IT WILL PASS.
The Clemson College Scholarships Bill
in the Senate.
IT MEETS WITH GREAT FAVOB,
And Passes Its Second Reading With
oat Very Much Opposition and
With But a Few Slight
Col. D. O. Herbert's House bill to
create beneficiary scholarships in
Clemson College was taken up in the
Senate on Wednesday morning. The
bill produced a debate to some length
and earnestness. Senator Raysor had
an amendment passed substituting
for the 15 years of age limit a clause
leaving it to the usual discretion of
the authorities. He also submitted
an amendment making the examina
tion average 60 instead of 50 per cent.
This was passed. The question of
debate was hinging on the clause
"and preference shall be given those
young men who desire to take the ag
ricultural and mechanical course."
Senator Raysor wished to strike out
the words "and mechanical," main
taing his position by the statement
that Clemson was essentially an insti
tution for the farmers, founded in
their behalf, and supported by the in
come tax. It was instigated at a
farmer's convention in Columbia in
1886, Its name is Clemson Agricultu
Senator Raysor said that when the
privilege tax was given Clemson the
promise was made, that it would be
an agricultural college, but now while
the work of general education is car
ried on well, not enough attention is
paid to the branch for which the
school was founded. Not 10 per cent,
of the students took this course last
year. The trustees admitted that
there would be no use for the bill if it
was not limited to agricultural stu
dents. The engineering, textile and
electrical departments are crowded
now, Clemson's income is between
$160,000 and $140,000 and of this
surr $102,000 was..paid by the privi
lege tax?paid by toe farmers. Thus
this class of students should be given
preference in the scholarships. South
Carolina needs skilled agriculturalists.
Senator J. W. Ragsdale was an op
ponent of this, amendment. He
wished to strike out the entire clause
quoted above, as it means a restric
tion. It is a bribe for boys to take
the agricultral course. The course
is now a tine one and well equipped,
yet it is not popular. If a boy wants
to go into a broader field than the
farm he should not be refused. As to
the privilege tax support, in states
where there is no tax fertilizer costs
just as much. He wanted to see no
restrictions on the scholarships, of
which he was heartily in favoi.
Senator McLeod was in the same
position on the bill as Senator
Raysor. He saw nothing bad in it
and he did see in the amendment the
expression of the growing sentiment
in South Carolina for expert agricul
turists. "Undeveloped agriculture
needs brains mixed with work," said
Sentor McLeod. Technical knowledge
Is necessary to succceess if the Indi
vidual wishes to rise above other far
mers in this work. Though only
about 50 per cent, of Clemson's stu
dents are farmer's sons, yet the farmer
supports the school and should reap
its Ifirst benefits. Senator Hardin,
like Senator Ragsdale, wished to
strike out the clause as he thought it
Senator May field said that in the
past Clemson, though founded for the
study of agriculture, had riot fulfilled
this end as in the other departments,
but that now the trustees recognized
this and it was to this end that the
bill was introduced. He did not know
of a State th*t had no fertilizer tax. If
there was no tax fertilizers would be
lower but ir there were no inspection
the farmers would be Hooded with an
inferior staple. He wanted Senator
Raysnr's nmendmr?nt tO prevail, Sen
ator Ragsdale had not long begun in
reply, when the debate was interrupt
ed by papers from the house. Later
it was postponed until the evening
At the evening session Senator Ray
sor's motion to strike out "and me
chanical" in the Clemson beneficiary
scholarship bill, was renewed after a
motion to postpone consideration and
a motion to table the amendment had
both been defeated. The amendment
was adopted. Senator Johnson wished
to amend the hill so as to include tex
tile students, but this was tabled.
Senator Hardin moved to strike out
the entire clause, his motion being
supported by Senators J. W. Rags
dale, Peurifoy and Johnson, but his
motion was tabled by a vote of 20 to
6i The bill was sent to a third read

young white man about 24 years old
died at Carlisle Tuesday morning, as
the result of being shot on Saturday
night at a negro frolic near Herberts

that he, with some other men, were
tiring their pistols when Eubanks pas
sed, and that he was struck accldent
illy, but it is reported that the two
bad had a difficulty some time ago aud
bad not been friendly since. Lyles
3id not attempt to get away and was
committed to jail.
A Cure for Eczema.
My baby had Eczema so bad that its

Witch Hazel Salve. The Eczema is
cured, the scabs are gone and the lit

healthy, and its hair is growing beauti
fully again. I cannot give too much
praise to DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve.
