V newsboys thrust "extras" at them, announcing
what seems to be the most
ft destructive work the militant suffra^-gettes
have yet accomplished. St.
Catherine's church at Hatcham, in the
(Southeastern part of London, one of ;
ie finest church edifices in the suburbs,
caught fire soon after noon in a
mysterious way and was destroyed.
Tie interior of the church, which was
Built in 1893, was like a seething furnace
a few moments after the flames
were discovered. The roof fell in ha^f
an hour afterwards and the tumbling
masonry seriously injured a fireman.

cott, ^when asked about the cause of
^.the fire, said:
"I can not ascribe it to any other
than those delightful ladies."
The vicar visited the church at noon
"when he noticed three women in the
building. He supposed them to be
praying. He now believes that theyi
fc arranged the fire and thinks explosives J
pf must have been used to aid in the destruction.
An attempt to explode a bomb wasi
made early this morning, outside th-e
Grand hotel opposite Trafalgar square,
"where suffrage disturbances took
place on Sunday. The hotel was
crowded with American tourists. A
policeman saw a woman deposit a can
with a lighted fuse in front of the
door. He extinguished the'fuse and|
uirsued the woman. He arrested aj
?^nroman whom he supposed to be the
culprit, and who when brought up in
court gave her name as Ada Ward.
Investigation proved her to be a night
prowler, who had often been brought
up in the police court, sne aemeai
planting the bomb, which disappeared
V while the policeman was chasing her.

DESPERADO NOW LOCATED. 1
Advices Say That He Will Probably 5
Be Caught?Posse Has Left Allendale
For Scene of Another (

V^OlULLiUlct ACLUiu, i
The first definite information con- j
cerning the whereabout of the negro ^
desperado and triple murderer, Richard
Henry Austin, was received late
this afternoon from Savannah. The j
headquarters of the Bronson railway
at that city is in receipt of advices J
that the negro has been located in a
house near Kilson, Ga., and his cap- ,
ture will probably be consummated. ,
Kitson is near Sylvania, Ga., where
many false clues have been run to '
One thing that makes the informa
tion from K^.son, Ga., probable is the 1
fact that a wounded negro, giving his 1
name as Austin, visited the home of
another negro near. Sylvania last ?
ni^jht. Before the authorities could be 1
notified the negro made his escape.
Austin has worked, hunted and fished
in the territory around Sylvania for ;
the past five or six years and knows
every foot of the country. Also, his
father lives near the town. *
A report received from Clyo, Ga.,
says that the negro is surrounded in
a swamp about 1* 6miles from Savan
nah, Ga. The report from Clyo said
that a posse and bloodhounds were
closely on the track of the black, but 1
reinforcements ungently are neded to :
effect his capture.
This morning a posse of "16 determined
men left Allendale for the
Georgia side, where they will assist
in the man-hunt Sheriff Morris, of
Barnwell county, v^hc was communicated
witih this morning in Allendale
innrr distance telephone, said
that other tlan the message, from
Civo, Os... which was seat by Rural
Policeman Alfred Dunbar, he had
heard nothing of Austin.
It was reported yesterday that a
heavily armed negro, supposed to be
Austin, and answering lits description
in every particular, was arrested at
Florence. . Sheriff Morris immediately
went to thic city, but found that the
arrested man is not the much wanted
negro. He returned to Allendale today
to be near the center of the manhunt.
Was True of the Two.
At a certain meeting in an out-ofthe-way
town the only attendants were
one little chairman and a citizen of
large stature. The ch airman had
some resolutions to pass which began
by representing that they were presented
to a "large and -expectable"
gathering of voters.
"Hold on," cried the other maL, "we
can't pass that, for it 't true. It
ain't a large and resp ctr'ile meeting.
There's only two of us."
"You keep still," com- anded the
"v ' x -
wily chairman: yit's aiI r -cnt ior yvu
are large and I am respc- table-. Yon
just keep still."
So the resolutions wore , assed without
further demur.?We 'dy Telegraph.
The Uew Federal Judge.
If every judical appointee of Pres
ident Wilson snail Tiierji uv auuewuo
of ability, interests* ; *?adth
and capacity for the V ,reat
desrrfe as does Charles /
South Carolina, sel^ctt-u :-*e ot i
the fourth circuit the feuer. l bench
will increase greatly in the confidence
of the people. In this case the president
followed the course of President i
Taft who, disregarding all pressure 1
t ? i
and casting influence out of the scales,
chose the ablest lawyer in South Carolina,
if not in the entire district,
Henry A. M. Smith, *or a vacancy on
the same bench. Judge Woods is a
man of many abilities, but he is in no
sense a politician. r He was elected
associate justice of the supreme court
of South Carolina after a strenuous
contest, but there ^?'*s Rot then, as
there has not been since, the slightest
taint on his judical ermine. He is a
man of the highest character, a jurist
of unsullied record, a man who ha6
lived and walked and wrouffht as be
came a judge.
The Times-Dispatch desired this
appointment to go to a Virginian and
exerted its energies to that end but
now that those in authority fail to
coincide in our view, we are free to j
say that no better appointment could |
have been made. Judge-Woods is one
:>f the ablest leavers and the ablest
judge that South Carolina has known
in a decade. He was at the bar for
30 years, and for 10 years nas Deen
an associate, justice of the highest tribunal
of his State. In all that period
tie has borne the reputation of being
i man and a lawyer of the highest
ideals, who observes strictly the loftiest
standard of private and public
sonduct. The: South Carolina bench
50 years ago was inferior to none in
:h?e nation; ;he decisions of its judges
?!ow with fadeless lustre in American
jurisprudence. The most notable
equity decision of the first half of the
last century came frofl! the quill of a
splendid South Carolina judge, Davis
Lewis Wardlaw. The times have
changed in South C-svrolina, and the
)ench has changed with them. Tillmanism
ripped the robes off the backs
)f most of the able and distinguished
judges so that their places might
511ed by "cornfield lawyers" and pea
nut politicians. Tne supreme coun
svas deliberately packed in order that
political doctrines might 'become law.
Despite the new order good men have
?one upon the bench there and Judge
Woods is one of them. He was elected
because of his sheer legal ability.
With the spirit of progress guiding his
hand, he has written dicisiohs that
are milestones in the social, legal and
sconomic progress of the State.
'Woods, A. J." at tie bottom of an
opinion has been a symbol in South
Carolina of the finality of right.
Virginia will like her new federal
lurtoro TT^. is a n#vrfirma.b1e man. a
man o* real culture, the possessor of
fine moral and intellectual power. He
is a studenut and a friend of learning,
a widely read man who keeps thoroughly
in touch with the world outside
the court room. He is a graduate
of Wofford college, one of the fine old
Methodist colleges' of the country, and
has been one of its trustees. He is an
excellent public speaker, especially
upon educational themes. Not only
because of his position, but also because
of his splendid qualities as citizen
and man, will he be welcome to
"Richmond and to Virginia.

Garland Ould might operate a train

Greenville, Laurens, Little

This whole problem of a better schedule

would be solved if an inturban connection
were made betwen Belton and

Besting on His Laurels.
An undertaker was discussing queer
sepultures, says the New York Trihnrifi.
"A queer sepulture indeed," he said,,
"was that of a German playwright,.
Gustave Von Moser. Von Moser kept
in his house a costly and beautiful
urn. He proposed to he cremated, an4*
his ashes were to be put in the urn.
"But the strangest thing about th-a
urn was that it contained a little be4;
of ashes during Von Moser's life. H?
usee, you see, to get a good many laurel
wreathes when his new plays we"fc
put on, and he would take a spritfrom
each wreath, burn it, and drop*.
the ashes into the urn.
" 'My own ashes,' he would say, 'wilf
lie on top. Thus, after death, it may
be truly said of me that X am resting
jiy laurels.' "
