together with the development of the
theory of highway boud calculations.
In introduction the statement is made
that the practice of issuing bond.?

it it iiueui is reinforced by the follow
In ij<v. counties, or 41.1 pej cent
j. ail the counties in this country,
there were outstanding highway bomb;
on January l, 191-1.. The total amount
of such bonds voted, a.* ascertained
by the ollice of public roads up to that
date, was $2SU,5.*>ij,l)73, of which
township bonds alone amounted to
$57,15 .718. The amount o?outstand
ing local highway bonds on January
I, 1913, was approximately $202.007.
This amount was increased dur
ing the year 1913 by ouvrent isiuos
noted below, but -was also slightly
decreased by maturing payments.
The county highway bond is es
sentially a municipal bond; that Ms. a
bond issued by a public corporation.
Statistics indicate that all municipal
bonds are regarded as excellent in
vestments, and are frequently used by
bunks as a second reserve. The
amount of highway bonds issued Is in
dicated by comparison with the $79.
741.688 of irrigation and drainage
bonds authorized in tho interval from
1907 to 1912, inclusive.
"The progress of the local highway
bond movement is further indicated by
the diagram of first issues for the
interval 1900-1913. Utites of first is
sues were reported, hOAvever, for only
?70 counties. First issues for 1912 and
1913 are practically complete.
"During thc past three jyears coun
ty, district and township highway
apd bridge bonds were voted as fol
lows: 1911, |29t200.022; 1912, $32,
022,703; 1913, $50,145,706?making n
total of $111,668,181.
"There havfe nlso been voted State
highway bonds which total $158,51)0,

1914. is, therefore, $445.117,073.".
The bulletin presents din'grams.

the economic vuliip of the market
road, the cost of highway construction
and maintenance._thc methods of is
suing bonds and" the total cost of
highways. It'dwells upon legal re
strictions on bond IssueB and the need
for highway engineer, and, discussing
the advantage of bond issues, says:
"The issuance of highway bonds is
essentially a method of capitalizing
tho resources of a community for the
purpose o fcreating improved high
ways. The 1'u ml a men la! advantage of
the bond plan is tho construction of
a good system of ronds at once, but
there are secondary advantages in
building roads in long stretches'.and
in the planning of tbe maintenance,
of such roads.
"The question is hot merely wheth-;
er1 a community shall Incur a debt;
if is also a uuestlon as to whether,
the maximum economic efficiency! and
the full development of the public
wnalth will be best promoted by using
public credit. *
"Emphasis ban been placed In this
publication r.vi the strictly measurable
economic benefit.? to a community
from road Improvement. There are
many additional ecotomic benfUs 'and"
very great social benefits which, are
no treadily 'measured.- Increased
school and. church attendance Is
shown In repeated instances to me an
immndiato ?onsenuence of better
?ivnls. The cre-ierBl stimulus to busi
ness is dirncult to evaluate. It Ib evi
dent, however, that business- and pro
fessional men of all classes are among
the first to* be benefited. This is es
pecially true: of physicians. The cost

ly^of tires, It becoming yearly'a large
Item,-and v'.a road condition U a
most, serious factor" for the automobil
st and tbe users'of motor trucks.
"It should * be understood at the
outset that the question of debt It
self is relatively lesv important than
the question, of sound planning and.
good'management of the loan. The
very presence of the improved . rpa^
system Increases .the value ^of the
county property, and thereforo the,
resources' supporting the loan. It is
a well-established business principle
that extension of credit within safe
limits is necessary for maximum r?
sulte Tho financing of all priva to en*
terprlces by bond issues has increas
ed very greatly. ?n -ISOS statistics
show that during the preceding decade
bonds were issued as a method ?f cap
italizing public and private enter
prises at the rate of 9583,0(10,000."
Meeting an argument which is
sometimes advanced the bulletin says,
i "In planning the highway system or
tho main market roads,, as mentioned
above, it will be found necessary to
omit many roads tho Improvement of
which Is greatly desired by abutting
landowners. The fact that such .'pro

rule, main market roads reach Hie ma- I
jority of producing areas, and when
they ar?' improved, all lancj values
tend to increase. ?
"The fad that cities and larger
'owns are frequently taxed for bond
;:isues to build highways outside of
their own limits is sometimes'made
a point of debate in bond elections.
It is argued that because a large part
of the county wealth is within' the
corporate limit of such cities and
towns, highway bond money should al
iq be used to construct tlieii- streets,
it is even urged that tue expenditure
should be made proportionate to the |
assessed valuation within the city j
limits. It the proceeds Of highway
bond issues were distributed in thi . j
way their purpose in many cas?s |
would he defeated. The primary ob- |
j ct of the county highway bond Usue !
Is to build county market roads, and
not to improve city streets, although;
u :igh percentage o? tiic assessed :
I valuation may be cny property. It Is
now knowu that the expenditure of !
! city taxes on country roads is a
I souifd principle, and that it is one of
the be.-t features of Stale old for
highways, lu Massachusetts the city
of llostou pays possibly JO per cent
j of the total State highway fund, but
! not a mile of Slate-aid highway has
been built within its limits. New
Vork city also pays about 60 per cent.
' of the con of the S5:ite highway
bonds. Some State laws prohibit the
expenditure of proceeds of Stato
highway bonds within corporate limits
of cities or towns. The improvement
I of market roads results in improved
marketing conditions, which benefit
the city. Most cities are essentially
dependent upon th; surrounding
country for their prosperity and de
velopment. The development of sub*
urban property for residence purposes
is also dependent upon highway con
ditions, and it is becoming evident
yearly that whatever makes for an
increase in rural population must he
encouraged. Since the introduction of
motor traffic, country highways have
been used to unlncreasing extent by
city residents. In fact, the cost of
maintaining many country highways
has been greatly increased by the
presence of city-owned motor vehicles.
The general advance of facilities for
doing country business from town
headquarters when roads are improv
ed is no Inconsiderable facter in the
commercial life of a community."

of Lownd -sviile was rushed to the

spreading the report that the negro

He ports were also current in An
derson Thursday night that a second,
negro had been shot at Lowndcsvitio.
This report was also erroneous inso
far us til2'.statement that the shoot
ing occurred at Lowndesvltlc. The
facts are that a negro was shot in
the leg on the plantation of a white
man living between Iva end Starr.
This was the .result of a personal
difficulty between the negro and the.
white man who is said to have shot
liim, and has no'connection whatever
with the Lowndosviltn affair.
Xo Whites Arrested.
Reports were rife on the street;;
yesterday that there had been other
arrests, including while people, In
connection with ilie murder of Mrs.
Scott. As a matter of fact but one nr;
rest has been made since Charlie
Logan anil Bon Massey were placed
under arrest the '! " of Mrs. Scott's
murder, and this *. on is Will John
son, who was arrested yesterday antl
carried to Abbeville jail by Magistrale
J. G. Huckaboe and assistants." Will
Johnson Is the negro who spent the
night with Charlie Logan the night
Mrs. Scott was murdered.
In conversation over long distance
telephone late yesterday afternoon
Magistrate Huckabee told The Intel
ligencer that no white people had
been arrested in connection with the
affair, and no other arrests had been
made with the exception of that of
Tgly Humors Abroad.
As is usual in all cases of this kind,
various ugly rumors are afloat. In
fact, one can hear almost anything he
wants to hear about the murder.
Stories are going the rounds that
white people are mixed up In the kil
ling of Mrs. Scott, and that the negrp,
or negroes, who did her to death were
paid to do so by negroes. One report
went so far as to say that one of the
negroes had confessed that white peo
ple had paid him $t>0 to put Mrs.
Scott out of the way.
So far as evidence bearing out these
reports is concerned, the reports are
as empty as the idle wind. There are
number of people in close touch with
the case who believe that the death
of Mrs. Scott was the result of a con
spiracy, and there are some who l>e
lleve that all the facts in connection
with hr.r death have not yet been un
covered) But so far as there being any
evidence in hand so far to hear out
these rumors, there Is nothing to it.
Theories of\ .Shouting*
Of course, every one has his theory
of the shooting of Earl Burton. Some
have, advanced the theory that Bur
ton was shot by-some person who
was afraid that the negro might talk
ami tell something about the murder
of Mrs. Scott that would Implicate
him. the person firing the shot. There
are scores of other theories advanced
c-.mcerning the mysterious affair, but
theories are not solving the puzzle
and a great many of them are so
redlculcus as to be almost disgusting.

The only development of impor

dition ever witnessed by the jnost of
us. The war In Europe, to a great ex
tent, paralizcd business pa^.cUwwsv?.
the wheels of commerce. This South
land lias suffered by far more than
any other part of our country?and
why?because we had nothing to
ecel but COTTON. It has proved con
clusively to all thinking people that
thp ONE (CROP idea of our Southern
States is wrong. Look at*the price of
beef caitle, hogs, corn, wheat, Hour,
oats, peas ami in fact iwcrything,
with the exception of "Poor old Cot
ton"?What do we find??R. cord pri
ces for all these articles in almost
every instance. And the one thing
that is such a stinging rebuke; to us
all ?Is the fact, that all the things
mentioned above, and many others,
can be grown as successfully In our
Southern Country as any place under
the Sun. I believe this section holds
the .record in the production of corn
oats, hay, potatoes, etc., as to the
yield per acre, Then why won't we
raise something-'to sell .besides COT
TON? You often hoar to that ques
tion, this answer: There is no use try
ing to ralBe the things mentioned
above for .thero is no market Tor such;
If you raise'anything In oxccsb of lo
cal requirements,- and, there is a de
