TUfs Trust aad the Tariff. j
It is very fortunate for tbe farmers |
of the United States that the cotton
bagging trust has chosen I he presen t
timeto play Its pranks. It makes 110
difference to the purchaser whether
an iucrease of prices is caused by the
prevention of foreign competition
through a tariff, or the throttling of
home competition by trust. In either
? Tr.r\r,nrv?Jr ic CPf>nrPf5 ! ftllli the

characteristic of a monopoly is that
one man enjoys it and another man
pays for it.
A year ago, when there was free
competition in the manufacture of
bagging, the price was brought down,
through competition, to seven and
eight cents. Then came the "combine,"
and farmers must pay twelve
and fourteen cents for the protection
of "home labor," while they themselves
get no more for their own cotton.
The farmers are justly indignant,
' and they have manage.] to arouse
more excitement and indignation over
fhic mrinnnnlv than has been seen in a
Now the bagging trust will cost the
farmers not more than a million dollars.
On the other hand, the tariff,
which is based on precisely the same
reasoning as the trusts costs the Union
two hundred millions directly and six
or seven hundred millions indirectly.
While the trust raises the price fifty or
a hundred percent, on bagging alone
the tariff raises prices fifty per cent,
on huudreds of articles, on tics, on
gins, on machinery, on fertilizers, on
clothing, 011 Jiedicincs, on 'sugar, on
crockery, and many other articles
needed by the farmers.
If every purchaser could realize not
only that he is paving five cents too
muoh on bagging, "bat also two cents
too much on iron, two cents on sugar,
fifty cents on a hat, two dollars on a
blanket, one hundred dollars on a
steam engine, ten dollars on a suit of
eiothes, and so on, his indignation
would know no bounds, and he would
indeed reverence Cleveland for making
the tariff a leading issue.
Jnat as the farmers are beinjr swin
died by the bagging trust for three
months, so they have been swindled
by the present tariff for twenty-three
years. They can judge of the force of
the argument that they ought to pay
millions a year for protection for the
take of having a few cotton factories
in South Carolina by asking themselves
whether it is worth while to pay five
cents a yard more lor cotton bagging
for the sake of having a little bagging
factory in Charleston, which is in the
Again, the- tariff makes the trusts
possible, by checking the healthy influence
of foreign competition and
making consumers purchase everything
at home regardless of cost. This
enables the producer to ask his owu
price. Nothing is wiser than to encourage
home enterprise when it can
supply wants cheaplv, but to give two
prices for one articlo simply because
it is produced at one's door is to start
out on a steep declivity to bankruptcv.

The C ontest in Xcw York.
New York being the pivotal State
in the Presidential contest, and New
York city the pivotal city of that
State, anything connected with the
Democratic party of the city becomes
a matter of national interest.
The mayoralty election occurs this
year in the city, and the two great
factions of the party, Tammany and
the County Democracy, after several
conferences, have decided to nominate
candidates for the city offices separately.
The County Democracy has renominated
Mayor Hewitt, while Tammany
has placed Hugh J. Grant, the
present city sheriff, in nomination for
the same office.
A n,/,nt;r./irnf MIOTIC (\T1 S
LUOVJllX*^ Vi ?
we suppose) was recently held, which
also nominated Mayor Hewitt. "VV hat
lends interest to the country generally
in this local contest is the effect it may
have upon the national ticket.
It has been held by politicians of
both factions that a straightout fight
ou both sides would have a tendency
to bring out a larger vote than a united
ticket conld command. This seems
quite plausible to outsiders and woald
doubtless do good. If the election of
the mayor is subordinated to the chief
consideration, the election of the President,
then all would be well, but if
the greed for public pap should cause
either faction to make the local contest
the chief issue, then Democratic prospects
would be quite gloomy in the
Tammany and the County Democracy
both, "however, in making their
nominations, nledze their enthusiastic
anil undivided support to Cleveland
and Thnrman, and they both wil]
doubtless roll up a sufficient majority
for Cleveland to insure him a victory
in the State.
The New York Star, a staunch Democratic
paper, says of the action of the
"Oar only anxiety is regarding the
Natioual and State tickets. If they do
- - . no? suffer, we can afford lo regard the
outcome of the local situation with
complacency. If every Democrat will
pledge himself to make the election oi
President and Governor the first consideration,
the local contest may result
in a positive advantage to the party.
The disadvantaged, as we stated
yesterday, the unfavorable impression
it will create throughout the countryLet
it, then, be the pride of Democrats
of every faction to show that all
fears of disadvantage to the National
and State tickets are groundless."
As a matter of history it may be interesting
to know that Hugh J. Grant
ran for mayor in 1884 and was badly
defeated by Wm. IS. Grace, the candidate
of the County Democracy.

The latest idea talked among politicians
and statesmen, outside of the
Presidential contest, is the proposed
annexation of Canada to the United
States. The proposition most considered
is the payment to Great Britain
of the sum of ?300,0*30,000 for this vast
domain. Whether the scheme will
ever amount to anything is quite
doubtful, but it is certain not to become
a fact in the immediate future.
What use Canada could possibly be to
us with its 500,000 square miles of territory
aud 5,000,000 of people has not
yet been explained by those who advocate
its purchase. Already we have
a3 much territory as we can conveniently
handle, "and are pretty well
supplied with population, so much so,
indeed, that the question is being serioc3ly
discussed in all parts of the
country how the rapid increase of
foreigners can be checked.
Yet according to the annexation
scheme we would dump in at one load
5,000,000 foreigners into our body
politic, who having lived under a
monarchy are ignorant of our methods
of government, and who, besides in a
great measure, epeak a difierent language.
They would not be like foreign
immigrants who move among
: our own people and in a measure be
i conic uui uyuiu i
! and parcel of us "while remaining in
their own country among their old
associations. As the Greenville News
suggests, too, what would become of
alf the little knights, baronets and
other wearers of Dominion titles when
they come to this Democratic conn|
1 Senator Sherman and other prominent
Republicads are advocating the
echeme, and it is said that the question
is looming up in the dominion in political
and other circles, and is destined
to dominate all others. The idea
at the same time finds much favor in
i the provinces. Whether the people of
the Dominion favor annexation or not
we think the United States should not
consider the proposition at all. We
have as much as we can well attend to
The Manufacturers' Record says
the remarkable spirit which animates
the South is^ found in the fact that
while trusts &re rampant throughout
the country the only two that have
materially afFectcd the South have
been practically defeated. The first
trust that met with decided and comparatively
successful opposition was
the American couon on trust. ii
young Carolinian, Mr. Oliver, organised
a $o,000,000 company to build
independent oil mills. Within a few
months eight of the best cotton oil
mills ever built were in full operation
and the monopoly was practically
broken. The second trust tackled by
the enterprising South was the "jute
bagging trust." Owing to the exigencies
of the season this trust has
not. been completely demolished, but
if a little more time had been given it
would have met the fate of its twin
brother, the cotton oil trust. Substitutes
even better than jute bagging
have been found and are now manufactured
in New Orleans and Wilmington.
The former manufactures baggingfrom
cotton and the latter from
pine straw, both of which meet all the J
requiremeuts, and are destined to
supplant jnte bagging altogether.
The Record says it" can not recall the
defeat of any trust in any other section
of the country except the South, and
thinks that in those facts can be seen
the spirit of energy and enterprise
which is building up the South.
Truly, the South is at work audits
people are desperately in earnest, so
trusts had better shun this section, as
the Record says.
Ix speaking of the circumstance
tnat a large part 01 tac conege professors
of the country, who have given
the subject life-long study, are in favor
of tariff reduction and the economic
principles advocated by the Democratic
party, the New York Post says:
Six of the professors of the Wesleyan
University at Middle town, Ct.,
most, if not all of whom have been
Republicans, have aunounced their
intention of voting for Cleveland this
time. We believe the right of professors
at universities to vote any
ticket but the Republican has long
been questioned by high-tariff doctors
oecause proffessors, being "theorists"
merely, and unacquainted with praotical
business, are unfit to change their
party allegiance; becausc it is wicked
to vote any but the Republican ticket,
and therefore a pernicious esample to
the youths they have in charge; and
because it is ungrateful to the various
high-tariff men and manufacturers
who have at various times given
donations to universities or founded
theia. The conduct of these Wesley an
professors will therefore cause pain
and horror in many a counting-room,
and will cause many a "ciear-minded
business man" to ask'himself: "What is
the use of colleges, anyhow?" We can
suggest no remedy except a university
test, like the subscription to the Thirty-nine
Articles, which used to be exacted
at Oxford and Cambridge. Give
no professorship to any man who is
not prepared to sign adhesion to the
present tariff and promise to teach it in
his lecture-room and his own family,
without criticism or revision.
The price of flour has risen rapidly
during the past week owing to wild
speculations in wheat at Chicago.
September wheat sold as high as two
, dollars a bushel. It was the result of
a corner effected by a man named
Hutchinson, who is said to have, made
S6.000.000 bv the deal. The effect of
. this gigantic gambling is that consum.
ers all over the conutry have to pay
about twenty-five per cent, tor the
. siaff of life, while the producers of
wheat do not get any^benefit from it.
How long will oar national law-mak1
ers play at politics and allow snch
wrongs to ran riot in the land?
Only five weeks between this and
the election, and the campaign grows
exceedingly lively and interesting.
The Democrats are qaite confident.of
their ability to carry the same States
for Cleveland that "voted for him in
1884 and have some hopes of other
States. The Republicans appear to be
equally confident of their ability to
elect Harrison. The contest will be
very close, bat there is more than a
probability of Democratic success.
The lady who ran for school commissioner
in Union county at the pri*

school commissioner, even were she
to receive a majority of the lawful
votes, the absurdity of her position is
even more manifest than her inconsistency.
The effect of the whole
business is extremely ridiculous.
Now that the State Board of Examiners

The town of Rictecway enjoys the
the distinction of being: the second
place in the county in point of size and
importance, the first place being- held
by Wiunsboro, which has the advantage
of being the county seat, and
situated in the centre of the county.
Ridgeway is locatcd on the (J. (J. &
A. R. R., "twenty-five miles Horth of
Columbia, and twelve miles south of
Winnsboro, and occupies the highest
point on the ridge dividing the waterrce
and Broad Rivers, and is also the
highest point on the C. C. & A. R. R.
south of Rock Hill, being 600 feet
above the level ot the sea. When the
course of the railroad which runs
through the town was first being discussed,
two routes were proposed from
Columbia to Chester. The one advocated
by Mr. Wm. Lyles, of Fairfield, i
and Mr. Sainl, McAlilly, of Chester,
| and the other by Mr. Edward G-.
j Palraor, of Ridgeway, who was afterwards
elected president Mr. Lyles'
route was pretty much that followed
afterwards by the Columbia & Greenville
Railroad as far as Alston, thence
across to Chester. Mr. Palmers
route was adopted and is the present
bed of the road. This latter route
was called the "ridge route" or "ridge
wav," and this name was given the
station. Mr. McAlilly jocularly called
it the "Palmer ginhouse route," as it
placed a shipping station within two
miles of Mr. Falraers gmaouse. Air.
Palmer's choice of this route, however,
lay in the fact that it ran up the back
of the ridge, and crossed only one
stream between Columbia and Chester,
the wisdom of which has been fullysustained
bv the experience of the
Greenville road with the annual
freshets aud washouts.

the river road, passing throngM^?
Bookter neighborhood, and \ tnen
through the Ashford neighborhood to
Winnsboro. This was several utiles
east of the Columbia & Greenviut?
route. No one ever entertained
tainea the idea of a line "from Columbia
to Chester," or of giving Winns
boro the go-by. l well remeinoer uiu
indignation caused me when a boy at
school by the report that the ridge and
sand hill route had been adopted.
The distance by an air line between
Winnsboro and Columbia was said to
be 23 miles, and the addition of 13
miles to that seemed very unwise, to
say the least. The stage road was 29
miles, and the seven additional miles
certainly increased the cost more than
the extra trestleing and grading upon
the short route would have done. The
excess of time and money lost by nil
the travelers on the road and th-j increased
wear and tear on machinery
and track caused by the crooks (not
counting the losa from diminished
business resulting from lengthening
the road) if calculated to (his time
would amount to much more than
enough to build a straight road from
Winnsboro to Columbia.
I never doubted but that the laying
out the present route was a piece of
favoritism like bending the S. C. R.
R. out of its line to please the Fork
planters, which has been an injury to
Columbia and Charleston and the State
generally from that day to this. The
shortest practicable line is always the
best, though 1 remember that some of
the engineers of the C. &S. C. R. R., to
allay the astonishment caused by the
adoption of the ridge and sandhill
rote, advanced the idea that the art of
tracklaying had been brought to snch
perfection that a train could run with
more speed and safety on a crooked
than a straight road/
