There may be reform papers in this
Stte, and some of them may be Peo
ple's Party papers, but they don't
claim that standard. The Atlanta
sheet has put The Herald and News
down as a P. P. paper. We will say
to. our earnest enquirer that the "old
"plattercrat" must have come from
Wall street, or he is terribly off on the
"Reform" (with a big R) press of tais
State. It is said that the woods are
full of them, and like politics in Geor
ga, they are "running high and wild."
Some of them are so wild that they
have-never been tamed by the conser
vative tone cf The Herald and News,
and others are still afraid of its mail
list, Just how the P. P. P. of Atlanta
and-our ea;rnest inquirer have got The
Herld and News down as "Refawm"
portion of the newspaper press in
South Carolina we are at a loss to un
'derstand. But "a prophet is not with
out honor save in his own country,"
nd abroad our praises are sounded for
the.things we have never done and at
ome we ip ondemna.tion for the
S iingwe s;-yrrnd do.
Hiw then is The Herald and News
to tell our earnest 'friend absolutely
and trulye what is a genuine reform
newspaperif The Aerald and News is
a reform paper in Georgia and an ex
- treme portion of' the "pluttercrat"
pres in the Palmetto State? We give
Itup, and our friend must try the tone
and temper of other sample copies.
Perhaps the "old pluttercrat" is the
&ntleman who is going about subsi
dizing the anti-reform press, whom a
de s man declares he knows and
hidaions have had such an effect
that he has :aptured the "refawn"
prss before the. antis knew that boo.
*_die was'in the air. Maybe this is a
reason why "old pluttererat" says
there is'no reform paper in South Car
olina.. If such proves to be the case,
e a,vise our earnestinquirerto re

Monday's issue of the News and
Courier would prove, if we did not
know it from observation, that there
is life, active and energetic life in Char
Sleston. More than half of the twelve
pages are devoted to a carefully pre
~pared and accurate review of the busi
ness of the city for the year ending
August 31st, 1893. The total amount
.as over seventy-five million dollars

THE ROYALTY ON PROSPHATE.
It In Pledged to Ma ke Cocd the Stat
Bonds-Seventy-five Thousand Dollars
Must be Ratsed from the Royalty.
LSpecial to News and Courier.]
CoLUMBIA, S. C., September 9.-"I
won't do it." That's the way Governor
Tillman expresses himself, and usually
when he says such things he means it.
He means that he considers the State
pledged to raised $75,C) a year from
phosphate royalty towards a sinking
fund for the new issue of State banks,
and that he will not consent to any
arrangement by which such revenue
will not be raised.
It would not, he thinks, be keeping
faith with the bondholders. He would
rather let the fields lie idle, and if such
occurs there will be no violation of con
tract or any bad faith on the part of the
State. This morning, after stating
what I understood to be the position
of the phosphate men, Governor Till
man consent-d to give his views. He
said that he could not make any con
tract and that all that he could promise
to do would be to try and get the board
of phosphate* commissioners to pass a
resolution reducing the royalty to 50
cents per ton, pros ed the amount so
raised amount- i to $75,C0.
This would be subject, of course, to
the action of the . gislature and it was
his further idea that the royalty should
be made to operate on aliding scale.
If the price or rock became better the
royalty should be proportionately
raised "If all of theminers stop work
we cannot help it, and I suppose we
will have t6get some one else to mine
in the State property. I certainly do
not feel warranted in helping these peo
ple to such an extent as to make the
State break its faith with Its bond
SUFFICIENT ROYALTY OR NOTHING.
"Before I'll see the rock bring a
ruinous royalty I'll consent to let it lie
there, and before I'll consert to let it
derive less than $75,000 royIty r let
it lie there. The State will not then
have broken faith with anyone. I have
every disposition to help these people
in their trouble. The State is in a kind
of co-operation with them and it is to
their interest to help them.
THEY SHAN'T MINE ON TREIR OWN
"I have no desire to drive them out
of.business, but -Im afraid they think
'at we are so poor that we are com
pelled to let them mine at their own
,erms; but we have not got there.
My idea was to get an account of the
amount of damages sustained and then
by a reduction of royalty' let them get
that back. There is now about 40,000
tons of rock on hand, which would get
the benefit of any~reduction of royalty
if we make one."
One thing is certain,. Governor Till
man is going to stick to his idea that
the phosphate companies will have to
raise the $75,000, even if they have to
pay the present $103 royalty, that Is If
75,0C3 tons are mined. If50,000 tons are
mined the 75,000 have to be raised
according to his plan. The State can
make no agreement which would look
to a smaller revenue and still keep
The phc-phate men look at things
differently. They want something
Gefinite. They want a fifty cent roy
alty for a term of years. They do not
want any "sliding seale" in theirs.
They do not want to run the chances
of making up any deficiency by the
retirement of any company and the
end pay $1, when they expected to pay
WORK STo?PED AT COOSAW.
The Coonw people were so much dis
satisfied with their conference that
they have ordered work stopped. If
what the miners say is true, tney are
not tno anxious togo back into business,
and it will only be done :provided the
State shows a disposition to help them
out and to do so In no uncertain way.
The board will meetinBeaufort Turs
day evening. Friday will probably be
spent in visiting the phsphte works,
and that night final action will n.
doubt be taken.

A Low September Condition.
WAsm3NGTON. D. C., September 9.
r'he September cotton report of the de
partment of Agricultuie shows a de
aline from the August condition of'the
3rop of full 7 points, the average being
73.4 this month, as against 80.4 last
This is the lowest September condi
bion since 1881; which stood at 70.
The condition in September, 1892,
was 76.8. For the same month in the
year 1891 '.nd 1892 it was 82 7 and 85.8,
T be State averages are: VirgInia, 93;
lNorth Carolina, 76; South Carolina, 63;
*eorgia, 77; Florida, 86; Alabama, 78;
Niississippi, 78; Louisiana, 81; Texas,
53; Arkansas, 80; Tennessee, 67.
In addition to the unfavorable con
fitions, among which the drought has
been prominent, the correspondents of
the department ascribe the falling off
in the condition of the crp to the ray
iges of insects, enemies of the plant,
such as caterpillars and boll, army and
leaf worms. Dust, as a cause of dam
age, is also extensively noted.
The hurricane of August 27th caused
much damage to the crop In the States
of North Carolina, South Carolina and
Georgia, and in a less degree in the
State of Florida.
BABY RUTH'S SISTER.
The Most Important Visater Washington
Has Had in a Many Day-All the Coun
try Congratulates the President
WASMSGToN, D. C., September 9.
-Another girl baby was born to Presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland to-day. I'he
birth of a baby in the White House was
of course an event in which more than
usual interest wrc felt. In an incredi
bly short space of time the news was
knowa to Congress and was spread
through all the departments. The
closrst reticence was maint:ined at the
White House Ps to the event. The first
statement given out was that the event
took place at 2 p. m. Later it was per
mitted to be known that the event oc
curred exactly at noon. The President
was informed of the event by Dr. Bry
ant, but it-is said did not mention it to
-Private Secretary Thurber until 2 p. m.
In the meantime the news had become
known outside, the first public mention
being made of it in the War depart
The President absented himself from
his effice shortly before 12 o'clock and
remained anxious y awaiting a mes
sage. When informed by Dr. Bryant
and the professional nurse of Mrs.
Cleveland's safety he at once went to
his wife's chamber and two hours after
words quietly re-enterd his office and
authorized Mr. Thurber to confirm a
rumor which by this time was going all
over the city. The baby is a bright
eyed, healthly looking young lady.
She has not yet been weighed, but is
said to be of gc:>d size. This is the first
child born to a President in the White
House, thougi there have been other
births in the executive mansion.
AN ADDRESS TO THE ALLIANCE.
President Zvans Emphatically Opposes the
President Evans has issued the fol
lowing address to the Alliance of South
I have been requested by State Le
turer J. William Stokes to call an extra
session of the State Alliance to con
sider the propriety of petitioning the
Governor to call an extra session of
the Legislature to give such relief to
farmers as lies in its power, as well as
to petition Congress to issue $300,000,
000 of government notes to be distrib
uted throughout the South for the
purpose of moving the cotton crop.
Now, while I do not think it neces
sary to call the State Alliance to meet
in extra session, at the same time if
the requisite number of County Alli
ances make such a request I will cheer
fully do so.
I think It will be best for the County
Alliance to meet at once and take such
action on these subjects as their judg
If It is our interest to issue cotton
certificates, let each County Alliance
make Its own arrangements to do so.
Such temporary arrangements can
only be lecal in their application and
should be under the control of local
authorities. But let us not lose sight
of the main issue, that of demanding
of Congress an increase in the volume
of currency. Now is the time for us
to press this demand. The banks, by
their action in issuing clearing house
certificates, not only admit, but prove,
that the Alliance is right In demand
ing an increase in the volume of cur
rency, and have virtually adopted the
principle of our sub-treasury scheme.
Let each Alliance reiterate our demand
foi more money through its Congress
maa, and let It be understood at once
that the rights and interests of the ag
ricultural classes must be considered
and protected by Congress or we will
know the reason why.
We mean business-and intend that
that this government shall be run in
the interest of the people and not the
speculators. A stay law would be a
,doubtful benefit to the farmer and I
would advise a v-ery 'careful considera
tion of the matter b., our people before
they demand it of the Legislature.
The'Alliance must do norhing that
will reflect upon the honesty and in
tegrity of Its members. Any law to
stay the collection of a debt made prior
to the enactment of such a law would
be unconstitutional, having boen so
declared by thie Supreme Court of the
State in 1866. A stay law, instead of
bringing us relief, in my hamble judg
ment, would bring us rain.

Ofn--a= statement of Condiigen of the Cur
reneryto September 1st.
To the Editor of The Herald andNews:
The mor bly statement of the Treasury
department as te the condition of the cur
rency, for September 1st., furnishes sev
eral remarkable and very encouraging
changes compared with that for August
lst-, only one month earlier. For in
stance, it shows an increase of the gener
al stock of gold, coined or issued, of 827,
242,488,-i. e., from 3520,2784567, August
1, to $547,.516,05,-Sept. 1. It shows an
increase in actual circulation of gold coin
for the same period of 852,556,427,-i. e.,
from *416,909,941,-Aug. 1, to $469,466,-.
It also shows an incras in the general
stock of National Bank notes ,for same
period of $15,225,221,1i. e., from $183,755,
147,-Aug. 1, to $l98,95,368,-Sept. 1.
The increase in actual circulation of Na
tional Bank notes for same per'od was
$15,687,784,-i. e., from $180,1Z..997,
Aug. 1, to $195,822,781,-Sept. 1. Be
sides these two items of increase, there
was also an in,crease in the circulation of
United States Notes (greenback,) of over
$7,000,000; of standard silver dollars of
over $5,000,000, etc; while there was -a
marked decrease in both gold and silver
The net increase in the actual circula
tion of the country during the single
month of August amounted to the nice lit
tie sum of $69,463,654, i. e., from $1,611,
099,017,-Aug., 1. to 1,88o,562,671,-Sept..
1. The per capita increase for this period
was shig'htly over $1, being nowa little
over $25, the largest in our history as a
ration. These are, be it remembered,
strictly official figures, issued by the
Treasury department at the headof which
stands that sterling Democrat, eTohn G.
And yet,in spite of these figures. which
every Co-igressman cain verify iflhe doubts
their correctness, we shall no doubt con
tinue to hear fromn our Alliance orators
and organs the same old errors and false
hoods about the contraction of the cur
rency, and the same abuse of our Nation
al Banks for the part they are alleged to
have in it. And yet, as we see, these
much maligned National Banks have
given us ini a single month over $15,000,
000 increase in our circulation, and they
stand ready to give usat once about $20,
000,000 more, and that too withcut one
dollar of expense to the government, if
our silver fanaties and Ocala visionaries
wMl only stop their senseless opposition
to the bill before Congress to allow them
toissure notes to the full face valueof the
bonds diposited. Cmvs.
