-News and Courier.
Columbia, Feb. IT.?A vitriolic de-'
bate between Senator Evans of Marl- j
boro, and Senator Laney of Chester-!
held enlivened the senate' tonight dur-t
ing the consideration of the appropria- i
tion bill. ;lhe passage at arms be-,
tween these two bordered closely on
the personal and diverted attention
from the attack which Senator Evans!
nad been making on State Warehouse:
Commissioner John L. McLaurin.
Senator Evans, who comes from!
Marlboro county, also the home of:
Commissioner McLaurin, had offered;
an amendment to the appropriation;
for the warehouse system increasing!
the item to $20,000 and striking from:
ihe bill the authority given the commissioner
to use the fees of his office;
if necessary. The Marlboro Senator)
told of his friendship for the system, j
but said he had no use politically for j
the warehouse commissioner. Hej
charged that the authority granted:
the commissioner to use the fees re- j
ceived from storing cotton was dan-i
gerous and he wanted this stricken |
from the bill. He alleged that Mr. Mc-;
Laurin had not conformed to the law j
in that he had not deposited the fees!
last year in the State treasury, but,
had pa', them in a private bank to his;
credit as commissioner. He also re- j
ferrt-d to the fact thai Commissioner
McLaurin refused to give the names
of the insurance companies which
carry ihe insurance on cotton stored
in the State warehouses.
No Damage Done.
Senator Laney and Senator Bvans I
were talking about this matter when
the Chesterfield sena'Or, in arejoinde*%
charged the Marlboro senator with
being steeped in prejudice against the
-wr "."house commissioner. Th Marlboro
senator retorted that the Chesteriield
senator was steeped in prejudice
for the warehouse commissioner,
and it was then that they almost
became personal. The threatened trouble
blew over, however, and the debate
was resumed.
Senator Banks, of Calhoufc, came to
the defence of Commissioner McLaurin,
and vigorously denied that he had
not ccmpiied with the law. He explained
that the fund which Mr. McLaurin
had deposited in a private bank was
money sent on by the people to pay
insurance on {heir cotton and for
which Mr. McLaurin mailed his personal
check to the insurance companies.
In the course of his speech Senator

go back to Marlboro and tell his peo-'
pie w'nat hehad said about Mr. McLaurin.
He also said that he would 1
tell the people of the State the same
thing during his canvass for a State
office this summer.
The appropriation for the ware- 1
fcouse commissioner was passed as !
recommended by the finance commiti
tee, and Senator Evans's efforts toj
change the item failed. During the j
afternoon his amendment was laid on I
the table by a vote of 31 to 2, only i
Senator Hughes voting with him.
Asylcm Item Discussed,
The only other fight during the en- ]
tire time the Senate considered the
appropriation bill at morning and-afternoon
sessions, was on the salary
for the superintendent of the State
Hospital for the Insane. The finance
committee had recomended that the j,
salary be fixed at $6 000. Senator
Sharpe offered an amendment reduc- c
ing the salary to $3,000, but this was
^ tabled by a vote of 33 to 7, the seven ,
votes being cast by Senators Good- (
win Harvey, Jolinson. A. B. Patterson.
Sharpe. Wiglitman and Williams, Jno. l
" " *L - - . v.: ?
inuring ine utuaie un tins mciuci,
which occupied the entire afternoon, (
several senators paid tribute to Dr. C.
Fred Williams, the superintendent of
the State Hospital for the Insane.
Senator Hughes of Union, said the :
State was fortunate in securing Dr. '
^Williams ana this same position was :
taken by Senator Evans and others.
Chairman Christensen of the finance 1
President Currell of the Universityof :
committee, who led the fignt for the
.$6,000 salary referred to the fact that
'President Currell of the University of
Carolina, sets a salary of $5,
(000 and a house and that President '
;Tohnson of Winthrop, receives a salary
of $5,000 a year and a house and yet
they handle only about one-fourth as
-much money as the superintendent of
the asylum handles.
Senator Laney paid a tribute to Dr.
J. W. Babcock, the former superintendent
of the asylum, and said that
Dr. Babcock was not responsible for
the conditions which existed at the
asylum up to one year ago, and he
placed the blame on the niggardliness
of the past general assemblies. He
said that Dr. iiabcock had asked for
?1\ money \ear after year,
IIoit the Senators Voted.

fixed the salary of the superintendent
of the asylum at $6,000. Those voting

"The new 'Barefoot' rubber, used in
Goodrich Black Tread Tires and other
Goodrich products," says Mr. E. C.
Tribbitts, advertising director of the
B. b. ouodrich company, "was first
called 'Hyper-Rubber,' which it is of
course. But. one of its most valuable
characteristics, for tire (and shoe)
purposes, is its cling quanity?its ten.

would cling to a slippery floor. That's

Ink Stands, Paper Weights and Books!
lTsed to Good Effect
During Row.
Oklahoma City, Okla., Feb. 18. ?\
TnninlMiniis scenes occurred in the!
Oklahoma house of representatives to-'
day, while t'ne members wer ivoting on j
an election law designed to take the j
place of the famous "grandfather law'* j
recently declared unconstitutional by j
the United States supreme court be- j
cauie in effect it disfranchised the
negro population of the State.
Partisan feeling finally culminated
in a near riot, precipitated by charges
cf corruption and the passing of the i
lie between members, during which
i'-k bottles and pane, weights were
uS'M as wvupons. A ^e.rious affray !
seemed inevitable as Democrats

The proposed law is the product cf
a Democratic caucus. It has passed >
the senate and was up for final pas
sage in the house late today, with Re- j
publicans and Socialistic members of
fering vigorous opposition, u-eissier
was on the floor through the courtesy
of a visitor's permit.
Representative Paul Nesbit, of
Pittsburgh county, had voted in fai
vor of the proposed law and as he;
announced his vote Representative ,
Sams. Republican, taunted Xesbitt!
with being "unfair" to Republicans. :
Xesbitt replied that he was raised in ;
a section where the Republicans had '
overridden him with corrupt practices. 1
and that he had no desire *.o be fai:
to Republicans.
iWarm "Words.
"iT'ney probably took you for the j
crook that you are," shouted Sams.
"If you make that charge you are i
a liar," replied Nesbitt.
, Sams aroi-e in his seat and shouted
toward the Democratic side of the,'
house, "come on-"
In an instant every member of the
house was on his feet. Ink bottles and
paper weights were thrown back and 1
forth. The Democratic members ad- j
vanced through the aisles toward the j
Republican members. Speaker A. C. I
McCrorey left his chair and rushed
3ut of the legislative halls. The Dem- j
ocrats greatly outnumbered the Re-J
publican combatants and after a few j
volleys of ink wells, paper weights i
md books, the melee ended.
Representative Tom Hensley, Democrat,
went to the "side line'' and was
engaged in conversation witii Teissier.
When Hensley walked away Bryant
stepped up to Geissler and demanded:
"What right have you to be talking
o a representative on the floor of the
louse?" }
Geissler replied: "Beg pardon, what
s your name?" Whereupon Bryant hit
Teissier in the face, according to wiilesses,
knocking him to the floor and
endering him unconscious for several,
Bryant became lost in the crowd
hat rushed around Geissler. No fur-,
her disturbances occurred.
President Wilson recently pardoned
wo Oklahoma election officials cc
,'icted for enforcing the "grandfather
:est." Two others now are on trial in
'ederal court at Guthrie.

Wrong Car Again.
There is the old story of the man
vho boarded three cars, only to discover
that none of them was the carl
le wanted. Boarding a fourth in a'
ligh state of irritation, he waxed a
:riflle profane in his conversation j
ivi-th the conductor. A severely pious j
ooking old man sitting near the door
)verheard and remarked a little sharp y:
"My friend, did you know that you t

"Well, if I'm not on the wrong car,
