BIG RUM SHOP
South Carolina Will Be Put on
Local Option Basis*
SENATORS DID THE WORK
Goveraor Ansel Fires Members of Board
Charged with Mismanagement and
Illegal Purchase of Booze.
The South Carolina stale senate,
Saturday, by a vote of 21 to 15, pass
ed the Carey bill abolishing the state
dispensary system and substituting a
local option system betweeu county
dispensaries and prohibition.
This ends South Carolina's experi
ment of 14 years with the state dis
pensary system of handling whiskey
and is a distinct defeat for the dis
pensary element which has had tne
leadership of Senator Tillman.
The house has already passed the
local option bill by a large majority
and the bill will become law as soon
as signed by Governor Adscl, who
was elected on a platform carrying
out this local option idea.
Governor Ansel at once removed
from office the three members of the
state dispensary board who were ac
cused by the legislative committee
of gross mismanagement and illegal
purchase of whiskey.
These members are J. M. Rawling
son, of Richland; J. B. Wylie, of
■Chester, and John V Black, of Col
The removal came only a few daye
before the board would be removed
from office by the bill abolishing the
dispensary, which the legislature has

Part of Rockefeller's Great Gift Will Come
10 Ih s Direction.
A New York dispatch says: Fred
erick T. Gates, chairman of the gen
eral education board to which John
D. Rockefeller gave $32,000,000 a few
days ago, says that the income from
this gift and the income from Mr.
Rockefeller's prior gift of $11,000,000
will be used to increase the resources
■of various educational institutions in
this country within the next decade,
by from $200,000,000 to $250,0C0,uu0.
This is to say, the board will aim to
stimulate local pride in and generos
ity toward public institutions and
colleges throughout the nation, and its
distribution of the income will usual
ly be conditioned upon the raising of
larger amounts by the recipient.
It is understood that the idea of
the elder Rockefeller is to make tils
future benefactions through his son.
This is said to be indicated by his
having made the gift of last Thurs
day through the junior Rockefeller.
It is probable that the younger Rocke
feller will devot9 most of his time
hereafter to administering the bene
volence of his father. As an imme
diate result of this big gift, the board
will extend its agricultural demon
stration work to all of the Southern
states. It is predicted that this work,
which consists im conducting model
farms on educational lines, will mean
the agricultural rejuvenation of the

a dozen accidents having happened
there. It is at a number of furnaces,
among them being those of the Sloss-
Sheffield Steel and Iron company. The
street cars at this point, have to
cross about a dozen tracks, those of
the Louisville and Nashville, the
Southern and other roads.
The engineer of the freight train,
R. L. Carnes, says that he had a
heavy train of coal cars, and that the
cut broke loose accidentally and struck,

TO CLOSE MAILS
Disgusting Testimony in Thaw Case
Up to Postoffice Department.
PRESIDENT TAKES ACTION
Orders Cortelyou, if Feaseable, to Cut
Off Newspapers Carrying Demoral
izing Details of Triai.
A Washington special says: Monday
President Roosevelt called upon the
postmaster general, according to of
ficial announcement made at the
white house, '“to know whether it
is feasible to bar from the mails the
newspapers that give the full disgust
ing particulars of the Thaw case. He
does not know whether it is feasible,
but if it is, he wishes it done.”
The president’s letter was referred
to Assistant Attorney General Good
will of the postottice department, for
a legal opinion. If anything is done
it is expected that it will be
done promptly, though Judge Goodwin
is now out of town.
The president, in directing the at
tention of the postmaster general to
the reports of the Thaw case, diu so
without knowledge of the latter's sen
timents, but had in view, evidently,
the federal statute forbidding the
sending* through the mails of “lewa,
lascivious and obscene matter.”
Unquestionably the work of censor
ing the daily newspapers of the coun
try would be attended with many dif
ficulties and possibly daily legal con
tests would result over whether or
not newspapers had complied with
the postoffice regulations in printing
certain evidence adduced at the trial.
The present force of postoffice inspec
tors would have their hands full as
at least one inspector would be needed
in each city where daily newspapers
are published. Whether or not legal
action follows the president’s action,
he has placed bimself on record as
condemning the stories published.
Since the Thaw triai began the New
York papers ha\e been excluded from
the library in the white house. Upon
being interviewed in regard to the
president's inquiry Postmaster Gene
ral Cortelyou declined to make any
statement concerning any action that
might be taken or to say that any
such proposition was under considera
President Roosevelt received a num
ber of protests from persons who
think that the newspapers printing
Ihe full details of the Thaw case
should be prohibited transmission
through the mails. One of these was
a long, telegraphic protest from a
newspaper, the name of which, how
ever, was not given out at the white
house. The recent discussion of the
question in Canada notably in the
Canadian p'arliament and the state
ment of the postmaster general
at Ottawa, who was reported
to have said that any news
paper publishing such evidence as
that given in the Thaw case of last
Thursday would be guilty of a misde
meanor under the Canadian law, also
was brought to the attention of the
Women Excluded from Court.
The features of Monday in the Thaw
trial were the exclusion of women
’ from the court room and the state
ment of Dr. Wagner, an alienist, bas
ed on a hypothetical question, that
Thaw did not know his acr was wrong
when he killed Stanford White.
During the two days of last week,
when Evelyn Nesblt Thaw was on
the witness stand, New York women
crowded the court room, having in
some manner solved the problem of
getting past the bailiff; at the door.
Monday morning the women stormed
the portals again, but in vain.
Their indignation anew no bounds
when the court officers repulsed them
with the statement that the court’s
order excluded every one except such
as w r ere working newspaper reporters.

While the British occupied Philadel

winter quarters at Valley Forge, says
a writer in the Ladies’ Home Journal,
one day, as Washington and his staff
were dining, a fine hunting dog, which
was evidently lost, came to seek some
thing to eat. On Its collar was the
name “General Howe.” Washington
ordered that the dog should be fed,
and then he sent It to Philadelphia
under a flag of truce, with a letter
reading: “General Washington’s com

the collar, appears to belong to Gen
