the lack of interest shown by
friends and complaining of the
fact that they did not seem to

other was bubbling over with
success. All of their friends
had either giren theni' a sub

What was. the difference?
Both had the same number of
friends and each was as popu

difference-the second had be

pie, Gathered Around the State
The house and senate received a
special message from the governor
about the Fortner bill and- the two
cent passenger rate bill. 'Something
was also said in the message about
the constitutional provision that an
act shall become a law if the governor
does not sign it or return it to the
general assembly without his signa
ture in three days after he receives it.
The message intimated that the legis
lators would have plenty of time to
pass the Fortner bill and the two cent
rate bill while the governor was con
sidering the general appropriation
bill, and that unless the two bills
were acted on the governor might call
a special session of the general as
sembly next spring.
As a matter of fact, the house has
passed both the Fortner bill and the
two cent passenger rate bill.

South Carolina had absolute disregard
for law, and told the senators that re
cently a citizen had said that -he could
committe murder in this state with

unfavorable report. The same fate
occurred to Mr. McMaster's other pub
lic utilities bills.
Preparatory to adjournment sine
die, the house killed all the second
reading house bills on its calendar.
This is usually an Indication that the
session of the general assembly is
near its close.

resolution from the senate urging the
South Carolina delegation in congress
to use its effoits to have government

The senate bill allowing sheriffs to
accept passes on railroads was killed
on third reading by the house after
a lively fight into which the question
of corporation influence on sheriffs
and members of the house was In
jected. The sheriff's pass bill was
Ted by a vote of 45 to 34.
The house killed the Carlisle bill
repealing the state income tax law.
The passage of the Carlisle bill was
urged on the grounds, that the state
tax on incomes was inequitable and
farcically enforced and that the pas
sage of the federal income tax law sub
jected income taxpayers to a double
burden. The bill was killed by a vote
of 52 to 34.
The house killed the Crouch bill re
quiring arch'tects employed by the

cost of buildings they designed.

third reading by unanimous consent
in the house.

from locking the doors of coaches
pAssed and was sent to the house.
The house vital statistics measure
was allowed to go to a third reading.
This places the senate and house bills
in position for passage.
The senate adopted the Kirk pon
current resolution 'in - regard -t, nam
ing the forts at Panama.
When the Rihland delegation bill
-o amend the comnqlssion government
act, so 4s to allow a councilma nto
run for mayor without first resigning
as councilman, was called, Senator
McLaurin moved to table it. Senator
Weston asked that it be passed over.
Debate on the 2-cent rate bill was
continued throughout the greater part
of the session in the senate, and that
body adjourned by a vote of 20 to 14
just before midnight with the meas
ure still to be disposed of. A motion
made to indefinitely postpone the bill
was lost by a vote of 24 to 13. The
committee amendments were tabled
by a vote of- 20 to 17.
When Senator Earle called for the
regular order and the- 2-cent rate bill
came up, Senator Clifton,, who had
the floor from the morning session,
asked the indulgence of Senator-Earle
for 10 minutes, saying that he was
ilndisposed. Senat'or Clifton said that
he would speak within 10 minutes or
yield the floor and make no further
In a few minutes Senator Clifton
yielded the floor, saying that. he could
not speak because of Indisposition.
Senator Crouch moved to indefinite
ly postpone the bill. This motion was
lost by a vote of 24 to 13.
Senator Dannis' pending motion. to
strike out the enacting words was
then lost by a very light aye and nay
vote; though It was objected that Sen
ator Dennis had gone home and- had
thereby forfeited his motion.
ISenator Carlisle then moved to
table the railroad committee amend
ments, which .Senator Earle again
contended wo'uld simply re-enact the
existing laws, except that the rail
roads would be permitted to sell in

OF INTEREST TO ALL SOUTH
Increase in Stock.
There has been an increase of very
nearly $10,250,000 in the value of the
live stock in the State el South Caro
lina since 1910 according to a state
ment issued a few days argo by the
department of agriculture as a sup
plement to the annual report of 1914.
The report shows also an increased
of -136,000 head of. live stoc kin the
period indicated. A little over a quar
ter of the $10,250,000 increase is in 4
the value of mules and over $2,000,
000 in the value of horses. These in
creases, of course, are not unusually
significant except that they indicate 4
the. extension of agricultural under- ]
takings and to some extent the great
er utilization of farm machinery.
The really gratifying increase that a
has occurred is in both the number 1
and value of hogs as a result of a
state campaign for "something to eat
at home." There are 115,000 more
hogs in South -Carolina this year than
in 1910 and the value of the hogs
has iucreased over $2,$50,OOQ in the
iame length- of .tine. There has
been only A slight increase in the
number of milch cows, but their value
has increased by nearly $1,100,000. A
very significant Increase Is that in.
the value of all other classes of cat
tle on the farms, other than milch
cows, the value in 1910 being $2,508,
000 and -that in 1910 being $3,144,000,
Marlboro Farmers Talk Staple
Several Interesting and instructive
articles in regard .to the planting of Z
long staple cotton have been ' pub.
lished recently. The question Is of
vital interest to the farmers of Marl
borQ county. As yet it Is impossible
to reach a conclusion as to the weight
of authority and of opinion in favor
of or against long staple. As common
rumor and street talk it can 1be heard
that the shortage in the cotton crop in
this..county for th.e past season was
due to the fact that so many of .th"
farmers planted so mich more long
staple, but when it comes down ti
the actual comparison and st.tement
from accurate figures it i* more than
doubtful if. the shotage can be ac
counted for, in this way, and it would
seem that general crop' conditions and
seasons in this county had more to
do with the shortage htan anything
else. The Indications are that the
crop in this county will be about 12,
000. t9. 13,000 bales short from the
crop, -pf the season before.
