Study Thc Conditions.
Occasionally conics thc report that
some of thc residents ul' tho South un;
contemplating a change of location
and arc seeking a new home in tho
Weat. To all such, just a little re
minder that a study of conditions bc
made and heed given to thc sigus of
Conditions have vasily changed in
the past decade. The rush for govern
ment lands lung since exhausted tho
supply, and thc former cheap farms ol'
thc West have soared lo such a high
figure that they return huta small in
terest upon thc invested capital.
With Illinois and iowa properties sell
ing at ?150 per acre, and Minnesota,
.Dakota and Nebraska acreage reaching
towards thc high figures, there is no
longer an opportunity to secure a de
sirable home except at the cost of
much money and labor.
Thc trend of immigration has been
changed. Tho magnet has been re
versed, aud now thc attraction i.s to
our own low-priced, productive lands,
adapted to all thc special as well as
the general lino of farming. Former
residents of thc great prairie States
arc taking up their homes with us by
thc thoukAnd, and their new blood,
new brain, new brawn and new capital
are cordially and heartily welcomed.
They have a keen appreciation of thc
resources of the South, of the oppor
tunities which it affords, and are rap
idly becoming indentificd with the
section in which tho financial and so
cial conditions are 60 much for the
bettor. They express themselves in
facts, tho figures .n substautiatiou of
There are no batter business oppor
tunities in tho country to-day than
those which embody thc lands and re
sources of thc South. With proper
ties Helling at from $5 to .*2.r> per acre,
there arc opportunities for all to se
cure homes at a minimum of cost, both
in money and labor. So many avenues
arc open to thc agriculturist that a
widely diversified farming can bo car
ried on, and many, not ono linc, can
bc followed to profit and comfort. The
orchard, tho dairy, tho truck interest
thc stock industry, the cereals, thc
cotton plant, the sugar and cano crops
all pay tribute to tho Southern farmer
nod >mako his the best field of labor in
all tho country. Thc splendid con
ditions or comfortable living are com
bined with the favorable opportunities
in practical affairs, and hore, as no
where else, arefound tho pleasantness
of life and the profit of effort.
The development of tho manufactu
ring interest and the wonderful resour
ces with which naturo has so richly
endowed the South is a stimulus to
agricultural prosperity. It gives an un
equalled home market, a demand for
products almost at the farm gate, a
source of inoomo at hand. It is a val
uable ally to tho farmer, one whioh
will enhance the value of his home
whilcenriching his bank account.
The South is growing. It commands
the attention of the financial, the in
dustrial, the agricultural ?factors. It
has rare promiso of splendid growth
and magnificent achievement. It is
well to be a part of it and to partici
pate in its splendid triumphs.
A bili has been introduced in tho
Legislature to extend thc time for thc
payment of taxes without penalty.
There is always just such a bill intro
duced at thc beginning of overy ses
sion, and the taxpayers have begun
to expect it. They probably ought
not to bo censured for wanting all thc
time they can get. Tho majority of
them probably know but litt?" if any
thing about the finances of the State.
Having cast their votes for Represen
tatives whose business it is to look
after the best interests of tho State,
they bother themselves but little
about such matters. This is natural,
and they arc not to blame. It never
occurs to them that some of their
Representatives have always an eye
on future elections and aro prono to
do inexpedient things if satisfied it
pleases their constituency. Here is
the real status of affairs: Tho obliga
tions of tho Stato must be met by taxa
tion. The total assessed property of
the State is known and the levy should
be sufficient to meet appropriations.
The desire to keep taxes low is strong,
because it is an imperitive demand
from all parts of the Stato, and tho
legislative body is inclined to make
the levy too low to meet appropria
tions. This brings a deficit, whioh
must be met by borrowing money,
which adds additional expense from
interest charges. Tho extension of
time for payment of taxes forces tho
Governor and Treasurer to borrow
money and interest piles up. Tho in
come-of the State for 1902 was insuffi
cient to meet its obligations by $300,
00O. This full amount had to bo bor
Sooner or biter all t! sc Obligation?
must hf met and by taxing tho pi upi".
A bili t<> extend time for payment of
taxes may tickle thc people, but they
pay dearly for it in the end. Nothing
could be so unwise as to enact this
???ll for extension >>f time in payment
of taxes into law. lt is against th'1
interests of thc State and the interests

courages supineness audi ndiifcrence to

The Columbia Record says the Gon
zales monument fund is rapid
ly swelling. Considerably over $1,011(1

to whether a .statue shall be erected or
u hospital founded in honor of the
memory of the deceased. Subscrip
tions are being gi\en all over thc Slate,
and wc kopo the citizens of Anderson
will contribute t<? thc fund.
A new grain has been heralded from
the west. Il is called "corn-wheat"
because it has the nature of holli of
those cereals, though it is true wheat.
Its grains are twice as large as thc or
dinary grains of wheat, and it will bc
used for fattening hogs.

OUR COLUMBIA LETTER.
C ?i L-.MIUA, i I.I;. 2, 1!>0:t.
As today ia salesduy and the lawyers
in tho Legislature, whoso name is
legion, all desire to ho at their respect
ivo county Reata neither house met to
day. Tile House ot Representatives
will meet at 8 o'clock to-night and tho
Senate at noon to-morrow.
Tho General Assembly on the winde,
in pretty well ulong with its work for
a first session. Tho Senate has made
particularly good progress in depos
ing ot' Homo ot' tho most important
measures. Not only tho biennial ses
sions bill nud the child labor bill but
tho compulsory education bill is out ot'
thu way. Rut tho House has not touch
ed any of these questions, de-voting its
time so far principally to the road law
and county government matters and
?ocal measures. Roth hcasee devoted
their Saturday sessions to clearing the
calendars of uncontested and local bills.
The compulsory education bill pnas
ed.by the Senate requires the atten
dance at some school of all children
between 8 and 12 years of age for at
least 8 weeks in the year, unless pre
vented by illness or reside more than
3 miles from a school house. The pen
a)ty imposed on parents and guardians
fot non-compliance with this law is to
be a tine of not less than $5 nor more
than $20. This measure provoked
much discussion nnd will elicit still
moro vigorous debate in the House,
with considerable doubt of its passage.
The Senate has passed a bill propos
ed by Senator Stanland prohibiting tho
use of toy pistols, oxcept those using
aper caps, tho measure being inspired
y the numerous accidents, several
fatal, which have resulted from tho
careless handling of these toys.
A bill introduced by Senator Rlako
fixing tho time for payment of tuxes
and the penalties thoreon ha* also
passed tho Sonate. The bill provides
that all State and County taxes and nil
taxes collected when State and County
taxes are collected, shall be due and
payable from the 15th of October to
and including the 3l8t duy of Decem
ber of each and every year, and if such
taxes and assessments ure not paid on
or before said time, a penalty of live
per cent, thereon shall be added by the
county auditor on the county duplicato
and collected by tho county treasurer;
and if said taxes and assessments and
?iennlties are not pnid on or before'thu
list day of March next thereafter, the
said county treasurer shall issue bia
tux execution for tho said taxes and
penalties, against tho defaulting tax
payer, according to tho law.
Mr. Hydride's joint resolution to ex
tend tho time Jar tho payment of taxes
without penalty until March 01, 1903,
has been rend tho second time, but
promises to develop opposition when
it comet, uu Tuesday for a ilnal read
ing. Many senators express themselves
openly that tho people aro expecting
the time tobe extended and its passage
will relieve tho complicated condition
of tho present tax books without in
jury to tho peoplo or tho State.
'1 ho House has given a good deal of
time to the rond law. The general law
now in operation cansos dissatisfac
tion since the conditions in different
sections of tho State uro so different;
tho up-country counties, with whit?
populations, desiring n few days road
duty and a higher commutation tax,
and tho low-country counties, with
negro populations, wanting more days
with a lower tax. Tho constitutional
provision ngainst special legislation
prevents the passage of measures suit
ed to each county, as tho law on this ns
other subjects haa to apply to all the
counties alike. To circumvent this
provision a number of bills have been
proposed, and the constitutionality of
each has been attacked. The bill
which was passed provides that in
stead of "eicht days if so ninny bo
necessary," the law shall read "not less
than three nor moro than eight," to bo
regulated by tho county commissioners,
and in lieu thereof tho commutation
tnx, instead ot being lixed nt $1, "shall
not bo less than $1 nor more than ?3."
There were a number of good speeches
made. One feature of the dobatu wjis
the opposition to taxing boys of 18 to
21 years when they htt'vo no voice in
matters of State.
While several of the best lawyers in
tho House contend that this mensuro
is constitutional, others hold tho oppo
site-view, and so Mr. Wingo and Mr.
DeBruhl have each introduced A reso

The House, for instance, spent an
hour and a halt ono day discussing a
bill to punish stealing J rom tho Held.
One of the most important actions
taken by the House has been the pass
j age. ol' a bili, by Mr. Forde, placing
I ten-year convicts on the county chain
gangs. This is a "good roads ' meas
ure, and its speedy success indicates
the sentiment for improved highways.
Th?'House has also passed a bill to
abolish the olHce ot phosphate com
missioner, devolving the inities upon
the .Statt- geologist. A similar bill was
passed by tin; last Legislature and was
ve toi d by (?uv. Mcsweeney, tho Legis
lature failing to pass it over the veto.
Tho Semite has passed, without any
debate, two of thu most important
measures ot the session tho Marshall
child labor bili ami a biennial session:1,
bills, the latter requiring a two-thirds
vote. It was expected that both these
would pass tho Senate but there was
some surprise that they should slip

TUE TAX SYSTEM.
There has been prepared by a spe

thu executive officers, a bill to remedy
the existing evils in our tax system.
This is perhaps the most important
questiou which will come before the
Legislature this session-requiring
more common sense and iudgmontfor
its proper solution and lesa oratory,
but still it is most important.

The Stick "Swunk."
Editor Intelligencer : Tho article in
your issuo of Inst, week, "Four Minutes
Long," where the attorney convinced
tho jury by nskiug tho foreman to held
his watch four neuntes, while theConrt
and jury looked on "with suppressed
tension,'1 to show that four minutes (tho
limo the train stopped) was long enough
for a spark from un eugine toset fire to
a house and to be under such headway
in thar time as to consume the building,
reminds tho writer of the sbiewd means
employed by the gifted and lamented
Edwards B. M ut ray, in acquitting a ne
gro ot housebreaking and grand larce
ny at Anderson. It was soon after Maj.
Murray began practicing law. A house
at Belton had been broken open in the
night timo and some food stolon. A
negro was ariested and put on trial for
thu offence. Ho was unable to employ
counsel sud tho Court appointed young
Murray to defend the prisoner. Under
tho circumstances his only chance was
to watch thu State's evidence as the
caso progressed. The negro plead "not
guilty" und went to trial. He Lad no
witnesses and did not take the stand
Capt. McDavid, then section master
for thu railroad, was put on the stand
ns the ?tor witness for the State. The
only evidonco or duo to tho burglary
was sonic human tracks leading from
thu house. These Capt. McDavid fol
lowed in tho country, and he cut n stick
with which hu measured tho tracks? j
and this negro's character in the neigh- |
borhood for stealing being known to
the witness, ho lound him, and. apply- j
ing the stick to his foot, it jnst fit. .
Hence his arrefit. Thu Solicitor pro
duced the stick or measure, whioh ho
exhibited to the jury, and, summing up
tin- evidence, said this was conclusive
pron'.*.. It really looked like guilt. Maj.
.1/ur ray asked to see the stick, and ,
while ; he .State's attorney was speak
ing he kept dangling or twirling it in
his hands II I he direction of the pris
oner. About that timo the negro,
smarting under the .Solicitor's argil- j
ment, moved his position in the dock
.and crossed his legs, thus elevating his .
loot, when Maj. Murray sighted Hons
the ends of thu stick to tho prisoner's
foot, and, remembering thu stick was
cut in the spring, and seeing it was all
shriveled up, showing it was cut from
a tender top of a "sou: wood" bush, ho
discovered, ns hu thought, that it wes
a little shorter than tho negro's foot.
This, ho decided at tho moment, he ,
would risk as his defence, aud began
his argument before thu jury. It was
the supreme moment in tho case. Call
ing t ho prisoner to como before the jury
he had him hold un his foot and tried
the stick to it, all thu jury standing
around. To his gratification tho stick
proved to be a little shorter than tho
foot. The tender, rapidly growing
"sour wood" shoot, between tho time it
was cut and thu trial, fiad shriveled
and nin an ked, and the man was acquit
After getting his client oil', Maj. -Mur
ray said to tho negro: "Sam, you aro
now a freo man and it is all over; tell
me if you are guilty of tho burglary."
Sam replied: "Ross, I did took dem
tings, sue du cold chill run down my
back when you put dat stick io my foot,
for it was de same stick Mr. McDavid
tried on me. Doss, dat sour wood stick
