S DAY, UGUST, 1891.
The Herald and News goes to press a
day earlier this week in order to let
the boys in the office all go to Litile
Mountain to-day (Wednesday) and
buy, each for himself, a summer resi
dence lot on its summit. And then, too,
to enjoy the big Lutheran reunion.
Let's iI go.
The cornerstone of Clemson College
was laid last week with imposing cere
monies. Speeches were made by Gov
ernor Tillman, Maj. G. Lamb Buist, of
Charleston, and Col. L. L. Polk, presi
dent of the National Alliance. At the
same time professors, or a part of them,
The Herald and News does not claim
any credit in the work of helping to
have the college established, but since
the people have had it established, and
it is to go into operation, none of its
friends desire more for it to be a success
than we do,; and none will be more
willing to contribute to that end than
In the selection of teachers the trus
tees have drawn largely from the ranks
of our own people. It isa matter of grat
ification that Newberry has fared so
well in the matter of furnishing men for
the faculty. But the trustees could not
have done better, and possibly not as
well, by going elsewhere. The three
Newberry men who are in the faculty
are well equipped for their various po
sitions and no better selections could
have been made.
Professor C. W. Welch, who has been
elected to the chair of physics, is a na
tive Newberrian and a graduate of
Newberry College with first honor, in
the class of 1879. Immediately after
his graduation he began teaching at
Prosperity, and soon built up a flour
ishing high school at that place. Then,
for some three years, he filled very ac
ceptably the chair of mathematics in
Newberry College. About three years
ago he received flattering offers in
Texas, and, resigning his place in the
College, he went to Texas, where he
has been successful as a teacher. At
present he holds the position of princi
pal of one of the high schools in Hous
ton, Texas. Prof. Welch is well fitted
for the position to which he has been
chosen and from an intimate acquaint
ance for the past fourteen years the
writer feels safe in saying that no bet
ter selection could have been made.
Mr. Wms. Welch, who has been
elected to the position of drawing, is
also a Newberrian and a son of Dr. S.
G. Welch, of Helena, and has a talent
to a marked degree in his chosen line.
He is at present in Paris.
Lieut. E. A. Garlington is a son of
the late Gen. A. C. Garlington, of this
county, and has won~ for himself a
amne ar soidier whetis~iiational.
For daring, gallantry and soldierly
bearing he has no superior in the army.
It will be remembered that he was re
cently wounded in the arm in a fight
with the Indians at Wounded Knee,
and has been home on a furlough.
In the matter of furnishing material
for the faculty, Newberrry has done
well. But in another line of work at
Clemson, Newberry has done her part
through one of her representatives.
Governor Tillnman in his address at the
cornerstone laying, after having enu
merated and pictured the great advan
tages that the college would be to all
classes in all parts of the State, said:
"Recalling all these things, which I
have reviewed but very briefly, and
feeling as you all do the certain future
of Clemson College, I think you will
pardon me if I say to you that the debt
of gratitude you owe to the trustees of
Clemson College will never be fully
appreciated. Some of them l.5ve near
here and are well known to you. For
their work they have all received no
pay but their expenses.
I think it is due to them to say, in
order that it may go out, to whom you
are indebted for the business methods
pursued here, and through whom you
-will have a college at one-half or two
thirds of the cost of supervision. Their
names are Col. Simpson, Col. Norris
and Messrs. Bowen, Orr and Johnstone.
The other trustees have come here
when we were called upon to devise
what steps would advance the affairs of
the College, but the work, the wheel
horse work, has been done by those five
It will be observed that in this comn
mxittee of the trustees, who have borne
the heat and burden of the day, is Mr.
Alan Johnstone, of Newberry. He has
spent much time and labor in the per
formnance of his duties on this commit
tee, and to him as much as any one else
is due the success achieved by this comn
-Newberry, it is said, has twenty
eight applicatious for admission to the
Now let everybody go to work to
make this institution a grand success.
It is established -the State is spending
a lot of money on it. It should be re
moved from politics and made a
grand agricultural college. The scheme
should be given a fair test, and we trust
the result will be that the college is a
great and grand success.
The Cotton Plant says our report 01
President Stokes' address at Greenwood
was a "fair report" with the exception
that we charged the speaker wvith mak

Well, that wa a conclusion and niol

Stokes believe the argument, or con
clusion, or statement, that he made it
his Greenwocd speech about there be

THEY REFUSE TO RESCIND.
It will be remembered that two
weeks ago The Herald and News pub
lished the proceedings of the County
Alliance, and among other things it
was stated that a resolution was
adopted asking the Liberty Hall Sub
Alliance of this cot uty to rescind cer
tain resolutions that had been adopted
by this Sub-Alliance. Since the met.
ing of the County Alliance the Liberty
Hall Sub-Alliance has met. At this
recent meeting Liberty Hall adopted a
resolution declining to rescind, as re
quested by the County Alliance. What
will be the outcome of this we do not
pretend to say, but Liberty Hall standr
by her first resolutions and does not
grant the request of the County Alli
ance in this matter. They take the
position, we presume, that the minority
has some rights, and they are right.
The Newberry Herald and News is
as ambitious as a daily. Yesterday
morning it published a report of the
Prosperity debate of the day before,
which was fuller and better than that
of any paper in South Carolina-The
Sates modestly excepted. It was a
notable achievement for our cotem

The Charleston democracy is split.
For a long time there h-s been wrang
ling and differences of opinion among
them and all sorts of factions, and last
week when the convention met the
split came. Two conventions were
organized. It is a pity that in this
time they could not have gotten to
gether. There are good men on both
sides, but The Herald and News has
not kept up with the fight sufficient to
take sides and only regrets the results
reached, and hopes that the differences
may yet be settled and the city democ
racy united. If it continues it will
likely result in the Republicans elect
ing their ticket.
Last week The Herald and News
published the address of Rev. J. W.
Daniel on "A Ramble Among Sur

The Herald and News has received
many complimnents on the iesult of its
efforts last week in publishing a full
report of the big debate at Prosperity
on Wednesday between Dr. Stokes and
Senator Butler. It was a big under
taking for a modest country weekly
and took some hard work, but we
don't mind hard work when it is nee
essary to furnish the news. To have
waited a week to furnish this report the
news would have been old and stale.
The editor and part of the force worked
all night on Wednesday, but got out
on time Thursday morning. We ap
preciate the kind words received from
our friends and contemporaries. Our
efforts will never be spared to furnish
all the news and the latest news.
Dr. Stokes told the editor on Satur
day that the report of his speech
in The Herald and News last week was
correct and accurate, and covered the
points as well as, or better than, any re
port that was published.
The Press and Banner last week pub
lished a supplement giving full reports
of the meeting of the State Alliance at
Spartanburg and also an interview
with J. T. Robertson on the meeting.
It was a big piece of work.
There wvere only three members or thne

COOSAW LOSES THE CA1SE.
Chief Justice Fuller Decides in Favor of I
the State--Judge Simonton Concurs.
[Spoelal to The State.1
GREENVILLE, S. C., August :.-The
decision of Chief Justice Fuller in the
Coosaw case was received to-day, and
Judge Simonton added his concurrence
this afternoon. The decision, as will be
seen, is a complete knock-out for the
"Coosaw octopus," and a signal victory
for .he State. The following is the de
cision in full:
STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, ex rel,
TILLMAN et. al. vs. THE CoosAW
Two motions have been argued:
1. To remand.
2. To continue the order granting a
preliminary injunction and appointing
My conclusions are:
1. That upon the face of this record
the motion to remand ought not to be
entertained. The question of jurisdic
tion was adjudict.Led by this court on
the 21st of April, 1891, and cannot be
re-examined at this stage of the pro
ceedings. But if the question were
open the result would be the same, as I
concur in the opinion of the district
judge, filed here on April 21, 1S91. (45
Fed. Rep., 804.) The motion to reanud
is therefore overruled.
2. As to the motion to continue, &c.,
the contention of the defendant is that
it has, by contract with the State, in vir
tue of the act of 1875, the exclusive right
to mine all the phosphate rock with
in a defined part of the Coosaw River,
for all time, at a royal'y of one dollar
per ton. The defendant carried on its
mining operations prior to 1876, in the
particular locality, under an act of 1870,
which gave the right to mine for the
full term of twenty-one years at $1 per
ton. The act of 1876 made the right
exclusive, and it is argued, perpetual,
because it was provided that defendant
(as well as other companies) should
have the right, "sO long and no longer,"
than it should make the returns and
pay the royalty prescribed. The royalty
thus referred to was fixed by the act of
1870. It was decided in State vs. Pacific
Guano Company (22 S. C. 50,) that the
rule of construction applicable to the
right to mine in the beds of navigable
streams containing phosphate deposits
is the ordinary one in the instance of
grants of public rights, namely, that
the grant is to be construed strictly in
favor of the State and against the
grantee. I concur in that view, and
applying the rule here, it forbids the
conclusion that the lcgislature in
tended an indefinite grant by the terms
used. The act of 1876 must necessarily
be read in connection with that of 1870,
and this being done, it seems clear that
the duration of th' exclusive right, as
claimed, was not thereby enlarged.
This conclusion is strengthened by an
examination of the many acts in rela
tions to phosphate mining referred to
on the hearing of this motion, which
show the policy of the State to have
been to limit the duration of the right
to mine-a policy which it cannot be
properly held the State intended to
depart from by the Act of 1876. It
follows that the claim of the defendant
to the exclusive right to mine within
the mentioned territory, indefinitely,
at one dollar per ton, cannot be sus
3. This being so, and in view of the
provisions of the Act of 1890, an injunc
tion ought to go against the defendant,
restraining it, as prayed, until it shall
take out a license under the latter Act
and otherwise comply therewith, and
such an order may be substituted for
the order made by the State court,
which should be vacated, so far as is
inconsistent with the order so entered.
4. Pending the filing of the foregoing
memorandum and the entry of the
order therein agreed to, the parties
having agreed to submit the case on
4he-ering- aIready had, a on the
merits, and f1reit. stipulation-iA that
behalf having been duly considered, a
final judgment and decree may be en
tered in accordance with the result
MELVILLE WV. FULLER,
August 3, 1891. Chief Justice.
JUDGE SIMONTON'S CONCURRENCE,
Simon::on, J., concurring :
The acts of 1870 and ]876 must be
construed in par-i maturia. Under the
first act the State gave the grantees, for
twenty-one years, the right to mine in
its navigable streams. This grant was
upon the condition that the grantees
should pay annually $1 a ton on each
ton dug and mined, and that they
should make a return of their opera
tions annually, or oftener if required.
This was not an exclusive right.
(Bradley vs. The Phosphate Co., 1
Hughes.) It was upon condition, that
is to say, it existed so long and no
longer than the conditions were ful
filled. The act of 1876 proposed a
modification of this contract in four~
1. The time for making the returns
was definitcly fixed as the end of each
month. This was an advantage to
both the parties.
2. The royalty was made payable on
each ton dug, mined and shipped, not
on the rock mined. This was in favor
of the grantees.
3. The royalty was made payable
quarterly, not annually-this provision
to go into efiect immediately and the
royalty for the two quarters of the cur
rent year to be paid at once. This was
in favor of the State.
4. The right to mine thereto, if not
exclusive, was made exclusive upon the
acceptance of the State's proposals.
The original contract was unchanged
in every other respect. The royalty re
mained the same-$1 per ton. The
grant was wholly on condition-that
is "so long as and no longer than" the
conditions were fulfilled. The dura
tion of this grant, during which these
conditions were of force, was .un
changed, twenty-one years from 1870.
This is a reasonable construction of a
doubtul act, by which the doubt is re
solved in favor of the sovereign gran
tor. It is a familiar rule of construc
tion that when a statute operates as a
grant of public property to an individ
ual, or the relinquishment of a public
interest, and tnere is no doubt as to the
meaning of its terms, or as to its gen
eral purposes, that construction will be
adopted which shall support the claim
of the government rather than that of
the individual. "Nothing can be en
forced against the State." (Field, J.,
vs. Slidel, grand juror, III U. B., 137.)

SLNSSTION IN COLUMBIA.
lewspaper Articles Cause Bad Blood Be
tween Mr. N. C. Conzales of The State
aid Mr. M. F. Tighe of The News and
Courier, Leading to a Personal
Encounter and Blows.
[From the Columbia Register, 4th.]
The quiet monotony of summer life in
>ur city was suddenly, but not unex
pectedly, broken pesterday afternoon
by a yersonal encounter between Mr.
M. F. Tighe, the Columbia corre?pon
dent of the News and Courier, and Mr.
N. G. Gonzales, managing editor of the
State. The affair occurred about half
past 6 o'clock in front of the News and
Courie r Bureau office, and naturally
enough in a few minutes after itsoccur
rence it was known from one end of
the town to the other and was the
theme of all tongues.
The casus belli, as the lawyers say,
was primarily certain newspaper arti
eles which have latterly appeared in
the columns of the News and Courier
over the initials of Mr. Tighe, and cer
tain editorial utterances in the State.
Mr. Tighe. intimated that a Columbia
daily, presumably the State, had Re
publican tendencies and always re
ceived the first news of any important
Republican movements. To this the
State responded yesterday morning in
an editorial in which, among other
things, the following references were
made to Mr. Tighe:
"Mr. Tighe has had the opportunity to know -
and knows.that thestate is owned exclusively
by Democrats, that its editorial policy is abso
lutely controlled by the man whose nsme ap
pears at the head of its editorial columns,and
whom no one dare accuse to his face'bf being
other than a Domocrat of the str'itest sect;
that it advocates the Democracy of Jefferson
without swerving or cessation, and that it has
no connection whatever with any other paper.
Democratic or Republican, directly or indi
rcn making what every one will recognize as
insinuations to the cutrary, Mr. Matthew F.
Tighe, the correspondent or the Charleston
News and Courier in this city, has been guilty
of a sneaking slander,unredeemed by the sen,
blance of truth.
"If Mr. Matthew F. Tighe, in what he has
sent to the News and (ourier, did not intend
to insinuate that the State was in some nmanner
tamed by Republican connections, and for
that reason introduced it into a business dif
ferent between the owners of the Record, then
he is an idiot.
"It on the other hand-and his reference to
the State as an 'alleged' Democratic paper
bears out the supposition-lie did intend to
impugn the Democracy of this newtpaper, he
is a knave."
The editorial in question also charged
that Mr. Tighe had sought a position
on the staff of the State and asserted
that he was not in sympathy with the
Tillman party, and that if he had voted
in the general election he would have
voted for Judge Haskell. It also charged
that Mr. Tighe desired to take stock in
the State, and as late as the mouth of
May was still seeking a position on its
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Tighe sent
Mr. Gonzales a note in which he told
him that he could not escape a fight
with him as he had escaped one with
Mr. Talbert and Mr. Gandy, and that,
although he did not go armed, he would
meet Mr. Gonzales wherever and when
ever he pleased, and with any weapon
he pleased, and that he did not carry
"the stilletto of t'he Spaniard"; at least
such is said to be the contents of the
letter, but as neither the sender nor the
receiver of it have given it out for pub
lication the above may not be literally
Upon receipt of the letter Mr. Gon
zales procured a cowhide, and in com
pany with W. H. Gibbes, Jr., sought
Mr. Tighe, who was at the time sitting
in front of the News and Courier office.
Sheriff Rowan, who bad a few minutes
previous come up, seeing Mr. Gonzales
approaching him with the cowhide
sticking out of his pocket, said hurried
ly to him, "None of that N. G.," and
as he spoke Mr. Gonzales struck at Mr.
Tighe and they immediately clinched.
They were momentarily separated by
the Sheriff, but got together again, and
according to the accounts of several by
standers, including the Sheriff', Mr.
Tighe struck Mr. Gonzales several
blows in the face and Mr. Gonzales also
struck Mr. Tighe several times, but
they were again separated, but neither
of them appeared to be the much worse
for the encounter. Both were sum
moned to appear before the mayor this
morning for disorderly conduct. and
fighting on the streets, but thus far no
further steps have been taken to pre
vent any repetition of the encounter.
Sheriff Rowan stated last night to a
Register reporter that the rumor that
he had posted -himself at the The News
and Courier office for some time before
the difficulty in anticipation of it was
positively without foundation in fact.
He says that he left his office to go
home by a back street, and remen ber
ing some business matter changed his
mind and weut around on Main
street. He had been at the office but a
few minutes when the encounter took
place as above mentioned.
KILLED IN A WRECK.
Death of the E: -' and Fireman--The
Ashev ille Expr,. .tuns Into a FreIght
Train with Fatal Resulte-DeathI of
the Engineer and Flreman.
[Special to Greenville News.]
CHARLESTON, S. C., August 1--The
dead bodies of Harry Brissenden and
Wesley G. Brown, engineer and fireman
on the South Carolina railway, reached
here at 11 a. m. to-day, bringing the
first news to the general public of a
terrible crash that occ~urred at 11.40
o'clock last night at Ridgeville. A
collision occurred between the down
Asheville express and an outgoing
freight train, the first being in charge
of Conductor Gilbert. IThe story as told
by Fireman Johnson, who is badly
bruised and the only survivor of the
engine crew, is as follows:
The express reached Ridgeville at
11.4) on schedule time, having the
right of track. The freight train was
ust pulling on the side track. Eight
cars and the locomotive were on the
side track and twenty cars were on the
main track. The engineer and fireman
of the express saw a red light just a
noment before the locomotive crashed
into the freigh t train, too late to reverse
the locomotive. The engineer put on
the air brakes and leaped from the
locomotive. Brown followed him."
Johnson says he couldin't get out
and braced himself against the coal
bunker. He was buried under the coal
when the crash camie but it saved his
ife. Brown had his neck broken by the
fall andi Brissenden was also fatally in
jured. He died before lhe wa taken
from the wreck.
Nothing has yet been heard from the
flagman and engineer of the freight
train. An inquest was held at Ridge
Mr. Brissenden was 42 years old and
was one of the best and most popular
engineers on the road. On October 7th,
187 he drove the same locomotive
which was wrecked, making the fastest
trip ever made over the South Caro
lina road, from Columbia to Charleston,
140 miles in 170 minutes. He was also
engineer of the train which was de.
railed at Langley by the earthquake on
AAugust 31st, 1886. Four years ago he
ran over a child near Rowesville, the
scene of his death, and the incident
