DINTINCTION WITHOUt' A
*'hile on this subject, we may as
~otice a stajtement the editor of
IO,1HEhRALD AND NEWS makes in
enting on Mr. Duncan's article.
"If we understand Mr. Davie, a
member of the free trade club, who
wn~present at its meeting in Colum
bia,\he made the statement that even
if absolute free trade were adopted
it woul1d only require an additional
-tax of 4 mills to raise sufficient reve
nlue by direct taxation to mneet the
expenses of the government. The
.editor of the Observer says he made
Iculation, and that by his est>.
* "a1e it will take an additional tax of
tis is misleading, in that it makes
ear that Mr. Davie and the Ob
*serverihad both simply said they had
made a calculation in some indefinite
Sway. As to Mr. Davie, this is true;
4he simply said he had made the cal
~ ~culation, but gave no data. But the
Observer gave the data. We quote
hat we said on this p)oint:
The taxable property of the Uni
edSta?tes, including all the States
sud'territories, is not quite 17 bil
lions; requires nearly 300 millions
to run t government-that would
,.require about 17 mills. Letting the
internal revenne stand as it is (120
millions), and raising the balance by
direct taxation. it would require a levy
o about 11 mills-as much as we
now pay for State and County taxes."
We submit that this is altogether
different from saving "that he had
-made the calculation, and that by his
estimate it will take an additional
tax of 17 mills." It in the difference
betwei n saiyng a thing and p -or.ing it.
~jWe have certainly proved it if our
ursare correct; and they are taken

l re- considered that I had done or said
irty anything to justi'y it. But I cannot
!rry conceive how he can possibly find
up- anything in the language used by me
to take offense at, and the more es
pecially, as he now informs us that
he is a -tarifT reformer," which is all

Ak's is so very sensi:ive and ready to take
icle offense. where none is intended or
vith thoulht of, he ought to be a little
ars. more careful about giving it. I have
a as not, and shall not attempt to "ride
art- any hobbies over the Observer," and
(o if the editor is on the look out for a
lent "hobby rider lie may, perhaps, find
aun one nearer Lon.
the Thus much premnised of a personal
sely nature, I shall proceed to answer the
It arguments and statements made by
u the Observer, in so far as they were
tly not answered in my previous article.
the In the first place the Observer quite
ces- misconceives the meaning of the
Oi term "free trade." It does not at
suf- all mean no taifrf. Strictly speaking
, it may be said to mean no protection,
s that is no obstruction to trade by
n of protective duties. But well regulated
our and fairly adjusted revenue tariff is
r on not necessarily an obstruction to
an trade at all. On the contrary it may
serve rather as a stimulus, in the way
that of healthy rivalry. In the general
but acceptation of the term. a revenue
, a tariff is a "free trade" tariff; and in
pro- that sense I am in full sympathy
with our "free trade" association,
for though I should have preferred hav
ing it called a "tariff retorm" associ
mave ation. Great Britain is universally
n in known as the great -free trade" coun
.jet try of the world, and by means of
t.in her free trade she has extended her
to commerce and manufactures to the
ade remotest corners of the earth. Yet
for she collects, as I have already shown,
nearly one fourth of her government
ub revenue from her tariff on imports.
its From 1846 to 1860, we had what our
lute protectionists are pleased to term our
"free trade tariff"; and it was the
one most flourishing period in our history.
this both of our commerce and manufac
turers. Yet even then there were
duties on certain articles as high as
S:30 per et ut. But it was a very "free
~etrade" taritT compared with what we
onow have, when many duties run up
of to over 100 per cent. 'he recent
tnational convention in Chicago con
tsisted of '-free traders" and "tariff
~dreformners,' andl some of thme principal
leaders, such as David A. Wells, who
luc presided over the convention, are
mnembers b)oth of free trade and tariff
.n reform leagues. The inconsistency
tur~e then and the absurdity of thle samne
.han person being ho:hi a tariff reformer
ibli- and a free tradler exists only in the
e( nmipprehension of the Observer as
ad< to the use of the term free trade. If
rep- I have committed this absurdity I am
tice in wonderful good complanyV, and for
:hat the most laudable purpose-the re
mce form and reduction of a most unjust
s~ it and oppressive system of taxation.
umal If such constitutes mec a "hobby
ext rider" I am proud of it. In the same
?ar- way, in being a civil service reformer.
th I wouldi not abslish the civil service
Sin system, hut I would aholish its abuses.
m-I would abolish thoroughly and comn
aw pletely the iniquitous "spoils" sys
sla- tem, and put in its place a civil ser
les. vice founded on decency and comn
this mon sense, on merit and capacity,
the suhas every ohrcivilized govern
the ment under the sun, republic or mon
lit- archy adopts. IIere, too. I am in
de- wonderfully good company, from Mr.
>ra- Cleveland down. and am proud of it.
lers But as a civil service reformer I am
ess- well aware that I can not expect fair
treatment from the Observer. An
is other of my "hobbies," p)erhmaps. is
nal opposition to the continued coinagze
he- of silver. 1 consider it an outrage
on and a shame to continue thme pur
the chase wih public funds of $28.000,
'on- 000 worth of silver ore per~ annum
are from a few millions of Colorado and
bee Nevada, and to coin it into 80 cent
-of dollars to pay lnborer wages. I ini
ae sist that the "bread-winner," just as
B~ut imch as thme man of wealth, has need
of and has the rihlt to be paid ~in
money ol the full value. Yet by~ the
.ied jcontinued coimnge of depreciated sil
of ver dollars. seventeen million "bread
'ro- winners" according to theC last ceni
ast sus. are in danger of hiaving their
by wages reduced fully one-fifth, by the
>ia, forced adopti~on of a silver basis in
mt. stead of gold.
is It has not been long since I heard
on- a~ gentleman of Newherr-I will not
ei- name h im-say lhe disliked the very
ate name "reformer." Now I am just
sed the opposite. I like the name and
he Ithe idea it gives, and would have it
is applied wherever there are abuses in
as our grvernmenit, national. State or
municipal. It is no doubt very true
that there is much deception in it,
Cs- and that many who profess to be re
ila- foriners are not sincere. W e are
told, for istance, that Saim Ran
the as gre. 'ff reforiner. It would be
formers to trtis 'v for sincere re
188;3 to put the work o, 'twsi
sion made up from the leaders of the
various protected interests; and the
result of doing so would no doubt be
as nugatory as was the work done by
that famous commission. If reform
ers wish a satisfactory result in any
movement, they must trust to do
their work, only those who have
proved their sincerity, and not such
as have only come into the move
Inent after seeing how popular it was
going to be. We shall doubtless,
after a while have many tarift re
formers of the Sam Randall kind.
I of course remember the remarks
of the various gentlemen in the meet
ing at Columbia, some of them very
crude and some of them: very san
guine. caused no doubt by an imper
feet understanding of the enormous
difliculties they will have to over
come. A few, at least, such as Col.
MeMaster, have a better understand
ing of the subject and are not by any
means so sanguine of early success;
and do not believ- that absoi ute free
trade with direct taxation is either
attainable or desirable. More of
themn will come to this view as they
learn more about the subject.
In conclusion. I rill only note that
the Observer says that the govern
ment expenditure for pensions now
amounts to over $100,000,000 per an
num. Mr. Manning, Secretary of
the Treasury. says they amounted to
$56,102.2G7.49 for 1885, and ie esti
mates the amount for 18SG at $54,
000,000, and for 1887 at $75,830.200.
Perhaps. however, the Observer is
better informed. B. 0. 1).
Christmas has come and gone and
perhaps many are ready to make
vows for the new year that is (lawn
ing upon them.
Among the chief attractions in this
community were an exhibition of Mt.
Tabor school. and the Christmas tree
at Piney woods church. The exhi
bition on Thursday was well attended.
The exercises were opened with
prayer by Mr. Jacob Sheely and con
sisted of dialogues and recitations in
which about eighty students partic
ipated; all acquitted themselves well
alike to preceptors and students.
At Piney woods on Friday a large
crowd assembled to witness the
beautiful and well ladened Christmas
tree. Rev. J.. K. Efird offered an
earnest prayer after which he deliv
ered a short but npplropriate address
to the S unday school i-emnd i n the
young .that the gifts from the tree
were typiail of the greatest gift to
man-the gift of God's only son that
through Him we might have life. The
presents were distributed and many
little boys and girls returr.ed home
with gladdened hearts.
Senator Sligh is home again and

they yet live and enjoy the sweets in

T1he new wing to the school build
ing at Mt. Tab;or has as if by magice
sprung into existence and is nearing
completion. A subscription is now
being taken to p)ut on a belfry whieb
means from the liberality of the sub

children of the school hour.

TEACHER'S DEPARTMENT. CS
C. W. WELCH, A. M, EDITOR.
In the month of August, of the
rear just past, under the management
)f the School Commissioner. a teach- F
rs institute lasting during two days
vas held in the Newberry Female
Academy. An effort was made to
;ecure the attendance of every white
chool-teacher in the County, with G
Dartial success only. During the lar
neetings of the two days, papers were
ead by a number of practical teach
rs and of friends of education.
rhese papers treated of the best
method of teaching, and, in the opin
on of the writer. have been profit- ov
ible to all concerned. IDuring the fre
ast meeting of the Institute, a Teach
County Association was formed,
mnd a time and place of meeting at
stated intr-rvals were arranged. So
par,those meetings have accomplished
very little, owing mainly to the very me
neleinent weather of the days on
chicb held, but due partly to the in
:liffere.ice of many who should allow
othirg to keep them away. Now,
fter an interval of six months, an
>her effort is put forth in the cause, mi
he object of which is to aid in suc- otl
.essfully carrying to ultimate com- Jai
leteness the plans of the Teacher's ap:
Association. Ihis last effort is the
ffer to the teachers of a column in I
the NEIFIYIt1 HERALD AND NEWS,
which is to he devoted to their work.
At the request of the publisher and
the editor of this paper, I have con- nol
sented to undertake the duty of edit P
ing this department. on
Elucation in its broad sense, I be- pal
ieve, is the hope of our country. No -
class of our citizens has a more re- S
sponsible work to do than the teach
ers of our youth. No one, therefore,
should lightly entertain the notion of up
becoming a teacher of youth, an au
thority in the world of thought, a Th
trainer in the world of mind, an ex- act
ample in the world of action. And Th
when one has decided to make this an
his life work, he should spare no iro
pains to fit himself for the work. Un- Th
der circumstances over which many ho
of us have no control, many teachers on
have had very poor opportunities for r
equipping themselves ; and, hence, to
the need of just such efforts as are in
now making in this county to remove _
the deficiencies of many.
Believinr in the necessity of work
and the immediate action in this mat- wl
ter, I accept the duties herein im. aci
pose1- not because of any peculiar kn
fitness for the pl::ce, brt simply and sit
sincerely because I want to help im- fs
prove the common schools of New- for
berry County, and I shall not shirkOi
from the duty, when the smallest cal:
possibility exists of my doing good
in tis matter.
To the teachers andI to all friends
of education, I address myself, when
I ask y-ou to write communications,
t ofTer sugrgestions, to do whatever
you can to help nu to make this ef
fort successful. er:
The editor promises mc all the ert
space I want, and I promise you all Jai
of my lest efTorts. S3o, fellow-work-th
ers. come, let us labor together. mm
