When the news of the action of about
twenty six men at Summerton, with
regarc~ to the court house proposition
was published last week, fired the pro
gressive citizens of the county, and
petitions hav-e been signed in several
sections urging the Representatives to
stand by the action of the county mass
meeting. That mass meeting was ad.
vertised, and its purposes stated in the
notice or call, the number present was
not many, bdit there were citizens from
nearly e'very section, it was not a meet
ing composed of a few from one neigh
borhod, it was as much a representa
tive convention, as was the one held
the year before which action was ac
eeted by the representatives. That
the majority of property owners in this
county endorse the action of the mass
meeting which adopted a resolution by
a vote of 26i to 7, urging the Represen
tatives to make provision for a new
court house, is clear, by the large num
ber of signers to the petitions circulat
ed since to Summerton meeting.
Summerton school district is paying
a tax of its own voluntary making, and
that town deserves to be commended
for its spirits of enterprise, but because
they have taxed themselves for local
improvements, it is no reason why they
should attempt to throttle the progress
of the whole county by taking advant
age of the circumstance of having in
that community two of the Rlepresenta
tives. Summerton is only a part 01
Clarendon, and the gentleman living
in that section who are members of the
legislature are not unmindful of the
fact that they represent Clarendon coun
t as a whole, and notone school district.
I~f these gentleman are disposed to be
influenced by the Stummer-ton meeting
which expressed opposition to the court
house project. we take it they will stop)
and consider the wishes of the people
of the county as exuressed in the large
ly signed petitions'that will be submit
ted to the delegation.
There are some opposed to the build
ing of a new court house, but these
same people are opposed t~o all public
imrovements, if left to them every
public school house would be closed~our
children would suffer for the need of a
primary education. They are opposed
to any and everything that will cost a
dime. whether it is for public improve
ments, schools. churches, or anything
else that is unselfish. This class sim
