docs not know whoro tho "board's au
Tho next question Mr. Haloy asks is:
"Aro tho pooplo ablo now to boar tho
taxation to robuild tho bridgo, ospooially
when ho 'remembers' tho county ia al
ready some )ivo thousand dollars in dobt,
placed on us by a provfous administra
"ltomembor, now," that tho Prattler's
bridgo was built by a contract with
Ilaborsham county and with sundry citi
zens of Oconco who put tnonoy into it to
tho amount of somo aovon hundred and
fifty dollars, and tho contract with Hab
orsham county was solomnly and legally
outorod into by tho representatives of I
each county, and duly signed and wit
nesscd at tho roBidonoo of Col. Wilborn,
near tho bridge, and tho parties who
signed tiio contract to build tho bridgo
and keep it in repair aro still living and
the Legislature cannot annul or do away
with that contract, nor tho Supremo
Court, nor any other court (oxcopt it
might bo Judge Haley's court, .ludgo
Haley presiding, and Judgo Haley plain
till', A c.,) can Bot asido tho contract ox
copt for cause, and Ibero is no cause and
tho contract must stand. Ilaborsham
county can go on and build tho bridgo
and sue Oconco and make us pay our
part, of tho expenso and costs.
"Itomombor, now," that this will hoi
harder to do "with t-eont cotton" than'
to repair tho bridge, and, "romombir,
now," also, that tins idontical samo Mr.
Haley was a star of tho first magnitudo
in tho "previous administration" that ho
says placed this fivo thousand dollar
debt on us. Mr. Haloy "romombers"
there are plenty of public bridges and
jood fords accessible, and that tho peo
ple are poor, and do not pay much taxes
near l'rathor's bridge, and that tho
bridge is no uso, but does not say why
private citizens, being poor and sparsely
settled, should put their banda ill (heir
own pockets, and pay about ono-half of
thc cost of this exponsivo and usolcss
bridge. Whoro has any other people in
the county dono as much'.*
The Tngaloo Valloy, from Fort Madi
son to Rrasstown, has had only ono
chango in its roads in twenty years, and
that to tho value of $71. Still ho "re
members" "tho amount of money tho
county now bason tho uppor Tugalooby
reason of Ibis samo l'rathor's bridgo."
Tho Tngaloo Valloy from Kort Madi
son to Hrasstown has novor had a con
vict on its public roads. Tho Tugaloc.
Valley from Fort Madison to Hrasstown
has never had tho road machino in its
midst. Still wo arc berated bocauso, for
sooth, wo dare open our mouths and ask
for a portion of our rights. Ile goes on
to say our people, who baye sons at
Ciel iRon, (our own college), pay toll to
go to soo thom, ovor Havonel's bridgo.
Can anyone tell who Mr. Maloy' calls
his own pooplo, or who ho thinks owns
Clemson College? Ho calls it their own
college He evidently does not moan tho
people on thc upper Tngaloo or Chat
tooga, for all tlioy have been paying taxes
for its supporta long timo, and also havo
paid taxes to build a $:i,f>00 iron bridgo
at tho lower end of tho Clemson place,
and havo not ni ado as much fuss about
it as Mr. Haloy has about repairing one
half of l'rathor's bridgo at a cost of say
Friends, whon you go to donison, go
by tho iron bridge. It ia the best way,
and tlioy don't chargo toll.
As for tho-if not ungentlemanly-at
least unwarranted and uncalled-for per
sonal flings Mr. Haloy choso to maka at
me, I would say that 1 havo been in Oco
nco county as long as Mr. Haloy has, and
I pay taxes in Hahersham and ho docs
not, and am in need of a bridgo to the
Scott place as much as Mr. Haloy a
graded and macadamized road > Haley's
storo. I have had nothing to lo with
bankrupting tho county, havo always
paid my just debts, havo holpcd build
two free bridges that Mr. Haloy and tho
peoplo have boon using a long timo.
Mr. Haloy says, in conclusion, that "it
would ho a pleasure for mo to build
them Ibis bridge could I conscientiously
bell OYO that tlioy woro not better pro
vided for in tho way of free crossing than
tho remainder of tho county, and if I
could do KO without Invading our air' ady
over-burdened tax-payers with a tai: too
heavy to bo borne, to justify tho outlay,
and, further, provided I could do so
legally." That is, perhaps, tho most
egotistical and solf-conccitcd paragraph
I have road in a long time. Mr. Haley
seems to think or suppose there is nono
ll but "I." Ho seems not to "romornbor
now" that there aro two other goM lernen
on tho board, of equal authority wit h "I,"
and equal, if not superior, in intelligence
with "I," and equal, if not superior, in
other ways with "I." Prom tue way he
uses the "I" one would think tho tiling
was sottlod, but I hopo ho will get II?H
eyes open and seo the law, tho justice
and the right, and join in with us and
rebuild the bridge. I confidently believe,
tho board, ora majority of the sanie, will
do so, and end the trouble.

out of yellow fever at tho Soldiers1 homo,

there was a enso of yollow fovor lb tho

Tho first aunouncemont of fovor at
Soldiers' Homo wns mado Inst night, and
with tho announcement carno tho start
ling statomont that ovor thirty cases ox
istcd and six had already died. At first
tho moro consorvativo wero inclined to
holiovo that, an opidomic of denguo or
"hreak-bono" fovor had been mistnkon
for yollow-jnck, but to day government
oxports settle theso skepticisms by declar
ing that tho diseaso is tho genuine yol
low fovor, and of a mnlignnnt type.
There have boon sovoral conllicting re
ports as to tho numbor of cases and
deaths, but, r.t 2 o'clock this af tornoon a
messago from Qovornor Woodwin, of tho

there have been tin co deaths from yollow

deaths and a total of ?0 eases.

Tho most plausible theory of tho intro
