It is important that Newberry
shall secure an official highway be
tween Columbia and Greenville and
Spartanburg. We are on a direct
line between these points, and not
only the people immediately along
the official highway, but the entire
people of the county will be hene
fitod by this highway. Therfore
it should have our hearty -endorse
IThe spirit of getting ..ogether and
pulling together has taken hold of
the people of this community and it
augurs a bright future for Newberry.
By united effort we can aecomplish
great things. Newberry is a good
town and is set i the midst of a
fine rural sectioni, and there is no
reason why we should not go for
* THE IDL . *
Talking about civic improvement
in general and parks in particular, a
gentleman told me the other day that
he had spent % dy in Abbeville re
cently, and he was telling me what
a delightful town Abbeving is, and
about the elegant new court bouse
and the city hall, which includes one
of the largest and best opera houses
in the South, but the most lasting
impression which Abbeville seemed
to have made upon him was that of
tho beautilul little park in the ema
tre of the in strat 6pposite the
0ourt house, and, the little park in
front of he court house and city hal.
He said the grass was green and
pretty and the ilowers in bloom, and
the eement 'Walks around the grass
kept as clean as a good houisekeper
would keep her homke.
F.Pha goes & long ways towards ine
preming a stranger, aside from the
benefit which the people of the town
get from it. I was reading the Co
lumdbia State the othier day, and I was
very much impraeed with ani article
~wich told of the h.eaities of Ma
rion at this season of the year, the
streets appearig as drive-ways
Throngh a giaat iloWer garden.
I see'theocity counciis going ahead
to ren~t the Coppoek grove for two
years for the purposes of a park. This
is a step in the right direction, and
I hope the sheme will 'be carried
through, and a nice park laid out. But
this should be only the first step in
a good cause. While we are using
the Coppock grove temporarily we
ought to go ahead and buy and lay
out a pennmanent park. It's a great
thing. Don't you see how these peo
>le on the east side of 'the railroad
hock to the West End park every
night it is open? And there isn't a
finer park of its kind in the country
than this W,est End park, and Zack
Wright and Miarion Davis and the
ndll authorities did a great work
when they built it. And it's a shamze
end a disgrace that a corporation of
the size and wealth of the city of
New:berry ean't afford a park when a
leorporadiion which it inelude-,the
Newberry mifln-g ahead and
bailds its own park for its employees.
But it's coming, as sure as fate,
and I am mighty glad city coneil is
going ahead, even if the step whieb
eouncil is taking only contempates
the rcnting of temporary grounds for
two years. When we get a pr
for two years, we will see that we
can:i do without one, and then we
*will have a permanent park. I havi
been writing myself hearse on thie
subject, and I am proud that my ef
forts are bringing anout results. J
think Newiberry 's park ought to be
named "The Idler's Park,'' don'1
you? Thait's a fine name, and will
-give the proper :eredit. That is, ij
the temporary park will hand dowr
its name to the permanent park, he
cause, really, I think both should be
named for me. But I wouldn't urge
this if there should he any kick whiel
would interfere with getting the park
The Idler has received the follow
ing from a friend in iColumbia:
Columbia, April 19.-Mr. Idler:
Have you noticed the grand result ol
the efforts of the citizens of this city
io bnul for the V. M (. A. hbovs oi
every denomination and affiliation a
new home ? The subscriptions aggre
grated $86,367 for a new building for
the use of the youth of this commu-'
nity and strangers within her gates.
To help uplift and save from evil
ways should be a matter of deepest
interest to every woman and man
in our State. Give young men a place
to spend their evenings and meet
socially Christian people of charac
ter and influence, where example and
interest in their welfare will help
them to lay the foundation that will
be a corner-sone to a higher and no
bler citizenship It is the need of.
an. influence such as this that fills.
the pool rooms ana lea&s to lives of
sin, and at last the reckless find their
names on the criminal calendar.
Newberry should arouse herself to
provide a home for her youth. Let
her show a community of strength in
this noble endeavor and all take stock
in a grand assoleiation for the mak
mag of men. The old court housel
ean -not be put to a better use than a
home for the Y. M. C. A. Little effort
and little money will make it suitable
for such a purpose and friends in the
country will lend them aid for the
refuge of their boys.
Columbia has been visited by a
heavy electrical and rain storm,
which is a blessing to the farmer and
the merchants, as the dust for a
week or more was just awful on stock
The city is in a garment of green
beautiful lawns and flowers and the
grand old trees are a delight and a
Joy forever, to strangers and eitizens
The widle pavements are bejing
curbed and fine drive-ways are alive
with vehicles and the automobiles
crowded with young and old enjoying
"joy rides" over the cemented/streets
make a gay panorama of color and
style, in the greater Columbia.
Mr. A. C. Jones some time ago had
some articles in the Newberry papers,
which I read with a great deal of
interest, advocating turning the old
court house over to an assoieiation
for the purpose of a Y. M. C. A.
0uilding, and my recllection is-my
mind isnt as good as it used to be
that our dlegation in the last legisla
ture put throigh a bill to su,bmit to
the dear people the question of turn
ing over the old building for tis pur
pose, provided $15,000 was raised to
put it in shape.
oi- a. lotg tlie,t wanted to see
tae old 'hallaing kept n the square:
and put to:s6'me use, and urged that
somewhere in it rest rooms should be
provided for ladies who come to town
shopping, putting the building to
some public use of that kind.
If itecould be used for aY. M. C. A.
building, that would certainly be a
good move. But I have become some
what d:scouraged, and I dottbt if
anyth'ng will ever be done with the
old building in the way of improving
it and p,utting it to some pmblie use,
and I believe th.e best thing would
be, under the 'eircumstances, just to
tear it down. And then put a park
where it stood, and let the park ex
tend up to thre old central rock. You
see, I can't get rid of the park idea.
Mfr. $ditor, I see you have been
writing along the line of getting up
subscriptions for a Y. M. C. A. for
Newberry. Tfhat would be a fine
thing, and I hope the people of New
berry will take hold of it. Of course
you will have the knockers to con
tend with. The little knockers with
the little hamnmers are like the poor
they are with us always. Unlike the
poor, though, they could move away.
But they won't. I suppose all toWns
have them. I hope not.
Did you notice ho.* niely the
erossings over Caldwell street at
Johnstone and Botundary streets eame
in last Sunday morning after the
rain The people- going to the
churches could cross the street
wtotlosing all the religion they
hdbefore they got to chorenh, and
could get home without losing the
benefit of the sermons whfeh they
had heard. I hope some of these peo
pe v:th their little hammers who
have -been knocking my sermons will
take adivantg of these crossings and
go to cehurch. You can cross this
street at these places now even if it
dojes iain, and you won't hurt your
sl'oes, ei:bei. And some of you need
the sermore which you will hear, and
need them much. TeIlr
SICKS HIS DOGS
Senator Smith Looses Oratorical
Thunder at Attorney General.
Cleverly Entraps Aldrich.
Washington, April 20.-Senator
Smith today turned loose his dogs of
war on th aone mgeal for]
prosecuting the cottoni mcn, Brown,
Hayne, Scales and others.
The immejdi).te question up was
twhether or not the seqte should
vote $65,000 for further investiga
tion of the high prices of the neces
saries of life. Senator Smith said
-that he had been, in favor of this
investigation at first but that now
the thing had taken such a peculiar
turn that he believed no good couldt
be accomplished. This brought him
into immediate conflict with Senator
Aldrich and there was an interesting
"Do I understand," asked Mr. Al
drich, "that the senator was in favor
of this investigation at first but that
now the attorney general is investi
gating the wrong trust?"
That seemed to put Mr. Smith into
a hole, for while the contention has
been for lower prices, here was a
South Oarolina senator coming out in
favor of higher prices. But Mr.
Smith in turn put Mr. Aldrich into
a hole. Mr. Aldrich said that he
wanted an investigation to see wheth
er the tariff was the oause of the
high cost of living.
'"Does not the senator believe that
the tariff is the cause of the high
prices?" asked Mr. Smith.
"I believe that the tariff causesi
prosperity,'' replied Aldrieh.
kut you also have said that
prosperity causes high prices, have
you not?" said Mr. Smith.
Mr. Aldrich admitted that.
"Prosperity causes high prices,
and the tariff causes prosperity," said
Mr. Smith. -
Unfortunately the gavel fell just
here, time being up. But Mr. Ald
rieh was ma!de to admit as no Repub
lican had before admitted that the
tariff is the cause of high prices.
Sen,tor Smith in his speech declar
ed that the department of justice had
Blowed the beef trust, the steel
trust, the ones w.ho had -ornered the
wheat of the country putting up the
price of bread to go on without prose
Dution, hut that now when the fai
vars of the South by a natural mono
poly and by a shortage of the Orop
were getting a high price for their
-otton, the department of justice was
ingling out this staple as a sUbject
or proseention. .. =1l
. '' ventutre the assertion,'' he de
s1red, "that Browivn, Hayne, Seales,
Patten, and 'the others do not hol1d
5,000 'balas of cotton. But cotton
peulators in New York have sold
hudrede of thousands of !bales which
they never had, and n.ow wheii they
try to buy them a~t a lower paee than
the figure at whiiceh they soldt the ar
mers of. the South either have not the
cotton or will not sell at the figures
ofered. These men supposed that the
South would do as she has always:
done, put their cotton; on the market
at whatever price they could get for.
;Sam&al times in ,his speech, Mr.
Smith referred to the eleetions in
New York and Massachusetts and re
minded the Republicans that the ver
diet was going against them. He said
it was on account of just such be
havior as that of which thre attorney~
general was noW guilty, in singling
out the .South for attacek instead of
enforcing the law against the~ other
combines. He admitted, with con
sideable emphasis, tha.t he had tried
to organize the Souathern~ farmers
into a com1bin'ation. "Perhaps you
had better investigate me,'' he de
