NEW CITY COUNCIL.
Took Oath on Yesterday-Salaries
Raised But Should be Still
henew cit V cou1c il was sworn in
resonlaV at 12 o'cloCk by clerk of
or:. .J ohn C.. (tbzgans. The follow
n - now constitute the city council:

P. F. Baxter, Alderman Ward 1.
J. R. Green. Alderman Ward 2.
S. K. Bouknight. Alderman Ward 3.
Jdhn A. Sena. Alderman Ward 4.
Ed. L. Rodlesperger, Alderman
A session of the new council was
then held and it was decided that the
mayor should have the right to name
the city attorney instead of having
him elected as heretofore by the city
Mayor Langford named George B.
Cromer as city attorney for the ensu
ing year. The attorney was then con
sulted as to whether city council
should elect the health officer or
whether he should be elected by the
board of health as heretofore. Mr.
Cromer decided that the election
should be by the board of heaith.
City council thzn fixed the salaries
of policemen and street . overseers
and other officers and decided to hold
an election for these subordinates on
next Monday at seven o'-lock, all I
applications to be filed with the clerk I
and treasurer by noon of December
The salaries of the clerk and treas
airer and the chief oif police and po
licemen and street overseers were
raised $5 per month, respectively,
vaking-the chief now $55 and police
en and street overseers $45 each.
The council should have made salar
ies larger than this. The clerk and
treasurer should receive $75 per
month and the cjhief of police should
receive not- less than $60 per month
nd the policemen not less than $50.
En fact these figures, are too low. The
,treet overseer should receive at
east $60 per month or more. He
hould be a man who knows something

In the Laurensville Herald of re

was; copied in the last issue of Th.

editorially commented upon in th

that this article appeared "to re

was shown this article in the Laurens
paper and in the News and Courier,

While Mr. Johnstone did not, in so
many words, say that he would be a
candidate, it might readily be infer
red from what he said that, unless
something occurred which should
cause him to change his mind, he
would be in the race. As matter of i
fact, his . frieli.ds for some time past
have underitood that he might he a
candidate for the senate, and they
have been urging him to make the
race. For many reasons, he has made
no statement, but it is generally be
lieved now that he will concede to the
wishes of his friendA throi(hout the
state. and will make the race.
Mr. Johnstone has been holding the
courts in the fifth circuit during
the fall, on account of the indisposi
tion of Judge Aldrich, 2nd has r2ailv
been too busy to give tl:e ma:-t.: cf

THE OLD FAIR GROUNDS.
Eleven of Twenty-two Lots Sold
Lots Brought Good Prices.
Oii account of the very bad weath
cr. there was not a large crowd at the
alx-. on Friday. of the old fair
riS::d. which had been bought by
Mcsrs. C. E. Summer an:I J. D. Dav
euport, and divided into lots to be
sold to home builders. The property
had been divided into twenty-two
lots, of which eieven were sold at an
agzregate price of $5,200.
The property was in the hands of
Messrs. F. R. Hunter and W. K.
Sligh, as selling agents. Mr. Sligh
said yesterday that, when the unfav
orable weather and other conditions
were taken into consideration, he had
never seen a better sale.
The other property will be held
and sold as there is demand for it.
Some of the best -lots have not yet
been sold. Mr. Sligh estimates that
the eleven lots sold are about equal
in value to t'he eleven lots remaining.
The property was sold by Auction
