School Trustees Exempt from Road Duty.
Judge Norton decided at the Court
this week that School Trustees were
exempt from road duty. The case
came up on appeal. Mr. Jno. C. Neel
who is a school trustee refused to per
form road duty, and was indicted un
der the law, and when the case came
before Judge Norton he sustained the
appeal and held that school trustees
were not liable. Mr. Neel was repre
sented by Mower & Lathati.

The Meeting at the Thompson Street
The Rev. W. W. Orr, of Hunters
yille, N. C., has been in Newberry for
the past ten days conducting a meet
ing in the Thompson Street A. R. P.
church. He intended to close on Sun
day night, but a large petition was pre
sented to him to continue the service,
and it was continued to Tuesday n ight.
Much interest was manifested in all
the services by tile members of all the
churches in town, and it is hoped that
much good will result.
Rev. Mr. Orr has preached twenty
sermons during his stay here. He is a
forcible and earnest talker, and pre
sents the truth with clearness and
strength and so plain that no one can
fail to understand.

A Beautirul Masonic Jewel.
We learn from our masonic friends
that Signet %pter No. 18, of Royal
Arch Masons, voted its late M1. E H. P.
.Companion Eduard Scholtz, an appro
priate jewel, as a token of its apprecia
tion of his masonic services and devo
tion to the Chapter. The jewel is a
handsomely finished tripple triangle
on which tbe word Jehovah is en
graved in Hebrew. Suitable resoultions
went with this deserved tribute to a
worthy mason, who will feel justly
proud of the gift from his brethren of
the ancient guild.
Mr. Scholtz will be missed not only
by the masonic fraternity. His church
will miss him and the community will
miss him, for he was a devoted, ener
getic and public-spirit:-d citizen, and
always took an active interest in every
thing likely to redound to the good of

After the court was organized Judge
Norton delivered a short charge to the
Grand .Jury. Aioingst other things he
said: The Grand Jury has nothing to
do Witih legislation which ouu'ht to be
enactedi or repealed. TIicir duty is
-iip!vl to see to the enfuoreenient of the
law it stands; to review the conduct
of olie"ers not purely discretionary.
liere it is the luty of an olicer to do
a certain thing the Grand Jury ougl"
to see that lie does it. He said it was
the duty of the (Grand Jury to bring
oflenders to justice, and while they
were not to go around prying into every
bidy's business, still it was their duty
to take notice of certain crimes such as
gai bling and selling whiskey contrary
to law, and such other offenses. It is
the duty of the Grand Jury to do their
best to enforce the law. He then
lhnrged them as to their special work

We have examined, by committees
of our body, the differenit County oflees.
Everything is neat and in good order.
The books are well and correctly kept
-every thi ngas it should be, leaving nio
cause of complaint so far as we could
We have also examined the public
buildings- There are repairs needed in
front of the Courthouse. The roof leaks
and should be repaired. The Jail looks
to be clean and kept in good order.
The prisoners say they receive the
proper attention. There are leaks in
the roof of the jail which should be
rep)aired. The roof on the kitchen
neceds to be repaired, as it leaks, which
is causing the plastering to fall ofi, and
is (doing much damage to the, wall.
'The well is in bad condition. The wall
inside should be built higher, and the
shelter or covering over and around
tue well should be renewed. The fence
around the jail lot should be rebuilt.
A number of glasses are out of the
windlows of the jail. Many of these
needed repairs about the jail were re
ported by the last Grand Jury, but,
received no attention.
A committee visited the Poor House
and report that they found the inmates
all in appearance comfortable, and
showing care on t[-e part of the keeper.
T1hie need o,f a new building for the
p)urp)oses of the County's charity was
applarent, and 1no recommendation is
therefore made in regard to the repair
ing of the old building. The commit
tee thinks that more care should be
given to preserving the land by ter
racing or ditching.
An act of the Legisture, approved
December 22, ]SSS, p)rovides that the
the County Connmmissioners shall divide
the p)ublic roads of the county into dis
tricts of such size as they may deem
advantageous, and appoint an over
seer for each district and assi n hands,
es they miay see proper. Anu the said
Act further plrovides that the said Com
mlissionlers Ishall require all persons lia
ble to road duty to) work upon the
public roads not less than six nor more
than twvelve (lays in each year, and the
said Act directs the manner in which
all the roads are to be worked, and it
is miade the duty of the Comiriissioners
to eniforce the p)rov'sions o,f said Act,
and1( to see that each and every road is
worked in the way and manner direct
ed in said Act; and for refusal or neglect
to so (10 they shall be deemed guilty oif
a misdemeanor. There has evidently
been a great if not totail disregard oif
he prov'isiois of this Act. Comiplaints
conic to us from many secti'>ns of the
county that the roads are in bad con
dition; from sonme that they have not
been worked. The road ~fromi the
eleven-mile post to Bush River church
has not been worked this year. The
same report is mlade in regard t.o the
road leading from 'Wyse's Ferry to the
Graddick Ferry road. Here we have a:
law, a plain lawv, with no doubts as to
its prvsos whose provisions ha: .
not been carried out. Trhere has evi-.
dently been a neglect of duty under
this law'. Trhe responsibility should be

The Colunmbia Newberry, and Laurens Rail
The force of hands who have been
grading on the Columbia, Newberry,

here last week to .Jalapa where they
have commenced g;ading on the line
from tha t place to Newberry. The line
out of town has not been located. The
track has been completed to Newberry

that the roa(i from Newberry to Pros
perity was to have been received by
the railroad commission yesterday and
the schedule of trains will be an
nouinced in a few (lays.
The roadl is already doing a good
local b)usiness between here and Colum-.

G3eorgia Carolina and Northern, and
be ready for the fall business.
Newberry is destined soon to be the
railroad centre of this section.
