TIE POLL LISTS.
The Heorall and -News omi,let( this
week the publication of the poll lists of
the several townships. Tie polls of
No. 1 Township were published last
because before we began the publica
tion this list had already been furnished
the trustees, and it shows those who re
turned this year and those who were
on the books last year, but (lid not re
turn this year, and also a list of.uames
who are liable to pay a poll tax and
whose names are not on the books at
all. The object of getting up this list
and of publishing it is to find out if
there are any persons who are liable to
pay a poll tax and who have made no
return. The school trustees of the
various townships are charged with
the duty of examining the several lists
and reporting to the Auditor any such
names that may come within their
knowledge or observation.
The following table will show the
total polls as on the books last year and
the totals this year, with the gains or
losses, and the total gains:

The largest gain thi- year over last is

fewer polls than last year.
THE DUTCH FORK.
As announced last week by Dr. 0.
B. Mayor, Sr., The Herald and News
publishes this week the first sketch of
Dutch Fork. These sketches will be
found to be very i:lteresting, and in
structive and, as a e,ntribution to the
history of this seeti.>n of which he
writes, of incaleu!able value. Dr.Mayer
is eminently fitted to write of Dutch
Fork and takes great pleasure in doing
it. Every citizen of Newberry County
should feel enough interest in his coun
ty to have a pride in its history. These
sketches for the present will be pub
lishod exclusively in The Herald and
News, and if yon are not a subscriber
you should become one at once and
stop borrowing your neighbor's paper.
IND)USTRtIAL COLLEGE FOR~ WOMEN.
The Herald and News some time ago
spoke of the industrial college for
women, to be established at some point
in South Carolina, and called at
tention to the circular issued by the
commission appointed by Gov. Till
man to make investigation and report
to the Legislature. In this circular, if
we remember correctly, propositions
from towns and cities desiring this
school were invited. We 'suggested
that Newberry put in a bid, bu: so far
as we have heard that suggestion fell
flat without even a comment.
Well, it will be quite an addition to
any town to secure this school, and to
obtain it is worth making an efrort,
and even more, it is wvorth paying
sonme money, and so far as we can
see, Newberry has as many natural
advantages as any other town. We
are centrally located, good climate,
healthy, with good railroad facilities,
and there is no reason why we should
not have the school, ex':ept our inert
ness and inactivity and the unwilling
ness of those who have the means to
contribute something to obtain it.
Newvberry gave about $1->,00" to
secure Newberry College and nobody
can be found who regrets it or who
wvill gainsay the wisdom of the invest
ment. It was a good investment and
has paid the town wvell. Why would
not an investment to obtain this in
dustrial college for women pay equally
The Keowee Courier has been en
larged and otherni ise improved. It is
nearly a half century old, and we are
glad to note these evidences of pros.
perity with its advancing years, and
hope it may continue to thrive and
prosper as it deserves.

CoxMBIA, S. C., April 23.-Gen.
Wade Hampton arrived here from
MIississipp)i to-night, accompanied by
Mliss Hampton, and is at Wright's
Gen. Hampton was called on by this
correspondent and was asked if he
cared to say anything for piublication
on a choice of a great many subjects
with wvhich he is thoroughly familiar.
He said no; that he had nothing just
now of special interest except that it
gave him a great deal of pleasure to be
back again in South Carolina, and
especially with the near prospects of
visiting his friends and the Survivors
over in Augusta.
Gen.- H ampton also spoke with pleas
ant anticipation of the coming Centen

his Centennial oration. He wvill go
over to Millwood to-morrowv and wvill
probably be in Augusta early on Mon
G3en. Hampton was asked is he had
seen the report of a talk had wvith him
by Editor Fortune, wvhich has been
very widely copied. He said that lhe
ad seen it and that it was correct ex
cept in one particular. "I refer," he
said, "to the passage in which the inter
viewer makes me say that I am in fa
vor of free coinage of silver. On the
contrary I am opposed to it. I so
stated mny position at the time. What
I (id say~was that I, as did many other
Demiocrats, voted for it to secure sutli
cient opposition to kill the force bill,
which policy wvas successful."
Speaking of the free coinage of silver
and the sub-treasury matter Gen.
Hampton said that in his opinion they
would both either disappear before the
next Presidential campaign or would
not retain sufficient force in the popu
lar nmind to be important factors in the
determination of who should or should
iot be President.
Gen. Hampton also discussed very
clearly the relative chances of the men
who wvere now prominently mentioned
for the Presideney, and also touched
on political matters nearer home, on
which, although treated very signifi
cantly and interestingly, lhe said lhe
would prefer not to be qjuotedl for the

Death of 'von 31oltke.
BERLIN, April 24.-The death of
Field Marshal Count von Moltke has
jut been announced. Count von Moltke
attended the session of the Reichstag
this afternoon. His death was very
sudden, arid the physicians wvho were
summoned announced that it was
aused by failure of the heart. He died
at 9:45 p. ni., passing away quietly and
painlessly. The news of the Count's
unexpected death has caused great sor
row in this city.

October 26, 1800. He was educated in
the cadets' academy at Copenhagen,
and became an officer at 20.

The announcement that the Phos

raise the price of rock fifty cents a tor
caused a good deal of interest amont
persons who are not on the grounc
floor, so to speak.
As a matter of fact, however, the
price of the rock was raised some tim
ago, being forced up by the conditiot
of the market, owing to the legal con
plcations in the Coosaw case. The de
miand has been very large recently
and the mines have not been able tc
supply it. For the past three weeks of
a month crude rock has been sold, de

in the Interest of Monopoly'?
The Des Moines Homestead, of thf
10th inst. quotes applrovingly ebarges
made by President U. S. Hall, of the
Missouri State Alliance, to the effect
that Dr. C. W. Mlacune, the Chairmrar
of the National Legislative and Nation
al Executive Committees of the Far

and editor of The National Econo
mist, holds an annual free railroad
pass issued to him by the Richmond
Terminal Rail road (Jay Gould's road),
that although professedly a poor mar
and in debt for his home, he paid S:.,50C
in cash for an interest in "The South

and used that paper and his own per.
sonal influence to defeat a bill before
the Georgia Legislature prohibiting
the combination of comnpeting railroads
and to support for the United States
Senate from Georgia "Pat." Calhoun,
the general attorney of the Gould rail
road system of the South, and that
after Calhoun's defeat Dr. Macuine bor
rowed $2,u400 from him and gave him as
security for the "loan" warrants on the
National Treasurer of the Alliance.
The Hon2 estead says that corporate
interests have been served in the most
effective manner by the unceasing
efforts of D)r. Mlacunie and other leaders
to concentrate every reform movement

year-old son of William Bennett, a
prominent citizen, met a horrible death,
being burned to a crisp before his no
tier's eyes. Mrs. Bennett was sitting
on the front verandah, her little boy
trotting around on the verandah and
about the house. In his play the child
got hold of a box of matches, and,
lighting one, deliberately set fire to his
clothing. As it blazed he cried out in
childish glee, but a minute later, scared
by t[li hlaz, he ran screaming toward
his mother. When he reached her lie
was entirely enveloped in flames.
Quickly as possible ci,"se were extin

life. His flesh was baked, and he died
in a few hours.

Death Cau-dl lby a Cattislh.
[SpIartanburg, Herald 25th.]
A few days ago Mr. Smith, foreman
of the weaving room of Clifton Facto
ry, was stung on the thumb by the
fins of a catfish. Next day he went
about his work as usual and beyond
the little pain which usualiy accompa
nies the sting of this fish, no inconve
nience was felt. Next day, however,
the finger began to swell and the pain
increased. Very soon the wound began
to be dangerous and mortification set
in. yesterday he sent to this city for
several physicians. who went down to
amputate the man's arm. They found
it impracticable, as the mortification
covered the entire length of the arm,
and reached even the man's body. The
doctors left the m1an in a (lying condi
tion, with no earthly chance of reco
very, and hi has since died.
