Scientists now say that the sun is
steadily losing its heat. They are

the dead of winter.
Farmers all over tin; State are hold

their cotton for a better price and to
reduce the acreage this year at least
l25 per cent.
The com and pork production of
South Carolina this year should he

The action of Postmaster General

Just suppose a Democratic presi
dent had been elected! Every Ko
puhlican paper in the land would be
proclaiming that the slump in stocks
and in the price of cotton wps due to
a Democratic triumph.
An ezohango remarks that 3,000,000
American citizens failed to do their
duty and vote in the last presidential
election. And just about 3,000,000
more failed to do their duty and vote
the right way when they did vote.

The Mcwberry Observer very truly
remarks that with an increase in sales
of one hundred and seventy thousand
dollars in one year, the dispensary
doesn't look quite so much like a "step

Ex-Judge Joshua II. Hudson was
unanimously chosen to succeed and
fill the unexpircd term of Senator
MoCall, of Marlboro County, as State
Senator. A better choice could not
have been made, since Judge Iludpon
is eminently qualified to fill any posi
tion in the gift of the people.
Next Wednesday, 25th in s t., has
been set as the day for the second in
auguration of Governor D. C. Iley
ward. A legislative oommitteo has
been appointed by the Senate and
House to confer with the Governor
and arrange the programme of ad
dressee. The inauguration will as
usual take place on the capital steps
and an nddrcsn will be made by the
The State Board of Canvassers has
dismissed the appeal from Kdgefield
county in the matter of the vote tor
the new oounty of Calhoun. The
eleotion was overwhelmingly carried
in favor of establishing the new
county, but irregularities were charg
ed and an appeal was carried to the
State Board to deoide the disputed
question. Other proteste will prob
ably ha made. h?t ftOTH the pt-onnnt
outlook it seems that the new oounty
will eventually win.
Col. Alfred Aldrich, of Barnwell,
writing about his system of planting
two rows of ootton and two of oorn,
known far and wide now as the Aid
rich system, ?ayo: "If your farmers
would adopt it they would all beoome
independent and prosperous. The
farmer who makoB all that he con
eumes is in better shape with 6o cot
ton than he who buys on credit to
operato his farm and sells his ootton
at 10c per pound. The firBt named
can oarry on his business probably
with Go ootton while the last named is
forced to suspend."
The burning of ootton in order to
bring the price up is as fooiish as a
thing oan be, and we are glad to note
that the movement to do this foolish
thing has made no headway in tho
South. A few bales have been burn
ed and the men who did so havo gain
ed a little notoriety, but the move
ment stopped right there. The State
of Texas has a very wise law on this
subject, whioh forbids a man, under a
heavy penalty, to burn any growing
orop or harvested orop. The Texans
are protected against any suoh foolish
ishness by the strong arm of tho law.
Governor Heyward has made the
positive announcement that he will
retire from politics at the expiration
of his second term. There has been
-much speculation politically as to
his future, a general* opinion being
that he would oppose Senator Tillman
for the Senate next rear. Mr. Hey*
ward has, in the first two years of
Iiis publio servtee, made as unusually
good record, and it is a matter of re
gret that a/ man of his strong person
r?lity and honeety should go back to
privato life. Two things in particu
lar have made bis ? administration
worthy of note, his strong stand for
Jaw and order and his advocacy of
better educational provision for tho
children of tho' Stat?."

a movement was started to raise funds
for the establishment of a fitting me

the forerunner of many others of a

OUK COLUMBIA LETTER.
Columbia. January 1*;. 1903.
The usual rush of l)ilU bus marked
the lir*t week of the Genera! Assem
bly, nearly two hundred measures hav
ing been introduced the first tour du>s.
The two houses have done little solar ,
an appearances go, but the committees |
have been named and are getting down
to work. Measures cannot be acted on
until they have been considered by
committees and in reality there is
nothing much that can be done until
tho committees begin to report. In
the Senate tho composition of the
committees is determined by the Sen
ate itself and in the House the speaker
makes the assignments. Nearly al
ways the iuiu of a biii depends on the
report which the committee having it
in charge w ill make.
The two Houses met in joint session
Friday to canvass the election ret urns,
declaring the Slate ollicers elected.
The date of the inauguration w ill prob
ably be net for the S3th, as that seems
to Auit bent. Railroad Commissioner
John II. Karle is the only new oflicer to
be sworn in and he has already taken
the oath and is performing the duties
ol t he otlice.
Among the many bills introduced or
prepared are measures of all sorts and
varieties. .Senator Brie? has present
ed the original "Brice bill" which was
amended and then passed at the last
action. This bill would permit every
county to vote upon the establish men t
or the closing of a dispensary without
the sp?cial tux imposed by the law now
in force nud under which Cherokee
voted out the dispensary last Hinunter.
In his message tho Governor took
strong ground against the original
Brice bill, nrguing for the justice of
the. special tux. Tho advocates of the
bill have claimed a majority for it and
Gov.Hey ward's argument and inliuence
may not be sufficient to defeat it, but
thestrong influence of the dispensary
:tself is back of him in this particular
Senator liaysor has introduced a bill
to change the management of the dis
pensary on the lines recommended by
the Governor in his message, except
that the bill provides for the appoint
ment of the State Hoard of Control by
the Governor, tho Board now being
elected by the Legislature. In sub
stance, the proposed change means
thai purchases would be made by the
Commissioner instead of b> the Board
as at present, and that the prices paid
shall be made public; purchases are to
be made on bids advertised for and the i
Commissioner is to buy only on orders I
from tho county dispensers, thus pre
venting on accumulation of stock. The
County Boards are to be appointed by
the State Board, two to bo nominated
by the county delegation and the third
by tho mayor or intendant of the town
in which the dispensary is established.
The State Board is to havo supervision
over the county dispensaries and ench
member is to receive a salary of $1,.">00
a year instead of $400 as at present.
Tho new bills range in variety from
a concurrent resolution looking to the
repeal of the Uth and 15th amend
ments to changing the name of Bull
Pond school house to Bull Pond club.
There are several amendments pro
posed to the constitution, most of them
seeking to conform conditions to the
system of biennial sessions. There are.
six bills on tho subject of marriage
licenses; there is the bill to provide for
oil inspection; to establish au experi
ment station; to provide for compul
sory education; eight bills already re
lating to the dispensary; several re
lating to the lien Jaw and the Bale of
cotton seed; several to change the sys
tem of drawing juries; ono to regulate
the speed of automobiles; one to make
"cussing" a misdemeanor; several
seeking to safeguard the primary from
fraud and to punioh bribery; bills re
lating to the fish and oyster industry;
to have all legal ex?cutions within the
walls of the penitentiary.
These are only a few of the products
of the first week. They show the
multiplicity of subjects with which
the Legislative mind concerna itself.
Many of the bills are the fulfillment of
campaign pledges, and others are the
result of personal solicitation on the
part of constituents. A considerable
nnmber of them will bo reported un
favorably by the committees and thus
meet an early death, while others will
languish for want of proper advooaoy
and be left on the calendar at the sea
sion'a end. The dispensary and com
pnlsory edncation bills and measures
of that sort will consume the greater
portion of the time, and towards the
close the appropriations will eclipse
everything else in interest.
No date for the elections has yet
been set, although there are one or two
resolution?? on tho subject before the
two houses. J. H.
