Ainged Yesterday He'Bemanded Custo
ary Three Days-Messrs. Schumpert
and Dominick to Defend.
he special term of the court of genera
Ions, called for the purpose of try
the negro rapist, George Strother,
vened yesterday morning. The
me with which Strother is charged,
as committed on the 19th day of Feb
uary upon the person of Miss Emms
owers, who lives with her brother,
Dr. J. L. Bowers, in the lower part of
'the county. It is alleged that on the
ternoon of the day in question Miss
wers was returning home from the
ouse of George Counts her brother-in
law, who lives about one mile distant.
7 That she was accompained by Mr.
' ounts' children the greater part of th
A*ay. Just as the children left her,
letween five and six o'clock in the
:fternoon, she was accosted by the
{;iegro, who asked her for money.
4Words ensued, and Miss Bowers fled
and was caught by the negro, who ac
complished his purpose.
The negro about a week and a half
later was brought to Newberry and
placed in jail. A special term of court
,for his trial was asked by relatives of
Miss Bowers, and was ordered by So
icitor Sease after a personal investiga
Ilion. Hon. G. Duncan Bellinger, of
Barnwell, was appointed special judge.
The court house yesterday morning
was crowded to its capacity. Miss
Bowers, heavily veiled, was brought
? into the court room on the arm of her
brother.
A true bill was returned by the grand
jury, and the negro arrainged and his
plea of not quilty entered. Col. O. L.
Schumpert and Mr. F. H. Dominick
were appointed attorneys, and upon
their demand for the three days allowed
by law in which to prepare the case,
the trial was postponed until 11 o'clock
Thursday.
COURT CONVENED.
The court was called prompt
ly at ten o'clock, Hon. G. Duncan Bel
linger-presiding, andSolicitor Sease and
Stenographer Motte in their places.
The indictment of George Strother,
eharged with rape, was handed the
grand jury.
Judge Bellinger briefly charged the
jury. There were two counts. The
first that Strother, on F'bruary 19th
feloniously made an ,sault upon
Emma Bowers, and then and there did
ravish against her will. The second
that George Strother did assault Emma
'Powers with intent to rape. This is a
special term of court, and .Judge Bel
linger said he was only special judge,
md it was not expected of him that he
should deliver a charge as to the gen
eral duties of the jury. Hle had only to
do with the specific indictments handed
him. If they found a probable case
they would .o indicate by finding a
"True Bill," if nbt, by returning "No
Bill." The definition of rape is wher
ever a man ravishes a woman without
her consent, before or after, he should
be deemed guilty of rape.
"T' ILL" RETURNED).'
TPhe grand jurwy retired and( after re
maining out for~ nearly an hour returned
a ''True Bill."' There being no other
indictments to be acted on the grand
<jury was dismissed.
nIROUGIIT INTO COURT.
Strother was immediately sent for
and wvas p)laced in the dock, lie was
asked if he hiad any attorney and re
plied that he had not. When asked if
he had any p)reference among the at
torneys, he asked for the appointment
of Col 0. L. Schumpert and Col. C. L.
Blease.
Mr. Schumpert said that he was al
ways ready to oblige the court, but he
had been sent for by the defendant se
veral times and he had namedl a fee.
No more was said and the matter had
passed entirely from his mind. lHe
thought he had served his apprentice
Vship and that there wvere younger mem
bers of the bar who could make just as
#able a dlefense.
Jardge Bellinger insisted that Mr.
Schumpert act,, and Mr. Schumpert
~Otsented.
\fr Blease, coming into court, asked
t'e excused also for the reason that
$had been currently reported that he
~dasked to be appointed.
Jdge Bellinger said it gave him
pleasure to state that no such request
had been made to him.
Mr. Blease said he had other and
persotnal reasons and must dlecline and
Mr. lilease was excused.
Mr. F. H..Dominick was appointedl
by the Court, and consented to serve.
Strother was then arraigned. He
hstgned intently to the reading of the
In4ietrnent, and replied "Not Guilty."
Asked if he was ready for trial, he r
that he was not.
r.M Schumport askedl that the trial
bplaced for Thursday, at 11 o'clock
~nd it was so ordered. The p)etit jurors
~ere discharged untill 10.30 o'clock
~hursday morning and court was adl
'ourned untill 1 o'clock the same (lay.

'TWAS A GREAT GAME.
r
In a Hard-Fought And Exciting Contest
In Columbia Carolina Defeats
Newberry 9 to 10.
The State of Sunday had the follow
ing to say of the game it Columbia on
- Saturday afternoon between the New
berry College boys and the team of the
South Carolina College:
A crowd of the most ' enthusiastic
fans witnessed a game of baseball yes
terday at the college park, of a quality
not often seen in Columbia. For nine
long innings Carolina and Newberry
battled for victory in a close-fought
game resplendent with spectacular
plays and exciting moments. The sons
of the historic old university finally
won, but it was not until after their
strength had been tested to' the 'utmost,
by opponents as worthy of victory as
themselves.
"Never saw a better amateur game
in my life, and I've seen some great
teams play," said one man as he left
the park, and his sentiment was echoed
by a hundred others. Hard and fast
from start to finish, the game delighted
those who saw it beyond measure.
During the first inning neither side
was able to score, but when Carolina
came to the bat in the first part of the
second inning a man clad in garnet and
black raced around the bases at inter
vals, finally crossing the home plate
through an error by the boys from the
up-country. Newberry failed to score,
but in the third inning Carolina sent
two more men in.
Things moved along at an even pace
until in the last half of the fourth act
of the drama Coleman came to the bat
for Newberry and laced the ball far out
into right field for three bags. Mer
chant's hit sent Coleman in, but the
batter was sent to the bench. With
Harms and Riser on bases, Fulmer
hammered the leather way out over
Davis' head, and by the time the dust
had cleared away he had advanced to
third. Cabiness next up, went out, but
sent Fulmer in.
Though Carolina again failed to dot
the score book when * she came to bat,
Newberry, by a succession of errors on
the part of her opponents, placed five
runs to her credit on the official log.
The rooters for the home team were
very much distressed, and the view to
them had assumed an ultramarine hue,
while the denizens from the up-country
were riotous in their exhiliration.
In the sixth inning Wilcox followed
Davis' three-bagger with a timely hit
and forced the little leftfielder across
the rubber at a rattling pace.
The local lads worked with a will, but
neither they nor their adversaries were
able to do more than make the game
interesting to the spectators until the
beginning of the eighth inning, when
Carolina took the stick in hand. Davis'
bunt helped Malloy to cross the plate,
the batter reaching first base by beating
the ball and finally scoring. Smith and
3elser made good with their hits, and
Gunter filled the remaining base after
being hit by a pitched ball. With three
men on bases Martin put all his power
into his swing, and his long hit to left
field added three to the score.
The odds were now in Carolina's fa
vor, by this stroke of luck or hard work;
call it what you will. -But, alas, the
boys from "Newberry" managed to tie
the score by one run. The excitement
was intense for the next inning, but
Wilcox, always in at the critical mo
ment, saved the day by careful work.
The visitors were desperate, and it
seemed as if they would score. With
two men out and two on bases, the bat
ter hit to Gilland and his assist to Gun
ter ended the game amid a whirlwind
of cheers and applause.
Both pitchers were in beautiful form,
Gilland striking out 5 men and Simpson
10. Simpson is cool and has great con
trol. Last summer wvhen he played
here with the Newberry team his work
wvas much commented upon. Cabaniss,
wvho caught him, is a faithful wvorker
and an excellent man at the bat.
For Carolina Davis wvas p)erhaps the
star. His work, as usual, wvas far out
of the ordinary. Gunter, Malloy and
Aiken played good ball, and Capt. Smith
was at his best. During the game, ho0w-.
ever, he lost his temper (several times.
Mr. Mattison, the ump)ire, is a new
comer in that cap)acity. His judgment
is, however, excellent, and yesterday
he gave perfect satisfaction.

Dear Sir: Here's what ''wears long
er" means.
D. TV. McGown, Cooperstown, N. Y.,
built a house in '85 and p)aintedl Devoe.
The paint lasted ten years.
A year ar two later, a neighbor built
a house and painted it lead and oil. The
neighbor's house was repainted twice
in the same- time.
This looks as if the neighbor's house
wvas painted three times in eight or
nine years, andl McGown's once in teni
years. We are not qjuite sure-~ we tell
the tale as it comes to us.
SIt is enough to say thamt D)evoe Lead
and 'Zinc lasts twice as long as lead and
oil alone. The reason is: white lead is
soft and chalks off; zinc is hard; and,
when thoroughly ground into the lead,
p)revents its chalkig aind makes it
Smore durable. Yours truly,
F". W. D)evoe & Co.,
New York.

Another Town In The State Which Will
Follow Mayor Earhardt's Lead
In Cleansing.
That the successful efforts of the
present city administration to rid New-.
berry of disorderly places has been
watched with interest throughout the
State is shown by the following letter,
directed to Mayor Earhardt by the
Mayor of a sister town:
"Hon. Mayor Newberry,
"Dear Sir: I saw by either the Co
lumbia or Charleston papers that you
had rid your city of houses of ill-fame.
I am up against the same thing here.
We have had no ordinance on the sub
ject, but one was introduced at our las
meeting, but according to our rules it
takes three readings to pass it. I would
appreciate it very much sif you would
send me a copy of your ordinance on
the subject and also write me fully how
you handled the matter, and if you had
much trouble, and if you have rid your
community of them, both white and
black. I would be glad to reciprocate
at any time, and hope to hear from you
fully early next week. Thanking you
in advance, I remain.'
Mayor Earhardt's success in this mat
ter was made possible by his determina
tion and the fact that he had a police
force thoroughly in sympathy with him
and with the movement.
It is a problem which has ever con
fronted towns of the size of Newberry
and larger, and one which few have
been able to solve. It is a matter of
congratulation that Newberry's success
has inspired sister cities to determined
efforts.
On The Local Diamond.
Manager Setzler, of the Newberry
College baseball team, has arranged the
following games to be played on the
local diamond:
Newberry vs. Hlomer, April 9th.
Newberry vs. Furman University,
Greenville, April 14th.
Newberty vs. Carolina, Columbia,
April 30th.
Newberry vs. Clemson, May -1th or 6th.
Newberry vs College of Charleston,
May 5th.
The visiting teams are the strongest
in the state and among the strongest
in the south. The Newberry boys
proved the quality of the stuff of which
they are made in the game with Caro
lina in Columbia on Saturday afternoon,
and exciting games are expecte(l on all
of the above dates.
"Tiger" Captured at Chappelks.
Constable Perry followed a box of
liquor marked ''lem y Payne" to Chap
pells on Saturday. When box reached
Chappells he found no one of that
name there to claim it, Pay ne being a
negro who had left some four months
ago and is now in Columbia. The box
was seized. It contained five gallons
of whiskey.
"Social Newberry."
Beginning with this issue The IIer
ald and News wvill once each wveek
dlevote the fourth p)age to the ladies
and society. In this undertaking tIme
00ice would greatly ap precijate the
help of the ladies of the city and through
out the county and will receive wvith
pleasure any suggestions from them.
It is the desire to cover the social func
tion of the county, as well ats the city.
Business College a Great Success.
More than twenty-five studlents have
already been enrolled and a nmumnber of
others are expectedl before the (discount
period ends, wvhich is Wednesday the
8th instant.
Young p)eopile of Newherry have an
oportunity never b)efore otferedl them
and should by all means take advantage
of it. A business education at home
where expenses are not more than one
fourth of going away is something to
be appreciatted.
The teachers in this school are wvell
qlualified in evei y particular and the
practical methods of instruction give
one explerience in business. No one
who (desires a posit ion or a better salary
should fail to attend.

Biaseballists 1mn Hard Luck.
