SPECIAL FOll CORN SHOW PARTY.
WiNon and Committee Coming to
C<?111 111 I> 121.
Columbia, Jan. iM.All railroad and:
other arrangements have b-en per- j
fected for the visit to Columbia of!
the Hon. James Wilson, secretary of ;
agriculture, and the agriculture com-;
mittee of the National House of Representatives,
who will attend the!
Fifth National Corn Exposition here
on Saturday, Febuary 1. Saturday is
one of the featuredays on the Exposition
prgrom, this being Boy's day,
the close of the exposition school for
prize winners, to be conducted during
I the first week of the expostion.
This is said to be the first time that;
an exposition has been visited by an
entire congressional committee, and
the acceptance of the invitation by the
agricultural committee of the house,
and by Secretary Wilson, is in the nature
of an official recognition of the serious
educational purpose back of this
great agricultural event.
The party will travel in a special I
car over the Southern Railway, leaving
Washington Friday, January 31.
Arriving here Saturday morning, they
will spend Saturday and probably
Sunday in Columbia. Very likely the
prize winner's school will take part
in welcoming the party to Columbia.
STEAM ROLLER USED.
Pres?dent Wisconsin National Bank
Says Illegal Means Employed
in Carrying Currency Plan.
Washington, Jan. 22.?That endorsement
of th-e national monetary commission's
banking and currency plan
- 3 tlio A m.ari/^a.n
"was iorceu uiuugu uiv mnv. ,
Banker's Association convention in!
New Orleans by "steam roller" methods,
with a great majority of the members
unfamiliar with the plan, was
charged today before the house currency
reform committee today by Andrew
J. Frame, president of the Waufteshau,
Wis., National Bank.
/ Mr. Frame declared that the American
Bankers' Association for years had
been a "close corporation" controlled
by ten or twelve men. At the New
Orleans meeting he said a dozen
speeches were made in favor of the
commission'ss plans, but those who desired
to oppose it wer? kept off the
J. V. Harwell, a Chicago merchant,
urged a modified form of the monetary
commission's plan which would
nrnvidp district discount associaations
r - v - ?v
with a central controlling body with
no capital stock nor general functions
of a bank.
Describing the proposed district bodies.
Mr. Farwell explained that they
should have authorized stock equal/to
ten per c?nt of the capital of the banks
' half paid in; should take eighty per
cent' of dead cash reserves in the
banks and hold them for common use.
and should do business with banks
only. Discounts and acceptances allowed
to any one bank, he continued,
should not exceed the amount of its
capital stock?and there should be a
fixed rate of discount in each district,
the same to all banks under like conditions.
The central association, Mr. Farwell
said, should hold most of the deposited
gold and issue all the notes
for th? district associations in return
for gold or commercial papers. In the
organization of this association or
board he proposed to have each district
association appoint two members,
a banker and a business man, and the J
government one member for each dis-1
trict association. All profits above j
five per cent on the capital stock of
the district associations, ofter allowing
for the accumulation of a twenty
per cent surplus, he suggested, should
go to the government for use in gradual
retiring of greenbacks and bonds.
Will Minims Will be Tried in Aiken
, for Attempted Criminal Assault.
Aiken, S. C., Jan. 22.?Posit ively j
identified as the negro who one night j.
about two weeks ago, boldly attempted j
to assualt a respectable white woman J
of Aiken, Will Mimms, a young negro
about 16 years of age, is in jail and j '
will face the serious charge which has; 1
(been made against him, at the February
term of general sessions court.
Mimms has been under suspicion
since the night the assualt was at- j '
tempted, and the police have been j 1
looking for him, as the description i
given Dy me woman ui uci ctasauaiu i
fitted his identically, but he has been j
in hiding. Chief of Police Jesse George |
arrested him yesterday, but the arrest |
was kept quiet until this afternoon
when it became known that the negro <
had been carried into the presence of
the woman and that she had positively j
identified him. ji
One night, two weeks-ago, as she,
was on her way to her home in the.
suburbs of Aiken, the woman, who is j
a \vell-k;.o\vn and highly respected |
widow, noticed that a negro was fol- I
lowing her. When near htr home, the!
spot being a little secluded, the negro;
hastened his pace and caught up with j
her. Bravely she stopped and de- j
manded to know where he was going, j
He replied that he was on his way to
the race track to look for work. The j
woman commanded him to pass her;
then, and warned him not to be fol- j
lowing her. Suddenly the brute sprang
at her, and struck her a heavy blow

and the negro, frightened, ran away.
The brutal as-sauIt created considerable
excitement at the time, and it is highly
probable that had the negro been j
caught that night he would have been
handled roughly, but the sheriff apprehends
no trouble now.
Mimms protests his innocence, but;

Orangeburg, Jan. 22.-The Orangeburg-Xorth
Railroad, which has been
in course of construction for some
time past, is'rapidly nearing comple-j

as Raymond, ten miles from North,'

to that point. The whole distance
from Orangeburg to North is seventeen
miles, and it is expected that1
within the next four months the road j
will be coinpleted and both passenger;'

The sad tragic death by his own
hands of Mr. A. Crane Jones, at his!
home in Spartanburg some days ago,
was a severe shock to his numerous (
friends in Clinton, where Mr. Jones i
in his youth was a popular drygoods j
salesman. Always seeming cheerful j
and happy and readily conversant on,
all current topics, it was a pleasure j,
to meet and talk with the now deceas- J
ed.' His friends, numbering thousands h
all over the State,fee] sorely the loss|

The report of Hon. R. A. Cooper, so'iciter
of the eighth circuit composed
of the counties of Abbeville, Greenwood,
Newberry and Laurens, js an
interesting document, showing the
criminal statistics for the past year.
The record shows an increase in crime
. - ^ - , i
over .the year lyii. ,
During the past year 202 cases were
brought to trial in"the circuit and 141
convictions were secured. Of the total
number of indictments, thirty-five
were for murder, of which eight were
found guilty of murder and eleven of
manslaughter. There were fourteen
cases for violation of the dispensary
law, in which convictions were secured
for nine. The usual number of in.-ir.tmonrc
anrt rnnvictions were secur
ed for other crimes. Laurens county
lead the other counties in the number
of indictments. However, Laurens
has the largest population and
her officers might he the best, so the
:iumb-er of indictments does not necessarily
indicate that Laurens had a
proportionately larger number of
crimes than her sister counties.
The report of Mr. Cooper is a com-;
prehensive statement of the criminal
records of the county and showed the

to besmirch my character for telling
the truth, and, having manhood enough
to s'wear to it, and for which I hold
I have no knowledge whatever of
how Gonzales got the information as
to the contents of your letter, for I
did not furnish it, nor did I show it
to Governor Blcase, or allow anyone
to the fact that I burned the letter
else to?and can furnish witnesses j
without ever letting it leave my pos- J
session before seeing Governor Blease,
after I received it.
I feel that you, of your position and
influence, did me a grave injustice,
and that you owe me a modification

Availability of Sources; of Mtroeen.,
When mixing fertilizer it is well to
use two sources of nitrogen, because
Of the difference in rapidity of coming
into availability of the sources. We
' " A r Vl i T? H /~>f tVlfi
preier 10 get a.uuut j
nitrogen from an inorganic source and :
two-thirds from an organic source.
If clxi of the nitrogen for cotton or
corn is to be derived from one source,
we would advise the use of an organic j
Nitrate of soda is immediately a-J
vailable to the plant and sulphate of
ammonia and dried blood are very
rapidly available, dried blood being
probably the most rapidly availab'e
organic source. We would advise the
use of about one hundred pounds per
ton of one of the above named sources,
and the balance of the nitrogen to j
< ??? ? ?moal h i o-}i i
come irom culluii accu ui'.u., "-0-grade
ground fish, or high grade ta::k-'
age. We advise the use of the high,
grade fish and tankage because the;
low grade fish and tankage usually
has much fins or bone present, as the
case may be, and the nitrogen co.it^Jt
is lowered, and, as these materia'.s do
not decay as rapidly as the flesh, the
nitrogen present is less available, tho>
:t ic derived from >'iesn. Bone,
especially raw bone, on account 01 |
its lasting qualities is high prized as
an orchard frtilizer. Cotton se d
meal is a good drier and therefore a
good source of organic nitrogen.
In home mixing we advise the far-! I
mers to use only the sources of nitrogen
that are known to give good "e- \
sults} such as have been already men-1
tioned. Any or all of the above can
be mixed with acid phosphate and
potash salts, there beng no incmpoatibilities.

SMALL CHANCE FOR RECEPTION, j
>*o General Fete Likely for March 4.?
Senate Leaders Oppose It.
Washington, Jan. 24.?As the result
of a general canvass of the senate to-;
demonstration during the evening of)
in all probabality there will be no
general public reception to President
Wilson after his inauguration March
4, next. When the Washington in- j
auguial committee referred the sub- 1
ject to the congressional inaugural j
committee and that body refused to j
take cognizance of it, the senate mem- j
bers of the committe led bv Senator \
Overman of North Carolina, inter-j
viewed practically al! members' of the j
senate. They found a preponderance |
Df opinion in opposition to any public- j
demonstration during me evenug ;
Reasons given for this conclusion! >vere
many. Necessarily the inaugura- j
:ion ceremonies, involving a trip to! :he
capital participation in the in- j
luguration of the vice president and j ^
:he proceedings in the senate, the de- ^
ivery of the inaugural address and I
:hat the prolonged review of the in-! g
msural procession, are tiresom^ and j ~
t is feared that to follow these with ?
i general rec-epton would overtax the e
