WE MUST BUILD WAREHOUSES.
The Sumter Item of Oth, alt.
THE MANNiNG TIEs advocates a
cotton warehouse for Manning because
Sumter has decided to build several.
Manning should have a warehouse by
all means. not because Sumter or any
other t*;vn has them but because every
cotton market that handles as much as
10.000 bales of cotton a season needs a
warehouse to enable the farmers to
hold their cotton until it can be sold to
We agree with our neighbor
ing contemporary, that "'Man
ning should have a. warehouse
by all means, not because Sum
ter or any other market has
them, etc.," but because it is a
sensible business proposition
that is a demand of business con
ditions. We mentioned the build
ing of warehouses in Sumter not
in a spirit of jealousy, but in
admiration of the business sagac
ity of Sumter's progressive men.
It is just that sort of wide-a-wake
methods that has brought Sum
ter to the forefront as a commer
cial centre, and puts her in a
position to absorb trade from the
That Manning should not wait
any longer to adopt progressive
methods is so patent that he
who runs mar read. We have
springing up all around us coin
mercial depots where the facil
ities for marketing products are
first and foremost in the consid
eration, and if Manning does not
awake to the necessity of offer
ing equal or better facilities for
handling the products of the
farmers, it must only blame
itself if the trade goes else
There was a time when the
farmer was solely dependent
upon the lien merchant to take
his cotton, but with the coming
in of banks, and the competition
among buyers. the cotton is
handled by first hands with
rapidity. The whole business
has undergone a revolution, and
the signs indicate that the cot
ton farmer is growing more and
independent, therefore, if those
who are in the mercantile busi
ness depend upon antiquated'
methods, their business will
shrival away to nothing.
Cotton warehouses built under1
insurance company regulations
must be built here, and that
right away. It is no use to wait'
until there are daily processions
of wagons ladened with cotton
going through the town before
action is taken. We spoke to a
merchant upon this subject, and
he was of the opinion that the
cotton growers should assist in
paying for the building of these
regulation warehouses. We dif
fer with him: the - farmer is not
forced to bring his cotton here,
he can go where proper facilities
are furnished him, the same as
he can go to trade where the
proper store facilities are f urn
ished. In our opinion the merch
ant might as well ask the farmer
to assist him in building a store
and furnish it with goods to sell,
as to expect him to pay for a
warehouse, in which he will be
urged to store his cotton at so
much per bale. If the farmers
are to build warehouses they
need not build them here, they
can build them in their respec
tire communities, and invite the
buyers to them, hence it is seen,
that it is to our merchants inter
ests to build the warehouses as
an inducement to draw farmers
to this market.
rHE OGDEN MOVEMENN.
The News and Courier, aided
by Tom Dixon, has been having
a controversy about the "Ogden
movement" with the Columbia
State. The latter paper has made'
a gallant fight to sustain its
position, but to our. mind the
voice of the demagogue appeal
ing to race prejudice is more
effective with the masses, than
is sound reasoning. Just inti
mate that a man or object leans'
favorably toward the negro,
whether there is any ground for
theintimation or not, the mere fact:
that it has been hinted at, and it
will give a certain class of nar
row view papers material to
manufacture a lot of material to
poison the minds of unthinking
readers. We have not entered
into a discussion of the merits or
demerits of the movement head
ed by Mr. Ogden. because we
believe more harm than good
can result from abusing the man
and his co-laborers. The South'
needs all the aid it can possibly'
get for educational purposes,
and if the Ogdenites propose to
aid us we see no reason to re
ject it, even if, as the opposition
say, the negroes will be aided
also. Are not the negroes aided
to procure an education by the.
whites now? The greater pro
portion of the school tax comes'
out of the pockets of the white
race, and the negro schools are
supported with this money,
then wbhyhijet to money being
brought here from the North,
and the management placed in
the hands of our own people?
If the Ogden movement has for
its purpose the education of the
negro alone, there might be
some reason for this war against
it, but as we understand it, if
money for educational purposes
is sent here, it is to be directed
by the school authorities, just as
the fund from school taxes is
is now. The fact that a large
majority of Southern educators
and men of eminence in the
South favor this movement is
sufficient to convince us that no
harm can result from it. "Tom
Dixon. the once Baptist preach
er, who gave up his holy calling
to enter the field of money inak
ing, has devoted much time and
newspaper space to abusing
Robert Ogdon, and charging
him with being a negro worship
per, a teacher of, and practioner
of social equality: this sort of
stuff is a very effective weapon
to arouse prejudice. but Mr.
Ogden denies Mr. Dixon's ac
cusations, and we see no reason
why Mr. Ogden is not entitled
to belief. Dixon says that in the
department store presided over
by Ogden there is a social equal
ity restaurant, where negro
shoppers can enter and buy a
lunch the same as a white per
son: we do not doubt this, but
that does not signify social
equality, any more so than in a
merchant who sells a dress pat
tern to a negro over the same
counter, and from the same piece
he sells to a white person. A
department store restaurant
has no social significence
whatever, these adjuncts to these
mammoth establishments are
for the accommodation of the
customers of the store, and they
have proven a help, especially to
out of-town shoppers. B u t
whether Mr. Ogden favors social
equality or not, has nothing to
do with the merits or demerits
of the educational work he is en
gaged in, Mr. Ogden nor a regi
ment of Ogdens can bring about
social equality, and the argu
ment on that line is purely dem
agogic and solely to appeal to
There are several county
newspapers in this State that
have been attracted by the
News and Courier-Tom Dixon
method, and are me-tooing to
beat the band, and now the
News and Courier is endeavor
ing to get the State to take its
batteries off of it, and direct
them on the "me-too's."
We have watched the discus
sion with considerable interest,
and admire the plucky fight,
against the odds of aroused
prejudice the State is making.
and we hope before the fight
ends the State will be able to
convince the reading public that
the Southern educational move
ment headed by Mr. Ogden has
been misrepresented, and that
the charges of Tom Dixon, are
as grossly exaggerated, as are
many of his statements in his
several books, notably the
MICAWBER ANSEL CAN BE WET OR DRY.
We clip from the News and
Courier of last Friday the fol
Thie Hon. Martin F. Ansel, of Green
ville, is in the city attending Court.
Several months ago he gave to the
Daily Mail his first authorized an
noucement for Governor to succeed
Governor Heyward at the end, of his
present term, says the Anderson Mail.
Upon asking Mr. Ansel about his can
didacy today, he said that he had every
reason to feel good, and that he was
finding new friends every day. He was
asked the direct question: "Mr. Ansel.
what is vour position on the dispensary
question?" "WVell," he replied, with
with a genial twinkle of his expressive
eyes. " Well, young man, don't you
think it is rather early for a candidate
for governor to be talking dispensary?
Remember, it is a whole year before
the campaign really opens and who
knows what may transpire to change
the status of the liquor situation in
those long 12 months? No, I don't
think I am prepared talk dispensary
Mr. Ansel, when last a candi
date for Governor, made a very
flattering run, placing him in
the position, if the conditions
are the same, as the logical can
didate in the next primary. We
did not support Mr. Ansel be
fore. because we have never
known or heard of anything he
ever did that entitles him to
consideration for so exalted a
position. He was a pretty good
Solicitor, but his record as a
prosecuting officer was no better
than the rest of the Solicitors in
the State. It does not require
a profound lawyer or statesmen,
or a business man to succeed in
convicting South Carolina's class!
of criminals. Mr, Ansel is a!
very genial and pleasant gentle
man, tells a pretty good story
and is an adept at handshaking,
but where his gubernatorial'
make-up comes in we are yet
to learn. When we read the
above extract we were struck
with its lack of candor-the
honest declaration we should ex
pect from a man seeking guber
natorial honors. The "genial
twinkle of his expressive eyes"
when he protested that it was
"rather ear]y for a candidate for
Governor to be taking dispen
sarv" has the aperneof a
man afraid to express an opinion
upon a public question, although
the same is being daily agitated,
antil he has had time to learn
which way the political band
wagon is travelling, then, when
he is certain of that, whether it
be dispensary or prohibition he
will jump on and crowd the
driver off the seat.
That is the trouble with many
public men in this State today,
they. have not the honestly to
give a candid expression, they
will wait as does Mr. Ansel to
find out "what may transpire to
change the status of the liquor
see a leader of thought occupy
ing the gubernatorial chair, and
not a little politician whose ear
is constantly to the ground lis
tening for public sentiment, and
this, we cannot have as long as
the people vote for men who are
without fixed principles other
than office getting.
We hardly think the friends of
Mr. Ansel, if they will think a
moment, will be gratified wiLih

Base Ball at Forestor.
Editor The Mannint Times:
The Greelyville base ball team came
to our little town Thursday to cross
bats with our boys. At 4 o'clock play
ball was heard and the game opened
with Greelvville at the hat. Both
teams playedl good ball. Frrestou had
it going her way up to the sev
enth inning, the score being 4 to 0 in
favor of For-eston, when Foreston lost
her holt and bunched cr-rors thick and
fast. allow i:ng the first Greelyville man
to cross the plate. When the nine in
nings were ovri the visitors had wou l
by a score of 6 to 5. MIr. Robt. 31ayes, I
o Mayesville, umpired the game. The:
attendance of both Foreston and:
Greelyville was good, the rooting on
both sides was something huge. Every
thing passed off pleasantly.
By the way. I notice in the last issue
of your valuable paper, an article from
Greelyville over the signature of "1Ob
server," giving an account of the game
of ball played at Greelyville on the
23rd, ult. Our boys went down to
Greelville expecting to find a fairly
good ground to play on, instead they
found a small piece of rough, bushy
ground, containing less than two acres,
surrounded on two sides by corn about
shoulder high, and on the other two
sides by rough woods thickly covered
by high timber. In one corner of this
little piece of rough ground they had a
diamond laid out SO feet from base to
base, with pitcher's box 55 feet from
Our boys are accustomed to playing
on a good ground properly laid out,
and did not care to play on any such
diamond as mentioned above, so they
told Greelvv-ille to corr-ect the diamond
or no game. After speiling a lot of
Greelyville hot alt-, the Greelyville
team decided sq correct the diamond,
they did so and the game opened with
Foreston at the bat. Any one could see
from the first inning that no matter
what happened Greelyville would win
for Foreston had ran into a mess.
M1r. Boyle and not M1r. Bosle um
pired the game. I note the "Obser
ver" says he never "saw an umpire
make decisions so fair and impartial."
Why did Mr. Observer make mention
of thie fair and impartial decisions of
the Greeleyville umpire? I have never
eard of the fair and impartial rulings
of umpires spoken of, unless their work
had been challenged, but I have often
heard of the accurate and prompt de
cisions of umpires. Doesn't the fact
that Mr. Observer was so quick to
speak of the Greeleyville umpires fair
and impartial decisions show that
there must be a doubt some where, and
in his estimation did he not think it
needed a little whitewash to help out
the doubtful situation?
First and last these two teams have
played ten games, the feathers of the
first eight belong to Foreston while
Greeleyville get the last two.
