devoted to the interea r tf the city of Columbia and the people of Ads I r and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED APRIL 1 1908 Senator L C Nell of this v county was one of the lucky LegislaturTI e lucky by reason of hard work keen foresight of men and meas ures He succeeded In getting three of his bills enacted into law a record of which he and his many friends may justly fee proud The measures areas follows a bill prohibiting the sale of whisky in local option dis tricts by wholesale except tc licensed dealers A bill appro priating money for improve 7 ments of the Asylums andI caring for the inmates and 2 bill creating a health officers school for the State These measures all become laws and r their importance can readily be comprehended The most im portant of the three and viewed by the public is the one control ing the sale of whisky Advo cates of temperance cannot fail to heartily endorse this law for it prevents the manufacturers from dealing out their product to anyone but a licensed dealer and they do not exist in local option territory Senator Nell has proven to be a close student measures and has lalored hard in the performance of his duties It is an easy matter to introduce a bill but it is another proposi 1tionto have it become a law There were near 1000 bills intro duced in the Legislature and not exceeding 50 became laws Sen ator Nell stated that he regarded Iris biil as above mentioned of much more worth to the cause of temperance than the extension of the County Unit Law and in order to secure its passage it was necessary for him to vote for the rule requiring a twothirds ma jority of the Senators to call a measure from the 1 hands of the committee He states that was not only prompted to vote for this rule solely to accomplish the enactment of his measure 4 but to protect the State from r other drastic legislation and that he was for the County Unit Bill i and would have voted for it had ever come to passage The above is the position of Senator Nelly and we take pleasure in giving it that he may be clearly under stood While not of his political iv persuasion yet we believe in giv ing justice to every man The il Republican party may well feel proud of Senator Nell and the people of his district should appreciate his untiring energy that 1 secured the law clearly
