Information About the
(The State, 3d.)
In the Attornpy General's oflico
these days there are continually aris
ing questions of interest to the pub.
lie. In the last fr w days quito a
number of such questions have been
disposed of. Three of these opin
ions are given below.
In a reply to a gentleman from
Anderson, Att,rnoy General Bollin
Dear Sir: You ask in yours of the
21st, my opinion as to whether one
who has been appointed to the po;i
tion of Supervisor of the census un
der the United States government
can at the same time hold the office
of magistrate within this State; to
which I answer:
In my opinion he cannot, as the
constitution of 1890 expressly pro
hibits any one person from holding
two oflices at the same time.
You further ask what in my opin
ion would be the status of cases tried
before the person acting as magis
trate after appointnout under the
United States government. To this
I reply, that all of his acts performed
while he is do facto a magistrate will
be recognized as legal by the courts.
I beg to refer you to the case of the
State vs. Coleman, 5-th, S. C., for
full answer to this quc ition.
A VOTINO QUESTION.
In reply to a citizen of Prosperity
the attorney general writes thus:
Dear Sir: In yours of the 21st,
you ask "whether a man who has
recently become of age, and has so
cured a registration certificate during
this year, but who has not a poll tax
receipt on account of his reaching
the voting ago after the time for the
payment of poll tax had elapsed;
is entitled to vote at a special elec
tion called in your town, for the pur
pose of establishing dispensary."
In reply I call your attention to
the fact that the law requires, Sec. 1,
registration, 1396, that "the elector
shall have paid si. months before
any election all poll taxes then due
and payable.'' It seems to me as
clear that if no poll tax had boon or
.ould be assessed against him; then
a was not owing any, and that one
1uld not be demanded of him as a
o1~requisito of voting, wvheni it ap
*ears that lie has been properly reg
Sistered. The constitution requires
ayment of all pll taxes prop.
iod against a party, and
Spayment to be shown
p.1t; but of course if
at the time liable for
mnnot affect his right
au complied with all
iremsnts of law.
JRtLIo) SCHOOL LAw.
equest of the Comptroller
Pogd , Mr. Bellingor furnishes this
Dear Sir: Your letter of the 11th
inst., has had due consideration. In
it you ask for an opinion "as to
proper consideration to be placed on
'an act entitled an act to aflix the
times of the free public schools, etc.,
etc.' page 112, acts 1899." You es
pecially refer to soc. 2, and the pro
vision therein contained, relative to
your duties, which roads :--"shall
rpake his estimate upon the basis of
the allowance to each school in every
school district, out of the three mill
constitutional tax and poll tax, the
sum of $715.00, for the expense of
such term of three months for each
school existing during the scholastic
year of 1897-98." You ask: "Does
the allowance mentioned here mean
the sum apportioned by the county
board of education to the various
school districts for the apportion
. merit made by the school trustees to
the various schools in their districts ?"
Replying, I beg to give as my
opinion: That you, in determining
whether any deficiency exists, are to
treat each school district as a unit;
to ascertain the number of schools in
each district, and if the amount ox
is equal to or exceeds the amount of
$75 per school within said district;
then no deficiency exists; but should
the amount allowed to each district
be less than $75 multiplied by the
number of schools, then a deficiency
does exist. For instance, if there
ar) ten schools within a school dis
trict, and $750 has been expended by
that district for the scholastic year
indicated, then no deficiency is to be
made up-but, should say $600 be
expended for the maintenance of the
said tou schools, then there would be
a deficiency of $150.
In my opinion, it is not a part of
your duties, under the act mentioned,
to ascertain what each school has re
coived, nor how the boards of t rus
tees of the respective districts have
apportioned the funds entrusted to
them, as far as the same relate to the

What will the great metropolitan
papers do next? This is the ques
tion some one asks every day. But
there is one which leads nil others.
It has gained the sobriquet of "Amer
ica's Greatest Newspapor" by just
such remarkable pieces of enterprise
as the one which has just now at
tracted the attention of the press all
over the country.
Last week the New York Sunday
World announced that it would give
away an album of now and original
music, consisting of ten of the up to
dato class of songs that arc now so
popular, such as songs of sentiment,
"coon" songs, "cakewalks," &c.
Those ten songs the Sunday World
proposes to distributo one each week,
with every copy of the Sunday World.
When it is considered that the aver
age price of now music, written and
composed by popular authors, is
from 30 to 45-certs, the unparalleled
enterprise of The World in giving
the song away with a big Sunday
newspaper, for which only 5 cents is
charged, is apparent. The World
requests that we publish the follow
A Music Album free. From Sept.
3 to Nov. 5, the Sunday World will
issue weekly a song in sheet music
form, with handsome colored cover.
The entire set will be mailed, postage
paid, for S0n. Remittances received
after Sep. 3 will get the back num
bers and each new number issued.
Besides the song, The World will
also send its colored Art Portfolio,
which is a marvel of journalism; its
Sunday Magazine, which equals the
monthly periodicals, and its Comic
Wec .ly, which excels every comi"
wee'y in the United States except
two, and in its comic scope equals
these two 10 cent publications.
Write a postal card to the Sunday
World Music Editor, Pulitzer Build
ing, N. Y., for a list of the songs.

(Tfhe State, 1st.)
Yestei d!ay afternoon Senator B. RI.
Tillman, accompanied by Mrs. Till
man, arrived in the city en route to
Rhode Island. The senator expects
to proceed on his journey this morn
ing and will be absent from the State
about ten days. He goes to. make a
speech before the Bryan Bimetallic
longua of Rhode Island. lie says
this is in accord with some plans ar
ranged at the July meeting of the
National Democratic executive conm
mittoo. The Democratic party wishes
to have the Rhode Island delegation
in the National Convention solid for
free silver and is sending speakers
there. Another idea is to make the
movement for Democracy so strong
in New England that New England
money will have to be kept at home.
Senator Tillman spent the night
at the residence of Mr, and Mrs.
Bunch. He was charmed with the
evidences of prosperity in and around
Columbia. He said that the new
pavements were most noteworthy and
appreciated by visitors. He stated
that he had been about a great deal
lately but nowhere had he seen such
striking evidences of solid develop
ment as here in th)e State capital.

(The State, 6th.)
Attorney General Bellinger is not
resting in the Neal ponitontiary
shortago matter. The matter does
not stop oven temporarily N 'th the
arrest of Col. Neal on the three
charges preferred by the Attorney
General. Yesterday Mr. Bollinger
was busy dictating letters to each of
Col. Neal's bondsmn notifying then
that they would be expected to ap
pear in Columbia at once and make
good the amount Col. Neal has boon
found by the investigating com
mittee to be short in his accounts
with the State.
In case these bondsmen do not
heed the notice sent them the Attor
ney General will doubtless take
prompt legal steps to enforce the
payment of the amount.
Attorney General Bellinger went
further in the matter yesterday and
notified the bookkeeper of the peni
tentiary to furnish him forthwith
with itemized statements of the ac
counts of several persons found by
the committee to be indebted to the
institution for various at ticles. This
notice covers Senator Tillman's
brick, ex-Gov. Evans' account,, etc.
As soon as the accounts have been
received the Attorney General will
take the proper steps to collect the
THEX BA1RNWELL SHO1rTAWE.
Yesterday Senator S. G. Mayfield,
who was one of the late County
Treasurer Free's bondsmen, was in
the city. He called upon the Gov
ernor and upon the Comptroller
General and talked over the matter
with those officials. le came here
to look over Treasurer Free's last
settlement shoots in the Comptrol
ler's office. Mr. Mayfield has en
tered suit against the estate and has
an expert now at work endeavoring
ascertain the exact amount of the
shortage for which the bondsmen are
liable. Ho says there is no question
about some $3,000 of the reported
shortage. A certificate in the office
of the Comptroller shows that the
dead treasurer had all the missing
money in the bank at Barnwoll
when he made his last settlement
about a year ago. There is nothing
to indicate what became of it. Th'lo
shortage is almost entirely euinued
to the county school fund which is
never paid into the State treasury,
but remains in the hands of the
county treasurer. In this case it was
a kind of accumulating fund and
there was no method by which the
shortage could have been diseoverod
b)y any one.
Gov. MeSwooney yesterday asked
the Comptroller General to go to
Barnwell and make a thorough ex
amination of the hooks and ac
counts of the office and make a full
repat covering the exact condition
of affairs. Comptroller Derman will
leave tomorrow morning to enter
upon this examination.

Yesterday Col. Wilie Jones, one of
Col. Neal's bondsmen, called at the
office of the Attorney General in re
sponse to the notice to the bonds
men to appear and make good Col.
Neal's shortage. A co.nference was
arranged for a subsequent day. it
is said that the bondsmen have de
termined to pay up and will not put
the State to the necessity of a resort
to the courts.

him lncu Itlro Nintl in
(News and Courier.)
The Iiov. E. E. Jaokson, pastor of
the Mount Olivo iiptist Church,
Pltlinfield, N. J., is in the city from
a tour through the far West, w!-oro
l'o has been making some stiri ng
speeches on "1'ho )efects in Poli
tics," "The Negro as a soldier" and
"The Best. Course to bo Pursued by
the Leaders of the Two Itaoes to
Solve the Negro Problem."
The Rev. Jackson, speaking to a
reporter of the News and Courier,
said: "I am not from t he North hero
in the South to b'gin the solution of
the problem, nor to tach the negro
any doctrine of retaliation. If tho
lynching in the South with other in
human outrages is to be stopped it
is to ho stopped by the peoplo of the
South-the botter class of negro
preachers and teachers, teaching tho
negro higher morals, and by the
Southern whites teaching their race
law and order. I know the dignity
of America has been affoctod by those
outrages; I know it is a stain on her
civilization, but when ia negro loader
loaves the North and comes South to
protest against thoso outrages lot
them first tind the status of the ma
jority of that class upon which they
are committed. I say lynching is
wrong. There never was a greater
demonstration of the covardico than
that of forty or fifty men marching
at the midnight hour to lynch one
man, white or black. I read an ar
ticle from the News and Courier no
tifying the South that two of my
comrades will soon be in the South
land to organize a sentiment against
lynching, and that they will visit
Savannah, Charleston and Nashville,
the great conv?ntion of negro Bap
tists will moet the 13th of Septem
bor. I wish to i nvite my brethren,
as they will have but thirty days to
visit places where their work will be
mnor" accepted, and more good ac
coi. >dlished by it, if they can escapo
alive, namely, Wilmington, N. C.;
Tarboro, Edgefield, Hamburg, Barn
vell, Phoenix, G reenwood, \Vaycross,
Jessup, Darien, Newnan, Griflin, and
many other places to wlhch I might
refer. Charleston has no lynchers,
neither has Savannah. What sense
then is there in giving medicine to
the well; it is the sick that nood it.
"I am opposed to lynching, but
two things must be taught our race;
one is higher morals, the other is to
disintegrate politically,.it. is the
negro who makes the solid South by
his solid political afliliat ion with thle
Republican p)arty, irrespective of the
principles of its p)olitics. Evil coi
bination bettwoon sections is kvrong.
This country3, the North as well as
the South, is to blame for mfany' of
the failures of the negro. The right
of franchise was a curse to the ne
gro and every other mian who was
incap)able of intelligently exercising
it. I know we need more justice at
the bar as a race North anid South,
andl in mnany' Courts wvhero it is
meted out to the negro it ought to be
mercy. As one wvho is familiar with
tihe moral status of the race I say
wvhile we have just as grand charac
teors as leaders and followvers as ainy
other p)eople, we should change our
language from cursing the Southern
white manti, andl domnd his sympa
thy, and tell our people1 esp)ecially to
teach that eleoment upon01 which these
outrages are so freqiuently commiittodl
"Your rebukes, your (larinig and
