(THE QUESTION ANSWERED. |
Why the Graded School Bill Was
Killed?Senator Bleasc Covers
| It will be recalled that a bill was
passed though the house at the last!
'' session providing for submitting to
| the people of Newberry the question
of additional bonds for the erection
1 of another school building but failed
in the senate. One of the trustees of
i the graded school some time ago
wrote several inquiries to the papers
of Newberry insisting upon an
answer as to why the bill did not
pass. For some while these communications
have not been continued
though it was stated they would be
continued until an answer was received.
The following correspondence, it
seems, look place in April between another
member of the board and Senator
Bleasc and in it Senator Bleaso
gives his reasons though he did not
( answer the communication of the
i member who asked his questions
through the paper. The correspondence
Newberry, S. (\, April 21, 1008.
i Hon. Cole L. Bleasc,
, Newberry, S. C.
j' My Dear Sir:?
Will you please state your reason
! (if there by any) why you used your
influence against the passage of a
' bill to hold an election on the question
to issue bonds to an. amount not ox~
i cecding twentv-livc thousand dollars
J, at a rate of interest not exceeding
(I five per cent., payable in 20 years,
for the purpose of enlarging tlie
school facilities of tliis district?
I Said bill being authorized by the
tizens of Newberry at a special
eeting held on September .1.0, 1007.
As a member of the board of school
ustees, I am naturally very much
itcrested and know the absolute
ccessitv fur such additional school
Thanking you in advance and asiring
you that an immediate reply
ill be highly appreciated,
Verv respectfullv yours,
April 23 rd, 1008.

I.v Dear O. K.?
Yours of the 21st inst. received
a^ul as always I am delighted at rcc
Aving a communication from you
a\rU from the manner in which it is
adiVessed and the language in which
it i\ couched it gives me pleasure to
repi\ thereto, and as you suggest,
Ass to my influence, my dear fellow,
all that was needed was the motion
made by me which consigned the bill
to the senatorial graveyard.
T made that motion because T was
reliably informed that it had been
already agreed that, the money to be
received from that tax was to be
used in erecting another building on
the same lot that the present school
building on Boundary street is now
upon and to this T along with many
other citizens objected, believing, that
there is no room for such building*
and if there is it should not be put
Why? You may ask. Because the
city of Newberry is rapidly growing
and daily increasing in population
and there are other children in the.
city besides those living in 'Ward
3 and some property that is not
owned by people living in that ward
or on the south side of Pratt street,
and if we are to have another
school building I am in favor of it
being erected at some point on the
north side of Scott creek where it
will be convenient to the children
of that section of our city.
Such a location would remove the
necessity of all the children of that
part of the city crossing Main or
Pratt street in going to and from
school and from passing along the
crowded thoroughfares of the city
I while often alone and unprotected.
T might say more, but not now.
T have the honor of being your
| humble if not always obedient servant.

Atlanta, (!a., June 5.?Conceding (
the election of Joseph M. Brown in ,

night issued the following statement

gave to the principles for which 1

"Wo must remain steadfast in our s

M r. Brown was given an ovation
when he came to Atlanta from his j ]
Marietta home today. Kor two hours '
several hMtidrcd men paraded the I
streets escorting the future governor.
Mr. Brown declined to comment on
Willi the primary over attention is ?
being directed to the State legislature,
but inasmuch as this legislature
will be composed of th" same
members as the last no changes of a
radical nature are expected at the
session beginning the last of the
month. I he newly elected legislature
will not sit until next June.
f"onsiderable interest is also being
taken in the democratic State convention
later in the month, when delegates
to the national convention will
be elected. Sentiment as to a presidential
nominee apparently lias not
taken definite lines as yet.
