Prohibition in the State.
On another page will be found a let
ter from Rev. H. F. Chreitzburg, and
a copy of as petition to the Legisla
Aure to prohibit the sale of spiritous
liquors in the State. Often when a
man is approached to sign a temper
ance petition, or asked to vote the
dry" ticket, he replies tha the does not
'believe in local restriction, bat that
he is- opposed to the sale and use of
whisky, and would gladly support a
prohibition movement. Tnat is
what the Good Tempi-s of this State
are now working for, and what they
have a bright hope of attaining. A
prohibition bill was introduced pur
y late in the last session of the
' ure, so that it would come up
ong the first things the next sea
sion. - We feel confident that the en
tire Claiendon delegation will sup
port this movement, and unless the
--liquor men make unusual efforts the
bill will receive such strong support
all over the State that it will certainly
pass. We have several petitions and
will be glad to furnish them to any
-,xne who will interest themselves in
securing names. Let us all work to
vether with a will and with a deter
mination to succeed, and success is
No Pay; No Paper.
Oar subscribers will p -e bear in
mind that THE HAI,-lJG T.]Ers is run
on a strictly cash basis. We do not
send it out just for fun. We publish
all the county news we can get hold
of; we publish all legal and official
advertisements; we publish the Alli
ance news; we keep our readers
posted generally; we publish adver
tisements for nearly all the leading
merchants in Manning and Sumter,
and for a great many of the best
bouses in Charleston; we endeavor to
make Tsz Tis a necessity in every
home in Clarendon. For all
this we charge only $1.50 a
year, scarcely three cents a week, but
we insist that we shall get our money
before we deliver the goods. We
gave the credit system a thorough
trial, but it didn't work. We have
for two years tried the cash system
and it works like a charm. We have
more subscribers than when we ran
en the credit basis, and we make
some money out of it. Before all the
p t went to the dead-beat. Now
i. the dead beat has to get his reading
second hand and it makes him feel
sheepish to read a borrowed paper.
We want to keep every subscriber
we-have and to get more, but unless

to come of.~ We dislike to cut off a
name;it hurts us awfully: but then

We are compelled to follow the crowd.
The law says we must. We have been
following the crowd in accepting Re
publican governments during the last
thirty years. In the South many of
-our best men who believed in the
Union followed the crowd into seces

crowd into the straightout movement
of 1876 and have been following it
ever since. The News and Courier
followed the crowd in swallowing

newspaper first and a Democratic
newspaper afterward, so far as South
Carolina is concerned.
If wehad to choose between these
two eburses 'we would rather follow
the crowd of white men into the sub
treasury-foolish, false and dangerous
as we believe it to be-than to follow,
lead, or gowith the crowd of negroes
into radicalism or stand aside and let
-them carry the State there.
We are sure the News and Courier
will follow the crowd when the time
comes, as it has always done. It
talked strongly of 4'primnary or split"
last year, but fell meekly into ranks.
The difference between us is that the
Greenville News says what it is going
to do and does it, while our friend at
Charleston threatens to do things and
doesn't do them.
We believe we can whip the sub
treasury inside the Ddmocratic party
_-the orgn'ized white manhood of
the State. We are going to try todo
it if we live. We are not going out
side the party todo it. We are not
going to make any bluffs and if we
-have to eat more crow as a matter of
duty to the public and common sense
we will do that, too.-Greenville News.
The colored people of this community de
serve a great deal of praise for the courage
displayed in their efforts to have an agricul

They bcjin to-day and should have the

It is to be hoped that when their fair is
over they will feel encouraged to continue
the good work.

Santee Baptist Association. g
This body met last Thursday with the I
Baptist Church at Bishopville and adjourn- ti
ed on Sunday night. All the ministers of
the association were present, except two,a
making nine in attendance. Rev. Mr. C
Mahoney, we hear, was detained at home 0:
in consequence of the weakness of age. A d
fitting tribute was paid to him at the meet-c
ing, and resolutions passed showing how .
high a place he occupies in the esteem of ii
his brethren. The reports from the churches e
were generally good and, in some cases, b
were excellent. Over $2,500 were con
tabuted during the past year to mission
and education, two thousand spent on t
ehurch building and repairing, while, at
the same time, the work at home was sus
tained and carri'ed on. In membership a
there was a gain of nearly 200. All the
churches have been supplied with pastors g
during the year, and the outlook for the n
coming year is full of cheer. e
The Baptist of the state expect to open
an Orphanage at Greenwood early in 1892,
and the meeting at Bishopville added three 8
hundred dollars to the building fund which
is now being used as fast as raised, to erect
cottages for the use of the Orphanage.
Several gentlemen from abroad were pres
ent, to represent the different benevolent '
causes to which the Baptists are contribut
ing, and to all of them generous help was
extended. Col. Hoyt asked for four hun
dred dollars for the Furman Memorial
Fund, and the churchies readily subscribed

ie people took the matter in hand at that
wee and in twelve months made a report
a clear profit of 25 per cent.
[f such an enormous profit can be made
the canning business at Laurens we see
reason why Manning cannot do like
so, because the market for the goods
med out is not local. The whole world
a market for the goo<' and the supply is
equal to the deLland. therefore a can
ng factory properly equipped and man
ed is bound to bring about good results
the investors and at the same time help
g others who are perhaps not as well sup
ied with this world's goods.
We need some kind of manufacturing in
istries here to place our town in line with
her towns, some of wLich have only sprung
to existence since the war, while others
e much older, but whose growth was held
ck by the lack of enterprise. As soon as
rew enterprising people took hold of the
ins and pushed forward with nanufac
ring industries the town took on a new
owth, population increased, more indus
es were put in operation, property be
me valuable and the town was on a boom.
Manning can do the same thing if the
ople want to. They can, by pulling to
ther, accomplish wonders, and they can
d will by remaining apart and divided
ep the town from progressing.
There is scarcely a day that we do not see
bere a charter for some kind of a faegry is
sued from the office of the Secretary of
ate, and some time ago the Netws and
wrier published a statement of the in
-ease of manufacturing industries through
it the State, but we failed to see anything
om our town. Who is to blame for it?
hv, of course, the citizens themselves.
they would meet and confide in each
her and go to work with a purpose of im
roving the town, success would be the re
ilt and in a short space of time Manning
ould have an increase of population. The
sy hammer and saw would be heard on
I sides and the lots that are now being
;ed for cow pastures would be converted
to flower gardens with handsome resi
mces in the centre of them.
