Anderson County has just had a good
roads convention and Orangeburg and
York are to have conventions very soon
on the same subject. Newberry held i
her convention some time ago. Theso
are goc: things and will help the cause
as agitation of any good cause in mod- i
eration will do good. We need money
and the machinery for its wise and judi
cious expenditure and then we can have
roads. We are glad to see the agita- b
tation. It will help us in our efforts to
get some legislation through which will
give practical force to the sentiment.
We wish every cou-ity in the State
would hold a good roads convention this
present year and put the members of
the legis'ature on notice that something
would be expected of them. Ourentire
road law needs overhauling and revis
ion. Then we need to wake up to the (
fact that to build roads it takes money I
and we know of no way for the govern
ment to get, the money except by taxa
tion either direct or indirect, and it
makes little di ITerence how it comes out
of the people at last. We want to
recognize this fact at the beginning of
Almost any fellow with a glib tongue
can get on the stump and tell the people
of the beauties of good roads and even
dilate on the good results and the bele
fits of good roads. The peuole know and
a)l)reciit.e these things a!reaCdy. It I
nends no argument and it; rhetoric to
convince them on Lnese po'nts. What
we want is a practical plan for raising
the money so that the burden will not
bear heavily on any one aeand then a wise
and judicious and tusiness like system
for its expenditure h'lhese two must
come toget her.
It is good to keep up lie agitation and
out of it and the n1titude of counsel a
pltn will be evolved. It is coming just
as sire .; ainytihing e he and we
hope it may be soon. 'lhe l,pople of the
rural districts recognize its importance
as well as the pwolkiv of the cities and
towns. Rond imprlovelient is a neces- t
