It ls evident that tho "Col ll m bin
(.'anal" scheme was, in tho begin?
tiing, a mistake, but since the State
lias embarked In tho enterprise,
and spent $125.000. thc question
arises, Has tho Legisla!ir e acted
wisely In throwing this money
away? This is certainly no limo
to make extravagant appropria
tions, and especially on'cunals, foul
if instead of allowing the Immense
amount of work the State bas done
to bo washed away, tho legislature
has appropriated a few convicts in
continue work until thc ennui could
bc utilized or disposed of in some
way, it would undoubtedly have
Tho professional lobbyist, R. li.
TILLMAN, had his hands full, w hen

committee appointed to overlook
tho Legisla tu rc. Ile gave Up Hie
job as n b:\<I ono and b sahl lo have

tho only friends ho had in thc Leg
islature were tho Inwvors. Mr.
TILLMAN must have been I m peas nd
with thc con viet ?on thal il iw more
cl i fl) cult to lead fanners than li?'
once imagined. Ile erred in think
ing that all fanners who c (otho
Legislature arc "hedi tailed" and
bonce, he failed to lead diem.
Since tho Legislature lias clodded
<o placo a lax of $ 10, on all students
who attend ibo South C'a roi I ns
College, who arc abb- to pay, it b
earnestly Imped timi this will sat
isfy those who have worked s<
hard against free ?ducation
Many of those who have clam
ored against free tuition Pave pro
fessed devotion to ibo College
and if such professions are made
in pood faith, we may ex pud them
