OF TWO CITIES.
Interesting Conference Held In Colunv
bia?-Visit of Laurens Delegation
Columbia, through the Chamber of
Commerce committee on mail facilities,
is going right after the postoffice au
thorities for needed changes. A meet
ing was held yesterday at which Post
master Ensor was present and the en
tire mail connections of the city were
gono over. The second assistant post
master general will be written at once
concerning the mail service on the af
ternoon train between Columbia and
Laurens on the Columbia, Newberry
and Laurens road. The postal authori
ties have not yet notified President
Childs of that road when they want the
service to begin, and although the ser
vice was authorized some time ago, it
has not yet gone into effect.
Along with the mail service between
Columbia and Laurens, the people of
the latter city want some changes in
the schedules in order that they can
get the mail early in the morning. A
delegation came down from Laurens
. yesterday and appeared before Presi
dent Childs, asking him to change the
schedule of the train leaving here at 1
a. m. so that it would leave here at 4
a. m. This train will be a mixed one as
at present, but arrangements will be
made for handling the early papers for
the subscribers. A petition along this
line was also presented to the Chamber
of Commerce committee and that com
mittee has endorsed the request.?The
State, 19th inst.
The Committee referred to consisted
of N. B. Dial. Dr. IL K. Aiken, M. J.
Owings and Dr. W. H. Dial, and R. A.
Cooper. These gentlemen, working for
the benefit of this community, made
as strorj a presentation of their
cause as could be done and received
the assurances of President Childs,
the 'State Company and the Colum
bia Chamber of Commerce that
relief would be given us. President
Childs agreed that the mail facil
ities of Laurens were the poorest
of any town of its size in the State and
that he was ready at all times to assist
the city of Laurens. The agitation
must be kept up until something is done.
Let everyone help. Keep talking.
Mr. Childs Agrees to Hold Train.
In speaking of the conference be
tween himself and the representatives
from Laurens which took place on
Wednesday, Mr. Childs said that he
had agreed to delay the freight train
leaving here at 1 o'clock at night until
4 o'clock provided that the officials of
the Charleston and Western Carolina!
would change the schedule of the freight t
train on their road to Greenville so that
the train from Columbia would connect
with it at Laurens as at present.
This committee which represents the
Chamber of Commerce, the city coun
cil ami the business men of Laurens
after the conference with Mr. Childs
took up the matter of holding the
trains on the Charleston and Western
Carolina with Mr. G. G. Lynch, tho
superintendent of the system, and the
result is pending for his reply.
The people of Laurens want an early
morning train and have evidently
reached that point where they are go
ing to have it if it is possible. At pres
ent all of the mails arrive and depart
at the same time once each day and 24
hours intenvene between times.- The
State, 20th inst.
