A Good Convention.
The convention of farmers which met
in Manning last Friday, was made up
of representative men from every sec
tion of the county who are determined
to do all in their power to fight off any
thing like oppression. These men are
not alarmists, nor do they belong to
the class who are constantly urging
something for nothing, these men are
conservative in their views, and liberal
in their propositions. They are organ
ized for the protection of themselves
against the greed of an unscrupulous
trust, whether it be an oil mill or a fer
tilizer factory, and they are also organ
ized to make an endeavor to get advan
tage from buying fertilizers in large
quantity, believing that in doing so,
they will save considerably by it.
The convention was presided over by
Hon. E. R. Plowden, the county presi
dent, and when Secretary Richbourg
called the roll of delegates, it was
found that the New Zion club had what
may be termed a contesting delegation,
the contester being Dr. I. M. Woods
who claimed that he was appointed a
delegate. Objection was raised to the
seating of Dr. Woods by County Lect
urer D. J. Bradham, who in a vigorous
speech set forth the fact that the or
ganization had decided Dr. Woods ine
ligible to membership in the organiza
tion, and therefore he could not be a
delegate. Dr. Woods made several at
tempts to make a speech, but each time
he was called down by the president,
and when at last he realized he would
not be permitted to annoy the body, he
picked up his hat and went out of the
door muttering words not to be found
in the Psalms. As soon as the conven
tion had rid itself of this incident it got
down to business.
Captain D. J. Bradham made an ad
dress, taking for his theme the lien
law, its demoralizing tendency, and its
damaging results. He advocated its
abolition. He discussed the labor ques
tion, and attributed much of its present
condition to present easy facilities to
procure credit. He also discussed the
cotton seed condition, and related what
passed between the management of the
oil mill and himself over the 'phone with
regard to the price,and as is usual with
him he told a war story.
Rev. R. A. Sublett of Summerton,
who was present by invitation was in
troduced, and his address was indeed
very instructing; every farmer in the
county would have been amply paid for
his trip had he been present and heard
the discourse. Mr. Sublett discussed
the fertilizer question from the stand
point of a practical scientific farmer,
one who knows the value of the ingred
ients which go to make up fertilizers,
and he demonstrated the commercial
value of the fertilizer in a manner sim
ilar to a demonstrator in a chemistry
class. During Mr. Sublett's remarks
all eyes were rivited upon him, and
every man present feels that he has,
gained important knowledge from him.
The speaker urged the combination of
the farmers to make their fertilizer
purchases., and offered to go to Charles
ton at his own expense to see what
could be done to save money. He said
he was personally interested to the ex
tent of about 110 tons, and if his fellow
farmers would join with him he be
lieves there would be a considerable
save He showed the analysis of the
various guanos, and demonstrated their
respective commercial values, and
what the companies were asking and
compared the prices with last year,
showing an advance of from $2 to 85 per
ton, without there being any material
rise in the cost of the material which is
compounded in the product. This ad
vance according to the speaker is largely
attributed to the companies being in
in combination. There are some con
cerns that claim to be independent, but
their quotations are identical with the
trust - they are all in the com
bine, or arrange their prices at the dic
tation of the Trust. Mr. Sublett urged
the farmers to not make any unreason
able demands, at the same time resist
anything like extortion even to the ex
tent of letting the manufacturers keep
their goods. He took up the Peruvian
guano now on the market, -gave to his
hearers its component parts and its
commercial value, and recommended
its use. He welcomed its coming in
and if it could be delivered in sufmcient
quantities he believed it would act as a
check upon the trust. The farmers, he
said, can make the trust a fair proposi
tion for their goods allowing thema reas
onable profit, and if it is not accepted
he would advise the use of the Peruvian
or to go one year without any commer
cial fertilizeai at all. At the conclusion
of his most excellent and instructive ad
dress the coavention gave him a vote
of thanks and appointed him a commit
to visit Charleston to confer with the
factories, and report the result of his
mission to President - Plowden, who
will issue a call for another convention
to deal with the grades and prices Mr.
Sublett brings back.
There was some disappointment ex
pressed at the non-appearance of the
county's representatives. An invita
tion was extended to them through the
press, but only one made his appear
ance. This body of citizens had a
right to expect a more courteous treat
ment from their representatives, these

tention of that law that they absente;

They were inv ted to attend this farm
ers convention, and they neither camc
nor did they write any reason why, and
according to our view of such matters,
when representatives ignore their con
stituents, as these men have done, they
should be made to feel that the farmers,
composing a large majority of our vot
ing population, are entitled to the pres
ence of their public servants when call
ed to meet and confer with them or
matters of public concern.
Hon. J. H. Lesesne, the only repre
sentative present, when called upor
took occasion to thank his hearers fo
the honor conferred upon him and that
he had listened with much interest tc
to the speeches of Capt. Bradham and
Mr. Sublett. From the latter he had
learned much which was not only inter
estingly put, but it opened up to him
new information. He was ready and
willing to render what aid he could tc
better the condition of the country and
the present opposition to the agricultu
ral lien law was nothing new to him,
from his boyhood he realized its de
moralizing effect, and while he did not
believe in repealing all liens, he favors
repealing such liens as purport to
mortgage that which does not exist.
That whatever the organization desires
acted upon by the legislature if they
would put their wants in writing and
send it up, he would bring it to the at
ention of the rest of the delegation,and
take such action as in their judgement
was best for the country at large. That
while he was willing to aid them in
their efforts to better their conditition
he was only one of 124 members of the
lower house, and he could only promise
for himself to do his best in whatever
measure appealed to his conscience and
hir..Millard Wells,a farmer-merchant
>f Summerton, took occasion to take is

%o one had mentioned the sublect in
he convention, and Mr. Wells' spring
Lng it at the time was, as was very evi
lent, a load he brought from home, and
t just had to be rid of or bust. A com
nitee was appointed to draft resolu
ions covering the sentiments of the
~onvention with regard to the lien law
d the trusts, with instructions to send
~hem to Mr. Lesesne who would see to
t that the delegation take some kind of
ection upon it.
We regard the convention the most
mportant yet held, and we ask our
eaders to watch for the call of Presi
lent Plowden on Mr. Sublett's return
rrom Charleston. When the call is is
sued every farmer should respond, and
ve believe they will, because it will

Death of Rev. J. E. Dunlop.
Saturday morning at 6 o'clock the
the grand and noble spirit of that old
Confederate soldier and the soldier of
Christ, Col. J. E. Dunlop, passed into a
brighter and better world, where the
rnumerable hosts of Heaven shouted
the glad Hosannas and welcomed him
into'the Celestial City of God.
As a soldier, as a citizen, as a Christ
ian, Col. Dunlop had no superiors, and
few equals. Big hearted, kind and
gentle, always making excuses for the
frailties of others, he exemplified that
true Christ-like spirit, in keeping with
his high and exalting calling.
Col. Dunlop was 70 years old on the
.9th of December. lie was born in
1833. He leaves five children. His
remains will probably be taken to
Marion for interment and placed beside
his wife. He was only sick one day,
having been stricken with heart trou
ble on Friday morning.
Col. Dunlop was also one of the
highest Masons in the State. He was
both a Knight Templar and a Shriner.
A delegation of the Masonic fraternity
from this city will probably accompany
his remains to Marion.
Rev. Dunlop had been the pastor o;
the Presbyterian church in this city
since it was first established here.
As a Confederate soldier, he was
known by his friends as "the fighting

Mr. John H. Cullom, Editor of the

letter of congratulatious to the manu
facturers of Chamberlain's Cough Rein
edy as follows: "Sixteen years ago
when our Erst child was a baby he was
subject to croupy spells and we would
be very uneasy about him. We began
using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
1887. and finding it such a reliable rein
edy for colds and croup, we have never
been without it in the house since that
time. We have live children and have f
given it to all of them with good re
sults. Oue good feature of this remedy
is that it is not disagreeable to take and I
our babies really like it. Another is
that it is not dangerous, and there is no
risk from giving an overdose. I con
gratulate you upon the success of your
remedy." For sale by The R. B. Lor

Assessors and taxpayers will enter
the first given name of the taxpayer

for each party for the township the
property is in, and where the tax
payers own realty, to insert the post
office as their place of residence, and
those who only own personal prop
erty, to give the party's name who
owns the land they live on as their
residence, which aids the taxpayer
as well as tLe County Treasurer in
making the collections and prevent

to the first day of October each year
the Auditor and Treasurer's dupli
cate has to be completed and an ab
stract of the work in the Comptroll

show at a glance that the Auditor
has no time to take in returns or do
anythino else much, between the
first dafof March and the first day
of October each year but work on
the books and blanks. Therefore I
hpe that all taxpayers will do me
the favor of making their returns in
