While the farmers of this
State have been quietly attend

to save their crops from the
ravags of the grass, and from
liw, it unprecedented heavy
rains, there have been a few of
the vanquished Prohibitionists
o) rie y ears ago, with their
allies, ex-barroom keepers, town i
loafers and defeated and dig
appointed office seeking dispen
sarites, waging an unfair war
against the dispensary in some
of the counties of South Caro
lina with the expectation that
the unfair war will become gen
eral in all the counties. and ere
long. the dispensary in every
county or the State will be
driven out, and all to their sweet
notions. and to their election

It is very amusing to see how
easy it is for the enemies of the
dispensary to get the required
number of voters in a county
that is required to call an election
on the question of dispensary
or no dispensary.
To be fair to all we think the
list of voters to a call for an
election should be published in
each county pier at least thirty
days before the election to be
held in a county. so that the
friends of the dispensary could
have fair play and could have
the chance to expose, and to
challenge any fraudulent voter
whose uame might be on the list
of voters calling for an election.
In these elections it might be
charged as it is charged in all
other elections in South Caroli
na, that many dead men vote as
well as living men.
To sustain the plea for fair
play the writer will quote a little
writing of the Columbia corres

that immediately after the first three or
four drafts of smoke smokers begin to
feel a slight headache; then they see
everything moving, and finally they
lose all control of their mental facul

takes the shape of a monster, and men
look like devils. They begin to fight,
and of course everything smashed is a
