S. & W. TO LEASE TRACKS.
Such is Statement of One of Road's
Directors.-Mr. J. A. Brock's
Anderson. Nov. 21.-The South &
Western ra.: roa'i has pra,:tieally
madQ arrangements viih the Charles
ton & Western Car(,.na ro-i I to use
the tracks of the latter between
Spartanburg and Greenwood, via
Laurens, 60 miles in length. There
has been no eff 'n i"ae part of t:c
S.'i:h & Western rIad officials to buy
c.utright the tra--_5 of the "Cliarieston
& Western Carolina tracks.
Mr. J. A. Broek, president cf sev
eral Anderson cotton mills and a di
rector in the Charleston & Western
Carc.lina road, gave this information
t% this correspondent today when he
returned -from a directors' meeting
of the road, held in Charleston yes
"The purchase of the road by the
South & Western people was not
brought up at the meeting yesterday.
This meeting was the annual one and
was only a formal one," said Mr.
Bcck. "However, - I had a private
eonversation with Mr. Walters, chief
owner and first vice president of tha
Charleston & Western Carolina road,
and he told me that President Clarke
of the South & Western road had ap
proached him on two occasions to get
trackage arrangements between
Spartanburg and Greenwood, via
Laurens. Mr. Walters says . that
' while the contract had not been sign
ed, it has been practically arranged
for the tracks 'etween Spartanburg
and Greenwood to be let to the South
& Western. Mr. Walters says that
the people baeking 'the South & West
ern road have money and mean busi
ness. Among those interested in that
road are Ryan, Maj. Winder and
others. It is said that the Seaboard
Air Line is behind the whole move
Mr. Brock was asked what 'the
South & Western would do after it
got to Greenwood. He replied, "I
do not know and I do not think that
Mr. Walters knows. It is said, how
ever, in railroad circles that Green
wood will be made a distributing
point, ,and that the road will go from
that point to Savannah. I asked Mr.
Walters why the South & Western
did not use the tree's of the Colum
hia, Newberry & Laurens from Laur-'
ens to Charleston. He said that
leavier rails and heavier roadbeds
'would be necessary for the class ,of'
freight ,to be hauled.''
Mr. Broek was asked what had.
been done toward construicting the
South & Western road. He replied,
"!The Souith & Western road has
about 90 miles of track completed
' and in operation. It commences at
Elkhorn, Ky., and goes toward Spar
tanburg. The distance between those
two points is approximately 300
miles. The completion of the road
from Elkhora to a port in South
Carolina or Georgia means the open
ing up of more than 300,000 acres of
It is very evident that the South
&Western is not getting the use of
the Charleston & Western tracks be
tween Laurens to Greenwood to make
Greenwood, for that end could be
gained should the Columbia, Newber
ry & Laurens road bet-ween Laur
ens and Clinton be used. The dis
tance between Clinton and Laurens
is only nine miles and the distance
Between Laurens and Greenwood is
To Test Constitutionality of the
.Charlestan, Nov. 21.-The service
of the many injunctions during the
past week or fwo, restraining dealers
from selling liquor and property own
ers and agents from permitting its
sale on their property is aibout to re
sult, it is understood, in a big legal
battle to test the validity of the
Carey-C'othran act and the' issue of
Attorney J. P. K. Bryan has been
-engaged by S. P. Schiaderessi, one
of the parties enjoined yesterday,
and it is understood that Mr. Bryan
is to be the leading counsel in the
distiguished array of legal talent
wMenh is to attack the dispensary
law as it now stands upon the books.
It will be recalled that it was Mr.
Bryan who carried the famous Can
tini case before the late Judge Sim
ontor and secured an opinion that
thie law was unconstitutional, an
opinioin which was afterwards re
versed by the United States supreme
eourt. The supreme court allowed,
hiowever, the importation of liquor
for. pernal use, a provision of the
law which has given the state its
chief trouble in the enforcement of
the act ever since it was announced.
The pending action will probably
be the biggest fight that has been
made against the dispensary system
since Mr. Bryan's fight, and it is
possible that the present proceedings
may be of even greater scope and ef
fect. Tiere are said to be several
features of the Carey-Cothran act
whose validity is questioned by te
lawyers, chiefly along the line of the
right of the county to sell where th
right is to be held only by the state,
under the constitution, it is said.
Not Discussing Matter.
The lawyers are, of dourse, averse
to discussing their cases in the news
papers and are very closemouthed
as to what steps they will take, but
sufficient information has been se
cured to warran:t the statement that
a big legal battle is pending.
Appearances have been entered in
several cases by attorneys and addi
tional appearances will probably be
entered before the cases are formally
heard next week. So far as announc
ed Mr. Bryan will appear for Schiad
eressi; John D. Cappelmann for the
Charleston Rifle club; Logan &
Grace for Riddock & Byrns and also
for Pat Carroll; Mordecai, Gadsden,
Rutledge & Hagood for the Charles
ton hotel; George Momeier for the
Turnverein and others. In the array
of counsel will be lawyers represent
ing the owners and agents of proper
tv in which the alleged violations of
the dispensary act have taken place.
It is on account of the property
owners and agents that a particular
ly strong fight will be made. It is
said that the owners of property can
not be enjoined legally, as they have
been under the services of the papers
recently and the lawyers having
charge of these property interests
will present a strong ease.
The dispensary situation was much
talked about today, especially in
blind tiger circles. The fact that oth
er injunctions have been prepared
and are ready for service' makes the
dealers generally uneasy. None of
these' papers were, however, served
