The island of Crete, at present
tho object of so much interest, is
situated in the Mediterranean sea,
south of Greece. It is about 160
miles in length, and nowhere ex

fruits abound. The island also pro
duces cotton, tobacco, olive oil,
wine, silk. St. Paul visited Crete
and planted a church there, hence

were killed on a railroad crossing
near Sherman Heights, a suburb
of Chattanooga, last week. Tbe
accident occurred where the
Georgia division of the Southern
Railroad crosses Harrison avenue.
The mother and nine children,
were in the wagon. The mother
and six of the children were killed
instantly and the other three
children are dangerously hurt.
They lived eight miles out in the
country and were coming to Chat

Congress has passed the anti

It was really pathetic to read
the little speeches of the various
senators in their appeals for the
poor clerks whose salaries had
been reduced by the House in its
short spasm of economy. Of
course, in every instance, there
was a stubborn fight by the
economists," but invariably the
disinterested (?) appeals of the
more generous senators broke
down all opposition and the "r? s

The House on Saturday received
gradnated income, graduated li
cense and insurance tax bills. The
income tax bill provides a tax bill
providing a tax of J per cent on in
comes of $2,500 to $5,009,11-2 per
cent on incomes of $5,000 up to
$7,500, 2 per cent on $7,500 lo
$10.000, and 3 per cent on $15,000
a?d over. Iucorae is defined to
mean gross profits. The income
from bounds exempted J is not in
cluded. The license bill is sweep
ing, covering every conceivable
hade, profession and busines
corporation, such as banks, mills,
factories and railroads. A license
fee of 50 cents is required on each
$10,000of capital stock. The licen
ses run from 50 cents for haa?J
laundries and blacksmiths, to
$500 for circuses and Pullman
companies. Five dollars' license
is exacted from trades and pro
fessions generally from. Doctors,
druggists, lawyers and surgeons
are taxed $5 each, soda water $2,
hucksters $1; newspapers, daily,
weekly $1 on each thousand circu
lation, and so on. The insn ance
license bill provides for a State
license of one-half of 1 per cent
on gross receipts.
The House passed the usury
bill on Friday, making it unlaw
ful to charge more than 7 per cent
interest on money.
Several important bills wore
discussed and continued to the
The House refused to concur in
the Senate's proposed restoration
of the clerks' salaries, or to in
crease the appropriation to the
South Carolina college.
The picture of a South Caroliuan
testifiyiug against his own State
in Congress is one to make angels
weep. We clip the following from
the official report :
Dr. Samposon Pope, independent
candidate for governor, took the
stand. Dr. Pope characterized as
a great fraud the constitutional
convention, and reviewed at length
the circumstances attending it.
Uneasy for fear that the Conserva
tive element of the State would
join the Republicans and forma
just Constitution? he said, the
Democratic leaders, Senator Till
man and others, entred iuteo a
most damnable ageeement. The
scheme to which they . bound
themselves and their followers
provided, among other things; that
no white man should be disfran
chised except for crime ; that the
whites should be insured sup
remacy, and the Constitution
when adopted should not be sub
mitted to the people. He had gone
gone into the courts and endeavor
ed to stop the election of delegates
to the convention, but had been
South Caiolina, he said, was out
uo?i m congress". Waa concerned, it
was admitted to the Union provid
ed that it did not change the Con
stitution of 1898, which was ap
proved by congress. The legisla
tura of the State had broken faith
long ago, and as a matter of fact,
no senator or representative.
Demoorat or Republican, had a
right sit in the national legislature.
Further, when the present Con
stitution was adopted, it was ?uever
submitted to the people for ra
tification, those framing it never
took thc oath and a number of
them held other offices under the
government. jThe provisions of
the Constituiion were violated in
each instantan?e. The result
was that thousands were debarred
from suffage. These were facts
and if the committee would go to
South Carolina and take testimony
or send for persons and papers, it
could easily get at the facts. It
was an important matter and ono
which congress should look into.
Replying to a question by Mr.
Talbert (Dem.) of South Carolina j
as to the part he took in certain
legislation in the State, he said
that it was enacted before ho. be
came a member of the legislature.
He added that the eales had fallen
from his eyes, he was nowa pro
tectiouiet and an outspokeu Re
publican, and he only regretted
thai he had not joined this party
12 yearn ago. He was in it
now to stay and would work to
convert the people of hit? State.
He even hoped to convert his
friend, Mr. Talbert.

The above is a true ana correct
apportionment made in accord-,
ance with the Teachers' Monthly
Reports as are found in this office.
I find many pay warrants drawn
by teachers and no reports at
tached. Each warrant must be
accompanied by a full and com
plete report for each month. I also
urge that the trustees make a com
plete annual report to this office
on or before the first day of August
of each year, according to Section
12 of the School Law, for without
such reports it is impossible for
me to make a true and correct ap
portionment. I again urge that
each and every trustee appointed j
by the county board of education
com9 to this office in person, as I
wish his signature, and at the
same ti ra* get the apportionments,

I find that several of the school
districts during the fiscal year just

portionment, while others have un
