The Spartanburg Journal and
Yorkville Inquirer are not pleas
ed with the attitude of the Co
lumbia State and Columbia Rec
ord, because these papers at the
capitol insist upon demanding
proof of the charges of corrup
tion in the management *of the
State dispensary, and since the
twoup-country newspapers drag
ged into the discussion the Rich
land Distillery. and the bottle
making works, more besides the
Columbia newspapers seem to
have had their toes trod upon.
Suppose the Richland Distillery
is owned by citizens of Columbia
what difference would it make to
-the State so long as it furnished
the dispensary with as good
goods at as cheap price as it
could buy elsewhere. We do not
know what changes have taken
place within the past few years,
but when the institution first be
gan operations, we doubt exceed
ingly if any members of the
present Board of Control had
any stock in it, and we had-nd!v'
been informed of the stock being
owned by any Columbians. The
Act which created the Richland
Distillery is very familiar to the
writer, who we think, had some
thing t6 do with it, and at the
time was in a position to know
- all about the affairs of that com
pany, and we unhesitatingly say
that the Richland Distilling Co.
was started as a legitimate busi
ness institution, with no "friends
at court," and with. a view of
securing patronage from the
State Dispensary by' outstrip
ping competition. That because
this concern sells more goods to
the dispensary than outside dis
tilleries is io sign of corruption;
it can afford to sell cheaper, be
ing right on the ground with no
frieghts to pay. We have always
been opposed to the State Dis
pensary, but we do not believe
-in fighting oinfairly, and to inti
mate that there is corruption be
-cause the institution largely pat
ronizes home concerns is not an
attractive argument. In our opin
ion, stronger evidences of cor
ruotion can be found by inquir
iug into the cause of certain
lignior men going about the State
visiting dispensers. The local
dispenser has nothing to db with
the purchase of goods, and if
these travelling men are offering
them inducements to push cer
tain brands, it is a graft which
should not be permitted.
President Roosevelt expects
-to visit the South, but there are
*a few newspapapers that want
-him to come with his hat in his
hand and beg for the privilege
of visiting this section. If he
will receive him as becomes the
oicheholds, and when he re
-turns to Washington he will
have a better opinion of this
--country than he can. form from
some of its newspapers.
*-At' the coming session of the
-legislature we would suggest to
our law-mukers to look into the
matter of requiring telegraphI
companies to afford more con
venient facilities for the transac
tion of business for towns far
removed from the railroad sta
tion as Manning is.. The tele
graph company secures rights
from the public as much so as
do the railroads and it should be
forced to have some regard for
the public's interests. We hope
our delegation will take this mat
ter in hand at the opening of the
Senators Tillmnan and Bacon
have ehch given out interviews
upon the future solidity of the
South. What these statesmen
say is nothing - more nor less
*than worn out political material
that has been the stock-in-trade
of every politician for the past
thirty years. The people would
much prefer these leaders to de
vise some means by which the
South can free herself from po
litical servitude that only inures
to the benefit of those holding
high -office. They talk about the
15th, amendment being repealed,
-as though they did not know
that there is no more change for
the repeal of that amendment to
the constitution, than there is
for the South to lose white su
premacy. The 15th, amendment
will stand. and the thing for our
statesmen to do is to bring
about a condition that a man
of pride and intellig e n c e
can vote like a free man should
A wise statesmanship can bring
about this desired condition
without jeopardizing the su
premacy of the white man either.
It can be done in our primaries
simply by permitting a free and
open discussion of public ques
tions. 'It is about time for our
statesmen to quit moping over
the ashes of the past and bring
the people to a realization of
Now since poor Parker's de
feat the Democratic newspapers
that championed his cause and
were going to elect him, are
putting the blame for his defeat
upon hini, and those who en
gineered his campaign. Parker
was not to blame for Roosevelt's
overwhelming election, if there
is any blame it can be laid at the
door of the obstructionists in the
United States Senate, who did
their best to obstruct all legis
lation which looked towards
progressiveness. The business
element saw this and that is why
the Republicans made such
heavy gains in Democratic cities.
Don't blame Parker, but we do
need a different leadership, one

Woman's District Conference.
LCrowded out last week.j
The District Conference of the Sum
ter District Woman's Foreign Mission
arv Society was held in Manning, be
ginning Friday evening, November 18,
1904. An interesting program had
been arranged, and a goodly number
of home folks and visiting delegates
assembled in the Methodist church,
but Mrs. Wightman, State President:
Mrs. Humbert, State Secretary, and
Mrs. Wait, who were expected on the
evening train, missed connection, so
failed to come, and Mrs. Darby, Dis
trict Secretary, who had been quite
sick for several days, faithful as ever,
came, but was too indisposed to preside.
So after a short prayer and song service
conducted by Brother Brunson, P. C..
the congregation was dismissed.
Promptly at 10:30 Saturday morning
the conference was called to order,
Brother Brunson conducting devotional
exercises, after which he welcomed the
ladies in behalf of the church, and in
troduced Mrs. Darby. who, though still
suffering, took the chair and presided
in her usual graceful and dignified
manner. Miss Fannie Davis. in a few
well chosen words, greeted the visitors
in the name of the two Auxiliaries,
the Foreign and Home Mission Socie
ties of Manning, saying Mhat these two
were twin sisters, working together
side by side to fulfill the command, "Go
ye, preach the Gospel" at home and
abroad, and having been admonished
to say something new and finding noth
ing new to say, she closed by inviting
the visiting sisters to meet the sisters
of the Manning Auxiliaries later, and
they would endeavor to greet them in
like manner as Paul exhorted the
Thessalonians] to greet the brethern.
Miss Brown responded in a happy
manner. Miss Hattie Jcnes, of Sum
ter, was made Seci'etary. The various
committees were appointed, and then
the reports from the Auxiliaries were
called for. These reports were atten
tively listened to, and in almost every
instance they showed advancement in
the work. Mrs. W. T. Sprott, of Jor
an, reported their Auxiliary suspen
ded, owing to so many having moved
away from their community (Jordan's
loss has been Manning's gain), but be
ing assured that two or three, or even
ne faithful woman could form an auxil
iary and keep the missionary, spark
live. She promised to see that the
work was revived.
The reports of the Juveniles were
especially good, and these little ladies
ave evidence that fine timber was
growing with which to fill our plans
later on. Miss Bracy of Bethel church,
Oswego, read a report from the Golden
Links, which excited much interest.
This is a new organization, destined to

people, who had out grown the Juve
