NO NEW DISTRICT
FOR THIS STATE
Project for South Carolina Slipping.
Not Enough Business.
Washington, Oct. 16.?The State's
correspondent !iad Information today
from a source which Is believed to
U)o ontlrely reliable and trustworthy
that there will be no new western
district of South Carolina, as con
templated in bills recently offered by
Senator Tillmau and Representative
Alken, and that in all probability the
last lias been beard of this new dis
trict matter for a long time to come.
The reasons which are believed to I
(have brought about the present sit
nation arose from the fact that the;
department of justice is said to have
made careful and painstaking Inquiry
from blub sources j,s to the feast
foility of authorising this new western '
district and thai the Information
given by those to whom appeal was
made was to the effect that there was
not business enough in the proposed
western district, to Justify Its crea- *
tlon at the hands of congross. Most
of the fodoral business In South faro- '
Una, It is said, arises in what would |
1)0 the eastern district; there are no
admiralty cases in what would be the
western district, and the latter would
foe left to try almost altogether viola
tions of the internal revenue laws.
This is said to have been one of the
reasons which the department of
justice found to militate against the
plan of creating an eastern district.
It will readily be seen that with
nil of the most important business
of the federal court to be handled in
the eastern district, there would be
little left for the western district to
do, OXCOPt, as stated, to give atten
tion to Internal revenue eases. An
Other reason assigned is that should
the new district he authorized, it
"would result in the salaries of the
district attorneys and the marshals
l>< ing materially reduced.
While the salaries of those oillclals
tire fixed in the new bills now pend
ing at SIXiOO a year each .,t Is said
thai should the h?ls pass it would
result in a cut and that neither the
district, attorneys nor the marshals
would receive the aunounts inout'on
ed. In other words, two district at
torneys Would not receive sa.auil ;i
year, and two marshals woulo not re
ceive a similar ainoutn. This is one
of the reasons said to have been given
to Attorney Gonornl M ? Reynolds
why the St we should remain as it ia
now, with but one distrl -t.
This Information will doubtless be
received by many persons in South |
?Carolina with a considerable degrc ? of
Hiirprlse. Among the members of
the legal fraternity who have watch
ed the mattor closely it will dottotlei i
7iot lie acceptable news to learn that,
unless present plans are changed,
South Carolina will continue ivit'l but
one district, as now constituted.
Thoso two reasons are said to have
been satisfactory to the department
of justice, and The State's Informant
Avas of the opinion that in all prob
ability, as stated, there would 1"' no
new district, at least at this tine.
J/.ok of business in the new proposed
western district and the disposition
on Hi.- part of the government o!ll
ninls hero not to cut the salaries of
the men who will succeed Kniest P.
Cochran and J. A. Adams as district
attorney and marshal are the rea
sons, in brief, for the present situa
tion. Until today the prospects seem
ed especially good for the creation
