JON BROOKS PARDONI).
, 1 yernor Heyward on Saturday also
oned John Brooks, convicted at the
mber, 1902, term of court for this
ty of larceny and sentenced to the
n gang for one year. Brooks is in
y bad health owing to three bullets
hich he carries in his body and which
ve made him a sufferer from rheuma
ism, and he has served his sentence
hus far by remaining confined in jail.
Brooks was shot by Policeman Franklin
n January of last year. A few days
.,,before lie had stolen about a bushel of
potatoes from Mrs. Werber's potato
house-the crime for which he was sen
tenced. le was arrested on suspicion,
carried before M agistrate Chappell, and
held on his own recognizance. There
was very little testimony conclusive of
his guilt. A few days later Policeman
Franklin discovered that the potatoes
were hidden in Jones' woods beyond
J. A. Burton's residence near where
Brooks lived. Carrying Mr. Vaughn
with him, Policeman Franklin went to
recover the potatoes. Just as he started
to return to the city lie wvas confronted
by Brooks, who with a scythe blade in
his upraised hand demanded to knowv
what wvas wvanted. Policenman Franklin
shot him ini the left arin and Vaughn
shot him twice in the thigh. lie wvas
tried in November and senitenced to the
gang.

Logleal #rgument.
The goods roads meeting at Young's
arove on Friday was the most largely
Attended in the campaign thus far, the

Mr. R. T. C. Hunter acted as chair
man of the meeting.
Addresses were made by the Rev. S.
[1. Zimmerman, Col. E. H. Aull, Hon.
Dole. L. Blease, and Prof. W. K. Sligh.
rhe positions taken at the various meet
Ings by Messrs. Zimmerman, Aull, and
Blease have already been stated in these
,olumns. Prof. Sligh made a strong
and logical argument for an issue of
bonds. Prof. Sligh said in part:
TH1E ISSUE OF BONDS.
"If it is intended to really build roads
the following plan appears to me the
most practical and economical:
"Issue $200,000 worth of 4 per cent.
bonds and thus place ourselves in a posi
tion to receive $200,000 in cash from the
national government if the government
extends aid, as it is very probable it
will do. Pennsylvania has taken the
necessaiy steps to get nine millions.
When these great States take hold of a
thing there must be something in it.
Moreover, this is the first chance the
South hes had to get something for the
forty millions she pays the national gov
ernment each year. $100,0C would
build 400 miles of road. This would
cover the county pretty well. These
$400,000 would be spent in the county for
labor, material, hauling, etc. Our pL
ple would get nearly all of it and it
would make times better.
"A 2-mill property tax would pay the
interest on these bonds and relieve them
in thirty 'years. (Here the spe.aker gave
an array of figures showing this result.
It is impossible to obtain the figures for
this issue, but they w'll be given lator.)
"This levy would be lessened from
year to year as the value of property
incA-eesed. $2..J commutation tax would
keep the roads leading into the main
roads in excellent condition."
The speaker saidl he had seen road
building in Maryland and Pennsylvania,
the farmers haulcd the stones from the
nearest quaiiy and dumped them in a
rough condition on the road-beds. Then
they were broken into the required
sizes by men with hammers. The work
was;very rapid and not expensive. Of
course the road had been previously sur
veyed and grade by an engineer. We
have as good or even hetter material foi
road building. Our ordinary granite i.
said to be es fine as any stone in thc
world for roads. It is plentiful and
well distributed. Where there is nc
granite odher good stone can be had,
Newberry conty is exceptional in rc.
gard to material.
The bond plan is superior to the pay
as-you-go plan for several resons:
1. It is not just to make the presen1
generation bear all the expense of sucl
permanent improvements.
2. The wvork wvould be too slow or else
the taxes too high if we try to pay a:
we go. A two-mill tax wvould rais<
$11,000 a year. This would necessaril:
be spent for a few years on some on,
scction of the county. Other section
wvould become dlissatisfied. The roa<
tax would become an issue in p)olitic,
The majority reevn no direct benefi
for a long number of years wvould sen
men to the legislature pledged to rc
move the tax. 'This would end the got
roads question. I f you pr~opose to mak
the tax heavy enough to build road
rapidly the p)eop)le can't afford it.
3. The bond p)lanl would put into cii
culation $100,000 at a cost to the tai
payers of 2 per~ cent. interest.
4. The bond p)lan would in a few yeai
bring the benefits of good roads to tI
whole county. All the people wvoul
have the use of them and all the pri~
erty wvould increase in value at one,

of the meeting.

Flour Higher.
The late Government report makeE
the wheat crop thirty-five million bush
els less than last year. This means ver3
much higher flour until another harvesi
in 1904. All flour is higher now, but
the advance on Bransford's "Clifton'
has not yet been as great in proportior
to other flour. However, it is a might!

H. ADDRESS
WOrBCHARLES'
WAS NOT SENT AWAY.
State Treasruer Jennings Makes a State
,ment About the Columbia Hospital
Matter.
Several days ago there appeared in)
The Herald and News an article stating
that a white man in the last stages of
consumption, very weak and unable to
walk, got off the Southern's passenger
train in this city, claiming to have been
sent away from the Columbia hospital
in this condition and that the hospital
had not provided him with a ticket to
carry him home and that some one at
the State house had written a note to
the tieket agent securing transporta
tion for him to Newberry. The man,
who gave his name as John Cook, said
that his home was in Greenville. The
man's statements in regard to the
alleged ill-treatment by the Columbia
hospital were very generally circulated
and they were printed for; the purpose of
giving the hospital an'oppoi tunity to
set itself straight in the matter, and
without an intention of reflecting upon
the hospital or the people of Columhia
in any manner whatever. The man's
statements were printed as they were
made. The people of Newberry could not
believe them unless there should be no
denial from the hospital, and The Herald
and News so stated in these words:
"The people of Newberry refuse to be
lieve that in this civilized age such a
course would be pursued by any hospit
al anywhere." But there was "some
thing wrong some where'' and the man's
statements were printed for the purpoLc
of getting the matter cleared. The
following from the Columbia State of
Saturday puts the matter straight.
No injustice was done the Columbia
hospital by The Herald and News. In
fact, the Columbia people would have
been done an injustice had they been
given no opportunity to correct the im
pression which the man's statements
necessarily created. The State says:
An injustice has been done the man
agement of the Columbia hospital re
cently. The Newberiy Herald anl
News recently published a story from
a sick man w.io left the train there and
complained that he had boen sent away
from the Columbia hospital in a deplor
able condition and penniless. ThIs|
stat 3ment attractcd the attention of
the State treasurer, Capt. R. It. Jen
nings, who yesterday gave to The S)ate
a statement showing that the sick man
evidently suffers from some kiind or
vagary and that he was not turned out
of the Columbia hospital.
Capt. Jennings said yestCrday: "I
notice in your issue of this mo omng an
article from the Newberey Ierald and
News under the headin;, 'Something
Wrong Somewhere,' a'd as I happen
to be tlhe 'sonic one at the State house'
me itioned, I desire in the interet of
ti ath and fairness to state the facts s
I know them. -
"Mr. Cook came into the treasurer's
office in the.forenoon of Saturday as I
recollect and said that lie had come from
Augsfi, Ga., 'vhere he had been in a
hospital and w:-. discharged v;th free
transporLation to this city; th.t lie wvs
dying with corsumption and wanted to
get to Newbei -y, where lie had worked
