? Newberry special of July 8, to Columbia State: J. P. Lawson, who has become well known here through his dealing In "near beer." was arrested this afternoon by Sheriff Buford charged with dealing in alcoholic beverages. He was released under bond of $300. It is said Lawson will resume hi3 business and in that case Sheriff Buford says he will arrest him again. Lawson first began his "near beer" business In the town of Newberry but when the % council fixed the license for such a venture at $1,500 he retired just outside the city limits. June the 20th he secured a .temporary injunction from Judge Clary at Abbeville restraining _ the officers from interfering with him. The order was returnable at Laurens today but was postponed until Friday. It Is understood that the sheriff conferred with the solicitor and the governor and secured affidavits to the effect that the beverage sold will - intoxicate. A bottle of the "near beer" was sent to Columbia for ex.-Inotlnn Kilt t h A ronlllt Of the PXatD" ination is not known yet. ? Bennettsville special of July 6. to News and Courier: Joe Malloy was ^ found guilty of the murder of Prentiss Moore tonight. The case was given to the Jury at 4.45 this afternoon and the verdict was returned at 9 o'clock. Judge Spain sentenced Malloy to be electrocuted August 9. The defendant made a motion in arrest of judgement and asked for a new trial. The main point raised is that the act of 1912, providing electrocution and abolishing death by hanging, is expost facto as to crime committed in 1910. Judge Spain overruled the motions, saying that in the absence of a case in this state on the specified point the question was doubtful, and he would follow the rule and construe the act A in favor of its constitutionality and alm low the higher court to settle it. Malloy was ably defended by Stevenson. Stevenson & Prince. W. F. Stevenson, Esq, made perhaps the most masterful argument before the jury that has beer\ heard in years in a criminal court in this county. Solicitor Spears olosed for the state in a strong speech and telling appeal. T. I. Roggers covered the facts in a speech of one hour and thirty minuteB for the state. The case will be taken to the supreme court of the state and, if judgment is sustained, will doubtless be taken to the United States Supreme Court. ? The Chesterfield correspondent of the News and Courier, writing under date of last Saturday says there were about 300 people present at the meeting on that day for candidates for the United States house and senate Nothing out of the ordinary devt ^ped as between Cols. Talbert and D-iL The correspondent goes on to say: "About the only spice injected into the meeting today came from two of the candidates for congress. Mr. G. W. Ragsdale, who is one of Representative D. E. Finley's opponents, who besides advocating the policy of rotation in office, at tacked Mr. Flnley for supporting the Bristow amendment to the measure providing for direct election of United # States senators, the alleged objectionable amendment placing control of such elections with the Federal government, Mr. Ragsdale also thought the incumbent had held office long enough and should give way for another. Mr. Flnley presented a spirited de* fense of his vote In favor of the Bristow amendment, which explanation appeared to satisfy the audience. He called attention to his work In the lower chamber of congress and made special reference to the high places he has reached on house committees. Mr. Finly did not agree with his opponent that because he has held the office a number of years he should now step down, but argued that the longer a competent man was ke'pt In the place the more useful he would become to his constituents. W. P. Pollock, Esq., the third candidate for congress, was not present, having accepted an invitation to deliver an address in Kershaw courtly ty today." ? Greenville News: Greenville has been chosen as headquarters for the dairy work of Clemson college, and Mr. R. H. Mason, of the United States department of agriculture, dairy division, is here now looking for a home. As soon as he succeeds in finding one he will bring his family here, and then ^ proceed to conduct the dairy work for the state of South Carolina from this city. Mr. Mason will devote the greater portion of his time during the summer months to instructing dairymen throughout the state In the building of silos. This is the time of year for the building of silos, and hence Mr. Mason ? will turn his attention more to this than any other branch of the work for the next few months. As is generally known, the United States department of agriculture has sent experts In various branches of agricultural work to this state to instruct the farmers in various lines of their calling. Prof. C. B. Haddon, who Is very well known to Greenville county people, is one of these experts, and Prof. Mason is the other. Prof. Haddon has charge of the A Boys Corn Club and the Girls Tomato Club work of the state. He goes about from place to place in South Carolina giving instructions in the planting of corn and the raising of tomatoes. Prof. Mason will give instruction in dairying. These experts, as is generally known, work in conjunction with the authorities of Clemson college. Mr. Mason will make his headquarters In Greenville rather than at Clemson college because he finds that he can get out over the state and back home again so much easier than from any other point. His coming to Greenville will bt? a source of gratification to those interested in the general development ^ of the community. It will be of benefit to Greenville to be the headquarters of the dairy work of Clemson College. Mr. Mason is originally from Missouri. He has been at Clemson College for about a year, and will move to Greenville r within the next few days. ? News and Courier, Sunday: Governor Cole L. Blease's threat to do his best to fasten upon Charleston a metropolitan police and government by injunction if this city voted for Jones in the coming primary echoed and reechoed over Charleston yesterday. It was in the public mind the great and outstanding feature of the campaign k meeting on Friday night, at which it was made. It was discussed countless times all over the town yesterday, and many were the comments made upon it. These comments were most of them of one tenor. It seemed to be almost a unanimous opini >n mat tne governor had made a gr.-at mistake from the viewpoint of his own Interests when he thus attempted to frighten Charleston into line by snapping the whip over her head. Some Bleaso men, however, when asked their opinion, made light of the matter, stating that they were already Blease supporters and that, therefore, the governor was not threatening them, hut there was noticeable Ion the other hand a feeling of hot resentment mingled with the conviction that such a threat could not but mean the loss of many votes In Charleston to the governor. Governor Blease's threat came at the very end of his speech, and at the end of the meeting itself. It was impossible to judge of its effect upon his hearers, because, in the first place, the meeting broke up immediately af. terwards, and because. In the second place, it Is probable that comparatively few recognized the significance of the threat until they had had a little time to think it over. In point of excitement and sensationalism this feature of the governor's speech was for ^vthe moment overshadowed by his attack upon Mayor Grace, and by the vehApient manner in which he discussed thi* breach between himself and the mayor. What the effect will be cannot tie foretold. Most political prophets seem to be of one mind that Blease made a mistake, that such a threat could not possibly help him here, and will probably cost him votes. Two comments heard yesterday, the one from a Blease man, the other from an anti-Blease man, are interesting and instructive. The Blease man said: "I've been for him ail along. He was not threatening me." The anti-Blease man ^ said: "Charlestonians can't be driven by cracking the whip. When Blease did that, he gave a lot of votes to Jones." I The Pecan in Georgia.?The sale of a 600-acre pecan grove In Mitchell county for $200,000 Indicates how a pecan grove as an Investment Is regarded by those with money to Invest. Pecan growing in south Georgia is of recent date, although the trees have been planted for many years. Of the grove which sold for a small fortune, one-half the trees are bearing, although young. The land on which this grove was planted was worth $25 to $50 per acre. In eight years' time Its value was increased to $333 per acre, or about 900 per cent. From this must be deducted the expense of planting and care, but with the most liberal estimates for these the investment was a splendid one. And those who bought the grove got value since the grove will yield from 75,000 to 100,000 pounds of nuts this season, and this will be more than doubled when all the trees come into bearing. Once in bearing, the pecan tree is fruitful for an indefinite time, being hardy and long lived, and the crop is reasonably certain. Pecan growing is an attractive investment.?Savannah News.

STOPS SCALP ITCH Dandruff and Every Form of Scalp Disease Cured Quick by Zemo. It is simply wonderful how Zemo goes after dandruff. You rub a little of it in with tips of the fingers. It gets right down into the glands, stimulates them, stops the itch, and makes the head fine. No, it isn't sticky! Zemo is a fine, clear, vanishing liquid. You don't have to even wash your hands after using Zemo. And what a wonder It is for eczema, rash, pimples and all skin afflictions. A 25-cent trial bottle at York Drug is guaranteed to stop any skin irritation. Zemo is prepared by E. W. Rose Medicine Co., St. Louis, Mo., and is regularly sold by druggists at 61 a bottle. But to prove what it will do at trifling expense, Zemo is now put up in 25 cent trial bottle?. York Drug Store. Popular Excursion to Richmond, Va., Via Southern Railway, Tuesday, July 16th, 1912.

The following speech was delivered by W. P. Pollock, candidate for congress from the Fifth district at Sharon, York county on July 4: Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: I am happy to be with you today, and in the outset I desire to express to the committee in charge my thanks for their kind invitation to be present here to mingle in pleasant social intercourse with the people and to address this great gathering of South Carolinians. I do not, however, ascribe as their motive?as your motive?any special affection or regard you have for me, because coming as 1 do from the banks of the Great Pee Dee river?nearly a hundred miles to the east of you?and not having lived directly amongst you, you do not know me intimately enough to have any special love or affection for me. Nor do I think that you have invited me here to address you because of any special gift of eloquence that I might possess, or any special reputation I may have as an orator, because I do not lay claim to any great power as a public speaker. I am but a plaint, blunt man who, twenty years ago, without money and without powerful influence to push me | along, took his place in the ranks of the great army of toilers, equipped only with a fair education for which my father and my mother made sacrifices that they could ill afford: and with energy and ambition which the great God of the universe had implanted in my bosom, took up the battle of life. As such I come before you as a candidate for congress, and I take it that your invitation is not to the man Pollock, but to the candidate for Pollock and your committee has indicated by kindly leaving it to me to select my own subject, that a speech on the great political issues of the day would not be in bad taste: but time will not permit a full discussion of all the isues presented. Today is the 136th birthday of the United States of America. Today in this, the greatest country on the face of the earth, a free people are enjoying and celebrating a freeman's liberty that is unknown in any other land under the sun. During that 136 years the population of the United States has increased from two and one half millions of people, to more than ninety millions ?our own state of South Carolina has increased from 150,000 to 1,500,000. The area of the United States has increased from less than one million square miles to more than three million square miles without including Alaska and the islands of the sea. In wealth it has increased from less than seven billions to more than one hundred and seven billions of dollars. In money in circulation it has increased from twenty-six and one half millions to more than three thousand millions of dollars?and in every other respect our country has grown and progressed in a way, and to an extent never dreamed of by the wildest dreamer, until today we feel that we have the best, and the grandest country in the universe; and if our government of that country is not the best on earth, we, its citizenship, have only ourselves to blame, for we have (collectively speaking) the power through the ballot to make it not only the greatest country, but the greatest government on earth. Therefore, my countrymen, I appeal to you to bring out the best, the ablest, the most patriotic of your citizenship and to elect them to represent you in the councils of the state and nation, so that progress may be the watchword and forward may be the order in all that may tend toward the betterment of mankind and ttie advancement of the cause of humanity and God throughout the world. There are many grievances to be corrected and many blessings to be attained in the battle for Civic righteousness, and in attaining our ends we must not be afraid to battle against the evil and turn out the unfaithful servants of the people, even though that unfaithfulness be nothing more than a failure to effectively work in the interest of the people. We.all know the parable of the unfaithful and slothful servant who hid his talent. He did nothing affirmatively wrong, but fearing to lose the talent that had been given him in order that it might multiply, he hid his talent, and on the day of accounting he came back to his master who had intrusted him with it, and was able to pay back only that which he had had, without Interest. You remember the words of the master ?"Thou wicked and slothful servant" ?and how he ordered that the talent which he had be taken from him and given to the one who had made good use of that which had been intrusted to him. To him that hath shall be given, but from him that hath not shall be taken away that which he did have?which means that to him that hath taken advantage of his opportunities and hath used the talent which God gave him shall be given the good things of earth and heaven, but from him that hath failed to use his talfents and to take advantage of his opportunities shall be taken even that whicl) he did have. The world is witnessing this year the most gigantic struggle between the special favor seeking classes on the one side, and the great masses of honest laboring people on the other, that has ever been chronicled by the historians of any age in this country. The Democratic party, to which we of the south belong, has been saying for years that the Republican party was dominated by the great corporate moneyed interests of the land, and that in order to maintain their hold on the throats oT the people and to continue to suck the life blood from the toiling millions they would resort to perjury, to bribery and to thievery, but it remained for those of the Republican party who had some conscience and sense of duty to the masses, to furnish us with the indesputable evidence that our charges were true. When the special interests could not win the flght in the Republican party, they put in motion their now famous steam roller and stole enough delegates to re-nominate Mr. Taft. When negro delegates from the south wavered in their allegiance, they purchased them with money which the special Interests had, under guise of law through a protective tariff filched from the pockets of the American people; when Republican delegates selected by the people of the western states, refused to do the bidding of Republican bosses of the privileged classes the old executive committee, representing the trusts and the interests, turned out the honestly selected delegates and put in the tools and hirelings of Wall street, and then allowed them to sit as a Jury on their own case. This action my friends, has torn the Republican party asunder, and the Democratic party, representing more than nine millions of free American citizens, and backed and supported, as I believe it will be, by three millions of patriotic, independent honest men from the outside, is now on the march, with the people's banner unfurled, to the promised land of equal opportunity for all classes and conditions of men. I would like, my friends, to have the banner of the 212,000 American freemen in the district, placed in my hands in the coming primary election; and then, knowing that the Fifth Congressional District of South Carolina needs no urging to follow the straight and narrow path, I would like to take your banner, the people's banner, God's banner, into those sections of our common country where the light has not yet blazed forth, in order that I might have a man's part in the great American uplift of 1912. This is a time for men? high minded men who their duties know, and know their rights, and knowing dare maintain. The Democratic convention in Baltimore, under the leadership of the greatest and purest of American statesmen, William Jennings Bryan, has selected as the standard bearer of the American Democracy that great popular leader who has sat at the feet of Bryan and learned, after many years of teaching?that great governor of the worst trust ridden state of the Union who has there set up the standard of the people where formerly waved the flag of the special interests?that man who refused to receive the money of plutocracy while fighting the battle of the people?that candidate who refused to accept a nomination at the hands of the privilege seeking classes; that gentleman, scholar and statesman, Woodrow Wilson whose heart beats for humanity and whose whole soul revolts against the oppression of the people by the great combinations of corporate interests, and it behooves the Democracy of every district in America to forget county lines?to forget personal friendships?to forget local fancies and prejudice, and to send to congress able and progressive men who will not be content to secure a new postofflce building here, and to send a package of seed or a grape-vine there, to shake the hand of an old acquaintance somewhere else, but who will be a real representative of not only a county or a district or a state, but of all the free, liberty loving people of America, and who will, in casting the vote and expressing the sentiment of your district, be an able lieutenant in the great battle of the people against privilege and oppression. If I can measure up to that standard, then my friends I would like to represent you. If I can do no more than draw my salary, then it were better for me that I remain with my family in private life, for if I can not measure up to the requirements of the situation I would be but a clog in the wheels of progress. Great issues face, as they have always faced the American people. Capital is arrayed against humanity?corporations and trusts are arrayed against the individual, and the breeder of ail trusts and unfair power is embodied in the tariff. The word tariff comes from the name of a little island or harbor in the Mediterranean sea called Tariffa. There It was, in ancient times that a strong band of pirates made their headquarters and collected from all vessels passing through these waters, a tariff, or sum of money in lieu of seizing the whole vessel and robbing the owners of all they had. It was noai'p mnnw that thev had to Day. rather than be robbed of all they had. And so today the high protective tariff which the Republican party levies upon all goods Imported Into this country Is nothing short of robbing the American people?taking It out of the pockets of all the people and placing It in the pockets of the privileged classes. By this device the government of the United States is annually collecting for the support of the government two hundred and thirty millions of dollars, and at the same time by destroying competition between foreign manufacturers and the trusts of America, is enabling the giunt combinations of capital to collect, not for the government, but for the benefit of these special interests, nine billions of dollars from the toilers of America and put it into the pockets of the few who control the manufacturing interests of the land. The annual out-put of the American factories is twently billions of dollars ?the average tariff levied is 47 per cent, this 47 per cent would aggregate more than nine billions of dollars, but because it is so great foreign manufacturers can not afford to pay it to the government, and the result Is that the trusts of America, annually through the tariff, rob the American people of near nine billions of dollars. The Democratic party stands for the reduction of the tariff to such a point that imports can come in freely?that foreign manufacturers can compete with the domestic manufacturers?that the people?the consumers, can get their supplies with only a reasonable profit added?that the tariff should never be high enough to stop Imports, but only high enough to raise revenue to economically run the government. In this way the masses of the people will never be abnormally poor, and the favored, classes, can never be abnormally rich. It has been said that no country can long endure one half , bound and one half free. I tell you that no country can long endure when one half of ita people are paupers and the other half are abnormally rich. No country can long endure when the masses of the people are toiling for the absolute necessities of life when the favored few are rolling in wealth and living lives of idleness and immorality and ungodliness. No people can be happy without labor, but where their labor yields them only an existence It Is but a cause of discord and unhappiness, and hatred of those who do not labor. The total ordinary disbursements of the United States for last year amounted to more than six hundred and fifty millions of dollars. Of this amount, about 70 per cent was for the war and navy departments, and for the payment of pensions growing out of former wars. In other words, my friends, the idea of war?wars of the past and preparation for wars of the future?Is costing the American people four hundred and thirty-eight millions of dol lars annually, ana mis my inenas is growing every year. This appalling statement of itself, it seems to me, is enough to make a practical, common sense people stop and think; but when we consider that war never settles a controversy according to the justice of the cause?when equity and righteousness have no place in the final termination?when power and force are after all the determining factors in the question, and when the green valleys are painted a rich red with the life blood of thousands and tens of thousands of human beings who are called upon to sacrifice home and family and life on their country's altar, is it not time for us, a great Christian nation, the hope of the world, in the great march of progressive thought- and of civilization to seek about for a way tQ abolish war from the face of the world? Just as fifty years ago, on the old muster field, the biggest man in the eye of young America was the one who could lick any other bully?Just as a few years ago the biggest man wao the one who after a quarrel with his neighbor, could shoot the truest in the duel, just as the result of force settled differences between man and man, so still today the most powerful nation, with the greatest navy and the biggest army and the fullest treasury lords it over the weaker nations of earth, and every big nation feels called upon to be as fully prepared for war that may never come as its strongest competitor for world power. In the great Civil war the Federal government put in the field 2,722,000 men?the Confederate armies numbered about 750,000 men?the Federal government lost about 350,000 men, and the Confederate army lost about 133,000 men. Think also my friends of the other wars of the United States, and of the other nations of the world. Remember that it is to the advantage of every country on earth that the enormous expenses of war, and fearful sacrifice of human life should cease, and I ask you is it hoping for too much when I suggest that this government should take the initiative and try to get the other nations of the earth to Join in a treaty whereby they would agree to submit all their differences to an International Court of Arbitration in which all nations would have a representative except those who might be parties to the controversy?disband their armies except enough to insure domestic tranquility?disarm their navies except to Jointly maintain a navy sufficient to cope with the navy of anyone country which refuses to enter into the compact, and then say to the world "Thou shalt not commit murder."
