Annual Report ef Comptroller General
Ellerbe-The State's Idea Reardir,g
lHonest Assesiments Embodied
The annual report to the Legislature
af Comptroller General W. H. Ellerbe,
made public Tuesday, is a documeUL
of especial interest to every taxpayer
in the commonwealth. The paper is
exhaustive, and contains statements
and suggestions of more than ordinary
significance. Other interests attaches
t, the paper inasmuch as the depart
ment represented is one of the main
arteries in the economy of the adminis
tration. The salient features of the re
As required by law, I have person
ally attended to and made the annual
settlements in each county, except in a
few counties where I secured the ser
vices of a e!ompetent agent to make
such settlement for me.
These settlernenis in many respects,
in several of the counties, have not
proved satisfactory. Numerous errors
were detected and in some cases inex
csable irregularities were found, and
in others a shortage of accounts of
treasurers; and in one county (Union)
embezzlements of the school funds
were discovered. This case has been
turned over to the courts as required
by law for strict investigation and ac
tion. The errors detected bave been
corrected, and all monies placed in the
public treasury, except in Charleston,
where there is due from State taxes
$480.3;, from county taxes $4,912.76
and school and poll $2,602.18, a total of
$8,195.29; and in Sumter county $617,49
from State taxv, $30.6U from county
taxes, and from school and poll $262.94,
a total of $998.32; and in Union county
$415.30 from State taxes, making a
total of $9,608.91 due these respective
funds from the three counties named.
The balance from Union county
grows out of the county treasurer pre
senting a receipt as a voucher which
properly belonged to and had been al
lowed in t- e Itlement for 1888-89.
Information coies to me that county
treasurers in some cases deposit county
and school funds in bank and receive
therefor a small rate of iLterest on such
deposit, and often parties holding
claims against these funds are told that
no money is on hand to pay them.
A CHANGE SUGGESTED.
The irregularities that have been thus
revealed suggest to my mind that some
changes should be made in our system
of county collections and disburse
ments, and while it may have objec
tionable features I am now of the
opinion that one disbursing officer for
the State would remedy the existing
difficulties and irregularities.
A slight increase of the force (cleri
cal) in the office of the comptroller gen
eral would enable the work to be done,
and nearly every county in the State
having State depositories in them the
general public would not be inconve
nienced nor additional expenses be in
curred by such a system of county and

mission and other institutions of the
State under the law collect and dis
burse money. The adjutant and in
spector general disburses the money
appropriated for the support of the
militia when he is not a bonded officer.
The habit of extending the time for the
payment of taxes operates injuriously
upon the annual settlements required
by law. The time should be fixed at
about the first of January for the pay
ment of taxes without penalty and not
interfered with except in ordinary

the annual settlements.
I beg to call your attention to the
fact that the revenues from this source
are far less than from the same source
in other States coming under our ob
servation. The laws of this State now
require an annual license fee of $50',
which amounted this year to $5,S80.
-Also, each company doing .business in
the State is required by law to return
"gross premiums" for taxation, from
which source the State received taxes
on about $150,000. This year the re
turn of premiums amount to near
The three largest life insurance com- t
panies doing busiuess in this State
paid into the treasury of Georgia, as
reported by the comptroller general of
that State, near $10,000, and into the
treasury of South Carolina, as far as
the facts have been ascertained, $150.r
The gross receipts have not been re
turned regularly by any class of coin
panies doing business in the State ex- a
cept fire insurance companies, and
these have largely returned only the
gross receipts sent by agents to the
home office, and thus a large amount
escapes taxation. There is another
class of companies which slip into t'be a
State without complying with its '.aws
in any way and do m,ore or iess busi-t
'The law should be made more strin
gent along this line, with a view to -
prohibiting such business. As it niow ,
stands the law afiords no adequate pr..

the comptroller general to revoke the
license of such companies, which pro
hibits further lawful business, but does
not afford relief to the citizen of the
State who took risks with such com

All companies admitted luto Soutl
Carolina should be charged at least thi
same fees and charges that a Soutt
Carolina company would, by the Stat,

words the comptroller general or !nsur
ance commioner should be given .au
thority to grade the charges against
company by those made by the corm
pany's own State so as to make our in
4urance law reciprocal as between thf
St.es or other counties.
The Comptroller General can dis
charge the duties of insurance cownmis
sioner, but, with his present experience
inclines to the opinion that an insur
ance department, either separate o
subject to the control of the Comptrol
ler General, would be a matter of econ
omy to the State, and properly guarde(
by law, with elfficieut management
would increase the revenues to thi
State proportionately to that of othe:
States from this source.
