Acting upon a suggestion from Gen. M. L. Bonham, Mayor J. iL God frey has called upon the pastors o; the churches in tho city and the Chamber of Commerce to appoint representatives for the formation ct a general relief committee, whose duty it shall be to adopt and put into execution measures looking toward tb? relief of suffering in the city ot Anderson brought about by the gen eral business devresslon existing all over the country. Aa soon as Mayor Godfrey has been Informed, of the appointments be will call a meeting of the committee, in order that measures to bo followed may be taken up at the earliest date possible. As to what plans the com mittee will adopt, nothing is known as yet. Several schemes have boen suggested, but which one of these will be chosen will not be known until the committee bas held a meet ing. The letter from General Bonham which han prompted Mayor Godfry to call for the appointment of these committeemen is as follows: "I was sorry I could not attend the meeting last night at the Chamber of Commerce becausd 1 am much Inter ested In the organisation of a relief committee to look after the cases of destitution and want In our city and cases which are almost certain to arise during tho hard winter which the weather prophets ? predict. It seems to mo* that we ought to have a large relief committee co.npisting ot those appointed by the Chamber of Commerce, by the churches and by you as mayor. This committee could divide tho city into districts and look out for the caaes of deserving people who would not themselves seek char ity. In order that thia committee may do effective work it must have a fund. I : presume the city would make a do nation to that end' and thc churches would take up collections and private individuals would contitbute, but you need more than that and ! suggest that the charitably Inclined should set to work to raise th ?ve funds in the ways known to tho earnest and zealous women cf the community and the broad minded charitable men. Bub King would get up a minstrel sbow that would rival Al Fields' and allvwould go and pay double prices in the name of charity and get our mon ey'? worth in laughter. I simply sug gest these ways of reaching an end which we all have very much at heart. Ag I said In a former communication, I have. known the people of Ander son for 20 years and a more generous, charitable people never lived and 1 do not doubt that the response ot tho people to your appeal would bc a lib eral ono. I suggest that you ask the pastors of the diuerent churches to t?::e action in this matter by naming the -representatives of their churches to act on this committee and asking for contributions to this fund. This general committee as I have suggest ed, ought to meet and organize im mediately.

Was Burned I Henrietta McGowan Met Horrible Death at Horne Yes terday. Upon returning to ber bouse after an absence of an hour yesterday morning, a granddaughter of Hen rietta McGowan found the latter had been burned to death. An 18-months old grandchild of Henrietta's, who was left with the woman, was also burned but it is not thought that these injuries will prove fatal. Henrietta McGowan was the wife of Henry McGowan, one ot tho moat highly respected negroes of the coun ty, and lived on the Greenville road, something like a mile from the city. The old woman and the young grand child w?re left lu th? ?uuuo aDout noon by another granddaughter. Within an hour or so the latter re turned and fou>~-l the old woman dead upon the floor. The clothing had been burned from the body and indi cations pointed to ber having been dead several minutes. It is supposed that Henrietta Mc Gowan, who was some 65 years of age and in bad health, had gone too close to the fire; that the clothing caught fire and she waa too feeble to extin guish the flames before they had burned her fatally. The flames did not spread and ' the house was not damaged in the slightest. A place in the carpet and some rugs on thc floor were destroyed. f&SBBS??BBSBSBBBSISB?BSSBSSS?S?S^ LOW PRICES For High Grade Meato For Cash Only Bet t Ribs.Se Neck- Roast or Steak.10c Chuci Roast or Steak.... 19 l-2c Short Rib Steak or Roast.. ..15c T-L jiu Steak or Roast .. . .17 l-2e Hoart Round Steak or Roast 20c All good mixed Pork and Beef Sausage.12 1-2?

BRUCE DENTIST NOMINES FOR COUNTY COMMISIONERS WERE LEFT OFF THE TICKET THEREFORE ANDERSON HAS NO DULY ELECTED COM MISSION CAN BE RIGHTED Suggested That Legislature Can Pas? Bfll Declaring Them A flurry was created Ia ?oe office of the county au por vinor yesterday when the morning'a mall brought a letter from Secretary of State R. M. Mc- I Cown which meana that Anderson County ls without county commission- j era for the ensuing term, although four men were nominated for those positions in the Demo- ratle primary of laat August. Looked at from one standpoint, the matter appeared to be a rather serious one; but viewed from another, it seemed to be but merely the failure to comply with a technical point of law. It la quite probable, however, that the whole matter will be cleared up as soon as the legisla ture meeta, for a bill will likely be passed rectifying the error. At any rate, Senator J. L. Sherard ls quoted as having assured tbe commissioners elect that they need have no fears of their not having been elected and their not getting to serve their term of office. Only an Error, Several days ago Supervisor J. Mack King received from the secre tary of state a blank form to be filled out for his retention hi office for an other year. Mr. King complied with the requeat and upon aeelng aome ot the commiB8ionera-elect a few days later Inquired If they had received similar bianka from the secretary of state. When informed that they had rocelved no such blanks, Supervisor King instructed Clerk J. S. Acker to write the secretary of state inquiring why tho sommiRsloners-elect had not received the necessary bianka to fill out. Supervisor King yesterday morning received the following letter in reply from the secretary of state: "The return of the county board of canvassers for Anderson County, as made to the State board of canvass ers, doea not ahow the election of county commissioners for tho county of Anderson. Such a report should be made by the county board of canvass ers and filed tn thia office aa evidence tbat an election was held for said of ficers at the general election Novem ber 3, 1914, giving Ute name? and number of votea cast for each of said countv commissioners. "With this explanation yon cati see why noticea havV not been aent to the parties named In your letter. Af ter they have been declared elected they must qualify by filing the re quired bond properlv executed and also subscribed to the constitutional oath of office." Left Off Ticket I'pon Investigation lt developed that the namea ot the Democratic nominees for county commissioners wfire left off the ticket which was vot ed In the general election of Novem ber 3. The record of 8. Dean Pear man, chairman of the county execu tive committee, show that he for warded to the secretary of the state executive commi'-'ee the names of all the Democratic . nominees in thia county. Therefor*, it appears that the error io le'.vlng the namea of the nominees for county commissioners off the general election ticket must have occurred in the office of the secretary of the State executive com mittee. Caa Pass BUL < It has been suggested thut the gen eral assembly can pasa a Joint resolu tion declaring the four nominees for commissioners to be duly elected of ficers and requesting Governor Man ning to so commission them. The commissioners-elect are: J. Lawrence McGee. 1st district; J. R. Culberson, 2nd district; W. A. Spearman. 3rd district: R. D. Smith. 4th district Until these four men have been de clared commissioners 'for Anderson County the duties of the office will continue to be performed by T. M. VandWar and J. M. Dunlap, at pres ent commissioners. Business Fine Merchants Report Satisfactory Sale? Despite Inclemency of Weather. Despite Gie inclemency of the weather and the cry. of hard timee. merchants generally enjoyed a good day's business yeaterday, according to reports from several of them. WUIle the business done ls probably not up to that which waa done this time last year, yet a considerable amount nf buying la being done. There are sever al more shopping days before Christ mas Day, and it ts quite probable that tho remalnulng ones will bo quite bnsy for the retail merchants. Those places y/iicb handle speical liaes of Christmas foods seemed to be doing a thriving business yester day. Especially was thia the case with the jewelry atores, and Judging from the number of gifts whleh were par chased it would seem that people of moderate means are' going to have about as good a Christmas as ever, or at least a great deal more than they think they aro going to turva, War Time Prices For the Next Week (From Dec. 18th to Dec. 25th.)
