away at a hospital in Columbia,
where he was carred about a week
before for treatment. Fof about two
years he has been in declining

Failicg to iniprove after constantly
receiving the closest attention, he
was carried to Columbia for special

ly declined.
Mr. Jones was in his 60th year.

in Mr. Foreacre's private car called
on ino and asked for a hearing on
the matters as contained in my let
ter above.
The following gentlemen were
present in behalf of Edgetield, Mr.
Loyic Minis, Air. E. J. Mims, Mr.
L. S. Kernagrhan, Mr. M. A. Taylor
and myself. Mr. Forcacre as spokes
man for the railroad explained very
satisfactory as to the connection at
Trenton with "No. 31 from the
north, that he was forced to keep
an extra eugine in or near Aiken to
protect the tourist travel in case of
failure of regular eugine ou Aiken
and Edgetield branch, and to take
up immediate connection with this
train to Edgetield, would impose
hardship, and extra expeuse," not
justified by the travel.
As ',o our train No. 110 arriving
Edgetield at 3 p. m., which has
been caused by freight work be
tween Alkea and Tieuton, he as
sured us that this practice would be
stopped, aud that this train would
arrive as near on time as possible
in the future.
As to the freight from Augusta,
he also adjusted this matter very
satisfacen b^- promising tnat
freight loaded lil Augusta ou or be
fore 5 o'clock p. m.,* would reach
Edgetield by our 9:40 train the fol
lowing morning, making delivery
to the merchants tn less lhau f?\
hours, against from 3? to 48 hour*
in the past. This is qui?e au im
provement iu freight service, and
will make it possible for our mer
chants'tb receive cold storage or
perishable products by freight in
stead of the additional expense of
expressing this separately.
Mr. Foreacre, as spokesman for
the railroad, talked very interesting
ly along the line of service and the
desire of the Company to adjust any
aud all differences of the patrons
and the road. When asked as regards
to the possibility of inducing, the
?outhein railroad to extend line to
Greenwood, he said the policy of
the Southern at present io to im
prove their holdings and not to
make any extentions until their
present holdings were up to a
standard. He compared the rail
road business with a general store.
The store has many things to sell,
while the railroad had only one
thing tc seli, that was SERVICE.
He and Mr. McGhee talked very
interestingly as to the possibility of
Edgetield inducing new settlers into
the county, as well as. having a cli
mate equal to Aiken for the winter
