INCOME TAX LAW
TO BE ENFORCED
Comptroller General Jones Issues In?
structions to County Auditors to Go
After the Boys.
Columbia, November 30.?Determin
ed to enforce the provisions of the
income tax law vigorously, and also to
have the county auditors carry out
his instructions, Comptroller General
Jones has prepared and sent out a
circular of instructions to every.coun
ty in the State regarding this mat
ter. Gen. Jones has been gathering
data and information in regard to the
Income tax situation in all sections
or the State, and has opened a cam
paign to have the auditors of each
county have every person liable for
Income tax assessed. If a person
thought to be liable for the income
tax falls to make a return, the auditor
assess on account of said income tax
such amount as appears such taxpayer
is liable for, from the best obtaina
ble information, and a penalty of 50
per ceut is to be added.
Must Appear Before Auditor.
A person thought to be liable for
income tax, and failing to make the
return, is to be served with a notice
to appear before the auditor for ex
amination, the notice to be served by
the sheriff. In addition to the tax
payer, the auditor can summon and
require any other person having
knowledge of Iiis affairs to appear and
testily, and forms for these summons
es have been printed and sent out.
Form No. 1 is for ser ice on the tax
payer and Form No. 2 for service on
any person having knowledge of the
Governor Hlease will hack up Comp
troller General Jones In bis efforts to
have all persons liable for income tax
returns assessed, and any auditor fail
in.!; or refusing to carry out the In
structions stand a chance of being
removed by the Governor.
"Word to the Wise, Etc."
In a letter to Auditor M. L. Gulllck,
of Greenville Count}, Comptroller
General Jones calls attention to the
information he has relative to per
sons in that county liable for income
tax, who made no returns, and Gov
ernor Blease wrote on this letter "a
word to the wise should be sufficient,"
Clearly conveying the information that
he will hack up the efforts of the
Comptroller General to have Green
ville's auditor do his duty.
in the letter to Auditor Gulllck the
Comptroller General says: "You will
proceed to have the notice?Form No.
'?as per the circular of instructions,
served on each of them, together with
tho circular of instructions and in

the tax against them. As instructed
in circular, you should not take the
bare statement of any of them that
they are not liable to the tax. without
making a detailed examination Into
the tacts as required by the circular.
In every case require the taxpayer to
swear to his return on the income

John W. Sims, Whose Team Was
Struek by Train Near Hock Hill,
Lived Only Short Time.
Kock Hill. Nov. 30.?John W. Sims,
whose team was struck by passenger
train No. 27, in charge of Engineer
Bird and Conductor Brown, running
about an hour late last night, near
hear, died shortly afterwards. As soon
as the accident occurred the train
crew took the injured man aboard
and carried him to Ogdon, which is
near Iiis home, but about the time
they reached there he died, and his
body was sent back here last night to
await the arrival of the coroner to
hold an inquest.
The place that the accident occurred
was Steelo's crossing, just below tho
City and not very far from where an
accident occurred less than two weeks
ago, when the same train ran Into n
wagon load of negroes, killing a horse
and mule and injuring a negro man
and two women.
Coroner Louthlan of Yorkville this
morning empaneled a Jury, who, after
viewing the remnlns, went to the
Southern depot and were sent to the
scene on a special train. It is not
likely'that they will render a verdict
until tonight, as the crew of the train
will no doubt be summoned for exam

Report that the Death Trap be
Abolished?Disseminator of Disease.
Columbia, December 2.?"The board
found Tub sanitary conditions at the
Penitentiary much improved and that
all the recommendations made by the
board at a former meeting, looking to
wards Improving tbe sanitary and
health conditions at the Penitentiary,

rounding it were huch bettered, is still
In operation," said Dr. J. A. Hayne,
the secretary of the State board of
health, this morning, when ??ked for
the results attending the meeting of
the board here last night. "We reit
erated our position that the hosiery
mill at the Penitentiary was not a
proper employment for convicts, was
deleterious to their health and should
be abolished," he said, when asked If
any action had been taken relative to
this situation. The board at a form
hosiery mill he abolished and Gover
nor Blease took the same stand, it
heing alleged that it was a "consump
tive mill," to use the expression of the
governor In several speeches.
Wants Mill Abolished.
It has been held that the hosiery
mill breeded consumption and. In ad
dition to shortening the lives of the
convicts, made It dangerous in that a
convict employed there, when turned
loose after serving his sentence, en
dangered the lives of the people of
the State by spreading the consump
tive germs which are alleged to be
contracted from working in the hos
iery mill. The State board calls
strongly for its abolition. This hos
iery mill matter will more than like
