Entered at the Postoffice at New

Tuesday, January 21, 1908.
Columbia, S. C., Jan. 20.-One
week of the legislature session has
closed. The first week there is usu
ally very little accomplished, excep:
getting matters in shape and intro
dueing bills and getting reports.
As has been stated the general as
..sembly accepted an invitation to vis
it Winthrop college on Saturady, and
there was therefore :o session of
either house or senate. Both houses
meet again tonight at eight o'clock'
but very little will be done. The
elections will likely be held on Wed
Mr. T. P. Cothran has withdrawn
from the race for associate justice
and that assures the re-election of
Associate Tustice Giary. For circuit
judge to succeed Judge James Ald
rich four names have been mention
ed. Robert Aldrich, George H. Bates
and James E. Davis, of the Barn
well bar and Calude E. Sawyer, of
Aiken. The friends of these candi
dates are active but from what I can
gather it would seem that the chances
at present are in favor of the elec
tion of Colonel Aldrich.
Quite a number of measures have
been introduced on 'all subjects but
it would seem that the leading issues
to be discussed at this session of the
general assembly are State prohibi
tion, labor tcontracts, the lien law,
increased appropriations for various
and sundry objects.
As has been stated from time to
time in The Herald and News, we be
lieve if the friends of State pro
hibition could agree upon some meas
ure. their chances of success would
be very good, but the trouble seems
to be that there are several different
propositions looking to the same end
and if the friends of each proposi
tion hold out for their particular
ideas. the chances are that no genaral
prohibition law will be passed. The
sentiment seems to prevail that the
majority of the house is in favor of
prohibition and that in the senate
there is pretty equal division of sen
timent. These 'being the facts it is
difficult to even forecast what the
result will be.
There seems to be little doubt that
some sort of labor contract law will
be adopted. All of the various pro
positions have been r f erred to a
3.pecial committee to report a bill~
which is thought will be constitution
The lien law will take up consider
able discussion and the indications
now are that it will be repealed. It
is a matter which should have ser
ious consideration because it is a sys
tem of .credit which has been in vogue
in this State for some thirty years
and while it has been abused there is
no doubt that it has been of great
assistance to a great ~many people.
'Thre demand for its repeal, however,
fromn the farmers generally and the
farme 's organizations will have con
:siderable influence upon the vote of
-The prohibition bill has already
been discussed briefly, that is the
one introduced by Mr. Nash at the
last session, but whi-ch was recom
mitted, retaining its place on the1
calendar, for the purpose of getting
the friends of prohiibition to agrre
upon one measure.
Compulsory education is set for
*discussio.n on Wednesday. At -the j
'last session two bills were introduc
ed along this line, one by Mr. Ker
shtaw, of Florence, and one by Mr.K
Aull, of Newberry. Thre com~mittee
on education at the last session took
these two bills :and from them r.e
ported a substitute. which was ae'
eeptaible to Mr. Kershaw and Mr.
Aull. The substitute will be discussedI]
by the house on Wednesday.
The most important matter, as it
seems to me. is the question oft apl
propriations. As I have stated. the
tendenev seemns to be to ranitinlg al
most anyvthing~ that is asked. Gov
ernor Ansel recommends that an ad
ditional two mills be added to the
State levy for past indebtedness. It
is not probable that this recommen
dation will be heeded. Winthrop col
lege wants about .$60,000 for a new
dormitory. The friend of high schools
will want aibout *~>0,000 again this
y-ear and it is supposed that the South
Carolina University will need more
money. . The ways and means crom

introduced a bill to levy a one mil

amount that is now appropriatxi
and his bill provides that the more'

Mr. Aull also has a bill for th4
establishment of rural imounted po
lice, which was brought over fron
last year. The original idea of th
bill was to let these mounted policc
take the. place of the dispensary con
stafbles and: be paid out. of the dis
pensary funds, but after the iStatt
dispensary ?'as abolished the bill hai
to be changed. Mter conferenc<
with Representative Nash, of Spar
tanlburg, and other mem1bers, it wa
decided to offer as a substitute a bil
which provides for the rural mountek
police, leaving to each county to sup
ply the number. The bill repeaas al
laws which provide for State consta
bles and for magistrate's cotnstables
the intention being that the mounted
police should perform the duties of
these offices as well as be conserva
tors of the pealce and look after the
enforcement of all laws. It provides:
also, for a police commission compos
ed of two free holders of the county
who do not hold any political office
and the sheriff of the county. Thes.
to appoint and have supervision of
the mounted police. There is to be
e chief in each county at a salary
>f $75 per month and Mr. Aull pro
poses two additional policemen for
Lewberry coun,ty at $60 per month.
kll of these to do patrol duty.
The State constable and the mag
istrates' constables in this county
aow cost about $2.000. Under this
ill h-he three mounted police would
nly cost $2320 and it seems to me
hat the additional )ro,taction which
hey would give to the people in the
rural districts would fully justify
hat. appropriation. Mr. Nash pro
pose!- for Spartan'burr county four
teen mounted policem?n.
This measure wvill very likely come
ip for discussion durina this week.
