SHOULD HAVE EXPERT COME.
Sometime ago a committee, compos
ed of Dr. J. K. Gilder, from the board
of health; L. W. Floyd, from the city
council; and Dr. James McIntosh, of
the commission of public works, was
named to go to Washington to inves
tigate the different systems of sew
erage and to confer with an expert
so as to determine what is best to be
done in rEgard to the sewr.-re sys
tem, whch is installed in Newberry.
It seems that our present sewerage
system is a failure. The three to five
thousand dollars, which was spent on
the septic tank last year, would have
accomplished just about as much if
it had been thrown into Scott's Cre,'k.
It seems to us that it would be
better to send for an expert and let
him come here instead of sending a
committee to Washington to confer
- with an expert.
If there were a case of typhoid fev
er in NewNberry, it would not be con
sidered wise to send a set of laymen
to consult with an expert on typhoid
fever and then come back and at
tempt to treat the case, but rather
you would send for the expert to come
here and see the case and treat it
himself. That seems, though, to be
the plan that is adopted in regard to
our sewerage system. It is all right.
for these gentlemen to examine dif
ferent systems and find out some
thing about what is the best system,
but the case here seems to be a des
perate one, and it would appear a
wiser course to have the expert come
here to treat the case. When these
gentlemen return it will be necessary
then to get someone to come, who un
derstands the building of sewers and
look after whatever ehanges may be
necessary, and why not let him come
A great deal of money has been
spent on this sewer system, which we
-have here, and we fear that the trou
ble cannot 'be remedied without build
ing a new system. When it was in
stalled, the trouble was, it seems, that
*it was in charge of those who knew
very little about building sewers. It
is a very important matter,'because
it involves the health of all the peo
ple of this community, and we should
not be niggardly in the expending of
a few dollars when the health of the
people is at stake, and we do not de
sire to be understood as objecting
to this committee making a visit to
Washington, but it seems to us that
it would accomplish a better purpose
if they ,would senid for an expert to
come here and tell us just what
should be done and then let our money
be spent in doing that whieh will re
medy the evil.
It is now only a short time before

Charleston is always very attractive
at this season of the year, and the

our young men bpe that she will re
peat the visit soon.
On Saturday night about twent;
minutes to eleven o 'clock the bar>
and stables of Mr. John J. Hentz wer
discovered to be on fire. The alarr
was sounded promptly, 'but the flame
spread rapidly and it was impossibi
to, save the building. Fortunately
the wind was blowing from the diret
tion of the dwelling house, and tha
was not endangered. There were abou
a hundred bushels of corn, twent;
bushels of oats, and thirty-five o
forty dollars worth of hay and fod
der in the building. Some of the e'or
was recovered, in a damaged condi
tion, but the remaining contents wer
totally destroyed. Fortunately, Mi
Hentz 's horse and cow were not i
the stables. Some bhogs which were i:
the building were slightly burned be
fore they were gotten out. The build
ing was insured, but there was no in
surance at all on the contents.
The cause of the fire is unknowr
although there are indications tha
point to an inicendiary origin. ]
i n p that the fire was start
ed by rats, for there is no way by
e which they could have easily gotten
hold of matdhes.
Mr. Hentz has been peculiarly un
fortunate recently, and he has the
sympathy of the community. Not long
r since he lost a valuable hose, and
about two years ago his store was
burned in the big fire that almost
t completely destroyed the town.
