THE TROLLEY LINE.
President Wright Appoints Commit
tee To Confer With The Edge
President Z. F. Wright, of the
chamber .of commerce, realizes the
importance to Newberry of securing
the proposed trolley line from Edge
field, and he said yesterday, in an in
terview with a representative of The
Herald and News, that the chamber
of commerce would take up the mat
ter and do all in its power to bring
the line to Newberry.
President Wright said that he was
heartily in favor of a road which
would open up the country which
would be traversed by the proposed
trolley line, and lie felt that at this
time. speaking from a commercial
standpoint. nothing would be of more
advantage to Newberry than a line
connecting Newberry with Edgefield
and Augusta. He had gathered from
the articles by the staff correspond
ent of The Herald and News, he said,
that it was proposed to build the line
from North Augusta to Edgefield, and
then on to some point which would
give the necessary aid in building the
road. At North Augusta the proposed
line would connect with the trolley
line from Aiken to Augusta, givi.1g
connection with Augusta and Aiken,
and the towns between, including
Graniteville, Bath, Langley and War
renville. President Wright said that,
Newberry was now getting a great
deal of trade from Saluda and points
between here and Saluda, which
would be increased if there were
means of rapid transportation. And
he realized, he said, that if a line
were built, and it should go to Green
wood, or some other point, that most
of this trade would be cut off.
The transportation committee of the
chamber of commerce is composed of
Mr. George W. Summer, chairman,
Messrs. Edw. R. Hipp, George B.
Cromer and A. C. Jones. President
Wright has appointed the following
gentlemen to work with this commit
tee, making them and the transporta
tion committee' a special committee
to take up the matter of the propos
ed trolley line, and to confer with
the Edgefield committees:
E. H. Aull, J. D. Davenport, C. J.
It is probable that some member of
this committee will be appointed to go
to Edgefield and to talk over the mat
ter with the Edgefield people, and to
see exactily what the situation is.
Prosident Wright was shown the
article in this issue of The Herald and
News, calling attention to an editor
ial in the Edgefield Chronicle favoring
the line to Newberry, and was grati
ified that Newberry should be favored.
He says that the matter will be- taken
up by the special committee of the
ehamber of coommerce, and. that if it
is possible to bring the line to New
berry; whatev'er aid the chamber of
commerce can give, will be given.
It is a matter, he said, of. great im
portance to Newberry, ant one which
would be thoroughly looked into at
the earliest possible moment, so that
there might be- no misunderstanding
as to Newberry 's attitude, because
Newberry, he said, wanted the road,
and he felt confident that Newberry
would do alil in its power to help
build the road.
Saluda, he said, is on a direct line
between Newberry a.nd Edgefield, and
it is about twenty-five miles from
Edgefield to Augusta.. Once the line
is brought here from Ek gefield it
could be extended on to Whitmire,
crossing the main line of the Sea
board, and then to Union, connect
ing with the main line of the South
ern. The line, Mr. Wright said,
would go through a section of country
now without railroad facilities, but a
section of country which was able to
help build a road, and whose people~
were eager to lend their aid in build
ing it. If the line should be built,'
he said, it would be a great oppor
tunity for Newberry, and one which
Newberry could not afford to let pass,
if it were possible to bring'the road
here. And from the expressions he had
see he said, and taking into con
sideration the advantages which New
berry had to offer, he believed New
berry to be the most advantageous
point to wiheh to b'ring the road, and
he believed that Newberry would. go
to work to secure it..
The heaviest rain that has fallen
in Newberry for some years fell here
yesterday afternoon about 2' o'clock.
It rained very heavily for fully one
hour anad the streets were flowing
streams and Scott's en tek on the
aorth side was w swollen hIat it was
impossible fer ohtse 'ii ':hved on
either side of it, to cross for several
omi. The stre ts and sidewalks
will be very much torn up on account
of this heavy downpour.

NUMBFUNG THE HOUSS.
Metropolitan System Has Been
Adopted-Preparatory for Free
City Mail Delivery.
Alderman J. R. Green, who is a
special committee of one to look after
the numbering of the houses and the
naming *of the streets, preparatory
to the inauguration of free delivery in
the city, has been very. active in look
ing after the work and has secured
the service of Mr. J. B. Rodgers,' of
Mr. Rodgers is connected with the
Columbia post office a,, one of its car
riers, and has had experience also in
the numbering of houses in other cit
ies, and thoroughly understands the
work. He began the numbering for
Newberry last week and in a very
short time will have it completed. He
has adopted the metropolitan system
and the numbers begin east. and run
west, and south and run north. There
is no street in Newberry which runs
straight through the city, but under
the system adopted it will be. very
easy to locate any place when you un
derstand just how the work is being
Each block contains one hundred
nunrbers. If there are not sufficient
houses to take up one hundred, why
the next block will start with the next
one hundred, anyway. In the resi
dente portion 26 feet is measured off
for each residence and in the busi
ness portion 16 feet.' In .the mill dis
trict it took just 26. feet for each
house. Of course in the other por
tions of the city in some places there
would be only one house to the block,
but the same system was followed
throughout. When you strike a 1200
block, for instance, that number runs
clear through the city, and ,if you
werel at 600 and wanted to know
where 1200 was, you have only to
count s;x blocks further on towards
the north or the west, the 100 black
having started on the east side and on
the south side. It is probable that
for thc names' of the strqets iron
posts will be erected at each corner,
with the names of each street in large
letters on top of this post.

Dresident W. G. Childs, of the C.,
N. & L. has torn down the greater
part of the old trestle of his road at
Newberry. He, however, has left a
portion of it on the south side of
Scott 's creek, whieh will be ased as a
coal chute and which will make it
very convenient for unloading coal.
The Herald and News called atbten
tion to this arrangement some while
ago and suggested that the commis
sioners of public works would arrange
a tramway from this chute up to the
power house and. thus save the an
noyance and expense of having to
ray their coal from the depo't. Even
'if this is not done, however, it will
be much more convenient to unloard

Not the Voices of the Sea.
A lecturer, who has covered the
greater part of the country in deliv

discourses on travel, tells this story
to prove that illusions are essential
to human happiness. .He remained
overnight with the chairman of the
entertainment committee after deliv
ering a lecture in a seashore town on
Long Island. In the early niorning
he was awakened by the sound of a
suction pump in.violent action, but he
dozed off again after noting that there
was a high wind and a storm threat
aning from~ off the neighboring. sea.
At the breakfast table he asked:
"Didn't I hear. a pump working
:this morning, or was I dreaming?"
''Why, yes,'' answered his host,
"My f'ather-dn-law is an old sailor
man, and when we get a little water
in the cellar, he delights in pumping
it out. This house had heen idle
three years, till .we came along and
bought it for the very reajon that
others rejected it for.. With father,
a little thing like water in the cellar
was really an advantage. "
"Indeed!" remarked the lecturer.
"But besides the noise of the pungp I
thought I heard (reflecting for a mo
ment) oh, yes! It sounded like the
creaking of timbers and the wind in
the rigging. I am curious to know
how you duplicate those voices of the
sea to please the retired captain."
"0 land!" said the hostess. "Our
new girl just over from Sweden, has
been going about the house all morn

petticoat and her old peg shoes."
