to procure three gallons of com

Gov. Hugh M. Dorsey, of Georgia, L<

nob vilence the governor should take
neasures without waiting for a call ,.L>
from local authorities for military rc
issistance, Mr. Dorsey said. Lynchngs,
he added, should be investigated ju
>y a special grand jury drawn from f()

ial prosecutor; those indicted should j,.,
?e tyied "at such pluce as would be jn
nost conducive to ascertainment of an

ior said. t.|8

ADULT ILLITERACY STARTS
Because many of the best teachers
1 the state will be available and beause
the month of August is a vacaion
month for most people, "lay-by

rill be established throughout the

Any teacher holding a valid teachr's
certificate, or any person recomtended
to the State Superintendent
f Education by the County Superin ndent

rhool. Day classes or night classes
ay be organized in accordance with
le need of the locality, the preferice
of the people or the judgment of

These schools are strictly for the ;
lults who cannot read or write and
lly first, second and third grade j
udents will be taught, principally, !
ading, writing and figuring. Teach- i
s will be paid by the State, but the j

Rural Policeman J. T. (Irani has
turned from Florence, where he
cently went to take DeWit.t Allen,
e 10-year old storebreaker, whonf
dge Hough committed to the rermatory.
Young Allen will be kept
that institution until h is 21. Conssing
that he had not only broken
to stores in Pageland, MtCroghnn
d Ruby, hut that he had attempted
burn at least one place to conceal
i' evidences of robbery, Allen imcnted
us an accomplice a thirteenur
old Pageland boy, named A tidern.
This boy was caught guarding
ot <?f stolen goods in the woods, lie
lims he had nothing to do with the
aling. The court will look into
s case at the September term.

colored boarder at the jail, has

Therefore, the jail is empty, the

IARCHY AND BOLSHEVISM '
TO BE FOUGHT VIGOROUSLY 1
The Federal Government is fully
rnizant of the menace of holvism.
Investigation by the Detment
of Justice shows a determ- j
d effort upon the part of the vans
anarchist and bolshevic organiions
here and in Europe to overow
the United States government. ^
fact, it is estimated by department
cials that over $2,000,000 is being
ired monthly into the treasuries
these bands from all narts of the
rid for the sole purpose of gaining
und, which in time it is hoped by
rabid und radical followers of the
t will lead to setting up of the
iet form of government in AmeriIniong
the measures recommendwere
large additional appropriais
for the department of justice
1 legislation continuing perman
!y the war regulations as to purse,
storage, manufacture, sale end
ribution of explosives,
n reporting the bill the senate appriations
committee increased
m $1,100,000 to $2,000,000 the
d of the department of justice for
general suppression of crime,
addition, it added $.'1,000>""0 for,'
special fund to enforce the law t
inst alien anarchists through d"- ;
tations.
'Vnncis P. Garvan, of the depart- i
lit of justice bureau of investi- v
ion told the committee that with !
reused funds proposed the depart- 1
nt plans an active campaign. i
'We have found in the short time <
t we have been at work" said Mr :
rvan, " that conditions are quite <
ious throughout the country. We
asking $2,000,000 and we have
ry reason to believe that the
ssian Holshevik are pouring money
the rate of that much a month."
Mr. (iarvan was asked especially
ether there was an organized ef*L
to destroy the federal governnt,
to which he replied.
"Certainly. We have evidence to
>w that, and that is also shown by
* tremendous amount of money
y are spending. The condition is
ious throughout the country."
New York, Chicago and Paterson,
I., he said, are centers of anarchic
activities. When asked if the dertment
has information thftt anler
outbreak of bomb outrages i>
med for July 4, Mr. (Iarvan said:
"There is a great deal of talk to
st effect. The number of radical
pers (found in the mails) has in-!
?ased over 1 f?0 papers since the'
misticc was signed. We have to \
ke now over 4.">() papers and reud

WORLD PEACE TREATY
SIGNED LAST SATURDA
The world peace treaty has bee
signed.
The great world wrir* that ragei
for nearly five years is at last ended
The official ending of all hostilitie
came at between three and four o'
clock last Saturday afternoon, whei
Dr. Herman Mueller and Joh?.nne:
Bell, the German signatories, firs
and then President Wilson and th<
Allies delegates signed the historj
makiing document in the famous ole
Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, France
The signing was accompanied bj
three incidents that caused some disappointment
to the peace enthusiasts
present, as well as those throughout
the world who were listening nad
watching for an account of the proceedings.
The first of these was the refusal
of the Chinese delegation to sign.
They refused to attend the signing
because they were not permitted to
make written reservations. The second
was a protest submitted by Gen.
Jan Christian Smutts, who declared
the peace unsatisfactory. The third
came from the Germans, who protested
because they were not treated on
an equality with the other signers.
As a compromise the Germans were
given military recognition after they
signed and as they were leaving the
hall, but were given no recognition
as they entered.
The ceremony of signing the peaceterms
was brief. Premier Clemenceau
called the session to order in the Hal!
of Mirrors of the Chateau of Versailes
at U: 10 o'clock. The signing
began when Dr. Herman Mueller and
Johannes Hell affixed their signatures.
Herr Mueller signed at 3:12 nnd President
Wilson first of the Allied delegates,
followed. The German ami the
\ Ilied delegates came next. The ceremony
ami was concluded at d :4.">.
Saturday, the Day of Peace, was
She fifth aniversary of the murder of
Archduke Francis Ferdinand at Suruicvo.
It was this murder, taken us an
excuse by Germany, that precipitated
the war.
As soon as he had signed the pence
treaty, President Wilson cabled from
Versailes a proclamation of peace to
the American people which was issued
;:t tin- White House. President Wil- ,
ion's proclamation follows:
'i he treaty of peace has been signed,
if it is ratified and acted upon in fuli
ind sincere executions of its terms
t will furnish the charter for a new
irder of affairs in the world.
It is a severe treaty in the duties
ind penalties it imposes upon Gcrnany,
but it is severe only because
treat wrongs done by Germany are
o be righted and repaired; it imposes
nothing that Germany cannot do:
ind she can regain her rightful standng
in the world by the prompt and
tonornblc fulfilment of its terms.
And it is much more than a treaty
>f peace with Germany.
It liberates great peoples who have
u-ver before been able to find the
vay to liberty. It ends once for all an
dd and intolerable order under which
mail groups of selfish men could use
he peoples ol' great empires to serve
heir own ambition for power and doninion.
I eajzuo Will Maintain World Peace
li associates the free (iovernmenu
?f the world in a permanent league
n which they are pledget to use their
inited power to maintain peace by
nainlainiiitf r.^ht and justice.
It inaacs international law a realiy
supported by imperative sanction.
li Joes away with the rivcht of con
uest am' rejects the policy of art
o vation and suhsttiuies a new order
inder which backward nations' popu
ations which have not yet come to
lolilical consciousness, and peoples
viio ate leaily for independence hut
rot yet quite prepared to dispense
vith protection and guidance, shall no
nore he subjected to the domination
ird exploitation of a stronger nation,
?ut shall he put under the friendly
lirection and afforded the heljifu!
issistance of Governments which un.
lertahe to he responsible to the or> :i,.r
in.t ... <iw. ..v.......i r
their task by accepting the direction
of the League of Nations.
New Era Provided For Labor
Ii recognizes the inalienable rights
of nationality, the rights of minorities
anil the sanctity of religious belief
and practice.
It lays the basis for conventions
which shall free the commercial inter
course of the world from un.iust and
vexatious restrictions and for every
sort of international co-oper
at ion that will serve to cleanse the 1:f
?!' the world and facilitate its common
action in heneficient service of every
kmd.
It furnishes guarantees such as were
never given or even contemplated
before; the fair treatment of all who
labor at the daily tasks of the world.
It is for this reason that I have
spoken of it as a great charter for a
new order of affairs. There is ground
here for deep satisfaction, universal
reassurance and confident hope.
