STRIKE IN AUGUSTA NEARING END.
National Labor Organization Fail
to Keep Promises to Local
Augusta, May 1.-The board of di?
rectors and officers of four Augusta
mills, with the superintendents of each
mill, and a committee from the
strikers, held a conference today to
discuss the "grievances of the King
mill operatives, but nothing has been
done yet. The. conference has not
finished and will be taken up again
tomorrow.. The King mill officers say
they are ready and willing to ad jost any
grievances if the operatives prove they
really have grievances. j
An undercurrent has developed in j
circles of the strikers on account of
the promised 82 per week not being
distributed. Up to Monday of this
week the national organization owed
the strikers $8,400 and have on hand
only about 8500. For this reason com?
missaries were ^established yesterday

their hind legs and seemed to enjoy it.
Appelt charged and Tillman counter-;

her name would be handed down as

New York man, their courtship and

FRANK STATEMENT BY
GOL. R. W. SIMPSON.
; On Tuesday Night Clemson Was
j Tottering on the Brink-Trus
i tees Will Hear Grievances.
j Special to The State.
Anderson, May 2.-Col. R W.
j Simpson, president of the board of
j trastees of Clemson College, was in
the city yesterday and as the recent
disturbance at the college is still a
matter bf intense interest this corres?
pondent went to him in his office and
asked him if he could make any further
statement concerning .it.
"In the first place," said Col. Simp?
son, "I want to say that the statement
sent out by the Anderson corresondent
gave the facts very clearly and accu?
rately and I want to commend the
paper for its fairness and impartiality.
"There is very little difference be?
tween the faculty and the student body
as to what are the facts. The principal
difference is as to the punishment im?
posed upon Cadet Thonwell, the class
claiming that the action of the faculty
was partial and too severe. The by?
laws give to every student the right to
appeal to the board of "trustees from
the finding of the faculty in any case
.where the student is dissatisfied.
! Cadet Thorn well did not appeal as he
had a right to do nor did his class
complain to the trustees of the action
of the faculty, hence there was noth?
ing to justify me to call an extra meet?
ing of the trustees.
: "I am unable to answer your ques?
tions/ 1 he continued, "as to what
will be the probable action of the
trustees in regard to reinstating the
sophomore class. These young men
were not dismissed from the college.
They had a right to leave whenever
they saw proper. They exercised that
right and if they now wish to return*
they will naturally petition to that
end. Should they see proper to peti?
tion the trustees to receive them back I
have no doubt that the board will ex?
tend to" them every consideration that
the gravity of the situation and a due
regard to discipline will permit.
"Yes, I fully recognize the gravity
of the situation and it appeared to me
when I left the college Tuesday night
that Clemson College was tottering on
the brink of a terrible misfortunate
from which it would be impossible to
recover for many years. I was inform?
ed that the junior class would leave
on Wednesday or as soon as possible
and that the freshman class was to fol?
low soon after. Happily, however,
this action was avoided and I can safe?
ly say that there will be no further
trouble. These two classes are loyal
to Clemson and will not take rash or
hasty action calculated to bring re?
proach upon the college, but will sub?
mit their grievances to the board pf
trustees at i ts regular meeting in June
. "They readily responded to advice
and counsel when I appeared before
them in accordance with.their request
for me to meet with them.
: j "It would not be proper for me to
express an opinion as to the merits of
the controversy, but this much I can
say now that both the faculty and the
students realize the gravity of the
situation and may be depended upon
to act with prudence and deliberation
in the future. I will say further that
in my honest opinion the trouble now
exsiting originated from misapprehen?
sions which could have been avoided by
mutual explana tons.
"Clemson College is a new institu?
tion. As yet it has no past record to
appear to and both time and utmost
skill are required to build up a high
1 toned manly spirit and to manage so
large a number cf students. There
is no man who has more varied and
difficult duties to perform than Presi?
dent Hartzog. If he has failed to
give satisfaction, and this fact is made
tb appear, no persuasion could induce
him to hold for a day longer the im?
portant positon which he now
Col.r Simpson said that the trustees
.at their regular meeting in June would
take up the matter and would take
such actions as appeared to be best. The
sophomores would be heard if they de?
sired it, and he said he hoped they
would appear either as a body or by
committee and state their grievances
fully so the trustees would have
knowledge of all the facts. In conclu?
sion, Col Simpson repeated what he
has said on every occasion since the
trouble occurred that he had nothing
but sympathy and the kindliest feel?
ing toward the sophomores, but that
they had made a great mistake and,
he bad no doubt, they realized it. The
whole trouble could have been avoided
if they had been less hasty and had
asked for counsel and advice before
taking the rash step.
Don't Start Wrong.
Don't start the summer with a lin?erin?
cough or cold. We all know what a usum
mer cold" is. It's the hardest kind to cure.
Often it "hangs on" through the entire
season. Take it in hand right now. A few
doses of One Minute Cough Cure will set
you right. Sure cure for coughs, colds,
croup, grip, bronchitis, all throat and lung
troubles. Absolutely safe. Acts at once.
Children like it. "One Minute Cough Cure
is the best cough medicine I ever used,"

MR. CRAMP'S NOTION.
Mr. Charles H. Cramp, president
of the Cramp building company of
Philadelphia and a ground floor mem?
ber of the bogus trust organized
couple of years, ago to receive the
annual installments of the ship subsidy
that didn't pass, regrets the formation
of the $200,000,000 steamship - trust
mainly for the reason,; as he .feeling!,
states it, "that the vessels of the com?
bination must, in the main, fly the
flag of foreign nations, and that in
case of war between he United States
and the power whose flag they fly,
vessels owned so largely by American
citizens can be taken possession of by
the enemy and utilized against the
country of which their owners are
citizens. " This is really a grave mat
ter and,the only remedy which Mr.
Cramp can suggest for it is a subsidy
to the ship companies, which compose
the. trust sufficiently large to make it
possible for them to hire the Cramp
ship building company to equip them
with ships at its own price.
The trust with its colossal capital
can see its way clear to-large profits
without a subsidy though every man
connected with it has been knocking
at the door of the treasury for many
years begging like a mendicant for
the bounty.. It will have plenty of
money to renew its equipment and as
the Cramp ship building company
has been able to defeat every com?
petitor for the construction of war
and m?chant 'ships for foreign pur?
chasers it will no doubt be able to
get a fair share of the construction
work for the new trust, if it wants
it. But Mr. Cramp will prefer, prob?
ably, to occupy his establishment in
building ships for foreign customers
at a less price than to build for home
purchasers at any rice. At the begin?
ning of the Spanish war he held up
the government for months because
the authorities wouldn't pay him an
extortionate price for ships and he only
yielded when an' order was issued to
buy wherever vessels could be found
If Mr. 'Cramp had brains enough to
manage a blacksmith shop with one
fire he would know that the remedy
for the danger to which he refers is
not in paying unearned bounties to
ship building trusts. The repeal of
our antiquated navigation laws and
the substitution of a code which would
enable American ships, or ships own?
ed by American citizens and operated
by Americans to register and carry
the American flag, no ' matter where
it was built, would achieve the pur-'
pose. Every other commercial nation
in the world long ago enacted such
laws and'the flag of every such nation
is floating in every port of the world.
But in order to preserv? a monopoly
of the business in this country for
the Cramps and their favorites we
still maintaing a system which re?
quires a ship to be built in this
country in order to register and as
the Cramps charge more for build?
ing for Americans than for foreign?
ers the Amreicans have gone abroad
for their ships with the result to
which Mr. Cramp refers.-Beliefonte
