THOS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR
WEDNESDAY, FEB. 14,1894.
The population of South Caro
lina is about four times the size of
the Territory of Utah and yet the
mortgage indebtedness of the lattei
is $632,415 more than the former.
According to the Manufacturers'
Record,- South Carolina, takes the
lead in the manufacture of cotton
goods of any southern state, and is
also ahead in the number of new
plants established during the year
Gov. Tillman says no constable
will be allowed on the force who
gets drunk, that he has them ad
monished of this when they first go
on duty, and it shall be a law as
immutable as any of the old Medes
A terrific snow storm prevailed
throughout the West on Sunday
and Monday past. In Kansas it is
said to have been the worst within
the memory of the oldest inhabi
tant. Over two feet of snow fell in
less than twelve hours.
A convention of the Reformers
of the 1st Congressional district
was 'held at Summerville last
Thursday, and Dr. J. Wm. Stokes
was nominated to fill the vacancy
caused by the promotion of Hon.
Wm. H. Brawley to the United
States District Judgeship.
The Wilson tariff bill which
passed the House of Representa
tives by such a handsome majority
will meet with much more opposi
tion in the Senate, and many
changes may be made before it
finally becomes a law. Senator
Butler? however, thinks it will go
through ,the upper house without
The Spartanburg Spartan, an
anti paper, says : "When the cam
paign opens all that Tillman has
to do is to mount the stump, say
over his old speeches of 1890, abuse
the old ring, the aristocrats and
Haskellites, and there will be a
grand rally to him. The people
are going to stick to Tillman in
1894 as they did in 1890."
A decision was lately reported
from Iowa which may interest
owners of dogs. The Supreme
court of that State sustained a
deieisonofa lower courr where by
damages to the amount of $1,500
were awarded a man who was in
jured by being thrown from his
buggy in a runaway caused by the
barking of a neighbor's dog.
Not the least of the many bene
fits fairly attributable to the dis
pensary law in thiB State, is the
fact that there has been a great
falling off in the number of per
sonal difficulties in which pistols
were drawn and b'ood shed. Be
fore this law went into operation,
shooting scrapes were of every
day occurrence all over the State,
sometimes as many as half dozen
a day, all due to whiskey
Senator Butler made a speech in
Bennettsville on the first Monday
in this month by appointment.
This is the same spot where Gov
ernor Tillman made his famous
first speech in 1885 the one which
was heard around the world.
The Bennettsville Democrat
seems to think that the Senator
came too late, that Marlboro coun
ty people had already killed the
senatorial calf for Ben j. I.
Why don't the people quit kick
ing against the dispensary law?
It is a great deal better than the
old barroom system. It is true we
voted for prohibition, but did not
expect to get it, except in a modi
fied form and while the present
law does not fully meet our appro
bation, yet it should be given a
fair trial. We notice that it is not
prohibitionists who are doing the
kicking, but the roughs and toughs
of creaton, aided and encouraged
by a lot of disgruntled, dejected,
sour, lonesome newspapers and re
porters who will not be satisfied
after they are dead unless they can
We hear the statement frequent
ly and have noticed in many of our
State exchanges the assertion,that a
constable has right to enter private
dwtlliugs and search for liquors
even in the most private
apartments, without a warrant.
This is told by many in ignorance
and by others who know that it is
incorrect Here is a copy of a por
tion of the instruction furnished
over the signature of B. R. Till
. man to those officers who are charg
ed with the enforcement of the
"The right to search without a
warrant applies only to places of
business and public places-and
in all cases where liquor is Leliev
?d to be in private residences and
is being sold, search warrants
must be issued."
!LET TH JE LAW RUJLE.
A, gentleman of undoubted re
liability, who lives near Reidville,
sent for Deputy Marshal Kirby to
come out on a blind tiger hunt.
The report came also that six
teen sturdy moonshiners from the
Glassy Mountain section of Green
ville county have been preambu
lating around- Reidville several
days with a wagon load of whis
key, which they were selling openly
and above board to anybody who
desired. The entire party were
armed to their teeth, with Win
chesters, shot guns, pistols, and
The ADVERTISER has been dis
posed to think that Gov. Tillman's
constables were too reckless of hu
man life in enforcing the dispen
sary law, but the above, a clipping
from the Spartaiiburg Herald, pre
sents a state of facts that require
harsh measures, and Gov. Tillman
is limply fighting the devil with
fire. Men who carry "Winchesters
and knives and shotguns" to en
able them to violate the law must
be met by men armed with like
deadly weapons to enforce it. There
lis no other alternative, no other
solution of the matter.
If the law cannot be enforced
by ordinary means then extraor
dinary means muut be resorted to
or anarchy will rule instead of law.
If there shall be blood shed the
responsibility will be placed where
it belongs upon the law breakers
and those who are by their sym
pathy and encouragement aiding
Let the law be enforci d.
TO TRY THE DISPENSARY.
Some time last year the State of
Massachusetts, by act of its Legis
lature?, appointed a commission to
investigate the Norwegian or Goth
enburg system of regulating the
liquor trade. This is the system in
force in South Carolina now and
called the dispensary law.
This commission consisted of
Judge John Lovell, Dr. Henry P.
Bowdircb,and Rev. John G. Brooks,
three eminent citizens of the com
monwealth. They employed a Mr.
Koren who spentconsiderable time
in Norway and Sweden in investi
The report which he has fur
nished the data for, is full of val
uable statistics which show the
merits of ihe systems which are
studied, as well as their weak
points. Not only is the general
situation given in each of these
countries, but several of the largest
places, such as Gothenburg, StOCk

up and studied in detail. Statis
tics are given to show the excessive
consumption of liquors bnfore
1855, which led to the agitation
for reform, and the success of the
new system is established from its
good results as seen in the in
creased sobriety of the people and
in the improvement of their ma
Public opinion ie said to be very
strong in favor of the Gothenburg
system. "The average citizen,
who pursues his way without much
concern for affairs nor imme
diately touching his personal in
terest, makes an exception when
questioned as to the company sys
tem and pronounces its advantages
great without hesitation, Much
more emphatic are the declarations
of those whose position in society
lend special weight to their opin
ion. Not for a moment would
they entertain the thought of going
back to the old regime,with brandy
shops on every corner for the en
richment of private persons. In
the words of the chief of police of
Gothenburg the difference between
conditions under the old an the new
order of things is as the difference
between night and day."
It is said that there is ample
support for the statement that
drunkenness has fallen off as the
company system has extended,
and it is absolutely known that
the consumption per capita has
fallen off one-half."
. To Fight the Devil.
Reform A d voca te.
The liquor elements of the whole
United States are massing their
forces in South Carolina, for the
success of the dispensary system
means its extention and adoption
by other States, hence the relent
less warfare now being waged upon
it. Millions of dollars if needs be,
will be contributed by the liquor
men to carry on the fight, hundreds
of men may be slain in this strug
gle of morality with vice, yet wu
have an abiding faith that right
will prevail. It is foolish to uu
dorestimate the strength of our
enemies, we have before us the
hardest fight ever entered into by
our people, it will only nerve us to
greater exertion, and when we can
in security put aside our armour,
the realization that the fight was
hard, can only add zest to the en
joyment of the victory.
January has given promise of
improvement in the mercantile and
financial world for 1894. Tho
gain is slight, but quite enough to

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was never a time in the his
ory of our country when the demand
br inventions and improvements in

nankind in the factory and work
