(The State, 23rd.)
The second annual session of the
present general assembly is to begin
next Tuesday week and on all sides,
though this is what is known as
Christmas week, preparations are
being made for the opening of
the forty-day session of the' salons.
It is very generally conceded that
the session will continue till the
constitutional forty-day limitation is
All the State officers and the State
institutions are hard at work putting
the finishing touches to the several
annual reports, but there will be only
a few of them that can be placed on
the desks of the members on the
opening day of the session. Attor
ney General Bellinger and te Sec
retary of State have their reports
about complete; the Adjutant Gen
.eral's was completed yesterday and
so was that of the Railroad Commis
sioners. There are several of the
'others that cannot be completed un
:til the first day of the new year has
come and the books have been
-closed for the year.
Some of the oicials have been
having a great deal of trouble this
year in getting reports from county
officials on time. For instance the
Superintendent of Education is pre
paring an elaborate report as to the
achools and school funds of the State,
and data is needed from each county
for the elaborate tabular statements.
This was impressed upon the county
superintendents, but up to yesterday
:at least two of the superintendents,
those in Spartanburg and Lancaster,
)had not sent in the needed ligures.
But no effort is being spared to
rget all the reports in the printer's
hands so as to have them in the c
hands of the legislators as early as

all those portions of his message that c
did not have to await the coming of p
the reports of other officers, ready, m
and fine headway has boon made ona
the message. It will not be a very
long one. Gov. McSweeney proposes a

Of course none can tell what legis- fi
lation is to be proposed at this ses
sion, but it goes without saying that v
the usual flood of new bills will be-p
gin at the outset and keep up for at ti
least a fortnight. So far as known e
~the only new measures of moment will
be the Appelt and Winkler dispen- o
!sary bills. It is thought likely that a
~the redis'tricting measure will be pro- e
~posed again. b
Both houses of the general assem- t
ly have a great deal of work brought 6

plenty to do on the very first day if
