VOL.gXL. NO. 91. NEWBERRY. S. C.. FRIDAY. MARCII 18. 1904. TWICE A WEEK. S1.50 A YEAR
WILL BORROW IN APRIL.
The State Spends' Its Money Before It Is
in Hand-Will Borrow Up To
Columbia. .March TO.-It is rath
er a curious conientary upon the
finances of the state that the borrow
in of money- will have to begin as
early as April. This (toes not mean
that the state is embarrassed or that
it4vill not meet its just an( proper
obligations, but it means that the
state .spends its money before it is
actually in hand. T he expectation
is that the state pensions to Confed
erate soldiers will be paid during
the latter part of April. and when
ever these pensions are paid the
state will have to borrow. The
statutes allow the borrowing of
S200.ooo. with which to meet the
payment of pensions. and at least.1
half. and very probably all, of this
fund will have to be borrowed and
interest paid on it until next year.
Moreover, it will not be long before
the state will have to borrow more
money. as it will not have sufficient
monev on hand with which to meet
current expenses, and at the same
time meet the July interest on the
State debt. The state will have to
borrow money at a greater rate of
interest than it is paying on its!
bonds. By next January the state
will have to borrow up to the legal
The Appropriation Act carries
more money with it than hereto
fore. and the new methods of
raising additional revenue-the
franchise tax, the dog tax and the,
like-will not be available in time
to avoid the maximum amount of
STATE EXECUTIVE COMMiTEE.
Wil Meet On 22d to Call Democrafic Con
vention and to Provide for Prmary
In the Late Mr. Croft's Distlct.
Gen. Wilie Jones, chairman of
the state democratic executive com
mittee, has issued an official call for
a meeting of the committee, to be
held in Columbia. in the secretarv
of state's office. at 8 p. m. on March'
22 for the purpose of calling a state
convention. which is merely a mat
ter of form. and the principal busi-,
ness is the ordering of a primary
in the 2d district. to choose a suc-,
cessor to 'the late Hon. George XV
Croft, and fix the dates for holding

an official order for a general elec
tion on .lay 17. this being made
mandatory hv the state constitution.
The 2d district is compo)sedi of
the counties of Aiken. B3amberg.

Hampton andl Saluda. seven in all.
and the arrangement for the can
Lvass of these counties by the candi-'
dates and the fixing of the dates
for the primaries, for there will be
more than one, is a rather difficult
task. It has been suggested that
the committee fix the first primary
for March 31, and the next for
LApril 19. and the third, if another
flbe necessary, for May 3. This would
5give all candidates time to arrange
Ffor their canvass, and the last pri
Fmary would be held on May 3,
which is the required two weeks be
fore the general election.
So far there have been no furth
er announcements. and the list pub
lished recently about covered all of
the men who were thinking of en
tering the race, unless Mr. Croft's
son decides to become a candidate.
Mr. Willie Lee Graham and Miss
Hattie Harmon. both of the coun
tv, were married at the parsonage
of the Bethlehem charge on March
6th_ by the Rev. L JL Long.
