City of Anderson to Increase her bond

in Anderson at an early date. Ander

bill might get through the General As

when it rep hed the lower house a

:H THE LOI
dragging along in tho House for sev
eral weeks, no vote was secured until
Friday. The measure wae then called'
and while only six votes were cast
against, it, yet this was sufficient to
defeat the bill. The explanation ut this
lies In the fact that!the hill waa an
amendment to the State constitution
and therefore required a two-thirds
majority in the House. The recent fili
buster served to get two things in the
lower houso Into such disorder and so
many members were absent from the
house when the bill came up for a vote
that it was impossible t? secure the
necessary majority. Messrs. Nelson,
Hall and Scott voted fox the bill. Mr.
Gray did not vote and Messrs. Aahiey
and Summers voted against the bill.
Had the bill gone thrc '? some
thing Uko $300,000 would ..ave been
turned loose in Anderson early next
Spring and hundreds of laboring peo
ple, who may be out of positions by
that time, would have been given
work to do. .
It ls understood that Governor
Please was opposed to thc city of An

matter and one gentleman, present

P. Smith and Mnyor .Godfrey, on the
day before the special session o fthe
general assembly convened that the
city ot Anderson would not get any
thing from him as long aa he remain
ed governor of South Carolina. He de
clared that the people ?of that city had
no -reason for treating his brother-in
law. Mr. Summers, as they did ta his
race for state senator, and tor thia
reason he Intended to use his influence
with Mr. Cummers against giving his
support to the Anderson measure. The
Governor declared also that If the
measure passed the general assembly
he would veto it; that he did not in
tend to let Anderson get anything if he
could help ll. He staled that this did
not.apply to the county of Anderson;

a liallow'een party at the school han

hidden by s white curtain covered
with all of these uncanny Hallo'een
emblems and all of the guests were
draped in sheets and masks. They
were met back of this curtain by a
ghost who conducted them, one at a

way with the uddltfon of a salt and
alcohol light making the effect very
fantastic. Apples were suspended over
the stage, others were merrily ban

after unmasking, were told to try to
capture these with their teeth. In a
Bcrazy corner, amid lanterns of man)
fancy patterns a ?ortunc teller was en
