There has been a good deal intimated
and insinuated in regard to the newly

di.like insinuations. If the new rail
road commissioner's character is not
what it ought to be why not come out
and say so and produce the evidence.
If it is alright then let us have no more t

reasons for changing his name, and I
then he may not. The Nerald and

seems now to have been healed. They
met at a dinner in New York one eve

hope to be a promising candidate for

seems to be in the lead at this time to

in Columbia, seems now to be an as

elected. A meeting will be held this

there are plenty of good men who willi

:o declarations of the National Farm
rs' Alliance and Industrial Union at
Deala and St. Louis. There is no
-uestion but that delegates to both the
cala and the St. Louis meetings, who
were present and participated in the
discussion and then voted upon the
rneasur-s, owe allegiance fully and
ompletely to the decision arrived at,
but in order to fix this doctrine as one
Df the fundamental principles of the
Alliance, and to make it certain that
every such delegate did owe such alle

adopted by the Supreme Council at
"Resolved, that we discuss freely, fully.
honestly and throughly all measures and res
>lutions presented for cotsideration. and
that where the action of the majority has

support to them, believing when this body
bas spoken it is our duty to stand as a unit
to the outside world."
"The adoption of this resolution for
ever settles it as to fealty on the part
Df those who participated in the meet
ing of the Supreme Council.
"As to the question of fealty to these
demands by the individual member
ship much might be said ; but since
these delegates to the Supreme Coun
eil were representatives elected by State
Alliances, which in turn were repre
lentative bodies composed of delegates
elected by the counties, and they in
turn were representative bodies com
posed of delegates elected by the subs
who composed the individual mem
bership of the Order ; now, therefore,
every single member of State, county
and sub-Alliances must of necessity be
bound by such action unless they re
pudiate it. It is one of the oldest and
best established principles of law that
the principal is always bound by the
act of his agent when the act of
the agent has been made known
to him and he has not repudiated it:.
Silence is a full and complete ratifica
tion of the act of the authorized ager.t
under all circumstances. This, it must
be admitted, fixes the question as to
ealty throughout the entire Order, and
pledges it firmly and irrevocably to the
St. Louis and Ocala demands, except
in such cases as it may have repudiated
such action. Brethren should remem

TE ACHRR$' COLUMN.
Much has been said about school di
tricts, and the common school system
generally. It is a system too often
criticised unfavorably by those who do:
not fully understand its merits. It has
not given entire satisfaction. What
system, or what law could do this?
There are always some ready to fight
that which they do not understand,
and understanding they do not cease
to fight. In order to have the school
system of a county accomplish its pur
pose, it must receive the support of the
people. If it does not receive this, it
must end a failure.
But we wish to lay before the readers
of this article some idea of the present
system and of the proposed aim.
Under the present system in New
berry County, each township, with one
exception, constitutes a district. These
districts are each under the control of
three trustees appointed by the County
Board of Examiners. These trustees
when they carry out the law have a
good deal of work to do. (a) They have
a right to locate schools wherever they
may think proper. (b) They can say
what the salaries of the different teach
ers in their district shall be. (c) They
can use money for the purpose of buil
ding school houses or for supplying
schools with the proper furniture.
In fact they have a great deal of
power. Having this power then, and
receiving very little compensation for
their services, is it best that they should
have a great many schools under their
cLarge? If they were paid for their
work then they might afford to give
the schools proper attention, but re
ceiving no pay it is quite different.
But let us look into the proposed plan
and see if there is any thing in it
worthy of notice.
The plan is to make the school dis
tricts of sueh size that there will be
only two schools in each district-one
for white and one for colored chldren.
The township lines would be disre
garded. Suppose that there are 700
square miles in Newberry County, then
there would be not more than thirty or
thirty-five districts, and these districts
would be of such shape and area that
every child could attend school. But
the question will be asked, what is to
be gained by this new system?
1st. It would increase the attendance
in the schools. The constitutional two
mills tax, is appropriated to the differ
ent districts in proportion to the aver
age attendance in the schools.
It is natural to suppose, tlen, that
each board of trustees would be anx
ious to have every child in their dis
trict enrolled so that they might get a
large part of the public fund. Having
only two schools, they could the more
easily attend to this work.
2nd. The teachers would get better
pay for their services. Now they re
ceive on an average, in he county,
about twenty-two dollars per month.
There being less schools by the new
plan, there would be more money for
3d. The teachers would prep ire theni
selves better for their work. Only
good teachers would be in demand.
Seeing that their positions depended
upon their thoroughness and applica
tion to study, they would give time and
thought to school work.
4th. The schoolhouses wou' d be bet
ter. As it is now, there are a great
many inferior school rooms in New
berry County. They are r nt at all
suited for school work. Each board of
trustees would doubtless go to work
and secure a good and comfortable
schoolhouse. They would ailso take
pride in having their buildings well
.5th. The people would have a right
to levy a special tax for the support of
schools. The school fund is too small.
Every one will ad mit thbis. It is often
necessary to supplempt thie school
fund by private subscripti:n. .This,
does very well in some corn mumities,
but in others is almost a failure. If
we can raise sufficient mon y to run
the school six months in 'the year,
every child will have the opportunity
of receiving a fair common school edu
There are other reasons why the
district system would be beneficial, but
it is unnecess~ary to give them here.
It must be admitted, however, that
there are some objections to the sys
temn, and some reasons why the old is
better than the new. These objections
we will consider at the next meeting
of the association.
On the 14th of February we wish to
have a large attendance at the Teach
ers' meeting. Everybody interested is

SBECAUSE I HAD A HEAVY BU
sness that this large stock of Men's,
Boys' and Children's Clothing is broken
in sizes and that you cannot have a se
lection for yourself. Here you make a
mistake. My stock is filled with all
the choice novelties and styl>s in Busi
ness and Dress Suits in Sacks, Cuta
ways o:'the ever-popular Prince Albert,
of imported Cheviots, Cassimeres,
Whipcords, Corkscrews and genuine
Clay Diagonals. I have a large and
well selected stock of fashionable goods
that are correct in styles, perfect in fits
and made with the best of trimmings,
and cannot be excelled for first class
My line of OVERCOATS is .the best
assorted stock in the city, embracing
all the latest styles and novelties in
this line. You should call and see
them as all attempts at description of
this line of garments fail. I ask you
to call and examine this line before
Just received a fullline of NECK
WEA R, which I call yourattention to.
The largest and best assortment at 2.5
cts. and 50 cts. that you have ever seen
in the city. They are all of the latest
patterns and styles that have been out
this season. It will pay you to call and
see them. Those who come here come
only for good, reliable goods-only for
truthful, straightforward methods. I
an willing to let others quote Satinet
and Cottonade prices with their all
wool stories-that's not my forte.
