There's nothing so kingly as kind

Columbia,. S. C., February 3.-The
house to-day .kililed the compusory
The senate after a very heated dis
oussion passed to the third reading
Senator Graydon's bill requiring rail
roads to Dceept mileage an the train;
instead of requiring that the milage

it is taken up as a third reading biT.

Special to Herald and News.
Columbia, Feb. 3.-The State-wide
prohibitiori!- hill has be6n killed by
the serate. - The house, however, has
passed a bill identieal in its provis
ions to the bill which met its death in
the senate; .add the senate - must
take aiother vote on the measure
-which it has- already killed. There is
hardly any possibility of a ehange
of sentiment in -the senate, and in all
likelihood State-wide prohibition has
been finally defeated. so far as the
present general assambly is ..con
Quick Death in the Senate.'

diassion,~ consmning in 'the slaugh
ter only the short time necessary to

nig* kille the State-wide prohibi
io'bigby a .-vte of 22.to. 1. Two
ofpthe- senators were paired, so that
the eal result was 23 to 19-the. full
strength of the senate.
Discussion of the House.
Notwithstanding this action on the
part of the senate,) however, the
house a few mintes' later took up
the simil:ar house -bill and practioally
>the whole night session of the house
was consumed in a 'fiibuster in a
.small way by the opponents of -the
measure, the house. finally - passing
the bill by a vote of.58 to 42.
The ,news -of the depth of the bill
in the senate had already been hieadr
by 'the 'house members before. the,
'honse bill was readhed, but' the
:hibi-tonists in the house w~anted to. put
the house on record, anal weh'e also~
probably inspired by the old ~ adg e
t'hat while there is life there is hope.
By passing the measure in the 'house
the senate will have another chia1ce
in a vote on the hlouse bill, and thel
.prohibitionists of the- house" were
fighting to the' last dithe.
* Quick Work Byr Senate.
The biRl was .reaelied in the seriate
immediately after the consideration
of third reading bills. The senate
met at 8 o'clock, anid before'8:30 theI
matters abiaad~ of 'the measure' had'
been disposed of and the ~bll killed.
When it was rea0hed on the ealend&ar]
Senator Sinkler of Charleston moved,
1o- table the bill, a motion which is
not debatable. The ayes and ays
Lwere immediately called for. S4a
tor Sinkler was requested to with
draw h.is motion in order to allow
discussion, but the chair ruled that,
the ayes and nays having been call
ed for, the motion to table could not
~be withdrawn8 esleept by unanimous
consent. Senator Smith of H'amipto
objection to the motion being waiih
drawn, but later, 'at the request of
some of the senators, withdrew his
objection. Senator Graydon, of Ab
beville, then ohjeczed and n.nanimous
consent for. the' withdmaal of the
motion to table not being grante'd,
the roll was called.
The vote on the motion to table
was as follows:
Yeas (to kill the bill)-Senators
Appelt, Bates, Clifton, Croft, Gray
don, Hardin, Harv,ey, Hough, Kelley,
MeCown, McKeiith.an, Montgomery,
Mckenfuss, Rainsfold, Sink]!r,

Senator Christensen was paired t:
with Senator Rogers. Senator Rog- h
ers woul have voted nay (for th6 s
b:jj), and Senator Chrisi-nsen would p
have voted aye ('to kill the bil). li
In the House. k
When the bill was reached in the f
house Mr. Richards, whose name it n
bears, said that, notwithstanding the n
fact that the senate had killed a sim
ilar bill, he wanted the house to act. 9
Mr. Sawyer wanted to adjourn de- p
bate for a week, but this was killed t
by a vote of 63 to 37. Mr. Duvall
said that it was 'a farce to debate the t
bill, the senate having already acted. f
The previous question - was then g
moved, which 6vould cut off all de- I
bate. Mr. McMahan wanted a de- I
bate on the measure and on the pre
vious question he demanded the roll I
eall. y a vote of 64 to 32 the house <
ordered the previous question. Mr. I
Browning wanted to take a recess of <
15 minutes, but this was voted down.
Mr. Ayer said that .tutting off de
bate was putting a gag law into ef
feet, and that it was an outrage.
A -harleston Amendment.
Mr. Cosgrove had an amendment E
providing that the law should go
into effeit on January 1, 1911, in
sbead of April of this year. He said
that Ch2fleston had $200,000 involv
eld, and if there was any danger of
ithe bill becoming a law some little
time would be needed to effeet t
eipge. In the section of the
pminted bilf which put the la* into
effect in April, 1910, the word April
occurred on one hne and the year <
on te next line. Mr. Oogrpve's a
first am'endment 'was to strike .6ut
April' and. insert Jammary. s 1isC
amendei't Was carred by a vote of
61 to 45. Mr. .Cesgrove's next amend- 1

the bill, as it staind, woula pat pro- I
hibiton into effect on January 1, i
1910. Mr. Cosgrove' then had an I
amendment to reduce 'the license of it
etail di-uggists handling pure alcohol I
from $5,000 to $1,000 per year. This <
was killed,by a vote of 49 to 34 and 1
Mr. Cosgrove 's next amendment, to
give violatirs of the law the altera- I
-tive of a fine was also -kie&ll -The- i
.1ill was.then oidered to 'a. thiir4l
reading by a vote of 58 to. 42.'

Mr. McMaflan of Columbia oppos
ed the bil', urging that the compr~o
mise of last year was binding, and
that a referendum to the people was
almost sacred. The only possible
ground for disregarding the refer
endum, he supposed, was the conten
tion of the mijority in the 'house that
bease it was a referendun to
the several counties and not to the
Sitate at large, that it was not bind- '
ing, ut the general assemibly bad by
solem~n act decided upon a referen
dum to 'the coanties, and it was not r
calculated to reflect credit upon d
general assembly to create the belief
that its decision had been made
without thinking That it was reson
a'ble and would have some effect and
some standing. To pass this bill
now. he sa.id, would be to place a
co.trary, illogical and unbecoming
record into the history of South
Carolina. Another view whieh he
urged was that the county was the
proper unit to decide as to a policyI
so deeply concerning the habits,
mode of lif and seceial conditions
c its cities and towns. It was far
etter, he said, for the enforcement
