This "higher class" is composed
mostly of mendiants, doctors and
other highbred gontleman, and
they seem to hold tho few poor
people who have Joined them in an

of Sullivans township. They arc
tho class who will light for their
rights and work for tho interest of
the sun-burned farmer as long a..
they have strength and composure
of mind and body. They do not
intend to be trampled beneath the

As to illseropanoy between Mr.
Tillman's llgurcs, Ibo comptroller
(funeral's and mino: Yon vvUT re
member Hut I stated that thc very
tow minutes which tho hurry of
tho Convention ul lowed I could not
give ligures accurately. Thc appro
priation hills ot 1870-80 eovorod il
jingos, ami to pick out ami add up
all tho itoin- scattered through
them would hnvo lakon a skilled
export much moro timo than I had.
1 thereloro stutod distinctly that I
could not say that my ligures wore
absolutely current, I said that Mr.
Tillman's statement that, tho ex
penses in 1880 to $210,000 moro than
in 1875) was absolutely ami ridicul
ously false. Thc comptroller gbn
eral, whoa culled on by Mr. Till
man to decide thc question showed
that it was utterly faino. You weie
n mo m bur of tho 11 u norn I Assembly
during both yours, and I ask you if
the statement ls not false'.' Tho
reason that my figures differed
largely from tho comptroller gen
eral's is thal wo were dealing with
di Hereat years. Mr. Tillman in tho
Convention spoko of thc year 1870
?md o feo ur so 1 got tho Heures for
the ilscal year beginning Novem
ber I INT'.'. When Mr. Tillman cal
led on thc comptroller general to
decide the question, ho asked fu
tile year ending Nove m ber l 1870,
but as the (?yuros ol' that year wore
a clear contradiction ol his state
moat I did not think it worth while
to col lect it or call attention to it.
I stated on thc lloor of thc Con
TfcWUon Hint tin; Vitt lat ion in tho
expenses Wi tho state from year tn

one should bc none ?;...?.il'.W? wU'h
Hu; matter than you. Voa haveT
boon an active member since 187U, " -
and have always taken au active
part in in attempting to cut down
expenses, i now state certain facts
and ask you lo say ifthoy arc not
i-t. Timi no money can be spent
except by authority of thc npprn
tion b'lls, except thc earnings of
thc penitentiary, expended fur its
support, and tho income of tho de
partment d' agriculture urisino
from tho privatego tux on f?rtil!/.
ers-thnt, therefore, nil expendit
ures of tuxes collected nie repres.
outed by Hie il mount.s named in
the appropriation loll.
i'd. That Ibo expenditures for thc
various departments of the Govern
ment aro not mort' than they were
in |S<0. Tho iucreaso ot clerk's sal
aries and oilier minor items being
moro than counterbalanced by ibo
r?duction of soltll'y of Lieutenant
Governor und tho turning over to
the state of (ho feos of thc compt
roller general anti other ofllcers,
(You will ic member th nt tho
comptroller general's Insurance
tees formerly exceded his suiary.
Those now go (otho Statu, while
the Idealen.int Governor received
$2,G(ii) and $10 per day during the
lld. That Ibo only Incrnsos have
t hen for the charitable institutions,
bo military internal improve
mcnls and education, and that ev
ery Increase has been clearly ami
specifically named in the bill ami
fully discussed in the Legislature,
Hie press and before Hie people.
Ith. That tho dilToronco of expen
ditures in thc years 1878-79 mid 18
80-87, as appear on the treasurer's
I books, arises dom the fact that
while about $200,000 which was
spent does not appear among the
treasury cash, it h because it was
paid in bonds which are now at a
instead ol in cash, ami should there
fore be added lo Hie cash paid out.
I nm not ono ol'thoso who hnvo
attacked M r Tillman.
I sincerely synipnthl/.o with the
movement of the farmers to ele
vate and improve the farming in
terosts of the country,
1 have been astonished at thc ig
norance which Mr Tillman bas dis
played whenever ho bas been
brought down to facts and ligares
und when 1 see that 'Milstead of
trying como to the Legislature and
going to work to mend matters he
carefully stands on the outside ?nd
abuses those who are working. 1
am loreen to tho conclusion that ho
is n humbug. I take it for granted
that ho eau come to tho Legisla
ture. There is where ovorvthlng
is decided. Cortnlnly if ho is flt to
lead tho farmers of tho V>lato be 1?
competent to bc a leader in the
Logfsluturo in which the farmers
aie in a largo niujuiity. I bavo
urged Mr. Tillman and I urge Ur
now through your paper thntlhe
agricultural college and other en
terprises bo discussed before tho
people and lot them say what they
want. Year after your I have sala
that If farmers In tho Legislatur o
will ngroo on any measure of col
lege, or anything else, l will give
ii my hearty support, hut year af
