HAS FORWARDED HIS RESIG
' NATION TO GOVERNOR
FOR OTHER WORK
One of County's Most Faithful and
Efficient Officials Will Retire
From Active Politics
Anderson county people will learn
with regret that C. W. McGee, one of
the best treasurers Anderson county
has, ever had. will retire the .-om of
fice he now holds on July 1 md will [
assume other work. This decision has
been reached by Mr. McGee after ma
ture deliberation and friends of his
say tbat it is a wise move, but at the
same lime the public in generul will
regret to learn of his decision.
Mr. McGee has been contemplating
this step for some time hut he did not
reach any definite decision until Tues
day afternoon, Ho then wrote to
Governor Blouse, notifying him
of his resignation, which he asked
to become effective on July I. On that
date, if lie b.: relieved In time, Mr.
McGee will take tp other work.
The popular treasurer was elected
to office four years ago. after serving
for some time in the office of the clerk
or court. He polled a tremendous
vote wht n he was elected and this vote
it is sufd. would hardly compare with
the one he certainly would have re
ceived in the event he ran again this
time. It ls generally conceded that
he could easily have been re-elected.
The governor should have received
Mr. McGee*? resignation early yester
day morning, but is away from Colum
bia, being in (marleston now, and
therefore he bas not given out any
official notice ,of haring received it.
However, it is presumed, that lt will
roach, him today -i-Jid lt- is expected
that he will make some announcement.
Mr. McGee is anxious to take up his
new work on the first of next month if
he can be relieved by that time and
if not. as soon thereafter as may be
possible.

of the New York, New, Haven anti
Hartford Rullrond, testifying today be
fore Hie interstate commerce commis
sion 'at Us . inycathjatlbn into the' af
fairs of the road, said,the .acquisition
of various. New . England trolleys,
steamship lines and other properties
at n cost of many millions of dollars,
constituted a part of the New Haven's
comprehensive plan to InoreaBe Its fac
ilties.
Many properties thus acquired, it
was stated, only had a prospective val
ue, the natural growth of New England
being taken into consideration by the
directors.
Mr. Elton, questioned on this point
by William Nelson Cromwell, who ap
peared as counsel for several directors,
declared the purchase for $11,000,000
of the New York, West Chester and
Hosten road the stock of which form
er President Meilen of the New Huv

a oound" was for the purpose of ob
taining a foothold In the Metropolitan
district and obtaining greater terminal
facilities In New York.
Mr. Elton testified that the New Hav
en directors had changed their meth
ods and now were not influenced so
much by one or two men, like J. P.
Morgan and Former President Mellen,
as they formerly were. H? said the
"directors now direct" and hud learn
ed a "great nianv things." He added
that President Elliott was more delib
erate than Mr. Mellen and did not
"rush them off their feet.
Mr. Skinner Bald he believed "If
things had been allowed to go on ann
the New Haven and its officials had
not been subjected to Inimical Inquir
ies and legislation" the property
would have pulled out all right, per
haps. In Ave years. He asserted that
Mr. Mellen could have retained the

"Aside from ?he extreme low neck
