THE COUNTY IS OUT OF DEBT.
The $1200 paid into the county
treasury last week for cotton seed li
censes proved a great blessing to the
county commissioners. They needed
just about that sum to wipe out all
the past indebtedness of every kind
of this county, and last Saturday they
paid off dollar for dollar every claim
presented to them, that had been ap
proved prior to the present fiscal
year commencing Nov. 1, 1890.
Our county has been laboring un
der a big debt ever since the Demo
cratic party came into posession of
things, and we doubt if the county
has been out of debt since the war.
But we are out of debt now! The
present board of county commission
ers are to be felicitated upon the ad
mirable way they have managed coun
ty financial affairs, and the people
owe them a debt of gratitude for their
economical management. And, by
way of parenthesis, we must not fail
to include the name of Mr. E. Con
yers Horton, who was a member of
the board the term immediately pre
ceding the present. The board then
consisted of Way, Hobbs, and
Horton; it now consists of T. Adams
Way, W. H. H. Hobbs, and L. T.
Fischer. These four gentlemen, who
for the past three years have been
our financial agents, are due great
praise, and the county is aware of the
But there is another person to
whom belongs no little credit in this
matter, and who for four years work
ed faithfully and ceaselessly to con
summate the present condition of
things. We refer to Capt. D. J.
Bradham, who for four years was our
county auditor, and who has done
-.more to put the county where it now
linancially is, than any other dozen
men in the county. He was in a po
sition (auditor) where he could bene
fit the county, and he most faithfully
worked in the interest of the public
ood, even at the sacrifice of his
bealth. He saw that no property es
caped taxation, and that every dollar
collected was duly and properly ac
counted for. He labored hard too to
keep the tax levy down as low as it
was, and to him alone belongs the
credit of a ten mill tax levy for this
county this year.
Such officers as Auditor Daniel J.
Bradham sometimes in the proper
discharge of their duties make ene
mies, and are hated by some ambi
tions persons who think they should
rule the world and who cannot brook
anyone who will not fawningly bow1
to their dictation, but then such men
as Bradham are after all the great
benefactors of the human family.
SLet us all be truly thankful that
the county is out of debt, and hope
>that hereafterwe shall be able to pay
a's we go.
~'Trial Justice Mahoney Reinstated, Not
*Last Wednesday Governor Tillman
examined the papers of the "Mahoney
trial," and, upon the advice of Attor-!
n2iey-General Pope, he instructed the
S erety of State to send to Mr. Ma-!

trial jostice, andi that he must file a
bond, take the oath, and get a com
mission. In other words, he must

cording to the old law, would have
Sbeen of force only till the next session,
of the legislature, when the appoint
ment ouldhave been subject to con-1
' aionorrejection by the senate;
but under the new law, passed last
December, the governor has no power
to revoke a trial justice's commission!
except by the advice of the senate.
~~dthe new commission itself would

Mr. Mahoney's attorney, Mr. M. 0.

Tegovernor again took the mat

careful investigation, he camne to the
conclusion that Mr. Mahoney was not
really and legally removed from his

A Bomb for the Barkeepers.
FLORENCE, Sep. 22.-No little excitement
was caused in town to-day by the explosion
or a bombshell set by some mem bers of the
Good Templars for the barkeepers. Eleveni
out of the twelve liquor sellers in the city
-were arraigned before the grand jury to-day
charged with violating the law in regard to 1
putting screens before their counters, and a
true bill, was found in every case. The
twelfth man was not reported because hisif
fi~rst name could not be learned, his busi
ness being done under his surname only.
Most of the barkeepers have since re
moved the screens. This action took them
completely by surprise, the law relating to 4
screens being looked upon as a dead letter.
- It is probable that the case will be taken to)
-the Supreme Cour't. Feeling runs very high
*in thematter. The city council has already
served notice on the barkeepe~rs that Sun
day liquor selling must be stopped.

A True Reformer.
MANNI~G, Sep. 17.--In my corre'spon
dece in to-day's Wl'd, it is stated that
"the treasurer last year collected within 20
per cent. of all the taxes." It should have
been "wvithin 2 per cent." Our county
has always collected within 10 per cent.,
but this year it was nearly a complete col
lection of the tax assessment. Very much of
the credit of this very fine showing is due
to the efiforts of Sheriff D. JT. Bradham, who
was then auditor of the county. Capt.
Bradham was auditor for four yed~rs, and
he did more to get the county out of finan
cial entanglement, and to put it oa a solid
business basis, than was ever done be-fore
by any set of men. He is regarded in this
:unty as the watch dog of p~ublic affairs.
