Columbia, S. C.. .January -th,
This week has been frittered
away in doing next to nothing,
but perhaps it is better so. be
cause the calendars are loaded
with bills that in my humble
judgment are not necessary and
can be well dispensed with, how
ever. the authors of these meas
ures will not accept my opinion,
-and taey may have the same view
about the bills I have introduced.
notwithstanding mine are local
in the-ir nature.
The measures introduced by
me are now over in the House
and will be looked after by the
House members. We are to have
a delegation meeting early next
week. at which the matter of the
tax levy must be considered. A
statement was sent to me from
the county commissioners, and
if it i6 correct, we are up against
a situation that must be met.
There is a deficit of about $3,000.
and I am informed the board did
all iu their power to save the
county money, but with all of
their care and economy -he coun
ty is behind in the demands upon
it. To meet the deficiency it will
be absolutely necessary to in.
crease the levy at least one mill,
and with this increase it will not
be assuring that there will e
sufficient funds to meet the coun
ty's expenses. But the matter
giving us serious concern is the
fact that this real estate assess
ing year. and if the lands are as
sessed higher the increased levy
may prove a hardship upon the
taxpayers, and this we wish to
avoid, now if the Legislature
would consent to permit the leyy
to be made after the lands have
been assessed we could tell ex
actly how much the property
valnation would be. and could
thent fix thie levy accordingly
without doing the taxpayers an
injustice. My readers will ap
precite the embarrassing posi
tion the delegation is placed in
under the circumstances. There
is tot a man on Clarendon's dele
gation who wants to raise the
levy, alk of them are taxpayers
and lhke everybody else feel the
burden of heavy taxation, but
conditions must be met as they
exist, not as we would have them.
It will not do to allow deficien
cies to accumulate simply to de
ceive the taxpayers that the del
egation is holding down taxes by
refusing to meet the expenses of
the cdunty government. To keep
the levy as it is when it has been
demonstrated that the county's
income is not enough to pay the
claims against it would be doing
the people no good, and in my
-pi on would be harmful; the
debts must be paid and delay on
ly puts off the evil moment. Now
what shall be done is for the del
egation to consider at the meet
ing referred to. Some will ask
what becomes of the money? The
amiswer is not for the delegation
to give, it has nothinxgto do with
the disbursement, all it can deal
with is the condition of the treas
ury anduthe demands made upon
it by the approved claims of the
County Commissioners, and as a
Representative and a taxpayer I
am satisfied these officers have
guar-ded the treasury as best they
could and did not approve a claim
but what was jus&. The trouble
lies in the falling off of income
several thousands of dollars, this
the people must have considered
when they by their votes cut off
agood amount o1 money that for
merly went to holding the levy
down, it is not a question now1
whether or not they have been
repaid in good order, the whole
thing is, how can the county gov
ernment be run without the in
come formerly had, unless the
tax rate is raised?
Mr. Green has a bill in the
House relatinig to the Paxville
school district and as soon as it
comes over to the Senate 1 will
push it through as rapidly as pos
sible. Last week a school bill of
mine was se-at over to the House,
and when it came up for consid
eration, under the head of uncon
tested matter, Mr. McMahon of
Richland objected, and this sent
it over for future consideration
and delayed its passage, but Mr.
Scarborough got in his inning
when Mr. McMahon had a local
measure that he was Lanxious to
pass, and Mr. Scarborough ob
jected, McMahon tried to get him
to withdraw his objection but;
Scarborough reminded him of thej
t'-atment he gave his Senator's
local measure, so theme was noth
ing tor McMahon to do but grin1
and bear it, I guess the next time
he will be more cautious how he.

to him. The bill wi'l probably
be passed next week. Mr. Dingle
has promised to watch it and the~
others will also .look after it.
At the request of a strong pe
tition from the Summerton sec
tion I have a bill on the Calendar,!
providing for a heavy license to
sell dynamite. the object being to
try to put a stop to the system or
practice of adling the tish in our
streams. I regard this an evil
that should be suppressed, and if
it is not, in a very short time
there will be no dish. The com
plaints are coming to me f rom all
sections that the dynamiting of
fish has become a serious condi
tion. not only devastating the
fish but impairing the health in
communities by the thousands of
fish destroyed and left to decay.
If the bill passes it will have the
effect of putting a stop to the sale
of dynamite and other explosives.
except gun powder, and thereby
make it inconvenient to those
who engage in this bad practice.
I have a joint resolution on the
Senate Calendar. a third reading
bill providing for the paying of
the attorney's fees and expenses
in the matter of the Rutledge
county tight. J. H. Lesesne Esq..
made the tight before the Board
of Canvassers and won out, when
the Rutledge people appealed
the cause to the Supreme Court
Mr. Lesesne was again sustained.
and thereby saved to Clarendon
county about $1,500 a year in tax
es. Mr. Lesesne was put to con
siderable expense besides his val
uable service, and to ascertain
what would be reasonable to
charge. the matter was referred
to good lawyers and they gave as
their judg ment lie was entitled to
at least $500. this I took upon my
self to cut down to $400. and I am
sure the people will ,ladly sus
tain this when they consider the
amount of labor entailed, and the
expense of appearing before the
several boards and courts.
There has been several bills,
very drastic in their nature, in
troduced for the Audubon Socie
tv, and so far they have failw. of
Ipassage. One bill tixing a license
to be paid by persons owning
guns. and making it a misdemean
or to own a gun without having a
license, and the carrying a gun
even upon one's own land was
evidence that the gun was being
used for hunting purposes, in
violation of law. It was urged
that this bill sought to deprive
a man of privileges which has
been enjoyed always. in the in
terest of the gun clubs and the
owners of the hunting preserves;
it was shown that large areas of
forest lands are being leased by
non-residents, men who come in
to the State for a few days sport.
and in order that these magnates
may pay a large rentai the own
ers of these lands would prohibit
the shooting of game at all. The
bill was indefinitely postponed,
which in my judgment was a
proper disposition of it. The ten
dency of Legslation is to restrict
tipe-honored privileges, not for
the public good always, but with
a siniO ;r motive-to stop the or
diary herd from hunting so that
the favored few may have a muon
oply of the game. It was sug
gested to those who wish to de
prive the general public of sport,
that they introduce a bill prohi
biting the shooting of birds for a
period of three years. not allow
ig anybody to kill birds, but
they object, if they are to be com
pelled to stop shooting on the
lands they own or lease, so it is
evident to my mind that the ef
fort to secure prohibitive gaming
legislation is not in the interest
of bird protection as much as it
is in the interest of the rich non
resident sportsmen, and this was
the view of thmose opposing the
Some of our Legislators seem
to think that they are sent to Co
lumbia to convert the government
into a state of holiness by putting
upon the statute books, laws to
restrict everything, they learn of
some objectionable thing to them
and to remedy it they would make
a law against it. There was a
bill prohibiting the playing of
pool in public places by boys un
der eighteen years of age, hn:l
the bill passed in that shape
young men who frequent the par
lors of refined social clubs and1
Christian association halls would
have been deprived of the nieas
ure they enjoy in a social scien
tific game. The game of pool is
not a gambling pleasure unless
one makes it so. betting can be
done. on anything. checkers,
chess or any other pastime, and
because forsooth some men have
bet on a pool game, good, hard
working boys are to be deprived
of the pleasure, even where it is
known they are above gamblhng.
We know that there are places in
cities and towns where boys con
gregate to play pool. .ind they

it is the duty of the town author.

not the duty, and it is unbecom

means whereby it can legislate
morals into its citizens. The bill
referred to was so amended that
those who opposed it in its orig
inal form could vote for it. The
amendment fixes it so it does not'
apply to places where the game
is played without a toll or charge

Messrs. Selvyn Dingle, Willie
Frierson, Jeff M. Davis and J. H.
Hilton paid us a visit last Thurs
day, and they seem to enjoy their
experience in seeing the general
assembly in session.
Hon. John S. Wilson was re
elected Judge of the Third Cir
cuitwithout opposition. His nom
ination in the joint session was
seconded by a great many of the
other counties, which was a com
pliment to the man.
This week might go down in
history as Junket week, the gen
eral assembly upon the invitation
of the city of Charleston went to
that city on Wednesday, and they
had a most enjoyable time of it.
The members are singing Char
leston's praises all the time since
they came back. I did not get to
Charleston, having started but
on learning of illness in mv fam
ily, I stopped over at home, and
returned back to Colum'ia the
same night ahead of the Legisla
tive special. Friday another ex
cursion was given to the body,

ness and to go over the books of
the county officers with a view of
making myself more familiarwith
the conditions, that I may the
more clearly impart the informa

At the request of our Clerk of
Court I have introduced a bill to
amend the present law relating
the paying of witnesses in crimi
nal cases. As the law stands. a
man may be bound over to appear
as a witness, come to court at ex
pense and if the case is thrown
out by the grand jury, or nol
prossed the man forced to come
will not be paid because the judge
has not heard the evidence and
therefore cannot certify that the
witness was material.
The state wide prohibition bill
is scheduled to come up Tuesday
1st.. when it is hoped there will
be a fall Senate and the matter
settled one way or another. For
several days past there have been
a number of lady lobyists button
holeing the members to vote for
the state-wide bill. ordinarily I
endeavor to be respectful to la
dies when they are for a cause
and give them more of my time
i listening than I would to men
but I do wish they would realize
that a man is no child to be coax
ed with honied words, nor is he
to be drarged from a position
taken by persistence, and when
these fail, threaten. These well
meaning ladies Irom Georgia and
North Carolina, employed by as
sociations, should at least be con
tent to desist when a gentleman
kindly, politely, but tirmly gives
his answer, they are not however,
and they conduct their efforts so
that it ~can only result in avoid
ing themn to keep from being an
noyed. I was very busy on last
Thursday and was sent for to go
into a committee room, and upon
entering the room these ladies
through their spokeslady told me
their minion, I informed them
what my position was politely
but positively and it only had the
effect of bringing upon myself
the entreaties of tbe whole com
pany, I did not care to argue and
after reiterating my attitude, I
asked to be excused. It was no
use, I had to stand there and lis
ten~ to their story over and over
again until a friend who had a
similar experience happened
along, looked into the door, saw.

ell, whereupon I took my de
parture breathing easy once
more. Now I do not believe these
people are helping their cause
one bit, but if they are on salar
ies, they are surely earning their
The result of the state-wide
measure remains to be seen, both
sides are confident of victory, and
although the bill is set for Tues-1
day I have no idea of a vote be
ing reached on that day, and if
the majority present force a vote
some one of the minority will
probably vote with the majority
in order to mov-e for a reconsid
eration, and this we look for
every day until both sides are
satistied that it has spent its
strength- If the state-wide bill
fails at this session then the is
sue will be a live one next sum

politicians the State Executive
Demoratinc Comnmittee should
provide a box in the primary.
and iet the majority vote govern
as a pledge. In this way men can
be chosen for office without by
pocriy or straddling awhse
keg. If a majority vote in theI
separate box for prohibition, re
gardless of his personal views,
he would be pledged to vote pro
hibition, and visa versa. No man
wvould think of violating this
pledge. if the people of his couux
ty specitically instructs him.

A good meaning minister call

the Senator of this county sai d.I
when the State-wide prohibition
bil comes to a vote leave the
Senate Chamber without voting,".
although he admitted that to doi
so would be arant cowardice and
hypoc-isy. There is no man who
as a gi-eater respect for minis
ers thani Clarendon's Senator,.;
d none who would be more de
igxied to have his course ap
oved by them. but if he acted
upon the suggestion of this well1
meaniig man lie would deser-ve
-ontempt. in fact, he would feel:p
:i cotemipt for himself. The tac
it or im plied agreement made last:
m~in by which fiften out of
twenty-one counties voted out
the dispensary system, and left
six counties as they were, should
stand so far as the present Leg
islature is concerned, if not,
where was the sense in forcing
the wet counties to a vote with
out jeopardizing the dry counties,
if the Legislature did not mean
to abide the result? Suppose after
a vote, which resulted in a coun
ty going dry, would not the Pro
hibitionists feel outraged if the
Legislature forced the sale of liq
uor upon them anyway? When
the question was submitted years
ago and the Prohibitionists won,
and TilIman forced t. i dispensary
on the people. did not the minis
try with few exceptions,denounce
it as a high handed outrage of the
people's rights? Did not they
from one end of the State to the
other say that the Legislature
nad stultified its-lf and betrayed
the confidence of the people? If
it was a betrayal of the people's
contidence then, why would it not
be a similar betrayal of the peo
ple of the six counties after the
question was submitted by the
Legislature for them to decide?
We honestly believe, as many
Prohibitionists believe, that un
der the circumstances the Prohi
bitionists had better stand by
their act of last year, rather than
have even the appearance of bad
faith, for once the masses lose
faith in their professions, their
cause will suffer by it. Were we
anxious to see prohibition sound
its death knell, we would vote to
disregard the implied promise
made last year, let prohibition
come and make a fight charging
the Prohibitionists with trickery
and dishonesty. The question
then is, can good, sincere men,
afford to have their honesty ques
tioned? And we will say here,
there are many very sincere Pro
hibitionists who would deplore
the enactment of a State-wide
prohibition law at this session,
for the reason, they realize, that
in the fact of the Legislature per
mitting a vote in the wet coun
ties, it can be construed as a mor
al obligation to let things remain
for another Legislature.

The Columbia State of yester

in its date lines. On the first

There is a peculiar muteness
with The State of Columbia
when it is poiitely asked: "WVho

have been told by it they are

The Interstate Commerce Com
mission in a recent decision says
the rule of transportation corn
panies that unless each package
in a shipment be "plainly and in
delibly marked so as to show the
name ot the consignee and the
details of their destination, they
will not be received for transpor
tation." The Commission further
says: "It is the ut~doubted right
of a carrier to decline to receive
for transportation any merchan -
dise not so marked. As a prac
tical matter shippers in their
own interest ought to mark their
packages plainly, and carriers
ought not to be compelled to ac
cept shipments not so marked."
This alludes principally to liquor.
The State Supreme Court has
handed down a decision in one of
the liquor drummrer cases, in
u..ich it has sustained the statute
that forbids the soliciting of
orders in the State for the sale
of liquor, and the decision de
elares that a person violates the
law if he delivers a letter which
solicits liquor business. Accord
ing to this cornstruction, distrib
uting the literature of whiskey
houses is in violatie i of the law.
We sincere-ly hope that the mat-'
er will not rest where it is. as

would like for the case to

Summertonians are not habitually
given to star-gazin. considering them
selves responsible fo-r more prac.ticable
affairs in the daily %:.tik of life. yet we
find ourselves having greatness thrust
upon us in ihe astronomical world in the
observation of the- recent comet. Ante
dating by a day all reported observa
tions, several of our citizens (who have,;
by the way, seen many before.; saw this i
particular spectacle of interest on Fri
day evening. So far we have noted ob
servations having only been made on
Saturday at other places. This is no
doubt one of the many pointers toward
the conspicuous position Summerton
must eventually occupy.
We have previour,!y had occasion to
mention the tendency on the part of our
farmers to appreciate the value of build
ing up small industries. An initance of
this recently brought to our notice is
the canning of vegetables which a few
of our farmers are engaging in with
great success. Mr. William Felder.
quite a large farmer of this section, has
for a number of years done this to some
extent, but this year he has far surpass
ed any previous record: and our town
people are beginning to rely on him for
their canned tomatoes for winter use.
One of the expected enterprises of the
near future will be a canning factory.
As the planting season approaches.
many preparations for cultivation are
apparent. From early morning until
dusk wagons may be seen passing load

as well as farm implements of all kinds.
In fact, the Hardware Company of this
place is fast becoming the supply house
