All the newly elected Senator
wer'e swVorn int, stan~dinig in acr
ele in front of tho p)residmng office
and having the oath administerei
h~y Dri. Pope. The oath is th
usual 0one that they will suppor
the Constitution. TIhe~y also hav
to take an nath that the ha
not fought or taken, part in any
duels since the dueling law was
passed in 1882. The Bible was
pas'sed .around by the Sergeant-at
Arms. Some of the honorable
Senators probably knew iio eof
the outside of that. Bible thain.f
the inside. This, however, is be
causethey have not had tino to
read thie Scriptures.
Clerk Pope called the roll ind
the Senators answered. Then
Senator John R. Harrison was
nominated for and unaniiouslV
elected to the position of President
pro tem., to act as presiding ofli
cer in the absence of the Lituten
ant Governor.
President Timmerman annoin
4 ced that the first business would
be the election of a Clerk. There
upon ensued some mild sparring,
a few of the Senators wanting the
election put off until to-day. The
presiding officer ruled that he did
not consider the Senate, organized
for business until a Clerk and
other officers had been elected.
The election for a Clerk was
then gone into. Mesers. Hemp
hill, Sligh and McKeown were
placed in nomination.
McKeown was deserted on the
second ballot. Gen. Homph ill
was declared to have been elected
and stepped forward and took thel
ath of office. Thereupon Dr.
Pope stepped down and out.
For Sergeant-at-Arms the nom
ineos were J. C. Elliott. the pres
ent incumbent, and J. E. Smith
of Newberry. Mr. Elliott was re
elected by a vote of 29 to 7.
For Reading Clerk the itmni
nees wore R. L. (inter of .\ilo 1,
1. H. Stewart and N. Kh. Pr.r'i.
'Those candidatos wero givoi a 1-t
by13 being made torad five inni
each. After this trial the Sont
elected Mr. Stewart to the posit t I
he receiving 28 votes, Gunter .
and Perry 4.
At this point the loud and amy
thing but mellow voice ot Cal
Caughman was heard for t he last
time. He arose and read a roso
lution introduced authorizing the
President'to make the same nuim
ber and character of appoin moii ts
to minor officers as at the last,
session. Then Caughmainm got
down off the stage and inean(ered
into blissful space and away from
the delightful and delicious pw.
cincts of jobdom.
Dr. Timimermian announced the(
following appointnients: .Jour
nal Clerk, Jesse T. (Ganti.; luill
Clerk, E. A. Perry; Doorkeeper,
Thomas Whipple ; Assistant Door
keeper, J. R. Boyles; Gallery
Doorkeeper, Marion Dorne; P'ages,
Edward Daniel and CIaldwehl
Smith ; Postal Clerk, Edward
Jenkins. These officers were sworn
.in and the Senate was considered
fully organized f e'iiness.
A committee 'ointedl to
wait on Governo. ' ad1( tell,
him the Senate was te .- re
coive communications froin him.
This is the way the Senate, was
organized. The way it wans (10ne
mn the House is told elsewhere.
The remaider of the Senate bus
iness was brief but there was a
senatorial turn to it at the last.
The committee which waited on
Governor Tillman toturned and in
formed the Senate that the Gover..
nor would communicate with hue
Senate tt--day.
.The Seuate was ready to ad journ
until to-dlay, bnut Senator Moweg
