The Herald and News has froi
time to time written considerably i
regard to the proposed trolley or othE
railroad connections with Salud
Court House, Edgefield and Augusti
We have suggested that our Chamb(
of Commerce take this matter up b
the appointment of a committee t
confer with similar committees, whic
have been appointed by Edgefield an
It seems that our Chamber of Con
meVee does not care to take hold c
this matter, or if it does, it prefei
to keep what it is doing all to itsell
It seems to us tihat it would be tb
part of good judgment-and woul
not be expensive-if the Chamber c
(Ommerce, whidh i* the organize
commercial representative of tb
business interest of the ;communiti
would appoint a committee who migh
confer with the committees, whic.
have already been apointed frol
Edgefield and Saluda and the othe
points that are interested.
Our only excuse for constantly re
ferring to this matter is t-he import
anee of it to this community as we se
it. It may be best not to exploit i
in the newspapers, but that is the on
ly way that we know of reaching th
people all along the line, who are in
terested in this proposed railroad. W
are absolutely certain, in our minds
that if Newberry does not take som
action by which she at least shows he
interest in securing this railroad con
nection, that the opportunity wi
soon 'pass away.
We believe that the people of Salt
da and Edgefield are deeply in earn
est., and that something ig going t
come of this movement. We believ(
also, as we have heretofore statec
that the majority of the people a
least between here and Saluda-an
we believe that it could be extende
to Edgefield--prefer that the roa
should reach Newberry to any othe
point that has been mentioned. * I:
however, we stand back and show ir
difference and do not do anythmns
which can even be construed into
welcome to this proposed railroac
that it will not be forced upon us an
will go to some other point. We be
lieve also that the best way to a(
complish these things is to take th
people into your confidence and tel
them just what we want to. do ani
how we want to do it and withou
-the sympathy and cooperation of al
the people along the proposed road
we do not believe that the road wil
pome to Newberry.
What we want to do is to get the
people along the proposed line in
terested and active in their efforts t<
have it built this way. They may no
be able to furnish any great amoun
of capital, but they can furnish th
rights of way, which wihi be a basis t<
operate upon, and they can furnisi
their encouragement and sympathy
which will count for a great deal.
We know that it takes money t<
build a railroad, but it also take
other things besides money. It doe
seem to us that the experience of th
past, by which we lost the Seaboar
Air Line, should be sufficiently fres]
in the minds of our people to keel
them from going to sleep on this im
portant movement, and this last op
portunity to get better railroad fa
In order that everybody may be in
formed as to what is being done ove
in Edgefield-and it does not seem t
us that they are trying to keep fro'
the public what they are doing-W
publish the resolutions in this con
neetion, which were adopted at th
meeting of the citizens .of Edgefiel
last week, and also the committee
which were appointed by Mr. Nichol
son. the chairman of the meeting.
If the Chamber of Commerce doe
not think this is a proper subject fc
its consideration, we hope that som
of the citizens of Newberry, who re~
lize the importance of securing thr
railroad, will get together and appoir
a committee to cooperate with thes
other committees. We feel, howeve:
that it would have more force and b
the proper thing for this committe
to come as the representative of th
Chamber of Commerce, which is sui
posed to be the organized official re,
resetative of the business men of tha

In response to ai vall made by The ttl
News a large number of representa- ti

house on last Friday to discuss the of

S The meeting was called to order by f
. Mr. Wm. P. Calhoun who stated its

d promptly, and endeavored to show the Si
f great importance of the undertaking. D
d When he announced that the election
e of a chairman was in order, Mr. Sim

t begged to be excused as his health was
not good and he did not feel physi- m
a cally able to undertake the duties. A
r Mr. B. E. Nicholson was then elect- R
ed chairman. On taking the chair he .
made some timely remarks on the sit

e elected secretary. '
t General M. C. Butler introduced a
set of resolutions which are given be
low as amended by Mr. A. E. Padgett
and Mr. S. T. Williams, General Butz

y spoke at length in support of his reso
lutions. So did Mr. J. C. Sheppard
r who, also, pointed out the necessity
of doing something as well as show- gr
ing the importance of the move. in
Mr. M. B. Sturkey of Plum Branch er
was present and advocated a line to AN
