NEWBERRY. S. C.
THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1891 OUR HOME CRITICS. "Our own arch. It was a bad botch." . "The descriptive circulars xwere not what they ought to have been" . . . .. "There might be other riticisms, but they could do no good," says the Observer about Newberry's rch atThe Centennial, and the descrip tine circulars printed and distributed at the same time, and also printed in The Herald and News last week. The Herald and News would like to know what good this much criticism -has done. Newberry's arch was not elaborate, nor what it should have been, nor what it was contempiated to be ;but there is no need now of this criti cism. The arch was not so terribly .;bad either. As to the descriptive cir cular The Herald and News thinks it - was a very creditable circular, and cer tainly compared favorably in style, matter and general get up with those distributed by other counties. But then there is no "disputing about tastes" apd some people will find fault = and complain at anything that is done. What Newberry needs is not a spirit fault finding and criticism with ev 2 ery effort for the advancement of the town, but for every one to do his part d pull together for the progress and developement of the town. The Observer generally says what it thanks and The Herald and News ad hires this spirit, but when fault find -ing and criticism do no good what's -the use of it. e descriptive circulars were gener istributed inColumbia and elicited .gene co ' bree rom - nent daily papers spoke in complimen .tary terms of them, and in fact the on ,: ly adverse criticism that The Herald and News has heard, comes from our cotemporary, the Observer. We are glad to believe that the De mocracy is good enough for the white people of South Carolina. They do ? not want a third party. But the c trouble is going to be that each of the - two factious now in the State is going to claim to represent the Democratic party, and each is going to call the other Independent, and all sorts of things. We should get together, but instead the signs of the times indicate that we are getting further apart. There is needed in South Carolina a spirit of tolerance. There is too great a tendency among certain of our would be-leaders to suppress the freedom of speeeb, unless that freedom puts you in line with them and all their wild teachings. Let us have more tolera tion, more regard for the opinions and views of each other; stop thinking and saying hard things of each other, and ques"tioning one another's motives; force into retirement all leaders who by word or action would stir up strife. Let us remember that we are white men and brethren, and that all true inen among us desire the welfare of all the people. Let us get together, then, -andi discuss our differences, but let us do it lte men. Governor Tillman's head is level on -a good many things, and he generally says what he thinks. He'is wrong, -according to The Herald and Newvs, on some things, but he is right on the sub treasury scheme, and now on the third party craze he expresses himself with no uncertain sound. According to the Record he says: "I am a Democrat. I was born a Democrat and I expect to die a Democrat. It would be idiocy as -well as suicide for the Southern people to follow such leadership. The ulti matum as to the negro shows what we may expect from any sneh affiliatio*n." *State Lecturer Talbert declined to be interviewed on the subject saying that he had announced his platform and that he stood squarely upon it. He ex pects to do a great deal of stump speak ing on the issues of the day during the coming summer. Governor Tillman is right on this question and has with him the great majority of the white people of South Carolina. This seems to be a time and a year for calling people names at long range and putting these epithets in the shape of resolutions. Newspapers that give circulation to such mud-slinging are not elevating to the moral ton'e of the community ; neither are they perform ing their duty in the higher sphere of journalism. If persons have personal difficulties let them face each other like men and settle them among them selves. South Carolina had no representative at Cincinnati to help in forming the Third Party or Peoples Party. That is strange for we ha.ve more things done in South Carolina in the name of -'the people'" than any other State in the union. If not then we pity that other place. But the great mass of the white people of South Carolina are sat isfied with the Democratic party. The Lauress Herald finds a great many things in the Columbia Centen nial to frighten it. The Herald seem.s to think that it was a Hampton Ceii .tennialand gotten up to to m Hamp ton politically. It is a great pity some people can't see anything but polttics. If Brotlher Crews had gone to (Colurm bia and gazed upon the beautiful areb from Laurens, and mingled with the people there assembled, he possibly would have had his views broadened and he could have seen something else besides politics. Wade Hampton does not need any boom, and the people who love him for what he has done and what he is, will continue to show him honor and re spect, even though the Laurens Hemald does see something in it to frighten politicians.______ >on. Ben. Terrell will speak at Ab lant n of edi ngressmen, officers being of ting free passes from He says one object of the article is to pay a tribute to Con gressman Alexander of North Caroli na who was offered and declined a free pass, and the other is to inquire if any of our Congressmen or State officers are now the recipients of such favors from any of the railroads. He says he will keep a column open and standing "for the purpose and invite our Congress men, as well as members of the Legis lature and State officers who have re fused to accept free passes to send us their names." The Herald and News does not be lieve brother Stokes will have any need to reserve a column for this purpose, for when he gets all his information in he will find that the whole posse of State officials are enjoying the luxury of a free pass, some of them for them selves and families. But- what's the use of making a fuss about it. They all do it. But prosecute your investi gation and you will find that all our State officers ride on free passes. Now about the Congressmen we have no definite information, except that we understand that Cougressman Johnstone has declined to accept a free pass, and this statement is made with out his knowledge or consent. But you will find some of these gentleman using free passes too. But where is the harm Mr. Cotton Plant? Let these gentlemen have a good time if they want to. They are in the thing to make out of it all they can and let them proceed. Now we want the Cotton Plant to re member that The Herald and News is not on the witness stand and does not prpose, at present. k"daaduce further evidence, but we say to the Cotton Pla proceed with your in vestigat and you will find that mnos : ot all, of our State officers ride passes, and that legislators, 'PWipo But it h. always been thus and why now make a fuss about it. By the way it might be well for the Cotton Plant to tell us whether the State Senator from Orangeburg Cc3nty is the recipient of a free pass from the railroads, as he wants information from Legislators as well as Congressmen. The Columbia police have run upon a gang of negro youths, from seven to ten years old, who have been banded together for the purpose of stealing and robbery. There are fourteen in the gang and they have styled themselves the "Jesse James gang." They have been operating in Columbia about nine months. ABOUT A SECOND TERM. The boom against the present admin istration for 1892 is evidently on, but it goes slow.-Bamberg Advertiser. How long has it been announced that the present administration was in the race for reelection in 1892? Has it come to pass that an official act of the :resent administration cannot be criti ised without it being construed into opposition to the administration? There are a few rabid administration sheets in South Carolina that are try ing very hard to keep up the strife and warfare of last summer and that twist everything into opposition to the ad ministration. The candidates for 1892 have not yet been announced. But the Bamberg Advertiser finds several things in the Columbia centen nial that it magnifies into opposition to the administration. It thinks the reuion of the Haiinpton Legion in Au gusta a short time ago, and the Colum bia centennial were all manipulated against a second term for the present administration, and that the proposed reunion of Butler's Brigade tends that way. A man can generally find what he looks for. But if the administra tion has such a hold on the people as its ardent organs claim for it, we see no use of all this scare. The editor of The Herald and News happened to be in Columbia during the whole of the cen tennial, and he saw nothing, politi cally speaking, to so frighten the ad ministration. The State officers had every attentioni, and those of them with, whom we talked spoke in very flattering terms of the success of the celebration. If the present administration meets the approval of the people, it will very likely secure a second term if it desires t. If it does not meet that approval, the people will very probably say so, and there is no use for these adminis tration papers to become so frightened at so early a date. Keep cool brethren, the summer heat is just beginning and there is no use yet for you to tear your shirt. DR. GRIFFIN GOES OUT. Dr. P. E. Griffin has been removed! from the Asylum, as Superintendent, and Dr. Thompson, has been appointed as his successor temporarily. The per manent successor has not yet been named. The Herald and News, is of the same opinion as expressed last week, that Dr. Griffin has not been fairly dealt with. He ough t to have been a llowed to meet the witnesses against him face to face and hear the evidence and reply to it. This was not done. The evidence was taken in secret and was only an ex parte hearing. If the Governor and the in vestigating committee wanted the facts, and that is what they ought to have desired, they should have heard both sides. s it not a fact that the investigation by the committee as first made and the report to the Governor, was to the effect that they found the management all right, and that Governor Tillman, called the Committee together, again and attended the investigation in per son, ar'e the second investigation is the one' r which the Governor deposed Dr. Griuin. But Dr. Griffin is out, and it is very important that an efficient and experi enced man be appointed as his succes Would it not be a good idea-to take a rest from politics now? Lets talk about farming, or devote a little time to our schools and colleges. But this is a strange year, and noveij BANKS AND RAILROADS. "It is estimated that the raising of the assessments on railroads and banks in this State will amount to nearly $25,000,000, which if not reduced will add about $100,000 to the taxes of the State." The above is from the Columbia cor respondence or the News and Courier. The banks and the railroads will enter a very lively protest -against such a large increase in their assessments. It would make no difference to them if all 6ther property was increased in value in the same ratio, because then the rate of taxation would be lower. But it does not appear just right to in crease these returns wLen every one knows that real estate and nearly all personal property is returned at much below its market value. The truth of the matter is that it is a very difficult thing to tell just what the market va lua of property is. Mr. Ellerbe says that his purpose is to increase the assessments of all pro perty to its market value and he hopes to gettheILegislatuie at its next session to order a reassessment of real estate for taxation, and if it is not done then he will recommend a rebate to the rail roads and banks. But why not wait and let the re assessments of real estate, and the in crease in the banks and railroads, all come at once. There needs to be some thing done in the matter of assess ments and the start must be made, but the present looks very much like an attack on corporations to meet popu lar approval. This $100,000 will be needed very likely to fill up a deficiency from phosphate royalty, but then let this increase all come at once, and let all the citizens and taxpayers stand on equal ground. The Evening Record, in giving a record of removals, should not be so surprised. It is always thus. Some thing must be done to meet the prom ises of last year. The Herald and News does not object to changes. But change is not always reform. TheU Z,* Committee Thanks The To the Editor of The Herald 'and News:-Your kindly reference in "The Herald and News," issue of the 21st, tc the Newberry arch at the Columbis Centennial was very pleasant and reassuring to the committee, having the matter in charge. I desire publicly tc allude to the pleasure afforded us it noting your appreciation of the efforte put forth by us. I may say your word. were "fitly spoken," and appeared to us therefore "like apples of gold in pictures of silver," in contrast with the unseemly spirit of fault-finding that actuated some hypercritical spectators, who con demned the appearance of the arch be fore the arch was completed. With the resources at command the committee did the best it could, and strove earnestly to advance the best interests of the Town and County, and has cause for believing that some good will eventuate from the labors expend ed. I desire in return to comphment you for the fine public spirit displayed in yielding so much of your space as was necessary to publish in full the pamphlet, several thousand copies.o~ which were distributed among the visi tos at Columbia. That pamphlet, de scriptive of New berry's resources, was circulated freely and called forth only the highest praise and commendation, so far as we have heard. - Some have said, that New berry was the best and most judiciously advertis ed county in the State. The work ol distribution was well attended to by the write'r, by personal superintend ence, so much so as denied him the pleasure of hearing that grand old Ro man Wade Hampton in his centennmal oration. And for the benefit of thosE who condemn and abuse right and left, regardless of others' opinions, let us commemd the "gude" advice of Robbie Burns and the pleasant expressions which I quote further on. "C) wad some power the giftie gie us To see oursels as others sEE Us! It waa frae monie a blunder free us, And foolish notion." I attach great value to the opinions which follow, as they prove the "fool ish notion" that some have that New berry's arch was a disgrace and a failure. Col. F. W. McMaster, the hon ored Mayor of Columbia writes to me. "There were arches inferior to that of New berry, but of course we were grate ful to all. :t was the fellowship we prized anid not the amount of money spent on the decoration." High au thority to be sure. This will bear read ing twice, as it shows "oursels as others see us." That prince cf correspondents, M. F. Tighe of the Charleston News and Cou rier, wrote to his paper about the pam phlets as follows: "Sumter has done wonders in the way of advertising, all of which has been read with interest, but she has found a worthy competitor, in New berry. Yesterday thousands of little pamphlets were circulated among the visitors in which the advantages of Newberry City and Newberry County were attractively set forth." And the Charleston World and the The State likewise had comsplimentary notices of the pamphlets. In addition to what is given above. we cherish as well the golden opinion of those at home who have spoken so favorably of them. However, "There are people of different opinions, Some say onions, some say Iions." W. E: PELHAM. NOTES FROM EXCELSIOR. Our farmers are moving right along with work. A good portion of the cotton crop in this neighborhood has been hoed. Mr. Wmn. Werts, of Saluda, spent Saturday night in this community.

A Fountain Pen for 10Oc. At the the Bookstore. , ly. 7 ~ - LIVELY EFISODE IN LAURENS. Reported Interview Between Professors Evans and McElroy Regarding that Baskell Invitation. [Greenville News, 24th.] Laurens had a breezy sensation on Friday, if the reports that reach here are correct. Some time ago Professor Evans, principal of the Laurens male academy, invited Col. A. C. Haskell, of Columhsa, to deliver an address be fore the school. The invitation caused much talk in Laurens and Professor W. T. McElroy, of Laurens County, well kno^"n here, wrote an article in the Laurensville Herald severely criti cizing Professor Evans and making statements which that gentleman considered untrue and injurious. Pro fessor Evans did not reply, but Friday he met Professor McElroy on the streets. The occurences that followed are reported as told to a News reporter yesterday : Professor Evans asked Professor Mc Elroy if he was responsible for the statements, and the latter answered af firmatively. "You'll have to retract them," quiet ly said Professor Evans. "You are not going to attack me?" queried Professor McElroy. "I mean what I say," spoke Profes sor Evans. !'You'll have to retract those statements." Professor McElroy said -that he was unarmed, whereupon Professor Evans told him to go and arm himself and he would wait for him where he was standing. Professor McElroy went away and did not return. Professor Evans searched for him and found him in J. T. -Roland's hardware store. "Have you armed yourself?" Professor Evans asked. "No." It is said that Professor McElroy then drew a knife. Professor Evans raised a walking cane and sternly com manded Professor McElroy to put the weapon oack in his Docket. This was done, and Professor McElroy again said he was unarmed. Professor Evan, told him to get a pistol from Mr. Holland and if he would not, he would buy it for himi. Professor McElroy refused to get weapon, and Professor Evans brought matters to a crisis by ordering paper, pen and ink and having it put before Professor McElroy. "Now write--and retract the false statements yvh have made," said Pro fessor Evas, and Professor McElroy obeyed,The retraction was written to suitT rofessor Evans, signed proper I and then the two men separated, rd ' - Fan,aki e retraction tot - ffice It is said that Pr ried only a cane an weapon on his persty the affair passed throi5* before reaching he told in this city. \., OUR PROSPERIT , Rev.

Mrs. Martha Kibler, Forest Kibler and Hampton Kinard, all in one house have fever. The cause seems to be entirely local. The later showers, followed by warm weather, have greatly improved the stands of cotton, and given all kinds of vegetation quite a start. The burial of Mrs. Mower at Pros. perity cemetery, was very largely at. tended by the citizens of this place. She had a warm place in the hearts of many children here as well as the adult population.

A circular letter has been received from Prof. D. B. Johnson, Chairman of the Executive Committee of State Teachers' Association, announcing the meeting at Anderson and stating that entertainment has been provided. The letter is published in full on the first page of The Herald and News. What better inducements could teachers want than the ones offered? The expenses of the trip will be only nominal. Only the railroad fare need be taken into consideration. Teachers, it is your duty to attend the Associa tion, and besides being a duty it will be a pleasure. It is to be hoped that at least twenty teachers will be at An derson from Newberry County. Such an opportunity may not soon be offered again. Trustees Meeting. The schooi trustees of the county will be expected at Newberry on the 2nd Saturday in June. They should come prepared to give their views on the different questions concerning the pub lic schools. They ought to know exact ly the condition of the schools under their charge and should be ready to tell what is neaded for their improve ment. I know that there are many things that impair the efficiency of our scnools in the country, but I also know that they can be made better and more efficient if they should receive that attention and thought that they so justly deserve. At the meeting In June let us try to devise some means to improve not the system so much, but the proper execution of the system. We should not say that our schools are doing as well as could be expected, when there is some room yet for im provement. About Grammar. A few days ago a certain teacher of the county while iiscu.aing the worth of English Grammar in our schools, and the best methods of teaching it, took issue with most of our text books when he doubted the correctness of the sentence: "I feel bad." He argued in this way: "bad" is never used as an ad verb, "badly" being the correct form. In the sentence, does not bad tell how Ifeel? And if it tells how I feel is it not a modifier of feel? And if it is a modifier of feel is it not correct? It seems to me that wherever the idea of being is most prominent in the verb that the adjective form and not the adverbial should be used. Suppose we take the sentence: "He remained si lent," and in place ' e a .. full progra lish but can say ne - well, and that the visitors wer pleas' d with the exercises. The school has closed until July, when it will open again. Miss Crooki is doing very good work in our school, and the patrons seem to appreciate it What should-it be Called? Considerable discussion is being ear ried ob in the-newspaperd as to wha1 the "War between the States" shoul<c be called. The State Supt. of Educa inbists that it be calld the "Statei Rights War." This seems to me to bi a rather poor name, and to indefinite. It would have been a state rights wai had all the Southern States remained and fought under the same flag as the Northern States. They did not d< this, however, but seceded from the Union and endeavored too establish their independence as a distinct repub' lic. It was then beyond doubt a war for independence, and not so mu~ch foi states rights because the Southern States by the act of secession were nc longer a part of the Union and there fore could claim no rights in the Union. The News and Courier, then wai right when it calls the contest, "Th4 War for Southern Independence." Il matters not however what the war be called in our school histories. We al. know the causes of it, and can explair them to the pupils. County Assoeiation. The Association will meet at New berry on the 1st Saturday, and teach es must not forget the change of the time. We hope to have as many o2 more teachers present than at the lasi meeting.
