SURVEY TROLLEY 1
LINE TO LAURENS
Party Left Greenville Last
ALL-STATE TROLLEY LIME
Possible L'xicnsioil of Lino to Colum
bia and Lower Sostlon of state.
Taking In Kutlrc stale.
For Iho purpose ol* making a pre
liminary survey of the route of the
Greenville. Spartnnhurg nnd Ander
son Railway between Greenville and'
Laurens and Clinton, a surveying par
ty of fourteen left Contestee yesterday
about seven miles below Greenville
on the Reedy River road. The sur
vey is being made by .Mr. .1. E. Sir
rlne, a mill architect and engineer
of this city.
It was announced by the officers
of the company some time ago that
the surv< v to Laurens and Clinton
would begin at once, but for some
reason the work has been delayed
and the party did not Met out until
yesterday. The line had already been
surveyed to Coutesteo, and it was
there taken up by Mr. Sirrine's party
and will be pushed on to an early
completion. The regular surveying
party, which has been doing this
woi k since the surveys of* the roads
was first begun, are busy at other
points at this time, and for this rea
son, Mr. Sirrino was given the con
tract for the survey,
The survey is only a preliminary
? me. and does not mean that the line
will be built to Laurens.
Many believe, however, that this will
be among the Hl'?l branch lines con
structed by the <;. S. and A. people.
The survey is being made to get an
estimate of the cost of running the
The people along this route, and
especially those at Laurens. have la
ken the greatest interest in the new
line, and have warmly evpressed their
desires to get a connection with this
trolley line through Cue Piedmont.
Among the mote material expressions
of this desire, is the action of the
Watts Mills, at Laurens, which has
made a conditional stock subscrip
tion of twenty-live cents per spindle,
aggregating $10,800, contingent upon
the construction of the line to Lau
rens and to the Watts mill, in order
I to see if the line can be built and at 1
what cost, the preliminary survey is
now being made.
Slate to Slate Syst?.
In connection With the survey, and
possible construction of the line to
j Laurens. there are some Interesting
points of speculation .which appear
to render it probable that the Inter
urban trolley branch to Laurens will
be among the first constructed.
There is in construction now. in
North Carolina, the Piedmont Trac
tion company, backed by the same
financial interests, essentially, as the
C. S. & A. Of this line, .Mr. YV. S.
Lee, vice president of the Southern
Tower company, and Mr. J. P. Clark
is general manager, which latter
gentleman also holds the same office
with regard to the South Carolina
line. This twin-sister of the South
Carolina line lias progressed further
than the G. S. & A. a contract for
construction having already been let.
That line will connect a number
of the principal cities of the Pied
mont section of North Carolina, ami
from Charlotte, will reach down to
Spartanbtirg, at which point it will
connect with the Greenville, Spar
tanburg and Anderson railway. When
this junction lias been attained, the
two roads will probably be consoli
dated, or may operate together, un
der their old corporate names.
This will give a trolley system con
j nectliig the most Importnhl industrial
sections of the Carolina Piedmont belt.
With the Laurens ami Clinton
branch, however, those who have ta
ken a comprehensive survey of the
entire movement see indications of a
rather sensational turn of the trol
ley connections, From Clinton, the
construction of a line down to Co
lumbia, the capital of tin- Slate,
would be a most natural course to
pursue, and from Columbia, there
would be no good reason Why
branches should not eventually be
constructed connecting the cities of
lower Carolina, and eventually reach

Properly prepared cereals are

superior to any other method
and with a great saving of

In the "Caloric" you can

along the route. It will be remem

subscription of twenly-tive tents per
spindle to the stock of the railway.
Private individuals, also have made
some st<icl-c subscriptions, and it is
believed that it will be only a few
