Our comments on the tobacco and
cotton market of this place has met 2(
with such a warm approva., that we
feel encouraged in the hope -:hat good t
will result to, both merchant and farm
er. On last Saturday we had a talk
with a group of substantial farmers,
and they were especially warm in their
commendations of the articles which w
have recently appeared in the TIMES.
and one of them who knows the, people to
well said, that he was "glad that the c
attention of Manning's business men
had been called to a very serious con- se
dition, and that it was now their duty : G
to take the matter in hand, not with~s
a namby-pamby pretense, but with a
stubborn determination to rake Man- R
ning the equal of any market." This
gentleman went on and said "th t if
Mlanning's merchants continued to
shut their eyes to their own interests, If
the farmers of the county would, as a no
matter of self-preservation, be forced to th
go elsewhere, and use their influence ti(
with the renter: to do likewise." a
We cannot for the life of us, see the Lc
business sense in our merchants per
mitting a condition to remain which
they know is injurious to them. Are w
they satisfied with the trade that is of
compelled to come here? If so, they m
need not care whether the farmer has cc
as opportunity to sell his produce in a lv
market that is satisfactory to him or ar
not, but if they want to hold their cc
trade and build up more, they must la
make active war on all things which ca
have a tendency to create dissatisfac- wi
tion, or causes which drive cotton and do
tobacco to other markets. J.
It is a self evident fact that cotton or bi
tobacco buyers are in the market for ha
profit and not for sentiment, and the m
cheaper they can buy the products the in
more the profit for them, therefore di
they will not pay anymore than condi- LE
tions force, and if there is nothing here d<
to force them to pay the farmer full ar
value, they will pay as little as possible w:
that their profits will accumulate fast- m
er, but the question is, can our busi
ness men afford to permit the market
monopolized? The buyer is not to
blame for having a one-sided monopoly,
and he will hold it as long as people a
will give him profitable encouragement. p
If the business men are so dull and in
different to their interests as to allow
a condition to exist that is driving
trade from their doors. then they need
not be surprised nor feel hurt if the far- te
mers use their influence against them. M
It would be very damaging to our
business interests, if our land owners
were to urge the renters to sell their
products in some other market, the ef
fect would be disastrous. It would ae
mean the loss of thousands of dollars i
in trade, and also thousands of dollars so
of accounts. Do not permit, even an wi
excuse for such a condition, merchants -1
of Manning get together and with a Iie
sincere ana a determined effort strike en
down any and every barrier to trade. ea
We well remember years ago when
this town was not much more than a
cross roads, and at that time the idea
prevailed with the business element.
the fewer the stores the more profits Cl
to the store keepers, and they did every pl
thing to discourage anything like com- th:
petition, but that foolish idea has been to
exploded long ago, and experience has
proven that competition makes trade,
the more competition the more trade.
People do not seek a dead market, they
want one that is alive, quick, energetic,
and up-to-date. A dead market is the
product of a monopoly, a curse to the
town and a blight to it's prosperity. 8
It is a part of our mission to help build 1C
up this town, and we propose hammer
ing away at our merchants, until they re
arouse themselves to their own and the dt
people's interests. They must go to
work and drive selfishness, greed and -.i
avarice to the wall, they must show by '4
their acts that they are deserving of
the results of the people's toil, they S~
must see that the producer gets all to
that he is entitled to, and then they
must see to it that one dollar of Uncle fe
Sam's money dug Out of the ground hC
and washed in the sweat of the toiler
will fetch one hundred cents in value.
This can be done, this will be done,
this shall be done, is the motto that
should inspire our merchants, and that
inspiration will be the oiling of our
mai-ket's gate hinges that they will
swing open without creaking. Such is
an inspiration will be received with
joy by Clarendon's farmers who want
to build up their natural market, Man

Manning, S. C., Sept. 10, 1901.
We have just returned from the Northern markets where Miss
Coppedge and I have spent several weeks in the large cities selec
ting our Fall and Winter Stock of Dry Goods, Fine Dress Goods,
Millinery Goods, Dress Trimmings, Ladies' and Children's Cloaks
and Fancy Goods and to say that we performed our duty well can
only be proven by calling and looking over the beautiful line of
goods we have to show our friends and patrons.
We doubt very much if there ever was such a line of Fine
Dress Goods and Silks ever shown in Manning as we are showing
this season, for we took the trouble to visit all the great retail
stores in New York and Baltimore to see what was the latest
styles in everything that pertains to Ladies' Dress Goods before
we started to buy our stock and the result was, we had styles
down on the tips of our fingers, consequently we were prepared to
buy only the latest and best of everything.
Our Dress Godds stock contains the latest of everything
SATIN SALIELS, DROP DE ALMAS, VENETIANS, PIN
HEADS, SHARK SKINS, BROAD CLOTHS and many other
things too numerous to mention.
Our line of Skirt Goods is something that has never been seen
in Manning before, both in low prices and latest styles. Ladies,
you will say we have not exaggei'ated when you see this beautiful
line of Skirting.
As usual our Millinery Department will be up-to-date in every
respect. Our Miss Coppedge has entire control of this depart
ment and she intends to make the Millinery opening and display
of Pattern Hats this fall one of the grandest the ladies of these
parts have seen in this town.
As we are now about to enter upon another busy season we
desire to thank our many friends and patrons for the splendid pat
ronage they have always given us and we trust that the splendid
line of goods we carry and our conduct and straightforward deal
ings may merit a continued share of their patronage.
Yours for ousmness,
W. E. JENKINSON.
OUR BIG OPENING EDGLE
Scores of our New Goods are now in our building and this
season finds us with a better line of Fine Dry Goods and we are
offering closer prices than ever and you know what we have done
in the past.
We will not attempt to enumerate a great many prices for
9 you will have to see the goods any way to compare them. When
you come we will gladly name prices and take great pleasure in
showing you everything in our store and be assured of one thing,
we will make as cheap and in most cases (goods compared) make $
lower figures than at other places.
Look over these names and see if you would not want to see
some of them.

D. J. CHANDLER,
SUMTER, S. C.
May not meet with a unanimous approval, but there are none who disap
prove of Commercial expansion at home.
The LEVI BROTHERS of Sumter, in order to neet the demands of
our growing and expanding business, were forced to seek more commodious
quarters. Accordingly we contracted for and leased the old J. T. Solomon
store next to the court house, and after an expenditure of considerable
money we have now one of the handsomest and best equipped stores in the
city, to which we extend a most cordial invitation to the readers of THE -
TIMES, and in this connection we desire to express our gratitude to the
people for the patronage and the manifestations of confidence reposed in us.
The Sumter cotton market is one of the best in the State and we
reckon ourselves among the heaviest buyers; this we could not do if we did
not pay full market price, and having the very best facilities for handling=
cotton we can guarantee prices to those favoring us with their patronage.
