A SOLE&1N PROTEsT.
Respecttully Referred to the City Council
and County Bo'.rd of Commissioners.
For the HIerald and News: I'm in
trouble. I want relief. In financial af
fairs I have found that it is either hustle
or hush. In sociological, it is what we
choos' to make it; but, in the matter of
trade, there is such a wide, even, an il
limitable sphere that may be "promoted''
that it seems to me, the exercises of the
best efforts of the full board of aldermen
is called into play.
I have reference to the indefaticable,
incontestable, incontrovertable and un
avoidable boo'k agent, whose solicitations
and importunities range with invarying
intensity from the time in which the
earliest bird sets out to hunt the biggest
fool worm to that hour when "all honest
people should be in bed"
Now, I have a proposition to offer
that I think will meet the approval of
the whole citizenship of Newberry, viz:
That a place shall be selected by the
mayor and aldermen of the city of New
berry and the county hoard of Newberry
County, setting aside an area of land
amounting to nine square feet at a
point on Broad river where the line be-i
tween Newberry and Lexington counties
touche said river on which said agents
shall solicit subscriptions for such "stu~ff"
as they may have in hand, and make
collections for same; for any violation of
which thev shall be fined not less than
one thousand dollars or he made to serve
on the county chain gang for a period of
not less than n inety days.
