MANNING, S. C.:
WEDNESDAY, OCT. 2,1895.
There is some talk of adjourning
th nvention and going back to
finish ,e work in January. We
think thdea good one If the mem
bers, when they do go home, will
devote themselves to studying the
needs of the people.
If Governor Evans had earried out
his promise to get married he would
not be opposed to incorporating the
school tax in the new constituion.
Put it in that document, gentemen,
and not leave this all-important mat
ter to the whims of a legislature.
Again we call the attention of news
paperdom to the fact that the parties
receiving papers addressed to the
Enterprise have requested a diseon
tinuance, as that paper has been de
funct for nearly two years, and The
Manning Times is the only paper
now being published in Clarendon
county. Brethren, go over your ex
Senator Tillman sneers at Robert
Aldrich's suffrage plan, but with all
due respect to the senator's wisdom,
the Aldrich plan has a great deal of
merit in It, and it is deserving of
serious consideration. If that plan
will stand the test of a Supreme
court made up of a Republican ma
jority it is what South Carolina
needs, but if it will not stand such a
test, it had better be dropped.
Every memberof the Constitutional
Convention should see to It that the
new constitution provides for a sys
Stern of free schools which irill give
~thme-children of the taxpayers an op
portunity to go to school at least
th ine months In the year. To have
such asysteml, If necessary, put in
to the organic law a provision that
each taxpayer shall pay a four mill
tax for school purposes and then
leave to the Legislature the right to
enact a law that will allow the tax
payer to select the school in his
school district where his school tax
money shall be applied. We must
have a better system of free schools
or none at all. If the Legislature
would refuse to appropriate such
large sums of money for colleges
that have an attendence or less than
a hundred students and would take
that money and divide it among the
-primary schools, the children of the
taxpayers who are not able to send
abroad would be benefited. South
Carolina can educate her children
and she should do it.
-AN ENTERPRISING SECTION.
-,Foreston and Surrounding Country
as Seen by Others.
Editor Manning Times: As my profes
sion takes rme over this titale often and.
- being a close observer, I not only notice
the business of places, but also the crops
and ote resources, and while I snee thrift
and progress in many places, the most
noticeable that has come under my obser
vation is atthe little town of Foreston,
just below you on the Central read.
I uas there in July, and from the out
Lok then I thought it was about ready to
b3 funeralised. I had occasion to astop
over again last Sunday. What a change
met my vision ; I could hardly believe my
own eyes. The first thing that greeted my
vision was a large two-story building near
the depot-one that would be a credit to
a city, much less a village. The first floor
is used for a general merchandise and the
second for hall purposes. It Is being
erected by Dr. L. W. Nettles, who will
soon put in a large stock of merchandise.
The main street was full of cotton wagons
a'iting their turn at the gins, while
others were unloading at the depot.
A little further down the streetlIsaw a
syrup mill in full blast, with tons and
tons of cane strewn around ready to be
ground. Four stores are now well stocked
with new goods. I was informed that an
other was soon to be erected, making six
in all The town was full of country
people. I was wondering where all these
stores were receiving the patronage from.
I bad noaion to drive into the surround
ing country and saw sonme of the finest
corn and cotton I have ever seean, and thtus
an explanation was found.
Near the village is a field of corn that is
estimated to make fro~m forty to fifty bu.'h
els to the acre, and the owner told zae that
he bad only put 100 pounds of fertilizer
per acre on the land, and 200 pounds of
fetilizer p~er acre on land that is good for
a bake of cotton to the acre. To look at
the land you would not think that this
were possible, but the facts are there be
fore you, and are indisputable.
In the country to the northward of the
town the farmers, I am told, bave gone in
to the tobacco-raising business instea.l of
planting cotton with such gratifying re
sltsn that very little cotton will be planted
A company is now forming to build a
tobacco warehouse here, and this, no doubt,
will assist Foreston materially.
The water in this section is very good
and the people have good reason to feel
proud. On my return trip to the village I
had ,eisio~n to stop at a newly-bored well.
Te wate r was clear and sparkling and as
cold as mountain spring water.
A flourishing school has been running
about two weeks.

is not very distant when a muan who has a
few a acres in tblas vicinity will be inde

Jefferson Davis's Mansion on the t
Gulf Falling into Decay.
GUARDED BY ONE CUSTODIAN. E
An Ex-Confederate Takes Care of the
Deserted Place, Which is Barred .
Up to Keep Out Curiosity
A correspondent of the Times 1
says that a short drive of a
few miles down the beach of the i
Mexican Gulf and historic Beauvoir c
is reached. It is one of the most I
pleasantly situated country seats on
the coast, commanding as it does, a (
full sweep and a broad perspective. a
As I drove up the place looked to be t
lonely, yet it is picturesque in its
raggedness. The house, a typical I
Southern home, with its wide, long- f
verandas, and high windows, loked t
though it may be some feudal castle
commanding the ocean front or a pal
ace gone to rack, around which had
grown a forest. The building, about
a half century old, and its -surround
ings, told the story of decay-a sad,
living sequel to that of its late owner i
-the leader of the "Lost Cause." r
This old-style Southern mansion is v
built after the manner of the houses r
of the wealthy planters of ante- t
bellum days. It is built on brick m
pillears about six feet in height, large f
doors, wide halls and high windows. t
The gulf breeze sweeps under the 9
house and through it In every open
ing, so that it is always cool and
pleasant. Being built on pillars of C
brick the building is not damp dur- E
ingthe rainy season.
There are groves of live oak trees
in the yard, some of them of a centu
ry's growth, which luxuriantly shade
the neglected grounds, and whose I
dark green foliage and gnarled
branches twisted into innumerable
shapes by the battling elements,
seem to give to the lonely place a
more weird appearance.
The huge front gate is barred, and,
In answer to my summons, a man
came out of one of the smaller build
ings. He eyed me with suspicion-as t
curio collectors frequently called. I
told him that I was not in search of
curios, but had merely come because
of the historic associations of the 0
The custodian, Frank Niedel, an
ex-Confederate soldier, lives on the
place with his wife. He unlocked,
unbarred, and unloosed' the chains
from some of the doors, as if we were
going into a prison. The door of Mr.
vis's office was doubly looked with P
bolt and chain, for this is the central
point of attack of the curio eollectors.
They have cut splinters from the ta
ble where he wrote the "Rise and v
Fall of the Southern Confederacy," a
have torn leaves from the books in
thlibrary, and, a few books have
been stolen. 9
The bookcases are now strongly t
looked, but the custodian showed to
me some of Mr. Davis's choicest vol
umes, and the proof-sheets of the
"Rise and Fall," with corrections, in- T
terlineations, and additions in his
own bold style of penmanship. "Here
is where he sat when he wrote his I
history," said Niedel, "you can see p
that by the ink stains on the carpeta
Teold tlemen had a habit of u
throing en ownward just af- tt
ter dipping it in the ink. Maybe is
that was because he had too much tl
ink on thepen, but he would keep p
doing this while he was studyin is
what to write, and sometimes het
would miss the mat, and the ink
would fall on the carpet, as you see tc
the stains there."
In a little room leading off from his
study room is his soldier's cot, which e'
he seemed to prefer to the heavy, old- a
fashioned walnut bedsteads, with
which the mansion is liberally sup
The pictures are packed, also all of?
the furniture except these huge,
heavy bedsteads. The settees are
covered with canvas, and everything
points to a removal. But whether it
is contemplated by those who have
expatriated themselves from this
beautiful spot nothing is known here
The garden, where once bloomed
and blossomed so luxuriantly the A
flowers native to the South, is now
overgrown with rank weeds and is
briars; the beautiful magnolia trees, E
the pride of the South, bloom no P?
more; their branches are broken and s
withering into decay and death. t1
Everything around and about the
historic mansion wore the air of de
cay and death and the most lone- .
some-looking, the saddest of all, is '
theliistorid mansion, Beauvoir, which ,
recalls to mind the eventful history ,e
of the late leader of the lost cause.

Mr. Lee of Sumter offered an amend

Mr. Derham of Horry moved to pay
each member an annual salary of
$150, without reference to the length

this was lost.
There was further debate upon the a
amendment offered by Gen. (Gray. A
motion to lay the amendment on the
