PASTORS AND CHURCH NOTICES.
The Newberry Herald and News
-says that it cannot get the pastors
-of Newberry to furnish information
to correct weekly a church "direc
tory,"' which it priuts and that it will
hereafter discontinue ruiAgng this
feature. The Journal had this exper
lence long ago and adopted a plan
which has worked well since. We
print the notices that the pastors
send in to be printed concerning their
services, and wheen they don't send
anything we don't print anything.
If the pastor isn't 'practical' and
businesslike enough to see the bene
tt his work may obtain by the free
advertising the newspaper is willing
7 to give it, that is his lookout. The
custom in Spartanburg is that nearly
every church is represented in our
church notice column in the issue
preceding the Sunday services.-Spar
We will be very glad to publish
church notices if they are furnished,
but it does not help the church nor the
paper to print notices that are ifcor
Tect, and as the pastors did not seem
to care sufficiently for the publication
of the notices in the directory to fur
;uish changes and make corrections
We have cut them out,
We believe it is proper and does
good for the pastor to advertise his
services and we are willing to make
the contr:uution -of space to do so if
the notices are furnished. We have
had pastors here who were too modest
to give out their church notices and
-who were opposed to the preachers
advertising in this way, and of course
those holding such views should keep
their names and their services out of
'the papers'.. . t
THE BECLTON INCID~ENT.
We really do not believe 'we would
be printing all that hullabaloo from
Belton except for the fact that in an
'unguarded moment we printed the
Arst installment, and noir it is up to
is to *ee It through. IPerhiaps lIt
would have been just as well for all
concerned If nothingr about the matter
had ever gotten into the papers at all.
There Is about the story that which
does not sound good; but under the
circumstances involved it -Is easy to
distort such things far beyond any le
githsnate Importance that could possi
bly: attacb.g-YorkVille Enquirer.
We Zgiee ~tir9e1f with the Enquir
er and up to this .time had printed
:nothing about the incident. Knowing
-Blease as we do and having known
him from his boyhood and having
seen a great deal of him we believe
the incident is greatly overdrawn and
highly colored. He may have a great
many faults, as we ill have, but we
have never known or heard of his 'De
inlg discourteous or impolite to ladigs.
In fact he has been known always to
be polite to ladies and to old people.
Those were things that wer instilled
into him daily by his father from
nis youth up and there must be some
mistake about the whole matter. Of
course we all know how easy it Ia to
take a part of any incident and have
a shadow of truth out of which to
manufactv.re a great falsehood. We
believe this incident has been greatly
overdrawn and we must have more
evidence before we can believe Mr.
Blease rude or discourteous to a lady.
We are printing a history of the in
cident in this issue in order to present
to our readers the whole matter to
'which Governor Blease was referring
* in his Young's Grove speech. .
Because he remarked that he was
*sober and feeling good and had just
come from a company of his friends
some of the newspapers are making it
* appear that he was drunk and are in
.sulting his friends by saying that they
are given to drunkenness or words
* .that mean the same thing. That re
mark was no doubt made to emphasize
the fact that under no other condi
tions could he possibly have been rude
to a lady. It is unfortunate that the
press of the State shows such a dis
position to deal unfairly and to mag
nity any incident which it is hoped
may e usdit the hurt af the gov
We do not think that Gov. Blease
strengthens his position by applying
ugly epithets to his remarks about
,those who are misreprensenting him.
His position would have been stronger
if his reply had been more dignified.
We can understand that his position
has been very trying, and'yet with the
thinking people nothing is added by
applying ugly epithets or calling the
other fellow names.
THE LAW CALLED TO ATTENT1N
It seems that the Federal govern
ment in the matter of its postal regu
lations is endeavoring to do every
thing that is possible to annoy the
legitimate publisher. It is claimed
that the effort is to get after those who
are trying to take advantage of the
free and the low rate given the news
papers. We suppose that ievery pub
lisher finds that there are times when
papers are sent that are not delivered
on account of failure o.f the subscrib
er to give the change in his address,
but The Herald and News does not
send the paper to any one who has
not paid for it and, yet, sometimes, it
happens that the subscriber may move
his address and not notify the office
until several papers have been sent.
It seems that in May, 1910, Congress
passed an act, requiring that these
papers be returned to the publisher,
if not called for, and that the pubJ1s
er pay fpr the return at the th-r4
The following is a copy of the act
as printed on the cards, which are
used to notify publishers:
"Hereafter when copies of any pub-,
lication of the second class mailed by
a publisher at the pound rate or free
in the county of publication, are unde
liverable at the address thereon, the
postmaster at the office of destination
shall promptly notify the publisher of
the fact, giving the reason therefor,
and- copies received five weeks after'
the mailing of the notice to the pub
tisher, and in no Instance until two
suCCeSsiv. issueg~ thereof lave beexi
published, shall, under such regula
tions as the postmaster general may
prescribe, be separately returned to
the publisher thereof charged with
postage at the third-class rate. All
laws and parts of laws In conflict with
this act are hereby repealed. (Act of
May 12, 1910.)"
Just last week we sent the paper to
a subscriber, who is paid up until
next Jarnuary, and he happened to
move his address, and without notice
to us at all, the postmaster returns
it and requires one cent to 'be paid.
As wre understand this notice, which
we copy, the postmaster is required
to notify the pubHisher and to give
him five weeks In which to correct
his ma1ling list. The paper we have
returned is of July 28, and it came
back without any notice whatever ei$
cept the notice to pay the one cent on
SURELY IT IS XISTAKEN.
We are afraid the usually sane and
saf4 News and Courier has allowed
passion to get the better of reason.
We desire to call the att:ention of our
cotemporary to some of the things it
has recently said.
Several days ago the News and
Courier had an editorial in which it
made this assertion: "Governor Blease
has his following, the foundations of
which are vice and ignorance and pre
Leaving aside the fact that Gover
nor Blease last summer received the
votes of a majority of the white cit
izens of South Carolina-for the News
and Courier may not admit and prob
ably does not admit that he has the
same following now-we talge this
sentence from the same .editorial:
"But his defeat for either position
(governor or United States senator),
assuming that he will be a candidate
for either the one or the other, is not
to be taken for granted."
Surely the News and Courier does
not mean to say that the following of
Governor Blease has its foundation in
"vice and ignorance and prejudice"
when it says that it is not to be taken
for granted that a majority of the
white voters of South Carolina will
not be his followers next summer.
In an editorial in the News and
curs: "It will not be wise at this time
to credit the governor with less than
35,000 votes, and that is enough to put
him in the second primary in case
the opposition vote is split in a first
pr.iary, and might be enough to as
sure him a second victory should the
minds of the people again be inflamed,
as they were before."
Surely the News and Courier would
not say that a following of not less
than 35,000 white Voters of South
Carolina had its foundations in "vice
and ignorance and prejudice."
Sometimes prejudice becomes so
extreme that it sees only prejudice in
others, but it ought never to become
so extreme as to charge a following
which last summer included a major
ity of the white voters of the State,
and which is admitted by the News
and Courier today to include not less
than a third of the white voters of the
State, with having its "'foundations"
in "vice and ignorance and prejudice."
The Spartanburg Hierald says there
are two important things that are of
interest to the business community of
Spartanburg that are now under con
sideration. These two things should
in a way be of interest to Newberry.
One of them and probably the most
far reaching is the lease of the Clinch-.
field road'by the Chesapeake and Ohio.
and the Seaboard and the other is the
clearing up of " the interurban situa
The lease of the Clinchfield is prac
tically certain and if it is accomplish
ed it means the coming into the Soutlh
of one of the biggest railroad systems
in the country. Newberry's interest
comes in by the fact that it is not
likely the road will deoire to stop at
Spartanburg but iivill desire to work
its way on into Florida and towarmE
the Panama canal. We should be able
to show the officials and those who
have their money in it that the way
to extend is from Sparta.nburg across
the State to Augusta via Newberry.
The Herald says of the lease of the
Clinchfield; . . . ..,- .
"This magnificent property will in
all pyobability be taken over by the
Chesapeake & ohio and the Seaboard
Air Line railroads jointly. On the
15th of this month there will be a
meeting of the~ directors of the Sea
board in -Baltimore, at which time it
is believed a final decision in tblls
matter will be reached. And there is
reason to believe that the decision wil
be in favor of the lease.. The con-i
summation of this, lease means the
entrance into the South, throughi
Spartanburg, of the Chesapeake &
hio railroad, one of the great rafl
way systems of the -country, serving
the middle west and having a line into
