FULMBR VS* SOUTHBR.
Arguments In ad Important Case Prom
This County Heard by Supreme Court
Arguments in the case of Fulmer vs.
the Southern Railway Company, suit for
danLages in the sum of $1995, were
heard by the Supreme Court sitting en
banc at Chambers in Columbia on Sat
urday., Fulmer, the appellant, was
represented by Mr. R. H. Welch, for
Johnstone & Welch, and the defeldant
respondent by B. L. Abney, Esq., of
Cojunibia. No opinion has yet been
The e.ase is a very important, one in
that the question of the right of at rail
way to demand excess of a passenger
failing to purchase ticket will be finally
decided so far as this State is concerned.
The case was heard at the Court of
Common Pleas for this county during
last year, and a verdict rendered for the
railway company. \'esars. Johnstone
& Welch, representing the plaintiff, ap
Sam Fulmer, who lives with his
mother on the western outskirts of the
city, boarded the Southern's passenger
train at Prosperity, intending to conic
to Newberry. He had been in Prosper
ity selling cotton for his mother, and
barely had time to catch the train, and
therefore did not purchase a ticket.
The regular fare from Prosperity is
twenty-one cents, three cents per mile,
the maximum allowed under the laws
of this State. The rule of the railway
is that when a passenger fails to pur
chase ticket he shall be required to pay
an excess of twenty-five cents, to be
refunded at his de.tination. Fulm-r
had only twenty-one cents in change,
the money which he had realized from
the sale of his cotton being in a check.
The conductor refused the regular fare
without the excess and Fulmer was put
off the train.
The case hinges on the right of a
railway to charge excess, to be refund
ed at destination, when passenger fails
to purchase ticket, the law providing
three cents per mile as a maximum
charge in this State.
The following is taken from the social
column of the Augusta Chronicle:
"The engagement of Miss Kathetine
Ashley to Mr. Marcus L. Spearman, is
announced the marriage to be solemniz
ed, June the 3d, at the Presbyterian
church in Trenton, S. C.
"Miss Ashley is the charming sister
of Mrs. Duncan Jones, and for a num
ber of years made Augusta her home,
during which time she won by her de
lightful personality, many friends.
"Mr. Spearmar x, one of Newberry's
foremost business men, and will intro
duce his bride to a pleasant circle of
friends, who will cordially welcome her
in their midsL."
The followin,1 is from the Trenton, S.
C., correspondence of the Augusta

Miss Katherine Dunlbar Ashley, of
