MANY ELECTIONS TO it.E MADE
BY NEXT GE~NERlA ASSEMBLIY
Columbia, S. C.,-T"here' will be~
numerous elections in the general
usemnbly which convenes on Januaryv

ing to their "constituents," the memu.
bets of the' two branches..
The chief race will be that for the
asociate, ,iusticeship, left vacant b~y
the last legislature, after many futile
en'orts to break a deadioch. All four
of the candidates who were in the
race last winter will be voted on a
gain, M. L. Bonhami, of Anderson;r
Jessie I. Carter, of Bamibe'g; Senator '
J. H. Marion, of Che.1ter, arnd Judge
S. W. G. Shipp, of lFlarenlce. It is,
expected that a "dark horse" will be.
likely entered when the voting is r~e
newved In January. Governor Cooper
is bedng mentioned ini this connection.
-There will also be elections of seven
circuit judges. The judges whose
~: terms expire in 1922 are I. W. Bow

South Carolinians as well as every

4lucing or niot, as .the new internal
venue act passed by congress will
afford "relief" in a number of in
For eixample, beg~innine: January 1
the eight perk cent war tax on all
rail road tickets will be abolished.
Another "relief" will be the abandon:
ment otf the tax on soft drinks sold
over the counter at soda fountains.
Probably the biggest factor inth
new law will be the abandonment of
the excess profits tax. This tax
brought in nearly $20,000,000 alone in
South Carolina for the past fiscal
year. The tax is still in effect and
will not be abolished until January
I. With this tax abolished the col

Instead of the tax on soft dintks

The 3 per cent tax on all freight

repjealedI as of January 1 and this

Do you know that the stock of
cotton at New Orleans has decreased
it) the last three weeks, when it
should have increased?
Do you know that there is only
about 100,000 bales of cotton in New
York that can be delivered on con
tracts if called for.
Suppose John Smith, Sam Jones
and McGink has bought this cotton,
and sold it to the, mills, what will
happen to Deciember and January
Do you know that there is always
from two to thre.: million bales of
cotton in farmers and merchants
hands? I am not bullish on the mar
ket, but just think what might hap
pen if this cotton is called.
Will say if there is 8.,340,000 bales
this years crop, this is not bearish.
