Olgn immigration from the South, as
the North is Jealots of .oxr growing
power and inagniflcent resources.
Whatever is done for education,
therifbre, must be done by the State. I
Already she Is doing much. The
blacks.receive more for schools than
they pay into the treasury for all pur
-poses. Mr. Tillman belives this liber- I
ality to be a little strained. lie fears
that our people are at present too poor
to endure any great increaso of school
4ax.either for whites or blacks, but he
,would be delighted to be convinced
that ho Is in error. He addo:
Undoubtedly the greatest obstacles c
to Improvemeut in our school system t
are poverty and sparse population.
Immigration rightly encouraged, to
-gethor with rigid economy and diver
sified industry, especially manufactur- 0
Ing, and more particularly cotton
manutfacturing, would soon overcome
both of these obstacles. I
Then follows an itteresting com- L
parison of the manufacturing facilities <
.of the two sections, leading to the con- a
clusion that there Is a balance of eight t
per cent. in our favor in manufactur- f
ing cotton, besides the expenses ot 1
transportation. A factory creates a :
town, and thus brings good schools
and a corresponding enlightenment of
the people. lie concludes:
,I shall not discuss the d~tails of pro- 2
-posed amntdmnents to the ptresent
school law, but, once for all, I wishu it,
to be understood that I favor as hiu-h
taxation na-tba.' vkm dortn I'rflu

for reorganizing and rebuilding the ~
South Carolina College or University; c
so as to ninake it a tirst-class institutioni t
-equal to any in the lanid for impart-i
ling either a literary, scientiflc or tech- I
'tdjal educatiou. Good popular edut
cation always goes downwua rd-nevert
upward-and it is the great imiver'sities
.of Harvard, Yale, lirown, Dartmouth
.and Burlington, more than their comn-r
emon schools, thattave rendered Newv 1
England so enlightetned and so practi
It may be said now, as It was two
thousand years ago, and wvill be two
thousantd years hence, that "knowledge e
is powver." The explanation why
little and naturally barren New Enug
,1aad rules the Unuited States to-dar
and has practically rutled them so
long, is that every child in those pettv,
inhosplitable Slates is w ell educated in
.both theoretical and practical knowl
edge, as was his fathe ir before him.
So, too, if South Carolina would coni
centrate her eff'orts tupon education
anid cotton mannufacturing, I have an
invincible faithn that the old common
wealth wrould quickly begin to rise up
grandly out of her rulis.
Mr. Tiillman hits the nail on the
head when be gives as the chief obsta
cles to education, poverty and sparse
ness. With money and with denser
population, the present system, with
a few changes, will be all that is nec
essary. Until these are secured no
system, publice or private, will give
complete satisfaction, A hundred chil
dren can be taughtin one sohool for one
third or one-fourth the amount re
quired for the instruction of the same
number scattered among half a dozen
or more different places.
So far as the education of t.Lec'>lored
people is concernted, they are citizens,
*of the country atnd will remain here,1
and it is the interest, as well as the
duty, of the State to educate them. A
- thorough education will make thetm
* stter citizens ju~st as it will improve
.anybody. The condluet of the blacks
In politics has been disheartening to
their best friends, and has tun
doubtedly given reason for the out
ery against educating them. But
South Carolina cait no more advane
with a barbarous race in her midst
than can Liberia or Sierra Leone. She
must educate all her children, and (10
ullshecanfor schools, or she wvill fail
tseueany of those sturdy and in
telligent immnigrants that are just now
6o eagerly sought.
Mr. Tillman, In our opiniion, voices
the popular sentiment in arguing for
.the best education and for common
sehools. Tho system is working its
way steadily In spite of all the embar
rassments that have heretofore en
bompassed It. In ten years It will be
the boast of this State as It is of older

sorward in %, usical development and the
grand question now being agitated in her
nmillions ot homes is not "Shall we buy an
instrunient," but "How and where shall
we buy it." And it is a perplexing ques

with flaming advertisements offering won

17 Stop Organs for $85. One friend ad

traveling agent comtes along and -"acoops
