["HOS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR THURSDAY, DEC. 7, 1893. In his message Gov. Tillman recommends that Judge Kershaw be appointed to complete the Confederate rolls in this -State. The income tax will probably raise fifty million of revenue for the government. The beauty of it is, the most of it comes out of the favored class. Over sixty-five thousand pounds of home grown tobacco were sold at Darlington last week, bringing from fifteen to sixty-seven dollars per hundred During the season a ? million pouds of the weed will be marketed there. Senator Butler is still in the race and is not to be side-tracked. He "proposes to make an open and un mistakable fight for re-election to the United States Senate. The report of his running for governor is not true. He saj's he will let the people of Carolina know what he he to say in ample time. Governor Tillman nominates Gen. Joesph B. Keishuw to com plete the Confederate records and write abrief history of the differ ent brigades, regiments, and bat teries, to show the date of enlist ment, battles in which they were engaged, and the part they took in the war generally. The Governer says: "This need not beIf-ngtbj, but it will be very valuable and dear to our children." Governor Tillman could not have made a better selection than the brave knightly Kershaw. Comptroller General Ellerbe makes an important recommenda tion in his aunual report as to artificial limbs for disabled Con federate soldiers. He says that there are many of these soldiers whose condition demands the at tention of the Legislature. Some specific amount should be ap propriated for them. He estimates that are about 100 of them, and recommends that they be paid an annual appropriation of at least $100 each. A great many of them have no means of support and a county poor house stares them in the face. DISPENSARY FIGURES. For the first four months of its existence the dispensary, according a profit of $32,108.16. This is not enough to corrupt the taxpayer into a desire to increase drinking and drunkenness that he may es cape taxation, and yet it is profit enough to assure him that his bur den will be no heavier by rt ason of the law. The dispensary law is just about good enough. These figures have put the antis in this strange dilemma : They maintain ed that the law was unconstitu tional, because, as it would raise a revenue, it must have been devised and intended to raise a revenue, and was enacted for no other pur pose. Judge Hudson simply took up this cry and re-echoed it in a de cision most fearfully and wonder fully made. Now, however, these same voices are crying out that the dispensary don't pay enough and will increase taxes. LEGISLATIVE. The Legislature met on Nov. 28. The first bill of any consequence introduced was one making a radi cal reduction in the salaries of all State offices. It went through the House like a streak of greased lightning, by a vote of 56 to 50. Of the Edgefield members W. R. Parks voted for the reduction and the others voted against it. On Thursday the Legislature ad journed-Thanksgiving Day. On Friday the House and Senate met in joint assembly, and pro ceeded to the election of judges. Dr. Timmerman and Mr.Yeldell presided over the joint sessions. Engene B. Gary, of Abbeville, was elected Associate Justice in place of S. McGowan ; W. C. Benet, of the] same place, was elected judge of the first circuit instead of Judge Izlar; Judge Aldrich was re-elected judge of the second cir cuit without opposition ; R. C. Watts, of Laurens, was elected judge of the fourth circuit in place of Judge Hudson; Judge I. H. Witherspoon was re-elected in the fifth circuit; Attorney-General Townsend was elected judge of the seventh circuit in place of Wm. H. Wallace. Associate Justice McGowan has until the 29th of July, 1894, to serve. Judge Wallace's term ex pires on the 15th of this month. Judge Aldrich, Feb. 16th, 1894. Judge Hudson, Feb. 14th, 1894. Judge Witherspoon, Feb. 15th, and Judge Izlar, Feb. 16th. Two county government bills have been introduced. ? The^House bill left over from last sessiou, authorizing the tc council of Edgefield to establ water-works was indefinitely p< poned. Of the now bills introduced, notice one to amend the charte: the Farmers' Loan and Savi; Bank of Edgefield, and allow i increase its capital stock to $1( 000 and to execute trusts. The following is a biograph i sketch of the new Associate J tice, by one who has known h intimately : ' Eugene Blackburn Gary, I newly elected Associate Justi was born in the village of Cok 1 bury, Abbeville county, on the ? of August, 1854. He is the eld son of the late Dr. F. F. Gary, received his early educatioi training at the Cokesbury Cont euee School and graduated at t South Carolina University. Af graduation he read law in the off of his distinguished uncle, Gi M. W. Gary. He has practiced ] profession at Abbeville with ma: ed success. He was one of the fi to advocate the principles of t j Reform Movement, and twice ci J.vassed the State with Tillman, a (was twice elected to the position j Lieutenant Governor. As preside of the Senate Mr. Gary has p sided with dignity, and his rulii have been characterized by coi tesy and impartiality. THE MESSAGE. Charleston Sun. Governor Tillman's messaj just given to the Legislature, the most remarkable document its kind, in many respects, th has ever issued in this or, perhaj any oihor State. The circu? stances surrounding its products created largely by the genius the mau who now reviews the; I vested the paper with unusual i terest in its anticipation, which more than justified by theresa Dispensing, in the main, with t dry statistical reports whi< usually composes so largo a portie of such papers, the Governor sicz on the salient features of his a minisration with the grasp of born master and the avidity of i unjaded enthusiast and treats them in the concrete-a departu from custom which may stait the stickler for forms and pr ceden ts, but which does not les serve to euchain the interest an attention of the reader. i The thoughts of the author ai couched in the most vigorous an chaste English, excepting place where a broad suggestion now an then is given utterance only t add the utmost available force t the expression. In places it risc in dignity with the nature of th theme and the language become classical in its now?r. nrecisio1} andToeaufy. In one instance tn Governor by natural associatio is led away from domestic topic -in treating of the abuse of rail road management by courts an receiverships-to a matter c national concern and he improve the disgression into the nationa domain by suggestions of valu and moment. Though covering an unusuallj large amount of space the Messag is not more lengthy than the in terest of it and the variety of sub jects of which it treats warrants It will not ouly be more widelj read in South Carolina than sucl documents usually are but it wil be more widely published, dis cussed, and commented upor abroad than perhaps the message of any other Governor in the Union. The piece de resistance of Gov. ernor Tillman's Message is nh attack on railroad receivership! and the abuse of the Federa' jurisdiction by the interference of its courts to prevent the collec tion of taxes as assessed by lbj State on these corporations when they happen to be insolyent and in the hands of the court. The Governor here had a fail field for the employment of hit powerful invective against a glar ing public wrong and his treat ment of it is vastly more vigorous, because of the honesty, sincerity and justice of his indignation, than is his treatment of the dis pensary (juestion' where ho be comes forced, commonplace and uncertain owing, evidently, to the weakness and doubtful justice of his cause in the latter instance. After reciting the history of tho railroad cases, which is familiar to our readers, he enters upon an elaborate discussion of the paramount right of a sovereign State to levy and collect its taxes upon all the subjects within its domain, against the assumption of a Federal court to interposa obstacles thereto, as practiced by the United States Circuit Court in the case of the South Carolina Railway. ..The right of a State to levy and collect its taxes in its own way," he says' is so old. so time-honored : the right of a receiver and the power of the court to protect him [ is so young, so new that the twj j have never before n.ome into con. ! flict. For the first time in tho his tory of American jurisprudence twe great principles of law, both based on justice and equity, ytetfl j j face to face. The one with the i 'unchallenged sanction of centuries behind it ; thu other a fungo growth of modern judicial pi c?dent based on the suppose necessity of a new order of thin but more surely resting on t. love of power, and in this instau having no other foundation. 0: had to give way ; which should have been?" "The right of the State to lei and collect taxes has uever bee disputed. South Carolina derive that right from the Kings of E; gland. It is aright which rests the root of government, and wit] out it government, would cease exist. It has never been resistf when exercised by a soveri^ except by revolution and an a peal to arms. In all free gover ments, the right is exercised a< cording to law, and ample pr< vision are made for unjust or ii equality in the levying of taxes We cannot undertake to revie the lengthy and meritorious argi ment by which he shows that tl authority which receivers and tl Federal courts now arrogate I themselves over proparty iu the hands is only a recent intereste and technical aosumption ot tl court as against the fundament: right of the State to levy taxes "I prevent a paralysis of governmenl We can only make extracts he] and there of the authorities h quotes and of the points whic he enforces. One striking instance is h presentation of the evidence < Alexander Hamilton, the fath< of the doctrine of centralizatio himself, as to the intention of th founders and makers of the Coi stitution with regard to the ind< pendent and sovereign autonomic ot the several States. This ui exceptionable authoiity as againt the upholders of national intej ference is quoted as saying: "I am willing here to allow i its full extent tbe justice of lh reasoning, which requires that th individual States should posses an independent and unconlrolabl authority to raise their own re venues for the supply of their ow wants, and in making this coi cession I affirm that (with the sol exception of duties on export and imports) they would under th plan of the convention, ret ai that authority in the most absolut and unquali?ed sense; and thu an attempt on the part of th National Government to abridg them in the execise of it would b a violent assumption of powei unwarranted by any article o clause of its Constitution." To vhich the Governo judiciously add : "I may remark in passing tba when this was written the Con stitution had been ratified by onl^ four States, and Hamilton wa trying to allay the distrust of th States. Had such claim beei made then the Constitution wouli never h<i.vo bfiprj rn ti fi od " The Goveuor is moderately con taiued until he comes to mentioi the persons who have been in strumental in thwarting the Stati as he believes, of its just dues Then his indignation knows m bounds and his language ic characterizing them is unmeasurec and doubtless too strong. "One," he says, "a Judge wh< sucked State's rights with hif mother's milk and now plants hil dagger in that mother's breast, the other an ex-carpet bagger, who ii days past did his utmost t( throttle Anglo-Saxon civilizatioi in South Carolina, and who ha? returned after fifteen years absence to gloat over her humiliation al the hands of his obedient instru ment. This is very strong language but let us see if I have not warran for it.' ' Ile quotes Receiver Chamberlain'i letter to him asking for an amicable conference and arrange ment in which that Receiver, the alleged servant of the court, poses as its master,and offers of "guarai tee the most cordial assent to the court" to an arbitration into which he Chamberlain, will undertake to bring every railroad now ir litigation with the State." "It will be seen," says the Gov ernor "that this humble servant o? the Court, while speaking with al] due humility and respect under takes to guarantee the reasonable efforts to bring about an end to this fight; but covetous of the , blessing which is promised to p.-jacernakere, wants to include ali other railroads in the amicable adjustment for whicn he is so solicitous. He went on to say: The victory to-day is with the rail roads, but I am none the less anxious to stop the quarrel. My anxiety is in the interest of the railroads. I am not afaid to cry peace before the war begins or goes further. I shall fight all the better for it, if we cannot have peace.' "Is this the language of a servant or of a master? I am not afraid. 'I ahall fight-I. Who isl? The humble receiver and servant of Judge Simonton? Bah I The pretence makes me sick : and that a South Carolinian who has been honored with the Federal judicial ermine, should appear in so de grading an attitude !" The remedy he recommends to the Legislature is to "repeal the charters of every railroad in the hands of a reo-iver and destroy theso creatures which have grown so insolent that they trample our laws under foot under the pro tection of this Federal Judge, and laugh to scorn the restriction which all citizens and other cor porations must obey."
