(Aulumibla, January 23.- -The General
Assembly has now been ii session tor
nearly two weeks. Although the work
has beei persistent and coittiuous.
the end is not yet, in sight. The real
issleit have not been toneled, and nto
really tim port'ant mleasu%re hits been
passed up)n by both brianches o! the
Assembly, execpt it be tohe reolition
to extenld the tie for the payment uf
taxes without penalt.y. Trae qiiito it
num1ber1 of imIportant, measures have
been acted upon independently by the
two houses, but, there has not yet, been
'ty conert of ation. The disposition
has been manifest to kill off objection
able he. *slation, and, of eouise, the
usual allowan.e has to be made for un
IIeessary legislation. No possible
omlplaint can be made by any one as to
the disposition to work, but unfortu
n0ately there seems to be no eurtall
ient of proposed legislation ---the vast
majority of the measures are of purely
local coneern. and there seeis to be no
way to stop this perennial and pesti
ferous ftood of local matters, and yCt
without theso propositlions the Gov
ernniot would wag along just as so
renely as ever. It is pleasant to say
that no "fool legislation" has yet show n
it self. In the assemblies of two other
StIAtes there are bills with regard to
kissing, in another an Act was passed
prohibiting foot ball, but happily to
such measures have yet been lpresenlted
at Coluibia. The doctrilno of Col.
Georg1 1). Tillman, as to self-govern
menit., seeslis to be on the in0rease.
WiAT AnOUT TiHE SESSION?
Why, that is just about as uncertain
a thing as th uiltimate fate of the dis
penisary. When the nmtmbers came
here no ono Paw anyi need for more
than a thirty-day session-there was no
need before the new Constitu.tio, but
iatters have jogged along until almost
two weeks have slipped by, and still
there is no tlispensar y bill before either
houso, and tho appropriation and sup
ply bills are still hung up in the Col
mitto room. here is room for radi
cal improvement along these lines, and
while the ways and means cominitteo
ha1s had a great mass of wor-k, and has
had to hear from many interests, a
skeleton bill ought to be in tho hands
of the members by the middle of next,
week. So it is with the dispensaLry
committOee, iimade up of rine member
from each of the counties.
While thoro is still n1o reasonl why
the session should last over th Irty days,
the outlook just now is that it will be
longer. The d1laispnary legislation
seems to be the bone of contention, yet
if a bill comes before the -1ouse, with
good endorsoment, leavirig tne status
practically as at pesont, and aimed at
the "Or1igLnal packago" stAres, it, enn
he r'ushed through as of 0old, and not
mutch will b)0 saId about it eit,ber, as
t,his scomns to be a time wuhien few want
to assume resp)onsib)ility as dispensary

Th'le General Assembly is as munch at
sea as ever oni t,he dispensary quest,ion.
No eoie seemi~s able to solve the pendling
probhlm. The anniounicement ini the
News arid Courier that the judiciary
committee of the llouse of Reproscrita
tives in Washiingtoni is unanitnously
unfavorably disposed to the Tilimami
Lat,ie resolut.ion has put a dlecided
dlamp)er oni the situartion, and left but
litt.l doubt that Jludge Simontoni's deC
01810on will be sustained by the Suprce
Court. The Hotuse judiciar'y comminit,
tee ini Washington has not, however,
inado a report upon the bill, arid wvill
give a hearing on the matter Tueday,
arnd Mrt. J. P. KC. Biryan will rappear'
atgainst, the bill, while Mr. IBarber has
been invited to present the Stato's side
of the case. It, is very niuch a case of
"'is of the siamnr op)inrion st,ill.''
Several days ago the chaiirmanr of
the louse juiiiary committee in Co
lurmbia otTed( a resolution asking the
Attorney General to priesont his views
of the sit,uation, in the shape of a bill.
TI'is reosoltution was withdr'awn, as the
spoecial legislative committee had al
ready sought the co-operation of Gen,
l3arbor, it is urnderstood that Mr'.
lharbor has emphatically anid coturto
otusly deelinied to prepare a bill, oir to
be responsible for any proposed legislai
tiorn. lie will willingly give his advice
or suggestion to tihe spoiatl committ,eo
but will rnot bo responsible for a bill.
To prepare a bill and then to have
seome one else look after the on force
mont makes the matter rather compllex
The special House committee has a
riuimbor of bills before it, which seeks
to solve the problem, bu't the only oe
that attempts to go into the matter
fully is that of Mr. Polloek. Hie seeks
to putt the original package stores on
the same plane as the dispensaries, es
p)ecially with r'eference to the signing
of applieations-a veritable farce now,
and further proposes that all "original
package" agencies pay the cotinty
treasuir'rs 20 per cont. of the gr'oss
The Senate seems disposed to see
whether the House cannot solve t,he
prolem for it, although the tunder
standing is that there 18 increasIng

Poses that the entire State have prohi

that each of the counties determine
whether it would like to ehange that

The whole tendency jI)OL now is to

to pass a bill direetod against the

Whetn one sees what OUIher States

Although South Carolinasent out from
