MYSTERIOUS DEATH IN COLOMBIA.
Phliilp Maultry, Suicides, lt ls
Colombia. Nov. 16.-Phillip
Maultry, a German barber and flor?
ist, formerly of S partan burg and
afterwards of Atlanta, but for the past
four years proprietor of the Wrights
Hotel barber shop and pool room here
committed suicide last night in pecu?
liar circumstances. His body was
found early this morning by his family
lying stiff on bis left side in b<5d with
a quarter inch cord twisted about
his neck by means of a six inch stick,
the end of which was stock under his
undershirt down his back in such a
way as to strangle him. His head
was in his hand? between his knees,
bis face was purple, and though his
body was partially stiff it was still a
bit warm. He was 55 years old and a
man of family, but occupied a sepa?
rate room from his wife, on account
of suffering from asthma. His wife
last saw bim last Dight at 10 o'clock,
when he asked to be left to himself
earlier than usual. The blanket was
tucked in over his shoulders and there
was no evidence of violence nor yet
of a struggle. The family gave out
that death resulted from natural cans?
es and the physician signed a certif??
cate to the effect that death resulted
from asphyxiation, although the law
forbids misstatement of cause by
severe penalty. He opined to the
coroner this morning, however, that
it was a clear case of suicide, and
said that be had given asphyxiation
as the cause merely to shade the
family's feelings. The coroner said
he would hold no inquest.
Maultry had been more despondent
than usual recently, on account of bis
asthma, and the fact that writers
cramp, with wbch he had been suffering
for some time, was growing worse.
Several of bisfbarbers left him recent?
ly. And yet, so far as can be dis?
covered he had never threatened to
take his own life, and though he
had lest much money in his florist
business his finances, bis brother in
law, who run his pool room, said this
morning, were in particularly good

Columbia, Nov.- 16.-Application
will be made in a few days for a char?
ter for the South Carolina Industrial
school association, whose object is to
establish a reformatory in this State.
The idea was projected at a meeting
of women held for the purpose at
Greenville. Efforts wil be made to
organize county associations through?
out the State, and this work of or?
ganization will go forward at once.
The mission of the county associations
will be to urge the importance and ex
plot the advantage of such an institu?
tion and the matter will be taken up
with the next legislature. The Green?

of companies against whom prosecu?

the fact as they pleaded that most of
the violations had been mere technical
violations that these cases be not pro

which are about to be made against
other companies. The board however,,
agreed to continue ali cases until a
special committee appointed yesterday
to ask the next legislature to more

Columbia, Nov. 18.-The first batch
of foreigners to be brought to this sec?
tion to work in the cotton mills have
arrived at Greenville, thirteen Poles
and Germans with their families. The
immigrants were brought in by the
land and industrial department of the
Southern railway. Commissioner of
Immigration Watson is trying to lo?
cate all of his imports on the farms
of the State. He located two Scotch?
men on Anderson farms this week. It
is a significant fact that on the day
the 13 German families arrived in
Greenville, 48 farmers came in from
Cherokee to work in the Greenville
mills. A fight has been on the new
department of immigration in several
parts of the State on the ground that
foreigners would be brouheght re to
bake the places of native help in the
mills, but this sentiment appears to
have died ont after interviews were
published from some of the leading
cotton mill presidents to the effect that
it was not their intention or desire to
import labor, that the home product
ivas good enough and plentiful enough
to suit them.
Reliable information comes from

in his possession, although Maj. L. S.
Anderson presented the sheriff's offi?
cial receipt for the prisoner on which
the governor acted in awarding An?
derson the S100 offered for Henderson's
capture. The information that now
comes from Saluda is to the effect
that Henderson was too badly wound?
ed at the time of the fight to attempt
to escape and has all along been under
the surveillance of Sheriff Rhoden.
He was carried to a relative's in
Greenwood county and afterwards
Maj. Anderson started out with him
For Saluda, but he became so ill on
the way that he was turned over to

where he has been guarded by Sheriff
Rhoden. The Saluda Standard also
bears out this general statement, and

negro Will Culbreatb, who is wanted
in the same case, was captured several

sheriff says that he signed the receipt |

it the paper when he signed it but re?
lied on Mr. Evans' statement when

that it was a paper in an application

The correspondent of the Associated

solicitors who have been preparing the [

the presence cf torpedo boats among

The evidence of the witnesses was in
substance that the trawlers took the
Russians ?or British warships at man?
oeuvres. When the firing began the
trawlers ran. The skipper of the
trawler Keith in reply to questions
declared that there were no Japanese
present and that no Japanese agents
made any suggestion to him whatever.
It would have been impossible for the

A surgeon of the North sea hospital
ship Alpha made the rather important
statement that all the Alpha's lights

Both Admiral Bridge and Mr.
Aspinall, who are conducting the in?
quiry on the most impartial lines, in?
dicated by questions that the trawler
which separated from the fishing fleet
might possibly have been taken for a
torpedo boat by the Russians.
A suggestion by the Russian consol
that the shelling was due to the traw?
lers failing to stop when blank shots
were fired and the fact that the lights
were "::tingoished on at least one
rrawler is considered here to in some
degree .explain though not to excuse
the attack by the Russians.
Dr. Woodhouse holds a merely
watching brief. Neither he nor the
Russian consul here are in possession
of any evidence tending to prove that
Japanese topedo boats were in the
neighborhood of Dogger bank or that
Japanese exercised any influence upon
the fishing fleet.

Easy to take and easy to act is
that famous little pill Dewitt's
Little Early Risers. This is due to
the fact that they tonic the liver in
stead of purging it. They never gripe
nor sicken, not even the most delicate
lady, and yet they are so certain in
results that no one who uses them is
disappointed. They cure torpid liver,
constipation, biliousness, jaundice,
headache, malaria and ward off pneu?
monia and fevers.
