NEWBERRY DEFEATS CLINTON.
Lutheran Boys Scalped the Presbyterians
to a Lively Tone on Monday
1 Newberry defeated the Presbyterian
college on Monday afternoon 14 to 5,
by hitting the ball hard in the last four
innings of play. Eidson, Newberry's
old reliable, pitched a splendid game,
holding the hard-hitting Presbyterians
to five scattered hits, while the scarlet
and gray batsmen secured no less than
14 safeties off of the two pitchers who
faced them. With the exception of one
inning, Eidson was never in danger
of being scored on, and was steady
throughout the game. Newberry's

exception of one inning caused by a
silght rain, which made the ball veryhard
Through the fifth inning the contest
was a pitcher's battle between Eidson
and Anderson, and each side failed to
get a man beyond second. The scoring
started in the sixth when Boozer
singled through short and Smeltzer
I ad Flnvd par.h beat out infield hits,
filling the bases with no one down.
Wise was equal to the emergency by
lining one out to left which Simpson
dropped after a hard try, and this,
coupled with a wild heave by Hill,
gave Newberry four runs.
Umpire Bailey called time after the
first half of the sventh on account of
rain. After an interval of about 15
minutes play was resumed. The Preshvtprinn<?
scored five runs in their half
i of the seventh on errors and two
scatch hits, caused by wet grounds.
Smeltzer, first man up in the eighth
singled through short. Floyd sacrificed
him to second and a moment later
"Clean-Up" Wise landed on one of An
.derson's benders for a four-sacKer to
deep centre, practically breaking up
the game. Hill now replaced Anderson,
and the first ball he delivered was
met by Keitt for a triple. Keitt scored
on a neatly placed single over second
In the ninth Newberry clinched the
game and turned an otherwise intensely
interesting contest into a farce by
circling the bases seven times on hard
hitting and a few errors.
Eidson's pitching and the batting of
Wise, Keitt and Smeltzer featured the
game, and pick-ups by Boozer and
Kent were of the sensational variety.
Shealy caught a pretty game.
The Newberry boys play WofforJ in
Spartanburg on April IS and 19. On

The Observer's Objection.
The Observer furnishes The Herald
and Xews a copy of its reply to the letter
of the editor of The Herald and
Xews to the editor of the Observer.
The reply of the Observer is as follows:
Editor Aull's reply to my request
for an explanation of a paragarph published
in his nanp.r nf t\hft 12th is DTint
UOUVU *11 w
ed in full in this issue. The reply is
not satisfactory; and I might go farther
and say it is lacking in frankness.
Mr. Aull ignores the point of my objection
to the paragraph quoted, and
goes off on things that have absolutely
nothing to do with the case. Of
course I understand that The Herald
and Xews is not the Chautauqua association:
if it had been then I should
iiuvc c^;ed the explanation from the
association. The slur was not prepared
nor written nor published by the
i -X T "VT*-. A * ? 1 1 f ?> 1 f
association, dui uy .ui. .nui
in his own paper. I think the president
of the association did exactly
rig'.: in assuring me that the association
did not authorize the slur as soon
? s he found out that I so regarded it?
t..is veiled insinuation that some printing
.establishment in Newberry might
attempt to get advertising from the
business Jaouses 01 ixt^w uei i / uuuii
tie false pretense that it was "authorized"
by the association to do so. What
establishment? Not Mr. Aull's of
course; for he would not warn the
public against himself. If there was
no other printing establishment in
mind, it seems to me?and I have no
doubt it will strike the public the same

Hunter was authorized to make contracts
for the booklet that the associa|
tion is to print, that there will be no
I other official program, and no other
advertising solicited in connection 1
with the Chautauqua association cov- r
ered the ground completely. Why go
further, and say "no one else has been i
authorized to solicit advertising for E
any publication authorized by the as- ^
anHaHnn"??the natural and in- r
w _ Jf
evitable inference of the language i
being that there might be some one
else in town who might try to solicit
advertising under the guise of author- ?,
ity from the Chautauqua association, _
and warning the business men against ^
such person. If there is any other r
meaning in the paragraph quoted, I j

Herald and News means just what It
And tiiat is his explanation. I must
say that it comes with a poor grace
from one to whom I have shown so
many courtesies and favors.
It may throw some light for the
reader on this subject to go back a r
year, when some person tried to make
it appear that the Observer solicited
advertising for itself under the claim
that it was getting out some sort of
publication for the Chautauqua. I
heard the report then, and knew of
course that it was calculated to poison
the minds of people whose good opin- ^
ir>n T value: but I concluded to let it .
pass, because I did not wish,to enter ^
a newspaper controversy that might c
interfere with the success of Chautau- .
qua week; which was close at hand, f
and to which I had given, and was giving,
free and earnest support. But if j
this sort of insinuation is to be a regu8
lar feature of Chautauqua occasions it
nlay be as well to settle it now. So
here goes for that:
j When it was decided last year to r
have Chautauqua week in Newberry I t
decided to issue a special industrial j
edition of the Observer?as The Her- t
aid and News is preparing to do now, ^
though on a much larger scale no f
doubt. This edition was to be gotten g
out entirely with Our own regular j
force, with the addition of a young e
lady for a few we^k.s to help solicit c
! ^ acin or onrf to handle the write- I o
-- ? c
ups. In pursuance of this purpose, I ?
published the following statement in t
the Observer of May 2nd: f

The edition v ill consist of a guaranteed s
minimum circulation of 3,000 copies, printed
on exUa good quality of paper, 1
with magazine cover. The advertising
contracts for a major portion of the
cnQ^p Hpvoted to advertising have al- a
ready been secured, and with one or t
two exceptions the business men of ^
Newberry have recognized in the pro- j.
posed publication as presented to them r
a rare opportunity to reach the people j
of this section, and have responded c
liberally and generously; in fact, to an r
extent which guarantees the success j
of the proposition. ^

the Observer's reputation?in '
ipite of this, it was whispered about
hat the Observer was getting adverising
by claiming to represent some i
>ublication of the Chautauqua associa- 1
ion. Hearing this, I immediately set
ibout to trace the report. The only
)erson that I could hear of who, it was
tlleged, had given an advertisement '
mder that suppositon was Mr. Sonlenberg.
I went to him at once, and
old him what I had heard, adding that

hat understanding I wanted to cancel
lis contract and release him. His re- '
)ly was that he wished his contract to j1
,tand; and it did stand, and he paicf toy ji
t very cheerfully when the industrial 1
edition appeared. It is possible Mr. i
5onnenberg thought when He gave the
idvertising to Mr. Gray that he was '
jiving it to the Chautauqua associaion?I
never asked him about that, '
or I was perfectly certain that Mr j <
>pv did not Diirposely mislead him. [<
t would have been an extremely fool- i
;h thing to do; and, whatever c!re 1
ray be said of Mr. Gray, he is no foo!. i
H all events, Mr. Gray is not with the '
)bserver now, and has not been for :
omething like six months; and when ;
Jr. Au 11 wrote and published the ofensive
paragraph he knew it.
Mr. Aull says: 'The Observer has
ls much right to bid for the publica
ion (meaning the official DooKiet to i
?e gotten out by the association ** as j
las The Herald and News." That haslothing
whatever to do with the case.
am not concerned about that puliation
in the least Since it has been "
nentioned, as a matter of fact though, :
will say the Observer was not in- '
rited to bid last year. I have no quar- ]
el with the association on that ac- '
:ount. If T am not invited to bid this j1
-ear T shall make no kick about it, and I
hall be perfectly satisfied with any | j
irrangements the association may;;
nake with regard to the official book- <
et or anything else that concerns the
"hautauqua week; just as I am per- 1
iectly satisfied yith their selection of
Mr. Hunter to canvass for advertising
for the official hoklet I will go further
than that, and assure the association
that I will gladly publish anything?within
reasonabe bounds of
course?that they may think will help
to make the occasion a success?provided
it is furnished me simultaneously
with its publicatiou in other papeifc

* ? -o-I
am not concerned about advertising;
nor booklets, official or otherwise}
nor about any money proposition that
the association may have on hand, or
in contemplation; but I am concerned
for the good name of this newspaper.
And that is why I have written this

Answered in Its Own Paper.
The Laurens Advertiser in its last
issue slinggs ink as follows:
"Judging from the baseball write-ups
in the Newberry Herald and News it
seems that the poor visiting teams
never make a creditable play, while
tnoro to <11 uro vo o Violrv rtf clrtTV orniind
tuv/iv Ahj ai vt aj o a uuiu u*. j ai vuuvk
a majority of the Newberryites. Why
not given both sides?"
The reason is that there is only one
side to give when Newberry is run up
against. This is again demonstrated
by the Advertiser's Clinton correspond-:
ent in the same issue of the paper.
"me Diggest crowd or tne season
gathered at the P. C. diamond Mon- I
day afternoon to see what turned out
to be the poorest specimen of the great
American game seen in Clinton in many
a day?except possibly among the
small boys. The score fails to tell the
taie?13 to 5 in favor of Newberry.
But every team has its off-day, and the
P. C. boys can play good ball as they
have demonstrated at the other games.
This is the second game they have lost v
out of six this season. They were
confident of winning over Newberry
as several fans had assured them they
bad a better team. Their friends are
sure they will reinstate themselves."
Yes, indeed, "the poorest specimen"
because Clinton was defeated by a
score 01 10 o in iavor 01 :\ewoerry.
rhirteen was an unlucky number for
Clinton. Of course "they wjre confident
of winning over Newberry, as
several fans had assured thein they
had a 1" r.ter team." Thirteen to five
'ooks li.i- it, doesn't it? It was cer
tain ly tne r. u. s "on aay.- jjou i ue
so confident next time. The "hali~of
sdory" still shines from the Xewber- /
of Airs. Johnson.
