Report of Committee on Old Cour
House-Wagon Yards-As to
At t'he meeting of tihi clahber o

commilttee on old c,:ur1t .1ou1se:
The committe. on old court hous
beg to make the following report:
We had a. metting with the count
superviesor and commissioners of th
county, the mayor and -aldermen o:
the town, and Senator Blease ani
Representatives Alan Johnstone, E
H. Aull, and Dr. C. T. Wvche beinL
present. After taking up and dis
cussing what was the best to be dont
in reference to the. old' eotrt house
it was agreed that the best and onl.
thing to do was to have a propositior
ready to submit to the democratic
convention which will be held some
time in May. As.the old edurt housE
is' the property of the people of the
city and. county of Newberry,' the
opinion. is that the only way it coull
be disposed..of for other purposes,
would be to .submit to.the d'emocratic
convention and let the convention
submit it to the democratie voters of
NevWbtrry county at the next primary
election in August. We would rec
ommend that the chamber of com
merce appoint a committee of three
or five to prepare a report to be sub
mitted to the democratic convention
in May, outlining the purpose for
which the old court house could be
best used. We wou'ld suggest that
the committee 'be instructed to con
fer with the mayor and Aldermen of
the town of Newberry, and. also with
the supervisor and county commis
sioners and the representatives from
the county of Newberry.
The matter of a wagont yard was
discussed, and a report was submit
ted by Prof. W. K. Sligh, who stat

.Policeman Thos. P. Adams on Fri
day last showed that not only
would he take -eme chances in his
e.Torts to ral"ture people who were
t:yiag t+ run away. but that he would
als at.!empt to prevent horses and
mules from eidangerin' lives and
property by running away. Mr.
Ad.ams was standing near Gilder &
Weeks' store when he eyed a run-1
away team coming toward him from
the direction of The Herald and
News office. There were three mules
and a horse hitehed to a heavy wa
gon. and the team was in a fast
gait. and one likely to do much
diamage to vehicles and people.
The policeman went in to the
1 street and grabbed hold of the sad
die mule as he came by him. The
horse and mules kept going, however,
pullinw the officer along with them.
Mr. Adams held on and finally stop
ped them near the court house. TheJ

down of a wheel of another wagon.
