For or Against the Dispensary.
ditor The Manning Times:
In the issue of the 8th inst., of the
ews and Courier, it published and
pproves a _suggestion of Mr. Sam Grist
u the coming primary election in ac
~ordance with the above head line as
aken from the News and Courier.
Mr. Grist suggests further that ev
~ry candidate for legislative honors be
-equired to express himself in regard
o how he individually stands, "For or
~gainst the Dispensary."
The suggestion of Mr. Grist's is
imply the suggestion of a private citi
en and one possessed with the right
nly to vote in approval of his sugges
ion if he so wishes, and has the chance
o do so.
In 1898 and 1900 the issue mainly be

Go back to 1882 and 1883 and many
ill remember what I say, in the town
Manning for instance.
Prior to these dates there was in
[anning two or three bar rooms paying
good revenue to the town. It came

year; wet meant a continuation of the
bar rooms while dry meant prohibition.
. The dry ticket won and the bar tend
ers had to pull 4own their fixtures, pull
up their stakes and emigrate to Sumter
At the end of the year the authori
ties of Manning realized the loss of\a
nice pile of revenue, a plenty of disa
greeable drunkenness, and prohibition
a farce and a failure. At the election
in 1883 prohibition was defeated and
the bar rooms re-established.
All the objections to the dispensary
in all other ways up to a short time ago
has been made of no avail as the Su
preme Court of - the United States has
declared decisively in favor of the
State of South Carolina to regulate the
sale of intoxicants in the State.
The slogan now of the enemies of the
dispensary is, its power is'unduly used
for political purposes. Some people
seem to be so sure of the truthfulness of
the charge that the dispensary is a
power in politics till they ought to show
up or shut up.
We have no objection of the sugges
tion of Mr. Grist being made as an issue
in the comning primary election, and all
candidates for legislative honors being
required to say in the right of free men
whether they are for or against the dis
pensary-whether they stand in sup
port of the dispensary as the best solu
tion of the whiskey question in South
Carolina, or whether they stand for
A large majority of the voters of'
South Carolina are in favor of the dis
pensary as against prohibition and all
this we believe is beyond any question.
Prohibition has been twice defeatedI
in a fair and open political contest in
this State and we venture the predic- I
tion, that prohibition though sugar
coated and disguised as local option
will be defeated by the dispensary ev
ery time, hands down.

S Ice cream freezers have not alw ays been the marvelous machines
Sthat they are today. In former times the freezing of cream, sherbets,
Swater ices. etc., was accomplished with no end-of labor' and expense.
. so much so that the serving of these delightful dishes was looked
Supon as quite an event in the family circle, and on many occasions
parental authority had to be asserted to keep the younger members
Sof the family within bounds.
S Today. with cheap ice and persect freezers nothing is more corn
mon than the serving of frozen dishes which not only appeal to our
Ssense of taste, but the cheapness by which they can be made rerider
them them dessirable.
S Foremost among the Freezers of today is the "Arctic," which
will in from seven to ten minutes freeze to uniform hardness, cream
Sof even grain and perfect smoothness. They are made in sizes from
one to ten quarts and are strong and durable in every way. Booklet
accompanies each freezer w hich tells how to make all kinds of nice
things at small cost.
EEFEOTION OIL STOVES & OVENS.
ZOil Stoves were at one time given up as useless, owing to the dis
agreeable odor from burning oil, but since the BLUE FLA ME OIL~
~STOVE was brought out their use has been revived and are again-~
becoming quite popular. They are absolutely safe and reliable, gir
ing a quick heat and little cost and are the very thing for warm. The
combustion of the oil is perfect and by turning off the valve all loose
oil is consumed before the fire is extinguishep. Ladies who are usim
them are delighted and speak of them in the highest praise. We
-have an excellent stock of these. with one and two burners.
