MANNING'S TOBACCO MARKET - THE
PEOPLE'S WAREHOUSE HAS ITS FOR
MAL OPENING W I T H M U S I C,
SPEECHES AND GOOD CHEER,
AND ABOUT 50,000 LBS.
It is manifest from present in
dications that the People's
Warehouse Company intend to
inject a renewed life into a lan
guishing tobacco market. Mes
srs. W. E. Jenkinson, F. P.
Ervin, H. M. McIntosh, R. D.
Clark, with Mr. C. M. Mason as
Auctioneer, are all young, vig
orous, 'and successful business
men, they are not hampered
with old fogey ideas, and they
are closely identified with our
business interests. These gen
tlemen realize that the tobacco
industry bids fair to become a
large trade-maker and they also
realize the necessity of inducing
it here to add to the prosperity
of this town and county. The
market heretofore was not satis
factory to the growers, and as a
result, thousands of pounds of
tobacco which should have been
brought here was taken to other
markets, and Manning lost the
sale of goods which naturally
follows the outlay of money. It
is proposed by the management
of the People's warehouse to
remedy this and to begin with,
Mr. Clark the manager, went in
person to induce the largest
tobacco buying concerns to send
representatives here, and as a
result of his efforts the two
greatest competing companies
in the world are now represent
ed on his floors; besides, there
are a number of other buyers
with a close watch from Mr.
Clark to see that the farmer
gets full market value for his
product. The sole idea and sin
gle purpose is to make Ma-nning
a first class market and a trade

Bryan, and the Imperial has
Dr. J~ohn James, both are on this
market to buy and they have no
other interest than to buy as
much as possible for their re
spective companies. These gen
tlemen have no interest in pay
ing one man in a community a
fancy price to make a decoy for
others to be fleeced; they had as
soon give the price to one as to
another. The American and
the Imperial are competing com
panies, both buying the same
class of tobacco and the concern
bidding the most buys.
The People's had their formal
opening last Wednesday evening
with one of the greatest social
events ever had in Manming. The
estimate is that about one thous
and men, women and children
were upon the floor, and the
scene was one of animation.
Town and country mingling in
happy social communion, Clar
endon greeting those from sis
ter counties, music discoursed by
the second regiment band of
Sumter, the building was hand
somely decorated; farmers, mer
chants, lawyers, doctors, preach
ers, mechanics, everybody, even
candidates were present to make
the occasion a joyous one.
The sides of the building, the
gang-way, and the lot, were all
filled with wagons heavily laden
ed with tobacco, and in the cen
ter the lady friends of the com
pany, with the aid of Messrs. A.
H. Breedin, 0. E. Webber, I. I.
Appelt, L. R. McIntosh and
others, had tables erected and
groaning with Brunswick stew,
chicken, ham, rice, bread, cakes,
coffee, and lemonade by the bar
rels. About 10 o'clock, Mr. F.
P. Ervin who acted as master of
ceremonies mounted a rostrum,
rapped for order and then said:
Tobacco growers of Clarendon
and sister counties:
Gentlemen-We extend to you
the greeting of the business men
of Manning. Those of you who
live in Clarendon should feel at
home here in the county seat of
your own county, among people
whose interests are identical with
your own: And we wish for
those who have come from ad
joining counties to feel equally
so. I now take pleasure in pre
senting to you our esteemed fel
low townsman Hon. Louis Appelt
who will address to you words of
Mr. Appelt extended the
greetings of the company and
after briefly stating the object
of the gathering and the pur
poses of the company, he made
an appeal to the tobacco growers
to lend their encouragement toj
this renewed effort to build up a
home market, and in behalf of the
management he extended a cor

the little fellows disturbed his

eas the duty of our farmers, all
things being equal, to give Man
ing's market the preference: he
wvanted the people of Clarendon
espcia. to encourage to noble

)f Manning, he pledged himself
:o use his influence towards try
.ng to build up the market of
>ur county seat. He claimed
that as a matter of right, if we
,an get as much for tobacco in
Nfanning as elsewhere, it is our
luty to bring it here. "He that
Toes not provide for his own is
worse than an infidel" and from
his personal knowledge of the
men in charge of this warehouse
he believes a new era has set in
and that Manning will have a
market second to none.
Hon. J. WV. Kennedy was the
last speaker, but on account of
the lateness of the hour, and the
supper in waiting his speech was
a brief history of Manning. He
alluded to the early history of
the town, and made an appeal
for the farmers and merchants
o pull together in this noble
affort to put the county seat in
the progressive procession.
As soon as the speaking was
:ver, Mr. C. M. Mason with his
megaphone voice, invited the as
sembly to supper, which was
served by a committee consist
ing of Mesdames W. Scott and
C. R. Harvin, M. E. Burgess,
D. C. Scarboro, Misses Mayme,
Eattie and Lillian Harvin, Mel
lie Nelson, Beulah Breedin,
Blanche Wells, Hermion Jenkin
son, Hattie and Ada Bagnal,
Carrie Legg, Janie and Olivia
ngram, Margie Appelt and
Katie Plowden, assisted by
Messrs. A. H. Breedin, 0. E.
Webber. I. I. Appelt and Luther
R. McIntosh. In a few minutes
he tables were surrounded and
the feasting began while the
band discoursed the sweetest of
music. The food was delight
ully prepared, and Mr. Webber
leserves a medal.
It is estimated that about 800
people ate supper, and if any
ody was over-looked it was
hei~r own fault as the committee
was untiring in their efforts to
see to it that everybody was pro
vided for. At the back end of
the floor, the colored growers
were looked after by R. A.
Stewart, and they too seemed to
?njoy the festive occasion.
The young ladies and gentle
men took advantage of the music
to indulge in dancing, and many
oupes were soon whirling about
n the "two-step" and waltz,
even the little girls caught the
mania and they too were em
braced in each others arms keep
ng time to the fascinating mus
ic; our search-eye did not fail to
aatch several church sisters,
swaying to and fro in their
bairs, and beating time with
their feet. as if under a hallelujah
spell, as they listened to the
music and watched the dancing
couples; it would not be sur
prisirg to us if we were told that
the preachers present were also
inclined to throw in a few -shuf
tes. and might have dohe so
when they got out of view.
It was a delightful occasion, a
rand success, both, from a busi
ness and social stand-point. It
afforded an opportunity to bring
into elbow touch the people of
the county whose support we
must have, or languish, and it
showed to them that we are
anxious to aid them in fostering
their interests. Every expres
sion we heard was full of earnest
appreciation, and a willingness
to join with our merchants to
build up an unexcelled market
at Manning. When we left the
warehouse, about 2 o'clock in
the morning the wagons were
still arriving, and the jollification
had not ceased.
Thursday was the "break.'
Buyers from Florence, Darling
ton', Timmonsville, Lake City
Mayesville, besides the perma
nent men were here and eagem
for the fray. The huge piles of
the ellow weed, was indeed ar
insp~iration, and the growers with
their wives and daughters, to
ether with many ladies of the
town as interested spectators
were on hand. In response tc
an inquiry from us Mr. Jenkin
son informed the writer. there
was about 50,000 pounds of to
bacco on the floor and he seemed
very much pleased with the turn
out. The sale began promptly
at 11 o'clock, the bidding was
ively and at times quite spirit
ed. Mr. C. M. Mason did the
crying and he seemed to workT
ha'rd to get as much as possible
out of the buyers. After the
sale was over, we made it our
businesss to go among the peo
ple who sold and they were all
well pleased with the prices.
Only one man complained, not
that his tobacco was worth more.
but he thought it was better than
a pile he saw, which did bring
more, and he accounts for his
falling of by having a small pile.
It is remarkable that with so
much tobacco to handle there
was such a unanimous expre s
sion of satisfaction in price.3,
that our tobacco farmers will
bring their tobacco to Manning
and we believe the People's
warehouse will use everything
in their power to make every
patron feel that Manning is his
Messrs. Jenkinson and Ervin
assure us that they are not seek
ing to make a profit out of the
tobacco, that are anxious to bring
the tobacco here for the pur
pose of getting the trade, and in
this they are being encouraged
by the rest of the business men
in this town who have no per
sonal interest in tobacco.

The gentlemen interested in the
People's warehouse believe that
by inducing the farmers to bring
their products to Manning,
everybody will be benefit ted,
but to do so there must not be
any lagging behind, everybody
must put their shoulders to the

FARMERS, IS THIS A SUGAR-COATED
Hon. C. M. Davis has a com
munication in these columns
which we wish our readers to
carefully consider. There are
statements made therein which
to our mind will make it plain to
any school boy to reach a con
clusion. We publish his commu
nication without charge and with
a degree of pleasure.
Our readers will remember
that in several issues of our pa
per we editorially had something
to say about cotton seed oil mills
combining. What we have said
about this matter remains un
changed; we still contend that
these institutions are in a combi
nation with a general manager
who resides in Darlington and
who was here yesterday. Our
information is that the cotton oil
mills in this combination under
the management of Mr. R. L.
Dargan, are located at the fol
lowing places: Marion, Darling
ton, Wadesboro, N. C., Manning,
Davis and Cheraw.
We are also informed that as a
result of this combination, in
stead of each of these mills hav
ing competing agents to buy
seed at the various depots, the
seed will be bought by one agent
and he will ship to the nearest
oil mill. We have never heard
of any report of gins being
bought up or leased by any of
these mills, but we have also
never heard any response to the
proposition that the oil mill com
bination will sign an agree
ment to gin cotton at 81 per bale
and furnish bagging and ties for
a period of five years.
That the oil mill Mr. Davis is
president of is composed largely
of farmers we have no doubt is
true. There are farmers and
farmers; for instance Mr. Davis
is a farmer, nevertheless he is
largely interested in three cor
porations, Davis Lumber Com
pany, Avant Mercantile Com
pany, Farmers' Oil Mill Com
pany, president. we believ e, of
all three corporations, yet he is
a farmer. We also think that
one of the stockholders in his
mill is a neighboring merchant,
he, too farms, and is one of the
largest merchants in the county:
he also can be classed as a farm
er. Then if the list of stock
holders were made public it will
be seen there are others who
also either farm themselves or
rent out, even some who hold of
fice, and perhaps relatives who
ive abroad are interested in
farms and who are among the
stockholders. It would not sur
prise us to learn that Mr. R. L.
Dargan of Darlington, the gen
eral manager of the combination,
also has a block of stock. There
is nothing criminal or wrong in
people taking stock in oil or
other mills; it is legitimate busi
ness, as much as being a mer
chant, selling goods on liens at
1902 prices. There is no com
plaint of the corporation, com
bining to crush competition is
what hurts. No complaint can
be lodged against a man who,
by his thrift and financiering can
manage to become president of
three corporations in one small
Personally Mr. Davis is a very
clever gentleman, and it is to his
credit that he has amassed a
fortune in a few years, and that
by his expansive ideas he con
tinues to pile up the wealth. It
would be a source of great grat
ification if the people living in
the territory where Mr. Davis'
thrift has been so successful,
were also rolling in wealth or
even independent. In that sec
tion there are as good farmers,
with as much energy and as good
land as anywhere. Are they in
dependent? Are their homes un
der mortgage? Consult the rec
ords. Do these farmers living
near where this Klondike exists,
work? Then why have they to
mortgage their lands, their
crops, their stock to procure
credit? Why don't they secure
an Aladdin's lamp? These are
pertinent questions which tend
merely to remind people that
there must be " hewers of wood
and drawers of water," and un

CARD FROM HON. C. M. DAVIS.
Not a Trust, bat an "Association."
Davis Station, S. C., July 26, 1902.
To the People of Clarendon County:
I understand from friends there are
a number of false rumors being circu
lated in reference to me and I take this
method of reaching the people in order
to set aright these false reports.
From what I can learn these reports
run something like this: That I had
either rented or bought all the cotton
gins in this section of country and
would force the farmers to gin with and
sell their cotton seed to the Farmers'
Cotton Oil Company. I denounce this
as being false in toto, except that I did
rent on last January from Hon. T. B.
Owen his ginnery outfit at Silver, S. C.,
and expect to operate it as has been the
custom at that place heretofore.
Another report is to the effect that I
belong to a cotton seed oil trust. I de
nounce this as being untrue, and will
now make a statement so that the pub
lic will understand the situation. There
are seven independent cotton seed oil
mills in the eastern section of South
Carolina and so far as I know each one
of these independent mills are operated
independently of the other and under
the management of the local directors,
president and manager. These seven
mills have formed an association among
themselves-not a trust, but for the
purpose of buying our mill supplies in
bulk and selling our products in the
foreign markets as a competition of the
American and Southern Cottcn Oil
Companies. Heretofore we have had
to sell our oil to our competitor and
hence you see the necessity of this as
sociation for our own protection. With
out something of this kind all the inde
pendent mills would be absorbed by the
big mills and then the seed would be
bought here without competition and
at a much cheaper price than under the
You certainly know the merchants
have their associations, the newspaper
men have their associations, the labor
ers, the doctors, and in fact nearly
every calling has its association except
the farmer, and God knowsohe should
have it, as this is the only way in which
he can fight the great trusts success
Now, I dislike very much to parade
private atTairs to the public, but in or
der that the people may understand the
situation I will have to do so. You will
no doubt remember that some time
back there were certain corporations
that were buying up the independent
cotton seed oil mills and did succeed in
buving a good number of them. The
Farmers' Cotton Oil Company of this
place had offers for its mill and I as its
president refused to entertain any of
fers. You can readily see that if the
independent mills had have all fallen
into the hands of one corporation there
would have been no competition for the
seed and its products.
I want to say further that most of the
stockholders i'n the oil mill at this place
are farmers, and when subscriptions
were solicited to stock in this company
I as the promoter did my very best to
get all the farmers in this section to
take stock and did succeed fairly well
in this, as I was anxious to make it
what it is-strictly a home industry -
and I feel proud of it, and believe if
this home enterprise had more encour
agement over the lower country it
would not be long before we could shut
out trusts to a considerable extent.
Now, in conclusion I wish to say that
I was born and raised on the far m. My
ancestors were farmers and when I was
9 years of age I hoed my half acre in
the field and at 11 years of age I was a
plowman for my father and continued
this until I was 21 years of age, with
just a little "old field"' schooling mixed
along with it. Since that time I have
been doing business for myself. and by
hard work, perseverance and economy.
and with the blessings of the Almighty
upon me, I have been somewhat suc
cessful in business enterprises, and am
now nearly 54 years of age and at this
late day in life if I should lose self
respect and patriotism for my native
land and fellowman whose ancestors
fought with my people to make this a
free country-that I should go into mo
nopolies and trusts as rumors would
have me do, I would be deserving of~
repudiation in every sense of the word.
not only by the masses of the people,
but by mnv'own blood and kin. I would
not appear in print were it not that
some of the people in the county do not
know me personally, and to all such I
ask you to make a thorough investiga
tion 'before you believe these reports.
There are a gcodl number of gentlemen
living in this section of the county
where I live who have known nie all
mv life and Iask you to inquire of
th'em as to my character and veracity.'
I now ask to beg your oardon for hav
ing to appear in the public prints.

MOST POPULAR FOOD STUFF FOR
Pointers That Are of Vital interest to the
Up-to-date Farmer. Money in Dairying.
What has cotton to do with dairy
ing? Cotton seed products have be
come the most popular food stuff for
cattle, because of the low price and
the most excellent results. They are
the natural cattle feed for the cotton
region, on account of saving in freight
and the easy and convenient access.
Strange to say, the value of these pro
ducts was not first discovered in their
native home. It remained for German
scientists to point out their great
value. German agriculturists are al
ways standing ready to make use of
the discoveries of science, and so they
imported vast quantities of cotton seed
meal from this country and used it for
cattle feed in their dairies years before
our own people woke up to the great
possibilities in cotton seed meal as a
feed stuff. But it is now very well
known that cotton seed meal, in con
nection with cotton seed hulls, make
the most valuable cattle foods that are
available, especially that offered by
the Southern Cotton Oil company of
the Carolinas and Georgia, at any of
their mills or at their headquarters at
Columbia, S. C., Savannah, Ga., At
lanta, Ga., or Raleigh, N. C.
There is one fact in connection with
cattle feeding on cotton seed products
that is not generally given the prom
inence that its importance demands.
This is the value of the manure.
Most exhaustive experiments have
been made, both in this country and in
Europe, with a view to finding the
relation between the feed and the re
sulting excrement from cattle. A
most important and far-reaching con
clusion has been reached, and it is
one which does not admit of any
doubt. This is that practically all of
the nitrogen that is fed to cattle re
appears in the excrement: about half
in the solid and half in the liquid.
Nitrogen is the most expensive ingre
dient in all food stuffs, and in all fer
tilizers. Hence this,-;discovery is a
most important one" 'leading to the
astounding fact that the present com
mercial value of cotton seed meal as a
feed stuff is but half its real value,
when properly understood. It means
that the full value of the nitrogen in
the meal may be utilized in feeding,
and then, if sufficient care be taken to
save solid and liquid manure the whole
of the nitrogen may be collected and
used again as a manure. There is a
further value in this, in that the form
of the nitrogen in this manure, taken
with the other elements, chemical and
mechanical, makes the manure a bet
ter fertilizer than the original meal.
The general statement that practi
cally all of the nitrogen fed to cattle
reappears in the excrement might lead
to the conclusion (which would be
easily self-contradictory) that nitrogen
feeds are of no value to cattle, and that
it is in no way assimilated or made use
of by the animal economy. Nothing is
more firmly established than that nitro
genous feeds are most important, in
producing both beef and butter; but it
is not yet well understood how the an
imal uses the nitrogen and then ex
cretes it. It may be that the nitrogen
from the air is utilized, or it may be
that through some transformation in
the system the nitrogen does its work,
and is then rejected.
There is a perfect analogy in the use
of nitrogen in making sulphuric acid.
It is necessary to supply a certain
amount of nitrogen to make the process
operative, and yet all of this nitrogen is
either recovered or lost, none of it
actually being retained in the sulphuric
The cotton plant requires a large
amount of nitrogen, and this may be
supplied with the manure from dairy
cattle, which themselves feed on cotton
products, and in the interim, turn out.
large amounts of valuable milk cream
and butter. Then dairying o. tLe cot

There are now many cotton seed oil
mills of the Southern Cotton Oil Co. so
idely scattered that it is easy for any
otton farmer to trade his cotton seed
c~ meal and hulls. and thus provide
imself with valuable feed stuffs for
dairy or beef cattle, and incidentally
rocure the very best fertilizer that is
~nown-the manure from cattle main

TO THE VOTERS OF CLARENDON COUN
ty:-Some time ago I announced in THE
MAxING TLMES that I would not be a candi
date for any office in the coming election, and
until very recently I had fully intended to pur
sue this course. but recent developments with
personal appeals and petitions (unsolicited on
my part) forces me to reconsider. and I now an
nounce myself a candidate for State Senator
from this county. subject to all the rules gov
erning the Democratic primary and the general
election and will abide the result.
C. M. DAVIS.
TO THE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS: I AM A
candidate for re-election to the State Sen
ate, upon the platform, constitution and rules
of the Democratic party. I have served in that
honorable position one term and feel that I have
given the people a conscientious service.
I am opposed to- rings, cliques and combina
tions, and if re-elected will use my best efforts
to resist the encroachments of monopolies that
are fast making themselves manifest by the
combination of corporations. I favor a still fur
ther reduction in our taxes and believe I have a
plan by which Clarendon county can get her
needed improvements without an increase of
the present tax rate.
TO THE WHITE PEOPLE OF CLAREN
don: On my worth as a private citizen and
record as a public functionary, to both of which
I invite the closest scrutiny of all honest men,
I announce my candidacy for the State Senate.
Our people are wofully misrepresented therein,
and I propose to show it. I believe none of my
competitors are more deserving of promotion
than myself. Some of the very men who aided
in bankrupting the county twice within the last
ten years. so that even now she is too poor to
build a decent jail, to say nothing of other im
provements. have their daggers drawn to repeat
the stab. It is my duty to make this race: both
our county papers are unfriendly towards me
and from the stump alone can I reach your ear.
Turn out and hear those face to face who would
make the laws to govern you; it will "advant
age more than do you harm."
