A STRAINED COMPARISON.
"Charleston will never submit to com
p ing with the present provisions of the
dpensary law, because it is not suited
to its mixed population, but we believe
if the Legislature could give that city a
license system with dispensary regula
tions, not as those regulations are now,
but somewhat modified, the law would
be enforced. We do not think ita wise
policy to have a law on the statute books
which the people of a community do not i
want, and which they believe is damag- j
ing to t h e i r interest."--MANNING
TIMES. The above idea is capable of
being still further extended. There is
a class of people in this State who do
not seem to submit to the present law
against appropriating another's goods.
Why not have the Legislature amend
the law for their benefit so that they
may help themselves at the store and
smokehouse without penalty? They will
never submit to the present law against
stealing.-Aiken Journal and Review.
The Aiken Journal and Re
view comparison is rather far
fetched, "appropriating of an
other's goods" is stealing and is
forbidden by both, the divine
and statute laws; morals as well
as well as public policy makes
stealing a crime and punishable,

take from the citizen a traffic

therefrom, the State is on record

thought to be against the farmer

Now we want those who read

who are using our advertising
space are the actual supporters
to the paper, for without the ad
vertising it would be impossible
to run, and we think our friends
should, if they wish to support

those who support their paper.
For some time this paper has
lived in spite of the boycott of a t
few business men in this town
and it can continue to live with
out them; the boycotters, how
ever, receive some of the benefit
of our work for the upbuilding
of Manning's trade, which, if our
friends were to feed them with
the same spoon they feed us,
they would not get. They would
be given to understand if they

Editor The Manning Times:
In my last ruminations, I said some
thing about a big gun that had been
fired up North somewhere, and how
heavy that gun must have been loaded.
from the great number of people it had
hit and wounded. Well sir, I tried
hard to describe that gun. but I didn't
half way do it, and I don't believe any
body but them fellows that shot it can
do it. There has been more groans.
grunts and growls in the tobacco ware
houses in South Carolina this year.
caused from the firing of that everlast
ing tobacco trust gun, than ever any
living man could count. And I tell you
Mr. Editor, if I was the man manipula
ting that trust, I wouldn't consi.pr
South Carolina a safe place to hive in
just now. And if the tobacco men in
South Carolina were to give a big bar
becue dinner and invite the head trust
man down here as an honored guest, to
make a big speech and explain to us
wool-hatters why it's necessary to
squeeze the very gall out of us, I just
bet you a quarter he wouldent come.
No sir he wouldent come, if we was to
pay his way on the railroad. I just
tel you what's a fact sir, it ain't right
for those men just because they have
the money, to run the bull over us that
way. And I tell you something else,
they have sure run the bull, the cow,
the calf and a whole drove of heifers
over us this year, but my mind tells me
they won't need near as big drove of
bulls to do the job next year as it took
this year. No sir: if things goes on
this way it won't take but a mighty lit
tle drove of small yearlings to do do the
job next year. I look for that English
American tobacco trust to sell out and
quit the busines after this year, and if
they don't, they will be the biggest set
of fools that ever fed on green grass.
Mr. Editor, you reckon they ain't got
sense enough to see that they are kill
ing the very old goose thats been laying
so many golden eggs for 'em so long?
They are stealing a mighty big lot of
hard earned dollars in South Carolina.
They may call it business now, but when
they appear before old Peter, I don't
believe their idea of business and old
Peter's idea is going to agree exactly.
Now, Mr. Editor, Ican't believe the
warehouse men are doing what they
might to help the farmer. They too
are helping to kill the goose that lays
the eggs. The warehouse men are
right here among us, and many of these
are, or used to be tobacco farmers and
know what it takes to raise a crop of
tobacco. Knowing this, it does ieen
like when the trust runs the price away
down below the cost of production that
the warehouse men might help us to
bear at least a part of the burden.
They know, and we farmers know that
they charge us too much for selling our
tobacco. But the law allows them that
much aad of course they waut it. By
showing something like a liberal "give
and take" spirit and share the burd
with the farmer by cutting off at least
a fraction of the expense attached to
marketing the weed they would not
only foster the tobacco industry, but
would show the farmer that they were
on our side, and wasn't taking sides
with the trust. As it stands now it
looks like the warehousemei and the
trust have locked horns to clean up the
tobacco farmer. But as I intimated
before thats the end of the busines.
However, as a kind of warning note I
would say that a tobacco warehouse
wouldent do its basses much aood with
out tobacco to sell on their floors; and
the tobacco trust men, no matter how
much more they have got can't make a
merchantable quality of tobacco out of
oak leaves. Alright! The tobacco far
mer just simply cannot raise tobacco at
the present prices. And that just
means that somebody is going to run
out of a job if things don't improve.
"Yon can fool some men sometimes but
you can't fool all the people all the
time." That's true as gospel. Now a
word or two to the merchants of Clar
endon county and if the merchants out
side of Clarendon want to listen, O. K.
Merchants, whose side are you on?
Where do you stand? Are you witni
the men that gives you your meat and
bread, and keeps something on your
backs, or are you with the trust? There
ain't any half-way ground, you must be
somewhere. You may snife and turn
up your noses at the idea of a poor wool
hat cuss keeping your business running,
but kill the farmer and where will you
stand. If you are on our side stand for
us and show your appreciation of past
patronage by simply cutting loose from
the trust. You, the merchants of the
Uuited States can kill the American
Tobacco Company as dead as a herring.
How can you do it? By simply steering
clear of it and not bnying a pound of
their tobacco; unless they treat the far
mer right. We farmers are an amiv~ble
set of fellows and wouldent hurt the
hair of a cat unnecessarily. We don't
want to hurt the American Tobacco Co.,
if they will tote fair, and dont want the
merchants to do it if they can avoid it.
which they can. The merchants are
organized and if they-, would officially
notify the American Tobacco Co.. that
they would have to deal fair or loose
their patronage the dog would be dead.
Merchants, you can do it. Won't you
do it? For the sake of the suffering ill
treated farmer, who is always yougr
friend, won't you come to his rescue in
this his time of need?
If some young and energetic set of
business men were to open up a tobacco
store in Manning and let it be widely
known that they would not handle trust
goods, and would deal fair and square,
it wold take 75 clerks to keep the cus
tomers satisfied. Chewing and smok
ing tobacco can be bought outside of
the trust, and why don't somebody try

Lightning struck the house of Wash
