NEW COUNTY SCHEMES
Propositions Involved by Which Coun
ty would Gain from Lexington and
Lose to "MnsgroTe."
Newberry, Oct. 26.?A party of
Newberrians went down to Chapln
yesterday in autos to talk with the
citizens there about the proposed ad
dition of that portion of Lexington
county to Newberry. In the party
were Fred H. Domlnlck, H. L. Parr.
Jno. M. Klnard, Cannon G. Dlease.
Eugene S. Werts. W. B. Waldrop. C.
E. Summer of Newberry and Dr. C. T.
Wyche of Prosperity. Forty or fifty
of the citizens of Chapln met with
the Newberry party in the school
building. Win. M. Wilson of Peak
was chairman of the meeting, and
Mr. Frick was secretary. The New
berry delegation assured the meet
ing that they would be delighted to
welcome the people of Chapln into
the county and thought it would be a
matter of mutual benefit if they
should come in. Tho Chapln men had
very little to say In the meeting.
Charles P. Robinson made a short
talk, in which he said that he had
not thought much auout the matter
and had not made up his mind about
it and did not know how he would
vote were the proposition submitted.
That appeared to express pretty cor
rectly the feeling in Chapln. On mo
tion the chairman was authorized to
appoint a committee of five to can
vass the situation and ascertain the
feeling of the territory proposed to
be cut off into Newberry and to as
certain as far as practicable the
wishes of the people Interested; this
committee to be appointed at the leis
ure of the chairman and to make
report to a subsequent meeting. The
committee will ascertain as far as it
can what portion of the people
wish to remain with Lexington, what
portion wish to become a part of Rich
land and what portion wish to come
There has been talk some time
among the people of Peak and the ad
jacent country of asking for an elec
tion on the question of voting that
portion of Lexington into Newberry,
and the sentiment there is said to be
strongly in favor of the change, the
main question now being as to how to
run the line westward from Hroad
river towards Saluda.
Another county scheme Is interest
ing the people here. The people of
Clinton are very aggressiv and earn
est in pushing their scheme of - the
proposed ney county of Musgrove,
with Clinton as the capital. To get
the necessary 100 suuare miles, they
will have to cut pretty deep into New
berry county. Tlwy have already
made a survey of a line from Enoree
river to Saluda?a straight line about
30 miles long, cutting of! a strip of
Newberry about throe miles mide, in
cluding In this strip Whltmlre, KT
nards, Belfast, Dominicks, Garys.
Longshore. Vaughanvllle and so on.
Under the State constitution, not more
than 94 square miles can be taken
from Newberry as it now stands, and
the Cllntonians seem disposed to take
"all the law allows," Newberry's pres
ent area is 594. and no old county can
be reduced to less than 5>00. Of course
Newberry does not wish to lose any
portion of the county, and would be
especially sorry to lose such a line
part as that embraced in the "Mus
grove county" survey.
The cotton market was lively today:
In fact, for the past three days there
has been a lot of cotton sold here?
averaging 500 bales a day.
We have just received a handsome
line of Davenport Beds in mahogany,
Koldea oak and mission finishes, price

Will The REAL FREEMEN
Uphold Wilson's Hands?
Woodrow Wilson has refused emphatically to accept contributions to
his Campaign Fund from the Interests, from corrupting influences, from
any questionable sources.
He has given us, the Democratic National Committee, to understand
that he will go into the White House with clean hands or not at all.
Who Is Getting The Money
of The Trusts?
So sure has been Wilson's stand, so well known his incor
ruptible purpose, that no private interests have dared to
approach either our candidate or his committee.
Wc h ive not been offered a penny by the trusts, and
we certainly have not solicited a penny Irom thctn. The
money of the interests is being spent againtt WiUon. No
matter (or whom?wc need not discuss that here it is now
common gossip that the money power of the nation is being
used in an attempt to defeat Woodrow Wilson.
What Is a "Peopled Campaign?"
Wc are addressing ourselves to the real freemen of
America, the upright, Progressive Voters ol the country
who are doing the work o( the nation and not the work of

is raised by the very forces wc seek to defeat and wh'm we

there is only one source of tuch money?from the voters ol
the country who realise the importance of having a goverav
ment uninfluenced by the almighty dollar.
Wilton's handt are clean.
Will yeu uphold them?
How Much Money Will You Give?
How Much Can You Raise?
There are big campaign expenses to be met if we are to
win on Election Day in November. We muat tell the voters
of the country about Wilson, what he is, what he has done
We must thow them his record. We must show them his
platform. Wc must point out to them the feature! of his
platform which mean so much to this nation. This great
work will cost a lot of money. Wc must meet the usual
heavy toll necessary t<> present a platform and a candidate
to a hundred million. ?
Your dollar, your $.r>, your $10 your $20 is needed. And
