It is real funny how a deceitful man can
deceive himself quicker than the man he

contrary is true and has the convincing
proof. Deception might pay for a season,
but in the long run it will prove coals of

A regiment of .roops from lilinois and

did not fail to paint the town red. They

They went into a cigar store and called for
some of the best cigars. The proprietor

..' ... a Te Kind You Have Always Bnight
Indications That Governe
Governor Ellerbe a Safe and Honest
flan, One to be Trusted.
Without being Governor Ellerbe's spe
cial champion, we desire to state that, in
our opinion, he is one of the best abused
men in our Stato today. He had the mis
fortune to be a "peace-and-unity" candi
date, coming into office exactly at -. time
when the people were getting tired of the
turmoil and stri e of politics. Both fac
tions voted for him and both sides expce-d
too much of him. He has given the ;o
called Conservatives more political consid
eration than either of his two tredecessors
dared to do, and Ellerbe has thus seenred
the ill-will of his own faction; and when
ever he has attempted to cater to his own
crowd of Tillmanites. he has brought down
the other faction about his ears. The
News and Courier has never ceased to
hound him down on all occasions, because
the Governor has looked beyond Charles
ton. It was a bitter disappointment to
those people (who opposed the war) when
Ellerbe refused to mobilize the troops in
that city; it was equally distasteful to them
when he refused to remove the metropoli
tan police force, and thus give the worst
element of that city a chance to revel in
blind tigers. In fact. the Governor has
n:Mthing to expect from that source.
The Conservatives owe more to Governor
Ellerbe than to any publie man in thc last
eight years, and it proves a lack of grat
tude and political wisdom-to be led astray
by manufactured newspaper sentiment at
this late day.
It ought to be, in our opinion, either rro
hibition or dispensary in this campaign
the former as represented by Featherstone,
r the latter represented by Governor El
erbe. The other fellows are trring to
bunco the Governor out of a job, it seems
to us. These are our sentiments.
In all of his uilitary appointments, Gov
ernor Ellerbe has recognized both factions,
but especially the anti-Tillmanites; such
mer & Alston, Thompson, Earle and oth
ers r'.-ect credit upon the State.
We don't claim that the Governor is a
brilliant man or that he is likely to set the
woods on fire with his eloquence, but we.
do claim that he is an honest man, a safe
man-and one to be trusted.-Georgetown
Governor Ellerbe his been criticised for
making appointments all along through his
administration, and he has bestowed favors
that were most unexpected and surprising
to the public. He is being censured now
for not making selections from the upper
part of the State in providing the field and
staff officers of the second regiment of vol
unteers, because so large a proportion of
the enlisted men are from this section. The
Governor certainly displayed bad judg
ment if he was seeking political favor in
making these appointments, as not only
the preponderance of volunteers has gone
from this part of the State, but the voting
strength lies in the same region, and he
surely missed a great opportunity to popu
larize himself, according to the measure of
his critics, when he failed to choose men on
account of sectional advantages and geog
But we trust the Governor has been ac
tuated by better and higher motives, and
so far as we can discover he has not made
any mistake in choosing the men he did,
as they are capable, experienced and roli
able. Wilie Jones, Henry Thompson and
Havelock Eaves, to say nothing of the staif
officers, are men of heroic mould, and will
give a good account of themselves, whether'
in facing an enemy or looking after the
welfare of the men they will have in charge.
There is no discount on their courage,
efficiency and judgment, and the second
regiment may be congratulated on its lead
ership. Military appointments should
never be made, especially in time of war,
except for fitness and capacity, and it will
ot be charged that Governor Ellerbe
failed in this respect. If he had chosen
men from the up-country, aud there was
no scarcity of good material from which to
make a selection, the Governor would have
been censured by others for seeking the
votes of this section by the distribution of
his patronage. He is in a close place, and
as a candidate for re-election he has a
stmpy road to travel, but when he gives
the public service such men as we have
named, it is pitiful to find objection on.
the score of sectionalism, which ought to
be banished altogether from South Caro-;
ThelSpartan is carrying no candidate for
Governor, but it has no sympathy for the
manner in which Mr. Watson attacks Gov
ernor Ellerbe. Why does he not bring
specific charges, giving time, place and cir
umstance?, It is easy to make general dec
larations, and that seems to he what Mr.
Watson is doing. This is not an Ellerbe
paper, but it believes in fair dealing all

him, or whether th wi:1 of an honest, re
fleeting people is to prevail. The Herald
will continue to be for the people, let the
result be what it may.-Laurens Herald.
There is comparatively little life in the
State campaign. Watson and Tillman stiil
attack Ellerbe, but are making very little
e. of him, tby are simply making him
friends. The writer was in Columbia last
week, tad it was the impression there that
Governor Ellerbe would be re-elected on
the first ballot by 1U,000O majority. We
find that the people are not displeased with
Ellerbe--it is the politicians, and the rea
son of it is that the. can't mana;e him.
Elle-be is stronger w:th the people than le
ever was. Ie is a safe man and his back
bone is too stiff for the politicians.-Marion
We know not what legitimate influences
have been brought to bear on Governor
Ellerbe, nor how strong a pull has been
made on his political proclivities at the ex
pense of his judgment. We do know, how
.ever, that Watson, candidate for Governor,
has been soundly berating him on the
stump for appointing a former Conserva
tive colonel of the first regiment. a fact
which shows that Watson is unfit to be
the Governor of the State or to be trusted

Prohibition in Flaine--a humbug.
Maine is often referred to as the great
Prohibition State, and as an illustrious ex
ample for other States to imitate. We inti
mated last week that prohibition had been
tried in this town, more than once, and~
that it was a miserable failure; that what
was true of ocalities was true of States,
even such States as M1aine, Kansas andI
other States. IHere is an extract from an
article written by a staunch friend of the
said law and published in the Brunswick
(aine) Telegraph, which bears out our
"There is an increase of lawlessness in
aine. 'Rvum murders' are alarmingly fre
quent for a State that has so often been in
troduced to others and to itself as the 'good
old Prohibition State of MIaine.'
"The law is openly violated in many of
our commnunities and violated, too, by the
connivance of those who, 'by their oaths of
offie, are sworn to an equal and impartial
enforcement of all the laws of the State.
For years the law has been so openly vio
lated by the tuultitude of open saloons in
the city of Bangor, and with the connivance
of the city and county oficials that Bangor
has become, in effet, 'a low license city, the
amrual 'round-up' and fines of the liquor
selers being less expensive for these deal
ers than would by the payment of the Ii
cense fee required in many low license
States. WXhst is true of Bangor is eqlually
true of many other localities, even of some
of our smaller towns."

in anr-ouncing myself a candidate
for the ollice of State Senator I think
it proper to define my position on
one of the leading questions now be
fore the people-Prohibition. I be
lieve the dispensary law to be the
most practical liquor regulation that
we can have at present and its en
forcement makes it a temperance
measure, because as long as the
United States government permits
persons to receive liquor from out
side of the State for "personal use,"
just so long will prohibition fail to
My idea of a true representative of
the people, is to let the people know
his views on a question of such im
portance, and if the people whom he
represents differ with him and a ma
jority express that difference of opin
Ion at the ballot box, it is the duty
of said representative to respect their
wishes. Now, therefore, in order to
learn whether a majority of the vot
ers favor prohibition, I will request
the county chairman to provide a
separate box at each precinct and
furnish tickets printed "Prohibition"
and "Dispensary." Should the "Pro
hibtion" ticket receive a majority of
the votes east, I will pledge myself to
vote for and work earnestly for pro
hibition,feeling that to do otherwise,
I would be misrepresenting the ma
jority. I also pledge if elected, to
make a study of the county's needs
and work for its interests.
