Mr. Earhardt, who had been elected

in his office and thus approve the wis

Mr. Earhardt will hold his first court
an Tuesday morning, if there are any
cases for trial.
I'n assuming the duties of the posi
tion he delivlered- the following re
marks to the police officers of the city:
Gentlemen: I am advised that ;our
relations as officers, except your duties
:irectly connected with this court,
re purely advisory; and what I shall
5ay to you I hope will not be taken
s presumption on my part, but for
Four, my and the city's good.
The establishment of *a recorder's
-ourt in a small city is an innovation
n South Carolina. Newberry is set
ifig a -pace for other progressive ci
ies to follow; Charleston, Columbia
Ld Greenville being the only cities in
he State having such court. In mak
ng this experiment in the city gov
rnment, gentlemen of the police force,
t is up to you and me to make, it a
ccess. In assuming the duties and
aking the obligation I have it is my
>urpose, as far ap in me lies, to make
ta success or place the responsibility
or its failure where, it belongs. I
;hall not assume, in this office, any
owers not delegated to me by the
tatutes. It is mine to* attend this
~ourt and hear such cases as you may
>ing before me in a (air and impar
ial manner; which I shall do, irre
pective of friend or foe. It is up to
rou and me to give this city a govern
nent of law and order, and in doing
his, I want to impress forcibly upon
rou the fact that you will be sustained
y the citizens generally. The city
:ouncil has a set of 'ordinances, pub
ished in bogk form, one of which I
resume each of you has; take it and
tudy it; inform yourselves tho.rough
y upon the laws of the town; be alert
tt all times, feeling assured that in
ihatever you do that is right you will
> sustained and your hands upheld
iy this court. The city council passes
>rdinances and it is your duty to see1
hat they are not violated, and wen
hey are violated that the violator or
!iolators are brought to justice. Should.
ie oZ you feel, at any time, that for
ny reason you can not do this-what
eu have taken a solemn oath to do
he manly thing to do is to surrender
pour position. You should be goen
d solely by the ordinances-no mem
ier of -the city government has a right,
bould one desire to do .so, to nullify a
aw-thus causing you sto violate your
path. The only way properly to nega
&ve a law is to repeal it. The pub-'
ic will look to you and me for the en
orcement of law and order in New
perry. Much wil'be expected of this
ourt. I can deal with only those cases
rou put before me; so you can see how
nuch depends upon you. I know that
'ou are all true,. honest and faithful
nen and mean to do the right a'nd
roper thing; and in doing that I
vant'you to always feel that when the*
natter is brought to this court your
Lctions shall be sustained. Be keen
ud active, always on the alert for
aw-breakers-rememberin1g at all!
imes that the eyes of the .public are!
ipon us. As before stated, our official1
elations are purelyl advisory, and we
hould*make them pleasant and agree-1
tble to ourselves and beneficial to the
,ity. No higher tribute can be paid
m officer of the law than for it to be
.ruthfully said that he did his duty
aithfully and fearlessly, and one of
vhom this can not be said is not wor
y to w'ear the insignia of his office.1

Monroe Leitzsey gave a hot supper
Saturday night on his place near St.
Phillips church. There were some
negroes in the yard gambling and it
seems they had Monroe's lantern. Mon
roe decided that he needed the lan
tern and went to get it and was in
formd that he must not take it. Be
ing his lantern, he felt he had a right
to it and proceeded to pick it up. As
he did so, Jim Wilson, one of the
negroes in the game, drew his pistol
and shot Leitzsey in the face just be
low the left eye. Leitzsey came to I
Dr. W. A. Dunn to have the wound
dressed and while dressing it "the ball
dropped out of Leitzsey's mouth. Dr.
Dunn says that the wound is not se
Another hot.supper was in progress
on one of Mr. S. P. Crotwell's places
near town. It is stated that at this
supper there was a good deal of whis
key. In the row Ben Jones was cut
across the face and back by Will Bax
ter. Dr. W. A. Dunn took eight stitches
in the wounds on Jones, but the doctor
says the wounds are not serious. Bax
ter evidently had a dull knife.
Dr. Dunn had another call on Sun
day afternoon to set a broken leg for
a negro on Mr. H. L. Felker's Doolan
place. This was the result of a wrest
ling match. It would appear from this
that Dr. Dunn -was very much in de
mand for surgery during Saturday
night and Sunday.
Constable T. P. Adams went to the
hot supper at the Crotwell place, and
while .the ground was literally cov-.
