TST7 -PTT/iTlTTED AS USUAL,
New England Republican manufacturers
Iio*?e to ompete with the Sooth
by sscurir g legislation on the part of
the general government in j^avor of
New England and against (he South.
Th?se people bave a givat way of
lookiog to the government when they
cau't help themselves. Paternalism
was the doctrine of their ancestors,
and it has even a stronger hold on the
descendants. Here is the <vay ihey
propose to compete with Sonthern
miil3, which is taken from the Maii, of
Lev? ell, Mass:
The ore great industry upon which
depends the prosperity of Lowell,
Muss., and the individual comfort of
every citizen is the textile trade. That
industry iu New England mn?t D8
protected, anu placed on an equal
footing sruh t.io manufacturers of the
South, iu order to eDjov equal prosperity
iu the future. Either that or
th* operatives of to-day will be diapluced
by chcap foreign labor.
It is a problem involving th'Alaily
bread and butter of onr people.
Thus far the measures suggested to
plsce New England ou a more advantageous
ground, have failed of popular
approval for the reason that they contemplate
backward step from the progressive
labor policy that has distinguished
Massachusetts ia the past.
Massachusetts dees not wish to take
any back ward step: It does not,therefore,
wish to lower its standard to
that of the Southern States where the
character and quality of the "cheap
white labor" has been fit subject ifor
?- " - --? .1? :.*Ai

Massachusetts does not wish to place
its own intelligent and faithful people
upon a level with the negro labor ol
the South?a labor which by environment
and laek of refinements content
to exist nnder conditions that to the
manly "and independent people of New
England would be intolerable.
But Massacdusetts is willing and
anxious to raise the staudard of tbe
South to the position occupied by itself.
This can be done by Congress voting
to submit to the States a constitutional
amendment providing for uniform
hours of labor all over this great conntry.
Such an amendment would cause
hardship for none; would simplify intricate
questions of competition; and
would solidify the national spirit by
nrrin'hociVinor th?f arfi One
great familv?united by common intercut
and the bonds of patriotism.
It is to the personal advantage of
every man and woman in Lowell,
Mass., in New England, and, in fact,
throughout the country, to bring every
possible legitimate influence to bear
public sentiment and the
Jaw-makers who are servants of the
- , "Tbc one great industry upon which
depends the prosperity of Lowell,
ifuss.^is (he textile trade." This ;was
true scanv years ago; it was true before
the South began to develop as a
ggp:,.: manufacturing section. Lowell couldn't
then compete with England. The cry
was then raided that Lowell must be
artificially protected from England.
The same tactics must be followed
now, because Lowell can not compete
with the South. "Thst industry in
New England must be protected, and
An on crtnol -foftfiro* with jhft
manufacturers oi'the South, in order
to enjoy equal prosperity in the future."
I is the same old cry: Protection,
protection agaiDst England; now they
musrt be protected against the South!
A tDese shrewd New England Protectionists
always ask for aid from
the government upon the pretext of a
desirelto help some other class. As
(SSESg^ the protective tariff was advocated to
keep cut "cheap foreign labor" and
p'resep* "America for Americans,"
so the Mail tells us that Lowell must
be protected against "the [cheap white
labor" of the Southern States. "Either
that or operatives of today will be
displaced by cheap foreign labor."
The old tariff argument over and over
again. Of course, it must be claimed
as a purely unselfish policy, and hence
it is to help the operatives of Lowell,
not the manufacturers. Yet its real
object is to put New England on an
equal footing with] the South by
forcing the South throngh legislation
??? ^jto pay New England wages, although
tScT^onthern operatives can live on
much Jess than New England operatives.
"Massachusetts is willing and
| anxious to T^e-"tfre~lfaTTt??^of fhe
South to the position oc^upi^d by
iiself." How kina this is of these 8^sclfish
New England manufacturers*
But thoughtful people, joplc, who'
believe in the igood old doctrine that
every borne, every home, every county
and every State should be left jast as
far as possible to regulate and manage
its own affairs without any outside
interference, will not only not accept
Ills kind cfFer of the Mail, bat will indignantly
resent it. In the first place,

Now England was once so much interested

Tttp of tbc Hews and I
Courie/, though they mav not be entirelv^accnrate,
are fall of useful information
and should set the people
of the'State to thinking. The Greenville
News points out that there Las
been a steady increase in homicides in
the last ten years. The number in
1897 doubles the number in 1887.
jThe News shows that the number
[ began to swell suddenly in 1891. It
"What the cause is we cannot conjecture.
Id his message to the General
Assembly in 1893 Governor Tillman
presented statistics of arrest in
the State, from which he attempted to
prove that the dispensary la* had
causedia falling off in drunkenness.
We do not say that ihe dispensary
system is chiefly responsible for the
increase in homicides of the last few
? V>C> f lllA 111.
j years; we r&iuvr suspc^u mv m
j crease is to be attributed to vari us
causes, but it is fair to point out that
the 'great moral institution' and best
solution of the whiskey problem has
not led to the preservation of life.
If the dispensary law is what is
claimed for it; if it is iu troth a great
reform, and if strong drink is the primary
cause of the majority of murders,
(which we doubt,) the era of the dispensary
should have been marked by
& striking decrease in the number of
persons who annually die by violence.
From January 1, 1887, to July 1, 1893,
when the dispensary law went imu
operation, fix years and a half, the
total Dumber of homicides was 753, an
average for each year of 11G. From
the four year3 and a half beginning
with the time that the dispensary went
into operation the total number has
been 850, an average of 189.
The bad record of 1891, when the
number was 143, would tend to disprove
any inference adverse to the
dispensary system. However, it will
be admitted that average figures arc
the best test of figures if any at all
are to be considered. The" figures
show that the nnmber of murders is
more than 60 per ceni greater under
the dispensary than under the liceuse
system that preceded it. We repeat
that while it may be that the dispensary
has not caused the increase in
homicides, it does seem that the dispensary
hos not reduced them,and the
claims in behalf of the dispensary as
a 'moral institution' are to that extent
to be discredited."
We believe the newspapers should
do all in iheir power to reduce the
number of homicides and murders in
the St^te, but the News and Courier
has gone a little too fa/. It reports
two hundred "murders" in the State
for 1897, although it says that many
of them were suicides and in many
cases tbe accused acted in self-defence.
Then, it is cot corrcct to say that there
were too hundred "murders" in 1897.
In Fairfield, the News aud Courier reports
five homicides. In one of these
cases, the proof clearly showe I that
the dcceaied died of heart disease, and
.?nt frr>m ftnv violence inflicted bv
another. If '.here is one error in each
County, the number would be reduced
about 20 per cent. It is also of interest
to know that of the five accused of
murder in this county, four were
colorcd. This proportion, 4 out of 5,
will doubtless be true of the whole
State. As. long as it has been so
thoroughly advertised to the world
that human life is so cheap in South
Carolina, the News and Courier should
not stop without ascertaining how
many of the 6layers were white and
how many colorcd. South Carolina's
record is worse thau it ought to be,
but v. is not as bad a3 many other
ataies, anu ine rest w iuc wuuuj
ought not to be led to the belief that a
man cannot live in safety in the State.
We feel much safer in South Carolina
than we would in Ne>v York or Chicago,
or even Atlanta. In fact, here
in Fairfield a citizen 13 ja^t as safe
from bodily harm as anywhere in the
world. He is safer than 111 Charleston.
No citizen in Winnstoro has
ever been knocked in the head wi h a
brick as he was turning a street corner,
although we have only one policeman
on du'.y at night and a few street
lamps several hundred yard? apart.
Since smallpox has developed in
Greenville, it shows th t no one is
entirely safe in the State. :* op!e arc
travelling from point to poi,. , ai.d you
cannot tell when you may c.?me in
contact with some one who is cither
taking the disease or has been exposed
to it. A nassenerer may be on the
train from Greenville or Rock Hill,
and he may stop over in Winnsboro,
and tans spread the disease. Or it
may be that some or.e from Ridgeway
or White Oak may have been on the
train with the man from Greenville or
Tlock Bill and the Ridgeway man or
the White Oak man may spread tho
germs of the dreadful disease. There
arc fcaodreds and hundreds of conceivable
ways in which smallpox may
be pre ad. When it can be prevented
with sd little expense and so little inconvenience,
it is almost folly for people
net to do it. Let everybody be
vaccinated. Should any one in this

result of gross carelessness. There
are a great many people, especially
amort; the colored people, who in
these very hard times cannot affoidthe
expense. The town council should
sjake siepa to have all such vaccinatcd.
iHien, too, this class arc apt to be indifferent,
and to meet the situation
?acc^iation should be made compulsory.
A GixTLKMA^Oge of our most distinguished
citizens, toI3-4is once the
incident told this morning about
Wade Hampton, of Revolutionary
tame. This gentleman suggested that
If cr.m^fhinor li'tft rijrhfflons

afterwards owned nearly all of the
land which Wade Hampton took so
unja^tly from the Feasters and Cole
man9. The incident shows that wrongdoing
was on the Whig side as well
as the Tories. The Tories were mostly
wealthy, acd sided with England because
they thought that their property
would be safer. Mr. Feaster is right
when he says that many of the best
people in the State are descended
from Tories. Now that so many
years have passed since those strange
times, and prejudice subsided, it can
do no harm to seek the truth of those
We think it was in Sunday's issae
of oth inst. that the State suggests
that a Judge ought not to admit a
person accused of murder to bail, if
he admits the killing. This would be
a aicst ontrageou3 rule, ana would not
be a great.harashipiu many cases, but
against tiie constitution. A man is
attacked by a robber, with a pistol or
other deadly weapon, and he kills his
assailaot, under circumstances making
a perfectly plain case of self-defence.
There may ha e keen eye-witnesses,
all corroboratii-fi iLe statement of the
accused. He can not deny the killing.
Yet if he admits it, under (he Siat's
rule he must lie in j*il possibly two or
three month?, although the Constitution
says that he is entitled to bail

great. We are quoting the

chickens and eggs*
Now that tbe egg nog season i? ai
hand, and the demand for eggs is approaching
flood tide?prices in the
cities ranging from 20 to 30 cents a
dozen?it is not a bad time to emphasize
for the benefit of out- own people
a suggestion which appears in the
Greenville (3. C ) News, as follows:
"The markets are never glutted
with chickens and eggs. There is always
a ready gale for them son.ewhere,
and in these days of quick transportation
they can be shipped from South
Caroliua to any point in the United
States or Europe. Not on the globe
is there any better climate for the production
ot poultry than South Carolina's.
There are a thousand reasons
why South Carolina should produce
for export millions of domestic fowls,
and one of them is that there is good
money in it. If half a dozen South
Carolina farmers, tired of raising 5-cent
cotton, would turn themselves entirely
to the production of chickens and
eggs, devoting all thiir energies and
intelligence to the work, we believe
that they would earn good profits and
set a valuable example to their fellow
There are just tv.ro things in the way
of sacce8s in chicken raising, for market,
among oar people. First they
take it up as a fad, and buy some
fancy breed of chickens at "a faucy
price. They build all sorts of taucy
calculation s on the profits"from chickens
and eggs, at fancy prices, ond

the little chicks are eaten by cats" and
rats, or disease gets amon^ their

Or, on the other hi nd they go into
the business on too large a scale to
begin with, without proper preparation,
without experience, without acknowledge
whatever of the habits,
anatomy or diseases of cbicken3.
They go into the business without any
correct idea of the expense attached to
i', or without any intention of giving
to the business the study, time and
labor that would be required in any
other field of endeavor. The result is
financial loss and disappointment, but
in neither of these cases i3 loss due to
the business itself. There arc many

liaising fancy birds for chicken
shows is one line of the Lusines?, and
raising chickens and eggs for maiket
is quite another. The man who goes
iu'o the business should fally deicrmine
which branch he intends 10 follow.
Then be should start into the
business modestly, and build it up as
bis knowledge increases with experience.
If he coald tpcud some
time on ; he chicken ranges of an experienced
poultry man it would prove
a great benefit. If it is to be followed
for profit, it must be treated in a
business-like way, and dignified as a
business, and not treated as a side
issue or a fad.
Commenting on the paragraph
which I have quoted from the Green
ville News, the Charleston News and
Courier qnotes some of the government
statistics on the chicken and egg
product of the country as follows:
"It is estimated bv competent authority
on the basis of the reports in
