Asylum Repairs to Be Made.
The supreme court issued a writ of
mandamus requiring the comptroller
general to issue warrants on the fund
of $100,000 appropriated by the last
.general assembly for repair work at
the State Hospital for the insane. The
opinion In the case was written by
Chief Justice Gary and concurred iA
by all of the associate justices.
The actio'n to secure the appropria
tion wvas brought by the board of re
gents. The attorney. general held
that the money could not be paid out
by the comptroller general because
the itemi of $100,000 was niot contain
ed in the general appropriation bill
and it was suggested that the matter
be carried to the court for a decision.
"The recaptiuletion of the various
items ini the act, which provides for
an approp~riationt of $418,000 to the
hospital," says the decision, "also
tends to show that it was the inter
tion of the legislature to appropriate
$318,000 for' maitenance and salaries
and $100,000 for rebuilding, otherwise
the item in the recap~itulation would
have een only $318,000."
Work on the proposed improve
ments outlined by the board of re
gents will be resunmed immnediately.
C. Fred Williams, M. D., superinten

completion of all male war'ds, the
erection of a dining room for male pa

State warehouse conmissioner Johr
L. McLaurin -has given out a state

ting companies to withdraw from
South Carolina, and especially the
threats as to insuratice upon property
upon which loans are* outstanding in
,the attempt to force- the calling of the
loans," he went to New York and had
made arrangements there which weie
ample to take care of all such insur
ance. He stated that he believes
the number of the withdrawals by
companies from this state has been
exaggerated and that after this ex.
citement is over it will be found that
there are plenty of companies in
South Carolina to do the busine;s.
"But if any one desires to place in
surance, which It necessary on ac
count of the present situation as the
result of cancellations or refusals to
renew; if they will write to me I will
place the insurance in New York

to reiterate emphatically that if any
one is threatened with the calling of
loans or in any other manner to the
detriment of the business interests of
South Carolina by the cancellation or
failure to renew fire insurance poli
cies, I can place this insurance in
some of the best companies in the
United States, and this talk about
calling loans is mere moonshine.
"I have been flooded with letters
