Not Third Regiment Flag.
Mr. WV. G. Peterson, of Newberry
writes as follows to the Columbi;
I notice that the flag of the Thir4
Regiment, S. C. V., is mentioned ir
the State as one of the Confederat<
battle flags now being returned t<
South Carolina by the secretary o:

So far as the flag of the Third Reg

say that is has been or will be return

THE FLOATING DEBT.
Petition for Election Upon Question
of Funding it-A Business
In accordance with action taken by
city council at a recent meeting, pe
titions are now being circulated
among the freeholders of the city
asking council to order an election
upon the question of funding the
floating debt of the city, amounting
to 324,000, the bonds to run for twen
ty-five years. Under the constitution,
if the debt is funded, it will be neces
sary to provide a sinking fund to re
tire the bonds.
The election can be ordered by
council upon the petition of a majori
ty of the freeholders, and there
seems to be no reason why the names
of a majority of the freholders should
not be secured.
It is a plain business proposition.
It is proposed to fund the debt at not
exceeding five per cent. interest.
which would mean a saving to the
taxpayers in interest of about $700
per year, or a levy of one-half mill
upon the taxable property of the
ON THE DIAMOND.
Newberry. Played Erskine in Due
West Yesterday-To Play Wof
ford in Spartanburg Today.
Having defeated both Erskine and
Wofford on the local diamond, the
Newberry college base ball team left
on the early train over the Southern
yesterday morning to try conclusions
with Erskine on the Erskine diamond,
at Due West, and with Wofford on
the Wofford diamnd, in Spartanburg.
The game with Erskine was played
yesterday afternoon and the Wofford
game takes place in Spartanburg this
afternoon. The Newberrians when
they boarded the train yesterday
morning were in high spirits and con
fident of winning both games.
Next week Newberry will take a
trip into Georgia and show the
Georgians how to play ball. The first
game will be with the University of
Georgia, in Athens, on Wednesday,
April 12. From Athens Newberry
will go to Atlanta, where two games
will be played with Tech., on Friday
afternoon, April 14, and Saturday af
rternoon, April 15.
SA game on the local diamond
1which is being looked forward to
with a great deal of interest by all
t'he local fans is that with Clemson on
Saturday aft.ernoon, April 29. For
the past several years Clemson has
won from Newberry, but always by
.the narrow margin of one score. Thi-s
year it is conceded that Newberry
easily has the strongest team in her
Ihistory, and those who 'have seen the
game$played by Newberry this sea
son are confidently expecting her to
win from Clemson.
Visited Leesville Lodge.
The following is from the Lees
ville correspondence of the Colombia
Sir Knight E. H. Aull, D. D. G. C.
for District No. 4., visited Leesville
lodge, N. 144, K. of P. Monday night.

bership great encouragement. This
is ayoung enthusiastic lodge which is
growing very rapidly.
Dr. D. M. Crosson and W. Aug.

ing at New'berry as delegates. This
is the first lodge that Col. Aull has
visited since his appointment but he
expects to visit all the lodges of his
district before the meeting of the
grand lodge inl May at Beaufor't.
The New Mail Route.
Postoffice Inspector Veasey will
today go over the new mail route
which it is proposed to start on May
. Inspector Veasey desires to de
termine whether it is better to start
the route at Kinards or at Reno. The
pr.posed route has already been men
tioned in The Herald and News. It
is stated that it will cross Little river
Sat the Burton bridge and recross Lit
te river at the Long bridge, coming
back to the starting point. As pro
posed now, it will take' in about ten
boxes on Mr. W. G. Peterson's route.
which is now about 28 miles in length
being the longest route in the county.
The new route will traverse a section
which necs better mail facilities.
[t Will be Given on Memorial Day
by the Local Chapter Daughters
of the Confederacy.
At the last meeting of Drayton
Rutherford chapter, Daughters of the
Confederacy. it was decided to give a
iinner to the Confederate veterans of
Newberry county, on Memorial day,
May 1o. It is desired by the Daugh
ers to extend an invitation to every
v-eteran in the county, and it is desir
d that every veteran attend. There
will be cot.siderable difficulty, how
ver, in securing the names of all the
eterans unless the veterans them
elves send in their names, and the
Daughters request that every veteran
n the county send his name as soon
is possible to Mrs. 0. B. Mayer, pres
dent of Drayton Rutherford chapter.
Arrangements will be begun im
mediately for the dinner, and it prom
ses to be a de'ghtful occasion for

Col. Goggans was an Edgefield
man and was a soldier of the 7th S.
C. V. rising to the rank of lieutenant
colonel. He was highly esteemed
wherever known, of irreproachable
character and for many years a mem
ber of the Methodist church.
Gen. Jubal A. Early in his account
of the disaster at Cedar Creek espec
ially mentions Col. Goggans as doing
good work in rallying his men.

been added to th'e circuit of fift]
lights, and the additional lights wer<

To Secure New Fire Horse.
At the meeting of city council 01
Wednesday night the fire committe,
was authorized to look into the mat
ter of securing another horse for fir,
service. One of the horses now i1
use is not in good condition and it i
desired to replace him with a bette
horse. The fire committee, consistini
of Aldermen Van Smith, Willian
Johnson and J. J. Langford, has a
yet taken no decisive action in th
A Small Fire.
The fire department was called ou
shortly after 12 o'clock on Tuesd1*
afternoon, the alarm being occasione
by burning timbers in the Southeri
trestle, over Scott's creek, above th
passenger depot. The fire, iti
thought, was caused by coals o
sparks from a passing engine. Th
department made fine time to th
scene, and the fire was put out be
fore it caused any considerable dam
-An Orderly Crowd.
Attention has already been calle,
in these columns to the unusuall:
Elarge crowd, even for the first Satur
day in April, in the city on last Sat
urday. Chief of Police Harris say
that hie never saw as many wagon
here from the county in one day be
fore, and he is especially gratified ii
that it was one of the most orderl:
crowds he ever saw. Only three ar
rests were necessary during the en
Itire day. and these were for mino
offences such as drunkenness.
More Pledges Wanted.
EWhile it is believed that the num
ber of pledges to reduce the cotto1
acreage and the use of fertilizers
which have been signed by the far
mers of Newberry county, is consid
erably larger than the numiber of 45
Ireported to the executive committe
of the cotton growers association 01
last Saturday. yet many more pledge
fr~om the cotton planters are desirei
Iby th'e executive committee, and th'
canvass will be continued. It is onl:
a short time now until the crop wil
Ihave been planted, and the cottoi
planters who have not yet done s<
are firged to sign the pledge. It i
generally conceded that a heavy cro;
this year will be disastrous to thi
