The political pot of Pickens county is beginning to simmer around the edges just a little, but it is quite too early yet for it to boil. The fact that each officer elec ted in the next election will hold office for four years will make each office worth striving for, and present indications are that there will be nore than one can didate for each office, something that has not happened in Pick ens county in eight or ten years. There is no doubt but that the people will have a large number of good men from which to pick their officers. At the close of the last cam paign Bennett Powers announc ed that he would again make the race for treasurer, but we haven't heard anything from Bennett in some time. Treas urer Stewart will likely ask for re-election on his record. Henry Townes states positive ly that he will be in the race for auditor again next year. Auditor Christopher will prob ably rive the people a chance to say whether they want him to serve them or not. We have heard several names mentioned as probable candi dates for sheriff, most promi nent of them being present Sher iff Roark, C. L. Cureton and Wade H. Chastain. If his health will permit, it is more than likely that E. P. Mc Cravey will make the race for clerk of court. 0. S. Stewart, who made the race four years ago, has also been prominently mentioned for this place, and it is not likely that the friends of present clerk A. J. Boggs will permit his name to be left out. 0. R. Doyle has also been men tioned for this place. Of course this nothing like a full lineup. It is also possible that Pickens county may have a man in the race for cOngress. Grand Jury Presentment To His Honor, .Judge R. W. Meminger: We bet' to submit this our final report: We have passed upon all bills haidet l to us by the court. A comlinittee of our body has visited the county h1om01e and their report is very favorable. A coimnittee has also visited the couity .jail and find conditions there very much improved since the recent changes made. We have examined the fireproof vault that was recommended by our body and wish to thank our supervisor for the job,as it seems to be a good one and as near fire proof as could be built. There has been a discrepancy charged to H. W. Farr in his final settlement as treasurer of Pickens county in 1906. We find after careful examination that his four years' administra tion, which has been grouped in one settlement, shows clearly that H. WV. Farr was not short. We therefo recommend that the proper credit be given to bal ance the books. We have had the various of fhces exa mimed by an expert and his report .is very favorable. A copy of his report will be filed with this presentment. We have a report from the rural policemen recently put on, and will say that they have more thaun piaid their salary in fines, etc. T heir reports will also be filed with this presentment We tvish to thank the court and ofhicers for courtesies extend ed to us and beg to be excused.
