THE DISPENSARY VOTED OUT.
About Fifty Per Cent cf the Voters
of the County Vote-Dispensary
Defeated Nearly Three to One.
The election on Tuesday passed off
quietly. About fifty per cent of the
vote of the county was cast. The
dispensary was voted out by a vote
of nearly ithree ft one of the vote cast.
The managers required the pro
duction of the registration certificate
and the tax receipt in order to vote.
If one did not have his registration
certificate and secured a certificate
from the clerk of court that he was
registered then he was permitted to
vote. A good many did not have reg
istration certificates and therefore
were unable to vote.
The developments before the in
vestigating committee had the effect
of changing a good many votes
against the dispensary though it was
generally known and conceded from
the date that the mass meeting was
held here preliminary to ordering -the
election that the dispensary would be
voted out. It was only a question of
what the majority would be.
Only at one precinct. Helena. did
the dispensary fail to receive a vote.
And at one, Central. the "no dispen
sary" failed to receive a vote.
At eight precincts the dispensary re
cived a majority. In Newberry the
v te against t-he dispensary was much
grater than even the prohibitionists
e-xpectecl. The following is the vote

Senator Cole. L. Blease who has
'been active in his advocacy of the dis
pensary system when seen on WVed
esday by T:he Herald and -News
gave out the following statement:
I have done my duty to my peoplc
s I have seen it. The majority of
the voters seem to be against the
dispensary. So far as I am concern
el. I am a democrat and in favor of
the minority submitting to the wvill oi
the majority, and upon this princi

be taken in this county but that the
dispensaries will be promptly closed
and that the minority will join hands
with the majority and assist in giving

would have gone for the dispensary
if it had been a vote such as we have
in the primary elections as you see
he owns proper did the heavy voting
and this is to a fair expression of the
wll of the poeple. I am glad also
that the negro vote went solidly for
.no dispensary," as we did not wish
to win by that.
'The people who voted "'no dispen
sarv" have made a mistake as they
wll see before the years 1906-7 pass
around. I am just as much a dis
pensary advocate as ever and propose
t stand solidly to the system on the
stump and in the senate. I believe
it to be the best s.olution of t'he whis
~The vote yesterday in favor of "no
dispensary" does not at all change my
plans or views nor will it affect my
course. I was elected last year over
a "no dispensary" candidate by over
500 votes and advocated the "dispem
pns-r' at eery campaign meeting
and will still be found advocating
as if no vote was taken yesterda
at all. The v.te was no fair test a

did vote were negroes. Still I am ii

believe in the good old democrati
doctrine which is let the majorit,
rule and I say "so be it." '

will be any contest in this count:

TRIBUTE TO T. J. McCRARY.
By One Who Knew Him. Appreciated
and Loved Him.
T. J. NlcCrary is dead' Such were
the words that were spoken on yes
terday. with mingled sorrow and sur
prise.. soon after the gentle spirit of
this golden-hearted gentleman took
its flight. The announcement was a
great shock to every one for it was
known that Mr. McCrary had not
been ill and all of us had seen him
moving among us. only the day be
fore, in apparent health and vigor.
That the community mourns needs
scarcely to be stated, for he was in
life everbody's friend, his generous
benefac-ions, his kindly deeds. his
words of good cheer, his broad sym
pathies. all of these shone alike in his
splendid nature. gripping everyone
with convictions as to his sincerity
and love. This was, if I may speak
the truth, without dissimulation, a
virtue very rare and by no means
Some of us who have been long
asociated with Mr. McCrary have
. watched his career and have been
gratified at his successes in all that
he undertook to do. We knew of his
sterling worth many years ago and
we have rejoiced in his prosperity,
for he was a man who received such
blessings with composure and 'he
pursued the even tenor of his way,
doing his gracious acts and living his
useful life without pride or arrogance.
- WNe shall miss him sorely! In social
and in religious life and in business
life, it will be difficult to find his suc
cessor. Mr. 'McCrarv was a Christian
gentleman. modest. always approach
able and ready co hear any just ap
peal. full of convictions, yet never
brusque or harsh, faithful in every
trust , a liberal giver to every benevo
lent cause. I pay this just tribute
to the many excellencies of the de
ceased, our friend.
