WEDNESDAY, Septeber 5,1888.
The county agricultural meeting
was called to order last Saturday by
Maj. L. H. DesChamps, the president,
at 12 o'clock. Mr. Harvey Mitchum
was elected secretary pro tem.
The three subjects for discussion

with mostgratifying results. Messrs.

quest come within reach. He brought
as a matter of fact, that the Mississip
pi college had graduated 28 young
men in seven years, with the follow
ing results: 26 of them had turned
out lawyers; one a tombstone peddler;
one a preacher.
This fearful array brought Mr. J.
E. Tindal to the floor, in reply, who
made a telling speech in behalf of the
cause. He evidently has the whole
subject at his fingers' end and never at
a loss, seemingly, to find in his armo
ry a weapon of defence. He took the
high ground that although all of them
should go to the different professions,
they would in the end be driven
back to the farms.
We say amen to the efforts of the
farmers, and bid them God-speed on
their way. Organization is what they
need. The sharp attrition of debate
and controversy on these topics will
have the effect of elevating them to a
more intelligent understanding of
this, the most ancient and honorable
of al vocations. There is too much
good sense, patriotism, and conser
vatism in the ranks, to permit the
growth of anything detrimental to the
cause of a patriot and a lover of his
country. They have rights to be
protected; and having the power,
should throw around them all the
safe guards requisite for their pre
The Pawley Island Delegates.
The delegates elected to represent
Clarendon at the Judicial Convention
held at Pawley's Island last week re
turned home last Saturday night, af
ter a hard battle in behalf of our
county nominee, Mr. John S. Wilson.
The balloting was warm and spirited,
and everything passed off pleasantly,
but ended in a complete dead-lock,
from which it must have been evident
that there was nothing to be expect
ed, for the convention adjourned to
meet again in Kingstree, on the 18th
of Sept. There isno room for doubt
ing the fact that our delegates have
already given their associates from
other counties a sample of the back
bone that will have to be broken, be
fore Mr. Wilson is relegated to the
rear. With Georgetown in solid ar
ray beside them, the opposition may
receive the Pawley Island contest as
only a foretaste of what is to come,
Events "that cast their shadows before."
They are all good and worthy men,
but Clarendon and Georgetown say
Wilson, first and last, and we think a
voice now still and small from some
of the others will ere long join in the
chorus and say Wilson, too, to the
tune of a harmonious nomination.
The News and Courier Last Mon
day issued a twelve page trade re
view of Charleston, and on Tuesday a
trade review of Columbia. Charles
ton last year did a business amount
ing to $76,805,754, an increase of
$10,526,213 over the preceding year.
Columbia's business this year was
$,698,674, more than four times
whatit was sight years ago. The popn
lation of Columbia now is 1Z765.
The News and Courier deserves a well
done for the enterprise exhibited in
these two reviews.
The Charleston Sun is now issuing
a weekly, an eight page paper, for one
