Iuusmuoh ns "Kn Passant bas
clearly mistaken our article, "Aris
tocracy vs. Democracy," when bo
says it "gives the great farmers'
movement fits," we are not sur
prised that he does hot understand
our position. If ho will take tho
trouble to read that article care
fully, he will find that wo attempt
ed to show the difference between
an aristocratie form of government,
or an olegnrehy, and a d?mocratie
form of government. If the farm
ers' movement means to induce
men to pledge their support to the
men selected hy a convention,
whether this convention be com
posed of eighteen, eighty-one or
ono hundred, it takes the choice
from the people and gives it to tho
/etc, and hence, ls tending towards
an aristocratic form of government.
So far as the "farmers' move
ment" is concerned, we frankly ad
mit that we have not pledged our
selves to it without knowing what
it is. If the resolutions of the State
Convention be taken us a platform,
while we heartily endorse some of
these resolutions, we cannot swal
low them asa whole. Hut it seems
that some Clubs in this County
have unanimously passed resolu
tions in favor of aft of these reso
lutions and yet the individual
momuCg:s.'-;c-\prc.ss . themselves in
favor nf measures contrary to these
resolutions. We have expressed
ourselves on every subject, so far
as we know, that bas yet been be
fore the Clubs, and if anyone has
failed to see our position oh the
"movement," they certainly know
how we stand upon these measures.
Whatever we believe to be for thc
best interests of tho farmers and
the whole State, wo will advocate
and whatever is against that inter
est will bo condemned. The tiles

Clubs from the beginning, but that

Hojiiitoi Sligh, of Newberry, in a

relating to taxed costs apply only
to attorneys costs in Krjuity eases.
Several Farmers Clubs in this Coun
ty have passed resolutions in favor
of abolishing "taxed costs" and we
have reason to believe that some of
-ihosewho Voted for the resolution
did notfcn?w what it meant. Sev
eral gentlemen have recently when
questioned on the subject, said that
they Iniendod to abolish the cost
paid to attorneys out of tho "tuxes"

TRIAL. JUSTICE'S COST.
Tl?e County Convention of the
10th passed n resolution against
paying Triol Justice's cost from the
County in erl Iii in?l eases, less than
felony or when acting as Coroner.
Now, tho Hist question that
arises is, w ho must pay this cost?
The office of Trial Justice is fur
mon' Important thai! some seem to
think. They ure conservators of
the publh pc ado, and upon their
action depend?,in a grout measure,
tho punishment of crime and sup
pression of lawlessness. We take
it, that no ?me will contend for a
moment that the State would re
quire an oilier to issue warrants
und try criminals, without giving n
reasonable compensation. Who
then, if not the County must pay
for this work? Suppose wo soy
tho party who is convicted or the
prosecutor. How- will that work?
So far as the party convicted is
concerned, we soe nt a glance over
tho criminal record of this County,
for the past twelve months, that
thc citizens generally convicted of
these petit offences ure not respon
sible for tn? cost, be it never so
little. Then on the other hand, if
the prosecutor is compelled to pay
Trial Justice for issuing warrants,
crimes wottld often-go unpunished.
Suppose a poor mun, who is not
actually able to pay a small fee, has
his goods taken under false pre
tence. This is not a felony and so
the poor mun is powerless to invoke
the aid of law. We think such a
resolution as this is unwise. When
ever our government is unable to
punish crime, be it small or grout,
We bad better abandon government
altogether. Money paid hy way of
taxes, should be used in making a
government that will afford protec
tion to all classes of citizens. Re
trenchment and reform is needed,
but not nil indiscriminate abolition
of salaries. The idea is to pay
officers Just enc lgh to insure com
petent men in oniee, and no more.
If WO cannot alford to pay for pun
ishing criminals, let us by nil
mean abandon Gov'lllCUt altogeth.
WHAT THEY ARE DOINO IN ANDERSON.
During the past week professional
business called Us to the beautiful little,
city of Anderson. AH this is the first
time we have visited that place since
tho famous HaniOtoil demonstration of
'7S, wo expected to find many changos,
Hut despite tho occasional boasts usually
found in tho local newspapers, the
changes i?>r tho better in tHo way of
handsome stores and elegant residences,
was indeed beyond our expectations.
Anderxon basa bright outlook before
lier. Iforotoforo she bas boen in need of
better railroad facilities. Having but
one road and that only a branch, (thc
blue ltidge), ber rapid progress of thc
last flow years is wonderful. We noticed
that the beautiful grover near the square,
where in '7s, tho campaign speeches
wore delivered, and the base-ball
grounds near by, are now adorned by
splendid residonce-t, dower gardens, etc.,
As is almost always the case;, the boom
thal has struck this town, and caused it
to emerge suddenly Into a full-tlodgod
city, can .bc traced to railroads. K.'pr

Although our visit in Anderson was
quito short, we had tho 'pleasure of at
tending tito opening of tho Commence?
mont exercises of tho Anderson Military
School. Thursday evening the program
consisted in original speeches from six
of thc young men of this institution.
These young gentlemen acquitted them
selves in a highly creditable manner.
Thc tono ol* their speeches was good and
reflects credit on the SObool. One speech
struck us as being particularly original
and .suggest i ve. Tho subject was "Jour

at length upon tlx; importance and in

J. M. II FIX JENS,
J. lt. WATKINS, Sec'y.
A significant phrase, "Lot us cap
ture the State," was made to nie
yesterday. Now Mr. lid I tor who
but < he democrat ie party holds con
trol of the State? Are they sound
er Democrats than they propose to
capture? I hardly believe it! are
they wiser? this is debatable! have
they less selfish ends for the pro
scription they suggest in pronounc
ing for candidates'? wc say no; if
this so called villianous party tho
democratic party needs purlying
and purging, ls it not as easy to bo
done from the inside as from tho
outside? Rspocially since the res
olutions of clubs say the dose ls to
be taken from all classes, /. c. for
mulated compound! Does the
Democratic platform or the plat
form of the Farmers State Conven
ask mon; or oller les- ? do they
both agree upon tin* Primary
mode ? we answer yes. Then the
trouble seems to be who is to nive
the dose. Those who secede from
the platform of the Farmers' State
Convention or those who secede
from the Democratic platform! Is
this not a dual mode of nomination,
and thereby instantaneously pro
ducing division. Now if this is not
so, tell me wherin we are in error
In proclaimed doctrines of the twit
platforms. Then, if correct, tell
me if this is not a new departure
in the interest of men, instead of
measures. Then again, if the cap
turers of the State make a nomi
nation for the County it will be
likewise done for the Stat?'. Now
they have taken two modes of nom
inations. To whom are they bound ?
I answer, I think, correctly, if we
fail to koop the pledges of the plat
form of the Farmers Convention,
which is in harmony with tho
Democratic primaries, we are nei
ther bound as farmers nor as Dem
ocrats. The right to the penny
here implies the righi to the pound.
Now I hop?- WC Will remember that
the Democratic party is not dead,
but is a grand old party yet, with
some faults to he pruned oil'; but if
1 am mistaken, and lt is di ad, it
deserves, and I bespeak for lt, a
first-class funeral. Since through
it we recaptured our State, through
it we cont roll the nation to-day.
Dy it we live; defeat it, and we
have a thraldom worse Dian death,
and I do not believe we will com
mit, the blunder of looping before
looking, but do as we pledged to
do, protect our farmers and keep
pace with true democracy. Oh!
says one, the trouble ls, this sug
gestion or nomination will defeal
him. Well, if il does, I have a
record which indicates my true al
legiance, both to farmers and de
mocracy, and Trojan-like, will not
be left aloin- to weep at tho funeral,
but will say if it does resurrect
a truer friend to the farmer, and a
truer democrat to Die country, I will
bi; glad, and to the verdict of the
people, nobody will bow more wil
