Washington, D. C., Jan. 6, 1911.
My Dear Mr. Aull: I thank you very
much for your kind editorial on the
address which I delivered at the New
berry chamber of commerce banquet
and am gratified to note your endorse
ment of my views as to the agricultur
al policy that should be pursued by
the farmers of the State.
I note the marked 'paragraph OIL the
first page referring to the darkness
which surrounds the union station In
Newberry, and stating that it is un
derstood the reason the city couincil
did not put a light in Friend street
was that this company objected to a
light being. placed closer than thirty
yards of the track. This is a matter
about which I have no personal knowl
edge, but I am bringing It to the at
fention of Mr. E. H. Coapman, vice
president and general manager of this
company, with a request. that he as
certain the facts and advise me.

Reid had never entirely discontinue
business at Chappells, but he will noi
enlarge his business there and wil
give it his undivided attention.

had a most successful business on ac
count of the fact that the price of coi

as a result farmers from Batesbur
on one side and beyond Cross Hill o:
the other marketed their cotton a

of course that means the spending c
