Dr. Graham was alone In the room

falling lumber on an adjoining lot

ed. Mrs. P. C. Graham, a sister-in-law
of the dead man, found him upon
her return from a visit about two
hours later. He was seated in the
chair with his head leaning back
with one arm resting comfortably on
the arm of the chair and the other
arm grasping tightly the weapon byj
which the deed was committed. !
No cause has been assigned for the
rash act except that the dead man
was In bad health, and had slight
chances of ever being better.
Dr. Graham was the great-grandson
of Governor William A. Graham,
a nephew of Major W. A. Graham,
Commissioner of Agriculture, and
also of Judge A. W. Graham, of Ox

Negro Committed Two Das

Mrs. J. E. Chaplan Criminally As
saulted and Her Father Fatally
Wounded by the Brute Negro
Arrested and Placed in Jail Ne

Warrenton, Sept. 17. A negro,
George Marshall, lately returned
from the North, late yesterday af
ternoon criminally assaulted Mr!. J.
E. Chaplan, the wife of a respectable
farmer of Vicksboro, 14 miles from
here, after having threatened to kill
her. When the father learned 01 it,
and went after the negro, the latter
shot him twice, perhaps fatally in
juring him. Then the neighborhood
was aroused and the negro barri
caded himself in a house. When the
sheriff came to arrest him, the negro
shot him and two ther members of
the posse. This morning after the
house had been watched all night
the negro's father, by a ruse, enter
ed the house with other negroes and
overpowered him, when the posse
rushed in, bound him and brought
him here to jail. The whole of the
two counties is aroused over the
atrocious deed and it is reported that
a mob will attempt to lynch him to
night. Court convenes to-morrow
morning and if not lynched he will
be tried at once.
Negro Tried and Convicted.
The negro who assaulted Mrs. Cop-
lin and shot her father was tried at
Warrenton Tuesday and the jury re
turned a verdict of guilty after being
out only ten minutes.
Judge Justice sentenced the negro
to die October 20th. He was brough

The Columbia, S. C, Dally Record,
Democratic, in a recent Issue had the
following to say on the political sit
uation in the solid South:
"It is paradoxical, but the prospect
of a Democratic victory holds out the
surest promise of abandonment of
the one-party government in the
Southern States. Since reconstruc
tion there have been numerous at
tempts to establish, upon one basis
or another, a respectable Republican
party In the South, but all of these
have failed. If the effort Is to suc
ceed It will come about as It should
come, as the result of differences of
opinion upon an economic question.

this conclusion is revealed by, the re
spective positions taken by the South
ern cotton manufacturers on the one
hand and the Southern Democrats Inj
Congress on the other with regard to
the revision of the cotton schedule.
The American Cotton Manufacturers'
Association, which is the organiza
tion of Southern cotton mill presi
dents, at its convention In Charlotte
last May appointed a standing com
mittee to represent the association in
all matters respecting the tariff and
other legislation, and thlsc ommittee

the committee presentea to unairman;
Underwood statements of its case in
the form of three bulletins, which
have been printed and widely circu
lated. The committee and conse
quently the Southern manufacturers,
oppose a reduction of the tariff du
ties on cotton goods. Necessarily
the arguments presented by the cot
ton manufacturers rest upon the doc
trine of protection to domestic indus
tries, and this is just as necessarily
a Republican doctrine. The Demo
cratic doctrine is a tariff for revenue
only, without regard to protection,
either incidental or primary. The
Ways and Means Committee did not
disregard the arguments of the cot-
on manufacturer's committee, as we
understand it, but the Ways and
Means Committee did not give the
manufacturers a hearing, since it was
considered that the very recent hear-
ngs on the whole tariff quetsion prior
;o the Payne-Aldrich bill afforded
the Ways and Means Committee all
he necessary Information for fram-
nf a Democratic bill. But the Ways
and Means Committee has disregard
ed the theory upon which the posi
tion of the manufacturers rest. The
Ways and Means Committee, the
chairman of which is a Southern
m . 111. ll.nMl
man, nas not perm n. tea eecuuui
considerations to control its decisions
in regard to the tariff. Therein lies
the genesis of a respectable Repub
lican party in the South.
"For if the Southern cotton mills
are to have protection the Democratic
party, through Chairman Underwood,
has served notice upon them that pro
tection cannot be expected from the
Democratic party. So far as the tariff
is concerned, the Southern cotton
manufacturers, who honestly, if self
ishly, believe In the doctrine of pro
tective tariff, must become Republi
cans. As we understand it, there are
Southern cotton manufacturers who
do not believe in this doctrine, bu
the records show at this time, that
their organization is committed to
that policy. That they should accord
ingly take the leadership in the for
mation of a Republican party, respec
table as to its membership and-as to
its principles, is altogether natural
That such a party would find many
other supporters than cotton manu
facturers alone is also certain. The
lumber interests in many of the
Southern States are extensive, and
their influence has already been felt
in tariff legislation at Washington. In
addition there are thoughtful men In
the South not directly or personally
interested or benefited who subscribe
to the doctrine of protection. With
a full realization of this condition It
has been realized that, should the
Democratic party come into power
here would be found Its chief , diffi
culty. In framing a tariff bill would
a Democratic House and Senate and
a Democratic President make conces-

Boston, Mass., Sept. 19 Six prom
inent business men connecteu witn
the United Shoe Machinery Company
were indicted to-day by the Federal
grand jury for alleged violations of
the Sherman anti-trust act.
Two indictments were returned, al
leging the maintenance of an unlaw
ful combination and conspiracy In re
straint of trade on the part of Presi
dent Sydney W. Winslow, Vice-Presidents
Edward P. Hurd, George' W.
Brown and William Barbour; Coun
sel Elmer P. Howe and James J.
Storrow. Messrs. Winslow, Hurd,
Brown, Howe and Storrow are Bos-
tonians while Mr. Barbour is a resi
dent of New York. All except Mr.
Storrow are dlrectores of the com
pany. Mr. storrow resignea irom
the dlctorate just before the muni
cipal election two years ago when
he was a candidate for mayor, but
is the largest stockholder.
The grand jury sat for nearly a
month considering the evidence pro
duced by 75 witnesses who were
brought here by special agents of the
Department of Justice at Washing
ton from all parts of the country,
but especially from New England.
The investigation was in charge of
United States Attorney Asa P.
French, assisted by Special Assistant
Attorney-General William 5." Gregg
and Oliver E. Pagan, of Washington.
The- indicted officials will be sum
moned into court to the indicements
and furnish bail.
The penalty provided under the
statutes involved is a fine of 35,000
err. Imprisonment for one year, or
both. The trial will not take place
until well along In the winter, owing
to the crowded condition of the Cir
cuit Court calendar.
According to Mr. Gregg, the Indict
ments charge that the six defend
ants have been working through the
instrumentality of the .United Shoe
Manufacturing Company in a way to
make them criminally liable under
the Sherman act.
It seems that It was the nigh cos
of liquor, and not the high cost o
living that caused Maine to go Demo
