MADE CONTRACT !
FOR WHITE WAY
WORK WILL BEGIN ON ITS
OVER 10 0 POSTS
George Miller Says That Local
System Will Be Complete In
Following a conference held yeBter
day at :! o'clock In the city hall, Ma
yor Holleman and Aldermen Farmer
and Elmore closed a contract with
George Miller for a"groat white way"
for Anderson and Mr. Miller at once
telegraphed to the manufacturers c/
the whito way posts to rush the re
quired number of posts to the city.
The posts are made at Anderson. Ala.,
and they will prohahly arrive here
at an early date and the actual work
of constructing"^ white wny for the
city will ho put under way.
When ft became known last night
thai the council had closed u contract
for the system the people of the city
were well pleased. Numbers of the
business men of thecity said that they
considered it one - of the best steps
that the council had over tnken and
the action of the body was generally
endorsed on every side.
, In talking with a reporter for The
Intelligencer, Mr. Miller said that he
did not know just how long it would
take for the new posts to arrive, but
he expected the manufacturers to lose
no time in getting the poats on the
road and that the work would be then
pushed 88 rapidly as possible as noon
as the material reached here. He said
that beyond doubt the now system
would be ready for use by the time
the C\,ii?i.-?r;raic reunion convenes ncrc
in May and the work of installing the
white way will be pushed with that
end in view.
This system will cost approximately
$10,000 but under the terms of agree
ment between Mr. Miller and the cltv
council, the city of Anderson wljl not
pay can tent for the improvement,
as they were merely required to close
a contract thnt they would keep tkt?,
white way lu operation for the next '
10 years and pay for current consum- (
ed by the lights at the .rate of $35 per ;
post per annum. The fact that more |
poles were contracted for yesterday
than had at first been contemplated,
will not affect this. All told, the An
derson system will have 108 posts.
The system will commence at the
postofflce and will run from there to
the square, where a quartet row of
lights will be Installed, the same be
ing placed on both sides of the Plaza
and on both sides of the opposite side
of tbo court house square; the lights
will then go down West Whltner
street to the site of the new theatre;
down East Whltner to McDuffle street.
Crossing the square again, the lights
will bo . installed on Benson street,
from Peoples to McDuffle, doubling
back again to the court house square J
and going down South Main street to
the site of the new proposed termi-|
nals of *.he Charleston & Western:
Carolina Railway. This will. cover
the entire business district.
Mr Miller stated in The l?tel?gcr.
ccr reporter last night that the sys
tem proposed for this city will be the
most complete is the entire South
from the standpoint of covering the
entire business district, and that the
special display as arranged for the
square will give a setting to the. sys
tem unobtainable usually elsewhere.
It was understood in Anderson last
night that the Ladles' Civic League,
and the Anderson chamner of com
merce will at once make a proposition
to the city council concerning a cel
ebration to be held when tho system
is completed. Tentative plans have
already been made, ttvese including a
great parade, special music, a dtapaly
of Ore works and several other attrac
tions. There is little doubt but that
the council will accept the offer of a
joint celebration and the day of -op
ening the system will be a big one
