' Railroad Disaster Near London, Eng laud, La8t Sunday. - i % One of the most serious railway ac cidents in England since the disaste to the steamer train at Salisbury, ii July, 1908, when many American lost their lives, occurred at Stoali Nest near London on the London am Brighton railway Sunday afternoon Eight dead and about thirty injure< were taken from the wreck.

The thir< class cars were completely wrecke< and a part of the building was de molished. The Pullman was throwi violently into the air but was com paratively little damaged. Its pas sengers escaped with minor injuries One account says that the wrecl was due to the derailment of a por ti<?n of the train and another that i' was due to the breaking of the coup ling betwen the first and second cars The two tnira ciass cars rearea ai most on their ends and toppled ovei on the platform, bringing down i mass of iron girders and timbers fron the station, with a tremendous crash Doctors, ambulance detachments and boy scouts with stretchers sooi appeared.

Washington, Jan. 31.?Senatoi Smith, of South Carolina, to-day con suited President Taft about the bil he intends to push providing for i national commission to reclaim over flowed and wet lands in the Soutl and elsewhere. Mr. Smith want: this bill referred to the Senate com mittee on agriculture, because th< purpose is to increase the agricul tural lands all over the country. "This proposition is of much mori value to the country," said Senato: Smith, "than the immense expendi tiire to reclaim the arid lands of th< West. Drainage of the richest landi may be done at far less cost per acr< than in the arid regions and for agri cultural purposes they will be in finitely more useful to the country The bill provides for redeeming no only public lands, but privately own ed lands under conditions of benefi to the government." The South Carolina Senator alsi talked with the President about having the battleship South Carolina sen to Charleston to receive a silver ser vice contributed by citizens of tha State. The President said that h< would be glad to have the battleshi] ordered to South Carolina waters s< soon as it could be done. Senato Smith went to the Navy Departmen to consult officials there about th< going of the vessel. SAM TYLER KILLED. Several Negroes Were Out Hunting g When Shooting Occurred. i. ^ Last Saturday afternoon about foui j. o'clock Sam Tyler, a negro wbo ha: been working for Mr. J. J. Simmonj & for a number of years, was shot ant r' killed while out hunting rabbits 01 y the Price plantation just out of town There were four negroes in the hunt y ing party: Sam Tyler, his sod, San y Tyler, Jr., Otis Brabham, and Clar ence McMillan. Young Tyler is abou sr seventeen or eighteen years old Brabham is a boy of about fourteen while McMillan and the elder Tylei O rt w/\ V ^"\ V? Anirl/llA O rvo/l TV\ AM 'Pvl A1 , ai c uulu unuuic men. ? j 1^1 l* received a load of No. 7 shot in hi! !S chest and face, and only lived abom half an hour after being wounded 'r A physician was hurriedly sent for but he died before medical aid coulc reach him. As soon as possible, Magistrate H l" D. Free empannelled a jury who wem out and viewed the body and returnee l" to town, where the inquest was held l~ Several witnesses were examined l" among them being young Tyler, Brabham, and McMillan. The substance of the testimony of Tyler and Brab e ham was that McMillan's shot killec Sam Tyler, while McMillan swore n that Brabham's gun went off and die a the killing. Some negroes who wen 't near at hand and who rushed to th'c scene immediately after the shoti were fired testified to the effect thai when they arrived McMillan said tc 11 young Tyler that this was the resull b of bringing children hunting, anc Tyler said yes, meaning that Brabham had shot his father. On account of the conflict in the testimony, the jury returned a verlf diet that Tyler came to his death at " the hands of unknown parties, and t none of the negroes have been arl" rested. , There was some rumor of bad ' blood between Tyler and McMillan, * but this has not been put in any definite shape up to this writing, and it seems to be the general opinion that the killing was an accident, but as to whether Brabham or McMillan fired the fatal shot is a question in doubt. It appears that a rabbit jumped up and three of the negroes fired at it, young Tyler, Brabham, and McMillan, but which one killed Tyler r is a matter of conjecture. Certain 1 it is that the elder Tyler, being in the s line of fire, received a load of No. 7 ? shot, and it is said that young Tyler and McMillan had No. 7 shot in their guns, while Brabham was using No. * 5 shot. The whole matter will be laid before Solicitor Byrnes by Mag1 istrate Free, and whatever course the 1 solicitor advises will be followed. * Com Tvior wna a necrro. and J W?*u * J *V?

City Council Meeting. 1 Bamberg's city council held a regular monthly meeting Tuesday even* ing at the office of Bamberg Banking Company, Mayor J. A. Wyman and r Aldermen M. W. Brabham, D. J. 1 Delk, E. Dickinron, J. D. Co.;eland, 1 Jr., J. M. Grimes, and rt. L. Risher being present, a i all council. A number of routine n.alters were 1 attended to and the bills against * ' council approved. Mr. Marion Srooak, Jr., of the * Midway section, v. us elected night policeman, and wiii enter u: on his duties at once. Clerk and Treasurer Brabham had 3 prepared a map showing the various streets of the town, f.n.l council took up the matter of na.ning all streets which had not been named heretofore, and they will ask the C.vic League to take up the matter of j having erected subsi?ntial signs showing the names of the streets. 1 Chief of the fire department W. D. Rhoad was present, and conferred ' -- 1 : witn council as to mc 5 department. The sum of $100 wcs appropriated for repairing and equipa ping the hook and ladder truck now on hand. The board of trustees of the city graded school appeared be Tore coun[ cil and requested if possible that council would appropriate about $400 to finish paying exj enses for this session in order that ti e school might run until June. Figuring all the income possible, including the dispensary profits, high school fund, ' and taxes, the revenue will lack about $400 of paying expenses until June, and the trustees are at a loss to keep the school open. Council authorized Mayor Wyman to take 3 charge of the matter and confer with " the commissioners of public works 1 and see if a portion of the business license could not be used for this ap* propriation. There is no question e but that the school needs the money P badly, and it is hoped some method 3 will be devised for keeping the school r open until June, t T 1 J V,A?l,n n* B I iiUgai uiou&a auu uiaua uuuao mi I the Herald Book Store. j As to Secession. ? Editor The Bamberg Herald: The cause for which so many Southerners and Northerners laid r down their lives in the war of se3 cession is a dead issue. Never again 3 will there be another slave issue, i At least we have reason to believe 1 that there will not be. But in the . wake of the dreadful conflict waged - we observe many mementoes that i serve as a lesson to liberty lovers the - extreme havoc of war. Naturally the t inquiring youth will unfold the pages , of history in search of the causes of , these great strifes, and he is often r deluded by biased or prejudiced r writers, the so-called makers of his3 tory, but we are gratified to know t that there are many sons born of . Southern parentage, and patriotic , to Southern principles, who are not 1 so easily led into misrepresentations. I quote from the Story of . America, a contribution by Colonel t A. K. McClure, entitled: "Some forl gotten lessons of the war." "It will . be equally surprising to the students , of American history to-day to learn - that the great mass of people of both i sections of the country were so pro foundly interested in averting fral ternal conflict that only the madness i of the secession leaders forced by the I North to unite in the support of the i war by wantonly liiring upon the J starving and helpless garrison at Ft. 3 Sumter when its peaceable surrender t could have been accomplished with> in a few hours thereafter." ; t This is a flagrant misrepresental tion. It would lead the student to believe that the Southerners, or properly South Carolinans attacked the i garrison at Ft. Sumter without any provocation whatever. It is conclu: sive that the State of South Carolina 1 would not have been followed by the other Southern States were the attack upon Ft. Sumter unjustified. 1 War at this time was inevitable. . The slavery question naa Deen con tested in the National legislature for many years, but to avail very little towards the emancipation of the i slaves, at least to no avail in some of the Southern States. The stern advocates were met with no less antagonism through the South's rep resentatives in the National' legislature. One declaration by a South era leader was: "Slavery now pre' serves in quiet and security more than six million human beings, and that i it could not be destroyed without destroying the peace and prosperity of nearly half the States in the union." Was not this prophecy adequately fulfilled? It is not necessary to go into details of history on this question; suffice to say that the question was at issue for Immediate settlement, and the Northerners would not accept any compromises as they had done in many instances. South Carolina and Georgia were the most obstinate States, and they declared they would secede from the union if the North did not pay recognition to the existence of slavery within their borders. .But here is the lesson. South Carolina or either any of the Southern States were not in OflrtfoHnn Q Q 4 6 QH aggreaouiD iu ? ? ? flagrantly misrepresented by Northern writers. When the State of South Carolina seceded we were a free and sovereign republic, and knew that wo would have to fight to preserve our f' session at all hazards, and this we did by making immediate attack upon t':e federal garrison at Ft. Sumter, claiming that a just vantage ground in the waging of conflict to follow nnd a declaration of war to maintain our sovereignty. Again Norther:1 writers have made misrepresentations by asserting that Lincoln's attitude was to preserve the union. How con' 1 they expect the union preserved in the face of the depression brought o bear upon the South? Here we have arrived at the issue. We were loyal to justice, and to justice only, and had they not forced the issue upon us we would not have seceded. History says that Lincoln at one time during secession ofTered resignation of his office. Why did he do this? He had felt remorse | of conscience at that grave moment, but ah, it was too late. Public sentiment had wrought its awful work, and he having pledged his party to do their will in his administration could not shirk from its performance. It is true that the emancipation proclamation was not issued until he saw that it was an impossibility to make an amicable sett' ment without allowing the seceded states comTiancaHnn for thpir slaves. His WOTdS were as he signed the pr?!amation: "I feel no compunction v -atever in signing this proclamation." I know that he must have. There is never 1 a life so desperate caused by pursuing the wrong course in life but there is i not stirred within some human heart some sympathy and compassion for the erring one, and certainly it is at i this juncture in Lincoln's career that I feel extreme sympathy for him.
