NEWBERRY. S. C.
THUR: )AY MAY 1, 1890.
THE SUB TREAS'RY BILL.
The bill now before Congress known v
as the sub-treasury bill is attracting 1
some attention at this time. Judge d
Cothran has published a Aetter to his s
constituents explaining the features of (
the bill and giving his reasons for not c
favoring the scheme. We will publish f:
this letter in our next issue. V
We oelieve that the Farmers' Alli- v
anee of New berry has passed a resolu- (
tion endorsing the scheme. We have r
not read the bill carefully. but from i
what we know of its provisions we t
cannot see where it will benefit the far- N
mer of the South, even if it were to be- i
come a law, then besides that there is c
great doubt whether it is constitutional. I
judge Cothran thinks the bill uncon- t
There are two bills before Congress, r
one in the Senate and one in the t
House, looking to the same end.
Judge Cothran says: "The bills pro- t
vide for the storage in warehouses of a
all kinds of farm products which are t
suitable for storage and shipment, and E
not of an immediate perishable nature. ]
These warehouses are to be built all c
over the country at an estimated ex- c
pense, to be borne by the Government,
of somethinglike $50,0O'Y 0. Upon the
products so stored certificates shall be
issued by the Government, and to the
amount of SO per cent. of the value of
the articles so stored the Government I
shall lend to the holders of these certi- ]
ficates or receipts money at the rate of t
I per cent. per annum."
These seem to be the main features of
tbe bill, and the idea of borrowing i
money at 1 per cent. has no doubt f
taken possession of some of the advo- <
cates of the measure without stopping 1
to think much more on the question. i
It would be making out of the <
Government a banking institution. 1
Millions of dollars would be spent in
building warehouses. Salaried officers <
would have to be employed by the 1
Government. As Judge Cothran says,
common sense. sound reason, and good 1
judgment, are just as necessary in the
management of the affairs of govern
ment as they are in conducting a farm,
a store, or a bank.
The Government has a debt in round
numbers of 1,400 million dollars, upon
which it is paying an interest of from
: to 4 per cent. per onnum. What sort
of business sense would it be called 1
that would borrow money at 3 and 4
per cent., and then lend it at 1 per]
The farnurs of the country are the
main stay and support of the Govern
ment, and when they come to think of I
this matter seriously we do not see how]
they can favor it. At the same time
we would be pleased to have some of
these who favor the bill to give their
reasons therefor. WVe would be glad to 1

'We publish elsewhere under this I
heading a timely, conservative and
sensible article f.tom the Greenville
News. This is a time we need to have
conservative men, reasonable men, to
speak out and show the folly of ex-1
treme measures. We need more toler
ation with the opinion of one another
honestly and sincerely formed and ex-t
pressed. "What honest man would
respect or tolerate a man who would
fear to say what he thinks right, and
say and teach what he believes is I
wrong to put or keep a few dollars in
The action of certain Alliances in
boycotting the newspapers that do not (
agree with their way of thinking is an
effort to prevent free speech, or to pun-t
ish it or both, as the Greenville News e
"United we stand, divided we fall."
We need to pull together while we can,
t. decide what differences we havei
with mutual toleration, good humor, ~
and respect, and to work heartily to-C
gether for the general good. Toleration 5
of differences of opinion is absolutely
necessary in every civilized and free a
community. Anything else is barbar
isnm and tyranny."
We are glad to know that the notice t
we received from those eight members E
of thbe St. Paul's Alliance to stop their
paper was not the official action of the ~
Alliance, but wvas simply tbe action of '
the individuals themselves in their in
dividual capacity. An effort to pass I
such a resolution by the Alliance, we C
are reliably informed, was tabled. 'We f
are glad of this, because we are glad to r
know that the spirit of liberty and fair
play prevailed ini this Alliance.

The March Convention-Its Necessity.
To the Editor of The Herald and
ews:-The Convention of Farmer-4
hich met in Columbia in March last,
iet for the purpose of selecting a can
idate for Governor, whose name
iould be presented to the Democratic
onvention for that position. This
xurse was necessitated because of the
ct that it was apparent that unless it
as settled beforehand that there
ould be a number of names before the
onvention, and in that way the far
iers would divide their strength, and
erhaps be defeated, when, if united,
be contrary would be the result. It is
ell that this course was adopted, for
is apparent froni the fuss niade by
utsiders, that by so doing the farmers
ave scored a victory, and the opposi
ion feels that the day is lost to them
inless they can put something in
aotion to dissatisfy the farmers with
he action taken.
It is really and truly the old fight of
he University against the Agricultural
.nd Mechanical College-the latter was
hought to be dead when it was appar
ntly defeated at the session of the
Aegislature of 1887, its friends had been
lefeated at that session "horse, foot and
tragoons," and the University men
vere jubilant, but on the death of Mr.
lemson there was a change, and the
upposed corpse was resurrected and
as given new life, but there is a
hance to defeat the college yet, or at
east to strip it of its strength. If a
egislature should be elected opposed
o it this will be done, or even v'ith a
egislature favorable to it if a Governor
hould be elected opposed to it lie
night veto any appropriation made
or its support. Then, farmers, watch
losely, and do not allow yourselves to
ie used to defeat your own chosen
nterests. Iu. Mr. Tillman you have
me who is tried and true, one devoted
o your interests. He is a successful
armer, he is true to all of your inter
rsts, lie has the courage of his convic
ions, he is a tried and true Democrat
f the '76 type, and he is an honest
nan. Let not your enemies divide
tour ranks by bringing distrust be
;ween you and him, for just so surely
ts you do your cause and your interests
ill suffer thereby. SEv ENTV-SIX.
Tillman Democratic Club Formed at
A meeting of citizens was called at
he Farmers' Alliance Warehouise on
aturday evening at 5 o'clock for the
>urpose of organizing a Democratic

The secretary then proceeded to en

On motion of W. D. Hardy the tem

MIr. W. D. Hardy then offered the
ollowing preamble and resolutions:

his State have asserted tbat the farm

~Iarch Convention, and have de
ou nced the advocates of that conven

2. That we pledge ourselves to w ork
or the nomination of Capt. B. R. Till

3. That the conduct of the Univer
ity students towards the convention
va's disgraceful and shows a want of
iscipline on the part of the authorities
f the University.
4. That we respectfully suggest to
he Executive Committee of the Farm
rs' Association that future conven

5. That we denounce the charge that
re are Independents as a slander; and,
a our opinion, the charge is made to
efeat the measures d reform we are
ontending for, and to seep in office a
et of men who are not in sympathy
ith the masses.
6. That the action of Governor Rich
rdson, in refusing to exhibit to the
ommittee of citizens from Lexington
'ounty the records on file in his office,
San unwvarrantable assumption of an
bority, and deserves the censure of
very good citizen.
The resolutions were considered sep
rately. The first and second passed
ithout a dissenting voice. The third,
owever, elicited a warm discussion,
)r. Wyche and Pro!. Browne strongly
posing it. Mfr. F. V. Capers then of

esolution (third) read thus:
"That the conduct of the university

security and quietness. In lthes( cir
cuustances there is no reason or excuse
for the use of the boycott.
What is the object of resolutions
such as those we have referred to, I.ed
by the sub Alliances?.
They are intended to irevent or pun
ih, or both. They c:m have no other
purpose, although we doubt if one tnitan
-in a dozen of those who vote for theit
considers the meaning of his vote and
the action it helps to produce.
They are to prevent the editors I
against whom they are directed froni
expressing their honest sentitientls if
tbose sentinients are against those held
by the sub Alliances. Yet what honest

Men are to be punished, for what?
For speaking their sentiments aind

using their rights as free Aitericaa

wo that conldetely overshadow the

Starting fron Bayou Sara, the first

An Earthquake in San Francisco. -
SAN FRANCISCo. April 24.-One of
the most severe shocks of earthquake
experienced here for a long time was
felt in this city and neighboring locali

this morning. Buildings were shaken
perceptibly and persons were aroused
from their sleep. Plastering fell from
walls in places, but no serious damage
has yet been reported.
A dispatch from Mayfield says that
the shock was very severe there. The
railroad bridge was rendered impassa
ble, as the piers, sixty feat high, settled
a few inches, and the rails spread about
a foot. The ground in places settled
six to twelve inches.
Tfhe earthquake was general in this
section of the State. The shock was
very sharp in this city, but no serious
damiage was done. The walls of a few
houses, including the United States
appraisers' building, in which the
Federal Courts are held, were cracked
and there was considerable alarm felt
by persons who were aroused from
The most serious damage was re
bridge was thrown two feet out of line
and the approach to it damaged. Gas
mains were -disturbed at Gilroy, and
many chimneys were thrown dowvn in
the neighborhood of Watsonville. In
some localities as many as a dozen dis
