REPORT OF
'SUPERVISOR
Detailed Report of Mr. Craig
Shows Pickens County to
be in Fair Condition
The following report shows
the amount (as accurate as can
well be obtained) of all money
paid out by the county board
for the fiscal year ending Janu
ary 1, 1912.
The auditor's abstract shows
that he will collect for the year
1911 $38,650.81 to be used by the
county board, $14,370.95 lof
which has been checked out, A
balance of $24,279.86 remains,
to be applied to the debts of the
county. It appears, therefore,
that the amount owed will ex
ceed the amount to be collected
by about $4,440.73. There will
be some fines and licenses that
may be credited to the above
debt.
The county also owes the
State sinking fund about $3,000,
the payment of which is provid
ed for by a special levy.
This report includes the cost
of seven mules, crushing plant,
steel stockade for convicts, and
about $3,000 which was over
looked in last year's report.

ROME PRACTICES
UN-AMERICANISM
Interesting, Instructive Article
Reproduced from Pen
J. IF. Love
IN THE DECEMBER issue of
The Home Field we cited some
of the un-American principals
proclaimed b'y the pope and his
accredited spokesmen. We let
Roihe state these principles in
her own terms. The jgngaage
was explicit, admitting of but
one interpretation. It showed
that theoretically, at least, Rome
is indeed as she boasts, cenper
eadem (always the same). This
article will show that she is, as
far as she dare, actually practic
ing these principles in Ameri
ca.
Rome does not content herself
with theories; she is the most
perfectly and shrewdly organiz
ed human institution on earth,
and the most sleepless propagan
dist the world ever saw. She
ceaselessly exp9unding her creed
by her acts. What she is at
tempting in America as else
where when not restrained, is
proof of sincerity in what she
says.
She says she does not believe
in an independent State, in
equality, in liberty and the right
of private judgement and free
speech, and she shows her faith
by her works. From Cordinal
Gibbons down to the most ser
vele little priest, the Roman
Catholic clergy is diligently ex
ecuting policies consonant with
.her published polity, secretly
when prudent, but more and
more openly. The work of the
17,000 priests of America is ex
pository and defensive of the
creed and the decrees of the
Vatican. Rome is professedly
and practicaly un-American,
Take as the first emaniple of

and her stealthy appropriation
of public taxes for the support
of her parochial schools, main
tained in opposition to the na

system of America is our patri
otic boast as the greatest nation
alizing institution controlled by
the State. In her opposition to
this system she sets herself up
against the authority of the
State, and in insidiously draw
ing on the national treasury for
the support of her schools affects
a union of Church and State.
The American principle of
liberty and personal rights for

ious denomination shall partici

fying this, Rome has secured
vast oossessions in public and
Indian lands, and keeps a hand
stretched out toward our nation
al treasury, which is seldom
withdrawn empty. A shrewd
priest is now located at Wash
ington for diplomatic service,
and while we have not yet come
to the point of officially recog
nizing him, he is on intimate
terms with many of the people's
representatives and Federal em
ployees, and is shown such con
sideration in the departments
at Washington as is scarcely
shown to any other unofficial
citizen of America. He is one
o1 the most familliar figures at
the National Capital, and has
such familiarity with matters
transacted there both in the
legilative halls and departments
of State as no other eccelesias
tic in America p.>ssesses or s -eks
to possess.
Recently. when New Mexico
was seeking statehood but be
fore the citizens of the territory
could adopt a constitution,
Rome found a tool among the
representatives at Washington

which proposed to give to Rome
300.000 acres of land in New
Mexico to bc used by her lieu
tenants in the support of her
sectarian schools, A mong other

and the appointment of eight

e The Indian Catholic of Sep
h tember 22, 1911, cites a recent
a decision handed down by a
[c Roman Catholic judge in St.

n Christian Association of that

! These are just a few examples
- of how Roman Catholics are in
vading the precints of govern1

y upon our liberties. They are

Le Death of Ex-Sheriff Gireath
;o Ex-Sheriff Perry D. Gilreath
n died at his home in Greenville
o Sunday, 28th ult. in the 76th
, year of his age. He was one of
a the prominent citizens of that
is county and was widely known
ie and universally respected. He
1. was elected sheriff in 1876 and
i held that office continuously for
>. 24 years. He retired in 1900 and
:o was succeeded by his son, Mr.
J. D. Fllreath, who held the of
B- fice for eight years. The Green
i ville News of last Monday pays
d a very high tribute to him in
t, followit~g worda:
n In the death of Mr. Gilreath
B Greeville has lost aianan whose
>f place will Indeed be hard to fill.
3 During his long period as a pub
- lic servant his labors were inesti
t mable in the suppression of law
d lessness and the general uplift
1 of the county. Throughout this
t and other states he was recog
L nized as an officer of unquestion
- ed ability and a gentleman of
' the highest type.
A, Mr. Gllreath was a* man of
"affable disposition whose never
a failing cheerfulness was (an in
n spiration to all who came in con
- tact with him. Free from
-ostentation he lived from day to
day the exemplary life of a
Christian gentleman, always
hanpy himself because of his ef
d forts to make others happy. Of
i Mr. Gilreath it can be truthfully
s said that he was a man who
n feared God and kept His comn
Bt mandmente.
