But the Professor's sleek silk beaver

thereupon remarked to him that if
he declined to remove the hat he
would be compelled to do it for him.
He suited the action to the word, he
lifted the hat and down to the deck
dropped a hatful of valuable jewelry,

A Talk With the President.
Washington, D. C., Sept. 27-Among
President Roosevelt's callers today
before the Cabinet assembled. were
Representative Griggs and Robert J.
Lowry, of Atlanta They are here on
private business and simply called to
pay their respects.
In the course of general conversa?
ron th? Evident took occasion to. as?
sure bis Georgia visitors that inf th?
consideration of Federal appointments
throughout the country, the south in
clude^. "he proposed to appoint the
best available men'to public office.
H? added that whenever a Democratic
ongressman hasN anything to say for
or against an aspirant for office, he will
be panted a hearing and his opinion
given-due weight.. . : ;
In this coEi?ect?on it is said, that
President Roosevelt is not in accord
.with those Republicans in Congress
who are .seeking.- to. reduce..CongressM
sionai representation in the Southern
States. Those wbo have discussed this.

Card From Mr. Stackhouse.
Mr.-Editor: On or'about' Aug. the
21st, ?; was in. your office and request?
ed that you publish a statement from
nie rn. r?f?rence to "W. H. Smith's
death- I was" away from home when
statement was published and did not
see it until last week.
The statement as published contra?
dicts my|evidence given before. Coro?
ner's juiy and in part" is incorrect.
What I did say was,' that there was
no foundation for the report that Mr.
Smith was! carrying my gun, on ac?
count of threats made against his life
by a negro or his threatening to take
his own life, etc. " I meant no reflec?
tion on . coroner's jury ; the verdict
was about the only one could have
been rendered from evidence before
them at the time. The verdict as I
understand it, leaves it unsettled as to
how Mr. " Smith came to his death yet
it was' published as a verdict of sui?
cide, which I am satisfied grew out of
misinformation given the newspapers.
We will never know positively how
Mr. Smith came to his death, but
from careful^examination and evidence
obtained since verdict of jury was ren?
dered I am thoroughly convinced that
it was an accident. ? make this state?
ment to correct any wrong "impression
that might have been made on any
member of coroner's jury, also in
deference to the feelings of Mr.
Smith's family and friends.

Veterans' Home Burned.
--* Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 30.-The Con?
federate Soldiers' Home just east of
this city was destroyed by fire today.
There were no lives lost,* but several
narrow escapes. About 70 veterans
were inmates of the building, some of
them being invalids who were rescued
with difficulty. The loss is estimated
at 825,000, covered by 810,000 insur?
ance. The home was opened for the
ex-Confedera te veterans of the State
June 30, and was built by popular
subscription.
Charlotte, Sept. 30.-Miss Laura
Lemly, 45 years of age, a sister of
Judge Advocate Lemly, was burned to
death at her home in Salem, N. C.,
today. Her clothing caught from a
kitchen stove and she was [so badly
burned that death resulted in four

ROOSEVELT GROWS RESTIVE.
The New President Dislikes to
be Thought an Accident.
Washington, September 29.-Presi?
dent Roosevelt resents in unmistakable
? terms the insinuations thrown \ ont by
designing politicians that he is to be
as a piece of putty in the hands pf the
Republican bosses, because he succeed?
ed to the Presidency under such ever
to be regretted circumstances. In dis?
cussing public affairs with his personal
friends President Roosevelt shows con?
siderable feeling when the subject - of
his succession and his future policy
is under consideration. While he has a
most profound regard and admiration
for the ability and the excellent judg?
ment of his late predecessor and; at
the same time, is heartily in . accord
with the general j)oiicies of the Re?
publican party, he seriously and stren
ously objects to being considered in
the light of a political accident or a
national experiment. Mr. Roosevelt
contends that the Constitution of Vfche
United Stat?s provides for the office
of Vice President to meet just such a
mournful and distressing contingency
as arose when President McKinley was
stricken down by the hand of an
assassin. The voters of the United
States were. well aware bf this fact
when they went to the polls last No?
vember, and by . their ballots declared
that if any emergency should arise
which would deprive the country of the
inestimable services of William Mc?
Kinley, they would have Theodore
Roosevelt tb step in and take his place.
It is. exasperating to a man of his am?
bitious nature and impulsive charac?
teristics to have it even suggested that
if he permits himself to be bound and
gaggea by the party boses, he may
manage to squeeze through his admin?
istration in an acceptable manner and
merit a renomination four years hence.
Every day it becomes more and more
apparent that before a great while
President Roosevelt will throw oS
some of the restraint under which ^ he
is now laboring and give the political
leaders a piece of his mind, so that
they will fully understand that so long
as he occupies the Executive Mansion
the people of 'the United States will
have a thoroughly Roosevelt adminis?
tration, v. . ', ; ;T.....
A ROLLER MILL FOR SUMTER.
Do the Business Men Want lt
Established ?
The business men of this city are
face to face with the opportunity to
secure the establishment in Sumter of
a 50 barrel roller flour mill. All that
is needed is a disposition to help along
an enterprise that will be of great and
unquestioned'benefit to the city and to
the entire county. If one hali of the
business, men of the city will take a
share or two, each, in the proposed roll?
er mill ccompany it will be built in
time to handle -the.^ next ^crop of
wheat, and furthermore it will be run
by a man who has had 20 years success?
ful experience in the mill business
and is now.running a succesful roller
mill in this State. He wants to come
to Sumter and will come if the people
of Sumter give him the proper encour?
agement. A short time ago the edtior
of the Item received a^letter from this
gentleman in reference to the outlook
for the establishment of a roller mill
in this city. The matter was mention?
ed in this paper at the time and he
was written to promptly, giving all the
information possible and referring him
to several gentlemen in this city who
expressed interest in the proposition.
Mr. J. J. Harby has been in corres?
pondence with him for several weeks,
and, after being fully satisfied as to his
responsibility and also that he knows
the mill business thoroughly, he went
to see him and made a careful and full
investigation of f the business of the
mill with which he is now connected,
was convinced that a roller mill in
Sumter would be a paying enterprise.
Mr. Harby has undertaken to form a
company to establish the mili and by
the advice of the gentlemen who will
manage it, if it is established, is seek?
ing to interest as large a number as
possible of the merchants in it to the
end that they will patronize the mill
when they need flour and other mill
products. No one will ba asked to take
a large block of stock, but it is hoped
that every business man in town will
take at least one share. .
Mr. Harby started out last Wednesday
with a subscription list and the en?
couragement he met with was not as
hearty as the enterprise he is seeking
to bring to Sumter merits, and, to say
the least, the excuses given by some of
those he approached were decidedly
thin and lacking in public spirit.
It is up to theN business men of
Sumter to say whether Sumter shall
have a roller mill or not. If they want
it they can get it, and, at the same
time bring to Sumter a man who"
knows how to run it as a profit paying
enterprise and will do so because he
will be the one most directly interest?
ed, by investing a hundred or two dol?
lars each in the stock of the mill com?
pany. Do they want it? Do they want
another money making establishment
in the city? Do they want to encour?
age wheat growing in Sumter county?
If so, they will take a share of stock
when Mr. Harby calls with the sub?
scription list.
The Discoverer of America.
Paris, Sept. 29.-An important work
which throws fresh light on the dis?
covery of America by Columbus has
been written by Henry Vignaud, first
secretary of the United States embassy
here. It is in French and will be
published in this city October 1. Mr.
Vignaud, who is president of the
Americanist's society of Paris, has
made a life study bf the early history
of America.
In an interview with the correspon?
dent of the Associated Press, Mr. Vig?
naud said:
"The present work is intended to
show that for the last four centuries
we have been deceived by a fraud
which hides from us the real begin?
ning of Columbus' project and that
the famous documents ascribed to Tos
canelli, the learned Florentine astron?
omer, were fabricated. I submit ex?
cellent reasons for believing that Tos
canelli never wrote the letter of 1474
to King Alfonso of Portugal and never
traced the chart alleged to have accom?
panied it. Columbus' design was not
founded on any scientific basis but on
positive information as to the exist?
ence of lands to the westward.

A Card From Mr. Lever.
To the Editor: Please allow me
space in your valuable paper to extend
I to the people of your county my sin?
cere and heartfelt thanks, for their
kind and liberal support in the recent
! primary election. I hardly think it
possible for anyone to have any keener
j sense of appreciation, and at the same
time feel more keenly the responsibil?
ity resting upon-me as the spokesman
of the district. The responsibility is
magnified, and the honor greater, be?
cause we are to attempt to fill the place
mad6 vacant by as able, as earnest
and as conscientious representative of
th? whole people as this district has
ever had. My purpose shall be to rep?
resent the entire district, and I do
not want any one to hesitate in mak?
ing known any wish to me, and i
promise, as far as possible in; con?
sistency, to do my best to gratify the
wish. . The best that we can do is all
that we can, and it is all that we
promise to do.
I trust that we will conduct our?
selves in such a manner that no one
will feel that he acted, unwisely in
helping to make me his representative.
Very respectfully,
AF. Lever.

The story recently telegraphed from
Lake City to the effect that oil had
been discovered in that town turns
out to be a monstrous fake. There was
a well-laid plan, however, to fool the
property owners. It seems that while
the well borers had gone to dinner some
of the smart young people of the town
poured gallons of oil in the well and
dropped in small particles of coal. The j
"salting" process hoodwinked the
populace, and the news spread like
wildfire that oil had been found. It
is said that offers were made for the
purchase of property near the well.

SCHLEY COURT OF INQUIRY.
The Witnesses Monday Not Fa?
vorable to Schley.
Washington, Sept. 30.-Rear Admirai
Evans, who as captain, commanded
the battleship Iowa during the Santi?
ago campaign, was a witness before the
Schley naval court of inquiry today.
His testimony covered the entire pe?
riod from the time the Iowa, left the
port of Key West oh the 20th' of May,
1898,. until the 5th of July, ' when Ad?
miral Evans testified he had ai cbhver:
safio? with Admiral Schley concern?
ing the battle of the 3d. He described
in detail the principal battle off San?
tiago, and also gave particulars con?
cerning the bombardment of the Colon
on the 31st of May.. .
Other witnesses of the day were
: Capt. Theodore F... Jewell, who was
commander of the cruiser Minneapolis
during' the * Spanish war, and 2 Com
mander James M. . Miller, who was
in wmmand of the Collier Merrimac
until the vessel' was turned over to
lieut. Hobson to be sunk" in the mouth
of the harbor . at. Santiago. Admiral
Evans had not concluded Ms testimony
when, the'court adjourned for the day.
Commander Miller read from the
collier's log to show that the Iowa, the
Massachusetts and the Castine had
been coaled on the 23d and 24th.
The sea on the 25th, he said, was
nasty. On the 26th the collier was
making from 6 to ll knots and the sea
was smoother. Vessels could have
coaled that day. He had objected to
having two battleships coal at once,
as they had a peculiar rolling motion
and might have crushed the collier be?
tween thein. ' In response to the court,
Commander Miller said he could have ?
coaled'any of the ships on the 25th, J
though not comfortabfy.
Capt. Theodore F. Jewell said that
he had first fallen in with the flying
squadron on the evening of May 26th.
Capt. Lemly quoted from Admiral
Schley's letter to the senate committee
on naval affairs, dat?d Feb. 18, 1899,
saying, "after having been informed
by/ the scouts commanded by such offi?
cers as^Sigsbee, Jewell and Wise, that
although they had been off Santiago
for a week they had seen nothing of
Cervera's fleet since it left Curacoa,"
and asked whether he had given to
Admiral Schley this information . or
any other information of the Spanish
fleet. ?
The witness. replied il''I gave . him
no information with reference to that
subject whatever.", "j
The judge advocate asked: '.'At the
time you were within signalling dis?
tance, of the. flagship. of the flying
squadron off Santiago were you at any
time asked any . question by Commo-/
dore Schley as to the presence of the:
Spanish squadron in Santiago?"
"Not to my recollection-."
The witness said in reply to a- ques?
tion from Mr. Raynor that ne had no
knowledge that Capt. Sigsbee, speak?
ing for himself and for Cap ts. Jewell
and "Wise, stated to Commodore Schley
