The election laut week in Atlanta
indicates that the prohibitionists are
on deck again. They carried the day
in the gale city by a majority of about
216 votes. However, old Joe Brown

it ever gets into^'politics, it will be

home in Indianapolis on last Wednes
day, without. even a premonitory
symptom of the hasty and wholly
unexpected demise. His wife had

a few minutes and when she returned

liter General, providing for a better
item of tax laws lor the State, and
icnssed it until the hour of adjourn
Gen. McCrady, of Charlefiton, has
roduced the most sensible r?solu
n yet offered. It provides for the
pointmont of a committee to con
er and report what steps, il any,
i be taken to limit the number of
i bills introduced in the Gane;ul
sembly. If the General can sue
>d in ascertaining how this can be
ie, and have it done, he will be
idering the State a great service.
Mr. Folk, of Edgefield, has intro
ced the following :

Mr. R. D. Lee, of Sumter-A bill

Col. Folk asked for and obtained
leave of absence for his colleague,
Capt. J. P. Blackwell, to enable him
to attend a reunion of the 9th Ohio
regiment at Zanesville, Ohio, and re
turn to the regiment ita flag cap
tured by Capt. Blackwell during the
war. Col. Folk paid a very pretty
tribute to Captain Blackwell's gal
lantry, when as a mere boy in Vir
ginia he distinguished himself by his
splendid courage. Tbe leave of ab
sence was granted unanimously.
The following letter from General
Capers explains the object of Capt.
Blackwell's visit to Ohio, and is a fit
ting tribute to the services rendered
his Slate on a great occasion :

November 24,1885. j
My Dear Sir-I have agreed to re
turn the flag of the l?7th Oh:o Vol
unteers, captured by our regiment at
Franklin, on the 30th inst. The sur
vivors of the 07th meet at Zinesville,
Ohio, on that day to receive t heir flag,
and I wish you, as one of the parties
immediately concerned in its capture,
to bear it to them in my name and
in behalf of tbe 2-ltb South Carolina
Volunteers. They ??ave sent me the
most cordial invitation, and extended
the same to any representative of the
24th whom I may designate.
It will be impossible for m? to go
to Zanesville, and a* I particularly
wish some one of the regiment to
represent it on sd interesting an oc
casion, I knew of no one more suit
able than yourself, who, with the gal
lant Tillman, Anlerson, Walls, J. E.
0. Carpenter, and others, took the
colors of the Ohioans from the. hands
of their flagman. If it is necessary
for this purpose that you should ob
tain a leave of absence for a few days
from the sessions of the Legislature,
I am sure that honorable body will
readily accord it to you especially as
you go to do honor to South Caro
lina on the soil cf Ohio. Telegraph
me your consent. Most truly yours,

The New Tux Ulli Killed.
The tax bill was taken up but its
consideration had only been resumed
for a few minutes when Senator Kirie,
of Sumter, moved to strike out ita en
acting clause. Ile maintained that it
was inquisitorial, that ita provisions
seemed designed to reflect upou the
honesty of the taxpayers, that it was
complicated and did not simplify ex
isting laws, and that it was unneces
sary in a State which paid OS per
cent, of its taxes. In order to save
several days of useless consideration,
he made the motion to kill at this

characteristics of the bill which were
objected to by the Senator from Sum

Senator Smythe said that tho bill
vas no child ol his. He objected to
ts provisions and if they were not
?hanged would vote against the bill
>n its final reading. He did not like
lome features which had been termed
inquisitorial." But there were o'her
eatures which commended themselves
o his judgment and which he should
ike to see adopted. He thought that
t would be unfair to the framers of
he bill, who had done their work
rery carefully, and unwise for various
easons to kill the bill before tho
ienators had had time to examine it
nd improve it.
Senator Earle said that he had
lade the mo'ion to nave time ami be
ieving that the question might as
rel I be settled now. But in view of
he desire of certain Seuatora to ex
mine the bill more carefully he with
rew his motion.
The consideration of the bill had,
owever, hardly been resumed when
enator Earle, at the request cf sev
rai Senators, renewed his motion to
ill. There was no further debate,
he opposition to the measure had
Ren carefully organized and wa*
mfident of its strength. The vote
as as follows :

Senator Earle moved to reconsider

d the bill was. placed beyond re
Three rannes apparently contributed
this result : First, the indisposition
non legal members to go into the
idy ol euch a huge bill ; second,
e feelings that the bili was too " in
ieitorial" to suit the people, and
ird, OS per cent, of tax collections
th the deduction therefrom : "Let
ill enough alone."
Mr. Tarrant, of Orar.gebnrg, a bill
. the infliction of corporal punish
mt for certain misdemeanors.
The bills to create County Courts

tgistrates in place of trial justices
re also reported unfavorably, and

that the object of the meeting was to
seek a reduction of the expenses of
the Government by cutting down un

by uniting the economical membeis

Spec ches ou the necessity and pos
sibility of rftrenebment were made
by Col Rocker and Senator Moore of
Anderdon, Mr. Ready of Edgefield,
Senator Moody of Marion, Mr. Scud
day of Anderson, and others.
?senator Black, of York, introduced
a resolution which was adopted, that
the Chair with the assistance of a
committee of five, appoint a commit
tee to investigate certain branches of
State expenditure and report upon
the reduction in salaries, ?c., which
might ba necessary. The committees
announced were: On Penitentiary and
caual, Representative Massey, chair
man, Senator Moore of Anderson,
and Representative Gibson ; on de
partment of agriculture, phosphate
royalty and privilege tax, Represen
tative Pope, chairman, Representa
tives Mciver and Tux ; on salaries of

of the Asylum, Senator Black, chair
man, and Representatives Ready and
Davie ; on salary and management
of the office of railroad commissioners,
Senator Sligh, chairman, Representa

When the announcement of the
committees war, made several members
took occasion to say that while they
were in favor of economy, and would
work and vote for economy, they
would not be bound by any caucus
decision. Some of the movers of the
plan explained that the decisions of
the caucus were not to be binding o?
individuals who objected to them.
What they sought was unity of judg
ment aud unity of vote. They want
ed to get information on expenditures,
and discuss retrenchment in the caucus.
At 9:30 the caucas adjourned, to
meet, again next Weduesday night at
8 o'clock, when the reports of the
committees are expected.
