FOR A Y. M. C. A.
Meeting to be Held in Chamber of C.m- b
merce Rooms on Monday Evening b
A meeting of the Young Men's Chris
tian association is called to meet at
the rooms of the chamber of commerce 9
Monday evening, July 11, at 8.30
o'clock, for the purpose of taking b
steps to arrange for a canvass to raise
the money to improve the old court n
house property for a home for our as- G
sociation as soon as the people of n
Newberry county authorize the county u
officers to turn it over to us for this v
purpose. The act passed at the last
session of the legislature which is to A
be voted on at the general election in
Nobember, when passed, directs that I
this property be turned over to our P
association as soon as we guarantee 0:
to spend not less than $15,000 in i- el
provement. This was the amount it o
was thought it would take to add one ti
story for a dormitory, and to make all hi
the inter-changes and improvements
necessary to fit it up for our use, but tl
since Greenville has raised $50,000; p
Columbia $86,000, and Sumter $40,000 a
for their buildings, we think it possible a
for Newberry to get $25,000 (at least 31
$20,000) and have two additional tl
stories and a property when complet- lit
ed equal to that of Sumter, which is
to cost them $40,000. We desire to d
enrol every man in the county in our d
association and to get the ladies of the
county to arrange a Young Woman'st
Christian association to help us secure h
and improve this property and to aid h
us in all departments of our work. h
We expect Mr. G. C. Huntington, inter
state secretary, to be present and hope tl
to have another strong friend of h
the Young Men's Christian association
if he can arange to come. Additional
information as to this meeting will be

outstanding for the man, and Sheri
Buford told the negro in his empl<
that a reward could not be paid to t.
sheriff, but would go to the man wl
located and was instrumental in tl
i capture and conviction of a party, ai
he would personally guarantee $25

Sheriff Buford was informed the n

the parties to hold him, having pr
viously given the negro in his er
ploy a letter asking the proper aut
orities to arrest Simpkins. The n
gro, however, when he had the mi
whom he believed to be the right pa
ty located, got in communication wi
Sheriff Owings, of Laurens, for son

Sheriff Buford had gone to Jackso:
ville and he secured the man ai

The man arrested denies that he
the man wanted, and it was stated
Sheriff Buford that he had lived
Florida for the past 13 years. Hoi
ever, he in nearly every particular, fi
the description of the man wante
though a few minor details are lac]
ing. He is a native of the section <
the line between Edgefield and Greel

woman named Mary. It is not certa

for 13 years, and if this be true, he

Shieriff Owings, of Laurens, learnt
that Sheriff Buford had gone to Flo

that he possibly thought the $25 pe

not mean the whole reward. No othe
reason can be assigned.
