COLONEL m

Has Been Confined to His
Home on Account of Ill
ness, but Leaves Today
to Push His
Candidacy.
CoL:l|^tP.;-T!ribble?'-who has boen
confined -, to' bis homo on account of ill
ness and - who has not been able to join
tho campaign since it opened, has re
covered hia strength oufficiently to make
the trip and leaves today to join the
party at Gaffney.
The impression has been made on the
public it is said by some of his oppon
ents that he would never bo able to
make the race, and that if .he made tho
race and won that he would never be
able to take charge of the office of
Secretary of State.
Cob Tribble is just like everybody
?he, liable to get sick and die and just
as liable to get sick and get well. It
iii ic ol talk to Bay that just because a
mon has been down Bick for a few
weeks that he will never get well
again. Col. Tribble has too good a
constitution to lay down, pine away
and die for nothing. He stands just as
good a chance to see the dirt shoveled
in on his opponents as they have of see
ing it thrown, in on him.
Col. Tribble is about himself again
and within a few days will be able to
get about ' as lively among the voters
of South Carolina as any of his oppon
ents.
The. name of the next Secretary of
State will be BI. P. Tribble.

Although there is some doubt as to
whether the Health Officer has a right
to inspect slaughtering pens outside of
the city, Officer Martin has made a
trip to: the slaughtering pens. It is
said that the officer found some of them
tn rather bad condition. One in par
ticular, it is said, was in exceedingly
bad condition. ..
rln^Anderson, as well as every other
city, the market is the biggest item in
the eating bill, and it is strange that
tho markets of this city do hot receive
more attention from " officers whose
business it should be to make trips
daily to marketB, and. where they find
spoiled meats or meats not. butchered
right, to condcrin them and. see that
they are nr c faced on sale.: In cities

The people of Honea Path entertain
ed the Association in a most creditable
manner and fully sustained their repu
tation a? -..lovers of good things to eat
and hospitality in abundance. Though
the weather was uncertain, a tremen
dous crowd was present and e"erybody
enjoyed themselves.
The handsome pebble-dashed Church
just completed by the Baptists at
Honea Path received many compli
ments for its beauty and its arrange
ments.

Seventy-five years ago the crusade
against strong drink j bad hardly begun ;
prohibition was unknown. The ideas
Of Jefferson and Jackson; as to freedom
*^<kmc*racy were rampant in Amer
ica, they had almost been carried to
the extreme and the idea of personal
freedom with many persons .Was prac-'
tically equivalent to unlimited license.
A writer in Munsey's Magazine (July
^August, 1905)shows that at that pe
riod the; li^
nigh universal, ^favtmV counter'that
there we re many hundreds of thousands
f?^*-. . dran?t to [ ' a^c****;
a??1 Were,'.many moro, b m dreds
Vn^WrW; drank regularly, but
with some moderation, and that the
per capita consumption of Kqi? were
rVery nmcb higher than now.
^?aredl'?'^'t?he';. conscience of the -fi?l?
tion began to awake and corm?or.
and American r/oannpod began to
themselves. :vPntit?jt?t?n>ei^'Y
change. . Everywhere from one
of this country to the other, people
commenced to take a truer and saner
view of the frightful evil of drink, and
for seventy-five years, led on by such
pioneers as John B. Gough and Lorenzo
Dow, and Inter by such great leaders
as Frances Willard and Dwight L.
Moody, the Christian manhood of the
nation has marched against this central
stronghold of the evil one. Open
drunkenness is no longer tolerated
j among good people, and it is no longer
j regarded as the distinguishing mark of
j a gentleman to sit longest at the ban
I quet board and be the last to f ;o under
the table. Prior to this awakening
even many of the preachers drank, and
they do in England and some other
countries today, and nothing was
thought of it. We havo had old in
habitants to tell us of preachera of the
I olden time who thought nothing of tak
: lng their morning dram and who would
even join their parishioners in dispos
ing of a bottle on the streets of the
town.
What a remarkable advance in pub
lic sentiment in America since that
time! Today one-half of the
American people have prohibition laws
and the remaining one-half have re
stricted the traffic in varying degrees.
The article in Munsey's gives a map
showing that all of Maine and Kansas,
nearly all of Mississippi and several
other States, and hundreds of counties
in New York, hundreds in Ohio, hun
dreds in Indiana and Illinois, hundreds
in Georgia and Texas and in other
great States have entirely prohibited
the sale of intoxicating l'quors. In
fact, in these great States and in near
ly all other States except in the very
far west, the Bale of liquor is now
practically confined to the great cities,
and it is plain to be seen that it is only
a matter of time until this damnablo
traffic must give way everywhere be
fore the onward march of intelligent
Christian sentiment.
If we of this generation do your duty
in the matter, the next twenty-five
years will see an advance as great as
that made during the last seventy-five
years, and the century from 1828 to
1930 will mark the everlasting doom of
this everlasting traffic. We look ba?k
with surprise and horror upon the con
ditions that existed in our country
seventy-five years ago, and we think
we have advanced-which unquestion
ably we have-but our descendants
seventy-five years from now, in study
ing the history of this generation, will
regard with equal surprise and horror
the conditions of the present time and
will be equally thankful for the cycle
of progress covering the seventy-five
years between our time and theirs.
South Carolina, thank God, is mak
ing some progress. Counties contain
ing almost half of her population have
said that it shall be no longer legal
within our borders for men to sell tc
their brethren. the poison that destroys
them, body, intellect and soul, and
condemns their innocent families to suf
fer. Since this Association met las!
fifteen counties have voted out thc
dispensary? Union, Laurens, Williams
burg, Newberry? Marion, York, Horry,
Lancaster, Darlington, Ocone?, Spar
? tanburg? Greenville, - Anderson, Edge
j field and Saluda. Two counties, Cher
I okee .and Pickens, had already done th<
same thing. Two other counties
?Greenwood and Marlboro,, had nevei
i had a dispensary, so that nineteen o
our counties, or nearly half of the to
tal number, have shown t'jeir fetentioi
?.that the whiskey traffic shall not b<
legalized within their borders, a?" ?gi
i in Williamsburg and Laurens the elec
i tiona , were declared invalid hy th
court. ,
* For the first six months in the city o
; Ander jon this year there were 404 caae
int he police court. The last year for i
corresponding period there were 702
Fer the first six months this year ther
WfcTO 140 cases for drunkenness; las
year there were 339, For the first at
months of this year, in the city o
Greenville there were 337 arrests; io
i the six months preceding that time
when the dispensary was in op?ration
there were 647 arrests. Other .?fui
ties send similar reports. A-*M.ytjg?
facta'are most gratifying to all ot.%
who have lifted a . voice or cast a ba
lot for thc p?/ity of the home and th
peace and good name of our countie
and our State.
j But there is work yet to dp, and
! great deal of it. Brethren; we ra
\ upon you to do your duty in that wy
'^o'1 things now call for' your- ruo*
prayerful attention as Christian cit
zens- l. To do all in you* power to ei
force the laws that we have on tr.
subject; and (2) to aid . in improvin
those laws. Intelligent citizens &t
not be told anything more of the g?gai
tic system ol fraud and corruption thi
has grown up in this State under tl
State3 dispensary system; they net
not be told any more about the trio
mous increa&e of the salo of liquor ui
dei- this system within the past fe
years: they need not be humiliated t
pointing to the spectacle of their ow
fair State engaged in the business <
pushing the sale of the Wrea of vjfhi

^Theo;eU
cess of any politician means less
to them than the welfare of the boys
and girls, of the mothers and homes,
of their county and their State. They
have no quarrel with those that do not
see as they do; they concede to them
equal honesty of purpose; but with
love and toleration, wi?h determination
and firmness, with hope, faith and con
secration they are moving upward and
onward towards the only final solution
of this great problem that is possible
the right solution-the triumph of
right and the suppression of wrong.
Respectfully submitted,
B. F. Martin,
Chairman.
Slabtown "News.
Mi BS Addie Scott has returned from
a visit to friends in Hartwell, Ga., and
is entertaining a house party this
week, in her lovely country home near
Pisgah.
Mr. and Mrs. Ed Blassingame of
Van Alatyne, Texas, are on a visit to
relatives and friends. This is the first
visit back since leaving here for Texas
fifteen years ago. Their old friends
are giving them the glad hand of wel
come. It is not to be wondered at
that the wanderers turn again with
eager feet to the dear old home State.
Why should not there be a home
coming day for South Carolinians as
well as Georgians and Kentuckians?
There is not a better State in the
Union. What it lacks in size it makes
up in the extra quality of its people
and its products.
Mi's. S. E. Paxton and daughter,
Miss Mabel Paxton, of Fort Worth,
Texas, are the guests of Mrs. J. M.
Browne and family, also Mrs. Myrtle
Ahlman and children. Dr. Ahlman
was recalled to Texas last week by
the demands< of his extensive practice.
Mrs. Paxton was a Mi.s Miller before
marriage and a native-born South Car
olinian. Like all others she loves to
return to the land .of her nativity oc
casionally.
Protracted services will commence
at the Presbyterian Church here Wed
nesday night, conducted by the paBtor,
Rev. A. W. White, assisted by the
Rev. W. A. v Matheson of Easley. We
hope the services will be well attend
ed and productive of much good.
F. M. Glenn, our accommodating
Rural Carrier, visited relatives at Eas
ley Saturday.
Mr. T. J. Watkins of Nashville,
Tenn., is visiting his father, Capt.
Willis Watkins, who is still quite sick.
Miss Ida Jamison, one of Pierce
town's most estimable yoUng ladies,
visited friends here last week.
Miss Jennie Blassingame has returned
to Pickens after a stay of some weeks
with the family of her uncle, Capt. G.
A. Rankin.
We are glad to note that Mr. John
Prince is able to be out again after a
protracted illness of six wotks.
The rains have held up for the last
few day h and farmers are busy sowing
turnips, and putting in the long delay
ed last wbik of laying by crops. The
continued rains has caused cotton to
make a large weed, but it will be
found ut gathering time that the July
crop will be short. . *
Senator Hood Withdraws.
Hon. ' John K. Hood, who filed his
pledge as a candidate for the State
Senate at the eleventh hour last Fri
day, has withdrawn from the race;
It' has been known all along that
Senator Hood did not desire re-election
but he would have made the race had
Cant. Sullivan not entered.
Senator Hood was very anxious for
Capt. Sullivan to \ run and after he
learned for certain that the Captain
would remain in the race he then with
drew. ? " '
In withdrawing from the race Sena
tor Hood writes a card to The Intelli
gencer which explains itself:
Fd i tor .Intelligencer: When I filed a
pledge for the Senate the other day
just a few minutes before the time ex
Sired for filing, and after learning that
Ir, Breazeale had withdrawn and that
Mr. Watson had entered the race, I
had no intention of making the race if
Mr. Geo. W. Sullivan continued in the
race, as I hoped he would.
^Mr. Watson and I disagreed so se
riously during the last session of the
legislature with regard to certain men
and matters connected with tho dis
pensary that I felt it to be my duty to
file a pledge, under tho now conditions
so quickly occurring so as to insure an
opportunity to the voters of this coun
ty to decide between Mr. Watson's
vif .wa on those men and matters and
'ie views of those who disagreed with
h-m, ahould Mr. Sullivan be unable to
make the race for any reason.
Hence I filed a pledge so that Mr.
Sullivan, who was not in the city that
day. could be informed of the new sit
uation,-and as he has written that he
wiii remain in the race to the finish, I
have withdrawn my pledge, and, of
course, will not enter the race.
