Thist is the last session and ext pf iber every inan in the iouse and Many -memiberis of he senate will go before the people asking for re-election and hey want to take a "record" 3ack horhe with them. This ;Ituation,lenils strength to the proposed constructive measures. [t is possible that the proposed measures will receive the sup port of those who want to show the "home folks" that they have accomplished something In the legislature. Among the more important measures to be considered at this session will be: Compul 3ory education, reformation of the primary system, medical in 3pection of school children, crea tion of a central board of tax as sessors, final disposition of the convicts labor problem at the state penitentiary, appropriation for an exhibit at the Panama Pacific exposition, cotton ware house bill, appropriation for the state hospital for the treatment of tuberoulosis, commission to study pellagra, appropriation for a pellagra hospital, general financial policy toward the state hospital for the insane, quest tions involving the refunding of the state dept for $6,000,000, bill to provide for an official execu tioner at the penitentiary, changes in the criminal statutes appropriations for state institu tions, and an appropriation of $40,000 to fight the cattle tick. Places To Be Filled. The general assembly will convene January 13. The hear ing of the annual message by the governor will be the first busi ness of the house. The next few days will be given over to elections. Among the places to be filled are: Associate justice of the supreme court, several directors of the state peniten tiary, insurance commissioner, and a state librarian. Those who are acquainted with the situatiou declare that there will be a bill introduced at this session to throw the proper safeguards about the primary system in South Carolina. If the bill fails, then it'will be left to the state democratic conven tion.. E, P. Mc~ravey, of Pickens. made a napie foi' himself in the last general assembly by tals valiant fight for a local option compulsory school attendance bill. He is expected to reintro duce this measure at the com ing se.ssion and It is generally conceded that the'bill will get through regardless of the op position of the administration. The measure has the support of J. E. Swearingen, state superin tendent of education. At the last session the bil i passed both houses, was vetoed by the gov ernor. passed over the veto by tha house and met its defeat in1 the senate, which was char acterizedas a "childish body," by one of its members. Child Labor Legislation Members of the child labor committee in South Carolina are urging the members "of the house and senate, through let ters, to raise the age limit for children working in mills to 14 years. It is believed that a bill of this nature will be passed, but that it wvil1 not be put into operation before 1915. - Physicians of South Carolina will urge upon the members the necessity for the passage of a medical inspection bill. A vital statistics measure may also be urged. This la considered one of the most important pieces of legislation and one- that would prove of lasting good to the peo ple of the state. The bill has the endorsement of the medical association. There is a good chance for the cotton warehouse bill1 to be pass ed, although many fear that it would not stand the constitu tional test that would -have to be given In the su preme court. John McLaurin, of Marlboro, Is the'advocate of 'this measure and he is using his influence. The Insane Hospital Something of a substantial nature must be done to relieye the situiation at the state hospi tal for the insatie. The state's unfortunate must be cared for and the present buildings are Inadequate. The asylum tom mission, charged , with the im penment work at "State Park" prtiless .and an appropria some kind will have to be made if the improvements are to continue. .

Many argue that it would be a good thing for the legislature to decide' for once and all time a definite pol icy toward the asylum. It is pointed out that this piece of legislation must be enacted soon er or later and that it might as well come at this session. Farmers of South Carolina are intensely interested in the campaign to eradicate the cattle tick. The house and senate will this year be asked for an appropriation of $40,000 to prose cute this work, on the condition that the national department of agriculture contribute a similar amount. As an argument in favor of this appropriation, it h as been said that the state is losing $1,000,000 a year by the --rav ages of the pest. I'Tax Notice. Oflce of County Treasurer, P'ickens County.
