Entered at the Post Office at Manning as
Senator McLaurin is being criti
cized for voting for the peace treaty
and his critics lay special stress upon
his having made a speech recently
which placed him among the opposi
tion. McLaurin's speech was against
expansion and before the outbreak
at Manila. Tbere is nothing in Mc
Laurin's action which places him in
an inconsistant position. He is still
opposed to expansion, and his vote to
ratify the treaty was thoroughly in
accord with the Democracy's leader,
William Jennings Bryan, who in an
open letter advised the ratification.
When the question of holding the
Philippines comes up, we are statis
fied McLaurin will by his voice and
vote, express the views of his people.
Many of his critics know nothing
about the subject, and some of them
have an idea, that because Tillman
voted against the treaty, McLaurin
went back upon his people by not
voting with Tillman. Their voting
differently is a matter of individual
opinion, there is no question of party
policy or State interest involved, and
if McLaurin viewed it to be the best
interests of the country at large to
relieve the administration from the
embarrassing position it was in, it
washis duty to cast his vote as he
did. It must be remembered that
while the Senate was divided on the
treaty question the Filipinos had rea
son to believe the people of this
country would not back up the gov
ernment and the longer the uncer
tainty continued, the more would the
insurgents continue their warfare.
We have not the slightest doubt, but
the delay in the ratitication of the
treaty encouraged those people to
open fire upon oui soldiers, and add
another bloody chapter to our his
tory. The people of this country
want to get the war stopped and re
turn to a settled condition, but the
desired result could not be obtained
as long as our Congress was holding
tbe country in doubt. Now that the
doubt has been removed by the rati
fication of the treaty, we look for
speedy peace, and in less than six
months many ofMcLaurin's critics
will be convinced of the wisdom of
his course. Our information is, that
even since McLaurin cast his vote,
his mail has increased with letters of
congratulation from all over the
country. In many towns and cities
joint letters signed by the business
community have been forwarded to
him and the wires were kept hot with
messages of joy.
McLaurin is in Washington at
tending to his business and making
a study of the people's interests, and
he does not care a rap what little
politicians say nor what shoe-string
brained newspaper critics do., Were
he a petty politician he would curry
favor with these elements to make
himself popular, but there is a great
differance between State craft and
petty politics. A statesman's acts
live in history, but the acts of a pol
itician are only in sight like a sky
rocket for the instant. The politi
cian comes into existence with much
pyrotechnic display and in a twink
ling goes off of the stage of action
without leaving an impression. The
Statesman, on the other hand, comes
on the stage of action and by study
and devotion he builds a monumen
tal record more lasting than stone,
and his brain-work is impressed up
on his country's future.
The indications are that our troops
are making tremendous headway to.
wards gaining the ascendancy over
the insurgent Filipinos on the Island
of Luzon in the Philippine archipel
ago. Our troops attacked and cap
tured the town of Caloocan last Fri
day, although it was supposed to be
Agunaldo's strongest point of resist
ance; an attack was made Saturday
upon Malabon, which will soon fall,
and Gen. Miller has been instructed
to demand the surrender of Iloilo,
and to take it by force, in case the
demand is not forthwith complied
with. But Iloilo is about 300 miles
distant from Manila and is not con
nected with it by cable or telegraph,
so that it has not been learned yet
how the demand for surrender was
received-or what has actually taken
place at that important point- But
it is asserted by those who claim to
Aguinaldo is about at the en a of his
resistance to American dominion
over the archipelago, unless some of
the powers intervene; and it is not
seriously feared that any power will
have the hardihood to take up the
cudgel against the American Repub
lic in behalf of the insurgents. Every
effort is being made to capture
Aguinaldo himself, for he is the head
and front of the whole insurrection;
with him captured and out of the
way, it is believed that the natives
would interpose very slight, if any
resistance, to American dominion
and c)ntrol. The dispatch from Gen.
Otis saturday is thought to indicate
that the end to the up-rising of the
Ph:.lipinos is near at hand; for the
opinion prevails in administration
circles now, and has prevailed ever
since the first attack made upon our
troops over there, that Aguinaldo
would not be able to maintain his in
fluence over his ignorant followers in
the face of successive reverses. He
has now sustained these successive
defeats, and every indication seems
to point to the fact that he is "in ex
tremis," and will never be able again
to muster around him, even if he is
not captured, sufficient forces to give
our troops any serious trouble from
now on. Our casualities so far have
been 292, all told; but only a few of
these were fatal. The enemy is not
armed in a way to inflict serious dam
age-many of the Filipinos have no
guns at all. They are, therefore,
pursuing a forlorn hope when they
aspire to make any headway against
an American army, which is not only
provided witb the best modern guns
and modern appliances of intelligent
field operations and constant com
munication, but also provided with
the best fighting "grit, skill and
markmanship" to be had anywhere in
the known world. They were as
helpless befcre the Spanish army as
the Spanise army was before the
American; then where does their
chance agaiast the American army
come in at all? They simply have no
chance-their doom is inevitable,
and the sooner they realize it and
take advantage of it, the better it will
be for them. Every life they lose
now is simply a tribute paid to folly.
It is believed by many of the best
informed membera of Congress now
that an extra session is almost as
sured beyond question, fojr it is not
known whether all of the appropria
tion bills will be passed at this ses
sion or not; but it is more than prob
able that the army re-organization
bill will fail to pass, and it is certain
that the '?resident will convene Con
gress in extra session, if that fails.
This certainty, or very general belief,
has given rise to a discussion of the
probable speakership of the next
House. It is asserted now that the
administration and the present Czar
of the Hcus'e (who have been at cross
purposes on the colonial expansion
policy) have signed a formal protocol,
by the terms of which it is agreed
that, if Mr. Reed will not oppose any
administration measure, the adminis
tration will not oppose his re -election.
If that be true, it it almost an as
sured fact that Thomas B. Reed, of
Maine, will succeed himself as Speak
er of the Fifty-Sixth Congres Both
sides are very glad of this amicable
adjustment; fcr Mr. Reed is not anx
ious for the administration's opposi
tion to his candidacy, and the admin
istration is not very anxious for Mr.
Reed's opposition to its pet policies;
so they have agreed "to bury the

never get the thing out of politics
Iuntil the people have had a fair
square chance to vote upon it. I in
troduced a bill in the Senate which
caused some surprise, but if it pas
se it is my sincere judgment that
ithe dispensary will be the better for
it. By my bill we will get clear of
certain cities which have never re
spected the law and where it has
been impossible to enforce, and it
will leave the rest of the State to en
joy its benefits without all of this
strife and bitterness. I think the
bill is fair and will meet the approval
of the people. The following is the
text of the bill:
Section 1. That whenever one-third of,
the registered voters of any counity shall
petition, in writing, to the county com
wvissionie's of such county for an election
to submit to the voters thereof the question
cf "Dispensary," "High License" or "Pro
hibition," and the petition, together with
the names of the petitioners. has been pub
lished at least once a week for thr-e
weeks in some newspaper published
in said county, the governor, upon
the request of the said county comUitesion -
ers, shall order an election within forty
days thereafter, at which the queition of
dispensary, high license, or prohibition
shall be sobmitted. If no one proposition
shall obtain a majority of the votes cast, a
second election shall be heldI two weeks
from the day of the first election, at which
two propositions receiving the highest
number of votes at the first election shall be
submitted. It shall be the duty of the gov
ernor, upon the request of the county com
missioners, to appoint three commissioners
of election, one of whom shall favor the
dispensary, one h'gh license and one pro
hibition, and the said commissioners shall
conduct the elections in the same manner
as other general elections are conducted,
except that the managers of election shall
represent the questions at issue, and re
ceive no cornpensation for their services.
Sec. 2. In the ovent that any county. by
such election, shall declare for dispensary,
such county shall continue under the State
Sec. 3. In the event that any county, by
such election, shall declare for prohibition,
no, liquors, wines or beer shall be sold,
and prohibition shall prevail in such
county, and all dispensaries therein shall
be closed within thirty days.
Sec. 4. In the event that any county, by
such election, shall declare in favor of high
license, the county commIssioners are here
by authorized and directed to issue license
for the sale of liqucrs in incorporated
towns and cities of said county, but not
elsewhere. All applicants for license for
the sale of liquors shall be men of good
moral character and sober habits, and be
recommended by at least twenty freehold
voters of the city or town wherein it is pro
posed to do business. Provided, If there
be less than thirty qualified voters within
such incorporated town, then two-thirds
thereof will be sufficient. The county
ommissioners are hereby authorized and
required to take bonds from all licensees
in the sum of five thousand dollars for the
observance of all laws and restrictions re
quired by the Constitution and laws of the
State, and such other rules and regulations
as may be prescribed by the county com
misioners. If any licensee shall violate
any of the conditions of his bond, it shall
be forfeited, his license revoked, and no
license shall thereafter be granted to him.
No license shall be granted tor a less sum
than two thousand dollars per annum, nor
for a longer period than one year, to be
paid in advance. The board of county
commissioners shall in their discretion
limit the number of licenses to be granted.
It shall be the duty of the county
commissionerS to establish such rules as
they may deem proper to guar
antee the purity of all liquors
offered for sale, and are hereby authorized
to expend the necessary funds from license
fees to secure that end by chemical analy
si or otherwise. It shall be the duty of
the sheriff, his deputies, the magistrates
and their constables, and all city and town
officil, to see to the enforcement of the
law jn respect to the sale of liquors, and if
they fail to properly enforce the law, the
county commissioners may use so much
of the license fee as may be necessary for
a rigid enforcement thereof. That after
the payment of the necessary expansas by
the county commissioners herein provided
for, the said county commissioners shall
promptly pay over to the county treasurer
one-half of the license fees hereinbefore
provided for, and pay over the other half
thereof to the proper authorities of the
cities and towns in which tthe sale of liquors

shall be held under the provisions of this
act within two years from the previous

consistent with this act are hereby re
On Saturday I addressed the Sen
ate in support of the measure, as
Senator Appelt said that as it had been
given out that he had changed his opinion
on this question lately, he had been told
that this change would be his political
funeral knell. He had a right to his opin
ions; he could not be bullied by a threat;
he had received his commission from the
people of Clarendoni County, and if his
people disapproved of his action let them
speak; his commission was- theirs.
He continued; I am an advocate and a
supporter of the dispensary system anei I
am anxious to have that system operated
with less friction and with le-ss turmoil,
and especially am I anxious to eliminate
the s-'oject from our political discussions;
because under existing conditions, ques
tions of greater importance are thrust
aside to give way to the sole question of
The dispensary law, when first enacted,
was experimental and necessarily erude in
its make-up. As a consequence it has
been amended from time to time. My bill
is simply what might be termed an amend
ment in the shape of an exception.
It cannot be denied that there arc sec
tions of this State where the dispensary
law is not satisfactory to a large element of
citizens, and who can say how much of the
dissatisfaction arises from an idea that it
is a law being thrust upon these citizen.
against their will? Their opposition is
based upon the principle of being governed
without their consent.
The failure of such people to heartily co
operate with us in the support and enforce
ment of the present law is a friction-a broko
en cog wheel-which retards and defects
the complete success of the beat lignor reg
ulation law ever enacted for the govern
ment of the people of this Statte.
As long as this friction exists in any part
of the Staite the whole system will be sunb
ected to a constant fire of discussion; its
shortcomings will be magnified by its op.
ponents, and it will inevitably suffer from
being kept continually in politics. I
want it rid of politics; the people are tired
of its being in politics; remove it from
those sections of the State w'here it does
ot seen tonsit the neonle.
Let the people of the EAst majority of
the co inties exnj is in settled peace and
quiet, the go'o.I effects brought about by
this modern solutio-i of a vexed question.
It may be said the people throughout the
State should be forced to support this law
as they do any other law. In my judg.
encti, based upon pa-t experience, this
cannut be doire. No law can be succesr.

sary law in CharLatun With it large .u
stabulary f.rce they failed. With a metro
politan pol.ee force they failed. With nu.
!oeroue beer privileges and even whole.
sale privileges they failed. Hence it does
seem to me fr11 this t xperience it must be
admitted the dispensary law has not and
cannot be enforced in some counties. As
I said the other day the evil of this failure
to enforce the law will spread and perme
ate other localities as well is hinder the en.
forcement of other laws. If a juror can
disregard his duty and his oath in a dis
pensary case, will Ito not likely do so in
other cases, and justify his conduct with
the reflection that he does not think the
law a wise one?
What, then, are we to do? Shall we rid
the dispensary law of these counties where
the enforcement is impossible, and thus
have a settled condition for the government
of those counties whose people give it their
moral support, and which will insure its
complete success? Or shall we blindly
hold on to them until they drag the insti
tutlon into disrepute?
It may be argued that we must have a
general law applicable to the entire State.
One of the most beneficial laws ever en
acted in this State is the fence law, and yet
we see portions of the State exempted from
its operations, Why? Because the stock
law is not suited to certain sections. Look
through the statutes and you will find cer
tain counties exempted fiomn many general
laws, merely upon the request of their Rep
resentatives. But is this dispensary law
a general law, with no exceptions? By no
means. If the law is general in terms the
administration of it is far from general. In
my own town I can not buy liquors or beer
outside of the dispensary, but here in Co
lumbia, under the shadow of the State
House, private individuals import beer,
bottle it and haul it through the streets for
sale under a special privilege. Is that a
general law? This is not "equal rights to
all and special privileges to none," but it is
special privileges to some and equal rights
These special privileges, in my opinion,
are not warranted by law, and I believe
they are wrong; then again, when rou go
to Charleston, not only do you find these
special privileges. but you can get liquor at
your hotel-a speoial privilege not enjoyed
by your country inns, nor by the vast ma
jority of hotels in the State.
I believe that every one of these privi
leges are illegal, not only so, but they are a
blight to the dispensary law. Without im
pugning the motives of those who have
claimed the legal right to grant these privi
leges, and put it on the ground "that pecu
liar conditions demanded the exercise of
their right," let nao say that this proves that
our general dispensary law is in many re
spects not suited for certain places. Let
the people of those counties say if they
need a change, and if so what system, au
thorized by the fundamental law, best suits
But I can go further and say the admin
istration of the law in some counties is a
reproach to the plan.
TIhis wholesale privilege to sell liquors at
wholesale in one community was never
contemplated by the advocates of the dis
pensary law, and yet my information is
that such a privilege has been obtained by
a concern in Charleston. Why was it
granted? Was it politics or what was it?
Free the law and its advocates of all priv
ileges and of all co(unties where the con
ditions cf the people are averse to the up
holding of this law, and it will soon be re
moved from politics. It will be a blessing
to the people and becmie respected and
fixed as any law upon the statute books.
Let us do this, and by doing so we stand
upon the bed rock of Deuocracy, by per.
mitting the people to rule themselves. Give
them home rule and local self-government;
let them, if they so desire, say at the ballot
box if they are disatisfied with the dispen
sary law, and if so, what constitutional
system is best suited to them.
This bill may be improved in some of
its details, but I believe the general scope
will prove satisfactory.

of the State beiag deprived of a revenue,
now going into the pockets of those who
defy the law, backed up by the sentiment
of their communities, a revenue will come
into the treasury and our laws upheld.
In this bill submitted is the machinery
for carrying such a law into effect. I am
not wedded to its details, and invite such
amendments as will improve it. I think the
the bill fair and reanianable.
But atter all, under the constitution those
taking advantage of this bill must observe
most of the laws governing the dispensary
as to opening, closing, drinking on the
premises, etc. and about the only differ
erenceti are as to who shall sell, where they
may buy and the price charged. But un
der license those who feel the law has in
aded their liberties will feel that they are
free from the offending law, while the dis
pensary will, in fact, be free of an elephant
which has been on its hands since the en
actment of the law.
