Anderson County will not bc ono whit hohind tho
city when lt comos lo Improving Its highways of
travel. Elsewhere in this Issue will he found the
<opy of the hill which will he pas.ied hy the legis
lature provldiiiR for a bond is.me for building per
manent roads throughout the county. In a month's
time we shall have a chant e to speak on this Im
portant matter, and we believe that the verdict on
litis eouiiiy bond issue will be as unanimous as will
Hie verdict of the people of Anderson who will vote
on the matter of a bond Issue for paving the street?
of the city. In this matter as In the paving com
mission for thc city, progressive and competent
tuen have been named as commissioners, and thus
the county will be assured a wisc and progressive
policy in handling thia large sum of money.
Greenville County will have $1,000,000 to expend
on her roads, and Richland will have $1,250.000.
Anderson will make splendid progress with the
three-quarters of a million dollars she will hav*?.
This sum and what will he available In the city will
make approximately $1.000,000 to be expended for
highway improvement in thin county during the
next year. Employment will be furnished people,
and money will be put in circulation which will aid
business generally. The provision in the act pro
viding that wjrk shall bc done simultaneously in
all the townships of the county, so that all sections
will benefit at the same time, and give the entire
county some good roads. Of course this sum will
not build permanent highways all over the county.
With the amount to be voted there should be built
at least 250 miles, possible 200 miles or macadam
or surraced roads, and this number of miles will
put a good road In reach of every citizen of the
county, and will traverse the county with all the
The following benefits to be derived from good
roads are set forth by E. J. Prescott of Wise County.
Va., who wro.j in the Manufacturers Record or what
was accomplished in his county by the expenditure
bf $1,100.000 for prcmanent roads:
Benefits, briefly stated, are:
1. Increased value of farm lands.
2. Reduced cost of transporting farm pro
ducts to market, as well as reduced cost in
all kinds or hauling.
3. Benefits to furnier? In a social way.
4. Has enabled a large number of our citi
zens to own their homes and to go to and
from their work on bicycles, motorcycles,
automobiles and buggies.
The benefits to our working people can
hardly be overstated. Hundreds ot thc men
working at the coal mines have purchased
small tracts of land several miles from their
' places of work, have built their own homes
1 and find time to cultivate a small ac reage In
addition to their dally work.
6. Has materially benefited our public
schools, 1908-enrollment, 6,900; attedanco,
. 46 per cent.; 1913-enrollment. 8,501; atten
dance,. 65. per cent.; 1908-number of build
ings, 79; 1914-number of buildings, 74,
Thia increased attendance is attributed by
our county school superintendent In a lsrge
rnea*'*r*'to our now road system;
6. The Improvement in the properties
along our highways ls very gratifying. Tho
farmers sud otber property owners are build
ing better fences and painting them, from
buildings are being improved, the old fence
corners cleared out and the whole county ls
putting or: ?jew life. While this -mprovemcnt
is only In Its beginning, lt ls already, so
marked that one would hardly recognize the
" county as (he aame.

lt formerly took, and even more than this,
the. Improvement In the living conditions of
the employes has already proved of -great
value to the operators. When a workingman
ls so sltustcd that he can own hts own home
he is worth two of the class of men who
chango about from plant to clent and never
' get really settled.
8. Tho actual pleasure to everybody of bo
lng able to drive or ride or oven walk along
a beautiful highway cannot be expressed In
doliera and cents.
The ox team, which ...^.d to be the prevail
ing draft animal In Tclse County, has already
disappeared from our highways.
There ls no sympathy between the office of the
rovernor and the attorney general's office. That ls
?lain. There Is absolute lack of sympathy; the in
ompatlhlllty ls evident. Every Ideal and purpose
if the governor seems to find its antithesis In the
The governor's office is la need of legal advice
erquently. It must be advice that ls correct and
rbolsesome. If the governor should err, be would
ie held responsible by the people.of the State. The
rovernor ls chosen to administer the laws, not to
ut er pr?t them. *
But. ?hen hts common sense and business Judg
ment and conscience tell bim that the law should
* construed thus and so. and the attornsv aen
ral'a office gives opinions contrariwise, is lt hut
atural for the governor to loee confidence In the
udgment of the office that construes the law.
One of the speakers In the discussion in the leg
ilature Friday night declared that the law ls tho
sw and there is hut one way to construe lt. The
martest lawyer who has ever been assistant jaw
ey general. Judge C. P. Townsend of Bennett.wllle.
nee wrote an opinion sustaining the constltutlon
llty of the dispensary law. He declared that he
oyld Just aa easily prepare an argument to the
ontrary. one that would be sustained in court.
The erlronment. thereafter, haa something to do
rith the manner in which an oplnloa ia rendered,
tr. Manning has declared to the people ot this
Kate that his policy would be for a rigid enforee
lect or the law. His calling for aid from his legal
r constituted adviser would be like a Cttlsen wak
ng up a policeman to atop Ute procesa of eon*?
ttedemeanor. For the attorney general's office
earns not to have been aroused to an appreciation
f what ls going on.
Mr. Manning'A common sense and conscience
rge upon him the belief that these race meeta in
Charleston were in violation of tho law. Other
State- ha lng similar laws wore able to outlaw the
races. Vet thc opinion or the office of the attorney
general of this Stste waa to the effect that thc races
were permitted by and under the law.
Mr. Manning's common sense fold him that it was
not of legal effect to muster out the whole national
guard with one stroke of thc pen. The attorney
general's office had Bald that it could be done.
Other lawyers Rave contrary advice. The national
guard 1.? Intact today.
Mr. Manning will need advice upon tho State
hospital matters, upon liquor matters, upon num
erous matters upon which his views appear to bc
antipodal to the opinions of the attorney general's
Mr. Manning needs advice that will be dependable
and that will bc in keeping with the promises he
has made to the people. These two notable In
stances cited are not thc only one3 In which his
common sense, supported hy the judgment of abb
lawyers, ia directly antithetical to the declared
opinions of thc attorney general's office. Should
not such consideration a:- these move the governor
to consult attorneys In syn pa thy with his ideals?
He has mnde no accusation against thc legal de
partment of the State, but the records too plainly
show tho fact that the governor in attempting a
forward policy would be as helpless as n man tied
hand and foot.
In view of these circumstances, Mr. Manning ha*
decided to be advised privately. He will pay the
bill himself, if tlie State does not do so. He could
have done this and have sent In a bill at the end
of the year, and lt would have been paid without
a protest, but ho has done the frank, open, honest
thing and has laid the situation before the people.
It is unfortunate that a simple matter of right,
of honorable policy, lias been given such high col
oring by politicians. This was not politics. Mr.
Manning does not seek to reward any close friends,
they are all satisfied with his course. He could get
legal advice free, If be were a cheap enough man to
Nor is he seeking to use the "big stick." It ls not
thc personality or the politics of the attorney gen
eral's office that ls questioned, for tho only appoint

It is not Richard I. Manning, but the State of

18 IT ?OT M?? OR STREET PAVING!
There has been much talk recently as to the need
for street paving In Anderson. Today thoBo who
have been talking can begin to show whether or not
their talk was "bot air" or real Interest Tbl J
morning a whirlwind campaign will be started, to
secure names, tb a petition for the purpose of calling
an election on tho question of Issuing bonds in thc
sum of $100,000 to be used in paying for street
paving whero one-half ot tho cost of said paving ts
to be paid by the abutting property owners. There
arc about 1,760 owners of real estate In the city,
and lt will require at least 900 names to these pe
titions to order the olection. Will t??8? be^forth
couiing at once, or shall thc matter be allowed to
drag UH people lose Interest in tho matter? Wc
shall see this afternoon when these toilet tors re
port at a meeting to bc held at 6 o'clock.
A glance down any street in Anderson will con
vince tho most skeptical thai something must fyS
done to becure street paving ut an early date. Sure
ly there is not n person so dead to civic pride and
real prosperity that he or she will be content to
remain In unpaved Anderson. If there b? such, The
Intelligencer cannot seo his or her view point, and
that there should be a sufficient number to; prevent
the calling ot this election, or the carrying of the
election when called, is so preposterous that we
really have given tho matter little consideration. Of
course there will be some persons who will dot
favor this progressive etep-there are always some
non-progressive citizens in every community. They
will assign some reason or another for their'oppo
sition, but we would remind them that it is im
possible to secure a condition ot affairs-that will
meet the requirements of every one. and there
must be a ''give and take" policy pursued: In this
matter as ta every other. We have a splendid com
mission to handle this paving matter, and one com
posed of gentlemen who will see to ll that the
money secured will be properly expended.- So-then
cannot be opposition on this score.
Let us show the people who have faith in Ander
son, and who have heralded to the world that the
people of Anderson do things, that their'faith and
confidence were not misplaced, but that lt ls real
ly true that we are a progressive people. Ander
son must be paved, so we must sign tho petitions.
Where do YOU stand? YOUR nsma will tell on
which side to count you and your influenqo. The
men who have these petitions are busy men and
cannot take time to argue with those who do not
wish to sign, so hava your mind made UP and be
ready to sign when the petition la presented, and
If not to say positively thst you cannot and will not

Dear Property Owner, yonr signing that petition
today does not constitute a vote Ia favor ot the
bond iBMie-lt* merely gives your consent for the
question to be submitted to a vote of the people;
and you ought to be willing to give the public a
chance to vote on the proposition.
