against it. The bill was taken up
out of its order on the motion of Mr.
Browning soon after the house con
convened Tuesday morning.
The opposition to the bill dwindled
and almost died out when it was seen
that the house was disposed to accept
the amendment putting the office at
the bestowal of the voters instead of
providing for making it elective by
the general assembly.
Mr. Searson's amendment provid
ing for the present commissioner to
hold office until January 1, 1913, was
adopted by a vote of 58 to 38.
The bill as amended was passed to
No Biennial Sessions.
Mr. Charles in the hogse defended
the bill seeking to provide for bien- i
nial sessions, and had gone to consid
erable trouble to get data. He found
that only six States now held annual
sessions. The general tendency, he
urged, was towards sessions at long
er. Intervals. The State would save
$75,000 to $100,000 by providing for
Mr. Mitchum said that it was a
foregone conclusion that the resolu
tion would be killed, but he favored
the plan. The people voted 3 to 1 in
favor of biennial sessions. South
Carolina is one of the few States with
annual sessions. Mr. Beamguard fa
"ored the resolution and Mr. Bowman
opposed it at this time. The resolu
tion was killed by failure to receive
the necessary two-thirds vote. The
record was 57 to 45 in favor of bien
$100,000 SUPREME COURT ROOM.
Senate Passed Measure to House
Tuesday Morning-Large Amount
The senate Tuesday morning pass
ed the bill authorizing the erection
of a supreme court building. This
measure carries an appropriation of
,$100,000. A commission, composed of
the governor, the chief justice, attor
ney genereal, a member of the senate
and of the house, is empowered to
select an architect and contract for
the erection of the building. Senator
W. L. Mauldin intrVuced this bill on
This measure was debated.
*Some of the members thought that
the finances of the State would not
allow further expenditure of money;
*.that the appropriiation tbill carries
nearly $2,000,000 and should not be
increased. Mr. Mauldin said that the
supreme court is now crowded and
can .not do good work, on. account of
lack of room, and he contended that
this is a step in the <4iTection of econ
omy. The. other State officers will
then have sufficient room in the State
house for their offices.
The bill passed third reading and
was sent to the house by a vote of 26
to 8, the members of the senate cast

To Tax Timber Separately.
The house on Wednesday morning
spent two hours in passing about
sixty-eight bills, so that they will go
to the senate, or will be addressed to
the engrossing department for en- t
rolment as acts.
Aside from the consideration of the t
third reading bills and mattters that i
are in dispute between the two f
branches, the one important matter I
taken up was a bill that had been left
over from last year by Mr. Hill, of If
Colleton. It appears that under the c
present system of taxation timber is t
included with the land, and the corn-)
plaint is made that a great deal of
valuable timber is not now paying t
taxes. The bill that was passed to E
the third reading Wednesday in the
house proposes to tax the timber in.
dependently of the land. The sug- s
gestion was made that this would im- It
pose an additional burden upon theI 1
landowner, who had in most instanc
es contracted to pay the taxes on the
land and timber until it was cut. AL. f
all events, the bill has passed the r
house and will gn to the senate.
WOULD RUN FOR GOVERNOR e
Should Blease Veto Warehouse Bill,
Columbia, Feb. 14.-The statement
is made that Mr. J. L. McLaurin, who
is the particular champion of the
State warehouse 'bill, by invitation ap
peared before the conference commit-)
tee to give his views upon certain of t
the pending amendments.
After the conference, it is stated 1
that a friend of Mr. McLaurin asked i
him what would happen if Governor t
Blease should veto the bill, whereup
on Mr. McLaurin stated that he would
announce his candidacy for governor,
so that he might go into every cour :y
in the State and make the issue upon
the said warehouse bill, which he has
advocated for some time.
KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IT.
Gov. Blease Interviewed on Alleged
Break With Mlayor Grace.
Columbia,' Feb. 12.-Gov. Blease
was asked today what there was, if
anything in the report that there had
been a break between himself . and ~
Mayor Grace, of Charleston. The I
governor said that he had seen an
article in the newspapers about it,
but that he had paid no attention to
it, because he knew nothing of -it,'
and, so far as, he was concerned, that
there was no' difference in the rela
tions between himself and Mayor
Grace. He was asked if he had had i
any communication with Mayor Grace
that might have led to this inference
and stated that he had had no com-,
munication by letter with Mayor
Grace since his induction into office,
either to or from bhim.
Governor Bleas~e was asked if there
had been any breach on account of1
any promise that had been made, or
that had been credited to him, and
Governor Blease stated that he had a
never broken a promise to Mayor
Grace or anyone else, and he knew I
nothing whatever of any break, ind
had been altogether too busy to pay.

Midland, Texas, Feb. 13.-Recalling a
the days of Roy Beau, the famous jus- c
tice of the peace, who .a number of
years ago was known as "All the Law f
West of the Pecos," Judge J. H. t
Knowles of the commissioners' court I
here today laid aside his official dig- r
nity long enough to engage in a fistic c
battle. During the session Judge
Knowles, presiding, made. an assertion
regarding a previous ruling of the ;
court. Inasmuch as the commission- e
ers' court is a county tribunal of con- a
siderable importance in the county, i
comments on it.s ruling are not to be,
lightly made, even by the presiding I
justice. So thought Commissioner!3
Jule Driver, who was present. No t
sooner had the offending remark been r
made than he rose and exclaimed: f
"You are a liar, Judge."
The court did not hesitate. i
