E . AULL.
At an informal meeting of the com
missioners in charge of the comple
tion of the State House, on the 5t
instant, Mr. Neilson, the architect,
stated he had corresponded witi
dealers in lumber, in and outside of
the State, in order to find where lum
ber of the quality an1 in the quantity
required in putting the new inetal
roof on the building could be bought,
and that Messrs. H. James & Co., of
Baltimore, Md., had made the lowest
offer, viz: "That they would furnish
75,000 feet of well seasoned lumber,
all heart, sawed from seasoned logs.
without having been boxed or bled,
and without being effected by wind
shakes, to be dressed, tongued and
grooved and to be delivered at Colum
bia at $28.00 per thousand. The mem
bers present, after hearing the report
of Mr. Neilson, thought that this was
the best that could be done, and one
of them told a reporter of the Regis
ter that he expected that they would
have to accept their offer; but at a
full, meeting of the board on the sixth
instant, it was decided to advertise
for bids for this and other material
before taking final action in the mat
ter. The Register, on the worning
of the 6th, condemned what we sup.
-pose it co'tisidered to be the final ac
tion of the board, and intimated that
it looked like a job. We think this
unjust to the ofmiers who constitute
the commission ai d to the architect
who brought wsithi him to our State
oW ~ highest character.
- men stand charged
piublic as being implicated
in a job, in the purchase of a small
bill of lumber that amounts to only
$2,100 at $28.00 a thousand. If the
commission should succeed in getting
the lumber at a lower price, the mar
gin for a job would be very small,
>and the Register must know the
'members of the commission too well
to entertain ser'ously for a moment
the thought of attack upon their
character; at the same time they
stand charged by them with jobbery.
Our local cotemporary, the Ob
server, in a recent issue, criticised
severely the action of the last Legis
lature, for appropriating $150 for the
Carolina Teacher, published at Co
lumbia. The Sumter Advance copied
the Observer's editorial and ex
pressed its approval by giving as a
heading,. correct." The Cotton
Tirant copiedit, and joined the Ob
server in condemning their action.
In order to save others the trouble of~
writing on this subject, we would say
that they are mistaken; no such ap
propriation was rrad by the Inst
.-For the H'ER:.u.o .u Ni:ws.
Educationr : Farmner-' Nons~ and Ihe
News- & C'ourijer.
-The News & Courier ha3 given us
three very elaborate editorials to
prove what no 'one, so far as I am
aware, had denied, or pretended to
deny; that is, first, that a fair
proportion. fifty-founr per cent. of the
-stadotr ttending the State Univ-er
sity are the sons of farmers or of
those interested in farming: second.
that three-fifths of the be-neficiarv
cadets of the Citadel Academy are
farmers' sons. and lastly, that tour
-fifths of the public school fund is ex
pended for the education of farmers'
children. As for the latter. I pre
1b'ne, and I have not heard it denied
by any one engaged in the farmers'
movement. that the public school
fund is divided approximnately-, at
least. as it should he. impartially
among all the children of the
State attending public schools;
whether white or colored. rich or
poor, the children of farmers, or dioe
tors, or lawyers, or mechanies. To
attempt to prov-e this. , whenf no one
-bas denied it. is like charging on im
aginary wind-m:iis. Very much the!
same with the attendance at the St ate
University and the Citadel. No one
denies that if' a farmer's son prefers
a to abandon the profession of his
fathers and become a lawyer, or doc.
ter or pursue a literary life, or get a
~military education, which he cannot
from thie very nature of the case fi
low up afterwalds, the State Uni
versity and the Citadel stand open to
him for that purpose, just as they do
for the sons of lawyers or merchants
or doctors or any otier class Or the
people. But I submit that the News
& Courier mis4es the point c:n
of entirely. whlilh is. tit not
withstandin- inore than three-orhs
o our people are engageI in :i,I
denendent on farmninr. an( 1o"'with.
standing a large proportion of tie
taxes comes out of fin farmers'
pockets, notiing. we may say. nlinot
absolutely nothinq is don for the
education of farmers isas d. Uhe
most important interest of the Sat
is treated as if no special ediucation
or training was necessary to prelpare
men for success in it. This is the
point of complaint made by Capt.
Tillman and those engaged in the
farmers' movement. Oi' course the
News & Courier is entirely too astute
not to 1fave pereeived that this is the
ground of complaint. But it pur
> posely pretends not to se it. and to
go into elaborate arguments to prove
that tie farmers' sons evjov a fair
proportion o the ativocates of the
Stat. University and Citadel in order
to draw off the attention from the
main point. It Lopes in this way to
get the 2(.0,00 appropl.*T.ai con
tinued for the Citadel, and to con
tinue to appropriate the National
agricultural fund to the use of the
State Universuv. It is to be pre
sumed, however, that the farmers'
convention will demand that this
latter fund be used as it was intend
ed. vnd be replaced by a fair tuition
fee; and that the .0,000 be diverted
from its present purpose, and be
united with the agricultural fund to
establish and support a real ha fin
agricultural college with experimental
farm. It is to be hoped that the con
vention will not only demand this of
the next Legislature. but will also
re-ommend that no candidates be
supported for the Legislature by
farmers and their frinds w;o will
not pledge themselves to support this
demand. The prime object of the
farraers' movement is to improve, in
struct and elevate the farmer; and
the best means for doing that is by
establishing a good agricultural col
lege and farni. This no doubt wil
be one of the chief demands of the
convention. and it should e done in
a tone that will be heard and heeded.
By the way, will not the News &' fi
Courier giv-e us another of its ela bo
rate articles to show what practica1l
advantagze the Citadel cleem is to
the State and people in return for the
large sum appropriated to sup)portLt
It is an institution to train youngfi
men for a profession that they c"n 'i
not, from the very nature of the cfse,
pursue. The Superintendent in his
report argues that the course is as
thorough and comp)lcte as at Wes
Point. But pray for what purpose?
At West Point youing men are pr
pared for a life callingz. But at the
citadel they are prepare<d for a call
ing they must give up as soon as te
leave its walls. Asidle fromn thme
p)hysical and mental training obtained
there, which I would not depreciate.
their educationl is niot onl of 0o 11 i
practical benefit to them. but in some
respects actually objectionable as
unfitting them for work. I believe
the money spent on the Citadel cant
be very much more wisely sp)ent, and
that it should be. B. 0. D).

One reason of our slow progres

the fact that we are but slowly pas

Our great need is education. Ho
