Scraps and facts.
? For the first time in the history of transportation on this continent passengers for Washington and points to the south and west, walked into a station on Manhattan Island last Friday night, stretched out in their berths and rode through without change under the Hudson river. The new Pennsylvania station was formally declared open at one minute past midnight and the first train?a local?rolled under the river one minute later. The Southern express followed it at 12.30 and the first Incoming express pulled in at 12.50. Thereafter the run train scneuuic wcm into effect. ? In announcing last Saturday night the correct population of Seattle, Wash., and Portland, Ore., at 237,194 and 207,214, respectively, Census Director Durand issued statements giving the results of the re-enumeration made necessary in certain districts of the two cities by evidence of padding of the original figures. The original returns from Seattle contained 248,382 names, or 11,188 more than the final figures, says Mr. Durand. This difference represents names eliminated from various districts as not entitled to enumeration. The original returns for Portland contained 222,958 names, or 15,745 more than the final count, the latter number being on a careful rechecking of certain districts and the entire re-enumeration of- two others. ? Washington, November 28: Cases arising from nearly every section of the United States were passed upon in some twenty-five decisions announced today by the supreme court of the United States. The justices had spent much of the time during the Thanksgiving recess preparing opinions to be delivered today. One of the decisions had the effect of sending to prison four Alabama men for alleged peonage practices. Another held that the court could not review the power of a legislature to "gerrymander" a state for congressional purposes because the question had been raised in connection with the election of 1908 long since passed, and that a state may regulate liability for the non-delivery of messages in interstate commerce, so long as congress does not regulate it. ? Twelve hundred convicts, inmates I of the Virginia state penitentiary, hadl their first view of an aeroplane iasi Friday when John R Moisant sailed twice over the prison in a Bleriot machine. The flight was arranged for by a local newspaper for the benefit of life prisoners, many of whom were locked within the gray walls long before the advent even of street cars and automobiles. To them the sight was a revelation and like their fellows, they were too awestricken to shout. Reine Simon, Roland Carros and Rene Barrier. the French aviators, raced over the city in their aeroplanes after Moisant had landed. They circled over the historic state capitol and returned to their starting point several miles away. The conclusion of this spectacular flight marked the ending of the aviation meet here. ? Washington, November 26: "This is a pitiable sight," said Postmaster General Hitchcock today, as he pointed to a pile of letters a foot high lying on his desk, all of them complaints from people in various parts of the country who had invested money in "get rich quick" concerns, whose alluring announcement had promised large dividends to purchasers. Many of the letters contain stock certificates and bonds which were worth no more tnan tne paper iney were primeu Mr. Hitchcock declared that the department was "hot-foot" on the trail of some of the concerns and that he hoped they would be brought to the ground. "Many of these letters" said Mr. Hitchcock, "are sad commentaries on the misplaced confidence which men and women, many of them poor, have placed in their fellows. Thousands of such letters are received annually. The department is going to do its best to put these concerns out of business." ? Announcement was made in Charlotte last Saturday night of the purpurchase by the Southern Power company of the property and franchises of the Charlotte Consolidated Construction company, embracing the local street car lines, with twenty-six miles of trackage, gas and electric lighting systems and power plant. Both parties to the deal, which is understood to involve nearly a million dollars, decline firmly to mention the consideration. The Southern Power company has been projecting extensive interurban trolley lines in this section, but was capped at every point on the Charlotte inlet by the local company, which held a blanket franchise. The absorption of the local company means that the plans of the purchasers will shortly be realized. Dr. W. Gill Wylie of New York, is president of the Southern Power company, and both J. B. and B. N. Duke are heavily interested in the enterprise, which now owns all the important water power plants in the Piedmont section. The local plant is capitalized at $1,475,000. ? The Hudson county, N. J., grand jury on last Saturday arternoon, voted unanimously to return four indictments against James J. Gallagher, the discharged city employe who shot and wounded Mayor Gaynor on August 9, Inst. Twn Indictments will chartre as sault with intent to kill; first, on Mayor Gaynor; second, on William E. Edwards, commissioner of street cleaning'. It was "Big Bill" who seized Gallagher's arm and slammed him to the deck of the steamship Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, where the shooting occurred. The two remaining indictments will charge a concealed weapon in each assault case. Edwards and other city employes who struggled with Gallagher testified before the grand jury, as did others who witnessed the shooting. The jury adjourned until next Tuesday at 2.30 p. m.. when the indictments probably will be handed up in the supreme court. Gallagher, it is under stood, will be arraigned 011 Thursday morning, when his counsel will enter a plea of insanity. Gallagher gave out a statement tonight telling what a delightful Thanksgiving he had in the Hudson county jail, and declaring that he was "more than delighted that there was no cause for sorrow or anything but thanksgiving in the family of Mayor Gaynor." ? Sunday was a day of tranquillity in northern Mexico, according to official advices received by Gen. Villar. commander of the frontier forces of the Mexican army, at Laredo, Texas. Detachments stationed at different points between Matamoras and Ciudad Porfirio Diaz sent dispatches early Sunday and all were of the same tenor, that practically normal conditions prevailed. Similar statements were received from the detail of troops stationed along the border on the American side of the Rio Grande. General fear of a formid able uprising in the southern republic in seems to be dissipated. Capt. Haga- n< dorn of the United States army, com- ai mander of Fort Mcintosh, reported ev- w erything quiet at Minerva Sunday. He tl confirmed the Associated Press dls- ci patch that evidences had been found a at that town of the presence of armed ci revolutionists, but explained that they w had disappeared, either having made v< their way into Mexico or hidden in the ci brush. The captain further vouchsafed d the information that his soldiers had cl come upon a box which had contained cl a large amount of ammunition and which bore a Laredo mark. If present ir plans are carried out, company A, of c: the Twenty-third infantry, stationed A at Minerva, will be ordered back to b Fort Mcintosh tomorrow. a __________ w Jhr Hilorlsvillc (fnquirrr. cS ^ a Entered at the Postofflce In Yorkville '' as Mail Matter of the Second Class. a u YORKVILLE. S. C.i TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29,1910. ? "rtie Anderson "airship" at least flew. ^ | w n If courts of justice fail to command tl respect, the reason will he found to b be exactly the same as in the case of individuals in like circumstances? their own fault. | ti According to dispatches published ^ this morning, Francisco I. Madero. the leader of the Mexican revolution, is sf neither dead nor wounded. He is reSi ported to have advised his family of this fact himself. . Very often it looks as if the ques- jj tion whether or not a defendant comr< mitted a crime is a secondary consid j eration, while the main point is whether the prosecution made some trivial error In the proceedings. A The Anderson Daily Mail has discovered that Pocahontas was born in Mecklenburg county, N. C., and as yet n we have seen no serious effort to dis- p prove the assertion. So far as we are concerned, if the Mail says this is true, c< we are perfectly willing to concede it Rl as a fact. ei , m , w There is but one thing needed to c' make of South Carolina the greatest s' state in the world, and that one thing is the strict enforcement of all laws ai without fear or favor, and regardless of 'r " ' * 4 or nnnr &! wnemer iranasressuiB us ??v.? , influential or friendless. This condition w I does not now exist, and there is no u use in trying: to deceive ourselves with the idea that it does exist. But the w fault is one that can be easily correct- JV I ed. Men have only to eschew partisanships, resolve to do their duty at any cost and stand by the laws of the land. II " ' ~ tt That was a splendid achievement of p the town of Anderson in raising: $100,000 for a Baptist college. Subscriptions ranged from $5,000 down, and well in- 9( formed bankers of the city say that t, fully 98 per cent of the money can be w collected. The part that the Anderson ai Daily Mail has played has not been u emphasized, except by a few of the newspapers: but it is fair to say that n except for the work of the Mail, this Vl tremendous subscription would have never been raised. However, if the w Baptist brethren go ahead and do their ^ part, we feel sure that Brother Car- ^ penter will be about as well pleased as w if tho u'hnip sum had been donated to him. a . y In a quarrel like that going on in a Spartanburg over the office of meat Q] and milk inspector, there are a num- T ber of considerations. One of the ob- T jections raised against the main- (j tenance of the office is on the score of 01 economy, it being maintained that the ncity is not able to pay the salary. But it is a fact that people who cry econ- p; omy are not always sincere. It is quite w possible that the people who object to w the inspector would be willing to pay u the salary out of their own pockets if p they could only get rid of the annoy- rr ance of being made to keep their meat t< and milk products up to the standard, rr And if the inspector is really a good one, doing his full duty in a fair and Is intelligent manner, it is quite probable ci that his salary is one of tne best in- si vestments people can make. Economy ri is a great thing and an important h thing; but it is often used merely to c> prejudice. Is . m rr D. Ward King, inventor of the split- d log drag, also known as the "King" g drag, says: "There are three things a absolutely necessary in order to have si a perfect earth road. Now, it does not d make any difference which one of these b things I mention first, because they are, w as near as I can tell, of equal importance. You cannot take any one of the 01 three away without destroying the road d in the end. These things are smooth- r< ness, hardness and convexity. It must 11 be hard, smooth and oval. If it is not oval it will soon go to pieces. It may n be oval and smooth and not hard, and d< you know how they are when there is a about a foot or two of soft earth in the ei middle of them; when it is compara- ,a tively smooth and not hard. If you r< have them smooth and not hard, as I ft suggested a while ago, they won't stay " in order. Under all the circumstances they should be given the three qualities. The reasons why we have not P had these qualities in our roads are al two: one is, we didn't know these qual- N ities would bring results; the other is we didn't know these qualities could be g given except by expensive means. By a j the split-low drag we have learned a . very cheap way of improving the | roads." n . m hi One of the big tights at the opening JJj of congress next month will be between n< New Orleans and San Francisco for O -> ' ? 1.1 .! 1 C< lilt' WUI !U 9 VA|?U91llUii III tciruiauuii v/i ^ the opening of the Panama canal. t.j San Francisco has raised about $17,- w 000,000 for the purpose of the proposed |V exposition and is giving out the im- f;] pression that she does not propose to di ask congress for any money. New Or- ^ leans has not yet made a money offer; but is depending upon the logic of her t position close to the eastern entrance ta of the canal, and at the gat- of the j*1 Mississippi valley just between the great east and the great west. People til i this locality feeling that they are it interested one way or the other, e paying but little attention to the hole matter; but as a matter of fact ley are very much interested. The ty that gets the exposition will have tremendous advantage over all other ties in impressing the entire world ith its importance, and the new alume of commerce that is to be eated by the canal will flow in every irection from it. This section being loser to New Orleans than San Franisco, is naturally more interested in le development of New Orleans than 1 the development of the California Ity. If there is any immediate benet from the canal, and we believe that enefit will be great, the effects n> likelv to be felt here sooner by ray of New Orleans than by way of an Francisco. Of course, San FranIsco has a long pole with which to go fter the plum; but if the most peoie to be affected consult their inte'rest nd use their influence for all it is orth, New Orleans will win, as win he should. If our own Charleston rere in the contest, then of course, we rould be for Charleston; but since harleston is not under consideration, re hope that all of South Carolina's ?presentatives and all representatives rom the south will not only vote for lew Orleans; but do all they can to in this tremendous boon for the cresent city. Referring to the controversy in partanburg over the abolition of the fflce of food inspector, the corresponent of the Columbia State writes: While the principal reason advanced jt abolishing the position was that it as necessary for the city to econolize, the councilmen also argued that tie germ theory of disease was a ugaboo devised by physicians and that what was good enough for our fathrs is good enough for us." From this, It appears that the con oversy has become pretty acrid; but s usual, when men lose their tempers ley are likely to go to extremes. There i no profession which as a profession, lands higher than the medical profeslon?none more honorable?and in at?mpting to slur the whole profession lese councilmen may expect to pay le penalty of reaction. That there are 1 the medical profession, men who ily more upon what they don't know lan upon what they do know to impose ri their fellows, there is very little reajn to doubt. There are humbugs in le medical profession, of course, mong them are some who have the ill endorsement of their brethren; but obody but a fool would denounce the rofession as a whole. However, we r> not believe in the sincerity of those suncilmen, who hold that "what was ood enough for their fathers is good lough for them." On the contrary, e are inclined to think that if the lildren of any of these councilmen lould be attacked with diphtheria ley would ask for the injection of nti-toxin rather than for the burnig out of the throat with caustic potsh. Also we believe that the people ho expressed disbelief in the germ leory would be very careful about rinking a glass of strawberry soda ater in which typhoid fever bacilli ere known to have been placed. On the Witness Stand. To those who get pleasure from that ne of inquiry, human nature is an incresting study anywhere; but nowhere robably is it more interesting than in le witness box. There are a good many close ob?rvers who hold that if there is any ue manhood in an individual, the itness box is the place to prove it, nd there is not a little foundation for le observation. As to what kind of impression a witpks will make in any case, depends spent several nays last weea witn relatives in Clover. Mrs. R. A. Chandler of Mayesville, is visiting her mother. Mrs. W. B. Steele in Yorkville. Mr. John M. Rawlinson of Charlotte, is visiting his daughter, Mrs. W. W. Lewis in Yorkville. Mrs. W. H. Fowler and Mrs. J. J. Hunter are attending the U. D. C. convention in Georgetown. Miss Ollie Stowe of Yorkville R. F. D. No. 1, visited Miss Margaret Smith in Hickory Grove last week. Miss Julia Titman, who is teaching at Sharon, spent Sunday in Yorkville, the guest of Mrs. R. B. Lowry. Mr. and Mrs. J. Harry Spann of Clover, spent several days last week with Mrs. W. B. Steele, in Yorkville. Mr. W. M. Stowe of Yorkville R. F. D. No. 1, attended the dedication of Mt. Vernon church in Hickory Grove, Sunday. Miss Florence McKisson of Morganton, N. C., spent several days last week with Miss Margaret Moore in Yorkville. Miss Fay Cunningham, who has been spending several days with Mrs. J. C. Wilborn in Yorkville, has returned to her home in Waxhaw, N. C. Rev. J. L. Gates, pastor of the Yorkville Associate Reformed church has been in Winnsboro during the past few days assisting Rev. Oliver Johnson in a series of meetings. Rev. J. H. Thaeker, who has been in Yorkville during the past year in the capacity of pastor of Trinity Methodist Episcopal church, left with his family last Friday afternoon for Columbia pry much upon the temperament of le man; but it is a fact that every itness no matter what his temperaicnt, makes the best impression when e seeks only to tell the truth and the hole truth. There is a widespread feeling of awe t the supposed ability of smart lawers to confuse and tangle witnesses, nd many witnesses dread the ordeal f cross-examination for that reason, here is very little to this, however, he witness who honestly tries to tell le whole truth without equivocation r evasion is always more than a latch for the smartest lawyer alive. It is the man who tries to tell only a art of the truth and to hold back that hich he conceives to be damaging, ho is in the greatest danger of being ndone. He is an easy mark. It is a oor lawyer indeed who Is unable to lix him up in hopeless confusion and ) make of him a reproachful mark of dserable hopelessness. It is a fact?a deplorable fact?that itter day lawyers sometimes try to r>ach their witnesses as to what to ay and what not to say; but it is a are kind of a man who can sustain imself on the witness stand with a ut and dried story, especially if the iwyer on the other side is of even lediocre ability. The man who unertakes to conceal the truth comes to rief in nine cases out of ten, and it is matter of pretty common underlanding that the man who makes canid but truthful admissions against imself, stands a much better show ith a jury than the fellow who tries ) cover up a damaging truth by means f obvious equivocation. So well unerstood is that fact indeed, that even igues sometimes win out by running irough a bold bluff of feigned honesty. There is a lot of perjury in the witess box. Judges who thoroughly unerstand such things sometimes call ttention to this fact and people genrally see it very clearly. There are lws against perjury; but for some :*ason there is rarely any effort to enirce them. Just why, it would be difcult to explain. ? A negro named Flute Clark was ut to death by a mob of 2,000 people t Little Mountain on the line between ewberry and Laurens counties last riday night for the murder of a little bite girl 14 years of age. While the irl's mother was away from home on visit to a neighbor, the father who as working in the field two hundred ards away sent the negro Clark to the raise for a tool that was needed. The egro was gone for an hour or more efore he returned to the field. In the leantime a younger brother found the pad body of his sister, with her head early severed, and gave the alarm, n being accused of the crime Clark mfessed. He said that he went to le house for some water, and told the lild to bring some potatoes to the ell. She did so. He caught hold of ?r and tore off a part of her clothing, he said she was going to tell her ither and he killed her. He said he id not know what made him commit k* crime. The alarm was spread at ice and people gathered from all tarters, armed with guns and pistols, he negro was taken to Little Mountin, hanged to a tree and more than a lousand shots were fired into his idy. Governor Ansel was notified of ie lynching: but it is hardly expected lat he will try to do anything. is to abolish it and send the convicts to the penitentiary. The township supervisors seem to have demonstrated that they can get better results on the roads from a dollar spent for free labor than can be had through the chaingang. With the chaingang abolished and the money spent in its maintenance applied to the roads through free labor, there will be better roads and less cause for complaint. We have heard of some pretty good cotton crops this year and in most localities the crops are a little better than usual. One case has been reported where a farmer had made thirtytwo bales of cotton on twenty-six acres. But in some localities the farmers have not fared so well. This is especially true of a strip of territory about two mile wide and running from a point four miles northwest of Yorkville to a point five miles northeast of the town. Many of the farmers in this strip have made only from three to four bales to the plow. The trouble is due to the fact that they were able to work only four days in June when they ought to have had twenty-six days work. After that the weather turned off dry, and the cotton suffered from too much drough. Most of the farmers in this locality, however, have made very good corn crops. WITHIN THE TOWN. ? The creamery turned out one hundred and forty pounds of butter yesterday. ? The Yorkville Hardware company is moving its stock into the McNeel building across the street. ? If the Southern railway would only give the town that early morning and late night train to and from Columbia! ? The McNeel building has proved quite an eye opener for many of the strangers who have been in Yorkville recently. ? Yorkville now has the offices and store rooms, and it is up to people who would do business to get busy. The business opportunities of the town have never been better than they now are. ABOUT PEOPLE. Mr. and Mrs. Paul T. McNeel of Spartanburg, are visiting relatives in Yorkville. Miss Lilla Herndon of Yorkville, you Willi t* llHIHf auu piping, belting, roofing and other hardware needs. W. E. Ferguson?Has open kettle X. O. molasses and a large variety of seasonable faney groceries. Phone him for what you want. Only twenty-five more days till Christmas. York county's hog crop is rather larger this year than usual. It is another six page paper today. Subscribers should see to it that they get it all. It is anybody's fight in every township as to who gets those valuable premiums that are being offered by The Enquirer for the largest clubs. Mr. B. L. Jenkins of Bullock's Creek township reports that his neighbor, Mr. P. B. McAbee, slaughtered a pig the other day that netted 180 pounds at eight months and eight days old. So far as The Enquirer has information, the corn record of York county is still short of one hundred bushels. It is up to some of our wide-awake corn growers to pass the 100 bushels mark. Clubmakers are requested to send in their names as rapidly as possible. The more time the bookkeepers and mailing list men have in which to enter names, the less danger there is of mistakes. The article recently published in The Enquirer on the subject of "Waste Places in the Home," was by Miss Whittemore of Winthrop instead of by Miss Isles, to whom it was credited, through inadvertence of the copyist at Winthrop. That is an interesting comparison that Miss Russell makes between the ideal school house and the horrible example; but in order to secure the best effect of the comparison it would have been better to have mentioned the horrible example by name.

Shortly after he took charge of the Yorkville station, Mr. Thacker's health failed to such an extent as to virtually prohibit him from the exercise of the duties of his position. His trouble, due to diabetes is one that is peculiarly distressing, for though apparently strong and healthy, is unable to withstand the mental and physical strain that is required by his work. However, it can truly be said that his presence in the community during the year has not been without a beneficent influence upon those with whom he has been associated. Before leaving on Friday, he called on The Enquirer and took occasion to say that he desired the people of Yorkville to know that he very much appreciates what he was pleased to call the kind consideration with which he has been treated.

While some of us may not be getting what we consider to he our full share of it, there is no disputing the fact that there is plenty of money floating around among the people, and much of it is in big bills. "I have never seen the like before," said Treasurer Neil yesterday. It is a common thing to have negroes whose tax amount only to a dollar or such a matter to hand you a twenty dollar bill to take it out of, and they sometimes ninniner to the bank for change several times a day. "This time last year it was common to see taxpayers of this class going to one pocket for a quarter, another for a dime and another for a nickel to make up the amount of their taxes. | They generally managed to make the I change, and that was about all there was to it; but this year, it is necessary for me to ha%re ten and five dollar bills [ with which to make change. The bills they give me are often so large that silver will hard)y do for change. "While I was in the bank a day or two ago, I saw a clerk from one of the mercantile establishments making a deposit of a large amount of silver, and it occurred to me that this was what became of the large quantities of change that I had been getting from the banks to give back to the taxpayers." As he talked, Treasurer Neil was straightening up a large pile of bank notes and silver certificates, and indicating a stack of dollar silver certificates some four or five inches thick, remarked that there were more of these in the country also than had ever been seen before. He thinks that they are displacing silver dollars largely because the express and postage rates on them are lighter than on the silver. COMMON PLEAS. The court of common pleas having been opened last Wednesday with the sounding of the calendar, got down to the main work of the term yesterday ? nmnnlmllnn nf the Second Willi 111C Ui^aillAUVIVU V. ? week jury which, after the usual elimination was made up as follows: R. A. Jackson, L. B. Ashe, J. M. Caldwell, Fred G. Cook, C. T. Brandon, J. R. Scott, Geo. E. Ford, J. B. Barron, J. W. Summerford, D. H. Whitener, J. R. Stevenson, S. C. Moorhead, M. L. Carroll, J. K. Allison, W. Clyde Faris, W. B. Sturgls, W. J. P. Wylie, J. S. Turner, D. M. Benfield, C. F. Rogers, R. M. Robinson, W. L. Sturgis, G. M. Horton, J. C. Wylie, D. A. Robinson, D. J. Biggers, W. W. Love, J. F. Currence. T. W. McCown had been reported by the sheriff as not found and the following were excused: B. C. Ferguson, G. A. Gettys, J. B. Heath, L. B. Brown, B. M. Johnson, C. S. Moorhead, J. B. Gaston, R. H. Cowan. The first ease taken up was that of A. S. Hand vs. the Southern Power company, a suit for $12,000, for damages to the plaintiff's mill site on Allison creek, the said damages alleged to have been caused from back water from the defendant's power dam on Catawba river. There was an effort to try this case at the last spring term of the court but the jury failed to agree and a mistrial was ordered. Because of the length of the case, it being estimated that the proceedings would require at least two days, all the Jurors not engaged In it were excused until tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock. The following extra jurors have been drawn to fill out the regular venire; but they are not expected to report until tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock: J. C. Comer, J. R. Barnwell, W. M. Gettys, J. E. Lowry, Walter Rose, W. W. Wallace, J. J. Jones, A. L. Black, W. S. Dickson, W. L. Adams, E. M. Williams, C. H. Sandlfer. GENERAL SESSIONS. The court of general sessions which was still hard at work when the last issue of The Enquirer went to press, did not reach the point where it was ready for a sine die adjournment until Saturday night. The case of the State against Samuel Hart, colored, charged with the murder of Walter Jeter, also colored, near Rock Hill, on September 14, last, resulted in a mistrial. It was represented that the nuarrel that resulted in the killing: grew out of the action of JIart in reproving Jeter for his obstinacy in refusing to give automobilists right of way on the roads. Jeter resented Hart's interference and Hart killed him with a shovel. The jury remained out on the case for several hours and was finally discharged as unable to agree. After the jury was discharged, it was learned that it stood seven for murder and five for manslaughter. All were of opinion that Hart was highly blamable; but the disagreement hinged on difference of opinion as to how severely he deserved to be punished. The next case taken up was that of the State vs. Clarence Hood, Mack Hood, Ernest Mickle and Galther Mlckle. There were two indictments: but both having grown out of the same state of facts, by agreement they were tried together. The trouble out of which the prosecution grew developed out of a game of baseball at Hoodtown between the Hoodtown and Hickory Grove clubs on August 27, and was brought about by the guying, inseparable from the game. A pistol, brass knucks and baseball bats figured in a fracas, which developed between the defendants named on the one side, and Wightman, Paul and Walker Whittaker on the other. Some pretty hard licks were hit on both sides and Wightman Whittaker was so badly beaten with a baseball bat that his life was despaired of for several days after the trouble. In the testimony it developed that Mack Hood produced a pistol with which he covered one of the Whittaker boys, and Clarence Hood had a pair of brass knucks. There was considerable contradition in the testimony bearing on the question as to who was responsible for bringing on the difficulty, and after deliberating on the case for several hours, the jury brought in a verdict of assault and battery against Gaither Mickle. In the case of the others the verdict was nrtt guilty. Counsel for the defense asked the court to be as lenient as possible in imposing sen tence. Judge Moore, however, was un- t able to see it that way. He thought i the jury had been extremely lenient in * rendering a verdict of assault and ( battery when the offense committed ] appeared to be considerably more se- . rious than that and he expressed himself also as thinking that others of the defendants might very properly have 1 been convicted on the graver charge. < Under the circumstances, he could not I see his way to give a lighter sentence i than the maximum allowed by law? ] $100 or thirty days. He declined also 1 to allow the matter to stand over till I Monday without additional bond. De- 1 fendant's counsel gave notice that the , fine would be paid. In considering the original indictments in this case, the grand Jury got : evidence of probable cases of carrying j concealed weapons and found true bills against Mack Hood and Clarence Hood charging them with that offense. The 1 solicitor, according to his custom, took ' an order remanding the concealed wea ? -A" wooiatrQtp'a pftnrt. poll laoca iu me uiae.i,v.?., The last case of the sessions was that of the State against George Franklin, colored, charged with rape. The Jury found an verdict of not guilty. * 1 DEDICATION AT MT. VERNON. I The handsome new Mt. Vernon church that the Methodist congregation 1 completed at Hickory Grove about two years ago, was solemnly dedicated to ' the service of God last Sunday with exercises that were interesting and appropriate and which were participated in by a large congregation from the people of the town and surrounding . country and from distant points in the county. The gathering was not quite as large ' as was expected. The morning skies gave signs of rain, and many from a distance who had been looking forward to making the trip backed out; but still the congregation was as large as could have been made entirely comfortable, and there was no reason for disappointment on account of attendance. All the visitors were taken care of with Hickory Grove's traditional hospitality, and had the crowd been much larger none of the visitors would have even been able to tell the difference from the attention that was accorded them. The services of the day were conducted by Bishop E. R Hendrix, of the Methcdist Episcopal Church, South, assisted by Rev. T. C. O'Doll, , nresldlng elder of Rock Hill district; Rev. S. A. Nettles, editor of the Christian Advocate; Rev. H. W. Whittaker, the pastor of Mount Vernon, and Rev. G. L. Kerr, pastor of the Associate Re1 formed church of Hickory Grove. Bishop Hendrlx preached the dedicatory sermon from Luke ix, 33, on the "Transfiguration," and handled the subject In a manner that commanded the closest attention. The bishop also offered the dedicatory prayer, and in the course of a statement subsequently made, took occasion to state that this was the 24 9th church at the dedication of which he had assisted. After the sermon, the church was duly accepted from the building committee in behalf of the South Carolina Conference, the building committee con- , sisting of R. L. A. Smith, chairman; VV. S. Wllkerson, W, T. Slaughter, D. ( J. Smith, J. D. Whiteside, J. P. Ram- . 1 sey, R. A. Foster, J. T. Wilkerson, J. i Buice, J. M. Leech. The history of Mt. Vernon goes back to about 1835, when the congregation was organized at what is now called Unity, a church at this time belonging to the Baptist; but which at that time was the common property of all Christian denominations that desired to use it. The movement that resulted in the 1 erection of Mt. Vernon originated in 1856, and carried to success in 1858, the [ dedication taking place in July of that year. Rev. J. W. North was the cir- \ cult rider in charge at the time. This old building, a plain frame structure, was used continuously up to about two ] years ago, when the present handsome building was completed as the result of efforts commenced a year or two before, on the basis of a proposition like this advanced by one of the mem- < bers: "We have all the time been worshiping in a building that was erected by our fathers and grandfathers, and ( it is time now that the present genera- ( tion should do something for Itself and for the generation to come after." The ( subscriptions to the new church building were very general and some were quite liberal. The new building, as may be seen from the photograph published elsewhere in The Enquirer of today, is one of the handsomest frame churches in the whole county. TDTII I-7ITB ANAI VSIS. We have from Prof. H. M. Stackhouse, secretary of the board of fertilizer control of Clemson college, the fol- ( lowing additional statement with reference to the matter of analyzing fer- , tilizers: , It is section 1540 of the law (act , 1909) which provides "That any pur- ! chaser of fertilizers may have the same ( analyzed by taking a sample within 15 days after delivery, from at least ten per cent of the lot, in the presence of 1 at least two disinterested witnesses, J one to be chosen by the purchaser, and one by the seller, who shall have six days previous notice, and sealed in the presence of a third disinterested party, J accompanied by a certificate that it 1 was so drawn in accordance with this act." ! The manufacturers of fertilizers, with many thousands of dollars invested in their costly plants and ex- ; pensive machinery, are entitled under the law to protection and safeguard of their rights, but we have thought that section 1540 might be further simplified without impairing its efficiency or protection to both parties. However, 1 it is not the college but the legislature J which makes these laws, and we are ! bound to obey or be held responsible 1 for the analysis of illegal samples which we had no right to make. In our direction to farmers for sending these samples, we do not ask them to tell us who made the fertilizer or 1 how much of each is guaranteed, but ' only to tell us whether it contains ] phosphoric acid, ammonia or potash, or , all three of them. I am sometimes asked if these farmers' analyses could 1 not be made without knowing the 1 names of the ingredients. I reply, yes, 1 but the reason we ask these names is J to economize time and expense in their j analyses; in this way, if the chemists ! are t">ld to look for phosphoric acid, j they .nake a solution and analyze for 1 this on y; if told it contains potash and u ~ tVinv Avnm- I piiuspiiui lU Utiu, UIVII Vt*v^ vnw... ine for these two, or if told it contains ammonia, phosphoric acid and potash, then they are told to examine for all three. If we were told nothing, every sample containing only one ingredient would have to be examined for all three, and thus consume time and expense without any additional security or advantage to the farmer. This department with its inspection methods and analysis, will ever stand for the protection of farmers by insisting that they shall get what they buy, and at the same time, for honest manufacturers by protecting them from competition with others less scrupulous. Those samples found deficient below the very reasonable margin allowed by law, are published in our bulletin in capital letters, and with black index hand pointing to the name of the company, thus giving notice to buyers of the rebate in price to which deficiency entitles them. In response to an inquiry to manufacturers and farmers whether or not such rebates were being demanded, two of the for- J mer testified that they had paid them ' in pretty large sums; and we presume s that buyers generally avail inemscives ? of these rebates. Any one wishing further proof that ( every statement herein made is cor- \ rect, is respectfully invited to visit our r office and the laboratory here, where r records and evidence will be submitted 1 in proof of each. \ t LOCAL LACONICS.

Robert Davidson a white man, died 01 at his home in the Wilklnsville sec- a tion of Cherokee county, Saturday p night, as the result of a gunshot wound ? Inflicted by one of three negroes, Luther Curry, Ned Horton or Will Curry, " last Thursday night. The sheriff was L summoned to the scene as soon as the n affair happened and the three negroes fl are now in Jail. Davidson was picked up and taken to his home directly af- f< :er the snooting Dy some or ms menus i\ ind physicians were summoned who at u, ince decided that his leg must be ammutated as it was practically torn from " (lis body. This was done but he was b< jnable to survive the shock and died te (hat night. Coronor Vinesett went to r( ;he scene Sunday morning and an intuest was held. It seems from the tesimony introduced at the inquest that g< Davidson had been hunting and stopied at a negro church where a frolic ja ;vas going on to get something to eat fi] >efore going home. He obtained some- ^ hing to eat and started down the road -p jut was pursued by the three negroes ^i ind fired at by two pistols and a gun. 44 \ short time after he fell the negroes f0 eached the body and fired three more ihnts him.

Shi- ai *er, the colored barber, was haled into m na.vor's court Saturday morning on a pi ather serious charge, that of attempt- or ng to intimidate one of the city's main cl vitnesses in certain blind tiger cases re hat were worked up last week through ar he Instrumentality of two detectives be hat Mayor Hardin has had here for th teveral days working in a quiet way m imong the alleged illicit dealers. These be letectives are from the High Point De- se ective agency of Columbia, Mr. W. co ?. Taylor, manager, one being white, U J. T. Reagin by name, and the other ur olored, Tom Warner. These men se- 12 ured positions here, Mr. Reagin in Jt ne of the cotton mills and Warner in th . colored barber shop. The detectives st lad succeeded last week in working up 62 ases against Bud Neal, Jim Campbell de ,nd Ellen Campbell, all colored, and ne Tiday afternoon was set for trial of th Jeal's case. When the officers of the E( ourt assembled, however, and the case uf . as called it was found that Tom War- pf er, the city's principal witness, was da aisslng, and the case had to be post- in oned. Mayor Hardin was asiounaea hen he learned that Warner was not ) be found, and at once Instituted inuiries when he learned that Warner ad set out post-haste for Columbia, is haste being so great that he juldn't wait for a train, but had starti on foot. He pushed the matter furler, and was informed that Warner ad been threatened by Shiver with ire punishment if he didn't leave at nee. Shiver telling the negro that he Shiver) was a revenue officer, and lat he held something against Warner lat he would turn loose if the latter idn't "skiddoo" in thirty minutes. Earner must have been mpressed by tie threat, for he left without notice, nd was overtaken at Blackstock in le evening by two officers whom Mayr Hardin sent down to Intercept him nd bring him back. Shiver was ar?sted Saturday morning and brought > court. He sauntered Into court >oking big and pompous and flung imself down into a choice seat, but ie mayor surprised him within an ich of his life by ordering him to natch off his hat and take a seat mong the other negroes. He then sked Shiver if he was ready for trial, nd upon the latter answering "no," he iirther surprised him by ordering the fflcers to lock him up. Later he was eleased on $100 bond to await trial. Ihiver's story of the occurrence, which i perfectly plausible, is entirely diflfernt. He alleges that Warner, in add:lon to stealing a pistol from Josh , iterling, the barber for whom he was J rorking, also stole two razors from \ im (Shiver). He claims that he knew othlng about Warner's being a witess in the liquor cases, but went on to ecover his property, and that Warer, alarmed at the possible outcome f his acts, left the city. He disclaims ny and all knowledge of Warner's onnection with the prosecution of rhisky cases, and says the transaction etween him and the city's colored rosecuting witness was a transaction rought about simply and solely by he theft of this property, which he as trying to recover. The case gainst the three alleged blind tigers, fill be heard this week, and should rove extremely interesting. ? Bennettsville, November 26: The ead bodies of Guy Rogers and PrenIss Moore were found this morning bout 10 o'clock. As reported, these wo boys left home Thursday morning n a hunting trip. They went to Carder's Bluff, hitched their horse and uggy and nothing definite could be ?arned of their whereabouts until the odies were found today. Prentiss loore, aged 11, the son of Mrs. Emily ?. Moore, was found lying on the outh side of a branch about five feet < eep. His feet were toward the bottom f the branch and be clutched a rlar between his fingers. Examinalon showed that the load from a shotun had entered the side near the edge f the shoulder blade and ranged torard the middle of the chest, passing rtrough the body. The entire load, hot and wad, was lying underneath is clothes in front of the chest. Guy Logers, aged 15, son of N. B. Rogers, ounty treasurer, was found in the ottom of the branch only a few feet rom the body of little Moore. His face fas turned to the ground; his body fas nearly In a kneeling position, with is head in the edge of the water in puddle of blood. He, too, was woundd with a shotgun, the load entering hflort frnm the front.

One wad, that between tie powder and shot, was found inside tie shirt near the wound. The wound i young Rogers' body ranged slightly own from the front. A double bareled shotgun was found on the brink f the branch, the muzzle slightly eleated, pointing toward the dr'ch, one rigger cocked and in the breech was aught a small part of the shirt of oung Rogers. One barrel, the one rlth the cocked trigger, was found mpty: the second barrel contained an mpty shell. Another empty shell was iund within a few inches of the muzle of the gun. The branch runs lirough a broad field. An overgrown edge covered the banks of the branch, rhich is about five feet deep and about Ix feet wide at the top. Within about ; 50 yards is a negro cabin. An old nero woman who lives there said that he saw the boys out there shooting, ut that she paid no attention to them nd knew nothing of their disappearig. Within half a mile away are three ther houses. The point where the oys had hitched their horse was withi a quarter of a mile of where their odies were found. Thursday night nd Friday morning searching parties re re out looking for the boys. The arty was increased largely Friday ight and with lanterns the entire wamp on this side of the river was arefully searched. A party was again jrmed Saturday morning, many who ad been out all night renewing the earch, which was begun at the place rhere the boys were last seen, with le understanding that it was to spread radually and take in every foot of the round. The portion of ground where lie boys were found was assigned to party among whom were Frank Irosland and W. C. Carlisle. Mr. irosland was riding horseback up the ranch when he saw the body of young loore.
