$0i ab iled all phases of the
matrrelating to our agrieul
s~re and our manufacturing. He
f<gave wholesome advice with re
~gard to those ingredients which
'o to malte up the soil food, the.
conservation of our lands. He
showed the fearful waste due to
-improvidence,. and how -this
-waste can be stopped with but~
-little expense-the cost being
mainly intelligence, as ignorance
was in a large measure is respon
'sible for our farmers being the
victimse of speculation.
He compared our soils and
clmate with- that of the great
grain sections of the United
Statest and claimed that we have
thnsa people who have grown
rihat adisadvantage all round,
tat we can raise as good or
even petter wheat and procure
a larger yield, that we can raise

hat one of the greatest waste,
>ur people are guilty of, is the
uying of canned goods when
heir children at odd moments
:an-put up these goods in much

ialf in the cost.- Mr. Watson did
iot fail to- express his disgust at
xaving to welcome the first ship
a reach Charleston through the
anama Canal laden with bay for
his stat-.-grass being brought
rom abroad at an exorbitant
est,when for the greater part of
rear our farnmers are sweating in
heir fields to destroy grass. He
aid tha~t it has been fully dem

untritious hay as ever came
r(>m the ranches of the great

onger. continue to pay tribute to
he west for our sustainance; let
~he pendulum swing the other
ray by giving more attention to
~omething else besides cotton.
le urged his hearers to be ciu
ious in the cotton planting oper
Ltions this year. especially- did
ie urge them not toj be deceived
>y the alluring-prices now being
>fered. He said that iu' his
>pinion, the prices of today are
tue to manipulation- and are
iot natural-supply and demand
igures but little in it, therefore
>e not deceived into committing
,he folly of going into debt to
)uy commercial fertilizers to
nake a bumper crop of cotton;
f, said the speaker, the south
nakes anothe r such, or even a
iormal crop of cotton this year,
w'hether the war ends or not it
mnlisbe a calamity.
Commissioner Watson's speech
v'as good as are alt of his
peeches. He knows what he
s talking about which counts
~or a whole lot: S. Oliver
)'Bryan, Esq., introduced the
;peaker in a very -happy and
Lppropriate manner.
The next speaker Hon. John
L1. McLaurin, was introduced by
Japtamn W. 0. Davis who spoke
>f the study made by Senator
MfcLaurin of the financial condi
~ions of this country and his in
erest in the warehouse ~propo

refore a Clarendon audience
again, that it was. Clarendon
which was largely responsible
for his having been sent to con
gress when this county was in
the Sixth District and he was
greatly attached to this county
because of this, and beeinse of
having warm personal friende
He realized that the hour was
getting late and that to go into
his subject fully would tire his
hearers' so he confined himself
to outlining the purpose of the
State warehouseingr scheme as
proposed by the General Ass am
Senator McLaurin went into
the discussion of the financial
situation, and recounted the dilfi
culties which hatd been overcome
recently by having cotton recog
nized as a basis of credit by the
government, and the large
financial institutions of the coun
try. He said that the views ex
pressed by Commissioner Wat
son cautioning the farmers not
to be deceived by the present
prices he endorsed in full, and
that he hoped the warning would
be regarded thr'oughout the en
tire~ cotton growing belt.
He showed how the farmers
aan control the warehousing and
marketing of their cotton ana
save a great deal of money both
in insurance rates and storage
sharges. He told how the mem
bers of the Federal Reserve
Board regarded South Carolina's
Warehouse Act, and with what1
aonfidence it has been -received
by the financers of New York1
ind Boston. There is no trouble
in procuring money at a low
rate of interest,- and the local1
banks can be, if they will, of1
great help to the farmers. He1
was not antagobistic to the
banks, but they must arrange
their affairs to be of help to the<
sole dependance of our prosper
iy, for if the farmers fail, the1
entire commercial and industrial
structure is weakened. He said
that State Warehouse receipts
3re now regarded gilt edge se-<
eurity, and money can be obtain- <
ed upon them at as low rate as1
the best of other securities, 1
whereas heretofore cotton had
no value as a security.
Mr. McLaurin made it clear
hat a new era is about to com- t
mence in this country and that
with an intelligent co-operationt
there is no reason why the farm
ars of the South cannot be inde
pendent as is their due. The

East drawing to a close, by the
system inaugurated,it will bring
the cotton direct from the farmn
to the manufacturing plant in
this country and the world.
when this is done the vast for
tunes heretofore made by those
who intercepted this product be
fore it reached the place where
it was to be converted from its
raw state to a manufactured pro
duct, and -become an important
article of coliimerce, will be re
turned to its rig htful- source
the growers.
He showed what had- been ac
complished, even by a small
support, by the warehousing in
the mat:.er of insurance. He
said that any farmner can have
bis warehouse on his farm and
it does not n~eed any expert
knowledge tobuild it, any man
who can build an ordinary stable
>r chicken coop cani also .build
a cotton warehouse and with
this kind of a house he has been
enabled to reduce storage and
insurance rates from 35 cents
per baly to 8 1-3 cents per bale,
and that lie is now in comnmuni
aation with parties with t b-e hope
that he will be enabled to still
furter reduce the rate
Senator McLaurin's speech
was not only instructive but en
ertaming, his handling of sta
distics was done in such a man
er that it bordered upon elo
uence. He was attentively lis
~ened to-all the way through.
By s ome misunderstanding,
while making the announcements
~or the chautauqua a number in
~he audience who had come dis
anees to hear Senator McLaurin
ot under the impression that
2e would not speak until three
'clock, and they left before he
>egan, with the intention of re
urning at that hour-these were
reatly disappointed when they
earned of the misunderstandmng.
The Senator was the recipient
>f a large petition from citizens
>f Summerton to speak in that
own in the evening, and al
hough he had important en
~agements elsewhere. he told
he writer that he would* make a
~acrifice in order to comply with
he wishes of the people of Clar
mdon, so after dmnner he went
o Sumimerton where he address
d the people of that community.

The presence of ~these gentle
men in Clarendon for this ocea
sion was greatly appreciaited,
not only by the committee .vho
invited them but by the public
generally, and we hope to ar
range some time in the iuI~ure
when the farmers are niot so
bsy to have them back *vith us.
