About twenty 'he counties have

Yesterday morning I had the pleas

The Columbia Register is now giving K
iti attention to the condition of the :L
condition of the country roads. This L
is a very importaRt matter. No ques- I
tion a better system of country roads 1
would be a great saving to the farmer.
This is a good subject for the alliance 6
to take up. -
We publish elsewhere how the rep- ,
resentation will stand in the next u
Legislature if the reapportionment is N
based upon the last United States cen- Y
sus. It will not affect the representa
tion from Newberry. Charleston will
lose five representatives. It is quite
probable that the last census will be
adopted by the Legislature.A
Hon. Horace Chilton, the new sena
tor in Congress from Texas, recently A
appointed by Gov. Hogg, has expressed bf
him'self very forcibly and eloquently on s
the sub-treasury scheme in a speech at cc
Tyler, . his home town. He possesses
what he calls in his speech "cornfieldg
comon sense." The Senator said:
Conenigthis scheme~ my own 01
Sduty is plain. The Constitution of my re
country is against it. Economy, busi- p)
ness judgment, good old cornfield com- st
mon seuse, the experience of the past, w
the hopes of the future, the unanimous a:
warnings of our great statemen, all ar
stand in its way. If all these barriers. re
should ever be broken down, if folly L
should ever rule the head and despera- U
*tion fold the ballot of his country, s<
and a trial should be given to that I,
_scheme, our farmers will find that be- in
yond the depths of their present hard- at
ship there is a still deeper depth in the at
misfortunes of the condition produced w
by the collapse of the sub-tr'easury- hi
"It comes now to perplex the coun- et
sels of the people, to divide the organ- de
ized and exultant forces which in a few
.~ars at most will bring the country S.
back to the measure and equity ei
of the plan of the fathers, where to
agricult.ure led all other interests in
profit, importance, and indepeadente. st,
"And it is said that the managers or su
this scheme will force the Djemocratic
party to lend to it the endorsement of yV
its great name. In other words, that is
they will capture the Democratic party 0r
and pervert it. This seemis to be the in
settled policy of the sub-Treasury H
leaders in T2exas. Let them try. The 0(
Democratic party in Texas has already
spoken. I believe it will speak again rc
in the samne steady tones of vigor and
resolution. Trhe best men in Texas, ar
the best farmners, the: best mechanics, tr
the best merchants, the best rep)resen- ut
tatives of every profession, make up the
Democratie party, an~d when its voice at
rises from the schoolhouses and village re
meetings in the campaign of 1892, it Isi
will have in~ it no tremor of uncertain- t
ty or retreat, but it wil' swell and con- m
solidate into a'deternmined negative as
grand and as broad as Texas herself." in

The first regular business 'was the ~
