31R. 'iILLMAN'S REPLY.
We publish on the first page of
this paper Mr. Tillmans reply to thE
letter of Col. Lipscomb. published
some time ago in regard to the far
mer's movement and the "bessing
of it, and so forth. Mr. 'iliman',
letter was sent to the News and(
Courier but as that paper had de
clined to publish Mr. Lipscomb'E
letter it also declined to publish Mr.
Tillman's reply. The reply was
first published in the GreenvillE
News last week. As to the per
sonal hits in the letters, we have nc
concern. The readers of the II ERA 1.1
AND NE:ws now have what both thesc
gentlemen have to say about eacl
other, and are left to form their owr
conclusions on that part oC the letter
As to who is to be the azricultura
"Moses" in this movement, if there if
to be one, we have no doubt that th<
people will decide that question t(
to suit themselves.
But Mr. Tilli.Ian seer.s to hav
been aiming his charges more par
ticularly at the agricultural depart
ment, than at other officials, and say4
he wants to enlarge it and make i
more efficient. The writer has neve
believed that the agricultural depar.
ment was worth to the State what r
cost the State to maintain it. but w
will only remark here, that if a lawyer
or other professional man had dare(
to open his mouth as Mr. Tillman ha.
on this subject he would have beet
M charged as the veriest enemy of th<
farmer, and as guilty of almost everi
sin in the decalogue.
Mr. Tillman wants a "real agrical
tural college." The place to learm
farming is on the farm, we still main
tain, and Mr. Tillman's agricultura
college and his board of agricultur(
will not be of much benefit to th<
large majority of farmers. Count'
institutes and township clubs prop
erly organized and managed. w<
believe would benefit the farmers
To these the farmers could assemble
talk over their various modes or farm
ing, and give each other the benefi
of their successes and failures.
The majority of the people in th<
.aare farmers and they' di
govern the State. They hold thi
balance of p)Cwer at the polls anm
it is by their vote that the Count:
and State officers and legislators ar<
cho,sen. If inefficient men have beet
--p~mt in office the farmers must blami
But Mr. Tiilman winds up by say
ing, "If any county can find a bette:
man who is not a farmer than it car
among',farmers of that county sen
him. We want the brains and pa
triotism and honesty of the State t<
come:together and take charge of' it:'
There can be no objection to thi!
test of fitness for office. WVe sayi
the convention is to meet let tih
best men go there of course.
But how about inviting others that
farmers into it ?
'-Mr. Tillman says he has some
thing of importance to offer the con
vention when it assembles, and w<
await anxiously to see what it is h<
is going to offer: Hie says it is no
called to make "a slate."
We publish this week some nmor.
opininions from our farmers on thi
farmers' movement. They are in th<
-.bout the same as what thos<
-se opinions were published las
week were. They do not favor at
raying one class of citizens agatns
another, but seem to think that som<
good may result from the proprosei
convention. We have been told thal
there would likely be a c:ill for a coutn
ty convention on saleday in April
but as yet we have heard nothiing
definite. There can be no objectior
made to the farmers meeting, if they
desire to do so, but we do not be
lieve they will receive much gooc
from the proposed convention. A
least, it will not benefit them to th<~
extent to which some seemr to think

There are certain crimes whiel
should receive speedy and certai:
punishment. For the punishment o
such offfenders the courts are seldon
ealled into requisition. The law'
delay and the many evasions of jUS
tice are urged as an excuse for a
outtraged community to rise in it
miIht as one man and inet out ster'
justce to all such o1lenders. We d
not advocate lynch law in Uny form!
but .i extrem cases it is probabl:
excusable. The only difiiculty is
that when it is sanctioned at Lll, tl
tendency is that the 1People becomn
too reaiv to take the law into th(i
own hands and admiuister it 1o

We have had several cases c

the thing is likely to become too fr(

We mention this case simply to sho
what the tendency is if lynch law i

commentary on our civilization or 0
our courts of justice, or both, wle
an outraged community feel that i

inal they must take the law in thei
own hands. We confess that ti
reading of this account in the New

to us like a travesty on our court
and justice. Th~e slowness of ou
courts in many instances to mete 0r
justice to the ofTender, is no doub
in great measure, the cause of thi
state of affairs.
A HISTORY OF SOUTH CAROLINi
Wi'e agree with our contemporar2
the Abbeville Messenger that thier
is a fine apportunity awaiting so-m
ifted son of South Carolina in th
Ipreparation of a history of this Stat
-adopted to use in our schools. W
know of no such book. and ther
is certainly great need of one. Tl
lamented A. C. Garlington, of thi
fcounty, told us on one occasion the
lhe was engaged in writing a histor
of this State. We know of non:
more competent to perform that tas
than he was. But the summons camr
and called him hence, before th
work was finished. How much of
he had p)erformned or what the gen
ral p)lanm of his undertaking was, ~
are not informed. Neither are w
informed whether any arrangement
are being made by the family to hav
the work comleted or not. WX
would be glad if some competer
man could take up the stylus an
complete the work so noblyh beg'u
If this cannot be done, let some- con
-petent and well informed man go 1
work and give us a good and corre<
history of our State.
We believe that thlis country hu
too mnuch legislation, and that ele<
tions are too frequent. We believ
it would be better to have biennit
sessions of the Legislature and ele<
-members every four years. We b<
hoeve it would b)e better for the coun
try. We searceiy get out of the e:
citement and turmoil of one electio:
before we are into another. Wihe:
