Dr. Cromer on- Situation In Newberry.
The following letter from Mayor
Cromer on the -condition in Newberry
since the dispensary was voted out
-was published in the Anderson Daily
Mail last week:
Newberr1, Nov. 23.
Mr. B. F. Martin. Chairman, An
derson, S. C., Dear Sir:-I -have your
card of November 20th, asking me to
tell you of the con'di'ion of affairs in
this county since the abolition of the
dispensary. I am able to speak defi
nitely of conditions in town of New- ]
berry; but my knowledge of condi
tions in the county I get at second
hand. In the town, since the dispen
s'ary was voted out, there has been
.much less drun-kenness and far less
disorder. From every moral point of t
view the improvement lhas -been re
A large qiantity of liquor is ship
peld into the county -and, I am told
that in certain sections the it1liciE fraf
fic is large; but to a considerable ex
tent these are the sections in which
the blin:d tigers plied their trade be
fore the dispensary 'was v6ced out. In
those sections of the country in which
the sentiment is at all f-avorable to
prohiition, and that means almost
all parts of the 'cototy, conditions are
muh'better than they 'were. Persons
who live along the roads leading out
fromn the to'wn of Newberry and the
town of Prosperity tell me that 'peo
ple going .ot of town, and especially t
on Saturday afternoon and night,
are -mu'ch more orderly :than they ~
were 'when we 'had the dispensary;
drunk now and that their teams are
not driven hard and abused as they
frequently 'were 'before. Taking the
situation as -a whole, I have no hesi
tation in -say'ing that voting out the
dispensary has been a great .gain for
morals, good order, and sobriety in
the county of Newberry.
Yours very truly.
Geo. B. Cromer.
