Entered at the Postoffice at New
lerry, S. C.. as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday, October IS, 1910.
We notice from the news columns
of the News and Courier that the
business men of Darlington, more
than one hundred strong, have organ
ized a business men's association and
have employed Mr. J. E. Norment as
secretary and treasurer at a salary of
$75 per month. It is stated that the
business men in the meeting to or
ganize this association were earnest
and enthusiastic and that the organ
izaition is for the purpose of looking
to the future advancement of the city
of Darlington and the county of Dar
That is the only way to keep a city
and county in the forefronct in this
age of rapid progress and develop
ment. We have a membership in our
chamber of commerce, at present, of
more than 100, but what we need is
a sufficient income to pay a respecta
ble salary to the secretary so that
he migbit devote his entire time to the
advancement and the development of
the community. We need in addition
to that a united sentiment on the part
of our business men and a determina
tion that every one of them shall lay
aside his little hammer and say some
thing good of his community and of
the people who compose it.
Newberry and Newberry county
have great possibilities. These can
not be attained unless our business
men present a united front for tha
advancement of the community. We
must determine that the croakers and
the knockers shall be brushed aside
and that we are going to present a
united front when it comes to any
thing that is calculated to advance the
community commercially and in every
other way that means the very high
est type of citizenship.
LET THE WOXEN ORGANIZE.
We notice from the Atlanta Consti
tution that "the Atlanta women well
organized, and 5,000 strong, have put
themselves back of the fight for a
cleaner and more sanitary and more
atitractive city." They have set aside
October 26 as cleaning up day. That
will mean something for Atlanta be
cause when 5,000 women organize for
any purpose, determined to do things,
there will be something doing. If
we could get 500 women in Newberry
organized for a cleaner and more sani
tary city, there would be something
doing here and instead of the unat
tractive vacant lots growing up in
weeds, and the dirty streets and wag
on yards in front of the public square,
we would have an attractive city.
There would not be even a suggestion
looking to the repeal of the ordinance
taking the wagons from the public
square in front of the old court house.
If our women could all see the
beautiful square with its parks at
Greenwood and try to think how the
square looked before it was parked,
we believe they could be organized
for the small effort, looking to the
parking of our public square.
The city is spending plenty of,
money annually on streets to have
better streets, but this will never be
done until it is gone at in a business
way. We are not critisizing any of.
the city officers, but everyone knows
and will admit that it is a fact that
with the amount of money 'the city is
spending on its streets, it would be
economy to employ a man who knows
something about street building. In
other words the city ought rto have a
civil engineer and the work that is
now being done, if done under his di
rection and done as pe-manent work,
would in a few years show results.
As it is now we are just trying to
clean out the ditches to have them
fill up after each rain and whatever
work is done washed away by every
rain that comes.
We wish there was some way by
which we could arouse the women
of Newberry to organize and unite for
a cleaner and more sanitary city. We
have tried the men, but they are all
too busy getting rich to pay any at-:
tention to the aesthetic side of life.
It is only two weeks now until the
State fair and the usual low rates;
have been advertised on the roads and
special trains will be run. The price;
of cotton is good and fine corn crops
have been made and it is expected
that there will be a great gathering
of the people from South Carolina in
Columbia during fair week.
The collision on Sunday on the C.
& W. C. is said to be due to the fact
that the agent at McCormick was so
busy selling tickets that he forgot to
give one of the trains the meet or
ders. It would have been infinitely
better not to have sold any tickets at
all at McCormick than to have had the
terrible accident resulting from the
attention of the operator being at
tracted to selling tickets rather than
to the importance of orders which, be
cause of non-delivery caused a large
loss in property and a dozen lives.
Probably if the railroads would not
insist upon people who travel on mil
eage securing itickets for their mil
eage, the agent would not have been
About "Free" Passes.
If there is one thing the general
public envies the newspaper man, it
is the privilege he enjoys of traveling
or witnessing things on account of a
pass, the impression prevailing that
the newspaper man gets "something
Under ordinary circumstances there
never was a greater mistake, for while
there is a certain satisfaction in get
ting transportation or admission to
various places by presentng a small
slip of pink or green paper, where
others have to put up the hard cash,
still the word "free" is a misnomer,
for in return for the aforesaid bits of
paper, the editor has already given or
is expected to give, much valuable
space for advertisements or comments
that will be so favorable as to be of
great benefit to the person or com
panies who graciously bestow the so
called "free passes;" space that if
paid for at the regular rates would
usually far exceed the equivalent of'

A Foolhardy Grand Jury.
In opening the court of sessions at
Edgefield this week Judge Gage corn
mented on the congested condition of
the docket. The grand jury in their
presentment said in reply:
"We noted carefully your honor's
remarks concerning the congested
condition of the docket. We would
like to state that a large part of this
unfinished business was caused by
the presiding judge of our August
term of court adjourning court after
a two arnd one-half days' session, one
entire day of which time was consum
ed in trying a case transferred from
Saluda county. We are aware that
this county has suffered thereby, de
laying justice, leaving persons in jail
that should have been tried, and now
taking jurors and witnesses from
their business during a very busy
season, thereby making it a hard
ship, especially on the farmers."
No doubt what this grand jury says
is true. But it was a breach of the
proprieties to say it and this grand
jury had better look out. If it is notl
careful it will be called down from
the bench for making an attack on
