? NEWSPAPER PUBLIC SPIRIT. *
It Is one of the best evidences of the
public spirit and unselftohnes of the
average newspaper to Bee The Times
and The Progress uf Union and the
newspapers of Laurens rejoicing in
the early establishment of free city
delivery. The unselfishness consists
in the fact that said newspapers have
nothing to gnin, but a god deal to
lose by the Innovation. But It is pro
gress, and a convenience to the pub
lic; bo they ure not only willing but
glad that It is soon to come.
By a strange hocus-pocus o, de
partment reasoning?not by statute
law?the minute free delivery is es
tablished in any city up goes the rate
of postage on every newspaper pub
lished in that city. This does not
make a great difference with daily
newspapers .whose circulation is most
ly outside of the county, but it cuts a
pretty big figure with country week
lies and semi-weeklies, whose circula
tion is mainly in their own county, a
largo portion of this circulation being
on rural routes that go out from the
city of publication.
For instance: There are seven ru
ral routes that go out from the New
berry postofTice. Before the establish
ment of free city delivery Newberry
newspapers, under act of congress,
were carried free on these routes?
"within the county"; now the postage
must be paid on them just as on news
papers that go outside the county.
This regulation?not law; for there
is no law for it, except deportment
made law?increases the expense of
running The Observer about a dollar
a week, or $52 a year. It will have a
similar effect upon tho Union and
the Laurens newspapers.
Not only so; free delivery not only I
takes a pretty neat little sum out of
the local newspaper's pocket, but it
refuses to do for the local newspapers
what it does for every other newspa
per on the face of the earth. While
its carriers will deliver newspapers
from anywhere else to the citizens of
their town, the law does not permit
them to deliver a local newspaper to
a subscriber. The reason for this Is
no doubt, that it was supposed that if
the city carriers wero permitted to
carry local newspapers they would be
loaded down with them. That, how
ever, would not be the case; there
might be a few local papers carried
that way, but the local publishers
would not care to wait on the carriers,
who go their rounds after the local
papers have begun to get old and

stale; and so they have their own
carriers to take their papers out while
they are new and fresh.
In Bplte of these disadvantages to lo
cal newspapers that come with the
establishment of free city delivery, it
would be a mighty poor and selfish
publisher that would not be perfectly
willing to make the sacrifice for the
public good. Still there are publishers
who cannot see any sense or reason or
law that requires an imposition of a
flue ,or something very close akin to
it, upon them because the city gets
