\\;The Obohee delegation haB been
holding back the Ooon?e supply bill
until wo saw what would be the out-1
cpih?i of the new revenue bills that:)
are pending. The gas?llne/tax blU;
has passed both houses, and hos hoon;
rAtlned and signed by the Governor,
One. cent of this tux goes, to the coun
ty, and one cent to the State. The
Oconee delegation has passed ? 'bill I
providing that the one cent gas tax,
apd the one:mill levy '?n all the tax
able property In .Oconee county be
turned over to the Highway Commis
sion with the automobile tax/to bel
,H8ed in hjaintenance on all,'the lm-:
proved rb'ads builtby . the\;Highway
Commission In Oconee county.
1 wahj: to say just at. this pdlftt;: In
behalf.of the (Highway Commission,
il have^ received letters ot , Ififorma
rtlon from every section, of Oconee
county, and from men in1 all walks of
life, commending the Highway Com
mission for their faithful and impar-, |
tlal service .to the ?entire county.
Mr. Editor, I have received lot tors
from a great many of my'constitu
ents asking mo to reduce taxes, l
have answered practically all of
them by asking them if thoy wanted
their schools shortened or their
toads to go uhworked, and they all. |
say "No." I have made Up my mind
to do my duty ?as I see lt without
fear of any one. at tho same time re
alizing my responsibility to my'con*
stituents. To be a representative of
th? people at. this particular time,{i?
a'DCfOl.exing problem. In' my Q'wt?tf,
monWits, when I am considering
What.(? the best thing to do, I came
to thi^', conclusion: That If. my" con
stituents could exchange places With
me for a while they,could better un
fore the House and'S?n?ti at this
session bearing tho-iabol of "Reform
Revenue Bills." I am trying to sup
port all of these bills that I can con
scientiously support, with the view
of lowering the tax on real estate
and agricultural lands. The Income
tax bill has caused considerable ex
citement in the Sonate, and has been
ably discussed by distinguished Sen
ators from every angle. I am sup
porting the amendment to this bill
by Senator McGee, of Greenwood.
Representative Dalton has intro
duced and passed through the House
a bill requiring the Blue Ridge rail
road to build a depot at West Union.
This bill, will be before tho Senate
for consideration this week.
There has been a bill introduced
in the Senate by Senator Llghtsoy.
This bill passed both Houses and has
been ratified and signed by the Gov
ernor. Senator Llghtaey's bill is as
follows: "To make it unlawful for
any person to make or circulate any
false, statement calculated to cast
suspicion upon the solvency of any
bank in South Carolina, and to pro
vide penalties therefor." The penal
ties are very heavy, but in my mind
are not too severe. The banks have
been very kind and indulgent to the
people in this time of deflation, and
? think we ought to show our ap
preciation to them by protecting
them against false rumors.
J have Just had a conference with
Governor Cooper, and he informs me
that he has vetoed Senator Wells'
bill extending the time for payment
of taxes, as lt will work a hardship
on the schools, and at the same time
will not benefit any ono-tn the long
.I don't know Just how long we
will be here. It looks as If we will
be* in session at least two more
weeks. As for me, I'm here until lt
ls over, or at least until we get tho
necessary funds for the rural graded
schools of the State. I am still of
the opinion that we ought to wipe
Sut Illiteracy in the State of South
arollna. We have passed an eight
mill tax on all districts not having
this amount of tax, in order that
they may got tho benefit of term ex
tension. We do this* believing lt to
be our duty to the entire enucational
Interest of Oconee county.
Faithfully your servant,
W. P. Mnson.

Tho Toxaway Dom - People Along
Kcowoe Should be Paid First.
Toccoa, Ga., Feb. 21, 1922.
Editor Kcowoe Courier:
I notice in the last issue of your
paper that the Toxaway Company
contemplates rebuilding tho Toxa
way dam.
I wish to enter my emphatic pro
test against the rebuilding of such
dam until thc people along the Keo
wee river have been paid for the
severe damages to crops, lauds and
other property, which losses woro
caused by the breaking of tho old
dam a few years ago. Even after the
peoplo have been paid for tho dam
ages by reason of the giving way of
tho old dam, said company should
not bo allowed to rebuild the Toxa
way dam until a .good and suftlclcit
bond has been filed with the Secre
taries of State of North and South
Carolina to cover any damages which
may occur in the future, caused by
the broaklng of the new dam. /
I sincerely hope our wise legisla
tors In South and North Carolina
will pnss such laws as will exactly fit
this case. I
An injunction should be filed in
the North Carolina courts to stop the
rebuilding of this dam.
The Congress of the United States
should onact laws to protect her citi
zens from such companies.
Yours truly,
. b. H. .Alexander.

Versailles, Feb. ;26.T-<Henrl Desir
Landru, "Bluebeard of . Oana'baijs,''
convicted of tho murdor of ten wo
men and one youth, gave bis Ufa this
morning in exchange -for the eleven
he had taken. The triangular knife
of the guillotino fell at 6.05 o'clock,
25 minutes after tho time originally
set for the execution, the. delay, caus
ing many to express the erroneous
opinion that Landru waa making a
confession. 'Mysterious until death,
Landru resented Father Lplselle's
inquiry ao to whether he, had any
lonfession to make.
"It is an insult Co a man like me,"
was his reply.> "*?ad I any. confession;
to i make; I' .wo,uld> have >. :mad,?\4t; lo u#
ag^" but never did he utter tho oho
trial. &n . ' 1 *n ?f
He refused the sacrament, but he
conversed a few moments- with the
prleBt. "I shall be brave, never fear
as to that,", he told the clergyman.
The guillotine was erected only a
few feet from the main entrance of
?he Jail. tAt 6 o'clock tho doors of
the prison opened slowly, revealing
in the courtyard the procurator gen
eral, the warden of the prison and
Landru's two lawyers, M. Moro Giaf
feri and M. Duetrll.
Then Landru appeared, clad In
dark trousers and white shirt. His
beard, which was one of his most
striking characteristics, and which
had become familiar to thousands
through publication of his picture
during the trial, had been tri m nt od,
his head shaven and his neck a?d
face were deathly pale. He walked
exactly Ave steps before the execu
tioner's assistant caught him about
the waist and leveled him on the ta
ble, which was Immediately up-end
ed. The heavily weighted . knife
slid down, and the whole affair was
over In less than 20 seconds. Landru
never faltered from the time he ap
peared In the door. He gave the guil
lotine one look, squared his shoul
ders and walked erect, uttering not
a word. v ' ' /
Among the throng's that* stood In
the streets adjacent tp the place of
execution there seemed to be more
of pity than of bitterness, and never
a word of Invective against the man
who had just paid the penalty for a
series of tho foulest murders la the
criminal annals of France was heard.

Thirty Tons of Dy ni vm J to Explodes
Not Far from the City.
Chicago, Feb. B. - A declaration
thai the dynamite explosion which
rocked Chicago and suburbs last
night was the result of a criminal act
was made to-day by II. M. Perbqh
ner, assistant fire marshal. .
The explosion occurred at the Con
sumers' Company McCook q\iraryr
near Argo, a suburb. The damage
caused was estimated at about one
million dollars. No lives are known
to have been lost.
"There was little gelatin in the
powder, and lack of. gelatin means
that the powder would haye to be
touched off," Mr. Perbohner ex
plained. Two of his assistants agreed
with him as to the cause of the blast.
.F\ W. Grear, resident manager of
tho quarry, and L- H. Stewart, mas
ter mechanic, declared their belief
that shovelers who had failed to ob
tain employment were' responsible
for the explosion. They said that the
company hr ' not renewed its agree
ment with tue union after Jan. 1.
