LEE'S MONUMENT.
The feeling which still exists in the
North against the South ani its herots
of the Civil War is clearly shown in the
spirit of the opposition to a Bill rtent
ly iutxiuctdi n the Pennsylvania Lep
islature "to provide a commission and
appropriat ion to ereot, in o-operation
wth the State of Virginia. an eques
trian st. feue of General Robert E. ILe
on the battlefield of Gettysburg."
Though the Bill was introduced by a
Mr. Cooper. its real author is Col. A. K.
Mc'Clure. who was for many years edi
tor of the Philadelphia Times, and who
himself a 'nion veteran.
T'he Bill was vigorously and bitterly
opposed. and the South deeply regrets
that it was ever intlxkiucei. We recog
ni:.e the fact that Col. McClure was act
uated by none save the purest motives.
and that his sole purpotse was to give
the South and her great chieftain the
same place on the field of Gettysburg
which they occupied when it was swept
by shot and shell. and when brave men
faced t heir brot hers for a cause each
believed to be just. But we dis!ike very
much to see the name of Lee so placed
that an opportunity is given to very
small men to sneer at the memory of a
great man and 1o show their shallow
minds.
We would be very much pleased if
there were a statue of I ee at Gettys
burg, and one worthy of the cause
which it commemorates. But there is
need of none. I ee's greatest mont,
ment is the deep love and reverence
which for him will ever exist in the
hearts of the Southern people. \V hat
greater monomment. or more enduring.
could mof tal wish? The very monuments
which crowd the field of Gettysburg,
telling of the glorious leeds of the
Northern hosts, tell also of the heroism
of those who wore the gray. Can glc
rious deeds he performed in conquering
a weaker foe, unless a w rker foe per
form deeds more glorious? That is the
question that will spring to the lips of
each t hought ful person who visits the
battlefiteld of Gettysburg.
''he incident in regard to the Bill
serves only to show the narrovness of
spirit which still prevails nnong some
people who live at the North and who
call themselves Americans. It hurts
the ! out h not at all.
TilE ROADS.
It is a sa(d commentary upon our civili
zation that our roads shouh be in their
present condition. There can scarcely
he found a go( I road in Newberry
cunty when the best of weather pre
vails, anl during a rainy period like
that which has continued for the past
several weeks, the roads are almost
impassable. Something is radically
wrong when such a state of affairs
exists. The trouble lies in the law
nder which the roads are worked.
We wish the Legislature could s:.nd
a few dhuys ini this county just, now
andt at teimpt to drive over aniy road in
the county. We believe that evei y
member without excepltion would go
back to Columbia dleterminedl to take
)ime act ion loo0k ing toward(s roadl im
p ravemnentI.
There is not hing ta be gained by
keelping uip the present system. What
we need and what the pleople demandl
is ai prloperty tax that shall be ex,,n:d

peCtition wh1ich was very largely sigie
by the leading business men of thi
city requtesting of cotncil that a frau

SENA TE' TA KES SA FE. SIDE-.
The Senate transacted a gcod deal of
business on Wednesday mo-ning and
took a vote on several impmrtant meas
ures, and then decided that on account
of the fact that it was a pa t of the
.Joint. Assembly which had taken a re
cess from' the previous day, action
as at sepaurate bodly might be held ille
gal, andl it was decided that Wednies
(lay's calendar- be replaced and made the
calendar for Thurtsdlay.
The questions upon which act ion was
taken were those of biennial sessions,
and child labor, Mr. Marshall's Child
Labor Bill came tip for a second read
ing, atnd after a gocd (heal of dliscuissioni
it wvas moved that the enacting wordls
of the Bill be stricken out. The mo
tion was killed by a vote of 22 to 13 and
the Bill ordered to at third read(ing. Mr.
Warren's Joint Resohtition to amend th(
Constittution so as to p)rovide for bien
nial sessions wasi passeCd by a vote of 2
to 6. The Raysor Compulsory Educa
tioni Bill was dliscuissed and postponed.
While the Senate dotubts the legality
of its action in these matter's and agair
p)laced them on its calendar todlay, yet
the votes taken yesterd(ay are an inde>
of the views of the Senate, and an~
ftirther action will not change the situ.

THE PUDLIC WORKS,
Cotmssiouers Appear Cit C Lan
cli With mmakacatkn nd
RcComtmedatMos.
The Boand of Cominnsskiners of l -
lie Works appeared beforv the City
Council at their meeting Whe naay
night and presented the followitg com
municat ion and rwon emiations, which
will be of interest to the citi ns of the
city. The Council postpokAl action on
the recommendations and will take the
matter up at an early date.
RKIPOR' e;T OF THR eA)W.
The Board of Public Works would
respect.fully rquest of the City ('ouneil
a careful examination of the following
communicat.ion:
Since the inception of the water
works at d electric lighting plant, the
effort of the Board has been to give to
the community as much water and e
rood lighting service as possible at the
least cost, and in carrying out that pur
pose they have made tais mistake: that
water and light service has been fur
nished so near to actual cost price that
the system has never been able to lay
aside the necessary money that the ex
tension and repairs now call for.
They have no funds to fall back upon
to make extensions, and the growth of
the city now demands an enlargement
of the plant, and to bring this matter
to the attention of the citizens the
Board makes the following statement:
1st. Our supply of water is as perfect
as the day it wes turned over to the
Board. We have only one well and
well pump, a stand-pipe of 280,0C3 gal
lons capacity, and a small reservoir of
an estimated capacity of 140,600 gal
lons.
The daily average consumption now
varies from 45,000 to 60,0&') gallons and
the average daily consumption in the
summer is from 60,000 to 75,000 gallons
per (lay. (Last summer one day there
was consumed 140,009 gallons.) This,
you can see, does not give us a sufficient
reset v'e supply of water in case of an
accident to our well-pumping machinet y.
For w ith the demand soon to be made
for water for the sewer system (from
10,0.)0 to 15,70) gallons daily), with the
reg.lar daily demand, we should have a
rese voir of 750,000 gallor's capacity at
the vety least.
2nd. The electtic light plant was in
stalled with capacity for 1,000incandes
cent lights. We now have attached to
it. circuits 1,604 lights, greatly over
loading the capacity, and still other par
ties wanting lights, which we are forced
to decline as we have more on now than
we can carry with any degree of safety
to the plant. The are machine carries
50 lights of 2,000 candle power, and is
at its limit.
Take Greenville for instance: She
pays $97.50 per year"for each are lamp
of 1,200 candle power. Atlanta pays
$82.50 each per year. Water com
panies all over the countty charge from
$24.09 to $50 per annum for each fire
hydrant in the street. Newberry now
has 84 hydrants for which she pays
nothing.
The first contract that the Board
made wvith the Council was that wve
wvoul'l only charge cost price for street
lighting and fire hydrant .ervice. The
Boardl furnished 47 arc lights of 2,000
candle power at $80.00 each per annum
andl charged the city nothing for fire
service.
Under these conditions the receipts
from the city andl for (domestic ser vice
paidl all the t unning expenses and for
the first thiree years enabled the Boardl
to exp)andl in extensions of water and
light plant all that has been necessary.
With the beginning of 1901 there had
been such a demand for extensions that
the Board brought the matter to the
attention of the Council, with the propo
sition that the Boardl should either
charge the city $20.00 per annum for
each fire hydrant, or, if the Council
would make an appropriationi of $1,500
per year, in addition to wvhat they were
already paying for street lights, the
'Boardl would attemp)t to run the plant
on that basis and exp)and the plants as
-fair as the extra appropriations would
allow, with the expectation that the
same arrangement wvould be carried out
thr'ough the year 1902. Out of the ex
pected $1,500 to be paid (luring each of
the yea.s~ 1901 and 1902 the Board only
receivedl during the two years (1901
and 1902) $840 of this amount. Tlhe in
come undler the p)resent arrangements
is estimated at $9,500 for 1903 andl ex
p)enses estimatedl at $8,500 to $9,000,
- leaving a probable p)rofit of $500 to
- $1,c03.
If the city had the means now to put
a the water plant and electric lighting
3systems in better operating condlitions
3 -a larger pump for the well and
improved electi ic a)paratus--the in
Scome wvould increase, and at the same
time the expenses for fuel, carbons and
-repairs wvould diminish by a large per
I centt. In view of the fact that we
- badly need an increased capacity for a
reservye supplly of wvater, and an en
largement of the electi ic lighting p)lant
I to make same satisfactoty, the Board
wvould respectfully request that a full
meeting of the Council 1 e called and
the whole matter I . thoroughly (is
cussd an such plans foi mulated as
cuss e to the best interest of the town.
The Board must either increpse the
price of lights and water to indlividluals
and increrse the 1)1 ice charged for each
arc light and charge the city for each
fire hydrant to set aside tunds for nec
essary 2xpenses and improvements, or
the city will have to arrange to place
at the dlisposal of the Boardi stuch an
amount of money as may be necessary
to do a portion of this work at once.

and Henry Burton, ,lohn Peterson,
Newt Davidson and Mr. Williams would
always meet theie on mail days. They
would jerk long bullet.s. tetl jokes
and have a good tin-' generally. Mr.
Williams rarely got any letters, but
Peterson. Burton and Davidson had a
:onsiderable correspondence. Mr. Wil
liams said he did not understand why
people wrote to them and would not
write to him. Finally they talked the
matter over with Maj. C. II. Suber
and got him to write to pam ties in
7harleston, Montgomery and Mobile,
Alabamna and New Orleans. La. , and
get them to write to Mr. Williams.
Any subject would do. The first letter
,ame from Montgomely and said that
dte writer had heard of Mr. Williams
as a fine fat mer and wanted to sell him
his plantation near that place. When
the postmaster handed Mr. Williams
the letter he was besides himself, said:
I have a letter! I have a letter! When
he read it he was sui prised. This was
the beginning and when from two to
three came each week, Mr. Williams
knew it was a job put up on him, but
it took him nearly a year to catch on.
le was a good fisherman and usually
had the luck, but some times he got
left. ienmy Burton and Mr. Williams
were fishing one day and Mr. Williams
""aught several small suckers, Henry
Burton had caught none. (I forgot to
say that Mr. Williams' way of dividing
the ' -h was if he caught them he was
to have all the fish, but if the other
lellow caught them Mr. Williams wes
to have half the fish and first choice.)
Finally Mr. Burton went to another
place and caught a seven pounder and a
small one or two. Ile then came to
Mr. Williams and said luck was bad
and let's divide the fish and go home.
Mr. Williams said that each one was to
have the fish he caught. Mr. Burton
begged for one for his mother, but Mr.
Williams would not divide. Then Mr.
Burton went and got his fish and
brought them up and Mr. Williams
grabbed the large fish and claimed it in
the divide. But Burton would not di
vide and would not let Mr. Williams go
home with him to help eat the fish.
