Texas Leads in Railroads.
A writer in the World's Work de?
clares thai "it is southwestward that
'i the star of empire takes its way, for
' Texas has this year passed Missouri iu
population, and there are now only
four states that contain more people
New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and
Ohio. Io area, Texas is nearly a
third larger than all four of them. At
the present rates of increase of popula?
tion, Texas will pass Ohio before, 1920,
Illinois beofre 1930 Pennsylvania by
1949 and *New York by 1950, and be?
come the most populous state in the
Union. If it were as densely settled
as New York now is, it would contain
41,000,000 souls and wbeu it becomes
densely populated as England or Ger?
many is, it will contain 95,000,000.
By the act of Congress admitting it in?
to the Union, the state may be divided
into as many as five states whenever
the people desire d ivision ; but divis?
ion has never been seriously proposed.
Since 1860 Illinois bas had more miles
of railroad than any other state till
this fall : but on September 1 Texas
exceeded it, haviirg now 11,517 miles
of main track. Texas produces about
one-third of our whole cotton crop.
More wheat is now shipped thence
than from both New York and New
Orleans, Galveston is nearer the trans
Mississippi wheat fields than any At?
lantic port and the Panama canal will
bring it very much nearer irban it now
is to the Pacific ports both of North
and Souht America. The growth of the
southwest is indicated by the steady
moving of the centre of population dur?
ing tlie last census decade fourteen
miles westward and th res miles south?
ward, and the center of cotton produc?
tion is moving from western Missis
sipppi across the river.'*

NEWS OF REV. KELLY.
. Augusta, Sept 26.- Chief M. J.
Norris has received a letter from
Rev. Geo. P. White, of Ridgeway, S.
C., notifying him that on the night
of the 16th he saw Rev. Wm. Aiken
Kelly, pastor of the North Augusta
Methodist church, on a Southern
train beyond Columbia.
This is the first direct news that
has been received from the missing
preacher. Mr. White, who is the pas?
tor of the Baptist church at Ridge?
way, knows Mr. Kelly personally. He
explains that Mr. Kelly was on the
same train with him that left Colum
' bia on the night of the day of his dis?
appearance. Mr. White left the train
at Ridgeway, 25^ miles out of Colum?
bia, ana left Mr."Kelly on board.
Mr. White recognized Mr. Kelly
3nd salutations at a distance were ex?
changed. Mr. Kelly was conversing
with another gentleman on the train,
only a few seats away from Mr.
White. Before Mr. White had an
opportunity to speak to Mr. Kelly his
house was readied and he left the i
train. Mr. White declares that Mr.
Kelly conducted himself as a perfectly .
rational man would. He judged by
the animated conversation he was car?
rying on with the party in the same j
seat that he was in the best of spirits, j
He did not dream that anything-was
wrong with Mr. Kelly and was sur?
prised oa reading the account of the ?
The letter from Mr. Waite lias been
turned over to Mr. Kelly's friends.
They look upon it a the first piece cf
authentic news as to the direction in
which Mr. Kelly was traveling. They
do not queesion the identification of
Mr. White, as he knows Mr. Kelly
personally. It is a corroboration of
the opinion toe}* have held all along,
namely, that Mr. Kelly did not re?
main in the vicinity of Augusta, but
that be left for some point suggested
by a disordered brain.
Mr. Kelly's friends are confident
that further news wilt follow the gen?
eral publication of the disappearance
in the press of the country. Efforts
are still being made to locate the mis?
The Sheriffs are Responsible.
Columbia, Sept. 26* -Governor
Hey ward has been asked to llave a
prompt trial of the negro prisoner
who was brought here for safekeeping
by the sheriff of Darlington County, j
He has advised ids correspondents
that he has nothing to do with the
setting of dates for trials or the StSO
sions of the Court, but that such mat?
ters will have to be taken up with
Solicitor Johnson, and tbat he is sat?
isfied that Mr. Jcnhsou will have the
case heard as soon as possible.
* It might also be stated in this con?
nection that Governor Heyward did
not order, direct or suggest that the
Darlington prisoner he brought to
Columbia for safe keeping. 'J he sug?
gestion was made to him by the
sheriff of Darlington that he bring
the prisoner here and Governor Hey?
ward told him that he would have to
use his best judgment in the matter.
He could not advise him not to bring
the prisoner, if* tiie sheriff, who was
upon the scene, thought that it was
best to bring the prisoner to Colum?
bia. If the prisoner had not been
brought and anything had happened,
the responsibility was upon the sher
iff, and Governor Heyward simply left
it in his hands to do what lie thought
best and safe to protect the prisoner.
Personally Governor H ey ward
thinks ir bad to bring prisoners to Co?
lumbia for safe keeping, if they can
possibly be protected at home, but cir?
cumstances alter cases, and he will
not assume to dictate what should or
should not be doue when the sheriffs
are responisble and have to exercise
their best judgment.

DUATH OF MR R. M. PIERSON.
Fell From Street Car and Died From Ef?
Mr. R. M. Pierson, a retired lum?
ber man, who was nntil - recently a
resident of Walterboro, was killed by
a fall from a trolley cai in Savannah
Saturday night. Mr. Pierson was
with his fiance. ' Miss Westendorff,
who formerly lived in Charleston.
The following account of the accident
was published in the Savannah News
of Sunday :
" While with the young lady whom
he was to make his bride next Wed?
nesday, Mr. R. M. Pierson, a
wealtny and retired saw mill mau of
Walterboro, S. C., fell from a Liberty
street trolley car on West Broad street
at the union station early last night
and sustained injuries from -which he
died several hours later at the Savan?
. "Miss Leah Anderson Westendorff,
daughter cf Mrs. James E. Westen
dorff, until recently of Charleston,
and Mr. Pierson were to have been
married Wednesday morning at the
home of the bride's mother, No. 4
Oglethorpe avenue, west. Miss West
endorff's trcussea? had been prepared
and all arrangements had been made
for the wedding,
"Early last night Miss Westendorff,
her mother and Mr. Pierson started
for the union station and bearded a
Liberty street car. The car was al?
most at a standstill when Mr. Pierson
stepped off for the purpose of assisting
Miss vVestendorff and her mother. In
some way he missed his footing and
fell backwards, striking on his head
on the vitrified brick pavement.
"He was unconscious when assist?
ance reached him and never spoke after
falling. The police ambulance was
summoned and Dr. W. W. Owens was
called. Mr. Pierson was taken to the
Savannah Hospital, where an exami?
nation was made. There was no evi?
dence of a fracture of the skull, al?
though he never regained conscious?
ness. He died about midnight.
"Miss Westendorff and her mother
went to the hospital and were almost
prostrated when Mr. Pierson's death
was made known to them. It bad
been hoped that his injuries were uot
of a serious nature, aud his death was
a great shock to his intended bride.
"Mr. Pierson, until about four
years ago, was engaged in the lumber
and saw mill business at Walterboro
and was successful. He retired and
had spent considerable of his time in
travelling. Several months ago he
met Miss W?stendorff'at her mother's
home in this city, and a friendship
which he had cherished for the family
in South Carolina, ripened into love
for the daughter he met here. All
arrangements had been made lor the
wedding and a bridal trip was to have
been made to St. Louis."
Funeral of Mr. Pierson.
The funeral of Mr. Robert Pierson,
who was killed in Savannah, Ga.,
Staurday, by a fall from a street car,
wa3 held at the cemetery at 9.45 this
morning. Mr, Pierson was a brother
of Mrs. S. E. Brand, of this city,
and of tho late Capt. B. G. Pierson.
Me was a resident of rhis county prior
to his removal to -Colleton county
twelve or fifteen years ago.

ALABAMA COMPANY MUSTERED OUT.
Court Recommends That the Com?

Montgomery, Ala., Sept. 26.-Gov. j
Cunningham today received the re- j
port of the military court of inquiry j
appointed to investigate the conduct J
of company F. Alabama National
Guard^ which was overpowered by the
mob at Huntsville, Ala., that lynched
Horace Maples, a negro.
The report, which is signed by Col.
T. S. Fraser, Capt. E. D. Smith and
Capt.W. F. Vaiden, recommends that
company F be mustered out for ineffi?

The court fuond that Cap. R. L. j
Hay had no definite plan of action,
and that most of the men had no load i
in their guns, though plenty of ammu- j
nition was to be had, also that one
sentinel was overpowered and badly j
hurt by the mob.
It was also found that members of j
the military company were cursed and
assaulted by the mob after the fire j
was set to the jail and that they lost j
their military identity in the crowd.
It was further found that the attack |
on the jail found the military sitting ?
around on the steps and curbstones
eating, also that on the night of the |
mob there was an entire lack of con?
certed effort or plans for the protec?
tion of the jail or prisoner.

of the military allowed a life to be taken
unlawfully by a mob under circum?
stances which justify us in concluding
that the same could have been pre?

THE WORK OF THE NIHILISTS.
Why the Russian Government is
Helpless Against the Campaign
St. Petersburg, Sept. 27.-While
some of the features of the plot which
cnlminated in the assassination of M.
Von Plehve, the minister of the inte?
rior, still baffle the police, the au?
thorities profess to be now perfectly
certain that the conspiracy was hatch?
ed in Geneva by half a dozen Rus?
sians, mostly Jews. The authorities
know the names and addresses of the
conspirators, but are unable Ito take
legal action against them, owing to
the failure of the laws of Swi'/erland
to interfere with political refugees,
and. therefore, Russian terrorists are
at liberty, from their haven in the
Alps, to continue the work of assassi?
nation of Russian ministers so long as
they are able to find emissaries will
iDg to risk their lives, the organizers
never venturing to carry out their
own designs. Six men who engineered
the Plehve plot, according to the re?
sult of the Russian police investiga?
tion, are declared beyond a shadow of
doubt, to have organized a series of
political crimes. For the first time
the fact is now revealed that M.
"Plehve's murder had been preceded by
four abortive artempts to encompass
his death, which the department of
political police frustrated in the nick
of time by the arrest of thc would-be
assassins, who were quietly imprison?
A False Alarm.
A false alarm of fire was gi ven Friday
morning a little after nine o'clock.
Both teams were out of their respec?
tive houses in a remarkably short
space of time : they turned down Main
street going south at full tilt, and
those who happened to be on the
street at that time witnessed a very
exciting side by side race. The horses
were brought to a standstill near the
railroad track and were driven back in
a slow trot. From such an exhibition,
Sumter's chances for capturing prizes
in the proposed tournament this fall
certainly appear good.

Advertising Doesn't Tolerate a
According to Judicious Advertising,
John Wanamaker says: "If there is
one enterprise on earth that a "quit?
ter' should leave severely alone, it is
advertising. To make a success of ad?
vertising one must be prepared to stick
to it like a barnacle on a boar's bot?
tom. He should know Defore he begins i\w
it that he must spend money-lots of
it. Somebody must tell him, als:),
that he caunont hope to reap results
commensurate with his expenditure
early in the game. Advertising
doesn't jerk: it pulis. It begins very
gently at first, but the pull is
steady. It increase day by day and
year by year until it exerts an irresis?
