Supt. Anderson Says C., N. & L. to
Blame-Commission Will In
Columbia, S. C., Aug. 12.-The
railroad commission today received a
letter from Supeintendent A. W.
'Anderson of the second division of
the Coast Line regarding the com
plaint Chairman Caughman has made
against it for violating the rule of the
commission in failing to inform
about 50 passengers, who were kept
waiting here all Tuesday night last,
as to the cause of the delay in the ar
rival of the Coast Line's train from
the up country. Superintendent An
aerson blames the C., N. & L. officials
for the trouble which resulted. He
says his office was as much in the
dark as 'to the nature of the trouble
as the passengers'kept waiting in Co
lumbia for transportation to low
The commission, however, is not
satisfied with this explanation and
will have the officials of both roads
here- to shiw cause why the penalty
for violating the rule should not ap
ply. ,NOW the C., N. & L. is operated
by a separate company, but its di
rectors are Coast Line officials and it
is run by the Coast Line r6ad. The
cause of the delay %as a derailed
freight engine near Leaphardt station,
and though the passengers were nev
er informed aatoi the 4ause as the rule
requires, the C., N. & L., organiMa
'tion sent extra equipment to the seat
of the trouble, and brought its pas
sengers into Columbia.
The exact' date for the hearing has
not yet been set, but it will be held
in a few days. The outcome is anti
eipated with the keenest interest, not
only because tae Coast Line has
shown a disopsition toresist the com
mission's rules, but because in spite
of Ie fact thati this particular rule
is 6ver a year old it has been more
violated than obeyed by all of the
