License Money Helps Counties.
Counties in the state have so far j
received a little over a half million
dollars from the 80 per cent, motor
vehicle license fund, this sum being
returned to the various county treas
uries as provided by law, according
to figures compiled through August
by,L. H. Thomas, secretary of the
state highway commission. Mr.

total collection to date for 1921 had
reached $727,507.06 and of the
amount $576,631.29 was accruable
to the counties.
Greenville county leads the en
tire state with $48,683.91 returned'
from the sale of licenses, while Rich
land is second with $45,231.06 and
Spartanburg is third with $38,312.11.
.Charleston comes fourth with $37
437.99 and Anderson is fifth with
In the total registration of motor
vehicles over the state Mr. Thomas
finds that the counties where the reg-1
istration has fallen off this year as
compared with 1920 are where "king
cotton" is grown more than any other
crop. The price of cotton all year has
kept many machines under the shel
ter and the figures on the sales of li
censes show that the cotton and agri
cultural counties have fallen behind
all year. ,
Greenville again is in the lead with
the total number of machines regis
tered with 6,634 automobiles and
662 trucks as compared with a regis- j
tration of 6,726 automobiles and
trucks for 1920. Richland also has
gone above last year's figur?s with
5,558 autos and 798 trucks. Spar
tanburg with 5,316 autos and 524
