LETTERS IN REGARD LIQUOR CONSTABLES PASSED BETWEEN GOVER NOR AND COUNTY OF FICIALS BOARD REPLIED I hat They Thought it Would be Unwise to Have Appoint ments Made. Tho following correspondence waa handed to The Intelligencer yester day morning, lt relatos to the desire of Governor Manning to appoint two whiskey conntublen in this county af ter he hud received a letter from Sheriff Ashley requcestlhg that this he done of the refusal of the coun ty boa;. J of commissioners to pay the salary of such officers if appointed. The letters follow: Columbia, July 21, 1915. To Hie Boarfd of County Commission ors, Anderson County, Anderson, S. C. Dear Sirs: - 1'ndor Section 840, Volume 2 of the Code of lilil?, I desire to appoint two constables to enforce the liquor laws of this state In Anderson coun ty. The statute provides that "the salaries and expenses of such office t's is to be paid out of the profits of the dispensaries wherein they may be es tablished, and out of the ordinary funds in cou.!.les wherein they nave not been estai''.?shed. I'nder this pro vision I w?uld be glad to have your assurrance that you will approve the bills for the compensation of these constables. I think that a fair rate of compensation would be $11.00 a day to each constable. 1 would be glad to hear from you on this at the earliest possible date. I am. Very truly yours, (Signed) nie ,aro l. Manning. Governor. Anderson, S. C.. July 24th, 1915. Gov. Ri. I. Manning, Columbia, S. C. Dear ?ir and Governor: It ls the un animous opinion of the board of county commissioners for Anderson county that tho appoint ment of whiskey constables would be entailing an unnecessary expense on thc county. The county funds are at a low ebb, and while we want luw enforcement, we do not think they are needed here. And that for us to agree to approve claims against the county for whiskey constables sal ary would be unfair to the county, and useless waste ot thc peoples money. Wo thought you did a wise thing when you removed constables from this county last spring. CourtB may compel us to pay your appointees, if any you make, but we desir j to onter our protest against any appointments that wo have to pay. We arc uncertain as to whether the $3.00 per day includes expenses. Wo had twp constables that were paid *2.50 per day and expenses. If yov conclude to make the appointments, we trust that If the first few months of service fail to show good results, that you will removo them. Since .the passage of the "Gallon n mo Uh" law there has been a great improve ment in liquor condition in this county. None of us know of ?ny flagrant violation of the law and wc are from several sections of thc county. Wo wish to hold up your hand; In law onforccmcnt, hut it ls 'tho waste of public funds we arc pro testing against. Yours truly, (Signed) J. Mack King, Chairman. J. L. McGee. W. A. Spearman, H. D. Smith, Board of Co. Com'rs., A. C. Columbia. July 26, 1915. MT. Joe M. H. Ashley, Sherill. Anderson, S. C. Dear Slr: In pursuance of your request ot Muy 8th, followed by your verbal request a few days ago, to appoint two con stables for Anderson county to break up the illegal liquor business. I took up this matter .on the 21st, with the board of county commissioners,' as compensation for the services of these men would have to be paid by the county under Section 840, Code of IMS, Volume 2. I have heard from the board of county commissioners this morning protesting strongly against the appointment of constables, saying "the courts may compel us to pay your appoint?es, if any you make, but we desire to enter on . protest have to pay;" and also saying, "We ag?tn3t any appointments that we wish to hold up your hands in law enforcement, but it ls the waste of public funds we are protesting against." I do* not think ti.iat lt ls proper for me to go ahead and ap point constables In the face of such s protest from the board of county commissioners, therefore 1 do not ree my way to the appointment of the men yon have asked for. In view of the attitude of the county commissioners against em ploying extra mea. and In view, too, of your statements to me that the liquor traffic ls going on and *ho"M be stopped. I want you to redouble your efforts to this and hope that by vigorous action by you and your de puties and the magistrates and their constables, that the trade In Illicit llauor will be brokon up. I am, Very truly yours, Richard I. Manning. Governor. NOW TAKING UP TRACKS ON SOUTH MAIN STREET MR. W. W. JOHNSON BE GAN WORK YES TERDAY CARS ARE STOPPED And Passengers Are Transferring -Manner in Which the Work is to Be Done is Interesting. Thc actual work of tak'nc up the street car tracks of the Southern Pub lic I'tllltleB company on South .Main street was begun yesterday afternoon. Mr. W. W. Johnson, who has tho contract for this work ttatcd yester day that probably lu< would begin la vim; the concrete by Friday. Owing to* the fact t: a. the street cor tracks are being lorn up, pas sengers using th ? cars to and from Orr and Gluck mills and to and (rom Riverside mill have to transfer from Church to River street. This sec tion will be the first one paved and the work will go right on down South Main street. After taking nup the tracks the first work to be done will be that ?>f taking un the old water main which was placed beneath one of the old rails. A new main has been placed along side the old one to take its place. After the old man ls removed the ditch will be filled with a rock and sank mixture. One noticeable feature of the street ear track paving will be thal ?hero will be no wooden crossties and no wooden ballasts under them. The rail for its entire length will be sup ported by a concreate beam, rein forced with corrugated steel bars, In accordance with modern concrete practice. ? This beam by its strength and silfTnoss will distribute the loads over such a large area that the set tlement of.the tracks will be even, and have no effect on the pavement. A wide bearing plate will be used under the rall, 'so that the weight will be distributed over cig.it inches width, andv there can be no crushing of Hie concrete. The beam constructions will bo anchored at two-foot intervals with long bolts, whi;h will be turned un der the reinforcing bars in the con crete beam. Great attention will be also paid to the joints nv the track sinco ft' has been conceded that t ic pounding break up the pavement. Where one rall is a little higher than thc one adjoining, the joint will bc ground to an absolute level. ' The paving where tho tracks will be placed will bc about IS inches deep and will gradually slope to a thickness of about five inches on the outside of the tracks and to thc cen ter. The paving will extend 18 inches on tho outside of the rails. In doing this work the rails will be put down on levelling blocks bo fore the concrete is put down. Thc mixture will then be put down all around the raiils, tho girder and the connecting bolts, so that when the concrete dries, they will be 'absolutely secure.
