CHEROKEE NOT INCLUDED.
Forced to Specify, Senator Tillman
Makes Another Exception.
"At this time, by elections
held under the Brice act, 15 h
counties in the Stato are enjoy- B
ing the blessings of prohibition S
(?)..Let every man who rea.s I
a newspaper printed in those A
counties search its columns and fc
see the advertisements of Whis- ti
key houses outside the State .... 0
Turn to the editorial pages of
the newspapers and see constant tc
allusions to the "blessings of w
prohibition," "quietude," "free- rc
dotu from drunkenness," "peace N
and good order" that are pro- ti
claimed... Upon the whole a man a(
would be very much edified to P
know how much money flows tb
into the coffers of these journals ti
from whiskey advertisements, I
while the same papers are ex- ci
poitiIng prohibition and sobriety." ci
We confess that we did nct
read Mr. Tillman's manifest ii
throughout, and our reason for Ti
not doing so was because we had NV
become thoroughly disgusted k,
with the brand of argument the eu
senator was putting up in behalf m
of the dispensary. We left the D4
State for several days and on
our return had our attention di
rected to the above paragraph.
Believing that Mr. Tillman had
written harshly and without due th
cons ideration of the facts, and su
rather than attempt to make him th
appear in a false light before the bi
people of this county, we took su
it upon ourselves to address him se
what we consider to be a very7 th
courlteous, but firm letter, in su
which we asked if he meant to cc
include Cherokee and the papers fa
published in this county, es- og
pecially The Ledger, in the char- Sj
ges lie made. In reply to our
inquiry we received a very terse- S
epistle in which the senatoxe
attempts to ridicule us for asking .
the question, but he goes on to n
"My address was necessarly T
couched in general terms and i be
neither included nor excluded el
any papers, leaving the residents ap
of each county to make examina--t
tion for themselves and see jus: ef
how far the statement applied. wi
... Cherokee is eminently sobe:e tr;
with no drunkenness, and its th
brand of prohibition is genuine, an
The Ledger and its valiant editor
were not mentioned-then, wha A
are you kicking about?"
Of course the senator means A
ridicule in that last sentence, bu:
when he facetiously says tha: ;s
Cherokee is eminently sober he in
comes nearer telling the truth gr
than intended. We were kicking ed
about being included in a general
statement that was wholly untrue
so far as we were concerned and
thought we w. re doing Mr. Till
man a kindness in giving him an
opportunity to exclude The
?4 4 er from his list rather thar
o take him to task for saying
.oething we reaty didno
cimck he meant t - nav. At any .a
rate, we have foiced him to make
an ex< eption i., the case ofit
Cherokee and The Ledger, and
we are therefore satisfied. -
