'VOL ,XXIII. HATES I$.00 Rix N1oTIs. NEWBERRY, S. C., WBDNLISDA Y AUR 2 87 .C OE,rbilo 4blJr~Itr O Farmer Tillman *ipresses his Opinion of tpe Work of the "New: %Deal" General Assenl y. .To the Editor of the News and Conrter: Your editorial in the News and .fJourier of December 24, headed "The Same Old Trouble" is in the m$in just and appropriate, but at the same .time it is misleading. For in. stance, speaking of the bills emanat tug from the Farmers' Convention, and -which have been either post. poned, amended out of all shape or slapgl}tered outright in the Senate, you say : "Who is responsible we need not say. The Senators will be prepared, of Course, to explain -their action to their 'constituents when the proper time comes, and they will doubtless be. given the opportunity. But whatever their reason, good or bad, the ffdt remains that the quarrel of the farmers, if they have any, is with their own representatives. The non-agricultural members of the Gen. eral Assembly have been willing and and ready, as they have abundantly shown, to grant every request and adopt every plan which the farmers should agree upon for the advance t'nent of their peculiar interest, and to give to them the control of their peculiar affairs. The failure charge. able to the men whom they have selectLd and elected to carry out their plans and the settleinent must be had with those who are responsi. ble for the failure." You may rest assured that they will be "given the opportunity to ex. plain" and that "settlement will be had" with some of them when again the farmers get a chance. If the "farmers' movement," which has created such a stir among the people, is really a domand of the masses for reform, an1 t e correction of abuses, and' in' expre son of a desire to see our rights as farmers respected, it will continue to grow and spread, rather than dwindle and die' and will have much to do with shaping the future policy and politics of this State. But let that be as it may. I only set out to show you that, while correct as to. the House. your editorial is calcu ted to mislead when you say fartfl ah p the Senate are alone to blaui . Ap it order to make this clear I sh the complexion of our present Sene as regards occupation. It is composed as follows: Lawyers.........................15 Farmers.........................12. Doctors..........................3 Preachers ........................2 Editors and printers..............a Merchants................1 Total..........................35 -of whom 20 are new Senators and 15 are old ones, two of the new ones serving unexpired.terms. Now, the bill of all others in which farmers were most deeply interested, and which they desired to have passed -most was that enlarging the board of agriculture and reorgarizing the agricultural department. T1hs the Senate postponed, by a vote of 21 tQ 14, on the flimsy pretext, as volOed by Senator Youmans, that they "wanted more time to investi. gate this important matter." The April Convention had demanded it. Trhe November Convention had de. manded it. The matter has been thoroughly discussed for a year or more in the press, and charges of ex. travagance apid of incompetence, or neglect of duty on the part of the board, proven. But these Senatorial lawtnakers alone needed "more time to investigate." Well, we hope they will improve the two years eleven of them have got before the next elec. ition to study the matter and be pro. pared to give good reasons for their vote when asked. If, indeed, your reporter be correct in saying the F 4 "agricultural Senators were influ 1*1 enced by a determination not to sub mit to TIillma1n dictation," it will be a pitiful excuse for having refused Sto comply with the wishes of the farmers of the State; and an ack now. ledgment of having allowed perso nal motives to govern their action *, rather than a desire to legislate for the public good. No member of the General Assembly, either Senator or S Representative, can truthfully say * that I was either obtrusive or dicta. torial in presenting to them the measures asked by the two farmers' conventions, and it wIll be left to the fattners all over the State to resent in a proper way th~e imputation that Tillmian alone constitutes the "Farm. ers' movement." But if the agricultuiral Senators re. sented "Tillman dictation," what in. fluenced the other Senators ? [ will noiw proceed to show that the farm ers in the Senate are not alone to blame for deferring this bill. My old friends, the lawyers took advan tage of fthe fuss kicked up by Messrs. Youmans and Wfodto plant a sly dagger in,i Tillman's side and slap their agricultural constituents who have Joined the farmers' move ment in the face. This is shown by the vote, as follows: For Postponement. Occupation. Messrs. Boll............. Farme"r. B i mann...................... ir'nt & hotel-koeper, Black .................... Doctor. Byrd.......... .... ........Doctor. Erwin ...................a..n.FaL:nor. iomnphill. ....... .Lawyer. Howell ................... Lawyer. Islar.. .. ..............Lawyor. Konely................ Lawyer. MeMaster...................Lawyor. Moore........................Lawyer. Munro.............Lawyer. Patterson.................. Lawyer. Rha e.................. Lawyer. Itynolds................Lawyer. Smith ...................Far n er. smytho............ Lawyer. Wingard................. Farmer. Wofrord .................Farmer. Williams................ Preacher. Youmans................Mor'nt and farmer. --total 21. of whom eleven are lawyur., six are tarners, two are doctors, one is a preach er and one is a merchant. This looks very much like the "oli. gachy of lawyers," of whom I have spoken so often heretofore, did it ? It looks very much like the non.agri cultural members of the Senate, at all events, are willing to sneer at and spit upon farmers' efforts to ob. tain "control of our peculiar affairs." If the six farmer Senators controlled the fifteen non agricultural Senators in their action, it is the first instance on record of an agricultural tail wag. ging the legal dog. If the farmers whose votes sent these men to the Senate have any self.respect; if they have any manhood and a proper sense of resentment; if they are not the dogs they are taken for, they will, when the time comes, see to it that the men who thus contemptuously put this indignity upon them are properly rewarded. If we cannot reorganize the agricultural depart ment, we can reorganize the Sen. ate. The tarmers of the State are fast sinking to the level of serfs-hewers of wood and drawers of water for others. An c-flicient and representative board of agriculture, together with an agricultural college to act as a. pioneer in mapping out the new system of farming we are compelled to pursue ere we can ex pect any change for the better, could do much to aid and assist them to recover their lost prosperity. But these six agricultural - Solons and their fifteen professional associates say to them in effect: "You don't know what you want. We will con tinue to tax you .to support a depart ment of agriculture which you do not feel is beneficial to your interests as now conducted, because we like it. We will vote your money to support the South Carolina College and Citadel because we think those su$lools are -all we need; but your Agricultural College is a humbug. We know it. 'Wisdom will die with us.' So we will not even spend your own money to investigate the matter and let a commission report so we can act intelligently." It may be said the farmers in the Senate were divided, as they were six for and six against the bill. Then if the professional men in the Senate had needed light, as to the wishes of the farmers of the State, if the actions of two farmers' con. ventions had no weight, the almost unanimous vote by which the bill passed the House, composed largely of farmers, should have made them hesitate to postpone it. Blut I have my own opinion as to how this thing was brought about. I visited Columbia three times during the recent session of the Legislature. I kept my eyes and ears open. I learned a great deal that would be of value to the peop)le if I had time to tell it, and I will, when occasion offers, let out somne of the "true in wardness" of what I saw and learned. I could tell why and how tile hopes of the people as regards reforms and redction of expenditures, etc., re sulted only in the cutting off of a beggarly thousand dollars-the Lieu tent Governor's salary. I could sho0w that once an abuse is planted and takes root in South Carolina it is harder than nut grass to get rid of. iBut just now I will only give my be lef as to why the Senate postponed the bill to reorganize time agricultural clepartment. Of course some of the Senators voted against it because of their resentmenlt against "Till man clietation," for Mr. Gonzales says so; some voted-two at least-because they never vote against one of the Seln. ators. from Charleston, so I am told ; ot,hers voted against it because I am credited with having hmad much to do with the slaughtier .of the Columbia Canal and the Ring wanted revenge, though, to tell the truth, I am totally innocent In that matter. Some votedl against It because farmers and "farm ers' movements" stink in their 110s. nils. But the real cause, though many Senators (do not know it per aps, Is that the phosphate interests of he State are controlled by the Depart ~nent of AUriculture, and the Coosato iMining Company is too well sutis/iedl cit h the present management of that interest to allotw a change if it could orevent it ! WVhy a*board of agriculture sh'ould ave anlythling to do with collecting i mining .reyalty, farmers of ordi. ary Intelligence cannot understand. We dd not see thle connection between ~be two, but perhaps somn e fmhos who stat .ed this thing, and some of F those who keep it up, can give us light. This board of agrictlture, which is liked so well, has spent $170,000 since its creation in 1880, al and we would like some one to fi tell us what benefit it has been to us in farmers, who pay for it alone. Will to some Senator, "agriculturist" or w otherwise, answer ? -Or will some tr member of the board tell us ? tit B. R. TILLMAN. tit Roper's, S. C., Jannary 1, 1887. pl Comnients of the News and Courier on t Farmer Tillman's Criticisrns. cc Capt. Tillman, in a letter which is d< published to-day, criticises sharply St thQ action of the Senate upon the pc measures proposed through the farm er's convention, and particularly con. demus the postponemeIt of the bill ?1( to reorganize the A, - ;ultural De- du partinent. du From Capt. Tillman's point of c view, the agricultural Senators are not alone to blame. IIe insists that cv his pet aversions, the lawyers, are equally in the wrong. It appeared, hr however, by the report of the' debates, be we think, that the stoutest opponents wi of the projects which Capt. Tillman th, advocates were found in the ranks of Cl the farmers in the Senate. These are certainly responsible for the con. clusion reached, inasmuch as the '1'l change of their votes from one side to to the other would have insured the ?il passage of the bill. Capt. Tillman thinks that sinister re influences are at work in the Senate, Cc and he evidently questions the good faith of some members of the body, n but among the lawyers in the Senate are men of the highest character, andan it cannot;be supposed, for a moment, c that any of them has any other mo tive than;to serve the best interests m of the public as he understands them. There will always be differences of pr opinion, and there can be as much r honesty in one direction as in an- to other. We find no fault with the th intelligence or purposes of those who ti oppose the establishment of an Agri- th cultural College and the reorganiza- te tion of the Department of Agricul ture, though we are heartily in favor v of the college and of the reorganiza tion which was desired. Capt. Till- wn man in time, we hope, will look more 13 charitably upon opposing views, and when he reaches this point will findr the road to reform easier to travel. r11 There is a good deal of human na- po ture in mankind, and those whom Capt. Tillman has singled out at at different times can hardly be expect ed to look upon his propositions with ye as 'nuch favor as though lie himself la had always been studiously moderate and just. Much of what is asked for must depend for its acceptability wi upon the confidence reposed in the ?1 good judgment and sound informa. tion of those who ask for it. to We shall continue to urge the es tablishment of the Agricultural Col - lege, and such reorganization of the Department of Agriculture as was contemplated at the last session of cr4 the Legislature. Besides this, we shall always be ready to give the au farmers, whatever- their views, a full i and fair hearing on the subject of re form. They can, through our columns, S continue to express their senltimnents andl pult their arguments before the an public. The main difmiulty in the pr way of reforms, howzver piromnising, i'a is in lack of knowledge. The farm.-i crc, therefore, with men like Gen. ?l IIgo,Capt Tillmain and Mr. Nor the cudgels in behalf of the agricul- gn tural interests. Th'ley will either tO make converts enoughl to render their?1 ultimate success certainl, or they will, il through discussion, 1)e ledl to mtodi-u fy their own desires. The great object is to get at the truth-the truith as to tihe evil, and thme truth as to the r-emedy-. The farmers can assist tile whole p)eople tl by exp)ressing their 'wishes and the reasons for them.a P'rohilbition ini Anderson.- ha Last Monday was a bitter coldire salesday, and was doubtless a severe r strain on tile no-license system wvich went into operation in Anderson on last Saturday.

The present Legislature too, like a I its predecessors, was guilty, at its I et session, of the sin of omission a mori than one instance. It failed t pass several measures before it v lch clearly had for their object re- s 3nc)ment in the administration of r e State and county governmeoits of t e very sort demanded by the pe e. -Lancaster Review. The Lancaster Ledger in reviewing e work of the General Assembly neludes by saying: "It will thus seen that very little has\been >no to reduce the expenses of the ate Government and very few im. rtant changes made." In spite of the tremendous agita. mn which shook the very founda. .* ins of South Carolina democracy ring the year that has just closed measures of reform were passed. t ie appropriations are as large as er.-Fee Dee Index. The Legislature has put in some r rd work, and passed a fewer num. 1 r of acts than usual, but these acts v 11 likely be beneficial, and none of t em are calculated to do harm.-- t arendon Enterprise. L No great deal was done for t')e ricultural interests of the State. ie House showc ,nore disposition v do something in that line than did 3 Senate. The former body by a cided vote, passed a concurrent 3olution to appoint an Agricultural immisslon, to consist of ex-Gover. r Johnson Ilagood, of Barnwell, -Chancellor Johnson, of Marion, d Capt. B. R. Tillman, of Edge id, to visit the several Agricutural lleges now in existence, or as my as might be .%ccessary, with a c .w to the establishment of a similar a ititution in the State, if deemed c acticable. In other words, the ob. S it of the proposed commission was obtain information, light. The V ree gentlemen proposed are among 3 most prominent, experienced and g ceessful iarmers in the State. Af passing the House by a decided a to, as we have stated, the resolu n was sent to the Senate, where it " s killed by a large majority. The in objection urged against the pro sed measure was that it would st something-perhaps a few hun ed dollars or more. It seemed it whenever any measure was pro sed in the interest of agriculture C rtain members of the Senate were acked by a sudden economic fit, t these same economists were al ys ready to vote thousands of dol s for "Lhe more speedy develop. mt of the Columbia Canal," and Lke other large appropriations thout stint. -We are Inclined to t nk there are too many profession. gentlemen in the present Senate . give the agricultural interest a r show. We do not mean to ap r this remark to the disposition the learned professions generally, i vards agriculture.

We fe'ol it due one C minent lawyer in the Senate, how- 0 3r, to make an exception in his tI ror. W hen the concurrent resolu- ~ n camne upj proposing to appoint i Commission abov-e referred to, n p)romptly took the floor and made it able, manly and unanswerable ar ment in favor of the measure, iIe ( esaw its defeat, as he seemed to a nk, andl warned tihe Senate of the imate effect of the rejection of so d(est and reasonable a request in ~ interest of the farmers of the k ite. lie predicted, as one of the w 3cts9 of the rejection of the measure, It the p)resent Board of Agricul 'e would be completely.reorganized e' year hence, anid those now coin- a sing It, from the first omeler down, 1 uld 'oe removed, and others puit in hi ir place.

One of these tations is to be established in the 'iedmont section of the State and no in the lower tier of coun ies. This was not in accordance rith the original design, only one tation being contemplated as a ueleus. But it was perhaps the est that could then be done, It is sort of compromise between the up country and low-country." This 3 all that was done for the agricul ural interest of the State. Little as Is. it seemed to be done grudging y, and with an air which seemed to ay, "Take it, d-n you and go."

The laws of the State authorize lie sale of whiskey tinder certain re. trictions and the voters of Spartan urg have ordered the opening of bar ooms here. The Sp artan will not ick against the laws nor quarrel rith the voters nor heap any abuse on hose who sell the whiskey, provided ley observe faithfully all the laws earing on this question, but it will eek from time to time, to persuade en to be more temperate in the use t' alcoholic drinks.

There would ot be a single whiskey saloon in partanburg, if all the inen and boys f the county would refuse to drink nything for the next twelve months. b is because many of our people emand whiskey, that the barrooms re here. Men from the town and Duntry, men of all ages and colors ay they must and will have it; and t any cost. That is just why enter rising men, without any regard to ublic opinion of their calling, en. age in this business, which needs o advertisement and no drummer to .licit trade. It is estimnated that all te saloons of Spartanburg took in 120,000 during the year 1883. This 'as equal to three dollars for every habitant of the county. This mo ey was not only a dead loss to those ho paid it, but it worked great harm i hundreds of homes. This money 'ould have built three hundred neat ottages, or it would have purchased undreds of improved implements )r the farmers, or it would have ought many comforts for the home. gain the people of our county are sked to come forward and pay in 120,000 for beer and whiskey. here is no law forcing them to do is and those who contribute to rais. ig this large revenue will do It of icir own free will and accord, and ist because they love the whiskey. he best plan is never to enter a sa ion nor take a drink anywhere. esist a hall' dozen times and you ill soon find it easy to pass the in iting doors without entering.

We notlced in the December No. of the Carolina Teachert an article on the propriety of attemlpt.ing to teach philoso phy in the Colmon schools of the coul try. TIte writer very wisely called at tention to the difillties attendhng its Introduction Into the school room. The need of apparatis and the many classes are great hinderances, it is true, but not suilclent to cause it to be entirely ig uored, or passed by. With the diliicul ties mentioned to coitend with, it can not be taught thorough1ly, we admit, but shol, we leave anything untaught be cause it can be done only in1 an imper feet way. No, this kind of reasoning is falhilcious. In fact, (10 we teach any of the prescribed branches perfectly ? In most instances we fall far short of perfection. Most teachers think that their whole duty is done in the common school when they have contended with their pupils hIi history, arithmetle, read ing, writ ing, etc. Cannot some of the great truths of philosophy be taught without the use of ia great, deal of apparatius ? Fifty years ago, in m1any colleges, there was a hick of apparatus. The teacher did not dare, however, to suspend the teaching of :philosophy. Sueh ia step as this would have been fatal and they knew it. It Is to be feared that we often have too many inagined dillicutlties to contend with1, dilliculties which the teachers of a hundred years ago never dreamed of. The oplilion I; gaining grottnd rapidly that (lie pat i of both learner and teacher can be made veru easy. This idea may eventually leadi us into the road to error. We imagine that. we need too much help. There is one branch, chemistry, that, for the want of apparatus we may leave nitaught, but. it is the only one, of iu portance to every child, to be passed by. We should remember that it is our duty first to teach as well as we can, the primary branches; tl "se are necessary to iItelligenIt citizenship. After this lus been done, thlen let us give the pupil, who is unable to attend college, the Op portuuilty of learning sonme, at least, of the great questions that have moved the mintds of imen let the ages past. When the helps so often needed Il the schuol room are wanting, let us go forward and do as well as we can without them. We often want too much; this is a fautlt, however, with others as well as teachers. School Punishm1eit. What do you think a proper kind of school paauishaanent ?
