Clarendon has a candidate on the
State ticket in the person of k.'aptain
Daniel J. Bradhan, and we k:ow
that if he has an opportunity to be
heard, the people throughout South
Carolina will delighted to honor him
with the position of Secretary of
State. Captain Bradham is a sure
winner. He has never been defeated
for any office he ever ran for, and the
people cannot support a more worthy
It is very evident to us, that Clar
endon will have to seek men 'to ac
cept those positions which do not
have a fat salary attached. There
will he no scarcity of men to seek
positions w*hich pay. A man to go
to the legislature not only sacrifices
his personal business but he actually
works hard and must be economical
if he gets back home without his ex
penses being more than bis pay. Not
withstanding this, Clarendon has
good legislative material, men who
have the ability and patriotism; these
men would serve the people if prop
erly approached. Were it not against
the established rule of this paper we
would nominate several gentlemen to
represent us in the lower house. Peo

honor to some worthy citizen in your
The political game that is being
played by Governor Ellerbe's oppo
nents, smacks very much like the
McLanrin, TIrby-Evans contest. But
the people will not *be content
to listen to unproved charges,
they want something better. We
always had a high regard for Col
onel Watson and believed him to be
honest and sincere in all of his utter
ances, but his performance at Dor
chester last Saturday did not raise
him in our estimation. Watson had
as well understand that the people do
not place much confidence in any
man who undertakes to ride into of
fice by endeavoring to show that the
man in office did not make appoint
ments to please his friends; what the
people most desire to know, did the
Governor, in making his appoint
ments, place the offices into the hands
of competent men? If Governor El
erbe filled vacancies and did not
thereby cripple the public service he
has done, what his oath of office re
quired him to do, and the complaints
of the politicians will amount to
The account of the Walterboro
meeting as sent out by correspondent
Gibbs shows that a few missionaries
are needed in Colleton county iight
now. It will be remembered it was
at Walterboro that Solicitor Bellinger
was so shamefully treated, because
he had the manliness to do his full
sworn duty. On last 3Ionday the
same mob undertook to wreak its
vengeance on Governor Ellerbe and
some of the drunken set applied dir
ty epithets to him, but the Governor
spoke all the same and when he fin
ished, there was a perceptible change
in the audience. Of course it will
not do to hold any individual account
able for the conduct of a few foolish
men but it does seem to us that the
county chairman should be able to
have order. We venture to say that
in no other county in South Carolina
will such a scene be repeated and
we further venture to say that no
other county chairman will continue
a meeting when disrespect is attemp
ted towards the candidate without
first having had the offenders arrest
The declination of Mr. Joel E.
Brunson candidate for governor to
enter the campaign has embarrassed
tl.e prohibition advocates to a con
sideable extent. Brunson's letter
puts him in the position of of'ering
himself to be voted for as a protest
against the sale of liquor with no irlea
of being elected. He might as well
ask his prohibition friends to decline
to participate in the primary. But the
prohibition standard which was lurled
by Brunson was not allowed to re
main furled long; another Richmond
stepped upon the field in the person
of Mr. Featherstone of Laurens and
he unfurled the banner and is now
carrying it over tbe State. We do
not believe the time is at hand for
der present conditions the dispen
sary is nearer temperance than would
be a prohibition law, but we cannot
help but admire the pluck exhibited
by Featherstone. The chosen leader
of his cause, faltered and fell; ordina
rily it would have chilled the ardor
of his followers but not so with
Featherstone, the fact that his leader
fell by the wayside, seemed to add to
his zeal for the prohibition cause, and
with a bravery which is bound to be
admired, he picked up the fallen bau
ner and in the face of sure defeat he
espouses the principles next to his
Prohibition will not win this time,
the people want to give the dispensa
ry a fair test, which it has not had,
then, after it has been fairly tested,
it should not prove a good strong
temperance measure, prohibition will
surely follow, and many who are now
supporting the dispensa.ay will join
the urohibitionists to drive liquor
from South Carolina.
There are very many men who
honestly believe a prohibition liquor
law can be enforced, and these are
urging prohibition, with sincere mo
tives, such men have our highest es
teem, but there is another class, nhose
motives are not sincere and who think
if the dispensary can be gotten out of
the way it will leave a clear field to
carry on a liquor traffic. The latter
class will vote for prohibition and
their votes count as much as an equal
number of sincere proohibitionists.
Then we have another class who will
support prohibition to gratify revenge,
they know that prohibition cannot be
anything like a success as long as
the present inter-state commerce
laws exist; just so long as the United
States will allow liquor brought into
the State for private use, just so long
will it be almost impossible to enforce
prohibition. Nevertheless this re
vengeful class think they see a pos
sibility of a change in the political
complexion and a hope that many
who are now floundering about on
the political sea will have a haven
thrown open to them where they may
rest their little political souls in pa
The Piedmont Headlight says: It
seems to us that the Prohibitionists
are the last people in our State to
combine against the dispensary; but
rather should they go to work and
unite with the friends of that law,
and by weeding out objectionable
features, and restricting the sale of
intoxicants, gradually pave the way
for total prohibition. In one hour
the dispensary closed the doors of
every barroom in South Carolina, and
restricted the sale of liquor between
sunrise and sunset. The temptations
and enticements of the gilded saloons
have been removed from the paths of.
our young men and you now rarely,
if ever, see a minor under the influ
ence of intoxicants. A mother can
now go to sleep knowing that her
boy is safe when out at night. A
man with the thirst for strong drink
fixed upon hina can only be saved
through the grace of God and by the
exercise of his own determination.
It is a waste of time to try to reform
a confirmed drunkard unless he wants
imself to be reformed. We can
enact the most stringent prohibition
laws, but the drunkard will have no
trouble in finding all the drink he
craves and that he can pay for. But
a great moral reform is noticeable in
our rising generation. A young man
now feels that he lowers himself to
be seen in a place where liquors are
sold, and few enter either the dispen
saries no original package houses. To
further the end of femperance rests
with our churches and Christian peo
ple. If they will expend one-half the
energy and money it will require to
conduct a political campaign in bring
ing moral influence to bear upon the
outside and dram-drinking world,
they will accomplish much more

The People Pay for the Musle-What,
the War Taxes Are.
War taxes are novel to the present
generation in the United States, and
the mere list of those imposed by the
new war-revenue bill makes an inter
esting document. We present here
with a careful abstract of the text of
the bill, which is entitled "An act to
provide ways and means to meet war
expenditures and for other purposes,"
and which becomes the law of the
land until repealed by Congress. The
act takes effect on the day next suc
ceeding the date of its passage, ex

rate for any other quantity or frac
tional part of a barrel, with a discount
of 7 1-2 per cent. on all sales by col
lectors to brewers of the stamps pro
ided for the payment of the tax. An
additional proviso was adde], as fol

Washington, D. C., June 18.-The
Senate yesterduy passed(by a vote (f
26 to 23) a bill granting a ebarter to
an international bank, in accordance
with recommemiation of the Pau
American Congress. This bill has
occupied considerable time in the
Senate this week, and the internation
al American bank which it proposes
to authorize the incorporation of, is
designed to furnish such banking and
exchange facilities as will prom ote
trade between the United States and
the countries of South and Central
America. The bill, as it bassed. the
Senate, provides that the bank shall
have a capital of $5,000,000, which
may be increased to $25,000,000.
The bank will be located in Newv
York City, will be under the super
vision of the Comptroller of the Cur
rency, like other nation-al banks, and
will have its property subject to taxa
tion by the laws of the State in which
any of its property may be located.
Under the bill, any coterie of citizens
who comply with the requirements of
the charter may organize and estab
lish an internation 'bank upon the
same footing with any other inter
national bank authorized, or incor
porated, under the provisions of this
bill. But, of course, the bill is not
yet wholly out of the woods, altnough
it is perfectly safe to prediet its
triumphant passage through the
House, since it is one of the many
measures desired and demanded by
the plutocratic moasters who seem to
hold the reins which guide the whole
pclicy of the present Congress and
the present Administration of all de
prtments of our. great Govern
The House has also passed the
resolution annexing the Republic of
Hawaii, which has also been referred
to the Senate, considered' by its Coin
mittee of Foreign Relatious and re
ported by that comnlitEec back to
the Senat~e with aii recommendation
that it do pass. The formnal debate
on the question off annexation in thbe
Senate will begin EmI:Iday tile 20th
istant). The debatte will be more
r less protracted and intense; but
t will probably be conducted behind
losed doers so that the people of
the country will not see the argc
ents pro and con. It has come to
public notice in tile Senate that two0
of the leaders of the Republican side
of the chamber, in order to get thle
Democrats to withdraw anyv policy of
delay which they might have against
the consideration and finial passage
of the war-revenue bill, promised that
the resolution of annexation should0a
not be considered at this session ot a
Congress. But it turns out to be like t
most of the promises made to the t
country by this party-the promise t
will not be kept in good faith: the I
other members on that side of the
chamber will say that these two Sen- ~
ators had no authority, or right to
make any such promise and pledge I
the Senate to any such policy. And
vet it is as wvell-known fact that the
Senate nearly always recognizes such
promises as binding upon the party t
whose leaders make them. In this
case, thev are bound to be one of two
things; either keep the promise and v
run counter to the wishes and plicy
of the President and his Administra-I
tion by laying the cousicierat ion oIf
