THE FAR MER.' COUNTY CONVENTION.
We have endeavored to give in an
other column a full, complete and ac
curate account of the Farmers' Con
vention held in the Court Hou.e here
on last Saturday.
The meeting was a very good hu
mored one. Some of the discussions
were earnest but all in good spirit.
Some of the townships in the county
had taken no interest in. the matter at
all and had no regularly elected dele
gates present. Three townships in the
couuty had no represeitation in the
The convention passed a resolution
instructing its delegates by a vote of
4 to 2. to vote for nominations in the
State Convention. We do not believe
that this resolution expresses the sen
timent of a majority of the farmers of
this county. We believe that a ma
jority of the farmers of New ben y are
in favor of holding a State Convention,
or rather have no objections to such
action, yet we are satisfied that if a full
expression could be had a majority of
the farmers would be opposed to noni
We think it would be unwise in the
farmers to nominate a State ticket at
this time, or at any other time as a class
or sect ticket. There can be no objec
tion to a canvass before the nomina
tions by the regular State Convention,
but let the candidates make the can
Vass, and let it be under the direction
of the State executive committee. If
we are all Democrats together let us
fight out the choice of men together
and not put up a ticket as the repre
sentative, or peculiar, or particular
choice of any class of our citizens.
The merchant, the lawyer, the doc
tor, and every other class of our people
is interested in reform in the manage
ment of the affairs of State as well as
the farmer They also are interested in
low taxation, and w ho is not?
What benefits one class must benefit
another. We want to see our pcople
all work together for good and econom
ical government honestly administered.
We should not foster nor encourage
One of the speakers, Saturday, said
the farmers were a conservative people
and could be depended upon. That we
l ;ieve to be true and we believe there
will be enough good conservative men
in the State Convention to hold the
balance of power.
As for "the politicians," that is a
very broad term. The A merican peo
pie are all politicians, only some are a
little more so than others.
We do not believe the March conveu
tion wi1ll cause any split in the regular
Democratic party. We cannot afford
that now with our present surround
A meeting together of representative
farmers from all parts of the State and
a general discussion and interchange
of vidws will do good. But we believe
it would be unwise for the March coni
vention to suggest a ticket.
Col. Jas. A. Hoy t of Greenville says
he will not be a candidate for Governor
before any of the conventions.
Prince Bismarck, the distinguished
Chancellor of the German Empire, has
resigned, and his resignation has been
accepted by Emperor William.
He has been a prominent figure in
German politics for thirty years or
We direct attention to the communi
cation in aniother column from Colonel
Thomas W. Holloway. We would like
to see the farmers of Newberry enter
the race for, this prize off'ered by the
State Agricultural Society.
A citizens meeting is called for Fri
day afternoon, $th instant, for the pur
pose of nominating a ticket for mayor
and aldermen for the ensuing year.
It was our opinion that if the meet
ing were called at night we could have
had a fuller attendance, but the coun
cil thought otherwise, and the meeting
is called for the afternoon.
We hope to see a full turnout at this
meeting. Nearly every voter can spare
the time, and as many as can should
attend tihe meeting.
This is Judge Iziar's first term of
court at Newberry, and so far lie has
made a very favorable itmpression upon
--our peole. He seems very much at
-home on the bench. In his charge to
the grand jury on Monday he referred
to the subjec t of taxation, and took oc
casion to say, that tile great burden of
taxation came from the county gov~
eermulenat. His reference to the custom
of binding over so nmany witnesses is
very true, but it is but just to say that
the Trial J1ustices have no discretion in
the miatter when the attorney makes
aflidavit that certain witnesses are ma
terial and-.asks that they' be hound over.
Andl frequenitly the at torney does not

BUILDING ON PAPER.
We take the follwing from an ex
change. It expresses much truth. We
have built several great big enter
prises in Newberry and some smaller
ones too on paper, but as yet they have
not been worth much in our material
"What iniures a town more than any
thing else, is to build and operate great

must he patient and labor until you
can construct a building out of brick.
or some material equally as durable.'
But we suppose a good way is first t(
build these enterprises on paper. W
hope that it does no harm, but it i
getting time now that we should build
something )ut of brick and mortar.
There is plenty of money in New

The Statc Democratic Executive
Committe at its meeting last week
elected Col. James A. Hoyt, of Green
ville, Chairman, to succeed Judge Jas.
We think the selection a wise one.
From what we know of Col. Hoyt, we
believe he will make a good leader for
the Democracy in South Carolina at
County Premiums at State Fair.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: During the past year I brought
to the attention of the farmers of our
county, through our county papers,
that the State Agricultural and Me
chanical Society of South -Carolina had
offered a special premium for the "lar
gest and best display of field crops"
exhibited by the farmers of one county
at the State Fair of November, 1889,
and urged our farmers to compete for
the premium offered.
I now beg space to renew the urgent
requEst, and hope that action will be
taken by the Alliance as the most thor
oughly organized body in the county,
to compete at the State Fair of 1890.
The premiums offered are:
Second premium.............. 1~0
Third premium.............. 100
Newberry County enjoys the reputa
tion of being equal, if not superior, to
any county in the State in the produc
tion of field crops, and I see no reason
why our good people should not at
once take proper steps in the several
Alliances to make the competition
lively for the first premium offered.
This certainly is an age of progress, and
competition in the direction indicated
will bring the lands and the success of
our farmers promineotly before the
country with good results.
As an humble citizen and a farmer
of Newberry County, I most earnestly
urge that the Sub-Alliances, through
the County Alliance, take the matter
in hand at once by organizing and
taking proper steps to Isecure the first
premium offered. This will prove an
honor to Newberry County and a great

The Death of Mr. John E. Peoples.
(From the Newvs and Courier.]
ANDERSoN, March 18.-Thme death of
Mr. Johtn E. Peoples, which occurred
at Thomasv"ille, Georgia, yesterday,
was a very sad event. He had been
aflited with pulmonary troubles for a
long time, but last fall began to fail
rapidly, and therefo)re his death was
n]ot unexpected. Ini the death of Mr.
Peoples Ainderson loses one of her best
business men, andl the coimmunity a
good and true citizen. HeI was very
sucessful in business, and had amnassed(.
a fortune of $100,000 within the last tif
teen years. He took great interest in
the prosperity of his city, and whatever
promised goodl to the welfare of Ander-i
sn was sure of his support. He leaves
a wife and two smatll children to imourn
his death. His remains will reach here,
probably, on Saturday and will be
buried in the Baptist cemetery, oif whicht
church he was an active member.

A BIT OF LOCAL HISTORY.
How Squire McBee Boomed the C. & G.
Railroad in 1850.
[From the Greenville News.]
The article from the Abbeville Press
and Banner regarding the rescue of the
Columbia & Greenville railroad at a
critical period of its history, copied in
the G.reenville News of yesterday, was
incorrect in some important respects.
The hero of the story was Vardry
McBee, then universally known as
"Squire" McBee and the father of the
present "S<iuire" Alexander McBee
who is as widely known and popular as
was his father before him. It was about
1850. A meeting was held herein Green
ville to consider the prospects of the
railroad, which was then apparently
on its last legs because the money to
build it was not in sight. The gather
ing was on Main Street about where
the National Bank now stands. Judge
O'Neall, Judge Reed and other pronii
nent ten had spoken, the situation
had been thorougbly discussed and
there appeared to be no hope anywhere
and no suggestion of how to get out of
the pending trouble.
Squire IcBee was the largest stock
holder of the road, having taken ten
thousand dollars. He mounted the
stand and announced that he would
increase his subscription to fifty thous
and dollars and take seventy-five
thousand dollars of the bonds of the
This was an unheard of operation in
railroads for one individual in this sec
tion at that time and it took the breath
of the assemblage for a moment; then
there was a rush and a hurrah, every
body became infected with the Squire's
spirit of liberality and from that time
the road was an assured fact.
Squire 1lcBee's son Alexander-the
"Squire" McBee of today-had the
honor of carrying the chain for the
Columbia & Greenville road survey
across theSaluda,'swimming the stream
to do it. His brother, W. Pinckney
McBee, the father of Capt. W. V. Mc
Bee, the present president of the road,
was one of the chief surveyors on the
line and contracted the disease that
ultimately caused his death while en
gaged in that work.
Vardry _IcBee's generosity and fore
sight rescued the road from death; the
energy of his sons did much to hasten
its coinpletion; we unite with the Press
and Banner in the hope that the brains
and skill of his grandson will revive it
and make it as much a blessing to t he
up country as the heart of the first
squire could have desired.
The connection of the family with
the road is a curious one. It is strange
coincidence that the grandson of the
man who did ino;* to build it should
come back to be its president after hav
ing begun his career as brakeman on
another line and worked his way to
eminence as a railroad man away from
his native State.

work, performed to the satisfaction of
the people of this County. He is one

Jobhnstone and I. G. McKissick, for the
defence, we are told, were as profound

intelligent jury of this County. And it
should not be forgotten that it was
purely a "labor of love," on the part of
tie attorneys for the defence, as Moor

A "Tramp" Nuisance.
To the Editor of Thel Herald and
N~ews:-For several days past a worth
less character has been "tramping''
through towvnships eleven and two,
giving his namie as Goodman, claiming
to be a wvounded Conlfederate .soldier
fron North Carolina. That he has been
naimed is apparent,.as one of his hands
is said to be badly disfigured, but the
balance or his afflictions are exceeding
ly doubtful. He works the excrucia
ting misery dodge well, and is said, by
those who have seen him, to resemible
very much, an object of compassion,
but here ends the p)athletic, for when
refused any of his demands, he indulges:
ini abutsive and insulting language, a
sample of which any one can obtain
free t.y suggesting the Poor House to
him. He stopped at the gate of the
writer, in his absence, and demanded
shelter and food, up)on being made ac
cuaitedi with the above mentioned
Ifacts, amid offered food, he becanme very
busive and threatened to enter by
force and take possession. The lady of
tile house, after exhausting every other
kind of persuation, was compelled to
offer tile plea of a double barrelled shot
gun, which proved eminently satisfac
tory causing him to "do up distance"
with something like unseemingly
aste. It would b~e well that sonme one.
