UNCLE PETE WRITES OF VISIT.
He Is Pleased with Orangeburg and
His People-How to Build
Editor Herald and News: With
thanks to Uncle Sam for his vacation,
I left Newberry last Monday, accom
panied by Mrs. P. and the little girls
on the down 10.32 Southern. We soon
arrived in Columbia and took in some
of the prominent places in the city.
At 3.50 p. m., we were again at the
depot and were soon on our way to
the city on the Edisto. We were met
at the depot by our son and the little
grandchildren and were soon at his
home on Broughton street. Orange
burg is a nice town and the streets
run North and South and East and
West, and the side walks are laid with
cement from the Southern depot to
the St. Joseph 's and Arlington hotels
and from these hotels to the Ath.ntie
Coast Line depot. The main or btsi
ness street is too narro,w but there are
some splendid blocks. The court house
is built of brick and is a good one.
The post office is on the square and is
a small one, not near large enough. I
met Post Master Webster and his
clerks and they made me welcome.
There are 5 rural routes and carriers
and 4 city carriers. At each street
corner is an iron post with metal
arms on which the names of the
streets are neatly printed, all the
houses are neatly numbered. The
business section of the town does not
come up -to the same in Newberry,
but the residence portion is very nice i
indeed, in fact there are some magni
ficent homes in Oraiggeburg, nearly all
the homes have well kept lawns, and
are a credit to any city. The Catho- I
lies, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, j
Christians, Baptist and Methodist
have nice churches, and perhaps the <
Lutherans, but the Lutherans are
scarce in the city. The city is com
paratively level, has electric lights,
artsian water and they are now put
ting in a complete sewerage system
that runs to the Edisto. There are
two good hotels and they are well'
kept. Four banks and one negro bank.
Three newspapers and one negro pa
per. Two graded school buildings for
the whites and one or two for the
The Orangeburg Collegiate Institu
te is on 'Broughton street and under
the management of Prof. W. S. Pet
-erson is very successful. The enroll
ment last session was 215, and they
are expecting better things this year.
There will be 16 teachers the next
session. Orangeburg is proud of her
school and Prof. Paterson has the
well done of the people on all sides.
The state college for the colored
people and Claflin University are also
here. There is one cotton mill, one
yarn mill, ice plant, oil mill. They al
so ship a lot of brick. The Edisto riv
er is near the city and is well stoeked
with splendid fish.
I met Col. D. 0. Herbert and Mrs.
Herbert. Mr. and Mrs. Glaze and the
children, Mrs. Elizabeth Herbert. 1
These were Newberry people and gave
me a warm grasp of the hand. I also
visited the home of Rev. D. D. Dantz
ler who formerly preached on the
Newberry circuit and married one of
Newberry 's best girls. I also 'met
quite a number of the prominent men
of the city and was given a hearty
welcome every where. I also met Rev.
Huser of St. Matthews, who says:
That the Virginia preachers and Vir
oinia teachers and the Johnson Nut
rass have about over run South Car
I also met Supervisor Dantzler. He
is one of the best supervisors of the
state. He now has 300 miles of splen
did roads in the county and is still
building them as fast as it is possible
to do so. Orangeburg county has 1
mill property tax and one dollar com
mutation tax and this money is spent
entirely on the roads. Mr. Dantzler
says that the commutation tax should
be two dollars and -with that and the
one mill tax he could soon cover 'the
county with good roads. He lets all
his bridges out by contract and (eeps
his chain gang at work all the time
on his roads. He has two road scraps
and they are kept busy every day
in the year of course except Sunday
and very rainy days. He told me
he would not know how to do any
thing without scrapes. He does not
plant any cotton on the county farm
but plants corn, oats, peas, potatoes
and cabbage, &c.
He also uses some King Road
Drags. Mr..Dantzler informed me that
when he first commenced the road im
provement-some of the people kicked,
now every section of the county is
eager for good roads and help him
with their mules, wagons and hire
him their hands. He told me if Sup
ervisor Wicker would get a meeting
of the people on the good road ques
tio. he would gladly come to New
berry and ge temn his experienee.
