A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Hed is in the highest respect a Fam
ly News a r, devoted to the material in
terests of e people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. For Terms, see frst page.
PROTECION ENOUGH AND TO
The News and Courier has pub.
lished a number of letters from
presidents of Southern cotton mills,
in reference to the comparative ad
vantages of Southern and Northern
mills, in the manufacture of cotton.
Taking the mean of the statements
received from different mills, it ap
pears that the Southern mill has an
advantage of about $4 a bale. Af
ter showing, on this basis, that such
a mill as the Eagle and Phcenix, of
Columbus, Ga., has an advantage
of at least $67,500 over a Northern
mill of similar capacity, the News
and Courier says: "Verily this
is advantage enough. Protection
The point which we make is this:
If the Southern mill has an advan
tage of as much as $4 a bale over
its Northern competitor-if it has
"advantage enough and protection
enough" in its natural advantages,
why shoukL it be protected by legis
lation ? Why should the capital
invested in cotton mills in this
State be exempt from taxation ?
Why is it, more than other private
investments, entitled to exemption ?
We hope that we shall never be
found among those who are in
clined to prevent, or even hinder,
industrial progress and material
development in the South. But we
frankly say that we cannot see the
justice of that law which exempts
from taxation capital invested in
any private enterprise. The men
who are able to invest capital in
cotton mills are the very persons
who are best able to pay taxes.
A, who puts $20,000 into a cotton
mill withdraws that amount from
the taxable property of the County;
while B, his unfortunate neighbor,
who owns nothing but a house and
lot valued at $3,000, is required to
pay taxes on his property to sup
port the government that protects
A in the enjoyment of his stocks.
Under the law exempting cotton
mills in this State from taxation
for the term of ten years, the State
and Counties have refunded to the
manufacturing companies the sum
of $21,204; this, too, in spite of the
fact, that they have "protection
enough" in their natural advan
The Northern mills have pro
tection in the shape of high tariff
duties; the mills of our State have
protection in exemption from taxa
tion. There is a difference in de
gree, but we can descry no differ
ence in rinciple.
The delegates to the County Con
vention, on the 14th of June,should
come prepared to say whether
there shall be two State Conven
tions, cr whether delegates to the
national convention shall be elect
ed, and the State ticket nominated,
at the samre convention.
While we think that County offi
cers should be nominated by con
vention, there is no likelihood that
a change will be made this year,
and it is hardly probable that a
change will be proposed in the
The delegates might also give
some attention to the question
whether the convention on the 14th
should elect delegates to both
State Conv-entions-taking it for
granted that there will be two
and to the Congressional nomi
nating convention. If there is to1
be a State Convention later than
June, to nominate a State ticket, it
seems proper that we should hold
a County Convention later than the
14th of June, to elect delegates.
The Abbeville Press and Banne,
having ascertained that a majority
of the negroes in the Penitentiary
have been to school, concludes that
education does not improve the ne
gro. By inquiring still farther-, our
contemporary would doubtless find
that the majority of the convicts of
this State have been to church, pos
sibly are members of the church;
would it therefore conclude that
Christianity does not ~improve the
negro ? It is just as fair to assume
that the negro who I-as been to
church is a Christian, as to assume
that the negro who has been to school -)
The jury law of this State ex
empts more than twenty classes of
persons from serving on the juries.
Some of our contemporaries think
that this law is one of the primary
causes of the unsatisfactory results
of trial by jury, and should there.
fore be repealed. While we see no
good reason for exempting some of
these classes, school trustees for in
stance, from jury service, we think
that we must look elsewhere for the
unsatisfactory results of trial by
jury. As a rule, we think the ver
dicts of our juries fairly represent
the moral sentiment of the coin
munity; and when that sentiment is
sound and healthy we may look for
satisfactory results from trial by

STATE SENATOR. Will you accept the
position if we elect you? Let us hear
from you. VOTERS.
N. B. Answer through all the pa
pers of this County.
Before complying with the request
contained in the above complimentary
language, I hope that I may be allowed
to say that I am totally ignorant of
this movement-of its origin, or of the
names of any of the persons connected
with it, as not the least intimation has
ever been given to me that such a meth
od would be employed to draw me out
on this subject. For this reason, I
highly appreciate the compliment as I
do all expressions of kindness coming
from my fellow citizens. The well
done, so heartily given to a faithful
public servant by those whom he rep
resents, is to be prized far above silTer
and gold. Numbers of my friends have
frequently urged me to be a candidate
for State Senator from this County, and
others have asked that I should also al
low my name announced in the papers.
For various reasons,if I kiow my own
heart, I did not desire any position
from the people at this time ; but while
this is true, for other reasons,there lay
back of all this a feeling that I might
be, and that perhaps I ought to be, a
candidate for the Senate. Therefore
when my friends appealed to my pa
triotism to lay aside any objections I
might have in the matter and repeated
ly urged me to become a candidate, I
frankly replied that I would, but we
need not be in a great hurry to have
the fact announced in the papers. But
it appears now that this matter should
be delayed no longer, as it seems that
some are in doubt as to what Ishall do.
Therefore I will say to the "Voters"
making this inquiry, and to all others
concerned, that if elected to the posi
tion indicated, that I will accept it,
and serve the people to the best of my
Having been a member of the Legis
lature for four years, I stand ready to
give an account to the "people" of my
stewardship as their servant ; and I ask
them as an act of kindness on their
part towards me, their servant, to sus
pernd judgment on any of my acts, or
on any reports that are now in circula
tion, or that may hereafter be put in
circulation calculated to injure me,
until I have had an opportunity to be
heard. The people should remember
these three things :
1st-That there are two sides to
every question, or report.
2nd-That there is such a thing as
telling the truth, without telling the
3rd-And that misrepresentations
are very common things in our day es
pecially in regard to candidates.
I am sensible of the fact that no man
wsho is thoroughly selfish,, who is not
able to lay aside his prejudices and
feeling of self interest. andl labor for
the public good, or who seeks or de
sires position, simply to make it the
stepping stone to something else, can
ever make a statesmsa in the true
sense of that word. The lawful in
terests of all. of Cuanty and State in
this instance, must be protected and
protected in such a way as to produce
as little clashing as possible. Justice
must be given to every citizen, so that
persons of every class, profession and
ncupation may be prosperous and con
tented, so far as good and wholesome
aws can make them so, that the rich
ad the poor together may work har
oniously ZIer the up-building of their
:ommon country. I am therefore fully
nware that the responsibility to be im
posed upon mec if elected State Sena
or is a heavy one, as ini that Body it
~requently occurs that laws both good
tud bad are made or unmade by a sin
gle vote (saying nothing of the influ
ance that one member may have over
>hers) and that these laws are sent
yut, so to speak, to be a blessing or a
rurse to hundreds and ev-en thousands
>t men, women and children. For the
proper discharge of such responsibili
;ies and duties a clear head, a dliscrimi
ating judgment andl an impartial
nind backed up by a conscientious
~ense of duty and a lofty patriotism
re all require d.
I do not pretend to say that I pos
ess these qualitications and talents.
nd I rejoice that the responsibility of
leciding this important matter is not
nine, nor that of any particular class,
)nt that it strictly belongs to the
people, to those to whom the offices be
nag, and that I am prepared to say
hat I shall most heartily concur in
myI decision fairly made by the people.
No one, not even our fair-minded en
'mies, will pretend to deny but what
he Democratic party has done a great
nud good work for the State of South
arolina since 1876. But while this is
rue, there are other things that ought
o b)e done in order to give the p)eople
hat relief to which they are justly en
itled and whic-h they have a right to
leiand of those whom ther select t .
lo their wvork in the Halls of Legisla
ion. I propose during the coming
ampaign, if the people desire it, not
ly to discuss the familiar quest ions
>f the day, but to bring to their notice
omne of the changes alluded to above,
vhich if made, will give relief, where
elief is greatly needed, and at the
name time will be robbing no citizen
f that which justly belong.s to him.
In conclusion. I thank my fellow
:itizens for what they h2ave in the past
lone for me, for the e ncouraging words
nd flattering complimentsgiven to me
rom time to time, and I now assure
hm, whether elected or not, that
vatever I can do for my native Countyv
md State will be most cheerfully done.

BETTY POPLIN'S LETTER.
DEAR PETER : I fear you will
stigmatize me as most delinquent
about replying to your kind mis
sive. I have been waiting to see
what could be done for you-hence
my delay. My parents think me
rather too young to begin the voy
age of life with you just yet; and
then I can't do up my back hair
yet. And I am also suffering with
the gout in my right hand and big
toe. It is useless for me to at
tempt to enumerate my other va
rious afflictions, such as a dearth of
good frocks, and wearable shoes.
I think the proverb that is general

applicable to me just now. Indeed
you can't come to see me; you know

something about myself, my looks,
my beaux, and also about my big
sis. It is very impolite to tell you
about myself first. so I will tell you
about her; and then I want to save
the best for the last myself. My
sis is tall and slim, rather angular,
and rather a hard case; else rather
hard up for fashionable togge ry
and boys; she has one fellow that
hangs around but I am inclined to
think it will end in gass, you just
ought to see her when lie comes
around on Sunday evening to see
her and then goes off without ask
ing her to go to church-she comes
in with a sickly grin on her visage
and vows she does not think the
boys down hecre are worth shaking
out; but remarks that she did not
want to go anyway and in her se
cret soul she is dying to go and I
know it but nev-er let on. Now I
am going to confide a secret to you

ingly beautiful-but alas it was as
false as the mist of morn that v-an

contention to the whole family;

has always been noted for her fine
garden, but never before has such
an extensive planting been done.

LETTER FRO3 THE SICK MAN.
CoLUBmI, S. C., May 4th, 1884.
We left Newberry Friday after
noon for Columbia, and reached the
charming city without a mishap
and pleasantly. This is the first
experience of home leaving since
our release from active duty and
it saddens us when we think of the
necessity which interdicis work
that -Othello's occupation's gone.
"Hang Ul)p the fiddle and the bow,
Lay down the shovel and the hoe."
We trust it will not be long though
ere we will be able to resume our
wonted place in life's drama. It is
hard after so long a period to lay I
aside the roll of usefulness and as
sume a life of idleness, and we fear
that we will fall into lazy habits.
A retrospection of the past tells us
that we have been forty-six years in
a printing office-almo. a half cen
tury. From office boy and all along
the line of type setting up to the
harder and we must say less re
munerative position of proprietor
and editor to the present time.
What an experience we have had,
how much we have seen, how much
endured, and how many episodes
have fallen to our lot. But it is not
our aim to speak of these things
now, it would tax our shattered
brain to attempt to recall the past,
and to pick out here and there some
of the many things, which lie stored
away ou memory's tablet-some
other time, may be, we will turn over
its leaves and cull a fragment or
two. Now we must neither work,
nor spin-a yarn, -the doctor says
so, and our own feelings tell us - of 1
the correctness of the advice. A
word or two, or may be three, we
will not consider in the light of
work, but rather in the light of ree
Well, we arrived in Columbia,
and were soon much at home at
the beautiful cottage home occupied
by our son in-law, Mr. A. C. Jones.
We feel better than when we left
and this is much, very much. Four
weeks, ago we never thought of being
in Columbia, or any other city,
except the one made '-by hand eter
nal in the Heavens." How incru
table are the ways of Providence,
and "past all finding out."
Columbia looks charming at
this time, "all dressed in living
green," and is at all times one of
the most attractive cities we think
in the Union, New Haven, Coni.,
not excepted, and her citizens are
hospitable, kind, clever and intelli
gent. Improvement is the watch
word here, everything and every
one is looking upward, and although
there seems to be a perfect stagna
tion in businees, hope fills the heart
with joyful anticipations of the fu
ture. One of the most noted im
provements is seen in the Shiver 1
buildirtg; this has been completely
over-bauled and under the magic
influen1ce of the money of those sue
cessfui and energetic Dry Goods
merchants, Messrs. Desportes &
Edmunds, has been converted into
two magnificent commercial rooms
of extensive proportions, the corner
one occupied by :he firm just named
and the other by our long esteemed
friend, M. L. Kinard, and filled with
the largest, finest and best selected
stock of clothing in the city.
We have already called on and
seen many good friends, whose
sterling v,orth has been revealed
through a long course of intimate
acquaintance, among whom we
name the brothers Jackson, E. E.
the pill and plaster compounder,
and C. J., the leader of low prices
in D)ry Goods andl Clothing. We
would not torget Mr. W. C. Swaf
field; this gentleman now occupies
much larper an more comfortable
quiartzrs than he did a few month::
back. lie will now take your meas
ure and fit you to an elegant suit
of clothes in the store lately occu
pied by Mr. M. L. Kinard. We
are glad to see that he is looking up,
and that he is filled with some of
that hope alluded to above. He is
one of the largest and most popular
insurance agents in the city.
A little on-dit hatched out in the
Secretary of State's office, and
which got into the possession of the
reliable gcntlcman who gave it tot
us is worth the writing andI will
prove interesting to the friends of
the gentleman to whom itrelates and
not unacceptable to the gentleman
himself. IIere it is: State Treas
urer, Mr. J. P. Richardson, in con
nection with others,said in speaking
of the work of his office, that Coun
ty Trreasuirer M. II. Gary had the

county excepted. That it was fin
ished when it came to 1im. not a
change to be made, not a fraction
to be returned to Mr. Gary, nor a
fraction short. To the p)ride of our
County Treasurer we mention this
and hope that he will see no cause
to be ofP ided at it being made pub
The alarm sounded this morning
about three o'clock for a third or
fourth class fire, which took plzce
below the C. & G. depot. and like
our late Newberry fire nearly burned
out before water could be had, the
damage was slight, one negro house.
but the alarm was great. The fire
system here is p)erfect, and when
water can be had a fire seldom
makes much head way. We will re- I
main here a few (lays in hope of
gaining strength, and then we ex
pect to visit Charleston for another
few days, taking in the meeting of
the Press Association and whatever t
of innocent "-junketing" be mixed I
up with it; and then reader, with a 1
modicum more of strength gained,
we will ventuie North and visit
Stratford, Conn., going with Mrs.

time this month. We have written

rho suffer like I did. I was poisoned by
'oison Oak, and saw not a well day for six
'ears, util I used Swifi's Specific. In the

hat awful poison left !

JOSEPH BEASLY, Columbus, Ga.
I have had remarkable success with Swift's

be most remarkable case of all was a lady

had no hope whatever. After using one
