THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
Columbia. January 25.-- Nov
that the elections are over the leg
islature can get down to work
There has been a great rush of nev
bills at this session. A great main
bills have been killed and none o
very great importance has beet
passed. The past week was broker
into by the elections, which took al
of Thursday. There wis no ses
sion on Monday and Tuesday.
Hon. H. H. Evans had easy sail
ing for chairman of the board o
directors of the dispensary, receiv
ing almost two votes to one givei
his opponent, though Mr. McDer
mott, who ran against him, is q
most excellent gentleman. The
vote stood 99 to 56 in favor o
Mr. W. 0. Tatum, who wa:
elected dispensary commissioner
is an Orangeburg farmer and i
mieIber of the legislattre. le hiai
long beenii a warm friend of tile dis.

justice ot the supreme court. Thc
business of the ills'itutioll will bx
safe in the hands of N;r. Tatumi.
The other mIIeIIIbCrs of the boar(
of directors ele:cteL are lHon. Johr
Bell Towill, a member of the house
from Lexington, and a young mai
of high character and sterling qual
ities of head and heart; and Mr.
H. W. Boykin, of Kershaw. Mr
Boykin is a successful farmer an
was a candidate for this same posi.
tion two years ago. These tw<
were elected oil the first hallot ove
two opponents of high character.M i
J. B. Wylie, of Chester, and IHon
R. H. Walker, of Barnwell, a mem
her of the present house.
The election of Miss Linne La
borde as State librarian over severa
applicants for the place oin the tirs
billot is a deserved compliment to
most excellent an( a m1ost (leserv
ing young ladly.
The other elections were held o
Thursday eveninig and thlere~ wer
few. candidates. Thlese inicludeC
trustees of the various colleges an
resulted as follows:
Members of the board of trustee
bor the South Carolina College, C. I
Speer, of Yorkville; Rob)ert 1
I lamer, Jr. , of Marion.
Trustees of Clemson Agricultuirt
College, G. Dunncan Belliniger, <
Columbia; Jesse 11. HIardin,
Chester; Ivy M. Mauldin, of Pich
Trustees of the State Colored Co
lege, at Orangeburg, A. G. Bric<
of Chester; J. W. Floyd, of Kei
Trustees for Wnthrop Norms
and Industrial College, D. W. M<
Laurin, of Marion; Dr. T. A. Craw~
ford, of Rock Hill.
Trrustees for the Citadel, Cot. C
S. Gadsden, of Charleston; W. \M
Lewis, of Yorkville.
It is all a mistake abotut Mr. I
A. Sease being legislated out of hi
office as a trustee of Clemson Co
lege. The commliittee to whom we
referred the vacancies to be fille
reported three vacancies on tbi
board of the college but no oI
seemed to know whose terms ha
expired, except that there was tlh
unexpired termi of Mr. Garris,<
spartanbnrg, who dhiedl the pal
year. It was also stated th:
the term of Mr. Jesse, Hardit
of Spa rtanbhurg, had expiredl and Ii
was nomninated to stucceedI hi msel
The president,'f t he joinit assemibl
held that as thle.comiit tee reporte
three places to be filled, t'ie election
could not proceed until three names
were presented, whereupon Mr.
Mauldin, of Pickens, was nomi
nated and the three were voted for.
After the ballot had proceeded some
one suggested that term of Mr. L.
A. Sease, of Newberry, had ex
pired. An examination of the
journal of the house disclosed that
Mr. Sease was elected in 190 , and
, again in j902, and as the term is
tour years it was concluded that
the first election was for an unex
pired term and the second for a full
term, making it expire in 1906.
There should be a record kept in
the office of the secretary of State
and it would be done if these trus
r1tees were commissioned, though
Mr. Sease tells us he has his con
inission for four years from 1902.
The same thing happened with
the trustees of Winthrop, though
Senator Tillnian was actually left
off the board of that institution,
whereas in the Clemson matter it
seems only ,ne too niany was

Mr. Aull has introduced a road

le had prepared a bill on la*-or con
tracts but itiasmtch as a bill n hich
was broughit over from last year
embodied about the same provisiv;ns
lie advocated it. Two bills on this
1 subject have passed the house.
t They provide as follows:
