.The Blackville and Newberry Itailroad
--A Short Line to Newberry-A
Chance for Charlestion.
Vigorous efforts are being nanade to
push through the projected Black
ville and Prosperity Railroad, in the
interest of which Col. Alfred Aldrich,
of Barnwell County, recently visited
The projected line will be run
from Blackville, in Barnwell County,
to Prosperity or Newberry as may be
decided to be most feasible. The
distance from Blabkville to either of
the points named is sixty miles, and
the distance from Blackville to Char
leston by way of the South Carolina
Railway is ninety miles. This route
will shorten the distance from Char.
le$ton to Newberry thirty-four miles.
and, if built by Charleston capi
tal combined with that of the
citizens of the territory through
which the road will run, will give
a route identified with the inter
ests of Charleston from end to end
and controlled by her friends. If,
however, after the p)eople along tihe
line have expended their money in
grading the road to Charleston should
stand aloof and allow alien capital
to come in and equip the road, the
result will be that New York, Norfolk,
Wilmington and other places will be
furnished an avenue to drain addi
tional territory that should contrib.
ute to build up the chief city of the
State. Augusta subscribed largely
to build the Augusta and Knoxville
Railroad, which connects with the
Columbia and Greenville Railroad at
Greenwood. It has recently sub
scribed $42,000 to the Augusta and
Newberry Narrow Gauge Railroad,
which will connect with the Colum.
bia dnd Greenville Railroad at New
berry. It has also subscribed to the
Greenville, Western and Atlantic
Narrow Gauge Railroad. These two
narrow gauge roads are now in pro
cess of construction. The Green
ville, Western and Atlantic Railroad
will connect with the Columbia and
Greenville Railroad at Ninety-Six.
These three roads, therefore, together
with the Charlotte, Columbia and
Augusta Railroad, will be opened di
rectly in the interest of Augusta, and
will take to that inland market the
commerce that they fail to carry
North and East from the rich upper
counties of South Carolina by way of
the Air Line Railroad and their con
nections of the Rlichmond and Dan
ville system.
It will not require a master of the
science of railroading or of the build
ing up of the commerce of a city to
see at once from this plain and un
varnished story that it will not pay
Charleston to remain inactive. Too
much has already been lost by the
indifference with which the develop
ment of our railroad connections has
been treated. The time for action has
arrived. It will not pay to lose any
more of the territory which should be
tributary to the commerce of Char
leston. It will not pay to allow Au
gusta or any other outside market to
levy tribute upon a section of coun
try which should naturally look to
Charleston as the ocean gateway to
the world. The inroads that have
already beeni madle upon our com
merce can be checked, not by mass
meetings and paper resolutions, but
by monecy contributions. Col. Al
drich, who is doing all within his
power to build the lilackville Rail
road in the Interest of Charleston, es'
* timates that with the subscription of
$100,000 by- the business men of Char
leston the road can be built and that
The route Is easy, the length ot the
line is the shortest that can be built
between Charleston and Newberry,
the country to be traversed by the
line is rich In its resources and there
is every reason why Charleston caplj
talists should take a lively interest
in the construction of the line that
promises so favorable results to the
commerce of this port.-News and

To Lawyers, IDoctors, Merchants-.
Wayward IBrethren :We have a
grievous charge to make against you.
Our wrongs are many, and our woes
innumerable; so stand at this bar
and listen to our aflldlavit. Inastead
of attending to your briefs, your
pills, and your calico, you have, with
malice, aforethought and felonious
intent, held all the ofllces in county
and State; and have been running
this government to the great detr'i.
"We" are material wvitnesses
to the above allegation. Are
ydu guiilt.) or not guilty ? Oh I
you say thme farmers stood und~er you
in a solid1 body and pushed you up
into ollce; anid so you propose to
make the f armners accessories to
your great cr-imne. But we intend to
prove the case against you before we
get through. D)o you dare to look
in our faces with all tihe innocence
have injured us ? Just look at these
battered hats and patched coats and
breeches. you purple and fline linen
dudes ! While you have been sitting
down on your flowery beds of ease,
as happy as frogs in a freshet, we
have been bearing the heat and bur
den of the day, trying to make our
living by the sweat of our brow-or
the sweat of the nigger's brow which
amounts to the same thing. And
the half has not been told yet. Why
have you not legislated in the in
terest of bigger. cotton crops, and
better prices ? .Why have you al
lowed our corn cribs and meat
houses to remain so far from home ?
Is it your love for the darned yan
kee ? And then look at that part of
)ur physical anatomy by which the
factor holds us with our heads be.
tween his legs; yes, we say look at the
enormous interest he charges, his
high commissions, besides his stcr
ige, his sampleage and his stealage.
W by is this thus ? Why have you
mot remedied these great evils ?
Why have you not given us our
ueeded reforms ? The Lord knows
wo need something and we'd take al
nost anything we could get. And
igain it has been said that when you
o to the Legislature you do all the
,alking, and our farmer representa
,ives have to take back seats, and the
)nly sound that is ever heard from
,hem is the popping of pinders, and
,he only time they ever open their
nouths is when they throw one in
md chaw. And they have even
een compared to that servant which
,he husbandman sent into his field
,o hoe cotton, and, verily, because
te was not watched, he did shirk his
oork and do nothing generally. But
ve propose to send another batch
his time, and if they don't do better,
ve'll instruct them to organize them
elves Into a joint stock company
mud "corner" the pinder market.
And now we feel It our duty to
-ise up in our might and do some
,hing to relieve us of this terrible
)urden of oppression. The poor
armers of the State must have their
axes reduced and their expenses in
3very respect lightened, and in order
o the accomplishment of this great
md good object, we propose to begin
y building an Agricultural and Me
3hanical College-cost what it may.
And we here intend to educate only
hose sons who promise to tread in
he same furrow their fathers trod;
mnd no son of a "professional" shall
ever find an entrance there. Yes,
we intend to build it if it takes thirty
rears to finish it; and though the
most of us may be buried under
he sod and our farms buried under
mortgages and the nails driven into
,heir collins by the sheriff's hammer,
still we'll leave it as a monument to
3ur good intentions. And then our
children will rise up and call us a
blessed-pack of fools.
Well the jury have agreed upon a
verdict and they find you guilty, and
not only guilty of holding all the
aflces, and running the government
but you have -been running it in the
interest of the whole State, and not
if us as a class, which greatly aggra
vates your offense. We therefore
mondemn and sentence you to be
Lianged up entirely ouit of the reach
>f ofilee on the fourth day of next
Novemnber, and may not a farmer in
~he State have any mercy on you.
Wayward firothers, go in peace.
U'arewell, a sad farewell.
You hauve bceen wianderers frocim the fold,
We'll niow leave you out in thme cold.

his success to urge them.
It is generally understood that
Judge Cothran can not'resign to en
ter the contest for Congress without
injury to the State and damage to
litigants who have cases in his hands.
In these circumstances we believe he
made on unfortunate mistake when
he became a candidate. We do not,
question his motives. 'ile people
have nothing to do with them. Facts
are all we ought to consider The
fact is that a judge on the bench is a
candidate for Congress seeking the
suffrages of the people among whom
lie sits as judge. The people owe it
to themselves, for their own safety
aid to secure the sanctity of the
bench in the present and its purity
in the future, to forget the love and
respect they justly hold for J. S.
Cothran the man, and to declare by
an overwhelming adverse majority
their rebuke of the judge who active
ly engages in politics and their pur.
pose that no man shall be on the
bench and a candidate before them
for other honors.-Greenville News,
July 27th.
Smokey Town Dowsings.
Prosperity 1'ress and Reporter.
Editors Press ai Reporter:
We cannot refrain from expressing
feelings of surprise at the action of
the farmers in and about O'Ncall.
Our surprise is not that they propose
to exercise the right of every free.
man-vole .for just whoeeer hec pleaes.
Newberry presents two candidates
for Congress the equal at least of
any in the field. Then why should
not every Newberry voter take one
or the other of those candidates. If
lie thinks one does not have a(li tihe
qualities or abilities he wants for a
member to Congress, then take the
other. All can certainly he suited
at home. If there is any honor in
this thing, we think every Newberry
man should have enough county
pride to work with might and main
to secure that honor for his county.
We always feel hound to huzza for
our own county, and have our opin.
ion for tho man who will not.
Now, Mr. Editor, there is a good
place here for some Newberry people
to stick a pin, and a great big one
too. It is this, it might happen "in
the course of human events" that
some of those men who are so willing
to ignore good men at home, and
look to other counties, may some day
want help for themselves, or fer some
of their friends, and will look to the
friends of our Newberry candidates
to come to their support. Then
should .uch contingency ever hap.
pen, it will be in order for t'e friends
of Lipscomb and Johnstone to say
"away I never knew you." Such
would be the natural course, and no)
one could utter one wordl of' conm
plaint. That patriotism which is
broad and knows no geographicail
lines, is very pretty on paper', but we
p)refer that kind that makes a man
know and stand by his home f riendls,
the man fionm his own neighborhood
or his own county. Prmevioums to t,he
war, the judiciary of South Carol ina:
were the purest and bnest, men lihe sun
ever shone upon, but what will now
be said? Man is but hiumnan, few,
yea it might be said none are so pure
and implartial that they are not liable
to be biased in f'avor' of the man who
has the most influence on thme hiust,
ings. Would Chevis, IIarp)er,on
stone, Wardlaw, Wi itner or our own
O'Neall have ever consented to have
come before the peop)le wral)t ini his ju.
dicial gown I It is enough to make
every one who has the love of' his
country at heart shudder,whecn lie coni
templates the f'uture of' any counitr'y
whose judicial officer's l)lace themi
selves in a position to seek thme votes
of the peop)le. We would hikew, if lie
citizens about, O'Neall would ask
themselves, if' John P>elt,on O)'Neal I
would have (done so? IIf it, would
have beenm wrong ini( O'Neall to have
done so, shiouldh we encourage or'
countenance any man of t his day, in
(doing thme same tIhing. W\e re('>ent
that, N ewberry has ats goodh tal~enit as
aniy county' in the dIistric't, yes, we do
honestly believe t,hat she can i,resenit

wvho have stood high in the front rank
in our State Legislature ami we feel

why in time mnme of' all that is sensi

The Augusta Chromicle of the 20th
1ublishes the tollowiug fliat contradic
tion of the statnent reported to
have beein made by Mr. 1t. 1R. Till.
man in his recent address at Aiken.
The statement of Col. Butler and
the letter of Prof. Joynes leave no
way out for Air. Tillman but to deny
the correctness of thQ reports of his
remarks at A iken. or Mr. Tillman
having used a statement in a public
speech which he <leclared was made
to him by i'to'. ,Joynes, will have to
meet the flat denial which P'rof.
Joynes makes with emphasis and
without any equivocation whatsoever.
What has he to say about it? I lere
is the letter:
"CO L-W a mA, S. C., . 13' 9, 1886.
".eior Ausjtax (;hronice: In
your account of ir. 11. R. 'Tilbtnan's
address at Aiken, 1 uly 10, he is re
ported to have said: '"The analysis
r)f fertilizers f'or te last three years
has cost an average of $30 on each
brand. We have been tohi by I'ro.
fessor Joyner of the South Ciarolhina
College that the clemist of the Col.
lege t>i Professor McJ ryde coffered
to have it done for $. per brand; why
it was not done he could not tell.'
"The ofilcial analysis of' fertilizers
in South Carolina are made .y the
Department of Agriculture, and the
remarks quoted will do this depart.
ment great injustice unless corrected.
''In making this estimate of the
sost of analysis M r. Tillman included
the amount paid for the laboratory,
which is a permanent investnent, and
the expense of collecting I'ertilizer
samples, which woulcl be incurre<l if
the analytical work was done by the
college. )educting these expenses,
the cost has been about $19 for (ach,
analysis, instead of $i0.
"'The creason that the proposition
said to have heenl made by the col
lege to make these analyses at $5
each was not acccpt.el is because no
such proposition was ever Iado.

who was elected.
The convention then proceeded to
elect a member of the executive commit
tee for No. 3. 1). A Thomas wasi nomni
nated and elected.
The uniinished business fron the lat
meeting was then taken up. The reso
lution of Geo. A. Mills, that trial jus
tices, be recommnded for appolitment
by priumary election should be adopted.
Y. J. Pope moved to amnend by lisert
lug that each township recoinmend its
own trial justices.
Geo. Johnstone wanted to know if it
would be right for trial justlees, who
represent the whole county to be ehosen
by townships. lie opposed the election
of trial justlees by the people. The best
thing to do would be to cut ny the whole
system, root and branch.
Mr. John C. Goggais, of No. 8, said
that he thought everyone in No. 8 would
agree with him in saying that they did
not want trial justlees at aill.
Col. Geo. Johnstone mnoved to lay tho
resolution on the table, which was ear
ried by 89 to 10.
The president stated that the next
business in order was the election of
eight delegates to the State convention.
T. S. Keitt offered the following reso
lut.ion, which he thought would give sat -
Ifauction to the entire county:
Ite solvet, That the members of this body
from each township select a itelegate from
their township and present, his 111am tothi
convention as a elolegate to the 8tate I)omo
orutie convention, to be hold in Cohunbla on
the 4th day of August next. Time convention
will then proceed to ballot for eight delcgates
out of the eleven nunneS presented, ani the
eight getting the largest number of htailots
shall be eelarod the tielgates and the other
three a,ho alternates.
Mr. Jolmstone thought that it did not
give the convention a fair chance, and
that it was contrary to the rules, which
state that. nominations must be made in
Mr. Keitt said that the convention so
lected the delegates just the same, only
that it was done by townships.
