reported by the agricultural committee,
who considered -that it would hamper
these departmlents in expenditures
which were pMoper but could not be
anticipated by the General Assembly
in its appropriation bills. Other Sena

of legislators. It was speedily dis

request of the Senator from Barnwell.

b~y this body at the instan~ce of the
formner Senator 1(Dr. Lartigne), but
that gentleman- lamd appeared before
the judiciary committee to state that
the law had failed amAl to ask for its
Senator Yonmans in supporting the
bill based his argument on the ineffi
cacy of the law.- There were good~
people on each side. He himself had
been little interested in the matter, and
was no partisan, but he had been com
pelled to take this position. The
county was distracted, the law was
flagrantly violated and the administra
tion of justice waelogged. What had
more effect on his. nd than anything
else was an insp8ci n of the books of
the United States 'hinternal revenue
department. It appears from these
records that in 1883, before Prohibition
had been decreed, the 'United States
issued licenses to twenty-three whiskey
dealers in Barnwell con ty. In 1884.
after the countf had been inade "dry"
by Act of the Legislature,,twenty-eight
United States licenses werzaissued, and
in the seven months since las May the

When the concurrent resolutiob rel
ative to Federal aid to education was

mans moved to strike out the resoiv
ing words. After brief debate be
tween himself and Senator Buist, the

were 14 veas and 19 navs. A motion

The Senote amendments to the bill
to utilize the labor of convicts were
agreed to. As the bill passed the House
prisoners sentenced to one year or
less imprisonment were made liable to
work on public works. The Senate
fixed the term at sixty days.
The ways and means committee of
the House submitted a report on that
portion of the Governor's message re
ferring to the lo4 tax year. The com
mittee suggest that the State treasurer
be authorized to borrow $150,000 snd
the county treasurors one-third the
amount lieved for county pur-poses.
They say that in their opinion there
are but two ways in which the. deti
ciency caused by the failure to levy a
tax in 1976 can be supplied. One is
to rais3 the money the money by extra
taxation, and the other to amend the
Constitution so as to permit the issuing
of bonds to cover the amount. 3 hey
cannot recommend this latter proceed
ing. They think that an extr-a tax of
oife half a mill for two years will sup
ply the deficiency. The report was
laid noon the table to he consider-ed
later in the session.
