Tuesday, September y, uxo.
"We notice that ou:r good friend, A.
* W. Knight, has made a discovery. He
has found out that the Southern Railway
and possibly some other railroads
are sending out specially prepared
articles giving information
about the work the railroads are do
ing and that these awful newspapers
that .have an exchange arrangement
with the railroads are publishing
these articles and are thus fooling the
people. It must be a terrible thing.
How weak some of the editors are,
and how strong some are.
As a matter of f*ct the railroads do
send some special arncies giving information
as to what they are doing
and changes in their officers, and
sometimes these articles are published
and sometimes they are not. We
have received a good many of them.
"When we think they have a news value
to our readers we print them and
when we think thev do not we do not
nrint thpm The newsnaoer is under
no compulsion or anything else to
print them. For instance here .is
one we did not print because we did
not think our readers/would be interested
in who represented the Southern
Railway and affiliated lines at Denver,
though it was printed in one of the
leading dailies of the State as a spec
:al from wasningion:
"Washington, D. C., September 3.?
An office of the Land and Industrial
department of jthe Southern Railway,
Mobile and Ohio Railroad, and Georgia
Southern and Florida was established
at Denver, Colo., September
1st with H. R. Buckey in charge with
the title of Traveling Agent. The
opening of tie Denver office will extend
the work of Southern Railway
affiliated lines in tne solicitation
of immigration and industries farther
into the "Western States and
should prove of value to the entire
southeastern States. Mr. Buekey is
ai experienced man, having assisted
**n the preparation of exhibits of
Southern products made by the Southern
and. affiliated lines at fairs in the
Xorth and West and is thoroughly
conversant with conditions in the
Southeast and with the many attrac
tions which this section offers to the
We do not see anything wrong in
this item or anything in it that would
unduly and improperly influence any
cne in favor of the railroad.
We fear that our brethren who
have gotten religion have gone too far
in their efforts to protect the dear
people. It has not been so very long
since Brother Knight and the members
of his family rode on passes issued
by these same corporations and
we are sure he did not feel then that
he had sold his influence and that of
his paper to the railroad. Why should
he think now that others are doing
There is nothing clandestine in
these articles sent out by the rail'
roads and there :s absolutely no compulsion
in any contract with the railroad
to print them. Sometimes they
contain good news items and they are
used. When they do not contain news
of value to our readers as we understand
it we consign them to the waste
basket ancUthat is the end of it. Cur
friend is unduly alarmed about nis
brethren. They are not deceiving or
deluding the public. Neither are the
railroads endeavoring to do so. The
railroads are interested in the development
of the country they traverse,
and have done a great deal in
the development of the country.
SOT FRIENDLY TO STATE COLLEGES."
The Yorkville Enquirer, The
Herald and News of Xewberry, and
The Greenwood Journal, judging
from their recent utterances, do not
seem to he too friendly towards the
State colleges. The Journal and The
Herald and News even go so far as
to say "that it is no part of the duty
of the State to furnish .higher education.''
The Yorkville paper chimes
in with this, "When some strong,
capable leader takes up this question,
in the right kind of way he is going
to revolutionize our whole educational
system, with the result that the
higher institutions will lose their
present strong grip."
While we are tsrong advocates of
j the common schools and would like j
to see them get every dollar the State j
can afford to give them, we do not
want to see the State colleges lose
"their present strong grip,'' whatever
that expression may mean. Bettpr
vp both common schools and
colleges a better grip than to
loosen th$ "grip"' of either. Such
institutions as the Citadel. South
Carolina College, Clemson and Winthrop
are doing too great a work in
educating, enlightening arid broadening
the rising generation for any
| of us to wish to cripple them. God
I knows South Carolina is woefully in
I need of ail the colleges, both State
! and denominational, as we'il as all
| the common schools she can get.?
The Lancaster News does The Herald
and News an injustice ir. not quoting
the position of The Herald and
News in full. We do not think it is
the province of the State to furnish
higher education, but we said also
that we did not intend to.butt our
head against a brick wall. The policy
of this State for a hundred years, and j
of every other State has been to fur-j
nish higher institution of learning,'
and the history of education shows
that no country ever had a flourishj
ing system of common schools that
' did not nourish and maintain higher
institutions of learning, and we do
not oppose these institutions. We did
s&y ana repeat uiai ?c imun mc
scholarships should be cut out and
that these higher institutions should
be more economically run. We think j
South Carolina is spending too much
money on higher education in proportion
to what she is spending for
the common schools.
You know that more than ninety
per cent of the children of the State
| never go to college, ana yet tne ?iaxe
is spending about fifty per cent as
much money on the less than ten per
cent as she is spending on the more
than ninety per cent for education.
There is where *:he "revolution'' about
which the Enquirer talks will come,
if it comes at all. The great problem
before the American people today is
the problem of the rural school. If
the members of our legislature would
take a trip to some of our country
schools, instead of one of these trips
to Winthrop or the Citadel or Clemson
and see conditions as they exist,
we believe they would provide more
generously for the country school
and be just a little bit more careful
in some of the expenditures of the
colleges. That is the point we were
trying to impress.
We are inclined to think that Mr.
Fred Schumpert's criticism of the
automobile owners in the matter of
working the roads is not justified. If
if l'e hotter nnt make it. The thing
we want to do is to get all the people
together on the road question and we
cannot do it by making comparisons
and finding fault. Besides, the road
to which Mr. Schumpert refers is not
one used to any great extent by the
automobiles. The thing for Mr.
| Schumpert to do is to encourage
every one who helped in tne making j
of this road and try to get them to ex- j
tend their efforts on the road on to
Newberry. This road will be of benefit
to all the people in the New Chapel
section and of especial benefit to the
merchants of Newberry.
Mr. Schumpert told us that the
farmers along this road would give a
team to help the work on this road
: to Newberry for one day for every
i three dollars which the merchants of j
. Newberry would contribute in the >
! making of this road. That is the point!
| The Herald and News would like to j
! stress. We want Mr. Schumpert to
(help us stress it. .And then we want j

| Tiis is a very important read for
Newberry merchants. There is just;
lots of trade and numbers of people
that come to Newberry from the Salu- j
da side of the river, and it is to the
,interest of the Newberry merchants:
to hold out every legitimate :induce
. ment to keep these good people com-1
ing this way. The best inducement
that could be handed to them is a i
good road to the river. There are'
some terribly bad places in this road
, and it would take only a little time
and labor to repair t&em. Lei. every

Mr. Editor, a great deal is being said at 1
about good roads ^a.nd how to have tha
them. A two dollar commutation tax j for
for road purposes will never give us j off
any better roads and then this is too | pet'
much of a one sided affair; the inten-; cha
tion may be good but it will never que
improve the roads. A part pay the are
two dollar road tax* and the other part app
pay nothing and do no work either, rati
The people waste time enough to Suc
keep tfne roads in goqd condition but1 ten<
yet it seems they would rather pay a | no
tax for road purposes or rather for ' sen
road building than to do the work j loss
themselvecs. Now really we all like j see
to have good roads and we all know cles
they have to be kept in good condition ren
one way or the other. All talk will Sen
never work any road neither can the put
chain gung work all the roads so we fit.
just want to say if the people would j
rather pay tax and not just a part and j
themselves put on a road tax that will Sen
work the roads and then let all pay i A
the road tav and not just a part and | of
the other part do nothing. A two j gee
dollar road tax will never do it. ! Soi
