NEWBERRY. S. C,
THURSDAY, JAN. 5. 1888.
The Charleston Sunday DiTspatch
comes to us with the new year in an
enlarged form. It is now an eight page
paper, full of news, bright and spicy
in its editorials. We congratulate our
cotemporary on its success.
The Columbia Bleau of the Augusta
C7ronicle has been discontinued, and
Mr. B. C. Sloan, who was manager.
will be added to the editorial staff of
the Columbia Register. Mr. Sloan has
proven himself a good newspaper man
and will be quite an acquisition to the
staff of the Register.
The city of Columbia will hold an
election in a few days to vote on the
question of guaranteeing the interest
on the bonds to be issued for the com
pletion of the canal. It is proposed to
issue bonds to the amount of $200,000.
Columbia now has the canal and she
should show her faith in the enterprise
by her works.
Mr. J. P. McNally, the alleged kid
napper of Blackwood, over whom
South Carolina and Georgia had so
much correspondence, and came near
going to battle in order to settle the
comity of States, has passed to that
land "whence no traveller returns,"
and will no longer give these sovereign
States trouble. McNally and Charles
Colvin had a little shooting affair dur
ing Christmas week in which McNally
received three bullets from Colvin's
pistol, and has since died from the
We are not given to writing homi
lies on the old year and the new; but
with the close of the year it is well to
stop for a moment and take a retro
spect: consider the mistakes of the
past and profit by them in the future.
The past year has been a prosperous
one for our section in many respects.
We have been blessed with good crops
and our farmers start with the new
year under more favorable and en
couraging circumstances than they
have for some time past. We should
endeavor more and more to practice
economy, industry and thrift, and rele
gate to the past the ruinous credit sys
tem. We will never be a happy and
prosperous people until we do.
The reported lynching of a white
man in Pickens Couinty by negroes, for
an alleged outrage on a colored girl,
which resulted in the death of the
girl, is but natural. We do not favor
lynch law, but the man who is guilty
of this offense should receive summary
justice whether the offense be against
white or colored, and whether the of
fender be white or black. The trouble
with lynch law in such cases is that,
amidst the heat and passion of offended
justice, it is possible that an innocent
man might be taken up and made to
suffer. Of course it is always best to
let the law take its course, and let jus
tice be given by the Courts.
We publish in this issue an editorial
from the .News and Courier of T ues
day, giving some facts in cotton grow
ing, taken from the experiments of
farmers in various counties in the
State. From the annual review made
up by the News and Courier it is esti
mated that the average yield of cotton
in the State is one bale to three acres.
From experiments made in this coun
ty there is no reason why the average
throughout the State should not be
much larger than that. If there were
less cotton grown on the credit system,
and our farmers made their provisions
at home, there would be a larger yield
per acre. Most farmers plant too large
an acreage and do not cultivate it pro
p)erly. The experiments published by
us last week, of those farmers in No. 6
township, shows what can be done
with very little expense and trouble.
Mr. Win. M. Werts, who lives near
Saluda, in this County, tbld us some
time in November that he had at that
time ginned and sold twenty-four bales
gathered from thirty acres, and he
tivas sure of six more, making an av'er
age of one bale to the acre. His land,
when he went on it two or three years
ago, was an old field and considered
poor..- What he has done on this land
can be done by nine-tenths of our far
mers with proper cultivation and
management. There is little. doubt
that cotton raising can be made profit
able in this country. We need fewer
farms worked on the credit system.
When this is accomplished we will
have better farming and, consequen tly,
Full particulars of the shooting af
fair ia Sumter last week may be found
in another part of this paper. The
trial justice was killed and several
wounded. Sometimes we think it was
a bad thing to repeal the law on duel
ing. It would have been better for
these men who had a "personal mat
terTto be settled, to have settled it
among themselves, wvithou t endanger
ing the lives of others, and, in this
case, killing an innocent man. These
shooting affairs may be expected as
long as men have "personal mat ters'
to settle and the pistol is carried.
These differences they will have as
long as they remain human and in
their fallen state. The pistol will be
ever ready as long as the habit of
carrying it is sanctioned by public sen
timent. And it will be so sanctioned
so long as the men who are leaders in
politics and though t, con tinue to carry
pistols wvith impunity. You never
hear of a man of any prominence being
even tried for violating the law against
carrying concealed weapons. Possibly
they never violate it. The pistol is a
for a gentleman to be weighting him
self down with.
The law against carrying pistols:
must be backed up by a healthy pub
lie sentiment before it will be el'ective
or the habit abandoned.
The citizens of Sumter have held a
meeting condemning the whole affair,
and passed the following resolutions:
Resolved, That we, as citizens of
Sumter County, deeply deplore the un
timely death of Trial Justice George E.
Haynsworth, shot down by the law
less hand of violence.
2. That we, as citizens of Sumter
County, denounce the practice of car
rying deadly weapons, concealed or
3. That we demand of the public
officers of the Stat,-, county and city
of Sumter to enforce the law against
carrying concealed weapons.
4. 'That we, as citizens of Sumter
County, confidently expect from the
jury of inquest that they will, in this
grave emergency, perform their whole
duty fairly and fearlessly.
5. That these resolutions be pub
lished by the press of Sumter, Charles
ton and Columbia.

sinking fund commission to the ta:
books of the respective counties, am

tiable to do heretofore. There are of
the delinquent list 914,852 acres of suel
land, valued at $3,000,000, and on whiel
$:3ju.09 taxes arc due.

back taxes the contmui,sioners of thl

amount of all taxe=, costs and penaltie
accrued to and including the levy of 188
upon any land uponethe forfeited listsa
the time of the passage of this Act,
(December '4, 1SS7.) "Any judgement
obtained in such actions shall have
lien upon the lands respectively upo
which such taxes, costs and penaltie
shall have accrued, and the same sha:
be sold tinder execution by the sheril' i
due course of law, Knd the proceeds 4

Thus, though the :inking fund con

obtaining judgment in a suit as fo

proof, the petition of any tax pay

LYNCH LAW REVERSED. T!
f A White 3an in Pickens County
Hanged by Negroes.
Special to the Nezcs and Courier.
GREENVILLE, January 2.-Facts have
t just reached this city of a sensational
- affair at Central, Pickens County,wh ich ri,
furnisbes, perhaps. the first instance in hi
t this section of the hanging of a white
3 man by negroes. Last Friday an inquest
was held by Trial Justice P. D. Garvin ti:
- over the body of a negro girl about 13 A
years old. who died undercircumstances o
C that gave rise to suspicion of criminal
assatlt. Investigation contirnied the ,
r suspicioni, and the physician who made tI
the examination reported that the girl i
t had died from the efects of a criminal of
[ assatdt. P1
i Tie evidence implicated a white nman
named Waldrop, a laborer on Mr. F. J.
[ Pelgea's farm, in Anderson County. ti
I Waldrop. who was a half-witted young I
fellow and unmarried, protested hiz in- ti
nocenee, and he wa; arrested and or- sl
dered to be taken to Pickens and con- d
initted to jail. That night two consta- a
- bles, D. E. Garvin and a companion, y
1 started to Piekens with the prisoner. ti
> They were driving a mule to ;i single b,
t buggy and had the prisoner between tl
5 them. At a point on the road, about tl
i three-quarters of mile from Central, the 0:
> party was halted by a crowd of negroes, it
f who demanded the prisoner. Tie con
- stables attempted to drive on bit the t(
negrces in the crowd held the mule and el
a would not allow them to itove forward. ,
1 One of the constables jumped out of the tl
' back of the buggy and ran. h
J The negroes then took Waldrop from 'i
the buggy and carried him oil' into the b
s woods. The other constable drove furi- n
A ousiy back to Central in the buggy, he- b
I ing unable to do anything to protect his t4
s prisoner. Carrying Waldrop off, the
& negroes sthot htim a number of times, hut *a
t did not succeed in wounding him fatally o
Attracted by the noise of the shooting. tt
S a party of citizens living in the neigh- A
a borhood hastened to the scene. Dr. c,
u Folger. Dr. Clayton and Messrs Payne d
s and Werner were in the party. On o
l their arrival the negroes all fled but one. o
They returned in a short while, howev- b
er, and ordered the whites who had v
e come up to clear away as they were go- (
n ing to tire again. The white men re- v
a tired, being unarmed and without any t!
e means of deft"nding themselves or the
t prisoner, who was, at mro-t, only slight- a
lv wounded. q
r ~ The gang of negroes then returned, o
took Waldrop and hanged him to a tree (
in the woods. When the body was a
- found next morning it was seen that the t
U shots that had been hed would not a

e The affair has aroused the whole con- p
Y munity around Central to a white heat a

the body of Waldrop was empanelled on t
Saturday, but was adjourned over to d
g Tuesday to allow Solicitor Orr's pres- u
ence. Solicitor Orr will go to Central in v

The Possibilities of the Cotton Crop in
1"lJ icl .a'trs awul Courier, 3d.
e- The average prodnetion of cotton per
it- acre in South Carolina, last year, as
n shown in the Annual Review published
to in the Veues -rl Courier yesterday, was
le- 158 pounds. or at the rate of about one
he bale to three acres. That these figures do
no not by any means represent the average
-o productive capacity of the cotton:lands in
e'd the State, however. searcely requires to
Le be said. From one bale on three acres to
ys one bale on one acre is a long stride, but
. it is a stride which has been accomplished
it by many of our intelligent farmers, while
ro the record has been raised to two bales
Is- per acre by a number of others, and even
rs to three bales per acre, it is claimed, by a
re particularly skilful few.
Is These differences in the amouut of cot
as ton produced do not depend, of course,
id upon the location and natural fertility of
Il- the land. One farm can be made to pro
'- duce one or two bales per acre, while an
Let other, across the road or fence, will yield
ng only a third of a bale. or less careful.cul
1ii- tivation. This is well understood. It is
he astonishing, however, to see what can be
ec- accomplished, by proper methods, and
tld this can be shown by a few examples,
>re without attempting to make the record
1I complete. The cus and Courier has
nd published, at different times within the
'- past few weeks, a number of reports of
some successful experiments in cotton
ed planting in 1687, which may be summa
he -ized brietiv as'follows:
im In M1arion County, Mr. Duncan Mc
min Laurin, with one mule, made twenty-six
ier bales on twenty-five acres, "and a bounti
it. "ful supply of corn, fodder, potatoes and
ad -peas besides." Mr. George T. Reid, of
)g- Chappell's, made ninety bales, besides
iot plem y of corn and fodder, on "a five
:nt horse farm," the area of which was rot
er- more- definitely mentioned. Mr. W. H.
he Hardin, Jr., of Chester, made 26%1 bales,
*at averaging 450 pounds, on thirteen acres.
in- Each one of four farmers in the counties
he of Greenville, Oconee and Pickens made
He over 1,000 pounds of lint cotton on a sin
his gle acre, while others approached very
ton nearly to the thousand-pound limit.
rly Another interesting experiment was made
tad by three leading agriculturalists in New
he berry County, but the acreage planted
he was not mentioned, and the yield was
ire stated in pounds of seed cottoL. so that
of no comparison of yield per acre can fairly
be instituted. One feature of this record
ter is too important to be passed over without
re- particular notice. Some of the best re
all suits attained were reported from the
.rd, counties of Greenville, l'ickens and On
-as, cooee. As is well known, cotton cultiva
ga- tion has been introduced into these coun-.
by ties since the war, but by the aid of com
he mercial fertilizers they are enabled to
a a take their place now in the front rank of
ok, the cotton counties.
, it This is-a fair showing indeed for the
ive possibilities of the cotton crop of the fu
the ture in South Carolina, but -there is more
as- yet to be told. Mr. J. A. Peterkin, of
his Fort Motte, Orangeburg County, it will
er- be remembered by some of our agricultu
)ns ral readers, promised last spring to prove
that he could "cultivate fifty acres of cot
OW -ton with one mule and one laborer, and
her -make fifty bales."' In a recent num
n- her of the ieekly News and Courier, Mr.
ks Peterkin annour.ced the result of his ef
ior forts. He failed to make fifty bales, but
isi- succeeded in making forty-four bales,
the wh"'se average weight was 450 pounds.
he Six bales were lost on account of the cat
or- erpillars, whose presence rendered two
poisonings necessary, and injured the
ese crop at least to the extent stated. The
fifty acres were "well cultivated by one
-mule anid one laborer," no help being
employed except to hoe the crop twice.
These hoeings cost .$100, and ginning and
picking cost $.300 more. The crop was
10- manured by means of cotton seed, or the
len seed was exchanged for cotton seed meal
aut to be used for the same purpose. This
meal, mixed .with acid phosphate, Mr.
488 Peterkin claims, "makes the land self
gh Besides the forty-four bales of cotton,
the ploughman and mule made 12,000
re- pounds of peavine hay and peas, the labor
on this crop being' performed in five days
ho that were too wet to plough in the cotton,
ye The total expenses for making and gath
ity ering the whole crop was $500, and if the
i cotton shall be sold at 10 cents a pound,
nd as Mr. Peterkin expects it will yet be sold,
be he will clear nearly r81,500 on the work of
),the one la borer and one mule., The cost
'of making the cotton was l'ess than :3
fcents a pound, and Mr. Pet erkin pro
rst~ i-es, finally, to tell the readers of the
Weely Kews and Courier how he planted
re- and cultiv.ated it.
SIt is n6t to be expected. of course, that
it every farmer in South Carolina will be
ab)le to raise three, or even two bales of
?it cotton to: the acre, as a rile; but very
nid many more of them ought to find it prac
~nt ticab)le to raise one bale to the acre, and
.make all their necessary supplies besides.
ptIf only this much of the possibiliteis of
rythe cotton crop were realized by all the
ycotton producers in the State every year,
ethe averag crpwuld be three times as
all gein s it was last year, and South Caro
d liabeides being the pleasartest State
tie inthe Union to live in, would soon be
comre the richest.
