Lancaster. Abbeville and almost i .
every other progressive town of the j,
size of Newberry has a live chamber j t
of cemmerce or other business organization.
Abbeville and Lancaster have but .
recently organized. The business men
of these communities realized that if
their communities were to keep pace 0.Q.
with other towns in the State, it was
absolutely necessary that they' get ^
TLie point we desire to make in call- an

organizing a live chamber of com- j t;K

the live business men of the city. We j 0f
hope that it will result in our busii.ess

such an organization. It should ^
be Yoluntarv. It should be enthusiasatc

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
After a session which went about j ha1
two weeks beyond the customary 40 ^
days, the general assembly adjourned ag;
sine die shortly after midnight on t|ie
Thursday night. It was a session in jV.
which a great deal of interest was cen- ^
tred, and in which there were some incidents
which were very much out of 4
the ordinary, but very little was done j eye
except the passage of a great mass of sor
local legislation. Several meritorious wit
measures died upon the calendars. ?le
By the action of the senate and the j
governor 'the extraordinary large appropriation
bill was held down con- ^
siderably. . | me
We have no doubt that all departments
of the government, as well as j
most of the people of the State, are Cisi
glad that the session is over?though
.he people of South Carolina seem to gk
like political excitement. ! me
There will be a State campaign be- tjV(
fore another session, and the records per
which have been made will no doubt ^eibe
fully placed before the people of j pei
every county in the State.
The Herald and News has given full t?
reports of the entire session. scj]

road running: through his premises. It j
should be a matter of pride for prop- I l^e
orty owners to have the roads in front jln
ot their houses "properly graded and j en:
surfaced. Certainly it would increase Sev
a man's own s^lf-respect while com- ma
manding the respect and commenda- , .
tion of otaers. The sand-clay road
and the split-log drag is a combination
that can not be beat. The two go to- j 30
gether and should be inseparable.?! sch

This is worth serious thought. If
we could just get the people to think 1
and to think broadly and beyond their noi
own little selves we could have the j the
ideal life. How easy it would be for j do
every property owner, at leas' to co-1 gen
operate, in the maintenance of the hoi
road through his place. It should be,1 out

PIT STATE ON CASH BASIS.
The action of tiie house in sustair
; the governor's vero of tlie prov
in in the appropriation bill for til
rrowing of money to pay current e>
uses, etc., has caused considerabl
*eulation. There is a general pre
ion in the code for the borrowin
this money, and whether or lie
s will cover the matter is the queh
n which is being discussed. Th
verncr asked the general assembl
relieve him of acting with the comr
>ller general and the State treasui
in the borrowing of this mone:
d when this was not done, he vetoe
} section, ana tne veio was sustain
by the house.
Whatever the decision in the dir
ssion. we have no idea the variou
partments of the State will be a]
^ed by their respective heads to sul
, but the whole matter emphasize
: fact that the Srate should be pu
Dn a cash basis. And it is the dut;
the legislature to do this.

these schools, and until last yea
