TO RELOCATE ROAD.
Efforts to be Made to Relocate Road 1
Between Newberry and Little
The committee on roaGs of the New
berry chamber of commerce held a
meeting Saturday faternoon to discuss
the question of relocating the road
between Newberry and Little Moun
tain so as to avoid many as possi
ble of the grade crossings of the rail-;
road. A committee composed of
Messrs. J. B. Hunter, E. H. Kibler, F.
P. Devore. G. C. Glasgow and C. For
est Summer was appointed to take the,
matter up with a similar committee
from Prosperity, and the joint commit
tee to take up the matter wtih the
property owners, and those interested
along the highway.
This is a very important matter and
it is hoped that the committee may be
able to effect a satisfactory arrange
ment with the property holders for
the relocation of this road.
In this day of increased travel by
railroad as well as by public road, it
is almost criminal to have grade
crossings of the railroad when they
can possibly be avoided. The road
between Newberry and P'rosperity has
a great many of these railroad cross
ings, most of which can be avoided
without injury to the property of any
citizen and to the great advantage not
only of the property owners who live
along the highway but to the travel
ing public generally.
It is hoped that the committee may
secure the co-operation of the super
visor, the railroad officials and the
people who own the land. The move
ment is in the interest more largely
of the latter than any other class of
our citizens, because they live along
this road and have frequent occasion
to use it.
