A MOUNTAIN SENSATION.
The yS3teniatic Robbery of Trains on
the Air Line Railroad by an Or
a anized 4ang of Thieveh.
..pC;e l I>ispifh It li' th rs Uwl i'oiri,e.
( .i":ENvt Li.:. A piil l17.-A sen-ation
was e.li-ed here 1(o-day by the airest f
a wiite mani and two negroes charged
with being implicated in a scheme for
whoiesale robbery of the through freight
train pas-iiig this point on the Air Line
R:ailroad. John Caldwell, the white
man of the party, is very widely known
in the city and has rath(r a fauthy repu
tation. He claims to be a mechanic, but
s for some time has been employed by T.
W. Davis in selling organs and machines.
Of the two negroes arrested with him
t Wi. Froneberger is a light mulatto and
moves in the highest circles of colored
society. He has perhaps the best repu
t:ation among the people generally of
any man of his race in the city. His
arrest in consequence was t shuck to
s those who knew him
I The third man, Joe HIarri, is a negro
of unsavory reputation. All three were
committed to jail, but later ii the day
Froneberger was released on $250 bail,
s Wilson Cook and J. A. Russell being his
bondsmen. The facts of the arrest are
withheld because of the remarkable na
s ture of the scheme of robbery unearthed
l in connection therewith. Since about
November la4t the authorities of the
a Richmond and Danville Railroa;l have
e missed various articles of freight from
trains en route southward. Goods to the
a amount of nearly $5,000 have been re
h ported missing. The robbery was traced
0 to this point, and Depot Agent C. II.
Watson began investigations. About
the same time Police Officer Fred
Schlapback discovered that John Cald
ti well had been offering privately a large
lot of plaids for sale. Schlapback fol
lowed up the clue in conjunction with a
detective sent on from Atlanta. It was
e discovered that a systematic plan was
e being operated by an organized band.
o The scheme was to have a member of
the gang conceal himself in a loadec
freight car at some station north of this,
select so much of the cargo as he deemed
e available, and as the train passed the
r fair grounds, just outside the c:ty limits,
- the goods were to be thrown out. Con
iederates would be in waiting to spirit
the goods away until they could be sold.
Last t:iglit the supposed scene of opera
tions was watched. About 10 o'clock,
after the south-bound freight had passed,
a wagon drove up to the railroad bank
e and was hastily loaded with boxes, up
s parently heavy, and driven away. The
o watchers followed, bitt in a manner un
accountable lost sight of the vehicle al
together. This morning a search of the
s vicinity was made and L.o boxes of to
S bacco w~ere found lying by the road-bed
-and another was found in Jo IHarris's,
-marked to Wetutmpka, Ala. Signs were
evident where a large lot of boxes had
ebeen thrown from the tratn and where a
d wagon and its load disappeared to is a
Lmystery. A number o'f other articles
o wvere found in other places, but none
e can be identified until the tracers are
received from Atlatnta. The arrests were
emade as detailed. The officers still want
dPorter Wellby, a negro of bad character
e an d unusual int elligence, who is believed
u. to be the ringleader in the affair. Hie
e .escaped this morning and no trace of
_him has been found. Other parties are
under stuspicion, but so far no railroad
men have been implicated. Since his
incarceration the w~hite marn, Caldwell,
.has informed the chie f of police, Kennedy,
where a lot of 7.500 yards of plaids can
be found at a store in the cotuntry, and
- his statement is taken as indicating a
clear "squeal" later on. The whole
e buisiness is regarded as a consummate
s piece of systematic robbery, and( nothing
else has been talked of on the streets
Fl'RTHIER DEVELOPMENTS IN TH E

Sbiggest piece of systematic stealing ever
Sworked on a Southern railroad," was
Iwhat Deetective HI. T. Fellers had to
ysay to-night of the Air Line freight rob
bery scheme after a hard day's work on
the case. Since the affair was sprung on
the public by the arrest of Caldwvell,
-and the two negroes, Harris and Frone
- berger on Saturday, rumors have been
s countless of new developments said to
tinvolve men prominent in business andl
social life. No confirmation has vet
Ibeen afforded these rumors, but four
-more arrests made to-day have added to
i the cxt iteiment and increased the rumors

transferred to Central, Pirkens County, otin
to-day, and the excitemel't inl this city out:
was slightly diminished in conequence. Gre
Early this mortling Len 'Neely, a bar- thet

At Centril, John Br:dwell, who has erel
been employed by Moore, one of the the
parties in this city arrested yesterday 'T'h(
as driver of the wagoii ttd by the rob- vite
ber-, was capt ured and identified as the ber
man who hauled away the goods stolen gro
from the freight train last Friday niight o'el
when the theives were spotted by the adu
detectives while at work. Fourteen obv
boxes of tobacco included in the Friday wot
nights haul were found secreted tunder wa;
a lot of straw in an old stable where be 1
they had been laced on Sunday night. all
In the store of T. A. Bellotte eighty- I.
four bolts of missing plaids were found, of
and in J. E. Bellotte's establislimen t
another lot of forty-four bolt=. The tan
Messrs. Bellotte readily gave up the tha
goods to the ollicers, saying that they ed
had bought them in good faith. Several
boxes of cigars were idenitiried at other Iib
places, and the eolicers returned to this las
city this afternoon with the prisoner and the
a cargo of reclaimed spoils.
Reports of scattered lots of contra- wit
band goods continue to come in fronm to
p:oints all around, showing that tihe gang acr
has operated on a wide scale atnd atp- Sta
praently with a complete sys:emi of ter
division of labor in the business. It isa5

robbery will reach anywhere tunder 410,- Gr:

CoLuntnIA, April 19.-A meeting of C
the stockholders of the ColumLa, New- ln
berry and Laurens Railroad Company ties
will be held here at 8 p. mn. on Tuesday, the
the 213th inetant, for the purpose of rati
fying thme consolidation whlich has been
arranrged wvith thme Glenn Springs Rail-bi
road. President Barkley and about half
a dozen of the directors of the Orange
burg and Lewiedale Railroad Companyca
came to Columbia to-:lay to meet Presi-ut
deiit 31oseley, of the Columbia, New- A11
berry and Laurenus, to endeavor to ar-bo
range for a consolidation of the two
lines. President Moseley met themi in r
the reading-room of the Hotel Jerome. A 1
They submitted in general terms a prop
osition for a consolidationm and were re- 'j
quested to place it in formal aiid specihic aga
terms for the consideration of the di: ec- ani
tors of the Columbia, Newberry and p)er
Laurens Railroad, at a meeting to be eve
held very soon. This was aull that was wai
done, but it is enioughl to alarm every nig
man who has the advancetment of Colunm- vill
bia at heart. Thme proposed consolida- con
tion means simply this: The Orange- 1oll
burg and Lewiedale Road will run up to e,i;
Prosperity and there utnite with the Co- S
lumba, Newberry and Laturens and Cot
push on to Spartanbtirg. The Columbia, Ian
Newberry andI Lureins Roaid will start fari
from Prosperity, not from Coltumbia. 3
This ei:y will be flanked. It will a p
have its best feeder, Lexington, tray- 300
ersed and alienated by a road running acri
through its centre. Orangeburg antd Icati
Properity will quietly draw away that f roi
trade, wvhich is thme mo:-t implortant to Get
Columbia. &)ur people may ams well plai
raliz.e i:i- at once. The Orangeburg Iacri
and Le*wiedale nianagers are bent on low
this arrangement. It will give them an 3
outlet to the tmountains and miake their fror
road a real trunk line. Columbia is the
rustinig away, waiting for some one to as
san Broad River for her, and give he r a No
bride to the promised land. After C
ionhs of talk she has failed to take the Ion
irst necessary steps to vote a township gra
subsription of MA000O which she must pei

atte:.tion to the fact that the tract was
located near the corner of the three
counties and adijacent to the Air Line

that it be inspected before the board
made its decision.
The boird decided to b.gin theis an

Charleston by steamer on the 10th, and
the trip will occupy about five days.
Mr. Richard Graham, of the State
weather bureau, submitted a report on
the organization and extension of the
service in South Carolina, and made re
commendations for its improvement and
for the inauguration of river observations
at various points.
The board instructed the commission
er to continue the telegraphic weather
reports to stations already established
and to collect information as to the
most practicable points for the es
tablishment of river observation sta
tions, together with the coast of
gauges, and report his findings to the
board at their next meeting. This is
a very important matter to the agricul
turists of the State. The N1ews and Courier
has been making these observations
for Years at its own expense, and they
have proven very valuable. It is peen
liarly a work for the agricultural de
partnent, however, and may be greatly
extended with advantage. The re

The board met at 8 o'clock to-night
