street, N. W., Washington, D. C.
In regard to the communication
which we publish today from Pine
wood, signed by the Intendant and
wardens of that town in reply to what
"L. A." had to say in his Columbia
letter last week concerning the action
of Magistrate A. P. Ragin in the re
cent trouble at Pinewood, we suppose
it is scarcely necessary to say that
"L. A." is *Senator Louis Appelt.
Of course we are not authorized to
speak for Senator Appelt, and do not
know what reply he will make, if any,
to the communication, but we are of
the opinion that there were a few
matters of detail concerning the Pine
wood trouble and the correspondence
that passed, of which "L. A." was
not and perhaps Las not yet been
made aware. We are sure that
should he find that he has made un
warranted criticism upon Magistrate
Ragin it would be his pleasure to
correct the same, as we are satisfied
it was not his intention to make any
criticism not warranted by the cir
Senator Appelt opposed the wide
tire bill in the Senate last week, but
there were too many purely theore
tical Senators who want to force their
theories upon the people anyhow,
regardless of the people's wants and
the bill did pass that body. Sena
tor Appelt offered to amend by ex
empting eight or ten counties which
do not want the bill. We hope the
the measure will be killed when it
reaches the H ouse. There is no
necessity of such a bill, and of requir
ing people to go to work and put
broad tires on their wagons unless
they want to do so, even though they
be allowed two or three years in
which to make the change. Broad
tired wagons may be better in the up
country, but the people down here
who have to use extremely sandy
roads do not want to be forced into
any such measures, simply for the
sake of a little theory. MIore than
this, we do not believe the measure
is constitutional. It will be an inno
vation upon the personal rights of cit-.
izens and their liberties, to say wvhat
kind of wagons they shall use upon
their own premises. Such a measure
cannot stand if tested in the courts.
If will be impracticable to enforce
such a measure, and for that reason
the law will be a dead issue if passed.
In our opinion the appearance of the
broad tire bill in the legislature is
simply an argument in favor of bien
nial sessions. It demonstrates that
many members go to Columbia not
knowing what they want to do, and
when they get there they are so eager
to do something that they take on to
any theoretical measure and vote for
ir, regardless of the will of their con
stiuents at home, whom they are sup.
posed to represent. This same meas
ure came up in the Senate two years
ago, and this humble writer had the
pleasure of offering an amendment
exempting so many counties that the
originators of the measure then got
provoked with themselves and de
feated their own bill, and we felt
that we had done the people of
the low country, at least, a great
service, even should that be the
only thing we did during the session.
The people of our State are too much
governed. We should not have laws
that there are no necessities for, and
whenever laws are enacted which are
not either for the correction of evils or
the promotion of the public welfare
they become a burden to the people.
We think a law requiring that all
wagons shall have wide tires on them
will be a costly experiment that there
is no crying necessity for, and one
that will cause untold complications
ad annoyance. Sometimes it is well
enough to let well enough alone.
The question of biennial sessions
of the Legislature is now one of con
siderable importance to the people of
South Caroliua. In fact outside of
the liquor question and the providl
ing of some practicable and efficient
way of controlling the ever present
but debauching and baneful liquid,
the question of biennial sessions of
our law-making body is the most imn
portant measure that will likely be
discussed in the approachine State
:ampaign. Whiskey is already here,
from the fact that our people have
long since had the taste for it, and for
that reason it may' be expected that
for many long years it will be a bone
of contention in our politics. The
liquor question cannot, therefore, be
-onsidered as any new problem.
After sll it narrows itself down to the
same old question of whiskey or no
whiskey, and as there are more peo
ple in the State, it seems, who want
whiskey in some form or other than
there are who do not want it at all,
then the next question which pre
sents itself to the good people is,
how to control it so as to have as lit
tle of it sold as possible. So that
there are, really and absolutely, very
on the liquor ciuestio . But the
question of the Legislature meeting
only once in two years is something
which has never been discussed very
much before. Notwithstanding there
is some good, strong argument to be
advanced against biennial sessions,
yet it appears to be an extremely
popular measure, and we haven't a
doubt but that the people will vote
for the necessary changes in the con
stitution. Tne principal argument
which is advanced in favor of bien
nial sessions is upon the ground of
economy, but to our mind the strong
est argument that can be brought in
favor of the question is upon the
broad principle that our State has
too much legislation, and that there
are now many laws upon the statute
books which the people do not need,
and are practically dead issues. When
we consider the experience of Geor
gia and other States having biennial
sessions, with their special sessions
that are unlimited as to length of sit
ting. then the matter of economy to
our mind will admit of some ques
tion. While we are inclined toward
the biennial side of the question, yet
we have not studied it, and the ob
stacles which might arise against it,
sufficiently to advocate the measure
absolutely, as we realize it is not a
safe tbiLg to be frequently tamper
ing with our fundamental constitu
tion. But if the change will prevent
the passage of such a mass of unnec
essary legislation every year and give
the people a breathing spell in which
to take their bearings and learn what
the laws are, and when they are vio
lating the law and when they are not,
then we will heartily favor the meas

disease that seience has been able to cure in
all its stages, and that is catarrh. Hall's
Uatarrh Cure is the only positive enre

being a constitutional disease, requires a
conitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken iuternalty, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the foundation
of the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constituti'n

Since my last letter the principal
measure brought up for discussion in
the Senate, which I regard of inter
est to my constituents, was what is
known as the "wide tire bill." This
measure means to force the use of a
wider tire for vehicles otner than
those used for pleasure, and the pur
pose is to make our roads better. It
is claimed by the friends of the meas
ure that the narrow tires principally
used to the wagons of our people cut
down into the roads and keep them
in bad conditionand they propose to
remedy this by compelling the use of
the wvide tire. I opposed the meas
ure as far as Clarendon was con
cerned, because I regard it a innova
tion which, to use the language of
another,was "paternalism run mad;"
that if the Legislature forced people
to use broader tires on our public
roads there is nothing to hinder it
from compelling the use of broader
soles to shoes. In my judgment, if
the people of their own volition
would make the custom to use the
broad tires, our roads might be im
proved, but I was opposed to forcing
them to the extra expense which
must follow if the bill is enacted into
law. The manufacturers of wagons
can charge more for a wide tire vehi
le, and the law will be a windfall to
them. When I discovered it useless
to try and defeat the bill, I made an
appeal to exempt Clarendun, and to
my amendment came fourteen other
counties asking a similar exemption.
I argued not to force this measure on
us and that when the e'xperiment is
tried satisfactorily in c ounties where
such a scheme is wanted, then my
people, appreciating the benefit,
would ask their representatives to
have them placed in the wide tire
column. I regret to say that my
amendment was lost; even some of
the Senators who had asked for their
counties to be exempted voted
against the exemption on a direct
The question of biennial sessions
created much discussion over in the
House and was carried by a close
margin, and if it passes the Senate
the people will have the privilege to
amend the Constitution so that the
Legislature will meet only once in
two years. Representat ives Rich
ardson, Jones and Woods voted
against biennial sessions, but when
it reaches the Senate I will vote for
it, believing the business of the State
can be subserved fully as well with
the Legislature meeting every two
years, and that will be a saving of
about $40,000 every other year to the

their representative said, I herewith
give them the text of my remarks:
Mr. President: To have been selected
on this solemn occasion to speak to the
resolutions now pending, and which have
been so beautifully and appropriately sec
onded, I sincerely thank the committee for~
the honor, and the privilege accorded me
to place upon the bier of our departed
frienct my garland of esteem. It was my
pleasure, and I esteem it a high honor, to
be counted among the friends of our late
lamented governor, and in the course of an
iitimate association with him I had access
many of his views and intentions.
Governor Ellerbe was an honest man,
what is termed practical politics as a child.
He was a man of fine businuss jidgment
and integrity. le thought for himself.
and whenever he felt that he was rig.t be
had the moral courage of his convctions
and acted accordingly.
While in public life his whelte 1:01an. all

He acted as lis cotscience ictated. and
he prayed to God that his acts would re

people recognized his bonesty of purpose
and his ability, as was .lown by the mag.

they elected him to he highest ofice in
their gift, after he had served them two
terms in the office of Comptrolier General.
They continued their faith in himn by elect.

When affliction laid its heavy h.and upon
him the people were saddened. atid prayed
that if it was His will tWeir governor might
be restored to health. God in H:s intiDnite

.\r. President, I feel it a sacred privi
lege, in behalf of the peopie of Clarendon,
wno loved him anct delighted to honor him,
to place a tribute of esteem and effection
upon the tomb of our lamented governor,
and in so doing I feel that when William
H. Ellerbe was gathered to his fathers he
was prepared for the call, and that fromt
-otnth Carolina was taken a notble and a
devoted son, a gentleman iand at patriot.
