Little Work Done by House After
GOOD ROADS CONFERENCES
Suffrage Amendment Gives Promise
of Causing Considerable
Columbia, Jan. 13.-Organization
consumed the hour or more of time of
the House of Representatives today
after it convened in the 1920 annual
session at noon. Little other work i
The members appear to be finding
their bearings and are lining up on
the real legislative fights which will
commence in the next few (lays. The
members are investigating the var
ious improved hignway methods be
ing advanced on all sides, and it seems
certain that some sort of a comprom
ise will be effected so that South Caro
lina will have good roads. Some of the
members who left Columbia last year
as unswcrved opponents of a good
roads system which will cost money,
are back here determined that some
*u't of highway legislation will be en
acu 2d. Already several small confer
ences have been held on the matter.
A number of good ro:.d bills are in
prospect for the llouse and Senate
Sulfragist "Lobby" on Hand.
The suffragist "lobby' showed up in
force today, and already it is gen
eral thing to see some devoted woman
advocate buttonholing the members of
the General Assembly and telling
them of the beneficient governmental
results to be obtained from allowing
the fair sex the ballot. No decided
itiment has shown itself on either
of the question as yet, but there
strong partisans for and against
the Susan 13. Anthony amendment to
the pationjl Constitution, and like
w gro are many who do not know
wI4} a$ to turn. The prevailing
qti by among legislators is:
"Is t age amendment going to
carra'?" i 1 very convenient, some
times, to J te' with the prevailing side.
A resolution was adopted by the
House and concurred in by the Sen
ate asking the Governor to person
ally read his annual message to the
joint assembly at noon tomorrow. Sub
sequently a request was read from
Governor Cooper requesting this iden
James R. Bellamy, a prominent
truck-grower and business man of
Beaufort County took oath today as
representative from his county. Mr.
Bellamy could not re;ort at the last
session of the General Assembly be
cause his large truck-growing inter
ests would have a en jeopardized be
cause of lack of labor and expert
supervision. It was necessary for him
to stay in Beaufort as ne 'se to his
interests or otherwise sutler irrepar
able financial loss.
George W. Seignious, of Charleston
and George W. Failey, ofg Fort Motte
were two new members who were
sworn in today. The former succeeds
Joseph F. Wise, of Charleston. re

the stumps are pulled they are cut

'r. II. McFaddin of Gables is putting
.11, a wire fence around his farm. It
ertainly looks good to see a neoW
vell-built fence around a man's fa61
ind it advertises to all who pass that
.he nmn who lives on that fenced farm
raises crops for his own stock and not
'or everyone else in the neighborhood.
A< fence is also a safeguard against
inimal diseases, for it partially iso
ates and prevents diseased stock
which runs at large from comning in
ontact with his own stock. Do like
1r. McFaddin fence your farm and
<cep your stock at home.

verms which were passing the winter
