The civic association should get up
some plan to raise some money. It
will need some money at its disposal
in order to start some of the reforms
needed in this town. The association
ought to a certain extent be finan
cially independent and then its re
quests and suggestions would carry
more weight. But the officers and
workers must not be discouraged.
That wagon yard must be secured

To the Honorable. the Senate and
House of Representatives.-Gentie
men: I have the honor to inform
your honorable bodies that Mr. B. F.
Thomas has resigned the office of di
rector of the State penitentiary, and
the same has been accepted by me as
of this date. His term will expire ix
January, 1910, and his successor will
have to be elected by you.

The Farmers' union in session in
Columbia last week made some good
resolutions. The thing now, of im
portance is for the members to live
up to the resolutions. One is to

-on the- Newberry and Lexington side
of Broad river.
*It would open up a very rich see

counties if the road were built on

to us if the line is located some dis

We do not know what the commit

doing or has done towards having
the road e6me via Newberry. -We
hope that the committee from the
chamber of commerce is awake to the
importance of doing everything that
is possible to secure this road for
Newberry, because it is probably the
last opportunity Newberry will have
to secure a through line.
The bill introduced in the legrisIa
ture to provide for a county attorney
has been killed by the senate.
If it had contained a. provision to
let the county attorney take the plae

very wise measure, but if tile bill had
passed as introduced and the county
attorney had performed the duties re
quired by the bill there would have
been very little left for the solicitor
