THINK PEOHIBIION WILL COM]
Mr. Bellinger Says Tempellanci
Movement is Growing-Former
Attorney General Discusses
News and Courier.
Columbia. August 23.1-The Hon. C
Duncan Bellinger. formerly Attorn
General of South Carolina, who i
noW practicinw law in Columbia. ha
recently made several business trip
to Washington and Baltimore, an,
in conversation on his return he stat
ed that there is a great deal of signif
icance being everywhere attached f
the growth of the prohibition senti
ment i tii eountr,v. especi,1ly in llh
South. Mr. Belliiger ha.s never a(I
vocated state prohibition, but he i
a Demoerat and believes in the rul
of the majority. and he is convince
that the people of South (larolin
will soon demand the passage of
prohibition law. just as has been don
in Georgia and will be done in Nort
"I believe." said Mr. Bellinge:
'that the wisest thing for the proh'
bitionists to do would be to enact
law giving the whole state prohib'
tion and permitting those countie
which desire to have whiskey sol
therein to vote it in inAead of r(
quiring, as now, the counties whic
want prohibition to vote whiskey ou
Under the present arrangement th
whole burden is on those who oppo;
the sale of whiskey and this shoul
not be. The present law makes
necessary for those opposing the sal
of whiskey to get up the petitions fc
the election and to wage the can
paign for prohibition; then after th
eleetion if there is a contest, the pr<
hibitionists are compelled to put u
funds to fight it. Those who are ir
terested- either fianancially or othei
wise, in the sale of whiskey will na
urally be prepared to spend money t
retain this privilege, but it is hard t
compel the sincere prohibitionists t
go down into their pockets and pt
up the money for such a fight.
"My firm and myself personall
have represented the dispensary fa<
tion in many of the contests whic
have been brought to test the legalit
of the elections under the Brice la
and the Carey-Cothran law, and tb
suggestion I am making will not oni
not bring me any.money. but if pt
into effect, would cost me heavily, bt
I am convinced that it is t>M bes
plan to insure the success of proh
b -itiori in this state. While I wa s a
ivays a dispensary man as long as
was in politics, my sympathiE
throughout life have been with thos
forces making for temperance, la'
and order, and I admire the sineer
" There is no use denying the fort
of the sentiment whieh is growing i
favor of prohibition in this and othe
Southern states, and if the prohib
tionists are wise they will substitul
for the present unsatisfactory law
-state prohibition law, which will co'
er the commonwealth like a blanke
putting on those who want whiske
sold in any county 'the onus of secu
ing an election and of instituting t~
dispensary. The prohibtionists has
the power to do this if they choos
and it is to their advantage to do s'
Personally, I should be glad to s
such a bill introduced at the next se
sion of the general assembly-b)y sonv
sincere prohibitionist, and it seen
to me that it would meet with th
approval of Gov. Ansel. whose ine
nation towards prohibition is we
In speaking of the contests, whie
his firm has conducted to test the va:
ious elections on the 'dispensary i
the last few years. Mr. Bellinger sai
he knew that hd had been criticise<
but that he considered he had dot
his .,tate a service if he has assiste
in instructinz the people how ele
-tions must be conducted to be lawfu
ly conducted. "I have always stoo
for the enforcement and observant
of the law,"''said Mr. Bellinger, "n
matter what the law is, and shall a
ways do so."
Mr. Bellinger has an intimate a<
quaintance with the whiskey law
which have been in force in this stat
*during the last fifteen years. B]
was solicitor when the dispensary la'
was first enacted and his record fc
the vigorous prosecution of lav
breakers of all kinds stands unequa

olina. Then he was elected attorne
general when the dispensary law ri
quired daily interpretation for th
guidance of the state officials and h:
opinions are accepted as final on t
questions which he was called on I
consider. Since his retirement froi
that offee he has been engaged in a
most every contest of the Brice la
and Carey-Cothran law elections the
have been made. Although out of o:

the people and knows their sent
BISHOP COADJUTOR GUERRY
TO LOCATE IN CHARLESTON
Report That He will Make His Head
quarters in City by the Sea if
Bishop Capers Recovers.
The State .
lCharleston. Au.. 22.-Bishop Coad
jutor A. W. Guerry will probably
s make his residence in Charlestoa
s some time after his consecration next
sI month, but no direct statement of
I his probable residence in this city has
- yet been made.
When Dr. Guerry was first nomi
nated for the position of bishop coad
-ijutor. it was then said that he would
take unI hIs residence in Charleston.
ivig special attention to this see
tion of South Carolina while Bishop
e Capers would look after the interests
of the Episcopal chureb in the upper
section of the state. The plan then
provided also for the,conseeration of
e the new bishop in Charleston, proba
bly at the Church of the Holy Com
munion, with which he was once con
nected. The illiess of'Bishop Cap
ers, with the accumulation of much
a correspondence and affairs requir
ing the attention of the bishop fol
s lowed and it became apparent that,
i the necessities of the situation would
- require Bishop Guerry to remain for
1 some time after his consecration in
- Columbia. The standing committee
e su)se(uently took up the work of tho
e j ill bishop and has disposed of and
handled many matters, still there is
much work before the new bishop
e and it is very probable that he will
r be kept busy at Columbia for some
- time after his consecration in attend
e ing to the many matters constantly
accumulating. When these matters
P have been disposed of, Bishop Guer
- ry will be free to give particular at
tention to ministrations, especially
in this section of the state, and then
0 he will make Charleston his head
0 quarters. This move may be co.idi
0 tioned on the recovery of Bishop Ca
pers and the ability of the ill official
to again actively assume the func
Y tions of his office.
- The matter of providing an Epis
h copal residence and its support will
Y be looked after especially by the
~Charleston people. Pending his con
eseeration and the final decision of
'the place of residence, nothing defin
t 1ite along this line will be done.
- Too Much.
"You say that you love me,'' she
*said; "that you would do anything
efor me. I am going to put you to the
e "Darling, I am ready to do any
thing, to dare anything for you. If it
e will make you happy to see me enter
n a den of wild beasts I will do it. If
r you would have me jump from a high
- building to prove that I love you I
e am ready to take the risk. Bid me
a navigate the rapids of Niagara in *a
-barrel and I will make thes effort, so
, that you may know how deep in my
y affection for you.''
"I shall not ask you to do any of
e the foolish things you mention; but
e won't you, if you really love me, go
'out in the back yard and play eroquet
-. with Aunt Mehitabel? She says she
e g ets so lonesome knocking the balls
e With a groan of despair he grab
b5 bed his hat and ran. She had aske'd
e too much. He co'uld not, even for her
love, assume the risk of being refer
. red to as a mollycoddle.
h The Collinsville correspondence of
the Kansas City Journ~al says "Jer
a ey Cat Farm,'' is the~very latest in
d dstry to be established in that part
~'of the country. The ''farm'' is about
e eight miles west of there, directly on
the Cherokee and Osage nation line.
There are nearly 600 cats of all kinds
addscriptions. The owner, John
Polston. formerly of Ozark, Ark.,
e says' "I hope to be able to produce
a jet black cat that will sell for la
- dies' neekwear. I can raise about 2,
000 cats every year at a cost of less
-than 30 cents each, and any old hide
5' will bring from 50 to SO cents.''
