The 20th and 27th "f net?.ber ls
the time for the 2nd An .uni Fair
of the liiiucns County Agricultu
ral and Mechanical Association.
This is perhaps tin? most critical j
period in tho history of tho Asso
ciation. Will tho energy and en
thusiasm un ter which the Associa
was formed, bo allowed to lan
guish? Will petty differences and
discord be allowed to impair the
pleasure and usefulness of these
annual re-UllloilS of farmers ami
their friends. Now ls the time to

Some people may look upon this

but it is not so. Stock Shows and
Agricultural Fairs exorci'usn most j
potent lnfluoi.ee over the commu

feature-strengthening the ties of
brotherhood and friendship-such
things servi' o elevate agriculture
as a professio.i, Thc annual com
petition-ouch striving to excel,
stimulates farmers, and especially
young farmers, to improved meth
ods. It behooves us to embrace
every opportunity that offers im
provement in agriculture ami the
mechanic arts. This fair is an Im
portant ? vent in our history, ami it
can be made the means of pleasure
and profit, if only the people take
interest in it. Now, let each feel
that by bis exertion be can add to
the success of the occasion. Let
each prepare some article for ex

The American citizen has gained
a world renowned reputation for
energy and progressive activity.
The Southern gentleman of other
days, reclining in ease and ele
gance, surrounded by all the lux
uries of life and comforts which
wealth eau bring, is a rare specta
cle in this age. In bis stead can
be seen tho busy, bustling man of
business. Those w ho now acquire
wealth in thc South, ?lo not seek
happiness in indolence, but they
have learned that true happiness
cornea only when the faculties of
body ami mind are given healthy
exercise. "Ib? up and doing," is a
motto which the young man of tho
period cannot disregard with im
In all the aims of life, we find
that those only have reached their
goal wdio have maintained a fixed
determination to succeed. Push
is tho watchword of the hour.
Growing industries and sharp com
petition render activity and busi
ness enterprise prerequisites to
sueeess. Day by day we see that
there is growing a tendency to ob
literate tile ideas of aristocracy
founded upon occupation, ami the
advanced American idea is that
honesty and industry coupled w ith
culture and intelligence, is all that
is necessary in order to give an en
trance into a respectable circle in
Tlie prospect for an early com
pletion of the Chester, Greenwood
and Abbeville Railroad grows
brighter than ever. South (Jaro
lina has shown energy, /.eal ami
determination to succeed from the
first, but now, tim assurance comos
that Georgia, and especially the
mendiants ami business men of
Athens, are fully aroused to the
importance of the enterprise.
Such a road bas long been contem
plated by the syndicate which ls
now pushing the project. It is
the legitimate extension of the
system controlled by Mr. ROBKRT
HOS. It is the connecting link for
this company, between the North
and South. This road passes
through Laurens County, because
lt affords an inviting field, but the
Advantage** which the section
through Which it passes will re
ceive, are incalculable. Surely no
one who hus watched, even cas
ually, the rise and progross of the
town of Laurens; who have noted
the revolution whichr al I road < have
wrought in tho price of goods, and
especially heavy goods und cotton,
can for a moment question the val
ue of railroads. AVith this grand
thoroughfare, in addition to our
numerous roads, Laurens will in
deed bo a condition to hold ber own
with any County in the State. Let
all bands work for this grand eil
Much ls being suhl about an as
sociation being formed to effect a
loan to citizens of Charleston, with
the state t<> endorse the bonds.
We all feel a deep interest in Char
leston; thc recent calamity that
bas befallen our metropolis, touch
ed tin? hearts ol all Carolinians.
Kvery part of the State, Irrespec
tive < f locality, han responded with
an open banded liberality, which i*?
commendable. No one could ob
ject to giving the stale as security
upon the proposed plan, but this is
Impracticable. Aside from all
other objectionable features, tho
soli?me ls unconstitutional, and
that settles the matter. Hut, be
causo the State cannot endorse tho
lannis, ?s no reason why a loan as
sociation could not bo formed to
aid these unfortunate citizens In
rebuilding their homes. After pro
viding for those in actual distress,
sundy enough funds can be saved
fr?.m tho liberal contributions that
are coming in to make a beginning
in that direction.
The state rejoices in the fact that
Capt. Wo F KO un, instead of Dr.
SMITH, will go lo tho state Senate
from Spartanburg. But it ls a dis
grace to Spartanburg that l>r.
SMITH cana' within only fourteen
votes of receiving the nomination.
SMITH tried, an obi dodge-the cry
of persecution, ami immediately
before the Primary, he crowded
tho newspapers with bis letters
and Hooded the country with bis
circulars, which bad a striking re
semblance to tho letters and circu
lars <d' a demagogue. Ho styles
himself the "poor man's friend,'?
end appeals to tho lowest class of
Ignorance, When it appears
that such appeals are so near suc
cessful, it is no wonder that this
man would wish to withhold edu
cation, and that Sn HUM AN had not
spared tho South Carolina Univer
sity fi . bis fiendish torch,
O t?mpora, O mores! How long
will the people tolerate and sup
port men who seek to deceive ig
norant voters? But Mr. SMITH, if
thc educational system of the State
is allowed to remanin, and rather
than destroy any part, tho system
is improved, we may expect a time
when voters can detect impostors.
To all who feel an interest In tho
cause of education, who desire to
sec the young mon ol tho State en
joying thc blessing (tf a liberal edu
cation, it is certainly encouraging
to know that of tho men nomina
ted for tho legislature at tho re
cent primaries throughout tho
State, a majority are in favor of
sustaining our institutions of learn
ing, and of building up, rather than
tear thom down.

Tho election is over and Mr. T

' pose to take up the question pro- '
j pounded by Capt. M. lt. Tillman at !
! Laurens, on tho 19th ol August last : !
j "What is the mutter and what ls
i tlie remedy ?" and we propose to
[ show that "bard times" are not
I confined to South Carolina, and
therefor'.? not caused by tho Coutil ^
Carolina State Government. That '
they (hard times) ??re not confined I
to farmers, but extends to all
' classes throughout thc United
1 states, excepting only a few priv
i ?led monopolists, and that the most
I probable cause of our ''hard times1'
is tho United states Taxation,
! which wrests from the people of
\ the United States hundreds of
! millions ol* dollars, under tax law s
I which tend to make tho "rich
richer and the poor poorer," and
which grinds out of the people of
Laurens County, hundreds of thou
sands of dollars, all of Which was
ignored by Capt. ll. lt. Tillman.
Lot tho State Government be ar
raigned for any and all of Its short
comings and for any and. all of its
extravagance, but when this is
done, sundy it is but right that tho
state Government, the Hampton
Democracy-the white peopXe of the
State-should be entitled to such a
trial as is accorded to tho veriest
culprit in the criminal dock, i*, p.:
be responsible for their own wrongs
and not for other people's wrongs.
Nothing so dries up tho sources of
the prosperity cfo people as unnec
essary taxation. And over our peo
ple, our County and our State,
there is much unnecessary taxa
tion. Hut it does not come from
our State Government.
As publie attention bas been
aroused to the subject of Taxation,
it is to be hoped that this attention
WllJ not bi.Ilfined to only a part
of the subject, but that the people

tor. And it betrays tile grossest
empiricism for one who either as
sumes or is thrust into a political
leadership to undertake to account
for our "hard times'* by referring
solely to our State tax. Such ail
?me literally plays t he part of the
"blind leading the blind." The
"tempest." which Capt. Tillman hus
aroused in the State, it must he
confessed, is not confined to a ti a
poi. lt is of an extent and pr?
tions worthy ol' a better cause.
Capt. Tillman luis shown an ability
t?i "lire the popular heart,' which,
bail it been directed against our
real causes of hardship, might have
matle bim a leader of .States and
Stati smen. Heavens! 'w hat a fall

which have burdened the press,

States and cities, including the en

Middle and Western States there
has boen a gigantic revolt of labor
ing men, accompanied by bloodshed,
?til i age and incendiarism. Those
outbreaks have been occurring for
several years ami continue to be
imminent down to the preset time.
As late as the (?th day of September

nessed a procession of Seeentccn
thousand of tho Knigh's of Labor.
On the same day twenty thousand

About a year ago Mr. I. V. Pow
derly, tho Grand Master Workman
ol' tue Knights of Labor, published
in the F?rth American /.'reine,
that in the United Slates there
were two millions of men out of
work for the reason (bey could get
nof/n'ng lo i/o!" (N. A. lleoiew,
July '86, page ?7). And as late as
the flrgt of this month, many ol' tho
street ears in tlie tdtyof New York
could runoniy under strong "police
escorts. This disturbed condition of
I things; this paralysis of industry,
I has existed ever since 18711. In
IS77, Secretary of State of the
United States, Mr. I'varts, nu Usn?
in the Philadelphia /'reas, that ut
that time more than half of thc
iron fou ndrles of the United Slates
were "out of blast," while Other
well-informed writers on that sub
ject say "two-thirds were "out of
blast." A writer in the "Galaxy
Magazine, for October 1877, wrote:
"The industries of tho country
were never, In the memory of this
generation, so smitten with paraly
sis." Again, th? sn nu? writer said:
''Beal estate in cities and towna
has tallen in price to such an ex- |
tent that mortgages of Ave years ,
duration most commonly take tho.
n inth properti/f ami leaves the mort- \
f/ayor ia Webt."
faarly in this mouth, a National
Farmers' Congress convened at St. I
Paul?, Minnesota. Their president
a Mr. .Robertson, on opening the
Congress adverted hi strong terms
to the languishing condition of
Agriculture throughout the whole
nation, ami painted In strong colors
the necessity of relief to avert still
greater prostration. Could tho de- j
pressed condition of agriculture 1
in other States or the "hard times" :
which cause "strikes" and labor Ol'- j
ganizallons and demonstrations,
como fruin thc South Carolina ,4oii
ga re hy 'd' Lawyers," ?o- from too
great an allowance to the Govern- i
nor for stationary, or any or all of
the petty extravagances charged j
against our state Government?!
As well might anyone attempt to j
dam up the Mississippi with hts
foot, or tunnel through tho Blue
llhlge with a gimblet, as to attempt
to account for our depressed busl
lii'ss condition by referring exclu
sively to our state Government!
To do so, is to manifest a most
superficial view of tho subject; is
virtually, trying to curt- a desper
ate case of fever with a schultz
powder. Our country is Ina bad
condition; we are getting 1 no bet'
ter fast.'' Tho rich are getting
I richer and the poor poorer. A few
i favored monopolists are fattening
on the sweat and toil of lite masses.
While this may bc avoided to a
, small extent by sonic State laws,
? the greatest cause, by far, is en
tirely OUtstde of any State laws.
; But we must reserve this to another
? time. For the present we will on
I ly inquire who ot our Tillman wor
: shipping friends can tell what tax
ho ?>r they, ur anybody, pays unnu

' our many Agricultural Clubs can
I tell us bow much Laurens County
j annually pays, in tho shape of indi
j rect taxi's, to tho United states
Government? If any of our Agri
' cultural Clubs can give us this in
