Tho Stato Convention of tho Greenback
party mot in Columbia last week. Wo pub?
lieh tho platform of tho party and tho names
of their nominees in this numbor of tho
OOURIER. Tho material of tho convention
as roportod was of a charnolor, taken ns n
Nvholo, to discourage nny party or FCt of men.
8omo of tho del?galos aro good men, but
most of tho material was of a light order.
Nearly oVSry county in tho Stuto was repro
sontod, sonic of tho delegates being colorod.
Tho strength of tho Oroenbaokors in tho
Stato does not amount to very much. Bul if
tho Republican Stato Convention, which mot
in Columbia on tho 12th instant, should en
dorso and support tho ticket nominate 1 by
tho Grccnbnokcrs tho coalition would make a
show of strength at least. This will demon
strate, if it takes plano, stronger than any
thing oleo, that tho Grccnhnckcrs aro wolvos
in sheep's clothing, vuting and consortia g
together politically with tho Republicans.
Mr. Stanton, tho nominee of the conven*
t?on for Treasurer of tho Stato, is a man nf
eubstanco, and has resided in Seneca fur
aovoral years. Wo understand ho is a
native Goorgian. Wo arc sorry to soo him

A-fearful wind and rain storm visited this

continuing pretty much during Sunday. Wo
?oppose, it tu bc tho equinoctial storm of this

from the North than thc East, In some sections
of cur county thcro waa lc^s rain than fell a
week or two ago, whilst in other sections tho
rain fall was heavy, tho streams wcro very
high and much damago has been dono (hereby
to tho growing crops of corn, peas, Sic. Thc
wind was fearful everywhere, blowing down
Ibo oom, fruit trocs, forest trees, &o.
Tho storm was general throughout (he
South ns far ns heard from. In thc low coun
try, where Ibo colton was open in largo
quantities, tho loss is great by reason of it
Having been blown out in (ho sand mid dirt.
Higher up in (he country, where (hore was
less coll?n open, the loss lins boen less. Tho

being blown down and high waler. Fruit and
forest trees havo been blown down all over
the oountry and the loss in this way and to
the crops will aggrcgato many thousands of

Editors of thc Kcomc Courier:
In my last week's communication I dis-?

an expression of their views on tho question.
First. Aro they in favor of tho adoption of
this constitutional amendment?
Scoond. If tho enmo should bo adopted,
aro they in favor of dividing (ho County of
It requiring a two-third vote to adopt tho
amendment by tho next Legislature will
they plodgo themselves, if it should bo

An Interesting Letter from Mr?

SKMSOA CITY, OCONKB COUNTY, S. C.,
September 7th, 1882.
Msssns. KoiTows : Notwithstanding the de
clination Imadoiu I li e Seneca Journal sometime
ago my nomo was still continued to bc published
as a candidato Tor tho Legislature. 1 seo this
week tho announcement la made in tho COUDIKB.
I guess you have authority from somo one to do
so; certainly not from mo nor with my consent.
My friends, like al) friends, aro confident of
success, but I fear they aro indisorcct and have
not surveyed well tho field. Wo should have
candidates who can mount tho stump to refuto
slanders and loeot the opposition which cou?
fronts us, aud who aro able to do orodit lo
themselves and honor lo thi party which thoy
represent. I nm not qualified for such uor
have I ever flattered mysolf into tho belief that
it was possible for mo lo bo oleotcd. 1 am but
a stranger in tho county and there aro many
better known and who will givo generally moro
satisfaction than it is possible for mo under
Oxislillg ci roams! anees.
The posit ion of a representativo of tho propio,
however honorablo, ls net enviable. It is im
possible lo plcoBO all aud suoh responsibilities I
will not sock. Tho public, servant, no mailor
how faithful he may be nor how earnest and
untiring in all his efforts to do right, is a con
stant target for tho disaffcotcd. At his door
too oflon is laid tho cause for tho discontent
which springs up among the masaos.
14 Tho evil mon do lives nftor thom;
Tho good is oft interred with their bones."
lu your issue of August 3]si you havo an
editorial article headed " High Freight Kales,"
which meets tho approval of many of your
readers. Certainly the matter of transportation,
iu connection willi railroad monopoly, deserves
attention. If not tamed in its wild oarcor it
wilt rcdown lo injury, and any party Hint psr
mits aud cominees to permit those usurpations
will go to pieces. Already il is used by tho
opposition lo show that our party is either Bub
sidixed or incilioiont. A railroad partakes of
tho nature of a public highway mid is not
strictly private properly, tho owners being Hie
beneficiaries of tho Stale to thc extent of extra
ordinary privileges granted. Tho pcoplo con
tribute tlicso privileges which arc vastly moro
important than money. When a railroad accepts
a charl er from tho hands of thc Slate it acknow
ledges its public character and accepts thc
responsibility growing oui of ouch acknowledg
ment. If tho Stale has tho right to pass laws
bringing into exislcnco enterprises where tho
people have lo surrender privileges and private
rights, she certainly has tho right to pass laws
regulating those enterprises, lo slop (heir en
croachments and protect thc rights of tho people,
thc source from which all power is derived.
Wo deny that tho creature is greater than (ho
creator. This question should bo freely dis
cussed and agitated, for lhere is danger of tho
Stale getting completely under control of thc
railroads, and if so I fear thc government will
bc a bad ono. I nm miro it will bo hard to
overthrow, for they aro backed by both money
In your last issue of September7lh you have
an article heeded " New Counties" which I am
satisfied meets tho approval of a majority of
our people. You show conclusively by statistics
of population and property that iL would bo
detrimental to givo up nny portion of Oconcc;
certainly ruinous to part with that portion
which is most likely togo. I think (lio position
of Seneca City in this matter is not properly
understood, and in justice lo our citizens will
say thal we disapprove of any division. How
ever if tho constitutional amendment is carried
and division is forced upon us wc will contend
Hint this is thc point for localing tho new county
sile, as wc claim decided advantages over com
peting places mentioned for its location.
There is another question which should enter
into tho canvass. I allude to fencing oil' thc
mountain or stock raising portion of thc county
from thc strictly agricultural portion. I believe
a majority ot our pcoplo arc willing to bc taxed
lo build (ho fence No fair minded man should
objocl, for it is but simple justice to those peo
ple They feel that Ihey have been badly
tronlcd and a returning sense of justice on our
pari will go far towards reconciling them. It
makes no difl'crenco how weak or how few in
number (hey may bc, rights to them nrc as dear
as Ihey aro to tho many or tho powerful. Go
vernment was originally instituted for thc pro
tection of tho weak and those who were unable
to protect themselves, and it fails in its funda
mental principle when it neglects to do so.
Hoping that good men may bc found who arc
well qualified and whose conduct through life
has been such ns tho people generally approve
ns candidates of tho Democratic party, I um

The lalo storm which has swept over tho

corn has been leveled willi tho ground and tho
blades so riddled that fodder saving will scarcely

Ono of tho prettiost, Mouton and moot sub
stantial liouecu of worship in Oconco County
is tho Hopewell Mothodist Church, which
hasju8t boen recently complotod. The size
of tho church is 00x40. PophupB it would
bo interesting to relato an incident just hore
which gavo ruo, no doubt, to tho determina
tion on part of tho peoplo of this neighbor
hood to oreot this church. In Match ur April,
1870, during a quarterly oonforonco, which
was being hold in tho old church building,
near by, tho wind was blowing furiously
upon tho bond of Ibo preacher through a
largo hole in tho house ju-t behind Iii m. So
uncomfortable and disagreeable did tho wind
become, that tho preacher stopped preaching
and nt ulled his hat in the bolo to ward oil
tho wind and called to tho preacher in charge
of tho circuit and informed him that ho must
never aek for another quaitorly conference
at this place until ho had a com tort able and
decent church to hold ono in. Shortly after
this event a fow m oin hers of tho church and
its friends began preparations tooroot a now
church not far from where tho old building
stood. Not having any money, or at Joaot
very little, tho progress was very slow.
Through tho onorgy and indomitable porse
vornnco of a fow friends, however, after a
battlo of throo yearn, this beautiful church
stands erect, upon a firm foundation, an or
nament to tho county, and a beautiful testi
monial to ihoco who labored sn dilligontly
withont foo or reward, to its accomplishment.
A gentleman has fun.?shed us a tow items
how this church was built with scarcely any
money. All tho mutorinl for tho churoh was
donntod and dolivorcd on tho spot, oxcopt
about 7i kegs of nails, which cost $35 05.
304.1 days of hired labor wits employed which
cost $301.29, whioh nddod to $35.05 tor tho
nails, makes ?336.01, tho actual money paid
out on tho chinch. Tho cost of all tho ma
terials d livered on tho spot for tho church
was about ?903-75. Tho cost of tho work
donated was estimated ut about $1,000, tho
avcrogo prico allowed per day being 50 cents.
Tho largest contributors to tho church wcro
Mr. Thomas Jenkins, who gavo about $285,
and Mr. M. A. Oiltncr, who contributed
about $282. Mr. P. S. Jenkins, Mr. John
Piokons and other noble spirit* gavo liberally,
but wo did not get their estimates. Thus it
will bo soon that hero is u church, if it had
been lot out by contract, would havo cost no
