FREE DELIVERY DELAYED.
Inspector Here to Establish it But
City Council Not Ready After
The post offlee inspector has been
in Newberry for several days hav
ing come here for the purpose of
completing the arrangements for the
institution of free delivery to which
the city is entitled. Owing to the fact,
however, that city couneil has not fin
ished posting the names of the streets
at the various street corners, the in
spector declined to do anything. This
will probably delay the institution of
free delivery for several months. The
inspector has a great many other ap
pointments and may not be able to
get here before the first of next year.
If city council had fiiiished the
work, which was known to be neces
sary in order to have free delivery
established, it is very probable that.
it would have been put into operation
here within the next few weeks. The
ifnspector will not take up the matter
until those things required by the
movernment are complied with. City
council had notice of these require-!
ments at least nine months ago and
knew that the city would be entitled
to free delivery, and it does seem that
ouncil should have been a little more
active in meeting the requirements
of the government. The inspector
said that the numbering of the hous
es was all right and met his appro
val. but that before he eould recom
mend the establishment of free de
livery the street smust all have the
names posted at the corners. Only a
portion of, the streets have been so
labeled, and the posts -and the names
that have been-put up have a very
antiquated appearance, and one might
judge from looking at them that they
were in a town that was just receiv
ing free delivery some one hundred
It is a great pity that the city
while it was going to the expense to
do this work, did not provide steel
or iron posts with at least respectable
looking labels containing the name
of the street. The boards that are
nailed on the posts that have been
put .ip are just high enough to strike
the pedestrain in the eye if he should
get a little too close towards -the post,
but we suppose they are better than
nothing, -and that councit will con
tinue to erect such cheap looking de
vices tor the labeling of the streets.
Until this is completed, however, the
citizens need not expect -any steps
further to be taken for the establish
mnt anid inauguration of free ldeliv
cry of mail.

It- was mentioned in The Her

this place with a view to build
a cotton mill. They decline to talk

other -arrangements made and

The place contains about two hi
ded and fifty acres of land, a p
tion of it in the incorporate limits
