ANOTHER LAW sUIT.
Ianufacturers of Piatols will Resist the
License Law in Every County.
[Special to the Register.]
CTAILEsTON, S. C-, June 15.-The
State is about to have another vexa
tious law suit thrust upon its hands,
rowing out of an Act of the last Legis
ature. The law providing for a license
of $200 for the sale of pistols and pistol
cartridges, which goes into eff'ect on the
22d instant, will be resisted by the
manufacturers of these articles.
Thiey have retained Mordecai and
adsden, lawyers of this city, and have
instructed themi to resist the payment
'f licenses in every County in the State
here an attempt is made to enforce
the collection of the tax. Dealers
throughout the State will be notified
that the manufacturers will pay all the
expenses of the litigation. The fight
will probably be transferred to the
Federal Courts. The grounid upon
vhich the law is to he resisted is the
decision of the United States Supreme
ourt known as the original package
case, in which it was held that a li
cense on g'ods sent from one State to
aother in the original packages was
unconstitutional. The fight p)romises
to he as interesting as the Coosaw case
and the railroad and hank assessment
eases. The fight v'ill be made by
manufacturers in New York, Boston,
Hartford, Chicago and other cities.

those who are Identified with companies that
(0 not issue Tontine policies. The easiest a
demonstration of this Is to cite a few of the<
dividends declared in 1891 on some of the 20.
year Tontine plicies of the Equitable. For
example, the holder of Life policy No. 66,548
has enjoyed 610,000 of assurance for 20 years,
for which he has paid 65,450 in annual pre
miums. He is now able to draw a cash dlivi
dend of $4,154.30, andl may continue his as
urance at a reduced rate of premium.
Or, he can surrender his policy and add to
cash value to this cash dividend, and thus
draw a total of 67,213.60 in money. This is
equivalent to a return of all he has paid in
premiums, with simple in,terest added at the
rate of 3 per cent. per annum.
Or, lie can convert his policy andl dividend
into paid assurance for 613,380 (equal to 246
per cent. of the premiums paid),
The largest profits, however, are shown on
Endowment policies. Take the following
1. The holder of policy No. 64,925 for $5,000
has paid 64,798 in premiums. The present
cash value of his policy and dividends is $s,
449.45, equal to a return of all he paid, with
nterest at the rate of over 7 per cent. per
annum in addition.
. The holder of policy No. 65,442 for 610,
000 has paid $9,630 in premiums. The present
cash of plicy and dividends is 616,948.50,
equal to a return of all he has paid, with in

In answerc to he call fron the (oun
ty B.oard of examiners, about a dozen
truste's fromh ditlierent parts of the
county met at the School Commis

thur Kibler was chosen chairman of
the meeting and J. F. Brown, seere
several qjue.tio nhs of importance were
discussed, in fast all the questions in
the circular sent to the trustees.
The trustees as a rule reported their
school houses in ordinary condition.
This matter should be attended to
and all the sehool rooms should be
made comfortable before the next
school term begi:s.
Should the county be redistricted ?
was the next question discussed. The
majority of the trustees were in favor
of having the school districts made
smaller at an early day. A few were
of the opinion that the township plan
is good enough if the trusttees would
only do their duty and notestablish too
Th~e following resolution was carried
by a unanimous vote :

In regard to c:.rrying out the law as
to the assessessment of polls the follow
ing motion was carried : That each
board of trustees divide their district
in three portions as nearly equal as pos
sible, so that each trustee may have
work to do in looking up the unre
turned polls. The trustees should at
tend to this ma:ter as quickly as pos
sible as the cou:ty auditor is anxious
to place the names on his books.
There are a great many liable to poll
tax who never pay. They have through
carelessness or otherwise left the mat
ter unattended to. Township No. 1,
including the Newberry Graded School
district will have at 1e"ist :,00 more
polls this year than last. There are
other districts it- which a great many
names may be added to the list.

The Prosperity high School held its
losing exercises on last Weduesday
and Thursday nighst. G. B. Cromer,
Esq., made an address on Wednesday
night. We did rot have the pleasure
of hearing Mr. Crcmer, but know from
what we have si ace heard that his
speech was a good one, and met the
approval of his audience.
On Thursday night the regular exer

were a good number of children to take
part, and each one's speech or recita

About two months ago a number of
;itizens of the town petitioned the
County Board of Examiners to give
them a special sczhool district. The
petition was granted and in'a short time
the district will be laid off by a sur

has been for some tine.
