The Clarendon delegation is not
having "a warm time" over the Salem
magistrate matter as has been stated in
an article oublished in the Sentinel.
Doctor Woods endeavored to legislate
out of office the Turbeville magistrate
and increase the New Zion magistrate's
salarv from S100 to $300, and his con
stable's salary $75 to $150, but Messrs.
Scarborough and Dingle, together with
myself could not agree to this, especi
ally when we have the written evidence
of a large portion of Salem, that the
change is not desired. We are not ad
vocating the retention of the Turbe
ville magistrate to "pay a political
debt to certain parties," as the writer
in tha Sentinel intimates, and so far as
I am individually concerned. I am not
indebted to the Turbeville mazistrate
in the least, as I have reason to believe
he did not support me. but I am, in my
opposition to the proposition of Doctor
Woods, actuated by a higher motive,
and feel assured Messrs. Scarborough
and Dingle are also. I hope that we
are big enough and broad enough to
lay aside personal considerations when
it comes to doing a public duty. We
neither feel that we should favor those
who in the exercise of their rights
chose to vote for us, nor should we
punish those who did not vote for us.
The magistrate matter is practically
settled, notwithstanding "the assur
ance of prominent senators." which I
doubt exceedingly, for the reason that
there is not a senator who would at
tempt to intrude himelf upon a purely
local measure. There is no feeling in
the delegation over this matter, every
thing is going along pleasantly. We
can differ on matters of policy, but so
far nothing h's arisen which has
created any warmth in our differences.
As mentioned last week, Mr. Scar
borough, after a fight with the oil mill
interests, secured a favorable report
from the committee on agriculture on
his bill, "To prevent the adulteration
f cotton seed meal and to provide a
punishment for its adulteration." This
bill has not had its second reading in
the House, and when it comes up I
look for a lively fight, because the cot
ton oil mill interests are very much
interested to have it defeated. They
claim the passage of such an Act would
drive the smaller mills to the wall. and
with their present machinery they
cannot manufacture an eight per cent.
meal To do so, would force them to
ut in additional machinery that would
iminish the quantity of oil now made,
mnd the mills that crush the Peterkin
;eed would have to go out of business
dtogther. Just what there is in this
:ontention, I am unable to say, but I
im satisfied the debate will be interest
ng and Mr. Scarborough appears to be
prepared to meet the arguments. The
ollowing is the text of the Scarbor

~Th bill introduced relating to work
ng the roads in Clarendon County, the
text of which I published last week.
passed the Senate and has its second
eading iri the House, and by the time
his reaches my readers the'bill will
have passed both houses and enrolled
I also introducted a bill which
mends Section 13 of the Acts of 1903
nd which relates to the salaries of
ounty officers, so as to increase the
number of days the Board of County
ommissioners are to look after the
pubic works, from 2.5 to 501 days. Here
tofore the commissioners have been
limited to twenty-five days, which did
ot give them time enough to properly
look after the roads. and now that they
will be called upon to make a personal
iuvestigation of the conditions of the
work on roads and bridges, so as to
intelligently let out contracts for, all
work exceeding S253. I am sure it is in
he interest of economy to give them
more days with the same per diem
heretofore allowed them. In this same
bill I increased the salary of the clerk
of the board from $150 to $200. The
work in the County Commissioner's
office more than doubled in the last
few years, and in order to secure a mad~
who will give this work proper atten
tion, $200 a year is very small pay.
There is also in this bill a provision for
the treasurer's salary. Last year the
delegation did not get the treasurer's
salary in the salary bill. provided for it
in the supply bill, which must be en
acted every year, and should it so hap
pen that it is overlooked the treasurer
would be in a bad fix-he would be
without any salary. Therefore, in order
to make his salary permanent I placed
his salary at $1,000, the same *as last
yearin a permanent Act.and it will re
main so nntil the salary is increased
or decreased by future legislatures.
The first bill I had prepared for the
treausrer's salary was objected to by
the Senator from Orangeburg, on the
ground that I amended Section 760 of
the Code of 1902, and this would re
peal all the acts on this line that were
enacted subsequent to 1902, which
would affct the county of Orangeburg,
when he drewv attention to this I read
ily consented to have my bill laid upon
the table, and then with the Senator of
Orangeburg looked over the acts since
1902, and found to get what I wanted
was to amend Section 13 of the Acts of
1905, so I drew the bill accordingly,
but when it was introduced the senator
from York objected to its going on the
Calendar without reference, as he
wanted the finance to inspect it, in or
der to ascertain whether or not the pro
portion of the treasurer's salary to be
paid by the State was correct. I tried
to get him to withdraw his objection,
and told him he could correct any dis
parity by amendment, but he would
not, and as it required unanimous con
sent I had to let it go to the committee,
A visli. to our clerk of court's offie
convinced me that unless some provis
ion is made to have the ~indexes in that
ollice put in proper shape the public
interests would suffer. The books are
falling to pieces. and it willi not be long
before the written portions will be
greatly damaged. I have introduced a
bill to provide for a reindexinf of the
records so far as t hey relate to real
estate, and for this work I have pro
vided $500. There seems to be some
doubt about getting this hwork done for
$500, but I believe otherwise, and my
reasons are, that in 1SS: or 3, the re
cords of that office were reindexed for
the first time. Then every paper and
book was reindexed, which included
liens, bills of sales, judgments for
money denand, and various other re
cords, and my impression is that the
work was done by Dr. G. Allen Hug
gins and Y. N. Butler for 500. if the
records at that time, which included
everything, liens, mortgages of per
sonal property, etc.. could be indexe.l
for 100 I cannot see why $500 should
not be sutficient for the reindexinz now
when it is to be considered that only
such records as relate to real estate are
to be reindexed. I believe a competent
man can do this work and make hand
some wages. I feel satisfied the work
can be done in five months easy. and
A100 a month is not to he sneezed at by
no means. While I am convinced it. is
in the interest of the public to have
this work done. t must have regard for
the publec treasury.
The following is the text of the bill:
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the
State of South Carolina:
Section L That the records of Clarendon
County. so far as the saMe relates to
real estate. be reindexed alphabetically and
.icoraphically. under the direction of the
L., rk of the Court. and the sum of live hundred
dhllars is hereby appropriated for the purpose.
o be paid out of the general county funds, as
other claims aroinst the County are paid.
Sec.2. That the Clerk of the Court is author

the cost of said books shall also be paid for out
of the general connty fund. in addition to the
The lien law was the most important
easnre in the House this week. What
is known as the Richards b'il passed
by alarge majority. Messrs. Woods,
Dingle and Scarborough were among
the majority. It is now over in. the
Senate, but if the action of the Senate
is to be judged by what was done to
the Crouch bill, the repeal of-the lien
law will now succeed at this session.
Senator Crouch of Saluda introduced a
bill to repeal the lien law. It was too
drastic, it chopped off the lien business
suddenly like an ax chops off the head
f a chicken. I save notice that if the
enacting words were not stricken out 1
should amend tWe bill by fixing the
time for it to go into effect December
31. 190S, so as to give those who have
been engaged in this system time to
wind up their business, but ahen the
vote was taken the Senate struck out
the enacting words which of course
killed the bill. I cannot say the same
action will be taken on the Richards
bill, as I understand it does allow some
time before the law is to go into effect.
There are two sides to this question,
and both sides have good argument.
Individually, I am satisfied, to repeal
the lien law will not have the effect its
advocates claim. I believe our labor
onditions will not be improved. I
further believe it will prove to the dis
advantage of those owning lands to
reut, and as a result the lands will de
preciate in value. It is reasonable to
suppose, if the-tenant cannot get credit
te cannot rent the la-nd, and if be can
not rent the land, then he goes to the
ighest bidder- for wages. It is well
known that the owners of land cannot
afford to assume the i-isk of furnishing
their tenants, and if they did, they
must give security. If they borrow
money to make these advances, they
will be required to give real estate
mortgages, and should the conditions
ever again be like the present, disaster
would follow. The lands would be put
on the block to satisfy -the demands
against them I would hail with joy
the time when business can be done in
his country upon a cash basis, but
b'at troubles me, are we ready at ,this
time? To repeal the lien law now,
without giving a reasonable time to
arrange the business system to suit the
new conditions will be too revolution
r andi drive into the bankruptcy
ourts thousands of merchants. I voted
against striking out the enacting words
ofthe Crouch bill, not because I favor
ed its provisions, but because I wanted
to keep myself in a position to amend
it, and failing in amending I would
ave voted to kill it. When the Rich
ards bill reaches a vote in the Senate,
anless it gives a reasonable time for its
operations to begin. I cannot vote for
it, but shall vote for the repeal of the
ien law if it is not to go into effect be
The coming week will be largely
taken up with liquor legislation. The
Carey bill is made a special order in
the House for Wednesday, and in all
probability it will pass that body, un
less the State Dispensary forces form a
~ombination with the Prohibitionists
and pass a prohibition bill. The Carey
bill provides for Local Option, as be
tween Prohibition and County Dispen-.
tary, leaving it to the people to decide
which system of the~two they will have.
Senator Smith of Hampton intro
duced a resolution in the Senate pro
viding for the judiciary committees of
both houses to frame a bill looking to
the abolishment of the dispensary and
provide for local option. This resolu
tion was adopted by the Senate,. but I
am satisfied it will be killed in the
House. In my judgment- the Smith reso
lution is misleading, because it has cre
ated the impression that the Senate has
shown its hand and the dispensary is
doomed, but I do not regard the vote
on the Smith resolution as amounting
to a hill of beans. McGo wan of Lau
rens voted for the resointioni and he is
a strong State dispensary man: Talbert
of Edefield voted against the resolu
tion and he is an ardent Prohibitionist,
Earle of Oconee voted against the res
olution and he is as yet an "unknown
quantity," and so is Carpenter of Pick-!
ens. Then there were several absent,
therefore I say the vote on the Smith
resolution indicates nothing. My opm-.
ion is that the State dispensary forces
are badly scared, and they attribute
their shaky condition to the local op
tinists, to revenge themselves if they
find they cannot swing on to the
State concern, they will attempt to
make an alliance with Prohibitionists,
and thus bring about confusion and
prevent legislation. The Prohibitionist
who blocks Local Option by being stub
born, will be responsible for the reten
tion of the State machine. I believe,
however, there are enough reasonable
men in the general assembly who real
ize that the people demand a change,
and if the sincere State dispensary ad
vcates cannot succeed in enacting a
a purification law, they will join the
local optionist. The State dispensary
is doomed I believe.
The elections came off last Wednes
day, the one of more interest to my
readers, and by the way, was more
xciting, was the election of Judge of
the Third Circuit. This election re
sulted as I predicted last week, in the
elevation to the bench of Hon. John S.
Wilson of Manning. His oppenec t was
Hon. T. B. Fraser of Sumter. The
contest wvas close, bo0th gentlemen had
devoted and untiring friends. Sumter
came over to the contest with .a dele
gation for her man, but the friends of
Wilson were no novices, and without
ostentation and blowing ot trumpets
went quietly and systematically to work
for results, leaving the gentleman from
the city of automobiles-- to indulge
their imaginations and hopes. Tile
Sumter crowd was confident of success.
they were certain of a majority of ten,
bt when they heard the eloquence of
Paul Hemphill of Chester seconding
the nomination of Mr. Fraser they
lifted their eyes heavenward and pray
e d Gdwould save them from their
friends. Senator Clifton of Sumter
made the nominating speech for Fraser
onde by prerangement all over
the hall. Senator Walker of George
town nominated Wilson and after this
nomination began to be seconded by
the friends of Wilson. Hon. Paul
Hemphill rose and injected in the midst
of the Wilson seconds a seconding
speech for F! aser. Senator Rodgers
of Marlboro very nicely replied to Mr.
Hemphill's references to Juidge Fraser
and gave the general assembly to un
derstand the day for handing down
ofdices from father to son in this State
had passed and then seconded the nom
ination of Wilson. It was not my pur
pose to do more than formally second
the nomination but I felt indignant at
Mr. Hemphill's extraordinary conduct.
I could not refrain from expressinlr my
surprise and indignation to the -en
eral assenibly. The injection of Mr.
emhl)ill's s)Ceeh at the time, i in
tended as a trick, proved a boomerang.
The vot - esulted $4 to -ti, and John S.
Wilson c:as elected 'judge of the
Third Judicial Circuit. Mr. Wilson
i was not about ihe State House at ail.
Ile was sick at the home of his niece,
but as soon as possible he was informed
over the telephone Since the election
he has been the recipient of letters and
telegrams from all over the State, con
gratulating him upon his success.
Owing to the active part I took in his
race and the personil r'lations exist
ing between us I will forego the pleas
ure of putting in type my gratification
at his success. I think however I should
say that Messrs. Scarborough and
Dingle worked like Trojans and de
serve much credit for the 'result. The
people of Clarendon are much indebted
to Senator Rodgers of Marlboro and
Senator Wells of Florence for the elee
tionof Ion. John S. Wilson to the
judgeship. Hon. Walter H. Wells will
be a candidate for S:lcitor. and in my
opinion he deserves the support of
Clarendon more than any other man
who may become a candidate. In the
first place, Mr. Wells is competent,
will make a worthy successor to Wil
son. Second. he is from Florence a
county that has never had any of the
higher honors in this circuit. Third.
Florence joins Clarendon, and a good
portion of Florence was once Claren
ron. Fourth, Mr. Wells'untiring zeal
had much to do Vt' elevating Claren
don's honored son to the bench. I hope
Clarendon's will show her appreciation
by supporting Hon. Walter H. Wells of
Florence for Solicitor.

There is no question about it. Mannmng is one of
the best towns in Eastern South carolina. So
les cut up the vast estates here that are now
ying IDL E and sell resident lots to Homeseek
ers. -Let's do for Manning what J. Edgar Poag
and the people of Rock Hill nave done ror that
town. It has not been many years since Rock
Hill was the size of Manning and the vast
blocks of prlperty were then owned by a few
parties. but thave since been cut up anud sold to
any and every good white person who wante~d
and could pay for a home, and now Rock Hill is
one of the very best towns in the State. Why':
Because the people allowed J. Edgar Poag to
advertise and sell their property for them as he
thought best, and today there is not one of the
older citizens of that enterprising town to the
way that the towns property was advertised
and thrown open to the whole country by. J,
Edgar Poag. Now. we want to see Manning
grow, for she is worthy of a conspicuous place
on the map of South Carolina. so cut up your
vacant property and name us the price of each
lot and let us sell it for you. We have already
on our list quite a number of very fine lots in
almost every section of town and various classes
of farming lands all over the county that we are
now offering for sale and will be glad for parties
desiring to purchase a home whether in town or
county to. come and inspect our list _which we
will take great pleasure in showing interested
Our big 'sale that we expected to run on the
first Monday in February will be postponed in
definitely, as we are preparing to run off some
of the best property in the town and county: in
fact we expect to exhibit in this sale the best
line of Real Estate ever auctioned in Eastern
South Carolina and our propositions will be
such that every person can buy a home. so look
out for notice of this sale.
We want you to remember that we arc still
handling the best Standard Fire Insurance on
town and country property. In fact we insure

GENUIN PERUVIAN GUANO holds first rank among plant food mate
rials. In their haste to use cheap fertilizers, consisting largely of Acid
Phosiphate (dissolved rock). many farmers have, in a measure. over
look-d this valuable material. We are now directly importing and pla
ing it upon the markrt at prices which make it the cheapest as well as the
best source of plant food.
Skilful culture will avail little unless plants are well nourished, and the excess
of one clement cannot supply the demand for another.
PERUVIAN GUANO supplies ALL the plant food elements furnished by
ground bone. acid phosphate. tankage, dry ground fish, dried blood. sulphate of
ammonia. cotton seed meal. etc. These elements are already intimately mixed and
combined by natural processes, making it the
Best Possible Base for Home
For certain crops it may seem advisable to add more Potash to the percentage
contained in Peruvian Guano. either by mixing the material or by applying the
additional quantities as a side applicatlon. We are lin a pcsiiion to quote lowest
pric on the following materials, and to ship them along with the Peruvian Guano.
