Some Wise SiiKiteslions on the
<|(iestion or interest.
'' Editor Press un<l It<i/iiier ;
limit boom of husis is j?rev:iiIiiijc through''
out the county as to factory enterprises. Kv?
" cry town or hamlet seems t<> be competing id
juivlng birili to faetoiy or railroad project*.
p | There seems to l?e a wonderful propensity
11! in human nature emerging simultaneous!} to
? I give velocity lo the wheels of tliu"earof pro'
^re>s." Abbeville village, Greenwood and
Due West arc conspicuously observed in making
etforis to establish a factory in their res'
spective limits. I understand also a site lias
been purchased on the Saluda River for that
purpose. I hear it intimated that the thriv'f
ing town (Houca Path) in an adjacent county,
is meditating seriously on a similar question.
' Perhaps others are in embryo in our midst.
e All ot which, are within a radius, less than
I twenty miles. J presume inu a.\ium umnII
the merrier" would be relevant.
\ If means were available the comity would
5 soon become overstocked with factories. Farl'
mers will have to increase the area in cotton
culture when they get in running order, to
'' Keep them agoing. I think, one or two of
* Vauderbllt, Hotiisciiild or Jay Gould's pecu'
uiary resources would be required to equip
'* the contemplated Institutions in a lirst class
st> le. 01 course no other kind would likely
prove to be remunerative to stockholder or
henetlcial to tiieeomiuunity. Astonishingly,
y what a sensation has been produced by the
. slight perceptible improvement of this year's
s crop. It seems ambition has been in a latent
condition, pent up, and hailed the opportuI
nity of making a "big display."'
t The spirit that has gave rise to such uplieavi
al of aspiration is praisewoithy. Tlx- excite-j
. mentis too sudden and great to be durable.
I'll venture to assert an overplus of the proceeds
of agricultural products of this year
have not been realized by the farmers to liquidate
"old score*" by one-half that have
been accumulating for the last four or live
years and a liviug chance to remain foran!
other year. I have no desire to present any
1 obstacle to the public that I conceive will op;
erate against carrying out such schemes. J
1 wish all towns a full measure of success. But
1 this one fact, (dearth of surplus cash) Is so
' glaring and obvious that it should not heed1
iessly be overlooked. Such a public calamity
1 could not he averted. A few good crop years
1 are the only means to remedy the existing
evil. I am not opposing factories solely on
the ground of merit. I admit some public
good will accrue from them.
, I claim, providentially, to a great extent,
j the farmers as a generality arc in a straiten
condition and can't take stock and cancel old
" debts ami "ante up" to Justify the nndcrtak1
ing. Farmers are "few and tar between" that
, can Invest largely and show a clean record ol
li iiibuk tlinii?:iiid.K iinnn tlion
s.imis to build first class factories. Capitalists
arc tbe ones t > build them and farmers to
I patrouize them, if they are encouruned to do
so. Experience has taught me that a better
I price for cotton at. a factory is 110 incentive.
Cotton buyers for the North or England will
. equally give as much or more and pay the
| freight, commissions, and instance charges
besides. I have heard of a cotton resident
factor stationed under the sound of spindles
buying for Northern factories and at times
giving a better price than the factory buyer.
I admit when cotton is delivered at the door
1 of a factory there is more margin for a better
price, but sell-iutcrest prompts to get it cheap
.is possible and it governs itsell like all coi
ton buyers according to the Liverpool marI
ket. I have heard the idea advanced, the
lock in a factory is a paying Investment.
Perhaps, it will pay hand>otne!y after a dci
cade of years or perhaps a little earlier. 1
imagine under the most prosperous condition
. >f ? new factory, you cannot expect much
short of ten yen is, a declared dividend.
The law allows a much better investment
for your surplus cash in legalizing ten per
cent, interest. Loan Si.oWand in ten years it
?vill make ;1,'!09. I think that ten pcrccnt. is
one of the greatest existing batriers thatob
1 struct.s the money investment in public enterprises.
It appears to me, the farmer.1
movement or more appropriately, nlllancc,
that are to convene at Columbia on 1st De'
ecmbrr instant, could not aim at a greater
blessing to tbe mass of the people of tbe
' stnte, tlian to memorialize me legislative
- body In session to remove the legality ol'ten
per cent, and frame a law In such way as to
exclude every possible chance for a money
tendtr to exact any more than the old le^al
I seven per cent. That, is miani sufflr.it.
My sentiments as to public enterprises may
I be summed up in a nutshell. As follows, pay
just and honest debts, before any other consideration;
net even with the world and If, a
surplus cash should abound sulliciently to
1 make one feel independent or the ruinous
"time prices" then, let him utilize itforrail:
road or factory purposes, provided the ten
percent. Is null and void, unless, lie chooses
. to make a personal sacrifice for the public
. benefit. The factory advocates in and around
j Due West seem to be very sanguine of achiev'
in? success. The president has been elected
and site selected. Their movements Indicate
, that a cotton factory will soon be in operation
[ In our midst without a doubt. They seem to
' be acting as though a special donation has
" been made suillciently for the purpose and
they knew exactly where to put their hands
, on it. Succss to the enterprise.
: I would suggest the most feasible and pos<dI
bio plan would be for all factory parties ol the
county to to nblne their available means at a
; central point near a railroad and build a fue.
tory that will relleet honor upon the county:
Hid one, that she can boast of with pride.
Let ?250,000 be the minimum amount of capij
' tal to commence witli. My humble opinion I
' is, Mr. Editor, the public welfare resulls from !
1 Tf Ih/i 11.111
make every effort to ilvc at home, and guard
against, as much as possible, incurring debts
on "time prices" and not buy land with the
I expectation of paying tor it with borrowed
! money at ten per cent, and not try to live outside
of their Income and not try to keep pace
with fickle fashion, (goddess that rules the
' world in a measure) unless they are able to
1 "foot the bill" and not to indulge in luxuries
and non-essentials of life until they acquire
- a competency to enable them to enjoy them
I with a good conscience, I'll venture to assert
hard times will be numbered with the past
, and public prospects will abound more pien.

Grnve-Tlie Lie is Given ? A Knife
j Is Thrust in the Heart. ce
.Ieuby Tkhuy, sworn, says : y?
My brother Lewis and I were sitting In his 34
house figuring when Henry Tate came up and
asked Lewis out. .Said Lewis was a
liar. Lewis told him to leave the yard, and ,
wentout to him. Henry put his hand behind
him and Lewis cut him with a knife. Henry U11
was about three steps from the door when cut. "
I did not see a knife or hammer about Henry a '
Tate. Lewis did not say anything to Henry
except to get out of his yard. Henry told my
brother that he (Lewis) had told the boss he ifl
(Henry) was not going with the machinery
any more. Lewis tola him he had not told of
the boss any such thing. Henry then gave ..
him the lie. He paid this when he first 01
came up. I do not know who owns the hammer
found near the body. Henry when cut
turned away and said he was going to report 31)
him. My brother pulled his knife out and .
opened It before he left the house. Henry did DC
not go far before he fell. I did not go close p
enough to see how be fell?whether on his 3C
face or not. Dt
John Calhoun, sworn, says: _
Henry Tate went to Lewis Terry's house LU
this afternoon about 5 o'clock and asked him
out of his house. Said he wanted to see him
a minute. I was in Lewis' yard at the time. C<
I diet not see.anything In the hands of Henry
Tate. I saw Lewis draw his knlfea*hewas
coming out of the house. Henry told him
(Lewis) that he had told the bo?8 (B. Berry
AJlen) he Henry was not going back to the to
machinery any more. Lewis denied It and R
He'nrv called hlin a liar. I.pwIr did not
draw the knife until be was called a liar. Q(
Henry did not-nttempt to strike or cut Lewis.
He ran his hand Into his side pants pocket se
when Lewis stabbed him. Lewis approached
Henry when he came out of the house. He
(Heury) went about twenty or thirty steps af- (.f
ter being cut before he fell. I went up to him
and saw a hammer lying by his side. I did fei
not see any one else go aoout him. When
Henry called Lewis a ]iar Lewis said "do not
give me the He." If the hammer had a,
been In Henry's pocket I could have seen It.
I do not know whether Henry had a knife Id gu
his pocket or not. Henry and Lewis had a .
private talk In the yard before the trouble
began. th
Dr. A. J. Speer, sworn, says:
I examined the dead body of Henry Tate tu
with Dr 0. R. Horton and found a wound yA
inch wide between the fourth and fifth ribs lu
running obliquely about Inches deep, pen- hi
etratlng to the heart, two or three Inches to
the left of the sternum. In my opinion the U3
wound was sufficient to cause death. We
found no other wound.
Dr. 0. K. Horton*, 6worn, says: he
I corroborate the testimony of Dr. A. J.
Speer. Pr

vember A. D. 1887, by a wound made by a ujj
pocket knife In the hands of Lewis Terry. '
And so the jurors aforesaid, upon their oaths G<
