THE STATE AM) I:EXTHEMI%T0'NE.
LaptIsi A.ssociatio oif Iibeville Co
ty Says The State is Unfair and
The State Replies.
The following -resolutions were
adopted by the Abbeville Baptist as
sociaTiOn. in session in Greenwood..
and sent out by the secretary:
"Disapproves of the unfair fight of the
Columbia State on C. C. Feather
stone and its advocacy of drinking..
"The following resolutions offered
by H. A. Graham were unanimously,
adopteld by the Abbeville Baptist as
sociation in its session in the First
Baptist church of Greenwood, on last
Wednesday. just after the report on
tomperice had been adopted. This
body is comp,)oserd of twenty-five
churches in Greenwood and Abbeville
"Resolved. 1' That we as an asso
ciation put ourselves on record as
disapproving of the unfair and unjust
fight made on C. C. Featherstone. pro
hibition candidate for governor, by the:
Columbia State. and especially do we
condemn tbe editorials in that news
paper. advo 'ating the use of intoxi-:
cants. and pretending to prove, from
God's Word, that the Holy Bible ap
proves of drinking and that our Bless
ed Savior indorsed it.
"Resolved. 2. That these resolutions
be sent to the following newspapers,
by the clerk of the body, with the re-:
quest that they publish them: The
Columbia State, the Charleston News
and Courier, the Baptist Courier, the
Columbia Evening Record, the Green-:'
wood Journal, the Greenwood Index.
and that we request all papers in the
State that stand for fairness, justice,
and temperance to reproduce them."
The Columbia State, in its issue of
August 11, said editorially:
"We present these proceedings of
the Abbeville Baptist Association, in
viting especial attention to the head
lines and the charges in the body of;,
"To the Editor of the State: The en
closed circular explains itself. I am
sending you this as instructed by the
Baptist association of Abbeville coun
"B. B. Cheatham, Clerk.
"Donalds, S. C., Augucst 11, 1910."
(Here appear in the State's editor-'
lal the resolutions as set out above.)
"Attempts have been made upon
various occasions to intimidate the
State-the earliest we recall was by
lynchers in mass meeting assembled;
the latest o,f con.;equence p- ecedili
this year, by dispensary grafters.
"We have no objection to this de
nunciation of the State being placet
in the homes of every Christian in
South Carolina if that which is de
nounced goes along with it. The'
State courts the light of truth.
"This resolution assj.mes to defend
the Holy Bible and our Blessed Sar'
iour yet breaks one of the Ten Corn
mandments in the hieaGing of the cir
cular. The statement that the Stat'
appears in "advocacy of drinking" i&'
"None of these men supporting j
this resolution has pointed out where
in the State is unjust to Featherstone
or attempted to meet the State on'
"None of them assuming to stand for
"fairness, justice, temperance," truth.
and religion, has appealed to the Bible
to disprove the State's quotations fromt
the Bible. . t
-"They attempt not only to muzzle I
the press, but to muzzle the Word of
God itself. They, decreeing the tern- I
-perate use of wine immoraL -vould 1
pillory the State for supporting itt,
'conviction to the contrary by quoting I
.Jesus! * .
"The State was challenged to provet
by the Bible that the temperate use
of intoxicants was legitimate in the r
ihistory of the Bible. There was noth
ing about "approves"~ or "indorse" as P
those resolutions alleged, but the
proof of legitimacy stands. It can not il
be met. r:
i "That which can not be answered.'
they condemn. Ft is an easy but cow-'
ardly mann.er of "settling" the ques
"It will be a sad time for South
Carolina when honest men may not
-express their convictions and when
the press may not temperately criti
cise a candidate for public office.
"It will be a sad day for South a
Carolina when the appeal is not to: n
argument and reason, but to the brute h
force of the bludgeon-in whatever b~
form applied." :t4
The State said editorially on August t]
"A body of unnamed men, acting as :a
the Baptist Association of Abbeville
county, has published an attack upon t
the State. and has asked all news- a
papers in South Carolina -that stand ,c
for fairness, justice, and temperance' c
to reproduce its ex parte assertion s
that the State is making an 'unfair c
fight' on C. C. Featherstone, that it s
is an advocate 'of drinking.' tha+' i t
:xuts,' and that it pretends to prove
)y the Word of od that the Bible 'ap
roves of drinking and that our Bless- 1
)d Savior indorses it.'
"In the name of 'fairness, justice,
ind temperance.' These men, conceal
?d behind a religious association's'(
iame. attempt to place their con
lemnation of the State in the homes 1
>f tens of thousands of men and wo-i
nen of South Carolina who have not I
he privilege of judging the State for
:hemselves. and whom the State's re- z
ply can not reach.
"These men, speaking through a t
:hurch body, and for 'fairness, jus- I
Lice and temperance' would 'con
lemn' this newspaper in every housed
hold of South Carolina for an 'unfair
ess 'that they have not dared attempt
n es%'blish by appeal to the State's
readers. They would 'condemn' this'
newspaper to every voter in South i
Carolina for 'its advocacy of drink
ing' and for implied sacrilege wnen
not one has attempted to show to the
readers of the State that which he al
leged is true.
"A more unfair, unjust, and intem
erate effort to create an unfounded 1
entiment has not before emanated
rrom a reputable source in South Car
"It has come to a pretty pass when
hose agencies supposed to stand at
.he very front in advocacy of light
ind truth and morals attempt to
hrottle free speech and muzzle the;;
press by arraying against it the pre
ludices of the multitude aroused by
in untruthful indictment tWy which no
inswer can be made to the jury.
"A handful of men, sinners, and
inning have enacted a 'moral law.'
rhey pronounce the temperate use
f intoxicants a sin, and would close
:he Bible to the people, and condemn
hose that would open it.
"That is not the spirit of Liberty or
)f Democracy. What is it?"
Statement From Joel E. Brnnson. t
ro the Editor of The State:
I regret to see in today's issue of
rour paper that our Abbeville associa
ion has "rushed into print" in de- I
ense of Mr. Featherstone as the pro
ibition candidate for governor. Espe- t
ially so as there are two other. pro
ibition candidates without blemish in I

Quite a number of prominentpo
ibitionists met-in Columbia, June 15,2
905, and adopted a resoluton in fa- r
-or of calling a State convention and, c
~ppointed a committee to arrange for r
and call the convention. When the
ommittee met (Oct. 26) during fair, o

e had a majority of the few presentA

ereafter all of the work of the pro- nI
ibitionists be done through the Law:

ad about the matter is not the pur- t
