ltcciprocity with Cuba is like re
ciprocity with every other country.
It means a huge benefit to the Ameri
can farmer and a slight injury to one
or another of the great American
trusts. And since the trusts are hav
ing the say now, the farmer will have
to take out his share of the benefits
of protection in waiting.
The busy springtime will soon bi
here, with so much to be done and
so little time in which to do it, ag
gravated this year by the difficulty in
securing competent help on thc farm.
It has come to this-that wherever
the horse and thc machine can be
made to do the work of thc man it
must be done, or fewer acres must be
The Emperor of Germany is deter
mined to keep on the best terms with
Uncle Sam by his several compliments
in tho past few months, (?erman re
gard for American doctrine in dealing
with foreign powers, as well as the
kaiser's attentions to Miss Uoosovelt,
followed by Prince Henry's coming
visit to Washington, certainly point
to good feeling.
It will cost tho government $170,
000 for common garden eccds and
$28,000 for clerical help to scatter
them among thc people who have no
usc on earth for them. These seeds,
though, undoubtedly have quito an
influence politically in determining
the fate of many a congressman, and
thus is explained why so many old
seeds get places in congress.
The latest indictment against the
trusts is brought by a New York
divine, who declares) that they aro re
sponsible for the decrease in tha num
ber cf marriages in this country, since
they have increased the cost of living
so as to make it impossible for the
average young man working on a sal
ary to support a wife and family.

It is said .hat the old-time tradi
tion that v, roon must wait for a mat
rimonial proposal is to be relegated to
the attic. A western movement by a
St. Louis elergymau favors proposal
by women. Many women support
themselves and a husband, and if a
woman is able to support a husband,
she should certainly have something
to say, in faot everything to say, in
the selection of one.
And now the scientists tell us th Lt
the fine flavor of buttor is not deri

corn, but from bugs-bacteria-of
refined and pedigreed sort, and that by
inoculating the milk or cream with
starter containing these bacteria a fine
flavor can be produoed in any cream
not spoiled. The secret of successful
butter making is hereafter to lie in
getting the right sort of starter.
Great is science.
There are a score of men in Amer
ica whose fortunes exeeed those of
monarchs of one hundred years ago.
But instead of using their vast wealth
in selfish pleasure and extravagant
pagentry, many of them are using it
for the promotion of industries
through which thousands live with
comforts unknown to kings of the
past century, while a fev, of whom
Mr. Carnegie is most conspicuous,

Men will always seek to obtain their
sustenance in the easiest possible
way, and thus it comes that where
climatic conditions require effort for
man to make a living he thereby be
comes a better type of man. Work
thus becomes the world's greatest
blessing, and in all climates where
man is thus stimulated to effort to
live there will be found the men
mighty with the 3Word, great in story,
art and song, inventive genius and
moral as well as physical and intellec
tual development. So don't whine
and fret, young man, that your lot is
cast where you have to work in order
to live. It may not pay the world to

The bill relating to the matter of
most immediate and practical import
ance lins passed both Houses mid as
soon as several minor amendments ure
agreed upon AV i 11 bc ready for ratifica
tion mid enrollment as au Act. This
is "the jury Law," presented for tho
purpose of remedying the recent con
fusion caused by the decision that ow

thc Acts regarding drawing of jurors
for lin- various counties. The bill now
about to become law is general, apply
ing a uniform system to all counties,
and UN ii goes into eifert at once il will
enable the Courts to proceed with the
business which bas been accumulating
for several months, in some counties
amounting to a good deal.

Another measure of great technical
importance is the ratification of thc
rode, embracing thc whole statute law
of the commonwealth. The codifica
tion of the statutes for this period was
begun by Commissioner Breazoale and
completed by bis successor, Commis
sioner Townsend, ami t he. I louse Judi
ciary Committee reported a bill ratify
ing the report of the latter. There
weie sume technical objection's on th?
ground that the ('(institution's pro
visions required the lileay.eale code's
adoption, but it was held that tho
Towscnd code is merely an amended
form ot the other, and alter considera
ble dehnto the committee's bfll was ac
cepted. It is of much importance but
very brief, as follows:

declared to bu the "Code of Laws of
South Carolina, 1902;" and said code is
hereby declared lo tie ti;? only general
statutory law of the State on the 1-tth
day of January, 1002.
Of all the matters presented to the
Legislature three might be named as
having attracted the greatest public
attention anti discussion, viz: Redis
tricting, Child Labor and the Soldiers'
Home. None of these bas been finally
A redistricting bill bas passed the
House, as previously reported, but it
has not yet been considered in the Sen
ate, and even if "the McGowan bill"
passes tho upper House it i.-, suro to be
liberally amended in that budy. The
strongest effort is being made to change
the bill's arrangement of the Urst?nd
sen md congressional districts. Char
leston influences in the House succeed
ed in having Beaufort taken ont of the
iirst district and put into the second,
which is thereby made a long string of
counties along tho Savannah River.
The second district people don't like
this, neither do Congressman Elliott's
friends, as the object plainly is to take
Col. Elliott, whose residence is in
Beaufort, out of the Charleston dis
trict. Otherwise the bill is pretty gen
erally satisfactory, but this provision
is sure to be lought over. The bill is
a special order in the Senate to-mor
The House committee on commerce
mid manufactures has made a favora
ble report on the child labor bill that
passed the Senate last year but it bas
not yet been voted on.
Tho soldiers' home proposition will
probably be lost in tho shuttle. The
House has not only appropriated $200,
000 to Confederate pensions, but lins
panned a bill declaring that, it shall be
unlawful to commit any indigent ex
Confederate soldier to any poor house
or almshouse, but the county board? of
commissioners shall, in their discretion,
give county aid to said Veterans, at
the homes of such soldiers or of some
relative or friend. The bill declares
further thrft no ex-Confederate soldier
shall be disfranchised because of his
having received such nid. A similar
bill has passed the Senate, and ns it is
intended to relieve the conditions
which gave rise to tho agitation for a
soldiers' home the latter proposition is
apt to be rejected, especially since such
a liberal appropriation for pensiona has
been made by the House. The $200,

gauntlet of the less lib?rai and more
Another pension bill of interest is
that, introduced by Senator Manning
providing for a county pension com
missioner. It has passed the Senate.
The commissioner, under the bill, shall
be elected by the county pension board,
of which he shall be a member, and he
shall be at tho Auditor's office every
Saturday in the month of January to
meet pension applicants and to receive
their applications. He shall report
back to the board the first Monday in
February. For his services he ?nail
receive $2 per day. This bill relieves
the county board from constant meet

In the Senate there was a long and
animated debato on Senator Raysors1
compulsory education bill, and while
it wns rejected, tho vote-18 to 16
shows a growing sentiment in favor of
the proposition which is apt to come
up again. If a child labor bill is passed
the cotton mill men will ask for com
pulsory education on the ground that
without such a law the operatives'
children will be idle and troublesome.

the salaries of county oflleers, and it is

hill providing for a submission to the
people ol a vote on tin: question of
biennial sessions ol' the Legislature
with pay limited to 50 days. The de

Tko house committee on commerce
an<l manu factures has made a favora
ble report on the Marshall child bill,
which passed the Senate last year,
some amendments as to ago being
annie. The committee proposes that
Section 1 of the bill shall read: "That
from and after the 1st ol' May, 1?102, mi
child under age of lo years shall la:
employed in any textile establishment
of this* State, an<l that from and after
the 1st of May, 1003, no child under the
age of ll shall be employed in nay tex
tile establishment of tho State; and
that after May 1st, PJ03, no child under
the age of 11 shall be permitted to work
after s o'clock at night, until after (* in
the morning in any textile manufactory
of this State.
The Senate committee further
changes the Senate hill so that a child
at ll instead 12 of could work in a mill if
he or she could show a certificate of
having attended school three mouths.
The Senate provided that the child
must be 12 before the certificate was
a dm issi hie, but the House committee
changed the age toll years with tho
three mont lis' certificate.
The prospect for the bill's passage
now seems favorable.
The House lins passed Mr. Kibler's
bill creating the otlice of insurance
commissioner, two changes having been
made in the original bill. The first
provides thnt the commissioner shall
bo elected by the legislature instead of
appointed by the governor, and the
second relates to taxation of insurance
companies. A kindred measure soon
to bo presented provides for the repeal
of the Mauldin act passed a few years
ugo which seeks to prevent combina
tions between insurance companies. A
delegation of insurance men were
heard on M onda v, and they said if this
law be repealed it would result in a
25 per cent, decrease in insurance rates.
