Herald and News :-Seout cars ar rived Monroe. Georgia. at m fifteen. Distance from Atlanta sixty-seven miles. Atlanta Journal. As a result of the work done in the past few days in presenting New berry 's claims to a place in the pic ture on the proposed great capital to-capital atomobile highway be tween New York and Atlanta, and thence on to Florida, the scout cars of the Atlanta Journal and the New York Herald, in locating this route, will pass through Newberry. It is probable that the cars will arrive in Newberry some time this afternoon, add it is very much hoped that the party can be induced to spend the night. here. Newberry Sends Pilots. Cars from Newberry left yester day for Greenwood to pilot the scout cars here. The Newberry pilot ears took three different routes, it having been decided to take the three most practicable routes and then to com pare notes after reaehing Greenwodd and bring the scout cars to Newberry by the best route of the three. The Proposed Highway. The plan of building a great auto mobile highway from New York to Atlanta and then:ee to Florida was inaugurated some time ago by the Atlanta Journal and the New York Herald, and it has been enthusiastic all received and encouraged by the people of all t,he sections to be trav ersed. Three routes have been urged. One of these has already been travers ed by the Journal a.nd Herald cars from New York to Atlanta coming into South Carolina from Charlotte, and passing through Gaff ney. Spar tanburg. Greenville and Anderson, and thence to Atlanta. The second. rete will be 'traversed on the return of the cars.to New York-the.capital *to-capital route. in which Newberry wants and. must have a place. The other route is known as the Bristol route along the line of the formerly celebrated route by Bristol, .Tenn., which would traverse a s'ection of ountry further west than the other two routes. Of t.he three routes, the capital route is most generally favored, and with the proper en-couragement from the people along the route, it ought to be selected. Nothing in recent years has done more to stimulate an intere&st in g'00d rTads than the spying out of this pro posed great highway from the na ols mnetropolis, through the na vncapital, on to the southern coewberry Secures Visit of Scouts. W Vh u it was learned in Newberry last week that the Journal and Her ald cars would start yesterday on their return to New Y'rk. spying out the pr)Tosed capital route, Dr. 0. B. Mayer. president of the cbamber of comerce. took up the matter,. in the effort to induce the cars to come to Newbe'y. It was urged, and .lustly. that Newberr'y was logically on the route. onsdering both distances and th conditon and quality of the roads. It was thought at that time that the scut (ars would come by Laurens, and President Mayer appointed a co'fmitte. composed of Mr. C. T. Sumer. Dri. F. D). Mower, and Mr. R.. H. Wright. to meet the party at arn. -f -t was decided to take ..ha,- ruefrom Greenwood to Colum lerald Scout y to Newberry bia. At that time Newberrv was not on the map which the Atlanta Journal had published of the proposed route. Mr. E. H. Aull, editor of The Her ald and News, had been in Atlanta a. few days before, and while there he had a talk with Mr. James R. Gray, editor and manager of the Atlanta Journal, and in the course of the conversation it was suggested that the route be located via Newberry. On Saturday Mr. Aull got in com munication by telephone with Mr. John S. Cohen, managing editor of the Atlanta Journal, who is in charge of the Journal's scouting party, again urging that the route be located by Newberty. The following correspondence by wire, which ensued on Saturday, ex plains itself: Misleading Information From Colum bia. "E. H. Aull, Newberry: We are in formed from Columbia "that the road between Abbeville and Newberry is horrible on account of the cross ings of the Saluda river and the three-mile-wide swamp at Chappells between Greenwood and Newberry." Is this information correct? If so, is there no other route so as to avoid Saluda crossing and swamp? Kind ly answer promptly. We are strong ly urged to abandon trip through your section and go via Augusta. "The Atlanta Journal, " John S. Cohen." The Facts Given. "Newberry, June 12. "John S. Cohen, Atlanta Journhl. Atlanta, Ga.: The information sent out frtom Columbia as to swamp at Chappells is misleading. We do nt and never have proposed to bring the party via this route, and do not in tend going through the swamp re ferred to. The route above has no swamp, and the route from here to Grenwood, I am told, is in good con. dition. All automobiles from Colum bia to Greenwood or the up-cointry come via Newberry. From Abbeville to Augusta is practically down the Savannah river. We have never thought of going t.hrough the wamp at Chappel.ls, but expe2t at take a route above Chappells. M--. C:hipley at Gteenwood says the roats fromi here to Greenwood is in good condi tion. He has frequently traveicl it. From here to Columbia is a cidge on water shed between the two rivers, and no streams until Broad river at Columbia. "'E. H. Aull.'' Decided, to Come by Newberry. "Atlanta, June 12, 1909. "E. H. Aull, Newberry: Your tele gram received. Replying on informa tion contained therein, we wi'l follow route suggested, Abbeville, Gren wood, Ne wberry, Columbia. "Jlohn S. C:>he.' .Prior to this corresponden~ce by wire, Mr. Aull had also written a personal letter to Mr. Grr... editor of the Journal, in rega'rd to the matter, which the Journal in its ismue 'of Sun day prints among the informatiou up on which it relied in selec~.tn the route by Newberry. What's the Matter With Columbia? It seems thiat for somec reason Co lumbia, or sonie parties ini C>umbia, wantedl the route to Columbhia by Augusta, and not by Abbevi! . Green wood and Newberry, and they~ iter estedl themselves in trying. to have it made by Augusta, not wit hst aud.ing the fact that Columbia wvould1 :.>t be affeted, being on the route, na viat 'ta wvhlh rot to Colaimbia wats chosen. lIn tihe Columbia Stat o Sunday morning it is stated that "for sonme reason Augusta is not made to tigure in the intinerarv of the present "'pathfinding" scheme but as the findings of these scouts are not to definitely determine the ultimate selection of the, roadway, it is cer tain that Augusta will be heard from in good time. In fact, the newspap ers which are blowing so hard now have never done much in the past to build roads." The Coluimbia Record of Saturday aftttenon azid that "'Columbia has cosider.ed that the best route from The Atlanta Journal of Sunday says: "Automobilists of Columbia in personal letters to friends in Atlanta Saturday urged a change in the plaas of The Journal-Herald scout cars, one writing "that the road between AL beville and Newberry is horrible on a:count of the crossings of the Salud: river and the three-mile wide swamp at Chappells. between Greenwood and Newberry. --The Journal immediate.y ',ves tigated the reports and tehjrasn from leading citizens in A 4ieville, Greenwood and Newberry show that the automobilists had in mind a dif ferent route from the one to be trav ersed by the scouts. The cars will go as originally planned via Abbe ville, Greenwood, Newberry, thence on to Columbia." It will be seen that, notwithstand ing Columbia's efforts, the scout cars are coming to Newberry. The people of Greenwood were al so in communication with Atlanta on Saturday, working with Newberry for the location of the route. Pilot Cars Go to Meet Scouts. Three parties went to Greenwood yesterday to meet the scout cars. Dr. F. D. Mower and Dr. W. E. Pelham, Jr., drove Dr. Mower's car, via 0' Neall bridge over Bush river, thence by Zion church and the long bridge over Little River to Williams' store, and from there by Vaughnville to Cross Hill and Greenwood. Mr. W. C. Moran drove Mr. Z. F. Wright's White Steamer, in which were Mr. E. H. Aull, Mr. R. Herman Wright and Supervisor Feagle, to Williams' Store along the sa-me route taken by Drs. Mower and Pelham, and from Williams' store on over the r-ailroad bridge between Chappells and Dyson, by Ninety Six and on to Green wood. Capt. W. S. Langford's Ford run ,'>out. with Mr. W. C. Waldrop at the wheel and Mr. Langford on board. took the Belfast road over the 0' Neall bridge and by Longshore's store to Cross Hill, and then on to Greenwood. Dr. Mower's ear and Capt. Lang ford's car will meet at Cross Hill aid proceed to Greenwood together. The Trip to Newberry. At Greenwood the three cars will I compare notes of the routes travers ed, and decided on the best route to Newberry. If the Cross Hill route is selected, as seems probable. the cross ing of-Saluda river will probably be made at Smit'h's bridge,.and the prob able road from Cross Hill to New b?rry will be by Belfast and on by I:ongshore 's to Newberry. I:n any event, the cars will come into Newberry across the 0O'Neall bridge over the Bush river. The m~ute into the city will then be by I the place of the late Mr. T. M. Neel, thence up O'Neall street to Drayton street, thence through Drayton street to Boundary street, - thenee. . down Boundary to Caldwell street, and al ong Cald.weil street to the Newberry hotel. Reception Here. The party will be tendered a recep tion on their arrival in Newberry, and will be urged to spend the night here. The full program of the entertaini ment to be accorded them during their stop in Newberry has..not yet been completed. .The Probable Itinerary. The cars left Atlanta Journal of-h Be yesterday morning at 8 o'clock for their long trip to Herald Square. at Broadway and 34th street. New York. Their progress, of course. will he determined largely by the char aeter of the roads and the condi tion of the weather, but when the start was made the& tenative itinerary urovided for reaching Elberton last ight. The points in Georgia whieh itwa lanned toreach yesterday were: Decatur. Stone Mountgin, Lithonia. Conyers. Covington. Soeial Circle. Monroe. Athens. Elberton. The Atlanta Journal of Sunday said in regard to the second day's trip (Tues day): ''The scouts have less posi tive information eoneerning the see ond day's run, because less is known South Carolina road that are to -be traversed. It is probable, however. that the itinerary for Tuesday will take t'he scouts and their escorts through Abbeville. Green.wood. and Newberr.'' Personnel of the Party. *The .Tonrnal car is a bio- Oldsmo bile, and the Herald car is a White Steamer. Of the personnel of the par ty the Atlanta Journal of Sunday iavs: "Henry J. Lamar, of Macon, own !r of The Journal Oldsmobile, will go hrough to New York with the car. KLr. Lamar has few equals when it -omes to driving an automobile. He ias an iitimate knowledge of country oads, generally speaking, and he can nanage his sturdy "Olds"' in any !mergency. ''Major John S. Cohen, managing ditor of The Journal, who came S brough from New York on the first ' ;couting trip, will return and direct Che Journal's scouts. He will Is a! )assenger in the big Oldsmobile. Dr., 3.

'Lathan Lazarnick, the recognized A 1hampion out-door photographer of A.merica, who made so many friends )y the geniality of his nature on the )rginal trip down from New York,' will form another of the Herald's 1scort.

One is the testimony offered by C vinding up commission in Attorney G The other is the affidavit offered is attorney. Here are the two side by-side: Mr. Dudley's Testimony (1907.) "Mr. Lyon took up the matter of he checks. He exhibited one for $750, vhich the witness (Dadley) identified. 1his was the che;ck drawn by Mr. )udley on the Palmetto National 3ank. The check was dated Decem er 16. "Q. What did you do with that noney? A. I didn't intend to ac ount for the disposition of that $750 n-telling you about my expense. That 750 did not come near paying my xpenses on that one trip during the tolidays. "Q. You stated that this money vas used by you to pay your expenses o Lexington, Peoria and Chicago, and or other purposes I A. I wish to cor ect t'hat statement. This didn't ome near paying my expenses on that rip. "Q. You stated, I believe, that rou left Columbia between December .5 and December 201 A. I find now hat I left about the morning of De ember 23. "Another check for $400 was ek bited. He said he did not draw.this ut for any special purpose 'just to >ut it in my pocket.' He said he had ;1,500 in his pocket at that time, and hat this was nat included in any f the money which he had drawn ut from the Palmetto ,National ank. "On the 20th of December,'' said vr. Dudley, "I had $2,600 -in my >oket. On the 21st or 22nd, I had 3,100 in my pocket. '' "Q. Where did you get this ad itional amount (Reply stricken out.) "I didn't. get any of this other oney from Clarke Bros & Go,'' said dr. Dudley, my deposits here were ~rom Clarke Bros. & Co., and Leh aan and represented my commissions or the month of December.''

What disposition was5 made f that money? A. It was not for ny special purpose. I just didn't rant my balance~ at the bank to be oo large." The conclusion of Mr. Dudley's tes imony was ended in the reports as ollows: "Mr. Dudley said he had ever used a cent of money for the urpose of advancing his interests ;ith the board of directors of the nae dispnsaryv the Checks. timony in 1907 and His in 1909. ory to be gleaned from last week's )mmission.

"State of Kentucky, County of Fayette. The affiant, C. W.

He states that during parts of said time, J. B. Wilie was. a member of the board of directors of the State dispensary. "Affiant states that ' about the month of October, 1906, through the efforts, and by arangements with the said Wilie, he procured an order from said State dispensary for a quanity of liquor to be sold and funrished by the Live Oak Distilling cempany, of Cincinnati, Ohio. "Affiant states that he paid to the said Wilie the sum of $1,060 as a com mission for procuring the purchase of said liquors, that amount being de manded by said Wilie, who was, at said time, a member of the board of directors of the State dispensary.
