MOUNTED RURAL POLICE.
Representation Nash of Spartanbi
Says He Will Support Bill of
"Establishing a thoroughly o:gai
iz?d system fer the better enfore
ment of the law in the county is i
my opinion one of the most impor
ant matters to be considered by tl
general assembly,'' said Represent,
tive J. Wright Nash when intervie"
'ed by the Herald reporter yeste
day. In outlining a police syste
for the county, Mr. Nash said:
".At present there is no organizE
concerted effort to enforce the la
in the rural districts. We ought I
have a system of mounted rural p<
lice. I find on the calendar of ti
house a bill by Representative E. I
Aull of Newberry. which will brir
this matter before the assembly.
mean to stand by that bill.
"There is absolutely no protectic
against the breaking of the peace i
rural communities. If a man breal
the law, he cannot be arrested unt
a warrant is issued. It is quite di
fercnt in the city. A1; soon as a "o
breaks out the police are on hant I
arrest the disturbers of the peace. I
the country women and children, ar
men, for the matter, can be assault(
and the offender be miles away fro
the scene before a magistrate can 1
reached. The wonder to me is th;
there are no more crimes committ(
than are. There are twenty-one magi
trates in this county, and each ma:
istrate has a constable. These ma;
istrates are scattered at considerab
distances, and the constables cann
act in concert.
"We ought to do away with a
these constables and have fifte<
mounted police, with a chief wi
headquarters in Spartainburg. L
each policeman have a beat and r
port to the chief every day in t]
year. Let each magistrate turn h
papers over +o the first policeman I
"Pav each of these men a salai
that will justify him in keeping
horse. and let him be on duty all t,
time, except the time necessary f,
-"Let these policemeui serve e
criminal process free of charge, ba
make the regular fees bout of all eix
"Give the chief of these rural p
liee power to call two or more p
licemen and raid suspected plae
iwhen he deems it necessary to do s
"Give the police of any county a
thority to call the police of oth
counties when such trouble arises
will necessitate extra force. In ot
er words. give the whole county
thoroughly organized system for e:
forcing the law..
"I believe that under such a 3y
tern blind tigers and gambling will b
come very scarc e, and that womq
and children in remote places w:
have better protection than they ha
ever had before.
"I think that this system of rr
mounted police ought to be maintai
ed for about $10.000 per year. Th
.is very little. if any, more than tl
- present haphazard system costs.
."I consider this one of the mc
important matters to come befo
the general assembly, an I I mean
help Mr. Aull with jrs bill. I.unda
estand that this system has bei
cworked with great satisfaction in sa
;eral counties in Georgia. The cou
- try is becoming so thickly settle
and 'property interests are growl
so valuable all over the land, that t:
*people have a right to expect the la
ito take care of then,"
have the Appalachian Forest.
At the annual meeting of the chad
ber of commerce, held on Tuesday a
ternoon, John H. Finley, secreta
and treasurer of the Appalachian N
tional Forest association, recently <
ganized with headquarters here, ma
a vigorous presentation of the pe
-which lies in delay as to the presers
'tion of the Appalachian forest, a:
made a strong appeal for the cooper
tion of the chamber of commerce
arousing the interest of our congre:
men in the subject.
The association is endeavoring
have a large mass meeting held
Atlanta within the next two wee]
under the auspices of the chamber
ammerce, for the purpose of ser
ing a delegation to Washington in t
interest of the bill now pending
acquire five million acre3 of the A
palachian forest for preservation
the government, and there is no mo'
ment now on foot which more strei
ly claims the attention of the orgs
ization, and of. similar hod
throughout the south.
Our people are deeply interested
the project to improve our inla
waterways and to construct the
.lic ani Gr'eat Western car
That is. indeed, a projeet which i-1
entitled to the heartiest support, but
-g without a:yx purpose it make odious
- cnmparitons. it may be accepted as
true that the preservation of the
I Appalachian forest is the duty most
immediately before us and on that
1- great work we may in large measure
a- concentrate our efforts.
n i There is no remote disposition 'to
minimize the importance of inland
te waterway improvement, but when
1- we face the fact that we are indeed
securing waterway improvement at
the very fountain head when we take
n -the Appalachians in hand we get a
clearer idea of the work which dc
d mands most immediate attention. It
w is not a question as to which branch
o ! of the work is most' important, but
which is most pressing NOW, and
e the answer to that is, the Appala
. chian forest.
We can do. no better than present
I ,some of the more salient facts in
connection with forest preservation
n The Appalachian range, extending
o from north Georgia to New England
s contains seventy-Eve million acres of
ii ground on which hard wood trees arc
-growing, or can be made to grow a,
W an agricultural crop.
o It is our only remaining source of
n hard wood supply and at the pres
ent rate of cutting will be exhausted
d in sixteen years.
The Appalaehians are the sourcc
of all the important southern streams
:aid the forest covering is of vita
d importance to them in thiiir suppl3
s- of water and evenness of flow.
~ It is estimated that the south ha
three million horse power in thes(
le streams worth yearly, when develop
ted sixty millions dollars, meaning ar
investment' in the south of three hun
N dred million dollars, saving fifteen t(
n twenty million yearly on our coa
:h bill. We have but made a beginning
=t in this development.
e- Twenty per cent of our forests is
1 already cut and its effect is showr
is in longer and more frequent auc
1e more damaging flood periods (eigh.
teen million dollars damage in on(
- year in the south alone) and longei
a i"w water periods in the summei
>r This condition has already cul
down our estimated power largel3
.11 (estimated by forty rper cent), anc
constitutes a serious and real menae'a
'to our water porwer and to the watei
supply of our cities and towns.
Our streams are rapidly filling
with sand, silt and detritus, and navi
gation of our important streams
0. Larger and more costly dredging
1- operations are yearly required t'
I keep our navigable streams open and
( it has been stated that the sums we
2- 1shall-soon be compelled to spend year
a ly on dredging, harbor works, jet
1- ters, ets., will pay the 'entire cost oi
the proposed national forest.
s- Forest perpetuation, under nation
C- al forest laws, means "perpetuatior
n through use.'' Trees are eut unde1
.1 proper methods, planted and raiset
r under scientific direction and the pro.
posed national forest in the Appala
al chians would mean not only a perpe
a- tual supply of timber, but a freedon
is from most of the evils that a con.
1e jtinuance~ of present methods must
inevita:bly bring upon us.
.t Forest perpetuation is practical
re sane. profitable in actual returns or
to the money invested, and the result!
r- eannot be onrestioned.
g It is of supreine importance to the
v- entire south, and to its support thern
n- should 'be rallied the aggressive worn
d, and aid of the whole south.
ig It is of supreme importance tha
e fthe bill now before congress shoulb

Ipassed the senate at the last session

YARMOUTH SEEKS DIVORCE.
Plaintiff is Favo-ite S ster of Harry
K. Thaw-Another Alliance of
English Nobility with Amer
ican Heiress Proves a
Lo,ndon, January 3.-The failure
of another allia.tce of the En:Jish
nobility with an American woman of
'vca"zltii beeame public this afternoon
w,e:i the Countess of Yarmouth. who
was Alice Thaw, of Pit,tsburg, dau2h
ter of Mrs. Wm. Thaw, and a sister
of Harry K. Tiow. whc se second
trial for the murder of Sta:iford
White will 'begin next Monday in
New York, applied to the Divorce
Court for an annulment of ier mar
riage to the Earl of Yarmonth.
The court has ordered that the
proceedings be held in secret. The
only inkling of the charges preferred
is a statement that the nature of ti
medical evidence given makes a-pub
lic hearing inadvisable.
The Countess of Yarmouth is stay
ing at Park Hall, near Evesham.
Worcestershire, a magnificent coun
ty seat. She declines to comment on
the ease. The Earl of Yarmouth is
supposed to be on the Continent,
where lie spends much of his time. It
has been well known for two years
that the domestic affairs of the Yar
mouths were most unhappy. The
Earl's companions and his mann,r
of living were such that he could n::t
I give his wife the position i:1 si:ciety
she had a right to expect. She sup
plied immense sums to defray her
husband's extravaganees and her
friends say she ha' condu1cted herself
admirably throughout the troubles
resulting from the unhappy marriage
and her brother's difIlcul'ies.
The Hertford family, the head of
which is the Earl of Yarmouth 's
father, and to the head of which the
Earl is heir, he being the eldest son
of the Sixth Marquis of Hertford, is
one of the oldest and proudest of the
'British nobility. The notoriety
brought upon the family through its
indirect connection with the Thaw
murder case was galling and the cli
max to the oldest son's marriage to
Alice Thaw is a bitter pill. The Mar
dhioness of Hertford, who has stood
by her daughter-in-law throughout
her troubles and has exerted herself
to reconcile the couple, is prostrat
ed with grief.
The Countess herself has -suffered
from the strain of the past year. Her
friends say she has grown thin rap
idly. They have advised her to re
main in England after the divorce
proceedings, but the Countess desires
to return to the United States for her
'brother's second trial.
Last summer on the advice of Mr.
and Mrs. Lauder 'Carnegie, her
brother-in-law and sister, who were
her guests, the Countess decided to
seek the aid of the divorce.
FLAT .LOW RATE FOR GEORGIA.
Railroad Commission to Require Two
and a Half COent Passenger
Atlanta, Ga., January 3.-The Con
stitution tomorrow will say:
''An order establishing a flat rate
of 2 1-2 'eents per mile for passen
eer travel on the railroads of Geor
gia, effective April 1,. will be issued
in a Thort time by the state railroad
"'This order will come as the re
suit of the conference of governors
held in Atlanta several weeks ago,
when Governors Glenn, of North Car
olina, and Governor Comner, of Ala
bama, met with Governor Smith to
discuss the transportation problem.
It was known that the flat rate was
discussed, but no decision was given
out. Since the conference. negotia
tions have been in progress in all the
southern states. The railroads, it is
understood, are very anxious to reach
an agreement which will give the
same scale of rates in all of the
southern states, and there has been
concerted effort on their part to
bring about such a compromise.
''In Georgia the flat rate will mear
an increase on several lines over the
present rates, which nn~w range fromx
2 cents a mile by the Atlanta and
-West Point and Western and Atlan
ic, to 2 1-2 cents for the Southern
and three cents for some of the smnai
er roads. Similiar rates are expect
ed to become legal in North Carolina:
Virginia and Tennessee, which will
issue an Inter-State rate of 2 1-2
e ents a mile thro-ugh the south.
