DEPOT ASSURBD.
mWissioners Heed the Request
wberry for Better Passenger
Depot Facilities.
Messrs. J. B. Wharton and B. L.
aughman, of the Board of Railroad
ommissioners, spent Wednes4ay after
noon in Newberry to confer with City
Council and the Board of Trade in re
ga:d to the request for better passen
ger depot facilitien in the city.
The Commissioners were carried to
to the depot by a committee from the
Board of Trade and the Mayor. After
a careful survey of the situation and
after hearing the requests of the com
tjmittee on behalf of the citizens of New
berry, the Commisioners agreed that
better facilities should be afforded by
the railroads. The Commisioners de
cided to require the C., N. & L. to
erect a new passenger depot opposite
the Southern's.depot, between Friend
and Main streets, and to require that
the two railways erect a covered drive
"way between their two depots. The
lan as contemplated would place the
two depots only several feet apart and
\directly opposite one another, and with
a covered drive-way between, all the
advantages of a union depot would be
secured.
The location proposed for the new C.,
N. & L. depot would place it on the
Southern's land, but it is not thought
that any trouble will arise out of this
fact. At the meeting of the Board of
Trade Wednesday afternoon, the Com
missioners stated that if the Southern
objects they will go ahead and condemn
-the land.
The Southern's depot is of modern
design and was but recently erected.
A new depot on the C., N. &. L. witha
covered drive-way between the two
would afford excellent passenger depot
facilities here, and would not cost a
great deal. The C., N. & L. is sadly
in need of a new depot at all events.
It will be necessary for the C., N. &
L. top raise its track a few feet.
The Commissioners met with the
Board of Trade after their investigation
of the depot facilities, and their atten
tion was called to the fact that New
berry is discriminated against by the
railroads in their freight rates from the
North and also from Charleston and
Columbia going North. The fact was
brought out by Mr. J. A. Blackwelder
that a hundred pounds of freight can be
shipped through Newberry to Columbia
for a good deal less than it can be
shipped straight to Newberry. The
Commissioners said that this fact was
due in a great measure to competition
by water to the points below, but that
they would take the matter up, and if
there is any discrimination they would
use their every endeavor to remedy the
matter.
The Commissioners returned to Co
lumbia Wednesday night.
N r. C. W. Garris, chairman of the
Board, was prevented from being in
NewJerry by other business.

COMMISSIONBRS WANT MONBY.
Council is Powerless to Give it Because
Levy is Already High as it'Is
Allowed-Communications.
COntinuing the correspondence of the
past several weeks, the Chairman of
the Board of Commissioners of Public
Works has forwarded Mayor Earhardt
the letter below, explaining the for
mer demand of the Commissioners for
an appropriation of $1,500 which the
Board claimed was due for the year
1902, and about half of this amount of
$1,500 remaining unpaid for 1901, and
the part of this amount due for the
present year, and alsostating the press
ing necessities of the Board. The reply
of Mayor 14arhanIt, it will be seen, is
simply to the effect that City Council,
under the charter of the town, is pow
erless to act; that the tax levy is al
ready as high as the charter will allow.
Mayor Earhardt was seen by a repre
sentative of The Herald and News yes
terday morning and asked to state the
exact position of himself and his Coun
cil in the matter of the requests made
by the Commissioners and the other
matters contained in the numerous coin
munications which have recently passed
between the two bodies.
Mayor Earhardt was asked why if
the Commissioners need more money
for the maintenance of the public works
undler their control Council does not go
ahead 1nd appropriate the people's
mloIey for the maintenance of the i&b
lie works belonging to the people, or if
the present condition of the town's
finances will not allow, why Council
does not go ahead and raise the levy.
Mayor Harhardt replied that he fully
realized that the City Council is but the
servant of the people, and he believed
it had already proven that it is willing
to obey the people's wishes and is eager
to act for their best interests. We also
realize the position in which the Com
missioners are placed, he said. "But
the remedy is not in our hands. The
charter of the town provides that the
tax levy shall at no time exceed sixty
cents on the one hundred dollars. The
present levy is sixty cents on the one
hundred dollars for ordinary town pur
poses, and was such before the present
administration. That is the way the
matter stands. It is taking all the
ioney which comes into thhe treasury
now, with judicious and economical
management, to run the town's affairs,
and we can't raise the levy, under the
charter of the town."
"What, then, is the remedy?' wias
asked.
"The only remedy, that I see," said
Mayor I3arhardt, "is for the Commis
sioners to have signed a petition, in ac
cor(lance with the law, asking that
Council order an election to issue bonds
for the improvement and extension of
the public works under their control.
The election will then be ordered and
the matter be placed squarely before
the people themselves. In the mean
time. however, we are willing to meet
the Commissioners, as stated in my re
p)ly, and to consult with them andl to
rendler them every aid in our power."'
CoUINCII. PAYS FOR LIGilTS AND) WATER.
"'The general imp)ression seems to be
that the city gets its water and lights
from the Commissioners free of
charge, "' was asked.
'"1 did not know there was such an
impression,'' saidl Mr. 10arhardt, ''but
if there is, it is a mistake. City Coun
cil pays the Commissioners $3413.75 per
month for water and lights for the use
of the city. D)uring my administration
wec have paid for five months $1,618,75.
Mayor Klettner (luring the year 1902
paidl $4,125, and it s0 ap)pears in his p)ub
lished report.''
COMMUNICATION OF COMMISSIONERS.
The communication of the Commis
sioners, addressed to Mayor Earhardt,
followvs:
Newberry, S. C., .June 19, 1903.
'To Mayor J1. W. 0arhardt:
D)ear Sir: -Your' reply of the 18th
inst.., to the request of the Board is re
ceived. Whether it aplpears ont the
minutes of the Council or not, the
grou nd upon whmich the IBoard prtesents
their account against the city for money
unp)aidl, is that (luring the year 1901,
the Board informed t'he Council that
there wasL a p)ressing necessity for the
enlargement of the water works plant.
And to provide funds for' the samfe they
wouIld he obmliged( to increase the rates
for water and lights fun ished the city,
unless-the Council would adlvance some
11ump1 sum for this purpose5. And the
plan agreed uponi wias that, the Council
would furnish $1500.00 for the year's
wvork, the cost. of water and lights re
maining at the sameti price. In con
firmation of which agreement, our
books show that $84l0 of this $1500 was
paidl over t.o outr Board (luring the year
1901. The B3oard having p)ersonally and
by written communication called the at
tention of the Council to the pressing
necessities of the c'ity for an increased
reser've supply of water, for the main
tenance of the health of the city, as
well ats prtop)er f ire p)rote'ction, are con
cornmed to see that your Council dleclines
to act, in tho matter. Especially as now
the sewer dlepartmnent has to be supl
lied with 20,000 gallons of water, each
twenty-four hours, for the automatic
flushing of the sewers besidles the
amun t necessarmi ly usedl in the water
closets.
Anmd under these pressingnieeds of the
city for a large reservoir supply of
w',ater' to guardl against any accident to
the pumpling machinery of the well
which, lhas - oeen working every
night - art of each (lay for six
- ..is necessarily suffering from
e wear'il of c'onstant use.
Thie Bo)ard( would make this reqfuest
of the Council, that your finanen com
mittee meet with the Borrd at an early
date and upon an estimate being made
of the amount of money neccessary for
the improvements that such additionl
levy be added to the tax levy as will
raise the neccessary amount of money.
And the Council then call a meeting of
the citizens, if neccessary to approve
such ietion.
- Respectfully,
JAMIES MCINTOSH1,
W. F. EwART,
C. It. Siummi..'I,
Commisioners of Public Works.
Mayor Earhardt replied' as follows:
Newberry, S. C., June 24, 1903.
To the Commissioners of Public Works,
Newberry, S. C.
Gentlemen: Replying to yours of
the 19th inst., in which you ask us to
raise the tax levy sufliciently to bring
in such an amount of money as will en
able you to make such improvements
or extensions to the water works sys
tem as you may dee nece.-,sary, I bog
to advise you that the tax levy is al-.
ready as high as it can be made.
However, my finance committee will
be pleased to meet with your board at
such time as may be convenient to you.
. Respectfully,
(Signed) JOHN W. EAIRMARDT,

A Card of Thanks.
Editor Herald and News: With your
permission, I want to make an open
acknowledgment to all those wlho have
been so kind to me. A great many of
you will remember that on last Christ
mas evening my dwelling, with almost
the entire contents, was destroyed by
fire. Being a poor man, I wias almost
in a helpless condition. Friends came
to my rescue and placed in my hands
the amount of $11:3.57. In addition
to this, several contributed labor, and
now by their benevolence and generos
ity my family and I are again resting
under my own roof. Waiting until this
late day to render my thanks is no in
dication that I have forgotten the kid
nesses received. I have kept a record of
those who have aided1 me and of their
aid and this record will ever he prized
by me and by my children.
J. D. H. Kinard.
