ABOUT THE DISPENSARY.
The Columbia correspondent of
the News ahd Courier has the fo1
' lowing item as to proposed changes
in the dispensary law :
There has been some informal
consultation about bills relative to
the liquor question and several
bills are understood to be in course
of preparation. It is understood
that one of the leading up-country
members and one who has consid
erable following" will present a bill
something like this:
Do away with the State dispen
Establish county dis'pensars,
under county authorities entirely,
as to management, purchase and|
Prohibition in such counties as
want and vote for it.
No provision is made for any
stfrt of license system.
There are many other bills on
this line in incubation, and what
will come out of it all is
. It is likely that after the elec
tions there will be several bills
presented relating to the liquor
THE NICARAGUA CANAL.
The Nicaragua Canal bill passed
the United States Senate on Satur
day last by an almost unanimous
vote, Only six senators voting
The company is authorized to
contract for the completion of the
canal within six years. The pay
ments are restricted to $20,000,000
annually. The canal is to be
large enough "for the largest sea
going vessels at a cost not to exceed
the estimates of the engineers and
not to exceed $115,000,000." This
amount is made a permanent
appropriation for the work, to be
used as occasion may require. The
bill gives the government a lien
upon the property to secure 'the
repayment of the moneys advanced
and the president is empowered to
declare forfeiture of the property
to the United States without the

guaranteed, but the right to

and Pacific coasts of the United
States is reserved.
.J5TAY AWAY FROM CUJiA.
In a personal letter from Major
John Gary Evans, now in Cuba,
he gives some interesting facts
about his work, and shows that
the craze for office-holding exists
in Cuba as well as in South Caro
lina. He writes as follows, among
other things :
"I am very sorry that the
newspapers have given a wrong
idea of the position I hold, as it
has flooded me with lettefs from
all the State for positions, etc. I
am not what you ?would call a
mayor in civil life. I am simply
on the staff of Major Gen Ludlow,
Governor of the district of Havana,
and have been assigned to the duty
of organizing government. The
fir?.t thing, of course to be done is
the organization of a polio force,
and this we are now doing and will
have in effect in a few days, Next
comeB the municipal Courts, and
this I am to take up next. The
responsibility is much greater
than that of civil mayor, as you
will understand. I ho]ie, however,
to pull it through successfully. I
appreciate the compliment very
.much, as it came entire unexpectly,
andi had not at the time an
acquaintance with the General. I
have tried to do my duty as a sold
ier even though holding a
subordinate position, and I am
proud of the fact that it has been
satisfactory so far to my command
ing generals. I wish you would say
through the papers what I enclose
herewith, as it will save me lots of
Annoyance from adveutrer3 and
office-seekers, ^his is a remarkable
country, as rich as the valley of
the Nile, but the people are a Borr^
lot;, lazy and don't care whether
they have more than on day's
rations ahead. The little nigs go
naked, because they prefer it, and
not from poverty."
The statement which Major
m in im m ?fi
Evans Trishes published read?:
"I am in receipt of communica
tions daily from South Carolinians
desiring to know something of
Havana and the prospect here of
success in business enterprises. It
will be impossible for me to answer
all of these letters as my time is
almost entirely absorbed by my
official duties. My advice to all
such is to stay at home for the
present. Everything here is in a
formative stage and prices are
abnormally high. The people
seem to think that Americans are
made of money, and they pay
accordingly for what they get.
When the Gaverument is formed
matters will settle down to a
reasonable basis and then will be
enough to visit the i?Jand. This
JS a splendid country and will soon
bloom as a regular garden, but

OUT OF POLITICS NOW.
At Gov. McMillin's inaugura
tion on Monday Gov. Taylor de
livered himself of the. following
parting shot :
"Mr. Speaker, Ladies and Gen
tlemen : I am about to shuffle off
this mortal coil of politics and fly
away to the heaven of my native
mountain, where I may think and
dream in peace, safe from the sick
ening sting of unjust criticism;
safe from the talons of some old
political vulture; safe from the
slimy kiss of hypocrisy and the
keen dagger of ingratitude.
"I do not mean to say that all
politicians are vultures or that
all politicians are vultures or that
they are hypocrites or assassins;
for the great majority of our pub
lic men are up-right and honest,
and worthy of the confidence re
posed in them by the people; yet
there are black wings in the politi
cal firmament, and reptiles crawl
?nd hiss in every. capital, ?ut.
thank God, the live thunders of
eternal truth always clear the at
mosphere, and the heel of justice
will surely bruise the serpent's
head. ' .
"I do not retire from this high
office with the rankling of disap
pointment and chagrin in my
bosom, but rather as one who re
tires from labor to rest; from war
to peace ; from trouble to happi
.4T Ar* ?nt. retim tbs so^'iam
oulist of a scattered dream, but
with all the buds of hope bursting
into bloom and all the bowers of
the future ringing with melody. I
am contented with my iot in life.
Three times I have worn the
laurel wreathe of honor, twined by
the people of my native State, and
that is glory enough for me.
"While, I believe that the good
in politics outweighs the bad, yet
how thorny is the path and how
unhappy the pilgrimage to him
who dares to do his duty ! There
ara no flowers except the few bou
quets snatched from the graves of
fallen foes ; there is no happii -rn
except the transient thrill of cruel
triumph, which passes like a shad
ow acrosfa the heart.
"Every honest man who runs
for office' is a candidate for trou
ble ; for the fruits of political vic
tory turn to ashes on the lips.
"To me, there is nothing in this
world so pathetic as a candidate.
He is like a mariner without a
compass, drifting on the tempest
tossed waves of uncertainty, be
tween the smiling cliffs of hope
and the frowning crags of. fear.
He is a walking peition and a
living?prayer ; he is|a packhorse of
public sentiment; he is the drome
dary cf politics. ^And even if he
rei* ..ios the goal of his ambition,
he will Boon feel the beak of the
vulture in his heart, and the fang
jof the serpent in his soul.
"I am no longer a candidate.
Never again will I be inaugurated
into public office. The ark of my
humble public career now rests on
the Ararat of paivate life. I stand
on its peaceful summit and look
down on the receding flood of
politice. The dove of my destiny
has brought me an olive branch
from happier fields, and I go
thence to laboi and to love.
"I take with me a heart full of
gratitude and a soul full of prec
ious memories; gratitude to the
people for their unwavering
confidence in me ; precious mem
ories of my friends who have been
kind and true.
"The record that I have mad'
is an open book to all. I a*
willing to die by it. For whate vi
mistakes I have committed, I } jav
kept steadily in view the ho; Jor (
the state and the bappinesf . 0f y,

you all an affectionate and fipa?

prayer that the Christ who died
for love and mercy's Bake will
guide our Chisf Executive;
and all who shall follow him in
the paths of peace and love, and
bapteze them with the spirit of
mercy. Farewell! Farewell!"
