COUNTY-OFFICIAL
Delegation Has Refused
Provision for Superviso
After an all-tiay conference Thurs
day between tle Supervisor and the
County delegation, at which the super
visor asked the delegation to make
provis-i6n for the tip-keep oL the chain
gang for the rest of the yCar, the meet
Ing broke up late at n ight aft er the
dolxal ion had deianded t hat the
niperv'isor 1l11lI1e a statement showing
that tle appropriation made at the
last session of the legislature for road
crxork had been s;ent for work actual
ly done this- year and that if this could
not be done that the supervisor fuin
ish a state'ment :;how inog how much of
this year's appropriation had been
used iI paying off a (lecit of last
year. Senator 0. 1. (hlovin was not
prese lat ath ie last. 1meet ig of the d:ay,
having departed earlier in the after
noon when the dek:ton as a whole

which have -::dmustedt eilr appropria

The (elegalatin:t to Ih (Ly
again Friday and yesterda, when it
was indlcated to them hy outs de Iar
-ties that the silelV I would prob
ably make tip : :ltate'ment. In the
-mii(dIle of the afternoon the delegation
(Irew lp a statenwnt of its own and
pirented it to The Advertiser for pub
liention. This Ib-, foulin ~ aillncther col
umn1)11 of this iaper.
The delega tIon wCnt toI C(11nton ' ast
nihpt upon the invitation of the Ci, n
ton Chambler of Com nerce. It is uln
derstool that the dielegatlon wais to
be asked to Iege t.ie Ieayn'at of

proposed to mubsr ibe to l1n1.1tain the
county chainganig while it works tho
propyosed Ca houn a:hway through
the lower part of the County. Super
visor Watta, accordilg to li.; Auae,
imenit, has alreadly agreel to send the
gang there and allow it to be usedl 1)y
the '01111ton) people at their exen
provided the Coity delegatioll does
-tOt make provision for It as tile super
visor has aked. RIepieseltative Nance,
before leaving yesterr'ay, said that he
could not consistently agree to :uch
i proposition.
The110 contention of tie sulpervisor, as
It came out at the varlous micetin4s,
is that by reason of tile cut of $1.1,50)0
under' last year's appropriat-ion an1d
of $20,000 ulInder this year's budget and
with the greatly increased size of the
claingang, tile appropriation foi chailn
gang I)uioseshs 1118 eI) xhullsted. The
dolegation claims that tile s11pervisor
Tefused to come to Columbila to tell
what ie wanted 'or tile Current year
-and that they had to go by last year's
Supply bill, cutting dlownl the appro
prlation in view of the lowered cost of
living.
The. Acts of 1920 siow: that the
suporvisor asked tilen for $58,,161.87
and that much was 'granted Im,1. Tie
report to tihe Comlptroller General this
year shiows that lie asked for $61,161.70
and was gIven $44,500.
1fl0presentative Carrol D). Nance, who
la8 (lone mlost of tile tailing for tihe
-delegation, said( that lhe has1 n1o per
Bonal motives in Ils refusal to make
(110 desired alpproplriationl, lhflt thatt he
si mliy wishes the p~ublic to b~e fully
informed( as to tihe finlances of tho
COUnlty so that the voters will under
stand why at raIse In the tax levy man1
he necessary. If there was a d(eclt
brought over from, last year, lhe saidl,
ho wished for the blamne to be placedi
wheve IL rightly belonged and 11e did(
not ltlih it to ap~pear thalt tis delegaI
tioni had1 been extravakgant in I!....p
proprtationls.
From the statemlent mlade b~y SuperC
visor WVatts andl Julished~ below, it
willl .be found .that lhe clis a1 deOlett
frpmn last year (If only ab~out $5,000),
whelreas It had1( been generally believed(,
from indefinilte remlarks made in thle
meeOtinlgs, that tile dlefiet wasl ar oungI~
*$25,000. UClzensI wh'io hatve been fol
