Mr. McCullough of Greenville has in
troduced a bill, looking to the collection of

court. We have read the bill over once,
and it strikes us as being a good measure
to put a stop to tax dodging. A man with
a horse or an ox must make a retnrn and
pay the tax, then why not the man who has
bis money invested in securities?

It is abouttime our citizens were begin

for a school next session, as we are in

Collegiate Institute does not expect to
teach any longer than this session. Surely
we are not thinking of trusting to luck for
a school for our children and wait until ne
cesity drives us to take what we can get in
the shape of a teacher. Rteaders,this is a se
rious matter and it behooves us all to join
hands and give Manning a first class
school established upon a solid basis. We
know there are some opposed to a graded
school because it will require a tax to
maintain it, but the majority cannot afford
to allow the wishes of the few to govern in
a matter of such serious importance. Man
ning must have a good school system, cost I
what it will, and it can be had if a majority
will consent to be taxed.

It ha't been demonstrated repeatedly in

said around the globe when he writes: "I

Many of our readers will wonder why it
was that Clarendon was not released frotn
the operations of the seed cotton license
law, when the request to b exempt was a
purely local affair, and the only explana
tion we can give is that Claren don is sand
witched between Sumter and Williamsburg;
the former worked againvt the measure be
cause it would intertere with Sumter and
the later worked against it, because it now
has an advan:age it doe's not want to lose.
'hen there are other counties that are not
only opposed to telling Clarendon to do as
she pleases with this matter, but they are
anxious to fix the license to high that it
would prohibit the traffic in seed cotton al
together. Sumter has a prohibitive license
and her representatives claim that it has
stopped the stealing of cotton. Williams
burg on the other hand hits no license and
her representatives are divided on the
question whether or not the license should
be put on, and until they finally come to
agreement they stand solidly opposed to
Clarendon's release. If not this session,
we promise that at the next session a bill
will be iistro.tuce putting all counties on
an equal footing. If we are to have the
license system orced upon us, then it is
but justice that our adjoining counties be
put under the license system.
La grippe is again epidemic. Every pre
caution should be taken to avoid it. Its

Our Financial Condition.
It is with sincere regret that we have to
make a statement with reference to our
county's financial condition, after having
already in a previous issue held out the
hope that the county tax levy would not be
raised. Believing it to be the best policy
to deal candily with the people, we feel it
due them to acquaint them of the existing
eonditions. In order to ascertain how
much it will need to run the county gov
ernment we must first find out the assessed
valuation of taxable property and then cal
culate a levy that will collect enough to
meet the running expenses. The places to
get this information is the Auditor, Treas
urer, and Supervisor's office, and upon go
ing to the Auditor we find an assessed val
uation of $2,496, 000; this amount with the
present levy of 4 mills brings into the
county treasury $9,984; at the Supervi
sor's office we find the appropriation for
salaries. roads, bridges, chaingang, ineur
ance and other expenses was $10,310,
which was more than a 4 mill levy would
provide, but the reason given us, was that
after the former legislative delegation had
calculated the levy for last year, the State
board of Equalization reduced the assess
ment over $100,000 which of course made
the tax collection several hundred dollars
less than was expected and which defeated
the object of the Representatives (i. e.,)
make the levy raise enough money to
meet all of the county's expenses.
It was our purpose to fight against an
increase in the levy, mainly because of the
hard times and the low prices the people
received for their products, and for the
further reason that we promised to vote
against an increase on the levy; when this
was done however, we did not know the
true financial condition and there was no
way of tinding out until now; what we have
sai'd about this matter before was based
upon estimates; learning the true condition
of affairs we cannot see a reme-ly without
an increased levy. We have witnessed the
disbursing of the county funds the past
week and we saw salaries prorated, a thing
that should never be in a country where it
is believed that the "laborer is worthy of
his hire." Our Sw. riff, Auditor. Magistrates,

Just when the Legislature will ad
journ cannot be told yet, as none of
the important measures have been
acted upon. One if the most im
portant questions to be settled is the
changing of the Congressional Dis
tricts; two bills have been intro
duced; one in the Senate and one in
the House, and we believe the dis
enssion will cost more than the pro
ject is worth. If the re-districting
bills pass as they are written, Clar
endon will be a bump on a log. We
will be tacked on to Richland and
Kershaw, which will mean that Co
lumbia will have the Congressman in
the future. We are opposed to the
scheme and will vote and work
against it. But we fear the politi
cians have got the scheme so thor
oughly organized that it will be hard
to frustrate them.
. The dispensary will take up a
a great part of the time, and since
Mr. Featherstone has advised the
Prohibitionists to join the forces
with the anti-dispensaryites there is
every reason to believe that com
promises will be made. There are
all kinds of views on the liquor ques
tion; some want the dispensary,
others want -prohibition and some
want high license with dispen
sary restrictions. In our opinion,
the people will have to finally settle
this much vexed issue and it will be
best, so that the politicians will have
to seek some new hobby.
A bill was introduced by one of
our representatives to amend the
Hawkers and Peddlers act. This law
requires the County Commissioners
to fix a license on a certain class of
hawkers and peddlers,andthe amend
ment is to include iterant dealers in
horses; as the law stands now there
is no license fee for horse traders
who come here from abroad and
compete with the local. dealers.
These iterant dealers place our local
dealers at a disadvantage, because
the local dealer has his property
here and is taxed while he comes
along, does the same business with
out taxation which is not fair to
those who are a part and parcel of
us and who share in the expenses of
running the government.
Another representative has in con
templation a bill to sell the poor
farm property and the proceeds to
be utilized in some other way. We
doubt the advisibility of this scheme
for the reason that the county must
have a place to take care of its poor.
If a better site could be pro
cued so that the farm could be made
self-sustaining, as is the case in many
counties, we would favor the scheme.
