By the killing of the Saluda bill
the senate refused to disrupt the state
highway act and thus begin an under
mnirlng of the highway commission,
according to several senators who
spoke against the measure. The sen
ate was apparently surprised at itself
as the bill drew forth a long debate,
but when the vote was reached the
balloting was overwhelmingly against
the measure. The vote was 24 to 11

after a short debate pro and con the
resolution was killed.
Senator 1-lubbard's joint resolution
to prohibit .the planting of cotton in
South Carolina for one year in order
to eradicate the boll weevil was killed
on a viva voce vote. This resolution
w'vuld not have taken effect until sim
ilar laws had been passed by
Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama and
!North Carolina, but the senate did not
think the- bill to be along the right
lines. Senator Moore moved to strike

The senate likewise struck out the
resolving words of the Elerbe con
current resclution asking the tax com
mission to lower the assessments on

was characterized as "confusing and
solens." Senator McGhee moved to
trike out the resolving words and the
vote was 14 to 8 to kill the resolution.

senate agreed to the amendment.

adopted a resolution at the beginning
of the session giving all the revenue

The bill, which was first introduced
last year with the idea of supplying
teeth to the check law of the state,
provides "that it shall be unlawful

check, dIraft. or order is not paid by

that such maker or drawer did not

such check, draft or order is drawn,

the maker or drawer of such check,

Prospects for an adjournment of
the general assembly within the con

at present with the senate legislative
mill grinding exceedingly slow in com

"more gas is turned on" and the mill
speeded up. One official said that

ably a little far-fetched.

of the chairman of the state highway
