Newberry: The city that does
COTTON MILL ASSURED.
The grttifying news is carried in
our local columns today of the organ
ization and building of another cot
ton mill in Newberry. The two mills
which are here have been eminently
successful and have been of great
benefit to the commercial interests of
the city. Another mill will add ma
terially to the importance of New
berry as a trading centre. The gen
tlemen who are behind this enter
prise are among the most successful
business men of Newberry, and it is
gratifying to record that they have
the hearty co-operation and substan
tial help of all the business men and
will be able to raise locally a very
- large proportion of the capital. stock.
Nothing was said about this enter
prise ntil It was assured. Every man
who can do so should take some stock
in the enterprise because it will not
only pay a dividend on the investment,
but will be of general benefit to the
community and will help everybody,
whether he be a property owner ora
wage-earner simply. The more op
portunities that are opened in any
community to give employment to
the people the more benefit will the
people of that .community receive.
It is expected that application will
be.made very soon for a charter and
that work will be commenced on the
new mill within the next thirty days.
Nothing has been said about the locar
tion and this will not be decided un
til the directors are chosen. That
will be a very easy matter, however.
It is exceedingly gratifying to the
promoters of this mill that this enter
p.rise is receiving the unanimous and
-substantial endorsement of the busi
ness men of this community. In fact,
this' is one proposition upon which
everybody is united and those who
are organizing the mill are having
the material support of the citizens.
ISN'T THIS TRUE.
When a fellow spends his time and
energy working up so'mething that is
for the good of the community, you
may think of some other plan along
the same line, after he h*as outlined
his plan, but don't urge your plan in
opposition t4a the fellow who has
worked up the movement. Let him
go ahead and 'help him to carry his
movement through, if he can, and
give him your support and encour
agement. If he succeeds, the .benefit
is yorrs and everybody's. If he fails
there is no harm done, and then maybe
your plan will succeed. Let's sup
port the man who starts a movement
that is for the good of the whole com
munity, and o whose plan there can
be no objection if it can be success
'fully carried through. If he has- work
ed up the interest in, the .movement,
then there would have been no move
mnent but for him. But, by all means,
if we don't support him, let's not
create division by starting an opposi
tion plan. Remember that if he fails.
nobody suffers but the people who
have tried to put it through, and if
he wins, everybody is benefited. Un
animity of action is a great asset for
a community. It is the sine qua non
of progress. If a community is going
forward it must have it.
That the sum of $25,000 is not be
yond the ability of the people of New
berry to raise, with reasonable exer
tion, for a Young Men's Christian as
sociation building will be admitted by
persons familiar with the city and its
people. From this it follows that the
Ssum will be raised-because the dis
position of Newberry to support an
ente,rprise of this nature is beyond

This is well said. The committees n
and other matters connected with this
campaign will be announced in a few R<
days and we bespeak for the leaders
in this campaign the unanimous sup- er
port of all the people of Newberry, an
including the women and children. ai
The amount fixed is easily within the ch
reach of the people of Newberry and 1l
there will be no balking or halting in w
this campaign. We are going to lay ti(
aside all selfish and personal matters ed
and get down together for the Y. M. l
