E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Entered at the Postoffice at New
terry. S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday, Auust 27, 1907.
AS NBAR AS WE CAN.
We very much admire the persis
tency and the energy which is dis
played by the editor of the Charles
ton Post in his efforts to bring to the
front his candidate for the United
States Senate. We sympathize with
him in his efforts to arouse the state
press to the importance and advisa
bility and the necessity to stand up
to one of their own members. We
should all assist the editor of the Post
in his efforts to gratify the ambition
of a brother editor. But the Post
seems to have been more successful in
securing foreign endorsement, as
note the following from the New
York Herald: "South Carolina De
moeracy would strengthen their or
ganization and gratify the rank and
file of the party throughout the coun
try by sending a man of Major
Hemphill's high earacter and ability
to the senate as a counterpoise to
the impetuous and fiery senior sena
tor." And this appeared in the Sun
day Herald at that.
We believe that the Bamberg Her
ald has burned all bridges behind it
and pledged undying support to the
Post's candidate. The Herald and
News would have been in line long
ago, but for the fact that we have
made it a rule of our existence to
stand by Newberry men, who always
have political ambitions, and as we
never fail to furnish our full quota
of candidates for all of the positions
in the gift of th-e people of. South
Carolina, we have been waiting to
see if we could not hear a noise
around Newberry, which sounded like
the fluttering of a senatorial candi
date or two, but not having heardany
such noise and the time being so near
for the alignment to be made, we
have about decided to drop in line
and put our shoulders to the wheel,
which is being turned by the Charles
ton Post in the interest of Major
Hemphill 's candidacy for the United
States senate. That is about as neat
as we can, just at this time, come to
We observe that the people of
Summerville, away down near Char
leston , are making complaint because
* "of the screaming of whistles and
other disturbing noises of the pass
ing trains at all hours of thie night.''
We suppose if the ma3 or of the city
resides anyiwhere near these scream
ing noises he. '"ill soon have nm ordi
nance passd. --equirinu; these trains
to pass through the ci+; without mak
ing such u:carthly noises so as not
disturb the peaceful slumber of the
quiet inhabitants. We recall that

A LITTLE PREVIOUS.
We observe the following para
graph from the Greenwood Index:
Spartanburg county has voted to
issue $200,000 in bonds for the pur
pose of improving the roads of the
* county. Spartanburg evidently does
not believe in waiting on Senator
Latimer's Federal aid scheme. Spar
tanburg county is as progressive as
Spartanburg city. This latest mark
of progress puts that county right
at the top. It has been there for
sometime so far as this state is con
cerned. The reason? Spartanburg
people do not mind spending money
to get money.
The Index, like The Herald and
News, was a little previous in its
commendation of the people of Spar
tanlurg. It seems that later infor
miation shows that the proposition to
issue bonds for the building of roads
was voted down. We regret that the
Spartanburg people by their votes
did not make it possible for the
words of commendation, spoken by
the Index and The Herald and News,
to remain and to be true.
As a matter ot fact the vote indi
eates that the city of Spartanburg
really (leteated the bond issue, though
a very li,_ht vote wa. polled through
out the county.
We suppose it is just as we stated
sometime ago in regard to Anderson
-that everybody is suspicious of ev.
erybody else and is afraid that his
neighbor will get the advantage of
the good roads before he does, and
therefore, nobody will get it. We can
not make any substantial progress
until we get out of such narrow
grooves and become broad enough not
to be envious even if the good work of
improvAmfnt shoiAld stirike
our neighbor before it hits us. Good
roads in any county and in any por
tion of any county will benefit all of
the people of that county, just like
good streets or some good streets in
any city will help all the people in
that city, and yet, we find in some
cities that people are opposed to
street improvement, because theyl
fear that the -street in front of some
body else's door will be improved be
fore the one in front of their own
We cannot understand the narrow
ness of such a position, yet we can
not close our eyes to the facts. We
only .hope that these conditions will
soon pass #way.
Mr. Wallace C. Tompkins is a pat
riotic citizen who has the welfare of
Edgefield at heart. He will donate
one hundred acres of land for a trol
ley lino 'from Augusta, Edgefield, Sa
luda to Newbe-ry. We hear of others
who are ready to aid in a like manner
and others with cash. Edgefield is
surely awakeningi-Edgefield News.
There will be no difficulty in secur
ing a right of way to any company
that will build the road. We megn
from Edgefield to Whitmire. The
people in the country are very anx
ious to have this road built and will
give all the aid and cooperation in
their power. A gentleman from No. 8
remarked the other day that the peo
ple out his way would be willing to b
taxed if necessary, if they could be
assured of the road.
We should have the road bed which
has already been graded from here to
Augusta. It would help a great deal.
There might be necessity for a few
changes but the work that has been
done would be of great help.
We hope Gov.. Sheppard and his
committee will get the information
they are to 'seek and that ,another
meeting will be held and some prac
tical plan such as suggested by Gen.
Butler be adopted so that we may get
A construction company with the
right of way secured and the line sur
veyed would have something tangi
able with which to go to these other
We notice that the Cotton Growers
Association of Spartanburg county
have fixed 13' cents as the minimum
price for this season. We unider
stand -that President Jordan advocat
es 15 cents as the minimum. We should
think that the action of the Spartan
burg Association is the ivise course
to pursue. If the farmers can re
eive a minimum of 13 cents for their
rop we think they will be in a bet
ter position to control the situation
in the future. We do not believe it
would be wise to fix so high a figure
as 15 cents as the minimum.
MR JOHNSTONE HONORED.
We congratulate Mr. Alan John
stone and the people of Newbe.rry
that one of its citizens has been hon
ored by promotion to the head of one
of the most important institutions in
the state. Mr. Johnstone was one of
the firt elective members . of theI
board of trustees for Clemson college
and rendered valuable service in the
building of the college. For some
reason the legislature failed to re
elect him and for a few years the
state was denied his valuable counsel
and work on this board. Sometime
ago,- however, he was elected to the
position of life member on the death
of Mr. D. K. Norris and ha's gone
into the work with enthusiasm.I
Now upon the resignation of Mr.
R. W. Simpson as chairman of the
board his services have been recog
nized and he has been ctosen by the
entire board as president of the
board of trustees, a position which
earries with it great honor, much la
hor and time as well as added respon
sibility. In thk new position we
have no doubt Mr. Johnstone will
measure up to the requirements plac
ed upon him.
We regret. however, that this posi
tion which has been voluntarily giv
en to Mr. Johnstone shall deprive the
people of Newberry county of his
valuable services as a member of the
..1-ilii )f .IN95 no mal v'all serve

Artiele :. Sectiin 24 says:
"Seetion 24. No person shall be
eligible to a seat in the general as- A
sembly while he holds any office or
position of profit or trust under this
-state, the United States or any of
them, or under any other power, ex- T(
cept offices in the military and no
taries pubiie; and if any member
shall accept or exercise any of the
said disqualifying offices or positions Si
he shall vacate his seat."
President Z. F. Wright continues
the special committee with the trans
por.tation committee of the chamber
of commerce to confer with the
Edgefield committees in regard to the
proposed trolley from Augusta via
Edgefield to Newberry. It is expect
ed that another meeting of the sever
al committees will be called very soon A
by the president of the Edgefield
meeting, Hon. B. E. Nicholson.
Gen. Butler in his interview with
the News and Courier on labor condi
tions spoke a very strong truth when L
he said: "If we could get rid of the
demagogue this country would be all fo
right. Why a fellow will get up and a
make a speech in which he portrays ".)
the marvellous prosperity and pro- m
gress of the country, and then in a
little while he will denounce the cor- an
porations for their terrible oppres
sion of the people. I can't figure out sn
how he stands for both propositions.'' po
It is a little remarkable that the de- sn
magogue should be able to remain in
the saddle in this country so long. br
We are strongly convinced that e
Gen. Butler is right when he says
that a lot of these fellows who are w,
constantly denouncing the negro ai
would be almost ready to start. a civ
il war if there should be any organiz
ed effort for the exodus of the negro- B,
In fact, we believe that the legislature
has already passed an act requiring ed
the license for emigration agents to -s
be so high as to be prohibitive. We in
believe that the negro is the best farm hj
labor that we can secure in this coun- tv
try and we also believe that the white ta
people and the farm'ers of this coun- ge
ry can control the labor without any g
great amount of legislation if they T
will determine to do so and if each. at
man will do by his neighbor as he
would like for his neighbori to db by
him. Of course the first step in .this p]
direction will be the repealing of,the th~
lien law and we are satisfied that this th~
will be done at the next session of the

varied experiences and we hope he m
may live to give us many.more years
of valuable service. nE
It was not the intention of Editor
Aull to have his knowledge of p.oker
advertised, nor did he expect the edi
tor of the Observer would exploit it ER
when he remarked that the number
of the Observer offiee represented a
fairly good poker hand. We do not
laim any great knowledge of this ax
game but we have always understood be
that four one spots was a fairly good an
hand. We know we are not as guile
less in a great many ways as our co- t

great game. And yet probably, well- p
