That Union Depot.
The question of a union depot for
Newberry has been agitated so much
and so long, without result, that the
subject has become a little wearisome
even to the most earnest advocates of
a union station. But there was never
a better time to build the depot than
now, and we believe if the people of
Newberry will unite on one proposition
and present that proposition to the
railroads in the proper manner, the
two railroads, both of which can not
but see the urgent need for a union
station in Newberry, will accede to
the wishes of our people and build a
station in keeping with the progress a
and advancement of the city.
When the matter was taken up t
with the railroads several months ago
President Childs, of the Columbia,
Newberry and Laurens. held that the a
best place to build a union station
was at the Caldwell street crossing,
near the junction of the two roads,
and stated that if the people of New
berry would unite upon that site his C 1
road would be willing to put a suffi
cient amount of money in the build- dc
ing to insure a modern depot. Tak- t
ing everything into consideration, we
believe the site suggested by Mr. co
Childs is the best place for the sta
tion. Not only would the location be n
convenient, but amodern depot at this
point would aid very materially in ra
building up this section of the city. C(
The objection has been urged that r
the Southern railway only a short
while ago went to the expense of
erecting a modern passenger station.
The business of the Southern rail
way, however, must increase in New- da
berry, and we believe the Southern C
would be willing to use its present
passenger station for offices, using
the present freight depot for a ware
What we need is for our people to
get together in urging upon the rail
roads the need for a union depot in
Newberry, first uniting upon a site.
The inauguration of President
Roosevelt on Saturday is described be
*as the most brilliant and imposing in- s
auguration of a president in the his- mr
tory of the republic. Nearly four
years ago Mr. Roosevelt had taken
the oath of office, but he was presi- se
dent then by accident. On Satur- an:
day he became president by the..
choice of the people. 'ai:
Prohibition in Charlotte.
The number of prescriptions for in
whiskey written by t.he physicians of
Charlotte since prohibition' has been u r
- in effect in that city and the amount
of wvhiskey which is said to have
been shipped into Charlotte from3.
other towns during that time, ought
to give the prohibitionists cause for er
serious reflection. Prohibition does- to
n'I prohibit and a law that can't be
enforced tends to breed contempt for of
ill law. We have long held that mor- s
als can't be legislated into men. no
Charlotte in an example. m<
The reports from the cotton grow- th<
ers' meetings held on Friday are very Jto
encouraging. If t'he farmers want to p
accomplish anything they must get
.together, and they must stick to their ho
organization. They never had a bet- go
ter chance than they have now to be- Oh
come masters of the sittion, put
ting themselves in po.ition to de- pr<
mand a fair price for their cotton.
Failure now would mean a conc1tion
worse than if the effort had n:>t been
As to Reduction in Acreage.
Alr. R. T. C. Hunter, who was in p
Newberry yesterday, asked that the
announcement be made that he had at
cons.ulted several members of the N(
executive committee of the Newberry co:
Cotton Growers associationk and that 19,
the committee had decided that its Th
proper course was to carry out the ro
instructions of the South Carolina as- Es
sociation in the matter of the reduc- pr<
tion in acreage and in the use of fer- wil
tilizers--that is, to make a pledge to
reduced twenty-five per cent. both in
acreage and in fertilizers necessary

declined to grant a franchise for
