The subway tavern, it reads-, "has w

"We protest against the establish- or

and countenanciny of such devices of I~
satan by Christians, and we will labor i
against such places equally as against p'
the less hypocritcal saloon."

DARLINGTON GRAND JURY.
Presents Pegram Dargan As Acces
sory Jn Procuring the Death of
His Brother, R. K. Dargan.
Darlington, September 26.-"We
present Pegram Dargan for aiding
and abetting Robert Keith Dargan in
taking his own life, by procuring and
giving to his brother, Keith Dargan.
carbolic acid and other drugs. with
which he took his life on the iith day
of July, 1905, in Darlington. S. C.
We offer as witnesses J. N. Clanton,
Dr. G. B. Edwards, J. S. Floyd and
J. K. Doyle." This was one of the
rccommendations made by the grand
jury here today.
Since the death of Mr. Robert
Ke-ith Dargan it has been a matter of
conjecture here and elsewhere as to
whether the grand jury at this term
of court would incriminate Mr. Pe
gram Dargan in taking the life of his
brother. This recommendation will
doubtless be of general interest, since
there have -been so many stories afloat
with regard to *rhe. peculiar circum
stances of R. K. Dargen's death.
Judge Gary thanked the jury for the
fai-ch-ful discharge of their duty and
assured them that -their recommenda
tions would be carried into effect.
This means, of course, that the
Dargan mat.ter will again be brought
before the public. Pegram Dargan
will likely be summoned to appear at
the next term of court and tried upon
the charge implied in the foregoing
The following is the grand jury
who made the presentment and who
have been discharged: Albert Jor
dar, Jr., foreman; D. C. Adams, D. J.
Bass, M. 0. Anderson, W. J. Benson,
W. C. Barefoot, R. L. Blackman, E.
R. Caston, N. K. Gibson, 0. D. Joye,
A. L. Laney, R. L. Meiton, E. V. Mc
Nabb, W. R. Teal.
The presentment of Mr. Pegrarn
Dargan was made in the general re.
port of the grand jury. This was
their final report for the year and they
were at once discharged by Judge
Gary. The action of the grand jury
brings the matter directly and offi
cially before Solicitor Johnson, who
says he can do nothing at this term
of court, as the grand jury is now dis
charged. The next session of the
criminal court does not convene until
next March and Solicitor Johnson
has nothing to say.
A few other minor cases were
isposed of by ,the court. The most
important was that of Reuben
Bull, who was found guilty of
the manslaughter of Murray Camp

706 to 131.
Yorkville, September 26.-By a
majority of practically six to one
the voters of York county said at the
ballot box today that the dispensary
at Yorkville must be closed. Eight
hundred and thirty-seven votes were
polled a: 18 of the ig precincts, of
which 706 were against the dispen
sary, and 131 in favor of its retention.
Piedmont, the precinct not heard
from, ordinarily polls about 15 votes
in a primary.
While the vote is much smaller
than was expected, still the prohi

The farmers are exceedingly busy

of them did not take time to vote be
cause they considered the result a
foregone conclusion, and that the
majority against the dispensary would
be sufficiently large without their
votes. And as many as fifty persons
were denied the privilege of voting at
Yorkville because of defects in their
registration certificates, due to care
lessness on the part of the supervisors
of registration. The following is the

President Macara Says Haul to New'
England Puts America on P*r
London, September 26.-C. W. Ma

Spinners' association of Great Britian,
replying to a statement made by S. S.
Dale, who represented the New Eng
,land Cotton Spinners' an'd Mianufac
-Eurers' association in the last inter
national cotton congress at Manches
ter. declares that Mr. Dale misrep
resented the attitude of the congress
respecting the consumption of raw
cotcon. The congress, Mr. Macara
says, had no quarrel with American
planters, had no desire to interfere
with their legitimate profits and had
no objection to -the fluctuations
brought abouc by a small or a l.arge
yield. As a matter of fact the grow
er would be well rewarded in an ordi
nary season by a return of eight cents
per pound. By gambling operations,
however, the price had been advanc
ed for several seasons to 14 cents per
pound higher, which meant an ad
vance on the world's crop of $480.

Macara adds, is as badly handicapped
as the European spinners, the cost
of the carr.iage of cotton to the
New Eng'land. mills being as great
as the cost of carriage by sea to Lan
