Wednesday to confer with the
board of trade and city council in
regard to the union depot which
Newberry has requested and ior
which the hoard of trade. council
and citizens have been working.
President Chitds made a proiosi
tion that he would raise his track
aid move it about ten feet nn!rer
the Southern track. on the edg-c of
the roadway't etween the twt -ncks
and erect a neat umbrella shed and
platform across irom the Southern

should be determiined upv)on he could
make arrannigaents with the South
ern railhar ofhcials for the use or
their depot and that he would then
place his ticket zagent in the South
Sern depot. the whole thing practical
ly amounting to a union depot. If
this were done, Mr. Childs pro
posed that he would straighten his
track and trestle going out of
-Newberry above the depot.
The matter was fully and freely
discussed by President Childs.
Commissioner Garris, President 0.

Mr. W. G. Childs. president of
the Columbia, Newberry and Laur
ens railroad. has settled with Mr.
W. H. tddy, Sr.. of Jalapa. for the
loss of his store house and stock
of goods last week by fire. There
was good reason to believe that the
fire wnas caused by a spark from a
passing locomotive on the C.. N.

Columbia and stated his case to Mr.
iChilds. Mr. Childs, for the road.
paid him $370 for his stock of goods
2and. guaranteed to erect a store
house for him. This practically
covers the wvhole estimatedl loss.
Traffic on the Columbia. New

burning of a small trestle four miles

fire just after~ the mrning train

THE BASEBALL SEASON.
It Will be Opened in Newberry This After
noon With a Game Between New
berry and Clinton'
The baseball season in Newber
ry will be opened this afternoon
with a game on the Newberry col
lege diamond between the New
berry college team and an aggrega
tion from the Presbytertian college
at Clinton. The game promises to
be interesting. Newvberry and Clini
ton. hbowever much difference in
strength they' may have showvn
when againlst outside teams. have
always played close games against
each othler. Coach Howard Hol
land hlas been getting in some hlard
work wvithl the Newberry teanm and
thle Newberrv boys will gointo the
gamle prep)aredl and in goodl spirit.
The lineC-noi of the two teams wal
probab)ly be aS follows;
Crouch p .\assey
Simpson , e Carson
Harms ib McCullough
H-olloway 21h Fewell
Owen ~ ss Powers
Tavlor 3b Means
Ohnev rf Copeland
Riser cf Key
Colemlan lf Young
This line-up may be materially
changed before the game is called.
The idea of a real union depot on
Cadwell street where the two
roads are side by side. strikes us
as a good one. That would remove
the passenger station awvay from
the freight depot and wvhere the
freight cars are shifting. The
trouble in the way of that proposi
tion is the nice depot which the
Suthern has recently built. And;
ua view of that wve will have to let
the depots remain at least for the
present where they are.
Notice is hereby given that I will
~iave books of registration open at
ny offBee every Monday from now un
i the 17th day of May.
