ur?even sessions of the general assent- j

with some little oppposition in the
ek house, a number of members contendrs'ing
that it was foolish to so attempt

as|will be finally agreed upon. Thomas j
te'S. McMillan of Charleston and John I
es | G. Greer of Greenville spoke in favor j
sn of the resolution while J. K. Owens of j
cr_; Bennettsville opposed the measure on ,
hjthe floor. An amendment, propopsed
r. ;b'y Representative F. G. Harris of
n_ Spartanburg1, to strike out the pro S)i
vision in the resolution preventing
1(j the turning back of the clock also fur
k,;nished a minor cnotest and was killed
after brief debate. Representative
id W. R. Bradford of York spoke against
til the amendment on the grounds that
r_; the general assembly should not work
m on Sunday. The resolution in its un-1
jy amended form was then agreed to. !

0f Dr. S. T. D. Lancaster of Spartan- j

measures so went to their death, chief;
jy among them being the S3pp resolution j

three mill constitutional tax for |
^ school purposes, the Keller bill to I
