nothing but right that it should be

Mr. Tatum favored the Idea, but as
Mr. Conner hai a bill which would re
Hove the farmers of this unjust tax,
he thought debate should be adjourn

This was agreed to.
Mr. Watson thought all Clemson
College bills should ho postponed until
the Clemsen investigation committee
Messrs. Bowman and Tatum hold
that Mr. Connor's bill in relation to
.he p)rivilego tax had nothing what
over to do with Clemson and aftor
some discussion Mr. Connor's bill was
taken up. It providos that the tax
,;hall bo one-fourth of one por cent, of
the commercial value of fertilizers.
Mr. Coincr hCld that the tax ias
primarlly in tended to protect farmers
by providintig for an analysis of for
tilizers. For tho last -lifteen years
the tax has alonllitod to over *500,000,
which was paid by the farmers. Mr.
Connor made tiity an extended mrgu
ment, in favor of the bill holding that
the purposes for which the tax had
been levied had been diverted front
its original purpose; it is an unjust
tax and should be taken off.
Mr. Edwards expressed 'Sympathy
with tlte objects of the bill, but
thought it was untimely. Its paisagO
now would increaso the t.ax lovv one
miil and the matter hadl better stand as
it is at. present.
\iAr. Sturkie couldn't understand
why the tax should be centinued if it
was admitted to be unjust.
Mr. Watson said if the bill was
puassed another tax will have to be
le.ied to support this -institution.
Whore will the money come from ?
The question shinply is would farmers
rather have anl indirect o' direct tax ?

What the Sonat)s Know About Working the
Ju the Senate, an amendment was
offored to tbo county government bill
to the effect that each township should
have only one commissioner instead of
three, as at present.
Mr Arc r favored this amend saat.
Ono practically did the work already.
As it Is each will wait on the other,
and consequently very little Is done.
Mr. Moses was opposed to rushing
things. The three local members of s
the township boards were a good re
turning board, but the chairman al
wayb acted as a member of the county
board. In reality the county board Is
composed of the several chairmnh of
the township boards.
Mr. Pettigrew's experience was, that
In most cases, one man (lid the work.
The others wore more of an incubus
than anything else. Ono commissioner.
together with the auditor, would be
aniply sullcient to manago returns.
M. Maty ield wanted the aiendinent
to fail. Didn't, think one man alone
should have power to pass on the
assessments of his neighbor's property.y
One man might have in his hands the
destinies of hib entire township. It
was putting too much, power into one
mian's hands. He never wanted to see
one-mahit power estabhlshed-especially L
when the o11 man was appointed by an
ofle Iolder. 1

Mir. Jordan said his people also 1
vanted one nan-thought lie would e

THE NATIONAL FARMERS' ALLANC,
Tho Sub-Troasury Abandoni3 at a cr d
--Joining in the Fight for Sdvor.
Mr. J. W. Bowdon, of Anderson
County, was recently in attendance -
upon the annual meeting of the Nation
al Farmers' Alliance In the city of
Washington, and gives an interesting
account of what took place while he .
When asked about the National Al- I
liance meetin , Mr. Bowdon replied :
" Well, to be candid, the ineoting
was much better than I expected, both
in point of attendance and the general
condition of the organization. Seven- I
Leon States were representod and 0
several others reported, showing the
treasury in good condition, which Is a
good indicator of the life of the or
ganization. Major Mann Page of Vir
ginla, who was elected the now presi- e
dont, is a strong man and well known
to Alliancemen everywhere, as ho has
been connected with the order since
its incorporation. Mr. Southwortn, of
Colorado, the new secretary, will also
make a very competent ollicial. The
majority of the delegates regretted
very much to give up Col. D. P. Duncan f
as score tary, as his ellicient work was
highly appreciated, but it has been1
the unwritten law to divide the ofices
among the various sections represented.
" What about the politicalt signiti- 8
cation of the meeting ?"
" I don't know that it had any special
political signliicaice, but from the
anxious inquiries of Washington re
porters. it soemed that it wits expectod
to crea'.o soma kind of ia hiatus or slap c
somebody in the face. Of coutso n)
political action was taken, and the only
thing that showed a tendency to touch C
politics was some small changes of the r
domands. It scems very hard fo- some
of our Iriends to understand how an
organizaLtion can bo interested in poli
tical a ffairs and yet tako no part in
" What changes wero made in the
"Well, the only significant change
in the demands was the'eliminatiou of
the stib-treasury, and alo the (omaind i
ror $50 por capita. Theso parts of the
Jemands had come to be looked on ats
letails of legislation and did not have
) place in the demands of the farmers

'hey did originally. In reality, the

>osed of Republicans and Democrats,
,he organized I'opuiist taking no part
n it. It was determined to organize a
Iver light in every State at once. A
iational convention was called to meet
n St. Louis on July 22, the same date
,nd place of the meeting of the Popu
ist-national convention, us the opinion
s that there will be a joining of forces i
hen. A national committee composed
if one member from Ciach State was
ippointed auna a chaianan, who is Dr.
'. J. Mott of North Carolina, was put
in charge of headquarters at Wash
ington. This national conmitteo will '
snly act until the meeting of the na
tional convention when one will be
elected in its stead."
Did the South C'arolina Congressmen
attend the conference ?
ci" None but Mc Lau r-in. lie took a
very pro-minent part in the dleliber-a
tions and was on the committee that'
wrote the dechurution and resoluttions."
Will South Carolina be organized ?
"Yes, I was placed on the national
committee as representing this State,
and will proceed~ to get in touch with
all those in sympathy with the objects
of the movement. I will only act,
however, until a State chairman can

ODRESS TO REPUIBUCANS AND OTHERS.
General Conventiun of the Republican
Factions is As ei t, Heal the Breach
This is the Acceptei T.no for Victory.
The following address has been is
uod to the Republicans and their sym
athizors in this State:
'ollow eCopublicans of South Carolina:
There'is a condition of affairs in the
topubilan party in this State which
iust be met and met quickly or defeat
Pill be the result. It is the factional
isvisions in tihe party ; how they orig
Mted, or who is to blame for their
xistence, is not the question ; to heal
bIomi and unify the party is the great
uestion. Tle leaders of neither fac
ion can Or will move the matter.
'lion it is left for some one other thab
hem to do so. In the interest of
ecac, harmony and unity I shall do so
Imy humble way, trusting that my
IfOrts in this direction will meet with
ble approval of all concerned. Thero
its never been a iprospect of accessions
om the White mon of the State to the
tepublican party until now. Misgov
riment and broken pldges on the
art of the leaders of the dominant
ution of the white people, coupled
ith fraud at the last election in this
tatO, has done the work and done it
Irecttually. I have recently had mcn
the Iteform faction, who, in the last
lection were bitterly opposed to 'mo,
> come to wil aind say, " Y u werO
ght ; we aro goinmg with you into the
Opublican patI-Y." I am in a iosition
know what, is going on all over the
ate and my wurd i(o it, "the harvest
ripe" from the moantains to the
aboard. Will you throw this golderr
)pOrtunity for success away by quar
iling among yourselves and thus turn
is tido away from us, or will you
eet together and settle your ditfer
ices amicably for the good of the
,rty and its triumpliant success in
tisStato in November next?
If the lttoe, accept my proposition.
Lben looking to this end I call a con
mntion of the party to Imcet at the
ate [louse at Columbia, S. C., on
lesday, the 14th day of Apt il next,
8 o'Clock p. mu. '1Xch county to
n' double the number of deigates
its representatives in the Genemral
ssembly of the State, and that these
legates may be elected at a mnasi
keting (or convention) be held in the
spective counties on Saturday, the
th day of April, 18%, the meeting to
--o placo at the respoective county
ats. Lot the Stato convention so
lied be a peace and harmony convon
i to settle all differences and elect
State chairman, vice chairman and a
ate executive committee with poworI
transact such other business as may
necessary in the premises.
Let the platform be " honest cloc
ms and protectioc to American in
strics and labor and protection to all
e rights of thocitizen guaranteed by
c constitution of the United States."
iis is broad enough for all to stand
on. If adopted by the general gov
nment, financial relief to the coun
y will follow. Mr. Lincoln was once
ked about protection. He remarked
at lie ditd not understand the qjues
>n very wveil, but he knew enough
out it to know that If a ton of rail
ad iron was piurchnased in England
at 10ngland had the money p~aid for
and we had the iron, but if a ton was
irchased here by one of our citizens
at we had both the money and1 the
on. So it is, we have purcased more
>road than we have sold abroad,
ence the balance of trade is against
and we have been drained of our
ild anid toi get It back the govern
ent has in the last twelve months
>ld an enormous amount of bonds.
he only way to keep our industries
toving andi to enable themi to pay
.merlcan workmen fair wages is to
ut a high tariff on everything in comn
etition to us. The tatilf is not high
nough to do this ; as an evidence of it
nIC balance of trade is against us.
Uponi this latformD all cani stand.
Ve invite the Conservatives who have
cen defrauded oif every righlt to come
'ithi us. We invite the bonest Re
>rnmer, wh'io has seen every pledge
inde by his leaders broken, more of
cs created, higher taxes, places at
lomnson and Rtock Hill which prop)
rly belonged to the poor taken by the
hildren of leaders who have fat ollices,
hereby dliminishing the chances of
hie poor to enter those institutions ;
