ENUM RATION INXABITANTS.
City Council Having Police Census
Taken-Proper Thing to Do
Probably 8,000 People.
The city council has decided to
have a police census taken of the in
habitants of the city. The Herald and
News from time to time for the past
year or more has urged upon the city
council the importance of having this
enumeration made. Of couise without
an official enumeration any statement
made of the population was an ap
proximation. The fact is, we have
felt that the census of 1900 did not
do the city justice, but granting that
it did, there has been remarkable
growth during the past seven years,
and in order that we might know just
how many people there are in New
berry it is a good investment
to have the enumeration made, and
by having it done by the police, it
cau be more accurately taken than
by any other citizen and can be
made at a minimum of cost.
The city has appointed Policeman
H. H. Franklin to make the enumera
tion. Mr. Franklin has been on the
force continuously for a great many
years, and is entirely familiar with
every section, and is, therefore,
eminently fitted for this work.
We have contended that there were
8,000 people in the city of Newberry,
and we are sa-tisfied that unen the
enumeration is completed it will be
found that our estimate was not too
large. Mr. Franklin began work on
Monday morning and has completed
the enumeration of the citizens in
Ward one. He is taking the name of
'the head of each family and the num
ber of persons connected with that
.family and living in the same -house,
and is maKing a spearate list of
whites and blacks.
In Ward one there are
1179 persons. Of these 592 aze white
and 587 are colored. This is proba
bly the smallest ward in numerical
strength in the city, but granting
that the others are no larger and
basing the estimate on the number of
persons in Ward one would give us
about 7000 persons. If we admit
that the U. S. census which was- tak
en in 1900 wac correct it will be seen
that -the increase in population dur
ing the seven years has about doub
Mrs. M. 0. J. Kreps, one of the
leading workers in the mission field,
has kindly consented to deliver an
address on mission work at Colony
church on Sunday next. Mrs. Kreps'
address will take the place of the ser
mon at 11 o'clock. We trust that
there will be a large attendance pres
ent to hear Mrs. Kreps.
T. J. W.
The work of repairing the New
berry Hotel has been about complet
ed. In fact, everything has been corn
pleted except the putting in of the
plate glass front and the laying of
the tile floor in front. Mr. C. C.
Davis, the contractor, has already be
gun tearing out- the old brick wall
preparatory to putting in plate glass
front. When completed, this will be
one of the handsomest and best ar
ranged hotel buildings in this part of
New Depot at Dyson.
Mr. W. E. Simpson, superintendent
of the Greend4lle division of the
Southern railway has decided upox
the erection of the new depot at Dy
sons and hopes to have the building
ready for us in the near future. This
is a very important station on the
Southern railway, and while there is
no town a large section of very fer
tile country is tributary to this point,
and they need and deserve better fa
cilities for passenger and freight
business, and we commend Mr. Simp
son for showing the consideration to
these patrons of his road, which he
has done by arranging to erect this
Shelley and Summer.
Shelley and Summer, the large
furniture dealers of Newberry, have
recently moved into their new and
handsome brick building in Pratt
street and are nowy better prepared
to display their large assortment of
furniture to advantage than they
have ever been before. In addition
to their two floor spaces they have
built their first story very tall and
have on either side a veranda .which
gives them a great deal more space
and an opportunity to display their
goods to better advantage.

THE CITY ELECTION.
Books of Registration Now Open
Citizens' Meeting to Fix Time for
The books of registration for the
city ele0tion which is to be held on
the second Tuesday, the 10th day, of
December, are now open. It should
be remembered by those who desire to
participate in this election that it is
necessary to be registered, and reg
istration has to be annually. It is
presumed that the executive commit
tee of the city demoreacv will hold a
meeting sometime soon, so as to de
termine upon the plan of nomitiation
Of course,it is .taken for granted,
that the same plan for nominations
as adopted heret6fore! by primary
will be carried out.
The real election will be in the"pri
rary, as there is 'no probability of
any other than a. democratic ticket
being put up. The reasoi for.the pri
mary. is, by this mode it requires a
majority of,theelectors to nominate,
and in the general. election which on
ly requires jlurality vote it. would be
possible for. a minority of the eit
izens to eleet a.md or and aldermen.
Last year the ciizens' meeting was
not held until aboit. the. first of No
rember. It is usual.'however. for the
'andidates, to announce... Their candi
iacy before thi. time, and no doubt
it will not be. long . before those who
intend .to aspire. for municipal posi

eate to vote in the primary in the city

ant that every citizen should secure

Df registration will remain opena n
til the first of December, so that it
will be no trouble for )those desiring
to vote to securo their registration

To Go To Anderson.
Messrs Daniels and Williamson, the
Newberry jewellers and watchmak
ers, have decided to open a store in
Anderson. They have 'onei of the
prettiest stores with the lzgest as
sortment of fine jewelry, cut glass and
silver ware in this part of the state.
and it is their purpose. to open even
a more handsome establishment in
Anderson. The Anderson braneb
will be in charge of Mr. J. Guy Dan
iels. Mr. Daniels came from Ander
son with his father to Newberry
some years ago. and his return to An
derson is somewhat like going home,
tiougi lie has b(#n -in Newberry
long enough to become thoroughly
identified as one of us. Mr. Daniels
is an expert watch-maker and un
derstands the jewelry business thor
oughlv. having been brought up in it,
so to speak. We regret to lose Mr.
Daniels and his estimable wife from
the business and social circles of
Newberry but beg to extend to them
our best wishes for their -success in
Anderson, and also to commend them
to the good people of this Piedmont
Horse Flesh for Food.
Wihile Great Britain is the largest
importer in ;he world of cattle and
sheep for food, it is oddly enough
the largest exporter of horses for the
same purpose. siys the Chicago
Chronicle. The exporting of horses
for breeding and other purposes has
been profitable for many years, but
the increase since 1901 is wholly due
to the trade in horse meat in contin
ental Europe. Of the number export
ed in 1905. only 10,990 were worth
more than $100 each.
Belgium bought 21,459 at $50 or
less each, the average price being
1 $27.35. The best horse meat is .sold
for 10 to 12 cents a pound, poorer
parts for 7 to 9 cents, and the re%i
due is made into sausage-somewhat
redder than ordinary and dimpled
with fat6-which is the staple food of
many poor people.
The Netherlands trade is also
growing, the British exports having
,gained fr6m-6,231 in 1904 to 14,854 in
1905,.at. prices under $50. This grow
ing demand on the continent is chief
ly-conseqdent. upon the shortage and
high prices of other meats.

books of registration for the Town of
