PICKENS, S. C. :
THURSDAY JANUARY ?, 1010
Tk. i i .... r? _i

The first of January, 1910, is
a date which is of much interest
to those who make their
living by the cultivation of the
soil. It is on this date that the
lien law, or a certain portion of
it is repealed. The repeal was
enacted at the last session of the
legislature and the repeal act
goes into effect the first of the
Much has been said concerning
the lien law, and the repeal
of it, and there have been many
comments, both for and against
the action of the legislature, in
t.lms ninlrinir t.Vio rcirtoal Knt ?f
seems the general opinion that
the repeal was a wise one, and
that the farming class will be
benefited to some extent by the
law. There are quite a number
however, who has never understood
just what is implied by
the lien law, and who do not
know just what has been effected
by the state legislature in
thus repealing the law.
As it has stood until the present,
the lien law embodies three
different and distinct classes of
liens. Only one of these has
been repealed, the rest remain
just as they have been in the
past. The repealing act states
that the section of the codified
laws, 3059, is repealed, and all
other portions of the lien law
which conflict with the repeal
"The three classes of lien which
1 11 1 ' "

a lien to tho landlord, second a
lien to the laborers who aided in
the cultivation of the fields and
third, a lien to others who have
aided in the work by advancing
the money or supplies to
the cultivator. It is this last
one which has been repealed.
The first lien is that given the
landlord for rent. If a farmer
rents land for cultivation, the
person from whom thev were
rented has the right to levy on
the crop for this rent, and this
lien is prior to all others. Out
of the farmer's first crop shall
come the landlord's money. If
nothing remains after the money
has been paid for the rent,
the creditors are not entitled to
divido the landlord's share.
The second lien is given to
the lahorers who aid in the cul/
tivation of the field. This is
/ called the laborers' lien. This
claim is second to that of the
landlord, and after the former
has taken his share, the laborer
comes in for his claim before
The third lien is that given to
those who have advanced supplies
or money to the farmer to
aid him in his work. This
lien was good only when there
was a written contract or agreement
of some kind, which bound
the cultivator to the person advancing
the supplies or money,
with his paper, the creditor
could thus levy upon tho crop
after the other two liens had
been satisfied to the full extent 1
of the debt if he so desire. Af- '
ter tho first of January, this
portion of the the lien law 1><*- j
cones null and void. Tho par- i
ty who furnished the supplies 1
can sue the farmer, if he so desires,
and get judgment in the
i.. 111 < ?
rouris, mil. lie cannot levy on
the crops, as has been the custom.
There is seen to be a great i
change following this repeal of '
this particular section, sinci" it
will in the majority of the cases, ,
free the farmer from all obliga- t
tions except those ordinarily

man. Many of the farmers own I
their own fields, and of course
in this case, there can be no J
landlord's lien. The laborers, i
also, are usually paid without r
difficulty, and this lien which ,
they hold over the crops, while 'f
it still stands Rood, has never ?
beon a source of hardship to the
farmor. It has Always been
recognised as right and just that
tho laborer should have a good ..
claim for his work. .
The third portion of the lien
law however, was one which at j
times worked hardship upon
farmers of all classes, since farm- *
iiik is unu or mose industries in
which there is always a great
risk. Even when farmers owned
their own fields, and were '
able to pay the laborers without
difficulty, thov have ben;
obliged to be furnished with
provisions and money during the ;l
year until the crops began to become
a source of income. If the
year happened to be bad, and
the crons ran sommvhnt.
the farmer was at the niercv of
the person from whom he had
gotten the supplies, and was often
forced to avoid being entirely
"cleaned out," to give in the
fall a lien on his next year's
crop. In some instances these 1
liens had to be given in such a
manner as to give a prior claim
over debts which should havel
been settled (irst. The farmer
was s-ometimes tied hand and
foot hy these liens, and could
not help but feel that he was no (
longer independent .
With the repeal of the lien law,
which in one sense seems to
have been legislation specially
directed against one class of peo
pie, many of the troubles of the "
farmer will cease, lie will be
more independent than before
and he will be placed upon a
more equal footing, it is thought,
with other business men. in the
matter of meeting his obligations.
There has been much comment
on the liwn law since its
passage, and while it is something
of a protection to a certain
elass of merchants, it is
agreed to be a statute which can
easily be made a means bv
which the fanner may be taken
advantage of. For this reason,
many have expressed the opinion
that the repeal is one of t lie
most important acts of the last
