FINISH 'IRE STATE HOUSE-WHEN!
This would be a queer world if
every body thought alike. Editors
as well as lawyers and doctors differ,
and it is by their differences that the
people have an opportunity to act as
Judges and render the award. THE
TDIEs has taken the position that the
tax payers of this State are already
too much burdened with taxes to
stand a raising of Lie State levy for
the purpose of finishing the State
house. It is estimated, the cost of
doing this work will take nearly if
not quite a half million dollars, which
will be bound to raise the levy unless
that half million -an be cut off from
something else. The question with
us, is not whether the State house
should be finished, but whether we
are at this time able to stand a raise
in taxes. The newspapers througb
out the State, with few exceptious,
are advocating the completion of the
work, and when one doe's take an op
posite view they come back and hold
it up to their readers as a thing that
has desecrated a grand sentiment, cal
the editor narrow-minded, and selfish
and in a flippant manner impugn his
motives. We believe we are the first
to protest against raising the tax levy
and we also believe when the general
Assembly meets our views on this
subject will prevail, we almost know
that our position would be sustained
if the question were left to the people,
let the question be raised in the next
primary when members of the legisla
ture are to be elected, and we venture
the prediction that very few who ad.
vocate an increase in the tax levy will
receive a certificate of election. Th e
advocates of the scheme to complete
the State house at any cost, and re
gardless of the people's condition get
warm under the collar when they are
confronted with opposition. Here is
a fair sample taken from the Saluda
There is nothing mnore absurd than
for a South Carolina newspaper to op.
pose the completion of the long neg.
lected State house. To hear a news
paper of the stamp of THE MANNING
-mhs, cry out, that Columbians are at
the bottom of such a move is doubly
absurd. It sounds more like the cry
of a scheming political office holder,
that is trying to tickle the whims of
his constituency in order that they
may retain him in office, than the writ
ingof a sensible, wide-awake journal.
ist as the editor of Ta TIMIs is. The
original plan of the State house, if the
war had not interrupted its comple
tion, would have made it one of the
finest pieces of architecture in the
South. While the original design
can hardly be carried out now, yet it
ought to be finished to save it from
further ruin and at the same time be
an ornament not only to Columbia
but for the whole State.
Of course it is absurd "for a South
Carolina newspaper to oppose the
completion of the long neglected
State house," when to have the de
sired work done will press the bur
den of taxat-on harder upon the
shoulders of the peoi~le. To beautify
and adorn the Capitol building the
people must be oppressed. We have
never said "that Columbians are at
the bottom of such a move," but had
we said so we would not have been
far out of the way. Just wait until
the Legislature meets and stand
around the hotels, it will be seen in
short order that Columbians are not
indifferent to the scheme, but on the
other hand there iwill be a number
with axes to grind. To intimate thai
politics and selfishness prompt4
our opposition to the raising of the
tax levy to finish the work on the
State house is unworthy of the Saluda
Sentinel and does not strengthen its
cause. Those who know us are aware
of the fact tbat hypocrisy is nota
part of our nature and our constitu
encv does not need any tickling tc
retain us in office. It is a late day
for TEE Timrs editor to begin tick.
ling his constituency "that they may
retain him in office,'' when the fact is
"his constituency" has never refused
him any honor he has sought, and
that same "constituency" has, agreat
many times given expression to their
confidence in him. We therefore
feel that did we fail to protest against
a scheme which, in our judgment, wvill
make the yoke of taxation harder tc
bear, we would be recreant to the
trust reposed in us and unworthy the
confidence of our constituents.
We are truly glad the Saluda Sen
wide-awake journalist;" it is in the
endeavor to retain the reputation of
beig "a wide-awake journalist" that
we get in the way to obstruct the
passage of an appropriation of a half
million dollars of the people's money
to beautify a building that wvill an
swer the purpose for which it is used
for many years. We venture to say,
had a proposition been made to ap
propriate a half million dollars to put
the country school houses in comfort
able condition so that the children
unable to go off to colleges can re
ceive the rudiments of an education
in a comfortable school building, the
same newspapers now advocating the
expenditure of a half million dol
lars to complete the State house,
would raise a storm and charge
the advocates of such a scheme with
wanton extravagance. There is no
scheme on foot to put the country
school houses in a comfortable con
dition, but if there was it would
surely have more merit because the
taxpayers would have some return
for their money in the satisfaction of
knowing that their children are not
shivering in the cold while at school,
but with the money spent on th6
State house the city of Columbia
alone gets the benefit in the way of
adding to her many architectural or
naments. We are not opposed to
Columbia being ornamented, and as
the State house is in that city, we
would be glad if the conditions were
such that we could favor making the
State's property, an oruament to that
progressive city which is not many
years off from being the "commer

The delegation that succeeded in
getting Charleston voted as the place
to hold the next National Education

and they are entitled to some sub

of Charleston. We congratulate
Charleston upon her good fortune,
and we are especially delighted in
her success because "Billy" Wilson, a
Clarendon boy, was a big spoke in
the wheel to roll the convention to

All things are not serene by any
means on the Island of Cuba and the
rumblings of a revolution are already

to get the people recently liberated
from Spanish oppression to revolt
against their liberators. It has-been

We had occasion to visit the city
of Augusta last Thursday and we
must say that when we left to return
home we carried with us a desire to
visit that beautiful city again. We
found the people exceedingly clever
and social, and we were placed under
obligations for the nice little atten
tions shown us. We paid our re
spects to the Augusta Chronicle and
made the acquaintance of Editor
Hook, one of Georgia's gifted writ
ers, and who is a newspaper man
that doesn't drink, smoke, chew or
"cuss." It was a pleasure to meet
him, and we believe that Augusta is
the only city in the United States
that can boast of such a newspaper
man. Hook is the original and only
one of his kind.
The Bennettsville correspondent of
the News and Courier says "that Col.
Livingston, within the last few weeks
has received quite a number of letters
from every section of the State urg
ing him to enter the race for Gover
nor," and then says that "Marlboro
will have a Gubernatorial candidate,
either Hudson and Livingston." This
correspondent may have a cench on
the thoughts of both Livingston and
Hudson, but we doubt very much
whether either of the gentlemen he
names will enter the race. We re
gard Colonel Livingston one of Gov
ernor McSweeney's staunchest friends
who could not be induced to run in
opposition to him, and as to Judge
Hudson, his bitter opposition to the
dispensary law and his long retire
ment from politics makes him, in our
opinion, one of the "has beens" that
will never come to the front any more.

hand performers will, in order to con

our opinion it is nothing but a trick
Ito give politician3 a hobby to ride
over the country. The people of this
State are not bothering themselves
with expansion or anti-expansion;
what is troubling them most is to
keep the taxes from expanding. If
it is the policy of our national gov
ernment to sail around the world and
pick up little unprotected islands, it
might be against our judgment, but
we are not going to work up our
selves into a frenzy about it; we are
content to let the representatives in
Congress attend to those weighty
questions, but we do not war~t to be
carried away from things of local in

questions and State questions sepa

William Jennings Bryan continues
to make the welkin ring with his sil
ver cymbals, and although some of
the anti-Bryan forces claim that he
has killed himself by talking so much,
we notice that he manages to keep
them guessing and retiring from the
field of action. Bryan may not be
able to win the Presidency, but there
is one thing almost certain, he is the
winner for the nomination, and there
are very many who believe he will be
the next President.
(From our Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, July 14.-Democrats
have good reason to regret the fright
in the ranks of the single gold stand
ard Republicans because of the warn
ings uttered by such Republicans as
Senators Thurston of Nebraska and
Chandler of New Hampshire. Ever
since the Eastern lepublicans began
the movement to try to put through
single gold standard legislation at the
coming session of Congress Demo
crats-have been heartily wishing that
they would succeed in doing so, be
cause of the marked advantage it
would be to the Democratic candi
date for President. Senator Chan
tiler was the first to tell his party as
sociates that they were playing with
political dynamite. Then came Sen
ator Thurston, who has presided over
two Republican national conventions
and who is much more influential, if
not so talkative, than Chandler.
Thurston makes it very plain that
Mr. McKinley never would have been
elected if the international bimetal
lism bluff had not been put in the
Republican platform and worked for
all it is worth by the McKinley
stumpers in the West and middle
West. He also intimated that he
didn't care a continental about silver
himself, but would take no part in
helping his party to invite defeat. He
expressed the belief that the effort
would not succeed in Congress, al
though he was not so confident about
the National Convention of his party,
of which he said: "The Eastern States
have a large representation in the
convention, and we know the colored
delegates can be won over." Of the
probabilities in Congress Mr.. Thurs
ton said: "With the narrow republi
can majorty in the House and the
moderate views of a good many re
publican Senators, I really do not
look for very much in the way of fi
nancial legislation between now and
the Presidential Campaign." Next
to putting it into a law, democrats
would like to see the republicans -put
the single gold standard into their
Ex-Senator Pugh, of Alabama, now
in Washington, doesn't wear any
cushions on his political views, nor
does he believe in trying to win by
pussy-foot methods. He said of the
next candidate and platform of the
democratic party: "I believe that
William J. Bryan is the wisest and
most reliable democratic statesman
living and that he is now better es
tablished in the confidence of the
American people and stronger than
he ever was, and can be elected after
he is nominated, as he will surely be,
by the next Democratic National con
vention. As to the democratic plat
form, let it be the Chicago platform,
with additional declarations against
the manifold trusts growing out of
the existence of the gold standard
and prohibitory tariff duties; also in
favoi of a vigorous prosecution of the
existing war in- the Philippines, until
peace and order is established and
the governing power of the U. S., is

Although the scheme to give this
country a standing army of 100,000
men was defeated in the. last Con

has been passed among the republi

opinion in the vicinity of their homes,
in favor of a large standing army, so
that when Mr. McKinley repeats his
recommendation to Congress for a
larger standing army it will seem to
be backed by the sentiment of the

The Farmers' Institute at Clemson.
Editor THz TIME.:
It was my privilege to attend a
part of the Farmers' Institute held
at Clemson College last August. An
other will he held the coming Au
gust and Clarendon should be rep
resented, not by two as before, but
by two or three dozen.
This was my first visit to Clemson,
and I went not a very enthusiastic
admirer and came away quite the
reverse. Having had some corres
pondence with the chemical depart
ment, I felt that to meet Col. Hardin.
Dr. Brackett, Mr. Shiver and Mr.
Thompson was to meet friends. It
was a great pleasure to be conducted
over this extensive laboratory by Dr.
Brackett, who showed me among
other things where the water and
fegtilizer analyses are made.
To go over all the buildings and
note their various outfits is, as some
one has said, a veritable exposition.
The Institute, however, was what I
went to see and what I want your
indulgence to write about.
The first lecture I heard was on
Wednesday night by Col. Newman
on Agriculture. It was a treat to
hear this gray-haired veteran farmer
hold up in such an entertaining and
admirable manner our humble occu
pation. Col. Newman declared agri
culture to be "the only ousiness with
a charter direct from the hands of
God." This high and noble tribute
was eohoed by the applause of the
large audience. He is the man you
know who was put out and then put
back. He is necessary to the busi
There were lectures on Horticul
ture and kindred themes by Prof.
DuPre. He is the man who looks
after the gardens, the fruits and the
flowers. It is said up there that all
the lady folks are in love with him.
A good thing probably that he also
is a gray-haired veteran. He is the
man who learns you how to bud and
graft fruit trees. Hie has some
urious freaks of grafting at his sta
tion and it is currently reported that
he can graft dogs.
One of the most interesting lec
tures was one by Prof. Shiver on Ni
trogen or Ammonia in Agriculture.
He had not gone very far when a
farmer, a graduate of Union College,
New York, remarked in an aside:
"The darned fool don't know what
be is talking about." A little later
bie said: "Here, give me a pencil, that
is worth taking down."
There were other lectures and lec
turers, the last being on "Education
for the Times," by P resident Hart
rlog. This was good and should have
been heard by a larger crowd of far
All of the lectures wound up with
,n invitation to the farmers to ask
~uestions. In this way was discussed
in an informal way many interesting
mbjects. silos, grasses, manures,
best methods of accumulating and
keeping stable manure, making com
post so as to hold ammonia without
irefanging, etc., etc. Quite a little

Leaded old farmer would tackle a
professor on some point. In this
way the "notions" and experiences

with each other and the professors,
making it almost impossible not to
learn some new "wrinkle" about the

boys again, having lots of fun with
their jokes. One big, fat fellow was
tickled to death at a joke he had got
ten on another one about eating up
all1 the ham. That makes me think
of the fare given the farmers. It was
good. I stopped at a private house,
but ate with the boys one morning
and had an elegant breakfast. Chef
Schilleter is a good cook.
An object of special interest to me

ages all by a student who did not
seem at all flustered, though several
ladies watched him at his feminine (?)
work. Professor Hart also lectured
on the Dairy. In it he was assisted
by a student in whom we hardly
recognized the milker we had talked
to at the milking shed the afternoon
The morning I left I was invited by
Col. Newman to take a ride with
him around the big bottom; it was
The Institute to be held will be
equally if not more instructive.
Every farmer there said that more
would go from their county, and our
county ought to be better represent
ed. It don't cost much and I am
sure it will be enjoyed.
I well know that lots of our farm
ers think their farming education is
finished, they know it all. But there
are some who have not clinched the
tree of knowledge so quickly and
easily. Now, both parties should
go-the one to learn, the other to
teach. If any farmer in Clarendon
who knows it all will go, he will find
gray-haired professors wvho will read~
ily admit they do not, and who
will be willing pupils. Col. Newman
says that on his farm near Atlanta
fresh fruits and vegetables are on
his table every day in the year. Can
any farmer in Clarendon beat that?
And yet we call him a "book far
mer !" Until we who nearly starve
at seasons on the farm for variety of
table fare can equal that we had best
take to his kind of book farming.
By the way, he remarked in a lec
ture this spring that the only text
book needed ini his school room was
the "First chapter of Genesis."
No doubt circulars will be sent out
in due time fully describing the com
ing Institute. I will simply repeat
that as many as can should go. It
will do no one any harm, afford a lit
tle outing at a very small cost, and
most certainly do the attendant
The teacher-s of the State have just
held a Teachers' Institute. Looking
over the list of attendants we see the
names of the very best teachers of

Not one of them but what was com
petent before to teach well enough
to please their patrons and make a
living. But we see them there per
fecting themselves - some in one
study, some in another.
At Clemson last August was point
ed out to me a son of the late A. C.
Haskell, who was there to study
dairying. I met also a farmer from
Darlington who was there for the
same purpose. So let some go for
one purpose, some for another, but
let a goodly number go by all means.
