rith tie unanimous approval,
nd do not attempt to trim my
ets to do so. I try my best to
se sincere judgment and do what
think the people ought to have
one regardless of whether it
ecets with approval or not. The
rainage bill is a very long one.
nd it was impossible to give it
onsideration in its entirety. I
herefore looked into some of its
rovisions and reached the con
u0sion they would not suit con
itions here, or rather I had a
oubt. and rather than to take
ny chances I had Clarendon ex
mpted in order to see how such
. measure will work elsewhere
rst. and then. it I come to the
onclusion it is a good thing, and
he people have need for such
egislation it will be easy to amend
he Act so as to let it operate in
his county. There is no doubt
hat drainage is a great thing,
hat it not only improves the
ands affected but it improves the
tealth conditions as well. The
>nly question with me is, are our
ople ready for such legislation?
It is a safe assertion that there
ill be no general school legisla
ion at this session, as the Bill
ntroduced in accordance with the
uggestions of the School Law
,ommission has been carried over
o the next session, and the pro
>osed amendment to the High
school Act has been killed.
I have been flooded with appli
ations for the positic- of Notary
?ublie the past week, and in each
ase I referred the applications
o the governor with my endorse
nent: owing to the hitch in get
,ing the law passed, there has
een a little delay about getting

Capt. D. J. Bradham who for
nanv years was one of the trus
ecs of the State Colored College
Lt Orangeburg has resigned, and
he general assembly unanimous

vhether or not Mr. Hodge will

>f white trustees: they are the
-epresentatives of the people of
he State, and responsible for its
inancial management. Mr.Hodge
as always manifested an inter
st in school matters, and I be
eve he would make a first,-ciass
rustee. The fact that he is from
his county. he would have the
.dvantage of the experience of
apt. Bradham who was regard
d by the educational authorities
.s oe of the best trustees the
istitution had. The selection of
Jr. Hdge by the general assem

'here is no complaint of the ad

ut it was thought best by the1
elegvation to get men from sec

A bill seeking to improve the
2ries was up for discussion this
eck which makes practically a
lean sweep of the exemptions
took the position that school
~aahers. ministers and news
aper mn should not be re
ured to serve upon juries, butI
u- senate took a different view
nd included all three to be li
be for jury duty. My reason
r wishing newspaper men ex
mupted was that by the nature
i their business they are dis
alied. for the reason thatj
Ie are in a position to form an!
pinion b)efore the case is tried:
seek all the information they
an get for their newspapers and
naturally form opinions; school
teachers too should be exempt
for the reason that they fre
quently are teaching alone, and
in such a case service upon the
jury would interfere with the
school work, and the same reas
on applies to preachers. There
is a clamor to purify the jury.
but in my opinion, the Act, if it
becomes a law, will not make
the juries any better, and the
verv men the Bill seeks to put
upon juries will be objected to
nine times out of ten.
If I should publish a full ac
count of a crime that has been
committed, the lawyers interest
ed on the other side will certain
ly not want me to sit in judg
ment, and they, are right as it
wouldbeunjust to their cliants.
This letter is not as full as I
usually write, and the reason is
explained in the beginning, there
is very little to write!about that
has not been previously covered
in my communications. How
ever. I will soon be back at my
post, and I shall then, from
time to time discuss the various
measures that have been enact
ed into law.
The mileage break bill has not
found its way upon the statute
books yet, and may not at this
session for the reason that the
railroad commission are opposed
to the bill because it takes from
that office its jurisdiction, and
they are now working upon a
scheme which will remedy some
of the complaints that have been
made along this line. I believe,
however, tat the introduction
of the bill has had a good effect
and will result in some changes
in freight rates whether the leg
islature does anything or not, as
the commission realizes that
such action is demanded.
Tbe mileage bill which passed
the senate is in the house with a
hard fight before it, if it is
reached at all; the conductors
have been up before the house
committee urging the legislature
to let the law alone, and I was
told that traveling men also ob
ject to the contemplated legis
lation. It is my opinion the
railroads will not put into effect
mileage books to be pulled on the
trains, they will take them ofl
entire)y if the bill goes through
as originally introduced.
The bill to prevent the form
ation of "ill shaped counties" has
passed and it will have the effeci
of putting a crimp upon those
who are constantly agitating
new counties, causing the tax
payers a heavy expense for the
gratification of a few persons
who have political or financial
interests to gratify. The Hey
ward county proposition has
cost the people of that sectior
thousands of dollars without re
suIts. 'The Rutledge county af
fair has cost us much money for
nothing, and the contemplated
Beulah county will cost a whole
lot of money before it is ended
if the projectors insist upon
their scheme. I voted for a bill
to put the expense of new coun
ties upon those who are further
ing the scheme because 1 do not
think it is fair to make the old
counties pay for this sort of
