ing It is evident that tho custom, as it
rps exists, is in favor of the owner of st

the er, the renter and tho laborer, in
the ratio of ten dollars to ono dollar. Ai
lese must not be forgotten that this
de- cotton g owing State, and that stock
itity ing ls only an incident in our agrlcu
jine al pursuits. The present system ol
3 ?s bor makes the adoption oftho Stock
and an agricultural necessity, lt is ai
rious fact that the average value of
lands per acre will not re ich four (lol
as is evidenced by our various pi
has Biles of lands. Tho cost of building
won fence is more than the market vain
ison the land, and there is a widespread
that position on (he part of freedman tos
tho splitting ol'rails. There aro but few
cross fences in our best organized farms ?
and plantations, as a general rule, only
have an outside fence, and it not strong
enough to keep the stock, out of our fields.
Stock that is not kept under fence usu
ally disappears when turned orit at large.
Self preservation is the first law of na
ture, and tho tillers of the soil will kill
stock before they will lose their crops,
upon wrbich depends tho supportof them
selves, their wives and children. And
enlightened public opinion wi ll not blame
them for it.
I have given my reasons for hoing an
advocate of the Stock Law ; and will next
give the reason why T did not press the
matter before the General Assembly
wbon I had the honor in part to repre
sent this county. .
The experiment of the Stock Law was
I first tried in Anderson county, and 1 at
tribute the fact of Anderson standing in
the front rank of tho Counties in this
State in progress and development, an
largely owing to the adoption of this law,
I believed that Abbeville would follow
the lead of Anderson. If you will look
at the map yon will see that Edgelield
county is bounded on the East by the
Saluda River and on th*-West by tho Sa
vannah River. I thought that b3' wait
ing, our people would become a unit in
favor of it, and that when Newberry,
Lexington and Aiken wore all ready to
adopt it, wo would have the benefit of
the law without tue expense of building
a line fence between Counties. Those
who are not in favor of the law, have
only to pa}' a visit to either of the conn
ties thar have adopted it, to become con
I regard it the imperative duty of our
Legislature to give this matter their se
rious consideration. I have always
thought that the true object of all legis
lation is to secure the greatest good to the
greatest number. The present system
compels the land owner, tho renter and
t e tiller of the soil to guard their crops
against the small number of stock in our
county. I think prompt and decided ac
tion in favor of giving to all of Edgelield
the benefit of this great law, would bo a
