THE C. N. AN! L. It. i.
Completed and Accepte;1 by the Conm i.
inrr A Pewa-ant Trip -Schedtale to
be Put On by First of May.
On Tuesday morning a special train
on the C. N. and L. R. R. reached New
berry a little after 11 o'clock, having on
board the railroad Commrnissioners
whose object was the inspection and
reception of the road front Gary's Lane
to the junction with the G C. and N.
just this side of Clinton. The conple
tion of this road gives Newberry the
advantages of another through con nec
tion to the North. .
The Herald and News is glad it has
beet completed. The building of this
road received the encouragement and
endorsement of this newspaper fron
the inception of the enterprise to its
completion. There were many persons
at the beginning who did not think the
road would ever be built and looked
upon it as only an idle scheme. To Mr.
H. C. Moseley's enterprise and energy
too much credit cannot well be giveni
for the building of this line. He was
its first president and worked hard and
faithfully for the success of the enter
prise. He was aided and encouraged
largely by Rev. J. A. Sligh, Messrs
Geo. S. Mower, and M. A. Carlisle, and
several Columbia gentlemen. Among
the inspecting party on Tnesdahy were
the three commissioners, Duncan Jer
vey, and Thomas; President ('hilds
Engineer Chas. Ellis; Donald Mc
Cume, Agent South Carolina railroad;
at Columbia, C. 0. Little, train dis
patcher; Hon. L. D. Childs; 1r. Wat
son of The State; Mr. Robert Sheely of
Lexington; Rev. J. A. Sligh Mr. H. C.
Moseley and possibly one or two others.
At Newberry the party was joined by
the following gentlemen: Congressmen
George Johnstone, M. A. Carlisle, Geo.
S. Mower, W. H. Wallace, L. W. C.
Blalock, J. J. Lane J. W. Coppock, E.
S. Motte and the Editor of The Herald
The road had already been accepted
by the commissioners as far as Gary's
Lane. From that point the commis
sioners viewed it from the rear of the
coach, and after reaching the junction
they held a short meeting on the side
of the track :nd accepted the road after
ordering a fe,v matters to be attended
to. It is a good road and the commis
sioners were well pleased with it. It
will be opened for traffic and a regular
schedule put on not later than the
first of May.
President Child's and Engineer Ellis
acted as hosts on the trip and made it a
very pleasant run. They are both full
of energy, affable and obliging and
seem to be the right men in the right
places. From the State of yesterdey we
make the following extracts:
THE PROBABLE SCHEDULE.
President Childs stated that the road
would be in full operatioa by the 20th,
or by May 1 at any rate. Full through
connections are to be made with the
North. The probable schedule will be
as follows: Leave Newberry in the
morning at 8, arriving in Columbia at
10 o'clock. Leve Columbia for Clinton
at 11 a. m., arriving there at 1 p. i.
This train will make through connec
tions East and West with all trains on
the G. C. and N. Road. It will meet
both the G., C. and N. trains, inmmedi
ately returning and reaching this city
at 5 p. m. The last train will leave
Columbia at 6 p. m., arriving at New
berry at 8 p. i., As will be seen, these
trains will be run so as to accomodate
through traffic, and at the same time
bring the farmers along the route to
Columbia in the morning to transact all
THE CONNECTIONS TO BE MADE.
The connections to be made by the
road from Clinton were obtained from
Engineer Ellis and are as follows: The
G. C. & N. road is nowv completed as
far as the Savannah River. The road
will now run as far as Portsmouth, Va.
Towards the South it is completed as
far as Elberton, Ga., and next October
the authorities expect to have it flu
ished to the terminus-Atlanta. By
this route it will be much nearer to At
lanta than by any other route. The
points touched going Northward are
given below. The roadh will cross the
Spartanburg and Union at Fish Dam,
the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta
at Chester, and will then proceed to
Monroe, N. C., Weldon and Ports
mouth. Running towards the other
end, Greenville,l Abbeville, Elberton,
Athens, and end in Atlanta, where
connections will be made for the South
THE HISTORY OF THE ROAD.
The construction of the C. N. & L.
Road was originally started by suberip
tions of townships and individuals.
The work of surveying the route was
begun in 1886 by Engineer Charles El
lis, and Mr. H. C. Moseley, of Prosper
ity, was elected the tirst president.
The work dragged along until in the
spring of 1888 the Congaree Construc
tion Company, composed entirely of
Columbia men, however, took charge
of the road, and eighteen months ago
the work was pushed rapidly forward
and the road completed. The road has
cost over 55,000--someth ing over three
quarter's of a million dollars-and all
this is Columbia capital. Mr. Childs
succeeded Mr. Moseley as president in
1889. He says that Engineer Ellis en
tered the company as a stranger and
leaves it standing high in the estima
tion of all the officers. They regard
his work as wonderful.
The State omits the fact that three
Newberry men were members of the
construction company and put in their
proportion of means and work. They
were M. A. Carlisle and Geo. S. Mower
of Newberry and H. C. Moseley of

Mr. Drayton L. HIanm, of the St. Luke

nerits of the machine are simplicity of

About two.years ago and at other
times The Herald and News spoke of
the condition in which our city of the
(lead was kept, and of the impor
tance of doing, something in the way of
improvement. Nothing was done, and
the soughing of the pines and the ran
kle of the weeds are all that greet the
ear, and eye in this silent city of re
pose. The Herald and News does not
like to make any suggestions, but it.
does seeni that something might and
ought to be (lone by which we could
takesome bet ter care of the place where
our dead are buried.
Tlhere is not even a well or a place
where one can get water to put on the
flowers that miay be placed upon the
graves to keep) thbem fresh. If there
could lie concert of actiotn anmong those
who have~ lots ther~e, by which some
onle ~ouild1 be employed to keep the
ground in good condition, the cost to
each one would be very small and the
grounds could he very much improved
in appearance. And a well might be
dug in the corner towards town, at a
small cost, from which water for flow
ers could be obtaitned.
We would like to suggest the advis
ability of those interested in the matter
holding a meeting and forming them
selves into an associat ion for the pur
pose of keeping the grounds and lots in
better condition, but would p)refer that
sotme one else do it. The 1-erald and
News will encourage the matter all in
its power and do whatever it can to
make it a success. The editor feels an
interest in it anid will do all he can.
Will not somie of our lady friends
take hold of this matter? It will suc
ceed if you do.

Prosperity has organized a canning

that point seemis to think he has not

facts in the case for a day or two, we
will give the details in a local. We
cannot thinik that our Prosperity
