.The fight South Carolina, North
' -Carolina and Virginia are making on
the reorganization proposed by the
American Tobacco Company f under
the decision of the Supreme Court
' ordering it to dissolve, shows very
plainly that the decision did not hurt
the tobacco trust.
Tie Times and Democrat has
never, and does not now, advocate
the return of the dispensary, but it
does not agree with, the, fanatics
who hold that the sopalled prohibi
tion that we now have in nearly all
the counties of South Carolina is
above criticism or comparison with
the Old dispensary law.
The Newberry Observer says the
^'carnival of crime" Is no' argument
for the return of the dispensary. It
la an argument, though, for a more
honest and more rigid enforcement
of the law against the sale of li
quor." We think nearly every news
paper in the State will agree to this.
The Times and Democrat for one
A colored lodge of Free Masons
in Alken County unanimously ex
pelled one of its members, one G. L.
Livingston, for aiding Arthur Bow
en to escape after his dastardly crime
at Springfield. We commend the ac
' *iion of these colored masons to all
other colored societies, and would
advise the white people to keep an
eye on Livingston, who was expelled.
Clinton Glover, the negro who was
convicted of having entered a white
lady's room at St. George and at
tempting a criminal assault on her,
"will not hang at the time appointed
as an appeal has been taken in his
case. Such delays as this encourages
fiends to commit these cfimes, and is
responsible largely for lynch law,
that all good citizens must depre
' We agree with the Spartanburg
Journal that "there is no reason why
the knifing of the democratic legisla
tive candidates by the Smith-Nugent
party machine In New Jersey should
?weaken Gov. Woodrow Wilson in the
estimation of the people of the coun
try at large. On the contrary this
ought to be a tribute to him in their
estimation, and will be when fully
The Newberry Observer says: "As
to the character of the liquors fur
nished by dispensary and blind tigers,
we doubt if there is much If any dif
ference. They are likely manufac
tured by the same parties. There
could hardly be aaything worse than
the famous fuss X." As we have
never had any experience with either
hind, wre will have to accept The Ob
server's statement. .
It is said that it will be at least
two years before th& Steel Trust can
ft>e brought before the United States
Supreme Court, and if it puts up a
good pile of boodle to keep the Re
publicans in power it will go harm
less when It does gei there. All this
pretended prosecution of the trusts is
nothing more than a new fat frying
process invented \o make them cough
up the boodle to swell the Republi
can campaign fund next year.
The Newberry Observer says:
"There are all sorts of liquors, and
the quality one buys depends on the
price, whether he buys it from the
dispensary or from a liquor house
direct. All the 'fiendish* decoctions'
are not sold by blind tigers; Indeed
It was about dispensary liquor that
the 'old toper' made the remark as
to the bull dog and the Jack rabbit."
The Times and Democrat knowB
nothing about the price or quality
of liquor It based its remark on
blind tiger whiskey being a "fiendish
concoction" on the testimony of
chemists who analyzed it at Green
ville and Anderson in murder pases.
The Newberry Observer says: "It
fcas come as we expected: the old
dispensaryites are attributing the
wa* ? of crime to blind tiger liquor,
ami ulind tiger liquor to prohibition.
Our esteemed cotemporary, the Or
angeburg Times and Democrat is
among the first to raise the cry and
demand the return of the dispen
sary; because, it says, prohibition
doeB not prohibit." The statement
that The Times and Democrat de
mands the return of the dispensary
because prohibition does not prohib
it is absolutely false, and it chal
lenges The Observer to produce one
line from its columns to substantiate
its false charge.
Taft's Vetoes Were the Issue.
The Republicans made President
Taft's vetoes of the wool and cotton
schedules as revised by the Demo
crats in Congress the issues in Mas
sachusetts in last Tuesdt-y's election.
The Rep'.i dican/candidate for gover
nor, Lools A. Frothingham, in all his
speeches during the campaign, made
the support of the President the key
note of his appealB to the people.
The PresI denft himself in a speech be
fore the Essex County Republican
club, called upon the people of State
to elect Frothingham and sustain
him In his policy of protection to the
industries of Massachusetts.
At the same meeting at which
President Taft made his appeal to
the people to sustain his vetoes by
voting for Frothingham, Senator
Lodge predicted that the Te-election
of'Governor Foss would mean a Dem
ocratic president and a subsequent
revision of the tariff that v/ould be
harmful to the textile industries of
(Massachusetts. Hard times and
panic have been predicted In case of
a Democratic victory by all the Re
publican stump speakers in the indus
The Republican manager openly
declared that the reelection of Gov
ernor Foss would be construed by the
people of the nation as a direct slap
at President Taft. Governor Foss did
not dodge the issue of tariff reform,
claiming that it was one of the
things most needed by the people.
He al3o claimed reeleation on the
ground that his administration had
teen beneficial to the people of the
State, and pointed to the many pro
gressive measures that had been
passed since he was elected governor
last year. > ? ?
. This was the position of the two
parties in Tuesday's election. It will
be seen that the people of Massachu
setts were called upon to pass "djb
rectly upon President Taft, and his
vetoes of tariff reform measures.
They condemned both by reelecting
Governor Foss. This is one. bf the
most signal backsets President Taft
has yet received. He appealed to the
people to sustain him, and they re
plied by politically slapping him in
the face. According to Senator Lodge
the people of Massachusetts have put
themselves on record as being in
favor of the election of a Democratic
President and a revision of the tariff.

Boll Weevil is Most Here.
The Augusta Chronicle says it is
a common thing to hear farmers in
South Carolina and Georgia declare
that the boll weevil will never reach
either of these States, and that too,
despite the warnings of the State
Agricultural Colleges and Experi
ment Stations and the preachings of
government experts. The farmer
that believes that the boll weevil will
not come to South Carolina, and Geor
gia will realize their mistake now
pretty soon, as the boll weevil is
nearly here now.
The experience of Texas, Missis
sippi and Louisiana and now the
news that the. bolliweevil" has invad
ed six counties in Alabama, ought to
make Georgia and South Carolina sit
up and take<motice. The lesson of
the boll weevil is crop diversification.
He stops the raising of cotton and
it is necessary to raise other crops
if the people are not to go hungry
and .starve. Our farmers ought to
be making arrangements to meet the
changed conditions that are surely
In speaking of the advance of the
boll weevil into Alabama, the Mont
gomery Advertiser says "the people
of Alabama must view his advance
with the same fearsome interest with
which they would see the approach
of a hostile army. The weevil is the
greatest menace to our agricultural
prosperity which has arisen since the
war. His coming means a recasting,
a radical change in our farming op
erations in the southern half of Ala
bama. This will be a diflicult and
an arduous task, but it is the only
way in which he can be successfully
"Cotton can be grown and it can
be grown profitably under boll weevil
conditions. 'But it icannot be grown
as we have been accustomed to grow
it, after the boll weevil comes, and
money made on its production. The
Alabama farmer has been flooded
with advice as to what he should do,
now that the boll weevil has come.
He has the experience of Texas, Mis
sissippi and Louisiana before him
and he should know how farmers in
those States have made money in
raising cotton, notwithstanding, the
boll weevil and its work."

Slap at President Taft.
President Taft has some views
which he Is fond of expressing on the
initiative, referendum and recall. He
uttered some of these thoughts when
he vetoed the Arizona Statehood bill.
Among other things he declares:
"I love judges, and I love courts.
They are my ideals, that typify on
earth what we shall meet afterward
in heaven under a just God. The
recall is so pernicious in its effect,
so destructive of independence in the
judiciary, so likely to subject th^
rights of the individual to the possi
ble tyranny of a populur majority
and, therefore, so Injurious to the
cause of free government that there
could be no system more Ingeniously
devised to subject judges to mome
tary gusts of pasfion."
It is declared that California in
Its recent election has administered
the most impressive rebuke ever giv
en a Republican President by a Re
publican state. That state aQopted
the initiative, the referendum and re
call by the following large majori
ties: For the initiative and refer
dum, 138,181; against 44,810. For
the recall, 148,572; against 46,290.
Go way back and sit down, 'Mr. Taft
Figuring on Ginners' Report.
The Spartanburg Journal says tak
ing the average per cent of cotton
ginned for the last three years as a
basis of calculation, the present crop
will amount to 15,288,000 bales.
That leaves 5,319,800 bales to be
ginned after November 1. It 18
claimed and generally believed that
on account of the early maturity of
the crop that amount will not he
ginned. Suppose there will be 20
per cent less than the estimate, then
the present crop will reach 14,154,
033 bales. Take this State's crop re
ported at i;021,972. The average
amount ginned up to the first day of
November for the last three years has
been 65.8 per cent. Making a cal
culation on this basis the crop will be
1,553,000 bales. Making a 20 per
cent reduction on the balance of
531,028 bales to be ginned the prop
will then be 1,446,895 bales, a larger
crop than the 'State ever made. Tex
as has ginned 3,210,218 bales to
date. The calculation applied above
will give that State a crop of 4,
218,000 bales. The final account will
give her four mdl'tion bales.
