It is claimed by some that the re
cent doubling almost of the price of
sugar was a retaliation by the sugar
trusts on the public for the fine im
posed on it by the courts. Some of
the revelations that have been made
of the business methods of the trust,
show that no scruples of conscience
ever deter it from doing what it be
lieves will serve its financial ends.
In an address at the Missouri Val
ley Fair Tuesday night William Jen
nings Bryan said he was not a can
didate for President. "In addition
to the many other reasons why I
shall not again run for President,"
said he, "is that one Republican pres
ident having used my Platform in
part and another Republican presi
dent having used it entirely. I am
afraid if I became a candidate again
the Republicans would bring the
third term charge against me."
There is a habit and a delusion
among a large number of our peo
ple to go to some nearby town or
city to shop, believing that they can
purchase cheaper. We think these
good people may be buncoed by their
own thought. Please reckon your
oarfpre and time, if the latter is
worth anything. If our town mer
chants try to "soak" you or have not
what you want, of course, you are
;u stifled to go elsewhere. But first
find out by getting prices and see
what your home merchants have.
Entitled to Acquittal.
The trial of the famous label case,
which occupied the Court of General
Sessions at Columbia the best part of
la?t week, ended Monday morning by
the jury failing to agree and this
causing mistrial. The jury stood ten
for. acquittal to two for conviction.
The charge was conspiracy to defraud
the State out of a certain sum of
money in the purchase of labels. The
parties being prosecuted by the
State are Messrs. W. 0. Tatum, Com
missioner, and L. W. Boykin and
John Bell Towill, members of the
Board of Directors of the State Dis
pensary. We read every word of the
testimony submitted by the State, and
we have no hesitancy in s-aying that
none of the testimony connected Mr.
Tatum with the conspiracy, if there
was one, and that he should have
been acquitted ,by the jury.
The State established the Pact be
yond the shadow of a doubt that
there was a huge swindle in the pur
chase of the labels, and that over
twenty thousand dollars in graft was
divided among those who engineered
the deal, but it absolutely failed to
connect Mr. Tatum with either tho
deal or a participation in the divis
ion of the graft. It was clearly
proven by the testimony of Dennis
Weiskopf, head of the firm that se
cured the famous label order, and
John Earley, salesman for a liquor
house, that the ord r for the labels
was given by Mr. Boykin in person
subject to the approval of Mr. Towill,
which approval was later given. It
was also proven that one M. A.
Goodman, another liquor salesman,
was the go between in the deal and
handled the graft money and divid
ed it out.
Weiskopf and Early testified Boy
kin and Tatum were in Cincinnati
when the order was given by Boykin
for the labels, but they both said that
Tatum was not present when the ord
er was given by Boykin and had
nothing to do with that famous
transaction. They said Tatum went
to Cincinnati to inspect and study
bottling plants as the dispensary had
determined to establish its own bot
tling plant instead of buying bottled
goods upon a wholesale scale. Early
said Goodman told him he had given
Boykin $3,000., Tatum $300 and Tow
ill and a man named McCartha sums'
which he could not remember. This
I Is the only time that Tatum was men
tioned as receiving any of the graft
Both Weiskopf and Early denied
paying Boykin, Towill or Tatum any
money on this or any other transac
tion, but Early admitted that on one
occasion he gave Towill a five hun
dred dollar diamond ring and loan
ed Boykin three or four thousand
dollars. Goodman is the only one
that said he had given Tatum any
money, and thai was the insignificar*
sum of three hundred dollars. Both
Weiskopf and Early said they knew
Goodman well and testified that they
would not bj'elieve him on oath.
Early went so far as to say that Good
man was known as a "low, dirty
rascal." As we said above, this maft
Goodman is the only one that has ev
en Intimated that Tatum was given
We have given a short summa'-y
of the facts in the case as developed
by the witnesses for the State, ar.d
it will be seen that the only man
that connects Tatum with the label
j case at all is Goodman, who both
Weiskopf and Early, leading witness
es for the State, say they would not
^believe on his oath, and who, accord
ing to Early, was generally known
as a "low, dirty rascal." With this
showing Ta.tjum should have been
promptly acquitted by the jury, and
had he been tried separate from the
other defendants in the case we feel
sure that the jury would have done
so. The testimony against Boykin
and Towill by Early no doubt influ
enced two men on the jury to stand
out for a conviction of Tatum along
with the other defendants.
I No man's good name should be
I taken from him on the testimony of
I a bribe taking go-between like Good
man, who the State's own witnesses
declared, they would not believe on
oath, and who, as one of the State's
[witness admitted, was generally re
garded as a "low, dirty scoundrel."
No doubt Goodman stole the paltry
three hundred dollars he claimed to
have given Tatum and put it in his
own pocket, and then hatched up the
story that he gave it to Tatum to
fool his fellow boodlers when they
I were dividing the graft money.
| Admitting for the sake of argu
I ment that Tatum was in the conspir
acy to rob the State, does any sane
man believe that he would have sold
[out for the paltry sum of three hun
I dred dollars when he could have eas
ily gotten that many thousands?
Such an idea is preposterous. We do
not believe that Tatum got one cent
'of the money the 'State was buncoed
out of in this case, and as a matter
of justice we regret that the jury
did not say so. The fact that the
jury did not say so. however, will not
prevent all fair minded men from ac
quitting him of the charge made
The means used to defeat reci
procity over in Canada reveals the
facts that campaign lies of a flimsy
character often plays an important
part in deciding important questions.
It is questionable whether the merits
or demerits of the reciprocity agree
ment did or did not cut much of a
figure in the recent Canadian elec
tions. That the question itself did is
evident for it was used with marvel
ous effect as an annexation bogey.
Thousands of former liberal voters,
especfally in Ontario, voted conserva
tive because of the fear that reciproc
ity must lead to annexation.
That fear, though groundless, was
not. unnatural as a weak nation is
usually suspicious and nervous as to
the intentions of a stronger nation
living continguous to it. Another
potent cause that led to the down
fall of the Laurier government in
Quebec under the lead, of Bour

Valuable Plantation for Sale.
I am offering to sell as a whole
until October the fifteenth, 1911,
one of the best cotton plantations in
Calhoun County. If not sold as a
whole by then I shall cut into small
tracts and sell.
This plantation is located within
one mile of Lone Star, S. C, and the
A. C. L. R. R. runs through place,
making it an easy matter to arrange
; a plantation siding at almost any
point. There are 1264 acres in the
tract, 430 of which are in swamp and
pasture land, 600 acres now in cul
tivation, and about two hundred that
can be cultivated very easily.
The land is a dark soil, practically
level and free of stumps; there
are twenty good settlements on the
plantation, anl thr average rent for
the past twelve years has been 25,000
pounds of lint cotton per annum. I
am asking $30,000 for the place, and
left as it is entirely to tenants it
yields a magnificent return on that
amount, but this could be very much
increased by push and personal at
tention, as the character of this land
is the very best and repsonds quick
ly to work and fertilizer.
