HnzMon, June'l. After being appar

among many of the residents of that

"Do you not think," said one of the
ablest and best known physicians In
Western New York, who had been
prompted to raise the question by what
he had seen during his rides In the city

"that the wheel Is Introducing a laxity
In the relations of the sexes that has
not been tolerated heretofore?" Very
often do I see instances of freedom per
mitted to young men and women with
wheels that would not be tolerated for
a moment under other circumstances.
So much am I impressed by the possi

to the matter and invite discussion."
It Is with great pleasure that we com

question that the wheel has Introduced
an unusual degree of freedom in the

young man any considerable distance
without other company is allowed to
take a bicycle trip with him out Into

come back until after dark. But

has been abused, it Is Impossible for us
to say. Whether steps should be taken

In consideration of the present ns
naulta upon South Carolina's dispen
sary system, Senator Tillman, was
asked a day or two ago by tho New
York Sun to give a statement of the de
velopment and Justification of tho law
from his iolnt of view. He said:
"The prohibition sentiment, always
strong In South Carolina, had been
growing stronger, and It seemed' a po
litical necessity In 1892 that something
should be done to recognize It. Ac
cordingly, in August of that year, In or
der to prevent a split In the new Dem
ocracy of the state, boxes were placed
at the primaries and voters were asked
to vote on tho question of prohibition
or no prohibition. Strictly speaking,
It was not an issue, but an abstract
proposition merely. Prohibition re
ceived a little short of 40,000 no prohi
bition received a little under 30,000
(which, you see, was a majority of
about 10,000 for prohibition) and some
20,000 voters did not vote at all. This
was a sufficient cue for tho General
Assembly which met that fall, and a
stringent prohibition bill, containing
what seemed to the prohibition leaders
to be the best features of tho Maine,
Iowa, and Kansas laws was put ln
to be amended somewhat and to pass
the Houso easily. It did not reach the
senate until at week before adjourn
ment. I bad pointed out as governor
the Impossibilities of enforcing pro
hibition, and had spoken of the dispen
sary system then and still In operation
in A'thens, Ga., as a possible model for
us. The consequence was that Sena
tor John Gary Evans of Aiken, later
governor, Introduced a dispensary bill
proposed by myself, with tho house
prohibition measure as a basis, which
was substituted for the house bill. It
was rushed through, the house had no
time to amend It, and naturally It pos
sessed many defects; but It has worked
better than Its most sanguine sup
porters could have believed.
THE PLAN DESCRIBED.
"The state buys and owns all liq
uors until they are sold to the con
sumer. All persons are forbidden to
traffic In any kind of distilled or malt
liquors, but the state Is authorized to
establish dispensaries for their sale.
A Mate board of control supervises
tho business, a chief dispenser pur
chases the supplies of liquor and fills
the requisitions of local dispensers. In
the various counties. These county dis
pensaries remain open from 8 n, m. to
6 p. m. every day except Sundays and
legal holidays; liquor is sold in pack
ages of one-half a pint to Ave gallons,
and beer Is siold In pint bottles. All
bottles are supposed to have the palm
etto tree blown in them and to bear a
label with the seal and the motto of
the state upon It. Liquor cannot be
sold to minors or habitual drunkards,
and the package must not be opened
upon the premises where It Is bought.
If a. stranger deslre3 to buy liquor or
beer, he must be Identified by some re
sponsible local person. He fills out an
application, giving Ms age and resi
dence, and stating the amount which
he desires to purchase, without desig
nating the use to which ho Intends to
put It. A person can purchase distilled
liquor only once a day, but he can buy
beer as many times as he likes
In a given day. The Dispensary law
contains all the safeguards against the
Illicit eale of liquor which the Prohi
bitionists have been able to hit upon
In forty years, and we have learned
many others from experience. Those
who want liquor, or who need It, can
get It, as free American citizens.
There Is no pretence at performing im
possibilities." "Just how did you find the law to
HOW IT WORKS.
"Well, it went Into effect July 1, 1893.
The night before, every bar in the state
had closed Its doors. Of course, we
had been planning for months, to man
age so Important a business, but no
ope had any Idea of Its magnitude. All
of the legal whiskey trafltc of the state
was turned to the capital as a source
of supply. In Columbia a big hall, 165
by 35 feet and' three stories high, was
made the location for the state dis
pensary. Fifty or sixty employes,
working ten hours a day, were kept
busy bottling liquor which the state
chemist had examined and approved.
Of course, great quantities of liquor
had been put in stock beforehand, and
naturally many trains brought into the
state, after the law was enforced, much
contraband liquor. But, crude as the
law was, and hard as was the opposi
tion of the liquor dealers and their
friends on the one hand and of the
crank Prohibitionists on the other, it
was admitted to be an almost Instant
success. Tho state dispensary was
soon found to be more than self-sustaining.
In July twenty-nlno dispen
saries were opened and running; In
August thirty-eight; In September,
forty-seven; In October, fifty-one. The
salaries of local officers ranged from
$300 to $1,000 a year. The cheapest
grade of whiskey was sold at $3 a
gallon. In seventeen of our chief
towns 570 arrest a for drunkenness
were reported in July and August, '92,
and only 2S3 In July and August, '93.
In September, '92, these same towns
reported 230 arrests for drunkenness,
and In September, '93, only 126."
"Other results which might perhaps
bo called social must have been notice
able?" OTHEU RESULTS.
"Yes, sir," Mr. Tillman replied. "A
pure article was guaranteed, and the
consumer got full measure of stand
ard strength. There was no considera
tion of personal profit, and hence no
inducement to force sales. The bottla
was not opened on tho premises and
Whence treating was Impossible, and the
i' liquor was sold only in the daytime.
Moreover, the appetizing adjuncts of
Ice, sugar, lemons, &c, were absent.
The liquor was sold for cash only, there
were no weekly slates standing against
the workingman till pay day, and he
took his wages home. There were two
other great social Improvements. The
keepers of gambling places, pool roorrai,
and dives found their business practic
ally wiped out, and the local political
rings which usually control elections
in municipalities found themselves
shorn of tho power usually wielded by
the saloonkeepers. The Irglslature
bullded better than It knew. The price
of liquor was not made high enough
so that tho bllrtdi tiger or the wrltur
gllng In of liquor was' made profitable,
and It was also low enough eo that tho
stato mado no great profit, ftndi what
there -Was went to tho reduction of the
general tax. The profits of tho liquor
dealer wero saved to tho consumer,
who could give the money to his fam
l'y. The prollt now goes to tho free
school fund. In tho old days at my
homo In Edgefield Cdurt House thero
would bo gathered on tho salo days in
January and February perhaps eight
hundred or a thousand men from tho
country, and I regret to say that any
where from fifty to two hundred of the
men would go home drunk. On my re
turn to Edgefield after the Dispensary
law was in operntlon I attended one
of these sales. It was a cause- of re
mark that not a drunkard had been
"Thero must have been great opposi
tion to the enforcement of the law?"
"There was, indeed. Some citizens in
the towns onoosed it because their tax
es had been increased by the failure of
license money. Of course, tho liquor
dealers and their friends, all hoped to
see' It fall. Hard aB this opposition
was, tho antagonism of the old Btato
officers and their friends, who had been
turned out of power by the new regime,
was twice as hard; but that was pure
ly political, and in the face of tho bene
ficial results of the law all these have
been obliged to give away."
AS TO DRUNKENNESS. '
"Yes, sir; and I could quote you from
the message of Gov. Evans submitted
to the general assembly In February,
1896, to prove this. Ho addressed a let
ter to the various mayors of the state,
asking them If drunkenness and crime
and the consumption of whiskey had
Increased or decreased under the dis
pensary plan, what the number of
plain cases of drunkenness had been
compared with the previous condition
and also what the general effect of the
dispensary law had been upon tho
peace and good order of their towns.
It appeared from these reports that
drunkenness had decreased for the en
tire state 57 per cent, that the num
ber of cases tried In mayors' courts
for drunkenness and disorderly conduct
had decreased over 66 per cent., and
that the consumption of whiskey had
decreased nearly 48 per cent. Gov.
Evans nlso pointed out in his message
that the dispensary law had caused
a great moral reform. The tempta
tions for the youth of the stato Had
been swept away, and the Influences
of the saloon keeper in elections
also. During the last holiday season
thero had been but one homicide In the
state, a record hitherto unheard of, and
that was the result of an old feud. It
had been the custom of the colored
people, he said, to drink to excess on
circus days, but the dispensary Is al
ways closed on such occasions and the
crowds are now sober. Moreover, the
sale of liquor by the state was con
stantly on the Increase, which pr,oved
not that more liquor was drunk In the
Btate, but that the Illicit sale was fast
decreasing. The net profits of the sys
tem operated under the medium price
list that I spoke of was over a quarter
of a million dollars. Gov. Evans
praises tho law unqualifiedly. It re
moves the temptation from the young
and will eliminate drunkenness more
and more, and, as I have said. It Is
even causing the old toper to control
his appetite so that he can Indulge
himself now and then. Gov. Ellerbe In
his message of last January Is hardly
less enthusiastic In support of the dis
OTHER STATES CURIOUS.
"Oh, yes; North Carolina Is beginn
ing to adopt It locally, and in North
Dakota and other Western States they
are discussing its advisability. I be
lieve that it will be adopted by many
Senator Tillman makes no apology
for his connection with the dispensary
law. It Is easy to see that he Is veiry
proud that he had to do with Us
passage and execution. He is not less
proud, however, of three other depar
tures which signalized his term as gov
ernor of South Carolina, which his
friends consider very Important, if not
historic. One Is the adoption of the
new constitution, by which, with Its
educational qualification, the negro Is
disfranchised and It Is not necessary
any longer to cheat him out of his bal
lot. Another Is the establishment of
two industrial schools, each success
ful, with Its complement of about 400
students. The third Is the emancipa
tion of "the people" from the "aris
tocracy" as expressed In the Tlllmanlte
