THE TORRENS LAND SYSTEM
WHICH JUDGE JONES FAVORS
Judge Ira B. Jones ha? endorsed the
Torrens system of land registration.
For two yenrs a bill of this kind has
been before the legislature and did
not get through. We hope that, when
Judge Jones gets comfortably seat
ed in the governor's ofllce, he will
take this matter up with the legisla
ture and push It through.
The Torrens i.ystem proposes once
and for all to look up a title?to
settle the questions of the past and
to assure the present owner that his
title is good. It will save lawyer's fees
and will guarantee the title. No law
yer will do that now.
As matters now stand, every time
a piece of land is sold or mortgaged
a lawyer has to go over the same
ground that was gone over the last
time the land was Bold or mortgaged.
And every lawyer so doing gets his
A writer In the Progressive Farm
er of Raleigh, N. C, says: "I was
looking up a title last week. I traced
the title back to 1830. I had to read
some 20 deeds, and examine about
40 mortgages; investigate judgments
against six Individuals; look Into the
settlement of two estates and see
that the taxes had been paid for 20
years. A year ago this same land
was mortgaged. Some attorney did
then just what I did last week. Year
before that, this land was purchased
by another man. Again a lawyer had
to go over the same ground. Every
time it was mortgaged some lawyer
went over the same ground. I sup
pose Investigations of the title to this
lot had- cost all told about $200 and
20 days' time. The tax valuation of
the lot was less than $1,000. In oth
I er words, probably one-fifth of the
tax value of the land had been spent
I in title Investigations.
"What the Torrens system pro
I poses is to close up the past; to go
over the title once for all, and to
I put an end to the expense and waste
I of time required by this eternal pro
cession of lawyers going over the
same beaten path, each taking a fee
I for his work. One lawyer will not
and should not take another's state
ment of title; but any lawyer will
take the state's or county's judicial
assurance of title.
"So the sum of the proposition is
that the state or county shall employ
a lawyer to look up titles, and so far
as possible clear, them of question
(by judicial process, of course) and
have the land owners pay the state
once and forever for "the service."?
Anderson Dally Mall.
ON WHICH SIDE ARE YOU?
This is the momentous question of
today; and which appeals to the seri
ous consideration of every citizen of
Laurens County. Every good man
ought to look out for the future wel
fare of self and family. If he were
moving into a now community, would
he not first look into the religious and
educational advantages of that sec
tion? If It had none would he risk
the rearing of his family in sucli a
section? No! Since the days of Mos
es, who has ever stood between the
wrath of the Lord and the sins of his
people? In all sacred and profane
history, who has been the advocate of
all reformation In church and State?
The Preachers! Do you candidly think
they would stand for a cause that
was hurtful to their church and coun
try? In this present campaign who
should the members of churches vote
for? Our ministers most to a man
arc for Judge Jones. Do you think
they are on the wrong sido? If not,
then follow them! If you get Into se
rious trouble and affliction, who Is tho
first man that you want to see? Why
It Is your preacher. Then If you put
Buch implicit faith in him, when the
hand of the Lord is heavy on you, why
not take his advice in political mat
ters? If it was not for the civilising
influence of the church and school
house Laurens coun'.y would not bo
worth living in.
On the other hand, what is it, that
is filling our Jails with violations of
the laws, our penitentiary with con
victs, und our counti-y with shame and
misery? The sale of whiskey! Should
not every man fight this monster to
the last ditch? How can he vote for
a candidate that advocates the sale
of spiritous liquors? Up then and bo
strong men, fight for the right, and
everything that will advance the In
terest of South Carolina? In the lan
guage of Joshua of old,
"This day choose ye whom you will
Be sure he Is an honest man and
an exponent of good government.

Hcst Routes of Traveling by Antonio*
bile from the Capital City ap this
(W. W. Ball In Columbia State.)
By the first (route) one crosses the
Congarec at the foot of Gervais street,
thence goes to Lexington court house,
and thence to Leesvllle, following the
lino of the Charlotte, Columbia &
Augusta ral'road 29 miles. At Lees
vllle a road to the right band is taken
to a point two miles from Cherokee
bridge over the Saluda river In Sa
luda county. Then a country or
neighborhood road is followed to the
bridge where the river is crossed and
another main highway is entered that
leads to Prosperity. The distance from
Leesvllle to Prosperity Is said to be
24 miles. Two years ago this was an
excellent road, speaking generally,bar
ring the two miles of neighborhood
road mentioned, and thnt short trip
is not wicked.
The second route is the same us the
first from Columbia to Lexington,
where one takes a road to the right,
crossing Saluda river by a bridge com
pleted a little more than a year ago
and thence leading to Chapln, on the
Columbia, Newberry & Laurens rail
road. This was the popular route last
summer, and the road between Lexing
ton and Chapln was In excellent condi
The third nnd most direct route is
the "Kork road." One crosses Broad
river by the "covered bridge," three
miles north of Columbia, and then the
C, N. & L. rallroad(though not in
sight of it) to Spring Hill, 21 miles
from Columbia and thence three miles
to Chapln. The distance to Chapln by
way of Lexington is probably five or
six miles greater. The distance to
Prosperity by this route is about 35
miles?or 18 miles shorter than by
the Leesvllle route.
At Prosperity, another league be
yond, the speedway of Newberry conn
ty Is reached, a 40-foot wide, graded
road, ditched on both sides, smooth
and hard. For ten miles Into New
berry It Is easily the best stretch of
the whole trip, .and one may travel
almost to the speed capacity of his ca
if one wishes. One should not so
We leave Newberry at 4 p. m. and
make the first ten miles to Gary'
Lane, in a few minutes. Then up to
Goldville the holes are more frequent
but the road Is fair. One must keep
an eye peeled always and everywhere
for the holes In these goor* roads. We
stop for a few minutes at Clinton and
then three miles north of Clinton there
has been a heavy shower. The ohalns
must he put on again. We drive into
Laurens at 6:15, distance from New
berry .11 miles, running time exclusive
of stops, about one hour and fifty min
utes. Laurens has a first class repair
shop and garage, conducted by W. P.
Iludgcns, and his charges are moderate.
Our disabled inner tubes and speed
ometer are promptly mended.
Next morning we leave at 8:15, the
37 miles to Greenville being the best

marked plainly, and on the sides are
advertisements of merchants and
bankers. Of course these markers are
maintained by the advertisers.
