S. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Entered at the Postoffice at New.
berry, S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Friday, June 15, 1000.
Newberry college seems to have
caught the spirit of the age, and is
going after the dollars, and they
seem to be coming her way more rap
idly than ever before in her history.
Judge Dantzler at the opening of
the court yesterday morning made a
statement in regard to the reason for
postponing the criminal court from
Monday until Thursday, and assumes
all responsibility for acting upon the
request of the local bar.
The etiminal docket is very heavy,
and Solicitor Cooper is very anxious
to reduce it and for that reason
would not have consented to the ad
journment of the court from Monday
until Thursday if the matter had been
left to him. However, it is quite
probable that - he will ask Judge
Dantzler to give an extra week to
Newberry in order that the criminal
docket may be cleared.
MEETING PRESS ASSOCIATION.
President Aull, of the Soutli Caro
lina Press Associatiop, has sent. out
the following circular to the daily
press of (lie state in regard to the ap
proaching meeting of the associa
The date has been changed from
June to July and we also print. this
circular so that it may have every
opportunity to fall under the eye of
every newspaper man or woman in
the state. He also has something
to say of the proposed trip and will
be glad to have every one who con
templates taking this trip read what
he says and advise him at once.
To the Memebsr of the South Carol.
inn Press Association:
The annual meeting of the asso
ciation at the Isle of Palms which
had been fixed for June 27-29, has
been changed to July 17, 18 19. This
is done at the suggestion of Messrs.
Riddock &Byrns, the proprietors of
the hotel and after consultation with
the members of the local press in
Charleston. The reason for the change
is that it developed after the date
had been fixed that several excur
sion parties and other conventions
were fixed for the same date at the
Isle of Palms and the proprietors of
the hotel felt. that they could not
give the press association the accom
modations which they desired and
that they could not change tle other
dates and they did not know of
them when the meeting of the asso
ciation was fixed for June 27-29.
They did not insist on a change of
date, but suggested it for the reason

Thi'ls is not a satisfoetory schedule

I should think the whole trip in

side trips would not cost over $30.00.

The hearing yesterday was held in
the court of Magistarte Moorman-,
having be-n postponed from the day
after the tr.wible. It was set for 6

before the court and without any
formality waived a preliminary hear

in which he said that he wasanxious
to avoid any further discussion of
the affair and for that reason waived
a preliminary hearing, and that while
he, of course, did not want to be
placed under a peace bond and had
no idea of not keeping the peace, lie
submitted the matter entirely to the
discretion of the court and would
furnish bond or not as the court de
eidled. So far as lie wvas concerned,
he said, the matter had passed over.
The magistrate announced that lhe
thought it. hest that Mr. Black should

peace in the sum $1,000, but that so
far as he could see Mr. Lyon had
done nothing for which he should be

with the court that Mr. Lyon should
not be placed under peace bond. Mr.
Lyon was not present.
Mr. Black immediately entered in
