There are many times when men
over-reach themselves in their efforts
to do something to win fame. A bill
was introduced in the Legislature by
Mr. Rogers of Marlboro to require
railroads to give free passage to mem
bers of the General Assembly. Of
course the bill was promptly killed,
not, however, without its costing the
people considerable money, in time
wasted to discuss the preposterous
proposition. The idea of making a
law to give a special privilege to a
class of men who are being paid a
per diem and mileage. Had Mr.
Rogers introduced a bill to decrease
the salary of the members of the Gen
eral Assembly, it would at least have
the appearance of a desire to do
something for the people who put
him in a position to draw four dollars
per day. We hope when the Lext
election comes on the people will find
men to represent them who can think
of something for the public good as
well as their own little affairs. Sup
pose Mr. Rogers bill had been enact
ed into law where would the benefit
reacE the taxpayers? The railroads
would have been mulct to the extent
of the railroad fare of each of the
While the people are casting about
to find suitable men to vote for in the
coming primary it is but natural that
their attention will be principally at
tracted to the aspirants for guberna
torial honors, thus making the other
positions an after consideration, We
desire to ask attention to a gentle
man who is not aspiring to- the office
of Governor, nor is he in league with
those who, to advance their own po
litical purposes, seek to tear down
and destroy the record and the good
namer-of those who now hold the po
sition he seeks. We refer to Hon. C.
W. Garris of Colleton, a young man
brought face to face with the practi
cal business affairs of t bis world and
his success has proven his capability
of grasping practical problems. Mr.
Garris has been a member of the
General Assembly for a number of
terms and his wvork in that body is a
living monument to his clear-headed
judgment and business ability. He
desires to be one of the railroad com
missioners of the State, and we know
of no man who can be selected by the
people who will devote more time,
mind and heart to the work than he.
Mr. Garris is a faithful public ser
vant and if the people place him in
the office of railroad commissioner
they will have a man who will watch
their interests as zealously as h'e does
his own and at the same time he will
see to it that no injustice is done the
railroads. What South Carolina needs
in her offices is good, sound, practi
cal business men, and such a man is
Hon. 0. W. Garris of Colleton.
The attempt to cast a reflection
upon the character of Colonel W. A.
Neal, by some of his opponents last
week not only proved an ignominious
failure but it also proved a booma
rang and have the effect of making
him stronger than ever before. We
are glad that since Col. Neal's enemies
undertook to make political capital
that he was so prompt in making the
clear, straight, and business like
showing that he did. Neal is another
man whom a certain class of politic
ians have knives in soak for, and for
no other reason than he is a friend to
aovernor Ellerbe and was the man
ager of JTohn McLaurin's campaign
last summer when a large portion of
the time the hand of affliction was
*laid upon our junior Senator and he
could not give his personal attention
to his campaign. The class of politi
cal pirates who to defeat Colonel
Neal would resort to rob him of the
good name he so richly merits were
frustrated in their first effort so com
pletely that they are guessing whether
or not the alleged shortage at the
Penitentiary was not a trick to put
them into a hole. It was indeed,
amusing, to see Neal's enemies how
they rolled the alleged shortage un
der their tongues as asweet morsel,
and how they retailed the yarn from
ear to ear and from pillar to post,
but when Neal gave to the press his
statement devoid of frills and super
fluous language, and making it so
plain the simplest child could see and
ustandmit. the breath of the
would-be defamers was taken away
and to their secret holes they hied
If all the officers in South Carolina I
were filled by such men as Colonel
W. A. Neal the hue and cry against
high taxes would not be heard and
all branches of the government would
be the pride of the people.
The financial battle over the silver
question was sharp, fierce and deci
sive for the present, and on the 31st
ult., the Democratic minority in the
lower branch of Congress prodded
the Republican majority with such
argument as will play an important
part in the next campaign. The fol
lowing is taken from the press dis
patches of that date:
Mr Bailey closed for the Democrats
in a speech which stirred his followers
to a high pitch of enthusiasm. Owing
to the great pressure for time he had
only four minutes in which to close
the debate for his side. The resolu
tion under consideration, he said,
contained two propositions, one mo
ral and the other legal. one asserts,
as a matter of law, that the bonds of
the United States are redeemable, at
the option of the Government, in
silver: and the other, as a matter of
morals. that to restore to its coinage
such silver coins as a legal tender in
payment of the bonds, principle and
interest, is not in violation of the
public faith nor in derogation of the
rights of the public creditors. He
would not dwei. he said, on the legal
aspect of the question. There was
not a lawyer in the United States nor
in any other country who would ven
ture, on his professional reputation,
to deny that the bonds could be paid
in silver. That went without saying.
The Republicans, in this matter,
must justify themselves, if at all,
upon the proposition that in their
consciences they believe that gold
was the money of the contract.
"Does one of you believe," said he,
addressing the Republicans," that
if the bondholder owed the Govern
ment, under a similar contract, that
he would not exercise his option? if it
is right that he should exercise his
option as he would, we believe the
Government has the same right with
their positions reversed.
(Democratic applause.) We are
ready to meet you on this issue- the
issue that the money which is good
enough for the people who produce
the wealth is good enough for the
idlers who spend it; that the money
which is good enough for the poor is
good enough for the rich; that the
money the laborer receives for his
toil, and the merchant for his wares,
is good enough for the bondholder,
and by the eternal he shall be com
pelled to take it."
At this point the hammer fell amid
a burst of enthusiasm from the Dem

The last days of tbe Legislature are
very disappointing to us. Some evil
genius seems to have waved his wand
over the lower house, and it is reced
ing from the broad views that we
gave it credit for in the beginning of
the session. They ha. voted down
the broad tire law, and they have cut
the appropriation to the South Caro
lina College down to $20,000 from
$25,000, and divided the privilege tax
between (Clemson and Winthrop. If
these are not backward steps we are
very much mistaken. If there is any
thing that this State does need at
this time it is broad-minded, liberal
men of culture. Oh! for a rest from
narro-minded bigots! It almost
seems to us, and we hate to make the
assertion that the denominational in
stitutions of learning in this State are
about as great a clog to progress as
anything in it. They have a great
many good, learned and true men
connected with them, and they send
out to the world some few of the
above kind, but the anbual crop of
bigots that they turn out every sum-1
mer, we fear more than counterbal
ances the good ones.' Every little
Woffordite turned out every summer
thinks the only path to learning and1
salvation is through the gates of Wof
ford and its sprinkler attachment.
Every Furmanite thinks that he must
go by Greenville, down, by and un
der the pool near Reedy riva'.
Every Presbyterian is p:edestined
for Davidson, and it is tbk only phee
that prayers of the prc.p'er !: wth and
proper intonation are said; and the
Episcopalian must go away to the
mountains of Tennessee to find tiue
and unadulterated knowledge, and
procure hi-s robe, the incarnation of'
purity, godliness and knowledge, and
is symbolic of the angelic wings he is
to wear in the "sweet bye and bye."
The great majority of these gradu
ates return to their people with nar
row and perverted ideas, and instill
them into others. We want first
class State institutions of learning,
that will graduate men of broad, lib
eral minds, that by their daily lives
will preach the creed that by the]
grace of God all men can be saved,
and by that alone. <

Columbia, February 6.-Special
The passage of the supply anc
appropriation bills during the pas
week were tha most notable events
It is a very unusal and at the samE
time commendable thing for these
two most important meesures to get
through the House in the ordinar
progress of the work, As a genera
thing they have to be pushed througi1
and are not considered as they shoulh
be. With plenty of time and afte:
careful consideration the two vita.
bills of the session were passed in the
House without material discussion
and so carefully had the problem
been worked out that there was abso
lutelv no discussion of the tax levy as
reported by the corumittee, or of ally
of the other features of that bill.
IS THE INCOME TAX LAW DEAD?
It is somewhat noteworthy th:t
there has been nothing heard or said
about the income tax law. It wouhl
appear that it is intended to beconme
verv much of a dead letter. The
omonpanion piece of legislation, urged
by Governor Ellerbe, to provide for
a graduated license, went to the
wall early in the session. Generally
here is a strong fight made on the
appropriation bill, but such was not
he case this time. The only appro
priation which was seriously interfer
Ad with was that of the South Car
liua College, and it appears that this
was brought about by a misunder
tanding of the facts with reference
:o the fees and balances of the Col
ege, which made it appear that. the
,ollege would get all that was want
d without the full direct appropria
CLEISON AND wINTIIIIP.
The House showed a disposition
y directing the division of the privi
ege tax between Clemson and Win
:hrop Colleges, to interfere with the
tatus quo. It was perhaps unfortu
mate that this bill should have been
assed at all by the House on ac
ount of the possible construction
hat will be placed on it. The Sen
tors already have their guns ready
or the bill, and as soon as it shows
ts head on the Senate side it will be
THE PROHIBITION BILL.
The greatest sensation of the ses
ion, however, outside of the defeat
)f Mr. Epton, was the terribke shock
he members received when the
douse, by a decisive. vote, refused to
strike out the enacting words of Mr.
Dhilds' prohibition bill. There can be
7o doubt about the surprise, and the
lispensary people have not yet quite
gotten over it. The policy now seems
:o be to choke the life out of the bill,
md this will no doubt be successful.
lie prohibition sentiment in the
ouse is strong-it is very strong
ut it lacks organization. The oppo
ition to the dispensary, as now con
uted, is strong, and is growing, but
bat, too, lacks oi-ganization. It is
ibsolutely without organization, with
ut a head and without a definite
urpose. On the other hand the dis
ensary advocates are banded to
ether~ for the perpetuation of that
aw. It is not an organization with
luly elected officers, or anything tan
;ible on which you can put your
and, but it is there, it is felt, it is
een in its work and is almost to be
nticipated. It just shows the differ
ee between the work that can be
lone. If the Prohibitionists and the
uti-dispensary advocates were to or
anize, as did those who fought
gainst Mr. Epton's confirmation,
ere would not be a shadow of a
loubt that the dispensary law would
mot recognize itself after this General
ssembly got through with it. Mem
ers who have been friends of the
lispensary, and who are staunch Re
ormers, told me that they voted for
he Childs bill simply because they
vere not satisfied with the way things
tre going, and they wanted a change.
Mr. Simkins' bill, with proper push,
vill go through; but it does not carry
ut the popular idea of leaving the
ettlement of the problem to each of
e counties, baut simply solicits an
~xpression from the people of the
tate as a whole; that is better than
iothing, but what is desired is an
ict that will carry results with it, and
ndicate that if the people vote for
>rohibition they shall have it, and
iot have the issue side-tracked, as it
ias been for years, and if the people
rote for licensing the sale of liquor,
inder the constitutional restrictions
hat it can be had without bucking
ip against the terrible pressure that
he dispensary can bring to bear on
my measure through its officials and
imployees generally from one end of
he State to the other, wvho are look
ng for the retention of their posi
ions, they shall have it.
The disposition, however, seems to
e to leave the entire liquor issue
'pen until the elections this summer,
2 the Federal Supreme Court ren
lers its decision in the Vandercook
ase. Tu this connection it may be
entioned that the dispensary law
romises to be the overshadowing is
.ue of the approaching campaign. It
lid look at one time as if the matter
>f higher education would figure
>rominently in the campaign, but the
lispensamy seems to be the one vital
ssue from the present outlook.
THE CAuIPAIGN FOR GOvERNOR.
Governor Ellerbe, ex-State Senator
. B. Watson and State Senator Ar
:er have personally announced their
andidacy for Governor from Colum
>ia, where such announcements seem
o have their birth. The Spartanburg
~Ierald is authority for the announce
nent that former Solicitior Schum
ert of Newberry will be in the race,
md that he has made the announce
net of his candidacy.
Capt. James H. Tillman, while in
e city a day or two ago, made the
2reserved statement that his father,
Dol. George D. Tillman, will be in the
7ace, and that he will be winner. He
utlined the platform in part.
Now, this does not look as if there
,ill be a dearth of candidates, and
e chances are that there will be sev
ral new candidates in the field be
fore two months have passed. The
hances are that the field will be ma
erially changed in a month or two,
.bat is, when the returns begin to
one in as to how candidates are tak
ng, and what chances there are for
of trying to get Senator George S.
Mower to make the race. It is not
known whether he will consent, or
even that he knows anything about
the move. It appears that this move
and talk comes from members who
voted for him for Chief Justice, and
they say they want to show that their
voting for him was because they
thought him entirely worthy of the
honor, and a proper man to be Chief
Justice, and that by supporting Sena
tor Mower they show they are not
"reactionists," as they have been
called. This feeling may die out, but
it is an interesting situation. Mr.
Mower was not voted for by many of
those in the General Assembly, who
ordinarily would support him for any
office, because his candidacy was
Dgnainst that of Chief Justice McIver,
but in a free-for-all race for Gover
nor there would be a material change,
'fit is contended. Should Mr. Mower
be induced to make the race, it would
make a material change in the situa
The two Mayfields, both the Sup
erintendent of Education and Sena
tor S. G. Mayfield, have been men
tioned in connection with the Gov
ernorship, and it is qnin likely that
one of the Mayiield brothers will en
ter the field.
The other day it was remarked
that if Mr. Childs could secure the
passage of his prohibition bill it
meant his election as Governor of
the State, so that it could be given a
fair trial under the man who claimed
most for the law. Mr. Childs is a
sick man, and not now able to under
take a campaign; what a course of
treatment under a specialist, such as
he hoped soon to be able to take,
will do remains to be seen. It is
hoped it will restore him to his for
mer vigor and health. A. few days
ag.o he saw me running up the steps
to the ball of the house, making two
steps at a time, and be remarked
that he would make it inteseiting for
some of the candidates this summer,
and be would come so near to pass
ing his prohibition bill that he would
keep the liquor drummers up at
nights, tinking how soon they were
to lose the cream of their business in
THE SEPARATE COACH BILL.
The passage of the Caughman bill,
looking to separate coaches for the
Iraces, shows what parliamentary
entanglements can bring about. The
House had gotten so sick and tired
of discussing the question, and had
gone up and down the hill so often
on that one question, that it complet
ly reversed itself and adopted the
Ca-ghman bill, as an amendment to
the substitute separate coach bill.
The House had previously killed the
Caughman bill and amendments to it
were practically agreed upon, yet
when the bill was passed by the cir
cuitous route, of coming in as an
amendment, it was found that the
matter had been so tied up with par
liamentary clinchers and calls that no
amendments were in order, and the
bill had to go it~s third reading as
wHlY THE BOOK BILL FAILED.
The "ugliest," and by that I mean the
most vicious, fight was on the parti
san school book bilb offered by Mr-.
Bacot at the solicitation of the
Daughters of the Confedei-acy and
the Con tederate veterans. It is
claimed that it is a mistake that any
reflection was intended against the
old soldiers by the refusal to pass the
bill, because Mr. Wilson, Mr. Be
thune and other veterans voted a
gainst the bill themselves. To a
lai-ge extent it was defeated because
it interfered with, or was thought to
interfere with, the freedom of the pri
vate schools and educational work
done outside of the public schools,
f'r wvhich school books are already
under control of the State board of
education to a certain extent.
AN EA.RLY ADJOURNMENT.
There is absolutely no reason now
why an adjournment cannot be had
next week. The Senate has fixed the
16th as the final day of the session,
and with a concentration on the work
and a sincere purpose to go home
by that time it can be done. Ther-e
will be bills left on the Calendar
there always arec numbers of meas
ures left ~over. If the "four- pers"
ave their way the session can be
dragged out a month longer, but if
the best interests of the members
and their constituency be consultect
there is now no reason way an ad
journment cannot be had on the 16t~h.
As an outside limit the final ad
jouroment can be had on the 17th or
19th. The supply bill contemplates
an adjournment on the 12th, but that
is not likely.

In the United States Supreme
court 'AWashington, D. C., recently,
Just.ce Harlan handed down an
opiion in the case of Howard
Ritter, executor of William M. Rank
vs. the Mutual Life Insurance comn
pany' of New York, involving the
question whether the heirs of a inan
who commits suicide when in sound
mind can recover on an insurance
plicy, The court held that they
could not. It appeared from the'
facts stated that Mi-. Runk, a resident
of Philadelphia, committed suicide
within less than a year after increas
ing his insurance to the extent of
$200,000 upon his life. Of the $200,'
000 the New York company carried
$75,000, which it refused to pay on
the ground that Runk was sane when
he took his life. It was shown in the
trial court that he had written a letter
the day before his death stating that
it was his purpose to put an end to
his life, insurance money could be
collected for the paynment of his debts.
In deciding the case Justice Harlan
said that when an insurance company,
entered into a contract to insure a
man's life' neither party to the con
tract could be supposed to have sui
cide in contemplation and it wvas not'
intended in entering into such a con
tract that t he life of the person in
sured should be at option of either
of the parties. Concluding he said;
explicitly that no insured person
committing suicide and found to be'
of sound mind could rever recover'
nnuon his policy.
