Withut eterie upn th let
ther coitutnaity f the' contra
labor law (of South Carolina. for iti
for the layman to assume as of cours,
that the decision is sound until it b
reversed by a hiichern court, it is to b)
sind1 that its effect will be unfor'tunl
ate at least for the time. Later, eon
ditions may road1juist thesel(ves an,

It is idlle to contend thmat the ord
nary remedies of the law for the er
forcement of contracts satisfactory
as among white men, are efficaciou
for the control of negro laborers or
the farms. The majority even of the
docile and "good" negroes are irre
sponsible. The remedy of damageh
for breach of contract is useless to
the employer. The negro laborer, on
the other hnd, would in a great pro
portion of cases, starve, -were not
supplies of food advanced before his
3 work can be performed, and the coil
1 tract labor law of the state has forti
t fled the farmer with the sole secur
t i1v that lie has for such adviance
ments. While the law has bleen si)
,ject, to ablise, we believe that tle
abutses have been exceptional, and
that the avera-e South Carolina far
iter who employs negro labor is just
a111d imerciful to his hired servanits.

wav which woill he beautified with

much to the appearance of the court
