l>r. l'o|?e*M Strength.
Dr. I'ope still raves about lils defeat for Uovo-rwu.
mid i? mav bo that he honestly believes |
that he had some strength before the people.
The figures on their face indicate that he had.
But if we go beneath the surface and look
for the facts, wej believe it will be found that
he had, of himself, almost no strength at all.
He represented the anti-dispensary element,
or, possibly more correctly speaking, he ran
iu opposition to the dispensary- law. That
was a declared principle iu his platform, and
any other man would have likely received
the same vote that he did, If he had run as
Dr. Pope did, in opposition to the dlspeusary
A hasty glance at the tabulated vote of the
counties, we think, proves beyond the shadow
of a doubt that Dr. Pope's following was
lrom among the opponents of the dispensary.
Where the opposition to the dispensary was
most pronounced, lie received his largest vote.
Turn to the figures which appear iu another
part of this paper, and satisfy yourself.
See Charleston, Greenville. Richland, Spartanburg.
These four counties, or cities, gave
Dr. Pope about one-third of all the votes that
But, as a matter of course, the dispensary
had opponents everywhere, and we presume
that they gave expression to that opposition
by voting for Dr. Pope. Others voted for Dr.
Pope for various reasous.
Taking the election returns as a whole, It
was a great victory for the dispensary. The
antl-dlspensary candidate was defeated by a
majority of over twenty thousand?being
about double the majority which the prohibitionists
polled over the license system at the
Dr. Pope's signal defeat when running on
the dispensary question, Indicates that the
dispensary is strong with the people.
While Dr. Pope has a following which Is
strong and powerful, yet the law has the approval
of the people, and it will stand.

Don't Get Drunk in the Forenoon.
It is not in good form to get drunk iu the
forenoon. Well bred people wait until the
evening to get full of wine. Even in the olden
times it was considered a reproach or a
blot on one's gentility to get drunk iu the
forenoon, and Peter on one occasion defended
his friends from such imputation. In reply
to the charge that "these men are full of new
wine," he said:
"For theseare not drunken, as we suppose,
seeing it is but the tnird hour of the day."
Peter couldn't believe 'that his genteel
friends would get drunk in the forenoon,
