Mayor Blease says that practical-.
r .the only complaints which have
,ached him have been from certain
arties in the city who have urged
iat the ordinance would inconven
,nee the country people coming to
ie city. He says -that he is willing
> stand upon his record as a friend
f the country people, and that as
e sees it, and as many others see
, the ordinance is directly in thet
iterest of the country people. It
not intended, he said, and never
,as intended, to prohibit a man
rom coming to town with a load of
iekens or other country produce,
nd disposing of it, but when one
ian had disposed of his load, then
was but fair that somebody else
ould have a chance.
All who- have given the matter se
ions ithought should agree that it
in the interests of the ap?earance,
e health and the business' of the
ity, and directly in the interesi
f every body in the county having
ny business in Newberry, that ithe
