? Washington, December 30: Representative
Lever will In a few days
Introduce a resolution in the house requiring
the director of the census to
make periodical reports as to the
amount of cotton held by spinners and
dealers, and in warehouses, etc., together
with the number of spindles in
operation. The resolution contemplates
that these reports shall be made
on the same days as the reports as to
ginning, condition of the crop, acreage,
etc., and the object is to provide the
cotton grower* with information as to
the supply on hand and the probable
consumption, so that they may govern
their operations accordingly. These
statistics, it is believed, will be of
much value to the farmers as the statistics
now given as to the ginning,
acreage and condition are valuable to
the manufacturers. Mr. Lever has
talked the matter over with the director
of the census and with a number
of the house leaders and has secured
their: endorsement of his plan and it
will quite likely be put into effect.
? Charlotte N. C.. December 30:
That the notion that war makes ior
manly development is at variance with
all history was largely the burden of
an address delivered here tonight by
Col. Henry Watterson, who advocated
the ratification of the pending peace
treaties between the United States
and England and France. Col. Watterson
spoke to a large audience and was
heartily applauded throughout his address.
At the conclusion of Mr. Watter
son's speech. Major J. C. Hemphill,
editor of the Charlotte Observer, offered
a set of resolutions endorsing
the ratification of the peace treaties.
A sensation followed when Mr. Cameron
Morrison, a well-known local attorney,
made a vigorous reply to the
proposition advocating the endorsement
of the peace treaties on the
ground that the constitution of the
United States delegates this power to
congress and that the matter should
be left entirely in the hands of that
body. The resolutions offered by Major
Hemphill were unanimously adopted
thus stamping the audience's disproval
upon Mr. Morrison's position.
? Shanghai, China, December 29:
The peace conference being held here
between the representatives of the
Pekin government and the revolution
ary party today agreed tnat tne iorm
of government to be ultimately adopted
for China should be decided by a national
convention whose determination
should be binding on both parties.
It also was agreed that pending the
decision of the national convention
the Manchu government was neither
to accept nor to attempt to obtain foreign
loans. Another agreement reached
is that all Manchu troops in the
provinces of Shan-Si-Shen-Si, HuPeh,
Nganwei and Kiangsu shall evacuate
their present positions and withdraw
from them to a distance of 100
li (about 37 miles) within five days,
beginning from December 31. The
republican ? troops. . meanwhile, shall
neither advance nor occupy the places
evacuated pending special arrangements
to be reached by mutual agreement.
The^Manchu troops are not to
advance nor to attack the positions at
Shantung held by the republicans, nor
shall the republican troops advance
upon nor capture new places. It is
understood that the national convention
to be called is to include those
delegates at present in conference at
Nanking who have elected Dr. Sun
Yat Sen president of the republic and
others to be elected.
? Democrats of the house of representatives
plan to eliminate from the
next sundry civil appropriation bill
the 3325,000 appropriation for the president's
tariff board, the 375,000 appropriation
for the economy commission,
and the 325,000 appropriation for the
president's traveling expanses. Democratic
members of the appropriations
committee are understood to be unanimously
in favor, of this elimination
prqgrafnxne and they believe that thet
cutting out of this expenditure of 3325,000,
all of which Is under the direction
of the president, will meet with
the approval of the majority party in
the house. The sundry civil bill will
De reaay ior suotnission 10 me uuusc
during January and the Democrats
plan to defend denial of the quarter of
a million appropriation for the tariff
board on the ground that the very
principle of a tariff body under the direct
supervision of the president is
undemocratic. They further will point
out that the constitution gives to the
house of representatives the power of
initiative in revenue legislation, and
will contend that a presidentially controlled
tariff board practically amounts
to a usurpation of this power. The
house Democratic leaders have an
economy plan of their own. and will insist
that the maintenance of the economy
commission is a waste of time and
money. They will argue that the house
expenditures committee for the various
departments of government can take
care of any economies that may be
needed if the members of the cabinet
fail to discover extravagances of the
administration. As far as the president's
traveling expenses are concerned,
the Democrats feel that the
annual appropriation of $25,000 for
that purpose is being used against the
Democratic enemy, and they propose
to cut it off for that reason. These
eliminated items are certain to provoke
lively discussion when the sundry
civil bill is reported.
? Columbia, December 29: "The present
text-book contract expires June
30, 1917. Under the contract one
company secured upwards of 50 per
cent of the text-book business of the
state. Such domination is neither
wholesome nor desirable. Its recurrence
or continuance should be made
impossible," is the statement made by
J. E. Swearingen, the state superintendent
of education, in discussing his
annual report to the general assembly
on the need of a state text-book board.
He points out that no more vital question
than that of the text-books will
confront the members of the general
assembly, and urges that some action
be taken. "The board charged with
the adoption of text-books," he continued,
"should be made directly responsible
to the1 people instead of to
the p*eontivp This board should be
composed of public school men and
should adopt books for all of the schools
of the state. A uniform series of
hooks should be adopted for city and
town schools as well as the rural districts,
but if voluntary* agreement can
be secured among independent districts
the substitution of this agreement
for the state adoption should be
everywhere allowable in long-termed
schools. The sole limitations being
that where once adopted it could not
be changed within six years. The
state text-book list should be so classified
and subdivided that not more
than one-third of the books in use
could be changed at one time. This
could be "readily accomplished if the
term of each adoption ran for six
years and if only one-third of the
books on the list could be considered
every second year." These statements
and suggestions are made by Mr.
Swearingen in the section of his report
dealing with the text-book question
and in discussing the wholesale
change made by the state board of education
during the last summer. After
discussing the merits of the text-book
contract, as prepared by the state
board of education, the state superintendent
of education says: "The board,
however, made sweeping and wholesale
changes." After discussing the
question of text-books in special districts,
Mr. Swearingen says: "I do
not believe that conditions in the state
are so different in adjoining counties
as to require tne use or aircerent series
o? text-books In the schools of
their court house towns. I do not believe
that children In the Piedmont are
so unlike children in the Pee Dee that
they can not be taught from the same
books. If school authorities in independent
districts can not employ the
books required In other schools of the
state, they should at least be able to
agree among themselves on the best
text-books for city and town schools.
Such an agreement would increase the
efficiency of the schools and would effect
a considerable saving to our industrial
classes, for these are the folk
whose work compels them to move
frequently. The existing wide-spread
diversity offers a fertile field to the
publishers and furnishes a golden
harvest to book agents, who annually
corpe to reap it. Moreover, such a
voluntary Agreement among the inde- |
pendent districts would prove of lncal?
\ i
cuable assistance to the state board of a
education in prescribing a uniform g
series of text-bobks for the 1,800 (
school districts of the state created
and operated under the general school *
law. If teachers and superintendents t
in these districts can not come to- a
gether by consent, the law should step
In to protect the taxpayers and pa- c
trons." "

YORKVILLE. S. C.t
TUESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1912
An important thing to remember
during 1912 is that most of the support
of all the towns comes from the
. country surrounding the towns.
The man who by his labor creates
something valuable is the man who Is
really worth something to the community
in which he lives.
The general assembly convenes next l
week and during the month following <
the subject of politics will be to the ?
fore. Put let us, those of us who are t
oonHno- a Of* hftU' 111 H lolfl 1 >
minded we can be. Let us not mistake J
epithets for arguments or charges t
for proofs. Let us be careful how we t
foster dislikes lest we blind ourselves f
and do ourselves harm by doing others
injustice. r
? I
Will Charleston really butcher s
Judge Memminger on account of that r
injunction in which he was so dead s
right, is a question that is to be t
answered at the next session of the f
general assembly. It is a pity that ?
the people cannot take a hand in this I
matter. *
? r
While passing through Columbia t
the other day. the editor of The En- t
quirer gathered that the people who *
undertook legal steps against the race t
track aroused the opposition of the *
hotels, restaurants, etc. The idea is s
that the racers are people who. have
to eat and the importance of selling *
people things to eat is greater than (
the moral issue involved in gambling
at the race track. But nothing could s
be more natural. Is not Columbia the j
town of square meals? t
? I
Governor Blease can be polite and '
courteous when he tries and sugarcoat
the bitter pills he administers to
state officials whom he calls down. His 8
recent letter to State Treasurer Jen- j
nings is a specimen or tne reprimand courteous
and is in striking contrast
with the knock down and dragout buf- ,
feting administered to Col. Watson, the
submissive and unresentful commis- ;
sioner of agriculture.?Sumter Item. *
But then, you see, that while Gover- t
nor Blease is Commissioner Watson's v
boss. Treasurer Jennings's boss is the r
people. ?
* 1 v
Governor Blease wrote Commission- j
er Watson recently to this effect,: "My ?
understanding is that you are com- ^
mlssioner of South Carolina anu not t
of the United States ,and if you leave t
the fltate again without my permission c
I will declare the office vacant and 0
put somebody on the job who will hold t
it down." Watson replied that he was 1
not aware of the governor's objection ^
to his leaving the state, and promised t
to be good in future. Watson's term
expires in the spring; but there seems jj
to be no reasonable probability that he t
will be his own successor.
Prof. Tate, superintendent of rural J
school work in South Carolina, is ad- i
vocating quite an improvement in the 1
present method of awarding certificates e
to teach in the public schools of the t
state. He seems to be possessed of the r
idea that many of the county hoards T
of education are too weak to properly
enforce the law and that they give out
first and second grade certificates a
little too promiscuously to persons who r
are really not entitled to them. His v
idea is to continue the present system
of examining applicants at the various f
county seats, under the supervision of {
the county boards and on a basis of t
questions prepared by the state board;
but he wants to relieve county boards
of the duty and responsibility of ex- f
amining papers and awarding certifl- .
cates. Instead of leaving discretion
with the county boards Prof. Tate ^
would have all papers sent to the state
board.
1 1 v
Governor Blease has written a let- v
ter to Treasurer R. H. ^Jennings re- a
monstratlng with him forgiving out c
information to the newspapers show- s
ing the slowness with which tax mon- ,
ey is coming in. The governor takes y
the position that just now while the .
state is desiring to refund some bonds t
such information is calculated to have s
a bad effect. Somehow we do not see
it that way. We know very well that
the state of South Carolina can and
will pay her obligations, and we know
that there is no significance to the t
slow tax receipts other than that peopie
like to put off the evil day of tax
paying time as long as they can. It f
has ever been so and it will ever be so.
But so far as the effect on bondhold- j,
ers in concerned Capt. Jennings' information
cannot be bad. Xo class of
people appreciates frank dealing more
than the class that has money to invest
in bonds and no class is more dif- *,
ficult to deceive. If the newspapers do f
not print the information the? want (
they will take more trouble and get t
that information otherwise. If they j
cannot get the information in any
way. then they will not invest, and
that Is all there is of it. We do not
know of a way whereby State Treas- ^
urer Jennings can do the public credit j.
more good than by dealing frankly t
with the public.
- - r
Now, after all this talk, we have It. v
Representative McQueen of Marlboro r
county, has gotten Hon. John L. Mc- e
Laurin to prepare a bill embodying a >
cotton validation plan, and the pre- i;
sumption is that the bill will be Intro- a
dticed at the next session of the gen- c
eral assembly. The text of the bill, i
.with the correspondence accompanying
it. is reproduced from the News and v
Courier in The Enquirer of today. The n
question now is. what will the general o
assembly do? That the proposition v
appeals to new ideas In South Carolina p
legislation must at once be admitted; t
but we hope it will not be at once condemned
on that account. The people e
of the state have been thinking and c
talking along this very line for years, tl
ft.
md now that we have something tan;lble,
why not venture the experiment?
)f course there will be opposition
rom various sources. There will
>e opposition on the ground of
illeged paternalism; there will be
ipposltion on the ground of iglorance;
there will be opposition on
he ground of politics and there will
>e opposition on the ground of interest.
Anybody can understand that even if
his proposed plan is to be an assured
mccess, it must necessarily overturn
he established order of things, and the
established order of things is not always
perfectly ready and willing to
je overturned even for the public ben
*flt. But if we are going to have a
warehouse system, why not have a
varehouse system right, with the whole
itate behind it, and the whole state
jetting the benefit. As we see it, the
>ill does not ask the state or anybody
dse to give the cotton producers anyhing.
It merely asks that the cotton
jroducers have the benefit of the state
redit, which is based in such large
neasure on the values created by these
lame cotton producers. But here is
he bill. Representative McQueen will
10 doubt put it up to the general aslembly
and that body will either pass
t as it stands, amend it where it ap>ears
to need amendment or let the
vhole thing drop. However, what>ver
the legislature may do, the end is
lot yet. This problem of how best to
lnance the cotton crop still cries for
lolution and it is going to continue
vith us until it is settled and settled

ast Friday prints the reasons that
Sovernor Blease will give the general
issembly for pardoning G. Wash Huner,
convicted of manslaughter after
)eing tried for the murder of Elbert
F\ Copeland of Laurens. We regret
hat we have not the space in which
0 print the governor's reasons In full,
or they are very interesting. While
are inclined to believe that the
nanslaughter verdict rendered against
iunter was correct, and that he
ihould have been punished, we are
levertheless impressed with the reaons
given by Governor Ulease for setIng
Hunter at liberty. In brief, the
easons are that Hunter did not have
1 fair deal at the hands of the sujreme
court. Such a statement would
lot be entitled to much respect orcularily,
and at no time would it be enitled
to respect on the mere declaraion
of aaiy man whether he be governor
or only private citizen; but with
he official records in evidence, the
natter is different. Governor Blease
lubmits the following:
"In delivering the opinion of the
itate supreme court, and I beg you to
rery carefully observe the words quot d
here, Mr. Justice Woods said:
" 'The contention that the judgment
.hould be reversed because the record
loes not show that the grand jury
lad found a true bill, requires no furher
notice than to say that no such
>osition was taken in the circuit
ourt, and. therefore, can not be conildered
on appeal.' 63 S. E. Rep.,
>age 686.
"That opinion was delivered Februiry
23, 1'809. July 19, 1909, the same
udge, writing the opinion in the case
if the state against Lazarus, said:
" 'Under this exception to the rule,
t must be held that where the law reiuires
the presentment of the grand
ury as a condition precedent to the
rial of the crime, the grand jury is
he constituent part of the court, and
without its presentment the court has
io Jurisdiction of the cause; hence, an
ippellate court will declare void a
onviction obtained in sucn caaeB
without the presentment of the grand
ury f?n lack of jurisdiction of the
ubject matter In the trial courts. . . .
n such cases this very lack of Jurisliction.
In the trial court, will declare
he conviction of no effect even where
he point Is not made in the trial
ourts.'
"Now, by reading the two decisions
if this very distinguished, consclenious
and Christian judge, you will see
hat In the Hunter case he says 'retuires
no further notice than to say
hat no such position was taken in
he circuit courts.'
"In the Lazarus case he says, 'will
leclare the conviction of no effect,
ven where the point is not made In
he trial courts."
"Now, why is it that in the Hunter
use. what has been the law of this
ountry ever since the Declaration of
ndependence must be set aside, and
n the Lazarus case, only a few weeks
ater, he returns to that well established
old principle of law and declares
rhat Is and has been the law?namely,
hat the question of jurisdiction can be
alsed at any time, even In the suireme
court?"

Here we are at the beginning of a
lew year, which began yesterday, and
vhich is now fairly on Its way.
There has been a good deal of talk

here has always been as much as
here could have been.

under the name of^ "Oscar," Mary
Owens last week resumed her female
garb, and made a sensation in the
community. Mary explained that she
had adopted man's clothing in order

? Columbia, December 301 Taking
the position that the racing >meet has
been concluded and that If $ "public
nuisance" ever existed it is now abated,
attorneys representing the Ctlumbia
Racing association, the fair society and
several individuals, late today fHed a
petition asking that the injunction'proceedings

The proceedings were begun upon affidavits

was being conducted in connection
with the racing meet.
\
^ A
t Is a fact that the people are not as
lush of cash as they would like to be,
>ut so far as the times being hard is
concerned, that Is bosh.
While cotton is much lower than
vas expected and much lower than we
could like to see it. still the country'as
i whole is not hurting, for among
ther things the com cribs are well
locked and if the smokehouses are
lot full it is because the thousands of
togs have been allowed to remain in
he pens and barnyards against the
ime when they are needed in the
mokehouses.
Of course it Is not to be denied that
ome have been unfortunate and faild
to make both ends meet as the reult
of the last yea rework and while
hat is regrettable in th&xcase of each
me of such individually and all severilly.
we do not think that Utere is
nuch doubt of the fact that tnfc state
is a whole, and this county especially,
s In better shape than It has evei; been
it the beginning of any previous'year
ince the war. ^
Those however, who insist that the
par lust closed das not a srood < ne
vi11 do well to take encouragement
rnm the commonly accepted belie
hat it Is an uncommon thing to have
wo bad years in succession, and that
f they will go in after the present
rear in the right way it is bound to he
i good one.
There are portions of the state that
lave been harder hit this year than
las this portion. The portions where
hey have been hit the hardest are the
tortions in which they devote their alnost
entire attention to cotton, and
there they have raised no corn or
neat. These portions of the state howver,
made a very nice thing of it last
ear, and this year are only experiencng
an evening up which though not at
11 acceptable to them, is as sure, as
ertain and as logical as the succeedng
of one year by another.
What our people should do, and
ihat we hope they will do. Is to lose
o time in bewailing hard times, real
r imaginary; hut to make careful reiew
of the operations of the year just
iast and try to correct this year all
he mistakes that we made last year.
So far as the seasons and the weathr
are concerned during this year, we
an have no more control over them
ban in the past; but of ttyat there is
calculate, as we have been calculating,
that the seasons are In good hands,
and that if all of us will perform our
own parts faithfully and creditably
everything else will take care of Itself,,
The year 1911 was all right to the
extent that we discharged our respective
duties by It and the same will be
true of 1912.
Garlington and Young.
Although as we have taken occasion
to say before, we have no acquaintance
with Garlington and Young, the men
who are in the penitentiary In connection
with the Seminole swindle, we
consider their case a very Interesting
one. and we sincerely hope that the
thing will be sifted to the very bottom
hefore it is done with.
From what we had seen on the subject
we had begun to assume that the
pardon of these men by Governor
Blease was a foregone conclusion; but
now It does not appear exactly this
way. On the contrary It appears that
the governor Is taking a very sensible
view of it all. and that if he grants a.
pardon he will not do It-except underi
conditions that will be very advantageous
to the public welfare.
Convinced that while Garllngton and
(Young have told much of the ti-nth.
they are keeping back a great deal,
the governor says he wants them to
tell It all so the people of the state
may have reliable Information as to
who Is really responsible for It all. The
governor's statement leaves ground
for the inference that while Garllngton
and Young are taking all the
blame, It Is probably on the basis of a
thieves' agreement that there Is no
need for all of the guilty parties to the
conspiracy to suffer when the !a\y can
be satisfied -with one or two scape?'hn
u-niiirt hnvp been made to
suffer even if the others had been Included.
,
Now, while this arrangement may
be a very convenient, and practical one
for the thieves, It Is not best for thie"
public. In a thing like this the public
has a right to know every one of the
guilty parties. The knowledge is valuable
and necessary as a matter of
self defense. If the others who are
guilty were Judicially exposed, then
their capacity to do more harm would
be very much lessened, and for that
reason the public should be informed.
There may be those who think that
the men who gave the use of their
names in this matter did so in good
faith; but there are others who are
unable to see it that way. It is diffl
cult indeed to reconcile the idea that
men of the money getting experience
and characteristics of the men higher
up went into this thing without understanding
what they were about. The
best that can be said for these men is
that they saw a possibility of success
in getting something out of nothing,
and feeling that they were in a position
where there could be no very
great risk to themselves, they wen\
Into the venture.
In his letter to the governor. Receiver
Tompkins has outlined the general
scheme of the managers of" tht?
very questionable enterprise; but of
course he has not undertaken- to ga>
into details of the organization by
which the public was to be fleeced,
and by which It was fleeced. That Mr;
Tompkln8 knows all about this. In the
same way that most other well Inform-;
ed people know It, Is very probable;
but of course it Is not up to him to
develop the matter in such a letter as
he has written.
If there Is any fair way to get a con*fesslon.
a full and free confession out
of Garllngton and Young, we would''
be very glad to see It. The conviction
and punishment of these men, of
course Is worth something, but It Ip
,not worth the one hundredth partner
what the full expose of all the con^t
spirators in the Seminole swindle-'
would be worth.

The Rock Hill Fertilizer Co. ha* an tf
Interesting announcement to the farmers
of York county In The Enquirer ^
of today. The company, of which Mr.
R. T. Fewell Is president, has inaugurated
a vigorous educational campaign
among the farmers aro\ind them, and H
proposes to fertilize the soil right here
at home. The advantage of such an
arrangement to all parties Is obvious. The
company understands that It must Pj
deliver the goods to get the business.
and the farmers can readily see that ?
If ground for complaint should arrive cl
they will not have to go far for satis- tc
faction. ^It, is a fact that this company dl
has been showing a very liberal and jS
intelligent Interest in the fertilization
problems of the farmers, and it Is J*1
gratifying to note the signs It Is glv- T
Ing of increasing activity. hl
Our old friend, R. M. Wallace of
Clark's Fork, was in Yorkville yester- V
4ay, in attendance at the regular t
monthly meeting of the county board"
of registration and when asked what G
'was the srood word, said:- "Why. ev- ti
erythjng is all right. The people out P
my way all had a good, enjoyable time P?
during the holidays, everybody had hi
plenty to eat, there were no deaths, no a
sickness of any consequence, no'drunk- m
enness or other bad behavior, and just cs
nothing that you .could call bad. For cc
!my own part. I have good health, fr
enough money to pay for The Enquirer bi
for another year and a little more, arid
If there la anything for me to complain
about I do not know it." People who
may be looking for. the man with a
grouch or who want to hear something p,
,sour said about somebody, will do well pi
fto stesr clear of ."Uncle Bob." ^
~<lt is with a considerable measure te
of regret that a majority of the people >,'
of Yorkville give up Messrs. John Q, tr
Barnwell and Charles H. Berry, who tr
have had charge of Yorkville's water, b<
light and power departments. Mr, w
Barnwell is a Clemson man, and came pi
to Yorkville shortly after graduating ai
from Clemson as an electrical engineer.
His management of this busl- O
ness of the water, light and power de- Jt
partments has been all that could be to
desired. He has been faithful, ef- w
flcient, accommodating, frank and th
open In all his dealings, and has na- of
turally won the respect and esteem of y
all with whom he has come in con- n<
tact. Mr. Berry is a Yorkville boy, w
born and reared here. He acquired his fa
knowledge of electrical engineering r
principally under the Instruction of w
Mr. Barnwell, and he acquired this
knowledge well. He is no less
efficient, frank, open or manly than his x
chief, and his position In the confl- "w
dence and esteem of the people of p]
Yorkville is just as high. Both are eI
men who know how to deliver the goods js
in their respective lines, and both are jt
gentlemen, high-toned, good-natured p,
and clean. Rock Hill or any other ^
town mav well have cause for con
gratulatlon In securing their services.

Just as an intimation as to how The rs
Enquirer's club contest is going at

that the figures have no significance

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS.
The county board of commissioners b*
will hold its regular monthly meeting E
tomorrow and Its annual meeting on re
Thursday. w
There will also be held tomorrow w
a joint meeting of the county board st
of commissioners, the township road oi
supervisors and the legislative dele-, pi
gation. This meeting is provided for
by statute in order to give the officers oi
named opportunity to consider the th
general needs of the county, w
Most of tomorrow's meeting will $;
probably be devoted to the considers- m
tion of such matters as may be brought h{
up for legislative attention, and the th
balance of the time on both da/s will h<
be devoted to the auditing of claims. ar
Among the matters to come up for th
discussion tomorrow are the question pi
of changes in the present fortn of ta
county government and of modernizing ge
the county home.

SALESDAY. Jc
Salesday?today?was equal to yesterday,
the first Monday, from the ,
standpoint of attendance from the
country, and today's crowd had some t
advantage over that of yesterday in h<
business character. The sales by the hf
clerk were as follows:
In the case of McKnight vs. McKnight,
122 acres. Bought of I. B.
McKnight for 1675. ,
In the case of Foster vs. Foster, 114J .
acres and 854 acres. Bought by J. S. . ,
Brice, attorney, for $5 an acre.
In the case of Stanton vs. Stanton,
74 and 65.10 acres. Bought by Dr. T.
N. Dulin for $11.75 an acre.
In the case of Love vs. Love, tract se
of 107i acres. Bought by J. S. Brice, ?r
attorney, for 16 an acre.
A tract of 197J acres In Broad River
township, sold by E. D. Darwin, D. E. ''
Finley and J. F. Kell, attorneys in aa
fact, was bought by S. N. Johnson, Jr.

TAX COLLECTIONS. H!
The usual year-end rush of taxpayers
came last Thursday and Friday, and M
with big mails by every train the loi
county treasurer was almost over- th
whelmed with checks hurrying to come T1
In before the 1 per cent penalty should Jo
attach. loi
asked yesterday as to how he th
^^-?*fuping along, County Treas- wj
""^Could not tell exact- sh
r, hut from what had come in and i
le big pile of checks still in sight, he i
lought he had an aggregate of be- c
veen >146,000 and >150,000 collected. (
e was of opinion also that tax collec- t
ons had been about as close as usual, c
The total amount charged against t
ork county by the state treasurer is (
>2,402.42, and of this amount Treasu- 1
?r Neil has already sent forward to
reasurer Jennings, >40,453.54. The 1
robability is that the remaining >10,- l
)0 will be available when the checks i
nd orders now on hand have been t
orked up. t
An unusually large number of the t
eavlest taxpayers came in, in time to f
scape the 1 per cent penalty, and (
lost of the receipts still to be torn from ,
le books are those of smaller taxpay- (
rs, wnicn means m?i mere is sun a
trge amount of work to be done In the
fflee of the treasurer before the total

CASE OF MIUU8 PARTLOW. ]
The outlook Is that while Milus
artlow may spend some years on the r
iblic roads of North Carolina, he will t
;ver be tried for the dta^ftlieal at- i
mpt to wreck the C&rbitft& and J
orthwestern railway's passenger
aln No. 10, at Crowder's Creek on 8
le morning of September 19, and all li
;cause the Charlotte police officials c
111 not give him Up except upon the
tyment of a regard to which they
e not entitled. ' *(
From a statement in the Charlotte s
bserver of Saturday, it appears that r
is the disposition over in Charlotte _
i attribute the peculiar situation of
hich Partlow Js getting the benefit to li
le alleged dog in the manger policy t
' Constable Horace Johnson, of t
ork county; but that version will
)t be accepted by reasonable people 1
hen they are unacquanted with the g
icts. And because common justice <3
squires the publication of the facts, f
e give them herewith. g
With the circumstances of the atmpted
wreck of the C. &. N.-W.'s e
o. 10, and the perilous position in c
hich a train load of passengers was a
aced for a few moments, the read- a
3 of The Enquirer are. familiar. This c
the first paper tha( told the stpry. ?
was The Enquirer also which first c
Ltblished information of the fact that f
ilus Partlow was suspected of hav- a
g loosed a plate bar, on the trestle, v
Is object being to collect insurance -5
i the lives of his two boys and make f
tuse for a damage suit against the ?
ill road company. ii
As to how The Enquirer got the in- t
irmatlon that Mllus was suspected n
id whv. does not matter. It came
om Mr. S. X. Johnson and his son, g
onstable Horace Johnson; but was a
Jt intended for The Enquirer. As a I
atter of fact they were not ready to v
ve the information out, and The r
nquirer kept quiet on it for more g
lan a week before publishing any- o
ling. It would have held the inforation
back longer; but it appeared ^
lat others were about to get hold of a
, and The Enquirer did not care to a
? beaten- Constable Johnson was a
3t ready for the publication when it e
d come, and although he was un- s
lie to find any fault with the accu- s
icy of the story as published, he t
tme to express regret, because Mi- b
s Partlow himself, who had not yet t
;en arrested was a subscriber to The g
nquirer and Mr. Johnson was . not li
ady to have Milus know how much e
as known about him. Another thing s
as that the Messrs. Johnson frere t
ill working up testimony from vari- n
is sources that would be closed by
emature publication. P
Largely as the result of the previ- s
is investigations of Messrs. Johnson, d
te C. &. X.-W. railroad authorities 1;
ere induced to offer a reward of f
!50 for the "arrest and conviction of li
ilus Partlow." Mr. Horace Johnson f
id charge of the promulgation of n
lis reward, and on his own account
? offered $50 simply for the negro's n
rest. Feeling sure of his ground on 7
le strength of the evidence he had
eviously collected, he made no hesi- p
tion in offering the $50 to get pos- e
ssion of the pegro. tl
In addition to offering the reward n
r. S. X. Johnson and Constable n
ihnson were hot on the trail of Ml- tl
s all the while. They had gotten sev- t<
al correct clues as to his probable tl
hereabouts; but had beep unable to b
ib him. They were hot upon the o
ail of the negro even at the time of c
s ttrrt'ai, unci t?iey icii ?uic mew iuoi
a capture was only a matter of a n
eek or two. In that, of course, they t<
ay have been mistaken. a
How Partlow was followed to Char- p
tte as the thief who stole Mr. Hope's rr
am, and how he wag subsequently v
entitled as his own self has already
en told. If Magistrate T. B. Glenn a
ho followed the negro to Charlotte, p
ild the arrest charges and got pos- d
ssion of him had only brought him p
i back to Yorkvllle. maybe a good fi
al of trouble would have been sav- tl
I. Hut under the circumstances Mr. si
lenn Is not to be criticised. So far k
practical results are concerned it g
is eminently more important that tl
e negro be tried on the charge of tl
tempting to wreck the train than h
>on a simple charge of breaking and g
tering. and that Magistrate Glenn p
ould have informed the North Car- ir
Ina authorities seems quite natural,
e is not to be blamed. ei
In pursuance of their promises the rr
essrs. Johnson went over to Char- tl
tte last week and offered the police ir
ere $50 for the possession of Milus. at
lis was the reward that Constable w
hnson had offered. But the Char- tl
tte police turned up their noses at is
e little $50 as payment In full; they w
inted a guarantee also that they tl
ould have a good divide of the re- ol
vard money that Constable Johnson
vas to receive in the event of Milus's
:onviction. -In other words they not
>nly wanted the $50 to which they
iid not have a shadow of a righteous
:ialm: but they wanted a share of
he pay that the Johnsons might revive
for ail the hard work they had
jeen doing.
It has been represented too, that the
ifork county authorities are after Mius
Partlow; but that is not true.
>Vhen Sheriff Brown was asked iboutl
he matter last Saturday he app^red
o be very much disgusted. "No, we
io not want him. If it had not t>en
or that attempted train wreckng
:harge, we would have given him a
ound for horse stealing and on s<v>ral
other charges; but in view of 4s
irrest In North Carolina on a chare
vhlch In the event of conviction, w.i
lo him for a while, we have not bee
noving. But what the North Caro
ina authorities mean I cannot under
itand. The Gaston officials have a
variant, and they are entitled to get
llm.j It seefns to me that the sheriff
)f Mecklenburg must be afraid of the
lolltlcal Influence of the Charlotte poIce,
else he would surrender Mllus to
Gaston at once. I'll bet you that if
ve had a similar situation In this
Hate and another county had a prlsmer
that belonged to me and the sherff
refused to give him up I would
ihow them something, and that
nighty quick. I would get a judicial
>rder for that prisoner and take him
o my jail."
Under the conditions of the rewtrds
>ffered for Mllus Partlow, Constible
Tohnson cannot get anything f?i all
he labor and expense to which h? has
>een subjected unless Mllus Iscondcted.
The Charlotte police hate no
ivldence on which they can ccivlct
he negro, and they cannot get mch
vldence except through S. N. .?hnlon
and his son. Because Mr. . N.
rohnson and his son will not cklde
he fruits of their labors wltlthe
Charlotte police who have done dso- j
utely nothing but become the ccl- ]
lental custodians of the person othe ]
nan who Is wanted, the Charlottpo- <
Ice Intimate that they propa to ,
lave their man sent' to the chalfang (
>n some other charge. There Isome t

THE YORKVILLE CREAM*.
At the beginning of this yeal913 ? '
re desire to call the especial alntlon^

[tltutlon that promises especl
particular benefit to all of ftro.iK M
hey will only do their full duty by It
ind make It an especial and partlcuar
fact. We refer to the Yorkvllle
'reamery.
We do not want anybody to get the
dea that we are asking for charity or
uggesting charity;, because we are
tot thinking of this subject on any
uch basis. Our sole reason for callng
especial and particular attention
o the creamery in this way at this
Ime Is because we feel assured that
he institution promises so much for
rood and that If everybody interested
lirectly and indirectly will do their
ull duty by it, the opportunity for
rood will be so much the greater.
T? la a well known and nrettv well I
