The General Assembly.
This aggregation will come together
in annual powwow to-day. It will think
a great deal and talk more about who
to eloot judges but during the sossions
which it will hold botwoon times the
dlsponsnry law will bo tinkered .with
mostly. Tho dispensary law is not sus
ceptlblo of amendment but manifold
attachments will bo stitched to it and
numerous intricate changes will bo
wrought in its texture.
Salaries will not be reduced, not
much. To roduce salaries would in
volvo destruction to Reform. It would
be to sow tho rich beds of Reform in
salt. Reform cannot live except it bo
Vfed by salaries. It subsists upon them
\und the higher they aro tho moru it
ithrlvos oven as ragweed nourishes
$Jwhore aristocratic wheat has been cut
idown. Small salaries may in a few in
stances bo reduced and tho underlings
who work "down stairs" in tho State
Houso may suffer but tho true blue,
wlso and exulted Reformers will not
huvo their wages lowered. Thoy could
not endure It. It Would kill thorn dead.
Look out for the creation of a few now
offices though, multiplication being a
fad of Reform.
Tho Australian Ballot has no chance
Of adoption. Roform will speak woll of
it and wrlto up a good eharactor for it
but adopt it, novor. Why? Reform is
afraid of it. It has no reassuring olo
ttiont of humbug and it takes a humbug
to attract and enamour Reform.
Tho session of the Goneral Assembly
will bo brimful of interest. It will bo
comic. It will bo a fitting sequel to
tho chrysanthemum. Gaudy, flaring
Reform will blossom. Tho Stato Is
safo. For tho time being, it will bo in

,.. In Lancaster county, this state, two
^. townships issued railroad bonds to the
' amount of $58,000. Their legality was
resisted and the townships employed
Attorney Ira B. Jones to represent
their interests. Mr. Jones was to bo
paid out of the funds raised by volun
tary subscription. Mr. Jones went to
considerable trouble and expense but
was paid only $1.'12, a sum less than his
actual outlay. Ho had then been to the
supreme court twice with the cases.
Subsequently the cases went to tho
. United States court and tho county
commissioners of Lancaster employed
Mr. Jones to represent the townships
again, agreeing to pay him one half of
the amount he might save the town
? ships. Mr. Jones was able to compromise
' ili7S<^ises saving the townships *.'10.000
but ho accepted as his fee only $12,(300 af
tor which he is said to have lifted a
mortgago of about $250 from a church,
showing of course that the said Mr.
Jonos is a remarkably liberal man in his
,'iftsjas weil as reaonable in his charges
for legal services. Mr. Jones is a very
great Reformer, who comes high
though we must have him. Tho
county commissioners of Lancaster aro
the most satisfactory clients that we
havo heard of or read of.
The tenor of the letter.-: printed in
another column seonis to be that it
will be no easy task to rive tho Saluda
side from Laurens. The reasons urged
against the proposition appear to be
thoroughly appreciated and it is likely
that they will prove even more gene
rally effective when its pleasing edge of
novelty has worn off.
On tho other hand, men of the stamp
of Messrs. Turner, Watts and Puckott
do not go off half cocked and it may be
taken for sure that thoy do not speak
for a sentiment that has no strength
in their communities. THE Adverti
ser beliovos that fishermen who drop
lines into tho Saluda from tho hither
bank will continue Laurons boys at
least until after a constitutional con
vention, and, let us hope, forover.

Dear sir:?The Advertiser do
sires to obtain tho expression of the
sentiment of loading mon, in regard to
tho proposed now county of "Groen
wood". You will confer a favor by an
swering briofly on this sheet of paper,
the quostions bolow. If you object to
answering the questions pleuso roturn
thorn. Please mall your answers at
once. A copy of the paper In which
thoy arc printed will bo sent you. A
stamped and addressed envelope is en
closed for your reply.
1st. Are you in lavor of the cutting
off of a part of Laurons county to help
form tho now county of "Greenwood"?
2d. Arc the majority of your neigh
bors, in your opinion, in favor of it?
3d. If you do or do not favor it, state
The following replies have been re
Mr. S. H. Goggans, of Vaughnsville,
1st. I am not.
2d. The majority signed the petition.
3d. Becauso Laurons is small enough
as she now stands. Because it would
cause groat inconvenience in the re
cords and land doeds. While Green
wood is a littlo nearer, Laurens is
easier to got to, having no rivers or
crooks to contend with. It will in
cur more taxos.
Mr. P. A. Austin, of Cross Hill:
2d. I think not.
3d. I do not favor it because in my
opinion taxes will necessarily bo highor
and also becauso it is more convenient
to go from this place to Laurons than
it would bo to Greenwood, there be
ing better roads and no river to cross.
Ex-County Commissioner, B. Good
man, of Cross Hill:
1st. We aro not.
2d. They are not.
3d. From tho fact that we havo al
ways lived in Laurens and don't want
to be taken from old friends that wo
would have to leave. I have a petition
in my possession that many old and re
liable citizens have signed: some had
signed the other, but have since signed
mine and say they are sorry they sign
ed theothor. I am also opposed to any
more taxes. Laurons County has al
ready benoiltted Greenwood by a Hail
Mr. W. P. Turner, of Cross Hill:
Mr. David Burnside. of Cross Hill:
2d. Do not know. A good many have
havo signed the pet ition for it. * Some
of them, on reflection, have regretted
3d. 1 like Laurens County. In popu
lation Laurens County stands lGth on
the list: That is to say, there are 15
counties in South Carolina with a lar
ger population than ours. Have not
sufficient data at hand just now to say
where it stands in regard to area, but
know that she is one of the small coun
ties. So that she has neither popula
tion nor area to spare. The expenses
?true, the town of Greenwood proposes
to build the Court House, .'Jail, etc., but
only the town of Greenwood, as I re
member it?no one endorses the prom
ise. And even if it had been endorsed
by good men, there are no specifica
tions as to buildings. Temporary af
fairs might be put up, which would
carry out the promise, and in a few
years we would bo called on to build
better ones. Bosldcs there would be a
groat deal of expense outside of those
buildings. Last, but not least, the
river. Much can be said in favor of
small counties. Hence many of them
have been made by taking some from
one county and some from another.
But of all counties thus formed, it
would be safe to say there is not ono
where a fractional part (as small a part
as it is proposed to take from Laurens)
is cut off from the remainder of tho
counties by as large a stream as the
Saluda. Surely not one when a major
ity of the inhabitants thus cutoff were
in favor of it. Some think that if we
were-cut off from Laurens County we
would be rolioved of tho Railroad Tax.
lx\o not think that will hold. If so it
would bo an injustice to the remainder
of the county. And we should bo just,
always and ovorywhore.
Hon. D. W. Anderson, ex-member
of tho House of Representatives, of
2d. Thoy aro not. I think it would
bo safe to say that four-fifths of them
are opposed to it.
Mr. F. B. Wilcut, of Waterloo:
2d. Emphatically no.
3d. I do not, Laurens County is small
enough as It is. Saluda Rivor Is, and
should be tho natural lino. No bridges
but but ono bolow junction of Reody
and Saluda Rivers to Nowborry line.
Greenwood County as linos aro to bo
run, would cause more bridges on Sa
luda, which would be expensive. In
fact too much taxation anyway?times
too hard, money scarce, cotton' too low,
too much cusscdnoss going on anyhow.
Mr. T. B. Anderson, of Waterloo:
3d. Laurons County has no land to
snare, her area being but little more
than tho minimum prescribed by law.
We have a natural boundry in Sa
luda Rivor which will provont disputes
as to boundary lines much better ban
any other that might be established.
New county linos would necessarily
divido tho lands of partios living
near tho boundry, forcing thorn to
own lands in both counties, thoroby en
tailing unnecessary burdens upon said
parties, in rocording papors, attending
courts, paying taxes, otc. Tho pro
posed, line will cat off a narrow strip
of Laurens Countys' best land lying on
Saluda and Reedy Rivers. Tho abovo
aro somo of tho objections against tho
proposed formation of the new county
Ex-County Commissioner, A. W.
Sims, of Tip Top:
l 1st. No.
3d. I opposo tho now county because
in my opinion It would eauso our tax
to bo a great doal highor and it would
throw tho Saluda rivor between
this part of tho county and the coun
Mr. Samuel D. Puekctt. of Tip Top:
1st. I am.
2d. Thoy are.
3d. I am in favor of it becauso it is
nearer and a bottor road.
Dr. Jno. B. Watts, of Cross Hill:
2d. Yob, judging from tho number
Sho signed tho petition for the now
3d, Becauso it would bo moro eonvo
niont for mo, now that I am growing
old and lazy.
Mr. W. T. Smith, of Tip Top:
1st. I uiii not in favor of it.
2d. I think not. Some aro, but the
majority are not.
3d. I do not object to Greenwood
having a new county, but I am hot in
favor of them taking a portion of Lau
rens county to help make tho now
Mr. W. Austin Anderson, Tip Top:
3d. First, because it will bo of no
benefit to the part affected. Second,
it will add extra tax to tho part affected j
I and wo are already burdoncd with
taxes I am for Lauren? first last and all
Mr. Wm, J. Anderson, of Tip Top:
2d. No, over three-fourths of tho
mon In this section uro opposed to be
ing cut off in the new county and two
thirds aro land owners who signed u
petition against it.
3d. I opposo it because I think the
taxes are nigh enough and know the
now county will increase them a groat
deal moro, 2. It will leave this fork
section hemmed in botween Saluda
river and Laurcus county. 3. I am
identified with Laurons county and Its
people and wish to remain so. I havo
jnst canvassed this section and seen
noaryl every man In it and know that
they are opposed to It for thoy have
signed a petition against it. I have a
potition in my hands now with throe
fourths of the names on it in- tho fork
up to the line.
Dr. John R. Smith, of Mt. Gallagher:
2d. No, havo only heard of one per
son being in favor of it.
3d. First, I do not think it the proper
time for entailing upon Sie taxpayers
the expenses of tho new county, for the
fact of tho "hard times" now upon us.
Second, it will cause thoso of us living
in the upper portion of "the Fork" to
go two or throe-miles further in order to
reach their Court House. Third. I am
satisfied with Laurons, her peoplo und
her lands, besides I wish to remain
among a people whom I have known
from my infancy. Tho above are a
few reasons why I will not endorse the
new county scheme, thoy may not
be of any force so far as Influencing
others but are sufflcleut to guido mo in
P. S.?-1 have learned since writing
the abovo that tho lino as surveyed,
will just leave me in old Laurons.
Mr. J. R. Owings, Owingsville:
1st. I am not in favor of it.
2d. It is my opinion that the major
ity oppose it.
'.'Id. I see that there are efforts being
put forward to take a portion of our
territory to form a new county. I do not
think it largo enough to spare Green
wood. Again when we condsidor for a
moment the county site would be at too
groat a distance. If the majority of the
county oppose it immediate steps
should betaken to counteract the ef
forts to cut it off.

We have been badly deceived in the cotton crop?it is going to- be
very much shorter than we thought/and as a natural conscience the peo
ple will have but little to buy with, so must hunt the place to get the
most and best goods tor their money.
As we have already intimated we have bought too many goods, and
rather than keep the money tied up in them for the next ti%lvc months
have decided to cut the very life out of
that we may-turn our stock into money. Everybody knows we
keep nearly all lines known to the trade.
