Tho flint week of the session of the
Genoral Assembly is over end tho re

genuine Reformers (fall it Refawmers
if you liko it better that way) will grace
tho beneh horeaftcr in addition to
Judgo Gary who was the output of tho

Yes, tho weok has been devoted to

vacant judgcshlps made up one of the

At tho opening of tho week It looked
as if Col. Watts must succeed Judgo
Hudson; there has never been any
doubt of that: but thoro appeared a
living chanco for Wallace and I/Jar as
woll as Witherspoon. It was supposed
until shortly before tho election that
tho Gary-Evans people wore friendly to
both tho last named but it is said that
they wore frightened into abandoning
them by a threat mado by tho Honet
and Jordan backers to knifo Eugene
Gary unless thoy spocilled. So they
The enthusiastic Dr. Samps Pope
insists that Judge Witherspoon could
not by any means havo been olocted
had it not been circulated generally
that ho supported tho Reform county
tickot in York last yoar as weil as Con
gressman Strait. Senator Finloy, of
York, a consistent Roformor, who is an
absolutely freo man by the way and
who nominated Judge Witherspoon
denies this positively. Senator Fin
ley never speaks unless ho knows what
ho is talking about. So it is Judgo W.
C. Bonet in the 1st (Charleston) cir

Richard C. Watts in the fourth instead
of Judge Josh Hudson and Judgo Town

At tho closo of tho last session of tho
Gonoral Assembly "Associate Justice"
Ira B. Jones was a tolerably distinct
figure in tho camera of futuro events
but the vision did not materialize. Tho
impression is that the Reformers
formers regarded Mr. Jones as slightly
too shrewd a lawyer to make a good
judgo as well as that he was an actual
necessity to the financial protection of
certain townships in Lancaster county.
So it is Associate Justice Gary and tho
gillant old chieftain of "McGowan's
rigade" is retired to the lasting but
peculiar glory that pertains to tho po- |
litical methods that "go*' in theso
There was a lively light over tho of

for Charleston which yields stipends to '
tho amount of about 94000 a yoar. J. I
E. Cogswell, a Tillmanite, of course,
but ono not so in an "offensive sense"
was elected over Graham. Langley, i
Motortens, Thorroll and others. The J
Conservatives votod for Motortens but
changed to Cogswell and accomplished
the defeat of Graham and Thorrell,
either of whom would havo been dis
tasteful to Charleston.
What else has the General Assembly
done ? Whut else will it do?
It has made progress in tho direc
tion of salary reduction and the bill
was passed on second reading In tho
House. Last yoar thoro wore numer
ous such bills introduced in tho House
and this one is tho composite one from
them all constructed by the House
Judiciary committee, the product of
incubation, as Dan Sullivan, tho Irish
member from Charleston puts it.
Oife thing to keep In mind the salary
reduction bill has not been passed vet,
and may never become a law. Your
correspondent has heard leading Re
formers predict that it would never
go on tho Statute books.
In accordance with the Governors
recommendation, a new Dispontary
law will be enacted. It will preserve
all tho essential features of the old
scheme and an effort will be made to
render it a more finished and systom
matical measure. Tho Governors sug
gestion for the opening of liconed boor
and wino shops will meet with intense
opposition and it is said that not even
Mr. John Gary Evans will consent to
Senator Stanyarnre Wilson of Spar*
tanburg. has introduced a bill to com
pel certain corporations, railroads tel
egraph and express companies excepted
to pay their employees weekly in cash.
Tho design of the l>ill is to break up
tho system by which manufacturing
companies pay their operatives in
checks, good only at "Company" stores.
The measure stands a fair" chance to
pass. Senator Wilson thinks that tho
factories will strongly oppose it.
Representative Uleaso of Newberry,
has a bill to exempt dwellings on farms
from taxation for a period of iivo years,
and another with like exemptions as to
hogs, shoop, cattle and horses. It is
doubtful if Mr. Hleaso has thoslightost
expectation that they will go through.
The bill for tho repeal of the charter
of corporations refusing to pay thoir
taxes is now pending in the Senate and
only awaits-its third reading to pass.
This is tho most radical measure of tho
session. Under its provision the At
torney General will bo instructed to
commenced suit for tho winding up of
tho business of all rebellious railroad
companios whoso charters are annullod.
Tho Governor recommended tho pas
sago of tho bill and that amounted to its

Tuesday. Senator Evans bill will pos
sibly bo accepted this year although it
will be vigorously fought. It has boon
on tho Refer m program for throe or j

by any means a certainty.
Tho problem of tho session is the
rovlsion of tho laws which has been
completed by Ropresontattvo Hlease,"
who succoedod tho late Judge Maker as
a special commissioner for that pur
pose. If all the laws havo to bo road
it will consume days and weoks and
perhaps a month, necessitating a ses

a rocoss will bo taken for Christmas.

? The Laurens Advertiser re
cently askod, when mentioning some
thing about the "taekey party" that
was given hero, "Where is Hartsville
anyway?" Last week the editor of tho
Choraw Reporter attempted to answer
The Advsrtiser's question, and said
among other things:
'To tho host of my knowledge and
holiof tho town of Hartsville is in the
northeastern part of Darlington county,
near tho Chesterfield lino, and Its near
ness to this county and its "tacky
party" are what havo given it what
prominence it may already have.'
"Tho Reporter man is badly "oil his
base" as to the "prominence" attained
by Hartsville. Wo know tho town is
small, but at tho same time wo know it
is prominent as a cotton market and as
a business place. Leaving off the Che
raw dispensary, there is moro money
spent in Hurtsvillo any day of the week
than there is in tho historic old town
of Choraw. There is also a groat deal
moro cotton sold in Hartsville than
thoro is in Choraw or any other town

There is no single exercise which com

have decided to cut the very life out of
