DON'T WANT TWO PARTIES.
In the State of Alabama, the
negro element has been elimina
ted from the Republican party,
and the same will in all proba
bility, be done all over the South.
The national leaders realize the
impossibility of ever getting up
a respectable organization in
the South as long as the colored
element can be regarded, as fac
tors. We disagree with a great
many of the political thinkers
of both parties. In our opinion,
there is no room in the South
for two political parties, because
as long as the negro has the
right of ballot just so long will
he be an object of contention,
and bug-a-boo for unscruplous
politicians to fan prejudice with.
We would like to see the white
people of the South discuss is
sues in their primaries, and let
the majority rule regardless of
any dictation from national lead
ers; but to have two distinct
parties and fight for supremacy
in the general elections will not
do in the South. If we had
two separate parties, one or the
other would get the ear of the
national party in power, and it
would sooner or later result in
national interferance with our
political institutions. We do not
want to see any such condition,
but we do want to see the day
come when men can go out to a
white man's primary and vote
as his intelligence and his con
science dictates. As we are
now, politicians make up issues
for their own selfish purposes,
and being in control of the party
machinery, they rule it with an
iron hand. No set of people
-were ever more in the control of
politicians than are the people
of the South; past conditions is
responsible for this: but unless
the people take matters mnto
their own hands, the politicians
will continue to use the Devil
you don't vote for them. Our
political leaders are constantly
railing at the Republicans of the
North and West for permiting
themselves to be blindly led by
the politicians of their party,
and yet we of the South drink
in this rot, applaud, and repeat
it, as though our existance de
pended upon it. Then when we
stop to think, we ask ourselves
'how much better off are we?
We permitted ourselves to be
hoodwinked by professional
spell-binders and the conse
quence is that the people of the
South from a political view are
the most arrant cowards on
earth. They follow in the lead
of men they know are unfit for
leadership, morally and mental
ly, and yet will not make a bold
open fight to dislodge this ele
ment. They prefer to sink their
manhood and complain private
We should like to see a man
with ability and integrity come
forward and lead a fight for in
dependence within the Demo
cratic party; we believe such
an one would soon bring to his
standard a strength which
would surprise those now en
trenched behind the party's
machinery. Take the canvass of
Captain D. Clinch Heyward our
nominee for Governor, members
of his own faction had no idea
-he stood a ghost of a chance to
win, the politicians turned up
their noses in derision, but Hey
ward went on, met the people,
came into personal contact with
them, and when the political
professionals realize themselves
in danger it was too late. They
made heroic efforts to draw fac
tional lines, sent over the coun
try men to fan into flame old
time prejudice, at every court
house heelers went out whisper
ing into the ears of the voters
that Heyward was a Haskellite,
but all to no purpose, Heyward
won, because the people regard
ed him free from hyprocrisy
and political corruption. They
are getting tired of the ever
lasting dictation of political
bums, and all that is needed to
bring about a revolution in
South Carolina is, for men of
known character and ability to
step forward and lead the way.
Let them present themselves,
holding aloft a bananer inscribed
upon it INDEPENDENCE AND
PURITY, and to such a standard
will flock intelligence and pa
triotism. Then we can join is
sues in our primaries, and leave
it to the people to say which
side they approve. This is
what is needed in the South and
not two parties.

GET AFTER TAX-DODGERS.
Col. August Kohn in his cor
respondence to the News &
Courier, recommends to our
legislators the knotty problem
of tackling the tax question,
and we agree with him in part.
It would be profitable and states
manlike if our legislators would
devise a means to do away with
the necessity for borrowing &300
000 every year to run the State
government. The income to
the State is away beyond what
it used to be; the fees turned in
to the office of Secretary of
State, for charters are growing
larger every year. The reven
ues from the penitentiary and
State farms, the enormous turn
in from the dispensary; it strikes
us that with all of these sources
of income there would be a suf
ficient amount of money to not
only keep the State machinery
well greased, but a surplus to
go toward the bonded debt.
We see no reason for the de
ficiency for $300,000, there must
be bad management and extrava
gance somewhere. The State
government ran along very
smoothly in the eighty's and it
did not have the tremendous
revenues it has now; true we
did not have Clemson and Win
terop to absorb a part of the
revenue but deduct the appro
priations of these institutions
and then the question can be
asked, where does the State's
money go that it needs to borrow?
Colonel Kohn seems to think
the way out of the woods is to
raise the tax levy or the assess
ment. Here's where we do not
agree with him. The more
money raised the more extrava
gance, and the more the bad
management. The State al
lows the Treasurer to borrow
$300,000 and he borrows it; if
the State permitted the borrow
ing of a million dollars a way
would be found to utlize the lim
it. No, taxes are high enough,
the people who own little are
taxed heavily-they bear the
burden. What is needed is a
plan to make the wealthy pay
their just proportion of the taxes.
How many owners of stock in
corporations, bonds and money,
pay their honest share to the
government? The farmer with
his lands, implements, and stock
pays taxes on every thing he
has, but the merchant, the bank
er, and the speculator, return
and pay on not over 50 per cent.
If some legislator could devise a
scheme which would make this
tax-dodging class disgorge, he
would write himself famous on
the pages of the State's history.
Under 'our tax laws a man may
have one million dollars in cash
and the State would not get one
cent of taxes out of it, but on
the other hand, if a poor man
owns a milch cow to give nour
ishment to his half starved child,
the State demands a tax. This
is unjust, and a discrimination
in favor of the rich. Taxes are
plenty high; make the people
who have a plenty and are mak
ing more pay what they honest
ly owe and we will have a sur
plus in our treasury.

A COTTON SEED MEAL WAR LOOKED FOR.
We learn there is about to be
gin a lively war between the
cotton Oil mill syndicates, and
the indications are that those
who place their orders for meal
early may not get advantage of
the fight. That there is som
thing in the rumor is evident,
because the manufacturers are
doing all they can to get their
goods placed before the trouble
begins. It will be remembered
that heretofore they were very
reticent as to what meal would
sell at, until they got ready to
put it on the market, now they
are working a new scheme by
trying to make contracts in ad
vance. We are not familiar
with the situation at all, but
from appearances it strikes us
that those who make their meal
contracts now will not get the
benefit of the active competition
we look for. ~The combines will
have to do one or two things,
gt together and fix the price, or
fight each other. The question
then for the people to decide is
whether it will pay to wait and
see.- They have one advantage,
if they refuse to sell their seed
as they should, they can afford
to wait, because if the combines,
combine and force up the price
of meal, they will be indepen
dent of them by using the seed
instead of selling them. It
would in our opinion, be a God
send to the farmers of this coun
try were the combines to force
the price of meal out of their
reach: it would [)then compel
them to take some action to r-e
sist what we regard a curse to an
agricultural community. If the
sale of seed continues the rented
lands will become so depleted
that they will not rent for enough
to pay "for the investment. A
great many land owners are
hauling their seed back home,
but the teannts sel the man
who owns his land appreciates
the value of his seed, the man
who rents does not; it makes no
difference to him, he wants all
he can get off from the land,
and when it gets poor he can
move to some other place and
impoverish it. In this way the
lands will depreciate in value,
and the owners will be the suf
ferers. We therefore contend, as
a matter of self defense, our
land owners should put a stop
to the sale of seed from the
lands they rent. There are
some owner: of land now, who
stipulate in their rent agree
ments that the seed must be put
back into the ground and the re
sult is that the renters on these
places are prosperous, have
good credit, and make very de
sirable tenants. They pay their
debts, keep good stock, make
good crops, and merchants are
anxious to do business with

There is great need of two or more
well trained blood-hounds in each mag
istracy of the county. The local con
stable could keep the dogs. The pur
chase and keep of these beasts would
entail an expense to the taxpayers of
the county of about $750.00 the first
year, and about $100.00 per year there
after. But- the presence of these
sleuths in the county would save to the
people four times their cost and keep
each year in the protection of life and
property, court expenses, etc. There.
would be a decrease of 75 per cent in
crime. Full blooded dogs cost from
$25.00 to $50.00 for year old puppies
and trained dogs cost from $75.00 to
$150.00 each. They cannot be obtained
in this State. There is a kennel in
Lexington, Ky., where these hounds
can be purchased under guarantee.

A Cottontot's Complaint.
To the Editor of The News & Cour
er: In common with hundreds of co
tontots, whose fields are white for tb
harvest. I protest against the selfis
greed of those railroad corporatiot
that organize at this season annuall
big negro excursions to the variot
cities. These excursions each carr
over five hundred greatly needed coi
ton-pickers from our fields, whose It
bor is lost for three days: for they ar
so excited and enthusiastic over th
anticipated trip that the day previou
is consumed in discussing it, and plar
ning ways and means of getting to th
depot, and they straggle in the da
after about midday from the variou
stations-most of the men recoverin
from a debauch and the women fagge
There is nothing so demoralizing t
the negroes as these excursions, an
their own Bishops have denounoe,
them in the pulpit and press.
We would not debar our brothers i:
black from all reasonable enjoymer
and delight to see them at a circus
where we haul them free in large plar
tation wagons and give them the da
to attend; for they return the sam
evening in finest spirits, and for week
after, with their wonderful powers c
mimicry, sing the songs and tell th
jokes of the old clowns, to the deligh
of the entire field of cotton-pickers.
This is no local "kick." It voice
the indignation of every cotton plante
whose fields lay within five miles c
that excursion train as it swept throug:
the counties of Orangeburg, Claret
don, Sumter and Williamsburg on it
way to the city by the sea.
The negroes say there will be one t
Columbia in two weeks, with the sam
delightful results to us in the gather
ering of our crops.
What I would like to ask is why cat
not these excursions be postponed ur
til the time of- the State Fair, whic:
they would materially help, and th
crop be virtually gathered, and the
run several just before Christmas an
during that week to Charleston?
In view of the high freight we pa,
on hundreds of thousands of tons c
fertilizers, and equally high charge
on the eleven million bales which, ac
cording to the "bears," the said ferti
lizers have made, and the long haul c
all the meat and corn from the Westi
took to pay for its cultivation, it doe
seem it would be the true policy of th
railroads to allow its early harvest, an
not leave it a field, subject to equmnc
tial devastation and storms.
If the roads are going to. persist i
getting up junketing trips for our lr
borers during harvest, causing a los
of their services for three days conse
utively, they should have the cando
to tell us so in time to prevent our mali
ing arrangements to trouble them wit
so much fertilizers and cotton in futurE
