As to Social Clubs.
An unfavorable committee report
has been made on Mr. Ear4hardt's
bill in the house to abolish social
clubs, and it seems altogether prob
able 'the measure will receive unfav
orable consideration at the hands of
the house. In our opinion it is well.
We fail to see where any great
amount of good could be accomplish
ed by abolishing social clubs. We
have no doubt some of these clubs
in the larger cities are run in viola
tion of the dispensary law. But be
cause a social club in Charleston, for
instance, sells a drink of whiskey, is
it desired to abolish the Commercial
Club in Charleston and the Cosmo
politan Club in Columbia? The leg
islature might as well attempt -Eo say
that a man shall not keep whiskey
in his home as that tw,; or three, or
possibly fifty or a hundred men shall
not: keep whiskey for their own use
in any place they may choose. The
bill ought not to pass, and probably
has already'been buried by the.un
favorable committee report.
The Crusade Against Crime.
In 'his recent annual report to the
general. assembly Attorney General
Gur%er says: "The crusade against
crime recently instituted in this State
by the patriiotic citizens generally,
and the pulpit and press particular
ly, has had'an appreciably wholesome
effect. Such efforts have been prop
erly directed, for the only hope of
improvement in any record of crime
is to educate public sentiment to a
degree that it considers crime, as
such, degrading, and the criminal
obnoxious." The attorney general is
right. A healthy public sen-timent
is-.what is. needed to stamp out crime.
We believe conditions in this state
are improving an.d we believe this
improvement will continue.

A Columbia special to the News
and Courier of yesterday morning
denies the rumor that Senator Til!
man is seriously ill, and continues:
"Senator Tillman is at his home in
Trenton, w4here he is as well as he
was when he left Washington to re
cuperate from the grip. He is up
and about, attending to things about
the place, and his chief concern is
that his beautiful flowers bhave been
injured by Ehe recent cold snap."
While the State rejoices, of course,
that Senator Tillman is in excellent
health, it sympathizes with him deep
ly in the injury to his beautiful
eowers, as a result of the recent cold
snap. We all sincerely hope the
flowers may speedily recover.
Immediately after the great fire in
Baltimore some leadeing society wo
men of the city opened lunch counter
establishments for business men until
better arrangements could be made.
The enterprises have paid such hand
some dividends that the society wo
men have decided to keep on, turning
over to subordinates the actual work
of running the eatEing 'houses.
