LEGISLATURE AND FINANCES
?Viii the Franchise Tax Be Sufficient
to Bring the Revenues up to Meet
.From a comprehensive resume of the
Legislature's work last week in Mon
iay's Columbia State we cull the fol
The appropriation bill wa? followed
by the supply bill, which provided
tor an increase in the levy from 5
mills to 5 1-2. The appropriations
this year will be about the same as
'ast year on account of certain in
,'reases, which will make up the
imount set aside last year for the
bampton monument, for the general
?lection expenses and for other ex
:raordinary expenditures which will
aot be duplicated this year,
The total amount bf t?x?bl? prop
?rty in the State last year was $210,
531 ,S54. At ah assessment Of 5 mills
the income to the State ' would be
$1.001,659,27, At 5 i-2 milis the in
come would b? $l,i5?;82542?; T? this
may be added insurance license . fees,
which were $36,000 last year, fees to
secretary of state, which were $14,
DOO last year. This would.make a
total of $1.206,825, which is even more
than the appropriation bill carries.
Last year the comptroller general
turned into the state treasury $61,S12
which had not been used out of the
appropriations. In 1905 probably
$40,000 will be turned back. The es
timated income from the franchise
Lax is $75,000. It is barely possible
that this amount with the estimated
unexpended appropriations would be
sufficient to balance the income and
the expenditures for 1905 without the
'necessity of the additional half mill
which would bring in $105,165.
Theoretically there was a deficit of
580,000 for the year 1904, although
the deficit will be less than half of
that amount as the $20,000 set aside
for the Hampton monument was not
used, and the $20,000 appropriated for
"past' due interest likely to accrue"
was not taken up, this sum being set
aside more to meet emergencies than
to pay any definite claims. There
were other appropriations for last
year which were not entirely taken
up, for the amounts appropriated are
frequently d little more than is actual-,
ly required. This year the income of
the State will be reinforced by the
receipts from the franchise tax. It is
all fruess work as to how much this
will be but if anything like $75,000
will be received, the State ought to
have no deficit at the end of the year.
Among the items of expense last
year not included in the appropriation
bill this year are the following:
South Carolina college, extra ..$ 5,600
Citadel, extra . . 10.000
Cedar Springs, extra. 2,500

Supervisors of Registration .... 6.15C
General ekction expenses .. ..$25,00C
J. M. Baker (Black papers) _ 1,000
Heating plant, governor's man
sion . 1.00C
But these items of saving are off
set by the following new matters in
eluded in the appropriation bill:
Governor's office, special fund to
enforce laws against lynch
ing; if so much be needed..$ 2,50<
Comptroller general, additional
clerk for franchise tax. 1,40(

To this $55,847 must be added $12,
000 for two additional judges, solici
tors and stenographers; $6,000 for thc
State armory and $5,000 for the State
reformatory. These were not includec"
in the bill as it was sent to the sen
ate. These are large items of imus
ual expense, as are the items aggregat
ing $7,500 for steel filing cabinets foi
the State house and $7,000 additional
for the militia; and $2,000 for steno
graphers for supreme court justices.
The appropriations in the bil]
amount to $1,148,000, which must be in
creased by the tiree items Just named
in the foregoing paragraph. In ad
dition to this the legislative appropri
ation bill with a total of $47,000.
The" appropriation bill of this yeai
contains an error in that an item is
inserted for Vie governor to use $5,00C
for repairs on the* State house. That
item was copied out of a former ad
which permitted the governor to make
emergency repairs on the ceiling ol
the State capitol in case any of il
should fall down. The ceiling is therf
yet. There is now a State house com
mission to take charge of such mat
ters and the commission is not work
ing under an appropriation, but has
a loan from the sinking fund cpmmis
sion. Another error in the appropria
tion bill is the omission therefrom ol
ar leni for the pay of the circuit

New York, Special.-As the guest

speech on th? raco problem. He ap
pealed to the North to make its friend

in the South who have recently done
such effective work in leading the cru

The President's Address.
In his second inaugural, in a speech
tvhich will be read as long as the mem
ory of this nation endures, Abraham
Lincoln closed by saying:
"With malice toward none; with
charity for all; with firmness in the
right, as God gives us to see tho right,
let us strive on to finish the work
we are in; * * to do all which may
achieve and cherish a just and lasting
peace among ourselves, and with all
Immediately after his re-election he
had already spoken thus:
"The strife of the election is bul
human nature practically applied to
the facts of the case. What has oc
curred in this case must ever recur in
similar cases. Human nature will not
change. In any future great national
trial, compared with the men of this,
wo shall have as weak and as strong,
as silly and as wise, as bad and as
good. Let us, therefore, study the in

wisdom from, and none of them as

part I have striven and shall strive to
avoid placing any obstacle in the

have not willingly planted a thorn in
any man's bosom. While I am deeply
sensible to the high compliment of
a re-election, and duly grateful, as I
trust, to Almighty God for having di
rected my countrymen to a right con

it adds nothing io my satisfaction that

VICE NEGRO'S ARCH ENEMY.
Laziness and shiftlessness, these, and
above P", vice and criminality of
every kind, are evils more potent for
harm to the black race than all acts
of oppression of white men put to
gether. The colored man who fails to
condemn crime in another colored man,
who fails to co-operate in all lawful
ways to bringing colored criminals to
justice, is the worst enemy of his own
people, as well as an enemy to all the
people. Law-abiding men should, for
the sake of their race, be foremost in
relentless and unceasing warfare
against law-breaking black men. If
the standards of private morality and
industrial efficiency can be raised high
enough among the black race, then its
future on this continent is secure. The
stability and purity of the home is
vital to the welfare of the black race,
as it is to the welfare of every race.
NEIGHBORS CAN HELP MOST.
In the next place, the white man,
who, if ouly he is willing, can help the
colored man more than all other white
men put together, is the white man
Who is his neighbor, North or South.
Each of us must do his whole duty
without flinching, and if that duty is
national it must be '"one in accord
ance with the principles above laid
down. But in endeavoring each to be
his brother's keeper it is wise to re
member that each can normally do
most for the brother who is his im
mediate neighbor. If we are sincere
friends of the negro let each in his
own locality show it by his action
therein, and let us each show it also
by upholding the hands of the white
man, in whatever locality who is striv
ing to do justice to the poor and the
helpless, to be a shield to those whose
need for such a shield is great.
CRUSADE AGAINST LYNCHING.
The heartiest acknowledgements
due to the ministers, the judges ;
law officers, the grand jurors, the pau
lie men and the great daily news
papers in the South, who have recent
ly done such effective work in leading
the crusade against lynching in the
South; and I am glad to say that dur
ing the last three months the returns
as far as they can be gathered, show
a smaller number of lynchings than for
any other two months during,.the last
twenty years. Let us uphold in every
way the hands of the men who have
led in this work, who are striving to do
all their work in this spirit. I am
about to quote from the address of the
Right Reverend Robt.c Strange, bish
op coadjutor of North Carolina, as
given in the Southern Churchman of
October 8, 1904:
MUST MAINTAIN RACE PURITY.
The bishop first enters an emphatic
plea against any social intermingling
of the races: a question which must, of
course, be left to the people of each
community to settle for themselves, as
in such a matter no one community
and indeed no one individual-can dic
tate to any other; always provided that
in each locality men keep in mind the
fact that, there must be no confusing
of civil privileges with social inter
course. Civil law must not regulate so
cial practices. Society, as such, is a law
unto itself, and will always regulate
its own practices and habits. Full
recognition of the fundamental facl
that all. men should stand on an equal
footing, as regards civil privileges, in
no way interferes with recognition of
the further fact that all reflecting
men of both races are united in feeling
that race purity must be maintained.
NATIONAL DESTINY SAFE.
Let us be steadfact for the right; but
let us err on the side of generosity
rather than on the side of vindictive
ness toward those who differ from us
as to the method of attaining tho right,
let uti never forget our duty to help in
uplifting the lowly, to ahleW ifom

act in a spirit of the broadest and
frankest generosity toward our broth
ers all our fellow-countrymen; in a
spirit proceeding not from weakness
but from strength, a spirit which takes
no more account of locality than it
does .of class or of creed; a spirit which
is resolutely bent on seeing that the
Union which Washington founded and
which. Lincoln saved from destruction
shall grow nobler and greater through
out the ages.
I believe in this country with all my
heart and soul. I believe that our peo
ple will in the end rise level to every
need, will in the end triumph ever
every difficulty that rises before them.
I could not have such confident faith in
the destiny of this mighty people if I
had it merely as regards one portion of
that people. Throughout our land
things on the whole have grown better
and not worse, and this is as true of
one part of the country as it is of
another. I believe in the Southerner as
[ believe in the Northerner. I claim the
right to feel pride in his great qualities
and in his great deeds exactly as I feel
pride- in the great qualities and deeds of
every other American. For weal or for

go up or go down together; and I be

that we shall go forward insted of halt

an abiding faith in the generosity, the

PROBLEMS WILL VANISH.
The Southern States face difficult
problems; and so do the Northern
States. Some of the problems are the
same for the entire country. Others
exist in greater intensity in one sec
tion; and yet others exist in greater
intensity in another section. But in the
end they will all be solved; for funda
mantaliy our people are the same
throughout this land; the same in
qualities of heart and brain and hand
which have made this republic what it
is in the great today; which will make
it what it is to be in the infinitely
greater tomorrow. I admire and re
spect and believe in and have faith in
the men and women of the South as
I admire and respect and believe in
and have faith in the men and women
of the North. All of us alike, North
erners and Southerners, Easterners and
Westerners, can best pvove our fealty
to the nation's past by the way in
which we do the nation's work in the
present; for only thus can we be sure
that our children's children shall in

Words of Love\
Do you know a heart that hungers
For a word of love and cheer?
There are many such about us;
It may be that' one ls near.
.Look around you. If you find lt,
Speak the word that's heeded so,
And your own heart may be strengthened
By the help that you bestow.
It may be that some one falters
On the brink of sin and wrong,
And a word from you might save him,
Help to make the tempted strong.
Look about you, O my sister.
What a sin is yours and mine.
If we see that help is needed
And we give no friendly sign.
Never think kind words are wasted.
Bread on waters cast are they,
And it may he 'we shall find them
Coming back to us some day.
Coming back when sadly needed,
In a time of sore distress;
So. my friend, let's give them freely;
Gift and giver God will bless.
