The political campaign in this state
will be opened on the 19th of June.
The itinerary has not been made out,
but that date has bcn selected by the
state democratic executive committee.

Foui years ago when Senator Lati
mer was elected there were two cam
paign parties, one being made up of
the candidates f6r the sen-ate and the
candidates for congress in their re
spective districts, and the other par- t
ty made up of candidates ror state t
offices and 'candidates for solieitor. 11
Six years ago when Senator Tillmin t
was a candidate for re-election with
out opposition he mixed up in the Io
cal fight over the dispensary and the
action of the state convention MIeans
that he will have the same opportun
ity this year if the other candidates
will tolerate it, and if Senator Till
man should have opposition for the
senate the people who are contesting
for that place will attract all of the i4
attention and the candidates for state
offices will be in the background, even
the candidates for governor.
After some discussion it was decid
ed to order the campaign meetings to t
begin on Tuesday, June 19th. The v
itinerary is to be arranged by a sub- r
committee to consist of Gen. Jones 1
and Messrs. Richa'rds, Ketchin and
Senator Butler and will be made pub- I

THE LIQUOR QUESTION.

tion if it Were Possible to
Have It-Dispensary in
.Mr. Editor: God knows if smy,vote1
uld wipe whiskey from thle face of
is earth -I- would freely cast it for,
at purpose, but it will not do so;
or will a majority of the votes ofi
e state cast for this purpose, give
sprohibition, as long as the law re
ains as it .ngw is, giving everybody
he righlt to oi-der 'whiskey from othaer,
tates and hlave it shlipped to them,
ver the railroads.
*If ain aEt cannet be passed prohiibi
ing the shipping of whiskey into our
tite, then I think the Jegislatire.
hould pass ari' act regutating thle sale
f whiskey in the strictest manner,
md require every cent obtained frotn
he sale of whiskey to be expended on
e public highways, .and for no oth
rpurpose. Notwithstanding thle salei
f whsey'i's obnoxions in everyi
hape and form, yet when wi have-tlie'

hilst I am opposed to state and
ounty dispensaries at the same time
believe the dispensarjv system of
~eling whiskey is tihe best that edn be
'opted, but it shuould be run by re
ponsible partie's, upon. their own
ook, being required to pay. high li
