E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Entered at the Postoffice at New
Serry, S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday. June 29, 1909.
The editor of The Herald and
News has received a piece of the New
York Herald of June 22. in which is
printed a cut from a photograph tak
en by Mr. Lazarnick, the New York
Herald's photographer, with the scout
cars which passed through Newberry
On -the margin of this sheet is writ
ten: "To Editor Aull with compli
ments of E. Auto Jenkins. Told-you
On another portion of the margin
of this sheet is written: "The Capital
city route. gets credit for this." Be
neath the cut, which shows a New
York White steamer stuck in the
mu,d in a most horrible stretch of road
the following: "Almost impassable
roads near Newberry, S. C. A photo
We desire to thank Mr. Auto Jen
kins for sending this cut and to as
sure him that he has sent his compli
ments in the wrong direction. Mr.
Lazarnick took only one photograph
of the cars in Newberry county and
that was a photograph of the new ex
perimental road which is being built
under direction of the government ex
pert one mile east of Newberry.
The editor of The Herald and News
rode with the scout cars from Green
wood to Columbia and at no place be
tween these points were the cars stuck
in the mud and only two or three
times was there any interruption or
delay. Just before reaching Newber
ry we found a threshing machine
broke down on a bridge and a detour
of four miles out of the way had to
be taken but the cars eame in without
any truoble. From Newberry to Co
lumbia the only interruption we had
-was wihen 2Mr. Auto Jenkins' car
broke down and we lost about forty
minutes getting him in shape for
traveling. A few miles further Mr.
Auto Jenkins had another accident
and we finally passed 'him and went
into Columbia without him.
We understand that somewhere be
yond Columbia, possibly in Riehland
county, that these scout cars did get
stuck in the mud, and it is a photo
graph of this sketch of road which
appears in the New York Herald
with the wrong label under it It
might have been in Kershaw county.
At any rate we remember having read
in the paper of this accident to the
scout cars,-but we are satisfied that it
was not in Newberry county and no
one knows this better than Mr. Auto
If Mr. Auto Jenkins woIIld devote
his energy towards putting the capital
route as the desires it in good condi
tion and proelaiming its advantages
instead of taking so much pleasure in
knocking Newberry and the Newberry
roads he might accomplish sonie re
1sults, and we feel sure he would feel
better himself. We have said nothing
against the route via Augusta. We
started out to bring the scout
ecars of .the Journal and Herald
by Newberry. They came 'this
way and reaced Columbia with
out accident or delay except such
as ea6sed by Mr. Auto Jenkins,
who came to Newberry as a pilot.
This was done in the face of the ac
tive opposition of Mr. Auto Jenkins.
We hope it will result in stimulating
an active interest in good roads. If
this route should be adopted we guar
antee good roads through Newberry
Mr. John C. Neel, who lives on the
stretch of one mile of good roads be
ing built by the government expert,
says that it damaged his cotton crop
possibly twenty-five dollars, but tha.t
even this one mile of road has bene
fitted him directly not less than five
hundred dollars, and, therefore, he
feels that he is the gainer by just
four hundred and seventy-five dol
Jars. It will not only benefit Mr. Neel
but every other citizen of that sec
tion of the county. They will be di
reetly beilefititej and every citizen of
every .other section will be indirectly
benefitted. You can't make a mile of
good road anywhere in the county
without helping every citizen of the
county. That road ought to be ex
tended to Prosperity right now while
the chain gang is at work and those
in charge know how to do the work.
Without this the lesson taught by the
government expert will be lost.
The good roads league has been
given a column in The Herald and
News to preesnt the argument in fa
vor of the bond issue. We hope they
will be able to let the people under
stand the provisions of this act
thoroughly, and we believe if they do
understand it they will vote the bonds.
We know if they could understand
that the money will not be used, and
cannot be, to the benefit of any par
ticular section, but must be used in
every township, and that only $50,
'000 ean be issued at one time, and if
it is not properly spent the rest can
be held up, that they would vote the
bonds. It is the proper way to build
roads and we believe with this amount
spent we can get at least 200 miles
of permanent roads in this county,
and it would be the best investment
the people of the county could make.
It would pay greater dividends than
any other investment, and besides the
incorporated towns, the railroads and
corporations would pay the greater
part of the tax and they favor it.
We cannot understand why a man
who lives in the country and owns a
farm would object to the county issu
ing bonds for the permanent road
work which is proposed to be done.
The man who pays on an assessed
value of $1,000 would have to pay
only $2 a year and even if the perma
nent road did not come within five
miles of lhis house it would be a good
investment for him.
They say we may get the bonds and
have the interest to pay and get no
roads. The commission, who are to
have charge of this fund, are pretty
good sized taxpayers themselves and
they are not likely to waste any mon
ey. Besides thatt hey are good bus
iness men and are our own people.
Different when we voted bonds for
railroads. We turned the bonds ov
er to people who thad no interest in
us except to get our money. If the
commissioners waste the money they
will be wasting their own money as
well as yours. But they will not

great damage to the cotton crop. Cot

then you can do cotton almost any
way and it will make a good yield.

The scout cars have arrived in New
York. They will rest up and then re
turn on t:he Bristol route. We must I

MAYOR MAHON ROBBBD.
Thief Enters Home of Greenville's
Chief Executive and Secures $60.
No Clue to Miscreant.
Greenville, June 23.-The home of

was sleeping, and took from his

tained a diamond worth over $100
and his jeweled watch was in -his
vest. None were touched.
