Believed That Troops on Scene Wil
be Able to Reep Things
Palestine, Tex., Aug. 1.-In his
charge to the special grand jury im
panelled today Judge B. B. Gardner
of the third judicial district demanded
that a thorough investigation of the
race riot in Anderson be made.
Four additional arrests were made
today in connection with the clash:
beLween the whites and blacks Friday
night and Saturday. Eight white men
are now in jail all of whom are charg
ed with murder in the first degree, and
held without bail to await the action
of the grand jury. These are: James
Surger, Josh Bishop, Walter Fergus -

Younger, arrived here today and is

The troop will patrol the scene of the
riots and protect the prisoners now
According to the authorities the
situation is now well in hand and no
further trouble is anticipated.
Deputy Sheriff Reeves, who return
ed from Slocum this afternoon, -said:
"I am positive that the trouble be
tween the white and black races of
Anderson county is at an end, it is my
further belief that no more than 15
white men participated in the riot. Of
course there were probably between
100 and 200 armed men in the com
munity, but they were armed merely
for the purpose of protecting their
homes and quelling such uprisings as
might occur. The great majority of
these men did not reach the scene of
the trouble. A coroner's inquest over
the eight negro bodies found returned
a verdict in each case, that the de

Columbia, August 1.-The warm
weather and cessation of rains have
improved crop conditions in this
State very greatly within the past few
days. Up to ten days ago there was
excessive blueness and despondency
on the part of the farmers, particular
ly those in 'he territory below Colum
bia, but this is now materially chang
The improvement is, however, not
universal, as some of the farmers
contend that in places crops were be
yond recovery and that the stands
were so bad that they could not be
saved by conditions. The stands and
crop conditions in the upper part of!
the State are said to be better than
they are in the fiat country, because
the, upper tier of counties is rolling
and hilly. In certain parts of the sec
tion below Columbia the cotton crop
is said to be particularly good. The
farmers generally have used fertiliz
ers freely and expect to derive'* full
Little Advance Selling.
In previous years many farmers
have sold their cotton in advance to
merchants and cotton dealers. Last
year there was a great deal of "wail
ing and gnashing" on this account and
quite a number of failures were re
corded and credited to the advance!
sale of cotton and subsequent inabil
ity to get the cotton that had been
bought. The general experience~
has been that it is most difficult to
get deliveries when the market goes
up. The reports this year are that
but little actual cotton is being sold1
for fall delivery. Although prices now]
are generally regarded as being very 1
good, both buyer and seller are 'timid
about getting together--that is for ac
.Nearly a Century Ago.
It is interesting to note that mo
than 'ighty years ago, Mill1s, the civil
eg and architect, who designed
the first asylum building here and the*
WVhite House at Washington. wrote a.
pamphlet in which he strongly urged1
that the drainage of the lowlands of
this State would do more for South
Carolina than any one agency. Mills'
pamphlet, which is quite rare, gives a
full engineering outline of how this
drainage could be accomplished. In]
the course of the argument, written in 1
the first part of the nineteenth cen- 1
tury, he argued that drainage would
do much towards solving the slavery
question. MIills was opposed to slav-1
