THE MANNIG TIMES*
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, January 30, 1S95.
Mexico is trying to have a little
scrap with Guatemala. Let 'er roll,
it won't hurt us.
TLe McLaurin letter is being fully
discussed by the newspapers in the
State, and they all differ as to the
effect the letter will have.
We would suggest that the Attor

various boards of county Commis

understand their duties.
Senator-elect Tillman favors the

The Columbia State in referring to
our comments on the McLaurin let
ter, says: The Manning Times had
an editorial loaded with "semitic im
agery." Perhaps so brother, but
it affords us pleasure and relief to
know that our editorial was not
lor.ded with stiff-necked, high-church
bigotry, and narrow-minded jack
assedness as was the slur in the edi
torial'paragraph in the State.
Governor Tillman in an interiew
sometime ago said- the constitutio Ial
convention should be made up of
men without regard to their factional
affiliations, and the newspapers of
the State applauded him, but when
Congressman Mevaauiin said so, some

Doctor Pope's object 1i less it is to
aid the Republicans who are contest

Daring the recent sitting of the

Eight thousand State troops are
on duty in the city of Brooklyn to
keep down riots resulting from labor
strikes. The corporations have the
labore'rs by the throat and have called
upon the government to protect them.
The New York Times sent a reporter
to one of the offices where these la
borers were being paid off, and he
found the men kicking because they
were only given fifty cents a day after
being promised two dollars. Every
paying office was thoroghly guarded
with police and soldiers, and the poor
laborer had to take his fifty cents or
fare worse and this too, in the
land of the free and the home

that meetings be held at the varions
county seats on march 2d, to select
three representative men to attend
the conference, and we hope Claren
don will not only be represented but
that she will be represented by three
men who are fully imbued with the
spirit of the call. Something must
be done in wisdom to avert the dan
ger now threatening South Carolina;
heretofore we have been having our
family quarrels and every thing be
came serene when the battle was over,
but with time, changes came, and
now we are not only to contend with
the colored Republicans, but with
unrcupulous white men who have
gone into the Republican camp and
now propose to lead the negroes to
overthrow white man's supremacy.
It will not do to content ourselves
into thinking that these men can
do nothing; they can do something,
and will do something if we do not
obstruct them with judicious organ
ization. We must organize for the
coing conflict; the enemy are being
thoroughly organized in full view.
Whit men are their leaders which
gives them boldness. A few years
ago a white man who would raise
his hand against his brethern, would
have received the scorn and ostracism
of decent people, but to-day he is
actually applauded by a sufficient
number to give us a great deal of
trouble and endanger the cause
which must be maintained at all
hazards. Let every section of the
county be represented at the meeting
in the court house on the 2nd day of
March, and then let us see to it, that

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the mu
cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube gets inflamed you have a rum
bling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed deafness is the
result, and unless the infiamation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its nor
mal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; Dine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for any
case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.

Big Prizes For Big Pigs.
[From the News and Courier, Jan.24, 1895)
The News and Courier will pay $100 in
gold to the two farmers or other persons
who shall raise the two heaviest 'hogs in
South Carolina during the year 1895. This
amount will be div.ded into etwo prizes.
The prize for the biggest hog will be eighty
dollars in gold, and for the second biggest
hog twenty dollars in gold. A third prize
for the hog showing the largest gain at the
lowest costs, will be a comp'ete set - of the
Americanized Cyclopedia Britannica,
bound in morocco and consisting of ten
The only condition of the contest is that
every contestant must be a yearly subscrib
er to the Weekly News and Courier. The
contest will close on December 25, 1895.
and the prizes will be awarded as soon
t' ereafter as it is possible to compare the
returns and ascertain who have raised the
winning hogs. Contestants will be re
quired to send to 'The News and Courier
not latter then January 1, 1896, a certifi
cate signed by three witnesses, and sworn
to before the nearest Trial Justice, giving
the age, gross weight and net weight of
their hogs, and stating as nearly as possi
ble the methods employed in raising and
fattening the hogs, the cost of raising them
and the breed of each.
The contest will ~.se open to every man,
women and child in the State who is a
yearly subscriber to The Weekly News and
Courier, and who can own and cultivate a
pig. The purpose of The News and
Courier in offering the prizes is to encour
age the people of the State to rajse their
own meat and to show that South Carolina
leads in the production of hog and homn
iny, as it leads In the manufacture of cot
ton goods, Some days ago we received a
letter from a Barnwell County farmer sug
gesting that The News and Courier offer
premiums for the biggest .hogs, and we.
have adopted the suggestion. Our Barn
well county farmer said:
"It is gratifying to the friends of your
paper to see the interest manifested in the
welfare of our farmers. Only a few years
ago The News and Courier urged the peo
ple to plant tobacco, which, from all ac
counts, has been a blessing to many in the
Pee Dee section of the State. N4ew you
are showing what our people can do in
raising their own bacon. I would suggest
that The News and Courier offer a pre
mium of $100 to the one killing the heav
iest hog next December I believe that this
would have a good eflect and cause many
of our people to give more attention to the
Hog, and that next December there would
be bigger hogs killed in this State than
ever before. This plan would allow the
smallest farmer to compete for the prize."
The reports from all parts of the State
which we have published show that while
the people have little money they have
more home raised hog and hominy than
in any year since the war. Some of the
reports of big hogs that we have received
are almost startling, so big were the hogs.
and grown at so -little expense. It has
been demonstrated that bacon can be pro
duced in South Carolina at an average cost
of three cents a pound.
The News and Courier will pay one
hundred dollars in gold to the two men,
women or children who shall grow the two
biggest hogs this year. Every farmer in
the Stato should enter for the contest; every
town in the State should try conclusions
with its country neighbors.

URGES A BOND ISSUE
Cleveland to Congress on the
WNTS QIICE AND POSITIVE ACTION.
Declares What He Believes to be the Only
Available Remedy, However Much
He May Regret the Necessity.
Not Unfriendly to Silver.
WASHINGTON, January 29.-President
Cleveland transmitted to congress yes
terday a special message on the finan
cial question urging the immediate ac
tion of congress, and on lines specified:
In the opening paragraph the presi
In my last annual message, I recommended
to the serious consideration of the congress the
condition of our national finances, and in con
nection with the subject indorsed the plan of
ourrency legislation which, at that time, seem
ed to furnish protection against impending
danger. The plan has not been approved by the
congress. In the meantime the situation has
so changed and the emergency now appears so
threatening, that I deem it my duty to ask at
hands of the legislative branch of the govern
ment such prompt and effective action as will
restore confdence in our financial soundness
and avert business diaster and universal dis
tress among our people.
In am now convinced that its rejection by
congrdss and our present advanced stage of
fnancial perple:ity, necessitates additional or
Lack or Confidence the Trouble.
After reviewing our "natural resour
ces, unlimited in variety and product
ive strength," the message continued:
The real trouble which confronts us consists
in a lack o. confidence, widespread and con
stantly irMasing, in the continuing ability or
disposition of the government to pay its obli
gations in gold. This lack of confidence grows
to sa.mc extent out of the palpable and appa
rer.t embarrassment attending the efferts of
the government under existing laws to pro
cure gold and to a greater extent out of the
impossibility of either, keeping it in the treas
ury or cancolling obligations by its expendi
tures after it is obtained.
The only way left open to the government
for procuring gold is by the 'issue and sake of
An adequate gold reserve is. in all circum
stanoes, absolutely cssential to the upholding
of our public credit, and to the maintenance of
our high national character. Our gold reserve
has reached such a stats of diminution as to
require its speedy enforcement.
After giving statistics of the money
now in the treasury, not in gold,
"therefore, does not meet our difficul
ty," the president says that silver is not
the issue, and adds:
Whatever ideas may be insisted upon as to
silver or bimetalism. the proper solution of the
question now pressing upon us only requires a
recognition of geld as well as silver and a con
cession of its importance, rightfully or wrong
fully acquired. as a basis of national credit, a
necessity of an honorable discharge of our ob
ligations payable in gold and a badge of sol
What the President Urges.
He further reviews the demands made
by the friends of silver and claims that
he is not unfriendly to the white metal
but is not willing to see gold entirely
abolished from our curreney and
finances. The message reads:
In my opinion the secretary of the treasury
should be authorized to issue bonds of the
government for the purpose of procuring and
maintaining a sufficient gold reserve and for
the redemption and cancellation of the United
States legal tender notes and the treasury
notes issued for the purchase of silver under
the law of June 14th. 1890.
The principal and interest of these bonds
should be payable on their face in gold. be
cause they should be sold only for gold or its
representative, and because there would now
be difficulty in favorably disposing of bonds
not containing this stipulation.
I suggest that the bonds be issued in denom
inations of twenty and fifty dollars. and their
multiplies.' and that they bear interest at a
rate not exceeding 3 per cent per annum. I do
not see why they should not be payable fifty
years from date.
The president concludes his message
with an avowel of reluctance to issuing
more bonds in present circumsatncea,
but believes it necessary to a checking
of a suspicion of our disinclinatin or
disability to meet every national obli
gation. _____ ___
