began on the8th and broke on the 14th,

great satisfaction by the preacher and
congregation. The preaching was of
the highest type. It was done by the
pastor, who was ably assisted by the
station preacher, Brother Daniel, and
by the P1resbyterian preacher, Brother
McClure. I don't think I ever saw a
more attentive audience. There were
from two to three hundred in attend
ance every day. The behavior was the
best we ever saw. We had thirty-one
to join the church during the meeting,
and two others having joined at a pre

many gathered around the chancel at

SENATOR KE!Tr'S SPEEC[f.
Senator Joseph L. Keitt made a
speech in favor of the sub-treasury
plan at Mr. S. H. Fellers' barbecue, on
the 11th instant. The following is A
synopsis of his speech:
The capitalists have falsely educated
the people to believe that silver and
Cold are the only true monies. Such iQ
not the case. Greenbacks is a better
money than gold or silver. We need
more greenbacks and we will become a
prosperous people. When we had $5C
per capita we realized 30 cents a pound
for cott-n. Now we have only 05 pei
capita and we get only six or seven
cents a pound for cotton.
Question-Mr. Keitt, don't supply
and demand have something to do witb
Answer-Contraction of the curren
cy has something to do with it.
Question-Will you kindly explair
why we realized thirty cents a pound
for cotton when we had a four million
bale crop, and seven cents when w(
have an eight million bale crop?
Answer-I will admit that supply
and demand have something to dc
with it, but you must remember that,
as the currency contracted, cotton went
down, and such has been the case fou
the p)ast twenty-f-ive years. Suppose
we raised 30,000 bales of cotton in Y ew
berry County and we had $10,000 tc
pay for the 30,000 bales with, you see
we could get only 30 cents per bale.
Surely any sensible man can un.der'
stand that comparison. Scppose eight
millon bales be raised, or suppose the
demand be eight million and 10 cents
the price of cotton. The factories bu3
enough cotton at 10 cents to run on un
til January. Then the speculator stepi
in. The banka at the North say to th(
banks South, you must pay your note
Banks South say to merchants, yot
must pay your note. The merchanth
say to the farmers bring in your cottor
and pay up. Then the price of cottot
is reduced to 8 cents a pound by the
speculator. If we had warehouses fol
the 'a:mers, and the farmers coukc
make a loan from the government al
t wo per cent. we could abolish the spec
ulator and sell directly to the factorie:
at ten cents a pound.
THE NATIONAL BANKS.
Senator Butler at Prosperity evade<
the questions I asked him about tb<
National Banks. He (Senator Butler
did not like the word "lien," but pre
ferrd the word "tax." I say the gov
einent does loan the national bank
money at one per cent., and the bank
charge the people from 15 to 20 pe
cent. for money.
If the banks have a right to a circulk
tion of money based on their bonds
the farmers have a right to circulatio1
based on non-perishable products. .1
the merchants had been pat.riotic, the
would have advocated the sub-treasur
plan long ago aud would have take
the farmer by the band and asked hi!
to help them work out the plan. Bt
the merchant is under the banker, an
is afraid to do anything to displear
him. Merchants, the time has con
when you must decide where you wi
stand! Will you go with the people<
will you go with the moneyed powe
and help to crush out the farmers?
GOING FOR SENATOR U]UTLER.
-Senator Butler was dealing unfair1
with the people of Prosperity when 1
discussed the dead bill presented t
.Mr. Vance in Congress, and he kne
-it. (Put it down. I want it to go
1 the papers.) Senator Butler is again
us. He (Senator Butler) has fought tl
- emands of the Alliance and is oppost
- to the farmers borrowing money at tv
- per cent. from the government. He
- in favor of the National Banks.
- DECLAE!S JIMSELF A TihilRD PAR']
.Question-What about the Thi
-Answer-As an Alliancenman?
Question-No, as a citizen.
-Answer-I anm a free man. I ha'
Sthe right to do as I please, and as:
- Allianeman I will stand by the d
-mands of the Alliance. If the D)en
cratic party will not concede the
demands, 1 will go where we can t
- them satisfied. [A pplause.]
The only applause Senator Keitt
eived was when he declared his inte
0tion to leave the Democratic party
Cthe dlefmands of the Alliance were tr
conceded to within the party.

IThe Counly Board of Examiners are
.making arrangements for holding a
e Teachers' Institute at Newberry fram
7 August 31st to September 5th.
.The Board is anxious to make the
.Institute a success and therefore ear
nestly request that all teachers in the
County, and others interested in the
common schools, he p,reseot.
- We have hp.d an Institute each year
e during the past two years, and believe
that some good has been done, that
some teachers, at least, are better pre
pared for their work than before. But
we vant all to make progress we want
e better methods and better training in
all of our se! ools. One of the best
means to accomplish this is the County
Institute. All teachers can attend it.
~They cannot afford to lose the oppor
ttunity to learn soinething which makes
them better fitted for their work.
The Institute will be in session five
The grade of the teacher's certificate
t- hereafter will depend to some extent
upon the number of Institutes he has
eattended. ARTHUR KIBLER,

Has it ever occurred to you that, in

In the case of ant insuranace ompatny (as
with an individual or with any other business
organization), strength is determined.by the
amount of assets OVER AND -'.BOVE ALL LIA

ance Society of the United States on Dec.
3st, 15, amounted to Twenty-three and Three
Quarte Millions (a sum many millions in
ees the surplus held by any other life
company in the world), and as the Equitable's
ratio of assets to liabilities is 125 per cent.,
ie., $125 to meet each $100 of indebtedness (a
percentage greatly in excess of that of atny
other leading company), the question ol
