Lock Box No. 116, OrangeTrarg.^S.* C.
A Convention of Famerx'Ottned.
In our last issue we published a pa
per signed by ninety-two rgentlemen
from different sections df ^he State
caUing a convention of farmers to be
held in Columbia on Thtrredaytthe 29th
of next April. This call ?ete?orth the
1st, The farmers being -seventy-six
per cent of the populaticm-dPfhe State,
justly claim that they constitute the
State, and yet they do n<rt -.govern it.
nor are the laws administered ?n their
2d, While their ability torpay. taxes
grows smaller year by yeaT.'these' taxes
do not grow less; nor has any thing
been done to foster and encourage their
3d, While the negroes used'to'be the
mudsills of our economic fabric, :now
thousands of white landowning farm
ers are slowly sinking to be 'added i to
the foundation upon which ??'ow.men
and corporations are erecting fortunes.
4th, Lands are growing poorer year
by year because an insane t-ystem.of
farming prevails which skims (KherStote
by impoverishing the soil, and inrtbing
is done by our Legislature to stop ?t,
or to try to teach a better and wiser
5th, Forty thousand dollars, ttihree-<;
fourths of which is paid by farmers,
are spent annually to educate ui?a tfor
other professions and pursuits, wbile
the farmers get nothing. Even the
small amount given by the national
government to educate farmers is ap
propriate to sustain an educational in
stitution for our future masters.
6th, Twenty-five thousand dollars
are annually paid by farmers alone, to;
sustain an Agricultural Department;
and to coBect phosphate royalty from
which farmers receive no benefit ex
cept a partial protection against fraud
7th, A succession of bad crops and
the consequent poverty of farmers ne
cessitated economy and a reduction of
taxes, yet the last Legislature ignored
this necessity and in addition refused
to provide for a reapportionment of
representatives according to the consti
tution by not holding a census.
8th, The last Legislature, though not
corrupt, has been very neglectful of the
public interest, an? the farmers of the
State cannot 'afford so elect such
another, nor can they allow the Agri
cultural interest to be subordinated to
every thing else.
9th, Other States with less expendi
ture than we are making, are doing ten
times as much to encourage and assist
those engaged in farming.
These are serious grievances, affect
ing the very best interest of our'people
and call for a close and searching in
vestigation at the hands of the conven
tion to be assembled under this call.
This cannot be had unless every coun
ty in the State be represented by its
best men?most progressive and intel
ligent farmers, who will go to Colum
bia thoroughly appreciating the import
ance of the duties to be performed and
the effect which that convention will
have upon the citizens of our State.
Every class of our people feels the em
barrassing circumstances by which we
are surrounded and most earnestly de
sire to see them so adjusted as to re
dound to the benefit of every citizen.
If there be a remedy, let us have it; but
vituperation and recrimination, strife
and division among our people will be
mourned with as much sadness as re
lief will be hailed with gladness. We
trust Orangeburg county will be repre
sented by her best farmers who will
understand that the proper result of
the appointed convention will be relief
from our present ills, but not at the ex
pense of the Democratic party.
Sophist t-y and Bo?h.
We have seldom seen good logic pros
tituted to a more infamous purpose
than in the recent speech of Senator
Edmunds where he labors earnestly to
obscure the true issue between the Sen
ate and President by arguing from
false premises and the use of a most
wretched sophistry. The Vermont
Senator, in his anxiety to teach his Re
publican friends, evidently forgot at
the time that the people understood
already that private letters, whether
on file or next, were not public letters,
and that letters officially address were
not necessarily official letters. Mr.
I'ugh, of Alabama, however in a very
emphatic speech reminded the Senator
that such was the fact and, at the same
time, restated the issue as it was first
made by the llepubbdns themselves.
The verdict of critics is. that the speech
of Senator Edmunds was a most egre
Nor have we ever read, in so .small a
space, so much nonsensical bosh as }<
contained in the speech of Mr. Wilson,
of Iowa, in which he gives a rehash of
the Vermont ideas and, in addition,
presents the original idea that no such
"outrage has been indicted on our citi
zens" as that perpetrated by President
Cleveland in suspending Republican
officials who have been preying upca
the national treasury for more than
twenty years. This remarkable ipi\>
duction is perhaps a high bid for tt3ie
popular ear of Iowa and may succeed,
but will fail to impress even the Ele
publican party as being either manly
in its statement or honest in its mo
tives. If these officials, who are evi
dently removed for misconduct in<oflice
or unfitness to discharge their ftaties,
are to be defended, it ?s well for them
to find a champion who can 'undertake
the business so unblushingly as Sena
tor Wilson. He is a base criminal
indeed who can find no one wiffing to
In the mean time, the position of
President Cleveland remains impreg
nable and is being strengthened daily
by such men as Senators Pugh and
Kenna who will hold the Republicans
to a fair fight or force tihem to;abandon
It will be remembered that v.ihen the
Maine and Logan ticket was nominated
for the Presidency, it created quite a
stench in the nostrils of many leading
Republicans at the North ;and, on ac
count of the silent opposition the tick
et received at the hands of these gen
tlemen, they were designated by the
not very euphonious appellation of
Mugwumps by the faithful. Among
these no one was more sfcabbomly si
lent than Senator Edmunds of Ver
mont who uttered no. word of ?encour
agement and performed .no net-to help
the ticket through the campaige. Such
a want of fidelity to the party has not
been forgotten by the Stalwart Repub
licans, and so plain have been the indi
i cations at home that Mr. Edmunds con
cluded that something must be done
on a grand scale to restore him to fa
vor and to his former position in the
party in order that he might be his own
?successor when his term expires. The
:broadcast removal of officials by Presi
dent Cleveland presented the opportu
nity and the clamor of Republicans for
:an -earnest opposition to so ruinous a
policy called Senator Edmunds to the
foont as the leader of a movement that j
'.v.its (intended to annihilate the Demo
cratic President. The attack was
niade, Mr. Cleveland was berated and
Ms position assaHed ou every side so
satisfactorily until the Vermont Sena
tor (concluded that he had done the
neocLCul thing completely, and there
was no further need of apprehension
on the ^score of his successor. That
evening after enjoying the hospitalities
of the President, joking complacently
and being hail-fellow-well-met with
everybody, retires to bed but only to
rise in the morning to witness the com
plete overthrow of his aerial castle by
the sledge-hammer blows of Senator
Pugh. .Surely man's brightest hopes
are doomed to disappointment and his
best laid plans often go astray.
The PreKM ?ml Public CenKorxhlp.
There was a meeting of Methodist
ministers held in Chicago not long
since to discuss the "Moral influence
of secular journalism." One of the
ministers, Dr. Bushingham, made a
just criticism as to two points. He
"Let one clergyman in a thousand
become a Judas, and a hundred times
more space would be devoted to his
misdeeds than to the good deeds of the
other nine hundred and ninety-nine.
The storekeepers might as well display,
beside his stock of groceries, all the
vile and filthy objects known to the
contraband drug trade. The sickening
developments of a breach of promise
case are given "three-line heads,' and
embellished with wood cuts, accompa
nied by two or three columns of read
ing matter, while the report of some
great moral movement is 'cut down' to
a 'stick' to make room for the more
This is doubtless true as to the large
and influential papers in the Xorth.
We have long doubted if any daily pa
per is fit to be read that dishes up all of
the putrescence and moral filth in the
slums, or even in "our best society."
A brief paragraph is all that pestifer
ous occurrences are entitled to. One of
the Northern religious papers insists
that the "time has come to place legal
restrictions upon newspaper reportorial
work. So monstrously are the daily
newspapers abusing their privileges
that the present interests of society
and the welfare of coining generations
demand a change."
Mr. Dibble and the Turin".
On the first page of this week's paper
we print a letter from the Hon. Samuel
Dibble to the Free Trade Club of South
Carolina on the tariff question. In
this letter Mr. Dibble states his views
[ in a true, unequivocal way, which is
eminently characteristic of the man.
There is no dodging about him, but at
all times and under all circumstances
he is ready to give the reason for the
faith that is in hint. We endorse fully
Mr. Dibble's views on this important
subject, and congratulate our esteemed
Charleston eotemporary,the News and
Courier, un the abandonment of its ul
tra free trade position, assumed two
years ago, as evidenced by its editorial
of last Momhiy. Now that we are all
agreed on the subject let us go to work |
to bring about a sensible ami just re-j
vision of the tunII as soon i\s possible. !
A Strange Verdict.
An interesting case was tried in
Hampton this week. Several years a
the safe of the-county treasurer, M.
Lawton, at the court house was enter
i ed by the use of the combination and
55,000 of the county money was stolen.
J Suit was entered for the amount against
the treasurer and his bondsmen. The
treasurer proved that he was absent in
the county collecting taxes with the
key of the safe in his pocket. It was
on a bunch with the office key, and he
turned over the bunch to a responsible
man who did not know the combina
tion to get some tax receipts blanks.
The keys were left with another citizen
and by him returned to the treasurer,
who, on returning to his office found
the safe open and empty. Only the
treasurer and his assistant, who was
with him in the country, knew the
combination and the key had been only
in responsible hands, but the safe had
been unlocked on the combination and
with a key which fitted. The Hamp
ton court house is an isolated building
fmd nobody is in or near it at night.
The jury found for the treasurer and
his bondsmen, thereby relieving them
of responsibility. There seems to be no
ffround for suspecting anybody of
the theft, but in the face of this verdict
we can't see much use for bondsmen.
Republican newspapers are parad
ing with flaming headlines an array
of Congressional election figures in
Southern districts that have been taken
from the speech of Congressman Golf,
of West Viginia. Mr. Goff spoke on
the pension bill last week, and though
he had only seven minutes in which to
address the house, he obtained permis
sion to print in the Record a long
speech in which he deals in the usual
scalawag argument and endeavors to
make the people of the North believe
that the white Democrats in the South
bulldoze the negroes to such an extent
that the latter can not cast their ballots.
Dr. Henson, of Chicago, said that
there was much fault found with the
good brothers, Jones and Small, and
much carping criticism was indulged
in. Ladies who wore their dresses at
the lower verge of decency announced
themselves positively shocked by the
language indulged in at these meet
ings. The Doctor said that Jones and
Small had! succeeded in waking up
Chicago. They hit the devil straight
out from the shoulder.

act passed at the late session of the
Legislature to permit persons in the
State liable to road duty to pay a com
mutation in lieu of working Ihe road:

ed to labor upon the public roads, which
in no case shall be less than six nor
more than twelve-days in any ono year

tive Counties with the names of all
persons who have paid said commuta

ment may be made.
Sec. 3. That all money so paid in
commutation ot work on the public
roads shall be kept separate from the

More Church Trouble.
The congregation of St. Lukes Epis
copal Church, colored, of Columbia,
have become dissatisfied with their
pastor. Rev. B. B. Babbitt, D. 1)., who
is a white man, and have politely but
emphatically requested him to step
down and out, which he as plainly and
pointedly refuses to do, and there is a
prospect of another church case in the
courts. The principal objection to Mr.
Babbit seems to be that he is white,
and the congregation wants a pastor of
their own color.
As a case of reversion it is noted that
three of John Wesley's great-grandsons
are clergymen of the Church of Eng

I can assure my customers that the "Cres
cent" is the same first-class article It has
ever been since I first introduced it, about
ten years ago. As to chemical excellence 1
would refer to Professor Shepard, who
writes me "I have been favorably acquaint
ed with your Fertilizers through a long
series of years." and as to practical results
the verdict of the crop will sustain the
Commercial value by Georgia Standard
Hundreds of farmers attest the excellence
of the "Crescent."
