ON 1. That Section 13 of the
<; . ebarter of the town of Newberry be
amended byr adding after -the word
kState,' in line 5-, the following:
Proided, That in all cases the de
fendantshall have the right of trial by
jury and the :same right of appeal as
now allowed by law in Trial Justice
-ourts in the -State.", So that said Se
tion when amended sall read as fol
S, cno0 13. That the said Mayor
and Aldermen shall be vested jointly
and severally with jurisdiction in all
eriminal cases that shall occur within
the corporate limits of said town equal
to that now vested by law in Trial
Justices in this State: 1rovided, That
in all eases the defendant shall have
x .- the right of trial by jury and the same
fight of -appeal as now allowed by law
in Trial Justice Courts in this State.

during the -morning of each day the
Mayor, or acting Mayor, of said town
shall hold court-todisposeof such cases

SECnON 14. -That all Acts or parts of
Acts inconsistent with this Act be, and
the same are hereby, repealed.
The above is a bill introduced in the
Legislature a" its present session by
Mr. Blease. It has been before the
Judicisry Committee and has received
a favorable report. In fact, we believe
ithas passed t be House and will to
day receive' its first reading in the
Under our present charter the3Mayor
has jurisdiction the same as Trial Jus
tiees in eases that are violations of the
State laws, and the rule followed in
Newberry has been to turn all such
~ sses over to the Trial Justice. There
^ is no necessity or reason for making
out of the Mayor a Trial Justice. Be
sides, to-all-v a jury for . every little
offence that cones before the Mayor's
eourt for any and every violation of
the town ordinances, will entail un
toid and unending trouble and annoy
ance and make the Mayor's office
nothing but a Trial Justice court, and
be of no practical benefit to any one.
As to. appeals from the Mayor's
court we think that Judge Kershaw
was right hen he held that the right
appeals did exist. If it does not
It ought; but there Is no need or de
mand for a (jury in the many little
cases before -the Mayor. It is - o .be
hoped thatthls part of the bill at least
wilL be strickien out,
It must. have originated with Mr.
Bless. himself, because4he bill is quite

The mate will -be- brought to-the

do not want any such law, he will stop

The above Is from the Columbia cor
respondence of the News and Courier.
It will be a great pity if the Clemson
-College should get into politics. We
do not now say anything about the
fitnessof the two gentlemen mentioned
for the presidency, but no man should
- be elected to such position on .account
of his-political relations-to any faction
of the party. We do not believe that
the Board of Trustees will be goverred
by any such motives. If the college is
to succeed and prosper as an educa
tional institution it must be kept as
~free "from politics as .itis possible to
keep a State institution.
By the way, we were told the other
--day in Columbia that It had been set

We hav, noted that a bill will be in
troduced at the present session of the
Legislature to take from the sheriff the
-- business of dieMng prisoners confined
in jais and de'volve this duty upon the
county commissioners. The sheriff
gets thirty cents per capita for this.
Some political economist has calcu
lated that the actur' -ost of the umate
-rial per capita is not more than fifteen
eats. He wants to work a great re
form by thus rediptg the already
scanty perquisites of the sheriff who is
next to the hardest worked officer in
the county. The same gentleman
might get some glory by further re
ducing the pay of the witnesses for-the
State in criminal cases. They now get
50-cents a day. Thirty cents would be
less-a saving of twenty cents on each
witness. Then trial justioes might be
required to work for fifty cents a day:
Provided if the case should be con
cluded before 12m., his aggregate costs
shall not exceed the sum of twenty-five
You are right; such a bill as this
would be small economy. The sheriffs
are not only the hardest worked offi
cers, but are about the poorest paid.
* f the dieting of prisoners is taken
away, we suppose, the caring for pris
oners will also be taken away; unless
it is expected to devolve this duty on
thesheriff without pay.. The pay for
dieting prisoners has already\ been re

The present administration wentIntc
power on the plea ot '-reform" and-s
reduction of expenses. It has been in
power two years and starts out on it:
third year. On the subject of reform
the Greenville News has the following:
With this session of the legislature
the work of "reform' ought to be com
pleted so far as legislation can do it
and where is the 'reform?" The phos
phate royalties have been "reformed'
to a falling off of $80,000 from "the old
ring" time, the rail roads have been
"reformed" into the hands of receivers.
-Prohibition was not part of the "re
form" program. Yet it is the impor
tant question of this session.
The only other serious matter is the
proposed general railroad law. Then
what does all the "reform" and hurrah
amount to? I wonder if the most en
thusiastic "reformers" who face and
consider the cold facts, who weigh
what has been done by what has been
said and promised and threatened, dc
not find their stomachs turning a little
at all the empty brag and bluster and
There is as yet no sure indication as
to what will be done with the prohibi
tion question. The Legislature does
seem to know just what to do or
how to do it. The special: committee
consisting of one from each coun
ty has reported the Childs bill, a
synopsis of which we. gave last week,
favorably. A minority report has also
been made by this same committee.
This report wants an election next
August to decide the question by- all
the people. Some other members, wh o
themselves are opposed to prohibition,
but who desire to follow the letter of
the instructions given in the primary,
will not support any but some imprac
ticable bill, and oppose all others.
The Herald and News has never be
lieved. that this Legislature would pass
any prohibition bill at all.
The Legislature will pass the joint
resolution calling a constitutional con
vention. It will yet require a vote of
the people to say whethir they want it.
The only argument we have seen ad
vanced in favor of such convention is
that the present constitution was
made by the radicals. That is a very
small matter if the constitution is a
good one. If there is no other objec
tion to it we had better let it alone.
The salaries of the officials of the
Alliance have been pretty good, but at
the last meeting at Memphis they were
reduced and fixed as follows, and they
are still pretty good salaries fur which
those in the ranks are taxed to pay:
President, $2,000 per annum and ex
penses; Secretary, $1,500 and $300 for
expeses; Lecturer, $1,200 and expenses.
So the county Courts bill Is about
buried among the catacombs of the leg
islative cemetery. It is well It is so. We
do not need any rno e offices or officers.
We have enough already.
The Legislature has not yet reached
the bills that are to cause the big fights.
The railroad bill and the prohibition
bill are yet to be handled.
..OUR COLUMBIA LETTER.
hat the Lawmakers are Doing-spiey
Debate on the CaiIIDg of a Consttitu
[Correspondence Herald and News.]
COLUMBIA, S. C., Dec. 5.-There has
been a distinctively business and
routine flavor to the proceedings of the
General Assem bly during the last w..ek.
The hopper is full to overflowing and
the grist iscoming out right merrily.
The purpose is to rush throng) all
minor matters so that the decks will be
cleared for the consideration, of the big
questions that are pressing upon the
Thus far the incidents of moment
have been very few. It has been mostly
work and very little play. To-day the
14-page calendar of the. House was
stripped cf forty third reading bills, a
half dozen of which have already
passed the Senate and are now in the
bands of the clerks being made ready
for ratification. The Senate has done
so much weeding and pruning down
Lhat -on Friday it adjourned until
uesday in order to let the members
be at home on Saleday'and to allow the
Januse to catch up and send over some
Several attempts were made in the
House to follo w suit and take a rest
until to-morrow, but - Speaker Jones
ntly reminded the members that
heewere scores of routine matters
that needed immediate attention be
fore the House passed to the special
orders that have been set for considera
tion on Wednesday. The wisdom of
his suggestion was felt to-day when
the House adjourned after having
completed the very necessary formali
ties on about sixty bills.
The Legislature will without doubt
mbmit the question of calling a con
stitutional- convention to the people.
This was one of the issues that were
decided by the'recent State campaign
ad the administration members say
that they intend to submit the bare
proposition to the people unhampered
ty any amendments whatever.
The opponents of the joint resolution
providing for the submission of the
guestion to the people say that their
bjectons are these: The resolution
makes no provision for allowing the
people to pass upon the handiwork of
such a convention, which, they claim,
isan important provision that is always
made by the various States.
The debate on the resolution in the
ouse last Friday suddenly became
ery spicy. The casus belli was an
mendment offered by Mr. Baeot tbat
he work of such convention be sub
itted back to the people for ratifica
:ion. This resolution was supported
y Col. John C. Haskell in a speech
urey argumentative and devoid of
Messrs. J. T. Duncan, of New berry,
md Wolfe, of Orangeburg, jumsped on
the Colonel," as Mr. Duncan called
lum, with both feet. Mir. Duncan said
~hat Mr. Haskell knew that the reform
nembers had made up theim minds to
br'ce the issue, but that he came here
ith his plausible arguments in order
o divert attention from the fact that
2e was fightingagainst aconstitutional
~onvention, and then he could go back
o the people, like some demagogues
id, and tell them that he was trying
o preserve their rights. "Now, watch
:he Colonel," said he, "and vote down
my amendment that comes from this
Mr. Wolfe charged Col Haskell with
osing as a patriot and said that he and
2s faction were vigorously opposing
;his demand of the people with sleight
Mr. Blesse tried to save Mr. Wolfe
rom what he knew would be the con
sequence of his remarks about Mr.
Raskell, by interrupting him with
some call to order, but Mr. Wolfe had
ever "been there" before and kept
Mr. Jordan, of Aiken, took a hand
n the discussion and said the opposi
tion idea was that the new regime
coud not .be trusted to make the con
titution, and that they were dealing
in subterfuges in order to get the minds
dition that they could defeat the
In his reply Mr. Haskell referred to
the young members who had made the
insinuations against him as "suckling
Solons" and said that he had been
falsely charged with motives that he
had never dreamed of. He spoke of
Mr. Wolfe as the young man whose
name he did not know. Mr. Wolfe in
terrupted him and disclaimed having
made any personal allusions to him.
Mr. Haskell protested against the in
auguration of this custom of imputing
motives to a gentleman. He said that
all the wisdom that comes to the Leg
islature from youog members is a recog
nized fact and that he had never seen
the time when the House did not have
some young gentleman just from
school who could teach the older mem
bers everything. The charge that he
was w,rking against the good of the
State was false "as emphatically as the
English language could make it."
Mr. Gary, of Abbeville, jumped up
to say something about Col. Haskell's
reference to "young members" when
the latter told him that he referred
only to thore who had attacked him.
There was a further spat between
Col. Haskell and Mr. Duncan until Mr.
Duncan was made to understand that
Col. Haskell was not the author of the
amendment when he begged his par
don for having said anything barsh.
There came very near being a scene
in the House, and Speaker Jones had
to tell the disputants that be hoped
they would avoid imputingmotives on
the floor of the House.
The resolution passed its second read
ing by a vote of 94 to 16.
Perhaps the most vigorous fight the
Legislature has ever known- will be
the struggle over prohibition. It has
been said thatthe Legislature is over
whelmingly in favor of prohibition,
but there are features already devel
oped that go to show that the result is
problematical. A great many members
came here to vote for some sort of pro
hibition bill in deference to the test
vote at the primary, but there are indi
-cations that the Childs bill, which has
been reported favorably, is regarded by
them as too sweeping.
The antis have taken advantage of
this feeling and they have worked with
the special object in view to give these
doubting ones a chance to get out of
voting for prohibition and at the same
time to avoid incurring the direct dis
pleasure of their prohibition constitu
This opportunity is furnished in the
Perry bill, introduced by the member
from Greenville. It provides that the
question be referred to the people at a
special election to be held next August,
registration not to be a qulification, and
if a majority favor it then prohibition,
as provided for in the bill sh4ll go into
The question then is: Shall we pass
the Childs bill, putting the sale of li
quor for purpose named only in the
hands of dispensary agents or shall we
refer the matter to the whole people
irrespective of party?
When it is remembered that such
strong prohibitionists as Mr. Nettles,
of Clarendon, are opposed to the Childs
bill and will not vote for it, and that
several others who have introduced
prohibition bills are likewise opposed
to it, it will be seen that this whittling
down of the question is a distinct ac
cession of strength to the anti side. In
addition to this the liquor men and
their counsel are collecting here from
all,parts of the State- and the lobbying
that will go on this week will be some
thing wonderful to behold.
* The majority and minority reports
have been made the special order for
Wednesday. The dcbate will last all
that day and may be continued into
*the next. It is safe to say that if the
minority report is defeated there will be
an avalanche of dilatory motions and
the parliamentarians will exhaust all
of their skill before they will let the
question come to a direct vote. It is
said that there are several speeches on
the schedule for that day.
-The Senate has not tackled the ques
.tion yet and is waiting until thbe test is
made in the House.
The refundment of the State debt is
one of the most important questions
that is - before the Legislature, but as
yet it has scarcely been touched. It is
thought that the members are await
ing some special message from Gover
"or Tiliman on the subject as he has
eceived a proposition from Mr. Ryan,
of Augusta, which he is said to favor.
The only bill that has beer.introduced
touching the matter is the joint resolu
tion by Mr. Haskell providing that the
Secretary of State shall publish notice
that all bonds which are not met at
maturity will lie, at the option of the
holders, extended for four years at the

Col. Has -ell says that the plan was
suggested to him by a man who has as
high repu tation in financial circles as
any :nan in America. His views were
that the State would find herself on
the 1st or July with her debt matured
and without funds sufficient to pay it.
This would be insolvency and utterly
ruinous to her credit. The State would
then find it im possible to sell her bonds
at all and the investment of foreign
capital in the S'a'e would cease, but
