Camden, Feb. 28.?W. R. Eve. Jr.,
secretary of the chamber of com?

Bernard M. Baruch of New York, say?
ing that he would give $20,000 to?
wards the Camden hospital. Mr.
Baruch was born in Camden. When
about nine years of age. he went to
New York, where his father. Dr.
Simon Baruch, decided to live and
practice his profession. Bernard
Baruch is said to be worth over $26,
000,000. He 1? a well known attorney
in New York City.
The people of Camden are very
much elated over the generous gift,
and they are talking about it,
wherever there is a gathering of two
or more people. The gift makes the
hospital a certainty. Capt. James Bur
dell, in his will, left about $75,000
worth of property to be used as an
endowment fund for the hospital.
Mrs. A. C Ancrum recently received
a letter from Dr. Simon Baruch, stat?

about $2,000, to the Ladies' auxiliary
The Ladies' auxiliary has raised
considerable money by entertain?

Hacking; Taft to a Man.
Charleston. Feb. 2o.?The heads of
federal departments In Charleston
are all for Taft for president, so de
daring themselves today in state?
ments made to The Chronicle repre?
sentative. The positive stand of the
officeholders leaves no question where
they stand and their position will
doubtless he the position of the Re?
publican organization of the State.

DM said: "I am for Taft first,
last and all the time. Don't believe
that Roosevelt can get the nomina?
Postmaster W. U Harris said: "It
is unfortunate that Mr. Roosevelt has
come out for the office. I am for Mr.
Taft for president."
Collector of the Port E. W. Durant
stated: "Taft is the best man in the
world for the office Of course I am
Both Marshall Adams and Post?
master Harris got their first appoint?
ments to their offices by Ex-President
Roosevelt and were again reappointed
by President Taft. Mr. Durant was
appointed collector of customs by Mr.
Taft, both men having been grad?
uates of Yale college and were per?
sonally acquainted before Mr. Durant
aspired for federal office.
The regular Republican organiza?
tion has been pulling strong foi Taft
for some time and the lining up of
the Charleston federal office holders
for Taft should excite no surprise.
The organization Is close to Hitch?
cock and the Charleston Republicans
have been claiming that Hitchcock Is
loyal to Taft and their friendliness
with the postmaster general means
no disloyalty to the President.
The feeling generally In Charleston
Is of course for Taft. There is no
man In the Republican party Whose
nomination would give any thing like
the satisfaction and pleasure among
the people generally that Taft's nomi?
nation would give and the feeling
seems to be that Taft will be
named by his party to make the race.

PROGRESS OF REVOLUTION.
MADKRO FORCES ABANDON
BIEGE OF JTJRAEZ,
Rebels Ijol't in Control while Federal
BffortI Directed Klwewhere.
Mexico City, Feb. 28.?No immedi?
ate steps will be taken to dislodge the
rebels from Juarez, either by siege or
battle. Instead the Government will
devote its energies to cleaning up the
district about Torreon and Chihuahua. 1
This, according to the best informa?
tion obtainable, was the conclusion
reached at the meeting of President
Madero's Cabinet today, after the dif?
ficulties of starving out the Juarez
insurrectos had been thoroughly can?
vassed. A Government official point?
ed out that it would require a larger
number of troops than the Govern?
ment could spare to prevent the reb?
els securing cattle and provisions
from the surrounding country with
which to maintain themselves.
On the other hand, the Govern?
ment has decided that military op?
erations are to be pushed vigorously
in the Laguna district. Troops are
being sent into that territory from
Satillo and Monterey and results are
expected within a few days.
In response to representations made
to American Ambassador Wilson, a
body of troops is proceeding to the re?
lief of fifty-three Americans who are
hottlea up at Velardena. A report
was circulated here today that three
of the Americans had been killed by
the rebels, but careful inquiry failed

ANOTHER FORM OF SLAVERY.
SENATOR TILLMAN'K VIEWS ON
LAWRENCE MILL STRIKE.
In Opinion of South Carolina Sena?
tor, MussachasctLs, "The Cradle of
liberty," Has Substituted Indus?
trial for Chattel Slavery?Blames
Immigration Laws for Admitting
Ignorant Foreign Laborers, Who
Become Republican Voters and
Support Protective Tann.
Washington, Feb. 28.?Senator B. 1
R. Tillman. of South Carolina, made j
the following statement today, when
asked for an opinion on the develop?
ments at Lawrence, Mass: "The la?
bor agitators at Lawrence have used
the strike and things that have grown
out of it for the purpose of agitation.
Shipping the children to New York
and Philadelphia could only'have had
one of two objects, to lessen the nuir
her of mouths to he fed at Lawre* <f
or to excite the sympathy of f
workers in the two cities named.
"The interference by the police with
the last shipment of children was un?
fortunate in more ways than one. It
was wholly unwarranted Jby any law
I know of and an invasion of rights
that are guaranteed by the Constitu?
tion. Had they stopped the first batch
of children from going to New York
city, it would have been a blessing,
for they arrived late in the evening,
during a blizzard, when the ther?
mometer was around zero, and they
must have suffered greatly.
"I think tt unfortunate that both
houses of Congress have been asked
(to interference, because it appears to
be purely a State matter. However, I
recall that Massachusetts has claim?
ed to he 'the cradle of liberty' and
was leader of the crusade which re?
sulted in the great civil war. The con?
ditions at l^awrence seems to indl-.
cate that she has substituted indus?
trial slavery for chattel slavery and
a horde of foreigners in the city,
thousands of whom who cannot speak
the English language, have been im?
ported to furnish labor. They are
a sad commentary on our lax ImmJ-.'
"If the occurrences at Lawrence
last week shall cause Congress to en?
force restrictions such as will keep
out these ignorant and debased peo?
ple, the American people will look up?
on the strike at I.#awrence as a bless?
ing, and it will mark a new epoch of
the war between labor and capital.
The howling of the protective tariff
advocates for more protection to
American labor have brought a con?
dition as striking and as epoch-mak?
ing as the Dred Scot decision. Things
. in this country have come to a pretty
I pas3 when the authorities of a State
go so far as to prohibit people from
?ending their own children away.
"That is slavery pure and simple.
But when we recollect that such peo?
ple as these haw been naturalized
and turned into Republican voters for
B protective tariff, it would sx>m that
the greed of the manufact; "er had
overreached itself. It is time for
sane and sensible people to find just
what is the trouble and apply the
remedy. Congress c in stop promis?
cuous and unlimited immigration and
should do so, but Congress cannot le?
gally interfere with a State's police
powers. We are between the devil
? of capitalistic greed on one hand and
the SOS of Socialism. with the red
tlag of the Jacobins, on the other. We
are bound to have some blood-let?
ting before the disease il CUrcd.

TAFT MAY VISIT WINTHROP.
PROBABLE TIL\T PRESIDENT
WILL STOP AT COLLEGE.
It is Therefore Considered Not Un?
likely That He Will be at Rock
Hill for Time.
Washington, Feb. 27.?It is learned
here today that President Taft will
probably visit Winthrop college at
Hock Hill when he starts for Savan?
nah. April 30, to attend the centen?
nial of the Hibernian society of that
city. When It' Taft, about two weeks

However, as he promised the Sa?
vannah people that he wou'.d certain?

weeks ago, he feels bound now to do
so. The trip to Savannah is via the
Southern railroad, instead of by tho
Coast Line, so that the president's
stop by Rock Hill would re?
quire perhaps not more than a few
hours more time, and it is said hero
today that as soon as the details of
the Sa v'annah trip are worked out

VIEWS OF A COTTON BROKER.
Janice O. Williams of the Firm off
Daniel O'Dell and Company and A
Member of tho New? York Cotton
Exchange, Sayf? Cotton Prices Have
Advanced Because of the Possibil?
ity of a Material Reduction in
j Rock Hill, Feb. 26.?Mr. J. G. An*
deraon of this place, who has had
1 charge of putting the "Rock Hill
'Plan" for the reaction of cotton
acreage, into effect has just received
the following letter from James O.
Williams, a member of the cotton
brokerage firm of Daniel O'Dell and
Company of 71 Broadway, New York,
( and who is also a member of the XeW
? York Cotton Exchange. Mr. Williams'
( letter reads:
"I am very much pleased to learn
that your efforts have been so success?
ful in bringing about a promised ma?
terial reduction in the cotton acr.^ago

cess and believe it is the very salva*
j tion of the cotter, planter.
"I consider that many spinners arO
laying in supplies for future needs in
view of the possibilities of a material
reduction in acreage this year.
"When I was South last October a
big spinner told me that if cotton
went to 8 1-2 cents he expected to
buy sufficient to run him for two
years as he considered it a snf<? in
( vestment at a price which he con?
sidered below the cost of production.
His views undoubtedly represented
I the views of numerous spinners all
I over the country and when the price
I reached a point at which they consid^
j ered that the actual votton could not
be produced, they began buying on a
j heavy scale. This heavy buying in
j my opinion turned the market and
j the case with which it has since ad
j vanced has not only made tnem
. surer of their position, but has en?
couraged others to follow their SSE"

I we hav 4 a much more optimistic
