the action of the majority, that tho

warn you that you may not be caught
?' this little subterfuge in your com

home do not know of the discussions
and the action in your committee
room; these are not published and
are not presented to the people. But
your vote In the house is recorded in
the public Journals and when you go
home and your people say, "I see you
voted for such and such large appro
priation," you say, ' Oh, yes, but I
voted against it in the committee,"
your people cannot understand this,
and your opponents turn it to your
disadvantage, and they should; for It
Is not what you do in the committee,
but It is what you do on the floor of
tho house nnd your votes in public
session, that carry the appropriations

your committee may be six; if it be
a committee of eleven, the other five
have their hands tied by those six;
when you go Into the house an ap
proprlation may bo carried by only
three or four votes, and if those five

South Carolina Prosperous.
Our State has prospered wonder
fully In the past twelve months. Four
millions of dollars have como in as in
vestments in cotton mills alone, as
will be shown by the reports. The re
port of the secretary of state will show
a large increase in the Investment of
capital in many other enterprises of
various kinds; and tho receipts of his
oflice from charter fees will give some
idea of this era of prosperity upon
which South Carolina has entered.
I am delighted to say that not a
State officer or a county officer in the
entire State has been charged with
being short in his accounts, or with
any conduct unbecoming his position,
so far as has been brought to my
knowledge with the lone exception of
the State Bank Examiner, which case
will be brought more directly to your
All this is gratifying to me, espec
ially in view of the fact that it was
heralded throughout tho country by
certain newspapers that if Blease was
elected the State would be financially
ruined; that the Northern capitalists
would not invest ?heir money here,
and that our people would suffer gen
erally. More Northern capital has
come Into the State under my admin
istration than under that of any other
governor, and the march of material
progress has gone steadily forward."
In his message as to education,
Gov. Blease recommends a levy of one
mill tax on all personal property and
real estate for the free public schools
and that improvements on the state,
colleges be stopped until the common
schools aro provided for. He also
recommends an appropriation for the
Medical College of South Carolina nnd
that it be made a part of the state un
lvorsity and that Clemson college be
changed to Calhoun university.
He recommends the continuation of
tho board of pardons, but at an In
Gov. Blease again called attention
to the Parker mill merger nnd other
trusts, notably the South Carolina
Public Service Corporation, exclusive
franchises granted by cities and
towns and to tax on the state's water
He recommends that the legal rate
of Interest be reduced to six per cent.
He also has something to say about
the Increasing price of farming land
and the sale of land to negroes.
Gov. Blease recommends the aboli
tion of the concealed weapon law or
a revision of It to provide for licenses
for pistol ownership. He also asks
that detectives be required to have a
license to operate In the state.
The governor deals at some length
with editor and reporters expressing
the same views which he is already
known to hold.
Ho recommends the direct election
of Judges by the people, declarinc; that
tho election of judges Is already ac
companied by "log rolling" scheming
and other political Jurgling.
In conclusion the message directed
the attention of the legislators to the
different reports of the state officers.
