IMPORTANCE OF ORGANI7A
There has not been that interest in
oar Chamber of Commerce on the
part of the business men of this
community, which sueh an organi
zation deserves. In this particular,
however, Newberry is not unique, as
we find from reading our exchanges
that the same trouble exists in a
number of other towns and cities.
We have so often spoken of the E
good results that could be ob:tained
for the community by united effort of
all the business interests, that we re
fer :to'it again with some reluctance.
We cannot understand why the
merchants and other business inter
ests will not take more active part in
an organized effort to build up the
community, when such an effort
would 'cost so little in time and mon
ey and result in such large dividends ]
not only indirectly but directly, to I
their business interests. It takes z
money for such an organization to t
aceomplish resulits. ~ It takes united i
effort and active interest on the part
of every beusiness man in the com
munity, as well as money.
We notice from the Columbia Rec- t
ord that the same trouble exists in .
the city of Columbia, and that a
large number in proportion who do
take an interest in the Chamber of i.
Commerce, is composed of others (
than merchanits, and if such an or- d
ganization can aecomplis?h direct ben- e
efit to any .business interest in the f
community, that business interest is t
aiways represented in the merchants t
of the community.
We started out, however, to copy
two paragraphs -from the Columbia
'Record, and to commend them to our b
Dr. Mayer, as President of the I
Newberry Chamber of Commerce bi
~ha~s been active and energetic, but he 0
'has not 'had the cooperation of the ~
ensiness men that. he deserves. I
The Record, in concluding a busi- g
ness talk to business men, along this
''No business can operate withod a
capital. The Chamber of Commerce I
has no capital. It has never had. It '
is without resources. Its fixed ex
penses jus:t about equal its stated in
ceome. It cannot, in this condition,
undertake anything but rourtine work.
There can be no progress, no reach
ing out, no drawing in, no advance
ment of any character. It is tied
hand and foot.
''To accomplish anything, the
Chamber of Commerce must have
'capital, it must have resources. It
must be .able to more than pay thei
salaries of its secretary and stenog- 1
rapher, the rent of its office, the post
age, light and fuel bills, etc. It must
be in -position to do something before
it can begin to serve its purpose. If
it does not pay a dividend on the in
vestment of its members, it is because
there is practically no investment.
''A strong pull, all together, for.
Columbia's advancement, and for
dividends to every Columbia enter
prise, should be started at the an- 1
nual meeting next Monday night.''
LET IT DROP.
The Herald and News agrees fully
with the Anderson Mail that , too,
much has already been said of the
Taft lune-heon, and the intemperate
language of Senator Tillman and|
Capt. Gonzales does not help the sit
uation. No South Carolinian has any
grudge against the city of Columbia
or her people. In fact, we are all
proud of our capitol city and esteem
her people very highly. There may
be personal animosity amongst indi
viduals out of ColumIbia towards
some individuals in Columbia, and
and vf'ce versa, but these do not
constitute either the State of South
Carolina or the city of Columbi and
s'hould have no place in discussimns or
functions pertaining to all the peo

iat the editor of the State uses his

But as we have before -remarked,

Excelsior, Nov. 18.-The farmers
in this section are busy sowing wheat.
If next year should be favorable to
grain'there will be more bread made
in Newberry coun.ty than has been
for a number of years. This is the
idea and the farmers ought to have
sowed wheat all the time. A large
areage of oats also has been sown.

Mr. Editor, I have been a member
of the Farmers Mutual for a number
of years and I heartily endorse what
has been said concerning Mr. 'Obap

property destroyed by fire was mn
s~red in the Farmers Mutual why
shoculd the matter require any argu
ment at all. The Association should
pay him his loss and that would be
the long and the short of it.
