Tho State Hoard of Control mot lu Co
lumbia last woolf. In reporting tho pro
Ocodlngs of tho Hoard, Tho Stato, of tho
lill instant, has this to say of tho aotlou
takon.rolativo to tho Disponsary in Wal
halla:!
Up fn ono of tho largest towns of Oco
iU)0 county tboro is a disponsary, which
according to information presented to
tho board is run in a dooidodly novol
mannor. Tho town is prohibition in sen
timent. Tho disponsor, a gunsmith,
keons bis Btook in a box in tho baok part
of Ids shop. Homo timo ago Inspootor
Hill was given instructions to order tho
dispensers to display thoir stocks and
koop thom in iirst-olass ordor. Tho
County Hoard of Control bas mado com
plaint to the Stato Hoard about tho dis
play of tho o. p. stocks. Tho latter sent
instructions that tho disponsor bo or
dorcd forthwith to display his ?tock as
required by tho rulos or ho would bo "re
moved .'or causo."
plr. H. H. Se.bvndor is tho disponsor re
ferred to in tho abovo report. Every
body who knows Henry Schrodor, knows
bim to bo as honest as tho day is long.
We doubt not, it may bo correctly said
Ot bim, that in Ibo conduct of Ids dis
pensary, ho comes nearer carrying out
tho lotter and tho spirit of tho require
ments of tho Disponsary Act than any
dispenser in Ibo Hiato. Ho is careful
ami watchful in tho discharge of bis offi
cial duties, and docB not try to con voit
' tho disponsary into a bar room by mak
ing an enticing display of liquors. Ho
hoops tho stock In tho front room, how
ovor, and is always on band within tho
legal hours to attend to tho wanta of
customers. When tho liquors aro sold
bo docs net allow thom oponed or drunk
on Ibo promises. Ho novor opens a Bido
or buck door, or furnisbes a cork sorow,
so that ibo customers can stop into a
corner of the back yard and drink, as is
dono by not a fow dispensors elsewhere,
if we aro correctly informed. Ttis not
bis purpose kn rusk the sales o? liquors,
and tins seems lo bo tho chief causo of
complaint urged against bim by tho
Hoard of Control. If they expect bim
to do this, they havo got tho wrong man,
^^long as tho .Statute remains as now
4 wm ton.-- Mo may .bo removed for this
cause, but a bettor man can Hover bo
found for the position. Should ho bo
removed for this cause, there would bo
furnished proof conclusive that tho
Hoard of Control purpose to violato both
tho letter and the spirit of tho Statute by
converting the dispensary into a bar
room.
Tho President's Policy.
President McKinley's message on tho
Spanish-Cuban situation was transmit
ted to Congress last Monday. Ho reviews
at length tho condition of affairs in Cuba,
and closes by advising armed interven
tion to put a stop to hostilities, by im
posing "constraint" on both contending
parties, lie thus " blows both hot and
cold" in the same breath. Tho uso of
force as outlined by him would douht
v. less result in tho United States having
to light both tho Spaniards and tho
Cubans. We would occupy tho position
of a big boy attempting to Btop a
light between two smaller boys who
.happen to he pretty equally liiftfamccK
-vii .! . big boy, -'gr.r-'s up, takes each
by Ufo' collar, pulls them apart,
gives them a slap, and a kick and starts
them humping in opposite directions,
each, however, heaping reproach on tho
head of the would-be poace-makor.
That is the logic of the President's po
licy, and .should it be (rallied out along
tho lines indicated by him, it would be
a clear ease of "love's labor lost ," for the
anathemas of both Spain and Cuba would
be called down upon his head. Tho at
tempt at this lalo day to impose "hostile
constraint upon both tho parties to tho
contest," would simply he adding fuel to
tho lire, and result in rendering still
more distressing tho already perishing
condition of tho reconcentrados. The
insnnMMUs have long since resolved upon
independence or death as thoir portion,
and they would not accept servitudo any
more readily from us than from Spain.
It would bo far bid ter, in our humble
opinion, simply to recognize tho Govern
ment of ("nba, accord berthe rights of
a belligerent, and let tho matter rest with
tho insurgents to rid their island of
Spanish rule. Even at this lalo day such
recognition would result in their indo
pondoueo and freedom. This action
should have been taken by our Govern
ment, eighteen months or two years ago.
The wai' would thou have been ended ero
this, by tho original partios to tho con
test, thousands of lives would havo been
saved, and tho present crisis avoided.
Such action still would bo better than
"hostile constraint" in tho manner pro
posed. The I'resident 's policy in pract i
cal operation would doubtless bo found
to work complete destruction of what
little remains of tho subject matter of
Ibo contest. "Independence or Death"
is the mottoof the ('ubans, and a glorious
ono it is. They have sufforcd far moro
from the tyranny of Spanish rule within
tho last ten years than tho American
colonists did whoo our forefathers do
. dared their independence. They fought
.v^ nuder the inspiring exclamation of Pat
^?-- rick Henry: "(Jive ino liberty or give mo
death!"

As wo do not proposo to bandy epithets

Carolina authorities willingly dolivorod
up tho Loos to tho Ooorgia authorities
for trial, while tho Georgia authorities
aro resorting to all kinds of tricks and
subterfuges, without authority of law, to
forogo tho dolivory of tho Jlitts, Owens

Prohibitionists In Convention.
Tho Stato Prohibition Convention con
venes in Columbia this (Thursday) after
noon at eight o'clock. It bids fair to bo
quito a representative body, and will
doubtloss nominate a full State ticket to
bo voted for in tho primary olootlon.
Tho ruling of tho Stato Democratic
Kxocutivo Committoo last wook ?B taken
as an indication that tho votes oast for
tho nomin?os of this convontion will bo
counted. An amendment of tho consti
tution, to carry out this purposo, will
probably bo adopted by tho May Stato
Convention.
It ?B not yot cloav that tho votes for
a prohibition, or any othor faotion,
could bo counted, so long" ns tho consti
tution of tho party romains unchanged,
for each candidate is required to Mo a
plodgo that ho is not tho candidate of a
faction, and will not bocomo ono. Such
hoing tho lauguage of tho plodgo, incor
porated in tho constitution of tho party,
how could tho Hxocutivo Committoo
chango it ? It bas no law-making power.
Its duty is to uinstruo tho law, whorovor
a caso shall como before it on appeal.
It is patent that tho prohibition son ti
mon t bas great strongth throughout tho
State, lt is UBoless to nncor at it as is
tho custom of nomo. Tho votes of tho
prohibitionists will bo folt on election
day, and somo way will bo found to have
them counted. That much may bo taken
for granted. Thoy aro noithor fools nor
demagogues, but mon who havo tho
courage of their convictions and do thoir
own thinking. Not "\ small part of tho
best brain in tho Stato is found in thoir,
ranks. " .

Text?aE&uWtff?n lu tho South,
On our first pago will bo found a de
scription of tho now Toxtilo School to bc
founded as a permanent department o?
Clemson Collego. This will add greatly
to tho popularity of donison, and enable
it still moro of?cctivoly to accomplish tho
industrial training which constituted tho
purposo for founding ibo institution.
Tho leaders of toxtiio dovolopmont in
tho South say that tho apprentice system
is a thing of tho past, and will novor bo
revived. Tho great revolution wrought
by steam and electric machinory in all
branches of mill operations has mado
high-grade technical training an absoluto
necessity, and in order to develop ofli
ciont managers of men and machinory,
tho ground work for his training and
education must hereafter be obtained in
industrial or technical schools, in tho
same way that men aro prepared by spe
cial training to eventually occupy high
positions in law and medicine. Tho em
ployment of a boy or man on a special
machine will soldom develop a leader or
manager,-without somo previous instruc
tion on general subjects.
It is a matter of congratulation that
South Carolina is loading tho South, in
manufacturing enterprises, and just now
she scorns to bo in tho load in affording
means for thorough training In toxtilo
industry.
ONE OF TWO WAYS.
Tho bladder was created for ono pur
pose, namely, a receptado for tho urine,
and as such it is not liable to any form
of disease oxcept by ono of two ways.
Tho first way is from imporfect action of
tho kidneys. Tho second way is from
careless local treatment of othor disoascs.
Chief Cause.
Unhealthy urino from unhealthy kid
noys is tho ohiof cause of bladder trou
bles. ?So the womb, like tho bladder,
was created for ono purposo, and if not
doctored too much is not liable to weak
ness or disease, except in raro casos. It
is situated back of and very closo to tho
bladder, thoreforo any pain, disease or
inconvenience manifested in the kidneys,
back, bladder or urinary passage is often,
by mistako, attributed to fomalo weak
ness or womb tronido of somo sort. Tho
error is easily made and may bo as easily
avoided. To lind out correctly, sot your
m ino asido for twenty-four hours', a sodi
mont or sottling indicates kidney or blad
der tronido. Tho mild and tho extraor
dinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Koot, tho groat kidnoy, and bladder
remedy, is soon realized. If you nood a

President McKinley's Mcssngo ou tho
Cuban Situation.
WASHINGTON, 1>. C., April ll.-McKin
ley's Cuban moBsago was road at noon
to day, lt caustically censures Spain for
tho inhuman war of extermination in
Cuba.
In his mossago tho Pr?sident strongly
opposes recognition of bolligoronoy aa
inexpedient. Ho UIBO opposos tho r?cog
nition of tho indopendonco of Cuba at
this timo, but favors tho granting of
authority for such HBO of armed forcos of
tho United States ns bc may doom neces
sary to put an ond to hostilities and to
sccuro a stablo government for Cuba.
Ho alBO asks for an appropriation to bo
usod for tho roliof of Buoh of tho pooplo
aa aro still in need. Tho message shows
that Spain horsolf first suggested to this
goverumont tho desirability of au armis
tice and signified in advanco her nssont,
and asked that tho United States uso its
good ofilcoa to soouro a liko assent from
tho Insurgents. Thia request was denied.
Tho Mamo incidont figures quito prom
inently in tho mossago, and tho Prosi
dont argues that thc wreck of our battle
ship in Havana harbor shows conclusively
that Spain ?B not ablo to guarantco to tho
United Statos and othor nations that
soourlty to thoir VCSBO?B which thoy have
a right to doinand.
Tito mo ?Bago shows, however, that
Spain, BO far as can ho dono, without
specific action by tho cortes, lins disa
vowed any connection with tho wreck
ing of tho Maino, and has expressed her
doop rogrot and sorrow that tho appall
ing disaster should havo occurred in a
port within hor jurisdiction.
Tho following is thc lnnguago roforring
to nrmcd intervention:
In viow of theso facts and of thoso con
ditions I aBk CongrosB to authorise and
empower thc Prcsidont to tako measures
to sccuro tho full and liual termination

Consul General bec.
Consul Gonoral Fitzhugh Loo arrivod
in Washington Tuesday afternoon from
Havana, whence ho and bis party sailed
last Saturday afternoon. His routo from
Port Tampa to Washington was via
Jacksonville, Waycrosa, Savannah, Char
leston, Columbia and Richmond. It waa
a grand ovation from start to finish.
Arriving at Jaspor, Kia., tho local com
pany of State troops and a acoro of Con
federate veterans with a wild crowd mot
him. "A thousand wolcomcs to you.
Gonoral Leo, as a bravo man, a thousand
wolcomcs to our old Confederate com
rade, ton thousand wolcomos to you, sir,
for your admirable official courso as our
Consul at Havana," said ono of tho grey
headed mon.
"I thank you, sir," said Leo, "for your
kind expression; I thank the American
people for tho commendation thoy have
shown my administration as your Consul
General at Havana. 1 havo never really
known until to-day bow united tho peo
ple aro in sanctioning my courso.
At Savannah moro than 5,000 pooplo
woro at tho station to seo General Leo
whoa tho train carno in. Tho crowd was
enthusiastic and a short speech was
mado by tho Gonoral, hoing froquontly
applauded. As tho train rolled into tho
station a platoon of tho Chatham artil
lery, of which Gonoral Loo is aiihonorary
member, began firing tho Major Gono
ral'a Habito of bl guns.
Beneath tho shadow of Morro castlo
somo ono brought out a bottlo of cham
pagne and glasses, and Gonoral Loo gavo
this toast: "lloro is to the olllcors and
mon of tho Maino, which was blown up
by a Spanish mino."
In responding, Mr. Ackors, a British
subject, said: "May fifty guns speak for
oaoh of thc Maine's dead, and may each
gun mean fifty Spanish lives.)'
I asked Gonoral Leo if his toast was
significant. Ho replied: "It is significant
only as I spoak from tho heart, not from
tho hoad."
"Is it truo," I asked him. "that you
havo ovidonco showing Spanish implica
tion in tho blowing up of tho Maino?"
"I havo a roport, to mako on tho
Maine," bo answered, "which will bo in
tho President's hands on Tuesday, hut 1
have no ovidonco."
"I boliovo it ia my duty that I should
bo allowed to load tho first division on
Havana. If I do, please say foY mo that
I know bow to take tho city."
Gonoral Leo displayed a lottor from
Algernon Sartoris, grandson of Gonoral
Grant, in which ho said ho wroto to bim
as grandson of tho groat conminador on
tho Northern sido, to ask ono of tho loa
der? on tho Southern sido to permit him,
in caso ho headed an invasion of Cuba,
to sorvo on bis Btaff. Mr. Sartoris stated
that ho was 21 years old, and Bound, and
presented tho compliments of bis mother
and grandmother.
