Dr. Howard Lee Jones Says Prohibi
tion in Charleston Would be a
Charleston, July 26.-Rev. Dr.
Howard Lee Jones, the able and elo
quent pasto-r of the Citadel Square
Baptist church, preached a sermon
last night on "Prohibition a Force or
a Farce,'' in whieh the scholarly rin
ister advised against the support of
prohibition in Charleston at this time.
The sermon was probably the
strongest support which could have
been given to the anti-prohibition
movement in Charleston. coming as it
did from Dr.. Jones. Dr. Jones is
himself a prohibitnist and only re
cently preached a sermon in advo
cacy of prohibition in Berkeley coun
ty and will make similar addresses
else.where during the present cam
paign, showing that in taking the po
sition that he 3oes in Charleston he
is acting along the line which he con
sidrs best for the cause and best for
In his sermon Dr. Jones made the
distinction between the idealism of
prohibition in the elimination of
strong drink from the social life and
the practical phase of the situation,
taking care to answer the criticism
of those who argue that prohibition
does n,ot accomplish all that it aims
to do. Prohibition is effective, Dr.

Jones declared, some times and in
somie places, and lie ably answered the
airgument of those who are opposed to
t1he principle of the movement, now
sweeping over the country.
In the enforcement of prohibition
as of any law, an intelligent and
moral force is necessarv, Dr. Jones
argued, and in Charleston lie said that
he was forced to admit that the time
was not ripe for a satisfactory en
foecement of prohibition. The active
and unanimous efforts of "blind tig
ers" in working for prohibition, Dr.
Jones said, evidenced a declaration
on their part to make prohibition a
farce and bring about a worse condi
tion than now existed in Charleston
in tihe liquor traffic in Cha.rleston. The
lesser of the two evils was preferable.
Dr. Jones declared, especially when
the best sentiment of Charleston is
now loking toward a stricter and bet
ter enforcement of the present law
on the statute books.
Veneered 'Wood Industry Shows
Washington. July 29.-During the
year 1908, there were cut into veneer
382,542,000 feet b. m. of logs. valued
at $7,891,000 as against 348.523,000
feet, valued at $6,436.000, in 1907, ac
cording to statistics just published by
the Bureau of the Census in coopera
tion with the United States Forest
Service. Althougr industrial condi
tions generally were unfavorable dur
ing the year 1908, the amount of wood
cut into veneer increased, substantial
gains being made in the quantity of
both imported and domestic wood con
sumed. This was due in a measure to
the closer canvass in 1908, when re
turns were received from 402 active
establishments located in thirty-four
states, as agaist 370 in thirty-one
states, for the preceding year.
Red gum, as in the preceding year,
ranked first among the woods used for
veneer, 119,945 feet being consumed,
with a valuation of $1,272,096, form
ing a percentage of 31.4 of the total
consumption. The demand for, red
gum was even greater than in 1907,
when its percentage of the whole con
sumption was 29.5. Among other
woods, with the exception of yellow
pine, which shows an important in
crease, no great inerease is noted.
1 The principal woods imported for
the industry were mahogany and
Spanish cedar. Of the former 11,487
feet were used, with a valuation of
$1,478,364, as against 6,722 feet with
a valuation of $839,695 in 1907.
