THE C., C. & 0. ROAD.
Mr. August Kohn, the Colunibia
correspondent of the News and Cour
ier. has recently taken a trip over
the C., C. & 0. road or that portion
of it that has been opened for traffi.
From Spartanburg to Bo.;ti, City,
a distance of 31 miles, has not yet
been completed. The road from Bos
tic City covers a distance .f nearly
300 miles, and rapid progress is be
ing made on the section from Bostic
City to Spartanburg. and it is ex
pected to have this part openeJ by
It was stated in the Spartanburg
Journal of Saturday in a special
from Laurens that the C., & W. C.
from Spartanburg to Laurens had
been leased, and would be uied1 by
the C., C. & 0. from Spartaaburg io
Laurens. and that a force would be
put to work on this div;sio.1 in the
near future to prepare it for the
heavy trains that are to be operated
by the C., C. & 0. This report could
not te eonfirmed on Satur.ay as Mr.
Clevelant was not in Spar,,nburg.
The C., C. & 0. road is probably
one of the best constructed that has
ever been completed or underiaken in
the South and in fact no road has
ever been constructed in a more sub
The dispatch from Laurens in re
gard to the lease from the C. & W. C.
stated that it had not been determin
ed whether the C. & W. C. would be
used from Laurens to Port Royal,
and Port Royal made the terminal,
or whether traffic ar:rangements
would be made with the C., N. & L.
into CouNbia, and the A. C. L. into
Charleston, or whether tehe C., C. &
0. would build from Laurens.
Mr. Kohn in speaking of this part
of his trip and the probability of the
extension of the road from Spartan
"Perhaps many would like to
know whether the Clinehfleld road is
to build its main line to Columbia,
and from here go on to Charleston.
This particular letter was intended
to deal with the actual construction
and to state that there is today an ex
cellent train service between Dante
and Bostic, a.nd that by the close of
the year the Clin.ehfleld trains will be
running into Spartanburg.
"it has taken millions and millions
of dollars to build and equip the
Clinehfield road over its present route
of 288 miles. It is known that the
management of the Clinchfield road
want to go to Charleston, that is
their hope and their ambition. .Mr.
Powell and Mr. Ream and Mr.
Carter all appreciate and realize
what it will mean to their road to
have their main line run into Char
leston and there get in touch with
the ocean transportation. They want
to come by way of Columbia, but
they are likely to stop and catch
breath when they get through with
the work to Spartanburg.
"'The expert engineers and the ex
pert economists have advised the
construction to the Atlantie coast,
and that the road should go to Char
leston. The company now owns wat
er frontage in Chiarleston, and in
time will get there, but such things
" There may be certain compelling
contingencies that will bring about
the more imnrediate construction of
the line proper into Columbia and
Charleston. but the likelihood is that
for the present at least traffic ar
rangemnents will be made. and how
long this will respond to the needs
f'th re coa-aringfl road, w~iis
high ideals or what a load ought to
be. remainS to be seen.
The question which the people of
Newberry are interested in is w hethi
er this road will go via Columbia to
Cha.rleston. Of course, if it goes to
Laurens and is coming from there to
Columbia we will be :right in line.
The committee from the chamber
of commerce will try to get in touch
with the authorities and endeavor to
el anythijng that (.as be donre to have
the riKad (.ome( this way.

L noticed in the papers some time
ag,o that Senator Tillman said that
thre difficulty at Clemson between
Capt. Minus and President Mell was
a teniplerallental ditfe.reuce. Of
VORINC Vous 1yu now what that llicals.
Senator Tillman illustrated his mean
ing by saving that you had frequent
ly seen two iorse!s that would not
work togetier )ut would pull single
alright. That being the case. of
cotulrSe one of them should have got
ten out. There seems to have been
a lot of temiperanetital differences at
Clemson first and last.
It seems from what I have .read of
the writing of Trustee Mai that
there are other temperamental differ
eneves at Clemson and I suppose they
will have the attention of the full
board at th-e annual meeting.
That trouble at ClintoU with the
base ball teams was unfortunate. I
am sorry that Clinton correspondent
of the Lau:rens Advertiser wrote as
he or she or it did. I do not believe
our Newbery boys precipitated or
started -any trouble because they are
not built that way. I am not an en
thusiast on base ball but I believe in
fair play and justice. The reply of
Profs. Goggans and Riser was dig
nitied and manly. Well, I hope it is
all over now and that good fellow~
ship will rettrn.
The city coucil has passed Tie
trash ordinance. Tha.t is another one
to the credit of the Civie association.
Now for its enforcement. That is up
to council. The streets in many plae
es are in fearful condition.
Have you seen Willowbrook park?
It is a beauty. The name is pretty
but too long. The idler does hope
this private enterprise and public
spirit will wake up Mayor Langford
and council to put a nice little park
over on this side. There are a num
be,r of places wihere ofne could be lo
cated. The Idler wants you to hurry
up for I want some cool and shady
place to roam and to meditate. Sur-e
ly a whole city can and will keep
pace with the work of a corporation
in the matter of beautifying and ad
orning the city. We ought to' have
two or three parks on the east side.
The trustees have elected the su
perintendent and teachers for the
school but they can't decide on tire
lot. Well, that is a very important
matter. if they get the wrong teach
er, a change can be made but once a
lot is seleeted it will take a long time
to be able to change and then it
would be made at a great -cost. Be
sure you are right and then go ahead.
And a few dollars should not keep
the trustees from deciding the best
place and the most suitable place.
Some of the citizens of Newberry
have suggested that tihe Farmers Oil
mill should have a distributing point
for ice up town. The Idler thinks
the suggestion a good one and desires
to pass it on to Mr. John H. Wicker.
Everybody in. Newberry buys ice
from this factory and they make
good ice. Everyone is proud to be
able to use Newberry made ice and
I am satisfied that Mr. Wicker wants
to serve the best interests of all the
people of the community. It fre
quently ha.ppens that some one want.s
a small quantity of ice and cannot
always get it as the wagon passes.
