Young Strikers Win Point. Cleveland, O., Nov. 7.?The 40C boy and girl strikers who have left West high school a practically deserted building since Wednesday', will return to their studies tomorrow morning. This decision followed a conference of the strikers' committee with the school board tonight and the children regard the result as a victory for them. A deputation of fathers and mothers, appointed from the Parents league, will appear before the school council tomorrow night to present in full the arguments against a double session plan. They will support the plea of the youngters that an afternoon session takes away the chance of schooling of those whe must work half the day to earn their education. The strikers have kept up their regular studies during the strike, and will, they say, recite their back lessons at the opening of school. This prevents the threatened strike at South, Glenville and other high schools still adhering to the double sessions. Farmers Fight for Liquor.

Ansel has received another QO by appeal for leniency upon the negro )1_ G. W. Murray, who has been convictin ed of forgery and is a fugitive from rs justice. . There is also against him a ?' charge of perjury. be In 1904 Murray, an ex-congress>y man and a negro of means, was th convicted of forgery. When the suly preme court decided against him, Murray fled the State and forfeited of to the county his bond of $2,500. Sometime ago his whereabouts were learned and Gov. Ansel was asked for requisition papers to bring Murray back from Chicago. The I governor of Illinois has not declined _ to honor the requisition, but he has st held the matter in abeyance tempoT_ rarily. In the meantime petions have " been sent to Gov. Ansel asking him to recall the requisition papers. Ex ^ tra papers have also been filed. ^ The Sumter county men who signed p the petion received are: E. E. Rembert, W. H. Seale, H. J. Harby, W. jD A. Bowman and H. J. McLaurin, M. D. The petition says in part: " W. A. Bowman, one of the underJd signed, was foreman of the jury J(j which convicted Geo. W. Murray; W. d H. Seale was supervisor of Sumter county at the time of the trial and d conviction of Murray, and the other undersigned are large property own- 1 ers in Sumter county. "Murray's whereabouts were >d known, but he was allowed to forfeit [a his bond, pay the same and stay away 7Q with the tacit understanding that he was not wanted in Sumter county. "We now represent to your exr_ cellency that the best citizens of Sum}(l ter county do not want Murray brought back here. Without com el ment upon the question as to his con,0 viction, the fairness of the charges rl or anything of that sort, it appears )y to us that it would be for the great j disadvantage of the white people of je Sumter county to bring Murray back ir and have him undergo his term of imprisonment. If this is done, Murray will be looked upon in the light of a martyr by the negro population." la Charged With Murder. cL ty Aiken, Nov. 8.?Arthur Clark, a e- negro, charged with murder in this county in 1906, has been arrested and is is now in the Aiken jail to await trial, is Clark was arrested in Savannah some is | days ago and Sheriff Rabon went down and got the negro and brought to him to Aiken Sunday night. He is a- charged with the murder of Phillip =r Thomas at North Augusta, in Decemie ber, 1906. Thomas was shot by ia Clark at the house of Minnie Parker, i- in North Augusta, and died several r- days later. The records of the county show that the inquest was held e- ! over the body of Thomas on Decemid j ber 17, 1906, and the shooting octn curred several days previous, as he >n ! did not immediately die after being I wounded.
