THB TBLBPHONB SITUATION.
Newberry to Have Good Telephone Ser
vice-Long Distanve:Connection With
Outside World Through the
Bell Company.
The Southern Bell Telephone Coni
' pany is evidencing its desire to giv
Newberry a first-class telephone sye
tem, by the active manner in which i
is going over the local system recentl:
purchased from Mr. Floyd, preparinj
an estimate, which will show in detai
every item of material necessary ti
metallic circuit the plant, and install it
system of long distance telephones
The business men of the city are mani
festing their desire to see the Bell Comn
* pany in operation here by signing
petition which is being circulated by
Mr. R. D. Smith, which petition, if ac.
cepted by the Bell Compar,y, will be ir
effect a contract on its part to furnis}
first-class service at the rates mentioned
therein- which - rates are the same
charged in other towns of this size-for
a period of five years.
A reporter for The Herald and News
saw Mr. J. Epps Brown, special agent
of the Bell Company, who authorized
the following statement:
"The Southern Bell Telephone Com
pany, as I have previously stated, pro
poses to give the subscribers here first
class telephone service, to do which
will require the immediate expenditure
o a oonsiderable sum of money. To this
end a competent construction man has
been here for the past few days, going
carefully over every route in the city,
obtaining the data from which will be
prepared at once an estimate showing
every item of material necessary to
metallic circuit the entire local plant,
put in a new switchboard and install
long-distance Bell instruments at each
and every station-business and resi
dence. Immediately following the com
pletion of this estimate, the required
material will be ordered, and upon its
receipt, the actual work of rebuilding
the plant will proceed without delay.
When this work is comp!ei and
, new service is noted, I apprehend an
m1; increase of 25 per cent. in the number
of subscribers now connected with the
exchange. This has been the experience
elsewhere where the Bell Company has
gotten hold of local plants, rebuilt them
and furnished improved service--and as
Newberry is one of, if not the best,
place on earth, I see no reason why this
should not be the result here.
"All parties who own their own lines,
and connect with the local system here
will be allowed to continue these con
nections-except that the Bell Company
will furnish them telephones instead of
having them furnish their own instru
ments. This will give them much bet
ter service than they now get. The
only thing we will insist upon is that
they will keep their lines in good shape,
so as not to depreciate our local service.
Unlimited service will also becontinued
between Newberry and Prosperity.
"The long distance lines will be cut
into the central office just as soon as
practicable and a booth installed so that
those desiring to do so, can get the use
of the long distance lines. After the
local plant is rebuilt, these lines will be
cut into the switchboard and any sub
scriber can then talk from his residence
or business station without going to a
pay station."
In reply to a question as to the result
of the Bell Company having a monopoly,
SMr. Browvn said:
* "I can best answer your question by
*{asking you to note the result in those
towns and cities where it now has and
has always had, wvhat is termed a mo
.nopoly. In those p)laces, which are
~Tumerous, the subscribers are entirely
>atisfied with our service and our rates,
'being willing to p)rofit by the experience
of n.umerous other towvns which have
tried the expensive experiment of two
c'ompanies. In Rome, Griffin, Newnan,
Athens, Macon, Columnbus, Americus,
flbany, Thomasville, Ga., in Mont
gomery, Gadsden, Anniston, Troy,
Q peleka, Ala., Pensacola, Fla., andl
In numerous other towns and cities, the
ell Company has always had the field
xclusively, and notwvithstanding the
4'ak you hear about the monopolistic
. ndencies of this institution it remains
Sfact that in none of the towns men
loned have rates been made dlifferent
Som rates in other towns and cities of
milar size. In Columbus, Ga., and
ensacola, Fla., towns in the same class
ith reference to size as Columbia, S.
.the rates are the same in each - and
t in the twvo former the Bell Comn
nny has always had the field exclu
vely, and in Columbia there is a corn
ting company. In Americus, Ga.,
ith the exclusive field, the rates are
e unmve as at Spartanburg, a town of
mihur size, where until recently there
as a competing company. Further, in
all of the above mentioned towns where
the Bell Company has had the exclusive
field, the lalnts have all been periodi
cally rebuilt, in order to keep up the ser
vice. Tpalk is cheap, but it takes facts
to back it up) --not idlle predictions.
"'The Southern Bell Company pro
poses to give goodl service, at rates
wvhich they know, (not think) are en
tirely reasonable -anid the complete and
absolute financial failure of so many in
(dependent comp)anies who try to (o1i
for less, only substantiates our state
ments that first-class service cannot b<
furnished for less, except at a loss o:
money, and while the Southern Bel
Company is anxious to furnish the ver:
best class of service it is not willing t
(10 so for rates wvhich its long experienic
has taught it would mean a loss o
money.
As to the petition, Mr. Brown sai
that his company appreciated such evi
patrons, and upon the presentation c
this petition to his company, the sam
would be officially acknowledged an
accepted under the terms therein mer
tioned. He said that at Spartanbur
and Greenville, whare local companie
were organized about rive years t
supply service at lower rates, the sulb
e scribers to both systems, had practical
- ly unanimously signed petitions to th
t Bell Company requesting the consolida
y tion of the two systems in each plac
r and agreeing to patronize exclusivel:
I that company for five years. The worl
) of consolidation will proceed as fast ai
9 material arrives.

f LEGISLATIVE PROCEED)INGS.
d House Defeats Child Labor.--House Passe:
Dog Bill.-Appropriation and Sup
ply Bills.--Other Matters.
Probably the most important busines:
- transacted by the General Assembl3
- this week was the action of the Hous(
in killing the Compulsory Educatior
- Bills. Mr. Aull's Bill requiring the at
tendance for sixteen weeks of each yew
r of children between the age. of sever
and twelve, came up as a special order
on Friday. After discussion, the Ray
sor Bill, requiring the attendance of
children between the ages of eight
and twelve upon the common schools
for eight weeks of each year, was sub
stituted for the Aull Bill. Messrs.
Aull and Banks, of Newberry took
part in the debate. Mr. Banks op
posed the measure in a forcible and
effective speech, on the ground that
the parent, and not the State, is the
most competent judge of what is best
for the child. Mr. Aull, as reported in
the News and Courier, "made a forci
ble argument in favor of compul
sory education, claiming that the
wealth of the State is in the educated
masses. He took up the matter of the
education of the negro and showed that
this was a useless bugaboo. He show
ed that thirty-three states had com
pulsory education laws and gave figures
to show that since these laws had been
adopted illiteracy had largely decreased.
He took up the matter of a people's pro
ductiveness, showing that it is propor
tionate to intelligence. He was
thoroughly posted on the whole mat
ter." By a vote (: 60 to54 the Bill was
indefinitely postponed, which ends the
matter so far as this session is con
cerned. The roll call was:

EP''OlIT TO INCIthEASE SAI,AIES.
An effort v.,s made in the Sen
ate to get thro.gh a measure to in
crease the salaries of treasurers to
twenty-five per cent. above those of

the principal argument being that sal
aries are high enough already and that
there is no dearth of candidates for the
office.

that stuch a measture was needed in
order to protect tihe people of the State.
The Bill was opplosed by Mersr's. Pyatt
and D)oar, of Georgetown, the point
abouit which the business in shad is at
its height. The advocates of the mecas
ure were greatly in the majority, but
Mr. D)oar securedl the floor andi talked

o Teachers' Mecting.
The rigular monthly meeting of the
teachers of Newberry County was held
d in Boundary str- et graded school build
ing on Saturday. In the absence of
r President E. S. Werts, Mr. Thomas E.
Wicker was chosen president pro tem
s pore.
The meeting was more largely at
I tended than any previous meeting for
the past two years. There were about
a fifty teachers in attendance, showing
by their presence and interest their
desire to aid the cause of education,
and to gain all the information possible
leading to this end.
It was a matter of general regret
that Prof. E. B. Wallace, of Columbia,
who was to have delivered an address,
could not be present. Rev. S. H. Zim
merman, of Central Methodist church
addressed the teachers. His remarks
contained thought that was of practical
benefit to all in his audience, and he
was listened to with close attention and
his address highly appreciated.
Jeter Gets Ball.
Application for bail for J. D. Jeter,
charged with breach of trust, was made
before Judge James Aldrich Saturday
morning. The State was represented
by Hon. D. J. Baker, of Charleston,
lion. F. H. Dominick, acting solicitor,
and Hon. O. L. Schumpert. The de
fendant was represented by Hon. Cole.
L. Blease. Bail was granted in the
sum of $1.000.
It will be remembered that Sheriff
Buford arrested Jeter here on Tuesday
on a warrant sworn out by W. F. Nel
son, of Charleston. It appears from
Nelson's aflidavit that Jeter appro
priated to his own use $500 given him
by Nelson with which to buy cattle.
That having appropriated the money
he left. It seems that he came to New
berry and opened up in business for
himself, running a butcher shop.
