r- PROTECT THE SHADE TREES.
,is Hitching Hungry Horses Hurts the
Trees-They Eat the Bark Off
audDeface the Tree.
ad In small towns, such as Charleston,
Columbia, Greenville and Spartanburg,
it is but natural to use shade trees
it for hitching posts, but in a town of the
nd proportion of Newberry it is altogether
wrong to do so.
re In fact, one of the statutes of the
Lrt town reads as follows: "Any person
Dn who shall hitch a horse or other ani
be mal to any of the shade trees, or any
at boxing around t)im trees, on the streets
ne of Newberry, shall pay a fine of not
more than five dollars, or she impris
rid oned for not more than fiv'ei days."
'se Personally The Herald and News is
he Ivery fond of shade trees and regrets
b- to see them used for hitching posts,
F. especially when the animals hitched
ill seem to be short of feed and eat the
bark off the trees. One of the beauti
ful oaks in Friend. street along side
hthe Methodist church lot is being rap
hdily eaten away by one or more of
athese animals. We take it that it is
yonly necessary to call attention to
.this matter, and we are not doing it
for the purpose of reporting anyone,
but simply to prevent the continuance
of such a depredatiot..

GENERAL SESSIONS COURT.
Heavy Doeket Confronts the Fal I
Term, Which Convened on Non.
A heavy docket confronts the fall
term of the general sessions court for
Newberry county, which convened on
Monday morning, with Judge Gage, of 1
Chester, presiding. A number of in-,,
dictments were handed the grand jury .
by Solicitor Cooper, including the in- I
dictment against T. B. Felder, a full
account of which appears in another
column. Judge Gage delivered an ex
ceptionally able charge to the grandl
Eph Williams and Jim Workman,
colored, charged with murder, pleaded
guilty to mansluaghter, under an ar
rangement with the solicitor, and were
sentenced to serve ten years each.
They were implicated in the big negro
church row near Kinards so.ue time
ago. They were represented by Eu
gene S. Blease, Esq.
The remainder of the morning hour
of court was taken up with the trial
of Tom Todd, a negro prosecuted by
Mr. Godfrey Harmon, the charge be
ing that the negro mutilated a house
and damaged it to the extent of about
$30, the house being located on Mr.
Harmon's place in the upper section
of the county where the negro was
working. The negro was represented
by Eugene S. Blease, Esq.
SION TAYLOR PAROLED.
Son of Mrs. Josephine Taylor, Whose
Little Boy Was Killed by Freight
"Dear Governor Blease: Can't you
send my boy, Simon Taylor, home to
me? Oh, how I need him now. My
dear little boy has just been klled by
the railroad, and my heart is sore. For
God's sake, governor, send my other
boy home to me."
So wrote Mrs. Josephine Taylor, of
West End, this city, to Gov. Blease,
asking for the pardon of her son, Sim
on Taylor, after the tragic death of
her little 8-year-old son, J. B., who
was crushed to death by a freight
train at the Main street crossing of
the Southern railway last week.
Gov. Blease, in answer to this touch
ing plea, paroled Simon Taylor, who
had already served more than three
years of a seven-year senten'ce, on the
Saluda county' chaingang, and whose.
full pardon had been recommended by,
the trial judge and the solicitor after
three years of the sentence had been.
Simon Taylor, the brother of the lad
who was killed here by the freight
last week, is the eldest of his moth
er's family of nine children, three of
whom are mere tots.
It was on the night of July 3, 1907,!
at the home, in Saluda county, that
Simon Taylor shot and killed his fath- j
er, Wi'Mam Taylor, after the Iatter,
so it was alleged, had attemnpted to
kill the boy. William Taylor had been
on an extended drunken "spree" for
over two weeks, It wa.s stated. at the
trial, and on the night of the tragedy
reached home in an ugly humor, and
after abusing several members of the
family and attacking the mother, Tay
lor turned his wrath upon his son,
Simon, who had remonstrated with him
and defended his mother.
His ugly humor, resulting from the
influence of whiskey, inflamed all the
more by the opposition of his boy, so
angered William Taylor that he at-15
temupted to shoot his son, but the lad
fired first, the shot taking effect in
the father's stomic-, death resuiting
therefrom. Simon Taylor was arraign
ed and tried at Saluda for murder, and
at the September term of court for1
that county, in 1908, was convicted of
manslaughter and sentenced to seven
years on the chain gang by Judge De
In November 3, of that same year,
Judge Devore and Solicitor Timmner
mann, in a joint letter to Thurmond &
Ramage, attorneys, of Saluda, stated1
that when Simon Ta,ylor ha'd serv'ed
three of the seven years of his sen
tence they would recommend to the
governor that he be granted an un
conditional pardon. The boy has served
over three years.
It was shown at the trial, and stat-'
ed in the petition which Mrs. Josephine
Taylor, of Newberry, the mother of
Simon Taylor and wife of the slain
man, sent the governor, that William L
Taylor was addicted to the use of
drink and often had abused the mem-!
bers of his family while under its in
Following his death Mrs. Taylor
moved from the,.home in Saluda coun
ty. to Newberry, where she worked for:
the support of her large famnily. The
misfortune. -*ofa. the- family were
increased, when, on Tuesday of last!
wgjk the,., s on of this woman, .J. I
E. ayTl;~r Nhool lad, whil Icross
in the~ riroad track, was run over
nd killed by, a train. In her sorrow
nd grief, Mrs. Taylor addressed the
tbove letter to GoV. Blease, praying
'or the release ot'her son from the Sa
uda county chain gang.
The boy's grandmother, who is the
nother of the slain man, Mrs. Nancy
raylor, joined in the plea to the gov
rnor to release Simon Taylor from
:he chain gang. She says that her
on, William Taylor, abused his family
tnd that the wife, Mrs. Josephine Tay
or, was a good, deserving woman.
It was shown that Mrs. Taylor is the
nother of nine children, three of
whom are dependent on her for sup
