HAS NEVER BEEN TO NEWBER- to
A few days ago a communication jc
appeared in the State from Sumter, N
making complaint that the post office d
at that place closed its outer door at
9 o'clock, so that even those persons, to
who owned lock boxes, could not get
their mail after that hour. and stat
ed that it was the only post office of ti
the s,cond class in the United States M
wh6re mail -could not be received
through lock boxes after 9 o'clock at
night. The party, who wrote the let
ter. has probably never been to New
berry. Our office is closed promptly i
at 9 o'clock and the mail that comes to
in at 9:50 is not distributed until af- B
ter S o'clock the next day.
We notice from the Sumter Item
that this complaint has been reme
died and that the postmaster states
that no complaint had ever been made F
to him, but that he had been work- d
ing on the matter for nearly a year
and that in a few days he would be S
able to give the people access to the ra
office at fight. In fact, he proposes h
after the 15th of this month to put on
a night clerk, who will have charge of
the office and make up the mail that
is deposited during the night. Of p,
course the general delivery will not ac
be open at night, but persons who ei
have locked bores, will be able to go
into the lobby and secure their mail
and dposit outgoing mail. st
In our post office if it should hap- it
pen that trains Nos. 18 and 19 are ii
made mail trains, it will scarcely be si
possible to buy stamps or secure sl
money orders except at very brief t(
intervals, because while mails are be- h,
ing put up, the money order, stamp w
and registered letter windoVs are it
either closed or there is no one at any h;
of them to wait -upon those who de- o1
sire. Ao buy stamps or money orders. si
This. smetimes works a great ineon- ii
venience, and persons have to wait ra
until the mail is distributed or go V
away~ and come again.' We thought ti
that'when the office was made a see- el
ond elass office and separate windows a
were 1abeled for stamps and register
ed letters an i money orders that at
least during the office hours there ii
would be someone constantly at these il
windows to wait upon The public. If eC
the force at present is not sufficient .ti
for this work, the government cer- h
tainly ought to furnish .additional h
In' a town of this size and at an E
office that does the business that is a
done at Newberry, it should not be
necessary to close down these win- '
dows while mail is being put up.
WHY THE DIFFERENCE?
The people of this community would
be glad to know why the Standard
Warehouse Company can afford to
store cotton at Greenwood at 10 cents
per: bale while it charges 20 cents
for the same service at Newberry. The
following is a copy of a circular,
which has been distributed through-e
out this county,. and though it gives
a free advertisement to the Ware
house business, we give it this pro
mninence in order to inquire from the
management at the warehouse at
Newberry why this discrimination
should be inade' aaginst this city. If
the Standard Warehouse . .Cbmpany
can afford to cut the price at Green
wod it certainly ought to do even
better for the town of Newberry,
where it has a monopoly of the busi
ness. The farmers, instead of building
a warehouse of their own here, have
been patronizing the Standard Ware
house Company, and this concern has
gotten all of the business. If the
Standard Warehouse can afford to
store cotton at 10 cents the bale where
it has competition it ought to be able
to do s where it has a mnopoly.
The following is the circular:
"To meet the cut made by the
Standard Warehouse company at this
-point only, we will store and insure
and grade your cotton for 10e per
bale per month, the fractional part of
a month to count as a month. Our
Warehouse, located in the center of
the city on the S. A. L. Railroad, is
up-to-date in all respects. We have a
*large platform and.a fine sample room
for the display of your cotton. We so
licit the patronage of all who have
cottn to st9re.'
