Tbc Care of the State's Insane During
the Past Year.
The fellowing is the annual report
?ff the board of regents of the State
Hospita; for the Insane; therein the
".enfctage *pian" for further necessary
&?3dH*g^ is vigorously urged:
To His Excellency M. B. Mcsweeney,
Governor of South Carolina.
Stn OD behalf of the board of re
sents of the State Hospital for the In
sane I i^rewith respectuflly submit to
your' excellency their annual report
for the year ending Dec. 31, 1899, to
gether with the reports of the superin
tended 2nd treasurer. .
The report of the superintendent
shows that there were under treatment
at the <-os-e of the previous year 966 j
patients, of whom 584 were white
males 24\ females 343; and 382 col
ore?!-?ples 183. females 199. There
were Emitted 415 new patients

375 to 5&8.

WJa?y we may well deplore the ex
istence of this ever increasing number
of the mentally afflicted in our midst,
yet we cannot evade the responsibility
placed upon us by our common hu- ,
nani ty as well as by the constitution
of the Srate to provide for them ade
quately. 'The steady growth of the in
stitution in the last 25 years has im
pose?! burdens upon us beyond the ex
pec ta: 3 OL s of our predecessors. The
number of colored insane will in a few
years exceed the white. While the
races -have always occupied sepe rate
brandings or wards yet we cannot but

ration on the present site than now ex
ists w:ii ne deemed necessary.
it has ever been the purpose of the
board a: regents to protect the State
from a]] unnecessary appropriations,
asking only for funds to meet imme
diate needs for both maintenance and
extraordinary expenses, such as new
buildings. Were it in our power we
should much prefer to keep the insti
tution within its present capacity. If
we arc- to judge of the future by the
demands of the past, however, this

-a<>: only consideration for to-day but ;
also provision fer to-morrow. We j
mus: adjust our present plans to meet i
so far as possible, future needs.
lt is the opinion of the regents that
our hospital has now reached a stage
in Us Development that requires such
mort?n, anon? as will provide means
for ? better classification of its pa
tients including isolation of those suf

Henceforward it should be our pur
pose in 'leterming upon building plans
ro arrange separate cottages rather
than add io the already too large cen
tral sira.'tures. That is, the institu
tion should henceforth be developed
upon the "cottage plan" rather than j
by additions to the ''conglomerate" j
building that have been erected in the
Among our present needs the most
urgent ;^re accommodations for con
valescent and quiet white men, for the
excitea class cf white women, and for
the consumptive among our colored
patients: besides provision for sepa
rating ai- epileptics from the insane,
and a noir bakery. Th?s? subjects are
minutely discussed in the superintend- !
en-fs report to which we respectfully ?
refer you. !
In the matter of special legislation
we woikd ask your excellency's .i+tv.n- j
tion to tre better Development of the !
system^of county poor houses and the j

What Congress is Doing From Day to
Seventeenth Day-Senator Hoar, ot
Massachusetts, introduced a resolution
asking the President to furnish the'
Senate with all communications receiv
ed from Aguinaldo or any one repre
senting the Filipinos or any alleged au
thority of the people there and our
replies thereto; the proclamation sent
to the Philippine people and the same
as actually proclaimed by General Otis
if in any way altered, together with in
formation whether such change was
approved, and the President is also
asked to forward without delay all in
formation he has of the forms of gov
ernment, proclamations or conventions
of those islands. Mr. Hoar sought im
mediate consideration, but on objec
tion went over.
Senator Rawling. of Utah, has intro
duced a resolution directing the Phil
ippine committee of the House to re- ]
port on what form of government other ;
than the Spanish, existed in the Philip- !
pines prior to December 10, 1898, and to j
what extent Spain had actual control j
o! the islands. Also whether sovereign
power can be justly and in accordance ;
with international law claimed in the ;
absence of power of control.
Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, offered reso- |
lution calling upon the Secretary of j
War for complete information as to ;
the transport service. It was adopted, j

Nineteenth Day.-A spirited and at
times sensational debate was precipi
tated in the Senate on the Philippine j
question over resolutions of inquiry, j
Mr. Pettigrew, of South Dakota, at
tacked the administration's policy in
the Philippines and also made some !
I startling charges against those who j
! were supporting the administration, j
He declared that a systematic effort
j was being made to prevent accurate in
formation from reaching the people of
! the United States and that it was a
political scheme to further the candi
dacy of Mr. McKinley for re-nomina
j ti on and re-election. Before adjourn
ment, the Senate, after prolonged de
bate, passed the bill conferring powers
upon the directer of the census.
Twentieth Day.-The Senate held a ;
brief session, devoted principally to a !
discussion of the reply of England on
the seizure of American flour. After j
a short executive session the Senate
Twenty-First Dav.-The Senate com
mittee on Privileges and Elections
continued the investigation of charges
against Senator Clark of Montana. M.
L. Hewett, a miner who wa> in Helena :
during the session of the Legislature j
in 1899, said that Charley Clark had j
asked him to see Senator Myers and
offer him $10,000 for his vote for Mr. ;
Clark for Senator. He had according- j
ly taked with with Mr. Myers and tes
tified that that gentleman had told
him after first declining the proposi
tion to say to Clark that if he was dis
posed to do so he could put the $10,000
in the hands of Mr. Whiteside to be
paid to him (Myers) in case he should
vote fer Mr. Clark. Hewett said that
the Senator's son stated that this ar
rangement waa satisfactory and had
afterward told him that the money for
Myers had been given to Whiteside and j
that his vote was assured.
The witness said that he had seen i
the Senator at his home at the Helena j
Hotel a short time after the Whiteside j
exposure and had asked him what he I
proposed to do, when the Senator re
"There is only one thing to do and ?
that is LO make the people bcliev that j
the Daly gang have furni-hed the mon
ey and have put up a conspiracy :
Concluding his testimony Mr. Hew
ett said he had received no pay for his |
services from Mr. Clark and r.o prom
ise of any. He had been interested j
with the Senator in a mining company j
and preferred him to his opponents.
Eighteenth Day.-Miscellaneous bus
iness of minor importance occupied the ;
attention of the House until 10 o'clock
after which an hour was devoted to !
eulogies upon the life and public, ser
vices of the late Representative Green
of Nebraska. Mr. Kitchen, of North '
Carolina was among the speakers. The
House then adjourned. j
Ninteen til Day-But little business of j
importance was done by the House. !
The session was brief.
Twentieth Day.-The House commit- J
tee on inter-state and foreign com
merce ordered a favorable report upon |
the Hepburn bill for the construction
of the Nicaraguan canal. The sesson
of the House occupied just 20 min
Twenty-First Day.-The session of the |
House was of brief duration and noth
ing of interest transpired to break the j
monotony of the proceedings.

So satisfactory has been the test j
in a portion of Carroll County, Md.,
of the '.post-office on wheels" that l
the ?department has decided to ex
tend the system over the whole of j
the county. As has been told, the
idea is that of Edwin Shriver of j
Westminster, Md., it being an appli- j
cation of the raL'soad post-office sys- j
tem. One wagon has been running ;
for some months, and three more |
?ire to be added soon. At ce rta*'u
points these delivery wagons will be
met by smaller conveyances, which ,
will cover the country between the j
most divergent points of the four j
great arteries of the system. Within j
the next few weeks sixtv-three fourth
class post-offices in the county will
be closed, and twenty-five star-route i
contracts will be abrogated. The
compensation of these post-masters
amounts to $5,200 per year, and the j
star-route contractors received $5,100. j
Against this aggregate of $10,300 ;
saved, the new system, as now organ- !
ized, will cost ?1*4,500, so tlxat until !
more post-offices are abolished and j
star-routes wiped ont, the service will j
cost the government $4,200 more than
it is now paying these postmasters j
and star-route contractors. But there
will be more post-offices closed. The j
new service will before the end of the j
year cost far less than is now paid to
postmasters and contractors.

Hands and Limbs Covered with Blisters and
Great Red Blotches. Scratched Until Almost
Wild. Burned Like Fire. Sleep Impossible.
CUTICURA Remedies Bring Speedy Relief
and a Permanent Cure at a Cost of Only $2.
I was a sufferer for eight years from that most distressing of
all diseases, Eczema. I tried some of thc best physicians in the
country, but they did mc little
good. The palms of my hands
v ere covered and would become
inflamed ; little white blisters at
first would appear, then they
would peel off, leaving a red,
smooth surface which would burn
like fire and itch ; well, thea- is
no name for it. On thc inside
of the upper part of both my
limbs great red blotches, not
$h unlike hives, would appen:', and
p as soon as I became warm thc
ff: burning and itching would begin.
WM} Night after night I would lie
ftHi* awake all night and scratch and
?fr almost go wild. I heard of Cl/Tl
cuRA REMEDIES, got them and
gave them a thorough trial, and after a few applications I noticed
the redness and inflammation disappear. Before I had used
one box there was not a sign of Eczema left. I can truthfully
Issert that $2.00 worth of C?TICUR? REMEDIES cured mc.
ere has been no sign of its return anywhere upon my body
sirtS I wrote you I wa? cured, nearly four years ago Hardly a
mollh passes but what I receive a letter or some one calls and
to know how I got cured, if I had Eczema bad, and il
has been permanent, etc., etc. I always take pleasure in
ting them thc best I can
