Rev. V C. Illokson, a Baptist Minis*

on Saturday and debated with Senator
Tillman the liquor question. Tl Imaii
presented his side llrst with calmness
and force. Mr. Ilieksou ros|ionded
with very great ability and in capital
temper. Ilul tin- Sonutor had twenty
minutes in reply and resorted to per

spending too much money, and all the

There is something misleading in the
estimates of 3J mills laid on our county
to pay interest on rail road bonds. This
will raise doublo tho amount necessary
to pay the interest. I guess our county
is using the balance ol this money in
ordinary county expenses. As ibis
inoney is assessed for LtiiilrOild debt--, it
by all moans should go into a sinking

RDITOK bAUKKNS ADVKKTISKK! As
fannoi'.s wo have sadly experienced that
our contract system is a failure, lending
alike to demoralize the employer, a
well as tho employee. Wo are awaro
that any agreement must b$ equally
binding <?n the pat"! of ?ho employer, a^
well a-> on the part of the employee.
This is as it ought 10 1)0. No fair
mindod man oi'sot Of men wish to bind
any ono in a ono-slded eon tract, giving
the employee all the advantage, ami all
we ask is an ilgl'COinont that gives
both sides equal protection, which as
matters now stand Is very unequal.
Who thinks it just for A to hire a man
or lamih the ilrsi of January, feed and
clothe him, Und feed and lodging, rent
lands, buy fertilizers, and make ar
rangciucuts with his factor for money
or prov isions and clothes for the year,
and when Spring time comes your man
or family become disstltisliod and leave
you to the mercy of what? .Instice. I
heat* some one say as. over a 'phone
in poor condition and in the heat of the
day. Try tin law! Now. Mr. Kdilor,
we poor farmer-, have lost so many bills
of goods, purchased for parties as
above described, lost rent, crops, etc..
10 furnish the eoitniy laborer.-, to keep
up tho chain-gang, to work the high
ways of the county, is it wonderful that
we have cried out tor a two-sided con
tract law? I for one. Mr. Kdilor, want
to know plainly and unmistakably
where I -land in t he premises. The
above described conditions apply to field
laborer-, and wages hands, I have found
to my sad experience (hat there is an
other class of laborers, known as do
mestic female laborers, who have no
provision of enacted law to on force
their contract. Now. Mr. Editor, I have
a^ high regard for tho female sex as
any man. and I think the farmors gen
erally ha ve t he same high regard for
them and I cannot soo why it is not
^is just to punish them for failure to
discharge their domestic obligation.
Some one says that there is nothing de
pendent upon a cook, washer-woman,
milker, etc.. to leave their employer.
How about dependencies or obligation
in the case you have a cook and your
wife is an invalid or you have sickness
in the fami'y. Doesn't it appear at
once that there is as much, if not more,
dopcndlng on t his class ol laborers.than
on Held hands? I will say in behalf of
our noble solf-sacrilicing over-work-d
women, that if tie- lords of creation
have not the proper regard for them in
procuring not n despotic law, but one of
just ice and mercy to enforce the con
tracts with their hired help. Stud)
men ought to bo prohibited from hav
ing wives to attend their domestic
wants. Another evil we have to
complain ol. Is the pernicious habit of
advancing inonc,> on contracts. To ob
viate this evil, wo ?night to enact a
law, requiring that the date on which
contracts arc indexed in the Clerk of
Court's Ollleo, that the rst indexed
contract shall lake precedence overall
other contracts, and that there shall ho
no legal recourse o> recover moneys ad
vanced on contract-:. As to the punish
ment ol tho violators oi contracts by
farm laborers and doniOStic laborers,
the punishtnen' sliall be the same, and
both commensurate to the uncxph-cd
