fewer, their lines are growing thinner,

were far on the shady side of

faded, but their pride in being an old

Since my last letter there has been
very little but routine work done here.
The new administration has taken
charge, and immediately after the Gov
ernor's inauguration I made out and
handed into to his office, the list of can
didates for appointment, nominated in
the primary. These were: TreasurerL.
L. Wells; Auditor,A. P. Burgess; Mag
istrates: At Manning, S. M. Youmans;

As mentioned last week, Dr. Woods
has a bill to abolish the magistrate's
office at Turbeville. This bill came up
for consideration, and Mr. Scarborough
moved to strike out the enacting words,
which put the Doctor on his mettle
and he made a speech to sustain his
ontention. He contends that it is the
wish of Salem to have only one magis
trate,and to give that magistrate and his
onstable increased pay, as all the work
done in Salem is done by the magis
trate at New Zion. Mr. Scarborough's
motion to strike out the enacting words
had the approval of 'Mr. Dingle, anad
the motion prevailed, which meant the
death of the bill, but just before it was
finally buried, Mr. Ship, of Florence.
directed attention to a House rule re
lating to officers, and the matter was
passed over, thus giving Doctor Woods
another opportunity to get his bill be
fore the House. This measure has
reated a small size storm in the Salem
section. There are some in and about
the New Zion section wanting the leg
islation Dr. Woods is asking for.
Whether or not they believe it to be in
the interest of better service, or be
cause they are the friends of the New
ion magistrate and want him and his
onstable to get more pay, I do know,
ut when the Doctor claims he is rep
resentinoP the wishes of a large major
t of Salem in this matter, the rest of
the delegation cannot agree with him.
because we have in our possession a pe
tition containing the names of 158 citi
zens of Douglas and Sandy Grove town
ships, urging us to kill Doctor Woods'
ill. Then the delegation views the mat
ter in another light; the office at Tur
beville has been cut off from New
Zion by the County Executive Commit
tee so that New Zion and Midway could
vote for the magistrate at New Zion.
nd Douglas and Sandy Grove vote for
agistrate at Turbeville. These mag
istrates were recently nominated by
the people of their respective sections,
nd the delegation, with the exception
of Dr. Woods, feel that to not permit
the magistrate at Turbeville to have
the office to which he was nominated
would be a violation of the primary
pledge, hence they will stand by the
nominee of the primary and leave the
:agisterial offices in Salem as they
are and upon the same pay.
Mr. Scarborough has introduced a
bill in the House to prevent the adul
teration of cotton seed meal and to pro
vide a penalty therefor. The bill was
oeferred to the committee on .agricul
ture. The cotton seed mill interests
were aroused by this bill, and made a
desperate fight before the-committee
to prevent favorable action, but Mr.
Scarborough met their arguments at
every turn and succeeded in convinc
ing the committee that his bill was
meritorious and it was reported favor
able, thus giving the measure the ad
vantage of the committee's prestige
and support. I am told by some who
were present at the committee meeting
that "Old Scarborough's" answers to
the scientific arguments of the mill
men appealed to common business and
he proved in his own peculiar way that
his knowledge was obtained, not from
lectures and books, but from actual
practical experience. When he finish
ed the fine spun theories of the oil mill
magnates was full of holes. The bill
has not yet been printed, and therefore
I am unable to give its details, but as 1
understand, it is to prevent cotton seed
meal that has not the proper per cent.
of ammonia from being put on the
market as standa'rd. I think he wants
the standard to be not less than eight
per cent. ammonia; anyway his pur
pose is in the interest of the farmers.
There was a measure in the House to
regulate the sale of cocaine. Doctor
Woods was opposed to it, moved to
strike out the enacting words, and
after Mr. McMaster spoke in the bill's
defence, Dr. Woods again got up and
made a speech in opposition. He con
tradicted some of the statements made
by Mr. McMaster and ridicuted the
idea of any but medical men formula
ting such measures. The Doctor thinks
when it comes to anything that relates
to diseases or medicines laymen should
not tamper with it, but leave those
things to the doctors. The bill went
to a third reading almost unanimously.
The bill I spoke of last week rela
ting to prevent immigrant agents from
oming here and inducing the labor
away, was passed to a third reading. I
was about to introduce this same bill
in accordance with several editorials I
had published in THE TIMES. I, be
ieve it will have a good effect and is in
the iterest of our farmers, but when I
found that Doctor Sawyer, of George
town, had already such a bill, I tore up
mine to enlist upon his side. .With me
it makes no difference who introduces
a measure, if it appeals to my judg
ment as a good thing .for the public
welfare I will support it.
The bill introduced by myself rela
ting to labor contracts, after the best
argument I could make, did not con
vince the committee that it should pass
and they made an unfavorable report.
I had the bill placed upon the. Calen
dar and will make a fight for its pas
sage upon the floor of the Senate. Sev
eral members of the committee are from
the upper counties and they told me
that the labor conditions with them are
satisfactory under the existing labor
ontract laws. They seemed surprised
to learn that with us the labor contract
system has become so abused that
when a man employs a hand he takes
the chances of paying money be never
dreamed of or waking up some morning
gang for not paying a debt to a werch
ant who put him under contract but
never had an idea of working him on a
farm. Since the bill has been reported
I have taken the trouble to explain it
to a number of Senators and I now be
lieve there is hope for its passage with
probably some amendments.
As chairman of the deleation I in
vited the House delegation to my room
at Wright's hotel, and we had a meet
ing last Thursday night. After con
sidering the estimates furnished us by
the county commissioners, we found
that it would be imdossible to reduce
the levy for ordinary county expenses,
and decided to make it as at present
2 3-4 mills, and to take the one-half
mill levy for jail purposes and put it on
the roads, together with a commutation
tax of S2. In round numbers this should
have about $S,000 for road purposes,
and with a business administration of
the commissioners' office I feel that
there will be a marked improvement
upon our roads and in our county
affairs. The delegation unanimously
signed the recommendation of Dr. C.
D. Geiger and B. P. Broadway for ap
pointment as members of the Board of
County Commissioners. Mr. Broad
way has had considerable experience
on the board and his continuance will be
of great value to the new supervisor.
Dr.Geiger was appointed to succeed 'Mr.
H. M. McIntosh. who was regarded as
ineligible because of coming from the
same section of the county that the su
pervisor resides in,- and it was thought
ise to have the commissioners repre
senting different sections. Mr. McIn
tosh has made a good commissioner,
nd it was with reluctance the delega
Zon displaced him. Docd r Geiger was
not an applicant for the place, but the
appointment was tendered him because
of the delegation's confidence in his
qualifications to sit on the lid of the
treasury, his excellent business ability.
The acceptance of Doctor Geiger should
be appreciated, as it will entail a great
sacrifice, and nothing but patriotism
induces him. I am satisfied that every
account against the county will be
thoroughly investigated jbefore paid,
and that every economy will be ex

General's report for 1905. Therefore,

I showed thie delegation at-'this meet
ng the financial condition of the
onty according to the statement furn
ished by the clerk of the Board of Com
missioners, and it is far from satisfac
tory to me. There was spent last year
an roads and bridges. and for the
~haingang the enormous sum of $10,
140.81, and this does not include, the
road engine upon which there is a
ebt still hanging over the county of
$2,610. We are informed the county's
note is in the bank bearing interest
fter the first of this month. We can
not remove this indebtedness unless we
raise the tax levy. It is impossible, be
aause with the present levy it will take
. most economical management to meet
current expenses. Then what is to be
tne? The people are crying against
oppressive taxes, and we are in debt
for a machine which is practically
worthless to the county, to pay for it
would require not less than three
fourths of a mill increase in the levy.
This debt will have to be paid, sooner
or later, but I thought we would watt
another year and see how we come out
with our new county administration.
There is another item of $1,580.80
spent for the poor. I had no idea Clar
endon had that many paupers living on:
the county's bounty. Where are they?
Surely not in the poor house, then they
must be living with their kith and kin,
and if a proper investigation is made
and the law complied with the number
of beneficiaries may be c'it down. There
is an item of S1:611.35 spent on public
buildings, not on the cc art house. nor
the jail; then whe:'e? According to the
County Commissioners' estimate it will
take $12,215.00 to run the county, and
acording to my calculations, 2 34 mills
will not raise this amount, but it is all
the cloth we are going to give the com
missioners and they must make the
I had prepared a bill looking to the
mprovement of our road system. This
I submitted to the delegation and after
making a few minor changes it was
agreed upon, so on Friday I introduced
it, and had it placed upon the Calendar

met with the County Commissioners,

The resignation of Judge Rt. 0. Purdy
as Judge of the 3rd Circuit, came
somewhat as a surprise, although I
had heard it rumored. As soon as the
news rea2hed Columbia there began at
once by the friends of Solicitor John S.
Wilson, and Hon. T. B. Fraser. of Sum
ter, a systematic canvass of the Gen
eral Assembly, and in my opinion, Sol
licitor Wilson will be Judge Purdy's
successor. Mr. Wilson did not reach
Columbia until Tuesday, and was taken
with a chill and a severe billious attack.
He was removed to the Columbia hos
pital where every attention was given
him, and when I left him, about one
hour before train :". he was on the
road to recovery. He was a very-sick
man, though I did not regard his ill
ness alarming. but fortunately, under
the circumstances, he has very loyal
friends who will care for his interests,
and will never lag, or leave a stone
unturned until they have succeeded in
