A MISTAKEN POSITION.
Has the action of the new or
ganization known as the Farmers
Union had anything to do with
the position taken by Senator
Latimer on immiigrationY In his
recent interview, shortly after
his arrival from abroad the Sen
ator says he favors restrictinI
immigration to the extent that
he is "opposed to the State or
corporations furnishing money
to pay for the transportation of
immigrants into the United
States," but believes "our best
policy is to be content with the
natural growth of population."
He also thinks "our mills would
be better off in the long run to
let a few of the spindles stand
idle and sell their goods at the
high price they are now getting
in the United States than to run
all their spindles and take a
lower price for their products."
With a proper deference to our
distinguished representative, we
do not think his junket abroad
has broadened him in the least,
but that in his interview be ex
hibits himself as more of a
caterer for votes from the easily
inflamed ignorant rabble, than a
statesman seeking to better the
conditions of our country. If
Senator Latimer hopes to main
tain white supremacy in South
Carolina, he will do well to visit
the schools of the State, and see
for himself the advancement be
ing made by the colored race, and
then cast partisan politics aside,
and calculate how long will it be
before our oresent constitutional
protection will not serve us. He
will also do well before trying to
cater to the whims of %n organi
zation which is being led by
men who will eventually work it
for political prestige, study the
operation of South Carolina's
immigration bureau, and learn
that the purpose is to bring here
a desirable class of immigrants
who will build up our citizenship,
and to keep from allowing dump
od upon us the undesirable ele
ment that he speaks of. The
Senator's remarks are rather
surprising to us, because we
were under the impression that
he was a believer in development,
and not of the class who would
be content to "be content with
the natural growth of popula
tion," when he knows, that so
far as this State is concerned the
."natural growth of population"
must necessarily be a slow pro
cess, and that by being thus con
tented, and doing nothing for
our development we would be
heaping up the white Man's bur
den upon the shoulders of our
children, and leave . to them a
legacy they would not bless us
We are also opposed to have
among us the class known as the
"riff-raff", but the efforts the
State is making for an increase
in white populationi is not to
secure this class, and although
the Senator recently spent sev
eral months in Europe, the
greater part of his time was
spent in the cities where the
"riff-raff" huddle, to live by their
wits to avoid honest labor, but
in the interior where lives the
honest tiller of the soil, who
would, with the assurance of
proper treatmeut be glad to seek
a new home, because the oppor
tunity in his native land for de
velopmeut is restricted on ac
count of over population, it is
-different; there the Senator will
find peoples who know nothing
of the ways of the "gutter
snipes" and "celler-dogs" of
Liverpool, Venice, Hamburg,
Paris, London, and the other
-crowded cities recently visited
by the government junketing
party, the people born and rear
ed upon the farms are of the
stock from which our best Amer
ican citizenship sprung, and
they are worthy of our best
efforts to induce them to be of
It is the heighth of folly to
say it would be better for the
spindles in our mills to stop to
wait for a high price for their
products, we might as well urge a
"rest cure" for farming and
merchandizing, let everything'
become stagnated until every
thing is consumed before start
ing work again.
What's the matter with the
prices of manufactured products
now, are they not higher than
ever before, and is not the de
mand growing more and more?
No the trouble is the Senator
lives where the organizers of the
Farmers Union are, and he im
agines this organization will
spread over the country as did
his "Ocala platform," "and he is
holding himself to take their
views, if the thing goes, should
it howeuer fall flat and opposi
tion to South Carolina's plan of
securing immigrants is popular,
there is in the Senator's inter
view enough room to side-step.

A NEW TRIAL GRANTED.
The Columbia Record seems
to think ou. comments on the
conduct of the Blair case was
unwarranted, and did the at
rornevs for the defence a grave
wrong, all because we gavc it as
our opinion, based upon the pub
lished report of the trial, that
the defendant's attorneys were
too certain, or rather they were
over-confident of an acquittal,
and they did not exercise that
great caution and care they usu
ally do in cases of such gravity.
Possibly the Record is right, we
should not have attributed the
woman's conviction to over-con -
fidence on the part of her at
torneys, and now that Mrs. 3lair
has been given a new trial her
case becomes of more general
interest, and the conduCt of it
will be watched the closer. We
hare no interest i the case one
wa ranother excpt the in
terest of com on fairness, and
notwithstandin.g the Record's
opinion that we niust have been
half asleep when we read the
testimony in the case, we say
Vet. there was a very reasonable
doubt in that testimony which
should have been given to the
prisoner. The doubt, was not as
to who tired the shot that did
the killing, but as to that shot
be.ag tired with murderous in
tent. We believe there was a
scuffle over the possession of the
pistol, the woman trying to keep
her husband from getting it, and
in the struggle the weapon was
accidentally discharged, whether
our theory is correct or not.
there was a very strong substan
tial doubt of the woman's inten
tion to shoot her husbaud, and
in the interest of justice, we are
gratitied Judge Johnston has
given her another chance to es
tablish her innocence.
