The purchasers of The Anderson in

The people are awakening to the
economy of building good roads. For
many years every effort bus been bent
Howard enlightenment on the good
roads question. Wo have been doing a
great deal of talking but not much
working. All of this has been neces
sary to convince the majority of peo
ple than an expedlture for good roads
is a real economy. The time has about
come when the people are ready to
support a real good roads movement.
Mr. Todil. In writing to The Advertiser
recites facts which are admitted when
he says that much talking has been
('one hut not much action taken. The
time lias about arrived for some ac
tion to be taken, not next week perhaps
nor next month, hut very soon. Plans
should be laid now and before many
months have passed some concrete
action should be taken towards pro
viding a system of roads for this
county. How shall It he done? The
Advertiser would like to hear some
more on the road question.

THE CROP FUND.
Pres. io. W. Dabbs, of the state farm
ers union, came out several days ago
With a statement to the effect that
some of the banks receiving the de
posits from tho government crop fund
contemplate charging six per cent In
terest to those hanks which desire to
borrow of them for their customers.
Mr. Dabbs states that the government
depositories in Columbn will ell u ge
ihe six per cent rate. If the deposi
tories generally charge as high in
terest as this, the funtf will Tall far
short of meeting the requirements ex
pected of It. But very few of the
smaller banks will be willing to pay
?his much interest to the government
depositories when the depositories
themselves are securing the money at
two per cent. The protits should be
more equitably divided. These smal
ler hanks could have done better If
th'> money had been deposited m the
New York hanks as formerly. Our
Iden was that the government deposi
tories WOI'O to act somewhat as whole*
sale distributor for tho government
distributing the money in large
amounts and on small margins to the
other hanks and these Wore *.o act in
their I'Bltnl capacity as retailers of the
fund, it seems now that the deposi
tories, or some of them, are not "it
tcrlng into the spirit of Ihe plan and
are trying to make more than their
share of profit out of the fund. Sec
MoAdoo should take some atops to see
to it that smaller hanks are shown
more consideration, so that the crop
fund will go v.iu re it is Intended to
go, to the farming districts which it Is
expected to relieve.

Line From Columbia to Augusta to be
Ituilt Immediately. Branch to Ciecn
Augusta. Ga., Sept. I.?After a meet
ing of the directors of the Carolina &
Georgia Hallway company was held
today it was announced that construc
tion work on the projected electric line
between Augusta and Columbia will
begin in about 30 days. Michael P.
McGrath of New York, contractor of
the road, who came here direct, from
Washington State, where he has been
delayed by a contract of magnitude,
attended the meeting, having arrived
in Augusta this morning. It was de
finitely decided that the electric line
shall go by way of Trenton and John
ston, after leaving Granlteville, in
stead of by way of Kuroka and that a
branch line shall be built from John
ston to Greenwood, making Johnston
a junction point.
The bonded indebtedness of the road
was authorized to beln crossed from
$2,nii0.noo to $3,000,000 and two new di
rectors, J. A. Lott and J. M. Cranston,
This afternoon James 1'. Jackson,
president of the road, the contractor,
Mr. McGrath, Chief Engineer s'.iand
and Mr. Ix>tt left for Trenton and
Johnston. They will go tomorrow over
the proposed line from Johnston to
Oreenwood, and, !t is understood, will
go from Greenwood to Columbia.
