The case of B. K. Drakeford of Sil

laws, was decided last week in the
Supreme Court, and the circuit court
was sustained. Mr. Drakeford was
convicted last fall and sentenced to

he appealed to the Supreme court and
lost his appeal. This means that he
will have to serve his time.
Clarendon's vehicle tax law was
decided last week in the Sul ne
court to be constitutional. The .w
was repealed this year, but since the
Supreme court's decision declared it
constitutional before it was repealed,
those not paying the tax last year
are due tq pay it now. A good many
paid, and was promised by Supervisor
McFaddin that if the law was not
constitutional he would refund their
money. Now, to be fair to the ones
that paid the tax, it is up to the
Supervisor to collect from those that
did not pay.
The tobacco situation is in quite a
muddle in Manning. On last Satur
day Mr. R. D. Clark closed his ware
house out to the Co-operative Mar
keting Association, which left Mann
ing without a warehouse as the other
three had already been sold or leased.
Upon learning of the situation, a
citizens meeting was called yesterday
to devise some way of handling the
unsigned tobacco this year. A com
mittee was appointed to confer with
Mr. C. R. Sprott, who has leased the
old Harris warehouse, and if failing
there to go to the Association and try
and get one of their buildings. This
committee will report back to the
citizens on tomorrowv afternooa at
six o'clock. Now, here is the situa
tion as we see it. There is, we arc
told about fifty per cent of the Clar'
endon tobacco unsigned, and the busi
ness people figure that it will be very
unwise to let this tobacco go to some
other market. Times are hard and the
town needs every dollar it can get,
but by having no warehouse here,
Mannmng wvill lose probably a quarter
million dollars. Sumter will have
two independent houses, Greelyville,
Olanta and Lake City will run, which.
means our tobacco wvill go to one of
these places. We believe every bnsi
niess man in Manning is in sympathy
with the asociat ion, at the same time,
they wvant to see one indlependent
house in Manning this year in ordler
to keep our money at home.

J & GROGAN,*
Editor Manning Times,
I am asking for space in the col
umns of yqur paper to, briefly explain
my position in the- marketing of the
tobacco crop of Clarendon, and I am
writing particularly to the Indepen
dent tobacco growers. As you all
know I have advocated open ware
houses, for this year. I have stated
that I thought this would be the best
method of selling - tobacco, and
especially for the average man this
year. I have recently changed my
mind, and have cast my lot with the
Co-operative side of the question.
It is a known fact to the people of
this County and counties contiguous
to this market that R. D. Cothran and
I were to have operated an indepen
dent house jointly, but as stated above,
I have changed my mind in this par
ticular and have decided after care
fulful consideration of this vital ques
tion that the Co-operative side has
the most merit, hence my decision.
Now I know in justice to R. D. Coth
ran that I must exonorate him from
all blame in my actions in .this mat
ter. Mr. Cothran held out firm to
the last that we should carry out our
contract with the independents, there
fore he is not to blame in the least in
'Yours very respectfully,
R. D. Clark.
Editor Manning Times,
My Dear Sir:
Please give me space in your paper
to explain briefly my position as re
gards the open market for the sale of
leaf tobacco. It will be seen in an
other place in this paper that Mr. R.
D. Clark and I have dissolved co
Now, gentlemen, I still stand right
where I have been all the time about,
this proposiJon. I am not going to
join this association this year. I have
gone up and down this county and told
the growers my position in this mat
ter I have written my views which has
been published in this and other pap
ers. I have done this fearlessly and
open and above board. 1 have only
exercised my God-given prerogatives.
I know that' my views are the views I
of thousands of bony-handed sons of
toil in Eastern South Carolina. I am
not going to abuse the so-called Co-|
operative movement or those that are
trying to foster and put it across, but
I want to put them on their guard
that we have rights in this tree land'
of ours, and that we have the courage I
of conviction to assert those rights.
I may not have the chance to carry
out my promise here in Manning that
I have made to the Independent to
bacco grower, but if I do not succeed
in getting a warehouse I will locate
elsewhere, and then notify all the In
dependent growers. I will fight as
hard for you wherever I locate as if
I were in Manning, and in the mean- I
time we may get a house here. The i
business men of Manning want it. 1
Now in the meantime stand firm and
do not sign this contract this year
unless you want to. Do not have y
people dictate how you shall dispose
of a crop that you have grown by
sweat of your own brow and some of
them never worked a whole day on a
farm in their lives. God pity us in
South Carolina, when we get to the
place that we lose confidence in our
selves. God pity us when we swallow
a thing just to please radical ideas
of others that doesn't coincide with
our own conservative views. Let our
motto be watchful waiting, look be
fore you leap, do not swallow the bait;
it has a five year hook on the inside.
Yours for stand-patness, until we are
all convinced. I am going to get a
warehouse in Manning, if any chance,
for you all. If I can not 1 will let you
know wi- re I locate.
R. D. Cothran.
