AUGUSTA, EDGEFIELD, NEW
We publish in another column aa
interesting interview with General
M. C. Butler on the trolley line ques
tion. The people of Edgefield C. H.
nay not approve, as he states, his
Augusta end of the proposition. There
seems to be much aiid oi polE0 4
tion to a line frtmi here to A ta
but that is a ailer ior 1he 1< ::e
themselves t, settle. Iis prposition
as to an outlet, toward Newberry a,n.d
Greenwood meets their approval. We
need and ml. have a northen out
let, that vill relieve the situation as
nothing else will do. and will secure
for us all possible transportation fa
Gen. Butler is entirely correct that
the road should come to Ne%.erry
and touch the Seaboard at Whitmire
and should go from Edgefield on to
Augusta. The reason you are bot
tled row is you 're the terminus
of a little branch line. Get busy and
touch the Coast Line and Southern
at Newberry and the Seaboard at
Whitmire. Concentrate your energies
on one proposition.
The people who pay out their good
money for road and general taxes are
entitled to better value for it. They
are entitled to have the public high
ways at least given; proper drainage,
so that in good weather they will be
easily passable and without unneces
sary wear ad tear on rolling stock
and animals.-Spartanburg Journal.
This is very true but we will never
have roads in this country under our
present system and methods, and the
practical question which confronts us
is whetre or not we are just yet in pos
ition to undertake the matter on that
scale which will give us good and per,
manent roads. We are satisfied that
we are and that the sooner we begioI
the better and once the woik is be
gun and some roads are properly
made there will be little difficulty in
extending the work. We had under
stood that Spartanburg county pro
posed to re.ise -$200,000 for road
building. If it does and then the mon
ey is properly expended and the roads
.hey should be it will not
be long 'before there will be demand
for more and soon the whole county
will have a net work of good high
ways. The trouble in most places is
we do not go at the buildieng of roads
as we should and they soon wash
away. They should be properly grad
ed and then kept in repair which will
cost but little.
The Newberry Herald and News
very kindly overlooks the supposed
ignorance of The News, on .account of
its yonth, in supposedly not knowing
that a charter for a rail or trolley
line had been granted from Whitmire
to Augsta, via Edgefield. The News
admits its youth, but enters a de
mure as to the specific ignorance
charged. We are not seeking to bor
row charters that might not carry us~
where we desire to go. We might want
to go to Greenwood as it will see by
reading the News this week, but we do
not want the old charter to that point.
The Herald and News is old and we
cannot excuse it on that account: but,
The News is of a very friendly,
neighborly and forgiving nature, and*
forgives it on the ground that it was
not familiar with the facts in the
case. It can learn from this issue of'
The News that years ago, a line was
actually partially graded from Au
gusta via Edgefield to within a short
distance of Newberry. There was an
old charter for that road too. If The
Herald and News will read The News,
we will keep it- posted.-defield
It is very kind of you to forgive
us. Of course there is no compul
sion to use the present charter but we
thought you wanted the road and we
wanted to help you get it the easiest
aind quickest way. If that is what
you want the best plan, if you will
pardon a suggestion, is to centralize
your efforts on one point and build.
Of course if Greenwood is what you
want, why then go to Greenwood. If
Newberry vda $aluda on to Whitmire
and Uihon is what you want why then
get busy on that proposition.
The line was graded right into the
city of Newberry but that road is
nowv in the hands of the Southern
and under an act of the legisla.ture
they have several y-ears yet in which
to b>uild it, and it cannot be had nitil
that time expires. It was rather silly

SOMEONE HAS BLUNDERED. if
We should never think of The Nor- p
folk Larndmark as a nature faker, b
but we are afraid it has been imposed
upon. In its issue of last Saturday,
it published, under glaring headlines,
something concerning the senatorial
hopes and fears of Hemphill, of Char
leston, and attributed this public ex- A
position of his boom to the editor of
The Evening Post. It is true that the
editor of this paper is bearing the
I burden. of his esteemed contempor
ary's candidacy, with such assista.nee
as he can hire by the day-nobody
seems ever willing to engage for a
longer period than twenty-four hours
-but he realizes, as no other can rea
lize, that with such an entry as he
is backing the most careful grooming
is necessary before any public trial
is made of his going ability. The sil
ver-mounted harness is ready, the rub
ber tired buggy with the red wheels is
there-all except the shafts, which
have been sent out for repair-but
the time is not yet for hitching up the
candidate. That was tried before
with disastrous effects, and his man
aer is determined that :no more
chances shall be taken. He is being
trained now in a brake, and the editor
of The Evening Post would never
have trotted him out before the mul-i
titudes assembled in Norfolk for the
celebration of Carolina Day.
The Landmark's reporter must
have been stuffed by one of the comn
missioners to the Jamestown exposi
We understood that this senatorial
boom was launched by the editor of
the Post, the mayor of Charleston
and the speaker of the house of rep
resentatives while they were in Nor- a
folk last week and we are sure we so
read it in several papers. Now here n
comes the editor of the Post talking
about the blundering of some one. n
W are surprised. True we heard at
the press association meeting at the n
Isle of Palms something of this race
and we were gently reminded that no n
newspaper man shou.ld aspire to any
office except it were t-he United States
senatorship. After all this and the '~
bright stories which we received from
Norfolk we are surprised to see the n<
Post say "the time is not yet for
hitching up the candidate.'' You n<
should not be bashful or backward.
You cannot win even the senatorial n
ace in that way. Get busy and let ev
erythig be ready for the running.
BTTER SERVICE WANTED. -
There is sugicient through travel
>ieteen Greenville and Columbia anrd
.harleston over the Atlantic Coast
Line to warrant the handling of a nc
)arlor car on the through trains. The
News fells sure it is voicing the de- ne
sire of the traveling public in asking
for this accommodation. It is a long gi
tiresome trip from Cahrleston to
Greenville. and( vice versa, and we be
ieve that the inauguration of a chair
car over the line would be liberally
supported, particularly in the sum- n
ne months. In addistion to the heat
nbunteredl on the trip going~ in eith- n
er direction, on account of the time
of day the trip between here and Co- nc
umbia is one of the dirtiest in: the
Enited States. By the time the trains n1(
get to their destinations the coaches
are not fit to ride in on account of the 3
dust and cinders. Travelers between
