iHTeoough la wasted
every year on. bad roads to more than
pay tho interest and sinking fund ot
the ' ind Issue necessary to build per
inan?nt tho main highways of the
county. While he expresses.no hope
that the baud issue will carry, he
wishes it might. Mr. .Wolfe presents
$om? strong argumenta In favor or
the bond issue, and mentions a mum'
-be/r of IndhsUVie^ which would be
built up by good roads. A strong point
ma/n by Representativo Wolfe ls that
. /hen tho county voted out the dis
pensary. there had to be a tax to
make up tho loss to the county from
the revenue derived from Ute sale ot
liquor, and the people seem to bo sat
failed with their decision in this mst
ter. for there ls no desire to vote back
the sale of liquor in Anderson Coun
ty. He argue? that to vote out Cje
mud tax would result similarly,
Mr. Fi?minfe comments on various
?Ides of thc road question. His idea
that the witter of building (good
ids be left to the townships,
tr lets ns tn the matter of M jool
lea for better school facilities. He
nka a special tax for one of these
trhrs. supplemented by the gov
mien!, State and national, will
ve the question. The unit. Mr.
?ming, ls too small, und thc amount
aouoy raised will be too little to
t & good class of road contrac
to make it interesting to those
g pood ronds, it lakes money
lo build good roads, and If Ute gov
ernment pays in any money for good
roads, they must of necessity get it
somewhere before tin y ran pay it to
the districts mentioned b> Mr. Flem
ing. So the tax will be all the heavier
because of the appropriations.
This writer also belittles the '?:>0
miles of good roads, which might be
built hy the proceeds of the bond is
sue. If he will stop lo Hunk, this will
cross tho county from Hue to line
about six or seven limes, and will
place, thus, a good road in reach of,
or near to every citizen of the county.
Then lt will decrease the number of
miles the supervisor will have to keep
up, and Rive him a fund he can use
for bundine; more permanent roads.
So the work once started Will never
stop lill all the roads ia the county
have boen made; permanent.
Of course this amount of mom y
Will not pave every road In the coun
ty. Once started, however, and the
good roads fever will spread till every
section of the county will demand
perraatlint roads, and they will get
them too. They should have them,
and If ever a start must he made.
Over ono hundred years have passed
since this county was first settled,
and If there Is a mlle of real perma
nent road bed in thc county, we do
not know of it. True there are many
miles of good roads most of thc time
In the county, for tho soil here ls a
natural good roads soil.
Of course it IR In the province of
Mr. Fleming and those who think as
he docB to vote down, the bond Issue,
ar.d he says they will do lt. Possibly
so, l ut they will loue. annually ln_a
mm?^ttt'- a much greater sura thafi
they would Have to pay as a direct
tax for the good roads under a bond
issue. And one hundred years from
n/jw Anderson County will have just
hs many miles of permanent roads ns
she has today.
Debt Ia a bad thing. But has Mr.
Flemtnc ever noticed that a town
hardly ever begins to grow and thrive
till it ls bonded for some ot the im
provements-schools, streets, lights,
v/Mer? Look at the most progre
sivo cities and towns in the country
and are they not bonded to tho limit?
Would Anderson have the schools she
has today. If it were not tor the
?utool bonds? Would Columbia have
tho nines and mites of street paving
she has, if lt were not for the bonds
roted by her citizens? Tho same ls
true as to Greenville. A debt which
U contracted for such an Improve
ment, lr. hot really a debt-it ls an In
vestment which wll| pay handsomely
and In direct returns. Think on these
things. Mr. Fleming.

WOMAN'S BIGHT TO VOTE.
Mrs. Desl?a Breckenridge.. ot Lex- i
lng ton, Ky., one of the leaders of tho '
Fight in this country for woman's sut- j
Trage, has delivered two speeches In ,
this State in favor of allowing wo
men the privilege of voting. Mrs.
Breckenridge ts a great granddaugh- ?
ter of Henry Clay, and possesBos in ,
b large degree the wonderfully logical I
mind of her talented and famous an- i
cestor. She baa a wast fond of Infor
motton on the subject, and it la n ,
strong opponent whom she .cannot i

ridge says. that women everywhere '
wltl soon have the right to vote the
same as the men now have, and cites
figures to show the remarkable i
growth of the movement hi tbls conn- 1
try. The Intelligencer agrees with j
Mrs.-Breckenridge, and does not fear
thc day for such a happy consumma- :

THIS AFFECTS COLUMBIA
The people of Anderson are very
happy over the opening lo the public
.if the beautiful new union passenger
station built by the Blue Ridge rail
way. Thia ls Inc of the uohhlcst as
weil as ni'.st convenient pnjseugor
sialions in tlifs country. The rail
road practical Iv tunneled through the
heart ol the city. The station is built
on the principal business street with
platforms below the street level and
walting rooms above the tracks.
The history of thu success of thc
Blue Ridge railway is almost a
romance. At one time it was prac
tically abandoned hy thc Southern
railway. It was bought for a SOUK.
with Fairfax Harrison as one of thc
purchasers. He ls now head of the
great Southern railway system.
At that time the future of the Blue
Ridge wad very dark. Hut thc com
pany was fortunate to get the services
of u big man for manager. Capt. Jno.
R. Anderson is the man who took
charge of the road and brought il
from bankruptcy to respectability,
from a trail of rotten ties and rusty
tint nut won hy irons, to a very good
roadbed, now hoing ballasted. Al
one time the Blue Ridge was the best
paying pleco of mileage in thc South,
t'apt. Andereon acted as freight con
ductor and us superintendent of the
road at one and Che same time, and to
h. careful management and good
judgment Is due the fact that the Blue
Ridgo recently built a Slun.OOu sta

Capt. Jno. Rf. Anderson Is thc man
who has saved the Blue Ridge road.

BEGIN WORKING FOR
A COUNTY FAIR
If you are going to have a county
fatr next fall-and your county cer

Lime to begin planning for it. Talk
it over with your local editor, your
business and professional men, - and j
four teachers, and get your county
Farmers' Union and your town Cham*
bera of commerce interested.
It will not be hard to get up the
prises. You will need aotne cash pre
miums and some prizes in the form of
roods? cv., donated by merchants
ind others for the older people; then
M>me pure-bred, pig., or improved ma*

tho honor of having eaten all com
petitors and carried off a blue or red
ribbon or an engraved certificate in
proof of victory will be attraction
enough for other p?lzej. It ia the
Krinning und not tho thing won which
most Htimulates pride und effort. Aa
tiie Asheboro Courier says in urging
a fair for its county:
"No costly buildings are necessary;
plenty of room can be found with lit
tle expense. It will take some money,
to be sure, to purchase tue prizes,
but that eau he had. Fairs bring peo
ple togefner; old friends greet eacli

made. A fair encourages the exhibir
