THE MANNING TImES.
'_IEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 1886.
B. S. DINKINS, Editor.
The contest for the Gubernatorial
ebair is warmly prosecuted in Geor
gia, by Gen. John B. Gordon, on the
one hand, and the Hon. A. 0. Bacon,
on the other. Both are gentlemen of
prominence, ability and character, and
either would fill the position with dis
tinctien. Gen. Gordon, however, will
likely be the successful competitor;
his enviable war record is a most ef
fectual advocate in these days, for the
people's suffrage. The victorious
hurrah of the old heroes' friends will
be re-echoed in the hearts of South
Carolinians for his gallant services to
this State in 1876.
A letter of considerable length, pub
lished in the News and Courier of
Monday, from Capt. B. R. Tillman,
defending the acti.on of the late Farm
ers' convention against the adverse crit
icisms made by that paper, is repro
duced in the Txm s of to-day, to the ex
elusion of editorial articles. This is
done that our readers who do not take
the Courier may see both sides c-f the
question, and to establish our dispo
sition of fairness towards Capt. Till
Capt. Tillian's Letter.
To the Fitor of The Aews and Courier: Pres
sure of farm work since the adjournment of
the "Farmers' Convention" has left me no
time to reply to the fusilade of criticism
called forth by its action.
And, first, let me correct some mistakes
and misapprehensions of your Reporter.
The effort to belittle the Convention and el
evate me on the pedestal of the demagogue
by saying, "It was Capt. Tillman's Conven
tion all the way through," &c., will not hurt
our cause in the least, because it is not true.
It was a representative body of earnest, in
telligent men taking counsel for tne good
ofthe Stite, and what little control I exer
cised over its actions arose from the fearless
mner in which I had attacked existing
abuses and the unanswerable arguments ad
duced to sustain my position. The com
mittee on resolutions, who had full control
of all bnsiness brought before the body,
consisted of one from each county, appoint
ed by each county delegation. I had noth
ing to do with their selection, and I don't
even know half a dozen of the thirty picked
men- composing that committee. What
more need be said to show that these men
went -to- Columbia with their minds already
made up, and had no desire to hear lengthy
discussion on the questions I have been
agitating and others besides.
[went into the Convention on Friday an
ticipating a long and hot debate. I was
prepared with facts and arguments to sus
tain each' and every one of my resolutions.
The-speech made at the opening of the
Qvention had required little labor and
thought, while to show the justice, the wis
dom,.the necessity of the reforms I advo
cate -ar been my sole study for months.
Tho'Convention needed no arguments other
thanIhavealready used in the Netcsand Ou
ier to ednvince it, and I am glad that I was
spared the labor of making any. The Nezes
anmd Corier will if it continues its present
bbardmeDt. give me an opportanity to
use much of this ammunition, so I may say
it is wellto be prepared even if it was not
aneoeary to shoot. But I desire to make a
tredietion right here, and that is that the
of the State will ratify most if not
all the acts of the Convention, and time will
show whether it was a Farmers' Convention
or "Cant. Tillman's Convention." I can tell
where t'he shoe pinches. It was a "Farm
ers' Convention," and was a thoroughly rep
resentative body, and every one' knows it,
but it nearly kills some people because it
agreed with "Farmbr Tillman."
The insinuation that the Convention was
drunk on Friday evening, as shown by the
use of the words "staggered mn," was un
worthy the brilliant young gentleman whose
fulland otherwise full and accurate record
ofiS~proceedings is worthy of all admnira
io.' .I hop for his own sake that it was
* tapograph'cal error, and that he wrote or
meant "stragled in" "for it cannot be shown
tbat there was any drunkenness. "N. G.
G."'was very mad about the Citadel being
abolished, on paper, bat this was an ungen
etous way to get revenge, and the accusation
02nly recoils on the accuser, if he so intend
*One more mistake in the report of the
proceedings and I will pass on to the edito
rials. Ihad nothing to do with the ap
pointmient of the committee of seven to
memorialize Congress. I did assist Mr.
Tizidal in making up the executive commit
teeat his request, asit was to he supposed
Isaas better cognizant of what men were
best suited to carry out this because it is so
industriously tried to be shown that the
Convention was an assemblage of puppets
in my hands which is totally untrue.
.The first objection raised by the Yewes and
(buier ' -~iktwhat is terms the "Tillmian
plaform 'is theappointment of a commit
tee to propose birs' and wait on the Legisla
ture next November and urge the passage so,
aa- to change these resolutions into law.
The "modern Moses" wrote his resolutions
to cover all the points he wished to make,
mnd gave no thought to the "stone tablets
of his ancient prototype." If I could have
done this with less than eleven resolutions,
I wouldhave done so. I do not feel that I
ami ordained to lead the farmers "out of the
wilderness," but I sincerely and honestly
believe the reforms embodied in these rcso
lutions would go far towards helping to ad
vance our agricultural interest: so believing,
Ishould be less than a man not to boldly
urge their adoption..
This committee, representing the large
and respectable body of farmers who recent
lymzet and authorized it to present these
matters to the next Legislature, will exercise
great influence, even if that body shall be
oif men other than farmers. We will, if we
can, send men to the Legislature to "take
It.* But it is surely permissible to show the
justice and expediency of our action. One
simple fact will show not only why this is
nedessary, but that The Netos and ourier is
as ignorant on many of' these questions as
the members of the General Assembly
are likely to be. It says:
"The proposition to have the secretary
(commissioner) chosen by a board of agri
culture, which itself shall be elected by the
delegates to a class convention, to take the
place and assume the duties of a State offic
ur, was assuredly not well weighed before it
was- promulgated and adopted. Such a
-proposition, we are sure, winl never find far
or in a South Carolina Legislature, evtn
though it were composed entirely of farmers.'
"Let not the shoemaker go beyond his
last." The Newes ad Courier, too, better stick
to "free trade" and let agr'iculture alone.
The legitimate duties of this oflicer would
be the encouragement, protection and ad
vancement of our agricultural interests.
The collection of the phosphatte royalty
should be given to the comptroller general,
ad in all humility ? ask, why may not the
farmers of Sonth Carolina be allowed to
control that department of the government
which they alone support, which is, or
iught to be, devoted entirely to advancing
their interests? This method of choosing
the secretary, has existed in Ohio since 1h47.
The same system of t'gricultural adminis
tration exists in Maine, in Connecticut, in
Iidiana, in Illinois, in Iowa and many oth
er Northern States.
If The Setes anti Curier can tell us why
the agricultural societies, free from political
iuunvs, ennat s..icrt a better boarditha
the Legislature, and why the board thu!
chosen cannot select their own executive of
ficer and thus secure a prompt and efficient
one. I would like to have it do so. Without
the power to dismiss an incompetent or un
worthy officer, the board can accomplish
nothing. and if the Legislature cannot trust
the farmers to manage their own department
we had better abolish it altogether.
I will next briefly notice the Xews and
Courier's bookkeeping. They say "figures
won't lie," but I have alwaysthought it de
pended on who set down the figures, and
with what motives. As the Xews awd Couri
er enters some "words" from my speech in
its column of "promise," and then charges
up $300,000 increased taxes in the column
of "performance" alongside. I may well ask
permission to show that its figures "lie" if I
can. And, first, let me say that the present
value of the plant of the Mississippi College
does not represent its cost. The original
cost of the buildings and farm was in the
neighborhood of $100,000. There have been
additions in stock and other appliances
out of each annual appropriation during the
five years since it started, but a large per
cent. of its present valuation is increased in
the value of the farm by a proper system of
cultivation and natural increase in the large
herds of cattle, &c., &c.
Rome was not built in a day, and we do
not ask or expect that our agricultural col
lege shall come, like Minerva from the brow
of Jove, armed and equipped for battle. All
we ask is to plant it on the right foundation
and l-t it grow. An appropriation of S7d,
000 fr -:. the tax on the fertilizers, which
can be i. ;ed the first year to build and equip
it, is all we want. The board of agriculture
already possesses a complete chemical labo
ratory which would thus not have to be
bought. Many of the books in the State li
brary can be spared for the agricultural li
brary. Convict labor can be used in exca
vating the foundations of the buildings
and in making brick, &c., provided they
can be spared from that blessed "Columbia
ditch," and I guarantee that with these helps
and with the money mentioned, the college
can be opened on the 1st of January, 18SS.
As for the experimental station, if Con
gress don't give the $15,000 then the faculty
will, as they now do in Mississippi and
Michigan, carry on experiments without it.
My information is that the bill will pass if
it is reached on the Calendar before Con
gress adjourns. If it is appropriated the
money becomes available on July prox., and
if the present trustees of the South Carolina
College spend it on the agricultural annex
at Columbia, the demand next winter for a
separation of the agricultural college from
the South Carolina College would be met by
the argument that the experimental station
had already been established at Columbia,
and another link would be forged in the
chain which now binds the two institut
ions together. This argument, which I us
ed in the Convention, overthrew all of Col.
Duncan's specious arguments and promises
on behalf of the trustees, and the farmers
passed the resolution because they prefer a
whole loaf hereafter to a crumb now. If the
legislature grants our wishes in December
next, then the experimental station can be
provided for in planning the college.
I am satisfied, also, that there is going to
be a lively competition among the counties
to secure the college, and I hope to enter
Edgefeld in the race if I can wake her up.
This element in the estimated cost will
amount to no small item, I imagine. If we
allow the present appropriation for the Cit
adel to keep it up as a school for girls; if
we give the South Carolina College $5,700 in
place of the land scrip fund and its tuition
fees, both institutions, it would seem, could
be thus bountifully sustained, so that there
would be really no call for any money save
Noy, as regards the Constitutional con
vention, I cannot see why it should cost ex
actly $100,000. Why not say $1,000,000?
It would appear that the changes needed in
our organic law could be secured in at least
as short a time as the Legislature takes to
make an annual addition of patches to that
alreads over-patched volume, the Revised
Statutes, which won't stay revised, and I
feel sure the s.ivings which might be secur
ed in our county government, by a return
to our old way of managing these things,
say nothing of many other leaks which
might be stopped, will amount, many times
over in one year, to what this conventio'n
would cost. There are many other urgent
arguments why we should have a Constitut
ional convention, but I will not give them
here. I will sum up as follows:
Additional expenditures recommended:
Real Agricultural and Mechanical.
Additional tax on fertilizers......25,000
Made up to South Carolina College
for land scrip................. 5,700
Cost of Constitutional convention 30,000
There are those who believe a constitut
ion of our own making is worth this much,
if for no other reason than to call it our Con
stitution. The present instrument under
which we live was made by negroes, traitors
and carpet-baggers. It was forced down
our throats at the point of the bayonet. It
has provisions, mandatory at that, which
have not and cannot be obeyed. Our legis
lators scorn and spit upon it when. it suits,
and give as excuse that they are obliged to
disobey some of its provisions, and thus
they have lost respect for it. If for no oth
er reason we need a new one and should
But let us see v;hether the $140,000, which
is a liltle less than one mill, cannot be got
ten w'ithout additional taxation, The work
on the State-House should be stopped as
soon as a good roof is put on and needed
repairs made. We need education more
than we do a grand State-House, Seventy
five thousand dollars can be obtained right
here, and without searching for a Legislat
ue anxious to be economical can easily ob
tai the rest and still reduce taxes. If the
farmers do their duty in sending men to the
next General Assembly there can be many
thick-padded places found that will bear sli
cing. They can find "places to cut" if they
want to. The Farmers' Conventio~n has
been blamed~ because they did not go into
details. We were not a Legislature and we
knew it. We intend to elect one, though,
that will carry out our recommendations if
I will in another article notice some other
things which have been said about the Far
mer's Convention and its works.

Hamburg, May 17, 1886.
A REPORTER PUNISHED.
On the occasion of the recent visit
of the young ladies of the Columbia
Female College to Florida, a reporter
for the Jacksonville Herald, by reason
of a witty article published in that
paper, at the expense of the college
girls, brought down on his head the
dire vengeance of Dr. Darby, the pres
ident of the college. The reporter,
though no doubt, innocent of any de
sign gr'eater than to furnish a humor
ous column to his readers, merited
the wrath of the Dr., who acted very
properly. The account taken from
the Columbia Register' says:
On passing through Jacksonville a report
er of the Hferald made up and published in
the issue of his paper that (Thursday) after
noon a pretended interview with one of the
College girls, in which he put into her con
versation all the slang he had rehashed from
an old newspaper version of a similar inter
view with the Vassar girl.
On the return of our party to Jacksonville
Dr. Frank Darby called at the office of the
Herald an~d required that an apology should
be made for the wanton disrespect shown by
the reporter, and was assured by the writ
er that it was only intended as a jeu d'espril,
and that an aone.ide would be m'~de in the
following issue of the paper. Later in the
day as Dr. Frank Darby was on his way to
vith some insulting word.-, whtn lie prompt
. struck him, and as the reporter drew a
istol Dr. Darby knockel him do-wn, when
.is friends carried him of, and Dr. Darby
oined his party at the depot in tune to take
Served him right.
The United States Court.
This Court seems to be a big farce
in South Carolina, and this assertion
is made with great regret. Judge
Bryan is a man of the highest charac
ter, but his age incapacitates him
from discharging the grave duties of
his high office with that ability and
expedition a proper administration of
the law demands. Col. Youmans
seems to enjoy the perquisities of the
office of District Attorney, while Ex
Judge Carpenter and-Wingate,
both unpleasant relics of radicalism,
do the work.-Pee Dee Index.
From an editorial that appears in
last week's issue of the Pee Dee In
dex and copied in this week's issue of
the Advertiser, we are informed that
the office of United States District
Attorney in South Carolina, while
nominally filled by the Hon. Leroy F.
Youmans, the duties in the offices are
performed by one Wingate and Ex
Judge Carpenter, two noted worthies
of the carpet-bag Radical regime who
found their way out after the war to
feast and fatten themselves upon the
misfortunes of our oppressed and
insulted people.. Why is it that these
men are kept in the discharge of the
duties of the office? Mr. Youmans
was appointed by a Democratic Pres
ident as the people of the State sup
posed because he was a Democrat.
If Mr. Youmans is responsible for the
continuance of these men in authori
ty it is time the people of the State
knew it. It has been more than once
hinted that he retains them in office.
We shall be sorry to learn that it is
so, but if such is the truth the sooner
the people know it the better.-Ches
Williamsburg Herald: Every Ameri
ern citizen has, theoretically, a part in
the sovereignty of the State. One of
his gravest and most responsible du
ties as a citizen, is the exercise of this
power at the ballot-box. If incompe
tent and corrupt men fill offices, elec
tors have themselves to blame. The
voter should let no personal motive
influence him, nor make any promise
of his vote for friendship's sake, but
cast it for the best man and the pub
lic benefit. By all means avoid
promising to vote for any one. Keep
it untrameled until election day, and
then cast it for the candidate who an
swers most satisfactorily the following
questions: Is he able? Is he so
ber? Is he reliable and patriotic?
Williamsburg Record: At this writ
ing, the 18th of May, the crop pros
pect in this county and throughout
the State, so far as we have been able
to ascertain, is not encouraging. We
have recently conversed with farmers
from various parts of thl' county, and
they all concur in the opinion that the
outl6ok at this time is unpromising,
and more so than for many years past.
They estimate that at least one-third
of the cotton crop is not up, and that
even where it has come up the stand
is bad and unsatisfactory. This is all
attributable to the want of rain, and
to the cool weather that has prevailed
for several weeks. Those who plant~
ed cotton early, and while the earth
was moist, obtained a good stand, but
the cold nights and incessant winds
have destroyed a great deal of it, and
it is an exception to hear a farmer say
he has a good stand of cotton. Cot
ton that was planted later is still in
the ground and will mostprobably re
