Committees to Keep in Touch-Pros
perity Car With Newberrians
Goes to Spartanburg.
Newberry was represented at the
roads meeting in Spartanburg by Sec
retary q. S. Cunningham, of the New
berry chamber of commerce, and
Mr. W. C. Waldrop, of Newberry; and
by Messrs. J. F. Browne and J. P. i
Bowers, of Prosperity.
The trip to Spartanburg was made
in the Ford touring car of Mr. J. F.
Browne. Messrs. Browne and Bowers
drove to Newberry on Tuesday morn-i
Ing, where they were joined by
Messrs. Cunningham and Waldrop,
and the start from Newberry was
made shortly after 9 o'clock. Spar
tanburg was reached at about 2
o'clock, the actual running time being
about four hours, or an average of
more than 15 miles an hour, notwith
standing the heavy rains.
From Newberry to Spartanburg the
party found the worst roads in New
berry county, the Laurens and Spar
tanburg roads being in fine condition.
At the meeting at Spartanburg,
which was held in the interest of
Asheville highway, three routes were
proposed. Any of the routes selected,
however, from Columbia to Spartan
burg and Asheville would come .by
Newberry. The different routes pro
posed are given in another article in
regard to the meeting published in
Notwithstanding the fact that New
berry is on all of the routes consider
ed, Newberry desires to keep in touch
with the movement, and President
I. H. Hunt, of the Newberry cham
ber of commerce, and President G.
Y. Hunter, of the Prosperity chamber
ot commerce, have appointed commit
tees, .whose object it shall be to work
for the improvement of Newberry's
part of the proposed highway and to
give any aid in the matter that may
be possible. The appointment of these
committees does not mean that every
member of the chambers of commerce
of Newberry and Prosperity is not
to work for the movement and for
the improvement of Newberry's part
of the road, but these committees are
appointed in order that Newberry may
keep in touch and hold the advan
tage which she now has, and work
for the improvement of her part of
The committees are as follows:
Newberry Chamber of Commerce
E. H. Aull, W. S. Langford, C. E.
Summer, W. C. Waldrop, E. H. Kibler.
Prosperity Chamber of Commerce -
J. F. Browne, J. D. Quattlebaum.
It may be remarked that the party
which went to Spartanburg on Tues
day 'and returned on 'Wednesday
found the Laurens and Spartanburg
roads in the very best of condition,
and that the worst roads they tra
versed were in Newberry county. This
will soon be remedied, however, as
Supervisor Feagle is now actively at
work building Nwberry's part of this
highway, and means to make it the

NEWBERRY'S CORONER WEDS. h
A Romance of Newberry and Helena b
With the Marriage Chapter in a
the Mountain City. b
Up in Laurens they used to run
away and get married at Clinton, n
which happy place had become the 11
Gretna Green of many a love-plumed k
knight and love-crowned lady from o
the city beyond. But it remains for S
Newberry to select Sister Greenville b
to witness the culminating act in this d
little drama in which Coroner Wm. E. il
Felker - and Miss Virginia A. Chal
mers played the two leading roles,
creating a ripple of pleasure which
widened into a wave of interest as It
spread throughout the city. It took q
many by surprise; others had sus- 9
pected the coroner of getting ready 2
to change his single state, but not c
in the manner in which it was sud- r
It was news i.n Newberry early T
Wednesday mornin, but it soon
spread, and when Coroner Felker was
seen on the streets later in the morn
ing he received the unanimous con
gratulations of his many friends and
the earnest well wishes of all for a (
happy lot befalling him- and his esti
mable bride. He was the happy re
cipient of many expressions of de
light as to the successful accomplish
ment of his mission to Greenville
Tuesday, and especiall as to the
way in which it was accomplished.
The family and connections of the
young lady were not ready for the
marriage to take place. Fearing that
their objections would be disergarded
by the parties directly concerned, the ]
young lady was sent to Greenville,
where her uncle, Mr. Spearman Chal
mers, now lives, the whole family in
tending to remove next week from
Helena to Greenville. Coroner Fel
ker didn't like that arrangement, par
ticularly the first part of it, and it
turns out that his -objecion was shar
ed- by one other. At any rate, he
worked a scheme that was fine in
concept-ion and execution and which
will be considered. excusable and in
fact commendable by the universe, a
little scheme that wduld give writers
of fiction a base for a good story. It
was something like this:
Last Monday Sheriff M. M. Buford
and Constable T. G. Williams board
ed the train for Old Town, Sheriff
Buford going to see after Arthur Stev
ens, the negro who had on Sunday
morning shot and killed a fellow ne
gro. William. Carter, and who was
promised tot be surrendered, Con
stable Williams going to look after
the violation of the dispensary law.
Among the people to board the train
was Coroner William E. Felker, fa
miliarly and affectionately known as
' Mose." It was natural to suppose
that the coroner, being in ,the com
pany of the sheriff and constable was
also going to the scene of the tragedy
of Sunday. That was what the 'coron
er wanted people to think, although
he kept mum, as any good official
would have done. It was known that
Magistrate John W. Hendrix .had
held the inquest in .the stead of'
ICoroner Felker, who was unavoidably
absent, but the coroner knew that peo
ple wduld suppose he was going along
with .the other -officers to look after
matters connected -with the killing.
But what did he do when the train!]
got to Old Town? He went on. Bu-'
ford and Williams got off, but Felker
didn't He had other fish to fry. The
nmountain City of Greenville, the pearl
~of the PiOdmiont, Was his destin&tion.
He had his ey On the blue of ~theM
mountain's sunlfflii and the comet1 1
didn't bother him Meitdiy night.
Early Tuesday morihag, . in ti
bracing atmosphere of the grountain -
dew amidst the birds and flowe'rs of
that favored section, the Newb6rry
coroner' girded himself for the su-.
preme occasion, the momentous hour
of his life, the crowning day of his
existence. Proceeding to the resi
dence of Mrs. Roe~ rt Dickson, where (
Miss Chalmers boarded, Mr. Felker
had'no difficulty in seeing the young
lady, her uncle being at work at his
place of business. It was'easy going
to the residence of the officiating min
ister, Rev. Dr. T. W. Sloan, wh~o at
11 o'clock that morning united the
happy couple in holy wedlock. After -
spending several pleasant hours in
the city they took the 3.45 train for.
Greenwood, at which place they re
mained about a half hour to board the
cannon ball for homne Tuesday night.:
Mr.. and Mrs. Felker are at home to
their friends at their residence in
south Caldwell street, near the old'
Coroner Felker has the well-earned
and well-deserved reputation of being
an officer who does his work well
and looks after the saving of expen-'
ses to the county in the discharge of
his duty. The bride is a grand
daughter of the late Ebenezer P. Chal -
mers,- as honest and firm and true
hearted man as ever lived in New
berry or elsewhere. Her grandmoth
er, Mrs. Virginia Chalmers, .is living
with the bride's mother and family at
Helena. To the loving home that
misses the sunshiufe and-.joy of a once
appy circle, sympathy of a gener
uiblic is given, but for the fond m
ar of the family who was sto
vay and for the bold lover who stole
er, The Herald and News wishes
eace and joy forever.
The event, however, although ter
Linating happily, broke up a pretty
ttle arrangement which was being
ept a profound secret. It was Cor
ner Felker's purpose on the second
unday in June, to steal his promisea
ride# from a given place and quietly
rive to some minister's home. But
