Columbia. March O.-Following IIe
e session inl which phvsical elduranice
g Was the mini requisite, the General
Assembly of South Carolila, att('r ex
c eediig tle statutory limit of forty
- days by fifteen days, adjounIed sine
n die this iiorning at 8:30 o'clock.
A mass of acts of pIrely local iap
- plicationi were approved, but few laws
>f of State-wide iiportaice were en
acted. This Legislature has ben UInc
of controversy, with smal accom pislish
ments of a real constructive nature,
but, accofling to the consensus of
opinion ,the rejection of legislation of
ordinary character is of more salutary
benefit to the State than the enact
iment of the various proposed laws.
Before the sun rose this morning
the conferees on the general appro
priation bill had agreed anid it Was
reported to both houses. They adolpt
ed the report and sent it to the Gov
I ernor, wearied fromn his long wait,
but he approved it. The General As
semlibly then ceased its business.
11 The bill as adopted carries a Ilvy
I- of not exceeding II mills and has a
total of appropriations of $6,534,92.
87, hastily tabulated. This is a reduC
tion over the lilouse hill and that of
the Senate. The Hlouse bill carried a
- total of $6,5641,361.71. Last year the
fina nce liill carried aplwopriat ions aV
gregating $416,11,1 !, a decrease of ap
- proximately $500,000 under those of'
e this year. The total requests, accord
is ing to the budget report for this yeart',
I -of all 'depart miients and activitie's of
the State government, was $9,801,
