E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
E;ntered at the Postoffice at New
vy, S. C.. as 2nd class rnatte7.
Tuesday, November 9, 1909.
The report seut out from Savannah
that Miss Bennett had advocated wo
man suffrage in the convention which
met some weeks ago, is denied. Miss
Bennett says that she never said any
thing of the kind, and is not an advo
cate for woman suffrage.
The Heyald and News has a sketch
of Bishop H. M. Turner of the A. M.
E. church, written by Col. D. A. Dick
ert which we hope to print in Fri
day's paper. Bishop Turner, Col.
Dickert says, is the greatest living
man of his race and is a native of
Newberry. We make mention of this
article so that if any of his race or
any one else would like to have a
copy of this article orders for the pa
pers may be placed in advance.
Following this article will be oth
ers by Col. Dickert. Better subscribe
so as not to miss any paper.
The suggestion by The Idler and
Uncle Brigs to sell the old court
bouse seems to us to ibe a good one.
Something ought Iro be done with it.
If it were sold to the town with suf
ficient land all around to form a lit
tle 'park it could be made an attraet
ive place and useful as well. The Y.
M. C. A. movement seems to have
gone overboard. The public library
idea is a gZod one. - Let the city offi
cials get together and make a propo
sition to ithe county and buy the
If The Idler is trying to poke a
. joke at the editor of The Herald and
News there must be a mistake some
where. In this country a man can
run a newspaper and run for office alt
the same time, though he may not be
a howling success at either. The best
'way to get office i1 this cou:nty is to
hold 'two or three already and thean
* run for another.
, The Herald and News has been
ranning special articles from a spec
ial correspondent under the title of
T'he Idler. Some of the articles of
this writer have met with favor. We
have secured another special writer
who will give observations under the
head of 'Lights ad Shadows. -This
writer prefers to select the name
Mirth though sometimes, at least,
serious thoughts may be injected. The
.ideL of both these special writers is
to be helpful -to the community and
to give their articles a local flavor.
At the, same time moralizing when
they so prefer.
The Herald and News is first a
newspaper, but we hope along with
the news to furnish reading which
will be helpful as well as interesting.
You should miss no copy of the pa

A good deal is being said in the pa
pers about. our jury system, both by
the editors and others. It is gener
ally that way when there is a miscar
riage of justice. Or rather when
some people think that justice has
not been meted out to some one
charged with crime. The jury system
is all right.
One thing might be changed that
would be an advantage. There are
entirely too many exemptions. When
you take out all the people who are
exempt by law from jury service you
have cut out a large proportion of
those citizens who are best equipped
to render intelligent verdicts. There
should be no exemptions 4t all.
As to reducing the number of
names to be placed in the jury box
we are not prepared to say that
would always result in getting the
better men. Even if it did it would
leave too much power in the hands of
the jury commission. It would be all
ight so long as we had the !right
men composing the jury commission,
but suppose the commissioners should
want to manipulate the jury, for any
reason, and the number to be placed
in the box was materially reduced,
what would keep them from putting
in that class of men best suited to ac
complish their purpose. The stand
ard of the best men is left to them.
Better try to instil a higher sense
of right and justice in the minds of
the people. This cannot be done by
abusing the juries.
As to changing the time when the
jury box ean be filled there can be
no objection to that, but just how it
will help to get a better class of men
we do not understand.
Everybody is worrying about Cu
ba except -the Cubans. They seem
to be getting along very well down
Not only so in Cuba, bui. in other
places there are people who are try
ing to regulate other people and wor
rying about them. And why not let
them if it gives -them pleasure.
Congressman Aiken's bill for
prohibition in the city of Washing
ton 'has made the whole city sit up
and take notice. There will be things
doing in -the capital of the nation
next winter.-Anderson Mail.
And probably a little of the "joy
ful' will be left after Mr. Aiken
introduces his bill.
