ly the candidates that are entering

as many clubs of $25.00 in subscrip

plain because never again during the

either in new or renewal, as now.
Therefore each cndiadtae desires to

while more votes are issued . .upon

fact and send to The Dispatch by 10

15th, every possible subscription that
is within her power to secure The
candidates that are entering each day

scription to The Dispatch by 10 p. m.,
Saturday, June 15th, so they will be
in position to receive many extra
votes in addition to the regular votes
for their first amount of subscriptions.

The vote standings of the different
participants of The Dispatch Cam
paign will appear in the edition on
Sunday of The Dispatcu, and there
will be noticed that the votes for the
various candidates are beginning to
soar skyward, and this naturally de
notes the interest that the different
candidates and their friends are dis
playing, and also the liberal co-operation
they are meeting with from
every source in their efforts to se
cure subscriptions to the Tidewater
section's great daily.

Friends of Congressman Say
That He Is Expecting

(Special to The, Dispatch.
Columbia, S. C, June 14. There is
absolutely no truth in the report that
Congressman A. F. Lever is contem
plating withdrawing from the race for
the United States senate, it is de
clared here today. Friends of the
congressman say that he is in ten race
to the finish and that he expects to
be a winner when the votes are
A. report was printed in a Charles
ton paper to the effect that he was
expected to withdraw but it is de
clared here today that, the report is
without foundation in fact.
Congressman Lever is expected to
arrive here today or tomorrow and it
is probable that a statement will be
issued by him on his ctrrival.
There is considerable specualtion
as to who will make the race for com
missioner of agriculture. It had been
generally thought that .Dr. A. C.
Summers would seek to retain the
place but he has not yet filed his
pledge. W. D. Garrison is the only
avowed candidate for the place thus
There will be no annual convention
of the South Carolina State Fireman's
association held this year, because of
war conditions. Chief Behrens, of the
Charleston fire department, president
of the association, has written a letter
to each fire chief in the association,
setting forth the reason for postponing
the meeting to 1919. The association
is patriotic and has purchased $1,500
worth of liberty bonds. The members
feel they can further serve their coun

next year, at Bishopville.

New York Letter
By O. O. MclNTYRE.
(Special Correspondence of The Dis
patch.) New York, June 14. When you
come to New York looking for an eat
ing place with atmosphere do not fail
to visit "No. 340 West 39th street." I
do not know-the name of the proprie
tors and they do not seem to be par
ticular about the public knowing any
thing about them. So far as I know
it is the only restaurant remaining
with the "atmosphere" reminiscent of
Semprini or Laloy's in the days before
the white tiled, one armed eateries
catapaulted into public favor.
"No. 340" is in a street where race
suicide is unknown. The restaurant
is in the back of bar-room and one
must pass through the bar to reach
the low ceiling room which looks out
upon a slum areaway an areaway
crisscrossed with clothes lines,
smudgy faced children and rusty fire
The bilLot fare is painted on a
blackboard and a dinner for three with
wine totaled $2.40. The waiters are
of the strangest type f have ever seen
and are unknown to Broadway. They
are the cringing servile sort like
rare flowers that a harsh word would
wither. There are only four waiters to
wait on a seating capacity of about
to. service Is an unknown quantity
but what is lacking in service is made
up in splendid food.
All the Broadway types were there.
The fragile Nazimova like person with
a companion red of neck and noisy of
collar were there. Opposite was
Creatore, the band master, and at
another table Irma Deremeaux, the
artist; and an erminied movie star sat
in the corner allowing those who wish
ed to gaze upon her collection of jew
els. At still another, table was a sprink
ling of untamed femininities known
in the Broadway vernacular as "wild
women.' The newly made widow
swathed in black puffed languidly at
innumerable cigarettes. Three Span
ish gentlemen chattered about the glo
ries of America.
The menu contained filet mignon
War Conference of Building Industry
New York, June 14. A general con
ference of architects, building material
societies, building employers associa
tions and organizations of building and
allied interests was begun here today
with the object of finding some plane
upon which the construction and build
ing material interests of the entire
country can meet to lend complete
co-ordinated assistance to the govern
ment in helping to fix the complex
building material and construction in
terests of the country into the war
with stuffed tomatoes at 25 cents. On
Broadway It is $1.25. The coffee is of
a Turkish variety and is served in
glasses like they do on the Paris bQule
vards and sells for five cents a glass.
"No. 340" has been running for ten
years and yet it is never crowded.
Famous In a Day For Her
Oatmeal Combination Does It
Benjamin De Casseres, psalmist of
night and Nietchemism, has dedicated
his new book of poefns to his journal-
j istic associates, Carlo Fornaro and
j Marius de Zayas. The three fiery
! young publicists first got together
I years ago to plot to overthrow Porfirio
I Diaz, of Mexico. The "revolutionists
I table" around which they gathered in
the Tenderloin chile con carne resort
conducted by Joel Rinaldo, greaser,
is still pointed out to sight-seers. They
are never seen during the day but
at night they appaer, serene, cynical
and smiling. They are born radicals,
the foe of industrialism and prescribed
morality, opposed intoto to the pres
ent order of things economical, polit
ical, aesthetic and social.
When De Casseres first appeared in
New York he wrote a letter to the
World in which he said: "I am organ
izing a society for the promoton of of
ficial and private hypocrisy. It will
be composed of pink-tea zanies, nis
zies, witlings, boobies, jolterheads,
candidates for re-election, Chadbands,
Pecksniffs, jobbernowls, doddards,
moon-calves, dunderpates and a few
of the Wise Men of Gotham."
A Free Prescription Does Its Work Over
night. You Can Prepare It At
New York: It is my own discovery and
it takes Just one nieht to stft siirh mar
velous results, says Mae Edna Wilder,
when her friends ask her about her won
derful complexion and the improved ap
pearance of her hands and arms. You can
do the same thing if you follow my ad
vice, she says: I feel it my duty to tell
every girl and woman what this wonder
ful prescription did for me. Just think
of it! All this change in a single night.
I never tire of telling others just what
brought about such remarkable results.
Here is the identical prescription that re
moved every defect from my face, neck,
hands and arms. Until you try it you can
form oo idea of the marvelous change it
will make in Just one application. The pre
scription which you can prepare at your
own home is as follows : Go to any grocery
and get ten cents worth of ordinary oat
meal, and from any drug store a bottle of
derwillo. Prepare the oatmeal as directed
in every package of derwillo and apply
night and morning. The first application
will astonish you. It makes the skin ap
pear transparent, smooth and velvety. I
especially recommend it for freckles, tan,
sun spots, coarse pores, rough ekin, ruddi
ness, wrinkles, and, in fact, every blemish
the face, hands and arms are heirs to.
If your neck or chest is discolored from
exposure, apply this combination there
