COLUMUIA Dee. 9.
The week in the General Assembly
hau been entertaining in tho way of
debate but very little has been accom
plished. The bill for tho repeal of
eharter? of eprporAiions refusing . to
pay their tuxes passed In Its third and
final reading In the Senate but that
was a foregone conclusion. It was
stubbornly fought and an unusual dis
play of indepondonce on tho part of
the Reform element was manifested In
the disc fusion. It went through only
by veto of 1*0 to 14. Wilson of Spartan
burg was in charge of it and he shoved
it through with his usual relentless ve
hemence in dealing with intractable
cor-poratlons. Timmerman and Pinloy
opposed It. Pinloy, by tho way, is the
unknown factor in tho Senate. Some
times ho votes and fights for measures
most repugnant to the Conservative
element and yet while they arc still
gnashing their teeth at him ho often
I conies to thorn with timoly assistance.
The salary reduction bill hangs fire.
Its passage depends entirely upon
whother or not tno Tillinanitcs really
mean to pass it and their intontion is
one of those things like "tho way of
serpent upon a rock- too wonderful to
The bill to put Charleston in the
Hlack district with the unwritten
amendment of sending some citizen
like Stokes to tho national legislature
lias passed its second reading, despite
the frantic efforts of tho one time po
tent and inlluontiul reformer, Cal.
Caughman. Cal's voice is still heard
in the land, sounding, sounding, but
his glory i? of the far-gone departed
variety and ho isn't any more listened
1 to as one of '-'armor Ben's old chains.
I fancy tho. new spick and span dis
pensary law will be passed as Intro
duced without material amendment
though there will bo a vast deal of
wrestling and tussling over some of its
features. It's a tight, severe, stern,
drastic measure and the purpose of its
framei'S evidently is to devise a statute
which must turn a stream of dollars to
the Kefawm bars or else starve the
dry portion of humanity outright. In
brief you "touch not, taste not, handle
not" anything but Dispensary liquor or
else go to jail for thirty days or pay a
fine of a hundred dollars. Constables
may enter any house where they sus
pect liquor to be concealed whether tho
house is a private dwelling or soft
drink emporium. Violators of the act
may be arrested without warrant.
Section tit reo is expected to break
up entirely the practice of importing
liquor Into the State. Tho salary of
tho State dispenser is to bo increased
$1200. The bill is not likely to come
up for debate before next week. What
tho Conservatives, will have to say
about it is a matter of conjecture.
Many people are of the opinion that
a trial of the preposterous measure will
disgust everybody with it and that it
would bo better to let it go through
without an amendment being hinted by
It has been finally determined that
a reading of Brazeale's codification
will not bo necessary but of course it
will not have the force of anew statute.
A session after Christinas to enact it
would have cost #40,000 and it was
thought, hotter to accept it merely as a
digest than to incur such an outlay.
The county government bill will bo
called up to-morrow.
Senator Wilson's bill to compel cor
porations to pay their employes at tho
end of each week, etc, has boon un
favorably reported, but it is not im
probable that the Senator will put in a
lick or two for it on tho lloor. Wilson
Is good at that sort of a thing and as
this hill will strike a popular chord, ho
may succeed in saving it.

their plans had previously been

The letters received by Tun adver

side and published, possibly had some
thing to do with bringing this about.
Anyhow The Advertiser thanks all
on both sides of the question who were
kind enough to reply to their queries.
Representative Smith is strenuously
opposing the new county bill.
Representative Wolf has introduced
a bill organizing a new school district
at Friendship with the usual provisions
for a special tax, etc. He has also
drawn up but not Introduced, a bill
providing a new school district in the
neighborhood of Barksdale. He has
refrained from Introducing this bill
because the people of that sect ion do
not seem to be united on the measure
as to the bounds of the district and etc.,
and letters and petit ions lor and against
it have been received. Until ?these
differences have been adjusted, tho
bill will probably not be introduced.
Another of Dr, Wolf's bills provides
that the two Trial Justices in the city
of Laurens be paid each a salary of $200
per annum, and that the offlco of Con
Btableo bo abolished, the duties of th(
latter office are to bo devolved upon
the Sheriff, who is to bo empowered
to serve Trial Justice's process. A
reason given me for the lalter provis
ion is that the Laurens Trial Justices
sometimes experience trouble in find
ing their Constables when wanted.
The Constables, of course, are obliged
to engage in busines additional to their
Official duties in order to earn a liveli
hood and consequently it Is argued that
they are not always* to be bad at a
moment's notice. The Sheriff or his
deputy though is always convenient.
