COLVrMBt. S. C., Feb. 4th. 1911.
The general assembly is now on the
home stretch with the heaviest calen
dars of any year previous, but most of
the Bills are of a local nature, and these
will have but little contests. The gen
eral laws of most imuortance to be acted
unon will have opposition: among these,
is the general school law which is sug-'
gested by a commission to frame a law
to govern t common schools, and if
this bill gets through as it is written it
will revolutionize the schoc' laws of the
State. take atay the .overning power
from the people. -nd place that power
In the h of the State board. I favor
many of the features of the Bill pro
posed, but am opposed to those features
which deprives the people from a voice
in the control of the local schools. I
shall oppose giving any board the power
to select a superintendent of the county
schools, for 1 think it will make dis
satisfaction, and do more harm than
good: if there is anythingr the people
are jealous of. it is their right of self
government, and when it comes to a
matter of placine their scboo's in the
hands of strangers they wifl resent it
and give trouble. The new school bill I
is a very long document, -,here is not aI
member of the general assembly who
has had the time. nor the inclination.
to read it. in its entirety, therefore. I
have suggested to many of the members
that it would be best to carry the Bill
over to the next session along with the
"Inheritance Tax Bill" so that the
members may hare an opportunity to
study these measures at home. I think
their importance demands the most
careful cooaideration. The report of
the comptroller general shows a dodg
lug of taxation on the part of banks.
especially in Charleston it is shown
that a certain bank pays taxes on only
about three per cent- of its capital
stock. Mr. Mitchum has taken bold of
the proposition in the shape of "A Joint
Resolutioo" whereby it is proposea to
get the attorbey general behind these
tax-dodgers. I am not silfciendy in
formed to know just what the condition1
Is. The following is - Mr. Mitchum's
resolution. I am informed that a sub
stitute has been offered having thesanc
tion of the aLtor ney general which seeks
to give that of!cial more power. This
was offered, I think, by Mr. Irby, of,
Laurens, and I thinel' it has Mr. Mitch
uum's approval, so if anything comes of'
this agitation Mr. Mitchum shares in
'the credit. The following is the Mitchum

The clerkc of the board of county,
commissioners has sent me:a statement
of the financial condition of the cuntyI
which is not as complete as I s.hould
like however, it is gettiing~ late, in tbhe
seasion and the supply bill is ready for
con-ideration, so I called the delega
tion together and we made up the sup
ply for the year 1911, as follows: Or
dinary county pur poses four and one-I
half mills, and for past indebtedness
one-half of one mill. We also speci
fied that the four and one-half mills
was to nay salaries, the roads. bridges.
courts and the other ordinary expenses
of the county, and we especially men
tioned a provision that the supervisor
shall not allow any claim, or the- treas
urer pay any claim which is not au
thorized by law. In making up the$
provision I had it written so that itI
would be clear and distinct that no
money should hereafter be paid out of
the treasury for detective work until
authority was give~n for the same, but
after the delegation agreed to this,
Mr. Mitchum reconsidered, and want
ed the provisihn stricken out, as in his'
judgment it would be construed a slap6
at certain individuals who were instru
mental in getting the commissioners t'
allow the claims for -detective work.".
After some discussion of the matter we
agreed to strike out the words "detee-1
tzve work" ana insert the words "no
authorized by law," which means that,
the commissioners. before they can pay
out any of the count's money for "de
tective work" in the future. they must
first get legislative authory. If the!
regular authoriti-s, clerk of court, and
the sheriff come to the conclusion thatI
in order to have the liquor laws en
forced in this county that they must
have the services of detectives, and
they will make a requisition for the
authority it will have my most rdspect
ful conideration, but I shall never1
consent for private individuals to put
the county to expense w ithout authori
ty, and then when' the expense has 6
been incurred, to have them draw j
money from the treasury, as it seems I
they have done in the past. I am in-1
formed the county commissioners havei
given warrants for somew~here in the
neighborhood of $1,000 to pay det- i
tives, or rather to reimburse certain 6
private parties for the money they !I
paid to these "sleuths." and I am also o
informed that because of t'ais outlay I1
some salaries have been held up for L
lack of funds in the treasury. There-fi
fore the provision mentioned in the1 1
supply bill seeks to prevent are peti-<
tionoof this paying out of monies with
no authority in law. I do not wish to l
be understood as being opposed to the i
enforcement of the law, I want it en
forced, but in a lawful manner. I do
not want to establish the precedent a
which will permit private parties as- t:
naming to incur an expense upon their
own motion, and then make a raid upon
the treasury to reimburse themselves.
If we allow, without questuon. the priv. a
iege to private parties puttin:.r try
county to expense without authoriza-:
tion mn one instance, it needs no specil
wisdom to see where it miight lead u~s
to-. any man could go ahead for h~ a own 1
fron* of hi.s propertv, and then make M
)Ut : claim against the county. and t!
ha-e it paid rerardless of cost, or. he 1
could employ a detective to secaro' erV:
det:ce against a darkey who roh.-di h i
hen roost. and - ake the county "couth n
up" for the expen..e. there are many It
ways the treasurv could be depleted il
abnecessarilv if private parties were e
permuited to) draw without autnority. o
To put a stop to such a practice i4 why o
we prohibit the cotnmissione!r, from 11
ailowing any claim not providid for in
the law. and the navment of detectiv '
is not provided for. and will not be un- P

I went over to the House this morn
ing to see what, I could do towardsI
getting my fish Bill up for considera
tion, and when it was finally reached on
the Calendar Mr. Stevensou. of Chester
field objected. Under the rules one ob
jection prevented cor.sideration at that
time. I co..ferred with Mr. Stevenson
and he withdrew his objection. and
when the Calendar was tinished. and
the bill was recurred to. tbe Speaker
announced the object-ion was withdrawn
and the consideration would be taken
up. whtreupon Mr. Mitchum arose a':d r
informed the Speaker that Mr. Steveo
son told him he would renew the objec
tion, but Mr. Stevenson had left the ball
and the Speaker ruled thar. the Bill
wonld be proceed'd with u-1eess there
ws objection, whereupon anothe'- tmetm
her objected, not that be was opposed
but be did so because Mr. Stevenson
was not present, and he objectedt asa
matter of courtesy to Mr Stevenson..
However, had not the delay occurred I
am sure the bili would hav-e ttone to its
thlird reading, and hence- out of danger
of being killed. I hunted up .\r. Stev
enson and he assured me that he would
not try to kill the Bill. but that he
wished to consult Mr. Odemt of his dele
gatiou to know whether or not Chester
teld shall remain in the iBill. If it i
decided by his delegation to retain titetr ~
county he will assist in ;.:s.ng the Bi!!
but should t bei decide that Cr.easterlield|
does not want it they will amnend bI.
:aking that eruty ant atal let. the lH 1I
pass. so I think t he Bill will ge:. throug b
:ext wee-k: the Clarendoen delegation ~
wi watch it closely, and I requested
the delegationts of the counties named
in the Bill to also watch it and see to tt K
that it does not die on the Calendar, I
and also to not permit to get side- I
tractked by objections, or ame-ndmnt s~
! have receiaver. mtany applications for| t
Notary Public. some of which are ac- k
cotpanied with a pe-ti tion. This is un- I
necessary. The- Act as ;,eaaaed in the
Senate re-quire-s the- applicant to state
L which race hec belongs, and that he.
should be recommended by one twem
ber of the delegtation. Some have senta
me money to pay the fees for the com
mission. This I have returned, and
when they get notice of apipointmnt .|
the notice will state the amount of feec. I
and this can he sent directly to t he l
Secretary of State with the required I
nath. All applications received by me!
-xcepting one, have been filed with the &
Goernor and have my endorsement. I
The one I did not tile I could noat en

What is known as the "high s'choosl
Act" met its deserved fate in the House
and thereby saved the Senate from the
neesity of doing the slaughter. Tbi
Bill sought to lower the limit of town
to participate in the High School a p- -
p-opriation, and i f it had ;>awaed it wou'd
have destro~ed the school at .\iannin
ci far as the high schoo: departmenti
toncerned. In destraying this. the
other branches wound have- been seri
usly crippled, and this damage would
have been done to the scehoaols wher
the population is le.. th.wn 2~.00 with
being of no practica! helpi in towns of
ess than 1000 as was the limitation.
The S&nate committee on tinance has
ndertaken to provide for the distribu
ion of the $3:f0,000 in the '.reasury from
he dispensary fund. We d.-cided it
would not be the part of wisdomn togeive
his entire amount to the schools in one
rear, so) we propose to give it to thetm
51I0,000 a year for thr-ee years. TheF
public schools will receive from the
itate treasury th is year $60.000 for thea
ural schools. $20,000 for aiding in the
uiding of the rur.dl schooils and $60000d
or the hbgh schools. besides, fro:n the
lispensary fund another $100.000 for the
>ublic schools. it, does seem to me that'
here should not be any complaint of
ack of aid to the schorus this year. if

I also had Clarendon exempted fror

>r all able-bodied conviets. regardles4
f the length of sentence. to serve up
n the chatugangs of the county in
rhich they are convicted. My objec
ion to the bill is this. under the pres
ut law all conviets under ten years go
pon, the g;ang, all over to the peniten
iarv. I wan:, to let the law alone so far
s this <ountv is concerned. becau3:
hen a man .omrAmis a crime so, seri
us that he inust get a life sentence or
ver ten years, he is usually of the
cry vicious sort, and the sentence te
be gang of such a character would
mount to a release practically; it i
11 the gang can do now to preven:! :s
apes, but if murderers, incendiaries,
apists are to go on the county gan!
iso. I ask to ue excused from having
betm with us. Thin too. if all convic-t
re to go to the gangs, the penitentiary
ai:nt as well be abolished, the state
irms sold, and the whole system for
e prevention of crime revolutionized.

This legislature will go down in his- t
tory as the first ''S2,000,000 legislature." 1
There ie this to say, that much of this i
inoney goes to permanent building and
that the State Hospital for the Insane
comes in for a very largfe share, made
necessary by the expansion of the insti- T
tution. There has recently been pur
chased 2000 acres of land for the asylum.
upon which new buildings are to be r
erected at once for the accommodation
of the afflicted ones. Then, too. the 1
schools and colleges come in for a bir
share, and there is over a quarter of a
million for the pensions which of itself
is a tremendous item in the budget.
The demands of the people are great
and conditions tend to make the de
mands greater every year: unless there
is a halt the taxes wili climb beyond the t
reach of the masses.
Miss Hannah Plowden, who distin
guished herself last year in the corn
raising contest, has been awarded a
