The Election Today.
The election will (be held today c
the dispensary. The question has bec
pretty thoroughly discussed in th
county and every one ought to kno
just how he wants to vote. There
no reason why we should not have
quiet and peaceable election toda
and we would be pleased to see
full vote so that we might have
full expresion of all the voters in 1
county. In Pickens and Union whei
elections have been held only aboi
one-third of the Total vote of tl
counties was polled. Of course
was the fault of those who did n<
vote and they have no right to obie
and the result might not have bec
changed if the full vote had be(
It should be remembered that wha
ever the result in this county tod,
there can be no election again on ti
question for four years.
The Herald and News favors tl
abolition of the state dispensary ai
the state constabulary and then I
each county say what it wants. M
do not believe the people are rea<
for prohibition, nor do we believe
prohibitory law will amount to mut
where so large a minority uses whi
key as a beverage and believes th
it is not wrong so to do. Besides
great mary who will vote again
the dispensary are not prohibitionis
and when the two are put togeth
you will have a majority who do n
favor prohibition. With public se
timent in that condition ycu will ha
a very difficult task to enforce ai
prohibitory law, and so-called prol
bition will be a failure. The evils
intemperance will not be minimiz
but rather increased. However,

of the people want to give a trial
If the matter were left to cotIo

If Mr. Jones was only giving a "i

L ycearsi we kow him well and

n One slander affecting a member
is of the state board of liquor control
w has been nailed. In his speech at
is Edgefield Senator Tillman casually
a remarked that somebody told him that st
y John Bell Towill, who helps manage
a the dispensary, had accepted a fine
a Kentucky horse from a distiller. Sen- ac
e ator Tillman did not make the charge;
e he simply repeated what he had ac
it heard. Mr. Towill. however, declares $2
e that 'he bought the animal from a Jc
it trader in his town, paying him $275.
)t That sets one rumor at rest. Now J(
:t for the next.-Ex.
n Newspaper men very seldom have H
n $275 to pay for a horse. Mr. Towill
will have to explain a little further.- A
t- Darlington News.
y But Mr. Towill is not a newspaper F
ie man. And besides he is amply able
to buy a horse and pay for it and j<
ie was before he became a member of
Ld the state board. E
