IS CLARENDON FOR PROHIBITION?
Under the call of the county chair
man as required by the constitution of
the Democratic party, the clubs wi" e
semble on Saturday, 28th inst., at ,.ieir
respective places of meeting for the
purpose of sending delegates to the
county convention which assembles at
the court house on Monday. 7th day of
May. This convention will proceed to
elect a county chairman, a member of
the State Democratic committee and
delegates to the State convention, which
assembles in Columbia on the 16th day
of May for the purpose of electing a
State chairman and delegates to the
national convention which meets at
Kansas City on the 4th day of July.
At present we know of no open fight
being made on any particular issue, but
we believe that there is a fight going
on by the way of a still hunt. We be
lieve the Prohibition element is quietly
taking advantage of the political calm
to capture the party organization,
that element of the party relying on
the people's indifference more than on
the numbers in their own ranks, and if
they can succeed in capturing the par
ty's machinery they hope thereby to
get an advantage.
Now, if the people of Clarendon are
ready to try the prohibition experiment
there is no use in hiding about it-they
can come out square and make the is
sue. It is a question of opinion solely;
as far as we are concerned we do not
believe prohibition at all practicable,
t.nd were such a law enacted it would
amount to very little less than a farce.
The country would have liquor flowing
in every by-path and drunkenness would
increase, and besides, we would not
only put upon our statute books a law
which amounts to naught'as far as its
practicability is concerned, but we
bring about a condition which cuts off
our revenue and thereby increases
taxes. The people are now groaning
under the heavy yoke of taxation and
our Representatives are faithfully try
ing to lighten this burden. How can
they do so if the people cut off a very
important portion of the revenue?
Does it need any calcuktion to show
the people where the revenue is cut off
and the expense of running the govern
ment must go on that an increase in
the tax levy is bound to be made to
meet this expense? If prohibition
would decrease the expenses of the
goverrment, then there might be some
reasoning in favor of cutting off reve
nue, but we do not believe it will de
crease the expenses of the government
one cent, and such a law may make an
increase in the expenditures without
accomplishing the results hoped for by
men who are sincerely working for pro
If the democracy of Clarendon is for
prohibition, we know of no better way
of indicating such a view than at the
coming convention - make the issue.
square in the election of a county
chairman. The county chairman should
by all means represent the wishes of
the majority on any public question.
We donot believe in any "shilly-shally"
policy, and if there is to be a contest
on the question of Prohibition or Dis
pensary let every delegate enter the
convention representing the wishes of a
majority of his club and not himself.
We have made.a study of the views
of the Democrats of this county and un
less we are wofully mistaken, it is our
opinion that at least 80 per cent of the
voters favor a continuance of the dis
pensary system-they are satisfied the
system has dorne good and is continuing
to do so, and -they are not yet ready to
plunge the country in a condition of
chaos, notwithstanding the sophistries
of some good men whose zeal has
warped their judgment on this question,
and when the issue is made, whether in
tne county convention or in the pri
mary, the majority holding such views
will vote against prohibition.
If, in the coming county convention
there is an issue made on the questions
of Prohibition and Dispensary, do not
allow the personal popularity of indi
viduals to becloud the issue. Vote for
the issue you believe to be the wishes
of the club you represent, and not for
a man or set of men. To illustrate; if
a man is nominated for county chair
man, and he favors the continuenice of
the dispensary system, matters not
how much you like him personally, vote
against him if you are representing a
club, a majority of the members of
which are for prohibition: if you do
not, you are misrepresenting the wish
es of your constituents and you have
abused the confidence reposed in you.
Then on the other hand, if your clubs
favor the dispensairy system, it :s your
duty, and you owe it to the people who
have entrusted you to represent them,
to vote against a man for county chair
man who is for Prohibition.
POLITICAL CROOES DOWNED!
Those who have kept posted on the
trend of political events must be struck
with the fight made on United States
Senator Morgan of Alabama, and its
results. Politicians for severa.! years
past conspired to bring about -the de
feat of Morgan of Alabama; they went
at it systematically and away ahead of
his election. The newspapers opposed
to him endeavored to make his people
believe that he had gone back on the
Democratic party, that he was hand-in
glove with the McKinley administra
tion. They picked out their most pop
him, and it was a fight to the finish..
These two men went before the people
of Alabama, Morgan handicapped by
the methods of his enemies to defeat
him while he was at his post in Wash
ington, and Johnston with the advan
tage of the politicians, and some great
newspapers to help his cause. At first
it looked as if Morgan might as well'
give up the fight, the People were
against him-they had been Fchooled!
to believe that his independent, course
in the Senate was treaebery to lis
party, that he had betrayed them to
the enemy. and that he had proven ip
worthy the trust reposed in him.
Senator Morian was a man for the
emergency. and when he saw that his
oqken, had sutcceeded in planting
the .aed of distrust against him, he
went to the people and in the face of
his accusers unfolded his record, and
there put to shame those who had so
persistantly misrepresented him. Did
the people of Alabama turn from Mor
gan? No! When his record was open
ed up, they at once saw that their Mor
gan in the United States Senate, was
not a mere automaton to be manipula
ted at the will of a leader, but that he
was a man with a vigorous brain, and
did his own thinking, and that he had
a sufficient amount of will power to do
his own acting. The result was that
Johnston was badly defeated in his
home county, and Morgan carrying
every county in the State.
Keep this case in mind as we may
have a similar experience in South
Carolina. The politicians and certain
newspapers have been working the
Alabama plan on McLaurin, and while
he is in Washington attending to his
work they have things their own way,
but wait, McLaurin like Morgan will
get a chance at the people, then things
will look different.

brave General Burnham of Machias, Me.. when
the doctors said she could not live till morning,"
writes Mrs. S. HI. Lincoln, who attended her
that fearful night. "All thought she miust soon
die from pneumonia. but she begged for Dr.
Eing's New Discovery, saying it had miore than
nce saved her life, and had cured her of con
sumption. After three small doses she slept
easily all night, and its further use completely
cured her." This marvelous medicine is guar

A MOST WONDERFUL CUIE.
A Grand Old Lady Gives Her Experience.
Mrs. Thankful Orilla Hurd lives in the beautiful village of Brighton,
Livingston Co., Mich. This venerable and highly respected lady was born in
the year I812, the year of the great war, in Hebron, Washington Co., New
York. She came to Michigan in 1840, the year of "Tippecanoe and Tyler
too." All her faculties are excellently preserved, and possessing a very re
tentive memory, -her mind is full of interesting reminiscences of her early
life, of the early days of the State of Michigan and the interesting and re
markable people she has met, and the stirring events of which she was a wit
ness. But nothing in her varied and manifold recollections are more mar
velous and worthy of attention than are her experiences in the use of
JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA. Mrs. Hurd inherited a tendency and pre
disposition to scrofula, that terribly destructive blood taint which has cursed
and is cursing the lives of thousands and marking thousands more as vie
tims of the death angel. Transmitted from generation to generation, It is
found in neary every family in one form or another. It may make its ap
pearance in dreadful running sores, in unsightly swellings In the neck or
goitre, or in eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, It
may be known as catarrh in the head, or developing In the lungs It may be,
and often Is, the prime cause or consumption.
Speaking of her case, Mrs. Hurd says: "I was troubled for many years
with a bad skin disease. My arms and limbs would break out In a mass of
sores, discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and became very
unsightly in appearance. My body was covered with scrofulous eruptions..
My eyes were aLro greatly inflamed and weakened, and they pained mie very
much. My blood was im a very bad condition and my head ached severely
at frequent intervals, and I had no appetite. I had sores also In my ears. I
was in a miserable condition, I had tried every remedy that had been recom
mended, and doctor after doctor had failed. One of the -best physicianz in
the state told me I must die of scrofulous consumption, as Internal abcesses
were beginning to form. I at length was told of Dr. Johnston, of Detroit, and
his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried a bottle, more as an experiment than any
thing else, as I had no faith in It, and greatly to my agreeable surprise, I
began to grow better. You can be sure I kept on taking it. I took a great
many bottles. But I steadily improved until I became entirely well. All the
sores healed up, all the bad symptoms disappeared. I gained perfect health.
and I have never been troubled .with scrofula since. Of course an old lady
of 83 years is not a young woman, but I have had remarkably good health
since then, and I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA Is the
greatest blood purifier and the best medicine in the wide world, both for
scrofula and as a spring medicine." This remarkably interesting old lady did
not 1ok to be more than sixty, and she repeated several times, "I believe my
life was saved by JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA."
