By the time this reaches the most of our readers the 1902 ses sion of the legislature will be a thing of the past, as both houses will adjourn this week. The present session has marked the enactment of no very startling measures. Most of the work has been of a routine nature, but such work as was necessary to be done once every year m pro viding ways and revenue and mapping out plans for running the State government another year. The number of bills passed is scarcely up to that of the aver age session, and this speaks well for the State and the law mak ers. Perhaps the most impor tant bill was the one regulating the jury law and making that law uniform in all the counties and putting it beyond all ques tion of puncture by the supreme court. The passage of that law alone was sufficient to necessitate the meeting of the general as sembly, and who knows but that the same emergency may arise next year or some subsequent year and upon some other sub ject, thus making it necessary for the people to meet imlegisla ture assembled at the earliest possible moment. The State has been divided into new Con gressional districts, which are more compact and nearer even in territory and population than the old districts were. Some important weak points have also been remedied in the general road law, Judge Gage setting it aside as unconstitution al in one county, and legislation has been necessary to make the law uniform and constitutional. The report of the Code commis sioner has been adopted, thus validating and making lawful an epitomized codification of all the statutes of the State since 1893, a work which is necessary to be done every ten years. The child labor question, the bi-ennial ses sions question. the question of restricting the powers of trusts, have also been discussed and the members given an opportunity to ventilate their views thorough-I ly, largely for home consump tion, but nothing definite upon these subjects has b ee n done. These measures have af-! forded a safety valve for the escapement of a great deal of political buncomb, especially in the house, and in doing this alone they have served a good purpose, for the people, many of them, strange to say, are fond of hearing such things and will enjoy hearing these matters re- ! hashed in the campaign the comn ing summer by political aspirants. While a few members have felt that their dignity was offended occasionally and have arisen to questions of "personal privi-! lege," yet the session in general has been rather marked by good feeling. *Taken all in all the session has been up to the average, and in some respects, better-better in the fact that it not only has done some good things, but has done nothing radically wrong that we recall just now. It has at least served one great purpose, and that is to afford the people of South Carolina an opportunity to meet in convention assembledj and to discuss measures and pol;e itics. We doubt if there is an other people in the United States endowed with more patriotism or who are just like the average South Carolinians, and like they have always been. They must meet in representative bodies, and must discuss public ques tions and politics. If they do| not meet in the legislature they I will meet some other way. The inflated store of politics and statesmanship has been ventilat ed and the people ought now to get along until the campaign opens the coming summer. The people of South Carolina love to have frequent meetings and they seem willing to pay for them, and in fact we cannot see how they can get along without an nual sessions of the legislature. $100 Reward, $100.

THACHER Your D1 CAPITAL CORRESPONDENCE. SENATE CHAMBER, Cclumbia, S. C., Feb. 17, 1902. We are on the home stretch, notwithstanding the fact that the House Calendar is chock-a-block and by tomnorrow the- rush of bills that will come over tr the Senate will be a shuddering pil. There seems to Le a great ten dency at this session of the gen eral assembly to cripple business interests under the guis% of strik ing -corporations and trusts." and the main concern aimed :st was the Virginia Carolina Chem ical Company., a concern owing the principal fertilizer factories in this State, and which, had it not have been for its liberalness and leniency the past year. there would have been general bank ruptcy among that class of farm ers who bought heavily of fertil izers and those merchants who did anadvancing business. There was a bill to repeal the charter of this concern, which was back ed up by the Attorney general or rather, under the instructions of the general assembly of last vear he brought suit against this company in the courts for violating the terms of their char ter, and it is his desire to com pel foreign corporations doing business in this State to be sub jected to our State courts, and not be allowed to carry their causes inti the United States courts. The measures had strong support. as they produced a fine opportunity for politicians to indulge in a whole lot of gal lery playing, and to pose for home consumption. This class of politicians will go before the people and denounce corpora tions, and impress thi-m that these institutions are possessed of the devil and should be run oun of the country, and then turn right around and urge the coming of these corporations amongst us. If at a meeting of business men these fellows will urge that we make all kinds of concessions to induce capital, and when they go out on the stump they resort to all manner of devices to arouse prejudice. The Senate made up of practical. men had this proposition before it on Friday, and some very fine speeches were made on both sides, but the speech of not only the day, but the entire four years I that I have been a member of that body was made by Senator Walker from Georgetown. This: gentleman spoke in opposition to the bill and by his clear cut sentences, his brilliant portrayal' of the good capital is doing to the State, and the dire conse uences which will follow such~ reckless legislation, also his eloquent exposition of the falsity of the charges against the com - pany, that instead of violating the law as alleged the company; followed the law. When he fin ished there were other speeches for and against, but the Walker speech had struck down the scales, and by two to one vote the enacting words were strick-. n out. Our delegation met in my' room last Wednesday, and all matters concerning the county! were discussed; we unanimously greed to keep the levy the same' s last year. The matter of iving the sheriff an additional $100 to help him pay the salary. f a deputy. and to increasing: the magistrates salary at St Paul was about the only thing the elegation have had that they were not unanimous on: a major ity of the delegation agreed that n the interest of the public ser-' vice it was just and proper to ake the increase, especially as t would not affect the tax levy. Mr. Galluchat was opposed to~ any increase, and Messrs Rich ardson, Woods and myself fax ored it. I was called upon to suggest the names of Supervisors of reg istration, and this I submitted at this meeting. Mr. Richardson proposed the name of Mr. P. B.. Mims, but the delegation decided that as there were no complaints against the present board, it would not be right to turn out one and leave the rest,therefore they oncluded to recommend the present board which consists of (.~ T. Worsham. Seloe: C. T. Ridgeway, Foreston: and E. 1.. Gamble, Manning. It is proper to state that Mr. Galluchat's op-' position to the increasing of the salaries was not through any personal ill-will towards either f the officers, and that Mr. Richardson's proposal of the name of Mr. Mims. was not be-: cause he had any objections to the present board, but that Mr. Mims represented a portion of the county that in his judgement; was entitled to representation. Clarendon is no longer in the Sixth Congressional district, a circumstance I regret, because we have learned to know the people of the counties composing that district, but under an Act of Congress the State had to be re districted, and the bill wvhichl passed the House was not at all satisfactory to me: our delega tion was equally dlivided on it. Messrs Richardson and Gallu chat favored Clarendon bemn put in with Sumter, Orangeburg, Lexington and Richland, and Dr. Woods and myself oppos.ed it. I took the position that we have no community of interests with Richland, Lexington and 2rangeburg, and to put us with them we would not amount to the little white tip on the end of a dogs tail, then I was otfered N GOOD HEALTH b 'S LIVER AND E uggist sells it. 25 anrd 5l the Gruber amendment, which put Clarendon with Sumter, Richland. Lexington. Saluda,, and Edgefield, which was jump ing out of the frying pan into the tire neither proposition suit ed, so the House bill was so aoin' -nided that Clarendon Was plcd with Berkeley, Dorches ter. Colleton and Charleston to which I agreed, because I think our interests are more akin to those of the lower counties. and could I have succeeded in getting in Williamsburg and pu t .n' Colleton elsewhere as I tried to do. we would have had a ticient distriet: as it is t.V will have a gzood one anyway wt as much chance for a Cla rendon ILIanl to go to Congress as sh . ever had.- Clarendon is now In the iirst CongressionaI (Iis trict. almitost where she was or iinally. P is a wfull hard to 'et legisla tion started. when it is proPCsu late, and becaiise of the delay in getting the bill. I am very much afraid the bill to define thelimits of the town of Summerton and to prohibit the sale of liquor therein will not get throu'gh the House. I received the bill last Tuesday from Mr. Purdy and immediately had two copies made. I took one to the House and got Dr. Woods to introduce it there, I also introd uced it in the Senate, this was done to rush it. I have not heard what has become of it in the House, but I think it is hung up in committee: the Senate bill was passed to a third reading Saturday and if I can reach it to night it will be over in the House tomorrow where I will urge our delegation to push it. It is a very diflicult thing to: do, to take bills up out of their regular order when the Calen dar is full of other bills possibly more important and away ahead, one objection prevents taking up a bill out of its place to advance it over others, however I will press it through the Senate and Doctor Woods has promised me' to watch it specially in the House. We had a visit from the Cook County Democracy from Chica go. I was on the reception com mittee to receive them and they were a jolly lot too. When they were leaving they made a great effort to kidnap the Governor, I Colonel Watsou and myself to carry us off to Charleston. but' we found out their game and would not be trapped, hut the legislature being in session was the only draw back to our going with the jolly crowd of Western ers... We also had a visit from! the National Association of Rail Road Commissioners, and among the number were three Lieuten-, ant Governors fr-om Maine, Penn slvania and Texas, all made bref speeches to the Senate. In this party were many ladies. In my last letter I said that the jury law would not get through in time for our court,~ this is a mistake, if our officers will read the law carefully they -an fill the box and draw the jury in plenty of time. Solicitor Wilson had to leave s to attend court at Florence, and I am very much afraid that I will have to go there also, as I am to testify in the case of the State against Smith & Dennis harged with the burning of, Timmonsville.
