TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1905.
The shortage in the Union mills of
which Mi. T. C. Duncan was pres.
dent it is :tared will amount to abo-.
6o,ooo bales of cotton. "Yr. Duncan
has resigned as treasurer and was
succecded by Mr. E. W. Robertson,
of Columbia. It is said he dealt in
spot cotton as well as futures.
Ve do not know anything about
running cotton mills but these short
ages from speculation we fear will
cause people to lose confidence and
impair the upbuilding of mills. If
Mr. Duncan had been on the right
side of the market and nad made 6o,
ooo bales of cotton instead of losing
them there would have been nothing
but praise for his good business judg
ment and management. but as he was
unfortunate and lost he is turned out.
It seems to us that the world has a
wrong view of this question. If it
is wrong to speculate in cotfon when
you lose how is it right if you win.
We do not believe any man should
use other people's.money to speculate
in cotton or anything else unless he
secures their consent, but if he wants
to risk his own that way it is his busi
ness. However, it nay be the proper
Dr. Lavell is graceful in delivery,
A mass meeting is called for next
Monday to organize for the enforce
ment of the prohibition law which we
have now. That is alright. Every
law should be enforced and we are
anxious to see prohibition strictly en
forced, but there is danger of mak
ing too much to do over this law
now and of being unable to keep up
t.he gait. Let us not let our enthus
iasm take us too far. The Herald
and News stands for the enforcement
of prohibition and for the enforcement
of every other law. All laws should
be enforced. Justice should be 'tem
pered with mercy.
All good citizens want to see -he
laws enforced. And unless public sen
timent is. behind any law it is going
to be difficult to have it enforced.
Governor Heyward has decided af
ter conference with Liqour Commis
sioner Tatum and the attorney gener
al, that dispensers cannot ship liquor
.in-to counties. which h-ave voted it
out. That his 'been the law and it is
proper for t'he governor to enforce it.
SLet those who want liquor for per
sonal use send off and get it. If a
dispenser were to fill the orders -that
came 'by mail he could not tell wheth.
er he was selling to a minor or a
drunkard an<d he could not have the
purchaser sign the application blank.
The farmers throughout the state
seem to be -passing resolutions en
dorsing the action of the Asheville
cornvention fixing the minimum price
of cotton at 11 cents. Still there is
consderable coLton going on the mar
kets. For the past few days there has
not been a grea: deal on the New
berry market and the price has gone
as high as 10 1-2. The crop is short
and if the farmers stand together
they can get what they want bu-t un
less they do they will lose out.

Most Exciting Scene Since Stormy

Bacesburg. September 23.-A' the
p,litical barbecue here toda.. Which
had been widev advertiZed and to
which Senator Tiliman and J L. Mc
Laurin had both been invited there
was a scene of the most exciting na
tvre that has taken place in South
Carolina's political historv since the
st,,rmy days of 1892-03. Hon. J. L.
'\eLaurin did not have tine to get
he:-e after receiving his invi:atit. it
w:s sta:ed. but Senator Tillman was
here and whev. he and Col. John Bell
Towill, member oi the state board of
control cla j:ed in debate there was
s;omethin. .> and the opera house
crOwded to its untmost capacity was
more than a beehive of excitment.
In his speech, in a roast of the man
agement of the dispensary and in a
direct critici.n of *the state board,
Senator TIlman said, "According to
thz published advertisements of the
board, no bids for less than $i.5o for
one X corn whiskey will be received."
John Bell Towill arose from his
seat and in a clear voice said, "Sena
tcr Tillman, that is false and you
know that it is not true." A scene
of the wildest confusion ensued. Loud
cheers burst out from the audience
and "Hurrah for Tillman" was heard
mixed in with the cheers for Towill. r
The crowd made a move for the stage, r
surging and cheering. Senator Till- r
man stood as fixed as a marble statue
and when the crowd appeared to be
getting unruly, asked several times,
"Where is the mayor?" After some
time quiet was restored and th,en the
Rev. C. M. Padgett, a well known
minister of Saluda county arose and
questioned Senator Tillman with re
gard to .his attack on the preachers
of the state. At this pandemonium
again broke loose.
Senator Tillman berated the news
papers naming the most objection
al- ones, he cited the News and
C;-urier and others but was more par
t;-ilarlv bitter when naming the
S..ate than any others. He said.
"That hell hound in Columbia wh:o
e-* -s the State has told enough lies
o:1 me +furnish crossties to build
a railro-o go hell."
Hie paid his respects to McLaurin
ar-l said that he considered it an in
s:t to be invited here and to have
an invitation extended to McLarin at
the same time.
In the invitation to Senator Tillman
t:he signature of Col. John Bell Tow
ill was heavily underscored.
It is reported that after the meet
.Senator Tillman .and Col. Towill
g.t together and that Senator Till
n1 explained that he did not mean
tc accuse Mr. Towill of dishonesry.

of the two men.
