E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Entered at the Postoffice at New
VeMy, S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Friday, April 13, 1906.
A special to several papers from
It i n, practically certain that
the efforts that have recently been
made by Senator Tillman and Con
gressman Lever to have the postoffice
department place a mail agent on the
train leaving Columbia for Augusta in
the afternoon will be successful.
"In discussing this matter today
Mr. Lever said:
'' 'I have just seen General Whitem,
superintendent of the railway mail 1
-division of the postoffice department
about putting an agent .on the late
train between Columbia and Augusta,
and I believe that we will be success- 3
ful. The mail train from. the north
is often so ,ate in arriving at Colum
bia, getting there after the Augusta
train has gone, which always delays t
the mail for the line of way until e
early next morning, a delay of about 3
seventeen hours. The placing of an r
agent on the late train will be of in- b
calculable benefit to the people along e
the route. We hope to have it insti- s:
tuted at an early date.' '
What is the cause 6f the delay in
securing an agent and mail service ti
on the C. N. & L. Sometime ago
President Childs had made the neces- o:
sary changes in his coach to handle h
the mail and postal clerk. . When g
'last heard of it was that the ' gov- o:
ernment was not .''willing .to pay a N
sufficient sum. to have the mail hauled .aA
to and from the postoffiee in - Colum- h
bia. Will Mr. Aiken, and Mr. Lever a]
and Mr. Johnson look into .this mat- it
ter and tell us what'is the cause of ,
the delay. A mail service on this ai
train even as itis run as now-would be tI
great convenienep to a very:large con- p
stituency aid if it could be made into w
a regular passenger train on through p:
to Greenville it would serve a still bet- s<
ter purpose. -Genztlemen, please give ti
this matter your attention. Just as o
important as the service on the Au
gusta ti-ain and if one can be put 'on' ai
why 'not the other 7 Let them' both B
be put in operation. mn
It seems to 'us that more .noise is n
being made about the use of request I
books than, is necessary. If that is 'el
all. that is. wrong with the dispensary st
it is in good shape.-Newberry Her- C
ald and News.
Does The Herald and News mean1
to condone the open violation of the
law which requires the use of, re
quest books 7-Pee Dee Advocate. he
Not at all. We do 'not condone the
violation of law in any respect. But he
this failure- to 'use request books has
been the practice from the beginning s
of the system in this state, and where
they were used was the exception, is
and we can see no good in making v
a ''hurrah play"~ . about the failure
to use request. books at this late day. s
If that is all that the investigation a
ean accomplish there was little use fort
its existence. There is n'io good in the t
use of request blanks anyway, andte
*never was. But- it is the law, you a
-say, and should be enforced. Well, th
yes, that is true and it is also the law
that if you have a horse worth $200a
you must assess him for taxation at cal
$200 and yet the whole- tax depart- fui
ment says that it shall be at 60 per
cent of the value, and much of thepi
propprty is at a less rate than 60 per
cent of the value.
If the council would get. options
from the property owners on the wi
burnt district for widening the street
from Kibler, Dennis and company's '
*furniture store to Ah&d'p a nd, then
purchase about teE' or 'tfeehfre:it ter
would add greatly to the appearance gre
of the city. It mght be that those bel
who own thiis- property would give the ler
land. It would benefit them as much ne~
if not more than any one ,else arnd to
would pay them to give it to the city ter
on condition that the sidewalks be pec
fixed up in keeping with those on the que
other side of the street. And possi
bly those who own property across the in
street would co-operate in having the car
street widened. The matter is..worth for
coensidering 'before any buiidinigs are hee
.erected. There is only one building les,
on the street now that is worth much ton
and no doubt Mr. Mower, who owns
this, would give the council a liberal ati
proposition because it would greatly
improve his, property while being of
great advantage to the city.3

premium to that citizen who will in

We want to get to that point where
we can see beyond our own immediate
personal gain in any enterprise that
is started for the general weal.
How about that makeshift for a
union station we were promised some
months ago. The weather has been

BUILDING A GREAT RAILEROA]
Three Thousand Laborers Now
Work on Road Between Marion,
N. C., and Spartanburg.
Charlotte, N. C., April 11.-ThrE
thousand laborers, many of them fo
eigners, representing the first of th
I immigrants to ome to this state i
numbers, are now engaged in coi
structing the South and Western Rai:
road from Marion, N. C., to Spartar
burg, S. C., and possibly to Clintor
The building of this road is one o
the greatest things that has happene,
in many years for the industrial de
velopment of the western part of th
state. On account of the mountain
ous nature of the country, where th,
road begins, it promises to be one o
the most expensive in the country
mile for mile. There are to be no
less than seventeen tunnels throug]
the mountains in an eighteen-mil
stretch of the road, which will maki
the cost per mile go far beyond $10,
000. A dozen huge boilers and ma
chinery for boring are kept running

mountains, the tunnel work is being

fully is thes, urveying plan mapped
out. There are no bonds asked for by
the promoters of the gigantic -enter
prise and ample capital is behind it.
It is said that the South and West
arn will have trains running into
Spartanburg by May, 1908.
Speculation now is directed towards
the question, "Will the road build to
he coal fields of West Virginia, and
hence to the sea by means of connec
tions with roads already built?" This
is causing more guessing than any
>ther feature of the enterprise, but

ng their movements and plans quiet,

work in the mountains, and shovels

-ectly under their observation.
