SCORES VOLUNTEER SYSTEM
Nothing More Than Mere Chance
Says C-en. Wood In Charleston.
Mien Must Be Trained.
Charleston.-The volunteer system
was severely scored and characterized
as nothing more than dependence on
mere chance by Maj. Gen. Leonard
Wood, U. S. A., commanding the De
partment of the East in. an address
to a big mass meeting at the Hi'oern
ian ill. The volunteer spirit is fine,
he said. but undependable. It has al
ways failed this nation, although not
many know it, because the histories
do not teach us the unpleasant facts,
he continued. Soldiers of the War Be
tween the States knew it, and know
that both the North and the South
fell back on the draft system be
fore many months of war.
Reviewing the wars of this nation
to prove the unreliability of the volun
teer system, Gen. Wood declared that
the United States had never engaged
in war with a first class military pow
er unassisted and that United States
armies had met defeat in engage
ments with a force numbering little
more than half their own.
In advocating federal control of the
National Guard, Gen. Wood declared
that the movement to put this force
under the federal government was no
reflection on the members or the of
ficers of the institution and that the
defects of the National Guard were
not the fault of officers or men, -but
were the simple results of too many
commanding officers. He declared
that the government wanted every of
ficer and every man of the National
Guard, rank for rank, in its plans for
Citizens training camps ~and their
work were told of in the latter part
of the general's address. ,He urged
the people of this- section to respond
to the call for volunteers in the camp
-as they had always .responded when
the country called -upon them.

Appropriation Is $2,423,877.24
The aggregate of the appropriation
bill, as recommended by the senate
'finance committee, will be $2,423,
over the aggregate of the appropria
tions as adopted by the house.
The finance committee provides for
increases in more than 40 Items and
for decreases in five items, not includ
ing the large change of $50,000 in
crease made in the appropriation for
the State Hospital for the Insane.
The greatest alteration is made in
the sections for pensions, where in
addition to decreasing the amount of
pensions there is a $1,000 decrease in
the item of salaries; an increase of
$1,000 in maintenance and $1,100 is
repairs is provided for.
The finance committee also recom
mends two changes is the section on
public schools by decreasing the con
tingent fund for needy schools from
$50,000 to -$40,000 and by increasing
the appropriation for graded and con
solidated schools from $110,000 to
$125,000. This change conforms in
part with recommendations from the
state superintendent of education.
The committee leaves in the pro
vision creating emergency funds of
$50,000 for the enforcement of the
prohibition laws and $25,000 for the
payment of the shortage in militia
An increase of $14,000 is recom
mended 4n the section providing for
the maintenance and- the erection of
buildings at the State reformatory in
Florence, over which until recently
there has been some misunderstanding
as to the necessity of state aid.
Having passed the Padgett substi
tute, requiring the fiscal agent of the
state board of charities and correc
tions to investigate the financial con
dition of the parents of boys and girls
attending state colleges, the finance
committee has recommended an in
crease of $2,945 for that institution
A similar increase of $3,000 is pro
vided for the state tax commission.
Throughout the bill the finance com
mittee in its proposed amendments
shows a tendency to increase salaries
and to provide for a 'number of inci
dental items; appropriations for re
pairs have also been increased over
the figures the house set.
Supports Two-Quart Measure.
The house refused on a yea and nay
vote of 55 to 44 to recommit the bill
by Senator Carlisle limiting the
amount of liquor to two quarts and of
beer to 60 pints a month. Opposition
to the stringency of the measure gain
ed strength over night and many
staunch supporters of prohibition voted
in favor of having the bill amended
so as to strike out some of the pro
visions that escaped amendment on
The bill provides among other sim
ilar stiplations that a person carry
ing whiskey in his satchel must have
it so stated on the satchel.
Mr. Searson moved to recommit the
"two-quarts-a-month" bill on the
ground that the bill carries a provision
that in case a person carries liquor in
his suitcase he must so state on the
suitcase. He argued that women fre
quently carry a flask while traveling.
He sa . that the electorate did not
want such restrictions placed on the
prohibition it voted for.
The senate placed its approval up
on the McCullough bill by a far great
er majority than had been anticipated
by its most ardent supporters. The
vote, whereby the senate refuse te
strike out the enacting words, was 31
to 11. The bill passed to third read
ing with notice of certain amendmients
whereby children whose labor may be
necessary for the support of indigeni
families or widows, may be excepted
The main fight, however, has already
been made, and the bill is certain
of passage in slightly modified forni
from that in which it came from the
house. The bill raises the age limit
from 12 to 14 years.
On a yea and nay vote of 53 to 24
the house tabled a motion to direci

Hammond Bill Killed.
The house reversed Its action by re
fusing to give a third reading to the
bill by Mr. Mammond providing foi
a election on the question of issuing
bonds for the improvement of roadi
in Richland county. Again the debate
was filled with "quasl-charges and In
nuendos," all of which were categori
cally denied. Two or three members
arose to points of personal privilege
The house refused passage of the bil
on a yea and nay vote of 65 to 3:
and the "clincher" was put on. The
Hammond bill had been substituted
on second reading for the majority
bill on a year and nay vote of 42 to 41
