The ADVERTISER is unalterably
opposed to the sale of intoxicating
liquors as a be\ erage, whether sold
lawfully or unlawfully, by the
state or the individual.
Russia, riot and revolution are
synonyms these day e.-Orange
Is not this alliteration also
apropos at this juncture: Hum,
rottenness and repudiation.
After hearing arguments pro
and con Judge Aldrich has deci
ded that another election, upon
the*formation of Heyward county,
cannot be held under four years
from the date of th** former one.
Such a statement au this con
cerning the dispensary from BO
high an. authority as Senator Till
man is both interesting and sig-j
nificant: "The people believe
there is corruption and a great
deal of it. Very many things go
"to?how that this belief has good
foundation in fact."
-When the "leak" in the agri
cultural department of the gov
ernment was stopped one em
ployee was discharged. - Wonder
h?-w many dispensary officials and
employees would havt been dis
charged throughout the past dec
ade had all of the "leaks" in the
dispensary been stopped ?
Graft Unearthed in Dispensary.
It has been aujpectedr^oT^s?me^
imo that certain' liquor dealers
who sell their goods to the state
dispensary were paying the coun
ty dil pensers to push their brands
of liquor. Commissioner Tatum
ha* made a discovery which proves
that there was ground for suspi
cion. He has found that some
cases of goods contained a greater
number of bottles than were billed
to or paid for by the state dis
pensary. This excess would be
come the property of the county
dispenser to whom the whiskey
was; shipped, who would either
drink or sell it and put the money
in his pocket, instead of the cash
drawer. On opening tho cases
of whiskey! that yet; remained
in the Btate dispensary Mr. ?rftffc
found $3,000 worth ^p^wrSRy
that had not been invoiced.
It is tl^fcrsfact that some
cojun^^Ms^ensers have been paid
Sands of dollars to increase
the sales of certain branda of
liquor, and, as a matter of course,
this money was taken out of the
quality of the liquor. If this form
of graft has been conducted in the
broad open daylight, so to Bpeak,
think of what probably has been
done in the dark hours and in
Good Results From The Cotton
* Growers Association.
- Those who have all along con
tended that the Southern Cotton
Growers Association would ac
complish nothing for the produ
cers of the staple must now retract
and forever hold their peace. Had
Mr.' Cheatham, the secretary of
this gigantic organization, made
complaint, in an individual ca
pacity to Secretary Wilson, to
the effects that advance informa
tion concerning the government
reportB waB being furnished to cer
tain Wall Street brokers, he would
have been unheeded ; but having
filed the complaint as the official
representative of hundreds 'of
thousands of farmers the matter
was immediately taken nuder
consideration and an investiga
tion ordered. The allegation
was found to be true, and not
only was the dishonest offi
cial, summarily dismissed but the
system of compiling the reports,
has been re-organized and is now
safeguarded so as to pre ve ut a re
currence of the "leak" in future.
So much foi the tangible, visible
fruits resulting from the concerted
action of the farmers. There is no
way- of computing the great good
thai cannot be discerned with the
People Unwilling to Wait.
In his letter upon the dispensa
ry situation Senator Tillman ad
vises the people, before voting GU'
the dispensaries,- to wait and see
.'whether or not the legislature, at
its uext session, will purge the
corruption out of the dispensary
system and put safeguards around
it fer the future."
We believe that the people are
uuwilling to wait, for the follow
ing reasons :
1. They have but little hope
that the next legislature will af
ford any relief. The last legisla
ture, in which the pro-dispensary
influence was dominant, refused
to revise or amend the law ; that,
too, in the face of the open charges
of corruption, which charges were
as true then &B now.
. 2. The personnel of the next
legislature will be the same as
thet last; the same dispensary
leaders in the Senate and
House ; the same members of these
bodies to vote as voted last year;
i the same dispensary employees
to distribute free liquor among the
law-makers; the same wholesale
liquor dealers and distiller to fur
nish this free liquor. Why ex
pect any relief from such a source ?
3. The people are uuwilling to
j wait another year because they
desire the matter settled while the
"dispensary" or "no dispensary"
question is divested of politics.
During an off-year, politically
speaking, the .voters cat: quietly
without any passion or prejudice
-express their wishes. It is now
a moral question and they desire
that it ba settled as such. If its
settlement be postponed till an
other year, when mon are scram
bling for office, it will be made a
political issue and will not tben
be considered dispassionately. In
other words, we believe the people
of this county want the liquor
question voted upon apart from
men and politics.
