FULMBR VS* SOUTHBR.
Arguments In ad Important Case Prom This County Heard by Supreme Court E) Banc. Arguments in the case of Fulmer vs. the Southern Railway Company, suit for danLages in the sum of $1995, were heard by the Supreme Court sitting en banc at Chambers in Columbia on Sat urday., Fulmer, the appellant, was represented by Mr. R. H. Welch, for Johnstone & Welch, and the defeldant respondent by B. L. Abney, Esq., of Cojunibia. No opinion has yet been filed. The e.ase is a very important, one in that the question of the right of at rail way to demand excess of a passenger failing to purchase ticket will be finally decided so far as this State is concerned. The case was heard at the Court of Common Pleas for this county during last year, and a verdict rendered for the railway company. \'esars. Johnstone & Welch, representing the plaintiff, ap pealed. Sam Fulmer, who lives with his mother on the western outskirts of the city, boarded the Southern's passenger train at Prosperity, intending to conic to Newberry. He had been in Prosper ity selling cotton for his mother, and barely had time to catch the train, and therefore did not purchase a ticket. The regular fare from Prosperity is twenty-one cents, three cents per mile, the maximum allowed under the laws of this State. The rule of the railway is that when a passenger fails to pur chase ticket he shall be required to pay an excess of twenty-five cents, to be refunded at his de.tination. Fulm-r had only twenty-one cents in change, the money which he had realized from the sale of his cotton being in a check. The conductor refused the regular fare without the excess and Fulmer was put off the train. The case hinges on the right of a railway to charge excess, to be refund ed at destination, when passenger fails to purchase ticket, the law providing three cents per mile as a maximum charge in this State. Engagement Announced. The following is taken from the social column of the Augusta Chronicle: "The engagement of Miss Kathetine Ashley to Mr. Marcus L. Spearman, is announced the marriage to be solemniz ed, June the 3d, at the Presbyterian church in Trenton, S. C. "Miss Ashley is the charming sister of Mrs. Duncan Jones, and for a num ber of years made Augusta her home, during which time she won by her de lightful personality, many friends. "Mr. Spearmar x, one of Newberry's foremost business men, and will intro duce his bride to a pleasant circle of friends, who will cordially welcome her in their midsL." The followin,1 is from the Trenton, S. C., correspondence of the Augusta Chronicle: "The engagement is announced of Miss Katherine Dunlbar Ashley, of Trenton to Mr. Marcus L. Spearman, of Newberry, S. C., the marriage to occur .June ~3 in the Presbyterian church at noon. Miss Ashley comes from an old aInd honored family in Fairnwell county and is one of the most . Lured wvomen in the State; attractive in person, gifted in mindl, she is a charming acquisition to any circle in wvhich she moves, and N ewberry shoud feel justly p)roud to welcome into her midst one so accom plished. "'Mr. Spearman is deservedlly p)opular '' both. from a business and social stand point, and all will unite in showvering ccn Sgratulations upon him in his approach ng marriage.'' Dr. Cromer in Laurenis. The Laurens corresp)ondent of The State has the following to say of an ad dress delivered by, D)r. George 1B. C'romer before the Laurens city schools on Friday night: President Geo. 13. Cromer of New berry College dleliveredl the annual ad dres at the closing of the city schools last night. before a large audienice. '"Some Educational Needs'' was his top)ic.
