iAOLINE TAX BILL
rof des for Tivo Cents a Gallon-1
Cent on Kerosene
. ,GISLATORS WORK HARD
One-Half of Gasoline Levy for Roads
-ther Half For State
Treasury
Columbia, Jan. 17.---The Senate
h'nce committee tonight reported a
1il providing for two cents a gallon
tax on gasoline and one cent a gallon
tax on kerosene. Fifty per cent (f
t,he gasoline tax will be applied to
roads and each county will get its pro
rata share based on it; taxable pr
perty. The remainder goes into the
general treasury.
Senator Christensen. today showed
the temper of the finance conmmit
tee'whenhe asked for a night session
at. vhich to consider the 'inheritance
tax bill. Chairman Hughes, of the
ways and means committee of the
Iouges is adopting the same plan on
the. House side. The idea is to have
- the General Asembly definitely and
explicitly indicate what it wants to
Ilo .vith the 'varioty income bills
and then the two committees and
the members will be better - able
to determine how to handle the ap
propriation bill,
The Seite has given prioritX to
the inheritancd, tax bill and this
will be' followed by a considera
tion of the gasoline tax bill.
Today there was an extended
hearing, bsv the finance committee
on the 'gasoline tax bill and Messrs.
Mobre, Thornhill and Senator Young,
all of Charleston, and Messrs. Alva
Lumbin, Lambert and Keenan, of
Coliombia, were heard on various an
gles of the bill.
As his, been insisted upon time
and time again the real problem
in. connbetitn with the tax situa
tioh belongs to the State. With a
State levy - of t'welve mills many
of the dounties have tax levies of
three and four times that amounts
dfd practically fall of the cities in
the State two and three times as
much and there is where the real
pinching occurs.- It is figured that
if a tax of one' cent a gallon is
imposed for county purposes that it
? would- reduce the 'county levies about
two mills.
The overwhelming importance of
the, tax legislation that is pending
is largely indicated by the small
number of general bills that htre
been so far presented. The temper
seems to be to devotl the most at
tention to the various tax problems.
Of course, there is the usual number
.of local bills which is due to the
" growth of the State and the .rapid
development of the roads, schools and
other improvements by the method of,
bond issues.
To look at the clean-cut and dap
per member from Lee county-, Robt.
M. Cooper, Jr., one would hardly sus
peet his real business. Hoc is a farm
er--a real farmer. First he graduat
ed1 at the. University of South Cato
Slipa and then he wvent to farming. No
one-horse busintess about Robert M.
a Cooper, Jr. lie plants, or has plant
ed .1,850 acres. His. farming :opera
tio'ns are in five counties andl what
uis most important he has the success
and optimism of a young mil who
knows what he is doing. He is pre
sidlent of the S~nte Fair, a member of
the ways andl means committee and
lets none of ,his irons get too hot.
More men of his type are needled'in
the political activities of this or any
other State.'
The General Assembly is proudl
gof its younger members. One of
these aind a stalwart member, who
does things in W. D. Barnett, of Co
lumbia. He I! a mountain boy, rais
ed in the foot-hills of Oconce. After
*ho gfaduatedlfrom Clemson he came
hero to attendl tho-university and pur
sue -the law course. The day- he
(graduated he% had bu't $15 in thg
world, but he had energy; perserver
ance and push. Frank Tompkins em
*-ployedl him at $40 a month but really
gavd him miore. Nowv the firm name
dap Tompkins, Barnett &. Elliott and
Si~4e yo'ujg Oconee boy is' recognized
:, aaleading. member 'of the bar. He
is trustee of Clemson~ Collyge and
is ao~tivo in its affairs. Mr. Baraett's
legislative idea is concentration. Last
year he was a co-author of the State
wide fdnce lawy bill. It. is now a
