The Editor of tit is paper has watched
the proceedings of the Legislature now
In BeSilon with more tbatt ordinary at
tention, lie has come to tho conclu
sion that it is more than an ordin
arily able body. Senate and H0U80.
There are manifestations of a broad
gauge tendency. The Senate can
boast an unusual array of real clover
men. Bhepperd. one of the best bal
anced and all round men the State
ever had, Is particularly :i Statesman.
Then there is Henderson, Mayfiold,
Barnwoll, Archer, Mower, Dean, Wal
ler, Manning. Gruydon, Livingston
and others, all strong men of mark
that make the body peculiarly able
compared to slmlliar parliamentary
bodies. The House consists of one
hundred and twenty-four members,
more than three times the Senate nu
ihorlcally, mtioh younger men, but as
yet there has not been palpable mani
festions of fitness for leadership in the
aggregation Stevenson, of Chester
field, is easily as yet tho ready and
able leader. George Prince, of Ander
son, Is a good .-eeoml, and sve 110*0 with
pleasure that ex-Lieutenant Governor
Mauldin Is fully abreast of the de
niands of the times, and has lost not a
whit of the energy, carefulnoes and
well poised common sense that has
always distinguished him, Among the
bright young nvil of the House must
bo named Patton, of Uiohland, Mc
Gollough, of Greenville, Henderson, of
Greenwood, William-, of Lancastor,
Marlon, ?4 Chester, McDow, of York,
Hydrictc, ol Spartanburg, and from
Charleston: Bacot, MltJltel , Sinkler
and Gad.-den, and from this muster of
fine young gentlemen the State must
look for some of the leaders in tin
near future who are to take care of
her political fortunes. Of course, mod
esty forbids our putting the bright
array representing 1.aureus in the
.category. And of course there are
Wednesday at 12 111. both bodies met
In joint assembly antl held memorial
services in honor of Gov. Ellorbo.?
President Pro Tent. Shepperd pre
sided. Rev. W. K. Richardson, a dis
tinguished Methodist divine delivered
an eloquent prayer. Appropriate re
solutions were moved by Senator
Brown and eloquent addresses spoken
by the mover. Senators: Livingston,
Henderson, Aldrich and Appell and
Representatives M ntgomery.Mo$8,Hy
drick, Bacot and McGullough.
A broad tire bill lias passed the Sen
ate antl will likely pass the other hotly.
It docs not affect light vehicles, but
after 100-1 heavy vehicles must have
broad tires. I We haven't space for the
Bill anil until it passes the particulars
are useless.) A Bill has passed the
House which gives a pr< ferenco to
counties over private parties to hire
convicts to work up ill public works, us
highways, fixing the annual price at
about $50.00. (On the right track.)
Both Houses, (the 10th being Gen.
Lee's birthday, took a recess until
Monday at noon. The Dispensary has
not been seriously tackled as yet and
all parties walking around it and
shinnying On either side as though it
were loaded, and it is.

What Hie Census Will Show.
Among ot her things the census will
show as to this town that its popula
tion has about trebled In the last de
That a cotton oil mill with a plant,
lncluiling an ice factory and cold stor
age plant, worth sixty thousand dol
lars has been established antl is paying
ten and liftoen per cent.
That a steam laundry has been es
tablished, that two bonded ware
houses have been established, that a
new union passenger depot has been
built, that a lino system of graded
schools has been established and a
splendid school building and lot pur
chased, that the main street of the
town for two miles lias been macada
mized, that ccno-nt pavements have
beon laid in the business portion of the
town, that a BUCCe88ful bank has been
established, perhaps two, two having
been established previously.
That a cotton mill with a plant
worth seven hundred anil llfty thou
sand dollars has been established and
Is paying handsome dividends, that
threo of the handsomest and most
costly churches in tho state have been
built, that the Columbia, Xewherry
and Laurens raihoad has been ex
tended to this city, that a system of
water works has been Installed, that a
system of electric ligh's has been In
Besides these achievements of a
more or less public character, scores
of nourishing stores and private enter
prises havo been milled and arc now
Ero8pering. Houses by the hundreds
ave been erected, including a par
ticularly handsome hotel anil many
beautiful and costly private resi
dences. Nevertheless, during this de
cado Laurens suffered a series id'
calamitous fires and went through a
stage of extreme business depression.
For the last (Wo or six years there ha
been scarcely any Important business
failures and the business of tho com
munity seems to tie generally on a
sound foundation. All this has been
done with little blowing about it. The
year 15)00 opens with all business con
ditions more promising than ever for
further development, What has been
done In the past ten years can be done
ten times over with less strain than
tho former required.
What Is the next step In tho for
Mr. W. R. Crawford, while a State
Constable had the misfortune to kill
a Mrs. Stewart. lie was acquitted and
we think properly. Mr. Crawford
asks the Legislature to make an appro
priation to pay the expenses of his de
fense and presents the following bill:

that it bo paid from that fund.
