We are glad to note that our friend
1. L Smith has been suoeessful in
his race for the legislature from
Colleton county. He is a most ex
vellent gentleman and will make a
-Aine representative. He was in the
legislature for one or two terms here
tofore,- and served his peoge faith
-fully. We eongratulate the people
of Colleton county on returning him
to the legislature.
We publish in this issue of The
Herald and News the article spoken
of some time ago, a sketch of the
life of Bishop Henry Turner, by Col.
D. A. Dickert.
Such an artiele, written by an ex
Confederate soMier, a life long Dem
oerat, and published in a Democratic
newspaper, demonstrates several
facts. It shows that the whites can
-rise above prejudice, and accord
justice and honor, when due, to the
biack race, that it is possible for a
-man to rise to great eminence and
:u4nuess, notwithstanding the
handicap of color and race, and
domonstrates conclusively the wis
dom of that for which the South has
always contended-let us and our
race problems alone and they will
:adjust themselves without the aid or
influence of the North. - Tweny-five
or thirty years -ago such an article
-written by an ex-Confederate in
praise of a negro Republican, a chap
lain in the United States army, a
Puitician and '-a partizan, would not
have been thought bf. But times and
sentiments have changed.
We can't .say that we endorse ail
that Cvl. Dickert writes, neither are
we prepared to deny much -ht he
For some time he has been writing
of Newberry 's most proniinent -and
useful citizens, and as'Bishop Turner'
is a Newberrian, born and bred, he
simply accords him justice.
Espects' ty Escape Consequences of
New York, Nov. 23.-Reports, ru
mors and <legal prophecies to the con
trary, the Standard Oil company an
inomneed authoritatively today that
it had no inten'tion of seeking to pro
cure an amendment to the Sherman
. anti-trust law, but will proceed with
the appeal to the United States su
preme court, which, as already an
nounced through Mortimore F. Elli
ott, its general1 solicitor,-is to be ta
ken from the decree of the United
States circuit court at St. Paul. Un
til the supreme eourt has rendered
Sa decision, the company will consider
no other plan of doing business than
the method now in use.
Nr. Eliott is authority for the fore
Sgoing. He discussed the case with a
.representative of the Associated
Press at the Standard Oil building at
26 Broadway this afternoon, after a
conference with William G. Rocke
feller and John D. Archbold.
Satisfied With Law.
"Thbere is to be no effort on the
part of the company to porcure an
amendment of the Sherman anti
trust law,'' said Mr. Eliott.
"It seems highly improbable to
1me that there will1 ever be a foreign
,holding company organized, as you
tell me has been suggested. The com
plexity of control exei eised by sev
'eral States sets too many difficulties
in the way.
"Such comment on the case as I
have seen misses the fact that the
Standard Oil company is not a hold
ing company pure and simple, as was
.the Northern Securities company.
For instance, it owns outright, at
Bayonne, N. J., the largest refinery i
the world. There is nothing in the
wieeree to prevent the company from
continuing to do business, although I
admit that it makes doiog business
A Workable Scheme.
"Although t.he decree enjoins thec
standard Oil company from votmgn
its share holdings in subsidiary cam
panies or receiving dividends fromr
zhem, there i.s no reso why the mi
di.vidual holders. nmone whom such
,-rswould' 1.a byv'e hv e d'

those companies. A proxy system v
among our 5,000 shareholders Vould 1:
certainly be no more unmanageable t
than the same system as now used t
by railroad and industrial companies i
-with 50.000 shareholders.
'in brief, there is- -no -eause for r
the market to fear a forced liquida
tion of the securities the Standard I
Oil 0*mpany now holds. I disager. x

there Thursday afternoon, tell a 'very
ad story of the tragic affair.
"Mr. Ashley was a4 prominent
'lawyer, and, according to the account,
had papers to foreclose on a man
named J. A. Beaty, wtho lives just
out from Madison, at Lee. Mr.Ashley
went out to see Beaty and it was

amicably settled. *But on Thursday
afternoon Beaty drove up t.o Mr. Ash

for the papers. Mr. Ashley to'ld him
that they were locked up in the court
house, but t-hat he would get them in
"Bea'ty, who was angry, it is said,
without furthaer words, put his hand
in his rig"ht, coat pocket and shot
twice with a pistol concealed there.
The first shot was inieffective, but the
