The Usual Penalties will
bo Added Today.
LEVY MAY BE RAISED.
Likely That the Legislature Will Raise
Levy Two Mills on Recommendation
Of the Governor.
Columbia, Dec. 29.?Gov. Ansel was
asked today by the correspondent of
the News and Courier whether he
would extend the time for paying taxes.
His reply indicated that he is not
disposed to do so, but he stated that he
would tomorrow talk the matter over
with Comptroller General Jones, and
would then announce his conclusion.
Gov. Ansel said that he had thought
of the matter, but had not had it put
before him in any definite form, and he
was very glad to have the suggestion
made for his consideration. He' said,
however, that at this time he was not
inclined to favor an extension of the
time for two reasons. In the first place,
the State has some heavy obligations
to meet on the 31st of December, in
the form of notes held in New York,
and these would have to be renewed if
the payment of taxes was postponed.
This would mean an admission that the
State's finances are not in the best con
dition, and besides would entail an in
crease in interest charges. In the sec
ond place, the penalty for non-payment
of taxes is not very heavy for the first
month alter the time expires, being
oidy one per cent, up to the first day
of February; and to the average tax
payer, who cannot pay at this time,
this penalty will not amount to a great
deal. For the second thirty days the
penalty is an additional one per cent.,
and after March 1 it is an additional
five per cent.
The governor has been in consulta
tion during the last week with the
State treasurer in regard to the pay
ment of the interest and the notes due
on the 31st of December, and it has
been apparent that the State will have
a close shave on this matter. The
county treasurers have, for some rea
son, been very slow about sending in
the tax money, and if collections have
not been slow with the county treasu
rers some of them have been dilatory
about transmitting to the State treasu
rer. The State treasurer recently sent
out a letter, urging that they forward
the money as quickly as possible, and
this action met with the governor's ap
The governor realizes that financial
conditions have much to do with the
slowness with which tax money is com
ing in, but he fears that to extend the
time would be merely to transfer the
dilliculty from the taxpayers to the
State itself, and might not in the end
afford any real relief. Gov. Ansel has
given careful study to the tax question
and to the financial condition of the
State. He has determined to make a
recommendation in his message which
will be somewhat startling to many,and
which requires good nerve to make. He
will urge that the levy be raised two
mills, or (hat a special levy of two
mills be made for the purpose of plac
ing the State on a cash basis, and to
put a stop to the practice of paying in
terest on interest.
The General Assembly, at the last
session, reduced the levy on-half of one
mill, bringing it down from five to four
and one-half mills.
Governor Hey ward had two years ago
recommended that the levy be increased
to live mills, making a gradual increase
for the purpose of placing the State on
a cash basis and raising a revenue suffi
cient to provide for the appropriation
made by the General Assembly each
year, and this was done by the Legisla
ture. Gev. Ansel is going still further,
and will recommend a levy of two mills
for this purpose, to be kept up until
the State is able to pay its debts and
meet the interest on the bonded debt
without having to borrow money to pay
interest. Gov. Ansel considers it bad
business judgment to proceed in the
present way, and thinks that the levy
should be commensurate with the ap
propriations if the appropriations are
not reduced to come within the levy.
_ J. H.
Gov. Ansel yesterday announced posi
tively that ho would not extend the
time for the payment of State taxes.
A numbor of ollicials have recently
written him on the subject and Inquired
as to his intentions and, after a confer
ence with Comptroller General Jones
yesterday, the governor decided that it
would be useless to extend the time.
* His excellency thinks that the small
I penalty of one per cent, in January and
an additional one per cent, in February
was fixed so that no hardships would be
worked on thoso who are unable to pay
up by the first of the year. He also
believes that if the Legislature will
make an additional levy of two mills
State taxes for three years the finan
ces will be on a sound business basis,
and it will not be necessary to borrow
between $350,000 and $500,000, the con
Htltutional limit, every year. After
this, he thinks the levy can bp lowered,
and with the riso in values and fico
nomical expenditures the Stato will
unve a considerable amount in interest.
It has boon several years since the
fimo for tho payment of taxes was ex
pended, the Jast time being In J001, by
Gov. McSweeney. At tha? time the
ollicials believed it necessary, a"1' the
poor crop outlook demanded the step.
Since then, however, the farmors hftve
been prosperous, and Gov. Anstl

THEFT OF COTTON.
Arthur and James Kilgore and Lnrkin
Shell, All Colored, Arrested Yes
Two bales of cotton were stolen from
the gin house yard of Mr. Mack Bryson
at Ora late Monday night before Christ
mas and Arthur R. Kilgore, James K?
gore and Larkin Shell, all colored, are
in jail charged with the theft.
The cotton had been produced by
tenant on the plantation of Mr. J. L.
McClintock and when it was discovered
to have been stolen the wagon was
traced to Laurens and the cotton found
and identified. It had been sold to Mr.
W. L, Gray by Arthur Kilgore early
Tuesday morning. The team belonged
to Larkin Shell. Shell claims to know
nothing about the matter except that
Kilgore borrowed his wagon.
An unusual circumstance connected
with the affair was that Arthur Kilgore
paid $70.00 of the money to a merchant
on a debt that he owed.

NEGRO KILLED AT GOLDVILLE.
Efforts to Apprehend His Slayer Prove
Futile so Far.
The only Christmas week tragedy in
Laurens county so far as reported oc
curred at Goldville Saturday night when
Dave Huntei*, a negro originally from
Union county, was shot and killed on
the railway platform. Hunter was shot
through the head with a 38-calibre bul
let and death was instantaneous.
The night passenger train from Co
lumbia to Laurens was leaving the sta
tion just as the fatal shot was fired,
and as there were a number of people
about the station and store no one
seemed to know who shot Hunter.
Shoritf Duckett was notified of the
killing and at once sent his alert dep
uty, Mr. A. R. Sullivan, who was ac
companied by a mighty good lieutenant
to the scene. The officers made dili
gent search during the remainder of the
night for a suspect without success.
Early Sunday morning the hunt was re
sumed, resulting in the arrest of the
negro wanted, one Suber, wdio was held
for further investigation.
At 1 o'clock Coroner Watts held the
inquest over Hunter's body and the
jury returned a verdict to the effect
that the deceased came to his death by
gunshot wounds at the hands of parties
unknown to them. In consequence of
this action Suber was promptly re

VISITS t'OL. SHAW.

Afternoon and the Night With
Mis Old Friend.
United States Senator Benjamin K.
Tillman was a visitor in Laurens during
the holidays. His stay in the city,
however, was merely incidental to a
visit to his good friend, Col. John D. M.
Shaw, at his home a few miles below
town. The Senator came up Friday
from his home at Trenton, where he
spent most of the holiday recess of
Congress, and stopped over in the city
for an hour or so, spending the time at
the oflice of the clerk of court. His
presence in the city was not generally
known but quite a number of friends
dropped in and chatted with him during
Later, accompanied by Mr. John F.
Bolt, the Senator drove out to Col.
Shaw's for the night and remained un
til noon Saturday. For seventeen
years, or since the advent of Senator
Tillman in L>outh Carolina politics, there
has existed a very strong personal and
political friendship between himself and
Col. Shaw, and he never comes tq^Lau
rens without visiting at the Shaw home.

CALL EXTENDED TO

Prospective Pastor is a North Carolinian
and at Present Supplies First Church
Sunday at the conclusion of the morn

byterian church, a congregational meet
ing was held for the purpose of calling
a pastor to the supply of this church

preach on that occasion were impressed
with his ability as a preacher and
thought him a most desirable man for
this work here. Of course it is not
