The ( ove; nor ' Mesage---Other
Business called the editor to Columbia
on Tuesday. In this way it was our
privilege to be present at the assembling
of the Legislature. Precisely at 12 o'clock
the House of Representatives was called
\ to order and the roll called. Nearly all
mbers 'e:- pr 1resent,. and the House
a once proceeded to business. Hon. S.
err1')A Pope was appointed on a committee with
and two others to wait upon the Governor, to
d for see if he had any message to deliver to
the House. Shortly afterwards the Gov
ialist ernor's Annual lessage was presented
e beerjand read. On motion of Mr. Pope the
a ouse adjourned to meet again at 7.30

to hard wa4, and not leave everything
for the closing days of the session.

THE GOvERNOR'S MESSAGE
In this connection we will give an out
line of Governor Richardson's Annual
The State debt is estimated at $6,400,
000. As the whole State debt is to be re
a; sdjusted in 1893 he endorses the recom
mendation of the Comptroller General,
that a limit be put to the time when the
State bonds may be exchanged, except by
special legislation. That is, the bonds
issued between 1868 and 1872 and the
ante bellum bonds, which are estimated at
F 2 7,000.
During the past year the Sinking Fund
Commission hzrs purchased and cancelled
$32,517.50 of Deficiencies, reducing the
debt by that much. There are still out
standing $20.238 of Deficiency Bonds,
which become due and payable July 1,
S1888. The Sinking Fund Commission
has $20,000 on hand of this debt, leaving
h.$400,000 to be met at maturity. It is
recommended that authority be given to
borrow this amount. He thinks this can
~be borrowed at 4 per cent. If so, and the
State maintains its credit, the whole State
debt can be refunded in like manner in
1893, and effect a saving to the taxpayers,
in interest, of $120,000.

No work has been done on the canal -
during the past year, except to prevent i
the work already done from being de- r
stroyed by freshets. The total cost of the t
canal up to Oct. 31.1886, was $130,705.68, a
of which $-3,130.71 was in cash and the
balance of $77,574.97 being the estimated
cost of the convict labor employed on the
work. Of the cash, the city of Columbia
furnished $6,222.10 and the balance was
appropriated solely from the surplus
earnings of the penitentiary. The esti
mated cost of completing the work is
$42,406.80 in cash and $128,220.10 in la- t
bor, making a total of $169,626.90. "So
far as dollars and cents, therefore, are
concerned, it becomes simply a question
of time whether it be true policy and wis- t
dom to throw away the one hundred and
thirty thousand dollars already expended,
by the final abandonment of the work."
The early completion of the canal by the
State is recommended.
It is recommended that the powers of N
the railroad commissioners be enlarged.
Most of the railroads in the State are
owned by corporations out of the State,
and who have no interest in building up I
and fostering our internal improvements
and there is a tendency to keep local
rates too disproportionase. The only
way, it would seem, to stop this would
be to give more power to the railroad
commissioners to regulate traffic.
An appropriation for the military is
recommended, and also for an annual en
campment of the whole or part of the
military of the State. It is also suggested
that a small appropriation be made to
pay the military companies that may be C
called on to aid the civil authorities in
preserving the peace.
Attention is called to the duty of the e
State in regard to disabled soldiers, and t
to the resolution of the "Darlington Sur- v

The usual appropriation of $2,500 to e
the State Agricultural and Mechanical L
Association is recommended. t
The various appropriations for the corm
pletion of the State House have amounted t
to $211,600. Of this amount all but $15,
021.03 has been expended. It is estimated
that $100,000 will be required yet to finish
the additional improvements, including
the fireproofing all the rooms and halls
according to the detailed plans furnished
by the architect. This appropriation is
"The opinion has heretofore prevailed t
that Trial Justices hold their office for (

by the Attorney General that if they be t
appointed during the recess of the Gen- b
eral Assembly, they hold only until the z

declaring that Trial Justices shall hold b
