NEWERRN S I FAR EAST.
Gleanings of Life and Activity of New
berry Colony in Manila--Letter
From Joe. B. Cooley.
There are sevral Newberrians in the
possessions of the United States ir
the far East, and it is always a pleas
ure to their friends here to hear 01
their happiness and prosperity. In e
recent ltter from Mr. Joe B. Cocley
a former Newberrian and a native of
this county. to a personal friend here
there are several items which will bF
of general interest to his friends and
to the friends of others in whom New
berry takes a great interest. Mr.
Cooley's letter was not written witt
any idea of its publication, but it i
felt that he will not object to a few
gleanings from it being given.
Mr. Cooley is chief agent of the Phil
lippine constabulary, one of the most
important positions in the government
service in the far East. 'Since 'he en
tered the government service he has
had a rapid rise, and has filled with
credit all the positions which he has
held. He was in !.he United States
1 several months ago, having been call
ed to this country by President Taft
for information in regard to the Phil
ippines. Mr. Cooley and President
Taft are warm personal friends, hav
ing seen a great deal of each other
and having lived in the same house
during a part of Mr. Taft's sojourn in
the Philippines as governor.
It is learned from Mr. Cooley's let
ter that he is now having erected a
pearl button factory in Manila. Com
menting upon the progress of Manila
a clipping from a Manila paper of re
cent date, mentions the erection of tls
factory, in Calle Misericordia, along
with sixteen other buildings which are
being put up by Americ:ns, and says:
I "If the. signs of the -times count for
anything, no matter what happens, the
Americans in the Philippines seem to
have come to stay, and in spite of the
legislative jingoism of the home gov
ernment, they are going ahead and
building honies for themselves and
their posterity. And the sound of the
hammer is not heard, for they are put
ting up concrete structures."
Mr. Cooley in addition to his official
work and the new enterprise which he
is building, has also recently been ap
pointed by the courts receiver for a
concern in Manila.
Mr. Cooley in his letter mentions
that Dr. and Mrs. D. C. Turnipseed
are well, and that Mr. Cooley and his
sister,- Miss Frances, were expecting
them to dine at their home the evening
of the day the letter was written. ,Mrs.
Turnipseed was Miss Lulie HuAt, of
'Newberry, who was married in San
Francisco in February of this year to
Dr. D. C. Turni-pseed, of the United
States navy. They sailed for their
home in Manila immediately follow
ing the marriage.

THE NEAR-BEER QUESTION.
J. '. Lawson Says He Will Test Righ
of Officers to Prohibit His Selling
Newberry, it now appears, is tc
have a thorough test of the liquo:
statutes on the subject of near-beer
J. T. Lawson, from whom Constable
T. P. Adams and Cannon G. Blease of
Thursday seized three barrels of near
beer, continues to erect the one-story
frame building in the yard of the housf
in which he lives, and says that he in
tends to use this building as a genera
merchandise and confectionery stor
and to carry near-beer on the "side.
The three barrels of near-beer wer
seized from the house in which Law
son is living with his family. He says
he did not think a government revenuE
license was needed for the stuff whic
he had on hand and which he intendec
to sell, but out of an abund-ance a:
precaution, and to keep from being
worried, he had secured a revenue li
The house dn which Lawson is liv
ing and the one-story frame building
which he is erecting as his mercantile
and near-beer establishment are with
out the corporate limits of the -town o:
Newberry, and therefore the town wil
not be brought into the controversy a;
to the legality of the establishmen
which Lawson says he proposes tc
conduct. Lawson says he will test the
matter immediately by bringing pro
ceedings for the recovery of the three
barrels of near-beer seized by the con
stables from his home, and which were
turned over to Sheriff Buford and plac
ed in jail by him.
Lawson, who is a man of family
says he was born at Cross Anchor
in Spartanburg county, is 48 years of
age, and "has never yet had the key
of a jail turned" on him, and believes
he is violating no law in his endeavor
to establish a near-beer saloon for
Newberry. He says near-ear is be
ing sold elsewher in the State, and he
does not see why he can not sell il
bere. He says he has not yet sold a
bottle, as the condition of the three
barrels which were seized from hin
will prove. but that he does not see
why he can not sell it, and that there
will be a thorough test of the whblE
There is considerable interest it

MET AFTER 35 YEARS.
Two Sisters, Colored, Meet by Chance
in Newberry, After Long Separa.
About 35 years ago there lived ix
Orangeburg county a colored family
from which one of the daughters went
away as a nurse in a New York home.
.The girl, Julia Lee, was then 12 years
old. Time, with its changes and its
mysteries passed. In the course of
the years she drifted to Newberry, and
it was in this city that a few weeks
ago she met her sister. The meeting
was brought about in the following
manner: During the recent visit of
Mrs. T. A. Scarborough to her parents,
Dr. and Mrs. E. C. Jones, Mrs. Jones'
cook, Ora Maffett, observed a similar
ity of physiognomy and speech in
Mrs. Scarborough's nurse to a woman
of her acquaintance in town, Amelia
Johnson. After scrutinizing and ques
tioning the, nurse sufficiently to con
vince her that she was about right in
her conclusions, the cook took the wo
man for a meeting with the sister, as
it proved to be, which makes an inter
esting true story.
