THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
The Chamber of Commerce of the
city hold? its annual meeting tomorrow,
Thursday. June 18th. Secretary Mc
Cuen requests a full attendance as si
strong elfort for some forward and ag
gressive work will be made.
Just one year ago this body was or
ganized for the purpose of unifying in
dividual efforts, consolidating energies
and concentrating them upon the growth
and upbuilding of our city. The busi
ness men recognized the fact that there
must be a unity of elFort if this work
should be accomplished; that no one
man could materially advance the inter
ests of the city; but that concerted ef
fort could work wonders. The purpose
in orgstnizing the Chamber of Com
merce was to bring the scattered ener
gies together and marshal them into an
active, operating force for the advance
ment of every branch of the city's life.
At the meeting torn rrow the time
would be opportune for a review of the
past year's work; a summing up ami
stock taking. What has the Chamber
of ('ommerce accomplished? Now there
may be some of our people who, through
lack of information or merely from the
habit of knocking, would at once an
swer, "nothing." We would beg these
to investigate or to put up their ham
mers, as the case might be. The Cham
ber of Commerce has accomplished
something; there is no man in Laurens
who can know just how much or how
little; some results of their work are
not visible and some of their activities
have not fructified yet, but are still in
Now, the point we would stress here
is that we should make the next year's
work surpass that of the year just gone.
Right here, citizens of Laurens, the
writer wishes to remark that he is as
sured of the sympathy and endorsement
of the people of the city who, he is con
fident, are thoroughly convinced of the
spirit that actuates his active interest
in affairs pertaining to the public good.
With this assurance he has no hesitancy
in bringing matters of public concern
before the readers of this paper. Re
turning to the subject, we repeat that
during the coming year the Chamber of
Commerce should strive for a closer or
ganization and put forth greater elfort
for the good of our city. That would
come under the general laws of growth
and progress; tendencies are backward
if not forward. Such an organization
as our commercial body could be made
the greatest of all forces in pushing the
enlargement and growth of this city.
Every man in Laurens should be a mem
ber, and an active member too. Half
hearted support to any enterprise does
not count for much in these strenuous
There never could he a better time
for the Chamber of Commerce to get in
some very effective work than right
now. If we are at all capable of In
terpreting signs, offreading aright the,
tendencies of time and the trend of
events, now is the time in our city.
We have the possibilities here of be
coming a great COMMERCIAL and IN-'
DUSTR1AL CITY. There is one way:
uniting efforts and concentrating forces.
The spirit of growth and improvement
has taken hold here and all it needs is
proper handling. Note the amount of
money I sing spent here right now ?
that is significant. The whole trend is
There are several matters we would
suggest for the considersition of our
Chamber of (.'ommerce; we have no
doubt but tint they are already being
thought of by numbers of citizens.
Among these the matter of a new rail
road station is of vast importance.
One of the best men in South Carolina
remarked only last Friday: "Consider*
ing the number of trains and the
amount of travel at and through Lau
rens it has about the |k>orest station in
the State." We are satisfied that the
Chamber of Commerce can do some
thing in this matter. Another is re
garding free city delivery of the mails.
Concerted effort can get this for Lau
rens Upon this fiscal (|>ostoffice) year's
record; we t.peak with positive assur
ance. Still another is the matter of
express ratc-t on money. Another the
disposition of the court house and
grounds after the paving is completed
on the public square. We are assured
that the city can come to some agree
mentor effect Bomo nrran
