Ar TO TABULATE THE RETURNS MEETING OF THE STATE BOARD OF CANVASSERS. The*embers oj tlid Board, Treasurer Jen. niags* Expected, had Failed to Conte the Day Beforq Because Each one Thought he Would, not Missed--Two Young Ladies to Tabu late the Re turns. [News and Courier.] Oolumbia, Nov. 14.--The State board of canvassers met today, every member having come in except Sec. rotary of State Cooper, wvho is under stood to be sick. Lieutenant (Gov ernor Tillman;-vho was telegraphed for yesterday, was also on hand, and with mlemb)ers of the b)oardl present, held a meeting mn accordance with the law, when the board does not meet at the proper time. The board did nothing special beyond provid ing for the tabulation of the returns, which, thougii- small in numbers comparatively; will take some time to handle. Miss Dwviht., of the attorney gen oral's 'office, and1 Miss Walker, of the Secretary of State's office, were appointed clerks .to tabn late the vote. The reason for the * members not being on band yester day was one that is aptly illustrated by the saying, what is every body's business is nlobody's4. 1Each of the members thought that every other member would be on hand and that h is presence would be unnecessary *the consequence being that no one, excepting the State treasurer, was there. The board adjourned for two weeks to await the tabulation. - NO MEETINoI ON APPOINTED DAY. * Col umubia, Nov. 1 3.--The evils of official absenteeism were never more positively showvn than they were to day, when the State boardl of can vatssers could niot meet to declare the - osult of the recent (hPction because only one member wvas present Such nieglect of a most im portant dnty is inexplicable.

Washington, November 17.-For the first time in history the President: of the United States has set apart a room adjoining his own offices for the exclusive use of the press. In the new office building, west of the White House, the correspondents have a separate room, provided with a huge oak table, chairs and three telephones for their convenience. The room adjoins the big central waiting room, where all.callers gath. er before they are admitted to the office of the President or Secretary Cortelyou. The door of the presR room stands open, and the man of consequence inf politics, business or rank-who escapes without being interviewed is fleet of foot indeed. In the White House, before it underwent its remodelling process, when the President and his clerical force were all quar.tered on the second floor, the newspaper men whose duty took them there had to content theinselves with a table placed at the eastern end of the gen. eral waiting room. They had no telephones at their disposal, and when they wished to call up their respective offices were obliged to go into the "war room" and ask Col. Montgomery's permission to use the wire. Col. Montgomery's telephone was often busy at the very time the newspaper men wished to use it. Now, with the thr'ee telephones at band, Col. Montgomery's dignity will uo be so frequently. disturbed, and the business of sending important "items'' to the uttermost ends of the aarth wvill be greatly facilitated. President. Roosevelt holds, perhaps, more than any of his predecessors, a warm place in his heart for the newvspapecr fraternity. He has ap pointed several of his, newspaper friends to good position~s ini the pub. lie service. He is exce'edinigly ap proacihable anid ofton favors the cor responidets with his political conil dlences. When the new office build. ing was platined it was quite natu ral, therefore, that the President abonld order a "press room"~ in the most convenient location and of the most commodions arrangement possi ble with the appropuiation at hand.

Today is the time required y law for the vote to be canvassed. rhe' members of the board are the 3ecretary of State, the comptroller general, the attorney general, the idjutant general, the State treas urer, and chairman of the committee ?n elections of the house, who is this instance is Mr. R. 0. Patterson, of Barnwell. When the time came for the board to peet only one member appeared State Treasurer Jennings. The law provides that four members shall 3onstitute a quorum, but even these 3ould not be obtained today. The Act further provides that in case a luorum is not present then the lieu ~enant governor shall be summoned md he with tbe members present shall proceed to declare the vote. [Lieutenant Governor Tillman was .oday, therefore, duly notified by elegraph that his presence was iceded in Columbia and it is ex eoted that he will arrive tomorrow. It is said, though, that it will nake no particular difference wheth ar he gets' here tomorrow or next lay or two weeks, so he does come n1 a reasonable time, provision being nade for his possible absence- from he State. When he does come he md Treasurer Jennings will form. 11ly declare the vote. While it is certain that this neg oct on the part of the State officials ivill result in no harm to those State >fficers who have been rebently ilected, they having no opposition, mud while the same thing may be sid as to those congressmen who pill have no contests on hand, it is sonceivable that such an outcome will do those congressmen .or those :ounty officers who had oppositioni o good, to say the least of it, and t can be easily understood how such songressmen may be embarrassed in iolding their seats when the case is shown up in a Republican congress. No explanation is given here why hose officials were away. Attorney i*eneraml Bellinger went to Barn well ~o attend court in the Free case, but A. is held that he should have come L)ac'k for the more important dluty.

I Young Girl bles in New York Hospitil After Continuous Sleep of Twenty Days. [Augusta Chronicle.] Some days ago was published an account of the mysterious case of Nellie Corcoran in St. Vincent's hos pital, New York. For days she had lain in a sound sleep and no effort to a':ouse her had succoeded. The girl fell into her state of un consciousness October 18 at the house t where she was employed as a servant. t At the hospital where she was taken ' heroic efforts to determine the cause of her condition met with t little success. Hundreds of physi. C cians examined her, and every known method was tried to awaken her, but C with little success. Twvo or t,hree C times she was aroused and spoke ar few words, saying she was sleeping and again became unconscious. Electricity was applied and in se vere applications, b)ut ineffectively. Neurologists and pathologists tried ' to diagnose the girl's condition, but r could not. Specialists of nearly i every medical field were called in,t but they arrived at no conclusions as to the cause of the comas or its proper diagnosis. It was even su1ggested -i that someone had by pnotized her and efforts to throwv off such a spoii wvere made, but to no0 purpose. 1Her temperature increasedi rapidly, she i became emaciated1 anid finally stopped C breath ing, after having slept 20 days. i There was an autopsy, but nothing was discovered in the condition of d the organs to account for the strange 6 sleep. The brain was kept for ex- 1 amination by specialists on that or gan and it is believed the secret wvill C be dliscovered there.

[News and Courier.] The negro, Bostick, arrested in Ldgefield, charged with incendiar sm, was brought bore and is now afely lodged wit Lin the penitentiary. 'he story that his captors brought. iere is, howerer, considerably differ nt from tba one published. One of he captors said that the sheriff iu endad to board thetrain at Trenton 7ith the negro, but hearing that a aob was coming after him, he took o the woods and made a long, tedi 'us, circuitous route, coming to (Jo umnbia via Branchville. One of t.he! aptors said this routo was taken in rder to "avoid Jim Tillman and his sob," asserting that they had heard,1 n what they believed to be reliable uthority, that the lieutenant gov rnor was leading a crowd bent on ynching the negro. Whether there ras anything in the story or not, the egro's captors believed it, else they rould not have taken such precau. ions to elude the lyniching party.
