HELP BUILD THE MTLJS.
In looking back over the files of
The Herald and News a -few days ago
we ran across the following editorial
parara)h in the issue of June 13,
1199. That second mill was built and
has been doubled and is being opera
What we said then is applicable to
day. Newberry has grown wonder
fully since 1S99 both in wealth and
population and the third and fourth
mill can be built easier today than
the second mill was tien. Those Inter
ested in promoting the two mills pro
posed are. not talking for publication
but they know what they are doing
and the mills will be built. They
shoud have as we have he*tofore
said the substantial encouragement of
all the business interests of this com
munity. The pay roll of the two mills
amounts now to about $20,000 per
month the greater portion of whieh
is spent in this community. To dou
ble that pay roll monthly would add
greatly to the business of this com
The following is the editorial from
The Herald and News of June 13,
1899: ' --
We understand that plans have been
put in operation which praetically as
sures the erection in the near future
of another cotton mill in Newberry.
At the first preliminary meeting of a
few of our pregressive business men
there .was assured a subscription of
$50,000 of the capital stock. The
other can be easily raised if the plan
is properly presented to the people.
We need to move. We have been
still long enough. We should: have
built our second mill five years ago
and we should now be talking about
a third mill. But because we have
not built even the second is no rea
son for further delay. There is
plenty of money right here in the
county to build this mill and a good
part of it is not earning anything
just now. Put itina cottonrmill and it
will not only earn you dividends but
it will also put money in eirculation
in the town and help your business
and give a market for cotton and oth
er farm produce much better than we
have now. We 'hope there will be no
delay in organizing and going to
* work. Everyb~ody wants to see the
mill built and now is the time to be
* gin. Every 'week delayed is a week

ov. Ansel .wants to know why an
election has not been ordered in Wil
Jiamsburg county on the voting out
*of the dispensary inasmuch as the pe
titions have been on file .with the sup
ervisor since May 1. The law requires
that. the petitions must be filed by
May 1 if 'the election is to be ordered
at all. Petitions have been filed with
the supervisor in Newberry county
since May 1 also, and we have 'heard
no inquiry or complaint as .to the sup
ervisor of this county. As .a matter of
fact does the law fix any particular
time within which the supervisor must
aet. Everythingis working very
smoothly here and there is no need
for any rush.
THAT CLEMSON TROUBLE.
The Spartanburg Herald thinks that
"All this talk about Clemson Col
Ihe losing its'- military feature be
cause Capt. Chas. D. Clay has sent in
his resignation as commandant, is t.he
veriest rot." Our contemporary must'
not, be fully posted as to all the facts
of the case. But even admitting that
there is not the slighiest d anger of
the military feature of Clemson C>l
lege being impaired as a result of the
trouble between Commandant Clay
and the members of the senior class
which eaused his resignation, The
News can see that the whole coller.e
is beinz injnred thr~ourh allowing
students to disreC!'ard( diacipline and

Now in W. T. Tarr
the faculty is, respected and the rules i
and regulations laid down for the
guidance and government of students
are rigidly observed. .
The Caay incident may or may not 1
be noticed by the .military authorities
of the government at Washington
that remnains to be seen-but it is a
more important fact, still, that Clem
son cadets have been guilty of insub
ordination and the incident which oc-1
eurred last commencement is of suffi
cient importance to justify a far-I
reaching and s4tisfying~ investigation
of such matters in the college. Young ~
men are sent. to Clemson college*to be
governed by a faculty of men -who are
chosen for Their qualifications: to gov~.
ern and to .teach, and whenever the
faculty fails in governing the stud-i
ents at tha.t moment the faculty is
governed, And when that change sets
in at any institution it were far bet
ter to close its doors and turn the I
class room over to the hooting owls..
Col. Clay may or may not have been ~
in the wrong in the incident referred
to, but he was in military command of
the cadet corps and his position should ~
have been respected. It was not the I
province of a few students to over-t
throw him-there was.a proper meth
d of redress for any injury or inj.us
tice that they may have imagined that
they suffered.-Greenville News.
It is very unforturate that this
trouble should have arisen at tFhis
tiu:ne / Clemson and the incident
should be investigated but the board a
is a self-perpetuiating' one and beyond
the reach of the legislature and if it (
as sustained the boys in this act of (
insubordination what are you going to C
do about it. Certainly there can be no a
military feature at any school worthy a
the name if the orders of the com- t
manding officer are to be ergarded c
lightly 'or if the boys are to be up- y
held in their insubordination by' the 1
trustees and the ordeis of the corn- II
mandant to go for naught. From what
iformation we have of the affair thati
seems to be about the situation. f
The disobedience may have been
in a matter of small consequence in<
the eves of the trustees but if it was
disoedience and the trustees upheld '1
the~ (eaI in it. the whole miilitaryv I
feature will count for nothine and no ]
self-respecting commandant could do
otherwise than resiQn. ..

The firs't case was brought against
SMr. Solomoii for talking to a mem

fagistrate Bowles in Greenwood
ounty against W. H. Stallworth. As
his case before Magistrate White was

White has undertaken to decide a

nd that it was 'his duty .to have bound
'he party over to the circuit court for

is opinion, stated that he considered
