r Harthville, Jan. 3.-Smoking ruins
and charred walls' are all that is left
of the home of the late Major James
Lide Coker. .The fire caught the roof
this morning about 11 o'clock. James
L. Coker, eldest son of Major Coker,
*owned and oedumpied the home.
It appears -that Mrs. Coker had
left the house for a few minutes. Re
turning she noted the roof of her
home ablaze and immediately turned
in the alarm. The fire department
responded at once and a large crowd
of friends assembled to render aid.
Owing to the poor water pressure dlue
to long hose connections it was dif
ficult to throwv the streams of water
high' enough to subdue the flames
which, fanned by a stiff breeze, made
rapid headway. Possibly a spark
ifrom a chimney alighted on the
shingle roof and from this the
stately 01(1 frame residence, a man
sitaon in its (lay when built about
~forty years ago, bpecame a complete
lwreck. A watch belonging to Mrs.
Gay, mother of Mrs. Coker, who
eft last week for her home in New
fork State, was among the few
WAluables saved from the second
Jfoor. Much furniture and other
prne~~ry upstairs was destroyed.
All'of the effects on the first floor
including valuable paintings, books,
etc., were saved. TIhis is about the
largest residential fire in Harts
ville's history..

The negro man is :said t have

Columbia, Jan. 3.-The lethargic
ittitude of the general public toward
the apprehension and conviction of
:riminals is the primary cause of law
ess conditions in South Carolina, was
the position taken by Judge James 'E.
Puerifoy in his charge here today
to the Richland county jury at open
ng of the court of common pleas.
'The greatest weakness in the system
f enforcing the law," he said he
!harged "lies in the masses of the
people who are not willing to give
estimony that is true, or who, white
v,ash things after the commission of
i crime or who intimidate wits."
'Various causes of the prevalence of
!rime had been given," he said,
'among them being the failures of
the juries to convict and the freeing
)f criminals by astute and skillful
lawyers; when, in fact, the trouble
ies in the attitude of the masses
toward the rights of society and pro
perty and the repugnance toward re
porting the crime to the constituted
iuthorities and the failure to come
nto the bar of the court and testify."
More ,than 100 indictments have been
prepared for the grand jury for the
illeged crimes ranging from murder
to larceny. Of these there are thirty
lix indictments for stealing; seven
by for crimes of violence and six for
violating of the prohibition law.

bacco in . the Bright - Belt- which ,ls
composed of the States of North Caro
lina1 Spith Carolina, and Virginia is
now assured from the reports which
have: been received from camiaign
headquarters. -
It will be remembered that in order
to orgAnize it was necessary for one
half the total. production of the' three
states, to be, in the Association by
January 1, 1922, and for at least
forty -per cent of the production of
South Carolina be organized by athat
time. We have felt all along that we
were sure of our quota; and now we
are gratified to know that we were
not mistaken.
Clarendon County has gone well
beyond her minimum quota of forty
per cent, and it is believed that she
is slightly over the fity per cent
mark. Contracts totalling 1,860,000
pounds have passed through this of
fice.' A number of large growers as
well as many smaller ones signed
contracts at' meetings in Williams
burg and Florence counties. I do not
have records of them here aid they
have not been counted In the above
figures. They should put our sign
up well above the 2,000,000 pound
I wish again to take this oppor
tunity to thank everyone who has
helped to put this movement across
by his signature and by his active
work in presenting the idea to others.
Our farmers and business men have
shown wonderful coo-peration in this
I also wish to thank The Manning
Times for their co-operation in the
liberal space which they have from
time to time given for articles relat
ing to the organization.
The following is a list of the sign
ers of the contract of which I have a
record in this office. If any have been 1
left out it is my mistake and I will
be glad to correct it. Some few of
the initials may be wrong if so I will
be glad to have my attention called
to this that I may correct them:

Sends Assistants on 7,000 Mile
Looking Into Matter of National
Guard and Organized
Washington, Jan. 3.-Secretary
Weeks has directed Assistant Sec
retary Wainwright and Major Gen.
Harbord, deputy chief of staff, to
make a 7,000-mile journey through
sonic of the scattered army con
mands in the country for the pur
pose of establishing a closer rela
tionship and understanding between
those in the field service, the de
partment's executive chiefs and mili
tary officers in Washington. Other
reasons for the decision to send the
two officials, one civil and one mili
tary, on this trip were said today to
rest in the Secretary's desire for first
hand information concerning the re
gular army personnel, the National
Guard forces and members of the or
ganizdd reserves and to aid the de
partment in its task of wielding these
three components into one harmonious
Need has been felt on the part
of soni officials, despite the prog
ress made during the year just
ended, of developing the three
forces of the peace time establish
ment into a single efficient ma
chine, able in time of national
emergency to function quickly for
defensive purposes said, at the
same time, to eypand rapidly in
size. One hindrance to rapid de
velopment of the three forces along
this line, the department has found,
was the lack of understanding of
the policy and administration of
the national defense act which ex
isted between the three bodies.
The Secretary also has manifested
a keen interest in the personal
welfare of troops in the regular
army, including their living accom
modations, food, clothing, and other
equipment as well as schooling and
general treatment outside of the
routine army life. Whenever cor
rections m'ny be needed in the ex
isting order of things, it is ex
pected they will be discovered and
remedies quickly applied as a re
zult of the visit by Mr. Wainwright
and Gen. IHarbord to the points
included in their itinerary. In this
connection, it was said, the system
of courts martial and administra
tion of military justice would be
given particular attention by the
Other army activities to be given
attention by the two officers in
clude the school for officers and
men at Camp Benning, Ga., where
infantrymen are instructed in all
modern war devices. Gen. Harbord
will devote himself to a study of
the organization work of the cav
alry division now being perfected
on the Mexican border while both
he and Mr. Wainwright will inquire
carefully into the possibilities of
civilian military training. It is
planned to open instruction camps
next summer on a larger scale than
has been attempted since the war.
Preparations already are being made
in the department to accommodate
about 200,000 civilians.
The two officers will begin their
journey Saturday going direct from
here to Camp Knox, Ky. They will
arrive there Sunday and leave the
next day for Atlanta and Colum
bus, Ga.
