BEGINS NEW TERM
INAUGURATED AS GOVERNOR -OF
SOUTH CAROLINA FOR SEC
UNDER THE CAPITAL DOME
Interesting Review of the Doings of
the General Assembly Durin.g the
Past Week.-Many important Bills
Are introduced in Both Houses.
Columbia, S. C.-Important and far
reaching governmental reforms were
urged by Richard Irvine Manning in
his second inaugural address to. the
general assembly of South Carolina.
The inaugural was delivered by the
governor in the hall of the house of
representatives before a large and
representative gathering, after he had
for the second time taken the oath of
office as governor of South Carolina.
The message contained about 6,000
words and was read by the governor.
Among the matters discussed were:
education, equal suffrage, finances,
economy, penat and charitable prob
lems, commission on economy and ef
ficiency, the National Guard ail a ni
trate flaxation plant for South Caro
Gov. Manning reviewed in detail the
progressive measures which have been
enacted during his first administra
"If liquor is imported into the
State, it can impose a tax on such Im
portation. This tax would defray the
expense of enforcement of the law,"
said the governor at one point in his
"I trust that the general assembly
will enact such legislation as will
minimize the evils of liquor and make
possible the strict enforcement of the
law," said Gov. Manning.
"Permit me to say that, in viewing
the accomplishments of the past two
years, we should, from experience
gained strengthen certain of these
laws, rather than devote ourselves to
new and radical legislation," said
Gov. Manning after reviewing the pro
gressive measures which were passed
during his first term as governor.
At another point in his address the
governor asked for a law which will
give him the right to suspend a sheriff
for neglect of duty.
Gov. Manning asked the general as
sembly to give careful attention to
the planks in the State and National
Democratic platforms bearing on wo
man's suffrage. He did not make any
specific recommendation as to legis
lation on this point. The State Dem
ocratic party asked that the suffrage
question be submitted to the people
for a vote.
The governor again recommendea
the passage of an inheritance tax law.
"In my judgment the general assem
bly should be invested with the author
ity to provide by law for the assess
ment and taxation of property and
franchise," Bald Gov. Manning.
Gov. Manning urged the legislature
* to keep down expenditures to a mini
mum consistent with efficiency and
The creation of a commission on
economy andl efficiency wvas urged by
* 0Gov. Manning. The object Oi the coin
mission would be to prevent an over
lapp~ing of work by the several state
departments. This commission would
modify the laws governing (lie depart
.ments and clearly define (lie duties of
each. The commission would also ini
vestigate the matter of "establishing a
budget system in our state govern
mont. A report from (lie commission
would be required in 1918.
"I recommend that Section 6 of Arti
cle 11 of (lie constitution be amended
so (hat (lie constitutional three-mill
tax on all of the property of (lie state
shall be changed from a county to a
state tax and paid into the state treas
ury. The proceeds of the state school
tax to be apportioned among (lie coun
ties on a uniform basis, such basis to
be determined by the general assem
bly. This provision would aid the
weak counties, and put forward the
general education work in the state,"
said 0ov. Manning discussing means
for improving the state's educationial
system, Hie said that the mill schools
should be placed on a parity with hlb
other schools i the state.
Got'. Manning made a plea for the
establishment of a nitrate fixation
plant near Columbia.
"In conclusion, I urge upon our pee
pie again to turn their backs on past
dissentrions and bitterness-to be a
forward looking people with their
faces turned resolutely to the future,''
said Gov. Manning in conclusion.
The hail of the house was packed
with a large number of spectators to
hear the inaugural address.
Five trustees for the South Caro
lina medical college were elected from
night nominations. WV. W. Fennell of
Rock Hill, J. M. Davis of Orangeburg,

did not desire re-election. Mr. Sand

of the penitentiary.
Directors of tick erdication and
farm extension work met with the
ways and means committee. Conpre
hensive programs of the, work in pro
gress were made, along with an out
line of plans to be- developed. Farm
extension work and tick eradication
were urged as an economic necessity
in view of the threatened invasion of
the boll weevil. 'Co-operation by the

J. K. Breedin, organizer of the pro

LESSON FOR JANUARY 28
REVERENCE OF JESUS FOR HIS
LISSON TEiXT-John 2:13-22.
GOLDEN TEXT-My house shall be
called a, house'of prayer.-Matt. 21:13.
Skipping the details of genealogy,
birth and boyhood, Jolh plunges into
the work and ininistry of our Lord.
Our previous lessons have taken up
the matter of his eternal Goeihead, the
word made flesh, the witness, of John,
Jesus and John the Baptist, his first
disciples and the wedding at Canaan.
Some of these events have been skipped
Over without much colsiderationl, vet
the teacher should review thema briefly.
The wedding it Caaain probably oc
curred in March, A. D. 27, and the
events of this lesson in April of the
Passover week of that year, both
events occurring early In the first year
of the ministry of our Lord. Jesus
went to the w(edding for lie had many
things to teach by means of it. Tho
story is fanillar, and yet God is per
forming the siite miracle every year
except by somewhat- slower process.
John lays strong emphasis upon the
"sigils" which Jesus performed as evi
dence of his oillee. This miracle is anlt
allegory. It also throws light i1pon
Jesus' reitlotin to the home.
1. Jesus Applies the Word of God
(vv. 12-17). As the "Son of the Law"
Jesus observed all of its reqluirements
and therefore went to the Passover
(Deut. 10:10; Luke 2:41). We would
suggest the reading of Edershein's
"Life of Christ" at this polit, especial
ly his description of the feast. Jesus
found much of interest, and also saw
that \hich filled his spirit with indig
nation as hie entured the temple (v.
14). Great numbors of oxon and sheep
and doves were required for the sacri
flees. Every family must bring for
sacrifice a lamb, the sacrifices being
lain in the inner court near the great
altar. Those living nearer the city
could bring their owmi sacrifices, but
those who calIme from far distanit points
found it more convenient to purchase
their sacrifices nearer the temple. Thus
a business had grown up within the
courts, which gave rise to all immilense
aiount of covetouslness and sellish
nless. The yearly tax due from every
Jew could not be received except in
the native coin ; hence the money
changers withill tile courts. The re
sult was thilat tile temple had become a
"(len of thieves" (Mark 11:17). This
ihad undermined the power of religion,
and turned mn away from tile truth.
This place, mnade to be a house of
prayer (Jer. 7:11; Isa. 50:7) had be
come a vanity fair; a s1ow, and tile
very object of the tomple was sieri
ficed to the greed of gain. The (he
fense often maie in our day, of buy
in~g and selling in tile house of God
that it has to do with tile cautse of
worship) will not bear- scrutiny in tile

II. Jesus Fulfills the Word of God
(vv. 18-22). Jesus spalke as 011e hav'

knew thley were in tile wrong. He emI
bodied ini imself, as prophiet, the
mloral setimient of' thle lnatloll, andI( e'x

Jesus gave a signl, a sign whlich thley
did( not undl~erstand11( at the timie (v. 19;
MaiL . 12:38-40 ; 16:1-4). The resur
