FEBRUARY 27, 1913 WI DAYS VIORK OF i THE LEGISLATORS WHAT IS BING DONE BY THE GEN ERAL ASSEMBLY OF SOUTH CAROLINA. DELAY THE EDUCATION BILL Play Light Opera in the Upper Branch -The "Filibuster" Suggsted As Suit able Title.-Are Not Doing Very Much Work Senate-Monday. Without division the senate passed and ordered sent to the house the La ney-Banks-Beamguard bill to transfer the State Hospital for the Insane to State Park and to dispose of the pres ent plant and lands; amending the measure, at the instance of Senator Laney, to place the disposition of the present property in the hands of the State sinking fund commission, and providing that the proceeds of the sale go into the state treasury to be paid out in legislative appropriations, as needed, for the upbuilding of the new hospital. The senate, also, passed the Dennis timber tax bill, with 26 coun ties exempted, requiring that cut tim ber be entered on the county tax books as personal property. Richland county was exempted. by request of Senator Weston. The bill does not apply to individuals or corporations cutting timber for local purposes. A flood of bills came over from the house. The governor's message trans mitting Secretary of State Knox's com munication on the direct election of United States senators was referred in the senate to the committee on privileges and elections. House-Monday. A special one mill tax for the free public schools of South Carolina will be levied this year if the senate fol lows the example of the house which passed to second reading a measure to this effect. The hill was introduc ed by Mr. Mitchell of Georgetown, but the house adopted the amendment pro posed by the ways and means com mittee and signed by Mr. Nicholson of Greenwood on behalf of the committee, which was. to all intents and purposes a substitute fo rthe original bill. Senate-Tuesday. The Senate concurred in the House resolution authorizing the use of $1, 000 of the fund to aid the Confederate reunions and to aid the needy veter ans to go to Gettyskurg in July. The Melfi bill to establish kinder gartens as a part of the public school system went to a third reading. Senator Nicholson called up his primary law bill, which he hopes will be a means of safeguarding that sys tem, and the best part of the morn Ing was consumed in its discussion. Discussion of it was interrupted only by the coming of the House for the purpose of ratifying numerous bills. The prevailing sentiment was for con tinuance of the measure until next session, principally because its con sideration would be amiss after so hot a campaign as that last summer; though, as Senator Clifton pointed out, the consideration of it next ses sion would immediately precede an other election. Senator Nicholson did not press the matter. H ouse-Tuesday. A majority of the members of the South Carolina House of Representa tives agreed to repudiate the contract the state made with 3. M. Graham, of Columbia. and to abolish the hosiery mill at the penitentiary. By a vote of 59 to 41 the House refused to strike out the enacting words of the bill to abolish the hosiery mill, introduced by Mr. Wyche, of Spartanburg. Mr. Moore, of Abbeville, moved to recommit the Mitchell 1 mill special school tax bill. During the course of the debate the House received a special message - rom the governor, which said he would refuse to sign the 1 mill school tax bill should it pass the General Assembly in its present form. By an aye and nay vote of 77 to 33, the House refused to recommit the bill an~i sent it to the Senate without amendment. Senate-Wednesday. After refusing by a vote of 23 to 1G~ to table the measure, the Senate after long debate continued until next ses sion the Nicholson bill to throw re strictions around the primary system of the state. The Clifton amendment was killed by a vote of 29 to 11. The Senate passed over the head of the governor the Hall bill to pay to supervisors in Cherokee county certain salaries, and the Carlisle bill with reference to the commission form of government In the city of Spartanburg. The Strait pension bill was con tinued until next session. The House 1 mill tax bill was re ported to the Senate without refer ence. There was talk of the General As sembly reinaining over another week until all bills are heard from. House-Wed nesd1ay. An unavailing attempt was made in -the house to- recommit the Wyche bill to abolish the hosiery mill at the pen itentiary. After a debate the house . the bill hack to the committee and ordered it to the senate. The governor sent the house a mes sage vetoing the act to permit the authorities in Greenville count.: to destroy contrabrand liquor they seiz ed. Another act has been passed to give contrabrand liquor to poor houses and hospitals in the -tarious counties. "Claim No. 59, James Henry Rice, $1,900" for services as chief galie warden during 101: was ordered paid by the house and sent to the senate. Senate-Thursday.

The Wyche bill to allow the fore men of grand juries, or acting fore men, to swear witnesses in the grand jury room, was passed to a third reading so amended as to exempt Richland and several other counties. The magistrates bill was amended but not passed. House-Friday. The House obtained the consent of! the Senate to adjourn until next Wednesday night at 8:15 o'clock. For two days the House has been in a blissful state of idleness, awaiting the action of the Senate on the appro prit ion bill, supply bili, compulsory school attendance bill, 1 mill special school tax bill and otlier important measures. Although the Senate was unanm mous in voting to override the veto f the governor on the Carlisle bill, reducing the number of councilmen in Spartanburg from four to two un ier the commission form of govern ment, 69 members of the House voted : sustain the veto while ~33 voted to verride it when the act and the mels sage were taken up yesterday. Following the precedent set during this session, the House voted to sus .an the governors veto of this local measure, this time by a lurg~r rn jor ity than on any ve-tocd act. Seniate-Saturday.
