THE MANNING THUS.~
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24,1886.
B. S. DINKINS, Editor.
The 29th of April next at Columbia is
the time and place fixed upon for the
farmer's convention. Opinions differ
as to the object and purposes influen
dng the agitators and promoters ol
the call-for this meeting.
The call, springing from the
vituperative speeches and virulent
writings of the self styled "Moses in
Egypt" and hs converts, has created
.a deep-feeling of distrust among a
Large number of farmers, and people of
other classes. We are, and have been,
heartily in favor of agricultural asso
ciations, whether they are local, State,
or National organizations, and the
TnrEs, from the beginning of its ca
reer, has been earnest in its endeavors
to arouse the farmers of Clarendon to
the importance of forming, among
themselves, agricultural societies as a
means for their higher enlightenment
and greater prosperity. But believ
ing the aggressive crusade inaugurat
ed by M)L Tillman to be highly inju
rious to the true interest of the farm
er, and calculated to create strife and
enmity among the people and even
the demoralization of the Democrat
ic party, the Tnxrs has opposed him
and his measures. Clarendon with the
State at large is a country of farmers;
the interest of the farmer is the inter
est of other avocations-in fact, the
various industries derive their exis
tence and support from the produc
tion of the soil, the result of the farm
ers' toil; if the farmer prospegs other
trades flourish in proportion. Then
as a natural consequence a law inju
rious to the agricultural interest is as
dsanaging to other pursuits.
The falsity of the harangue by Mr.
'illman and'his companions, that the
farmers are mere serfs and have no
part or parcel in the government has
been clearly established. The News
and Courier of the 16th, of the pres
ent month, in a very able article on
this convention call, shows by statis
tics that since 1880 in the House of
Representatives the farmers have had
an average majority of 24 members,
with an equal number of representa
tives in the Serate, and farmers large
ly preponderating in the other branch
- es of the Government, except in the
Judiciary. And our own local County
government-our Sheriff and Clerk
of the Court are farmers; two of the
county commissioners were called
from the farm to office and the other
has been a farmer till late years ; the
School Commissioner is a farmer;
the County Auditor was a farmer
and became a lawyer after his elec
* tion to office; the County Treasurer
is a doctor; two of the Trial Justi&
es of the County and the Probate
Judge are lawyers; our Senator is a
farmer; one of our representatives
is a-farmer and the other has been
farming to a greater or less extent the
whole of his lifetime. Thus we see
that the farmers of Clarendon have
not only a fair r-epresenfation but al
: ipost the entire monopoly of the of
ices. These facts are enough to con
vince the people that the aggravated
evils ecmplained of by Mr. Tillmnan
and his followers have no foundation,
and are used only as a stepping stone
to lead them to power.
~ The laws, the creation of man, are
far from perfect, and there are griev
ances a~ecting the agricultural as well
as other classes, but whatever the
causes are the farmer will find a surer
and more speedy redress with the as
sistance of his friend and helper than
by ostracising him, and following ir
. the footsteps of demagogues.
The convention in question can do
much good for the farmer and country
or its effect for harm can be immeas
urably greaf- An Agricultural Con
vention wher-s the modern methods o:
farining-etc., are promulgated by dis
cussion among the farmers would be a
lasting good, but a political assembly
presided over by revolutionists and
ambitious designers would ivye a tre
mendous influence for harm on the
elections in the fall.
Clarendon' should be fully repre.
sented. The ber .armers of intelli
gence and honesty of purpose should
be sent there-men who can compre
hend the issues presented, and raise
.their voices against the evil machina
tions of the Edgefield agitator and
his coadjutors in other Counties.
WHRT A FARMER HAS TO SAY AS TO
THE FARMERS' CON VENTION.
in- [ he Columnbia Register.1?
* The Neu-s and Courior published on
the 9th inst. a call for a farmers' con
vention with some hundred names
appended. The address states that
though the farmers comprise seventy
six per cent. of the population, and
largelv support the remainder, they
"do not govern the State, nor are the
and few are nassed for our bene- th
I Since we came into power in 1876
five Governors have held office, three th
of whom, Hampton, Hagood and Jeter th
were planters or farmers; Governor dt
Simpson was a lawyer and land own- la1
er, and possibly farmed some; Gov- be
ernor Thompson was selected by the: yc
farmers themselves, at least we must of
suppose so, in preferance6 to General 10:
Bratton, a Simon pure farmer! There as
are now four State officers, Lipscomb, "a
Richardson, Stoney and Manigault, st:
who are landowners and farmers. So he
much for State officers. Scores of nc
county officers are farmers also. he
The House of Representatives, hav- w4
ing about seventy-six farmers against wo
thirty lawyers, (who have the misfor- ta
tune of being accused of eyery species feJ
of trickery, &c., by our political econ
onists,) and very nearly a two-thirds m;
majority of the whole body, they sure- en
lv ought, in all reason, to be some- co
thing of a power in legislature. Do fai
seventy-six farmers in every one hun- wl
dred voters just sit still and have no th
voice in such a matter? I have never te:
witnessed such a case, and am sure es
such a thing would be impossible in co
any community. We are bound to "h
admit, then that the farmers them- tr<
selves selected and electad these men ed
who have been very indiscriminately tht
charged with "misrule," "robbery" ye
and "corruption," their assailants, a
however, taking good care to ignore ab
special charges against a single indi- Ch
In the second paragraph of this ne
"call' it is said "thousands are over- fr<
seeing their own plantations for their no
victuals and clothes." As I am no gen- att
ius, I would like a little light on this. w(
to me rather enigmatical sentence. th
Does it mean that these "thousands" of
have been so incompetent, idle or im
provident that they failed and other di
thousands have rented their places, ca
and feed and clothe them, like prodi- Pl
gal sons, to do for others what they lo,
were incapable of doing for them- gu
selves? Or does it mean that they ve
I have sold what was theirs,.and are now wl
simply working for other thousands,
whc, we must suppose, for want of an
proper laws, &c., must inevitably fol- th,
low the same downward course? But I
how did they get the money to buy de
the land? ad
The third paragraph commences no
very candidly, if not very flatteringly, lat
by asserting that "an insane system of of
farming largely prevails, and our lands foi
are growing poorer year by year, * * ca
while the landowners, giving no re]
thought to themselves and children, th
stand idly by, or assist and direct this ha
skinning of a State * * which th
might be made a veritable garden of it.
Eden." Continuing, it says: "But Se
nothing is done by our Legislature or thi
its crew"Lres (!) to stop it, or to try to re,
teach the people a better and wiser hil
system." Would these gentlemen, if PO
elected to the Legislature, take any P1
steps to stop the hotel-keepers and is
storekeepers from supplying them m
gratis with anything they called for? be
They might call them "insane," but te
they would not consider them keepers.
of an assylum, nor would they "or in
their creatures" be loath to profit by fa
other people's folly. "Forty thousand' te~
dollars are spent annually in the State, '(
three-fourths of it paid by farmers, to ~
educate men for professions and other m
pursuits; thefarmers get nothing, and te
are left to grope their way in igno- th
rance and poverty." Even the pit- da
tance donated to educate farmers by' co
the United States government is tak- PC
en from us and is appropriated toof
sustain the institution where our fu- be
ture masters are being trained." Is rei
the statement true ? a<
Now, these are some rather start- n'
ling statements, and if true, certainly wi
a remedy should be applied at once ye
both for the admitted "insanity" and tel
the misapplication of the funds. So far jthi
as the "insane system" goes, this is Pe
said to be a free country and every i
man can do as he likes with his own.th
You may put a lunatic in an asylum i
but you can't warrant a cure, neither "
can any legislation cure a vicious or a
insane system, or more correctly, the co
want of any system, of farming. It Ai
is charged that the farmers pay $30, ca
000 annually for college, &c., and that ho
"they get notitin g." Is this a mere flight an
of rhetoric, or is it intended as a state- in
ment of facts capable of proof? Will tu
these farmers, or the composers of the ha
"call," be kind enough to tell their P
fllow-farmers if there is, or ever has ti
been, any discrimination practiced an
against the sons of the farmers when an
entering the College oir Citadel? Do
not they stand on the same plane as
the sons of other citizens who are to
become "our future masters?" Don't
the farmers in every couhty in the
State know of farmers' sons receiving ra
*as good education as any one else, and fo&
making as good records ? In making au
this charge, they surely must have bl,
forgotten that there are now in the hc
South Carolina College some eighty to
farmer' ten s, pure and simple, and .ch
som te ortwenty more whose fath- m
ers combine some'other business with I]
that of agriculture ! At the Citadel he
there are thirty-two beneficiaries, the th
sons of farmers, representing twenty- ot
two counties, three of them being wi
from Edgefield. I1
Again we pay $24,000 annually by to
specific tax, which comes out of the wi
farmer alone, to sustain a Department th
of Agriculture." Is this a fair and tu
true statement? My idea is that this ga
tax of twenty-five cents per ton is paid wi
b the manufacturers of fertilizers for TI
which sum each one of them receives co
a number of tags, one of which is re- hc
quired to be affixed to every bag sold, th
as a guarantee that the article is real- ha
l what the analysis represented it to ta:
be; and in case fraud should be de-I hi:
tected in any samples the manufactur- ge
er would be liable, not only for heavy he
penalties, but also to loss of business, an
We might, possibly, get our fertilizers H
twenty-ive cents per ton cheaper were IW1
there no tax tag, ad no s'ecurity th
against fraud, but even that is very|w
t we pay the $25,000, why let us
ep what protection we have.
Now, fellow-farmers, do you find
a "words of truth and soberness" in
is 'call?' Can you conscientously en
re the deductions, statements and
iguage in which this matter has now
en carried on for some time? Do
u believe that "four bad crops out
five" are the results of bad legislat
2, dishonest officials, &c.? Do you,
a mass, plead guilty to pursuing
n insane system of farmiig," as you
tud charged in this call? If you
ve been oblivious of that fact until
w, are you in a condition to be
iped 1y fellow-lunatics; because, if
have come to this pass, where are
to find anybody sane enough to
ke care of himself, much less of his
low sufferers ?
Can a-convention do any good? It
ty do harm by antagonizing differ
t classes. Can it raise the price of
tton, to create a demand for manu
,tured goods? Can it start the
ieels of trade and commerce
coughout the world, in every quar
- of which stagnation and low pric
are the rule? Can a convention
avince a people of the necessity of
ving under their own vine and fig
e," and eating their own home-rais
food, and can il provide money to pay
ir back debts and "run" them for a
zrfree of charge, so as to give them
'air start? Even if it proved, to an
solute certainty, that it is not only
eaper to raise than buy our own
rses, food, &c., but imperatively
cessary, in order to save the State
im bankruptcy, why, it could devise
method nor supply any means for
aining an end so desirable. It
uld be as near accomplishment as
a mythical "forty acres and a mule"
twenty years ago for the negro!
There is no denying that the con
ion of the bulk of farmers is criti
Sin the extreme; and it is equally
dn to find the cause-bad crops,
V prices, enormous sums spent in
ano, labor and food! Can a con
ation, or legislation change the
tole system ? Not a tittle!
We are constantly urged to assert
I maintain our "rights." What are
ay, and who has deprived us of any?
ee some farmers' meetings trying to
ine what is a "farmer." Some voii
mit to membership a parson, but
doctor or lawyer need apply! The
ter class seem to be the incarnatiun
evil, and "blue laws" may be looked
in order to suppress their diaboli
practices. In fact, every class is
>resented as being in league against
r unfortunate farmer! Lawyers
ve usually been credited with more
m ordinary sagacity and some abil
to see through a wall, but it would
m they are failing in wisdom, or
y would give the poor farmer a
;t, nurse him up, get a little flesh on
bones and some money in his
ekets, and there would then be more
asure in "squeezing" him! Tbere
neither pleasure nor profit now for
rchant, doctor, lawyer or parson,
cause he is out of money, out of
per, and almost void of hope.
With no wish to impugn the mo
es of any man, I would ask the
iners to carefully study all the ut
-ances, both in the "call" and pre
>us letters and am satisfied that an
partial and cool examination of the
ss ofcharges, assertions and pre
ided facts will convince them that
Sfarmer's welfare is quite a secon
ry matter, and that their so-called
avention, if held, will simply be a
litical caucus of some aspirants for
ices, for which they may or may not
qualified, and which they hope to
Lh by throwing dust in the eyes of
:lass whom they call insane. It re
tins with the farmers to decide
tether or not they will attend a con
ation called under such flattering
ins and full of misstatements. Can
v, without sacrificing all self res
t, join such a body when its organ
rs have declared again and again
Lt for ten years past afarmeris Leg
Sture and executive offices, and the
inions" of both, "many of whom
Sfarmers," have been robbers, in
2petent, corrupt and oppressive?
e the charges true in any single
se ? If not proved, will the mass of
nest farmers tatiiely submit to such
insult to themselves and to the
in whom they have chosen from
2e to time? Will they actually join
uds with their traducers and help to
ce them in office ? These ques
ns deserve our serious attention,
d no doubt have pecurred to thous
ds before this will meet their eye.
