JANUARY 17, 1894. ILOUIS APPE< APRIL 21, 1915. MANNING. S. C.. JUNE 16, 1915. PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY . I. APPELT, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. ADVERTISE YOUR BUSINESS. A man whose knowledge of business is a academic can never have a due understanding and appreciation of the 'struggle to keep a business going. The better a business is man aged, the more self-lubricating -it seiems to the outsider. No engine, no matter how beautifuUy made, will run with out a constant supply of power. Just so it is necessary, always and forever, to pump new steam into a business. A business that is not charged with the live wires of personality will soon be moving on momentum and then it stops. .OOKING AHEAD. From almost every source comes evidence of -abundant prosperity for American indus try and business. The' painful and tedious process of adjusting ourselves to world war condi tions has been finished. The basic industries of the nation are in splendid shape. The bal ance of trade in favor of the United States is assuming enor mous proportions. Europe is being forced to sell back .to us our securities at advantageous prices. From a great debter nation we are rapidly becoming a great creditor nation, and, if wisdom prevails, we shall . see New York take London,s place in the financial world, with the exchange of- the world .being transacted in dollars instead of pounds sterling. The United States stands at the threshold of a great opporsunity such as it has never had -before. The markets of the world -are open to our goods and we have the re sources to supply the demand. Our principal lack has been and is now efficiency ini manufactur ing methods and salesmanship, -but it is a neglect which is being ~rapidly remedied. All indica tions point to an era of great prosperity for the United States Mr. De~at's Position. June 14, 19 i5. Mr. E. D. Hodge, Alcolu, S. C. Dear Sir: You ask.~"How do you stand on the State cotton Warehouse -Law as now conducted by John L. McLaurin as Commissioner," and I am indeed glad to answer :. as this is the biggest question before our State today, and I will be frank-and open, aslIsup pose you want me tobe. I have tri'ed to keep up with the operation of the system by Mr. Laurin and I have heard of no harm that has been done and know of much good. While al ready the system has done good, I think we have just touched the beginning of its usefulness. The work will be -to develop and foster it, protect it from errors, -'-graft and, mismanagement and cautiously but consistently pro ceed along the lines Mr. Mc Laurin has laid them down. I presume from your question that you want my position to ward Mr. McLaurin as Commis sioner andlIwilligive it also ashe is a public officer.I have not been -arpolitical supporter of Mr. Mc Laurin, but this is not a question of politics. Mr. McLaurin as a abusiness man has caught a vis ion which if worked out will be -of immense benefit to farmers of the State, and he is the proper *man to work out his plans. If he tries to build a political machine of it he will kill the system and fall immeasurably in the estima .tion of the people, and this he knows. If elected, I expect to co-oper -ate with Mr. McLaurin in the passage of such laws as will perfect the system and extend its usefulness. As requested by you, I am giving a copy of this to the pa. -pers. Yours truly, Charlton DuRant. How's This t We offer One Hundred Dollars Reward for ayceofCatrh that canot be cured 1.v F. J.

LAXA TIVE BROMO QUNINE is better than ordinary1 ad dosnt cause nervousns no Sheriff of Riot at I Negro on Wi Mortally Takes Ma: Criminal j Where lF Judge Johi Winnsboro, June 15-Special: Sheriff A. D. Hood killed in per formance of his duty, Jules Smith, a negro charged with criminal assault, and Clyde Isen hower, a relative of Smith's a] - leged intended victim, dead, Deputy Sheriff Earle Stevenson desperately wounded, his left arm being practicnlly shot off, Rural Policeman J. R. Boulware shot in the pit of his stomach and barely living, and Jesse Morrison, brother-in law of Isen hower and a member of the at tacking party, shot in the head, and several other deputy sheriffs wounded, tell the horrible re sults of an attack by a small inob on the sheriff here this morning while he was ascending. the Court House steps with- the ne gro who was to be placed on trial for his life. Sheriff Hood went to Colum bia this morning and brought Jules Smith, the negro who was to be tried for the awful crime. back to Winnsboro to put him on trial for his life. The negro had been in the State Peniten tiary for safe-keeping and the sheriff was accompanied by sev eral deputies. This precaution was taken in view of certain threats said to have been utter ed. The sheriff and his prisoner reached here in safety. With the negro walking between him and Policeman Haynes, the sheriff had started up the steps to the court house, when a fusil lade of shots broke out. The first bullet struck the negro pris oner in the stomach with fatal results. The second bullet from the mob hit sheriff Hood. PROMISCUOUS FIRING. By this time the fusillade had become general, the mob firing promiscuously into the crowd which was following the sheriff and his party up the steps to the Court room, As soon as he could draw his pistol Sheriff Hood re turned the fire and several of his deputies joined in the affray. Sheriff Hood wos shot five times three times in the stomach, in his right side, in left arm, and between shoulgier and elbow. Deputy Sheriff Earle Stevenson who was right behind him, was shot twice in the left arm, prac tically severing it from his body. One bullet struck Rural Police man J. R. Boulware in his stom ach, probably fatally wounding him. Deputy Sheriff B. R. Beck man was shot in the left leg. Constable R. L. Kelley was shot in the thumb and right arm. Deputy Sheriff 3. W. Broom re ceived several bullets through his pants and one grazed his left foot. From all the information ob tainable the consensus of opin ion is that Clyde Isenhower be gan the shooting and it is said that his first bullet killed the negro prisoner. He himself was fatally wounded, being shot sev eral times, and received thirteen openings in his body as a result of bullets lodging there. It is thought that Sheriff Hood di rected his fire at Clyde Isenhow er, for the sheriff emptied 'his pistol, Isenhower, after being shot to pieces, staggered into the sheriff's office and had nn breached his pistol and reloaded it betore he fell faint from the loss of blood. OTHERS 'WOUNDED. Jesse Morrison, a brotber-in law of Isenhower, and said to have been a member of the mob, received a scalp wound in his head and had a thumb shot away. D. F. Smith. a bystand er, took refuge behind a tree and a bullet just grazed his stomach. Probate Judge W. L. Holley was standing in the door of the Court House at tlbe time of the shooting and a bullet buried it self in the door facing at his side. Although mortally wound ed, Sheriff Hood took the ne gro prisoner, who was sinking from the effects of the fatal bul let in his stomach, up the steps Fairfield D ?OurT Hous iy to Trial Sla Wounded, Shi n Accused of I kssault into C( [e Falls Dead ri S. Wilson room and pushed niim into theli (lock before he succumbed. As I he fell.to the floor, he said to I Solicitor Henry: "They have c got me at last." The negro pris oner lived only about ten mm utes., t Sheriff Hood, Deputy Sheriffs I J. R. Boulware and B. R. Beck- I bam were taken to Columbia on a special train, reaching there about :30 o'clock. Surgeons had Sheriff Hood on the operat- I ing- table several hours and I eighteen perforations w e r e found in his intestines. He was given every attention, but his condition from the first was hopeless, and he died to night at 7:50 o'clock. Deputy Boul ware has only. a fighting chance for recovery, the bullet having lodged in the pit of his abdomen. ISENHOWER SHOT SIX TIMES. 4 Clyde Isenhower,. said .to be the principal in the fatal tragedy and Deputy Sheriff Earle Stev enson were taken to Chester on the afternoon train, Dr. S. W. Pryor, their physician, said that Isenhower had been shot six-or seven times, and had thirteen openings in his body. Deputy Stevenson will probably lose his left arm. The other deputies received on ly slight wounds. Ernest Isen hower, a brother of Clyde Isen hower, and Jesse Morrison, a brother in-law, were arrested this afternoon and lodged in jail, charged with the shooting. Oth er arrests are expected to fol low. The grand jury has taken charge of the situation and is making a sweeping a.nd rigid in vestigation. Foreman 3. H. Coleman and his associates list ened with serious attention this afternoon during the charge by Judge Wilson and the general opinion is that those responsible for the affair are going to have to answer for it. Clyde Isenhower, said to be the principal in the shooting,i was a farmer, and resided in thei Wateree section, about seven miles from here. He has a large number of brothers, one of themi Ernest, who is in jail charged with taking part in the attack, has been teaching school in Clar endon county for two years.t Another brother is rural police man, another a town policemani here and still another pastor of< string,. of Baptist churches in this county..- Clyde Isenhower was put in the baggage car of the north-bound train this after-. noon and taken to the hospital1 in Chester. He was accomnpan ied by his wife. His aged moth er was in tears when the train t pulled -out. By his side on an-i other cot was Earle Stevenson,J one of the deputies who had r helped defend the prisoner, bleeding from the bullet wounds 1 in his left arm. Jesse Morrison, c the brother in-law, is said to be 1; from Great Falls, in Chester County.r STRONG CONDEMNATION. The people of Winnsboro are strong in their condemnation of the affair, and demand a vig orous prosecution of the guilty parties. They say that it has put a stain on their town, long known as a place where law and order prevailed and proud of their untarnished record in the past. They declare that the mob was composed of less than half a dozen, none of whom were Winnsboro people. They do not hesitate to say that the whole thing as plan'ned, a conspiracy which they can find has only ~ beeni paralled by the Hillsville, Va., tragedy. The shooting took place at 10 o'clock this morning and by noon the town people were possessed 'i of their accustomed calm, a t seemingly deadly calm which i foretold a determination to wipe b out the stain which had unwit tingly fallen upon them by bringing to speedy justice to t those responsible. The people! r hee did not understand the ne 8 ead e Door in-Though ariff Hood kttempted )urt Room in Dock. Presiding. tary company, but that brave ody of men under Capt. J. B. )oty responded promptly when >rders came from Columbia. They escorted Sheriff Hood Lmd the two wounded deputies o the special train, which took hem to Columbia, for there had een some idle talk that more hooting was imminent. The ompany dispersed, for there .vas nothing for them to do. The ownspeople were amazed when wo automobiles, carrying 4,800 ounds of rifle ammunition and 700 rounds of pistol ammunition aced in from Columbia. The letail, which brought the am nunition, was commanded by Adjt Gen J. Shapter Caldwell, !or the report had been sent to olumbia that the company here was without ammunition. The mars were guarded by a detail of en hastily enlisted in Columbia ind the run from the Capitai ity here was made in record ime. The detail returned to Dolumbia when they found the ituation here was quiet. Sev aral automobiles came from Dolumbia, but the excitement iere lasted less than an hour; in Eact, as one citizen said, it was 011 .over before anyone knew hat was going on. They best lescribed it as "sounding like he popping of firecrackers." ourt was to have convened 3ere this morning, but after the ragedy it did not assemble un ~il 3 o'clock this afternoon. here was an air of unusual olemnity prevading the court room, and Judge Wilsen and ~he jurors all reflected the grav ty of the situation by their .gac ~ions and demeanor. The at nosphere impressed one with ~he. feeling that those responsi lefor the tragedy were going obe held to "strict accounta' ility." ASSASSINATION" SAYS COURT. The blood-stained portals of his temple of justice cry aloud ~or the vindication of the majes y of the law,. said Judge Johli 9. Wilson in his vigorous charge o the Fairfield grand jury this tfternoon, in which he denoounc d the shooting of Sheriff Hood nd his deputies as "assassina ion" and called on the jury to nake a thorough and sweeping nvestigation and to bring every ne connected with the horrible ffair to justice. It is your duty, said Judge. Wilson, to act atnd act in sae' a nanner as to vindicate the law wich has been so greatly nut -aged this day. Calling attention to the re hat be first presided as Judge! n Winnsboro in September 1907. ludge Wilson recalled the glo -ious history of Fairtfield cunthy 'a county known for the unrn tood of its men and the pulity f its. women, a county where aw and order reigned, but hich this day has been out 'aged. Did this happen on the orders of Arizona? Did this appen in Mexico? No, it hap ~ened in old historic Winnsboro, ontinued the Judge. "What man is there whose lood does not boil when he ears of the crime of which this oor wretch stood accused?" udge Wilson asked, adding at he had been informed that be negro had confessed and bat everything was in readiness o give him a fair and impartial rial, and that the law woufd ave been vindicated and justice one. He said that men should ontrol themselves in such cir umstances, "but this morning ien gave vent to their passions d took the law into their own ands, and with what result? pour sheriff lies hovering be ween life and death. The negro dead. Several deputies are adly wounded. Talk about exico? Here at the door of his court house lawlessness eigns. It ought to shake the tate of South Carolina from entre to circumferene, " em phatically declared Judge Wiw son. TRIBUTE TO SIERIFF. Tihe Judge paid a glowing tri bute to the brave sheriff who risked his life in the I-erfor mance of his duty. "A man without a drop of coward's blood in his veins and a man whom I delight to honor: I wish every sheriff in South Carolint was like him, and that we had thousands of such citizens." stated Judge Wilson, who pras ed the bravery, the. dotio'n to duty and the a.,>tion of Sheriff Hood. aid called on the gr-nd jury to bring the ones -*gu;lty of this horrible crime" to jus tice: S(Oieitor J. K. HenrV W;s equally emphatic in his denuin ciation of the occurrence. and took immediate steps to begin a a vigorous prosecution of the gailty parties. The matter was taken in hand by the grand jury and an immediate investigation was begun Coroner Smith empanelled a jury and, after viewIng the re mains of the dead negro, ad journed the inquest until a later - date. It is hardly probable that the coroner's jury will majke much of an investigation, be- e cause the grand jury, being in pn session. will handle the whole Sa ar matter. er Late this afternoon Ernest , Isenbower and Jessie Morrison wi were- arrested, charged with tu participating in the shooting, and both were lodged in jail. It is understood that warrants have vh been issued for others and more re arrests are expected to follow. T1 er Mr. Wideman Explains. Alcolu, S. C., June 12, 1915. re J. W. Wideman, Esq., Manning, S. C. Dear Sir:-Seeing by your card In Is the papers that you are a candidate GE for ate Beasta from Clarendon i County t enew o1 numbers of voters, myself included. -that would like to le know hS yoU Wews are and how w you stand on the State cotton ware ousa law, as now conducted by John re McLaurin as Commisoner. Please ive us your views in next weeks pa- ?h pers as to this particular question and oblige many voters. Yours very truly, M E. ). Hodge. Jac I have been requested by Mr. E. D. se Hodge to express my views on the State' Warehouse System and .I am sti Indeed glad to do so. TI I have for some time been Interest- bc ed in this bill. In fact, when I had bI charge of the Chautauqua during the he month of April, I was instrumental m in getting Senator McLaurin down to m Manning to imake an address on that tur occasion. I did this not only because an I myself was interested, but becauseat I thought an address on the State Warehouse System would prove to~ be an interesting and instructive sub ject to the people of the whole county. In the outset I wish to say that I it am heartily in sympathy with the F State Warehouse System for the sim- im pie reason that I honestly believe it ~ will ultimately prove to be the salva tion of the whole South. No other tl ountry in the world has such a mon opoly as the South has in her cotton. po~ No people have such an opportunity as we have to establish a credit sys tem of our own, through our State II government. Our cotton, needs only to be bandied in the proper way, i'1 - order to bring money into the pockets - of those who produce it. There is not a doubt but that there is a determin ed ffort on foot throughout the whole South to conserve the waste from the farm to the mill. At the present time the producer of cotton gets about one-. half of Its real value. The farmer takes his cotton to town, has it grad ed by a grader In the employ of an eporter. That grader can grade strict middling as low middling and the farmer must accept the grading bcause he Is utterly in the hands of the grader. The cotton is shipped to charleston or some other seaport town to the exportar who puts the cotton on a boat bound for Europe. The exporter is a business man and therefore makes as large a profit as~ lie possibly can. 'The same cotton the farmer sold to the grader at Sc a pound brings in Europe about 20c a pound. So where does the 12c a pound The 12c a pound goes to pay the grders salary and expenses, the ex porter's profits, the transportation . and the insurance rates. The State Warehouse system will remedy this. It also means the bringing together of cotton to be- shipped and sold direct to the manufacturers themselves. At the present time If a farmer stores his cotton in a warehouse, lie must pay the warehouse charges andl an enormous insurance rate. If he is able to borrow any money at all on this cotton, he can borrow it for only a few months and at a rate of S per cent per anum. La the fall our farm-'e ers are obligel to sell their cotton, whether the market price at that-timej is 5c a pound or 20c a pound. Under the State Warehouse 'System, how ever, a farmer can store his cotton. payy.an extraordinarily small rate of insurance, and lorrow all the money tie wants, on per cent of the actual value of his cotton, at the rate of 3 1-2 per cent to 5 per cent per annum. He aan borrow this money for a year rad have the loan renewed for an yther six months. In this way the Carmer is able to hold his cotton until there Is a demand for same. I am also sincere in saying that at -.he present time I believe Senator J. U. McLaurin is- the best man to han ie the proposition. He has dreamed g, and worked and fought for, this system for practically a life time and t Is only reasonable to think, that he ss in a better position than any other nan in our State to handle the situa Thee are my v-iews briefly express J.
