Sersational At,ack on Dead Wlis
Columbia, Oct. 28.-To-day's . ses
sio- of the dispensary investigation
was very dull, being devoted to argu
ments over the Lanahan claim.
Mr. Felder bitterly arraigned the
Lanahans, particularly Sam J. Lan
ahan, whom he referred to as the
"arch conspirator in corrupting the
-'Until death cut off this mortal
monster." said Mr. Felder, "his
slimy trail could be traced every
where and has been traced by this
commission. We find ithem pay
ino rebates according to a fixed sched
ule as high as $25 a barrel."
"And yet," said he, bowing in a
mocking way to Mr. Clark, "tl - em
inent eitizen. Col. Clark, has the ef
frontery,phe audacityto come in here
and thestateto pay these iminaculate
clients of his this last little $5,000
claim,after these clients' have been

Mr. Chark jumped 'to his feet and
"Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of
this conmaission, this.line of argu
ment must cease. Mr.' Felder must
confine himself to the record and not
go out of his way to insult te."
At the suggestion of Chairman
Murray and other members of the
commission, Mr. Felder modified his
rentarks *ith reference to Mr. Clark,
saying it was not his intention to in
sult him. He added that it was. his
deliberate opinoin that had Mr. Clark
known as much of the rottenness of
the Lanahan firm before he came to
defend them as he must know by this
time, Mr. Clark would not now be
The- arguments this morning over
the Lanahan elaim were between Mr.
Felder for the commission and Mr.
W. A. Clark for the Lanahan firm.
The commission held a long executive
session which consumed the entire
afternoon at which the various claims
were gone over.
Messrs. Townsenid and Smyth of An
derson Mills Buy East Indian
Prdct.-Begin With Small
Anderson. Oct. 29.-President H.
C. Townsend of the Townsend twine
-mills and President Ellison A. Smyth
of the Pelzer cotton mills have placed
orders for seyeral hundred bales of
kEa.st India cotton and, it is said, that
other mills in the Piedmont section
have done likewise..
The Indian cotton is of a shorter
Isaple than the upland cotton but i's
as white and smooth. The mills are
going to experiment with this cotton
and if it works satisfactorily, and the
mill men are confident it will, large
orders. will be placed at once.
The experiment is being made with
this cotton on account of the hight
price of American cotton.
The Indian cotton was b.ought. at
-11 1-8 eents f. o. b. New York. -The
freight to Anderson is 36 eents per
100 pounds. This cotton can, there
fore, be laid down here for about 11
1-4 cents while the American cotton
is bringing 14 1-4 here now. The sav
ing of 2 cents- per pound will be a big
item with the mills and, if the experi
ment, proves satisfae:ory, arrauge
ments will be made to bring larg6
shipments from an Indian port direct
to Charleston, by which 23 cents per
100 pounds will be saved.
CONDITION OF COTTON 55.6
Deterioration for the .Pasb Month
Less Than Usual.-Decline Esti
mated at 3.9 Points by New
York, Journal 'Commerce.
1New York, Oeiober 29.--Deterior
ation for .the pastz month -in the con
ditioni of cotton was somewhat less
than uirmal, being 3.9 points. against
3.6 pinlts last year. 4.1 points in
1907, 7.~5 points in 1906. 4.:3 point's in
1903 aind 6 points in 1903. In 1904
condition gainued 1.6 points. The loss
of 3.9 rpoints makes condition this
month 3.6 compared with 67.5 last
year a?nd 62.4 in 1907. Deteriora.tion
was most marked in Alabama, Mis
sissippi and Louisiana. where de
clines were 5.9 points. 7.9 points and
10 points, respectively.
Owing to very favorable weather
con'diti nfs picking has proceeded with
marked rapidity, 75 per cent.. being
gahered. against 71 per cent. last
year, tic per cent. the year before and
56 per rent. in 1906. Only once has
this been exceededl since 1903. wvhen
in 190 76 per (-enit. was picked at
ths : s. Texas and Louisiana are
neari . icked out. where S3 per
cent. , rathered in 1he former and.
90 m' . -u. in the latter.
V:u v favorable wearlier condi
tions with practically no scarcity of
labor enabled farmers to gather the
crop with great rapidity, giving a
clean staple and free from stains. As
yet frosts have not inflicted serious
damage, except in parts of the low
lands, and numerous sections may
yet make more cotton if killing fros:s
hold off for another -thirty days. But
the condition of the plant is almost
universally poor, owing to unfavor
able weather throughout the season
and correspondents complain of a
small yield and the proportion of
lint to seed light. Cotton is gener
ally marketed as fast as ginned, ow
ing to high prices and according to
reports very little-is being held back.
Only in Louisiana has the boll wee
vil given any trouble during the
month, the crop being practically
free from other insects.
"A Knight for a Day."
The B. C. Whitney's production of
musical shows have for years been
famous for the lavish scenic produc
tions, and beautiful and extravagant
costumes, notable examples of which
are the "Isle of Spice." "A Broken
Idol" and "A Knight for a Day."
This latter attraction under the di
rection of Mr. Ben Falk, is booked
for an early engagement in this city,
and is said to represent far greater
investment than any other Whitney
production which has ever borne this
popular trade-mark, and is unques
tionably one of the heaviest, hand
somest and most massive scenic pro
ductions ever given a musical show.
Prominent in the cast of "A
Knight for a Day" is Mr. Frank De
shon, the famous .comedian, who for
the past two seasons has appeared in
Ohe leading comedy role, and accord
ing to the press of the different cities
in vhich the company has appeared,
has scored by far the greatest success
of his career. Other clever artists
associated with Mr. Deshon are:
Pass Ellen Tate. Mr. Wim. H. Stow
ell, Miss Connie Mac, Mr. Joseph
Leighton, Miss Alice Henderschott,
Mr. Phil Fein, Mr. S. E. Lewis, Miss
Grace Pearse and a large chorus of
singing and dancing girls.
While nearly all of the musical
numbers are of the so-called popular
or whistleable sort, others approach
the classical, and all of them are orig
inal in theme. Among the popular
hiits are the following numbers:
"The Garden of Dreams," "I'.d
Like Another Situation Just Like
That,'' ''Sea-Saw,'' ''What Fools
We Mortais Be," "Whistle Whe'n
You Walk Out." and " The Little
Girl in Blue."
"A Knight for a Day" is said to
afford unusual and exceptional op
portunities for the most elaborate
iseenicegeffects, and any at all famil
ia) witli. the W'hitney comic opera
productions as staged by Gus Sohlke,
will readily understand that these op
portunitities have not been overlook
