Six Propositions to be Voted on in
Columbia, Sept. 22.-Six proposed
constitutional amendments will be vot
ed on in the general election. At the
meeting of the State Democratic ex
ecutive committee Tuesday afternoon.
i Chairman Wilie Jones announced that
the Secretary of State would have the
amendments printed and sent out for
the general election in November.
Two of the proposed amendments,
are of State-wide interest, the one pro
posing to increase the supreme court
to five members, and the one with ref
erence to municipal bonded indebted
ness, a general amendment. There are
two other local amendments proposed
on this subject.
One of the proposed amendments has
L1 special reference to the cities of Co
lumbia, Greenville and Spartanburg
and the town of Manning, it being pro
posed to allow these places to assess
abutting property for permanent im
It is proposed to add to the end of
section 7 of article 8 of the State con
stitution, the following:
"Provided, that the limitations pro
posed by this section and by section 5,
of article 10, of the constitution, shall
not apply to bonded indebtedness in
curred in the towns of Aiken, Camden,
Cheraw, Clinton, Edgefield, St. Mat
thews, when the proceeds of said bonds
are applied solely and exclusively for
the building, erecting, establishing and',
maintaining of waterworks, electric
light plants, sewerage system or
streets, and where the question of in
curring such indebtedness is submit
ted to the qualified electors of said
municipality as provided in the consti
tution upon the question of bonded
A joint resolution was passed, mak
ing the provision that the limitations
of section 7, of article 8, be not applied
when the proceeds are used for such
permanent improvements are n1 -i
above, was also passed. This is the
State-wide pr6posed amendment.
As to Aiken county, there was a spe
cial resolution with reference to sec
tion 7 that the limitations shall not
apply provided the amount does not
exceed 15 per cent of the value of the'
taxable property therein for the pur
pose of establishing improvements.
For St. Matthews the same sort of
amendment is proposed, allowing that
town to build a $20,000 court house.
To increase the supreme court from
four to five members is the object of a
joint resolution proposing to amend
article 5 in section 12. The supreme
court at present consists of the fol
Chief Justice-Ira B. Jones, Lancas
Associate Justices-Eugene B. Gary,
,Abbeville; C. A. Woods, Marion; D. E.
It is proposed to change the consti
,tution so that there shall be five in
stead of four justices. It is argued by
the legal fraternity that much more
work will be accomplished and that the
question of a divided court will not
come up to cause the calling of en
banc sessions of the circuit judges on
Now, when the supreme court is di
vided and there is not an en banc ses
sion, the verdict of the lower court is
affirmed. This has happened twice
within the last two days on important!
Of course the circuit judges may be
called in, even when there is not a
divided court, as at present.
Another amendment is to be submit
ted to the people with regard to the
term of office of the justices. That sec
tion of the constitution is proposed to
be amended so that any three of the
five justices wou]d constitute a quor
um, and that the judges shall be elect
ed for a term of ten instead of eight
years, each of them to go out of offic2
every two years.
