WHAT IS SEIGNIORAGE?
A good deal has been said in the
newspapers of late about the Bland
Seigniorage Bill, which has just been
passed by both Houses of Congress.,
No doubt there are a good many peo
ple who do not know just what is
meant by seigniorage, or the coinage
of the seigniorage. The New York
Recorder recently offered a prize of a2.5
for the best definition of the word, and
it was won by Mr. F. J. Herzog, of
New York, and this is his definition,
as we find it in the Atlanta ConsLitu
"Seigniorage consists of the differ
ence between the cost of an amount of
bullion and the face value of the coins
minted from it. By the Sherman Act
the government was compelled to pur
chase 4,500,000 ounces of silver per
month at the market price. As the
price of silver fluctuated, so the amount
of treasury notes issued in payment of
this bullion sometimes increased
sometimes diminished. The down
ward tendency having been greater in
the last few years, there were issued,
from the time of the passage of the
Sherman Aet to its repeal, $154,000,000
in treasury notes, to cover an amount
of bullion which should actually have
made 209,000,00 silver dollars. In
other words, there is now an amount
of bullion, in excess of the reserve ne
cessary to cover the $154,000,000 treas
ury notes, in the treasury which, if
coined, would make 5.5,000,000 silver
dollars, against which the Seigniorage
Bill is to issue paper currency, and so
put$555000,000in the treasury and help
thegovernment out of its financial dif
"This explains'the matter very clear
ly and yet concisely. It would be dif
ficult to throw more light upon the
subject in the same space."
Webster defines it: "Something
claimed or taken by virtue of sovereign
prerogative; specifically a certain toll or
deduction on bullion brought to the
mint to be coined, designed originally
to defray the expenses of coinage, but
after made a branch of royal revenue.
This deduction is still in force with
certain modifications of the original
system at government mints."
iorage, in finance, is the charge levied
by the government to cover the ex
pense of coinage."
It seems to us that Mr. Herzog's defi
nition covers the case as well or better
than any we have seen. We have been
asked several times what is meant by
seigniorage, and we hope these expla
nations will cover the case fully and
We stated last week that Gen. Izlar
had been elected Congressman from
the ls. District by about 200 majority.
The reports say his majority is from
500 to 600. The board of canvassers will
meet this week to canvas the returns,
and declare the result.
It is said that Dr. J. W. Stokes will
contest theelection.TheRegiter should
talk to Dr. Stokes. It has announced
thathehas been defeated and that being
the case he should eat his crow and
bow to the will of the people.
The Bland Seigniorage Bill has passed
the Senate by a majority of 13. The
vote was 44 to 31. Thirty Democratic
Senators voted for it and three were
pardin its favor.
It is reported that Senator Irby is
going to resign as Chairman of the
ocratic party for this State. We
wthelieve it when we see it. Isn't
thr nold saying something about
fewdie, dnone resign?
C.H.W. J. Hem, the Georgia hu

Atlata son,says: "I can always tell

Mr. Tindal wrote a very conserva
tive letter to the managers of the Ab
beville meeting. He has now issued
a circular letter in which he says he
would appreciate the high honor of
being Governor of South Carolina, but
he cannot undertake a heated cam
paign to secure the honor and thus aid
and be a party to further strife a:id bit
It is a pity the Reform movement
has not more leaders of the type of Mr.
* Tindal. We have been very favorably
* mpressed with his utterances of late.
They have the righ t ring a bout them.
He is still true to the principles of the
Reform movement, but he does not be
lieve in keeping up the bitterness and
animosity. He is too conservative to
suit the leaders of Reform in this State
at this time, but if the Reformers want
peace and harmony restored they
should put up a man like Mr. Tindal
for Governor, and we believe they
could accompl'sh that end. He seems
willing to treat the minority with
that consideration and respect which
is due them.
The Herald and News believes that
there are enough really conservative
men in both factions to elect a man
like Mr. Tindal, if they could only be
organized and had a leader. It is time
to be rid of extremists of all faetions.
There is nothing to be gaiu.ed by this
We publish this week the new school

Governor Tillman should now apol- m
ogize to Judge Simonton for the ugly m
things be has said about him. The g
Herald and News took the position all tc
along that the proper way to settle the If
matter was to take the case up on its o
merits and let us know the law in the w
case and when that was passed upon
it should be accepted by all law-abiding
citizens. The railroads owe about
$200,000 of taxes, State, county and
school. When this is paid it will help
out the State and county treasury very
The Herald and News is glad the
matter has been determined and if it is
right and proper for the railroads to m
pay these taxes why they should be Is
made to pay them.
We learn from the Abbeville Press o
and Banner that Gen. Robt. R. Hemp- p1
bill does not want to be Governor and '
will not have any State office, but as a
number of his friends want him to go is
back to the Senate he will stand for re- a
election. There now. What will the ia

The Herald and News interviewed o
sometime ago some fifty-seven per- of
sons on the question of water
works. Twenty-two were in favor
of the system unconditionally; b
twenty-two were opposed, and thir- tl
teen favored .the system condition- c
ally. If a canvass were made now no d
doubt the opponents would be in favor d
of the system. X
When it came to a vote in the town ti
of Aiken on the question, the vote stood h
108 for and 3 against. We believe that t
by the time everything is in shape for d
a vote on the question, Newberry will r'
stand in about the same proportion. If n
it does not, it should. There is no step p
we need more to take just now than
the one that will give us water works
To judge from the daily papers there n
is a great deal of wire pulling going on
among the leaders just about this time. tj
It was first said that the race for Gov- n
ernor was to be narrowed down to t
John Gary Evans and W. H. Ellerbe.
Now, since the Lexington meeting, T
we are told that Mr. Ellerbe is not h
enough of a stump speaker to make the
race and that he will be asked to step
down and out. That W. D. Evans is b
the man to pit against his cousin John I
Gary. And some talk of Mr. McLaurin i
being invited to come home from t
Washington to enter the field against n
Mr. John Gary. It is said that the a
latter will be a candidate whether he
gets the reform convention endorse- b
ment or not.
It seems, if these reports are to be re- c
lied upon, that Mr. John Gary Evans
is not the choice of the alliance wing of b
the Reform party, but that he is Mr.
Tillman's choice, and the effort of the e
alliance wing of the party is to secure U
some one as a candidate who is a match E
for Mr. Evans on the stump. tl
Well, it is none of our quarrel and q
we don't care much what they do.
But we see no mention made of Dr. 3

an abundant harvest. t
We have an organization here which
gives every member an office. This is u
the joint stock company of the Press

organized last week, and the following ei
officers were elected: W. A. Moseley, si

The Prosperity Canning Company is o
a rather small institution, yet it is one i
of which the Prosperityites are justly (
proud. At a recent meeting of the b
stockholders an annual dividend of ten r;
per cent. was declared and paid. This is e
certainly a goed dividend, and one that fi
should be considered as highly commen- e
datory of small enterxprises,which go far d
in building up both town and country. t
It is not only renumerative as an
investment, but it puts hundreds and t
even thousands of dollars into the
pockets of farmers at a time when t
they mostly need it, and for fruit that a
would otherwise be lost by rot and t
feeding to pigs. Besides this it gives e
employment, at good wages, to from
fifteen to thirty boys and men, white t
boys and men, of town and country t
jut at a time when they bad almost e
noting else to do. We need many
more such enterprises, not only in
Poprt,but all over our country. (

THE RI.'ORM MASS MEETING.
s Gubernatorial Candidates Turn Up.
J. A. siigh Elected Pelegate to April
Conference In Columbia, The At
tendance not 'Large Or Euthu
seastic. But Good Natured."
It was a delightful meeting. We
ean the mass meeting of the refor
era, whien was held at Newberry
st Saturday under the call issued by
ie Rev. J. A. Sligh in his circular let
r. It was for the purpose of hearing
eo reform candidates for Governor tell
their respective claims upon the peo
,e for their suffrage, but the candi
ttes gave us the go by. None of them
trned up and even our own county
an went with the crowd over to Lex
gton. So our meeting was without
speaker in the shape of a gubernator
,1 candidate. But the meeting was
eld all the same and a delegate elected
the conference to be held in Colum
a under the Colleton idea. And
very body was in a good humor and
te meeting passed off without any
is or friction. It may have been be
use every one was of the same way
thinking and there was no reason or
casion for friction.
The crowd was not large. Only one
Dte on a division was held and there
ere only twenty-two votes coanted,
st there were all told something more
ian one hundred present. That in
uded the reporters and college stu
ents and spectators from the town.
From the attendance here on Satur
ay we are almost ready to believe that
least some of the people are getting
red of politics. The leaders are now
aving a big time and we suppose the
eople will come in after awhile for
eir time. We shall wait and watch
evelopments and try to keep our
aders posted. If you want all the
ews and both sides of the political
estions The Herald and News is the
aper you are looking for.
The meeting was called to order by
tev. J. A. Sligh, chairman of the can
Upon motion of Mr. J. T. Duncan
Er. Sligh was made permanent chair
ian of the mass meeting.
Mr. Sligh said that he would have
referred some one else to have had
iat honor but as it was his purpose
ever to shrink from any duty, he
zanked them for the : onfidence

[e said they were a little unfortunate.

ear the candidates for Governor; but
texington was a little ahead of them
nd having called a meeting first the
indidates and prospective candidates
ad accepted the Lexington invitation.
[e had written to each candidate and
2ey had all responded regretting their
lability to attend. He said it was.for
2e meeting to say whether another
leeting should be held or not. The
ieeting was also for the purpose of
iscssing the Colleton plan and elect
ig a delegate to attend a meeting to

We might say here that Chairman
ligh did not read any of the letters,
bough we understand he was re
uested to read some of them.
Letters were received from WV. D.
Ivans, J. G. Evans, J. E. Tindal, Dr.
V. H. Timmerman,W. H. Ellerbe and
)r. S. Pope. Mr. Sligh told us after
be meeting that Dr. Pope requested
is letter read, but be wanted to get
brough with the meeting and hardly
iw the necessity of reading them.
)r. Pope's letter was to the effect that
e had never addressed the people of
lexington, and having received the
vitation he had decided to accept it.
'hat the people of Newberry knew
im and knew his position on public
uestions and he felt sure they would
iuse his absence, thoughhe regretted
.e could not be with them. At some
ture time, if it was desired, he would
e glad to address the people of New
erry County. That he was a candi
ate for Governor and if nominated

Mr. Cole. L. Blease, who was called
Charleston on account of the illness
f his brother-in-law and who did not
sturn until Saturday at 1 o'clock, also
rote Mr. Sligh a letter explaining his
bence and requesting it read to the
ieeting, but it was not read and no
ent.ion made of it, we presume for the
ason thathe was not considered a can
idate for Governor. So much for the
tters that were not read.
Mr. WV. C. Sligh moved that we
dopt the Colleton plan.
Mr. Duncan said be did not know
iat every one fully understood the
lleton "plan in its details. As he
derstood it there was to be one mem
er from each county, who should meet
Columbia on April 4, and formulate
plan for calling a State Convention
Reformers, and arrange for such con
ention, and also to ac't as a campaign
ymmittee for the Reformers during
e coming campaign. It was unforto
ate that we had none before. In the
lection of this committee it was well
give the members some discretionary
owers. We cannot afford to go
the campaign with halh a dozen
didates. We must have a prun
ig down. In order that we treat
na candidate right each one
2uld be given an opportunity to be
eard. Each one should be required to
ledge himself to stand by the nomina
ons when they are made. We ought
go in the campaign with one candi
ate for Governor and all of us be pre
ared to roll up our sleeves and go to
rork for that candidate.
Chcman Sligb said he wished to
al the attention of the meeting to the
ct that the conference which was to
e held in Columt,ia on April 4, was to
ecide whether we were to have a State
~ouvention and if it was decided to
ave one this committee was to ar
ange for it. It seemed to him that it
rould be well for; the meeting to say,
*rst,whether or not it was in favor of a
onvention. There are Reformers who
o not. favor a convention and then
bere are those who do favor one.
Mr. W. C. Sligh's motion to adopt
be Colleton plan was then adopted.
Mr Duncan nominated as the delegate
be Hon. J. A. Sligh, and there being
0 other nominations he put the ques
ion and Mr. Sligh was unanimously

lewould like to be instructed, first, as

Mr. Witherspoon moved that the

Dr. Wycbe said a great deal depends
ipon how we viewed politics. There
.re a great many people who claim
here is nothing in politics but a
cramble for office. If you look upon
olitics, as a great warfare struggling
r the nomination of some man to
.n office, if that was all there w.as in
tolitics he, for one, would retire from
be field in disgust. But in his judg
ment it was a far more serious matte
It involved a principle and a policy f
the enactment of such principle iut
laws that would benefit the countr!
The most serious and import:,t of a
questions in his judgment was tt
tinancial question. He wanted to pu
suesuch a poliev in this State as woul
tend to secure legislation that woul
give us financial relief. It wal ver
plain to his wind that the leadin
linanciers of this country were tryin
to force us to a gold standard and b<
cause by so doing it would make thei
richer and the balance of us poore
We have the spectacle in this countr
of producing the biggest crops ev
raised and yet there is actual want au
suffering, and be believed it was a
due to the financial policy of the goi
ernment. If we had the right financi
policy we would have the most prosp
rous times we have ever enjoyed in tb
country. In this State we see o

policy and the other opposing it. 1

adopted and the meeting went on r

that our delegate be instructed to fav,

his motion did not receive a second.
Mr.Witherspoon said that the Colur

Mr. Mills moved that our delega
go uninstructed as to nominations.
Chairman Sligh said he wished
state again that this meeting in Colur
bia was not for the purpose of makir

calling a State convention of retorime
and to arrange the details of holdit

bewe feel that he now rests from tho
fle struggles of this fleeting life in the

chosen ones; basking in the light of His

ek hut so few, they cowered and were held
:e, in subjection by his many virtues. Hi
b- often expressed a willingness to entel
into the other life when it should pleasi
the Father to call him home; and wi
feel that He has called him home, and
that He doeth all things well. But
oh. 'twas so hard to give him up!
