Below we publish a table of the to
tal value of personal and real proper
ty in Clarendon county, for the past
thirteen years. It is interesting and
PERSONAL REAL TOTAL
PROP. ESTATE. PROP. POLLS.
1876-77 $1,815,104 2,373
1879-80 1,252 687 2,427
1885-86 1,491,265 2,588
1886-87 $576.175 $1,114,669 1,690.844 3,102
1887-88 615,277 1,134.145 1,749.422 2,670
1888-89 648.340 1,155,795 1,804,135 3,057
In the above table it will be no
ticed that the polls in the year 18S7
88 fell off 432. This was caused by
reducing the age of paying polls from
60 to 50 years.
By taking off Motts township and
adding it to Florence county we lost
$69,460 in property and 113 polls.
The above table shows that the val
uation of property in Clarendon coun
ty in 1876-77, when the county was
wrested from Radical rule, was $10,969
more than it is now, a startling as
sertion, but true if figures are
It shows that in just three years of
Democratic rule the property of the
county had depreciated $562,417 in
value, and that the polls had increas
ed only 54.
Then it shows during the follow
ing ten years a slow steady appre
ciating value of property, until, as we
stated above, we have got our prop
erty back to nearly its value in the
"dark days of Radical misrule."
It shows that Clarendon county is
one of the poorest and least progress
ive counties in the State,-in thirteen
years' time the property depreciating
The above table also includes the
railroad property, the present year it
being $193,800. Motts township was
valued at $69,460. Taking away
Motts and adding the railroad prop
erty then would make an actual in
crease of $124,340 from this source;
or in other words this $124,340 will
have to be added to the $10,961, mak
ing a total deficit, or depreciation of
property in, Clarendon county fur
thirteen years of Democratic rule, of
$135,301. This means that during
the past thirteen years the property of
Clarendon has depreciated in value,
onitting the railroads, nearly 9 per
cent. Is there a sane man in the
county who believe that this is the
tfrueondition of afairs?
We have recently published several
tables of county statistics, and those
who have read them carefully are
pretty well posted on county affairs.
It is said that figures never lie; may
be so, but those figures above handle
the truth in an exceedingly careless
and reckless manner. They don't
even tell a half truth. The very idea
of publishing to the world that Clar
endon county is worth in all and ev
ery kind of property only $i,804,135
is ridiculously absurd and pr-eposter
ously untrue. The property of Clar
endon is worth at least, at a small val
uation, $5,000,000. This is no reck
less assertion, as we wvill prove
Our county, as it stands, is publish
ed to the world as the fifth poorest
county in the State, when in fact we
-should rank at least among the aver
age counties of the State. There must
be acause. What is it ?
In the first. place we think the
County Board of Equalization lar-gely
They say that the best arable land
in Clarendon county is worth only
$3.50 an acre, and that the poorest is
worth $3.00 an acre; they say that un
cultivated land, no matter how well
timbered, or in what favorable loca
tion, is worth for the best only $1.25
an acre, and for the poorest $1.00 an
acre. They say that our swamp lands,
no matter how well timbered or how'
valuable, are worth only twenty cents
-There are farming lands in this
county that could not be bought for
$50 an acre, and large numbers of
Sfarms that could not be bought for $25
an acre. We doubt much if theie is!
a farm in the county that could be pur
chased at $3 an acre for the arable
land. Very little land in this county
can be rented for less than $2 an acre
a year, though some of it is rented as
low as $1 an acre, and much of this
land valued by the Equalization
Board at $3 or $3.50 an acre, rents!
for from $3 to $4 an acre a year.
But another view of it. This fixed
value of land is a gross injustice to
the poor tax payer. There are some
lands that are not worth more than
one-tenth what other lands are worth.
Yet all must be assessed alike. If aj
man buys a tract of land at $25 or $40'
an acre, and he knows it is worth ev
ery dollar of it, yet the Equalization
Board will say to him, "That's all
right; we will relieve you of just tax
stion to the value of 60 or 80 per:
Sof your property." Such is a
injustice to those tax~ payers
who pay on the value of their prop-:
erty. Thus, it is evident, two wrongs
are done, and no right comes of it.
It is not so bad, in value, in per-a
sonal property, but in principle the
evil is the same. There is the same
discrimination. The Board says a
horse, and a cow, and a hog are worth
somuch, and so much is all it can be~
valued at. We have been reliably
told of instances where a man under
oath returned his property at what, he
conceived to be its just value, and
the board would largely cut down its
value. However, the injustice done
to the true value of property is not
so great in personal property as in
The ~Board of Equalization have,!
according to business principles, an
erroneous conception of equalization.
Common justice demands that it
-should be equalized according to its
true value. The man who ownsa
farm of 500 acres worth $25 an acre,
should pay taxes on $12,500; and an
other :aan who owns a farm of 500
acres worth $5 an acre, should pay
taxes on $2,500. That is equalization
according to business principles.
The greatest good at present accom
plished by the Equalization Board is
to draw their per diem and mileage.
One other thing. Town property
is not subjected to this equalization (?)
process. Town property is returned
ualized (?) vafues,
y pays about three or
mes as much tax as country
Is it ever ight to do evil that good
may come of it? Some people think
so. If we increase the valuation of'
our property, we shall have to pay
more State tax and more constitution
al two mill school tax; so to avoid
paying our just part of these taxes
we will falsely represent our wealth
to the world.
We believe in doing right for the
right's sake. If the property of Clar
endon county is worth $5,000,000, we
believe in saying so to the world.
We have written the above in all
kindness. We have thought on this
subject a long time, and we candidly
think there are evils that ought to be
.corrected. Possibly we are ourself in
error; if so we shall be truly glad to
have any one show us wherein the ac
tion of our county board in thus un
der-estimating the value of property
is right, just, and correct.
A BRIGtHT FUTURE.
Manning has her bank organized,
and will be ready for business in two
months. Summerton was to have
met yesterday to organize a cotton
seed oil mill. Manning is feeling
around for a canning factory, a cotton
seed oil mill, and a steam laundry,
each of which we need, and very
probably will have in the course of a
few months. We have now a large
lumber establishment in the town and
several others in the county, fitted up
with the latest and best improve
ments. We have a great many other
mills and industries in the town and
county. We need co-operation, the
electric elbow touch. Our business
men and capitalists and those with
only a few dollars to spend must all
unite, must act together, must cease
to be croakers, must lend a helping
hand to every worthy enterprise, must
not think that every other man is a
fiend -incarnate, but with a strong
heart, and working on solid and safe
business principles, must all act to
gether with one long, strong pull, and
Clarendon county will rapidly ascend
the hill. of progress.
Why stand we here idle ? Why
hide our talent? Why live selfishly.
shut up in our "shells, of little good to
ourselves and of less to the commu
nity in which we live? Let every one
open up his heart. Let friendship
and love and charity and confidence
and benevolence and square dealing
and good will towards all men be the
actuating motives of our lives. Let
every one determine to make a suc
cess of life, or at least an earnest ef
fort in that direction.
We believe there is a bright future
ahead of us. The live business men'
that have come among us have infus
ed a new spirit in our people. The
three new railroads in the western
part of the county have roused the"
people; the large and magnificent saw
mills along the line of the Central
Railroad, and the fastest passenger
trains in the South,-all these things
are arousing our people, and they
have determined to be moi e progres
sive, and to do more for the upbuild
ing of the county. Pinewood, which
but a few months ago was a small
cross roads store, is growing into a*
town, with a lag ma iieturing in-I

supervision their surplus land, and
ingke everything on the farm that they
can. Let every man and every class
of men work together for his own
good and that of his neighbor-and
a glorious future is undoubtedly ahead
of us .
Then when everybody, farmer and
mechanic and merchant and capital
ist, all work together for the general
welfare of the county,-then may we
expect to see Clarendon, if not takhag!
the foremost stand in the sisterhood
of counties, at least keeping equal
pace in the race of progress.

of South Carolina, died suddenly at

afternoon, just after having partaken

feeling unwell after eating dinner last
Friday, and in a few minutes, before

Cotton Cover for Cotton.
Some of the advantages of not us
ing jute bagging for baling cotton are
stated as follows by a correspondent
writing from Boykin's, S. C., to the
Charleston News and Courier:
I notice that Messrs. F. W. Wage
ner & Co. advise the cotton planters
to use jute bagging for covering their.
cotton, and go on to show the differ
ence in the cost, etc., but it will be
noticed that they do not mention any
thing about the increased demand
that would be created for our inferior
grade of cotton, which wouild tend to
enhance the value of the whole crop.
As the world requires about an aver
age crop, it is fair to presume that if,
we can create a new demand the price
would be bettered, and the difference
in the cost of the two kinds of bag
ging would be more than counter
It is estimated that it will require
about 125,000 bales to cover the pres-I
ent crop, which would amount in'
round numbers to about $4,000,000
ll of which would be kept at home
and give employment to many worthy
people. And how are we to know
that the prices of jute bagging will
not be raised from time to time; for,
unless we do something, the "Jute
'rust" may dictate terms and prices
bereater as they have done hereto
ore. No, sir, it is now or never. If
we fail now it will be difficult to do
mything in this matter in the future.
We now have the sympathies of most
people. We are promised $1 per bale
more by our Southern factories for alfl
:he cotton that they purchase that is~
:overed with cotton, and the rate of
insurance will be less, and I do not
:hink it unreasonable to expect a re
:luction in the "tare," (i. e.,) due al
owance for the difference in the
weights of the two coverings. Besides
the cotton covering will keep the cot
ton cleaner, and can be used for other
purposes after having been used for
oving bales of cotton.
I earnestly hope that my brother far
mers will continue- in this good work
so fairly begun, and which promises
so much for their benefit, and thus
show that we can pull together when
mny party, parties, or "trusts" com
bine against us.

How rr wH v BE DONE.
Five prominent gentlemen from different
sections of the county will be requested to
give away the prize., in the following man
These gentlemen '*l place in one box a
number of tickets equal to the number of
paid up subscribers, alt-of which tickets
will be blank except the e'ght prize tickets.
They will then place in another similar box
an equal number of tickets, containing the
names of the paid up subscribers, one name
on each ticket. After the tickets have been
carefully ' aced in the boxes,
mmittee is satisfied
djust. Then the1
o ittle boys about
and one will draw from the box containing
the names of the paid up subscribers and
the other from the box containing the tick
ets. The committee will at every drawing
(one from each box) inspect the tickets that
have been drawn and announce the result.
For instance, suppose the little boys have
each drawn a ticket from their respective
boxes. 'Ihe name drawn by one little boy
is Always Loseum, and the ticket drawn by
the other is a blank. That means Mr. A.'
Loseum has failed to secure a prize. The
little boys draw again. The name is Lucky
Fellow, and the prize ticket has sewing ma-'
chine on it. That means Mr. L. Fellow
has secured the sewing machine for his
prize. The drawing will thus continue till1
all the prizes have been given away.
This plan seems to us as fair as possible,
and to have the least objections. Our sub
scribers may rest satisfied that everything
will be done in fairness.
THE HONOR LI1ST.
We shall ublish between now and the
4th of July the names of all the paid up
subscribers who will be entitled to a ticket
in the drawing. We are working our sub
scription list to a cash basis. On the fifth!
day of July we shall strike off our subscrip
tion list the names of all subscribers who
are as much as one year in arrears.
We trust our friends will appreciate this
enterprise on our part, and promptly pay
up all their back dues and a year's subscrip
tion in advance. We shall greatly appreci
ate all such. We have just bought a large
cylinder press, and it must be paid for. If
our subscribers will pay up, we can pay for
it; if they do not, we shall have to borrow
sever al hundred dollars. Our intention is,
to give the people of Clarendon a good read
