-Sumter Item, October 27th.
South Carolina seems to be about to
embark on a voyage on unchartered
seas, and the worst thing we see about
the matter is the fact that McLaurin,
Stevenson, McQueen, Lawson and sev
eral others we might name, who have
contributed so much to shaping the
remedial legislation now under consid
eration retire from office on November
3. It would be great if there were in
Marlboro, Chesterfield and Darlington,
Democratic nominees who would see
thc-ir way to step aside for these men
so they could continue in the service
of the state in this omergency, and we
are inclined to think also that Senator
Tiliman miiht do well to resign just at
this juncture in order to make way for
some one who is physically and men
tally able to represent the state in the
United States Senate. This is a junc
ture when South Carolina has need of
the best talent and experience at her
Tea Cent Coton Wanted.

Brief Smznemy of School Imprevamsts kfo
1907 to 1914.
The various forms of school
improvement being continuous
by nature, and frequently the
efforts of one year being merged
into the operations of another
year, it becomes a difficult mat
ter to single out and show spe
citically what has been accom
plished in any one year, I have
therefore prepared a brief ex
hibib covering the past six years,
which wili give some idea of the
growth and development of
school affairs in ihis county.
At the close of the fiscal year
June 30th, 1909, the sum total of
the school revenue for this coun
ty was $38,961.33, wbich includ
ed a balance of $66,19.021brought
over from June 30uh, 1907, leav
ing the net amount of resources
of $32,342.31. This amount in
cluded $4833.26 recei red from
the dispensary school fund, and
$600 from state high school
fund, leaving the net amount re
ceived from the usual sources of
The. total revenue from atl
sources for the fiscal year ejad
ing June 30th, 1014,was $65,182.
76. This amount includes items
from the following sources; Bal
ance June 30th, 1913, $12,436.71.
From the State for various pu'
poses. such as High school aid,
Term extension, Rural graded
schools, Buildings, Libraries,
5,264.79. Being a total of
$17,701.50. Deducting.this from
the grand total: leaves the net
resources $47,461.26. Comparing
the net resources six years ago
with the net sesources for the
year just closed. we find a gain
Contractea by sources from
which these various amounts are
received, we find the amounts as
For 1907-08. 1913-'14.
Poll tax .....$4643.80......S5494.07
Three mill tax 11,323.39 .... 12,694.17
Special........8700 95...... 16119.48
The three mill tax for 1907-08
showed tha there was some
thing like a property valuation
for the county of $3741130,
while for the year 1913-14, the
valuation was- about $4231390,
being a gain in the taxable ~va'ue
of $4,902.60. This acconuts for
the normal increase in the gain
in the three mills tax. The most
extraordinary gain is to be seen
in the amounts raised by special
Six vears ago there were in
the county 28 school districts,
only 20 of which were then levy
ing a special tax for school pur
poses. During the past six
years there were organized and
created five new school districts,
and two joint districts with oth
er counties. Consolidations and
transfers have been effected in
two instances, leaving at the
present time 32 districts, of
which, all, except five are now
levying a special tax for the sup
port of their schools. Many of
the districts have increased their
levies from time to time, some
now going the limit of eigbt
mills straight school tax. This
does not include any bond tax.
During the past six years
there have been conducted
twenty-one elections for special
levies for the support of the
schools, and five elections for
bond issues for new school build
ings, making a total of twenty
six elections held towards the
improvement of our schools.
Thus we see that the people
have rallied to the support of
their schools in a very commend
able manner, and have more
than doubled the amount of
special taxes during the past six
When the dispensary was vot
ed out, many thought our school
would be crippled very severely,
but the way in which the people
have responded to their needs
cannot be more str-ikingly shown
than by this comparison of the
amounts raised by special taxes
during the period herein men -
In the way of better buildings,
our people are also responding
in a very encouraging man ner-.
During this period, there have
been erected in Olarendon coun
ty for the white schools
alone 19 new-,buildings
costing in the aggregate more
than one aundred thousand dol
lars. Various other buildings
Larec been repaired and impr-ov
ed, so that the entile improve
ment to the white school build
ings and grounds foots up some
thing like $118,000. There has
also been marked improvement
in the character of the buildings
used by the colored schools.
The figures are facts given
above do not include any for the
If time permitted, I might
enter into other statistics from
whice we might draw interesting
lessons. My object in present
ing the above facts, is that all
may see what is being done for
the improvement of our schools,
and that if there are districts
represented here today in which
there has no substantial im
provements bee imade, tha: you
may tak~e encouragement from
what others h. ye done.
It would not be amiss for each
one of you to study the condi
tions of your own districts and
see if perchance there may not
be an opportunity awaiting you
to go to work for the advance
ment of your own community.
During the time I have been
in office, I have stood for better
teachers, better buildings, more
money and longer terms. It
shall be my object in the future
to stand for the same and to
work for the same whenever the
opportvnity presents itself.
