the conflict Is raised to acute form be?

The Pervia action, coupled with
the eminently warlike feeling pr? | I

Winthrop College, Rock Hill, Nov.
LT?.--The Correspondence Club of
Winthrop College has a memlo from
almost every county in South Caro?
lina. The girls meet every two weeks
and discuss the way in which the
Winthrop news can be made interest?
ing io the home people. It is the duty
of each member to write the general
news of Winthrop College and the
personal news of the girls from her
county, to one of tho county papers.
Thi.- club had its picture taken for
"the Annual" about two weeks ago.
The twenty-live girls from Sumter
county are doing all in their power
to uphold the reputation that tho for?
mer Sumter girls have made. We
feel as If we are holding our ground
very well, because out of the twenty
five, the following have college ojfi
ces Miss Harlot Herbert, Co?lege
Marshall; Miss Margaret Cheyne,
Vice President of sophomare class;
Miss Mabel Rooth. President of
Freshman class; Miss Katie Pitta
basbet-ball manager of freshman
claas.
Many improvements are being
made around the college. An annex
is being added to the infirmary, the
laundry is being enlarged, and pre?
parations are being made for enlarg
ing the auditorium. The Winthrop
Training school is almost completed
and it Is hoped that the new science
hall will soon be finished.

Tiie senate committees not only

Control no little patronage. The agi?

from the fact thai a few Democrats

position on practically all the impor?

seniority are followed, each win be

allowed to pick the chairmanship of j
one of these committees, and at the

Senators Baqon, Tlllman and Mar?

many committees. Senator Tlllman
Is the ranking Democratic member of
eight committees and under the sen?
iority system would be entitled in the
new congress to take the chairman?
ship of one and hold the second place
on till the others. Under the pro?
posed plan, he would be entitled to
select a Chairmanship but then would
have to give second place on the oth?
er committee to members not now
holding important positions.
Among the committees over which
Senator Tillman would exercise con?
trol are appropriations, interstate
commerce and naval affairs.
Senator Hacon commands the first
place on five committees among them
foreign relations, Judiciary and rules,
three of the best committees of the
list. In addition to being chairman

Tor Chesley Williams, the negro,
whom both the mother and girl de?
scribe as their assailant, in an effort
to lynch him. Tonight, some time ni?

outhouse not far from the scene of
the outrage and immediately with a
posse of live deputies left for parts
unknown.
"t >n the presumption that he was
hound for McRae or some other point
on the Southern railway, several cars
a half hour afterward left in pur?

"The crime was committeed a tew
miles out of Rhine, some 30 miles
from here. Last night, while the
mother and daughter were alone in
the house, which is isolated, the ne?
gro, who had been B farm hand on the
place, entered the house. He was
ordered out but refused to go. He
shot and seriously wounded the
mother and then assaulted her 18
year-old daughter. Shortly after fhe
outrage the men of the house return?
ed and the women told their story.
Since that time posses from all over
the countryside have been searching
for the negro. Negroes tonight told
tho sheriff where Williams was and
he found him in an outhouse hid?
