WAS OUR REPORT UNWARRANTED?
Our readers have this week
from our representatives, their
reasons why they did not attend
the farmers' convention held on
the Sth inst., and were it not for
one or two statements made in
these letters, we would publish
them without any comment what
ever, as all three of the distin
guished gentlemen appear a little
thin-skinned to criticism, and do
not seem to understand the dif
ference between the acts and do
ings'of a private citizen, and a
man in public life reaping the
honor and glory of otlice. As
long as we are able push a pen
cil in the newspaper business we
shall comment on the acts and
doings of a public official, re
gardless of what he or they may
think of it, and we can do this
without any personal friendship
or enmity either.
Senator Davis is mistaken in
saying the article .he refers to
was in our editorial columns; it
was on our local page, in the
news columns; the difference is,
our editorials are the sole expres
sion of the views of the editor,
.-and an item of news although
I written by the editor is a state
ment of facts, relating to that
which has occurred, and a sum
mary of the views, sentiments,
and expressions of those con
nected with the event. We make
- this explanation to teach the
senator the difference between
an -edit6rial and a news item,
-1fat in the future when he goes
into print he may do so with a
degree of intelligence. The sen
ator -disclaims having received
an invitation to attend the con
ventiot. but admits seeing in
:-the press the call, and mnvitation
of "Mr. J. M. Galloway, presi
dent of the local Manning club
in which he requested our dele
gation to be present." Did the
senator respond to that invitation
either in person or by letter?
No. Had Senator Davis written
a letter recognizing the farmers
they would not have felt any dis
courteous treatment. The entire
convention, including the visit
ors were under the impression
that the representatives had been
especially invited to be present
at the convention, we know they
were expected and looked for.
It is all very nice to say, "we
had~fully intended to be present,"
but it does seem, that when one
*finds, he cannot "fully" &arry out
-his intentions, it is as little as he
can do to write a courteous letter
The Senator says on~r "criti
cisms, which are uncalled for,
unwarranted and unjust,"he does
not '-believe are the sentiments
of the-farimers association." We
humbly make confession that
we did not fully expres the sen
timents of a large majority of
that'convention, had we done so,
*it is exceedingly doubtful if our
paper could have passed through
the mails. We dared not print
the opinions expressed, after the
O h, but, says our -distinguished
friend,we "are prompted by a de
gree of soreness," this is a measly
and lame defense, and we almost
feel that if we .could do so with a
degr'ee of truth, we would confess
soreness at having been displac
ed by a man, who so far, has not
exhibited any better qualifica
tions for the position than we
had, but he is mistaken, we are
not sore, nor would any decent
man be. who had received 809
votes in a primary where the
vote' had never exceeded 1556,
the machinery in the hands of
his opponents, and the greatest
power - in the State brought to
bear against him. Any man
would, after such a manifes
tation of confidence on the part
of the people, feel proud of the
distinction-more so, than in a
declaration of a doubtful election
to any office.
Senator Davis knows full
well we did not do "as much co -
vorting," we stayed at home,
until the meetmngs, while he
kept the roads hot with a per
sonal house to house canvass;
his statement that we - "claimed
indirectly to be pretty religious"
is not only a mistatement of
fact, but a very far-fetched at
tempt to twist an incident which
occurred in the Manning Metho
dist church, into political signifi
cause for our selfish purposes
it simply exposes the man's lit
tleness. The "speech in- a cer
tain church" referred to, was an
occasion when a number of citi
zens of Manning who were not
members of the Methodist church,
and the greater number like our
self, members of no church. but
who appreciate a high-toned,
broad-minded, pious gentleman,
desiring to make known our rev
erance and esteem for the man in
a practical way, purchased a tes
timonial to be presented to him
before he left this community.
Another gentleman was selected
to make the presentation speech,
and he was looked for, until the
time arrived; when it was learned
has- detanedat courmt in Sum
ter: it was then we were asked
to present the token, and it was
not only a proud privilege, but a
sacred one, to have the honor of
presenting to such a man as Rev.
P. B. Wells a token from a peo
ple who testified their love for
him; all of this occurred several
months after we "got left" in a
most ordinary election, manipu
lated so as to show a poll of
more votes than there are voters
without even considering the
large number who did not vote
in the second primary. But all
of this is irrelevent matter drag
ged in by him, the real issue is,
e Senator was expected at the
public meeting called by the ho
eal club and he did not show up.
His letter gives his reasons. He
was expected at the county con
vention and he was non est in
ventus up stump-um and his let
ter says why.
Hon. R. S. DeSchamps is un
fortunate in the use of his lan
guage when he speaks of our
being "unjust" to him in an "un
manly way," we are inclined to
think his vocabulary cog slipped
a notch. He also mistakes a
news-item for an editorial, won
er if these gentlemen have ev
er stopped'to consider the diff
rence between a circus poster
:nd a Sunday school tract? Mr.
DesChamps says h e did not
know he was expected at the
farmers' convention, and of
ourse he would not be- where
ie was not notified of his being
?xected,but if this is his reason
Eor not attending the convention,
hat was the matter with the
nvitation signed by Mr. J. M.
Galloway, did he respond to
that? No. It is generally sup
posed that our friend, Mr. Des
Dhamps is a farmer, and when
we say "our friend," we mean
it to be understood, we are his
friend, and was his supporter
In the last primary, but our per
sonal friendships do not infiu
nce, nor do they control our
views; with us it is merit, and
merit alone which counts. When
Mr. DesChamps does something
we disapprove of, we shall not
hesitate to say so, and when he
oes something we approve of,
we will take great pleasure in
ot only expressing our approval
but in giving such aid as we
The farmers of this county are

es, Mr. DesChamps is a farmer,
and a leading citizen, it does
strike us as remarkably strange
that a man who has been honor
by the farmers, is so far away
from. those who honored him
that he does not k-now or hear of
an important convention which
his brethren are to hold. It fur
ther strikes us, that farmer as
Mr. DesChamps is, and knowing
what is operating against the
farmer's interests, he would
throw all of his sympathy in the
effort to make their organization
a power for good. He did not
only stay away from the conven
tion, much to the surprise of
the delegates, but he did not
even respond to the Galloway
call. Why? He tells us in his
letter. We do not know that he
has taken enough interest in
the farmers orgauization to be a
member of it. No, Mr. Des
Champs, it is not "unmanly" to
report a truthful account of the
proceedings of a public gather.

impressions from the various
comments made. However, we
take pleasure in publishing Mr.

readers may know his reasons
for not attending the conven
Lastly, Hon. Jno. 0. Lanham
feels that we made an "unwar
ranted and unjust attack" upon
him, and goes on to say why he
was not present at the farmers
meeting. We should like him
and the rest of his very sensitive
collegues to point out wherein
we have made an "unwarranted,
unjust, unmanly" attack upon
those members of the Clarendon
d~eleation who did not attend
the farmers convention. Do
these gglemen think we are
running a white-washing ma
hine? We want them to under
stand distinctly, THE TIMES is a
newspaper, which will report in
its news columns the proceedings
of public gatherings, and when
ever in its judgment it thinks
the "aftermath"-the impres
sions gathered from the senti
ments of those who participate
are of interest to -its readers, it
will not~be guided by a "let me
alone policy," but shall endeavor
to do its duty to its readers. If
what we write meets with ap
proval, it will be gratifying, be
ause we shall be made to feel
that we are doing something
"for the good of the people at
large and for suffering humani
ty"--we want to do a whole lot
of these things, and would not
object, if we had on hand a 250
pound trunk full of these inten
tions. On the other hand if
what we write acts as a blister
upon the delicate skins of public
servants, they alone are to
blame, but we will be fair, our
columns are open to them to cor
rect any misinformation we might
give our readers, and to take
issue with us, and should they:
at any time show that we have
dlone them an injustice, we be
lieve the public would expect
our acknowledgement, Until
however, public officials make a
convincing showing, we will con
tinue on our course, and not be
swerved by favor or prejudice.
We are going to do our duty by
our readers like the Irish sheriff
proposed to have peace, in time
of a riot. "Oiw will have pace,
if oiw has to kill the last
am one of yez."
Mr. Lanham is another of the
Jelegation that we went consid
erably out of our way to support
but that has nothing whatever
the people as a newspaper. If (
the issue was his candidacy for
re-election. our vote would be
cast for or against him, not be
cause he was on the "Waccamaw Q
river, 14 miles from Conway, in
the backwoods" when his people
wanted him to be with them, but
because of the fitness or unfitness
he has exhibited as a legislator. a
Our readers will read the let
ters of these gentlemen and be u
the judges of whether or not the il
report of the farmers convention
in THE TIMES was "unwarranted ,
unjust or unmanly."

The tendency towards legislat- t
ing popular measures regard- I
less of m e r i t i s growing
stronger, and unless checked our
ralodfacilities will become
sorely hampered. At nearlyy
every session there is a flood of
bills which seek to control and
manage the business of the rail
roads, and the authors of these e
bills actually are never able to
show any demand for their meas
ures, but when the bill is intro- i
duced, and the title gets into the s
newspapers, their constituents
see that their representative is
"agin the corporations," which
is sufficient. We do not believeg
in the principle that "railroads I
have no souls to save," and
therefore should be tramped
upon at wil]. There is no doubta
that in many instances the rail- 1
roads do not furnish the accom
modations they should, and we
believe in making them do ally
that their earnings will permit
with a reasonable profit on the
investment, at the same time,
we do not think it is right to
make unreasonable demands of I
them for any particular class, or
to gratify spleen. Railroads are

force the law strictly against
them,~ but do not manufacturer

subject to croupy spells and we would t
be very uneasy about him. We began r
using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in t

been without it in the house since that t
time. We have five children and have t
given it to all of them with good re- o
sults. Oue good feature of this remedy t
is that it is not disagreeable to take and n

that it is not dangerous, and there is no
risk from giving an overdose. I con- ti
