NEWBERRY, S. C.
"HURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1891.
THAT GREENWOOD SPEECH.
We publish elsewhere, with pleasure,
the explanation of the Cotton Plant of
Dr. Stokes' Greenwood speech, head
line and all, just as it appeared in the
last issue of the Cotton Plant. We re
gret that we did not see the explana
tion as published in the Cotton Plant
of August 12, but about tbat time the
editor was absent, and if we ever saw it
we do not recall it.
The explanation, as we see it, leaves
the argumeu Lust as we reported it, so
for as its merits go. We give below
what we reported Dr. Stokes as saying
at Greenwood. It is taken from our
issue of July 16. We ask the reader
to compare it with what the Cotton
Plant says he said and see if the two
are not the same:
"The objection urged that this scheme
may cause loss to the government if
there is a decline in price was con
sidered. President Stokes said there
was no possibility of loss under any
circumstances. This plan would elimi
nate the speculator and reduce it to the
law of supply and demand.
"Suppose a farmer deposits in the
warehouse $100 worth of cotton and
draws $80 and at the end of the year
when pay day comes this cotton is
only worth $40, and the farmer fails to
redeem his cotton. You say at once
the government has lost $40. It has
done no such thing. What is to hinder
the government from bu., ing that cot
ton in and holding it until the price
advances, and that is what it will do.
But suppose the government wants to
sell out and only realizes $40. The
go.vernmeit has lost nothing in that
case, because the other $40 was in cir
culation and it stands upon the same
basis as your s.Avr cerufleate issued
since last July."
Then we asked Dr. Stokes how about
the other $20 that the ffrrner could
have received for the cotte. when he
deposited it in the warehouse and
If Dr. Stokes will examine the files
of the Cotton Plant he will find, in an
issue after the publication of our report
of his Greenwood speech, that it staLed
that our report was a fair and correct
report,-bft that we charged him with
mAking an argument that he did not
believe himself. We did not intend to
make any charges against him in our
report, but we did not see how he
could make it out that the government
would lose nothing if it received only
$40 for $80 advanced on cotton. Now be
says it is on a par with greenbacks.
Well, now, will the Cotton Plant tell
us how this 346,000,000 of greenbacks
got in circulation? Did it get in circu
lation in the same way as the $40 in
the illustration used by Dr. Stokes?
Are not the~treasury notes issued by
the government redeemable in coin?
We do not mean the god and silver
certificates. Is not the government re
quired to keep one hundred million
dollars in gold to redeem these 346,000,
000 'f greenbacks?.
These 346,000,000 of greenbacks are
simply the notes of the government,
issued in payment of its debts incurred
by the war, which pass as legal tender,
and pass as money instead of taxing
the people to raise the money and were
given to the people that the govern
- metit owed and in payment of its ex
penses. True, the $80) would be a note
of the government, but what business
sense would there be in giving a note
for $80 for which the government only
received $40. It would not be ]ong
before such notes would be useless.
-To say that the outstanding $40 was
no loss to the government because it
was on the same basis as greenbacks is
no argument. To carry out the same
line of argument, there would be just
as much reason to say that the govern
ment could give to every man who had
$100 worth of cotton $80 and let him
keep his cotton too, because it would
have as good basis behind it as the
greenbacks, andi then the man who
had the $100 worth of cotton would not
lose the other $20 that he might have
received for his cotton, in the case sup
posed, when he placed. it in the ware
house. Then. too, there would be $80
in circuhation instead of $40.
But then we admit that we do
not und - wd this great scheme of
finauic id have been ind.uced to say
this miuch in justification of what has
been formerly said. We have only
been seeking light all the time.
The Atlanta Journal publishes an
interview with Gov. Campbell, Demo
cratic candidate for Governor in Ohio,
on the situation in that State. Hc
says the all absorbing issue in the pres
ent campaign is the tariff. The Re
'publican candidate, MIaj. MfcKinley,
author of the McKinley bill, is trying
to draw attention to silver, but 3Mr.
Campbell is holding him down to the
When asked what part the sub
treasury plan wouid have on the cam
paign, Gov. Campbell replied to the
"Well, sir, you are the first man I
have ever heard mention the subtreas
ury plan in Ohio. The people here
know nothing whatever about it. I will
give you a fine present if you will find
one man in Ohio who will mention
the subtreasury plan as an issue in the
campi~aign. We are making the fight
on the taritT, and on this transcendant
issue we will win the battle."
That must be a great place to spend
a while in. No subtreasury plan dis
cussed or talked about! Just think
The Abbeville Press and Banner of
last week had about 29 columns of ad
vertisements. MIost of them were from
the merchants of Abbevilie and Green
wood. The business men of Abbeville
appreciate the value of advertising,
and patronize and support their home
paper. Some of the business men of
Newberry never advertise at all. It is
very queer. If the papers in Newberry
could get half 29 columns the hearts of
the editors would be made glad and
the merchants would reap the profits.
The Reformers in the cities are on
the popular wave. They have won in
Charleston and are making thbings live

That is all right and proper, and W(

we would like to see also our own State
Fair at Columbia a howling success.
We have no idea these gentlemeE
meant in any way to slight our State
Fair or to discourage our iarmers from
attending or sending exi.ibits tberetc
by calling special attention to Augusta
in the circular letter. At the same time,
however, if they desired to have the re
sources of the State brought to the at
tention of the public and properly ad
vertised, they might also have directed
the attention of the farmers thereto, if it
was thought necessary to give specia]
stress to Augusta.
Possibly it was thought that out
farm..ers would think enough of theii
own fair to take their own exhibitE
there without having their attention
specially called to it.
At any rate every one should feel a
personal interest in our State Fair, and
we hope that exhibits will be large and
varied as they should, and that the at
tendance will be good.
We feel that Col. Holloway and
those associated with him will spare nc
pains to make the Fair a great suc

"H." a welcome to its columns.-Cot
Oh! no, Mr. Cotton Plant. "H." is
a good friend of the editor of this papez

any such manner as this.
By the way, did the Cotton Plant
notice that "H." had another commu

Commodore Duncan Nathaniel In
graham died in Charleston on Friday,
16th instant. He was born in 1802,
and at the age of 10 years was a mid
shipmite. He fought through the war
of 1812 as a midshipman. He served
in the Mexican war as a commander,
and at the outbreak of the late war he
resigned. In March, 1861, he entered
tbe Confederate navy, and was assigned
to Pensacola and then to Charleston,
where he distinguished himself by
breaking up~ the blockade. He was
bold and fearless as an officer. One of
the most notable events in the navy
was t's:rescue and release of Koszta, a
naturalized American citizen, from the
Austrian ship of war Huzzar in June,
1853, in th~e Mediterranean. He had
lived very quietly at his birthplace,
Charleston, since 1865.
The News and Courier copies an
editorial from the Omaha Bee on "How
to build up Omaha" and substitutes
Charleston for Omaha. The gist of
the whole thing is told in one sentence,
and it is this: "The way to build up
Omaha, is to give Omaha people your
patronage." It needs no further com
ment. There is a big truth in this
simple sentence. It is a sermon and
lecture all in one. The people of New
berry can make the application for
themselves. "The way to build up
Omaha, is to give Omaha people your
patronage." Remember that.
At a recent meeting of the York
County Alliance two very important
and practical questions were consid
ered. One was a reduction in the aver
age of cotton and the other the im
provement of the public roads. These
are things which concern the members
of the alliance. More practical work
would be of great benefit to the Alli

That Greenwood Speech.
The Herald and News (Newberry)
referring to our illustration at Green
wood uses this language in its issue of
"If an explanation of Dr. Stokes'
Greenwood speech has ever been made
we have never seen it."
Again in another editorial iii the
same issue, it says:
"Then we asked him if he really be
lieved that the government would lose
nothing because the money was still in
circulation, and we have asked him
again, and as yet have received no
These are remarkable statements in
deed. We corrected The Herald and
News in the first issue of The Cotton
Plant after its question was asked. But
togo no further bacK than August I-5th
we said under the caption "Caims to
be Fair" the following:
"The trouble lies in his (The Her
ald's) statement of it and not in what
Dr. Stokes said. He does not state all
that Dr. Stokes said. The statement
made at Greenwood was, that in the
case supposed the government had not
lost the $40 outstanding. It was in
circulation. The worst that could be
said about it was that it would have no
basis behind it; but that was no worse
than must be said about 346 million of
Greenbacks which have- nothing but
the government behind them. He
further admitted that this might not
be a desirable result, among those who
believe in money that is based alone on
some valuable entity, but the question
of loss to the government was settled
by the argument in the negative-un
less the 346 million Greenbacks repre
sent a loss to the government. If this
is not a true statement will The Herald
and News kindly point out wherein it
fails of truth or accuracy? We assure
him before hand that we will not
charge him with either insincerity or
trifling, however inconclusive his argu
ment may be."
Again in our issue of September 12th
under the caption "Some Ignorance"
occurs the following:
"His (Darlington Herald) statement
in regard to storing $100 worth ot cot
ton, drawing $80 and afterward the
cotton being sold for $60-The trouble
with this is not in what Dr. Stokes
said, but in what heis reported to have
He said the $20 was still in circula
tion; and the worst that could be said
for it was that it had no basis behind
it; but thas was no worse than must be
said for 346 million greenbacks, which,
have no basis either. If our cotempor
ary holds that there is actual or possi
ble loss to the government in the circu
lation of the greenbacks, then is his fear
of loss in the case of sub-treasury notes
well founded. To hold such a view
would be sheer ignorance of political
economy as well as history-but the
ignorance is not on Dr, Stoke's side.
Does The Herald and News read The
Cotton Plant when it answers a ques
tion of The Herald and News?
Did it read this? Some allusions,
even in its issue of Oct. 1st, imply that
it did; but we prefer to think that it
did Dot in order to escape the uncharit
able conclusion that it has deliberately
misconstrued and suppressed our plain
statements in reply to its question.

Lecturer Kcitt at Andergon.
The People's Advocate gives the fol
lowing report of Lecturer Keitt's ad
dress before the Anderson County A lli
ance at its recent meeting:
District Lecturer Jos. L. Keitt being
present was accorded the floor and pro
ceeded to address the Alliance, more
especially on the question of finance.
He said that all civilized countries had
some system of linance and that ours
was embodied in the national banking
system, which had so completely placed
the control of the currency of the
country in the hands of a certain class
that the amount of the wealth of the
country held by the agricultural and
laboring classes had steadily decreased
for the last three decades and that
during the last decade it had decreased
from 36 per cent. in 1880 to 23-per cent.
in 181o. That agreat deal of this wealth
was of an invisible iature and the re
sult was that those who produced the
wealth and owned only 23 per cent. of
it paid about 80 per cent of the taxes
t hat were collected. That of the $1,000,
000,000 spent by the recent Congress
the farmers and laborers paid about
$SOO,000.000. This was an inequality
and injustice that we were seeking re
lief from, and instead of the present
vicious and unrighteous system we had
proposed another and a different sys
tem by which the government would
take the control of the currency from
the bankers and furnish it directly to
the people based upon the products of
the soil. That this was true Jefferson
ian Democracy as exemplified in the
teachings of Jefferson, Calhoun and
Jackson, under whose leadership the
party had 9iways fought the idea of
national banks as unconstitutiona! and
dangerous to liberty, and that Mr.
Calhoun had constantly held that the
government should not extend its
credit to the banks but to the people
directly without an intermediary, and
that twis was the underlying princ'ple
of the sub-treasury plan. His remarks
were continued at some length along
this line and were listened to attentive
ly and approvingly by the delegates.
TO RAISE THE PRICE OF COTTON.
Important Management Inauguratcd by
the Greenville Alliance.
[Special to News and Courier.]
GREENVILLE, Oct. 19.-The Green
ville County Farmers' Alliance met in
special session to-day for the purpose of
taking some action on the vexed ques
tion with them, of the buying and sell
ing of cotton. They passed the follow
ing resolution, wvhich is intended to
a far-reaching effect to raise the price
"Whereas, cotton is our cash product
and producers are forced to take for it
prices below the cost of production, not
only the farmers, but the merchants
who furnished them supplies on time
must sustain the loss. Trhe profits on
cotton are divided bet ween the specu
lators and manufacturers:
"WYe, the Greenville Farmers' Alli
ance, do ad vise our farmers to refuse
to sell :heir cotton at thbe present prices,
and to at once ware house so much cot
ton as will satisfy their creditors, and
borrow froni the banks or individuals
on ware house receipts and hold their
cotton for better prices.
"That the action of our meeting be
published throughout the Cotton
States, and we ask the farmers to at
once, through State and County Alli
ances, act in accordiance therewith.
"That Sub-Alliances are hereby re
quested to call meeiugs at once to act
on these resolutions."
The Alliance of thbis county proposes
to accomplish the purpose of the reso
lution by concentrating the cotton
brought to this market in the Alliance
warehouse for the purpose of having it
graded into lots, "'so that each grade
can be sold at its true market value."
The warehouse will store cotton fif
teen days free of charge to buyer and
seller a;ike, enabling the seller to hold
his cotton for better prices and the
buyer to get large lots for shipment.
After the fifteen days' free storage is
out the cost of storage and insurance
will not exceed 2.5 cents for the first
month, and 20 cents for subsequent
months. A committee of the Alliance
--It is now generally conceded that
the present crop is far short of that of
last year and of much finer quality,
yet the prices are below the cost of p)ro
duction. It therefore must be appar
ent to all that there is everything to
gain and nothinlg to lose by holding.
Some of the Greenville banks have
agreed to advance liberally on ware
A resolution was also passed asking
every true Alliance man not to sell his
cotton until he takes it to the ware
house. The Alliance pr~oposes to hire
a gradler of cotton or grade it them
selves by "types" from New York.
Trhe cotton buyers here are defied, and
if the plan of the Alliance is carried out
they must buy Alliance cotton at the
wrehouse and have it weighed by
Alliance wveighers. It is not likely tbat
they will consen't to be instructed by
the'Alliance where to weigh the cotton
they buy without sonie lively kicking.

Isaac Kinard, Colored, Hanged for the
Murder of hi, Landlord, Mr. Leinuel
[Special to News and Courier.]
LAURENS, ititober 1.-The awful
scene in the cor.yard of the jail as
Isaac Kinard was ushered into eternity
is only a prelude to that to be enacted
when the -leven negroes pay the
penalty for te murder of Nanee.
At 11 o'clock Kinard was seen in his
cell and appeared to be very cool, and
cared little to talk. He said he slept
well last night and was ready for the
work of to-day. As they took himn
from his cell he made only one request,
and that was that he be allowed to tell
his fellow-prisoners good-bye. This was
granted and with a broad grin he shook
their hands and they cried "Go, meet
us in glory, Ike," "Be sure," and then
as he proceeded down the stairs tile
prisoners, who had been singing hynns
to him all the morning, began "Praise
God from whom all blessings flow."
At II o'clock he was placed on the
scaflold, and had no re<quest to make
but that a pair of socks and a testa
ment he had in his pocket be given to
the colored preacher. The block then
dropped, and after hanging twenty-fi 'e
minutes Kinard was pronounced dead
by Drs. Dial, Aiken and Anderson.
Ike Kinard was hanged for the mur
der of his landlord, Lemuel G. Oxuer,
which occurred on June 13 last. He
was sentenced on the 4th of October to
be hanged to-day. His attorneys en
deavored to get a respite, but the Gov
ernor refused. Yesterday he expressed
himself to Deputy Winters 4s being
very sorry that he killed Mr. Oxner;
that be was the best man he had ever
worked for, and he wished Oxner had
killed him instead of him killing Ox
ner. His appearance, however, showed
no signs of emotion.
A RESPITE FOR THE ELEVEN.
A respite has been given to the eleven
negroes sentenced to be hanged next
Friday until the Supreme Court can
act on the motion for a new trial.
