Miss Rosa Lee Burton and Mr. Rob
ert Erwin Sims of Chester were mar
ried yesterday at twelve thirty at the
Frist Presbyterian church.
The bride is a general favorite in
Laurens, numbering her friends among
both the young and old, so her marriage

and the church was crowded with
friends and well wishers.
Promptly at twelve thirty, the hour

Lucas began playing the wedding march,
and the bridal party entered the church,

Lucile Wilson of Newberry, Griflie
Dorroh of Greenville, Frances Abell

in lingerie waists and linen skirts, with
large white hats, and carried bouquets
of carnations. The bride entered the
church with her cousin and maid of
honor, Miss Mary Carwile Burton, of
Newberry, who wore a pretty costume
of Persian lawn and lace. The bride
wore a stylish touring suit of gray over
green taffeta, and looked very lovely.
The ushers were: Messrs. Theodore
Tinsley and Robert Gage of Chester,
F. K. Spratt of Spartanburg, Ossie
Anderson, H. G. Welborn and Reuben

The entertainment took the form of
a "porch party," the large cool piazza
of the Featherstone home being trans
formed for the time into a reception
room, prettily decorated with flowers
and stately palms and drooping ferns.
Tables were arranged for progressive
"Nations," and as there were quite a
large number of guests the game
proved unusually interesting. Each
guest was presented with a score card,
beautifully decorated by the hand of an
artist; each design different, but each
suggestive of the ascendency of bride
roses and the lovely brides of June.
The refreshments were dainty heart
shaped cakes, decorated in white and
green, and pistache ice cream carried
out the color scheme of white and

A Portland, Oregon, dispatch, des
cribes Governor George E. Chamberlain
the democrat, who has just been re
elected, although Republicans were elec
ted to the other offices, as having "the
gladdest hand that was ever reached
out." We object to the reckless use
of the superlative, and, while we are
willing to concede that Governor Cham
berlain is entitled to eminence in this
classification, we would call attention
to the glad hand of Hon. John H. Whar
ton, of Waterloo, whose glad hand we
are ready to pit against the Oregonian's
any day in the year and back it for all
we are worth. ?News and Courier,

Resolution Passed Requesting Railroad
Commission to Have Railroad Put on
Morning and Afternoon Trains.
Spartanburg, June 7.?There was a
meeting held to-day of the members of
the local chamber of commerce, and
representatives from towns along the
Charleston & Western Carolina Railway.
The meeting was attended by represen
tatives fiom Greenwood, Laurens,
Moores, Woodruff, and many members
of chamber of commerce. Messrs. J.
H. Wharton and John H. Earle of the
railroad commission were nlso present.
The meeting took the form of a pro
test against the accommodations which
the C. &.' W. C. railroad is at present
giving Spartanburg and the towns
along the line. There is at present
only one passenger train leaving this
city daily on the road and the through
freights which carry passengers run
with such irregularity that they cannot
be depended upon.
The meeting this afternoon passed a
resolution requesting the railroad com
mission to request the C. & W. C. rail
road to run a train into Spartanburg in
the morning and leaving this city in the
afternoon. The resolution also pro
vided that the present rule of the com
pany to allow passengers to ride on the
through freight be adhered to. The
motion was passed by the body, there
being only one dissenting vote, which
was registered by Mr. H. L. Watson,
of Greenwood, who voted against the
proposed morning train into Spartan
burg. If the train is granted to Spar
tanburg, Greenwood will have a morn
ing train in Augusta, and one also into
Spartanburg, which will without doubt
affect the retail trade of that place.
The meeting this afternoon was well

Dr. W. H. Dial of this city is a mem

and this reference to Dr. Dial's part in
Dr. Dial impressed the desire of Lau
rens to get an early mail service out of
Columbia for Laurens and thence to
Spartanburg. Mr. Childs made a state
ment of the conditions so far as his
road was concerned and what he would
bo willing to do and the committee will
press the suggestion in the hope of
giving Laurens the desired connection
and service. As Mr. Childs stated, it
is a matter with Mr. G. C. Lynch, the
superintendent of the Charleston and
Western Carolina. Some time ago this
was agitated by the Columbia Chamber
of Commerce, and a meeting was held
in Laurens to discuss it, but as yet Mr.
Lynch has not officially notified the com
mittee of his decision.

young folks at your home can enjoy

attended, and lasted for several hours.
The C. & W. C. road was represented
by Mr. Earnest Williams, of Augusta,
general freight and passenger agent of
the road, and Mr. Dorr, who was rep
resenting Superintendent Lynch of the
road. There were many speeches made
both by the representatives of the com
mercial bodies and by the railroad offi
cials. The outcome was that the above
resolution was passed.
PREACHER AND DESERTER.
Unfortunate Case of Matthew Fortner,
Arrested in Qreenville.
Greenville, June 7.?Matthew Fort
ner, aged 28 years, a duly ordained
minister and student at Furman Uni
versity, was arrested hero today for
deserting from the navy. He is mar
ried and has a child. He married Miss
Ava James, of Gainesville, Ga.
Fortner enlisted in the navy four
years ago. He deserted in Hampton
Roads three months after he entered
the service and went diroet to Gaines
ville, where he married. He has been
preaching and teaching ever since, and
the past year supplied a church in a
mill village near here, while pursuing
his course of study at Furman. He
bears an excellent reputation.
Fortner says he was disappointed in
life in the navy, and felt that he could
not remain in it and serve God at the
same time as he desired. He will be
taken to Norfolk and Court-martialled.
Capt. E. M. Blvthe and several promi
nent citizens hero have interested them
selves in Fortner's case, and will try
to get a discharge for him, through pe
tition. Mrs. Fortncr and her baby will
go to the home of her father-in-law in
Pickens, S. C.

Commission Demands That an Extra
Train Between Qreenwood and
Spartanburg be Put On.
Columbia, Juno 9.? At a meeting here
today of the State Railroad Commission
a letter was sent to Mr. G. C. Lynch,
general superintendent of the Charles
ton & Western Carolina railroad, de
manding that an additional train be put
on between Greenwood and Spartan
burg by Laurens, so as to leave Green
wood about 7A.M. and leave Spartan
burg on the return trip between 6 and
7 P. M. This will give Laurens the re
lief it has been seeking so long. There
is only one train each way on this
line and the law gives the commission
power to order another. The letter to
Mr. Lynch asks him to act promptly
and save the commission the necessity
for passing a formal order.
Mrs. Robert Bell Entertains.
Fourteen of the young society people
of the city drove out the evenn j, of the

tertainment given by Mrs. Robert Bell

Inability of Dr. Craighcad, Former Presi

Clemson College, June 10.?The com
mencement exercises at Clemson Col
lege have begun and by Wednofdny 600
students will be turned out at this in
stitution for a vacation of three months.
Today there was very little done by
the students. In the morning a very
interesting sermon was delivered by
Dr. Jas. Y. Fair of Savannah. This
was the baccalaureate sermon and the
auditorium was crowded with visitors
as well as cadets. Dr. Fair is a South
Carolinian, having been born in Abbe
ville and was a leading minister in
Richmond several years ago. From
there he went to Savannah and lie has
done a great deal of missionary work
among the seaman of that' city. Two
years ago he delivered the baccalau
reate sermon to the graduates of the
Columbia Theological seminary and a
year previous he preached a similar
sermon to the graduating class of tho
College for Women, so that he is not a
stranger to Columbians.
It is with regret that President Meli
today announced that Dr. E. 13. Craig
hcad would not be present to deliver
the address to the graduates. Dr. Craig
head is now with the University of
Mississippi and was a former president
of Clemson. Up to yesterday he in
tended coming, but pressing business
with his college will keep him away.
This is especially disappointing to the
I alumni of 1893-94-95 who are present.
