This is an entirely voluntary and
uncalled for fling and does injustice to
Attorney General Peeples and Mr.
Dominick and does not help Mr. Lyon
or Mr. DeBruhl. So far as "recogniz-i
ed ability" goes Mr. Dominick has as
t i I
much as Mr. DeBruhl had or has, and
this is not intended to detract from
Mr. DeBruhl in the least. Mr. Dominick
Lr-: had fourteen years' experience
at the bar at Newberry, and has
been very successful, and we suspect
enjoyed as large and as lucrative practice
as did Mr. DeBruhl when he left
They have a get-to-gether club in
Greenwood. Wonder if we could form
a club like that in Newberry with one
member. We believe it was Bill Arp
who went out in an old field just about
the beginning of the war and tried to
disband, and he couldn't. It maybe
that it would take more than an old
field for one man to get together in
.Newberry, though there may be at least
one patriot left, who will undertake to
iorm a get-to-gether club in the good
old town of Newberry. We will be very
glad to assist him in any way within
our power, if he will make the effort.
We notice that Gov. Blease's chaurfeur
has been arrested in Columbia for
exceeding the speed limit of the town !|
and fined $3.75, and the governor's private
secretary paid the fine. The governor
says if the police authorities do
not remit the fine he will pardon every
man convicted in the recorder's court.'
Of course, we know that the governor
is not subject to arrest, but when you

lumbia is twelve miles the hour, the
presumption is that the governor was j
exceeding the speed limit, and we are
(surprised that he was not dead game

make no kick.
There is no doubt in our mind that i

matter, and we presume the governor
has taken the notion that this arrest
was a blow aimed at him personally,

In Newberry the speed limit fixed

;here is scarcely a machine in tne

niles the hour, and yet we have never
leard of an arrest for exceeding the
>peed limit. Possibly the police are
lot familiar with that particular ordilance
of the city.
The Greenwood Journal says that for
i third time the grand jury has recI
)mmended that the county jail be re-1
paired. That is nothing. For at least
:en years the Newberry grand jury
las recommended the Newberry jail
