WATER! WATER WORK !
We present this week the opinions of
a number of the citizens of Newberry
on the question of water works for our
town. In doing so we have not en
deavored- to pick men of our way of
thinking. On the contrary they were
taken just as they came. We want to
know what the sentiment of the people
ion thlsquestion. We want the issue
airlyand squarely prgsented, for if the
' ystem is to be established there must
be unanimity of sentiment and effort in
order to make the thing a success.
We hope next week to give some
other opinions on the subject and to
keep the matter before the people until
they can see and realize'that the estab
lishment of water works is not only a
thingto be desired but is a necessity, and
that the expense will be money not only
well spent, but will be money economi
cally spent. These facts we sincerely
believe and can therefore honestly and
conscientiously urge them upon oar
We invite short articles from any one
who has an opinion on this subject for
publication. It does not matter whether
you favor the plan or not. We want
to have it fully discussed and all phases
of the subject presented to our people
so that we can act advisedly and with
our eyes open. We invite the fullest
and freest discussion. Let the light be
thrown on and we feel sure that the
more it is duscussed the more the peo
pie , ill be convinced that it is a proper
As there seems to be doubt in the
minds of some of our noble leaders of
reform on the advisability of holding
a convention, The Herald and News
has in mind a suggestion wbich, possi
bly, can solve the whole trouble and
get us out of the hole into which we
have apparently been plunged by the
many complications which have arisen
in the ranks of reform, owing to the
fact that there are so many true and
original reformers who are competent
and anxious and desirous of serving
the people in the capacity of office.
It is only a suggestion, now, and can
be taken if desired; but we only offer
it in the interest of harmony and
peace in the ranks.
Thore are certain men who have
worked nobly and manfully in the
reform cause-in fact who have borne
the brunt of the battle and were al
ways found in the thickest of the fray.
They have not asked for omce and are
not asking now, but reform wants to
seek the men and not have the nen all
the time seeking it. It will be observed
too that our suggestion shows no par
* tiality, bnt takes the whole ti,cket from
one profession. All the men are well
known, and a mere mention of tiuair
names is a sufficient encomium.
We believe that this ticket in its
entirety will be acceptable to Senator
Irby, Congressman Shell, Governor
Tillman and Editor Bowden. If it is
not we can't help that. The men
named have b:en true to all the re
But what is the use to multiply
words? We are only making a sug
gestion, and here it is:
For Governor-Coi. T. L arry Gantt,
Editor of the Piedmont Headlight.
Russell, Editor of the Peoples' Advo
For Secretary of State-Col. Geo. R.
Koester, Editor of the Register.
For Treasurer-Captain Thomas J.
Adams, Editor of the Edgefield Ad
For Attorney General-G3en. Robt.R.
Bemphill, Editor of the Abbeville
For Comptroller General-Capt. Jas.
L. Sims, Editor of the Orangeburg
Times and Democrat.
For Superintendent of Education
-Cot. Jito. C. Bai!'y, Editor of the
For Adjutar? an-I In'pector General
-Gen. Franklin V. Ca pers, Editor of
the Prosperity Press and Iteporter.
Now how does this strike you as a
peace and unity suggestion'?
Since we made this suggession we
understand that Maj. Russell has not
endorsed the slapping of Mrs. Notle by
Constable Elliott. That may' disqualify
him. All candidate~s who want to get
*there must learn that tbe constables
can do no wrong, and any word of con
demnation or any of their acts will be
considered treason to thbe noble cause o'
Reform. We will not take his jnme
down just yet, however.
We were told by an old gentleman in
Columbia the other day that Governor
Tillman sent for him to come and see
him and that he went with fear and
trepidation to his majesty, not knowing
what he could be desired for, and when
he got there the Governor toid him that
he wanted him to make arrests of vio
lators of the dispensary law and he
would be paid $2.5 for every white man
he brought up and convicted, and $10
for every negro. The old gentleman
declined with thanks. The musie goes
on and the peop'le pay thbe fiddler. A
white man's scalp is valued at more
than a negro's.
The Herald and News extends its
sympathy to the Greenville News in
its misfortune, but we are glad to know
that the loss from the fire was possibly
covered by insurance. We are also glad
to know that the News will not lose an
issue but will come out regularly. The
News is too valuable a champion of
Democracy to miss an issue in these
Editor W. W. Ball, formerly of the
Laurens Advertiser, has taken charge
of the Columbia Journal. H e is a bright
and a brainy young man and we shall
expectto see the Jonrnal boom und:-r
his management. We wish him and
the Journal abundant suec e -s.
Senator Butler says that he does not
intend to have any mud-slinging in the
coming campaign. We hope tbat it
may be conducted on a high plane, and
that the issues may be discussed in
such manner as to instruct and enlight
en the people.
The Herald and News sincerely pre
sents its compliments and congratu
lations to t3onsulJ. Malcolm Johnstone
this morning. We are very glad in
debd that the.appointment was made.
No don btit will be a surprise to many
people, not. that they consider it any
thing but a good appointment, but no
one knew he was an applicant for the
place or any place. But all the same
we are glad that the President has
made such a good and wise selection.
This place will require a wise and well
balanced head and these we are sure
that Mr. Johnstone possesses. There
has been some war or rumors of war
down in that country. We hope Con
sul Johnstone will be able to restore
peace and run things smoothly and we
are certain that if any one can he can.
But if he cannot and those people really
want to fight all he has to do is to no
tify Captain S. J. McCaughin and the
Newberry Rifles and the rebellious
spir' will sosn disappear.
Just what the salary of the office is
we do not know, but we presume, of
course, that it is good. We have not
seen Mr. Johnstone since his appoint
ment and do not know what his inten
tions in the matter are, but we pre
sume that he will make arrangements
to leave at an early day for his new
Our best wishes will go with him to
his new field and we hope his career
will be marked with great success. We
have no doubt on that subject, how
The raid in Newberry was a water
haul. Just as we expected it would be.
We told the Governor some tine ago
there was no use for spies, or possibly
we should say, constables, in our town.
We are a peaceable and quiet commu
nity, and the policemen are amply able
to take care of things in these parts.
Under the dispensary law if you have
any whiskey in your house that was not
bought from the dispensary you had
better get a dispensary tag and put on
it. Otherwise it is liable to seizure and
confiscation. It matters not if you
have it there simply for medical use
and are not engaged in any way in the
sale of the stuff. This is hardly a free
country any more. Well, we hope it
will all come out right after awhile.
The Herald and News cannot help it
if people want to subscribe for this
newspaper. Our effort for seven years
has been to work for our own paper
with no purpose or intention to tear
down or injure others. That policy we
pursued from the beginning of our con
nection with a newspaper and we have
kept it up to this time and we intend
to continue it to the end. It has never
been and never will be our purpose to
build up by pulling others down. We
have not time nor inclination to notice
any insinuations to the contrary. But
whenever a man comes in, as many are
doing, and wants to subscribe we will
treat him politely and courteously and
enter his name upon our books with
thanks. And don't you forget that.
Our books and our purse (if we had
one) are always open for new sub crib
What do you think of the ticket sug
gested by The Herald and News this
week? We do not propose to write any
laudatory articles on the subject. The
names suggested do not need it and
possibly would not bear too much of it.
They only need to be presented to the
people. The only reason they were not
taken long ago is simply because the
people had never thought of it.
Governor Tillman will carry his pet
-trademark case to the U. S. Supreme
Court. Litigation, thy name is legion.
Our Strangely Anomalous Situation.
To the Editor~ of The Herald and
News: Like you, I do not at all "catch
on" to what your correspondent "H."
is driving at; and (but this strictly in
confidence) I am rather inclined to
think be "is talking through his hat."
But while not able "to penetrate the
hidden depthbs of meaning that may lie
buried under 'H's' rhetoric," I may
be allowed to call attention to a few of
the anomalies of the present situation
in our State.
Our Legislature at its recent session,
among other extraordinary acts, re
duced thbe sr.ary of thbe State Superin
tenident of Education from $1,800 to, I
believe, $1,500. At the same time it
raised the salary of Mr. Tra.xler, the
apostate Baptist who abandoned hir
church and religion, to retain his posi
tioni as Tillman's c bief bar-keeper, from
$1 800 to $3.000. It also reduced the
salaries of the County Commissioners
of Education f om $600, certainly low
enough, to $4~>0. while our county
bar-tenders, at least the one in our
county, os I am inforrned, has a salarv
of $l,000, and even his assistant of $600
If this is not exalting the whiskey
traffic and lowering the cause of edu
cation I hardly know what would be.
Tbe service of dispensing whiskey
seems to be regarded by "the powers
that be" as more than twice as valua
ble as educating our children. Our
teachers are miserably paid for only
three or four months' services during
the year, anid often have to wait an in
definite time for their money, or dis
pose ot their certificates at a ruinous
discount, while those engaged in the
whiskey traffic are living in clover and
aring sumptuously every day. We
would seem to he living in a topsy
turvy world. And yet, if I at all
"catch on" fo "H's" meaning. he ap
proves of this situation, and of those
who have been instrumental in bring
ing it about. And yet I believe he is a
teacher. A READER.

Constable Massey Gets Off on a $1,000
The proceedings in the application
for bail by Constable Massev, who
killed Ballew in Spartanburg County,
took place on Saturday at 3 o'clock
before Associate Justice Pope. There
were present Massey in charge of Chief
Faut with his counsel, Sampson Pope,
Thos. Sease, Solicitor Schumpert, Mr.
August Kohn, correspondent of the
News and Courier, and the local re
'Ibis reporter was not present, but
gives herewith the
REPORT OF MR. KOHN.
After the return had been read Mr.
Sease plunged into the sea of badly
prepared testimony. Then the argu
Dr. Sampson Pope was unusually
dispassionate and brief. He said:
"We have submitted the evidence
taken before the coroner's inquest and
the verdict, and we submit that the
evidence is so plain that bail should be
gra ted without any trouble. The
evidence shows that Mr. Massey in the
discharge of his duty was obliged to
shoot in self-defence one Ballew, and
that Ballew was in the act of firing, as
Massey believed. The evidence shows
that there was plain resistance to the
law and a complete justification of .he
officers in what they did. I do not
think that we are called upon to say
anything further as the case is so very
SOLICITOR SCRUMPERT'S SPL.E NDID
Then Solicitor Schumpert opened the
constables' eyes. He said:
"In the first place, I taketbe position
that defendant is not entitled to bail
under any consideration. There is noth
ing in the evidence to show that Massey
was an officer of the law and went
there in the discharge of his duty.
There is nothing to show that he bad
a warrant for the arrest of the man
Ballew; he himself testifies that the
deputy sheriff bad a warrant for the
three Moores and Will Center, and
probably one other. Ballew's name
was not mentioned. It is a singular
coincidence running all through this
testimony that while all these men
were acting in concert there is no men
tion anywhere of any of them having a
warrant for the arrest of Ballew. As
suming that Massey had a warrant for
the arrest of Crawford Ballew, we are
at a loss to know with what he was
"The warrant is not here, and we
can only presume that he was wanted
for a violation of a law known as the
dispensary law. That is not felony.
Not a clause in it makes its violation a
felony, and there could have been no
excuse for the taking of life under any
warrant issued far the violation of its
"We have the extraordinary circum
stance in this case of a deputy sheriff
and a so-called posse endeavoring to
make that a felony and an excuse for
taking human life, which the very law
under which they were acting makes
only a misdemeanor. Massey says that
someone was sent to buy whiskey from
Moore. According to Moore's evidence
some one did come to his house at the
dead hour of midnight and woke him
up to go and get them some liquor. He
goes and gets the liquor. There perhaps
is no doubt that Massey violated the
dispensary law, but this is not a ques
tion of violation of the dispensary law.
"It is not involved in it. The simple
question is whether Massey had the
rigbt toshoot Ballew. Toshow Moore's
good faith and to show that he was en
tirely innocent of the object of their
visit, after supplying their wants he
oters to take them over to the rail
road. The night being dark he pilots
them to the railroad, and after bidding
them adieu and when he turned to go
they cried: "Halt!" and almost upon
the heels of the word "halt" they fired.
Moore'sevidence bears every impression
of. truth upon it.
"After the cry of 'Oh!' sounded upon
the midnight air the voices of women
are heard crying. Crawford Ballew
runs from his house in his night clothes
and finds his brother-in-law shot down.
He removes him to a place of safety,
and at the request of Moore goes to tell
his wife and sister that he is not badly
urt. Sarah Ballew then appears and
meets her husband, Crawford Ballew,
who informs her that Moore is not
badly hurt. She goes back into the
house and tells Mrs. Moore not to be
uneasy, that her husband is not seri
ously in jured. .
"The two women then hear another
scream that 'I am killed.' Mrs. Ballew
goes out and immediately returns and
says, 'My husband has been killed.'
Now, may it please your Honor, I take
this position that, even assuming that
if F. G. Massey, defendant, was armed
with process of law, to wit, a warrant
for the arrest of Crawford Ballew, and
be (Crawford Ballew) came out of his
ouse in the darkness of night after
bearing the cry of distress from his
brotherin-law (Moore) armed with a
pistol or any other weapon, and had
presented it to Massey, evena then und.er
the circumstances of this case and in
the light of the decision of theSupreme
Court in the case oft he State vs. Bodie,
be would not have been warranted in
shooting him down like a dog, for the
very a pparent .mason, your Honor, that
t would have taken away from the
ase a considerat ion of every element
f the law of selt.-defence.
"Theni wherein is Massey excused or
ustified, takin~g all oft le evidence inte
yonsideration. in taiking the life of the
eeessed Ballew. Your Honror has no
oubt observed- that nowhere in all of
this evidence is Massey mentioned as
an officer of the law.
"Deput.) Sheriff Dean himself men
tions several who were acting with
hiim as posse, but niowhere does he
ention the name of Defendant Mas
oy as one of that posse. Then, your
onor, upon what can we assume that
assey was an officer of the law and
d uly authorized to exeeute her so-emn
rocess? It is not in evidence and we
sre forced to the cone'usion that be
was one of four or five private indi
.iduals mentioned in the evidence of
Lhe deputy sheriff who accompanied
Lhe posse upon the illegal and mid
"No,. may it please your honor,
[say here with a due sense of the high
position which I occupy that the shoot
*ng of Crawford Ballew under the facts
od circumstances surrounding this
ase as evidenced by the extraordinary
:estimny taken at the coroner's in
uisition is pure and simple murder.
Regarding it as such I most solemrfly
r.test against the granting of bail."
Mr. Sease thereupon made a very
;ood argument, quoted from the Con
ititution on bail, saying that the evi
ence and finding entitled Massey to
ight bail. He was not convicted of
my crime; he went to arrest a violator
4 the law. If Massey had not fired
iome of his party would have been
eni killed. Nobody would have stood
uietly by and see two pistols drawn
n him. He summed up by saying
irst. the laws were not being violated
>v Massey; second, that Massey was
a posse armed with law and a war
-an t, that Ballew was resisting arrest
.d using extraordinary force, whichb
was justly met by such.
Thenhe went off on a peroration about
e press, when Mr. Schampert stopped
he game. Justice Pope after the argu
'zent had been tinished, squared hinm
elf and made a. brief speech.
JUDGE POPE TALKS.
In addition to rendering his opinion
as to the bail he said that he had given
he matter no little consideration and
zad carefully refrained from reading
mnything in the newspapers about the
ase. He said that it was greatly to be
egretted that the proceedings before
be coroner were not more complete, as
this case matters of detail wr,
~xpitted. As he understood the case,
he reviewed it that the sheriff had a
warrant for the arrest of several Moores
and Centre, and in one of the cases the
name of the unfortunate man is given.
That warrant was given to the deputy
We do not really know the offence
charged; the circumstances seem to
make that he was wanted for a viola
tion of the dispensary law as we know
it. He goes to arrest these men and.
proceeds with tbcde constables.
"Officers of the law would be want
ing in my regard for law and order if I,
do not announce that as long as the
law is upon the statute books that these A
men appointed by the Governor, as
provided, were officers of the law and A
were bound to the respect and author
ity, that their office and commission
entitled them to hold, and that the T
commission is entitled to the respect of
our citizens they must also respect the
laws. Then he went on to review the
circumstances of the shooting and said
there is great respect due the officers of
the law and they must respect the laws.
Ther he made a good hit at the grow
ing habit of carrying the ready pistol
and concludud by saying that there
was no evidence of premeditated or
presumption of murder, and especially
as Massey is an officer of the law I will
admit him to bail." T
ADMITTED TO BAIL.
Judge Pope laid special emphasis
upon the fact that the bond was al- F
lowed and made light on account of
the fact that Massey was an officer of
the law and fixed the bond at $1,000,
with two sureties and not more than
five. The bond will be given in Spar
Bachman Chapel and Unien AcademyChips. A

Well, Mr. Editor, we are expecting

know it does women a deal of good to
gather together and talk over their CI
little troubles, compare notes and talk
about the fashions; tell what they have 01
not got, and what they would like to
have, and never say a word of praise d(
about what the old man has done, at
But such is the nature of woman, and Iu
they must not keep all of their troubles h<

dear ladies, for with the old veteran, I as
will exclaim, "God bless the women!"
Mr. Editor, we are neither on the in
