We are very sorry thle ('ommiiisssio,i
e's ait, their meeting oni Satuirdlay de
el(ded not to bild h the bridge at Kemp
s.m's Ferry. l'Cspecially since Saluda
and private parties had agreed to pay13
nearly two-'thirds of the cost. As we
poinited out seime time ago thieire was
nio additional tax asked for, and If there
had been It would have beeni of small
conseqjuenice to each tax payer in comi
parison to thle bene its to aeerue to the
citlz.or s of t his c'oun1ty.
We publish fu. piroceed ings of the
commissioners on this subject. We
uniderstanid that thle two commiiissioners
who were absent would have vo0tedl for'
the building of the bridge if they had
been present. We regiret their at
sence. There should have been a full
meeting of the hoard when there was
suchl a question to be settled.
WVe aire told U.y t hose initer'ested that
the bridge is by Rn o eans dlead and
that sooner or' later it will be bunilt.
The opp)osition to 4t is Riot based on
sound economic groundIs, rnid we hope
those who oppose L will sooni see the
er'ror' of their way and become enithiusic
a 'tic support ers of the free bridge.
