Sumter did her -elf proud and Incidentally Secured a lot <>f valuable advertising. The Ki hmoiul patty was thoroughly pleased with the reception accorded ov Sumter. which was c??n aldered one of the very best they had received thus far. A special committee from the < .Amber of Commer? e. consisting of D. It NbCalium. H O. Osteen. A. V. Snell, M. II. Flaum and W. J. Archer met the Richmond train at Darling? ton. Here a committee from the Dar? lington <'hamber of Commerce escort? ed the Hooaters up town to the Com? mercial Club where refreshments were served. From Darlington the specta train went to Florence. A committee of fifty business men were at the station and the reception was a very cordial one. Every member of t*e p .rty including the Sumter com IgHsSl received a white badge which the Florence business men pinned on the coats of the Boosters. The Joke was on Florence, however, for the Sumter committee had alieady gone through the train and plnntd a Sum? ter booster button on e\ery Richmond man. They had also *><?nied out the 8umter Fc. ler. and the Florence Boosters were amased to find that Sumter had again won first blood. Fh.renec took It all in good part and their reception of the Sumter party was Just as cordial as that of Rich? mond. In fact. In the march through the Florence streets, th* Florence and Su ggsr men marched together. A special feature at Florence was a re? ception by the ladles who served punch to the thirsty marchers. The '?tee admitted after ? that Sumter would to beat out the Flor nd It was Joy to their y came into the Sum? ter depot to hear the Sumter band and to tlnd that Sumter had turned ? >ut with the lar*. t crowd that they had yet seen. It was the only place along the entire line that the Rich? mond Roosters had been greeted by ??nd Sumter should certainly be proud of its band. The march up Main stret was also greeted by more people gg the street! than in either Darlington or Florence. 8e\cral of the Richmond party re? marked upon th if.in.' the Bum' -1 streets tod agon the n buildings that were going up.

The summary of the affidavit as? serts that Keith ?Wears be was In? formed by an under-sberiff that the "P -ople having the power" to pro? mote him Wanted this sum for doing It and that when he refused to pay It he was passed and not promoted. This was prior to Mayor Oaynor's administration, the summary asserts. Reith was subsequently promoted to a captaincy when Waldo became com? missioner and his affidavit is said to contain a statement that bis promo? tion th* n did not cost him a cent. Alfred Q. Johnson, the fomer un der-sheriff named in the I ummary, declared tonight that he never offer? ed to get Keith promoted. Hs said that the police officer had come to him several times "and wanted to know If there was not some one who could have him promoted for the pay? ment of $10.000 or $15,000." "I told him straight off that be was a fool to think that money could hell him," he added. Mr. Johnson declared that the af fidavlt. which has been asked for by the aldermanlc committee, had been brought to light in order to discredit him as a possible witness on police corruption. He asserted that he had Information of the existence of branch offif e " for the collection of police graft at 11 S> Broadway, which he investigated last December.

Businessi and Trusts, Talks on Scientific I'luise of Pure Food Quest Ion, Sioux City, low.I. Sept, 17.?Finn support tor i?r. Harvey W. Wiley in his controversy over the enforcement of tin- pure food law,; stood OUt prom? inently in a spee< h y Governor Woodrow Wilson at tin- Inter-State Fair today. Ho drew attention to what he con? ceived to be the Ineffectuallty of boards of experts established under the administration of President Roosevelt, He used it as an illustra? tion of his objections to a commission or board of experts to handle either the tariff or the trust problems. Governor Wilson voiced for the first time his objection to the tariff board idea, declaring it would mean "a post? ponement of tariff legislation." He turned early in his 3peech to the pu:*e food question. "Everybody now suspects," he said, "and the suspicion is based upon a great many facts that can be estab? lished by proof that these pure food laws are not lived up to, that the in? spection is not always what it ought to be, and that a great many things are permitted,to be done which nulli? fy the pure food laws. '1 suppose that most of you know that a great controversy arose because Dr. Wiley, who was In charge of the pure food administration, objected to the use of ben*"'ite of soda in certain th ngs that were sold to you. particu? larly in cans for foods. Now a very nice thing occurred. The gentlemen who wanted to use benzoate of soda persuaded the President, Mr. Roose? velt, that this was a scientific Question and, therefore, ought to have a board of chemists to determine it. And Mr. Roosevelt picked out some of the most smtnent and honest chemists in this country, headed by a personal friend of mine, the President of Johns Hop? kins University, and submitted to them this question: " 'Is benzoate of soda hurtful to the human Stomach or to the human di? gestion when taken internally?' Ob? serve that that was the only question submitted to them and that was ex? actly what the people who wanted to use benzoate of soda for wrong purpos? es, wanted to limit the inquiry to. These gentlemen had to say that benzoate Of SOdS In ItSSll was not harmful to the human system as I believe it is not. But they were not asked t'ui. QUestlon: 'Can benzoate of soda I used to conceal putrtflcatlon? Can it be used in thing- that have gone bad to conceal the fact that they have gone had and to Induce people to put them In their stomachs after they have gone bad ." "They were not asked that ques? lion, bee.nise if they i.ad been they would have paid: 'Yes.' i "1 want t" warn the people of t/.i> country to beware of commissions of experts. I have lived with expert-* all of my life and 1 know that experts don't see anything except what Is un? der their microscope, under their eye. They don't even perceive what is un? der their nos? and. an expert feels in honor bound to confine himself to the particular question wh'ch you ha\ e asked him. "Suppose you wanted to settle the liquor question by asking a body <?t experts whether alcohol was poison or not. i believe they would have to t? II you that It isn't." ?Rut does that settle the liquor ques? tion, there are a great many things that you can't take Into your stom? ach that are not poison that will make you ( ra/.y." Turning to trust-, the speaker dis? tinguished between 'Hig business" and trusts. He referred to the suc? cess of Andrew Carnegie |n the steel business, and declared that when Mr. Carnegie's competitors found they could not undersell because he had more braiis in running the business lh< y bought him out at four or five times the Value <f his property and then by what they charged after* ? irds f"i* their products they made us pay int.i.- t on the four or five times the amount of the value'of the property v I l< h they had paid him, 'There i n difference between R Hie; Slistnesi and It trust.
