TO SUCCEED NORTON AS
There was much uncertainty ail of
yesterday morning as to what Comp?
troller General Norton was going to do
about resigning bis State office, having
reoeived his certificate of election as a
member of congress. Mr Norton,
wheo seen, could not tell what he was
going todo; io fact it was hard to tell
whether Mr. Norton knew anything at
all about the matter He would have
QOthicg whatever to Ray about the mat?
ter one way dr the other. Gov. .El?

nothing about-Mr. Norton's intentions,
but reasserted that he was 'then ready
to announce tbe appointment of Mr
Norton's successor, and would do so the
moment he received the resignation of
It vas joit as Gov. Ellerbe was leav?
ing the state capitol, about 215
o'clock, wben Mr. Norton's resignation,
a very matter of fact paper, was hand?
ed to him. It was, of course, at ooee
accept sd, and tbe governor returned to
bis office. In a very short time Gov.
Ellerbe announced that Mr. L. P. Epton
the present auditor of Spartaoburg
county, bad been appointed to succeed
Mr. Norton as comptroller general.
This announcement created oo surprise,
for it had been generally coooeded that
the governor bad selected this gentle?
man to fill the vacancy in bis cabinet.
The only surprise was that this appoint?
ment did not cause tbe surprise that
Gov. Ellerbe had tbs day before pre?
dicted it would. The governor having
made this appointment, then proceeded
to appoint Mr. Eber Breoton^o succeed

Tt is supposed that tbe new comptrol?

turn the office over to him. The new
man comes in at a time he will find
plenty of work to do, inasmuch as the
annual reports are now being made up,

man. His first appearance io public
life was when be was elected auditor of

HAD BECOME A'CONVICT
Having Murdered His Neigh?
bor-Idea of Life Term in
a Cell Was Too Much
One night in a felon's cell in th?
State penitentiary with the prospect
oi spending the remainder of his
life within those massive stone walls
and grated doors and windows
proved too mach of a strain for
Stephen Bryant, a white convict who
had just been received at the prison,
to stand, and he has ended his life
He secreted a pair of scissors about
bis person while working in the ho
siery mill on Thursday and daring
Thursday night he plunged them
into bis neck twice, fell over on . the
floor ead died His life blood qaick
ly flowed, out through the gaping
wounds he had made. The guards
discovered him jnst as he was breath
ing his last. The body lay as it was
.found on the cell floor, making a
ghastly picture, until yesterday
morning when the coroner went
down to the prison and gave a per?
mit for the removal of the body. The
story of the unfortunate man who has
th as died by bis own hand rather
than face a life term in prison is a
. . Only a short time ago Bryant was
ilving quietly upon his farm in Ma
rion county ; close by lived another
white farmer named Prevatt. It
seems that one day Bryant's 12 year
old brother in law went over to visit
Prevatt Uffcn going home be told
Bryant stories about the domestic
affairs of Prevatt When Prevatt
heard of it he warned the boy, who
later came to see him again and once
more told tales. Then Prevatt gave
the boy a moderate whipping. This
made Bryant very angry and getting
his gun he rode over to where Pre?
vatt was working in his field. He
called him np and asked him why be
had whipped the boy. Prevatt fully
explained tbe matter.
"Will yon do so again ?" demand?
"If he gives me the same provoca
tion." was the cool reply.
"Then take that, and that," scout?
ed Bryaot as be discharge' first one
and then the other barrel . his gun
at the head of Prevatt, almost tear?
ing it off and killing him instantly. ,
At the trial, which took place in
Marion and was ended last week, the
evidence against Bryant was over?
whelming, but on account of ^tbe
plea of unsound mind, Which was
worked for all it was worth by the
counsel for Bryant, the jory, while
while finding Bryant guilty, eaw fit
to recommend him to the mercy of
the court, thereby securing a life
sentence for him instead of giving
him death upon the scaffold.
Bryant was brought here to begin
bis life term in prison on Wednes
day He was put to work in the
boisery mill and given a comfortable
cell in the main building He man
aged to get through Weduesday
night in hie cell, and on Thursday
appeared to be passive and resigned
to his fate. He had then determined,
however, to kill himself, for he
watched his chalice during the day
and slipped a pair cf scissors into his
jacket while working in the mill.
At 5:30 o'clock he was sent to hie
cell for the night Nothing more
was heard or thought of him until
10:30 o'clock at night At night a
"key man," a trusty convict, is kept
in the corridor inside the main cage,
to attend to the wants of the prison
ers during the night in case they are
sick or anything of that kind.- On
Thursday night Convict Hunter was
on this duty. In answering a call
from one of the cells he had to pass
by the cell occupied by Bryant. He
heard a strange gurgling sound in
the cell and notified the guard.
Corporal Smith came quickly and
the cell was opened A revolting i
scene was presented On the floor
lay Bryant breathing his last ; the
body lay in a pool of the man's life
blood, which was still flowing from a
gaping wound on the left side of his
neck. He died in a very few mo
I merits Still tightly clinched in his
hand weie the scissors with which
he had ended his earthly career.
Straightening the body out the cor
poral and the guards once more locked
the door and left the building to
await the coining of day. Then
Coroner Green was notified and in a
short time he was at the prison He J
entered the cell and saw enough to
convince him that it was a case of |
self destruction and that it was not j
necessary to hold au inquest Ac?
cordingly, he granted a permit for
the burial of the body and it was re?
moved to the prison morgue-?tate

GOV. ELLERBIE'S ORIG?
INAL PACKAGE CRU?
The state i's not satisfied with the
effective concesson it secured from
the railroads in getting them to boy
cot the 0. P. shops and refuse their
loose shipments, but has come down
on the wagons and will hold up and
seize all wheeled vehicles drawn by
horse, mule or other animals which
carry liquor to and supply the 0. P.
The governor takes the position
that wagons and like vehicles are not
common carriers in the legal sense of
that phrase and cannot therefore
transport liquor into this state under
Judge Simonton's decision as the
railroads are allowed to do.
So the interesting question has
been brought up now as to whether
or not a wagon is not as much o a
common carrier as a steamed vehicle.
This knotty legs! question will have
to be cracked by the courts and in
its cracking much litigation is likely
to be brought about.
Since wagons and such like vebi
des were less than a century ago the
only "carriers** on land, to show
how they have been superceded by
the law as to railroads will probably
prove interesting and intrudive.
Such a question has likely never
been raised before in this country,
and around its solution will centre
the deepest interest

Roads at Half -the Cost.
Written for thc Epitomiat nod pab?i?bed by
Having traveled over a good part
of Wisconsin the past winter attend?
ing farmers' institutes, and the ques?
tion of good roads coming np at
nearly every meeting, I have bad
some opportunity to learn how the
payment of the road tax in cash com?
pares with the old way of working it
out or paying it in labor. I notice
that it is very much like every other
reform in that it meets the greater
opposition from the ones it is most
intended to benefit. There seems to
be a very prevalent idea that the
good roads movement is intended en?
tirely to benefit bicycle riders, and
that at the expense of the farmer.
The ones who make the greatest ob?
jection on this point never stop to
think that while one bicycle rider
goes over the road 100 farmers travel
the same road with teams, and that
about one third of these teams are
pulling heavy loads The time and
effort that is wasted in traveling over
the roads as they are now, if it could
be properly, expended, would more
than keep in first claans condition all
the highwys in the country. Where
the cash system is in use. I find that
the roads are much better. First,
because they are put iu charge of one
man for half or the whole of a town?
ship, who makes a study of the mat?
ter, and soon becomes skilled in the
line, and is able not only see jnst
what needs to be done, but he can do
much more and betiter work than
could possibly be done by any one
unaccustomed to that work Second,
because the road co m misi?n er will
insist upon each and every workman
being at bis post at the proper time
in the morning, and see to it that he
does a full days's work every time,
for unless he can show that the work
is being properly done and the peo?
ple's money is being judiciously ex?
pended, his term cf office soon ex?
pires Third, because the tax payer
himself has a personal interest in
seeing that the commissioner attends
strictly to business, and does thor?
ough and intelligent' work.
Then, again, if the road-tax is paid
in cash, improved road machinery is
used, and it is certain that we can no
more afford to ignore improved meth?
ods and good tools in working
our roads than we can on oar
farms. What would we think of the
farmer who to day would cut bis
grain with a sickle and thresh it with a
flail ? Yet we find more than half
the farmers are bitterly opposed to
any improvement in the system of
roadmaking, preferring to go in the
same old way year after year. Is it
not a fact that oar products come in
competition with the products of /the
whole world, and, if so, must we not
make every effort to get them to
market at the least possible expense ?
; Where the cash system has been in?
troduced better roads are made at
lese than half the cost, and in some
cases only one third as much is now
collected as was formerly paid under
the old system It seems to me that
we could well afford to pay our road
tax in cash, and have the time we
usually spend in woiking it out to at?
tend to our growing crops, even if
we had to pay the full amount we ar?
now paying. Fpr what farmer can
afford to neglect his own home busi?
ness to go on the road at J1 50 a
dav ? If we can get more and bet?
ter work done by paying in . cash
only one half as much as we now pay
in labor (and I believe we can), it
seems to me utter folly to continue in '
the old, unsystematic, expensive
and unsatisfactory way. Let us rath?
er adopt newer and better methods,
and make an intelligent, systematic
effort to improve our highways.
