'GIVE US A 'SQUARE DEAL."
Fair dealing between man and man
is the crying need ot this, commercial
age-an age which has almost reach
ed what is sometimes called the ultra
commercial. Advocacy of "the square
deal." was what made. Theodore
Roosev.lt what he is today, and what
h' las been in the past, tIough Mr.
Roosevelt has not always, practiced
what he has preached. A very beau
tiful and a very famous poem has
placed one who loved his fellow-man,
and who loved his fellow-maa truly, as
the first among those who loved their,
God. What does it benefit us if weI
advance the cause of temperance-or
prohibition. if you will-and induce
our n-eighbor's cook to leave our
neighbor and work for us, without
saying anything to our neighbor? Sup
pose, for instance, a newspaper should
have a good reporte; and a rival news
paper should seek tc, secure that re
porter, "sub rosa," as nt were-even
if that newspaper should be an earn
est advocate-even a fanatical advo
cate-of things it believed for the best
interests of the people-even iZ that
newspaper should seek to take care
of the conscience of other people
would that newspaper have acted in
line with the teachings of the Sermon
on the Mount? There are some
things which sometimes some people
might take a little while off and think
about.-Herald and News.

Mr. E. H. Aull, Newberry, S. C.
Dear Sir:-Will you be kind enough
to say whether your remarks relative
to "a rival newspaper" in an editorial
in The Herald and News of August 19,
1910, are intended by you to apply to
Yours very truly,
W. H. Wallace.
Newberry, S. C., Aug. 19, 1910.
Mr. W. H. Wallace, Editor The Obser
ver, Newberry, S. C.
Dear Sir:-In response to your in
quiry of August 18, received by me to
day, I desire to say that the editorial
in The Herald and News about which
you ask was not intended to refer to
any one newspaper or individual more
than another, and certainly the aim
was not to refer to anybody or any
newspaper not guilty of the practice
condemned by the editorial. The edi
torial had no hidden meaning, and the
effort was to make the words convey
the idea which it was desired to stress.
It is for individuals, newspapers or
any other business to determine for
themselves whether or not it applies
Yours very truly,
F. H. Aull.
It is very distateful to have to go
into public print about a matter that
is so very personal as this is; but
there is no alternative. The Herald]
and News refers of course to the Ob
server; there is no other paper here
to which it could refer. It would have
been more manly to have said so
openly than in this sneaking way.
Suppose some newspaper has been]
trying to get his reporter, what has
that to do with this paper's views of
public questions? Why lug them in?
Why not confine the complaint to the
alleged grievance. How one runs his
newspaper has nothing to do with his
getting a newspaper reporter. So thati
The Herald and News might have said
all it wanted to say on that line with- ]
out bringing in the "reporter" inci
dent at all. We long ago despaired of]
running the Observer to please our co
temporary, and do not try.
The mean and spiteful inuendoes
and insinuations only reveal its ani-]
mus, and show how the Observer's
darts against deadheadism and the li
quor traffic, etc., though not aimed at
so insignificant a mark, yet reach the
spot and rankle in the heart. But to]
the case in point: let's see what there
is in it:
Some months ago a gentleman came
from another town to Newberry and
applied for a position as reporter on
the Observer. We were not then in a
position to offer him a place, and he
secured a place on The Herald and
News. Some days ago a gentleman
who had been doing some reporting
for the Observer was elected to a po
sition in the State Farmers' Union
Sthat would require him to be absent
from Newberry the greater part of the
time; and he told the Observer that he
would not be able to keep up his work
for it. We then asked one of the men
in the office to sound the gentleman
first referred to When it came in his
way and see if he were open to a prop
osition from the Observer, at the same
M me asking that he tell him that we
wanted the matter mentioned to his
present employer berore he took any
steps. This was done. Some days
after, meeting this gentleman on the
street, we asked him if he had spoken
to his present employer. He replied
that he had but that he had not come
to any decision in tne matter. We re
plied that if it were agreeable all
round we would like to make him a
proposition. and that he could let us
know and we could then take the mat
That was certainly as much cour
tesy and consideration as The Herald
and News had any right to expect.
There is a law in this State. found
ed no doubt on reason and good policy,
whereby one may not "entice" away
the "laborer" of another and N law
that puts negroes in jail for violating
their contracts; but there is no law
that says one white man may not em
ploy another white man without the
consent of his pres3nt employer. That
would be a species of serfdom and
"peonage" to which white men of this
part of the world would hardly sub

To sum up the whole matter: A
reporter on The Herald and News was
asked if he was open to a proposition
from the Observer and was told, as a
matter of courtesy, not of right, that
it was the wish of the Observer that
the matter be made known to The Her
ald and News before negotiations
were opened. That is all there is to it.
And there the matter stands.
