DEFEATED BY COLUMBIA.
n Honorable Defeat In A Well
On Wedinesday aftermiat the Col
v:,e paik the (olumbia base ball tean
f the South Atlantic league, gave a
ine exhibition of the sport in a game
)etween that team and the Newber
y college boys.
The score eleven to one in favor of
he professionals is not bad when one
onsiders that the college team is
omposed of boys who make study an
nd instead of sport. This game was
xcellent practice for the college and
he management is to be congratulat
d on securing the Columbia team for
o doubt they have gained valuable
raining which they can use in con
est against their sister colleges.
The Columbia fellows are a gen
lemenly set and Newberry would be
-lad to have them here all the time.
Manager Granville must be com
aended on the bunch he has got to
ether not only as good ball players,
ut as a quiet set of gentlemen. There
as only one occurrence in the game
hich might have been criticised and
hat was when the first baseman de
iberately kicked a ground ball that
-ould have settled on fair ground be
'ond the foul line. While this may
ave been done in a spirit of play,
t the' a'me time, the college public
an hardly understand it and no
oubt it was severely criticised.
Coach Holland has his men in ex
ellent form for the Furman game on:
aturday. There is some good -Mate
ial on the team. - In Wednesday's
ane especially was - noticeable the
laying of Cabaniss and Boozer.
'hese men are natural ball players.

THE CHANGE NOT TO BE MADE.
The Schedule on Southern Will Re
main As At Present-Change
Probably In the Fall.
It has been learned frni ( olunibia
that tie passell.ler 1reprelentatives of
flie Scutheni railnad lield' a meetilil,
ill Washington the early part of this
week to take ip the matter of arrang
ing the schedules for the summer, and
that at least for the present the pro
posed change of schedule on the Co
lumbia and Greenville division of the
Southern will not be made effective.
There was a vigorous protest from
Anderson which is really not on the
main line from the Columbia and
Greenville division, but it seems that
the business men of the city of Ander
son were afraid that the proposed
chaie would result in such a change
of schedule on. the Blue Ridge as to
inconvenience the people from Seneca
and other points between that place
and Anderson from coming to Ander
son and returning the same day, as
they are permitted to do under the
The prevailing reason probably
why the schedule will not be changed
is that -the people from Charleston
and other points between Charleston
and Columbia object to the change
because' it. would. prevent them from
zoing to the mountains without mak
ing a stop of several hours in Colum
bia. Probably in the early fall after
the mountain travel.- is over for the
summerthis.matter will be taken up
again; and the public can then have
the winter months- to get accustomed
to the change. There. are a number of
people in Anderson who would like to
see the change of schedule effected at
once. nd we are satisfied if it were
put in operation that everyone along
the line from Greenville, to Columbia
would soon agree that it was a much
better'arrangement and a much more
convenient schedule than the one we
Superintendent Williams told a
represeptative of The - ,Herald and
ews'on Wednesday that he expect
ed to make such an arrangement that
themtrains could be run on time. The
Southern going up yesterday, how
ver, was one hour late and has b'een
late every day for several weeks.
The railroad commissioners assured
s that if the change did not go into
operation that the rejpresentatives
from Newberry should ~be given a
earing, but it seems that the change
which they agreed upon has
een reversed, and we have heard
othing fromi the commissioners.
Probably they do not know of the
eeting in Washington of the passen
er representatives of the Southern.
This being campaign year it mayi be
hat the commissioners do not care to
ake the responsibility of any change
r of any other matter.
