The matter of monthly payments to
fonfederate veterans under the Act
permitting county commissioners to
xtend aid to ex-Confederate soldiers,
Who make application for assistance
paupers, was discussed at some
u ngth. The steadily increasing num?
ber of ex-Confedrate paupers, who
are receiving $3 per month, each, is
becoming ? serious problem, as the
flnanolal condition of the county does
not warrant an increase In fixed ex?
penses. Following the discussion B
resolution was adopted that the board
t Itl next meeting revise the list of
ex-Confederate pensioners now grant
?d aid by the county board and drop
from the list of pensioners all who
are not paupers.
Mr. - Edwards, of Cheraw, pre?
sented a request to be placed on the
pension roll of the county as an ex
Confederate soldier. The request was
refused on the ground that he had
not been a cltlsen of Sumter county
for a sufficient length of time to en*
title i,iin to a pension.
A resolution WSJ adopted that
public road be opened from Trinity
IChOO) house to the Lee county dm
and to instruct the county attorney
to take tiie steps necessary to con?
demn and acquire a right of v. ay
