ANDERSON AND CRIME
Jail is Empty for Several Weeks at
a Time-Dispensary System
Not the Cause.
One of the favorite assertions of
the anti-dispensary advocates is, that
crime has been increasing since the
dispensary has been established.
We doubt if it can be proven that
this is true as to the s-tate at large,
and we know it is not true as to An
On the contrary crime has been
decreasing in this county. During
the past two or three years our coun
ty jail has stood empty for weeks at
a :me, something not known sinc'
the civil war. Circuit judges who
come to Anderson from other coun
ties to preside over our courts are
surprised at the small number of
cases on the dockets, and nearly all
of them have complimenced and con-;
gratulated the pecple of the county
from the -bench. Our grand juries
have called attention time and again
to t.he spirit of law and order pre
vailing in the county.
We believe it is a fact that will
be substantiated by the records that
Anderson county has less crime ac
cording to population than any coun
in the state.
We do not pretend to say that the
dispensary is responsible for this de
crease in crime. On the contrary
we believe the dispensary had little
if anything to do with it. The real
explanation is to be found in the
progress and prosperty of the coun
ty and ti.e fact that all our people
can find steady and profitable em
ployment all the year round. We
have few if any idlers in the county,
and people who work do not violate
But whatever the cause it is a fact
that crime is not increasing in An
derson county. It is 'decreasing and
I been decreasing for years. Those
wt set themselves up to be reform
ers should stick to dhe facts and the
record. In their zeal to achieve cheir
ends, which ends may be entirely
ommendable, they should not make
wrong and harmful statements about
their own county.
Though, the majority rules, the
inority insists on telling the ma
ority how to do it.

It needs but little foresight, to tell,
that when your stomach and liver are
badly affected, grave trouble is ahead,
unless you take the proper medicine for
your disease, as Mrs. John A. Young, of

neuralgia of the liver and stomach, my
heart was weakened, and I could not
eat. I was very bad for a long time,
but in Electric Bitters, I found just
what I needed, for they quickly relieved
and cured me." Best medicine for
