Editor Times and Demokrat:
What we need in this country is
more cotton and woolen goods, more
hats, more shoes, more tools, more
money, in fact more of everything
than we have, and the way to
get more of everything than we
have, is to reduce taxation, open our
ports to the world, and allow our citi
zens to buv where they can buy the
cheapest, and sell where they can ob
tain the highest prices for what they
have to sell.
I have heard men of this country
say, '?well there is no tariff on cotton,
and why not make plenty of cotton,
and sell it, and take the money and buy
what we want." Geographically and
numerically speaking, this is taking
rather a contracted and diminutive
view of the subject. True, there is no
duty on raw cotton, but there is a duty
on cotton frabrics and everything else
which raw cotton is sold or exchanged
for, except quinine, matches, coffee,
and one or two other articles. And
this duty on the things for which raw
cotton is sold or exchanged in foreign
N countries, or in other words the duty
on imports amount to the same thing
as if there was an export duty on raw
cotton, or anything else which is ex
ported for imports. Suppose we abol
ish the tariff on imports and put it on
our exports. Let the tariff, be put on
our raw cotton, our grain, our meat,
&.c. Let the duty be collected at the
ports exit, and' paid into our costom
houses just the same as the duty is now
paid on our Imports. Suppose a vessel
comes from a foreign country laden
with eroods to be exchanged lor raw
cotton. Suppose the export tariff on
the raw cotton to be two cents per
pound. The shipper must add the
tariff he has to pay to the price of the
goods, or be financially ruined. If the
trade is made, if the raw cotton is ex
changed for the cargo of goods, the
effect on the prices of the goods, as
they become scattered throughout the
country is the same as though the tariff
had been put on the imports, the cargo
of goods, instead of the exports, the
raw cotton. Suppose the cotton sold
at the port of exit for ten cents per
pound. The cotton producer does not
get a single cent of the export tariff
which made it sell for that. The two
cents per pound goes to the govern
ment, but when the cotton planter
comes to buy the articles the raw cot
ton was traded or exchanged for, he
has-to make up .the two cents to the
merchant who paid the duty.
But fortunately the world "is not made
of cotton, or any other one thing. Nor
are the United States, nor the South,
nor South Carolina. Not even Orange
burg county can live on cotton alone.
God in his wisdom laid,every quarter
of the universe under contribution to
satisfy man's wants. It is the inter
ference by man with God's laws, the
barriers and restrictions heaped up by
Congress to divert trade from its free,
unrestricted and natural channels,
that ails the country now. In the case
of the Orangeburg farmer, it is not so
much the low price of cotton that
hurts, as the high prices he has to pay
with the low prices cotton bring. Cot
ton is not the only thing we have to
selL It requires more than one pro
duct to run a country. It takes more
than ? one thing with which to get
ruoaey, -We cannot buy unless we
have something^xTneTi iutu Quit sume
thing is not always cotton, not even in
Orangeburg County. We cannot even
buy money, unless we have something
to "sell. But as was before remarked
money does not necessarily constitute
wealth. "Money is not absolutely es
sential to business, trade or production.
Money facilitates trade, it is a great
. helper of trade, it is a useful adjunct
of trade. It discharges the same func
tions in trade as a ship, or railroad, or
horse, or wagon, only in a higher degree
than any of these, or perhaps than all
of them combined. Trade existed be
fore money, and would continue to
exist, though all money was swept out
Some people seem to think that we
cannot buy any thing without money
and that we cannot sell anything with
out money. Money is only a medium
of exchange, a standard of value by
which we measure the value of the
things we give in exchange for each
other. No nation, no community ever
has sufficient money to pay for its out
side or foreign purchases. The mer
chants of'Orangeburg, nor the people
of any other town or community ever
have sufficient money to pay for their
outside purchases. "The amount of
money used in international exchanges
represents the merest fraction of the
value of such exchanges. There is not
money enough in the United States to
pay for its outside purchases for three
These references to money have been
made with a view of trying to disabuse
the minds of some persons that monev
is not all in all, and that trade, free
trade, unrestricted trade, natural trade
is essential to prosperity, and prerequi
site for obtaining money.
If men could, or would get it out of
their minds, that the building up of one
industry at the expense of many others
was no gain to the many. If they
could, or'would but realize," that there
was no gain in the aggregate, or jus
tice in robbing a thousand Peters to
pay one Paul, or that the taxing of a
thousand individuals for the benefit of
one individual, was all wrong and con
trary to the plainest lessons of econo
mics, then the protective tariff would
vanish as thin air. We are often re
ferred to the prosperous condition of
this industry, or that, to this section of
our country, or that, as instances of
the benefits of protection, while the
glaring fact is overlooked, that these
conditions are brought about at the ex
pense of many others.
Free traders do not propose to do
away with the tariff altogether. As
long as the government exists, it is pro
posed to raise revenue by a tariff of
some kind, but it is the intention of
the free traders to get rid of the pro
tective tariff. 'They do not expect ab
solute free trade, but they do want freer
trade, in fact all the free trade they
can get, and are never afraid of getting
too much. The more the better. Eng
land is called a free trade country, but
England has not literally, absolute free
trade, but then she comes so near to it,
about as near perhaps as it is practical,
or politic to come, that we might say,
virtually, she is a free trade country.
England raises her revenue by meaiis
of an excise tax, and a tariff on only
seven different articles, not one of
which is raised in England. The Uni
ted States levies a tariff on over twenty
eight thousand different articles and
has an excise tax besides. There is a
vast difference between seven, and
It may be inquired .how is it propos
ed to raise revenue for the government.
Before inquiring how to raise the reve
nue, it is pertinent to know how much
revenue is required. In the humble
opinion of the writer the best plan
which has been offered yet is that of
Prof. A. J. Eddy, which the writer will
endeavor to reproduce here.
For the year 1882, the latest year for
which 1 have any statistics, and which
mav be considered an average year
per"haps,vit cost to[run< the government
$258,000,000. For the same year the
total receipts were ?403,000,000 or $145,
000,000 more than was expended. Taxes
therefore could have been reduced
S145,000,OOU and there would have still
been enough left to run the govern
ment. These are the receipts and their
Direct tax. 100,141
Public lands. 4,753,140
Miscellaneous receipts? 703,042
Of this amount the tariff and inter
nal revenue produced by far the great
est amount. The high tariff people
propose to abolish the internal revenue.
They see that if the internal revenue
is abolished, it wipes out $140,000,000 of
revenue, or about the amount of excess
of revenue over expenditure. Abolish
the internal revenue and the taxes are
taken off whiskey and tobacco, the very
two articles that should be taxed the
most. Take $145,000,000, the amount
of the surplus, from $220,000,000, (I use
round figures,) the amount raised by
customs, and it leaves only $75,000,000
necessary to be raised by a tariff to
meet all the expenditures of the gov
ernment. The question then is, not
how to raise $220,000,000 b\ a tariff'
that will not be protective, but how to
raise $75,000,000 by a tariff that will
not be protective.
On seven articles England collects
by tariff $75,000,000 of revenue, and not
one of the seven articles is produced in
England. The seven articles are, to
bacco, tea, wine, dried fruit, coffee,
chiccory, chocolate and cocoa. These
seven articles yield England a revenue
of $75.(XX),000 without protecting a sin
gle individual or company.
Here is a table of but tight different
articles in this country, that would
produce all the revenue" we need from
a tariff. The amount of revenue is
based upon the consumption of the
different articles in '82. A duty of 20
per cent is put on tea and coffee. The
duties on raw silks and jewels remain
the same. The duties on spirits and
wines are doubled, the duties on tobac
co and manufactures of tobacco are
doubled, the duties on sugar and mo
lasses are reduced one-half, the duties
on silk and its manufacturers are re
duced one-half. This is the table :
Paw silk. 2,578,078
Silk and manufactures of. 11,310,508
Spirits and wines. 13,532,002
Sugar and molasses. 24,003,038
Tobacco and manufac
tures of. 12,000,000
This gives over five millions of dol
l.u.-Tiiiuu ilion 1j i.ie?al ruf ii.lvJ *'
eminent. The list is not quite free
from protection, but-what little protec
tion there is in it, would hardly be felt.
The receipts would then be as follows :
Customs tariff.8 80,420,740
Internal revenue. 140,497,595
Direct tax. 100,141
Public lands. 4,753,140
Miscellaneous recepts_ 31,703,042
Total expenditures. 258,000,000
Surplus in treasury.$ 5,541,204.
The present tariff list embraces over
twenty-eight thousand different arti
cles. 'The above list of only eight
would be so simple that all could un
derstand it, and it would raise the ne
cessary amount of revenue, including
the interest on the public debt, without
taking from the many for the few.
All that I have to say in conclusion,
is, never vote for any man for the Fed
eral Congress, no matter what may be
the color of his skin, hair or eyes," no
matter what religious tenets he may
hold, nor what may be his principles
of moral suasion, no matter what may
be the shade of his political opinions,
whether Democrat or Republican,
Greenbacker or Bluebacker. unless he
is strictly and unalterably, from top to
bottom, through the middle, and all
over, in favor of reducing federal taxa
tion, first, last and all the time.
And when we get a Congress that
monopolists' money cannot buy, a Con
gress that will give us a tariff for reve
nue only, then will our waning indus
tries revive. We will no longer hear
of mills closing up, from overproduc
tion. Blood shed for bread, will case; la
bor riots will stop; the voice of the tramp
will no longer be heard in the land.
Every class will receive a new impetus.
The Slimmer breezes will sweep over
fields of rich products, and the Autumn
winds will bear inscribed on their
wings the signs of peace and prosperi
ty, throughout this broad and fertile
land. Then will South Carolina bloom
and blossom as the rose, and then in
deed will be inaugurated the era of that
good time coming for the care worn,
and long weary cotton planters of even
the little county of Orangeburg.

Cure for Piles.
Piles are frequently proceeded by a
sense of weight in the back, loins and
lower part of the abdomen, causing the
patient to suppose he has some affec
tion of the kidneys or neighboring or
gans. At times, symptoms of indiges
tion are present, flatulency, uneasiness
of the stomach, etc. A moisture like
perspiration, producing a very dis
agreeable itching, after getting warm,
is a common attendant. Blind, Bleed

the application of Dr. Bosankos Pile
Remedy, which acts' directly upon the
parts affected, absorbing the Tumors,

nnilE SUCCESSFUL CAREER OF
a the Mutual Reserve Fund Life Asso
ciation is marvellous in the annals of life
insurance enterprise. Its name has be
come a tower of strength, and has been
well earned by the untiring devotion of
President Harper and his associates. Its
astonishing prosperity has pro voiced attacks
which are best repelled by a frank and full
exhibit of its greatly increasing line of
business. Up to July 1,1885, this shows a
gain of no less than ?13 214,580 over that
of the corresnonping period last year.
In June alone" its mortuary receipts ex
ceeded ?250,000, of which over ?00,000 went
into the Reserve Fund?that triple buttress
upon which the association justly pride's
itself. Tills reserve now amounts to ?425,
000, and is employed for three purposes
only?to pay death claims, if any should
occur in excess of the American F-pperience
Mortality Tables; to make good any poss
ible deficiency in the Death Fund Account,
and to be apportioned among those who
have been members of the Association fif
teen years, etc. as the first and second
contingencies named are not likely to arise,
the third object is the one upon which the
fund is practically expended. It is ftdl of
other good points, among which may be
mentioned the economical salary list?less
