He was reluctant to say anythimgal
though he felt that injustice was don
him and said he would not say more
at this time than this:
"After the decision of the Marlbor<

THE CITY ELECTION.
te Pot Is Simmering, and, We Presume, A
will Soon Boll.
The municipal election is coming on
ace. The date is about two months off s
t. Still there are a number of prospec- d
e candidates, and candidates that are E
t prospective, for the position of mayor. t
any of theni are still in the hands of I
ir friends-a very dangerous position, a
litically, to be in. We heard of a gen- 3
man once in this county who was urged a
his friends to run for the Legislature,
d finally consented, reluctantly, of 11
urse, who afterwards told it on himself o
at he paid a certain friend $5 to get "his a
ends" to urge him to become a candi- a
te. Well, we say to be in the hands of p
e's friends, politically, is a very dan- b
rous position. t
But the election is coming on, and we
st have "city fathers." We presume s
ere will be found men enough who are g
1ling to make the sacrifice and serve
e town for another year. p
It seems to be understood that the pres
t officers are not going to permit their
riends" to re-elect them, or permit
em to enter the race. 4
The election of a town council is an im- g
tant one to Newberry. It means much e
our town. We want good and true t
mn. More, we want live, energetic, pro- r
essive men. There is a great deal to be a
ne, or, rather, that ought to be done, to f
ke our town a model town.
But The Herald and News is for "meas- a
es" now, not men. We want to know <
e platform upon which the candidates f
d, when they ask our suffrage. So, t
me along, gentlemen, and let us have c
ur views on public questions. t
The Herald and News has a platform,
d it is with some degree of trepidation
d fear that we present it, but we want
know who stands on it, so that we may e
Low how to vote intelligently ; and we t
d best make it known in advance, so f
at the prospective candidates can study a
and digest it. So here goes:
We have a fine opera-house building i
at cost us some $25,ooo, and a magnifi- 1
nt graded school at an outlay of $15,oc>.
iese things are all right; but, then, we C
mnt to go to these places sometimes, even
ien it rains a little, and as we are not r
pplied with "mud-boats," it is of para
:unt importance that we have good c
-eets and sidewalks. And then, if we s
d these, possibly we would not have so
ny people who remain away from
urch because the streets are muddy.
Then, our first plank is improvements
streets and sidewalks, even if some pri
te property be benefited thereby.
Then, sometimes the moon does not
ine, and on some moonlight nights it is
ry dark. It is absolutely necessary for
ople to be out at night occasionally.
ople have to go after doctors, and doc
rs have to visit their patients, and so on.
we "prefer light to darkness," we want
tter street lighting.
Our next plank, then, is electric lights,
some system that will give us good
,ht for our streets. t
The health of our town is of paramount
portance. Cleanliness co'nduces to
alth. Water is essential to cleanliness.
good system of waterworks is a thing of
eat importar ce to us. So this makes
r third plank.
Now, Mr. Candidate, do you think you
n get on that platform ?
It is a very simple matter. To adopt t

THE SENTIMENT OF THE comurI.
* Expressed by a Half Dozen Farmers In
Some time ago the Greenville News
nt out a lot of questions to farmers in
ifferent portions of each county in the
tate, in order to secure the sentiment of
ie S.ate on the question of :overnor
'ilman's re-election. We give below the
nswers as published that were s;ent from
ewberrv. 'Thev are a fair sample of the
nswers rece:ived from other cou:ities.
Tiere is no doubt that there is great
ikewarmness on the part of mF.ny of the
*ie time supporters of the Govarnor, but
s one of the answers states, ma:1y hate to
cknowledge it. If we could get a direct
rimary so that every man could express
is preference without it being known,
ie vote would surprise some people.
We do not know from whom these an
,ers come except where the name is .

lieve fertilizers to a certain extent will
fully repay the farmers, but they should
try as near as possible to make their

first point for the farmer to consider.
It is an important one.
We hear of no valen tines being passed

The Atlanta Constitution seems to
