A bill has been or will be intro
duced in tho l?gislature, tis we are
in fora.ed, to abolish tho office of
?Master for Laurens County. A
similar bill of a general nature, to
abolish tiiis office in all the Coun
ties was very properly defeated,
but when it comes to this local leg
islation tlie rosull cannot be fore
Tlie opposition to this office arises
irwin two causes. lt ls either
through ignorance of the duties of
tho Master, or from a desire to
throw additional foes and costs in
the bands of tho Sheriff and Attor
neys. Objections from a desire to
benefit the people at large ls im
possible, as we propose to show.
hi the Inst place, not one cent of
the County finnis is paid to the
Master. Then the question of be
ing a burden on the County must
be eliminated. Parties who litigate
cases alone pay thisofficor. Let us
look at the condition of affairs with
out a Muster, ns it was before the
office was created, and ?is it will be
when it is abolished. In equity
cases it frequently requires several
days to examine witnesses, then
the arguments must be benni ami
then a decision roached. Few eases
of importance can be disposed of in
less than live days. 'Ibis work, in
tho absence of n Master, must be
dom; either in open Court, or by a
Special Referee. If by the Special
Referee system, then a lawyer must
be chosen, who Axes Iiis own fee,
ami an examination of the records
in this County will show more fees
of from $50 to $100 than lower,
While in some cases they rcuched
$300. There is no alternative, the
lawyer must be employed tn ! lu

the law siys to the Master, I
must work for $3.00 per day for

tho Master pets a commission of
two per cent, for paying out money.
So he does, but this commission is
pu Ul to the Sheriff In tho absence
of a Master, and what be neill ls

Tho suggestion that wo have a
grand civic and military gathering
at this place in the spring of '88
has mot with general approval by
our citizens. A hurried interview
with leading citizens last week con
vinced us that they will enter into
the measure witli all the enthusi
asm of men who love their County
ami delight to seo lier prosper.
of course, as yet, no definite
plans have boon arranged, but in
asmuch as there will be an encamp
ment of the Third Regiment S. <'.
Militia, it is Hie universal desire of
our people to have the encamp
ment nt Laurens. This is the cen
tral point, easily reached, with am
ple lietel accommodations, and in
every way tho favored spot. Be
sides, Laurens is anxious to show
lo tile world Hie rapid strides she
lias made in Hie past few years,
and for this reason desires tlie en
campment hero. Karly In the
spring our Fair Grounds will In?
put in good condition, and will nf

be regaled in holiday attire to

South Carolina owes a debt to
those of ho citizens wlm i. >1
their lives and their all in lier de

provide for themselves. Mut, while
this is so, it is also true that wc, as
a State, arc not in a position to dis
charge this obligation fully. Any
thing 1 ke a general pension bill
would be ruinous. A' best, to pre
vale a small sum for thc benefit of
really destitute ex-Con federates, is
all that could lie asked at this time.
11 is unreasonable to expect a state,
having only partially recovered
from thc effects of war-a war
which swept away tho property of
its citizens-to go to work and pen
sion two armies.
