WHY NOT A CANNI\G FACTOnY.
Why could not Newberry have a
canning factory. The establishment
of such a factory would be "enterprise
and progress." We do not mean for the
k town or the county to vote a tax to
build the factory, but it would be a
:_ good thing for both if some of our busi
ness men who have the means would
thus invest it. And we see no reason
why it could not be made to pay a nice
profit on the investment.
Such an enterprise would help the
4 town in many ways. It would give
employment to more people, and
? would help the business of the town
by putting in circulation more money
Then it would give our friends in the
country a ready and convenient mar
ket for their tomatoes, peaches, black
berries, apples and so forth, and if they
r- could turn these things into money
they would be surprised to find how
much they are now wasting.
We heard the other day of one farmer
who last year had made for himself
about 500 three pound cans and we
I have no doubt but that he put up that
much fruit and what he did not want
for his own family he turned into
It is said that it does not take much
capital to put up a canning factory and
we believe it would pay. It is worth
investigating. Will not some body
who has a little money to invest make
the start and the capital would soon be
The war is truly on with the State of
South Carolina and the Coosaw people.
An injunction has been secured by
Coosaw in the L uited States court.
? In about ten days the argument will be
heard on motion to dissolve it. The
w hole business is likely to remain in
the courts for a year or two at least.
N. The State will lose a good big revenue
~ in the shape of royalty besides the ex
' penses of paying attorney fees and
other ineidentals. It may be all right
and the S.ate may profit by the whole
business, but so far we have failed to
see just how it is coming about. We
presume Gov. Tillman and the phos
phate commission know what they are
: doing. There is one thing, however,
that we have never exactly understood,
: and that is why the State wants to in
terfere with the Coosaw Company and
stop it from digging rock. All the
State wants is the royalty promptly
Spaid, and we do not see what dih'erence
-it makes whether this royalty is paid
by the Coosaw Company or some other.
If tbe royalty is too low, why let the
State raise the price. The record shows
that the Coosaw Company has always
paid the royalty promptly and pays a
hrg amout. That is what the State
We-trust it will all come out right in
-the end and that the State will not be
the loser, and we hope that Gov. Till
man will be able to justify his course.
The Greenville News says "there is
no getting around the fact that South
ern Democratic State treasurers have
made a bad record." Defalcations have
occurred in Louisiana, Alabama, Mary
*land and Arkansas. The News thinks
-the trouble comes from the long con
tinuance in power of one political
-party, thereby producing stagnation,
-and no doubt there is much truth in
this. But the one who succeeds an
other in such an office even of the same
political party ought to see to it that
*the cash is alright and that the vouch
ers are proper.
This thought leads us to suggest that
in such offices where a lot of money is
-handled one person ought not to be
-eligible to be his own successor. This
would necessitate short settlements
and a turning over and an accountinig.

LOQKS LIKE PALME1:.
'The p-aptrs ye terday stated that the
tight f,r -rte States 5euator in II'i

Governor Til-nan's Sensibe iteply-The
Que tion Being a Division of Our School
Fund Between Whites aid Blacks.
[The State, sth.]j
Quite a spicy correspondence is now
going on between the Governor of':
South Carolina and the Secretary of
the United States Department of the
Interior, and the Governor last night'
gave it to the public. Lasf June the
United States Congress passed an act
"To apply a portion of the proceeds of
the public lands to the more complete
endowment and support of the colleges
for the benefit of agriculture and the
mechate arts established under the
provisions of an act of Congress, ap
proved July 2d, 1S62." The act appro
nriated $15,0a+A to the agricultural col
leges of this State, beginning June
:;0th, and an annual increase of $1,000
over the preceding year for ten years.
The act provided that the division of
the rn'mey between white and colored
colleges should be "equitable." The
State Legislature passed an act accept
ing the fund and dividing the money
equally. Gov. Tillman in January
notified Secretary Noble of the action
of the State, and -sent him a copy of the
act. On January I1 Gov. Tillnian re
ceived this letter fro m Secretary Noble.
It is self-explanatory.
Hon. B. R. Tillman, Governor of
Sir-I have the honor to acknowl
edge the receipt of your letter of Feb
ruary 24, enclosing a certified act of
your Legislature, accepting the pro
visions of the act approved August 30,
1S':0, making appropriation for agricul
The provision of said act of your
Legislature proposes to divide the said
fund equally between the Claflin Agri
cultural College (colored) and the Clen
sou Agricultural College (white.) The
school population, according to the
latest count on tile in this ollice (filed
April, isSo.) is 3-..9 per cent. white and
64.1 per cent. colkred. I am of the
opiniou that the ' greement for an
equitable division of this fund between
institutions for the education of the
races will be met by dividing the same
in the said ratio of the school popula
tion in this case. Very respectfully,
JoH N W. NOBLE, Secretary.
The Governor was ill when he re
ceived the communication, but as soon
as he recovered he sent the following
repDly on February 16, which also ex
Hon. VJoh W. Noble, Secretary of the
inteiOr, Washington, 1). C.:
Sir-Rep ving to your letter of Janu
arv 31st his been delayed by illness.
The question as to what would be a
"just and egqutable" division between
our white and colored agricultural and
mechanical colleges of the fund appro
rriated by Congress last year, is, so far
as this State is concerned, no longer an
op)en one. Our Legislature has acted
and adjourned, and will not meet again
before November next. I have no
powver in the lpremises. Please let me
know wvhether you refuse to pay South
Carolina her quota upon the leasis pro
posed by the General Assembly, and,
also, wh'ether you insist that the school
population, as shown by the census of
IE), instead of 1890i, is to govern.
Further, I will call your attention to
these facts: Over 50 per cent. of the
school tax of South Carolina is paid by
the whites, while tlhe negroes receive
the benefit of over half of it-. Second,
the relative demand for collegiate edu
cation, which Congress provided for,
bears no relation to the relative mnem
bers of the two races. Third, your re
fusal to allow this money to be divided
as our Legislature has ordered will
cripple the colored college very serious
ly, because, relying on this fund, it has
already entered upon enlargements of
teaching force and facilities which will
have to be stopped; while the Clemson
College (white) is not yet in operation
and e~an easily wait an appeal to Con
ress next December. I ask you, then,
o weigh your actions well before doing
anything to injure our colored col
lee. Very respectfully,
B. R. TILLMAN,
Governor South Carolina.
The question of the division is an in
teresting one, -md all anxiously await
Secretary Noble' further action. The
Governor thitiks that the ternm "eqit
able'- may be construed in various
ways and is ambiguous.

COLU.MBIA, March 9.-One of the
most startling and practical results of
the Coosaw case is the retuhrn of ro::k
mined for the last month made to the
Comptroller General. The returin for
February, 1s90, was about 25,000 tons.
TIhe eturn for February, 1SOI, is about
9,000 tons. Whether this is or not the
result of the present litigration is a
mxell question of law and fact.
Senator Smiythe wa called oin at the
