TATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA
n the matter of the
^tition of the citizens
f Edgefield county for
nnexation to Green
wood county, called ORDER
ometimes the cut off
if Plum J ?ranch to
Greenwood county. ,
In this matter, His Excellency,
IL F. Ansel, Governor of the state
)f South Carolina, on the 18th day
)f November, 1910, filed an execu
tive order in which he declared,
imong other things, that a petition
aad been filed in his office on the
25th day of July, 1910, by certaiu
electors, asking to have called an
election on the question of annexing
certain portion of Edgefield, county
to Greenwood county; that commis
sioners were appointed by him to
ascertain and report whether the al
legations of the petition were true
and if the constitutional require
ments in such cases had been com
plied with; that the commissioners,
made and reported to him that all
of the constitutional requirements
had been complied with; but that
he refused to order an election for
said annexation of said territory to
Greenwood county because there
was pending in his office before the
said date, a petition by certain
qualified electors fo/ Edgefield and
Aiken counties, asking for an elec
tion upon the question of forming
a new county, and he stayed the
election for said annexation for
said reason, among others, that the
matter should be held up until the
coming in of the report of the com
missioners of the proposed new
county from the portion of Aiken
and Edgefield counties.
Inasmuch as the report of the
commission of this proposed new
county has come in before His Ex
cellency, Governor Ansel; and, inas
much as he ordered an election in
said territory, the order and procla
mation for said election has been
set aside by me for reasons stated
in my order on the subject;
Now, therefore, as it appears that
all of the constitutional require
ments for the annexation of the
said territory from Edgefield coun
ty to Greenwood county have been
complied with, and the reasons
stated by Gov. Ansel are out of the
way for delaying the matter any
longer, on motion of S. H. McGhee,
Esq., attorney for the annexation,
it is ordered that an election be held
in said territory of Edgefield coun
ty on the question of annexation to
Greenwood county, according to
law, on the eleventh day of April
A. D. 1911, and a proclamation to
said effect will be issued[io the_com
