I'AY OF COUNTY COMMISSIONER. 1
There is no more responsible otlico in
the County than that of County Commissioner.
There is no officer who is
harder worked, cursed louder and paid '
jnoro grudgingly than ho. The finan- *
rial conduct of the County is upon his ?
shoulders. With the care of over live r
million dollars worth of property and '
the actual manipulation of from twelve '
to twenty thousand dollars they are given
the miserable pittance of about two 8
hundred and forty dollars a piece per P
annum. Is this an incentive for men of n
financial ability to attend to the afl'airs
of i County ? And it must he admitted s
that only such as have financial ability 11
and sound judgment should ho allowed
to occupy the office. It will be answerod
that there are plenty of men ready ^
and willing to take the office Rt the sal- (j
nry given?but tluit is not the question. 0
The County should command tho best
business talent in it and until she pays s
\vell for it she need not expect to get it. ?,
In our editorial last week on the suba
ject of Mr. Blake's communication to ^
this paper we said wo thought the com- j
munication ought to have been sent to
tho Press ami Banner inasmuch as it
purported to be an answer to that paper, s
Since then we have b-arned that tho n
communication was sent to tho J'rcss s
find Jiannar and it is therefore proper A
that we <?*> Mr. fllako tho j.istico to tl
make mention of it. a

Oov. Thompson has kindly sent us n
?*opy of bin message, and n pamphlet ^
containing a list of the pardons granted
hy hi in and the reasons for granting the
same. The only two prisoners from ?
Abbeville who were pardoned are War- f,
r??n Loinnx and Kpliraim Scott. The v
former was convicted beforo Judge
Colli ran October, 1882, of larceny, and
sentenced to two j'ears in the peniten- R
tiary. On Doccniber 31, 1883, his sentence
was commuted to ono 3'ear in the
penitentiary, on the recommondution of I
the Judge and Solicitor, and manv lead- ^
ing citizens. I1
Kphraiin Scott was convicted in Fob- t'
ruiivy, 1882, before .Judge Aldrieh, of v
burglary and larceny, sentenced to imprisonment
for three years in the penitentiary.
The Defendant appealed, but
in consequence of the delay caused by
the loss of the Judge's report of the "
case the appeal was not heard till April,
1884, when it was dismissed, l'ardon
recommended byJudgo and Solicitor, u
because he liad served two years and j
four months in jail, and was suffering j.
from dropsy, and unfit for work in the ^
penitentiary. Sentence was commuted
on April 24, 1884, to two years and six
months imprisonment in County jail. ti
Thk Goveruor's message is a compre- 1
hensive and well written State paper.
It deals with the public debt, which is
now $0,622,270.02, with the question of r
the tax laws, with the public schools, in ?
regard to which the Governor again rec,U'
mo poncy ol local taxation, (
witli the South Carolina College, Claflin *
University, tho Citadel and the charitable
and penal institutions, the Militia,
tho Railroad Commission, the Depart- cl
tnont of Agriculture, and Clio State Ag- f
ricultural and Mochnnioal Socioty. 1
Since, however, there is nothing of special
importance relating to these various
subjects demanding attention, the Governor
makes no particular recommendation
regarding them. The report is
quite an interesting paper, and we are ?
sorry that the pressure upon our col- | <>
umns this week prevents our publishing jj
it in full. t

he Order to the amount of .flGO.tXK)
row out of a suit brought by I.reckinidge
to restrain the present Supreme
'reasurer from removing the office from
ouisvillc to St. Louis.
Col. Breckinridge has behaved very
habbily to the order that gave him
rominence. Hut his scheming# and
laclr'nations cannot injure it, for its
asis is solid, and its foundation unhaken.
The stability of the Order with
;s 130,(XX) members is beyond dispute.
Tim Comptroller General's report is i
iteresting. I Io reports, among other |
tiings, that Abbeville County is out of
ebt. We had no4- known this, but were
f the opinion that the necessity of
uilding bridges and other causes left it
omewhat in debt. At any rate public
aper is shaved nt a ruinous discount in
iq 113' cases.
The report recommends that the time

of the foiling olf in receipts the 0.

connection with the C. it G. Road, and
would suit as well to make it at Greenrood.
Of course if it is true, as has

ho scheme is impracticable.

Q'lilo a large number of tho citizens
of tho town and of the surrounding
country was hold in the Court House
Thursday evening to consider the prae.ticahilitv
of building a lhiilroad from
Abbeville to Verdery. The meetiyg
\r.?s railed to order and Judge Cothran
was nominated as C'haiimnn and Mr. S.
0. Cason was requested to act as Secretary.
Judge Cothran explained tin,- nature
of the meeting ami hi few happy
words urged the establishment of the

adopted after an eat nest discussion and
various "pints" of order.

the future welfare ami prosperity of
the town much at heart, realize the great

the great discrimination which exists
against this place in matters of freight
is daily injuring our trade and business
prospects, and whereas we believe that
a Railroad constructed between this town
and the town of Verdory wuuhl not only
a (lord us the desired relief but would
bo the cheapest and quickest mode of
relief, lie it resolved
I. That immediate steps be taken to
secure the construction of a Railroad between
Abbeville and Verdery.
II. That our Representatives in the
General Assembly be petitioned to secure
at the present session of the Legislature
a charter for such a Railroad
III. That said Railroad Company shall
be chartered and known as the Augusta
and Abbeville Railroad Company.
IV. That ihe capital stock of said
Company be $10,<MK), to be expended in
the grading of said Road, said stock to
be increased to .$15,<X)0 if necessary.
V. That the shares of said capital
stock be $25 each, and that I lie charter
do authorize the capital stock to be
raised either by subscription or b}- taxation,
or by the issuing of bonds by the
corporation of the town of Abbeville
non-taxable as may be deemed advisable.
VI. That the following named persons
no nominated as corporators of said
Railroad Company, to wit: J. F. Lyon,
NV.A. Teinpleton, 1). A. L\ Jordan, L. W.
White, J. S. Cothran, R. E. Hill, T. C.

L. W. Smith, J. C. Douglass and S.
Upon the discussion of the first section
of the resolutions, Col. Uobertson
said that he favore<l the building of the
Road to Greenwood.
Mr.VV. N. Graydon agreed with Colonel
Hubertson, and argued streuuouslv
for Greenwood. He said that if graded
to Greenwood, any syndicate would iron
the Road, and there would bo h fair
prospect of extending it westward, to
Klberlon and Atlanta, and eastward to
Florence aud the North.
Mr. W. O. Hradloy said that ho was a
(jreenwood man so far as this scheme
was concerned, but that he thought Mr.
lino ill's position in the matter left it no
longer in controversy whore we should
tap the A. & K. H. H. lie went on to
say that Mr. Iiaoul the President of the
(.ieorgia Uentral Road, in a letter had
expressed his willingness to iron the
Road if graded to Verdery, hut that lie
would have nothing to do with it if
graded to Greenwood. This the speaker
said was conclusive, and lie was in
favor of grading the Road to Verdery.
Mr. L. \V. White said that with due
deference to the opinion of others he
was pronounced in favor of the Verdery
termination. That the Road was to
he simply a branch Road and was too
much in the same direction as the branch
we already havo. That the road to
Verdery would be five miles shortor as
far as equipping was concerned and

more expensive route than to Yordery.
That it was not so much a question of
travel* but of freight in which everybody
was interested ami needed immediate
Mr. 0. T. Calhoun thought that the
Road to Troy would be best and that
would probably hasten (he completion
of the Carolina Cumberland Gap and
Chicago Road. lie enquired of Judge
Cothran the prospects of that Road.
Judge Cothran replied that there was a
meeting of the Executive Committee,
called at Aiken the latter part of January?that
nothing definite could be
stated now ; Governor llagood was
hopeful of the ultimate eouipltion of
Mr. E. II. Gary was in favor of the
Itoad to Verdery because it was the
shortest, most accessible, and the prospects
for ironing it were better. lie advocated
Mr. K. JO. Hill agreed with Mr. Gary.
Judge Lyon said that he had gone to
Augusta a year ago and in conversation
with Captain Haoul, this gentleman asked
him "Why don't you grade the Road
to Verdery ?" that this gave him first
the idea of grading the Road there;
that in two recent letters to Mr. Verde
ry ex-l'rcsidont of the A. A K. R. R.,
this gentleman said that the Road to
Vordery was decidedly the most practicable,
and that Mr. Raoij^ would equip
the Road if graded to Yerdery. That
he would not do the same if graded to
Greenwood. This in the opinion of
J udgo Lyon was decisive of the question.
After so.ne discussion on the other
sections of tho resolutions they were
A committee consisting of Messrs. L.
