ANDERSON AND THE SOUTHERN.
When it wall announced that President Fairfax Harrison would
come to Andersen some business men, appreciating the need of better
train service west of Anderson, thought it would be a good idea to get
up petitions asktag the president of (he Southern road to give earnest
consideration to the opening of the line from Walhalla to Clayton,'
Ga., and thence by sundn connections to Knoxville
As a step in this direction, to show to the railway company!
that even its local business might be benefited, without track exten
sion, it was decided to ask that the gas-electric coach, which now
operates at a loss between Anderson and Greenville, be switched to
the line west of here, taking in Westminster and Walhalla.
The gas-clectrrc car is said to be anything but a financial success.
The railroad people admit this themselves. It could not be any more
of n dead loss when operated between Walhalla and Anderson. This
proposed plan ?f'getting petitions was not by any means to go over
the head of Capt. John R, Anderson, but to work in connection with
him, to back him up in anything that lie might ask for the road.
Capt. Anderson loves the Bitte Ridge road more than any other
human being, and is more ambitious for its extension; he loves An
derson; his personal interests all are here. Hut h has h 1 such a
long, hard fight to get the road where it is that the public ...oulJ not
hesitate to back him up and to encourage him in anything that the
road will do for the development of trade and the improvement of
Heretofore we have pointed out that the Blue Ridge is not oper
ated, as to schedules and connections, in a way that is quite to the
advantage of Anderson. The "Anderson coach" that stands in the
Union station in;Columhia attached; to tJ?e Columbia and Greenville
tvain has got to be a State-wide joke, and discredits this city.
When the roar) from Coluhibm was first projected it was stipu
lated in the charter* that Anderson, was to have as many "trains a
day out of Columbia as Greenville, and we would like to, [inquire
if this conslder.Hlonf has been shown Anderson by the Southern Rail
way? Any one who thinks so has but to run over to Bettjon and
see the trains gb by on their way to Greenville?nice, clean, electri
cally lighted, steel frame coaches, and Pullmans once a day.
And yct-vfc have heard that under Cant. John R. Anderson's
superb management the Blue Ridge has been relatively the best pay
ing piece of property of the Southern Railway.
We are not knocking the Southern Railway. This great organi
zation has done wonders for the South, but onlv where the demand
has been made- Those people in Spartanburg have had a union stn
know that ?he p??fle here are dissatisfied with train conditions and
with poor accommodations unless a protest or appeal of some kind
Is registered / ^|
We see n?|hj?m injGhe peopleJif^Denver and Sandy Springs and
Pc??u?cto?? and Auiun' ?tnu ClciriSon College and Seneca petitioning for
a better train service. The Southern Railway will make adequate in
vestigation b^fnra anything is done.
"There is no feasbn for any strained relations between the people
of Anderson and*he Southern Railway. The city of Anderson, as a
commercial whole, should appreciate the efforts of the Southern
and the Blue Ridge to build a handsome union station here, and should
rgive tr*>Stuthem a lot of freight* and we believe thatif the S??t?lS?i
Mm shov4^!>!^Ai2l%e:p^lcy toward Anderson.lt will never h*ve
to make a cry, of discrimination. The Southern is a great railway
systcfuVSfid Anderson needs it, and the Southern should hoid out the
helping h??irj to Anderson, a city that has lifted ttself by pulling at its
own boot-straps. -
Clemson College is within the natural territory of .Anderson,
and yet much of the trade and nearly all of the travel of that com
munity goes 1o Greenville, 15 miles further, because of better train
service. If there were a spur track from Clemson to the Blue Ridge,
'we believe thafcthe trade of Anderson would be appreciated by near-y
a yuarier of a million dollars a year.
Again to the main proposition. The petition to be circulated in
the towns west of Anderson is for the Southern Railway to investigate
and see if it would not pay the enmnany better and serve a larger
number of people and relieve conditions to a greater degree to have
the shuttle trains now operated between Greenwood ana Greenville,
or the gas-electric, switched over from that part of the line which has
so many trainssto the western end of the Blue Ridge.
THE NEED OF HOTELS IN ANDERSON.
There were 'somrr io or IS persons who'had to sit up all night
in hotel lobbies in Anderson last night because there was no place
for ttiem to lodge. Trie night before the Sheriff rof Elbert County,
Georgia, arrived in the city after dark. These, are conditions which
are unknown to the people of Anderson. And yet we learn that this
kind of situation occasions no surprise among those who are ac
quainted withthe facts. The patrolmen on d>ty at night frequently
have to find room for the late comer who iinds all the hotels crowded.
Tuesday;night the Sheriff of Elbert County, Georgia, came In
here with a deputy,,and, even.the boarding houses known to the police
0*y;CC__ mied to ?. crowed condition. A well meaning citizen
I tViedTto finda Voom. at the Y. Ni. Ci A., and finally took the Georgia
Sheriff to his own Home Tather than'let him go back home with an
account of the apparent Inhospitable conditions in Anderson. '
There are the conditions, men of Anderson. The hotels that
are here today are absolutely inadequate to take care of the transient
business We are to have'a theatre, which multiplies the business
of a hotel.- And .we all look forward with longing, and with, ex
pectancy to th/lray when Anderson will have railroad extension.
I Notwithstanding what some croakers say, the logic of the situation is
I that if Anderson goes after it right she will get the railroad extension
firt the next year or two. . .....
We must ?egin to provide hotel accommodations in anticipation
of *hp^ffjfessional hotel men, observing the unmistakable 4 trend of
events, hrfve put their prices too high, when consulting with reference
to going Mossiness here on a stock company plan, ^^yktjrow
that something MUST be done. It appears to us that the thing to
be done is for.ihe business men of Anderson'to w^rk out this pl*Ncm1
If or themselves.*1* .
Otherwise the town will sutler, as it nas sunerea aireaay oy not
having hotels Sufficient to accommodate the public.
N [$a, SEND US NAMES OF VETERANS.
In "iew of the fact that the- State reunion of Confederate vet
erans is to be heldlh Anderson this year, we f?el that: there should be
a more widespread organization of the veterans of the county. . The
camp In this city is.alive and active, but th*rej;hould be camps in
leverv part ofjh? county, and the Sons of Veterans also should, get
towsy to assistthe oftf soldiers In every way.
In order to assist in preserving the military history of this
countv The Daily Intelligencer will be pleased to receive the names
rof alfof the ol?so?diers in the county, as well as old company rolls,

That there is really and truly such

tain eminent attorney of Anderson,
This yagal gentleman, who has'but -

groundhog as Commodore Perry said.
"The groundhog was hlsn." It was
while on n vacation up in the moun

this aforesaid eminent attorney re
marked that a pesky old groundhog
was bothering him so mucn he would
give $r.O to get rid Of tli" beast. Armed
with a rifle, the attorney lay in v.alt

he was the victim or a trick, such as
the fabled snipe hunt or the ;badgcr
game of sour and story. "Is there
such a thing as a groundhog," ho be
gan to -worry. Then there recurred
those lovely; lilting lines of Shakes
peare, 'Would a Wcod'.huck chuck,"
and lie took fresh ho pet And with
taking hope he took aim.
For not far away there was an
object queer , and quaint, spatty and
waddling', fat and fluffy, about 18 in
ches, w; Uehftp gray hair like a.rib

and opaque,.' eyes round and ratty,

woodchuck, colloquially known as the
groundhog.., "Ping," spoke the rifle
and the woodchuvk chucked his last
"Here's your . woodchuck, what
shall do wtthr'tt?" was the greeting
that the lawyer gave his host. And
incidentally he added: "You may Just

old mountaineer laughed not ono whit
at this sally but grimly took the
wcodchuck to . the woodshed and

of fur. His object was not apparent
