The Subject Being Liquor.
The fact Is that a great number of good citicens
of South Carolina are striving to curtail
the liquor traffic in South Carolina.
Opposed to their eflorts are all the barroom
crowd, tbe prohibitionists, and a considerable
number of preachers.
We can understand how a barroom man
can conscientiously and honestly oppose the
dispensary. It interferes with his business,
which he considers as legitimate as any
Hut the reasons which iuduce prohibitionists
and preachers to align themselves with
the saloon mea have not been discovered by
us. It has been said that politics makes
strange bedfellows. Well now if saloonkeepers,
prohibitionists and preachers do not
make a strange combination we would like
to know bow such a thing could be gotten up.
However honest and however innocent the
prohibitionists may be in their, combination
with the saloon men it must be admitted
that they are all practically working for
the same thing, namely: The repeal of the
dispensary law and the flooding of (his
country with free liquor.
They may not be aware of the fact
that they are making figures of themselves
before the people by their unholy alliance
with the llauor element
Notwithstanding tho fact that it has been
asserted time and again that Simonton had
killed the dispensary, and that public sentiment
against the dispensary was gaining,
yet we believe that the people are as steadfast
and as true as possible to the best liquor
law that we have ever had. The responses to
the News and Courier is assuring, and there
need be no doubt that the decent people or
South Carolina will resent the attempted
rule of this 6t&te by the foreign liquor dealers
and their agents.
South Carolina rose in her might and threw
off the yokeof the rule of the alien in 1876 and
we think there Is enough of that spirit left in
the State to resent the Judicial Interference
with our laws by the liquor dealers of other
Either our own people, or foreign liquor
dealers must rnle South Carolina. Which
shall it bet
Will a people who won Buch Tenown In
war, sacrifice private character and public
respect, by submitting to the rule of western
distillers of corn liquor? This is a land of
bibles and schoolhouses, and not the conquered
and abject territory of the foreign
Is This Despotism or Tj runny ?
At the protest of citizens of Hogatisville,
Georgia, tbe President of the United States
appointed an objectionable person as postmaster
of that place. That objectionable person
was a negro. Whether the objection was
raised because of the character, or because of
an]y special disqualification, or simply because
he was a negro is not stated.
But no matter whether the objection
was reasonable or unreasonable, the Presi.
dent of tbe United States should respect tbe
will of the people. It is their right to expect
consideration at the bands of tbe President.
If this country is a pocket borough of the
President, and it be may put bis beel on the
necks of tbe people, we ought to know it.
The question of the fitness or unfitness of
tbe applicant for the appointment of post,
master should not have been considered,
when the fact was known that the people did
not want him.
The opposition was so great that the negro
was shot, and the whole community are suspected
of more or less criminality in tbe act.
Imagine, if you can, a more outrageous act
on tbe part of any President.
The presumption on the part of the President
in charging the community?with sym
ivi tuc ^/ci^ontxivir ui iue crime, pre-|
sumes the knowledge on the part of the i
President that he was violating the proprieties
and decensies of his office by sending a
postmaster who was so distasteful as to in"
The President has the army and navy at
his command. He has the legal right to
worry and outrage the sentiment of the
people, and he has the power to punish them
for the legitimate wrath which his own out
rageous conduct may arouse.
To settle the question of competency to fill
the office was the President's duty. The
question as to whether the individual was
desired, was for the people to decide.
The Czar of Russia would no doubt have
more respect for his subjects than to appoint
an objectionable postmaster.
we learn that there Is kicking on the part
of some of the citizens In the newly acquired
territory of this school district, because of the
debt on the school house. While we know
nothing of the law on the subject, yet it
would seem that all the property of the
school district should bear its part of the burdens.
We know of no equity which would
give the school house to the whole district
and require a part of the district to assume
the whole debt. The school house belongs to
the whole district. The tax to pay the teachers,
like the tax to pay for the school house,
> should be borne by all.
It would seem that the duty of the Auditor
Is plain. He should charge up tbe tax. and
then if he errs in this way the court can
rectify his acts. The dissatisfied citizen
should take legal steps to obtain his rights.
x The court is unbiased and will likely render
a decree that would make it clear to every
An Object LeNNun.
Hardworked country editors who write
weekly a half column of long;primer, and clip
columns ofjmatter,from daily newspapers, can
find an object lesson in the work of Miss
Mary Hemphill, Editor of the Abbeville
Medium. Resides writing columns of ed.
ltorlals and locals, she sets type, arranges the
forms and makes up the mails. Last Wednesday
the new advertisements which ap
peared In the paper, kept her and her young
lady type-setters hard at work until nearly
daylight next morning. She has a corps of
' young ladies, who set type of the plain reading
sort, but when it comes to se'ting advertisements
Miss Hemphill does that herself
The young ladies of the Medium office are
faithful workers and never flinch when there
is a rush of business.
