A Board of Trade or Board of Commerce to
Look to the.dty's Interests.
The business men of Newberry needs
to awake to the interests of their city
and see that it is corning to the front
and keeping up with other cities of its
size in the State and throughout the
We read in our exchanges from neigh
boring towns where the Board of Trades
or Board of Cornerce of those towns
are holding meetings and taking up and
advocating movements that will benefit
their city and, of course, themselves.
This is what Newberry needs, and
why is it that some wide-awake citi
zens do not take the initiative and call
a meeting to organize such a board.
There are several things right at this
time which such a body could take up
and by agitating put on foot movements
that would, in the end, result in much
good for Newberry.
For instance, there is but little doubt,
if we had a Board of Trade and the
matter of a union depot, which is at
the present time a pressing need for
the convenience and accommodation of
the public, was taken up, it would re
sult in one being erected, or the coming
together of both roads in such a move
Then again the subject of steel
bridges across Scott's creek, near the
depot, to take the pla.ce of the danger
ous and sightly trestles now there,
could be taken up and presented to the
railroads, which might result in the
erection of new bridges-meaning an
expenditure of several thousands dol
lars here and something that would
prove an ornament instead of an eye
Then there is the much talked of Bell
Telephone question, in the solution of
which a Board of Trade could do much.
Some of these things do not come
properly before a city council for solu
tion. Their duty is to make and exe
cute the laws-and in taking up these
questions often times it reacts against
the object aimed at, and results in
defeat of what would be best for the
city. People generally revolt at the
idea of even having the appearance of
being driven to do a thing.
A Board of Trade in a city could do
much by having different committees
of business men appointed to talk up
and gather information on all subjects
and keep an eye-single to the upbuilding
of the city, and in the end result in
lasting and untold improvements.
Let Newberry try it! Who will call
a meeting of the citizens and organize

DEATH' OF COL.
T. W. HOLLOWAY.
HE DIED SUDDENLY AT HIS HOME AT
POMARIA TUESDAY NIGHT.
One of the Oldest and Most Respected Citi
zens of the County-He Will be Missed
Not Only at Home But Through
out the State-Buried at Beth
The sad news was received in New
berry Wednesday morning of the death
of Col. Thos. W. Holloway at his home
at Pomaria Tuesday night at 11 o'clock.
Col. Holloway had been suffering
more qr less with rheumatism since
last fall, having had a severe attack
last October. A great deal of the time
lately he had been confined to his room,
but on Monday he was up and walking
about. Tuesday night at 11 o'clock,
unexpectedly, he died.
The following sketch of Col. Hollo
way is taken from the Columbia State,
of the 21st.
"Col. Tom Holloway was one of na
ture's noblemen; no finer South Caro
linian ever lived. His friendship was
undying. His devotion to his State was
part of his existence. He stood for all
that was high and elevating. For sev
eral years conditions were such that
but for Col. Thomas W. Holloway the
State fair would never have been in
existence today; there were times when
the Fair society was Thomas W. Hol
"Col. Thomas W. Holloway was born
in Newberry county March 28, 1829.
His school advantages were limited,
but by wise and careful self-culture he
has acquired a ready and accurate
knowledge of the English language,
and accumulated a large fund of useful
information on general subjects.
"At the age of 15 years he was bereft
)f father and mother, and was com
pelled to rely upon his own efforts to
mupport himself and to prepare for
"In 1846 he went to Columbia and en
,aged himself as a clerk in a grooery
store, until the Columbia and Green
ville railroad was built, 25 miles from
Columbia, where he was placed in
3harge of the freight department. The
road being continued to Newberry, he
was traniferred to that place as agent,
but at that time he was too young to
rive a bond.
"In 1852 Mr. Holloway was elected
!ashier of the Bank of Newberry,
which position he held until he pur
thased a farm at Pomaria in 1855, en
raging at the same time in meachan
lizing and farming. Thesformer busi
iess he continued until 1890, while also
iving his attention to the supervision
)f his farm, of which he was very fond.
"He has employed his unwearying
energies in his spare time in perform
ing the pressing duties of secretary of
the State Agricultural and Mechanical
Society of South Carolina.
"Col. Holloway was a member of Po
naria-Grange, No. 27, K. of H., at its
3rganization, and the first worthy mas
ber. The State grange was organized
.n 1873, and he was the worthy steward
intil 1877, when he was elected secre
ary, which position he held until that
rder was superseded by the Alliance.
"Col. Holloway became a member of
~he State Agricultural and Mechanical
Society of South Carolina at its organ
zation in 1858, and was head clerk un
ler the late secretary, A. G. Summer,
mnd also under Robert G. Gage, who
succeeded Col. Summer, until the War
Between the State.
"In 1869 the society was reorganized
with Gen. Johnson Hagood as presi
lent and the late I). Wyatt Aiken as
secretary. Under this organization
Mir. Holloway held the position of head
alcrk until 1874, when Col. Aiken de
:lined re-election, and Mr. Holloway
succeeded him as secretary and treas
irer. Owing to the increased work of
the two positions the twvo offices were
livided a few years ago, and he has for
many years been secretary alone.
"Under his judicious management
the State fairs have been a series "f
progressive successes. Col. Hollow..y
has repeatedly received the merited
:listinction of being most aggressive
and best qualified secretary in any of
"Col. Holloway has been twice mar
:d. By his first union he has three
children and 14 granchildren. His sec
Dnd wife is still living, as are their two
children, a son and (laughter.
"His faith was in connection With the
Lutheran church, and he has been a
member of the board of trustees of
Newberry College for many years. By
his active interest in this institution,
and in other ways, he showedl himself
the friend and patron of higher educa
"his course in life was, in a large
measure, dlirectedl by the advices andl ex
amp)le of the learned and pious Chief
Justice Belton O'Neall, of whom he
was a protege."~
The funeral was held at Bethlehem
church yesterday morning at 11 o'clock,
of whici. church Col. Holloway was an
earnest andl consistent member and
officer. Col. Holloway was the father
of Mrs. Edw. R. Hlipp andl H. C. HIol
loway, Esq., of this city, who with the
o)ther members of his devoted family,
have the heartfelt sympathy of the en

SPECIAL REPORT OP SUPBRINTBNDBNT
EUGENB S. WBRTS.
A Review of What Has Been Done During
His Administration, and What Needs
to be Done to Help the Schools.
The following report of Superinten
dent of Education Eug. S. Werts, is
taken from the annual report of the
State Superintendent of Education:
Notwithstanding my efforts to raise
the standard of education in my county,
I have met with some difficulties which
held in check somewhat, the progress
that might otherwise have been real
One of the most noticeable of these
difficulties, perhaps, was the adoption
of new text-books in the schools. I
found in my efforts to enforce the law
respecting the "New Adoption" that
in many of the schools there were pa
trons who felt financially indisposed to
comply with such a wholesale change
of books. As a result the enrolment
throughout the county was greatly di
minished. This difficulty, however,
has been met successfully, and I am
glad to say that every school in the
county has fallen in the line of advance
ment and is now using a uniform set of
I am gratified to note that in the last
two years the teachers have attained a
marked degree of efficiency, and, as a
whole, have done very faithful, efficient
and most satisfactory work. It is evi
dent, however, that in order to secure
the services of the most competent and
expert teachers there must be an in
crease of salary, such as will warrant
the employment of such teachers. I
am glad to state that the salaries for
teachers in Newberry County for the
past two years have increased some
what, and there are now few teachers
in the county who receive less than
thirty dollars per month for a term of
six to nine months.
In pursuance of my desires to raise
the standard of education and secure a
more thorough and efficient corps of
teachers, it has been my aim and pur
pose always to be very careful as to the
grading of examination papers and thus
allow no persons to receive first grade
certificates except those who are justly
entitled to and worthy of the same.
We have a Teachers' Association
'hat meets the second Saturday in
every month. By this means of bring
ing the teachers in contact with one an
other much good has been accomplished
in the way of educational progress.
Our association is neeting with marked
success, and I feel proud of the fact
that I have conducted so successfully
such an important organization in my.
county. I think, to promote the cause
of education, every county in South
Carolina should have some kind of
As a whole, the school houses are
good, and I think wvill compare with
those of any of the counties of the
State. Many of them are new and
well equipped with modern improve
ments in the way of patent desks and
other school furniture. There are still
a few old school houses in the county
that I hope very soon to have removed
and have erected in their stead mor~e
modern and up-to-date buildings. In
this connection, howvever, it is pleasant
for me to note that in the town of Pros
perity there is soon to be erected a
handsome and well equippledl school
building that will add honor andl credlit
to the town. I am always glad to en
courage such enterp)rises of this kind.
NEED MORE MONEY.
One of the greatest needs resp)ecting
our educational facilities here in the
South, is more money. We must have
it before we can ever hope to educate
the great mass of cur people. One of
the best plans for obtaining more mon
ey, now in op)eration, is the levying of
a special tax for the ~schools. There
are at p)resent ten school districts in
my county that have a special levy of
two mills, and 1 should be glad indleedl
if all school dlistricts in the county
would adopt this plan of advancing the
educational interests of the ir respect
NEED OF COMP'ULSORY EDUCATION.
Trhere is one more very important
feature I should like to include in this
report, and that is the irregularity on
the pare of p)arents in sendling their
children to school. Although t he plan
of our educational system is by no
means an ideal one, it (does seem that
parents might make the proper use of
what opportunities are afforded them
under the present system, and send(
their children to school as regularly as
possible. I am convincedl that if pa
rents are uInder obligations to their
children in one resp)ect, they are so in
all respects. Since the Ruling Power
of the Universe has blessed man with
Children, iIe did it that they might he
brought up in such a wvay as to be most
useful to their country, and glorify
Hlim. To this endl it is necessary for
our children to be educated, and, as
the head of education in Newberry
County, I hope to see some kind of law
enacted that will require parents to
sendl their children to school.
IIOP'E FOR Till. FUTTURE.
It shall he my lan in the next term
of my administration to continue my
same line of advancement, and by the
end of the next two years I hope tc
realize marked and wonderful progresh
in the schools of Newberry County. 1
hope to make Nwhnery econnd to nonn
n the State in respect to her educa
For fear of indulging too long on this
review I shall now close with thanks
and sincere praise for the very valua
ble and high-toned way in which you
have conducted the affairs of education
in South Carolina during your term of
office. I am sure, in going out of oflice,
you carry with you the honor and re-'
spect of every true citizen of South
Hoping that this report may be of .
benefit to you, I am,
