THE SOLONS ARE AT WORK
Lots of Bills Have Been Offered, But Few
Have Gone Through.
Columbia, Jan., 29, 1906.
The Solons have been very busy
since my last letter. Lots of bills
havo come up, been cussed and di.
cussed, abused and killed. while a
goo.d many have run the gauntlet
and will become laws as soon as

There has bean but one topic of
conversation in the lobbies here
lately and that is the dispensary.
The institutioa is doomed but
the fight will be close and desper
ate. Local option is ahead but
thbre are too phases of local op,
tion. Some want to hold new
elections in the 16 counties that
voted out the dispensary. Others
do not. There hinges the fight at
present. The House last week
cleared the colendar of a good ma,
ny bills. One of ,abs which re
ceived a favorable action and was
sent to the senate was Mr. Laney's
to require Christmas holidays at
Winthrop. It is understood that
Senator Tillman who is a trustee
has come into tbis fight, and has
written personal letters to mem
bers of the senate, begging them
to kill the bill. The letters state
that the parents were represented
in the action of the board in deny.
ing the girls their holiday.
Another educational matter of
great interest is the bill to provide
for a model school at Winthrop.
This bill has received a favorable
report from the ways and means
comm ittee and will probably pass
without serious opposition. It
provides for an appropriation of
$25,000 which will be supplement.

would give the pensioners $244,- 4~

getting but $200,000. It would ti
also reduce the amount paid class b
