Coingratula,tipns to the new city
council for refusing to grant license
to a carnival company. That was
among your first acts, we believe; it
is certainly among your best. Lau
rens does not need any carnivals.
The earnival was here. Better if
it had not been. But it has quietly
folded its tents and departed. We
do not think the earnival helps any
We reproduce from the State news
paper an editorial explaining the at
titude of Mr. C. M. Galloway, the
private secretary of Senator Smith,
towards the labor union.
We do this with pleasure because
we feel that it is due Mr. Galloway
that the explanation should be given
wide publicity. We did not print
the criticism of Mr. Galloway's ap
pointment which appeared in some of
Mr. Galloway deserves credit for
what he has accomplished and we are
satisfied that the criticisms which
have been made of him are not well
The Herald and News is delighted
that the citizens of this community
and the property owners have declar
ed themselves by so handsome a ma
jority in favor of having for this
community the very best school fac
ilities that it is possible.
We hope now that every citizen in
the community will cooperate with
every other citizen of the community
in an effort to get the very best equip
me-nt in the way of buildings and
Then the very best equipment in the
way of teachers so that our schools
in every phase of school life may
have a reputation far and wide as
the very best that can b)e had.
We believe that the voting of the
bonds for the improvement and en
largement of our school system mea.ns
the voting of bonds for the enlarge
ment and extension of our sewerage
system, and also for the improve
ment of our strets and sidewalk.
Having taken one step in the march~
of progress, the next step is always
much easier. We sincerely believe
that the endorsement given the en
largement of our schools by the pro
perty owners of this commu.?ity
means much for the advancement of
*the community in other respects.
President Wright of the chamber of
commeree publishes a card in today's
paper in which he states in his opin
ion the prospects for securing the C.,
C. & 0. railroad through Newberry
are very, good, and he also states if
we miss this opportunity to secure a
trunk line we. are probably letting;
slip the last opportunity that will ev
er come our way..
Having this information we sire
cerely hope that every citizen of the
community will do all in his power to
*assist in getting this road for New
The dista.nce from Spartanburg to
Columbia via Newberry is very little
snore than it is to come down BroadI
r'iver and in addition to coming by a
commercial center like Newberry,
which would not be on the road if
built down the river, the cost of con
struction and of maintenance will be
a great deal less because from- Spar
tanburg to Columbia via Newberry
there will be no swamps through
which ~to build the road and on the
other hand we will have a ridge prae-~
tically all of the way.
-Every member of the chamber of
commeree should at.tend the meeting
tonight and every business man in the
community who is not a member
should become one tonight.
What we want in this community
above almost everything else especial
lv in a commercial way is a united
effort of our people, everybody pull
ing together for the advancement of
* ~ THE IDLER.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
The Idler most sincerely congrata
lates the trustees of the graded school,
the citizens committee, the "coadju
tors," the Observer, and the whole
community *on the result of t: e ele
tion on school bonds on Wednesday.
Everybody should be happy now. It
means much for Newberry-more
than the expenditure of a few paltry
dollars. Let everybody get busy now
to make this the best little city in
South Carolina. Nothing will he'
so much as a first-class wrell equipped
The vote tas not large but the na
jority was safe. Now, Mr. Trustees,
permit The Idler to make a suggestion.
When you go to work on these im
provements keep the public in yoar
confidence and print full reports or
the information of the taxpayers just
how the money is spent. Don't 6elcet
the sites for the new buildings to
please any one individual but for the
best interests of the school. Eliatin
ate all personal equations.
The Idler does not have a grcat
deal to do, you know, and has prac
tically no personal interest in the
school, except as a humble citzen
who has lived in Newberry a geod
many years and who wants to see tte
city keep in the forefront, but I was
mmused and yet pained to hear sone
f the objections raised against the
voting of the bond issue and by some
people whose taxes would have
amounted to nothing almost, and yet
with several ehildren hungering for
I-heard of one who objected to the
"high tax" and the "debt ridden"
aity increasing the burden and when
.t was figured out to him h- tax
would be in.ereased eight cents a year
and he has two or three children in
But let everybody no - cooperate
with the board and hol1 up their
bands and iiiist on them giving us
ap-to-date buildings and firsc class
quipment on the inside.
It is time to begin the agitation for
he extension of the sewerage. Now
hlat the school is safe there will be
10o trouble in voting the fonds for
~he extension of sewerage. Every
s&pyer oughV to have the privilege
f sewerage and the septic tank ough'
o be moved.
By the way, I hear that Aldermani
3reen has got council to agree to let
im build that bridge across Scott's
reek in College street. He didn't
et the bridge up by Saturday night
ut he most did it. I told you whee

he city will have the bridge pretty
Now, Mr. -Aiderman Green, what

ege street over Harrington? I want
ou to go after that next and I am
mre you will get it, too.
You know Supervisor Feagle will
soon work his way from the Chap
ells bridge to Newberry and that
ourt house square will be fixed up
ad the Bermuda grass will be plant
d and the crossings around there
ust be in keeping.
A eitizen of the city has sent The
dler an admonition to a -certain class
vho inhabit every community. I
on't know whether he is striking at
'he Idler or not a.nd if he is I don't
are for I am going on saying what
:>eeurs .to me about this town and it
is up to the editor whether he wijl
print it or not. I am not going t o
reflet to any one or be personal but I
am1 going to suggest and comme.id
and if they want to call me a knocker,
alrighit. .You will find me a.lways on
the side of progress. But here is the
"Knocker: If more of these --
would attend to their own busines
we would laave a better town and if
they haven't any business, go to
work for somebody who can give them
something to do.''
Now, all The Idler has got to say
to this fellow is that he should know,
if he doesn't, that it is a pretty good
job to attend to the other feiio':
business. And besides, the knokeer
has his good qualities and serves a
purpose. Things would got rusty if
he were to go out of busine3s.
A gentleman told me the other day
that there was a. small farmer down

there would have beea no occasion for
our solons to have n.le thie b'g

have made their money selling rations

But serionsly wouida't Ihi; be a

But then I reckon ever- thin is righ-t

bove named were on deposit in the

at present is $65.88.
Col. Schumpert has the list of the
