Off tor Cuba.
Mr. W. E. McKennon, one of Co
lumbia s enterprising business men,
of the grocery firm of McKennon &
Nichols, left this week for Havana,
Cuba. Since the "Pearl of the
Antilles" has been taken from un
der the blighting rule of the Span
ish government, a new and rich field
has been opened for American pluck
and energy, and Mr. McKennon
goes there on a speculative tour.
He has in no way severed his con
nection with his business interests
in this city, but, instead, we may
shortly hear that he has opened up
a branch house for his firm In Ha
vana. Mr. McKennon resided in
Mexico for some time, where he be
came acquainted with the Spanish
language and customs.

The SUy-nt-lloin Vote Count ARnlnht
Mt. Pleasant is still the "Phos
phate City" without a corporate
body. At' least that Is what the
friends of "No Corporation" claim,
and is the opinion of some of Co
lumbia's best lawyers.
The statute provides that a list of
all the qualified voters iu the dis
trict proposed to he incorporated,
shall he prepared and filed and that
the sheriff's return of said election
must show the number of voters on
said list, and that at least two thirds
thereof (that Is, the voters on said
list) have voted in favor of the in
corporation of said town. Other
wise, tiie proposition isueteateu.
In this election the lift proseiueti
bv law contained 402 names; the
necessary two thirds being U(H ; but
the vote "for the corporation was on
ly 210: thero being DO against the
corporation and W who did not vote.
Tiie proposition t'.ieretore iuckcu its
of carrying. In order to incorporate
a town, whether there h any opposi
tion vote polled at all or not, it re
quires an affirmative vote of tvi
thirds of the legal vote-i listed.
