NEW HIGHWAY BOARD,
eCHARLES 0. HEARON, EDITOR,
AND J.. M. JOHNSON, CIVIL
DISPATCHES FROM COLUMBIA
Doings and Happenings That Mark the
Progress of South Carolina People,
Gathered Around the State Capital.
Governor Manning has appointed
-Charles 0. Hearon, editor of The
'Herald, at Spartanburg, and J. Mon
roe Johnson, a civil engineer of Mar
Ion, as members of the State High
way Commission provided for in the
act passed by the recent session of
the General Assembly. The other
three members of the commission
named in the act are the heads of the
departments of engineering of the
Citidel, the University of South Car
.olita and Clemson College.
Mr. Johnson is one of the more
widely known civil engineers of the
state, having been connected with rec
lamation and drainage work in the
Pee Dee section of the state for the
past few years. He Is a thoroughly
practical road engineer and had tak
-en decided interest in the problam
of highway improvement in South
Carolina. He was the organizer of
the Johnson Engineers of the South
Carolina National Guard which made
such a reputation on the border.
Mr. Hearon is one of the leading
journalists of the state, for a number
of years guiding the editorial des
tinies of The Spartanburg Herald.
He has been an unrelenting battler for
improved highways in the piedmont
section of the state, particularly in
his county. It was mainly through
his influence, asserted both in the col
umns of his paper and through person
.al work, that the magnificent trans
mountain highway from Spartanburg
to Hendersonville was constructed a
few years ago. He was one of the
pioneers in working for the million dol
lar bond issue for improved highways
for Spartanburg county passed at the
recent session of the General Assem
Increase Not Adequate.
W. W. Moore; adjutant general, has
i-eturned to his office after a week"
illness. Gen. Moore calculates that the
Second regiment should reach Colum
bia on the morning of March 14, if they
leave March 10, as now scheduled. He
thinks the entertainment to be given
by Columbia should take place March
Gen. Moore received notification
from the comptroller general's office
of the recent provisions by the general
assembly for military equipment and
maintenance. He is pleased with the
increase of the item for maintenanoe
by $15.000. It was not enough, by far,
he commented, but the increase would
help in a measure. The chief denl
(ciency is failure to provide for camp
improvement ar'd development. This
is particularly diesirable in that the
federal government entrusts the state
with half a million dollars wvorth of
equlpmen t, for which thle state is r'e
spOnisible and for which adequate pro
tection facilities have not been pro
Governor Approves Fisheries Bill.
Gov. Manning anuproved the act of
the last legislature to regulate the
catching andi shipping of shell tish
anid the creation ofT a state board of
fisheries. Th'ie bill was fathiered in
the senate b~y Senator G. K. Laney and
Senator E. C. EIpps.
The fisheries board will be comn
posed of three members, who are to
servo for three years. One of the
members will b~e appiointedl as chair
man of the board at a salary of $1,800
while the other t wo immbers wvill re
'elve $4 a day and expenses, the work
in one year not to exceed 30 days.
A tax is placed by the act on the
fishing industry to pay the expenses of
the board of fisheries.
For the enforcement of the varied
provisions of the law, four inspectors
are to be appoitnted by the board. One
of the inspectors will receive $75 a
mon-th and the other three $00 a
Governor Appoints Delegates.
Gov. Manning h' apinited sit
delegates to the 13th national conveni
tion on child labor, to be held in Balti
more, March 23.25. The representa
tives from this state are: D. D. Wal
lace, Spartanburg; Miss Louisa Pop

Winnsboro; Mrs. A. C. Ligon, Orangee
burg; the Rt. Rev. W. A. Guerry,
Charleston; and the R1ev. Z. T. Cody,
Strengthen Child Labor Law.
The state child labor law was
amended by the recent leglslatuire to
eon form to the general provisions of*
the federal staute, which excludes
i rom interstate commerce goods man
tufactured by children under 18 years
of age, Children between the ages of

Ceremonies Meet Weevil Problems.
The South Carolina Creamery Asso
ciation was organized at a meeting of
the presidents, managers and secre
taries of the creaneries at Columbia.
The meeting was called for that pur
pose by W. W. Long, state farm dem
onstration agent for Clemson college.
James M. McIntosh, president of the
Darlington creamery, was elected pres
ident of the new association and W.
W. Fitzpartick of Clemson College
was elected secretary.
The meeting was called to order by
Mr. Long, but immediately upon the
election of Mr. McIntosh to the presi
dency of the association, he assumed
charge of the meeting. Mr. Long. in
his opening remarks, dwelt upon the
high price of cattle feed the last year,
and of the value the creameries are
and will be as an outlet for the dairy
products, especially when the state is
having trouble with the boll weevil.
Notwithstanding the high cost of feed
for cattle, however, Mr. Long said he
considered that the creameries of the
state had been successful since they
had been self-sustaining. He expects
the development of the creameries to
be very rapid. He said the cream
eries would form a good outlet for the
surplus crop of hay and grain which
the boll weevil situation is expected
Two new creameries will probably
be formed during the year at points
now under consideration. Among
others present at the meeting were:
.J. C. W. Bischoff of Charleston, who
is the distributor of the Palmetto
state brand of butter, which is pro
duced by all the creameries and which
has been copyrighted by the $tate of
South Carolina; A. E. Atkinson, pres
ident of the Orangeburg creamery;
Gabriel Cannon, secretary-treasurer of
the Spartanburg creamery, and J. M.
Burgess, secretary-treasurer of the
Clemson College creamery.
Whole State Busy for Roads.
The good roads fever has seized
South Carolina by the throat to such
an extent that counties are now vieing
with each other to raise themselves
out of the mud. This epidemic of good
roads is so contagious that at the re
cent session of the general assembly
ten counties passed good roads bond
issues aggregating $4,398,068.48. Two
years ago Greenville county blazed
the way with a good roads bond issue
of $950,00 and this pioneering of the
"Mountain county" is being followed
by one-third of her sister counties of
the Palmetto state.
Spartanburg lived up to her repu.
tation as the "County of Success" with
a road bond issue of $1,000,000. This
issue was authorized by act of the leg
Islature and is now in force and effect.
Pickens county also put on direct a
bond issue of $250.000 for good roads.
mcCormick. the "baby" county. pro
vided direct a bond issue of $175,000
for good roads building. These three
counties did not refer the bond issues
to the people, following in this respect
the lead of Greenville county. Thus
bond issues totalling $1,425,000 for
good roads building are authorized by
the act of the legislature for the three
counties of Spartanburg, McCormick
and Pickens, and to this add the
$950,000 of Greenville county makes
$2,375,000 put on good roads in four
counties by means of bond issues and
none of which was referred to a vote
of the people..
H-ighwvay commissioners are provid
ed in the three counties where bond
Issues are now certaIn by act of the
legislature, In Spartanburg county the
highwvay commission is composed of
ive citizens who are appointed by the
governor on reconmnendatiQn of the
majority of the dlelegat-ion. In Pickens
the high way c'omminission Is composed0(
of three citizens of that county ap
pointed by the governor on recommen
dlation of a majority of the dlelegation.
In McCormIck county the highway
commission consists of J. J1. D~orn,
chairmuan; WV. D. Morrah, T. A. D)ow
tint. Albert. Gilbert, and J. Hi. Lyson, the
latter ex-officlo because of his being
the county supervisor. The governor

In seven other counties the question
of issuing bonds for good roads deC

delegat ions htaving provided for Issues

Farmers Will Plant Peanuts.
Lexington.-The latest venture of
the Lexington farmer is the peanut,
a peanut club having been organized

convicted men at once made argu.

refused the motion and imposed the
death sentence two hours later.

more beneficent than light as it re
