"Farmers Not Hroko by a JDurnoil
Sigjit," Says Senator Mason.
(Columbia Cor. Charleston News and
Senator Mason, of Oconeo, sprung
something of a surprise on the Sen
ato to-day. The point of it was that i
the State of South Carolina and the
people of South Carolina aro not
broke by a "darned" sight. His res
olution is rather striking and unusual
and rends like this:
"Whereas, tho Sonato has had nu
merous resolutions of a distressing
nature presented before it; and,
"Whereas, such resolutions are cal
culated to mislead tho public ns to
our real condition; and,
"Whereas, the State of South Car
olina is undoubtedly hurt by the low
prices of its products, still tho farm
ers and other classes of citizens,while
feeling depressed, are not yet broke.
"Therefore, be it resolved, that no
further resolutions of a depressing
and pessimistic nature be received in
tho Sonate, but that like resolutions
bo forthwith rejected and not consid
Tho Senate had about passed the
resolution hy a viva voe? vote when
Mr. Christensen asked what it was
all about and had the resolution read
a second time, and suggested that it
had better go over. Under the Sen
ate rules one objection carries a res
olution over until the following day,
and the resolution will, therefore, he
considered at a later day.
Senator Johnstone inquired if Sen
ator Mason was a farmer, but the
resolution had gone over, and no dis
cussion was in order.
Senator Mason stated that his
grandfather, his father and he bad
all been farmers, and that thero were
nothing but farmers In his family.
Senator Mason In conversation said
that ho realized that the farmers, In
common with every one else, did not
havo a bed of roses just at this time,
but that they were far from being
"broke," and even if they were
"broke," there was no uso to be pa
rading that fact to tho public. As n
matter of fact, both the Senate and |
the House to-day met to receive new i
bills and to go through the technical
requirement of declaring the official
vote for Governor li. A. Cooper and
Lieut.-Governor Wilson G. Harvey.
There were a bare quorums present
in either branch, as it was already
known that the usual week-end re
cess would be taken to-day. The
House will meet again on Monday
evening and the Senate to-day agreed
to meet at ll o'clock Tuesday.

Editor Keoweo courier:
Tho Oconee delegation readied tho
Capitol o. k. and are feeling line. We
aro stopping at the Colonia Hotel,
and will bo very glad to have any pf
our friends who may bo in Columbia
during the Cession, call on tts. We
will feel somewhat slighted if they
do not. Nothing of much importance
has been done yet. Tho greater part
of tho weok has been taken up in
organizing and making assignments.
d, as your Senator from Oconee
county, must say that I am very
proud of tho consideration given me
on committees. Tho hold-over Sen
ators, as well as the now Senators,
have boon very nice to me.
A bill has been introduced in both
Houses to extend the time for pay
ing c?unty and State taxes until the
1st of April. Think 1 will support
this bill in the hope that it will be
a relief to the distressed conditions
of niy friends in Oconeo and the State
Senator Alan Johnstone, of New
berry county, has Introduced a bill
to regulate cotton acreage in South
Carolina, and I, as your Senator from
Oconee, will support tho bill. In
other words, I am in favor of any
legislation that may come that points
to tho agricultural interest of oui
State at large, i want to say Jusl
here that we are being told by some
professional members of the Gen
eral Assembly that certain bills thal
point to the relief of the farmers wil!
not be eonstitutional. Then we ought
to change the Constitution and make
provisions in the Constitution foi
some good laws that will be constl
tutional. I am not down hore to tesl
hore to represent tho best intoreSU
of South Carolina in my humble way
and especially Oconee county.
I will bo very glad to have anj
suggestions from any one in Oconet
county nlong legislativo linos.
Hoping to be of some service tc
all, I am, as ever, Your servant,

The announcemnt of the Sweeney
Auto School of Kansas City, of the
enrollment of Messrs. Sims and Hunt
interests me-not that I am in any
way connected with the yoting gentle
men, but as an old student and grad
uate of the K. A. S., I am always
glad to hear of South Carolina boys
A man who knows moro about au
tomobiles and tractors than E. J.
Sweeney, prosldont of this great In
stitution, has got to bo born and
reared. If a man doesn't get what
he goes after when ho entors this
school lt Is because he doesn't try.
I would not exchange my diploma
for the price it cost me.
The general garage and repair man
"kicks" on going to school to learn
the business. There would be more
satisfied customers if all the repair
men were Sweeney graduates, for ho
would not have to pay the supposed
to-be mechanic for four or five hours'
work trying to Hud out what is the
matter-if ho happens to stagger
011 the trouble at all.
Mr. Sweeney doesn't mess you up
with a bunch of books. Ho has every
thing necessary to teach the busi
ness. Ile doesn't only teach ono how
to do a job, but tolls and proves to
him why lt should ho done that way
Wishing these young gontlemon
success and that I will have tho plea
sure of/meeting them some time in
the future, I nm, very truly, (a reg
