IOLITICIANS vs. THE PEOPLE.
After several visits to Columbia
recently we have come to ehe con
clusion that four dollars a day is
rather a steep price to pay to have
candidates groomed for the coming
primary election. The General As
sembly did a lot of work, sorae of
which was good, but very little of
it will help the masses, but the
principal work we saw going on was
among the members, each with a lit
tle hatchet to grind. Columbia was
the seat of more scheming and wire
pulling this session than ever before,
even in the palmy days of "ring rule,"
and what does it all mean, if not to
get the professional politicians band
ed together to prevent the people
from exercising their choice.
There are a number of men in pol
itics who know that the only way for
them to keep in, is to create as much
friction as possible, bring about a
state of excitement and then with
hip, hip, hurrah methods, ride into
office. This class have no care for
the people, it is office for them and
nothing more; but if we mistake not
the people, they are tired of such
men and their deceptive methods,
and in the future they propose to do
their own thinking and their own
leading. The politicians may gather
together in hotel rooms, restaurants
orcommittee rooms and scheme to
their heart's content; they will not be
able to cram any nonsense into the
heads of the people. The great ob
ject for destruction, appears to be the
Governor. In an unfortunate mo
mernt he exercised the brain which
the Almighty has blessed him with,
and saw fit to stand square by the sol
emn promise he made to the people
when he took the oath of offce-"to
be Governor of South Carolina."
The politicans feeling that they are
the people,ithe governor has sinned
against them and therefore must be
crushed out of existance to make room
for a ball of putty whom they can
shape to their own fashion. How
ever, it is our opinion that stenething
more is needed with the people than a
politician's word to convince them that
Governor Ellerbe is not entitled to a
second term or an endorsement. for
the people to refuse to endorse the
present governor it must be shown
that he is incompetent, that he is cor
rupt and that his administration was
unbusiness-like; the fact that he made
a number of appointments as his own
judgment dictated will not be regard
ed a sufficient cause to refuse an en
~dorsement. The people will want to
know wherein were the "mistakes" the
politicians are charging up to Gov
ernor Ellerbe, if in his appointments
they must show that his appointees,
have impaired the public service that
they were not good, honest and in
tellegent men and that by making
these appointments he has beeu dis
loyal to the Democratic party.
When the Childs bill was up in the
House a majority of our four-dollar
a-dar' statesmen refused to strike out
the enacting words of the bill. Many
of them voted that way out of respect
to Mr. Childs, but when the bill was
on its way to passage they voted to
kill it. We would like to know
'whether these statesmen (?) owed the
people of South Carolina any respect.
In showing their respect to Mr
Childs it took several thousand dol
lars out of the people's pockets, and
if these law-makers had voted as they
felt, and finally did, the enacting
words would have been stricken out
in the offset and these thousands of
dollars would have been saved to an
already tar-burdened people. It may
be argued it was due Mr. Childs that
his bill be allowed a fair chance at
discussion, but it can with more force
be argued if his bill stood no show of
becoming a law, it was an utter waste
of the people's money to discuss it,
when other matters were awaiting a
hearing. We contend that the ma
jority in the House did not intend for
the Childs bill to pass and every man
who voted against striking out the
enacting words simply to allow the
discussion with no intention of voting
for the bill might as well have voted
.imself that many hours or days ex
tra pay. With us it is not a ques
tion of whether the Childs bill was
meritorious or not; it is a question of
legislators are committing out of kind
consideration for one of their num
ber, when that courtesy is a heavy
cost to the taxpayers of the State.
the presiding officer of the State Sen
ate, was last Monday presented with
a beautiful gold-headed cane as a tc
ken of esteem from the clerks and at
taches of that body. It was not only
appreciated by Mr. McSweeney, but
it sends a thrill of joy to the hearts
of thousands of people throughout
this State to know that one in whom
they confided a solemn trust has so
faithfully guarded that trust as to win
the high esteem of his associates.
Lieutenant-Governor McSweeney has
shown himself in the discharge of his
duties a presiding officer second to
none of the illustrious men who
have preceded him in that high
and honorable position, and the
people in making the selection are to
be congratulated. He has so faith
fully performed his duties that even
those who differ with him on faction
al politics admire his prompt and
business-like administration, and they
all, with one accord acknowledge his
fairness and ability. This golden ac
knowledgment of his merit is encour
aging to the young men of the State.
Those who are thrown upon their own
resources can take courage from his
career, and feel that true manhood,
ability and unsullied integrity is ap
preciated in South Carolina. We
congratulate the distinguished gentle
man upon his success, and take this
opportunity to express the hope that
the people throughout the State will
appreciate his merit by re-electing
him without opposition,
By a tie vote the committee to
whom Tillman's bill to amend the
"Wilson Act" was referred, refused to
report favorably, which leaves the
matter standing over until another
session. How this will affect the
present status of the dispensary is
hard to say, because a great many
people wanted their representatives
to defer action until after a report
from the Congressional committee
was had. The liquor men have suc
ceeded in preventing a favorable re
port, and in our opinion, if the United
States Supreme Court sustains Judge
Simonton the prohibition question
will be uppermost in the coming cam
paign. The Prohibitionists are be
ing encouraged to enter the cam
paign, by the liquor element, who be
lieve if successful, it will mean free
whiskey for at least one year. At
present the dispensary is doing well
in the way of curtailing liquor drink
ing, and making friends of many who
at first were opposed to it. There
are thousands of men who, from prin
ciple, will vote against the sale of
liquor in any shape, other than for
medicinal and sacramental purposes,
but when questioned closely they will
admit that the dispensary comes
nearer prohibition tban would an ab
solute prohibition law. These men
realize the impossibility of enforcing
prohibition. They also realize that
with a prohibition law the country
would become flooded with liquor and
there would be no remedy. Every self
respecting citizen would like to see
the sale of liquor stopped, but the
way to stop it has not been discov
ered, not even in States where prohi
bition has been given a full and- fair
The dispensary law enforced is the
only practical solution of the liquor
problem and the longer it remains
upon the statute books, the more
strictly will it be enforced. The de
cision of Judge Simonton created for
a while a condition of annoying law
lessness, by flooding the State with
original package shops, but even this
in a measure is being remedied by
the people themselves refusing to
patronize the places, and shop after
shop is going to the wall.
Under the present management of
the dispensary we scarcely ever hear
of any friction or unpleasantness, for
the reason that the opposition to the
law is dying out so fast that whether
Congress amends the "Wilson Act" to
give States the right to control the
liquor traffic or not, as far as this
State is concernedl the dispensary
law will be enforced, because public
sentiment will demand its snforce
ment, and the forcing. into the coming
campaign any issue other than for the
reducing of taxes without impairing
the government service, would be
nothing more than a hobby horse to
ride into office.
The general assembly will be a
thing of the past tomorrow, the
question is, shall we celebrate?
We would like for some competant
person to tell us why there was so
much politics and so little real bene
ficial legislation in this session of the
"Uncle" George Tfillman has at last
yielded to the importunities of "hisi

ON THE HOME STRETCH.
The General Assembly Ahnost Ready to
[Angrnt Kohn in The News and Courier.]
Columbia, Feb. 13.-The General
Assembly of South Carolina is in its
last days. It has been a pleasant and
serene session, and in a few days
more the law-makers of Carolina will
be at home telling the good people
why they voted for this or against
the other proposition. There will not
be much to be explained this time;
that is, nothing specially now, for
there was not what might be called
radical legislation. No fundamental
change was made in any existing
laws. The dispensary system remains
the same. The county government
system remains unchanged, except in
three or four counties until at least
the next session. Taxes remain the
same. The offices remain the same.
The educational system remains the
same as for years. The machinery of
the courts remains unchanged, and so
the people of the State will witness
no disturbance of their present con
The bulk of the legislation this
year has been of a local and what
might be called imperative character;
that is, the usual appropriation, sup
ply and general laws that have to be
re-enacted every session have been
passed, and in addition there has
STeen a great deal of local legislation
Some of this local law-making has
been necessary, but a great deal more
of it has been absolutely useless, but
as the Yellow Kid says in Hogan's
Alley: "It comes high, but they had
to have me." There could be no
meeting of the Assembly unless such
measures were proposed and alopted,
and so it seems almost a loss of time
and energy to hope for any change in
With the proper effort the General
Assembly could easily have adjourned
yesterday, and if there is no adjourn
ment on Wednesday, as fixed by the
concurrent resolution, it will be an
imposition, and it can only be excused
by some unforeseen event or comph
cation, or the desire of members to
continue their pay of $4 per day, and
it is, of course, presumed that the
law-makers of a great State would
not think of a salary grab. With
Wednesday fixed for final adjourn
ment, legislation stands in much bet
ter shape towards that end than is
usual. It is so unusual and remark
able as to be almost beyond recollec
tion, that the supply and general ap
propriation bills should be in the
hands of committees of conference
three or four days in advance of ad
journment. The House and Senate
have both given the supply and ap
propriation bills their third reading;
both of the houses have indicated
their position on amendments, and
the points of difference have been
emphasized. In the supply bill there
are only three points of difference to
be submitted to the committees; they
are relative to the levy and conditions
for Charleston and Bamberg counties,
and as to the aeneral provision as to
penalties for the non-payment of poll
taxes. It is very unusual for the two
houses to come so near to absolute
agreement upon so general a bill.
There are also very few points of dif
ference on the appropriation bill.
The chief differences on any bill of
general importance are on the county
government bill, and it is doubtful if
heads or tails can be made out of the
matter, althoughjevery one seems to
insist upon a radical improvement of
the existing law. The only thing
that is suggested as being in the way
of final adjournment on Wednesday
is the bill locating the polling pre
cincts of the State. The House be
gan the consideration of this bill last
Saturday evening, and as the Senate
bill is under consideration there
should be no trouble on this score,
and, moreover, if the measure should
entirely fail, the present voting places
are about as good as can be desig
nated in a new Act, and there need
be no occasion to spend thousands of
dollars to arrange for polling pre
cincts, when the elections in South
Carolina are settled at the primaries,
and the polling places now in exist
ence are as satisfactory as any new
adjustment would be.
Reports from conference commit
tees have been received earlier than
usual, and practically all of the differ
ences on bills between the two houses
have been obliterated.
Whatever of fighting still remains
is mostly on the Senate side, where
both of the new county propositions
are; where the separate coach bill is
awaiting its usual fate; where the
Verner dispensary exemption bill is
resting on the calendar, and where
quite a number of other important
matters are awaitiing consideration,
death or adoption.
PoLITIcs IN THE ASSEMBLY.
Politics and liquor have been two
of the features of the session's work.
The political talk and ups and downs
have been prolific, and will not close
with the session, but members will
no doubt take home with them the
inspirations and prejudices against
certain candidates and measures that
have been nursed in Columbia. M~ost
of the politics here has been of a
quiet order, except when it broke
forth in all of its fury in the election
of the Comptroller General and on
the printing ~propositions. These were
really the only two occasions on which
the political schemes came to the sur
face, but volumes might be written of
what is, and has been, going on be
neath the surface. There has been
no end of gubernatorial prospecting,
and, while there are now several can
didates before the public as self-'
avowed or placed in nomination by
their friends, it would appear that
the list is not complete. By that is
meant that a number of entries have
been announced, and a number have
been suggested, but when the start is
made at the first campaign meeting
the list is likely to be materially
changed. Some of those now looked
upon as candidates will for good andI
sufficient reasons not be at the start
ing pole, and others who have not got
ten the same degree of prominence
as possibilities that others now en
joy, will be at the first meeting to
make the race.
THE PEOPLE TO HAVE A SAY.
The present session has empha
sized the liquor problem as an issue!
in the approaching campaign. The
issue was clouded during this ses
sion, because of the lack of combined
effrt and organization on the part of
the opponents of the present system,
and the opposite condition on the
part of the friends of the system.
There has never been such a total
and absolute demoialization of forces
and lack of purpose as there is with
those who are opposing the existing
state of affairs relative to the liquor
question. Had there been the proper
effort made to change the conditions,
there is no telling what might have
happened. The House on every prop
osition it has had that did not con
template the change of the entire law
for something that was not matured,
has voted against the dispensary.
The bill to exempt three counties
from the operations of the law went
through the House by a decisive vote.
The resolution repudiating the grant
ing of hotel privileges was unani
niously passed by the House, and so
it went. It was no wonder that the
Childs bill was not acceptable, when
its author said it was imperfect and
did not even suit him. Mr. Meares's
rider was impromptu and a sort of
feeler. Mr. Pollock's bill was merely
intended to reach the "original pack
age" stores, and meant no serious
change of the existing conditions.
Mr. Hydrick's bill has not had a fair
test, and the "snuffers" have been put
on Mr, Simkins's resolution looking
to a popular election on the matter.
In the Senate they were not ready
for a change. It is somewhat re
markable that the dispensary advo
cates have persistently and repeatedly
refused to allow Mr. Simkins's bill to
come up on its merits, when it merely
proposes to let the people of the
State-not of the counties-say what
solution of the liquor problem they
want. The bill has been held down
so that it will not now have time to
pass, and Mr. Simkins has offered it
in the shape of a concurrent resolu
tion, but in the closing hours of a ses
sion no measure has a fair showing.
A year ago matters stood quite
differently, and it is noticeable on all
WILD TALE ABOUT TILLMAN.
There is again some little talk about
the hotel lobbies that Senator Tillman
will come down and take a hand in
the next primary, not as the partisan
of any of the candidates-he has bad
about enough of that. The sugges
tion is that he will make the race for
Governor himself, and do so on the
dispensary platform, and spend two
years, if need be, in getting that
system back into working order ac
cording to his view of the way things
ought to be run. Ibis, of course, is
mere talk, and it would be the unex
pected if Senator Tillman should let
go in Washington, for even a short
while, to worry his head with the
troubles his pet is having in Carolina.
New county fights always provoke
intense feeling. This is unfortunate,
but it appears that it cannot be help
ed. Lee County and Pee-Dee have
been the bones of contention during
the present session, and the trouble
is not yet over. Lee County passed
in the House by a tremendous ma
jority, and the resolutions, giving the
friends of Pee-Dee County another
trial, also prevailed, although the
Senate committee reported unfavora
bly on the Lee County proposition, if
there be time enough to get the bill
through, the impression is growing
that Lee County will soon be on the
map of the State, and that Bishopville
will be radiant with happiness at
being a county seat.
There are several more new county
propositions within the range of near
possibility, and after these have had
their trial, whether successful or -not,
it will very likely be four or more
years before another batch of new
counties present themselves. - This
condition is brought about by. the
limitations the Constitution imposes,
and which cannot readily be sur
mounted, and in several instances
time- has to be taken for population
and wealth to grow.

HROUGH the kindness of th
editor of THE TIMES we have
been given this space, which we will
occupy every two weeks. This is a
new undertaking for us who are to
have charge of this work and we de
sire in the beginning to ask the co
operation of every teacher who has
an interest in the success of this col
umn and a desire to become more
useful as a teacher. Let's make this
work just as practical as possible, lay
ing aside theories ; let's try to make
suggestions and plans that can be ap
plied in our county schools. By ex
changing our ideas, we can help one
another. Nor would we be exclusive;
we would be glad to have something
from parerts or others who are inter
ested in the improvement of ur
If by this means we can obtain a
free expression of opinions and a
clear exchange of methods, we will

A School Library.
There are few things that have so
powerful an influence as good books.
A well chosen library is a continual in
tellectual feast; it broadens our men
tal horizon and deepens our spiritual
life. If we cannot know the authors
personally, we can feel the great heart
throb of one who was in sympathy
with human nature; we can read his
best thoughts and highest ideals. This
close contact with our greatest and
best men and women is necessarily
beneficial in every respect. There
are so many good books and so little
time for reading them we should
never read a worthless one; therefore
select well for our children and young
This important duty falls upon the
teacher to a great Extent; he must
form the pupil's taste, and how can
this be done if there is no school li
brary? Make a beginning by some
means and then you have a founda
tion upon which to build. Ask your
trustees to contribute; get each pat
ron to give a small sum, have an en
tertainment of some kind, organize a
library association, or devote some of
your surplus tuition to this worthy
cause. Collect all of the books of the
neighborhood in the schoolhouse and
allow the larger pupils to carry them
home with them, returning in good
condition after a week's use; deprive
them of this privilege if they abuse a
book. This will give all access to
each book in the community.
Use even the small collection by
giving para!lel reading and frequent
references to the collection. By all
means have a library. A teacher
could not erect a more lasting monu
ment! Begin now; do not wait for
the next teacher or session.
Keeping After School.
There may be instances where it is
necessary to keep in after school, but
~they sare rare. It is an injustice to
both teacher and pupil, after working
six or seven hours during the day, to
have to remain in the afternoon.
Broken down, as they usually are,
they need the short time before night
for recreation, to be able to meet the
duties of the next day. But how are
we to get out of it? Make an appeal
to the ambitious class or pupil and
give written work to those who lack
ambition. Tell them their marks or
position in the class and urge them
to improve it. Never get into the
habit of keeping after school; don't
let it happen often, but make it a
punishment when it does happen.
*Use music regularly and often in
your school; it shortens long hours
and makes the school--oom more
Vary your exercises on Friday af
ternoon; formality will make any
thing tiresome, but "variety is the
spice of life."
Give frequent practice in composi
tion and letter-writing; this will help
to a proper use of words and a free
expression of one's thoughts.
Encourage debating and declama
tion and thus enable your pupils to
be able to "think on their feet" be
fore an audience; they may need it
in after-life. G.
