Saintly and sinless Saviour, Mediator

when Rome was the imperial mistress

the name of Jesus, through whom alone
can man reach the immortal heights.
He entered the arena of life in a con
lition of poverty, humiliation and re

purity rather than personal pride. Alas,
that we fail so utterly to comprehend
the glory, grace and grandeur of his

and sorrow is soothed by the holy calm
which rests upon the earth.

And hear the angels sing!"

Trinity is the rightful ruler of States

session, wheni the lawmaker's liver gets

have fireworks in the next few days.
- ONLY A SHAM BATTLE.
The real fight of the session has been
on prohibition. Most of the other very
important bills have been strictly
administration measures, and they
have always rallied to themselves a
host of friends which it was vain to
oppose. But prohibition was certainly
not an administration idea, and the
Tilmanite legislators were divided into
half a dozen clans in regard to it. The
Conservatives strenuously opposed the
The conviction expressed in this
correspondence, that the Childs-Roper
bill would never become a law, is on
the verge of confirmation.
The bill passed its second reading.in
the House Monday night by a vote of
69 to 47. The following day it passed
its third reading by a vote of 42 to 66.
Mr. Blease, of Newberry, moved to
recommit the bill.
Those who voted for recommiiting it
are: Messrs. Anderson, Ashley. Barry,
Blese, Bruce, Cooper, T. C. Duncan,

The first Senatorial debate on the
subject occuirred. Friday on a resoln
tion introduced by Senator Fuller, of
Laurens, to require the judiciary
committee to report the bill that day.
The John Gary: Evans bill, providing
for State and county dispensaries from
which the stuff could be bought in
quantities from a half pint to five gal
lons, had been favorably reported, and
friends of the Roper bill seemed to be
dissatisfied on ccount of it not having
been hustled through and given .an
Senators Wilson, and Evans, mem
bers of the committee, and several
others, took the ground that the reso
lution was an imputation that the
committee was endeavoring to smother
the bill by unduly delaying it, and
they vigorously resented it. Senator
Finley made the fight for the resolu
tion, denying that it reflected
upon the good faith of the com
mittee, and arguing that since the
committee had already reported favo
rably upon the Evans bill, it must, to
be consistent, report the Roper meas
-ure unfavorably any way, therefore.
why keep it back?
The membere of the committee re
plied to this by declaring that they
felt bound. to respect the request of
both sides to be allowed a bearing.
The resolution was defeated by a vote
of 25 to 10. Inasmuch as the question
of reflecting upon the committee waS
involved in the vote it was not a fair
test of the prohibition strength.
PROHIBITION BILLS WITHOUT NUMBER.
Senator Brown's bill, the same as the
Timmerman License bill of last year,
came up Saturday. Senator Timmer
man staled that he had conscientiously
advocated such a measure last year and
that he still favored it. He moved to
continue the debate until to-day, and
the motion prevailed. This, with the
Evans bill and the Roper bill, will
come up in the Senate to-day and the
fighting will be furious. There will be
a stubborn minority who will insist on
the iron-bound Roper measure.
THE GOVERNOR APPROVES THIS.
The Evans bill is said to be stamped
with the seal of the Governor's ap
proval, and will enter the contest with
that advantage, but the Roperites will
fight it vigorously because they do not
believe that it is a prohibitory measure
The Brown-Timmerman bill is mere
by-play, and will only serve to give
those two gentlemen, and possibly one
or two others, an opportunity to vote
against the Roper bill. Ten or twelve
Senators will array themselves square
ly against any form of whiskey llegis
lation, and they will have abundant
power to embarrass the divided oppo
NO PROHIBITION THIS SESSION.
The situation is about .this: None of
the proposed bills can possibly reach a
third reading before Tuesday, and
there are a thousand chances against
any of them reaching it before Wed
nesday or Thursday. It is out of the
question for the Roper bill to pass the
benate. No other bill will have time,
if,passed in the Senate, to get through
the House. Then the supply bill will
be under consideration in the Senate
throughout the week, together with
the work of winding up pending mat
ters that cannot be passed over. There
are scores of local and private measures
on the calendar and their projectors are
mole desirous of fulfilling the wishes
of their constituency in regard to these
than they are to fool with prohIbition.
When, in addition to this, it is con
sidered. that the Senate has taken the
whole prohibition question in an easy,
don't care way, and. has shown no dis
position for spasmodic exertions,- the
conclusion is inevitable that prohibi
tion is stone dead so far as this session
is concerned-afact which is now gene
rally leonceded. Even Generalissimo
Nettles -writes, to his paper that the
Roper bill cannot pass.

THE "RAILROAD COERCION BrLL."
The Wilson railroad bill, known as
the "railroad coercion bill," has passed
both houses, and as soon as it is en
rolled and ratified it will receive the
Gvernor's signature, unless his Ex
cellency reads the signs of the times
differently. The vote in the House
was 66 to 37. The radical provisions
of the measure were-too strong for
some of the reformers and they refused
to vote for it. Mr. Blesse,'of Newber
ry, had spread on the journal the fol
lowing reason for voting against this
reform measure: Because I think the
bill should be amended, and the House
has refused to accept amendments of
fered by friene of the bill.
THE GOVER-NOR REFUsES TO IN
Saturday a number of prominent
railroad men called on Governor Till
man and presented him with an ad
dress, urging him to exercise his vetot
power. The address recites the de
plorable financial condition in which
the roads find themselves, and the
evils that are likely to follow from the
inordinate power given the Railroad
Commissioners to fix freight and pas
senger and joint rates.
2The Governor declined to interfere.
He predicted that the roads would not
suffer from the action of the comnmis
sioners, and took occasion to inform
the magnates that the prejudice felt
against the roads by the reformers was
attributable to their refusal to pay
their taxes and the consequent litiga
THE EMPLOYES TO PROTEST.
The emnployes of the roads who re
side in Columbia have called a mass
meeting for to-night to protest against
the bill. They.will call upon the em
ployes of railroads throughout the
State to meet and take similar action.
Among the men leading in this work
igman's movement are some who
wee cnsnicuou laders of the 'Pil1
tmanite forces in this county during
the late campaign.
The fact that these men recognize c
that the passage of the Wilson bill
threatens to throw them out of em- j
ployment goes to show very pointedly 1
its serio,is and menacing character. t
THE RACE FOR COMMISSIONERS.
Numerous candidates for Railroad
Commissioners have been loafing about
the legislative halls and hotel lobbies
and they are steadily multiplying.
Sligh, of Newberry, and Thomas, of
Sumter, who is one of the present
commissioners, are almost certain of
election, and the third place will go to 2
Yeldell, of Edgefield, or Stanland, of
Berkeley. The bill has been so amend
ed that no territorial lines will be a
qualification for membership. Mr.
Stanland is supposed to be the proprie
tor of a chance to beat Mr. Yeldell. r
The other candidates are Clerk Gray,
of the House, Galloway, Commissioner t
Duncan, D. W. McLaurin and Whit- t
man, of Union. The last named en- "
ters the race with a cordial recommen
dation for remarkable unfitness, which t
he personally sought and obtained t
from the Columbia State.
AN INSURANCE COMPROMISE.
The insurance bill to require compa
nies to make deposits with the State
Treasurer before doing business in the
State has practically defeated. Between
that and the bill to create an insurance
department there has been a compro
mise in the House, and on Saturday a s
bill requiring the companies to pay a t
license of $100 was passed.
THE SOUTH CAROLINA COLLEGE SAFE.
The supply bill passed its second
reading in the House Saturday. The t
South Carolina College by it gets $30,
000, an adequate sum, but it only t
escaped being cut down by one vote, t

THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT BILL TO GO "
Itreenis pretty sure that the county
government bill will go over for another
year. As introduced, the bill has many
defects and the Senators seem very
loath to essay the task of perfecting it.
Senator John Gary Evans, the author
of it, has been very anxious to have it
pressed, but while a change in the coun
ty government system seems to be
generally desired, there is a noticeable
lack of men who earnestly and aggres
sively advocate it.
CHARLESTON IS ALL RIGHT.
The scheme to put Charleston in the
"black district" has been knocked in

NO FREE PASSES.
The Senate sat down heavily on the
bill, which passed the House, to repeal
the act prohibiting the use of free
passes. The vote was 24 to 9. There
was no debate. The members of the
General Assembly would hardly have
"courtesics" lavished upon them by a

to repeal may save somebody fromt
