Pursuant to law, tho General Assem
t)ly ol' .South Carolina mot in Colum
bia on Tuesday tho 24th tilt. Tho
Senate was called to order hy Lienloil
ailt-C over nor Sheppard ami tho House
by Speaker Simons. .
'The annual message of thc Governor
was received, read, and referred to
appropriate commit tees.
Owing lo thc intervening, of Thanks
giving Day lhere were, last week, bul
four working days for thc ('emeral As
sembly. These were well spent III tho
introduction or consideration of vari
ous measures of public importance.
A brief statement of these will provo
of general interest.
Thc House passed to its third read
ing (introduced at thc last session, by
Mr. Ib ice, of I'airfield) the joint reso
lution proposing an amendment to the
Constitution, touching thc distribution
of tho two-mill school-tax. After
some, debate thc joint resolution was
ordered to bc engrossed for a third
reading in about thc following shape:
"SUCTION Tho boards ol', county
commissioners of thc several counties
shall levy an annual (ax of not less
than 2 mills on tho dollar, ?fcc, for tho
Support 6f tho public Schools in their
respectivo counties, winch tax, &c.,
shall bc held in (lie county treasuries ot'
thc respective counties and paid out
exclusively for thc support of (he pub
lic .schools as provided by law. There
shall bc assessed on all taxable polls
in tho Stale (ho annual (ax of one dol
lar Ol) each poll, &c, for educational
purposes. Tho school tax shall bc
distributed among tho several town
ships Of tho counties, and in counties
where there aro no townships among
tho tax districts, in proportion lo die
amount of (axes paid by said (own
ships or tax districts."
In tho Senate, tho House bill to pro
vide stenographers for thc fifth and
sixth circuits caused sonic debate.
Various minor amendments were
adopted. Senator Black tried to have
tho section referring th tho sixth cir
. nit stricken out, ami was seconded by
Senator Clyburn. Thc agricultura
Senators generally supported thc mo
tion, hut it was defeated by a vote of
lt! to 14, and thc bill was passed.
There will bo another fight oil tho
third reading.
A message was raccived from Hie
Governor announcing his veto of thc
bill passed last session ltto make
School District No. 1, Sumter county,
a sep?ralo and distinct school district,
and to require tho school tax and bimi
collected and received in tho same to
bo applied exclusively to school pur
poses in said dist riet." Thc applica
tion oldie lund expressed in tho title,
tho Governor says, is in conflict with
Article X, Section ?, of the Constitu
tion, as amended, which declares that
"the school (ax shall bo distributed
among tho several school districts of
Hie counties in proportion to tlie rc?
spectivo number of pupils attending
tho public schools."
Among tho new measures introduc
ed aro the following:
By Senator Stn y tho, to amend thc
lawas to thc sale of real estate adjudged
to be sold.
By Senator Woodward, relating to
tho time ol' holding Circuit Courts in
(ho sixth circuit.
By Senator Bobo, to provide ices for
certain officers in casos of forcible entry
and detainer ; to amend Section 1,743,
Chapter io, of thc. General Statutes,
relating to tlOOIlSOS.
By Senator Maxwell, joint resolution
to amend Hie Constitution respecting
thc number of comity commissioners.
(Reducing Hie number to ono, mid
making bim a salaried and bonded ofli
ccr. )
The Scnato bas considered a good
portion of the very voluminous bili for
thc revision and improvement of tho
laws for thc assessment and collection
of taxes.
Among the now bills introduced in
Hie House arc:
A bill to amend Section 481 of thc
General Statutes in roforonco to Hie
salary ol Lieutenant Governor? [This
bill abolishes the salary attached to
the ofllce and allows thc Lieutenant
Governor $10 per diem and mileage
during tho session ol tho General As
sembly. I
Bill to amend tho law in relation to
Uio examinination of teachers. [This
bill was so loaded down with nmend
mcnis that it is somewhat difficult to
folio.v (beni. Ils object, however, it
may be stated, is to givo to graduates
of any chartered college or university
in tho Stato permission to rccclvo a
teacher's ccriiflcato irom cither tho
Stato or county board of examiners
without undergoing an examination,
provided, howovcr, ho or sho has a
good moral character.J
Mr. Hcmphill introduced a bill to
abolish tho office of supervisor of reg
istration, impose tho duties of said
office upon thc auditors of tho sovoral
counties and to provide for their com-,
pcnsalion. Mr. Hcmphill says that
tho pay of tho supervisors is altogether
out of proportion to tho services which
they arc called upon to perform ; that
tho work of preparing thc registration
lists was heavy in tho boginning, but
that it is now Very light and not moro
than thc auditors can attend to for
slight additional compensation.
Mr. lt. D. Lee, of Sumter, gavo
muire of a hill to unable thc Governor
to provide for I ho cnnmornt.lon of the
inhabitants of tho Stato; $20,000 is the
amount appropriated for tho work in
thc bill which, howovcr, Ins not yet
been introduced. Mr. Leo has also
given notice of o bill to chango (ho
limits of the 7th Congressional dis
trict. This he proposes, to do by trans
ferring Boaufort from tho 7th to tho 2d
district, a chango whio Mr. Lee thinks
will give tho Democrats of tho Black
district a fighting chance to be repre
sented in Congress.
Tho bill to provout thc exportation
and trapping and notting of partridges
was killed in tho Hotiso by a vote of
43 to 41, .
Mr. Henry B. Richardson, the new
ly elected member from Clarondon
county, was presold In tho I louse on
Wednesday aud muddled. Ho made
hi? maiden speech later In iLo day
when he introduced resolutions of
respect to thc memory of Mr. Arthur
Harvin. his deceased "predecessor, and
supported thom with a few well choson
mid feeling remarks.
Tho anti-Prohibitionists scored a
victory in thc indefinite postponement
of tho bill from tho last session "to
prohibit (lie salo of spirituous and malt
liquors within thc county of Collcton."
There was no discussion on thc sub
ject. "A 1 > i 11 to regulate thc granting
ol' liquor licenses within incorporated
cities and towns" was passed ovor
without action, ns was also a bill to
prohibit tho salo of liquor in thc town
Of Jonesville, Union county. There
arc several other prohibition bills on
Ibo Calendar and scvcrnl additional
bills bearing upon thc subject ure
looked for during thc session.
NOTES OK TUB SESSION.
Concerning the proposed census, it
is naturally inquired how it will ailed
representation from thc several conn
lies. Taking thc United States census
of 1880 as tho basis of the new appor
tionment, it was found that changes
would occur in eleven counties. Thc
counties which would gain Representa
tives would bc Beaufort, Kdgcficld,
Greenville, Laurens, Marlboro, Spar
enburg and Sumter, who would gain
one Representative each. Charleston
and Berkeley combined, which now
have seventeen delegates, would lose
four, and Aiken, Hampton and Rich
land one each. Under this schedule
it is estimated that Charleston would
have seven and Berkeley six Represen
tatives, but this estimate would per
haps bc increased by a new census in
Charleston, where it is said that thc
population now numbers over 00,000.
In this connection Captain Dennis, of
berkeley, was asked how about bis bill
to transfer thc sea islands from Berke
ley to Charleston. To tins bc replied
that thc bill had been passed ovor at
thc suggestion of Col. Simonton with
a view of having a conference of thc
two delegations. Thc Berkeley dele
gation favor the transfer (willi one ex
ception) and tho Charleston delegation
at present oppose it.
Tlie arc on thc House Calendar a
number of what arc known ns "Liquor
bills." Ono of them, a bill to prohibit
tho sale of liquors in Collcton count y,
was indefinitely postponed without
discussion or division. Mr. Petti
grew'.; bi" lo reg?lale thc granting of
licenses in incorporated towns and
cities was passed over temporarily.
This hill takes away the power of the
granting of licenses from thc munici
pal authorities and vests it in thc conn
ty commissioners, the license fcc-not
less dian $200-to be paid to thc usc
of the county. Thc bill to prohibit thc
salo of liquors in the town of Jones
ville, Union county, was passed over.
Thc bill (Senator Biemann's) to repeal
thc Act to prohibit thc sale, of spiritu
ous liquors in Oconoe county, has not
yet been roached. It passed the Sen
ate last session and failed by two votes
in the House on a motion made on thc
la.-d night of thc session to take it up
out ol'ifs order. A bill will bc intro
duced to repeal thc Prohibition law in
barnwell county. An attempt will
also bc made to pass bills allowing thc
granting of licenses in Berkeley and
Charleston counties.
The Senate bas decided to postpone
the judicial elections for tho present.
There is no opposition to any ol thc
present Judges save in two cases. The
friends ol Gen. Moore have determined
to bring his name out for thc position
of .helge of the Second circuit against
Judgo Aldrich. Tho friends of Judge
Maher, who is a probable candidate,
had determined not to bring him out
against Judge Aldrich, but tho action
of tho supporters of Gen. Moore may
determine them to a dinierest course.
It is mentioned in thc lobbies that Cel.
John P. Kicken may bo brought ont as
a candidate for thc Bench in tho First
circuit in opposition to Judgo Prcsslcy,
but no authoritive announcement so
that offeot lias as yet been made.
Thc indefinite postponement of thc
divorce bill is informally discussed.
Some signillcancc was attached to
this for thc reason that thc ant hm of
tho hill, a young member from Fair
field, mado tho motion for postpone
ment. This was explained by thc fact
that lie has been married since the last
session.
Tlioma? A. Hendrix.
Thomas A. Hendricks, Vice-presi
dent of thc United States died at his
residence in Indianapolis, Ind., on thc
.Mth inst. Tho announcement of tho
sudden death of this statesman was a
shook to thc wholo nation. Mr.
Hendricks has occupied a prom
inent placo before tho public for
many years, and throughout his long
public career he was noted for lils
strict adherence to Democratic princi
ples as laid down by the Father of
Democracy, Thomas Jefferson.
Mr. Hendricks was born in Ohio,
but when lie was yet a child his fattier
moved to Indiana with which State thc
subject of this sketch was always
identified. Hs was at tho ago of
twenty-six first called into public, ser
vice as a member of tho Legislature,
mid hinco which timo lio has occupied
various prominent positions. As
commissioner of Lands ho won tho
ominomiation of all. As a Congress
man and Senator whilo faithful to his
State's interest ho was always prompt
to give Ids host efforts to tho promotion
of thc nation's welfare. Ho was nom
inated for tho Vice-Presidency in 1876
with Samuel J. Tilden, but by the
most gigantic fraud over perpetrated
on a nation he wat* deprived of his
office. In 1884, as tho ropresonative
of the old ticket, he was the nomi ncc
for vice-President with Grovor Clovo
laud as President. They wei o elected,
and since tho election vice-President
Hendricks has discharged the duties of
this office with tho samo integrity
which has characterized his wholo life.
Hy the death cf Mr. Hendricks tho
nation loses a faithful servant and the
South a warm, friend.
