The pnblio square mid streets of our
city have been very muddy for the
past week, indeed, almost impassable
for vehicles, but ns it is the reRuit of
necessary improvement-the tilling in
and loveling the publie square and the
excavation necessary to putting in
sewerage pipes-there should be no
unreasonable amount of grumbling.
Tho people should be patient and ?tay
out of tue mud. The sidewalks aro
dry, and the city authorities make a
very successful effort to http the
crossings passable. If there was a
mistake made in using clay to lill in
the square, it was simply un error of
udgment and one not without abun
dant precedent. Clay wit ti a top dress
ing of sand is regarded by many as
the very best combination of earth for
smoothe, permanent highways, and
Tho Intelligencer is not inclined to
que??i?? this theory. Let's try it, ami
should it fail, the taxable property of
tho city will soon justify tho paving ot
tho square with belgian blocks, kean
be dono for about ?7,000.
Tho Mayor's Court Monday morning
presented a scene of unusal activity
and J/ayor Sullivan was forced to
weigh and sift much conflicting testi
mony. There was one case of general
interest. If there is any one thing
moro than another that conduces to
crime and the general violation of law
in a commuuity, it is the congregating
together of idle negroes on Sundays, or
other days, at places remote from tho
regular beats of the police where
gambling becomes the past time. Such
a case was before his Honor Mouday
morning, and the defendants were Au
ma Matt ison, Carrie Dick, Jim Snipes,
John Carlisle, Will Cray ton, Oscar
Cleckley and George Smith, nil ne
groes, and charged with gambling on
the Sabbath. The testimony convinced
(he Mayor that all were guilty, and he
imposed ou enoh a line of $12.50 or '.10
days on the streets. In addition to tho
charge of gambling, tho women, Annie
Matt ison and Carrie Dick, were con
victed of maintaining a disorderly
house and a nuisance and were fined
$5.00 each, or 15 days on the streets,
lt developed during the trial that, at
this Burne house, which is situated near
the northern limits of tho city, at the
close of the gambling scene, one Ernest
Snipes appeared on the scene, accused
George Harrison, one of the negroes
present, of having cursed him'on a
previous occasion, grabbed au axe and
struck him a blow on the head, felling
him to tho ground senseless and then
took to his heels. Harrison was pick
ed up bloody and lifeless and curried
to the drug store, where his wounds
were dressed, and Mondny morning he
was the star witness in tho gambling
case, but Snipes, his would-be assassin,
has not been apprehended.
On Saturday last Mr. William B
Frink and Dr. W. J, Neill, of Chicago,
and Mr. M. Skinner, of Blue Ridge.
Gu., arrived in the city and remained
until Sunday afternoon. These gentle
men are the representatives of the
Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina
Railway Company, which is projected
to be built from Charlestown, Tenn.,
to Anderson . Nothing was given out
to the press for publication, nor was
there any effort made by these gentle
men to meet the representative citi
zens here. The object of their visit
appeared to be to consult with Muj. B.
F. Whitner, as attorney. Enough was
learned, however, to warrant the be
lief that these gentlemen mean busi
ness and have in easy touch the means
to carry their plans into execution, it
was also casually dropped by these
gentlemen that in all probability the
road proposed would be built to Chat
tanooga. Letters in possession of the
Intelligencer, received by representa
tive citizens in thia county from Mr.
Frink, have a very reassuring ring.
They state that the line has all been
gone over twice, and the surveyors aro
now being put in line to begin the
work. It should be gratifying, out by
no means surprising, that Anderson is
being sought as a terminus for a rail
road. The day of votiDga heavy bond
indebtedness to induce roads to come
by way of Anderson is past. Rail
roads, like individuals, are seeking to
enter those sections where the oppor
tunity for profit is greatest. What
they want is freight tonnage, and the
development .n Anderson to the pres
ent time, coupled with the remarkably
bright future which is easily apparent
to a!!, offers inducements which obvi
ates the necessity of bonds or any spe
cial amount of hobnobing. However,
this, ov any other railroad scheme,
based upon business principals, will
meet with the hearty co-operation ol
the business men of AndeiBon.
