UFT W0RKIN8 ON TARIFF.
UK CONFKH8 WITH HKPUHMCAN LKADKHS. Mr. Tuft II ?|h?s Tlmt the Report of The Conferee* Will I touch the Howe on Tuesday?lie hi Still Standing Finn on the Free Hide Question? The Presidents \ tew of Desirable Downwnrd ltet Ulon. Washington. July 2 a.?Sunday brought no cessation of President Taft s tariff activities. He had a con? ference with house and senate lead era, which covered practically the en tlra day. Even the customary Sun eajr afternoon ride through tho parks araa cancelled. Although he admitted frankly to some of his callsrs today that the sit aatlon waa not all that could be de afcred. the president expressed the hope that anothsr twenty-four hours would suffice to straighten out the tangle In the conference, and that the report of the conferees would be pre? sented In the house on Tuesday next. It further Is hoped at the White Heaas that the report will be accom? panied by a definite plan of action, which will be acquiesced In by the house and the senate, and that con greas may adjourn by the last of the President Taft. It was learned to? day, has not receded in any way from Ma demand for free hides. He Is au? thentically represented as regarding free hldea aa a typical case underlying Use whole principle downward re? vision, and If free hides should be lost Utile of encouragement to the real re? visionists remains. Just how the hoot, shoe and finish? ed leather schedule In the tariff Mil are to be revised, whsn there are no difference* between house and senate for the confereea to act upon, was one at the pussllng subjects under dlsous aton at the White House today. Al? though some o* the house leaders are teeth to establish the precedent, they have Informed the president that It would be entirely possible for the oenferees arbitrarily to change the leather ?chedule to the lower prices .agreed upon In the bargain 'for free hide*, and that the change could be ;protected in tho house against an in ifritable point of order by the adop ittoa of a rule providing that points of order should not He against that '.particular Item. The only question then would be rhe whipping into line at a majority of the members to sup? port the adoption of the rule. The president has hoard considerable talk as* the strength ?f the "Insurgentt" in the house and their threats to defeat each a rule. Bt if the leaders consent to the plan It Is believed it can easily eb carried through. It can definitely be stated that the president's chief concern now Is as to hides. The other schedules apparent? ly are being worked Into acceptable Shape, according to his Information. *ad once the free hide and reduced leather goods programme has been agreed upon, the end of the fight Is in ?lew. President Taft, according to t'lose who have talked most Ir hmately with htm. does not suffer the delusion that revision of the tariff downward Is go lag to bring reduced prices or would he of Immediate benefit to the much talked about "ultimate consumer." Instead of a reduction, It Is declared, that there will be actual Increases daring the coming year og# many of the necessaries of life, Including wearing spparel. An advance of 22 to 2(. per cent in the price of woolen goods already has been announced, despite the fact that Pa change whatever has been made ta the woolen schedule. This sched? ule, the president has been told, will not permit of a reopening at this time. It la a closed Incident as re? gards the conference, and there Is aothtng up>n which a reopening could be fastened as a "rider." In discussing this phase of the situ? ation with callers today, the president took occasion to at plain In SOWS de? tail his theory o' the principle of downward revision from a pro! tiofii i i.'.int of ni. w. The Idea is no ta reduce duties to the polnl '?f affect" lag home indu?ti h??? ??r t<> admit Im parta to what, from the Republican standpoint, would be unfair coup. tltion with home-made articles, *p, president Is represented nx regard I nv down wird revision rn? <>f \>r>< tectlng tli ?le from monop ,'\ ? execesslvelv high pt Ice*. ||e ?um me I up ? . t heory of t revision as n >t --. much to hrtPJ atMiut Iggsnedtetel) lowi ericas to ths consumi-r. teil t.. i1 * >11? < i ti..< ronsuiM er from eaorbitasii prleee which might b* posnlb1?- behind a tariff w ill tn;iin talaed at an eac?--?.??ive h?l?ht.

Mr. Taft^has cited tho k instance of champagne. It would be prac.lcally Impossible to make the duty on champagne prohibitive and so a high duty is levied upon the wine, not as a matter of protection, but solely for the purpose of revenue. The president has declared that he believ es the Just comparison to be one of gopds upon which the duty has been lowered. Even if the duty is not lowered sufficiently to admit of Im? ports upon a large scale, the presi? dent is said to feel that in lowering the tariff on articles of general use and consumption a great gain has been made. CAROLINIAN' SUCCEEDS AUKOA'\ HARDWARE MEN TO CHAKLUS TON. Mr. Is I?. Dantzler, of Orangeburg, Is Made Assistant Professor In Leip? zig University. Orargeburg. July 22.?The friends of Mr. I* L>.

A letter from Prof. Dantzler to his father tells of his election to an as? sistant professorship in the University of Leipzig, Germany. Mr. Dantsler spent two years in the University as a student several years ago, after which he returned here and filled for two years the chair of French and Ger? man in the South Carolina Military Academy. A year ago he returned to Leipzig and completed his course, and has now been elected a member of Its faculty.

Curious Prediction of President of Harrard College. Cambridge. Mass. July 22.? Charles W. Eliot, president emeritus of Harvard, In an address before the Harvard Summer School of Theology, today phophesled the advent of a new religion. "It will not be nound by dogma or creed," he said. "Its workings' will be simple bu'. its Held of action limitless. Its discipline will be training in the development of co-opesatlve good will. It will attack all forms of evil. There will be no supernatural el. ment; It will place no reliance on any? thing but the laws of nature. Preven tlon will ;:>e the watchword and a skill (1 surgeon one of its members. "The new religion." he said, "will not be based upon authority. The fu? ture generation Is to be led. not dt.v en.

J. Cun-j nlngham Is one of Chester County's ' farmers who is always endeavoring to find and apply the best and m<>st modern ideas In farming, and a visit j to his farm, a little more than a mile west of the city, is always interesting and refreshing. It was the writer's! prlvelege Friday to accompany Col. Cunningham over a large part of the plantation and see what is going on. Col. Cunningham is, above ail things else, a scientific farmer?not j a farmer who jumps from Idea to idea in mad succession in the futile hope of finding something more suc? cessful than the old beaten tracks? but a farmer who is actuated by good, sound reason, and who plants one crop one year and another the next on the same piece of land, because the soil demands a certain succession of crops, and because certain crops following each other in a certain suc? cession build up the soil. It follows, therefore, that one sees on this farm no vast acreage of cotton, and cotton alone, but diversaflcation and a gen? eral assortment of the crops that this section of the South is best adapted for. Col. Cunningham is giving his attention largely this year to hay, and the many acres of fertile meadows on his home place and the 275 acre^ that he is farming on the opposite side of the road are yielding him a golden harvest of fine hay. He Is confrl ?nt of getting 200 tons of hay this year, and a very conservative estimate would place the yield at much more than that. The second cutting is now in progress, and the uncut portions of the lush meadows show how fine the yield is. Col. Cunningham is not much of a believer in terracing. His method for eradicating gullies and washes Is by planting cover crops, which not only stop the washes, but at the same time lay the foundation for a fertility. He is putting this idea into operation on what have heen heretofore badly washed fields, and already after only one such crop the fields show a no? ticeable Improvement. The cotton patch that Col. Cun? ningham is conducting under the di? rections of the agricultural depart? ment at Washington is showing up nicely, while two patches of corn that are being worked under the directions of the experiment station are also showing up well. One is being work? ed with the hoe alone, while the oth? er is being plowed. Other conditions are the same. At this stage there Is not much different between the two, the advantage, if there is any, resting with the latter patch. Col. Cunningham Is also making use of some of his fertile meadows ns pastures for a large number of cattle that he will put on the market this fall. He also has several ^Chester County raised horse and mule colts that are growing fast and give promise of mnking fine stock. It is his idea to make his farm self-sup? plying as much as possible, and the intelligent and orderly conduct of af? fairs, coupled with his past success, shows that he will succeed. NFAV WRVNIKR STATION. A regularly equipped weather bu? reau station will be installed in the Charleston Auditorium about Septem? ber next. The bureau will be in charge of Prof. P. M. Rea. director of the Charleston Museum. The station will be installed for educational purposes, so that the chil? dren of the various city schools and other persons1 may understand the details connected with a weather bu? ff an ttatHn, The station will be as equally well equipped as any other government station, and the object Is to Instruct the children how to read the thermograph, which records the t? rnperature, and the barograph, which records the barometric pres? sure. It will also be shown how the wind apparatus is managed in order to Sheer tain the velocity and direction Of the wind. Another feature will be how to ascertain the amount of rain* fall ami the amount of Bunshlne( andf it fact all the details will be thor? oughly explained. The Instruments Will be go arrang? ed that any one can read them, Th? ttat Ion here will take th< pla< e of ihe; i loak or bos arrangement placed in some Of the parks in tin various cities. On the side of the klOSk Or boi then' is Inserted a piece of glass, through which one may l????i< and read the self-recording apparatus. The apparatus for the weather bu? reau at the Auditorium will be placed on the roof, with the necessary con? nections below, M will not take very long 11> place the different Instruments down-stairs, hut most of the work Is <>i a preliminary character. That Is, considerable work Is necessary in as? certaining: hov\ inch the barometer iy above the sea, which will require a number of measurements. The new Station will be installed by m r. u. m. i irant, or the weather bu? reau. The chief Of the weather bu i tu r I Washington has written Mr. Grant thai tin- new bureau win be put in after July i it was largely through Senator p. K.

July 26.?Constable "Mike" White, of Magistrate Mat? thew's office, last Saturday night landed Isaiah Hamilton, colored, be? hind the bars of the county jail, af? ter the African had for the fifth con? secutive time made a successful es? cape from the Colleton County chain gang two weeks ago. As a result of the capture Isaiah will now spend the rest of his sentence in the State Pen? itentiary a% Columbia, while Constable White is a richer man by $50, or will be as soon as he receives the reward which has been offered for the cap? ture of the notorious negro by the anxious Colleton County authorities. Hamilton was sentenced to three years of hard labor In Colleton Coun? ty last year, on being found guilty of having committed the crime of lar? ceny df live stock. The big African had no sooner been put to work on the chain gang near Meggett's than he promptly rid himself of shackles and lied for parts unknown. He was recaptured, but he could not be held on the chain gang by the guards, as he persistently showed himself to be an adept In loosening the shackles which bound his feet. Five times he fooled the chain gang guards. But Tsaiah, although wily enough in sotjie respects, made the fatal mistake cf coming to his old haunts In this city, primarily to visit an old sweetheart. Laura Gadseden, colored, of Magis? trate Matthew's office, was instrumen? tal in capturing Isaiah no less than three times after he had made his escape from thet chain ^ang. Gra? ham nabbed him about two months ago in Darktown and sent the desper? ate negro back to Meggett's. On making his escape from the gang for the last time Isaiah, as us? ual, made for Charleston, and again, as usual, hunted up Laura Gadsden. The damsel, however, had in the meantime become instilled with fear of her desperate lover, and was also afraid that the fact of his being found near her would involve her In? to trouble. She accordingly resolved to aid the law in sending Tsaiah hack to the chain gang, and accordingly revealed to Constable White that he was again coming to see her on Sat? urday night. It was arranged that she would entertain him until Con? stable White, assisted by Graham, was able to effect an entrance Into the house and nab the escaped con? vict. The coup was successfully car? ried out late Saturday night, Isaiah surrendered without a struggle. It is stated that after Hamilton had been brought back for the fourth time the Colleton guards wero deter? mined to prevent the negro from again making his escape, and weigh? ed him down with no less than two hundred pounds of ball and chain. When Tsaiah wished to talk a walk he was forced to stop after every flUh step in order to pull twenty yards of heavy chain after him, which would otherwise have made it im? possible for him to go further. The convict, however, suceeded in riding himself of the impediment, and also in eluding the vigilance of his guards in spite of everything. Hamilton tvill not be given another chance to break his fetters on a chain gang, but will be taken to Columbia, there to be lodged behind the walls of the Pen? itentiary. Divorce.
