The Mayor Took a Hand in the Game-Sev
eral Sinners Before the Mayor
On Friday afternoon, near the water
tank on the C.N. & L. road, a little
this side of the Mollohon mill, a crowd
composed of five negroes and onp white
man, became interested in a game of
chance. Two of them, John Brown,
the tailor, and Milt Smith, both colored,
pleaded guilty before Mayor Earhardt
yesterday. morning and were given each
$10.00 or thirty days. Both paid im
mediately. It was brought out in the
testimony that there were only 2 of the
other four engaged in the game, George
Eichelberger and Tobe Brown, colored,
being onlookers. Of the other two,
Wm. Maybin, colored, had skipped, and
the charge remains against him. Lewis
- Sample, white, failed to appear, and
forfeited his l )nd of $5.00.
Charlie Aiken, colored, was given
$2.00 or eight days for reckless driving
on the streets. One day last week he
drove Mr. C. G. Blease's little pony at
break-neck speed from the Methodist
church to Gilder & Weeks' corner.
Ernest Ruff, colored, a drunk and
disorderly was given $3.00 or fifteen
days, and another drunk and disorderly
$2.0' or eight days.
JETER GAVE BOND.
$?50 Was Put Up for His Appearance at
Next Court and He Is Now
Out of Jail.
W. B. Jeter, held on the charge of
breach of trust, was releeged on bond
yesterday. The bond, it will be re
membered, wes reduced from $1,000,
the amount at which it was placed by
Judge James Aldrich, to $750. This
was done on a motion made by defend
ant's counsel, Cole. L. Blease, before
Judge R. C. Watts, in Charleston, on
on the 24th of February, at which time
the case was renm'nded from Charles
ton to Newberry for trial.
Mr. Jeter's bond wvas signed by sev
eral of his friends in this city, who say
that Mr. Jeter is innocent of any crime,
that while he got the $500 it is alleged
* he took, that there are other circum
*stances which make the transaction a
legitimate one. Mr. Jeter himself,
* hen seen yesterday afternoon, said
that he 'is ready and anxious andi wait
ing for trial.
The arrest of Mr. Jeter several weeks
ago in this city created a great deal of
interest. At the time of the arrest
Jeter was in partnership with Mr. Mc
Whirter on lower Main street, conduct
' ing a general butcher business under
S the firm name of Jeter & McWhirter.
The trial of the case here at the next
'~.term of court will be looked forward to
with considerable interest.
At the Opera House.
The "Star Boarder'' will be present
> ed at the opera house tomorrow night.
The management promises the entire
original ct'st. There are many high
class srecialties, which are introducedi
2'throughout the play, and there is not
one dull moment-it is a scream from
% the start to the finish. There is a
laugh .every minute and the minutes
come every sixty seconds. There will
be but one performance in Newberry,
~'that at the opera house tomorrow night.
.~+ The Greenville News has the follow
1~ring to say of a recent perfor.nance giv
Sen by this company in Greenville:
~KThe star boarders of Greenville's
many boarding houses were out en
masse last night-that is, they were
out of their t.>arding houses to be in
the Grand opera house, where a noisy
listless, rodiring Star Boarder was creat
ing a heap of foolish disturbance in
three dishes: I 3akfast, dinner and sup
per, Charles H. Boyle, for such was
the star's name, had no difficulty in
making the audience laugh. They gig
gled, smiled and roared, not so much
by reason of the charm of the dishes,
or on account of the fascinating way
they were served, but simply because
things were kept mov ing and between
a lively band, a few catchy choruses,
and the star's absurd antics, the au
dience was made to forge~t themselves
and just enjoy the mess served. T1he
upper floors of the theater were jam
med, and the attendance was above the

lived near Smyrna church. I think he.
was of German stock. He was an offi

long number of years. Mr. Senn owned
a small farm and a public shop at his
place. He did a general repair work,
as well as doing some new work. He
made the best grain cradles and plow
stocks known in his day. His educa

fine sense, truthful and honest in all his
dealings with his fellow man. His first
wife was Dolly Cleland, a sisterof C. S.
