IL I. AULUL, EmTott.
A GO) SETTLEDIMNT.
It will be remembered that some
years ago No. I Township voted $10,
000 to aid in building the Augusta and
Newberry Railroad, and that, No. 8
Township voted $10,000 to the same
r.tilroad. The road was graded and
the bonds issued and delivered. The
road has never been built. The bonds
are said to be the most regularly issued
railroad bonds of any in the State.
A little more thant a year ago suit
was entered by the holders of the
bonds to secure their money on
them. In similar cases the Su
preme Court of the United ctat.s
hast decided that they are valid
bonds and the townships would event
ually have to pay them. We took the
position at the time the suit was insti
tuted that it would be a useless expen
diture of money to employ counsel to
fight. the Case, and that the best thing
the townships could do would he to
save all the cost they couhl and g'et
ready to pay them or to etleet a con
promise, if possible. with the ho:ders
of the bonds.
Messrs. 11unt & llunt. ' 't C.
breath and Geo. Johnston. of
Newberry bar, -were emp:o ed i

The settlement secured for t he town
ships knocki out all interest prior to
1891, and the balance, principal and in
1erest, is settled at 0,U cents on the dol
lar. In ot.her words, No. 1 Township
will have to pay about $32,000 and No.
8 about $8,000, making the debt of both
townships just about what. the debt of
No. I was originally, without, any av
cumulated interest to pay. it is to be
refunded in bonds to run .1 years,
interest at. 7 per cent. intil 19 ), and
after that interest, at 6 per cent. Iln
der the general refunding act, after
1906, one-fortieth of the principal, to
gether with the interest, to he paid
This, we say again, we consider a
very good settlement for the townships.
It is hard to have to pay fir a ilroad
that was never built, but. it is decidedly
bettor to ply $40,00C. than to pay $9t,
000, as we woull have beenl compeltled
to do had no compromise been etTected.
Tle attorneis had beei it work on the
settlement, about 18 months, and tle
Legislature has just pw-ed two acts
validating and carrying into elTeet the
compromise agreed upon.
The treasurer of the to.s submin
his report of exptenses and recei pts fx
the year 189)7 in this issue. We hope
the citizens will give the re.port careful
attention. I t will he seen that the totaul
recelipts of the town for the year were
nearly $20,000. The biggest item of
expense was the street dlepartm t,t
and It is right that it should be.
Everyone who walks the streets must
recognize that the streets arec in better
condition today than they have been in
at long time. TIhe fact is, when we take
off the cash balance on hand the first of
January it will he seen that about half
the money spent was on the streets.
All of thema should be maeadamized,
and mtoney' sp)ent in that way will not
have to he repeated each year.
The water works bonds and tax and
expense, it,seems to uts, should be in a
sot)arate rep)ort and kept distinct from
th aregular finances of the town, be
eause it is managed by a sep)arate
board, and they atre responsible for its
conduct. It would be well, it, seetms to
us, to have a statement from this d -
part,ment and let the people k now how
much of the tax has b) x( n atnd is to bet
utsed to maintaint the system, or wh eth
or thte revenue from p)rivate consumetrs
tmakes it, self-sustaining.
WVe only desired to call attention to
the treport of the treasurer.
