The light on thc dispensary system
goes steadily on and elections under
the Rricc bill have been ordered in
thc following counties: York, Septem
ber 20: Horry, October Florence,
October 3; Lancaster, October '.'<:,
Marion, September IM; Spartanburg,
November IL In (?rcenvillc and An
derson counties the elections will be
ordered during the fall, no dates hav
ing been fixed yet. Cherokee, J'ick
ens, Union and Newberry have had
elections and in each instance voted
out the dispensary by big majorities.
The present agitation undoubtedly
means thc entering wedge for the over,
throw of the whiskey monopoly in
Ex-Governor John Gary Evans in
a published card comes to thc defenso
of the dispensary system. Ile de
clares that the newspapers do not call
for the punishment of the corruption
iet?, but in some cases defend them
in order to discredit the law. This
is the indictment of a man whose ofli
cial record and whose public acts have
failed to win thc respect of good
citizens. It is thc function of a news
paper to seek the truth and publish it
to all tho world, but it is not tho
prosecuting officer of tho State.
Publicity is what the grafter most
fears, and it is this publicity and
light that accomplish BO much in thc
way of ridding tho public service of
thieves. Perhaps the newspapers
had too much to aay about dispensary
rebates when the honorable gentleman
sought a scat in thc United States
WHAT JAPAN UAH WON.
The treaty of peace between Russia
and Japan was signed yesterday and
the consummation of this great event
of international importance brings to
an end ono of thc greatest sttuggles
in the history of the world. Thc de
mands of the JapancBc government
were materially modified before they
were accepted in their entirety by the
Russian envoys. Japan was magnan
imous and receded from her original
position in regard to au indemnity
and the cession of tho island of Sak
But it was not a fruitless victory
for Japan. The New York American
sets down the things which wero won
by force of arms, and ns it well says,
the two prizes at the head, will be
found the most valuable, even though
they are not likely to be mentioned in
treaty or protocol. Here is the list:
I. Place among the great Powers
when greatness is reckoned according
to military and naval prowess.
II. Place among the great Powers
when greatness is reckoned, as it
should be, according to tho civilized
instinct for peaco and industrial de
III. Thc better half of the Island
of Sakhalin-tho more fertile part,
and the part which oontrols tho only
strait by which vessels from Vladivos
tok oan outer the Pacific.
IV. Port Arthur, Russia's only ice
frce harbor, with all its fortifications
and publio buildings.
V. Dalny, thc Czar's great city,
built to order at a cost of uncounted
millions; a city of monumental gran
ite buildings, thc potential Hong
Kong of Northern Asia.
VI. Recognition of Japan's "pre
ponderating influence" in Korea,
whioh practically moans that Korea
shall be a Japanese province, opening
a plaoe for the surplus population of
the Chrysanthemum Isles.
VII. Russian evaouation of Man
churia really tba one thing for which
Japan went to war. It will leavo
Manchuria to the Chinese, and Japan
will yeC be-if it is not now-the
strongest infiuenoe in China.
VIII. The railroad between Port
Arthur, Dalny and Harbin.
IX. The oomplete cession to Ja
pan of the entire Liaotang peninsula.
X. Fishing rights along che Siberi

of Hr. J. Martin Marett winged ita
eternal flight into the great beyond.
His father. Stephen Albert Marett,
predeceased him only a few short

Marett, where death soon relieved him
of all his earthly sufferings. About 18
Sears ago MT. Marett was married to
[isa Vada Reeder, eldest daughter of
Mrs. M. J. Reeder, now of Westmin

boys still survive him. The funeral
services were hold at thc Beaverdam
Baptist Church by the Rev. Mr. Mc
Daniel, assisted by Rev. R. W. Nel

rest under the auspices of the Wood
men of the Woiid, of which order he
was a faithful member. To the be
