Acting upon a suggestion Troni
On. M. I... Doiihaiii, .Major J. if. God
frey has culled upon the pastors tii

representatives for the format ion oti(

duty it shall be to adopt und put Into *
execution measures looking toward}'
the relief of suffering in the city ot 11
Anderson brought about by the gen
eral business devrosSloii existing all
over the country.
As soon as Mayor Godfrey lias been
informed of the appointments he will
call a meeting of the committee, in
order that measures to he followed
may he taken up at the earliest date
possible. As In whal plans the com
mittee will udopl, nothing Is known
us yel. Several scheinen have been
suggested, but which one of lhc.se
will be chosen will not ho known j
until the committee bus. held a meet
The letter from Generul Donnam
which has prompted Mayor Godfrey
to call .for tin- appointment, of th?se
commltteemen Is us follows:
"1 was sorry I could not attend (he
meeting last night ot the Chamber of
Commerce because I am much inter
ested In the organization of a relief
committee to look after tho cases of
destitution and want In our city and
cases which are almost certain to
arl3o during the bard winter which
the weather prophets predict. It j [
seems to ine that we ought to bave a !
largo relief committee consisting ot I v
those appointed by the Chamber cfj v
Comme? ce, by .the churches and by j r
you as mayor. This committee could . ?
divido the city into districts and look!
out for the oases of deserving people T
who would not themselves seek char- '
Hy. In order that this committee may
do effective work it must have a fund.
I presume tho city would make a do
nation to that;end and the churches
would take up collections and privat?
individuals wou!d< contribute; but' you
need more than it but and I suggest
that the charitably Inclined should
set to work to raise these funds In
the ways knoyn :to the earnest and
zealous women cf the community and
the broad minded , charitable men.
Dob King would get up a minstrel
show that would rival At Fields' and
alkwouhl go and pay double prices, in
the name of charity and get our mon
ey's worth in laughter. I simply sug
gest these ,waysox>r. reaching an end
which we all have-very much .at heart.
As 1 said-In. a former Communication.
I have known tho . people bt Ander
son for ?o yean? and a more generous,
charitable people never lived and I
.do not doubt that the response of the
people to your appeal would be a lib
eral one. I suggest that you ask the
pastors of the different churches to.
fake action in this matter by numingj"
the representatives' of their churches \ ?
to act on this committee and asking
for contributions to . this fund. This
general commit toe.as I have suggest
ed, ought to meet and organize im
mediately. It is a condition and not
theory .that confronts us and we have
got to act quickly if we .would savo
suffering and want."
Henrietta McGowan Met Horrible

Henrietta McGowan was the wife of

highly respected negroes ot the coun

NO ILL FEELING
PREST. TAYLOR SAYS HIS
COMPANY FEELS KINDLY
DESPITE THE FRAN
Believes in the Future of Ander
son and His Company Will
Always Keep Step.
(From Sunday's Daily.)
Pres. Z. V. Taylor, of the Southern
Public Utilities Company, spent a few
hours in the city yosterday, having
come over from Greenvile. He has
been on a tour of inspection, having
visited several of the cities and towns
of this State. He will go next week
to Winston-Salem, N C? and other
North Carolina points, and then, on to
New York for a brief visit, returning
to Charlotte in time for the big an
nual supper to the employes of his
company, and associated companies,
which will be held there on the even
ing of tho 26th inot
When seen by a representative of
The Intelligencer, Mr Taylor express
ed himsolf.as being well pleased with
the outcome of the recent agitation
here relative to the franchise matter.
He said that he did not welcome, of
course, critici&ni at. any iim.?, but
that in this case he was glad, there
had been bo much. discussion of the
franchise matter, for it wao educa
tional and he felt that the people now
understood what a good contract the
city really has; that he was delighted
to know that the" people of the city
would not.-stand for the setting aside
of n contract entered- into; by the city
under a former administration.
Anderson's Good Contract,
j "Public Bcrvlce companies." said
Mr. Taylor, "seldom have any one to
speak for them, and the information
the people get concerning their work
comes from those opposed to their
: operation. They feel that there is al
ways 'some nigger in the woodpile.'
Dut tho people of Anderson should
realize that they ha*a tho best con
, tract (hey could have, better than
, most pluces, or than almost any oth
i er placo," declared Mr. Taylor. "Why.
the rate for lights in Anderson is 20
I per cent, less than in Columbia, and
40 per cent. less for water than in the
city of Charlotte, which is a munict
: pally owned plant." ' >
Speaking of Anderson's white way,
: Mr. Taylor made the assertion that
there Is not u town in Ith?- .United
States, -so,.far. as he knew; that had
.a?vhite woy'at all comparable to An
. dcrson and Charlotte, that had been
. installed by the company furnishing
the power under , as favorable condl
. tlons. ThlB is the second city in
. which his company has installed a
white way, the other one being Char
i lotte, N. C. Atlanta-assessed the prop
, erty owners to pay for tho. installa
I lion, but his company decided that it
, could bo dono by them, and Charlotte
. was the first city in which they tried
I the experiment. Anderson was the
1 Becond. i- .
In Favor Of Paving. .
'Will your company favor the bond
Issue for paving?" was. asked Mr.
"You can state that my company.
. will do all In its power to promoto a
bond issue for paving although it
.will not be to the Interest of "our
. street railway system to do so, for the
better you make tho streets the more
1 people will ride in vehlclos or walk.
The immediate effects of paving will
hot be helpful to .the street railway
system, end the net returns from the
operation of this system In Anderson
would not pave a city block In a year.
Now," continued Mr. Taylor, "a small
1 concern.could not net financial assist
ance at stich a. tithe to, put into pav-.
t lng, and we have to borrow IV, but yon
can say to your people that we shall
' push the;8treet paving and Bhall keep
1 step with .the progressive p'llrens of
' your town on this paving proposition.
' Our company has spent $275,000 - in
street paving in Charlotte during the
' past three years, ana wo have been
?lad to do it. We shall be glad to do.
' ih? ?arae thing for Andersoa
I that we have done for Charlotte," de
- dared Mr. Taylor,
Ho 111 Feellngi
"How does-your company feel to
> ward Anderson <in view of the recept
i fight that hau been made here relative
It?, the franchise,matter?" Mr, Taylor
"That mutter has not uflectud the
feeling we have for Ander son in the
-lightest degree. We feel just as
kindly towards Anderson today as we
ver did. We shall give the town mir
earnest support and wo do not think
that there it> any one in the city that
will go further for the good of An-'
werson than we will.- Why. do you
know that wo are perhaps as large a
taxpayer as there is in the oily?"'suld
Air. Taylor. "Why should we, there
fore, wish to throttle the city? Why,
wo wouldn't own u public nor vice cor
poration in :t dead town. 1 believe
In tho future of Audcrson. You have
here some of the biggest aud most
rogresslvo men 1 huMe ever known,
and with these men working for the
upbuilding of your city it will he sure
to grow. The Southern Public Utili
ties Company will keep stop with you
in progressive matters," said Mr.
