T=. E ALLIANCE AND THE F.RESS.
South Carolina, we are proud to say,
stands foremost to-day among the Alli
ance States of the Union; it has taken
the right arm of Kansas and is moving
frward to a consummation of the
grand designs of the order.
-; The great success the Alliance has I
met with in this State has aroused
the politicians and they are seeking to
nd a means to break down our noble
S The means they have adopted seems
to be a subsidized or controlled press
controlled by those who oppose the
Alliance and its good work.
-There are already several papers in
this State under such control or in such
We are glad to chronicle the success
of the Alliance in this State or that of
any organization that will benefit the
farmers. But all this talk about there
being a "subsidized or controlled press"
in South Carolina in opposition to the
Alliance and its good work is the
merest claptrap and buncombe. We
do not believe any such stuff and it is
a very serious charge and the Cotton
Plant ought to name the "several pa
pers under such control or in such
We receive at this office nearly every
paper published in South Carolina and
we read them rather closely and have
been unable to detect any evidence
which indicates that they have been
subsidized. Several of them have Alli
ance columns, and all, so far as we have
observed, are always ready and willing
to publish any Alliance news or infor
mation that the Alliance or any of its
members may desire published. The
Cotton Plant should specify which "the
several"papers,are and adduce the proof
that they are "subsidized" and are try
ing to break down the Alliance, or re
tract its broad and sweeping charge.
Most of the editors of the State are
men of at least ordinary intelligence,
and have opinions on public questions,
and, as is their right, exercise the priv
ilege of expressing these opinions.
Not every one who makes the biggest
profession of friendship always proves
the truest friend. No editor in South
Carolina who had no broader views
than personal interest, would oppose
what he conceived to be the best inter
ests of the farmers, nor would he try to
break down any noble order of theirs.
It would be suicidal for him to do so.
What is a politician any way; and
iwhg are "the politicians" referred to;
and how have they adopted means to
"subsidize" or "control" the press? If
"the politicians" who get into the Alli
'ance, and from the Alliance into office
don't break down the Alliance, it will
stand the test. The press of South
Carolina has never tried to break down
the Alliance nor in any other way tried
to injure the farmers. The Alliance is
eseg taalmore danger from the
Alliance politicians than it is from the
press. ______ _
We have received the pros1us of
a new paper to be published i ie in

weeks, and will appear on or before the

"Public Opinion will be Democratic.

political Baal. Will think as it pleases,
and, without fear, say what it thinks."
The Phosphate Commission have
takeli formal possession of the phos
phate territory heretofore worked by
the Coosaw Mining Company. It
promises to be a lively fight as the
Coosaw people claim they have a con
tract with the State for this territory.
The Coosaw company is one of the
largest companies in the State engaged
in the digging of phosphate rock. Last
year they mined about 107,000 tons and
paid into the treasury of the State
about $107,000 as royalty. They stopped
work last Saturday and thus threw out
of employment about 500 hands, and of
course the royalty they have been pay
-ing the State will stop until they begin
work again. They have a lot of money
invested in their plant and the outlook
now is for a lot of litigation.
'We trust the matter will all be settled
amicably and for the best interests of
the State. Although the State cannot
afford to be unjust to the company.

- THE THREE C'S.
Hon. D. H. Chamberlain, now the
receiver of the South Carolina railroad,
has recently been appointed receiver of
the Three C's. The appointment is con
sidered a good one. Mr. Chamberlain
has managed the affairs of the South
Carolina railroad with signal ability,
and he can work the two roads together
with advantage to both probably.
There are now about 177 miles of road
built and in operation belonging to the
Three C's. As we understand it, Mr.
Chamberlain has the power to continue
the construction as well as to operate
it. It seems to us that it would be
greatly to his advantage to finish the
section of road from Edgefield to
Blacksburg, known as the Augusta
Division. It is graded nearly the en
tire length and in addition there are
about $275,000 or $300,000 subscribed in
township bonds on this division that
would become payable if the road were
built. The cost of completing this sec
tion would not be great and the South
Carolina road now has trains between
Edgefield and Augusta and if the sec
tion of road from Blacksburg to Edge
field were built the same rolling stock
could be utilized in operating it. We
are interested in the building of this
division --nd we believe it would pay to

An exchange asks this question:
"What is it that reminds you of wink

rect. It is, "Doing business without
advertising-you know what you are
doing but the girl does not." This sug
gestion is thrown out to some mer
chants who may see it and have goods
to sell, but who have never thought of
the value of judicious advrtising.
It is said now that the cotton crop
this past year will not exceed eight

The Attorney-General has rendered
his decision in regard to fees of sheriffs

no appropriation has been made by
which sheriffs can get these fees, and
he advises them to file their claims
with the Comptroller-General who
will have to apply to the next Legisla
ture asking funds to pay the same.
The Three C's is now in the hands of
a receiver and there will be no more

THE PHOSPHATE WAR.
The Commission Take Possession of the
Coosaw Territory-The Company to Ap
peal to the United States Court
for an Injunction.
[Special to the Register.]
CHARLESTON, March 2.-The war be
tween the State and the Coosaw Phos
p hate Company was inaugurated to
day, when the Phosphate Commission
ers, who went down to Beaufort yes
terday, embarked in a tug chartered by
the State, and with Governor Tillman
on board went down to Coosaw and
took possession of the territory to which
the Coosaw company claim exclusive
right. Possession was taken by each
member of the Commission dropping a
lead line overboard and sounding the
bottom. The Coosaw company has
shut down its machinery and is now
idle with its 1,000 or more employees.
It is understood that in case any per
son or company attempts to more rock
in their territory the company will ap
ply to the United States Court for an
injunction, as the river now is a navi
gable stream and under the jurisdiction
of the United States. It is understood
that it is going to be a war of freeze out.
The Coosaw company will not mine
any rock itself and the United States
Court will be invoked to prevent any
body else from mining phosphate in
the disputed territory.
The Coosaw company last year
shipped 100,000 tons of rock to Europe,
and if the litigation is urolonged this
much rock will be withdrawn from the
market. 'Ie land phosphate miners
are jubilant and already talk of raising
the price of land rock to $9 a too. The
litigation also is expected to boom the
recently discovered Florida phosphates.
No process has yet been issued by the
United States Court here.
Cave Creek Township, Lancaster County,
Bonds Are Invalidated.
[Special to Augusta Chronicle.1
CHARLESTON, S. C., Feb. 28.--The
United States court to-day decided the
suit of the Massachusetts and Southern
Construction Company vs. the Town
ship of Cave Creek, Lancaster County.
The bill was brought to enforce the
delivery of $19,000 bonds of the town
ship, issued in aid of the Three C's road.
The refusal to issue the bonds was based
on the ground that the amount was in
-excess of the 8 per cent. constitutional
limit affixed to the indebtedness of mu
nicipalities. It was submitted on proof
that 8 per cent. of the assessed valua
tion of the taxable property in the
township is $18,570, or $430 less than
the debt incurred. The court dismissed
the suit on that ground, taking the val
uation of 1888, the date of the act of
the Legislature creating the debt. The
court rules: "The act having created a
debt obnoxious in amount to the pro
visions of the constitution, the whole
debt is invalid, and it is not competent
for the court to decla--e so much valid
as comes within the constitutional pro-.
This throws out $19.000 of the bonds
issued in aid of the Three C's road.

Governor Tillman, of Scuth Carolina,
has been enjoying the privilege of occu
pying a seat in the House of Rtepresen
tatives, which is a privilege common
to the governors of States. He is a
young-looking man, with smooth face
and dark, grimy complexion. He is
rather tall and slender, and somewhat
awkward in his movements.
His hands are rough and marked
with the scars of toil, and the brawny
wrists are not decorated with cuffs.
He has a heavy chin and a mouth
every line of which denotes firmness,
the expression being set and not broken
at any time by a smile. There is a
blankness about his countenance,
caused by the absence of an eye. The
socket of his left eye is empty. He
bears only a slight resemblance to his
brother, Representative Tillman1. The
man was a stranger to the members of
the House, as well as to the public.
He does not appear old enough to be
a governor, and he does not look like
the governor of a State like South Caro
lina. He seems more like a son of the
ustling and hardy West. His conver
sation is not fluent, but the'lack of that
quality seems to come from a contempt
for talk and not from a lack of capabil-!
ity. H sevirdently a man of bhains.

SENATOR HEARST Is NO MORE.
The Death of the California Millionaire
and Democratic Senator.
*WASHINGToN, J). C., February 28.
Senator Hearst, of California. (iied at
9.10 o'clock to-nigh t.
Senator George Hearst wvas the son
of William G. 1[earst, of Sout Caro
lina, and was born in Franklin
County, Missouri, on the 'Ird of Sep
tember, 1820. H ec enjoyed but fe ad
vantages and received a comm.mi
school education. H is early manhood
was spent upoin his father's fa-m.
When quite young lhe entered th'e
mining business, out of which lie sub
seuently made his enormous fortu no.
His mining~ interests have grown to
such an extent that his mills give emt
ployment to about 2,000 men. HeI was
one of the first to go to California (lur
ing the gold tever, and aacer a year- of
hard work discovered a rich qJuartz
ledge which was the foundation of his
fortune. After accumulating a large
amount of money lie embarked in the
merchandisng business in Sacramen-to,
from wvhich he retired wvithi forty dol
lars to return to the river bar to work
gold. He went fronm field to field dig
ging for gold and by 1805 was credited
as being worth a millhion doliars. H-e
lost considerable of this hard-earned
money- in the financial troub!es that
followed the war. He made cons.idet a
ble money in real estate in San Fran
cisco. In 1860 he organized what has
been one of the leading mi ningz firms
in the world. Mr. Hearst was con
sidered the lar-gest mtine and land
owner in the world.
His first political mark was made as
a member of the Californ ia State eiris
lature, to whieh lie was elected in ]s:5.
He was named by Glovernoi- Stoneman
to fill the unexpired termi of Senator
Miller and was sub sequentlv ele-cte.1 t-)
succeed Senator WiUamIS. ReCpublican.
Senator Hearst was one of the iea
ing Democrats of the Pacific coasr.
He leaves one son, William R. H ear t,
the editor atyl owner of the .San Fran
cisco ENamrn- er.
Senator Hearst was quite a charitn'ole
man. Hie established a ntumber of in
stitutious for the poor. He was the
friend and patron of Miss Eleanor Cal

South Carolina is arousing herself on
the subject of education, and the teach

Should be. There are over 2,000 white

are iem:bers of the Association. Those
who have kept up the meetings are
anxious to have the hearty co-opera
tion and presence of their fellow teach
ers. North Caroli-la has a flourishing
nieetieg at Morehead. The teachers
own their grounds and buildings, and
last year had about 2,000 teachers pres

to have every white teacher take one

History ot South Carolina.
We notice that two histories of Sout b

by Mr. J. L. Weber, School Commris

gerni mni will be presented to the~

we now have, ami it does not fully

sould be. Although it is the only one
we now have, anid shrould be used on
that account~ at ieast, mn all public

find a gr'eat mny n' teachers whvio do not
teach South Cairolina history at all,
that is, no mrie thanr is found ini the
linitedi Startes histories. In conse
quenice of this, pupils know as much
aout the history of New, York or anys

striking the child wlth the axe and
ran to its help, wresting the bloody
axe from the woian's hands. The

The Aliance Warehouse Burned With All
[Special to The State. I
GRI:EvrL.LrE, S. C., March 2.-The
Farmers' Alli:ee warehouse in thit
city was destroyed by fire at 11 o'clock
to-night, together 'with 144 bales of
( otton, fifty tons of guano and other
things. The building was three stories
high, and had been finished and taken
ciarge of by the alliance about twc
months ago. The fire was discovered
in the second story, where the cottou
was stored, and is. thought to havE
been incendiary, a,lrough it is strangE
how any one cauld have gotten insidt
to start it.
The loss is about $10,00, and is full
covered by insurance. Every bale 01
cotton is insured for about fo-rty dol
lars. The building was insured foi
$4,lO, about its full value. Tht
only things saved were a few ve
hicies from the cellar. The walls o1
the building are standing.
