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

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?

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

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?

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

Mr. Johnson declared that the af

the aldermanlc committee, had been

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
