The Dispensary is the Best Solution of the
Edifwr The liarning Times:
We have from the conception
and enactment of the dispensary
law till the present time believed
this is the best solution of the
whiskey question that has ever
been devised in South Carolina,
and though a good solution, yet
the dispensary has been assailed
on every hand by an element of
snarling malcontents who has
never failed to openly encourage
the violation of the dispensary
law, and who has never lost an
opportunity to throw every ob
stacle in the pathway of the dis
pensary and the dispensary law
to bring it into disrepute.
In 1898 the ex-barroom keepers
and a large following of the
Prohibitionist. chafing under
the popularity of the dispensary,
joined forces in a mighty politi
cal effort, for the overthrow of
the dispensary in the election of
The result of that election was
a defeat of the Prohibitionists
and their allies by a majority of
between three and five thousand
In 1900 the Prohibitionists and
their supporters was again de
feated. This time by a majority
of more th'an 14000. This last
defeat completely disheartened
and demoralized the opponents
of the dispensary so much so
that they made no further effort
to openly measure political arms
with the friends and supporters
of the dispensary.
With all these decisive politi
cal defeats against them, the
enemies of the dispensary have
kept up a desultory- fre on the
dispensary by making accusation
against the persons elected and
appointed to manage the dispen
sary affairs under the dispensary
law. The enemies of the dis
pensary charge the Board of
Directors of the dispensary at
Columbia of being grafters and
dishonest and men who are run
ning the affairs of the dispensary
to their own advantage and
gain, and still yet, there is not
one of these accusers who has
expressed any willingness or de
sire to enter any court house in
South Carolina and testify
against anyone or all of the ic
The gentlemen: composing the
board of directors of the dispen
sary at Columbia were presented
to the legislature at its last ses
sion as gentlemen, as honest
men and as men of integrity, and
by an honorable legislature elect
ed to the positions they are now
To quiet the clammorings of
the office seeking Prohibitionists
disgruntled Dispensarites and
enemies of the dispensary gen
erally the legislature at its last
session appointed a committee of
'investigation to meet at some
time during the present year to
investigate the dispensary af
fairs of the State so as to ascer
tain if there is any truth in the
accusations that has been made
from, time to time against the
managers of the dispensary gen
erally. This committee has
already commenced its labors by
investigating the Spartanburg
county dispensary affairs. The
committee commenced its tri
bunal, summoned informers and
after a very tiresome and pains
taking hearing adjoarned to
Columbia to continue the inves
tigation until the Spartanburg
county dispensary again has
been disposed of. So far the
only witnesses that have testified
in this case and at the hearing is
disgruntled dispensarites on one
side and dispensary incumbents
on the other. The investiga
tions of the committee in the
Spartanburg affair so far has
revealed nothing that is conclu
sive and satisfactory to the pub
lic, but to the contrary, the
whole matter has beezi simmered
down to a question of veracity
and veracity only.
There seems that the only
complaint against county dis
pensers, and some only, is that
some of them has omitted to en
ter the name of the purchaser,
the amount and the kind of li
quor bought, on a book as the
dispensary law requires,.- We
believe that no county dispenser
has omitted to comply with this
requirement of the dispensary
law, intentionally to violate the
law. All impartial and - fair
minded and reasonable persons
never hold anyone accountable
for the commission of a deed
but for the intention when comn
Imitting the deed. Violating any
law unintentionally is no viola
tion of law at all and no one but
a fool would so consider the
If the investigations reveal
the guilt of the dispensary offi
cials, put them out, put better

Three Jurors Cured of Cholera Morbus with
One Small Bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
Mr. G. W. Fowler, of Hightower,
Ala., relates an experience he had
while serving on a- petit jury in mur
der case at Edwardsville, county seat
of Cleburne county, Alabama. He says:
"While there I ate some fresh meat
and some souse meat and it gave me
cholera morbus in a very severe form.
I was never more sick in my life and
sent to the drug store for a certain
cholera mixture, but the druggist sent
me a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy instead
saying that he had what I sent for, but
that this medicine was so much better
he would rather send it to me in the
fix I was in. I took one dose of it and
was better in five minutes. The second
dose cured me entirely. Two fellow
jurors were afflicted in the same man
ner and one small bottle ::ured the
three of us." For sale by The R. B.

after so doing, we will leave th(
question for every person to set
tle for themselves and when af.
ter doing so every one are al
liberty to form their own conclu
sions, and if necessary in thc
future to act accordingly.
The Brice Bill provides, that
whenever one fourth of the
qualified voters of a county sign
a petition asking a county super
visor to order an election to set

the sale of whiskey shall be leg
alized or prohibited in said coun

by the operations of this bill, in
the county or counties so voting.
Cherokee, Pickens and Union
counties have already had their
say and are now Prohibition
counties in name. but in fact, we
believe not. We would not give
a nickle for all the prohibition
that could be mustered in coun
ties of this State bordering on
the North Carolina line.
There is a few more counties

The Brice local option bill is
undemocratic for the simple rea
son that under certain provis
ions of the bill a certain number
of free democratic white men
are not allowed to vote.
If our recollection serves us
right. it was charged after the
election was held in Pickens to
vote out the dispensary under
the Brice great democratic bill,
hat two hundred white demo
rats and taxpayers were not al
owed to vote, upon the poor
plea that they were not qualified
voters of the county, by not be
