Another chapter in the Anderson slave system has been brought to the attention of Governor McSweeney, in Columbia. Pierce Harmon, colored lias lodged his complaint with an attorney and will bring suit against the state or convict managers for damages for taise arrest. The story of Harmon i.i uuà light to the Anderson scandal and will prove the rottenness- of the system. Harmon early in 1897 was convicted in Lexington county for a minor of fense and given a sentence of twelve months in the state penitentiary. Bill Neal was superintendent at the time, and just before the negro's term ex pired he was shipped to Anderson and lodged in "Quint" Hammond's stock ade. Harmon kept tali on his time and when his term was finished he asked for his release. He swears, however, that he got :a kick for the request and was told, moreover that he would be shot if lie made any at tempt to escape. For months the negro continued to work. Work was passed down the line for the guards to Keep a close eye on the negro, but he found the oppor tunity and did escape. Without wait ing to get his clothes, he walked 200 miles to his home in Lexington and joined his family. In the bosom of his family, however, t.armon says he was not safe from the slave dealers, for private officers got on his trail, followed him home and subsequently seized him. He was hauled back to the Anderson den, shackled and garbed again in the stripes of a felon. • Harmon further declared that he was lashed for having escaped. The negro went back to work and gave up all hope of ever gaining his freedom. After the action of the grand jury, and with the charge from Judge Ben net, the stockade managers got fright ened and released a score of negroes who had been illegally held. Harmon was among the number. He thinks that in justice to himself he should be paid for the time he served as a bondman. It is reported in An derson that a traveler from Tennessee had sold three wagons, three mules and three negroes to the manager of a private pen. The charges are being investigated by the grand jury.

THE BEE MAN ABROAD He Has a Roving Commis sion To PROCURE SUBSCRIBERS And Locate a Duck Pond For Billy Mulaney and John Listle. The Latter a Hard Job. O'Brien's Camp, March 11.—Your corespondent left Kalispell Saturday morning on the hurricane deck of a eayuse, with what one might call a roving commission, with instructions to secure subscribers for the Kalis pell Bee, and, as a side issue, to lo cate a duck pond for John Listle and A lderman-Sheep-Commissioner Billy Mullaney. The first part of my du ties is easy enough as I am meeting with the usual success that attends all efforts of the Bee. Every one is glad that we have a live up-to-date newspaper in'tiie valley and say it is just what they want. The duck pond proposition is a hard one, not but that there are plenty of ponds just now. but it is difficult to find one where a man can sneak up and kill them with a club. Of course Listle and Mul laney will indignantly deny they ever do anything of that kind, but if the truth were known 1 believe they would like to take advantage of a duck us soon as any one. However, if' 1 find a suitable place 1 will stake out a few young birds for them. They might be good enough to send me a feather. My first stopping place outside of Kalispell was at the ranch of T. I.. Widdowson, one of the substantial farmers and dairymen of the valley. Mr. Widdowson . last year, sold 3,400 pounds of butter and 220 gallons of cream. He is a breeder of thor ough bred Chester White hogs, and also lias a herd of 34 Angora goats. He clipped 4 1-2 pounds of wool from each goat last fall, for which he re ceived 27 cents a pound. The next place visited was the old Patries ranch. This place was re cently purchased by Mr. Charles Con ger. from lllair, Nebraska. Mr. Con ger is a desirable addition to Flat head valley. He brought five head of thoroughbred Jersey and Durham cat tle with him. The Durham is a Willie Boy, and looks as though he would take a prize at a state fair. Just over tlie hill is beautiful Wild wood. the home of Mrs. Emma A. Ingalls. The place is rightfully named, as it is one of the pleasantest spots in the valley. Mrs. Ingalls is an enthusiastic fruit grower. She has an orchard of ten acres now and will put 1.000 more trees this spring. Mr. E. A. Gibbons, who lives about a mile south of Wildwood has a nice location with 300 growing fruit trees and expects to set out 200 more this spring. I found Mr. Gibbons busily engaged building an addition to his house. A short ride then brought me to the hospitable home of Mr. R. J. Ball, wnere the latch string is always out. Mr. Ball as one of the best ranches in thi> valley and also deals in thor oughbred Jersey cattle. The next stopping place was at Mr. D. .1. Lambert's, one of the earliest settlers in the valley. Mr. Lambert lias 320 acres of land with a nice or chard and will put in about 100 acres of wheat and oats this spring. He also has the old cabin in which the first school was held in the valley 17 years ago. Not far from Mr. Lambert's I found Mr. Frank W. Bixby, a new arrival from Wisconsin. Mr. Bixby is a young man with a nifce family, including two bright little children. He is just fln isinga new house and will be very comfortably located in a short time. Mr. Bixby brought nine head of thor oughbred Durham cattle from Wiscon sin. 1 am still headed for the south but if this rainy weather keeps up I may get stuck in a mud hole. S. L. W.
