A NEW REGISTRATION -NEEDED.
The registration books of Clar
endon county are in a sadly mix
ed un condition, but no worse
than they are in any other co1lm
tv in the State. We think it
woul. be wise to make provision
for a . *registration throughout
the State. The day is coming,
and we do not think it far dis
tant until the books if allowed
to remain as they are, will give
us a good deal of trouble, espec
iallv so if in a close contested
election. and the electoral vote
of a State is needed t'. decide
the result. We had better get
ourselves entrenched wl-ie we
have the means to do it. and not
supinely go on in this rain
shackle. careless manner any
We begin to see a change com
ing over the people of this great
country, the time is approaching
when the party lash is no longer
feared- The people are becom
ing more and more independent.
Sectionalism is fast playing out
and material issues are taking
its olace. The man of the
North no longer casts his vote
by the waving of the blood shirt,
and the man of the South is no
longer afraid of the "nigger in
the woodpile." Live, wide-awake
issues will be the guiding force
in the future, and if South Caro
lina intends to preserve her po
litical entity, and maintain her
present supremacy of the white
man. the registration books
should be most carefully guar
ded. We do not believe there is
a county in the State that has
its reigistration books intact, and
therefore, it behooves the com
ing session of the legislature to
enact a new registration law.

matters to come up before it will

duties, and ever courteous and
obliging. We sincerely hope
she will have no opposition, but
in this day and time merit does
not always prove a means to
ward off opposition, and it will
not surprise us if sey~eral excel

LaBorde should be re-elected,

There is a great clamor all
over this State for the repeal of
the lien law, and we would not
be surorised if this clamor re
sults ini repealing the lien law,
but will that be what the people
want?~ Section 3005 provides
for a mortgage of crops being
valid for tile year in which it is
given. Section 3059 provides a
lien for advances. The great
cry is to repeal section 3059, but
we cannot see if there is a cause
for the abolishment of the lien
system why it is, there is objec
tion to repealing section 3003,
and all statutes relating to per
mitting a credit on crops. If the
sentiment against the lien law,
or in other words, if the people
really believe that all of their
woes can be attributed to our
present system of ea. y credit,
then away with all legislation
which makes credit so easy that
any man can procure it. It is
our honest judgment that the
repeal of section 3059 will prove
to be, a humbug, and not what
the people want, and too. if all
avenues of easy credit are cut off
a majority of tnose ur-ging it will
realize their mistake. These peos

Col. Brailsford Tells of the Heroism of
Capt. Richard M. Skinner.
PANOLA, S. C., Dec. 2. 1907.
MR. EDITOR: I noticed in the
last issue of THE MANNING
TDIES a card from Mr. Ben
Broadway in reference to the
unmarked grave of that heroic
young officer, Capt. Richard M.
Skinner, who laid down his life
at the battle of Samaria church
July, 1864. Mr. Broadway states
that about four years ago be at.
tempted to raise, by subscription,
a sum sufticient to place over
this neglected grave a suitable
monument. but met with poor
encouragement, raising aboul
ten dollars only, and all of tha;
not paid in. In. view of Claren
don's treatment of veterans, both
dead and alive, the response to
his appeal was very character
istie indeed. While nigh every
county in the State has erected
at their court houses towering
monuments to their dead heroes,
this county treats her chivalrous
dead with supreme indifference.
Every county in the State has a
chaptr of the Daughters of the
Confederacy, Clarendon has
none. That this should be so is
a damning and everlasting re
proach to her, for her sons of
fered their lives as freely and
died as heroically as any soldiers
that wore the gray.
My first sight of Capt. Skin
ner was on the battle-ground
of Pocotaligo as he led the old
Clarendon troop as first lieuten
ant (Capt. Nettles being absent)
to their position in line. This
was his first baptism of fire and
he so distinguished himself that
Gen. W. S. Walker immediately
promoted him to the command
of his troop. He was severely
wounded in the shoulder. This
battle was in May, 1862. The
enemy in their anxiety to de
stroy the Charleston and Sa
vannah road and thus cut one of
the main arteries feeding Lee's
army,. made another determined
attack upon us on the old battle
ground of Pocotaligo. approach
ing from another direction, but
was again defeated, and Capt.
Skinner, realizing the import
ance of the victory and what was
at issue, made a supr~eme effort
and was rewarded with success.
but v-as again severely wounded.
For a year I saw him daily in
the drills and parades while on
the coast, but when we reached
Virginia our commands were in
different regiments and I con.
not any longer witness his hero
ism in battle, but that he was a
hero to the last breath of his life
his supreme sacrifice, assures us.
That the grave of such a sol
dier should remain unmarked
and neglected is a shame un
speakable upon this people. My
friend Broadway says he hopes
to increase the liocl~e pittance in
hand to sixteen dollars and erect
a little tablet. I protest against
this after a wait of forty years.
I had rather circle his grave with
the laurel, the emblem of the
brave, and the weeping willow,
expressive of our grief.
As their old coramander I will
ask every veteran in Clarendon
to remit to Mr. Ben Broadway
at Paxville the little sum of
fifty cents, and although as poor
as any of you, I will send him
ten times that amount. Let us
reserve to ourselves the privil
ege of erecting this monument
to our brave and devoted com
rade. And when the time ar
rives, as it sur-ely will, let us all
meet there and unveil the token
of our admiration for him.
