CHARLESTON SAYS SHE WON'T.
The Metropolitan police matter
must indeed be embarassing and an
noying to Governor Ellerbe, since the
the Charleston City Council refused
to accede to his proposition. He
showed a disposition to listen to the
appeals from Charleston, to let that
city have control of her police and at
16aset. one-third of the Council de
clined to accept the terms of the
"turn over." Now, the situation
stands thus; The Governor is willing
to take off the Metropolitan police,
conditioned that the City Council
sign an agreement to enforce the
Dispensary law. A portion of the
Council have signed and the other
members decline; among the signers
are those who are "blind tiger" sus
pects, in fact, true bills at a former
term of court were found against
them. With such a condition of
things existing, we see little prospect
for the enforcement of the law should
Governor Ellerbe recede from the
terms of his proposed agreement. The
members of the Council who refused
to sign the agreement have gone too
far to recede from their position, be
cause they have placed their reasons
on record and if what they say is
true, self-respect demands of them to
stand by their action.
The Governor has given Charleston
a chance to rid herself of the Metro
politan police, the opportunity has
been rejected, and in effect, the State
authorities have been told, Charles
ton will not obey the Dispensary law.
This condition needs heroic treatment
aud now is the time to administer
the dose. If the Governor will give
Charleston to understand that she is
a part of the State and the State laws
were made to be enforced with or
without a Metropolitan police, and as
his proposition has been rejected, he
will not only stand by thepresent police
system, but will give it all necessary
aid to accomplish the enforcement
of the law; he will have the sympathy
of an element whose influence for
good is bound to tell. There is no
doubt that a very large portion ol
the good element in that city favor
the enforcement of the Dispensary
law,and if they succeed in holding oE
to the present police machinery, they
will regard it a victory won, and tc
sustain that victory they will greatly
aid the officers in the discharge o.
The Governor should go a stei
further and give that city to under
stand that such a flagrant trampling
of the law under foot, as was doni
recently by the grand jury, will no'
be tolerated and steps syill be taker
to correct the evil; that as long as the
law is on the Statute books, juron
shall not have the right to act upox
the principle: "It not the violaton
of the law, but the Dispensary itsel.
which is on trial."
Suppose the Governor recedes fron:
the position he assumed, the resuli
will be far reaching; the effect will be
felt in every town whose officers are
not favorable to the law, and the Gov.
ernor will find himself with a moun
tain of trouble on his hands. There
are a number of towns in the Stat4
whose municipal officers are antag
onistic to the Dispensary law anc
we,-e it not for the fear of having
Metropolitan police thrust upon
them and the juries drawn by county
officials who are beyond their control,
not the slightest effort would be made
to subdue the illicit selling of liquor;
but if Charleston is released from the
supervision of a police who will en
deavor to enforce the law, it will
embolden the smaller towns and in a
short while the authorities will find
it necessary to increase the constabu
lary to a larger force than we have
ever had before.
The Greenville "Mountaineer,'
edited by Col. J. A. Hoyt, for whom
we have the highest esteem, says:
-THE M NI.NG TntEs was a staunch
supporter of ex-Governor Evans in
the Democratic primary last summer,
but the result was accepted by THE
TixEs with fairly good grace" and
then takes occassion to read us a kind
of lecture for saying, "We did
not support Earle in the pri
mary election, but we know that he
has the ability, and we believe he will
not let local politics hamper him in
supplementing Tillman's efforts for
the good of the people who so highly
honored him." Our esteemed con
temporary does n3t appear to lik our
use of the word "supplementing" and
makes the following retort:
All that is said about Senator
Earle's ability and patriotism will be
readily recognized and appreciated,
but the talk about "supplementing"
the efforts of his colleague is scarcely
in keeping with the record he has
made in public life. He will co-oper
ate with the senior Senator in all
measures that meet the approval of
his judgment, but Tillman knows
that Earle will act independently and
conscientiously, and will not take
the position of a "supplement" in any
respect. He is just as much of a
United States Senator as his colleague,
and he was elected by the people of
South Carolina, to whom alone he is
responsible for his acts."
In using the language complained
of, we but use the words of Judge
Earle when he became a candidate
for the United States Senate. In his
letter announcing has candidacy, or
rather his appeal to the voters, he
said: "I am in accord with Senator
Tillman in the positions assumed by
him in the Senate, and if elected I
shall supplement his able efforts to
protect the rights of the people with
such power as I may have and with
all the earnestness of my nature."
Refer to the files of the "Moun
taineer" andit will be seen that we
quote Judge Earle correctly; there
fore, when we talk about "supple.
menting" the efforts of Tillman, it is
in keeping not only with Earle's record,
but also with his solemn written
promise made to people when
asking for their votes. Would
the "Mountaineer" place Senator
Earle in the position of a
tricky politician, who has no
regard for promises made? We be.
lee that Senator Earle is a con
scientious man, and we know him to
be as "much of a United States Sena
tor as his colleague," but neverthe
less he was made a United States Sena
tor after his promise to "sus ->lement'
Tillman's efforts and we feel satisfied
he will stand by that promise.
The time for the "Mountaineer" to
have objected to Senator Earle "sup
plementing" Tillman's efforts was
when Judge Earle's letter appeared.
It offered no objections then, and it
should not do so now. We remem
ber the able fight the "Mountaineer'
made for Judge Earle and how it
endorsed his every utterance, in fact,
the "Mountaineer" was as zealous for
Earle as THEn Tms was for Evans.
Our man was defeated and we tool
his defeat as gracefully as we knew
how ; we remembered our promise te
submit to the will of the majority and
to support the nominee, no more
could be done-even with "fairly
good grace," but our contemporary is
not satisfied with having defeated us,
it wants to go farther and forget the
promises made by its candidate.
Earle did promise to supplement
Tillman's efforts and we do sincerely
hope that our little local quarrels will
not interfere with his doing so. 0.

All of the newspapers in the State
opposed to the Dispensary system
take great delight in prating on the
increase of whiskey drinking. They
will tell how awful it is to behold
men who never before carried liquor
to their homes, walking about with a
bottle in their pockets and carrying
quantities of the vile stuff to their
homes where little innocent children
will have the temptation set before
them. But these same papers do not
say anything about the decrease of
drunkenness on the streets and pub
lic places. Any unprejudiced man
will admit that under the present
system a drunken man on the -streets
is a rare sight.
When the law first went into oper
ation the change came freighted
down with political animosities, and
it was necessarily in a crude state,
but with time the management be
came better, and to-day, with its
present management, it is making
converts out of some who were most
bitter in their opposition.
There was considerable opposition
to what is known as special privileges
for tourist hotels and when the author
ities reorganized the constabulary
force, the first step taken was to for
bid the hotel Dispensaries from sell
ing after the hour fixed by law and
to take away whatever special priv
ileges they heretofore had. In this
step the authorities are backed up
with the intention of the law and we
believe it will have a wholesome
effect in convincing outsiders that the
authorities are not so much after
revenue as they are for controlling
the sale and decreasing the whiskey

He is a Charleston man and knows

"sightless tiger" is short. Chief Bahr

WE NEED REFORU.
We agree with the Orangeburg
Patriot, which says:
"A simon pure reformer has to
hold his nose when, he undertakes
to justify some things that have been
done under the name of reform. Too
much money is spent in running the
State government and some of its
institutions. There is ample room
for real reform."
Those of us who went into the Re
form movement from purely patriotic
motives, and worked hard to correct
the very evils of which we now com
plain,feel that our efforts have been in
a measure wasted ;we feel that we drove
one set of money changers from the
temple and allowed another set to
to get in. The Reform faction was
made up of both, the good and the
bad; like every new movement, it
takes time to eliminate the bad from
'the good. The people now have had
time to see who have been faithful to
the trusts reposed in them, and who
have used that trust for self ag.
grandisement. The men who did
not come up to the expectations of
the people must be retired and a
new set put in their stead. There is
room for reform and the people want
to put men in office who are reform.

HISTORY WILL FIX IT.
Some newspapers put considerable
stress on Cleveland's duck hunting
expedition on a government vessel
after he went out of office. We see no
harm in it. 'Tis true, when McKin
ley took the oath of office, Cleveland
was no more than any other citizen,
but nevertheless, this would be a
small and narrow government indeed
if it should not extend a courtesy to
We do not believe in this constant
nagging, because it does no good, an&
when Grover Cleveland went out of
office, the only thing in order, to be
discussed, are those acts performed
while in office. The people do not
care a cent whether Mr. Cleveland
went on a ducking expedition on a
vessel belonging to the government,
but what is a source of worry to them
is what the result of his administra
tion will be. If he was right, his
name will be written on the pages of
history as the greatest of Presidents,
but if, as many think, he was the tool
of the money power and through him
the Democratic party was betrayed
intothe hands of the Republican agents
of monopolies and trusts, then will
the pages of history record him as
the blackest of ingrates and traitors.
A TARIFF SESSION.
Congress is in extra session now and
the principle business for which it was
called is to manufacture a tariff law
similar to the one Mr. McKinley
offered years ago and which sent the
Republican party down to defeat.

discussed,ras we know that Congress

[From the Silver Knight-Watchman.j
The rallying cry of the Republican
campaign was the return of pros
perity and McKinley was proclaimed
as the "advance agent of prosperity."
Cleveland's policy was denounced
for having produced universal dis
tress. The first act of the incoming
administration is the full and com
plete adoption of Cleveland's finan
cial policy. Mr. McKinley was not
satisfied with the adoption of the
Cleveland policy in words, but he
selected a Cabinet, every one of
whom is a conspicuous advocate of
Cleveland's most extreme vic on
the money question. It is now p'o
posed to cure every evil which flesh
is heir to by tariff tinkering. It is
understood that a tariff bill has been
in course of preparation by the com
mitteeon ways and means of the
House of Representatives since De
cember last and that it is to be forced
through the House under drastic
rules immediately after the conven
ing of the extra session. Already the
organs of the conspiracy are making
war upon the Senate and the Senate
rules. They insist that no time shall
be wasted in recording the edicts
which come from the House; that
the House of Representatives will re
main idle and do no other business to
emphasize any hesitation which may
be manifested in the Senate to pass a
tariff bill. Reasonable time for de
bate and investigation is denounced
in advance as an obstruction to de
prive people of their rights. The
muzzling of the Senate to create a
one man power in that body on the
model of the power exercised by the
czar of thE House was mildly sug
gested by the Vice President and
that suggestion is re-echoed through
the gold press of the country. If free
amendment and free debate can be
cut off in the Senate, there will be no
legislative body in any just sense of
the term in the United States. It is
manifest that this imperious demand
for tariff legislation is solely and ex
clusively in the interests of manufac
turing trusts, to enable them to fix
the price of the necessaries of life
without competitio from abroad,
while agriculture must continue in
competition with the silver st: -4ard
countries with one hundred p,
advantage and with the cooli
of Asia. There is no doubt
