Dr. Woods raised the question that the
chairman had acted without authority in
calling the committee together to appoint
managers and when the chairman decided
him out of order he appeaied to the com
mittee from the decision of the chair. The
committee unanimously sustained the de
cision of the chair.
Dr. Woods was granted permission to
speak five minutes. He stated that the
members should inform themselves as to
the rules of the Democratic party, and
again asserted that the chairman had no
right to call the committee together to ap
point managers and that the party should
have been reorganized before this. The
chairmani then read from the constitution
and the rules, in which it was clearly stated
that the managers should be appointed the
second Monday in July and that a county
convention should be called the first Mon.
day in August to reorganize the party. Dr.
Woods was finally convinced that he was
Capt. D. J. Bradham submitted his re

and $285.21 ha'd been disbursed, leaving
a balance of $67.79. A committee consist

J-. Elbert Davis was appointed to audit the
report. The committee reported that they
had carefully examined the report and
vouchers and found it correct. The same
plan as last year of appointing managers
and clerks was adopted. This is that each
club shall appoint two managers, and a
neighboring club of the opposirng faction
shall appoint one manager, who shall also
be allowed a clerk, thus giving each club
three managers and two clerks. The
tnanagers were then appointed, in most
cases being the samue as two years ago.

SUM-mErTON, S. C.. July 6, 1894.
Editor Manning Times, Manning. S. C.
Dear Sir: We ask space in your column:
to make publie a grievance of the citizen
of the southwestern part of Clarendou
county against onr county commissionerF
in reference to their continued delay it
improving the condition ot the crossing
over Taw Caw creek. which is just belov
the old Hlaynesworth mill, on the Nelson
For several years it has been urged upon
our commissioners to have built at thih
crossing a causeway and necessary bridges.
This matter took d-finite shape sometimE
in the fall of '02. Mr. James E. Davis, on
one of his canvassing tours, was unfortunatt
enough to come ia contact with the said
crossing, and spending the night with
Mr. R. F. Turner. who lives two inles above
that point, told Mr. Turner that it was one
of the worst crossings ot which he knew,
After some discussion Mr. Davis told Mr.
Turner that if he would get up a petition
of the citions asking the county comizig
sioners to have a causeway and bridges
built, he would exert his personal influence
with thei to that end. Mr. Turner then
got up the following petition, signed by
white and black, and it was placed in Mr.
To the Honorable Board County Commis
sioners, Clarendon County:
We, the undersigned citizens and tax
payers of St. James township, would re
spectfully ask your honorable board to
build and keep up for the public conveni
ence of the people, a bridge and causeway
over Taw Caw creek, just below the old
Haynesworth mill, on the Nelson Ferry
road. The crossiag at said place above de
scribed is in a very bad condition, and, in
the opinion of the undersigned, the only
remedy is to build a bridge and causeway
over the said creek, and your petitioners
will ever pray

At the February term of court, 1893, we
made it our business to go to Manning for
the special purpose of getting this petition
pnt into the hands of the grand jury, and
have them mention it in their report to the
judge. Mr. J. J. Ragin was foreman, and
having a personal knowledge of the condi
tion of said crossing. we felt that some
thing might be accomplished through him.
We saw both Mr. James E. Davis and Mr.
W. C. Davis, who is the clerk of the board
of county comnrissioners, and both of them
promised to see that the petition would be
placed,in the hands of the grand jury
before their report was made up.
Did they do it? No.
On March 16th, '93, Com. Holliday came to
the place of J. H. Burgess & Bro., which is
just south of this crossing. He said that
he had come for the express purpose of ex
amining that crossing. J. H. Burgess re
turned to the cros-ing with Mr. Holliday,
and Mr. H. made a thorom'gh inspection of
the place. He also examined the old mill
dam, with a view of using it for the high
way. Mr. Holliday gave it as his opinion
that it was almost impossible to haul an
empty vehicle across that place not consid
ering a loaded one at all. He seemed to be
thoroughly convinced that a causeway and
bridges was what was needed. Mr. H.
broke bread with us that day and we were
favorably impressed, felt eneouraged. We
invited him to come back and bring his
fellow commissioners and together deter
mine that they would do.
On July 24, '93, they came. Now please
note that this was about mid. summer, at a
time when all crossings are in their best
condition. They found very little wvater,
and a fcw days before we had, with a col
ored man to help, removed many of the
old punicheons, thus making the place
much more passable. They were convinced
from what they saw, that during the sum
mer, the place was not so bad, but they
could readily see that in winter wvhen it
filled up v'ith water that it was almost im
passable. Mr. Rlolliday on this trip said:
"Why you iit the nail on the head when
you took them puncheons out. I don't see
what more you want."
Compare that with his remark on March
15, '93. quoted above. Winter and summer
Well, they came, they saw, they left, say
ing that the county was in debt, and they
could not do anything that summer, but it
the patrons of that crossing were troubled
with the crossing during the winter they
would do something the next summer. So
with heavy hearts we made up our minds
to sink or swim for one mocre winter.
During the fall of '93 we approached our
county senator, Mr. L. M. Ragin, who also
has a personal knowledge of the miseries
of a mid wintdr ride through that water,
and asked his interest in our behalf. Ho
cheerfully acceded to our request, and did
what he could. We will tell later what he
did, besides urging upon the :commission
ers the necessity of improving that crossing,
the claims that section of the county had
upon the public funds, etc.
Time glided on till the February term of
court, '94, when we succeeded in getting
the grand jury to mention the matter in
Just before the last sitting of conrt we
wrote to the clerk of the board asking the
privilege of again urging upon the board
the necessity of taking action in the matter
as the summer was coming on, and as the
water was almost all gone that now was the
time to do or not to do. Mr. Davis replied
that the board woul be iglad to have a com
mittee of interestc.i parties to meet it at its
next sitting on June 1st, ult. Messrs. 0.
C. Scarborough, P. T. Kilgore -and J. H.
Burgess met them, and thme board told us
that even though we had not appeared be
fore thema in behalf of that work, they laid
decided to take definite action r'elative to)
that work on that day.
However, they listened to our co:ziplainxt
and our claims on the county, etc., ac
knowledged themi as jnst, and agreed to let
the whole work of bu'ildir~g causeways and
bridges to some ;esponsible party. The
advertisement for bids was written then
and then, andl wa~s to appear in the county
paper giving due notice to any persons
wanting to bid. Those bidding were to
meet the board at the crossing.
Now let us see what was done !
On June 12, A, we received a letter from
the clerk, Mr. Davis, fr >m which we quote:
"After your committee left town th~e hom~rd
reconsidered their aetian and decided to
fole~w the folloviug ecurse in carrying out
the wishes of your community: They will
only let to contract the building of the
bridges over Taw Caw creek. One of the
comisioners in person, or some suitable
and competent person, appointed by the
board, will take charge of the hands liable
to duty in squads of 20 or 25 at a time,
working them the time allowed by law.
Of course if they pay the commutation tax
this discharges them and their money will
be used in constructing the catuseway. Tho
board meets ise ou Enmday next, the 15th of
Jane, and will he at the crossing on next
day, Saturday, to receive bids for building
brdges and arranging all necessary details
for the undertaking "
When our comminttee left the board on
Jutne 1st we felt confident that the work
would be done; when we received this letter
it made us sick, for it meant simply that
the board was preparing to "crawfish" from
the wvhole business, and so they did.
In the issue of the Manning Times of
June 13, '9k Wednesday, appeared that
o:inous advertisement, naming Saturday,
the 16th June, as the day for the board and
those intending to make bids on the work
to meet at Tawv Caw creek. Three days'
notice given by the board to the citizens of
Clarendon county ! Their only defense
being that the clerk had neglected to put it
days, yet Mr. Wheats White, whom they
brought with them, when asked "How is
this, the board promised to duly advertise
for bids?" replies: "Oh. it hat ueen adver
tised some time."
Three days !
On Saturday the board came. Three
men were there to make bids.
It would take too long to tell of the petty,
vexatious discussions which took place oil
the grounds that day. Suffice it to say
that in the afternoon the commissioners
left for their homes. In reply to the many,
many questions asked us as to what they
did we could only say, "No bids were re
ceived, no contract awarded, no necessary
details arranged for."
What did they come for?
Their own proposition was to let con
tracts for the bridges, to build the cause
way with the road hands, one of their own
number or some suitable person snperin
tending the work.
Mr. Tnrbeville asserted that he could
take thirty hands and do the whole work in
six days. The hands are here, the dirt is
here, but where is 1r. Tarbeville at'"
Mr. Turbeville also said that he thought
there were 150 hands on that section on
each side of the creek. Cani he tell us of
One section in the county sup)lying 150
Before Mr. Ifollilay left lie told us that
he and Mr. Turbeville haid a conversation
on their way here with Mr. Rutledge Din
gle, and that Mr. Dingle, on learning the
object of their journey, langhed at the idea
of doing anything for that crossing. Said
it was ridiculous to talk about it. etc. That
Mr. Dingle said that only three men down
there- wanted it dones, with some other
small talk. We asked Mr. llolliday how he
could listen to such chat as that when they
had a petition signed by 49 citizens filed in
their office nearly two yearsag)? We said
to Mr. H. we doubted if Mr. Dingle had
crossed that place since the war. J'st a
few days after that we met Mr. Dingle in
Summerton, and approached him in this
"Mr. Dingle, why did you tell the com
missioners that it was ridiculous to talk of
building a causeway over Taw Caw ?" His
reply was about like this:
"Why, I was joking with those men;
why, I was only teasing them; they took me
wrong; they put a different construction on
what I said from what I meant. I author
ize you to contradict it."
"Well, Mr. Dingle, why should you tell
the commissioners that only three men
wanted the work done?"
"Did they tell you that I said only three
men wanted it done?"
"Yes, sir, and what reason have you for
"Well, I think I told them only four men
wanted it. I just thought as you and Gen
trv and Geo. Leseone and Mr. Scarborough
were the men who did the most hauling
that you were about the -only ones who
It will be seen that Mr. Dingle's son, Mr.
S. Dingle, is the first name on the petition.
"Mr. Dingle, how many times have you
crossed that place since the war?"
"I guess some half dozen or so."
How many times have you crossed there
in the last fi-ve vears?"
"Well, I reckon two or three times; I re
member crossing there once last year, but
then I was always on horseback, bird hunt
"Mr. Dingle, as a matter of fact, you
know vary little about the crossing?"
"Very little; I know little or nothing
Now, let Mr. H. reconcile this conversa- t
tion with Mr. D.'s remarks to himself. This t
conversation took place at Mr. S. R. Cole's
store, in Summerton, in the presence of J.
C. Lanham, G. W. Dingle and A. T. ltich
Now, Mr. Editor, just a word about the
county's ability to build this causeway and
bridges. The commissioners say they have
no money, at the same time Mr. Hollidav
told us: "If that place was near Manning
it would have been eausewayed and
bridged long ago,'' and that is equivalent to
saying, "Ha ! Ha! gentlemen, when you
bring your bad crossing and put it near
Mantning we will fix it for you !"
Does the mere fact that 'a place of that
kind is within a mile or two of the county
seat put more money in the treasury, an d
thereby enable the commissioners to repair4
Does our treasurer only collect tames trom
those living near alanning? That is the
inference to be drawn from Mr. H.'s re
As to the money necessary for this work,
.ir. Ragin says, in substance, as follows:
"Five hundred dollars is the annual allow-1
ance given this county for new bridges and 1
repairing old ones. After the August1
storm of '93 the Clarendon delegation al
lowed the county thiirteen hundred dollars
to be used in making repairs to damaged
bridges, The commissioners spent one
thousand and twenty-five dollars, and re-1
ported all bridges in thorough repair. This
left two hundred itnd seventy-five dollars
unexpended. When the legislatuie miet
the commissioners asked for eight hundred
moure to be used on bridges. After haing
spent only $1,025 out of the $1,300) allowed,

the idelegation could niot see what they
wanted with $800 miore. But alter talking I
with Mr. Nettles abiout it they decideod *to I
allow themi $400) more with the understand
ing that out of this am~ount the causeway]
and~ bridges now~ under con'msiderationi were I
to be built. W~hat has become of all this
money? 15 it stored away waiting for thej
ime when the growth of Manning will
bring onr crossing in cloise proximity to the
The commissioners boast of being con
servators of the county's lunds. Let u~s
see how that works out. WVe have stated
above that on March 16, '93, Comn. Holliday
visited this place for the pur;'ose of in
specting it. Also on July 21, '93 Mr. Holli
day came again bringing his two fellow coin
missioners. Two visits by one, one visit
by two. Was not this sufficient to satisfy
them as to the needs of the place, and was
any other visit necessary?
If they say yes, they condemn themselves
as untit for their office. If thety say no,1
why then should they all comne back to that
place on June 16, '94, putting the county to ]
the expense of the mileage au-l per diem of
the trip? Conservators ol tue conty's
funds ! Mr. Turbeville buode 43 iiiles to
get there at 10 cents per mnile and $2 for
one day coming and one day returning,
amounts to $8.30. He is paid that by the]
county just to tell a few citizens that he
could build 360 feet of causeway with 30,
hands in 6 days. Conservators of the pub
lie funds ! Nor is that all, we are told by
an ex-count3y commissioner that the coanty 1
will have to pay $7 for an advertisement
which appeared before the public only 3 1
(lays wvhen the legal requirement is that it
should appear 30 days or in tour consecu
tive issues of the weekly county paper.
And this ex coma., Mr. L. Tr. Fischer, says 1
that it is required that notices relating to
the proposed work be put up in the neigh.
borhood in prominent places. These three
trips to the crossing, with lthe cost of adver
tising 3 days for bids aiiounts to $11,
enough almost to build one of the bridges.
Nw, we submit that if the commission
ers knew before their last visit that they
could not let the contract for the work it
was their simple duty to saj so. They
would have saved the co:t 'if that trip to
the coumity, and the oost of the three day

The speaker introdceed Congress- 1

thought, the most vilified, slandered,
and abused of any muan in South
Carolina. I am held forth, le said. I
as one who has been a traitor to the
people and the Reform Movement r
and have abused their trust and t
confidence in me. When I went I
into the Reform Movemueit
in 18,5 I did so because I loved free- 1:
dom and free speech and liberty of 1
thought. During all these years I
when I faced the jeers and taunts
which stung to-the quick there were s
none who doubted my loyalty then e
and all were very glad to avail tliemi- a

the Piedmont Headlight and men I
like its editors have gone back to the
Junghill from whence they sprang I a
will be found still battling for the u
principles for which this movemuent
is working and in the defence of the 1
liberties of the people.- I asked an t
:ld soldier once what was the hard- aL
est thing he ever had to do, and lie P
replied that it was to lie quiet on his V
irms while the shot and shells of the
nemy were whistling over his head
ind not return the fire. This is what G
[have had to try to do. I did it for t!
vour sake. It took self-control to lie
4uiet under fire, and it was all that I u
sould do to submit to these slanders, G
jut I remained in Washington and
ttended to my work and did what I

laps, have been more congenial for

But I want you to understand that I P
:onsider it my first duty to light w
tour battles. There is a Reform
Ufovement that is extending all over
