Supervisor A. A. Edmunds has
a very meaty article in this issue
that should be read and pondered
by the taxpayers. The new supervi
sor is making good rapidly. The
Advertiser receives favorable reports
from differenisections of the county
concerning the v\ork he is doing on
the public roads.
Persons who have either thought
lessly or maliciously changed the
reading of notices that were posted
in the post ofliue so as to pervert
their nn-ariing had better take heed.
Such acts are distinct violations of
the United States laws and the guil
ty persons if apprehended will
suffer the penalty' of the law. 'tA
word of warning should be sufficient.
k>ear school children, do not fail
to let your names accompany your
school letters. The Advertiser re
ceived a newsy, neatly written letter
this week from the Colliers school
but we could not publish it because
no name accompanied it. Another
thing, always send your letters in
early. Occasionally the letters are
received too late for publication.

A Statement From Supervisor
To the Peepie of Edgefield Coun
Having read the able charge of
Judge Bowman to the grand jury
and the presentment of the grand
jury of Edgefield county and after
"ruminatii.g thereupon," as Bill
Arp would bay, I feel it my duty as
an officer of eaid county to give an
account of myself.
First, let me state that I have di
vided the handful of prisoners left
between Mr. G. P. Sawyer and Mr.
M. A. Walker. Mr. Sawyer is sta
tioned at Shaw's Mill while Mr.
Walker is at Republican church.
Since Christmas we have had five
convicts, whose time have expired
and two who have been pardoned
and we only got two out of the
March court. So you can see that
some other means of working pu blic
roads and doing public work will
have to be resorted to if this state
of affairs continues.
1 had already visited th? bridges
mentioned by the grand jury and
am already making arrange
ments for their repairs. I note the
grand jury's resolution to vs iden
roads, lt is and has been my pur
pose to start two gangs. One to
doing emergency work over coun
ty and the other to commence to
widen roads beginning at county
seat and going out for a few miles
and then at other towns in county
doing the same. But I fancy there
will be several Supervisors to fol
low me befor? all the roads in the
county will be widened with pres
ent system and the piesent facilities
With the conditions that exist in
Edgefield county to-day it will only
be a short time before we will not
have any chain gang at all. Just one
day last week one ol' our best work
ing prisoners was pardoned and
there are petitions in existence for
the pardon for three or four more
that I know of.
How why is thie.? Is it because
people believe the prisoners are bc
ing ill treated and poorly fed? If
eo, I iuvitc them to the camp to see
for themselves. Or is it because
the people are short of labor in
their fields, and that is their only
resort to get hands?
Just a few suggestions and I will
close* this rigamarule. First, let
rae suggest that the people in the
different communities cultivate and
manifest more public spirit like
the people of lower Meriwether
have done in the past two weeks.
By coming together and helping
to improve their roads free of
Second, That the white people
of the county will assist thc Super
visor by finding gullies in their
fields in which to dump their trash,
brush, briars, logs and rocks, in
stead of in the road ditches, there
by tilling up their, own gullies and
setting an example to thc more ig
norant race, because every white
man ought to know that il is
against the law.
Third, Let. we office holders ol'
Edgefield county be more particu
lar in the purchase of supplies for
our office and only purchase such as
we are obliged to have-and in giv
ing out matters for publication that
we comply strictly with the law.
Fourth, Thai the grand jurors
and citizens ol' Edgefield county
can well, in as much as we have an
extra officer to pay SGU.00 per
month, that they assist this officer
by notifying the Sheriff of any
lawlessness that may be going on
in their community, and not, it'
the sheriff or deputy should hap
pen along, to point them to some
lawlessness going on "'over yonder'*
when the same lawlessness is going
on, in their own community, proba
bly on their own plantation and
they arc aware ol' it.
Fifth, Let the people who have
heretofore cursed and abused hm
excellency, Gov. Blease for pardon
ing prisoners cease to "cuss" the
governor while they have petitions
in iheir own pockets for pardons
for criminals themselves.
Sixth, Let thc merchants ol'
Edgefield county be more particu
lar in taking mortgages ol stock
that has already been mortgaged,
or does not exist, thereby encour
aging lawlessness, and then failing
to see that the criminals are punish
ed instead ot settling it other ways.
These are a few of the many sug
gestions that I would like to make.
But for fear that I am trying the
paiience of the public 1 will close
with one more suggestion.
That everybody who is entitled
to pay road tax will do so, as thin
is the last week in which they can
pay. Alter this week I will begin
to warn delinquents, and will con
tinue to do so throughout the year.
Where they fail to work I will have
ihem returned to magistrates and be
sides taking a list bf such per
sons I will see that the magistrates
docket and properly dispose of
these cases before approving- their
With the permission of the edi
tor I will give a list of names of
people who helped to improve the
roads in Meriwether township, in
next week's issue.
