Tho ISeporicr. K-NTEKED AT THE. I'OST OFFICE IN DAN BURT, AS SECOND CLASS MATTKIt. PKI'PER ,j SOSS, rubi. and Proya. THURSDAY, JUNK 9, 1881. CUMBINA TIONS. We called atteution to this subject in a former number ol tho REPORTER, but as wo think it n very important subject, and one in which tho people ot the coanty aro very materially interested, hope we will bo excused for again rtfer ing to it Look where we will, at me'n engaged in tbe different trades, fallings, or pro fessions, in the pursuit of health, h»fpi ness or money making. We find that in almost every occupation, followed by mo chanios, tradesmen and professiouaiists, combinations lormed among themselves for their own protection and Letiefit There &re combinations in the nianufau ture of almost every article we can think of, mechanics form combination) to in crease their wages ; doctors have e-tab lished rates of charges per mile, agreed upon among themselves ; lawyers have certain fixod lees, by which they will drain tho pockets of their unfortunate clients; and so on through the whole list. Dut tho poor old farmer, the stay, the maiospring, the foundation of the whole concern, goes plodding on alone, doing the dtudgery fur all, and while the others are all really dependent upon him, so acts as to bo dependent upon every body else. Me sweats and delves away, complaining of his hard lot, mere ly eking out a meagre existence, while • others sitting back in the shade, are making fortuues off his labor, lie sin gle handed and alone, i 3 battling with tho scores of combinations, whose busi ness it is to fix prices for him, and reap the rcwaid of his labor. Who is to blame for this state of things ? We an swer the farmer, he has no one to biamc bat himself Here in this Country ho stakes all on a crop of tobacco ; further south on a crop of ootton, and what is the result, the little money he gets for his eroo must go to the merchant lor western bacon, or flour, or for northern dotting, with the profits to. probably three or lour middle men, aided to tho exorbitant price paid in the first p'ace lo some heavy monopoly, while his sugar, coffee, and all other necessities 89 well as luxuries, costs him 20 to 10 per cent more than thoy should. It', like others he would form combinations that would enable him to govern prices. Aud what of the farmers products, well he is in such % fix that be must t ke just such prices as these monopolies and rings in ether trades choose to give him Take the article of leat tobacco, our great staple, and the only monay crop we have, the farmer is completely at tho mercy of tbe manufactcring railroad towns; one says not ; if my tobacco dees not bring the prico that I want for it I will hold it over. Well, what advantage will that be, suppose you do hold it over, one, two or three years, when you do sell you must haul it away to some railroad town or city, there is nobody else to buy, ntid you must tako just whatever you can get for it. What then, is to be done ? in the first place raise more bread and meat, and less cotton and tobacco, let the farmers of the south form combinations, build cotton factories, spn and weave their own cotton, erect factories all ov> r the oountry, and manufacture their own tobacco, put their mites together, and buy their groceries at wholesale in large quantities, hire sotna one to sell them to share holders, or any body else, and then when they go to the stote to buy five or ten pouods of sugar or coffee for their family use, they pay a per cent on it, but not to tbe village merchant, they pay the per cent to themselves Thus, they have the use of their money as they need it, and at the same time get interest on it. For instance, you put §25 00 in n combination of this kind, you do not need that amouut in groceries at one time, yon go to your own store, (lor you liavs an interest in it) and buy what you need, you pay 10 to 25 per cent on what yon get, you would have this to pay if th* goods were bought el a merchant, but in that case you would pay tho per cent to him, while in this caso, you pay it to yonr self. Fifty farmers pulling in SIOO 00 each, gives a capital slock of §5.000, 20 per oent on this is 81 000, then suppose you turn your ptotk four times in the year, you have a profit of $4 ,000, allowing §I,OOO for clerk hire, bouse rent, &o . and we lia.ro a net profit of S3,000; it it not better to kaep that amount of money in the neighborhood, among tbe farmers, than to send it away never to be seen again We only make these suggestions, hoping that they may be improved and acted upon We are 1 witb and among the of this country, and his interest is ouis SAO. It fails to our lot ibia wse'i to chroni i ele another of those diabolical acts, whioh i loo common in th s county. : Another of oar best citizens shot to death l in the discharge of his dutj. The eir ! eumstanoca are these : List Wednesday evening deputy sher iff Kites, ion of the sheriff, summoned a posse of the citizens in and around Danbury, for what purpose, no ono knew —but everything being in readiness. Kites and his posse being joined by de j puty sheriff Halter and a posso that he hud summoned on tha south side of the mountain ; the two deputies accompanied : by men left Danbury about 11 o'clock at night, after traveling most of the re mainder of the night, draw up just at day break around th* house of Mr. J. P Smith, i* th* northern part of the county. The object being to arrest one or two of his song. Deputy l>akor was stationed a short distance from tho house, w!r«n deputy Kites weut into tbe house, aroused the family, i»ade known his bus iness; but oni of the boys, Je-se Smith was at the boas*, he soon pissed out. t.hc ; back door accompanied by some of the female members of the family, gointr along a pass way between the house and kitchen, jucip«d off and ran, some of the men halted him nut he paid no at tention to th?w until ho came to Mr F. J. iJakfr, who was standing within a few feet nf the path along which he was ! ruining, when vithin a few feet of Baker without making any halt he fired a pis. tol carrying about a No. 40 ball, the bill striking Mr. liaker nsnr tha point of the hip hone, ranged down, passed through I his abdomen, cams out jog?. above the ! groin, entered the thigh, passed around ; the bono and lodged just under tbe sk in. ' Mr. Dak*r fell as soon us shot, when the ! uieu gathered a.ound him, only to wit ness his suffering without being able to ! give any relief. He lived about five, hours in the greatest agony, when death ended his suffering. Thus passed away one of Stokea conn ; tics best and tucst useful men. Mr | Baker leaves a wife and nine children, j ail small, to mourn his loss. Many were | the tears of real sympathy dropped by his numerous fiieuds when the sad intel ligence reached them, "Frank is dead !'' We have known Frank Daker from boy hood, never knew hiui to commit a mean act, but found hiui ever oa th* side of right and justice. In the war he was a good soldier, an entire stranger to fear and was well beloved by bis companions in arms Dut, alas! poorFiank is gone. May lie who ''tempers the wind to tho shorn lambs," deal gently witll bis widow and little orphan children Comment on this case appears useless, it has been but a few weoks since we gave oar views as to the manner ia which the law was executed in Stokes, and be lieve now that this case is the result of | letting men off by paying costs, and something like a double fee to prosecut ing officers, when tlisy bad commuted t'ne most diabolieai crimes, and lor which they should have received the severest punishment. Thero ere four murderers at large from this coanty, each of whom have shot his man dead, and as many more desperate characters whose deeds would entitle them to the epethet of first class out laws. We have only to add, that if the law in Stokes is not more faithfully executed, the time is not f»r distant when we may expect to be overrun by a band of outlaws more des peritto than the tlenry Darrv Lowery clan. Press Association. The People's Press says : At a meet ing held in the Court-house fur the purpose of making arraagemonts for tho entertainment of tho members of the N C Proas Association, tho following geullrmen were appointen Committees to make all necessary arrangements for the occasion : From Winston —S, 11.

In the moantiuie Mr Davis leaves his plantation in Mis siaippi, for a trip to Canada, th it ho may be on her Majesty's soil the day his book is brought out in England. This is in order tj severe (he English copy rijjht Worth Considering. The present high price of bacon and pork susjjests the question whether we j are likely to see these articles of food fall back to the low prices which pre vailed a few years ago. The present j high price is not dne to the.foroign de mand The governuietits of Kurope I have legislated agaiust tho introduction i of tho hog prodnet3 of America, and the { public priss there has contributed to the nrejudice which has influenced the ao tion of the governments The immense homo consumption is the cause of the rresest high price of h"g meats, 'l'he prejudice now prevailing in Europe j against Americnti me t will sonu p m away. Aad then with trauspo 1 - tion cheap and suiiu lly growing chc per Europe will demand incrc sing suppli of American m t. Resides this, the influx of iui!ci ;ran into this i» now greater than at any former pciiod, and the countiy is developing rapidly. All the-e ciicums nces poiat to IT SUB 1 tained tnarke still higher price for ! hog products Meantime the S uth has become dr- I pendent on the Northwest for hacou and ! iarJ, and the • c on crop is reiied on to j furnish the nic ns for footing the bills N>w it Rsetns to ho admitted that the : supply of co»oo is likely to bo greafer I than tho demand There is a prospect | th&t 7 500.000 bait• will be produced this yc..r. This overproduction will, we frar, exert a dcpre> ing influence on the I uiarkut. NY hat then is the policy of the ottnn planters ? It seems to u ' that prudence diet lea that gitatcr at j tention be bestowed on the produo'ion jof moat. The effect of such a ours ■ wilt be twofold It will increase the • supply of home made tnc t, and make the cokton planter more independent. And it will diminish the amount of cot j too produced and thereby improve the market. It would, in our opinion, be a j stfe presumption for the cotton planter to act on, that bacon is to rule in price hereafter, and that it will be cheap ! er for him to raise a considerable por I tion, if not all, the meat requited for t home consumption, than to buy it.— I Fayctleville Examiner. The following is a i»»od showing for | New Orleans.
