Charged With Murder.
Sheriff Buford on Saturday received
from Magistrate Fant, at Whitmire, a
warrant for the arrest of Bill Caldwell,
colored, charged with the murder of
Jerry Barksdale, colored, near Whit
mire, on the morning of the 4th of July.
Sheriff Buford having reason to believe
that Caldwell was in Laurens, immedi
ately enclosed the warrant to the sheriff
of that county. who made the arrest,
and the at . murderer was brought
to Newberry Tuesday and is now in jail.
Jerry Barksdale, the man whom it is
charged Caldwell killed, was found
dead near the G., C. & N. railroad track
about a mile below Whitmire on the
fourth of July. The coroner was sent
for and held an inquest, the verdict of
the jury being that the said Barksdale
met his death by a train on the G., C.
& N. road. The mother of the dead
man, however, was not satisfied. She
knew that her son had com9rom Ches.
ter to Whitmire in company with Cald
wel, and after the killing she says she
saw her dead son's hat and overalls,
besmeared with blood, in Caldwell's
possession. She knew that about this
time Caldwell left Whitmire and walked
to Laurens. Strong suspicion was
aroused and she went to Magistrate
Fant and told her story and asked that
the warrant be issued.
The clue upon which Sheriff Buford
and Magistrate Fant work +t first
was small, but the Sheriff < .ays
be depended upon to get his iian.

rendered in the sum of $74.05.
The case of Martin J. Young, Execu
tor, vs. Eliza M. Chappell et al, was
argued before the Judge on demurrei
and dammurrer was overruled.
Also the case of Charlotte Crede vs.
Mary Ann Spehl, appeal from probate
court. In this case Mrs. Crede was
suing for dower in the estate of her
late husband. Louis Crede, and the
dower had been allowed by the Probate
Judge, who was here overruled.
Also W. P. Harmon, Executor, vs.
Kissiah Harmon et al., exceptions to
Master's report. Exceptions overruled.
In the case of J. A. Sligh et al, vs.
Bowers et al, exceptions to Master's
report. The Master's report was con

bidding the removal of the site of the
schoolhouse at Slighs made permanent.
In March of the present year this
schoolhouse was destroyed by fire.
Previous to this, as far back as 1893,
there had been an agitation amongst
certain patrons of the school who did
not want the site of the building to re
main on the lands of Mr. J. A. Sligh.
Immediately after the fire they determ
ined to rebuild in a different location
and started the work. An injunction,
which was here sustained, was secured
by the plaintiffs.

Mr. P. J. Voss Gives the Cost of Sewerage
In Union, Aiken and AnCerson.
Editor Herald and News: I herewith
give you some data concerning sewer-"
age which our people are very much _
interested in just now. I will give you
the figures which I obtained at Ander
son, Union and Aiken, S. C.
Anderson, S. C., has contracted for
13 1-2 miles of sewerage, size ranging
from 8 in. to 18 in., at a cost of $38,000,
including every item. You will note
the sizes of the pipe, and there is very
much more rock there than can possibly
be at Newberry.
Union, S. C.: The contract has been
let there for eleven miles of sewerage,
ranging in size from 8 in. to 16 in., at
a cost of $32,000, including every item.
Aiken, S. C.: The city of Aiken has
ten miles of sewers, ranging from 6 in.
to 15 in. which cost them $25,000, in- 4
cluding everything. While they had t
no rock here, they had practically all
sand ditches, and it was difficult to (
keep them from caving, and they had b
to be dug, some of them, twenty-five
feet deep. I got this information from J
parties who are in position to know, c
and I presume it correct. This is merely S
for the information of our citizens, as -

and although several were chased, only
two were captured.
These two were brought to trial c
yesterday morning, Mayor Klett
