The home of Mr. and Mrs. R. C.
Perry was the scene of unusual bril
liance and beauty Wednesday, when
-his daughter, Miss Ruth, was united
in marriage to Mr. Russell Tidmarsh.
The entire house was decorated with
Southern smilax, palms and ferns,
but perhaps the loveliest room of all
was the drawing room, where the
ceremony was performed. This was
all in green and white. Beautiful bells
and flowers were suspended from
everything available, while ferns and
hot-house plants were banked in all
available space. The young couple
were married among tropical palms
and ferns under a beil made by white
flowers. The reception ball was artis
tically decorated, the color scheme
here being yellow and green, with
myraids of candles casting their soft
light over the scene. The library
where the handsonte and countless
presents were seen, was prettily dec
drat5d wiih large red (chrysanthe
mums and green smilax, red candles.
Mrs. Boyd Jacobs here had the wed
ding book in which each guest in
scribed his name. The dining room
was all in pink and white. The table
decorations were in pink and an ex
quisite effect was given by the use of
pink chrysanthemums over the can
dles and chandelier, vases of pink
and white cairnationis casting their
reflections in chrystals and mirrors.
The guests. were received at the
door by Miss Marth'a Johnstone, and
invited 'into the parlor 'where Mr. and

MR. J. C. HIPP ARREsrED.
Charged by Brother of J. S. Gillan
as Accessory to the Killing With
There have been varioas and sundry
rumors floating around in the coun
ty in connection with the killing of
Mr. J. S. Gilliam at Old Town last
Friday, many of which rumors are
no doubt without foundation in fact,
and like all rumors of this nature,
gain volume as they were repeated.
As the case will soon be tried in the
courts, The Herala and News will
confine its report to the facts as
brought out in the nearings, which
have been before te coronor, the
magistrate and circuit judge.
On Tuesday the following affidavit
was made before Magistrate J. C.
Sample, and as the result Mr. Hipp
was arrested b(y Constable Blease:
"On March 3, 1911. one Sam Boozer
did willfully. unlawfully and mali
ciously shoot and murder J. S. Gil
liam against the statutes-in such cas
es made and prcvLided and against
the peace and dignity of the State,
and J. C. Hipp and. Alex Rook are ac
cessories to the criine and J. W.
White is a material witness -for the
State. J. R. Gilliam."
"March 7, 1911."
Mr. Gilliam, who makes the affidav
it. is a brother of Mr. J. S. Gilliam,
the dead man.
Application was made for bail be
.fore Judge Watts, at Greenwood, on
Wednesday, and bail was .granted in
the sum of $4,000. Account of the pro
ceedings before Judge Watts may be
found in another columri of The Her
ald and News.
BOOZER IN PENITENTIARY.
Was Taken There by Sheriff Buford
From Greenwood County
As stated in the last issue of The
Herald and News. Sam Boozer, the
negro who shot to death J. S. Gilliar
on Mr. J. C. Hipp's place at Old Towr
last Friday afternoon, surrendered or
Monday to the sheriff of Greenwood
county. There had been some rumors
that probably Boozer might be molest
ed if brought through Newrberry coun
ty, and as a precaution, Gov. Blease
on Monday night, directed the sherifi
of Greenwood county to bring or send
Boozer to Columbia via Augusta, and
have him placed in the penitentiary.
Sheriff Buford, when he heard thai
Boozer was in the jail at Greenwood
left early Tuesday riorning for Green
wood, and took charge of the prison
er, and carried him to Columbia.
There has been no demonstration o1
anythling that would really indicatE
that any of the citizens of Newberr3
would have undertaken to do bodil3
harm to Boozer. It was stated that or
Monday night, a number of the citiz
ens of Old Town went through the
train in sea.rch of Boozer, whom the3
thought was probably on board. It is
hardly possible that any of the citiz
ens of that community would have un
dertaken to execute the law with theii
When the train arrived at Newber
ry, there were possibly a dozen o1
more beside the average crowd thai
meets all trains at Newberry and thesE
came out as curiosity seekers, and
with no purpose to do bodily harm ii
Boozer had been on the train.
In fact there has been no demonstra
tion of any kind that would warrant
the conclusion that Boozer would not
be entirely cafe in the jail at New
berry. However, no harm can be done
by having him placed in the State

SALARY OF HEALTH OFFICER.
Board of Health Asks It be Made Same
as Policeman-Council (inats
Mayor Langford had the f&'owing
lotter from the board of health read
to he city council at the mnong on
Newberry, S. C., March 7. 1.
To the Honorable Mayor and CIty
Council, Newberry. S. C.
Gentlemen: At a mceting of the
board of health held this afternoo:1, t
was unanimously adoited as the sense
of the board that ithe salary of the
health officer be increased from .45.00
to $5ojO per month. and that this be
recommended to your honorable body
for consideration an adop-on.
The board takes the view that the
health officer, being required to do po
lice duty in addition to his regular
I duties as health officer, should be put
on the same salary basis as police
officers, and it so recommends.
By order of the board:
D. B. Chandler,
Alderman Summer moved that the
salary of the health officer be in
creased as requested by the board of
health, which motion was seconded'by
City Attorney Blease, who was
present, read Section 26. of the code,
which is as 'follows: "Section 26. The
salary of each and every officer elect
ed by the people of the town. or by
the city council, shall be fixed by the
tI own council, and the salary of no
officer shall be increased or diminish
ed during the term of office to w.hich
the holder of such office was elected."
Alderman Summer said that he was
not familiar with the law. but that he
thought it was nothing but right that
the health office.r, who was required
to do -.olice duty. should receive the
same salary as policemen.
Attorney Blease said, that in his
opinion, this section was intended to
cover all officers and the health of
ficer was practically elected by coun
cil, but that if council increased the
pay, he was satisfied. the health of
ficer would not raise any question. As
this matter 'had been ov.erloo'ked be
fore the election of the health of
ficer, it was thought but justice that
his pay should be the same as police
men, and the recommendation of the
board of 'health was unanimously

Alderman Earhardt said that he did
not want to mislead anyone, and if
he had known that this matter was
going to come up. he would have told
Alderman Summer, who was probably
under the impression that he would
vote for the repeal of the ordinance,
that he would not do so and that -he
wanted to state to nim at this time
that if he insisted upon bringing up
the repeal of the ordinance, he would
at this meeting vote against it. He
wanted to consider the matter fur
Alderman Summer said that he had
no selfish reason In the matter at all,
but he thought we ought to do every
tling that we could to encourage the
country people tc come to town. and
to make them feel at home, and he
believed that the country people want
ed this ordinance repealed.
Mayor Langford stated that he had
given instructions to the police not to
disturb wazons on this square, or in
the streets coming under the inhibi
tion in the ordinancd. when they were
loading or unloading, and, while it
was his desire to keep the square
clear, he wanted the policemen to en
force the ordinance with discretion.
Alderman Lo-minack said that he
was opposed to the ordinance when
it was passed, and was still opposed
Alderman Summer said that it was
no pet scheme of his to have the ordi
nance repealed, but he thought it
would be to the best interest of the
The matter went over without any
action being taken.
