WINNSBORO, S. C.
Wednesday, Jan. 18, 1905.
It will be well to start the
matter of raising more home sup
plies this year than formerly by
sowing oats as soon as possible.
It often happens that the spring
- . crop of grain does better than
that sown in the fall and this
might be the case this time.
Even should the experiment prove
a failure, the farmer would only
be out his seed, as the land would
then be in partial readiness for
some other crop.
Governor Heyward has given
out an interview in which he
positively states that his political
life will end with his second term
as governor. This announcemet
will be quite a surprise to the
people of the state, as it had been
confidently expected that he
would enter the race for the
senate sooner or later. Should he
withdraw from politics at the
time that he suggests with the
same degree of popularity that he
now enjoys, he need have no re
grets for having entered the
The high price 'of mules and
labor and of all farm supplies is
going to make the raising of
cotton at six or seven cents a
very much more difficult problem
than it was when these necessi
.ties were uearer in keeping with
the price of the South's staple
crop. In making preparation for
this year's crop, it will be well to
bear this very important fact in
mind by planting less cotton so
as to make it bring a better price
and by raising more home sup
plies for which the money for
cotton will not have to be spent.
With economy in planning and
with . close attention to their
farming intereste the people of
the South can be greatly profited
by their lack of wisdom in going
wild over cotton the past year.
In addition to making provis
ion for the enlargement of the
court house and the building of a
new jail on a new site, .which
matter .we understand is now
being seriously considered by the
.members of the- Fairfeld 'delega-~
tion, there is. another very im
portamnt matter for these gentle
men to face seriously. While the
repoi-ts of the countv~ treasurer
are.no longer published to show
the- financial condition of the
county'(an effort at econmoy that
waanot wise as experience has
p roven in those counties which
have tried it), yet it is a matter
of fact that the county is badly
in debt and is getting more s~o
each year. The total yearly in
come of the county is not suffi
cient to meet i.ts running ex
penses. At present the county is
borrowing $7,400 from the sinking
fuind~of.the state at tLe rate of 5
per cent, making the interest on
the same -$370 each year. Then
there Are claims discounted each
year to :the amount of at least
$15,000 and sometimes $20,000.
A simhplecalculation shows that
the Tuadiint of interest* that the
conf pags'yaarly in this way,
the, ",dicont rate being ,7 per
cent, is from $1,050 to $1,400.
For several years the delegation
has been asked by the board of
coanty commisioners to increase
the tax levy one-half mill so as
to get the county on a cash basis
.This same request has been made
again, and it: should be heeded.
There is no wisdo-n in making
the levy so small that an amount
sufficient for raising the curreDt
expenses of the county can not
be raised. A. continuation of this
policy makes it dead certain that
the county will get deever and
deeper into debt. With the
additional half mill levy, more
thaji $1,800 would be raised each
year and there would be a
smiall amount to apply to reducing
the county's indebtedness. There
should be no objection to taking
this step. The only tro uble with
it is the amount of increase or levy
asked for by the commissioners
is toe small. It will take too long
to reduce the county's indebted
ness in this way. The additioal
levy should be made at least a
mill which would make it possi
ble for the county to get on a
caish bssin five years. At the
end of that short- period it would
be possible not only to cut off
thie additional One mill levy that
would be required in getting the
county on a cash basis, but it
would be easily possible to make
a decrease in the present levy,i
for it must be borne in mind that
a considerable part .of the coun
ty's expenses at present is -for
paying interest and discount. It
is not difficult to determine what
is the wise step to be pursued in ,
the matter of the county's fi
nances. Nothing short of the I
3eroic treatment suggested will a
bring permanent relief. C
(Continued from page one.)l r
bers of the legislature come face
to face with him.
President Snyder of Wofford
College in response to the toast,
"The Colleges of South Caro
lina," fully sustained his record
as a ready speaker, speaking in
no uncertain sounds as to the
friendly relation that all the col
leges of the state bear to the
South Carolina College. Gov
ernor Heyward also was most
happy in his iesponse to the
toast, "South Carolina," as was
also Mr. Moise, the representa
tive for the alumni.
It was a striking fact that so
many of the colleges and univer
sities were represented by sons
of South Carolina: -Chancellor
Wiggins of the University of the
South, President Venable of the
University of North Carolina,
Dr. J. Mark Baldwin, the very
distinguished psychologist of
Johns Hopkins University, all
being natives of this state. With
such representatives among the
educational workers of the coun
try as these aro South Carolina
has no reason to be ashamed of
what she has been doing in the
matter of higher education.
There was no incident of this
Centennial occasion that was more
touching than the uuveiling of
the portrait of the late beloved
Prof. Means Davis, who always
took the greatest interest in
everything that pertained to the
South Carolina College, an' espe
cially was he interested in the
details of the Centennial. There
was lacking no evidence among
those who had sat at his feet
that he was a great favorite with
them. He was their friend, and
in his death they feel they have
lost one who sympathized with
them in,all tho struggles incident
to college life. The spokesman
for the alumni in piesenting this
portrait to the college was Mr.
J. J. Swearingen of Cedar Springs
Institute, who though totally
blind made great- distinction for
himself by going through the
South Carolina College,- taking
the full course and bearing off the
honors of the class.
It was a striking coincidence
that the speakers that i-epresent
ed the-two literary societies on
Monday evening were both from
Chester, the representative of the
Clarisophic being Hon. William
A. Barber of New York and of
the Euphradian Judge Hudson -of
Bennettsville,. who a few hours
before had 'been unanimously'
ro ninated by. the citizens of his
county to take the place in the
senate, made vacant by t1'e death
of Senator McCall, an honor to a
distinguished son of the state
that reflects credit upon the
county- that did the handsome
act. This distinction that comes
to our sister county is all the
more emphasized when it is
borne in mind that when in the
early history of the college it
became necessary for the Philo
mathic Idterary society to be
divided so as to accommodate
the increasing number of stu
dents, the division was made by ~
selecting the two Lowry broth
mrsa from Chester to draw the
members for the new societies,
this selection to be indicative of
the fraternal feeling that should I
continue to exist between the
members. General Bairber in a
