TEE LOCAL LABOR PROBLEM.
We understand that farmers
throughout the county are hav
ing considerable diticulty in ob
taining farm hands for the pres
ent year. and we are also in
formed that not only does this
co-n dition prevail in Clarendon,
but that the same trouble is ex
pe ijenced throughout many
other counties. This only pre
sents a phase of the great labor
question which is destined to be
one of the great problems that
the ieople of the South will some
dvr have to settle. When it
c :nes to analyzing this farm la
bo.: trouble it is not so hard to
discern the prime causes of the
evil, but as to suggesting a rem

ment, this invo v'-s many knotty
The prices of cotton which
have prevailed the past two
years, have been exceedingly
favorable to the cotton producer.
Making the staple at the prices
which were obtained for the crop
of 1900, considering our present
experience in producing it--while
it cannot be termed a lucrative
employment, yet can at least be
classed as an avocation which
gives more than fair returns for
the energies employed, and it be
i an occupation in which any
one can engage with some hope
of success, we find everybody
rushing to the industry of mak
in! cotto)I. The consequence is
that many persons who( should
be mere laborers and working
under the direction of some ex
perienced farmer, are trving to
farm on their own hook, and are
clearing up the very face of the
earth. G o where you will

will seie that almost every small
lhill hy the side of the road, if it
has not a house already upon it,
is under pr-eparation for one to be

who owns the land, not satistied
with having just enough of his
land cleared upon which to sup
port himself, bringing that to a
high state of cultivation and let
ting the remainder lie out for the
nroduc-tion .of natural growth,
will give tihree years' use of his
land :imply to get it cleared, and
the anxious Afr-o- American is
there ready and eager. The dar

of cotton and the horse as se
curity. Upon the commonly ac
cepted rule that every- man wants
to g-et all he can on a bargain, it
seems a hard matter to tell who
is at fault. The farmer thinks
he is perfetly justifiable in al
lowing all his land cleared up,
thereby creating in the mind of
his tenant the desire for a horse
with which to make cotton, and
the merchant or horse dealer
thinks lie is just as excusable for
selline the fiftv-dollar horse for
seventy-live dolhars and taking
uventy-tive dollars of it c-ash, be
cause he takes a great risk. The
result is that the man who ought
to be a laborer is making cotton

(Clutmbia. S. C.. Jan. 2S. 1901.
The past week has been an exceed
inliy busy one. a tremendous influx of
n.'asures have been introduced and the
calendars of both hou!es are still weight
ed down, so much so, that I doubt very
much if we are able to wind up before
the 15th. of February.
The elections are now a thing of the
past and the one in which our people
were muost interested resuni ed as they
would have it. in the choice of Miss
I ueale Barron for the position of
1tate L ' ibraan. by a decisive majority,
and one which was indeed flattering to
hr, Mliss Barron went through the
e\citing contest with that womhnlv
dignity so characteristic of her, and her
de')ortucnt was the subject of much
favorable commrient. The position is an
important one. and I fE ' sure she will
conutict this departmen to the satis
faction of her friends and the public
generally. When the announement
was ma'le that she came out. victorious,
she and I became the recipient of many
warm and appreciative coniratulations.
Her predecessor's commission expired
on the 24th inst, but Miss Barron pre

A bill known as the M1eMaster bill, to
extend the liability for damages incur
red by reason of the negligence of co
employees of corporations, to other cor
porations as well as railroad companies,
ws advocated by Dr. Woods. Mr.
G:uiuchat nipped the passage of a bill
about to be passed in the bud, by point
ing out that it was in conflict with the
constitution because it was discriminat
in. The bill related to the commuta
tion tax, providing for the tax of adults
of from 1$ to 55 in several counties and
of 18 to 50 in others. It keeps one on
the constant watch to prevent unconsti
tutional measures slipping through and
Mr. Galluchat is giving much of his at
tention to this line.
In accordance with a petition sent to
the delegation from citizens of the Pa
nola section Mr. Galluchat introduced
a bill providing that agricultural con
tracts expire with the Calendar year in
which they were executed, the same
was reported unfaorably by the com
mittee. and after some ,cussion was
buried among the legislative dead.

defeated, because I feel that it is an un
necessary assumption of power, little
short of tyranny. I further believe
that it will do more good to the wagon

ator Manning is a conscientious advo

a mieasure is in the interest of better
roads and eeout:ny, and he is pushing
it with what he belic'.es to be a high
purpose. I, on the other hand, regard
the measure as oppressive and should
not be forced upon a people against
their will. There is no law hindering
the use of wide tires by those who want

These gentlemen come to Columbia to
protest against the railroad companies
imposing discriminating rates on cotton
seed, meal and hulls. The roads want

which would have played into the hands
of the large mills and was calculated to
cripple all of the small ones. The rail

definite action was taken further than,
that the oil mill men were assured that
if the rates were raised on short hauls,
a proportionate raise would be made on
long hauls, that no discrimination would

Hon. Charles M. Davis was among
the number of mill men, and while here
he met many of his old associates who
were glad to see him. Mr. Davis tells
me that his mill is having an output of
nice goods and that he has not had a
single compllaint at his mill, about qual
ity of goods, weights in the purchase of
seed, and the selling of meal or hulls,
so prevalent at similar institutions. Hec
sys that he makes it a rule to permit
the closest scrutiny and examinations
and if any patron should find cause for
complaint he wants such to make it
known to him immediately, in order
that he might investigate the same.

The question of regulating
child labor in factories is per
haps the most important meas
ure that will come before the
Legislature this session. To
our mind this is a vital and burn
ing question, and demands at
tention at the hands of our law
makers. It has come to be a
crying evil in the up country,
and if something is not done the
lawmakers may rest assured they
will be held accountable for not
placing reasonble restrictions to
the oppression and dwarfing of
young lives by factory owners.
The bill appropriating fifty
thousand dollars for a creditable

on record as being progressit'e
and liberal minded, and desirous
for the growth and general up
building of the State. Fifty
thousand dollars, if divided
among the taxpayers of the
State, would scarcely be a post

be hard to calculate the good re

State as following suchi an in

Mrs. Graham was married, converted
and joined the Methodist church ten
years ago in which she has been a con

the hearts of any orphan children that
