That In thefQueptiot Now to be Settled-The
Indlcations Are That Neither oe or the
Applicautp Has a Mjority of the
Freeholders to IMs Fetition.
Monday, according to the notice pub
lished by the county board (,f control
for Newberry. was the last day for filing
the petitions for county dispenser.
There are only two applicants in the
field-Mr. R. C. May bin and Mr. T. B.
Perry. The way it looks to us, from a
careful examination of the petitions, is
that neither one has a majority of ihe
freehold voters of the town as required
by law. Now what will be done? That
we do not know, but certainly under
law and the opinions of the Attorney
General the county board can make no
appointment with the present petitions
without going contrary to the law.
But it may interest the people of
Newberry to know who are freehold
voters of the town and also to know
who have asked for the appointment
of a dispenser. In order to give that
information we give below a list of the
freehold voters and also lists of those
who signed the two petitions.
The list given Mr. Sease, the clerk of
the board of control, by Mr. Fair, con
tains but 139 names, but from an exam
ination of the books of the Auditor and
Clerk of Court we find that there are at
least 14 freehold voters in the town.
The list will be found below and we
think it is correct as far as it goev. There
may be, and no doubt are, more freehold
voters. Those marked donbtful, just
below the regular list, have real estate
charged to them on the Auditor's books
and pay taxes on the same for the New
berry Graded Schools, but the property
may really belong to their wives. or
mothers as is often the case. A major
ity of the 154, however, would take 78
names on the petition.
An examination of Mr. Maybin's
petition will show that he has only GS
names of the freehold voters. Be was
requested in writing some ten days ago
to erase the names of E. H. Aull and
W. P. Houseal and also of Dr. J. M.
Kibler. That will reduce his petition
to 65 names. That wants 6ve of a ma
jority, even taking Mr. Fair's list,
which is not correct as the records
show. If need be we could name those
who have signed each petition but who
are not freehold voters. The reader
can do that for himself. He. has both
lists before him.
As to Mr. Perry's petition, he has 80
names, but of this number only 54 are
He is short of the proper number
considerably. Now what will the board
do? A man must not only own real
estate but he must be a voter to come
within the intention of the act. Under
the definition of a freehold voter as
laid down by the Attorney-General,
and the law, the board can make no
appointment without going in the face
of the law.
On both petitions Is the name of Jas.
L. Cannon, now dead, and on Mr,
2Maybin's petition is the name of L. W.
C. Blalock, now a citizen of Richmond.
It is a pity that we can get none or
the profits to be made out of the $23,000
worth of whiskey already bought by
the State, but it seems that we are to
give prohibition, pure and simple, a
trial. Yet it is strange that some pro
hibitionists will sign petitions for a dis
An examination of the lists will also
show that a large number of colored
people are in favor of the dispensary,
judged by their signature. Another
feature is the large number who have
signed both petitions. If both petitions
were put together and the duplicate
names left off there might be a major
ity of the freehold voters of the town
on both petitions, but that is doubtful.
That cannot be done, however, eder
the interpretation of the law as made
by the Attorney-General.
So it would seem that the first town
In the State to get its name in the
papers as certain to have a dispensary
is, after all, to have none.
But here are the fists spoken of: First
the list of freehold voters, and next the
petitions of R. C. 31aybin and T. B.

Annual Inaspection and Parade-Banquel
and Foot Races.
The annual inspection of the New
berry Fire Department will be held
next TueFday afternoon at 4.30.
There will first be a reel contest be
tween the two teams, which will be
interesting and exciting. There will
then be three foot races. In the first
race the winner will receive S5.00; in
the second race the winner $3.00; in
the third race the winner $2.00.
At night, after the inspection is ovez
and the speeches have been made from
the Court House steps by the mayor,
the chief of the department and the
president, there will be a banquet
served at the Newberry Hotel, and
there will be more speech-making.
The company and a number of invited
guests will participate.
Altogether it will be a very pleasant
and enjoyable occasion.
If we could just celebrate at the
same time the establishment of a sys

it would indeed be a great event.

Tobacco Habit Cured.
Attention is directed to the attractive
announcement of the Ohio Chemical
Company. But first read the follow
ing and you will be convinced, if you
are a slave of the tobacco habit, that
you need to be cured. Dr. E. Cheney,
a celebrated medical authority, says:
Fxperiments made on seven healthy
person not addicted to the smoking,
conducted for some days without
smoking, and then the same number
of days with the use of twenty-five
cigaretts each day, gave the following
results, and the same with chewing:
1. Tobacco increases the gastric juice,
but diminishes its acidity and so its
digestive quality, Diminished acidity
begets indigestion and flatulency, and
is equally harmful with abnormal ex
cess of acidity.
2. The free hydrochloric acid is also
diminished and its useful work de
3. Tobacco injures the activity of the
rennet properties of the stomach J,iice,
and so burts '.ie work of these species
of useful ferment.
Thus both chewing and smoking
alike interfere with the normal pro.
cesses of the stomach. Hence indiges
tion and dyspepsia are common among
tobacco users, and the frequent resort
to tobacco for dyspepsia is abnormal,
being contrary to science and must be
The logic of science denounces tobacco
in the treatment of deranged stomachs,
except, possibly, where there is too
great acidity, In all cases where there
is a wish to keep the healthy digestive
organs in their normal condition and
functions, both smoking and chewing

Cyclone in Anderson.
Fromn a gentleman who has just re
turned from Anderson County, we learn
that the section of that county near
Starr Station on the Savannah Valley
IRailroad was visited on Sabbath night
by a very destr'uctive cyclone. On the
farm of Press Allen, a rich planter,
twenty-seven tenant houses were blown
down, one small negro killed, and
others seriously injured.
On the farm of Doc Jones, another
large planter, every house on his place,
tenant houses, barns, stables, &c., were
all blown down, the dwelling was not
blown down but was much damaged.
Corn and fodder was scattered all about
the country. At another farm many
of the houses were injured. A tree was
blown down with great violence against
the dwelling breaking the side of the
house and tearing it to pieces, and even
a bed in the second story, which some of
the family had just vacated, was torn
all to pieces. The track of the cyclone
seemed to be about one and half miles
wide. News of the injury to other sec
tions was being received when our in

POINTERS FOR NEWBERRIANS.
Dr. Holland Wants Help for the New Buil.d
ing on the Campus-Some of the
Benefits of Newberry College.
To the People of .\ewberry:
Sixteen years ago you generously
gave the bandsome sum of S16,000
toward the relocation of Newberiy
College in your midst. During these
years about one hundred young men
have been graduated from the college
most of whom are engaged in useful
occupation in this and other States.
At least .500 different students have
been enrolled during this time. The
average attendance has been nearly
100, the number of students from
abroad has averaged over 50. The
amount of money left by them in New
berry has not been less, perhaps con
siderably more, than $150 each ; mak
ing the annual expenditure in your
town of at least $7,500. Multiply this
amount by 16, and you will have the
snug sum of $120,000. In addition to
this, the interest on endowments paid
toward the support of the college has
averaged about $1200. This adds up
nearly $20,000, which put to the former
sum makes $140,000. These figures
show that the enterprising people of
Newberry made a good financial in
vestment in their successful bid for the
college in 1S77.
A new building is now a necessity to
meet the growing demands of the col
lege. Many of you have ieceived
through the mail a statement of this
need, accompanied with an appeal for
help toward the erection of this build
ing. Some have kindly responded to
this call and others have promised to
do so. The money will not be needed
before October or November.
The Standing Committee of the col
lege earnestly solicits all who are in
terested in the college to send in
pledges before June 10th, so that the
Trustees of the College, at their annual
meeting on June 13th, may be able to
authorize the erection of the building.
A collection for this purpose will be
asked on Sunday and Wednesday of
Commencement week, The amounts
contributed on these occasions will be
used solely for the purpose named.
But it is hoped that many pledges
will come before that time.
On behalf of tha Standing Commit
tee, I am yours sincerely,
G. W. HOLLAND.

Fine Fish Fry, Fun and Frolic.
Sheriff Riser and Mr. James Dunbar
returned last Saturday night from a
fishing expedition, and report one of
the finest times they have ever had.
It was at Squire Bill Long's pond in
the O'Neall section. They went to
4r. Long's Friday afternoon and spent
the night with him. Wanting fish for
breakfast they went to the pond that
night and in a short time caught a few
-ten pounds. But it was not until
next day that the real fun, the battle
of the Oerman carp, began. Our
sheriff says it was lively. After sein
ing around awhile they brought up a
rouser; it weighed twenty pounds; it
was a hustler from the deep. They
dragged the net ashore and Jim fought
like a good fellow for that fish. Sheriff
says you ought to have seen him floun
dering around on the bank and tus
sling with his fishship. He secured
him, but Sheriff says Jim swore he
only succeeded after stabbing the fish
to the heart. [Some folks say a fish
has no heart, but Dun bar says if that
fish didn't have a heart ie "come
mighty near knowing it." That "will
be all right,") Mr. Riser says the
fish was a little' over nine years old,
and that Mr. Long had three of the
same sort in the pond. They also
caught three large turtles.
The sheriff says they left Mr. Dun
bar to do the cooking (and he is one
of the best fish cooks in the country,
as he knows his business), while they
went off and witnessed a baptizing.
Sheriff Riser says he is so well
pleased with his trip that he is glad he
accepted the invitation of his friend
Long, whose hospitality is unbounded.

disrordereddigrstiosthan most people know.
