Entered at the Postoffice at New
her/, S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday, August 15, 1916.
It is not our purpose to have any
controversy with any one about the
asylum or the appointment of Dr.
Williams or about the great philanthropy
of the governor in contributing
out of his personal funds to the
salary of Dr. -Williams. The Herald
end News tries to be fair to all candidates
and to give all of them a square
deal. The editor will exercise his
r*ght to cast his balot as to him seems
t>est. That privilege we are willing
to accord to every one else without
any disagreement or argument.
r?nr rpmllpotion of the statement of
Mr. Cooper in regard to the salary
matter was that it was illegal not .
only for the governor to make an ef- ;
fort to increase it but that it was also
illegal for Dr. Williams to accept
< 1
an increase beyond that fixed by law
for the position. For that reason The
Herald and News did venture to
ask why Gov. Manning did not exhibit :
the receipt from Dr. Williams for this
irjprpflsp ir> salarw
We suppose the governor had a
right to make a gift to Dr. Wiliiams in
the way of an increase in salary, if
lh.e wanted to, out of his personal
funds; but did Dr. Williams have a
legal right to accept it and could he
do so without violating the penal
code? That is the question we asked.
Y?Te have known Dr. Williams for a
good many years and we esteem him
very highly as a man, and for that
reason we did x^ot see how he could
accept an amount greater as salary !;
than that lixed by law.
Our local cotemporary says: "Any
citizen, governor or what not, has a
right to supplement any officer's 5
salarv.-' r.Viell, we are not so sure j '
, ! ]
about it, but we will not argue the; ,
Question. Please answer this ques-! i
tion. Has the officer .1 right to accep- j
an increase? .vow, beiore you answer,
read the following section from
the Criminal Code of 1S12:
"Sec. 539. Acceptance of Rebates ^
"No person holding an office or position
of trust or profit in this State, 1
or in the public institutions thereof,
shall accept rebates or extra compensation,
in addition to that provid/
ed by law.
"Any person violating the provisions
of this Section shall be fined in
a sum not less than one hundred dollars
nor more than five hundred
dollars, or be imprisoned for not less
than three months nor more than
five years.
"This Section shall not apply) to
officers accepting rebates, not for
tlieir individual use, but for the bene
It and in behalf of the State.
"Crim. Code. 1902, See. 3S2; Stat.
1899. XXIII. 96."
Was that $250 a month contributed
"by Gov. Manning "extra compensation.''

A Statement As
To Cour
(Polii.cal Advertisen
Mr. James C. Sample, County Supervisor,
Newberry, S. C.
Dear Sir:
A short while ago Mr. H. M. Boozer obtained
County's finances, i..nd in order that you migln
formation from your office 1 showed you a cop}
you were entitled to know about it notwithst<
law, are open to public inspection.
i ou have asked me to explain to you trie la
191 -i of certain extraordinary sums of mone}
use of in 1915.
It is a fact that commutation tax was collec
$5,690.00, or' which $5,576.46 was paid out duri
going to pay chaingarig cla .is; whereas, in
lected was $1,944.00. or a difference in favor o
Shoals Power Co.. paid the County $14,800.00 tc
which might be caused by the ponding of wate
lie road at Heller's creek. All of this money
across the creek and in making the fill leadins
800.00, which was used for ordinary purposes i
to Mr. Boozer when i gave him the statement
that claims against County were p.?id January
You have -asked me, if during 1914 some mu
were not sold. and. if so, what they brought,
tion is they brought between $700 and $800.
will show the exact amount turned over to hii
will also show Me exact balance paid the Trea:
Power Co., deal. I am also asked if considerab
from the County Home lands during 1914. Sue
no record 3,s io the number of feet and have,
of uny such lumber.
You had no such extraordinary items of ire
to be absolutely fair and just to you and yo;:r a
at your request. 1 am making mention of these
I hope rhe foregoing covers the inform- tion

Mr. Voter, you see from the above If reeh
letter from Mr. HoUoway that Mr. H. I have
Boozer had full information as to ; roads ;
the deficiency of the funds for 1915,! roadvva
and to be fair to me I think Mr. j T jia

all of the voters beforp the election, is 1 j,
why I am sending this out through j ^
the papers, if you hear any rumors '
of a hurtful nature in regard I , v
ianu oy
to the expenditure of the furds oi! .. _
not pr?
Newberrv county 1 will consider it a ' . .. ;

favor if you will drill to see IMr. HolloIi

records. He will take pleasure in : ment j
showing them to you and you will find j attorn
that the rumor that was in rim: la- '

tion is untrue.
I presume from the criticism of my i
opponent in regard to the expendi- j
tures of the funds of Newberry coun- j carne?
ty. if he should succeed me the roads i ot
and bridges will be neglected, as, Mr. j ; fin
Voter, you know roads can't be work- j road a
ed and bridges can't he built withoutj of as t
the expenditure of the funds. I hlave j hands
spent the money appropriated for this and th
purpose and have no apologies to ! funds ;
