Dollars W?1 Be Spent by William
Wrigley & Company tn Effort
to Aid Southern Farmers.
- Any idea how much chewing gum
you cr.uld buy for $1,000,000? It may
be a difficult matter to puzzle out
Just how much gum that ls but wil
liam Wrigley and company, manufac
turera of the world-famous "Spear
mint': chewing gum offer to help the
farmers Qt the South to the extent of
$1,000.000, according to a letter re
ceived here yesterday by wholesalers.
In the letter written to the Ander
son concern the gum manufacturers
say that the plans have been fully
completed and that they are deter
mined to help the people of the South
If the people down here need and
want help. They offer to send the de
tails of their idea to any of the
wholesalers in th? cotton country!
upon application and lt goes without
saying that Anderson dealers Jumped 1
at the idea. ; ' 1
It ls presumed thal the plan con- '
templates having the wholesale deal- '
er to purchase cotton .from distress- 1
ed farms at 10 cents per "pound and 1
then tho Wrigley people will take the
cotton at the same figure In payment
for gum. It will be a very liberal of
fer, if this ls the case.

General Election Came and Went

Never Knew It Happened. I
Whether they did not have regis

not care anything about the general
election is a matter of some doubt but
it ls certain that Anderson people
took practicaly no Interest in the elec
tion held yesterday. The vote waa very
light Indeed at all boxes and lt ls un
derstood that a number of country
boxes did not go out at ail and hence
ai ?iiwtst- precincts mere was no bal
There was only one federal box
and only one federal ballot. This con
tained the names of EL D. Smith for
United States Senator and Wyatt
Aiken for Congress.
There were three State boxes and
about ?101 different amendments tc
he voted on. the only one of Which
interested Anderson people was that
giving the town of Belton the right
to assess abutting property.
When the polls closed yesterday
afternoon all the managers locked up
their boxes and in some manner dis
appeared from view. So far as can be
learned no tabulations have yet been
made and no figures have been com
piled. It was absoultely impossible
last night for The Intelligencer to as
sure any returns and it will probably
3e several days before the managers
san give any exact figures on the
imendments, since they were so num
It is believed that ?he total vote for
Anderson will hardly exceed 1500, as
hat is about the figure for most gen
While local folks did not care mach
ibout how the election went in South
karolina, they were Interested in the
'ote cast in other States for Congress,
lovernor, etc. Numerous calls were
eceived over the telephone from peo
de wanting to know who was elected
overnor of New York, who was elect-,
d to Congress in different states and
?ow the Democrats upheld their, end
f the fight. Many callers came in
orson to The Intelligencer office to
et the returns as they came ia over

Two officials of the Charleston and
Western Cerolina railroad, B. Wil

agent, and F. M. Hoar, superintendent
of transportation, came to Anderson
yesterday in the Interest of their
road. Both these gentlemen have of
fices In Augusta, Ga., and their trip
:o Anderson waa made for tl?? our
posc of conferring with local busi
ness men, with tho secretary of the
chamber of commerce, and with the
newspaper publishers in regard to
some schedule by which thia city
might g*>t better service than IB now
being provided over the Anderson
branch of this railroad.
Nothing wa3 done in regard to the

ence yesterday but Mr. Williams and
Mr. Doar hope that they can work
out some plans, aa a result of the
suggestions made yesterday, by which
their road will profit nnd the people
Of this city will be well served. .
At the conference numerous sug
gestions' were made, all of which had
good features hut some objectionable
features as well. One proposed ached
ule is that the mixed train leave Mc
Cormick at 5 a. m. and arrive at An
derson at 9:15 a. m., and returning
leave Anderson at 11:15 a. m., reach
ing McCormick at 3 p. m.

would reach Anderson at 3:20 p. m.

at 3:35 p. m. and reach McCormick
at 6:15 p. m. However, it ts pointed
out by Anderson people that under
I these circumstances the crews of
I both trains would spend every night
! in McCormick, whereas Anderson
wants one crew at least to lay over
Another schedule has been suggest
ed, said to be o splendid one, by
which the mixed train would leave
McCormick at 6 a. m., arrive at An
derson at io:i."> a. m. Returning it
would leave Anderson at 3:00 p. m.
?nd reach McCormick at 6:15 p. m.
The straight passenger train, under
this suggested schedule would leave
Anderson at 7:20 a. m., carrying mall,
reach McCormick at 10:10 a. m.,
would leave McCormick* at 12:30 p.
m. and arrive in Anderson at 3:10
p. m. In this maimer one crew
would spend the night in Ancerson
and at the same time the Anderson
public would be given better facilities
