A Peculiar' Accident on the Southern
Road at the Crossing
A rather peculiar accident happened
on the Southern road yesterday morn
ing, as a result of which several freight
cars were derailed at the crossing be
low the depot and one of the cars bad
ly damaged. As a north-bound freight
on the Southern was crossing the C.,
N. & L. track about 10 o'clock yester
day morning, for some reason unknown
one of the cars refused to follow the
lead of the car just aheAd, and instead
took the C., N. & L. track, forcing the
coupling loose and running up the C.,
N. & L. road several feet. Two of the
cars behind were derailed, one of them
violently pitching and standing almost
on end. A wrecking crew immediately
went to the scene and succeeded in
clearing the C., N. & L. track in a very
short time. At the time of the arrival
of the Southern's passengers at 1
o'clock the Southern track had not been
cleared, however, and the Southern's
trains were forced to use the C., N. &
L. track between Prosperity and New
The accident was very peculiar. Why
a car should fail to follow the car in
front and strike off in another direction
on a diverging track is not known by
railroad officials.
Freight traffic on the Southern was
delayed several hours.

The Commissioners of Public Works Make
a Statement to the Citizens
of Newberry.
Newberry Observer, 30th.
Editor Observer: Wil you please
publish the accompanying statement
from the board of public works to the
citizens, giving the public an opportunity
to read the same without its being sand
wiclied between editorial comments -
such as editors usually treat their cor
res)ondents with the courtesy of plac
ing in the editoi ial coliumn--and repor
ter's interviews and the reply of the
mayor. The comimunication of tle
board was handed last week to the
mayor in the olice of The i ierald and
News, with the request that a reply
from him be printed in connection there
with. But beyond a reply from the
mayor over his own signature, there
was a breach of courtesy in the manage
ment of the paper in prefacing this
communication with editorialcomments
and reporter's statements.
Such treatment, Mr. Editor, induces
us to ask of you the simple publishing
of the accompanying statement to the
citizens, so that we may have a fair
hearing before the pnblic, though we
do not ask of you to refrain from any
editorial comments you may see fit to
make, as such criticism is deemed an
editor's privilege on all matters pub
lished in his paper.
Yours respectfully,
The Commissioners of the Board of
Public Works.
To the Citizens of Newberry: Your
board of public works, having requested
the council to furnish funds needed for
necessary improvements on the water
works plant, and the council replying
that there were no funds at their com
mand which could be applied to this
work, the board makes this statement
of the exigencies of the case, so that
the citizens mny understand the real
condition and the urgent need of the
city for an extension of the reservoir
supply of water, as well as an increase
in the capacity of the pumping machin
ery of the plant.
The capacity of the present pumip is
200,000 gallons of water in twenty-four
hours. The standpipe holds280,000 gal
lons, and the present reservoir can be
depen.ded on for 50,000 gallons. So,
after pumping everything full, we have
330,000 gallons to start the day with.
Du:ing the hot, dry spell last summer
140,000 gallons were consumed in one
day, when to avoid all waste consumers
were requested to use water meters
where lawn sprinklers and bath tubs
were used they were required to do so.
This season when in full use the sewer
system will use 20,000 gallons daily for
the automatic flushing of the sewers,
besides the water required for use in
the Water-closets, and the general con
sumption of water by individuals and
the mills is larger than last year, and
will considerably increase the estinuate
as made for last reason's elieds..
These figures showv that the daily use
of wvater is nearly equalizing the <daily
capacity, and there is no reserve supply
to fall back uplon in case of an accidlent
to the p)ump)ing machinem y.
With a serious accident and stoppage
of the puimping machinery for three
(lays the city would not have a drop of
water for dIrinking purposes or lire pro
tect.ion. With a reservoir holding 600,
000 gallons a reserve sup)ply of water
could be accumulated to guard against.
such a contingency. This reservoir
wvouldl cost $3,000O and, while it wvould
relieve the present pressure in that
direction, should be followed the next.
season by the p)urchiase and installment
of an air pump, which would cost $1,
300O, wvith an estimatedi cap)acity of pump
ing 300,000 gallons of wvater in twenty
four hours. The present pump has
been running continuously for six years,
and is beginning to show some wear
from constant use, and more than once,
from some temp)orary breakage, has
been out of use for twenty-four hours.
But wvith the careful attention given it
wve hope it wvill answver all dlemands fom
the present. The urgent needl is a new
reservoir, though if the city had thc
means it would he good policy to en
large the electr'c light plant; and the
board can only say that the giving o:
addit. nal lights to the city wvill lie dlont
as soon as the more p)ressing needh
have been attended to.
The finance committee of the council,
Messrs. Brown, Morris, and Smith, me1
wvith the board on JTune 25th, and eon
sidleredl first the feasibility of an addi
tional tax levy, then t.he issuing o
bonds1(1 to (10 this work, but finally agreer
that the best plan would be to increas<
the rates on light and water twenty
five p)er cent. as this, it is hoped, wil
within twvelve months enab)le the h>oar,
t to see their way to building the reser
voir. And in explanation as to thi
decision to increase the rates charge<
for lights and wvater, it might be we]
to say that we have as good wvater ani
- as goodl lights as any city and pay les
a for them than is paid generally. Fo
'instance, our town rate is $70 per ar
t light of 2,000 candle p)ower. Greenvilli
pays $95 per arc light, of 1,200 candli
powver up t.o 103 are lights and then $8i
perm arc light for all lights above I00
g Grpenville pays $40) per water hydran
r for all hydrant.s up to 100, and then $21
per" hydrant for all over that num mber
Newberry has 84 hydrants and ha
never paid a dollar for one of them
(I If Newherr'y were paying Greenvlm\ille'
prices, insteadi of paying yearly $4,1I2t
she would b)e p)aying for lights an,
,t water $8,110.
r~ Th board has triedl to g.ive Newherr
- hemr water andl lights at. as near act ur
(I cost as we (could( estimate for, as w
where a revenue would be realized only 'I
to turn it back into the treasury; for e
our idea has been a small revenue m-eans i
economy and a large revenue leads to ii
uselesi expense. f
And now, having used all economy 1<
possible in the maintenance of the plants I
an-l it becomes necessarv to raise prices
in order that improvements may be li
made to insure the health of the city i:
and properly protect our city against o
fire, the board will ask of the citizens e
a fair, impartial consideration of the D
existing Conditions, the diflicilties to be y
miet in surmounting thei and their 11
hearty and generous support, if success c
is to attend the proper improvement of ,11
their own property.

The Reporter's Side of The Question
Sonic "Breaches of Courtesy"
In The Past.
Editor Herald and News: I hand
you herewith a communication which I
have asked the Observer to use in its
issue of the same (late. Evidently, the
Commissioners have been offended..
They have been offended deeply. They
have been offended by an articale writ
ten by me in the cal.,ity of a reporter
for The Ilerald and News.
But, Mr. Editor, even in the deep;
gloom in which The Herald and News
ollice has been enshrouded because it,
has offended the Commissioners-even
in the midnight gloom in which we
stand, there is matter for congratula
tion. The Commissioners, while their
dignity was sore, gave a statement to
the public. Star-chamber proceedings
were abandoned and the very courteous
Commissioners took the public into their
confidence. A little offending accom
plished what Thle Herald and News has
long been working for. Mr. Editor, I
offer you my congratulations. True,
this statement was printed in only one
of the city papers, and was introduced
by an attack on The Herald and News
and on a lone reporter, but it was a
statement, and a statement to the citi
zens of Newberry, nevertheless.
I ask you to print the following com
mu1nication to the Observer, explaining
my conduct in the matter of theoffense
which the volirteous Commissioners
Jno. K. A -Al.
1-ditor Observer: In the last issue of
your paper, there was published a state
ment from the Commis.sioners of Public
Works to the citizens of Newberry.
Prefacing this statement, was an arti
ele, signed by the Commissiones, asking
you to publish the statement, "giving the
public an opportunity to read the same
without its being sandwiched between
editorial connents-su.ch as editors
usually treat their corres)ondents withi
the c'ourtesy of placing in the editorial
cloumn -and( reporter's interviews and
the reply of' the mayor'. '' Inasmuch as
the si atemnent from the Commissioners
which is prefacedl by this article was
not lur'nished The Herald and News
(although the Commissioner's arie but
p)ublic' serv'ants and Th'le EIerak(l and
Newvs is one of the two publ)ic organs
a Newherry) , andl inasmuch as there
is late cin i the article a. referencwe to The
Illerald and News oflice, I sup.pose the
C'ommiss;ioners mean to say th'at they
think they wereC treated with dis comi tosy
by an article wvhich appeared in the
issue of Th'e Herald andl News cif June
'That article, if that be the article
meant, was wvritten by me. On Mon
da~y morning beflore the issue c.f the
p)aper', M ayor J) no. W. 10arhard t hi anded
meW a cop of a letter from him rej'lying
to a communication from the Comcmis
sionersi' of Publie Works. I asked him
for a~ copy of the communication, and
at his request, Al r. TP. 0. Stewvart iurn
ished me a copy. That communication
exp)lainedl former request of the Board
for an appr)1opr1iaitioni from city council,
and called attention to tIhe "pjressinlg
need'(s'" of the city for' the impllrovemenl ts
wvhich the Commissioners dlesiredl to
make with thle money which they asked
Council to appropriate. This suggestedl
the head-line, ''Commissioners Want
Money. " The relly of the Mayor sim
p)ly stated that Counmcil could not raise
the tax levy for th e improvements de-'
sir'ed, because t.he ''tax levy is already
. as high as it can be made."' I asked
the Mayorn for an exp)lanationl of his
I reply and he kindlly anlsweredl the (hues
tions which I atske~d. This wvas printed
.. because I thought it explained the posi
I tion of Council in. the matter' of a refusal,
I and it was given the pr'ominlent plact
- in the picture b)ecaulse I thought it

'heir communicationl *as t to the
itizens. It was a persogl l'tt to the
ame Mayor whose intetvie* they term
"reporter'g' Interview" 6nd it was
urnished Thei Herald and News, at
Last, not by tllhe Comissionbrs, but
y the Mayor, to- whom It was addressed.
I challenge aiuy man to produce a
ie in the article referred to, in which
i expressed any opinion by the reporter,
r by the paper. True, the Mayor did
xpress an opinion, and for asking the
Iayor for his opinion, I have no apolo
ies to offer. I believed then, and still
old, that the Mayor has a right to
xplain his own position, and that he
Iso has the ri ht publicly to express
ny opinion which he may holdconcern
ng a matter affecting the cIty's inter
Perhaps if the Commissioners had
aken this reporter in hand and given
iim a few lessons he would have learned
;o distinguish between courtesy and the
cind of "breach of courtesy" which
;he Commissioners find in the article
eferred to, and their dignity would not
lave been offensded (however unwitt
ngly) by him. 'This same reporter was
iotified on an <occasion last year by
Superintendent Boyd that there would
je a public meeting of the Commis
iioners, and Superintendent Boyd ex
Lended him an invitation to attend the
meeting. le went As soon as the
meeting was called ito or<ter the chair
inan of the Copmmissioners asked him
Lo leave, because matU-rs would posibly
be discussed which it .would not be ad
visable for the public to know of. The
reporter left. lie felt .then, and feels
tow, that if puj&. officem desire to
engage in a disc uon in .regard to pub
ic matters which it is not,advisable for
Lhe people to hear, 'that thei, .showed
nio discourtesy in asking the represen
tative of'a newspaper to leave, although
their Secretary had e xtended him an
invitation to be presen t.
When the Commissioners met with
the finance committee on lst Friday
afternoon, they request(d three mem
bers of the committee to met with
them and ignored the Mayor, who il
ex-ofiicio a member of all com, nitteeE
from Council. The Mayor tot k nc
offense. At the time I was rathe r in
clined to .the belief that the honor. abh
Commissioners had been guilty of a ra th
er large "breach of courtesy." But it 's
plain now. They could have meant nt
"breach of courtesy," because if they
deemed it a "breach of courtesy" to be
placed in the same column in a public
newspaper with the Mayor in connection
with the same public imatter, they
would not want him to attend one of
their meetings. Under such circum
stances, the Commissioners, forsooth,
displayed no "breach of courtesy'' in
ignoring the Mayor.
The Commissioners have never hand
ed The Ilerald and News a public com
munication emanathig from them. The
Herald and News has always been
forced to secure such communications
from those to whom they are addressed.
We of The Herald and News office, how
euer, have long since learned that the
Commissioners (10 not wvant rep)resenta
tives of newvspapers to attend their offi
cial meetings, and we 1.. been under
the inmpression that . y did not
dlesire their communications p)rinted.
It has alwvays seemecd to be their policy
to keep from the public everything
poss5ible, evenl though it should be the
public's businecss. Under these circum
stances, we felt that there had been nc
"breach of courtesy,'' and their com
muntications, being matters of news, w(
secured in the beOst manner p)ossible.
The Illeral and News knows that i1
was showvn no discourtesy by the Coin
missionors in that their statement t<
the citizens was not furnished it, be
cause, perhaps, tihe Commissioner
thought it might -be 'sandwiched be
tween editorial comments and reporter'
interviews"; and ini the Observer the:
knewv it would be0 madle secondary onl;
to an attack uplonl an unassuming re
p)orter for having interviewed1 th
Mayor, andl therein treated the Comn
miissioners "discourteously."
The reporter knows that the Commit
sioners are courteous gentlemen. HI
has hadl abundant opp)ortunity to ol
serve this fact, and to these courteot
gen'tle'men, he apologizes for any ai
par ent discourtesy shown them.
Mr. Editor, in justice to myself all
to PTe Herald and News, which
r'epresenitedl in writing the article r<
ferred to, I ask that you will publis
this communication.
