A Strong Letter.
Summerton. S. C. Nov. 22, 1913
To the Editor of the Manning
Times:-Several weeks ago, a promi
n nent business mao of the town of Man
1 ning requested the writer of this arti.
Y ele to locate in Manning, and advancee
as his reason, the following, to wit:
1 (a) He claimed that the town of Sum
Y merton is a mere rat-hole and that the
writer is a prophet and patriot witbout
honor in his own country and is wast
s ing his efforts to promote the commot
(b) Ho alleged further that the towE
of Manning is dead and mu-h in need
r of a patriot to arouse the people frotw
S their lethargy
For the benefit of the aforesaid Man
ning citizen, I take the liberty of quot,
ing herewith from a letter received
during the present week from a prom
Inent member of the United States
Senate, as follows. "I know you are a
mAn of education. for your letters show
it, and your name is a guarantee oi
having been bred with high ideals, and
I am satisfied that you are one of the
f,-w m, n in South Carolina today whc
dicuss public questions with the
slightest degree of intelligence."
t Now, Mr. Editor, I take it as gener
ally admitted that you conduct the
; ablest and most independent county
. newspaper in South Carolina, and in
. consideration of the statement of the
Manning citizen and for the benefit of
the common uplift. I desire to state
herewith some of the advantages and
disadvantages in residing at Summer
Bounded on the north by Sumter,
11o1unde-d ou the west and south by the
Sautee River. and bounded on the east
by Manning, the town of Summerton,
South Carolina, is the center of the
greatest agricultural region or section
in the world; equally as fertile as the
lands of the Mississippi valley and as
suitable to agriculture as the lands of
Marlboro or Orangeburg counties in
this State, the farming community
around the town of Summerton sur
passes either of them In the matter of
variety and adaptibility; a mixture of
clay. %and and lean constitute the cniel
eiements of our soil, and peaches, corn,
apples, peas, grapes, pomegranites, to
matoes and potatoes, each and all of
I them actually grow, hear fruit and
flourish to our satisfaction from year to
Without hills or mountains or gul.
leys, without need of terracing or irri
gation, the farm lands within the
boundaries heretofore given, afrord
and furnish to the eye one single level
> stretch of welcome; dotted here and
r there with small streams or branches
of water, cattle may flourish as though
upon a thousand bills; the hand of God
ftshioned these noble farming lands
atd invited tbe farmers to milk and
honey and green pastures. rbe moth
er of several Governors of South Caro
lina and the local habitation of some of
the most intelligent and industrious
frriers of the world; the farming com
munity around and about th~e town of
Summerton invites comparison and
awaits the coming of an equal compet'
But with all these gifts of God and
wi h all our proeperity, it behooves~
th. farmers and all of us within this
favored section of Clarendon County,
to look within and about ourselves,
and take an inventoryv of our needs,
siorteomium.s and imp-rative duty dur
ing these latter day'i of the year 1913,
and these I shall proceed to relate, as
follows, to wit:
(1) The people within and about the
town of Summerton are in urgent need
o f bestet railro,.d facilitie-s and con
nectiuns; the town of Summerton and
the town of Manning and the town of
Pinewood should be connected by an
electric railway line and there is sumf
nient water power in the Santee river
to move the machinery; the Seaboard
Air Line Railroad should hasten to
make proper connection from the city
of Sumter through the town of Sum
mrton tb the city or Charleston or else
connect the city of Fiorence through
the towns of Manning and Summe-ton
with the boat lines now operating on
the Santee River.
(2) The farmers in and around the
town of Summeroon nut only need, but
dmand bestter credit and bankingi
facilities; the Bank of Summertot
located hero is a splendid institution
and stretches every nerve to meet the
conditions, but many farmers in this
sectionf wi h good collateral must go te
Sum or or M'ianning for ac.-ommudation,
-wnen the Bank of Summerton could
have the business for the asking, if it
.would only increase the capital and
I assets of the Bank and place itself in
more sympathy with the farmers and
commcunity generally; a few bankcrupt
and butt meat merchants on the direct,
orate will ultimatety destroy the use
fulness of tbe Bank of Summerton and
etrange the progressive element of the
community; I am satisfied if the capi
-talists would establish and operatea
rural bank here with a capital stock ol
- 100,000 and give personal attention tt
the conduct, of some, and get, in sympa
t .y with the farmers of the commu
ni, by granting long-time loans utpoz
a reasonable basis, the venture would
prove a veritable gold mine, since i
i a well known fact that tbe bauket1
ano money-lenuera of Sumter and Man
2 niug are nutniug more nor less thbat
Susury brokers. and if Summnero is U~
9d velop along the same line, then God
Shave mercy on the farmers.
- (3) The farmers and their wives are
B practically without, any mercantile ac
r comodations in this section and thern
should be established at tuis poini
I whout, f..rtrner delay a joint, co-oper.
2 ativ mercantile establishment, witl
some man of means at, the bead of it
wtn the farmiera of this section at
- stcknoiders; a man cannot pureniast
for love or money a decent derby hai
or overcoat anywhere in this com
munity; several days ago, a farme:
leaving several members of his familj
sick in bed was compelled to drive ov.
er to Manning for a can of oatmeal for
,his s' k 0 es; a fe w weeks ago, a lad:
of my acquaintance seatenead ever:
"store in this to.vn for some diaper liner
Sfor her babies and none could be found
the but meat merchants do not appeal
'to desire the trade of the white pe-ople
at ..11, but seem to be satis.fied with ti,
.Neg ro sien business, the result beina
. a ur wn.,hite omen go to Sumter io
their dress suits or else send to New
York or Baltimore for them.
(4) The farmers around the town of
Summerton should co-operate more
freely and fully and should immediate
ly form a society among themselves
with that in view; said society should
own a joint bull and bear and jack and
the people who do not belong to said
society should be made to pay for the
services of said jack, bull or bear: and
saio society should forthwith devise a
progress.ve mettod of distributing and
cultivatinig better planting seed; better
schools could be maintained in this sec
tion if the balf-st;arved private schools
were abol:.h' d and the patrons made
to co-oprate with some central high
jschool of good standing. with good
tt-ehers, and the county superintend
ont of education should give his im
mediate attention to this phase of the
school situation: the State or the Coun
ty should furnish all school books at a
nominal rental, and teachers should be
instructed to require their pupils to
use the old-time slate and pencil in
lieu of expensive scratch pads, which
have become an outragreous expense to
poor parents; the farmers do not read
enough good booles and magazines. but
take too much cheap literature and
whiskey advertisements; the privies in
this section are an abomination,in some
cases the white man and the negro us
ing the same privy, the result being
that hookworm abounds; it is difficult
to find a bathroom, with a tub of suffi
cient leugth for a farmer to stretch
himself, the result being that skin dis
ease of various kinds are prevalent;
the patent medicine venders are an
enemy to the people and the ordinary
country physician is a carrier of disease
in lieu of a healer of disease, and in
many instances entirely too intimate
and familiar with the women, espec
ially the married women, much to the
annovance of nusbands; the farmers
purchase too much chemical fertilizers
and are negligent in the matter of
growing winter crops and maintaining
the proper fencing for hogs, cattle, and
sheep, with the view of saving the
droppings from these animals and the
waste of various description on the or
(5) The farmers and the people in
geural of Summerton and t larendon
County demand better laws and the
better enforcement of existing laws;
the farmer shoula have a lien for all
advances made o a tenant, without a
writing of an) kind, in order to contro
labor: farmers should be better pro
tected from the trespassing domes:ir,
fowl. including the goose. chicken and
guinea, since the writer knows of
whole crops being destroyed by the
fowls of adjoining neighbors, without
the farmer having any legal remedy or
protection, and the Legislature of
South Carolina should immediately
pas- an Act to meet this deplorable
condition of affairs; the rivers and
streams and lakes of this section are
practically without any fish at all, ow
ing to illegal trapping, dynamiting
a, d seining; the average Magistrate of
he law is a great enemy to the farmer,
by standing in with the buttemeat
merchant and illegally arresting the
ahorer- for de-bt; better roads and
bridges should be constructed ann the
County Supervisor s.hould investigate
the use oif cement in building public
roads as is now done in Michigan and
the continued use of the plank or board
bridge over our streams should be pro
hbited by law and brick or cement
culverts substituted; a segregation land
law as advocated by the Editor of the
Progressive Farmer should be enacted
forthwith in order that the majority
of the white people of a given com
munit' couid prevent the sale of land
to negros in said community, since the
town of Summerton is fast becoming an
ordinary negro settlement-, there being
in 'his town certain dirty white men
who prefer to sell land to negros; but
the greatest of all enemies to.the farm
er is the average crooked politician
and it now appears that most politi
cans are crooked; the people of this
county being hone-st voters should de
mand that all primaries in this State
be placed immediately under the same
legal restrictions as pertain to general
elections, in order to protect them
selves from railroad domination and
crooked politicians, who avowedly in
tbe name of the poor white man, but
really in their own crooked interest,
do not wish fair and honest primaries
in South Carolina.
() The town of Summerton and sur
Irounding section are overstocked in
the' watrer of churches an-i the peo~pl'
are being there by impoverished and
improperly instructed; in the town of
Summerton, with a white population
of not over five hundred, there are five
different denominations. each endeav
oring to maintain a half-starved con
greation and preacher, whereas one
goo t, prosperous church in this com
munity would really place the c-ause of
Ireligion on a better footing; Pinchot
and Roosevelt and other able men in
he East and North are giving this
question of single church combinations
in small communities very serious con
-sideration and the proposition is being
placed into practical operation in some
Instances with great success and the
p-ole of Summnerton should give the
matter thoughtful attention; one good
chmurct in a sm-ll community, furnish
-ing instr-uct.ionst through lectures and
moving pictures upon modern subjects
of agricuiture, sanitation and good gov
einent. would accomplish more good
for the people than a hundred bigoted
denominations: the priest and the
preacher must ultimately give way to
the social worker and creeds and de
nominations are even now dying a nat
ural death; getting into heaven is a
very poor excuse for- living; true reli
gion is a state of mind filled with rev
erence for God and in addition thereto
-a code of action consisting in doing
unto others as one would have them do
u'-o him. "Inasmuch as you have done
it unto one of the least of these my
little ones, you have done it unto me."
Wishing much success and prosperity
to The Manning Times, and forgetting
the things that are behind, let us all
-with one accord press forward to the
prize of our high calling in God.
