'MAKE THE ELDER HUSH.
"Old Hickory" Would Soon Smash
the 10harlotte Observer's Foolish
The Charlotte Observer swears that
Andrew Jackson was born in North
Carolina, and the News and Courier
stands to it that the rough and tum
ble old statesman was a native of
James Parton thought that there
was no doubt of the fact that Jack
son was born in North Carolina,
about half a mile across the state
line from Lancaster County, and in
his life of Jackson cited a lot of testi
mony in proof, notwithstanding Jack
son's own belief to the contrary, as
set forth in the famous threatening
proclamation that he hurled against
"the people of his native state."
No, the Enquirer is not hunting
trouble. It has no desire to butt into
a controversy between such cham
poins as the editors of the News and
Courier and the Charlotte Observer.
It is too well satisfied with the good
terms it is enjoying with both for one
thing, and for another thing, it is
afraid that in this controversy both
of the editors have become so imbued
with the Andrew Jackson spirit that
neither of them would give up, even
if convinced that the other was. right.
But that Jackson always thought
he was born in South Carolina we are
quite convinced, and because of a lit
tle more evidence on'the subject this
is being written. In looking over the
files of the Pioneer, published in
Yorkville in 1824, a few days ago, we
ran across the followinf, credited to
'The Carolina Gazette."
"We are pleased to learn by the
following correspondence that our
City Council are about procuring a
full length likeness of that patriot,
warrior and statesman, Gen. Andrew
Jackson, to be painted by'the cele
brated Mr. Vanderlyn. This is anoth

directed by a resolution of the City

'''The Hon. Andrew Jackson,

1824.-Sir: The resolution of the City
Council of Charleston, communicated
by you, through Major Hamilton and
Mr. Poinsett of the House -of Repre

with pleasure aeeeded~ to. It will sub

pleasure and satisfaction to me that
my native state can think so favora

resemblance, and hence to retain a
remembrance of me. I, therefore,
cheerfully comply with the request
made through you on behalf of the
city council. I view it in no other
light than a testimonial of respect
and regard from those who are of the
state that gave me birth, and where
many of the pleasurable days of my
youth were spent.

Everybody knows that Andrew
Jackson was a man of overbearing
and unreasonable temper. In illus
trationy of this Parton relates a story
to the effect that when the president
was a boy, two other boys, as a joke
on him, induced him to fire off a gun
that they had secretly loaded almost
to the muzzle. Their idea was to
have him kicked over, and they were
successful; but he was on his feet al
most in an instant and said to his
companions. ''By C- -, if either of
you laugh, I'll kill you." They did
In vie of the letter above, we are
iniciin,?d to the opiniol that if Jack
son were here now lie would say to
the editor of the Charlotte Observer:
"If you don't quit trying to argue
that I haven't got sense to know
where I was born, I'll swat you with
my hickory stick."
Farmer s Union Bureau of
-Condueted by the
South Carolina Farmers' Eduea
tional and Co-Operation Union.
8drCommunications intended for this
department should be addressed to J. C
Stribling, Pendleton, S. C.
Notice is here given that every lo
cal union aftr expiration of thir
ty days or before the first of October
1907, will be required to assemble and
vote on the new amendtnent to the
South Carolina Constitution making
the dues double what they are now.
This increase in the dues will put
new life in the union and forward the
work of organizing the state.
Th'is increase of dues may cause
some few luke warm members to
drop out of the union which should
be an argument in its favor, for the
reason that all such people that think
and work for the principle of asking
their best men to work for nothing
are not the kind of men needed in
your union. That idea of not paying
men to do things for the good of all
that has been saving such enormous
amounts in the value of cotton alone,
will have to go. Drop all such ideas
and members too that stick to the
principles of asking others to laave
their work and homes to work for
them without pay.
Cotton School at Clemson.
For some time the Farmers' Union
of South Carolina has been looking
into the feasibility of establishing a
cotton school on their own account,
not knowing that Clemson College
was already well equipped for this
Now, it is no news to the up-to-date
cotton grower to tell him that beyond
doublt this state looses annually
enough cotton money on arbitrary
grading to build a warehouse at most
of the shipping stations in the state.
This thing of trusting the grading
and classifying cotton to the ordinary
two-by-four ''cotton slasher'' of the
country must go with the privilege of
pricing our cotton.
We must get up some real good ex -
pert cotton graden or classifiers
that do this work from the standpoint
of the requirements of the mills, and
cut out this imposition of the com
mon so-called expert cotton graders
who are more on the order of expertI
liars than they are the classifiers
I call for a committee from the un
ion to go to Clemson and look into
tis cotton school questitn there and
let the people know how it is.
The click, click, of 'the bucket shop
telegraph hammer may be dead, but
the ''eotton bureau'' has been born
in a number of places where the
bucket shops use to thrive.
Since the bucket shops have died
out and over a thousand cotton ware
houses have come up' like toad stools
in almost a night, cotton bears are
not making for tall timber like some
thought, but on the contrary they
have quit the town offices and gone
out into the country cotton patches
trying a new game there, to buy cot
ton before it is made in order to keep
the cotton out of these safety vaults,
the cotton warehouses.

Perhaps one of the finest corn crops
ever grown in South Carolina is now
to be seen growing with good pros
pects for maturing.
This fine corn crop backed up by a
fair oat crop places the farmers of
this state in a fmne po-sition for de
manding a profitable price for their
cotton crop and getting their price.
Fortified with more than a thou
sand warehouses, owned and operated
by the Farmers' Union, and support
ed by the large majority of the busi
ness men in other occupations it mat
ters little what the size of the pres
ent crop may be, the producers of cot

their eotton crops and get their own
No matter how favorable the sea
sons may be from now on, it is impos
sible for this crop to supply the enor
mous demand for cotton. Steady your
selves in the saddle, boys, but don't
get giddy-headed or lean too far on
In ourextensive travels over the
state we find a few farmers that have
sold their cotton crops before it is
sold their cotton crops before it is
made for from 12 to 12 1-2 cents per
pound. Now these farmers are not
getting any jumps on others nor fool
ing anyone except themselves, for the
reason should be plain to anyone that
these buyers are out to make money
for themselves and when the unor
ganized and uninformed farmer puts
up his single judgment against a well
organized and well informed class of
cotton speculators he is iure to loose
out at every touchdown these slick
chaps make on his cotton patches. If
these organized speculators did not
believe, or you may say, know, that
cotton will bring more than they of
fer, where is the inducement for these
speculators to contract for the cotton
instead of buying the cotton when it
comes on the market?
The Thoughtful Landlord.
