THE REPEAL OF THE LIEN LAW.
A correspondent of the Southern
Farmer and Horticulturist revives the
old question: Tkc Repeal of the Lien
law. Erery candidate for the legislature
for the last ten or fifteen years
has taken this as one of his subject! in
the county campaign. The Farmer
snd Horticulturist agrees with its
and nnfs its Doints so

well that they are reproduced. It
We agree most heartily with-oar
correspondent as to the effect of the
lien law in retarding the progress of
There was a time when some such
law seemed necessary to eiable tho
land owners of the State to procure
the capital necessary to utiliz3 their
lands: bat, from the beginning, it has
proved rcaree to the agricultural interests
by inducing wild-cat firming
h-r mwiv who knew nothing of the
business, and having nothing to lose if
they failed, embarked in it as a reckless
gambler enters a game of cards.
It has always seemed to us unbusinesslike
to borrow or lend money upon a
collateral which has no existence at
the date of the contract. That it has
lowered the standard of honesty, intelligence
and enterprise of the mass
of farmers and brought the vocation
inio disiepute seems to go without
question. That it has, every fall,
forced down the price of cotton, seems
equally true. That it has a deleterious
influence upon the manhood of him
who places himself in the dependent
attitude involved in securing a lion is
That it nat only cripples energy and
enterprise, but increases extravagance,
is a fact universally admitted. That it
has been a most fruitful causc of fail-1

such advances on a speculation upon
crops not yet planted, is sustained by

to the law do not now exist, no one
will deny. The necessity for the existence

"The murder of Mr. Turner by
State Constable Newbold last week is
an outrageous proceeding, and unless
the murderer is punished to the full
extent of the law, the dispensary system
will lose many of its warmest sup
Kmgstree County Record.
Why 8honld Newbold or anyone
else be permitted to waylay a man before
daylight and shoot him to death?
V/hy skould an officer have any snch
authority as to kill a map merely becius?
he is supposed to be a "lawbreaker?
(and in this case th's was
not even so).
Th8 killing of Tarner Dy .wewDOja
in Spartanburg last week is another
outrageous crime that can be laid at
the door ot the dispensary system.
The murdered mun was an upright,
law-abiding citizen, and his life was
worth more than all the profits that
ever can be yielded by the dispensary.
New bold is a State constable and there
wa3 no excuse for bis crime. Ue
should be captured and pay the penalty
of his crime.
But these are rare and strange times
that have come upon the people of the
State. The dispensary law demanded
an armed body of men for its enforcement
and these mon were clothed with
authority tbat ran into license to do as
they pleased; arrest, search, confiscate,
imprison and kiil the humble citizen
who had 110 redres?. His property
and his life were at their mercy and
resistance meant death. "We cannot
recall a 6ingle cise daring tbe whole
of this sickening and humiliating
period of constabulary rale where one
of them was punishad for any flagrant
act of injustice or bish-handect violation
of law save bis suspension or dismissal
from the force. He only lost
his job, and maybe only for a time,
then a restoration came and he marched
forth to lawlessness again.
It is not the de3ire of The Headlight
to anticipate justice or create an unreasonable
prejudice agaiust any man
who mnct appear before a jury on
fnv hi? life or libertv. But we
can bat look upon the killing of Mr.
J. H. Turner by Constable Newbold
as a most crnel and nnprovoked murder,
and demand that the whole power
of our state government be brought to
bear to punish the assassin. Mr.
Turner was a good citizen and a true
man. He was an honest, practical
farmer, and lored his ;people and his
calling. He figured conspicuously at

day in this month, aud by a unanimous
rote was elected one of our
delegates to the state convention in
Colombia. Mr. Tarner, on Monday
of last week, was in oar office, and in
conversation with the senior editor of
this paper, remarked that he could ill
afford the expense of going to Colamdia,
but felt it bis duty to. respond
to the call of his people.
Henry Turner was a sober man and
a christian geotleman. On that fatal
morning he started to the train, but
when halfway between his home and
the depot, without warning or provocation,
was shot dead by a state
officer. We are told that the shooting
was a mistake?that it was'an accident
If auy mistake was made it was a
criminal mistake, for when Newbold
fired that fatal shot he had murder in
his heart and death in bis hand. The
pi & oi au auuiucuu is c4uo.11> jjjucj
A man may fire one pistol accidentally,
but when two weapons are discharged
the assailant knows what he is doing
and means business.
Just so long as such men as Constable
Newbold are turned loose on a
community, no citizen's life is safe.
Had any one else passed that spot
where those officers were ambushed,
as did Mr. Turner, ihev would have

Gov Etlerbe did right to offer a reward
for the arre5t of Newbold. Now,
when he is -brought to justice, let
Constable Newbold take his chances
as any other criminal mu9t do, and
pay hii own lawyer's fees. And if he
is convicted, let the law * take its
course. Onr people look upon the
murder of Mr. Torner as one ot the

any distress, disease or inconvenience
