An thtertiew with Senator Pope on the
Origin and Aim of the System.
The ryporter for The Herald and
N1ws thinking that the public would
like to know something of the inside
itory of the agitation in behalf of
hel ter public schools within our county
which culminated in the creation, by
in Act of the last General Assembly of
this State, of the Broad River School
District, and the Rutherford School
District, sought our Senator who very
cheerfully submitted his views on this
Reporter : Senator Pope, I would be
glad to know what led to the passage of
t he recent Act of the General Assembly
in relation to the Broad River School
District and the Rutherford School Dis
Senator Pope : Early in November
last Col. D. Augustus Dickert, by his
appointment met me in my office, and
announced as the purpose of that inter
view, the erection of better schools for
his section of our county, and in answer
to my questiou as to the methods he
had in view to secure this most worthy
end, replied that the creation of a
school district by an Act of the General
Assembly, with power of taxation,
would accomplish the desired result.
The result was that Col. Dickert then
undertook to formulate a plan and se
cure the consent and co-operation of
the other citizens of his section to the
proposed school district. Accordingly
petitions Numerously signed were fur
nished the members of the Legislature
from Newberry, memorializing the
General Assembly on the passage of
an Act for the purpose hereinbefore
indicated. Just here I would like to
state that the earnestness of purpose in
dicated by Col. Dickert impressed me
very much. He had not only ridden
to Newberry through a very heavy
rain, but he brought with him carefully
prepared plans written out, all of which
showed that he was in earn es.
After the legislature had been in ses
sion more than a week, the petition
for the Rutherford School District
reached us, and I understand that this
movement enlisted the hearty sympa
thy and co-operation of Col. Dickert.
Reporter: From your statements, it
would seem that Col. Dickert was the
pioneer in this movement for better
schools for the masses.
Senator Pope: Undoubtedly Col.
Dickert is entitled to all the credit due
to active leadership in this matter.
Those who saw Col. Dickert in battle
and witnessed there not only his un
flagging zeal, but splendid courage,
would naturally expect the best and
bra-niest work in behalf of the educa
tion of our children, if we were enlisted
in that cause. He has enlisted the first
volunteers in our county. Let us,
therefore, uphold his hands and en
courage his labors.
Repori,er: I see from your surround
ings that I cannot longer claim your
attention at this time, but there are
other questions I would like to submit
for your answers.
Senator Pope: Whenever you feel
that there are any matters supposed to
be in my charge. or any question relat
ing to public afairs concerning which
you may wish my views, I shall be
pleased to confer with you.

Nearly 62,000 In Gold Stolen from John
Dominick's Smoke House-Another
Arrest in the Banks Case.
A bold and daring robbery was com
mitted about three miles from town on
the premises of Mr. John Dominick,
better known by the cognormen of
"Lumber John," by which he, or rather
his wife, lot a large sum of money.
Mr. Dominick is rather an imbecile,
and his wife attends to all the busi
ness. She is illiterate, not knowing
even how to count money; hence it is
impossible to arrive at the exact
amount, which was stolen. It is placed
at $1,000, but the probabilities are that
it was nearer $2,000. It was the amount
for which 18 bales of cotton were sold,
soon after the war, at 28 cents per
pound in gold. This amount, whatever
it was, was all stolen except $250U. Mrs.
Dominick had banked her money, (all
gold) in a common flour barrel. in the
meat house. She did not think a living
soul knew where she had it hid. In
order to make things doubly secure, a
vicious dog was :hained to the door,
but even this did not s.tve the gold.
The thieves seem to have been three in
number, and by some means secured
the dog, broke the lock, entered the
house, got their booty and left. They
did not go far before they stopped built
up afire and investigated, and probably
divided. They dropped or lost $13.,
wh'ch was recovered the next morning.
After looking over their spoils, they
.found no silver, and believing there
was a sack of silver in the barrel also,
they returned to the meathouse again,
with a light. This time the barking, or
howling of the dog awoke Mrs. Domi
nick, who got up and ran the robbers
off. She did not recognize any of them.
Suspicion points very strongly towards
certain individuals, and the probabili
ties are that the robbers wid be caught.
Mrs. Banks offers a reward of fifty dol
lars for tWeir app:ehension. This is too
small for the amout stolen. and we
really fear that no oae will take the job
for sosma I an amount. It is believed
that the pa:ties are white men.

IHE FARMERS' ALLIANCE
still continues to increase in member
ship all over the county, and the farm
ers are taking a warmer interest in the
movement. I believe that the Alli
ance has come to stay, and that it will
prove beneficial i. improving the farm
ers' condition intel leci ually, morally,
socially and financially. The Alliance
did not come in a blast. 'he farmers
are not going into it through excite
ment, but very deliberately. When
ever you see an organization rise up
through a heat of excitement, it is one
of the best signs that it will soon die.
The Alliance does not intend to make
any ucreasonable or unwarranted de
mands upon anybody, either as a buyer
or seller, but professes to be moderate
and conservative in all of its transac
This is the third time the farmers
have tried to organize. About four
teen or fifteen years ago, the Grange
was introduced into this part of the
Stale, as the very thing to lead the old
farme-s out of the wilderness. And
when it came, it came in a storm of en
thusiasm, and the farmers all flocked
to it like a crowd of negroes to a band
of music. But they allowed a certain
set of men come in and make sugges
tions what they should do, and how
they should do it, anid they in a short
while made their purposes plain by
gobbling up all the money that they
could get their hands on and leaving
the farmers with the bag to hold-and
it was empty ! The Grange was as
good an oganization as ever introduced
into the State-outside of the Church
but it was a idden to death, and it was
done inside of its own ranks.
Then the next efTort to organize the
farmers was introduced by Capt. B. R.
Tillman about three years ago. The
requisite for membership in local clubs
in the county was that no one could
come in who did not superintend, con
trol or manage a farm. But in come
lawyers, doctors, preacheis and poli
ticians, claiming the right of member
ship simply because they had a piece
of land somewhere anid an old black
man on it raising gr~ass. The farmers
knew Lhen that these classes were not
entitled to membership. But they
were too good-natured to say anything
for fear they would hurt somebody's
feelings and make themselves unpopu
lar. They know that their righ:s have
been ignored. but the farmers take 1o it
so g;ace.'ally thattibe polli icia .as ar'e en
conuraged to ignore them, so away went
the Farmers' Club. It is forever dead,
and the politicians are welcome to all
they have gotten out of it.
Now let the. farmers stick to the Al
liance. it is composed solely of farm
ers, and those ':eeested therein who
are not speculators, merchants, law
yers, or city physicians. or following a
profession in cities or towns. The
meetings are held wvith closed doors
and the discuss'ons are s'ecret as in any
other seetet socieiy. The object of the
Alliance is for the benefit of the farme:-,
and is not to pull down or destroy any
other call;og or profession. But it is
the intenion of the AliUance to use
eve1g leg'timate means to ove. briow
anything and defeat any measure that
builds itself up or accumulates fortunes
at the ex peose of the fa--mer.
It has been already said amoag the
meichants that it is no use for the
farmeis to u y to pluck out the midule
man for they can't do it. But all the
faimers have to do is t o haug togeiher
through thick and thin, ana if we don't
get Lhe middle-man we will not iegard
trusts, combines or lings as legiLimate.

One of the most remarkable charac
rs Cincinnati ever saw died yester
y. It was Dr. Joseph Garretson of
est Eighth street. For sixty-two
~ars of his life he never drank a cup
coffee nor sipped a little tea. For
fty years of his life he ate no meat.
or twenty-six years of his life he never
ok so much as a pinch of salt. He

[is ideas were very simple, but on the
:bject of diet he believed strictly in a
egetarian diet. Nature, he used to
ty, has supplied this food, and it is
gainst nature when man eats meats.
o those who would eat meat, how
ver, he insisted that it-should be eaten
oiled. He used to point to the In
ians as proof of this, claiming that
biey were never sick unless from
rounds. He trusted to no cooks to'
repare his food, but did it himself.
Vhen he went upon a journey he took
is food with him, and only a few
reeks before his death was in New
Eork city, going the entire distance
eith his food. He claimed that every
hing greasy was injurious to the hu
aan system, and of all things horrible
vas a piece of meat fried. Dyspepsia
,nd all the ghosts and nightmares of
ndigestion he attributed to frying.
uis only drink during his life was
vater, or sometimes a lemonade. He
vas continually experimenting on the
ubject of diet, and attributed his long
ife entirely to his diet and habits.
Proof Better than Assertion.
With such p roof as the following let
er from W. H. Dean, of 278 Seventh
treet, New York, it.is not necessary to
nake the bare assertion that Allcock's
Porous Plasters cure lumbago. Mr.
Dean says :
Some ten days ago I was taken with
a very violent pain in the small of my
>ack. It was so severe that I could
aardly breathe ; every movement
taused great agony. I finally found
>ut that it was lumnbaazo. Being entire
.y helpless, a friend sent to a druggist
tnd got two Ailcock's Porous Plasters:
:hese were well warmed and applied to
rny back, one above the other. In half
mn hour, to my great delight and sur
p rise, I found the pain began to abate.
[n two hourslI was able to walk out
tnd attend to my business, the pain be
ing almost gone. Next day I was all
right but continued wearing the plaster
for a week, it.
