ture plans, stated thal he ?mild bi
engaged In private engineering work, j
having already accepted enough en-1
FSagements of this nuture to keep him j
busy fOi' a long tiin?^ to come. Other
than this Mr. Binders had nothing to
Buy an to hi? future plann.
Upon being asked if there was any
reason for his throwing up the Joh
of city engineer when the act abolish
ing the offico does not become effec
Mvt ?'or a month yet, Mr. Sanders de
clined to make any comment. How
over, it was currently reported on the
street? yesterday- that Mr. Sunders wan
actuated in resigning the position of
city engineer at this time because o?
convictions that city council's act In
resolving to aLollsh the office was u
"political move." .\lr. Sandern de
clined to make a statement when
asked If this had been tho cause of
hts deciding to resign when he did.
Mr. Sanders la a nativo of Ander
sen, being w,ldely ami prominently
connected throughout tho county. He
attended tho public schools of Ander
son and later Clemson college, where
, he took a course In engineering. For
several year? ho was engaged In bin
(profession In New York city, and lat
ir went wost, where he nudo a spec
ialty of utreet paving engineering.
Mr. Sander? had charge of extensive
paving projects In tho great city or
. Spokane. Washington, and in other
. parts of that ?tate. Later ho return
ed to Anderson, and was tendered the
position of city onglncer, which ho
. accepted. .,
When the city voted bonds for thc
repent paving project. Mr. Sanders
was placed In charge of tho work
Though tho services of a consulting
engineer wore retained, it was gene;
x ally conceded that. Mr. Sanders knew
tho paving business about as well or
bettor than any consulting engineer
who could bo found, and accordingly
tao success'of the city's paving pro
ject from an engineering standpoint,
was, In u large mensuro, tn his hand9.
Thal the job la one of the most thor
ough and "first class in evory respect,
is attested by expert? of the hlghe.it
jepututlon who have viewed lt.
Wherever ho goes or In whatever
work he engages, the people of Ander

gratitude for what be has done foi
tho city and feel under obligations to
tho young man who devoted his tal

Mr. Joe Sharpe, brakeman on thc
Blue Ridge railway, about 21 years
old, was painfully injured lato yes
terday afternoon when knocked from
the ladder of a box car upon which
he was riding. Mr. Sharpe, it ls
said, was "clearing" the track while
shifting near the round house, and
was scraped from the rear end of the
car upon which ho was riding. Two
onginps were shifting cars on tho
tracks, and MY. Sharpe, lt seems,
made the mistake of misjudging thc
"clearance," and when tho second
train passed the switch i\e was drug
from the ladder
The injured man was rushed im
mediately to the Anderson hospital,
and i cportB from there late last !
night wore that he was resting well, j
His injuries consisted of a deep gosh i
in the side of his head, possibly duo
to compact with the edge ot the pack
ing box oar, and of brusle3 caused JV
his fall to the track. He was uncon
scious when carried to tho hospital.
