ADLAI E. STEVENSON
The Prohibitionists are assum
ing "special privileges." They
violate the constitution of the
Democratic party by making fac
tional nominations; their nomi
nees are permitted to participate
in the party primary. because
they sign an oath that they are
not the nominees of a faction,
notwithstanding the notorious
fact glaringly exists that these
nominees are the creatures of a
public convention, and an organ
ization endowed with all of the
paraphernalia of a political par

did not have the moral courage
to make a positive declaration.
This committee is composed of
gentlemen. a number of whom
are candidates for oflice, and
they were afraid that if they had
placed a positive construction on
the constitution as they should
have, some votes would have
oeen lost to theia personally:
such weak-kneed candidates
will not even get the vote of the
element they catered to fa sor no

The Prohibitionists are not
content with presuming upon the
weakness of the State Demo
cratic committee with regard to
factional nominations, "publicly
or privately suggested," but they
meetings provided by the commit
tee, and they are also holding
independent meetings. We un
derstand that it is the purpose of
the Prohibition party, to get up
picnics and at these picnics the
people are to furnish the ex
pense of the eatables, while im
ported speakers are to furnish
the chin music.
There is nothing in the con
stitution of the party prohibiting
these independent rieetings, but
the fact of meetings being ar
ranged by the county and State
executive committees, carries
with it the presumption, that any
other political mieetings are ir
regular, and calculated to create
confusion. The disregard for
the party constitution in one
particular brings about a disre
gard in other particulars, until
eventually the constitution will
not be worth the paper it is writ
ten upon and, our primary sys
tem will become a farce. Why
have a primary within the par-ty,
and permit nominating conven
tions too? Why have a sched
ule of meetings and permit inde
The importation of speakers is
a new feature to be considered,
by our people-they are not ac
customed to such, and it smacks
considerably of the missionary
idea. In our opinion, the free
and intelligent white men will
not take kindly to the idea of
having a strangers coming
among them to teach them how
they shall vote upon political
issues, that was all right in r-ad
ical days,when we were after the
negroes. The main issue in
South Car-olina politics at this
time is: Whether the State shall
continue its dispensaries for the
sale of liquor, as it is doing now,
or shall it, under the guise of
-prohibition, continue to keep the
dispensaries open to r-estrict
the sale of liquor to medicinal,
mechanical and sacramnental pur
pensaries are to continue-the
prohibition platform upon which
Colonel Hoyt has been nominat
ed as a candidate, demands
"THAT AUTHORITY BE GIVEN BY
THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY FOR
THE STATE TO SELL ALCOHOLIC
LIQUORS FOR ONLY MEDICINAL,
'MECHANICAL AND SACRAMENTAL
We quote the exact language
of the prohibition platform, so
that those who are 01)pOsed to
the State selling liquor. Ca. see
that the so-called Prohibition
ists are not asking in their plat
form that the State shall stop
selling liquor, but onl the con
trary, they ask in that platform
that the State SHALL SELL L
QUOR. Where is the prohibi
tion? Where is the religious
principle? Can a religious prin
ciple be compromised? Men have
suffered martyrdom for a relig
ious principle. No, the Prohibi
tion platform is not prohibition
The religious principle which
is being prated about, finds no
place upon the platform adopted
by the prohibition party. An
issue which is holy, and involves
a religious principle, cannot be
compromised. In our opinion
this prohibition (f) platform is
draped with sancity in order
to deceive the piously in
clined, and to give the politi
cians an entre into the churches
to work their political bunco
name: that by assuming an air
of holiness, it will bring to their
aid nany preachers who only
want an excuse to dabble into
politics, and when they do en
trap one of these kind of preach
ers. it will take but little obser
Svation to tind that this preacher
becomes a very slick politician,
and will resort to means that an
ordinary politician would scorn.
If there is a dark lantern meet
ing any where to work up a pol
itical conspiracy, an investiga
tion will prove that this preacher
politician is there, aiding and
abetting, and in the thick
est of the plot. He is used
by the office-seeking politician,
because he is a vote-getter, and
because he can enter places where
the ordinary politician cannot.
The white men of South Caro
lina are free and independent
thinkers. and we believe they are
as well informed on the issues of
the day as any politician, wheth
er he be a preacher or a layman;
therefore, the platform adopted
by the Prohibition p a r t y
stands for itself, and all the
speeches of imported speakers,
or local politicians cannot ob
scure the meaning. The white
voter has made up his mind on
the "liquor question," and when
the time comes to cast his vote, he
will vote as his best judgment
dictates. The white voter has
intelligence enough to distin
guish between genuine prohibi
tion and sham prohibition. He
is able to decide whether or not

tionize a system which is now
beginning to work satisfactory,
for an experiment which has
failed wherever tried. He knows
that to restrict the sale of liquor
as demanded in the Prohibition
platform, is an impossibility, and
is calculated to make hypocrites
and liars of men who use liquor.
He knows that if the Prohibition
party succeed, it will strike down
a large portion of the govern
ment's income, and will cause an
increase in our taxes.
The free and independent
voter does not want his preacher
to dabble in politics because he
knows that it is not calculated to
increase the influence of that
preacher; such a voter will re
sent the importation of strangers
to teach people how they shall
vote, and he will stand upon his
God-given right to exercise his
own judgment in public matters,
regardless of his preacher or
If the Prohibition party want
their principles promulgated,
they have been permitted to put
candidates into the field, provided
they sign the pledge required by
the constitution, and those can
dates can make speeches as long
as they can find people to listen,

men by enlisting the services of

A WORD OF CAUTION.
It is a known rule of this news
paper to let every candidate for
a county office take care of him
self, but when it comes to can
didates for the Legislature, Con
gress or State offices, we are un
der no promise to be neutral.
We therefore desire to direct
attention to one matter which
we regard of vital importance to
every voter in Clarendon county.
In the selection of representa
tives, the fact should not be 1st
sight of, that there is no Sena
tor to be voted for at this elec
tion, that oticeor holds -over for
two years more, and the voters
should be careful in their selee
tion of members of the Lower
House, lest they send to Colum
bia, representatives who will not
work in harmony. To make it
plain: Suppose at this election
the people should elect one rep
resentative who will work at
cross purposes with the Senator,
the work of the delegation would
be blocked, and as far as the
county is concerned, it would be
better off without any represen
tation at all. We hope the peo
ple in selecting their representa
tives will think of this seriously.
It will be throwing away time to
send to Columbia to make your
laws, men who are at variance
with each other. If a measure
for the benefit of Clarendon's
taxpayers starts in the lower
House, and the Senator does not
wish it to pass, all that he has
to do, is to shelve it. or kill it
outright, for when a matter af
fecting a county is opposed by
the Senator of that county, the
measure will not be pressed by
the other Senators. If a meas
ure starts in the Senate, and gets
over to the House, any onemem
ber of the delegation can ask
that the measure be "passed
over" in order that he might look
into it, and if the other members
of the delegation insist on its
being acted upon, all the ob
structing member has to do, is,
to claim that it is purely a "lo
cal measure," and he has not sat
isfied himself that it is a proper
measure: the result is, the meas
ure is pigeon-holed.
Our readers will therefore un
derstand the importance of elect
ing men who will wor-k in hiar
mony: a delegation in the
legislature that does not work
together cannot accomplish any
thing for their people. The
Senator of this county, has start
ed on a policy to reduce taxation,
and at the last session there was
a reduction of one mill, now his
object is not yet fully accom
plished: because, it is his pur
pose to reduce the tax levy two
mills more by the time his term
of office expires: to accomplish
this result his colleagues must
be men who will help him, and
if the voters will select such,
they will reap the benefit of a
reduction of their taxes.
After the present Senator's
euhas expired the people can
then afford to make a bran new
deal if they see fit, but as long
as conditions are as now, they
would simply be committing
stupid folly, to send any man to
Columbia who is not friendly
with, and is out of sympathy
with the Senator. This is not
intended as dictation, but an ap
peal to common, practical, bus
THE PAST FORGIVEN.
The exposure of Col. Hoyt's
position on the liquor question
by Rev. G. W. Gardner, one of
the editors of the South Carolina
Baptist, and which was repro
duced in these columns, has stir
red up a small-sized r-ow among
the Baptist brethren. Rev-. W.
W. Keys, in the defense of Col.
Hoyt, assumes r-esponsibility for
a high license editorial which
appeared in the Baptist Courier,
but Brother Gardner comes back
at Brother Keys and asser-ts that
he was not alluding to one edi
torial, but a series of editorials,
and he does not r-etract in the
slightest, but on the contrary,
he reiterates Col. Hoyt's position
on the liquor question. In our
editorial comment we alluded to
Rev. J. W. Perry because his
name appears as one of the edi
tors of the South Carolina Bap
tist, and because he is known to
our readers. And now comes
Brother- Perry-x with his v-oice
raised in behalf of Col. Hoyt in
the following card:
A WORD OF ExPLANATION.
Some days ago a friend sent me a
clipping from THE MANNING~ TIMES
containing an editorial, in which the
editor- was sparring with the Columbia
State about Col. Hofyt and his icandidacy
for Governor. The gist of the article
was that The State. to qjuote its own
words, was " advocating Col. Hoyt's
candidacy for- Governor because it
thinks, and it mayv have the c-olonel's
word for it. that (ol. Hoyt is willing to
have a license systeml if he cannot get
proibition." And the article goes on
to say that Col. Hoyt has been an advo
ate'of high license in the past, and
quotes this paper to prove the state
menCt, and mentions the fact that this
sribe. wvho is well known to the people
The South Carolina Baptist. The use
of my name demands a word of explana
tion, inasmuch as it is an indirect ap
peal to my friends in Clarendon to
ignore Col. Hoyt at the coming primary
The article in this paper was written
by Dr. Gardner, not by me. I have
n'ever had any controversy with Col.
Hoyt on the question of high license, or
on any other phase of the liquor prob
lem. Dr. Gardner has explained his
reasons for so writing, as can be seen in
the paper of June 20th. But whatever
views Col. Hoyt may have held in the
past. he now declares himself to he a
good Prohibitionist. and as such. I
shall give him my support. and liope
my friends in Clarendon will do the
(Si -n .T. W. PmnY. I
llro. Perry does not dispute the
fact that Col. Hoyt at one time
advocated "high license," as al
leged by Brother Gardner, he
only says he did not write the
article charging Brother Hoyt,
and then goes on to say, "But
whatever views Col. Hoyt iay
have held in the past, he now
declares himself to be a good
Prohibitionist. and as such I
shall give him my support." But
Col. Hoyt, in his speech in Man
ning, disputed Brother Gardner,
editor of The South Carolina
Baptist, and declared that he
never had advocated license.
Now which of these gentlemen
is correct, Rev. G. V. Gardner,
who asserts that Col. Hoyt did
advocate license, or Rev. W. W.
Keys, who assumes responsibil
ity for one certain "license" edito
rial, or Col. Hoyt, who is run
ning as a candidate for an oflce?
Somebody is wrong, sure. If
Col. Hoyt is wrong, is he the
"good Prohibitionist" he pro
fesses to bei
M'SWEENEY AND HOYT ARE NEWSPAPER
We heard a strong supporter
of Colonel Hoyt say, that the
newspapers are supporting Gov
ernor McSweeney, because he is
a newspaper man. What is Col
onel Hoyt? He is now, and has
been for many years, the editor
of the Greenville Mountaineer,
and in that paper last December
advocated a coalition between
the License advocates and Pro
hibitionists to repeal the dispen
sary law. He and McSweeney
have both been presidents of the
State Press Association, and as
far as the newspapers are con
cerned both Hoyt and Mc
Sweeney have equal claims. If
McSweeney is getting the larg
est support from the newspapers,
it is because both Hoyt and Mc
Sweeney are k-nown to the edi
tors, and they believe that Mc
Sweeney's administration de
Colonel Hoyt is personally
popular with the newspaper pro
fession, but his mer-mnaid Dis
pensary-Prohibition platform is
not regarded a good thing for
If McSweeney and Hoyt's
newspaper associates, mn e n ,
whose business it is to study
public affairs, support Me
Sweeney, it is a tirst class guid
ance for the voters generally.
We notice, the few newspapers
which are supporting Colonel
Hoyt, are those that have always
fought the dispensary bitterly,
and a least one of them ha~s in
directly advocated the violation
of the law. We know of no
paper in South Carolina now
supporting |Hoyt, that at any
time supported the dispensary.
The Columbia State and the
Darlington News have always
fought with disgusting bitter
ness the dispensary and prohi
bition, and both of these ultra
papers are now supporting Hoyt
hoping, if he is elected the license
system will get back.
The Prohibition convention
which met in Chicago nominated
John J. Woolly of Indiana for
president, and Henry B. Metcale
of Rhode Island for Vice Pres
ident, and as their conven
tion was about to adjourn the
delegates sang "Blessed be the
tie that binds." We wonder
if our South Carolina Prohibi
tionists echo the same sentiment
and feel that to be consistent,
they must vote for the National
prohibition nominees? The reg
ular Democrats in this State
who are supporting candidates
that are not the nominees of
a faction, are supporting
Bryan and Stevenson. If a
man is a real, earnest Prohi
bitionist, and is supporting that
idea as a religious principle. to
be consistent he must support
prohibition wherever he finds it,
whether in the nation or the
State. No man can consistently
be a State Prohibitionist and
an advocate of liquor.
