THE LEGISLATURE CLOSES.
The legislature of South Carolina
reached final adjournment on Satur
day night at 11:57, by the legislative
elock, but by our watch at 3:25 a. m.
A great deal of time of the session
was taken up with the discussion of
the dispensary, and the question was
not finally decided until the last night
of the session, though everybody ad
-mitted that nothing would be done
inasmuch as the senate stood pat for
the state dispensary patched up, and
the house stood pat against the state
institution. This action. or rather,
non-action will put the issue squarely
in the state and county campaign
during the coming summer.
In the matter of taxation, one or
two propositions were submitted. One
of them was to give the state board
of equalization authority over person
al property. Another was to adopt the
views of Comptroller General Jones
not to fix any levy in the supply bill,
but to leave that to a committee com
posed of the comptroller general, the
chairman of the ways and means
committee of the house, and the
chairman of the finance committee in
the senate. The idea in this proposi
tion was that the assessments this
year were going to be much larger
than they have been before, and the
levy should be reduced, but the mem
bers of the house seemed to prefer to
fix the levy for the state and their
counties in the usual way.
The *tate levy this year is five
mills. The levy for ordinary county
purposes in Newberry county is three
and one-half mills. There was a de
cided spirit of liberality in the mat
ter of appropriations in the present
legislature. And very little opposi
tion showed itself to any of the ap-.
propriations asked. The amount for
Confederate veterans was incrjeased
* The act providing for a reforma
tory for white boys was passed and
an apropriation of $4,500.00 made for
$20,000 was appropriated to make
an exhibit by the state at the James
town exposition,. which is to be held
$22,000 was appropriated for the
Spurchase of the old guard-house at
Charleston for the use of the citadel
The salaries of the solicitors and
stenographers were raised and made
$2,000.00 was appropriated for the
Confederate Home school of Char
$250.00 was appropriated to pur
ehase fifty copies of Dr. Elzas 's his
tory of the Jews in South Carolina.
$12,500.00 was appropriated for
the expense of the investigation com
mittee of the dispensary, and so on,
making the appropriations over one
and one-quarter million dollars.
A law was passed providing for a
state bank examiner, but the banks
*are to pay the cost of this office just
as the railroads pay the expense of
the railroad commissioners.
AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
Judge George E. Prince rendered a
very important decision last week,
which, if it is confirmed by the su
preme court, will be of general inter
est. He holds that the act of the leg
islature which exempts confederate
veterans from the payment of the li
eense tax is unconstitutional. The
case comes from the mayor's court at
Laurens. A confederate veteran by
the name of Anderson undertook to
do business at Laurens without pay
ing the license tax, and the mayor im
-posed a fine,-holding the law unconsti
tutional. Judge Prince is quoted by
the Anderson Mail as saying: "In
my judgment the law is unconstitu
tional, and that is all there is to it. I
realize that the decision, if it stands
will work a hardship on a great many
Confederate veterans, but the law and
the constitution were before me, and
I could arrive at no other decision. It
is hardly necessary for me'to say, I
suppose, that I have as much symnpa
thy for the Confederate veterans as
any man in the state, but a judge has
to do his duty as he sees it, just as
other people have to do, and I have
simply discharged my duty as I saw
"Abolish the state dispensary.
Give the people oif each county a
choice between county dispensaries
and prohibition. No high license.''
This is the platfom upon which the
next governor will be elected. Just
wait and see.-Anderson Daily Mail.
This has been our platform for a
long time and we are no candidate for
,governor. And yet if the county is to
'be the unit in this matter v-hy should
not the counties be given the options
allowed by the constitution. The
dispensary under eounty control inl
our opinion is a better solution than
prohibition or license. We believe
it would minimize the evils resulting
from the sale of liquor. And that is
what every good citizen should desire.
Under statutory prohibition you only
have prohibition in name.
Julius Eison Acquitted.
A message from Columbia late
yesterday afternoon stated that Jul
ius Eison was acquitted. It will be
remembered that he killed a negro
some time ago who was running from
a policeman. He was undertaking to
stop the fleeing man.
He was put on trial on the charge
of murder, and the jury failed to
In the second trial yesterday in
Columbia the jury remained in the
room about five minutes and brought
in a verdict of not guilty.

Representative Dixon of Montana
has a lynching story. A committee of
vigilantes had captured an Irislunan
and a Swede and were about to hang
them by tying a rope about the neck
of each and shoving them off 'a rail
The first man up was the Swede.
When he was pushed off, the rope
came untied and the man struck the
water and swam ashore.
The Irishman was next, and when
the men were preparing him he said:
"Boys, be dom careful about fixia'
that rope. I can 't swim a stroke.''
