Congressman Aiken Introduces Bill in 1
Congress for $100,000 Building at
The following is the text of a bill,
which has been introduced in this con- a
gress by Congressman Aiken. He has e
also introduced a similar bill for Ab- e
beville. It is not probable that any 8
legislation will be had at this session b
looking to the rection of a government e
building in Newberry. but Mr. Aiken c
is to be commended for getting the
matter agitated and started. If i:
Greenwood and Chester and other 0
towns in the same class with New- a
berry are to have government build- e
ings, there is no reason why there s
should not be one at Newberry. t
By the close of the present fiscal s
year it is probable that Newberry s
will have free delivery of mail and b
while our new post office is fitted up (
with this in view and is a very neat i
office in every respect, it would be e
much better if there was a handsome t
goverinent building in this city.
In regard to the free delivery of t
ail, we understand that it is govern
c by the stamp sale. Newberry

Burton has made so many conflict

arties with it, that it is.difficult to
scertain just what the facts in the

liould be made to understand that
Lich outrageous acts as the willful
