t ONE YEAR.
The present proprieo have had
charge of the HERALD AND N EWS just
ve year to-day. On the 9th of last
March they brought out their first pa

work, but amidst .his toil they have
had much to enc,Lage and to stitnu

capital but the little brains and nus

misgiving that we undertook the work.
But the people of Newberrs have been
kind to us. Our business in all dlepart
ments has grown and we are adding
new subscriber.: every week. There is
I room for more names on our list, how
ever, and those who are not subscribers
should rose no time in having their
one ea tes placed on the list.
We celebrate this, our first ainiver
sary, by presenting the HERA.LD AND)

dress. We hope at an early day in the
future to naike other inmprovements in
Being naturally ntiodest, we do not

The New York Herald says: "The
tendency of our pension legislation
business is a mania," and there is much
truth in the assertion. The pension
agents and lobbyists at Washington
exhibit iore interest in the matter thaa
the real soldiers, for whom the pensions
are ostensibly intended. If the old
soldiers really needed the money we
presume there would be very few, even
in the South, Who would raise an.v
ol)jection to giving them even a hun
dred million. The Herald states that
in 1871 the country was paving, in
pensions, about $34,l00,(H0 a year. In
seven years it had fallen ott to 27,(NO,
0(K) annually. These payments were
rushed up under H;yes' administration
until, in 1881, the pay roll for pensions
was $50,000,000. In 1S85 it was $U5,000,
000. In 188 it is estimated that it
will take $8,000,0(N) to pay for pensions,
and possibly, with other legislation in
tended to be got through, it will take a
round $100,000,000 appropriation. The
Herald concludes: "If the soldiers
really needed an annual hundred
million, the country would pay it.
In 1873, however, when there were far
more soldiers alive than at present,
General C --t, assuredly a sympathetic
authority as to their wants, believed
that $27,0(M),1p) i year as pensions was
enough. Mr. Hayes, however, in a
monment of culpable weakness, open,_d
the sluices and the flood runs. 'he
pension lobby is one of the strongest in
Washington. Pension lawyers and
pension agents revel in a new industry.
They clamor for the breaking down of
every hearer between theni and the
Treasury. Clubs which call themselves
'Grand Armies' frame bills and demand
more money. The tone of these
demands is truculent and offensive.
Whoever says a word against all the
money an army post requires is a
traitor, and, as experience shows in
such matters, the mere sight of money
inspires a rage for more. It i- a
mania, acute and growing, and full of
danger to the finances of the country."
And thus it is that the money goes.
The politicians and presidential
aspirants are afraid to oppose anything,
for fear they will lose the army vote.
That was a ringing and telling speech
of Senator Vest in the Senate the other
day on this question. The large sur
plus in the Treasury is an injury to the
country. It induces too many to be
seeking help from the Federal Govern
ment. A smaller surplus will reduce
the number of aplilicati6ns for aid from
the Federal Government, in the shape
pensions, education, and so on.
Judge Norton has decided that the
Act of the Legislature, authorizing a
Township to make a subscription to
railroads is unconstitutional. The full
text of his decision is published on the
first page of this pap)er.
Article 2, section 20), to. -whichi refer
ence is had in the (decision is as follows:
"Every Act or Resolution having the
force of law, shall relate to but one sub
ject, and that shall be expressed in the
Article 9, section 8, reads as follows :
"The corporate authorities of Counties,
Townships, School IDistricts, C'ities,
Towns and Villages, may be vested
with power to assess and collect taxes
for corporate p)urposes; such taxes
to be uniform in respect to persons and
property within the jurisdiction of the
body imposing the same. And the
General Assembly shall require that all
the property, except that heretofore
exempted within the limits of munici
pal corporations, shall be taxed for the
payment of debts cont racd under
authority of law."
It will be seen from this section of the
Constitution that the same reasoning
by which Judge Norton reached the
conclusion that voting subscription to
railroads was not within the meaning
of the corporate puipjoses of a Town
ship.would apply to a County. We do
not believe Judlge Norton's decision will
This case comes up in A bbeville, andl

at this place. We have the men here
who are willing to contribute to such
an enterprise, and we have also a lot of
promising young men who need just
such an institution. For the Associa
tion to be successful there must be a
place for the young men to go that is
both confortable and pleasant and at
tractive. Such a place can only be had
by putting up a building adapted to the
uses for which the work of the Associa
tion desires it. No bet t 'r investment
can be made by our busine:s men and
the fathers of this community than that
which looks to the protection and care
of the young men among us. Upon
them soon must fall the duties and
responsilbilities both of the aflitirs of

for the right men to take the lead in
this matter and it will be accomplished.

Newberry, S. C., March 7, 18SS.
Solicitor of the Seventh Circuit.
It is announed( that Maj. David Rt.
D)uncan, of Spartanburg, has expressed
his intention to dleclinec res.lectionm to
the office of Solicitor of the Seventh
Circuit-Newberry, Laurens, Spartan
burg and Union. Among others, Mr.
0. L. Schumpert, of the Newberry bar,
is mentioned as a probable candidate for
the place soon to be made vacant. We
migrht say problable and prominent, for
Mr. Sehumpert has every gift anod r
commendation to make him not only
prominent in the race, but successful.
As an attorney he hats devoted his studly
and practice in a very great dlegree to
the criminal law, wherein he is q1uick
aind readly at every possible point
learned, keen, sagacius. And( wh en to
these qualities are added the wvell known
fairness and benevolence of Mr. Sch um
pert's character, who shall say that any
man can lie found to till this place more
honorabily or more vigorously, for the
State of South Carolina, than 0. L.
Schumpert, of' Newberry? We are out
side the circuit to lbe sure; and if it lie
not our duty, it certainily is our heart
felt lelasture to second( the canidac(ty of
our hioniored and( high toned neighbor
across the Saluda.
