"whether or not t!io people of Pickens

term in November. It would bo a
very economical court that could bo
iiold in this county f*>r eoven hundred
doll ai 8. Tho wbolo amount of
the tlireo mills' tax, tines and licenses,
is only $1,440.15. Tlnco courts,
under no circumstances, would cost
less than twonty-ono hundred dollars ;
i a' l *: 4 i . i
UUblOl UftUllMg })r IBUIIUrb IIUI* JUbB Iliilll
$300; paupers, $750 ; salary of
county commissioners and clerk ol
board $550. These three items
alone, taking the lowest possible estimate,
amount to ?o,700, leaving a
balance of only $7-10 lor the purpose
of repairing and building bridges,
public buildings, etc. 1 lie estimated
cost of three courts is based upon the
expense of tho last March term, and
we think it very reasonable to presume
that some ol the terms during
the yiar would st a much greater
sum, and wo might very safely say
that tho tour items above mentioned,
would consutno the entire amount ol
the county's revenue, leaving it
without a cent to apply to bridircJ,
public buildings, and other incidental
expenses. Our pooplo are poaccable,
quiet and law abiding, and there
are seldom a: y criminal cases before
the courts. One term ot court a
year is sufficient to dispose of all
the business that would come before
it, and we trust that in the future
there will bo only one court held
during the year fur this county,
unless circumstances should make ii
ncco?sary to have a called term.
This c ursc. we feel confident would
meet the hearty ppprobation of a
largo majority of the tax-payer.) of
I'At;ri?i<8.?From the ''Poor returns
for l he year ending Sept. 30th,
1875." We extract the following
itnmc * fPl>o nnnilwu' nunnoi'a unit
purled in Poor House during the
whole or any part of .the year, ie 1G ;
average number, 11; supported out
of L'oor llouso, 1 ; average weekly
cost ol supporting each pauper in
l'oor llouse, $1.00; out of l'uor
House, Sl.15; number ol white
pan; era, ;1 : number of colored, 5;
number of insane supported in Asylum,
ii ; cust of supporting paupers
during the year, ?750; number ol
acres ot land attached to l'oor
House, 150; value, $2,000 ; personal
property, $400; total, $2 400 ; estimated
value of crop3 retained for
use on tlie L'oor House farm, $200 ;
estimated value of all labor per-*
formed by the poor in Poor House,
$25 ; number supported in Poor
llousc at present time, 13; out ot
Poor House, 1 ; assisted out ol Poor
Home, 1 ; children under I t years
of atje supported at public charge,
rj ; whites, 2 ; eolored, 1.
The present crop on the Poor
House farm, we are informal, is
very line, and the Poor House will
bo next year, nearly, or quite sell"
sustaining. J/ist year the crop was
not good, besides two b.dc3 of cotton
raised on the farm wee destroyed
by an accidental lire. The Poor
House lai ni, according to size, is one
ul the bust in the county, and can,
we think, with proper management,
lie made self-supporting.
