WE MCST WORK TOGETHER.
Let u- talk bu iness occasionally and
take a l:ttle rest from polities. We
talk about gcttiig totgether politically.
That is right and sensible talk. We
Aiul( get together from a buiness
stan(lpoiit, too. I f there was colCen
Iiato 11 of etort to build up the busi
itss of our coillnliiities,and our county
we would get along better. We should
be less suspicious of each other. We
should be le-s enviots. What is a
ienelit to our comliiinity or our town
or our county will help us. There
hould be no coniliet of interest be
tween the town and the country.
What helps one will benefit the other.
A prosperous, a growing and a live
town in ally section of ttiitry is an
ini ieaton 1hat the "ountry is prosper
IfI we should live in the country we
should be proud to see the town that
is near us grow and prosper. And on
the other hand, if we live in the town
we should in every way possible help
build up the country around us. We
must work together. There should be
no antagonisl between town and
country, for they are mutually depend
ent on one another and mutually ben
eficial the one to the other.
The man who tries by word or deed
to create an antagonism between the
two is an enemy to both, and is an in
jury to the coinmunity in which he
lives, whether it be in the town or the
country. Some do it for popularity.
But you had better watch such a man,
whoever he is or wherever he lives. He
is the friend A' none. We are all akin,
and we should work tog-ther.
An exchange aptly and truly says:
"No coun ty caln prosper unless there
is a close union of all classes on mat

something that mz:ust benefit all classes
in the county. It is a good thing in

all classes to meet together occasional

building up a great paternal govern

FACTS VS FANCY
The Herald and News has been to
.-'uie trouble during the past few days 1
to ascertain the number of liens given <
in this county for advances on the s
crops and the amount of the same.
We have also ascertained from the 1
officers of the Newberry National :
Bank the amount of their loans and dis- t
counts to the farmers of the countv. t
lhese figures may be of interest to the :
farmers of this county at this time, es- a
pecially so as the politicians and office <
seekers are talking of repealing the i
lien law, and are busily engaged abus
ing national banks and endeavoring to c
instil in the minds of the farmers that t
both these institutions are the worst of t
enemies to our farmers. These argu
ments are the fancies of those who
make them, without any intention, ]
possibly, to deal in idealities that can
not be realized, but at the same time
making war on two institutions that
are largely used by the farmers of this
c )unty, and without which, no doubt,
they would find it inconvenient to se
cure the necessary means to make 1
their crops, unless these men would
ofTer theni a substitute that is better.
The sub-treasury bill does not meet E
the case, as under it the government 1
does not propose to loan money until :
the farmer has the produce to put in i
the warehouse, and when he has this 1
he can get the money for it without t
the warehouse or sub-treasury either.
To abolish the lien law, according to
Capt. Tillman, would be to take awayi
from the small farmer his only basis of
credit, and force him to work for the
landowner for wages or part of the
crop, and thus tend to build up a
landed aristocracy, the worst and most
oppressive we could possibly conceive.
But what are the facts and figures in
the case. We have endeavored to get
the number and total amount of the
liens indexed in the Clerk's office up to
date for advances. According to the
figures thus obtained there are 1,8:11 of
these liens and the total amount is
$193,75i.95. This makes the average
about $100 each. The largest lien in
dexed was for about $1,200, and the
great majority is for small amounts.
The total amount of loans to farmers
by the Newberry National Bank is in
round numbers $250,000 to date this
year, and to all other persons, $200.0O.
Which shows that the farmers patron
ize the Newberry Bank more largely
thanall other citizens.
This makes in round numbers $4.50,
000 advanced to the farmers of this
county by the use of these two sources
before the crop is made.
We have not the figures of the pri
vate bank at Prosperity, but we would
suppose that at a low estimate they
loan to farmers $20,000 or $25,000 to
help them make the crop.
Now, how the sub-treasury is to
take the places of these two is beyond
our comprehension, and we admit that
we are unable to see how it will help
the cotton farmer at all.
Under the sub-treasury bill the gov
ernment proposes to loan the farmer
money to the amount of S0 per cent. of
the value of his cotton, deposited in the
government warehouse, at one per cent.
But when the farmer has his cotton he
does not need to borrow money from
any source because his cott on is money.
The remedy wanted is some plan by
which the farmer can get cheap money
t> help him make his crop, or bet
ter still, some plan by wvhich
he can make his crop withcut
borrowing money or getting supplies
fromu any source to make the crop.
We just put out these facts and
figures for the consideration of our
farmer friends and trust they will give
them some study.
The total cotton crop of Newberry
County will not exceed 253,000 bales,
and a high estimate for it is one million
dollars, and fully two-thirds of it is
spent before it is made. The remedy
most needed is some plan by which
this can be reversed, and then the farm
ers can hold the cotton to suit their
THE COUNrY CAMPAIGN.
Thle State Campaign is virtually
closed. The County Campaign opens
on Saturday, as arranged by the County
Executive Committee and runs through
the greater part of August. We trust
this county canvass may be conducted
in a friendly and manly manner and
that the voters will be untrammelled
by any caucus nominations or sugges
tions or any iron clad oath to support
any mau or set of men. Let every free
white Democrat assert his manhood
and vote for the best men for the va
rious county offices to be filled, and not
permit any half dozen or more men fix
up any ticket for him to swallow
whether he wants to or not.
The Herald and News has no ticket
fixed up, but we hope to see good and
efficient officers chosen.
Then let our voters see to it that good
and capable men are eiected. The
decision of this matter is in the hands
of the people and to their verdict all of
us must submit. Then every man]
should see to it that he does his duty ~
faithfully and well.
Let every man be true to himself,:
his country and his God and all will
will end well.
These are wonderous times we are
living in now. The country seems to 1
be producing a full erop) of demagogues
and half-rate politicians, and little,
time-serving statesmen. But things
will all come right by and by.

Some of the committee seem to think
;bat there is to be a separate box for the
ongressional election. If so no ar
-angement is made for it. The ('on
ressionalConvention adopted the same
-ules as governed in 18S6, and the
ounty Chairman of each county was
,nstructed to have them published.
There can be no question that there
)ught to be a separate box for the (on
;ressional election. It is not fair to any
>f the candidates to have them voted
or on the same ticket with the county
)tihcers, and possibly that is not the
neaning of the rule adopted, but it is
,o construed by many.
We suppose the County Chairman
ill send in for publication the rules to

rules adopted for the county officers do
aot apply in that case.

ad a brief inte'rview with (Captain
hel regardimng the political situation.
Ve lhave not learned the result of the
anfeww-e, but presumie ilno definite
n'f~rstant'I rm~' W:c- :i rri ved at
w ilat )o Tilman and i- Lieutenant, Seek
It seelti:": n_ever to have ,ccurrel to
the iass of Tillman's followers that lie
and his immediate corps of assistants
are only using the people for their
own personal advancement-for their
own selfish purposes. The mass of the
people are unquestionably seeking the
public welfare, partly through the lift
ing of burtlens which they think bear
to( heavily upon themselves, partly
through the establishment of public
measures which they believe will give
all of us a more wise and equal gov
ernment than we have hitherto en
joved. I therefore give the people
at large credit for entirely honorable
and proper motives. It is their right
to protect themselves ; it is their duty
to further public Interests, consequent
lv, they deserve praise for every honest
eflort t~o compass these two objets.
But in their anxiety about these
things they have allowed themselves
to be captured by vague, intangible
suirestions of benefits to themselves
and to the State in general, have al
lowed themselves to be charmled by
'words without knowledge'' ; have
allowed themselves to be excited by the
1o st unfair appeals to their prejudices;
have allowed themselves to be bound
to the suport of mOe I who intend to
use theta ierely as the nicans of riding
into distinguished and money-paying
oflices. They ought to have learned
by this time what these men are work
in- for. I believe they will finally
awake to a Comprehensionl of the situ
ation. The danger is that they will
awake too late, and that like the vislou
which showed King Priam the confla
gration of his empire, their senses will
disclose to them their errors when all
hope of remedy is past.
I know that our people have had a
poor opportunity to investigate the
situatiol,. For years a band of blatant
denagogues, with Tillnan at their
head, have been crying to them that
they were robbed and persecuted, and
there was no counter argument made.
I know that unfavorable seasons have
shortened their crops; that inefficient
labor has prevented them from reaping
the harvests they ought to have had;
that an outrageous tariff'has compelled
them to pay nearly twice as much as
they ought to have paid for nianufac
tured articles; that every crop has been
produced at great expense, at great
risk, and with infinite care and worry.
I also know that the pending political
campaign, instead of bringing before
the people a clear, rational, fair discus
sion of practical questions, has involved
them in a perfect cyclone of wvrath,
personal abuse, windy platitudes, ap
peal to envy wicked prejudice, all
clothed in words "full of sound and
fury, signifying nothing," so far as
their interests are concerned.
But perhaps 1 will he pointed to Till
man's platform, as many call it-the
platform of the March Convention,
gotten up by G. W. Shell and his com
mittee. How many iteins in this plat
form have been really discussed in the
campaign? Not one! Tillman has
abused the railroad commissioners as
much as he dared; and he has grumbled
and insinuated considerably against t he
department of agriculture. But lie has
never pretended to show hiow we are
to improve either thing. He has raved
about aristocracy and oli,rarciy; but
there is nothing in the platform about
those two things. He has complained
of undue representation of the lower
counties in the Legislature: but there
is nothing in the plattrm about that.
He may have claimed in his speeches a
re-apportionmuent of thle State coinvenl
tio)n; but I aii not aware of it. And,
by the wamy, how would that high tein
any man's burthens? All the other
nmtters, both of his platform and of
public interest, he ignores. He says
nothing of the Clemson College (no
doubt because he knows it is secure);
lie says nothing of a conistit utionial coni
vention; he says nothing of the man
agenment of the phosphate interests of
the State; he says nothing practical
about reducing salaries or reducing
the number of otliees, although giv
ing us very plainly to understand
that he is niot willing for the
goverinor's salary to lie lowered about
thme management either of the rail
road commission or the agricultu
ral dlepartmwent. In fine, lie has gone
back to the fanatical howlings of the
Shell manifesto. because lhe counts
upon01 carrying the peole through ex
eitemenit andi class p-ejudice, and not
upon the strength of implrovemuenits
which he has to suggest in our laws or
But Mr. Tillmian dilates at great
length upon aristocracy and( rinugs. He
wishes the people to tielieve that they
have been ini t he hands of tyran ts and
robbers, for lie imagines t hat they will
thus be induced to take up a new set of
men, to wit, himself and his travellIiing
company and his henchmen. And
right there lie discloses his whole dle
sign. It is a light of those out (of oflie
against those who are in oflice. IR is a
fight to place Tillman and his associ
ates in the oflices which another set
has held. J putt the question to myi
fellow-citizens of Newberry County,

know a single prominent nian in the
Tillmian party who is not an office
seeker? I(1(o not mean by this to ques
tion the disinterestedness of zealous
workers in the Tpillnman cause; for, uin
fortunately, the leaders have excited a
great many honest, patriotic, pure, un
selfish men to work for them. .But do

Protracted neeting comiences at
Snivrna next Friday and at Trinity
Satuday before the second Sunday in
Inder a resolution of the Tillman
cautcus, the Tillmai Ien niet at Trinity
the 2:k to vote for netubers of the Leg
islature and Senate and elect delegates
to the Caucus Convention. There
were about 15 Tillmanites present and
about the samte number of Antis. Mr.
R. F . Reeder was called to the chair
and Ir. J. Y. Floyd acted as secretary.
The resolutions passed at the caucus
were read. Mr. W. G. Abranis moved
that the meeting take a vote for a mem
ber of the Senate and the members of
the House and elect one delegate to the
Caucus Convention. Mr. R. T. Reagin
miade a vigor :us speech against the
club taking any action on the matter.
Said fte would vote for Mr. Tillman
but did not propose to be gagged in his
other votes, declared the whole thing
to be undemocratie and a cutting
loose from the )entocratic party. The
chairinan putt the questionl antd onte
vote wvas cast for the resolution and
four ag~ainlst it. Mr. Abratns gave tile
Tiimanites a piece of his mnind and
left the inleetingi amid the cheers of the
Antis. The Ineetinlg was enjoyedl by
he Antis and we are satisfied tile Tfill
ian following is wveakening~ in No. 6,
and if tile Caucus Convention had put
a ticket in the field on th'e 25th, No. 6
would have downted it with a Hurrah.
