WORKING TO CLOSE
ADJOURNMENT TO-NIGHT OR
EARLY TOMORROW MORNING
Asylum Matter Under Discussion in
Senate. -House About
Columbia. Feb. 17.-Tomorrow or
early Saturday morning will probably
see the close of the legislative session
Asylum Question in Senate.
Upon a motion to table the reso
lution calling for the resignation of
Dr. J. W. Babcock and the board of
regents of the State Hospi*al for the
Insane, the Senate came very near
reaching a vote upon the Asylum
matter, shortly after - meeting last
evening, but, the motion was- with
drawn by Senator Rogers when it
became known that more discussion
was desired by Senators. The de
' bate having for the last two days
been rather upon the resolution than
upon the "minority" ,bill, Senator
- Rogers moved to take up this resolu
tion and thus discharge the "special
order" on the bill. This motion pre
'vailing, Senator Rogers moved to
table the resolution, and had this
motion not been later withdrawn the
effect would have been an immediate
vote with no further debate. When
Senator Rogers made this motion
there arose a storm of opposition to
the cutting off. of the diseassion.
Senator Graydon stated that there
"had not been any discussion yet on
the resolution. Senator Christensen
said the action was unprecedented in
"I have never seen debate cut off,
,-In this manner," said Senator Chris
tensen. Senator Williams said that
other Senators wished to speak on
the resolution. "I appeal to the Sen
-ate" saijd Mr. Williams. "Let's have
fair play, let no gag. law prevail in
the Senate of South .Carolina."
In the midst of Senator William's
remarks Senator Rogers arose for
the purpose of withdrawing the mo
tion to table the resolntion, stat
ing that he would yield the floor for
i16 other purpose, and at this point
the-re was a .sharp colloquy between
the two Senators. Senator Rogers
said: "I am going to withdraw the
motion, but it is not at the dicta
tion of the senator from Lanfcaster."
.Senator Rogers explained that he
had heard several Senators remark
that they were ready to vote, and de
plored the fact that so much time
~hab.been taken up with the matter.
-'"Since several Senators have got up
ana said they 'wish to make speeches
I will withdraw the motion-to table."
*-This ended the incident that pre
eipitated quite an unusual display :of
feeling on the part of several Sens
,tors. Thie resolution asking for the
resignations was then- taken up and
Oiscussed. The galleries were well
packed last night, and all available
room downstairs in the Senate chain
ber was taken up. Nearly all thp
* Senators ywere in their places.
