The Candidates Are Coming Out and
the Campaign Is Now
The municipal political pot is be
ginning to boil. For some time a
number of prominent citizens have
been spoken of by their friends as
possible candidates for mayor. A
number of equally prominent citizens
have also been spoken of as possible
candidates for the several aldermanic,
positions. With this issue of The

have come out of their hiding, or have
been brought out by their friends,

going to ask their suffrages. There
are already two candidates announc

THE TAXABLE PROPERTY.
Decrease in Personal and Railroad.

Increase in County.
The auditor has completed his ab
stract of the property as returned
for taxation in Newberry county. Tha
Herald and News could not obtain a
copy of this abstract until 3.30 yes
terday and therefore, can not in this

be desired. This year was the time
for assessing the real estate also.
The total value of all taxable real
estate in Newberry county is placed
at $3,670,055. Of this amount $1,213,
455 is in township No. 1, and $957,
115 in the town of Newberry. The
total personal property is $2,601,790,
$1,311,605 being in township No. 1.
The railroad this year is $818,346,
making the total taxable property for
the county this year, $7,113.794,
against $7,015,498 for 1909, an in
crease of $88,296. The total real
estate last yedr wasi $3,514,440,
against $3;670,055, making an in

The Herald and News in its next
issue will give some further figures
from the abstract as prepared by the

yesterday that we have not had time
to get them in this issue.
It will be remembered that real
estate is returned only every four

Calvin Bird, carrying concealed

How Is This?
Can't we have just as good cotton
markett in Newberry as any where
else in the county? Why was it that
the cotton market in Pomaria last Sat
urday morning was 13.45, and at New
berry only 13 -5-16? We don't want
to boycot Newberry cotton market, but
the farmers are taking notice of this.
