which we expected better, takes
the position of a politician in
fear'of losing his job, and tries
to frighten the people away from

a Republican bug-a-boo, in the
speech of Hon. John L. McLau

on cotton so that the cotton

'protected the same as are the
wheat growers of the West. The
State says "if Mr. McLaurin

Mr. McLaurin when in Congress
urged upon Congress to be fair
to the South, that if a tariff of
25 cents per bushel was to be

as easy to prejudice the mind
with any thing that could be al

people then, were in a condition
to be dieceived, but that day is
past, and the time has come
when the people are looking for
uiaterial results and not frazzled
out political theories. If Mr.
RJMcLaurin's. ideas can pro

- hat our readers may see, we
reproduce an editorial from the
Columbia State and a reply to it
from the Columbia Record:
ELOQUENT BUT NOT COMMoN. SENsE.
SThe State has no dfesire to suppress
the enthusiasm of Former Senator Mc
iLaurin in his efforts to aid the South
-ern farmers, but if such efforts are to
be successful they must be expended
along practical lines: the beginning
-should be a right beginning. 'That
*was a very' eloquent speech made to the
farmers and bankers by Mr. McLaurin
and it was enthusiastically receivedi,
hut eloquence is a drug on the market:
what we want is common sense. And
in that latter quality Mr. McLaurin
was deficient: he was absolutely illog
The former Senator,,as anintroduc
tion to his argument\for protection,
sneered long and loud t "the cry of
overproduction," and tl talk of."sup
ply and demand." To prove the fallacy
of a living and enforced law, he comn
pared the wheat farmer with the cot
zonfarmer and held that the wheat
farmer,-through protection and organ
ization, had maintained prices which
are the equivalent of 1.24 cent cotton.
But fatal to his argument against the
potency of supply and demand as a gov
erning factor in commerce, Mr. Mc
*Laurin makes the wheat grower say:
"Every grain of our wheat is consumed
each year, and yet we hear of famine
in Ireland, England, India and Russia.''
With every grain consumed and people
hungry for bread there is certainly no
overproduction, the demand is greater
than the supply and the price of wheat
should be high. The wheat farmer
has helped himself by organization; not
a trust or unlawful combine, but a bus
imess arrangement by which wheat is
stored in elevators and sold to consum
ers when needed, instead of being
dumped, in billlion bushel quantities,
on the market as soon as threshed. We
are supporting an organization of cot
ton farmers to handle their cotton
crop in a like business manner. But let
the wheat growers produce a quarter
of a billion bushels more than the de
mand and, with their protection, their
storehouses and their organization,
prices will drop. The cotton groweri
must realize that great truth and not
allowv themselves to be befuddled by
theorists or led to worship strange
gods. No man doubts that cotton
,would now be selling for 12 cents ii
America had produced 10,000,000 in
stead of 12,T50,000 bales last year.
Mr. McL.aurin knows that overpro
duction has forced down the price ol
cotton. The purpose of this organiza
tion of farmers is to hold the surplui
adso to reduce the yield of the next
crop as to restore the balance between
production and consumption and tc
maintain that balance thereafter. The
recognition of the law of supply and
demand is the soul of the farmers or
Eighteen months ago when cottor:
was selling for fifteen cents a pound a
New York speculator who had to de.
some squeezing by bringcing from En
land a few hundred bales of cotton that
had been shipped there from New York.
Mr. McLaurin seizes on that incident,
magnifies it, and attempts to make
farmers believe that an import tax on
cotton will benefit them. He would
have them embrace the dearest Repub
lican principle for a mere shadow: such
a tax could never benefit any but the
cotton gamblers and then only when
the price was abnormally high. A way
with the fatuous arguments
Senator McLaurin, in advocating the
formation of a trust, says: "Whether
the power would be abused or not is
another question: but I do say that it
makes you for the time the complete
master of the cotton world." The State
has earnestly urged the farmers heed
the nursery-told fable and not run the
risk of killing the goose that lays the
Erolden eggs. And the farmers are
evincing every dispositiou to be wisely
conservative. What we wish is a busi
ness organization to be exerted in the
production of moderate crops to be sold
as demanded at such reasonable prices
that farmers and manufacturers may
both prosner and no incentive given
for the development of more cotton
lands in other countries. A "trust"
that would attempt to maintain 13 cent
cotton would result in depriving the
south of her natural monopoly. Tem
porary mastery of the market and
future slavery are what it promises.
After proposing to protect cotton
with a tariff on the raw product-a
protective tax that will benefit the
farmer no more than a protective tax
on cow peas--Mr. McLaurin suggests
taking off the tariff on cotton bagging.
But can 'e consistently worship pro
tection and free trade? The tax on-bag
ging should come off: it is robbery.
But we can ask it with better -race by
refraining from demanding protection
on cotton-a virtue which will not be
expensive since the duty would give
us no benefit. The tariff on cotton ties
and plows and harrows and hoes and
spades and trace chains and leather
harness and a hundred and one other
items for which the farmer pays
double, should be reduced to a tariff
for-revenue basis. That would help the
farmer immensely; and greater would
be his profits if a taciff for revenue
instead of a tariff for the enriching of
the few at the expense of the many
were laid on everything that the
farmer wears, eats or uses. More than
all the speculator combined has the
tariff weighed upon the backs of the
American farmers. And they must not
be induced to believe it can befriend
them by putting pennies in one pocket
while taking dollars out another.
If Mr. McLaurin wishes to be useful
to the southern farmer let him desist
from this protection. propagandism and
devote his efforts to sustaining a co:n
mon sense, conservative, business or
ganization of the men engaged in the
great business of cotton growing.-The
WHO SHOWS coMMON SENSE?
The State, in an editorial, attempts
to sneer at the speech of Senator Mc
Laurin, and says what we need is
"common sense, not aloquence." Mr.
McLaurin's views are practically the
same presented at rhe New Orleans
convention, and received the unani
mous endorsement of that great body.
They have also been commented upon
and most heartily approved by such
papers as the Times-Democrat and
Daily States, of New Orleans, the New
York Sun, Journal of Commerce, Char
lotte Observer, Review of Reviews and
other journals of that type, and it was
reserved for the editor of The State to
point out their lack of "common sense."
The truth of the matter is when o.ne
reads Mr. McLaurin's speech here and
at New Orleans, and then the editorial
of The State, he cannot but conclude
that the writer of the latter needs a
few lessons in economics. He says,
Mr. McLaurin argnied against the law
of supply and demand, when, as a mat
ter of faet, he was pointing out that the
cotton planters were deprived of sup
ply and demand, and contending that
the only permanent solution of the cot
ton problem is to increase the demand
for cotton goods. The State's position
is that the only solution is to curtail
production of raw cotton. Mr. McLau
rin says this is only a temporary expe
dient, that it may meet the immediate
situation, but that it cripples the mills,
decreases the consumption of cotton
goods, while stimulating an increase in
the production of raw cotton elsewhere.
We leave it to any fair critic, to say
which is the common sense position.
Mr. McLaurin says, supply the mills
with all the cotton they need at a rea
sonable profit, manfacturje it into goods,
sell these goods abroad, create a great
er demand, then when prices go up
the advance will be stable, not depen,
dent on artificial under-production, but
upon increased consumption. Who
shows the common sense?
As to the tariff, Mr. McLaurin says.
the wheat farmer is protected 25 cents
per bushel from importations of wheat
from Canada and -the Argentine. If
they could bring this in and break
prices in the United States they would
break prices all over the world. He
says do the same for the cotton planter,
enable him to hold his market like the
wheat planter does.
The State sags, "Oh, no; that is not
Democratic; let them bring all the cot
ton of the world here; let them borrow
cotton that has been sold once in Eu
rope and bring it back here and sell it
again, break the market and buy the
planter's cotton cheap."..
Which is the common sense position?
If the wheat farmers are protected
against the ravages of bear speculators
who were getting their wheat at 50
cents, why is not the cotton farmer en
titled to the same.
The State says that only a few hnn
dred bales were shipped back here
from Europe. There was 8,000 bales
shipped at one time, and there was
over a million bales in Europe. and the
threat was made to ship it all back
here. The mere threat was sufficient.
No bank would advance money to a
bull clique in the face of such condi
If The State is long on common sense
we ask it why, if speculation is to go
on, why bull nool in cotton should not
have as good a chance as a bull pool in
wheat? Why should not Sully, Brown.
and Hayne, have the same chances in
sustaining prices as Theodore H. Price
in depressing them? McLaurin sounded
the key note when he said it is "Dixie
avenue against Wall street." The fact
is that the politicians in this State
view with alarm this farmer's organi
zation, and they would like to break it
up. One who has been repeatedly a
a candidate for office, was quite in evi
dence at the convention and his sneer
in his remarks about "political bum
mers and hirelings going arouad organ
izing the people" sounded very much
like the old days when the farmers'
movement was in its infancy.
This is a wider, broader movement
than the old farmers' movement, and
it will succeed just as surely, but upon
broad, national lines. The people are
awake and valuing men and things at
their true worth.

for Congress to create a judge

this State, it has been disgusting

land them, renounce Democracy
and embrace republicanism, so
anxious are they for office. The
indications are, however, that
that if an appointment is made a
Republican will get it, and we
believe the plum will fall into
the lap of Captain John G. Ca
pers, whose ability is unquestion
ed, and who has rendered the
Republican party great service
in this and other States. He is
a South Carolinian, thoroughly
identified with the pfople, and
even in the Democratic party he
has many friends who admire
him for his pluck and energy.
THE GOVERNOR IS RIGHT.
We have~ been waiting to see
what effect Governor Heyward's
opinion about the need of two
parties in South Carolina would
have, but so far nothing has
come of it, the opinion has been
allowed to go with little or no
comment. Whether this being
the Governor's second term has
anything to do with the silence
we do not know, but we believe
had he expressed such views
before his second election the
political hounds would have
gotten on his trail, and they
would have nosed every politi
cal wood-pile in search of the
There is not the slightest
doubt if South Carolina had two

public office, and the consequence
of this state of affairs is that

est ability govern.
We haves for years advocated
the election of men to office on1
learly defined issues but the
politicians would not have it so,
because if the people are per
mitted to consider men and

professional politician and his
avocation is gone. Besides two

A Library Monument Suggested.
Editor The Manning Times:
Sometime last year a library fund
was started in Manning, and I believe
you was the promoter of it by offering
to be one of the ten to donate the
first one hundred dollars. The
amount was soon raised, and another
$100 followed, even with more money.
Now I not ice in your paper the chil
dren, of the late Moses and Hannah
Levi have honored .their father and
mother by donating $1,000 for the same
purpose. These noble gets are very
highly commended by our citizens and
everybody is considering how to best
conduct the library, where it should
be located, what books it shall contain,
and rules to govern the same. Various
plans are suggested. En my humble
opinion,' the funds so thoughtfully do
nated, together with what is on hand,
is not sufficient to establish a perma
nent library in keeping with the pro
gressive sptrit of this town. There.
should be something done by our cit
zens to show that the gift to our public
institution is appreciated.d
I would suggest that $1,000 be, raised
to erect a suitable building for the
Hannah Levi Memorial Library, one
that will be a monument to the honored
one. To raise this $1,000, I will sub
scribe $25. with the -first twenty citi
zens, and $10. with the next fifty, and
if 1,000 will not raise 'enough for a
suitable building the Town Council
should appropriate $500 more, and if
Council will not do this I will be one of
one hun,dred citizens to contribute the
500. When two~or more persons have
subscribed towards raising the first
900 for the fund, if they will call at my
store, a treasurer wili be selected to
take charge of all the contributions, un
til the whole sum is subscribed, and he
will then turn same over to the trustees.
