Columbia, January 27th, 1908.
I have to report that the legislature
is travelling along under full sail with
every rope stretched to its utmost, and
after this week it will take day and
night sessions to unload the very heavy
The repeal of the lien law appears
now to be a certainty: it has passed the
House by a large majority and I believe
the Senate will also put itself on record
in favor of eliminating this law from
the statute books. There are a number
of Senators who are dubious of the wis
dom of such legistlation, I among the
number, but in my opinion the senti
ment is so strong for the repeal that it
will be done. The people demand it,
that is to say, the landowners are mak
ing the demand, but I fear they are de
manding that which they will regret.
I hope I am mistaken.
The brain of the State is at work to
devise a law which will meet the ob
jections of both State and Federal
courts -to agricultural labor contracts
and a committee from the House has
reported a bill,- the text of which I
read on the train on my way home Sat
urday night, and I have no hesitancy
in giving it my opinion as a layman
that if it is enacted into law it will not
stand the scrutiny of a court. Its terms
apply to all labor contracts, agricul
tural or otherwise, and permits ad
vances to be made, but the violation of
the contract is a crime punishable by
fine an i prsonment, and after con
viction'the party convicted, upon pay
-'ing the claim against him, is released
from custody. The bill upon its face
acknowledges advances made to be a
debt, and for debt there is no crime. It
also compounds crime by providing
machinery to permit convicts to be re.
lieved by the payment of debt. It will
not pass and should not, because such a
law woulc result in the most damnable
blackmail. It is my judgment that ne
labor contract law can stand the test of
the courts which seeks to jail men for
debt. The bill I have introduced, I am
told, comes as near going between
Judge Brawley's decision and the re
cent decision of our State supreme
court as any of the multiplicity of bills
upon the subject and it is being used
by the Senate judiciary committee as a
basis for a bill it proposes to frame.
I am satisfied there will be no revo.
lutionary liquor legislation. The pres
eat law will be tightened up in some
particulars, but there will be no prohi
bition bill adopted. There is not a day
but what petitions are being sent up to
the desks in both houses for prohibi
tion, and in their zeal some of my pro
hibition friends virtually "stuff the bal
lot box" by signing. several petitions.
I was looking over some of these peti
tions and was amazed to find the name
of a minister of the gospel who is an ac
quaintance of mine, a college grad.se,
and should be an honest man, yet he
has signed more than one of these pro
hibition petitions, and it is common t(
find laymen doing the same. The cause
of nrohibition should stand upon its
moral merits and no element of fraud
should, nor do I believe it will be
tolerated by, the sincere leaders; but
the political-prohibitionists5 will not
only pad petitions, they will resort t(
any means to accomplish their purposes
and to promote their own selfish ends
A nubrof ptitions have been sent
to me from home and in each case ]
have endorsed them with my name as
introducing them by request. They are
now a part of the Senate's records.
The bill introduced by me proviamng
for a license tax upon those solicitmna
or receiving orders for ligalors contain
ing alcohol, is now a third reading bil:
in the Senate and by Tuesday it will
have passed the Senate and be over ii
the House. I was greatly pleased tc
read in the Columbia State a letter frorm
Mrs. Joseph Sprott, State presidento:
the W. C. T. U., endorsing this bill,
and I am sure her endorsement will in
finence a number of members of the
House to vote for it. The only danger
the measure has of passmne lies in those
liwyes in the legislature who represent
foreign liquor houses. They may un
dertake to create the impression that
such a bill is an interference with the
interstate commerce laws, but antici
patmg them I will have printed and~
spread upon the desks of the members
a decision of the United States Supreme
court in the case of Jay Delamater vs.
The State of South Dakota, which up
holds such a law and which decision is
the foundation of my bill. When it be
comes a law the oily tongued whiskey
drummers who cause so much money to
go out of the State will have to graze
in other pastures.

General Stephen D. Lee addressedi
the joint assembly Thursday noon, and
Senator Tillman Thursday night. On
account of an engagement with ladies,
- reviously made, I did not hear the
-bnator's speech, but the papers speak
well of it, and the gene~ comment
the next morning was that it was a
thoughtful, conservative utterance,
and directly opposite the views ex
pressed by Senator Latimer in his
speeches and writings on immigration.
My other bills have all passed the
Senate, and are over in the House, and
will probably become laws the commg~
week. I may have several more hull
to introduce; it depends upon the re
sult of my investigations Monday when
I will remain over at home to get in
formation regarding the county's finan
cal condition. The statement of in
debtedness furnished the delegation
shows a deficit, or hack indebtedness
of $8,700, and I am at a loss to under
stand why this should be. If upon in
vestiation the county is nearly $9000
in arriars, it will be necessary to re
lieve this condition at this session. In
justice to the present board of commis
sioners I will say, that about $3,300 o:
this deficit came to them from a former
administration in the shape of notes
given to the Good Roads Machinery
Company, and a $3,500 note due the
State SiDking Fund for money borrow
ed to pay court expenses, etc. I have
received from Auditor Burgess a letter

The liquor scandals continue to hold
interest, and the graft gang are trying
to work up a sentiment against the
attorney general because of his having
employed Col. T. B. Felder~ of Atlanta,
Ga., to assist him. They say "Lyon
hogo to Georgia to get help, as
thuhSouth Carolina did not have
good lawyers," but such rot will fool
nobody when it is known that the li
quor erew have, in their relations with
the winding up commission of the State
dispensary, retained a large number of
lawyers in Columbia and other cities,
and some of these are also members of
the legislature. who will probably fight
the proposition of making an appropri
ation to defray the Attorney.General's
expenses in bringing to justice men
who have robbed the State- To sensi
ble men it matters not where the assis
tance comes from, whether it comes
from Geergia or South Carolina, but it
so happens that Col. Felder is a South
Carolinian, and is related to the Fel
des of Clarendon I happen to know
the man, although I have not seen him
since coming here. He is an able,
fearless lawyer, and will expose the
names of members of the general -as
sembly who attempt to use their rela
tationi as attorneys ol these liquor con
cerns to thwart the legislation neces
sary to uphold Attorney General
.yon's hands. Information has already
been obtained, sufficient to place some
men in a very undesirable attitude be
fore the people, and if there is any
further attempt made to "tamper with
the jury," to defeat an appropriation to
continue investigations and bring to
justice the 'thieves, the newspaper
reading will become mighty interest
ingand the hypocrisy of some of our
"patriots" will have its mask torn
away, and they will be held up for the
indignant derision and scorn of a trust
ing and outraged people.

At a meeting ofthe Summrerton Bap

tions were tinamimously adopted:
Whereas, Rev. R. A. Sublett hasibeen
a member of Summerton Baptist church
for more than ten years past, ,and in
that relationship and as a minister of
the gospel, has, at all tImes, been con
scentious and consistent in every way,
rand has deported himself as ug erirucht,
honest citizen of the communmty, cioir.
rmuch for its advancemnent by his zeal
j .o be G~ i reol eb this, the mem
bersof Summerton Baptist church, in
meeting assembled; that we have heard
with exceeding regret the recent de
cision of the civil case against our
friend and brother, tried at the last
term of court in this county. And in
view of the wide notoriety given to the
litigation against Rev. R. A. Sublett,
we ask that these resolutions be pub
lished in the News and Courier, The
State, Baptist Courier and the Man
ning Times, and a cop; of same be sent
to Rev. R. A. Sublett.
And in regard to the litigation re
ferred to, we, with due respect to the
constituted authorty, desire to put on
record our convictions, that a grave
error has been committed against Rev.
R. A. Sublett and Mrs. Sublett, and
we confidentIv believe that future
events will bear us out in this belief.
Be it resolved further, that we a a
Church, and as membersof this Church,
do beartily commend Rev. R. A. Sub
lett to any community as an honest,
upright citizen, worthy of respect and
confidence. By order

RHUMA TIC FOLKS
Are You Sure Your Kineys are Well?
.any rheumatic attacks are due to
uric acid in the blood. But the duty of
the kidneys is to remove all uric acid
from the blood. Its presence there
shows the kidneys are inactive. Doa't
dally with "uric acid solvents." You
might go on tildoomsday with them,
but until you cure the kidneys you will
never get" well. Doan's Kidney Pills
not only remove uric acid, but cure th~e
kidneys and then all danger from uric
acid is ended.
Rupert B. Calvo, bookbinder, em
ployed at The State Publishing Co., of
ficial printers for the State of South
Carolina, living at 1010 Lumber St.,
Columbia, S. C., says: I thought I had
rheumatism and treated for it on that
belief. I used all kinds of liniments.
The pain was in my back and in .my
hips clear to the shoulders. The hmn
ments did nogood and I took to blood
medicines but they did not help me, I
took a long trip in hopes that the
change of climate might help me. I
was away for three months but could
see no change for the better, I heard of
Doan's Kidney Pills and determined to
try them, and got a box at a drug store
they completely removed the pains out
of my back and I have not felt a touch
of the old trouble since I used them."
