THE .STOCK LAW.
In the List number of the Kdgc
fteld Aifirrtisri' Ceti. M W. Gary
gives his opinion on the question of
extending the provision of the stock !
law to Fdgetield County in answer to
a note addressed to him by thirty
seven citizens of the county. No
says that the lands of this State
originally belonged to the Slate, and
were by degroes granted to the eitb
/.eus of the State. For years there
wore thousands of acres known as;
"public hinds," which furnished :i
common range for the stock of every
citizen. Now there sue no public
lands and the products of the soil
have changed, the small fields have
changed and commons for pasturage
I know of no lav.- that gives the
owner of stock the right to pasture
them upon the land ni his neighbor,
and ho is liable under an old statute
to an action for damages for trespass
of stock. 'Then the stock owner has
no right to complain if his neighbors
claim exclusive right to pasturage
upon their lands. As there is no
law or equity in the claim of the stuck
owner, I propose next to consider the
proposed ohauge in the law from an
The first thing to ascertain is:
\V hat is the value of the stock in this
The second is: What is the rest
of the fencing of the State?
By reference to the statistics id
I ST I, of the agricultural department
(?f the General Government, the value
of our stock ia $2,401,282. The cost
of fencing is $21,1 .'10,878. These
ligures disclose the astounding fact
that we expend more than ten dol
lars in building fences to keep out
one dollar's worth of stock.
It is evident that the custom, as it
now exists, is in favor of the owner of
?stock, and puts at a disadvantage
die land owner, the tenter and the
laborer, in the ratio of ten dollars to
the dollar. An.1, it must no! be for
gotten that this is a cotton growing
State, and that stock raising is only
in incident in our agricultural pur
suits. The present system of labor
makes the adoption of the stock law
an agricultural necessity. It is a
notorious fact that the average value
of our land per acre will not reach
four dollars, as is evidenced by our
various public sales of land. The!
cost of building the fem e is morel
thai) the market value of the land,
and t here is a wide spread dispoM-j
tiou on the pari of the freedmen to
ditrk the splitting of rails. There
are but few moss fences in our best
organized farms; and plantations, as
a general rule, only have an outside
fence, and it not strong enough to
ceep the stock out of our Heids. Stock
that is not kept under fence usually
-appears when turned out at large.
?lf-prcservatto:i is the lirst law of
iiu;ttrc, and itie tillers of the soil will
kill stock before tiny will lose their
crops, upon which .< pchds the sup
port of themselves, their wives and
children. And enlightened public
opinion will not blame them for it.
(Jen. Gary says that he did not
press ibis mailer while he was in the
Senate because he thought it was best
0 wait until Newberry, Aikeu and
Lexington were ready t<> adopt the
law, and so save the expense of build
ing a line fence bei ween the counties.
