Resolutions Adopted by Citi
zens of Parksville, S. C.
Whereas a very unfortunate and
very uncalled for occurrence happen
ed some twelve miles out from our
town and community several days
ago; viz., the killing of one negro and
wounding several others, as a result
of some little trouble between some
white men and negroes and whereas,
the impression has gone out that this
thing happened at Parksville (which
is a mistake), and whereas, we,, the
undersigned citizens of Parksville
and community do not approve of
such proceedings as took place in the
above referred to occurrence, and
whereas we believe - from what we
have been able to find out, that the
whole thing came about as the result
of MOONSHINE STILLS being run
and the liquor sold in our midst,
therefore, be it resolved by the un
dersigned citizens of Parksville and
community, in mass meeting assem
1st. That we do hereby condemn
lawlessness in any and every form,
and declare ourselves boldly for law,
order and decency and absolutely a
gainst the MOONSHINE DISTILLER
and all who are anywise connected
with his damnable business; and we
do hereby bind ourselves as law abid
ing citizens of this community to put
forth every possible effort to unearth <
every individual who is in any way
connected with this mid-night-char
acter-damning, soul-destroying, hell
filling liquor business, and to spend
our time and money to convict and
bring to justice, every man who is (
low enough, and mean enough to be
engaged in it in any manner whatso
ever, or else we will drive him from
our borders and we will make our
community, by the help of God, a fit
community in which to rear our boys
and girls, and attractive to others ?
who may desire to come in and live ,
with us, we adopt this method of let- }
ting the world know where we stand ,
on such matters as this: we are abso- j
lutely agains-; lawlessness and MOON j
SHINE LIQUOR, and all those whe .
will persist in being connected there- ]
wth in any manner whatsoever. i

Strong Endorsement of Rapid
Rapid Sealer is steadily growing in
favor with automobile owners. The
following is a copy of a letter Mr.
J. G. Alford wrote to a Wilmington,
Del. man about Repid Sealer and his
reply follows which speaks for itself.
Mr. Harry R. Loose,
I am advised that you are selling a
goods for sealing puncture in auto
tubes known as Rapid Sealer, if this
is correct will you kindly advise what
your experience has been with the
goods and has it been satisfactory to
the ones who are using it.
Please state if you know of any
case where it has rotted the tubes, I
am interested in this because I have
taken the agency here and would like
to know the merits of the goods be
fore I recommend the use of it to my
I will appreciate your kindness in
this matter very much, and trust you
have found the goods to be good.
Very truly yours,
J. G. ALFORD.
Boulevard and Van Buren Sts.
Mr. J. G. Alford,
j Edgefield, S. C.
My Dear Sir:
! Your letter inquiring about Rappid
Sealer, duly at hand, and in reply
will say, I have been using this mate
rial for the past 6 or 7 years, and can
truthfully say that it will not injure
rubber in any way, and I regard it
'as the greatest preserver of rubber
that I ever saw.
j After you wrote me asking if Rap
pid Sealer would injure rubber I hap
pened to think of an old demonstrat
ing tire 1 had up stairs in my shop
that I had filled about 6 years ago
and had used for a time as a demon
strating wheel in my show room after'
it had run a season on a Ford car.
This was an old tube when I had fill
ed it and when I had it removed the
other day I found it to be in better
condition than when the material was
put in it.
Only this week a man drove in to
I my place from another town and
j showed me a set of four tires he
?bought from me over two years ago
and had filled with Rappid Sealer at
the time. He said he had never had
thre^of them off the wheels, nor had
they ever been flat, and he is a hard
driver. I could relate to you many
like experiences but have not the
time to do so at this writing. I think
I have told you enough to let you
know how I feel about Rappid Sealer.

NEW EXCHANGE TELEPHONE BATES
EFFECTIVE MAY 1, 1919
A new schedule of telephone exchange rates be
came effective in Edgefield May 1 by direction of
the Operating Board of the United States Telegraph
and Telephone Administration, acting under the or
der of the Postmaster General of the United States.
As you know, all of the lines and property of this
company are in the possession, control and are being
operated by the United States Government under
the direction of the Postmaster General of the Uni
The new rates are necessary in order that addi
tional revenue may be secured by the government to
meet the increased operating expenses. The causes
which make greater telephone revenue necessary are
due to the new conditions and the new price levels
introduced by the war and are entirely beyond thc
control of the United States Telegraph and Tele
phone Administration or of the Telephone Company.
More than two years ago the company foresaw
that the telephone system would be operated at a
loss unless the rates could be adjusted to meet the
increasing costs ot all elements entering into the pro
duction of service. A similar rate adjustment would
have been unavoidable under private control and the
new rate schedule is practically the same wc would
have sought in 1918 if the government had not taken
possession of our property.
As stated by the Postmaster General, the owners
of the telephone system do not benefit in any way
from rate changes. Practically all of the increased
operating expenses which require this additional rev
enue are due to increased wages paid to employes to
enable them to meet the new conditions of life in the
lt is neither practicable nor desirable to reduce
wages, and so far as wages are concerned we believe
that portion of the increased operating expenses to
The new rate schedule is fair and reasonable and
the percentage of incre?ised revenue which it will
produce is much lower than the increased cost of
other services and commodities of a similar character.
Complete detailed information about the new rates
may be obtained at the manager's office. We are
making every effort to change our records promptly
and your courteous consideration will be appreciated.
The. new rate for your service is shown on your state
ment for May 1.
