TUESDAY, JULY 19, 1904.
The press association spent a cou
ple hours in the thriving and progres
sive city of Union on last Thursday
afternoon. The Chamber of Com
merce and the mayor and other citi
zens united to extend the invitation
and provided a special train to bring
the association from White Stone to
Union and return. We were driveii
over the city and given every atten
tion. This is mentioned to c,ommend
the spirit of progressiveness which
actuates the young business men of
this city. Anything that will promote
the general welfare of the city ha
their united support.
As a result of this spirit of united
effort Union has grown from a small
village of ten years ago. as some one
remarked that seem-d completed, to
a thriving and prosperous city of
some 8.ooo or io.ooo souls. with large
and prosperous mills on every side.

to be submitted to the people because
we believed .the people of Newberry
county wanted to vote on the ques

Second Week Began With No Pros

This is the prediction of the pack
ers' as to the effect of the strike of
the butchers on the retail markets.
At the same time the men controlling
the ,neat industry declare that there
will be no real meaf famine or any
thing approaching it..
The retail dealers are expected to
advance the rate of straight beef
half a cent a pound. making a tot-l
of four and one-half cents since the
butchers walked out.
The stock handlers at the yards
were to have refused to handle any
cattle for the packers after six o'clock
this morning. The order. howvever,
has been countermanded. pending the
result of a meeting of all the unions
at the yards not now connected with
the strike. This meeting will be held
Chicago. July 18.--The second
week of the great packing hotuse

conditions unfavorable to a peaceful
settlement of the differences between
the employers and the employees, with
added grievancs and with determi

Failing in the conference betwveen
