In tbi3 section who favors the
good roads bond issue, we have
failed thus far to? meet him
and we try to make it a point to
ask everyone we meet lt they are
in favor ot'the bonds. In conversa
tion with a prominent farmer of thc
Roberts section in Anderson lajt
Wednesday, we asked him if the peo
ple in his section were .In favor of
tho bonds, and be stated that to bis
knowledge, there wa.i only one. mani
in his section that was in favor of
them. Another from the Whitefield
section taid the same thing.
W. L. Casey claims that the Five
Fork section is opposed to them.
Are these communities not among
the most progressive ?In 'Anderson
county and does Pot some of the
county'? 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 of corporation.? 'dictate to
them what they must do. and if
they do not be dubbed as non
progressive, and of poor Judgment.
Are the tax payers of Anderson
county not already paying taxes to
.support several offices .that I.? 'not
worth a whoop to.them?. We can
name several, and one in particular
that ls 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 ls not a question
as to Whether or not good roads
would he a bsd .or a good thing fdr
the''County, but a question as to
whether or not the' county is ahle
to try a three quarter million dollar
experiment. Just a little comparison,
please, aa to who hears the burden
ot the taxes.* This ls true ?nd the
parties are alive today to bear wit
ness to the facts. A, is a man living
on rented land. He made his return
at $40.00, includjng . everything he
Owned. The assessors raised 'his* as
sessment to $30.00. lie pay a poll
and road tax. The tax was lt mills,
making his taxes $3.14 B, is a mah
who owns 180 acres of 'land, four
head of horses, two cows and three
dwellings with necessary outbuild
ings, beside house furnishings that
could not be replaced for $1,000. Hts
taxes, everything Included, was a
little over $28.00. Now, where did
the burden fail?
It has been said that good roads
would increase the value of land'
from $10 to $20 per acre. It that
be the case we think that a large'
part of the money for the roed work
should be raised by an . abutting
property tai, thereby . making lt
heaviest on those whp receive tho
greatest benefit. lt does seem
strange that with the bond issue
there la. created enough offices to
take a nie? sum from the total
amount. The taxpayers should haye
been given to understand in no un
certain way that the boudv were to
be used .'or road work and not go
to pay L'.ncy ?alarles to road en
gineers,., i extra commissioners,
a CM rds and other grafters, aa wa*

ha? never in thirty-six years seen

they will not. tie a? bad again Ut the
