Official to Be Appointed-?Salary
Paid'Eoch and Length of
Many local appointments arc to be
made dur.or tho coming session of
tho legislature, and members of the
Anderson County delegation say that
tho number of men applying for tho
various Joba is large enough to turn
tho tide of battle In the European
\ war if all the applicants could be
mustered Into service and would dis
play the same aggressiveness they
are showing in charging the pie
counter. Hard times and a change
of administration may have somothing
to do with the unusual number of ap
plicants, but, -.whatever tho cause,
there has been no backwardness In
approaching the delegation.
How Appointment Are Made.
The Anderson County dolegatiqn
will follow the custom that has al
ways prevailed throughout the State
in recommending appointments.. A
meeting will be held in Columbia,
probably between the convening of
the general assembly and the first of
February, when all applications, will
be taken up and put to a vote of the
members. In tho case of certain ap
pointments, such as magistrates, the
appointees will have to be confirmed
by the State senato, and the senator
will thuH have a llttlo more power
than a member of the lower house in
the. event ho decides to exercise it.
It is understood that Senator Sherard
will follow the custom that haa al
p ways prevailed in the county -and
over the State of permitting the mem
bora of. the house to share equally
with him in passing upon, recom
As the appoint monta , to he made

law. This list may bo accepted as
accurate, as it has been compiled
from tho recordB.
