I CONGRESSMEN ARE GRATIFIE
Ten Other South Carolina Cities 1
Have Handsome Postoffice
News and Courier.
Washington, April 30,?When eo
gress during the next few days pass*
the public building bill there wi
have gone to the credit of South Ca
i olina, to be used in the const rue tic
of Federal buildings, more tht
\ $400,000, as the result of the woi
her representatives have done durit
Die present session of congress f<
their respective districts.
While it is not yet possible to cor
pare this amount with* that going
oilier States; it is believed that win
such a comparison is made and tl
size of the different towns sharing
this distribution is considered, it wi
i be seen that excellent results ha1
s been achieved by each of the six eo
gressmen making bids for a part <
the appropriation. Every district
the Stale is represented except tl
1st, and Mr. Legare, having no oth
large places to look after, exec
Charleston, asked for nothing, th
city already having a maunilice
Orangeburg, Aiken, Newberr
Darlington, CJaffney, Laurens and II
ion each have a population of prob
bly about 8,000 or 10,00 inhabitant
. For that reason it is to tire credit <
the South Carolina representativ
that they should have been suceessf
in securing $50,000 for each of thei
Representative Finley, who as
member of the house committee <
postoffices and postroads, knows
considerable amount about postolfi
matters generally, was asked . tods
what kind of buildings he thoug
$50,000 would allow. He stated th
in his opinion such an amount won
appear to be ample for all purpos
where only poslolllce business is to
transacted, 'and where there will
no necessity of providing quarters f
i court officers, revenue officers ai
others. He cited the case of Ro
\ Hill, which has a fine building, whi
cost, when completed, about $45,0t
ami something more than $5,000 w
paid for the site.
While it is not possible to gi
even an outline of what each of t
ISouth Carolina representatives h
, done towards securing these appr
priations, it may be said that t
items would not have been placed
the appropriation bill without, t!
most persistent and ceaseless effo
on their part.
Mr. Patterson secured the passa
of an Act June 30, 1906, approprif
ing $10,000, with which to purchase
site for the Aiken building. Tl
has been done, and with the additio
al $50,000 available for the build):
proper, Aiken will have both a go<
j site and building,
There lias already been approprif
ed for the Anderson building ai
site $50,000, the latter costing $
514.58. The additional $10,01
which will go into the fund, will gi
that town a total of $00,000.
Although no delegations came
Washington and had public heari
on the Newberry proposition. Repr<
entalive Aiken worked' faithful
from the first, and was awarded
sharing in the distribution i<> the c
tent of $50,000.
I'M ON AND LAEWEN'S.
Enion and Laurens show up belt
than any of the other Smith Cai
linn towns litis year. Mr. .loluis<
represents the 4th district jn coiigre:
I has both Union and Laurens in 1
district. He gets $50,000 for each
^ them. In addition to this (Jrecnvi
|P recently got $80,000 for enlarging h
building, and Spartanburg, under i
p cent Act, got $00,000, and now h
P1 one of the best equipped and m<
f commodious postoffice buildings
ffalYney, through hard work on t
part, of Representative Einley, slir
ed to the extent of $50,000, and tho
is no reason, he thinks, why a fin
i class building should not be bu
I there ,just as quick as the necessa
plane ^an be drawn.
Resides t'nis Mr. Einley has recei
ly gotten appropriations for Chest
and Rock Hill?$50,000 for Chest
i and $45,000 for Rock Hill.
DAlRTil N (ITON.
| When the question of passing
' public building bill began to he agit
ted several months ago Represent
five Ellerbe said that if there w
any money to be distributed t-1
year he was going to have his sha
for Darlington. He submitted to t
committee Am buildings and groun
photograi/is of many of the elega
buildings Darlington has erected di
ing the last few years, and besi
x them he showed also poor little sha
v/ known as th* Darlington poet, oft
D building. It did noi take but one
sii?lit ot the j?ijoit?iiiai?h t*.? convince
to (lu. committee that Darlington needed
the money. Mr. Kile:be was successful
in his efforts, and will get $f>0,000
tor a site and building there.
SUMTER, ORANGEIfURO AND CODUMB.IA.
HI The work of securing approprialions
for Sumter, Orangcbnrg and
Columbia fell to Representative Levin
or. He began early in the session to
rjc plan how he could get an increase on
t'he amount already allowed for Sumjr
tor, $50,000, have a new building
erected at Orangebuig and either enlarge
the present building at Columbia
or erect a new one commensurate
? with the needs of the Columbia of
"n today. He planned wisely. He was
,1C successful in all three undertakings,
f!J nnd will get $">0,000 for Orangeburg
1 ( outright, an iu/:ease ?.f at least $lo!u
000, and possibly more for Sumter,
and <!cts a complete investigation by
? the supervising architect of the
treasury in!?? the needs of the Columbia
ollice. Phis investigation will be
made before the next session of conlit
"r'S' ;,n'' 1 :(" ' "v,'r xv'll either
have Columbia given a new building
al a cost of several hundred thousand
dollars or the pre-j^nt structure will'
}> be so remodelled' and enlarged that
,l" it will lie useful and commodious for
a~ many years to come.
A word should be said for the splendid
delegations of business men wlioj
ej came to Washington at Mr. Tvever's |
request and appeared before the com-1
n* mittee on buildings and grounds in I
behalf of Sumter, Orangeburg and
,n Columbia. That they made an excellent
impression on the committee is
best shown in the success that their
^ congressman has achieved in securing
something substantial for each of the
', places named.
? J liese new authorizations, with the
lje tine buildings constructed at Florence,
be ^'recn wood and the other places already
named, speak i:i the best possi((|
ble way for the successful efforts of
c,j. South Carolina representatives ir. j
? congress to secure for their respecIQ
live districts their proper share of i
as public appropriations.
