PROHIBITION OR LICENSE.
The Columbia State a known
hater of the dispensary law is
advocating Colonel Hoyt's can
didacv for Governor, because it
thinks, and it may have the Col
c-1e1's word for it, that Colonel
He'yt is willing to have a license
system if he cannot get prohibi
tion. In other words the dispen
sary system must go, even if the
Prohibitionists must make an
alliance with the old time bar
keepers to break it down. Now
we know sorhe Prohibitionists
who do not take stock in such
doctrine, and when they hear an
appeal to them to help break up
the dispensary, even if they
must, to accomplIsh such a re
sult, return to the license sys
tem they say "get thee behind
me Satan." The class of Prohi
bitionists we refer to are, those
who want prohibition. pure and
simple-they do not want the
State to establish depots of hy
pocrisy by converting the pres
ent dispensaries into places
where the law will say, liquor
shall be sold, providing the man
wanting the stuff will say he
wants it for medicinal, mechani
cal and sacramental uses, as is
laid down in the platform written
by Colonel Hoyt, and adopted by
the Prohibition faction, and by
which faction he was "suggest
ed" in a public convention.
The "State," although a bitter
and an unrelenting foe of Tillman
and the faction he was the recog
nized head, had the reputation
of being fair-it would fight
openly, but our recent experience
with that journal convinces us
that it will resort to any means
to accomplish the destruction of
the dispensary. The "State"
wants a return of the barroom
system, it never did favor prohi
bition until now, and only since
the Prohibitionists have sug
gested a candidate for governor,
according to the "State" who
will, if he cannot get prohibition,
give "high license." Has the
"State" any ground for this
belief? The South Carolina
Baptist, of which Rev. J. W.
Perry, who is well known to us,
is an editor, says: "Already at
tacks are being made on Col'or.
Hoyt. It is said that lie is not a
Prohibitionists at heart and that
his past record proves this. We
know that he was a high license
man for a number of years. Some
of the stiffest arguments we have
ever had in the public press,
were with him along this line."
Now there you are, a Baptist
paper, and Colonel Hoyt a prom
inent Baptist, edited by men
known to our readers, say that
the "Prohibitionists" have put
forward as their standard bearer
a man whom these Baptist edi
tors know "was a high license"
man. Mind, the attempt is be
ing made to work the church
members into the belief that a
religious principle is involved
and to carry forward a '-religious
principle" a man is put forward
to carry the banner, whose
church brethren say '"he was a
high license man." Do our red
ers remember Rev. J. W. Perry,
he was the much esteemed pas
tor of the Manning Baptist
church a number of years ago,
and a gentleman who scorned
hypocrisy. The paper who is
highly honored by having him
as one of its editors. says: Col.
Hoyt, the candidate for gover
nor on the Prohibition platform
is being attack because "it is
said that he is not a Prohibition
ist at heart and that his past re
cord proves this:" And then it
does not stop there, but makes
this- declaration. "-We know
that he was a high license man
for a number of yea--s." If the
editors of the South Carolina
Baptist can be relied upon as
being truthful, what becomes of
that beautiful " principle" which
is so much involved, that church
members are being urged to come
to its rescue.
The Columbia State doesn't
seen to fancy the candor of the
"-South Carolina Baptist," be
cause it knows that such a dec
laration about Colonel Hoyt who
from that source. might cause a
great many sincere "Prohibi
tionists- to wonder if Colonel
Hoyt is elected,willthere be pro
hibition or license. The State
of the 16th, inst., cries out in a
hush-you'll-spoil-things alarm, as
follows: "The South Carolina
Baptist, published at Greenwood,
may be a prohibition paper and
a well-wisher of Colonel Hoyt,
and as a denominational paper it
may be constrained to make nom
inal opposition to the dispensary:
but our reading of an editorial in
its issue of last Wednesday in
elines us to believe that while
ewhracing the Colonel it is also
seeking to smite him under the
No, Columbia State., the views
expressed in the South Carolina
Baptist are only confirmatory
of what you are attempting to
make your anti-dispensary read
ers believe in order to pull votes
for Colonel Hoyt. "Our reading
of an editorial" in the State, con
inces us, that paper wouldhave
its anti-dispensary readers to be
lieve the thing is already tixed,
should Colonel Hoyt be elected,
lie will join forces to bring about
license to destroy the dispensary
if he cannot have prohibition.
But we doubt if that Gonzales
wink will work this time, be
c-ause, we have a faint recollec
tion of having heard of a fairy
tale like that once before, and
when Gonzales failed to deliver
the goods he had to say some
thing. so he wrote columns of
abuse on the late Governor El
lerbe. We suppose he will wink

There is another matter we wish
