THE SUPPORTERS OF RAILROAD SUBSI
DIES OPPOSE SHIP SUBSIDIES.-WHY?
It is surprising to know how
many good citizens are under a
misapprehension about Senator
McLaurin's position on the policy
of subsidizing our merchant
marine, and how they have been
misled by the News and Couriei,
Columbia State and other news
papers that have taken iaposition
against McLaurin, and who may
be the employed advocates of the
railroad subsidy crowd.
There are two factions at work
in Congress, one is endeavoring
to get aid from the government
for the building of American
ships to carry our products to
foreign ports in competition with
the ships of foreign countries,
who give their ships aid. The
other. is and has been getting
aid from the government to help
certain railroads, Northern Pa
cific,Southern and others. These
railroads are making a desperate
fight to prevent the building of
American ships, because if these
ships are built it will reduce the
freight carriage of all Southern
raised products, that are now
being shipped across the conti
nent before they are put into the
the hole of a vessel bound for
foreign ports. A bale of cotton
shipped to China, instead of be
ing loaded on a vessel at Char
leston and taken direct to its
place of destination, it is taken
across the continent on the trains
of the Northern Pacific and load
ed on an English or German ves
sel at San Francisco. Thus
making the farmer pay this un
necessa-y expense of railroad
trackage when if we could put
the cotton on the vessel at Char
leston, the expense of putting it
into a Chinese port would be ac
tually-less than it takes now to
get it to San Francisco.
These railroads had a strong
lobby at Washington and they
subsidized many strong and in
fluential newspapers to fight the
ship subsidy bill. Senator Mc
Laurin is not in favor of what is
known as the Frye-Hanna bill
that was discussed in the last
Congress, because that bill was
not sufficiently guarded by pro
per business restrictions to pro
tect the people's interests, and
he so declared when discussing
the resolutions of the Southern
Cotton Spinners Association.
He said then that he could not
support that subsidy bill, but if
modified with proper restrictions
it would have his support, as he
believed that the placing of
American ships on our high seas
would redound to the benefit of
the Southern Cotton grower.
Senator McLaurin because of his
expressed intention to support a
bill which will encourage build
ing American - ships, has be
come marked for defeat by the
friends of that gang of railroad
subsidy robbers who have had
their bands into the public treas
ury for years, and who have been
supported in their raids on the
treasury by every Democratic
Representative from this State.
Senator Tillman has voted to
give subsidies to these same
railroads, and now he is in the
forefront in denouncing Mc
Laurin for intimating that ship
builders should have support
also. The terrific fight that is
being made against McLaurin
by the Columbia State and the
News and Courier formerly the
bitterest of Tillman's opponents,
and Tillman being lined up with
them in the fray, looks mightily
as if the railroad people had used
a mighty persuasive argument to
have proven that it was "damna
ble robbery" to vote a subsidy to
encourage the building of freight
haulers on water, and "sublime
statesmanship" to vote a subsidy
for freight haulers on land. We
will not pretend to charge that
the News and Courier, State and
Tillman have been bribed, but
we have no hesitency in believ
ing that something more than an
honest difference of opinion was
an influential factor in bringing
about such a complete conversion
of these two newspapers, that
not so long ago were the vilest
of slanderers, or they are now.
Senator McLaurin has not had
fair treatment from either of the
two mentioned papers, they will
print any and every contempti
ble fling that is made at him,
even when they k-now it is false,
they will not give him due credit
for what he does, and what he
says is either ignored or distort
ed, but notwithstanding all of
this, they are beginning to real
ize that McLaurin ~1s gaining
ground every day, and that the
aggregation of opponents they
have been able to get out, will
not be able to secure his defeat.
Then there is an impression
that McLaurin is endeavoring to
organize a white Republican
party in this State: this impres
sion was created to play on the
scare them with that old story
the "nigger in the wood pile.'
McLaurin has never had the
least idea of organizing a white
Republican party, and in every
declaration on this subject he
has said this plainly. Yet, his
opponents continue to hold ur
the tar baby and insist that he is
trying to republicanize th is
State. At Charlotte he plainly
said that if he could not make
his fight on Democratic lines he
would not make it at all; at
Greenville he said he wanted to
make his tight in the primary
and would abide it's decision.
He has never intimated anything
that could be construed intc
leading us into the Republicar
camp, but the politicians and
certain newspapers, one of which
was very friendly to the Re
publican party in days gone by,
and the- other was even worse,
because it bolted and made coali
tions with negroes to breab
down white supremacy, would
have the people believe that
they are sentinels on the watch
tower of Democracy and they
can sniff treason from afar.
Will the people trust these
newspapers who a short time
ago denounced Tillman as a thief,
liar, anarchist, infidel and every
approbious name that could be
conceived of, and this the News
and Courier and Columbia State
certainly did, when they now see
that what they said about the
man then, must have been false,
or they are attempting for some
hidden purpose, to deceive the
people now. What influence
brought about this change?
Had the injustice about to be
done the great railroads on the
Pacific anything to do with it?
Or was it because these enemies
of Tillman hope to destroy him
by giving him their support?
We have a reccollection of Till
man saying on one occassion,
that if ever the News and Couri
er came to his support, the peo
ple would then know that he had
fallen from grace and it would
be well for them to watch him.
Was this a prophcy?
Since the death of E. A. Webs
ter, who was the national com
mitteeman for the Republican
party in this State, there has
been some speculation as to whc
will be his successor. The news
papers in this State that are re
sorting to all manner of means to
prejudice Senator McLaurin's re
turn to the United States Senate
have begun to connect his name
with influencing the name of
Webster's successor. Col. Johr
G. Capers' name has been men
tioned, and there is a strong
liklihood of his appointment, but
McLaurin has no voice in this
matter, it is a matter entirely for
the Republicans, and as Colonel
Capers is a Republican and sc
recognized ever since 1896 we dc
not see why the opponents of
McLaurin should connect him
with his selection.
Capers was appointed district
Attorney as a Republican, and
endorsed for the position by the
most prominent of that party in
the United States Senate, Mc
Laurin and a number of other
Democrats gave him their en
dorsment also, because they pre
ferred him to other Republicans;
had their been any chance for a
Democrat to have received this
appointment, McLaurin and the
other Democrats would not have
endorsed such, but'the Republi
can party is in power and the
appointment was to go to one of
that party, there was not a choice
between a Republican and a
Democrat, but between Republi
cans only, therefore McLaurin
gave his endorsment to Capers,
because he is a Carolinian and
all of his interests are identified
with us. But in the selection of
an executive committeeman Mc
Laurin nor any other- Democrat
will be consulted and the coup
ling of McLaurin's name is a
ruse to deceive the people into
believing that McLaurin is or
ganizing a white republican par.
ty in this State, which they know~
is not true.
When it comes to matters of
holding offices in this State if
McLaurin can get a Democrat
appointed he will certaainly dc
so, but if it must be a'Republican
and he is consulted at all,then he
will endeavor to advise the ap
pointment of one who will not be
obnoxious to the people and one
in whom the people can have re

The importance of our people
holding corn cannot be toc
strongly impressed, because it is
a serious consideration. We have
gone to some trouble to ascer
tain the bread prospect for next
year and, all of the information
we can gather indicates a condi
tion of great scarcity all over the
country. The cereal crop of
Europe is very short, and the
demand for American cereals
will be great, therefore we may
look to see fiour at almost prohi
bitive prices, corn will also be
very high, so much so, that many
keen sighted business men who
anticipate a large demand for
this article, have commenced
making contracts for future de

pectation of making large profits

corn, hold it as if it were so

but if you value your interests

Editor The Manning Times:
Mr. Editor, your comments on the
cotton and tobacco market meets the
hearty approval of all right thinking
men, not only farmers, but all condi
tions of men except certain merchants
and tobacco workers men. Idon't know
why it should be so, can't see any good
reason for it, but ever since Noah come
out of the Ark with Sham, Ham and
Japath, yes, ever since the days of
Adam, when he told Cain'and Able
they was men now, aui must begin to
scritch for themselves, the farmer has
had to bear some burdens what other
people ought to had helped to bear.
Every man or set of men have got their
loads to carry and among so many peo
ple all a goin in the same direction,
its so easy and so natural for some to
get up and ride and make the balance
pull the load, even horses is that way,
and people ain't no exception. I can't
see the reason or sense in a merchant,
either doing or saying anything that
would throw a feather's weight in the
way of his old stand-by, his very back
bone, the farmer. There is some kind
of an arrangement between the mer
chants of Manning and the cotton buy
er there, to pull just a few cents and
may be a few dollars more out of the
farmer than he ought to. Will some
body please step up and say what good
or wherein comes the good of a pub
lic cotton buyer at Manning, except to
the merchant? We can't and don't
blame the cotton buyer for buying as
cheap as possible, but if the merchants
of Manning aint standing in their own
light to let the buyer pull the wool over
their eyes, as he is doing, then you can
have my old hat.
Why dont the buyer go to a mar's
wagon and buy his cotton like a man?
Why does he wait until night or
some other convenient time and buy
from the merchant instead?
In whose interest is he working, the
farmer or the merchant? Maby some
body can answer. I tell you this here
middle man business won't do. The
merchants are profiting some by it now
but take care merchants you don't
some of these days, regret what you
are now doing, for the sake of a few
dollars. The farmer is a long sufferin'
critter' generally, but I tell you when
you do get the dander of the wool hat
brigade rightously aroused, they may
not be as easy to manage as they might
be. Wont one, or all the merchants in
Manning please come out in the MAN
NING TIMES and tell us one gallus fel
lers, who is so hard to understand any
thing, why it is they aint willing to
give us farmers every cent our cotton
is worth! We aint all fools! We know
what you're a doin'! Sometime before

Crossed Over the River.
On Sept. 9, 1901, the Angel of death
came to the home of Mr. and Mrs.
B. D. Griffin and took little Eva, age
14 years, to himself. She was a bright
and beautiful child and stayed just long
enouo'h to show how sweet a flower in
Paraise would bloom. It was sad -to
fold those little hands upon her little
breast that was cold in death and to
know that we would see little Eva no
more on earth. But we have the full
assurance that we will meet her again
in heaven and when I stood and looked
at her little cold face, so composed and
serene in death, I could not but feel
thankful that the little sufferer was at
rest. All was done for her relief that
faithful hands, prompted by loving
hearts could do.
She was truly a heroic little sufferer,
but she' never uttered a word of com
plaint, w. s perfectly resigned to the
will of the Lord. Just before she died,
she called the family to her bed-side
and bid them each good-bye and told
them to meet her in heaven.
Dearest Eva thou hast left us:
Here thy loss we deeply feel.
But 'tis God that hast bereft us:
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee:
When the day of life is fled:
Then in heaven with joy to greet thee,
Where no farewell tear is shed.

How Pepper Is Prepared.
The pepper plant is propag-.ted by
cuttings, comes into bearing three or
four years after it Is set and yields
two crops annually for about 12 years.
When a few of the berries change
from green to red, all of them are gath
ered, because if they were allowed to
ripen any longer they would be less
pungent. To fit them for market they
are dried, separated by rubbing with
the hands and cleaned by winnowing.
The black pepper of commerce consists
of the berries thus prepared.
