The Killing of W. W. Barrow.
The unfortunate killing of Barrow
by Shannon is greatly deplored by our
people. Mr. Barrow was a young
man of considerable attainments, in
tellectual, honest, industrious and
affable in manner, he bade fair to
bring forth in maturer manhood, a
harvest of usefulness. Mr. Shannon
is from one of the best families of the
State. Liberally educated, polished
manners, and chivalrous, he made
many warm friends wherever he went.
The immediate causes leading to
this most lamentable and unfortunate
affair is enveloped in mystery and as
yet beyond the reach of public scruti
Speculations and theories are rife
over the country and in behalf of sim
ple justice we would add a word of
caution here. In a case like this, in
which so much feeling is made
manifest, it would be well for all good
citizens who respect the majesty of
the law and would have even handed
justice meted out to withhold expres
sions of opinion prejudicial to the ac
cused, in view of the fact that we are
living under the benign, yet powerful
p rotection of our constituted au
orities, who stand ever ready and
able to punish the guilty, when such
punishment is called down upon the
lead of any criminal by a Jury of his
fellow citizens. Before this tribunal
then let the case be submitted, un
bridled by previous passion worked
up by discussing too freely, what, as
has been said before, is wrapped in
Mr. Shannon, though having every
opportunity, made no effort to escape,
but very quietly surrendered himself
into the custody of the Sheriff, aid
was committed to jail.
It is a fact deeply to be regretted,
that. our able contemporary, the News
and Courier, while conscious of its
mighty power in moulding and sway
ing public opinion, without .under
standing any more of this difficulty
than the vague and indefinite para
graphs in its own columns, should pre
scribe "a rope," as the remedy. At
the least, show a forbearance equal to
the silence of its columns in one or
tiwo recent cases, where an opinion
might have been given, with the facts
of the case, certainly more apparent,
han in this instance.
THE STATE CANVASS.
We want to see the method of elect
g our State-officers changed. With
o-ewhelming Democratic majorities,
as is shown by every election retur:i.
we have nothing to fear from our for
mer political opponents, the Republi
We send delegates to Columbia, and
they choose candidates-w h i c h
amounts to electing them-and the
gople at large in very many instane
es know nothing of them until the set
day comes along for them to grind
out the samie old threadbare speech
that has done duty-on many a similar
occasion; and whether the people are
pleased or not, they must vote, for
the candidate of the party."
The objection to this plan is, that
many of the delegates who have to
ake these nominations are them
selves politicians, and can open the
way for "official trading," thus secur
ing the nowdnanion of parties, not be
cause of their worth, but because they
meet certain requirements of the pol
We propose that the race be declar
*ed an open one, and let as many as
--see fit enter the field and canvass the
State, county by county, speaking
once in each county, and let all the
*candiates be heard from. The peo
pie can then judge of the merits of the
various candidates; we-will have some
of the best talent in the country in the
* field, and the expression of their
',views on the various topics of- public
interest will enlighten the people.
This wIB. destroy the machine-like
sameness of the present method and
throw new life and vigor into our
party. It cannot be objected that)
this plan would be too expensive, for
in a race of this kind every candidate
would have to bear his own expense,
and the people in every county would
be too glad to break the monotony of
labor by spending a day in listening
to the speeches of their leading men;
indeed this system would be less ex
-pensive, for there would then be no
necessity for outlay on the part of the
Executive Committee in sending
aronnd the "chosen few" to keep up
the Democratic spirit. When the
-canvass is completed the people might
then choose their delegates, who could
by having the merits of the various
candidates before them, select our of
ficials from merit alone. *
* URRAH EOR PRESIDENIT CLETE
To be married to-day, this even
igat the Executive Mansion, Grover
ClvlnPresident of these United
States, to Miss Francis Folsoni, the
worthy daughter of her esteemed
father. Gossipers are effervescent
with excitement over the event, and
the newspapers are ecstatically happy.
With commendable zeal all have la
bored earnestly to lead our meek
?resident out of tbe labarynth of en
tanglements belonging to bachelor
dom to the felicitous haven of matri
mnony. After marrying him, now let
him alone. Don't attempt to share
with him his domestic peace, but like
Israel's hero on Mt. Pisgah, comtem
plate afar off.
Judge Cothran is quite a favorite
*with the Sumter people. The judge
is apolished gentleman and a sound
lawyer, and we nope he may live long
to adorn the Bench of the State.
Some of Judge Cothran's friends want
Sim to go toCongress, but we areout
and out opposed to this being done.
The State needs him where he is.
We heartily concur with our neigh
bor in the above, and hope that Judge
Cothran will not consent to quit the
Bench to fill any other position.
For Farmer Tillman's Eye.
To the Editor of the Newcs and Cou
rier: Mr. B. R. Tillman is a hard man
to keep on the track. He is after the
lawyers in pretty much the same way
that Maine went for Governor Kent.
But while he will probably not admit
that the legal fraternity has or ever
will do anything for the good of the
State, he may at least be generous
enough to relieve them from blame
for the acts of the farmers.
Hoping that he will do this and
merely to- keep the records straight
for future discussions, permit me to
say that if he will refer to the other
Senate Journal of 1883 he will find
that a bill to relieve the department
of agriculture of the expenses con
nected with the phosphate litigation
was favorably reported in the Senate,
and, on motion of Senator Callison,
was unanimously rejected. Mr. Cal
lison was the Senator from Edgefield,
a farmer, and, I think, a mechanic.

REV. A. J. WITHERSPOON, D. D.
This distinguished philanthropist
who has devoted his life to the work
of improving the condition of seamen,
and-has established a "Home" in New
Orleans, whose usefulness has com
mended it to the press and people of
that great emporium, will present the
claims of his work to our people at
the First Presbyterian Church to
night at 8.30 P. M.
Dr. Witherspoon is a native of the
historic "W axhaws" settlement in
Lancaster County, and a graduate of
the South Carolina College and Col
umbia Theological Seminary, and has
many intimate friends and associates
in our midst who will be pleased to
hear him and bid him God-speed in
his noble self-sacrificing work, a work
whose importance to the interests of
the sailor, and through him upon the
world at large, has been specially rec
ognized by the Presidents of the Re
publics-and nearly all the crowned
heads of Europe.-Columbia Daily
"Time is more valuable than gold."
A proper and industrious employ
ment of the days allotted to man is
seldom attended by other than bene
ficial consequences. If we look into
the causes of misfortune, which mark
the career of the human family, we
discover that what is generally attrib
uted to the over-ruling power of des
tiny, proceeds most generally from
mis-employment of time. Persever
ance, in almost any undertaking, is
attended with success, but if we pay
at the commencement of a pursue
and let every obstacle turn us aside
and discourage us, we need never
hope to attain the object of our hopes.
Year after year is broken from the
chain of our being, and while we sigh
over hours which have passed unprof
itably, we should take warning for the
future. Would you gain wisdom?
Make a diligent use of time. Would
you fill your coffers with worldly
lucre? Count the moments as they
fly, with miserly avarice, for every
hour lost in trifling, is a wrinlrle stol
en from the brow of time. Be up and
at your studies with the lark oh!
youth, for with every year added to
your life, the vigor will be stolen from
your mind and the energy from your
imagination. Mns. CaMS. Lm-NG.
Charleston, S. C.
Another Letter from Mr.
26theEditor of the2eos aad Courier: Be
fore touching upon other points in the work
of the "Farmers' Convention" and the criti
cisms upon it, I desire to notice briefly some
of the arguments of the Columbia Rte'ster
against allowing the Agricultural societies,
in convention assembled, to elect the Board
The Register says: "The whole scheme
provides that the agricultural departmen.t
shall be put under control of a board elect
ed by a popular farmiers' convention." "We
see, then, over $200,000 a year that is pro
posed to turn over to the care and manage
ment of one who is to be elected out of
The farmers of South Carolina have been
"out of doors," so far as exertingany appre
iable influence on State affairs is concerned,
for many years. We don t propose to re
main "out" any longer; and the man, or set
of men, who think we can be kept "out"
will find his mistake. But, as I hve re
peatedly urged, the'board of agriculture
has no legitimate connection with the phos
phate royalty, and the farmers do not care
to have anything to do with it. But we in
tend to take care of the departmni't of agri
.culture and use the money which we alone
contribute for its support in such a way as
we think will best advance and protect our
interests as farthers. We will see that no
more of this money is paid to lawyers in the
Legislature for any purpose whatever.
There has been a great blowing of horns
over the resolution exhonorating the com
missioner of all blame in this matter. I was
not in the hall at the time this resolution
was put and carried. If I had been I
should have called attention to two facts.
The commissioner had warrant of law for
his acts as I very well know, and I attach
no blame to him, but (1) Why the suits
that had already been commenced a short
time before could not have been transferred
to the attorney general and solicitors may'
be explained by the fact that the lawyars in
the Legislature did not care to inti:fere with
a case one of their number already had on
hand; and (2) How came the Senate, in~
which this attorney is a shining light, to re
fuse to join the House in taking the money
of the agricultural department out of the
control of the board after my exposures last
December and make special appropriations
for the same from the treasury? Was it a
"Tickle me, Jimmie, tickle me true,
You tickle me and I'll tickle vou?"
A leading Senator was getting nice slices
of "agricultural pie" and "the best interests;
of the farmers and of the State required that
the departmeut be not crippled by this in
terference with its management." This
same Senate has persistently refused to re
peal the lien law, end the farmers in those
counties which elect Senators this year
ought to be very careful whom they sead to'
represent them in that most "conservative
body." I desire to say before leaving this
quetion that I in no way inspired or advis
ed this investigation of the Chisoh~n Island
suit. It was a legitimate subject of inquiry
and the vote of confidence in Col. Butler's[
oneration of all parties connected with it
from blame. The farmers accepted Col.
Butler's explanation as satisfactory, so far as
he is concerned, but they do not approve of
any such jobs.
To return to the election of the board of
agriculture: The Register says it is to be
chosen under my resolution by a "popular
farmers' convention." The resolution reads:
"A Convention composed of delegates from
each county agricultural society." There is
a vast difference in such a convention and
'a popular farmers' convention," such as the
one recently assembled. Those who have
tried to build up a county agricultural soci
ety know that the men who will take the
trouble to give the time necessary to such
work are the very best of our agricultural
population. I do not hesitate to say that if
the county societies have this duty imposed
on them, it will, as it has done elsewhere, be
an incentive to keep them alive, and be the
means of enlarging their membership and
usef alness, and this annual agricultural con
vention will compare favorably with the
Legislature in every respect. But this sys
tem is now new or untried. A comparison
of its workings at the North with our pres
ent political system will satisfy even the
Register, if it can be satisfied with anything
emanating from the "untrained colt" who
has suggested it to our farmers. I may be
pardoned if I suggest to the Register to stick
to its "statistics," and it will command more
The next question which has harrowed
men's minds and caused argument and
much unfavorable comment is the propos
ition to double the privilege tax on fertilizers
to support the college, &c. None of the re
ports of the proceedings have ever given the
argument I used to convince the convention
of the justice and expediency of this resolu
tion. It was this: The farmers will have the
same privilege they now do to send their
children to the University and to the girl's
school, the same as other classes, and they
will largely avail themselves of it, while. the
agricultural college will be patronized al
most soley by the farmers; but the main
reason was the desire to give this college a
liberal and pernanent support from the State.
The history of the Michigan and Mississip
pi colleges is one of the trial and niggardly
appropriations. If this agricultural college
is to go to the Legislature every year asking
for money for equipment and support the
old fogies who disbelieve in industrial and
technical training, and cannot believe any
"good thing can come out of Nazareth,"
would be continually growling and finding
fault. The institution, starved for lack of
funds, would fail to achieve the results hop
ed for, and the "I told you so's" would all
fall at my door. The last letter I received
from Gen. Stephen D. Lee said that the
Legislature of Mississippi had only given
them about $30,000 this year, and that with
that sum they could not keep the 412 stu
dents now there, but would have to cut
down to 300 or 350. It is generally known
that this college has turned away a large
number of applicants for want of room. It
is shameful for it to have to refuse applicants
for want of support.
I have been accused of trying to "deceive
the farmers" by taxing them without their
knowledge; of "dodging around," &c. We
have had loud protestations of willingness
to support the college by direct appropriation
from the treasury by those who were a while
since bitterly opposed to any agricultural
college but one connected with the South
Carolina College. It is a queer way of "de
ceiving" men to tell 300 of them how the
money is to be raised, and mostly every
newspaper in the State has published the
plan, as I knew they would. I am not wed
ded to this scheme. If assured of a liberal
support from the Legislature to the college I
will willingly forego it, but I again repeat
that no farmer worthy the name will grudge
this pittance of "indirect tax" to be even
secure of pure and unadulterated fertilizers,
to say nothing of the college and other
work of the board of agriculture in hold
ing farmers' institutes and conducting ex
periments, &c. I am not dealing in senti
mental politics or mere theorizing, and I
can conceive of no scheme which promises
so much at such small cost, and whether it
is class legislation or not I always thought
those who derived benefit from a measure
ought to pay for it. At the same time we
reiterate the demand that the tax on fertili
zers be abolished, or that they who pay it
control its disbursement.
There has been much talk of the farmers
"making the department of agriculture a
power for good by co-operating with the
As soon as we endeavor to do so by ask
ing to have control both of the department
and of the cemmissioner too, we are met
with the cry from the worshipers or bureau
cracy, "The conimissioner is a bonded offi
cer and must not be elected out of doors."
Farmers cannot be trusted with money; they
might steal it. The Register did not say this,
but the inference is too plain to be mnisun
derstood. If one hundred and sixty farm
ers are put to watch over that "agricultural
pie," never again will any of it be wasted.
"Mr. Tillman and his friends" arc not con
vincud that this department is conducted
"literally without expense to the people,"
and the Register well knows it. If this mon
ey is paid by nobody, and does not come
out of the pockets of the "people," let us
raise all the State tax that way, and stop all
I will now notice The Keics and Courer's
comments on placing the college under the
control of the board of agriculture without
allowirng the mechanics a voice in its man
agement. I am perfectly willing to give the
mechanics one on two representatives on
the board, if a way can be found to secure a
real bon'ia fude representative of that calling.
But, considering the fact that the resolutions
propose to tax farmers alone to sustain this
college, and that the pro redat share of the
mechanics in the land scrip fund would be
very small, I think the farmers might be
trusted to take care of the mechanical feat
ure of the institutian, especially when all
the intelligent ones among them realize that
a diversity of pursuits and the introduction
of manutactures among us are among the
best means for rendering farming itself re
But the Se'tes amd Cmrier has even found
grounds to doubt whether we can count on
getting the land scrip fund at all. I ac
knowledge that the wording of the Act of
Congress granting this land scrip is ambig
uous and very wide in its scope, but there
is no getting round that provision which
says this money should be devoted to main
taining "at least one college where the lod
jag object shall be, without excluding other
scientific and classical studies and including
military tactics, to teach such branches o'f
learning as are related to agriculture and the
mechanie arts." That word "leading" can
not be gotten over by any amount of hair
splitting, and the fact that "twenty-three of
the wealthiest and most prosperous agricil
turnd States in the Union" have misappro
printed this money by tacking on anagi
cultural annex to their Stato universities,
where law and literature are the "leading"
studies, only p~rov'e that the prejudices of
classically educated men have been too
strong in those States to permit the law to
be carried out as it was intended. Farmers
hlave been sneered at and imposed upon
since the world began almost. But indus
brnal and technical education are fast gain-1
Eng on the classcta bourbon, and practical
aien everywhere recognize the fact that the
world moves, and learns something every
Say. Whatever becomes of the land scrip
fund it will not be contend.ed that the South
Carolina College makes agriculture and the
nechanie arts "leading" objects of study or
;hat military tactics are taught there.
These "military tactics" are our cause of
Iuarrel against the citadel. That institut
on has the army oflicer as its instructor in*
nilitary science, who of right and according~
o the intention of the law should be at the
gricultural College to teach military tac
ics." All the "real agricultural colleges"
hat are making agriculture their "leedig~
bject" in other States have this WVest Poin t-;
r as a professor, instead ot his teaching in
merely military school like the Citadel or
merly clansicnl school like the South Cnr-j
olina College. But there are many other
stronger reasons why the Citadel should
"go." It, in many respects, is a counterpart
of the South Carolina College. The course
of study is much the same in both institu
tions, and it is not apparent to taxpayers
why two colleges should be kept up when
one can supply all the derand for that kind
of education in South Carolina. It will not
be denied that the South Carolina College,
if it be relieved of its country cousin, the
Agricultural Annex, and is given three or
four more professors, can easily supply 'll
the demuand for polite learning, or a "liber
al education" as it is termed. It will not be
denied that the State needs a technical and
industrial school where the brain, the hand
and the eve shall all be trained together and
where a boy may reasonably hope to be fit
ted to become a farmer, an engineer or mni
chanic while acquiring a thoroughly prac
tical English education. Such the agricul
tural college will be if it follow in the -foot
steps of those of Michigan and Mississippi.
The military feature so dear to some peo
ple's hearts, can and ought to be grafted on
the agricultural college, like it is in both of
those States, and the "cadets" can drill just
as well and be just as proud coming from
such an institution as if they came frain the
Citadel. Gen. Lee's Mississippi cadets
made just as fine show in New Orleans last
year at the Exposition as our "dudes" made
recently at Savanna'i. The ability, to "or
der arms" with a "perfect cadence" does not
fit a ian to become a breadwinner or add
anything to the State's productive capacity.
The war is over and we are whipped. The
Citadel, as a purely military school, is an
anachronism, an effort to rebuild a shatter
ed idol which toppled to the ground when
the Confederacy went down. No doubt the
heart of the grand old hero. Jefferson Davis,
the "man without a country," yearned to
wards the Confederate uniform, and he
longed to shake the hands of the youths who
wore it. It is natural, and we hope it did
him good. There is no doubt his kind
words and flattering allusions to the Citadel
salved over any rankling caused by my
harmless witticism. Still the fact remains,
and it cannot be gainsaid, that a merely
military education is too ornamental and
valueless in this State at this time. We
need anything, everything, more than we do
soldiers, and it is not just or right to tax the
people to educate these beneficiaries and
pay their board while many of them are per
fectly able to pay their way, while thousands
of other boys, just as desirving, whose fath
ers are taxed to support these 'elect"cannot
get even a common school education.
By the system of student labor obtaining
at the Michigan and the Mississippi colleges
all students acquire habits of iiustry,
and are also thus assisted to pay their way
through college. The average cost o-ver and
above their work to 3.57 students in the Mis
sissippi Agricultural and Mechanical Col
lege last year for all expenses, (except cloth
ing,) board, washing, fuel and lights, &c.,
was S52,81 each for nine months; while six
exceptionally industrious young men paId
their way entirely, and these same six stu
dents are among the first in their classes.
It may well be asked why Sonth Carolina
should pick out sixty eight pets, many of
them well off, to educate at State expense,
rather than extend a helping hand to any'
and every deserving young man who is wil
ling to try to educate himself? There may
be a good reason for it, but I confess I can
not see it. Is it just or right?
