Save All They Catch. 11
The herring fishing on the East coast
of Scotland is the most successful on t
record, but it is said to be impossible to I
cure all the fish caught. The question
arises why catch more fish than can t
be cured. Kingsland & Heath, of Col
umbia, don't do business in that style,
all the customers they catch are secured,
they never have to throw any overboard, y
nor do their customers ever throw them e
overboard, for the reason that they
keep at No. 1 stock and sell cheaply and ~
thus make fast friends of all whom t
they deal with. Their stock embraces
everything in china, crockery, glass,
willow and wood-ware, besides a large

A COMPLETE TRIUMPH!
llITE AND BLACK VOTING TOGETiHER
The election Ttiesday, 2nd, passed off
rietly, with one exception. The tick
ts in the field were (1) the straight
[)enioeratic ticket, and (2) a Republican
?residential and Congressional ticket,
md the following persons for County
)flicer : For the Senate. Ellison S.
Keitt; for the House of Representatives,
[no. C. -Wilson. Jas. A. Crotwell and
)avid B. Lvles. Mr. Wilson was a
egular nominee on the Democratic
icket. The Clerk, Sheriff, Probate
Fudge and School Commissioner on
his ticket were the regular Democratic
ominees. The County Commissioners
in this ticket were, J. 1). S. Livingston,
kam'l W. Cannon and Lewis Duckett,
By whom this latter ticket was got
en up we do not know. Mr. Living
ton knew nothing of it till the morn
ng of the election. Neither did Mr.
,rot well. The names of the other Dent
erats on the ticket were very probably
sed without their knowledge or con
ent; but this we do not know.
There was also a third ticket contain

ars, the Republican candidate for Con

nd only on- incident happened to mar
e harmony of the day. While the
hites and blacks were voting quietly
nd peaceably at Cromer's Store a party
f twenty-five or thirty young men,
tid to be from Laurens County, charged
i on horses without any warning and
ttacked the negroes with clubs and
istols. One negro was killed. The
rhites at the polls banded together and
rotected the negroes from further
arm. The negroes speak in the high
st terms of the conduct of the New
erry whites, who came promptly to
ieir rescue. Great indignation is felt
y the whites as well as blacks of that
ommunity over the occurrence, and
fforts will be made to bring the guilty
arties to justice. The negro who was
illed, Warren Williams, was a good
egro. With this exception the day
assed off pleasantly, and, as will be
sen by the returns, the regular Demo
ratic ticket received a large majority.
Our report of the vote is not claimed

an get it at this time. The vote for
lectors and for Congressmen is very
early correct; but the other is princi
ally by estimate on the basis of the

Presentment of-the Grand Jury.
STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, COUNT:
OF NEWBERRY.-IN THE GENERA:
SESSroNs, NOVEMBER TERM, 1880.
.7o his Honor . B. Kershaw, Presiding
The undersigned Grand Jury c
Newberry County, respectfully mak<
the .following presentment:
1st. We have examined all of the
Public Offices of the County, and fin<
them well kept and in good condition
and we must say in justice to the offi
cials of the County, without a singl
exception, that they have invariabi:
treated us with the utmost consideration
and have been prompt in the exhibitioi
of their Books, papers and especiall:
2nd. As to that part of our last pre
sentment which refers to the Poo
House property being rmade self-sus
taining, we would say that, througl
the economical administration of th
County Commissioners, and the energ
and efficiency of the Keeper himsel:
the farm has been made to pay for th
keeping of the Poor House and leav
a balance to its credit,, viz., salary t
the Keeper, $175.00; Rent of farm
$125.00; Sale of two hales of cotton
$86.42,-leaving a balance of $36.43
3rd, The Grand Jury have on tw<
occasions recommended suit on the of
ficial board of Jesse C. Smith to recove
the balance due by him as late Count:
Treasurer of Newberry. They hay
been unable to discover any evidenc,
of any suit for that purpose, althougl
this Court passed an order upon tha
portion of their presentment at the las
term of this Court. We are not awar,
of any reason why our recommenda
tion should have been disregarded
and we again renew our recommenda
tion, with the hope that no futur
Grand Jury will have the unpleasan
duty of referring to the matter.
4th. We are informed that the sai<
Jesse C. Smith left to his credit in th,
National Bank of Newberry, the sum c
about $3,200, and that the same ha
been turned over by an. order fror
Court to the present County Treasure
and is still in his hands, and has neve
been divided or placed to the credit c
any fund or funds. We recomment
that action be taken by the proper oi
ficers, so that that fund may be used o
distributed according to law.
5th. We are glad to say that the mat
ter of the Bills of the Bank of the State
which were tendered by the Greenvill

Coroner's Inquest Over Warren Williams.
1- Testimony taken at Coroner's Inquest
e at Cromer's Store in regard to death of
g Warren Williams:
It. C. Carlisle sworn-says: Am a pr::c
n ticing physician, graduate of Ne' York
- College ; was in Mrs. Cromer's house on
Tuesday, day of election ; heard a ncise;
>t went -to window ; saw nine or ten men
coming down road by Cromer's gin-house ;
d I g.t my hat and came down to road ; the
:nen had passed Will Jackson's house; one
or two were in road opposite store ; I ran
to Will Jackson's house ; saw man there
wiIth pistol in hind on horseback ; saw M.
M. Buford holding bridle. reins of two
! horses, calling on those men to stop row
saw other men doing same as Buford; men
stopped, and w.' thought n%e had stopped
the fuss ; one man v. heeled on his hor-e
and rode towards well, and others followed
y as if row was stopped ; I went towards Mrs.
e vromer's house; one of the parby dia
mounted, and I begged him to stop this
g matter : I begged him to get boys to stop
fuss; he raised pistol and said I would see
what I would get. Saw four men at well
where there was confusion-not so very
great ; saw one rock, size of double fist, fall
over into road within twenty feet of the
four men alluded to ; saw rock fall in ttn
feet of same party-both rocks coining
South from Cromer's well ; just aftei wards
t heard three or four pistol shots; don't
know who did the shooting; all was over
S in one or two minutes. I was ordered by
a Buford into line to stop fuss and resist
I these men ; I did fall into line. These par
ties wert up .he road ; there was firing from
t these parties and from parties on th: South.
Everybody here regrets the difficulty. Heard
. many white juen say, "Shoot the rowdies".
Outcry in tern minutes, "somebody killed";
I asked who ; nobody knew ; afterwards
heard it was Warren Williams; welt to the
body, and le::t ; went to the well, and col
ored man named Lewis Holman said he shot
- first and he began and repeated twice. Said
- J. R. Swindler, Dr., shoot them or stop them.
Swindler and several men of this precinct
V had guns and pistols in lina to stop row.
- Never saw more quiet election up to time
of disturbance. I knew the secrets. of the
- campairn, and no man knew of the coming
of the rowdies nor the men who indu!ged
- in the row ; thought it was a party on frol
ic. Instructions were to keep the peace,
, which was done until the. disturbance ;
many white men ran risk of their lives in
trying to stop it ; two men had their hands
badly hurt trying to stop it; one white
man said that he got lick on his head from
one of those rocks. Votes had pretty well
been cast at time of row. Great confusion
prevailed. The last shooting from these
- parties was from gin-house. It w.s impos
sible 10 have sho,, deceased from either
a well or gin-house. All arms here were for
self-protection; I had been informed there
would be attempt to take box. Asked two
colored men in keeping peace ; they prom
ised to do it. It was proposed by Repub
licans that he and another would put card
in papers approving conduct of whites at
this box. Fifty or seventy-five in road
when party came up, and refused to give
road. All was pleasant up to difficulty.
R. C. CARLISLE.
Samuel Atchison, sworn-sa';s: Was
here on election day. All was quiet till
seine unknown parties came dashing up in
noisy way. All of us, as general thing, at
once tried to stop them-and I thought
Lhad stopped them, when they dashed up
towards the well, ivhere was a crowd of
7colored people ; then shooting began. I
grabbed one of their pistols ar.d tried to
ftake it away, and hurt my hand so I let it
go ; he threatened to shoot me. We quiet
ed themi again, and they wer t to gin-house;
then there was firing from gin-house and
Salso from the back of the gin by other par
ties than the unknown party. Was order
Sed out by Capt. Buiord to keep the peace
- and there ended difficulty. Don't know
a who shot Warren Williams; could not
V have been shot from gin-house, and there
,are houses between well and where body
1 lay dead. Lewis Holman said he shot
V twice from behind well; asked mne if~ they
did not shoot first. Guns were here to keep
. peace, and heard before that box would be
r taken by Republicanus. 1 was Marshal of
tihe day, and knew the intention was to
Skeep peace. S. L. ATCHISON.
Dr. W. M. McCarley, being sworn-says:
I the deceased, Warren Williams, came to his
, death by a gunshot wound, entering the
sa mouth at the right side, breaking out a tooth,
e then ranging upward and back-ward, sever
injg several blood vessels; and _lodging near
Sthe base of the brain just above the Sphenoid
,bones, and was sufficient to be fatal.
, W. M. MoCARLEY, M. D.
- Mil ton Sanders, sworn-says: Was here
on election day; saw crowd of re-l shirt men
come up) with- sticks and begin to heat a col
rored man; next saw one of them shoot;
great deal of shooting done;, . don't know
V whether any shooting was dor:e from lot
a where colored men were; saw oue red shirt
e man in the lot. All quiet till this party came
~up. Do not know any of the party who came

Col. E. S. Keltt and the Independeni
The following communication ap
peared in the Charleston Scws and Cou
rier the 1st instant:
ENOREE PLANTATION, S. C.,
Oct. 8, 1880.
To the Editor of the 2cws and Cou
rier: Will you give me a place in yom
columns to correct a misrepresentation
The Ne wherry HEALD in its last issue
October 27th, speaking of an independ.
eut ticket which they say my name is
on, uses the following language : "Col.
Keitt is non-committal." This the HER
ALD knows is utterly false, and they have
intentionally misrepresented me.
On the 18th instant I got a letter
from W. H. Wallace, one of the edi
tors of that paper stating that an Inde
pendent ticket was being circulated in
the county with my name on it in which
he says: I will be pleased to receive
and publish whatever statement you
may see proper to make in connec
tion with this matter."
I replied on the 20th instant, and used
the following language: "You havE
given me the first authoritative informa
tion that my name has been put upon
any ticket. I am entirely out of poli
tics, and could not be induced to re
enter them." My letter was delivered
by hand to the editor of the HERALI
on Friday last, five days before its issue.
Why was it not published, if the mis
representation was not intended? M
political opinions are well and widely
knowa. I have always been honesi
and frank in their expression, looking
alone to the welfare of the State.
ELLISON S. KEITT.
We give the facts of the case both in
justice to Col. Keitt and ourselves. Or
the 18th of October the letter Col.
Keitt speaks of was written stating, at
he says, that we would be pleased tc
publish w hatever statement he might
see fit to make in connection with the
matter-the matter of the Independun
ticket. The letter went on to say thal
we "specially desire to ascertain fron
each of the nominees on this ticket, 1st
whether he has been nominated witi
his knowledge or consent; 2nd, wheth
er he would run on that or any othei
Independent ticket; 3d, whether he
wvou.ld serve if elected on such ticket.'
The letter was written because we di(
not expect to be able to see Col. Keiti
personally. A day or two after mail
ing the letter we met Gol. Keitt on the
struets of Newberry and, telling him o:
the letter, which he had not then re
ceived, and of its object, asked him thi
three questions above stated. To the
first he answered no, to the second, thal
he was out of politics and was attend.
ing to his private business, and to th<
third, that he was like a modest girl
and would not kick before he was court
ed. This interview was reported ir
the HERALD. After this personal in
terview his letter was received. It was
not published, for two reasons; first tht
personal intervie w had fully answered
the purpose of the letter, and, second
ly, we had only proposed to publish
whatever he might see fit to say in con
nection with the Independent ticket
In not publishing the letter there war
no desire or purpose to do him any in
jury and in saying he was "non-cam
mittal" on the question whether hi
would serve if elected on the Independ
ent ticket, the published interview
(the correctness of which he will no
deny), and his letter of the 18th of Oc
tober, (which can be found below)
will show whether or not we have mis
represented him. Neither in the per
sonal interview nor m his letter do we
find anything that we can construe af
meaning that he would not serve i
elected. Such may have been his in
tention in his letter, and others may hi
able to gaLher that meaning frorm it.
Could we have done so we wouki
gladly have published the fact at once
Our readers can put their own construe
tion upon it. Here it is:
ENOREE PLANTArioN, S. C.,
Oct. 20th, 1880.
Mrb. W. H. Wallc, Editor Newberrz
DEAR SIR: Your letter of the 18ti.
instant is to hand, in which you say
ticket is being circulated in this County
with my name on it for the Legislature:
that you have seen some of the nomi
nees, and those you have not seen yot
have written to; that you would be
pleased to receive and p)ublish any state
ment Imay see proper to make in connec
tion with the matter. You have giver
me the first authoritative informatior
that my name has been put upon any
ticket. I am entirely out of politics,
and I am so thoroughly disgusted witi:
the tricks and frauds that are practiced
that I could not be induced to re-entei
them. For twenty years I served the
county in her greatest trials, honestly
and with all my ability. At great cost
to myself I traxveled in the North ant
spoke in two Presidential campaigns te
put the condition of the State before
the public mind. I.ast December and
January, after mature deliberation, I
frankly and honestly gave my opinions
to my countrymen as to what we should
do. If my council had been heeded
we would have been saved the maorti
fication of having the patriot dead of
the South, who fell in the late war be.
tween the States branded as traitors
by our standard bearer with the hope
that thereby he may get a few more
Northern votes and secur'e additional
political power;. and the shame that
men of th'e South who have ever been
honored by her people should be so
weak as to appovwe the tantiment.
An honest, straightforward and man
ly cou.rse alone will achieve success.
Until that is the rule I hope to remain
in private station. I advocate the
largest liberty, liberty with law and
order;afor without therm jt is licentious
ness, and givilization is rolled back.
The government should be controlled
by intelligence, property and character.
When ignorance and venality are in.
stalled into power the ruin of all will
be the result. Government should pro.
