Wednesday, Nov. 27, 1907. t Improved Seliednle. Tbe readers of tbe Press and BAUDer are familiar with tbe controversy that bas been In progreas with tbe railroad authorities, over } tbe acbeduted delay in meeting trains on tbe main line. Congressman Aiken aDd Mayor IMcMlllan have been laboring In season and ont of season, publicly and privately, to have this great Inconvenience, If notdlsooartesy to Tho whole DroDoaltlon AUUCViliCf ? ? was laid before tbe Railroad Commission _ If any official action was taken on It nothing was beard of It In these parts. One member of tbe Commission took tbe matter np wltb " Superintendent Simpson, and sent onr people a statement from blm indicating tbat tbe i I reasonable requests made by tbe people of , Abbeville could not be compiled wltb. It . seems tbat this waa to be conolnslve of the whole matter. Tbe letters of Commissioner Cangbman and Superintendent Simpson were published In tbe Press and Banner. In tbe Columbia Record of the 5tb Instant, there was a communication reiterating reasons why tbe people of Abbeville could not bb relieved of tbe tiresome wait of an hour In making connections wltb tbe main line. This communication/ was so full of Inaccuracies and tbe reasons were so palpably j7 flimsy tbat Congressman Aiken* replied to it g In an open letter to tbe Record. His reply Is printed In this paper last week. Tbe Press and Banner Is bappy to report 7 tbat, replying to Mr. Aiken's open letter, . Superintendent Simpson has given most ' latlnfuotory assurances tbat tbe His complained ol will be speedily rlgbted. The people of Abbeville are glad to take tbe Superintendent's band end accept In ? good'fallb bis assurances of fair dealing. It r Is a matter for congratulation tbat these men who have Interested themselves In rlgbtlng ) our wrongs, have brought about a better understanding of the mutual Interests of this people and of tbe road. So tnuob are we Impressed with Mr. Simp* son's letter of November tbe 16tb that we have conofuded to print It lo toll. *MR. SIMPSON'S LETTER. Colombia, 8. C., Nov. 15, 1907. . Hon. Wyatt Aiken, >. I Ab evlue, 8. C. I Dear Sir: I beg to acknowledge receiptor I your letter of November 11th making aooiber I kick about conditions at Abbeville, I am surprised to learn ibat there wait not a time table at the depot at Abbeville; one whs certainly sent there, and lot your personsl hiformation, I am enclosing a table showing time of all passenger trains no tbe tymem. , Noting the tbirtl paragraph of your letter, I am oertamly surprised to hear that you were r advised that Abbeville bad do rales on hoooudI of \ugu?ta Reunion. For your lnroi matloD, I am neDillngyou acopv of Passenger a Traffic DMpartment's Circular No. MJ85 lH?ue'l October 8Ut. 1907, whlob you will note Is ad1 dressed to Ticket Agents at points nam^d below.

Iam pleased to say to you that effective oext Sunday, tbe 24th, the time of trains 16 and 11 will be changed In order for them to ' meet at Hodgen. whereas, now as you know, there Is a difference of lorty-flve minutes. This, I think von win agree, la .quite an Improvement. No. 15 win arrive at Hodges at 11:08 and No. 18 at 11:35 being only a dlBerence of twenty-seven minutes, whereas, now It Is forty-two mlnutea.

I will certainly be glad when I oan believe e that your mind la dlaabuaed ofany Ideas tbat , I am discriminating against Abbeville or a tbat I encourage or desire that tbla be done, a Believe me when I tell you that my greateat a. ambition ia to pleaae the people of Abbeville, , and all of the line wbiob I represent.

Bat tbe same rule does not apply to these games. Negroes Btake their nlcklea on "oraps" and, when caught, are fined or set io a work on tbe;streeta. When "bridge" la played the players get their names In tbe newspapers.
