by T. 0. Robinson. Maj. Stewart
was nominated and elected eairman,
and 1. H1. G. McDaniel secretary. T.
C. Robinson then read the call and
explained that the door was open for
all to join who would pledge them
selves to support the nominees of the
State ioformn conven tion. The follow
Sing were enrolled nt the Pickens club:
"J. T. Youngblood, W arren Boyd, J. E.

had taken~ him by3 surprise, and that
in order that the club should be ena
bled to veo intelligently) he thought
that it was prtoper that he should ex.
-plain to some extent his p~olitical situ
tion: That he considered himself
one of the oldest reformers of Pick
ens county; that since the State con
vention of 1886, which he attended
in clolumbia, lhe had been an advo
cate of retrenchment and economy in)
the government, anid had been in fa
vor of a general reduction in expenses,
and of economy and ireformi. F'or two
sears before his nomination, had been
in favor of Ben Tlillman for Govern
or. And that he how preferred Till
nan for U. S. Senator in preference
to Gen Butler.
But for the second condition in the
call for the organizatiou of reform
clubs, he wvould not be entitled to be
.come a member, for the reason'that

last election, that he had thus Voted

That he was now ready to do what
ever lie might ho able for reform, in
the way of an honest and economical
administration for the wvelfarq of the
people, and that lie thought unity
and concert of action were the great

He then declared thme club ready for

To the Honorable, the Court of Gen
eral Sessions for Pickens Coumty:
The Grand Jury Present:
1. That we have by a special com
mittee, assisted by J. E. Boggs, an
attorney of this bar, as an expert)
made careful investigation of the
office of the clerk, sheriff and probate
judge) and find them well and neatly
kept. We recommend that some ad
ditional furniture for keeping the
public records in the clerk's office be
furnised and that book shelves be
put in the fire-proof vault attached to
the clerk'r, .ffice.
8. We have examined the county
Qommissioners' office and find it well
and properly kept. We notice the
board has all the testimony in regard
to roads recorded in the minute book.
It seems to us this unnecessarily
cumbers the record. We recommend
that this practice be discontinued.
4. Reports on the auditor's and
treasurer's office will be made in the
next presentment, as the final settle.
ment with the comptrollkr has not
yet been had. So far as we have
been able to investigate the treasurer's
report is correct.
5. We have examined the bonds of
the various county officers and find
them good and sufficient.
6. All'the trial justices, except one,
Trial Justice J. T. Prior, of Dacusville,
presented their books, and we find
then very well kept, and that they
have promptly turned over all fines
and costs which their books show
they should have collected.
7. We find the uoroner's books well
kept and inquests recorded up to date.
9. We call the attention of the
county comnissioners to the bad con
dition of the following public roads:
Road from Stewart's mill down Keo.
wee river to the Old Pickens bridge;
from Six Mile church to R4)binson's
bridge and also the bridge; from
King's old store to Crow Creek. The
attention of the county commissioners
is called to the fact that there are
complaints about the owners of lands
and their tenants encroaching upon
the public roads by cultivating the
right of way and thereby making the
roads too narrow.
10. We recommend that the salary
of the trial justice of Dacusville be
increased from 850.0-- to $10.00 per
annum. We respectfully return our
cordial thanks to the presiding Judge
the solicitor and officers of court for
many valuable courtesies.

nied having any, and he thought he
wvould help himself, and he hoped the
