The Greenville News and other
anti-dispensary newspapers seem
very impatient to get a declaration
from Goveror Ellerbe, as to his course
with reference to the dispensary, and
from day to day they are throwing
out hints of a deal made by the Gov
ernor to recommend local option. We
do not know whether there is any
ground to suspect that governor El
lerbe has changed his views about the
handling of the liquor problem, but
we have no idea that by word or act
has he ever given any man good res
son to believe that he will not stand
to the declarations made upon the
hustings, when he went before the
people asking for re-election. The
people endorsed him in spite of the
combinations and alliances made to
defeat him, and now that the battle is
won, to turn around and recommend
for the enactment into law, a measure
which was rejected by the voters in
the recent campaign would be absurd.
Tillman and Schumpert went from
county to county and tried to prove
that local option was the panacea for
all of their ills, but they would have it
not, and repudiated both of them and
their falacious doctrine.
We gave to Governor Ellerbe our
hearty support and we did so, upon
his manly stand for what he thought
was right without regard to political
consequences; had be been a trimmer
the prohibitionist would not have
given him oppoeition because he
would have, on the dead quiet, given
them to understand that he was with
them. No, he made the fight upon
the dispensary platform and on it he
must stand. The only thing for him
to do is to recommend such measures
as will improve the system, and use
every effort to make the law a step
towards prohibition, or rather temper
ance, for we do not believe prohibi
tion can be made practicable. These
newspapers that are endeavoring to
create the impression that Ellerbe
gave the local optionists a promise,
in order to get their votes are only
making a grand bluff, notwithstand
ing the fact that the Columbia State
did hint of such an understanding.
Ellerbe were he so disposed, cannot
after satisfying his political appetite
hand the dish over to his enemies,
and the enemies of the people who
stood by him, when the clouds of dis
aster were hovering very near. The
friends of the dispensary are in the
majority in the General Assembly
and while many of them are disposed
to strike out the laws harsh features,
they will, if it becomes necessary put
aside little differences and details and
to a man will stand by the law and
block any attempt to destroy it. The
interviews as published in Friday's
State from the Charleston delegation
is enough to open the eyes of the
opponents of barrooms in South Car
olina; The representatives from that
prohibition(?) city, where Mr. Feath
erstone, the prohibition candidate re
eeived 54 votes, and high license
Schumpert about 1200, but in the
second primary the high license peo
ple gave Featherstone their vote, are
beld in their sayings that they want
license and if they cannot get license,
so their friends can do "peezness"
wi4th open doors, then they want pro
hibition so their friends can do "peez
ness" behind closed doors.
It is our opinion that Governor
Ellerbe will endeavor to point out to
the General Assembly a way to en
force the dispensary law, nmore effect
ually than it is being done now, and
with less expense, but there will not
be any "local option" or high license
measure from him. The dispensary
must have a fair test, and then if it
is not what it should be, away with
Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian tube.
When this tube gets intiamed yon have a
rumbling sound or imnperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed deafness is the
result, and unless the infiamation can De
taken out and this tube restored to its nor
mal condition, hearing will be deetroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are caused~ by
eatarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed
condition of the mucons surfaca.
We will give one hundred dollars for any
case of deafness (caused by catarrhy that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.

The Democracy of New York is
committing the folly of going into
the campaign in divided columns.
Roosevelt the Republican nominee is
fresh from the war and flushed with
victory; his name is a household word
and besides his party is marching to
the polls in solid phalanx, while poor
old Democracy is split and quarrell
ing in the presence of the enemy. We
have no idea, under the circumstan
ces that Van Wyck the Democratic
nominee will stand a ghost of a
chance. A house divided must. fall
in New York as well as elsewhere.
The State Supreme Court has is
sued a writ which will prevent the
Democratic Executive Committee of
Berkeley county, from carrying out
the mandates of the State Committee.
This action is a dangerous exercise
of power that should not be vested
in the Courts, and if persisted in, our
primary system will be badly handi
capped; it will result in defeated can
didates running to the courts, to en
join committees from declaring the
wishes of the people. The General
Assembly should take notice of this
matter and enact some law which will
not permit the courts to become in
struments of destruction, at the in
stance of dissatisfied politicians. The
effect of the Berkeley case will be to
take the nomination of Sheriff out of
the hands of the Democratic voters,
and throw the election, into the gen
eral election for both Democrats and
Republicans to vote, leaving the De
mocracy of that county without a
nominee. A bad precedent has been
established by the Berkeleyites.
The exceedingly low price of cot
ton this season, should be a lesson,
not soon to be forgotten. Our farm
ers cannot make the staple at the
price, and pay their debts; some other
money crop must be found or disas
ter will be the result; as long as the
present conditions exist, the banks
will withhold their accommodations
and the farmers will be left to strug
gle on without aid. Some may argue
that the farmer will never get any
better off until he learns to keep out
of debt; this argutnent might do if
the farmer was not already in the
quagmire of debt, and what is needed
now is a way to get out. The ques
tion then is, whether or not there
should be a reduction of the cotton
acreage, and whether or not the fleecy
staple should be abandoned altogeth
er. A reduction of the acreage, re
duces the supply and, of course re
duces the means to obtain money.
The abandonment of cotton raising
cannot be, until some other money
crop can be found. The farmers
throughout the State and the cotton
belt should take advantage of this
years experience and endeavor to pro
The present depressing condition
is not alone felt by the farmer; the
merchant feels the yoke also, and it
is he at last, who must go to the
wall when the fai-mer fails to find
means to pay for his advances. It
therefore behooves the merchant to
lend every encouraging aid to the
farmer to extricate himself from the
destructive effects~ fast encroaching

Three Doctors mn Consultation.
From Benjamin Franklin.
"When you are sick, what you like best
is to be chosen for a medicine in the first
place; what experience tells you is best, to
be chosen in the second place; what reason
(i. e., Theory) says is best is to be chosen
in the last place. But if you can get Dr.
Inclination, Dr. Experience and Dr. Rea
son to hold a consultation together, they
will give you the best advice that tcan be
When you have a bad cold Dr. Iochina
tion would recommend Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy becanse it is pleasant and
safe to take. Dr. Experience would rec
ommend it because it never fails to effect a
speedy and permanent cure. Dr. Reason
would recommend it because it is prepared
on scientific principles, and acts on na
ture's plan in relieving the lungs, opening
the secretions and restoring the system to a
natural and healthy condition. For sale

Robbed the Grave.
A startling incident, of which Mr. John
Oliver of Philadelphia. was the subject, is
narrtted by him as follows: "I was in a
most dreadful condition. My skin was
almost yellow, eyes sunken, tongue coated,
pain continually in back and sides, no ap
petite-gradually growing weaker day by
day. Three physicians had given me up.
Fortunately. a friend advised trying Elec
tric Bitters; and to my great joy and sur
prise, the first bottie made a decided im
provement. I continned their use for three
weeks, and am now a well man. I know
they saved my life, and robbed the grave
of another victim," N'o one should fail to

The State Election and the Lesson it
The election held on Tuesday of last
week was, in a measure, a surprise to
many, but the result did not mate
rially differ from what the Headlight
prognosticated. We never had a mo
ment's doubt but that Governor El
lerbe would be re-elected, but knew
that the strong combinations against
him would reduce his majority. The
day before the second primary, in re
ply to an iuquiry, the editor of this
paper stated that, from what he could
gather, Ellerbe would go in by a ma
jority ranging from five to seven
There were six candidates opposed
to Governor Ellerbe, hailing from
every section of our State, and all
well presumed to be strong men.
With the single exception of Col.
Schumpert, they were very abusive
against the Governor, and centred
their fire upon him. Of course each
of these candidates had his friends
and workers, and after the State's
first primary, and the gubernatorial
candidates had been thinned down to
Ellerbe and Featherstone, those who
supported the losing candidates felt
that it was necessary to beat Ellerbe
to vindicate their course. It is true
that Col. Watson came out in a letter
endorsing Ellerbe, but we doubt if
he controlled a dozen votes, and only
published himself a political turnooat,
who, after denouncing Governor El
lerbe in the most abusive manner,
tried to ingratiate himself in his good
graces by dieting upon his own
words. Candidates can control vot
ers in their own interest, but when
they endeavor to turn them over to
some one else they will find them
selves badly mistaken.
But the reduced vote polled by
Governor Ellerbe was not intended
as a rebuke to his administration, but
a disapproval of the manner in which
the dispensary has been managed in
the past. Too much favoritism had
been shown the State constables, and
the people demanded that these offi
cers be held to strict account for their
aots the same as other private citi
zens, and not be made special pets of.
The pardoning of May and Buice,
after their conviction by an impartial
jury, lost Governor Ellerbe hundreds
of votes in the upper section of our
county as well as in Greenville, while
the cruel and unprovoked killing of
Mr. Turner by Newbold set the whole
county ablaze with indignation. In
Spartanburg county hundreds of
strong friends of the dispensary voted
for Featherstone simply to show their
disapproval of the manner in which
the dispensary has been managed,
and to put a quietus on this shooting
down of men for an offense, which, at
most, would only put them to the
chaingang for a short time.
The next Legislature will have to
overhaul the dispensary law, and put
a stop to even the suspicion of wrong
doing and hold constables to strict
account for their acts, or two years
hence the people will rise in their
power and wipe the whole system out
Taking all things into considera
tion, Governor Ellerbe made a splen
did race, and we doubt if' there is an
other man in the State who could
have been elected with such a com
bination of politicians and unfortu
nate circumstances against him. The
whole fire of the opposition was di
reted on Ellerbe, backed by the pul
pit and every man interested in the
tearing down of the dispensrry law
and the sale of liquors by private par
ties. But the majority of the voters
refused to be controlled against a
man whom they knew to be honest,
and who had done his duty faithfully
and fearlessly. Governor Ellerbe had
also to combat the hundreds of dis
appointed office-seekers, who failed
to receive appointments at his hands
to civil offices or in the army. But
the great mass of our voters respect
ed and honored Governor Ellerbe,
and refused to strike down and hu
miliate a good and pure man.
But during his next term the
many obstacles he had to encounter
will be removed-factional differ
ences have been allayed, and our
people are again working together in
peace and unity, and to Win. H. El
erbe, more than any other man, is
this happy result due. The war has
ended and there will be no scramble
over positions in the army, and most
of the appointments for State offices
have been filled. Therefore we pre
dict that Governor Ellerbe will retire
from the gubernatorial chair at the
expirtion of his second term, amid
the plaudits of the whole State, and
his official record will go down in his
tory as one of the cleanest in the an
nals of the Palmetto State. It would
have been a shameful outrage to
strike down as pure and honest a
man as Governor Ellerbe at the
clamor of ambitious politicians and
an unholy alliance between Prohibi
tionists and liquor men.
But one glorious result has en
sued: The people went to work and
cleaed the State House of those
who have been holding offce since
1890, and made an entirely new deal.
