COMPANY B. FLAGS.
Mr. Peterson Says He Did Not In.
tend to Wonud or Irritate-Only
Wanted Flags and Facts.
To the Editor of The Herald and
N_ws: I have read the statement of
]s. J. A. Burton. The spirt of com
Tbdeship is strong, but the colors' of
tte old company are very dear to
tlose who saw service. Only those
C our comrades can appreciate our
-eelings. Those colors do not belong
to the family of any individual mem
ber of the company, livng or dead;
and the plan was to let them be
handed down to the keeping in trust
to the survivors of our company ac
cording to rank. We had afterwards
decided, however, to place them in the
Telic rooms in Columbia. It was with
that in view when the survivors un
dertok to get possession of them and
we thought the successful plan, after
I had failed to secure them, would
be through the Daughters, but in my
letter requesting the Daughters to se
cure them I stated that "we will form
ally turn them over to the U. D. C.
XMemorial day." And we did not in
-tend they should be turned over "in
behalf of the family" of any member
of the company. I saw the program
published and read where it said
"Presentation of flags," but none of
the survivors of Company B thought
for a moment it referred to our old
flags because we had not been noti
fied that they had been received by
e Daughters, If we hid konwn it
would have 'een present. Un
nately we are not mind readers
we did not think the Daughters
request their presentation
ut some notice to some survivor
e survivors want the flags plac
n the relic rooms, but want the
t and true history to accom
them. That is all.
to Dr. Cromer's statement I am
tive that my memory is not at
lt. "This matter has not been dis
ssed from my mind," as it has from
e mind of Dr. Cromer, and I know
the statement I made of the con
ersation with Dr. Cromer to secure
e flags is absolutely correct in ev
ery particular, his statement to th,
*Mrs.4 Connor turned the flags over
o Mr.2 Speers the day Captain Con
or ws buried. It was two or three
eek.. after the burial of Mr. Speers
ed I. mentioned to a mutual friend
k him to get the flags that they
t be placed In trust in keeping of
enext ranking survivor, Mr. E. P.
Bradley, as had been agreed upon by
the survivors, Mr. Speers himself be
9Ing one. There was nothing in that
to annoy or Irritate.
I have no desire to wound the feel
ings of anyone and would not have
gone in the newspaper at all but for
the publicatioli of an incorrect state
ment which wounded the feelings of
all the survivors of +%.t old company.
I did not take the initiative in rush
-ing into print I only did so to keep
the record straip'ht. That is all.
As to the venom and -poisom and
slur at me pe-'nally in the doctor's
closing par'~rar" I will let that pass,
for like many otbers who were not
old enough to. bear arms and to fol
low the flags, h"" can not appreciate

can not, therefore, appreciate our
I regret this newspaper contro
versy as much as anyonne. My main
'purpose was to place these flags in
the custody of their rightful owner~s.
That has been accomplished. f ur
purpose now is to have them placed
along with other relics of that great
struggle in the capitol building at Co
lumbia and to have piaced along with
them their true history. Not to wound
or irritate. No, no, not that. This
ends the newspaper controversy so
far as I am cocrnn

The conference that is to ,be he
here this week beginning Thursd
evening will no doubt be one of t]
largest attended. most enthusiast
and best conference that has ev

several reasons for this, one is b
cause of its being held in Newberi
which is centerally located, and all
its well known reputation as a fi:
convention city, where its visitors a
lavishly entertained.. Another is ti
conference has been well advertisi
(much more so than any previo,

the greatest reason is because 12

by far the best program that the co

Simp Sanders in Jail Again.
Last Friday a young white man was
attracting attention along Main street
from the depot, as he was handeuffed
*and bound with a rope, one end of
the rope being held by a man who:
accompanied him. Those who saw
the couple naturally supposed the
young man had committed a great
crime and was being brought in by
some officer of the law. The man
carried his prisoner to the sheriff's
office and turned him over to Sheriff
Buford. The prisoner was Simp San
- ders, who is no stranger to Newberry
jail, as he has been there before, first
Swith John and Frank Crouch, and
again upon his recapture after escap
ing with John Crouch, all of which Is
too familiar to need repetition here.
Suffice it to say that after his recom
-mitment by Sheriff Buford, some time
ago when Sanders was caught while
.visiting his wife in Union, he was re
leased on bond by his father-in-law.
Since then Sanders has been getting
into more trouble, it is said, and hie,
father-in-law had him brought to
Newberry, making sure of not losing
the $300 whiich had been de
posited for the prisoner's' appearance
at court. So Simp Sanders again re

burg because he wanted to marry
Simp took his promenade up Main
istreet well, and wore a smile which
- broadened into a laugh when he met
the sheriff in his office and began
chatting with him as though he was
on a pleasant visit. Maybe he feels
sure of being acquitted of the charge
of having robbed his Syrian brother
in-law, Bob Ammon. But be that as
it may, no doubt Simp and John had
much of interest to tell each other of

West End Defeats Clinton.
West End on Saturday iternoon
scored its fifth victory in as many
games by defeating the: Clinton team
in Clinton, the result being 4 to 3. The
latter part of the game was very ex
citing, with the score 4 to 0, Clinton
began her run-getting in the eighth,
and made the score 4 to 3 before thd'
Newberrians could stop. them.
Waldrop, pitching for West End,
was invincible up to the seventh, not
a -hit being secured off his delivery
until the seventh inning. He let up
at that time, however, and in the
seventh and eighth three hits were
secured by the Clintonites. In the
ninth, with two men on bases, he
struck out two, and threw the third.
man out at first, retiring the side..
Riddle, for Clinton, also did effective
work in the box,, allowing only three
hits, and striking out seven.
Wicker, for Newberry, carried off 1
the batting honors of the day, his
three-bagger to deep centre in the
first inning, with three men on bases,
being .responsible for Newberry's
scores. Having brought in the three
runners, he himself scored on an er
ror. This wound up West End's run-1
getting for the entire game. Smith
on third played a perfect fielding
game for Newberry, accepting every
chance that came his way, and some
that did not. His fielding in several
instances bordered on the sensational.
Wessinger put up a good game at
short for the locals.
Hammett. was the heavy-hitter for ~
Clinton, his long hit in the seventh ~
apparently being responsible for the ~
rally of his team in the seventh and
These teams will pull off two games 1
in Newberry the last of this week, I
playing one at College park on Fri
day afternoon at 4.15, and the other
at West End park on Saturday after
noon at the same hour. Eidson will
be sent to the. mound for Newberry,
and Bailey will twirl for the 'visitors
on Friday. These are two of the best
amateur pitchers in the State, and it
is needless to say that they will make
the game interesting.
