MR. J. J. FRETWELL TALKS OF THE
ROAD AND IT'S PROSPECTS.
VENT OVERII PitOOSED ROUTE IN
AUTOMOBILE
oVenl loaxot vith the Outlook For it
The Anderscn Daily Mail of the
10th instant sals that Messrs. .1.
J. Fretwell, L. I.; Wai.tson, and C.
G. Sayre, who rod,i over the pro
posed r-)uto of tlie A idersoni &
Easley Railway y'st.rday in Mr.
FI'retwell's automob+,l,il=A, returned to
the city lato that afternoon, having
come hack by way of GreenvilIe.
When asked about the propo)s8d
road this nori.ing, Mr. Fretwell
said in part:
It is understood that the coun,
j try btween A udIerson and Eatsley
is a most prosperois one, and that
the I)lant.ors along the route are
anxious to have a railroad between
those two points.
Mr. Watson, who was in tho par
ty, has received a proposition from
a Northern concern, to the effect
that if the farmers along the pro
posed route would raise one-fifth
of the amount that was necessary
to construct the road, this concern
would subscribe the remaining
four-fifths. Mr. Wotson's planta.
tion is directly on the proposed
route and if the road is construct
_ .ed, not only his, but other proper
ty will be greatly enhanced in
value.
Guessing offhanded, it is thought
that $125,000 to $150,000 will be
-necessary to build the road. The
distauce is 26 miles and the route
-of the road passes through a coun
'try where there will have to be no
trestles constructed. This item
alone makes the cost of construc.
tion much cheaper.
As stated above, the engineer
will commence a survey of the
route 0-commencing next Monday.
After "the survey is completed, an
estimate of the cost of the con
-struction will be submitted to the
Northern concern, and if the esti.
'mate does not call for more than
.$150,000, the gentlemen of Ander.
>son county who are interested in
-the movement will commence a
-canvass for subscriptions to raise
the '20 per cent that will be requir
ed of them.

NEW LOCAL TRAIN ON SOUTHERN.
FILLA A HI WANT.

Tha t Local 'raln Was a Neeessity.
The Soutern Railway has given
notico that a new local passenger
train, to be run bet ween 'l'occoa,
Ga., and Charlotte, N. C., will be
put on Monday, Nevembher 260.
Re(Cently a e(,1smnn1tthee froll the

cer and other oflicials of the Souti
ern, and one requ-st, among t,th
(ars, the comlliitte. made, was that
a local train )0 l. ult, on het w(eetn
Toccoa and Charlotto.
\1r. Spe'ncer admnittrd that Sutch
a train voild t,ot only he a go)'d
investment for the road but it
would he an accomlodation to the
pullhic at largo. 1 assured the
genltl(,meGn of the committee that
he would put the train on as soon
as ho could arrange for its equip.
ment, and now the annonllcemllent
is made that everything is in read.
iness for the train to begin running
on a regular schedule, Monday,
November 26, and will be operated
daily except Sunday.
The ainnouncAmnent states that
this train shall leave Toccoa at 6
a. m., and arrive at Charlotte at
12:85 p. m. On its return, it will
leave Charlotte at 3:25 p. m , and
arrive at Toccoa at 9:45 p. In.
The train will be made up of one
first class coach, one divided coach
and a baggage and express car.
The new train will relieve the
fast trains of much! local travel
and will enable those trains,
thereby to make better schedule
time. It is possible that this
additional train may cause the
present schedule to be changed a
slight bit so es to arrange for the
meetings of the trains.
It has never been been a ques
tion with the railroad oficials as to
whether or not a local train oi this
kind would pay, They know it is
going to pay. In fact it is proba
ble that this train will become
popular for local travel and addi
tional cars will have to be put on.
When this new train is put on
the schedule on the Picke.ns road
will be changed, and it is now
figured out that this schedule will
be somewhat as follows: L,eave
Pickens at about 7 :30, a . m ; and
r'Aturnui ng leave Easley about 11:40
a. im'; leave Pickonis a bout, 1:80, p.
ml.: leave Eatsleyv at 51 .m,o

ont a hitherto poor, clay farm he is
able to produce large crops of corn.
James J. Hill says that thu popu

that the United States eventually
will hhv-a to turn to agriculture in

merce, in order to give the next P

lieves that when the farmer takesi
ai much care of by products and s
prevents waste as carefully as does b
the manufacturer there will be a
profitable employment for many
more persons upon the farms. r
