CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
HAS ANNUAL MEETING i
(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3.) !
est of the town and county commer- j
? cially and socially.
Following is the annual report of
President Jno. B. Mayes:
To the Members of the Chamber of
Commerce, Newberry, South Carolina
?Gentlemen: I beg to submit my annual
report as president of the chamber
of commerce. The present chamber
of commerce "was organized about
' seven years ago. I have been actively
identified with it from its inception,
and for four years was a member of
. the board of governors. During the
year that I have served as president, j
it lias been forcibly impressed upon
me that the business men of Newberry
do not appreciate the value of such an
organization to the business and commercial
as well as social life of the
community as they should, and for that
reason do not give that hearty co- i
operation and united effort to the or
eranization which is essential to the1
accomplishment of the best results. I
am fully persuaded that we need in
( this community a sentiment that will
result in a more hearty and general cooperation
of all the interests for the
general welfare of the town and county.
We have a good town and one of
the best counties in South Carolina,
and there should be the most genial
and hearty co-operation between the
people of the county and the town, and j
particularly among the business men
of the town. Active interest and hear-"
ty participation in an organization
such as the chamber of commerce will
j do much to bring about such a feeling.
ThA membership at present is prac-1
tically tJtie same as it was one year!
ago. It is unfortunately true that some
of the largest mercantile establishments
in the city are not represented
in the membership of the chamber of i
commerce at all. If the members of I
C these firms would actively identify!
themselves with the organization in- j
stead of at times criticising it for do-1
ing notliing, they could accomplish
arvsnt srnrwi for themselves and the
As to the finances, the indebtedness
is about $225, and arrangements have^
? been made, through the IMndness and j
co-operation of certain members as- i
suraing the indebtedness as their per- j
sonal liability until sufficient funds are
collected by the chamber of commerce,
to take care of it.
Through the assistance of Mr. F. P.
DeVore. who was secretary of the,
chamber of commerce, some $300 was:
subscribed by the owners of automobiles
to be turned over to the county
supervisor, and to be used by him in j
the improvement of the roads. Onej
hundred and sixty dollars of this j
amount has been collect-ed and the j
balance is in collectible subscriptions.
There are several things which
should have the attention of the cham-!
ber of commerce during the coming.
year, add if taken hold of in the proper
spirit would result in great advan%

Last year a number of the citizens of

entire support and co-operation of the
community, but their efforts were successful
and they gave a week of pleasant
and profitable entertainment and j
without financial loss. The organiza- j
tion has been continued, and a Chau- j
tauqua will be put on during the month;
of June. The efforts of these gentle- j
rn.^n should have the moral and active j
ft.m-nnrt of the <\hamber of commerce. ,
The Boys' Corn club has been organized
in this county with the county
superintendent of education as
chairman, and he has requested me to
ask the co-operation and support of
the chamber of commerce in making
the cluo a success. This co-operation,!
I have most cheerfully given, and Ii
would recommend that the members;
individually take an active interest in'
the success of this club, and that the:
chamber of commerce as an organiza- j
tion show its interest by providing one
or more prizes. I understand that
there will be some 50 boys, who will
enter this contest, and there is no
more profitable work in which the;
chamber of commerce could engage i
than the encouragement of the boys on i
the farms in the study of scientific agriculture
and the growing of corn pro-'
fitably. These boys will be permitted i
to contest in the State and national J
- . .. i
corn shows to be held in Columbia;
next year, and if one of our boys could j
get a prize; it would be a good adver-!
tisement for Newberry.
The chamber of commerce should j
lend its best efforts to the county sup-;
ervisor and county commissioners in
the improvement of the public roads!
in the county, for nothing helps so:
much in the building up of the rural;
districts, as well as the cities tributary !
to them, as good roads.
It would be well for the chamber of j
commerce to have its committee keep !

I understand that the county superintendent
of education is endeavoring
to arrange for a meeting of the trus- i
tees of the rural schools to be held in J
Newberry sometime during the coming j
spring, and I would recommend that;
the chamber of commerce co-operate j
with him to this end, and that we!

for there is no more pressing j
need today than the awakening of in-;
terest on the part of the rural commu- j
nities for the improvement and the!
betterment of the rural schools.
- We have from time to time, for a
great many years, discussed the building
of a railroad from Augusta via
Edgefield and Saluda to Newberry. Saluda
has recently secured a railroad
to that town, and it is quite probable
that this road will be extended to
some other point in the near future,
and it behooves Newberry to keep in
touch with Saluda and to secure this
road. It is an exploded idea that the
building of railroads to a community j
will injure the business interest of
that community. On the contrary, the
reverse of this is true. Nothing adds
to the material prosperity of a com
munitv as the building of railroads in- j
to it, and Newberry should not let!
this opportunity pass without an ef- j
fort to get this railroad.
The chamber of commerce should i
also co-operate actively with the Civic
association in the beautifying of the
city of Newberry. I understand that
some public spirited citizens have already
donated a small plot of land for
park .purposes. With this as a nucleus,
we should have a creditable park j

of Newberry, and it is now time for
us to get busy.
There are many things that a body
like this could do for the betterment of
a community if thera was only active
and hearty co-operation on the part of
all of the citizens for the general welfare
of the community.
I can not close this report without
again pegging max an tne Dusmess in- j
terests get together and co-operate for!
the general welfare, and if this is accomplished
