The superv'isor I(ils Ie thait. since the
presentment of the granad ,jury that
!he (11an not 1ut a scrape in my terri
l.ory uill(s ; it he entirely under his
conitriol. I also wish to say that I
wrote our replr) eltattive.S while they
were in Columbia, asking them to in
I roducRe al bill providing that each con
missioner have his own territory, em
ploy his own hands and work his own
roads, and if I did not prose worths
of being a county commissioner a
the close of the year I would resigi
and pay back my salary to th1
county. I made the same statemen
to the g'rand jury on the 28th day o
February, the day before they aske
that I be removed from olice. 1 als
make the same statement to the pul
lie and people of Pickens county i
they will see that I get a square dle
and 1 dlon't have the roadls wvorkedi
twvelve months from now I wvill rt
*'ign and pay back my salary to th
counity if the gr'anld jurly (dont lhav
mec removed before thIen.
If' there had been21 nobody but P'iel

the way of' roadl and1 bridlge work, bu
&Iur papers go to dlifferenlt coun tic
and dlifferenit states andl I don't kno'
what people that don't know mte wvi
think. I guess they wvill think the
I am the sorriest man in the count)
.as 1 have neover known any other ma
atreatedI the wvay I have been. Tb
Greenville Piedmont tried to make
big booger out of it. I wish to stat
right here that there is not a ma
* ~ in the county that has ever rep~orte
a piece of' bad road or a bad bridg
but what I have toldl him to fix it o
get some one0 else and1( 1 wVould pa
them for it.
Now I have not got a wvord( to sa:
againist our grandIL jury. TVhey ar
aill good men. I doubt whether' w~
c'ould get a btetter set of nmen in thl
county' than they'~ are or' not, hut
(In thintk they have donea me ani ini
. justice and1( also to) the eeunty. If'
was to find ai treOe blowni across th
road I doubt wvhethear I could go
anly onle to cut it outt ork not. 'Th
people think that I have na authot
aity to have anything (lone. Nowi
they had recomamended that an1 inve:a
tigation be made andl se2 why I ha
not donte any mior'e, I think the
wvould have struck tihe keynote. No
if I am not doing my dluty,'it's fro
-ignorance andl not f'rom intention.
am readly to bea. tried before til
acourts or anywvh ere people wvant
