If every man who thinks he will vote

Tor the bond issue will want to see
that I heir money's worth is in the
j Kullicie ncy of the roads; a; well as
in tlx1 amount of roads built.
Many persona seemingly mistake
j the word bond issue, am! call it

and other taxes are-?that la?they
j must be paid; il is the obedience o.f

would rather pay for them than take
I for an inheritance the had roads
which the present has-to give them;
Just such roads as the past haB
willed to the present and which the |
; present ha3 had tu take and keep up
with more money to each mile than
would he required for ten or twenty
miles or scientifically built road.
Thi'? is the expense the present is
seeking to escape from, and which
they desire to deduct from the future
and Its system of roads.
Once while listening to debates in
a Press Club meeting, when roads
were tho highway cry of the country,
an editor wa.i opposed to advocating
bonds because, though it might bene
fit the present, it would burden pos
terity. A brother editor as full of
mirth as o' common sense called
out, "Hang it. v. bat has posterity
ever done for us'.'"
An editor of a four page weekly in
a mill town observed that about
three thousand persons looked to
him for the news ar.d they were good
pay. "If 1 advocate bond Issue," be
}>nld, "I shall have to look for anoth
er job. Everyone of my subscriners
will quit. They won't sec what good
roads mean to them, so they must
pay for them?their turnpike is up
am' down the mill ft'jr."
"Ho they own pr? .?e-ty?" was ask
"O. very few."
"Then convince them that they
havc nothing to pay if they have
nothing to own."
Hut the editor had to visit every
subscribers home and fully explain
that If they had no property, they
might use Hie good roads until king
dom conic and pay nothing toward
them. Even then the scare-head of
bond issue frightened many into not
voting for it, aud not Voting against
It, /vliich helped in the road failure
The fact that manufacturing towns
whose people may not have property
but have free use of the very best
roads ever built, ought to induea them'
to vole witli a vim for bond issue,
which only means taxes to the pro
perty man and lets the laborer go
free beyond his usual poll and road
tax which -ho pays from 21 to r>0
years of age. There are no people
who enjoy the country roads more
than residents of manufacturing
towns. They dot the roads like blos
soms in spring time, going to and
from visits in the country, and sing
ings in country churches..; Tlioy are
tho very life of tho country roads in
the long summer days; tho buggies

It has always been a strange thing
to me that, as a rule, the people-who
pay the least and receive the greatest
benefit are always the ones who op
pose a tax of this kind. I recall once'
n public' meeting to consider the ques
tion of voting a tax for school Im
provement in a certain district. The
presiding offcer who had no children
to educate, and who was the largest
tax payer asked the privilege of cast
ing the first ballot for the tax. The
man who most vigorously opposed the
tax had six children to educate and
his tax would have been forty cents.

Is passing strange. The thing to do
is to show him It is to his interest

I 'remember once where a township
proposed to vote bonds for roads and

THE TAX THF. AVERAGE ANDER
SON COUNTY FARMER PAYS
TO BAD ROADS
If any farmer will take t> few min
utes he will realise that I h himself
is paying each year an enormous tax
or toll to bad roads; and it is a tax
which not only does not yield any
return ut all. but docn himself and
bis property a positive bann.
Suppose we take a man whose pro
perty Is assessed at $1.000. Under
the proposed bond issue if the maxl
! mum rate is charged of :'>? cents on
! the $100 worth of property his road
i tax for the year will V >:>.r.o.
I A man who owns Jl.uOO worth of
property usually has a team 01 two
I horses or mules. Say this man lives
I .. miles from mark''1, and makes one
trip a week during the year, lie. us
ual!" makes more than this, in going
I to market over tie- present system of
read-, he can only haul one-fourth
I lite amount which he can haul over a
I good road. It takes him from one to
: three hours longer to ko a id return
i from market than il would over a
i good road; so thai on each trip we
I will say be loses three hours of him-1
i self and team in eomg to market
and carries only half a load. Thus he
I would have to make two trips tn or
j der to get the amount to market
which he could carry over a good
, road with one trip, and on the two
trips lie would lose six hours. Now
any man and team is worth at Icait
! ;to cents an hour, in some places
i they are now churging lu cents an
I hour. Then six hours lost at 30 cents
an hour is $1.80. which each farmer
I practically loses in each trip when
! he markets his produce. Averaging
i Ills trips during the year at .VJ would
I make his tax to bad roads $!l^.l!0,
I which is about what the average far
mer paying tax on $'.000 worth of
] property loses during the year in ac
tual time of himself and his team
and. loss of time in not being able to
carry a full load, to say nothing of
the wear and tear on bis team and
barney:; and vehicle, the lack or op
' portunity of attending church when
'desired, the impossibility of bis child
ren reaching school regularly, and
I the lack of opportunity for carrying
! on the social intercours,, which is
j necessary to the-life of every human
Another tax he pays to bad roads is
that in ca.ie of severe illness it is
practically impossible to obtain a
doctor in any reasonable time, so
> that Iiis family is constantly running
ii risk of losing their lives in case.; of
emergency because of the physical
impossibility of getting a physician
there within a reasonable lime over
the poor roads. All these latter
phases cannot be. reckoned in dol
lar? and ceyls.
if you own less than $1.000 worth
of taxable property you can divide
the above r.um and get what you are
paying to the bad roads. If you own
more than $1,000 worth of property,
you can multiply the above amount
add get your tax to bad roads. Are
you going to submit to this tax longer
because it does not come in actual
pennies out of your pocket? It comes
out of you. out of your team, out of
the net earnings of your farm, and
in reality out of your pocket.?Taken
from argument of Joseph Hyde
Pratt, State Geologist of North Caro
Uncle Josh "Agin" ii "Agin."
Editor The Anderson Intelligencer:
I am very sorry that it 13 neces
sary for me to say any more conceru
I ing the bond issue, hut iu your com
ments on my former article you "have
misquoted tnc more or le::3, either by
mistake or inteutionality.
In the first place, you said that I
had asstcrled that I was in favor of
goo.l roads but- wanted them by di
rect taxation. I said that while we
would all like better roads (for who
would be against good roads) but 1
am against anything that would add
on to the taxpayers of Anderson
County, at present.
Now. you say another objection to
my article is that I do not seem to
have absolute confidence in the com
mittee named to handle this fund. It
may be that you want a fact about a
good portion of this coiuhilttcc. If so
it is in tills way, I will ask you one
thing! You have only been a resi
dent of Anderson County for a short
while, and why do you .try to run
your estimation of these particular
men far beyond those of citizens that
have been born and raised right up
with them and have known them in
all of their ways and doings? True,
there is some objection there but not
all because the whole thing is ob
jectionable from beginning to end.
Now, Mr. Editor, you seem to talk
like the whole objection of us peo
ple is from a .political standpoint
why you know that this la not true,
for look around you Tn the city and
country and you will find the most
influential men on both sldeB of the
administration lighting the issue. So
it could not be a political fight either
way, and I think you-should be cr<
icized more or less for your attempt
to make it a political fight, thinking
no doubt that this would tend to
strengthen the measure;
. Mr. Editor, why do you keep say
ing that the'country people will only
have to pay thirty per cent, of this
tax, that you and the corporation will
pay tho other seventy. Why'who are
the corporations and new-way who
makes them? Are they not made and
supported by the country?. And be
long to the country? Does not the
country keep them up? Then why do
you" want to join yourself to them in
order to make your burden lighter?
Don't you know that corporations
seldom evir suffer from anything, if
wo go and put something on them
they will come right back at us and
make it up right off of us country
people, just as the oil trusts, etc.
Why if you hit thorn a little what do
they do, Just raise the price of oil
a tittle and make you and me and ev
erybody else pay f?r tho hit, and all
corporations and trusts are Just the
No, Mr. Editor, wo do not need any
