A THOUGHT FOR THE NEW YEAR.
The greatest necessity just
now for the future developrnent
of Manning is additional railroad
facilities, and we believe, with a
little intelligent foresight on the
part of our business men, an
other railroad could be induced
to come here. The Southern's
nearest point to this town is
Luevi's, a station in the county of
Sumter near where the old Man
chester depot used to be, a dis
tance by an air line would not be
over twenty miles from here. If
our business men would get in
touch with the Southern, and
give that corporation encourage
ment, we think it would help us
build from Levi's to Manning,
and thus put us in a position
where we could demand competi
tive freight rates with the At
lantic Coast Line. The country
through which the road we have
in mind would run is level, and
very little grading, and trestle
work w ld-be necessary; it
open up a section now
-- being held back from develop
ment on account of no railroad
facilities. That such a road
would be of immense value to
this town and county is beyond
question, and when it is consid
ered the comparative small cost
of building it, we wonder why
steps have-not been taken long
ago to secure it. As we are now
situated, this town is completely
bottled; our market is suffer
ing for want of a freight rate to
put us on a footing with towns
within reach of our trade. In
our opinion, if our business men
will awake to their interests and
give this matter the serious con
sideration it deserves, within
twelve months, the matter will
take active shape, and in a short
time thereafter good results will
come. We have several times
urged that some steps be taken
towards inducing the North
Western and the Alderman roads
to come here; these would serve
as good trade feeders, even if
they will not affect our freight
rates, but the road we suggest
now, to touch with the Southern
would give us the advantage of
both, trade feeding and competI
tion. We also believe, if our
people will push forward in this
matter, the Alderman road in
time, will tap the Seaboard Air
Line, and this will give us still
more advantage. The time is at
hand, when we should reaiz
the country is growing, an
it behooves every inter
look for that which will~
us to advance along e
other counties. We Jgn ' no
better way ,to deelby this
county than.>brou~gh railroads,
these instit ir stimulate the
sectionihey tisierse; and with
a lab& problem confronting us.
~ebelievie ,our only hope lies in
e lands now lying
- ant of people. 'The
n through which our pro
posed route would go, is almost
a due west course, and from
-every side it would invite im
migration, not necessarily for
eign, but good substantial white
people who must seek new homes
because of the increased valua
tion of lands in prosperous agri
cultural communities; made so
by the building of railroads.
These people are forced to pay a
rental of $5 to $8 per acre, for
lands not any better than ours,
because of the development,
and they would gladly move to
this county where they can buy
for about the same as they now
have to pay rent. We have giv
en this matter careful thought,
and have reached the conclusion
that if our business men will get
in communication with the offi
cials of the Southern, and show
them how cheaply a road can
be built, and the probabilities for
business, they will send their
surveyors over the route, and
make a favorable report. If they
fmnd the line we suggest is not
suitable to them,they may discov
er a better course from the Man
chester deport, which would
steer clear of the few hills on the
course to Levi's; ,they may also
conclude to reach further and
take in the Panola and Summer
ton sections. It matters not to
us the route selected, what we
want is to get unbottled. We
are satisfied, if our business men
will take this matter in hand, as
one of the inducements for con
-= sideration on the part of the
Southern, they can safely prom
ise free right of ways, because
we believe the owner-s of lands
would gladly give the right of
way when it is shown to thern
the advantage they would de
We are not writing this art-cle
for the sake of filling space; we
are anxious to arouse our own
people to the realization that they
should push forward the same'
as others. It is easy enough to~
make suggestions we know, but
when suggestions are made which
are clearly to the people's inter
ests,' they deserve more than
casual notice. Our county can
other, we can have mctories. we
can have diversitied industries.
No particular county has a pat
ent right to them.and where they
have them. it was brought about
by the enterprising spirit of its
own citizens. Let a community
of citizens be dormant, and the
country lies dormant, but let its
citizens go forward and exhibit a
spirit of energy and enterprise.
and the outside world looks with
favor upon the effort. There is
no doubt whatever if our people
and especially our business men,
will take the matter up seriously
good results will come from it.
The city of Sumter was bottled
up and it lay there flat. Colonel
Blanding set to work and for
years oi constant hammering to
build a railroad, until the people
begun to regard his efforts as a
joke, his labors seemed hopeless.

THE "ASSOCIATION" SPITS IN ITS HANDS
FOR A NEW HOLD.
There is another big trust
forming in this State a 81,000,000
concern with Bright Williamson
and R. Keith Dargan of Darling
ton and Major Abe Levi of Man
ning, corporators. The concern
is the independent Cotton Seed
Oil Company, with a retinery in
Charleston. This company 1s
the same trust in which the mills
in this county are operating, and
which have ground out such tre
mendous profits that they now
seek to increase the capital and
reach out for more territory.
They tell us the Independernt is
increasing its capital in order to
better compete with the Virginia
Carolina Chemical trust, but that
is all stuff:; they are increasing
their capital to get a better and
a bigger hold on the labor of the
people. They also tell us the
other trust is composed of "Yan
kees" and to keep them from
robbing our people, they are en
deavring to obstruct their
plans. We do not see it in such
a light, the Virginia-Carolina
Chemical trust may have among
lits stockholders Northern capi
:tglists, and if they are robbing
ar people, it looks to us like a
Mse of swapping the devil for
the witch; when our own capital
ists organize a trust to make for
themselves the profits estorted
by the Northern concern.
A trust, whether managed by
home people or foreigners, is an
engine of oppression, and unless
something is done to tear away
from the clutches of these greedy
monsters, in a few years our ag
ricultural population will be
heavily yoked indeed. There is
no use trying to evade the issue,
we must either fight the en
croachments of these corpora
tions daily organizing to squeeze
out competition and create mo
nopoly, or turn our backs upon
the people and desert to the en
emy. That these monopolies are
enemies of the people there can
be no doubt, and a little study of
their movements will convince
the most skeptical.
The law-making power is now
in the control of those interested
in these institutions, from it
we cannot see any hope of relief.
We have no doubt that if a bill
comes up in the General Assem
bly which will cripple the Vir
ginia-Carolina Chemical Com
pany, some who own stock in
Independent mills will support
the measure, but if the bill
sweepingly seeks to smash trusts
it will be another matter and it
will not receive the support of
those interested in the Independ
ent trust, or what they decep
tively gave out to the people as
To convince any intellig~ent
man of the grasping disposition
of these trusts~look at the advan
tage they seek to take from their
patrons in the matter of cotton
seed. A farmer is induced by a
very temuting offer to have his
cotton ginned by them: they give
him a miserable quality of hag
ging: he leaves his seed
and gets ostensibly a re
ceipt, but in fact a one
sided agreement which is noth
ing more than permitting the
mill to have the seed on its own
te-ms. When the farmer wants
his seed the mill refuses to give
them up, and endeavors to for-c-e
the far-mer to take what the mill
chooses to give. In our opinion
such a paper is not binding in
law. and in morals it is worse.
How many farmers take the
trouble to read the printed part
of the paper given them for a re
ceit it onysos how eager
these institutions are to take all
manner- of advantage of the uni
suspecting farmer-a class who
are the victims for most of the ma
chinations of the devil: if there
regions, the first to get caugh
in its meshes is the farmer, and
why? Because he will not trus1
his neighbor, nor will he stand
by an organization or by a mar
that seeks to thwart these evils.

not varied enough to attract attention.
When the State building, with the
ma rnificent line of exhibits. was thrown
open to the public, it was soon seen
that this was a grave error, and the
universal ve rdict was that no finer col
lective exhibit had ever been presented.
For this the Legislatare appropriated

thousands of these desirable home
seekers as the result of Expositions at
Atlanta and Nashville. South Caro

exhibit of its agricultural resources
It is. however, not onlv in the arri
eultural line that good will result from
an exhibit. In 1890 there was invested
in manufactures within the Sfate a cap
ital of 523,276,261: in 1900 this had
grown to 67.365,465, and the number
of establishments had increased fron
3.303 to 3.703. The majority of capital
so invested is in cotton factories and
the manufacture of fertilizers. We
have the resources in many sections of
the State for the establishment of di
versified industries; by bringing them
to the attention of investors, millions of
additional capital can be secured for

most everything that tends to its up

all raw material, all industrial inven

upon enlightened communities.

that no agency hitherto made known is

great results as Expositions. and noth

scanning the horizon for indications of
such regions, and direct their course

attractive way all the industries and
possibilities of a country, material or
otherwise. and in every 'case it has
pt'oved itself the most successful power
known, in bringing in wealth and in
creased reputation. The experience of
all who have patronized them testifies
-to this fact.

Editor The Mannin:: Times:
The Wayside school of the Wheeler V
neighborhood, that is taught by Miss al
Lidie L. Ferguson, delighted the par
ents, children and a large host of
frienids, on the evening, Dec. 24th.,
with quite a large and most beautiful
Christmas tree. For days and even
weeks, we could hear the dear little
ones, saying, I wonder what old Santy .
will bring me! Mliss Lidie, do you
think he will drive reindeers or walk? I
When told that he would come down
the chimney, and finding us minus of a
chimney, they tried to straighten the
stove pipe, and when the pipe was al
most in the shape of a Shepperds crook
ther decided we would have a very
black Santy aud would allow him* to
come in at the door. When he arrived
we joined him. A very good and gen
erous young Santy, and not an old one.
The tree wvas most tastely dressed e.
crowned with angels, and decorated
with tinsel. ornaments and toys of al
most every description. The school
room was beautifully, decorated with
the U. S. flags, and the red, white and
blue colors. The center of the room
was formed into a Japanese villiage:
which was very beautiful.
With many wishes for you, M1r. Edi
