THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 1887.
The Farmer's Encampment at
Spartanburg last week is reported as
a very successful meeting for the first
gathering of farmers. There was a
good attendance, and no doubt more
would have attended had the weather
been more favorable; and practical
questions pertaining to the interests
of the farmer were discussed, and we
have little doubt that all who at
tended were greatly benefitted.
The exhibits we are told were not
very extensive, but this could not be
expected at the first attempt in this
direction. The farmers should take
an interest in this sort of thing for
in a gathering of practical farmers
each one cannot help but be more or
less benefitted by an interchange of
ideas, experiences and results.
We are glad to note that several
farmers from Newberry County at
tended and we are sure more would
have attended had the weather been

If the Edefendants were guilty, the
attorneys for the defense argued
that it was better to let them go that
to convict them. for by an acquitta
peace would be restored in the com
munity, but if they were convicted it
all probability new strifes would bE
aroused and possibly lead to mor(
trouble. That this county had al
ready been put to enough expens
and trouble in this matter and the
best way to stop it was to acquit the
accused. This we say was one argu
ment used with the jury.

country, but when the citizens of a

raged at one of their number
as to rise up as one .man
and demand his life, whether
justly or not, and refuse to wait on
the courts, it is true that it is not
much worth while going through
with the trouble and expense of a
trial, because the people have de
manded the life of the man who was
lynched and the people are not going
to convict those who did it.
TUE FAR]IER'S IOVEMIENT.
It may be late in the day to ask it,
but as everybody else knows, possi.
bly we will have no trouble in find.
ing out what we desire to know. We
would like for some one who knows,
to tell us plainly and briefly what is
meant by the Farmer's Movement in
South Carolina. We hear of "Moses''
and of "Joshua" and of "this move
ment" and "this cause," and we de
sire to know exactly what is in
tended by the movement, because we
are enable to say whether we advo
cate the Farmer's movement or not.
We are in favor of anything that
will benefit the farmer but we want
to know whether, in our opinion,
"this movement" will benefit the
farmer, and in order to decide this
question we must know what it is.
Possibly our ignorance is inexcusa
* ble, but we do not know and desire
to find out and hence put the ques-.
tion. Is the sole object of the Farm
er's movement the establishment of
an Agricultural College ? Is it a
political movement led by politi
cians ? Or is it meant to advance
the interests of the tillers of the soil
in other directions ? Most that is
written now seems to be centered on
the establishment of an Agricultural
College and by such establishnment it
* s claimed the farmers interests will
be advanced. We hope somebody
who knows will tell us what we do
not know about this movement. We
are sincere in desiring our questions
THE CANAL AND THE STATE'S
We wonder if the State has been
spending money digging a canal
through tiie lands of private individ
uals, and having no available sites of
her own upon which to erect factories,
and thus utilize the great water
power the canal is to afford. Colum
bia has been talking of building a
cotton mill, and it is said will build
it, but when an effort is made to
secure a site and obtain power from'
the canal to <trive the mill it is
found that such an enormous price
is asked for the site that it is thought
cheaper., to secure a site
1lsewhere even if the mill will
have . to be run by steam.
This. land, too, for which so much is
demanded is now growing up in
weeds, and we suppose, is owned, by
We wonder if these parties in
search of this site went above Ger
vais street bridge to view the avail
able sites there. In fact we believe
the canal is only finished as far as
Gervais street bridge.
It seems strange to us that Colum
bia, after being so anxious for the
completion of the canal, and arguing'
the great advantages to accrue to the
State from a utilization of the water
power to be afforded by the canal,
should determine it was cheaper to
build their cotton mill on a site other
than on the banks of this canal. If
real estate is booming- in this way
along the banks of this stream so as
to make it impracticable to build
factories on it, what benefit can it
ever be to the State? Or has the
State any sites of its own upon which
to erect factories so as to utilize this
vast water power? These are mat
ters that should be considered by
our legislators before any more
money is spent on the canal. What
does it mean anyhow? The factory
or cotton mill is to be built but not
to be run by water power from the
canal. We cannot understand the
use of the canal to the State if other
power is cheaper in Columbia for
running factories and cotton mills.

cannot be had just now.
FURTHER DETAILS OF THE ,BUTCHERY.

Later and fuller details from the scene
of the tragedy develop the fact that there
were nine victims instead of seven. as at
first reported. Capt. and Mrs. R. F.
Woolfolk, their six children, ranging in
ages fror.. IS months to 20 years, and
Mrs. West, an aunt of Mrs. Woolfolk,
aged SO. The coroner's jury found a
verdict of murder against Thos. G.
Woolfolk, a son of the captain's first
wife, who; was sleeping in the house.
His statement was that sometime before
daybreak he was aroused by groansand
the sound of blows proceeded from; his
parent's room. His half brother Rich
ard ran into the room which adjoins his,
and thinking that murder was being
committed he (Thomas) jumped from the t
window in his night clothes and bare
feet and ran to the house of a negro
three or foor hundred yards distant to
get them to arouse the neighborhood.
le says he was afraid to return, fearing
that he himself would be murdered, but
went back after half an hour. No help
had arrived and he went in to see if the
family had been murdered. He found
them all dead. He stepped in a pool of
blood in passing and left the footpr'nts
on the floor. He found his step mother
lying so th it her head was on the floor
and her body on the bed. He raised her

A DISGRACEFUL SCENE.
A Fi 2e ExhibiGon by aI Whlte 3I1en and
Ils Mulatto Bride.
A most disgraceful and repulsive
drama was eniactedl yesterday in the
broad (daylighit, and on Broad street, be
fore the eyes of the world. It was just
12 o'clock when a one horse farmer's
wagon drove up and stopped on Broad
street betwveeni Jackson and Campbell.
In the wagon was a white man of about
twenty-live and a mulatto girl seemingly
of ab)out eighteen. For fifteen minutes
the scene was one to make all the blood
boil in a mnan's veins. Tlhe woman threw
her arms around the neck of her com
panion and showered kiss after kiss
upon01 his sunburnt cheeks. She gave
hug afte!r hug. and all the while her
"Soft eyes look'd love to eyes which
spoke love again ;
And all we::t merry as a marriage bell."
He returned her caresses with a touch
as ocft as any woman's and smiledl con
tinuously. Meanwhile a crowvd of per
haps se'venty-five spectators had gath
ered arond(, but the couple w-re igno
rant of the fact. Basking in the heav(.
of each other's smiles they reveled in
obivion. But this could not last al
ways, and the dusky maiden's "ducky
dove"' descendited and wvent a-shopping.
A reporter seized his opportunity and
went for the wagon. They were from
Warren ';ounty, lhe 'learned, and had
been married live months. A negro
p)reacher by the niame of Davis had mar
rid thenm. The bride remarked that

With the flood already considerably gu
past 30 feet, this information could not .
be otherwi-e than almost convincing le
that the height of Sunday one week ago in!
would be exceeded. But there was no se
fear or anxiety evinced at the news, for D
people had very quickly after the first
freshet realized that but little damage n
could b6 done by a repetition. Then it sti
was thought that the loss would extend th
far into the thousands, but after the
waters had receded it was seen that,
with the exception of flooded cellars and an
a few torn-up streets, the ravages were
almost, if not Wholly insignificant. tlh
Therefore thoce who resided in low por
tions of the city, removed their belong
ings to higher floors or to safer places, pr
and looked on the approach of the water
in a matter-of-fact way-without the
slightest show of dread or suspense.
