratifying the
treaties, for no other legislation ib
probable. The Senate, it is true,
might go on and pass bills, which
the House could take up next De
cember, when it meets again, but
none of the measures considered ly
the Senate could bocome law for the
present. But the disposition will be
to consider the treaties solely and the
meetings will he very largely execu
These executive sessions of the
Senate always attract much interest
locally, because of the many peculiar
practices connected with them. In

north end of the Capitol ring four
times, following it mtotion of some
Senator for an exeeitive session, the
Senate ceases to be part of the legis

becomes a part, of the executive
branch. Spect aors are hustled out

The Senate preserves with great
punctiliousness its forms of secrecy
as to the executive session, hut" ac
coutts of what transpired appear
with accuracy in the morning papers
of the next day. The accounts have
to come from the Senators them
selves, but it is rare indeed that the
correspondents, who have fri ends
among the Senators, do not get the
substance of everything of public in

In days gone by Bill Smith was apt

Republicans Uncertain Though Roosevelt

Washington, Feb. 20.-Party man
agers are giving thought nowadays

The nominating conventions are only
a little more thani a year distant, and
long before that time sentiment will
have shaped itself somewhat definite
ly as so the identity of candidates
and the outline of the platforms.

that he intended to stay out of next

malous. Thore are prominout party

wager that the name of President
Roosevelt, will not. even be presented
to the next Republican national con
vention. There are others declaring
a willingness to wager that. no other
name will be presented to the con
vention. In the private conversa.
tions of men who fool the public
pulse there is almost a universal ad
mission that Mr. Roosevelt is
strong with the people, and that if
he wins the nomination triumphant
ly, or even after a struggle, it will be
by reason of his general popularity.
The grumbling comes in large
part from the politician class, iriclud.
ing, of course, i large cont ingeut

among Republican Uongresamen.

the party split in 1896, but there has
been enthusiasm such as generally
characterizes the reunion of old time

the Democrats have supported ad

in a moat favorable attitude for mak
