t'OLCXE L, XUVBEB Ml. ' NEWBERRY, SOUTH CAROLINA, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1912. TWICI A WMK, IUI A YIAJL *" EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE , OMRS SECOND PRIMARY j ACTION OF COUNTY CHAIRMAN DOMIMCK IS APPROVED. Three Candidates In Second Race for Magistrate No. 11 Township?The State and County Tickets. x At a meeting of the county Demo* cratic executive committee, held in the court house on Saturday, a second primary for county offices in Newberry county was ordered to be held on Tuesday, October 15, and other business was transacted. The meeting was called to order at 12 o'clock noon by County Chairman Fred. H. Dominick, Secretary Frank R. Hunter being at his post of duty. There * were about twenty-five members of the committee present. County Chairman Dominick recited the fact that the second primary in # v Newberry had been postponed, for the reasons already fully published; that since then the State committee had met and declared the results of the first primary, had ordered a second primary for attorney general to be held on October 15, and had recommended that in the counties where primaries for county offices were still v * necessary that they be held on this date. County Chairman Dominick said that in Newberry county second races were necessary for one member of the house of representatives, county super intendent of education, supervisor, county commissioners, and magistrates for two townships, Nos. 10 and 11. Dr. W. C. Brown moved that a seck ond primary for Newberry county be held on October 15, open to those candidates qualified to enters for the offices for which no candidate had received a majority in the first primary, mentioned above, and that the same managers act. Mr. J. B. Bedenbaugh > seconded the motion, and it was carried The matter of magistrate in No. 11 township was brougnt up oy Mr. Eugene S. Blease, who stated that Mr. B. T. Richardson, one of the candidates, contended that he would have been in the second face instead of Mr. E. A. Hentz, had two votes for Mr. Richardson cast at Jolly Street, in No. 110 township, been counted. County Chairman Dominick said Mr. Richard y son naa written mm aoouu cm? manei, and asked that the committee take it up. Mr. E. S. Blease thought if the A xabulating committee had overlooked Bp these two votes and they would change IT the complexion of the second race, that ^ Mr. Richardson ought to have them if he was entitled to them, the primary for magistrate being simply a recommendation for appointment, anyway, t and Mr. Blease moved that a commitr tee of three be apointed to tabulate again the vote for magistrate for Xo. 11 townsmp ana investigate tms matter particularly. The motion was adopted, and Messrs. W. A. McSwain, Geo. B. Aull and T. J. Wilson were appointed on this committee. The committee was instructed to report its findings to the chairman and secretary, who were to order a second race between the two candidates found by the committee-to have received the largkest and next largest number of votes for magistrate of this township. County Chairman Dominick stated to tne committiee ms acuon m | ? matter of the investigation of alleged ? fraud and irregularity in Newberry county, demanded by the subcommittee of the State committee. Mr. Dominick's position was stated fully in his L correspondence with Sub-Chairman J. h B. Park, of the State committee, alt ready published in full in The Herald and News. On motion, the executive committee approved the action of Chairman Dominick, without aissent^ ing vote. tThe committee adjourned to meet on Thursday, October 17, to declare the results of the second primary. Throe in Hace for Magistrate No. 11. The subcommittee appointed to retabulate the vote for magistrate of Xo. 11 found that there was one vote at Jolly Street for Mr. B. T. Richardson, which had been overlooked, and this made a tie vote between Messrs. Richardson and Hentz. putting both of * them U. cor* r.- rJ Vv;<- h. H Ruff h > 1 5?j : I The f :r S*.

Former N'ewberrian, of Distinguished Family, Was Pleasant Visitor In Newberry. Miss Virginia A. Sondley, of Greenwood, spent a few days in Newberry last week visiting Mrs. Edw. R. Hipp. Miss Sondley is a native of Newberry county, being a member of the Xewberry family of that nam?. She is a direct descendant of Matthias Hentz, who in the year 1760 lived near the mouth of Cannon's Creek, on Broad river. After the subscription li-ts for the monument to the Women of the Southern Confederacy, erected in Columbia, had been closed, they were opened for nnp dav to receive a subscription from Miss Sondley, given in respect to the memory of her mother, Mrs. Mary Frances Branch Sondley, and her grandmother. Mrs. Isaac Branch, who accompanied her husband, Dr. Branch, to the front in the War Between the States, and assisted in caring for the wounded and sick. It. was erroneously stated, in connection with the subscriptions to this monument, that it was unique in that it was built without thft subscriDtions of any woman, Miss Sondley being the only woman who contributed. Miss Sondley is a cousin of the late Col. Jno. L. Branch, who was in command of the troops on Morris Island, including the corps of Citadel cadets, who fired upon the "Star of the West," which volley was the first fired in*the war. Miss Sondley has many warm friends in Newberry county, who are always delighted to see her. NEWS OF POXARIA. Farmers Busy?Crops Short?Monunents to he Unveiled?Personal Mention.

The cotton crop is much off from what it was last year, but the price does fairly well. Our school opened this morning with Miss Lottie Lee Halfacre as teacher. We hope by another year we will have our new school building, for which some few months ago we voted $3,.")00 bonds. It was thought then that we would have the building ready for this school term, but circumstances prevented. We have had several cases o'f typhoid fever in town. Mr. Thaddeus Kinard has had two children sick; his eldest son, Ernest, is still sick. Mrs. Sawyer, of Marion, is visiting her son's family. Mr. Sawyer is agent at this place for the Southern railway. On next Sunday at 1 o'clock p. m. there will be an unveiling of the monuments of Sovereigns Sammie Grham and Sam Bean at Mt. Pleasant church.

Augusta, Ga., Oct. 6.?A trolley car, manned by four strikebreakers, wafl attacked just beyond North Augusta about 5 o'clock .this afternoon, all of the men severely flogged and ono of them shot in the hip. When the crowd had taken theotrikebreakers off the car one of them, was rushed over to a clay pit, where excavation had been made and water was | standing.

Another of the men was taken to the edge of the woods and flogged until his clothing was torn to shreds. Three of the strikebreakers are at the city hospital suffering from sever? ^ bruises and cuts.
