r he Po.tofice at New
berr. a second class matter.
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY, 14, 1905
We were of those whocouldnotsee
the wisdom in the establishment of
the bureau of immigration in this
state, but now that it has been estab
lished we believe it ought to be given
a fair trial and that the house of re
presentatives took the proper course
last week in killing Mr. Ashley's bill
to abolish the bureau. We regret
that the Newberry delegation saw
fit to vote for the bill. The bureau
having been established, it ought to
be given a fair trial.
The legislature will reach adjourn
ment some time next Saturday night.
So far there has been no dispensary
legislation and in all probability there
will be none during the last week of
the session. Both houses have pass
ed a number of bills proposing amend
ments in the dispensary law but on
no one bill have the two houses
agreed. We predicted during the
first few days of the session, when
there was a flood of dispensary bills,
that on none of them would the two
houses be able to agree, and it seems
now that the prediction will be veri
The convention ofcottongrowersof
Newberry county, to discuss the mat
ter of a reduction in acreage for the
coming season, will be held in the
court house here on next Saturday.
We hope to see every township in
he county represented.
In another column in this issue we
publish a letter from a farmer to the
farmers of Newberry county appeal
ing to them to reduce the cotton
acreage this year. The letter contains
a great deal of truth, and will well re
pay a careful reading by the farmers.
McCue, the ex-mayor of Charlottes
ville, confessed before he was hanged.
that he killed his wife. There were
many who believed that he was
guilty but tha.t the evidence had not
been strong enough to convict him.
There were others who believed he
a did not commit the deed. The con
fession has settled the discussion
once for all.
One of the most remarkable things
in connection with the present gen
eral assembly was the passage by the
house of the general appropriation
bill wvith so little discussion. The bill
* went through the house exactly as it
* came from the ways and means com
mittee, with less discussion than has
ever been heard on the floor of the
house during the passage of this bill.
With the creation of two new judi
cial circuits by the legislature it is
hoped that the congesi.gondition of
the courts will be relieved and that
there will be less cause for complaint
against the law's delays. It was urg
ed by the advocates of the ten-circuit
measure that two new circuits would
cost less than the special courts
which have been held. There is no
* doubt there was some need for relief,
and we hope this relief will be given
by the two new circuits. The election
of two judges for the additional cir
cuits will be held by the general as
sembly this week.
The great interest which the far
mers throughout the country are tak
*ing in the movement for a reduction
of :Se cotton acreage seems to insure
a large attendance at the county con.
