During the past week tie Legisla

considerably cleared the calendar,
despite the daily Increase of a dozen or
=i'e bills a day reported by thediffer

have been ratfided already, but they
are not of general interest, or else
have iot beeii suilolently reported to

conviction of the offense of dueling as
a pre-requisite of disfranchisement,
but the proposed law compiels every
officer elected or appointed in the

The heaviest fight of the session has
been in the House over the passage of
the liquor license law. The bill al
ready mentioned in those columns
providing for a State license of a hun
dred dollars was postponed till next
session by a vote of fifty-seven to fifty
five. The Charleston delegation op
posed it alaost solidly, and Mr.
Seegere, of Richland, said its passage
would destroy the Democratic party.
Other members opposed the bill on the
- ground that liquor eelling li-a nuisance
and crime that should not be sanction
ed in any way. They favored total
prohibition or nothing at all. Others
opposed the bill because it gave the
proceeds of the license to the State in
stead of the couties. The following
day Dr. Gary, of Abbeville, moved to
reconsider the -vote killing the bill,
and his resolution was adopted. A
nrotion by Colonel Simonton to post
pone the bill to the next session was
lost, amid sone excitement, by a vote
of 31 to 67. Mr. Murray then intro
duced a substitute, framed to meet
objections, and it passed a. second
reading by a vote of 74 to 34. The
motion to reconsider was tabled and
the bill practically becomes a law.
*The full text is kiven elsewhere. The
feature 18 that it pernits tihe free sale
of wine, eider and beer, and double
taxes whiskey and other distilled
liquors. Colonel Simnonton said hie
was wilt ops foiioYlw
. TItaf oaf is better' than no bread, and
that by encouraging tihe substitution
* of light beverages for whiskey many
of the evils of drinking will be avoid
ed. It is said that this bill will meet
with little or no opposition in the
Senate. During the dehates in the
House a pietition of eight thousand
ladies of Charleston, covering thirty
yards of signatures, askinig for prlo
Iuibitory legislation, was unrolled, as
n'lso a petition ten feet long from ladies
A fight, very amusing to outsiders
siad very desperate between the par
ties directly interested, has been wag
ing ever sinco the beginning of the
sessionl, over a bill to incorporate the
Municipal Water Gas Company of
Chiarleston. Th le Charleston Gas Comi
pany now holds a monopoly, and Is
fighting desperately to defeat the bill.
Water gas Is made, we believe, by ex
ti-acting the hydrogen gas of the water
fromi superheated steam and thon comn
bining It with illuminating substances
such as llaphtha and gasoline. This is
a very cheap process, but in its manu
facture a large proportionl of carbonic
oxide gas is generated. This gas is
more p)oisonous even thah carbonic
acid gas, It Is claimed, and on ihis the
Charleston Gas Company makes the
fight. Statistics of tihe number of peo
plc suffocated by not turning off their
gas have been presented to thme Legis
lature, showing that In almost every
case water gas was used. Opinions
of experts and municipal ordinances
of other cities forbidding the introduc
tioni of water 'gas, are also poured Into
the ears -of the count ry members. On
thec other hand, the Water Gas Comn
pan~ly produces counter statistics and
counter arguments, also from good
authority, wvhich go to showv that wvateri
gas is as harmless asMary'alittle lamb,
anid It also rings all the changes on the
cry of anti-monopoly. The Senate
, committee reported unfavorably and
the Hlouse commnitte favorably on the
charter of incorporation. In nmeither
house a decisive vote been taken, and
ci renlars, pamphlets and lobbylsts
meet the legislator at every step.
What our law-givers don'tknow about
water gas now is not worth knowing.
Senator McCall, of Marlboro, intro
duced a bill on Wednesday to exempt
boufide lnmigrants.f'om all taxes
except for school purposes for five
years. after their removal into the
State. This provoked lively dliscus
sion, some urging that this is a died
crimnination, agaiust citizens, to which
it was replied that every immigrant
aidds to the value of property. The
bill passedl a second reading after re

Messrs. Lamar, Rankin & Lamar, Dear Sirs
I had frequent hemorrhago before using your
Consumptive Cure, and had been treated by
Dr. Crowell Johnson and other skilled physi.
clans without being relieved, and after using
three bott les of your Brewer's Lung Restorer,
the hemorrhage was stopped, and I hive never
had one since. I am now in better health than
before, and feel it my duty to state to the pub
lio the effects of your wonderful Consumptive
cure on me. tours truly,
Mrs. E- G. AVANT.
This is to certify that I have hd Asthma
for thirty-five years and used a great many
dillerent kinds of medicines. Was treated by
Dr. Holton five years without finding relief. I
then used your Brewer's Lung Restorer und
found in it a permanent cure.
Very truly yours Z. J. PARKS.
