WILL RESUME WORK
AT ANDERSON MILL
WITH MR. HAMMETT
Petitions Presented Asking That
Operations Begin Under Same
Conditions as Formerly.
After being closed down for two
weeks because of a strike of tbs
spinners-and carders, mills No. 1 and
2. Anderson Cotton Mills, will resume
operations next PYluay morning at 6
This decision was made yesterday
afternoon after a petition signed by
the heads of about 102 families was
presented to Mr. Jas. D. Hammett,
president, thc petition declaring that
the signers wanted tho mill to start
up aguln under the same conditions
as existed before thu strike. . Tho
names of tho heads of about 47 fam
ilies, who do not want the mill to
start up under the same conditions as
formerly, were ulso presented.
Yesterday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock
a committee composed of Messrs. ll.
W, Lee, W_ 8. Stone and G. W.
Barrett wenf to soe President Ham
mett at his office and presented to
bim tho two' liBts containing the sig
natures of tito heads of families em
ployed In the mill. This committee
state dthat they had canvassed the
heads of families and that 1C2 of
them wished1 to have t ie mill resume
operations, under. the samo conditions
?as,.formerly.. /prey also explained
that heads of 12 families did not wish
to return to work under the same con
The committee stated that the heads
of about li? families Were out of the
city visiting but that many of these
had expressed their desire to liavo thc
mill resume operations with same
wagea as were formerly paid.
After the lls'.s had been presented,
and the committeemen had madu their
statements, President Hammett spoke
to thezn as follows:
"I understand that you went ahead
and got up this petition voluntarily
of your own accord, and that lt rep
resents th o heads of families. As far
as I am able to understand there are
about 1C2 Meads of families, to which
is to lu .-.ided a number who did not
sign who wa'it to go to v/ork, and
about ?7 heads of families who do
not want to go to work. Now, we are
goingfl to oneil the mill, wc will dis
cuss In a moment with our overseers
as lo the best time to open the mill)
and I want to assure you fellows that
tho people who want to go to work
(except tho few who were not satis
fied ith us and wc arc not satisfied
with them and therefore wo do not
want them at alli will bo permitted
to go to work, thero will bo sufficient
police force here to enable them to
work and anyone Interfering will be
"We are going to opon t?ie mill and
opeh it on thc sninn terms on which
lt waB closed dow. f am going to bc
very fair to you gentlemen as repre
scntatifies of the heads of families
and. say that !t is not of any great fin
ancial benefit to us to run this mill
st the present time, but wo ar - going
to run It In order to give people
I ? '.ujiioym.m who want employment.
. 1 ' there is another strike any time
! i oon I do not. know what osition we
elli take, but our people will not
stand for lt and cannot be blamed for
lt. Our wage scale at Anderson ls
as high as lt ls anywhere -In this
county. We have to Bell our g.. od? in
competition with others who pay their
employees less than wo do and it
is not reasonable to suppose that wo
would pay a higher wage than 'hey
oar!, and we do not pror->se for these
hot-heads to control our affairs.
"The stockholders of this mill who
are the owners of the property elect
certain men to conduct their business
and. these certain mea are going to
conduct the business se. long as they
are in this position, and we do not
propose having a committee come
here and dictate to you and me lust
what we shall do wl.at we shall
not do. As I understand lt this is
satisfactory .to you gentlemen. Now
thia is the only possible way for us
to go back, and If it required aa in
creased wage scale we would not opan
up for ?la. months.
Following the conference with thc
members of the committee represent
ing those who waot to go back to
work President Hammett held a con
ference with J. L. Bobo, overseer of
weaving, li. ?. Aiken, overseer of
carding, C. O. Carter, overseer of
spinning, W. C. Austin, overseer of
OF EPWORTH LEAGUE
'ery Instructive Program Plan
ned By Miss Get ?rude Turner
Was Carried Out.
Thc Epworth league servio,; at St.
John's church last evening was es
pecially instructive. Those who did
not uttend the league certainly miss
ed something which Choy should re
gret. The program was prepared by
Miss Gertrude Turner, 2nd vice-presi
dent of thc league, lt was made very
offectlvto by tho number of readings
which were given. These had beeu
carefully selected by Miss Turner OH
subjects of every day observation, but
still they were full of interest to all
those who are open to enlightenment
on thy conditions that co J front the
The program was:
Miss Gertrude Turner presiding of
Scripture reading, 1 Corinthians
Loading: "Duty of Kindness," by
.Miss Sudie Skelton.
"The Kelicf of Poverty," by W. J.
"Readiness to Give Help," by Victor
The entire program was Instructive,
and all those present feel very grate
ful to Miss Turner for the faithful
service she displayed in getting it up.
One thing about the leaguo to be
regretted is the small attendance.
There always seems to ho sonic con
flicting engagement on thc night that
thc league meets, and numbers who
would vary likely attend these Mou
dry evening meetings ar called else
where. Perhaps this ls due to the
fact that so few people know what a
great benefit can be derived from an
hour spent lu a religious meeting
once each week.

The story of Captain Mason'u "Four
