OUR ?IJBLlJ IllflAY
THE COST OF THE PRESENT SYSTEM
OF ROADS IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Senater Butler Gives some Interesting Facts
About the Enormous Cost of Supporting
the Reads of the State, and Ponts out
Somel of the Causes from which the
News and Courier.
EDGEFIELD, July 23.-The popu
lation of South Carolina is, in
round numbers, about one million,
or was by the Census of 1880. In
the ratio of five to one this would
give us 200,000 voters. Now the
question is, are there as many per
sons liable to road duty as there
are voters? The road age is from
16 to 50. The voting age is from
21, upwards. Will the class from
16 to 21, equal the - class from
50 upwards? I should answer
in the affrmative, or very near
ly so, and if so, the number of
voters and road-workers must be
very nearly equal. But we must
deduct all persons exempt from
r)ad duty under the law. They
will, perhaps. number one hundred
in each county or 3,300. We will
put the number of "exempts" at
4,000. We must deduct all per
sons of the road age, in cities and
towns. These we can get with reas
onable accuracy from the census
of 1880, and amounted then to
about 130,000, and I shall base my
estimates on the status of that year.
In the same ratio of five to one,
this would give us 26,000 voters in
the cities and towns, and if my
comparison is correct the same
number of road workers with the
4,000 'exempts" we shall have 30,
000 to deduct from the 200,000,
leaving 170,000 liable to road duty.
Let us put it at 150,000. These
150,000 men are required by law to
work on the puble roads "not less
than three nor more than twelve
days" in each year. If they work
the maximum number of days, and
their services should be valued at
one dollar per day-and that is
the price fixed by the law-makers
we shall have 150,000 multiplied by
twelve, amounting to $1,800,000 for
one year. Suppose they average
six days annually, the cost would
$ 00,000. If a dollar a day is too
such, then the law is wrong. Esti
mate it at fifty cents a day and for
the twelve days the value of the
labor would be $900,000 and for
six days $45,000.
But it may be said, doubtless
will be said, this is not a sound ar
gument or fair calculation as to the
annual cost of public roads; that
the people do this work when they
can, perhaps, do nothing else, and is
a contribution in kind to the public
service and, therefore, does not cost
the amounts specified. I only
adopt the measure of value estab
lished by the people themselves
through their representatives. The
labor is worth that much, and in
contemplation of law is expended
upon the highways, and, if so ex
pended, is taken out of the pro
ductive power of the people of the
State, and is therefore, lost to other
channels. I have seen the time
when road hands summoned out of
the fields were worth a dollar a day
to the crops, and I insist it is a le
gitimate estimate in calculating the
cost of maintaining the' hig'h-ways.
If not bestowed upon the roads this
labor would or should be utilized
elsewhere so as to be worth a dollar
a ay to tho mnutries of the State.
are very bad they will not last
longer than three years. Let us
suppose the average cost on these
vehicles is $5 each. Is that too
much or too little? If correct, they
cost annually $50,000. Now, it is
safe to assume that if the roads
were made good the average life of
a vehicle would be increased to ten
years and the annual repairs not
more than $2 50. I think this
would be within bounds, if the for
mer premise is correct. Here alone
would be a saving $25,000 in cash
annually in the matter of repairs,
besides an enormous amount by
reason of the increased longevity
of the vehicles. This is a tax that
comes out of the pockets of the
people every year that might just as
well be saved by the exercise of
more practical wisdom and fore
sight in working our public roads.
I am satisfied on further reflection
and injuiry I have placed the num
ber of vehicles far to low. There
must be one hundred thousand
vehicles in the state.
It seems to me these are ques
tions well worthy of earnest con
sideration. They are not vagaries
indulged in for entertainment,
but propositions coming within the
scope of every man's experience.
It is not claimed that they are ac
curate, but serve to illustrate the
point I make and to show that we
pay heavily for bad roads which
could be immeasurably improved
by the judicious outlay of much less
In an enterprising go-ahead coun
try time is money where the people
are active, industrious, vigilant,
progressive. If time is money,
what vast sums are expended upon
our public roads? Here is another
tax-heavy tax. Time -spent pull
ing and hauling, "geeng and haw
ing," swearing and complaining,
is very unprofitably spent. There
are many sections of twenty miles
of road in Edgefield County, and
no doubt in other countries, that
cannot be travelled in winter in
less than three, sometimes four
hours, whereas not more than an
hour and a half ought to be required,
and they can be made so that not
more than an hour and a half would
be required. Would it not be better
to repair the roads and save this
time to be used more profitably and
avoid the tortune of mind and body
and loss of vital energy and force?
It would seem so.
I might cite other facts showing
the extravagant cost of our road
system, but they would only be
eumulative. If your roads cost
the one-half, or the one-fourth, or
the one-tenth of the amounts above
stated, they would be the most ex
pensive nuisances that any people
ever supported. But I have not
overstated it. I have not in
cluded the annual tax we pay
for the building and repair of
bridges, which is a tax upon
proper4y, and in the aggregate for
the whole State must reach a large
sum, and which I cannot give be
cause my inquiries on that point
have not yet been answered. I
have not referred to the increased
expense to which every man is
subjected in the additional horse
power he must use to transport his
family and products over the hills
and gullies and through the mud and
slush he encounters in the public
roads. Two mules will haul four
bales of cotton over a properly lo
cated, well-graded and well-worked
road as readily as four mules' now
get along with the same load. Ap
ply this proportion to the internal
commerce and transportation of
this State, carried on by horse
power, and some idea may be
formed of its extent. This is a
part of the cost the people pay to
wards, maintaining their public
highways, and no insignifint part.
It might be saved by good roads.
M. C. BUTLER.
There is a man living in Georgia
at the age of seventy-five years
whose father was 101 years old
when the former was born, and
who lived to accompany him to the
polls to cast his first vote. The
son now splits rails, builds fences,
digs goobers and bids fair to live
as long as his father.
It is easy to make the~ dull boy
smart. Cut .his finger and apply
salt water.-hiladielphia Herald.
One million eight hundred thousand
dollars is a large sum of money, and
if collected annually and judicious
ly expended on the public high
ways would work a wonderful
change for the better. But the col
lection of no such sum or the half
or the quarter of it will be necessa
ry, as I think I can demonstrate
This, however, is not the only
item of cost. Section 1,087 of the
General Statutes provides that "Any
person who shall receive bodily in.
jury or damage in his person or
property through a defect in the
repair of a highway, causeway or
bridge, may recover in an action
against the county the amount of
damages fixed by the finding of a
jury. If such defect in any road,
bridge or causeway existed before
such injury occuraed, such damages
shall not be recovered by the per
son injured, if his load exceeded
the ordinary weight." '
The next section (1.088) provides,
that "If before the commencement
of an action provided for in the
foregoing section the county com
missioners tender to the plaintiff
the amount which he might be en
titled to recover, together with all
costs, and the plaintiff refuse to ac
cept the saie, and does not re
cover upon subsequent trial a sum
larger than the amount tendered,
the defendants shall recover costs
and the plaintiff be entitled to the
results of no verdict." That is to
say, if the county will pay for the
repairs of every vehicle broken or
injured by reason of a "defect in a
highway, causeway or bridge," or
for every personal injury or dam
age suffered from the same cause,
the party injured shall not be en
titled to recover, -otherwise he will
have that rigl.t. Suppose that pro
vision should be put into execution,
(and what is to prevent it except
the forbearance of the public) what
would be the annual cost to the
people of this State? The fact that
the public have rarely. availed
themselves of it is no proof that it
will not in the future.
It is said corporations have no
souls, and juries appear to act up
on that princple whenever they get
an opportunity. A county is a cor
poration. It colle&ts taxes for its
support from the citizens, and in
return guarantees protection to per
son and property. The citizen is
entitled to this protection, and if
he fails to get it the State gives him
his remedy. A man commits an
assault and battery upon another;
the party assaulted has his remedy
in a civil action for damages, and
besides this the State redresses the
wrong by a criminal prosecution.
One man commits a devestavit upon
the property of another by doing,
or omitting to do, something re
quired. by law, and the party in
jured recovers damages for the
wrong. Why, should not a county
be liable for an act of omission or
commission whereby one of its cit
izens suffers? The Legislature evi
dently thought it should be, or it
would nevcr have enacted such a
law as the foregoing.
There is still another matter of
cost, in the form of an indirect tax,
it is true, but nevertheless a tax
andl burden i-esulting from our
wretchedly bad roads which might
be mitigated and greatly reduced
by good roads, viz: the wear and
tear of vehicles in common use and
the enormous expenditure of horse
It is next to impossible to ascer
tain the vehicles of all kinds and
descriptions used on the public
highways in South Carolina, but I
have adopted the best method I can
think of to approximate the num
ber, and have submitted this ques
tion to a number of practical men.
What is the proportion of vehicles
to population in South Carolina?
Some have answered one to every
hundred, some one to fifty and
others one to seventy-five. I
should have ananswered one to
every hundred, but a majori
ty it think too large and decide that
one to fifty would be nearer the
mark. However, I will adopt one
to a hundred. This would give us
ten thousand vehicles. The aver
age life of a vehicle, carriage, bug
gy, cart, wagon, &c.. is about five
years in the present state of the

FROM THE PULPIT.
THE MINISTER'S AUDIENCE VIEWE
WITH AN IMPARTIAL EYE.
As you preach the word, my des
young brother, cast your eye
around upon the congregation ani
you' will observe these people, a
follows, to wit, namely, viz:
He will be there. Peradventur
he leaneth his chin upon a cane, a
that when the moment of deep ani
profound slumber cometh upon him
his chin slippeth off and with thi
bang of his head upon the pew ii
front of him he is awaked. How
beit, the bang upon his wife's.hea+
no man can bear. Or, the slum
berer may sit bolt upright and no<
in time to his deep and regula
breathing. Only when you cas
your eyes upon him the watchfu
wife of his bosom stabs him wit]
her elbow, and he glareth upon th4
congregation as who should say
"He that sayeth I slept, the same i,
a liar and a villian and a horse
thief." Or, if he be so that hi
leaneth his head back until the lit
thereof falleth down betweens hi
shoulders, and he playeth fantasti+
tnnes with his nose, insomuch tha
the boys in the gallery make merr;
over the same, then it is hazardou
to awaken this slumberer right and
denly, because he dreameth o
divers things and sayeth to th,
man who shaketh him up
"Hey? hi! ha! yes, yes, all right
I'm up." And thus is the congre
gation much scandalized. But i
he foldeth his handkerchief ove
the back of the pew in front an<
boweth his head devoutly upon th,
same, even in that moment when th<
text is pronounced, then will tha
sleeper trouble no one, but wil
slumber sweetly on until the tim,
of the benediction, and he will ez
tol the sermon and magnify th
preacher. He is the old-timer fron
He falls into the pew and slide
easily into the most comfortabl'
corner. He shakes himself dow]
into' a comfortable attitude. Hi
legs extend under the pew in froni
and meet his hips at the crookedes
of obtuse angles- He crooks hi
pliant elbow into the arm ofith
pew, and drops the side of his fac
into the fearful hollow of his hanc
by means 'of which he pushes hi
cheek up into 'his eye. His shoul
ders are nearly on a level with hi
head. Every time you look at hiI
you expect to sie him slide out c
sight. And although you are
good man, sometimes you wish h
would, and never come up again.
Whether you look for him or nol
you know where he is. He pushe
the hassock away with a long res<
nant groan of its own. Then h1
sits bolt upright, hooks his shon
der-blades over the back of th
pew and hangs on. He is going t
sit still this summer if it kills hin
But the pew is too high, sohe sel
tIes down a little. Then he puts
hymn-book between his back an
the pew. Then he leans forwar
and lets it fall with a crash. The
he folds his arms; he half turus an
lays one arm along the back of th
pew. Suddenly he slides down an
brades both knees against the bac
of the pew in front. Ah, that
comfort. It lasts ninety second'
when he abruptly straightens al
elevates both arms and hooks hi
elbows over the back of is'pev
That isn't what he wants; his leg
are tired; he reaches for the hai
sock with both feet, upsets it, an
in a frantic effort to stay it kickt
it against t,he pew. Covered wit
burning embarrassment he pull
out his watch twice or thrice witi
out once looking at it. He fold
his arms across his breast, then h
crosses them behind his back; h
thrusts his hands into his pocket
he drops a Bible on the fioor an
puts his feet into his hat, and a
times you look to see him go all t
pieces, but he doesen't. He stay
together and comes back next Snm
day, every limb and joint of hin
His neck is fitted on a glot
socket and turns clear around. H
sees everything that goes on. Th
.man hacmes in late does nr
'escape him, and it is vain for the
tenor to think he got that little note

leaves of the hymn book unob.
served. The watcher saw it. He
r sees the hole in the quarter that
Elder Skinner dropped in the
plate.. He sees that Deacon Slow
boy has kut one cuff. If the door
swings he looks around; if the
window moves noiselessly he looks
up. He sees the stranger in his
neighbor's pew, and he sees Brother
Badman sitting away back under
the gallery, furtively taking a chew
of the inhibited fne-cut. All things
that nobody wants him to see the
watcher sees. He sees so much he
has no time to listen. -
As you pronounce your text, you
see the time-keeper take out his
watch, look at it carefully and
close it with a snap that says:
"Go !" clear to the pulpit. You
know that he has you down to a
second, and that he keeps a faith
ful record of the length of every
sermon you preach, usually adding
five or ten minutes to the record,
"to allow for a difference -in
watches." During the sermon he
refers to that watch every few min
utes or oftener. And when you
r have been preaching, say, twenty
five minutes. the time-keeper looks
at his watch and starts. Can he
believe his eyes? He looks at the
watch; then he gazes at you. Then
he looks around at the clock on the
gallery to be assured that his watch
hasn't been stopped ever since last
f Sunday. Then he makes a move
r ment to close the watch and return
it to his pocket, but changes his
mind, looks at it again, smiles-a
despairing smile, and holds his
hand up a little-so that his neigh
bor can see what tine it is. Then,
with a long, fled lookatyou,he
clicks his watch shut and slowly
returns it to his pocket with the
1 expression of a man whose amaze
men has struck him dumb, and who
cannot actually believe the evi
dence of his own senAs. If the
time-keeper cannot ruin the closing
five minutes of your sermon you are
1 proof against annoyance.
He comes in late. His pew is
the furthest from the door. His
a boots are vocal monsters that are
never worn save on the Sabbath
day to keep it noisy. Down the
Slong aisle he walks, squee-squaw,
.squee-squaw. When he reaches his
Spew there are strangers in it. He
is the soul of hospitality, and he
Swouldn't disturb one of them for

eder the gallery, squee-squaw, squee
squaw. Then hef remembers that
he has a notice for you toread, and
back he squeaks to the pulpit,
hands you the wrong notice, and
* solemnly squawks back to the pul
'pit, delivers the proper notice, and
e calmly squawks back to hisdistant
