What Our I .aw Maker* ure Doing at

COI.IMKIA, S. C., Fob. 24.-Special ;
After forty clay'a session, with a few
?lays recreation in Charleston, the
(joneral Assembly adjourned sin? ?lio
on Saturday afternoon. The se dion
lia.s not been sensational nor conspic
uous in any respect, but a good deal
ol' good work lias been doue, and some
good measures, perhaps killed. This
was th?' second session of this (jencrai
Assembly and the members who want
to conic back-except, ot course, the
hold-over Senators-must lace their
beloved constituents on the stump this
Bummer ami defend whatsoever records
they may have. The House is com
posed largely of young men, new to
legislative and political life, ami natu
rally ambitious, and no doubt most nf
tho mein bel.? will be candidates fol' re
VT rm: I.'.VST.
At the last moment almost the anti
trust bill pit safely through, though
somewhat disfigured by tho pugna
cious Senate. This is tho measure in
troduecd by Mr. W. .). .Johnson and is
the only one ut several nu asures of its
character which came in sight of suc
cess. It passed the House late, ami on
Thursday was taken up in the. Senate
without having been referred toa com
mittee-a very unusual thing. Sena
tor Robert Aldrich, ot Barnwell, made
the principal light against it, deliver
ing a carefully prepared speech of sev
eral hours duration in which ho openly
defended trusts and corporations as
beneficial and worthy of encourage;
nicni, citing New Jersey as an example
for South Carolina to follow. It isa
coincidence that Senator Aldrich should
take this staud and that tho most
prominent advocate of legislation and
prosecution in regard to tho trusts is
Attorney General ?. Duncan Bellin
ger, also of Barnwell, for between the
two there is a political antagonism
dating back to before the days of Till
Senator Barnwell, of Charleston, at
torney for the Southern Railway, also
fought the bill, but tho Senate by a
vote of 21 toll?n Thursday night at
cloven o'clock refused to kill it and
then several amendments were adopt
ed. The two most important of these
are one to exempt insurance companies
and another to strikeout the rather
drastic provision on requiring every
corporation through some oflicial to
make allidavit annually as to its com
pliance with the law. An amendment
to exempt farmers* organizations was
Tho author of the. bill and its advo
cates preferred to have tho House
agree to the Senate amendments rather
than run tho risk of having it killed or
further amended in conference, and so
tho amendments were accepted by the
House. Tho hill was originally a close
copy of the celebrated "Hogg law" of
Texas, fanions in tho annals of anti
trust legislation. As it Btnnds it for
bids all sorts of combinations of cor
porations or individuals in restraint of
trade and competition, or for tho pur
pose of controlling prices and the out
put of products, and provides heavy
penalties for violations. Individuals
or corporations responsible for viola
tions are liable to a forfeit of not less
than $200 nor more than $5,000 for
every offence and for every day of such
offence, while corporations violating
the Act shall have their charters re
voked and be forbidden to do business
in this State.
The one other important measure re
garding corporations which has passed
is the bill giving tho Attornoy General
authority to demand evidence neces
sary for inquiring into the altai rs of
corporations and trusts preparatory to
prosecution. This legislation was ask
ed for hy Mr. Bellinger. But the bill
to revoke tho charter of the Virginia
Carolina Chemical Compr.ny wns de
The hostility toward corporations so
appal ont ten years ago does not now
exist in this State. There seems to be
areal friendliness to railroads, espe
cially-perhaps because the railroads
are now conciliatory and suave in their
met hods where they used to bo rather
dictatorial. Tor instance, tho bill to
allow the Southern Railway to consoli
date certain lines-the old South Caro
lina and Georgia and its tributaries
was easily passed, the communities in
terested favoring the measure.
Tl IK Ito Al > LAW.
Another matter which did not get
through until the Inst day, and then
only hy conference agreement, was the
road law. This is a bill framed by a
special committee to supersede the
present statute which is held to bo un
constitutional because it contains spe
cial provisions for each county. As
tinnily ngreed upon the bill fixes tho
ages of citizenship liable to road duty
at from 18 to (?0; the number of ?lays is
eight or more, and the commutation
tax for all counties is one dollar. The
bill is quite lengthy, containing spe
cific provisions for th?; maintenance of
the highways by tho County Commis
THE WINTHROP ITEM.
The appropriation bill had the easi
est time it has had since the Radicals
left the capitol. There was no light
on any important appropriation except
that for Win*hrop College, which the
Ways and Means Committee had fixed
at ?00,000, an increase from $43,500 of
last year. By a vote of tM to 48 tho
House cut the appropriation to S<50,000
but the Senate raised it to $55,000.
I The House refused to accept this and
i th?? iii|t went to c inference committee*.
I a compromise was agreed to and tho
amount fixed nt $52,000, which both
Houses accepted. The pension appro
priation of ?200,000 fixed by tho House
i was adopted by tho Senate by a narrow
i majority of ono vote-17 to 10. As
already stated, tho project-to establish
a soldiers1 homo was abandoned in
view of tlx- large nppropriutiou to pen- j
K?OIIS and thu passage <>l a 1 ? ? 11 requir
ing County Supervisors to caro for in
digeut Con f?d?r?tes at the Veterans' j
Ilium's instead of putting them in the
County Alms Houses.
When we come to consider tho bills I
rejected the number is rather large.
The most prominent ol' these arr-: Tho
child labor bill, tho compulsory educa- i
tion billi the biennial sessions meas
ures ami what has become famous as
the "chicken bill."
The child labor lull passed the Senate
lust session and this timo received
more support in the House than before.
It will no doubt he heard from again.
Tin* compulsory education bill was
introduced in the Senate by Senator
Kaysor, of Orangeburg, until recently
u member of tin; State Hoard of Edu
cation. Its support in thu Senate was
stroll).', hut it did not receive enough
votes to pass.
Tin: biennial sessions hill passed tho
House and was killed in the Senate,
which also rejected tim several hills
presented on this subject by Senator
O ruber, of Colinton.
The "chicken hill' passed both
Houses audits neck was wrung by a
conference committee. The hill sought
to include domestic fowls under the
provisions ol' the general stock law.
Th?! House wanted ii to apply to tur
keys, geese, ducks and guineas and the
Senate wanted to include chickens.
Tin? two Houses could not agree on the
chicken bono of contention and the bill
thus failed of passnge.
The redistricting bill is ono of the
most important bills passed at this
session. It lins already been published
in this correspondence. Tho Congress
men most affected uro Messrs. Elliott
and Lever. Col. Elliott's county, Beau
fort, is taken out of the First and put
in tho Second District. If ho runs in
this District, composed of Aiken.. Ham
berg, Durn well, Beaufort, Ed ge Held,
Saluda and Hampton, he will hnvo to
oppose Attorney-General Bollinger, of
Barnwell, nnd Representativo Croit, of
Aiken, both strongmen. Col. Elliott
has been in Congress almost sixteen
years. Some Charleston man may como
out for Congress in tho First and Sena
tor G ruber, of Colleton, is also a possi
Congressman Lover's county. Lex
ington, is now in the Seventh District
with Bichland, Sumter and Orange
burg. So. far no one is announced to
oppose Mr. Leer, but Senator Bay sor,
of Ornngeburg, will doubtless bo urged
to run, and Sumter may have a candi
dato. No Columbia man is spoken of
as yet nor is any likely to run this year.
STATT, CANDI DATES.
There will bo a general shifting
around of State House officials at tho
next election. Attorney General Bel
linger, as stated, will run for Congress
and his present assistant, Col. U. A.
Gunter, Jr., and Speaker Stevenson
will bo candidates for Attorney Gen
Secretary of State M. R. Cooper is in
bad health, but if he offers for any
oilice it will bo for Governor. His as
sistant, Mr. James T. Gantt, will run
for Secretary of State, as will the Gov
ernor's private secretary, Col. E. H.
Aull. Representative J. Harvey Wil
son, of Sumter, Col. J. Thomas Austin,
a member from Greenville, and Capt.
J. H. Brooks, representative from
Greenwood, are also mentioned.
Comptroller General Derham will be
opposed, it is said, by Senator Sharpe,
of Lexington, and it is possible that
Mr. N. W. Brooker, who made the race
two years ago, will be a candidate
Adjutant and Inspector General J.
W. Floyd will oppose Congressman
Finley, and the present assistant Adju
tant and Inspector General, Col. John
D. Frost, will run for his chiefs place.
Col. Henry T. Thompson, captain of
the famous Darlington Guards and
later Lieutetnot Colonel of the Second
South Carol i ti a in tho wnr with Spain,
ia being urged to run for Adjutant
General, and Col. J. C. Boyd, of Green
ville, commanding the first regiment of
militia, may also bo a candidate, ns
will Raul E. Ayer, of Anderson.
For Railroad Commissioner Wil
born's place the aspirants are too nu
merous to mention, but some of them
are Mr. Wilburn, Senator "Banks"
Caughman, W. Boyd Evans and "Jim"
These are some of the candidates tor
State offices that have cropped out
thus early in the season. Besides there
will be fivo or six for Senator McLau
rin's Beat, as many for Governor and
several for Lieutenant Governor. .Many
of these have been in Columbia during
the session making themselves solid
with the politicians. - But for about
three months there will be a rest from
A matter in which Anderson is deep
ly interested is the securing of a satis

The Speaker in Trouble.
Speaker Stevenson was notified yes
terday that suit for damages had been
instituted against him. Mr. Jno. T.
Duncan, a Columbia attorney, is press
ing the suit. The facts in tho caso are
rather interesting in themselves and
also because of their relation toother
It seems that Represontac.e Ashley
of Anderson brought with him to Co
lumbia a colored roan who had bound
himself to Mr. Ashley for several
months. Tho negro was given laborer's
employment by tho sergeant-nt-arms
of the house. Friday when the House
officials, etc., wero being paid off, Mr.
Ashley asked Speaker Stevenson for
the pay certificate of tho negro.
Not suspecting it would briug on
trouble, Mr. Stevenson pnssed the cer
tificate over to Mr. Ashley, for the
latter enjoyed tho confidence of tho
1 chair. Moreover tho pay certificate
j wan no good until countersigned t>y
I thc negro. Thc latter became angered
at Mr. Ashley and declined to take his
pay from Mr. Ashley, who wanted to
deduct money advanced for expenses.
The porter sought legal advice and tho
speaker is now the defendant in a ?nit
for ?180, the $80 being the negro's pay
certificate, the $100 being for damages.
