Governor Ansel's inaugural ad
dress was brief and devoted almost
entirely to the development of the
State natural resources. He advocat
ed paying moro attention to the con
servation of our lands and forests
and the development and protection
of the State's water powers, point
ing out what was being done in this
direction by other States and adver
ting to the fact that there is now
being utilized in this State 175,000
horse-power with that much more
3ret undeveloped. He specially stres
sed the importance of drainage, rec
ommending the creating of a Stato
drainage commission to investigate
and report on the best plan to re
claim over three million acres now
lying useless for want of drainage.
He also dwelt on the importance of
immediate action toward securing
better roads throughout the State,
and recommended that the Agricul
tural Department be charged with
the duty of securing information
along this line.
Governor Ansel said:
"For the second time I am here to
assume the duties and responsibili
ties of the highest State office in the
gift of the people. For a second time
by the votes of the people, I am
exalted to the position of Governor
of this great Commonwealth. I am
truly grateful for this manifestation
of confidence and esteem, and I am
fully sesible of my inability to dis
charge fully the duties incumbent
upon me without your valuable and
"South Carolina has made much
progress in moral, educational and
material lines in the past few years,
and has a bright future in store, tHe
peoyle are fully alive to the great
possibilities of even greater progress
in the years to come and we see the
signs of prosperity on every hand.
"There is now being utilized ia
this State one hundred and seventy
five thousand horse-power of water
power to generate electricity and for
other purposes. There is still about
175,000 horse-power of water power
undeveloped. My belief is that be
fore many years this power, now go
ing to waste, will be harnessed and
used to help supply the needs of our
"Our farms are producing a rea
sonable income and profit, and as the
farmer is the only producer of those
things which go to sustain life, every
inducement should be given to the
boy t? 'stay on tH farm.'
"In the manufacture of cotton we
are second, in number of spindles,
to but one State in the Union. Had
I time I could give the output of
the mills, the value of the product
and the number of employes.
"The educational institutions of
the State are sending oui ei\oh ' year
young men and women well equipped
for the battle of life, and there is
work for aft of them to ao. The
country is calling for educated young
men and women.
"I desire, at this time, to refer to
two matters, which I regard as very
important to the future progress oi
the State, and which are not men
tioned in my annual message:
"The time has come, m my judg
ment, when we should give some at
tention to the question of drainage of
our swamps and lands. There are in
this State over three million acres of
these lands that can be reclaimed at
a reasonable cost. The question nat
urally arises, what con we do? ? sug-.
gest that you appoint a drainage com
mission whose duty it shall be to got
up all the data as to where these'
land's are located; the probable cost
of reclaiming and the best plan for
paying for the drainage. Let this
commission report to the General As
sembly and t,hen intelligent action
can bo taken.
"Another important matter that
should engage our attention is the
one of 'good roads.Every good citi
zen of the State is' interested in this
vital question. Conventions and con
ferences are being held in many of
tho States to discuss it. The Gov
ernors of most of the States oro call
ing the attention of the Legislatures
to it. Some of the counties in this
Stato have gone to work and are
making good roads. That they are
needed in all the counties every one
will admit. The work that is done
should be of a permanent nature, and
it seems to me that, in order thnt the
necessary information may be ob
tained as to the best methods of mak
ing highways, and the cost of each
method, the Department of Agricul
ture should be charged with thc duty
of getting this il a. ta and reporting riic
same to you.
"In North Carolina, the duties of
road commissioner are placed upon
the State geologist; in other States,
road commissioners are appointed for
"I come to congratulate you, my
fellow citizens, upon what has been
done along all these lines, and to ask
that each of you will do his full duty
in helping forward ail that makes for
the betterment of our people.
"And now, as I take upon myself
for a second time the responsibilities
and duties of this office, I ask that
you will uphold my hands in ev?ry
good work, and, by your generous
help and co-operation, give m? that
encouragement that I have a rigt?c
to expect at your hands. By thus
working together, we shall make
South Carolina second to none in this
Union cf indestructible States."
