opposing the annexation claimed
that Lee came under the desig?
nation of "old county" and as such

held that Lee County was what Is

FREIGHT RECEIPTS INCREASED.
Cotton Shipments as Large as for
I-ast Year at Tills Time?Increase
in Other Ruatne**.
It was learned at the railroad
freight depots in this city Monday
, that the freight receipts of this fall
up to the present time were very
' much larger than they were last
J year at the same time. This is a
good showing for Sumter, and it
marks a larger amount of business
done here this than last year.
It was stated that the amount of
cotton hlpments was practically as
large as it was at this time last year,
owing to the fact that last >ear the
cotton, although more of it was com?
ing in at this time than is coming in
now, was not shipped out as speed?
ily as it is being shipped out this
The increase in freight receipts for
this fall Is partly attributed to the
number of buildings in course of con?
struction, which require a consider?
able amount of material, but for tho
most part it is regarded as an Increase
of business being done here.
