The first business transacted in
court ' Friday was the granting
of naturalization papers to three citi
cene of Greece, who, after having
resided in this country f?r a number,
of years, have decided to become
American citizens. They formally re
nounced allegiance to King George
and the government of Greece and

THE TELEPHONE QUESTION,
The City Council was called together
Wednesday by request to consider the
application of the Southern Eell Tele
phone Company for a franchise to
establish a telephone exchange in this
city. The application was accompa
nied by a numerously signed petition
from citizens, requesting that the
application be granted.. The matter
was, however, not settled, as a full
meeting of Council could not be had,
owing to the absence of Alderman G.
F. Epperson, and also because it was
desired to have present at the meeting
a representative of the Sumter Tele
phone Company, to the end that there
might be a full and free discussion of
the whole question.
It was decided to postpone consider
ation of the application for the
franchise until the meeting of council
