In there is n single voter
in tlii.; section who favors the
good roads bond issi*?, we have
failed thus far to -neet him
and we try to make it a point to
ask everyone we meet 1? they are
in favor of the bonds, i In conversa
tion with a prominent farmer ot the
Roberts section in Anderson last
Wednesday, we asked him if the peo
ple In his section were in favor of
the bonds, and he stated that to bis
knowledge, there was only one man
in'his section that was in favor ol
them. Another from the Whitefield
section said the same thing.
W. L. Casey claims that the Five
Fork section is opposed to them.
Arc these communities not among
too mast progressive in Anderson
county and does not some of the
county's best citizens live in these
sections. Have they not brains
enough to know what is best for
them? Do they have' to sit idly by
and let a few who are under the
control ot corporations dictate to
them what they must do, and if
they do not be dubbed as non
progressive, and pf poor judgment.
Are the tax payers of Anderson
county not already paying taxes to
support several offices (hat ii not
worth a whoop to them? We * can
name several, and one' in particular
that is of no more benefit to the
peoplp of the county than' the chief
of some African jungle tribe. Like
the turtle, the taxpayer has already,
got too many leeches sucking their
.living from them. It is not a question
us to whether dr not gqod roads
would be a bad or a good thing for
the county, hut a question as to
whether or not the county ls abie
to try. a three quarter million dollar
experiment. Just a little comparison,
please, as to who bears the burden
of thc taxe.-?. This is true nnd thc
barties are alive today to bear wlt
uess to the facts. A, is a man living
on rented land. He made his return
at 4*0.00. including everything he
owned. The assessors raised bia as
sessment to $60.Ou. He pay a poll
and road tax. The tax ?as 19 mills,
making his taxes $3.14 B. ls a man
who owns 180 acres ot land, four
head of horses, two cows and three
dwellings with necessary outbuild
ings, beside, houjc furnishings that
could not be replaced for $1,000. His
taxes, everything ..?eluded, was .a
little over 128.00/ Now where . .d
the burden fall?
It has been said- that good mads
would Increase the value ot f?Mf
from $10 to $20 per o?Jre., If ??at
be thc case we think that aa large
part or the rooney for tho road work
should be raised by an abutting
property fay, thereby * making lt
heaviest , on those who receive the
greatest benefit. It does seem
strange ?hat with , the bond issue
there ls created ' enough offices to
take a n'^e sum from the total
amount. The taxpayers should have
been given to .understand la no un
certain way that thA honda were to
be used, for fcoad wj>rk and not go
to p?y taney salaries to road en
