THE FELDER LETTER.
Some of the newspapers in this
State and in Georgia carried on Wed
nesday a scurrilous attack by Thomas
B. Felder upon Governor Blease. The
iletter consists of billingsgate and
nothing else-and we do not publish it
because we do not believe it should
find a place in the columns of a repu
table newspaper. If there were any
news in the letter, or if it were a re
ply to the letters which Governor
Blease has given out with the state
ment that they were written by Feld
er, we would publish it. But it is
purely and simply a slinging of mud
from the hog mire in which the writ
er seemed to be wallowing at the
time, and if this pronunciamento is
characteristic of thq one whose signa
ture it bears, the great State of South
Carolina was in a very bad way when
it ever retained him in its service or
delegated to him any of its powers.
The Herald and News shall strive to
give both sides of every news matter.
of interest to its readers which may
arise, but we shall refuse to degrade
the columns of this newspaper by the
publication of any matter written Lp
on the extremely low ana scurrilous
plane of the Felder letter. Whoever
might have been the object of Felder's
spleen, it is a matter of regret that
his flow of degraded invective should
have found a place in any newspaper
in South Carolina. |
While regretting the retirement of
Dr. 0. B. Mayer as; president of the
chamber of commerce, we desire to
congretulate the organization upon
the selection of Mr. I. H. Hunt as
his successor. But the officers can
do nothing without the support and
co-operation of the members. It1.
takes interest and work to do any
,thing. Let's get together and work
for the chamber of commerce, and.
through it the advancemnt of the in
terests of the city and county. The.
secret of success in working for the
up-building of a community is pull
ing in the right direction and pulling
together. That's what the chamber of C
commmerce needs, and that's what
SThe above is an editorial taken fromt
The Herald and News of March 22,e
1910. It bears repeating at the be
ginning of the new administration of
the chamber of commerce under the I
presidency of Mr. Jno. B. Mayes. Mr.
Mayes is energetic, enthusiastic anad a
man of ideas, and has 'great faith in
the future of Newberry. It takes a
man of that kind to inspire faith and
confidence in others.
, We desire to assure Mr. Mayes that r
The Harald and News is ready and r
willing at all times to give him what tj
assistance it can in promot-Ing those
things which are for the betterment of b
'the community. At the same time, e
Mr. Mayes just as well realize that he p
has no .bed of roses and that he will
not find his path altogether smooth.
That is if he undertakes to do things. B
We ,sincerely hope, however, that he ii
will be able to rally around his stand- e:
ard the best that is in Newberry, and i
that 'his hand may be upheld in all o:
efforts he may undertake for the de- ti
velopment and progress of the ccm
THE ONE THING ~NEEDFUL.
Mr. I. H. Hunt, the retiring presi
dent of the chamber of commerce, sub-p
mitted a very exhaustive, and, at the iv
same time a very practical address at t
the annual meeting on Tuesday even- ti
ing. All of his suggestions shouldw
have the serious consideration, not at
only of the members of the chamber bi
of commerce, but of the citizens of t
the community generally. .J
The suggestions which .he makes te
are all ae 2.c and if take ?s

great deal for this community. None
of them are impractical, but in order
to carry them to a successful termin
ation, there must be hearty co-opera
tion of the entire community, and this
is the one thing needful in this com
munity. But even if you are not go
ing to co-operate, you should at least
put no stumbling block in the way of
the advance of your town and ccunty.
Very few people realize, as Presi
dent Hunt says, the importance of the
public library, and if the arrange
ments could be carried out to unite
this library with the chamber of com
merce, it would be mutually benefi
The Herald and News has worn out
a number of pencils and typewriters
trying to place before the business
men of the community the importance
f a rest room. The same thing may
be said of the importance of securing
to Newberry the C., C. & 0. railroad
ind the road from Augusta to Whit
mire and the interurban trolley line,
but if the people of Newberry sit down
ind wait for these things to come,
hey may be assured that they will

ing of their own volition. ~ The town
that get things is the town that wakes

s not going to be the exception to
prove the rule. If we expect to get
:hese things which are suggested by
President Hunt and which we can se
,ure, we have got to get together and
wake up, and go after them.
At one time it seemed that we could
;robably secure a hospital. Several

roes out before we accomplish.
The Y. M. C. A. building was agitat
d about a year ago, and it seemed at
~ne time that something was going to

We are pleased that President Hunt
ailed attention to the importance of
o-operating with the Civic associa

The most important thing for this

There is no doubt that nature has

good county and a good people, but~
