Commission Does Not Accept the Report of
Xort Berle-Employait Other Experts.
"The commission not having been
satisfied with the report of Kort
Borle upon the domo of the Stato
house, had it examined by other ex
ports, who continued the rt port made
by C. C. Wilson as to tho safety of
its condition. Tho commission, there
fore, has decided to'do no further
work on the State house than what is
now contracted for, the plant for
heating and ventilation, and will
make a full report to the Legislature
of tho reasons ?or not carrying on the
Tho statement above was given to
the press last ni^ht by the committee
Appointed by the Legislature to pr?
vido for thc completion of the State
capitol. This commission was to
contract for such repairs as might be
foiyid necessary ana to install a new
heating plant. The members of this
commission are : Senators J. Q.
Marshall and (Jco. H. von Kolnitz,
Jr., and Representatives Altamont
Moses, C. J, Oolcook and S. T. 1).
Tho commission mot yesterday, in
?{ ecled the extensivo arrangements
for installing the heating apparatus,
ami seemed to be pleased with the
work. No statement in regard to
any proceedings ol* the commission
could bc secured from any <?t" thc
members except the above quoted
official announcement.
This will come as o surprise lo thc
people of South Carolina? Tho
commission asked (?ov. I ley ward to
get an export to decide between thc
contention of C. 0. Wilson that t!io
dome of the Stato capitol is unsafe
and thc claim of !'\ 1'. Milburn that
it is safe. Gov. Hoy ward complied
with thc request of tho commission
and asked the secretary of the treas
ury to send one of his best men here.
Kort Berle was designated to look
over thc work at the capitol. His
report, published some time ago, was
favorable in every particular to Mr.
.Wilburn and contained a number of
sarcastic references to thc calcula
tions of Mr. Wilson, The commis
sion based its appeal for expert in
spection on the ground that it was
desired to place in the main lobby of
the building a handsome steel ceil
ing to take the place of the one put in
by the contractors under Mr. Mil
burn's directions. It was declared
by C. C. Wilson, the architect
employed by^ the commission, that
the dome of the capitol is now
resting on imperfect support, |
and to add tho weight ot the
steel ceiling would be to increase the
probability of the dome falling.
The report of Mr. Borle waa re
ceived with dl?tuWi' ?>y tho commis
sion-and evidently with distrust
and it appears tba > other exports
have been called in. The identity of
these parties is unknown, but the
members of the commission evidently
rely upon their ability to judge tho
work, for they announce that (hoy
will not proceed with the work of
putting in tho ceiling. As four of
the members of this commission will
bo in the Legislature next year it is
(paite probable that there will ho
some interesting developments.

Kev. L. K. Campbell, ono of An
derson county's most popular cili
/.end, was 00 years old last Sunday.
Ile couldn't very well have a birth
day celebration on a Sunday, so he
waited until Monday and went out
into the Held early iu the morning
and picked 126 pounds of cotton hy
dinner time. Mr. Campbell is us spry
and active as many a man of Kl1
years old, and says he is just as young

of the State have a plan on foot for|
each member of the church to give
one day's work in ouch year to tho 1
support of the Connie Maxwell or
phanage at Greenwood. Mr. Camp
bell will count his cotton picking as
half a day's work for the orphanage,
and will do another special half day's
work for the orphanage later on and
send the money to that institution.

A Card from S. K. Cannon.
Lavonia, Ga., September 26.-Edi
tors Koowee Courier : In last week's
issue of your paper I notice that
your correspondent from Carnesville
stated that the Populist offices have
boen chasing men to fill them since
nominations were mnde some four
weeks ago. He further states that J.
VV. McFarland declined to accept
the nomination for county treasurer.
Then it was offered to a Mr. Jordan,
who declined ; then to S. Iv. Cannon,
who, it is claimed, has accepted.
As to tho above, if there is any
truth in it at all I do not know it ;
' bul in reference to myself as ever
: having the nomination tendered to
? me or my accepting the saino, I take
, this method t>? denounce as false and
malicious. 1 presume the Populists
of this county will bo able to find
, enough men in their party to accept
all their nominations.
Yours truly,
8. K. Cannon.
Barn Burnod Near Pickcns.
Pickens, September 28.-The large
barn and contents, belonging to Dis
penser B. C. Baker, were burned last
Tuesday night. The barn was on
Mr. Baker's farm, about two miles
from Pickens. The tenants in charge
of the farm did not notify Mr. Bakor
of his loss until early next morning
and there was then but little chance
of satisfactory investigation. There
is hardly a reasonable doubt but thu?,
the fire was of incendiary origin.
Mr Baker's loss was between $500
and $G0O. Four thousand bundles
of fodder, 50 bushels of oats and
about 10,000 feet of lumber were de
stroyed. Mr. Baker is at a loss to
know why any one would inflict
such malice upon him, and will offer
a liberal reward for the apprehension
of the guilty.
Boara tho The Kind You Haw Always Bought
Tom Watson's Campaign.
Thomas Watson, of Georgia, can- !
didate on tho Populist ticket for the
Presidency, made a campaign speech
before a small audience at Jackson,
Miss., on Tuesday of last week.
Mr. Watson said tho Populist
movement was on its feet again, and
that it would continuo before the
American people until it was tri
umphant. He said that there was
no difference between Roosevelt and
Parker, there being but one disagree
ment, that on the pension order.
He said that it was a matter of in
difference to him whether the Popu
lists were hurting thc Democratic or
Republican party the most, explain
ing that the reason he devoted most
of his attention to the Democrats in
the ?South was because it was from
this party hu expected to poll votes.
Mr. Watson finished his letter of
acceptance while in the oity and left
for Birmingham.
Compiling the Confederate Rolls.
Col. M. P. Tribble, of Andorson,
has at last completed the work of
compiling the Coufodorato rollH for
this State. Some months ago tho
War Department decided *o ask all
of the Governors of the various
Southern States to file with tho de
partment a roster of all those who
saw service in the Civil war. Gov
ernor Ileyward appointed Col. Trib
ble for this State, and since then the
work has been started and many
difficulties iii, getting names and
companies were met with. The
work, however, is now complete and
tho rolls have been sent on to Wash
ington to ba copied and returned to
the owners, and the book receipting
for them has been turned over to the
Governor. Over 200 new rolls were
discovered, and as near as can bo
ascertained, there was a total of
68,447 men in the service, not in
