TXAT RAIL ROAD MEETING.
Pursuant to notice some of the
stockholders of the Easley and
Pickons railroad met Saturday in
the office of the Clerk of the
Court. The JOURNAL representa
tive was not present at the open
ing of the meeting and cannot
say whether it was opened with
prayer or not, anyhow President J.
E. Boggs had the floor and was
talking out in meeting. Aftor mak
ing substantially the same propo
sition which was recently publish
ed in the county papers, ho went
on to elucidate it in a very calm
and oonfident manner. He said
among other things that an in
pression was out that there was
some speculation in viow' in re
gard to his proposition. He dis
claimed any knowledge or inten
tion to that effect, but that he was
out $1,100 in monoy for hotel bill,
railroad fares, etc., in making
trips for the railroad company and
He spoke clearly and olaborato
ly about the propsed bond of in
demnity, to be signed by citizen
addressed some time ago in his
open letter through tho county
press and admitted the improba
bility of an effort to stay by in
3unction the issue of the townshil
bonds, as a heavy bond wou<
be necessary in such a case, an
the township bonds would have t
be issued if the railroad was buil
according to oontraet. He said the
he could not afford to take th
risk, whiek waLs the contingenc
of a lawsuit on the issue of tli
He said that J. I. Boggs andi
3'. Grandy were the survivin
members of the railroad construt
tion company. That the constru<
tion company was in possession<
the first mortgg bonds on tli
railroad, amounting to $63,00
which had been in the possessio
of Mr. Lekhart, and that it too
P8000 to clear up the Burkhialti
claim. The $68,000 mortgage bon
will coot the railroad companflh
P8000 and not a cent outside <
that was necessary.
He explained that all mot an
cancelled the origin al contract wit
Mr. Burkhalter and authorized thI
first mortgage bonds, that 1i
Burkhalter then owned a majorit
of* the stock, having 380 sharoi
He maid that he would turn ovc
the $63,000 in first mortgage bond
for $3,000 in township bends
Whether that was done or not, h
would continue to work for th
sompletion of the railroad. H
Itated that he had had most care
n1l estimates of the expenses ani
ncome from operating the road
'bd the largest put the expense
ait $8000 per annum andthe incom
it $5,000, making a clear p)rofit ti
the operators of $2,000 a year.
Thie object of the meeting wa
M get signers to th~e bond of o
ndemnity. That when the mon
ny was due and it had to come ii
uould be ruinous to him anp if,it
hat event the issue of bonds wai
lelayed, unless he was protected
>y the bond.
In answer to 0. E. Robinson's
Loestion, he said the construction
:ompany. would get the profits of
'perating the railroad, but could
iot better afford to take the risk of
he contingency of a lawsuit, than
itizens interested in the building
-i' the railzoad.
Ho said he Was willing, in case
he signers had to pay anything,
6 4,rn the road over to them and
hithem own it. He said he was
say anyway. So nothing being

Noah Webster, many years ago,
assorted that the tendency of our
language toward simplicity in its
orthography should be sedulous
ly cultivated; and ho illustrated
his belief in this sentiment by in
corporating in his dictionary the
simple terminations or, ic, or, etc.,
in place of our, ick, ro, etc., be
sides many other changes which
did not follow definite rules. (One
needs only to go over to our pub
lic library to find magazines pub
lished ip the '50's giving such
words as honour, musick and con
tre.) Since the days of Webster
other changes have gradually been
made, and we may now have the
satisfaction of knowing that our
American orthography is simpler,
bettor and more forceful than that
used in Great Britain.
If, by simplifying our spelling,
we can save time and money,
make easier the progress of our
children in education, and accom
phsh imore work in a given time
than by the old system, then a re
form is certainly wise. Tho new
spelling proposed at the session of
the National Editorial Associatior
is, indeed the "thin wedge" which
in time, will prepare tho way foi
more radical reform, so that oui
children's children, if not oul
