REPORT OF THE GRAND JURY.
Some Matters of Importance for the At
tention of the Court and Our Legisa
To His Honor T. B. Fraser, Judge
Presiding: The Grand Jury would re
spectfully submit the following as their
We have carefully investigated all
matters coming before us of any pub
lic interest. We have given much at
tention to public buildings and county
offices, having investigated all mat
ters given in enarge by the honorable
Solicitor, and returned the same. We
find all the offices in proper order,
everything showing great neatness and
care on the part of each officer. The
exhibits made us by each officer satis
fies us that they are d,,ing their duty,'
except the County Commissioners, to
whom referenee is made later.
The Cormner's books are wfll and
neatly kept and in proper order. Our
examination of the books of this officer
convinces us that there is too great lat
itude given to the construction and in
tent of the law. We find that in the
past two years 64 inquests have been
held at a cost to the county of from
$22 to $55 each, and there has been
seven disinterments with increased
cost. In addition to these, a number
of inquests are held each year by the
Trial Justices. We think that the
Coroner and Trial Justices should be
required to follow more closely the
intent and meaning of the law, espe
cially where death is well known to
have been from -natural causes, and
where there are witnesses to this fact.
The cost to the county is too great, and
if there is no other remedy there should
be legislation on the subject.
We find all the public buildings in
good repair. In.the hall there are some
needed repairs. The basin and the iron
cells and the pipe leading to it need to
be repaired. The iron work should be
painted. The other portions white
washed. From information coming to
us we are of the opinion that there has
been an extravagant expenditure of
public funds, in building bridg,,3 and
buying lumber. We are informed that
there are many instances of this ex
travagance but sight only a few. We
would refer to the bridge over Dun
can's creek and that over Enoree River,
both near Whitmires. Also, the furn
ishing lumber to build side-walks in
the village of Helena. The bridge over
Enoree River should be repaired at
once or there will be additional expense
to the county.
- We recommend that the board of
County Commissioners before the ex
piration of their term of office be re
quired W ellect or cause to be collected
all toot very kind belonging to ti.e
cauuty\ make a full itemized ac
count oi. 'same to be filFi with the
Clerk of'-,.>aft for future referen e by
other Grand Juries. The tools to be
turned over to their successor in offic-e
and a receipt to be taken for the same.
We well know that the examination
of the books of the county officers each
year by the Grand Jury is very imper
fect. This m;sy te because they do not
give the proper time or from the fact
that there is seldom an expert on the
Jury who can undertake such work. We
therefore think it would be in the line
of economy if an officer was chosen by
the Legislature who would be fully
competent whose duty it should be to
make a thorough examination once
each year of the books of every county
officer in each county in the State.
The attention of the Grand Jury has
been called to thbe fact the Sheriff has
been working outside the Jail, prisoners
sentenced for short terms. We have
investigated thbe charge and learn from
the S eriff himself that such is the
fact, but that the labor so exacted was
on the property of the county and for
benefit thereof and without additIonal
to the county.
Referring to the white infant in the
care of a colored woman in this
county and mentioned in our present.
inent at the March term, we find it is
possible at this time to procure a good
and comfortable home for said infant
with responsible wite persons, and
recommend that the County Commis
sioners take charge of said infant and
procure it a good home. We do not
think it proper to allow any compensa
tion to this colored woman for her at
tention, or for medical service.
-As to the office of County Commis
sioners we would say, that we have
examined the same and find the records
well and neatly kept, all claims
filed where we could compare and
verify and vouchers with the exception
of one batch of vouchers from No. 468
to No. 519 inclusive, which could not
be found. In this examination we re
eeived every aid and courtesy at the
hands of Mr. J. C. Dominick, chair
man of the Board.
We recommend that the County
Commissioners procure estimates for
beating the Court House with modern
fixtures such as now used for beating
We would ask our delegation in the
Legislature to investigate the present
law as to the Trial Justice system. We
consider the present system a very ex
pensive mode of dispensing justice. I f
it cannot be improved, we would
recommend that the number of trial
justices in this county be reduced.
We ask that the usual legal fee be
allowed our clerk for services rendered.

Brutus Clay, who is o eof the most in
finentiai men in Madison county, and
Miss Miss Mary Clay visited the Gen
eral yesterday, and found him still
possessed of that undanoted determnina
ti')n which has characterized himmsince
childhood. He told them there was no
use in their pleading with him; he had
made up his .mind, and they knew
from past experience it was unchange
able. They sent friends to see him, but
nothing more could be done. The
neigh borbood has been in a state of
excitement, and no one would go near
the house until after the ceremony was
performed. Then the General sent
word out tbat his friends who desired
could come to see him.
Gen. Clay's .friends and family say
he is in his dotage. He first fell in love
with an older sister of Dora Richard
son. The Richardsons are mnountain
people, and since Mrs. 'Richardson. was
killed on thbe railroad bridge they have
lived on Gen. Clay's place and worked
as domestics. When he fell in love
with the elder Richardson girl Mrs.
Toomey, an Irish woman, was at
work for him. G.en. Clay thought
she was trying to make a match be
tween the Richardson girl and her son
George, and he discharged her. Soon
aflerward Gen. Clay sent for Mrs Too
mey and tried to make up with her.
She told him she was not afraid of him
and his pistols, and that if he would
give her a pistol she would shoot the
dispute out with. him. In telling of
tbe occurrence, Gen. Clay said: "And
I believe she'd have done it, too.t'
Toomey finally ran off withb the girl,
and Gen. Clay turned his attention to
her little Sister.

NO MONEY FOR PREMIUMS.
COLUMBIA, November 16-The Fair
authorities have met with some diffi
culty in raising the money necessary
to meet all of its obligationp. This is
due to the fact that the Fair last year
was a complete financial failure and
that this year while the receipts were
much larger than those of 1893 there
was realiy but one big day.
Last night at the annual meeting of
society a resolution was adop&Qem
powering the executive committee to
borrow money or take any other finan
cial step which in their judgment
might be deemed necessary or expedi
ent for the s' ciety. This morning a
special committee of the society, con
sistinig of Messrs Smythbe, L. D. Childs,
WV. E. Evans and A. H. Wh ite, visited
the mayor of Columbia and at their re
quest he called an extra meeting of-the
city council about noon.
The gentlemen of the committee
appeard before the council and asked
that it make an appropriation of
%2,500 immediately for the financial re
lief of the society, urging as the reason
for the request that tne State Fair
benefits Colutnbia and it was but proper
that Columbia should come to the
society's aid. There was considerable
discussion, many of the aldermen tak
ing the position that the council had
not consulted the citizens and could not
consquently tell what to do with, the
money of the city. They contended
further that they could not be expected
to act on a matter about the legality of
which there was so much doubt; and,
furthermore, that tbe finances of the
city were really in no better condition
tan those of the society.
Whbile the discussion was in progress
several members of thbe council, whose
names could not be ascertained, with
drew from the room and council was
fialy forced to adjourn because of the
lack of a q urum. Thus the matter
stands. WVhat arrangements the so
ciety will make this afternoon for
meetiog all of i's ob!igations is not
known. The executive committee of
the society is still in session.
[The corporat ion counsel subsequent
ly ad vis'ed t hat the city could legally ap
propriate tbe money.-ED. H. &. N.]
MAYOR SLOAN SIGNS THE CHECK.
Acting at once upon the receipt of
the papers City Treasurer Walker drew
the check for the entire amount, Mayor
Sloan affixed his signature and in a
short time the society had its money.
It needs now about 21,5001 to meet all
its oblig tions. The action of Mayor
Sloan meets with general approbation.
All wanted the legality question settled
first. Columbia's proumpt action in
helping the society out of its difficulty
whben her treasury is so depleted will
doubtless be appreciated by the people
of the whole State.

Only Two Parties Needed.
[:St. Louis Globe-Democrat.)
The wr eck which caune to the popu
lists in the recent elections adds an
other illustration to the many which
were furnished before the fact that two
parties are all that are needed by the
American people. All over the country
where the populists had gained a foot
hold they lost ground in the canvasses
of 1893 and 1891. In those which have
just taken place their defeat was con
spicuous and overwhelming. They lost
many ofthe seats which they held in
Congress, and in the State elections in
Kansas and Colorado they were buried
under an avalanche of votes. In Ne
braska. where an improper Republican
nomination for Governor gave them a
chance to carry the election, their small
majority was obtairied through fraud,
and probably .will be overturned by the
courts. The fate of the populists is the
same as that of all the other minor
parties which have appeared in our
politica. The Anti-Masonic, the Know
Nothing, the Greenback and the Labor
parties after strutting and fretting their
little hour upon the stage, passed

COTTON GROWERS OfGANIZE.
A Permanent Association Formed and Im
portant Resointions Adopted.
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Nov. 4.-The
meeting of the cotton growers which
began here, Tuesday, adjourned yester
day after having effected a permanent
organization under the title of the
"Cotton Planters' Association of the
This convention is to meet at least
twice a year and to consist of four del
gates from each ccngressional district
in the cotton growing States and three
delegates at large from each State ap
pointed by the Goveruors of such
States,- irrespective of party preference.
The association is to hold its first meet
ing in Jackson, Miss., the second Wed.
nesday in January, 1895.
The following officers were elected to
serve until the January meeting: Gov
ernor James Stones, of Mississippi,
President; Hon. J. 0. Waddell, of
Georgia, and Commissioner of Agricul
ture for the cotton growing States,
Vice-President; Robert E. Eckeberger,
of Alabama, Secretary, and Professor
James Smith, of Georgia, Treasurer.
The chairman was requested to is
sue an address to all business interests
asking co-operation in obtaining the
objects of the association and the fol
ing resolution was adopted:
"Resolved, That the honest convic
tion of this convention as practical
cotton growers is that the estimates
that are being sent out by the cotton
exchanges in reference to the crop are
excessive, and it is the belief of this

GLOOM OF COTTON GROWERS.
The Bear Conspiracy to Force-Down the
[From the N. Y. Tribune, Nov. 13.J
The bear element in speculative ex
changes is one of the most vicious ob
stacie the industries of the country
have bad to contend against. The
depressing influence the bears of
speculation have had for the last year
upon legitimate trading has been one
of the unfortunate features of hard
times, and recuperation under their
savage attacks has been slow. Natural
conditions may, of necessity, compel
prices to drpp, but then the bears force
them still lower, never, taking any
thought of who is to-be the loser. The
bear element In speculation has caused
more distress, bankruptcy and ruin
than any adverse condition of the
times. It is an element that stops at
nothing to make profits for itself, and
it revels in its success.
Unfortunately for the people of the
South, their staple product, cotton, has
for the last year ben the foot ball of
the operators of decline in the trading
on the cotton exchanges here and
abroad. There has been no let up in
the steady warfare they have carried
on against it, and every possible til:k
and device has been used to hammer
down the price. Bear pools have been
formed time and again in- all- specula
tive exebanges for the purpose of ruin
ing one man; they have been formed
for the purpose of wreeking corpora
tions, and they have succeeded, wheth
er or not intentionally, in throwing
thousands of people into bankruptcy,
It seems a most useless and most cer
tainly a thankless job to call the atten
tion of the bear speculators to the dIs
aster for which they are responsible.
The men who call themselves bears
seem to be without hearts, and they
satisfy the small amount of conscience
they have have with liberal donations
to the missionary funds. The damage
which bear speculation in cotton has
done the Southern' cotton planters is
Under the present adverse conditions
of the cotton market the prospect for
the Southern people is anything but
right. In the cotton belt, where so
inany depend for a livelihood on cotten
culture, there will be great distress, and
it is Impossible to estimate the amount
of suffering that will be experienced.
The low price of cotton has had such
a distressing effect upon the Southern
ers that they are ready to take fright
at every possible suggestion of adverse
circumstances, and they are clearly in
a most anfortunate plight. The buying
power of the people who produce cot
ten is greatly diminished. In fact their
buying power Is reduced to the bare
necessities of life.
John L Dunn, of the firm of John I.
Dunn & Co, of this city, who for many
years was interested in the loaning of
moneys on lands throughout the West
and South and Is now a trustee for
holders of mortgages in the South rep
resenting loans aggregating between
$1,000,000 and $2000,00,said yesterday:
"The situation In the South is griev
ous.in the extreme, and there is not a
single bright prospect. To illustrate the
ruin wrought by low price of cotton to
the planter I will cite two cases: A
plantation near Vicksburg was pur
chased In 1889 for I$18,000; a loan of
$6,000-wat' procured upon it, and when
sold out this year there was only one
bid for the property, and that was for
a nominal amount, madein the Interest
of the lender. Another place, purchased
at the same time for $3,300, was recent
ly sold for $1,000. All cotton planta
tions, except In occasional Instances,
have depreciated in the same ratio. The
value of city really has been fairly well
maintained, and the failures in jobbing
circles have not been as numerous as
might have been expected. This is ex
plained by the fact that the decline in
cotton, while enormous, has not been
violent, giving merchants time to cur
tail credits and liquidate indebtedness.
The prevailing Impression that cotton
growers are free of indebtedness asecom
pared with Western farmers Is errone
ous. The objectionable system ofecredits
between factor and grower is now ruin
ing the latter. The cotton factor makes
an advance in the shape of a lodger
credit to the grower for an amount
equal to $10 or $20 for each bale he ex
pects to be able to shIp; a chattel mort
gage is taken on the crop before -it
exists. The factor charges against this
account the supplies furnished for mak
ing the crop, at prices netting 20 to 50
per cent profit to himself. Thus it is
that in a season like the present, when
cotton is selling at cost of prodnction
the majority of growers are penniless,
and the result brings distress to the
entire cotton belt population,"
It is now being argued by friends of
he South and by all people who want
to see one part of the coumtry as pros
perous as another that the Southerners'
interests should tbe more diversified. In
the cotton belt, where a fall in the
price of cotton like the present comes
to that staple, there is no otber industry
for the people to fall back upon, and so
the disaster is more appalling. The bard
times from which the people of the
South are suffering may have a benefi
cial effect in one way-their eyes may
be opened to the great necessity of ex
tending their industries so as to em
brace something more than cotton cul
ture. The law of supply and demand
would not then be worked so satisfac
torily by the bears.
