I to punish this fraud. At the North
the law makes this felony. We buy an
nually about $3,000,000 Worth of fer
tilizers, and in doing so we are robbed
of $500.000. In this connection I 'am ro
minded of a remark of Bob Toombs ;
"Give me a bag off sand and a rotten
stump and I can make as good guano as
anybody." In Mississippi. the agri
cultural college looks up frauds in for
'tilizers and brings these offenders to
" justice. As freemen we should demand
- of our legislature the control of our
own money and see that it is applied in
s the interest of farmers.
I have often been asked whether only
farmers should take part In the agri
cultural movement. I answer by no
means. We are all citizens of South
Carolina, no matter what our profes
s1ons may be ; we are bound together
by ties of friendship and kindred. In
this light every patriot, of every pro
fession, will put his shoulder to the
wheel. Let all come in, for the move
ment is in the interest of farmers, law
yers, merchants and all alike. We need
- economy, justice, efficiency. Let all
join for this purpose.. But I would have
you beware let you admit to your ranks
some designing demagogue who seeks
to ride into oillee on the backs of the
farmers. Lots of men are jumping on
the farmers' wagon and shouting,
"Ilurrah for the farmers' movement,"
when the mean only "'hlurrah for me !1"
[lIere M1. Tillman would have ended
his address, but in answer to cries of
"Go on ! go on !" he proceeded.]
It has been charged, (and the charge
scarcely deserves notice,) that the farm
ers' movemlent wats Iltended to split the
Democratic party in - South Carolina.
The rapidity with which my movement
spread showed how necessary it was.
I never sought to be a political leader.
I have been repeatedly accused of sel
lishness, and it is said that I sold out to
Sheppard. I voted for Sheppard on the
principles which I have always believed
and taught,-because lie was in favor of
my measures. HIe stood solidly on the
-farmrs' platTorm in everything but the
Citadel Academy, and I voted for him
becnuse I thought he would make a
Vhen we regained pos-ession of our
State government in 1876 the general
idea Was that a through eleaning up was
necessary. Did we do it? Some say
that we did ; I say we did not. We live
to-day under the constitution which was
forced down our throats at the point of
the bayonet. I admit that it Is a good
organic law, but it is defective and there
can be no reduction of taxes until these
defects are remedied. One of the ulcers
on the body politic is the nuisance of the
trial justice system. As it is now many
trial justices hunt up cases for the sake
of the fees, and in consequence two
thirds of the time of our courts It taken
up trying little nigger lights. It has
been suggested that we have magis
trates to issue warrants, probate papers
&c., without appeal, and at the same time
the numnbers of circuit judges should he
imereased. We must stop paying thirty
live cents a day to feed a uigger in jail
on black nolasses and meal, when we
knuow that lie canl be fed on about seven
cents. It is said that if we make this
clange we can't get anybody to take the
sherill's olice ; but I have never known
even the county conmmissioner's otllce
to go begging. Why shouln'nt we re
tn to the old system of Coun
ty Goverunment? Men have, however,
ceased to work for honor in South Caro
lina,-:and we hitve almost lost the seed.
We (1o nothing now without pay. Can
we expect at conuty commissioner to do
his duty at .300 a year? Look at our
roads. A change is necessary, and sub
commissioners should be appoilted in
each townshipi, or ele the contract sys
tem of road-working substituted for our
)resent system. Then there are time
olliees of auditor antd treaisurer. What
is thme use of hIavinig both ? Is it the atu
dlitor's duty to watch the treasurer?
TheIse- two oflIers are and always have
been like twins. There is no0 evidence
of collusion between thenm, but still the
poli-iax. is not 'ali collected. Wily
not unhite tihese two offices? What
use haive we for a commissioner of reg
ism ratil ? The p)robate jud(ge might (10
tis work for a fee of a few cents.
T1here aire lots of olliees ne can (do with
out. WVe hear continuailly atbont hlard
times. Farmers can searcely miake endls
meet, or if they do meet, they lap
over but a little way. When tis is thie
case why shlould we continue to pay so
man~y salaries'. Our capacity 1o pay13 has
been limited one-third ill tenl years,
and the purchasing power of money
has doubled ; yet thme .salaries remlain
tihe sameI and1( offices increase. This
nuIist he stopped. We can get men to
till thme ofllces at redulcedi slarIies. If
wec can't, I willl bring iln some) of my13
farmer friends, hailf of whloml are crazy
for an olIlce, pay or no0 pay. I t hinlk
some of our lawyers will go 111on1 tile
