Mayor Harley O. White announces to
day that he most emphatically is not a
candidate for re-election and that under
no circumstances, even if the nomina
tion was handed him on a sterling sil
ver platter, would he accept.
When approached several weeks ago
on the subject of his becoming a can
didate for re-election, the mayor said
there was nothing doing, and he has not
changed hia mind.
"On account of the time required to
attend to the city's business the way it
should be handled, I feel that I cannot
do justice to the city and at the same
time attend to my own business," said
the mayor this morning. "I have al
ready served two years as councilman,
and given much of my time the past two
years as mayor. I feel that I have done
my duty as a citizen, and I now am
reudy for others to take up the respon
sibilities. There are no considerations
that will change my mind and at the
end o'f my term, I intend to become a
As the primary election will not be
held until Monday, November 7, and
the election in December, candidates
for mayor are still in the background
and those willing to serve their coun
try as mayor have not been saying much
Anyhow, Mr. White is not a candidate
for re-election and with this announce
ment, the field is open.

Absence of All Ceremony
Marked Occasion, But
Sympathy Was Sincere
By Robert J. Bender.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
Columbia, 8. C, Sept. IS. President
Wilson today brought to Columbia the
body of his sister, Mrs. Annie E. Howe,
to be buried in the church yard where
the bodies of his father and mother
have rested many years. The funeral
party reached Columbia shortly before
The city refrained from formal public
marks of sympathy though there were
many persons at; the train when the
President, Mrs. Wilson and others of
the funeral party arrived. The absence
of ceromony was in obedience to the
wishes of the family.
Long lines of people thronged the
streets as the funeral party made its
way from the station to the First Pres
byterian church and hundreds flocked
about the edifice with heads uncovered.
A brief service wS conducted by the
pastor, Rev. A. W. Blackwood, assist
ed by Rev. Thornton Whaling, presi
dent of Columbia seminary.
Interment was made in the family
plot at the center of the church yard.
The committal service, brief and simple,
was private. Mrs. Howe rests beside her
lnte husband, Dr. George Howe, known
hero as the "beloved physician of Col
umbia." The same modest shaft which
marks his grave will indicate that of
the president's sister also. The graves
of tho president's father and mother,
Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Joseph Rugglea Wil
son, are anly a few feet away.
The president and his party will leave
soon after the services at the cemetery,
taking a train at 6:15 p. m. for Long
"Branch. He will spend 15 minutes in
Washington tomorrow morning and
reach Shadow Lawn about 2 p. m.

thousand people lined the streets as
they passed and as many more surround

During the committal service a quar

funeral of the president's father.
Wreaths were placed on the graves of
his parents and on the grave of Dr.

Paris, Sept. IS. For the first time iu
the history of the world, the French
used an aeroplane squadron to lead the
successful attack on the village ot Bou
ehavesnes, north of the Somme, it was
Twenty fast armored aeroplanes, each
mounting three machine guns, one point
ing forward and two downward, charged
the Herman lines before tho French in
fantry left their trenches.
Flying high above this charging air
column, were French aviation officers
who directed the attack several hundred
feet below in much the same manner
that an officer directs an infantry
charge from a sheltered dugout.
The French flyers swooped low over
the Herman lines as the artillery lifted
and raked the German trenches with a
murderous fire. Prisoners report that
this form of attack had a remarkable
effect upon the Germans who had sur
vived the artillerying and were await
ing in their half mined trenches the
coming storms of French infantry. It
sent them flying in panic down com
municating trenches and in some in
stances caused machine gun crew to de
sert their posts.
As the French infantry came on with
a rush, the air charges drove forward
to the second phase of their work They
flew along the roads, turning their ma
chine guns on German reserves being
brought into action aloug the roads
leading to Bouchavesnes.
Thi new use of aeroplanes proved
so successful that it is expected to play
an important part in. future operations
of the war. British flyers apparently
used the same methods successfully in

sult of Trial
this morning. .The judge's decision in
the demurrer is as follows:
"As to tho first grounds of the de
murrer I have examined the allegations
of the complaint and think there are
sufficient tacts stated to constitute a
"The second grounds of the demurrer
calls in question the jurisdiction of the
fcourt. The defendant contends that he
was engaged in interstate commerce
over which he says the congress of the
United States has complete control, and
that the laws of Oregon, under which
the indictment was drawn, is an attempt
of the state of Oregon to regulate and
control interstate commerce and is in
violation of the constitution of the Uni
ted States and is therefore void.
Question of Law Only.
"The attorney for the defendant in
his brief has cited the court to many
decisions of the United States supreme
court in which that court has construed
an act of congress passed August 8,
1 1800, and known as the Wilson act, and
in construing that act has held that the
word "arrival" has meant at the des
tination and therefore held that inter
state shipments of liquor did not become
subject to laws of the state until it had
reached its destination.
"But in 1913 the congress of the Uni
ted States thought conditions were such
i that additional legislation was neccs-
sary for the proper control of intoxi
cating liquors as no lurermtiie cummer
cial product and therefore on March 1,
1013, passed the Webb-Kenyon act, in
which they apparently changed the rule
established by the Wilson act so that
an interstate shipment of intoxicating
liquors became subject to the laws of
the state in which it is shipped, as soon
as it entered its territory.
"So far as I have been able to de
termine the supreme court of the Uni
ted States has not yet construed the
Webb-Kenyon act, but several of the
supreme courts of the states have con
strued it, and the supreme conrt of the
state of Kansas hs held that the Webb
Kenyon act was constitutional and that
under the act an interstate shipment
of intoxicating liquors became subject
to the laws of the state as soon as it
entered it territory and before it reach
ed its destination.'.'
