Comissioner of Immigration Makes
His First Annual Report.
Commissioner of Immigra:ion
Watson on December 22nd, turned
over to the printer his annual report
of the work done in his department
in the nine months since the gov
ernor filled the office created by the
general assembly. As yet it is impos
sible to give figures. Immigrants
are arriving every day and the totals
will not be included in the report until
the last day of the year. A letter
was received on the 22nd stating that
21 were expected to arrive here on
Christias eve, coming direc: from
Scotland. In the past three days about
30 have arrived and at least 5o more
are expected. The report, however,
shows that the work is an increase
bi two-thirds over the work of the
4ta:e of Alaryland in i months up to
the time when the 'appropriation in
that state was increased to $50,0001
Commissioner Watson says that he
is perfectly satisfied with the work, es
pecially the movement in regard to
immigration which only commenced
Swearing In Public.
There is, perhaps, no town in
South Carolina more free from the
nuisance of swearing on the streets
and in public than is Newberry, but
at the same time there is a great deal
more than ther'e should be. Many of
the persons brought before the
mayor this week for trial were
charged with loud and boisterous
cursing on the streets. The officers
-enforce the law against this evil to
the best of their ability, but many
persons seem to think they can use
profane or obscene language at any
time or place they wish, and for their
information the following from the
Criminal Code of thei Statutes of
South Carolina' is quoted:
"Sec. 229. Any person or per
sons who shall be found on any high
way or at any public place on public
gathering in a grossly intoxicated
