The Slate charters the Allen K. Smith
Company of SmtthBeld, giving ft power
to construct tobacco prise booses, ware
houses and factories, and also to bufld
and operate a general warehouse for to
bacco. There was never such a leaf tobacco
trade as there is this season. East of
here there is a rush. It la said that la
some markets the farmers do not even
sort their leaf, but are so well pleased
with the high prices that they put It oa
the floors just as It Is. The result Is that
the buyers mase big money, aa they sort
it with special care.

Democratte State chairman Simmons
said to your correspondent today that
he was particularly pleased at the politi
cal outlook In the State and regarded
the party as now stronger than ever be
fore, Bo far as he Is aware there is no
Independent movement except in 4 conn
ties, and In each case It is due entirely
to local causes. He says there Is no gen
era! movement, and that there Is kq head
to It. He regards ex-Congressman J. W
Atwater as an emissary, going about
seeking to develop and foster any Inde
pendent movement. Chairman Sim
mons says that in an extreme western
county a prominent Republican went to
one of three Democrats who had failed
of nomination and assured him that It
he would ran as an independent all his
expenses would be paid. The Senator
says he hu no Idea that the Democrats
will fall to carry all the Congressional
districts, and any statements or hints
that the Republicans will carry the 9th
district he characterizes as absurd.
As to the Legislature Chairman Sim
mons says he believes there will be fewer
Republicans In that body than there
were at the last session.
It (s asserted with .much posltlveness
by tome of the Democrats who took part
In the Independent convention of this
county laat Saturday that If Republicans
are going to figure In It they are done.
It Is a significant fact that Republicans
attended this convention and did a lot of
cheering. One negro who led In this ap
plause waa a delegate to the Republican
State Convention but did not go there.
Had he gone he would have been ousted,
aa that was part of the sharp scheme of
the Republicans to make It appear they
have finished with the negroes. Tet this
particular negro applauded the speech
of ex-Congressman Atwater here Satur
day at the Independent county conven
tien and this is taken at proof that he is
In line with Republican views, and that

The Lonely Widow.
Of all the farce comedies that have
made bo decided a hit with the theatrical
public, the most popular of all thiB yoar
la said to be the "Lonely Widow," the
new play that is taking such a popular
stand in theatrical circles. One of the
reasons assigned for this Is a weU de
fined plot, which unlike a great many
farce comedies, runs through the entire
play. The "Widow" Is Irish and the
first scene is laid in a boarding house In
New York. She becomes suddenly
wealthy through an Inheritance left her
by a rich uncle In Ireland and moves In
to a mansion on Fifth Avenue. In the
last scene the "Widow" and her daugh
ters are at a picnic on Coney Island and
the interest in the play never lags from
the rising of the curtain on tbe first act
to the closing by the Wine chorus
which is rendered by the entire compa
ny. 1 his song is said to be tne nit oi
the season, and with the other musical
specialties Is sufficient to gratify the
taste of all lovers of sparkling and up
to.date'muslc. Besides the regular play
the performance Is. interspersed with
catchy singing and dancing specialties,
banjo picking, and a marvelous fire and
serpentine dance by Hllle Francine and
Baby Blossom. Two other celebrated
members ot this company are Mr. James
Mackln a well known Irish comedian
and Master Commodore the youngest
buck and wing dancer on tbe American
