OUR LEGISLATURE.
Both Houses show inclination for
work. A resolution went whizzing
through the House to investigate the
Dispensary?the .Senate higgled at it
?roferrcd it and it is pending. Mr
Simkins has a bill to remedy an irre
gularity OS to Grand Jurors in this
county, it will be law in a few du\s.
Associate Justice Eugene Gary has
been re-olected to serve for eight years
from next July, when his present term
expires. Mr. Gray don, of Abbeville,
introduced in tho House a Joint Re
solution to investigate Fertilizer
Trusts, and to report If the Virginia
Cemicnl Co. had violated the. anti
Trust law of this State. About the re
commendations of the Governor to dis
pense with the Dispensary hoard of
control and county boards, there will
bo stout debate But Politicians will
1^ hesitate to rede CO lobs and there is
not likely to bo radical changes. It is
good policy to stick to jobs. Other
wise the life in tiranco agent, the real
"stale agent, the look agent, the clock
peddler, and the str<ct vendci of im
proved crystal glasses will burden the
earth. It will not do to reduce jobs
When Pandora's box was opened and
tho thousand "ills that llosh is heir to"
flow abroad the lid was closed and the
hope of olllce alone remained. So long
as there is a director in the Peniten
tiary to be eleoled nobody need de
spair and there are three to bo elected.
A county court Bill passed the Senate
and House, but as Luurens with twen
ty-eight other counties is exempted
from its operations wc do not give its
provisions. Mr. Winklet has intro
duced an elaborate bill to revolution
ize the administration of tho Dispen
sary. It preserves the sale monopoly
to the counties and by Us many
guards is a eavugo commentary upon
tho management of the past. It ap
peals to the cupidity of the Mute as u
tux-saving agency, and in this is ob
iectionablc, but it intends to prov.de
healthful spirits for the stomachs of
the drinkers, und the profits go to edu
cate tho girls und boys. Tho head liar
tender gets $.'{,000 and there .are many
fat jobs provided ami the rush for
them will be cyclonic This bill stands
a good chance to win But there is one
oncouraging prospect in all this. Seme
bold legislator nitty prevail upon the
State to monopolize the tobacco, and
pistol and cartridge business and thus
taxation will be abolished and no man
in the State need bo concerned further
about tho problem of keeping body
and soul together. Bush the principle
and after a while the more a man buys
from the State the more the State will
pay him b ck, and the tbousaudc of of
ficial plums! Sumo Statesman has
chance to eclipse Ben Tollman. A Bill
has been Introduced to prevent shad
being sent out of the State, fit should
provide that a battalion from this lati
tude with lyddite shells be sent to
Georgetown to enforce the law.) One
Solon is moving straight upon the
cigarette column. Charleston is di
recting her forces against the swamps
W along our eastern shores and this is an
? indirect threat upon the mosquito
F fleet. IIovuc passes a bill to require
' marriage license, 2? cents. Income tax
Act will go There is danger of a big
lump sum to rebuild the State House.
In the House, composed of 124
members, Stevenson, of Cheraw. seems
to be the bellwenther, with u Disposi

Governor, notion, v, iintl
in view to give our Legislators no ex
? diso in providing suitable legislation
tier every emergency and all the wants
of tho State. Nothing is presented to
provoke antt.^onism, his idea to per
potuate the Dispensary excepted.There
may be some ou'side the General As
sembly to combat his Excellency's
position that the settled policy of the
State to maintain Clomson, Winthrop
and other State educational institu
tions, should be adhered to. But the
Governor will bo sustained in these
views consonant with the well estab
lished policy of the Stato in tho puss
Ing as well as pust decides. All in all,
it is a most practical paper, showing
industrious Investigation and consid
eration of public conditions and tho
General Assembly, as woll as the peo
ple, should feel that tho public inter
oats are In safo hands. As to tho Dia
ponsary It will probably be allowed
to drift along and uftor awhile it will
sink of its own weight. Nobody is car
ing about it, or bothering, except the
beneficiaries. It will not bo a question
in tho ensuing campaign. If prohibi
tion nuts forth a ticket, however, it
will have to fight the "thrice armed"
hosts of dispensary, and antl dispen
sary. Should tho Governor be a can
didate to succeed himself he nettl ap
prehend no dispensary or anti-dispen
sary Davids in his path. Gov. Mc

There hfte been sevoro criticism of a
lecture of Judge Buchanan to a Jury
at Spartanburg which failed to agree
upon a verdict. Of course tho Judge
and the Jury hnvo different functions.
Tho Jury finds tho facts. But tho

bo no hook upon which to hang u

The Twentieth Century?
Isn't it strange that so many of
us cannot, locate tho 20th oeu
tury? The paper?, BOmctimo
since, stated that a church assent
l>ly spent a foronoon in trying to
(lud out whou tlie century would
begin, and a very clever and in
tell igen t gentieinau said ho would
not cure to live into tho twentieth
century. Ho simply Bpoke with
out thinking, imagining, perhaps,
that ho would have to bridge :i
century to roach it.
It is simple enough to anyone
who will hold his thoughts for a
moment. As it takes ten years to
make a deoado and this is the last
year of tho last decade of the cen
tury, it. will 0I08O at 12 o'clock p.
m. on the JMst of next Dooomber
and the new century ushered in
by the ringing of the jubilee bells
all over tho world, beginning at
Jerusalem, tho supposed centre
of tho planet.
There are those who persist in
believing that they entered the
new century on the first instant.
They will find out later that thoy
are mistaken.
I regret that I was unablo to
visit your hospitable city onco
more before I returned home, in
order to call upon some friends
t had not met and to bid them all
good bye. 1 was prevented from
doing so by painful injuries sus
tained in a fn'l and from tho ef

Confederate veteran who draws a pen
don, in baurenscounty, to the great
Confederate re-union in Louisville,
Kentucky, which opens on the 20th of
next May.
Below appears a printed ballot with
a Idank space on which the name of
the veteran for whom y. u wisli to vote
may be written in ink or pencil. Clip
this ballot and hand it or send it to
The Advertiserofficeby mail. Any
person may vote as many of these bal
lots as ho chooses and persons living
out of the county may vote.
The contest will ho confined to pen
sior.e s, because the advertiskr de
sires some veteran to have this trip
who would otherwise be unable to
make it. Ballots will appear every
week up to and Including May 23rd so
that every subscriber will be able to
vi te about twenty times between this
and the end of the contest. The ballots
can of course be saved and voted alto
gether.
The Advertiser prints each week
ber<k, ;iay' papers which are for sale
and are not sent to subscribers. These
papers may lie bought, for live cents
each now ?s heretofore, but no order
for extra papers outside of these Will
be received. Therefore the voting will
be practically confined to regular sub
scribers and the person who subscribes
now will have that many more oppor
tiniites to vote for one of his old
f iends. No one in any way connected
with tho publication Ol the adver
tiser will be allowed to vide.
Eaofa week the names of the persons
voted for and tho number of votes will
be published. It will be a good idea to
begin your voting next week so that if
you have a friend whom you wish to
get this trip the readers of the ad
vertiser will know that he Is being
voted for.
Readers will understand that Tin:
advertiskr will pay all the railroad
expenses of the veteran getting the
