the important issues to be considered
will -be the tightening up of the pri
'mary system. There are already pend
ings bills on this subject. The Gover
nor, as is known, is opposed to any
changes and there promises to be live
ly contests over this topic. As machin
cry has to be provided for the selec
tion of a United States Senator and
perhaps for the Presidential primary,
under State authority, the chances are
that something will be done. Some ar
gue that the primary should be han
dled by the Democratic party, but
now that the People are to elect Uni
ted States Senators and there is a pro
posal to get the sentiment in Presi
lential prinaries, something will have
to be done by the State itself.
Little will be t.ne at the opening of
the session except to interchange

a session of the General Assenatbly to
continue 'beyond the Christmas holi
days, which meant a thirty-day ses
sion. When the Constitution of 1895
was adopted the idea was to provide
for several long sessions, where were
to friyne laws that would conform to
the new Constitution. The lawmak
ers have, however, gotten away from
the original idea and from the thirty
day sessions and think they are bound
to have at least forty-day sessions.
This is not the case, as they are paid
by the session regardless of the time
spent in Columbia. As a matter of
fact, if the legislators, in advance,
fixed the time and stuck to it they
could with all ease do everything that
is to be done In thirty days' time.
There are to be an unusual number
of elections by the General Assembly,
including the Chief Justice of the Su
preme Court, several Circuit Judges,
Insurance commissioner and numerous
members of boards of trustees of
State colleges. he personal equation
is all that has thus far entered any of
these contests, although there is spir
ited nivalry for 'many of the places.
The report is that there are twenty
eight candidates in the field for the

Commissioner Watson in his annual
report recommends more labor legis
letion. He calls attention to the good
results which have come from the en
ictment of the Factory Inspection Act,
regulating hours of labor in mercan

%Mr. Watson recommends a law pro
viding for the collection of vital sta
tistics, saying that the law is needed
in the enforcement of the child labor
laws, that the Messenger Boy Act
should be made to apply to boys work
ing in stores, places of amusement,
cold drink standh and offices, and that
newsboys should be prohibited from
working-before 6 A. M. or later than 8
P. M., that an Act should be passed
prohibiting absolutely the use of the
suction shuttle in any cotton mill af
ter July 1, 1914, that no women be per
mitted to work after 10 P. M., that the
provision allowing making up of time
in the hours of labor In textile plans
be repealed and "substituting therefor

For Better Protection.
Commissioner Watson recommends
the requiring of all factory buildings
to be equipped with fire escapes, that
all dangerous machinery and beltings
in all manufacturing plants and work
shops be 'properly safeguarded, to re
(uire proper ventilation and sanitation
of manufacturing -plants and work
shops, and confer authority on the
commissioner to enforce the regula

enacted providing for the inspection

eral regulations applying to manufao
turing plants in the matter of the
holding back of wages of employees,
to require the reporting by employers
to the commissioner of all industrial
accidents upon blanks to be furnished
for that purpose.
Mr. Watson would amend the law
prohibiting employment of children,
and increase the minimum age from
12 years to 13 years, after January 1,
1915, and to 14 years after January 1,
1916. He calls attention to the fact
that most of the States have 14 years
as the age at which children must ar
rive before they can be employed in
cotton mills or other manufacturing
plants and he thinks that the time has
now come when South Carolina ought
to raise the limit from. 12 to 14 years,
gradually.-vNews and Courier.
