It WHEN WILL. DIS'T ATTORNEY f AND MARSHAL BE NAMED? If President Wilson Nominates Another for District Attorney He Reverses McReynolds. > Washington, Oct. 26.?As it becomes obvious that there is little chance of the early adoption of legislation to give the State of South v^diuuua l ? u iuiij C4ui^pcu i cuciai judicial districts, the pressure upon President Wilson to go ahead and appoint the successors of District > Attorney Cochran and Marshal J. Duncan Adams steadily increases. Some time ago the department of justice signified to the incumbents that the Administration wished to have in thei* positions men who would be in sympathy with its policies, and that for this reason the resignations of Messrs. Cochran and % Adams would be acceptable. The request was promptly complied with in both cases, and it was naturally thought that the nominations of Democratic successors would be made within a few weeks. Prompt dispatch of the business in hand was unquestionably the intention of the President and the Attorney General. But for the tremen* dous fight made by Senator Tillman when he learned that the President was about to nominate State Senator Frank H. Weston for district attorney, it is likely that the Attorney general s recommeiiuciuuii ui iui. Weston for that place and of Editor J. L. Sims, of Orangeburg, for the marshalship would long ago have * been sent to the Senate with the President's approval. Tillman Concentrates Fire. Learning what the recommendations of the Attorney General would probably be, Senator Tillman notified the department of justice of his withdrawal of the endorsement of r* } Mr. Sims, thus leaving that gentleman without any positive Senatorial backing, and proceeded to concen- 1 trate all of his strength and influ ence behind the candidacy of his I friend, J. William Thurmond, of Edgefield, for district attorney. Senator Tillman informed the department of justice that as the senior Senator he claimed the right to choose which of the two positions should fall to him, and that he would ( take the district attorneyship and relinquish the marshalship to Senator Smith. Senator Smith, however, refused to acquiesce in this arrangement, de- j daring that he would adhere to his original agreement not to oppose v Sims if the latter should be nominated. Attorney General McReynolds j recommended Wesson for district attorney and Sims for marshal, and the President was just about to nominate these two men when Senator TiUf man's impassioned protest, reinforcIed by powerful influences by no means confined to South Carolina, caused the President to agree to a delay while an attempt was made to get the Senators together by the plan to create another district attorneyship And marshalship. Poor Chance of Success. In the opinion of The News and Courier's correspondent, expressed at the beginning, this plan for two dis- , tricts never had much chance of success. It might be put through the Spnate nrpttv easilv. as both of the , South Carolina Senators favored it; | but over on the House side the situation is different. With all the arguments in favor of a new judicial district, it is a long and tedious task to induce Congress to agree to it. When Chairman Clayton, of the House committee on the judiciary, wrote to Attorney General McReynolds for an opinion as to the merit of the Aiken-Tillman bill, recently introduced and published in The News and Courier, the reply was distinctly unfavorable. Mr. McReynolds expressed the view that the business of the State did not justify the establishment of the proposed new offices at the time. While there have ^ been two districts in South Carolina theoretically since 1823, the law has provided official machinery for only one?and that condition is apt to continue for some years more. What Will Wilson Do? Now, what is President Wilson going to do? Suppose Messrs. Cochran and Adams should follow the ex ample or two or tneir nepuoncaii colleagues in the State of Pennsyl* vania, whose resignation had been submitted on request, and insist on retiring without further delay? Such a contingency would be embarrassing to the Administration. Talk is beginning to be heard again of the possibility that the President will try to cut the Gordian > knot by nominating a third man for district attorney, in spite of the known agreement of Senators Tillman and Smith that the 'former would endorse Weston, and that both | would stand for the confirmation of either of these two who might be nominated, but against the confirmation of any "dark horse." If the * I CAUGHT IX NIAGARA'S WHIRL. Rescued After Four Hours' Strug- B gle to Clear His Boat. Niagara Falls, N. Y., Oct. 24.? Over four hours in the grasp of the es whirlpool in a small motor boat,, tf Peter W. Langeard, of Detroit, was ol rescued here last night more dead cc than alive. He was taken to a hotel ?U cn the Canadian side, where it was ?( said he will be all right in twenty- b< four hours, although his nerves were tn almost shattered by his frightful ex- re perience. ni Langeard made the trip through si the whirlpool rapids from the Maid ei of the Mist landing on the Canadian ei side to the whirlpool to furnish a ti subject for a moving picture film. er He navigated the rapids safely, but when he swung into the whirl- P1 pool, driftwood clogged his boat's si: propeller and he was powerless to y< bring the craft out of the vortex, th For almost three hours he tried in m vain to clear the propeller by lean- re ing over the stern of the boat. P Time after time the prow of the fif little craft was sucked down into the to whirling waters and the stern was lifted high into the air. To the hun- a dreds that lined both shores at dusk sa it seemed that Langeard must lose w his fight. When darkness came head- Pi lights were taken from trolley cars P? along the Canadian side and in their bi glare the crowds watched Langeard's M fight for life. < * ?-* * *- - ** o - > _ 1 1, T7i j i snoruy Deiore o o ciuck rreu ri w ton, of Niagara Falls, Ont., volunteered to swim out with a life line la attached to his waist. Langeard, by this time exhausted, lav still in the Abottom of the boat which bobbed around in the vortex like a cork. The crowd, numbering nearly 1,000, cheered when Preston struck 111 f" out for the rescue. Half way out his life line became entangled in drift- 01 wood and he was compelled to return to shore. On the second attempt u* he reached the side of the boat, but feared to climb into the craft half ? filled with water. Clinging to the ^ side of the boat, he shouted to the rescuers on shore to pull. The swinging of the boat around ^ the whirlpool made the task of pulle\ ing on the line at the right moment most difficult. A pull at the wrong . time would have torn Preston away ?e or overturned the boat. The length of the water soaked line added to ! the difficulties. I P i The boat was finally maneuvered out of the danger zone and slowly ec moved to the shore. Preston was i . ! 6C given an ovation. tm I re Circular Saws of Paper fo ?:? j m Paper is at present used for all j possible purposes in the industries; d? and in all possible forms. It*has even j T1 been possible by means of compres- er sion to give it a degree of hardness th comparable with stone, so that it th can be used as building material. The latest use for paper, however, je is perhaps the most peculiar. Accord- th ing to an European journal a factory is said to exist in England which is Bi manufacturing circular saws from el paper. These paper saws are used for p< the manufacturing of fine furniture, Gi veneers md other thin plates of wood, cl which must' be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular ly saws made from drawing paper were w shown in an English exposition. The a saws were driven by an electric mo- h( tor and produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even fo by the finest steel saw. la The veneers made in this way are w so smooth that the cabinet makers fr can use them without further plan- pe ing.?Scientific American. ? ? ia President nominates any ether man ,. tii for district attorney than Weston he ^ reverses the Attorney General; if he nominates any other man than Wes ton or Thurmond, he encounters the agreement of the Senators to fight a h dark horse. As to the marshalship the situation in itself is not so in- . te volved, but it is tied up with the attorneyship. Nothing Against Them. fa There is nothing against either dc Weston or Sims personally?a fact which makes it more difficult to de- n( prive them of their present advan- H tage. o^ The outlook is by no means en- "j couraging for a speedy or amicable in solution of the mess, which began cc months ago when Senator Smith re- of sented the action of Senator Tillman in announcing the endorsement of a H candidate for each place?the attorneyship and the marshalship? m without obtaining the acquiescence Sc of the junior Senator.

"Well," says Augustus Horn, workan, the finder of the lost jewels of bulous value, "I thought they were lly marbles." Today the "marbles" are locked ) in the strongest safe in Scotland ard. And the humble workman who | und them may share in the $50,)0 reward which was offered for eir recovery. And all London is excited about 1 e story?a story as wildly improb>le as the wildest detective tale 'er imagined. It was back in July that a Paris iweier sold the pearls, sixty-four all, to Max Mayer, a London jewel 'oker. They constituted the most jrfect and precious necklace in the orld. On July 15 the Paris jeweler maill them in a simple packet addressl to Mayer. The next day Mayer ceived the packet, opened it and und a few lumps of sugar?nothing ore! Scotland Yard detectives were tzed by the mystery of the theft, hey formed an alliance with seval clever diamond brokers, and e month-long detectives' battle in e dark began. It was jewel dealer pitted against wel dealer, with pearls worth more an half a million for the stake. Finally, late in August, Samuel randstatter, one of the Paris jew ers in alliance with the London | )lice, got into touch with Leisirj utwirth, an Austrian diamond merlant, resident in London. Gutwirth said he had an enormousvaluable necklace in his possession, hich had fallen into his hands* "in very artistic manner," and which } was anxious to sell. Brandstatter began negotiations r its purchase. He saw the neckce in the hands of Joseph Grizzard, bom Gutwirth introduced as a iend, and he bought two of the ;arls for $20,000. The sale of the rest of the neckce for $140,000 was being negoated with Gutwirth when the pole suddenly nabbed him and four ' his friends. They hoped to find the necklace \ the possession of the men. But ey found nothing. The case remained as big a mys ry as ever. Then one morning recently, Auguss Horn, piano back maker, left his mily of four in the north of Lonm and started to work as usual. In the gutter of St. Paul's road he )ticed a small brown paper packet, e picked it up, opened it and found rer fifty beads of various sizes? narbles" he called them and laughgly offered to trade them with a; >mpanion for the price of a mug ' ale. But the offer was refused, and orn examined his find again. A few moments later an excited an startled the police officials in jotland Yard. He asserted that ? had found the lost pearl necklace!

Today, with the pearls and the leged thieves in their hands, the )lice are as much at sea as ever as i how it all happened.
