MUCH DAMAGE WAS
WROUGHT BY FREEZE
Telephone and Telegraph Poles and Wires
Prostrated by Ice King. Light
The heavy sleet and rain storm of
last Friday night caused much damage
to the wire service of this city, many
telegraph and telephone poles and wires
having been prostrated by the heavy
coating of ice, which put both services
out of commission, practically, for a
day or so. The electric light service
was also interrupted and the city was
in darkness Friday night.
The telegraph service was resumed
Monday, and the local telephone lines
interrupted are being rapidly repaired.
The freeze also injured orchards and
timber, and on Saturday travel on the
roads was difficult, owing to the ob
struction of trees and limbs, some of
the rural letter carriers being unable
to make their usua1 trips.

Bill Provides for Eleven Circuits, Comi
ties of Saluda, Lexington and Edge*
field to Form New One.
Columbia, January 31.?A few years
ago the number of judicial circuits in
this State was increased from eight to
ten. Now, in view of the growing
business of the courts, it is proposed to
make an additional circuit, but the
change will not alter the present ar
rangement very materially, except to
lighten the burden of the courts in the
5th and the 8th circuits. The bill was
introduced by Representative Tonvp
kins, of Richland, in which county the
congestion of the court docket is the
worst in the State, and the Judiciary
Committee, to whom the bill was re
ferred, has reported a substitute bill.
The changes to be made by the pro
posed bill would be as follows:
Lexington and Edgefield are taken
from the 5th circuit and Saluda from
the 8th, and the three counties form
the new 11th circuit. The 5th circuit,
now composed of the counties of Rich
land, Kershaw, Lexington and Edge
field, will consist only of Richland and
Kershaw, adjoining counties closely
connected by rail and wagon road, and
the work of the one county of Richland
is exceedingly heavy.
The 8th circuit, now composed of the
populous counties of Abbeville, Lau
rens, Greenwood, Newberry and Saluda,
is left still with four counties, only Sa
luda being taken away.
The other circuits are not disturbed.
Under the proposed bill the judges
would not be disturbed, as Judge Gary,
of Richland, would remain judge of the
5th circuit and Judge Klugh, of Abbe
ville, would remain judge of the 8th. A
new judge would have to be elected
from either Saluda, Edgeflold or Lex
ington for the new 11th circuit.
Solicitor Cooper, of the 8th, would
not be disturbed, his home being in
Laurens; but Solicitor Timmerman, of
the 5th, would be taken out of his cir
cuit, his home being in Lexington.
However, all solicitors are elected this
year, and this would make no legal dif
ficulty as to tenure.
