WILL BUILD ROAD.
Cooperation of Counties Assured at
Spartanburg, May 24.-Tbe Colum
bia-Asheville highway is going to be
built and a working plan to ad%pt
the most feasible route for it was
formed at a meeting at the Harris
theatre here today which was at
tended by delegations from all the
towns interested and especially by
about half of the population of Union
county, speaking figuratively. A com
mittee of one each to be selected by
the chambers of commerce of Colum
bia, Spartanburg and Asheville, is to
determine the route after riding over
the three which were advocated at tte
meeting today. The Spartanburg
chamber will pay the expenses of the
commission during the scouting over
the various roads.
The route from Asheville to Spar
tanburg has already been determin
ed on and the road with the exception
of a small gap is already in good
shape. The lower end of the high
way from Newberry to Coldinbia was
not a matter of dispute either but the
route from Spartanburg to Newberry
is the object of contention - as there
are three different routes proposed
Spartanburg via Jonesville, Union
and Whitmire to Newberrf, approxi
mately 61 miles; . Spartanburg 'via
Laurens and Clinton to Newberry, ap
proximately 68 miles; and Spartan
burg via Walnut Grove, Cross Anchor
and Clinton to Newberry, approxi
mately 60 miles.
- Had Able Advocates.
All of these routes had able ad
vocates at the meeting but though
all worked hard to have their route
selected nevertheless there was ap
parent a spirit of 6ooperation that wil
ensure earnest help on the part of all,
no matter which route is selected.
Dr. W. B. Patten earnestly advo
cated the Cross Anchor route and
promised the hearty cooperation of all
-from his section if the road were built
that way and in addition he stressed
the beauty of the scenery which could:
-be had. Bc4ides he said the road
with only a small gap of three miles
.is already good and these three miles
will soon be improved. He made a
strong plea for the .route and -was1j
ably backed by the representativesa
from Walnut Grove, who pointed with
pride to the road from Suartaniburg
to their town, which they said it wasi
a joy to ride over.;
Union was present with a delega
tion which formed probably amar
* jority of those attending and they
spoke out strongly for the Union
* route. Mayor Wagnon and Mayor-elect
-Du.nan were among thle repres enta-1q
. tives as well as the c(>unty supervis- 4
Ors and county officers. Union is aft
.1 er the road and after it strong, and?
her delegates presented the route to! 4
its fullest advantage. J. H. Speers, 1
county supervisor of Union county,!
said that if a flock of wild geese were :
turned loose in Spartanburg and told!
to go to' Columbia their. honking 'could
be heard as they flew over the streets 4
of Union. In addition to being the
most direct route said Mr. Duncan, it
*was the best route and the most fea- 4
sib1e. There were,' he said, places4
* where their machines could be repair
ed in case of a break-down; gasoline
could be secured and electric power
was not wanting in case of electric 4
machined whose batteries needed re- '
charging. There were few streams to
cross, there being a stretch of 50
miles in 'which only one stream has to4
be forded and the lumber for bridg
ing it is now being hauled.1
Plead for Laurens Route.
Dr. Aiken, chair man of the chain
ber of commerce of Laurens, made4
a strong speech in behalf of the .4
Laurens route. While he agreed with a
other speakers that the' road must
be for travelers in all kinds of ye
hicles and on horseback, yet it was
also to-be for automobiles and what
automobile travelers wanted was to
travel a road where they would meet~
other travelers, pass through towns
and see farm houses. He thought the
route by Laurens would be the best
that could be adopted for these rea
sons and because a' large part of the
route is in excellent shape now.
C. W. Moormnan, secretary of the:
Columbia chamber of commerce, ad-;
dressed the meeting and told of the
interest being taken in Columbia in
the movement. The part of the high
way which runs through Richland, he;
said, was as good a road as could be
* ~ desired. The chamber of commerce
has now at work an active committe&
securing signatures to a petition for:
an election in Columbia township to;
change the toll brdiges across Broad
and Congaree rivers into free bridges
and though the work was tedious, he'
had no doubt that the bridges would
be made free. It is proposed to vote
the purchase of the two bridges and
* when bought they will be made free.
T. P. A. Representatives.
J. W. Lillard of Columbia, speaking
as the representative Qf the T. P. A.
in South Carolina, more than 1,000
world, said he, assured the meeting
Df the interest of the traveling men
in the movement for this road and
for all road improvements. The trav
eling men, he said, used the roadE
and were going to use them more iJ
possible, especially since the railroad.
impose regulations in regard to mil
eage that are distasteful to them.
John Wood, who acted as chairmai
of the meeting, drew on a large mal
the various parts of the roite as thei
were discussed by the different dele,
gates. He afterwards ""addressed th(
assemblage upon the dangers of th4
many grade crossings and advocate(
their . abolition wherever possible.
A suggestion was made' by Dr. Ai
ken that a missionary be sent to th<
supervisor of Lexington county in or
der to arouse his interest in the roa(
through Lexington, but Mr. Moormai
of Columbia answered for him tha
the roads in the other sections of th
county were now in such shape tha
a force was to be put to work a
once in the Dutch Foi-k section an
that in a short time that section o
the highway would show marked im

to come up and get close to nature.
Discussion on 'Plan.
There followed some discussio'n ac
to the plan to be adopted for th(
selection of the route for the high
kray, it being at first proposed thai
Newberry have representatives on th(
commission. It 'was objected that il
might be hard for them to be non
partizan, and as it was the desirec
object to have an absolutely non-par
tizan committee it was voted unani
mously that a member each appoint
ed by the chambers of commerce oJ
Asheville, Spartanburg and Columbia
should pick the route after a carefu]
inspection of all the roads.

last commander of. Columbia Post, G.

nitial camp fires of the State encamp

leader would be a step toward pen
sioning Confederate soldiers and
opening the way to the federal gov
ernment assuming the burden of Con
federate war bonds.
In part, the speaker said:
"So long as treason is considered a
crime against constitutional law, the
statue of Robert E. Lee can have no
t abiding place in that pantheon dedi

I The main portion of the address
was in support of the contention that
Gen. Lee was not convinced, of the
justice of the cause for which he
- drew his sword and that he, there
I fore, should have no claim io the
i name of patriot. The speaker based
t his argument on a letter from Gen.
: Lee to his son, Curtis Lee, the text of
t which he obtained from a publication
L of a Southern historiai.
I "Speaking of the impending war.
E the letter as published," said Mr. Dar
- ling, read: "''The framers of our con
stitution never could have exhausted
i so much labor, wisdom and forbear

"The words of that message and
his subse4uent acts can not be recofA
ciled," said the speaker. "If his con
science dictated that letter, then what
accursed influence caused him to 'em
brace anarchy just ninety days later
-anarchy as he himself hadi pictured
"What does all this mean? It means
that a solid South, the Daughters and
