Death has removed frnm our midst a
bright, and promising young man. Paul
Tisdale has been a pupil of mine, now go
ing on two years and possessed one of the
brightest winds I ever had to instruct. He
was quick, energetic. and ambitious, and it
was a constant source of pleasure to vatch
his progress and conscious pride a
be mastered one difficulty after another.
He was very desirous of getting as full a
course at the Institute as possible before
going off to college. He told me the last
day he was at school that it was his inten
tion to give the ministry his service; so
while we can't comprehend the rulings of
Divine providence in his career being ttr
minated so early, yet it is a consolation to
know that such noble t-iguts and aspiira
tions tilled hi's mind. During his cattre
course at s-:hool I never once had to call
his attention to any misbehavior whatever.
The memory of him will ever form with
me one of the bright pages of schol-room
experience. I hereby express to the be.

AMENDING THE DISPENSARY
By far the most important business that
will come before the Legislatare is what
amendments are necessary to perfect the
dispensary law and rid it of the abures
charged. We believe that the pcople are
now in a condition to consider this niatter
carefully and patriotically, and l,-islate
not to ventilate personal spleen o, advance
political interests, but do what they believe
is best for the whole State and the people
South Carolina his accomplished a great
work when she eradicated barroo:es from
her borders and enchained the liguor de
mon. No fair minded man will deny the
fact th-at the dispensary system, even as
non% operated, is a vast improvement over
lIeeiunsedt liquor s ioons. Wiun the State
put a stop to tippling shops, kept open'i un
til a late hour at night and where faacy
and enticing drinks were sold, it is 2 long
stride toward promoting teaiperance. Vast
sunis were invested in the liquor business,
and it is but natural that the men engaged
in that traffic and their friends should fight
to the bitter end what they conscientiousiy
believed a wiltul wrecking of their proper
ty.- But those parties have now found oth
er vocations-their bar-rooms are demol
ished and their costly fixtures disposed of.
A man will tight and spend money to hold
what he has, but few will care to invest 1
good money in battling for something to I
be yet secured.
Under our new constitution, bar-rooms
cannot again be opened in South Carolina.1
The only lawful change that can be made
in the dispensary law is for the State to
delegate to individnals the sale of intoxi
cants, under the same restrictions as applyt
to the dispensary. Or we can adopt totl I
Experience has taught that prohibition
does anything else than prohibit. It is
simply an exchange of the leg-lized sale of
whiskey for a horde of bhnd tigers, and an
encouragement for law-breaking. Just so
long as the process of fermentation and
ditillation are known, will some men
drink liquor and will other men supply
We believe that the people, or a majority
at least, recognize the fact that the dispen
sary system is the best solution y et male
>f the vexed liquor problem. This is es
tablisbed by the fatct that the law is being
enforced with less and less friction every
day, and those disgraceful scenes that
ushered in the dispeimary system are ntow
anknown. The only bloodshed for,
aionths was thie recent killing in uppert
Gree iville cor-ity, and such 'nfortunate
accurrences have been a frequent happen
ing with U. S. res tue eflicers.
We are free to admit that the dispensary
is not what its promoters designed it to be,
and also that liquor-drinking is increasing
instead of' diminishing. This fact is trans
parent to any one who will walk upon our
Now, would it not be better for prohi
bition, and the friends of temperance, to
come together and see if they cannot devise,
some plan by which the dispernsary can be
so overhauled, amended and remodeled as
to promote the cause of sobriety, gradually
pave the way t >r prohibition andl weed ou:
The c onstable force costs about $15,000 a
year to maintain. The price chairged by
the dispen'sary for liquor is too high. The
profits from the business have been divert
ed from the school fund, to which thev
were given by the constitutional conven
t on, and tuirned into the general treasury.
It is too easy for habitual drunkards and
minors to buv whisker.
Now, if the Legislature can remedy
those abuses, and carry out the law as it
was designed by its authors, then wye be
lieve it will solve the liquor problem and
give general satisfaction.
As now conducted, we do not believ-e
that there is any corruption or mismanag~e
meat connected with tt-: State he-idquar
ters in Columbia, and the powe'r of that I
board shoul be st engt bened and thedi
pensary en ti rely d: vorced fromt po:it:es.
Of course, the Legislature should mike a
rigid and searching investigitien of thet
business, fiom the day that Lhe dispensary
opened until the present iline, and let thet
public know ju.;t how~ tauch liquor has I
been so'd, wit are the prohits, and where
every n'le of ~ this moneyv has gone to.
