TIHM MANN1G TIMES. 1
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, December 19, 1S94.
Pe-ce Without Sacrifice.
The Columbia State of the 17th
instart will have it that "The Man
ning Tines, which may be consid
ered the best reflector of Congress
man McLaurin's views," is afraid to
come out and name the "pie-hunters
and place-grabbers" it referred to in
its last issue. We desire to inform
the State that the editor of this paper
does not wait to learn the views of
Congressman McLaurin or anybody
else, but should his views meet with
the approval of Congressman Mc
Laurio, it is a source of gratification
to know it.
In our editorial of last week we ex
pressed the hope that the people
would come together and we are sin
cere in that hope. We do not pro
pose to go back to find who is re
sponsible for the division among the
people, but we are going to make our
tight to restore peace in the ranks of
the white Democracy in this State,
and we will succeed if not thwarted
in our purpose by extremists who
- will see no good in the Reform
movement, and who stand up in the
Senate chamber and hurl "war to the
knife" into the teeth of Reformers
that offer the olive branch of peace.
The Manning Times did "repel
with indignation the intimation that
McLaurin had betrayed the Reform
movement," as such papers as the
Headlight endeavored to make it ap
pear. McLaurin wrote a letter ad
dressed to the editor of the Times,
and in it he gave expression to his
views on certain matters of public
concern, which every man has the
right to do. There was nothing in
the letter that showed betrayal, but
on the other hand there was a.-great
deal in it that showed McLaurin was
on the watch tower--oking out for
danger.,. Whie we first read the let
terwe did not approve of some of the
exoressions he used, but when we
learned that his references to
"squedunks" meant men, who to
catch popular applause, were trying
to imitate Governor Tillman, we
agreed with him that instead of the
people taking up imitators they
should seek men with merit of their
own. But the last campaign is a
thing of the past, and there is no use
in sifting old ashes. What the peo
ple are interested in now is the fu
ture, and instead of those newspap ers
that formerly opposed everything
suggested by the Reformers continu
ing such a policy, we hope they will
come with us and join in to bring
about a better state of feeling than
The Manning Times is a strong be
liever in the principles of the Reform
movement, because it believes those
principles are founded on right, and
while we are anxious to see the white
people of this State a unit in senti
ment, we do not want to see the Re
formers sacrificing those principles
for the sake of peace. Peace can be
obtained without the least sacrifice of
principle, and it must be. The
cause of our differences is not that
our principles are wrong, but becaflse
a few politicians in and out of officei
find it to their personal interests to
keep the people as wide apart as pos
sible with turmoil and strife, just as
a scandal-monger goes from one to
another in a community spreading
The time is at hand for people to
know' who are true Reformers, or Re
formers-for-revenue-only, and if they2
will sift out the Reformers from the
others, the war that has been on us
for the past four years will be at an
end. Father will again meet son ini
loving embrace, brother will greeti
brother with a warm grasp of the<
hand, and neighbors will again meet
at the cross-road store to swap lies
Those members of the legislature
that opposed the resolution yester
day.inviting President Cleveland and
his party wvho are now visiting the
State to visit the General Assembly
during his stay among us simply
mnadt asses of themselves, but fortu
nately for the decency of South Caro
'lina, only two or three opposed the
resolution of common politeness.
A Complimentary Letter.
Manning, S. C., Dec. 1'7, 1894.
Editor The Manning Times:- i
I have read with pride, pleasure,
interest and gratitude, your timely,
eloquent and peaceful editorial,
which gives such wholesome advice
to the people of South Carolina. My
dear sir, though we differ on some
points which admit of argument and
opinion, we have ever met together
and voted alike at the polls, neverthe
less. It is often the case that men
differ on public polity, yet they work
in the same cause, because unity is
demanded for the public welfare.
* Appreciating such an end, you have
wisely and patriotically held out to
t'2e gaze of all concerned in the pros
pErity and happiness of our distractedC
State, "the olive branch," as the basis
of brotherly patriotism, love and
union. What can be a more nobler
spirit than the peacemaker? Not
only does he merit the thanks of the
patriot, but he can also lay claim to
the blessing of his God.
The constitutional conventibn just
ahead of us, ought, as you advise, be
composed of patriots, rather than of
partisans. If only our patriotic citi
zans compose that August assem
blage who are to meet in our capitol
a: our seat of government, all will be
welil. But otherwise, new differences
of opinion may arise, which may be
s >adverse to our future union, that
a-iother constitutional conventioni
may be the result of some other party
iai the distance. We should remem-i
ber that our present one-sided con
stitution is the sole cause of our call-2
ing a constitutional convention. If 1
Carolinians will be wise and prudent,
the v will follow strictly v-onr most ex
c ellent and patriotic a - -y If a
consituton be adopted -.i.. .. willi
orce the- white people into unity,
;uch clapping of hands and shouting
.or joy will be heard all over our now
livided State, as that we will be re
minded of the grand and glorious
Washingtonion Revolution, and its
most happy termination. My dear
ir, you are right in position and in
opinion, and unanswerable as to ar
gument. Though you respect and
contend for the present good of
South Carolina, yet you have not
been unmindful of her future, and
other generations which must suc
ceed each other. Senator B. R. Till
man, on a memorable occasion, pro
phetically said: "We cannot afford to
divide." No man ever uttered a
more statesmanlike sentiment than
that one of his. No one can doubt
the statesmanlike ability of our new
U. S. Senator. He can now afford to
lay aside the politician, as he must
henceforth wear the robe and the
dignity of the sage. We must unite
as a people if we would have our old
ship of State ever manned by our
own fellow-citizens, who can then
proudly announce to the world that
South Carolina shall ever be their
own dear inheritance in the present
and the future as she has been in the
past. Our fathers left her to their
own natural children by a deed of in
heritance, though those who by con
quest have presumed to blacken her
fair face forever if they can. God
forbid that they should succeed in
their unholy crime against their own
race. Harmony and union alone as
you have advised so wisely, can save
us from the most damnable State
government of which the human
mind can possibly conceive of. Let
our contemplated constitution then
be of such a statesmanlike character
as that it will admit of no changes or
amendments in future time, Let us
take heed by the warnings of your
polished pen if we would be wise.
This is no time for quarrelling or
threats, taunts or ridiculing. Such
nonsense may answer the ends of
heartless partisans, but could serve
no good purpose in a constitutional
convention. It has now become both
a matter of necessity and patriotism
with us. We should vote like free
men. Every citizen should knock
any man down who would dare so
grossly insult him as to electioneer
him for his vote. Let the people do
the voting thenselves without any
outside assistance, and we then will
have a constitutional convention com
posed of men who will have their
own political snuff-boxes at hand.
That is the way to do this business if
we would wish to see the people of
South Carolina united and free as
were our fathers who deeded our
State and country to white men in
letters of blood, written with pen
I thank you, my dear sir, for bay
ing dared to discharge your duty
in this solemn hour of our division,
o independently of party proclivities.
Gon in the good work, and may
God both bless and speed you in
our creditable efforts.
Your friend and fellow-citizen,
Joiis L. E.WrERLING.
N. B.-My congratulations to the
Eon. J. L. McLaurin.

The good people of Georgia, Tennessee
mud other States are now demanding of
:heir legislatures such laws as, in their
udgement, will conduce the restriction or
extermination of the whiskey traffic within
:he borders of these States.
The legislature or Georgia has under dis
:ussion a new bill to turn the liquor traffic
>ver to dispensaries, Land it seems to be
ianging fire a little.
It has always astonished mue that when
egislation against this, the worst enemy of
sod and man, is proposed how some men
il stand up in respectable audiences and
sk for time to deliberate, and time to
~onder, and timec to discuss a question that
ny man with sense enough to go in out of
shower of rain could settle by walking
he streets of Atlanta, Ga., or Nashville,
enn., from T'oelock in the morning till
0O o'clock at night and watch the ingress
~gress of saloons and determine in a mo
nent's time that the open saloon is the open
~ateway to hell..
I have no patience with the "ws states
nen" and ".conserv~ative Politicians" who
rant to mature their thought and act in the
est interest of humanity whenever tem
erance legislation is suggested by their
I have just returned from a hurried trip
brough South Carolina. I spent one day
nd a night in Sumter.
In company with one of the pastors in
:he city I visited a dispensary. I went
;hrough it. I saw it.
The dispinsary of Sumter is a nice store
oom in the centre of the city, with all the
>ottles and demijohns labeled an d sealed
iitting up on the shelves.
At the front door of the dispensary there
s a place cut off with pickets, something
hke an insurance or real estate office, about
en feet square. This is the only part of the
~uilding the publbe can enter. Liquor is
old by the dispensary keeper, from a half
int bottle to four gallons and three quarts
o any individual. It opens at seven in
norning and closes at six in the evening.
?here is no loafing, or drinking, or treat
ng within the dispensary.
As bad as this may be, it is a thousand
>er cent. better than the open saloon with
ts hangers on, with it., young men going
. destruction and the old bums making it
heir rendezous. I am no advocate of the
ispensary. I have fougLt whiskey in all
ts forms for fifteen years. I fight under
black flag. I show no quarters to, nor
ak any quarters of, the whiskey traffic.
:t has left its scar on nie.
It has invaded the precincts of the homes
>f my loved ones and made some of them
ear the stripes.
I am conscious of the power of the whis
:ey traffic. I know how parties and poli
icians tremble when the whiskey traffic
hakes its fist, I know its power to lobby,
know its power to buy. Whenever and
rherever any State in this Union shall have
n unpurchasable and unbulldozable legis
3ture, then we shall have laws for the
>rotection of home and we will get such
egislation as will retire the whiskey traffic,
'r exterminate it.
I know itis asource of revenue to the
tates, cities and towns, but it is a most
olemn fact that whiskey has never paid its
It takes more to police it, to control it
so called), to punish its offences and its
riminals than it ever paid in revenues to
my State or to any conmmunitv.
I know that the closing of the saloon dii
esary does not shut off the whiskey traf
ic. It is an infernal species of lawless
iess and the crowd who traffic in liquor
ill sell liquor until they are in hell a-fry
ng, but we must acknowledge the fact that
nherver blind tigers live they are a re
lection upon every sworn officer and a dir
race to the prosecuting attorneys, grand
urors and judges whose duty it is to ar
-ign and punish them.
Whenever you find blind tigers you will
id that perjury camps all around them,
md I verily believe that any man who will

Slie in any court as black as perdition
We may talk of election laws and fair
lections and all that sort of thing, but
mine-tenths of the debauchery of the ballot
oxes can be traced to liquor.
There is no fact clearer to my mind than
bat nine-tenths of the corruption in poli-I
ics and social life. against~which moralists:
roclaim and which newspapers denounce
traffic as its prime cause.
Why men can't see this and why they
don't know this is a myster" I can't solve.
I have lived in a dry town for were than
ten years, There is no such things in
Cartersville, nor has there been for years,
such a thing as a local blind tiger. Oc
casionally a I -w down negro or ower down
white man will peddle it arovad the out
skirts of the town out of a jug, but nine
tenths of them are caught and punished,
as the records of our courts will show. A local
blind tiger that you can scent or see is as
unknown and unheard of in Cartersville,
Ga., as n ice factory in Greenland.
We have adjusted ourselves to all the
conditions of a dry town. A few old bums
still get their jugs by express, but, poor fel
low, they will soon be dead and gone.
We are not raising a young crop to per
petuate the jug trade, I trust. after our old
bums are dead.
Gentlemen of the jury, do your duty;
don't listen to the whines and cries and
hypocrisy of the gang who will cry:
"What will we do if we cut off this reve
nue?" "If we don't have saloons we will
have blind tigers." "Mor(' whiskey is sold
in dry towns than wet towns." Every
where it has ever been tried it has proven
Do your duty before God. and the good

A Farmer's Views.
REHOBOTH. Dec. 8.-Once there
were two brothers, tillers of the soil.
Jack most every year had corn to
sell and seemed to be gradually
climbing the financial ladder. Bill
was a corn buyer about the plant
ing season. Jack goes to see his
brother Bill, and as was usually the
case asked his brother if he was
through planting, upon which he in
formed him that he was. Jack seeing
a good piece of land that was not
planted says-to Bill, "Why don't you
plant that field in corn?" "Oh,"
says he, "I can't tend it." "Well,"
says Jack, "you plant it and I will
try and befp vou." Upon this en
couragement Bill plants the field.
When the busy time came on and the
grass began growing Bill calls on
Brother Jack for help. "By Jove,"
says Jack, ". am so pushed up now I
can't, but you just go ahead and do
all you can, and I will help you as
,soon as I ean." So Bill kept pushing
on. After a while lie calls on Jack
again, only to hear the same song.
So Bill tended the crop without
Jack's help. and the next year Bill
did not have any corn to buy.
Now, brother farmers, let's plant
more corn and other grain and less
cotton and not have any corn to buy.
We have often heard it said, "Show
me a inan with a barn full of corn,
and i'll show you a man with plenty
of everything else necessary fora liv
ing," and we believe it true. Where
there is plenty of grain there is plen
ty of inilk, butter, and bacon. On
the other hand, show me a man that
plants his entire farm in cotton and
has his barn and smoke house in the
West and I will show you a man liv
ing on a mortgaged home or a rented
one. Almost every farmer readily
says that "planting cotton puts him
in-debt, but I am so far in debt I
cant quit planting it till I get nearer
out, then I am going to cut my cot
ton crop down." Well now it 'does
not look very logical to us that if
planting cotton is what put him in
debt that continuing to plant it will
bring him oat of debt. But some
will say, "Well, it is not worth while
for me to reduce my cotton erop un
less everybody else will do like
wise." Well, now, woald it not be
better to do so, if it <iid not affect
the price of cotton, to better our own
condition? I do not mean to say to
entirely quit the cultivation of cot
ton, but let's raise it as a surplus.
Mr. Editor, do you not think that
if those farmiers having suitable to
bacco lands and can control a suffi
ciency of labor, woald cultivate to
bacco instead of cotton, and those
not having such lands raise what cot
ton they can after raising plenty of
provisions and thereby make their
corn and tobacco a surplus, that the
farmers would again become a pros
perous people iNow, here are a few
igures in favor of the tobacco cul
ture: On any suitable tobacco land
where any one can raise 500 lbs of
lint cotton, you can easily raise 1,000
lbs of tobacco. Let's average each at
8 cents per pound. We can readily
see that tobacco will nearly double
cotton, and I have been told by those
who have experience in the tobacco
culture, that after the first year there
is no more expense to raise a crop of
tobacco than cotton. We know that
it is a little expensive to equip our
selves for curing it.
Well, Mr. Editor, I guess I have
said enough on this subject, for we
farmers are all strong-headed, and
we will not stick together in any
conbination, association, or organi
zation. SAM TATTLER.
THE PAINS OF ItHEUMATISMI
According to the best authorities, oiiginate
in a morbid corndition of the blood. Lac
tic acid, caused by the decomposition of
the gelitinious and albuninous tissues, cir
culates with the blood and attacks the fi
brous tissues, particularly in the joints,
and thus causes the local mimiifestations of
the disease. The back and shoulders are
the parts uisually affected by r'heumatism,
and the joints at the knees, ankles, hips
and wvrxsts are also sometimes attacked.
Thusands of peole have found in Hood's
Sarsaparilla a positive and pei'manent cure
for rheumatism. It has had remarkable
success in curing the most severe eases.
The secret of its success lies in the fact that
it attacks at once the cause of the disease by
neutralizing the lactic acid and purifying
the blood, as well as strengthening every
function of the body.
Si'DIEiRoN. Dec. 13-Some days ago in
the News andl Courier I saw that Sunmter
was moving in the mnattr of having a po
tato starch factory'. That's all right, but
if it is the onle we are trying to get here,
she will be disappointed, for we are going
to have it. We are iaso corresponding
with parties North, and have some latters
which contain some mighty intes.'ting read
ing. We hadi a meeting of our citizens, and
developed the fact that we ca n easily support
the factory, though they will use from
twenty-five hundred to three or four thous
and bushels a da?y. Yes we admire Sum
ter's.push and energy but we do not admire
the hog except wvhen it has four feet. Now,
they can wvell alford to hands off ini this
matter; don't reckon it will make any <iiff
ference though, so we can ahead, and prom
ise to put a high eity t ix on it as one of the
inducements. Gen. Forrest was oncc asked
the best way to win a battle. He replied,
"Get there iirst with the most men." W~e
expect to get there with the most induce
ments. It has been said that "All things
ome to him that waits." We have been
waiting so long that our spirits have wilted
to some extent. Now, we will all get star
hed up again.
At the 'stareh" meeting it caiie out that
one man in onr community had put his
whole firm in oats, except what he will put
in corn. He will not plant a hill of cotton.
Says if we get the factory here he will lantj
oni potatoes though. 'There is a much
larger acreage being put in oats than ever
before,and ii the price of cotton will just stay
down till cotton planting time is over, our
otton acreage wvill be very much reduced.
Our community was shocked to hear of
the death of 1;'r. 1t. N. Wells. Hiving been
born and raised right here the mmunity
