NEWBERRY, S. C,
The little town of Yorkville voted
$16,000 of town bonds the other day to
establish a system of water works for
the town. It was a wise step, but it
has only been a short time since the
town had a bitter experience in the
shape of a big fire. The town has a
population of only about 1,600 people.
There were only seven votes against
Wonder what the people of New
berry would say to a proposition to
establish water works here? They are
needed, but we opine that if there were
an immediate prospect of voting any
more tax some people would get the
nightmare. Some people, no doubt,
expect to carry some of their little dol
lar with them to the other world.
This town needs a stirring up and a
good shaking, so as to get the scales
from the eyes. '
We have a good fire department
now, but it would be helpless at a fire
True, if we can always -manage to
have the fires near one of the holes
we have in the ground, and it happens
to .haye plenty of water in it, the de
partment may be able to do good ser
vice; but it is impossible to regulate
these things. We can't tell where the
fire is going to be, nor when it will

a good system of water works for the
The Herald and News would be glad
to have expressions of opinion on this
subject. Let us hear from the kickers
as well as frow those who want to be
on the side of progress.
The Herald and News was the first
to agitate the question of Graded
Schools for Newberry several years
before they were established. At first
it fell flat, and some people hooted at
the idea. 'After awhile they came.
The Herald and News was forgotten
and given no credit for its efforts, but
we were satisfi-A to see that the work
was accompi.ued, even though we
were counted out. The men who bear
the heat and'brunt of the battle are
seldom counted for much after the
smoke of the battle has cleared away
and everybody is in the flush of vic
tory. But The Herald and News
wants to see the town keep pace with
the march of progress; but we cannot
be more than we make ourselves.
If old fogies and grumblers and kick
ers and back ideas are to rule the baili
wick, we had better find it out-and
the sooner the better. If we are to
keep pace with the rest of mankind
and move forward, we had better start
-and the sooner the better.
A town the size of Newberry, and
with the commercial advantages and
~---hecapital of one of the best counties
in the State, should long ago have had
some of the modern conveniences and
improvements. We cannot now recall
another town in the State, of the size
and importance of Newberry, that is
without water works and a system of

and labored hard, for Newberry; and
in many respects it has been a labor of
love, and, we might almost say, of love's

be glad to hear from the kickers. Let's

There is talk of the reformers putting
up Gov. Tillman next year as the can
didate for Governor for a third term
andin this respect, too, breaking the
Well, there is no serious objectien to
that. In fact it seems to us that 4he
present administration will have to
have several terms yet to carry
out the reform ideas"of the reform
movement. The two teris, which
will close next year will have
been spent mostly in litigation with no
results of any benefit to the people.
And it should be understood if Gov.
Tillman is re-elected for a third term
that he must not take advantage of his
position to have himself elected United
States Senator, but he must remain
at his post in the executive chair to
carry out and put into active operation
for the benefit of the people the reform
ideas, whatever they are, or may be.
It may be that his services will be
needed for a fourth,' or even a fifth
term. When we get a good thing we
ought to hold fast to it. This is a seri
ous and an important matter and
should not be trified with. There' are
no others among the reformers who
want office, and it would be a difficult
matter to get a man who could carry
forward to a successful termination
these zetform ideas.
The Utopia people are going to vote
an additional tax for school purposes.

TOWN ROPERTY A D .TATE TAXA
The opinion of Mr. Buchanan, in
regard to the taxation of town property
for State purposes, does not affect New
berry, for the town has been paying on
its property for a great many years, and
in fact, we presume ever since it
owned any property. The opinion
seems to us to be correct and
has been the law for a long time.
Newberry pays on about $10,000 worth
of property which includes the person
alty and the opera house building.
Under the statutes the market house
and fire department is exempt from
taxation. If the-opera house was used
exclusively for public purposes and
without charge it would not be subject
This property is liable to taxation
under the laws of the State and should
be on the tax books ao long as the laws
stand as they are.
Lieut.-Governor Gary has ordered
an election for Senator from this county
on Tuesday, July 18. This is the date
for the election which will be merely a
matter of form. The primary is the
thing around which the interest will

The Supreme Court of the United
States has rendered a decision on the
act of Congress providing for the ex

held that the act is constitutional. So
the Chinese must stay away from us.
Lynchings are becoming quite fre
quent. It is strange that these people
will go on committing this same crime
when they must know that it means
sure and speedy death. The lynching
of Peterson in Barnwell was followed
by lynchings in Williamsburg, Lau
rens and Kershaw.
The negroes have been holding meet
ings and passing resolutions looking to
the suppression of lynch law.
Lynch law is never justifiable, but
for certain crimes it is as sure to follow
as the perpetrator is captured, and he
usually is. It seems to be the unwrit
ten law and is so everywhere. Let
*hite and black all remember this, for
this unwritten law is no respector of
The Greenville News has a bit of
good advice to the colored people on
this subject, and we append it here:
Teach your people that the rope
awaits any man guilty of one crime
outrage or ettempted outrage. That is
unwritten law, better observed than
Your condition is in your hands and
it must depend on yourselves to better
it. Any well behaved, industrious
colored man can make his way, even
to independent wealth.
This advice followed and there will
be a stop to lynch law. The speedy
hanging of any man is just as sure to
follow the commission of the crime for
which these negroes have been lynched
as night follows day, and the colored
people should remember that it is no
respector of persons. The white man,
or the red man, or the black man who
commits the crime for which these
negroes were hung will meet the same
fate, and his color has nothing to do
The county campaign will not open
until after the 3d of June, and will
then be short and sweet. Until that
time the reformers will not know for
whom they will be permitted to vote.
Everything in this day of political lib
erty and freedom has to be decided by
the caueus which is generally run and
managed by the leaders. It is virtually
saying that the people are incompetent
to cast their votes as they should and
that matter has to be decided by the
caucus. But then it is all right and
proper for you know it is reform.
It is just as well, however, and possi
bly better to have a short campaign.
The editor of the Herald and News is
still on the sick list and while up most
of the time is not able to attend to his
duties as he should. He hopes to be
himself again soon.
The Supreme Court has not yet de
eded the whiskey cases that were
brought before it from Chester. The
report to that effeet in the News
and Courier on Monday was a mistake.
The official plums continue to drop
from Washington, but none seem to
fall in the apron of South Carolina.
W,e do not seem to hold the strings
just exactly right.
The State Supreme Court has deci
dd again that our new issue of State
bonds are good and valid. That ought
to settle the question, and we hope' will.
It is just such a decision as was ex
The town of Aiken is establishinig a

State. The Herald and News would
not like to say where we will be it we
do not soon begin to move.
It is revenue plain and simple that
the friends of the dispensary law are
looking after. The moral question
does not enter. Prohibitionists who
favor this law should never more talk
about the evils of the whiskey traffic
and the beauties of prohibition.
The business men of Columbia have
realized the importance of getting to

GOVERNOR TILLMXAN AND SOLT (;TOR to
In the correspondence between Gov. r
Tillman and Solicitor Jervey, in regard
to the prosecution of the Denmark
lynchers, nothing has been done.
It looks like an effort to play at a
very serious matter. Governor Till- a
man hardly expected Solicitor Jervey t
to bring the prosecution, but saw, as he 0
thought, an opportunity to get even I
with him for his speech at the Colum- t
bia mass meeting. t
He cited, as a precedent for his ac
tion, the order of Gov. Jeter in order- f
ing Solicitor Cothran to go to Edgefield
to assist Solicitor Bonham in a case in r
which the defendants were relatives of C
That precedent, it seems to us, is in r
favor of Mr. Jervey's view of the law. I
Mr. Jervey says he ir willing to go to
Barnwell and assist the solicitor of the
circuit, or take ebarge*of the prosecu- ]
tion, provided the resident solicitor I
will institute proceedings, but he does
not think it would be lawful for him to
go over there and start the cases from
the beginning. r
In the Edgefield case, cited by the a
Governor, Solicitor Bonham drew the a
indictments and- summoned the wit
nesses and then turned the ,case over t
to Solicitor Cothran.
If the Governor is serious a6out this
matter let him have Solicitor Bellinger
draw the indictments and have the case
star'ed, and if it turns out that some of
his relatives are defendants he can turn
the case over to Mr. Jervey, as was done S
in the Edgefield cases. t
This is too serious a matter to trifle S
with even though it furnish the Gov
ernor an opportunity to show his abil- .
ity at sarcasm. t
Prosecutions would amount to noth- 3
ing and would be a useless expense and i
trouble, but if the Governor wants the s
matter investigated, the way is clear.

NOT EXEMPT. p
Cities and Towns Have to Pay Taxes on a
Certain Classes of Their Prope,ty. e
The State, 4th. I t
The Assistant Attorney-General has
just rendered a decision which is des
tined to overthrow all the systems of
taxation wherein the personal property
of cities and incorporated towns and r
villages is concerned. Heretofore it has
been the custom practiced throughout I
the State to consider all such property 1
exempt from taxation, and has never t
been placed upon the State tax books.
Under the decision referred to, however, e
all such property will hereafter be
charged upan the tax books just as in
the case of personal property of any t
Such a move will mean a great deal t
to such cities as Charleston, Greenville V
and Col,imbia, and, in fact, all of the .
towns of the State. The cities quoted ~
each have a very large amount of per
sonal property, especially Columbia and
Charleston, and the collection of taxes e
thereon falling, of it does, unexpected- t
ly, will seriously affect their finances. g
From what- can be ascertained the ~
Comptroller-General intends to have
all this class of property in the State
put upon the books.
The following letter has caused the t
decision to be rendered:
