SUTH IXTEKEKT IS PROPOSED HOAD *?/RK.
Much interest w"? manifested yesterday over the
proposed bonds for road improvement in Anderson
County. There ?cerned to be general fsvor to this
proposed bond issue, and many were heard to ex
press the hop? that the Anderson delegation would
do the same as the Greenville delegation, and in
clude Anderson in the list of the counties to be
favored with a campaign fort good?roads. Ander
son will have paved streets before another Christ
mas, and it would he so splendid for farmers to
have a good macadam road to tiie city limit and
then paved streets in tho city. This improvement
would be worth all it would coBt in one year, and
we have no hesitancy in guaranteeing that if this
matter were done und roads built as will be the
case In Greenville County there would not be a
kicker after the work was finished. The matter of
cost should not stand in the way. Anderson Coun
ty is lots more able to have good roads than she
Is not to havo them. The cost of not having them
is much greaser than the cost of building them.
The Greenville News has the following to say
relative to the issue f_r Greenville County., and !t
ls so applicable to Anderson County that we pass
it on to our subscribers:
Apropos the expenditure of $1,000,000 for
tho construction of permanent roads in Green
ville County, it will be well to consider certain
facts as to the taxation In the county at the
present time, and tho possibilities of an in
crease caused by the large appropriation.
Thc couny auditor's books show thal taxes
are colleted on $16,515,505 worth of property.
Of this sum, the Hy of Greenville pays upon
$5,577.010; Greenville township upon $4,661,
812; Greer upon $510,175, and the railroads
$1.318,490. The meaning of these figures in
this connection is that the city, the mills and
the railroads pay approximately 80 per cent of
tho taxation of the county, and the farmers pay
approximately 20 per cent. These estimates
may be slightly In error, but in the main they
Where does the objection to the appropria
tion como from? A part of it (if there Is any)
comes from the rural districts, and it is this
part of the kicks which we wish to consider at
the present time. The farmers will pay but
20 per cent, of the cost of tho highways. The
benefit which they will derive from the roads
will far more than offset this payment. It
would not be a wild statement to say that the
farmers wilt reap more than 50 per cent, of the
value of the highways. Certainly, then there
should not be any concerted objection to the
appropriation from the rural districts, and The
News does not believe that there is any con
certed objection. These comments, however, are
made fur the benefit of those who are Inclined
. to think that the delegation la placing a bur
densome debt upon the farmer.
There has been more or less prejudice
against the city, and tho assertion is heard, at
times, that the city ls running the county ac
cording to its own notion. Consider the facts:
The city has paved its streets at its own cost,
and the farmers use tile streets. Now the city
will bear a greater portion ot the debt of the
rural roads than the county will bear. The
city people will use these roads lt ls trjue^and
twill benefit vastly by them. Hut none will
benefit more than the farmer. This, surely, ia
not s case In which the city is "putting some
thing over" on the country.
The following ls a crpy of the bill as introduced
by the Greenville delegation:
To authorise and empowdr the supervisor of
Greenville County to issue coupon bonds of said
county In the sum of one million ($1,000,000)
dollars for the purpose of permanent road Im
provements In said county.
Section 1. That the supervisor of Greenville
county be and he is hereby authorised and em

There is great similarity between the work ot
newspapers, which have a proper conception of
their duty to the community, and ministers of the
Gospel. In fact, so generali} is this recognized that
the great trinity of agencies working for the up
building of the country are conceded to he thc* pul
pit, the school and the press. All are great edu
cators, and aro supposed to inculcate truths es
sential for the uplift of the people they serve. This
great work has to be done by fearless men, and
women who do not hesitate to do their duty in the
face of discouragements and odds, and who are not
afraid to condemn the errors of superstition, the
wrongs of the people and the signs of the com
munities. All teachers have to run counter to the
views of many, and the evils of ignorance and vice
usually breed opposition to the sources of light and
This accounts for the opposition to newspapers
when they undertake to make public the crimes
and wrongs of a community. There will be many
who will commend the fearless newspaper, and
there will be also some who will condemn. This is
on the principle that was expressed so long ago
in thlB couplet: #
No man ever felt tho halter draw
With good opinion of the law.
The Intelligencer knows what lt is to run counter
to the opinions of those whose wrong doings are
exposed-given the whito light of publicity. Re
cently this newspaper began to publish the names
of all offenders against the law, and we believe it
has had a restraining influence, and many a young
man who dreaded this publicity has been kept from
committing some act that would have brought
shame and disgrace to his family and friends. They
will thank this newspaper for this some day, even
If they do wish to "thrash" tho reporter for "putting
my name in your paper." Only the day before
yest -lay a young man accosted our news man and
told him that If hiB name went Into the paper the
following day he would kill him. Of course, our
reporter WUB terribly frightened and quaked In
wardly that he had only a short while .yet to Hile,
but the name went in just the same. There have
not yet been any funerals as a result, nor will tbero
be. Such bluffing never goes with a newspaper
man who has any grit, and most of them have a
The editor of The Intelligencer ls a great be
liever in specific attacks on crime. The prophet
Nathan Bald to David: "Thou art the man!" which
was much more forceable than if he had told David
that some king had been guilty of his crime. Un
less specific attacks are made on wrong doing those
guilty are prone to feel that the other person is
meant. No evils are corrected by kid glove hand
ling this day and time. The newspapers, the pulpit
and all teachers must teach correct living, and in
sist upon it, and when there have been violations
tbey must be strong enough to speak out de
fense of the right. Of course there will be opo
sition even to threatening, and sometimes, taking
of human life, but duty done ia a good armor plate
against the attacks-of those who prefer wrong to
right Tho Intelligencer baa nigh Idsain tor this
community and shall stand for them, and for the
enforcement of law, and correction of vice in any
form. The poor man and the rich; the friendless
and the friendly should all tare alike before the
law. Thoso officials who wink at vrong in high
places, and condemn lt in low, are not worthy of
trusr, and should be supplanted by stronger and
more manly men.
W<? should condemn any efforts to intimidate
thoso who wish to stand for the ri ?ht, and uphold,
tho hands of those who are fighting for a better'
and a cleaner city. In thia all of us will be alike
beneficiarles. Let us stand for the right in Ander

WHO RUNS THE PA FE HI
In a neighboring county a clergyman took the
editor of the local paper to task because the editor
accepted a certain advertising contract The good
man forgot that for years.the editor had given
freely of his space to help the church; had printed
columns of notices of services, meetings, suppers,
entertainments and lectures, all free. In donating
this space the editor had given more than the
equivalent ot cash. He had given publicity, and
thus had done more to support the church and pay
the minister's salary than any three members of
the church had done. An editor has but two sources
of income.-his subscription Hst and his space.
Yet, In this case,, when he sold hut apace he tost
a subscriber. Of course, no one need subscribe to
a paper unless he wishes to do so, but no sub
scriber should want to dictate to the editor as to
what ho should publish. Many editora will not ac-,
capt certain lines of advertising. Other editors
cannot afford, perhaps, to be so independent.
Business conditions often govern these matters.
A rich and prosp?rons Philadelphia weakly ot
national circulation for years declined the adver
tisements of cigarette manufacturera, - Business
hss fallen off lately for many of the big magasin?e.

Perhaps the editor feeds the money, and who shall
blame him it he sells bia apace to the American
Tobacco company? Collier's too we hear, ts letting
down the bars, just a little. That's all right. Let

near the walls of Constantinople."
Foreign Minister Sarnoff recalled
how, in the place he stood six months
ago. he had explained why Russia "in
the faca of. tee brutal attempt ot Ger
many and Austria" upon the inde
pendence of Servia and Belgium had
been able to take no other step than
to bear arms in the delan as of the
rights of nations.
In a review ot the progress of the
was M. Saaaoff said tho allies' goal
was assured. It was useless for Ger^
many and Austria to say they were
torced Into the war or to repeat Ute
old story that King Sd ward had
sought to surround Germany with
enemies, for. he declarad, the whole
world knew that the agreements en
tered into or projected by that mor.
areh were fundamentally defensive.
Germany, continued M. Saxnoff, had
sought to embroil Russia' with neigh
boring countries, especially with
Scandinavia, with Galicia, where Oer
e conservatism carried to
calling a spade a spade w
s as these are concerned.

Lrigue had flourished.
"All this," M. Saznofi declared,
'was sufficient for us to Judge of tbe
falue of the German statements re- !
yarding the alleged envelopment of j
Serroany by the Triple Entente.
Squally worthless are the assertions
that it was not Germany who began I
the war, for irrefutable documenta
exist to prove the contrary. Among *
the malevolent inventions figure re- 8
ports of Jewish programs' which RUB- (
stan troops are alleged ta have or
ganized. I seize this opportunity to *
leny thia calumny categorically, for 1;
if the Jewish population in Ute theatre t
at war is suffering, that is an inevl- f
table evil since inhabitants of regions
where there are hostilities always (

M. Sarnoff then described what he
ieclared were German efforts to sow
discord among the Allies by' spread
ing reports that one or the other ot
them desired a separate peace. The
foreign minister said these efforts had j
resulted in a pitiful failure.
Referring to. events which brought f
Turkey into the war, M. Saznofi* said: ,
