REVIEW OF WORK
(Continued from page one.)
House and Senate think they have
passed the necessary legislation, but
the election has not been definitely
scheduled, chiefly because Governor
Dlease has not had the opportunity
of approving the Act relative to the
new member of the court It is ex
pected that he will have approved the
Act by Monday and the time for hold
ing the election can then be agreed
to. The House has indicated Wed
nesday as being agreeable for the
election, and this time may be selected
Too Many Bills.
There have been more bills intro
duced during the present session than
in inauy previous years. It is curious
that so many bills are introduced
when there is little or no hope that
they will be enacted. The observa
tion of the most experienced members
Is that those who Introduce one or
two bills and concentrate their en
ergies on these measures accomplish
the real results. Members with twen
ty or thirty bills have difficulty in
Given Good Advice.
One of the most distinguished law
makers who ever came to Columbia
was Solicitor .1. Monroe Johnson, of
Marion. He prepared the celebrated
original dispensary law and knew how
to draw bills that held In the courts.
He met a young member on the
steps of the State House whom he
knew very well end undertook to give
him some friendly and fatherly ad
vice. In a word, it was that the best
thing he could do was to introduce
no bills, unless they wore absolute
ly necessary, help 10 Mil nine-tenths
of those that were proposed and go
home as soon as possible.
Appropriation Bill Ncurlj Ready.
The ways and means committee has
practically completed its work on the
general appropriation bill, and the
announcement was made by Chairman
Browning that it would be presented
on Thursday. If this shov.ld be done
tho House can finish on this import
ant bill by the end of the week, as
there need be but little difficulty in
accepting the House bill, as the com
mittee has worked with such care and
exactness in getting the bill in the
' best and most economical shape.
Railroad Hills ".Merger" Resolution.
There have oeen a great many bills
proposed affecting the railroads and
the business of that branch of activi
ties. The Carllsle-Dlxon bills, rela
tive to the pulling of mileage by the
conductors on the selling roads, lias
not yet been taken up in either branch
Both of these bills have divided com.
mit tee reports.
The Senate resolution providing for
the discontinuance of the "merger"
suit has been referred to the House
jwdlelary committee. .?. similar reso
lution, by Dr. Saye. has been acted
upon by the railroad committee, where
it has received a practically unani
mous report In favor of the adoption
of the resolution.
The sentiment of the House is in
favor of passing the resolution and
stopping the appeal.
For Highway ('omission?
There is a strong likelihood of a
highway commission bill passim; and
becoming law. The only difficulty is
in uettinu together on sone one de
finite plan. The scheme is to raise
the fund for the support of the engi
neers and the work by a direct tax
on automobiles. The idea is that a
graduated tax on automobiles, based
on the horse power, will raise con
siderable money. The plan fs to have
the tax begin ttt $in for all automobil
( of 20-hoiSO power or i >ss. ami for
this entire fund to be used in the cm*
i ploymcnl of competent engineer* and
exclusively for highway road work,
and not on the general road work of
The House has passed the hill pro
viding for the distribution of the sal
vage from tho old state dispensary.
The fund will run between (-100,000
The general appropriation bill will
probably run more in the aggregate
than in previous years, on the ground
that the State is growinp One thing
has been settled, and that is where
the general assembly will go on Lee's
birthday of next year. The Institute
for the Deaf. Dumb and Blind and
Spartanburg have been the early birds

Carolina to Grow a Better Staple
An exposition to encourage the
farmers cf South Carolina to grow a
better staple of cotton will be held in
Columbia during the fall under the
direction of Ira W. Williams, the
State agent of the L'ntted States farm
For the past year Mr. Williams has
conducted a camoaign In the State,
with most effective results, to interest
the farmers In the growth of a longer
staple cotton. This campaign has
been conducted in conjunction with
the South Carolina Manufacturera'
association. The association and
Lewis W. Parker of tJreenville gave
the sum of $2,000 to prosecute the
The cotton manufacturing plants of
South Carolina are gradually chang
ing from the manufacture of coarse
to a liner grade of goods and a better
staple of cotton Is needed. The long
staple cotton required brings a much
higher price. Several days ago a
fanner In Anderson county sold live
bales of the long staple cotton for
IS cents a pound.
There will be a number of prizes,
aggregating several hundred dollars
in value, to be given at the cotton
exposition for the best results ob
tained by South Carolina farmers dur
ing the year. The date of the expo
sition has not been decided upon.
All farmers desiring to enter the
contest should apply to Ira W. Wil
liams for information as to the kind
of seed to be used for the best results.
