THE MANNING TIMES.
WEDNESDAY, AU(UST 21, 18817
B. S. DINKINS, Editor
A COTTON BUYER NEEDED.
With the opening of the cotton sea
son our merchants should dir(et their
attention, especially, towards induciu
a cotton buyer or buyers to make their
headquarters in Manning. The want
of this factor in our trade has been
keenly felt for a number e:rs.
Cotton in large quantities iS yearly
carried from this county to other zar
kets, on account of the larger ppor
tunities afforded by the cotton' buVer
to dispose of it, for cash, at its market
able value. We have even noticed!,
with no little mortitieation, cotton tak
en from the suburbs tf Manning. a
distance of twenty miles to Ie sohl.
There is no doubt that a lack of con
idence in . this market exists among
the people. We willing'y believe
there is no foundat:on for i, but true'
or untrue, the feeling prevails among
a great many to the detriment of the
town. It is the duty of our merchants
to put this market on an equal footig'
with any other place of like facilties.
To do this, the most avamiabe means
at their command is to make te place
attractive for a cotton buye. It is
calculated to restore any lack of con
fidence that may -revail, and benefi
the merchant by keepig the money
of the cotton seller and his trade here
Last year a gentleman came here
for the purpose of buying cotton but .
only remained a few days. It has
-reached us that be was induced to re
turn to his home, Sumter, as a buyer
of cotton in Mann ug would keep a
great deal of this comimodJity, mrkke
ed in Sumter, away from the. We
do not know that this is so, but the
circumstances are sufficienti suspi 1
cious to arouse our mnrcbants to an:
effort to protect their interc~tsaand the
interests of their town.
Cotton buying in small villags or
towns has quite recently become an
important vocation, and a popular!
one too with the cotton seller. We
do-not know a nore inviting field for
a gentlenan of this avocation than
Manning. Cotton is the crop of tLis
conts, and with the location of Man
ning; the competition of two buyers:
would bring all the cotton here with
in a radius of 15 miles, and even furth1
er on the eastern and south-western
side. A merchant remarking on this
subject the other day, said he believed -
25,000 bales would be sold here with
a well advertised buyer. For the good
of all we want to see two cotton buy
ers operating here this fall.
The curse of the credit system to
the farmer, was the subject of a l
dress delivered by a distinguished
*. 1'ianian, Col. Diamond, before
the recrut meeting of farmers in '-t
* lanta. There is much of what he said1
*so applicable~ to our people rigvht here
at home, that we publish a parUt His
remarks should be pohndered we, m
legislative assistance might be called
upon to afford some remedy. Her e
is 'wha~t he said about the cu rse of
In Southern agriculture, credit hia' been
themost insidious agent that coul haveh bea
-.well devised. The fact that each loca?lha
'but one dominant crop leads to excessive t
'risk. Opportunities to get creiit leads u~
to go in debt, when we do not need what wet
buy, and the very marrow of ou hv's s
sucked ont, and finally we die, or the sn-riff
liquidates our estate and the end co ues.
The worse result of credit to the farmer (oC
curs here in the South. For instance : The I
Southern planter has a piaxtationich he at
has not money to cultivate; he goes to a fe
er and pledges to him his erop; a'h crp .at
sa 'p ot -planted, and prcenres funds, x:h
"wbsch. to proceed with his culture. W ha I
:sort of man is this factor that acc-A~epsrety c
that does not exist, that is subjet to viisi 0.
inudes and changes of weather"
In: conclusion Colo::el Diamond said:
--"May we rnot be too willing to keep our~
he~idin the noose of the money king, hop
*ing always for uniform good fortune, anid
-that our occasional good fortune will save

we should consider it for those who follow I
us, as well as for ourselves. This cre i i
made easy leads leads us into too large ul-C

Prohibition met wit h a signal defeat
in the late elections in Anderson and
Laurens counties. However, the re
suit does not show really the proh ibi
Lion strength in the two cotmics. It
was more a defeat of what is k;nown as;
the Murray bill, which prov ided for
the election, than an anti-proh~ibii
victory. Many good citize-ns, c'PPos
ed to liquor saling, voted against the
bill, for the reason thal; they deme
the prohibitory laws already, an-jly'
stringent and sufficient, and tnat any 5
further action onI the p)art of the gov"
ernent would be oppression. They
adopted the conservative plan of let-.
ting well enough alone. Legisl-tion:
can never force a naasure on the" peo
pie without first educating th'e public
mnd to a standard with the priuciples
of the desir-ed law. Prohibitioni~sts
have plenty of laws and to spare. Te.
would work to greater adv--nt-ge by~ v
preaching aL sentiment in favor of pro
hibition, than by 12dmin the situ-te
