SOIII?- ol our contemporaries seem
to be worried because Governor Man
ning has not signed tho new whiskey
act passed by the legislature
We have had no intimation of t'au
governor's position in this matter.
Ho ia evidently giving the act serious
consideration us lt lias been held u|t
for more than a month ?Ince thu leg
islature adjourned, and whatever ac
tion he finally takes will be dictated
by a sincere desire to do what ls best
for the people 61 the atute. Wc have
no doubt of that.
Thu prohibitionists themselves are
divided on the wisdom of approving
this act, und it ls lo be doubled wheth
er lt will prove us pood an Instrument
of temperance as tho gullon-a-mont!:
law passed al the lill."? session. Th:
reduction o? tho amount each person
can order a month lo two.qunrts is ?.1!
right, hut a fatal defeat of the act
may be found In the liberal allowance
for beer-a barre! a month or a t|-i.irt
a day. Whiskey coull be shipped lu
te- the slate under the guise of beer,
and nobody would be the wiser un
less the officers made the discovery.
Here iles the great danger ol' the act.
and the danger ls- not altogether re
moved by the requirement that the
beer bo labeled as such.
A large majorilj of the people of
Soulh Carolina,If the vole of last
September is to he taken as an Ind ;x
or feeling, hus decreed thal prohibi
tion of the liquor traille Is the best
policy for the state to pursue. We
think the people voted right, uud for
that reason we want no stumhlin ;
block placed in tho path of the tem
por?neo c. nise iii South Carolina.
If Governor Manning vetoes the new
act, ho will get no censure from UH.
Wo arc inclined to think that he wi*.'
be doing thc proper (?lng .
lu tho press ot tho "state the ques
tion of abolishing the biennial coiinly
to- county camp*., tn has been rather
freely discussed, and opinion seems to
bo sharply divided on this issue.
Tho abuse ot the Soulh Carolina
primary system arises perhaps iron
! Its freedom from restrictions-a free
dom that ls absolutely democratic und
permits any man to enter the Huts
and como beforo tho people will a
I discussion of lils views. Our prl
I mary system is uniquo In thal il has
pructlcully no (restrictions on cu
tranco requirements. South Carolina
was ono of the pioneer states in in
augurating primary reform, und the
system, In spite of Its numerous
abuses, has worked generally in the
interest of the people. In most oth
er states a prospective candidate can
not get his nuuiu before tho voter?
unless be first gets an endorsement
from a small percentage of the elec
torate petitioning that his numo bc
carried on the ballot. Thero is merit
in ihi.'. providion, and in our state
annie reform of tho kind might servv*
to purga tho eloctlons of some of
their objectionable features.
Uut watever may bo the ben
course to p.irsuo in order to save the
primarj' system mid make it a means
of educating the public on vital issues
of the day, it would bc unwise this
year to make any change. In the
event that" the county-to-county can
vass ip' abolished at the May conven
tion of toe party, tho motives and
purposes of thoso whoso leadership
brought. about Uio chungo would be
mlscontrued and the matter would in
stantly become au acute issue of the
campaign. There would follow the
inevitable ?charge, given color if not
substance, that tho prevailing side or
faction did not caro to have a full
and free discussion of issues and,
therefore, desired to muddy tho wa
Tho May convention will do wisely
to stand pat on t'.'.c rules for tho pres
ent, and in another two years per
.haps, if the political atmosphere
clears and the vision of the people
is not dimmed by the pleas and ac
cusations ot designing men, a change
may be accomplished that will make
the primary a surer moans of elect
ing candidates of true and tried abili
ty and character than lt has proven
at times in recent years.
Hasty action now may work a
great deal of harm to tho stato. The
only safe rulo by w?Jch popular gov
ernment may always bu secured is lo
require candidates seeking ohlco to
come Into the, closest possible con
tact with tho voters, and this can be
done in no better way than by a pri
mary system with a minimum or.?re
strictions on em;ance requirements.
