South Carolina's great industry
We have received an inquir;
from the industrial departmen
of the Southern Railway Comn
pany as to commercial orchard
and truck farms in Fairfield. W
were compelled to answer tha
there were no such industries i:
the county. This ought not s<
to be. As we have frequenti;
shown before, the lower sectioi
of this county can and does gros
as fine peaches as any part o
the State. The need is for som<
one to go into the business on i
large enough scale to induct
others to fall in line. The suc
cess of such an industry depend:
upon enough going into it t<
make naoshil, the astabb'shmani
of a shipping point, which is the
first essential in making it go
when there is no local market.
There must be enough fruit and
truck grown so that there may
be daily carload shipments so as
to secure the best transportation
rates and concessions. The more
that go into these industries, the
greater the probabilities of suc
In another column will be
found a statement from Mr. Hood,
the for-ner supervisor of Fairfield,
in regard to the county's indebt
edness. The expenses of the
county for roads and bridges for
the first two years of his admin
istration, as he explains, were
much greater than ordinary on
account of the unprecedentedly
heavy rains, a fact well known
to all. All must also appreciate
the fact that the court expenses
are fixed by law and that there
is nothing that can be done by
the county boaid to lessen this
As to the outside poor it seems
that the board has been and
still is exercising a very liberal
policy. There should be a def
inite amount set aside for this
fund each year, which should be
large enough to meet the de
maids of the most deserving ca
ses. Beyond this the board
shoud not go. With its present
liberal and unlimited policy
there is great danger of the coun
; ty being imposed upon, if such
if not already the case.
The expenses of the chaingang
have necessarily increased with
the increased number of pris
oners on the same. For this
1 additional expense the county
3 should have as an asset better
r roads, which is true in many
- instaces despite the fact that
they are still so bad. What the
- county has for the chaingang e
quipments is an asset to the
- county that offsets the indebt
edness to that extent.
The point that Mr. Hood makes
in regard to the decrease of the
road tax is right to the point.
What the county loses in days
of work by this low tax being
taken advantage of means the
taking of that much out of the
treasury for the payment for a
similar amount of labor. This
road tax should be increased to
at least $2.00.
-What Mr. Hood says in re
gard to the delegation not pro.
viding the necessary levy and the
evil consequencs that must nec
essarily follow such a policy is
very true. It is not possible to
keep a debt from growing when
the outgo is more than the in
come. What the delegation would
have done could it have known
the true financial condition of
the county is another question.
It~ is for his failure and inability
to furnish them with an intel
ligent and definite statement,
giving this important informa
tion, that Mr. Hood comes im
Ifor the full measure of criticism
'that such a careless system of
'book-keeping is sure to bring
sooner or later. And it is that
the people of the county may
know just where they are at fi
~nancially that it is so important
that a thorough examination o:
the books of all the county pficers
be made at this time. The ac
tion of the grand jury in this
very vital matter is awaited wit.b

is right at our expense."
