WEESDY, FEB .11I' 24, 1892.
ANOTHER BIG LAWSUIT.
The present administration certainly
has had its iall share of lawsuits, and last
week she got on another that promises to
be greater than the others. The particu
lars are published pretty fully else
Agricultural Hall has been a historic
building and promises now to be even
The revenue scrip offered in payment
has been declared invalid and the Gov
ernor did right in not accepting At.
We admit, however, that we do not see
just how he is going to justify his course
before the law in refusing possession to
the building after the terms of the sale
had been complied with and the first pay
ment made. The scrip could have been
refused, and when the next payment be
came due the mortgage could have been
foreclosed. But we presume the Gov.
ernor was acting on the proposition that
possession was nine points out of ten in
law, and when he realized that he had a
lawsuit he would hold possession and act
on the defensive.
It is a very unfortunate state of affairs.
Clemson College needs the money, and,
as things now stand, it may be a long
time before she gets it.
Attorney Lyles should have gotten in
possession of Agricultural Hall before he
made his tender of revenue scrip. Bat
then possibly he knows what his object
is better than we do. If he does not he
is groping in the dark.
If his object in buying the building was
to test the scrip in the Courts and throw
the State in a lawsuit, it is well for all
parties that the thing was stopped where
it was. Surely the State has enough law
suits on its hands already, and nobody
should be permitted, if possible to pre
vent it, to add another useless and un
profitable one to the list.
A FAIR PROPOSITION.
The Democrats of South Carolina have
been terribly divided for the past two
years. The n ino sense in this state of
affairs lasting any longer. There is no
need for any class or any faction to ques
tion the motives of the other. If we ever
get together there must be concession
on each side. Very foolishly we have
been divided over one man. The 'ate,
Columbia, has been the leader of the op
position to Tillman. In 3londay's issue
it makes a proposition that seems to us to
be fair and just, and if what is claimed
by Gov. Tillman and his followers is true,
they should make no objection to its adop
tion. If they have the approval of a ma
jority of the Democrats of this State they
should make no objection to submitting
their case to them. There are extreme
men on both sides and there should be
and must.be concessions, if we ever get
The following is the proposition of the
"Let each faction nominate its ticket.
Then let there be a direct primary for
State offcers, as well as all others. Let
each faction have equal representation on
the boards of managers of the primary
election. Let all Democrats be allowed
to vote according to the rules in force in
this State for fourteen years, taking only
the oath exacted during that time-that
the voter is a Democrat, and has not voted
before in such election. Let each faction
pledge itself that-these conditions faith
fully observed, a fair election held and
honest returns made-it will abide the re
suit, and make no opposition at the gen
The Herald and News is opposed to the
holding of conventions of factions of the
party, but if this agreement can be reach
ed and will result in a union of the fac
tions, we say let it be held. Governor
Tillman and the present State ticket will,
of course, stand for re-election. If this
agreement can be reached, as to a settle
ment, let those who oppose him put up
their men, and then let the people choose.
That seems to be fair. If not, why?
We publish elsewhere a call issued
for a convention to be held in Colun -j
bia in March to nominate a State
ticket to oppose the re-election of Gov-'
ernor Tilioan. The call was well
written and states the truth forcibly
and plainly, but The Herald and
News believes the holding of a March
Convention to be a mistake. The
signers of the call are good and true
men and have only the best interests
of their State and party at heart, but a
March Convention will only help to
widen the breach and make the cam
paign more bitter.
The convention will do no good that
we can see. It will be hard to get up
an organization in the different coun
ties. The call pledges to abide the re
sult of the nominations and to work 1
within the Democratic party.
The State announced editorially last,
Friday that the straightout executive
comnmittee had been called to meet in
Columbia last night. We have never
seen the call and as the State does not
fully define the object of the meeting 2
we do not know its purpose.
We had hoped there would he no
straighout. demiocrats, Tillmnan demn
oerats or anyv other democrats in
the canvas this year except pure t
and simple democrats atl working
ing together earnestly and industrious
ly to secure good government in South<
Carolina. That thbese divisions should ~
be forgotten and that the democrats of '
South Carolina would diligently search r
for the best men to be found for public t
ofnce was our sincere hope. Evidently
that hope is not to realized.
The Marlboro bank case has been
decided and the decision sustains the i
bank. Now what will Mr. Ellerbe J
say ? He should at once apologize to t
Auditor Cromner of Newberry. This
should now put a stop to all the lit iga- s
tion over the increased assessment of s
other banks, railroads and other copo- j
rate property, and let the taxes be paidC
without further litigation and save
The decision is written by Judget

AS TO STATE PRIMARY.
It makes a great difference in politica
whose ox is gored. In the beginning of
the campaign, two years ago, Candidate
Tillman and the, March Convention all
demanded a direct and straight primary
for State officers. When things got in the
swing and Candidate Tillman felt sure ol
success, he and his opposed a State prim
ary for that year, but wanted it in 1892,
and every year thereafter. Not a primary
for delegates, but a straight, direct vote.
This delegate business was altogether an
It is well occasionally to refresh om
minds as to what we pledged ourselves tc
do. In this fast age we are liable to forget
unless our memories are ref:eshed.
At the two county conventions held at
Newberry in 1S90-June and July-ef
forts were made to pass resolutions in
structing our delegates to vote for a State
primary in the State convention. In both
cases they failed. Those who opposed
them, however, were warm in their advo
cacy of a State primary in 1892.
Among a long series of resolutions of
fered by Dr. Pope, preceded by several
whereases, the following is No. 1, and it
was adopted by a large vote:
Resolved, 1. That we favor such an
alteration of the Constitution of the Demo
cratic party as will give to the Democratic
people of this State a State primary in
1892, and at each election thereafter, at
which only white Demccrats shall vote;
and the candidates receiving a majority of
the vote at said election shall be the nom
inees of the Democratic party for the
Now, if this resolution is not a demand
for a primary direct in 1892, we would
like to know what it is.
The Hon. J. A. Sligh is a fair and just
man and in the course of the discussion
in these conventions on this question he is
reported as saying:
"As to the Primary: We are committed
to it in the platform of the March Con
ve,ition. I have advocated it since 1876. I
believe it is just and I am an advocate of
it to-day. But circumstances alter cases.
Do alter them materially. The March
Convention adopted a platform, one plank
of which demanded a primary. The E:
ecutive Committee met and had that plat
form before it. Why didn't it give us a
primary? Answer that. Instead the com
mittee ordered a convention to meet in
September. I am told that only one mem
ber voted for primary at that meeting.
[Delegate Pope: "They deny that."]
Mr. Sligh resuming: "Earle began to
agitate the question on the stump and
demanded a primary when he saw his
chances were gone. We want harmony
in the party now, and a primary would be
dangerous now. The campaign has gone
on and everything points to the conven
tion. He thought he was conservative. If
we had a primary it would be the hottest
time we ever had. AL[kinds of election
eering would be resorted to. In the in
terest of Democratic supremacy and
harmony and peace, he was opposed to
the p-imary now. We are not to blame
for it. We want oue in 1892, but cannot
yield to-day. When we meet in August
and the "Antis" find the case is hopeless,
they will yield and all-will be peace. It
is in the interest of Democracy rot to
have a primary now., He said he did not
speak as a partizan but a lover of his
At arother time he said "he was opposed
to the primary now but wanted it in 1892."
The March Convention platform de
mands such a primary as we have been
offered. We would be glad to hear from
Mr. Sligh on the question, now, 1S92.
Does he favor a primary direct for Gov
ernor, or does he favor a primary for dele
gates. We would like to have an expres
sion from Mr. Sligh on this question.
Would it not conduce to harmony and
anion to have a direct primary?
We ask an expression from Mr. Sligh
n all sincerity, because we believe he is

That Converted Tillmanite.
MR. EDITOR: Permit me space in your
:olumns to put before your readers a few
'acts which may be of interest especially
:o the Tillmianites, concerning that won
lerful conversion that has recently.taken
alace in our countv. an account of which
ippeared in "The State" of the 18th inst.,
mud which I hope you have reproduced
'or the benefit of the public.
The article to which I shall refer was
-ublished over the signature of 3. H.
Chappell, and headed "A Converited Till
It shall be our aim to show how easy it

:elebrated ex-Tillmanite-as we think we

'ore, and seeks further conversion among
;he antis, by going back a few years.
Once upon a time this same ex-Till

election he "spread himself " for the suc
:essful candidate-he elected his man,
>ut his man failed to elect him chief. This

nourner's bench. One year later the same
nan was a candidate for re-election, and
:his great convert "spread himself"
tgainst him-but the candidate "got there

enows but that his last conversion meaus
that he is again a candidate for chief. If
he is he will be re-re-converted.
In 18S9o there appeared a card in the
1ewspapers which read as follows:
John Herry Chappell is hereby an
iounced as a candidate for County Audi
.or-subject to the primary election.
This Tillmanite candidate canvassed
he whole county and made some of the
trongest reform speeches made during
he campaign. We wonder if he was so
>linded as to make him disregard the truth
n said campaign, and if he had been
1ected would this great conve-sion have
aken place? But when the result of said
-lection was published we saw how many
illmanite friends he had---here is the
esult! J. H. Chappell, for thet whole of
fewberry County, 161 votes, which goes
o show that Newberry County knows
'rotten drift-wood" from true and nmanly

nd he would be saved. Note the conver

It must he remembered that this is the
ame 3. H. Chappell that found all those
'ad men's and minor's names oni the
'arolina Club roll. We suppose the club
ell remembers it. We wonder if he will

We think we have plain!ly shown his
easons for being so easily cor verted, for
aose that hre gives amount to nothinlg.
One word more to Mr. Chappell as con

nough others of the same stamp elected

THE FIR.ST GUN.
A State Convention Called for March 24 to
'Nominate aFull State Ticket Against
To the Democra' - of South Carol!na:
We ask you to consider without pre-judica
what we say to you, and to let your jud-ment
be governed by Ra intelligent regard for your
own interests and directed by your love and
respect for the State and her people.
We are not trying to stir your pa ions by
general accusations which we cannot prove.
or to exci.e vain hopes by extravagant prom
ises impossible to fulfill. We do not wish to
undo any good that has been accomplished or
to reverse any policy which the majority of
our fellow-Democrats favor.
We ask you to join us in an honest, united.
determined effort to remove the dangers con
fronting our people, the evils undor which
they suffer. We must restore peace and good
feeling among ourselves. hat we may stand
and work together and give that mutual help
and cordial co-operatioi necessa:-y for the
well-being of any community. We c-an do
nothing while we are divided into hostile t.ac
tions and neighbors are separatedby political
distrust and discord.
We su)mit that the course of the pres-nt
State administration tends inevit-.%bly to con
tinned iritation, division and da iger. In the
campaign of 18M0 the public wa deceived with
promises of reforms which have not been
kept. All of those who expressed their dis
trust of these promises were then v;tlent;v
denounced. Even such of these as, dcspite Iiikv
bitterness with which they were assailed, ac
cepted and supported the will of the majority
of their fellow-Democrats, have been treaied
as enemies. and the present indications are
that this proscripion iN to be cont inued and
e::tended. Recent public declaraLion by those
high in authority assure us that those who
were from the first friends and followers of
the head of our State administration. butwho
went with him only so xar as their consciences
would allow, and then retisted or opposed h:s
purposes, are likew ise to be put under ban.
Representatives of the people have been
slandered, reproached and dei ided as -drift
wood," because they could not in all things
think and act with the Goverror, and dared
to vote according to their judgments. We are
openly informed that strong efforts will be
made to secure at the coaming election the
choice of a Legislature more obedient to the
Governor!s demands, more pl able in yielding
to his will than the last.
A circuit judge has bee.i rebuked in an ofti
cial message because his decision on the
bench did not accord with the wishes and
opinions of the executive. The Legislature
elects thejudiciary. Contol of the one means
the control of both and the c n:ralization of
all the po.. ersof making,expounding and exe
cuting the laws (powers given he consti.
tu.ion for the salety of the people to tihe :eep
ing of three distinct branches) into the hands
of one man.
The present nianagement of our party, ap
pa:ently in full sympathy with the purposes
-nd demands of the Governor, and with his
help. has incorporated into the rules ol'the
party new devices for perpetua! ing the power
now held and making it more difficult for the
majority of the Democratic voters to with
stand the power of the machine controlled by
The tendency of all these acts and methods
is toward further and deeper divisions and
continued strife among us. The signs of the
times warn us that unless there is a change
we may have to choose between slavish sub.
nission to a dangerous and degrading despot
ism or a bitter, desperate and ruinous strugele
To avoid these dangers, to restore peace a nd
harmony to our party and people, we call on
all De?nocrats who wish to secure a conserv
atice, safe, efficient State government, repre
seating a solid Democracy at home and con
manding the good-will and couti lence of the
world at large, to give us the active help of
their inf'uence and votes.
We pledge ourselves and those who think
and act with us to abide faithfully the decision
of the State Democratic convention, to make
this fight for good government, the freedom
of legistion, the independence of t hej jdi ciary
and the libey ty of the people within the party
lines; but to make it earnestly, courageously
and persistently in eveiy townsitip of every
county of the State. We call on all Democrats
who are willing to act wil.h us on the pledges
and for the purposes above announced, to as'
semble in mass meet ing at their respective
court houses on such days as they niay see fit.
and elect delegates to a convention'o be held
at Columbia the fourth Thursday in March,
192; which convention shall be author'zed
to name a State ticket .or the Democratic
voters a'nd the State Democralic convetition
called to nominate a State ticket for the Dem
ocratic party. We ask that each county elect
to the convention hereby called as macy dele
gates as it is entitled by tire rules of the parLy
to send to State conventions.
We are moving for Lhe p)eace, strength andl
prosperity of the State we lave, and for the
happiness, freedom and safety of the people
we honor. We invite every Democrat to help
in this work for South Car-olina and Sot'th

THE SORGHU.-t QUESTI ON.
Good Feed for Cattle and a Paying Crop.
To the Editor The Herald and News:
hile politics seems to be uppermost '.in
ie minds of some of our people, allow
ie space to make a few suggestions
earing upon farm interests.
The low price of cotton will force our
Lrmers to adopt other methods to enable
s to make buckle and tongue meet.
he farmer who raises his farm supplies
prosperons, and is not so much affected
y the low price of cotton.
Among the many crops that can be
ccessfully grown for man and beast, I
aggest sorghum as one of great impor
mece. When practicable, syroip from the
ane will prove a saving; but as a forage
rop I know of nothing better for all pur
oses. In getting information as to its
any uses I applied to my friend, Mr. J.
.Myers, who had considerable experi
ace, and observed its use in Kentucky,
ho gives me the following information.
peakir g of the sorghnm, he says:
"This crop was planted and used in
entucky during my boyhood days, and I
is still used to put all kinds of stock in 1
ne condition for mairket. The farmers I
1re, where food of all kinds is plentiful]
d cheap, regarded sorghum, and still re-(
ard it as having more fattening proper. t
es, and cheaper than any crop that could t
Splanted. It is free from all danger of
ijury to stock after the seeds are ma
tred. Only a few acres are required for
large number of stock. The amber
me is highly sp)oken of for forage. MulesJ
ill do good work i short day-s on veryv
ttle grain when sorghum is fed to them,
id when not at work it will fatten faster.
ian any other food that I know of. When
d to hogs and milk cows it gives satis- I
.ctory results, in fact all kinds of stock t
id poultry thrive on it at sniall cost.t
s young calves cannot eat the stalks, I
tere is danger in allowing them to eatr
>o many of the seed.
"Since I have made my home in South t
arolina, and heard the farmers speak of
e difficulties in raising food for their -
imals, I have thonght it strange that
ecy did not adopt sorghum, especially as
can be grown after other crops have
~en planted, a'id be used before the sea
ni ends, lessening the cost of other crops ,
id carry the stock ovec i~a good health
"If the sorghumi is cut for wi,iter use
id stored in an airy~ barnx, it can be used
winter wvitht equally good results.''
From persoiial experience I kaow t11atr
e stalks cut down when the seed con
ence to ripen and fed to hogs, adds
eatly to the growth and the putting on
flesh. Tiien with an acre of sweet po
toes, p:indars or chufas to every' ten hread
porkers, andl a little corn after the pa
toes, mecat can be raised at a nominal
Then let our farn:ers raise in abundance
rage for their stock, and with full corn
ibs and plenty' of meat the foundation
11 be laid for prosperity and happiness. t
