that every resource of this vast repub republic

a time when every industry and every

world is being pushed to the highest

discussion of petty political questions
concerning our state. Almost every
voter is loathe to 'turn his attention
even for a moment, from the. battle
fields of Europe and the work that hej
may have in hand, to consider any
state issues, in view of. the burdens
imposed upon us as a party to this

and as the primary now approaches, I
feel it to be the duty of every citizen
to vote for no candidate for legisla legislative

administration of state affairs.
Under the primary system we have
devoted too much attention to men and
too little attention to measures and
questions of policy. It is true that
the ensuing primary promises to en entertain
tertain entertain us with the "pros" and "cons"
of the woman suffrage question, the
"Catts" and "anti-Catts" question
and with debates on the "no-fence

by the scale of the hog. But as we
are in the midst of war and conserva conservation

answer to the German drive on the
western battle-front, to the renewed

Former Governor Goldsborough, re

ways. For some eight or ten years
our citizens have manifested the
greatest interest in hard roads, have
met, "resoluted" and passed various
and sundry laws giving extraordinary
powers and laying heavy taxes to ac accomplish
complish accomplish the building of such roads,
For five or six years public sentiment,
so far as one can judge without a
platform, has been unanimously in
favor of such improvements; and yet
we have no effective statute to pro
tect any such road from demolition
by heavy teams, trucks or i other
means. If a man has a vehicle (with
smooth tires) it may fairly be said
that he is at liberty to destroy all the
hard surfaced roads in the state. He
may take heavy wagons or ten-ton
trucks over such roads practically at
pleasur.e if they have smooth tires,
and even corrugated tires are per
mitted if of a certain width.
This only illustrates that the well
known views of a majority of our
citizens have had no influence on the
legislature, in the absence of a party
platform. A cardinal illustration of
the same point is to be found upon
reference to the recent laws about
state convicts and the prison farm,
and the legislation with respect to
these matters since 1911 has in my
view cost the state over a million
dollars. Relying on the primary sys system

to dictate any measures to them, let
us examine the results: As far ,as
could be judged from the expressions
in the newspapers the advocates of
good roads seem to have joined forces
with those in favor of the abolition of
the convict lease system and public
sentiment seemed to crystalize in
favor of this means of establishing
good roads without increasing taxes.
In view of this general understanding
let us investigate what happened. We
relinquished $250,000 a year that we
were getting from the convicts and
without any public discussion we
launched upon the program of pur
chasing and developing a very large
state orison farm, with the result
that not taking, into account the en
hanced value of labor, we have prob probably
ably probably lost over a million dollars from
the hire of state convicts, and if I un
derstand the treasurer's reports, we
have probably spent over $500,000 in
connection with this farming enter
prise during the last four or five
years, and are probably spending
money on it now at the rate of ever
$1000 a day, taking into account a
reasonable value for the service of
I do not believe that there are a
hundred democrats in Marion county
who would have been in favor of the
abolition of the convict lease system
under these circumstances. The con
victs are not being used on good
roads as we were promised. Taxes
have been greatly augmented, and if
I am to judge of public sentiment, I
will say that any legislator from
Marion county who voted in favor of
this program, knowingly violated the
wishes of his constituents. These are
war times and vital national interests
are pressing us on every hand. I do
not want to bore you or your readers
but I may have more to say to lllus
trate not the need of new laws and
new issues, but the amendment and
the repeal of a lot of existing laws to
the end that we may conserve our
state resources as we are commended
to do in our households.
Yours very truly,

Dunnellon, Mcintosh, Beleview, Ken Ken-drick

splendidly, particularly Mcintosh,
which had a fine boy scout squad.
Next came the colored division, led
by the excellent band from the color colored
ed colored 'school at Beaufort, S. C. Next,
with its guard of honor, was the col
ored people's service flag with 52
stars. The colored people had their
schools and churches represented,
their company of taper bearers and
showed up splendidly.
The,, procession passed down Mam
to Broadway, ? along Broadway to
Magnolia, down Magnolia to the post-
office, across to Main and back to the
square. It was so long 'that as the
front ranks arrived at the reviewing
stand they met the rear files turning
into the public square.
The- exercises on the square were
appropriate and impressive. It is, not
known how many people witnessed
them, but it is conceded that it was
the largest ? crowd ever gathered on
the square. Owing to Mayor Chace's
foresight in having the streets lead
ing to the square roped off, and autoes
excluded, there was more room and
convenience for the people than there
ever had been.
, i The pageant halted and was appro
priately grouped. Uncle Sam and
Miss Columbia mounted their respec-:
tive stands and the former sounded
the call to service with his bugle, to
which the young ladies representing
the Allies responded with their na
"Old Glory" on the flagstaff came
down to meet the great service flag,
which was attached to the cord, and
then- a cheer went up as the two rose
in the air together. The young ladies
guarding the service flag gathered
around its staff and almost jealously
prevented anything from touching
its sacred folds.
The taper brigade came forwara,
pushed their staves into the ground
at the foot of the flagstaff, east of
the stand, and lit the candles. Mean
time Miss Porter and her chorus in
the bandstand sang "Keep the Home

Mr. Lester Lucas superbly voiced

the evening were heard. Mayor Chace
introduced Mr. Case, who talked right
to the point for almost an hour. Mr.
