Work of the Investigating Committee.
The committee engaged in investi
gating the finaiicial alffabls of Pickons
county, worked three days the past
week in the F apervisor's office. I hey
took up the claims .f the Supervisor
and Con mi sioners where they had
charged for work as Special Commis
sioners, and found that $758.47 has
been charged to and collected from
the county for their services by some
of the Supervisors and Commission.
era during a period of ten years.
There way be other claims of this
nature found later. The committee
has only investigated the claims so
far of this nature, that show on the
books where the officers themselves
acted as Special Commissioners
The most of this was found iu the
years 1901-2 3 4.
The committee also found that a
cheek, No. 897, wans issued Apr I 29t,
1902, to J. McD. Bruce, of 'ickens,
for $697.61 in payment for certaiu
claims held by him. On the follow
ing day a clieck, No. 603, for $3,088 -

ed on the back of the stubs mucluded
the check No 897 paid the previous
day. There are other irregulari
ties which are now under investiga.
tion by the committee. '1 here are
several instances where parties who
held claims received pay for them and
afterward the same claims ware paid
again to other parties who claim to
have held certificates for same.
The above is from the Easley
Progress, whose editor, Mr. C. T1.
Martin, is chairmau of the investiga
ting committee. This committe, so
far, lhas found that several hundred
dollars have been paid out for special
commissioner work, all of wh.ich has
been known for some time.
In r egard to the double payment
of money for claims to J. McD.
Bruce and the Pickens Bank: The
cnmmittee will finid, upon thorough
examination, that this transaction was
all straight and honest. The calcula
ions, figures, claims paid off, and the
settlement sheet are all on hle in the
county commissloners' hifico and open
to inspection. '.ihey did not searchi
the records, anri jumped at what
does look like a double payment, from
the fact that duplicate numbers ap
peared on the check st ub. The clerk
of tbo board made the error in re
cording the numbers, and the Comn
mittee, seeing the num tmbers, jumped
to the conclusion that the Pickons
Bank and also Mr. Bruce had drawvn
pay for the same claima. Ini justico
to Mr. IBuce, ne hope that Mr.
Martin will be as quick to pulblish a
retraction as he was to show up the
