The committee introduced a biHl to
carry out their recommendations.
The Senate then ratinted a namber i
of bills and adj urned.
In the Senate on Thursday a lengthy
discussion tock place over Mr. Mow
er's bill amending the reviseds;atutes
relatin2 to judgments. It provided
that a judgment should be a lien for
twenty years without privilege of re
newal. Mr. Rsgsdale cifered an
amendment substituting ten years for
twenty. This was adopted. Then
Mr. Hay moved to strike out the en
acting words cf the bill, as amended.
and this was done. Thus after march
ing up the hill and around the fill
and down the hill again, the law was',
left as it now is.
Mr. Dean representing the minority
of the committee on commerce and
manufacture, spoke in favor of abol
ishing the office of Phosphate Inspec
tor. He said the industry was in a
state of collapse and the inspector had
but little to do. except to stay on his
farm. He did not wish the to:al aboli
tion of the office, but to empower the
phosphate commission, consisting of
the governor and certain other state
cfficers, when they deemed it wise or
necessary. to employ an inspector and
pay him $50 a month. This would
save the state a considerable sum.
We have heard much hard times and I
economy, and this is P gocd time to
practice what we preach.
Mr. Archer said the majority of the
committee, after careful cousideration,
decided that inasmuch as the phos
phate industry was looking up, they
deemed it best to make no change.
Mr. Pettigrew agreed with Mr.
Archer and cited cases where the in
spector had detected and corrected er
rors by which many dollars were
saved to the state. The business is on
the increase and it is important that
we should not disturb the present
Mr. Dean said the minority did not
wish the abolition of the office as the
senator from Florence seemed to have I
amumed. The office was merely a
sinecure and it would be well to have
it abolished. -
Mr Archer moved to indefinitely
postpone the bill. On this motion,
the ay es and nays were cafled and the

When the approriation bill came u I
the first deboate arose over the amiendi
ment to raise the contingent fund of
the adjutant and inspector general
frcm $75 to $150. Mr. Arch r moved
to table this amen drrient.
Mr. Buist said $75 was absolutely
inadequate. The office had never had
less than that amount. The amount
was left at $150. An effort was made
to cut the appropriation for the trav
eling expens- s of the adjutant general
from $500 to $150.
Mr. Archer favored the reduction
because we were on a gold standard.
The amount was finally left at $500
The amount for the state board of
health was raised from $1,500 to $2,
Mr. Pettigrew moved to indefinitely
postpone the amendment increasing
the appropriation to the Sou:h Caro
lina College from $20,000 to $25,000.
He said the time for economy has
come. Every officers salary had been
reduced and the reduction should es
tend all along down the line. Tne
college professors were getting the
same salaries as years ago.
Mr. Archer said in the denomnina
lional schools of this state, 644 ooys
were taught at an exp-:nse of $23,750.
In the South Carolina College 172
boys were taught at a cost $25.000.
He thought if 644 could be taugh, for
$23,750 it was reasonable that 172
could be taught for $2u,000. li'r near
ly a century this college has drawna
an average of $25,000 or a total of
over $2,000,000 mn toat time. Why
have not some of her graduates, some
of her friends who maitntain that we
cannot get along withoust this ilus
trous institution-why have they not
given an er~dowment to the college
that they hold so dear. Of the nuni
her of pupils referred to, seventy one
pay tuition. This is a matter of eco:I
omy, and he thought $20,000 sutil
Mr. Henderson said this question
should be discussed qietly. We al
know times are hara, but no fac.
have been given, no figures adduced
to show ihat his codle~e ceu'd be run
on $20,000. If the cellege is ex-rava
gantly conducted wby could ti au
mnvestigation have been made? The
college was rno pauper. It was made
by our lawaakers. They gave it ex
istence and it is their duty to aapper t
it and not to starve it by de-nras. I
it is the purgcse to aou.lish trie coillez
let the purpose be preciaimed and tu.

$25,000. That amount: was r ecessary
