In a little town about 31 miles
southeast of Laurens seven or eleven
handsome buildings to be used for
stores and offices are under construc
tion. There is a college in the town,
which has several new buildings and
numbers of new residences have been
built lately or are nearly finished.
Some of the residences are among
the handsomest in upper South Caro
lina. Notable among them is that of
Mr. L. W. Floyd, who is well known
in Laurens. Another is that of the
Hon. H. H. Evans, a former mayor of
Laurens as well as of Newberry.
Newberry claims a population of
7,000 but the town appears bigger.
We think we could give a class of a
dozen Newberryians valuable instrue
tion in the art of claiming.
Newberry is one of the most at
tractive and enterprising of Laurens'
outlying cities and of that group of
flourishing cities, Spartanburg, Green
ville, Union and Greenwood which
form the "men"- in the "marble
ring" of which Laurens is the
k 1ig" or "middleman" none is
growing more rapidly than Newberry.
Yes, Newberry has always been
modest in her claims -and conservative
to a fault, but our growth has been
steady and sure. None of your inflated
stuff, and just now there is more sub
stantial growth than we have seen in
Newberry at one time in a long, time.
Some fourteen new stores %are - in
course of construction and just -com
pleted and all of them are being ta
ken as fast,as compl4ted. Numerous
private residences are being built by
those' who want them for their own
The Newberry knitting mill is- just
reorganized and will be put in opera-,
tion in a short time, and the Union'
mill will start a branch factoryr here
in thirty days.

ATTORNEY GENERAL YOUMANS
The day and opportunity of the
candidate are At hand, and we are
reminded that Edgefield is extremely
delighted over the appointment of
that legal giant, Gen. LeRoy F. You
mans-a legal giant, and what is far
more a good, noble, generous, sympa
thetic man. Gen, Youmans will run
-he- must- for attorney general in
the coming campaign. And Edgefield
will link herself to him withhogs of
The Guardian agrees with the
Chronicle that Gen. Youmans will run
for the position that he is now so
ably filling. We don't look for any
opposition to this grand old citizen
and distinguished lawyer who has
done so much for his state. His rec
ord is known and the people will de
light in again casting their billots
for him.-Hampton Guardian.
TheHerald and News would be de
lighted to see Gen. Youmans elected
without opposition. It would be a
fitting tribute to an able, faithful
The abolition of the state dispen
sary will be postponed by just so long
as the fight against it continues to
have the appearance of a bitter per
sonal and spiteful effort to destroy
and discredit Senator Tillman. The
dispensary is weak, but Tillman is
strong. Those who are fighting the
dispensary ought to have sense
enough to direct their attack against
the point of least resistance and steer
clear of the stiff place in the line.
They may wear out their efforts fight
ing Tillman and allow the dispensary
to escape. The real prohibitionists
and anti-dispensary people ought to
pray to be delivered from their fool
There are a great many times when
-it wbuld be well to be delivered from
;tur friends. But we scarcely think
a in this ase there can be much
doubtthat the statedispensary is to go
very soon. The dispensary system
will remain for a long tgne as a
county institutiori but as a state af
~fair the people have decided its fate
and it wil 'have to go and we do not
believe Senator Tillman can save it
or that he will make any great effort
to save it.
The- county -dispensary will suit
most of the ::eounties -as the best
method of 'handling ~the whiskey'
questiefr but if there are others where
a .license system under dispensary
regulations beLst let the county have it
and if there are others where prohi
tion is desired let them have it. Make
the county the unit.

In looking over the files of The
Herald and News, we find that on
April 21st of last year a statement
was published that the railroad com
missioners and the Southern railway
and the C. N. & L. had agreed upon a
plan for the union depot at Newberry,
and it was stated that if the plan was
agreeable to the citizens of Newberry,
work would be commenced at once.
We understood all along that the plan
was acceptable to-the people of New
eerry, yet nearly a year afte this
talement there is st4no unid
The prohibitionists held a confer
ence in Columbia last Thursday
night which was attended by anti

The democratic clubs have been
called by County Chairman Cunning
ham to meet on Saturday, April 28th,
for the purpose of electing delegates
to the county convention, which in
turn will elect delegates to the state
convention. Under the constitution
of the party, clubs may meet at any
other day during the week ending the
28th if that date does not suit. It is
important that these clubs should
meet and organize for the reason that
under our party machinery, clubs are
voting precincts for the primaries.
And besides delegates are to be elec
ted to the State convention.
The Spartanburg-Aiken railroad
project lacks all: of the elements of
a dream. Those who are behind the
scenes feel the utmost confidence.
Newberry should look into this rail
road proposition and see to it that
the road comes this way. Especially
should we have connection from here
towards Augusta and Saluda and then
the section from here towards Whit
mire and Spartanburg would be great
ly benefited by a road to Newberry
and Newberry would also be benefit
ed. It is only sixty miles from here
to Augusta, but by rail you travel
about one hundred and thirty miles.
