PROHIBITION A FAILURE.
Theo liquor questionl Is beingy
piscusased at al time , o than
any other. Editors, preachers
and politicians are contending to
prove their respective sides of
the contention. The ministers,
who should practice and preach1
temperance at all times, are,
with a remarkable sigularity,
on the eve of an election, preach
ing prohibition: many of them
are advising their hearers to
vote for the present candidates
po are running on the Prohi
bition platform. These inis
ters resent being told they are
making the pulpit a political
stump, and claim they have as
mich riht to discuss these ques
tions as any other citizen. oe
know of no one who has been so
silly as to dispute the legal right
of a preacher to vote and discuss
political questions; the law of
the land ruarantees to ever cit
izen the .-inht of suffrage, but
there are many people, while
they concede a preacher's legal
right to vote and talk politics,
think that when a preacher does
these things,unless he is exceed
inwly careful he will injure his

fore the war at 25 cents per gal

therefore if the people of Maine
spent $25,000,000 and got their
liquor for 25 cents per gallon,
they must have consumed 100,-,

sane or reasonable man believe
such a statement? Well, take
all of the prohibition literature,
the sermons and speeches and
nearly all of them will try to
ran such a ludicrous statement
down the throats of intelligent
people in an effort to make them
believe that under prohibition
,24.000.000 have been annually
saved to the people of Maine.
The prohibition advocates not
only contend that under prohi
bition, Maine has saved $24,000.
000 annually, but that her prop
erty values have increased, while
that of South Carolina has de
creased. This statement is not
borne out by the official rec
ords, which show as follows:
Property valuations in Maine
in 1880 was $511,000,000: in 1890
it was $489,134,128, showing by
the official records which we
have before us, and open to the
public for inspection, to be a de
crease of 21S.658.72.
Property valuations in South
Carolina in 1880 was $322,000,
000: in 1890, $400,911,303, an in
crease of $789,113.03. Notwith
standing the fact, that South
Carolina was robbed, burned and
pillaged by soldiers of Maine, we
have increased in property while
Maine has decreased.
Every statement made by the
Prohibitionists going to show
that prohibition has been a suc
cess,can be refuted by the official
records, the only safe guide,
when seeking information. To
further prove that prohibition is
a failure wherever it has been
tried, we take from the report of
the United States Commissioner
of Internal Revenue for fiscal
year ending June 80, 1899, show
ing the number of licenses issued
in prohibition States:

These figures with reference

which will not take chances with
It will thus be seen that in the
prohibition State of Maine, with
a population half the size of
South Carolina, there are 1,123
retail revenue licenses issued by
the United States government.
In the prohibition State of Iowa,
with a very little larger popula
tion than South Carolina, the
United States government has
issued 3,730 retail liquor licenses.
In the prohibition State of Kan
sas, with a slightly increased
population over South Carolina,
the United States government
has issued 2,581 retail liquor li
These figures are taken from
the official records of the United
States government and we be
lieve they are worthy of more
credence than the wild assertions
of men who, in their zeal for the
cause they represent, get mighty
close to fanaticism.
Prohibition has failed wher
ever tried and the reason Maine
and those other States do no
change, in our opinion, is be
cause the liquor element is con
tent with things as they are.
Under present conditions they
procure a United States license
and pay a nominal fine occasion

whereas if a change to a license
system was made these liquor
people would have to pay out
more money for a license than
they do now for fines.
But all of the statistics and
facts taken from the official rec
ords will not be of any effect
upon the politicians who are rid
ing the Prohibition horse for of
tice,nor will they have any etfect
upon the politician-preachers
wvho are aiding and abetting in
the conspiracy to change the po
litical complexion of the State
In showing, these fiIures we
only have hope to convince the
manii Who is a Prohibitionist from
principle and not for politics.
We want overw voter to look
:1round him and see if those who
are leading the present Prohibi
Tion tig-ht are not the same men
wvho have tried other devices to
get back into politics. They are
the tirst to let vou know that
there are no factional lines and
yet all of their prominent candi
dates are men of the same fac
tion. Take the newspapers in
this State supporting prohibi
tion and these same papers sup
ported Haskell in 1890 and Pope
in 1894. We claim that the plat
form of the Prohibitionists does
not represent prohibition-it is a
political device to capture the
church support. We also claim,
according to the Prohibition
platform, the sincere Prohibi
tionists will not get what they
are seeking, even if the so-called
Prohibition party is successful;
and we futher claim that the
nominee of the Prohibition party
is not an advocate of prohibition
as a religious principle, because
no longer than last December lie
advocated a coalition with the
license advocates to kill the dis
pensary law. We believe, if the
present Prohibition movement is
successful, it will be the begin
ning of a split in the Democrat
ic party: those who will be
in charge of the party's
machinery will turn same over
to the national Prohibition
party which has already nomi
nated candidates for President
and Vice President. Why should
not the Prohibition party in this
State align itself with their na
tional party? If a man is a Pro
hibitionist from principle he can
not be a national Democrat and a
State Prohibitionist, because
they are two separate political
parties, and he cannot belong to

DISPENSARY vs. PROHIBITION.
Ediitor The Manning Times:
The year nineteen hundred ushers in
South 'Carolina another election year
and the time for election is fast ap
proaching, and it appears that the
most important question that is rife
throughout the State, and uppermost
in the minds of the Democratic voters,
and the minds of the people of South
Carolina generally, is the issue of the
whiskey question. The voters of the
State will be called upon to settle this
vexed question for South Carolina for
the next two years at least,at the ballot
in the primary election to be held
in August next. There are two solutions
now presented to the voters to decide
or to settle by their votes at the ballot
box: namely: the Dispensary or Pro
hibition-And as the voters will be
called upon to detine their position, and
express their views in the manner that
they cast their ballots, in regard to
which of the two solutions as here pre
sented is the best of the whiskey ques
tion in South Carolina, we think it no
more than fair to the voters of Claren
don county for candidates seeking leg
islative honors by the votes and through
the confidence of the voters to be r'e
quired to define their position openly
and to express their views frecely, and
in language to be fully and plainly un
derstood whether they are for the dis
pensary and the dispensary plan of dis
pensing whiskey in South Carolina as
the best solution of the whiskey ques
tioa or whether they are for fastening on
the people of this State the perplexing,
an aggravatina experiment of prohi
bition as a better solution cf this rest
less question. As a candidate for r-e-'
election to legislative honors, and with
a renewal of my thanks to the voters
for their suff rages in the last election,
and my high appreciation of their con
fidence. thereby bestowing upon me
the distinguished honor as a represent
ative to represent the people of Claren
don in the past Legislature of our grand
and noble old State, I will now define
my position in regard to the whis
key question briefly, and leave the
matter to the careful perusal of the
readers of THE MANNING TIMES
and for the voters of Clarendon
at the ballot box to pass in judgment
on the same. I am for the dispensary,
and the dispensary plan of dealing with
the question of whiskey in this State
because I believe this is the best solu
tion of this agitating question. The
dispensary as far as I have been able
to discover and that by close observa
tion has beyond reasonable contradic
tion been conducted on a higher plane
of decency than by any plan that whis
key has ever heretofore been sold un
der in this State, and we say this be
cause every person knows the rules
and i-egulations whiskey is sold through
taig Scott's Emulsion be
cause it's warm weather.

the dispensary. Everv candid and fair
minded man in the State we dare say t
will admit that under the dispensary t
plan of selling whiskey that the legal
sale of whiskey has been lessened a
large per cent. it matters not what the
teachings of the enemies to dispensary
is, to the contrary, and this being true
why not let the dispensary alone, and
instead of some persons trying to break
the dispensary down. let every man call
ing himself a law abiding citizen and a
friend to decency, do everything in his
power to see that the dispensary law
is rigidly enforced. The dispensary
has never had a fair test and all know
this assertion to be true. It is a well
known fact that the dispensary has
been fought by a certain element in
South Carolina ever since the law was
made that established the dispensary.
and every conceivable obstacle thrown
in the way to bring disrepute upon the r
plan, not only in the eyes of the people
in the State. but in the eyes of the peo
ple throughor.t the country generally.
i ut in spite of every obstacle and hiil
derance thrown aeross its path the dis
peusary has been sustained by a major
itv of the voters of South Carolina re- I
ardless of past factional political dif
ferences, and by the co-operation and
the support of its friends has over rid
den every reasonable opposition and
still holds the fort with flying collors.
'rhe right of the State to engage in
selling whiskey and the principle of the
same to do so~has again and again been
questioned. and that harshly by many,
but the highest legal tribunal in this
country the Supreme court of the
United States has sustained South Car
olina in this action, and has declared in
language too plain to be misunderstood,
that South Carolina has the legal and
undisputed right to police and regulate
the sale of whiskey within the borders I
of the State. This much on the dis- t
pensary is sufficient I believe to define
my position in regard to the same. and
so'thinking I will dismiss the dispen
sary part of the question, and take up
prohibition and say why I am opposed
Prohibition through State legislative
enactment never has nor never will
prohibit the consumption of whiskey,
it matters not what is taught to the
contrarv. The only way prohibitory
laws could be effective would-be for the
general government to prohibit the
manufacture of whiskey through out
the whole country. No sensible man
in this whole country could be made to
believe that this could be done,for every
one knows what a rich harvest in rev
enue the general government reaps
from the manufacture of whiskey. The
consumers of whiskey pay this revenue.
Let the government deprive itself of
this source of revenue, and what would
be the result? How would the general
government, and through what source
would this tremendous revenue be
regained? It would simply be regained
on some articles of consumption no
doubt that would work a tax on every
person in this country it matters not
what the age may be, for every one
knows that the greedy maw, financially
speakin of the general government,
can never be filled or satisfied.
Ruling the general government entirely
out of the question and taking up the
States that have tried the perplexing
and aggravating experiment, of prohi
bition, and what has been the result?
To illustrate we will take the State of
Maine the birth place of the late Neal
Dow the' oldest apostle of prohibition
that we can call to mind, and after
wrestling with this aggravating exper
iment of prohibition for the past forty
%ears and more, and what is the ver
'dict of a committee appointed by the
citizens at different plces in the State
of Maine, to investigate and see how
this great law of forty years standing
was working. The committee after
making the investigation, published a
lengthy report and cited many causes
of complaint in the very slack enforce
ment of the law, and as good as pro
nounced the law a farce and a failure.
This committee was so disappointed at
their findings that in their report they
were constrained to say. "It is this ad
dition of a little legal sugar to Maine's
illegal whiskey that is bringing our1
grand old State into contempt abroad
and into civil paralysis at home, from
which rescue is possible only as a quick
ened public conscience and enlightened
zeal cleanses this law in its enforcement

and a forgotten God, wipe it off the
From many accounts,and the accounts]
from reliable sources, the Maine Prohi
bition law is not only openly and fla-i
grantly violated, but is in every con
eivable manner evaded as well, and
for a little instruction of the readers
generally of THE TIMES along the line
of evasion of the prohibition law of
Maine, we will here take time to relate
our reading, a few years ago of an arti
cle taken from a paper published in
Maine, to the best of our recollection
now the cutest piece of the evasion of
law we ever read or heard of. The ar
ticle read this way, or mostly to this
On the shores of Maine there live
many men who are engaged in the fish
erv business for a livelihood. These
men ply their business in the Penob
scot bayv. In the waters of this bay(
there are many very large fish know n
as the "Halibut." The fishermen of
this part of Maine catch and sell every(
day a great many of these large fish.
rhe men go miles away from land in
little sail-boats called fishing smacks.(
The fishermen ply the vocation of the
"blind tiger" as well as that of fishing.
These fishermen while, on their fishing
voyages, trade largely in whiskey. The
whiskey is brought and sold to the
Maine fishermen by men outside of
Maine and from other parts of the
iountry. The whiskey is sold by quarts
in quart flasks at so much a quart or
lask. The fishermen all have the
names of their customers booked. The
fishermen have the names of Prohibi
tionists and the names of the anti-Pro- -
hibitionists on their books. Towards
the close of the day the Maine fisher
men come ashore and sell their fish.
By the time they reach the shore they
have their plans made for selling their
whiskey and the disposition of their
fish. 'lhe fishermen take so many of
the fish, run their hands down the
throat of the fish and easily force into
the maw of the fish a quart flask of
whiskey. The fishermen, being ac
quainted with their customers and
knowing their views on whiskey andv
the Maine prohibition liquor law, will
sell each one of their customers a fish
that will tally with their views of the
purchaser on the whiskey question.
The anti-Prohibitionist customer will
get a fish with a quart flask of whiskey
in its maw, paying in addition to the -
price of the fish the price of the quart
of whiskey. The Prohibition customer
will buy his fish and get no whiskey,
will go home, eat his fish and affirm
that the Prohibition law is fully effect
ye in the great Prohibition State of -
Maine. The anti-Prohibitionist will
buy his fish, go home, as soon as he gets
home he will run his hand down the
throat of the fish he has bought and
draw from the fish's maw his quart of
whiskey. The Anti-Prohibitionist will
not be long in sampling his flask of
"oh-be-joyful," and the next move he
will be on the streets of some of the
towns of prohibition Maine, cutting up
high jinks generally to the great dis
may and discomfiture of the Prohibi- -
tionists individually and collectively of
the great prohibition State of Maine.
So I am done with the matter of dis
pensary and prohibition and will leave
it in the hands of the~ voters of
Clarendon to decide by their votes at ]
the August primary election. To de
cide for Clarendon's part whether it
will be better to continue the dispen-I
sary plan of dealing with whiskey i n
South Carolina by a rigid enforcement
of the dispensary law, or the inflicting
upon the people a prohibition law that 6
