cerned., ii is reported to us that sen
oral osea pcs ha vi: boo n effected lately
and tiltd it is now necessary to mriin
taln^lguard about the building to

recom.hiend. therefore, that Hie Coun

Ww; find the county chain gang
also /in good condition and desire to
comniend the Supervisor for bis ex
celle!? Management of same. On ac
countant the fact that the roads ot
the county can apparently be worked
and Kept up moro economically by
the It??e'.of modern road machinery
tlm^Jpy'ilsing mules in the old way.
we Vffifomniend that the Supervisor,

tyr^(1p^ which ls
now connected with the chain gang,
and also all surplus machinery and
equipment for which he bas no use
under the present system of road
lt has been called to our atten
tion that some, of our citizens along
the public highways ure violating th'j
laws with respect to rilling ditches
and waterways along the public roads
and turning waler into the high
ways, and in other ways. We com
mend the Supervisor for publishing
the highway laws and urge every
citizen to acquaint himself willi the
regulations on this subject and aid
tho Supervisor in the conduct of his
work for the upbuilding of Ibo coun
Wo Hnd all of the county offices
well kept and in good shape.
We desire to recommend, If wc

Circuit Judges impose moro sever*
sentences on Oconee county for tin
infraction of the criminal laws ol
this State. We respectfully call at
tontion to tho sentences of this Court
