HOUSE 01F R EPRESENTA TIVES.
T1he~ house met 12 A. M., Speaker
Lee in the Chair.
A message wats redelved from Gov.
Moses, vetoing the Act to repeal the
Aetatthorizing stenographers for the
Ifirst and Fifth Circuits. The
Governor gives the fdllowing
reasons for his aetive. The office
in question has been long established
in many of the Northern and Western
States of the Union, and has been
found by experience to be a powerful
aid in' the ad ministration of justice.
The bench, bar and people of those
States are greatly averse to its aboli
tion or disuse, ad the same appre
elation of its value obtains to a very
large extent in the two circuits of
this State in which the system has
been tried. It is a fittiag accompani
ment to the useful judicial sfstems
which now prevails in our State, and
is a part and parcel of the new and
reconstru.ted South Carolina, as op
posed to the slow and tedious practice
in use in our courts in the days be
fore the War. Tn the First and I"if
Circuits especially qiestions of grive
importanoc are cons'taiitly arising
which have an imntediate and. muo.
inentous hearing upon the inteI c.fs of
the people of the whole State, and
*the labo- or the Judges in these nir.
'ouits is giee'ally more ar.luoius th an
are those of the other Judges, render
ing the aid of the stenographer in
dispensable to the eilicient dischaige
of their important duties. Suitors i<
the courts save til tim-e and expeis
more than double the amount of th.
small fee that has to be paid by the
party "cast" in tile suit, and in
the paymnt,.. of j1rMrs and
witrieses in the Courts of Common
Plens and General Sessions, the Coun
ties in these circuits save a great deal
more than th'o hala'nees they ate
usually required to muke lip. After
thorough examinatioo of the premi.
sea, it is my deliberate judgment that
the true economfy which we have
promised to the people will be
best subserwd by the law as it new
