was calculated to shake up his' hearer
to some extent. H is subject wats "Goo
Will to Mien," and in the cour-.e of ai

decadence of hospitality in this e ountry

The Zneral asemhbiv for Pill
conveind Tuesday, loth. Th.
entire Clarendon delegation were
present at the opening to respond
to the roll call and to be sworn in.
The lirst week of the session
has ended with practically noth
ing done but to etfect the organ
ination, the appointment of con
wittees. and the introduction of
bills. There are many who can
not understand why it is that it
takes a whole week to get the
general assembly in working or
der. but if they could be present
and see the two bodies and learn
how the work has to be divided!
up for facilitating the labors of
the members they would come to
the conclusion that a legislature
is (f considerable magnitude and
that it must have a system. or it
would soon get into a ..ass of con -
fusion. This is the case with
every legislative body in the
world. it has always been so and
it will continue to be so.
The Clarendon delegation re
ceived the following comminittee
appointments: Senator Appelt. I
Chairman of Railroads and In
ternal Improvements, Printing,
Legislative Library, Finance.
Education. The selection of
Clarendon'ssenator for the chair
manship of the railroad com
mittee is appreciated by him, as
it is one of the most important
committees in the senate, of equal
importance as is the educational
and the finance committees, and
which will keep him busy during
The House members are as
signed as follows: Mr. Richard
son on Ways and Means. Thisl
committee has to do with the
finance and bears the same rela
tion as the senate finance com
mittee. The selection of Mr.
Richardson to this place is very
complimentary in that it is his:
first experience as a legislator.
Mr. Mitchum has a number of
assignments, namely, Education.
Legislative Library, State House
and Grounds. Public Buildings.
Mr. Reaves also has several
assignments. Public Schools.
Banking and Insurance. Peniten
tiary, Offices and Officers. Clar
endon fared well all the way
through and i, might be well to
explain the reason Mr. Richard
son has but the one committee.
This committee has to do with
the tinances of the State. arrange
the tax levies and other matters
which will keep it busy without
its members being loaded up with
other assignments;there are some
members of the Ways and Means
committee on other committees
but these are old and experienced i
Miss M1ay Strange has taken
ell to her work in the engross
ng department, and the head of;
hat department told the writer:
tat he regards her one of the
:est in his department, which was
very gratifying to the delegation
ad especially to the one who i
esponsible for her appointment.
Among the visitors to the capi
ol this week from Clarendon
ere Messrs. John Childers.
rank Rawlinson and John Horg
on from Davis Station, and Webb
Sprott of Jordan. They camne to
Columbia in an automobile.
Mr. R. C. Richardson. accom
anied by his wife and Miss Deas,
amne uip to see the "Merry
Widow," and Miss Bertha Davis
.ith Mr. Felix Dingle were also
f the party. Mrs. Richardson
has many friends and relatives
n Columbia who showed much
attention, so much so that w~e
elieye she was loath to go back
o the farm. It is always a pleas
ure to see the folks from home.
Mr. Mitchum has introduced a
bil l.ooking towards limiting the
mount of money going to Clenm
on College fron: the fertilizer
tag tax, and to provide for some
> this money to go to the public
;chools to support a primary
~ourse in agriculture. I have
iot had an opportunity to see
m-. Mitchum's bill because it is:
til in the hands of the comn
nittee. and has not been printed.:
L-'rom its title I judge it to be a
ood bill and should become a'
law. but anything touching Clecm
on which seeks to cut its reve
ue is a proposition that has so
)ften been tried only to meet with
failure that I would not venture
prediction as to the outcome of
iis attempt. There should be
oe war- of getting a pull at
his vast amount of mionev paid
v the farmers for the tax onl
Wrtiizer-s but whenever it hias
een tried the Clemson authori-0
Lies have always managed to con
ince the majority this money
ightfully belongzs to the coilhg-.
I'he privilege tax is a big thim.
ut so is Clemson501 college: si-v
ral etforts have bee-n made to
et some of this money fori thme
olhic schools before. buLt ai
though it has al ways fai led Mr.
Mitchum has had some assurance
)f suport for his bil11. and lie
~eems to be contidenit that tue
:ommittee to whom the. bill was:
referred will *-ive him a favor
tle report. At p-resent I undlgir
~tandl it has been referred to in'
ittorney greneral for- his opiniii
s to th'e constitutionaliitv of such
t measure. JIust why it was so,
efered [ caniiot see for th
[louse has a judiciary comnmitte,
:opoe entirely of lawyers
md it seemsli to meC thiey sinu
ae passed upon thme legal staitus
f such a bill. Then. too.. the
ezmon at thi lties. are toi be
n iVen anl o.pportunity to he hear i
> ,-ore tile commi.ittee. anio meenCL
Jepends upon the showing they
make as to whaPt thle report wil
be. should. however, the com
uittee report favorably it would
not promise success for time nl
hcause the whole q1uestion would
be thrashed out on the Iloor of
the House before it can ever
com to the Senate. Thlerefor-e
I 1elieve mr. St bill V
have a stumpy road to travel.
The Senator has introduced
bill for the eimination of the oi
joctional features of t1. gam
law. and he went before the con
mittee to defend it. There h
wet Mr. James H. Rice. the Chil
Game Warden of the State. t
argue the matter out. Afte
hearing both of us the committe
asked tnat the bill he deferred t
see if a :teneral bili that will b
gotten u1 will not be agreeab!4
so the further hearing was pos1
poned until some time next weeb
The Senator has also intrc
duced a bill relating to tish whic
has the approvai of the Williams
bur- deiegation. and M1r. Wilso
of that delegation has introduce
a dupli':ate of the bill in th
House'. I will stat' that Messrs
Recaves and Richardson are wait
ing for these game and fish bill
to help get them through, and
suppose Mr. "litchual will alsi
support them. but as yet I hav,
not heard from him on this sub
ject and do not know his views
I am satistied from what I hav,
seen already that the delegatioi
will work togctherharmoniously
eac.i man i left to vote as he see
tit. but all are desirous to hav
such local letgislation as will b
of benefit to the county.
[ have withheld the county ap
pointruents for the! incoming Gov
ernor's consideration. He wil
be inaugurated on the 17th, afte
which I !:bali present him witl
the names of those chosen in th<
primary for appointive offices
and the deiegation will have
meeting to take up the matter o
appointing two county commis
sioners, an! tie township asses
The feeling among the mem
bers at this time is to have
hort session and to do very littli
eneral legislation. I am happj
to say the liquor question has no
been mentioned, and I do not be
lieve it will be. With that ou
f the way I do not. see any rea
son why the legislature canno
finish within thirty days.
On the luthl, which is not
legislative day. as it is Lee'
birthday. t!-e generai assembli
has accepted an invitation to g<
to Winthrop College. This tril
is not at the expense of the Stat
nor the college as many think
and when the legislature goes or
a legal holiday it does not cos
the taxpaVers aniything. and a]
this opposition manifested on rol
:-aIl is simply a play to the gal
leries for the benefit of those wh<
do not knov: the true situation
The m..tter of a road law an<
,ou ntv -rovernment will have th
attention of the delegation nex
week as I am waiting for a bil
that I have askedi a lawyer at th<
anning Bar- to prepare. Thi:
~entleimn has had occasion t<
