The Seabloarid A ir Linie Scores Another Point
The Seaboard Air Line has, for a
long time, contended that as it could
not get its sleepers south of Atlanta
and north of WVashinrtcn, whllile other
lines were allowed this privilege, it
should, therefore, be allowed a differ
ential rate. This matter wvas taken upl
recently with the Suth eastern Passe n
gcer Associat ion, the Trunk Line Asso
ciation and1( the Association of Virginia
and the Carolinas, and the Seaboard
Air Line's claim for differ-entials was
The tariffs just p)ubliSheCd by the
above associations shiow standard rates
by all lines between the North and
South, as well as the differ-ential rate
via the Seaboar-d Air Line, which rate
is $3 less than that shown by other
lines. T1he standard r-ate between New
York and Atlanta is $2.1; the dilferen
tiail r-ate via the Seaboard Air Line is
$21; the late huetwcen Washington and
Atlanta is $17.50, the dilfercntial rate
via the Seaboard Ait- Line is $i4.50.
Th is di flere-ntiali applies between all
important, cities in the Southeastern
Passenger- Associaton's teritory, the
Trrunk Line Association t.e:'-itoryv.
The Seaboar-d Alt- Line now has the
matter up with the New England P'as
scnger Assoc ation, looking to the puh.
l isin g of these dIifferential raLtes in
their tarti hfs. As sooni as this is grant
ed it, Is understood that the Seaboan-i
Air 1L1n1 will t,ben goto tbe Miss-ssippi
Passenger Association with a request
that they publish like rates from their
terrtitory'. When this Is done the Sear

''he A. O L. Ha Rone Important P'las
Solid TraIs From Charleston to
t Gteenville - Double Daily
It is said that the Atlantic Coast Line
is planning to make some schedulo
changes which will be of benefit to
Charlestou, Columbia and the up coun
ilTe A. C. L. recently obtained
control of the Charleston and
Western Carolina railroad, which is a
mo-t Important -dditIon to an already'
The plan in contemplation includes
the operation of solid trains between
Charleston and Greenville over the
Atlantic Coast Line, Columbia, New
berry and Lauroos, and Western Car-o
Such trains would miake the trip ba
tween those cities in seven hours, or
possibly in less, and they would be
Such trains would be hailed with es
pecial joy by the people of the up coun
try, for it would put them in cllser
touch with the seaboard.
It is said that such a move would
only be the forerunner of the operation
of a double daily train service between
Columbia and Charleston over the At
lantic Coast Line.
At present the Atlantic Coast Line
runs a train from Charl ston to COlum
bia in the morning and back in the
af ernoon. This is a very inconveni
ent chedule for people along its line
who wish to go by it to Charleston, as
it involves staying in that city two
We shall hail the day with delight
when this schedule is inaugurated. We
have long wondered why such a sched
ule was not put, on before this, and now
that the Coast Line has control of all
the roads from Charaeston to Green
ville, there should be as little delay as
possible. With two trains into Colum
bia and two out over the Coast Line it
would be very little trouble to extend
the trains on to Greenville. The night
train would then make close conuec
tion iat Clinton with the trains to and
from Atlanta over the Seaboard. As
it is now tho chedule over the South
crin from here to Atlanta is much pref
eralle to the Seaboard on account of
the long wait at Clinton, going an(]
returning. We hope the Coast Lino
will put on the double trains as here
The Mler-Sisson-Wallaco Co,
One of the cleverest attractions that
will play here this season is the Polk
NI IIler-Oscar Sisson -Ester Wallace Con
binaton. They will appear for one
night only at the Opera House-tomor
row night. Polk Miller, the well
known delineator of negro character,
has joined forces with Oscar P. Sisson
and Miss Ester Wailace, Mr. Sisson's
neico and stage companion. This trio
undoubtedly forms the most unique
combination before the people, and
their performance has made an instant
"hit" whenever produced. The pro
gramme is in three parts and each act
is complete in itself. A ct 1 is a musi
cal comedy sketch by Mr. Sisson and
Miss Wallace, entitled, '"Cousin Ella's
Visit fr'om the Country." Act II in
tr'oduces P olk Millecr with his inimitla
ble stories and songs in negro dialect,
atnd A et 11iI consists of a one-act char
acter' sket.ch in whicb Mr'. Miller' ap
pears in at costume as '"Uncle D)aniel,"'
an old-time platntat,ion negro, who has
gone Nort-h just after the v,ar, and tir
ing or hiis tiepeience is traveling back
to "'Ole Vir'ginny." It, is said to be
very fun tny aind full of quaint hunmor,
songs and striking sit,uations. The at
t,ract,ion is evidently a str'ong one.

P-li1AMBLE, AND IE'SOLUI'ION.
Whereas, TheC present financial dis
