How do I get the system to reread /etc/newsyslog.conf file with out
rebooting the system?

This is usually done by sending a HUP signal with 'kill' to the newsyslog daemon. If this doesn't do it then you can kill the daemon and load it again with the script in /etc/rc.d/

You might want to take a look at /etc/crontab - in particular the entry
for newsyslog:

# Rotate log files every hour, if necessary.
0       *       *       *       *       root    newsyslog

Its not a daemon.  It runs and exits.  It reads the newsyslog.conf file
each time it runs.

I overlooked this fact.
