I Robbed of His Cash.
i Spartanburg, Dec. 28.?Herbert
Baker, a farmer residing near Converse,
was held up and robbed of $63
in cash at Peter's creek bridge early
I to-Dight. He says three men attacked
him just as he entered the covered
i bridge and throwing a sack over his
head held him while they took his
money. He told his story at Converse
to-night and a posse set out from
there to catch the robbers.
Cotton Goods Situation is Unsatisfacfactory
to Mills.
New York, Jan. 1.?The year closed
with the cotton goods market
steady but quiet. Prices appear to
be firm, but they offer mills no margin
for profit on many of the staples,
while cotton rules high. In manu
facturing circles curtailment of production
is being urged and in mercantile
housese it is felt that production
is running ahead of the demand
for the time being.
Export Trade.
The volume of export trade with
China in the last weeks of the year
reached at least 10,000 bales and the
market is firm on a basis of 6 *4
cents for four-yard 56 by 60s. The
demand for ginghams and fancy wash
fabrics of sheer construction holds
good. Staple prints have sold well
and are being delivered freely for the
spring trade. Bleached sheetings are
held firm on a basis of 9 cents for
fruit-of-the- loom, but the demnad is
of a hand-to-mouth character. Colored
cottons have been sold fairly
well on the low grades, but mill
agents complain of a lack of profit at
present prices.
The Yarn Market.
The demand for plain constructions
of fine cloths is lighter and in fancy
goods, silks and cottons sell rather
better than other lines.
The cotton yarn market continues
quiet with values held fairly steady.
Of the 175,000 pieces of print cloths
sold in the last week of the year
at Fall River about 75,000 consisted
of 27 in 56 by 52s for substitute
count print. The mills in that city
are carrying comparatively small
I stocks and are discussing the need
| of curtailment when January conI
tracts begin to expire.
Regular Democrats Control Senate,
MATiicfo ftia TTmico
1' U^AVlUOiO 1'tlV AAVUUV*
Nashville, Tenn., Jan. 2.?The
fifty-seventli biennial session of the
General Assembly of Tennessee began
to-day, but little was accomplished.
The Senate, fully under the control
of the regular Democrats, perfected
oragnizatlon without difficulty, by
electing all the nominees of the
Democratic caucus, including N.
Baxter, Jr., as Speaker. The Republican
and independent candidates
were withdrawn.
In the House the situation was,
however, entirely different. The Republicans
had agreed to support the
choice of the independents for
Speaker, chief clerk and assistant
clerk. The independent Democrats
caucused in the morning and the
regulars also held a star chamber
Seven less than a quorum answered
roll call in the House, but after
some wrangling the fusionists pro- '
ceetfed with temporary organization
by electing J. Harvey Swann,
Speaker, and Fred T. Wilson, clerk. ;
The regulars' floor leader, Mr. Puryear,
objected to every move. His '
objections were all overruled.
At 3 o'clock another session was
held, with 62 members present, but 1
on motion to go into permanent organization
the regulars refrained
from voting. The fusionists, how- i
ever, proceeded to elect A. M. Leach i
permanent Speaker. The other i
members withheld their votes. Wil*?lr
ouu was cicv;icu auu. vucto. <
Cason assistant.
The fusion forces expect that ]
enough regulars will come over to- i
morrow to make a quorum. This, ;
however, is considered doubtful. ;
Half a dozen or more notices of
contest were filed by fusionists in the
House th:s afternoon, and at least
two Senat6rial seats will be contested.
The first balloting for United
States Senator may take place next
Tuesday week.
Modesty Caused Her Death.
New York, Dec. 21.?Because she
was too modest to allow the fastening
of a tourniquet about her leg, ,
Helen Gershen died at St. Vincent's
hospital to-day.
Miss Gershen accidentally stabbed !
herself in her left leg with a pair of
scissors while at work in a clothing
factory. Her fellow employes rushed
to her assistance, but she refused to
permit any one to bind the wound.
She soon fainted from loss of blood
and was hurried to the hospital. It!
was too late, however, to save her!
life, although the house surgeon said j
she would have recovered had a tour-;
niquet- been applied immediately.
Young Woman Appointed by Father
at Her Own Request.
Uniontown, Pa., Dec. 28.?Miss
Lucy Jones, a University woman and;
one of the leaders of Uniontown so- j
cietv, has been appointed a deputy;
sheriff by her father at her own re- j
Announcement of Miss Jones's new j
position came when the force of depu- j
ties presented her with a revolver, |
badge and a pair of handcuffs to-day.!
Put Through a Very Severe Crossexamination.
Saluda, Jan. 1.?John Bell Towill
was led along a rather devious path
here last Friday by C. J. Ramage in
a hearing before the clerk of the
court as to his ability to justify on a
bond he is endeavoring to make on
behalf of Andrew B. Watson in a
claim and delivery proceeding instituted
by E. Jones & Co., of Batesburg,
against A. B. Watson and Mrs.
A. B. Watson, of Hibernia.
. The examination took a rather
wide range and harked back to the
time Mr. Towill was a member of the
board of control. On the direct examination
conducted by E. L. Asbill
of Leesville, attorney for Mr. and
Mrs. Watsdn, Towill stated that he
owned real estate in Batesburg
worth some $10,000 and was mortgaged
to the extent of $2,500. He
also owned a tract of land in Saluda
county worth about $2,200 and a
half interest in a tract of 4 80 acres
in Edgefield county.
Asked as to his personal property,!
he drew out a batch of notes and
mortgages on real estate and proceeded
to introduce them in evidence.
He held one against C. P. Padgett
and F. P. Padgett, and while hand
ing this over to the clerk, remarked I
that it was for purchase money of |
the land "I inherited?no graft about
it either."
Had Others.
The notes and mortgages aggregated
about $2,500. He had others,
but, as they were about due, did not
present them. His valuation of the
real estate he owns is around $16,000,
with incumbrance of only $2,500.
He said he owned stock in The
Enterprise, the new paper just established
at Batesburg, but declined
to say how much.
He testified that there was no civil
actions pending against him except
one by C. E. Jones who was trying
to "swunk him" out of his one-half
interest in the Edgefield tract of lani.
He admitted that he was under bond
on the charge of conspiracy to defraud
the State, designated by the
witness as the "famous graft cases."
Asked if the $10,000 bond he was
placed under was the general charge
or the label case, he replied "God
knows, I don't."
On the cross-examination Mr. Ramage
asked -witness when he went on
the dispensary board. He did not recall.
"Was it as early as 1905?" He
did not know. "Was it 1904?" He
would not say. He did not recall
whether he served on the board in
1906, 1907, 1908, 1909, but said he
did not serve in 1910. Counsel then
asked witness if he would fix the
time he did serve on the board or
come within five years of it. He
answered that he would not swear as
to that.
Asked if there was not a suit
pending against him in Saluda county,
he said he had never heard of
any, "but I would not be surprised if
some dead beat don't'start one," and
he added that there was no just
cause for any.
Asked if there was not some other
charge against him besides the label
conspiracy case, witness with some
show of exasperation said, "I have
never heard of any and I have been
at every court ready for trial and
have not asked for a single postponement
and am ready now." When
told that the latter part of his statement
was irrelevant, witness looked
around the room and remarked, "I
reckon there are some around here
who want to use it."
After naming E. H. Evans and L.
W. Boykin as the members of the
board with whom he served, the witness
was asked if H. H. Evans was 1
not under indictment and he replied, j
"I have been so informed, but I have
not been informed that the powers j
that be have endeavored to prosecute
the case against him when the courts
have met at Newberry."
To the question asked by Rr. Ramage
if John Black had not been sentenced
to five years, Mr. Asbill objected,
but the witness insisted on
answering it, saying to M,r. Ramage,
"Crack your whip; I can take care of
myself, only the galled jade winces."
Memory is Poor.
Changing the line of examination,
Mr. Ramage asked witness what his
property was worth when he went
on the State board and got for his
answer "about as much as it is now."
When asked if he owned any notes
and mortgages when he became a
member of the board like he has today
the reply was he did not recall.
"Where did you get the money to
loan on these notes and mortgages?"
witness was asked, and, with some
heat, replied, "I got it like you get
yours, by working for it honestly."
In explaining how he made his
money witness said he traded in land,
speculated, merchandised and made
it in various other ways. "Altogether
whether the project looks good" was
the reply to whether he speculated in
large or small amounts, end as to
whether he speculated in cotton futures
or not was "none of attorney's

it was learned that revenue officers
made a raid a few miles from Elkin
Friday afternoon and destroyed a
large illicit distilling plant. It was
found under the home of a postmaster.
No arrests were made, but the
plant was destroyed.
The officers made the statement
that it was one of the most complete
plants they had ever seen and that
this was the first time they had ever
found one under a man's house.
Charley Lake's Accidental Shooting
Proves Fatal to Him.
Newberry, Dec. 29.?Charley Lake,
the youngest son of Dr. W. E. Lake,
who accidentally shot h.'mself through
the body, near the heart, while out
hnntine on Wednesday afternoon,
j died this morning at 11 o'clock from
the effects of the wound. Burial
will be at St. Luke's Lutheran
church, near Prosperity, on Friday.
Witness could not recall if he
| bought the two-story brick building
j in the town of Batesburg valued at
j $6,000 before or after he was on the
I State board, nor did he know as to
the six a~res in town of Batesburg.
Ready for Trial.
When asked to name parties to
whom he had conveyed' real estate in
the past two years he said he could
j not do so as "they were too numerous
j to mention." Asked how much he
; had conveyed to his wife during that
period witness replied. "I can not
I swear, because I am not in a position
I to say, some few tracts of land." In
trying to get at the value of the land
witness had conveyed to his wife
counsel asked him if he had conveyed
as much as $8,000 worth to
her, and the evasive answer was, "I
did not pay or receive from her that
much money for said property conveyed."
More than once during the exam
ination the witness emphasized the
fact that he was ready for trial in the
"famous graft case," to use his expression,
and he seemed to take delight
in saying he had never asked
for a continuance and had been at
every court since the indictment was
found against him, and he would be
there next time court met.
The examination occupied several
hours and was at times very interesting.
The hearing was continued until
next Monday.
