GFN. BUTLER IS OPTIMISTIC.
Old Soldier Talks of FinelCrops and
Judge Brawley's Deciion.
News and Courier.
Columbia, August 22.-Gen. M. C.
Butler for forty years has known as
much about South Carolina as any
other man who has lived in this state
during that time. Gen. Butler has
been in the city this week with his
old comrades, and while in conversa
tion with this correspondent the oth
er day he declared that the crops on
his plantation in Edgefield are the
finest this year that he has seen since
Gen. Butler does not take much
stock in much of the talk about labor
conditions. He was emphatic in say
ing that he thought the decision of
Judge Brawley upsetting the farm
labor contract law is just and proper.
He thinks that cre)lit will always
have to be extended to the negroes,
because they are essentially shiftless,
but does not think there should be
any trouble managing them.
"What about the negroes who*
won't keep their obligations, Gener
al?" was askeu'.
"Weil, I don't know, because I
have never had any of that kind on

there is of a war between me and

"There won't be any fight between
us, General, if I can get out of the
way," said the newspaper man.
"And I am old and lame and can't
fight now," replied the General.
Commenting on political conditions
Gen. Butler said he was glad to know
that South Carolina in her legislation
concerning railroads and other cor
porations had been the most conser
vative of all the states, and had not
gone crazy like some of the others.
"If we could get rid of the dema
gogue this country would be all
right," he continued. "Why a fellow
will get up and make a speech, in
which he portrays the marvellous
prosperity and progress of the coun
try, and then in a little while he will
denounce the corporations for their
terrible oppression of the people. I
can't figure out how he stands for
There are different views on the
labor problems, but all views this
year seem to be the same on the crops
in South Carolina. Mr. J. Belton
'Watson, one of the largest farmers
of Anderson county, has been in Co
lumbia for several days this week,
preparatory to a trip in the interests
of the Farmers' union, in which he
is a leading member and officer.
"Crops are fine," said Mr. Watson,
in response to a question. "Yes, sir,
in our county, the ox and the ass
will know where their master's crib
is this year, sure. I have never seen
the cotton in better condition and
there is plenty of corn."
Mr. Watson went on to say that
the labor conditions were the only
drawback to the prosperity of the
farmers. He stated that the negroes
-everywhere had heard of Judge
Brawley 's decision, and it had had its
effect in making them restless and
some of them had jumped their con
tracts, no longer being in fear of im
" The thing to do is to repeal the
lien law, and any man who will ac
complish that will serve his state
most signally," declared Mr. Watson.
The Farmers, union has already pass

to take this action, and a committee
has been appointed. termed the legis

Mr Watson says that the Farmers'
union is grwn stenti!e He 1s
now making a trip to the Yower part
of the state and speaks at Orange

plaining the purposes and the plans
of the union. He declares that there
is nothing in the organization which
can be objected to, and the union de
sires The friendship of the mill men

cdvaitage of the mills.
In order to counteract to some ex
tent. the evil conditions following
Judge Brawley's decision, the Farm
ers' union at its recent state conven
tion adopted a resolution pledging its
members not to engage or employ
farm laborers who are under contract
with another farmer, whether the
contract is binding or not. This prac
tice has aroused considerable feeling
in some sections of the state.
