_ Got. Evaus* Message.
The Governor has discharged his
constitutional duty in sending a com
munication to the General Assembly
advising that body of tho conditions of
tho Stato. Tho paper is a very long
ono and discusses fully tho matters pro*
per in his opinion for lcgislatlvo ac
tion. Of course it is advisory only but
as the Assembly is ovorwhelmlngly of
the Governors political comploxlon,
outside of tho morlt of his suggestions,
thoy are likely to carry groat weight.
As a rule It suggosts economy In deal
ing with the resources of the State,
except in tho matters of reducing the
volume of offices, salarios, and the In
oreaslng and dangerously lnoroaslng
patronage of the Executive. Sooner
or Later tho Stato will awake to this
view and to tho fact that tho Governor
is a member of too many boards and as
has boon said before and wo repeat
boards are in their essenco "screens."
This Is not moant a s criticism of Gov
ernor Evans, but In refereucc to tho
tendency to Imposo upon tho Govornor
duties ovor which a Governor ought to
exorcise scrutiny, and our remarks ap
ply to any future Govornor. Por In
stance the Govornor ought not to be In
the dispensary business, handling tens
of thousands of tho State's monoy. Ho
should hold tho whip hand and super
vision of these things 'instead of bolng
MAJOR PARS of thom. Tho Govornor
yields the point that It is impossible to
have in tho State an honest return of
personal property for taxation, a point
that ought not to bo yielded and tho
j^eglslaturo should havo boon stoutly
Hrged to stringent laws on this lino.?
Tho temper of tho message is not bad;
there is much to commend, while it
[evidences industry and a study of tho
[economical problems before tho people
of the State. He urges tho members
to get down to thoir work, and make no
' waste of time and the monoy of tho
people. A broad and liberal view of
the eduoational Institutions is takon,
the colleges and common schools, and
thoy aro insisted to bo maintained
economically, but not niggardly. As
the propositions arise for legislation
and discussion wo propose to discuss
thom. Tho work ought to bo done in
thirty days, says tho Governor, but we
tear his hopes will not be realised.?
One new feature for raising revenue in
South Carolina is the matter advlsod
of taxing Incomes over $1000. It Is
doubtful if this measure, which in
volves scrutiny, espionage, and a spe
cies of oaves-dropping into private af
fairs, will suit the genius of our peo
ple. The measure will/be urged, how
ever, and we wait the details of the
scheme, for further comment.
Two More Judges.
That Justice may bo quick and live
ly, it Is proposed'to creato two more cir
cuits and elect two more circuit judges
at $3,000 salaries. This will make two
more solicitors at $1,500 each. It is ar
gued that tho jails will bo promptly de
livered of prisoners and the extra ex
pense would bo thus saved. It may bo
so on paper, but tho point is, how it
a ?v^ll worij out In n/aotlco. By tho same
process of reasoning wo could multi
ply our judges and solicitors until tho
courts would cost us nothing?In fact
bring in a revenue. We aro in for re
tronohment and economy. At this bar
for the last four years at each court
every caeo ready for trial has boon
heard and every calendar finished to
the foot. Tho trouble lies In the fel
low to be hung wanting a continuance,
or the side that has tho short ond of
tho single treo, and so would you.

In his message Gov. Evans applauds
the noble generosity of certain Attor
neys at law who volunteered without
pay to aid the Administration in its
multiplicity of law suits. This is won
derful; you have worked a miracle or
touched closely upon it when you have
soitened the hearts of these gentry.?
Pobably they-are hybernat]ng and

quarters upon the fat fees already paid
them by the State. This merits being
looked into; examine tho appropriation
bills o( the last four years. Governor
Evans recommends that they bo paid,

The marriage of Belmont, a divorced

people can go with confidence when perhaps the lives of loved ones
