Madden, May 14.?We have been
reading political platforms and reso
lutions since we can remember, but
the one put forth in The Herald last
week Is so exceedingly strong and
sound that we reproduce It here for
the benefit of those who perchance did
not see it, or elBe gave It only a curso
ry reading. Here !s is "Resolved, That
we will support no man for any of
fice, state or county, or national, who
does not possess the ability, charac
ter and fitness to discharge the duties
of the office and who will not be true
to his convictions of right and free
from the domination of any man or
set of men, but will stand as the rep
resentative of all the people."
How Is that for a good sound plank?
Ask your candidates for the legisla
ture if they can stand on that, not
are you a Bleaselte, or for Jones!
Men is the need of the hour! "What
constitutes a state? Not high embat
tlements, etc., but men, but men, high
minded men who know the right and
knowing dare maintain"! Then you
will have statesmen, not two by four

Editor The Advertiser:
Please allow me space In next Issue
of your valuable paper to make some
Inquiry, as to our supervisor, and de
scribe conditions of this upper sec
tion of Laurens county. When did
our supervisor die, and where will he
be buried? Some of the people In this
community might want to go to his
funeral. We have been trying, for the
last 12 or 18 months to get him up
here to make some changes on one of
the worst located roads, and one that
carries more heavy traffic, than any
other road In this whole upper section
of the county. We have a bridge down
that's needed badly, on this road, and
lumber has been on grounds for a
new one, two months or longer; this
lumber Is damaging badly and some
of It is being thrown across the stream
for people who might be walking, to
cross on, and during the freshet Bome
weeks ago a lot of this lumber floated
quite a distance from the bridge site.
It seems to us that a progressive man
is needed badly in this office, if ever
a county office needed one. If we
mistake not. this county is entitled to
two road commissioners. Will some
one be so kind as to Inform this sec
tion of the county whether these of
fices are filled or not? Frequently we
hear the supervisor's office has one
of the best qualified men the county
affords. We do not question his abil
ity or competency, but desire some of
the benefits of better highways while
this generation lives. Traveling
around over this section of the county,
we hear a great many people express
ing a desire for an opportun ty to show
their appreciation for what's being
done on our roads and bridges. The
above Is a true picture of the situa
tion as we see it, but hope to be able
to look on an entirely different one
in the near future.
