LIEN LAW. OR RENr LAV.
We are constantly being asked if
"the Leuislatire will repeal the lien
law." This is a (utstion hard to an
swer for the reason that it is difficult
to see how t1 e repealing of the law
can benefit those who are clamoring
for its repeal. The landlord has such
an advantage over the man who fur
nishes supplies, tMat we have come to
the conclusion the lien law '-as been
choked to death, because very few
merchants will feel like risking their
money and credit under existing con
The lien law, like every other law,
is taken advantage of, but who will
deny that the law has done good.
Many a man for years past has sup
ported himself and family by the
lien, and had it not been for it he
would have been forced into a con
dition equal to slavery.
The complaint of the lien law is the
exorbitant prices charged by the
merchants. Will those complaining
stop and think of how few mer
chants succeed in the lien business?
Take the financial crashes, the mer
cantile failures and see if they are
not in a majority of cases among
those who have furnished supplies
on liens and have failed to collect.
Then why make the complaint
against the merchant? Very recently
we heard a man abusing the lien sys
tem and a certain merchant who had
furnished him supplies; the fellow
said the merchant had charged him
two prices for his goods, and there
ought to be a law against such ex
tortion. Naturally we thought the
fellow had, by straining every means
at his command, succeeded in pay
ing out, but was left with nothing to
buy his winter supplies- On the
same day we heard the merchant
who had been abused say, that the
fellow had not paid him one cent,
and gave as an excuse "that his rent
took all he made." So here is a case,
which is one in many, where the
merchant and the lien system were
being abused when neither had re
ceived even a part of their just dues
No, it is not the lien law that is to
blame with the honest man; many
such fail to pay their liens, it is true,
but one of the greatest stumbling
blocks in their way is the extortion
ate rents charged by the landlords
who take advantage of the law mak
ing their claim preferable, and there
by often prevent a man with honest
intentions from paying for that which
sustained him, to make the crop. In
our judgment, although the idea is
not popular, it would be more just
and it would prove of greater benetit
to the people generally-landlord,
merchant and tenant, for the Legisla
ture to let the lien law jog along on
its stumpy road, and some attention
be given to remedy the law now on
the statute books which,if it remains
as it is, will be a bar against many a
poor honest man getting credit, be
cause he is so unfortunate as to not
have been blessed with lands that he
There are some landlords who see
that a change must come, but there
are others who will not see, and these
will learn when it is too late. If a
tenant cannot obtain supplies, he
cannot farm and make a crop to pay
rent, and if a merchant will not fur
nish him,the landlord will have to,or
his lands will lay idle. It is easily
seen that idle lands cannot bring a
revenue for taxes and other things.
If the landlord furnishes the tenant,
he must be financially well fixed or
give a mortgage of his lands to obtain
credit; business men must be secured
to get credit themselves; then if a
crop failure comes the mortgaged
lands must he brought in to meet the
deficiency, and the result is ruin.
We therefore think it would be the
part of wisdom for the landlords and
the tenants and the merchants to
have the protecting arm of the law
to be fairly and equitably thrown
around them, that all interests might
be properly protected.
HE DIDN'T RUN.
In a recent issue of the Manning
Times, Senator Apr~elt, who usually
takes a seat in the: bald-headed row
in politics, wonders if Mr. J. W. Mc
Collough, a candidate for superin
tendent of the penitentiary, is the
same McCollough who "out ran a
pair of horses" at the Darlington
riot. Since Mr. Appelt has not men
tioned the matter again, we concludle
that he is still "wondering;" so we
take lelasure in informing him that
Mr. J. W. McCullough is not the man
who out ranj the hxorses, nor did he
have anything to do with the Dar
iington riot, not eveni being in Dar
ling on that memorable occasion.
THE TIEs editor usually takes a
position in politics, so that his read
ers are not put to guessing to "know
where lie is at,'' and when we asked
the question about the D)arlington
riot episode we really wanted the in
format ion, because we are not willing
to do a candidate an injustice, and
as Mr. J. W. McCullough is a candi
date for superintendent of the~ State
penitentiary, and hails from Darling
ton we wanted to know something of
that a McCullough did figure very
rapidly in the Darlin;ton riot, and
to copy after the Record's style of
variety sh~ow parlance, he was a
"-warm metuber" after his race away
from the scene of conflict; then when
the "war" was over, he became some
what conspicuous by being arrested
on the charze of murder. We areI
glad to be informed that Candidate
McCullough and Sprinter McCul
lough are not the same men, as it is
not real nice for a man to be defeated
on another's record. It is far letter
that he be defeated upon his own
William Jennings Bryan. the great
Democratie leader. has severed his
connection with the aruy and is now
a private citizen, free to discuss the
great public questions. lie is Op
posed to the administration's expan
sion theory and clings to his free sil
ver views. When Colouel Bryan was
in service his duties as a soldier pre
vented himt from discussing political
questions, but from now on Bryan's
views will become a part of the po
litical literature that will be spread
over the country for the education of
the masses. The Republicans recog
nize in him a foeman worthy of their
steel and a very dangerous compet
President McKinley has been tour
ing the South and his trip was one
ovation after another. The people
of the South gave the presideut a
reception, befiting the high office he
holds,and we feel sure the effect of all
of this will be a better understand
ing between the Administration and
the Southern people. The speeches
delivered by the Chief Executive are
being highly praised for their liberal
thought and patriotism. His refer
ences to the confederate dead, especi
ally, have touched the hearts of the
people, and aside from partisan poli
ticsMcKinley has captured the people
of the South. Were it not for the ra
eial conditions existing here McKin
ley would receive a tremendous vote
all over the South, but as long as the
Republican party remains the guar
dian for the negro, just so long will
the people cast their votes for some
other party, it matters not how much
they admire its chieftain.
The Legislature will soon be in ses
sion and we sincerely hope the work
will be done efficiently and with de
spatch. There is no need for a long
session and if the members get down
to work from the beginning, the ap
propriation bills and all legislation
which is actually necessary can be
gotten through with,inside of twenty
days. The per diem of members is
certainly not an inducement to make
a prolonged session, and if our law
makers can cut down the number of
days it will be that much saved to
the taxpayers who are now strug
gling under a load that cheap cotton
will not relieve.
The coming General Assembly is
made up of much new material,
and in nearly every delegation there
is at least one member who has an
idea which he wants enacted into
law; but in our opinion, unless the
idea is of the gravest importance. un
der the present depressing financial
conditions, that member would be
serving his constituents well if he
nurses his pet, for a more propitious
time. This session should make a
record, for business with little talk,
and only such measures as are a
pressing necessity, should be intro
duced. We see it stated that the
levy for State taxes cannot be re
duced without crippling the pub
lic institutions; wve hope this is a mis
take. If the present levy was suffi
cient to meet the demands when ma
terial, labor and the necessaries of
life were much higher, we think~
there ought to be some way devised
to reduce the tax and meet the de
mands in proportion to the present
prices of everything. Those in
charge of our public institutions will
have to learn to make short rations
do, when the larder is not full. In
all public institutions there is a great
waste and the only way to stop it is
to bring things down to "hard pan,"
just as the taxpayer has to manage
with his private affairs- Those who
are clamoring for larger appropria
Itions for the colleges had better be
content with what they have been
getting, because the country is in no
condition for increasing the expendi
