THUSRDAY, MARCH 1i).
Before the present administration
got cbarge of atrairs the surplus in the
Uniite.l states Trea.ury was a thing
that caused considerable alarm. It is
no longer a matter of grave concern,
in fact it is beginning to b but a myth
or a thing that was.
It is stated that the ailpro)riations
that the Republica-:s have now mapped
out will consume the entire surplus.
Sone are even opposing an appropria
tion to the world's fair of 192 on the
ground that $1,;00,000 will be Icces
sary to meet the extraor-dinary ex
penses: "1N) millions tust be appro
priated for dependent pensions; :20
n:illions a year for rivers and harbors,
the same amiount for public buildings,
as much more for a navy, and a like
sum for coast lefenses. 1i millions a
year for a postai telegraph, 10 millions
a year !fr education, not to mention
steamnship subsidies," and so it go-s,
and the surplus is expected to be gone.
The Atlanta Constittution quotes
from the Springiield Republiean on
this subject which says:
'The Renublican party 'is committed
by its platform, Presidt it's message,
cabinet reports and recommendations,
and bills already framed by leaders, to
sclhemes involving the spending of
from iH2,000p,1N to 3:),(Ku),i00 above
the present cost of running the govern
ment: and it is also committed to plans
to extinguish the surplus, on which
these schemes are based, by a reduction
of the revenues. It is manifestly im
possible to meet an expense of ),
(00),000 with a surplus of $lu0,n00,000; it
is still more impossitle to meet such
an expense with no surplus. As a mat
ter of fact, and we speak advisedly,
there has never existed a man or party
which could itake either zero or
II0),00),(KK) equal to S'4'l,INMN,Nlir or
:;(I,-x000. The Republicans think
they can solve that problem, and Mr.
Norse follows up to the point of be
lieving that zero can be made to equal
$:2 0lpt,0, but not a dollar more.
The country awaits the result with
interest-and it wili keep a sharp eye
on the principal.'
THE DIFFE 'ENCE.
The writer spent the part of a day
last week in the gro; wing little city of
Sumter. The time we had there was
limited and we did not have an oppor
tunity to see muc-h of the city. We
had the pleasure however of meeting
two former Newberrians, the Rev. E.
Tr. Hodges. tile pastor of the Methodist
ehurch at that place, and his sister, Miss
Helen Hodges. They are well pleased
with Sumter, and the city seemls to
agree with theml.
It was only about a year ago thaft
- Newberry was discussing the advisa
. b:lity and thle practicability of putting
inl an electric light plant for the light
ing of our streets and dwellings. About
the same time the matter of an electric
light plant for Sumter wvas being dis
.The difference in regard to .this en
terprise is that Sumter is lighted by
electricity, has her plant built and in
fitle trim, and every one is delighted.
Newberry has alnost forgotten that
such a thing was ever talked here.
The little talk that wye had. in New
berry abouit electrie lights was though t
to be "much ado about nothing," and
so the matter ended and still stanlds,
and the old kerosene lamp post still
.. makes our strets gloomy.
Sumter is ge tting to be quite a rail
roadl centre also. It is a very pretty
little city. We regret that we did not
have muore time tospenld there.
An effort was malde on Monday to
lynch Tulrner, who killed a man namled
Finger, in Spartanburg last week.
Turner was in jail at Spartanhurg and
the efTort to lynch him was mIade in
broad daylight. It was onIly about a
year ago that Turner killed an inotien

CHRISTIAN H. SURER.
Maj. Suber is dead.
This will be sad news to a host of
friends throughout the State. He
breathed his lazt yesterday morning at
half-past eleven o'clock. From the
first of his illness serious fears were en
tertained by his friends as to the re
Sult. For the past ten days he has
gradually grown worse and when the
end caime, it was not unexpected.
Death, though, is always sad.
Christian H. Suber was the son of
Solomon Suber, and was born near
Pomaaria in New berry County (then
)istrict) on the day of September,
11SS, and died at his home in New
ierry on the 12th day of March, 1S90.
from a stroke of paralysis which he re
ceived on the 2:,rd day of February,
The house in which he was born
still stands and is occupied by Mr.
Wi. Berly at Pomnaria.
After study at Lexington C. II. and
Laurens C. H., and in his native Dis
trict, he entered the south Carolina
College in 1845 and graduated in 1848.
He was admitted to the Bar in De
ceniber, 1850, and forming a partner
ship with Silas Johnstone, Esq.,'began
the practice of law at Newberry C. H.,
where, with the exception of the
neriod of the war, he continued to
practiee his profession until his death.
He was elected to the State Legisla
ture in 158 and served in that body
for five consecutive ternis. He again
served in the House of Representatives
for the term of 1,78-9.
After the election of Silas Johnstone,
Esq.. to the office of ('omnmui sioner in
Equity in 1S5.i, Major Suber formed a
partnership in the practice of law with
Gen. A. C. Garlington, under the firm
name of Garlingtotn & Suber. Soon
after Gen. Uarlington's removal to At
lanta, in 1869, he formed a partnership
with J. F. J. Caldwell, Esq., under the
firm name of Suber & Caldwell, which
continued until his death.
He was Major-Quartermaster in the
Confederate service, part of the time in
th, army of Northern Virginia, and
part of the time at Charleston.
He was never married.
These in brief are the main facts in
the public life of Maj. C. H. Suber. He
on many occasions represented his
county in State ('oventions, and in
184 was delegate at large to the Nation
al Democratic Convention which nomi
nated Cleveland and Hendrix.
Maj. Suber was a brainy man, and if
he had had the ambition, could have
occupied almost any position in the
gift of his State.
He was a genial frieid and con
pauion, and had many friends wher
ever he was known.
As a lawyer he was a sound counselor
and always enjoyed a lucrative prac
tiee. He was an able and eloquent
advocate, and stood high in the ranks
of his profession in the State.
But his life's work is done. He has
"passed over thieriver"' into "the quiet
haven of us all."

In the matter of the escape of prison
ers from the Edgefleld iail the grand

negligence on the part of the sheritt'.
The preseutment is a strong one and it
looks as if the grand jury had at tempted
to discharge their duty fearlessly.

le is not to blame. He is a popular
man in his county and has always

The Newberry l'ostmnastership.
To the Editor of Thle Herald and
Learning that certain notices hav-e
appeared in the papers during my ab
sence to the effect that 1 was "looking
after the appointment of a postmaster"
at Newberry, I would ask space to cor
rect such an idea. To look after the
Newberry postoflice was no pairt of the
object of myv visit to WVashingtoni. I
have thus far kept out of the unseemly
scramble for that positilon, andl expect
to continue to do so. But being on the
ground, and thle Washington corres
pondnt of one of the Charleston pa
pers having stated that the Postmaster
eieral had giv.en out that Mr. M or
mua would not be commnis?ioned, I
thought it migmht be0 advisable for mae
to ee Mr. WVanamnaker in case this
statmenC~t wecre true. After one or
t wo failures to find hini in I succeeded
in getting an interview. 1 began by
assuring him that I had not come to
ask or suggest anything. But that
being a Repubican from Newberry, a
'aee that had seemed to give him some~
rable in the select ion of ai postmaster,
and as the papers had stated that the
just in was not vet definitely set tied.
I thought lie ight like to see me. I
dd nt mention anyv name.
He answered that tihe paplers wvere
misinfrmed, that the question was
deinitely settled so fair as his dep'art
mn'i was concerned pending thec de
cision of our courts: that if Mr. Moor
man were acqmuitted he would not con
ider it proper for the government to
punish hinm af:er the court had decided
tht he had done no wrong: but that
f lie were condemined, of course he
would not be conunissioned. HeI then
ery cordially thanked me for callingr.
and otur interviewv ended. not lastinrg
over three to ive minutes. I think.
So the good people of Newvberry nmav
a well make up their minds, nokn.i
ro1c'os. that the qutestion of their post
masterhip' is definitely decided.

there was a very large audienc present
at the third day's trial of l:obert Moor

as to some point maiide by the forier
with the intention to contradiet a wit

ordered Stenographer Law to read the
testimony of the witness. which con
.sumited a great deal of time.
During the reading Mrs. Moorimian
the wile of the prisoner, walked into
the Court room, accompain:ed by her
three little children. The little ones
gathered quietly around their father,
who was sitting near the fire, reached
up and kissed him. The wife and
mother took her seat beside her hu'

former witness having been settled in
favor of the State, the examination of
the witness was resumed, "Yes.

stand by the defeuce. "I live at Joles

By the solicitor: "Very few seconds
elapsed between the time aMr.;.Ioortnan

as Moorman cursed him the last time."
R. A. Hancock was next examined
for the defence. "I knew Lee Schultz.
He vas a large man; weighed about
200 pounds, and was much stouter and I
larger than MIoorman. I had a conuver

The next witness examined was the
prisoner, Robert MIoorman. "I lived in
New berry, and have livedl there nearly
all my life. I spent the first years of 1
my life in town; have farmed since in

and got to' be time-keeper for him on
the railroad. He said he would board
me and give me twenty dollars a month.
Then he said he wvould giv'e mec twenty I
dollars niore to attend to the office I

of August until about the 10th of i
October. 1 had to go to see my wife,

MIr. Schultz I would have to leave and t
go to see my wife. This was about the
1st of October. He and M1r. Wilson c
got sick and I staid to accommodate C

asked him for a settlement. When It

from private parties, the Coroner not

Finger was driving along the road, w
not far fromr. Turner's prem ses, a little d(
under the influence of wh.skey, when
he met a white woman named Sparks,
who it seems had previously charged n
hin with the paternity of her child, pi
Finger main taining that she had done
so on the suggestion of Turner. Finger 0
abused her severely and denounced .
The woman ininiediately related the t1
interview to Turner, who met Finger h:
near his (Turner's store. Accounts
differ as to whether kinger had dis
mounted before he saw Turner or did PI
so on the latter's coming in view.
Finger became abusive and advanced g
on Turner, but was held back by a tie
gro man. Finger reached for his pistol,
the colored man still holding him. h
Turner said: "Let hin come I'll fix it
him," and threatened to shoot the ne- t
gro if he did not turn Finger loose.
The negro complying, Finger tried to
draw his weapon, when Turner fired S\
his pistol, his ball taking effect in tr

body, and killing him instantly. ti

There has been bad blood between I
the two men for some titne. Turner
was sued for $10,000 damages for the 0
seduction of "inger's sister, but at the ai
last term of the court the case was di
marked settled. Turner and Finger are st
said to have had several quarrels over
this matter, in one of which shotguns o
played a part, and which was settled
only with difficulty. r
Finger was a brother of Turner's tr
wife, the alleged victim of his seduction
being his sister-in-law. ai
Public sentiment appears to' be eI
against Turner in the present case.
'1Turner was triedl somec months ago ~
for the murder of Julius 31etzkie, an b
inoffensive and friendless German b

[Special to the Greenville New.] U
SARTANRURG, S. C., March 10.-To- g1
day a crowd came into town to lynch
Ueo. S. Turner. There was much ex- tc
citement. A throng gathered in Jail 1j
Street, near the public square, and the c
situation looked serious. Sheriff Ni
chols and his deputies, John Vernon L
and Eber Brutoni, with 3Messrs. Andrew w
E. Moore and Ed. I). Gentry were in tl
the jail with arms and ammunition n
determined to resist violence, and the
sherilgave out that some one would 0
be hurt if the mob entered the jail and bi
that at last he would plane Turner in al
the cell and arm him and let him fight al
for his life. The lynichers were badly a
organized. They had been slow in o'
getting to work and nothing had been sc
done. A bout one o'clock a team draw
ing the canmnon which is kept at thet'
encampment grounds was driveti into i
Jail Street andc p)ointed at the jail with el
a rush and a hurrah. Then the miost tr
creditable action of the day wvas taken. ai
Mayor Heninman and four policemen ,
with drawvn pistols advanced into the Pi
mioh just at the titme wvhen the posse in
the jail had their rifles poin ting through e'
the windowvs and coverin" Jail Street. a

cannon was cap)tured aind with the aid et
of sonie citizena. wvhite and black, it ct
was rolled into the jaii yard and spiked- h
with a ten penny nail which W.L M.
.Jones drove into the touch hole. This "
disconcerted the lyt:hers. There was fc
sonie boisterous talk and flourishing of
pistois, but only Benj. WV. Ewbanks
was arrested anid pilacedI in the cala- le
boose. T1he arrest wvas made by police- if

had brought the cannion into town.
The excitetment lasted some time longer
andi( there wvere rumors of large crowds e~
on the outskirts, but at this hour, five is
o'clock, the war seems to be ended, vi
but the jail will be guarded to-night. tl:
