Souie while ago the city council
appointed a committee consisting of
Aldermen Hair, Langford and Thomas
to look into the proposition of widen
ing Main street along the burned
district. - The proposition of the
council is to widen the street ten
feet from the furniture - store of
Kibler, Dennis and Co., to the depot.
Those who own property are Hair
& Havird; St Stephens Lodge of Odd
Fellows, colored; C. J. Purcell; the
Carolina Manufacturing Co.; and
George S. Mower.
Hair and Havird, the Odd Fellows
and Mr. C. J. Purcell have consented
to give the ten feet in order to get
the street widened. Mr. Burton, presi
dent of the Carolina Manufacturing
company says that lie does not feel
that his company is in position to
give this land to the city. Mr. Mower
has not yet given the committee any
It would certainly pay the owners
of this land to have this street widen
ed, because it would make what land
they have left much more valuabld
for business purposes.
Mr. Mower owns nearly one half
of the front, and we hope that lie
will see it as at publiC spirited citizen,
anld if he does not feel that he could
give the land asked, it is hoped that
S0)ome agreemen will be reached by
him and the city coulteil.
While Ithe widenling of this street
will beielfit he pwoperty owners, di
vetly, it will at the same time he of
4 riea t l;benefit t l the ei(V andl no op,

Now is thle time (o widen this street
before tIlose who have tle vacaiit
lots be,-in to Imiluh and1 it should be
done even it the ouniiil has to pay
for tle ten feet. There eliln he littie

ty should he lost to hiNave them widen
t.d1. In, addition, this is ole of the
main streets of the city leadinlg to
the depots of both roads.
If this could be done and then the
street by the ipeia house from the
Crot well Hotel could be opened on
the rear. of this burnt thist ict and ex
liended under the railroads into West
End, a great step forward would be

DAVIDSON OAKS 0 OFF.
Could Not Furnish Q e List- '
Men 'Had- Played For *qey.
Many Peopae Disappointed.
There was considerable di 'sappoint
ment oil Tuesday afternoon whei it <
was learned that the game advertised I
between )avidson and Newberry x
would, not be played . It seenAs that j
the rules of the Southern Intercollege- 1
aite Athletic Association are very t
strict and not only confine the mem
bers of the several teams belonging v
to the association, to regdlar stud- 1
ents of the institution pursuing a
course for a dlegree, but also rule 1
out any student as a member of such ]
team who has played ball during the
summer, not only with pay, but even r
if his expenses are. paid.
'The Davidson team does not belong 1
to the association though it played I
Trinity which belongs to the associa- <
tion, only a few days ago. .It seems x
that the manager of the Newberry t
team wrote to Davidson asking for i
a certified list of the players. That
letter was not received before the i
team left the University. Prof. J. t
M. McConnell, of the faqulty who was t
with the team that came to New'berry,
stated, when asked to give a certi
fied list, that he could not do so,
knowing the rules of the Southern
Intercollogiate Association. He stated t
(hat all of the men who were with :
lini were regular students of David- I
son and were ptirsiing a course Ilad
iig to a degree, that two of them had t
played baIl duriig the summer and I
had received small compensation for I
it, and that lie had no intention of
playing these two men with Newherry,
1111(a lihat lie did not play, them at Trin t
ity. lie had other men on his team, t
however, who had played on summer t
teais durinig the vacation and who
111(1 received Iio compensation except
their evXI)enses, but lider the rules
of ohe association lie couild not eer- f
ify a list even with these mIen on it. 1

afternoon, bloodshed was narrowly
everted. The trouble was caused by
excessive drinking on the part of a
score or two of negroes, who were at
tending a singing meeting.
The ring leaders. who were arrested
soon after the trouble, were spirited
away to Greenville in order to pre.

quickly gathered together on hearing
of the trouble and determined to
mete out summary punishment to the
The trouble was precipitated by i
Il f-drunken negro striking T. L.
Brown, the railroad ticket agent.
D)epnty Myers, who was the only
other white man in sight, went to the
assistance of Brown, and1( they arrest
ed the negro who made the assault.
Immuedliately forty or. fifty negroes,
wowere waiting to take the train,
ran to the scene of trouble and a
dozen or more pistols were dIrawn,
and tihe release of the negro uinder
arrest was demanided and obtained.
Later several other negroes tried
to renew the disturbance, but lby that
time news of the affair had spread
and a mumber of whites from the surm
rounding country had arriv'ed on the
spot all heavily armed. The ring
leaders started to run and several
shots were fired at them by the posse,
but none hit the mark. The negroes
who were placed under -arrest were
hurried to Greenville by Offie'er
Myers, eluding the citizens' posse,
thereby avoiding what may have ter
minated in a bloody scene. Sheriff
Gilreath and his deputies are now
searching for the other negroes wvho
took part in the riot. Quiet has been
restored at Gantt.
