BARBECUE AT CUT-OFF.
e Railroad is Being Severely Condemn
ed Because it Would Not Stop
To Let Passengers Off.
t A large crowd from Newberry and
as far u) the road a.-4 Abbeville. in
(- udinig Dyson. Ninety Six, and
Greenwood. ad11(1 fnoul Salluda and
[. Laureiis counties, as well as from the
y community, attended the barbecue at
, the cut-off on last Friday. There
f must have been seven or eight hun
:- dred people present. Many were dis
appointed. however, in that the rail
0 road people did not get ready to let
the water out of the ponid until 12
t- o'clhk. and therefore. it was not
d dirained duriig the day. and those
who went to enjoy the fish could not
d do so. There was another disappoint
r. ment. also. for those who went from a
I- dstanee by the railroad. They ex
s pected that the train would stop at
the cut-off and let the passengers off
as well as take them on in the after
noon. For some reason the officials
o issued positive orders that no train
t would stop at the cut-off, though the
trains coming down had from one
- hundred to one hundred and fifty
passengers, and the trains going up
e an equal number. Those coming down
t had to get off at Chappells and those
n going-up at Old Town. They were
I then about three miles from the cut
off. and many of them had to walk.
a Others were able to secure wagons
and buggies and in that way went to
the cut-off. In the party were many
s ladies, some of whom, it is stated,
I Just why the railroad issued or
ders not to stop is ,not known
though we have heard several rea
- sons given; among them. that this
1 pond belonged to the railroads and
the officials did not like it because
t those who got up the barbecue under
. took to form a- stock company for,
a the distribution of the fish; another
reason stated by a railroad man is,
- that the railroad people knew the
pond could not be drained on Friday
e and that those who went expecting to
get fish would be disappointed and
the railroad did not care to be a par
ty to that disappointment. What
ever the reason, there 'were a great
I many angry people and they were
very severe in their criticism of the'
Srailroads and many were heard to say
that if they ever got on a jury they
Swould certainly stick it to the rail
roads for damages.
It does seem that it would have
been very-.little trouble for the trains
to s-top and let the people off, es
4 pecially having as large number who
n desired to stop there from both di
rections as they had.
I No good can come to the railroads
from such treatment of the traveling
public. It is understood that herto
' fore that when as many as a half
1dozen people had desired to go there
gto the cut-off for the purpose of fish
ing, the trains have stopped to let
Sthem off. and also to take them on,
and even if the pond did belong to
r the railroads, this is no proper treat
n ment of the public, who had no inter
est. Certainly it has caused very
d zreat criticism of the road and has
r not helped to make the people feel
d more kindly towards it.

FOURTH IN WEST END.
The Nation's Birthday Celebrated M
With Athletic Sports and Other
With two ba-e ball amnies an(d other
athle"ic sports. an1d with inspiring i
music. by the West Eid concert band. n
the b"irth (lay of the latioll wa, ap- ini
propriately celebrated in West End 6'
Mn July 4. At noon an excellent bar- 2(
becue diiner was serred by Messrs. ni
Hiller and Sheely. There were large N
erowds to wittness the diamond con- mn
tests and the other sports, and the w
day was successful from every point m
;f view. The lar-e crowd was in P.
good humor, and out for a holiday. w
and there were no unpleasant inci- F
dents to mar the occasion.
The programme was carried out as bi
it had been previously announced in ii
the newspapers. In the early morn- C
ing there was a concert by the West j
End concert band. This band has p
been doing some hard work and is an
excellent musical organizatioin. Only to
recently the band purchased new uni- c
forms, which arrived during the last m
of June. and in their new uniforms ml
the band made an excellent appear- ;e
ance for the celebration, in addition gi
to furnishing good music. m
Following the band concert, came te
the athletic sports. In some of the m
races, record time was made. The is
judges were Messrs. D. B. Chandler, vi
C. M. West and Frank Wilson, the w
starter being Mr. John H. Wicker. o
Newberry took both base ball ea
Lqames from Clinton, one in the morn- ri
jig. and one in the afternoon. The
games were not as interesting as they g
would have been, had the visitors bE
been able to play better ball. They at
were so clearly outelassed by the lo- a
cals. and the result was so evident to
from the start in both games. that at. so
times interest lagged. But the home N
team won both times, and any crowd ea
of diamond enthusiasts is satisfied
when the home team wins. It is never
the fault of the locals that the visit
ors can't put up a better game. R.
The first race in the morning, fol- f0
lowing the band concert,-was the one er
hundred yard dash, open to boys un
der sixteen years of age. James Perry
was winner, with -Prton Franklin
second. The winner was awarded a
prize of one dollar, the second prize m
being fifty cents.
The hurdle race for boys under eigh-. b4
teen years of age was also won by
James Perry, with Barton Franklin
second. The prizes were the same as
in the preceding race. S
The one hundred yard dash, open it
to the world, was won by Mr. M. F. 01
Hardeman, with Mr. Lewis Jones see- tli
ond. The first prize was two dollars, tI
and the second prize one dollar. There i
were a number of entries in this race, tc
and there was some good running, and ~
good time was made by the winner. r
At 10 o'clock the first ball game ti
was played, in which Clinton was de- t
feated by Newberry by a score of 12 ei
to 0. -Simpson and Sheely composed G
the battery for Newberry.
Following the base ball game, the gi
barbeue dinner was served. It was a r
good dinner, and it. was enjoyed by -a N
large crowd. ce
The first race in the afternoon was o
a sack race, the entries being boys o:
under eighteen years of age. The first ci
prize, one dollar, was won by Ernest s(
Knight, and the second prize, fifty P
ents, by Willie Thorntonl.
In the egg race, open to the world,
the first prize of one dollar was won
by Murray Rikard, and the second
prize, fifty cents, by Baeil Dickert.
In the three-legged race, the prize
of one dollar was won by Sam Lake
nd 'Chesley Abrams..
James Perry took first prize. one
dollar, in the potato race, end Sam G
Lake second prize, fifty cents. a
In the second game of ball, played ~
in the afternoon, Clinton was againm
defeated by Newberry, the score be- t
ing 9 to 1. Messrs. Morris and Sheely bi
were the bittery for Newberry in this
game. As in the morning game, the n
Clinton team was outclassed, and theW
result was evident from the start. e
This, however, did not dampen the ar
do' of the fans, and there was as
much cheering when a good play was.

A Prominent South Carolinian.
Cob. George Johnstone, of Newber
r. was in Laurens last week on im

inent South Carolinian leaves home it
is most generally on important busi

friends of Col. oJhnistone, and they
are always glad to greet him, again
and again. Here in Laurens where so
many know him to esteem, him we en
joy being in his. company. That pleas
ure was once more ours on. last Friday
night, in the lobby of Gray's Hotel,
where the Colonel was resting pre
paratoryr to his legal work of the
morrow. During the interesting con
versation, which was mainly be
tween Colonel Johnstone and one of
the best informed citizens of this
town, many historical facts and inci
dents in the lives of great men were
rehearsed to our edification. As is
generally known, Col. Johnstone is a
man of toweri.ng intellectuality and
magneitc personality. His masterly
speeches have been made wit,hout
