WEDIESOAY, JULY 3,1889.
UNJUST VALUATION OF OUR LAND.
To the world it is published that
the farming lands of Clarendon coun
ty, those lands that are actually in a
state of cultivation, are worth for the
best only $3.50 an acre, and that
there is onlyfifty cents difference in
the value of any kind of arable lands.
It is true we have in Clarendon a few
acres of arable land that possibly
might be purchased at $3 or $3.50 an
acre. But we doubt exceedingly if
as much as ten acres in one parcel or
field of land could be purchased at
those figures. The very lowest we
- have ever heard of land renting in
this county is one dollar an acre, and
there are few acres that rent for less
than $1.50 an acre. $2 is about
the average rent paid for an acre, but
there are some lands in this county
now actually rented at five dollars an
acre; but the Board of Equalization
says of these same lands, "Though
each acre brings an annual revenue of
five dollars, yet we declare in our
official capacity that it is worth only
three and a half dollars an acre."
Gentlemen of the Board of Equali
zation, have you ever thought
of the appearance of the above
valuation, that land is actually
worth $1.50 an acre less than it rents
for? It is unjust, unbusiness like, to
ases all the lands in this county at,
or so nearly at, the same figures.
Every tract of land ought to have its
own assessed value, and that value
ought to be at the very least four
times its annual rental value. 25 per
cent is a very great interest on real
estate investment. To assess land at
five or six times its rental value would
be nearer the actual valuation.
(arendon ebunty has some poor
land, no doubt of that, but we have
also large farms of as fine and valua
ble land as can be found any where
in the State; yet this land is officially
published to the world as being
worth only $3.50 an acre for the-very
best. Is there then any wonder that
the charge is brought against our peo
that we are so non-progressive?
we, with land at $3.50 an acre
for the very best, presume to offer in
ducements to capitalists to come
among us? We are at present ranked
the fifth poorest county in the State,
when if our property was put at its
proper valuation, we would be ranked
stjgast among the average counties of
But, how about other counties ?
Well, we presume a similar line of
policy is adopted in other counties,
too; but must I, because my neigh
bors revel in the iniquities of sin,
likewise bow down and serve the
THE NcDOW T RIA L
The court of general sessions, at
Charleston, was occupied all of last
week in the trial of Dr. T. B. McDow,
for the killing of Capt. F. W. Dawson
on the 12th of March last.
A great, deal of testimony was in
troduced, and the examination of the
seesana wa..anhastive; 4be -arge.
ments of the solicitor and counsel rep
resenting the State, as well as those of
the consellors for the accused, were
models of legal research and profes
siona1 skill. The charge of the pre
siding judge was, to say the least, fair
to the accused in every respect. On
last Saturday afternoon, the jury
unanimously agreed upon and render
ed a yerdiet of. not guilty.
In coming to the conclusion that
McDow was guilty of no crime what
ever, the jury, in the discharge of the
high duty devolved upon them, must
hare ignored several particulars of the
awful tragedy which was enacted in
the little office on Rutledge Street, on
thataftenoon in March. Notwith
standing Mcflow's attempt, by getting
rid of the body of his victim, to -de
itroy the'evidence which would, at
once, unerringly, point to him as the
slayer of Capt. Dawson, and notwith
standing the substantial.discrepancies
..bet~eeni McDow's first statement to
reporters and others of material facts
concerning the homicide, and his
testimony on the same points at the
trial, the jury appear as having as-i
amed that the entire statement of
McDow, from first to last, was true to
the letter, and that his actions on the
ocnasion of the killing, and his earli
eststinezment of the fact, were to be
blown aside as so much chaf.
The jury appears to have attached
-no importance to the coolness and de
liberation of McDow, 'evidenced in a
-dozen different acts, whereby he at-1
tempted the task of covering up his
The attempted burial was, evident
ly, only a temporary arrangement for
the hidig, of the body until it could
be entirely destroyed, and the traces
of the crime forever obliterated. It'
has been shown in several important
-crimuinal trials in this country, by the
tessimony of experts, that, if proper
agencies are used, a human body may
be destroyed in afew hours. McDowi
was a physician.
Dr. McDow enjoys the light of
heaven, uninterrupted by the iron
bars of his recent prison, and, to-day,
walksthe streets of Charleston a free
mnan; but a large number of the
thoughtful and order-loving people of
the State, and we may say 'of the~
United States, are not prepared to
accept the verdict of acquittal as con
elusive of the innocence of Capt.
Dawson's slayer, but they think, and
,will continue to think, that in this in
stance justice has not been done.
.Though the pitiful condition of
McDow, while being tried for his life,
was calculated to excite some commis
eration, and appealed for a dispassion
ate consideration of his case, yet, the1

that it is time some provision was in
serted in the law regulating the draw
ing and empanelling of juries in this
State, which would, occasionally, in
sure the drawing of a jury whose
sense of duty, in homicide cases, will,
not lead to the inevitable conclusion
that the slayer is always in the right,
and the slain in the wrong.

The meeting on last Tuesday to
organize a cotton seed oil mill at this
place met in the academy. Mr. J. D.
Rutledge was called to the.chair, and
Dr. B. M. Badger was requested to
act as secretary. It was agreed to
have the capital $20,000 and the shares
$25 each. A committee was appointed
to solicit subscriptions, consisting of
Messrs. Thomas Wilson, S. Rt Cole,
R. H. Belser, R. R. Briggs, F. A. Tin
dal, B. M. Badger, and J. D. Rut
ledge. A subscription was taken up
with those present, and quite a large
amount of the stock was taken. We
feel confident that the proposed enter
prise will be a success, and I know of
no section in the State where a mill
of this kind could be more success
fully run than here.
There will be a barbecue and bas
ket picnic given here next Saturday,
the 6th, just to celebrate the comple
tion of the Wilson & Summerton R.
R. to this place, and to complete the
organization of the cotton seed oil
mill. The public are cordially invited
to attend, the ladies especially. We
expect quite a large crowd and pleas

from Charleston, Sumter, and Clar

addresses on the occasion. The com

BENEDICTION by Rev. Mr. Oates.
.At the anniversary of the Carlisle
Literary Society, Mr. A. Plumer Bur
gess very gracefully made, in his his
tory of the society, some appreciative
remarks concerning Mr. J. C. Lanhamn,
the founder of the society. After de
picting in a graphic manner the firstj
days of the society, he said:
"To Mr. Lanham we are indebted
for this generous and masterly work.
[Constitution and By Laws.] May
we never forget him, and as our 'labor
bears fruit,' may it all redound to his
honor. Upon his head may the chaplet'
of honor rest. Alter four preliminary
meetings Mr. Lanhamn thought us ca-'
pable of self-government, and took
leave of us, kindly offering us his
hep at any time, to which help we
have never in vain appealed."
These remarks, ccming as they did,
from Mr. Burgess's heart, were re
echoed in several rounds of hearty
applause from the large and attentive
audience. Indeed, it seemed at one
time as if the telling speech would
have to be interrupted in order to
give place to "three cheers and a tiger"
for Mr. Lanham.

thing transpiring, -hiinorous, laughable,
and witty. Our country town is not a whit
behind other places. All we lack is railroad
fclities. The morals of the community
are about as good as elsewhere, free from
drunkenness, gambling, and other vices
which so often corrupt society. Everybody
belongs to the church, looking heavenward.
It would puzzle the closest and most minute
observer to separate the worldling from the
We often surmise how every community
delights to honor its own. The Panola sec
tion is a peculiar people, zealous of good
some little towns, which boast of "select
society." Our daily associates are bread
and-meat men, hungering and thirsting af
ter the meat that endureth to this life. I
often wonder if a fool killer was to come
where he would hit the first lick; or if judg
ment is to commence at the hoase of God
where will the sinner and ungodly appear.
This whole panoply divine is a mockery at
grace, and a substitute for the development
of better times, that is, men hide their faults
behind their religion.
An evil of this day is fault-finding and
back-biting. Such is the like to be found
in almost any community, a tirade of abuse
because one don't like another. I suppose
every community has been infested to some
extent with these troublesome myths, bug
bears, to do an injury wherein circumstances
require. It any of your readers think the
bow has been drawn at a venture, why just

Cotton is plentiful, but little corn. Crops
were never more promising. The dry
weather in May enabled the farmers to get
their heads above the level. Gen. Green was
vanquished, and his whole army captured;
therefore the spoils belong to the victors.
Since the rains everybody is blest with a
smile on his face.
One thing we lack is energy as corn plant
ers. Would that there were more Lands and
Hudginses distributed throughout old Clar
endon. I had the pleasure last year to tes
tify as an eye witness to both farms of these
two gentlemen. I found no explosion of
gas in their conversation, for the corn shov
ed for itself. We have as good planters here
as are to be found anywhere else, but they
make cotton a specialty. Some say it is
much easier to raise cotton and buy corn.
I have seen but few crops for the last two
months, therefore can only generalize; but

of his sugar dish, and throw in the old gob

I am a confirmed Ariel convert. 1 recently
saw a specimen of barbarism in an old col
ored man, revolting in its nature. This man
is an officer in his church. He had his
daughter tied with a rope, and led by a
younger sister, while he followed with a
double barrel shot gun. The young lady
was fair and beautiful, and about twenty
years old. I am told this father is very cruel
to his children.

As a rule, a person who has a good appe
