the i preseht period of depression,
collections and other adverse condi
tions, however, brought about tho j
closing of the institution.
It is lo be regretted that pressur?
of withdrawals this week have caused
the bank to "be closed, for $175,000
of war finance corporation funds I
would have been available to the I
bank: before tho end of the week. Ap
plication had been approved, and
when final arrangements were com
pleted the application was signed by
the directors and ready to be sent off.
When this was completed the bank
officials hoped to aveit closing tho
bank, but unfortunately talk of tho
weakened condition of tho bnnk be
came so widely circulated that Mon-j
day and Tuesday showed steady and
continued withdrawals of deposits at
the bank. So great was this pressure
of withdrawals that, despite the loyal I
assistance of other banks, officers of
the People's Bank realized that night
that they could not stand another day
such as had just been passed, and it
was then that It was seen that the
bank could not be opened again.
The effect of the closing of t|el
People's Bank has shown tho true
Anderson spirit during the day. The
three other banks of the city are In
strong financial condition, and a few
nervous persons asked for their de
posits, but In practically every caso |
when they were told that they could
get their money they did not want it
ns badly as they though1. On the con
trary, deposits in the other banks of
the city have shown an Increase.
The people have not lost their
heads, and aro not going to. In fae1,
tho weakened condition of tho Peo
ple's Bank had been generally known
for months, and now that the worst
has come lt will go a long way to
ward clarifying tho situation.
Established in 1800.
The People's iBank was established
in Anderson in 1899, the capital be
ing $ 100,000. J. J. Fretwell was its
first ?resident. Mr. FrutweH j^ct'red
and J,ee G. Hollemnn became presi
dent of the bank, remaining at its
head until its death last summer.
Since the bank's foundation tho
capital had boen increased to $200,
000, and its surplus showed $100,
000 in Its last statement. It was a
popular bank In the city and county
and was largely patronized.
At the present time its officers
aro: E. P. Vandiver, president; H.
H. Watkins, vice president; J. <F.
Watson, vice president; T. S. Ban

Nothing of General Interest.
Columbia, Jan. 20, 1922.
.Editor Keowee Courier:
As you have been so nico to me by
sending me your paper while in Co
lumbia, I desire to express my appre
ciation of your kindness by furnish
ing you with some legislativo mat
Nothing of special interest has as
yet passed the Senate. Several bills
have passed tho House. They are lax
revenue bills-a bill to tax gasoline
two cents per gallon; a bill for tax
ing moving picture shows; also a bill
calling for an inheritance tax, grad
uated, w'th certain exemptions.
The great question seems to be
"How can we take care of the educa
tional Interests of the State at large
and at the same time lower taxes
to say nothing of the good roads
movement? In my opinion, this can
not bo done. If any one of my con
stituents can see how lt can be done
1 wish he, she or they would let mo
know. It will be information appre
ciated by the General Assembly. I
will bo glad to hear from any ono
In regard to their views on this mat
ter. Do any want their home school
crippled or their roads to go un
workod? If we ever do decide to pass
any legislation worth while at this
session, I will write you again and
let you know.
In my opinion, lt is a bad time to
change legislation, as everything else
Deems tc be bad enough without do
ing anything to make it worse. Wo
might legislate in haste and repent
at leisure. I think 1 will try to kill
bills at this session instead of Intro
ducing any bills. From what I can
learn, wo have more commissions
and commissioned salaried people
than we have money to pay them
with. Everybody wants moro pay
and loss work.
We had with us this week John F.
Craig, cashier of the West Union
Hank. He was attending a meeting
of tho Railroad Commission in tho
interest of getting a depot at West
Union. The Oconee delegation feels
honored by his presence.
Tho Railroad Commissioners have
promised to meet the town council
of Seneca on Jan. 21st for the pur
pose of considering tho putting In of
