Four Negro Men Charged With

Dog's in the well;
*Who put him iu ?~
Mr. Belton Stoekman swears to the
best of his knowledge and belief that
Julius Kinsler, Jdhn Kawkins, Mack
Jackson and Forrest Davis did. War
rants were issued against them by
Magistrate Chappell, and they were
arrested way down near Holley 's
ferry, on Saluda river, in No. 9
-'township, on Friday .by Constable
Cannon G. Blease and Mr. B. T. Bish
ep,*and are now in jail awaiting trial
on the charge.
Mr. Stockman, who lives four miles
.south of' Prosperity, has a well by
the roadside, w4ere travelers often
stop to drink and to water their hors
es, and he never objects; in fact, 'iae
takes pleasure in providing this ac
commodation for the public. On the
night. of October 28th-circus day in
Newberry-a crowd of negroes in
wagons were returning to -thpir
homes and stopped at the well to
water their teams. Mr. Stockman 's
dog, said to have been a good . dog,
was at the well,~.and -some one or
more persons threw it in the well,
and it was drowned; or it may have
been killed and Vlhen thrown in. Mr.
Stoekman 's family knew nothing
about it, and the next day continued
to use the water for cooking and
* drinking; in fact they did not dis
cover that there was anything the
matter with the water,. until the
mules ref used to drink it; then an
investi,gation revealed the presen?ce
of the dead dog. Mr. St.oegman made
further investigations, which led him
to believe that the four men named
above threw the dog in the well,
and he took out the warrant against
them. The action is brought under
Section 121 of the criminal -code,
which makes it a crime to put poison
into wells or springs.-The Observer.

Pleas of Guilty Taken Yesterday
Morning.-Number of Cases on
Docket for Trial.
The fall term of the general ses
sions court for Newberry county con
vened yesterday morning at 10
o'clock, with Judge S. W. G. Shipp,
of Florence, presiding. The court. will
be in sessioh only this week, no jury
having been driwn for next week.
While there are a number of eases on
the docket, it is thought .that they
can be disposed of during this week,
and a good start was made yesterday
morning when several pleas of guil
ty were taken in cases which would
have required considerable time to
Solicitor Cooper and all the other
officers of the court were on hand
when court convened yesterday morn
ing. A number of bills were handed
out. to the grand jury. JUdge Shipp,
in iharging the grand jury, stated
that he would not go into a lengthy
charge as to their general duties for
the reason that they had been charged
by two judges who had preceded him
during this year. He, however, call
ed attention to the oath which they
had taken,- in that they were to pre
sent no man on account of enmity or
fail to present any man on account of
friendship. 4 grand juror, he said,
had great power,'holding one of the
most important offices which a citi
zen could hold. "The law and order
of your county," he said, "depends
to a large extent on your discharge
of your duties. Your duties are not
confined to the bills which the Solici
tor has handed out, but wherever.it
comes to your knowledge that. there
is any violation of law, then it. - is
your sworn duty' to. present .7any per
son who has violated the law, it makes
no difference who he .is. It makes
no difference about his social position
or whether h is a man of wealth or
a poor man, every one stands equal
before the law, and any one, no mat
ter who he is, who violates the law,
should be made to face a jury of his
Judge Shipp then took up the spe
cific bills of indictment which had
been handed out to the grand- jury
and gave a clear. charge on the law
as to eaeh offence charged.
Eliiott Gallman and Melvin Wilson,
both colored, pleaded guilty to man
slaughter on a charge of murder in
the killing of Nueks Tucker in Au
gust, 1908. The case was investigated
by Solieitor Cooper, who agreed af
ter a thorough investigation to aecept
a plea of manslaughter. Gallman was
sentenced to serve five years and Wil
son three years. The defendants were
represented by Eugene S. Blease, Esq.
Jonas Sulton, colored, pleaded guil
ty in two cases to forgery.' One ease
charged him with presenting to Shel
ley and Summer, of this city, a false
check, with the signature of WV.Chas.
Shealy, for $17.50 in May of this
year, and the other case charged him
with presenting a oheek to Summer
Brothers, for $15.75, purporting to
be signed by C. F. Lathan. Both
checks were on the Farmers and Mer
chants' Bank of Little Mountain.
Judge Shipp sentenced Sulton to
serve one year and. to pay a fine of
one dollar in each case, one sentencee
to begin aft'er the expiration of the
other. Constable Cannon G. Blease
:raed these checks and followed the]
evidences to t.he defendant, who has
finally pleaded guilty, and in doing so

THE NEW SCHEDULE.
Went Into Efect Last Sunday.-A
Good Schedule for Newberry
and All Along.
The change of schedule on the C.
& G. division of the Southern about
which so much has been said, went in
to effect on Sunday.
It is practically the schedule advo
cated by The Herald and News be
fore the final action was taken, and
suits th6 people of Newherry very
We copy a statement from the
Greenville News, which gives the ar
rival and departure of the trains
from Greenville and Columbia. There
is practically no change in the sched
ule at Newberry, exeept on No. 18,
which formerly passed Newberry for
Columbia at 1:40 p. m. It now passes
at 10:57 a. m. This will give an op
portunity for people as far up the
road as Ninety Six to come to New
berry and spend four hours returning
to their homes the same afternoon.
And the people who live down the
road as far as Columbia can come to
Newberry on the morning :tIrain and
have two hours here, returning home
The following is the arrival of thej
trains at Newbersy:
No. 15 for Greenville, 8:55 a. m.
No. 18 for ,Columbia, 10:57 a. m.
No. 11 for Greenville, 2:48 p. m.
No. 16 for Columbia, 8:59 p. m.
The change in the schedules on the
C. & G. division of the Southern rail
way, which have be n for such a
long time worked for by the people
all along the line, will go into efect
to-day. The Pullman service 6n' this
line went on October 25; and since
then, -the traffic on the line has in
creased to some extent. The new
schedules will be more -convenient to
Greenville people, and no doubt tk
passengers all along the line from
greenville to Columbia will 'feel that
the change is much for the better.
The revised schedules are as follows:
Train 18, leave Greenville 7:00 a.
m., arrive Columbia 12:45 p. m., '
Train 11, leave Columbia same as
present, arrive Greenville same as
Train 16, leave Greenville 5:15 p.
m., arrive Columbia 10:30 p. m.
Train 15, leave Columbia 7:15 a.
in,. arrive Greenville 12:30 p. mn.
Train. 17, leave .Greenwood 5 :45 a.
in., arrive Greenville, 8:25 a. .u.,
(connect with No. 42). .
Train 20, leave Greenville 9:30 a.
mn., arrive Belton 10:50 a. m.
. Train 21, leave Belton 2:00 p. mn.,
arrive 'Greenville 3:10 p. mn. (connect
with No. 28.)
Train 22, leave Greenville 3:45 p.
mn., arrive Greenwood 6:45 p. mn.,
(connect with No. 11 at Greenville).
Trains 20 and 21 make connection
with the Blue Ridge Railway at
Greenville people and all those
living in the cities aloag the line
should certainly appreciate the change
of schedules, for they have been
brought to pass only at the expense
of much gray matter and heated dis
cussions between the railroad people
and the committees from the different
cities which wanted .better accoming
dations on this division of the South
ern, and after all they are only a
compromise of the original requests
made by the committees.
