THE NEWBERRY COTTON MILLS.
When the Newberry Cotton Mills
were incorporated in 1882, many
persons believed that the charter,
like that of 1872, would never be
of greater practical value than the
paper on which it was printed.
Our capital was timid, our people
were not accustomed to manufac
tures, and, as a rule, they knew lit
tle about any other than real estate
investments. Even the most san
guine felt that, owing to the temper
of our citizens and the novelty and
magnitude of the enterprise, much
patience and time and hard work
would be required to raise the mon
ey necessary for the erection of a
factory. Results, however, have
leaped beyond expectation. On
ly a few months ago the corporators
appointed a committee to receive
subscriptions; at the meeting last
Monday, the chairman of that com
mittee reported that the subscrip
tions reached the sum of $157,000
seven thousand above the limit at
which the organization was to be
effected. These are money sub
scriptions; they are perfectly sound,
and represent the very best busi
ness men of our county.
The company is now organized,
and the character of the men who
compose the Board of Directors,
gives assurance of an economical
and succeseful management of the
concern. By experience they know
the importance of labor and the val
ue of a dollar. They are, without
exception, men who, from a finan
cial point of view, have avouched
their merit by the best of all tests,
the successful management of their
own affairs. Representing at least
two thirds of the capital stock, they
look upon thh enterprise as an in
vestment that must be conducted
so as to yield a fair per cent. They
are very different in mould, but
they are alike in being earnestly
and practically bent upon one end
profit, with, of course, such inciden
tal advantages as will necessarily
flow to the community from the
success of this enterprise.
It has been shown that our
favorable situation will be a set
off against any disadvantages
that may result from a lack of
water power, and we believe
that the success of the venture
is now assured. All feel that
the factory will bring incalculable
benefit to the town and county.
The only doubt that ever existed
was as to the probability of success.
* We think that doubt has been re
moved, and iNewberry will soon lis
* ten to the rush of looms and the
hum of spindles.
The Newes and Courier says:
"'Not for a long time have the Denm
ocratic prosp)ects in a Presidential
election been as g'ood as now. We
have to anchor ourselves manfully
to the time-honored Democratic
*- principle of 'A tariff for revenue
only' to achieve a victory next year
which will place the administration
of the country in Democratic hands.'
We may manfully, anchor ourselves
to all the time-honored Democratic
principles in the political calendar,
and withal never see the presi
dency. But the Newcs and Courier's
prophetic utterances have an agree
able flavor, and we are willing to
see the anchor cast, and the ex
* periment made.
The Carolina Spartan says : "Our
school buildings here are in a most
dilapidated condition. They look
from a distance like neglected barns
that never did save anything in
them." The gieat misfortune with
most of' our school buildings is that
they nev-er do have in them much
else than a teacher and a number
of unwilling urchins. While our
- people are devoting so much time
to public roads, it would be well for
them to consider the kind of houses
their children are taught in, and it
possible begin reform and improve
Have the Greenville Newes and
the Anderson Intelligencer sent the
Railroad Commissioners to Co
ventry? Strange silence !
The Carolina Spartan says Judge
Witherspoon has just decided that
debts for whiskey sold by bar
keepers. may be collected.
The New York Sun speaking of
the National Convention of colored
men to be held next fall, says:
Here is the interesting thing
about the proposed Convention: It
is intended to be an organized ex
pression of discontent with the po
litical and social treatment of the
colored people by their fellow-citi
zens. The signers hold it be "an
undeniable and lamentable fact that
the present condition of the race is c
insecure, and the future still more
alarming ;" and the; bring against
the white majority five distinct and
specific charges. We condense the c
1. Negro labor at the South is not
fairly remunerated. The Southern
negro is not protected by law in the
collection of money due him.
2. In most parts of the country
the negro does notlave a fair show
in the public schools.
3. The negro is not protected in
his civil rights, notwithstanding the
laws passed by Congress.
4. His political rights are ignored.
Six and a half millions of people
are without representation in Con
5. The negro does not get his
share of Executive protection and
No fair minded man, black or
white, will deny that if 'tiose alle
gations are true it is time for united
action on the part of the negroes of
the thirty-eight States. They form
about one-eighth of the entire pop
ulation of the country. Equal
rights are guaranteed them by the
Coustitution. The laws are suffi
cient for the purpose. If these laws
are systematically ignored or eva
ded, and the negroes kept out of
full citizenship by a conspiracy of
white office-holders, it is none too
soon for an organized movement to
secure just treatment. The colored
people have a inillion and a quarter
votes ; that fact lies behind any
protest which they may make.
The conclusion of the signers of
this call is interesting :
"According to the signs of the
times the country is on the ev: of a
great political revolution, and it be
hoovcs us, as a race, to make our
interests paramount to those of any
party or sect ; that it is our duty to
unite and strike out on some bold
policy and line of action which will
bring us nearer to the estate of full
citizenship and power when this
great revolution is over."
A meeting of Barnwell farmers
was held at Blackville last Thurs
day, and 'The South Carolina
Truck Farmers' Association" organ
ized, its object being to promote the
interest and develop the enterprise
of fruit and vegetable growing in
that section of the country. They
will at once make arrangements
with responsible parties with whom
consignments can be made in the
principal Northern and Western
cities. The South Carolina Rail
way Company, being anxious to
aid in the development of the coun
try, has arranged a special tariff
for fruiLs and vegetables, putting
the rates so as to realize but a very
small profit for the company.
On the 2nd, the Columbia Board
of trade pledged $500 to enable
South Carolina to take her place in
the Boston Exposition next fall, and
adopted a resolution asking the
State Board of Agriculture to lend
a-helpmng hand. We hope that the
Stafe will be represented, but
we cannot see that the Board of
Agriculture has the authority to
make an appropriation for that pur
pose. The Board should not let
the press force it to do what it has
no right to do.
Judge Cothran speaking of the
report that he is a possible candi
date for Congress, says, "As unwil
lingly as I may be personally, to
thrust my.- name before the p)ublic,
it is nevertheless due to my of
ficial position, to say most emphati
cally that I have neither desire for
the position indicated, nor the van
ity to believe that my services as a
member of Congress could in any
wise be indispensable to the wel
fare of the State."
The Phtiladelphtia Becord speaks
in commendation of Senator But
ler, as a patriot and philanthropist.
and says: We do not hesitate to
aver that if he gives his mind to
the Carolina roads, and succeeds in
bringing to bear the power of the
State in making and keeping in or
der her public highways, he will
have done a more essential service
to his fellow-men than he ever

I am verging on eighty years, and deem it C
oy duty to suffering humanity to say that C
ay long life is due to BRANDnETII'S PILS r
rhich have been my sole medicine for half a
entury. I know the last forty-three years of
ay life is owing solely to their use. Your
'ILLS saved me many times after rhe best

p as hopeless. I have had many converts t
a purgation with BRANDRETH'S PILLs, and
ave seen them perform almost miracles of t
nre. For children, a few doses have cured
aeasles, scarlet fever, and whooping cough.
n all female troubles and weakness I have
ever known them to fail. In adult males I
ave known them to cure the worst cases of a
yspepsia, rheumatism, kidney diseases, dys- d
ntry and diarrbcea; even dropsy, paralysis, it
,nd apoplexy have yielded to a persistent 1j
ourse of BItANDRETH's PILLS. In fact I
ave found them the true Life Elixir. They
et as continual preventives against the
ffects of time, disease, and labor.
