THURSDAY, NOV. 20, 1890.
The Legislature
Of South Carolina will convono in
annual BOBSIOU noxt Tuosday. In some
respects it will bo ono of tho most import
ant aOonivntt O? tho Guttural AbaOinbly in
tho history of tho Stato, bocauso of tho
gravo and weighty mattors that will
Hkoly domand legislativo action. Tho
various measures of reform, so long advo
cated by our pooplo, and extensively dls
CUBBcd during tho rccont campaign, which
t ailed anow to thom tho attention of tho
public, will como up for consideration
and solution.
Ever sinco '70, whoo tho Democratic
party rcdoomcd tho Stato from tho foroign
foo and native traitor, tho pooplo. havo
been demanding economy, retrenchment
and roform. Wo havo constantly urged
economy in public expenditures, reduc
tion 'Of Balarles and of ofllcos. Hut dur
ing all theso yoars thoro has boon little,
if any, change in our system of govern
ment, and consequently very littlo practi
cal roliof to tho pooplo from tho burdons
of taxation. The troublo all along hos
boon, not with tho mon who administered
bur laws, hut with our system of govern
ment. Tlio timo, however, lias at last
como "for a change, ami if tho present
Legislature earnestly undertakes tho
tnsk, however difficult it may bo, wo
-louk for much substantial i in pro veiner, t.
A largo majority of this Legislature liavo
boon elected on roform issues, mid conse
quently tho pooplo look to thom for
Borne measures of practical relief. If
much is dono wisely and well along this
lino, it vdll doubtless require a longer
session than usual; but the time and
. monoy would ho profitably spent could
tho desired purpose bo accomplished.
Without attempting anything like an
oxbaustive statement of these measures,
wo doom it propor to state some of Ibo
most important.
. First in importance, as we see it, will
bo thu question of calling a Constitu
tional Convention, to give us a new
organic law. Tho September Stato Con
vention declared Itself in favor of tho
call, saying: "We believe tho present law
a standing menace to our civilizat ion and
??pour educational institutions, and that
wo cannot obtain any great relief from
our burdensome taxes till this is done,
and wo havo lost faith in tho power to
amend tho present constitution so that it
will answer the requirements." Tho
reasons for tho call being many and
potent, tiley aro stated only in a general
way in tho above declaration. This is
Biifllcient to hujhvare the will of thc peo
plo^ij^?L4\Y??fr desire for a new draft of
VTfflforgaiiic law, made by our own peo
ple, to meet our present necessities, lt
is true that snould this Legislature
recommend the call hy the requisite two
thirds of the members elected lo each
branch, slill the question must he sub
mitted to thc pooplo at tho general elec
tion in I sir.!, and a popular majority then
declaring in the affirmative, the next ses
sion of the (Jouerai Assembly shall pr?
vido by law for calling the same. This
- course may ho long and tedious, yet it
will give ample time for thu pooplo to
discuss the needed changes, and sett le, in
a measure, upon some of the fundamental
principles of the new constitution.
Another important matter that will
claim attention is tile phosphate inter
ests of the State. It is probable that a
survey and classification of the phos
phate beds will be provided for, and a
system of mining, under rigid rules,
dc vised, lt is to bc hoped that no salo
of the Slate's phosphate beds will be
made, thereby enabling strong combina
Hons and trusts lo he formed, to tho
great detriment of the farmers who
wbuldjio foieed to pay higher juices for
their fertilizers. This phosphate busi
ness should be set lied on sound business
principles, and in such a way as to pre
j vent tho formation of trusts and com
bines on fertilizers. Capt. Tillman spent
scvoral days in Charleston last week
gathering dala ami information from
"headquarters" concerning the phos
phate industry. He is giving the matter
a personal investigation, so that he may
t bo able lo make some practical recom
mendation to the Legislature on the sub
ject.
It is probable that the law regulating
tho Railroad Commission will bo amended,
HO that larger powers will be given to
tho Commission to regulate tho railroad
trafile in tho Stale, and providing for Ibo
election of the Commissioners by the
people. This is a difllcult matter lo
regulate properly by legislative enact
ment, but tho best is expected in the
way of protooting tho rights of the peo
ple, without crippling or injuring thc
railroads.
A hill will probably he presented to
abolish the board of Agriculture, and to
devolve upon the Hoard of Trustees of
Clemson College the duties now per
formed hy this board. The Agricultural
Stations and everything pertaining to
iv%?fc agriculture or mechanics or industrial
education will probably be put in charge
of tho Trustees of tho Clemson College,
thereby wisely making this institution
tho center thc system for imparting a
practical knowledge of the science of
agriculture.
Tho public school system of the Stato
Will likely claim attention. There is a
growing demand throughout tho State
that (he school districts be red maid to an
area sufficient lo allow one white and
one colored school separate in each dis
trict, and that the School Trustees bc
elected by the people. These districts
havo already been formed in Oconco
under tho careful supervision of School
Commissioner Stribling and the Hoard
of Examiners, and when once tho people
become familiar with the change it is
believed the new system will prove much
mero officient and satisfactory than tho
i old.
Again, the people look to this Legisla
' turo for some reduction of the largo sala
ries of Stato officers, and expect that rigid
economy shall govern all provisions for
public expenditures,
These and many other malters of im
portance will task to tho utmost the
capacity of our legislators, and insure
for them a session ol karil work.

Judge Morton for Ite-Elcctlou.
Hoiis J. J. Norton, J migo of tho Eighth
Judicial Oirouit of South Carolina, will
bo roolootod hy tho ensuing Legislature
without ?ny opposition, so far na known
atproBcut. Hi? drat torin of four years
is drawing to a eloso, but ho will doubt
less ho mado his own successor for four
years moro.
His record as a Circuit Judgo has boon
a credit to South Carolina, a State which
stands in tho forefront of American
Commonwealths for tho learning and
uprightness of hor Judges. His deci
sion's in all appealed eases have stood tho
test of tho Supromo Court remarkably
well. In nlmost overy caso his rulings
and decrees havo boon affirmed, either
wholly or in part, reversal being a raro
oxcoption. Hut tho most of his opinions
hoing in such strict conformity to tho
law, very few aro tho number of appeals
(aleen fruin his decisions.
His services on tho bene)? for tho past
four years show that ho is peculiarly
llttod for tho duties of a Circuit Judgo
of South Carolina. With intellect and
learning, which qualify him to deal with
thc sootiest principies and must intricate
questions of thu law, Iiis patient and
pains-taking consideration of overy ense,
ran li liim high among the Judges of tho
Stato, which has always boen justly
proud of hor judiciary. His diligence
and accuracy, patience and urbanity,
firmness and dignity make him most
acceptable to tho bar in tho discharge of
tho varied and exacting duties of a
Circuit Judge, whether on the civil or
criminal side of the court.
Such is tho estimate placed upon his
character and ability as a Circuit Judge,
both by Hie har and the people of tho
Slate, that ?tis probable he will be elected
his own successor hy tho ensuing Legis
lature without any opposition.
Mr. J. II. Karie, Jr., for Superin
tendent of the Penitentiary.
The peuple of Oconco take great plea
sure in recommending Mr. J. lt. liarle,
Jr., of Fair Play, for the position of
Superintendent nf the Penitentiary. Mr.
Karlo is uno of our most enterprising
and successful young farmers. Having
received a liberal education at thc South
Carolina College, ho devoted himself to
farming, bringing to this most important
of vocations a well-trained mind and
enlarged business capacity. This tho
rough preparation has borne it? najural
fruit, and to-day Mr. Karie is 0110 of the
foromost young farmers-of tho county.
His executive ability is good, fitting Ililli
in a peculiar manner for tho responsible
duties of .Superintendent of thu Peniten
tiary, being about thirty years old, of
ripe judgment, superior business capa
city, and withal energetic and industri
ous, wo feel nu h?sitation in heartily
recommending him tu the approaching
Qoneral Assembly for election.
Mr. Karie is a prominent anti influen
tial Alliaiicoman, and the Oconco County
Farmers' Alliance is a unit in urging his
election, as is shown by the following
resolution :

DKAK COUHIKH : Tho lust rose of
summer has como and gone, and we
are enjoying the most auspicious lu
dinn Bummer extant after so much
inclement wet weather. Tho farm
ers are making good usc of it in
gathering the llcecy staple and other
crops. Indeed, tho weal lier is with
out a parallel, thc mercury register
ing away uti towards midsummer!
The delightful ripplinga of thc Tu
galoo, sparkling, musical and transpa
rent, make us lo feel that wc arc
largely compensated for our losses,
while thc temperature, is so inviting
that tho aquatic can en joy a plunge
equal lo surf bathing. Cleanliness
is next to Godliness, you know.
This reminds us that California pro
poses to give hor tourists a "surf
bath" in thc morning and laud them
among the snow and icc ?ii tho even
ing! Knpid tram?t and altitude
enables this fast agc to accomplish
and utilize this romantic feat, and
tho lovers ol' Saratoga and the
far-famed Niagara will lind a compe
ting interest in thc Golden Stale,
where spring never ends und winter
never begins.
This is an agc ol' improvement.
Let her roll. Thc Kl berton
Air lane is under contract for
a wide gauge. Thia will enable this
road to get better freight rates and
to ship through without change and
when this is mado a broad gauge and
connects with thc C. G. & N. road
at Klherton there will be a boom
along this linc. And what hinders a
road from Westminster to Andorson
villc, via Lowndesville lo McCor
mick, giving a competing linc willi
Elberton Air I/me ? lt" this is not
done Western Oconco and Anderson
will bc left. The timber, whit h
never will lie ll ti I i/.od until a railroad
is built, would go far towards build
ing tho road. The new road, C. G.
& N., soon to euler as' a great com
peting trunk line with thc Air Uno
and thc C. C. A., is another link in
favor of thc "Westminster and Mc
Cormick li. il." Two good terminais
ought to build a wide gauge road
when there would not bc a trestle
from Westminster tn Aiulcrsoiivilic
j-half thc distance. The foregoing
train of thought would nt forntor
titucs hnvo heon considered oxtromo
viows, hut now under tho tidal wavo
of progresa thoy seem to bo feasible
and practicable"
So tho election of Tillman never
could have taken placo until tho way
was paved undor tho promise of re
form, and now tho oleotton is ovor
and T>. U. Tillman is our Governor,
a moro quiet and satisfactory ro
sult never has taken place in' any
canvass "since tho war," and it
seems that instead of dividing tho
party we only st and tho moro united,
and tho Democracy of South Caro
lins means a solid phalanx, by winch
Independents aro buried too deon to
bo over resurrected by tho hand of
division, discord or disunion. And
now Tillman takes tho Gubernatorial
chair with as much grace as any of
his predecessors and more so, "inas
much" as ho promises a reform, a
long-felt need, all of which seem to
bo only casting their shadows before
coming events. Wo will see.
Respectfully,
U. V. K.

DKAH CouitlBR : Tho farmers arc
nearly done picking cotton and
gathering corn. Wheat sowing is
thc order of tho day, although seed
wheat is so scarce that tho farmers
uro deprived of sowing as much as
they desire, lt is thought that next
year will ho an unusual good wheal
year.
The election passed off very
quietly at our precincts Tillman re
ceived forty-two, while Haskell oidy
received one. This a good showing
for this community and it can Ito
seen at a glamic that our people aro
pure Htraighiout Democrats.
?lr. W. D. Stribling is talking of
moving to Westminster in tho near
future. Wc have not yet learned
Iiis object, but wo wish him success
in whatever bc undertakes.
While in Seneca the oilier day wc
met up with our friend, "?lustier,"
and enjoyed a few hours conversa
tion with him. Wo lind that George
has a paying position in tho blore of
Adams Uros., and WO wish him suc
cess.
The railroad, which has so long been
talked about, is now being surveyed
out through this neighborhood, but
ibis little start does not remind us of
a completed road with its daily pas
sengers.
We wonder why some good teacher
don't write to thc trustees about the
school at Gross Roads. This is a
good chance for some ope.
John King, of this neighborhood,
says he bas caught forty-two 'pos
sums this fall with one dog. This is
good hunting, and if any of the boys
think they can heat him, let them
speak.
Wc arc looking for a good lime,
for wo have heard of several wed
dings lo take place about Christmas,
and if lhere arc wc will have the
pleasure of bracing up and saying
"a chance for us yet."
Nun TODD.
Store Your Coll?n and (.'cl Your
Price.
Thc Codon Phnit this week will
say editorially :
It is important that every farmer
who stores cotton in Alliance Ware
houses should put sonic limit of ju ice
upon his product. In other words,
when you store your cotton, put your
price on it, and authorize thc mana
ger lo sell whenever a buyer oilers
that ligure for it.
This will greatly facilitate matters,
should ll buyer from a distance want
a lot of cotton of a certain grade,
and should look through the ware
bouse with a view of buying. Buyers
would bc induced to make special
trips to the warehouses, if they knew
that thc manager could sell them a
car load of cotton, after the price
was agreed upon, without having to
run around over thc country and
trade with a dozen diff?rent men
perhaps.
More than this,-if it were known
that tho manager had his cotton
graded, and was prepared to quote
prices on car load lots of any desired
grade, buyers from all over the coun
try would bc telegraphing to him to
know whether he bad certain grades
and nt what ligures.
In many cases, too, a eur load of
cotton cou Ul bo sold to a better
advantage-that is, at a higher aver
age price, than could bc bad for a
single bale or a half dozen bales.
In short, wbenover wo get our cot
ton graded and in car load lots, and
it is understood that tho manager is
authorized to sell above the limit
fixed by you, your cotton market
expands beyond tho limits of a little
inland town market, and takes within
its possible scope the markets of thc
Stales, ol' tho United States, of thc
world.
Let the customers at the warehouse
in this county and in every county,
invariably put a reasonable price upon
their cotton when they store it, and
authorize thc manager to scii at or
above that figure.
In my judgment ibis practice con
tains tho germs of direct shipment
of colton to liurope. It is not out
side the range ol possibilities for
consignments of cotton to be made
direct from Alliance Warehouses to
Liverpool and continental points,
it is coining, und coming through
ibo channels of the Alliance.
The day is coming when tho mana
gers of Alliance Warehouses ulong
the Santco, Peedee and other nava
gable waters of our Slate will make
consignments of Alliance cotton
direct lo European ports as regularly
as tin" weeks roll round.
Kine fancy, you say? Well, never
theless, individuals now living in
ibis, Orangeburg county, have ship
ped their cotton to Liverpool direct
al their own risk, and for their own
individual accounts with very satis
factory results. If individual far
mers can do thin, why, pray, should
not the great Alliance Brotherhood
manage it with distinguished success?
lt is n far-reaching scheme; its possi
bilities are bewildering in their scope
-but tho day of destiny is dawning.
True, such a plan will certainly km.ck
out gome "Spots" that Wall Street
has put up; will probably "call"
nomo ".puts, and "put" some "oalls,"
that aro not on tue middle man's
programme-but then, the farmers,
tho producers of tho staple, would
enjoy a larger share of the benefits
of their labors.
Store your cotton; place your
limit on it; tako your placo in the
procession, and get ready for direct
trade in 1891.
