A WOULD ISSUE BONDS.
? Citizens in Washing ton and Meri
r wether Tows hip n Interested
in Building Highway to
t The following appeared in the Au
t gusta Chronicle last week, being an
j interview with Mr. H. C. Middleton
- who is public spirited and deeply
[ interested in road improvement,
; having agitated the question for a
> number of years:
. "There is considerable interest in
r Washington and Meriwether town
- ships in Edgefield county across the
? river in favor of the issuance of
- township bonds for the building
- of a main graded highway from
j about Parksville, S. C., 30 miles np
the river, to the county line, about
i six miles above Augusta, aud a
- branch or main road through the
? northern and eastern part of Meri
. wether township.
I i "We have a fertile and attractive
country," said a resident of that sec
- tion yesterday, "but because of our
i bad roads our section is behind in
, development Usually we can haul
\ only two bales of cotton with two
? mules to Augusta, to market. We
r want amain market road over which
we and stangers can travel with ra
pidity and pleasure. But we have
come to the conclusion it is imprac
ticable for our coun1;y to build them
for us, so we are considering build
ing" them ourselves by issuing town
ship bonds. We want roads while,
we are living-they will do us very
little good after we aro dead. And
a good many favor the early issuing
of bonds to do it. By that method
we can let the construction of the
roads out by contract and in 18
mouths or two years have them com
pleted and be riding over them.
That is what we want.
"We are merely discussing the
subject now. If a majority of our
voters come to favor the idea, we
can hold an election and have the
whole thing through with and the
road work begun in les? than a year
"Our county is hilly; our roads
were located a hundred years ago
without engineering, and run up and
down hill; the roads consequently
wash and are usually pretty bad.
"The idea among thos? who have
approved the matter so far is to first
have the main highway properly
laid out, by an experienced highway
engineer'from the north, so as to
avoid steep places as much possible,
and to save as much work and cost
of constuction as possible, at the
same time.serving the-townships in
the best manner. We want to de
fer to expert1 knowledge; then to
grade this main road. It would
run. from- about two . miles ^ above
Parksville to Fox's cr?ele (the* Aiken
county line),about six miles above.
Augusta. Taken a properly located
branch, or an additional road would
be built into the eastern and north
ern part of Meriwether township.
"We believe that $50,000 will do
this grading pretty well. It would
not give us a road su:rfaced with
gravel or fine rock, but a fine graded
road. The bonds can be issued for
twenty-five years and placed at 5
per cent. We think we can arrange
it so that we will have ta pay only
$10,000 to $15,000 of the principal
at the end of twenty-five years, and
re-issue the balance for another
twenty-five years, etc., as'many cities
do-taking fifty or more years to
pay the principal-the cost of the
roads. Certainly, if we can place
the bonds now we can place the
greater part of the amount in new
bonds twenty-five years from now
to pay the old ones. Paying them
gradually in this way, the burden
will be light. If an issue of $50,000
will do it, the interest of $2,500
would be about $1,250 for each
township, and probably $250 each
per annum on the principal, amount
ing to a total of about $1,500 a year
to be raised in each township.
This will be a small amount compar
ed to what we will "save.in v *r haul
ing besides bringing about the de
velopment of our section.
"We have very fine agricultural
lands-they are oak and hickory
red lands, in the main and capable
of the highest cultivation. Yet the
section is scarcely populated. It is
all because of the bad roads.
"Help us to ag'tate this subject
and get it before our people for their
thoughtful consideration. Town
ship road building is perfectly prac
ticable. North and West. The re
sult is the same as if the county is
sued bonds and improved the roads
of the entire county-the pro rata.,
for each township would in the end
rest upon the township.. Of course,
the county should agree to still give
the township its pro rata of good
road work after they have gone< to
this extra expense and, we have no
doubt our county of Edg?field will
do this. We will ask Aiken county
to help us by continuing the graded
roads to Augusta through its terri
tory. All the upper portion of the
state uses these roads in getting to
Augusta. In the old days Abbeville
Anderson and even North Carolina
used them. We feel sure of general
co-operation if we can begin."
