Tomer South Carolina Executive
Accused of Responsibility in
Bank Failure.
By the Associated Press.
ALLEXDALE, S. C., July 11.—When
circuit court opened here today the
state and defense were ready for the
second trial of Wilson G. Harvey, for
mer governor of South Carolina, on
charges of violating the state banking
laws. His first trial, held in Charles
ton several months ago. resulted In a
hung jury. The charges against the
former governor, now a resident of
Greenville, grew out of the failure of
the Enterj>rise Bank of Charleston, of
which he was president. It is alleged
by the prosecution that Mr. Harvey
was guilty of violating the law which
prohibits the recent of deposits after
a bank is known Vo be insolvent, and
also that he authorized loans in excess
of the amounts stipulated by law.
H. Lee Harvey, a brother of the de
fendant in this case, was sentenced to
one year's imprisonment and $5,000 fine
upon his entering a plea of guilty to
similar charges, preferred against him
as a director of the bank. The state
supreme court later allowed him to
withdraw his plea of guilty, and he is
scheduled to again face a jury. Fred
C Peters, collector cf customs at
Charleston during the Wilson adminis
tration. who was indicted with the
Harveys, pleaded guilty to the same
charges and was fined $750, which he

Attorney General Stone dined. and to
young Harlan
Fiske Stone, she was committed as
her proper guardian In that year
when he became even more famous
than he is now. For he was right
guard on the foot ball team In the
season in which the President’s alma
mater walloped Williams’ College,
then thought invincible, and followed
up this victory by smashing the rec
ord of Dartmouth. “Sabrina,” In con
sequence of these achievements, was
given over to the care of the At
torney General’s class for he was
a stellar performer with books as
well with ball. So he was appointed
the personal guardian, and secreted
the big rag doll so effectually that
she remained in seclusion almost a
year, and to this day no one knows
where, for every inch of space where
young Stone kept his possessions was
turned over and in and out hundreds
of times during those lively scholas
tic terms. And to this day, fSabrina,”
or anything which concerns her, will
cause a laugh from the Amherst man
of that era.
Those were the golden days of
Amherst’ in the foot ball line as well
as being the ones in which a Presi
dent of the United States was In
the making and also his Attorney
General. George D. Pratt of New
York, whose name is likewise well
known in big affairs, captained the
eleven, and Stone was his able co
adjutor. "Sabrina” is still held in
esteem as the mascot, but the year
1594, when she was committed to
the care of young Stone, stands out
in her annals, for it was the first
time she was given permanently to
a class instead of to an Individual,
a custom which is still maintained.
Needless to add, the Attorney Gen
eral, like his confrere, the Secretary
of the Navy, rarely misses a spirited
root ball game, and he will be In
good trim for them this autumn.

Mystery Ship, Dog Sole Occupant,
Found Sailing Aimlessly in Pacific
Schooner Panviego, Not Listed in Maritime Records,
Believed to Have Lost Crew in Storm.
Nearly Wrecks Steamer.
By Consolidated Preaa.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 11—In the
floating derelict of a ninety-ton
wooden schooner now wandering aim
lessly about In the lanes of ocean
travel somewhere between San Fran
cisco and Panama, maritime author
ities here today have a tragedy of
the sea which is one of the strangest
ever recorded. The mystery derelict
Is that of the schooner Panviego,
apparently a ship without a country,
without registry at any port, and, so
far as can be learned, a vessel upon
which the maritime authorities of
the Seven Seas are unable to shed
any explanatory light.
Equally baffling as the question of
the place from which the ship hailed
is the fate that overtook her and
her captain and crew, presumed to
have numbered about twenty-seven
First word regarding the half-sub
merged hulk of the Panviego and
her fate has Just been brought to
this port by the steamship Satsuma,
en route from New York to the
Looms Out of Night.
The derelict was almost rammed
by the Satsuma off the western coast
of Costa Rica, several days ago.
Looming up suddenly out of the night
like a phantom of fiction, her sails
still set, the Panviego crossed the
bow 'of the Satsuma so closely that
a collision was narrowly averted.
When the master of the Satsuma
tried to hail her, there was no answer.
Also she carried no lights, and it
was noted that she sailed such an
erratic course that something must
be wrong. So the Satsuma stood by
until daylight.
When a boarding party was sent
to the Panviego the next morning,
they found her hold full of water,
most of her cargo jettisoned and
evidences that she had been through
a terrific storm. Captain and crew
were missing. The only living thing
aboard the vessel was a fox terrier,
evidently the ship’s mascot, which
was almost dead from hunger and
thirst. This In itself was strange,
as one of the age-old traditions of
the sea is that a ship’s mascot. like
women ard children, must always
come first In attempts at rescue.
Life Bmf* Untouched.
The mystery was further deepened
when It was found that all the life
boats were untouched upon davits,
and there was nothing to explain
how the skipper and crew left their
waterlogged ship. While sailors
from the Satsuma were aboard the
Panviego, another vessel, the Amer
ican tanker Cecil County, hove Into
sight and also sent out a boarding
The two boarding crews, despite a
long search, were unable to find any- ;
thing which would tell from what
port the Panviego sailed or whither
she was bound. The ship’s log and
her papers were missing, while the
water in the hold had erased the
labels and shipping tags upon the
small part of the cargo that re
mained unjettlsoned. .
The boarding party of the Cecil
County took off the terrior mascot.

The mystery regarding the Pan
viego was still further Increased
when the Satsuma reached San Fran
cisco and reported her findings to
the government hydrographic office.
Search of Lloyds and other registries
failed to show any vessel of such
Apparently the 111-fated vessel was
a ship without a country, bound from,
nowhere to nowhere, and with no
body to mourn the traglo end that
overtook her.
According to members of the Sat
suma’s crew. It Is possible, but not
probable, that the Panvlego’s captain
and crew all were washed overboard
in a storm. On the other hand. It Is
Improbable that the captain would
have been carrying the ship’s log
and other papers with him when he
lost his life. That the skipper and
crew escaped with their lives also Is
regarded as Impossible, because of
the untouched lifeboats.
