WEDNESDAY, FEB. 18, UKW.
A Terrific Storm of Wind and Rain.
Tho city of Anderson was in the edge
of n cyclone at o'clock Monday af
ternoon, and by 8 o'clock in tho even
ing a blizzard had set in which has
wrapped the country in a sheet of ice.
Tho lirst caine with torrent? of rain,
approaching almost to a cloudburst,
and with a velocity of wind that arous
ed apprehensions throughout tho city.
In less than an hour, however, tho
wind lulled, tho rain ceased almost en
tirely, ho damage in the city was re
ported and tho fright ol' tho people
Information soon reached tin-city,
however, that a terrific cyclone hud
just passed through Honra I'ath, hill
ing several and razing a number of
houses. Concerning this thc following
facts havo been ascertained: The cy
clone, struck Monea I'ath at :t.30 o'clock.
The two-story brick stun of Vv . ?.
Shirley was blown down, burying be
neath it six persons, two of whom wer?
killed instantly, two seriously injured
nnd two who escaped unhurt. Many
stores were unroofed, tim streets lilied
with debris, while residences and chim
neys in other portions of thc town were
Tin* two killed are Karie jI/e(juo and
Hurt Austin. The two injured are A.
C. Stone and Edgar Donald. Hot h
legs ol caril are broken and Donald's
back is severely injured. These lour
are young men between 12 and 17 years
old, one, and perhaps all. attending
school in tho town. Thc walls fell
upon these young men as I hoy were
passing the stoic. The two who es
caped aro VV. A. Shirley and Parker
Dunlap. Their escapo from thu store
was cut off by falling brick, which im
Imsoned them in tho only part of tho
)uilding which did not fall. It is ru
mored that a Miss Williams, who lived
two miles north of linnea Path, was
killed during tho storm.
Here in Anderson, at 7 o'clock, a
heavy blow set iu from tho southwest,
gradually increasing in strength ana
velocity, and by b"..iO o'clock it was
blowing a gale almost as terrific ns a
hurricane. Houses trembled and shook
as if they might at any moment go to
pieces. Apprehension, alarm and ex
citement was general all over tho city.
To add to the excitement, at about 0.30
o'cloek thu electric lights went out and
almost immediately an alarm of lire
win} sounded, and tho deep tones of tho
f " bell sent a thrill of horror through
? o**) who heard it. It was soon learn
ed that i 'aero was no lire, only a chim
ney burning out. All through thu night
thu heavy wind continued but gradu
ally diminished. Thu temperature fell
rapidly, beginning about 7 o'clock and
before morning a general blizzard had
set in. Tuesday morning broke clear
with little wind, but with everything
There were no casualties during the
night, but there was at least ono nar
row escape, considerable damage done
to one or moro roofs of stores, thu elec
tric current cut off from I'ortmau,
which stops thu Orr Cotton Mills, tho
greater part of tho Andurson Cotton
Mills and a number of other smaller
industries in tho city, and there was
one horsu killed.
At about U.'JO during thu night, young
Wiluy Driscttl wns driving a pair of
horses to a carriage on East Boundnry
street. Ho was alone. Thu feet of
one of thu horses came in contact with
a fallen, live, uluctric light wiru. Both
horses were shocked. Driscal jumped
from thu carriage and tried to gut in
front of thu horses. Almost immedi
ately both horses full. It was soon dis
eovurud that ono horse waB duad with
his foot untangled in thu wiru. which
was still emitting sparks and flashes.
Thu other horsu was alright uxcupt
bruises. The moat remarkable fact
connected with this, howover, is that
young Driscal several times crossed
this wire in getting to hi s horses and
The Court House lost a good dual of
tho tin covering the comb of tho roof
and somo of thu slate shingling.
The back end of tho roof of tho big
storeroom of Lig?n &. Led better was
openud up to thu sky in a space lOx?lO
feet. Thu tin was rolled up, thu raft
ers gone and tho ten-inch sheeting in
many places snapped in two liku trap
sticks. Had it beun raining their dam
age could not havo been less than
Thu skylight of tho Anderson Studio
on Brick Bango was torn away, several
other roofs partly wrecked, and tho
plato glass windows of tho store room
of B. O. Evaus & Co. injured, one be
ing shattered. Several trees were
blown down, one in thu yard of Charl CR
Buchanan, a largo oak, which crashed
down on top of his dwelling, but for
tunately did very little damage.
The untiro South was swept by this
storm and blizzard. Reports from
Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi,
Northum Texas, Alabama, Georgia and
all parts of Kentucky toll of damage
done by the blizzard.
It was rumored here that hnlf thu
town of Elberton, Ga., waa blown away
and eight or ten puoplo killed, bnt thia
rumor uvlduntly H tarted from a report
of Bowman, in Elbert County, Ga.,
which is to tho effuct that several houses
were demolished and a nnmbur of puo
plo killed. The wires aro down in

Some of the City's Finances.
It will doubtless be considered wisest
by fiomo to refrain for the present from
further remarks on the muddy streets
aud tho proposed bond issue, but there
is hardly a thinking mun or woman in
tho city who does not realize that
something should be done to bettor
present conditions and to prevent a re
currence of another such ordeal. It is
a subject Of conversation every hour of
tho day in nil parts of tho city. It is
fully agreed thut something should be
done, but a suilicicnt number of our
freeholders have not agreed upon a
The Intelligencer thinks it an oppor
tune time to acquaint the people with
a few items of the city's income and
expenditure, so that a better under
standing can be had ns to what is neces
sary in order for the Council to have
done work of a permanent character.
There is no special "street fund," as
some have been led to suppose, but
there is a "current expense I und," out
of which work on the streets and ma
terial for the streets is paid. This lund
is independent ol' all other funds, such
as interest on bonds, sinking fund,
school futid and the like, and arises as
follows : A levy of 5 mills Oil ? 1 ,000,
ooo of taxable, property, equals $0,000;
Dispensary profits per year, 97,000;
average ol' cash lines, $3,200; license's
imposed, $1,400; sanitary dues, $800.
This aggregates, or will uggrcgutejthis
This sum is disbursed as follows:
Mayor's salary, $400; city attorney,
$200; chief of police, $900; live police
men, 92,000; clerk of council, $000;
health oflicer, ?000; janitor, $480; sax
ton at cemetery, $;w?; street overseer,
$000; cost ot (lie department, $800;
feeding mules, $1,200; sanitary depart
ment, $1,102; dieting prisoners, $570;
incidentals, as coal and lights for hall,
printing and stationery, extra police
and the like, $2.020. These item's ag
gregate $13,007, leaving a balance of
$0,843, which the Council cnn spend on
the streets, and which must cover tho
pay roll of street hands and cost of
material. For tho year ending in Au
gust lust, the pay roll of street hands
aggregated $0,318.37 and street mate
rial $0,470, tho sum of tho two being
For the past few years, at least,-$8,
000 to $10.000 annually, has been spent
on the streets. That the work conld
not have been of a more permanent
character we cannot say, that it was
not of a permanent character is evi
dent to every oue. Weare not inclined
to lind fault with this or previous
Councils. We believe they did the
best they could. If it was error then
all of the Councils for several years
past have erred, because they have all
accomplished the same results.
It seems, really, that permanent im
provements cannot bo made without
additional money. Would it not be
wise, therefore, to vote the Council the
additional sum of $20,000 or more, with
which to buy material, tho $9,843 bal
ance, ns above, to be used in payment
of labor? Itv.:!! take several "cars tc
do permanent work throughout the
city, but onco done there could bo car
ried into tho sinking fund at least 2J
mills of the tax rate now being paid
It will bo noticed that a levy of 0
mills o'i tho $1,050,000 of taxable prop
erty produces $0,050, which is just
about the amount we are spending
yearly on tho streets. We notice also
that the yearly pay roll of tho street
hands is just about one-half of this
amount. Wo can conclude then that
2j milla aro necessary for labor and 24
mills for material. Once the streets
are put in permanent condition the
item of material would drop out and
tho item ot labor be materially cut
Viowed in this light, would it not be
a measure of economy to vote the bonds
needed, especially when the many
benefits to be derived from good streets
are taken into consideration.
City Council Meeting.
There was a meeting of the City j
Council last Thursday, lt was tho
tlnal holding of the regular monthly
meeting, which had been postponed.
There were very few measures discuss
ed of general iuterest.
The mnunger of the telephone com
pany. Mr. Moorer, addressed tho Coun

ed making it a misdemenmor to uso
profane language while talking
through tho phones. Council ordered
the drafting of an ordinance to this
effect. The manager also asked that
his company be allowed to trim shade
trees around a new cable they are put
ting in, promising to preserve the syme
try of the trees. Permission was grant
ed, tho trimming to bo under supervis
ion of street committee.
A communication was read showing
that there had been a pro-Mnptory turn
