COUNTY PRINARY RETURNS.
Quick Work in Getting Result in This
County-Phone System a Great
The second primary on last Tues
day brought out a very full vote
though not quite so large as in the
first primary. The interest in this
primary, of course, was centred large
ly in the race for governor. The re
turns In detail for Newberry county
and by counties in the State are pub
lished in tables in this issue of The
Herald and News.
The Herald and News issued a num
ber of extras, in fact nine in all, dur
ing the evening so that our friends
might know the result as it was re
ceived at this office. We suppose that
every 'phone in the county called up
The Herald and News office at some
time between 4 and 12 o'clock on
Tuesday and some of them called up
several times. It Is always a pleasure
to Th Herald and News to answer
any inquiry that we may be able to,
and give our friends throughout the
county any information in our posses
sion t4at they may desire.
The first extra by The Herald and
News was issued at 4.45 p. m., and
carried the returns from 21 of the 43
precincts in the county, and gave a
total of 1,661 out of the 2,500 votes.
The second extra was issued at 5.15
p. m., and gave the returns from 28
precincts, carrying a total vote of
2,055. The third extra was issued at
5.45 p. m., and gave returns from 37
precincts, carrying a total vote of 2,
76. The fourt extra was Issued at
6.10, and gave returns from 39 pre
cints, including 2,447 votes. That was
practically the total vote of the coun
ty, the other four precincts polling in
the first primary only 108 votes, but
at 6.20 p. m. another extra was issued,
giving returns from 40 precincts, in
cluding 2,477. Another extra was is
sued at 6.35 p. m., carrying some State
returns and at 7.30 p. m. an extra was
issued giving full returns from the
county, covering 2,554 votes. This
was probably the quickest that the
complete returns have been issued in
any election in Newberry county.
The Herald and News is indebted to
the courtesy and the efficiency and the
promptness of the young ladies and
young gentlemen who operate the
telephone exchange for this prompt
service and also to our friends
throughout the county In 'phoning the
returns as quick as the ballots were
counted. Mr. J. Claude Dominick also
assisted during the evening in tabu
lating, making the tables complete,
and it is due to his efficiency that the
totals were so correctly made out.
Of course, the young men of the office
in the mechanical department, ren
:dered their usual prompt and efficient
At 11 o'clock an extra was issued,
giving a bulletin from th'e News and
Courier covering 93,584 votes and one
from the State at Columbia covering
about the same number of votes,
showing that both newspapers conced
ed the election of Mr. Blease.
In view of the many conscientious
prohibitionists who live in Newberry
and who could not vote for a home
man as against a candidate that stood
for prohibition, the handsome vote re
::eived by Mr. Blease in his home
county is very complimentary. It
should be noted that he not only car
ried the county by a majority of 625,
but he also had a majority of the four
clubs in the city proper, exclusive of
the )fwo cotton mill precincts. This is
mentioned for the reason that it was
undertaken to show that his majority
In the city of Newberry was due to the
otton mill vote. Of course, the cot
ton mill vote is as good vote as any
ther, and all candidates for office,
we have always observed, are as dili
gent and as active and as proud to
receive this, vote as they are to re
eive any other vote.
The crowd that was at The Herald
and News office up until 12 o'clock,
and on the streets was entirely order
y and while there was demonstra
ion from friends of Mr. Blease at good
ews as it came in, perfect order and
ood will seemed to prevail.
Dr. Wyche is recommended over Mr.
vans by about 200 votes.

Several days before the election The
News and Courier, in a leading editor
"Mr. Blease cannot be elected with
the votes of the ignorant and the cor
rupt or corruptible. If he becomes
governor it will be the suffrage of men
of intelligence and integrity and self
respect which put him In that office."
The Charleston paper spoke the
truth. Up in Newberry the truth is
fully understood that men of intelli
gence and integrity and self-respect
put Mr. Blease in the office of g,ver
nor of South Ca+olina.
The half dozen county papers sup
porting Blease must have formed a
The astonished and surprised and
routed opposition are trying to figure
out how it was done.
Who killed cock robin? Who hit
Billy? Who rang that bell?
Some local Featherstone men say
there is an ordinance against ringing
the fire bell as it was rung Tuesday
night. Aldermon Baxter says so too
and that he will enforce it. As soon
as he heard It he went to the opera
house, but instead of seeing one man
he saw on to about one hundred cit
Izens swarming out so that he couldn't
tell which one did it.

Now that Blease is elected, what has
become of Harry Thaw, and where is
Dr. Cook? And did Peary really dis
cover the North Pole?
As soon as it was decided that the
Newberry man had won Tuesday night
the Blease men in crowds began to
celebrate. They got the hose wagon,
rang the bell and scampered away,
shouting and yelling. If there was a
blind tiger man in the throng the re
porter didn't see him; he did see men
and boys of 'two classes, and among
them he saw "men of intelligence, in
tegrity and self-respect," the n.ind of
men who, as the News and Courier
boasts, made Blease governoi'.
The Blease campaign management
was the finest ever witnessed.
Blease's victory was the greatest
ever made in Scuth Carolina.
DIED OF HEART FAILURE.
H. E. Bedenbaugh of Olympia XIll
Village Passed Away Suddenly.
H. E. Bedenbaugh of 1035 Church
street, Olympia mill village, died very
suddenly at his home yesterday morn
ing. It seems that Mr. Bedenbaugh,
who is an operative at the Granby
mill, had been away on a trip to New
berry, his old home. On Monday af
ternoon he returned and was appar
ently in the best of health. Yesterday
morning his wife arose early and went
to the mill about 6 o'clock. When she
returned at 12 for dinner she found
him dead. A physician was called in
and all possible was done to revive
him but without result. He died from
natural causes. Coroner Walker was
notified of the death and made an in
vestigation during the afternoon but
decided it unnecessary to have an in
quest, it being clearly a natural death.
Mr. Bedenbaugh is formerly of New
berry, but has been a resident of Co
lumbia for the past three years. He
was 40 years old..,
The above is from the Columbia.
State of Wednesday morning. The
deceased was a brother of Mr. W. P.
Bedenbaugh, of this city, and once re
sided here. The remains were brought
to Prosperity on the 8.30 train yester
day morning and interred at St. Luke's
Services at Mt. Zion.
There will be Sunday school and
services at Mt. Zion church on next
Sunday morning, beginning promptly
at 10.30 o'clock. The ordinance of
Baptism will be administered also.
