Columbia brings us face tu face with a
condi?i"'.? i'f affairs which is not only
disgraceful to us as a people, but
which, unless speedily checked, will
cause our very civilization itself to
fall into ruins.
The number of murders that have
been committed in South Carolina in
thc past twenty-five years is simply
appalling, and if anything could pos
sibly bc worse than tin.' crime itsolf it
is the fact that a very iarge propor

have escaped punishment and to-day
are at large, when they ought, had

it is in any other State or country,
but his lifo is practically at thc mercy
of any armed ruffian who chooses to
take it in revenge for some imaginary
affront. Things have reached such a
pass in this State that a man can,
provided he has influence and friends,
with much greater immunity from
punishment, take thc life of his neigh

Rivery man of ordinary intelligence
is familiar with thc adage that "Thc
law is no respecter of persons," but in
this State, at Ica^t, thc expression has
no meaning, for it has been demon

law, is a very great respecter of per

Hut some otic may say that, grant
all this to bo true, why should wc

tunately it needs no advertisement,
for it has already advertised itself
very much to the detriment of the
good name of the State. So far from
being an extenuation or an excuse for
crime, thc fact that it is committed
by a man of intelligence or high social
position should ouly aggravate the

made he should bc more severely pun

committed the same crime.
What is really needed is not the
enactment of more laws, but the en

Darlington, January 20.
A Costly 1'est.
Tho United States Department of
Agriculture bas just issued the r?port
(Bulletin No. Iti3) of Mr. W. 1). Hun
ter, special ugent, on tho Mexican cot
ton boll weevil. It contai us matter
of much importance to the cottou
growing interest of this country and
recites some facts of even wider CL-U
The pest in question lint appeared
in Texas only eight years ago, in 1891,
and it is confined to that State MO far
as known. The territory covered by
it, however, includes more than a
fourth (28 per cent) of thc cotton
acreage of tho United States, which
produced a third of the total crop of
the world in that year. It includes
all the twenty-two counties which in
1899 produced 40,000 bales or more
The estimates of the damage effect
ed by the insect in 1902 range from
235,000 to 500,000 bales; representing
from $8,000,000 to $25,000,000. It is
well within the bounds of conserva
tion to say that the loss for that year
alone was at least $10,000,000; tho
insect, therefore,' "is among the most
formidable menaces to an agricultural
industry that ever arose in this coun
try or elsewhere." Tuo much care, it
would appear, cannot be observed by
tho guardians of thc agricultural in
terests of other States to prevent the
pest from spreading speedily beyond
tho territory it already occupies.
The Bulletin remarks, however, that
in spite of the generally serious out
look, "it is not necessary to abandon
cotton" wheu tho insect appears.
'"Tho experience of many counties in
Texas shows how a locality can, in a
short time, adapt itself to tho new
system of cotton raising made neces
sary by tho weevil," and the system
is of interest to all cotton growers, as
it is certain that all of them will soon
havo to employ it. Tho post is "con
stantly spreading/' and, baaing the
estimate of its progress on tho annual
spread in Texas, it is regarded as
"safe to prediot that in from fifteen
to eighteen yoars it will be a aerioua
drawbaok to cotton culture every
where throughout the South, as it ia in
Texas now. There are no influences
that can oheokit short of the limit of
its food plant." No machine, or
other device, no poison, and no tempt
ing bait (as ootton seed meal) to divert
it, has been found effective. The
Egyptian varieties are "particularly
susceptible," and the "sea island"
ootton in Texas has been found to be
subject to it. "No known variety of
ootton is immuno," not even the tree
ootton of Mexico.
The Bulletin gives some specific
recommendations, based on the ex
periments of the Department and the
experienoe of many ootton planters in
Texas, by following whioh "a profi
table orop oan be produced in any
situation where the boll weevil oc
curs." Late cotton, wherever grown,
is oertain to be injured; the object
is to mature thc crop as early as prac
ticable. The recommendations are in
I. Plant early; if possible, the aced
of varioties known to mature early. At
least obtain seed from as far uorth as
possible. Better run tho risk of re
planting than to have the crop delay
ed. At no place in Northern Texas
should planting bo later than about
II. Cultivate the fields thoroughly.
The ohicf benefit of thia comes from
"the constant growth and consequent
early uiaturity of tho crop. Very few
weevils aro killed by cultivation.
Muob of thc benefit of early planting
is lost if not followed by thorough
III. Destroy by ploughing up, piling
and burning all ootton stalks in the
fields not later than the first week in
October. A lalo "top crop" will cost
the planter dearly tho next seoson.
IV. Plan? the rowa as far apart as
is poaaible and thin out the plants in
the rows thoroughly.
Finally, it is noted, "anything that.
can bo done in the way of protecting
birds, like the quail, whioh are known
to feed on the weevil, will undoubted
ly be of advantage."
The Bulletin oan be obtained free of
cost by applying to the Secretary of
Agriculture.-News and Courier.

Dj im: in Their Hoots.
Some yours ugo ii wu* siidof the |
Alston futility of this State that, the)
wore famous for dying io their boots.
Tillmaus of KdgcGcld have a record
in this respect. William Tillman, thc
oldest brother of Senator Tillman, was
killed in battle at Mexico. Oliver Till
man, another brother, was shot to
death by Andrew Neel in Florida while
eating dinner at a hotel. Neel escap
ed from jail, weut to Mississippi, was
a trial justice there in 1871, and was
finally killed inh?B yard by a young
man who was courting his daughter.
John Tillman, another of tho Tillman
brothers, was shot by George Mays, a
kinsman and neighbor, while driving
along the road in the piney woods
near tho homes of both men. This
tragedy occurred before the war.
John Tillman lived several days and
died in great agony. Ile wasa hand
some anda brilliant man, but reckless
in conduct. Geo. D. Tillman, the
late congressman and eminent states
man, stood on the streets of Hdgcticld
unarmed, when a young mau, approach
ed and opened his bosom in bold de
fiance of General Weaver who fired on
him until a friend handed him a pis
tol. Neither man was hurt. Some
time after that this George D. Till
man killed a man by thc name of
Christian at Edgefield. This was a
most unfortunate affair and one which
weighed heavily on Mr. Tillman
throughout his long life.
Now the last act in tho bloody dra
ma is thc killing of editor N. G. Gon
zales by James H. Tillman, eldest son
of tho late George D. Tillman, on the
streets of Columbia. This final trag
edy is not in keeping with the record
of the Tillman family if the published
statements of the shooting of Mr.
Gonzales be true. Gonzales was un
armed and had slightly changed the
direction of his course to avoid corning
in too close contact with Tillman when,
without a word of warning, a pistol
was thrust at him and a ball sent
through his body. And then again
was thc murderous weapon presented
to repeat its deadly work when Gon
zales cried "Shoot again, you coward ."
In the presence of a defenseless, but
brave man already shot to death, Till
mau lowered his pistol and walked
However great thc wrong or deep
and cutt iug the injury that may have
been done Mr. Tillman by Editor Gon
zales where is there a man in the light
of civilization who can do aught but
condemn such an act? A cold deed that
takes from the world,familyand friends
the life of an unarmed and a defense
less man without notice that his life
is about tobe taken. To avenge a
wrong, blood is shed, innocent people
are irreparably? injured, the name of
the State held up to the severe criti
cism of the country and the life of the
slayerruined. This is the result of
the dire oalamity which has befallen
the people of this State.-Greenwood
