berry, S. C., as 2nd class matter.

We understand that the develop
ment of the Parr Shoals company
power is now an assured fact, and
within the next ninety days work will
be commenced on the darn. About
five hundred hands will bi, put to
work on either side of the river, and
the construction will be pushed as
rapidly' as it is possible.
There is no doubt that the power of
the future is to be electricity and we
trust that the two mills at Newberrv
will contract with this company for
power, so that we may be assured of
it being brought to Newberry. Once
enough horse power is assured for the
transmission of it to this city, there
will be a number of small industries
which will utilize it, and in this way,
be able to secure their power much
cheaper -than they are doing. This
company should certainly furnish.
power much cheaper than it could be
generated by steam, and in fact, once
it is brought here, it could be used
for street lights as well. We under
stand it is to be taken to Columbia,
and that there are other points desir
ing to obtain it, and Newberry should'
get in before it is all sold.
BETTER MAIL FACILITIES.
Some time ago Congressman A.
Frank Lever started a movement to
secure mail service on the through
freight on the Columbia, Newberry
and Laurens road. Congressman
Lever is still working in the interest
of this matter. Now Congressman
Aiken is working for an improvement
in the schedule on the Columbia and
Greenville division of the Southern.
The Washington correspondent of
the News and Courier says:
"Mr. Aiken is working with Pres
ident Spe9ier, of the Southern 'rail
road, for an improvement in the
schedule on the Columbia and Green
ville division, in order to insure con-.
neetions at Greenville and Seneca on
the main line with trains for Wash
ington and Atlanta. For nearly two
' years past Northern mail from Co
lumbia and Greenville is delay ed
twelve hours in transit by reason of
missing connections at Greenv ille.
Mr. Spencer has promised to have the1
Nothing is more important to a
community than good mail facilities.
If Congressman Lever should be
successful in his effort to have mail
service put on the Columbia, Newber-,
ry and Laurens freight, it is thought t
that probably President Childs, of t
this road could make this train a reg
THAT UNION DEPOT. h
Some time ago the Columbia, N~ew-~
berry and Laurens road began build
ing a track to the passenger depot
now used by the Southern, the pur
pose being to erect a shed and maike
it a union depot. It was proposed to4
run the C. N. & L. track on the side of
the depot next the city, placing the
depot between the two tracks. Work -
was suspended on account of bad
weather. The weather has been good
for some time now, but the work has
not been recommenced.
Newberry has for a long time
waited patiently for better passenger
depot accommodations. Certainly we
need them, and it is hoped that the C.
N. & L. road will finish the track on
which it has begun work, and give
us a union depot.
The dispensary it appears is not theA
only thing that dispenses booze in
pretty good quantity. The express
company's local office is proving a
fair substitute, if estimates of itsG
business are to be taken as an indi-.
cation. Handling seventy-five gallons:
per day, it will be seen, five hundred
and twenty-five gallons will be dis
seminated in a week and two hundred
and fifty gallons will be required to
meet the demands of thirst for thirty

put at the very low figure of $3.00, -
we see Spartanburg 's imbibing ele
ment is - paying to out-of-town whis-C
key dealers about $6,750.00, not 1
counting express charges every month
or $81,000.00 a year. This is a low
estimate because it takes the business 4
done at the express office at compaira
tively quiet time in the booze busi
ness. The Christmas or holiday rush
would cause an increase in the ship
ments and a jump in the grand to
tals. And then it must be understood
that the express company 's whiskey

This is about the situation where
ever prohibition has been tried. It is
a little strange but it see'ms to be a
fact that a "dry town" or a prohi
bition town immediately gives to its
inhabitants and visitors as well a
very keen thirst. Tt may be that the
Sparianburg thirst requires more to
quench it than is required by some
other communities. In fact, we are
inclined to think it is rather more
acute than the Newberry thirst if we
are to judge by the remarks of the

Senator J. Q. Marshall has enter
ed the race for mayor of Columbia,
and while at one time it appeared
Major Gil)es would have no opposi
tion and it was difficult to get any
one to offer for alderman the situation
is now growing interesting. Mr.
Marshall is a hard fighter and will
make the race interesting.

from citizens of the town of the reck

its by boys who are possessors of ri
fles and shot guns. Not so munch the
shooting of the robins but the fact
that they seem to be utterly regard
less of what other object may be in a
line with the robin and some of the
shot hit other objects than the bird.
Newberry should keep an eye on
that railroad from Spartanburg to
Aiken and see to it that the line
comes by this city.
