that the editor and printers and oth

WILL WE HAVE PROHIBITION?
We publish in another column to
dday, an analysis, so to speak, of thre
present legislature on prohibition,
written by Mr. James Hoyt for the
Tews and Courier.
XMr. Hoyt gives 'tre decisive votes
of the lgislature last winter when
'this question was up for discussion.
He also shows what counties have
-voted out the dispensary under the
'local option law since the adjourn
ment of the legislature and what
'counties apparently seem to be satis
'ied with the county dispensary plan.
Ordinarily and under ordinary con
'ditions his analysis and his conclu
sions might be correct.
It should be remembered that the
vote in the last session of the l'egisla
ture was not a prohibition or an an
ti-prohibition expression, for as
stated in the analysis by Mr. Hoyt,
'a number of prohibitionists voted
'against a prohibition ~bill and practi
'cally all of the dispensary advocates
voted for a prohibition bill. In ad
dition to this it should be remember
~ed that a great many who vot'ed for
-the Carey-Cothran bill did so as a
means of abolishing the state dis
pensary rather t-han as an expression
of their views on the qurestion of pro
hibition or anti-prohibition.
Just how they will vote in the ap
proaching session bf course no one
'can tell. We have heard several
members who come from counties
nyhere a local or county dispensary
seems to be giving satisfaction 'say
that they expect to vote for a
straight state prohibition measure.
G'here are others from counties in
'which there is now prohibition and
twko voted for the Carey-Cothran
bill who will vote for state prohibi
>Anot;her view of this question is
that the impression prevails,
-and we are inclined to think that it.
'is correct, that a majority of the
'people of South Carolina if OTven an
'opportunitty would vote for a state
'prohibition law. Thgre are always
-'hose who like to be in the majority
-and if one takes a position that the
state should be the unit on the ques
tion of whiskey and is satisfied that
a majority of the people of the state
favor prohibition then it is proper
that as a representative 'endeavoring
to carry out the wishes of the people
-in the state in the enactment of laws
for their government h-e should vote
Of course it is difficult to forecast,
just what will be the result, but we
'are inclined to the opinion that if
'the prohibitionlists and those who
care willing to vot'e with them in the
'approaching session can agree upon
some measure and unite in 'support
>of it that there will be a state prohi
'bition law enacted at the approach
'ing session of the -general assembly.
It is now only a few days until
Christmas and very soon another
