THE MANNIMG TIMES
~~~ai~ag93. C% LOUIS APPELT, Editor. Wednesday, January 9, 1895. We return thanks to Senator But ler and Congressman McLaurin for valuable public documents. South Carolina will be represented at the Atlanta exposition. Governor Evans has already appointed the del egates without regard to factional politics. The Sumter Freeman has given up its semi-weekly addition, and is now edited solely by Col. J. J. Dargan, who is a very strong writer, bnt he will get wrong in his arguments and takes great delight in "eating taters on a pine bark." President Cleveland and Senator D. B. Hill have at last shaken hands and are now friends again. Senator Hill dined with the President last Thursday night. If all the rest of the Democratic leaders would come together the Democratic party might recover its recent losses. The Governor is going to reduce the force of dispensary constables and give the cities and towns an opportunity to show their faith by their works. If they enforce the dis pensary law faithfully, they will not have the metropolitan police act thrust upon them, but if they under take any sham business Governor Evans will pounce down upon them. Governor Evans does not approve of the act of the Legislature which does away with the publication of the treasurers' reports. He takes u practical view of the matter, and be lieves that the people should know how their money has been expended. Without the publication of these re ports-thousands of dollars would be disbursed and the people could nev er know what became of the money, and often the disbursing officer would be unjustly censured. Some of the little weekly newspa pers are making themselves redicu lous in their effortU to criticize Con gressman McLaurin's speech against the Carlisle bill now before Congress. Nevertheless, the country at large can find so much food for thought in the speech that Congressman McLaurin is constantly receiving letters from same of the brainiest men in the c~untry complimenting him on his speech and the position he assumes on financial legislation. Congress man McLaurin is one representative that does his own thinking, and the snarling of the little newspaper fices has about as much effect on him as e'ater has on a duck's back. It seems that there was some con fusion in the appointment of super visor of registration for this county. Governor Tillman appointed the present incumbent while the Senate ~was not in session, and when that body assembled last month they con firmed the appointment. Our dele gation, however, recommended Mr. G. T. Worsham, of Salem, for the position, and of course expected Mr. Worsham to be commissioned but as Mr. Holliday's commission is good for two years there can be no change in the office until Mr. Holliday's time empires. Had the Senate not con firmed Governor Tillman's appoint ment, Governor Evans would have given the'place to Mr. Worsham on the recommendation of the delega tion. Mr. Worsham was in town last Saturday and while not at all sore about the matter he feels that he has not been treated right. A peti tion frorp this place was sent to the governor asking that Mr. Holliday be allo'wed to serve out his present term, and some that signed that petition signed it under the impression that the term expired this coming March, but this is a mistake, the term .doe's not expire until March 1896. The Republican party in this State propose making themselves felt in the coming contest for delegates to the constitutional Convention. Already a call has been made to its followers and an appeal to the colored preach ers to urge the organization of the Republican forces. This demonstra tion means a great deal and it be hooves the white men of the State to counsel in wisdom. Let us get together, in order that we may move in solid phalanx against an element who are being aided by those that have not the welfare of the State at heart. Recent events have proven that there is now a movement on foot to disrupt white man's supremacy in our State, and if we do not come to an understanding among ourselves there is great danger of having our constitutional convention controlled by the enemies of Democracy. Without a doubt there are white men in South Corolina ready and willing to join in with the enemy if there is the slightest prospect of get ting control of the State Govern ment. Of course these men depend almost entirely on the disaffected of their own race with the hope of be ing sided by the colored vote. Every white voter in the county should see that he is registered and when the time comes for electing delegates select the best men in the county for the place. THE NEw YEAR Finds Hood's Sarsaparilla leading every thing in the way of medicine in three im portant particulars, namely: Hood's Sar stpadtilla has 1. The largest sale in the world. It ac cznplisl'es 2. The greatest cures in the world. It has 3. The largest Laboratory in the world. What more can be said ? Hood's &arsa parilla has merit; is peculiar to itself, and mnost of all, Sarsaparilla cures. If you are McLaurin's Voice Reaches Colorado. The Rocky Mountain News pub lished at Denver, Colorado, contains the following special: Special to The News. Washington, Dec. 21.-It was whispered about in the house in a very confidential way this morning that a sensation was likely to occur to-day in the debate on the currency bill. Inquiry developed the fact that Congressman McLaurin (Dem.) of South Carolina has determined to speak as soon as he could obtain the floor and violently attack the Car lisle bill. COULD NOT DE SWAYED. The effort was ineffectually made to induce Mr. McLaurin to forego his threatened assault upon the bill, but he did not secure recognition until about 4 o'clock this afternoon, after General Sickles (Dem.) of New York had spoken in opposition to certain features of the measure, which he claimed were un-Democratic and un less changed would compel him to vote against it. By this time the membership had dwindled down to about seventy, but they gathered about the young South Carolinian, who in a spirited, but no less elo quent speech, proceeded to arraign the administration and those of his Democratic colleagues who support ed the Carlisle bill for abandoning the ancient landmarks of their party on financial questions, repudiating the teachings of Hamilton, Jefferson, and Jackson, and surrendering their principles to the dominations of the banks. DENOUNCES THE ADMINISTRATION. Mr. McLaurin denounces in vigo rous terms the policy of the Presi dent and Secretary Carlisle in issu ing bonds in times of peace, ostensi bly to maintain the gold reserve, but in reality to avoid the use of silver and further discredit it, when the law distinctly provided for the re demption of its obligation in coin, which meant both gold and silver. The entire bill, he charged, was in the interests of the banks, in which it was proposed to invest the tyrannical and sole power of furnishing the currency of the country to the ex clusion of the government. He de clared he would not follow his party into the support of any such measure. He asserted that the peeple of the South favored free coinage of silver and that sooner or later this free coinage must come. He would nev er vote for any proposition to sur render the circulating medium to the banks which would operate to in crease the mortgage of the poor debtor and force the planters of the South to take 4 cents a pound for their cotton and the Western farmers but 80 cents per bushel for their wheat. VERY SIGNIFICANT. This break in the ranks of the Southern members, who were sup posed to be attracted by the State bank scheme of the Carlisle bill, is regarded as very significent. The amendments or substitute reported to-day will not attract support froin those who favor the continuance of the existing national banking system and may alienate those who desire State bank currency. There is still some talk of a caucus of the Demo cratic members upon the bill, but the differences of opinion already devel oped in the debate are so wide that a caucus agreement, at least at the present juncture, seems impossible. Nevertheless an effort will be made to harmonize upon some plan, but the undercurrent in favor of silver legis lation interposes an almost unsur mountable barrier, although it is generally conceded that such legisla tion cannot obtain over a presiden tial veto. The best anodyne and expectorant for' the cure of colds, coughs, and all throat, lung, and bronehial troubles, is undoubted ly, Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, the only specific for colds and coughs admitted on exhibi tion at the Chicago World's Fair. K. of' P. Installation and Banquet. The installation of the officers of Damon Lodge, K. o? P., for the ensuing term took place in Pythian hall last Thursday nitht. District Deputy Grand Chancellor H. Frank Wilson, of Sumter, was present, and after duly installing the officers mentioned last week as having been elected, he ex emplified the unwritten work of the order for the benefit of the members. After the installation, the members repaired to the Central hotel, to partake of the annual banquet, which is considered the crown ing enjoyment of the season by the Knights of Damon Lodge. Large Norfork oyters were served fried, stewed. and raw, in abundance, accompanied with other con diments usually partaken of, on such oc casions. The Clarendon Medical Associa tion had been invited to join the Knights in the banquet, and after all the members and their guests had partatken to their en tire satisfaction, and perhaps later discona' fiture, cigars were handed around and the true merriment began. Mr. E. C. Horton, of the committee nrrangements, acted as master of bcerenmonies. He turned on the gas by introducing Capt. WV. C. Davis who happily extended a warm welcome to the brthern and their guests. Responding to the t oast, "Pythiani Knighthood," Mr. Joseph Sprots, Jr., pre sented in an impressive way the duties of Knights and the obligations that the pub lic owe to Pythian Knighthood. Major Wilson, the special guest (of the occasion, was then called upon and in his usual hap. pyand eloquent manner completely cap tuied every one present and held them enraptured for about fifteen minutes. The toast "'woman", offered on all such occasions when man has his stomach full and is supposed to be in the best of humor was responded to by Mr. J. H. Lesesne who although a modest bachelor can say nice things of the women and although rather full, he put up a good appeal for the ladies. Mr. W. C. Chandler told the champion one of the season on the "weath er" (referring to the recent cold snap,) but when the party caught on to his racket, he turned it off in . a joke. Dr. Geiger and Mr. R1. B. Loryea, although both exceed ingly timid young men, became inspired when it come to upholding the dignity of the " Medical profession." and "Pharmacy" and were not found wanting in words or brass to respond toitheir respective toasts. Themembers of the Medical Association were then given a turn, but Dr. Fladger, the first member called upon, should not have taken up so much time in delivering his speech boomiing Summnerton and her starch actory. Th'le addresses of Drs. BJriggs and Wilsen were short, as they did not wish to make lengthy speeches, but none surpassed the efferts of Dr. Paul Sally, who though manifesting some labor, pulled throush all right. Dr. Brown spoke in behalf of the Association, and tendered thanks to the Knights for the courtesies or the evening. The Pulpit" was appropriately respon ded to by Rev. S. A. Nettles, and the last toast of the evening. "our honored Hostess," was reserved for Capt. W. C. Davis whose abilities are well known, and who spoke in high praise of the proprietress of "Tfhe Central' and the fair managers. The hour of one had then about arrived, and as the Knights dispersed and eaich one went his way to battle with the world, he at least felt like there was "one more soul made POPE AS A REPUBLICAN. Championl Political Acrobat. While the political situation in South Carolina appears to be calm, there is much under the surface to interest and even alarm the Demo crats. On the heels of the circular issured by Republican leaders calling for thorough organization of the party in this State to try to elect delegates to the corstitutional convention comes the story that Dr. Sampson Pope is dickering with the national Republicans to join them, ostensibly for the purpose of leading the Repub lican fight in South Carolina in 1896, but more likely for the purpose of leading the fight against the conven tion this year. At the same time is the statement that the national Republicans propose to enter the South two years from now in a dif ferent way from the past and that they will endeavor to reconstruct the party with decent white men. -1Oi THE CONSERVATIVES. One of the Columbia Republicans who signed the call for the Repub lican convention, published in The Register yesterday, has stated that while he does not know what his party will do be is reasonably satis fied that it will support Conservative delegates to the constitutional con vention if they are put out in the various counties. If the Conserva tives do not put out tickets then the Republicans will put them out. The man said he felt sure that the Repub licans could carry a number of counties, but if they could secure the aid of the Conservatives there was no telling how many they could car ry. REPUBLICAN BUODLE. It has already been intimated that the national Republican committee will send money to this State this year to try to prevent the Demo crats getting control of the constitu tional convention. If Dr. Pope and other Independents should join in the fight against the white men, and should be aided by an abundance of money, there is no predicting what would happen in the State. The Washington correspondent of the Piedmont Headlight has this to say of Dr. Pope: "I have a little item of South Caro lina news for you. I have it from good authority that old Samps. Pope is making overtures to join the Re publican party, and will doubtless become their leader in your State at the next campaign. Samps. is posing as not only an astute politician, but as a staunch believer in the doc trines of the Republican party, and promises to carry the Palmetto State into their column in 1896, if he is given his own way and plenty o! boodle. A prominent Republican to-day asked me what kind of a man was Dr. Sampson Pope? I told him that the Doctor was a cross between a portable lunatic assylum and a second class crank, and I very much doubted if he had influence enough in his State to control his own vote. But wouldn't it be amusing to see this galvanized anti idol presiding over a negro Repulican meeting?" THE REPUBLeAN SCHDIE. The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun gives the follow ing as the Republican scheme in the South in the future: "It is regarded as more than prob able that tne next Republican nomi nee for Vice President will be taken from the South. The returns of the last election have given renewed hope to the Republican leaders of making serious inroads upon the Solid South. The policy of the party will be to foster whatever tendency exists in the South to cut away from the old Democratic alliances. To this end liberal appropriations for that section will be made by the next Republi can House, and a policy of concilia tion will be systematically pursued. There will be no meance of a force bill held out, but everything will he done which indicates a disposition to build up the material interests of the South. Republican leaders have come to the concluson that the South once more offers an inviting field for them. If they can only make a half dozen States in that section debat able ground, the prospects of the party for supremacy are immeasur ably improved. "After the bitter disappointment caused by the failure of the hopes and the apparently well-laid plans based upon the reconstruction legis lation, the South was by tacit consent given up to the Democrats. In all their bedrock calculations from 1880 down, the Republicans, while some times making nominal claims for tbe sake of effect, have really never taken the South into consideration. The history of last November has wrought a marvellious change. Next year, when the State elections rolls around, the Republicans will come up all over the South in compact and well-drilled organization. Then candidates will be selected with care, and the party platforms will be artfully and skill fully constructed for home consump tion. This is a matter which is en gaging the earnest and constant at tention here of the most trusted men at the head of Republican party af fairs. "Local Republicans in the South have long lamented their inability to secure a patient hearing or arouse any interest in their cause when they come to Washington. This was not suprising, for, as a rule, they have not been of the type to inspire re spect or confidence, and what they had to propose or suggest carried no insurance of substantial results. The change in the situation has wrought change in purpose and stimulated hope for the future. The South will be looked after as it never was be fore. The outlines of the improved plan of Republican campaign may be briefly summarized. Local ambi tions~ and local interests will be aroused, reputable men only will be sought for to put on the tickets, and efforts steadily directed to still and allay local priejudices and apprehen sions. "The Democrats of the South must be up and doing if they wish to re pair the severe injuries inflicted upon them this year. If the Republicans in the local elections next year in the ISouth can hold on to what they cap Itured this year, they will be happy. If they succeed in doing better, they will be jubilant. In either event, or sufficient home manure is made to take the place of bought manures production will be as much or more. Even if this manuring cost less, what guarantee is there that the price is going to stand? The only way to head off cotton is to quit it, and some farmers would rather die. As to what credit the farmers will be able to get in 1895? fhose who have unencumbered property and who will bind themselves tooth and toe nail so some cotton factor can get credit, at least have always gotten it. Those who can give papers on per sonal property and a lien on their crops will probably get credit. Those who can give no security are in a bad fix. In this latter condi tion are a great majority of the negro population and a great many white people. A ciop has to be planted and made or the world will starve. One great cause of the trouble is that the farm is starving for brains, not so much hog, cattle and sheep brains, but human brains. It is a lamentable fact that young men, those who are educated and capable of making the farm a success, leave and go into other business. Farming has been left to the weak, and we are reapiug the rescu. The New England Statee,on being taunted with the fact that their farms had deteriorated, replied that it was the case, but the New England brains had built the West. So it is with South Carolinians, who have sent out young men from the farm, till every profession is crowded, while the farm is crying aloud for its own. Beautiful faces are always features of Hood's Sarsaparilla Calendars, and they were never more charming than they are this season. Hood's Sarsaparilla Calandar for 1885 is heart shaped and is ornamented with representations of "Summer" and "Winter." A sweet little face which peeps out from a daixty cap, with the snow flakes falling all about, represents the season of ice and sno w, while the sunshine of summer lights up another face at the left. The de sign was made by one of the most gifted water color artists in the country and the work of the litho grapher is seemingly perfect. Hood's Calendar, as usual, presents all the desired information about the lunar changes and other astronomical events.

C. in any event, it has been determined to make a desperate and continuous struggle all along the line for South ern electoral votes in 1896. An im portant means undoubtedly for the accomplishment of this end will be the nomination of a Southern man for Vice President. The Southern horizon will be closely scanned for a Republican star of the first magni tude, and little, if any, doubt exists that he will be discovered. "It is not doubted he might be discovered in Maryland, where there are so many Republicans of the high est character and ability, but Mary land will probably be eliminated from the range of choice, as being too far North. It seems to be accepted al most by common consent that in the distinctively Southern States a Re publican of character and position is a rara avis. This, more or less, may havo been the case in the past. It is very doubtful whether the proposi tion is tenable now, or has been in recent periods. "It has long been contended by the shrewdest politicians of both parties that the enormous prepond erance of one party in the South would lessen inevitably with the diminishing significance of the race question. Whether so or not, Re publican policy will proceed on this line. No distrust is felt as to the right man being found, if, as is now believed, party interest demands him, when the moment for action arrives. It was affirmed with much confidence to-day that the names of eight or ten men could be mentioned, eash of whom would amply meet all the re quirements of the situation. More will come to the front in due time. These new moves on the political chessboard will add gathering in terest to the preliminaries as well as the active operations of the next Presidential campaign."-Columbia Register. The News and Courier's corres pondent from Summerton sends to that paper the following statement of the condition of the farmers in this county: Summerton, Clarendon County, December 31.-Special: Farmers wh4o were able to fertilize and work their crops as needed have made fair crops. The farmers who were not able to fertilize and cultivate properly have made very poor crops. Cotton, though suffering from both drought and rain storms, yielded fairly well. The farmers generally worked well and did their duty in the making of the crop. It might safely be said that the cotton crop brought about half what it did last year. Some far mers in setting their crop at plant ing time figured on cotton bringing six cents. Putting the shortage and low price together the value shrunk at least one-half. It does not take long to see in what condition this puts the farmer. Last year's balances are still unpaid and there is barely enough to cover expenses of this year, and in a great many instances not enough to do this. The cotton crop has gone to pay debts as far as it would. Could we find sale, at a priee other thanan.~i cidal, for corn and other produce, a great many could help themselves iti this way. The poorer class of far mers are being closed out, and settle their debts that way. As it is gen erally understood, when -a man is broken up, his debt is paid. *Really this class is better off thani the more responsible claas, as they are allowed to go on, and the balances grow big ger each year. It wvould not be un safe to say that we are in a worse fix than ever before. Last year was bad enough, but, taking all things into consideration, the situation :has has not improved. A great deal is being said about fine hogs in the pa pers. More attention was given this industry a bout here, and a great many hogs were killed. What is wanted is not a few isolated big hogs, but droves of medium-sized ones on everv farm. The condition of the merchants those who do a credit business-is already told in that of the farmer. They support each other and have fallen together. The lien merchants are in a bad fix. There is no use in heating about the bush. They drew in their business considerably last year, and now they are closing out all the negroes and a great many whites. They can find no sale for stock taken in, and soon the small amount of provisions taken in will be fed away, and then what will be done no one knows. On question ing the merchants as to their condi tion they are very despondent and anxiously await the new year. Sev eral merchants in this community who have made money out of the lien business have now lost it all and more. Those who worked for wages feel the oppression least. The negro ploughman made more money pro portionately than his employer, The clerks received their salaries while the merchant lost money. There ought to be a great amount of labor next year, as those the merchants are discharging will have to work some where. Some negroes say they are going to quit working for themselves and hire out. Now who is going to be able to hire them? Trade as usual brightened up as cotton began to open, and while cot ton picking lasted trade was good. As soon as this work grew light trade felt it, and as picking died out trade followed. This cause and effect has never been so marked before. It shows absolutely in what crop our whole interest and apparent welfare lies. There has been a larger acreage of oats planted than before, and the disposition of the farmers is to plant more grain of all kinds, if the price of cotton will only stay down till af ter planting time; but if it gees up a great many farmers cannot be trusted, but will continue our present cotton acreage. A good deal is being said about smaller quantities of commer cial fertilizers being used and more attention to be paid to home-made manure. If the volume of fertilizers is reduced it will cut down the pro duction some, for farmers cannot make enough home manures-at least a great many cannot. But this re duction will be only temporary, as farmers cannot afford to let their lands go down. This they will surely doa unle properly fertiied When FAD CALENDAR -~ For ... ~@ You Need It.
