J. Ii. M IMS, - - - EDITOR.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25, 1902.
Some member of the sena
torial troupe either has a wee
small bit of campaign fund or
supposes that the editor of
this'paper is on the threshold
of the poor house, We will
live on blackberries and
"park" or branch water be
fore we will boost a senator
ial candidate to the tune of
one dollar a column. Such ?
proposition has been made us.
Chairman Jones, the gener
alissimo o f : Democracy in
South Carolina, has ordered
that the county dispenser can
.not be elected either . in the
primary or by separate box.
Thus through political boss
ism the Democratic conven
tion (not Col. Jones) deprives
the people of Edgefield coun
ty of that which i t should
vouchsafe to them, namely:
the right to choose by popu
lar ballot the officers who
shall serve them within the
borders of the county. Truly,
the yoke of bossism is galling.
While THE ADVERTISER,
unalterably and uncondition
ally, favors the election of
county dispenser by the peo
pie we would say, first, last
and always, submit to consti
tuted authority. We predict,
however, that before manj
campaigns come and gc
Edgefied county will elect hei
dispenser or cast a bomb ir
the camp of the politicians
putting them to confusion.
The stump speakers ar<
-abroad in the land. Then
are almost more speaker
than stumps, being sixty od(
this campaign is being con
The present campaign dif
fers from those of recent year
in three particulars, ist. Th<
attendance upon the meeting*
is small. The audience is com
posed more largely of ladies
than is usually the case. The
people have been so often de
ceived by the promises of
politicians, which were made
to be broken,that they are not
disposed to give them their
time when other matters
need attention. This is one
year, the first in many, in
which the listeners receive
some real benefit.
2nd. The demeanor or the
. manner in which the candi
dates conduct themselves is
worthy of mention. Hereto
fore the speakers have reared,
snorted and cavorted in a way
that was very unbecoming.
They "cussed" their oppon
ents instead of discussing the
issues that were paramount.
Not so today; all of them are
deporting themselves as gen
tlemen. If there are any who
are not they are on their best
behavior and try to make the
audience believe they are gen
3rd. Most of the speeches
contain much food for thought
This indicates that our people
are becoming more intelligent
year-by year and the candi
dates dare not indulge in the
political platitudes that were
che stock in trade of the bla
tant demagogues of a few
years ago. Maybe we will
yet experience some more of
those good old times that ex
isted in our state before the
reign of the demagogues.
Twelve meetings have been
held ai which every speaker
claimed the crowd. Some
are gaining ground and some
are losing. Some stock is at
a premium and some at a dis

Correspondence of Edgefield AdTcrtiser.
(continued from last issue.)
The decrease-iii value of land in
Edgefield is still going on. The
Bpecial reason we,, are getting BO
poor that we can't fix the roads, is
because the roads need fixing. It
is useless look for better times-a
time when we will be better able to
work on the roads-land values
will get worse - we shall be leBS
able as time goes on , if wi? put
this work off. It is not prosperity
that brings good roads but good
roads bring prosperity. If we want
io get proeporous therefore we
shall have to go to work OT the
roads- that is the iirst requisite.
Thinking people will see this when
they realize that nearly every ton
of hauling in Edgefiold county
costs 35c on every mile hauled,
U. S. governn. ent estimates for our
class of roads) when it should cost
only from 7c to 10c. This is on
every mile hauled it should be re
membered. The U. S.goverument
says in the bad road bectious of
the country the excessive cost of
hauling is equal to one fourth of
the "total home value of the pro
ducts." Edgefield raised in 1900
25,000 bales of cotton, which at $40
per bale is equivalent to $1,000,000
worth of cotton. If the excess cost
of hauling ou this was $250,000 we
can see how we are throwing away
money, or failing to make money.
ThiB probably means all the haul
ing c mnected with the cotton
hauling the supplies to raise- it'etc
I have pointed out that we buy in
Edgefield $25,000 to $30,000 worth
of vehicles every year. es:imatod
from the tax- books, and since
our vehicles are bumped and shak
en to pieces and do not live half
their time, it is plaiu that we speud
$10,000 L$L2,000 at least more
annually for vehicles than we
would on good roads. It is an es
tablished fact that vehiol s on
good roads last twice as long as
they do on bad roads. We ship
in much lumber, meal, flour, etc.,
on railroad because it is too costly
to seud to our country lumber and
meal and flour mills. Our money
goes out of the county, instead of
to our own people who need it, who
are in the lumber, fl >ur and meal
business. Valuable timber landB
go begging, except near the rail
roads ; we buy our meal and flour
instead of raising i : ; we stick to
cotton and cannot diversify ; few
dairies; little vegetable farming,
and so leak at every pore on ac
couut of oui terrible system of bad
roads. No wonder we are poor.
Gen. Butler says in his address:
"If I had my way 1 would appoint
a competent civil engineer for ev
ery county, or one for two or three
of the smaller counties." This is
what we should do in Edgefield
-o-.- ami ii J uo.
And make up our mind, as they
are doing elsewhere, to pay for
what is neceesary, before we are too
poor to pay at all. Land in Rich
mond County, Ga., so Judge VV. P.
Eve of that county was telling the
other day, that in 1880 would sell
for only $6 an acre, now after good
gravel roads had been put tbrrugh
them sold as high as $75 an acre,
and the people were giving rights
of way and begging him to put
roads through their land. The
U .S. Goverment says the average
increase iu prices of land in good
road sections, after wide inquiry,
proves to be $6 per acre. Every
single ihing raised on this land is
raised at|greater profit. This en
riches.the county. Every man,
woman and child in Edgefield
would de enriched by the building
of good, modern road* far in excess
of what.it would cost-some eight
or ten times what it wou'd cost
