The Press Association.
I desire to call the attention of the
members of the South Carolina Press
association, and in fact all editors
and publishers, in South Carolina, tc
the annual meeting of the association
which will be held at White Stont
Springs, July iith to 14th. The
program has been issued. It contain;
practical subjects, which will be dis
cussed by practical newspaper men
and I am satisfied will prove inter
esting and instructive to all who may
be present. In addition to this, tht
meeting together and the elbow
touch of men engaged in the sam<
business, must prove beneficial. I
trust, therefore, that we will have th<
largest and most representative meet
ing in the history of the association

best care of the members, and at

of the Southern Railway, will speak
Col. Hardwick is a southern man an<
a friend to, and a believer in th<
press, and we fell that we have don
good service for the association it
securing him for this occasion.
In regard to the trip to Portland
Oregon, I desire to announce that
have made some progress in per
fecting the arrangements, and that i
is my plan to use a private car fron
the starting point until we return, an'
that we will live on the car during thi
entire trip. This will make it cheaper
and much more pleasant and con
venient. In order to do this the max
inum in the party cannot excee<
twenty-five, nor would I care to. ar
range with less than_ twenty. In re
gard to the expense I shall be glai
to furnish an estimate of that to an:

E. H. Aull,
Mr. Blease states that the count:
l'as on hand now to run it until th,
time for collecting taxes in the fal
only $2,4o0.10. It will -be remember
ed that a good deal was said in th
county campaign last year about th
levy in this county being raised t
three mills all on account of some
body's error and that Mr. Aull sal<
he had the three mills put in becaus
it would take three mills to run th
gcvernment with the expenses a
what they had been. This $2,403.10i
part of that three mill levy and th
only part left and this only the mid
dle of June. And that too with th
dispensary profits. The levy has bee:
reduced to 2 1-2 mills for next yea
which will only result in a bigger de
ficit. It is true the delegation las
year agreed to make the levy 2 1
mills. but the amendment did not ge
:n. Mr. Aul! was put down as a hig.
tax man because he wanted to mak<
the levy large enough to mee.t the ex
penses and held that the represent:a
tives in the~ !cgislature could not :e
duce county expenses. Take Mr
Blease's 8Egures and see it vou ea:
talked about high taxes, but (lid no

In an -anti-dispensary fight it is
well to consider what will come after.
This is not a prohibition movement,
but rather an anti-dispensary fight.
The question which seems to be the
only one thought of is to remove the
dispensary and it is going to be re
moved, there is little doubt of that,
but in doing it we should take some
thought of what is to follow. Of
course, it will be nominal prohibition
and if the anti-dispensary sentiment
is also a prohibition sentiment there
will be less trouble in having the law
enforced. We fear that the anti-dis
pensary sentiment is not a prohibi
Itwas stated in a dispatch from Co
lunbia on the Saturday of the mass
meeting in the court house to con
sider the question of getting up pe
titions asking an election on the dis
pea,say-" that the "Aulls, Senator
Blease and 'Hub' Evans" would
have or agreed to have a conference
the next week to organize the dis
pensary forces. We do not know
upon what authority this news was
sent out, but in justice to all parties
we desire to say that so far as we
are concerned no such agreement was
entered into and as a matter of fact
Senator Blease was down in the
Horse Creek Valley in the interest of
I the order of Red Men and if "Hub"
Evans was in the city we do not
. know it. So far as we are concerned
we care very little about it one way
t or the other. When the dispensary
was first established this newspaper
I opposed it as vigorously as any one.
We have said since and say it now,
that in its practical operation, so far
as this county is concerned it is bet
ter than what we had. Whether it is
better than what we will have when
it is voted out is another question.
- We doubt it very seriously. We are
t somewhat in the position of a certain
1 candidate for governor when asked
where he stood on this question. He
said he was in favor of letting the
people have' what they want.
The Pickens dispensary has not

- some weeks ago and the people voted
- .it closed. The attorney general's of
I fice holds that under the Weeks
Elloree decision by the supreme court
it is the business of the county board
to act in closing the dispensary. The
Pickens county board, through Mr.
Cox, its chairman, wrote the gover
nor that. "the reason why the board
has not taken any action is that they
have been waiting orders from the
state board, as we are acting under
eThe governor replied that it is the
duty of the county board to act in the
matter oi closing a dispensary after
an election has been held without
any reference to the state board of
directors." This was on Saturd.ay
and it is supposed the dispensary
will be closed. It is said when it was
rumored that the dispensary would
close on a certain day that the de
mand for whiskey was so great the
people could not be waited on.
