We desire it understood that we have
no reference to the delinquent sub
scriber, or the collection of an adver
tising account. These are big enough
things in their way, but they do not
bother us half as much as some other
things. Our experience is that people
will pay for their paper at some time or
other, and whenever the money comes
in it always seems to be the very time
we need it most. And we have only
once or twice called upon subscribers
to pay, through the paper.
But there are other things that
trouble us. The paper must come out
once a week on time. The editor must
fill a column or two with leaders on the
live subjects of the day. And just what
to write about sometimes puzzles us
most awfully. The tariff is worn thread
bare, and what do our readers care
about our opinion on the tariff any
way, for we confess that we know very
little about it. The negro has been
discussed in Senate chambers and
banquet halls by legislators and after
dinner orators, until everybody is sur
feited on that subject. Every editor in
the State, who has an opinion, has
given it on Chairman Shell's address
and call for a Democratic nominating
State Convention within the Demo
cratic party, but not of it. The farmers
have been advised time and again how
they should raise their own supplies at
home and make cotton the surplus
crop, and when the moon was right for
planting potatoes until they scarce heed
the advice any longer. We have ad
vised the people of the town how they
should go to work and build factories
and invest their money in manufactur
ing enterpries, and thus build up a
great and thriving city in their midst,
but we did not have the money to back
our judgment with a big subscription
at the head of the list, and our eloquent
words fell flat on listless ears, or so it
Then what are we to do? What shall
we write about, after exhausting all
these weighty subjects?
So, dear reader, you perceive some of
the difficulties under which the editor
of a country weekly labors, aind this
faint glimpse is only in one direction,
and does not enumerate the half. Yet
he must write and write about some
thing, or write nothing of something,
as is frequently done. And this is
proper, for .if he can't write about
something, or write nothing of some
thing, he had better retire from his
Yet wvith it all the country editor has
a fairly good time, or at least other
people think he does, and it makes it
just the same as if he did-to them.
But we are not complaining, for we
love our work, and we shall always try
to give our readers the news, and our
opinion too. The latter may not be
worth much, but we shall always try
to have an opinion, and not wait to see
which wvay the current is strongest be
fore we express it.
We shall always strive to perform the
duty that lies at hand, whatever the
difficulties may he, and persevere in

FRIENDS AND FRIENDs.
Napoleon wrote at one time that "a
faithful friend is the true image of the
Deity." Then there are friends who
are such only in name, and are friends
to you only so long as you are smiled
upon by fortune. Then there are
friends who are only pretended friends,
and are such only for their persoi al
aggrandizement and advanceinent; to
further their private ends and selfish
"The man that hails you Tonm or Jack,
And proves by thumping on your back
His sense of your great merit,
Is such a friend, that one had ineed
Be very much his friend indeed
To pardon or to bear it."
Such a friend as here set forth is one
loud in his professions of friendship,
,and is always trying to impress upon
you his friendship for you and interes*
We sometimes wonder if the farmers
do not become sick and tired, and even
disgusted, with some politicians and
editore, who are always posing as the
friends of the farmer, and who, as soon
as they think they see which is the
popular side, rush in the midst of the
fray, and are ready with their little
advice to the farmer, and then put
'themselves up as the self constituted
champions of the farmer and his rights.
We are sorry to say that it does ap
pear at times that the farmer does not
see through the thin gauze wvhich
covers these loud champions, and dis
cern their truenmotiv-e.
That man is not always your best
friend, who rides along with tbe cur
rent, and cracks the whip that he
thinks will give him popularity. There
may be in the easy sailing stream a high
precipice and a deep and yawning
chasm just ahead. Would it not be
best, and prove truer friendship to
point out the danger, and thus avert
the catastrophe that is just ahead, if the
ship continues to glide down the stream
with the current, than to glide along
with the throng with loud professions
of friendship and let. a! be swallowed
up in the v- ;ex of dangers that are in
the w!y. Yet that seems to us to be
the attitude of many of these clamor
ing and noisy friends of the farmer.
But the signs of the times indicate
one thing, and that is, that our farmers
are beginning to think for themselves,
and they can discern between true and
feigned friendship, and that the man
who protests friendship simply in idle
words will wake up some day and find
himself badly left.
They love manly men. A man who
has convictions, and the courage to
maintain them, and if he happens not
always to agree with them, but has the
merit in him and the courage of his
convictions, he will sooner or later find
himself coming to the front.
We hail the day gladly when our
farmers will fully realize that many of
their would be friends, and those who
are making the greatest demonstration
of their friendship, are such who, in
many cases at least, are trying to ride
into popularity on the farmers ship.

the Supreme Court of the United States

Reports indicate that the Augusta
Division of the Three C's, will be built.
And now it looks that Newberry is to
be on the main line. But we will not
hope too much until we see some work
begun on this division. We have had
these flattering prospects several times
before, and a new road just within our
grasp, but they all passed away. We
trust this time they mean business and
that we will have the road to New berry
by next fall.
EX-GOVERNOR CHAMBERLAIN IN
Ex-Governor Chamberlain last week
made a speech in Boston before the
Reform Club, in which he seems to
have dealt plainly with two big ques
tions, that of pensions and the negro,
and is reported to have been at times
applauded to the echo.
In regard to pensions he gave some
facts and figures to show that the pub
lie treasury was being raided to satisfy
the pension grabbers. We have nearly
as many pensioners as Germany sup
ports in her standing army. Last year
there were nearly 500.000 pensioners,
and during the same year $89,000,000
wvere spent in this direction. He thinks
if the pension grabbers are not checked
it will take about $200,000,000 annually
to pay the pensioners. It is fearful to
Upon the other question discussed by
Mr. Chamberlain, he speaks very plain
ly. He says he cannot see why the
race question should attract so much
attention just at this time. It is the
same question that it was in 1867 and
in 1876. He says that in sections of the
South where the negro is largely in the
majority he nowhere rules. The edu
cated, self-reliant, proud race is bound
to rule the one that has the opposite
characteristics, where the t wo races flve
together. "A higher law than that en
rolled on parchment" controls in this
matter. As a reason for this he showed
how the carpet bag governments in the
South during the days of reconstruc
tion had been complete failures. His
idea is that the negro is happier, more
prosperous, and better contented than
he has ever been since his freedom, and
that the best plan is to let him alone.
He felt that the great duty of the North
in this matter was to let the negro
If a man was murdered or butchered
in some of the States nothing was saidI
of it, but'if a negro was killed in a
Southern State by a white man there
goes up at once the cry of a race prob
In his own words the duty of the
North in this matter is to let him
"1 know no duty more imperative
than to apply the gag of public reproba
tion and contempt to the mouths of
such ghoul-like demagogues as Chand
ler and Ingalls. Can a patriotic
American conceive of a more un patri
otic and infamous course of conduct
infamous towards the negro as well as
the white man of the South-than,
without other than a cold-bloooded
partisan aim, to arouse the hatred of
both races towards each other, to set
the negro and white man at each other's
throats, while they, in cowardly safety,
in Newv Hampshire and Kansas, look
on at the bloody results. And such men,
God save the mark! are our Senators
and Republican leaders ! When Presi
dent H ar rison calls for a "bugle blast,"
or Depew discourses solemnly of our
duty to defend a free ballot, let us be
brave enough and manly enough to tell
them that such thunrder is a stase trick
which has had its day of success, an d
that the real point of danger to a free
ballot and to American institutions lies
in the means and methods wvhiich in
the last election carried New York for
"The negro is to-day working out his
own salvation where he is, without
your help. He is doing; infinitely bet
ter than when yo tried to help hini,
than when you triedl to protect him by
bayonets. You left him in 18sm, in
order to save the Presidence for the
Rep)ublicani p)arty, to his fate. Hie has
met that fate, and met it well. You
have done all you can do for hziim. The!~
only effective p)rotection lie can have
under our system of government is t he
protection of the stronger rice with
wh'h his lot is cast."
The speech was forcib!y and logical
!y put and contained miany solid
chunks of facts. Still wve believe the
best thing for both races is a gradtual
In concluding, Mir. Chamberlain
made a plea to his Northern friends for
good fellowship in the matter, and
But, as I have said, and as I permit
myself to repeat, there is no cause of
alarm, except to party politicians, ex
eept to your Hoars and Lodges, to
your Ingallses aucrt Chanidlers. The
negro of the South is doing wvell. The
white man of the South is doing wvell.
Close your ears to these siren voic-es

good feeling, good fellowship between

by religious and educational influences,
but there is need towards the negro, es
pecially, for much of what Burke, in
an immortal phrase, called "a wise and
salutary neglect" in the political sense.

CHESTER'S GRADED SCHOOL.
The Town Votes $10,000 to Provide a
Conutmodiour and Well Equipped
[Special to News and C(ouriCr.]
CHESTER, February 10.-The -pecial
election on the question of issuing
$10,000 worth of bonds for the purpose
of erecting a connodious and well
equipped graded school building was
held here to-day. The vote was unami
uous in favor of the issue of the bonds,
not a single ballot being cast against
the loan. These bonds are to be issued
by the school district, and not by the
town, although the two corporations
have nearly the same bounds.
Chester's graded school was the
second one organized in the State out
side of Charleston and has always been
handicapped by the lack of a good
building. The vote to-day removes that
obstacle. A site has been donated for
the building already. Hence the loan
will not be subtracted from to purchase
a lot. The place choseu is a four acre
lot on the Brice place, between Colum

He felt better yesterday than for

long interview with Mr. Carlisle, in
which the subject of the rules and the
policy of the Democrats in the House
was freely discussed. The great Penn

Mr. Carlisle to extend his congratula

Augusta jail. He was captured by Mir.
James Twiggs, chief of the Augusta
police force yesterday morning, nine
miles north of MIadison, Florida, who
brought himn to the city oii the Port

house and came upon the inmates una

across the hall.
As Mir. Trwiggs entered the door

him at once. For several minutes they
swayed backward and forward, neither
being able to get the upperhand. A fter

Courier : In answer to the commiunica
tioi of (o1. I;cdell Jones, published in
The News and Courier on the 3d inst.,
allow me to say that I am afraid he
has taken a one-sided view of the call
for a Convention of the Farmers' Asso
ciation. which is to be held at Colum
bia on March 27, proximo. The call
when boiled down and tersely stated,
aincounts to this:
First. A demrand for a more econo
mical goveriient by the reduction of
expenses, salaries and unnecessary
"existing institutions'' wherever prae
ticable and possibe, which will insure
a general reduction of taxes, as well as
the benefits of an agricultural college,
without increasing the burdens of our
Second. A leiand for cheaper, more
practical and scientitie education for
the fariers and meelanies, artisans
and laborers in the State, all of which
is enbraced in the demand for an ag
Third. A demlanld that the land
scrip and Hatch funds, the agricultural
bureau, and fertilizeri funds be
used for the purpose for which
they were intended, instead of being
di1vertei anl monopolized for other
"existing it:stitution:' as they have
Fourth. A demand that the railroad
commission be made of some benetit
and use to the State, or abolished alto
gether, so that the responsibility may
rest surely upon the railroads for any
mriismrangenient and oppression, until
such time as the people may see fit to
curb and control them, by fair and
Fifth. A demand for reapportion
ment of Representatives and Senators
in the General Assembly, and also in
our Democratic Conventions, so that
all parts of the State may be fairly rep
resented, and the State freed from the
autocratic control of certain parties
and places, regardless of the will and
wishes of the people.
Sixth. A demand for a constitutional
Convention by which ourjudiciary and
certain fundamental laws could be re
formed, thereby making a better and
more economical goveriinent of the
Seventh. A demand that the peni
tentiary system be so conducted as to
give the greatest possible return to the
State, both in money, and in the im
provenciit of our public works, roads,
highways, bridges, etc.
Eighth. A demand that the South
Carolina University, which has had no
opposition from us, should take care of
its own interests, and that its friends
and advocates should cease their oppo
sition to the Clemson Agricultural and
Mechanical College, for in truth there
is no necessary antagonism between
These are the principal demands
niade in the call which I had issued, at
the request of the executive committee
of the Farmers' Association, and the
call ends as follows:
"We therefore issue the call for a
conventiou of those Democrats who
symnpatbize with our views and purpo
ses, as herein set forth, to imeet in

mers' Convention oif ISS86, and which
has not been repeated timec and again,
both in and out of our conventions, up
to thre present time? The farmers do
represent a bout eighty per cent of the
peopleC of the State, and they have
endeavored by every meauis in their
power to secure the benefits arnd remedy
the evils alluded to in the call, arid
they have also endeavored to "modify
tIelaws of tire State by other methods,"
arid now, after having been bitterly
opposed and thwarted at every turn,
they have been compelled to call a
convention of all those who sympathize
with them anid their views for the
purpose of nomiinating a ticket which
will go before tIhe people and advocate
Tire call miakes no distinction as to
profession, callirrgs or classes, and all
"artisans, mrechiarrics and laborers. as

classes who sympr~atize with us," are
invited to co-op)erate.
Certainly "the Demiocratic party is
strongenrotugh, and good enough," and
we do not propoise to use airy other,
but we certainly have the right inside

and put representatives in the field who
will ad vocate theim, arid riost surely.
we admit the right of others who (do

course. Of course it would suit some
peple for us to go along in the old ruts,
and let other people control tds, as they
see fit, but we have found that the
"usual nmethiods" arc inadequate to tire
occasion, particularly as they are under
the conitrol (of "exist ing institutions."
Tire Clemison College will not be
secure until we have a Legislature per

other dermanids will not be complied
with until we have a Democratic Con
