THE MANMG TMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, April 30,1896.
The meeting of the Anti-Tillian
farmers' committee-convention last
Wednesday was composed of dele
gates from twenty-one counties. They
did nothing of a remarkable nature,
and possibly would have better ad
vanced their cause had they not met
at all. The proceedings will be found
on our first page.
The Summerton Star, P. G. Bow
man, editor, made its appearance last
week. It is a four page six column I
paper, and makes a very creditable
appearance. The Summerton people
have given it a better advertising
patronage, considering the size of the
town, than any paper in the State.
Every business house in the town, ex
cept two, as well as our recollection
serves us, is represented by a good
sized advertisement. Mr. Bowman
should certainly feel encouraged -by
this magnificent treatment given him.
The editorial and local matter of the
paper is very good. The subscription
price is $1.50 a year.
CoL Jo. H. Earle, who was present
at the coroner's investigation the day
after the Pinewood accident, was there
only as a spectator, and not as the
attorney for the Railroad company.
Messrs. Earle & Purdy, who are the
attorneys for the Railroad company,
were at once requested to look after
the interests of the Railroad, but Col.
Earle promptly informed the Railroad
company that from the duties of his 1
office as Attorney General of the State
be not only could not represent them
in this matter, but that if his services
were required at all, it would be in
favor of the prosecution. We learn
that the investigation before the cor
oner's jury was conducted without the
assistance of any lawyer.
LET PATRIOTISM PREVAIL
The strong opposition to Ben Till
man is gradually quieting down, and
it looks as if people and papers are
beginning to realize that Tillman is
not such a moaster after all. We do
not know how it is inother counties,
but in this county Tillman will re
ceive an overwhelming vote.. And
why not? If the people want him,
they havela right to elect him. He
may not be as cultured and polished
as others who have won gubernato
rial honors, but he is a man, fully
competent and qualified to perform
the duties of the office.
Some claim that all this much-a-do
is simply for the purpose of getting
the "ins" out, and letting a fresh crew
feed awhile on public pap. There
may be considerable truth in this,'
but then there are many, a very large
majority engaged in this movement.
who never expect to realize any profit

They will go to the polls, do
ecan for the Democratic party,
Sstand as firm and true as in '61
It has been said that the ins and
the "old line Democrats" will feel so
hurt at this movement, that they- will
simply leave politics severely alone.
We think this all wrong. Patriotism V
must prevail, and if the people in
terpower decide that one man must
-give place for another, the ousted onec
s-.~ hould patriotically exclaim, "I am
thankfulfor past kindness and will con-t
tinuerto prove my devotion." Tihe patri
otism that will endure only while me orr
my friend is holding office is not the
kind on which a strong government f
may be built.
There is one thing, however, that
we do not like to hear, and we are
& truly glad we seldom hear it: thet
charge that our State government is
corrupt. We do not believe a word
of it. Extravagance is some times
shown, especially in the legislature,
but in the State offices we believe we
have as honest government as in the
United States. Dishonesty, if it ex
ists at all, ist more likely to be found
m county and petty offices. And
should there be an entirely new set of
officers elected, we would not expect
any great change. Few would care to
see their own salaries reduced, and
when the new crew once got in office,
just like those who now hold office,
they would want as near a life tenure
to itas possible. There seems to be
a fascination about holding public of-t
fice, that causes one never to want to
give it up.
The farmers have determined to
have a change, and the best thing to
do, is not to oppose and thereby lose
all influence, but to gracefully yield,
and all will be well. Ben Tillman is
going to be the next governor of this
State, and he will make a good one,
too. ______ _
The Sub-Treasu.ry Bill.
We have published several articles
of late on the Sub-Treasury Bill, and
below we publish a very able article
by Judge Cothran. It is well worth
the careful and thoughtful perusal oft
every intelligent citizen:
The bill provides for the storage in ware
houses of all kinds of farm products~ which
are snitable for storage and shipment and
not of an immediately perishable nature.
'These ware houses; are to be built all over
the country. at an estimated expense, to be
borne by the Government, of somiething
like $50,000,000. U~pon the products so
stored certificates shall be issued by the
Government, and to the amount of 80 per
cent. of the value of the articles so stored
the Government shall lend to the holders of
these certificates, or receipts, money at the
rate of 1 per cent. per annum.
BEASON roR THE. BILL.
'l-he obvious reasoni of the demand for
this extraordinary legislation is the present
depressed condition of the agricnltural in
terests all over the United States, and es-t
pacially in the Western and Northwestern
ert~.e burnming of corn fm- fuel in the.3
;tate of Kansas is the most complete and
ummarized statement of the cause. Thi
s so far from being applicable to the farm
!rs of South Carolina and of the othe:
outbern States that it may be well to refier
,ery seriously before we give to the propose
ucasure our support.
.s I ai now serving as your Representa
ive in nire.ss my last term, it seeis t<
ue that I ami in a position to deal with y01
in a spiiit of the utmost frankness, and al
together free from any possible charge o
lemagogy in saying, that I regard the farm
in interests-t of the conntry as embracini
its very lonie and sinew th- mainstay an,
support t ti G:ivtrnmtent itm!'iV. These in
terests ari sniferiug from overprodnetion an
for the want of adenqat a.eans to transpoi
the tremendous surplus of prodnets to mis
kets beyond our own borders.
THE wEsT HAS GROWN TOO FAST.
On account of cheap and fertile lands ii
the West and Northwest, the vast tide o
immigration that has steadily flowed thithe
for the last twenty-five y.-ars, the bulky mi
ure of their products and their remotenes
from the markets of the East and of th
world, the prices realized have not been ze
munerative. Besides, the cost of living an
of production has been greatly increased b;
an unjust, unnecessary, and oppressiv
system of tariff taxation, resulting in a wide
spread and almost universal network of farr
mortgages, given to secure money advance<
by Eastern e italists. The census of th
present year, if correctly taken, will be, ii
this regard, an appalling disclosure to th
whole country. It required but a singl
good provision clop in the South, with
which we were blessed last year, to brin,
bout the catastrophe and along with it thi
demand for relief to them (not to us), whiiel
has found expression in the proposed sub
I do not believe that this picture is over
drawn or exaggerated. You may ask, hov
is it with ourselves? Many would doubt
less answer, bad enough. In my travel
ver the district last summer I did not fin(

aess half as well as he could have done tha

NO USE FOR THE PROPOSED wAREHOrsES.
To come directly to the point: Suppose:
3overnment ware house should be erectei
n your county, what would you or you
ieighbors put in it? Cotton bates are wel:
igh the only considerable surplus product
f your farms. Nobody eats cotton; it is tot
,ulky to steal without almost certain and
ipeedy detection of the thief: and if yot
ave no convenient place for storing it dur.
ng the time it is held before marketing,
ew poles laid upon the ground and a tem
porary shed of loose planks will suffice foi
protecting it f rom the weather. It is not sc
ith the Western farmer's prodncts, whicl
nust be carefully housed and kept undei
ock and key. Besides, what is the effect oj
withholding these different crops from the
narket? From 1861 to 1865 the world, b3
some means or other, managed to get or
without our cotton crops. In such years a.
we had from 1883 to 1889, if the corn, bacor
md flour that we required had been it
3overnment ware houses, cornered by law,
Ls this bill proposes to do, ours instead ol

nequal one, and the odds are all againsl
s. You can get on, for a time at least, witi:
worn and patched clothing, but a lean and
impty larder who can long withstand?
THE SOUTH BETIER OFF THUA THE WEST.
As bad as some may deem our condition,
t ought to afford them some relief to con.
ast it with that of others. Take the Statt
>f Iowa, for instance. I have already al.
.uded, incidentally, to corn burning Kan
;as. It appears from the agricultural sta
istics of Iowa for last year that the average
rield of corn, which is their main crop, wai
;0 bushels per acre, and the price at the crit
10 cents per bushel-gross yield in money
by the-acre $6. You can by proper care and
attention bring up any acre upon your farm,
ad that means every acre upon it, to pro
Ince a bale of cotton-1.200 pounds in the
eed, which yields 30 bushels of cotton seed,
he market price of which during the pasi
eseson was 20 cents per bushel, the exact
equivalent in value of the Iowa f armer's :X(
bushels of corn. Besides von have 400
pounds of lint worth 10 cents per pound,
rgainst which to charge up the expenses o1
production, and if it should take $40 foi
iat purpgseghieh-you know is not the
fac.7on would at least have $6, the pro.
ids of the sale of seed, as clear profit.
D)uring my travels over the district last
mmmer 1 had the pleasure of attending sev
~ral of the Farmers' Alliance meetings. I
pelt a deep interest in them, heartily approt.
ng every effort of the country to better theii
ondition. Like all the rest of nmankind
hey, too, make nmistakos. I ventured in a
nodest way to point out somie of these. The
>urden of their efforts seemed to be how and
vhere to buy the cheapest. That I told thiem
vas very wvell, but it is not the main thing.
[here is never mxuch trouble to buy, if one
ias the money with which to buy. It is
astly more im portant to have soieething to
DO NOT BORROW MONEY.
And so it is with one of the features ol
his sub-treasury scheme which is so well
alculated to catch gudgeons, by holding
mut the offer of lending mnny at a c'heap
'te of interest. It matters not what the
ate of interest is, in the end you will find
hat you have to foot the bill. The present
ndetednress of the Government, whose
aainstav' and support you are, is in round
imbers l,400,000,O0fJ dollars, requiring
iearly 50 million dollars to meet the annual
nterest. Now how does it strike you as a
inancial policy for one who owes 1,400 mill
ion dollars bearing interest at 3 and 4 per
ent. to lend ouit Li: m~oney at 1 per cent.
er annum, to say nothing of paying out
ther millions for ware ho'ises, for salaried
ifficils and so on, in order to get a chance
o commit such stupendous folly ? Comi
ion sense, sonnd reason, and good jnudg
ent are just as necessary in managing tihe
,1airs of government as they are in con
lucting a farm, a store, or a bank.
Some persons of much financial skill and
nergy may handle successifully borrowed
oney. These constitute the exception to
he rule. The rule itself .is exactly the re
erse of this.
A lesson maore valnaile to our people than
ny politico-financial device that cant be
onceived of is to be found in the pr'actical
rcept, borrow not at all.
THE RErPtLI~CAN PLOT.
In the frankness that shall characterize
his letter, I warn yon against extreme marn
nd measures. The old paths are the safest.
ery soon I shall take my pilace with you
ain in the ranks, and for my own part,
n the struggle that lies just ahead of us. 1
ray that we :nay have the best, the truest,
d the wisest of leaders. Accepting as you
mave done in the utmost good faith the re
ults of the late war, having adapted your
elves as best you could to the changed con
lition in your affairs, you do not realize
he bitter prejudice that the Republican
politicians still have towards vou. They are
aully determined, if they can, to pass the bill
iow pending in Congress, to regulate and
ontrol the Federal clections in the States.
[ts machinery, meant solely for the South.
rn States, is to be set in motion upon the
etition of five hundred voters in any one
f the Congressional districts. These will
readily be found in every Congressional
listrict in the States lately engaged in the
:ebellion (so called) and not in one of the
tates that adhered to the Union. Shoul]
;his bill become a law the struggles of 1h7C
will be renewved in South Caroline. and we
will need all of the wisdom, all of the muod
ration, all of the enthudasm and devotion
without which that splendid nectory would
ave turned into disastrous defeat.
There are other grave and imoportant
uestions that I wvould gladly bring to youi
tttention, and many other strong reasonIs
:hat might be given in opposition to tij
rroposedl raid upon the treasury, but tii
etter has been extended far beyord the
imits proposed at the outset. I vwould like
call your attention to the nholy allianice

Knights of Labor, which bodes no good t'

The Pull for Governor.
There has been a great deal said abon
who shall be governor of South Carolina
and this will be nine-tenths of the politica
talk until the August convention stills thi
te!ipest. The newspapers and their cor
respondents write about the governor as i
he were omnipotent; as if that onicer wert
in himself judge, jury, and sheriff to enforei
every right and redress every wrong. The
should pause form a imomen-t and learn the
first prineiples of State governmuent. Thi
Constitution confers the only functions the
Governor can exercise, and these are few.
He cannot pass any new or c..ange any old
law, nor can he prevent tihe passage of any
measure unless more than one-third of enel
branch of the General Assembldy agree witi>
him. His duties, as well as the duties of
all State officers, are executive, and pire
scribed hy the Constitution and the Acts of
the Legislature. Hence all that is said
against any of these offieials who have not
laid themselves liabie to an action on their
oiial bondIs, is sheer nonsense. Thiese of
ficers have not collected more taxes than the
Legslature levied, nor have they' sp:>n:
more mioney' for any one thing than the
L e..'isature a'ppropriated. These are facts
and ther cannot be denied. With an hon
estI far .inded memnbership in the Legisla
ture, the Governor and all his retinue are
not three feet high. B. Ri. Tillmxan, or any
other white man with brains and1 force of
character, can help or hurt the State forty
times as imuch by being on the tail end of
the ways aind imeants committee as he could
possibly (do by being at the head of the ex
eentive. T1hen why such a fuss about who
shall be gov ernor ? Is it not a mere mnatter
of tamste? Many want a fine shapely fellow
whio is an elegant speaker to show off well
at the big dinners and sociables given by
c ities, towns, and other States. Bnt there
are scores of homespun men in Pickens
county who would discharge all the real d-:
ties of the governor as well as any~ man thtt
has ever bh-ld the onfice.
The only waly to work a reform in the
State is to begin in the counties which have
been sending the wrrong men to th e Legisla
tre. Reform this almighty machine, and,
our wardI for it, it will put everything in
shpshatpe inside of sixty days. Biut the
wyv the people have been stirred up, there
is but on~e way to quiet themt, no matter who
i th?e Gov, rnor, or who goes to the Legisla
tre. Double the assessed value of the
property. reduce the tax levy. one-half, and
k nock oft one mill from the constit.ational
tw o mill tax. 0of course this cannot be
done, hence we sympathize with the menm
ers of th*e next General Assembl 1y.- P
