>EGROES I> PULLMAN CARS.
Says the Newberry Herald and
"Negroes have been riding in Pullman
cars on interstate tickets for a
long time. Wonder if Mr. Richards
just found it out. The place to adjust
the matter is by an act of congress.
The company could not refuse
them without being liable for damages. |
Suppose we get after congress." j
When the Herald and News says that
the Pullman company could not refuse
to sell interstate tickets on Pullman
cars to negroes it lays down a proposition
which may or may not be sound
in law. The auestion, we think, is still
to be decided. As a matter of fact, j
there are able lawyers who are of the :
opinion that the Southern States which !
have separate coach laws are in position
now to protect themselves amply
at home without any act of congress.
The supreme court of Mississippi has
bo held. In a cas-e which was decided
on the 9th of last December it deterI
mined that the so-called "Jim Crow" j
law of Mississippi applied in that State
to through sleeping coaches as well as '
to day coach?s.
The dicision was rend* red in the
suit of'Miss Pearl Morris, who had
been given n verdict against the Ala"hama
and Vicksburg Railroad for $! >.
000 because irs employees refused to j
, eject thre^e negroes from a sleeping car
in which she was riding. The court i
"held that the $15,000 was excessive,
but suggested a verdict of $2,000. In j
its decision it held that if negroes are
to ride in sleeping cars in Mississippi
they must be furnished with separate
The Mississippi ca^e may not be on
all fours with that stated by Commissioner
Richards. We have seen only
a synopsis of the decision. Perhaps it \
w<ould be of public advantage if the
railroad commission would pursue the
furfhpr.?News and Courier.
We are glad to ge set right as to
the law. We supposed that as we
had a separate coach law in this i
State, there must be some Federal j
statute to prohibit its enforcement an
inter-State tickets and on Pullmans.
It should be the business of some
one to see that th&law is enforced.

State law why could the State not i
prohibit the inter-State shipments of ;
liquor. We do not want to be mis- j
understood. We think it would b-? j
better for both races to have separate
Pullmans. In fact, there is stronger
corwrstp thp ranee: on th<?

Pullman cars those there is in the
day coaches. If our own statute'
gives us authority to do it the!
law should have been enforced. If1
the negro did what we understand;
Mr. Richards -to say he did, in |
the casee mentioned by him, then;
he was fortunate that there were no
men on That Pullman or there would
have been a separate coach for him
without much ceremony. However, |
we believe in obeying the law and j
would like to see our "Jim Crow" law j
enforced as to the Pullman company, if
we have the authority, as the News
- - j
and courier says.

Don't do that. Broth r Knighr,
Go down prepared to offer any kind

None of these fellows who ride on 1
passes have hoofs ai>d horns, Brother
Knight, and they are as harmless as
doves. They wouldn't'hurt a hair of
your head. Maybe tou can convince
them by the force of your logic that
they have been bought by the railroads |
when they accept passes. They are
reasonable men. Sometimes we think
more reasonable than some of you fellows
who have got religion on the p^Ss
question. They are honorable men.
We guarantee to furnish you a body I
guard to see that your person is not
harm-ed, if you think there is danger.
No use for you to get excited. The
regulation of the moral world or the
civic righteousness o\ your brethren
is not all resting on your shoulders.
Console your soul in patience and do
not become excited for you might have
nervous prostration in your strenuous
efforts to regulate the affairs of others.
Wp are nor surprised at anything |
these days, however. Just the other
day we read where the legislature of
some Stat-;j was seriously considering
a^ bill prohibiting the women from
buttoning their dresses in the back,
unl ss they would use buttons at least
an men 111 uiameier. (
The whole tendency of rhe times is j
towards a paternal government, and I
that is the way the nations of the past 1
went to their downfall. We are try- j
ing to regulate everything by statu- j
tory enactment. Let us hark back to j
the good old customs when manhood
and honor counted more than law7.

ROCK HILL WILL WELCOME ALL j
A meeting of the county superinten- :
dents' association is to be held at Rock <
Hill during June, and on the principle
that they followed at Clemson, w<e i
suDDose that the retiring sunerinten- 1
dents would not be eligible to partici- !
pate in the meeting of the association '!
at Rock Hill, but their successors will I
attend this meeting?Newberry Herald
The Herald knows nothing of any
difference that may exist among the I
members of the association of county
superintendents of the State, and nothing
of the matter referred to by the j
Newberry Herald and News, but we do |
know that Rock Hill will be pleased to j
welcome all members of the organiza- I
tion, newly -elected to otherwise, to any
convention which may be held in this '
city. Let the memb^xs of this organi- j
zation come to kock win ana iorget j
their differences while, they enjoy the
delightful entertainment for which this
place is famous.?Rock Hill Herald.
Th^re is absolutely no differences
between The Herald and News and
any county superintendent of education.
The editor of this' paper is on
the most friendly terms with all of the
superintendents and is himself one of
them. He goes out of office on July .
1, as do several others in \he Stat?.
The reason for the observation was,
that a meeting of the county superin- ,
tendents was held at Clemson a few j
days and those who are going out of j
office in July were not invited to at- |
tend. If the fact of their going out
of office is the reason for not -wanting
them at a meeting of superintendent at
Clemson by the same process of reasoning
they would not be wanted at
WintJhrop. That is all. President
Riggs says he wanted all of them but
he didn't hava the price. That is all '
right. President Johnson has invited
the retiring ones to come. The meeting
comes the same time as the Press
association so we will have to decline
President Johnson's very kind invita-j,
Xobodv is fxcit'-d or out of humor
and thorp are no differ nccs among
the superintendents. All is as calm
as a May morning and if everybody
isn't happy he ought to be.

I notice from the paper that some
one wants to know why some dogs
are muzzled and some are not. That

because he will be much happier. The

where th?y are getting busy oa thejbuilding
of a.trolley from Augusta to
[Columbia, and where they held a mass
! meeting at the little town of LexingIton
and appointed committees to secure
the rights of w?y in order to se|cure
the trolley line by that town.
And everything and everybody seem
ed to be busy and interested ia the
j building of the line, and it will be
built, for what the people of a com
j munity determine to do and go after
in the right spirit they can usually
| get. There was talk once in the long
'ago^of building a trolley by Newberry.
I am afraid Newberry is something
like a town of which I read once. There
| was talk of building a trolley into
the town and a meeting was held to
] discuss the matter, and one farmer
persisted in opposing it, but he would
j advance no real reason for his posi!
tinn- Finally he was asked to state I
just what his objections were. Then
he braced himself up and said: "This
is a small village. We ain't got many
folks here. If the trolley is brought
here it will be easy to get out, and
we might lose all the folks we have.
That's my objection." I was just wondering
if that could possibly be the i
j objection of any the good people of '
jXewberrv. We should wake up.

that has not washed away into Scott's

leading from College street to Caldwell

inst wondering whv the alderman from
Ward 3 should build a nice paved
sidewalk along up by Summer's garage
and not build one on to the depot.
Let's see, who is alderman from Ward

I wonder if he has ever been along
that sidewalk from College street to
the depot. I am sure he has never
been along there or he would have
insisted on fixing that sidewalk while
he was building alongside- the Summer
