B. The D144)*ry In South Carolina.
r, There can be no doubt but that the
good people of. South Carolina are
stirred to their utmost emotions upon
the question of the state dispensary.
In ,Georgia this institution has
worked in a satisfactory and1 success
I fl way. In Rome, in Athens, and in
other places its 'results havV beeif in
the main entirely satisfactory tb tile
1o people, helpful to ptublic revenue, re
ducing disorders, diminishing dirunk
enness and vindicating itself in a
A But ill South Carolina the dispen
sary seems to have fallen into the
hands of the political ring, who havo
made it an enginery of corruption,
fraud, triekery and every other inho
ly thing that distresses politics and
disturbs public integrity in the state.
Even so steady and conservative a
paper ns the Charleston News and
Courier speaks of the dispensary as
tile ''essential iniquity of tile times,''
and declares that the issue of de
n stroying it subordinates and over
whelms every other issue that con
eerns the people of South Carolina.
It declares that. beside this institiltioll
entrenched in spoils and corruption,
tile state itself had come to look small,
a - 'ic'yune and puny; that 'a perni
iolus political machine'' has grown,
that a ''bereaved lobby'' has develop
ecd, and that the ''willing ring ''in ev
ery c ounty exhibits tile energy, as well
as the eagerness of swine, who
ie scufilngly clamber over all obstacles
to the swill trough. It declares that
the alignment in this question and
campaign is anl array of honesty
against larceny, of virtuous citizens
against vicious government, of com
mon decency against spreading cor
ruption. The gross corruption, says
a the News and Cottrier, festers every
where, it is too palable and too im
pudent; and to prate of cleansing and
rehabilitating this thing, born as a
nake-shift and subterfuge, nourished
for partisan advantage, and tirough
all its years reeking with ever-in
creasing offence, is to trifle with facts,
to deny the obvious, and to fight 01)
the side of a public crime.
The shibboleth of the hiour in South
Carolina is ''the dispensary must be
It is difficult to imagine how two in
stititions could work so differently
k, in two comralde states, hying side by
l side, with only a narrow stream di
viding them. The dispensary in
it South Carolina is 'described by vir
tuous and conservative papers as tHIe
sum total of all iniquities. In Geor
gia, it is looked upon by able and con
secrated statesmen as the only possi
- ble solution, within conservative lines,
ty of tile liq4or question in the state.
Here, then, we have a wide and
sweeping difference. The only possi
ble explanation to be found is in the
fact that from carelessness, and apit
' thy, and indifference in South Caro
linia, tile dispenisary has been alloweud
hO t.o develop into a vast political ma
' chine. That seems to be the burden
it of tile..complaint and tile gist of the
irtiquity ini it.
rIf then in Georgia wve shlall be able
nto learn wisdom from the mistakes or
nSouth Carolina, and to compass and
dsurrouInd our dispensary institutions
with suhl conditions and wvithi such
nsafeguards as will shut out the ele
ment o'f selfishl polities, and prevent
ed the creation of a political ring around
t its workings, and at tile same time
preserve tile good features which have
giv'en muchl of pleasure and of satis
kfaction to thoughtful statesmen upon
inthis line, the state of Georgia wvill be
nable to save to tile moral element of
the times a great experiment and a
great agent of uIsefuhlness for tile tem
rs perance cause ini the future..
If the dispensary withlout polities
is a good thing as tile experience of
Georgia seems to have demonstrated,
thlen if Georgia can further demnl
strate that it is possible to have the
de<ispensary withiotut polities, Georgia
will hlave done a service to Carolina
tanId to the great cause of temperance
Sthroughout tile country and the wvorld.
e- Vherefore, tile injunction would
seem to be clear, and tile duty obvions
to those who are advocates of thlis in
stitultion in this state, thit with all
their hearts and wvith all their hands,
and withI all their brains, they shoulId
set thlemselves to tile mighlty task of
excluding politics and tile possibility
of political rings from an institution
whlich is set to the furtherance and
perfection of a mighty moral reform,
