PEOPLE PASSED THROUGH
EN ROUTE HOME
WAS GREAT MEET
And From Reports Several States
Were Represented-Is Against
IT reports be ttue, Tbankery was
wrong when he auld: "My lord would
ride twenty ml'.-"'.to ?oe
a main fought," for many of those
who gathered at a well known sta
tion on the C. & W. C. on Tuesdiy
traveled more than "twenty miles."
Karly yesterday morning nome of
thc business men of Anderson were
attracted by an automobile that had
a York courtly '?umber on it. S?.i'u
of tiiie men who gathered around be
gan to think that they had met up
with a fishing party and that if they
talked in tho right way, they might
be? given a meBs of fresh fish. How
ever, their hope? ware aoon shatter
ed, for a game rooster, one wtoich
perhaps bad! been successful in the
fight, began to crow, and the by
standers then discovered that it wa?
not ;f?Hh In tho bags along the run
ning board ot tho car but gamecocks.
"Where was the cock fight?" was
a question asked one of the men In
", it wns down at a station sev
eral miles below Anderson," was t'.'.e
"Many people there?" waa the next
"About 400 I believe," was- the an
swer, "many of them coming from
distant states. There were a few
from Texas. You see we had a kind
nf Int?FBt??e cock fight at this main,
and there woro people from oil ovor
tho country. The cocks were put tn
a pit and they did some manly fight
ing. I forget now whtcli state won,
but I do know that some very vnlua
abU,. fighting cocks were killed."
"How about D'w> sheriff of that par
ticular county, was he there?"
"No, but there were plenty others
there,' replied the visitor.
Judging from the accounts of visi
tors from stations below Anderson
yesterday that was some cock fight
pulled off between here and Augusta
Tuesday. The visitors stated that
people had been passing their house
mr two days previous to the flgVH.
some in automobiles, some tn buggies
and some walking. They stated that
the people seemed to be having the
time of their lives, and that thero
was much hilarity.
Several years ago the state legisla
ture passed an act making it unlaw
ful for cock fights to be held in South
Carolina, and doubtless someone was
not on the Job on Tuesday, else some
'ttalng would have been done with
those who were so instrumental in
having'the fight pulled, off.
