MR. JOHNSON RIGHT OR WRONG?
The History of a Bi~l That Passed at
the 1919 Sessiort bf Legislature.
I have been accused of'oppcsing the
passage of the bill, or law as it is
now, known as the recent county act.
To that I humbly plead guilty, and
recorded myself as such and will give
to the people of Clarendon the history
of and some of the provisions that
this law carries and by that I am
willing to be judged as to whether
I was right wrong.
First if the readers will pardon me.
I will state that there are somethings
going on in this county affairs that
the public have never been informed
of and it appears to me that the peo
ple are paying for some music and
deprived of the dancing-so it will bet'
necess ary for. me to ~give to the
people part of that part of Clarendon's
Your delegation was called together
at the supervisor's office by your sup
ervisor and your senator last Decem
ber and at that meeting after the
business for which we had met for
had been disposed of, the supervisor
informed us that it wasvery neces
sary that the road or commutation
law of 1917 should Pe repealed, as
any law that carried a official (work'
or pay) provision was inoperative.
When he was asked what would he
suggest instead ? He replied~, not today
but probably would send us a bill
later when we got over to Columbia,
to that he kept his promise. So dur
ing the third week of the session here
comes a bill framed by the supervisor
with the 'request "that we enact into
law." Now I could not see in this
bill that was for the special benefit of
this county, but on the other hand it
relieved -the supervisor of the very
one thing that he was elected for, to
wit: To repair and build roads and
bridges in Clarendon County. I will
quote here part of section 4 of the,
law, "The said board of District Com
missioners are hereby charged with
the duty of constructing and main
taining the public roads in their re
spective districts by the use of the
most modern improved methotis and
as prescribed by the Couinty Board of
Road Commissioners." Also from
section 14 it says: "The County
Board of Commissioners shall keep
and operate a chain gane for con
victs for building and renairing roads
in their respective districts, and fur
nish them with ail the n'cessary
equipments therefor; Provided, the
chain gang shall be worked uner the
(rection of the chairman of each
board of District Commissioners when
onerating within their respective dis
tricts, and the cost of maintenance
anil support of said chain gant- shall
he apportioned among the said dis
trict according to the work done."
Now what (o we fin that the sup
ervisor has charged that the Legisla
ture has taken out of his hands the
repairing of the roads of this county
even before his successors had been
appointed and commissioned.
Another on'e of my reasons for op
posing this bill was that these dis
trict' com missiouners are empowered
with the handling of between fifty
anl sixty thousand dollars of the
people's money and the law does not
reonire that they shou11d give any
bond to protect the county. I will
quote here the latter part of .wction
4: "And all money paid out of the
County Treasury for the roads of rnv
d istri'-t shall be paid upon warrants
signed by the ch'iirman of the di strict
boar i and countersignr( by the see
retary and approved by the county
o'erisor." Also section 3. "The
chairman of each of District Conmis
:oneru shall make a quarterly report
to the supervisor of any money re
'"'ed and expended in and for th'ee
" lpective districts. The county

them a valuable remed)Cty. At that
time my kidneys uere giving me1 con
Ssidlerable ti'ouble. I had batckachles
adpains across my loins. I used
Doain's Kidney Pills and they gave
me pl romlpt andl lasting relie'f."
AFTIER A LAPSE OF SEVE'N
