CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS.

S. 129 (H. 164).—Mr. Fred Williams, for the Committee on Federal Relations, offers the following resolutions, and asks for its immediate consideration. This Resolution is unanimously endorsed by the Committee on Federal Relations.

14-S. J.-(500)

Whereas, The present civilization of the white race has been achieved without the assistance of the negro race.

The negro race has made no advancement only as he comes in contact with the other human races. His presence in the United States is because of his not having a government of his own in Africa sufficiently strong to protect its subjects, the reason for which is his weakness. The people of these United States have advanced the negro further than any other nation, having taught him the most extensive language on the globe, the use of tools, the wearing of clothing, and above all, the Christian religion. In return for all these advantages he has given the people of these United States only anxiety, strife, bloodshed and the hookworm. So long as he has the ballot he will be a menace to the civilization of America. The ballot was given to him without his fitness, or his asking for it, and given him at a time when these United States were riven asunder by strife, prejudice, malice, hatred, anger and revenge; therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of South Carolina, the Senate concurring:

(1st) That the Congress of the United States be and are hereby asked to immediately take action for the repeal of the fifteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

(20) That copies of these resolutions be printed and forwarded to each of our Senators and Representatives in Congress.

Ordered for consideration tomorrow.
S. 130 (H. 200.—Mr. Kibler).-A Concurrent Resolution:

Be it Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring, That a committee, consisting of three members from the House of Representatives and three from the Senate, be appointed by the presiding officers of the two Houses for the purpose of ascertaining what is necessary to be done in order to continue the building and other improvements at the State Hospital for the Insane, said committee to report by Bill or otherwise by February 1, 1913.

On immediate consideration, the Concurrent Resolution was adopted and ordered returned to the House with concurrence.

S. 136 (H. 173.-Mr. Rembert).-A Concurrent Resolution:

Whereas, Senator Tillman, in a letter addressed to the General Assembly, in speaking of B. L. Abney, division counsel of the Southern Railway, says: "He is the real octopus which strangles the Legislature and persuades it to do his bidding," and further in said letter says: "But Ben Abney and the Southern Railway attorneys in the Legislature have been too venal and corrupt to protect the people against the railroads." And,

Whereas, It would be inconceivable that our senior Senator would make such a bold and daring charge of corruption among the Representatives of the people of the State who have so long honored him without having proof of the justice of his charges; and,

Whereas, If he has the proof it is right that the people of this State should know how they have been betrayed by their Representatives; now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring, That Senator B. R. Tillman be and is hereby called upon to produce the evidence in support of his charges of corruption in this legislative body.

Ordered for consideration tomorrow.
