THE MANNING TIMESD
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, February 13, 1895.
Governor Evans is to be married
so report says on the 28th inst.
Harrah for him and we hope, if be
has troubles at all, that they will be
The long lost steamship La Gas
cogne which sailed from Havre on
the 26th of last January and was
thought to be lost, from the fact that
she was eight days over-due, arrived
safely in New York last Monday
night. She had encountered several
terrific gales and passed through a
most severe ordeal but come out
with damage to her machinery only.
if the people follow the advice of
Senator-elect B. R. Tiliman the con
stitutional convention will not be
troubled !with scheming politicians,
but that body will be made up of
men who have the welfare of the
country at heart and will give us a
constitution that our children will
not blush to read and study. Till
man was the first to say "let the con
vention be made up of the best men
regardless of factional affiliations."
Those were patriotic words and if
people heed them all will be well.
It is amusing to see what a change
has come over some of the news
papers throughout the State, with
regard to the administration of Gov
ernor Evans. Some that prided
themselves on saying mean and con
temptiblie things about him before
he was inaugerated, are now running
over each other to get a chance to
complirrent him. There still remains
a few that are critizing him upon the
principle of the fellow that said the
horse was twenty hands high, and be
cause he said it, "he'd be goll-darned
if he would not stick to it." Just so
with sorme of the newspapers, they
said Evans was a bad man, and hav
ing said so, it matters not how good,
or how able his~administration is, he
is bad anyhow.
The correspondent in the Sumter
Herald who signs himself Reformer
is r ot very consistent. He takes the
liberty to use our name in one of
his articles and when over our own
signatare, we ask that he come out of
his hidipg place tftt we may know
the color of his hide; Le intizrates that
we are not big enough for him and
a sight of us may nauseate him.
Now, we have no idea who "Reform
er" is, but we are willing to
take chances and wager that
he voted for Haskell in 1890;
that he did not go to the polls in
1892 to vote for Moise in the general
election, and that hie voted for Pope
and for T. B. Johnson in 1894. If
our measurement of "Reformer" is
correct no wonder at the tender
stomach he carries about with him.
We did our best to pull him out of
his hiding place, but since learning
of his inclination to become nause
ated at the least provocation we con
grratulate ourselves on our most for
tunate escape. For who knows that
instead of a wolf, we might have come
in contact with a buzzard.
Ever since the last election we
have been working with all of our
mnight to bring the white people of
this State together and looking for
ward to such a happy State of affairs,
we regard the neccessity of making
the coming constitutional convention
a non-factional body. We desire to
see men sent to that convention who
will rise above petty factional quar
rels and go to work for the best in
terests of the whole people. Because
we hold such views there are a few who
have taken up the idea that we want
to look backwards to find a place to
straddle, but such is not the case, it
is our honest opinion that unless
factional feeling is laid aside in the
making up of the constitutional
convention trouble is ahead of us and
we will only discover it when too
late to seek a remedy.
There are men in the Reform
ranks that profit by a continuance of
of strife. They do not want peace
because when peace reigns their
trade in stock is gone and they will
be left high and dry on the rocks of
despair. This is the class of men
we have been warniug the people
against, and it is this class who are
anxious to control the constitutional 1
convention. The Piedmont Head- 1
light which is looked upon as the
mouth piece of Senator Irby, was
bitter in its opposition to the con
vention before the election, and now
it is foremost in in its oppouition to
anything that tends to making the
convention a non-factional body. It
doe's not want peace, and if its ut
terances have any influence, it pro
poses to keep the people in a con
stant state of turmoil and strife. C
Here are two paragraphs which we
clipped from one of its recent edi- i
torials and we ask in the name of i
common sense will the Reformers
swallow such clap-trap? and do they C
not see the dangerous leadership of
--This is no time to talk about peace and
unity. We begged for those concessions 1:
bafore the last election, but when we found
the minority faction and the negroes ~
voting as a unit for the same candidates, t
we knew such pieas were a hullucination t
and a snare, and that our Reformers must
clinch their power through a Constitutional a
convention before there will ever be any
harmony among the factions in our State.
"The Headlights advice to our farmers is
to keep away from that meeting. To give I
yuruport to those thirteen singers will.
situply be to furnish a stick to break your
own had with. Let the Antis put out a
thei:- candidates, and the Reformers will "'
put out their candidates; anct then we will
have no fear for the cause of the people." r~
- Editor G.antt fought the calling of tJ
the constitutional convention al
though it was one of the main prom- b
ises made in the platform of the Re
form movement, a:2d now that the ti
Refcorm movement has succeeded in
haviug the convention called, he with b
one leap turns a somersault and is a
now trying to ruu the whole busi-d
g ss in the interest of those who wantd
to control the convention for their
own selfish purposes.
The Times has worked hard for
the Reform movement and it pro
poses to continue the work, but it
will not be led off by false gods nor
will it follow the lead of men who,
if they cannot rule will ruin. We
want to see the white people of this
State working together for a common
cause, and it doe's not take a Solo
mon to see if something is not done
to harmonize things in South Caro
lina, disaster and ruin awaits our
political, social, and business in
terests. The Democratic Executive
Committee has ordered a primary for
the election of delegates to the con
vention. Let us send our best ma
terial without regard to factional
differences. Let us find men who
will go to the convention to work for
the improvement of our free schools
and for the maintainance of white
man's supremacy. By all means let
us steer clear of men who want to go
to the convention because they have
an ax to grind. We would rather
see our county entirely without rep
presentation in the convention if we
cannot find men who will go there to
work for the best interests of the
people. Let those who aspire for
the honor of being delegates come
out in the newspapers and tell the
people what they propose to do, so

A Talk With Dspenser Eryin.
Say, look here! what's the trouble
with the dispensary?
"Nothing, all's serene."
Have you read the Governor's re
marks concerning dispensers, their
shortages, bad book-keeping, &c.?
"Yes, I read his remarks as pub
lished in the Register, and am much
surprised. I can only speak for myself,
and will say, positively, that they do
not apply to me. I stand ready to
day, as I have stood ready at any
moment, night or day, since I have
been dispenser at Manning. to turn
over to State, town, and county, ev
ery dollar of money due, and to ac
count for every package that should
be in stock. However, the Governor
realized that his remarks in this con
nection were rather broad and
sweeping, and he has since qualified
In your opinion, have dispensers
much opportunity to commit fraud
or embezzlement of funds?
"Precious little at best, and none
at all where dispensers give good
bonds and county boa ds do their
duty. Our county 'hoard, as now
constituted is composed of F. C.
Thomas, W. E. Jenkinson, and C. R.
Felder. Mr. J. C. Johnson, a former
member of the board, is now a resi
dent of Beaufort county. The new
law makes the county supervisor ex
officio a member of the bo- rd, and
this accounts for Mr. Felder's pres
ence on it. This is a good boa-d;
they are men who don't use entoxi
eants in any shape; are conscien
tious in their support of the law and
are anxious that as much good ae is
possible shall result from its enforce
ment but are not so hide-bound as to
think that a strict conformance
of the provisions will moralize
the State at once, but that its good
ffects and results will be gradual,
onstant, and progressive. My busi
ess relations with the board so far
have been pleasant and agreeable.
They look sharply after the business
and show a disposition to hold me
down squarely to the provisions of
the law. I am glad of this, otherwise
the continual pressure might induce
a laxity on my part. So far I have
not exceeded my powers, nor been
ax in my duties, and consequently
there has been no friction between
the dispenser and county board."
How often do you report?
"We make a monthly report and a
How do you manage about taking
"A member of the board is always
resent, in faet takes stock himself
and examines the books."
Does the amount in stock always
ally exactly with your books ?
"No, there is more or less shortage,
which occurs in various ways; some
imes during a press of business ai
ackage is sold that we fail to get on<
he application, and whilst we get1
he money for it, yet, it will not ap
ear on the book; then in checking
off the various sizes and denouaina
ions of packages from the applica
ion book to the day book now and
gain a package will be lost sight of,
nd thus in the course of three months
uring the rush in the Christmas
eason, the number of packages sold 1
nd failing to appear on the books
ill amount to considerable; in some 1
nstances with me to as much as
ixty odd dollars. But then we must]
ave the money for them, and when (
tok is taken a bill of the shortage
s also made and charged in the col-i
mn of sales, and so appear in the
ext month's report."
Is the method of book-keeping
"Well, no, not with me; I have my
wn method, which is simple.
Lut it is incessant and very
edious. In addition to the monthly
eport we make a weekly report of C
iales for the week; this with a check a
: cover the State's part of sales is d
ailed every Monday morning to the a
tate commissioner. These several
sports are exceedingly troublesome."

Yes, considerable; I paid out of

)llars in six months for them. They e
...memchtou.i bu+ I think lai
they should be bought, otherwise
tl-e country will be filled with use
less utensls, and then it keeps that
much money at home. If I paid out
in six months $175, why other dis
pensers paid out as much, or more,
and the aggregate will amount to
say ten thousand dollars per annum.
Now, by buying the bottles, this
money will be kept in the State,
which otherwise would go to glass
factories outside. It is f.alse econo
my. It would be better to buy these
bottles from citizens at an advance
over the factory prices; that is the
way I look at it. Every dollar kept
at home benefits the county. A
large proportion of these bottles
were brought in by children, and
now these little peolle are deprived
of their sou ce of revenue; they are
sad and disconsolate. their business
has suddenly terminated. Many lit
tle fellows, through tl- eir activity in
searching for bottles, had a quarter
to spend, who, from now until we
buy bottles again will never see a
cent. The bottle business had a ten
de icy to encoarage in them thrift
ind indusiry,and I think theyshould
beencour 'ged in this by the State.
But I tell you it is a great relief to
me to be rid of them; they caine in
every moment of the day, and put
me to my wits ends to find place to
store the bottles. I have the back
room there now stocked full of cases
of them. Well, you must excuse me
now, but come again.

CRIME'S FAIR DECEIT
Ingenuity Known to None so WeU
as to the Law Evader.
LAIR CITED IN CAROLINA'S CAPITAL
In the Heart of Columbia, the Seat of the
Dispensary, an Underground faloenj
of the Most Remarkable Con
cealment, is Unearthed.
COLUMrIA, S. C., February .-6liek
moonshiners who have for years been
making a study of ingenious methods
to evade the United States revenue
laws are not in it with the South Cam
lina dispensary law evaders.
A lair was unearthed yesterday in
the heart of Carolina's capital, which
was almost in the bowels of the earth,
a lair which rivals that of the North
Carolina moonshiners who dived
through a river's waters to reach the
mouth of their underground distillery.
It was way down under the cellar of
the grocery store of Messrs. Platt,
Hook & Shull, and the whole construc
tion of the underground tunnel, partic
ularly the manner of concealing the
way of entrance, was the aeme of
ingenuity. About $1,300 worth of liquor
was bagged, for between 300 and 400
gallons of good liquor were confiscated.
Down Into the Bowels-of the Earth.
The search of the place was made by
the liquor constables and police. The
owners of the store refused to allow the
officers to go into the store, but opened
up the cellar. The building is a very
long one and the eellar-way the officers
were ushered into ran only half way.
At the rear end was solid earth. The
officers knew what they were doing,
however, for they sent for shovels and
spade and began to dig into the wall of
earth. After digging forward about
six feet their instruments struek air
and they soon got into the rest of the
cellar. They went in and searched all
around. On one side next the brick
wall was what appeared to be the solid
foundation of a large chimney, run
ning on up through the building. On
this their attention eentered. Pretty
soon they began to et into the briek,
and in a short time they gazed through
and by the flickering light of a candle
they could see that the chimney was a
false one, that inside a ladder ran up
wards and there was a neat little bar
with all necessaries inside. They cut
the hole larger and got inside.
The Subterranean Bar Unearthed.
They saw the bottom of an ingenious
trap door in the floor abovM, which
eould not be detected above as it was
eovered by shelving. Pat the liquor
had not yet been found and the real
ingenuity of the hiding place was yet
to be seen. The sonstables looked
around the inside walls of the chimney
md towards the onter wall they Inslly
liscovered a door at the mouth of a
ong dark tunnel running ba4k into
the "bowels of the earth." A man
,ould almost stand ereet in the neatly
.onstrueted tunnel. Then the explora
Hion of this tunnel began. The nemsta
bles went en and on tntil they struck
, point where te tuwel divided and
branched in opposite direetiona, and
hen the liquor was in sight. There
was about forty feet of unxnetnhg and
bhe earth taken out of it had been used
,o make the false baek to the eellar.
Et took the constables several hours to
ret all the liquor stored ins the tunnel
t And there was lets of it. n all
~he eonstables estimate they got nearly
our hundred gallons.

A iLmA, Felrnary 12.- The meet
ing of the exceutrve board of the South
ern Pacscnger association tha t was held
here yesterday hung Are ami no action
was taken as was e:pected looking af
ter the reorganization of the ass.ocia
tion. As is well known, the southern
lines that form the association. have
been at outs for somc time ptst and all
of the leading railroad have given no
tiee of witidrawal from the association.
There was to be a meeting of the aszo
eiation in New York n monc). ago to
pa':ch up the association, h ut owing
to a Ink of a quorum no-hing was
achieved. There was no qnorum pres
ent yesterday and the meeting of the
exeentive board was a failtre. Many
of the prominent passenjger agents
eame last night, howeevs, and the
mass meeting today of all the roads of
the seetion may bring so2ae good re
sults. The railroads have been caled
to send representatives to this mass
meeting for the purpose of seeing what
enn be done with !,he Southern Passen
rer association. It is thought that a
iomplete reorganization wfll result and
bat a new association will be formed
with no connection with the Southern
Railway a-nd 6teamship sisociation un

lay Evans, the republican claimant of

o the charges of gorernor Turney. It
omprises specified repliws to the alle
rations of the contestani as to frauds
.n republican counties &ad then sets
ap at great length charges of fraud in
number of other counties to which
he cont-estee made objection in joint
xvnvention. Evans begki by empha
izing his protest against the proceed
ngs on the ground that tieg are un
xOnstitutional, indsts that the law
msed by the present eilslature is re
iwactive and asserts that governor Tur
:ey's charges are glittering genernlties.
he paper denies that Turne;- refceived
majority of votes. It aserts that the
>o1i tax. law in force in this state is
mneonstitutional. Evans :na;ee snecific
