IN THE HoUSR
The house was the only body in
session today in so far as legislation
is concerned. There was a whole lot
of discussion on bills presented, but
as a rule they were passed over or
otherwise disposed of.
The Schloy cominomndatory resolu
tion came up one day last week, it
being introduced by Representative
Johnson, of Fairfield. When it came
up for consideration today there was
much discussion on the resolution.
A nnmnber of members thought the
resolutions were unduly hard on
criticism of the naval board, and
while the house was as a rule "Schley
men," they did not want to commit
the state of South Carolina to a par
tisan expression of opinion. The
resolution after much discussion was
referred to the committee on federal
relations, but the Schley-Sampson
controversy was largely debated bo
fore this was done.
TF.XT BOOKS VOlt TlE P1ot.
Mr. Lomax's bill to provide free
text books for poor children was then
taken up, and Mr. Rucker defended
the measure. He t.hought the bill a
well conceived measure. It was pro.
vided that not over five per ceont.
should be invested in any one year
for school books, and the hooks are
to remain the property of the school
Mr. Ashley thought the bill was
right and it ought to pass.
Mr. Lomax said he was familiar
with the school situation of today
and be held that the bill was on the
right line. His whole purpose was
to help the public schools. Last
year ho proposed to the trustees of
his school that they would buy books
and loan them to the children and
the result wus that every school child
in the district attended the schools.
Mr. Webb said he was the friend
of the poor children. His syldipa
thies went out to the poor children.
The bill forces the children to take
an oath that they were unable to buy
Mr. Ashley and Mr. Lomax in.
siotel that no oath was required.
The best thing was to improve the
schools and get them on a cash basis.
Books are now very cheap.
Mr. F. H. Melhaster favored the
bill with a strong speech. The bill
was then ordered to its third reading
Section 1. That whenever it shall
be made to appear to the sat isfaction
of the trustees of any school district
that any patron of such school is un
able by reason of poverty to pnIrchase
the necessary books for the use of
his or her child or children, theni in
such case the trustees of such schools
district may in their discretion pur
chase such necessary b)ooks for such
pupils: Provided, the sum so cx
pendo:l for thepircha-rn of md b)ooks
shall not exceed the sum of 5 per
cent, of the school fund of said dis1
trict in any one year: And provided
further, That the books so pur
chased shall be the property of such
public school district.
Several other matters were dis
cussed but nothing of importance
was disposed of.

In a 1speech in the Senate yoster.
(lay, Mr. Tillman, of South Carolina,
made an observation which will give
grievous offeice to New England,
and doubtless provoke a crushing re
joinder from the Senators from that
section. Mr. Tillman, according to
a Washington dispatch, ''spoke of
the achievements of the South Caro
lina troops in the levolut.ionary war,
and s'il that the battles fought mo
his State were more important than
those fought in Massaclusetts." "We
don't want. Massiachusetts to bag all
of tho glory," ho added, "for as our
illustrious lear Admiral Schley has
said of a later triumph of our arms,
there is glory enough for all."
It is regretable that Mr. Tillman
has beoi lod into this indiscreet ut
torance. Upon the best Mtassaclhu
setts 1'uthority it can be assorted
that the levolutionary war was
wag9d solely and exclusively by the
descendants of the Pilgrim Fathers,
despit.e all - tatomionts to the cont.rary.
George Washington, the groat sol
dier of the Revolution, wIs not, ats
some ill-informed porsons assort, a
Virginian of the c.,valier type, but a
pure-hloodecl son of a ''.1'raise-(od
Barebones" sire. I'homat1l J('ffersoI
was of undiluted Puritan ancestry,
and the )eclaration of I ndependonce
was a rehash of the eXpressions of
Boston tea-party patriots. Massa
chusetts troops alone and unassisted
fought Bnrgoyne to a standstill and
conpolled him to surrender. The
capture of Cornwallis at Yorktown,
Va., was a triumph of New England
valor and goneralship, the French
allies of the liovolutionists being
merely spectators, who were pormit
ted to be present to see how Massa
clusetts could humble "Perfidious
The battles in the South wore all
fought by New England warriors,
the natives coming upon the field
after the victories were won to con
gratulate the legions from Boston
upon their invincible courage. Some
historians who have not availed them
selves of the only reliable sources of
information have rashly assorted
that John Paul Jones, the dashing
sea-fighter, was born in Scotland.
Of course, this cannot be the fact.
Jones's'ancestors came over on thc
Mayflower, and the naval hero wvas
born under the shadow of the Sacred
Codfish. In the second war wvitti
