A tag for the permanent Improvement of the public roads differs rr?m other tax in that the other tax Is levied for current expenses and ha? to be levied from year to year.and ls gone. The' tax paid for permanent road work' ls an investment that will pay dlvl-' den?'? ?very year and larger dividends thai uioney put tn bank stock or cot-' ton mill stock, or in sny other enter prise. Kvery county tn Sont h Carolina wrtte? enough money every ten years to build permanent roads in the coun ty and at the end ot the ten year period the roads are no better iban they were ten years before. In this day tb. county that does not build roads ls going to fall behind in the constructive advancement of the age. To levy.a sufficient tax in one year to build roads would be burdensome. The only sensible pisa is to issue bonds and build the roads and thus spread the payment of the bonds over a number of years and the burden falls lightly on all. There are' those who will put up the plea that they do net want to saddle a debt on their? children. There is co better O? greater legacy you could leave your children than ? debt for money'honestly and properly : spent and invested' In, the permanent '.building .of good roads'and if you leave them the roads they will rise up and bless your name and the windora you displayed. *> There Is ?et a man In any county in this Stat? who today would not willingly pay a tux for roads lt a former generation had left him the roads. I believe If you demonstrate, that Is as far as human agency can demon strate, that If the money ls put up < the roads will be built, every man tn every county In Sooth Carolins would vote to Issn? bonds for permanent road work.
