Now Countios.
When tho extra session proposed, among other
things, to pass a joint resolution to chango tho
oonstitution so os to reduce tho prescribed aroa
of counties, wc opposed it, alleging the counties
wero small enough and (bat such a mensuro
Would bc another Bourcc of division. We arc
glad to say our tntlro delegation opposed thc
measure, and sorry to say our belief has been
Tori?cd. It would havo been belter cither to
havo postponed (ho measure, or better still lo
havo let caoh claim stand on i(s own merits.
There moy bo counties which ave too largo and
should bo divided, bul this could have been
dono by a sp?cial measure.
Wo seo from our exchanges thal new counties
oro projeolcd already in various sections.
Seneca City wants a court house; BO docs Pon
<dlclou; then ono is proposed nt Ninety Six; ono
in upper Greenville mid nt various other points
in tho Slolo. It will bo readily seon that thc
making of new counties will incrense slightly
lue Stale expenses aud largely thc county ex
penses, because llie expensive county moohincry
must bo kopi up in all of Hiern. Thc present
shape of the counties lb such in many instances
that thc divisions will givo no additional con
venience lo tho people In most instances the
new counties will bo long slipes, leaving most
of (ho people equally remote from cither court
house. Tn ko tito proposed court house nt
Seneca and if carried ibo upper part of tho
oounty would bo ns remoto ns ever, while by
running thc linons proposed in the Journal the
lower part would he in two or three miles at
some points aud ns remoto ns over nt oilier
points. Tho upper county would not ht nblo to
support a government and build its bridges.
At present wc havo about 035 square miles and
a population of nboul 10,000, ono half or more
of whom reside below I he proposed linc. Nearly
or quite three fourths of the properly lies below
tho linc, and wlien our wholo area barely gives
ti support lo public officers how could they livo
if tho counlics were reduced? Wo do not write
in opposition to Seucca or Pendleton or to our
own interest, for ono half or more of our pro
perty lies hclovr Hie lino. Wo write in opposi
tion to thc principle on Ibo ground that it will
reduce thc pay oed consequently thc competency
of officers in nil small poor counties without
Adding to tho convenience of persons in attend
ing oourt when necessary. Besides, wc do not
know thc reason, but still it has always been (ho
foot (hat lands in (bis Slate have commanded
higher prices than in tho great Empire Nt alo of
Georgia where small counties exist. Tho lands
in Georgia oro ns rich, or wo think richer, and
yet cross Tugaloo River and they havo iu tho
joist been held lower.
Our people lived without complaint forty years
with Oconeo and Piokens ns ono county and
really people so seldom have to attend court (hat
tho inconvenience was smalt. A person by an
carly start con now go from tho roniolcst part of
this county and attend lo business and return
.ho sarao day. Will it pay thou to divido and
(soresso expanses? Evon for a court bouso at
. Pendleton wo would bo unwilling to givo up
.ny part of this county, UDICBS it bo tho small neck
below Soncoa Kiter, for all (ho lowor part of the
oounty con oomo to Walhalla by a short ride and
by rail.
If (ho old syslcm of defraying county ex
penses wero rcslorcd wo would havo but little
objection to new oounlles. Our renders will
remember (hat jurors, witnesses, public officers,
freo schools and all county expenses, except
roads and bridges, publio buildings and support
of paupers, wero formerly paid by Hie ?tato and
a general tax for that purpose was leviod and
went into tho Slate treasury where it was dis
bursed, whilo now every county bears nil its
expenses. Our readers also know that now our
oounty taxes oro higher than tho Stnto (axes
and (hat Oconeo and Pickcns hnvo been rarely
able lo get along without Sn annual extra levy.
The reason is tho largo bridgo expenses in thc
upper counlics, ffh?rs we havo swift mountain
streams with extensive waler sheds.
Let us seo thc fruit of culling oil' tho lower
part of Oooneoby running a lino according to
tho old stock fenoo and by extending it so ns to
run nonr lo or above West Union, so ns to
straighten tho linc. Our wholo county assess
ment amounts lo $1,89G,G07, and of this sum
$1,201,000 lies below thc slock fence, leaving
fGul$G85,G07 abovo (hal line. It will be nt once
seen (lint nearly two thirds in value of Ibo pro
perly, of tho county is below thc Block fence.
U'Jio population ns estimated stands 0,204 below
tho proposed lino and 7,031 above, leaving (ho
upper, part a less number than required by tho
proposed amendment. Suroly then it would not
do to take tho elook fonoc, nor could it bo done
An tho way proposed.
Another fruit of a new county means an in
tercase of officers, willoh is unnecessary, mid if
PO, unwire, for while a proper number ol
efficient offloers to secure a full administration
of tho law?'ia-necessary, whenever thc number
goes beyond till? tho egcess is engaged in un
productive industry. Money spent for unneces
sary officers la money Imroed- up on. ovory
jUi.oory of govcrnmeoU
Wo throw out those suggestions as appltoabh
to new counties anywhere in tho ?State, but ar?
perfcotiy willing for tho people to doolde au<]
abide by it. ODO thing wo do wish that Um
question bo left out of tho present campaign,
Wo havo enough divisions already and to drag
this mensuro into the canvass would increase
them to tho benefit of no ono.
A Word to tho Democracy.
Tho party of tho Demoornoy labors at
present under many disadvantages, not tho
least of which is tho fooling of security un?
dor which they labor. Torn by dissensions
upon different subjects, without propor or
ganization and rolying upon past success, wo
do not seo that unity and determination to
win which in tho past has oommnndod soc
coss. Whoro thoro is a will there is a way,
but that way and will must fully appreciate
tho difficulties ahead and proparo to meet
them. Tho foot is, if success wcro assured
wo should work as if tho result was uncer
tain. Wo oannot got too largo a majority,
whilo wo should not forgot that a minority of
ono would bo fatal in tho . highest dogroo to
good government. Tho party represents in
South Carolina the oaueo of tho pooplo and
all tho pooplo hold dearest. Therefore let US
all bo up and doing, practicing tho ndago,
whatever our hands (ind to do, do it with all
our might. Wc cannot bc too zealous in a
good cause, provided our /.cal bo practiced
within tho bounds of tho law*
Tho timo until Ibo election is short and
jot it embraces much in a political point of
viow. Tho intorestfl of education, of morality,
of roligion, d'social and material prosperity,
aro embraced within it. Could thoro
bo any higher motivo to exertion than wo
now have? If not, remember that after tho
election is ovor tho opportunity will bo past.
Work, then, now whilo it is day, for tho
night cometh when no mun cnn work. It
will then bo useless to repino or complain,
for our defeat, if it como, will bo from our
own lukewarmness. Publie meetings and
public discussions accomplish much, but out
side of these ibero is a work for every mon
in tho party, for (hero is no man but can
exert an influence for good or evil. If no
effort bo made by individuals their infl-ioneo
is against us from their very want of activity.
In tho religious world not a few havo been
converted to Christ by |somo simple appeal
or expression of a child, who havo fit for
yenrs under tho droppings of tho sanctuary
and listened unmoved to tho most eloquent
appeals from tho pulpit. Wo ronda short
timo ago of a confirmed infidel who was
approached by a child with tho question,
'.Why don't you lovo Jesus-?" which worked
his reformation. Ho stated tlint his letters
rend in theso words, his thoughts nt his ellice
and on tho streets echoed them and his
dreams brought them to his mind, until for
tho take of penco he examined God's word
nnd became a Christian Tho sumo is (ruo in
tho political world. Many will not read
newspapers, nor attend public meetings, who
can emly bo reached and might bo net right
by some simple expression of an uneducated
neighbor or friend. To work to this end for
a few weeks can do no harm and may do
good. It costs nothing und may profit a
great deal.
Remember wc do not write in n spirit of
fear of defeat, for wo believe our success is
assured. Wo write to make it doubly suro
by every good citizen exerting Iiis influenco
for a causo representing tho integrity and
intelligence of tho State If nothing clso
can determino a man, or if bc bo ignorant of
tho true interests of thc Slato and which
party will best represent thom, or if ho
morely doubt how to volo in a party sonso,
let him weigh tho parties by tho men com
posing them and concludo accordingly. If
he find tho Dcmoorncy to cmbruco tho lead
ing men of tho Suite, who arc identified with
it by birth and properly, and that they aro
tho most intelligent and honest, lot him sup'
port its nominees. Who will deny but thc
Democratic party in South Carolina is com
posed of that class of mon fnr more than
either thc Republicans or Grccnbnckers? In
foot does it not embrace almost all our best
citizens? Wo would bo v. ?liing lo stand or fall
upon (ho decision of this question by any fair
minded man. Let us all then in season and out
of season, in public and private, ns individuals
and U9 a body, put our shoulders to tho wheel
and givo a Democratic majority in Oconcc
which will forever wipo out all future oppo
Our Common Schools.
Tho resignation of General Copers of tho
nomination of tho Democratic Convention ns
Superintendent of Education devolves on tho
Stato Executive Committee an important
duty. No offico on tho ticket is of grenier
importance to itho highest interests of tho
Stato, ns it concerns thc causo o? education,
which all citizens feel a deep interest in and
ono which nearly concerns religion and
general intelligence Tho office lins bcon put
in good condition by its former occupant,
Col. Thompson, and should bo so kept. Re
sides, (ho education of tho masses is essential
to tho preservation of free institutions and is
tho only thing promotive of that end. The
Slato has, since 187G, mndo rapid strides on
this lino and is devoloping greater fooling to
further advance this cause To secure this
much will depond on tho successor on tho
ticket ns well as to win success.
A good educational system well managed
is of moro importance than a good Govornor
and requires moro lober and experienco. If
wo could so diffuse education ns to moko our
people, while and black, a ronding people it
would do away with all this cnmpiiigning, ns
tho people would rend and form correct con
clusions and not on them. It would also
purify and elcvato tho press, as tho people
would demand for themselves and children
an.elevated and progressive literature
Wo hardly think (lint ovor ono third thc
voting population of this or any othor county
aro renders of newspapers, In such a condi
tion of society how cnn Ibo minds of thc
pooplo bo instructed? And without instruo
' lion how cnn they bo convinced as to tho bes
; pinn of government? It loaves tho m?sset
without a propor knowledge of tho nature o
government, except such ns limy gather fron"
contact with a fow and from stirring nddrossoi

Thoso soon pass away and prejudice or pas<

All history shows that no pooplo has 01

Thompsou, in his ndmirnblo spoooh. pointed

At ll o'clock tho mooting was called tc

oold and sore throat, mndo a most ad
mirable speech, cont fasting our present condi

and taking a hopeful view of tho educational
problem ol tho timon. Cul. Thompson made
a highly favorable impression. As tim

MOUNTAIN HOME, Soptembur?, 1882.
1 Editors oj" thc Keoxcee Courier:
I nulioo an oditorial article in tho Seneca
Journal of last wook with a proposition uudor
tho proposed joint resolution by tho Oonoral
Assembly nmouding tho constitution, curv
ing ont u new county, as wild us it is vis
Tho writer of this article must havo boon
suffering under u montai halucination, which
young mon sometimos reooivo from an ovor
dose of lawn parties. I cnn attributo this
article abovo rcforrcd to to no other cause
than thin, for 1 know that tho writer, an
esteemed friend of mino, is above this selfish
motivo which perhaps might prompt others;
for instance, I know that neither tho desire
to mnko Seneca a groat "eoa port town,"
bringing tho patronage which usually arrives
to a journal thus located, nor tho doelro
to bo tho leader in tho formation of another
court house ring, (whon rumor says that tho
oounty is too much cussed with that articlo
now) could havo prompted thut generous na
ture, which has always exhibited itself above
such selfishness, to writo such nn article
I suspect that tho court houso upon which
tho writer has had his affection placed is not
to bo that whore law is to bo enforced by Ibo
power of judges, etc., but has been one whero
thc writer has been influenced by thc gent?o
cords of love, wiih only one pleader, without a
jury, and only one judgo of his faith and that
is a female. Such editorial on n gravo subject
could have, been prompted only by such en
tangling alliances.
This comet, which my friond lins drawn
across tho political horizon of Oconco is a
bubble or an air castlo which only lins
to bc pricked to BIIOW to tho people of Oconco
its utter folly.
Tho gravest subject which our people havo
to consider is taxation. With a county cqunl
in nizc to tho present county of Oconco, with
its spnrsc population and comparative pov
erty, it requires a taxation of 3 mills on tho
dollar on all tho property lo carry on thc
government. This taxation amounts to about
$7,000. If a new county ist) bo chiseled
out and a larger portion of tho territory to bo
taken from tho county, (hen tho taxation
instead of being $7,000 will bo $14,000,
because tho (arno people, having to support
only one government ns now, would havo to
support two witli tho additional expenso to
tho new county of having to build a court
houso, jail and poor houso farm, at a cost of
not loss than $10.000.
Small counties not only thus entail a larger
expenso for their government, but they arc
objectionable for t^o vornl oilier reasons. In
thc legislative council of tho State experience
dem?nstrales that they ure without that, in
flucnee which always at lends largo represen ta -
lion and wealth. If the course of legislation is
observed it will be seen that such counties
ns Charleston, Edgcliold, Richland, Anderson
and Greenville, whero (hoy have large repre
sentation and great wealth, direct and control
legislation to a great extent,
Thcro is only ono other way by which
small countios can have n prevailing voice in
legisla'i vc council und that is by keeping
trained, skilled and experienced mon to
represent them in tho Legislature. Tho
frequency with which tho legislators from
small counties, cither from onprieo or love of
change, ure changed, prevents their training
and thcrch.ro such counties aro generally
without influence in thc Legislature.
Thc proposition therefore to divido a small
and floor oounty in two still smaller counties
is an absurdity which lt is hoped the tax
payers ofOconeo County will noiihcr consider
nor act upon.
In addition to the abovo considerations smnll
counties usually fall under family influence
which keep down and restrain tho develop
ment of talent, which perhaps may bo willi?
I out tho pale of tho family circle. Some peo
ple in ii county ns large as Oonoo, with 035
1 squaro miles, now ndvanco ibo argument that
I its government is falling into tho hands of
families and il this argument is good now,
how would it bo when divided?
Oilier rearons as serious as those might ho
giren against this absurdity, but I do not
like to trosspass further on your space,
knowing that tho attention of our people has
only to bo directed to this matter for them to
put their solemn veto upon such a ridiculous
mid preposterous idea ns that contained in
thc proposition to divido our county.
