SUPERVISOR ABOUT TO BEGIN
ON ROADS IN THE FORK.
Has Larger Force, Both Convicts and
Mules, and Road to Newberry
Will Be Put in Order.
Lexington, June 10.-There has
been so much said of late about the
su-pervisor of Lexington county not
working the proposed automobile
highway, which runs through the
Dutch Fork section of this county.
Supervisor Langford was asked when
he hoped to begin work on the road.
Done Much Work.
The -supervisor of Lexington has
done a world of good work on the
roads of this county during the last
year, and more especially during the
last few months. He has worked the
roads in and around Swansea, which
were in a most horrible condition, the
sand being very deep. The roads in
that section are now a credit to the
county. For several weeks it was nec
essary to keep the gang on the road
leading through the famous Hoggabaa
swamp, which has given so much
trouble and about which there has
been so much unfavorable comment.
This piece of road has been put in
the best possible shape, although it
is essential to keep a force of hands
employed to keep it up..
Again, the Augusta road between
Lexington and Columbia, came in for
a share of the chaingang's work. This
stretch has ibeen put in good shape,
every foot of it having been clayed.
During the last couple months thE
gang has been working on the gap be
tween Lexington and Leesville and
when it is finished this road will be
the best in the county and will extend
from one side of the county to the
In speaking of the situation Mr.
Langford said: "It is an impossibil
ity to please all . the people all . the
time. I have done the best I could
for the roads of this county, and
while it would afford me a great deal
of pleasure to use the chaingang on
all of the roads in the county, this is
impossible. I have sta ted all along
that it was my intention to get on
the roads in the Fork during the ear
ly summer, and 'I had hoped to have
gotten there earlier, but I fail to see
the good judgment of moving the
gang before the Augusta road has
been completed. It must be remem
bered that this is also an automobile
highway and is equally as important
in my estimation as the proposed
highway coming from the up-country.
The .Augusta road will be completed
at an early date and I will at once
move to the Fork.
(Will Bush It.
"It is my intention now to begin
work on the Columbia and Newberry
road, starting at Broad river bridge
and continuing until the road is fin
ished to the Newberry line. I will
have a good force of' hands, at least
14 -more than I had when the gang
was in the Fork last year. I also
have siv more mules than last year,
*and It can readily be seen that I will
push the work on this new highway
rapidly. Just say to the papers that
'Old'Louis' is going to'give these peo
ple a good road, one that will be a
credit to the county."

plaintiff. Is that so?"
"Yes," replied the witness.

in the evidence. A half hour's argu

KUKER WILL LOSE JOB.
President Revokes Appointment of
Kuker to Postmastership in Sena- evt
Washington, June 9.-Louris Kuker.
will be ousted from the postmaster
ship at Florence. His name was sent
in several months ago by President
Taft, but confirmation has been heldo'
up in the senate by Senator Smith. o
The president today ordered the post- the
master general to withdraw the nomi- w
nation. This was done at the instiga-ni
tion of Senator Smith and in his pres
ence the president dictated the order
Iof withdrawal. Senator Smith declin-, Ca
ed to recommend any one for the of
fice, but wil do so later.
His chief objection to Kuker, heoe
said, was that the president had madeua
the nomination without his approval,' tw<
which was contrary to the precedents 15,
in such matters and not in conformity Tu
with the established principle that a'
senator shall have the privlege of
naming the postmaster in his home
town. President Taft stated that he
intended hereafter to conform to this~ Tu
rule, declaring that the several nomi- nit
nations in senators' home towns here
tofore made were in the rush arid con- C.
fusion of a large number of appoint
ments to which he was unable to give_
his personal attention. A similar case'
was that of the postmastership at Bir
mingham. Aia., the nomination to of
which was withdrawn at the instiga- he
tion of Senator Johnston. Unless.a Co
name is sent in shortly for the Flor- Th
ence position the office will be vacant ,thi
filled, of course, by the assistant until du
a postmaster is named. Within the di
next few days Senator Smith will send ce'
a list of several names of men accept- se<
able to him for the office, from which Co
