Drainage Survey 3Com Retained in <
Appropriation Bill.
Washing;on, March i C..?In the
last hours of the debate on the ngri\T
cultural appropriation hill, the pro- .
vision for the drainage survey work i
of the department of agriculture, in i
which Southern South Carolina is.;
very much interested, was saved by ?
the energetic work of Representative ;:
Lever. The section was at first turn- 1
ed down by a yea and nay vote, but ]
> Mr. Lever demanded a count by tel- i
lers, and the result was the retention j 1
of the section by a majority of one, s
the vote being 40 to 41. i
California Bill Defeated.
To-day Mr. Lever made the most
effective speech in the long debate | s
which ended in the overwhelming ;
0 defeat of the bill of Representative 1
Raker, of California, to relieve the ;
Hvdro-Electric Company, of that <
State, from the burden of the stat- ]
* utes applying to other companies <
r' using the public domain, and requir- i
ing these companies to operate un- 1
der permit, regulations and annual i
payment of fees to the government. 1
Mr. Lever argued that this effort of 1
the California company was a covert
attempt to set a precedent, through 1
which in the future all power devel- '<
opment companies would claim the ]
right to use the public domain with- s
out regulation and without the payment
of fees. <
Receives $40 Telegram. 1
The South Carolina member spoke 1
for a half an hour with great earn- i
* estness and received much applause.
An interesting incident of Representative
Lever/s speech was his citation
of the fact that among the great
numbers of telegrams and letters he (
had received urging him not to opposce
the Raker bill, was a telegram, (
800 words long, costing $40 to send,
which came from a city 3,500 miles 1
away from the territory in which
the Hydro-Electric Company, of Cali- |
^ fornia, operates. He said that when '
a $40 telegram was sent from a place 3
3,500 miles away in the interest of
a measure relieving somebody of a 1
payment of $75 a year, mere musi
t be something more in the matter than (
what appeared on the face of it.
Representatives Cooper and Kopp,
v of Wisconsin, and Mr. Raker himself
asked Mr. Lever to say who had sent
the telegram and the South Caro- (
linian stated that it came from F. 1
W. Wagener & Co. of Charleston, '
one of the most prominent commer- 1
cial firms in his State. The speaker 1
disavowed any feeling against the
Wagener Company and said that he '
? made use of their telegram merely
as an illustration of his argument.
Attempt to Burn Store. 1
Wednesday night the store of J. E. 3
Byrd on Main street was entered by
burglars and an attempt was made to (
^ burn the building, probably in an effort
of the marauders to hide their
crime. The store was entered
through a rear window in the millin- *
ery department, the fastening the '
* shutters being broken and the sash
raised. Thursday morning the tracks
made by a buggy were found beneath
the window, giving the oiriy
clue to the probable plan of the robbers
to haul off a quantity of goods.
The store was ransacked, goods being
tumbled about considerably, but
Mr. Byrd has not yet been able to
estimate the amount of his loss.
The plot to burn the building was
well laiu, and it is nothing short of a
. miracle that the fiends did not succeed.
Kerosene or other oii was
sprinkled about the piles of clothing
in the clothing department and in
the millinery department a lamp was j
ft lighted, with the chimney removed, c
and placed on the floor beneath a rack t
filled with ladies' cloak's. Thirteen j
of these were burned or so badly c
damaged that they were rendered be- i
yond repair. Some of the woodwork c
on the shelving in the same room s
was scorched, indicating that an at- t
tempt was made to start a fire in two (
places.?Branchville Journal. c

Wellesley college girls have made c
out a list of don't which they are i
trying to live up to. We commend t
them. They are: r
"Don't flirt with the handsome ^
young fellow down town. His wife i
may not like it.
''Don't go through the village c
streets chewing candy or anything t
else. If you must chew, try the rag.
"Don't retire with undrawn cur- \
tains. The rubber industry flourish- t
es in other places than South Ameri- z
ca. s
"Don't believe the village chap z
that tells you he loves every hair on ?
your head. He probably means every t
? one on your bureau. i
~ "Don't be a freak. The squirrels c
have enough nuts to attend to now. s
"Don't study too hard. Your c
friends might think you are going to
work for a living.
"Don't kiss each other in public. ?
It's awful to see a woman doing a 1
man's work."

Honest Anderson Man. U
Anderson, March 16.?It is not of:en
that a man pays, all at once, r;
State and county taxes for a period B
if nine years, yet that is just what B
?vas done by a Williamston township J
nan here Thursday afternoon.
In some way his name had failed J|
:o appear on the tax books since j?
1902. He had made no return, and 8
io one had done so for him since B
:hat time. And, of course, no execu- H
lion was ever issued, for the reason B
ihat, so far as the tax books were 8
loncerned, there was no record that B
such a man existed. B
Thursday afternoon he called on
Auditor Jas. H. Craig and explained |
:he situation, making returns for B j
iach of the nine years since he had I |
ast paid taxes. He had met adver- fl
sities, he said; his children had been B
11; he was hard pressed for money; j|
10 one came to him to make collec- B
:ion; no executions were ever issued |j
md the taxes were not paid. 1
During the past few years, he said B
le had begun to "get on his feet," If
igain, and wished to "straighten out g
:he account." And he did. He is g
lot a man of a great deal of proper- ||
:y; just a little personal and poll, ||
in which he paid for four years? II
letween the time he was 46 to 50 5
rears old.
After these items had been all set:led
up, Treasurer C. W. McGee issued
his receipt the man called again I
it the office. m
"By the way," he said "I'm liable m
;o road tax, too, and I want to pay m
;hat while I'm at it." W
The amount was figured out, and rc
;he extra cash paid over, making the |?i
;otal taxes paid $22.95. Not a great 11
leal of money for taxes covering a |?
jeriod of nine years; but enough to
iut the tax-payer straight with the 81
State and county, and to make him v
'eel that he had done what honesty f
irompted him to do. '
Executive Committee Meeting.
Columbia, March 14.?Gen Wilie
Tones has issued a call for a meeting rn
)f the State executive committee, to II
)e held in Columbia April 10, at 8 u
). m., for the purpose of issuing a V
;all for the State convention. The \
neeting was called for April 10 in *
)rder to allow the members who desire
to stay over for the unveiling of
he monument to the women of the
Confederacy, on April 11, the ne\t
lay. i
According to the rules or tne pary,
the Democratic clubs will meet j
)n April 27 for the purpose of electng
delegates to the county conveniens,
which meet at noon on May 6.
The county conventions elect delegates
to the State convention, which j
neets on May 15 at noon.
All that the executive committee
?an do on April 10 is to make out
:he call for the State convention,
vhich is purely a formal matter. In
new of the fact that the expenses of
he committee are paid, which
imount to some ?400, it has been
suggested that the rules should be
tmended, doing away with this, and
tllowing the chairman to make oat
he formal call. The county chairnen
make out the calls for the
jounty conventions, and it has been
suggested that the State convention
