"The liquor situation, however, is
different. You ask me for u state
; ment of what plates have been closed,
i Of course you know tiiat the city of
Charleston has no power to close a
place UP except by a refusal to la
I sue. a lh-en.se to do business of any
[kind. Where a business, such as the
liquor business, ls run in violation of
lay the elly has no power ny any
I process that I know of to close a
place up nor has any law enforcing
power in the State any such power.
"Notwithstanding this, the tem
per of the methods that we have
idoptcd have compelled many places
of prominence voluntarily to close
aiher than risk the odium and turn
ill attached to the constant raiding
>y the police. I mention particularly
jot li hotels. Many other places that
ad been flagrantly, by bold fronts
ind otherwise Violating thc law, have
jeen driven at least to cover; until
>n the whole the sale of liquor in
Charleston, if carried on at all now,
s not being carried on with any open
leflance of law. I cannot tell you
:onscientlously that in the city of
Charleston no liquor id being sold
igainst thc law. If you have been
advised that anvwherc outside the
:ity of Charleston any better efforts
i ??.vt been made, all things conslder
, d, than we have made in thc city
.f Charleston, or that there ls a
?iace where liquor is now being sold
. have nothing to say but express my
?rofound doubts. By comparison, I
.'eel justified in saying that within
he city of Churleston we have made
?realer relative strides to carry out
our wishes than unywhere that I

Capt. Anderson announced that the
road has pious to convert two of the
store rooms in the Anderson hotel
building into a passenger depot to bc
used until the road cun build u pas
senger d?pot some time In the near
future. The rooms are numbered 413
and 420 and are thc ones next to the
i home place of Mrs. Lou Osborne.
The ro?m nearest Mrs. Osborne's
home will be used as a watting root
tor white people. A ticket office
will he built between the two rooms,
and the second -room being the wait
ing room for colored people. Capt.
Anderson says the walting rooms will
He 4? feet by 22 feet each, which will
*tve ample . room to take -Jure
the. passengers. Toilet and rest rooms
will be established in the roar part
.)f the store rooms. Stairways leading
from the two store rooms to the pa*
.enger unit -ella sheds next to the
tracks will be put In. Capt. Ander
son says that part of the building will
be remodelled and so improved that
the people won't be able to recognize
jtAB the same building now standing.
.Tor the present the other store rooms
will be left as they are with toe ex
ception of the room nearest the .Ion
kins store room. This last room ls
now occupied by the pawn shop. An
; entrance will be made through a part
I of this store room to tho freight sta
I lion to be erected in the rear of the
"I have maintained all the time that
? we would erect a freight station sce
ned to none In this part of the coun
l try, and that is our plan. The buiid
! 'ng will be erected about GO feet off
I of West Market street and will be
50 feet by 200 feet. Between Mar
ket street and the freight depot will
.be laid Belgian block paving. A 40
or 50 foot driveway will be provided
I for so that express, mail, baggage.
. wa got1 s, and drays will be able to
drive around the freight station," de
clared Capt. Anderson. "The baggage
j mail and express room will be in the
I basement of the two store rooms to
I be used as a passenger station. The
freight ajfition will be oommencjjl
lust as soon aa the paasenger ar
rangements are carried out, and I
have Instructed Mr. Porter, our chief
engineer, to proceed with these at
once. I presume that everything will
be' In readiness, including the um
brella sheds, so that we will bo able
to bring our paasenger trains up to
Main street in two months-maybe in
less time. Work on the freight depot
will be commenced then and it won't
be long before we will be operating
our fretght trains up to the heart ot

any warehouses on our property."
