State of South Carolina,)'
County of Pickens. J
To His Honor, D. A, Townsend,
Wo, the GraYid* Jury, beg to
make this our final presentment at
this term of the Court: .
1st. We have passed on all
the bills handed to us by the solicitor
except three, and have rendered
such findings thereon aB in
our judgment the facts justified;
the three bills not passed upon
were returned to solicitor at' his
2nd. W6 recommend and urge
the members of the legislature
from this county to endeavor to
have such laws enacted as will afford
protection to the public against
the dftnirer fr/-?rr? nnlr. I
?O? -v.wM.vi.ig aavsu* wu
mobiles traveling the public highways
in a reckless manner. Many
accidents have recently b?en
brought to our attention which resulted
from this evil.
8rd. We have accepted and endorsed
the report of the special
committee appointed to look into

that their recomiuenda*
tion be strictly complied with.

County of Pickens. \
To the gentlemen of the Grand
We, tho undersigned committee,
appointed by your body fco look
especially into the affairs of the various
officers ?bf the county and
such other matters as might have
been brought to our attention, beg
to report aB follows:
let. We have made as thorough
examination as practicable Within
three days allowed by law.
2nd. Wo have examined all
the puclic offices of tho county and
so for as our examination went the
books seemed to be kept in a buni-*
ness-liko manner and the officers
soem to bo doing their duty.
3rd. We have carefully chocked
the books of the county dispenser,
the Clerk of Court and the
County Supervisor with those of
the County Treasurer, and we find
the Treasurer to lie properly
charged with all monies coming to
| his hands from these officers.
tiu. we una mat tne Uounty
Superintendent of Education has
in his oflioe several charts which
nro new and supposed to have been
left there by some agents or publishers.
These charts have boen
in his ollicc for several years, and
the Superir.tondont has made dili?
gent search to find their owner,
but has been unable to do bo, and
we recommend that the County
Supervioor be authorized and di*
rected to sell these charts for storage
and turn the money into the
general county fund.
5th. Wo roport tho outstanding
debts of the county at this time
to be us follows, to-wit:
Sinking fund note (interest paid
to May, 1901.) $15,716.26
Aaron ftoggs note (int.
paid to Jan. 15, 1904) 2,000.00

It. F. Smith note (int.
paid to J.ine 28, 1904.) 640.00
Total due on notes
without interest $'23,929.85
To got tho exact- indehtenesB of
the County at this time we must
add to this the outstanding claims
on tho books and it is estimated
by the Clerk of the County Board
of Commissioners that there is not
over Ton Thousand Dollars of
rutting this to the amount of the
notes above stated you will observo
that tho total outstanding debt of
the county vll approximate 133,
0th. Wo have examined the
nublic buildings of the county and
report that for sanitary reasons a
well should be dug; at the Couuty
Jail 011 the North aide of that jail
JaB we are fearful that the present
' well has been the cause of some ol
the fever heretofore existing in the
jailor's family and we believe that
a well on the North side whore it
will be free from drainage and
trom contamination with the sewerage
system will afford an abundance
of pure water. We note
also that there are some leaks in
the roof of the jail which wo recommend
be mended as tpeedily as

to perform that service.
First, an amendment to the constitution

legislature, is to be voted on at the
general election in November. This
is an important matter and concerns
every taxpayer in the State,
and if adopted will Bave at least
$50,000 evfry other year. This
matter should Ik; explaiued and
the people fully informed so thai
they may kijow how to vote intelligently.
Another amendment proposed
to the constitution is to give the
legislature the right to enact "local
or special laws concerning tht
laying ortt, opening, altering 01
working roads or highways, and
concerning the providing for the
ago at Which citizous should be
subject to road duty, and concerning
drainage." This proposed
amendment is equally it not more
important to the people than the
other and should have the earnest
thought of the candidates.
Another act of the legislature
which should bo ventilated is that
one which provides for the establishing
and removal of dispensaries.
Thia act provides that dis<
pensaries can be established in an>
county bv a majority of the votof
aud can be removed in tho name
way, but it prcviileB that if the
people vote it out a tax of one half
mill annually shall be levied on all
the taxable property of the county
for the purpose of defraying the
expenses of the enforcement ol
the dispensary law in such county,
Every candidate for the legislature
should olearly define his position
with reference to this law, and 1
call upon oach one to say on the
stump whether ho is in favor of it
or not. If the biennial session*
Amendment is adopted, then tin
next legislature should further
amend the constitution by making
the terms of all officers four yean
and have oloctlons every foui
years, The candidates should ex
press themselves on this subjeci
also. A Votor.

, matter to be voted on the 8th of

sessions of the legislature,
, instead of annual sessions. I think

Dear Bonfcinel-Journal. I will
try to give you a few sketches
from this part of the county.
We were visited by a light
shower of rain Thursday evening,
which was the first we have had ia
several weeks. Crops began to
look like they were parohed in the
heat of the day before the rain fell.
I notice some report rain last Saturday,
but it never come this way,
Children's day services at Antioch
tho second Sunday was a success.
The little fellows spoke well,
and that spoke well for both child- - ,
ren aud parents. It showed that'
they had the proper training. The
candle lecture by the Supt. Mr. W.
W. Aiken, was grand, and the addroBses
given by Revs. B. E. Grandy
and A. J. Manly, Hon. C. E.
Robinson and Maj. Q. M. Lynch
were very impressive, noble and
aoul uplifting. Evorybody seemed
to be deeply interested by their
Speeches. We extend to thom our
heartfelt thanks for their speeches,
and extend to thom a hearty welcome
to meet with us again. The
good ladies had all that heart
could wiBh to satisfy the innerman
at noon. The musio wag in charge
of the secretary of the Suuday
school, and Profs. E. M. and R. M.

county, last Buuday and report a
good time. The professor had an
appointment to sing at that placo
on Sunday morning, and they
made him Up a music school before
he loft the church. Those
people know a good tiling when
they gee it. Wo congratulate you
Little Iliver folks* in securing such
? good teacher. I know whereof I
Bpeak. Any community needing
a music school can not do better
than to employ the professor.
Mrs. Washington Galloway, of
Toxaway, N. 0., returned last
Tuesday from a short visit to hor
daughter, Mrs. J. L. Murphreo.
Mrs. James McKee of Toxaway,
