THE COUNTY CAMPAIGN.
(Conrinued From Sixth Page.)
roads machinery until the county had
the money to operate it, though he
believed it to be good machinery
and proitable if the county had the
means at hand to run it.
As to the errors in bills by the last
legislature. the franchise tax bill had
been under consideration by a special
committee for a year and had bet
prepared by the attorney general's
office. He had read the bill over care
fully but under these circumstances
had not read it for technical errors.
He had understood that the dog tax
law was not intended to become oper
ative until next year. dogs already
having been returned for taxation as
property this year. making a double
tax if the head tax had been placed
on before next year. If it was an er
ror he was willing to bear his part of
the blame. But if the people knew
of a perfect man they ought to vote
for him. He did not claim never to
As to the Brice Bill he voted for it
as it finally passed. with the amend
ment providing the tax. and he did
that as a friend of the dispensary. He
had fought the dispensary law when
it was first enacted, but after seeing
the operations of the law in Newber
rv, he had come to the conclusion that
it was better than open bar' rooms
run night and day. and he favored the
dispensary until some one could give
us something better. He had voted
against the Dorroh amendment to the
Brice Bill. leaving it to the discretion
of the governor to impose a tax upon
a county voting out a dispensary, be
cause he didn't believe the governor
should have the power to sa- that a
-tax should be levied upon a county
when the governor came to a con
clusion that that county was not en
forcing the law. He thought a cun
tv which voted out a dispensary
should know when it did so that it
was levying a tax upon itself for the
enforcement of the dispensary law.
. Nor did he think that ii Saluda, for
instance., voted out her dispensary,
that the pron;ts of Newberry's dispen
sary should be applied to the enforce
ment of the dispensary law in Saluda.
For that reason he had opposed the
original Brice Bill and had voted fol
the bill as it passed with the amen
merits. I-n closing Mr. Aull referred
to his rural school Library Bill, un
.der wvhich more than 300 librariei
have already been established with
a very small appropriation. He had
opposed the establishment of an im
migration bureau. because while t~
appropriation the nrst year wa.s very
small, he was convinced that next
year and the next they would ask a
Mr. F. H. Do.minick.
The next speaker was Mr. F. H.
Dominick. Mr. Dominick nirst rook
up the discussion of the Brice Bill.
'When a member ot the legislature he
had opposed a measure simiar to the
original Brice Bill. and he was opa
posed to this measure today. The
Bill to which he referred had been
introduced in the legislature by Mr.
C. P. Sanders. of Spartenburg. Mr'.
Dominick said he voted against rhic
bill all the way through and demand
ed the roll call and put the clincher on
the vote on its indeninite potonmn
He had believed at the :ime and still
believed that the Bill was an attac:
on the dispensary law and an effort
in a roundabout wvay to encompass
the defeat of the dispensary law, and
he believed that subsequent events
would bear him out in this belier
Should such a measure pass, the dis
pensaries in Columbia and Charleston
would be voted out no sooner than thc
measure wvent into effect. This meant
blind tiger liquor run riot. Even th,
most ardent advocates of local option
in its general sense would not hold
that the people should have anything
they wanted and should not have
everything they- did not want. If
evere- community couldI take a vo.te
on every question coming before the
people and decide upont that questio'n
zor itself, how long would we have
an orderly government? But some
said. let the towns say whether ther
wanted a dispensary or not. The peo
ple of the colmty had as much voice
in a matter oi this kind as the people
of the towns. Half of the disnensarv
pronits were theirs. and they' certainly
had a right to say v:hat shoul be
c 'me 'f their pronts arisingr from the
dl speinsary. In the co'umy of Newt
about six thousand dollars. and the
people of the counly had a right to
sav what should be done with these
prits. whether they should get them
or not. Some people said the tax
fcature of the Brice Bill was a punih
m1*nt oil counties voting out the di
pensary. Where was the punish
mem? One-hali mill tax is to bc
ted and expended inider and by di
rection of the governor, and if it was
n t all icd for the purpose of eiiforc
ing the law in such counties. the hal
ance was returned to that county and
there used for ordinary county pur
poses. Should any county obJect to
paying for the enforcement of the
law within its own borders? Should
Newberry's school fund be applied
for the enforcement of the dispensary
laws in Charleston and Columbia? The
dispensary law was not enforced pos
siblv as it should be in all particulars.
but even with its imperfections it was
the best solution of the whiskey ques
tion yet devised.
Mr. Dominick discussed education
I at some length, and then touched on
good roads. He opposed taxation oi
bonding for good roads in the presen
condition of the county. The county
was now about $20,ooo in debt. It
hal been mentioned that there was
half mill more levy this year thar
last year for county purp,ses, and it
was held this was a mistake. This ad
ditional half mill levy ought to hell
the county some. It had been said
that the county always disposed of a
it got in some way. He saw no rea
son *to discuss a matter of this kin<
The various reports submitted to ti
people showed what had been done
with the county's money and spol
for themselves. But taxes were cer
tainly high enough now, and while he
favored good roads. he didn't believe
the people at the present time could
bear the burden of taxation for the
Ipurpose of building then.
As to the labor contract law, he
favored going a little further than
the last legislature had gone. and the
indexing of all contracts in the clerk'.
office. By this means a farmer could
go to the clerk's office and look into
the matter of labor contracts in tht
same manner as he looks into mort
agage;. and the people would be pro
tected. WXhat they needed was pro.
tection along this line.
The speaker was opposed ro con
pulsory education. He believed ii:
edlucation and lamented the fact that
there were twenty thousand more
negroes than white children enrolled
in the public schools of the state lasi
rear. The white children of the state
aought to be educated but it was with
the parents to see to it that they took
adivantage of all the opportunities of
fered to secure an education.
Mr. Dominick favored biennia! se r
sions ot the legislature on acount<
the saving to the people with possibly
even more efficient legislation than w
have at present.'
