The people of the whole state were
very much interested in Governor
Heyward's recent trip to New York,
where 'ie addressed the North Caro
lina S>cietv of New York. They be
lieve that such visits as that made
by their governor can not but result
in a more friendly feeling among all
sections of the country. Governor
Heyward was asked aboat his trip
yesterday morning by a number ot
people. and to all of them he stated
that he was delighted with the re
ception which had everywhere been
accorded him and with the 'general
feeling of good will for the people
of the south which he found in evi
dence. There was a great amount of
capital in the north simply waiting
to be induced to come south, said
Governor Heyward. The northern
capitalists were able to see the
south's great future. In this connec
tion Governor Heyward's attention
was called to the proposed devolop
ment of the water power at Parr
Shoals, on Broad river, and to the
fact that Mr. Horace B. Parker. of
Boston, who will finance the develop
ment, was in the city on Wednesday
night. Governor Heyward was very
much interested in the undertaking.
Governor Heyward returned to Co

ADDRESSED LAW STUDENTS.
Dr. George B. Cromer Spoke to
South Carolina College Class in
Columbia on Wednesday.
Dr. George B. Cromer delivered an
address before the law class of the
South Carolina college, in Columbia,
on Wednesday, which is thus spoken
of by the Columbia State:
In the English room at the South
Carolina college yesterday at 12
o'clock another of the series of lec
tures to the law students was deliv
ered by Hon. George B. Cromer,
mayor of Newberry. Perhaps no one
ir. the state is so well qualified as is
Dr. Cromer to present to the embryo
lawyers the high ideals of the profes
Dr. Cromer's subject. "Mere Mant
hoody for the Lawyer." was presented
in a style that held the attention of
all present throughout the entire lec
ture. More than once did the lec
turer wax eloquent, so strong were
the truths that he was attempting 1to
'npress on his younIg hearers.
"There- are lots of little things,"
said Dr. Cromer. *'that the lawyer
neglects and fails to do, and he thinks
that he is excused for such neglect
for the reason that he is a lawyer.
Punctuality is one of the seemingly
little things that go far in making up
the career of a successful lawyer. And
besides this, the lawyer should 'e
honest in all his dealings with his
cliert. Nor should the lawyer at
temt to mislead a judge on a point
f l.w, nor a jury on a point of fact.
"In a sense the lawyer is supposed
o be, and he is, the guardian of the
rights of the people. He ought to be
something more than a learned advo
cate. He is first of all a citizen, and
he should contribute to the best in
terests of the state. And above all
other. he should stand firm by one
thing. namely. that just principle of
onduct shall control in everything
that he does."
In strong terms, the lecturer up
eld the maintenar ce of principle, of
character and of manhood. The high
est type of the learned lawyer and
cultured gentleman was presented,
D)r. Cromer desiring that everyone
fresnt might reach that height.
In conclusion, the lecturer desired
to impress two things: First, the
reeting of all obligations and en
gageets promptly; second, that
everyone before him might effectuate
a blameless. clean and honorable
manhood for the lawyers of ouir coun
1:ry, and as far as it goes, for our

year for secondary power. Most of
the mills which have been approach

ures, and Mr. Sligh and Mr. Parker
have found not the least trouble in
placing a number of contracts suffi
cient to warrant the immediate de
velopment of the power.
"The contracts which we have plac
ed, and the contracts which we will
place without doubt within the next
several days warrant the develop
ment of the power," said Mr. Sligh,
when seen after his return to New
berry, "and you can say absolutely
that the work of development wi be
gin in ^ie very near future."

THE NEWBERRY DISPENSARY.
Gross Sales During Dispenser Chap
pell's First Month Amounted
Mr. John Henry Chappell's first
month as county dispenser at New
berry closed on February 28, on

Military Company for Newberry.
The matter of a military company
for Newberry is still being agitated.
A letter was received in Newberry
yesterday from Adjutant and Inspec
tor General John D. Frost s:ating
hat it wonld be impossible to organ
iz: more companies at any place until~
hc inspections now in progress were
cmpetedl. \.'hen this was done,
General Frost saidl he felt sure that
b:ut :wenty companies would be
ustered out of service, and in that
event he would be glad to take up
the matter of the organization of a
ompany at Newberry.
There would be no trouble to se
cure the requisite number of mem
bers for a company in Newberry. In
fact, a sufficient number have already
signified their willingness and eager
ness to join such an organization. It
ould seem that Newberry would be
entitled to a military organization,
nd it is very much hoped that Gen
eral Frost will see his way clear to
equip a company at Newberry.
