SEWERAGE BONDS VOTED.
3y a Small Vote But Large Majority
The City Decides to Extend
The election which was held wn
['uesday was so quiet that very few
)eople in Newberry knew that an
lection was being held. [i fact ev
,rybody took so little interest in it
hat only about 117 of the voters of
:he city had registered for this elee
It was generally understood that it
was absolutely necessary to extend
>ur sewerage system and that in order
:o do so the city would :have to issue
:onds in order to raise the money.
It is unfortunate, however, it seems
:o us. that so little interest would be
:aken in a matter of so much impor
:ance to the city. In fact in elections
)f this kind our people do not take
e interest which they should.
In the election on Tuesday, for in
;tance, there were only 72 votes cast.
Fifty-seven of these favored the issue
)f bonds and fifteen voted against the'
;So by a small vote of the electors
)f this community it has been decid
d to issue $40,000 in bonds for the
ixtension of the sewerage. Of course,
:hat is sufficient to make the election
egal but it does not show that inter

To Provision Made for the Payment
of His Salary-Question Should
At the last session of the legigla
ure the senator and representatives
rom Newberry county with a view,
e presume of saving some expense
o the ordinary county fund, and also
Jn view of the fact that our school
iund has a surplus, provided in the
eneral salary bill that the salary of
:he county superintendent of educa
:ion should be paid out of the school
As stated in The Herald and News
ome weeks ago, this act is in plain
ind direct violation of the constitu
ion of 1895.
The salary act of 1909 reads as to
the salary 'of the county superinten
dent of education of Newberry coun
tv as follovws: "County superinten
ent of education nine hundred dol
lars annually. 'Said amount to be
paid to him out of the unappropriated.
public school fund of the county.''
Article II section 4 of the consti
tution reads: "The salaries of the
State and county school officers and
ompensation of county treasurer for
collecting and disbursing school mon
eys shall not be paid out of the school
fund but shall be otherwise provided
for by the gneeral assembly.''
County Superintendent of Educa
tion Wheeler drew his salary out of.
the county funds as he !had been 'up
to the 'date at which this general sal
ary bill of 1909 became operative and
in view of this act the county attor
ney, Mr. Holloway, declined to pay'
the salary further out of the county
fund, and Mr. Wheeler knowing the
provision of this act to be in conflict.
with the State constitution has n6t
attempted to draw !his salary from the
school fund, and possibly if he did
te county treasurer would withhold
As it setands Mr. Wheeler has been
without his salary since March and.
no action has been taken by anyone
to arrange so that he might draw 'his
alary. Unless something is done he
will probably have to go without h~s,
slary until the legislature can change
the eneral salary law as to this of
flee in Newberry county.
It is not right that Mr. Wheeler
should be deprived of his salary. It
seems to us that if he were to make
iemand on the county treasurer in
ccordanee with the act of the legis
ature and the county treasurer were
o refuse payment, then an issueI
would be j.oined and the case coul
be taken to the supreme court and
without mu.eh delay a decision could
be had and he then could draw his
ala-ry as he had formerly done.
