Organization of Furniers.
The farmers of South Carolina are
beginning lo see the importance of
organizing for the purpose of proteo
ting and improving their condition.
They realize that if they would lind
the underlying cause of agricultural
depression, they must begin lo in yes- ;
tigate the modes of cuitare as wei! as
the financial policy winch controls
them. This state lias live separate
and distinct agricultural organiza
tions ; thc State Agricultural Society,

Tl .c i- a sentiment among thc
farmers of some counties of thc Stale !
that many of the ills which beset this ;
vocation aro dtic lo inimical legisla
tion, Under this impression, they
have readily fallon in with Mr. I?, li.
Tillman, the originator of thc Far
mers Association From Hrst tn last,
TIIK ADVuiuisKit has seen from tho
work of this association only (lie ef
fort to build np coi lain politicians, li
wa ; ar,: for the good of formers, hut
; ho politicians.
"I nm a Democrat,''is a goo l plat
form in South Carolina, and wc oppose I
any poli!?e d action outside the Dem
ocratie organizations; If ?lie lawgi
bear unjustly upon any man in South
Catolin.'i, l"t him present his canst' to |
that party which redeemed thc State,
and redress will he given. While
TlIK AOVKI?TISKU leis steadily Oppos
ed polHical action by Mr. Tillman's
?dubs, it has nlwnvs urged fanners I
to take hold of politic' in tho rogu-i
lar way-whhnul a new organization
lo stand Itv tho democratic party
and make their demands heard. Ii
is Hie duty of every citizen to dis
cuss political measures, lt is his du
ly ns much lo inform himself on thc
finestions MS lo vote. Thc farmers
aro "thc bom- and sinew" not only
i of the State hut tho democratic par
ly, and whatever reforms .ire needed
must bc accomplished hy-them inside
tie* party organization.
It is possible thal sonn- legislation
e.mid be ClleClcd ill this State, which
would help lit" ramiers; If so, they
should see to it. that they uro passed,
lind to this cud should hold political
meetings as frequently as they desire,
and discuss frequently, not as far
mers bul citizens of South Carolina,
sovereigns i l yon will.
Hut, it is evident that there are
' oilier causes ol' depression in agri
culture, than unwise legislation, and
i for iii - correction of these, and lo
I guard more sacredly the Interests of
this class, the Farmers Alliance was
lorine I. and is Vo-day Hist, absorbing
all other organizations. Thc decla
ration bf principles, which we pub
lished sometime ago, ?9 ?nell ns com
