PROHIBITION vs. DISPENSARY.
The political campaign is now past
the half way mark and the campaign
ers are wending their way towards
the up-country. Those who have
watched the course of events are pre
pared to make predictions as to the
outcome of the contest, for it is agreed
that there is but one important issue
-Prohibition against Dispensary.
When the contest began there was
no well-defined issue and most of the
candidates undertook to manufacture
political capital by casting insinua
tions ou Governor Ellerbe without
attempting to offer the slightest
proof; they undertook to build moun
tains out of mole-hills by creating the
impression that the Governor played
the wilds in making his appointments,
that he went back on his friends, he
was lacking in backbone, etc. Yet
not one of them submitted any proof
nor did one of them dare insinuate
corruptness or malfeasance in office,
but on the other hand, when pinned
down all of his oppcnents admit Gov
ernor Ellerbe to be honest, that his
administration is free from scandal,
and the promises made in his inau
gural address have been faithfully
fulfilled, not7iLhstanding the fact he
has had more embarrassing conditions
to contend with than any former
'Under the circumstances the op
position utterly failing to show that
Governor Ellerbe is not entitled to a
second term, his re-election would
be conceded without "another gun
being fired," but the issue before the
people--Prohibition or Dispensary
puts the contest in a different shape.
The Prohibitionists, who are support
ing that measure conscientiously, are
not opposed to Governor Ellerbe, be
cause they know him to be a pure
man who has given the people a wise
and clean administration, but they
are opposed to the sale of liquor and
Governor Ellerbe believing the dis
pensary system the most practical
plan yet devised to control liquor, is
advocating that system, which is con
trary to the views and wishes of the
Prohibitionists, hence their opposi
tion to him.
In the person of C. C. Featherstone
have the prohibition element selected
a champion, and he is manfully hold
ing up their cause; from county to
county he advocates the State doing
away with the beverage feature in its
sale of spirituous liquors, and that it
shall only permit the dispensaries to
sell the stuff for "medicinal, scien
tifical, sacramental and mechanical
purposes." As we understand the
position of the Prohibitionists, and if
we are wrong we invite correction,
the control and sale of spirituous and
malt liquors is to remain with the
State as it is now, but that the bever
age feature shall only be eliminated.
If we are correct in this, we do not
see how those opposed to the State
dealing in the stuff can support Mr.
Featherstone, for he is advocating a
measure which must be convincing to
every mind will not work, aside from
the fact that by their votes for him
they will be jumping out of the fry
ing pan into the fire. Those who are
strict temperance men cannot vote
for Featherstone if they adhere to the
doctrine "touch not, taste not, handle
not," because Featherstone does not
advocate the putting of liquor out of
the way. He wants it to stay here
and wvants the State to control it as
at present; the only thing he asks is
for the stuff not to be sold for people
to drink. We do not believe the peo
ple are ready to experiment with an
idea, that before they begin, is known
to them to be impractical and can
only result in failure and reproach to
the cause of prohibition. But as the
issue has been made, with a man rep
resenting this doubtful side, the other
side representing a plan only partially
tried and that trial under the most
provoking and harassmng circumstan
ces, it is for the people to say by their
votes which plan they will adopt.
Governor Ellerbe in representing
the dispensary does so as a temper
ance man, whose whole life, by pre
cept and example has been a shining
temperance light and were it in his
power he would banish the liquid
fiery poison from the land, but as a
man acquainted with the ways of the
world, he knows that so long as the
hands of the state government, and
forbids them from interfering with
inter-State commerce, and thereby
allowing people to get liquor from
outside the State, just so long will a
prohibition law prove a mockery and
an open avenue to the lawless.
Now that the issue is clear cut and
well defined, there is nothing for the
voters to do but to select for Gover
nor, the man representing, or who is
the exponent of the issue represen
their views, and that selection is to
be made between Ellerbe and Feath
erstone, the former the exponent of
the dispensary, a plan which will, if
enforced, be a practical temperance
measure, the latter a plan which upon
its face shows that it is impractical,
and only at best theoretical prohibi
tion. The other candidates for Gov
ernor are all for the dispensary ex
cepting Col. Tilinan and he wants
high license with the towns to bear
the burden and the counties to get
the revenue, but the others are
not now being seriously considered
since the issue has been defned.
HE SHOULD BE URATEFUL.
The Fe-miuan has no personal ill
will toward Mr. Thomas, but when
he offers for public office we deem it
our duty to place impediments in his
Candidate Henry R. Thomas should
have great reason for self-congratula
tion since the Sumter Freeman pub
lished the above. That paper now
says it has no personal ill will to
wards Mr. Thomas, not even after ac
cusing him of being a thief, murderer,
fire-bug and all of the basest crimes
known to man. Why, if the Freeman
did have any personal ill will, in order
to show it, would have to assasinate
Thomas in cold blood, for it has done
everything else to him.
We have no disposition to take up
Mr. Thomas' cause, nor are we sup
porting him for re-election, but when
we read the horrible accusations
against Thomas published in the
Freema-n, and then for the editor to
disclaim any personal ill will since
Thomas' brother, J. J. rIagiu, takes
the editor to task it looks like the
horrible accusations were made re
gardless of truth and only for the
purpose of deceiving the people when
Thomas offers for public office to
place impediments in his way. Such
journalism is not calculated to give
strength to the influence of the press.
We believe this to be one year
that the people in selecting their rep
resentatives will be governed more
by merit and qualification than by
the glad handshake. What is need
ed in the general assembly are men
who are in a position to know the
people's needs and~ who will take that
pride in the honor conferred upon
themi to work for those needs.
The latest dispatches say,. that
Spain has propounded questions to
President McKinley, looking to peace.
Spain wants to know, will Uncle Sanr
consider peace, and if so, will he indi
cate the terms. The war will continue
until terms of peace have been made
and accepted. General Miles has
landed his troops on Porto Rico, and
thtiprtant Spanish possesion
Iwill soon be ours.
it is a sad state of affairs when such
political mud slinging as is being in
dulged in by the Congressional aspi
rants is permitted. Indeed, if the rec
ords of these candidates are to be
judged by what each says of the otber,
a party who is not acquainted with
them, might be lead to think that
neither of them were worthy of the
high honors they seek. It is to be
hoped that the mud will settle before
they stump Marion county.-Dillon
Scovel, the correspondent of the
New York World, who slapped Geu.
Shafter's face at Santiago, right after
the ceremonies of raising the Amer
ican flag to take the place of the
Spanish flag, has gotten off with an
exceedingly light punishment. Gen.
Shafter had the power to have had
him shot, but that officer with pity
expelled the seeker for notoriety from
Cuba. If Scovel ever attempts to go
back to Cuba, the probability is that
he will be courtmartialed and shot.
The grand jurors of this county,
court after court, make complaints
about our county poor house, not
about the management, but about
the buildings. We hope the present
grand jury will make more than a
casual investigation of that institution
and recommend a sound, practical
plan of improvement. The superin
tendent does the best he can with
the means at his command, but if a
plan can be devised to put the institu
tion beyond the complaints of grand
jurors, we hope the present body will
discover it, and that the representa
tives in tbe General Assembly will
give the matter their serious atten
tio. The poor are with us, and
humanity demands they be taken care
of in a decent, comfortable manner,
because as a rule, those who unfortu
nately, are thrown upon the charity
of the county are unable to do phy
sical labor and they need kind and
wholesme attention; this they can
not get in buildings about to fall
down upon them.

The United States government in
its desire to acquire more territory:
not only stamps out a record of a cen
tury,but it is steering the ship of State
headforemost towards the rocks of
international complications. Alread
it is rumored that Germany has been
selected as the leader in this interna
tional trap set for the United States,
and it is a known fact that Germany
is collecting a large Ileet of warships
at Manila and the German Admiral is
in constat communnication with the
Spanish governor-general. There is a
grave suspicion that Uncle Sam will
be told by the Powers, so far shalt
thou go, but no farther." Our gov
ernment has not yet taken the Philli
pines and may never do so, although
every indication points to the taking
of the entire group, possibly with an
understanding that England be given
a slice. Suppose Spain, belore the
capture of the Philippines, should
make a treaty with Germany and
Austria, whereby she reliuquishes
these possessions to those two Pow
ers, would it not have a bad effect on
the results of Dewev's victory? We
know not, but we do believe that the
monarchial governments are not
going to sit idly by and leave Spain
at the mercy of a Republic. It, is our
opinion that whenever the United
States goes to that point which will
endanger the Spanish crown, Uncle
Sam will come into contact with a
surprise for every King or Emporer,
will look to his own crown to keep
his dominions from slipping from his

The Spanish-Aimierican War.
Editor THuE 'IES:
Admiral Dewey's naval victory in
Manila bar, coupled with the deC
struction of Cervera's fleet in the At
lantic ocean and the capture of the
city of Santiago de Cuba with its
twenty-five thousand defenders after
a great deal of desperate fighting on
both sides, is simply made gratifying
to us for the success of our arms and
creditable to the Spanish soldiers,
even though defending a bad cause.
These achievements are grand and
we believe will take their places in
the pages of our history as the most
complete and decisive as have ever
been recorded therein. (.ireat credit
is due our brave men, both officers
and privates engaged in these strug
gles, we must confess, but in all can
dor we must say that the men who
stood by and worked and died by
their guns are the men who won and
achieved these yictories. The men
that carry and work the guns are the
sons and ~sinew of all armies and are
the mainstay of nationalities, Amer
ican valor, coupled as it wvere with
bull-dog tenacity, backing a war
waged in the cause of freedom and
humanity, is proving too much for
Spanish treachery, oppression and
The deliveranee and freedom of the
people of the once beautiful and fer
tile but now devastated Island of
Cuba is fast drawing to a certainty,
and the hated and blood-stained flag
of Spain wvill soon be forever lowered
and will never again float over that
island to menace or make afraid
again the now unhappy but soon-to
be liberated Cubans.
Spain has made many conquests
and for mnany years has been the un
disputed possessor of all of her eon
quests, but by her cruel oppressions
and blood-thirsty tyrannies one after
another of her possessions have re
volted and today she fully realizes
that the lust one of her conquests
and possessions is fast slipping awvay
from her. Spain has been and still
is a bloody nation. Spain's past rec
ord has indeed been a cruel and
bloody record. History teaches that
Spain'has waged more wvars and in
these wvars shed more innonent blood
than any nation under the sun, not
even excepting the unreasonable, re
vengeful and blood-thirsty savages
in any part of the world. Spain,
though, fi a measure is p)aying now
in blood, and later on will pay in
treasure for the treacherous destruc
tion of our battleship Maine, and for
the cruel murder of our unsuspecting
countrymen who formed the crewv of
that battleship. Retributive justice
has overtaken these Spanish devils
incarnate and they have been made
to render more than "life for life and
blood for blood." Our government,
I dare say, wvill make the Spaniards
rue the day that emboldened them
to shed American blood, but for the
retribution of the blood of others
andh of the poor Cubans wve will have
to leave it in the hands of Him who
has satid., "Vengeance is mine, I will
The destr'uction of Spain's boasted

are not quite as invincible as their
pufed up vanity has led thenm to be

pgs" as cowardly and as awkward
as they hiave tried to have the rest
of the world believe. It is to be

Tile IVar POlcy Of 1lle Banks.
There were some $1,200,000,000
subscribed for the $200,000,000 of
war bonds offered by the Govern
ment, and the amount awarded was
given to small bidders in the main-it
brought out the stocking-money, as
it were. So that, if the banks had
not adopted a war policy of contrac
tion equal to the expansion caused by
calling this amount of money out of
its hiding places, there would have
been a full circulating medium for
awhile; but, no sooner than it became
apparent that the Government would
award as much of this loan to the
common people as possible and thaf
in consequence there would be a temo
porary influx of more money in to
the circulating medium of the coun
try, the national banks commenced a
s stematic contraction by retiringi
their circulation to an extent equal to
the infation thus occasioned. Hence,
the amount of national bank notes
now clamoring for redemption at the
Treasury is almost unprecedented
that too at a time when more money
is needed to carry on the operations
of the war and the commercial busi
ness of the country than would be
needed in times of peace. A money
stringency is always a calamity; but
a scarcity of money in times ut wzr
becomes a double hardship. And
right here looms up a tremendous
object lesson for the people to pon
der. It illustrates, as perhaps noth
ing else can, the utter folly and im
policy of intrusting one of the most
sacred as well as one of the most pow
erful and dangerous functions of gov
ernment to the hands of private cor
porations which think of themselves
and their unfair advantages first and
of the people last, if at all. Conduct
like this ought to make it very plaun
to the wayfaring muau that all money
should be issuel and controlled by
the government; that a function of
government which comes home to
every man, woman and child in this
grea't country of ours, is too sacred
and should be too jealously guarded
to have it abused and used to private
ends by a favored few, as it is now
and always has been under the na
tional banking laws which afflict and
plunder our people. By means of
this power they manage to absolutely
control and regulate the volume of
money in circulation; and they are
governed, in their regulation of it,
not by the needs and requirements
of the people at large, but solely by
the advantages to themselves a scarce
or a flush money-volume. It happens
that the money-owners and the banks
always want the supply of money
small, so that the demand for money
will be correspondinly large and the
rates of interest chargeable for its use
remunerative, while the people
always want just the the reverse; so
that under the present system (which
gives the regulation and control of the
whole monev volume into the hands
of those who want a scant volume in
circulation all the time) our govern
ment falls far short of that pet phrase
which we all love to quote: "A govern
ment of the people, for the people, by
the people." It more nearly approach
es a government for favorites-an op
pression of the people, by the corpo
rations for the corporations. Hence,
we have the anomaly of the national
bank redemption agency of the gov
ernment at Wasbington rushed be
yond almost anything known in his
tory at a time when its volume of
vork would seem to be reduced to
the minimum; for there is so much
need for money in the country at this
time to carry on the war as well as
its commercial business that it would
seem that no bank would want to cur
tail its circulation or retire any of its
currency. Perhaps that would be the
ase were not nearly $200,000,000 of
money coming out of its hiding
place to seek investment in govern
ment :3 per cent. bonds. Seeing,
therefore, that this coming out of the
stocking money would have the effect
of swelling the circulating medium
for a time, the banks (true to their
ancient tradition of looking out for
number one) are breaking thbeir neeks.
alost and falling over each other in
an almost unprecedented effort to re
tire enough of the present circulation
to of'set this $200,000,000, wvhich is
finding its way to the money market
of the contry from the chests, stock
ings, belts and other quaint and curi
ous hiding places in wvhich the saving
oor have held it.

"Our capture of Santiago after a
siege of twvo weeks will be set down
upon military records as an achieve
ment of extraordinary brilliancy. Gen
eral Shafter, wvho commanded during
the operations, is probably not a par
ticularly able man, and his selection
for such a distinguished duty doubt
less produced no little surprise among
bis colleagues of the army. Criti
cisms upon his leadership have been
many and ugly. But they came as a
rule from observers unfortified by
knowledge, and not in the business of
journalism for the health of the nation
and now they are forgotten. The
deed is done, and the victory is great.
"Two things, of course, reduced
the Spaniards the the state of moral
hopelessness that precedes rurrender.
The fit-st was the irresistible bravery
shown by the American army in their

of the same qualities by the Ameri
