MITS B. M'SWBBNEY.
The editor of The Herald and
News received telegrams on Wednes
day morning, conveying the sad in
telligence of the .death of his life
Jomg friend, Ex-Governor M. B. Me
Gov. MeSweeney had been in bad
health for several months, and for
two months was in a !hospital in Bal
timore, where he died.
We are writing this simple an
.nouncement just before leaving to at
ead his funeral at his home in Hamp
-ion, S. C.
I Gov. MeSweeney was big hearted
and generous, a friend to every
body, and everybody's friend.
He was a typical American, a self
ma,3, man in every sense of the word.
We knew him possibly better than
any other outside his own family. We
have seen him in all the relations of
life and he was the same kind heart
ed gentleman at all times. True to
his friends, kind and indulgent to
He was a self-made man, and a true
and tried friend. In a subsequent is
sue we hope to say something more of
his life and service, and to pay our
feeble tribute to his memory.
He was our friend for many years,
and for four years we lived with his
family as a member of it, and for all
of them we feel the same as if they
were our own blood, and our :deepest
iympat'hy goes out to them in this
hour of their sad bereavement.
The Automobile Club of Greenville,
is going to have a good roads rally at
*Greenville on October 15, and expects
to extend invitations to automobile
soxwners of the automobile highway
between Greenville and Columbia.
The purpose, as we understand, is to
get the owners along this line inter
ested in the building of the road be
* tween Columbia and Greenville.
Every automobile owner ought to
take an active interest in this work,
and we should think every citizen
who lives aldng the road especially
should ~be interested, because if a
good road is built which is good for
automobiles, it will also be good for
rwagons and buggies.
We hope that a full delegation
from Newberry vill attend the meet
'We would like to ask Mr. J. A.
Brock, of Anderson, if he has ever
appointed the committee, which he
was authorized to appoint, by -the
meeting at Greenville, in the inter
est of better schedule on the Colum
bia and Greenville division of the
Sout.hern Railway. As we understand
the action of this meeting in Green
ville, this committee was to be ap
pointed by the chairman and they
were to confer with the officials and
agree upon something that would be
eatisfactory to the patrons and that
e ould be agreed upon by the -officials.
