Bumter. To this amount was added
the list of all old members who had

Improvements on its freight and pas?
senger yards. At present numerous
changes are being made nt various j
places on the yard, which, when
completed, will give Sumter as good
i freight .md passenger yard as any
in tin- state, ?
Tin- work now under way has been
let out by the railroad to Mr. B. J.
Bchabelltz, who boasts of being the
youngest contractor doing railroad
work In this pari of th<- country. Mr.
Schabellts is now installing a cinder
pit. and a new turn table, at B point
between the present coal chute and
the Rowland Bugg) company building,
stund pipes for watering engines at
the pass, riper station yard, and a wa?
ter tank just In the rear of where the
water tank now stands near Harvln
street crossing. Besides these im?
provements Mr. Schah? lltx will erect
a new coal chute near the turn table
and cinder pit and will make other
improvements of the same nature in
the yard which are a part of his con?
tract secured from the railroad com?
Monday morning an engine was be?
ing set up at the place where the
work on the turn table was In prog?
ress. This engine will be used in
driving piles into the ground here as
a foundation for the structure which
Mr. Bhabellts expects to make very
secure. This la probably the first
time in the history of Sumter that
piles have been driven In the ground
for the foundation of any structure
in the city, something very unique in J
the history of building operations in j
Sumter. The foundations of all of
the structures will be of concrete and
the work on a number of them is well
under way now, and with no back
sets will be completed in the next
forty days. The work was com?
menced last week and has been
pushed forward with a full force of
hands since it was begun.
Mr. Schabelltz brought with him to
Sumter a force of some twenty Ital?
ian laborers who have been doing
most of the work up to last Saturday,
when they decided that they were not
getting enough pay and struck for
higher wages. Monday morning Mr.
Schabelitz stated that there was noth?
ing to say on the subject of the strike,
as he had prety near as full a force
of hands then as he had had pre?
viously with the Italians. He told
them if they did not want to work
for what hw was paying them they
could leave and this they did. Satur?
day afternoon they left for Wilming?
ton, where many of them have homes
and run small truck farms. Twelve
of them left in the strike and five were
left here who decided to go on with
the work. Negroes were employed
in the place of the deserting Italians,
although Mr. Schabelitz stated that
they did not work so well as did the
Italians, out of whom he had gotten
good service while they were at
work. There are nearly fifty men in
the force employed In the various
operations at different places on the
yard, most of this force being com?
posed of local men, although all of
the foremen and engineers are men
who have worked elsewhere with Mr.
Schabelitz. The Italians while here
had hired a residence in the western
part of the city and all seventeen of
them lived together, keeping a kind of
bachelor's hall, as it were.
Mr. Schelditz has attracted much at?
tention to himself on the street, as he
is always followed by a hugv Dane?
a dog as large In frame as any which
has ever been seen in Sumter. This
is Mr. BchabelltS'8 pet, though to the
ordinary spectator it appears a fearful
kind of pet. Mr. Schabelitz Is of
Swiss nationality and has been in this
country only six years, but he knows
