WALHALLA, 8. C. :
W KI?NK*UM1, OCT. 'i.?, I MOS?
Tho election in Ocoueo yesterday
on tho question of dispensary or no
dispensary resulted, so far as heard
from, in an overwhelming vote in
favor of abolishing tho great moral
institution in this county.
There was no marked interest in
the election and a light vote was
jjollod. Not all of the boxes have been
brought in as yet and thc figures
given below, while practically official,
aro not given as absolutely correct.
When tho offioiat result is declared,
however, the variation, if any, will
not amount to more than a half
lo/.en votes one way or the other.
They show conclusively thc trend of
sentiment throughout the county :

As is uot infrequently their wout, the
Sont hern peuple ai o giving full sway to
their impulses in tho cordiality of their
welcome to Pr?sident Roosevelt. Iiis
tup from Washington to Jacksonville
has given occasion for a successiou of
ovations which could scarcely have boon
equal ted i ami certainly oould not have
been excelled, in enthusiasm, in any
other scctioo of the country. Aud it
should be said, too, that if tho hosts of
the occasion havo given themselves over
toa veiitable riot of personal and patri
otic fervor, their guest has eutorod into
tho spirit of their ecatacy with a readi
ness and an abandon which has balked
at nothing which promised to promote
the continuance of the revel.
At Haleigh, so a corespondent of tho
Baltimore Sun informs us, President
Roosevelt assured certain gentlemen that
be was as ardently opposed to social
equality and intermarriage of the races
as any Southern white man could be; nt

Stars and Pars and asserted his fellow

In a moro serious vein, during tho
course of his set speeches, ho has dealt
with national problems with which bis
auditors wore mostly intimately con
cerned and for vastly tho most part he
has professed to seo them from a view
point which is vastly popular in tho
South, lt is not too much to say that
the President's tour of the South bas
resolved itself into an apparently uuad
joumable meeting of a mutual admira

between thom as to which shall express

In Atlanta tho President dwelt upon
the menace contained in the rapid
growth of individual wealth. Ile do-1
dared the Federal regulation of corpora
tions an inevitable necessity of tho fu
ture, and he sought at some length to
justify the faith that was in him. Put
he warned his hearers that industry ami
enterprise must not bo impelled by tho
imposition upon thom of a restraint and
control which would hamper or retard
them. His referenco to tho lifo insur
ance scandals was somawhal vague in
terms, but it was snlliciontly specific in
intention to satisfy those who reprehend
tho abuses uncovered by the Armstrong
committee that he is with thom in pur
pose. Realizing tho shock that had been
administered by theso things to tho pub
lic OOnsoienoe, bo declared that public
opinion must bo looked to to redress its
own wrongs by outlawing tho men and
measures reprehended. Ho dwelt upon
the South's concern in ber groat staple
production, and promised to seek to ro
movo causes which appeared to monaco
its best interests. Tho boycott in China
being ono of these, bo discussed ways
and means of an equitable adjustment of

Neither party to this delightful re

of good fellowship constantly rises

it will all come ? hon high tide is reached

There was, as usual, a large congrega

Kev. .J. K. Karlo preached ono of tho

"Church Fellowship." Wc don't believe

Our Governor in Atlanta.
Atlanta, October 21.-This morning
< ?overnor Hoy ward paid a somi-offloial
and porsonal visit to Governor Terrell at
tho state House. Governor Hoyward,
among other things, discussed the recent
Act of tho Georgia General Assembly as
to the boundary between Georgia and
.South Carolina. Tho question appears
to have arisen with regard to thc possi
hie uso of certain water powers in tho
Piedmont sectiou between Oconeo and
Ilahcrsham counties. Thcro does not
appear to bo any merit in tho Georgia
contention, and Governor Terrell has
tentatively abandoned the possible claim
of (fcorgia as to either the Tugaloo or
Keoweo rivers, and tho contention of
South Carolina seems all right.
Govornor Terrell had the situation in
vestigated, and the tentative (minion
rondored him was: "I am, therefore of
tho opinion that originally the Keoweo
and not the Tugaloo river was tho boun
dary above thc continence forming thc
Savannah river, but by tho treaty of
Beaufort and Goorgia's long acquiescence
therein she is bound hy thu agreement
