SCHUMPBIRT CASB DECIDED.
Supreme Court Affirms Judgment Below
In Case of J. C. Schumpert vs.
Southern, Verdict for $10,000.
The State Supreme Couit this week
handed down an opinion affirming the
judgment of the lower court in the
case of James C. Schumpert, respon
dent, vs. the Southern Railway Com
pany and John Hutchison, appellants.
The case was carried from this county,
where at the March term of the court
last year Mr. Schumpert, who lives
near Prosperity, was awarded a verdict
This decision by the supreme court
means a great deal in future litigation
against railroad companies in this
State, and especially against the
Southern Railway Company, in that it
has established that where an employe
a resident of this State is sued in con
nection with the defendant railway
company, the suit can not be carried
into the federal courts, although the
amount suied for m y be over $2,000.
This was an actidh brought for $50.
000 damages on account of personal in
juries sustained by Mr. Schumpert as an
engineer of the Southern Railway Con
pany in a collision at Belton, S. C., on
February 18, 1901. He sued the company
on the 3d day of J,une,1901, and in his con
plaint he joined as a party defendant
John liutchison, who was the engineer
on the Anderson Branch train, with
which Mr. Schumpert collided. The
case was tried before Judge Eirnest
Gary at the March term of the court,
1902, and a verdict for $12,500 was
rendered, which was cut down by the
Judge to $10,000. An appeal was taken
thereafter to the supreme court and
was heard at the November term, 1903.
The court filed its opinion on the 16th
(lay of March, 1903, affliming the
judgment below, which wins the case
for Mr. Schumpei i. Mr. Schumpert
was represented by Messrs Johnstone
&'iWelch. So much for the facts of
In the case is involved a question of
precedure which is of very far reach
ing conseqiuence in railway litigation
against, the Southern Railway Company
especially, in that the Southern Rail
way Company, being a corporation of the
State of Virginia, it. has heretofore al
ways exercised the right which it is
g ven under the Act of ongress to re
move any suit against it from the State
court to the federal com t in case the
amount in controversy is over $2,000.
The Constitution of 1895 undertook to
domesticate foreigo corporations doing
business in this State for the purpose
of forcing them to submit to the State's
jurisdiction in all litigations affectin'r
them, and for other purposes as well.
In 189t the Legislature passed an Act
Carrying out the spirit of the Constitu
tion wherein it was attempted to do
mesticate all foreign railroad corpor
ations doing business in this State.
The Southern Railway Company under
this Act. took out a domestic charter.
Thereafter it was suedl in the State
court is the case of Mathis vs. the
Souuihern Railway Company, and as t'he
amount in contr.oversy was over $2,000,
iendeavored to remove its cont".versy
tthe federal 'oiurmts." The: supreme
court is that case sustained the consti
tutioniality of the Act of 183 and held
that the Southern Rtailway was not en
titledl to remove its cause to th1e federail
courts. Tlherea ft.er the supreme ('ourt
of the State in the cas;e of Calvert vs.
the Southmen i Railway and Wilson vs.
the Sou thern Railway Company r'e
versedl its deocision in Mat.his vs. Sout.h
ern andl held that the Act of 1896i was
unconst.itutional. But as the comn t in
the laost twvo cases w~s dlividled equially
the court en bane was calledl up)on to
dc ide whether or not the Act of 1896
wa.s constitutionial. It was decided that
the Act of' 1896 was unconstitutional.
T his left the Southern Railway Comn
pany ini a position still to r'emove its
cases to the federal courts.
In this case, the Schmumpert case, t.he
Lrailwayi company and( one of its servants
are joinedl parties de fendant, the comn
p1aint charging that they jointly causedl
the inj uryv to Mir. Schumipert. It was
c ontendled throughout the case that
whereaos Mri. Hiutchison was a resident
-,of the State and the Southern Itaih;vay
SCompany a resident o f Virginia, that the
*South ern Rai lway Comnpa ny would have
submit to the jurisdliction of the State
courits if their act in causing the dam
age to Mr. Schiumpert, was a joint act
of both. Thlis proposition wasm stenui
ously resisted by the railway comp~aniy
andl wa s fought hard all along the line.
It has been carriedl before .Judlge Simon
ton in Charleston in the case of Riser vs.
the Southern Railway Company, a case
also from Newberry county and in
wvhich Mr. Riser is rep)resenitedl by
Messes. Johnstone & Welch, wherein
Judi(ge Simonton held that I he act, of
a servant in causing the injury like the
one in this case amount.ed in law
to a joint act, of himself and his emi
p)loyer, the railroad company, and( that
this being true, the railroad c'oimpjany
had no right to remove its controversy
into the fedleral court., and he, there
fore, remanded the case to the State
This thereafteri blocks this railway
company from going ito the federal
courits through .Judoge Simoniton's court,
and1( as the siupre'me courit of this St.att
ini the Schumpert decision just filed,
sust.ains the coirectness of t.he joindei',
there is nothing left for the railway
company to (do buit to submifit its cases
to the jurisdiction of the State court.
This is but another one of a long list
of victories gained in eases of this
charactor by Messi's. Johnstone &

Not Affected by Legal Holiday.
The Setzler Company, of Pomaria,
recently wrote to the Secretary of
State, stating that they had been in
formed by a lawyer that the charter
under whicn the company is doing busi
ness wais valueless because grantedl on
a legal holiday (January 1), and asking
for adlvice upon this point. The letter
was i.eferred to Assistant Attorney
General W. H. Townsend, wvho advised
that the Supreme Court hadl several
years ago filed the following dlecision in
a case in wvhich this question had been
raisedl: "'It may be that a public oflicer
would be justifiedl in dleclining to per
for~m any act p)ertaining to the dluties
of his office or even open his oflice on a
legal holiday; but if he consents to (do
so, we are unable t.o see anything in the
common oir statute law wvhich forbids
him to do so, 0or renders his act void.''
UJndler this decision of the Supreme
Court, it will be seen that the fact that.
the charter of the Setzler Company, or
any other charter or' (documnent by a
p)ublic oflicial, was issuedl on a legal
holiday, (does not in any wvay affect its

FOR A UNION DEPOT.
Petition Being Circulated Asking Rallroa
Officials to Build a Union Depot
The very inconvenient railroad accom
modations at the depots in Newberr;
have long been a matter of comment
The Southern has recently erected ,
first-class depot for the use and con
venience of its patrons, but it is so situ
ated that it is of times very inconvenien
to reach it from the city, both on ac
count of the great number of shiftinj
trains on the Columbia, Newberry an<
Laurens road at the time of arrival an,
departure of the Southern's passenge
trains, and on account of the fact tha
it is next to impossible to keep the ron
between the two depots in good condi
''he two depots are very near eacl
other, and it would be a small expens
to the railroads to unite and build
union depot, and it would be but in lin
with the city's grcwth and advance
ment in the past few years. With thi
fact in mind, the following petition, ad
dressed to Mr. W. G. Childs, Presiden
of the C., N. & L. road, and to Mr. P
I. W ells, General Superintendent o:
this division of the Southern, is beint
circulated and vary generally signed b
the town and county officials, and th
business men of Newberry:
"We, the undersigned citizens o
Newberry, S. C., respectfully call you
ittention to the growing business am
increase of manufacturing and othe
interests of our city; and feeling th<
need of better and more convenient ar
rangements for the traveling public
ask that the two railroads passinl
through our city, arrange and build o
Union Depot, which will be in keeping
with the advance of our city, and sue]
as is being built in cities of similar siz<
in other parts of the State."

A FIREMEN'S TOURNAMENT.
d Lxcelsiors Are Working For a fournament
And Ask the Help of Citizens
At a meeting of the Excelsior Fire
y Company, held on Wednesday night, it
was decided to take steps for the hold
a ing of a firemen's tournament in New
- berry some time during the month of
- June, and to ask the financial aid of
t, citizens in this undertaking.
- A committee consisting of Messrs.
g I. H. Hunt, F. 11. Dominick, and 1). F.
: Pifer was appointed to solicit contribu
d tions. It is estimated that $1,000 will
r be required in order to otfer a good
t prize list and to cover incidentnl ex
d penses. The list of prizes which it is
desired to offer is: IIose wagon cace,
first prize $200, second prize $100; hand
h reel race, first prize, $150, second prize
$75; grab race, first prize $75, second
a prize $40; four men's contest, first prize
e $50, second prize $25. Making a total
- prize list of $715 With these prizes as
s inducements, there would be no trouble
- in entering competing companies from
t all over the State and from other States,
. and the tournament woild be a success.
f In order to show to the people of
Newberry that they are in earnest the
firemen on Wednesday night, immedi
e ately after it was decided to ask for
contributions, headed the list with an
f individual contribution of $50. Forty
r men giving half as much would insure
r Newberry'; volunteer fire fighters
a have ever ';uen ready to expose them
- selves and to risk their lives, if neces
sary, in their work, and they have saved
thousands and thousands of dollars of
i property in this city. In no better way
can the people show their appreciation
l than by responding liberally to their re
a quest for a tournament. And, besides,
the tournament would be of more value
to Newberry than its cost. This was
shown in the tournament held in New
berry some time ago.
At the Opera House.
The return of the Payton Sisters to
the opera house next week promises to
- be one of the biggest. successes in the
- history of the house. This company is
t well and favorably known by theatre
goers here, and from every city where
f it has appeared since it left Newherry
last month comes the highest praise of
. its clever work. The repertoire of
pieces is not of the old worn out class,
the plays that are generally produced
e by popular priced companies, but are
all high class standard plays, which are
well staged with special scenery, and
_ dressed in an elaborate and artistic
manner. The opening bill will be, "For
Her Child's Sake."
The Selma, Ala., Times, says: "The
Payton Sisters have the best popular
priced company that has ever appeared
here. The Pay tons were very clever,
far above the average of many dollar
attractions. The specialties, which
were many, were all good and ip-to
date, andl kept the house in a pleasant
mood throughout, the entire perform

There has been a good (deal of talk of
late about the condition of the roads
between here and Saluda, and kicks too
numerous to mention have been regis
teredl about the mud. I f t here is any
mud left on the Saluda road there was
certainly enough to give grounds for
kicking be fore these gentlemen startedl.
hi In fact, wvhen they reached Newberry
,in the wee small hours of the morning
a Thursday they ap)pear'ed v'ery much
k like four mud b)anks hauled to town.

THE WILLARD MEMORIAL.
A Large Audience Attended The Interest

Church Tuesday Night.
'l'ih Francis E. Willard Memorial ser
vice, which was bel in Central M. E.
(Church, under the auspices of the
ladies of the W. C. "'. U., on Tuesday
evening, was very largely attended.
The intersting pwogramn which had been
arranged was well carried out, and the
occasion was pleasant and profitable.
The exercises were opened with
prayer by Rev. Geo. A. Wright, of the
Haptist church. A vocal duet, "Sweet
Will of God," was rendered by Mrs.
''hos. Epting and Miss Waldrop, fol

John Paysinger; vocal solo by Mrs. .1.
M. Bull; recitations, "If I were a
Man, by Master James Smith, and "If
I were a Grown Lady." by Miss Anna
Cavenaugh. The vocal solo by Miss
Etta Shelly dleserves especial mention,
her full, rich voice filling tIle large anld
crowded( auditoruml. Miss Adele D)un
bar gave an ilteresting templerance
ilack boardl lesson.
Tlhe addlress of the occasion was
dlelivered biy llev. S. HI. Zimmlnermanl.
Rev. Mr. Zimmerman paid a beautiful
tribiute to tile life, character, and
services of Miss Willard. He said tihe
first and onIly time he ever hleard
her was in D)r. Carlisle's recita

oil accounit of the wvoman who said it.
Tile spleaker saidl that Miss Willard
hiad b)en called a prohitionlist. She
was more than a prohibitionist. Prohii
