seem that tho hone was about to he

finally give up the plan and another !
year would pans by without unything
being done. The attempts to hold.
fairs were a failure because of poor
management.
People living in Belton do not seem j
to believe in failure of thla kind; and i
when they decide they want u tiling '
they go after It. A number of Helton
pcoplo wore In Anderson yesterday
and they told about the organization!
of their fair association and of the]
plans which they hopo to carry out.
They say that the success of the ven
ture is already assured.
The members of the Delton fair as
sociation met last Wednesday morninb
!uul elected ofllcers, appointed com
mittees and fixed the date for the next
annual fair. The following officers
were elected: D. A. Oer, president;
Dr. E. C. Frlorson, vice president; K.
O. Campbell, treasuser, and Claude
A. Gr?fes, secretary. The fair, as lis
ual, will be for one day only, and
Wednesday, October 21, wns named.
Tl Is fair promises to be the best
lover pulled off in Delton, though the
I former were away tho hont Jjj the

GREAT DAMAGE DONE
8Y ANOTHER STORM
HAIL FELL IN SEVERAL SEC
TIONS OF COUNTY
COTTON IS RUINED
Specimens Sent To This City Yes
terday Showed That Stalks
Were Ripped Into Shreds
i
The second disastrous storm of the
season vieited Anderson county
Thursday afternoon, reuniting in
great damage. The Intelligencer re
ported yesterday morning that the
storm hud been particularly severe in
some sections but it was impossible to
get any definite Information Thurs
day night as to the extent of the
crop damage.
Farmers coming into the city yes
terday reported that crops in some
scellons were pructically ruined and
Unit tin: cotton stalle; had been shred
ded into fibres. It Ib believed
that little of the cotton in the storm
stricken district can make anything
tills year.
C. D. Hawkins of Anderson, R. P.
P. No a, came to the city yesterday
and brought some of his cotton along.
It was cut almost to pieces and Mr.
Hawkins says that he cannot bring
himself to hope that he will mako any
sort of crop at all. He said that the
storm practically devastated Iff ncres
of cotton for him In the Long Branch
Lection, He, said tbut from what he
could ascertain as to the route taken
by the hail storm, it was about six
miles In length and extended about
three and one-half miles in width.
In the Flat Kock section, visited
only a few days ago by a very severe
haii storm, lightning struck a barn
owned by Walter Dean and burned it
to the gerund. Ho lost a auanttty of
iuuii Biuir at the same time. It is
said that the hall storm along the
Williamston highway was particularly
severe and that crops there are ruined.
Plantations belonging to Dr. J. O.
Sanders and to L. W. Harris were
about the worst sufferers in that sec
tion.
It is feared that still later reports
will coma in from other suctions of
the county telling of great damage
done.
Henry McFall, who was in the city
yesterday, confirmed the report that
his crop was ruined, as was that of
J. S. McCarley. On his lower farm,
where he has seven plows, Swillin Mc
Fall had the best crop prospects he
had ever seen. But the hail has ruin
ed ids chances.
GOVERNOR'S RECORD,
? ROUGHLY . HANDLED
Continued From Page One.)
fraud of two years ago was on the
other side and charged that a local
Baptist preacher had enrolled two
years ago the day before the lection
and voted against the governor.
Ho also made the accusation- that
men from the Southern Power Com
pany, working hero, but from North
Carolina, wore voted against him.
Mr. Jennings made it clear 'to the
Greenwood audience today just why
the Governor Bhoutd't explain his
record. At no time since the cam
paign opened has this fearless candi
date hsndled in such a rough-shod
manner the governor's record. Today
particular coses were cited, such as
the Gus Rtchey case at Abbeville
where a little orphan girl, taken from
n mill village vas assaulted by its
adopted father who was convicted, but
soon got the bo ue (It of the governor's
mercy. -There were other cases and
after, each the mayor of Sumter would
ask the rhetorical question, "Is there
any wonder ihui the g??cfnof uOva
not attempt o explain his record?"
No uttOTOnr of the campaign has so
seised upon the thoughtful attention
of the voters.

toward a settlement of the trouble.
Tonight about 400 members of the

ducted un orderly meeting. It is this
organization whose rules prohibit
"overtime," and' which caused the
friction, when tho company ordered
certain lost time to be made up. The

early Thursduy morning when tho I.
W. W. members, who were employes
in the weave room declined to abide
by the rules of the company and make
up time lout during a storm Wednes
day.
No excitement prevails here. and
there has boon' no disorder from the
first. Sheriff Ashley was here and
was among those who made speeches
to the I. W. W.
The statement as to the cause of
tbes trike is that the mill was shut
down twice Wednesday for Just a lit
tle over an hour and when the super
intendents informed the "help that tho
mill would run overtime, they rofused
and as the help Is working by the

A. F. Huunicutt, one of the leaders
of the I. W. W. and-'an operative in a
local mill said yesterday that the or
ganization stood for certain working
hours as follows: The mill to start at
six and run until noon, when a recess
of one hour shall be given for dinner;
then resume work and continue un
til ?lx o'clock. Tho organization is
opposed to overtime.

houses at the village must be vacated
by Saturday th? 18th If the operatives
decline to resume Work. The occu
pants of the houses-pay rent by the

pliance with law, was given. - !
No formal statement was made by
the I. W. W. It laf'teenerally under
