ADDERSON DAY AT TIM: EXPOSITION.
(iou. Averill Visits Anderson arni
Addresses a .Mass Meeting.
Col. J. II. Averill, the popular and
energetic Director General of the
South Carolina lnter-Statc and West
Indian Exposition, accompanied hy
his daughter, arrived in Anderson last
Wednesday in his private car and re
mained in the city until Friday morn
ing as the guest of his brother-in-law,
W. I\ Marshall. He came here in
the interest of thc Exposition and to
arouse the interest of our j>coplc in
the success of thc great enterprise, of
which he was one of thc original pro
jectors. The general met many of
our leadiug citizens during his stay
here, and be succeeded in arousing
eonsiderable interest in thc Exposi
A mass meeting was held in the
Court 1 louse Thursday evening at S
o'clock, and it was attended by both
ladies and gentlemen. Maj. B. F.
Whitner presided over the meeting,
and, in a few appropriate remarks, in
troduced Col. Averill, who spoke in
substance as follows:
It affords mc pleasure to address an
Anderson audience, especially on a
subject that should be of interest to
every citizen of all sections of South
Looking back to the last ten years
of the 19tb century wc see how in
1SD? a small town, of not over 2,500
population and tho march of improve
ment just started. How has that
march progressed? Today I find a
city of 8,00U, and thc march of im
provement still going onward and up
ward with the evident intention of be
fore the first ten years of the 20th
century have passed of rankiug side
by sido with tho other cities of the
Piedmont. Your mills, your court
house, your other improvements all
show on what solid lines your work
been done. These improvements, these
developments have not been alono
confined to Anderson and its County
-the entiro Piedmont section of the
State have been in the same marching
column, and the opening of tho new
century found practically a uow State,
a manufacturing State, extending
down to tho Capitol City, and thc de
velopment of new industries was so
rapid that the attention of capital
throughout all trade centers was at
tracted to South Carolina.
The people of tho lower Counties
and of the city of Charleston watched
with deep interest this new growth,
and in many cases joined with you in
furnishing the capital necessary to
carry them through and at the same
time began to consider what they
could do to place their seotions on thc
same footing with you. It was soon
recognized ns an indisputable fact
that South Carolina's futuro possibil
ities did not entirely depend on cot
ton factories, that with its innumera
ble resources other industries could bo
established in all sections of tho State
that would be paying investments;
that what was most necessary was
to bring these industries, resources
and possibilities to tho attention of
the country at large.
Charleston had, to a very largo ex
tent, in consequence of political and
other and more important difficulties,
become to a certain extent separated
from the Piedmont Bection. The Yir
giEia*and other cities, through rail
road changes and otherwise, had se
cured your trade. Charleston mer
. chants considered the situation care
fully and, as a result, projected an
Exposition, at which it was hoped
every County in the State would be
?represented by creditable exhibits of
their industries and resources and the
[people of the entiro State could meet
on common ground and freely disouss
all matters of mutual interest.
As you know^the project was
.launched. The State Legislature ful
ly endorsed it and by its aid South
Carolina has made a representation
there whioh I unhesitatingly say has
never before been excelled by any
State at an Exposition.
The exhibits there shown by the
State and tho fourteen Counties rep
resented are attracting attention from
the visitors from the North and West,
and many inquiries are being constant
ly made in regard to soil, timber, min
As to the Exposition generally.
Will it repay you to visit it? I would
leave the general answer to bo made
by those of Anderson who have visi
ted it and accept their verdict.
The citizens of the North and
West arc visiting it in large numbers,
and many who come from distant
States ask why it is that South Caro
lina is not better represented iu point
That is the question I want, to ask
of Anderson citizens here tonight.
We have an Exposition, not sectional
in character to thu slightest degree.
It is of and for the entire State.
I realize that thc?e ha: been obsta
cles iu the way of your visiting it.
The unprecedented cold winter that
we have just passed through, thc
scarcity of money from thc loss of
crops and no doubt other reasons, but
my friends, speaking as a Carolinian,
one interested in the welfare of the
entire State, I would say to ali, not
only those in this h-W but to every
citizen of the County, it is thc oppor
tunity of your life and none who go
will ever regret tho visit.
You will lind many objects of intei
OEt that are both attractive and in
The marchant will Bee the articles
of .nlde/nnd commerce in every line
brought from far distant Alaska to
Maine and from the Lakes to Florida j
and the West Indies.
Tho farmer will find much in his j
linc that will ho new to him, and after
viewing tin; grass garden of the Uni
ted States Government where speci
mens of all forage crops that can bc
raised in thc hf tate can be seen, and
then inspecting the exhibit.1- in thc
agricultural department ot' the Gov
ernment, will not regret thc trip.
Tiie investor seeking information as
to new industries that can bc develop

Thc mechanic ca? find much of an
instructive nature to consume his
time and repay him for the ti ip.
In referring to the ladies, I am at a
loss where to begin, as there is .^o
much they will want to see and so
much that will bc of passing interest
to them. In thc South Carolina
Building they will, I assume, give
special consideration to what their
daughters are doing at Winthrop and
Converse, as shown by the exhibits of
those institutions. They will stop in
the exhibits of the Agricultural De
partment and give a "careful study to
the methods and appliances, the pro
ducts and by-products of the modern
dairy. Every housekeeper in Ander
son County will be greatly interested
The manners and customs of the
women in the Philippine Islands, the
products ol' their looms as shown in
thc Philippine exhibits in the Cotton
Palace will repay a careful examina
Vou will find much to attract your
attention in thc Commerce Building,
and when you reach the Woman's
Building and have gone through the
various rooms and booths, you will, I
think, say that the best has been saved
for the last, and will join in thc uni
versal verdict that the women of South
Carolina have done their part, and
done it well.
What shall I say to tho teacher and
student ? There is no bettor educator
to both teacher and scholar than a vis
it to a creditable Exposition, and if
trustees and teachers have to call off
from regular school hours for three or
four days to enable their schools to
visit tiie Exposition ic is not time lost.
Let mu take you for a hurried trip
through the Exposition and mention a
few of tho exhibits from which the
teacher and student can in more ways
than one be benefited. Paying your
respects first to thc South Carolina
building, and, entering from the north
door, you will fir.-t examine thc rice
products as there displayed in thc pa
goda. Clemson and Winthrop both
have exhibits in this building that
will repay an inspection, Before pass
ing from the State Buildiug, teacher,
stop your students at thc south "door,
let them view, if only for a moment,
the State records there shown, ami
probably for thc first time see the flags
that South Carolinians followed ou s<y
many bloody battle fields.
The governmem exhibits should be
seen next, and.first in order as they
come are those of the War Department.
Hore will be seen tho arms used from
the earliest period of tho discovery of
gun powder down to the present day,
besides many other attractive and in
structive features. Pass on to thc navy
exhibit, considering tho part played by
tho navy in tho rctent war with Spain,
and horo are to ho seen exact models
of every ship that, in Manilla Bay and
at Santiago, brought tho American
Navy so prominently before the na
tions of tho world.
The Postoffice exhibits adjoin the
Navy. Here you can bo carried back
to the 18th Century and seo tho prim
itive moans of conveying the mails,
and will be enabled to follow up tho
changes and improvements inaugura
ted in tho service down to the present
The next exhibit of importance is
that of thc Agricultural Department.
To the teacher I would say many of
your scholars are, I assume, farmers'
children. Do not hurry them through
this exhibit. Let them study it well.
I know some of them will say practice
in farming is better than theory. That
may be so. I am not a farmer. There
are, however, many lessons of profit to
he learned here.
In the Cotton Palace, the next
building you will enter, there is much
of interest to be seen. Do not fail,
howevar, to examine the exhibits of
Illinois and Missouri. The farmer's
son or daughter may some day profit
by what they seo here. Tho Philip
pine exhibit is in this building. You
will want to study it carefully, remem
bering those Islands aro now of our
own country. In tho gallery of this
building aro thc educational exhibits.
See them by all means.
In going around the Court of Pala
ces you next enter tho exhibits of tho
Treasury Department of the Govern
ment. Here will be found many use
ful and instructive exhibits. When
you have examined them all you will
next enter the Slate Department, and
the student of history can be enter
tained in viewing the many dooumeuts
and other relics pertaining to thc his
tory of our country, and of our con
nections with other governments. Xow
we are at the Smithsonian Institute
and National Museum. Hore the stu
dent of history and geography will bc

spend in the examination of the many
In tho Interior Department which is
thc next to be .seen, are many exhibits
that will specially interest the student
of a mechanical turn, as well ns exhib
its of interest to all.
I fear that to tell of thc exhibits in
the Commerce, Mineral, Forestry and
Machinery buildings will consume too.
much time and will tire you. So,
leaving them for your own inspection,
1 pass on to i he Fisheries Building,
where is to be seen the exhibits of tho
I riiited States Fish Commission.
These exhibits need no recommenda
tion to induce you to visit them. Ev
ery visitor to the Exposition goes to
this building, and none leave it disap
pointed. Lot every teacher and stu
dent see them.
Go to the Philadelphia building and
view the old Liberty Bell, then pass
on to the Midway. Here will bo found
many attractions both instructive and
amusing. The Esquimo Village, fair
Japan, tho Streets of Cairo, the An
ima] Show, the Cyclorama, thc horse, I
"Jim Key." will all prove instruct- '
Now, ladies and gentlemen of Au- !
der son, what will you do? Will you j
come down and seo thc Exposition und
bring your children? T leave our case
ii; your hand.-, llememher it is tho
State's Exposition and you are a part
ol' it. It is to be regretted that a
County as rich in natural resources as
Anderson did not there show to the
country its industries, resources and
possibilities. That opportunity has
passed lt is not, however, too late
to show that you are in line with,what
has been done, and to come down en
masse and show that you are with us.
At the conclusion of his address
Col. Averill announced that ho had
received a telegram that afternoon in
forming him that the Southern Kail
way would make a rate of ?3 or $3.50
for the rouud trip from Audersou,
limited to five days, and run a special
train from herc through to Charleston

exercises of "Anderson Pay."
On motion, Chairman Whitner was
authorized to appoint a commiltee at
his leisure to lix a date for "Anderson
County Day" with the Exposition ua
thoritics and to make all other neces
sary arrangements. Thc mass meet
