Cash down means prices down.

?Some of the farmers expect to

^days. One gentleman remarked that

it fell ali evening, it looked like we
were goiu^ t? be snowed in.
?The authorities at the Oil Mill
inform u* that the demand for cotton

The mill at this place linds a ready
market for all the meal it can make.
It is said that the great demand for
meal is the case all over the state.
?Mrs. Sadie Iiussell. widow of i>.
E. Russell, formerly of this county,
died in Columbia on the 5tli of February
and her remains were interred

to mourn her loss.
?It is only a few days now till the

; eveiy one will think carefully before
he votes, to discontinue the project.
An abandonment of the enterprise
altogether, in our judgment, will be
a most serious mistake.
?While Mr. Saml. Cathcart, of
Adger, vias leading a colt, which he
had just driven from Winnsboro,
through a gate at his home place, the
animal became frightened and unruly.
In the effort to restrain it, Mr. Cathcart
had his shoulder dislocated. Dr.
J. 0. Buchanan was summoned and
administered to the relief of his
patient who is reported as getting on
?Said a lawyer to us a few days
ago: "I keep my card in your paper

sound philosophy. "When a merchant I

public argues in a war something like
this: Well, that fellow is either

he is indifferent as to -whether hi

Death.-Died on Monday night:,
February 24th, 1890, at the residence
of John W. Smart, Mr. Robert N.
Smart in the 7G year of his age. He
volunteered in Company C. 12th S. C.

War. He leaves a wife and
two children. He was sick only
about twenty-six hours, suffering from
an attack of spasmodic colic, which
caused his death. His remains were
interred on Tuesday at 4 30 o'clock at
Horraah Church in the presence of a
large gathering of friends and neighbors.
Peace to his ashes.
Paid for Guessing.?The Nacs and
Courier, is getting' up a guessing bee
and with its usual liberality is offering
big prizes to the best guessers. The
question guessed at is the number of
bales of cotton of the crop of 1889-90.
The first prize is o tons of fertilizer.
Anybody and everybody is invited to
guess. The only requirement is the
guess shall be recorded on a guess
ballot published in the weekly Xeics
and Courier and accompanied by five
cents in stamps or coin. You may
guess each month and if you are the
best guesser get a prize each month.

It is stated on reliable authority that
there is actually twenty-five dollars iu

of those who have an eye to the ma; rimoiiial
question. The money on hand,

WHAT A FARMER'S WITB THINKS
OF THE SIT17ATIOS.
x read the account of the Farmers'

Being the wife and daughter of a
farmer, I naturally feel jealous of their
honor, and regret that even a feic
should embibe the sentiments of Mr.
Surely the stirring days of'76 have
not been forgotten, now, the services
of those "true and tried" sons of Fairfield
Maj. Woodward and Gen. Bratton.
The idea of charging such lead
ers as these, \vith being subject to ringrule
Farmers, compare our condition
during and since the dark days of
Radicalism, and, for the sake of the
mothers and daughters, beicare how
jou desert the old standard bearers!
I ihiuk Maj. Woodward ought to be
our next Governor. I feel aure that a
majority of the women of Fairfield
would use tneir lnnnence witn iamer,
brother or sweetheart to place the
heltn of State in hi# hands, hunting
Carolina has no son more pairiotic or
worthy of confidence.
LETTER JFR03Z JTO. 3.
Messrs. Editors: I have read your
rrr.nvf nf fhA so-r.alloil mass meetinsr
and must say thai the whole affair
falls far short of what one would expect
from a representative body of
farmers in Fail field whose people hsve
never been second to those of any
County in the State to good breeding,
intelligence, good brotherhood and
patriotism. But I am sure that they
still realize the iinportanoe of good
government, as well as the fact that it
r;an be maintained here only by preserving
the touch of the elbow among
all good men. But I am glad that
only thirty or forty sell-appointed
men constituted this mass meeting. It
were greatly to be hoped that the
actors in this movement should be
thoroughly imbued with a desire to
better the condition of the farmers,
which without doubt is bad in South
Carolina ami is much worse in many
:>thcr Stales. Cut it is palpable to all
Lhat this fuss is made entirely in the
interest of cunning men who seek to
jblam office. The question, then, is,
trill our people be fooled into measures
which if they do not disrupt will
surely weaken the bonds of the- Dtm:ratic
party. Already the Radicals
and Independents are picking their
?ars and listening eagerly to the mutQivtwrs
nf tl?? HJacrrnnfIpfl nnlifir.tanS
The good people of South Carolina
sertainly cannot afford to quarrel, and
my steps taken to forestall the action
jf the regular Democratic organiza:ion
of the State should be frowned
iown by ai! sober-minded people who
ralue good government more than
hev do the success of scheming officeseekers.
A VOICE FKOJI HE Alt CREEK.
Messrs. Editors: Where did they
jome from anyhow? There warn't
my from these diggins, in fact we
ladn't heard that Boss Lemon and
selah Morrison bad took charge of the
nachine. We were a waiting for
Shanty Brice to call us np as he was
;he President of the Farmers' Association
and wc knowed his head was
evel and that he warn't likely to be
operated on by visiting statesmen, so
lot hearing from him we concluded
he jig was np and didn't turn out.
But the Boss was there, and Mr.
Selah Morrison was there, and I am
lot badly disappointed after all,
specially since I read Mr. Morrison's
snnftph I'm cftiTV T WJlVTl't fhfirfl
:o hear him, for I heard a feller say
hat he ju$t rolled up his breeches legs
lollered Selah! and waded right in
ind immediently there was a moving
jf waters and a passage was opened
-ight np to the Columbia Convention.
[ am glad that convention took place,
Cor this, Selah, Mr. Morrison and the
Boss might have continued to have
vent their liffhts under the Deck meas
t~ o r m.
ire, the one af" Shady Grove and the
:>ther at Jackson's Creek, as it is, being
?e only two speakers for the nomination
tbev are going to give a new deal
ill around, Selah! and Mr. Morrison
*re going to mafct the lawyer learn us
bow to sue and be sued, issue writs
ind slap damicusse?, applv .for habeas
carcass and all sicb. Selah! He's
roing to force the Doctors to sh?w us
Eiow to mix jolup and calimy and howto
work on sickly wimrain and puny
children. Selah! He's going to circumnavigate
the State House ring
with a bigger ring, Selah! and he's
ifoing to make 'em tell us poor farm
2rs as walk# a plow line lengtn Deninu
mules, Selah! all" they knows about
running government and alt sicli.
Selah! He's gonig to do better than
ill this, he's going to stop that infernal
jourt house ring, including ths judsre,
Selah! frotn sending out bench warrants
against farmers, and I suppose
the Boss is going to help him, altho' I
beard he was powerful perticular and
3idn't seem inclined to say what he
was ^oing to do. This is all exactly
right andwish ?em good luck, but they
had better hew to this line and 'low us
Democrats to tend to the nominating
of our own officers. There's going to
be a shaking of dry bones before long,
anil I has heard there was some Legislature
timber and some Sheriff material
and County Commissioner stock
aboard, f-o look <>Hf. boys, and keep
your heads level, visiting statesmen
didn't save Billy Mahone altho' they
was sent out by the President of the
United Slates. ' tike not.
LIS AVISO THE COUXTY.
' Messrs Editors: The Fairfield colony
iu Columbia is assuming large proportions.
That city seems to be a place

for many years have failed to tnake a
living can go and make a success.
Though it is lamentable that it is hard
for $ome to tnnke a living in Fairfield
n:id in Wiim-boro it is gratifying that
a condition f-hou'd arise in a neighboring
city that meets the varying
capacities of these pnople and enables
them to make an honest living. This
shows the great iniportas.ee of diver
SUV 01 UCClipailUJl lKJ UUUUiC 4 WUil'i;
to advance in wealth and population.
Without looking into all the causes ol
renewed life in Columbia that enables
it to >uppot t a rapidly inerea.-ing population,
it is enough to my that aflei
the Hiuiuln? given by the educational
advantage afforded there and only
obtained after a hard stiuggle against
the old fogies, the cjnal has given i
great impetus to tfce building up of th<
\ . v
city. But the greatest of all factor8
are the railroads that have centred
there and are now radiating in seven
But Chester, twenty-eight miles
north, a town in a county certainly
not as rir.h natnrallv as Fairfield, is I
- ? J ?' '
now becoming a railroad centre, having
outlets by rail in six directions.
That County, being alive to the value
of railroads, is about to subscribe
another hundred thousand dollars to
the Atlantic, Asheville and Knoxville
Railroad, and then Chester will be
more of a railroad centre thau any
place in the State. The magnet will
soon begin to act and the npper part
of Fairfield will be drained to make
population for Chester.
Will Fairfield still allow its people
to be absorbed by neighboring towns,
or will something be done to keep our
people at home and build up our
ivaetc places? Better Columbia and
Chester than Arkansas; but shall we
permit our people to go anywhere?
That is the question. Who among
our people who are raising boys and
girls eipect them to settle here? I
don't know any. The rule is to spend
your money and your life in raising
children, and as soon as the boy6
grow np, and the girls marry, goodbye
to old Fairfield. Off they are to
some place where the people arc not
all asleep. wide-awake.
FEATURES OF THE LATE MASS
A Few Declare the Voice of Many?Very

Messrs. Editors: Referring to some
of fhe peculiar features ot the late

to note the following: From
Longtown there was one representative;
from Bear Creek none; from
Biythewood none; from Cedar Creek
two or three; from Mossy Dale two or
three; from Horeb one; from Jenkinsviile
none; from Monticello two; from
Feasterville none; from Greenbrier
three or four; from Oakland none;
from Ridge way three or four. And
it was clearly indicated that the sentiment
from Gladden's Grove aud from
Albion was opposed to March nominations.
Whence came those thirty-nine
representative farmers who by their
unpledged and revolutionary ideas
propose to shape the destinies of the

of this County and inflict a stab upon
Democracy, which it will take yeariof
patient nursing to heal? Was this meeting
packed? Was there a ring? I take
the cue from Mr. Morrisou, their champion,
accept his public statement that
he intended a ring. Now it is not my
purpose to reflect upon any citizen
who attended the meeting; they came
as good citizens, as they had a right to
do, and I commend their pluck and
promptness and would be glad if our
people generally would imitate tneir
example by attending. I like a man
\rho has the courage of his convictions
and will cotne out and fight for them.
But it is also true that 110 suap judgment
should be taken, no party verdict
rendered when the issues are so
grave. It cannot b? denied that there
was a want of that fairnes?, equity,
forbearauce and politeness which have
heretofore characterized the proceedings
of our farmers. In view, therefore,
of all these things, would it not

which would be more represented

ascertaining the views of our people.
I do not propose that the delegation
shall be changed at all, but it does
seem to me that it would strengthen
the hands of onr delegates to know
thSt they represented a majority,
and at the same time should they
prove to be in a minority as to nominations

There is no reason why Mr. Meares'
resolution about submitting to the
arbitrament of the regular Democratic
Convention in June should amount to
anything more than the resolution
unanimously adopted in the Farmers'
Convention two years ago declaring
that politics were utterly foreign to

keep down dissension* and bolt# is by
pursuing a wise, conservative and
above all au open, frank course in all
oar dealings. Once the whirlwind is
sown who is to restrain it? The
breach in our ranks is very small and
don't amount to a row of pins, but
insist upon this new departure, this
violation of the 8tii Article of our
Constitution without which we solemnly

righteous bowl of indignation which
can only be prevented from destroying
the Democratic party bv the undemocratic

Q. D. "V
Takes Issue With Maj. Woodward. !
Messrs. Editors: In jour issue of
March 6th I read with a deal of amusement
the commuDicatiou "A few de-.
clare the voice of many etc." by Maj.
The learned Senator seems to wax ;
wrathy beneath the burden of his late j
defeat, at least if his "tale of woe"
carries with it any truth whatever,
that one Mirely looms tip in brighter
relief than any other. Maj. Woodward,
as usual, without making any
argument as to facts, belchss forth a
most unmerciful tirade against all who
dare oppose bira and his dictatory
ideas. lie sees fit to brand those participating
in the Mass Meeting, as
revolutionists, assassins of Democracy,
would-be-inaugurators of Independentisra,
and various other vituperations
either in substauce or in fact, which
' 1 ' i J l
would De as useless ana lioiiJicusumi iur
me to try to enumerate as it
was for the Senator to have ever so
unjustly showered upon us. Being a
member of the meeting I indignantly
repudiate any such notions as those
attributed by Maj. Woodward, but on
the contrary I dare say that the other
farmers present "it t-hey knew themselves"
felt as though their "hearts
were as full of patriotism" a* that of
their esteemed representative. However,
we will not be so jyrcsumpticc as
proclaim ourselves patriots and the
like, we claim no honor for what has
been done?'twas our duty. We were
prompted by no greed for office, just
whether or hoi the name motives inspired
Senator Woodward, let the people
of Fairfield Conntv surmiae, for
'tis not hit purpose or tnv intention to
here throw out any insinuations whatsoever.
Of course, I have iny opinions
about the matter, so alss have a
vast number of this county.
" Was this meeting packed?" Yes,
Senator, most positively, if by packed
you mean opposition to your measures
and tyranical ideas.
41 Was there a ring?" No, thanks to
God, but not yourself, thei? was not. :
We notice further iu this peculiarly
ridiculous piece the following: "It is
not my purpose lo reflect upon any
citizen who attended the meeting, they
came as good citizens, as they had a
right to do, and I commend their
pluck and promptness and would be
- - ? - 11 u
glad it our people generally wouiu
immitate their example. I like a man
wh:> has the courage of his convictions
The above in itself is all very nice,
but read further and you will find that
these self-same men, who were but a
few moments before the subjects of
his admiration and praise, turn suddenly
into revolutionists, demagogues,
and perjurers, for 'twould be naught
else but perjury were we to forget our
pledge as set forth in Mr. Meares' resolutions,
and our votes thereon.
The Senator further charges a lack
of equity, forbearance, and politeness
in the meeting. We can recall none,
save perhaps when he, himself, very
impolitely arose to leave the court
room. Now, fellow-citizens, Maj.
Woodward harps at length upon the
small attendance, surely he cannot regret
this fact more than we. Everyone
of the 1500 honest voters of this
County should have been present if
possible, and given their views. Let
the Shell's address be discussed far and
near by its enemies as well as its advo-~~

of attacks, honest and dishonest, honorable
and dishonorable?its opponents
have not refuted a single charge,
but have sought to destroy its effect
by questioning its Democracy, when
no one doubts that our party divisions,
acrimonious though they may be,
cease at Democracy 's edge.
And if these things, it telli us of, be
true, then we are not only ripe but
rotting for want of a change.

TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
Whereas, God, in his infinite wis.
dom, has seen proper to reunve from
our midst our esteemed and worthy
brother, II. E. Hood, v?e feel deeply the
loss of our brother, he being one cf
our faithful members. Though he
was in feeble health several mouths
lie was a patient and uncomplaining |
sufferer; he was gentle and kind in
his dealings, but, alas! he is gone; we
mourn the denth of our brother, but
not like those! that have no hope, for
while his body rests in the silent grave
we have a reasonable'hope that hie
spirit is in the beautiful home of the
soul where sickness and sorrow, pain1
and death arc felt and feared no more;
ard we trust he is now feasting on the
beatitudes and glories of the heavenly
world: therefore, be it resolved:
1 That vre. the members of BIythe
wood Frriaers' and Laborers' Union,
Mo. 141, do sincerely lament the departure
of one of our number, and
endeared to as by his uniform good
deportment a id his kind and gentle
2"^That in his death the Alliance has
lost "a worthy member and the community
a good citizen.
3. That.as a mark of respect to the
memory of our deceased brother there
be left a blank page in our minute
4. That we deeply sympathize with
his relatives in their bereavement and
5. That these vesolutions be sent to
the Winusboro News and Herald to
be published and that a copy be sent
to bis family.
