The Hon. Frank B. Gary of
Edgeield. Speaker of the House
of liepresentatives, has announc
ed his decision to run for Gover
nor this summer. Mr. Gary has
made a splendid Speaker of the
House, but he will likely have to
do some extra fine campaigning
to beat Governor McSweeney,
who seems to grow in favor as
his administration progresses.
Since the United States has
become a nation with many new
colonial possessions there will be
a lot of great big appointments
to be made by the President.
Probably the largest will be the
governorship of the Island of
Porto Rico. This will be a ten
thousand-dollars-a-year job for
four years and the privilege of
living in the royal palace at San
Juan. Then there will be five
secretaryships at a salary each
of four thousand dollars, besides
the numerous judgeships, etc., at
smaller salaries. Then since the
Hawaiian Islands now belong to
us, the Governor of those islands
will re,.eive five thousand dollars
a year, and his residence will
probably be in the palace which
used to be occupied by the late
King Kalakau. Numerous other
oftices pertaining to this little
group of Pacific islands will also
be created, carrying salaries of
several thousand dollars. But
perhaps the biggest plums that
will be reaped as a consequence
of Uncle Sam's new possessions
will come from the Philippine
orchard. This will 'consist of,
first, a commission, carrying with
it a big salary for each member,
besides numerous untold and un
known perquisites. Then will
come the Governor General, the
various secretaries of the colo
nial government, the supreme
judges, etc., each one getting a
big salary, all to come out of the
arnings to the United States
reasury from the respective isl
ands. Verily, when we slall have
orgaatized all of our colonial pos
sessi(onls these Porto Ricans and
Cuballs and Filipinos will realize
that t:1eir burdens will be about
the same, and that practically
the only difference between for
mer and latter times is that they
have swapped Spanish-speaking
bosses for English-s p eak in g

One more week and the session of
1900 will be over: notwithstanding the
fact that the legal fraternity are about
evenly divided as to whether a limit is
ixed'- the constitution for this ses
sion, the concensus of opinion is in favor
of adjournment at the expiration of the
forty days. Next week will be a rush
from start to finish, and scores of bills
will remain on the calendar to go over
for next year. All the bills relating to
Clarendon introduced in the Senate, to
gether with the amendments of other
bills affecting this county, have passed
the Senate -and are now high up on
the House calendar. suiteiently ad

The bill putting the Clerk of Court's
olice on a salary has passed both
Houses, and has been ratified: the same
can be said of the bill requiring the
Sheriff to perform the duties of consta
ble for the magistrate at Mar-ning with
out extra compensation. Both go into
effect January. 1901.

pervisor to draw his warrant for $200

Mrs. Kate Tobias, widow of the late
Samuel T. Tobias. who was killed in the
attempt to capture the notorious Bill
Dixon. passed the Senate and is now a
third reading bill in the House: it will
be ratified next week.
Major Richar-dson's bill defining the
duties of sheriffs with regard to escaped
convicts passed the House and came
over to the Senate. The committee to
whom it was referred made an urfavo
able report, on the ground that the
statutes now make it their duty to cap
ture escaped convicts. I have carefully
looked into this matter and I cannot see
wher'e there is any law compelling a
sheriff to make an arrest without a war
rant. except in cases of breaches of the
peace, and notwithstanding the unfa
vorable report I had the bill placed on
the calendar and it is now a second
Dr-. Woods' bill to exempt certain
townships from the stock law during
certain months is fat- down on the House
calendar, and I har-dly think there is
time to get it through at this session.

The broad tire bill which passed the
Senate against my prtotest was killed in
the House. but later resurrected and
loaded down with amendments and ex
emptions, Clarendon being among the
exemptions. to such an extent that the
friends of the measure are not anxious
for its passage, and I believe it will be
smothered to death by the failure of

for in the lHouse. hut there was a bitter
-i maoe to cut down the appropria
tion of the south Carolina College from
,500 to t20.000 which failed, then the
opponents Of the College attempted to
get a compromise to $25,000 which also
falled. This so embittered the oppo
nenrs of the College. that they lost
their heads and attempted a blutf by
o:fering to make an additlonal appro
priation of $100.000 for free schools: it
resulted in the bluff being called, and
the bil will come to the Senate with
this additional $100.000. and if the Sen
ate adopts it. the tax levy will go
bounding on up. from one to onc and a
quarter mills higher than last . ear. I
am a strong believer in giving the free
schools all the nioney necessary to
fturther the education of the children.
but I cannot see where this additional
$100,000 can be of sufficient hell) to war
rant an inerease in the tax levy: the
proposition was not made in good faith,
but i:: a spirit of "rule or ruin." Tne
taxes are two high now. and where
people want additional school facilities
ther can arrange it among themselves
by voting a special tax. and in my judg
ment they should not be forced by the
legislature to have this additional bur
den placed upon them. I hope the
Senate will sit down on this spirit of
recklessness, and as one. feeling as I
do about it, with the lights before me.
I am satisfied that my constituents will
not want me to eaS't a vote to increase
their taxes and I will vote and work to
defeat a scheme. which was coneived
in spite and disappointmet. If the
House kills the S100.000 rider, and the
State House completion measure. our
tax levy for this year will be 12. as
against 13 mills last year.
For the last few days the politicians
have been conspiring to capture the
scalp of Governor 31eSweeney. because
he recommended the abolition of the
present State Board of Control, and the
friends of the board are scheming in
every possible manner to bring about
the Governor's defeat: but Governor
MeSweeney is going right on attend
ing to his duties without regard to the
conspirators. he having full confidence
in the people standing by his sincere
efforts to have an honest and business
like administration. The Governor
feels that the time has passed when
disgruntled politicians can lead the
people from their sense of right and
justice. and that all of the intrigues of
men who have been driven away from
the public crib by the people's condem
nation. will amount to nothing more
than giving the representatives of this
disgruntled class. an opportun:ty to
illify, misrepresent and abuse a man
whose adminIstration has been worthy
the approval of the people. The more
I watch Governor 31cSweeney's course.
the more am I convinced that South
Carolina has never had as her Chief
Magistrate a man more determined to
permit his own judgment and conscience
to guide his administration, and while
he is always willing to receive the sug
gestions of his friends, yet he gives
them to understand that he alone is
responsible to the people, and that he
reserves the right to reject any and all
suggestions made by friends. and act
upon his own judgment. He often is
forced to turn down requests from his
most intimate friends, because their
claims are not such as warrant his
favorable action. I have never seen a
more independent ofticial. at the same
time he is courteous, and attentive and
gives every matter coming to his atten
tion careful consideration. In this
way. he only allows reason. justice and
merit to influence him.
Governor McSweeney is the moulder
and maker of his private fortunes and
is likewise the moulder and maker of
his political fortunes. In business af
fairs. his controlling rule was honesty.
and fortune smiled upon him, and in
his political affairs. the same golden
rule guides him, and the people are
smiling approvingly upon him and his
administration, and they will show that
aproval in the next p)rimary election,
regardless of all the combinations that
can be formed by politicians. We had
a magnificient address from Dr. J. L.
M. Curry this week which no doubt
influenced a great many members to for

it came to voting on educational appro

is Lower Than Cost of Materials
irj om The Rlaleivh News and Observer.1
Richmond. va.. Fel.. 1. 1900.
To the Editor: My attention has b..-en called
to a communication in the News and Observer.
pulished under date of Wednesday. January
31st. 1900. in reference to the advance in the
w ice of fertilizers. wherein it is stated that the
farmers of Pitt county. North Carolina. propolse
to organize and light the advance in the prices
of fertilizers, ar.d by insinuation outr Compan
is censured as the cause of this advance.
I desire tO Imake a plain statement of facts
and conditions as niw obtained in the f-rtiliz-r
trade. and to show to the dealers and con sumers
of fertilizers that the advance in the price of
manufactured fertilizers is not oniy just :md
warranted. but is alsolutely inecessary ad that
the manufacturers of fertilizers could not aford
to sell themt at the price rulin- las' year unless
the did so at a very heavy los
Now to get down to facts and tiures: we will
see what has really caused the price < f fertil
izers to be advanced this year over last:
Acid Phosphate being one of the principal in
gredients in all complete fertilizers. I desire to
show here how much this article costs to make
in excess of the cost price for the same thing
last year. The advance in pyrites. from which
sulphuric acid is made. is more than $2.00 per
ton over last year. The advance in Nitrate (if
Soda. which is a necessary incredienit in the
manufacture of sulphuric acid. is fully $.00 per
ton more than last year. Phosphate Rock has
advanced a minimum of $l.75 per ton at the
mines. and in some grades of rock the advance
is more than $.OU per ton. These three articles
constitute what is necessary to make Acid Phos
phate. Put them together in the proper pro
portion and a ton of Acid Phosphate will cost
p.7 er ton more than it did last year.
Bags are costing us 20c. per ton more than
they did last year. so that the crude material
going into a ton of Acid Phosphate is costing
approximately $2.:7 more than it did a year ago.
Every piece of factory supplies and machin
ery. coal. and everything necessary to operate a
factorv. is from 25 to 100 per cent. higher than it
was a year ago. This will add certainly an ad
ditional 10e. to the cost of a ton of fertilizer.
making in the most conservative and reasonable
estimate possible a ton of 13 per cent. Acid
Phosphate. bagged and ready for shipment. cost
the manufacturer S:.37 more than it did twelve
Now let us look at complete ammoniated fer
tilizers: We will take what is commonly known
as standard grade of complete fertilizer. run
ning. say. *2 per cent. of ammonia. 8 per cent.
of available phosphoric acid. and I per cent. of
potash. As I have above demonstrated. acid
phosphate costs $.0r7 more than last year. This
is equivalent to a little more than 1te. per 100
pounds. In making the ;. S and I fertilizers.
i.-10 pounds of acid phosphate would e itneces
sarv. so at t0e. additional cost per ith pounds. the
additional cost for acid phophate would be
It catton seed meal was used for the ammonia.
it would take approximately 700 pounds. and
cotton seed meal is now worth A0.00 per ton more
than last year. which is equivalent to 30e. per
100 pounds. and 700 pounds would cost $f.IU more
than it did last year. Now add 20c. for extra
cost for the bags and you have $3.50 per ton more
for the materials than we paid for these same
materials last year.
If fankage or blood was used for the source of
ammonia instead of cotton seed meal. the ad
vanced cost over last year would be $3.L0 per
ton. as ammonia from tankage or blood is now
60e. per unit higher than last year. so for 2'. per
cent. of ammonia the extra cost over last year
would be $1.R0.
Sulphate of ammonia is the only other source
of ammonia commonly used in the manufacture
of fertilizers. Twelve months ago this article
was selling at about $43.00 per ton. We paid for
it this week $62.00 per ton.
Now I assert that the price of fertilizers has
not advanced nearly so much as the price of raw
materials going into them. Let us see who is to
blame. if any one, for the advance of these crude
materials. Take Pyrites: We buy from Spain
more than three-fourths of all we use. Nitrate
of Soda: We buy entirely from South America.
Potash Salts: We buy entirely from Germany.
So it can not be said that our company controls
or is in atny wise responsible for the advance of
these materials. as we have no interest what
ever in any of these properties. either directly
Take phosphate rock: We do mine a small
proportion of our wants of phosphate rock.
but we mine none for sale and we buy from
other mines more than two-thirds of what we
consume. So no one will suppose that we were
anxious to put up the price of phosphate rock.
As for cotton seed meal we have no interest
either directly or indirectly in any cotton seed
oil mill. so we are not responsible for the ad
vance in this article. Blood and tankage are
made by the large packers in the West. and we
have no interest and no control over these pro
ducts in any way.
Why. then. should the Vi-ginia-Carolina
Chemical Company be blamed for the advance
in the cost of crude materials, and would it be
business-like for us to want an advance in crude
materials, of which we have to buy almost en
tirely all of our needs and of which we produce
absolutely nothing. except a small quantity of
It is our aim and purpose to manufacture fer
tilizers as cheaply as possible and to sell them
at as low a price as we can afford, thereby stim
ulating a large consumption of fertilizers and
their genertl use for all crops.
Let us see how the farmer is situated: He is
getting this year from :Mto 3-. a pound for his
cotton more than last year. and we understand
that for a great deal of the cotton seed the cot
ton seed oil mills are now paying me. per bushel.
Are these advances wrong, and are the manu
facturers who are having to use this product
condemning the parties who produce them.
simply because the demand is stich that the
prie'has increased so enormously over last
year? At present prices the farmer cani sell the
cotton seed from one acre of land and btty as
much fertilizers as he usually puts over t wo or
three acres. even though there is a small ad
vance in the price of fertilizers, caused by the
manufacturers having to pay high prices for the
materials entering into them.
We propose to be perfectly fair and candid in
our statements and believe that when an un
prejudiced farmer looks into the situation he
will realize that he is not charged as much for
fertilizers as the cost of materials under present
