Can We Safely Spare Two Hundred
Thousand Negro Laborers ?
The summer meeting of the State
Agricultural and Mechanical Society
and State Grange took place in Ma
rion last week. The discussion of the
labor question was the main point of
interest, and Senator M. C. Butler,
who was present, said that this' was
the great question for the farmer.
"We should not mince matters in
this discussion. The labor of this
country is becoming more unsettled
every year. There has been no time
since 1865 when the labor has been
more unreliable than now. It is ad
mitted by the colored men. even that
those born since freedom are becom
ing more and more worthless. We must
get a supply for this deficiency. We
could safely spaie two hundred thous
and of the negro laborers. Let them
go into Kansas.and elsewhere if they
wish. We could follow the example
of Mr. Crayton and get Germana.
There is too much cheap labor. Some
have been driven by necessity to pro
cure machinery and use it them
selves. They have not ten mouths
now to feed where they should have
had one. Experience is good for us
all. Go upon the farms and give
them personal supervision. Land in
New Jersey which was worth $1 per
acre is now worth $100 per sere. He
waa sorry to believe that the laborers
we have are not making progress in
this country. The white race caunot
afford to be handicapped by such a
drag upon them, and must use all
labor saving machines and get rid of
an army of drones. There is no ques
tion of so much consequence to the
progress of the State. There should
be no question between capital and
labor. No question is so grave as thal
of maintaining the efficiency of our
labor. There is no more beneficent
purpose for the use of brain than the
tilling of the soil.
Senator Butler said furthermore, I
wish to elicit discussion. I have done
all in my power to show that I had
reluctantly come to the conclusion
that negro labor is not reliable or
progressive. Has it advanced, as it
should have done ? The Lien law was
passed to meet the exigencies of the
occasion. No people got so much
benefit from this law as the colored
people. We have kept them going
at our own expense. Can we afford
to continue this ruinous system ?
Will they never be able to stand
alone ? ?They are as bad off to day as
when they started in 1865. It is not
a question of sentiment, but one of
interest, which concerns us and our
children. It is not a question of how
many bales of cotton this or that man
can make, but there is no parallel in
history where a people bas stood by
an inferior race as we of the South
have done. But we must do simple
justice tp ourselves, and must strive
every year more and more to make
ourselves independent of them. There
is no man but will admit that such
labor in becoming more and more in
efficient. How are we to meet this
question ? To my mind we must do
aa some of our friends have said, that
is, put a homogeneous race in their
p^CeaT^Strtrhalf of'the cotton of the '
South has been made by white labor.
What becomes of these people when
we take the protecting intelligence of
the white man away from them ?
They rettograde to a condition that
no one could have dreamed of. Let
that labor take charge of this country
and you have a howling wilderness in
the place of plenty. The colored man
has not made the progress which your
speakers have noticed so forcibly here
to-day. I do not decry negro labor,
but I want to see this country inde
pendent of it. We cannot rely upon
them alone. The great progress in
this country is due to the white la
borer and not to the negro. One who
has labored in the cause of education
of the negro said " that he could go to
a certain point but all beyond that
made him topheavy, and that he has
not made one step forward morally."
I have been forced to admit, against
. my will, to say that the time bas
come for us to look for some way out
of this difficulty. We have progressed
in spite of fate. If they want to go
to Indiana let them go. You will
never have any material increase in
your white population until you get
a material diminution of the colored
man. When you put the foreigner
into competition with the negro he
does not stay, he goes, and so would
you. He has no people to associate
with. I think twenty years is experi
ment enough. We cannot afford to
carry this incubus on our shoulders.
They must keep up with the course of
progress or must be left behind.
Selling Liquor to a Man of Known
M On Thursday morning the City
Council heard an appeal from the
Mayor's Court in which a barkeeper
.in town had been found guilty and
fined for furniehing intoxicating liq
nor to a man of known intemperate
habits. The council sustained the
findings below, and the defendant
gaye notice of appeal to the Circuit
We are delighted by the action of
the Mayor of Anderson, and sincere
ly hope that it will be imitated by
many other Mayors. The saloon keep
er who deliberately sells liquor to a
drunkard, a drunken man .or a boy,
violates the laws, and the rules of
morality and humanity, and ought to
be prosecuted and severely put ished
whenever the proof can be obtained.
We do not believe the State has any
right to say whether a citizen shall or
shall not drink whiskey, but she has
a right and is bound to protect thoee
of her citizens who from infirmity,
previous indulgence or youth are in?
capable of taking care ot themselves.
If our friends of the temperance so
cieties would abandon the prohibition
issue for a time and devote their ef
forts to^stimulating the prosecution
of such cases as that in Anderson,
they would do a vast amount of im
mediate, practical good.-Greenville

-For the Advertiser
Col. W. li; Folk Writes us from
toe Sor. h Carolina Mountain?.
HENDERSONVILLE, N. C., Joly 26.
DEAR ADVERTISER: We left home
Thursday morning, one week ago, for
the mountains of Western North Car
olina. Boarded the traiu at Trenton,
and had a fine opportunity to see the
crops along the Ridge. They were
good, bat beginning to need rain sad
ly. At Columbia we exchanged cars
for Hendersonville, N. C , there be
ing in waiting a special car destined
for the mountains. Had a delightful
ride from Columbia to Alston, al
thongh nothing especially interesting
outside. Dined on board the train at
2 o'clock. After dinner we began to
take the census of the passengers on
board. Jost back of os sat two bright
girls going to Glonn Springs to spend
the summer-f.he Misses Mitchell,
from near Batesburg. They will cer
tainly make thg boys either joyful or
sad, if they remain there long, so
winsome are their laces.
No sooner had we gotten through
playing the "agreeable" here; before
we were accosted by Hon. William
Munro of Union, S. C , and after that
we began to swim in the sea of poli
tics until he left us at Union, his
town. What we said and intend to
do we cannot tell you now.
For the encouragement of our farm
ers,^ let me say just here, that the
crops through Union and Spaitanburg
Counties, and through this whole up
country, are poorer than we have ever
seen anywhere, and poorer, they say,
than they have been in twenty-five
years. The dry weather is the cause.
At Spartanburg, (our old home, we
mightsay, for four years of our "teens"
were spent here) we find a bustling,
stirring little city, full of people, busi
ness and pleasure. After exchang
ing trains and shaking hands with
casual acquaintances, the "all aboard"
word is given, and off to the moun
tains we go ! And in the train there
is scarcely standing room-laughing
women, talking men and crying ba
bies, accompanying the monotonous
rattle of the train. As usual here
comes the inevitable drummer for the
hotels-with flaming cards and per
suasive eloquence. And, in this con
nection, we must pay our especial re
spects to one who calls himself Jarbo,
alias Jumbo. We do this in order
that others seeing our examples may
profit by them. We have just got
rid of these nuisances, and we can
now begin to view the prospect over.
The train moves carefully along
around the huge abysmal gorges, at
the rugged base of mountain on moun
tain, like a grand panorama, unfold
ing in its sweep beauties wild as when
they first fell from the hand of God.
We know nobody nor anything un
til we get to Tryon, a station on the
Spartanburg and Asheville Railroad,
where, much to our gratification and
surprise, we uaw one lady on a mule
bowing to us several times, who is
very familiar in all her beauty and
vivacity to the people, of our town,
once Mrs. Georgia H., now Mrs.
Wright, of Columbia. They say the
Tryon Hotel is a good one, and we
are sure the scenery is fine. Up we
go, until we get to the real climb of
the railroad, the grade in the road
where, with heavy trains, they have
to uncouple and take up one box car
at a time, or use two "engines to get
us over the mountains. To look at
it, it seems nearly as steep as the bill
in front of Dr. Jennings'. At Salu
da, another station, among the spec
tators we see Gov. Bonham and lit
tle Frank, which makes ijdptl like
we were nearer home thaf?We were.
Arrived at Hendersonville at 8
o'clock, and find comfortable quar
ters at the Fletcher House, on Main
6treet. The table is the beet in the
town-supplied as it is from the line
farm of the proprietor, who lives ten
miles from here on the road to Ashe
ville. Really the air U fine. Sleep
ing nedor blankets in July is a fact.
Flies and musquitoes are at a dis
count, and it is glorious to know yon
have got them where you can rule
them. No sweltering in the sum
mer's heat, no punting and blowing
and pulling off coats, and donning of
linen dusters, to keep life in you up
here! The water is splendid.
Rested from the heat and fatigue
of travel, we drive out in the after
noon of Friday to see the residences
of the Charlestoniaus around Fiat
Rock-a little town about four miles
from here. We passed, cn route, the
mountain residences of Barker, Tien
holm, and others, and we dismounted
at the gate leading into the residence
of the Rev. Mr. Drayton, sn Episco
pal divine. The grounds, hot houses,
plants, and rare trees in here, and
the terraced lawns, remind ns of a
veritable Scotch Residence. From
this poir t you can 6ee the Memmin
ger residence on a high hill, fronting
a sloping lawn covered with grass and
browsing cows-encircled partially
by a pond-now undergoing repairs
by and under the immediate super
vision of the Hon. C. G. Memminger
himself. In the distance, command
ing a grand view, is "the Coxe House,"
here known-built as it is said by one
Joe Coxe, a rich fellow, who made
certain promises to a young lady of
this place, but which were broken up
by bia enraged mother. The hand
some residence is now owned by So
licitor Jervey of the Charleston bar.
On our return therefrom we passed
by the Henry Middleton house-who
had to leave it in all its grandeur and
beauty, because he killed a ruffian,
who attempted to rob him of some of
his earthly treasure. Back again to
the hotel, prepared for supper. Al
.'n the morning of Saturday, while
sitting in the veranda, we SJC the
sweet, smiling face of a lady well
known to our society-Mrs. Beall, of
Augusta-coming to see us. At home
again, as she is so peculiarly charm
On Sunday we drive to the Tower
- four miles over and on top of the
mountains-to see, as the notices
stuck around here say-the Kingdom
of this world. This is a thing gotten
up by a Northern man-to swindle
the foolish traveler !
This is a pleasant little town, and
a good plaje for over-worked men
ana invalid women, who need qui
etude and rest. We are just now
getting the keys to the secrets of the
mountains, and when we get back
from Caesar's Head, Buck Forest and
Brevard, we will give yon nome of
the fat things of the mountains, inas
much as you have taBted the " lean"
in this letter. W. H. F.

MERYILLE KAILROAD COMPANY, I
AUGUSTA, GA., June 25, 1883 J
In the Chronicle and Constitution'
alis/ of Sunday, the 24th , is a com
munication signed " M," and dated,
" Edgefield C. H., S. C, June 20th,
1883," which contains a clause com
posed of charges which are so utterly
the reverse of fact, and so grossly un
just to the Augusta and Summerville
Railroad Company, (" the city street
car line"), that, of course, I ask space
to deny a"iH disprove tho assertion
It is stated that the farmers of
Edgefield say "that the Charlotte,
Columbia and Augusta Railroad add
five cents on each hundred pounds to
their freight rates to Augusta because
the road is-required to pay that much
for the privilege cf crossiug the City
Street Car Line."
Now the written contract between
the Augusta and Summerville Rail
road Company (the " City Street Car
Line") and the Charlotte, Columbia
and Augusta Railroad Company, un
der which all business between these'
two companies has, tor many years in
the past, been conducted, and which
is binding upon both companies lor
many years to come, after defining
the term "Local Freight of which
the point of orgiual shipment or of
ultimate destination ia the City of
Augusta," sets forth " that the Char
lotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad
Company shall be required to pay to
the Augusta and Sumraervilie Rail
road Company (the 'City Street Oar
Line') nocharges whatsoever on Local
This local freight is exactly the
branch of business embraced in the
assertion of" M." Any one id capa
ble o? understanding that, by these
terms, the Augusta ano! Summerville
Railroad Company is, by written con
tract, prohibited from making any
charge whatsoever against the Char
lotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad
Company, upon any pioduce or mer
chandise brought to the Augusta
market, or upon that which is shipped
from the Augu-ta market over the
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta
Railroad. The same exemption from
charge by the Augusta and Summer
ville Railroad Company is enjoyed by
all the other railroads entering the
city of Augusta in addition, I assert
the act, that the Augusta and Sum
.mervillt Railroad Company has never,
from the first day of its existence,
made any charge on freight which
even approximated to the rate of five
cents per one hundred pounds. The
rates of this company do not reach
one-third ofthat amount; and these
cannot, under any circumstances, be
imposed upon freight brought in for
sale in Augusta, nor upon freight sold
in Augusta and shipped by railroad
out of the city. On that kind of
freight, the Augusta and Summerville
Railroad Company does not charge as
much RS one cent fora thousand tons.
It charges nothing whatever, and in
addition, permits the entirely free
and unlimited uee of its track for that
purpose. In proof of my ?issertion,
I append the last report of the Char
lotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad
of dues to the Augusta and Summer
ville Railroad Company. All others
contain only the same items.

There are many remedies suggested

is simply and easily carried out. The 1
following is all there is to do :-Drag '
the body into the nearest shade; ?
place it in a sitting position against !
a wall, a tree, or anything that will j
be a support for the back ; loosen the '
foliar of the shirt or dress ; throw ice j
coid water over the head copiously; ?
give a pretty still" dose of essence of
Jamaica ginger-say an ounce .or
mure to a half glass of water. Keep
ap the application of water after the
ginger has been given, but moderately, ]
ind it need not be ice cold. Let the
patient have plenty of airarouud him,
n an hour's time he will get up and
ivalk home or io a street car. This is
ill the treatment necessary and it is
jased on common sense. The oppres
sion on the brain caused by the heat
s relieved ly the cold water, and the <
jlood is sent from the head to the ^
iody. The ginger (if-not obtainable (

of people beheld its operation
and effects with satisfaction and
pleasure. There its utility was
shown beyond question, and the
award of the examiners gave it
tho highest rank in ?hat class of
inventions to which it belongs.
It is alleged, by those who have
used it, that cotton passed through
it is advanced at least two cents
in its market value. There are
some people, however, who be
lieve that it pays better to sell
dirty cotton than it does to clean
it. Now this is a great mistake,
and wo call their attention to the
following example, which is
made on a 5C0 pound bale of cot

The Clarke Seed Cotton Cleaner it'f'ff. Co., Atlanta, (Ja.:
Gentlemen-Before I would purchase Clarke's Seed Cotton Cleaner, I wished
to make a trial test, which I did in the following manner: I weighed carefully 1,500
pounds ol' dry seed cotton, which I cleaned and ginued. I then ginned 1,500 lbs.,
taken from tho same stall, uucleaned. Sent to Newnan both bales, which were
sold for me. The cleaned bale lost threo pounds in weight-and sold for lt cents
Eor pened more than the bale not cleaned. This season the patronage to my gin
as gieatly increased, several parties patronizing me to get the benefitof the Clean
er, closing their private gin houses and hauling me their crops.

UKAR SIR-In reference to the Hall
Gin, 1 must say I am well pleaded with
it. It gives perfect satisfaction and a bet
ter vUrnout in lint I have never had than
the Hall Gin gives. I ginned last season
500 bales, aud every ono was satisfied
with tho turnout ol their cotton, as itover
thirded itself considerably; and another
thing about it, you can gin theco ton wet.
and it will gin it c eau from the seed.
This is a great thing for agin to do-that
is, ginning for the public.
On the 70-saw Gin I bought of you. I
have ginned from 12 lo 13 bales in one
dav. Yours most respectfully,
J. H. LAGRONE.
