Tho other day we copied an item from the Teller, showing that Mr. St?.bbifis was riding about the coun try on private business, using passes, which was answered, not in Tim TIMES, where it belonged, nor not by Mr. S. but by Capt. Wilcox, in part, as follows: To Editor of the Gazette—Sir: In THK TIMESthe of Jan. 8 is an article copied from the Teller with editorial comments. The'reller man thinks he has a huge joke upon the Richland county Agricultural Association. The point ot the joke, however, is lost in the rat that there is not enough truth in the article to eeason it The comments of TH* TIM*:S are as false as the article in the Teller. I wan a pHAscnuer in the car with Mr. Stebbins at the time referred to by the Teller, and in conversation ^D??C with ru aH him when «"'l#ct*d %'W. Mr. Stelibinw handed him what I supposed to be his pass in the same manner that any man would present h« ?.ther 'orm- The conductor w"ft0°t.word or smile, and Mr Stebbins and myselfcoutinued ourconversatios. TtL": ."'s "1H' farmers "were deter mined tbat.tneir members should not even ride oyer railroads with passes that he must neither jive nor accept favors at the company's hands." Now how does the Teller man know thnt? The larmers said nothing of the kind aethlne that could be tortui«d into any nuch interpretation. So his next assertion that'-Upon this platrorm the candidates made the flght and were elected" is as false as the rent orhis article. Tim Twin •ays: "The.tamers' resolutions, passed at Dwiglit in their* convention last rail, treated wholly with railroad monopolies, and Mr. Mel. Dins won the race wholly oil the ground of anti railroad tnoaopoly." Now THI TIMKS Knows this to beallfals -, out MM the editor has persintently maligned tin misreprasented the farmers' association Irom tlie start we can expect nothing more from THE 1IMKS Iii answer to above, in part, The Tellers iys: Nowwedo not know Mr. Wilcox ui.lessneis Mr. til# Wheeler Wilcox and if so we do not blame him for lying. But Mr. Wilcox was not on the train spoken of, his statement in the Ga zette to the contrary aotwithstanding. Mr. Stebbins weat through the movement* as de scribed in the Teller, and this church wrgan will not lie—even for its friends.' Mr. Stelibii.s has a perfect right to ride on a pass, but when he does so he should not deny it and try to make it ftppeur that he in nn injured pnrty wtien :i news paper Hhowe that he simply Impotted upon the creduility of the people who elected him. Here are our comments in full the Captain declares to be so false: The farmers'resolutions passed at Dwight in their convention last fall treated wholly with railroad monopolies. And Mr. Stebbins won the race wholly on the ground of nntl-railroad monopoly Now the question cornea up, can a representative 6f the people, who has his mileage to«nd from the legislative meeting paid by the people, accept passes from railroads which he times during the two years' term act just precisely toward the railroads and the peo ple tn his public duties as he would do, did he »o. accept the passes This would be, perhaps, a pretty good time for the hon gentleman to rise and explain. Mr. Itebbine has the floor. There is nothing untruthful, dis courteous or inopportune in our re marks touching the Teller item. Much less that should throw our friend, the captain, into such a state of hostility toward us and have him "go off" 111 statements that we are uutruthful, in fact, gen erally false toward the farmers1 movement. And here are the resolutions passed last fall: Wheraas, we, the farmers of Richland county have organized for mutual protection against railroad, elevator and other monopolies, and official corruption in the administration of county atl'airs, A And, whereas, we have met in convention to nominate men to till our county offices and to express our preference for members of the lesis. lature, therefore be it Resolved, First, that we only desire to have honest and capable men in office "and believe that we have made selection of only such men to be voted for at the election lu November. And Resolved, Second: That we will surely support the men we have nominated, and call upon all farmers in the county to also give tliem their hearty support. And Resolved, Third: That in all legislative measures which maybe proposed for the pur pose ot protecting our interacts and preventing oppression by the monopolies aforesaid, we are opposeuto anything iikevindictive measures and ouly favor such measures as will bti just aud honest as between our interests and the inter ests of capital invested in railroads, eleva tors, Jtc. SAM'L TAYLOR, SOCLE. J. B. WILCOX. Thus, it will be seen that in the beginning of the preamble and the last of the resolutions, the conven tion dealt with monopolies, making casual mention of nominations for county offices. Any one at all fa miliar with the character of tain in the various meetings of the alliance, knows that great stress was put up on legislative matters, this is per fectly patent to everybody, in fact is an important factor in the insti tution. But then the resolutions are hardly in keeping with the general fusilade kept up by the would be al liancers and hangers-on, and where they do digress from monopolies, do so to bind united action in support of their county nominations. But was this, even, carried out The captain further says: Everbody, including the Teller and the Times knawa that our legislators are paid barely enough to meet their expenses also that railroad passes area courtesy extended to them all over the ITnlon, by the roads they must use In going to and fiom the capital and their home's. Nobody with common sense supposes that these passes are ottered as a bribe, or that in accepting one a legislator compromises himselr or is thereby .bound to vote lor orTavor any measure enabling the railroads to oppress tho producer. That is singular argument for an anti-monopolist, but perhaps it shows just how much sincerity there l8aaefis*agmiaHBBgTO^^ -.-:. -r'- 'v,»,# '^r^.Ws '^"Vi-'.l1'"^ -iA^,. /:'i ^V^K'T. .•'•* Vol. •«.

Tnese passes are not tendered to be used by legislators between their tomes and the capital, only, but may be used prior to the meeting and afterwatds, in the legislator's personal*uffairs. It may be that.

It will be our best pleasure in the future to show that we have been perfectly right in this matter and have not taken an untenable stard in any part of it. We are not here to fight the farmers, far from it, but in public matters and under all circumstances will try and represent the truth, as it occurs to us. Xotice.
