Several gentlemen are talking very
strongly of organizing a stock company
for the purpose of building a commodi?
ous hotel in this city. A good idea. If
there is any thing that Ander son needs
badly, it is a comfortable hotel building.
If somo prominent man would take the
matter in hand, vre believe he could soon
organize a company with sufficient capi?
tal to erect a suitable building. Let us
wake up from our lethargy and display a
little more enterprise and progressive
ness. Such things build up a place. An?
derson is growing steadily, the Savannah
Valley Railroad will bo completed in an?
other year, and to meet the demands of the
increasing travel, we must and will have
a big hotel. Who will take the lead in
this enterprise? This Fall would be the
most favorable time for organizing the
A Train Wreol.ec;.
The up-passenger train was wrecked at
a point about five miles .below this city,
I near Broadaway trestle, last Friday night,
j It was the day set apart for the grand
I Summer excursion from the low-country
to the mountains, and there were between
two and three hundred passengers aboard.
On account of the heavy load the train
bad gotten an hoar or two behind time.
The greater portion of the track be?
tween Belton and Broadaway trestle is of
the old flange iron laid upon stringerB.
Engineer Carter was in charge of the
train, which was composed of six cars,
and, knowing that he was off of tbe
schedule, moved along very cautiously
over this portion of tbe Road, running, I
he thinks, at tbe rate of about fifteen |
miles an hoar. He felt his engine strike j
what, he believed to be a "snake-head," a
term applied to a loose joint. The engine
and mail car passed over safely, but
when tbe smoking car struck it the crash
came, and in a twinkling of an eye the
smoking car together with the foar pas?
senger cars were wrecked. The South
side of tbe track for the whole length of
j tbe wrecked cars was torn almost com?
pletely away. One pair of trucks of each I
car, at one or the other end, were dis?
placed and that end thrown to the ground.
Tbe cars were thrown almost across the '
track, in a zigzag sihape, though remain?
ing intact and not turning over. The
I passengers were considerably shaken up,
but, strange to say, hot a single ono was
As soon as Conductor Smith found that
no one was injured, he dipatched the en?
gine and mail car to this city, where he
obtained four box cars and returned to
tbe wreck.
The news soon spread over the city,
and quite a crowd gathered at the depot,
all eager to learn the particulars of the
wreck, as several of our citizens were ex?
pecting friends on the train.
We returned wich the train to the scene. I
Arriving there we found the passengers
setting around camp fires, patiently wait?
ing, and doubtless feeling thankful that
they had made such a narrow escape.
Their countenances, however, indicated
plainly tbat they would not venture soon
on another excursion. As we viewed tbe
wreck we were more than puzzled that no
one waa injured. Indeed, it seemed as if
Providence bad taken special care of
tbem. It was simply remarkable thatno
one was hurt. We doubt if the like has
ever occurred befcre.
The passengers and baggage were soon
transferred, and the train on its way
again, arriving bore between 12 and 1
Conductor Smith, who, by the way, is
one of the best officers in the employ of
tho Company, was cool and self-possessed,
and was untiring in his efforts to make
the passengers comfortable.
The construction train was ordered to
tbe scene immediately tbat night, and by J
dark Saturday afternoon the wreck had
been sufficiently cleared to allow the reg?
ular train to pass.
It Ls said by tho?e who know tbat this
is tbe third accident which has occurred
near this same place within tbe past sev?
eral years. To go there and look at that
old flange iron one would be surprised
that ihere are not more trains wrecked.
The Company should take all this old
flange iron up and replace it with more
modern rails as soon as possible.
The City Council.
Thi new City Council was sworn in
last Friday and immediately took the
reins of the city government in hand.
The old Council left the treasury empty.
With this fact in view, the new Council
determined; in order to keep out of debt
as much as possible, to cut down ex?
penses. Accordingly, tbe rirst step in this
direction was a reduction of the salaries
of the various officers in their employ,
amounting in tbe aggregate to $550.00 a
year. The following officerp were then
Clerk and Treasurer?W. S. Brown.
Chief of Police?Joseph R. Fant.
1st Assistant Policeman?R. F. Mc
2nd Assistant Policeman and Engineer
of Fire Department?C. C Cummings.
3rd Assistant Policeman and Street
Overseer?P. A. Spellmau.
These gentlemen were in the employ of
the old Council, and their retention by
the new Council shows that they are effi?
cient, reliable and trustworthy officers.
Mayor Tolly then announced the fol?
lowing standing committees:
On Streets?J. M. Payne, J. L. Farmer
and F. M. Murphy.
Ways and Means?B. F. Mauldin, J. S.
Fowler and J. L. Farmer.
Health?Foster Fant, B. F. Mauldin
and F. M, Murphy.
Fire Department?J. S. Fowler, Foster
Fant and J. M. Payne.
The new Council will necessarily be re?
stricted in their public work until after
the next taxes have been collected, but
no public enterprise in which the city is
interested will be permitted to lag.
To the Voters of Anderson County.
We have read with regret the card of
Col. J. N. Brown, in which he says he in
no longer a candidate for a seat in our
State Legislature.
In our judgment, the people could
send no man in this County to the Legis?
lature who could do more good for the
whole people than Col. Brown. We con?
sider him an honest and able Christian
gentleman, and one who understands the
condition and needs of our County and
State, and one who has the ability to rep?
resent bis fellow-citizens well in every
particular. He can do as much or more
to correct tbe evils now existing in our
laws, and to help make better and more
wholesome ones to meet the wans of the
people, as any man that can be elected.
We are all vitally interested in having
men elected to the next Legislature who
are good financiers, so as to be able to
make tbe best arrangements about tbe
future settlement of our State debt, with?
out greatly increasing our already high
taxes. Also men who will guard, against
excessive appropriations for the State
House, Canals and other thing j which
will come before them.
We know of no man in the Cou nty who
could and would meet these demands,
and fight for low taxes with greater abil?
ity and foresight than Col. J. N. Brown.
If you want low taxes send some men
to tbe Legislature who are large tar pay?
ers themselves, for it is human nature for
them to advocate and fight for lo w taxes
with more vigor than the men who pay
little or none. For these, and many
other reasons, it is to be hoped, and tbe
voters of Anderson County are earnestly
solicited, to support and elect Col. Brown,
notwithstanding his withdrawal. We
feel satisfied that if be is called by the
people, he will ably serve them.
Let it be said, in fact, that this time tbe
office has sought the man and not tbe
man the office.

To The Public.
Haviag heard that Mr. J. R. Fant was
the author of the charges alluded to in
my card published in last week's Intel?
ligencer, I am now satisfied from state?
ments made to me by Mr. Fant tbat he
did not originato or circulate them, and
it affords me pleasure to thus publicly
exonerate bim from all blame.

1 Another Rescue from Death.?In 1881
: while sewing on a machine, my wife was
taken with a severs pain in her side, which
was soon followed by hemorrhages from
her lungs, severe cough, fever, and she
could neither eat or sleep, and in a few
weeks she was reduced to a living skeleton.
Her stomach refused to retain any food, and
the physician thought one of her lungs was
entirely gone. At a final consultation of
two physicians her case was pronounced
hopeless. I tried Brewer's Lung Restorer
by advice of one of the physicians, and she
began to improve after the third dose. She
continued the medicine, and is now in ex?
cellent health, and is better than she bas
been in several years. I believe Brewer's
Lung Restorer Bavcd . r lifo.
