THE OLD SULLIVAN
TOWNSHIP R. R. BONDS
"Citizen" Thinks Tu? County Should
Share in This Burden of Taxes.
The Figures Given.
Editor Tiie Advertiser:
Those who read Hie urtlcle of Mr,
T. P. Cothran in reference to the rail
road bonds of Oak Lawn and Danklin
townships, in ><mr issui' nt the Slit,
could hardly have tailed to ha remind
ed that Sullivan township occupies n
position precisely similar, in every re
spect, in this old bond obligation, to
thai of Oak Lawn and Danklin; ex
cept, that these two are In (Ireenvllle
and Sullivan is in I.aureus,
Mr. Cot bran's statement and reason
ing is clear and conclusive. In stat
ing the ease of Sullivan, we cannot
avoid adopting the line of his argu
ment or statement, and may appropri
ate some in his language.
The Sullivan bond issue and the
legislation and litigation connected'
With It are familiar to our people.
Away hack in the eighties Sullivan
issued bonds to a large amount in aid
or the Atlantic, tlreenvllle and West
ern railroad. "Hy a great blunder
these bonds were not made condition
al upon the operation of I lie road.
I,ui were issued and delivered before
the work was done". The road was
never built. What followed Is fa
Millar to all. as before intimated
Upon the deliverance of the failed
state*-, Supreme court, thai Ihe bonds
must l,i' paid, and a compromise hav
ing been effected with Ihe holders,
new bonds were Issued l>\ Sullivan
to Hit- amount id' $)!i,Mio, payable al
Iii?- expiration of :i?i years, with in
terect at tin* rate of per cenl
ID pay Interest on these bonds, and
at Hie same time provide a sinking
fund for their altiamte liquidation, an
annual tax of 4 mills Is lived upon
the property of Sullivan township.
The valuation of the property ol the
township Is $443,480. The special
levy amounts this year- to j I i 7"
"if the road had been buill Ihe
county as a whole would nave re
ceived the benefit of Ihe taxes collect
ed from the road", and of course Ihe
townships other than Sullivan Would
have received their pro rata of these
taxes, "Other bonds in aid of tail
road;; have been issued in the county".
There were bonds to the amount ol
$|49,f>0(J issued in the enrlj eighth j
in aid of the fori Royal .'. Western
Carolina railroad, traverslne the coun
ly from ttie Saluda lo the ells ol Lau
rens and from I.aureus to Spartan
burg ami from Lau rens lo (ireenvllle.
These bonds originally bore , per
cenl interest and required .i in.l . . in
pay the annual Inlcrcr.t; $la,000 of
l.heui have been paid, leaving oul
standing $l34,aOO. Ol these $100.000
have been refunded al -P.- per cenl
interest, There is now on hand $''.?>,
000 lo pay on the flrsl Instalment I ha I
will fall dim.
"These being county and not town
! hip bonds, the annual Interest is paid
hy all townships", and although liel
Iher of these railroads, touch Sullivan
ulie Im forced to contribute her pro
rata to poj the illteresl on lliese
"Rven if Hie railroad had been buill
and the people" ii nin using Mr
Cothran's language largelyl of Hulli
van had gotten the benefit <,r a rail
road through their section, Sullivan
would not be upon an equal fooling
with the other townships, tor Sullivan
contributes to poj ihe Interest on
bonds for railroads which do mil
touch her, While Other townships
would not have been helping Sullivan
to pay Ihe interest upon Ihn hoods of
tier railroad, while getting a pro rata
benefit of the taxes upon the railroad
Sullivan "hy ihe fale of events" gol
no railroad, yel pays llileresl on her
bonds and helps the other townships
lo carry their burdens.
Now, we have believed lor all these
years that its an act of simple justice
(he county as a whole should assume
ibis Sullivan township debt, I'or
vears Sullivan has, been paying her
annual contingent for other railroads
in Ihe county I hot are a considerable
distance from her territory ami ii Is
but fair IhtiI the county should step
in and assume (his tlebl
The amount required v early lo meet
this obligation Interest ami sinking
fund amounts to about $(?oo, which
on a total County valuation of $fi,xM
Bf?1 would cull I'm a small additional
levy of one-fourth ol .me mill
or 26 cts. on the $1000.

Tin- Leesvllle Farmers' club used to
appoint committees to go among the
members and look over tin- crops after
they had been "lnid-by". Later u

was enjoyed, and the reports of the
special committee submitted. All the
women und children of the neighbor

stock in good condition. In fnel Mr.
Sbockley, so tile committee round, bud
nn excellent crop, with the exception
of one Held of corn. They could not
understand why ii was that this Held
of corn whs so poor. Alter the re
port had been heard Mr, Sbockley
asked permission lo make an explana
tion in regard lo the seeming failure
or this part ot hi crop. He said that
hi-' neighbor, I'Vrrcl Miluui, had been
making corn with seven furrows
which in'. Milam, said was enough.
So he decided lo try Ihe plan. I!<?
lived his laud, planted his corn as
usual and go! a good stand. Then
he proceeded to cultivate ii after the
Miltiin method. lie gol six furrows
