FOR Y. I. C. A.
Tentative Organization Made.-Com
mittee Appointed.-Plans for
Using Old Court House.
In accordance with announcement
previously made a meeting was held
in the rooms of the chamber of com
meree on Tuesday evening for the
purpose of discussing the advisabili
ty of organizing in Newberry a Y.
M. C. A. as a brane, of the inter
state Y. M. C. A.
Mr. Huntington. of Charlotte, in
terstate secretary, was present by in
vitation and made a very interesting
talk concerning the work of the Y.
M. C. A.
The attendance at the meeting was
not as large as it should have been,
but the interest was sufficient to war
rant an effort being made to organize
an association in this city.
Mr. A. C. Jones is a member of the
executive committee and some days
ago suggested the advisability of tak
ing up the work in Newberry.
At the meeting on Tuesday evening
a temporary organization was effect
ed with Mr. W. A. MeSwain. as pres
ident, and Mr. R. M. Werts, as seere
A committeee composel of Messrs.
Geo. S. Mower. 0. B. Mayer, A. C.
Jones and W. A. McSwain was ap
pointed to canvass the situation with
a view of an organization of a county
Y. M. C. A.
Mr. Huntington explained tha work
and manner of proceeding ai.a while
here also mad a careful inspection
and study of the old court house with
a view of converting it into a Y. M.
C. A. building. according to sugges
tions contained in Mr. Jones' recent
article. Mr. Huntington gave it as
his opinion that the old court house
could be converted into a very desir
able building for this purpose. The
idea being to use the basement for
bath rooms, the first floor for offices
and writing rooms wit,h a ladies'
rest room, and the second floor for
an auditori,um and class rooms. and
also to add a third story for dormi
tory or sleeping rooms.
VOf course, in order to do this it
would be necessary to have the or
ganization formed and to secure per
mission of the people of the county to
convert the building into a Y. M. C.
To equip it as outlined by Mr.
Huntington would probably take $10,
000 .or $15,000 but when finished it
would be an ideal building and also
a very desirable location and as a
Young Men's Christian Association
building with the organization behind
it the rooms would always be in good
condition and special care would be
taken to furnish and keep the rooms
set apart for the ladies from the
It is hoped the committee will be
sucessful in its canvass and that the
organization will be effected very
soon so that the next legislature may
take some action either to turn the
building over for this purpose or to
submit the question to the people of
There can be no possible opposition
to Fire building being used as indi
ated and with its central location it
would be a great convenience to the
ladies who come from thbe country to
do their shopping to have a place of
this kind where they could refresh
themselves and rest after making the
journey to the city.
In addition to the reading rooms
and bath room the dormitories would
be opened to the people of the county
as well as to those of the city.

chanted by Rabbi Kerach, of Colum
Miss Mann, by her sweet, sunny dis
position and attraetive personality
has ever held a sway over the hearts
of her hosts of friends and admirers,
and it vas a great pleasure to the
large company assembled to join with
her and her happy lover in solemniz
ing the happy nuptial vows which
made their two lives one. However,
it is much to be regretted that her
marriage to Mr. Price will take her
away from this city. Mr. Price's
home is in Spartanburg, vhere he is
one of the principal merchants of that
place, being at the head of one of
t.he largest clothing -establishments in
On account of the marriage festivi
ties the home of Mr. and Mrs. Mann
was simply though tastily and pret

Promptly at the hour named, to the
sweet strains of Lohengrin's wedding
march, played by Miss Eva Wright,
the Rabbi took his place and Mr.
Price came from the rear of the hall
and stopped under the canopy of
green and horseshoe of silver to await
the coming of the pretty bride on the
arm of her father, having been pre
ceded by her dame of honor, Mrs.
Abe Summerfield, nee Miss Jennie
Mann, a sister of the bride.
Rabbi Kerach chanted the marriage
ceremony in Hebrew and used all the
symbols pertaining to the Jewish
faith in performing these rites. At
the request of the groom, Mr. Otto
Klettner, of this city. read the mar
riage contract in English. At the con
elusion of the ceremony the congratu
lations were sincere and profuse.
The bride was married in the lace
robe and lovely veil used by her sis
ter, Miss Jennie, at her marriage last
year.' She carried an exquisite bridal
bouquet of ferns, -white carnations
and bi-ide's roses. After t-he recep
tion was over and the congratulations
were ended, Mrs. Price changed her
wedding gown for :her going-away
suit. which was a handsome braid-ed
blue silk coat suit.
Immediately after the ceremony de
licious refreshments, consisting of a
salad and sweet course, were handed
the guests, and later punch was served
from an immense punch bowl in the

upon Mr. and Mrs. Price betokened

SOUTHERN POWER COMPANY.
Have Surveyed to Newberry.-Engi
neering Party in Charge of A. -E.
Hutchinson Now in City.
The Southern Power Company of
which Dr. W. Gill Wylie, now of New
York, but formerly of Chester county,
is )resident, began operations only a
few years ago by building a dam on
Catawba river, and transmitting pow
er to the towns and cities near by.
The development of this company
has been most remarkable and there
are plants now not only on the Ca
tawba at Catawba station, but at
Great Falls in Lancaster county and
'also at Rocky .Creek in the same coun
The company is developing a plant
at Ninety-nine Islands in Chester
At Catawba station they have a
plant of 10,000 H. P. and at Great
Falls and Rocky Creek 30,000 H. P.
each. At Ninety-nine Islands when the
plant is developed there will be about
12,000 H. P.
The company has transmitted this
power to Rock Hill, Charlotte. Salis
bury and as far as Greensboro, N. C.
In this State a line has been built
to Chester and on to White Stone sta
tion passing Mt. Tabor in Union coun
tv some 8 or 10 miles from Union.
From Chester it is proposed to go to
Spartanburg. Greenville, and in fact
will probably cover all of this sec
tion of the State.
The engineering party is in New
berry at present having run a pre
liminary line from Mt. Tabor via Un
ion and Whitmire to Newberry.
The company will establish a sub
station in Newberry from which the
power will be transmiitted to the cot
ton mills and other enterprises which
desire power of this kind. This com
pany can furnish power much cheaper
than a local company can and it is
little doubt that the mills here and
othe,r enterprises taking power will
contract with this company for what
power they need.
In fact the Newbetry Cotton Mill
will equip its new building for use of
In Greenwood for instance the com
missioners of public - works secure
power from a coinpany on the Sa
vannah river and then transmit it to
those who need light and power in
the city of Greenwood instead of op
erating the plant which was built lty

now in Newberry and which is in
