MUST STAND TO THE RACK.
Politicians Trying to Crowd Mr
Jones Out, Says the Herald.
Petitions are circulating in Charles
ton for signatures, preparatory t(
holding an election in that city an<
'county for voting out the dispensary
There are five thousand qualified vo
ters in Charleston county, and it wil
be necessary to procure the signa
- tures of thirteen hundred of thes<
S:Qualified voters before an election car
'be called. It really matters very little
however, to the balance of the stat<
what. Charleston concludes to do it
the matter, as she has been a lam
unto herself, as regards the dispen
sary, ever since the law was inaugu
r-atcd. But speaking of the dispensar:
question brings up several feature!
'which it might be well to consider
.and one of them is, why has thii
dight been so suddenly inaugurate(
against the dispensary in certain bor
<der counties? and why 'has it beer
-done just at this particular time? 0
course the average, unsuspecting vo
ter will be told that there is no poli
cal significance in the matter-jus
simply a religious and moral upris
ing again,,t the dispensary! But thi
cel political significance of the mat
-ter is that the politicians that hav4
been trying to get office on any ol(
platform have ridden so many differ
.ent kinds of horses in their races foi
the various offices in the past, an<
'have -so completely played all point:

game these politicians are now play
