Fenoe or No Fenoe.
A large and enthusiastic meeting of
the citizens of the county, who are
interested in the question of “fence or
no fonce,” assembled at the court
On motion, Cap. R. P. Doss was
called to the chair, and C. H. Wil
liams requested to act os secretary.
Chairman Doss called the meeting
to order and explained the object, fol
lowed by Mr. John I. Parker, in a
few remarks, who suggested that the
meeting hear from Judge Alexander,
•who hnd investigated the matter.
Judge Alexander, upon invita
tion of the meeting, made a very in
teresting and instructive address on
the subject, heartily favoring the law,
although suggesting some changes and
advantages to bo derived by certain
alterations in the hounds, as now laid
down in the law.
In the course of his remarks, he
took'occasion to refer to his visit to
the western and northern states; the
prosperity of that section, and attrib
uted it to the vast saving by means of
not having to fence the land. Land
there was worth from 840 to 800 an
aero, aud all a farmer had to do was
to build his house aud go to plowing.
Ho alluded to the cost of fencing and
had referred to our county tax books
and obtained the following figures:
There were in -Thomas county 1600
farms, each farm averaging 100 acres,
with an outsido fence, at 400 rails
to the hundred ‘ yards,
$112 at 81 a hundred. If you divide
the farm into two fields it will cost
856 extra, making 8168. If you di
vide it into four fields of 26 aires
each, it will cost 8224. This, for the
1500 farms, will make a total cost of
fencing for Thomas county of 8336,
0Q0, being that much dead capital,
which necessitated an annual outlay
pf 10 per cent, if 833,600 for keeping
up the fences yearly. All this a worse
than total and absolute loss. (Besides
this may be considered the necessary
setting aside of the woods land, for
the purpose of growing timber for
rail purposes, which may be safely
estimated at 8§00,000, being in cap
ital that can only be utilized for the
purpose of rail timber, and that ought
to be opened up for cultivation and
bring a revenuo from rents.) The
judge mode a good practical speech,
and wound up by reading the article
(heretofore published) by John I. Par
ker, on the subject.
Leon Neal made a few remarks,and
called on Judge Hopkins, who re
sponded in a short, practical speech,
in which he stated that he was heart!
ly in favor of the law, and cited tbe
fact that in all states and counties
which had tried the law, not one had
ever made a change,and it had always
been found so valuable that the longer
the operation of the law was in force
the greater benefits were perceptible.
He alluded to the operation of the
law on tenants, and showed the ad
vantages it would be to that class.
What benefitted the landlord natur
ally benefitted the tenant. Landlords
would provide pasturage for their ten
ants and be enabled to provide better
accommodations for their renters, at
more reasonable rates.
At the conclusion of the remarks of
Judge Hopkins, Mr. John I. Parker
suggested that if any gentleman pres-
ent'had views contrary to those ex
pressed by the speakers, he be heard,
and the chairman invited speakers.
Mr. Cox arose, but said be did not
come under the head of those opposed
to the law, altogether; he believed the
law should apply to the whole county
and not discriminate against any one.
Mr. Kenneth McLean, being called
for, made a stirring speech in favor of
the adoption of the no-fence law,
showing in a plain, practical manner
the many advantages and the justice
of the measure. His remarks were
well received and had a good effect.
He spoke of the advantages to be de
rived in the reciprocity of interest be
tween tenant and landlord, aud made
a telling and appropriate point when
he alludqd to the friendly feeling that
prevailed between tenant and land-
costs Towner, which would he cemented by
common interest and mutual protec
tion —the tenant looking after the in
terest of his landlord’s stock, and the
landlord protecting his tenant’s stock.
He made a pointed illustration of the
benefits derived from keeping up
stock, instancing an occurrence on his
own land to show the increased value
of hogs that had been kept enclosed
and those allowed to run at large and
root for a living. He alluded to the
additional revenue tbe land owners
would receive from renting lands now
necessarily set aside to grow timber
for fencing purposes, and that the
land owner could utilize this money,
now wasted on fences, in building
comfortable homes, barns, &c., &e.
Mr. Judge stated that he was in
favor of every man fencing in his
own cattle. He bad been a stock
raiser all his life, was a poor man and
had to rent land, and believed that
the landlord, if so disposed, could
render it unpleasant for his tenant, if
he was mean enough to do so, but his
experience taught him that stock
ought to be fenced in.
Mr. J. E. Lester r (who has a plan
tation in the no fence county, adjoin
ing us, of Leon, Fla.) spoke of the
effect of the law in that county. At
the outset it was looked upon unfa
vorably, but in a little while every one
favored it, and now would not change.
Mr. T. N. Hopkins, being called
for, stated that the meeting had been
pretty well talked to, but that it time
permitted, he would have alluded to
the legal aspect of the law as framed,
but in view of the late hour, he would
deter his remarks to some future time.
The meeting having been well en
tertained and conducted in the most
perfect good humor, and evidently to
the satisfaction of all, particularly the
large number of colored people, who
seemed to take a good deal of inter
est in the subject, and -who, by the
way, were frequently enlightened on
points of interest to them, by the sev
eral speakers, the chairman declared
the meeting adjourned.

union, is the wish of Miss Berta’s
many friends in Georgia.
The Proper Solution of the Question.
Elsewhere will be found the piocee-
dings of the Board of Health, at a
meeting held on the 29th ult. They
reccommend that the Stuart, Gulf,
jail, S., F. & W. Ry., and other par
ties, who may so desire, be given a
common sewer, commencing at Jack-
son street, and running down, or near,
tbe Parnell branch. This is the prop
er solution of the sewerage question
for the w4st side of Broad street.
The council has ordered the initial
part, of the work to be done. The
sewer can be extended in sections, as
was the main sewer on the east side of
Broad. The county will connect the
jail sewer with the main one, and will,
no doubt, bear its proportionate part
of the expense, as, without the co-ope
ration of Jhe town, it would have to
provide its own sewer.
The sewer will be ready, w$ pre
sume, for tbe Gulf to connect with it,
on the xst of Dec., when the hotel
