REV. W. I. HERBERT.
Criticises Charleston Council For Not
Attacking Tigers. -Answers
Dr. Jones' Sermon.
-Charleston, Aug. 8.-In a sermon
tonight at united service: of the
Methodist churches- of Charleston,
Presiding Elder Walter I Herbert
preached a special sermon, answer
ing the recent uiscourse of Rev. Dr.
Howard L. Jones, who declared that
prohibition would be a farce in this
ctv. Dr. Herbert took as his subject,
"Prohbition-a Force and not a
Farce." In the course of his reply
to the pastor of the Citadal Square
Baptist church, the presiding elder
declared that the so-called "seream
ing farce" is to be found not in the
probable non-enforcement of a pro
hibition law, but the recent non-en
forcement of the dispensary act.
He said that Chief of Police Boyle
had told him on two occasions, and
he had also 'heard from other sources,
that th hands of the police depart
ment : e led by the city government
in tho enforcement of the dispensary
law. He went further and.said that
Sif anything further were needed to
show the 'fare"' it is in the neglect
of city council to see t4iat the law is
enforced. The conditions wieh have
existed in the enforcement of the
dispensary law in Qharleston have
-been such as to bring about a com
munity of law-breakers and the set
ting of ruinous example to the mor
als of the rising generation of young
In reaching this point of his dis
conrne Dr. Herbert said t'hat he and
Dr. Jones were friends. He had cor
responded with him and knew the
vie~ws of Dr. Jones, who is a pr(ohibi
tionist at heart. He said this was not
a case of playing for positionl in poli
tics or seeking the political prefer
ment of any man or .set of men, but
purely and simply a question involv
ing the weal or woe of the communi
tv. He and Dr. Jones are together, Dr.
erbert said, on point of being op
.posed to whiskey, but, he declared,
the Baptist minister sha:d shown him
self ineonsistent in preferring the
'otinued operationl of the dispensary;
and -he cited passages from Scripture
in support of his position.
Dr. HIerbert declared that Dr. Jones
was again wrong in his position that
prohibition can not be enforced im
Charleston when it had not been giv
en a trial. Dr. Jones had refused to
stand with the pro&aibitionist and to
do his best towards securing an en
forcement of the law, preferring to
line up with the dispensary forces
who have been shown their ineapaci
tv and unwillingness to make the sys
t'em wvhich they stood for of practi
a: foree and effect. The community
'had no: had the chance to show what
an boe done under a prohibition en
aetment. Then Dr. Herbert made his
criticim about the city administra
Presiding Elder Herbert is the
chairman of the Central Prohibition
Leaue of Charleston and is actively
working for the cause. His sermon to
niz.:t is expected to result 'n a strict
er alinement of the forces for prohibi
tion and the dispensary.
