Fd I tor Daily Mall: I am moved to
rei Ite briefly why the delegation gave
the peuple of Hie county an oppor
tunity to express themselves on the
bond IS3Ue and why the hill was fram
ed Just as lt was.
Greenville's delegation had provid
ed for an iBStlo ??f one million dollars
in bond3 [or permanent mad Improve
ment. I'nhill, and Riehland, immediate
ly made provisions for the issuing ot
bonds for the Rame purpose. Scarcely
hud the news Rotten out before we
were advised that a delegation would
visit us as tho repr?sentatives of the
county, and ask Bindiar action on the
inirt of Anderson. From the home pu
llers wo snw that the matter was ho
ing given considerable publicity and
we rather expected a special truiu
crowded with enthusiastic boosters
for g?od roads.
The ''special'.' didn't come but the
regular train over the C. and ?J. did,
nlthough a little late.
The next morning just prior to a
very busy day's session which tho
members of the legislative delegation
were? anxious to attend, we met In one
of tlie committee rooms with the good
Wo were told that it waa the deidre
of tho people in Anderson county that
they bc not outstripped by Greenville
county people of the towns were
anxious that they he given thc oppor
tunity of voting on a bond issue, lt
was aureed that the election should bt
held without expense to the county
Could the delegation Btop to question
the sincerity of theHe men or refuse
their request on the circumstance!
Th ona feaure that bothered us was
how lt would he possible to get thr
measure through with but six legisla
tive days within which to do lt.
We decided to take the I nion bil
and alter it simply as to names and in
troduce it immediately and in tlu
mcantlm,. instructed the committee tc
return to Anderson, 'nave their attor
ney draft the proposed hill as thej
wanted lt and as accorded with th?
peoples' wishes, as they had heart
them expressed, and stud it to us ot
the morrow's mail. This was done ant
the amendment was substituted la tlu
house on the second or third nehdlug
Notwithstanding every member of th?
house waa using every possible meant
of pushing through measures in whlct
they were respectively interested, thi
members of the Anderson delegatlot
had tho bond Issue _ bill to pass iti
three readings without the lops of c
single day and it was duly sent to th?
senate where 8enator .Sherard begat

Mr. West agreed- with mo and to

bonds necessary to build permanent
roads at least over the arterial high
ways of the county. The European
war cannot last indefinitely and cer
tainly not longer than another year.
The bpnda, if Issued, could not be
disposed of Immediately and interest
would not he a liability on the tax
payers until a year after they were
sold, hence there Is really no reason
for opposing the issue on this ground.
And'ufter the mads were built, the
benefits would more than offset the
additional tax necessary to take care
of the bonded indebtedness.
The county voted out the dispensary
and in so doing, raised thc taxes to
make, up for the deficit In revenue.
Evidently the jjeople have felt that the
benefits derived from the ahBence of
tho liquor traille fully repaid them for
the additional cost in taxation. Why
not vote out the mud if upon the
j same principle, the results show a
gain in the end?

MR. FLEMING WRITES.
The Anderdon Intelligencer:
Well Mt. Editor: I notice In your
? ! editorial lntitled. "A Sum In Interest."
[?you Btato that*the interest on the
, ! bonds is simply a rental for the use of
? the ronds. You also state that the
. I sinking fund would pay the debt In
I ; the time of the .bonds. New Mr. Edl
t ! tor why did you not state and make
.. it plain where the sinking fund each
. I year was to be raised. Now isn't lt afact
(* that our tuxea will bc raised, a suffl
'. i clent amount to ralea this sinking
II fund plus the interest on bonds which
' would be a very heavy rent indeed,
f\>r some of us who live up here in
Bushy Creek township. For unless
u miracle should happen our roads
would, never get very much done to
them for it's an old saying that MH
f j tory repents Itself. Now your bonds
might be nil right if each taxpayer
received his just proportion, but it
can't be done. You say-Voters should
not allow themselves to forget- the In
finitesimal sum they will pay each
year for the privilege of having thlB
250 miles of permanent roada. Then
they will have the use of them while
they are being paid for and thia ls not
true under any other system.
Now Mr. Editor what is 250 miles
of permanent roadB in Anderson
County. Why It'c no more than a fly
on and elephant. What's to become
of the other roads. It the permanent
roads should happen to be built In
Brushy Creek (no danger v>f that)
how would that benefit you In the
city of Anderson or vice versa. Some
body certainly will pay for something
thoy will never renp any good from.
I don't believe In ta. ~*tg all thc peo
ple for the benefit of a special few.

people have to depend on credit to

uro standing on the brink of disas

this was good advice and I believe
vou will put it into practice in your
awn personal affairs. Now I think
what's good for one man in the way
af debt will apply to a county or State
for they are a collection of men. If
one man gets in debt he is only in
volving lila own private property, but
when lie goes to the polls and votes
a bond on his property, be ls not only
Involving bis own but his whole
township, county or State, as the case
may be. I think, Mr. Editor, you will
repent and come over on the right
Bide. I believe you are under convic
Now as to the self appointed salary
drawing crowd, I haven't got a single
thing to say against them, for I know
nothing of my own personal knowl
edge against them. In fact ono of
them is a neighbor of mine "nd I
think one of the best citizens of our
county. But I can't see any need of
them, even it" we were to vote the
bom?), it would take a big raise in our
taxes to pay the salaries and the in
terest on bonds, to say nothing of thc
amount of the sinking fund. You see,
wo would have to spend at least $2.00
to get $1.00 to put on the roads. It
seems that the present board elected
by the people wc?ld have been the
proper parties to have charge ot the
bonds, and then if they started to
grafting we would have a chance to
elect a new board lu two yeuvs. but
ns it is we have no Chance to remove
a single one, no matter how he should
succeed on hts job.
Now, Mr. EV.itor, t notice you want
every party who 'writes against the
bonds to suggest a plan tor good roads.
I think we should have something
like our school system.- that is let
every township, provided it should
wart to improve it's roads to a great
er extent than our present system
will provide, vote a special tax of any
amount they might want, said amount
to be kopt in the treasurer's office
and to be snpnt In the township that
pays lt in. tinder that system every
body would , get his Just dues and no
more. Let the State-and the United
State appropriate tfu amount to be
used in tbe improvement of toads,
said appropriation to be divided with
the different townships r '.-cording to
the amount said townships should
raise. Then it ene township wanted
to vote S or .4 mills, or even more, let
them do so cad get State sud national
aid accordingly. Then if after they
have vied it out, lt should prov? to be
a'failure they could call an election
and vote it off. a thing you cannot do
in the bonti Issue. Once they are on
they sure wit? stay for 40 or 50 years
as the case may be.
Now, Mr. Editor, leta vote those
bonds down , and watch Greenville
County as they have them and after a
few years If we see or Uve to travel
their roads we will thank our Maker,
that Anderson County's delegation io
'.he year 1915 did not make near ?ts

Something lias been said about the
managers not getting any pay. It i
sure seems strange that no provision
was made for them, but there will I
sure be an election, at my box all right
and a heavy ballot against the bonds j
and none for them. I haven't talked !
to a. single mah who is in favor of :
bonds, but they all are In favor of good
roads and have been all thc time. ? I

thing out of nothing. You know, for
