Editor Herald and News: Herewith
I beg to hand you a report to-date,
showing' arrest and fines through the
rural police of the county since the:
17th of March, 1912:
T. G. Williams and 0. H. Peterson,
rural policemen, are patroling the
county. These men have demeaned
themselves in a way to gain the approval
of the tax payers and citizens
throughout the countv. who assure me
that there is .a greater feeling of safety
and security, and especially with
the ladies, since their installation.
Neither of them travel their routes
rotatively or at stated times, but try
to appear unexpectedly ana irregularly
and in that way to keep the criminal
classes in the dark as to their
movements. There .has been convictions
of rowdy crowds on the highways,
and convictions of black and
white gangs of disorderly persons,
which so often end in blood shed and
expensive litigations in the circuit
Report of T. G. Williams, rural policeman
Twenty-three arrests up to date;
fines aggregating $130; one sentenced
on gang for eight years, and estimate
the labor on gang at $150 per year,

would amount to $i,.?uu.
Report of 0. H. Peterson, rural policeman:
Twelve arrests; fines aggregating

audience in attendance. If the parents
of children under the school age
could appreciate and know just what
Miss Harris is doing in this work, she
would receive more- hearty support
and would have * great many more
children. The age at which she takes
them is really the most important age
in the life of a child, and proper ana
careful training at that age will be of
great help to the child through the
years of its school life and through

Hearing Before Judge Frank B. Garj

The question as to whether or not
Newberry is to have a near-beer saloon
is to be decided by Judge Gary
at chambers early in July. Some time
ago Mr. J. T. Laiwson undertook to
open such a place on the Prosperity
road, just beyond the incorporate
limits of the city, but was closed by
the governor. Mr. Lawson, through
his attorneys, has filed a petition with ,

Mayor Langford is in Rock Hill

Captain W. H. Shelley, alderman

Captain Shelly stated on Thursday
that in the absence of the
city attorney, Eugene S. Blease, Esq.,
who is in North Carolina, that city
council had formulated no plans, but
that he desired it understood that city
council would fight to the bitter end ^
and exhaust every means in its power
to prevent the establishment of any
near-beer saloon in Newberry.
I Attorney Blease has been asked to
come home and will take up the matter,
and, of course, return will be made
to the petition and the argument
against the establishment of a near
beer saloon will be made before Judge H
Gary at Laurens on July 8.
It will be noted that Judge Gary's
temporary restraining order only enjoins
the city from "interfering with
the plaintiff in the sale of soft drinks
and beverages containing alcohol
which will not intoxicate if drunk to r
