THAT UNION DEPOT.
Railroad Commissioners State That
the Railroads Have Agreed
Upon a Plan.
1 The railroad commissioners have
stated to a representative of The
Herald and News that at a confer
ence of the commissioners with Presi
dent W. G. Childs, of the Columbia,
Newberry and Laurens railroad, and
Superintendent H. A. Williams, of this
division of the Southern, a plan was
agreed upon in the matter of a union
depot for Newberry. which w- . he
carried out unless there is objection
from the people of Newberry.
The plan is for the Columbia, New
berry and Laurens road to straighten
its track to the trestle above the de
pot, placing the C., N. & L. track
along the embankment, build an um
brella shed over the C.. N. & L. track
and connect this shed with the pres
ent Southern depot by a large shed,
using the depot now used by the
Southern as a union depot.
The matter of a union depot has
been agitated for many months, and
taking everything into consideration
it seems that it would be best for the
people of Newberry to accept this
plan rather than to wait longer for

e- PLEASED LARGE AUDIENCES.
to Clever Work of the Payton Sisters in
)r. Newberry Three Nights and
.The Payton Sisters delighted three
e large audiences i" the opera house on
to Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday
t- nights of this week, and Wednesday
matinee. The company has been in
th Newberry several times before, and
its clever work during previous visits
filled the house for the opening play,
."Utah." on Monday night. Equally
'large audiences were present on the
two following evenings and on Wed
be nesday afternoon, and were equally
well pleased. It is the opinion of
many wvho were present that the clos
ing performance was most strongly
ly presented, but all the work of the
th company was clever and there is no
'9- need for comparisons..
The specialties during the acts, with
s- their bright, catchy songs, clever
dancing and muisical effects added
'c- much to the pleasure of those who at
.tended the performances.
