WM. P. HOUSEAL,
NEWBERRY. S. C.
THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1889.
We publish this week a short edito
--rial from the News anl Courier in
which it is said that a refinery for
working the crude cotton seed oil is
wanted in this State. That is what The
Herald and News claimed and advo
cated several weeks ago, when the sub
ject of building a mill at this place was
discussed. We were informed that all
the refineries in this country were
either owned or controlled by the trusts,
and it seemed to us rather, queer that
these other mills and smaller mills that
were not in the trust, and others: that
do not want to enter the trust, did not
unite and build a refinery of their own
and then they conld be independent of
That is what we want, and the time
to build it is now, before all the mills
that have been built were either built
by it or are now controlled by it. Then
let these other mills that are out of the
trust go to work and build a refinery of
their own in South CarolIna. If not 9
they have either to be swallowed by the
trust or pay a royalty to have the oil re
fined. And in order to make it market
able it must berefined.
While on this'subject we would like I
to ask, what has become of the effort to I
build a mill in Newberry -? Are our I
people afraid of the trusts, or do they
tiiink we do not need any money in
vested in such manufacturing enter- I
prises cotton seed oil mills; or do
they think it best for the farmers. and i
the town to let the cotton seed be
shippcd away and the meal shipped
back to us for fertilizer. These things,
the men who have the money in the I
to'wn and county, should think of. The 2
cotton seed oil business is growing. It 1
is a paying business. The farmers are c
going to continue to sell their seed to I
the mills and buy the meal for fertilizer. i
In fact, it is considered one of the best f
fertilizers we have.. A mill here that t
would consume the seed of the county (
seems to us would be a profitable enter- I
pris', and we believe the money to s
build it could be easily raised if any a
body with money would lead off in the s
THAT ROAD CONGRESS.
The Columbia Register claims to
have advocated the holding of a road '
congress some years ago, but does not
care who is the originator of the move
ment, just so the congress is held. The i
Charleston World started the last agiti.
tion of this subject in the State. But it
makes little difference who began it. 12
What we want is the time and place to I
be fixed for holding the congress, and ~
setion taken. Some improvement in
our public roads is greatly needed, and a
the people will hail with delight any r
steps that will benefit and improve the
public roads.~ Let some one suggest
where the congress will be held, and
-wheiwand. how many delegates from
each county, and how they shall be
If any change in the road law or sys
temn of wvorkirig ihe roads is to be pre
sented to the Legislature it is time the
plans were maturing so that our legis
lators could be studying the suggestions a
and be prepared to discuss them and "
offerother suggestions and improve- '
ments. We want to see some plan in- b
augurated by which the convicts could .
be put to work on our public roads.
They work in phosphate mines and onD
farms, and on railroads, and why not ~
on public roads? If only one road in a
each county could be put in good condi- 0
tioni each year, it would be a long stride ~
But to the congress. We would sug
gest Greenville as a good place to holdt
this congress, and some time in August "
as a good time.
A RELIC OF BARBARISM.
People who stop to nonsider the ac
tions as men must sometimes ask them- d
selves whether we are fully civilized or y
not, even with all our boasted civiliza- a
tion. When men meet in a pen, as it
were, and pound themselves up for
money, and when hundreds of people
fock to see the operation, and when s
the daily newspapers are filled with ac
counts of the fighting, and when a
hungry public waits in eager expectan- y
cy to hear the final results of the fight, N
even to the minutest details, one almost
feels that there is still a relic of barbar- g
ism left among us. The fight between
Kilrain and Sullivan in a little town in L
Mississippi on Monday has attracted
national attention. The Governors of
three States attempted to prevent the a
fight. The people wanted it. The
newspapers were full of it. The fight L
came. Sullivan won the belt, having g,
knocked Kilrain out on the seventy- n;
i fth.round. We suppose thousands of
dollars were bet all over the land on 1
this contest of men with their brute
force. The whole business is demoral- g
izing, and it does look like the thing
could have been prevented if there had L.
been a healthy public sentiment against
The News and Courier copies the fol
lowing from the Philadelphia Times onE
the subject, which is very timely just
at this time:E
"The only entirely satisfactory result E
of any modern prize tight, viewed fromD
the standard of public morals, was one D
fought some years ago in New Jersey, -
when one was killed in the fight and Se
the other died in prison; but such
beneficent results are irare"
"Prize-lighting is simply unmixMd Al
brutality, and the laws of every State J
should not only prohibit such brutal by
exhibitions under severe penalties, but
they should make it a highly penal*
offence for any man to contract or to
traini for such a tight. It is a mere ple
mockery of suppressing prize fights tai
when S~ullivan can openly train in New Ar
York for such a contest, wvith his con
tract published to the world and theC
stakes publicly held by a known custo- Ca
d ian While human brutes can be pub- Be
icly trained for publicly contracted
battles in New York or Pennsylvania, O
it is simply the cant of the Pharisee toO
codemni Louisiana for permitting the Af
tight on her soil. Every State that fai:
alows public contracts, public stakes
and public training - for prize fights
within its bordersis responsible for this bui
blt ,rtaliwty upon our civilization." Sel

The following preamble and resolu
ions were adopted :
In view of the action of the various
ub and County Alliances in opposition
o jute and in favor of cotton bagging,
e it resolved
1. That this County Alliance endorse
nd sustain the action so taken and
.dopt cotton bagging for the present
rop, and that we at once proceed to
seertain the amount which will be
teeded for sub-Alliances and authorize
,ur trade houses to send in their order
o the company authorized to manu
icture said bagging.
2. That as our efforts are in favor of
11 farmers out of, as well as in our
)rder, that we secure as far as we can
heir co-operation in this endeavor to
nnish or destroy a Trust which has
ppressed us to the extent of its power,
nd would still oppress ii' possible.
3. That we will not regard as friend
y to our interests any merchant wvho
landles Jute Baggin.g, except so far as
he amount of Cotton Bagging manu
ictured may fall short of supplying
emand, as it is plainly to the general
ferest of our mountry to use our own
roduct to prepare our crops for market
rhen practicable, thus keeping in our
aidst a large amount of money which
rould otherwise go out ; and, further,
s we believe it to oe a selfish and nar
aw policy to put any obstacle in the
ray of our complete success.
4. That we now set on foot some
an by which Alliance men may p:o
ure fertilizers for crops of 1890 on the
est possible ternis, so that if satisfacto
y tams cannot be secured then that
re firmly resolve as a ur'it not to use
ommercial fertilizers at all, and that
re refuse to receive fertiliners unless
ut up in cotton sacks.
5. That if the manufacture of cott n
aed oil is a commendable industry' and
bere is so much money in it as to
mse the almost spontaneous upspring
ig of little oil milUs in every village
nd hamlet of the country, that we,
de farmers and producers of the sca(1
aould take advantage of the opportu
ity offered us of taking this great
yuthern industry, as it is called, into
ur own bands, and reaping the profits
ecruing therefroum, and to this end
re suggest to the State Alliance, and
irough the State Alliance to the Na
onal Alliance, that steps be taken
>wards the assumption of full control
f this entire business.

Fourth of July Among the Colored People

rathere'd his clans from the (iutlying
posts; and as prophecied by the lress
soue tiae sine "there was ntausic in
the .air." A big demonstration was
proposed by the Anti-Wiitnmireites,
when they expected to have a bras-,
band froni somewhere in the rural dis
trict, discoursing such natural airs as
"Rockum Jubelee," "Johnnie get your
hair cut," &c., decoying the colored
brother to the woods, where under the
subtle influence of barbecued beef and
grunters they expected to get his en
dorsenient for the opposing candidate.
But the colored brother is not so easily
deluded as a few years ago. They put
their extremities (a good size No. 10 o.
the avarage) down on the whole con
cern, and followed their Moses to an
other rendezvous, where it is said, at
least eleven or twelve hundred
gathered, and listened to speeches from
several divines, rounding up with F.
L. Hicks, who came from Washington
for the purpose; then with repeated
calls for Kennedy who finished up
with a unanimous endorsement of
Whitniire. The most ingenious part
was the circulation of certificates of en
dorsemnent which were signed to the
number of eight hundred and seventy
tive on the ground. Judging froni r p
pearance, all would have done so, hu
for the rain.
The following preambles and resolu
tions were presented and adopted with
out a dissenting voice, when cheer af

THE PREAMIBLES AND RESOLUTIONs.
We the Republicans of Newberry
County in mass meeting assent bled, do
hereby unanimously declare the sub
joined Preamble and Resolutions to ex
press the will and wish of the party iii
WHEREAS, There are a few dIisaffect
ed men in the town of Newberry,
styling themselves "a factioi of the
Republican party," who, by falsehood,
deceit, cunning and trickery, are tryiig
to defeat the expressed wish of the
majority; that wish having been again
and again expressed by letters anti
petitions and lastly by a mass meeti't;
held at the Court House in New berry
on Tuesday, the :25th, ult., and
WHEREAS, That wish has again been
tried to be defeated by the same "fue
tion" in a manner so cunningly de
vised as to entrap the unwary and
thereby unconsciously make i,hei de
feat themselves. But "He who tenipe:s
the winds to the shorn lamb," h:
brought their counsels to naught, and
scattered their deep laid schenmes,
"where the woodbine twinnetli;" and
WHEREAS, It has been asserted to
the administration, that there are nun
bers of white men who would be and
are secretly to-day in the ranks of the a
Repubiican party, if assurance is given
them of recognition by the appointing I
power. The strictest search has failed I
to produce one. The mass meeting of
the 25 ult., has failed to unearth one.
This mammoth meeting of to-day faled I
to discover one. Where are they ? A
commission duly signed by the Pres
dent of these United States is the only
lever that will be efficacious in prloduei
ing one from the arctic climes -of castet
prejudice into the warm sunshine of <
party affiliation with the negro, for
there is not a white man living to-day 4
in the country who has artiliat"d withI
the party except since the election, and
then only at night, in the wvoods or in
sonme obscure p)lace; andt
WHEREAs, WVe hope to end this "fac

unseemly attitude that we rear the ad- I
ministration is at a loss to know who is
the proper person to appoint, to satisfy 1
the community and patrons, as well as 1
the true anid tried members of the
Therefore be it resolved:

're(d thisyear, and many of which w:'l
lie ready for work by the time the grow

The average crop of seedI in So ;th
3arolina is es ilmat.d at 215,030 long e

will be handled before very long by the tc
local mills. The refineries in the No.h- 3
?rn States, we take for granted, in the
ibsence of information t-> the contrary,
re controlled by the Trust. If so, they
vill play into the hands of the Trust
uills, of course, and can either keep
he product of the local mills out of
nlarket altogether, or compel them ti
cel the crude oil on tern's favorable ta a

WVasEING"ruo, July 5.--Capt. John
G. Bourke, of the 3d cavalry, and Prof.
Painter, of Boston, representing the
Indian Rights Association, have re
turned from a trip through the South,
undertaken at the instance of the In
dian Rights Association for the purpose
of selecting a site fora future home for
Chief Geronino and his band of Apa
ches, and they are now engaged upon
their report to the war department.
These Indians are at present confined
in very cramped qluart.,rs at Mount
Vernon barracks, Ala. and it is the wish
of the Indian Rights Association to
provid. them with a tract of land con
tainiug about 10,000 acres. Capt. Bourke
.nd Prof. Painter have found such a
tract in the Indian reservation in
Swani County, N. C., which is at pre
sent occupied by about 2,000 Cherokees.
The Cherokees are willing to sell, and
the citizens of that locality are anxious
to have the Indians come, as they be
lieve it will increr -e the market for
their products. Geronilno is delighted
with the prospect of removal,- but is
disappointed at not getting back to
Arizona. The Government, however,
will not allow h im to go west of the
Mississippi again, notwithstanding his
protestations that he wants to be a
gcod Indian. Capt. Bourke and Prof.
Painter will recommend the removal
of the band, and as soon as the removal
is authorized by the secretary of war
the Indian Rights Association will
buy the land for them.

1 am going to tell you of the extraordinary
change your CUTIcuRA REMEDIEs performed
on me. About the tii;t of April last I noticed
some red pimples like coming out all over

some time later on, when it Legan to look

I would scratch ev y night until I was raw,
then the next night the scales, being formed
meanwhile, were matched uf' again. In vain
did I consult all the doctors in the country,
but without aid. After giving up all hopes
of recovery, I happened to sce an advertise
ment in the newspaper aboa t. your CUTICrRA
REMEDIES, and purchased them from my
druggist. and obtained almost immediate
relief. I began to notice that the scaly
erp' ions gradually drope oft and disap
peared one by one, and have been fully
cured. I had the disease thirteen months
before I began taking the CUTICURA REME
DIES. and in four or five weeks was entirely
cred. My disease was eczema and psorias'.
I recommended the CTTICUEA REMEDIES to
all in my vicinity, and I know of a great
many who have tauen them, and thank me
for the knowledge of them, especially
mothers who have babes with scaly erup
tions on their heads and bodies. I cannot
