Mrs. Miller is said to be resting comfortably. It may bo some [ time, however, in-fore she will be able to attend court. No attempt Iras yet betn made to search for the bullet which penetrated her liver. She has been relieved of the bullet in her neck, j ?

An error of altitude on a I map used for the flight in respect t > ono'of the peaks of the Ozark mountains came near causing disaster Saturday night, according to Major H. A.

Large forces of British troops, with heavy artillery, have landed at strategic points along the Dardanelles, and are throwing up entrenchments in pi-eparation for any eventuality. Cans have been mauc on Australia, New Zealand and other British dominions for troops to as: 1st in \vh itever 'jp-.Tations may become necessary. The Angora government of Kemal Pasha has demanded the return of Thrace and Constantinople to the Turks. The Al- ! lies, including Great Britain, France j and Italy, insist that the Turks shall I not be allowed to resume their domin- | ion over any European territory, except it is the understanding that if the Turks accept the treaty of Sevres in other particulars they may retain Constantinople, on the European shore of the Bosphorus. ? Dispatches indicate serious hitches iri the strike settlement agreement reached in Chicago last Wednesday. Tho understanding was that the various roads were to mak:. their own arrangements with the strikers. It now apears that the Rock Island, Now York Central. Southern and other Dig roads do not understand the agreement as the strikers understand it. The strikers insist that strikebreakers must bo disclai -ged and that he strikers go to work on the r-ame basis as bef re the development of the trouble. ' lie railroad people ere insisting ci. et&Jning the strikebreakers and < nploying the striken* 'as new men. ' he shopmen at Spencer, N. C., refuse to go to work until all strikebreakers have been cleaned out of the shops. The question of seniority is still very much to the fore, ar.d also of unionism generally. ? Potato dumping, writes a London correspondent, is the latest accusation made against Germany by tariff reformers who for some time have been clamoring for the imposition of higher duties against imports from Germany. Not long ago liritish farmers were getting from ? 10 to .? 18 a ton for their potatoes. Now they find them a drug In the market at prices as low as ?2. "The explanation of this f; 11," says one authoi ity, "is wholesale dumping by German and Dutch growers. The German government, before and during the war, stimulated the growth of potatoes in order to provide reserve food and also for the distillation of alcohol. The overplus has been thrown on the British market, the only one Which will admit it without heavy duties, and it has been sold for what it will fetch. As a result the unfortu' nate British farmer is being reduced to something very near despair, and in some cases u refusing to market his crop." ? Henry Ford's industrial strike against what he charges are excessive coal' prices was in full swing Saturday night, and approximately 73,000 of his workers in the Detroit area are out of jobs for an indefinite period. Thousands of others in assembling plants throughout the country .arc also ordered to lay down their tools. In addition a score or more of small industrial concerns dependent upon the Ford Motor company for orders are preparing to close. These employ upwards of 30,000 men. The Highland Park ami ltivcr Rouge plants of the Ford Motor company, employing about 60,000 men, arc deserted save for a comparatively small force that will he retained to keep coke ovens warm. Although many of them were smiling Saturday, the majority of the Ford workers who passed through the gates of the Highland I'ark plant after turning in their tools, expressed concern over the shutdown. Their foremen had handed down to them advice from Mr. Ford to buy as little coal as possible and to cut tljeir living expense to a minimum. Many of the workers were mot by wives and children, cotter to learn ho*.v hunt the heads of families would be unemployed. ? This week is expected to mark the close of the Sixty-seventh congress with adjournment fine die scheduled by next Saturday and sooner if possible. Enrolment of the tariff bill and Jlnal disposition of the soldiers' bonus bill are expected to furnish the principal features of the closing week ot legislation. Other (lean-up measures on the calendar include the administration coal commission legislation. Siberian loan 1)111 and the rivers and barbers development bill end the deficiency appropriation budget. The anti-lynching bill is to be taken up by the senate, but probably will be left over in the face of determined opposition. The atljournmei t plans are dependent upon final action being obtained on the tariff and bonus bills. The former came before the senate again yesterday facing a possible return to conference whi-ii would delay the entire schedule of congress, while I'resident Harding's action on the bonus bill is expected today with immediate efforts in prospect to repass the bill in tlie event ot its veto. \ lrinauy mi oi the inembt rs of congress expeet to so heme for the election mrnpeijjrns immediately Upon adjournment of (impress.

A double murder which bids fair t? take rank with the my..tej*irs of lUnar Alh n J'oe was* revealed at \iw l.rurswiek, X. J.. Saturday afternoon when childn n playin.tr in ;< crew found the bodies of the Itev. Kdwerd W. Hall, 4S. prominent Kpiscopal cli rin iiwn, and Mrs. James .Mills, JX. The bodies la> side by side.

Police are investigating the theory that the pair might have been slain elsewhere and carried to the place where they were found, carefully liial out, under a tree. No pistol or knile was found near the scene. An empty cartridge was found under the minister's body. The minister left his rectory, whore he resided with his wife, on Thursday evening. He has not been seen since, so far as police can ascertain, and it is not known whether his disappearance wus report1 ed to the authorities when he failed to return. Airs.

(The \jovhviUc inquirer. Entered at the Postofflce at York, as Mail Matter of the Second Class. "TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1922. Tho elections having been disposed of, the way is now open for business. | Although business conditions are not as bright as we wouid like, all of us >"'.? cor>n worse. While of course there is no telling, we are inclined to think that the Turkish question will bo settled without serious trouble. ?. I ? B f | For a man who has been several times assassinated according to .eports, Mustapha Kema! Pasha, appears to be very much alive. J ? The man who attends to his own j business most intelligently and most faithfully contributes most to the prosperity and happiness of the community in which he lives. If the Allies had supported Greece against Turkey none of this would have happened, except Greece would have secured possession of Constantinople, her ancient capital, and that would not suited either. Information comes from the White House that the president Intends to veto tlie bonus bill, probably today, and it is doubtful as to whether there are j enough votes in the senate to pass the | bill over the president's veto. It is quite evident that the signing of the bonus hill will disarrange American finances for quite a while; but the disarrangement will not be nearly so embarrassing as it would have been if the service men had failed on their job during the world war. Semi-official declarations are going out from Washington to the effect that the United States is not going to become mixed up in the new international quarrel now b 1x2wing. IJut after all, how can anybody tell. Under proper conditions it is all right to give a convicted man proper show by means of a parole. Hut the parole should not be regarded as a parddn, and in watching up paroled convicts as he is doing Governor Harvey is to be commended. It is exactly the right thing. Rudyard Kipling declares that he did not give Clare Sheridan the interview that she recently cabled to the New York World. There is no reason to believe, however, that he has been misquoted, lie does not deny the vie\tfs imputed to him, and the common understanding is that he merely did not intend that his views should-be published. Although there was hesitation last Saturday on the part of a number of big railroads, including the Southern, to sign the Chicago agreement for the settlement of the strike, the agreement was signed yesterday. Information yesterday was that the men had refused to go back to work so long as the strikebreakers continued on the job, and the outlook was for a prolongation of the trouble. It is the understanding now that everything is settled and normal conditions will be f,o umin *,? tmssihlp. Many prominent Britishers nre insisting that Kipling lias no right t<? speak for Great Britain and that his rxprersed views do not represent British soiitinvnt any nn-re than Mr. IV>o!?v's gib, s :tt Great Britain represent American sentiment. Tlie trutfi f the matter is that Kipling's charges are so ahsui'd on their face that nobody is going to take them striously. England and France did not want the l.'nited States to conic into the war so loi.^ as they had reason to believe tlvy could handle it alone, and when to their surprise, the t'nited Statis.'be.ai. licking th" Germans, England and France wore glad to close the whole matter up as quickl.\ as possible.

The erecent sale for $750,000 of a lot of ships that cost the United States a billion dollars, only goes to emphasize the terrible waste of war. There is no good ground on which to criticise the j building of those ships, notwithstandI in.c mnrd or less thoughtful criticism. At the rate the Germans were destroying ships during the war, there seemed to be no limit to the number of ships America might need. But with the ending of the war so long in advance of the most sanguine expectations of the best informed official judgment, the ships became unnecessary. They are not heeded even for commercial purposes and consequent-; ly the disposition of the ships involves no loss. The loss was incurred with the necessity of building the ships in the first place. The name "sick man" of Europe was first applied to the Turk by Czar Nicholas, of Russia in tlie middle of the last century. Itussia having had designs on Constantinople since the days of Peter the Great, made a confidential proposal to the British ambassador at his court that the two powers administer the estate of the "sick man" and divide the spoils between them. It did not suit Great Britain that Russia should get possession of -.... nn..? ?r Tm-L-ov nrid the nrotjosition nnj i?w. i i .. ... was refused. The Crimean war in which Great Britain, France, Turkey and some of the then independent Balkan people fought Russia, followed a few years afterward. There is but little question of the fact that it is Russia that.is now urging Turkey on against the. powers with promises of assistance and that Russia is still looking forward to the control of Constantinople. Frequent references in the papers to the probability of the development of a "holy war," calls for just a little historical information for the benefit of those who do not seem to be up on the subject. The Islamic religion was founded by the sword, and at the end of the'strictly religious campaigning the flag of the prophet Mohamet remained in the custody of the Turkish empire as the greatest Mohammedan state. It is a tradition of the faith that whenever the faith is endangered all true Mohammedans must rally to the flag with their all. The promise is that any man who loses his life in defense of the flag is immediately translated to paradise. It is believed that if war develops over the dispute as to ! rtrvnoloniinanlo f hp ine possissioa ui v/v.iou>.iU,?,..v flap- of the prophet, will be unfurled anil this will bo a call to nil the Mohammedan world, including: about .100,000,000 people, to come to the colons. Statements given out from Washington flatly deny the truth of Rudyard Kipling's assertion that America "forced the Allies into making peace at the first opportunity instead of finishing it at Berlin." Records of the Allied council in Paris are to the effect that President Wilson declined to make any suggestions with regard to the armistice other than that the matter should be left to the judgment of those in charge of the military situation. Sir Douglass Hrig, in command of the British armies was willing for anything that would put a stop to the fighting. General Petain, speaking for France, proposed that the Germans 41 T ........ i nr. iind in. give UI? v iuiu - _ turn immediately to Germany with only swords and rifles, giving up their puns and at the same time 5,000 locomotives and 100,000 ears. Gen. IJliss representing the United States proposed that the armistice results be comprehended in two propositions, to-wit: complete disarmament and completo demobilization. The armistice terms were bused finally or. the Petain proposition. General Pershing pave liis preference for th? complete overrunning of the Germans; but was willing to agree to whatever the other would. Campaign Expenses. Amongst those who are familiar with the facts, and who have given consideration to the matter, there is a very common feeling that there is room f a I improvement in the existing method of raising funds for the conduct of the Democratic primary campaigns. The primary campaign just closed cost the Democratic party of the county close to $1,300, and that sum was hardly adequate for reasonable compensation for all the service performed. Tlie only reason that the cost of the I campaign was limited to around $1,300 was that that was all the money available; but even at that there was a great deal of gratuitous service that was as much entitled to fair compen:i? iiiivthimr else that was com pensated. The money guts to pay for election booths, per iliem of managers of election, stationery, postage, printing, advertising, etc., and then besides there is a whole lot of gratis work by the executive commit t oemon. In the old days most of the work that is now paid for was done gratis. The managers of election received no pay, the executive committeemen received no pay. and uuite a lot of other services were rendered without cost. All that seemed mighty generous on the part of those who were working for nothing; hut it was not right. The folks who perform service s over and above the services performed by other people are entitled to compensation, of course. But nnothet thing that don't look right about it is that the candidates should be required to foot all the bills. There may be some reason, though not much in collecting the expenses from the successful candidates; but what about the candidates who are unsuccessful? There Is certainly no reason why they should be asked to foot any additional bills. Seems to us that thero should be some better way of raising the money for a primary campaign. It is unquestionably us much the business of the voter as it is the candidate, and why slwjuld not the voter submit tp a small assessment? The qxpense of this lart campaign came very nearly averaging -5 cents for each ballot cast. Would the voter .?? nuui'ssmnnt likn that? If I not, why not? Hut i>erh:ips a better way would be to provide the whole expense by appropriation. The election is conducted throughout under statutory stipulations, then why not provide the expenses by statute? It is certainly not right that the candidates should bear all these expenses. Biennial Sessions. The idea of biennial sessions of the general assembly and four, year terms of of/ice appeals to The Yorkville Enquirer. Hut The Yorkville Enquirer does not agree to the desirability of making an oflicer ineligible to re-election after four or six years of service.. That even a good officer can be kept in office too long is admitted; but the advisability of an arbitrary limit to the term of service is doubtful. The sometimes claim that the inmnntmrit is the onlv uerson capable of tilling the place is absurd. When it comes to the point where there is only one man capable of filling an office properly, that office might very well be abolished. However, it does sometimes happens that there is no material in sight more available than the incumbent, and under such circumstances it is very well to leave the people free to keep what they have. But experience seems to have proved that once-a-year meetings of the general assembly are too frequent, and that the l>est interest of tho state would be subserved by less frequent meetings. For one thing, it is just as easy to arrange for the conduct of the government for two years as it is for one year, and for another tiling each other your meetings of the general assembly would seem to facilitate more mature consideration of such emergencies as might arise in the meantime. Near Eastern Question. There is a good deal of talk of the immincence of another war over what [ is commonly understood as the near eastern question, and although it is very well to recognize that war is within the easy range of possibility, it is probable that adjustment will be effected without serious consequences. As a matter of fact there is nothing new in the situation. The natural gateway between Asia and Europe, or the cast and west, for considerably more than two thousands years, Constantinople is strategically the most important city of the world. Here was established the first great world centre of Christianity and here for a thousand years has existed the great world centro of Mohammedanism. Hut as important as Constantinople is and has been as a religious j ce ntre, uns nas peon ui suuui wubc- . ciucnce compared with its military and com mere i a 1 i m por tancc. Military control of the Dardanelles and Bosphorus from the Mediterranean into the Itlack sea means political and commercial control of Asia Minor and Southern Russia as well us a good portion of central Asia, and hence the keen interest of Englahd, France, Russia and Italy in the situation. The recent treaty of Sevres sought J to internationalize Constantinople and the passage between the Mediterranean and Black seas under British domination and to deprive tlie Turks of all dominion over any European land. Practically the' sole idea in view was to insure against the future closing of the Dardanelles and Bosphorus against European nations. The war between Turkey and Greece grew out of the fact that neither was satisfied with their treatment under the treaty of Sevres. Each claimed I territory that the treaty had awarded to the other, and both revolting from their constituted authorities, the Greeks under Constantino and the Turks under Mustapha Kamal Pasha undertook to tight it out. with the results that have been culminating within the past few days. rnK" Knon oil hilt POm - I I IK- VII CtllD liaiu ./v \ ~ i c UII ?-v pletely crushed and the victorious Turks with the full support of the. Russians seem to he of the belief that all they have to do is to push ahead and take hack all that had been taken away from them. It is reasonably certain that England, France and Italy will not stand for a Constantinople under other than their own control and neither will the Balkan people but recently released from Turkish thralldom be willing1 to go back under such a palling yoke. Dominant Russian influences in the control of the Dardanelles would be intolerable to England which in times past lias shed rivers of blood in tireventing just such a development and that the Turks should he allowed to make good their threats of maintaining their old empire without stirring up the whole of Europe on one side or the other. . m ?

It is a common expectation that the shutting down of tho Ford, plants will increase the prices on Ford cars new and old. There has been quite a lot of liquidation of old debts within the past few weeks to the very great relief of both debtors and creditors. Failure to pay the dog license tax of $1.25 now carries a penalty cf a $5 fine, or five days on the chalngang. The dog license tax becomes due October 15. and all dogs that will be six months old or older on January 1 next will be liable. Over 4,000 dog licence taxes were paid last year. While here yesterday Governor Harvey made joking reference to the $10 fine that was exacted of him for that little scrap in the courthouse two years ago. It will be remembered that he ana Air. Aiauiaen, uis men camp to blows over a question of veracity, and each was required to put up $10 lor their appearance. Of course neither appeared and the money was turned into the treasury. The governor has never been reconciled to the idea that the fine should have been exacted of him; hut assuming that it has helped to build the roads and the new school house, as well as pave the streets, he concedes that it has been well spent. But seriously there are those who think that the collection of those lines ^ore hardly warranted under all the cireumstunces and about the best way to make it right is for the town to return the money with proper apology.

RELIEF FOR SUFFERERS There is a probability that those farmers living several miles west of Yorkville whose crops were badly damaged by a hailstorm several weeks ago may. try to obtain exemption from taxes. Farmers of the devastated area who were m Yorkville yesterday said that there was talk to that effect among some of their neighbors and friends. They take the position that the damage that they suffered by hail was fully as great as the damage suffered by Bethel township farmers and others in a hailstorm several years ago and that since tax exemption for the year was granted these others there is an equal reason why they ? I.i ),? cimr. ririvilpcre. mi'mini ciijuj ni?- u.v.i.v r -c ? It is said that there are a number of farmers in the stricken section who will make well nigh no cotton and corn this fall. One farmer who has been making fifty or sixty bales of cotton each year for a number of years past said thai he estimated he might pet enough cotton to pay for the fertilizer that lie used. There are some who do not think it will prove profitable to try to puttier the little crop that is left to them. While no definite steps have been taken looking to exemption from taxes it would not be surprising if the suffering farmers do attempt to obtain such, relief. ABOUT PEOPLE.

A number of local foot ball enthusiasts plan to go to Clemson College on September 30, to see the game between Clemson and Center College. Considerable local interest attaches in the Clemson team this year by reason of the fact that "lied" Gettys of Tirzuh, is assisting in coaching the Clemson Tigers and Floyd Wray, of Yorkville is playing right end on the Clemson team.
