Nov. 5 – J.H. Mellett will take the mayor’s office on Jan. 1, 1914. The mayor-elect said last night that he would arrange his business affairs so that he can devote all of his time to the mayor’s office. “The election is over and I wish to say,” continued the mayor-elect, “that I have no feeling against those who opposed me. Mr. Ryan made a fine race – a splendid campaign.”

Nov. 6 – All lunch and popcorn men who have wagons on streets of Anderson have been ordered by Superintendent of Police Williamson to keep moving and not occupy one corner all day. It is stated that merchants are complaining about the men remaining in one place.
