Senator Hanna's measure to pension
ex-slaves seems to be meeting with
very general approval in the South.
What motives may be actuating
Hanna is a hard matter to decide. lie
may be bidding for the negro vote in
the next presidential campaign, and
then he may be actuated solely by a
desire for the prosperity of his brother
in black. Be that as it may, a pension
to ex-slaves would be of great benefit
to the South. Here the negroes are
going to stay, and here they are going
to spend their money so long as they
have any to spend. The national gov
ernment is now spending millions of
dollars in pensions, not one cent of
which is coming southward. By all
means let the ex-slaves be pensioned.
It will be gratifying to us of this see
tion to see them made happy it thch
declining years. They were faithful
before the North took it upon itself to
put them in such position that they
would need a pension.
There is only one objection that could
be urged against the measure. It
would put into the young negroes the
notion that they are the special wards
of the government, and that no matter
how worthless, no matter how indigent
they are, they will be taken care of.
That seems to be too much the prevail
ing idea among them now. But we
suppose they can be dealt with. At all
events, we would like very much to see
the pensions to ex-slaves begin to cone
touth vet v soon. The white people of
the South will be benefited. The ex
slaves will not live long enough to be
brought into any great amount of
trouble by it. The ('run nomination
and the Indianola. Miss., postoflice mat
ter. and the recent White louse recep
tion, and other matters are doing the
rising gleneration of negroes so much
hari that a itt" no re will not he felt
by t hem.

good reasons we cannot conceive. Th<

to build good roads or not, and whal
possible objection there can be to that
we canntot see. The bill may conie uj

Child Labor Bill passed in the hrous
and senate both last week, for this Is a
law we have nleedeCd for some time.
Child Labor Bill Has Passed Both Houses- I
Kibler Insurance Bill-Many Matters
of Importance, Som, Relating
to Newberry.
Senator Marshall's Child Labor Bill I
passed its third reading in the House, 1
by a vote of 58 to 44, on Saturday i
morning, and the three years' fight for I
a law prohibiting the labor of children i
in the mills was brought to an end.
The Bill will become law as soon as it I
has received the signature of the Gov
ernor. The debate in the House con
tinued through several night sessions,
and the measure was vigorously op- 1
posed and ably defended. A number of I
amendments were offered, but none of i
them were adopted, the Bill passing (he
House in its original form and as it had
passed the Senate.
Only one Newberry Representative i
toolk part it the debate--Mr. Aull. lie a
'Spoke, as reported in the News and
Courier, in favot of the measure, saying i
he was the only ct,ndidate elected in his
county who favored such legislation.
He was not opposed to the mills and
felt himseif their friend. These chil
dren, however, have rights that are I
supreme. If the Bill passed, then we 1
must have compulsory education. The I
chief thing he wanted to say was that
the main issue was whether or not. it
was injurious to the child and to the
citizenship of the State to work at such
ages and for such long hours. The
simple question was simple to answer,
whether this work will be injurious or
not. If any proof is needed the mill
presidents give it themselves. The
mills themselves claim that they are
now enforcing a twelve-year law b ' re
fusing te employ children under twelve.
A mill pre: ident told him he had taken
the stockholders money to build schools
and libraries. lie did so for the advan
tage of the mills, because it would help
to make the mill operatives more skil
ful. lie stated that he had looked fully
into the '.m'tter and gave facts and
statistics. He said he could bring the
evidence where the parents want to
send their children to school and the
Superintendents deny the children the
right to go to school. lie knew men
who failed on promotion in the mills be
cause of lack of education. As he un
derstood it the mill men themselves
favored this Bill. The mill presidents
themselves admit that child labor is an
evil and that they are ti ying to remedy
the matter.
On the final vote a roll call \ih de
manded. but the detwand was withdrawn.
On the .oV call Mr. Aull voted in favor
of the bill and Mr. Kibler against it.
(The full text of the hill is published
elsewhere in this issue.)

Mr. Pollock's Hill to increase the (is
pensary priofits going to the common
school fund has been r'ecommittedl in
the House. This action generally in
definitely postpones a bill, though it
may not be so in this instance. This
Bill is an import ant mmne,1 ntacio
ipon it has been looked for with a good
leal of interest. It provides that after
he first of May, 1903, that part of the
>rofit made on'liquors sold by the dis
>ensary which goes to the State, or to
he common school fund, shall not be
ess than twelve per cent. nor more
han twenty per cent. It was claimed
)y the advocates of the Bill that such
nerease in the price of dispensary
iquor would not affect at all the profits
eceived by towns and counties and
vould net the school fund something
ike $200,000 a year-and that the liquor
Irinkers could stand the increased
In the discussion of this Bill Mr. Pol
ock created somewhat of a sensation by
uis statement, as reported in the News
mnd Courier, that he had had this propo
rition made to him: "Pollock, do you
vant to make a barrel of money, and
nake it quickly and honestly? Well,
here is a distillery over here at Cam
lon run by a man who hasn't any
iense, and is selling his liquor for al
nost nothing. You buy that distillery,
md you can get all the money you
vant with which to buy it, and you
an sell the product to the State at a
good profit." Mr. Pollock, when asked
f the man who made him that proposi
ion was connected in any way with
he State Dispensary, replied that he

mnybody and would not answer tl"e
