STATE NATIONAL GUARD.
Is Entitled to its Allotment :- Fund
to Defray Expenses of Field Ser
The war department has informed
the governor that the National Guard
(f South Carolina has passed inspee
tion and is entitled to the state's pro
portion of the federal appropriation
for the militia. The following letter
has been received from Adjt. Gen.
Sir: I am directed by the actin
secretar 1f)1 war to infrm YOU Chat
the deparitelt has decided that the
or::anized militia of the State of
South Carolina is sufficientlv armed.,
iniforned and equipped for active
duty in the field to entitle the state
to make the use of its allotment un
der Section 1.661. of the Revised Sta
tutes, as amended to defray the ex
penses of the annual field service.
with the express understanding, how
ever, that the shortage of articles re
ported by the inspecting officer, state
ment of which has been furnished to
the adjutant general of the state,
shall be made up during the current I
fiscal year by requisition on the pro
per bureaus of the war department
for such articles as are not in store
at the state ansenal.
(Signed) F. C. Ainsworth,
Ths letter does not mean that the
South Carolina militia has complied
with all th requirements of the
Diek law. but simply that the mili-'
tia is entitled to its share of the cur
rent appropriation by congress. Some
of this money has already been drawn
by the militia, enabling the troops to
take their annual encampment. The
shortages of articles referred to are
in such matters as blankets and drab
uniforms. These deficiencies are-gra
dually remedied and within the next
twelve menths the militia will doubt
less be fully equipped. Last year the
legislature was asked for an appropri
ation of $15,000. for the support of
thE militia and .$25,000 for equip
ment in order to comply with the
Dick law, but the lecislature gave
$15.000 for support and for equop- I
ment. Snce that tmie the presdent
has issued an oider placing the mini
mum of enlisted men in each company
at 55, whereas, under the state law
the minimum had been 40. It will
now be necessary for the state to pro
vide equipment for .58 men n each

Prosperity in the South Keeps Men at
* Home.-Civil Service Commis
sion After Recruits.
A dispatch from Washington to the
News and Courer says that the un-'
precedented prosperity of the south
ern states at this time and the brighft
outlook for the futre is one of the1
main reasons why people from hat
section are not entering the govern
ment service in larger numbers.
John A. McIlheny, of the civil ser
vice commission, who recently made
a tour of .the southern states in an
endeavor to stimulate an interest in
that section in positions in govern
ment wvork through the means of the
commission, is now preparing his re-1
port to be submitted to the other
members of the commission, in ad
vance of which he speaks interesting
ly in an informal way of his trip, of
the people in the south, .and of the
prospects of inducing them at an ear
ly day to accept work in the govern
ment service. Commissioner McIlheny
found the people of the state through]

and prosperous condition. ind this.

passed in a most flourishing and pros-I
perous condition, and this, he says,
applies to practically all localities
with the exception of the State of
Florida, which he did not visit.
Commencing his work in Virginia
and gradually working on down
through the two Carolinas into Geor
gia and Alabama and the states fur
ther south, Mr. McIlheny found the
people generally hard at work with
their crops, but he had not the least
difficulty in securing audiences with
teachers associations, Young Men's
Christian associations, etc. Besides
this many college presidents, before
whom Mr. McIlheny appeared, prom
ised to instruct their students along
lines which would fit them for the
classes of work in the civil service.'
There are many obstacles in the
way of securing eligibles for govern
ment work in the south, as discovered
by Mr. McIlheny. The people of that1
section, being largely of an agricul
tural class, are not quick to give up'
the open, free life of the farm, where
it is easy to make a living, to come to
Washington and enter the government
service often at small pay and sur
rounded, too, with the restrictions
which the rules require. This is onie
reaon. as found by Mr. McIlhienv.
wliy there are so few eligihls for
poit ions in the government service
eelui'ed from the south.
Another thki.g he found was that
;outh of Virginia-beginning with
Korth Carolina and extending all
through the cotton belt-the erection
and operation of cotton mills are of
rering splendid inducements to de
4ervln youngr men at good salaries t>
enter the mills and learn the business.
Many of them go into the factories,
4tarting at the bottom, and learn each
process of cotton manufacture, step
)y step. In three or four years they
Iave entirely mastered the business

irnment service-many of whom have

,2,500 each per year. These are ob
-tacles hard to overcome.
The general prosperous conditions
)f the south, too, are keeping many
leserving people from entering the
rovernment service. It is found that
