THE MANNING TIMES.
S. A. NETTLES. Editor.
WEDNESDAY, February 18, 1891.
Our paper is chokeful of interesting
reading this week.
Gen. W". T. Sherman, the man who
burned Columbia and devastated the
South generally at the close of the,
war, died last Saturday in N\ew York.'
The United States Government has
paid him highest honors.
Ex-President Cleveland's letter on
free coinage has created considerable
unfavorable comment among his here
tofore staunchest supporters, and pre
dictions are now being made that the
letter will cost him the nomination for
Governor Tiflman has appointed as
commissioners of registration for the
city of Charleston George W. Wil
liams, Bernard O'Neill, and Jacob
Small. These three gentlemen are
bank presidents, and have the confi
dence of the entire community. This
appointment will have the effect of
knocking to pieces ringism if such a
thing ever existed in that city.

HOCUS POCUS BoOE-EEEPING.
The assets are swollen by the addition of
- unissued certificates of all sorts to the
amount of $26,953,132.00, which assets, how
ever, if assets at all, are in no sense worth
more than so much paper until they have
been issued for their face value of gold, sil
"ir or currency, as the case may be. Said
certificates are also included in the liabili
ties, thus perpetrating a double fraud upon
' the public by making the people believe (1)
~-that the treasury assets are greater than they
Sreally are, and (2) that the circulation of cer
iictsis larger than it is.
-rEE MONET voLaUME
~- Of the United States is less than $1,600,000,
0)0.00. But assuming it to be that much,
and counting the population at $84,000,000,
the per capita is only $25. Small as that per
e 5iai, it is much larger than the per
Oca.ftja in actual circulation; for if we add
together the sums locked up (1) in federal,
ztate, territorial, district, city and county
S treasuries; (2) in banks of all kinds; (3) in
a .nevolent institutions, railroad and other
oarpordte agencies; (4) in private hoards of
e very kind,-it will be found, no doubt,
that the per capita in active circulation is
h>Iardly as much as $10 apiece for our 64,000,
0 100 of inhabitants. Boarding is as much a
to4' haracteristic of man as spending is, or
Rapcuatinor commerce; and in estimating
necessary amount for any given people,
~-allowance must be made for the hoarding
SThe French are the only people whose sta
~'tistics on this subject furnish any reliable
facts for the instruction of the world; and
seperience, our own or others', is the only
Slamip by which to guide our feet. The his
p'.-tory of France proves (1) that a civilized
ind commercial people, with good facilities;
fr for intercourse and trade, will need from $75
Sto $100 per capita-j gold, i silver, }notes;
Sand'(2) that about one-half of the gold and
W '-lver wiflbe hoarded by people of small
rneans, ceaving in circulation nearly equal
aounts of bills and of gold and silver.
The French are, perhaps, the best-to-do
~.people on the face of the earth. How else1
'could thoy, after having been plundered by
the German armies, have paid that tribute
~'of a billion or more of dollars? How else
culd the peasants of France have taken the
%ecent lare French loan ? How does it hap
en that they are so well-to-do ? One potent
ECcause is that they have a monetary circula
rtlonequal to their needs. With a popula
tion not much more than two-thirds of ours,
-their money volume -even now, after having
Sb.'n so mercilessly robbed by Germany en
ly a few years ago-is from two to three
m'-tres as much as ours.
eccording to a recent report of the direc
tor of our mint, the following table shows
Sthe coined gold and silver of the world:
India & China $1,700,000,000
$ 900,000,000 France 700,000,000
- - 02,000,000 United States 482,000,000
550,000,000 England 100,000,000
5&0,000,000 Germany 145.000,000
S40,000,000 Austria 90,000,000
I035,000,000 All others 503,000,000
3,72,000,000 The World 3,800,000,000
Now where do we find the greatest ine
-quality of condition among the people ? the
-greatest poverty and the greatest wealth ? In
China, India, and the East generally, where
'the circulation is less than three dollars per
"'Itai; then in Austria where the per capita
is small; then in Germany; then in England;
hien in th-e United States; whilbt in France
the people are, in the main, better off than
anywhere else in the world, the -nass of the
people being better off than ,lse where-the
wealth of the country not concentrating in a
few hands as in the United States, England,
Girmany, Austria and elsewhere, where
money is scarce and dear whilst the people
* are numerous and poor, their products
aoundant and cheap.
A great deal of nonsense has been recently
uttered, ignorantly or knavishly, about silver
as being cheap money. What can be cheaper,
intrinsically, than notes, bills and checks ?
'Which has the greater intrinsic value, a $'2,
000,000 cheek, a $10,000 treasury note, a $100
g.ld certificate, a $1 silver certificate, or a
beggarly 10 center? Has any one of them
the least appreciable intrinsic money value ?
It would be impossible to estimate such in
trinsic value. How is it possible for silver
to become such cheap money ? Where in
history can an example be found, unless
when and where silver became as plentiful
as stones in the valley ? Wasn't gold once a
very cheap money in Spain ? Suppose dia
monds should become as plentiful as the
pbbles on the seashore; they would then
bcme very cheap. Money-gold, or silver,
or paper-becomes cheap when it is in great
excess of all the demands of the people
not otherwise. It is very deatr, when scarce;
and scarcity of money tends to reduce the
mass of the people to slaver y.'
The people of the United Stetes numioer
81,000,000. They need at least $75 per cap
Zita. That calls for a money volume of $4,
800,000,000, instead of our beggarly $1,600,
0(0,000 or less. Of that amount $1,600,000,
000 should be gold; $1,600,000,000 silver;
$1,600,000,000 notes. Should all our gold
anid silver product be coined as fast as it is
rained, it will take from 30 to 150 years to
coin enough gold and silver to meet the de
mands. Every year adds 2,000,000 to our
poatmin, ruwring an additional circula
tion of S15O0,000,000. -three ti
our silver product. What
Drag along with $10 or less
that the poor may become p
wealth of the country con
hands of a few billionaires?
the result of scant circulation,
ev, of a strictly gold coinage.
~ How is it that "Big-Man
Dollar-of-the-Daddlies" knows s
driving gold out of the countyi. In what
countries has it been done ? France is sur
rounded by the enemies of silver, and yet
France --according to the director of our
mint-has a silver circulation nearly as
great as that of gold. Eoesn't France claim
to have even more silver coin than gold ?
Moreover, Germany is now praying for
silver, for the double standard once more.
She sees the prosperity of France; and rec
ognizing that her own poverty is due to her
folly in demonetizing silver, she is now get
ting anxious to retrace her steps.
DEAR MONEY AND HIGH TAMJFF
Are the two twin abominations of this counu
try: they and sectional hostility are the
three legs of the tripod that upholds the
Republican party; and they are all uncon
stitutional. Gold and silver are constitu
tional money; low taxes, home rule, and
fraternity are constitutional. The Demo
cratic party is the party of the constitution;
is the party of hard money, gold and silver;
is the party of low taxes, home rule, and
fraternity. The Republican party is Euro
pean in politics, taxes, government, and
gold money; the Democrvtic party is Ameri
can in politics, taxes, home rule, and hard
money, white as well as yellow. The Repub
lican party would concentrate the wealth of
the country in the hands of a few and make
the mass of the people slaves; the Demo
cratic party wants to see every man a well
to-do freeman, living independently under
his own vine and fig-tree, each citizen
the equal of kings and queens, of emperors
But, if afraid that silver may, some time
before judgment day-certainly not during
the next thousand years-may run gold out
of the country, why, when the prospect is a
hundred or so years off, we can adopt the
goloid coinage of Alexander H. Stephens.
We might even adopt it now to save the "Fat
Men-Afraid-of- the- Dollar- of- the- Daddies,"
from dying of night-mare; for experiments
have proved that such coinage is perfectly
feasible. We would then have a coinage
composed of equal parts, in value, of gold
and silver; and Miss Goldy being then
indissolubly united by the bonds of mar
riage to Mr. American Silver, could not skip
over to Europe to wed some rotten-borough
duke, or pappy prince.
Stand by the Democratic party as the par
tv of the people, the only hope of the coun
try. JoHN M. PacHAin.sos.

Sufferer Speaks on the Question.
Enron MasiG Tnims:-I see a commu
nication in answer to Sufferer signed T. A.
Way. Is he one of our county commission
ers? If so, he complains of Sufferer, says
his communication is calculated to mislead
the public and sling mud at the county
cmmissioners, and yet listen to what he
s: "For really the causeway reported was
just in the condition sef forth by him. I am
ready to admit all that he says of Mt. Hope
swamp." He further says he never saw the
place before. I will here ask if he has not
been county commissioner for over two
years drawing his salary, a port:on of said
salary paid by those who hava to travel over
Mt. Hope swamp to reach Manning to pay
those taxes? If so has he not taken or se
ured money under false pretences, and
with others should be held accountable? In
office two years, and never saw the place
before ? Efficient officer! Please note what
the gentleman says, "I have always thought
it bad faith upon the part of any man to
ondemn a public officer for what Sufferer
or any other good citizen liable to road duty
ught to have done and helped to do them
elves." He further says: "Has Sufferer
been as willing to show his public spirit in
belping his overseer in fixing this part of
the road by hauling dirt, as he has shown
to the people by going into the newspaper
nd borrowing conclusions?"
I must confess the gentleman has more
:heek than any man I have ever known. He]
county commissioner, drawing his salary,
tad asking others to do his duties.
If the gen eman had giv c time
o the welf the ' - ns of the county
s he did round soliciting the suf
[rages of the dear gtod people, telling them
tow loosely things had beefcoma':tcd and
:he reforms he would make, Mt. Hope and
dl other swamps would have been macada
nized road ways.
Now, the whole township is ordered out
: work on ?it. Hope, not only the hands
hat belong to this road, but those who havec
)ther roads to keep up. Justice in a nutc
~hel! The gentleman says he has appoint-a
d an overseer and ordered him to put the
auseway in good condition, and if it is not
lone it is no fault of the county commis
oners. That is something new. I have
d.vays been taught to believe that the coun
:y commissioners had the power given themt
force those liable to do road duty.
See what the gentleman again says, "I
wfully fear Sufferer belongs to this class
vho never are willing to do road duty. 0th
rs are lead to follow his example. This
nust be the logical conclusion, for many
:omplain just as he does who never do onet
;ngle thing for the public roads." Has the
gentleman ever done more than the law re
luired of him ? If so let him speak out.
If Mt. Hope is made passable I shalihave I
othing more to say about the matter.
But, Mr. Editor, if I have not already
aken up too much space, I would like to
ay Friend Tom my respects. He says for
o weeks he has been on the go, looking
dter county affairs, getting ready for tha~t
ugust body some people call the grand jti-r
'ors, who look into everybody's business ex-t
:ept their own. The jury commissionerr
nust be remarkably wise to draw that classs
f jurors and not get a single man who at-t
ends to his own business. I fear Friend 2
L'om is scared.
He tells of a delightful trip from Man
iing to Brewington, and of spending thei
iight at Friend Johnson's, which remindse
yim so much of home. I would like to ask
f he reminded Friend J. that his pay wasi -]
3 per day and 10c. mileage? Guess not.
Next day he arrived at Foreston. He don't

Tom says, "From St. Marks ch'irch to

family is herewith presented for ap
proval. It may not be striking, but,
like many things small and plain, it is
of intrinsic worth, and if given a
chance will surely win its way. It is
a pillow cushion for carriage or rail
way use; it is usually ten by twelve
inches, or twelve by fourteen; it is
filled with down and covered with
material to match that with which the
owner's carriage is upholstered, with
black velvet or with smooth soft wool
goods of any kind. The -outside is
fitted smootbly over the inner pillow
cover and seamed together at the
sides; the over-lapping pointed flap is
tacked down and a small flat button is
added which helps to give it the ap
pearance of a bag, but it is only a
barmless deception (though the flap
might admit of a pocket if one cared
to risk anything in one so likely to be
tossed about and "sat upon"); the
edges are finished with a neat but in
conspicuous braided cord; for a short
distance along the middle of the upper
edge the cord is left unattached, a
loop or carrying-strap being thus pro
luced. Soft, pluap, and light, noth
