Many Delegates From All Parts of
South Carolina-Much Enthus
Spartanburg Journal, August 8.
"Last week the Farmers' Union of
South Carolina requested the minis
ters of the State to pray for rain. Yes
terday was the day set apart for these
prayers. In my church and in num
bers of other churches throughout
the State, ministers offered up pray
ers, asking for rain. In the afternoon,
in answer to these prayers, a gracious
rain was sent to 'this and other sec
tions of South Carolina."
Rev. Lewis M. Roper.
After Supervisor Daniel M. Miles,
had called the first midsummer cn
vention of the South Caroli* Good
Roads association to order and asked
Rev. Mr. Roper to lead in prayer he

audience that crowded into the court

walked up to one of the tables in
front of the court room and under the
speaY'er's desk. On entering he bow

sitting. and standimg near by.
Mr. Roper then offered a very ap

blue serge suit and wore a tie to

Mr. Miles then introduced Samuel

John Wood, secretary of the cham
ber or commerce then welcomed the
-delegates on behalf of the county and;
Salluded to Spartanburg as the best:
county in the entire United Stgtes of
America. It was a short, but most
appropriate, talk and greatly enjoyed
ly the visitors and others.
.Gov. Cole. L. Blease.
When Mr. Miles introduced the gov
eAior, Cole. L. Blease, there was great
applause and it was several moments
before he could begin his speech. It
was a .fine atalk telling of .thg advan
ages of good roads, the difficulties
which they assist in overcoming and
Teaving politics out all together. Not
once during the twelve minutes that
be spoke did he al-lude to anythinig
political and not once did he take a
little fling at-any one. It was a mag
nificent effort for such an occasion.I
"I. am .much pleased to 'be here to-~
day in the county of Spartanburg, one
of the most progressive and most
prosperous counties in the United
States of America and one that can
-boast of the prosperity of her people;
onei that does not have to boast of
white' sapremacy. Different from oth
*er sections of South Carolina, the
-population of Spartanburg county is
such that there is never any "nigger
in the woodpile,"' when it comes to
"Welcoming the delegates to this
convention for the betterr,ant of the
coads. on behalf of the entire State, I'
wanit to say that I am glad to be here
a~nd that you are most cordially wel
comed. Peace, prosperity aid hap
pines rule. If 'there be a man who
doubts this, I could only invite him'
to ride over the country near Colum
'bia and ask what the land can be
vurchased for. The price of this land
bas 'been increased by the good roads."'I
The governor then went on to re
view- the great value of good roads
t-eiing- many instgnces where great
proift h.ad been derived from them and
tilustrating the true value, in a fin
ancial and other manners. The call
Sig of a physician when one is need
ed, the time saved in marketing coun
try produce, and the higher prices of
land were arguments advanced b
Blease for better roads in the State.
Gov. Blease congratulated Spartan-;
burg county on having Daniel M.
Miles as supervisor, aliuding to him
as one who has accomplished some
thing in the last twelve months, one'
'who knew his business and "The:
equal of any county supervisor in the
entire United States."
--He told this story: Once when he~
- '-.* -
was making a campaign speech in
Newberry county someone asked hin=
what was the best road machinery.
He replied the "elbo grease of a free.
He spoke of the general prosperity
of the State at large q 1oting figures
obtained from the secretary of state's
office which showed the great increase
in capital invested in enterprises of
all kinds throughout the State and
advancing as proof that citizens, have
great confidence in the government of
the State. "They are not afraid to go
down in their pockets and dig up the
money and put it in new enterprises
in South Carolina. They have confi
dence in the- government of this, the
greatest of all States in the American
Gov. Blease then reviewed more ad
vantages of good roads, keeping on
the opposite track from politics at all
times. He spoke with ease and grace,
carefully selecting his words and pro
nouncing most of them in a slow and
deliberate manner. It was apparent
that he desired to make a good roads
speech and -to pass over questions po
In conclusion he said: "My young
friend, Mr. Sam Nichols has 'old you
that if any delegate got in any troni
ble while in Spartanburg that he as
city attorney would see that you got I
what was right at the station house.
I'll go him one better and say that if1
any one needs a pardon, I'll grant it
if my young friend Nichols recom
pends that it be granted."
In the deafening applause and great
laughter the governor took his seat.
F. H. Hatt, one of the leading cit
izens of Columbia and president of
the South Carolina good roads asso
ciation was next. introduced by Mr.
Miles. He -began by 'expressing him
self as pleased that "the governor had
laid aside the robe of politics during
his speech-he did prettp well for the
first time," and saying that he had
wondered whether or not Mr. Blease
would take this occasion to talk of.
politics in South Carolina. During
these remarks the expression of Mr.
Blease did not change,,one iota.
Mr. Hyatt told of his experience in
building good roads as county com
missioner of Richland county, the op
position that arose over the spending
of the county's m9ney in an "extrav
gant manner" as the opposing fasction1
stated. He reviewed thie troubles un
til the commissioners were finally
through with the work of making vast
improvements. Mr. Hyatt stated that
much money was lost in the building
of good roads by poor management of.
funds and ignorance of how best to
prepare Y:hem and how best to spend
the funds available. He stated that
one half of the moneyr is often wasted.
His talk was strictly along the line of'
good roads and greatly enjoyed by all
who were so fortunate as'to be pres
ent. Mr. Hyatt also paid a magnifi
cent tri-bute ,to SupervIsor Miles and
stated that Spartanburg county was
fortunate in having such an officer.
After his speech the task of regis
tering the delegates by the secretary
of the, conviention, F. C. Black, of,
Cherokee county, was undertaken.
After this was completed, Hon. E. J.
Watson, State commissioner of agri
culture of South Carolina and others
spoke on the value of good roads and
the most scientific manner in which.
they are to be erected and kept. After
this the convention got down to real
business and much good resulted.
ADMITS SHE'S OUT OF PLACE.
Hunnewell's" Woman Mayor Would
Quit if She Could.
Hunnewell, Kan., Aug. 7.-"Politics
is not a woman's game." This Is the
decision of Mrs. Ella Wilson, mayor of
this town, who, since her inaugura
tion, has had a continual fight with
the male city council. They have not
confirmed her appointees for city
marshal or city clerk, and she has'
not signed any of the ordinances~ they
Mrs. Wilson tonight, for the first
time, admitted she would quit if she
could, saying politics is not the place
for a woman, but, at the same time,
she turned on the members of the
city council and forced the members
to listen to her.
The meeting tonight accomplished
nothing except to pay for the repairs
on the town pump, and the council
would do nothing the mayor wished
and the mayor would sign no ordi
nances passed by council.
