Chairman Simons Says He Does Not Know Just When New Institution Will be Opened?School Will Oc? cupy Whole Block?Next to Old Folks' Home. A site was provided today for the proposed industrial school for colored youths, to be operated In connection with the city school system, in the conveyance of six lots on President street, which with the city lot on the northwest corner of President and Fishburne, also to be deeded, will give a whole block, extending to Sum ter street for the establishment of the school. The scheme of providing an Indus? trial school has been under consider? ation for some time, but the board of commissioners has been working quietly. Even today, President James Simons, of the school board, had no statement to make regarding the plans, but admitted that the six lots had been bought on President street and the board would probably also be given the city lot, mak ng the complete street frontage for the school. As to the time when the ac? tual erection of the establishment will b ? begun and the charter of the In? dustrial school, Mr. Simons was not prepared to say anything. "Until we get the money, we can't tell what we are going to do," said Mr. Simons, so, it will probably be some time before the school is erected and put to use. It Is known that a short time ago, through the efforts of Mr. Simons *nd Prof. W. K. Pate, assistant sup? erintendent of schools, the sum of 110.000 was secured In the North to be used for the proposed school. The board counts upon additions to this Fund before starting the work of con itructlng the school, and it is certain that it will be at least a year or more before the school is erected and equipped. The placing of the Institution in the northwestern section of the city, ad Iclnlng the Ashley River Asylum, oth? erwise known as the "Old Folks Home," will meet with the satisfac? tion of the general public In that it will put the colored Institute next to the home for colored people and by segregation avoid any possible annoy? ances which might attach, were the colored school placed more in the heart of the city. The board of commissioners recent? ly completed the M.tchell school, the new up-town school for white child? ren, and the Industrial Institution is now to be established for the color? ed children. EXPERIMENT FARM NEEDED. Clarendon Planters Decide to Take Up Matter With Government. Manning, July 16.?The general en? thusiasm that was evidenced at the faimers" meeting held at this place yesterday to hear scientific discus? sions of agricultural topics, did not subside when the meeting adjourned. The several experts who came here to address the meeting continued to dis? cuss the meeting after the farm? ers had adjourned and left for their homes. They were all delighted with the size of the gathering and the murked interest manifested in the tuples discussed. Prof. Harper said it v. :i? decidedly the best farmers' meet? ing that he had attended in this State, and Inquired specifically as to how the meeting waa advertised and what means were used to ensure such a satisfactory attendance, saying he wished to recommend the same plan to other communities where such n:? etings may be contemplated. As a further evidence of the enthu? siasm and unity of sentiment in the town and county, the Manning board of trade today adopted a preamble :md resolutions as supplementary ol those adopted at the farmers' meet? ing, and which were published in The News and Courier this morning. It la expected that the committee appoint? ed to confer with the officials of the agricultural department In Washing? ton will leave on that mission in com? pany with Commissioner Watson ear? ly next week, and they hope to have Representative Lever, who is a mem? ber of the house committee on agri? culture, to personally aid them ir furthering the object they hav-a 1? rlew, It Is hoped that this new move on the part of Clarendon Coun< ty will be the beginning of a bettel state of affairs among the tohaccc pioducers In South Carolina. In the resolution adopted by ihn board of trade, a site of at least fif teen acres was guaranteed for an ex? periment station, and a commute? was appointed to take up the mattei with the department of agriculturt and with the senators and represunta tlves of this State. ?Foley's Honey and Tar not onlj stops chronic coughs that weaken tht constitution and develop Into con? sumption, but heals and strengthen* thd lungs.

President Would Not Consent to Striking Out Amendment When Urged by House Conferees?Rela? tions Not Pleasunt. Washington, July 15.?Slight, but unmistakable evidences of friction be? tween the President and the con? ferees in the tariff bill today began to disturb the hitherto pleasant relations existing between the White Housej and the Capitol. *^ The last effort has been made by conferees to induce the President to consent to the striking out of the corporation tax amendment without success. The President not only told Senator Aldrlch and Chairman Payne that he would not only withdraw from the position in favor of this tax, but that he was assured of sufficient votes to keep the provision in the bill and to insure its adoption in both Houses. ? Pains were taken at the White House today to make it plain that President Taft did not send for Messrs. Aldrlch and Payne on the oc? casion of last night's conference, des? pite the intimation given out in legis? lative circles that these two leade s had been summoned by Mr. Taft up? on word reaching his ears that the f corporation tax was about to be dashed to pieces on the rocks. In his talks with the Senate confer? ees regarding the bill President Taft has been met with the statement that while the conferees would be glad to do all in their power to carry out his wishes with respect to certain schedules, they stand pledged to cer? tain of their colleagues In the Senate, whose constituents are particularly interested in the items under consid? eration and cannot alter their posi? tion in support of the Senate rates un? til released from the pledges giv? en. The conferees have suggested to the President that he send personally for the Senators to whom the pledges to stand firm were given. The Presi? dent, it Is declared, has adopted this suggestion. All of those newly discovered facts have revived the talk of a possible veto by President Taft when the bill reaches him. The President has indicated to the conferees that he is particularly in? terested in securing free hides, free oil, free coal and a material reduction in the lumber schedule. He also has expressed his Interest in other sched? ules which have to do with the ne?s sarles of life. _/ A man gets nervous over proposing to a girl over his not proposing. ?

Columbia Chamber of Comercc Likes The Imposition?Other Matters of Interest. Columbia, July 16.?At the meet? ing of the executive committee of the Chamber of Commerce, President! Walker read a letter from Mr. Leon arc1 Tufts In which the latter men- j tioned having had conferences with Mr. Bennett, managing editor of the . Vashington Post, and with Editor j Potts of the Richmond Times-D!s patch. Theue papers are actively en-j gaged with The State in the effort to enlist the interest of other papers on the line of the proposed Capital high? way from Washington to Jackson? ville, via Augusta, and to Savannah. A representative of the Chamber of Commerce will next week visit Wash? ington for a conference with Mr. Bennett and Secretary Frank Weld on, relative to the matter of getting the different papers to run cars over the entire route south from Washing? ton with a view to creating greater interest in the project, and to secure accurate data along the line. The idea is for each paper to fur? nish an automobile and join in the tcur from Washington or some other point north of there to Jacksonville and return in October. It is also contemplated in this plan of procedure to hold a meeting at some point along the line, preferably a: Columbia, and organize an endur? ance test, the latter to be held prob? ably some time in December or Jan? uary. The meeting of the committee yes? terday decided to extend the visiting cars, which are to be real pathfinders, a warm and cordial welcome and re? ception. The committee also passed a reso? lution Indorsing the efforts of Insur? ance Commissioner McM aster tow? ards securing lower insurance rates for Columbia. The president of the Chamber of Commerce was author? ized to communicate with Mayor Reamer with a view to the better en? forcement of the building laws of Co? lumbia. The commltttee also decided to take up with the Chamber of Com? merce of the City of Camden the mat? tet of the supervisor of Kershaw County going to work to build a road from Camden to the county line to meet Supervisor Owens of Rlchland on his "Two-Notch" road at the county line.

Temporary Recovery Followed by Another Slump, Close Heing Week At Day's Lowest Level. New York, July 15.?The reaction? ary movement continued in the cot? ton market today as a result of fur ther realizing or liquidation, and the close was weak at a net decline of 20 to 28 points. The market opened easy at a de? cline of 6 to 17 points and sold 14 to 17 points net lower right after the call under liquidation and local bear pressure, which was promoted by ex? pectations of a break in the Texas drought and easier late cables. There was good buying at the decline, and with the western belt forecast hold? ing out no prospect for imn. ;diate rains in Texas beyond showers in the northwest, prices rallied during the late forenoon within 6 or 7 points of last night's finals, only to weaken again under a renewal of heavy selling for long account, and private wires from New Orleans reporting that the wind had shifted in a manner to sug? gest a breaking of the Texas drought before the end of the week. The mar? ket reached the lowest point of the day during the last few minutes and ciosed without any rally. Some of the large spot Interests were selling dur? ing the day and it was reported that the interior was offering new crops more freely at the 12 cent level. De? tailed weather reports showed no pre? cipitation in Texas during the past 24 hours and temperatures were as high as ever, ranging from l&O to 106 de? grees at 21 stations, but the forecast for partly cloudy weather suggested lower temperatures.
