A SLANDER ON BEAR CREK:
esss. Editors: The Bilble says
"Answer a fool according to his foly"
and with that injunction in view, I
offer a few criticisms on the comumuni
cation or "Pine Knot" of Bear Urcek.
He certainly coold not have chosen a
more appropriate nom de plume for
the section from which he hails can I
verily believe, show more. "pine
nots," "pine stumps," -and "flint
rocks," to the square acre, than any
place that I know of... Indeed we
uigt 'say inl geography "parlance"
-that it is noted for these items enume
rated above, and last, but not least for
the ignorance of its inhabitants with a
few honorable exceptions.. .We are
not at all surprised that he had not
eard the news-doubdt. If they know
down there that Harrison has been
elected President of the United States.
I don't suppose they take aniy "news
papers," for if they cannot read "sign
bards" they ceutainly cannot read
newspapers. WVe suppose s.ome o1 his
brother "pine kno~ts" told him about
ould be "Boss" was on the other
side. No, Mr. "pine. knot," the fight
was between the farmers, "the yeo
manry of the land" and the would be
'Boss," and he was badly demoralized,
if not totally routed. As.to 'Mr. Mor
rson-he is abundantly able to repel
any such attack -as "pine knot," or
oher "sich" tr'ash may ma'ke. Mr. MI.
tuched on a "vital spdt" :when he
said, it was the policy of the demna
gogue and polit.ician to keep the mass
es in ignorance in -regard . to t'he "in
ternal workings" of that. :invsterious
science-government. . -We indig
nnatly repel the insinuation Qf "pine
knot" touching our "status" as Demo
crats, and triumphantly irefer tp our
reord in the past. He is right when
he says there is going to tilWa ~shaking
of dry bones,". and he ?might have
added a "trembling of.knies" too. It
wll be as bador worse thafn the .time
when Cap-Tilman's firseiarticle ap
predin the newspapers 'some three
ge,s" sio The days o~ the demna
geue and politician ardu-numbered,
an the farmers in allihis "broad do
-min" from the A tlantic to the lfacific,
from the Lakes to the Gulf are unlitius
and intheir might and .trength, withb
the help of Almighty Gd, have de
terminel to have their "po&itical
rights,' or know the rea-on why they
c't !e them. - We suggest to "pine
kr.o;.". that he might have etnlployed
his time mnore protif able and usefull
in swigu somne o the charges made
n MrStbeh alld. tn-conclusion we
hope tt ihantil we ever be so fortu
nate or.nsfnuate as to be elected to
an office that we will so- eniduct ounr
selves that we will be enabled to serve
for more than 'one term.'

Messrs. Editors, I have all along re
garded the call by Capt. Shell for a
convention as unaessa i l
cause a loss of timeand' oi t t the
farmer. Besides, tie farmers in their
organized state can elect officers 'that
will look after their interest in the
regular Democratic , Convention.
With the above named objections whai
possible harm can anse from the
March Convention? Haven't -th
farmers a right to meet in Columbie
or any otherplaceto discuss their need
and announce publicly their choice o
men to ll the State offices subje
to the Democratic Convention? N
one will be pledged to support th
nomination, if one is made, not eve
tes present. All this tal
about bolts, sphits, etc., in the Dem(
I cratic ranks is a mistaked idea. W
can't afford any thing of the kin

To te Dredtors of the Cotton Mill:
GtrL,x. -Please excuse my pre
sumption, but my interest in '-h
enterprise intrusted ti your care
prompts me to say now, what I waui
to say in the last meeting of stocli
holders. You then suggested that w
put our money in ai warehousefor th
present, which could be changed int
a mill building when we need it.
am not surprised that such a schem
should suggest itself to your mid
and if the success of the enterpris
depended upon the efforts of one, tw
or three, persons only it -would lb
advisable, perhaps. But in-a larg
compy 'of istockholders, 'there ar
serious objections to. it. Many- doub
the success of~a warehouse on the- sit
selected for the mill and these ar
opposed te.their money being used i
that way. If the building were Pu
in the form of a warehouse and i
became profitable as such, then ther
would arise a division among the stoeli
holders; those who 'want a factory to
its life giving' influence agaist thos
who want an ?mmediate profit on thei
investment. Were you to build in th
form of a warehouse, those who ar
opposed to it would sell their stodJ
at a sacranice, which would destro'
onfidence in the enterprise, and per
ps- wreck it. .Others .would ne
take stock in a warehouse who mighu
in a factory. We subscribed for.e

becaue we need life infused in on
