Columbia. Nov. 25 -There is a ser?

Columbia, S. C., Nov. 28 -Hoy
Hayes, the young mountaineer con
cern ing whose commutation of th<
death sentence there was so rune!
feeling engendered throughout tb?
State recently, aud which act of tb<
governor inspired a red-hot petitioi
from Hayes' county, Oconee, asking
the governor to resign, presents th?
unique situation-unique fer thii
State at least-of a man being denice
a pardon for fear of bis being lynched.
At least it is the understanding
among Hayes' friends that the govern?
or is sufficiently well satisfied that thc
young man is innocent of the crime
for which he was sentenced to hang,
is convinced, as practically everybody
else, who has studied the testimony
and other records in the case, that he.
did not murder his young bride but
that she commirtpd suicide, bot it is
nrged that feeling in certain parts o?
Oconee is still so strong against the
young man that there would be grave
danser of lynching if he were to re?
turn there now. Hayes expects and
probably will get a full pardon within
six months or a year, but harldy be?
fore that time. Up to a few days ago
he was not compelled to put on prison
garb and was not required to do bard
labor. But in order to allay dissatis?
faction among the other prisoners be
has now been put in stripes and is
working along with other convicts in
the knitting mill. The governor con?
tinues to get ietters from various
parts of the state commending his
coursa in commuting Hayes' sentence.
A preminent Occnee man who heard
all of beth trials and who is intimate?
ly acquainted with every other matter
connected with the case, was here to?
day, and in a chat with your corres?
pondent related an interesting inci?
dent of the case which has escaped ail
of the newspapers. According to this
gentleman the strong proud ice against
young Hayes which has now spread to
all iarts of the county, and which has
been communicated to neighboring
con? ties and found expression m their
newspapers, had its origin about tour
years ago in a misunderstanding
among the members of Return baptist
church, where Hoyt Hayes and his
wife attend services and Sunday
school. The feeling against Hoyt,
this gentleman says, was mostly in?
herited from his father,who was close
in money matters, but as is frequent?
ly characteristic of such men just awd
strickly honest and reliable. A new
building was desired, and those at tbe
bead of affairs in the church decided
to make assessments iu proportion to
the amour t of property held by the j
members, being guided in making out
the bills by the auditors tax returns. ;
They assessed t tie father of Hoyt on
a ba^is of $2,000. and ignoren bi*
prote-t t*?at this was nnjnst inasmuch
as there was a mortgage for gi,nu? on
tbc tract of land ht- owned^ond that h?
ebor, ld tot be a sse ssed on a basis of
mere than the net value of bu* pro- j
pery. The contentions lead to es- !
ti^iigenienfc and bitterness which was
followed by tbe old man leaving the
neighborhood in disgust and settling
at Westminister. He left ahon? 50
acres apiece to bis three children in
the Return neighborhood, and ail but
Hoyt are living there now.
Mr. R. T. Jaynes of counsel for
Haye?, hero attending the supreme
court recently, told me of the great
difficulty he experienced in getting
specimens of the dead woman's hand?
writing. The case, it will be remem?
bered turned on whether the note
found in the room where the body lay
and which declared that the woman
killed herself because she dreaded th
pain of childbirth, was written by th
woman or forged by the husband.
Specimens were submitted by Mrs.
Hayes father, Mr. Crane, at the first
inquest, at which two of her sisters
testified that according to their judg?
ment the note was in their sistter's
handwriting. This investigation re?
sulted in a/ verdict of suicide. The
two specimens of handwriting were
never again seen ; the coroner says he
gave them to Crane, but Crane says
that official left them on the able and
that they probably got lost. Finally
after much anxios waiting and inquir?
ing it was learned that there were
spcimens in the possession of the
dead woman's cousin, Miss Julia
Crane, who lived in another part of
the county. The sheriff secured them
before he told her for which side he
wanted them.
The young woman for whom the
prosecution in its effort to provide a
motive says frayes bad an attachment,
offered to go on the stand, Mr. Jaynes
says, but the story of their alleged at?
tachment was considered so far-fetch?
ed that the defense thought it un?
necessary to cause her the embarrass?
ment. She was engaged to Hoyt np
to a short time before his marriage,
but they were simply friends after
that. There was no gossip about them
although they lived within a few
miles of each other, friends and rela?
tives and neighbors of both Hoyt and
his wife.
Sumter's Festival.
Comparisons are odious to those
suffering by the parallel an they may
not always be 6o effective as a simple
statement of facts, so in making this
brief mention of the Sumter Fall Fes?
tival we will endeavor to refrain from
comparison. One very important dis?
covery was made this week by the
thousands of pepole who visited Sum?
ter and that is that when the very
best of the spirit called.hereabouts
'"the Atlanta spirit" is wanted the
sample may be drawn from a South
Carolina town. That is the spirit of
enthusiasm, of united action of liber?
ality, of all pulling together with in?
dividual subordination for the public
good. That is what they learned in
Sumter and that explains why the
Sumter of today is absolutely unrecog?
nizable as the litle town when last
seen by the writer. ?
The people of Sumter contributed
*3,5CO dollars to pay tho expenses of
this fall festival-it was not drawn ont
of them with tbe aid of a block vand
tackle but was in reality "contribut?
ed." Almost at the. sume time, we
are informed, about as much rnore>
money was raised by subscription for
other non-coupon clipping purposes in
which there was popular pride -and
on Thursday when there were thou?
sands of strangers iu the cit}' Sumter's
stores were closed. It was a real
public festivity with no money-mak?
ing features attached. "Hov? do these
people expect to get their money
back?" asked a CoJsSmbian. Maybe
they don't expect n^but if it does
not do them more good than drawing
8 per cent, interest we will be aston?
ished. They have inspired them?
selves, pleasantly surprised their old
friends and made manv new ones.
And is that not worth the cost? The
self confidence gained and the enthu?
siasm aroused are worth more to Sum?
ter than can be measured in dollars
and cents.
The horse show on Wednesday was
such an astonishing success that it
will probably be made a regular an?
nual affair. The people of the county
did not realize their wealth in horse
flesh until the animals, were brought
together. The immediate effect will be
to stimulate the breeding and owning
of even a better grade of horses
throughout Sumter county. That is a
distinct and substantial accomplish?
ment of the festival.
The business and professional mon
of Sumter forgot their vocations dur?
ing the festival' and became ho3ts of
the public. Good spirit, good nature
and hospitality were marked features.
It was a great, jolly crowd from the
governor down to the "trusties" from
the State farm. Sumter is to be con?
gratulated : 4&outh Carolina is to be
congratulatd on having Sumter secure
within her borders. May tbe tribes of
Sumters multiply and increase ex?
ceedingly within the Palmetto State.

St. Petersburg, Nov. 28.-The fol?

Russians Begin Bragging Again.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 28.-The Min?
istry of the Marine has published a
table representing the Russian naval
strength in far East to be forty eight
vessels, including the Baltic fleet, and
Japanese strength is placed at 25 ves?
sels. The statement adds that victory
is consequently assured to the Russian
Ksn^aroo and Buffalo.
A curious contest between a kanga?
roo and a buffalo took place in a large
zoological park in the north of Eng?
land. The two animals, after breaking
loose from their inclosure, met face to
face in an open space in the park.
Without any preliminary quarrel, the
bull made a furious onslaught on the
kangaroo, which at first contented it?
self with an endeavor ta avoid the
After a few moments, however, the
bull's attentions became altogether too
personal to pass unrebuked, and, using
its iwofs as battering rains, the kan
gai\)o belabored the buffalo in the most
effective manner. Roaring and bel?
lowing, the irate buffalo made repeated
attempts to gore its antagonist to
death, but with scant success, the kan?
garoo proving a most "slippery" foe.
The fray waxed furious for over an
hour, at the end of which time the
buffalo retired, not before, however,
its carcass bore unmistakable signs
of the kangaroo's attentions.
Musician* and Reptile?.
"Doesn't that organist look like a
lizard?" said the biologist.
The music rolled forth in great, sweet
waves, and. rapt before his huge in?
strument, very still, his head, with its
long hair, thrown back, the organist
did indeed resemble a lizard remark?
"Musicians - great musicians - have
much in common with reptiles," the
biologist went on. "In all the animate
kingdom only reptiles are sensitive to
music, and only birds, which are noth?
ing but feathered reptiles, make music.
"Birds are reptiles that have put
forth wings and feathers. They sing,
and the windless, featherless reptiles
san*.:, too. at one time, it is said. And
they still, tile wingless ones, maintain
a fondness for song. Snakes and liz?
ards will come forth readily from their
retreats to listen to music."-New York
BritJtfli Military Bull?.
It has often been demonstrated that !
?ie schoolmaster is needed among the !
British otficers. Some queer, (juaint of- j
forts at composition have been made '
in brigade orders. A certain major or- j
dained not long ago ibis: -Reveille i

pando at 1 a. m. The brigade will !
move at 4:15 a. m. The sun will rise '

war of lliOI-02, after the building of !
the blockhouses, that it became neces- ;
sary to check the habit of the men of j
sleeping outside the blockhouses for I
the sake of coolness aud comfort. A j
certain staff office.* thereupon issued !
the following quaint order: -No one is j
permitted to sleep outside the block- :
houses except the sentries." Though
the intention of this order ls clear, its
phraseology is not, "Men on outpost

Sumter ai Its Best.
In these days, when every village
in the South is having its "Carni?
val," che festival iu Sumter is not to
be confused with the ordinary street
shows. Sumter with its six or seven
thousand inhabitant?, situated near
thecentr8 of South Carolina as well as
in the heart of an agricultural region
as rich as any m this country, is a
community with a citizenship meas?
uring in public spirit to what its en?
vironment demands.
Ten years ago a celebration was
given at Sumter in the face of com?
mercial conditions, which, to the pes?
simists, threatened the business health
of the town. It was such a success
and such an event in the civic life of
South Carolina as to put to silence
and shame every voice that croaked as
to Sumter's future. The festival now
at its height in Sumter marks the
floodtide of the Gamecock City's
splendid and rejoicing prosperiy.
Understanding to the full the pre?
sent strength and growth of their city
and its tributary country, and with
adequate conception of the expansion
which the future promises, the people
of Sumter opened their purses to pro?
vide ,a celeration which cannot but
focus general attention. While this
festival is what might be expected of
such a town, it is not less in its cost,
in is scope and its attractions than
those usually given in cities of the size
of Charleston and Savannah. The
festival, therefore, is a striking and
impressive as well as auspicious event,
and it is only natural that all the
towns in a radius of a hundred miles
should participate with pride and
enthusiasm in what their sister com?
munity is so splendidly achieving.
On this Thanksigving morning
when Sonth Carolina is gladdened in
ev?ry county with such material
prosperity as has perhaps not hereto?
fore been known in our history, the
metropolis of the State in the midst of
its own ' festivities congratulates its
commercial ally and friend in senti?
ment a few miles to the north.-News
