A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.
At tho approaching general election
tho voters of tho on tiro .Stato will be
called upon to grant permission to tho
cities of Columbia, Hock Hill, Charles
ton, Georgetown and Florence to
increase their bonded indebtedness
far in excess of tito constitutional
limit of eight per cont of tho taxa
blo property of said municipalities,
respectively, for the purposo of erecting
water-works plants, sewerage systems,
gas and elocttic light plants. The pro
posed amendment is as follows:
"Add to the end of Section 7, Ai tide
VIII, this proviso: 'Provided, That the
limitation imposed by this Section and
by Section ?">, Article IV, of this Constitu
tion shall not apply to bonded indebted
ness incurred hy the cities of Columbia,
Hock Hill, Charleston and Florence,
whero tho proceeds of said bonds are
applied solely for tho purchase, estab
lishment, maintenance or increase of
water-works plants, sewerage systems;
and by the city of Georgetown, when tho
pioceeds of said bonds are applied solely
for the purchase, establishment, main
tenance of water-works plant, sewer
age system, gas and electric light
plants, whero the entire revenue
arising from tho operation of such
plants or systems shall bo devoted
solely and exclusively to tho mainten
ance and operation of the same, ami
where tho question of incurring such in
debtedness is submitted to tho freehold
ers and qualified voters of such munici
pality, as provided in the Constitution,
upon the question of other bonded in
lu a circular letter addressed to the
pross of the State the city council of
Columbia say :
"This proposed amendment to tho Con
stitution is of vital importance to the
city of Columbia, whose population
comes from almost oveiy county in the
State. OrOwlng with a rapidity that is
without parallel in the statistics of the
State, her teeming streets and busy marts
are the wonder and admiration of all.
The Stale at large shares with her citi
zens in the pride engendered by tho
growth and prom iso of tho capital of
South Carolina. There aro but two
things vitally essential to the encourage
ment and fostering of this wonderful
growth-a sewerage system and a water
works plant, which togothev, it is esti
mated, will cost our munie, .?lily a half
"To raise that sum, so ne. .sary to the
well-being of all the poop . we must
appeal to tho intelligent vo ors of this
entire State to vote solidly for this pro
posed atnondmont, for the reason that
Columbia is already encumbered with a
dobl far in excess of the constitutional
debt-limit. Hence, upon failure to cany
the proposed amendment at the poll, our
only recourse to preserve ami foster the
magnificent onward march of our city
will bo to place these systems in the
hands of private parties, and thal course
is condemned by every economic author
?ty, based upon the closest study ol' le
"H?moniboi thal not only does the
Legislature meet here annually, bul that
the Hospital for tho Insane is here, be
sides the state penitentiary, as well ns
other Stato institutions, all of which will
be directly bondi ted by these proposed
Should this proposed amendment be
adopted, it would then bo left to the
option of the "freeholders and qualified
voters" of each of the live cities named
to say for themselves, in an election held
for that purpose, whether bonds should
bo issued for water, sewerage and lights.
The city councils of Columbia and
Charleston have officially approved tho
amendment, and earnestly urge tho
voters of the Stale to vote in the alliinia
live. Wo have not seen any statements
from the eilycoiiiu ils of Hock Hill, flor
ence and Georgetown, bul ii maj be pre
sumed they a:e in favor of it.
As a general rule we are opposed to
the large increase of the bonded indebt
edness of municipalities, but there may
be occasional exceptions to this rule, lt
seems that the presold condition of the
city of Columbia furnishes ono of those
exceptions, and if the freeholders anti
qualified electors in thal city want to
vote this heavy tax upon themselves, as
they intimate, for the bonolil of tho poo
plo of the whole State as well as them
selves, wo suppose thc '"whole people"
should not object to receiving the bless
bigs, lind at the same time grant their
broth ron in the Capital City tho satisfac
tion of experiencing that it is more
blessed to give than to receive. Another
reason, and a cogent one, is tho fact thal
the State institutions are located in
Columbia, and their sanitary condition
would be much improved by pure water
and edici?n! sewerage.
LAT lit. since the above was Written
and put in type we have received a circu
lar letter, signed by thc mayors of < oluin
bia, Hock 11 ill, Georgetown, Florence and
Charleston, addressed to ibo voters of
the State, urging the adoption of the
above amendment. H concludes:

The Herald says of its forecast:
"Tho data upon which it is based have
been collected with more than usual care.
Men of experience in gauging public sen
timent on political questions have been
stationed for weeks in so-called doubtful
States, where both parties have been
making great offorts. Those men have
done their work absolutely without bias,

cotton in the counties in which serious
damage resulted from tho storm was np*
proximately 1,300,000acres, with a prom

010,000billes. The reduction of thooropis
ostimated at about 03,000 bales, or 10.(1
