THE FARMERS' FIGHT.
The farmers have now arisen in all
their mighty strength, and success
will assuredly perch high on their
standard. It is not a fight merely
for a few cents, but it is a grand fight
for principle, a fight to overthrow a
soulless corporation that would fatten
on their hard labors. The bagging
trust will be smashed, and with it will
.go down-many other similar oppres
sive - trusts Oe thing at a time
though is best, but with the jute bag
ging trust completely overthrown this
year, next year the sugar trust and
other monopolies will either throw
up the sponge, or else be crushed out.
It is only necessary for the farmers to
act as a unit, and there is no trust or
combination on American or European
soil that can withstand them. As we
said above it is a grand fight, and all
the world is looking on for the result
with a deep and breathless interest.
When a penitentiary guard or a
sherifs constable or a policeman
shoots an escaping prisoner, in nine
ty-nine cases out of a hundred it is
morally (and legally, too, if the laws
were enforced) murder. A coroner's
jury may bring in a verdict of "killed
in the official discharge of his duties,"
but it is murder nevertheless. Any
law officer who shoots an escaping
prisoner, should be tried and convict
ed for the offense. The pistol is used
entirely too freely in South Carolina.
We need a change. A prisoner should
be so secured as to prevent his escap
ing and if an opportunity for escap
ing should present itself to the pris
oCer, the negligent officer of the law
should not try to cover up or remedy
his carelessness by killing his prison
er, whc, in the case of arrests by
constables and policemen, has not
tried and convicted of any
crune. The law any and full
means and methods for seearing-pris
oners who have been arrested, but it
gives no authority to kill, except it be
We have heard the question of
the railroad's liability for the dam
age to Black river causeway free
ly discussed within the last few days,
~aid opinion seems to be divideed on
thbe-subject. We are no lawyer, but as
it is claimed by all Blackstones that
comnmon sense is the mudsill upor
We all know that every man has the
right to use and enjoy his property
Sjust ashe chooses, provided, in doing
so, he does not injure his neighbor
in the use and enjoyment of his prop
*erty. For instance, I have the right
to dam a stream and make a pond on
-my own land; but who would say
had the right to flood my neighbor's
ield or house, by backing water on
him? If that were law I could drown
him ont every time he made me mad.
IUmay be lawful, but not iji accor
1dane with common sense, for me to
dso. It seems then to us the only
-question is, does the water backed up
ogsinst the causeway by the railroad do
the damage ? If it does the railroad
should be made to build more cul
vertb; if it does not the railroad is
not at fault.
Th linei on to win. In
Georgia almost all the cotton is cov
ered with cotton bagging, and the Al
liance people have determined to use
nothing else but cotton bagging. Ben
-Terrell, the national lecturer of the
Alliance, who is now visiting the Cot
ton States, and who is expected in
Manning the 16th of September,
I have visited 105 counties in Georgia,
and I find the farmers unanimous for cotton
begging. I have never seen anything like
it. Georgians are a great people, and the
farmers of Georgia are of the noblest men
on earth. The Alliance has adopted cotton
bagging as a permanent covering for cotton.
I think in this contest Liverpool will be an
unknown quantity. Await developments
and you will see that Liverpool will be glad
.toaccept our cotton just as we please to
wrap it. The Alliance is rapidly growing in
in every section, and its influence is being
felt in the largeat financial markets of the
South Carolina is not so well or
ganized as Georgia, but a very large
part of the cotton will be shipped in
cotton covering. Already cotton has
been shipped in cotton bagging, and
we have as yet heard of no complaint.
Complete and satisfactory arrange
mnents have not yet been made with
the various cotton exchanges, but be
fore the war is over the London and
Liverpool exchanges will be glad
enough to get cotton in any form and
in any covering. Cotton mills are
_coming to the-cotton fields, and if the
~-oopolists cannot afford a fair field
and a free fight, the South will simply
and quietly handle all its cotton. It
can do it, and before it will lose in
this fight it will do it. Carthago de
Up to Aug. 22d, the S. C. Railroad
had shipped 1,811 carloads of water
melons, aggregating more than 3,000,
000 melons. Most of these were
grown in Barnwell county, and about
8,000 acres were used in their cultiva
tion. A big crop.
Bud Renaud has been found guilty
of participation in the Sullivan-Kil"
rain fight and sentenced to pay $500
The last Legislature fixed the time
for holding court in Florence county
the same as in Georgetown county.
As both these counties are in the same
circuit, it is of course impossible to
have court the same week. Conse.
quently the baby county will have to
"bide a wee."
The people of Mt. Pleasant had a
small sized riot last week. The mili
tary companies of Charleston were or
dered out, and the jail guarded till
the disturbance had subsided. It re
sulted from the careless or accidental
shooting of a negro woman by a Ger
man boy who is said to have been in
the habit of playfully using danger
ous weapons. The matter is all quiet
now. Seven of the ringleaders have
been lodged in jail to await trial at
the next term of court in Berkeley
county. An account of the distur
bance will be found on the last page.
Florence county is having a dis
gustingly dirty primary canvass. The
first campaign meeting was held last
Saturday a week ago at Hinson. Af
ter the candidates who had declared
themselves as candidates had spoken,
L. S. Bigham took the stand and
made a speech an hour and a half
long. He made pretty heavy charges
against Clerk of Court Z. T. Kershaw
and Sheriff E. W. Johnson. Kershaw
promptly hurled the lie in Bigham's
teeth. Bigham insisted he was tell
ing the truth, and Kershaw insisted
that he was lying, and so the meeting
ended. If such is kept up the mo
notonousness of the campaign may be
relieved by a little pistol practice.
.Last Tusday afternoon B. Pressley
Barron, Esq., attorney for Mrs. Louisa
Huggins, administratrix of Dr. H. H.
Huggins, late treasurer of Clarendon
county, completed a final settlement
with County Auditor D. J. Bradham.
The settlement was as follows:
State Tax $ 91.83
County Tax 1643.82
Road Commutation Tax 109.41
Public School Tax 534.34
Total Cash paid over $2379.40
$117.50 of uncollected tax execu
tions was left in hands of sheriff for
Immediately after Mr. Barron had
completed his settlement Mr. Jos.
Sprott, Jr., the present county treas
urer, made his settlement with the
Auditor. The settlement sheet shows
the following amounts in hand:
County Tax $1881.04
Road Commutation Tax 227.28
School Tax 1168.06
Total cash on hand $3276.8
Shooting at Convicts.
pers in their comments upon the 'cent
shooting by the Penitentiary guard of a
prisoner who was attempting to escape, haire
treated the matter as if the convict had been
shot upon the individual volition of tho
It appears, however, that by a rule, as old
as the Penitentiary itself, the guards are
compelled to shoot at conviets attempting
to escape. Section 4 of "An Act to provide
for the establishment of a Penitentiary,"
Statutes at Large, 1861-66. page 366-68, pro
vides, among other things, that "it shall be
the duty of his Excellency the Glovernor to
make all such regulations as shall be requi
site for their (the convicts') safekeeping and
subsistence," etc., etc.
Under the authority thus given Governor
James L. Orr established the "rules and reg
ulations for the discipline and government
of the South Carolina Penitentiary," dated
April 15, 1867, and the superintendent of
the Penitentiary is charged with their rigid
Paragraph 11 of the section of these "rules
and regulations" relating to the "duties of
the prisoners" is as follows:
"If any prisoner attempts an escape from
the yard or guard he shall, if possible, be
ordered to halt, and on failing to do so he
must be shot by the guard. The prisoners
are forbidden to go near the fence, and any
violation of this rule will be considered an
attempt to escape."
The whole section relating to the "duties
of the prisoners" is read and carefully ex
plained to every prisoner who is received at
the Penitentiary, and any of them who at
tempt to escape do so with a full knowledge
of the consequences.
More than this: Each guard upon enter.
ing upon service at the Penitentiary is made
to give a pledge that he will observe these
rules and regulations, and a copy of them
is furnished to him to be memorized. It
thus appears that both prisoners and
guards know what must be the result of
attempts on the part of convicts to escape,
and that the regulations have the force and
authority of law.
It does seem hard that a man should, uin
der certain conditions, forfeit his life by an
attempt to escape, and those desirous of
effecting a reform in this matter can, no
doubt, present a strong case~to the Legisla
ture when it assembles. .But until some
legal change is made prisoners who make
"breaks for liberty" will continue to be
Eeunion of the Sprott Guard.
The Sprott Guard as usual met at
Juneville last Friday. About forty of
the old veterans were there. Quite
a number of ladies, the wives, daugh
ters, and sisters of the survivors, were
out and managed the dinner, which
was agood one. Col. Benbow was quite
unwell and unable to preside, so Maj.
Lesesne, the vice president, presided.
Several resolutions were passed. When
Col. Benbow came on the ground there
went up a shout, thus expressing their
love for their old commander. After
dneCat. Bradham attempted to
diner apeh but failed. His sub
ject was too near the hearts of the
old veterans, and they all had a good
time in tears, feeling nearer and dear
er to each other than ever before- A
fine tribute was paid to Capt. Harvin,
and, as Capt. Bradham remarked in
the closing of his speech, a man with
a "pure heart and clean hands" has
left us. They meet again Aug. 23,
THME ALLIANCE ARGUMENT.
The Farmers Are Engaged in a Righteous
Cause, with a Bright Prospect of
The Farmers' Alliance argument against
the use of jute, from one point of view, is
not sound; from another it is soud to the
bottom. As a mere matter of money at
present prices, a loss of fifty-one cents to
the bale of cotton is admitted on the face of
The offset of the home consumption of a
hundred and fifty thousand bales of raw
cotton which is put up against the four mil
lion dollars greater cost of cotton cloth bag
ging as compared with jute bagging, from
one point of view is specious.
BOTH SIDES OF THE QUESTION.
Admitting that taking this one hundred
and fifty thousand bales out of the world's
present consumption will raise the price of
cotton by a quarter of a cent, the same
thing could be done by growing that much
less cotton. And with that area converted
into some other production, the pecuniary
results reached would be better.
At the average rate of production it would
take 400,000 acres to produce this one hun
dred and fifty thousand bales of cotton.
Putting such an area say in corn, with the
average production of fourteen bushels to
the acre for the ten Cotton States, we see
5,600,000 bushels of corn as the product,
which at the average farm price given by
the United States Department Report of
56.7 cents per bushel shows over $3,000,000
in corn. A quarter of a cent on the largest
crop yet reported would reach some $8,000,
000, and not ten million as assumed by the
Alliance. This three million dollars of corn
made, carried to the enhanced price of the
cotton crop, would show over $11,000,000,
which carried to the amount saved by using
jute would show $15,000,000, which the
farmers would have in pocket against$4,000,
000 after deducting the greater cost of using
the cotton bagging, which shows a loss of
$11,000,000 to the farmers in hard money.
But from another point of view the position
of the Alliance is strong and unanswerable.
The sentiment of
sEL-HELP AND SELF-PROTECTION
is altogether beyond a mere money count.
The organization which this jute tight in
spires is above all valuation. The senti
ment involved is no idle thing. It is what
every great ruler in the world has recognized
as an essential factor in human government
and as that which to a certain extent is un
conquerable. To raise the cry of no jute, is
to call the roll of the Southern farmers and
array them for the first time as one body on
the line of self-defense and self-protection.
To begin with, this difference of fifty-one
cents to the bale between jute and cotton
bagging will in the end be done away with
CHEAPER COTTON BAGGING
product and other regulations of trade.
Again, who can tell that the planters would
have been allowed the present rate of ten
cents for jute bagging with the cotton bag
ging competition out of the way? Twenty
five per cent added to the present price of
jute-would put jute at twelve and a half cents
instead of ten, which would wipe out the
whole difference between cotton and jute cov
erings. it was to meet this very thing that
the farmers have formed their Alliance, and
if they had not moved in this matter they
would have had to pay in all possibly 15
instead of 10 cents. In the bands of a
trust the only limit to the price of jute was
what "the business would stand," as they
say in railroad circles where the monopoly
o1 transportation is enjoyed. This organi
zation of the farmers, then, is as timely as
it is right.

In the matter 9/t advances the farmers
have sufferd el exactions, which has not
only kept heir noses to the grindstone, but
has hampered trade in the South and stayed
te progres .nvion of the Unio**in
many directions. The seven thousand mil
lion dollars of cotton made since the war
has been spirited away from the farmers,
and largely from the Soputh, so that this vast
production, which would have once and
under other auspices proved a steady tide bif
1old to the South, tending to the develop
unent of all our rich resources, has been
t~rned in other channels, and the South has
tobe for capital when she should have
ben independent of the world to-day for
her building money. It is a low estimate to
say taat at least ten per cent. has been taken
Iout ors our cotton product since the war
which hbould have remained with the farm
er at fair and just rates for advances made
them. We thus see over twelve millhons of
bales Or somxe seven hundred millhon dollars
gone out of oux .working capntal whi'ch should
have remained here in some business shape.
The reports of the Agricultural Depart
ment at Washington have warmly animnad
verted on this matter, urging with perfect
truth that the cotton producers of this coun
tr aehad to bear a burden which no
business on earth could successfully carry.
That the planters have stood the pressure
so long shows the wonderful resources of
our section and the grit of our planting class
If in dealing with this matter the Alliance
should interfere with the general trade of

is not only good morals but good political
economy. Our farmers will find in the end
that they cannot hold the plough and keep
shop at the same time. It is none the less
absolutely necessaly that they should see to
'it that they are not eaten up, body and but
tons, by the cost of advances, and take such
steps as they shall find necessary to protect
them from extortional rates in the advances
Looking the matter all over, we do not
expect to see the Alliance interfere harmful
ly with the general trade of the South. As
soon as the farmers begin to get their own,
it will be impossible to keep this money
from freely going into trade for the thousand
and one comforts and luxuries which the
families of the farmers will want as soon as
a comparative prosperity shall be felt in our
great farming class. And that will mean
better business all round for everybody and
We are convinced that the farmers are on
the right line, and if they keep politics out

ance, Tells what the Farmers are Do
To the .&litor of the NKetes and orier:-T wo
days' absence from home prevented mny see
ing your editorial under above heading
sooner. I now take the earliest opportunity
of answering, but I regret my inability to
give you more definite information.
The inability of the "West Point" and
"Lane" mills (to these all the orders from
this State have gone) to fill orders earlier,
and the increasing determination not to use
jute bagging, may delay somewhat the mar
keting of the cotton crop. But as soon as
it was known that most of the shipments
would be as late as from the 5th to the 15th
of October the Alliances in the several coun
ties began to cast about for substitutes
"Dundee"' bagging, "pine fibre," "burlaps,"
"old" bagging, etc.-and I am unable to say
how much of these substitutes have been
scured, but I am advised that the earlier
shipments from Marion and Marlboro coun
ties will be covered with "pine fibre."

obligations as they fall due, and if, in doing
so, some of them should be forced to use

in obtaining all that they may need, and if
they should be forced to do so, they will not
likely stand on the tr ast prce of the article,
but they will "go slow" in the purchase of
the substitutes and slo wer in the purchase of
