weeks. Mr. Lever says that the new

get the committee together, owing to
the fact that a great many of them are

Mr. Lever will remain in the State
until the opening of the campaign and
will then return to Washington.
A Gentle Hint..
In our style of climate, with its sudden
changes of temperature,?rain, wind and
sunshine often intermingled in a single
day,?it is no wonder that our children,
friends and relatives are so frequently
taken from us by neglected colds, half the
deaths resulting directly from this cause.
A bottle of Boschee's German Syrup kept
about your home for immediate use will
preven: serious sickness, a large doctor's
bill, and perhaps death, by the ose of three
or four doses. For curing Consumption,
Hemorrhages, Pneumonia. Severe Coughs,
Croup, or any disease of the Throat or
Lungs, its success is simply wonderful as
your druggist will tell you. Get a sample

THE CITY FATHERS.
j At the regular meeting of City
? Council, held Wednesday evening,
j Alderman Schwerin called attention to
I the failure of the Atlantic Coast Line
; railroad company to finish Telephone
; street across Mary street, and suggest
I ed that Telephone street should be
1 continued in a straight line and not
j curved to run into Hauser street,
j Council thought the suggestion a good
one, and, on Alderman Chandler's
motion, the public works committee
were requested to urge upon the A.
C. L. company the importance of
doing this work without further delay.
J. J. Harby, manager of the Sum
ter Electric Light Company, requested
council to pay for the past two months
city lighting in full, or, if they prefer,
deduct what is claimed for lights not
burning and leave the question open
for adjustment.
On motion of Alderman Chandler,
the proposed settlement was ordered,
the clerk to retain $35.90 for lights
which did not burn?it being under
stood that such settlement had no bear
ing upon the Opera House lights and
questioLS in reference thereto now
in use.
Alderman Chandler, for the paving
committee, reported that Mr. Fair
had promised to finish all work, in
cluding the Main and Liberty streets
crossing, this week, but had not sent
his foreman, up to this time, to take
charge, though some material had ar
rived.
Alderman Dick complained of bicy
clists riding on the premises of the
Harvin street passenger station, which
he said was annoying and dangerous
to the crowds of ladies and children
who congregate there. Referred to the
commi tteee of public works.
Alderman Dick called attention to the
need of fire escapes to the'Opera House
and the danger there is of a catas
trophe there at some time in case of
fire while the building has a crowd
in it. The matter was referred to a
committee consisting of Aldermen
Dick, Schwerin and Chandler.
The clerk, was directed to request
A. M. Wallace, of Columbia, to come
to Sumter, at the city's expense for
railroad fare and board one day, to
confer with council in reference to
building artificial stone pavements.
Alderman Chandler moved that Mr.
Fair's offer be accepted to raise the
macadam on Main street, from Liberty
to Republican, at the rate of $60 for
! each 50 linear feet.
Alderman Schwerin thought this
work less important than improving
1 Liberty street from Main to Sumter,
and therefore opposed the resolution.
The resolution prevailed, however,
as council evidently thought this was
a comparatively trivial expenditure
and necessary to complete and preserve
what had been done already at a con
siderable outlay.
The committee on public works was
authorized to call for bids to macad
amize Liberty street from Harvin to
Sumter streets and Main street from
Republican to Canal streets.
The Superintendent of Streets was
directed to construct crossings at
Liberty and Church streets and at
Magnolia and Mill streets.
?n motion of Alderman Schwerin,
the committee of public works was
requested to put in terra cotta drains
at all places where bridges are now
used, as far as can be done?this to be
done at once where repairs are now
needed and in future as repairing be
comes necessary.
A second petition from citizens was
presented, asking that the ditch in
Church street from Haynsworth to
Broad streets be piped and filled up.
Alderman Hurst moved that action
be postponed until report be had from
the finance committee as to the condi
tion of the treasury.
The motion to postpone was not
agreed to.
The request of the petitioners was
then granted?council considering this
a necessary part of the improvements
recently made in Broad street, which
are not complete with the ditch left
open.
Witherspoon Bros. & Co. petitioned
for the privilege of a sidetrack from
the A. C. L. main line into their fac
tory premises, which was granted, and
an ordinance to permit the A. C. L.
company to construct, operate and
remove such track was read and adopt
ed under a resolution dispensing with
the rule which requires two readings.
The ordinance to extend the city
limits to include adjacent cemeteries
was read the second time, adopted and
ordered published.
The clerk presented a letter from
and made a statement at the request
of the Sumter Telephone Manufactur
ing Company setting forth their ground
of objection to paying for water ex
tension and hydrant .recently made to
Telephone street at their request. Ac
tion was deferred until the next meet
ing.
The request of Mrs. E. B. Yinson
for widening Haynsworth street was
referred to the committee on public
works, with power to act, as was also
the suggestion of Alderman Dick that
an effort be made to widen the south
side of Bartlette street at the Episco
pal Church.
The contract for the lease of the
Opera House to Mr. Abe Ryttenberg
and his bond were presented and ap
proved.
The opinion of Lee &, Moise on the
legal status of the city's water contract
with the American Pipe Company was
read. It will be published if permit
ted by the authors.
Aldermen Schwerin and Dick moved
that aei appropriation of 8250 be made
towards the firemen's tournament.
Alderman Boy lo opposed the motion,
on the ground that council has no
legal right or authority to spend pub
lic money on a matter of mere pleas
ure and entertainment. He declared
his friendship for and interest in the
firemen, and said he was willing to
aid them in raising the money by pri
vate subscription. No action was
taken on the proposition.
The report of the managers of the
election held on the 10th inst. for four
members of the City Board of Educa
tion was presented, showing 91 votes
cast in favor of E. C. Han s worth, J.
A. Mood, M. Moise and X^ill O'Don
nell. They were declared elected.
The Chief of Police was authorized
to employ as many special officers dur
ing the firemen's tournament as he
may consider necessary and to provide
ropes to keep back spectators ai*d "
vent accidents.
The following bills against tl(e <-'ir.v
were referred to the finance con*""*"

quest the County Chairmen of the
State to ask the Democrratic citizens
of the cities and towns to entertain
at their private residences the candi
dates for State and Congressional offi
ces when they go to their places to ad
dress the people." The letter gave as
a reason thai many of the candidates
