The Convention in Columbia.
On last Tuesday, in answer to a call
from Hon. W. D. Mayfield, State Supt.
of Education, a good number of School
Commissioners and others interested in
common school work met in Columbia.
Such a convention has not been cailed
for years, and this move of Mr. May
field was certainly in the right direc.
tion. Many of tue leading educators of
the State were present, and although
several of then are not engaged in
comion school work yet they showed
agreat interest in it, as good and patri
otic men should do.
Several questions of great im,portance
The first to be discussed was the ne
cessity of having the examinations for
teachers certificates' made more thor
ough. The importance of having qual
ified teachers was earnestly insisted
upon, and there is no doubt that the ex
aminations this year will he more thor
ough than they have been for years.
The importance of redistricting the
different counties of the State was the
next question discussed. There was a
difference of opinion on thi sujeet.
some of the commissioners held that it
would be inadvisable to redistrict the
whole of every county in the State, but
the majority were in favor of it. A
resolution was passed, however, which
leaves the matter to the direction of
the County i oards. The majority
yiellded to the minority.
The question of levying an extra tax
under the Act of 18SS was the third
subject for consideration. Here again
there were too factions. The minority
urged that the special tax in county
districts would be two small and that
it would create too much opposition.
The majority were in favor of the tax
and a resolution favoring it in the
school districts was passed over the
minority. This time the strongest
party refused to give way. In our
opinion the weaker party were right
and it will not take a long time to
show it, provided the tax is levied.
The question of holding institutes
for the training of teachers during the
summer was also discussed. Several
.of the most important educators in the
State took part in this discussion,
among whom were, Profs. Joynes, R.
Means Davis, Clinkseales, Archer,
Morrison and others of not less impor
tance-. The training of teachers was
urged as a necessity, as it is only
through the Institute that they can be
trained. One commissioner, we will
not mention his name here, opposed
the Institute on economic grounds, and
insisted that the Association meets the
demand. When a resolution was of
fered, however, favoring the holding of
institutes this summer, the affirmative
vote was nearly unanimous. We will
have institutes this summer.
Yes, the convention in Columbia
was a good one, and will do much to
increase the efficiency of the schools of
the State, The Commissioners and
Boards of Examiners should do all in
their power to assist Mr. Mayfield in
his work, for be is certainly in earnest.
In many things he is surely right, and
may be in all that he has so far advo
The Extra Tax.
In Columbia on last Friday, the Con
vention, called by Superintendent
Mayfield, passed a resolution which
urges school commissioners and Coun
ty Boards of Examiners to advocate

2. The following resolutions, offered
by the Rev. J. A. Sligh, were adopted:
whereas, The cotton crop of the Southern
States is a most important one to the world,
a ni lis, under most favorab+e and embarrass
ing conditions and circurnst-nces, enabled
the Southtrn planter to keep soul and body
together and the wolf from the door, leaving
hirn, after mainy bi ter experiences and years
of toil, stili comparatively poor and diepend
ent, yet in a better condition financialiv than
even his more highly favored brother planter
of the rich and fertile West.
And, whereas. it seems to be only a ques
tion of time as to how long he can even main
tain the present state or affairs in his pur
suit unde: existing conditions, viz: low and
depressed prices brought about byIspecula
tion and g,.mbling in futures, and astringency
in the money market, and a want of conti
dence therein produced by a deficiency of
circulating medium in actual circulation,
thus cncouraging the hoarding of money and
giving to it unutural power, and enabling
those who hold and control it an easy way of
becoming richer and richer out of the hard
earnings of the unfortunate producers of
And, whereas, The cotton planter is not in
a financial position to successfully continue
and wrestle with the evils on account of rais
ing cotton to the neglect of home supplies,
being forced, year after year, to put his cotton
on the market at low, and often unremunera
tive prices, rendering himself in such a
course helpless in controlling or even r aving
anything whatever to do in regulating the
market prices of that which he himself pro
And, whereas, Over-production of the crop
and laziness and want of economy and the
lack of an intelli-ent understanding of his
business are madel>y some the excuses for all
the evils from which he sutfers.
Therefore, be it resolve<l by the Newberry
County Farmers' Alliances, That thus being
blessed by the Ge. of rature, who has cast
our lots within the most wonderful and
magnificent country, girted about as it is by
such natural conditions as to render It im
possible for others to compete with us in the
growing of this most important and valuable
crop that it is our opinion, alter many years
of trial and experience, tht the cotton grower
of the South has been and is still pursuing a
most ruinous and suicidal policy to himself,
viz: the neglect of the raising of the cereals
and stock needed by him, and devoting of
nearly all his time, his energies, his land, his
all to this one crop, and thus placing himself
at the mercy of the merchant, stock raiser,
rood producer, money lender and speculators
Resolved, That this being a matter of the
greatest and most vital importance to the
cotton raisers of the South. that in our opin
ion steps should be taken at an early day as
practicable by counties and States for the
calling and holding of conveations by the
different cotton growing States, in which this
matter, with questions growing out of it and
connected with it, should be thoroughly and
carefully considered, and that if necessary
these State conventions should provide or ar
range for the calling and holding of a South
ern cong-ess or convention to consider the
same, whose action should be final.
Resolved, That in our opinion not only
members of the Farmers' Alliance shall be
delegates to these conventions, but that
farmers who have no Alliance connections,
being in full sympathy with. and directly in
terested in the movement, should be invited
to attend and allowed full representation.
Resolved, That we fully recognize and un
.b tand that it is now rather too late for

of the present crop. but upon the. one ana

"Grip!" Don't talk about grip. I
was a little of the sickest man with the
grip you ever did see last week, and I
am calm and serene yet. I had more
grip to the square inch than any other
mortal except my larger half. I had
the grip in my head, my eyes, my ears,
my nose, my mouth, my ba'k,.my
chest, my arms, my handa, my legs.
my feet-all over, from the crown of
my cranium to the soles of my pedes
tals. The grip was so awful strong
that it came near crushing all my ten
der little bones. Oh, horrible taste of
the grip! Reader, did you ever taste
nasty measles? If so, you have had a
foretaste of ]a grippe. The only palli

It seems that the State's Newberry
correspondent was about correct on the
school district "agitation question."
It did truly "agitate," but it seems
that the agitation was confined to a se
lect few. However, as a result of the
agitation, a paper stating the fact, and
asking the School Commissioners to
lay off a school district four miles
square with the town of Prosperity as
the centre; was circulated for signa
tures. Now I would*do nothing to re
tard the advancement of any educa
tional plans or theories, for I have
always been on the line of educational'
advancement, but a school district at
this place and at this time strikes me
as a very unfortunate position for the
town alone. If it dealt with the town
alone, I would not have a word to say
in opposition to the scheme, but would
rather buzzah for the young creature.
