Washington, Dec. 8.-Important
changes in parcel post regulations,
including general reduction in rates
and 'increase in maximum weights
have been approved by the Inei
ltiatc Commerce Commission 'Phe
'revisions were 'made upon the recom
mendation of Postmaster Ceneral

the frst and second zones from 20
to 50 plounds, and in all zones beyondt
the second from 11 to 20 pounds; and
rates are reduced in the third, fourth
and sixth zones
The changes in rates to 'be In -ef

errode vetoes of Governor -Blease on
the appropriation and other bills with
lightning-like rapidity. The session
closed in a tempest, and many politi
cal observers are saying that 'the re
sentments endangered in the closing
hours of last session are going to
lbreak out early this time. That re
mains to 'be seen.
The session now rapidly drawing
near is the last of the present body.
It being on the eve of a campaign for
the( United States Senate, Governor
and all State offices, the General As
sembly, which is soon to gather, is
likely to make history. Both the Ad
ministration and Anti-Administration
leaders know this, and both sides will
be quick to take advantage of any
thing which wouild, in their judgment,
increase their hold with.the people.
Stet enson et al vs Blease.
At the head of the Anti-lllease forc
es in the lower house stnnds Repre
sentatives' W. F. Stevenson, of Ches
terfield; W. II. Nicholson, of Green
wood: J. T. Liles, of Orangeburg, and
others. Around them are gathered
able men. With Representative C. C.
Wyche leading the lcense forces, and
ably assisted by Representatives C.
N. Sapp, of Lancaster; ".Tosh" Ashley,
of Anderson, and others, the political
debates will .prove interesting. The
House is Ant 1ilease, but by what ma
jority is hard to say...
The Senate is Anti-hlicase by two
thirds, but being a more conservative
body than the lower branch, faction
al politica do not play such a leading
part there in the debates. Senator
McIaurin and Senator Nicholson will
attract more than usual interest this
year, the first because of hIs expect
ed announcement for the Unitedl
States Senate and his fight for the
warehouse 1b111, and the other because
'he will have charge of the efforts to
get through legislation safeguarding
