WHAT A REVENGE!
In the late discussion of cotton
weights between Colonel S. W. Nel
son of this county and the Charleston
Cotton Exchange, the public will re
member that several afidavits, from
outside parties, were published by
Colonel Nelson, substantiating his
eharge that cotton shipped to Charles
ton, invariably lost in weight. One
of the affidavits published was made,
by Messrs. W. F. Turner & Bro., mer-1I
chants of Clarendon. The affidavits
contained no'ebarge or suspicion of
fraud, but simply stated that the cot
ton bales of this firm shipped to their
factors, Messrs. Smythe & Adger, of
Charleston lost in weight. What fol
lows was told to us by Mr. RE. F. Tur
ner, the father of Messrs. Turner &
These gentlemen visited Charleston
last week for the purpose of a settle
ment with Messrs. Smythe~.& Adger,
and perfecting arrangements for an
other year. The settlement was satis
factorily made, Messrs. Turner & Bro.
receiving forty-seven dollars and a
few cents, the overplus to their credit.
A contract for another year was then
proposed, but this Messrs. Smythe &
Adger refused. The time for revenge
had come. Turner & Bro. were re
minded of their affidavits and told
they must go elsewhere. In vain
they protested that no harm was in
tended, no charge or accusation made
but only a simple fact stated. No,
they had dared to disobey so great a
man as Messrs. Smythe & Adger, not-;
vithstaiding threats of prosecution,
and they must be punished. It is very
true that Messrs Smythe & Adger
are masters of their own money and
have the right to do with it as they
please; but is it manly to seek such
revenge? Because Ethey hold a posi
tion high in life on account of the in
Suence of their gold, is it right to
strike such a.blow at the prosperity of
their less fortunate fellow man? A
country merchant, regardless of the
magnitude of his business, is, with
few exceptions, obliged to have some
one to act as a factor, to furnish him
means through the year; and from this
necessity of the country merchant the
Charleston cotton factor reaps his rich
, Messrs. Smythe & Adger have been
the factors of Turner & Bro. They
abandon them to avenge an alleged
injury. On another person Messrs.
Saaythe &Adger may have caused 1r
reparable pecuniary destruction, but
happily Messrs. Turner & Bro. are not
solely dependent on them foxz assist
Was this treatmfetfTrer & Bro.
:manly? Did Messrs. Smythe & Ad
ger treat Turner & Bro., in a manner
that the noble and the brave wouldI
like to emulate ? Another question:
Is their treatment of Turner & Bro.
calculated to allay the feeling that ex
ists in certain parts of the country
that cotton shipped to Charleston fac
tors does really lose in weight. These
gentlemen cannot force people to be
lieve that they are honest, their deal
ings with their fellow man must do
HON.',AS. E. TINDAL IN NEWS
We have given the greater portion
of our editorial space to a reportorial
interview with Hon. Jas. E. Tindal,
published in Monday's News and Cou
rier. It will be read with interest by
all Mr. Tindal's friends in Clarendon.
The News and Courier has titled Mr.
-Tindal Dr. which is something new
to that gentleman's friends at home.
Dr. J, E. Tindal, president of the recent
Farmers' Convention and member of the
Honse of Representatives from Clarendon
County, was mn the city several days last
week arranging for his planting operations
next year, purchasing supplies, and visiting
his numerous friends and acquaintances
here. Dr. Tindal was the guest of Mr.
Stephen Thomas, Jr., during his stay in
Charleston. He is one of the most progress.
nve, successful, and at the some time conser
vative representatives of the agricultural
element of the State. He has two planta
tions in the western part of Clarendon Coun
ty, near the Santee River, and, what is more
to the point, he plants them successfully.
In answer to a question about the crops in
his section, Dr. Tindal said to a Reporter
that the crops were not as good as they might
have been, but that still they were not so
bad as they are reported to have been in the
up-country, where dreadful freshets had
occurred. The merchants in his section re
ported that their bills had been fairly well
paid up, and the farmers, while not rich in
money perhaps, had made enough corn and
provisions to keep them from want, and
were cheerfully making preparations for the
oming crop, hoping for better results.
"Any tobacco planted in your neighbor
hiood?"' inquired the Reporter.
"I think Dr. Ingram made an experiment
in tobacco cultivation, the result of which I
am not able to give 3 ou," replied .Mr. Tin
dal. "I know that the experiment was un
der the direction of his son-in-law, who is a
Virginian and familiar with the process of
tobacco growing, and I have no doubt that
it 'will prove a sircess. I suppose, however,
the Netes anid ounrier will hear from it.'
The converatio~n then drifted to the sub
ject of the agricultural bills introduced dar
ing the last session of the General Assemblyd.
one of which, the experimental station bill,
was assd in a modified form, and the oth
agricultural bnreau, was postponed by the
Senate to the next session. after it had pass
ed the House practically without opposition.
It may also be mentioned that Dr. Tindal
took an active interest in the passage of the
Ciiudel and College appropriations, which
were, however. not opposed by members
who are interested in tho farmers' movement.
Referring to the agricultural bureau bill Dr.
Tindal said :
"I think the Senate made a mistake in
postponing the bill. It is not my purpose
nor my desire to impugn the motives of
those Senators who fought the bill, but I
shall simply give you, as you ask it, some
thing in reply to the argument of those who
effected its postponement. The reasons
that were advanced against the bill will not
bear the light of investigation, and, in my
opinion, the Senate will agree to the meas
ure at the next session. Let me say at the
outset that, as you will remember, I with
drew the first bill introduced looking to the
establishment of an agricultural college, and
I did so for the reason that, in my opinion,
the State cannot well afford it at this time.
When the State House is completed, we can
then, without increasing the taxes, under
take the building of such a College as is
needed. The annual appropriations now
made for the work on the State House will
be sufficient to build, equip, and start the
agricultural college. Hence, I sought only
to have the Legislature"furnished with such
information on the subject of agricultural
colleges as would enable them to act intelli
gently when the time came for its establish
"To return, however, to the bill to reor
ganize the agricultural bureau. As I stated
on the floor of the House, the purpose of the
bill was not intended to cast any reflection
upon the management of the department in
the past. One of the objections urged against
the bill in the Senate was that it was, in ef
fect, class legislation. This will not hold
water. In electing a judge, is not the selec
tion made from the lawyers? In organizing
the board of health, are not doctors selected?
It is, therefore, simple common-sense legis
lation to select agriculturalists to manage a
department which is avowedly created for
the benefit of the agricultural interests of
"Again, it was urged in the Senate-for
you will remember that there was no oppo
sition in the House-that there would be
too many ex officio members of the board un
der the proposed re-organization. To this
the answer is simpR euough: We simply
seek to place the board at the head of the
farmers' movement, as it is called. It is ad
mitted that there must be organization and
concert of action among the farmers of the
State if they expect to better their condition.
Mind, I do not mean their political condi
tion, but their actual material condition.
Now, if there is to be such an association,
what better head could it have than a board
established, supported and recognized by
the State, in view of the paramount import
ance of fostering, and caring for its agricul
tural interests? Don't you see -that when
the farmers meet once a year a board organ
ized as this to promote agriculture will real
ly benefit them. They would be enlighten
ed by the board and by the interchange of
views and experiences of the members
would give fresh ideas, suggest new thoughts
and subjects and thus help out the board in
the very work for which it was created-the
development and perfection of the agricul
ture of the State. In addition to this the re
organization will effect a very desirable ob
ject-it will bring the members of the board
closer to the people 'and make them better
acquainted with their wants."
-It has been suggested," interposed the
interviewer, "that the farmers movement
had a political significance."
"I know that," replied Dr. Tindal, "but
the answer to that suggestion is obvious.
The passage of this bill would at once elim
inate politics entirely from the farmara
movement, if there ever was any politics in
it. If, as we ask in this bill, the agricultur
al board is placed at the head of the farmers'
movement, there can be no lities in it.
Te farmers' association wola have at its
heae . board selected by the Legislature and
confined by law in its deliberations solely
to questions connected with the agricultural
interests of the State. Why the bill itself
would necessarily eliminate politics from
the farmers' movement by making it one of
the departments of the State Government."
"You said that thereiwas no intention to
cast any reflection upon the past manage
ment of the board ?"
"Yes, I said so, and I repeat it. What we
sought to accomplish by this bill was to di
rect the energies of the board in a new and
what to many of us seems a imore practical
and profitable channel. We want to take
charge of the agricultural education of the
people; to develop our agricultural resources
by combining our intelligence at home and
not by looking to immigration from abroad
to help us. I allude now to the efforts of
the bureau in the past to encouragefimmi
gration by advevtising our advantages, our
resources and our mineral and other wealth.
What I mean is this: I admit the desirabili
ty of having capital to come to our State, but
capital is shy and as a general thing level
headed. Capital cannot be induced to come
here by hand-books alone. If you show to
the world that our people are successful in
their own aflairs, that our farmers are mak
ing morney at their business, capital and
immigrants will be convinced of the fertili
ty of our soil and the advantages of our cli
mate, and will come very quickly. This, we
claim, can be accomplished by the education
of the farmers, and this, we think, can be
secured by the reorganization of the bureau
on the plan indicated in the bill in question.
"The plan of organization, too, is not new.
The benefits of farmers institutes to an agri
cultural community are too well established
to be doubted now. The first requisite to
the improvement of agriculture is to organ
ize the farmers. In the New England States
the farmers' county clubs elect the board of
directors of the agricultural bureau, and
these directors elect the secretary, who is
virtually the commissioner of agriculture.
There can be no conflict of opinion, no clash
of authority here. I need not go over the
questions that have arisen in our depart
ment of agriculture under the present sys
tem. The Legislature elects the commission
er, and it also elects the members of the
board. Suppose there is, as there has been,
a difference of opinion on very material
points between the board and the commis
sioner, how can it be settled ?,'
Dr. Tindal spoke at length on this point,
giving many reasons for the reorganization
of the department.
The Reporter, however, mindful of time
and space asked for an expression of his
news with reference to the t vo experiment
.1 stations authorized by an Act of the last
"These farms or stations," said Dr. Tindal,
"to be of any benefit to the agriculteral in
terest of the State, should be organized and
directed by a man of both scientific knowl
edge and practical experience, for the reason
that, in conducting experiments, many ex
traneous matters creep in and have to be
eliminated in order to get at the true result
of the experiment. Men who have under
taken experiments of this character will un
derstand how easily one may be misled."
'Have you any suggestions as to the prop
er person to undertake the work ?"
"In my opinion, Dr. McBryde, cf the
State Univ-ersity, is the one man in the
State who can accomplish what is desired.
Dr. McBryde is a practical farmer and a sci
entist. He has both knowledge and prac
tice. But he can't undertake the work un
less he is relieved from class duty in the Col
lege. I think he should be relieved of this
duty, and then he could do the executive
work of the College, and perhaps establish
these stations. In my judgment no College
president should be called upon to do class
work urvl~s the institution is too poor to
furnish a suffcient number of teachers. The
bill, as it was amended in the Senate, is not
exactly what was sought to be a.tained, but
these stations can be of material benerit to
the farmers of the State. I attach, however,
great importance to the manner in which
these farmu shall be organized, for unless
they are begun and conducted in the way I
eindicated,.it is doubtful if they will ac
complish any desirable results."
"What do you think ab)out the Citadel?*
"As you know. I have never said a word
against the Citadel. On the contrary, it, as
well as the State 'University, has received
my warmest support. I think that you will
I find that the conservative farmers of South
Carolina are not opposed but strongly in fa
vor of education. In my judgment I think
the course of instruction in the Citadel
should be enlarged in the direction of the
science of applied mechanics, but this, I pre
sume, will be done when the board of visit
ors see the opportunity of doing it. When
the State-House shall be finished and the
State Agricultural College built and put in
operation, the system of higher education in
the State will be complete.
Dr. Tindal said a good deal more on the
subject of education-agricultural, literary,
and scientific-showing his earnestness in
the cause, an earnestness which was abun
dantly proved by his course in the House of

WASENGToN, Jan. 23, 1887.
Contrary to all prediction and to some
well laid plans, Congress ignored the Tariff
puzzle for a whole week, and turned: its at
tention and its energies upon the Mormon
question, inter-state Commerce, Appropri
ations for the Militia, and upon the bill for
establishing an Executive Department of
Agriculture with a seat in the Cabinet for its
chief. Each question was pushed to a vote,
and the result will be, if all this legislation
effects what was intended, that "the twin
relic of barbarism" will be rooted out of
Utah; the people will be relieved of griev
ous oppression and extortion from the rail
roads; the citizen soldiery of the country
will be provided with arms, and other equip
ments, and the farmers will have an impos
ing figure-head at Washington to look after
their special interests.
The President gave the first State recep
tion of 1887 to the Diplomatic Corps, it be
ing a long established custom here to pay
the first honors of the season to the Repre
sentatives of foreign nations. The official
world of Washington is always formerly in
vited to these levees, and persons in private
life whose presence is desired are invited in
formally by the host or hostess. Although
the rain rained down and the wind blew f&i
riously. the White House was filed with a
brilliant throng on this occosion, and out
side the scene was one in which rolling car
riages, lines of coaches, coupes, cabs of all
descriptions, banging doors, and shouting
drivers played a conspicuc-s part.
The venerable Mr. Co ran, Washing
ton's philanthropist, cam, to the reception
early and remained late, seated on a sofa in
the Blue Parlor, where he received much at
tention from the President's guests. Gen
eral Sheridan, in full uniform, with five
glittering badges on his breast, and his
white belt worn diagonally over his shoul
ders, came with his wife on his arm, and
General Fitz John Porter, who had not been
to a White House reception probably for
twenty years, was there. The President
seems to have recovered his health entirely,
and after the fatigueing task of three hours
of hand-shaking went to work next morning
with more vim than usual.
Many people think the President will call
for an extra session of the Fiftieth Congress.
The Tariff question is in such a tangle that
the revenue reformers have little hope of
doing anything this session. Unless Mr.
andall does make a move, the controversy
will probably exhaust in talk until the end
of this session, with the prospect of an ex
tra session being called.
Hon. Frank Hurd, of Ohio, who lost his
seatin Congress through too much eloquence
in behalf of Tariff reform, is here now, and
as eager as ever for tariff legislation. He is
very anxious for an extra session, so that
the tariff fight may be brought on as soon as
possible. He asserts that public interest in
the subject is growing stronger. A few
years ago when he talked tariff no one would
listen. "Not one man in a hundred cared
then one rap about the Tariff. Now he says
he gets letters every day asking him to de
liver lectures on the subject. He thinks the
administration will hardly dare to let the
Treasury surplus go on piling up until next
year. "Tariff reform has got to come," said
:Jr. Hurd, "and the sooner the question is
met the better. Let us have an extra ses

It is not every Congressman who is rich
enough to take the stand against his ofiice

time in Washington looking after positions
for the faithful. He was willing to pay for
the services of a man whose duty it shoul I

he added, but he was not willing to give it
personal attention, as there were other mat

he now employs a man here to attend to the
business of the spoilsmen, on a distinct un

be expected to do and will not."

There are several reasons for the
difference. One is that Charleston
has more than one man who has made
a creditable appearonce before audi
ences abroad, her average of brains is
high and evidence of posession of a
reasonable share of them is not hailed
with the astonished delight evolved
from other cities by such exhibitions.
Another reason is that Captain Dlaw

agreed with and known by everybody.

WASLisGTOs, D. C., January 17, 1887.
There are ten books in the secret archives
of the United States Patent Office for which
patent attorneys in Washington would be
willing to give'$100,000. They are the books
containing the names and addresses of in
ventors whose cases have been rejected dur
ing the past ten years. There has been an
average of 28,000 cases filed in the Patent
Office every year for theklast ten years and
a yearly average of 18,000 patents granted.
Last year there were 35,000 applications
filed and 24,000 ]patents issued. the largest
number in any one year. On this showing
something like 60 per cent, of the applica
tions have been patented. So there have
been during the last ten years about 100,000
rejected cases. These in part include cases
defeated in interferences and applications
allowed, but on which final fees have not
Now good attorneys get fully 90 per cent.
of their cases allowed and patented; hence
there must be some reason for only 60 per
cent. of the applications being allowed. The
reason is this; fully 8,000 inventors every
yearmake out their own cases and try to get
them through the Patent Office. Not know
ing the routine they almost invariably get
involved in the meshes of red tape and the
intric.tcies of Patent Office procedure. The
difficulty may be slight, a mere informality,
a defective drawing. an improperly worded
application. an indefinite specification, or a
slight interference requiring a few amend
ments which a skillful patent attorney could
make in half an hour. Bnt to the inventor
these prove an insurmountable obstacle; his
application is rejected and he gives up in
disgust or despair.
Applications for patents in the United
States patent Office go first to the 28 princi
ple examiners, according to the subject mat
ter. If they are rejected, two years are al
lowed in which to amend them or take other
necessary action. If no action shall have
been taken at the end of two years, such
cases are treated as abandoned, anid are sent
to the division where they are entered in
the books which the Patent Atto-neys so
much covet. Fully 50,000 ef the rejected
cases of the last ten years fall under these
conditions. At a low e-timate 25,000 of
these rejected cases put in the hands of a
competent attorney, could be patented. A
patent attorney's fees on such conditional
case.i would be about $25 per case-a gross
sum Qf $625,000. Count ont disgusted in
venters and those not able to pay, still an
enormous number would get out patents if
they knew how. But the trouble is just
here-no one outside the Patent Office is al
lowed access to those little books. And
without them they cannot learn the natue
and address of the inventors. Then again
there are some 15,000 cases now lying in the
Examiner's rooms awaiting the two year's
limit. These are still more valuable, for if
they are taken up before the time-limit ex
pires, the initial fees do not lapse, while in
the other cases they would have to be re
The practice in the United States Patent
Office was not always thus. During Grant's
first term, for a period of about a year, at
torneys were a:lowe access to all letter books,
and previous to that had been allowed ac
cess to the files of abandoned cases, but there
was a constant scramble and not infrequent
ly downright fights over them, and about
1876 the Patent Office made them secret.
