Officers of the Legislature. in
Xow that the legislature is prae- en

held b\ that body arc already being pi
discussed. It is the general opinion Y
that Senator \Y. L. Mauldin, of en
(ireenville, w ill be elected president j
pro tern of the senate, lie was formerly
lieutenant governor and as |](
such presided over the senate. Two |?
years ago he was defeated for prcsident
pro tern by Senator Bleaso, the ~|
vote being a tie. If his health per- |;1

^ill elect ed. as i lie |'<?i mer reading
clerk, Mr \\\ II. Stewart, has XVl
been elected a nieinher of the senate |,j
from York. ..
In the house Speaker Whalev will tli
again be ; "andidate lor reelection, st
having served only one term with d s- s?
tinguished ability and -atisfaction. ,
and it is possible that he will not
have opposition. Mr. I). I). Met'oil,
Jr., <?t Marlboro, who was his leadin:;
opponent two vears ai?o, stated
to the correspondent of the News
and Courier a few days ago that lie
would not be. a candidate. Mr. ,1.
W. Xash, who was the third candidate
for speaker in 1907, was defeated
for reelection to the house from
Spartanburg. In connection with the
speakership the names of the following
have been used: Mendel L. Smith,
of Kershaw, formerly speaker; Dr.
C. T. Wvclie, of Xewberry, and 10.
Marion liucker, ol Anderson; but it y
is not known definitely that any one
of these will be a candidate. For r
clerk of the house, Mr. J. Wilson *Gihbes,
of Columbia, is the only candidate
announced to succeed Clerk f
T. C. Hamer, who will retire after ton
years' service. Mr. Gibbos has been ^
assistant clerk for several vears.
The reading clerk of the house, t
Mr. John S Withers, of Chester, has
died since the last session and a new
man will be selected. Mr. J. S. Wilson,
of Lancaster, sergcant-at-arms n
of the house, was in the city today '
and stated that he would he a candidate
for reelection. ?
