HE MAKES A ROUSING SPEECH AT
AIKEN. S. C.
Iu Which lie Tells What lie Knows About
the Farmers' Movement, and Makes it
Couvlneiit to Touch on Matters not Con
nected with Fanning?A Speech Which
Speaks for Itself.
Bv request of a large list of citizens,
of all classes, Capt. B. R. Tillman ad
dressed a large and enthusiastic audi
ence in the Court House at Aiken
Capt. T. W. Whatley was called to
the Chair, and stated the object of the
meeting, namely: To listen to one
who had the interests of the farmers
thoroughly at heart, one who had made
the subject a study, and was posted in
every detail. The following is an out
line of what Air. Tillman said :
Fellow Citizens : Corning as I do, J
from a distance of only seventeen miles j
from this place, it is natural to sup
pose that I am no stranger to you.
It is needless for me to inform you
that I am nothing but a farmer. I am
not accustomed to extemporaneous
speaking having delivered ray first one
on yesterday, I regret that I have not
been able to prepare a manuscript
speech for you to-day, as I am liable to
wander off and make strav shots. If I
did the subject justice, I would keep
you here until night. As the humble
originator of the farmers' movement I
have responded to your invitation and
will give you as full an exposition of
its purpose as I can without worrying
It was first called the Tillman move
ment and then the farmers' movement.
Tillman was not responsible .for this,
that was only called so with a view of
raising antagonism to him by stating
that it was only to agrandize himself.
The farmers' movement swallowed
mine. He then gave a history of his
movement at Bennettsvilie, and its
origin at that place and its conduct
since, through the columns of the
News and Courier. He spoke of the
objections made to him that he was
too aggressive and hit too hard, but
explained that in face of the fact that
his audience at Bennettsvilie by their
hearty applause showed their thorough
sympathy with the movement and the
ideas he advanced, but notwithstand
ing this the political farmers who were
largely in the majority among the dele
gates sat down on him, although many
had promised their support and it is no
wonder that he had not been careful of
the feelings of these men since, he was
sore with that class, did not care who
he hit nor where, but has told the
truth as he saw it regardless of the
consequences. If you doubt my sin
cerity in my desire to benefit the farm
ing interests of the State, i hope to
convince you thoroughly before I
close. Mr. Tillman then dwelt at
length upon the management and
small value to the farming interests of
the South Carolina College, as it was
now conducted and created great
laughter by comparing that institu
tion to a classical and literary kite
with a very small tail, upon which
was written Agricultural. He ex
plained that the action of the trustees
who were* composed at that time of
lawyers, with one exception, had been
" the sole cause of his seeming animus
against the legal fraternity; said that
some of his best friends were lawyers
and that he had no animosity against
any class; he had hopes that when the
lawyers of the State examined into the
question, as he trusted they would do,
they would all be found favorable to
the establishment of a separate-Agri
cultural College, for he felt satisfied
that the ignorance among the mass of
the farmers, and their prejudice
against what is known as "book farm
ing" would cause many of them to op
pose the college, because they doubted
the possibility of educating a farmer
in the college. He proceeded to show
that history of all institutions of this
character which did not require work
from the students upon a college farm
prove them to be failures and not
patronized by farmers, and emphasized
the fact by giving statistics showing
that whereas 50 per cent, of the gradu
ates of the Michigan College returned
to the farm not more than five per
cent, of classical and literary students
ever followed that occupation. He
dwelt upon the necessity of farmers
getting out of the old ruts and claimed
that without scientific training and a
, study of the fundamental principles
underlying agriculture, it was useless
to hope for progress. He read many
extracts from the letter of Dr. Thorn
well to Governor Manning, all going
to prove that that distinguished edu
cator urged the necessity and value of
practical training adapted to the pur
suit which the man was to follow, and
said that if the dead could rise Dr.
Thornwell would rebuke the present
trustees and those in power for so
strenuously opposing a separate and
distinct intitution for farmers. After
referring to the injustice to the musses
by requiring them to pay tuxes to sup
port the institution und establishing
free tuition contrary to law, be pro
ceeded to comment upon Dr. Battle's
recent address, urging the education of
all the classes in one institution as
best for the farmers, and desired to
know how this could be shown or
proven when less than 5 per cent, of
the graduates of such insitution ever
went to farming, and as proving the
high estimation in which the gradu
ates of the Michigan College are held,
stated that lb* of the alumni were now
serving as professors in other institu
He said that the idea that college
graduates only achieved success in life
was disproved by the Congress of the
United States, over one-half of whose
members only received an academic
education. 1 have been roundly abused
for advocating an increase of 25 cents
per ton tax on guano to sustain an
agricultural college. Our taxes are too
high and 1 feel doubtful whether even
the farnieas of the State would sub
mit to an increase for even this pur
pose; but is there a farmer worthy the
name who would object paying this
pitiful sum, if thereby a real agricul
tural und mechanical college may be
secured, where his boys may be educated
to follow fanning and nut be ashamed
of it? Sonic of the newspapers are
opposing this und express a willing
ness for the money to come out of the
State Treasury, and if this is done he
was satisfied. '
He showed how the present analysis
of fertilizers was defective and frauds
perpetrated; estimated that the far
mers of the State, while grumbling!
lover 825,000, were being robbed of
I $500,000 without knowing it. The last
report of the Commissioner of Agri
culture having shown one-third of the
guano sold in the State was below the
guarantee. The farmers spend nearly
S3.000.000 in fertilizers, which is keep
ing them poor, and yet they quietly
submit to frauds upon them" without
punishing the offenders. If we had
Agricultural Colleges the chemists
could analyze them and teach the boys
to do so. The analysis of fertilizers
for the last three years has cost an
average of S30 on each brand. We
have been told by Professor Joynes, of
the South Carolina College, that the
chemist of the College and Prof. Mc
Bride offered to have it done for 85
per brand; why it was not accepted, he
could not tell.
It had seemed to lie the policy of the
State Government to create as many
offices as possible, thereby increasing
He regretted to say that the
Legislature of South Carolina had
fallen so low as to create offices to
keep up broken down aristocrats, (this
was greeted with great applause.)
Alluding to the Hoard of Agricul
ture and its present composition he
asked why it was that practical far
mers were not selected as members of
that Hoard rather than professional
men and politicians ? After paying a
handsome compliment to Chancellor
Johnson, the lawyer on the Board, he
said his opposition to that gentleman
being a member arose from the fact
that while he did not doubt his fitness
it was solely on principle. If Chancel
lor Johnson came from Marion through
the people's channel, the Agricultural
Society, he would be the last man to
object*to him. He then explained how
the Board of Agriculture should be
chosen, viz : by farmers' convention,
and not by the Legislature, thus taking
the matter out of politics. He dwelt
on the lamentable fact that Aiken had
only one agricultural club and urged all
classes to organize a county society and
showed how, if all classes put their
shoulders to the wheel to advance their
interest. How would a board of agri
culture selected by delegates from
these societies represent only one class?
That the lawyers and merchants could
do a great deal by sympathizing with
After explaining how farmers' insti
tutes were conducted, he read an article
from "The Country Gentlemen," show
ing that 46 had been held in Ohio last
winter at an expense less than ?2,000.
We buy everything from the Yankees;
why not benefit by their experience.
This system of ele'cting a Board of
Agriculture is in vogue in nearly all
the Northern States, and is superior to
our political convention where men
are elected on the principle,
"Tickle me, Jimmy, tickle nie true;
You tickle me and I'll tickle you."
They have accused me of hunting
office. Where is the honor of going to
Columbia and being a bootlick? All
men are not so, but we can't deny that
many of the farmers that have gone
there have followed some old General
or Colonel, and has been voted by him.
I want to join no such procession. If
I ever get office, and 1 will be put to
the test,"it will be when the people de
mand my services, and not before.
The speaker seeing that it was din
ner time, desired to stop, but amid
cries of "Go on! go onT he proceeded.
He next referred to the charge that the
farmers' movement was inimical to the
Democratic party. He lived in Edge
field?he was proud of it?and his
Democracy was above suspicion; that
it made his blood boil to have in
insinuations cast against his fealty to
the Democracy, especially when the
charge came from men who had en
deavored to compromise with Chamber
lain in IS76 and fasten Radicalism on
us perpetually, while he and the un
terified straig'htouts of Edgefield and
Aiken were risking lives and liberty
in the Hamburg ana Elleton riots.
The farmers are like Balaam's ass.
They see perdiiion yawning ahead of
them. While I, as their spokesman,
have pointed out the danger and re
monstrated, they refuse to advance,
while the ring who misgovern the
State are belaboring the poor ass with
the Democratic club and urging sub
mission, holding up a probable split in
the party as a bugaboo to frighten us.
But because we are Democrats and see
and feel the necessity of keeping the
grand old party intact, there is no rea
son why we should not reform it.
Every ulcer which was eating into the
body poltitic in '7G is still gnawing at
our vitals, and there is no earthly rea
son why we farmers?who are the
greatest sufferers?should not take
such steps to bring about reform and
redress of grievances as we deem ne
cessary, this can only be done by
organized effort and concert of action,
and you will cry in vain for reduction
of taxes and correction of abuses until
you think and vote on other than per
sonal issues. He then pointed out the
mismanagement and waste in our free
school fund by its being frittered and
divided, and urged the establishment
of school districts live miles square,
with one school in the center for each
race, thus securing longer terms and
better teachers. Our present school
districts are divided byroads and creeks
and very irregular in shape.
The County Commissioners, as
managers of county affairs, have been |
failures. They are not paid enough to
make the ollice desirable for any man.
And if, accidentally, the services of
good men are obtained, they feel that
they are not remunerated sufficiently
to give their whole time to their duties.
The consequence is. they are not at
tended *z. *, e, in Edgefield. have no
roads, but travel in gullies. We have
no hopes of any improvement until the
Anti-bellum system is re-established.
Think of Aiken County, a corporation
of six or eight millions" of dollars, put- j
ting three men over all its vast and;
varied interests, and paying them S2 j
per day. Would the Graniteville 1
Manufacturing - Company pay divi
dends if its superintendents were
selected on this principle?
I will next take up the Trial Justice
system. [A voice, "Anuisance."] It
is both a nuisance and a humbug. You
may be more fortunate than we, but in
Edgefield there are some who hunt all
Uie litigation they can lind and fill the
dockets with negro quarrels, consum
ing the time of courts and funds of the
county. I think the best plan is to
kill ?off the whole brood, substituting
magistrates, with the power to probate
papers, issue warrants, and give them
jurisdiction over civil cause below ?20,
without right of appeal; and give us a
County Judge, to be elected by the
people", who will clear the jails and pre-1
vent the waste of dieting prisoners in
all minor offences.
Alluding to the Constitutional Con
vention, the necessity therefor, he
said some were afraid it would be a
dangerous experiment to call it. Are
the white men of South Carolina sunk
so low that they are prepared to ac
knowledge that "they have not the in
telligence to elect delegates to the Con
stitutional Convention who will give
us an organic law better suited to our
wants than that thrust down our
throats at the point of the bayonet by
Gen. Canby; the work of scalawags,
negroes and carpet-baggers.
The Xews and Courier puts the ques
tion: "Why this agitation for a Con
stitutional Convention ?" I answer
simply to enable us to reduce taxation
by abolishing assessors ollices and sim
plifying county governments so as to
stop the leaks in the public treasury,
and above all we want one of our own
making that the Legislature won't
dare disobey. See how these law
makers acted in regard to the census
and apportioning the representation on
a basis of population. The Constitu
tion is the only barrier between you
and Anarchy, and yet these men who
had sworn to support it and obey its
mandates perjured themselves, "thus
cutting off from several counties their
just voice in public affairs, the claim
is made that this is done because it is
too expensive, yet they did not hesi
tate to tax you in trie face of three bad
crops to commence work on the State
House which will cost a million dollars
to finish. They have sunk large sums
in the Columbia ditch, they wasted
money in various ways and for various
purposes, but they could not obey the
Constitution because it cost money. Is
it any wonder that when the example is
thus set in high places of such palpable
disregard of law that murder and vio
lence are rampant and lynch law grown
too common, such acts debauch the
public conscience and men are only too
ready to follow the example set them
by our law-makers. When I used the
words in one of my letters charging
misrule and robbery on the ring govern
ing the State, there was a howl like a
pack of hyenas. I ask you if this diso
bedience of the constitution does not
warrant-the charge ? Can anyone deny
that there has been robbery by the lien
laws and frauds in fertilizers ? If you
desire to secure reduction of taxes and
bring about that reform so necessary
to your welfare; if you desire to secure
yoiir just share of the money you pay
as taxes; if you desire an agricultural
college, where your boys may be taught
practical farming at s'mall cost; if you
desire to have your fertilizers properly
analysed and inspected, organize ! You
are the controlling power in the Demo
cratic party, you are largely responsible
for the present condition of affairs by
reason of your apathy and indifference.
Compel your candidates to discuss
questions of such vast importance and
quit voting for men because they can
shake hands with a sweet smile.
Measures and not men should be your
motto. The best men for the position
should receive your suffrage without
regard to the class they belong to, but
be sure to make them clearly, under
stand what you want and see that they
do no dodging when they go to Colum
Mr. Tillman then thanked the audi
ence for their kind attention and re
tired amidst the loudest applause. It
may be truly said that he completely
captured the crowd mid Alken County
will go for him in future and thorough
ly endorse the farmers' movement.
Mr. Tillman spoke for one hour and
three-quarters, and we have, of course,
omitted much that we could not attain.
But not being a stenographer we are
unable to give his speech in full, though
we desired it ever so much. E.
Editor Times and Democrat :
While South Carolina has every rea
son to be proud of her representatives
in the Xational Legislature, we, of the
First District, particularly, are to be
congratulated upon having, as our im
mediate representative, such a wise,
conservative and eminent statesman as
the Hon. Samuel Dibble, of Orange
burg. Those who have watched the
course of Mr. Dibble in Congress for
the past four years, cannot fail to be
favorably impressed with the manner
in which'he has discharged the arduous,
and oftimes perplexing duties of his
position. He has been, to say the least
of it, a faithful and efllcient public
servant, and his past record not only
reflects great credit upon himself, but
attests the wisdom and discriminating
judgment of his constituents, who in
honoring him, have so signally honored
and benefited themselves.
In no part of the First District is Mr.
Dibble more highly, esteemed, person
ally, or his official conduct more genu
inely admired, than in Colleton. In
deed we could feel no sincerer attach
ment for one of our own sons, than we
do lor the distinguished gentlemen,
who at present represents us in Con
gress. It may be that the position of
Mr. Dibble on various public questions,
such us the tariff, currency, &c, does
not meet with universal approval, for
there are, and always will be. certain
irreconcilable malcontents in every
township, county and district, it is
impossible, under the circumstances, to
pursue any course, however conscienti
ous or consistent a man may be, with
out incurring the displeasure of a few
individuals of ultra views. For in
stance the pronounced free trader, or
blatant protectionist are apt to oppose
a more conservative administration of
tariff reform, while the gold monome
tallist can ill digest bimetallic argu
Altogether, Mr. Dibble has made a
most excellent representative, and the
people fully understand and appreciate
bis assiduous and pains-taking efforts
to promote their best interests. His
whole course in Congress has been
characterized by an unwavering devo-l
tion to duty, and he has always dis
played the utmost zeal and activity, in
the prosecution of the work devolving
upon him. The object of this commu
nication is to accord to a capable and
faithful public servant that meed of
praise which his past conduct so justly
merits, and we feel sure when the
Nominating Convention id' the First
District assembles, he will receive ad
ditional assurances of confidence and es
teem from the members of that body.
Colleton will send a solid Dibble dele
gation, and, as a matter of course, his
unanimous renomination is a foregone
conclusion. Long may he represent

For. twelve or fourteen years I Have been
a great sufferer from a terrible form of
blood poison which ran into a secondary,
and finally it was pronounced a tertiary
form. My" head, face and shoulders be
came almost a mass of corruption, and
finally the disease commenced eating away
my skull bones. I became so horribly re
pulsive that for three j ears I absolutely re
fused to let people see me. I used large
quantities of most noted blood remedies and
applied to nearly all physicians near me,
but my condition continued to grow worse,
and all said that I must surely die. My
bones became the scat of excruciated aches
and pains; my nights were passed in misery:
I was reduced in flesh and strength; my
kidneys were terribly deranged, and life
becam" a burden to me.
1 chanced to see an advertisement of B.
B. B., aud sent one dollar to W. C. Birch
more & Co., merchants of our place, and
they procured one bottle for me. It was
used with decided benefit, and when eight
or ten bottles had been used I was pro
nounced sound and well.
Hundreds of scars can now be seen on
'me, looking like a man who had been
burned and then restored. My case was
well known in this county, and for the
benefit of others who ma}- be similarly af
fected, f think it my duty to give the facts
to the public, and to extend my heartfelt
thanks for so valuable a remedy. I have
been well over twelve months, aud no re
turn of the disease has occtued.
