pecial to T1ie Herald and News. \
Union, June 1.-Our trip through
rom Newberry this afternoon, was
made without accident. When our
[achine came to a stand-still at the
yort house here, we had clipped off I
exactly 43.2 miles. .
You remember we started from Mr. -
Eunt's office in Newberry, and- came I
out the Caldwell road to Maybinton,
over Gordon bridge. We found the
roads very good indeed to within four .
or five miles of the county line be
Lween Newberry and Union. And on
this line- coming to Union for five
miles, it was .equally as bad as the
five miles on the other side. With
his ten mile stretch if put in condi
tion, one could easily make a trip
forom Newberry to Union in- an hour.
and a half.
And whether the Asheville-Colum-,
bia through-fare takes in Union on
the way to Newberry or -not, we are
going to:count on your people giving
us a clear track on. your side, and
our county officials assure us that/
they will put the road on this side;
in good shape right away..
Perhaps your readers will be in-'
terested in some distances which we;
measured today on the Caldwell road.
It is exactly 8.8 miles to the turn to
the right around towards the Gibson
place, and exactly nine miles to the
front of the house where we turned
to the left. From this point to the
juncture with the county farm road;
was 1.8 miles. Following this latter
road 4.2 miles we came to the old Co
lumbia road,'-where we turned to .le
left, and when we rolled up on '1.iger
river bridge, our machine rFeasured
21 miles, so coming via Maybinton
from Newberry, out thb Caldwell
Everybody here to whom I have
poken since arriving this afternoon,
xpressed great satisfaction over
'our willingness to cooperate with us
n establishing a good road between
Lere and Newberry.
Allow me to again express, in be
ialf of the Union chamber of com
nerce, and in behalf of the commit
ee going over these roads, our sin
:ere thanks for the very great cour
esies extended to us by your chamn
