THE COLUMBIA STATE'S FRENZY.
There is no use going into hys -
teries over the verdict in tie Far
num case as The Columbia State
is doing: the case was tried in
the courts of Richland county and
a jury sworn to go by the law
and the evidence rendered their
verdict, that verdict settles the
controversy so far as the practi
cal effect is concerned. and unless
The State is prepared to show
that the jurors did not do their
duty as they saw it. it must ac
cept their action as inal. There
is no one more anxious than we
are to bring the grafters to jus
tice. but if they are to be brought
to justice by the purchase of tes
timony. as seems to have been
the policy of the State, then we
say the jury did just what a ma
jority of the juries of the State
will do-place but little stress
upon the testimony of traitors
whose evidence was purchased
by the State with the promise of
immunity from prosecution. Then
too. that jury, according to the
published statement of one of
them. was not satistied that it
was proven beyond a reasonable
doubt that Farnum had bribed
Wylie, notwithstanding Wylie's
confession. There is no doubt
that Wylie received money
through Samuels from Farnum,
but there is no proof the money
was paid as a bribe: it may have
been paid. as a rebate and as we
understand the Judge's charge a
seller has a right to give a re
bate to an officer and be is not re
sponsible if that officer makes
corrupt use of that rebate. If a
rebate was given to Wylie, and
Wylie did not turn that money
over to the State he stole that
much of the people's money and
should besent to the penitentiary.
Then again the evidence of a self
confessed thief is a very unsafe
proposition for jurors to handle.
A man that will steal as Wylie
has confessed to have done, will
Dot hesitate to lie, especially
when his confession has been
purchased with the promise of
immunity if he furnishes evi
dence against those who were ac
cused with him in crime.
Now let us be fair, and not get
spiteful because a jury did not
render a verdici, according to our
own idea of justice, and give
them credit for honesty; study
the Judge's charge and all the
way through it he gave the jury
-the law, and all the way through
it will be seen that a jury has no
right to render a verdict to grat
ify popular clamor, but they must
render a verdict accordling to the
law and the evidence. We as
sume, until thecontrary is shown.
that this jury did what they were
sworn to do.
What was Farnum's crimne? He
was charged with bribing Mr.
Wylie, does the evidence
show that Farnum did the brib
ing, or does it show that entrust
ed officers of the State of South
Carolina had a system of hold
up, and forced those doing busi
ness with the State to pay them
r a rebate. It looks to us from
what came from the mouth of
Mr. Wylie,that Farnum in order
to sell any goods to the State,
was forced to comply with the
demands of Mr. Wylie and his as
sociates, and if anybody should
have stripes put upon them, it is
Mr. Wylie and his gang of pilfer
Attorney General Lyon deserv
es great credit for his earnest ef
forts to bring to justice the men
who stole from the State, and we
yet hope he will be able to land
in the penitentiary the thieves.
but we are not of those who would
convict a man because he is ac
cusr nor would we convict to
make or unn~ake any man's poli
tical future. We do not think the
Columbia State should be so se
vere on a jury whose conclusions
were different from what the
State had hoped for, that jury
is not by itself in such a con
clusion. There is a wide differ -
ence of opinion whether the pros
ecution made out a case against
the accused sufficient to warrantI

Judging from the editorials in

that do not reflect entirely the

so far as this newspaper is con
cerned, it will giye expression to
matters and things as it sees it,
and will not concede to the State

possessed with a superior intelli
gence. nor a superior nirtue.
When a prosecution reaches
out and tinds the persons who
robbed the State, whether they
bought whiskey or glass. the ju
ies should convict, but, when the
self-acknowledged thieves under
a promise of immunity, and the:
detective work ot a political op.:

A BREACH OF CONFIDENCE.
The recent trial in Columbia
not only disclosed a bad state of
affairs with certain State officers
but it also disclosed a condition
which should not exist in .t
bank. The supposition is that
business in a bank is a conti
dential relation, and when one
of the officers voluntarily as
sumes the role of detective and
exposes the bank's transactions
with its patrons, that officer is
not fit to have the confidence of
business men The cashier of
the bank of Chester who marked
a bill that he had paid out, and
then exposed the depositor has
not helped himself in the estima
tion of the business world, espec
ially when it is believed that
city politics prompted the act,
and that his conduct was not
prompted by a desire for th-e
public good. Did we have a go -
erning position in that bank- at
Chester we certainly would ask
for the resignation of Cashier
Gage. because ordinarly the ex
posing of a patron's business by
the officers of a bank might
lead to damage suits, not to say
the destr^ction of the contidence
the patrons should have that
their business relations are con
THERE IS DANGER AHEAD.
It is our opinion there will have
to be an over-hauling of our reg
istration laws, before trouble sets
in. The recent confusion in Dor-I
chester county is a pointer whichl
should make the law makers sit
up and take notice, and tighten
up loose places in the law before
serious trouble arises. Unless
something is done the State will
find itself in an embarassing con
dition, and especially will this
be the case with the congression
It is no new thing for men to
take advantage of the executionI

things do not go as they wish,

Senator Tillman is disposed to
laugh at the State officials: in an
interview with the Columbia Rec
ord he said: "It was amusing to
him to see how little the State
got out of bamboozling Wylie."
The Senator does not seem to be
in sympathy with the movement
to prosecute the men who betray
ed their trust to the State.
We see no need to become
alarmed because of the slight
slump in cotton. The condition
is not natural, and thle price will
not only get back, but in our1
opinion will go higher. Every
indication is for a still higher
price, but our advice is. to mar
ket the staple until all debts are
paid. It is too risky to hold cot
ton when prices exceed 12 cents.
but the man who is not in debt
can afford to take the risk and
we feel sure he will make money
A sensation was sprung bya
by a Louisville liquor concern
voluntarily offering to return to
the State $30,000 due the State
for overcharges. The strange
part of it is, the State had no
claim against this concern, as
what business the old State board
ad with them had been settled
before the dispensary went out of
business, and why this concern
s~ould now voluntari'y come for
ward and offer to give up this!

tery, unless perhaps they had be

>r CtovKa AYN VTCH.-Preparation
c- of the land: A good seed bed is nee
. essary for these crops. The land
should be plowed and thoroughly
pulverized with a tooth harrow and
' for the improvement of the land it is
11 best to turn it a few inches deeper
than it has been previously plowed:
but when the land has been turned
in order to prepare it. if good rains
r do not invervene between the prepa
ration of the land and the sowing of
the sead. a roller should be used to
d firm the seed bed.
O Clover and vetch can both be sown
7. in corn and cotton at this season of
the year. If the fields are fairly
clean. -ow the seed broadcast and
run a barrow or sweep through the
middle. We have seen good crops
r grown this way the past winter. If
. pea stubble is to be used for sowing
clover or vetch it can be thoroughly
e pulverized with a cut-a-way harrow
it and a tooth harrow and will proba
. bly make a better crop without be
e ing turned.
FERTILIZEtRS.-The best fertilizer
for clover or vetch is stable manure.
e This should be well rotted and ap
11 plied sometimes previous to sowin:
the seed, if the best results are to be
secured. 30 to 400 pounds of Acid
Phosphate. 16 per cent. Acid and 4
1 per cent. Potash, called a 16-4 Acid,
it per acre should be applied at the
a time of sowing the seed. IT the land
!t seems to be at all sour, and in nearly
ton of agricultural litne, 1,000 pounds
of air slack lime per acre. The best
time to sow the seed for crimson
clover is as early in the fall as it can
be sown without the hot sun killing
the young plants. In the lower sec
tion of the State it is generally best
not to sow until the last of Septem
ber. Vetch can be sown with good
results almost any month from the
I1st of Septemnber to December.
SINC-CULATXo.-One of the most
e important requirements for crimson
r- clover and vetch is that the soil
IX should be inoculated. In the Pied'
- mont section of the State stable
a mnanure very often furnishes suffB
.I cient inoculation for a sure crop, but
d' the surest plan is to inoculate the
is soil and one of the best ways to do
'4 this is by securing soil from some
.' field where a crop of the kind to be
~planted has been grown successfully.
5 Th e more soil the better.
SThe Department of Agriculture
d will also furnish inoculation which
wnen directions are carefully fol

AMOUNYT OF SEED.-About 20 lbs.
Sof crimson clover seed should be
sown per acre and 20 to :30 lbs. of
vetch seed. It is a good plan also to
sow with tha vetch seed some rye.
The seed should be sown broadcast
and lightly pushed in, ushing noth
ing heavier than a tooth harrow.
