Ordered Back to Newberry County.-Bail
Reduced from $1,000 to $'50.
On a motion made by Cole L. Blease,
Esq., before Judge R. C. Watts, in
Charleston on Tuesday, the case of W.
B. Jeter, charged with breach of trust.
was ordered transferred from the
County of Charleston to the County of
Newberry, and the amount of Jeter's
bail reduced from $1,000 to $750.
The case is familiar to the readers of
The Herald and News. Jeter was in
the employ of W. L. Nelson, of Charles-.
ton, and was engaged in the business
of buying and selling cattle. He is
charged with having appropriated'the
sum of $500 advanced by his employer,
Nelson, to be used in his traffic in cat
The motion for a tranfer of the case
was made by Mr. Blease on the ground
that the alleged crime was committed
in this county, and not in Charleston.
It seems that Jeter was in Newberry
about three weeks past, and drew on
Nelson through the National Bank here
for the $500. The bank at first re
fused to cash his draft, but finally did
so upon a receipt of a telegam from
Nelson himself saying that the draft
would be honored when it reached
Charleston. It was argued by Mr.
Blease that inasmuch as Jeter was in
Newberry when he secured the money,
the crime, if crime there be, was com
mitted in Newberry. Jeter while in
Newberry entered into partnership
with McWhirter under the firm name of
McWhirter & Jeter, doing a general
butcher business on lower Main street.
He was arrested here by the Sheriff
of Charleston on a warrant sworn out by
Nelson. He applied to Judge James
Aldrich for bail, which was granted in
the sum of $1,000. Failing to give
bond on last Saturday he was carried
to Charleston by Deputy Knox.
The following is the order of Judge
R. C. Watts, concurred in by Solicitor
Hildebrand, tranferring the case to
Newberry, and reducing the amount of
bail from $1,000 to T50.
On the motion before Judge Watts
the State was represented by Solicitor
Hildebrand and Legare and Holman,
and the defense by lon. Cole L. Blease.
The order follows:
South Carolina, Charleston County.
-In General Sessions. -- State vs. W. B.
Jeter, Defendant, Breach of Trust.

in the above stated case was committed

It is ordered that this case be trans
ferred to the County of Newberry for
trial, and that the defendant be con
veyed by the Sheriff of Charleston into

Thriving Little Town of Peak Reduced to
Ashes Yesterday Morning-Spark
From Engine the Cause.
The thriving little town of Peak. or
the Southern railway about midway be
tween Newberry and Columbia, was al
most totally destroyed by fire early
yesterday morning. In the business
portion of the town only three unoccu
pied buildings are left standing.
It is supposed and generally believed
that the fire was caused by a spark
from one of the Southern's locomotives.
About two o'clock it was discovered in
five bales of cotton on the platform
alongside the railroad. The bales on
fire were hemmed in on one side by
about fifty other bales of cotton and on
the other side by freight cars on the
railroad track. The track at the time
was greatly congested with cars on ac
count of the wreck which had just oc
curred on the Southern at a station a
few miles below towards Columbia.
At the time the fire was discovered,
had it been possible to move the bales
on fire or to secure water the town
would have been saved. Only one
bucket of water was available, how
ever, and two hours later, or at about
four o'clock, the whole business por
tion had been reduced to ashes. The
heaviest losers, probably, were Messa.
S. T. Swygert and Henry Suber.
From the best information obtainable
the following are the losses:
Depot and two box cars belonging to
the Southern railway.
Fifty-three bales of cotton on the
platform at the depot.
Store house and stock of general
merchandise belonging to S. T. Swygert.
Store house of Brooks Swygert, in
which was located the dispensary.
Postoflice building owned by Wm.
White, of Columbia.
Furniture store owned by Henry
General hardware establishment
owned by Henry Suber.
Warehouse belonging to Henry Suber.
Drug store and several buildings torn
down in order to stop the spread of the
Mr. Suber saved a good deal of his
stock or goods. Mr. S. T. Swygert's
stock was entirely destroyed.
The buildings left standing are an
unoccupied store house of W. M. Wil
son, store house of .1. C. Swygert, oc
cupied by Mr. Bundrick, and the city
and masonic hall.

Bishop Smith's Lecture Postponed.
The lecture to be given in the opera
house by Bishop A. Coke Smith, under
the ausp)ices of the ladlies of Centr-al
Mtethodist church, has been postponed
until the evening of Mar-ch 10.
Bishop Smith has been called to
Nashville to attend an impor-tant comn
mittee appointment, and hence the
Mr. 0. M. Jamnieson.
Ther-e is a very gener-ally expressed
regret in Newvbe-r-y that Mr. 0. M.
Jamieson has r-etir-ed from business
here. During his long car-eer as one of
the city's leadling merchants he has
gainedl hosts of friends throughout this
andl adjoining counties, and had built Ut)
for- his business a pat-cnage second to
none. The peop)le had long since lear-nedt
that his goods wvere first-class and that he
wouldI make none but a legitimate
profit. Trhat when he adver-tised a cost
sale, his goods would go at cost.
And here was one secr-et of his suc
cess. Hie knewv the value of printers'
ink and he used his knowvledge to the
best advantage. He adlver-tised, andl
when he adlver-tised his promises wvere
just as binding as if they wer-e inco
porated in a str-ictly legal contract.
Mr. Jamieson wvill leave in the nea
future for a visit t.o relatives in Missis
sippi. He will then r-etur-n to New
His many friends wish him a long
life and a great deal of prosperity in
any business which he may enter.
