NOW FOR WATER WORKS.
A Survey to be ade-An Artesian Well
Can Be Bored Through Our Granite and
Pare Water Secured-Nothing to Do
Now but to (so Forward-Now
Is the Time for Action.
The prospects f.ir a system of water
works for Newberry are brighter now
than they have been since the question
has been agitated. One question that
has been in the way all the time has
been, where to get good and -pure
.water. A number of persons have
been in favor of an artesian well, but
the opinion seemed to prevail that,
owing to the granite foundation here,
such a well was not practicable. An
artesian well would give us pure and
good water, and now that a practical
well borer tells us that granite is no
obstacle it seems that we have the
thing practically secured.
The Herald and News has been fight
ing for water works for several years,
and we have consistently and persist
ently labored for them, even at times
with very little encouragement; but
we lelt that it was a good cause, and
one that would eventually succeed
because it would be a necessity.
- Last week, by invitation of council,
Col. J. W. Baum, of Atlanta, a practi
cal water works man, visited our town,
and after having a conference with the
council met a number of our citizens
in Council Chambers, and the matter
was discussed. He presented his views
upon the subject and answered a num
ber of questions.
Alderman Cabaniss called the meet
ing to order and stated the object to be
to get some information from Colonel
Baum with reference to a system of
water works, and he asked that the
citizens present feel at perfect ease
to ask any questions that might occur
to them, as it was desired to secure all
the information possible on the sub
Col. Baum stated that he was not an
orator, but wanted to talk business to
business men in a business way. He
said he had been in the Southern
States for the past several years, and
had made the subject of water works
for small towns and cities a special
study, and that he had put down
about forty artesian wells. He has
just finished a well at Aiken, in this
State, and the town is now putting in
In answer to the question as to
whether an artesian well could be
bored here owing to our granite fouu
dation, be said he thought it could;
that the country was very favorable
for such a well. Rock is preferred to
dirt in boring, and water is not se
cured until rock is reached. The well
in Aiken was 465 feet, and he thought
water could be obtained here by going
from 300 to 400 feet, and that one well
would be sufficient.
He thought we ought to have from
75 to 100 hydrants, and that about five
miles of water mains would be sutii
cient to reach all portions of the town;
and that the whole plant, including
the well, could be built for not exceed
ing $25,000. His idea was, to pump the
water from the well into the stand pipe
through the mains which supplied the
town, and in this way every one w io
used from the system would have fresh
water from the well all the time while
the pump was running; and when the
pump was not running the mains
would be supplied from the stand pipe.
The revenue from water rents from
private persons, he thought, would pay
the operating expenses of the system,
the interest on the bonds, and leave a
surplus to begin retiring the bonds
and his idea of rent was not high. He
based ilt on $1 per month to a private
house where one p:pe was used. Of
course, a bath tub pipe and a lawn pipe
would be extra.
The insurance companies in New
berry now collect something more than
$13,030 in premiums. As has been ex
plained before, Newberry is in what is
called the third class, and, if we had a
good system of water works, would be
entitled to be p laced in the second
cass, which would make the basis rate
twenty-five cents less on the hundred
dollars insured. If that were done, the
people of the town would save more in
the matter of insurance than the inter
est on the bonds.
Col. Baum thought he could com
plete tbe well in from three to four
months, and the entire system in from
six to eight months.
He said he would contract to bore
300 feet at $5 per foot, and furnish all
piping for the well. But, in his opin
ion, the first thing to do was to make
a survey of the town and an estima.e
of the cost, and then we would know
what we were doing. He said he was
willing to make such survey for $200.
Upon motion of Mr. R. L. McCaugh
rin, seconded by Hon. Geo. S. Mower,
the council was authorized to go ahead
and have the survey made.
Col. Baum is expected here this
week, and will go right ahead with the
From the way Col. Baum talks, it
would seem that the question of secur
ing water was one of the small parts
of the cost. If we can get water in 300
fee; in sufficient quantities to supply
the town, that will only cost $1,500;
and that is cheaper than getting it
from the creek or spring, and, in addi
tion, we will know that we are then
getting good and pure water.

PRESENTMENT OF GRAND JURY.
To 753 Honor, Ernest Gary, Judge
On closing the duties reqtuired of us,
the grand jury would respectfully sub
mit the following as their report.
We would, first, beg to tender your
honor, and the honorable Solicitor our
thanks for the kindness shown us, and
for the valuable instruction given us,
which has aided us much in the dis
charge of our duties.
We find that certain much needed
work in the jail yard and which was
recommended to be done by the last
grand jury, which work is required for
the health and comfort of the family
living on the lot, and which work is
greatly needed for the preservation of
the property of the county, has re
ceived no attention whatever from the
county comm issioners. Now we do
not repeat the recommendation of the
former grand jury, but we ask that the
said county commissioners be required
to show cause why they have failed to
obey the plain directions of this court.
We would ask that*the county com
missioners be required to report to'this
jury at our next meeting, as to the
number of picks, shovels and other
tools that have been purchased by
them for the county and given out to
road overseers, and received from their
predecessors, what they paid for them,
and if they ever taken receipts for them
when taken out. We would further
ask that said commissioners be required
to report to this jury how much lum
ber has been bought by them for the
use of the county, and if all such lum
ber has been actually used for the ben
efit of the county, and if not, what has
become of the balance. And farther,
if any lumber paid for by the county
has been allowed to lie and rot on the
We are of the opinion that in the
interest of the morals of the county, the
law on our statute books in regard to
persons living in adultery and fornica
tion should be so amended as to make
it less difficult to convict persons known
to be living in this way in open viola..
tion of law and decency. Under the
technicalities of the law as now on our
statute books a conviction for those
offences is next to impossible, whbile it
is well known that the law in this par
ticular is being continually violated in
every section of the county.
Recruring to the jail we would say
that the committees appointed to ex
amine, reported that they found the
jaiil clean and nicely kept, the prison
ers seemed to have been well cared for,
but the jail building was found in bad
condition. Many repairs recommended
by former grand juries have not been
made. The gutters are out of repair,
and the rain water is thereby turned
against the wall and has done much
injury to the wall, the floor and plas
tering. The windows have not been
repaired as was directed. The rain
blowing through the broken windows
is injuring the building.
We are informed that the board of
control of the Dispensary hold their
meetings in the grand jury room, and
that they use freely the stationery,
wood, etc., be'onging to, and paid for by
the county. We recommend that said
board be required to furnish all their
own supplies and pay for the same out
of the proceeds of their business.
The committee that examined the
court house reported that the ceiling
overhead in the jury room to the left
of his honor is in bad condition, and is
in need of repairs. The room is in gern
eral bad candition and is not really fit
for a decent person to enter. Thbe room
has not been cleaned up, and the odor
therefrom is vcry offensive. There are
not sufficient chairs to seat a jury.
The room is also crowded with boxes
so as to ecarcely leave room for a jury
when in there. We recommend that
these boxes be removed and the room
be given a general cleaning, and that
thbe person employed receive no pay as
he has done no good.
The committee visiting the poor
house report most favorably every
thing in good condition, and they
speak in terms of the highest praise of
Mrs. Leitzsey, wife of the very efficient
keeper. There is need of a crib for the
use of the poor house farm. We recom
mend that a crib ne built at once.
Sec. 802 requires Trial Justices to re
port each and every month to the
County Auditor and Treasurer of all
fines, forfeitures, etc., collected by
them. This has severe penalties at
tached, for failure to discharge this
duty, but we are informed that no' re
The misssonary societies of New
Chapel will have an Easter service next
Sunday morning. The exercises by the
children will he followed by a sermon
from Rev. W. L. Wait.
Services will be held in the Lutheran
church during tbte week at 4 p. m., and
on Good Friday at I1 a. m. The rite of
confirmation will be administered and
the holy communion celebrated on
Easter Sunday at 11 a. in., with ser
vices also at 7.45 p. in. The church will
be decorated as usual.
Last Sunday being Palm Sunday in
the ecclesiastical calendar, the chancel
of St. Luke's was dressed for the oc
casion. The decoration was tasteful
and beautiful and consisted simply of
the green leaves of the palm and white
and purple lilies gracefuly interlaced in
front of the chancel, reading desk and
altar. The white cross upon the altar
revealed itself through this fragrant of
fering of early spring flowers-the white
being typical of the purity and the pur
ple symbolic of the royal robe of the
most illustrious Sufferer ever suspended
upon its arms. On next Sunday, the
festival of Easter, a full service may be
expected by the rector in the morning
and service in the afternoon at 5;
o'clock. The public is cordially-invited
to attend these services.

are good seeds at Pelham'ta, and as we
have good weather now and good
Friday approaches, it may be well for
the gardener to think of these matters.

Newberry had two members of the
graduating class in the Medical College
of South Carolina held in Charleston
last week. The Herald and News is
glad to chronicle the fact that both of
them stood high in a class of nineteen
and were among the honor men. They
are Dr. P. Gray Ellesor and Dr. Israel
Brown. Dr. Ellesor stood third in the
class and Dr. Brown fourth, and both
are entitled to the appointment of
hou.e physicians to the city hospital.
Dr. Brown was also the historian of the
class. The News and Courier says of

Brown's address was humorous in the
extreme, and was frequently inter

The grand jury yesterday had up a
baby ease. A white chila ws left
with Mary Jane Baker about two
months ago by some one unknown,
and the grand jury undertook yester
day to investigate the matter, but they
did not reach any conclusion. Mary
Jane says she has no idea who the per
son was who left the baby, and she says
that the woman told her she would
call for it the next day, or possibly
that night, but no one has up to this
made demand for the unknown baby.
Mary Jane says it is a fine baby and
she does not want to give it up unless
she is given something for her trouble.
The present grand jury is a business
body and means to dis2harge its du
ties without fear or favor. They fin
ished up their work by the recess hour
yesterday and were discharged.
