A PLAN PROPOSED.
A prominent merchant and banker
of this county has suggested a plan
that will probably be of benefit to the
farmers of the South. It is wor'h
thinking about, and will probably be
brought to the attention of the State
Alliance at its meeting at Spartauburg
He proposes that the cotton farmers
of the South appoint a day some time
about the first of August, and that
every one of them on that day
go in their fields and plow up every
fourth row of cotton. This scheme
will reduce the production one-fourth.
That will be about two million and
over bales of cotton. In the figures
published in The Herald and News
last week the surplus cotton esti
mated on hand the first of September
next is about two million bales. This
plan is practicable, if taken hold of by
the farmers throngh the alliance, for
they are well organized, and it could
be done in one day throughout the cot
ton growing States in the South. Its
effect on the speculators in Wall Street,
that much abused place, would be
greater than any legislation. They
have already based their calculations
on the present acreage. If in one day
one-fourth of that was cut off it takes
no argument and not much stretch of
the imagination to guess the result.
Their basis of calculation would be
gone, cotton would then be reduced to
the law of supply and demand, and
it will beat reducing the acreage. The
price would be - increased and there
4 ld, all things considered, be nc
.jss to the farmer. To be effective,
...4' lowever, it would have to be done in
concert and in one day, just as the
railroads throughout the country were
all changed to the standard gauge in
one day. What do our farmers think
of the scheme?
The fifth of August will be a big time
at Liitle Mountain. There is to be no
politics in the meeting, and every body
A PUBLIC DEBATE.
3. Wi. Stokes, President of the
State Alliance, has challenged Senator
M. C. Butler to a joint and public de
bate of the Sub-treasury at Prosperity
on next Wednesday, July 29, and
Senator Bu:.; has accepted the chal
lenge and Wiii meet President Stokes.
There should be a large attendance
of farmers, both members of the Alli
ance and those who are not members.
Let every body go and wit h the deter
mination to hear this question dis
cussed. Let both sides and both
speakers be given a respectful and
attentive hearing. If the sub-treasury
scheme is a good thing and will be ,e
and then let the law be passed. If it
is not a good thing, and would not inure
to the good of the people, why the
people ought to know, and turn theji
attention to something else. Both sides
ought to be heard. The people ough1
to want to hear the scheme discussec
intelligently. The opportunity will be
given at Prosperity next Wednesday
A subject of the magnitude of the
plan proposed by the sub-treasury
should have the freest and fullest dis
cussion and it should be in such spiril
to arrive at the truth.
There pressing need in South Caroli
na at this time for a statesman. A mar
who has the ability, the manhood, the
itriotismn, the unselfish devotion tc
the State, and the honesty of purpose
to throw himself into breath and poini
out the right and lead the people. We
are satisfied that the majority want t<
do right, and will do the right if they
can see it. They feel that there is
something radically wrong, but just
what has not yet been clearly defined.
In their eagerness to right things, s
large portion of our people unfortu
nately have been led to extremes by s
lot of demagogues who have taken ad
vantage of the general unrest, and they
are beginning to see it. Now for s
In a Democratic government it is the
right of a majority of the people to rule.
A good definition of Democracy is the
rule of the people or the government 01
the people. This is true. But this
majority rule sho'uld be a majority 01
all the peopla and not the majority of t
part of the people. Then, too, the mi
nority has rights which should be
exspected. The majority should not
override these rights either.
The joint public discussion of the
sub-treasury scheme at Prosperity nex1
Wednesday will attract one of the
largest assembled in Newberry County
in quite a while. Persons all along the
the road would be glad to go, and il
the railroads would run excursion
trains there would be a mass meeting in
The notice that an Alliance in Lau
rens county has passed resolutions
similar to the resolutions passed by the
Liberty Hall Alliance, and which the
Newberry county alliaL.ce asked to be
rescinded as opposed to the "right o1
the majority to rule." It will be in
order now for the Laurens County Alli
ance to ask that these resolutions be
rescinded as opposed to the "right ol
the majority to rule."
The Alliance procession is moving
through Georgia and inculcating the
third party idea. Congressman Wat

DEATH OF DR. 0. B. MAYE9, S.
One of Newberry's best citizens has
passed away. Dr. 0. B. Mayer, Sr.,
died at his iome in Newbery on Thurs
day afternoon, July 16th, at half-past
two o'clock, after an illness of nine
days. Though his deap-p s not un
expected, it, was a shock to the commu
nity in which he had spent an honor
able and useful life of nearly fifty years.
Dr. Orlando Benedict Mayer was
born near Pomaria, or. February 24,
1818, and spent the days of his boyhood
at his birth.place, to which he so often
refers in his writings with filial devo
As he grew into manhood's estate he
attended school at Lexington, and sub
sequently entered South Carolina Col
lege, where he graduated in 1837. He
then began the study of medicine and
received the degree of M. D. from the
Charleston Medical College. He prac
ticed his profession for a year or two in
Dutch Fork, and then resolved to at
tend some of the best European Uni
On the 25th of April, 1844, he left his
home at Pomaria and went to Charles
ton, where he sailed for Liverpool. He
spent three years in Europe, dividing
his pursuit of learning between the
Universities of Edinburg, Paris and
Heidelberg. He returned to Pomaria
in April, 1847, and after practicing his
profession there for two years, he re
moved to Newberry, where he has
spent his useful life.
Dr. Mayer was thrice married. In
1839 he married Miss Mary Davis, of
Fairfield, who at the time was living
in Mississippi. She did not live a year
after her niarriage. In 1851 he married
Miss Carrie DeWalt, of Newberry, who
died in 1861, leaving one son and four
daughters to a father's care. Later
he married Mrs. Lou Kinard, who sur
Dr. Mayer attained an eminent place
in his profession, and was as well distin
guished as a writer. He contributed
largely to the periodical press in early
life, which he kept up almost within a
week of his death. His la,t work of
this character was the revisal of the
Dutch Fork sketches for The Herald
and News. and on the day before he
was taken with the disease,' which
ended his life, he finished these
He retired from the aetive practice of
his profession several years ago. He
performed many difficult surgical
operations during his practice, being
often called to distant counties.
Dr. Mayer did not seek the applause
of men, or he could have obtained a
worldwide distinction in his profession.
Neither di,i he seek wealth. Nothing
delighted him more in his later years
than his literary pursuits. He was
pure-hearted, honest, overflowing with
generosity and kindness.
Dr. Maye~r was a thorough English
schelar, and spoke and wrote the Ger
man languaige. He was quite familiar
with'*Fren~h, Latin and Greek. He
devoted his attention.alao music and
fine arts. He a translated many
Gran nmns into English and ar
-rnged appropriate music for them.
His best work in fiction was "The
Voice, the Hand and the Silhouette"
and "The hMusic Girl of the Rue de La
Harpe." These two stories appeared
in Russell's Magazine, published in
Charleston in 185>7. In the first of
these he distinctly predicted the inven
tion of the telephone.
Dr. Mayer had been professor of
Physiology and Hygiene in Newberry
College since 1877, and also before its
removal to WValhalla in 1868.
Dr. $1aye r was a consistent member
of the Luth.eran church. He was astu
dent of the Bible, which he read with
devoutness and in which he believed
with a strong faith The grandeur of
his character is most manifest in his
religious life. No man of our acquaint
ance possessed a more abiding faith in
the promises of the gospel of Christ.
With the faith of a little child, his con
victions were strong and he relied fully
on the doctrine of the resurrection and
the happiness of the life to come, which
was his solace and comfort in his last
Dr. Maye r leaves four children, Dr.
. B. Mayer, Jr.; Mrs. Martin, of Lau
rens; Mrs. Connor, of Cokesbury; and
Mrs. J. T. :Mayes, of Newberry. One
of his daughtess, Miss Alice Mayer,
died in December 1834.
His nobleness of character and hir
many virtues truly entitle him to the
high name of Christian gentleman.
A Tribute' from a Class-Mate of '37.
To the Editor of the Newberry Her
ad and News: I was much shocked
to-day at the announcement of the
death of my old friend and class-mate,
Dr. 0. B. Mayer, in the Charleston
News and Courier. Our correspond
ence had been but recently renewed.
I saw in a stray copy of one of your
papers a re-publication of one his ear
lier contributions to the history of the
ancient "Lutch Fork," and wrote to
himi promnply, congratluating him on
his retaining so much of his youthful
spirit in composition, and requesting
copies of any more he might yet pub
lish. To this he replied in his usual
whole-hearted sincerity, and the papers
came regularly. He wrote of how
much pleasure it gave him to see my
familiai' hand-writing once more, and
recalled many of our youthful experi
ences with the warmth and fervor or
"Auld lang syne." He mentioned that
heket anuse.ript list of our class of
J1 in the South Carolina College, and
whenever he knew of the death of any
member, he would run his pencil
through the names and that very few
were left unscathed. That he found
more than one dot of his pencil oppo
site my name, as if hesitating whether
to draw the line or not. But it had es
caed so far.
urs was the first class enrolled
under the re-organization with the
Hon. Rl. W. Barnwell at the head of
the college. We were graduated, some
forty-two in number, and, from my
cout, the survivors now can be count
ed on the fingers of one hand. Sitting
alphabetically in our class-rooms, three
time- a day, ~and only sep)arated by our
mutual friend, Jno. L. Manning, the
three of us became very intimate. In
Mayer's case, we could see, through
some peculiarities, that sterling charac
ter andl spotless integrity which distin
guised him through his long life, and
which boys are not slow in finding out
and appreciating among their associ
I was thrown but little with him in
after life, but from what I saw for my
self and learned from others whenever
the opportunity to inquire was afforded
me, I knew that "the boy was father
Iof the man," and that in his quiet and
unobtrusive way, he was serving his
day and generation as a citizen anid
neighbor good~n and useaful, an d that he
had attained tht highest title known
among men-that of tlic "Clritian
gentleman." He was always proud of
his State-the South Carolina of our
day--and loved his native Newberry
with filial devotion. The publications
he had revised and revived but recent
ly were intended to interest and in
struct posterity. Even now based on
traditions and reminiscences running
back almost to colonial times they have
the charm of antiquity. But
"In far oirsunners we ne'er shall see"
how much more will they be prized by
a remote posterity.
He wrote me that he intended to col
lect them in permanent book form, and
I real:y hope his fellow-citizens of such
long standing will see to it that his
purpose is carried out. For more than
fifty years-half a century of profes
sional life-he has walked the streets of
his much-loved town, a living epistle
known and read of by all men, and
now that his voice is silent, his genial
nature should yet survive in his writ
ings, permanently preserved.

After the meeting of the stockholders
there was held a meeting of the newly
elected board of directors, at which the
following officers were elected : Pres

secretary and treasurer, T. H. Gibbes.
President Childs said to a representa
tive of the State that the road having
been leased to the South Carolina Rail
way, there was no annual report of the
earnings. The annual reports shows,
however, that the road has been able
to pay the interest on the first mort
gage bonds by the rental from the South
Carolina Railway. The business of the
road has been exceedingly gratifying
and very satisfactory to the lessee.
The condition of the road has been
found, after an inspection by Receiver
Chamberlain, to be physically far be
