WINNSBORC. S. C.
Tacsday. February 19 - - 1901
The pension fund is to be $150,
The legislature a d j o u r n e d
The most aggressive nation of
the world is Mrs. Nation of
Tie appropriation of $100,000
to the public schools was snowed
under in the Senate.
The mcmbers of the General
Assimbly have voted themselves
the privilege of free passes.
Mrs. Nation in her work of de
dtroing the saloons has over
looked the fourth commandment.
A good argument for the re
moval of the jail is the fact that
in cases of change of venue more
than one prisoner has expressed
a desire to be removed to the
Fairfield jail where the people
could be seen.
Even the most earnest advo
cates of prison reform would
never.advocate such leniency as
h4rseback riding towards the
ones hel for -exen - the slightest
ffence. When it comes to prison
reform Fairfield's sheriff is away
in the lead.
Hon. Jno. G. Wolling regiests
us to state that had hc beei
present at the time dhe child
labor bill was voted on, he wouli
have voted asainst it. He barel;
missed the vote on the same, anc
this was due to the vote bein
called sooner than expected.
For the next two weeks at leas
the town council might have th
sidewalks kept free from dr
should not be temp~ted to brin
~the ?eity-'fithers up for contemi
of court. -
A Mr. Dunni.ng brings heai
charges against South Carolina
junior senator. He not on]
claims to have written some <
Mr. McLaurin's greatest speechel
but he brings a claim againm
him for not having paid for tb
same. McLaxirin will not delive
the speeches of anybody in th
United States Senate after Marc
the 4th, 1903.
For fifty cents a day-or pe:
hapsa doll ar-a peddler of chea
shoddy-wares (that is the usus
* kind) can get the privilege froz
the town council of selling h:
wares on~the streets. The tow
caigessily afford to do withot
thesall pittance raised in thi
way. If street venders are to b
lilensed, let the license be heav~
enough for them to feel it and t
protect the merchants of the towz
Make it prohibitory.
As already suggestedl the meet
ing called for March the 4t
should be well attended. In ad
dition to the discussion as to
county exhibit, the questionc
good roads might come in.for coi
sidgrale discussion. Certaini
is that the solution of all rura
problems is* going to be in th~
3matter~ of roads. With goo,
roads the lening of the count;
will eease; with the roads as a
present and..getting worse all th
while from neglect the rural dis
tricts are bound to show a d
6 crease in copulation.
* The next two weeks the at
V tention of the citizens of Winus
boro is likely to be much occu
pied with court, and before th
court is well adjourned our mu
nicipal election will be upon us
Yet the people have not decide<
whether the- election shall be b;
a primary or club. There is ni
mistake about the fact that th
club peculiarly belongs to th
past. The sentiment of the tow:
is in favor cof discontinuing ii
But if" nbody acts things wi.
move on~in the same old way an
the election will be held contrar
to the wishes of the majority.
Several counties in the Stat
have set Fairfield a fine examp]
in having acts passed providin
- for the sale of their old jails s
that new ones migM be iit i
nore suitable quarters and in a
nore suitable way. Fairflild
zertainly needs to take this step.
A quarter of a century ago an act
was pagsed providing for the sale
)f the jail. The same act would
aot be of any service to-day as
the minimum amount specified is
ireater than the real value of the
property. Another act therefore
will have to b3 passed looking to
this desired end. The grand jury
should take the initiatory step'by
condemning the present property
and recommending the purchase
of a suitable site for the erection
of a new jail.
The meeting of the farmers
called for the first Monday i
March should be well attended.
The object of the meeting is such
a one that every citizen of the
countg should feel a deep interest.
County pride should prompt
every one to come out and con
tribute what lie can towardc
making the exhibit - of the county
at the State fair and the Charles
ton exhibition a most creditab4
one. Chester has chellenged th
State as to a county exhibit, anc
as we are the nearest to her; it'i
our duty to accept her dare. I
is no boast at. all to say tha
whe'n it comes to natural re
sources we can easily outstri]
her. Certainly with united actioi
Fairfield can easily outdistanc
the county of Chester.
That is a terrible condition c
things that has been unearthed i
Anderson county where a syster
of slavery practically exists, an
it is to the credit of the Hon. Jn<
G. Wolling of *Xairfield that th
matter has been brought to publi
notice. Upon the floor of ti
house in discussing the presei
contract system he declared -thf
such .a condition of things di
exist in some counties, citi
Anderson as as illustration. TI
county papers took it up and ti
exposure has been made so con
plete that Judge Benet hi
ordered a special term of cou:
for March 7th to make a fnll ii
vestigation as to the same. TI
system alluded to is well illu
trated in the case of the State v
Newell charged with murder, :
which it was developed that Ht
t had been killed while in Newel
a stockade, that he wa
yas a convict, bu
.o e casebhefor.e th'f grand ju2
Sthe presiding jadegtemarked:
g It seems that~ i was charg
>t by Newell with violation of
labor contract; that Newell swc
out a warrant for his arrest befc
y Magistrate Jamea J. Gilmer; t1
' the magistrate issued the warra:
y placed it in the hands of New
>as a deputy,.and that Newell tb
3, deputized and accompanied b2
st sheriff's constable, Dl'ha
e went to the home of WillHul a
r arrested him. It appears il
e they did ndt take him to jail, a
h so, far as the testimony sho
that was the end of the process
the law. Instead of being tab
-to jail, as he ought to have bet
P under the warrant of arrest,
lsome strange procedure he w
n taken to Newell's stockade, wh
.s it seems that Newell had some
nconvicts at work on his farm.E
t gentlemen, here was a poor neg
s taken from his wife and childr
e under a pretext of arrest. TI
Y machinery of the law was used
0 seize him, take him from his ho)
- and put him in a convict's stoc
ade and work him like a conv
without process of law. He ws
under no sentence of the court,
had not been tried. The tes
amony showed that he was guard
a ieconvict made to labor li
a covictandtreated in all
Sspects like a convict. And inde
the manner of his death wou
1seem to inidicate that -itiias in
eeffort to leave this convict cat
athat he was shot as a felon mig
Sbe shot in endeavoring to esca
the sentence of the law. Genit]
e men, this is a serious matter, a:
I charge you that it is your du
to make a thorough investigati<
of this case. You will bring b
fore you the magistrate thati
-sued the warrant and the co
-stables that executed it. Y<
have the power to send f
-persons and papers and you w
only be doing your duty in ma
ing a thorough investigation ai
reporting upon this treatment
eA contract practically as bindi1
e as slavery was next read. - T:
a case will probably bring to lig
.a great sensation, for which IV
jWolling will deserve the cret
of the first public notice of it.

The weather 1:a bee.. %ery unfavor
able for farma work; very little plow
i;g las been detreyet. If the weatber
continueq fair until Monday, the land
will then, in ill' probability-, be suffi
ciently dry to commence plowing. We
think the amount f feitilizers used
tbisiyear willi.far exceed that of any
pry.ious year; at least there -has been
more hauled from market'ap -to date,
than usual. We hope, h.jwever, this
does not mean an exceisive cotton crop.
We hope and trust that our farmers
will endeavor hereafter to raise their
supplies at home; then they will be
independent and happy.
