CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
The Atlanta chamber of commerce
held a meeting recently to give a
boost to Atlanta and to the chamber
of commerce. Reference to this meat
ing was made in The Herald and News
sometime ago. We notice in one of
the Atlanta papers some interviews
with some of t-he leading business men
of Atlanta giving their reasons for be
ing a member of the chamber of com
merce. We take the liberty of quot
ing from this paper the suggestions
and reasons given by them which rea
sons might be sufficient for the busi
ness men of Newberry, and as the
Newberry chamber of commerce is to
meet tonight it seems to us that this
-is an opportune time to discuss these
Mr. Samuel D. Jones, who is presi
dent of. the Atlanta Stove Works,
"I am a member of the chamber of
commerce because the chamber offers
a good opportunity to thrash out and
dassify the various suggestions of
fered for the advancement of the city,
weeding out the bad, avoiding mis
akes, and putting the good in shapej
fQr Itelligent action.
"Becase it is well organized and
Intelligently directed and constitutes
the most powerful force we have for
the execution of such plats as tend
to the upbuilding of the business in
terest of the city.
"Because it offers an opportunity
for the Individual to assist in doing
much that he could never attempt
single-handed and alone.
"And last, but not least, it offers
great opportunity to develop the lat
ent powers of the individual citizen,
lowers frequently unknown even to
the individual himself, thus benefiting
the individual as well as the commu
Mr. W. T. Winn, who is a successful
Snsurence man, gives his reasons for
membership in the chamber of com
merce as follows:
"I am a member: First, because I
'believe the chamber of commerce Is a
good Institution for Atlanta.
"Second, I believe every citizen who
has the Interest of Atlanta at heart
should contribute his mite to hold the
"Third, I have .had occasion many
times to observe its splendid useful
ness to Atlanta, commercially, as
well as from a civic and economic
point of view."
Mr. Winn adds that the organization
has done more than any other agency
to increase the Atlanta popu.lation and
4f the chamber of commerce would
double its strength in the next ten
years the population would be double.
Dr. A. W. Stirling, one of the South's
specialists, gives his reasons for mem
bership in the organization as fol
"I am a member because I wished
to 'be associated with the work of
building up the city.
"The chamber of comnmerce has
been active and influential in making
Atlanta one of the most strenuous and
ambitious cities of the worild.
"If its strength is doubled it will
use its means honestly, and it will
also make itself still more beloved by
the other cities of the State, which
already take a lively interest in Its
numerous and far-reaching tentacles."
These seem to us to be sane and
sensible reasons and we would be
pleased to have the business men of
Newberry think on th,em. In co
~operation there is strength.
PLiNOS FOR EVERYBODY.
It would seem that every woman in
Newberry county who is the least bit
musically inclined is going to be giv
en an opportunity to secure a piano
free, or with certain varying amounts
of rebates. One concern is advertis
lng to give away $15,000. We are not
on the inside of this soheme and are
not permitted to give any information
concerning it, and It is only mention
ed incidentally to show the disposition
of the piano makers to place a piano
in every home in Newberry county.
Announcement is made in this Issue
by Summer & Hipp, the furnitura
dealers, that they will also give a
piano and a number of rebates. For
the particulars concerning this offer
you will find an advertisement in The
*Herald and News, and other informa
tin wil be given at the store of Sum
A coupon is attached to the adver
tisement carried in The Herald and
News today, allowing anyone to nomi
nate some young lady for this free
piano and the various rebates which
will be allowed on the purchase of a
piano. The nominations will appear
In the next issue of The Herald andi
As we understand the proposition
of Summer & Hipp, it is that for every
$1.00 in cash spent at their store
200 votes will be given for each dol
lar to the candidate selected by the
spender of this $1.00.
The piano is on exhibition at the
furniture store of Summer & Hipp
and may be seen by any one who de
sires to enter the race.
I An arrangement has been made
with The Herald and News by which
200 votes will be counted in this
contest for every $1.00 paid on sub
scriptions to The Herald and News,
either for renewals or new subscrip
In this contest you have the oppor
tunity of voting, not only on the pur
chase of furniture, but also on the
subscription amount paid to The Her
ald and News.
Now is the time to get busy. This
is no syndicate and will not take so
many votes to win.
It was published in the daily papers
on Wednesday that Governor Ansel
was going very carefully in the alT
pointment of a railroad commissioner
to succeed the late J. M. Sullivan. This
is proper, The governor shduld go
carfuily and as a rule his appoint
mebts have been acceptable to the
people of the State.
An intimation is thrawn out in this
statement referred to that one reason
for the governor being so very care
ful In his deliberations is the fear
that he might offend some political
organization as it is stated that he
himself is an applicant for a Federal
judgeship 'when his term of office ex
pires, and that he has his wires care
fully laid for this position. That is
all right too. The governor has as
much right to apply for this position
and to use all honorable means to se
cure - it as any other citizen of the
We can not believe, however, there
'is foundation for the suggestion that
the governor is arranging his confer
ences on the railroad commissioner
ship and angling in order to make the
appointee with a view to assisting
'him, the governor, in securing the
Federal judgesbhip rather than consid
er-ing the best interest of the public
service in making the appo,intment.
The daily papers state Attorney
General Lyon is undecided whether he,
will take up the Southern Merger case, d
which has been standing for ten or
twelve years, or whether he will come
to Newberry to insist upon the trial of
Mr. 'H. H. Evans.
The court In Richland county meets
at the same time that the court In S
Newberry county does and both casest
are set for the .me day.
Supervisor Langford Is building
some mighty fine roads in the Dutch
Fork. It is said that there are no bet
ter roads in the State than the roads
now being built by the chaingang, and
ere long the people of the Fork will
have the satisfaction of knowing that
their roads are in good condition.
Lexington Dispatch. -
We are pleased to know that Super
visor Langford is building some goodt
roads in the Dutch Fork and we hope 1
that one of these is the main road be- I
tween Newberry and Columbia.
We understand that Mr. Langford
is not doing any work on the Spring
Hill road. If. however, he will build
a good road via Irmo and Chapin toC
'the Newberry 'line at Little Mountain,
the distance between Newberry and1
Columbia will not be materially in
creased and that road may be used.
