ary term of the general sessions court
in Newberry, his fii-st appearance here
as presiding judge. He presides with
ease and dignity, and carries forward
the business of the court rapidly.
When the calendar of jury cases
was sounded yesterday morning only
three cases were left open for trial,
the others being continued or other
wise disposed Qf. The three cases left
open were Haltiwanger vs. Richards,
Cannon vs. Brown, and Matthews vs.
The case of Matthews vs. Copeland
was taken up. Mr. B. C. Matthews,
as agent for his wife. Mrs. Clara B.
Matthews. is suing for possession of
the store now occupied by Copeland
Bros., and for damages in the sum of
$2,500. Mr. Matthews alleges that the
leases under which. Copeland Bros.
held the store, which is the property
of his wife, expired on February 10,
1905, and that .they have refused to
give up possession after being notified
to do so. Copeland Bros. in their an
swer to the complaint allege an agree
ment, which they say was reduced to
writing but never signed, by which
they were to hold the store for an
other five years, until February 10,
1910, and under which they were to
make certain improvements in the
store, which they claim to have al
ready been made.
The plaintiff yesterday morning in
troduced in evidence the leases ex
piring February-10, 1905, and the no
tice dated March 14, 1905, requiring
Messrs. Copeland Brothers to vacate
the property. The plaintiff then prov
ed by several witnesses the rental

During the introdiuction of the tes
timony for thd defeinee the question
arose as to'whether or rot the defend
ants had the right, under their an
swer, to introduce testimony showing
that there was a verbal agreement,
under whieli the defendants were to
hold for, another five years and were
to make certain improvements, which
they allege have beeir made.- This
agreement Mr. Blease, one of the at
torneys for the defendants, claimed
had been presented to Messrs. Cope
land Bros. by Mr. Matthews, but had
never been signed. a personal differ
ence having arisen during the consid
eration of the matter. Mr. Blease
claimed that this paper was in the
possession of the attorneys for the
plaintiff, arid demanded possession of
it. The plaintiff's attorneys denied
that they had any paper whichi Mr.
Matthews had piesented to Copeland
Brothers as an agreement, and held
that any paper which he mig.ht have
drawn with tire intention of present
ing to them was simly a private pa
per. and something with w~hich the
court had nothing to do. They held
that under the answer of defendant
only a w.ritten agreement could be

DAMON AND PYTHIAS
To Be Presented at Newberry Opera
House-A Most Charming En
tainment by Good
(I Friday. March 2nd, )anion an(d
P)ythias will he preseited in Newber
r'y hy practically thle same east. whlich
rendeied the great damon si) success
fully on the 19th in Columbia. The
play will be under the direction of Mr.
Edward D'Oige, who will also play
Damon and will be under the auspi
cies of the local Knights of 1ythias.
Mr. D'Oige has successfully pre
sented Damon and Pythias on many
occasions throughout the south for K.
of P). lodges, and has also played in
the piece with Robert Downing, Louis
James. Frederick Wark, and Edwin
Ferry. He was also seen here two
seasons ag1) as Romeo.
The story of Damon and Pythias is
of such ancient origin that its source
cannot be definitely traced, but it has
been familiar to all lovers of romance
for oxer 2,000 years, and no other ex
ample -of history or fiction is so re
plete with, the sentiment of true
friendship. Briefly told, the story is
Damon, the patriot senator of Syra
cuse. a philosopher and a man of
lofty ideals, attempted to prevent the
rise of the Syracusean General, Di
onysius, who aims to overthrow the
democratic form of government and
make - himself ~king. Damon's elo
rquence in the senate house failiijg to
stem the tide of events, and loving lib
I erty better than life, he risks every
thing upon one blow, and attempted to
kill the usurper, but is seized by the
. king's guard and sentenced to an
?ignominious death upon the block.
Damon appeals for a few hours re
spite that his wife and child might be
brought to him before his execution,
but is refused by the tyrant and is
being led to execution, when his tried
and trusted- friend, Pythias, leaving
his Calanthe to whom he is to be wed
(led that very day, offers himself as
hostage for Damon's sure return,
Itakes his friend-'s pJace in his dun
eon. while Damoi- goes to bid his
,ife faiewell. Dionysius being touch
ed 'by such a-'generous act. grants a
stay 'of proceedings for six hor's, and
dsuising himself visits Pythias in
his pisxon, resolving to put his friend
hip to) a test, telling him that the
king haid dispatched 20 men to-inter
ept Damon on his return to Syracuse.
nd offers Pythias the means of es
pe. But Pythias, true to his prom
ise, declines the proffered means of
escape. Damon, .on arriving at his
home, breaks the terrible news to his
vife, Hermion. She implores him to
take advantage of his liberty and fly
to Italy in Greece and escape the ty
rant forever, but he wvill not so pro
fane the sanetity of friendship and
calling for his horse is about to de
)art to doom, when his shave, Lucul
ims, informs him in order to save his
master's life, lie has slain his steed
and so cut off the means of his re
turning to Syracuse within the given
time.. The unhappy man in a frenzy
f ox' andl wrath, is ah-out to hurl
himself and the wre.tched struggling
lave from a precipice, when afar he
beholds a ti-aveler'upon a god steed.
Rushine upon the unsuspecting rider,
he pulls him. from the saddle and
mounting his horse returns to Syra
mcse just at the moment Pythias is
mounting the block. Dionysius' ad
miration for the friendship of the two
men is so great that he pardons both,
nd so the story has a happy enddmg.
The play was written by an Irish
poet, John B3anim in 1820, and re
eived its first production at* Covent
Garden Theatre. in London in 1821,
with Mr. William Macready in the
role of D)amon. The first productior\
n America was given in Boston
in 1846. Mr. Edwin Forrest essaymng
the part of Damon, anid for' nearly 100
rears the play has b)een*a great favor
ite of both player. and publie.
The order of the Knights of Pythias
was founded ulpon1 this le2enId.
Will Probably End Today.
It is probable that all jury busi-.
ness in the common 'leals court will

dismissed. There being only one oth
or jury case for trial, all the jurors
xcept those empanelled on this case
will be dismissed this morning, and
it has been stated that an effort will
be made to continue this case.
Plans For New Building.
Some time after the fire at the low
cir ed of Mains street it was announ
ed in The Herald and News that Mr.
.J. H. Hair had purchased the lot
wvhereon had stood the building occu
)ied by him as residence and barber
shop and that lie would soon erect a
brick building on tis lot. The ar
emit ects are nowx dr'awi ng thle plans
frteerection of a mfodern'I twvo
story brick building and it is stated
that- 4hie actual. work ot construction
will begin in the very near future.

of the entire show was the scientific

The weather was ideal and a large
house greeted he minstrels, thus in
Ssuring the financial success of the pro
ject, which means a good -deal to the
Athletic asspeiation. The success of
this occasion was due to the untiring
effoi-ts of Coach Holland. under whose
direction the minstrels were trained.
The "Isle of Spice."
Perhaps the "Isle of Spice" has
the cleverest comedians seen in mus
ical shows in the Ciescent Tleatre.
Herbert Cawthorne, who is remem
bhered. for his humnr in many comedy
affairs in this city and elsewhere, is
particularly funny as one of the sail
iors who, dropped on the "Isle of I
Spe'' front. a baloon, . which -had
been sent up. by an American gun
boat 'iear'this strange counti-y. .HeI
adHarry Watson, who is an old
fvoiite ~here. are . irresistible, and
they vie with eaeh other for the most
Ifun out of their lines. Their "Silly
Sailors'' is nove', and their'dances
are so grotesqjue that both comedians
establish .themselves in favor. Sanm
Mlie is another clever comedian,
and his feature song "The Goo Goo
Man"' is great. Harry Griffith has a
fine voice, and in his song "Take Me
Iome'' gained many encores. Miss
Leslie Leigh, as the king's ward, is
a pretty young woman, and her
voice is mellow and rich. and, in the~
irst song number she won favor for
the "Isle of Spice.'' Miss Leigh~
knows her art well and is capable ofj
zreat things. The song, "Peggy
Irady'' is tuneful, and Miss Leigh
gave it so sweetly that it will be!
Inae p)opular. Miss Lillian Gorman,I
mother sweet young woman, is a help
in the show. The others of the comn
pany are good, and the show is so
nicely polished that it will have a
reat run throughout the week.
