Road Discussion Being Map
Preparations for the taking over
of roads by the state highway com
mission in a number of counties, as
authorized by the recent highway
act and which is now actually being
put in operation, are being complet
ed by T. H. Thomas, secretary of the
commission, and Charles H. Moore
field, engineer. To take over the
roads under state maintenance'
means that the commission must
have the full cooperation of coun
ty officials and all persons interest
ed in better roads.
The commission is able to main
tain these roads only when they are
under the state system, connecting
the various county seats, and will
not give any attention to other high
ways .The plan now is to hold meet
ings in every congressional district,
possibly two or three in some dis
tricts, and to invite all interested in
roads to attend these hearings.' Coun
ty officials, of course, will be expect
ed to be on hand from their respec
tive counties. Members of the state
highway commission and district en
gineers will be on hand to talk over
the needs of the district and coun
First at Anderson.
After these meetings have been
held all over the state it is believed
that very little trouble will be ex
perienced in taking over the roads
from the counties in all sections of
South Carolina. Letters giving facts
about the meetings and calling on all
those who have a desire to see bet
ter roads in this state have been sent
out by Mr. Thomas and he expects
all the conferences to be well attend
ed. The first conference of this kind
will be held in the court bouse at
Anderson, Monday, August 2 from
10 o'clock in the morning until 1
o'clock in the afternoon.
The second meeting is scheduled
for Greenwood at the court house,
. on Tuesday, August 3rd, from 10
a. m. to 1 p. m.
Wednesday, August 4> the session
will be at Greenville and Thursday,
August 5, the meeting will be at
Friday, August 6, the conference
will be at Rock Hill and Saturday,
at the court house at Camden. Simi
lar meetings are being arranged for
all the congressional districts and a
large number of county seats. Be
low is a copy of the letter sent out
to county officials in the Third dis
trict, the others being similar except
for the dates and places of meeting:
"Under the recent act of the legis
lature creating a state highway de
partment, there is contained the fol
"The said state highway commis
sion shall, under the advice of the
state highway engineer, lay out a
system of connecting highways
throughout the state, connecting
every county seat within the state
and covering such main avenues of
travel and traffic as the said highway
commission" may deem advisable
"Before complying with the above
provision of the act the department
deems it advisable to hold a public
hearing in each of the seven congres
sional districts of the state, to which
will be invited all parties who may
toe interested in the matter. A tenta
tive state system was laid out by the
.former highway department after
long study and careful considera
tion, and as a basis of discussion this
tentative system will be used. Maps
of this lay out may be obtained at
the office of the county supervisor of
roads of every county.
"In pursuance of the above pur
pose of the state highway commis
sion will hold a hearing in the coun
ty court house in the city of Ander
son on Monday, August 2, 1920,
from 10 a. m. to 1 p. m., and a fur
ther bearing in the county court
house at Greenwood on Tuesday, Au
gust 3, 1920, from 10 a. m. to 1 p.
m., and anyone in the Third congres
sional district who believes that the
roads in that district as laid out on
the said map ought to be changed is
invited to appear at said times and
places and state to the said commis
.sion the change proposed, giving the
Inasmuch as the department is
charged with the duty of laying out
a state system connecting the coun
ty seats and the roads of adjoining
states, only such roads as could con
sistently and properly be incorporat
ed in such a system can be taken in
to consideration.-The State.
Suffered Intense Pain.
"A few years ago when visiting
relatives in Michigan something I
?had eaten brought on an attack of
.cholera morbus" writes Mrs. Celesta
McVicker, Macon, Mo. "I suffered
intense pain and had to go to bed. I
got a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic
and Diarrhoea Remedy and one dose
relieved the pain wonderfully. I only
took two or three doses but they did
Republicans Plan to Invade
Washington, July 25.-Just as
predicted in this correspondence on
frequent occasions, the movement to
break the "solid South" has begun
here. Months ago talks began to be
heard in the national capitol look
ing toward the end of wrecking the
South's Democratic hold and of
planting there a white Republican
party. Today the matter took con
It has become known here that re
cently many letters have come to Re
publican leaders asking that some
thing be done to wrench the political
machinery from the Democrats of
the South in order that chances of
Republican victory might be enhanc
ed. It has been suggested that Repub
lican strongholds be opened in sever
al of the leading cities of the South,
to which chairman Hayes is said to
have already given his consent and
approval. The location of these cities
is now said to be the only question
that is bothering the leaders and
that they have practically named
South Carolina as one of the places
where efforts will be commenced to
break the "solid South."
The Republicans of the South have
been informed by Henry L. John
son of Georgia and other men of the
party, that the only way to rid that
section of what they term the "Dem
ocratic blight' is for the Republican
leaders to busy themselves.
Marion Butler of Washington, for
mer Populist-Republican senator
from North Carolina, dispatched the
following telegram to Chairman
"Southern Republican headquar
ters should be established because
every other section has been accord
ed separate headquarters especially
equipped to meet the different con
ditions. Conditions in the East and
"Second: A remarkable Republi
can opportunity has arisen. Our
whole citizenship are descendants of
Revolutionary ancestors. They are
deeply aroused over the Democratic
attempt to surrender the republic.
They speak of the 'Arch Tory' in the
White House. Every soldier boy is a
crusader for Americanism. This is
the climax to a growing dissatisfac
tion against eight years of monu
mental maladministration. In North
Carolina these conditions are accen
tuated by a deep resentment against
a new odious state taxation scheme.
"Third; With impending reduction
of Southern representation, South
ern Republicans desire and deserve
this helpful recognition to enable
them to seize this opportunity atid to
emancipate themselves and all our
people from the blight of Democrat
ic rule. The South needs the Repub
lican party and the party needs the
South. What is needed is a distinct
Southern headquarters managed by
those who know every phase of
Southern conditions, and located at
some point in the heart of the
Marion Butler, author of the
above telegram, is well known in Re
publican circles in the South and was
prominent as a Populist leader in the
United States senate when that cult
was rampant in many sections of the
country in the early 90's and just
prior thereto. But when the pendu
lum swung back Butler was, of
course, deposed from the senate and
his place filled by a Democrat from
For many years Butler has been
a Washington lawyer and a G. 0. P.
follower and his telegram to Chair
man Hays should be read with inter

an indication regarding what plans
may be on foot to break up the "sol
Records Broken in Automo
South Carolinians own more auto

While the exact number of ma
chines is not to be computed from
these figures, this is the nearest ap
proach to the correct total that can
be had at this time. Highway offi
cials estimate that there have been
possibly 1,000 duplications of li
censes from losses by the owners.
This would bring the total today to
83,536, which is by far the largest
number of cars ever registered in the
state. Last year 70,142 licenses were
sold by the commission. Officials of
the department believe the total
would be materially increased if
