Or. Sorrell of the Southern Rail
way Expresses Views About
Anderson County
"The best live stock section of Vir
ginia is ?o belter fur raising cattle
than is Anderson County," said Dr.
Walter Sorrell, assis it live stock
agent of the Southern Railway, when
he returned to the city ?last, night.
Dr. Sorrell had been spending the
day in Anderson County, visiting
some half-frozen* prominent farmer?
who are interested in-the raising of
live stock, an-' who are striving to
interest their neighbors.
Discussing his visit here with. a
reporter for The intelligencer last
night, Dr Sorrell said that he was
here principally to get a line on the
live stock industry In this section '.*
He said that Anderson was one of
the best situated counties for live
stock raising to be found either in
the Carolinas or Virginia, end point
3u to some ui' the auvatu^K-ee that
Anderson possesses, stressing the
fact that here is plenty of running
water, whereas in some counties this
cannot be obtained. He said that
his examination yesterday of the soil
A the county abo wed him that ic
was particularly adapted to \grass
growing, and cited this as a decided
advantage of this section over the
Western States. "Yet," said Dr.
Sorrell, "your people are content to
continue Importing cullie from the
West,' when they can raise better cat
tle herc at home."
He said , that if the people of this
immediate section of the Piedmont
country would put the time on their
grazing lands and prepare them as
they have been prepared in Virginia

industry on a better basis than could

Dr. Sorrell said that with the ad
vent of the movement to purchase
J rood stock and raise mules and
?orses at home, the troubles of the
farmer had come to an end. He

created such a stir in the senate
Thursday night.
"I notice from the Journal that, in
rising to a question of personal privi
lege one Neils Christensen styling
himself Senator from Beufort, has
seen lit to jay that I was once trus
tee of a negro college. This is true,
but when he says that I was a can
didate for the job, he is mistaken.
The facts are that some years ago
cortie friends of mine came to me and
stated that on account of the fact
that I was opposed to white people'.^
money being used to educate negroc?,
they wanted me t ngo on the board of
trustee of the State Colored College.
After conversation with them, I fin
ally agreed, for the purpose of en
deavoring to reduce appropriations
for that institution. I went on the
board and found there as good men
as South Carolina has ever produced,
and none of them had been captain
or sons of the captains of a negro
company in the Union army, who
led charges -.-with negro itroon?
against the white soldiers of the
Southern Confederacy.
That, however, in my opinion, is
quite different from being trustee of
a private negro school. I believe
practically every board of white trus
tees in the State are also trustees
of negro public schools, but I do
not believe that htose trustees would
for a moment accept tho trusteeship
of a private negro school. Nor do
l believe they would giv enegroes as
theri reference.
Today I am ex-officio chairman of
the board of trustees of the negro
college for this state. Every other
Governor has been since that college
was established. Therefore, any
man who would refuse to be ex-of
ficion trustee of a negro college,
would have to decline to ' be Gover
nor of thc State. But this- is quite
different ?rom being the trustee of

Governor May Use **iz Veto Power
Columbia, Jan. 30.-Following is a j
message sent to the general assem-1
bly Thursday night by Governor
Bl ease:
"I have in messages heretofore
called your attention to the appro
priations made for the ' ?tate's higher
institutions of learning. I ' desire
now again to call your attention to
this matter, and to suggest that you
paSs your appropriation bill in such
shape that you will not bo of neces
sity forced to over-ride a veto of an
entire amount for fear of closing or
in jurying any school, aud that you
wiii not bc forced ir. this manner to
vote for a much larger appropria
tion than is necessary for the school.
"I would suggest, therefore, that
when you pass your appropriation
bill, instead of saying, for instance.
For the University of South Caro
lina $198,000, that you say, for the
University of South Carolina, for
maintenance so much, law building
?o much, new dormitory so much, and
io* on-that is, that you pass it in
itemized items, and not in bulk items.
I fear, gentlemen, that if you do
not ?jo thin, some of these institu
tions are going to make extraordi
narily large demands this year, and
tha tyou will find yourselves in a
position, when you shall have finish
id, that you will have to raise your
State levy considerably, and that if
[ should decide to use the veto pow
;r that the argument will then be
used to you. "Oh, if you sustain
this veto you will close the school,
rou* will hurt the college."
"Now I do not know that I am go
ing to veto any of the items in the
tppronriatoin bill. I think possibly
it ls hbout time, just on the eve of
in election, to let you gentlemen do
lust as you please, then for the Gov
ernor to sign the hill, and issue a

Tact of his signing the hill, as he

All Contagious Diseases in Ander
sno Must Be Reported to
State Board.
Local pbyf-lclans have received a
letter from Janies A. Hayne, M. D.,
State health officor, calling their at'
tentlon to the law which requires
every physician to report to the stat<
board of health every case of con
tagious cr communicable diseases,
upon a penalty of $25 fine for failure
to comply with the requirement. A
copy of the letter which was sent to
1,300 physicians of the state fol
"I am sending ten postal cards for
the reporting of contagious disease,
occurring in your practice during thi
coming year. As soon aa you diag
nose, or have reasonable suspicion
of a case hoing contagious or coi.
municable, fill in one of these cards

report to your local board, but send
direct to this ofllce. These card cost j
ibo state avconsidcrable, sum of moue
so do not throw thom away, or u
them for other purposes than report
ing contagious diseases. The law in
regard to the reporting of contagious
diseases by physicians is clear, and
a failure to report is punishable by j
a fine of ?25. I feel sure however,
that I can count on the physicians
helping to prove that South Carolina
is not the unhealthy state it in be
lieved to be on account of its morbi
dity statistics being based upon those'
Charleston. I alBo enclose a list of'
diseases adopted by the state board of
health to bo reported. Of course, a
great many of these diseases are very
rare, and some of them hare ue\
occurred in South Carolina, but the
list was only adopted for the sake ot
unformity, it being the one agreed
upon by all tho states."
