the decree. Secret orders have been
sent the Ameiican fleet at Hampton
Roads and Key West, and the mobil
ization of the land forces has begun.
Every day train loads of blue coats
are coming into the South, and it is
thought that the invasion of Cuba
will take place before the end of the
week. President McKinley is hesi
tating about signing tha war resolu
tions adopted by Congress against
his will, and is disposed to give Spain
a fair chance to see that America is
in earnest in demanding the with
drawal of Spanish troops from Cuba.
Our Minister at Madrid has been no
tified of the text of the resolutions
and it is supposed that he will to-day
ask for his passports and come home.
The Spanish- Minister at Washington
has made all prepaiation to take his
departure and will do so as soon as
President McKinley affixes his auto
graph to the Cuban resolutions.
The President will be authorized
to call for 60,000 volunteers, and he
will do so immediately after receiv
ing a reply to his ultimatum, and
when the order is given to invade
Cuba it is thought 200,000 men will be
at the government's disposal. The lat
est from Washington is from Gen.
Corbin, Adjutant General of the
Army. He is quoted as saying that
the South Carolina militia will be
employed in defending the State
when the emergency arrises, and it is
not proposed to order the State mi
hitie. ia Cuba. If any members of the
militia volunteer, they will be prompt
ly mustered into the regular service.
President McKinley's ultimatum
will give Spain one day to evacuate
the Island and it means nothing
more nor less than saying to Spain
"come off rom your rnghtful posses
sions or we'll shoot you off." The
Spanish Cortes assembles in Madrid
to-day and the whole country is wait
ing for the Queen Regent's speech
from the throne, or what we would
term the message to congress. Spain
cannot with self-respect accede to the
demands of the United States; she is
bound to refuse, and the United
States has gone so far that in the
event of Spain's refusal Amernca must
open fire. This, in our judgment, is
the situation to-day, and before our
next issue hostilities will have opened.
How long it will last carnnot be esti
mated. Uncle Sam has a great ad
vantage by being within easy access
of coal for his warships and his sup
ply centres, while Spain has an ocean
between these two important ele
ments to carry on a war.
Those who think it will be of short
duration are mistaken for Spain must
make a death struggle to prevent
the loss of this valuable possession,
or her internal troubles will break
loose and her dynasty will go to the
Carlist element or the government
changed from a monarchy to a Re
public. In our opinion Alfonso will
abdicate the throne and turn the
government over to a Republic rather
han allow Carlos to wear the crown.
We look for Spain's troops to even
tually be forced from Cuba and the
yellow flag of the Castillians replaced
wvith the stars and stripes and flying
from the ramparts of Morro Castle,
with an American provisional Gov
ernor in control until, in the judg
ment of the speculator's "pacification"
has been accomplished.
Upon the declaration of war it is
thought Congress will authorize the is
sue of $500,000,000 bonds. Of course
this amount is to be distributed
among the fellows who shoulder the
muskets and look grim-visaged war
in the face. Then another scheme to
bleed the people will be to put on a
war tax,and the ways and means com
mittee propose a stamp tax to raise
$120,000,000. The Congressional war
riors at a salary of $5,000 per year
can easy vote this oppression upon
the people, but it will take a revolu
tion to shake it off.

TIGER AN) DOVE PER'1H UPON THE
The Prohibition convention met
and nominated a full State ticket ;
their standard-bearer is Joel E.
Brunson, who once upon a time lived
in Clarendon and used to be a fre
quent attendant upon our county po
litical conventions. He will be re
membered as a talking member, and
the man whom Dr. Woods defeated in
a primary election in Salem, when it
was left to Salem to decide who that
section wanted to receive the nomi
nation for the Legislature.
M1r. Brunson's nomination will not
get an enthusiastic support in Clar
endon, is our opinion. He is not
popular among those with whom be
came into political contact and le is
not regarded a man qualified for
the high office of Governor. We
bave never known anything against
his personal character and he is re
garded a good business man. He
has successfully conducted a small
sash and blind factory in Sumter and
a mill near Kingstree, and may have
saved some of the results of his toil,
but the sketch given of him by the
Columbia correspondent of the News
and Courier is so highly drawn that
we must think this usually careful
correspondent has been imposed
upon. According to the News and
Courier M.r. Brunson is one of the
largest sash and blind manufacturers
in the State. Such is not th3 case
and it should not be allowed to go
uncorrected, as it is calculated to cre
ate a false impression upon the voters
of the State.
We would not reflect upon the per
sonal character of the man nominated,
but at the same time he is placed in
a position to be criticized and as the
campaign goes on we will endeavor
to place before our readers reasons
why they should not support him;
we will not permit his allies to
manufacture for him any merit he
does not deserve. The cause repre
sented by Ilr. Brunson will not be
enhanced by the step taken; it will
be regarded by many voters as a grab
for office more than a sincere effort
to carry out the theory of prohibition.
Had the convention declined to nom
inate a State ticket, but perfect an or
ganization to secure a Prohibition
General Assembly the sincerity of
their purpose would have been seen.
As it is, the rules of the Democratic
party are purposely laid aside to ad
mit a separate and distinct political
faction to use the party machinery to
give office to men in the guise of a
theory which appeals to morality.
The white voters of this State are
theoretical prohibitionists, they would
like to try the experiment if there was
any likelihood of successfully putting
into practice, but there being grave
doubts they prefer maintaining the
dispensary, as at present operated.
N(ow that the prohibition party
has entered the political field we look
for serious complications to result;
we expect to see piety and outlawry
banded together, purity and vice bat
tling under the same flag. The pious
and the pure will be struggling to drive
the liquor abomination from the land,
while the outlaw and vicious will ally
themselves with the good people to
wreaktheir vengence upon the dis
Then there is another element
which will figure in this fight, they
'are neither prohibitionists nor dispen
saryities, but they are anti dispensa
ry, and "agin the government" gen
erally, this crowd have grievances'
against the party in power and willi
go in with any party to bring about:
We venture that nearly every ex
bar-keeper and every man under sus
picion of running a blind tiger will
support the prohibition ticket. Why?
This class remember when Tillman
id the dispensary out in the bushes
when the supreme court was eL'deav
oring to choke it, there existed a
reign of prohibition law for several
months, and at that particular time
the country was deluged with rumn.
Liquor was sold within the sound
of the pulpit, it was sold from the
corn crib, over the counters, day
and night, Sundays as well as week
days. That condition was trivial
compared with what may be expect
ed should a prohibition law be enact
ed. We realize the fact that it is
difficult to write against a principle
which is right, even in theory, but
this is a day that people do not take
and swallow everything they hear;
their own observations and their own
ideas of practical sensa must govern
their actions. We know full well
when we argue against prohibition,
our argument can be torn to pieces
with biblical proof, but notwithstand-,

the people to know there are many'
things which is the common prac

TILLMAN WANTS CUBA FREE FROM
SPAIN AND WALL NTREET.
Senator Tillman delivered in the
Senate last Friday one of the strongest
speeches of his life on the Spano-;
Cuban question. He severely ar-1
raigned the President for his hesi-'
tating policy and especially for his
message recommending intervention
without recognition. This he likened
to the condition existing in the South
after the war when the countrv was
overrun with carpet baggers. He
also hints strongly that which we
have been suspecting a long time,
that there is a greater desire to pro
tect Bonds than to free Cuba.
Senator Tillman is a believer in
Cuba Libre and wants this govern
merit to recognize the independence
of the struggling Cubans, but he is
opposed to the spirit of aggression
which he thinks permeates the Presi
dent's message. We differ with our
senior Senator on this question. He
favors the recognition of a govern
ment that has no existence in fact, and
we do not. We are not opposed to
the Cubans obtaining their freedom,
but we can see no justification in this
country being dragged in, to force
The milk in the cocoanut, in our
opinion, is that the speculators in
Cuban bonds are largely responsible
for the present state of affairs and
the holders of the Spanish bonds of
course desire a continued friendly re
lation with this country. The feeling
is intense in the cosmopolitan news
paper offices, the lobbies of Congress
and the money markets, but every
thing is as serene as a May morning
in the country and among the masses
who have not yet learned why the
United States should go to war with
Spain. Senator Tillman has been up
in Washington inbaling the jingo
spirit which permeates the air at the
Capitol, and while he has not been
"carried off his feet" like some Of the
"yellow kids" of that august body, he
has permitted himself to be pushed
along by the popular demand for the
intervention and recognition of Cuba.
Some of the Senators regard the
Maine catastrophe a sufficient cause
for this goverment to bombard Ha
vana and storm Iorro Castle; this
feeling seems to be ruling in the
chamber where men are called "liars,"
a short distance from the place where
Congression records are hurled to
shut off debate. If the blowing up
of the Maine is a just cause for war
then in the name of honesty let this
government throw off the mask and
say so. If the shibboleth must be,
"Remember the M1aine," let the cry
be made and the people will know
why they are called upo'] to make
battle; but, if the outrages in Cuba
are to be taken as an excuse, when
the i-eal cause is to overrun the island
in favor of money lenders or to
awrnge the destruction of the Ameri
can battle ship why let international
restraints withhold the hand that
strikes, if that blow is guided with
Justice and Right.
FREE LIQUOR WITHOUT REVENUE,
OR LIQUOR CONEROLLED WITH
The question for the people to
solve this year is, Prohibition or
dispensary. Those favoring prohibi
tion have the best of the argument
as far as theory goes and those fav
oring the dispensary appeal to the
practical senses of the voters. Pro
hibition in the State of South Caro
lina, with a federai interstate law to
contend with, will mien nothing more
nor less than a free licence to handle
liquor. It will give us a flow of whis
key in the State with no way to pro
cure a revenue from it; there is no
use trying to hide it, people who
drink will have liquor, and they will
resort to any means to get it; even
nnder the dispensary system where
liquor can be reached with a little
trouble, there are many who will not
take that trouble, but take advantage
of the opportunity given them under
the Simonton decision, and send
abroad for the stuff. Is any of the
liquor order for sale? Watch a large
majority who receive kegs for"private
use" and see how often their supply
is replenished. Go to any freight
depot or express offiice and the re
cord is convincing that there does
exist a tremendous amount of illicit
dealing in liquor. The records of
the internal revenue department show
the number of federal licenses,issued
to men who will risk being prosecut
ed by their neighbors but they will
not take the chances with old Uncle
We believe in the principle of pro
hibition and would like to see it en
forced, but it is an utter impossibility
as long as the federal courts permit
te stuff to come into the State and
protect the shipment until it reaches
the hands of the consignee. Believ
ing that a prohibition law would be
a dead letter and cannot accomplish
the purpose of men of good inten
tions, and further, that it can only
have the effect of cutting off the rev
enue derived from it now. We are
opposed to it, will vote against it and
will endeavor to show to the people
before the campaign is over that the
dispensary is the best solution of the
liquor problem that has ever been
enacted, and it it continues to work
as under the present management it~
will become more popular every year.

LOOKS LIKE $TATESMANSIP.
Congress has adopted a resolution
recognizing "the Independence of
the people of Cuba." We are at a
loss to know whether that means
what the Cuban Junta is contending
for, or what the land-grabbers want.
Independence of the people of Cuba,
need not necessarily mean the recog
nition of the Republic of Cuba with
the struggling Gomez at its head.
This whole business notwithstanding
the declaration, "that the United
States hereby disclaims any disposi
tion or intention to exercise sover
eignty, jurisdiction or control over
said island except for the pacification
thereof and asserts its determination,
when that is accomplised, to leave
the governing and control of the
island to its people." May mean for
this government to use its forces to
drive Spain from its rightful posses
sions, and take advantage of the pov
ertv-stricken Cubans by forcing them
to submit to such pacification as a
horde of adventurers may see fit to
grant, and to turn the government
over to "its people" whenever "its
people" become strong enough to
eject them as was done in South Car
olina after 1S76. Who is to judge of
the accomplishment of "pacification,"
the carpet-baggers who will be left in
charge of the government until they
have grown rich from plundering
those impoverished Cubans? South
Carolina was left by a foreign
element in charge of her gov
ernment, and they, too, remained
here until "pacification" was accom
plished. Didn't they? The people
stood their oppression until death
was preferable to a continuance of it,
and with one mighty struggle they
broke the chains and drove these
"pacificators" from the borders of the
State. The recognition of the people
of Cuba, without recognition of tLeir
government, if such exists, has to say
the least of it a suspicious appear
WAIT AND SEE.
The News and Courier in its leader
on the war situation yesterday endeav
ors to get funny at the expense of Gov.
Ellerbe's assertion that if necessary
be will furnish 4,000 men that will
fight a circular saw. It says: "We
take it for granted that Governor
Ellerbe will be far at the front with
the soldiers from South Carolina,
fighting circular saws, and otherwise
conducting himself with desperate
valor, while other candidates for Gov
ernor will be engaged in the more
civil pursuit of capturing votes at
Democratic primaries." Our con
temporary need not worry itself as to
the consequencs which may befall
the Governor, in case he assumes
command of the State troops. Should
he go into the field while the politi
cal campaign is on, he will be doing
that which we fear many of his crit
ics will not do-Duty. Should hos
tilities begin-and we cau see no pos
sible way to prevent them-unless
Spain subjects herself to abject hu
miliation, and the President calls
upon the South Carolina militia, it
will make some of Governor Ellerbe's
critics put up one of Brete Hart's
Chinese smiles as they realize in our
chief executive a man who will do
his duty, even if he has to move the
executive department of the State in
the saddle at the head of the State
troops. In such an event the other
candidates for Governor may "engage
in the more civil pursuit of capturing
votes," but the people will be the
ones they will have to capture them
from and they will find, as will Eller
be's critics. that Duty will capture
more votes than the oily promises of
vote-seeking politicians. In all prob
ability the Governor will not be er
pected to go to the front, but if the
necessity a rises, he will be able to
make good his boast to furnish 4,000
men who will "fight circular saws" as
the expression is accepted in this
We have done our best to lend aid
to those who gave opposition to the
plunging of this country into a war;
this was done1 because we have never
yet been convinced of the necessity
for a war, and we believe that were
it not for a wild Congress the Presi
dent would have settled the contro
versy without the firing of a single
gun, but the war movement was to
strong to be headed off by the oppo
sition, and now we are facing a con
dition, which we dreaded. W ar is
staring us in the face, and now it has
resolved itself into a question of
whether or not we are loyal to the
nation. The writer's opposition to
the war does not make him forget
that he is a citizen of the United
States and is therefore in duty bound
to go to the rescue wvhenever the
nation is threatened. Although ex
empt by lawv from millitary duty we
are a member of the State militia
and whenever we receive orders from
our commanding officer, we shall re
port for duty. This is the duty of
every member of the militia and it
is also the duty of every citizen to
respond to a call from his country.

COSISTENCY, THOU ART A JEWEL.
The prohibitionists have entrapped
themselves in their own inconsisten
cy. In their desire for office they
played the role of politiciars by nom-!
inating the chairman of the Demo
cratic party for a place upon their
ticket; they knew Hon. Dan H. Tomp
kins is no prohibitionist and they ailso
knew that he is a strong advocatc of
the dispensary they knew further
that he was at one time a u:embe~r
of the State board of control; then
why did they nominate him? It was
because he was the head of the mua
clinery they want to use to land poli
tical outcasts. The very head of the
ticket while a consistant advocNAe of
prohibition has also been a persistent
seeker for office until the hope of
gratifying his ambition was so for
lorn that he wis forcel to give it up.
But the ridiculousness of" me pro
fessing t,) be advocating a religio us
principle dickering for political ad
vantage by nominating men who are
out spoken in their opposition 10 the
principle they wish to have incorpor
ated into law. it looks to us as if
our friends who are so anxious to
legislate the cravings of a mjai's ap
petite are more anxious to get office
and to do so they will compromise
the very principle they would hold
up. We can not see how a prohibi
tion ticket can be built of dispeusary
timber and the ticket aanzhed out
by the recent nrohibitiou convention
certainly has at leat two dispensary
men upon it. Dr. W. H. Timmer
man and Col. D. H. Tompkins and

The United States Senate last Sat
urday adopted a resolution recogniz
ing the Cuban Republic, which was
amended by the House on Monday.
The resolution as amended went back
to the Senate, which body declined
to accept the amendment. It was
then sent to a conference. Later the
conference report was agreed to, and
the President is directed to recognize
the independence of the people of
Cuba and is authorized to use the
entire land and naval forces of the
United States and to call into the ser
vice the State militia to free Cuba and
give her the independence she desires.
The action of Congress is virtually a
declaration of war, and whether we
know what we are fighting for~ or not,
does not make any difference now.
