THE TBLEPHONB SITUATION.
Newberry to Have Good Telephone Ser
vice-Long Distanoe:Connection With
Outside World Through the
Bell Company.
The Southern Bell Telephone Cor
pany is evidencing its desire to giv
Newberry a first-class telephone sys
tem, by the active manner in which I
is going over the local system recentl;
purchased from Mr. Floyd, pzeparinl
an estimate, which will show in detai
every item of material necessary t<
mnetallic 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 Com"
pany in operation here by signing a
petition which is being circulated by
Mr. R. D. Smith, which petition, if ac
a cepted by the Bell Company, will be in
4 effect a contract on its part to furnish
first-class service at the rates mentionet
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 slibscrihers here first
class telephone service, to do which
will require the immediate expenditure
o 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 completed and the
new service is noted, I apprehend an
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 goodshape,
so as not to depreciate our local service.
Unlimited service will also be continued
between Newberry and Prosperity.
"The long distance lines will be cut
into the central office just as soon as
practicable aid 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 wvill be
cut into the swvitchboard and any sub
7 scriber can then talk from his residence
or business station without going to a
jfpay station."
In reply to a question as to the result
of the Bell Company having a monopoly,
Mr. Browvn said:
"I can best answer your question by
pking you to note the result in those
towns and cities where it now has and
has alwvays had, what is termed a mo
hopoly. In those p)laces, which are
~numerous, the subscribers are entirely
~atisfied with our service and our rates,
bing willing to profit by the experience
of r.umerous other towns which have
tried the expensive experiment of two
companies. In Rome, Grifrin, Newnan,
Athens, Macon, Columbus, Americus,
Albany, Thiomasville, Ga., in Mont
,omery, Gadsden, Anniston, Troy,
~Opeeka, Ala., Pensacola, Fla., and
bell Company has always had the field
Sxclusively, and notwithstanding the
i1k you hear about the monopolistic
ndencies of this institution it remains
fact that in none of the towvns men
~oned have r ates been made (difl'erent
m rates in other towns andl cities of
milar size. In Columbus, Ga., and
nsacola, Fla., towns in the same class
ith reference to size as Columbia, S.
*, the rates are the same in each - andl
t in the two former the Bell Coin
ny has always had the field exclu
vely, and in Columbia there is a comn
eting comp)any. In Americus, Ga.,
ith the exclusive field, the rates are
e same as at Spartanburg, a towvn of
ilar size, where until recently there
as a competing company. Further, ir
all of the above mentioned towns wher<
the Bell Company has had the exclusiv<
field, the plants have all been periodi
cally rebuilt, in order to keep up the ser
vice. Talk is cheap, but it takes fact
to back it up -not idlle predictions.
'"The Southern Bell Company pro~
poses5 to give good service, at rate
wvhich they know, (not think) are en
tirely reasonable - and the complete an'
absolute financial failure of so many in
dependent companies who try to do10
for less, only substantiates our statt
ments that first-class service cannot b
furnished for less, except at a loss c
money, andl while the Southern He
Company is anxious to furnish the ver'
best class of service it is not willingt
(10 so for rates which its long experient
has taught it would mean a loss<
money.
As to the petition, Mr. Brown sa
that his company appreciated such ev
patrons, and upon the presentation of
this petition to his company, the same
- would be officially acknowledged and
accepted under the terms therein men
tioned. He said that at Spartanburg
and Greenville, wh3re local companies
were organized about five years to
- supply service at lower rates, the sub
a scribers to both systems, had practical
- ly unanimously signed petitions to the
t Bell Company requesting the consolida
r tion of the two systems in each place
r and agreeing to patronize exclusively
I that company for five years. The work
of consolidation will proceed as fast as
3 material arrives.

LEGISLATIVE PROCI3DINGS.
House Defeats Child Labor.-House Passes
Dog Bill.-Appropriation and Sup
ply Bills.-Other Matters.
Probably the most important business
transacted by the General Assembly
this week was the action of the House
in killing the Compulsory Education
Bills. Mr. Aull's Bill requiring the at
tendance for sixteen weeks of each year
of children between the ages of seven
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 jrdge 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 thc
wealth of the State is in the educated
masses. le took up the matter of the
education of the negro and showed that
this was a useless bugaboo. le show
ed that thirty-three states had com
pulsory education laws and gave figures
to show that since these laws had been
idopted illiteracy had largely decreased.
tie took up the matter of a people's pro
iuctiveness, showing that it is propor
;ionate to intelligence. He was
;horoughly posi ed on the whole mat
,er." By a vote of 60 to 54 the Bill was
ndefinitely postponed, which ends the
natter so far as this session is con
:erned. The roll call was:

APPROPRIATION AND SUPPL,Y nilLs.
The House has passed the Appropria
ion Bill and it has gone to the Senate.
'he Suppy Bill was taken up and the
tate levy fixed at five mills, the same
s heretofore. The Newberry County
evy was fixed as~ follows: C'onstitu
ional school tax, 3 mills; ordinay
ounty tax, 2 1-2 mills; sinking fund
ote, 1-2 mill. This is to provide for
lie interest and p)rincip)al of $10,000
vhiich the county sup)ervisor is author
z,ed to borrowv from the State Sinking
~'und in ord(er to pa~y past indeb)tedness

Llppropriation not to become available
mntil the ten thousand dlollars in volun

harge of the matter, is p)rovided for.
i:x'rl(EMiE GAME LAW.
The H-ouse has panssed Mr. Mor
tan's LGame Bill, putting the bur11
len of p)roof upon the man having game
n his p)ossessionl. The Bill p)rovides:
Section 431. It shall not be lawful
or any pecrson, except upon his own
ands, or upon the lands of another with
he consent of the owner thereof, to

Mr. Morgan's lHill reqjuiring estates
to paiy baick taxes was killed.
'The Hill requiringr outsidle staan
laundries doing business in the State to
take out a license was also killed.
JURISD)ICTFION OV;lR TI-HL- 'IIONL"Ss.
The Senate has indefinitely postponed
Senator Hydrick's Bill to give the rail
road commissioners jurisdiction over
telephone companies. The Bill contain
ed a section requiring all telephe(.e
systems in a place to connect, and was
opposed on the grounds that. it would
hurt the local systems and tend to give
the Bell Company a monopoly of the
telephone business in South Carolina.
DOG HILL I'ASSD.
The Ilouse has passed a Dog Bill.
The Bill, as usual, created a good deal
of discussion, and was vigorously op
posed. But the enemies of the canine
species seem at last to have got in the
majority. The Bill provides:
Section 1. That there shall be im
posed and assessed on all dogs in this
State a capitation tax of fifty cents an
nually on each dog, the proceeds of
which tax shall be expended for school
purposes in the several counties in which
it is collected.
Section 2. That dogs shall be return
ed at the same time that other proper
ty is returned for taxation.
Section 3. That the capitation tax on
dogs provided for in this Act shall be
collected at the same lne and in the
same manner that other taxes are now
collected.
Section 4. That;the capitation tax pro
vided for in this Act shall be and con
stitute a first lien in favor of the State
of South Carolirt on all the property
owned by any person who owes any
such capitation tax.
Section 5. That the collection of the
capitation tax provided for in this Act
may he enforced ag;ainst any property
owned by the debtor of such tax in the
same manner as if it were a tax assess
e( on that specific piece of property.
Section 6. That no (log which is not
returned for taxation as provided in
this Act should he held to he property
in any of the Courts of t.his State.
I''FFORT TO INCRIEASE SA.A1ltIIls.
An effort was made in the Sen
ate to get through a measure to in
crease the salaries of treasurers to
twenty-five per cent. above those of
alitors. The measure was defeated,
the principal argument being that. sal
aries are high enough already and that
there is no learth of candidates for the
oflice.
SAMP1'I.IN( FlIIIIZIRIts.
Mr. 'l'atum's Hill providing for the
test ing of fert.ilizers, has been passed
by the 1louse. The Bill provides that
any citizen of the State who shall putr
chase any commercial fertilizers or
manures shall have the right to have
same analyzed by Clelmson College, by
taking a sample of [such fertilizers in
the presence of at. least two (isinter
ested witness, one of whoml shall be
chosen by the dealer and one by the
purchaser.
The Ilouse has also passed Mr. Good
win's Bill lrohibit ing he importation
into this State of stock with conta
gious dliseases, excepit distemper.
One of the prettiest fights seen on
the floor of the H-ouse took place on a
Bill prohibiting p)ersons from shipping
shad outside the State. It was
claimed b)y the adlvoentes of' the Bill
that such a measure was neededI in
order to parotect the people of the State.
The Bill wvas opposed by Mersrs. Pyatt
and D)oar, of Georgetown, the point
about which the business in shad is at
its height. The advocates of the mecas
ture were greatly in the majority, but
Mr. Doar secured the floor and talked
for several hours in ordler to postpone
the me'asure for the day, after wvhich
it would not likely go through. Mr.
D)oar, however, was forced to stop) on
account of having to catch a traini, and
the Bill went through.
TitUtTESi:s AN) 5CHtOI,AltSilli'S.
A Bill has p)assed the IHouse making
trustees of schools conservators of the
peace andi vesting them with the au
thority of constables.
Also a Bill providing that any person

the State shall furnish a certificate
from the County Atuditor to the effect
that the p)arents or guiardians of saidl
appllicatnts are too poor to p)rovidle an
edtucation, andl that no pers;on shall be
allowed to apply f'or any scholarship

Teachers' Meeting.
The regular monthly meeting of the
teachers of Newberry County was held
in Boundary street graded school build
ing on Saturday. In the absence of
President E. S. Werts, Mr. Thomas E.
Wicker was chosen president pro ten
pore.
The meeting was more largely at
tended than any previous meeting for
the past two years. There were about
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
,ained thought that was of practical
be.-.efit to all in his audience, and he
was listened to with close attention and
his address highly appreciated.
Jeter Gets Bail.
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 Ion. D. J. Baker, of Charleston,
lion. F. H. Dominick, acting solicitor,
and Ion. 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.
T'hat having appropriated the money
he left. It seems that he cane to New
berry and opened up in business for
himself, running a butcher shop.
