Believes in the Future of Ander

Always Keep Step.
Pres. Z. V. Taylor, of the Southern
Public Utilities Company, spent a few
hours in the city yesterday, having
come over from Greenvile. He has
been on a tour of inspection, having
visited several of the cities and towns
of thiB State. He will go next week
to Winston-Salem, N C" and other
North Carolina points, and then on to
New York for a brief visit, returning
to Charlotte in time for the big an
nual supper to the employes of his
company, and associated companies,
which will be held there on the even
ing of the 26th inst.
When seen by a representative of
The Intelligencer, Mr Taylor express
ed himself as being well pleased with
the outcome of the recent agitation
here relative to the franchise matter.
He said that he did not welcome, of
course, criticism at any time, but
tbat in thlB case he was glad there
had been so much discussion of the
franchise matter, for it was educa
tional and he felt that the people now
understood what a good contract the
city really has; that he was delighted
to know that the people of the etty
would not stand for the setting aside
of a contract entered Into by the etty
under a former administration.
Anderson's Good Contract.
"Public service companies," said
Mr. Taylor, "seldom have any ono to
speak for them, and the Information
the people get concerning their work
comes from those opposed to their
operation. They feel that there is al
j ways 'some nigger lp the woodpile.'
I But the people of Anderson should
j realise that' they ha*e the best con
tract they- could have, better than
. most places, or than Mmost any otlt,
I er place," declared Mr. Taylor. "Why,
the rale for lights in Anderson is 20
per cent, less than in Columbia, and
40 per cent less for water than in the
city of Charlotte, which 1s a rn un lei

Speaking of Anderson's white way, 11
Mr. Taylor made the assertion that ' 1
there is not a town in the United <
States, HO far us be kuew, that had ]
a white way at all comparable to An- ! i
derson and Charlotte, that had been ' :
Installed by the company furnishing ? <

tiona. ? Tills is the second city in j ]
which his company has installed a ' i
white way, the other one being Char- <
lotte, N. C. Atlanta assessed the prop- 1
erty owners to pay for the Installa- .
lion, but his company decided that it
could be done by them, and Charlotte
was the first city In which they tried '
the experiment. Anderson was the 1
second. I
In Favor of Paving.
"Will your company favor the bond
issue for paving?" was asked Mr. 1
Taylor. i

will do all In Us power to promote a <

lyatem, sad the net returns from tho
operation of thia system in Anderson
would not pave a city block in a year.
S'ow." continued Mr. Taylor, "a small
Eoncern could not get financial assist
ance at such a time to put into pav
ing, aud we have to borrow IV, but you
:an say to your peoplo that we ahall
push the street paving and shall keep
step with the progressive citizens of
your town on this paving proposition.
Dur company has spent $275,000 In
street paving in Charlotte ?luring the
past three years, and we have been
glad to do lt. Wc shall be glad to do
the same thing for Anderson
that we have done for Charlotte," de
clared Mr. Taylor.
Kio IU Feeling)
"How does your company feel to
ward Anderson in view ot the recent
light that luis been 'made here relative
to the franchise matter?" Mr. Taylor
waa asked.
"That matter haa not affected the
feeling we have for Anderson in the
slightest degree. We feel Just aa
kindly towards Anderson today aa wc
ever did. We shall give the town our
earnest aupport and we do not think
that there Is any one in the city that
will go further for the good of An
weraon than we will. Why, do you
know that we are perhaps aa large a
taxpayer as there la In the city?" aaid
Mr. Taylor. "Why should we, there
fore, wish to throttle the city? Why,
we wouldn't own a public aervlce cor
poration in a dead town. I believe
in tho future of Anderson. You have
here some of the biggest and most
progressive men I haue ever known,
?md with these men working for the
upbuilding of your city it will be sure
to grow. The Southern Public Utili
ties Company will keep step with you
In progressive matters," said Mr.
Taylor.
