Columbia, January K.-The first,
session of the General Assembly of
South Carolina in the t wentieth con
tury was oplened today. It was an
auspicious and happy opening. The

and bright, and every ono was in a

A visitor to the hall of the House
of Representatives today, if familiar
with the make-up of previous -louses,
would have been struck with the
great number of new and young
faces, and the few grey heads that
werein the gathering. True there
are some men in the House who are
old and tried in their service to their
State, such men as Tom Austin, Capt.
J. Ham Brooks, Geo. W. Croft, Peter
Hollis, Altamont Moses, Col. Robin
son, Capt. Dean, Capt. IR. A. Thomp
son, Capt. All, Capt. J. 1-arvey Wil
son, and Messrs. Lockwood and Col.
cook, of Beaufort. But cast your
eyes about and here and there are
seen the sons of men who but a gen
oration ago served their State in
these very halls, in the battlefield or
in her days of political revolution.
There are in the ranks of the
young members theioss of former
servants of the State - McIver, Bos
tic, Bothwell, Butler, J. R. C->gge
shall, Robt. Hunter, Robt. Lide, A.
M. Lever, P. B. Mayson, Fitz Mc
Master, Geo. 1-1. Moffett, Adam H.
Moss, M. W. Pyatt, Hugh Sinkler,
W. H. Wells, Yancey Williams, W.
Turner Logan, Robt. Webb and E. J.
Dennis, Jr. Then there is the great
middle stratum in political life, such
men as Capt. Theus, Mr. Tatum,
Capt. Saunders and( the host of oth
It was a gathering such its any
South Carolinian would have been
proud of, that of the first session of
the new century. It was a body of
men all of whon could hold up their
heads in a spirit of proud indepen
dence and proclaim that they owed
* neither subservierce nor ob'edience
- to any man. Tlhey come here un
trammelled and unfetteredI to do0
their duty to their people, and hqp
pily loft sectional arnd factional feel
ings out in the cold.
There wore several spirited elec
tions, but they were all good-natured
and made unanimous.
The House could not do more than
organize up to the time of adjourn
ig, nearly 3 o'clock. The elections
were stoppledl just as the chaplain

Toe the oldest member, in ler.gth of
r' continuous service -not ago-was
given the honor of organizing the
House of Repreresentativ.s. This
honor was conferred on the Hon
eAltamont Moses, of Sumter County.
*When Clerk Thomas C. Hamer
rapped for order everyone was on
hequi vive for- the mandate for
work to begin. As soonI as the
House was ready Mr. J. 0. Patterson,
of Barnwell, moved that Mr. .Alt
mont Moses be selected ais temporary
Mr. Bacot put the motion and
without further ado Mr. Moses was
elected and promptly took the o tth
*of office-it being administered by
Tbe member8 had t aken their seats
nr'aisonously throughout the Honse
and were making acquaintance with
('ach other. It. was decided to have
the delgations sworn in groups of
two coutties at a time. Acting Sor
genit at-Arms Stansell oliciated in
the swearing in of the members.
Speaker Moses read th oath of oflice
and it was repeated by the niebers
as they cam up.
All of the members except Messrs
E. B. RagHdale, of Fairfield, and H-.
H1. Woodward, of Horry, were pre
sent and sworn in. This is a re
markable showing in the the propor
tion of those present on the opening
day of the session. Mr. Ragsdale is
quite sick and is not likely to be
present during the session.
As soon as the members wore sworn
in Speaker Moses announced that a
quorum of the House was present,
and t he first business was the election
of a Speaker, and he would receive
Mr. T. Yancey Willams, of Lan
caster, nominated Mr. W. F. Steven
son, of Chesterfield.
Mr. John McMaster, of Iiehland,
placed the name of the Hon Francis
H. Weston before the House as can
didate for Speaker.
Mr. E. Marion Rucker, of Ander
son), nominated his colleague, Mr.
George E. Prince, for Speaker.
Speaker Moses announced the vote
to be: Total vote cast 116-Ste
venson 73, Weston 17, Prince 20.
Mr. Rucker moved that Mr. Ste
venson's election be made unani.
mous, which w4ae agreed to.
Mr. Stevenson, besides being an
active and most useful member, is
decidedly popular. He has many
warm admirers among the members
and Columbians, because they ap
prociato good, hard, active and ener
getic work. Mr. Stevenson's elec
tion was no surprise vhatever, in fact
the surprise would have been had lie
not been elected.
Mr. Stevenson, before taking the
chair, took the oath of office, ad
ministered by Mr. Moses.
The election for Speaker excited
decided interest and the liveliest
kind of work was in progress for a
couple of days.
HVPEAKER sTEvENSON' SPEFcH.
Mr. Stevenson, in taking the chair,
made an admirable and forcible
speecb. He spoke briefly, but to
the point, and there was moaning in
all lie said, which, in brief, was that
we were at the beginning of a new
opoch in the history of South Caro
liua and the body here assembled
would be called upon to write the
introduction to that history; that lie
was satisfied that it would be a his
tory of progress without radical fea
turies, and conservatism without old
fogyismn; that an era of prosperity
was nowv dawning that should
not be dlamaged by injudicious legis
lationr. The question of first import
anice probably will lie the regulation
of cotton mill labor. This should be
done, but done in so conservative a
wvay as to leave the present amicable
relations between our mills and the
operators undisturbed and foster this
great industry which has added so
much to our material prosperity.
Onr free schools must be improved;
our railroads kept properly regulated,
and all of our interdependent indus
t riosu guarded wvith jealous care.
ELECTION ,OF CLERK.
Speaker Stevenson promptly called
for nominations for the position of
clerk to the House. The incumbent,
Mr. Thomas 0. Hamer, of Marlboro,
and a former clerk, 061. J. Walter
Gray, of Greenville, were placed in
nomination. The vote stood: Harrer,
78; Gray, 41. Mr. Hamer was de.
clared elected and on motion of Mr.

Mr. Scarborough took occasion to
make somo appropriate remarks ex
pressing pleasure at the assembling
of the Senate under such auspicious
ciroumstances, and welcoming the
now Senat.>rs on the part of the old
ones. He expressed the belief that
this Senate would fully maintain the
prostige of its predecessors, and re
ferred in feeling terms to the death
of Senator Mauldin, of Hampton.
The Senate being fully organized
the House was so informed, and a
committee, consisting of Sonators
Henderson, Livingston and Blakoney,
was appointed to notify the Gover
nor that the Senate was ready for his
After the reading of the muesage
Senator Barnwell offered a resolution
that it be referred to the committee
on rules to consider the propriety of
a-1.ending Joint Rude 7 so as to do
away with the requirement that both
houses should be present at the
rat ification of Acts. He said that
prior to 1805 the Governor in South
Carolina had no power to veto, and
when an Act was ratified it became
law, and there was no power of cor
recting errors or omissions. Con
sequently it was made a very solemn
ceremonial. Acts were ratified on
the last day of, the session; both
houses were present, and Mr Speaker
and Mr. President of the Senate, for
the Lieutenant Governor did not pre
side over the Senate, stood together
at the President's des5k. Mr. Presi
dent bowed to Mr. Speaikor. and said:
"Mr. Speaker, I haive the .honor to
present to you an Act entitled an
Act, ete, and Mr. Speaker presented
the Acts of the House to President
with the same formula. Then the
clerks of thbe two bouses stood below
and solemuly read out from eh
Act. "at General Assembly begun,"
In 1805, when the Hion. W. D.
Porter was Lieutenant Governor, aDd
the Hion. C. LH Simonton Speaker,
they devised a simple set of rules by
which bills wvere ratified by the pre
siding officers without ceremony. TIn
1808 this was modified by allowing
the Speaker to attend in the Senate
without tbe H-ouse, and in 1877 the
ratifieation by both ho'ises was re
stored. He thought the experience
of all Senators was to the effect that
this was ai useleus waste of time-. A
few members only of the' House at
tended, and yet both bouses were
obliged to aldjourn-11 at ito very bulsi
