Who Will Hop The Col. Next?
Elditor The Manning Times:
I read a few weeks ago a communica
tion from Col. D. WV. Brailsfard in
which he criticised the County Pen
sion Board. I have also read his com
mumcation in the issue of the 12th, in
which he replies to two membors of
the board. It is not my purpose to get
into a newspaper controversy, neither
is it my purpose to defend the mem
bers of the board, they are able to take
care of themselves My purpose is to
make a correction of ona of the state
ments made b:y Col. Brailsford.
Now, I have a very hi:.h regardl for
Col. Brailsford, and I do not believe
Col. Brailsford would knowingly make
an erronous statement. I think he is
conscientious in his belief that there is
one Turbeville in the county on the
pension list, but he is mistaken. Mr.
Michael Turbeville, the only one of
the family in this county who served
in the Confederate army. died on July
the 4th. 1893. 1 have not taken the
time to get the information, but I do
not tlhink the State was paying pen
sions at that time: if it was I feel quite
sure, Mr. Mike Trurbeville never did
make application for a p'ension, as he
never did rereive nnythi ng from that
I would not have svritten this, but I
live among the Turbevilles and know
them all personally, and feel that, in
justice to them. the statement of Col.
Brailsford with reference to one of the
family unjustly or illegally drawing a
nension should be correctd.
D. L. GREEN,
Turbe ville, May 14. 1915.
Mr. Bainorm, ple Lse allow us space in
voor pap-:r to extendl to all of tnose
who in any way assisted us, or' offered
to assist us. and spoke words of comfort
and sympathy to us in our recent be
reavement.- May Heavens richiest
blessings ever abide withi themi.
Many were the words of deepest
sympahy, sorrow, and. comfort spoken
to us, when every where was naught
but the darkost gloom, save as we
would look toward Calvary and think
of how Hie sullered for us,
"I gave, I gave my life for thee,
What hast, thotu done for me."
This thought and the hope~ of meet
ing our darling at the beautiful gate,
together with the symnpaty of loving
friends, have hel ped to soothe out' sur
rowing hearts, and comfort us as noth
ing else could do.

Praise The Warehouse System.
A good deal is being said about a
secret organization among the farm
ers but if there is such, an organization
in thisicounty, it is not generally known
While if no such a movement is in ex
istance I feel quite sure it will only be
a short time before the farmers and
laboring men will come together, and
pull for what they conceive to be the
best interest of the whole people.
W bile Governor Manning, and Com
missioner Watson. is flaying such an
organizati(n and saying that the farm
ers should come out in the opening.
But right here I want to say that I do
not think I would be out of place,
neither off the subject, if I would say
that last spring when rules and regula
tions were being die-ssed to govern a
primary election, i;, .. .s not fought out
in the opening, but behind closed doors
until those who participated in framing
the rules that was made law at the last
session of the legislature was assured,
that they would have a majority in the
While I know some will say that
rules and regulations was being framed
that would guarantee an honest elec
tion, and this I have never doubted,
and in my mind the farmers' secret
organization which is said to be mostly
of a political nature, is for the sole
purpose of having men as their repre
senta'ives that will stand :by them at
any and alI times, regardless as to what
any man or set of men might say that
would guarantee the farmers and labor
ing people of South Carolina, an honest
return foritheir labors.
Yes, I believe, if there has ever been
a time in the history of our State, that
the majority of our lawmaking body
should ne men who are in sympathy,
and knows the desire and need of the
farmers and laboring man, it is now.
Take the State Warehouse system
which promises to be the greatest bles
sing that ever come to the aid of the
farmers, and see 'who fought it the
hardest at the last session of the legis
lature. Because, in my mind, with
other States taking up the warehouse
system and putting it in operation, we
are absolutely assured a much lower
rate of interest and better prices for
cotton, while some man will say the
warehouse system is nothing but a
political get up. but such a man had
just as well tell you that the cold stor
age in the west is worthless.
Take a man now who borrows $100,
and he gives his note for the $100, he
gets $92, which makes the rate of in
terest 9 per cent. and take the man
who borrows $1,000 to $5,000 and usual
ly be is required to leave as much as 20
per cent of this amount on deposite,
which actually brings the rate of in
terest up to 11 per cent, and this does
not include the cost of fixing the pa
pers, and I have it from good authority
that the cost of fixing the papers for a
loan of $1,000 will cost as much $50,
and the larger the loan the larger the
fees. Now let any sane man figure for
his own satisfaction and he will find
where the profits of the farmers have
been going all these many years And
take the average merchant wio has to
borrow mon as ihe sae above named,
and is it any etader ths he Is forced
to charge a bigh price for the supplies
the farmers must have to make their
crops. I think not.
But as long as a majority of our law
making body is composed of bankers,
bank stockholders and money lending
attorneys, I do not think we can look
for much relief, so let us get together
and when elcection time comes again
let us send to Columbia as our repre
sentatives from the mountains to the
sea, men of intelligence, business abil
ity, etc.. who will stand heart, head
and shoulder for what they know will
benefit the masses, and good will and
propriety to all men will prevail.
