Columbia. January 26. -The General
Assembly has passtd through the
second week of the present session.
While up to the present time very few
Bills have reached a third reading. a
majority of the most important meas
ures to come up have already been pre
sented and referred to the proper com
mittees. Each day the number of new
Bills is increasing and the calendar as
sumes larger proportions.
The State's tribute to the memory of
her most illustrious son was given on
Friday, when the Hampton memorial
exercises were held in the hall of the
House of Representatives. The orator
of the day was General M. C. Butler,
a distinguished and (lose companion of
H Iampt on in thet t roubdouis times of war
and also in the great work of redeem
ing the State in 1876. Perhaps no man
in South Carolina is better qualified for
the task of delivering an oration upon
the life, .services and character of
Hampton than General Butler. and the
address was a masterful one, replete
with inte'sting historical facts. and en
hellished with eloquence which thrilled
and swayed the large audience for near
ly an hour.
Imnmediately after the .1int Assembly
was called to order the orator of the
day and his escort were announced.
The party was:

The following resolutions, which had
been prepared by lion. l .eroy F. You
mans, who was Attorney General under
lamipton, were offered by lon. Robert
Aldrich, Senattor from Harwel:
"Wade I lampton is no mior'! On the
II th day of April, in the year of our
L.ord 19N, one of the most illustrious
sons of Sou t I'arolina was gathered to
his fathers, inl a ripe old age, in the
midst of 'that which should accompany
ol age - honor, love, obedience, t roops
of triends.'
In the course of his long and event
ful life he discharged all of the duties
of a citizeu, Ibotlh in war and in peace,
in a manner vorthy of the admiration
of all succeeding ages. I (is achiievem_ents
in thle war bet ween the States, in the
successive gradles of command from colo
niel of the I haimptoni Legion to lieutenant
general in the army of the Con federate
States, will live forever in the pages of
hiistor'y. Shiot andl shell and steel

Following Col. Aldrich former Lieu
tenant Governor Mauldin, of Greenville,
and President of the Senate Sheppard
seconded the resolutions ini a few ap
proprlate remar'ks, andl General Butler,
the orator of the (lay, waLs initrodluced.
General Butler spoke for nearly an
hour. Hie spoke of General Hampton's
character and his high standing in South
Carolina before the war, of his brilliant I
career as a soldier and1 as a statesman<
His concluding sentence is a brief stun-'
muing up of the whole address: "Gen- I
eral Hampton was a great cavalry sol- I
dier, one of the greatest, of modern
times, if not of any period of the
world's history; he was an exemplary
citizen of the loftiest and highest ideals
of duty, devoted to the principles of
constitutional government, a statesman
of sound judgment and wisdown, an in
corruptible gentleman. What more can
or need be said of him?"
The committee on commerce has re
ported the Marshall Child Labor Bill to
the Senate without recommendation.
A majority and minority report was
submitted on the Stanland Bill to pro
hibit the sale of toy pistols, the ma
jority being unfavorable to the Bill.
An unfavorable report has also been sub
mlitted on Mr. Ragsdale's Bill to requre
railroads to give free transportation to
State and county officers traveling on
otlicial business.
The Raysor Compulsory Education
Bill has been made a special order for
A good deal of discussion was pre
c'ipitated in the House on Friday on
Mr. ilaile's Bill to change the number
Af days for road work to four and to
make the commutation tax two dollars.
The matter was postponed to Thursday,
all commutation tax measures being
made a sp'cial order for that (lay.
There was also a lively discussion
.tpon Mr. Holman's Bill providing for
he election of county dispensers by the
eople. By a large vote the enacting
sords were stricken out.
The Bill to prohibit cock fighting
n any shape or form within the State
ias been passed to a third reading.
As will be seen, the important meas

rovide for the prohibition of child

ion, the repeal of the lien law, road
mpr)ovement, distribution of dispensary
arofiits,, the prohibition of cock lighting

MIr. Kibler's Bill in legard to county
uperintendents of education ha. pased
t second reading without opposition. The
Bill pros ides:

Mr. Kibler has introduced a Bill to

Although no action has yet been
:kein, there is considerable- talk upon01
he quest ion of ctreating one or more
ud(icial circuits. It is arguedl on the
)e hand that the expense of special
.ermis of court would be almost suffi
!ienlt to pay the salaries of extra judges
Ln( othler court officials, and that it
you d be mluch more profitable to have
dldit ional circuits rather than so many
ipec ial terms. Those wh 10Oppose any
etion claim that the present machinery
s sullicient andl that the trouble is
'nainly caused by the delay on the part
f attorneys in bringing their cases to
~rial atnd the further delays int the court
ooml after cases are brought to trial.
Still the fact remains that the State

'Tle (leath of Col. Thos0. W. IIlolloway,
which occurred at his home in this
count-ty last. week, is ai dis(titnct loss to
Newberry County andh to South Caro
lina. For matny years Col. I lolloway
was Secretary of the State Agricul
tural and Mechatnical Society, atnd in
this posit ion he did at immense anmount
of work for the society, andl his efforts
played 110 'iean part in making a sue
3ess of each succeeding State Fair. iIe
lad become idlentif'ied wvith these an
itual fair's a5 no0 other manl in South
larolina, and to see him working for
~heir success was just as natural to the
housands who have each year attend(ed
us the sight of thle old1 butildinig it.self.
Col. llollowvay wvas over ttue to his
~ounty andh to his State. lIe was at all
imes ai courteous gentlemanl, andI hlad
he r'esp)ect and esteem of all who know
im. Genial, always considerate of
thers, it was a pleasure to meet him
t any time, ie will be sadly mnissed
jthose whose good fortune it was to
now him.
The Rev. E. 0. Watson, pastor c
Bethol M. E. church, Charleston, an
who is well known and highly esteeme
in Newberry, delivered a sermon o
Sunday morning, upon the subjecl
"Needed 'Revision of Public Sentimen
in South Carolina." The topic upo
which special stress was laid was th
Tillman-Gonzales tragedy, the memory ,i
which is but too fresh among the peopl
of this State. Mr. Watson in commen
ing upon the tragedy, said:
"We need a reform in public senti
ment thi . shall make the taking of hu
man life ior words a crime absolutel
without defence. A reform that sha
recognize that no words of a man to
man justify even personal violencc
Ah, how poor a cause must an
mere words aupear as one look
at a blood-staine( hand and has to bea
the lash of a blood-stained conscience
With this reform fair play will requir
revision of public sentiment concerninf
'free speech.' We are too free o
speech. There is too great readiness t,
indulge in social defamation, commonl
calleo tattling. Men are too quick t
charge others with wrong-doing in busi
ness and in of}icial administ:ation. Pres
and pulpit are often too free with nei
and lip to denounce and abuse. Ni
would not have a muzzled puluit or;
muzzled press, but with a public senti
ment that says: '> words justify per
sonal violence or bloodshed;' fair pla;
demads greater caution in utteranci
and that utterance, however, true an<
necessary, shall be parliamentary, no
to say polite, and shall be all the mor
forceful for being so.
"We need a revision of public senti
ment that shall make the carrying o
weapons in itself acrime, whether thes
weapons weigh four ounces or fou
pounds, whether they measure si
inches or six feet, and whether they b<
concealed or inconcealed. The mer<
fact of a man s being armed should b(
consi(dere(l prima facie evidence of at
intention to commit a crime. Withoul
such sentilent we may add law to la?
upon the .-tatute books to noavail. Witi
such public sentiment men will be led t<
discard the pocket 1)istol as an article 01
dress and, being without weapons, cow
ards (brave men are usually unarmed
will be more cautious and self-controlle(
in speech and action."
"We need a 1evisio0n of public senti
ment that shall m11-ake the carrying o:
weapons in its(l'f a crime." True word
these. There is no more detestabl
habit than the can i ig of concealet
weapols, and there is no other on
thing that leads t o Ial f as many deplor
able crimes. But so long as public sen
timent upholds, or even condones the
habit, so long will concealed weapons h
carried. Legislatures may pass laws
and they may lur'o\'i(e evely conceivabl<
means for their enforcement, but no lav
is going to Ib' enforced unless it i
backed by a healthy public sentiment
We need in this State a public senti
ment that shall ine(quivocally condemi
the car'rying of concealed weapons
Iluman life in Southl ('arolina is becom
inig too eleap.
We do not believe w' in South Caro
lina will ever reach the time referrel
to by Mr. Watson, when we shall hay
a "public sentiment that shall make til
taking of human life for words a criimi
absolutely without defenc , shall recog
nize that no worls of a man to a m:
justify eveun Ipersonal violence,"' how
ev,er' desirable such a state of affair'
might be. But it is a fact that we arn
