HAND CUT OFF
Serious Accident Suffered by Herbert Cooa
at Shops of Carolina Manufactur
ing Company.
Herbert Cook suffered a serious acci
\dent while engaged in running the large
Jiaper at the shops of the Carolina
Manufacturing Company early Wednes
day afternoon. He was feeding an end
for a coffin into the shaper when in
some way his left hand slipped and was
so badly cut by the machine that it was
,'necessary to have it amputated. The
operation was very successfully per
formed Drs. W. G. Houseal, J. M.
Kibler and T. M. Smith.
The shaper is one of the most dan
gerous machines to handle in machine
shops of any kind. There are two in
use by the Carolina Manufacturing
Company and Mr. Cook was running
the large one. He said afterwards
that he did not know how the accident
happened, that his hand slipped and
went into the machine, and that it felt
"like a hammer had struck it," and
that he pulled it out and looked at it
-"and it was all torn to pieces. He was
- taken home immediately, and the opera
tion was performed.
Mr. Cook is a young man of about
eighteen years of age, the son of Mrs.
C. M. Cook. He has been with the
Carolina Manufacturing Company for
some time, and by faithful attention to
his work had made himself valuable to
his empoloyers and was steading rising.
The accident, in many respects, is a
very sad one.

DOG WAS NOT MAD
Mad Stone Test Applied To Miss Lula
Werts, Who Was Bitten On Sat
urday Afternoon.
Miss Lula Werts, who was bitten by
a bull dog the property of Mr. Oscar
LeRoy, on last Saturday afternoon,
accompanied by her brother, County
Superintendent of Education E. S.
Werts, went to Charlotte this week to
have the mad stone applied to the
wound. Superintendent Werts and his
sister returned yesterday morning.
The stone was appliod but failed to
adhere, and the physician, Dr. Donna
hue, gave as his opinion that the dog
was not mad, and that the wound, which
had almost healed, would not have any
serious results.
Miss Werts was bitten on Saturday
afternoon~ while in Mr. LeRoy's yard.
The dog up until that time had been
very companionable, and was not
thought to be at all dangerous. Later
in the afternoon Mr. LeRoy was him
self bitten while attempting to fasten
the dog and the dog, which was thought
to be mad, was immediately ~.illed.
Miss Werts and her brother went to
Charlotte on Tuesday morning, with
the result stated.

GOOD ROADS ASSOCIATION.
Organization Perfected-Township Associ
ations Provided For--Resolu
tions Adopted.
A Good Roads Association for New
berry County was organized in the
Court House on Tuesday morning. The
convention which resolved itself into
the Association was held in obedience
to a call issued by Supervisor Jno. M.
Schumpert recently, and was attended
by a number of representative citizens
from different sections of the county.
There was a great deal of discussion,
but all were agreed that some action is
necessary for the improvement of the
public highways, and the only question
is as to the manner of doing the work.
While nothing of very great importance
was done at the meeting on Tuesday,
the people have been brought together
and their efforts for good roads will
hereafter be organized and directed.
The organization of Township Associa
tions was provided for, one Vice-Presi
dent of the County Association being
elected for each township, and it being
made the duty of the various Vice
Presidents to organize Good Roads As
sociations in their respective townships.
Thus will the whole county be organ
ized into a body working for improved
roads.
The meeting on Tuesday morning was
called to order by Hon. Cole. L. Blease.
Supervisor Jno. M. Schumpert was
made temporary chairman and Jno. K.
Aull temporary secretary. Supervisor
Schumpert in a few words thanked the
Convention and stated the object of the
meeting-to organize a County Good
Itoads Association, and then, if thought
necessary, to organize in the various
townships.
The motion to organize the Associa
tion was put and unanimously carried,
and the following committee, one from
each township represented, was chosen
by the representatives of the various
townships to draft a suitable constitu
tion: Township No. 1, E. H. Aull; No.
2, W. C. Brown; No. 6, W. A. Hill;
No. 8, I. P. Cannon; No. 9, W. T. Gib

It follows:

Sec. 6. The oflicers as providled in
this Constitution shall be0 elected at this
meeting nnl nnnually therafter bm. i.
majority vote of the members present.
Sec. 7. Representation from three
fourths of the townships in this Asso
ciation shall constitute a quorum.
The following officers were elected:
President - Jno. M. Schumpert.
Vice-Presidents- -Township No. 1,
J. H. Chappell; No. 2, W. C. Brown;
No. 3, J. H. Smith; No. 1, jt. C. Car
lisle; No. 5, W. C. Sligh; No. 6, Ver
non C. Wilson; No. 7, Jno. R. Scurry;
No. 8, I. P. Cannon; No. 9, R. T. C.
Hunter; No. 10, T. J. Wilson; No. 11,
Jno. F. Banks.
Secretary and Treasurer-Jno. K.
Aull.
The Constitution as adopted is the
exact original report of the committee,
except in one particular. The report
of the committee made a quorum neces
sary to transact business twenty-five
members. There was a prolonged dis
cussion on this section. The discussion,
however, did not adhere closely to the
point at issue, and a number of gentle
men made excellent addresses on the
value of good roads and the purpose of
the Association and the good it may ac
complish if properly conducted.
Immediately after the report of the
committee was submitted lion. F. H1.
Dominick moved its adoption.
Mr. R. T. C. Hunter moved to amend
so that fifteen constitute a quorum.
Mr. W. A. Hill thought fifteen too
small a number to represent Newberry
County in a Good Roads Association.
Two from each township would be a
small enough number for a quorum.
To have any influence the sentiment of
the county must be expressed, and that
cannot be done by fift en men. New
berry has lived in miud long enough to
recognize the importance of this move
and he did not believe the interest of
the people would soon (lie out.
Mr. Hunter spoke in favor of his
amendmcnt. If as many as twenty
four men, and no more, come to a meet
ing several times and can do nothing
for lack of a quorum, the movement
will soon be (lead.
Mr. Hill said this Association will
shape legislation and should not act
with less than twenty-five members.
Mr. Blease said the Association could
not legislate, but could only suggest.
lie had seen meetings in this very roon
of far more importance than what
coulk be done here, of no more impor
tance, however, than the question to
be agitated here, of more itportance
because it, had more power, which could
do nothing for lack of a quorum. 'l'lrce
townships were not rep resented now,
and in one of these, No. 1, it had taken
a man yesterday two hours and a half
to drive ten miles. lie favored making
the quorum fifteen.
The discussion was carried on by
members, pro an-1 con, and ti e ques
tion of instructing repre:centat ives oi
the question was 1brought up).
Mr. F. 11. )ominiek thought the
whole matter of qu(i.rum a :y small
one, but the discussion had already
brought in that eternal bugaho, poli
tics, forcing Representatives ini Hie Leg
islature to take a certain course ofI ac tion.
Newberry is the banner county of the
State, andl she has as ma ~ny had roads as
any county' in the State, andI if she can't
get twenty-five meni to come out to
suggest imp)rove'ment s in the roads, she
doesn't want a Rump P'arliamen t of
fifteen men to represent t wo thlousand
voters. If our roads are in the condi
tion they say they are, and which the
speaker said he knew they are they
certainly ought to interest t wenty-five
men sufficiently to cause them to conme
to the court house occasionally and
make their wants known.
Mr. E. H. Aull said the whole ques
tion hinged on wvhether it would be
better for the movement. to fail to have
a meeting with only twent y- four menm
bers, or to have a meeting with only
fifteen nmmbers. lHe agreedl with Mr.
Hunter on the number fifteen. So
far as the Representatives are. con
cerned, every Newberry Rep)resent a
tive is in favor of goodl roadls. 'What
wve wvant is to get a sentiment b)ehind(
the Legislature wvhich wvill make it take
action towards securing good roads.
Mr. F. W. Hliggins spoke in favor of'
fifteen as a (quorumn.
Mr. J. L. Keitt moved that the Con
vention be composed of delegates from
the Township A ssociations, representa
tioni from three-fourths of' the town
ships to constitute a quIorum.
Mr. F. H-. Dominick opposed this.
Every man her'e has as much right in
the County Good t'oadls Association as
any (delegate from a Towvnship Associa
tion.
Mr. C. L. lHlease in a strong speech
saidl he wvas surprised at the course the
ar'gument hadl taken, and( at some( of
the references which been made. When
a man goes to the Legislatur'e as a Recp
resentative of Newberry C ounrty, and
sits there and waits for his el)(let to
dictate his ('ouriSe of aiction, he~ is uin
worthy his seat. Whet her lit Ie ini the
Senate or ini the Il(ouse', it is his diit y
to vote as he thinuks right and for t thle
best inltiests of his teople, not moat t er
what or how miany curise's nmy V: show
eredl upon0 his headl. When theit people
go to the ballot box andi vot e on1 a cer
tain mneasur'e, it is thc dutty of It' Repl
i'sentative to ob'r I heir voice; lbut
unless they dIt go to tie bll!ot box and
exprtess their' sentiimnt lhe mutlst uise
his own .jud(gmnent. It is all n ionsensee
to t,alkl abou,it t his conivenit i,tn shapinig
legislation. On ot' t hlit ht.I irod bll s
ever introduced in I h I tgi-i re was
by a Newberry mnt, a.d at itbody 's
sonmethinig, to at tempt to do somthtling.
Who is i'esptonsilt ftor th had rtods?
So long as thlie law aillows a muan to pay
$1.00 for himtselt' andt negroes, ini lieu
of r'oatd work, so long will we never
have good r'oadls. Somodtty has got t o
w,or'k thet rtnmls lIhe 'avo,c! CXtj,
Keitt's Aesolution. No township should
be allowed to dictate in this Associa
tion, and as the section stood No. 1
could control the Association.
Mr. Aull opposed Mr. Keitt's amend
ment, and moved as a substitute for
the whole matter the section which was
finally adopted and which is r ection 7
of the Constitution above.
Mr. J. II. Chappell said an hour and
a half had been spent and nothing (lone
but discuss politics. We have come to
express ourselves with reference to
good roads. A man without an opinion
is worse than no man at all, and a m'n
who is afraid to express his opinion is
worse yet. What we ought to do is to
say how much we are willing to be
taxed for good roads. I now pay $20.00
and am willing to pay $40.00. That is
my speech.
WANT GOOD ROADS.
Mr. Blease offered the following
resolution, which was adopted:
"Resolved, That it is the sense of
this meeting that the Commissioners of
Newberry County build good roads for
this county and that they take such
steps as in their judgment are neces
sary to make such improvements at the
earliest possible day."
Mr. P. C. Smith thought it would be
advisable to have it stated where the
Association thought best work should
begin and how conducted.
lion. Arthur Kibler said that a good
deal had been said about Representa
tives and their duties and the thought
it would be well for the Association at.
its next session to express its sentiment.
lie thought if a majority of the people
are in favor of taxation, whether by
bonding or otherwise, their Represen
tatives would be willing to do what was
want.ed. This is the groat question
now before the people and the delega
tion from this county and every other
county would like to know what the
people want them to do, and I for one
am willing to do what I think is best
for the people, and would like to have
an expression from them.
It was moved and carried that the
committee appointed to draft constitu
tion bring subjects for discission at
the next meeting.
The Association then adjourned.
srTU.ilc Ts FOR NEXT AIEHTIN .
