WILL WAR BE GENERAL?
rThe news fronm the Russo-Ja
panl war has become so Conflict
in that to get any definite infor
mation is like attempting to
work the problem "How old is
Ann." We know there is a war
going on and that the Japanese
for the present have infiicted
the greater damage. but that
was on the water where the
Russians are greatly at a disad
vantage. Now as land opera
tions are beginning the reports
become confusing to such an ex
tent that we are at a loss to
know which or what is true.
Will there be a general war
among the nations? This ques
tion is beginning to force itself
upon the public mind. The Ko
rean monarchy giving aid to Ja
pan. and France exhibiting a
friendliness for Russia, with
Germany in sympathy with Rus
sia also. and England and the
United States looking for an op
portunity to give the command.
Halt! to Russia. a general con
flict is possible and altogether
probable. If it comes. England
and the United States will be al
lied with Janan and force China
to aid. Germany. France and
perhaps Italy will cast their for
tunes with Russia and all will
depend upon which of these alli
ances can do the most destruct
ion. In our opinion. should a
general conflict come. it will re
suit in the i obbling up of boti
China and Japan to be divided
among the powers as a conquest
of war. The effect on the coi
mercial world will be disastrous,
there will be panics and stagna
tion, all industries and callings
will suffer: the farmers will
only be able to realize on food
supplies and upon thenin a con
tracted mariket. as all shlipping
will b~e at a standistill. A genera.
war would be a calamity such as
the world has never suffered. Te

ino reason why the people
should be without todays news
Several State constables were
con victed in Charleston last
week, on the charge of assault
and battery of a high and aggra
vatced nature, and from the evi
dence we think the verdict a just
one. There is no doubt that
Charleston is infested with
blind tigers, and it may be, and
probably is true, that Weiters
was running one of these dives,
but in the enforcement of the law,
there is no just reason why the
officers should choke and bear a
man. If law officers overreach
themselves in the performnanet
of a duty they are as liable tc
nunishmnent as the man wh
overreaches the law avnd viol ates
it. We favor the enforcement of
the dispensary law all over ths
State, but we are opposed tc
ruffianism. The verdict in thi:
should be thoroughly investigat
ed by the governor, and if tin
constables are really guilty oj
going beyond their duty, they
should be dismissed from office
To win respect for a law, th
executing officers should so per
form their duties as to commn
respect, and this they cannot dc
by beating a gnan wvith "billies,
and choking him into insensibili
tv. When in the discharge of
duty resistance is oftrered, coo
judgment is needed, and only
enough force should be used tc
-repel the resistance. In thir
case several stalwart constable:
beat and choked one "corne
Dutchman" because he objected
to a search being made, and th<
evidence admitted of no doub
on the minds of the jury, tha
the constables abused thei:
trust. If a policeman was t<
beat a man over the head wit]
his club, because that man pull
ed back wvhen arrested, the lav
would punish the p)olicenmn, an<
because a man objects to hi:
premuses being search does no
give constables the power to in
niet corporal punisinnent. Tb
law provides means to puniisi
those resisting officers.

I haven't seen it. and 've seen a good
many. There: Its out for what it's
worth. Now for a good social chat
with my brothers in the wool hat bri
gade. Well, how about the cotton crop
for 1904? How many are going to plant
as much cotton this year as they did
last year' How many are going to
plant more' How many knows what
cotton will sell at per pound next fall?
How many are going to neglect a little
corn and provision crop for a big cotton
crop? HoIl many have traded their cot
ton seed (that ought to go to corn) to
the oil mill for meal to go to cotton?
How many are going to plant for 12c
cotton and make a debt that nothing
short of 12c cotton can pay? Then sup
pose cotton drops to Se, what will you
do about that other 4c? There's a string
o: questions for you and it will take
"ioss sense" to answer them too. And
felioi's there is the milk in the cocoa
nut. We've just got to use "hoss
sense" for that's about the only kind
we've got. Lets ask ourselves another
question or two and see if we can't
answer them this time. What made
tobacco sell at such a tine- price two
vears ago? Every body said specula
tion: What made tobacco sell for such
an exceedingly low price last year?
Every body says speculation. And the
speculator' is the man that's got the
money. Now the greatest and most
momentous question to us is, how can
we ever manage the speculator? We
can do it. This same set of one gallus.
wool hat farmers can do it by united
action, and we are the only set of men
on the top side of the globe that can do
it. How can we do it? By raising our
own bread and meat and making cotton
our extra, or surplus crop. That's an
old worn out tune but we can sing it if
we will. Another old worn out fact is
that we cannot make cotton to buy corn
with. We have tried it time and
again and it fails every time.
I say fellows, do you reckon they
gave us a stormin' big price for cotton
last winter because they loved us that
much? When tobacco went so high two
years ago, every body liken to went
crazy and planted a tremendous big
cron last year. and the precious specu
iator showed us just where and how
umch he loved us. As soon as we got
a big crop made one trust bought out
another trust, thereby killing competi
tion and the result was they just swal
lowed the tobacco farmer, tobacco and
all, and oh mny wasn't it funny to be
expecting a 10; crop and sell o,-Pj: 4c.
Well, that was a lessons w. learned
from actual experience. And now take
carec history da repeat itself. Every
bodv atvs oh: the demand is so great
I nd the'supply is so short that cotton is
bound to sell for a big price next fall.
it ain't bound to do anything of the
kind. It ain't got to sell for a cent, more
than the man with the money says its
ot to sell for, if we make a big crop.
Blrethren" dont liaut too much cot
ton, and what 1 mean by that is don't
plant eno:mgh cotton to cut your grain
and provis:on erop~ short. Just to the
extent that a person or a country needs
a thing, to that extent wvill they pay
for it. Then dont make too much cot
ton this vear. and v'ou will get a good
price forit next ftll. Ten bales at 12e
will bring you $600. and ten bales at ic
will bt'ing you $350 a difference of $250,
and it will cost just as much, and possi
bly more to make a pound cf ic cotton
as'it will a pound for 12c. Cut down
the acr-eage. And if you feel like you
are just obliged to make a heap of cot
ton, make it on fewer acres and at less
expdense per bale: and don't forget that
the speculator is not obliged to pay you
21c for it next fall. Come on corres
pondents of THE TIMES. Give us your
ideas along this line and your reason

were stiff and gav-e me much pain and

Pastor of the First Baptist Church Has
Something to Say of the Formation
of the New Baptist Association-In

TO THE CHURCHES OF TII- SANTEE?
B3RETHIREN:-It is said that on my
account, four churches, some of thet
quite widely separated from others as
to location, have been induced by lead.
ers unfriendly to me, to take their let
ters and leave the Santee Association.
The churches referred to are the Man
ning church. the Bartlette Strn"'
chulh. the Pisgah church and the
Salem church. It is due to those who
know uothing of the facts in the case to
Two years ago. Mr. Gough, the pa:
tor at Manning, took it upon himself
without any sort of premonition given
to me by any one. to go about among
some of the churches, seeking to induce
them to vote against me at the Sum
merton meeting, which was then near
at hand. For some reason, he failed to
find a sufficient number of voters, and
the project failed of realization. There
upon the larger part of the Manning
delegation returned home, and took no
further part in the business of that
session of the Association. The next
year, at Sumter, Mr. Gresham was
nominated for the office of the body:
but again there were not enough votes
to elect him. Last year, in November,
when the Association met in Manning,
I received 53 votes out of the 83 that
were cast; and that aftrnoon, the
Sumter delegation. exceptiL myself,
not desiring to remain in at:endance
upon what was not much more nor less
than a row, and at my advice and sug
gestion, returned to Sumter. This
aroused bad feelings in certain breth
ren, some of whom on a former occa
sion, had acted just as the Sumter del
egation acted: and therefore, on Satur
day, the whole business of the Associa
tion was sidetracked, in order that we
might hear the reading of the papet
which is published on page 7 of the
Minutes of the Association. In dis
cussing that remarkable paper, various
explanations were made. I myself
sought to make a few: but it was mani
fest that explanations were not what
was demand, and all that was said,
though a bad spirit was shown by nc
one, was unavailing. The Association
granted to the offended brethren the
privilege of publishing the paper, and
I myself voted that it be spread on the
Minutes. I felt then as I do now, that
the paper itself is its own best answer.
The minority seemed to feel much hurt
because the majority did not yield. Mr.
Gough felt called upon to say that I was
the only man in the State who would
continue in office in the face of such a
minoritv." The truth was I had more
respect. for the man than I had for their
The charge against me was that I
was playing "boss." and this bossism
was obnoxious to some of the brethren.
No other charge. however, was pre
ferred.. In fact, Mr. Gough. who was a
leader in this enterprise, has said to
me in letters which I have, and also on
the floor of the Assoehation,t,hat against
me personar- lie had no ill-feeling.
Thent could be only my official self
thia was odious to him. At any rate,
nothing but a general "bossism" was
ever made use of as an argument to
show that I should be ejected from the
office of Clerk of the Association.
When I began to reviewv the situa
tion, I came to see how they might have~
a shadow of foundation for the charge.
I have been in Sumter a long time. I
organized the Santee Association. and~
sought the officee of Clerk. which is the
pace of a servant, and avowed that]
would never consent to serve as Mod
erator, which office I have refused on
three occasions. The office of Clerk I
have held throughotut the history of the
body, and I'll venture that ours is orne
of the few bodies in the State, t wenty*
ive years old. wvhose archives are in
tact.~ This has arisen from tihe fact
that one man has kept them through
all the years of the life of the body. A
frequent change of Clerks generally
results in the loss eventually of all pa.
pers and records. If possible, it is best
for one man to retain this otfice for a
long time, unless lie develops a mani
fest unfitn'ess. For this reason, and be
cause I honestly believed I could fill
the office. I have gladly held it, re
garding it all the time as a place of ser
vice more than of honor. Latterly.
when ten or twenty brethren, out ol
nearly three thousand, wanted to eject
me, I refused to resign because they
had not sought to accomplish their ob
ject in a righteous and Christian waly.
I have always felt a profound inter
est in the welfare of the Santee
churches. It came to pass that the
brethren wrote to me about almost
everything-. I have been directly or
indirectly instrumental in getting pas
tors. at one time or another, for almost
all the churches in the Association.
during my twenty-nine years' 'ojourn
at Sumter. Then, besides, Sumter be
ing so central, the Executive Board
was located here, and one or another of
the Sumter brethren has been made
Moderator for years: so it was a tr~ue
charge that in me my church a large
part of the executive authority of the
Association was vested. But it was
also true that we did not seek these
honors. They were thrust upon us be
cause of our local habitation, and we
did not know that any ch urch or brothiei
was suffering because of our long occu
pancy of orfice. How we should con
gratulate ourselves that never once did
we abuse the power committced to us:
In oirder to gratify the malcoutent:
and get out of their way. I freely suir
rendered all official connection with the
Association, except the office of Clerk
which did nothing more than give mm
the privilege of writing the Minute:
once a year, and keeping a file of them.
But when nothing wvas left to me but
this one position, I was still like Morde
cai sitting at the palace gate, and th
same dissatislied few were displeasec
at my presence. Because my Churcl
naturally upheld ime and voted for m<
in this mnatter, the whole body spirit
ual, as we may justly infer from thial
paper published on page 7 of the Min
ues, became an object of odium to the
few brethren in question, and my pe~o
ple were called upon to bear the abuse
along with me, which same thing the:
have done with some marked degree o
p)atience and forbearance.
For three sessions, the meetingof the
Association was but little better than
political row. It seemed to be merely
question of endurnce,iuntil at last the
Executive Board held the malcontent
to the performiance of their threat t<n
the Association, or cease from wrang
ling and destroying the peace of the
body. They chose to quit.
Trough it all I believe it was myvdu
ty if nut my pleasure, to retain th<
lerkship, and thus to show South Car
olina Baptists, for once at least, tha
majorities have rights as wvell as minor
ities. And so I am still in office toserv<
y brethren. Against any expressee
wish from me, and in despite of the fac
that I now occupy :no other' official posi
