A Small Crowd ini Towvn. -Only Twvo Sales Made. Yesterday was Salesday and it was a damp, drizzly (lay-a veritable ground hog day, one on which the little animal could crawl out and remain throughout the day unmostedl by !his own shadowv -said to be a sure sign of an early sp)ring and mild weather. There were only two sales made, one by the Master in the case of Wheeler vs. Wheat, a house and lot in the tow~ a of Prosperity to D. H. Wheeler for $050.

Both Houses of the General Assembly Go In Some Very Important Work Last Week. Columbia, February 2. --A great dea of work, and some of very great im portance, was done in the Legislatur last week. The compulsory education, child labor and biennial sessions measures came ul for final action in the Senate, and eacl passed a third reading and will go t< the House. THE CHILD LABOR BILL. ' Mr. Marshall's Child Labor Bill cam( up for a final reading on Thursday. II was fully and freely discussed, and sev eral amendments were offered. The amendments, however, were indefinitely postponed, and the Bill passed in itt original form. The vote stood 24 to 1H as follows: Those voting in the affirmative were: Messrs. Blake, Brice, Brown, Davis, Forrest, Gaines, Hprdin, Hay, He>d, Hydrick, Manning, Marshall, McCall, McDermott, McIver, Mower, Peurifoy, Ragsdale, G. W., Raysor, Sharpe, Shep pard, Talbird, von Kolnitz, Warren Total 24. Those voting the negative were: Messrs. Aldrich, Butler, Cat penter, Dennis, Douglass, Herndon, Hough, Johnson, McLeod, Ragsdale, J. W., Stackhouse, Stanland, Walker -Total 13. THE BII..NNIAt., SESSIONS BILL. Mr. Raysor's Bill providing for bien nial sessions of the General Assembly was also given a third reading in the Senate and sent to the House on Thurs day. The vote stood 31 in favor, and 6 opposed. THE COMPULSORY EDUCATION BILL. Mr. Raysor's Compulsoiy Education Bill was vigorously opposed and was amended in several very important par ticulars. N r. Raysor ably defended his measure, and made one of the best speeches of the session. The following synopsis was published by The State: "Mr. Raysor said that the matter had been before the public a long time and had been discussed in all its phases. It had the endorsement of all the lead ing educators of the conntry not only in this State but elsewhere and in addition to this the Gove) nor and the Supet in tendent of Educati'n had eainestly pressed it upon the General Assembly. The most abiding good that can come to a people is the uplifting of the masses. Conditions in the State are rapidly changing, competition is becoming sharper every day and it is the duty of the State to do all in its power to im prove the mental as well as the physi cal well being of her people. The chil dren of today are the material out of which our future statesmen are made, who in aiter years will come into these legislative halls to enact laws for the government of our people. "The argument of paternalism has nothing to (10 with the fulfillment of the conditions in this proposed mneas ure. "It is a matter of record that- no State wvhich has ever enacted a comp)ul sory education law has ever rep)ealed it. IIeo drew a comparison between the States of South Carolina and Massa chusetts wvhere the law had been en forced for a number of years. He spoke of Germany and pointedl to her as the leader of all nations, today the strong est commercial competitor of the United States. "In South Carolina there are 95,C30 white children and the statistics show that only 58 per1 cent. of them attend1 the schools and 25 per' cent. go to school only two wveeks in the year. "The great question now is to arouse the p)arents and make them take advan tage of the op)portunities which the State has given to aid them in the (is charge of their God given obligations. The Bill is intended to represent the rights of the child. The State under takes to (defend his physical condlition and it is nothing but right that his men tal condition be also cared for if we expecct to take our pr1oper places among the sisterhood of States. The constitu tional convention, he said, fixed a tax of three mills uplonl our 1peole whether they be parents or not and undler the law we have an edlucational qualifica tion for voting. As to the negro, he is hero and here to stay. No law is nec essarry to comp)el him to go to school. Ihis p)arents are willing to make any sacrifice to sendl him and will (10 s0 even if they have to steal from their em p)loyers to buy books and pay contin gent expenses. It is the white pecople who are indifferent and he' believes if necessary the strong arm of the law should be0 used( to comp)el them to take adlvantage of the opportunities extend ed." The Bill as amended andl sent to the I louse is in substance as follows: 'Section 1. That it shall be unlawful for any person or guardian living ir this State to neglect or refuse to cause or compel any p)ers'on or persons whc are or- may be0 under their control as their children or wvards, to attendl and comply with the rules of some one or more public or private school or schools, for a term of eight weeks or more, (luring each successive year from the time saidl childlren or ward~(s are eight years 01ld until they are 12 years old, inclusive, unless they may 1)e prevente( by illness or reside more than two milem from a school house, or by reason o1 already being profic ient from attending 1such p)uhlic or private schools, and pr~o vie hti uhcs they shall b< school district in wvhich said childlren o1 failure to attend such public or private school or schools. t Sec. 2. That any person or persons violating this act shall be subject to a fine of not less than five dollars, nor more than twenty dollars for each and I every offense. Said fine shall be im posed by any coui t of justice having jurisdiction on sufficient evidence of the same being furnished by two or more creditable witnesses, and all fines so collected shall be placed hi the school fund of the school district in which the fines are collected: Provided, that no prosecution shall be instituted under this act except upon the affidavit of one of the trustees of the school dis trict in which the offending parent or guardian resides, and such affidavit may be made on information and be lief. TIlB COMMUTATION TAX. The road law has received considera ble attention from the House, and the House has passed a Bill giving the County Commissioners of each county the authority to fix the commutation tax, provided it shall not be less than $1.00 nor more than $3.00, or not less than three (lays nor more than eight days, work upon the roads. TIlE LIEN LAW. The usual fight for i.he repeal of the lien law came up in the House on Fri day. The Bill providing for the repeal of certain sections was indefinitely I.>st poned, and the lien law continues to af flict the country. The House has passed the Bill in creasing Winthrop College scholarship from $44 to $100, and has killed Mr. Hinton's Bill to donate all dispensary profits to the school fund. NEW TAX LAW. Following are the main features of a Bill which has passed the Senate fixing the penalty to be added to delinquent taxes: That all Stat2 and county taxes and all taxes collected, when State and county taxes are collected, shall be due and payable from the 15th day of Octo ber, to and including the 31st day of December of each and evei y year, and if su':h taxes and assessments are not paid on or before said time, a penalty of five p r centum thereon shall be added by the County Auditor on the county duplicate and collected by the County Treasurers and if the said taxes and assessments and penalties are not paid on or befo. e the 31st (lay of March next thereafter, the said County Treas urer shall issue his tax execution for the said taxes and penalties, against the defaulting taxpayer according to law. Mr. Stanland's Bill prohibiting the sale of the Oy pistols which caused so many deaths among the children of the State during the C:ristmas holidays has also passed the Senate. TIME FOR I'AYING TAXES. Senator 1lydrick has introduced a Joint Resolution extending the time for paying taxes without penalty now due and unpaid until the 31st day of March, 1903. In both I-ouses on Saturday p)urely local matters affecting only certain com munities, and wvhich had practically no opposition, consumed( the greater p)art of the day, and the calendar wvas very much cleared. The Senate adjourned to meat Trues day, the House tonight at 8 o'clock. Today being saleday, the members wanted to be at honme. Mr, Meyer In Charlestoii. Mr. IHenry A. Meyer came from Newberry, wvhere he is engeged in business, to be present at the German Friendly Society anniversary celebra tion. Hie is an old1 and a worthy mem ber of that society. Mr'. Meyer contin ues to claim Charleston as his home, although he likes Newberry andu intends to remain there, lie sp)oke in the high est terms of the many kind attentions shown him by the good andl generous people of that city. Mr. Meyer is a sterling citizen, intelligent and enter taining and p)opuhir with all classes. - News and Courier.
