MASS MEETING Ar PRIOSPERITY.
A Siua!l Tournament-Speeche,4 and Ad
vice to the Farmers-No Concluaion
We went to town on last Saturday after
noon to attend the citizens' mass meeting
which had been called to meet there on
last Saturday, 20th inst. On account of
the inclemencv of tile weather by the
threatening of rain, a very few of the
farmers turned out at the mass meeting.
About 5o citizens were present, some of
whom took part in the discussion. On
account of it being Saturday, and an in
convenient day for business men and
clerks to get off, (it was hard for some of
them to make a sacrifice, for fear they
would lose the "almighty dollar" in at
tending the citizens' meeting,) they did
not turn out in full force.
The meeting was called to order at
about half-past 2 o'clock by Prof. E. 0.
Counts, who read the call for a mass
meeting as follows:
Resolved, That a mass meeting be held
at Prosperity on Saturday, February 20th,
at 2 p. i., to take action looking to a re
duction in the acreage of cotton, and that
the public generally be invited to attend
said meeting and take part in the delib
In accordance with the above resolu
tion we cordially invite every person in
terested in an increased price for cotton
to attend said meeting. We extend a
special invitation to the business men of
Prosperity. JoHN B. FELLERS, Pres.
B. B. ScHUMPERT, Sec.
After Prof. Counts had read the resolu
tion he called upon Mr. J. B. Fellers,
President of the Prosperity Alliance; he
responded and said that the object of the
meeting was for the express purpose of
devising plans for decreasing the acreage
and increasing the price of cotton.
Maj. G. G. DeWalt was the next speak
er. He addressed the assembly at some
length, showing that the great surplus of
our money was in the banks at the north
and northwest. He also explained the
value of the silver dollar when it first
came into exchange, that it then con
tained 480 grains of silver, while at pres
ent it contains only 3734' grains. He
said that the only chance for the farmer
was for him to raise is necessary supplies
at home, and not depend upon some one
else for his home consumption, and that
the only chance was to raise more sup
plies and plant less cotton and at once
become self-stistaining. He argued that
by trying to raise more and more cotton
that the farmers would become poorer
and poorer, and that speculators and
manufacturers would become rich.
The next speaker was F. V. Capers,
the editor of the "farmers' friend," as
some call it, the Press and Reporter. Mr.
Capers endorsed what Maj. DeWalt had
already said. He claimed that the only
chance was to decrease the acreage 01
cotton and increase the acreage of grain
and food supplies and home consump
The next and last speaker was Hon.
W. D. Hardy, he began by saying the
Alliance was holding conventions all over
the Southern States to see if there was
not some way to decrease the average
area of cotton. After Mr. Hardy's ad
dress the me-ting adjourned "sine die"
without coming to any conclusion.

Doctor Pope's Visit North.
Dr. Sampson Pope. of Newberry, is
in the city on his way to his home from
a trip North. Stories have been printed
that Doctor Pope's visit to Washington
was to arrange, with Senator Irby, to
secure money to rn the Hill campaign
in this State. Doctor Pope said last
night that his visit to Washington and
New York was for busiuess and plea
sure and that politics was only inciden
tal. He went to New York on Sunday
with Senator Irby, but only saw and
talked with one Tammany man, Gen
eral Pryor, who was one of Dr. Pope's
officers in the war.
Dr. Pope says Senator Irby had an
appointment in New York Tuesday
with Congressman Brawley. The ap
pointment was to transact business and
polities was not mentioned between
them.-Greenville News, 20th.
A CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS.
Dr. S-imupsomu Pope has stated tt a
Washington newspaper reporter that
he is a candidate for Congress from tbe
Third District. He says: "I stand
squarely on the Ocala platform, and
will enter the lists as a friend of the
Alliance and its demands. The people
ask for finRancial reform and they are
going to have it." Dr. Pope is strong
enough to make a successful contest for
a seat in Congress and able enough to
fill it with credit to himself and his
people. We take pleasure in publish
ing his announcement and have con
fidence in his success.-Register.
WILL. "NOT ENTER A SCRUB RACE."
Dr. Sampson Pope, of Newberry, was
in the city to-day. Ini referen.ce to the
alleged Nill-Tillmnan mission to New
York hie said that lhe knew nothing.
He wemr to the city of New York to pur
chase some medicines and machinery
for a nianufactory which he proposes to
establish. While in New York the nearest
approach to Tammany that he saw was
Gen. R. A. Prvor, now a judge upon
the bench, his personal friend, and he saw
him hardly five minutes. Neither Senator
Irby and Congressman Brawley, who were
together, had any Hill business in New
York. The first'he knew of any political
errand was what he saw in the newspa
Ipers. Dr. Pope said regarding his candi
dacy for Congress that lhe did not propose
to enter a scrub race against Col. John
stone, but that he would enter the fight if
the field were given to him. It would be
a pretty hard matter for one man to defeat
Johnstne, and if Col. Norris. Mr. Jos.
Keitt, son of Ellison Keitt, and the Rev.
. A. Sligh, who were spoken of as candi
dates, would give the field to hini he
would be glad to make the fight and
go to Congress.-Columibia cor. News and

Embarrassing the state.
Nearly all the railroads in the Stat
have refused to pay their taxes and all bi
the C., N. & L. that have paid, ha-. dot
so under protest. They propose to cart
the matter into the courts.
The Columbia correspondent of t1
News and Courier says:
"The position of the railroad corpor:
tions in declining to pay their taxes o
the basis of the assessment made by tb
railroad board of equalization will ve:
probably be a matter of serious inconvet
ience to most of the counties in the Stat:
and it may possibly make it necessary f(
the State to make 'a loan for the expens(
of the Government. The amount of rei
enue from all railroad property is $14.
263.56, and from present indications on]
a very small proportion of this will I
paid. According to the tax regulatioi
the fight will probably begin on the 101
of March, when the county treasure:
commence their crusade of tax execution
and the case will come to a head ari
the issue be brought squarely before ti
Courts. How the course of the railroat

"to see you stay on one side of the fence.

There is still a rage of mad-dog con
versation throughout this entire neigh
borhood. A dog belonging to Mr. John
F. Wheeler that has been passing the
road frequently has bitten two or three
pupils of ourschool quite recently. The
dog was not mad but it is very unsafe
to be bitten by a dog in these .ays. It
should be a violation of the law for any
person or persons to allow such dogs
to run at large. If everybody would
raise a hog in place of feedir g a dog
they would find their condition very
much improved. Y"t we hear the cry
of hard times.
