WE NEED OTHER CROPS.
We recently read a letter from a
gentleman who owns lands in almost
every Southern State to Mr. Barrett,
vice president of the Georgia Agricul
tural Society, upon the cultivation of
Chinese hemp as a profitable crop in
the Sauth. We had intended giving
our readers the benefit of the article
in full, but through somie means
when we wanted the clipping it was
misplaced. It may sound just now
like a dry subject, but it impressed
us so favorably that we will endeavor
to give our readers some light upon
this crop in the future.
It is claimied that millions of dol
lars worth of this Chinese hemp, as it
is commonly called, is imported an
nually from Italy and other Eastern
countries, and that the same soil and
climate that we have in the Southern
States to poduce the finest cotton
will make the finest hemp. It is
claimed that it has been grown most
successfully in Mississippi, and also
in Georgia right near Augusta, where
the soil and climate is practically the
same as ours here in Clarendon
county. The methods of preparing
the hemp for market by getting it
into bales is not near so troublesome
as the preparation of cotton for mar
ket, when we consider the ginning
and baling of cotton, and is scarcely
so troublesome as tobacco. It is
easily made and brings a good price
when put on the market, and our im
pression is that it can easily be made
a profitable crop to go along with to
bacco and take the place of cotton,
the continued planting of which is
making the farmers of the South
poorer every year.
We hope some of our more wide
awake farmers will keep this subject
in mind, and by writing to Mr. Bar
rett at Augusta they can get some
valuable information. There is ap
parently no reason why it cannot be
raised to advantage. The eastern
part of South Carolina, including our
own Clarendon county, is now recog
nized throughout the whole country
and abroad as being one of the best
tobacco growing sections in the U~nit
ed States, and twelve years ago such
a thing was not thought of. About
all the tobacco that was grown in
this county ten or twelve years ago
was a few stalks that some of the old
aunties planted near the chimneys to
make their private smoking, and now
what do we see? Any one who is
in Manning next Wednesday will be
impressed with the change, and there
is no reason why other and just as
profitable crops as tobacco cannot be
made to take the place of cotton.
About twelve years ago the late
D-. Ingram made an experiment with
tobacco in Manning, but was unfort
unate with bad seasons and aban
doned the crop. Shortly afterwards
Capt. Alderman planted a crop near
Alcolu, but for some reasons did not
continue it. Then a few enterprising
citzens of Salem, notably Messrs. J.
E. Beard, Lige and R. R~. Tomlinson
and A. T. Buddin took up the plant
ing of tobacco and made a success of
it. These gentlemen might almost
pe called the pioneer successful to
bacco growers in Clarendou. But it
wvas not long before the Messrs. Tur
beville, Baker, Morris, Floyd, Green,
McIntosh, Worsham and others went
into the business, and one has only.
to ride through the neighborhood of
' these gentlemen now and note the
changes of the past seven or eight
years to see what tobacco has done.
2lnere are other sections of our coun
ty which should be under last.ng ob
ligations to the people of the Ne~w
Zion and Douglass Swamp sections
for beginning the cultivation of one
of the~ most profitable crops that our
farmners have ever planted.
We want to see other crops planted,
and with tobacco, hemp and the
many other crops that we can raise
just as soon as we learn how, we will
yet some day have the best State in
the Union. We often imagine that
there are other States or countries
which are better than ours, hut when
we visit them we do so to find that
we have only heard the bright side
and nothing of the disadvantages and
drawbacks. There is little that peo
ple need that we cannot make here,
and diversified crops will do more
towards making us a happy and pros
Robert Ingersoll, the famous agnos
tic has at last gone to his eternal
home and we have no doubt that
he was convinced of the falsity of his
teachings on earth. Ingersoll was
one of the most brilliant and most
eloquent men in the United States
and having such magnificent attain
ments and attributes, made him the
more dangerous to society. He had
the ability to do good, but he pre
ferred to waste his talents in the op
posite direction. His death was sud
den, like the snuffing of a candle, and
the memory of the man should be
blotted out as quickly as was his life.
Secretary of War Alger has at last
succumbed to the demands of the
press and tendered his resiguation to
President McKinley. The resignation
was accepted in one, two, three or
der and a New York lawyer by the
name of Elihu Root appointed. Al
ger held out a long time and his ad
ministration was a rough and rug
ged one; it really is pretty tough on
the Michigander to be fired at this
stage of the game. We have no idea
that Alger is altogether to blame for
the conduct of the war; there are oth
ers equally at fault, if fault there be.
The press of the Union made a de
termined effort to force Alger's dis
missal and the desired result has been
obtained. Now will Eli get there and
Those newspapers editors in this
tate who are persisting in their in
timations that Senator McLaurin
made a deal with President McKinley
to vote for the peace treaty in return
for Judge Simmonton's official shoes,
know full well that they have no
foundations for their miserable asser
tions, and it is only a part of the con
cocted program which was conceived
long before the peace treaty was be
fore congress, for the gratification of
a sore-headed, defeated Congressman
whose district was very weakly repre
sented while he was in Congress. The
idea of charging John McLaurin with
being a republican is absurd, and
why is the charge made? Because
McLaurin in his judgement saw fit
to break away from certain self ap
pointed party leaders and assert his
own manhood. He voted for the
peace treaty after the American flug
was fired upon by foreigners, because
by rejecting the treaty it was virtu
ally acknowleding that Dewey had
no business in Manila bay. William
Jennings Bryan, the chosen leader of
the Democratic party, and who win
be the party's nominee next year if
e lives, advised and urged the demo
rats in Congress to ratify the peace
treaty. We read the declarations of
newspapers that declare AMcLaurin a
republican, and at the same time they
old up Bryan as a symbol of Democ
racy, and we are amazed at their in
consistency. If McLaurin by voting
for the peace treaty is a Republican,
then Br-yan who advised his adherents
to vote for the treaty must also be a
Republican and therefore should not
ave a place at the head of the Demo
ratic ticket. But where do these
editors get their idea that voting for
the peace treaty is treachery to De
mocracy? The declarations of a par
ty are made in its platform, and the
Democratic party has not as yet made
any declarations, one way or another.
t might as well be said that because
Hoar of Maesachusetts, and Edmunds
of Vervont, both distinguished and
life-long Republicans, have made
speeches against McKinley's war pol
icy that they are Democrats, we hear
no such charge as that, but because
McLaurin has seen fit to differ with
Ben Tillman on purely a question of
American policy, when no party feal
ty is involved, he is at once stigma
tized a Republican. Trake 3IcLaurin's
record in Congress and see how faith
fully his votes have been cast when a
question involving tbc Democratic
platform came up. No, MIcLaurin is
not a Republican, nor wa his vote
cast for Simonton's judicial robe, and
before his term shall have expired the
people of South Carolina who are
doubting him now, will see that even
if mistaken, he has been an honest
and faithful Senator, doing what he
could for his people.

FINISH THlE STATE HOUSE--WH ENi
This is the subject which is giving
the editors of the State food for re
flection during these hot days. It
seems that they are nearly all of one
mind. Some fellow pitched the tune
and the fraternity is joining almost
with one accord in the chorus:
It shall be did,
It shall--it shall --it shall
And away they sing. One brother
editor announces the question closed
since the press has so universally en
dorsed it. An editor began the
move and another editor closes it
with a gusto announcing that the
press can have done what it wants.
Why do not more of the editors want
administration of the government.
The Laurens Advertiser does not
join the chorus, but in an editorial
headed, "Busted," says:
"There is a small chorus of approval of
somebody's suggestion to finish the State
I House according to the original plans. The
estimates are put at some $300,000. We
had better go slow. If we start the busi
ness it won't stop under some nullions.
Th'.e House as it stands is good enough tor
the work done within its walls. Then if
we finish it up after the origial grand
conetptions it wli require millions fLr
statuary of o'ir great men. Of course as
an architectural study for Coluubians it
would discount the plain factory aid depot

Washington, July 21.--The refusal
of the administration to take any no
tice of the courageous exposure by
newspaper correspondents at Ma
nila of the deception practiced upon
the people of this couutry by Geti.
Otis in his official dispatches and of
the extraordinary tactics employed
by him to prevent the truth being
cabled by the correspondents, is a
tacit acknowledgment that the decep
tion has been carried on with the
knowledge and approval of the ad
ministration. This attitude of the
administration bas been barshly crit
icized by prominent Republicans as
well as by eveiybody else. If the ex
posure had been made by one cor
respondent it would have been right
enough to say that it might have
been inspired by personal pre-judice,
but it, was signed by every promi
nent correspondent at Manila, in
cluding those of the Associated Press,
which furnishes papers of all shades
of politics, aLd moreover it merely
confirmed what was known to many
for months past. If the administra
tion enjoys its present position, its
opponents ought to raise no objec
tion, as it is making anti-McKinley
votes by thousands.
Secretary Alger has told Mr. Mc
Kinley what he had previously told
everybody else-that his resignation,
which accompanied the information,
might take effect at his pleasure.
That was no news to Mr. McKinley
and has not relieved his embarrass
ment a bit. Members of the cabinet
are not in the habit of refusing to re
sign when asked by the President to
do so. The only man who ever did
so was Belknap, who had to be kicked
out of Grant's cabinet.
While it is not known positively
what concessions were granted by
this government in the four treaties
negotiated with England, under the
Dingley law, respectively for trade
reciprocity with the English colonies
of Barbadoes, Bermuda, British Gui
nea and Jamaica, it is said that they
are equivalent to a horizontal reduc
tion of 12 per cent. in the duties
levied by the Dingley tariff on the
products of those colonies. All of
these treaties will have to be approved
by the House as well as the Senate
before they go into effect. The time
imit was reached this week, and no
more treaties can be negotiated un
der the Dingley law.
Events this week have made it cer
tain that there is a movement on foot
in administration circles to throiw
Hobart overboard to make Governor
Roosevelt Mr. McKinley's running
mate in next year's campaign, the
idea being that Roosevelt's war record
will neutralize any defections caused
by Algerism and administration war
blunders and mismanagement. Roose
velt's consent has not yet been ob
tained, and that is why the idea is
being publicly pushed. The man
agers of the scheme think that if the
McKinley and Roosevelt ticket is ad
vocated by a large number of Re
publican papers it will tickle the van
ity of Governor "Teddy" to such an
extent that he will consent to being
shelved by becoming a candidate for
Vice President.~ Mr. Hobart's con
sent has not been obtained, either,
but that is not considered any more
necessary than was Levi P. Morton's
consent when a similar game was
playe 1, notwiths.tanding the close
personal friendship existing between
Mr. McKinley and Mr. Hobart.
Friendship counts for nothing with
the men who are arranging for Mr.
McKinley's political future.
"The trusts must go" is the key
stone of an organization which though
comparatively new, already claims
members in every State and Terri
tory. It is known as the American
AntiTrust League. The executive
committee of the league held a meet
ing in Washington this week. The
league, which has a full set of na
tional officers, thus sets forth its ob
ject: "The purpose of the American
Anti-Trust League is to arouse the
only power on earth that is stronger
than the power of money in public
life. Thatt power is the patriotic imn
pulses of the people. The little fin
ger of that power, when awakened, is
stronger ten thousand times than the
influence of all the billions of all the
trusts and combines of the land. Th'Ie
memories of the many' sacritices of
the fathers call us to action. If these
trust combinations are allowed to go
on they can plunder each of us into
poverty. No man knows how soon
the fear of hunger for his wife and
family will make him a coward. It
behooves us to strike while the fire of
iberty yet burns. The American
Anti-Trust League is non-partisan.
We call all American freemen to
council. If a Democrat or a Populist
or ai Republican public man has
shown himself to be a subservient
tool of this great corporate power,
then all the united power of the men
of the American Anti-Trust League
will be used to crush him and drive
him from public life. WVe will adopt
the tactics of our enemy until we
have created a lEgislative, j udicial
and executive power1 in sympathy
wih the public welfare. And wve

the people would stand. At any rate
