will admit TUE Massiso Tutxs to be. The
business men of this town have not given
us as uiuch patronage as they should-in
fact their advertising business has been
very ngeagre-but we hope that with the
bright prospect of a good fall .trade our
merchants will be more public spirited and
do more advertising. Does advertising
pay ? Ask those who advertise regularly
and they will tell you that it is the best
investment a business man can make.
Now that we have the only paper in the
county will not cause us to take advantage
of our patrons; our rates will be the same

in your advertisements eariy and often.

Next Sunday's Meeting to Be Held at

The exercises of the association were
conducted by Mr. F. 0. Richardson last
Sunday afternoon in the Presbyterian
church. He spoke on the parable of the
barren fig tree in St. Luke as applied to
unfruitful professors of religi )n of every
age. It exhibits a rule observed in the
divine administration, which should strike
terror to all who enjoy spiritual privileges
without improving them.
Every man is allowed a certain time of
trial, during which he enjoys the means
and helps necessary to piety. If he con
tinues ignorant of God's visitations, de
spises the riches of the divine mercy, and
goes on obstinately in sin, these advan
tages are commonly taken away from him,
his day of grace ends, the utmost term of
God's patience is passed forever, and the
man is delivered over to a hardened heart,

Brought Good Prices at the Darling
ton Sale Last Week.
At the tobacco sale in Darlington last
week Mr. Jamnes D. Reaves of the Fork
sold some tobacco, which he raised, for
$1.05 per pound. The tobacco raised in
Clarendon is much sought after on account
of its fine quality. Sumter is to have a
sale in the new tobacco warehouse to mor
row, and we expect that some fir~e prices
will be paid to induce our Clarendon
planters to carry the weed t> that city.
Sixty-five wagon loads of tobacco from
Salem went to Darlington last week, had
out of this number nineteen was from one
neighborhood in Douglass township.
These nineteen Douglass farmers sold
about 12,000 pounds of tobacco from 8) to
27 cents per pound. The Hardy Brothers
received 27 cents per pound for their en
tire lot. The general average received was
18 cents per pound for 12,000 aggregating
$,160. Now this is from a small portion or
We have not been able to ascertain how
many pounds the other forty-six Salem
farmers carried over and sold, but we have
ascertained that all of them would naturally
come to Manning if the proper marketing
facilities were here.
Just think of it, from one small neigh
borhood over $2,000 wvorth of produce was
sold. It does not take a wise men to see
that where so much money is paid out a
great deal of it is spent for goods. We are
informed that Douglas township alone will
sell over $30,000 worth of tobacco this year.

A FEW POINTERS
For the Delegates to the Constiti
tional Convention to
SUFFRAGE, SCHOOL AND LIEN
Questions the Most Important to
Come Up and Be Discussed
by That August Body.
Lon: O.%. August 26, 1895.
Editor The Manning Times: Seeing your
kind ofire'r to any one to express their
views as to what should be done in the
Constitutional convention, I thought I
w mild advance soiun- idras UpOL ont- cr
two of the more in-ortait isu, s that are
likely to conie L.efore that hay.
My advice to the delegattes eleeteid from
this county--who were chosen by all the
white people of both factions-is that they
should never be inlucel to take part in
any caucus, for, as we all know, a caucus
only carries out the wishes of partisans
and demagogues ; creates distrust and con
tention, makes bad laws and, as the
Conservatives had no candidates in the
field in this county and voted for the reg
ular ticket, our delegates would, in my
judgment, be very foolish to go into any
caeus ; but they .should be broad and
liberal in their views; listen well to all
subjects, and vote at all times for the be.t
interests of the whole people.
The suffrage question is one cf great im
portance, and has caused this State much
trouble, anxiety and expense in the pas',
and should be settled so as Lrii g about
peace an.1 unity amoi4 the whites an( yet
While I an not very iamiliar with con
stitutional law, I think it a good ide; to
give each and eveW man in the State one
vote and one extra for $500 worth of prop
erty and ever, real or personal-arid not
but the two votes to any one man, no
matter how much he was worth-to secure
white supremacy. It will be seen from
this that too munch power will not be given
to any one individual ; that the elections
would be fair, and fraud forever wiped
By this method we would soon have our
ofnievs filled with men of ability and in
tegrity, and not demagogues and coat-tail
swingers. Then -.n era of prosperity
would set in in this State, and how much
better. we will feel whei we know that
eleet:on frauds are a thing of the past and
can point with pride to honest govern
ment honestly administered. It is true, it
would place the negro in the minority
which would be right and just-and then
we could deal horestly with him and give
him his vote without being hurt.
Then there is the school question. I
think the two-mill tax should stand and
that the poll tax should be increased -to $2.
Then let every voter say to what purpose
his taxes should be placed, and have no
more equalization of the school fund;
abolish the office of school commissioner;
at each general election three men should
be elected as trustees of eack township.
These should have control of the schools,
as heretofore, and their orders be good to
the county treasurer.
Now, let us summarize : It the two-mill
school tax ad the Si poll tax kept the
schools open three months, the same school
tax, with the additiona' sl poll tax and the
commissioner's salary added, and no
equalhzation -letting every body's money
go to the school of his choio.-I feel satis
tied, that the schools will run seven or
eight months in the yea~r, and the board
of trustees can always te-l by looking up
the assessed value of all property in their
township, how much they have. Every indi
vidual would thus be interested in the
taxe. for his school, and this would cer
tainly cause a boom in every country
school in the State, and that is what we
need above all things.
The lien law is one of the worst curses
that has ever been visited upon our com
monwealth, and the sooner abolished the
better. Let every man live on his honor
instead of being dishonest and teaching
the rising generation to steal and lead a
dishonest life. For this reason I .vould
request our delegates to do all in their
power to wipe out this foul blot that now
iests upon our fair escutcheon.
Well, Mr. Ediitor, the above are the
ideas of a farmer and a Conservative, and
hope that they may prove of benetit to our
Last Sunday the children of the Oakley
Methodist Episcopal and the Dudley Bap
tist Sunday schools celebrated Children's
Day by appropriate exercises, wvhich in
cluded a cantata representing "Faith, Hope
and Love" in their mission on earth, and
the ultimate reward to all who exercised

their respective characters.

Doing Nothing to Encourage the
Farmners to Market Their
Our business men must certainly sce
that they arc standing in their own light
when they let a large portion of our farm
ers take their produce to another county
for the want of marketing facilities here at
home. Where is the business sense ex
hibited in sitting down with arms folded
to watch the procession of farmers with
th-ir wagons loaded with produce passing
the store doors on their way to Darlington
and Sumter? 'Tis true it will cost a few
paltry dollars to build a warehouse, but
what does the cost amount to compared
with the increase of trade and other bene
ticial results ? The faurmers of Claren don
would naturally do their bartering and
t ading at their county seat, but how can
they when our buciness men make -no ar
rangement to handle all of their produce ?
Manning is well equipped for the handling
of cotton and will pay as high prices as any
other town, but we should also be equipped
to handle tobaccco, and we must be if we
want to keep trade at home. We have
urged this matter several times and we ex
