And That Woodrow Wilson is the Man to Lead Them to Victor}' in Its Coming Campaign. The Fortnightly Review, the lead ing review of London has an article in the- August number just received here under the captloa "Some talks with Roosevelt." by Sidney Brooks, who spent some time In the United States and visited all sections of the country In an effort to j;uage the pol itical situation as It stands today and as to the trend of the Immediate fu ture. In the course of the article, 'Mr. Brooks -writes: The Democrats, so 'ar as I can judge, are right if feeling that the tide is at last with them, and that only some abnormal development can forestall a Democratic victory in 1912. The question, therefore, of the candidate they put forward has an importance that it has lacked for the past twelve years; and that nat* urally, when the choke of a stan dard bearer is regarded as an almost tantamount to his election, there is an extra keenness to se ure the nom ination. Mr. Bryan feels that he ought to have it, but he knows that he cannot get it. At the same time his power for obstruction at any rate, remains considerable and any man whom he openly opposes may have a hard fight to win the convention. Such a man is governor Harmon, ol Ohio, an en gaging popular and successful govern or, but an ex-member of Mr. Cleve land's cabinet and the very type ot that straight laced more conservative school that Mr. Cleveland represent ed and that Mr. Bryar. has always warred on implacably. To compass the defeat of Governor Harmon's candidacy may, I think, be said for the moment to be the chief aim of Mr. Bryan's political exis tence. To do it he will have to es pouse the nomination of some other leader; and there are at present only two other men in the democratic ranks- whom the average American can be brought to regard as presiden tial possibilities. One of these is Mr. Champ Clarke, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, who is leading the party in congress with, unmistakable masterfulness and ef fect, but whose reputation so far is other congressional than national. The other is Mr. Woodrow Wilson, the ex-president of Princeton Uni versity, who was elected last Novem ber of the governorship of New Jer sey, and who, in the past six months has worked hardly less than a revo lution in the politics of his state. My view is that Mr. Wilson decidedly is ahead of all of his competitors and that -his union of practicality, elo quence, fearlessly, and a high dis passionate and thoughtful sincerity have not only profound .y impressed the country, but mark bim as a man who is destined to lead his party out of the wilderness. All present appear ances point to his adoption next year as the democratic candidate. Further along Mr. Brooks says that "On pretty nearly every impor tant issue Mr. Roosevelt, I should judge, is in closer sympathy with Mr. Wilson than with Mr. Taft." How ever he thinks party layolty will keep Mr. Roosevelt in i:he Republi can ranks, but adds: Mr. Roosevelt's friends, however, being less committed by past respon sibilities, are freer to do as they think best; and in the event of Mr. Wilson being brought forward as the democratic nominee. I am convinced that many thousands of Republicans and among them, those who were and are. and will remain Mr. Roosevelt's most ardent followers, would vote for him in preference to Mr. Taft, even though the president himself were to sacrifice his personal predi lections to his sense of party loyalty." GIRL SHOT tS FOOT. Pistol Accidentally Shoots When it Dropped to the Floor.

I ORANGEBURG ?ssassiu'ii Sollet Proves Fatal to Sioiy piD, Rassian Premier THE CZAR SAW HIM SHOT The Assassination Took Place at a Theatre Thursday Evening of Last Week,?Dimitri Bogroff, a Young Man, Fired the Fatal Shot in the , Presence of Thousands. The Russian premier, Peter A. Stolypin, died Monday night' from bullet -"wounds received at the hands of Dimitri Bogroff, an assassin,-dar ing a gala performance at the muni cipal theatre Thursday evening of last week at Kiev, Russia. Almost until the last the premier was conscious and for half an hour during the early part of the evening his wife alone was at his bedside. Frequently he called" Give me the letter. Take It away. Give me a red pencil. Lift me. Light up." Premature reports of the premier's death were current for hours before it occurred. Several missions and embassies were misled by the reports and notified their governments. The authorities at first decided to con ceal the news of the preimer's death until morning fearing anti-Jewish outbreaks. This was found to be- im possible and after the annouucement was made all the attention of the authorties was centred in the pro tection of the Jews. Residents of the Jewish community were panic stricken and begged for protection and 30,000 troops were poured into Kley to prevent excesses. M. Kokovosoff, minister of finance, who was appointed acting premier after M. Stolypin was shot, has sent a premtory circular to the various governors on the maintenance of or der. Gov. Gen. Trepof:! has Issued a pub lie notice that disorders will not be tolerated and stringent regulations are published forbidding the carry ing of arms. It is officially announc ec that the manoeuvers are ended and that the troops are returning to Kiev. Outgoing trains are crowded and double-"tralns and e"vra trains are leaving Kiev every h' ^r. Hun dreds of well-to-do Jews are depart ing from Kiev. Pe.ter A. Stolypin was a tall, hand some man of 55 years. His short cropped hair was gray, but his beard was dark. He has been described generally as an administrator of abil ity. He was neither a bureaucrat or a reactionary In the ordinary sense of those terms and has been said to have been imbued with Liberalism, but determined to put down the revo lutionary movements at any cost. As governor of Saratov he took such steps against the terrorist and Liberals alike as won him the de testation of the advanced parties, and his life was attempted in 1905. He was appointed premier by imperial ukase on July 22, 1906. and stamped out the revolution that had been growing to threatening propotions during the premeirship of M. Whitte and which Witte's successor, M. Gor emykin, had not been able to control. Stolypin's life was attempted In August of that year when a bomb that killed 00 persons was exploded at his home. The minister escaped with slight injuries, but two of his children were wounded. As minis ter of interior M. Stolypin came into office with the duma and when he made his first speech before that body he was greeted with cries of "mur derer." The opposition's hatred of M. Stoly pin reached a crisis last March, when, the upper chamber of the du ma having rejected his bill for the establishment Zemstvo or local gov ernment in the western provinces the premier resigned, and only consented to resume office when the emperor a greed to disolve the duma and pro mulgate the measure under the au thority of the fundamental laws.

CM Kills Her Father and Shoots Sheriff and Two Others. George Marshall, a negro said to have gone to W?rrenton, N. ft, from the North, Monday afternoon crimi nally assaulted the wife of a farmer at Vlcksboro, 14 miles from Warren ton, killed her father who attempt ed to rescue his daughter, and later shot the sheriff and two members of his posse after the negro had escaped from the scene of^the assault upon the woman. A lyv hing is probable. The negro barrl/aded himself in a house. When the^heriff came to ar rest him the negrc shot him and two other members of the posse. This morning, after the house had been watched all night, the negro's father by a ruse entered the house with other negroes and overpowered him, when the posse rushed In, bound him and brought him here to jail. The whole of two counties is aroused over the atrocious deed. Court convenes at Warrenton this week and the authorities are trying to induce the angry citizens to let the law take its course, promising that the negro will be tried at once. Marshall's victim was 22 years old. She was on her way zo the spring when accosted by the negro who cov ered her with the gun until he had accomplished his purpose. Another Case in Florida. Cicero Carpenter, a carpenter, and a woman companion, whom he was accompanying home was criminally assaulted by an unknown negro at Ortego, a suburb of Jacksonville, Fla., early Monday morning. The white couple had taken the last car home and were accosted by the negro about half a mile from the car line. Without preliminaries the negro fired point blank at Thomp son, killing him Instantly, one bullet going through the brain and the sec ond near the Inart. The woman stood terror-stricken and was next attacked by the negro, who choked her to unconscious before accom plishing his fiendish deed. The locality where the deed was committed is sparsely settled, and no one heard the shots or screams. The woman finally regained conscious ness, and sought out some neighbors, when the alarm was turned in. Im mediately a posse was formed, and the woods in the vicinity have been scoured without result. It is feared that lynching will follow an arrest, unless the authorities can spirit the negro to jail without giving the alarm. PEOPLE ALMOST DROWN. Five Million Gallons of Molasses Run in the Streets. The sweetest thing that ever hap pened in New Orleans, La., occurred this week when tanks containing 5,-1 000,000 gallons of molasses burst in the warehouse of the Planters' Stor age Company. Part of the commer cial district was flooded with a stream of molasses so deep that many persons had narrow escapes from drowning in the sticky stuff. The people in the street adjoining the burst tanks had to wade through molasses up to their waists, or even to their chins in some instances. Sev persons tried to swim in the molasses but it was like the antics of a fly on gummy fly paper, and they had to be rescued. To repair the breaks in the tanks it was necessarry to row boats into the warehouse on the surface of the sticky flood. The loss is estimated at $200,000. ARMY OFFICER DISAPPEARED. 1 Lieut. Lj'kcs, a South Carolinian, Leaves Fort Russell. Another mystery has developed in the United States military service with the disappearance from his post at Fort D. A. Russell, Wyoming, of Lieut. Gibbes Lykes, an officer of Troof F, 9th Cavalry, stationed at that place. Notices have been spread broadcast through army channels notifying all posts of the young offi cer's disappearance, and it is hoped that information of his whereabouts will soon be received. He departed from the post some time ago without, leaving word of his intended destina tion. Lieut.

Id Streets of Vienna ard Several Pco soqs Were Killed or Hart AN ALARMING* SITUATION Revolutionary Cheers Are Heard on All Sides.?The Outbreak Follows Months of Discontent Over the High Cost of Living, Which Bears Heavy on the Poorer Classes. A critical situation has arisen in Vienna, Austria, owing primarily to the high price of the necessaries of life. Riots broke out Monday, and sev eral persons were killed or wounded. Troops fired on the mob which had erected barricades in the streets. There was a fierce exchange of bul lets, and the soldiers were pelted with all sorts of missiles. Follow ing a huge Socialist demonstration Monday afternoon outside the Rath haus, held to protest against the high price of food, it became necessary to call out troops to disperse the rioters. In the early clashes fifty of the rioters were wounded and 100 were arrested. Fifty thousand persons were present at the demonstration, and fiery speeches were made, de manding that the government per mit the importation of foreign meat and take other measures to remedy the conditions which have resulted from the prohibitory increase in the price of food products. After the close of the meeting a large proces sion marched to the parliament buildings, cheering for revolution and Portugal. Revolvers were fired in the air, and then the mob began stone throw ing. The windows of many public and private buildings, restaurants and tram cars and street lamps were smashed. Finally a squadron of dra goons and a detatchment of infantry appeared on the scene. Tbey charg ed the rioters and dispersed them. The mobs reassembled, however, In the suburbs, which are occupied by the working class, where they wrecked much property. The troops were retained throughout the day guardiL'.g the imperial palace and gov ernment buildings and holding op prcaches to the inner city. Toward evening' the rioting in the Ottakring quarter became more fur ious. The mob demolished r".* *ho street lamps in the main thorough fare, plunging the streets into dark ness. They erected barricades and hurled missiles of various kinds on the soldiers from the upper windows of houses. The order was at length given to the troops to fire. At the first volley many rioters fell, either killed or wounded Several of the soldiers and police men were Iljured, and 100 more of those engaged in the conflict were placed under arrest. The agitation is the culmination of months of bit ter discontent over the steady in crease of the cost of living, and un less parliament takes action it is feared that the developments of the disturbances will be very serious. The rioting was of a most deter mined and savage character. Al though an opposite account states that only one person was killed by a bayonet thrust and several wounded slightly, it is believed the casualties are much higher. The appearance of the troops in tensified the wrath of the rioters, who shouted: "We want no military! We want bread!" Stone throwing became incessant and clashes between the police and the mob. with cavalry charges, con tinued throughout the afternoon. Besides smashing windows in all directions, the mob completely de molished a cafe. At the height of the disorder the Socialists leader, David, tried to calm the crowd, but an infuriated mob set upon him and beat him into unconsciousness. He was removed to a hospital. All available cavalry were brought cut to line the streets and protect the public buildings. The rioting in the Ottakring quar ter was still more serious. Tram cars were overturned and shops wrecked. The mob forced its way in to a school house and dragged forth all the furniture into the street and burned it. The troops were obliged twice to fire into the crowd and many rioters fell bleeding to the ground. It. was near midnight before a sem blance of order was restored. There are fears of a renewal of the riot. Killed .Many Fish. Millions of shrimp and fish were killed in a lake near New Orleans as a result of a diet of molasses which found its way into the Lake from the city sewers when GOO,000 gallons were recently let loose in the streets where a storage tank burst.

Yachts and small boats were wrecked. Wants the Place. Judge George E. Prince Monday announced that he would be a candi date for Associate Justice before the General Assembly in January. DEATH IN THE MINES THIRTY THOUSAND KILLED IN THE LAST TEN YEARS. Great Meeting to Be Held in October to Devise Some Plan to .Make the Mines More Safe. Thirty thousand miners killed in the United States in the last ten years! 'Seventy-fivo thousand miners in jured, many of them maiaied for life, in the same period. Eleven thousand widows made by the deaths of the miners! Thirty thousand children left fath erless! This terrible record represent not only the accidents in the coal mines but also the metal mines. It is the story of the tragedy of i the mines, but not the whole story. If the mines of the United States in those ten years had had the same standards of safety as in the Euro pean countries; if the United States had killed two in every 1,000 em ployed, instead of three, four or five. Fifteen thousand of the thirty thousand American miners killed might be living today. Forty thousand out of the seventy five thousand injured might have es caped injury. Five thousand five hundred wid ows might not have been widows. Fifteen thousand orphan children might still have fathers. This is the whole grim tragedy of the mines epitomized. It is one of the most serious problems of the country and the one that brought the Federal Bureau of Mines into being. It is the great problem that the Bureau of Mines, under the leader ship of Dr. Joseph A. Holmes, its director, is attempting to solve. This problem is responsible for the great national Mine Safety Demon stration which is to be held in Pitts burg, Pa., October 30 asd 31, ur.uer the auspices of the Bureau of Mines, the American Red Cross, the United Mine Workers of America, and the Pittsburg Coal Operators Association: From 30,000 to 50,000 miners, sup erintendents and operators are ex pected to be present.

WAN! TO HANG Hyde, Who Killed His Wife ard Htr Fa ther, Convicted tf M?rder VERDICT PLEASES BISS He Would Not Employ a Lawyer to Defend Him.?Says the Verdict la a Just One and He Will Be the Happiest Man That Has Ever Paid The Death Penalty. Samuel N. Hyde, confessed mur derer of his young wife and her fath er, was convicted by a jury late Tues day at Anderson and sentenced to be hanged. The death sentence was pronounced by Judge Prince Wednes day morning. The reading of the verdict had no .visible effect on the prisoner, who said later that the findr ing was a just one, that he was quil ty of murder and expected to be con victed. Under the laws of South Car olina, pleas of guilty in murder cases are forbidden. The crime for which Hyde was convicted was committed on the night of July 18th last at Anderson. While Mrs. Hyde and her sister, Wil lie Beasley, aged 15, lay asleep in one bed, and her parents, W. V. Beas ley and wife, were asleep in another bed in the same room, Hyde entered and fired three shots into his wife's body, killing her instantly, and fired twice at ,her sister, both shots taking effect, but not seriously wounding her. Reloading his revolver, he Ehot and killed Beasley, who was attempt ing to disarm him. ?< Mrs. Beasley was the principel wit ness iforrthe (prosecution at the trial* She described :in detail the events on the ;highb'of ((the tragedy. Sheriff King told of Hyde surrendering hhff self andvsaying'he planned the mur der of"hter.wife and was well pleased with the deed. ? : >' i' The State rested its case at one o'clock, and the defence introduced several witnesses, who testified in support of the claim of the prisoner's counsel that he was a victim of hereditary insanity. Following the argument by the attorneys and the Judge's charge, the jury retired and fifty-five minutes later returned a verdict of guilty. Mrs. Emma Beasley, mother of Mrs; Hyde, and wife of W. W. Beas ley, testified that she and her hus band were In one bed in the room and that Mrs. Hyde and her 15-year old sister, Willie Beasley, were inv another bed in the same room at the time of the shooting; that the shots; awoke her and that she slipped out of bed and grabbed Hyde as he was going out of the door. She was as sisted by Mr. Beasley, who caught Hyde around the back. Hyde re loaded his pistol, she said, and bold! up his left arm and fired on Mr. Beasley, killing him instantly. Mrs: PeasTey stated that the married-life of Hyde and bis wife was very un pleasant; that they frequently quar-. relied and that they had been parted twice. She said Hyde deserted Mrs. Hyde and for that reason her father had taken her back home. The prisoner as he sat by his old deaf father accepted (he verdict with out any tremor and without any change of expression. Before being led from the Court room to his ceU in the county jail, he stated that the verdict is a just one, that he is guil ty of murder and tha the expected a contradiction. "I didn't take the s;a:ul on my behalf," said Hyde, "be cause I didn't want to be classed along with these witnesses for the State, who swore lies on me. They btated that I had deserted my wife and that they hadn't taken her away from me. 7!iat is not so. There is OJJ2 tiling certain, they won't be ahlo :c seperate me from my wife auy nore, and when the sheriff hangs me ! will be the happiness man that has ever been hung. The Court appoint ed Mr. Rice to plead my case. He r.l mighty well. He made a good light but a useless one. I know I was guilty of murder and I know rhat 1 deserved to be hung."
