The county delegation is to be con
mended for allowing an appropriation
for the county fair. There is hardly an
other expenditure listed upon the sip
ply hill that is calculated to be of more
real benefit than this one and one that
effects such a large proportion of the
citizenship of the county. The fair,
while very successful in the past, hag
had but a straggling and struggling
existence, much li need of solid finan
cial support. This alpropriation, then
provides for the fair's greatest need
and should give It such an impetus
that the next fair will prove larget
and more proiltable than any that la

It can hardly he said that the legis
lature just adjourned held a notable
session, though it. may be said that. its
accomplishments are worthy of much
notice. The session was a noticeably
(quiet and orderly one, free from the
spectacular, where brilliant flashes
gave way to painstaking work.
To our liind two measures passed
at. this session holding out mnuch rIom
ise of good are the hills providing for
the Torrens system of land registra
tion and the one providing for a con
inission to study rural credits. The
two systems naturally oualgi to be con

how much can be said in a few words.
The entire Act consists of exactly
twenty-five words, and reads:
"No child under the age of 14 years
shall be employed in any factory, mine
or textile establishment of this State
after January 1. 1917."
There was no need to say more.
Another suggestion of Governor
Manning's that will be studied from a
legislative standpoint is how rural
credits might be introduced to advan-.
tage in this State. There were sever
al proposition offered, all of them hav
ing merit, but too detailed to be ab
sorbed and the General Assembly ap
pointed a commission to make a care
ful study of the situation, and if in the
meanwhile something practical can be
worked out and the people can be edtu
cated to the possibilities of the rural
credits system, a beginning might be
made at the next session of the Gen
eral Assembly as a result of the pres
Another step forward was made In

There can be no question of the
hold that the State warehouse system
had upon the members of the General
Assembly. Whatever ('ommissioner
M cbaurin asked for was granted.
Whether this be a tribute of Mr. Me
Laattrin, as an individual, or Whether it
is to his administration as warehouse
comm1 issioner, o:' to the systen itself.
and its posshilities, remains to be de
veloped. One thing is certaitn. antid that
is that the warehouse systet has a
;otclh hol(1 on the political situation
in this State today.
One of the essential Const ructive
iiiasur'e that failed looked towards the
establishment of a State highway coms
imission or some other method of ha r"
monizing and developing the road
building of this State. 'l'lte majority
of the members apparently favored
sotne State system, but they Conhi Inot
auree upon any one method of hand
liI this situation, were afraid of the
name "commission," amI had to ni
counter the desire of each county to
hold ite revenue frotm the proposed
automobile license and thereby for the
time being a State-wide system failed.
This will come in time.
('oust itut tonal amendments had
rough skating, and all of them fell
down the first time they tried to roll
round. There were three proposed
ialmen(mltents to the fundamental law
of S-late-wide import'ance: l'irst. I le
one looking to woman's suffrage; see
ond onie looking towards biennial ses
sions, and third, the Wolfe proposi

of divorces tinder certain conl itions.
Neither of these three ideas got, by
One of the measures that excited
considerable debate and in which
there was the only suggestion of a lit
buster, was on the bill which excom
muinicates the Southeastern Tariff As
sociation from South Carolina. This
action it. Is suggested is a sequtel to
the contention of the warehouse com
missioner on the matter of tie in:urt
ance rates. This, added to the al
leged arbitrariness of the rate-makipig
bureau, persuaded the majority of the
legislators to chase the Tariff Associa
tion out of the State, and South Caro
lina is for a second time going to try
some method of handling fire inst; -
