and an equally strung body of federals

a d< Ided advantage to the govern?

The lighting began at day break and

The rebels abandoned 10 cannons
and much ammunition In their re?

guard 'it noon, was sent around to

the second day of fighting will prove ,
equally decisive. I
This town only yesterday occupied
by the vanguard of the rebels was

riddled with bullets when the federals |
galloped into it at sunset. Over the

could be seen retreating.
Should the advantage gained today i
be followed by equal success tomor

it will mean the annihilation of the

however, that the rebels Will make
their last stand at K seal on, their cen?
tral base. 14 miles to the north, where
they have built fortifications and
trenches In the last fortnight.
It was the steady artillery lire of
the government troops that dislodged
the enemy. The aim of the federal
gunners was true. They began to
shell the rebel positions at daybreak.
For a time the insurrectos fired in
volleys and seve n federal officers were

they withstood the cnnonadlng and

rebels continue to fight desperately

Gen. Huerta talked enthusiastically
of the fight.

he said, "my troops took the posi?

Greenville, May 11.?The first clash

State officials, over the recent decis?
ion of Federal Judge H. A. M. Smith,
that the Government has a right to
sell at public auction in a "dry"
county whiskey that has been seized
and condemned as contraband, oc?
curred here today.
In compliance with the order of
Judge Smith, at the April term of the
Federal Court held In Greenville,
Fnited States Marshall J. Duncan
Adams advertised for sale at public
auction, at Greenville County Court
House May 11, at 12 o'clock, two
packages containing intoxicating liq?
uors, the packages being marked "G.
v. Btoeber" and "J. B, Thackston,"
care Of the ' Hundred Thousand club."
Sev eral days ago Governor Blease ad?
dressed letters to the sheriffs of South
Carolina and to one of the magistrates
in Greenville, advising them to arrest
any party who might purchase contra?
band whiskey sold in the State by
United states officials.
Sheriff J. Perry Pools, <>f Green?
ville, and Magistrate Samuel Stradley |
received copies of the letter and forth?
with primed themselves for the
clash. This morning a deputy of
Marshall J. Duncan Adams apcar
ed In Greenville ami prepared for
the auction. Shortly before noon the
two barrels of whiskey were trans- I
ported from the police station to the
, front of the County Court House. 1
j having been confiscated last October
i by Police Chief Holcombe and Uni
I ted States revenue officers, because
the barrels bore no markings to in
dlr;.:C their contents, which is a vie?
lation of the Federal laws.
I Dr. J. L, Dean was employed as
auctioneer by the deputy and and at
'the stroke of 12 he called for bids
for the first package Of whiskey. He
.was interrupted by the stentorian
j voic of Magistrate Stradley. warning
the crowd that Governor Blease had
ordered any purchaser of the bever?
age to be arrested. |
The call for a bid was repeated
and there came an offer Of $X from
Attorney Oscar K. Mauldin, son of i
Senator W. L. Mauldin. The auction- I
cer took up the criy. "Three dollar*, i
three dollars." etc. There were no
more offers and the hammer fell.
Bids for the second barrel of
whiskey were called for and Attor?
ney Mauldin made an offer of $2.
Again rang out the voice of the auc?
tioneer, but no one made a higher bid.
The hammer fell, and to the purch?
aser went $H?0 worth of champagne,
benedictlne and imported Scotch
whiskeys for the sum of Sheriff
Pools approached the purchaser and
placed him under arrest, while his
deputies seised the two barrels of
whiskey and bore them Into the Court
I louse. Later the attorney gave bond
of $200 and stated that he would
take action, through the "claim and
delivery" process, for the recovery of
the whiskeys.

_
a plan which hae been proposed * y
the Sumter Chamber of Commerce,
along With other similar organizations
throughout the State, that a central
organisation in which all of the com
merclal bodies In the various cities
throughout the State are represented,
be formed for the purpose of taking
up those questions which concern the
State as a whole and handling them
most effectively for the good of the
whole State.
This plan, while first advocated by
Secretary Snell of the local Chamber
of Commerce, has been taken up by
the secretaries in all of the larger
cities throughout the State and all of
them, with few exceptions, have giv?
en the plan their unqualified endorse?
ment. Charleston. Columbia. Spar?
ta nburg, the three largest cities in
the State, represented by their sec?
retaries, a. W. McKeand, McP. Ham
by, and John Wood, respectively, have
all written Secretary Snell heartily en?
dorsing his plan and advising means
and ways for getting their organiza?
tions together for the formation of

Other cities backward in their progres
Blvenees, Secretary Morgan of Flor?
ence. Merchant of Orangeburg, Brown
of Rock Hill, and the secretaries
from Greenwood, Georgetown and
Union have been beard from endors?
ing the proposition.
The object of the organiaztion. as
stated, is to take up and deal with
thoae matter! which concern the
State as a whole, and which can be
dealt with by a State organization. In
their work for the same end some?
times the various commercial bodies

Will take charge Of such matters when
several of the commercial bodies of
different cities ore interested in them
and it can better handle the matter
than the several bodies working sep?
arately. Tin-re are various phases
of commercial work which, it is ap?
parent to all, can best he handled by
a central body, and the various mat?
ters which concern only the local com?
mercial organisations will not be
j touched on at all by the central or?
ganization.
One of the things, for instance,
which the central body can handle
most effectively is the advertielng of
the State throughout the north and
other portion- of the country. While
the various cities can advertise their
separate resources and advantages, at
the same time the central body can
advertise the resources and advan?
tages of the State as s whole.
Various ways of getting together
the commercial bodies of the state
have been advocated by the secre?
taries of the State commercial organ?
izations, but as yet no positive steps
have been taken to form the central
organization, although it is probable
that the representatives of the com?
mercial bodies will meet at some early
date to discuss the matter and take

The governor favored dispassionate
dealing with the tariff question and
advised against "any changes so dras?

A letter from Gov. FOBS of Massa?
