There are persons in Edgefield
county that object to the dispen
sary law because under its opera
tion they eau buy whiskey but once
a day. They'' say it abridges in
that respect the liberty and in
alienable right handed down to
them from old Father Noah. But
what atribute this objection is to
the law itself, and we have no
doubt the bar-room men make the
same objection, for it abridges
their right, a3 they can't Reil even
once a day.
That was a good answer our
friend Sam Smith recently gave to
an anti who objected to the dispen
sary law because his house could
be searched for contraband liquor.
"Well," said Sam, "they may
search your house, because you are
a suspicious character and will
bear watching, but they'll never
search mine, and every ninety-nine
citizens out of a hundred need
have no fear, because no reputable
person would make affidavit that
they had contraband liquors."
We heard a prominent member
of the Egefield bar, and au auti at
toat,say recently, that it was "fash
ionable on bis side of the house to
decry Tillman, but he bedad Bquiz
zled if Tillman wasn't right in his
fight with the railroads, and he
hoped he would whip 'em, and he
believed ho would; that railroad
property to his own knowledge
wasn't assessed any higher, and in
many instances not so high, as the
property of individuals; the rail
road folks were simply lying when
they said to the contrary."

The Sin of Newspapers.
Greenville Mountaineer, (Anti.)
The constant misrepresentation
of public affairs is au alarming
evil of our times. The disposition
seems to be growing that the most
unfavorable light is to be thrown
upon any und every thing with
which we do not agree. This is an
era of extravagant assumption and
reckless statement concerning the
opposition, whether political or
otherwise, but it is especially true
in our politic? that needless and
hurtful assertions arc made with
out regard to the boundaries of
truth. Perhaps the dispensary law
and its administration has borne
the brant of more needless distor
tions in thi8way than anything of
recent times. At any rate it will do
for au illustration of the evil to
which we have called attention,
and we will cite a few facts to sus
tain the position.
The assertion is constantly
made that a dispensary constable
has the right to enter private dwel
lings and search for liquors even
in the most private apartments
without a warrant. A great deal
of righteous indignation has been
turned loose against this alleged
provision of the law, when the fact
is that there is no such authority
given to the constables under the
law and the instructions issued by
the State board of control expressly
states the ?PW to the contrary, as
follows r'The right to search with
out a warrant applies only to
places of business and public
places-and in all cases where
liquor is believed to be in private
residences and is being sold, search
warrants must bs issued." It bas
been denied time and again that
constables are clothed with the au
thority to enter private dwellings,
and yet scarcely a week passes
that we do not come across the most
bittor denuciation of the law be
cause private residences are open
to search without a warrant being
The State board of control has
ordered that raids shall be made
upon places where liquor is stored
away in quantities greater than five
gallons, unless the owners shall
securo certificates from the liquor
commissioner entitling them to
hold the liquor in their possession.
This order is at once construed to
mean that private residences aro
to be searched to ascertain wheth
er more than five gallons of liquor
are kept for private use, when
there is not a syllable to justify
such a conclusion. The provision
of the law under which the order
has been issued plainly reveals the
object which is to ascertain where
liquor is stored in large quantities,
and as a consequence to keep it
under surveillance hereafter. No
private rights are invaded, and the
State is perfectly justifiable in
keeping an oye opon stored li
Ou a certain day not long ago
two or three dispensary constables
visited Newberry, and it was
heralded over the country that
they were parading the streets with
Winchester rifles, when there was
not a word of truth in the state
ment. Newspapers pitched into
the high-handed methods of the
constabulary, and compared them
to the minions of Scott and Moses
trying to overawe a free people.
Corrections were made, it is true,
but the false impression created
has not been overtaken.
The story is frequently repeated
that the constable in Charleston,
who was pardoned immediately
after conviction had slapped a
woman in thu face, when the proof
was that he had struck her upon
the shoulder, which he claimed
was entirely accidental, and that
he was not cognizant of the fact at
any time. But the story got star
ted that it was a slap in the face,
and it is still doing duty for the
exhibition of choleric bluster in
regard to the protection of woman
in South Carolina.

Epitome of the Reform Move-|
Well, the Shell Manifesto to
which I referred in my last article
was duly published and is now his
In accordance with this call, a|
convention met in Columbia.
Many people have questioned the
right of tue Farmers' Association
to call this convention, but I could
not then see nor have I ever since
seen the impropriety of any class
of citizens calling a meeting in
which to discuss their grievances,
and from which to lay th ?ir com
plaints before the public. While
this Reform faction has probably
been too rash in many things, still
I think the original intentions
were good, and my symp?thies have
from the beginning been with the
true Farmers' Movement. This
March convention was very wise in
pledging itself to fight for its de-1
mauds, wholly within the lines of j
the democratic party so far as State
politics were concerned, and Capt.
Shell was on the right track when
be said before the convention, "we
do not want to forestall or dictate
to the democratic party as has been
charged, but we want a free and
fair expression of the will of the
party after the people have heard
the issues discussed on the hust
ings; and by the eternal God we
intend to have it! * * * We
want the majority to rule, and we
propose to see that it does rule,
and if it decides that we are wrong
we will submit. If it decides that
we are right our opponents must
submit or bolt the ticket."
In regard to office seeking Capt.
Shell said that he was not seeking
office, aud would not accept one if |
tendered to him.
This expression I have good rea
sons to believe did not come from
his heart, for we all know that he
put himself befoie the people that
same fall and was elecjgd to Berve
a term in the Federal House of
Representatives. Was his election
not a natural result of the success
of thc faction of which he was one
of the recognized leaders? Was
not tho nomination of Ben Till
man ior Governor by that conven
tion a natural result of the success
of the faction of which he too was'
i one of the recognized champions'
J If any of us were to champion i
cause of any kind would we no:
( upon its success, expect some favoi
in return? Quite natural to do so
and for Capt. Shell or Ben Till
: man, or any other man to say
while whooping up a faction that
he did not want any office, nay
more, to say that he would not ac
cept an office if tendered to him,
as both Shell and Tillman have
said, is saying rather more than is
warranted by human nature.
In order to strengthen what I
have said above concerning th?
desire for office we will just men
tion a few names in connection
with this convention, and see where
they have gone :
Capt. Shell was chairman of the
committee which called the con
vention; he went to Congress the
W. J. Talbert was chairman of
the convention ; two years later he
went to Congress.
J. L. M. Irby was chairman of a
committee in the convention and
was elected chairman of the State
Executive Committee, he went to
the Federal Senate. J. E. Tindal
presented the platform; we will
find him later in the Governor's
B. R. Tillman was the prirre
mover of the Reform faction ; the
convention nominated him for
Governor, and by the success of
his faction he occupied the Gov
ernor's chair. And so on, but I
have named sufficient lo show you
that when a man whoops up a fac
tion he naturally wants to come in
on the home stretch for his share
of the spoils.
I say naught of the above for
the disparagement of the Reform
Movement, but. only to show you
that "politics is politics/' and
that when a man comes to you
with a "big thing" he comes not
without a certain degree of hope
of profit for himself. These are
facts and are applicable to all fac
tions and creeds whatsoever, and
let me warn you, that when any
man comes to you with a "dead
sure thing" seemingly all on your
side, you had always better take
what he says "cum grano salis."
It does not pay to jump into
anything with both feet without
due deliberation; that is why a
good many people are dissatisfied
with the Reform Movement, they
expected everything that every
body said about it was true, took
it to be a panacea for all their
political ills, therefore they were
fooled. No, my friends,Jalway8 re
member that every sweet has its
bitter; every rose its thorns.
