The city council of Charleston
has granted liquor licenses for the
year 1893 just as though thfro
had been no prohibition law passad,
with this saving clause, that if the
courts knocked up the city license
the bar-room men should have_no
redress against the city. A very
wise proceeding on the part of the

same thing, and wo suppose Edge

And Richland County steps up
and say s she will take liquor '
straight in her'n for the next twelve 1
months, whether the- law permits
it or not. Both Charleston and 1
Richland, it appears to us, are
entirely too previous. Better wait 1
and seo what the courts will do '
about that dispensary bill.- You
can't butt against law and the peo- '
pie of a State. There are thousands .
of voters who may not favor the
Evans bill, but, when it comes to 1
enforcing the laws of their State, 1
will not endorse such highhanded
methods as municipal rebellion
against clearly defined statutes.
One thing the nev law settles
and that is that the saloon must go.
The gilded bar roo ms, pitfalls
for the feet of sb many boys and
young men, will soon be a thing of
the past in South Carolina. This
chief temptation to intemperance
among young and old will thus be 1
removed from our borders, we trust
never to return. The inveterate
drunkard and the habitual tippler J
will continue to drink-as they 1
doubtless would under any law- :
but the youth of our State, let us 1
hope, will be saved from the
curse of rum. With this hope,

"It is not what we asked for,
but wo are satisfied with it," said
Mrs Sallie F. Chopin in response
to a question as to how the Pro
hibitionists liked the State rum
shop scheme passed during the
recent session of the Legislature,
"We think it is a long step in
the right direction," she continued.
"y?z see the bar room men don't
like it, and so we know there must
be some good in it. You see, we
are like the boarding house keeper
who found out what her boarders
did not like, and then gave them a
plenty of it.
"We are willing togivo the new
law a fair trial, and propose to see
that it is enforced. You can say
that the Women's Christian Tem
perance Union all ovrr the State
will work harder this year than
ever before, and will try to prove
the Evans Act a good law."
BILL AND JIM.
Bill and Jim were in town on
Monday of this week, salesday,
and got together as they always do
when in Edgefield on the Bame day.
Jim comes from the Sodom portion
of our county, and Bill hails from
over "beyant" Choty, in the Skip
pers, Ga. section of the Republic.
Jim-"Why, Bill, old feller, I
haven't seen you since Tillman
was a-runnin'. How's things
Bill-"Well, Jim, everything is
lovely. Politically, wo Reformers
are in the swim, and Reform is
riding on the crest of the wave
like a duck swooping down upon a
Jim-"You're talkin'. But, Bill,
what do you thiuk of the prohibi
tion law just passed by our Legis
lature? Do you think it will hold
Bill-"I think the law a good
one, yet the wisdom and goodness
of it must all be determined by
its administration and enforce
ment. Pope says:
For forms of government let fools
What's best administered is best."
Jim-"Did Pope say that? I
didn't know he was a poet. If
Pope Hagood said that Gov. Till
man ought to tum Dan Tompkins
off and make Pope his private
secretary. But Bill, what is there
so good about this prohibition
business, I'd like to know. The
world has been trying to have pro
hibition for a long time, and so
far as I have seen it has been a
failure every time. Liquor is a
hard horse to curry. Liquor men
are the hardest sort of men to
Bill-"You are right, my friend.
The liquor evil is a hard one to
mauage, but to chain the lightning
was a still harder feat fifty years
ago, yet to-day electricity is in the
harness and runs throughout all
the laud and under the sea, doing
the will of man. If this great
force of nature, God's own direct
creation, can be made a friend and
servant, why cannot man control
his own handiwork, alcoholic dis
Jim-"I don't doubt but that the
liquor business can be controlled,
but what I asked you was : What
good is there-to come out of the
liquor law just passed by the Leg
"Bill-"Well, Jim, I'm coming to
that, I only wanted to get your .ad
Having got that admission, I will
The law. recently passed recog
nizes and is based upon tho fact,
that the keystone to the arch in
the liquor traffic is the individual
profit to the person selling the
liquor lu the law now on the
statute books, which goes into
operation July 1st, the seller or
dispenser, does not realize any
thing from the sales-not a single
solitary cent. This salary is paid
by the State. This profit to the
seller from the sale of liquors, be
ing the most important support of
the liquor business, is knocked
from under by our new law. It
will also do away with , bar-rooms
and their allurements and entice
ments, thus is another leg knocked
aut. The social habit, the con
vivial instinct, which causes men
to seek bar-rooms when they go to
towns, must uuder this prohibi
tion law find exercise in another
form, thus is the third leg knocked
from under the liquor business.
Another good to be accomplished
will be the lessen i ug, indeed the
total destruction of the influences
and power exerted by the "rum
and politics" combination so bane
ful in all political and economic
questions-thus the fourth leg goeB
with the others."
Jim-"Hold on, Bill, how many
legs has that durned thing got? I
never heard ?f'a varmint with
more than four legs, except a
spider, or a thousand legs, and you
have already knocked out four in
the first round and. still a-hook
Bill-"There's no telling how
many legs this thing may have
it may have as many as a taran
tula-the point I am driving at is
to tell you how many tho present
law will knock from under. How
ever we won't knock out any more
legs just now, but speak of the
affirmative good to be accomplished
by the new-dispensation. Under
the law which prevails at present
there's no legal responsibility at
taching to any one for crimes com
mitted by reason of its abuse except
the poor wretsh addicted to thc
habit of drinking to excess. If
a murder be committed under the
shadow of a bar-room the drunken
murderer is punished but the man
who made him drunk goes uu
whipped of justice. Under the
law which goes into effect the first
day next July one man will be re
sponsible for the administration
of it, and the conduct of the liquor
trafile in South Carolina, and that
man is no lossa personage than
the Governor. He will be at the
head of the State board of control
which appoints the county boards
of control, and this last selects the
county dispensers. So, in point of
fact, Gov. Tillman will dominate
and control the manufacture and
sale of intoxicating liquors in
South Carolina. It is a responsi
bility he has sought, and a respon
sibility he cannot share with any
other. I admire him for it and
predict that he will wisely and
fearlessly discharge the high du
ties thus self-assumed. In justice
to himself he must see toit that
the law be carried out to the letter
so that any evil which springs
from it may not be laid at his
door. But this law which we are
to have in'South Carolina isn't an
experiment by any manner of
means. Almost just such a sys
tem has been in operation in Nor
way and Sweden for a number of
years and the results are amaz
Jim-"Tell it agin Governor, as
Cary McCarty said at the campaign
meeting. Now you're com in' down
to hard pan. Bill, I don't trust
any man's theories on the liquor
question, but when you give me
the cold hard facts I'm your meat.
Tell about Norway and Sweden,
Bill. You must have been readin'
Bill-"It would take all day to
tell itali, Jim, but I can give you
the results. The liquor law in
Norway and Sweden to-day is the
same substantially as that passed
by our last Legislature. This law
has been in operation in those
counties tor thirty-five years. But
before I give the results of the law
I'll give you a little history : From
1811 every farmer in Norway and
Sweden was allowed to distill his
own corn. As a consequence in
1830 there were more than 170,000
stills in Sweden alone. As another
consequence the people of those
ice-bound States drank more liquor
than any nations on the globe. I
give you these facts, Jim, that you
may see that the law in Sweden aud
Norway had few friends when first
introduced, the farmers there be
ing its bitterest enemies by reason
of their interest in distilleries? lu
South Carolina, thank God, the
farmers are not opposed to this
liquor reform, and if good resulted
in Norway and Sweden, how much
more may wo expect from the
same law in South Carolina. Now
for results : The reportB show that
JnSweden, duri pg. the. lasKaevo^
R^5=y?a?8. c?Bes /of aeRrium tre
mens have sunk from 131 yearly to
49, notwithstanding the fact that
the population has nearly doubled
during those years. The consump
tion of liqu rs in the same period
has decreased in the proportion of
16 to 29, or nearly one-half. The
very latest statistical report Bhows
a falling off in consumption of
liquors in the ratio of 5 to 12, or
nearly two-thirds. Arrests for
drunkenness in one year fell off
from 1013 to .729 notwithstanding
the increase of population. Instead
of bar-ro^ms coffee houses have
been substituted and they make
money. One town of fifty thous
and inhabitants has in thirteen
years accumulated a fund of four
millions of dollars which, under
the old system, would have gone
into the pockets of bar-room men
and distillers, but which now is
appropriated to beautifying and
adorning the city, water-works,
public buildings, charitable insti
tutions, school-houses, parks, etc.
And all these good results are
ascribed to the public control of
spirits. Now if all these good
things came to Norway and Sweden,
with fewer obstacles in the way
why may not our own old State do
better? Say, Jim, why not?"
Jim-"There's one thing I want
to ask you, Bill. After this law
goes into effect can't we ever, you
and I, get another drop? No egg
nog, no syllabub? Shall the snakes
up in Sodom be allowed to eat me
up? Say, Bill, give me some
Bill-"Yes, Jim, you and I don't
drink to excess, and we can get a
plenty of it, and that that's good,
for the chemist of the South Caro
lina College is required by the law
to examine every drop before it is
offered for sale and cpr ti fy that it
is good, pure, unadulterated, unde
"Jim-"Hallelujah ! I'm con
verted, I've como through," and
Jim went off singing:
'?Here's good liquor, come and drink,
For Sally is the gal for me."

"If anybody thinks the citizens of the
Cactus Republic do not possess their full
share of Yankee shrewdness he is- likely
to become wiser without growing wealth
ier during a year's sojourn in Mexico,"
said Ignatius Schumaker, as he joined
the circle of bonanza kings who were
talking pay rock in the corridors of the
Southern. "I went down there a couple
of years ago to pick up a few fortunes in
the mining district. At Chihuahua I be
came acquainted with an old greaser
who professed to become very fond of
me. One day, when I had warmed his
leathery old heart with pulque, he con
fided to me*' that he knew the location of
an old Aztec mine of fabulous richness.
It was situated upon a branch of the
Yaquai river, on land owned by his
brother, a wealthy ranchero. It was
from this mine .that the Montezuma^
irew the bulk of their fabulous wealth.
"During the war wag?d by Cortez the
mine was forgotten, and he-my com
panion-had lately discovered it. He
had specimens of the ore, and it was
fully 70 per cent, coin silver. Of course
I bit-bit ravenously. I set out for his
brother's ranch next day and reached it
after a three days' ride. The old mine
was certainly there, and it gave every
indication of being as rich as represented.
I scraped together every dollar I could
command and bought a third interest in
.it. Then I went to work to form a com
pany to develop it. I did not work long,
however. The first man 1 interviewed
looked at me pityingly and remarked:
'So old Jose has caught another sucker,
has he? My innocent friend, that old
hole is salted. You could carry away
every ounce of pay rock within twenty
five miles of the place in a meal sack.'"

Isaac Newton's First Inspiration.
The youth of high scholastic atta?h
'menta v^'.o is always carrying off prizes
naturaUy raises hopes of his subsequent
success in a particular career. Of course,
the most is made of him. He is not only
a credit to himself, but to his teachers;
to the latter, indeed, he is a practical
certificate-a "human document"-of
the first class. Finally he"leaves school,
and it is confidently predicted that, if
he does not achieve greatness in the bate
tie of life, it can only be on account, qty
some moral flaw which has not yet had
time to declare itself. -
But the "dull boy" seldom receives
the benefit of the doubt in any specula
tion as to his future. Once dubbed
"dunce" or reputed "slow," and he "is
allowed to develop in the shade, emerg

his friends only because nothing was 'e)F

God said, "Let Newton bc!" and all was light,
Nevertheless the greatest of English

Newton made little progress "until one

given him a severe kick in the stomach,
from which he Buffered great pain, he

Perseverance and "push" are far fr?m

from being equally commendable, j A
girl walked into a large dry goods store,
and going up to one of the firm asked if
he wished to employ any more girliin
courteously in the negative.
The girl, who was showily dressed and
evidently impressed with her own ap
pearance, would not accept his answer.
"I was told you wanted more help,"
persisted the applicant somewhat defi
"It was a mistake, you see. I do not,"
was the reply.
"But won't you need some one after
"No," was the answer, given very de
cidedly and with courteous coolness.
The girl looked at the gentleman some
what doubtfully and walked out. Turn
ing to a friend the gentleman said:
"That young woman saw that I was
busy and pushed herself forward with
out a word of excuse. She did not ap
preciate the courtesy I showed her. I
would not employ a girl who had so
much push and so little modesty and
consideration for the rights of other peo

store. I doubt if she would succeed any
Ingratitude of Parties.
The ingratitude of party is proverbial.
One need go no further back in search
of an example than the first Lord Iddes
leigh; instructive stories have been told
of the ingratitude which was shown
toward him. The late Robert Lowe did
something for his party once upon a
time. What did his party ever do for
him? But the examples which, on a
moment's reflection, occur to one's mind
ar^ too numerous to mention. A man
may, and frequently does, give all-time,
money, intellect, his whole life-to the
so called public service, to be shelved at
last. And suppose he is not shelved;
suppose, that is, he dies in harness.

.The hillside blazed in red ant*, gold;
Tho fields had barned to umber:
The air was crisp, nor yet too cold.
As down a winding way I bowled
With Jennie on a Humber.
Sweet Jennie, with her chestnut hair,
Her roguish eyes and laughter;
How proud was I that she was fair;
How glad was I to see her there,
And know that none came ofter! :
Oh, dream of happy days gone byl
We spoke of autumn sadly;
And when I seemed to hear her sigh
I lisped her name, I know not why
Somehow she pedaled badly.
I lisped her name, and growing bold
No wonder she grew sober,
. Or that the wheels so slowly rolled
Along the sunlit, leaf strewn mold
This rare day in October.

Of course 'twas wrong to treat her so,

From an Old Book.
In one of the older manuals of the
common council of New York there ap
pears an interesting directory of this
city for the year 16G5. Then there
were exactly twenty streets and a pop
ulation of 251. Broadway at that time
was De Heere straat (the principal
street). The Battery was Aen de Strandt
van de N. Reveir. Wall street was De
Waal, Pearl street was De Perel straat,
Whitehall street was De Winckel straat,
William street was In de Smits valley
(In the smith's valley), and Broadway
above Wall street was Buyten de Lant
Poort (outside the land gate). All of
the residents were of Dutch extraction,
with the exception of one whose name
appears in the list as Jacob, the French
There were Roosevelts, Beekmans, De
Peysters, De Puys, Van Cortlandts and
Verplancks in those days. Clams, oys
ters and fish formed the principal food
of the settlers at that period. Occasion
ally in the spring; New York was visited
by "such amazing flights of wild pigeons
that the sun was hid by their flocks from
Binning on the earth for a considerable
time; then it was that the natives laid
in a great store bf them against a day of
need."-New York Times.
The Love of Domestic Animals.
The man who has not music in his
soul is justly exposed to the disparage
ment of the poet, but what shall be said
of him who cannot find one dumb ani
mal at least On which to bestow care
and kindness? Sailors and soldiers have
their pets; the feathered, the feline, and
the canine creation are universal favor
Carriers and draymen are rarely in
different to the companionship of the
four footed friends, and the navvy's dog
while his master is at work in the cut*
ting or on the embankment, sits on his
peajacket and guards the bundle con
taining that midday meal of which,
when the toiler returns, the good and
faithful servant will have his share. It
would be a very dreary and perhaps a
wickeder world than it is if we had
not animal pets, domestic as well as
regimental.-London Telegraph. "
A happy wedlock is a long falling in
love. I know young persons think love
belongs only to the brown hair and
plump, round, crimson cheek. So it does
for its beginning, just as Mount Wash
ington begins at Boston bay. But the
golden marriage is a part of love which
the bridal day knows nothing of. Youth
is the tassel and silken flower of love;
age is the full corn, ripe and solid in the
ear. Beautiful is the morning of love,
with its prophetic crimson, violet, saf
days that are to come. Beautiful also
is the evening of love, with its glad re
membrance and its rainbow side turned
toward heaven as well as earth.-Theo
