.Mr. Editor. we are not like your
Vheeland correspondent. We are
ot going to ask your opinion on a
ubject and then go on and announce
hat so far as we are concerned we
re going to do that which we want to
o. We have ~too high a regard for
he editor's opinion to ask it and then
urn around and tell him that we don't
are for it, that we are going to do
ust as we are going to do, his opin
)n to the contrary nevertheless not
ithstanding. No we are not going
r cut ourself off from the opinion of
ood men and when we ask it we
:ant to be in position to accept it.
To our mind the minds of 99 per
ent. of the voters are already made
p just as our friends above was and
11 this ado about discussing the ques
ion is to befog and becloud the issue,
nd as far as possible muddy the wa
er all that it can be. To our mina
he time of decision on this question
,f the dispensary was when the in
ividual took upon himself the vows
f the church and now is the time for
ction for church members. Those
;ho are not church members are not
ncluded in the above remarks, as
hey are only addressed to those who
ave caken upon themselves the ob
gations of a church member. We
rould say in this connection that if
he church members of Newberry
ounty will live up to the promises
hat they made their God and the
ongregation of which they became
member there is no question as to
what their position should be and we
ill say will be.
