Columbia, Feb. 27.?The senate reassembled
on Tuesday night and the 1
house on Wednesday night. The
T~ c-im r?lir hoon 11U rlfi M cr tilDP i

, waiting on the senate. The senate on!
Wednesday and Wednesday night
gave consideration to the appropriation
bill. The finance committee
made a good many changes in the bill I
r.s it came from the house. Just what',
the result of these changes will bie, of
course, will depend on the attitude of
the house. No doubt the house will (
refuse concurrence in all senate
amendments and then the final re- j
suit will be left to a committee or
free conference. >
Most of the changes were of small
amounts, except the two relating to
the development of the new asylum
^ at State Park. The State Hospital!
Commission, who have charge of the*
development, owed a balance borrow-J
ed from the sinking fund commission I'
of ^bout $165,000, which the house
concluded would not have to he paid
at this session, for the reason of the
? pending lawsuit on the bond matter
. and the further fact that the bonds do
not have to paid for twenty years, and,
therefore, the house provided for the ,
raising of the money if the sinking
fund oommission should determine
^ that it was actually neuesscti v, uuij
^ did not make the appropriation, but
did provide for the continuance of the
_ -work of the new development for ani
other year. The finance committee of j
! the senate and the senate cut out the
provision for continuing the work, and
put in the money to be returned to the
sinking fund. If the house agrees to
this it will mean a heavy financial loss
to the State, especially in the face of
the resolution passed by both houses
that it is the policy of the State to
remove the entire institution to the
property in the country.
Both houses have passed the compulsory
school attendance law. It is
a local option measure and as I see I
it is carrying local option just a little i
far. However, it may be the beginning j
of a general compulsory attendance
law and certainly one is needed in this
State. It is generally understood th _tt i
the governor will veto any sort of'
compulsory attendance law that might
have been passed. The vote in the;
house would indicate that it might
pass such a law over his veto, but it is ,v
scarcely probable that the senate .
would do so. The speeches that I \
heard on the subject against the bill *
seemed to me to be the best arguments\
in favor of the law. It is strange what
foolish notions some people have ^.bout |
many subjects. I suppose tney tninKi,
my views are strange on many sub-*
jects, also, and may be they are. js
Up to Thursday morning the senate n
had not~acted on the one-mill tax bill p
for common schools passed by toe :
house, nor on the bill to abolish thoj
mill nrflinVl alcn nnccori tho !
bouse. The senate Wednesday mj-n !
ing refused to continue the Charles- j
ton liquor license bill by one vote.?
The free conference committee on the j
appropriation bill took it up Thursday J
afternoon. The members who are to j
adjust the differences between the two:
houses are Dick, Nicholson and Ker.i- ^
bert from the hous^, and Hard:n. [
Christensen and Mars from the senate, j
Every 02ie is more or less interest-!
ed in the tax question, and those of j
n? who n;iv the least are generally the I
more interested, or, at least, make the |
biggest noise about high taxes. I do 1
not see how, even with the increased J
property values, the levy can re- j
.main what it was and raise sufficient
revenue to meet the appropriation bill. ,
There is obliged to be nearly a mill v
in/iro-ico in tho 1pi*v nnlpss thp rtpfirit
is increased and that only postpones <
the evil day.
As to local matters no one scorns
to know just what has been done about
the bond issue or the increase in the
fpay of county officials. I suppose all*
these matters will be attended to in '
coramittee of free conference. The.
levy for county purposes will have/
to be raised or the deficit will have to
niin iin and make the burden greater!
Jjf "i' ?-- _
in the end. If the past indebtedness
is only about $17,000 it would be bet- j
ter to make a special levy and pay it i
-off in a year or two than to issue bonds
'and go on paying tax and interest for
ktwenty years. '
Investigation seehis to be the order J
of the day. A number of matters have^
* * J? ? !
kbeen investigated aireauy. n any gwuj

;it is. The latest is a committee to ?

in Newberry to serve as a monument j

Then turn your thoughts on Newberry

up to his opportunity.
The Newberry Herald and News is

The Herald and News does not have
to "try" to "make an exhibition of
fairness." Its reputation for fair
dealing and honest discussion of public
questions and public men was
made long before the Rock Hill Herald
was born. The Herald and News
is not, and never has been, a hero
worshiper, nor a hero hater, b.it has
always practiced the good old doctrine
of a square deal to every one,
and has always reserved the ri.<lit, and
exercised it, to speak its mind clearly
and honestly on all questions. To
criticize \vhere it thought criticism
deserved and to commend where commendation
was proper. We have nov

of the grades are simply crowded to
the point of congestion. Pupils are
still coming in. Already there are
more than one hundred white children
in th-e grades than were in school this
time last year.
In February of last year 643 pupils'
had enrolled with 582 in actual at- i
tendance. Up to this month 750 pu-1
pils have enrolled with 6S0 in actual j
attendance. This makes f07 more pu- j
pils enrolled to date than were en-;
rolled up to the same time last year!
and 98 more in actual attendance. !
This increase in attendance does j
not hold for the colored school. On I
the contrary there has been a marked j
decrease in the attendance at the co!-j
ored school. Up to this time last j
year the colored school had enrolled
417, but up to this month Hoge school
has enrolled only 258.

The Story of a }fan Who Refused;
In the March American Magazine,'
Brand Whitlock, Mayor of Toledo,:
Ohio, writes an interesting article in
which he relates some of his exporiences
in Illinois with Gevernor Altgeld j
and ai!ov> some of his experiences as aj
journalist in the Illinois State 1-eglsla-j
ture. One member of the legislature1
interested him particularly. Telling the!
story of this legislator, he s?\s:
"He was a member, sent there from
some rural district far dnwr in the
southern end of the Sta.3, and all
through the session he ha J been siU.vl,
taking no part, except to vote, and to
vote, on most occ2s; ?!.?, with his pa.ty,
which, in those 'days, was the
v.h.-Ie duty of man. This night would
see the end of his political career, if j
his brief exper-onco 11 an ob ure, v'-i

"The old man stood thi.T" 'iPe the
long roll was being ca'!cd, sn I the
crisis approached, and the nervo;is tension
was a keen pain. And suddenly
one of the gas lobbyists went up :o
him, there on the verge of the house,}
and began to talk with him. I had the
story a good while afterwards from i
one of the whips, who, it seemed, :
knew all that had gon^ on that night. I
The lobbyist of course knew about the
man, knew especially about his nec- i
essities, as lobbyists do; and he began
to talk to the old fellow about them? j
about his poverty and his children, and
he used the old argument which has;
been employed so long and so successfully
with the rural members of all
our legislatures, and has been the
source of so much evil in our cit>
governments, that is the argument that
the bill concerned only Chicago, and
that the folks down home would neither
know nor care how he voted on
it, and then?how much two thousand
dollars would mean to him. As
the lobbyist talked, th^re were various
eyes that looked at him, waiting for a
sign; they needed only a few votes
then, and the roll-call was being delayed
by one pretense and another,
and the clock was turned back. The
old fellow listened and stroked his
chin, and then presently, when the
lobbyist had done, he turned his old
blue eyes on him and said:
