The intention of the state dispen
sary law from its very origin. was to
decrease drink. But how different
with the county Ilacliines! 'Tihey
want people to drink it whether they
want to or not.-Lexington Dispatch.
Well, now do you mean to say that t
the state dispensary decreased the
use of whiskey, or that was its pur
Was it not a fact that each admin- c
istration seemed to take more pride
in the business that was done, the
sales that were made and tl, pro
fits that resulted rather than show
ing the small amount of
-whiskey consumed. The fact of the
matter is that the state dispensary
as well as the county dispensary
seems to have been in the business
for the money that could be made.
We heard not long ago a promi
nent citizen. of Columbia, who has
always been a strong advocate of the
state dispensary, say that he now be
lieves in the county dispensary, and
his main reason for a change of be
lief was, that in Richland county the '
county dispensary was making about d
$10,000 per month clear. As a mat
ter of fact, if we are to have whis
key sold by the state or by the coun
ty, we think that it Is just as well '
to make some money, oat of it. As a
moral question, it is no greater sin to
make $10,000 than it is to make U
$1.00, and we believe that if the dis- I
pensary is to be run at all that it
should handle first class whiskey and
charge a good price for it so as to
have a good profit.
Those who have to have whiskev
for medicinal or mechanical purposes
call afford to pay a good piee for
what they -need if they get a good
article, and those people, who desire
to use it as a be erage, should be
made to pay for it. for it is thien a
luxury and not a necessity.

We do not know what the condi
t ions aric at .Jamest own at t.hiis t ime,
but wvhen thle cx posit ion opened thle
appearance iniciatedl t hat it would
he at least sixty days before anything
at all would b)e in shape or in c'on
dition for v'isitors. The streets were
iiot comletedl and very few of the
build ingR weire comipleted'i, and ii onieii of
the exhibits wvere in shape. The Sout,h
Carolina exhibit was nearer comple
tion than any that we saw.
We are of the opiniioni that when
the exhihits are in shape and the
grounds and buildings ar'e comlet ed
that it wvill be probably the best ex..
posit ion thIiat has been held, but at
that time everything~ was in a very
incom.plete condition. For that. rea
son we have advised that t,he Press
Association not make its visit until
some time in July.
Cole L Blease, of Newberry, in an
interview with a representative of
the Augusta Chronicle, declared that
the present dispensary law is a far
ee, anid that there will be a change
made at the meeting of the next leg
islat-ure. Mr. Blease asserted, how
ever, that the State dispensary, with
the proper1 safegairds against graft,
is the best solution in the w~old for
the handling of the liquor traffic,
but if we can 't get the state dispen
ary he is in favor of prohibition. This
j a pretty good sign that it will not
e long before South Carolina will
ave prohibition; for, as a matter of
act, the state dispensary is dead
orCver dead in South Carolina, and
le believe, like Senator Blease, that
lie county dispensaries are a nuis
nee and a farce.
When a County tries to increase
lie sales of liquor by pdacing it in
very town in the county, whether
lie majority of citizens want it or
ot, for the sole purpose of making
ioney and making money alone, then
t is time for every God-fearing, lib
rty-loving citizen in South Carolina
o rise up with just indignation and
id the state of a curse that is fast
ragging us down to the lowest
epths of perdition. Away with the
ounty dispensaries and their revenue!
live us prohibition!-Lexington Dis
We would not be surprised if the
entiment in favor of a straight pro
ibition law was not much stronger
t the next session of the legislature
han it was last winter. In fact if
he prohibitionists who were in the
ngislature had joined forces with the
isp)ensary people who were willing
o vote for prohibition rather than
lie Carey-Cothran Act, a prohibi
ion law couild have been enacted last
vinter, and we would not he at. all
urprised that at the next session of
lie legislature a prohibition bill re
eives much stronger support than it
tid last winter.
The fact is, we are more and more
ielined to the opinion that where the
entiment of the people Is in. favor
f the sale of whiskey that ! would
e better to provide a license system
.der the provisions of the constitu
ion rather than to have county dis
iensary. The liquor question is a
mtzzle and it. is very dif11eult to d6
ermine what is best to be done in
rder to have the least evils resulting
roi its sale. The theory of the dis
iensary law is probably all right,
ml. the temptation to make money
mt of it is too rreat and the dan
rer is that it will lead to a Imone'y
naking affair wherever established.

AS TO PREBSS TRIP.
President Aull Asks For sugstions
From Members of the As
The following letter has been sent
ut by President Aull in regard to
Ihe proposed trip of the Press Asso
,iation to Norfolk.
In the event that there are no more
than a sutifficient number to fill one
ear, arrangements will be"made to
have that ear attached to the re
lar train with the stop-overs as in .
-ated. Unless there is a decided pre
Cerence amopg the editors to go to
Jamestown on South Carolina day it
is probable that President Aull will
select the 22nd of July as the date
to make the trip. He would be glad
to hear from the editors, who con
template a' visit to Jamestown, just
as early as possible in reply to the
suggestions contained in- the ,state
ment which he has sent out so that
the arrangements may be ierfected.
I have been aut.horiz'ed by the exe
outive commitee to proceed to make
srrangements for the trip of the
South Carolina Press association to
the Jamestovn exposition.
I have been to Jamestown to so
-tre information and look over the
leld. I am very much puzzled as to
ie best plans for this trip. I am
;ure that it should not be taken un
il some time in July or August; that
f we go as early as South Carolina
lay, which is June 28, we will find
he exposition in a very incomplete
ondi.tion. I would like to have sug
estions from the members of the as
tociation, and also an idea of bow
uany will go on this trip, so that I
night conclude as to the best plan
or the trip.
Under the head "How to get to
Famestown" the secretary of the Na
:ional Editorial association says.
'The best 'way to get there, is to get
here the best way you can." Of
1ourse each member of the South
.'arolina association can go jupt as
!heap by himself as lie can with the
issociation. There are many 'advan
ages, however, in taking such a trip
oget-her. I have had conferences with
representatives of the Southern
Railway and also with the Seaboard.
One plan I had thought of, if we
'01ld get as many as 100 people in
)ur party, is to secure three Pullman
Lars ;and one combinat.ion baggage
aind day coach and get the railroad
to run our cars as a special --train.
Under this arrangement we could ar
range to spend a few hours in Ohpx.
lotte, several hours in Raleigh and 'a
day in Richmond. Then we could
have our cars parked at Norfolk and
retain them until we returned. On
the retuirn trip, of course we would
vone directly home. If we went by
the Sout.hern, we would maintain
about the following schedule on the
Leave C'oliumbia at (6 a. mn. anid ar
rive at Charlotte about 9.30; leave
Charclot te at 12.30) and arrive at lHal
eigh at (6 hp. im.; leave Raleigh at 10
p. im. and arr'ive ini Richmnondl next
morning at 7 a. mi.; spend the dlay
in Richmond and arriive in Nor'folk
By securing a sixteen section~ car
We could put 32 people in each Pull
m.an without crowding aind they
wiould he about as comfortable to
sleep in at Norfolk wiithi proper wiat
cir and sanitariy arriangements as th
cr'owdled hotels, anid we would not
hiav'e the annoy.ance of ('arrying our1
b)aggagre around or thle cost of t rans
fer'ring it. I do not think it would
lie wise to undertake to furnish mieals
The cost of such arrangement for
transpor'tation and( Pullmn cars a'nd
the pariking.of the ears for five dlays
ini Norfolk, going oil a fifteen dlays
ticket anid taking a tenl (lays tr'ip,
would1 be about $28.00 for each per
son if' we had as moany, as 100 per
sonls ill the three cat's. If we (do not
take the eal's for the trip, thte cost
would1( be about $20.00 each -foi
transpot'tat ion and Pullman rate, gol
ing and i'eturn'ming. 'rhen roome
could be secured for' thte five (lays in
Nor'folk at $1.25 per day and up,
with more than one person in a room.
I jav e lnmer'ous pr'oposit ions
firom hotels aind r'ooming hlouses tc
care for theC associat.ion while it ii
in Norfolk. Mr'. Snyder, of tihe ex
position, wvrites me that the P~ine
(rove Inn wvill be finished by the
1st of June and it wvill be located at
the exposition very neal' the entrance
and1 fronting Hampton Roads and
tliat we can secure rooms for the
party in this hotel for $1.25 per day,
European plan, and if we desire, ?
portion of the time at the same rate
may be spent at Virginia Beach
with boats running directly from the
grounds to Vil'ginia Beachl every
iforty minutes ivithi probably a 2
cents fare fot' the round trip).
I wouild be pleased to have you
write met yourt pr1eference of thtese
trips at once, as I would like to ar
range such a trip thtat will be agree
abl to the majority of those who in
tend to take it.
Of course if we do not take the
ears gor the ientire trip, we will go
directly to Norfolk without the
stops indicated above. The cost of
the two trips, you will observe, is
practically the same. If we should
not have as many as 100, who are
members of the -association or con
nected dirtetly with the Press, nem
hers of the association might invite
some of their friends to go with
them so as to be able to make up
.e requisite number in order to se
cure a special train.
E. H. AULL,
