The House of Representatives has
passed a resolution providing for the
submitting to a popular vote of the
people a constitutional amendment
for the Legislature to meet once in
two years. The resolution will also
very likely pass the Senate.
The Charleston News and Courier
is surely waking up. Inan editorial
upon a bill relating to the drawing of
juries in that city it exclaims. "How
ever rotton the jury system in Char
leston, it ought to be and must be
reformed in Charleston and by the
people of Charleston." There is yet
hope for Charleston.
Our members of the Legislature
are all at their posts of duty, and,
outside of Dr. Woods' opposition to
the repeal of the seed cotton license
law rs it relates to Clarendon coun
ty,we think they have voted, as a rule,
straight and sensibly upon every
measure of importance that has yet
come up. But while we think Dr.
Yoods is wrong on this question, yet
it is one which has come to be almost
a matter of indifference to our peo
ple anyhow, and for his sensible
stand upon the marriage license
question we will have to excuse him.
We notice our three representatives
voted against biennial sessions of the
Legislature. We hardly know what
to say about that, but it seems to us
that we have too much legislation.
Senator Appelt made a sensible hit
Tuesnay when the lawyers ini the
Senate got into a big wrangle con
Lerning some purely technical phra
seology in a bill relating to judgment'
rolls and he suggested that if it were
taken out of the hands of the lawyers
the matter could be made plain in a
few minutes. The bill was immedi
ately recomumited to be made plain
enough for non-professional Senators
to undersaand it.
Senator Appelt's bill to take Clar
endon county from under the oper
ations of the seed cotton license law
came up in the House of Representa
tives last week, but representatives
from the ad?oining counties of Sum
ter and Crangeburg fought the meas
ure and it was killed. Dr. Woods
also opposed the bill, while Messrs.
Richardson and Jones worked for it.
This is about the third effort to get
Clarendon out from undecr the opera
tions of an unjust law, but adjoining
counties defeat the measure every
time. While the people of Clarendon
have about gotten used to the law as
it stands and it would not make much
difference to them now whether it
is repealed or not, and while its re
peal would also cut the county out of
about three hundred dollars revenue,
yet this does not remove the fact that'
the present law works a hardship
against poor people by restricting
and limiting the sale by them of an
innocent commodity like seed cotton.
That old argument about negroes
stealing cotton from the fields and
selling it is no good, because there
are always a lot of illicit shops under
the present law that buy seed cotton
and encourage stealing anyhow.
While the subject has almost come to
be a matter of indifference with the
people, yet we believe the present
law is contrary to the constitution
and would be set aside if it were put
to a test, because the constitution
will not allow any such discriminat
The News and Courier was much
fairer in its comments upon Gover
nor MeSweeney's message than was
the Columbia State. While the

It has certa
honene to I
but at the same time because the
Governor did not agree with that
paper on the one question of liquor,
it goes to work and gives him a two
column excoriating editorial, charg*
ing bim with weakness and pronoune
ing the whole message very weak. It
did not give him credit for saying
anything else, and in its treatment of
the message. The State simply
proved itself not only guilty of what
it charged the Governor with being,
but also demonstrated that it is very
biased. It is a great thing that peo
ple do not all think alike, and when
any Governor is influenced solely by
the dictatorial opinions of one or two
newspapers and has no opinion of his
own it is time for him to vacate.
Aud so far from being a cat's paw, as
was insinuated by the State, we think
Governor McSweeney has shown
himself to be a man-a man who not
only has convictions of his own, but
dares to express them, even against
the opiuion of so powerful a critic as
is the State.
Representative Woods deserves
credit for fighting in the House last
Saturday a bill requiring that all per
sons who desire to be married shall
first go to the Probate Judge and
obtain a twenty five cents license for
the same, and be it said to what we
consider the discredit of South Caro
lina, the measure did pass the House.
But we have an abiding faith in the
judgement and good sense of the
Senate to correct all such whims on
the part of the House, and when the
measure gets over into that dignified
body we hope it will be snowed un
der with the summary despatch that
it deserves. Such a measure is only
a step backward, and should this pass
it simply opens the door for a divorce
law, and at the session some little
legislator will be up with a bill for
divorce, upon the ground that South
Carolina is the only state that does
not grant them. The only argument
that is advanced in favor of requiring
marriage licenses is to establish a re
cord for the entailment of property,
and this falls to the ground, because
our State has gone a hundred and
fifty years without needing anything
of the kind. Any married couple
who are of aufficient importance to
have a little property to be handed
down are also of sufficient importance
to be remembered by somebody and
the fact of their having been married
can easily be established by some liv
ing witnesses forty years after they are
dead and gon2. If the couple should
have children those children, and
even the grand children, will cherish
the memories of the married life of
their parents and grand parents, while
on the other hand if there should be
anything resting upon the career of a
married couple which would bring
discredit upon them, the quicker they
drop out of the recollections of every
body the better it will be for their
posterity. We do dot need any di
vorce law in South Carolina, nor do
we need its first stepping stone, a
marriage license law, but rather let
licenses apply to whiskey, tobacco
and dogs. The law should be killed
for sentimental reasons, if there were
not more substantial ones, but we
have only to step over into Georgia
or North Carolina and see the abuses
of divorce laws to make us proud of
the unique distinction which South
Carolins holds along this line. Un
der the present marriage laws in
South Carolina all a man needs is
the word of his betrothed and that
in the presence of two or more wit
nesses, and speaking theoretically it
sees to us that is all be should want.
But should this petty little marriage
license bill become a law, when we
consider the fact that about all the
states require them, then the average
patriotic South Carolinan who doesn't
want his marriage vow mixed up with
small legal entanglements will have
to get on a steamboat and go out
upon the high seas to have his mar
riage vows solemnized.

The readers of this paper will be pleased
to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cnre in
al its stages, and that is catarrh. Hall's
uatarrh Cure is the only positive cure
known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh
being a constitutional disease, requires a
consitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internaliy, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the foundation
f the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work
The propritors have so much faith in its
curative powers that they offer one hundred
dollars for any case that it tails to cure.

The seed cotton license bill Iffecting
Clarendon was killed in the House.
Messrs. Richardson and Jones .spuke for it,
and Dr. Woods, aided by the Orar.geburg

resulting in its defeat by a vote of 30 to 39.
Had there been a full House the license
would have been abolished, we believe.
The Senate has about finished with the
bills that went over from last session, and
they will begin the consideration of new
legislation. What has become known as
the "Appelt local option biNh" wis intro
duced on the first day, but so f: r the jpdi

has not reported; they will take it up on
Wednesday and when it is reported there
will be a spirited tight for the bill. not
withstanding the fact that many legislators
feel that things should remain as they are
until after the next election. We are not
confident of its adoption this time, but the
liquor legislation to come will be on the
lines indicated in the bill.

and his presence is missed in the engross

bills The bill that is to be introducpd in
the Senate with regard to putting the clerk
of court's office on a salary will be put in
as soon as the solicitor can prep re it; the
notea were given him by the senator. A
petition to exempt certain portions of the
county ftom the steck law is now in the
hands of Dr. Woods, who will h:tve a bill
prepared to cover the case: so far there are
no.t counter petitions against the measure.
it is a source cf pleastre to state that Ahe
the tax levy for the county will be reduced
one-fourth of a mill and perhaps more, de
