LOUIS APPELT, EDITOR.
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 20th, 1895.
There is a class of men in this State who
may be called wouid-be politleal propbts
They have bcen predicting the dow.fall of
John L. McLaurin ever since te had the
serve to differ witb the gr'eat leaders and
tame out.manfully to let 'the penple know
just what be thought tf things in the polit
alrld die di". not go about in an un
derhani-L-.y'.q,.b1t while the leaders were
1r the 7,:nith of their glory he pointed out
twhat he conceived to be wrongs and dan
gerous pit-falls. For doing so, some of the
big leaders have lost their fondness for
him and their little henehmen have ever
since been endeavoring to break the confi
dence of the people in him. Horry county
is one of the places in which the little heel
ers have been trying to do their woik, and
the amount of their success can be imag
ined when they read in the newspapers the
warm and enthusiastic greeting .3cLaurin
recei-ved at Conway last Wednesday at the
hands of about 3,500. people. He was in
vited there to delivg un address to the sur
Tivors of the war, and he was met by the
*,Brooks Guards" veterans, about 100
strong, and a cavalry company, the Horry
Hussars" in full uniform, also about 100
strong, altogether about 700 persons were
in the procession to do honor to the man
whom petty politicians would call a politi
eal corpse. Hundreds of ladies and chil
dren were present and the day was made
one that will remain in the minds of those
people as long as they live. His speech is
published elsewhere, and we are satisfied
that all who may read it will arrive at but
one conclusion, and that is-it is grand.
The Convention raised the constitutional
school tax from two to three mills, which,
with the one dollar poll tax, will give Clar
endon a sufficient sum of money to run
seventy schools for a term of six months.
In our judgment there is no necessity for
seventy schools in the county, %and if we
can manage to meet therequirements cita
less than seven ty, the fewer tl, schools the
longer the free term '11 be. It will be
clearly snee tkai e members of the Con.
yention desiied to give the*children of the
poor man a better chance than they have
4eretof& bad.without increasing the,taxes
of the po r man. As it is, the property
owner is the one who bears 'the.burden,
No poor ,man'can complain at this. It A
complai nts at*al!, they will come fTiam that
clasi of citizens who believeit ia unjust to
tax their property for:the cdz.attion of an
other's children. T'lhres some men op
paed to tanitien for eduntion; they want
every wan % h:v own, and if with
ot the ueab, to do u:at eduaion.
Fortunately, such citizens are few; the ma
jorityar ilg to be taxed, but when
taxed thoy want good schools and to be
within the reach of those for whom free
sehools are intended.
The Legislature will not meet until the
second Tuesday in January. The Conven
tion would save the people lots of money by
postponing this sessien entirely.
SThte Constitutional Convention performed
the grand salary-grab act last night, and
- otecd themselves four dollars per day.
Captain D. J. Bradham voted against in
fiiing~ this wrong upon his people, but
ron. J. W. Kennedy. although a member
-of the Legislature which fixed the salary at
~two dollars. is found among the salary
bbers. Hon. J. S. Cantey's name does
no ppear among those voting. We re

for the unexpired senatorial term resulted
in the election of J. E. Pettigrew over D. H.
Traxley, both Reformers. The former, we
are informed'belongs to what is known as
a "McLaurinite," the other as "anti-Mc
aurin." If this be correct, the ficey poli
ticians of Florence court house must feel
somewhat chagrined at their defeat, because
it has been their boast for a long time that
McLaurin nor his friends need apply for
public favor in that county. 'One of Mc
Laurin's friends, howe,'er, did apply, and
the people gave him what he asked for in
*spite of the self assumed managers of the
nght of the people in Florence co'mty,
and when the next election rolls around we
expect to see a number of the now stiff
necks begging McLaurin for quarter.

THE STATE'S COLLEGES.
The Convention Devotes a Day to
Biscussing Their Status.
Goumnsza, Nov. 16.-Specia.--This en
tire day of the Constitutional Convention
was devoted to a discussion of the question
whether the Legislature should be required.
or simply authorized, to make proper pro.
vision for the different colleges.
The speech of the day was made by Seui
ator Watson of Edgefield, his proposition
being to substitute -'may" for "shall'; in the
section relating to these institutions. Mr.
Watson took the general position that the
State cannot maintain a real university; it
ought not to attempt anything in that line.
He said the higher colleges must be sup
ported by endowments. He thought they
should receive just such support as the
peop'le, represented in the Legislature,
should, from time to time be pleased to
give. The Constitution should not tie the
ands of the people's representatives by
any mandate on this subject.
In the course of his speech Mr, Watson
paid a handsome tribute to the denomina
tional colleges ot ts State, citing them as
examples of what private efforts, properly
directed and united, may do.
It was stated, by some of the colored
delegatts, that Claflin University, at Or
angeburg, is realty under the control of the
Northern Meth.odist church, though that
body-gives but $1,500 out of the $25,o0
used for its support. This particular mat
ter was laid over for future inquiry ad ac
The ordinance to postpone the next ses
son of the Legislature till the second Tues
day in January, 1806, received its third
reading. The Grovernor will, in a few uays,
issue his proclamation formally annonec
ig such postponement.
The Convention adjourned to meet at
noon on Monday.
