ItOinds att linst, Says Correspondent.
E4litor of Tle Advertiser:
I write relative to the work of the
lighway Commission. I see from
their r(port that they recommend a
change of grade of road from Clinton
to ilAurens, which has been reported
as the best auto road In the state. Now,
let's go back a little in 1878. Whilo a
member or the legislature I voted for
ia bill to appropriate $100,000 to build
a rail(oad from Greenwood to Spar
talburg, and $50,000 to extend the
road from lLaurens to Greeiville,
neither line touching Sullivan town
ship. Vhy did I do it? Because Liau
r01ns county needed help at that lime.
Laurens was a one-horse town; with
Robinson lotel, a few commercial
houses andi a number of small shops
where you could get all the hooze YOu
wanted. She had shade trees along
the streets with chairs for the clerks
to sit in. About the time of the Crews
riot my faithful body servant, Sam,
who had gone with me during the 'Civil
War, had a petty case in court and
when the trial came off, lost his case.
ie returned from Laurens very much
disappointed and indignant at the ac
tion of the court. lie said, 'Marse .oe,
Laurens is no place to hold court. They
ought to turn hert out." I mention this
to show the condition of Laurens at
that time. Princeton Is 20 miles to
Waterloo, IN miles to Laurens, 16 miles
to Gray Court where we have benn
paying taxes on railroad bonds for a
number of years and 110 direct benefit
.received. Now justice demands that
the Highway Commission should build
the first line of good roads from Lau
rens to Princeton in lieu' of the tax
Sullivan township has paid the coun
ty for railway bonds. At Princeton
you connect with a top-soil road to
Greenville and -Peizer and from ;Pel
zer to Anderson, a good road bed.
T[he question might be asked, why
should the i Highway Commission paral
lel the line of railway if the taxes to
be paid is for the benefit of the tax
plyers? It looks that Fountain inn,
Gray Court and other points in the
county should be satisiled with tle
$1150,000 in vestim ent which they have
been enjoying for years and let Sulli
van township get a little of the $300,
000 voted. Why bles.4 you, when they
wanted to vote tle road bonds, they
sent a strong delegation from Laurens
and Gray Court. to Princeton and had
speakers from Greenville to persuade
the townshi) to vote for the bonds, and
we voted it. Now, I ask those same
men who were at Princeton, to see that
justice is illeeted out to Sullivan town
ship. 'he distance from Kinards to
lountain Inn is 36 miles. From Laui
rens to IMnoree 12 1-2, Laurens to Cross
11111 and Vaughnville 23; Boyds Cross
roads to Waterloo and Puckett's Fer
ry, 10; Laurens to Princeton 18. The
point I make is that the funds will be
exhau iist ed before lhe 11 gli Iway Coin
mnission reaches thle Princeton line un
less they build our1 line among the
first, which is rightly deservedl. WVe

been many times in German ports, but
I never saw people looking more 1pros

as the government paid them eight
marks a day for doing nothing they
did not seeni to think there -was any

they appeared very short of were soap
