THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1S91.
It is probable that between this and
the first of January that England will
send to this country $50,000,0) of her
gold for our breadstuffs, and the bank
of France is trying to keep P100,00) of
her gold with which to purchase
American wheat. It looks now that
the American farmer will soon be nhas
ter of the situation.
Since the first of January last about
$7.5000,000 of American gold has been
taken to Europe to help out the strin
gency over there. We are told now
that it is beginning to return, and
already about $1.500,CK of it is back.
A good deal more than this will come
in exchange for our wheat and bread
stuffs, and it is needed here, and we
hope it all will come back soon.

taineer says that the administration

We publish this week the letter of
Senator Butler to Dr. J. W. Stokes,
and the reply of Dr. Stokes. The head
lines are the same as appeared in the

construction it placed upon his debate,
and the reply of Dr. Stokes does not
give satisfactory explanation of the
construction 1:laced upon the language
of Senator Butler. But the letters of

The grain erops in the United States
are said to be the best and largest this
year ever -produced. The Manufac
turers' Record in a recent issue esti
mates them and the figures may be of
interest. The Record says:
The yields will probably be about
5S0,000),I)0 bushels of wheat, 2.(#0,000,
000 bushels'of corn, bet ween 600,000,000
and 700,000,000 bushels of oats and
over 100,000,000 bushels of other grains,
making an aggregate of about 3,300,
000,000 bushels, or about 1,000,000.000
bushels more than in 1890. This in
crease of 1,000 0000,000 bushels is equal
to 1,000,000 car-loads of 60,000) pounds
,each. Nearly all other crops promise
the same abundant yield, rice, sugar,
tobacco, fruits, grasses, etc., all adding
immensely to the profits of farmers.
Cotton alone of all the big crops will
fall short of 1890, but this will be an
advantage, as the yield of last year wvas
too large for the demand.
And the big grai'n crop this year will
not put the prices down, for the crops
in Europe are very short and our grain
will be in great demand. The ap
parent deficit in Europe to be met
by importation is estimated to be 13.5,
The estimated requirements of rye
and wvheat for the world's consumption
are 3,000,000,000) bushels and the total
estimated crop of these two grains for
1891 will aggregate but about :t,000,000,
000 bushels which shows a deficit of
about %00,000,0010 bushels. It must be
remembered that rye constitutes a
large per cent of the bread-making
grains. The American farmer ought
and no doubt will receive a good prc
for his wheat this season, and as there is
a large crop and he should be happy.
Of the yield of cotton is not so large
the price ought to be better, as is al
ready indicated and it figures to look
as if there was a better time ahead. WVe

The Amount of MIoney in Circulation.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: I have before me the monthly
official statement ot the Treasury De
partment as to the condition of the
currency to September 1, 1891. As this
will be of interest to many of your
readers, and may have some effect in
correcting the errors and falsehoods so
persistently circulated on this subject,
I take the~liberty of furnishing a few
of the material points of t his statement.
It shows, in the iirst place, that the
entire currency of the country-gold,
silver and paper-amnounts to $2,144,
131,342, as follows:
Gold Coin.....---......... $52,227,5E;
Standard Silver Dollars. 4(17,815,268

Of this sum there is held in the Treas
ury for reasons I need n'e stop to ex
plain, $638,000,209. T1 e remainder is
in actual circulation at;.3ng the people,

Total.......... ..... 1,506,11,133
Counting our population at 63,975,000,
as does the Treasury Department in a
circular just received, we have a per
capita circulation of $23.54, as any one
can easily verify for himself by doing a
little fig~uring. But notwithstanding
these plain and palpable facts, some of
our Alliance friends will persist. as we
understand they have been doing im
our county (luring the past week, in
teaching our over-credulous farmers
the same old falsehoods told them by
the National Economist and Cotten
This statement of the Treasury De
partent also shows that the net in
rease in circulation during the mouth
of August-A ugust 1st to September
1st-was $6,1ti8,321, that is from $1,500,
S2 eon Ausust 1st, to $l,506,131,]8:3 on
September 1st. Note, too, that of this
inrase $1,S93,935 was in the National
)k Notes. Yet we will continue to
b told thatt these Banks. these "ene
me of the people," are wickedly and
maiciouly contracting the currency.
It sow, too, that the increase in cir
ultion during the year-Septenmber
1st l1.i', to September 1st, 1891
amounted to $70,a08,19l, or over $1.1')
nr cpita increase in a single year. .I
i'nav~ here note that .Senator Butler's
mis~take at Prosperity, in estimating
he irculation at only $1'; per cap)ita,
seems to have arisen fronm his con fusing
the amount in actual circulation with
the entire amount (stocki coined or
issued. Deducting the amount held
in the Treasury from this instead of
from the entire sum, would about ac
ount for his figures of $16. and I do
not see how he could have arrived at
the otherwise; for, of course he did
not invent them a la Mlacune.
Taking, in connection with this last
oflicial statemenit, another recent state
nen of the Treasury Department giv
ing the circulation for different years
sinee 1860, it is seen that the circulation
per capita is now larger, at least was
the 1st of last January, than at any
previous period in our history. In 186tI,
at the out break of the war, it wvas only
$13.55 per capita. In 1s865, at t he close
of the war, wvhen we had so much in
fation of paper money, and goldl and
slver were both driven out of circula
tion, we had a per capita circulation of
only $20.57. Twenty years later, in
15, aftcr we had resumed specie pay
ments, and our finances had got back
to a normal and healthy condition,
and our credit was second only to that
was $2.12. n le 1IA of January,
891. our actual cilculation was about
$1 ,52'J,0 ,00, and the am-out per
capita $24.10, that is, as officially state,
the highest per capitacirculation in the
history of the count ry. Sine thei t he
circulation has been somewhat reduced
by the shipment to Europe of over
I Iit)00(,0 gold during the spring and
early summer. But there :re already
;ndications of the return of this gold in
exchange for our grain, and as we have
seen above, the circulation is again in
creasing. Seeing, then, that our per
capita circulation is larger than ever
before in our history, and greater than
that of any other leading nation, with
perhaps a single exception, as I propose
to show at an early day, we are forced,
it seems to me, to one of three conclu
sions: Either our circulation has always
been too small, and we have had our
marvelous prosperity as a nation and
as a people for over a hundred years
with too little currency. Or we need
more currency per capita now than
heretofore, and if this be the case, we
would like for some of our Alliance
wiseacres to explain the reason why.
Or it is a mistake to suppose that a
scarcity of currency is at all the cause
of our woes. Which of these three
conclusions is the most plausible?
P. S.-Since writing the foregoing I
have received from the Tre:asury De
partment the promised circular, en
titled, "The Volume of Money in Circu
lation," in which is closely set forth,
1st. The entire amount of money in
the United States. 2nd. The amount
held in the Treasury. 3d. The amount
in actual circulation, as well as the per
capita circulation on July 1st of every
year from 1860 up to the present time.
I would suggest that you publish the
abbreviated table containing this in
formation, and that every person inter
eeted in knowing the truth on the sub
ject cut it out and preserve it. For
this purpose I enclose you a copy.

WA SIINGTON, September 4.-T be
Secretary of the Treasury has prepared
a pamphlet in regard to the volume of
money in circulation, as telegraphed to
The News and Courier to day. It shows
that the amount in circulation July 1,
1%5, was $714,702,993. Of this amount
$689,702,995 was paper money. During
the calendar year 1865 the average

required S157 in currency to purchase
as much of any commodity as could be
purchased xith $100 in gold. The
$714,702.995 then in circulation was,
therefor,e, equivalent as an average for

A Newberry Young Man Insttantly killed
[Special to News and Courier.]
AuUSTA, Ga. September 5.-Mr.
Joe Henry Lafayette, a young man
only 21 years old, of Newvberry, S. C2.,
met a horrible death here to-day. He
was visiting his father, Mr. Joe Lafa

Shortly after 7 o'clock this morning
Mr. Lafayette was sitting in front of
Mr. Patrick O'Callahan's store, on
upper Greene street, talking to Sam
West, when the Port Royal and \X est
er Carolina Railroad outgoing morn
ing passenger train shot around the
curve and entered G;reeinestreet, bound
for Spartanburg. When Lafayet te spied
the train coming he told WVest he was
going to get aboard and get a morningr
paper from the butcher boy.
Within a foot of the track wvas an
embankten tof gravel four feet high.
Joe got on top of the embankmenit and
when the train came along lie threw
out both hands and leaped, with the
intention ofjuimpin)g on the train be

The poor fellow made a misstep and
fell between the cars unniioticed. His
coat got caught in the brake rod and
he was dragged sixty feet before he fell
upon the track. The wheels of the first
class car' and the sleeper passed over
his body. Lafayette wa horribly
mu tilated. H e was ly ing on h is stomach
with his breast turned up and portions
of his body were scattered along the
track. His head, which was lying on
the rails, was mashed into a jelly. Both
his arms were niangled. end his hands
were cut off at the wrsts. The trunk
of his body vwas cut wide open. It was
a lreadful~sight, one to excite horror,

:;.; P. M.-The much advertised de
bate between United States Senator
M. C. Butler, of South Carolina, and
Congressman Ton Watson is hi pro
gress here to-day. The crowd, which
so far seemis good-natured, is not as
large as expectedl, numbering about
1,500 all told.
The meeting was held in a deIightful
grove about one ltndreicd and fifty
yards west. of the depot. The meeting
was opened at 1).:V) a. mn. in the old
fashioned camp meeting way of wind

ProIf Nash, of the Bates'urg Graded
School, acted as master of ceremonies
and called upon the Rev. McKain to
invoke the divine b1cssing upon the
meeting. The chairman after reading
a letter from Dr. J. William Stokes,
explaining his absence by reason of
previous engagrent in the Eastern
part of the State, furnished the infor
formation that only Messrs. Butler and
Watson would be permitted to speak
upon the matter.
Senator Bitler this morning called
on Mr. Watson and tendered him the
choice as to how the debate should pro
ceed. Under this arrangement, Mr.
Watson chose to open and close.
Being introduced by Senator Butler,
Congressmen Watson said that If
neither were candidates for otlice he
(tie speaker) would not be here, as that
would be a matter of home route for the
people of South Carolina to settle
among themselves, but this being an
occasion for the discussion ofan easure
touching the interest of all the people,
he felt no delicacy in approaching the
task that was before himr. Proceeding
to the subject of the debate, ie stated
that the sub-treasury, like all reforms,
must. expect to meet opposition. There
was no reoson why both ie and utler
could not discuss the principle or plan
w'thout the bill.
Senator Butler objects to the bill he
was bound to substitute or if he object
to the principle, then he would be in
the position which could he occupied
by no statesman. If any means of re
lief were orTered, he could take either
horn of the dilemma. Mr. Watson
-then assailed the national banking sys
tem, and quoting from the News and
Courier the report of Senator Butler's
speech at Prosperity, taunted the Sena
tor with holding that seven per cent.
was the only decent rate of interest on
money, and that if reports were correct
the he had said that the man that bor
rows money at 2 per cent. never meant
to pay it back.
He proceeded to give his argunent
on the sub-treasury as alegal and pra,
ticable remedy. His argument wa
1st, that it was needed ; that it had
been in operation in the Amsterdam
and Hamburg bank ; the land loan
feature was ini operation in Sweden and
Norway, governing particularly the
Enskellen Bank of Sweden, none of
which sub-treasury banks had sus
pended payment, although other banks
of England and Germany had failed.
He also mentioned Frederick the
Great and the Silesian banks as on~the
principle of a sub-treasury bank. HeI
denied that thie national banking sys
tem was a war measure; said tha, was
the use of greenbacks that backed suc
cess, but plutocrats wanted to g'-t rid
of greenbacks and then established
national banks so that the prosperity
of the peopile would be int other hands.
His miain ar-gumnent was dir-ected to
establish the claim of the land loan
shenme, and he assigned that tI e s rnme
principle would operate in case of nionl
perisha ble homtelproducts. Be depict ed

He said int opening that he had been]

bill at Prosperity. He had been berated
and derided for exercising the right of
any citizen of expressing freely his
opinion anid that in discussing thre hill
he was committing some crime. This
bill had been decided upon as embody
ing the wisdom and thought of econo
mists and lobbyists at Washington, an d
yet he should not discuss it wit hout thre
consent of the bosses. He had never
expected thre day to come in South
Carolina when he would not be allowed
to express his opinion otn any measure
without first consulting the bosses. He

Senator Butler said that lie branded
as a liar any man who said that he
said iti his speech at Prosperity that
forty thousand farmiers in Somuth Caro
linia were thieves atid scoundrels. Any
man who saidl that he said that those
who wanted to borrow at :2 per cent
did not intend to pay hack, is guilty of
base falsehood and misrepresentationi.
Senator Butler saidl he had lived too
long to pander to whims~ of demagogues
charlatans, and would niot surrender
the expression of his opinion for any
ofice within the gift of the people. lie
believed the peop)le would do him jus
tice to say that when his services were
deatnded in peatce or war he had al
ways given them freely without stop
ping to count the cost. They lhad
honored him, perhaps, nmore thar hre
deserved, but he never initendled to
sacrifice his judgmenrt for ('tice.
His friends had rebuiked hinm for not
introducing a bill that was impossible.

Lecturer Pope iade speeches and ha
things their own way. The peopl
turned ou. well at most of the rweet
ings and gave careful and respectfu
attention. No one took issue with anyv
thing they said except perhaps at it
Tabor. The Herald and News wa
not represented at any of the meetings
but from what we have heard ther
was nothing said or -different in th
speeches from what has been writtei
and spoken oil the -ide of the questioi
time and again.
The meetings were all held a
churches and at one place-St. Paul's
owing to the rain, the speaking wa
held in the church.
The campaign opened at it. Tabo
in No. 4. At this meeting Hon. Jni
W. Scott, as president of the sub-alli
ance. presided and introduced th
speakers. This Alliance furni.hed :
free barbecue and picnic, and we pre
sume the same was the ease at th
other appointtmients. District Lecture
Keitt made the first speech. He attri
buted the depressed condition of th
farmers to legislation and nationa
banks. These caused the low price
of cotton. The question of supply an(
demand had nothing to do with th,
price. He advocated the sub-treas
ury plan and with that would coin
the panacea of all our ills.
After dinner County Lecturer Pop
and State Lecturer Jeffries spoke or
the same line, attributing the scarcit
of money, the low price of cotton an(
the "hard tinies" generally to nationa
banks and legislation and advocatin,
as the remedy the demands of the A li
At the clos- of these speeches Presi
dent Scott imade a few remarks. H
congratulated the people of the coi
munity for the success that had at
tended the meeting, and said that h
indorsed a good d,al that the speaker
had said, but he thought the speeche
would have been much more appro
priate for a political meeting than fo
an Alliance meeting.. He did not be
lieve the ills of the farmers could b
cured by legislation altogether. H
thought they were trying to start a
the wrong end. The start ought to b
n111ule at home by the farmer himsel
in improved methods of farming. Tin
leeturers had failed to tell us any thin;
that would benefit us as farmers. Hi
thought the Alliance had overleape(
itself and the purpose for which it wa!
organized. Allincemen are quarrelin;
an( falling out all over the country
and simply because of the injection o
polit ies into the Alliance.
Mr. Keitt wanted to know wher
Mr. Scott got his information.
Mr. Scott replied that he got it fron
Mr. Keitt thereupon inquired if h
took the Cotton Plant and Economist
Whereupon Mr. Scott replied tha
he did not.
Then Mr. Keitt wanted to knov
what papers Mr. Scott read.
Mr. S,ott then proceeded to enume
rate the list of papers he receive(
amongst which were the Newberr,
Mr. Keitt thcn proceeded to an
nounce that it would not do to listen t<
an;ything the Newberry papers said.
Mr. Scott said he did not proposi
that any newspaper shonld do hi
thinking or form his opinions, and tol
Mr. Keitt that he had frequently seer
articles from him in one of the New
hlerry papers andl wanted to know o
what was said in them could be re
lied on. He also told Mr. Keitt tha
he uuderstood him to intimate that h<
must form his opinion from the Cot
ton Plant and that he was satisfied tha
the Cotton Plant had grossly misrep
resented Senator Butler in the Pros
perity debate and asserted that in hi
opionion the Alliance had departe<
from the objects for which it had beei
organized and had gone head over
heels into politics, and that so man.
politicians were jumlpinlg on the alli
anee wagon that he feared it would be
unable to hold up under the strain.
Mfr. Scott was the oak. of the fou:
spea kers w ho recei vedl any applause.

Since writing the above we have seet
a gentleman who was present at tin

that the crowd was small, and no dini
