"It is the love of power that
herent and iceradica,ble. A nation
is only the individual in the aggre
gate and selfishness is the guiding
gospel of both." Wonder if that is
really true. Is selfishness the "guid
ing gospel" of evry individual?
Well, sometimes I almost believe it
is. It is all right to be selfish but
that varrow, spiteful, mean kind of
selfishnes which can't see to the
end of a flat, stubby nose, which to
injure a supposed enemy one goes
out of his way and in the end hurts
himself-well, that is contemptiblq
and despicable and hurts a commu
nity if very much of it is permitted
to take root in the community. Of
course there is none of this kind in
Newberry. We are too big and
broad and liberal and cultured to
permit it to take root in our com
mumity. Everybody in Newberry is
working for the. advancement of the
town and there is no.. display of lit
tle methods. Certainly not, except
now and then there is the mushroom
growth of a little shrivelled soul
trying to spring up, but it doesn't
Joseph W. Folk says, "There are
only two great contending forces in
this country to-day, On one side are
the advocates and the benefieiaries
of special privilege; on the other
are those who- stand for equality of.
opportunity to all." Which side are
you on? It may depend how far
you have gotten on the special priv
ilege class and how strong your rod
of power and oppression is. "It is
an issue between money and morals;
between dollars and men." Which
side are you going to stand on in the
battle for reform.
That was fine in the city coumcil
to put that street light in Friend
street at the union depot. This is a
city council that does things and I
have wondered why the civie asso
eiation has not been more aetive in
pushing some of those things for
which the association has been con
tending. Now is the time while you
have a mayor and a coineil who are
willing- to cooperate and who have
the courage and the backbone to do
things that are neede,d even if they
do meet opposition from some strong
financial cnters. That o*ppositzion
will soon fade. away but it takes a
degree of courage to brook it' and
