THE LAMOTTE LETTER
In an open letter to the dis
pensary investigating commis
sion appointed at the last ses
sion of the Legislature, Mr. T.
J. LaMotte of Columbia, ar
raigns the management of the
dispensary and shows wherein
the law is violated by those who
are entrusted and charged with
its enforcement. What Mr. La
Motte says is true, the law is not
enforced in accordance with the
Statutes, but while this is so.
yet we believe it is being better
enforced now than at any time
since the law was enacted. It is
a rare occurence where violence
is resorted to, no bloodshed, and
in most of the towns the blind
tigers have been eliminated. and
this accounts for the increased
sales and the increased revenue
to the public. The letter of the
law is not carried out, but our
conception of the dispensary
commission's duties was to bring
to book the charges of corrup
tion, and ascertain if possible,
the value per karat of the diam
onds being worn by dispen
sary officials, and where these
ornaments, and their other al
leged evidences of sudden wealth
came from. "How did they get
it?" Is the vital question the in
vestigating committee should
solve; as to the non-enforcement
of the law, everybody knows it is
not carried out to the letter, but
- what the people are anxiously
wanting to know, is it true that
stealing is going on among the
dispensary officials? There is no
gainsaying it, ever since it was
discovered that South Carolina
was entitled to 'thousands of dol
lars in rebates which the records
of the State Dispensary do
not disclose as having been
received by the State, and this
discovery was made after the
institution had been running a
year, there has been a strong
suspicion of corruption of the
rottenest kind, has put wealth
into the pockets of dispen
sary officials, -from common
constables on up to the
Governor, and at no time has
the legislature made a proper
effort to find out whether or not
these suspicions are well groun
ded. That body has appointed
investigating committees, but
it has never given them the
means nor the power to make a
searching investigation, and the
present commission 'can only do
-xwhat former commissions did,
Xreport a laxity in the enforce
nent of the law, and recommend
that the screws on the machine
be tightened. But they were
never empowered to search for
evidence of corruption in Cin
cinnatti, St. Louis, Baltimore,
Philadelphia, and other cities
where whiskey concerns are lo
cated that do business with the
dispensary. The commission was
not given the means to employ
a Pinkerton to find out if it is
true, as has been frequently al
leged, that dispensary officials
are such expert pokers players,
they win large amounts from
We have no faith in the find
ings of any commission that has
no power, and which is created
by politicians under the influ
ence of the institution to be in
vestigated. There never has
been any attempt made to have
an honest investigation of the
dispensary. The scheme is
patent on its face. The friends
of the State dispensary obtain
the floor and introduce a resolu
tion as soon as the assembly is
ready for business, so anxious
to get in on the ground floor to
secure appointments on this
committee that they are fumbling
with the paper while the chap
lain is conducting the open
ing prayer, and as soon as
"'amen'' has been pronounced,
"Mr. President" and "Mr.
Speaker" is announced at either
endof the capitol,and the machin
ery for a clipped-winged dispen
sary investigating committee is
put in motion. It is a farce and the
people are getting on to it. The
only thing holding them back
from rising up en masse to wipe
the thing out of existance, is the
fear of being overwhelmed with
taxes to relieve them from the
condition of the demoralizing
influence,that the corruption and
lax enforcement of the law has
It is suggested to change the
name of the Columbia Library
to the Thompson library, in
honor of ex-Governor Hugh S.
Thompson, who recently died in
New York, and another suggests1
to name it the Timnrod-Thomp
son library to commemorate the*
memory of Carolina's poet as
well as Carolina's father of
graded schools. Did we have
authority we would accept one~
or both these suggestions as a
fitting tribute to two men who
honored and were honored by
HALT WHILE THERE IS YET TIME.
What we had to say about our
county chaingang costing the
taxpayers 475. per month for
each convict was based upon in
formation which we did not have
time to thoroughly investigate,
but from the little investigation
we have made we believe the
cost of maintaing the chaingang
will far exceed 875. per month,
and if continued it will bankrupt
this county or make taxation
The grand jury have meni
upon it who are accustomed to
business transactions and the
management of business institu
tions, we look for these to make
a thorough examination into our
county affairs. They should see
if there are any leaks as well as
any extravagant expenditures:
it is their business to find out if
the supplies for the county are
furnished according to contract,
not alone those bought by the
Supervisor, but whether or not
the orders from his office are
filled according to contract
prices. The jury should ascertain
why the commissioners bought
a road engine at a cost of $2,500
or more. and that machine not
in use, and make inquiries into
any and all of their transactions
to see if Clarendon county is be
ing unnecessarily run into debt,
and whether or not this running
into debt is done wantonly or
from lack of business judgment.
There was more money put
into our county treasury the
past year from various sources
than ever before. The income
from whiskey alone was enough
to about pay for the county jail,
then from fines, licenses and tax
on property-more property
than in any previous year we
should, it does seem to us. with
an exercise of good business
judgment, be in good shape to
have money in our treasury to
decrease the tax, but if our gov
ernment is maintaining a little
road-working force at a cost of
over $75. per month to the man,
it will only be a matter of a few
years when it will take the en
tire taxable income,including the
booze fund, tines, and licenses
to keep the convicts and their
guards from starving.
There is a law which empow
ers the county commissioners to
hire out convicts, and in our
humble judgment, if they will
hire them out, and force those
liable to road duty to work the
the roads, it will be showing a
.wise business discretion, and a
proper consideration for the
taxpayers. Something must be
done in this matter: it will not
do to wait until the couuty is so
heavily involved that it will take
years of burdensome taxation
to relieve her. Now is the time
to check things if there is any
thing wrong, and the presen%
grand jury should employ every
means to get at the bottom of

We heartily agree with the
Columbia State in its position
with regard to the engrossing
department during the sitting
of the legislature. There is en
tirely too much of the spirit of
"you tickle me and I'll tickle
you" in all of the departments
of our government, and the con
sequence is that incompetence
creeps in to the damage of the
system. There is no need to
wonder why our laws are often
defective, when it is known that
many of the copyists get their ap
pointments to pay some political
debt, but when the mistakes are
discovered it is frequently only
after some taxpayer has paid
dearly for it in a lawsuit.

On last Saturday evening's train. a
young mam by the name of Philip
Pearson, of Sumter, came here. and
put up at the Summerton Hotel. On
.\onday he did not turn up at dinner
time with the other boarders, and 'Mr.
Tisdale went in serrch of him. He saw
the voung fellow coming from thei
depot, and when Pearson saw Tisdale
he turned and went through the woods.
Soon after. Mr. Smith, the depot agent
found the depot had been broken into
and $15. taken from a draw. Pearson's
conduct aroused suspicion. Policeman
Briggs and Magistrate Itichbourg ar
rested the man while he was having
a buggy hitched up to go to Jordan.
He was taken to the Magistrate's
office, searched, and found with the
moyey and articles belonging to the
hotel. Magistrate Richbourg commit
ted him to jail and he was sent to Man
ning. We learn that Pearson comes of
a fine family, and on their account the
affair is regretted. When searched a
pint bottle of whiskey was found in his
pocket. Telephone communication was
had with Mr. Sam Pearson of Sumter
and he declined to have anything to do
with it. This is a case of idleness and
whiskey and ruin. H.

has met with great success in the treat

of Pain Balm will relieve the pain, and

permanent cures by its use. Why suffer
