AS TO THE OBSERVER.
In a labored editorial reeking with
the insincerity of its farmer position,
the Newberry Observer, in its last issue
seeking to defend itself, makes a
personal attack, not upon the editor of !
The Herald and News, but upon the
positions which he has held under ihe
county and under the State. This dis- I
play of that fine courtesy which was
to be expected from one local editor
to another is a matter of. course, coming
from the editor of The Observer, !
who is an exemplar of newspaper;
ethics, and, therefore, thanks would be j
So far as the post office matter is
concerned, all the candidates were
tome men, and it takes little effort,
in a contest of that kind, to display
pyrotechnics in regard to the support
of home men. In the name of common j
sense, who could have been postmaster !
at Newberry except a home man? The
Hera.d and News and its editor supported
no one for the post office and !
' _ -cc I
fought no one for trie post omce, .
knowning it was useless to do either.
The editor of The Herald and News
was not asked to go on the bond of .
any one, and doubtless could not have !,
qualified if he had been asked.
The Observer says that it is not true
..that it has tried to "pull down" ,
Newberry candidates for office in the
past. If the editor of the Observer will ,
study his files he will see wherein the I,
error of his statement lies. 1

the days of the "Peanut Politics" editorial,
and before *:hat, back to 1888,
and since, the Observer has tried to
pull him down. The asistant attorney
general is a Newberry man. Even in j t

The editor of the Observer knows how
ridiculous is his statement that the

elected, would show their gratitude

such argument as this?an argument
too absurd to be taken seriously even *
from so sericus a man as the editor 1
of the Observer?might be conclusive- '
ly shown by pointing to some men
who, with the editor of the Observer,
make up a small "coterie." Under
seme circumstances and conditions,
such a charge would be a serious one. j
It is not so regarded here, coming as j

TRIP I>TO SALUDA COUNTY.
A trip from Newberry into Saluda
county on Wednesday was interesting
from many points of view.
Before undertaking the- trip, in- !
quiry was made as to the roads
through Saluda county; the condition
of the roads of Newberry was known.
Information was given that the roads
of Saluda were in fine condition. We
have come to the conclusion that the
average man in the country needs to !
be educated as to what is a good road.!
There were stretches of roads in Sa
luda that were good, but even in
these there were ditches and crossings
which required some slowing up.
At one place in the county, we ran
into the chaingang at work, and if it
completes the work, it will be a good
road, but the trouble in Saluda is the
same as in Newberry. Good roads will
not remain good unless some provision
is made for their maintenance. It
scarcely pays to build a good road
unless provision is made to maintain
The occasion of the trip to Saluda
was to attend a meeting of Red Men
of Good Hope Tribe. There were four
or five hundred people present. An
elegant picnic dinner was served along
with barbecued hash. The occasion
was a very pleasant one. This tribe
is doing good work for the order and
for the community. The tribe, while
it has only fourteen members, has
bought a lot and erected a lodge room
which will be used as a meeting place
for the people of that community.
The crops in Saluda county are exceedingly
fine, especially the corn.
Both the cotton and corn are in fine
In the party, besides the writer,
were Mr. T. B. -Kibler, Mr. and Mrs.
Wylie Koon and little daughter. The
trip was made via the Dead Fall road
and the Steel Bridge.
We hope Supervisor Chappell will

possible. It would not take a great
deal of work to put this road in fine
condition and the merchants and business
men of Xewberry should cooperate
with him in putting this road
in condition for the fall business. The
people along the road, we understand,
are ready and willing to contribute
with their teams and their la
bor in co-operation with Sup- :
ervisor Chappell in making a
good road from Newberry to the (
Steel bridge, a distance of nine miles.
A. great deal of trade comes to Newberry
from Saluda county this way,
and it would pay the business men of ,
the city to co-operate with the supervisor
and the people along this road
in a substantial way in order to have
i good road, and show to the people
}f Saluda that their businss is appre- :
