TI1E BLAIR EDUCATIONAL BILL.
GARLAND AND THE VAX-ELEC
We have heretofore looked with
great disfavor on the bill now pend
ing in congress, wheteby Uncle
Sam is to take upon his shoulders
the task of educating every child in
his broad domains, to the tune of
$7o,ooo,c X), and we cannot say that
we are any glutton about it yet; but
we are decidedly more favorable to
the proposition than sometime
back, and were we a member of
congress we believe that we would
vote for the Blair bill, in spite of its
Freedmen’s Bureauish tendencies.
This bill appropriates, in its present
form, seven million dollars the first
year, ten million the second, fil-
teen million the third, thirteen mil
lion the lourth, eleven million the
fifth, nine million the sixth, seven
million the seventh and five million
the eighth. This money is to be
distributed among the states and
territories on the basis of illiteracy
and no state or territory is to par
ticipate in the benefits of the bill
that does not provide a free school
system. Separate schools lor white
and colored are not reckoned a vio
lation ol this condition.
In speaking of the effects the pro
posed bill would have on Georgia,
School Commissioner Orr says:
"If the Blair bill passes I will he able
to run the public schools in Georgia from
tire to sis months in the year. The mon
ey would go a long way with us, because
under our state law only the elements of
an English education can be taught. The
cities of Georgia and the state now spend
a total amount of about I for pub
lic schools. The Blair bill proposes that
u stale shall raise as much herself as she
receives from the government. We
would not have to increase our state ap
propriation the first year, but would have
to increase it somewhat the second year.
I do not suppose we would succeed in
getting the legislature to appropriate
enough for us to get the full benefit of
the Blair bill the third year, as that would
take a million two hundred thousand, but
we would get as much from the govern
ment as we raised ourselves, and that
would be a big help to us.”
The impression is prevalent that
this bill is framed exclusively for
the education of the late slaves in
the South, and that this race alone
will reap the benefit. While the
education of the negro was doubt
less the principal object aimed at,
the whites will reap just the same
benefits as this race. There is no
denying the fact that the Blair bill,
if it becomes a law, will be of ma
terial benefit to the South in lifting
the dark cloud of illiteracy that has
hovered over our land since the
war, and that our people have been
too poor to rend. While this bill
will enlighten the negro, at the same
We have withheld from express
ing any opinion about the unfortu
nate connection of Secretary Gar
land and other prominent demo
cratic officials with the Pan-Elec
tric stock, through the hope that
these gentlemen would say or do
something, or that something might
“turn up,” that would vindicate
them. But it was a forlorn hope,
and at last we are reluctantly driven
into denouncing an act that had it
originated with members of the re
publican party, would have long
since received the condemnation of
the Southern press. While there
was nothing dishonest, from a strict
construction, in Garland & Co. re
ceiving that Pan-Electric stock as a
gift, when you closely investigate
the matter, it can be tortured into
nothing short of a sale of political
influence. It is well known that
had not Mr. Garland occupied the
position that he did, he would never
have been tendered that stock,
which required certain manipula
tion in the machinery of govern
ment to become valuable. As Bill
Arp says, when a public man gets
something for nothing somebody
must loot the bill, and it is gener
ally the people. Secretary Garland
has forever blasted liis chances for
promotion, has, we fear, seriously
injured his party, and is the first
public officer from the South in
Washington to cast a stain upon
the spotless and honored name of
our section. It has always been the
proudest boast of the South that

were stainless, and it was left for
Mr. Garland, of Missouri, to drop
the first blot. We think it wrong
and unjust to the South, and the
past history of its political leaders,
for the Southern press to try and
condone or cover up such ques
tionable conduct as Secretary Gar
land is guilty of. Let us show to the
world that while a black sheep has at
last been found amongus,wehave no
sympathy lor or affiliation with him,
and will be the (list to denounce his
acts. Mr. Randall writes the Au
gusta Chronicle from Washington
that Secretary Garland is sick and
annoyed, and he ought to be. We
wonder that he does not emulate
the noble example set by Judas Is
cariot and go out and hang himself.
He has disappointed and mortified
his people, and his name in the
South will ever be held in the
most supreme contempt. Had Sec-
retsry Garland been a private citi
zen, his receiving that stock as he
did would have been his own con
cern, and simply a question be
tween himself and his conscience.
But in the capacity of United States
senator, and afterwaidsa member of
the President’s cabinet, he repre
sented not himself alone, but his
party and his section, and any ques
tionable or wrong step taken by
him must fall upon the public
heads. He well knew that this hi?

white children that will teap the | gj ven him for a mere song through
advantages; and as to future
supremacy of the races, we are not
afraid for the Anglo-Saxon to en
counter the African, it matters not
what he has mental training. So
the proper way for the whites of
the South to reason this question is,
shall we stint our own children in
education, to keep in ignorance a
lot of negroes? As Piof. Orr says,
if Georgia did not inctease her
school fund one dollar, if the Blair
hill becomes a law, every child in
the state can have five or aix months’
tree tuition, instead ol three. What
a blessing will this be to the rural
neighborhoods, that are not able to
maintain schools from their own
means! Then take, lor instance, the
city of Athens, that will this sum
mer establish free schools. Why
the Blair bill will lessen its ex
penses exactly one-half—a saving ol
more than $50,000 in cash to our
tax-payers in the next eight years!
While the North is drawing her
millions upon millions from the
public treasury for pensions, the
South, while paying her portion ol
this fund, does not receive one dol
lar. If the Blair educational bill
passes, the greater part of this
$70,000,000 will come to our section,
and be distributed among our peo
ple. We are entitled to a share of
tne spoils, and this bill seems the
only way yet offered us to get it. Let
us not, through fear of elevating the
negro, miss such a golden opportu
nity. The truth is, we donot know
but what it is better to give the
masses ol our black population a
plain, common school education
befitting their sphere in life, as this
bill provides. We do not mein to
educate them above their condition
in file. General education would
put this race on an equality, and
thus prevent the few negroes who
manage to get through school from
exerting such great, and olten dan
gerous, influence over their people.
It would enable every man to think
for himself, and we believe the negro
might thus be moulded into a better
citizen. ’Tis worth the experiment,
anyhow. It is undoubtedly better
to have this whole race humbly ed
ucated, than here and there one,
with the great power for harm that
this knowledge gives the favored
few over their ignorant and super
stitious friends. An educated negro
will then be no rarity, and these
people will, we believe, be more
good will, but to secure his iufluence
as a United States officer. In ac
cepting it, Mr. Garland must have
known that he was endangering
the reputation of his section and
party;but his anxiety to reap for
tune without exertion was so great
that he did not stop to count the
probable cost. But the expose has
now come, covering this greedy of
ficer with shame, and*mantleing
the cheeks of the proud South for
the first time with the blush of mor
tification. We have no confidence
whatever in a man who wants to
get something lor nothing. Such a
character will always bear watch
ing, and we do not want them as
representatives of the Southern
States. If Secretary Garland has
not the decency to resign, and then
seek the wildest and most secluded
spot in the swamos of Missouri,
where he can forever hide his head
from the gaze of honest men, Pres

Washington, February 26.—Speaker
Carlisle’s opposition to the educational
bill has developed in the completion of
the house committee on education to-day
It had quite a lfvely session, in which
strong antagonism to the bill was devel
oped. Finally it was agreed, by a vote of
five to four, roport the bill favorably, but
soon afterwards two other members came
in, and their motion to reconsider and
postpone action was carried by a vote of
eight to three. Mr. Candler, of Georgia,
and Mr. Willis, of Kentucky, were the
most active advocates of the bill on the
final vote. The house committee may
agree to report the bill and allow the
house to consider it, but it is pretty plain
that the majority of the committee is
opposed to its passage.The most dangerous
move yet made against the measure was
the amendment proposed by Mr. Allison
in the senate to-day, which allows only
those states which :>ow apportion their
Educational fund on the basis of illiteracy
to participate in the benefits of tins act.
This amendment will not only indefinitely
prolong the debate in the senate, but will
give a sectional turn to the discussion. If
it is adopted the defeat of the bill will
be inevitable, but as no friend of the
measure will vote for Allison’s amend
ment, it is apt to be defeated in the senate
It will, in that event, be renewed in the

Two Balei of Cotton Raised In 1862 Put on
the Market. ;
Rock Hill Herald.
On Tuesday last Mr. R. E. Guth
rie, administer ot the estate of the
late J. Harvy Williamson, of Beth-
ester township, sold two bales of
cotton in this market which was
raised by slave labor on Mr; 'Wil
liamson s plantation in 1S62, nearly
a quarter of a century ago. On
account of the war there was no
satisfactory market for cotton, arid
of the crop raised that yet r, Mr.
Williamson stored several bale* un
der the house that the times might
improve. After the war had ended
and Sherman’s devastating march
through the South had sacked the
country of its live stock, Mr. Wil
liamson swapped three bales to the
late D. R. S. Blake for a mule. The
balance was retained. Afterwards
Mr. Williamson brought samples to
Rock Hill, and Mr. D. C. Roddey,
who was then in business here, of
fered him 33J cents per pound in
gold for it, but the offer was reject
ed and the cotton still retained. At
that time gold was at a premium of
50 per cent, hence Mr. Rodney’s
offer was equivelent to 50 cents per
pound in currency- Strangely
enough Mr. Roddey’s offer was re
jected. His death last fall found
it still unsold. Why he kept it so
long is a mystery that lies buried
The cotton was packed before
iron ties came into use and in the
days when there was no roping to
be had. Hickory withes were used
instead, and the original binding
still holds the bales firmly together,
and are in a good state of preserva
tion. The lint is as good as in 1S62
when the crop was gathered, and
classed midling. The cotton was
bought by Messrs. W. L. Rcddey
& Co., at cents per pound. A
rematkable circumstance is that on
the day it was finally sold the price
wasl lower than it had been since it
Beyond doubt it is the oldest cot
ton in he world. At any rate, it is
the only cotton raised by Southern
slave labor now in existence.
