ALFRED E. WHITMORE. EDITOR.

■.CM Second Class Mall Matter.
Friday, May 17, tqo'j
Elsewhere in this issue will be
found an article by Mr. R. H.
Salsbury in reply to the editorial
and the news item published last
week* We do not care to enter
into a lengthy argument with Mr.
Salsbury upon this question, but
wish to throw further light upon
the matter, which we refrained
from doing last week.
Mr. Salsbury had lieen led to
pledge himself in favor of Green
ville before corning to the last
meeting of the commissioners, and
from his actions at that meeting
was trying to get the other two
commissioners to side with him,
thus giving a unanimous vote in
favor of the location of his choice,
but when the other commissioners
opposed him and he found that lit
could not delivere the goods, lit
lost his equilihrum and allowed
himself to liecctne irritated. If he
had only pledged himself and not
the board, why did he become so
irritated and act with so little dig
nity when the opposition arose?
We do not know what Mr. Sals
bury's intentions were, therefore
we caufiol speak upon that score,
but we do know what his action.'
were, and the article in last week's
issue, (to use the words of tliost
present), "was absolutely correct".

in regard to the resolutions, en

place for the Eastern Training
School, I desire to herewith slatt
the facts, in order that the pcoph
of Martin may understand my jvo
sition. lam accused of becoming
.Very indignant at Judge Hobbs
simply because he reminded me thai
it was not a personal matter ti|>oi>
which the l>oard was voting. Tilt
facts of this matter is, the Editoi
is publishing things which lie
not understand, thereby placing
me l>efore my |>eople in a wronp
'light. 1 wish to remind the Kdilot
that this was a personal matter in
one sense, and that each commis
sioner w as voting lus own personal
ipiuion, as a member of the board,
there having been nothing done
to ascertain the sentiments ol
the people. Therefore, the Kditoi
should think and understand things
more fully before placing any citi
zen it\ a false light. I did not
think that I had a right to vote
for it as a representative of tin
people. but as an individual mem
ber of the board. As long as I re
main in oflice 1 shall never vote
iway the rights of the people, be
fore ascertaining their sentiments.
Too much uf this kind of thjng
has already been done by public
officers. Some scent to think as
Vanderliilt does "THK PKOt'l.K HK

rights should l»e carefully
guarded. I wish to state that
1 did not become' indignant at
Judge Hobbs because he reminded
me that this was not a personal
inat'er, but I did liecome indignant
when he asserted that I was trying
to run the Iward. We had dis
cussed this matter pro and con foi
some time, each giving his .views.
Judge llobbs continually insisted
that I did not look at the matter in
the right way. I contended and
still contend that Greenville is the
most central point and a more
healthful place, and that we should
take a broad view' arid try to locate
it in the interest of all the, Eastern
Counties. After the vote had been
taken, and I had instructed our
clerk to draw up a set of resolu
tions, stating just how the vote
stood, two for, and one against.
Whereupon Mr. Hobbs said I
ought to sign it, and that it was
not a personal matter, but interest
ed the people of the county. I
Said that 1 would not, sign the res
olutions, as it would make it a
unanimous vote. Then was when
lie remarked that I was trying to
run the board, and continued to
talk upen the subject, detaining
ttie from my other duties. Ins
tead of me trying to run the board,
it looked verv much like Judge
Hobbs was trying to run it. It |
was very necessary that I proceed ;
rapidly with the work in order to
clear it up that day, this I could
not do as Judge llobl>s continued
to make remarks about the matter,
which lia l been laid aside. 1
therefore asked Mr. Hobbs to stop
talking or leave the room. I re

fore I was not in a eoudition to
take an insult without resenting it.
I regret the difficulty very much,
as I have always held a great es

and did all I could to get him first
nomiuated for clerk. I have al-

To the Interested People of Mae
Since the condemnation of Mr
Salsbury in last week's issue, we
should rejoice, not because our
honorable chairman was wrongful

Just think of it, he was the onl>
one of the three who thought of
and regarded that graud article in

Three ways are used by farmers
for curing and preparing their to
bacco for the market; namely sun
cured, air cured and flue cured.
The old and cheap way air
cured; the later discovery and im
proved way is called flue cured.
In flue curing the tobacco is taken
from the fields and racked in barns
especially built to retain heat and
there subjected to a continuous high
temperature, produced by the direct
heat of flame Heated flues, which
brings out in the tobacco that
stimulating taste and aroma that
expert roasting develops in green
coffee. These similar processes give
to both tobacco and coffee the cheer
ing and stimulating quality that pop
ularizes their use.
The quality of tobacco depends
much on the curing process and the
kind of soil that produces it, as ex
pert tests prove that this flue cured

tobacco, grown in the famous
mont region, requires and takes less
sweetening than tobacco grown in
any other section of the U nited States
and b" a wholesome, stimulating,
juicy, full tobacco taste that satisfies
tobacco hunger. That's why chewers
prefer Schnapps, because Schnapps
cheers more than any other chewing
tobacco, and that's why chewers of
Schnapps pass the good thing along
—one chewer makes other chewers,
until the fact is established that
there are more chewers and more
pounds of tobacco chewed to the
population in states where Schnapps
tobacco is sold than there are in
those states where Schnapps has not
yet been offered to the trade.
