VOLUME LVIII NUMBER 28. NEWBERRY, S. C., FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1922. TWICE A WEEK, $2.00 A YEAR
GOVERNOR SIGNS i
TELEPHONE BILL |
MEASURE BECAME LAW MON- j
Charges Revert to January 1, 1321
?May Appeal to Courts. Statement
Tho State, 4.
Governor Cooper yesterday morning
signed the Foster telephone act
restoring rates ana charges on all telephones
in the state, except companies
owned in one or two counties, to
heir status as of January 1, 1921.
The chief executive had announced
a hearing on the act, passed by the
recent session of the legislature, but
Saturday called off this hearing in
view of the fact that he had already
reacnea a concision. .
The act that became law is one of I,
the most important pieces of legislation
put through by the legislature
at the 1922 session. It makes null
and void increases in telephone rates
allowed by the railroad commission ,
and puts these rates, charges, tolls,
etc., back to the same status they ,
wrere before the railroad commission ,
* allowed the increase in March of
1921. The act also reestablises the
telephone exchange radius or alleged
"free toll" service that was abolished
' T-T-- |
by the general assemui>. ,
It was indicated yesterday that attorneys
for the Southern Bell Telephone
company will go immediately'
into the courts to determine the valid- .
ity of the act, the company having
fought the measure throughout its j'
course in the legislature. Provision j
is carried in the act for the telephone
company to petition the railroad commission
for relief and the commission
has authority to reduce or increase '
the rates to be charged and the rates''
.Tnnnarv 1. 1921. The com- ;
1H t-Ai yv v v ^ ?f
pany may go before the commission j
ibut an appeal to the courts is also j
(Statement by Governor
In signing the act, the governor
gave out the following statement in
regard to the act and the calling off i
of the hearing: j
"In view of the fact that I had, on i
request, promised a hearing before ,
signing this act, I think it is due the j,
public and all parties interested that j
I give my reasons for dispensing with ;
"The act is regular on its face. It
is very clear to my mind that should
a hearing be had it would consume
more time than I could possibly give
to it. But if I had the time or in- I:
clination to give an extended hear- i
ing, the most that the opponents of!,
the measure could show would be <
- that the rates fixed in the act are i:
confiscatory. The act itself provides j <
a remedy in casf- the rates are unrea-!
sonable, and I could not veto it in the i.
face of such a provision. <
''In addition to this, I would be j
very reluctant to veto any measure j<
of statewide interest when the leg's- j
lature would have no opportunity of':
passing on the veto until January of ;
next year. I think that any person :,
interested in any matter pending be-'.
fore any department of the state government
is always entitled to a hearing,
but where it is so clear, as it is
in this case, that I could not have suf- j
ficient time to give a hearing, and!
ir-hprp thprf- is ample opportunity for j,
the same questions to be submitted to j
another department of the state government,
it seems to me that the j
hearing is not denied by my acting ;
as I have, tut that it is simply trans-:
ferred to an appropriate tribunal." j
Provisions of the Foster act are as !
Provisions of Act
"Section 1. Be it enacted by the ;
general assembly of the state of j,

TAKES NEW TURN,
TEMPORARY INJUNCTION IN
UNITED STATES COURT
Company Must Give Bond Pending
Result of H^arlnr Fridnv.
Charleston, April -i.?United States
District Judge Henry A. M. Smith
this afternoon granted a temporary
interlocutory injunction against the
state railroad commission and the
attorney general of South Carolina on
the petition of the Southern Bell Telephone
and Ttlegrap company, which
changes that the law signed by Gov.
Robert A. Cooper is confiscatory.
Judge Smith requires the company
to give bond in the sum of $100,000
pending the result of the hearing on
Friday, April 14, wen it will also be
decided whether "the matter shall be
heard by three jud ges" as provided
in the judicial code. Should the telephone
company lose the case it will
bt? required to reimburse any subscribers
who overpay to maximum
amounts allowed by the new South
Carolina statute. The law signed yesterday
in Columbia by Governor
Cooper overrules the state railroad
commission's order allowing the present
maximum telephone rates and
prescribes that the maxumum rates be
those which were in force after the
period of government control. ;
<?> THE BONUS <s>
Abbeville Press and Banner.
Fred H. Dominick, congressman
from the third district, - is the only
congressman from South Carolina
who voted against the bonus to soldiers
of the world war, and in the
opinion of the Press and Banner is
the only congressman from South
Carolina who voted right.
Whv should the soldiers in the
World war receive a bonus any more
than the soldiers of the Spanish-American
war? Many of them, a large
majority, in fact, did not see the sery'r>o
r>r?7' onrliirp thp li;i rd^VnnS. whiph
members of Company A, of the First
South Carolina regiment, and which
members of Captain Perrin's company
saw and endured. j
And if a bonus is to be paid, why
is it not limited to those who actual-'
lv saw service on the field of battle?
Why should officers who never saw
the smoke of battle and who received '
far more money for their time and ;
training than they had ever earned
before receive a bonus, when this
country is tax-ridden to the breaking
Did the soldiers who fought in the
last great war fight as patriots as
did the soldiers in all the other great
wars in which the country has been
engaged, or were they after serving
in order to hereafter receive the
bonus money? It seems to us that
this insistent demand for money
from the public .treasury does at
least a large percentage of the men
who fought a great injustice.
The politicians say they are for a !
bonus because they promised their
constituents they would vote for a
bonus. We rather think that many J
cf them are for a bonus because they
are seeking the soldier vote. They
think to get the .whole soldier vote,
taking chances that the people who
pay the bonus will not be offended.
But unless we are misinformed the
taxpayers will be heard from as well
as the soldiers.
Perhaps after all the taxpayers
may decide that the war was fought
by this country to make the world
safe for democracy and not to make
public money easy in a vote getting
scheme by congressmeif. :

The following has been received
lately by Miss Ber>:?:
Last summer when I had a lot of I
vegetables I canned and pickled all
I did not have immediate use for,
not knowing then that we would have
such a great thing as the community
market. After it was started I
put in a few of my pickles, they were
sold in a short time and calls came
for more. You know the money we i
make ourselves is so appreciated.
Let each of us plant a whole lot in ;
our gardens and save everything by
canning, etc., for the community mar-'
kot. We will find this work a pleasure
as well as a profit.
Let's all try to see how great we
can make the market for ourselves
and others. i
