A cellent address and explained the dif
ficulties and the methods of working
'up and keeping an interest in com
mercial bodies, and also gave his rea
son why the C., C. .and 0. railroad
should extend its line from Spartan

the greatest thing that Newberry
could accomplish at this time.
MrJ Hamby congratulated the
chamber of commerce upon the en
thusiasm and energy of its president, t
Mr. I. H. Hunt, and also on the in
telligent manner in which the mem- T
bers discussed questions pertaining to i
the welfare of the city. It is hoped
that Mr. Hamby's visit will be a means
of getting the members of the several
commercial bodies in this section of
the State in closer touch with one an
other and in more united efforts for I
the advancement of this section of the
President I. H. Hunt.

survey of the line from Clinton to

chairman of the executive committee)
of the Greenville, Spartanburg- and,
.jAnderson Railway 'company, we are<
advised that at the present time theyi
could not survey the line from Clintoni
to Newberry, as they first wanted to 1
get the main line built before they<
'would take up the building of short<
lines to other cities.
We think there is a probability of a
getting the line built sometime in the
future, as it is the opinion of most

We would not advise trying to do
anything more at the present time,
but keep in touch: with the people

there is a probability of getting the

The Alligator Rock BrIige.
Mr. C. T. Summer'spoke on the at
antages that have accrued to Nev
erry by the building of the ste<
ridge across Saluda river at Allige
or Rock. He said that this brida
gas half way between the other tw
teel bridges connecting Newberi
eith Saluda and equi-distant -frol
~rosperity and Newberry. This brida
as of great advantage to the peop]
f Saluda in that it put a good markt
earer to them. but to .greater advar
age to the business interests of Net
erry because it opened to the me'
:hants a larger field from which 1
[raw trade. The Saluda people pre
er to trade at Newberry, but the ferr
vas in the way.
Mr. Summer complimented the pet
>d~ of Saluda and stated that their
was a very valuable trade becaus
hey generally knew what they wan
d and were able to pay for what the
ot. The completion of this bridg
vill bring more cotton to Newberr
hich, of course, brings more trad
t also brings the people of Salud
.nd Newberry closer together and h
ras satisfied as soon as the bridg
ras completed, the merchants of Nev
erry would get busy in their effort
o secure 'this trade. WThat we neede<
not greater than that of the C., C. & C
railroad. The bridge would not h
worth much if there was no road fror
the bridge to Newberry and the roa
is as necessary as the bridge. He wa
satisfied that the trade would net
sufficient amount to warrant an out
lay which would be enough to mak
>r a good road from Newberry to tb
Is Mr. J. B. Mayes, who was also o
_ this committee indorsed what Mi
Summer had said that Newberr
ought to put the road in good condi
tion if she had to pay some money i
order to do it.
Newberry Needs the C., C. and 0.
M Dr. W. G. Mayes, who was one C
3t the party on the trip of the chamber
rs of commerce over the C., C. & 0. rail
ie road, said that this was a road tha
ie Newberry wanted. That the Newberr,
ts party had a most delightful trip in
)e the railroad people were exceedingl
ia courteous in showing them,,the coa
.t mines and the places of interest aldn
ie the road and he felt that the peopl
It of Newberry ought to do everythin
- that they could to secure this road.
2- Mr. R. D. Smith, another member c
the party, gave an extended accour
of the trip and the beauty of th
e scenery and the stability with whic
-n the road was built and stated tha
e there was no telling what it woul
_ bring to this country. He said that 1
- would soon be extended to Cincinna
e and when it is built from Spartanbur
A to Charleston it will be the greates
t trunk line in this country and he fel
it that it was bound to be built. H
o stated that they carried some of th
longest freight trains that he had eve
seen. If Newberry doesn't gef thi
railroad, Mr. Smith said, she will mis
1 the greatest thing of this age. If w
A can get nothing else at this time w
ought to make every effort to secur
this road via Newberry on its way t
>t Mr. W. B. Wallace, another membe
. of the party, said he had never at
a. tempted to speak to a party of gentle
Le men but he was .so enthusiastic as t
1l the advantages of securing the C., C
s & 0. via Newberry, that he could no
o refrain from attempting to say some
5 thing. I.t would mean a great deal t
d us if this road was built and he urge
t .everY citizen of Newberry to becom
t enthusiastic for the road.

Sberry, and he ha4l made up his min
o0 after hearing and realizing the enthu
s sism of the party who went over th
e C., C. & 0. railroad, that he was goint
h to take a trip himself over that roac
11 He said that there were a grea
ir many things that Newberry needec
d but he was going to speak of only on
e and that one is obedience to law. H
n said that Newberry was spending;
n great deal of money and the two big
,e gest items of expense were about $12,

e Magnificent Parade of Five Tribes.
Followed by AddAcbses at Park.
a Big Crowd.
Saturday was Red Men's day at An
- derson, and, with the attendance of
a Great Sachem Otto Klettner, of New
berry, fhe big crowds, the magnificent
parade, and the enthusiasm of the Red
Men and the people in attendance gen
s erally from throughout the State, its
- results will be far-reaching for the
t gopd and upbuilding of the order.
It was a rally which was inspiring to
every Red Man in attendance, and this
inspiration will reach hundreds of
1 other Red Men in South Carolina.
Great Sachem K-lettner left Newber
e ry on Friday afternoon, in order to be
present on Saturday morning. He
was accompanied by Sachem Jno. K.
f Aull, of Bergell tribe, No. 24, New
t berry, whom Great Sachem Klettner
e deputized for the occasion as great
a junior sannap.
t The events of the day began with a
parade which was participated in by
t five of the tribes of Anderson county.
The tribes were in regailia which
E were handsome and which did a great
t deal of credit to themselves and to
t the order. There were several very
e unique features, not the least of which
e was a squaw in Tecumseh tribe, No.
r 6, carrying a papoose-and nobody
s during the whole day had a more roy
s al time than this little fellow. Anoth
e er unqiue feature was that of Conas
e tee tribe, No. 15-a float representing
e a tent, in front of which sat a Red
Man, and Just in front of him was a
tripod holding a pot over a fire. By
r the man's side was a small goat be
- decked with ribbons.
-- Great Sachem Klettner reviewed
3 the parade with the judges, and he
said that it was one of the best dis
t plays of the order which he had ever
- witnessed. Two prizes had been, of
) fered, one of $50 and one of $25, for
I the two tribes making the best dis
play. The first prize was awarded to
Teeumseh, No. 3, and the second to
Conastee, No. 13. The judges were
i J. K. Aull, of Newberry; and Messrs
- C. N. C. Boleman and E. P. Vandiver.
i The prizes were delivered by Mr. Aull
- following the addresses at ethe park
The procession composed at least
-300 men. It was reviewed from the
t Hotel Chiquola. The displays -were
all so good that everybody regretted
a that all of them c.ould not be award
Sed a prize.
I When the procession reached the
'park, an exhibition was given on the
- baseball grounds. Afterwards the
i Red Men and their friends entered
3 the casino, where the addresses were

i pletely filled the casino, and, in fact,
- there was not standing room when
a Great Sachem Klettner began his ad
dress, and the crowd on the outside
was even larger than the crowd in
) The Hon. .J. E. Craig, chairman of
the local committee, presided, and in
r troduced Great Sachem Klettner as
3. the first speaker. Dealing with the
i bistory, principles and aims of the or
i der, he delivered an address which it
1 would have done every Red Man in
the State good to hear. He began with
-an appreciation of the success of An
) derson's home coming week and of
i the public spirit and enterprise which
had made it the great success which
.it was. He then took up the history
r of the order from its formation down
i to the present time. The principles
of freedom, friendship and 'charity, for
which it stands, he discussed in an
eloquent manner, :and he brought
i them home to his hearers, telling
them of their duty, as members of the
1 order, to keep true in their alleg
3 iance to country, to befriend a brother
Sand to extend the hand of charity.
t Love of home, of fellow-man, of coun
try and of God were included in the
principles of the order, he said. While
y the width of the blue waters of a
great ocean separated him from the
> land of his nativity he believed in
America, his adopted home, and
words than "Home, sweet home." The
spirit of a famous and beautiful 'poem
was in his words when he told his
hearers that love of fellow-man was
love of God, and that the way to shov
Eriendship and love of fellow-man was
to do acts of kindness and deeds of
sweet charity-charity, which, being
translated, really means love and love
applied, and which the Master named
as the greatest of the three great es
Great Sachem Klettner's address
showed deep study, not only of the
principles of the order but of human
ictivities. He was frequently inter

was given an ovation. -No synopsis

Great Sachem Klettner and Sachem

while in Anderson. On the evening of
thteir arrival they were taken for an

and many other courtesies were ex

they left they were most considerately
and royally taken care of.

rhe Tegalia and the floats and other
Eeatures were costly, which showed
the interest which 1the tribes are tak

large, not only of Red Men, but of

ler received in that section of the
tate is incalculable.

His last trip to Anderson was six
