but that he was ready with his talent,

The proposal to appint a committee
of five to investigate the feasibility of
establishing a brick plant on the state
farms and operating it with convict la
bor met with favor in the house. The
resolution to this effect by Mr. Lee of
Spartanburg was sent to the senate by
a large vote.
With the intention of protecting mort
gagors from unscrupulous mortgagees,
the house passed to third reading a bill
I providing the manner in which mort
gages for personal property shall be
executed. The opinion seemed to be
widely current in the house that mort
gagees of personal property had fre
quently imposed upon mortgagers, es
pecially when the latter were illiterate.
I The bill passed was a substitute bill by
the judiciary committee for the bill in
troduced by Mr. Wallace. The bill fol
Section 1. That all mortgages of per,
sonal property made by any persor
shall be executed in the presence of twc
disinterested persons and who are not
related to the mortgagee either by ties
of blood or marriage and who are not in
the employ of the mortgagee; said per.
sons shall hear the mortgage, which
shall be executed in duplicate, read and
explained to the mortgagor, after which
said persons shall subscribe their names
to said mortgage as attesting witnesses.
All mortgages of personal property not
executed in accordance with the provis
ions of this act shall be null and void:
1'ovided, That this act shall apply only
h mortgages of $50 or less.

Mr. Toole of Aiken declared
that the title should be changed

its principal effect.
Mr. Berry of Orangeburg said

Mr. Searson of Barnwell said
