TUAT UNION DEPOT.
Much Talk and Nothing Done-O.,
N, & L. Asked to Build-South
em to Take its Convenience.
The 0., N. & L. railroad is request
ed to build a passenger station on the
i north side of the railroad tracks at
the junction on 0al4we11-street. The
Southern railway is requested to
unite at this place in a union station
whenever in the judgment of the
Southern railway' it is desirable for
that road to do so.
This is.substantially the action of
the meeting which was held yester
day in the rooms of the chamber of
commerce with representatives of the
Southern railway, the railroad com
missioners and the citizens of New
berry. The attorneys of the two rail
roads present had such action taken
as they thought best for the interest
of their roa(s and the action taken
will be iii effect nothing done, and the
depot situation at Newberry will re
main practically as it has been for
st.me time. Of course this action will
now relieve Mr. Childs of the rule,
which had been issued on him by the
railroad commission. If the railroad
commission can determine from the
action of the meeting yesterday what
the people of Newberry want, they
are wise men. Instead of a union do
)ot, if the action means anything, it
means that tile two depots must be
separated andl that. we canl have a
union depot whenever in the judg
ment of the Southern raihvay its
present passenger facilities are inad
There were lpe4ent the three rail-.
road commissiole rs, Messrs. Caugh
man, K'arle and Sullivan, and Messrs.
Simpson, Bishop anld McLean, repre
senting the Southern, together with
its local attorneys, Messrs. George
Johnstone and 0. L. Schunpert; and
Mr. Horton. of the C., N. & L., and
its attorney, Mr. Cole. L. Blease.
Mayor Browi called the meeting to
order an(1 stated the objeet to be to

Mr. B. L. Cauginiman, of the coi
Iissiol, stated t1hat somle ti eic last
year. after eoisultii with the citi
zens of Newherry, it was decided that
t the (.. N. &. N. should chanigc its
I traks and that umbrella sheds should
, he built and tle preselt passenger
st ation of the Southern used as the
n union station. After this' had been
t la-ureed upon, letters were received
from the citizens of Newberry indi
eating that somethinig else would be
t better, and that the matter in conse
t quence of in this apparent division
among the people had been held .up
and that this meeting was called at
Newberry to determine just what the
Mr. John H. Earle, of the commis
sion, stated that time railroad com
mission had ordered Mir. Childs to de
St lie work agreed1 upon, and he not
laoving obeyed, the matter was turned
over to the attorney general.
Mayor Brown said that lie had gone
.to Columbia to see Mr. Childs in re
gard to the matter and some of the
e citizens wantedl a change from the
.first agreement as to umbrella sheds
- and1( Mr. Childs stated that lie would
I give one thousand dollars towards
moving the p)resenit station of the
Southern or towards the erection of
- Mr. Ulease stated1 that Mr. Childs
stand(s ready to move the dlepot of the
-Southierni aeross Pratt street, or to
3 build thle sheds or to contribute one
thousand dollars for either p)urpose.
Mr. Chiilds also. stands ready, said Mr.
B lleasie, to pay one-Ihalf of the cost of
i io stat ion to.be built at the foot
of Caldwell street.
D)r. W. E. Pelham moved that any
p)rop)ositionI look(ingi to umbrella sheds
would 1)e unsatisfactory to this coin
nmnity and1( that a nion dlepot was
MNr. George .Johinstone said that
-t his is rather aii imp)ortant meeting
and there should be the fullest (is
cussion. Hie said we could( not ex-.
p)eet or~ require the railroads to be
constantly putting upl extensive and
permanenit buildings that are not to
be permanent. HIe said it wvas only
a short time ago that we asked the
Sout horn rail way to- build a dlepot,
anid now we wanitedl them -to build
another. He thought that we should
determine where we would- piefer the
permanent depot to he and that must
be determined bly cireumstances and
environmenits. H-e felt sure that the
prmesenit location was not the proper
p)lace for the permanent location of
a union depot and argued that it
should be built at some place away
from the freight depots and suggest
ed that the way to make a beginning
looking to 'a union depot in the fu
ture was to ask the C., N. & L. to
build its passenger depot on the north
side of the trackcs in Caldwell street.
Mr. E. H. Aull stated that some
Iyears ago a committee front the board
Iof trade and the city concil had met
with the i'ailroad emmistOPOW and it
had been agreed that Mr Ohilds
should change his track as he had I
aone, and that for the present um
brella sheds should be erected and
both railroads use the present pas
senger station of the Southern. Lat
er the suggestion was made .by .some e
of the citizens that in place of um- I
brella sheds, it would lie better to y
move the building belonging to the b
Southern, to the north side of Pjatt
street, with either end extending to r
the tracks of the Southern and C., N. a
& L., which would obviate the neces- g
sity of the sheds. On account of these
suggestions, the matter has been held t
up, and as lie understood it, this e
meeting was to determine ivhich one
of these plans would be adopted. c
Mr. E. M. Evans moved thaft it was c
the sense of the meeting that a union
depot be built at the junction of the (
two roads in Caldwell street. .
Mr. Simpson, the superintendent,
of this division of the Southern, said
that his road had always tried to :
comply with the wishes of the people
and the railroad commission. That
they had tried to do everything that
they could. That the present depot
of the Southern at Newberry was
good enough for any town like New
berry, that it would cost fifteen or
twenty thousand dollars to fill up
under the trestle, which would be
necessary in case the present depot
was moved across Pratt street. That
in his judgment the present depot
was sufficiently large, and he did not .
see any necessity for any improve
Mr. L. W. Floyd said that the pro
Zress of the town inl the last fiveyears
had been very marked and that in his
judgnent, the depot. should be moved
from where it is an( a union station
buil it tsonie other place, which
would be in keepini with tile growth
and progress of the community.
Mr. A. T. Brown said that lie knew
of his own knowledge that there was
great eongestion on1 accouti of lack
of space at the present site and it
would be "impossible to put a. union
station there that would be accepta
ble and convenient to the traveling
Mr. Z. Z . Wrihlit said hie Would like
to know how we were to get a union
stitionl. Can we ask the Southern
railway to do away with its present
building, which has been there for
only a short time? He was in favor
ot a union station and admitted (hat1
there was not room enough at the
present location to build it, but he
thought we could not get one at once.
That it would be better to have a
temporary arrangement and put ip a
union- station later.
Dr. W. E. Pelham was satisfied that
the conditions were not now what
they were when this station was built
and that tile growth of the communi
ty deserves better facilities.
Mr. 0. L. Schumpert read the let
ter of the chairman of the railroad
commIliSsion calling this meeting, and
as stated in that letter, it was to
consider the dlepot situation at New
berry. He said that we had been
occupying the present depot of the
Southern for only six years. and that
we must deal fairly and justly with
the railroad, and it would not be fair
or just to require them to pull dowvn
this station and go to the expense of
building another. He did not think
it would suit anybody to hlave thle dec
pot moved to tile north side of Pratt
steet. We determined two or three
yeais ago to put iup shleds, nowv we
were talking ab)out som'ethling else.
We were al togethler too changeable.
He agreed to thle proposition that the
union dlepot should be at the foot of
Caldwell street, but hle did nlot thlink
it would be just or right to require
he Southern railway to go to that
(xpenise at this time.
Mi. A. T. Brown said that the town
hbus almost doubled itself in flyc years
uand lhe thought it but just that we
should have a union station.
Mr. George Johnstone thlen offered
thec following~ resolution:
Resolved, That the C., N. & L. rail
road be required to build an adequate
dtepot on the north side of the rail
roadh tracks at the foot of Caldwvell
Resovled further, That the South
ern railwvay be reqhuested to move its
dep)ot, the two depots making a union
station, to that place whenever it
needed further~ passenger accommo
Mr. John H. Wicker said that the
Southern railway had done every
thling that it had been asked, and it
wa~s up to Mr. Childs to do something.
HIe was opposed to the uni'on .station
at the foot. of Caldwell street.
Mr.. J. H. Earle, of the railroad
commission, said that ho wvas,glad to
hear this discussi-on of the question.
That in conformity to the request of
a committee from the citizens of New..
berry, the~tracks had been built .by
tIle C., N. & L. as ordered. That the
shedls had not been built and that
they had been unable ~.to get Mr.
