THE CO-OPERATIVE COLONIST
Published at Port Royal is among our
exchanges. It enters boldly, and confi
dently upon a scheme, which has many
praiseworthy feautures,' Jmt which must ]
be cautiously treated, or it may fall into
the very evil, it aims to resist. The ob
ject in view is practical economy, and to
subserve the cuds desired by eo-opern
tion that might work to the pecuniary
benefit, and be confined solely to persons
embraced in (ho purview of any associa
tion, is. questionable; because counter
schemes will be sprung by other associa
tions for their special benefit, all of which
will have a selfish tendency, and what
may be gained at one point, will be lost
at another. That Co operation is almost
forced npon the South, and West, is an
obvious conclusion. Money at the great
financial centres is worth on good securi
ty seven per cent. Itcosts at least 38
per cent for the Southern farmer to move
bis crop. The "Western farmer fares bet
ter. The interest on advancements is 18
per cent, and the profit on the goods he
buys 20 per cent. If the Southern far
mer had his "Grange Bank" he could
gefhi.s crop to market for at least 20 per
cent*! If under the present system of
agriculture a farmer cannot get money
as favorably as a merchant; ho must not
be blamed if he combines for self defense.
There is hut one danger ahead; let him
defeat if he can the combination against
hi;; inter*My., hut by prudential conduct
save his grange or association of co-oper
ative defeusp, from becoming in turn a
combined aggressor. Another experi

LIFE ASSOCIATION OF AMERTC?.
How to Increase Home Capital.
In our advertising columns will be
found an offer by the "South Carolina
Department" of "The LifeAssociation
of America," to loan money on real es
tate. The charter of this company pre
vides that all fho reserves belonging to a
department shall bo invested and kept
invested iu such department. This in
stitution, therefore, offers to our citizens,
not only the amplest protection (its assets
are nearly $5,000,000) but in addition a
"Homo Company'-' to help build up our
waste places. The immense amount of
money now seeking this mode of invest
ment suggests the importance of this'
feature of the company's plan of doing
Tho New York Herald not long since,
in speaking of "the many millions of
dollars, paid in annually from all parts
of the United States to the New York
Insurance Companies," says, "This in
flux of wealth is one of the most impor
tant sources of tho financial prosperity
and commanding position of New York."
To the extent tho Lifo Association is
patronized by our people, will they be
reciprocally benefittcd iu the manner
indicated, and when they begin to learn
to patronize sound Southern institu
tions that are managed by the very best
I business men of our own State, instead of
sending, their money North to bo invested
by men of whom they know nothing,
except by hearsay, then, und,not till
then, will our State begin to assume itd
Over sixty gentlemen, President's of
the best New York Life Insurance Com
panies last year sent in the most urgent
petition to the New York Legislature,
urging them to rescind the law compel
ling them "to invest their whole assets
in the city of New York and a radius of
fifty miles around its metropolis," stating
among other cogent reasons "that If was
unfair to drain one sectiou to enrich an
other, that some of their best customers
woro from the South and West, who con
tributed annually millions of dollars to
the enriching of New York, yet could
not get one dollar in return on their real
estate although tho companies would
risk nothing by it but would benefit
thcmselvesand their patrons, by afford
ing so reasonable an accommodation."
The Companies would obtain a higher
rate of interest on their investments, and
thereby be able to declare a better divi
dends, their Southern and Western pa
trons would be able to rebuild their
places devastated by Northern armies."
With true Yankee selfishness, however
this petition was utterly disregarded, and
our people still persist in "returning
good for evil."
The commencement of the troubles in
this State was with the illegal election of
Win, P. Kellogg, the present executive,
which led to an armed resistance on the
part of-tho taxpayers, and resulted in a
reign of anarchy and bloodsh.eed in va
rious parts of the State. Tho opposition
was not to Kellogg personally, as bad
as he may have been, ho could be no
worse than tho hulk of his parly. The
fight was for existence. Ground to tho
earth with taxation, excluded from all
legislation, and trodden upon by the
basest of rulers, tho people of this com
monwealth made a resistance. It is now
checked by the strong arm of the United
States law, President Giant issues a
proclamation, ordering the people to dis
perse. The peoplo of Louisiana, as also
those of the entire Soulh, are in a hope*'
less degraded position, and Gon. Grant,
soaring on tho wings of eaglo liberty,
feels if ho would confess it, that ho pre
sides over a governiiiuut that has done
moro to blight civilization, nnd degrade
his race, than any rqle outside of barba
rism. Merely for party power (which is
a failure and a disgraoe) he consents to
sec the entire South in tho hands of|
thieves am! perjured politicians, and as
the head of the- Republican party *ho en
dorses tho rottenness by not using Ids in
fluence to check it.
Dear Times :?Knowing that^; you
have the welfare of tho people at heart,
and are ever ready to advance tho wel
fare of our community, I take the liberty
of addressing you the following :
On Thursday last while returning
home from my work, I saw in front of |
one of our largest business houses, n
drunken hoy, about 15 years old. Said
youth was smoking a cigar and stagger
ing to and fro in frout of tho door.
Now, Mr. Editor, if this was tho only
cnee in our town, it would not seem so
bad, but very frequently we see this sight
of druukonncss hero. Now if thero is
not among the liquor dealers of Orange
burg, enough of self respect, humanity,
; conscience, or common sense, to stop Ibis
fiendish crime, against society, we de?ire
to know if there is any law of the land
that will compel them to do so.
It would seem that the youth of our
country arc encouraged to drink, nmfto
I visit places where drinking is carried^ on,
instead of being taught to "taste not, nor
Parents ; tench your little ones to shun
the rum shop, or they may reproach you
some day in a manner you least expect.
You may say, "my son will never be seen
intoxicated." I a.uk you, what is to pre
vent it? Is he not encouraged to drink
by the example set before him/ by hi
comrades, or youths of similar ago. The
Town Council encourages the sale of in
toxicating liquors to boys, insomuch as
they do not take steps to prevent it.
I noticed some time since a.paragraph
in a newspaper, stating that "a boy fell
dead in front of a grogery, whero he had
been made beastly drunk." In another
case,' "one small boy fatally stabbed an
other in a quarrel. Both were drunk." I
Comment is not necessary, the people j
c-hould frown down an evil which is fiat)
