.THE CLINCH IELD COAL MINES
And the C., C. & 0. Road-Mr. Z. F.
Wright Gives His Impres
President Z. F. Wright. of th. New
berry Cotton mills. and President
Geo. W. Summer. of the Mollohon
Mfg. Co.. were of the party of cot
ton manufacturers in this State who
were last week the guests of the
Clinehlfield railroad and the Clinch
field Coal Mine owners on the trip
over the new C., C. & 0. road, and a
visit to the coal mines owned by these
As is known this road from the coal
fiel'ds has been completed at great ex
pense across thc mountains, and is
now in operation to Bostick. Work
is being pushed rapidly on the link
between Bostick and Spartanburg a
distance of thirty one miles. It is
no doubt the purpose of the promo
ters of this road to build to the At
lantic coast, but up to this time no
defin.ite plans have been made for ex
tending the road from Spartanburg.
As is known the Newberry chamber
of commerce has a special committee
appointed to look after Newberry's
interest in connection with the exten
sion of this road from Spartanburg.
The probability of securing the road
via Newberry seems very favorable
and it is hoped in the near future to
have some of the officials of the road
to visit Newberry. If the banquet,
which is proposed to be held by the
chamber of commeree, is held, it is
-hoped that some of these officials may
be able to he present at this banquet.
If it is not held, however, it is hoped
to have the officials visit Newberry
Knowing the interest which the
people of Newberry feel in the ef
fort to secure this road when it is un
dertaken to build it from Spartanburg
to the coast and President Wright
being chairman of the special commit
tee, The Heral and News asked Mr.
Wright to tell something of his trip
and the country and the coal fields
and the prospects of extending the
road to the coast.
In answer to this request Mr.
By invitatioli of the Clinchfield
Coal Corporation about fifty cotton
millmen of the State were taken on a
trip over the Clinehfield, Carolina and
Ohio road to Dante, Va., at which
point the coal mines are located.
This company now owns about 3,
000,000 aeres in the 'heart of the
mountains, and is now operating what
will be at sometime the largest coal
mines in this country.
No efforts were spared to make this
trip a most delightful one in every
way. The C. C. and 0. road now runs
from Dante, Va., to Bostiek, N. C.,
and by October will be completed to
Spart.anbu.rg, S. C.
The party was taken over the S. A.
L. Bostiek, from there over the C., C.
& 0. to the coal fields. This line h.as
been completed at an enormous
expense, 20 miles of it costing $195,
000 per mile. The scenery along
this route can not be surpassed any
where in this country. There is one
point on the road at which the rail
road can be seen at three different
poins all not more than a few hun
dred yards apart. The country along
this route is undeveloped but at some
future day will no doubt re.ach a
point not excelled by any of our
thickly populated districts today.
The railroad- runs along the side of
the river Toe for fifty miles. This
river is banked by the highest moun
tains a-long this range, hence the
stream is very swift. There is enough
power now going to waste on this
river to run all of the millIs in South
Carolina and North Carolina combin
ed, and it is only a question of a short
time when this will be utilized.
This special trip was taken during
the day and was taken very slowly
so as to give the party an opportun
ity of enjoying the beautiful scenery.
When t:he party reached Johnson
City, a very delightful little eity of
12,000 people, tihey were met at the
train by a committee of citizens who
took them on a little trolly ride
around the city and out to the Na
Itional Soldiers' Home. where the gov
ernent has spent $3,000,000 in order
to care for the old soldiers. It might!
be saidl here as a matter of interest
that this little city is considered the
healthiest. point in the United States.
The objective point, namely, the
[coal fields, was reached early Satur
day morning. The little town whieh
i-s entirely new is owned exclusively
by the Clincehfield Coal corporation.
They have already spent a large sum
of money in developing this town and
coal mines and are now busily engag
ed making improvements and increas
ing the capacity of the mine. All
modern improvements have been used.
and electrie l.ights have been .instail
ed in all the -houses, water works ove,
the nt ire village, an.d everything has
been done to make this a delightful
place to live.
The party was taken through the
1erallo wat eX )Ii WZ by I I' Ic h
ral manager. who by the way. is the
highest salaried man in their business
The mines are operated by electri
eitv. lines of wire being run through
the mines and operating the little
trolies by which the coal is taken
from the mines to the ears for ship
inent. The party was given la ride
through the mines, which extended a
mile and a half through the moun
tains and about 500 feet below the
It is impossible to describe the sen
sation experienced on this trip
through t-he mines and some idea of
the field might be obtained when you
remember that this shaft or hole in
the mountain is only about eight or
ten feet wide and hardly ,high enough
for a man six feet high t) stand erect.
The return trip was ,aade via Blue
bield, W. Va., Roanoke, Va., and Win
ston-Salem, N. C., on down to Char
leston. This detour was made on ac
ouut of a fall in of one of the tun
nels on t:he C., C. and 0. road.
The general engineer of this road
being on the train with us during the
antire trip gave us some very valu
able information in regard to build
ing railroads and it was my pleasure
to have quite a long talk with him on
the general subject of railroads and
incidentally on tahe subject of the C.,
C. and 0. coming by Newberry. He
was thoroughly familiar with the road
from Spartanburg to Columbia both
by Newberry and -down Broad river.
There is no question in my mind
but that this road will be ex
tended to Charleston. The route
from Spartanburg has not been select
ad, but it is my opinion we have a
fair chance of securing this road if
proper inducements are offered.
Mr. Caples, the chief engineer, just
spoken of, is a very able, man and
horoughly familiar with railroad
work. He very kindly promised to
visit Newberry sometime in the near
future .and go ove. the route careful
y and is very anxious to get all in
formation he can concerning the route
which will go by Newberry, and has
also promised to visit our town ani
ive the citizens a talk on the sub
ject of building railroads and advaii
tages derived therefrom.
As has been stated before no de
%nite plans have been adopted for the
building of this road from Spartan
burg to Charleston and as this op
portunity is so very important it
seems to me tihat we should lose no
time in arranging some systematie
work by which we will be enabled to
show the authorities the advantage
af coming by this important posint.

In the report in the State of the
commencement at Laurens of the
graded schooil the following is said
of President Harms:
"The beginning of the commence
ment was on Sunday morning, May
30, with a sermon by the distinguish
ed president of Newberry college,'Dr.
J. Henry Harms. He took for his
text, Micha 6: 8: "And what doth
the L6rd require of thee, but to do
justly and to love mercy and to walk
humbly with thy God ' The sermon
was one of such high order that it is
a pity not to give the press a steno
graphic report of it so that the public
might grasp every thought. Newberry
college may he assured of the support
and confidence of the people of South
Carolina so long as Dr. Harms re
mains its -able president.
"Dr. Harms preached again Sun
day evening, and this sermon also was
greatly appreciated by the large audi
ence. For both of these sermons Vhe

One of the most enjoyed receptions
during the commencement season was
that given by Miss Ruby Summer on
Friday evening,.June 4, at the home
of her father, Mr. Charlie Summer.
The reception was given in honor'of
Miss Summer's three charming guests
Misses Rogers, Graham, and Steele.

day night, and altlhough it was a most
inlement evening yet everyone was
present and everything moved off as
smoothly and as charmingly as could
be expected. There were fifty-nine in
attendance, which included all the
juniors and seniors and President and
Mrs. J. H. Harms. The banquet was
served by the ladies of thre A. R. P.
church, and it was an excellent one,
and most tastefully and beautifully
served. Altogether the junior recep
tin was one of .the best this year
ever held. The banquet was served
in the dining room at the Crotwell
hotel, and it was quite tastefully dec

The next meeting of the D. A. Dick-! in

of the director, on the first Wednes
day in July.
The lonor of naming this chapter
for Col. Dickert is a worthily bestow
ed one. No braver man ever wore
the gray, nor loved the cause of the
Confederacy more, nor ran greater
personal risks in order to help the
cause on to the much desired end, but
one which was not obtained on ac- i
