NEW ROSTOFFICE BUILDING.
Mr. Patrick E. Scott Secures Con
tract From Government-Wort,&
to Begin at Gnce.
Some tim<: ago the postoffice de
partment at W;as-hington obtained bids
from .several property owners in the
-city for the lease of an office for ten i
year.s with the understanding 'That the 1
building was to be -fixed up under .the
direbtion. of the department or its
agents, and in such .style and conven
ience as will be in keeping with the
progress and growth of the city. Sev
eral persons made bids land es.timates.
Among these was Mr. Patrick E.
Scott who proposed to erect a new
buildipg on the corner of Caldwell
and Friend streets where the shoe
shop of Mr. Blats now stands. The
following letter from the first assist
ant -post master general explains i,tse.f:
Washington. November 20, 1905.
Inclosed please find a communicAtion
addressed to Mr.. Patrick E. Scott, ac
cepting his proposal to lease new
quarters for the Newberry postoffice.
The- letter should be delivered im
mediately. Please notify interested
parties of the action taken by the de
partment. In the absence of further
instructions you are authorized to I
move the postoffice to i-ts new 'quar
ters as soon as they are ready for
occupancy. The premises will be fit

George L. Wood, an assistant super
intendent of this office.

will poba0'y fit up one of the stories
for a.*hall -to be used for.amusements I
and, such like. wih the other stoi-y fo'r

A building of this character is very
mucQi rfeeded -in the city, and it, is
hoped while Mr. Scott is ibilding,
that he will carry out his present -pur- i
pose- as stated above.
The post office will have new fix

also a private -room for :the postmas

Mr. Hipp~ has a fine plantation, and
is making good money out of ha

the place he 'showed me an old bleack

showed me an old corn crib 'built by
his grandfather, John Hipp, seventy

boards that were used for covering are
still on the old biulding, and sompe of
them are pretty good yet.
