The adrvocatcs of tho dispen
sary syStei are Imaiking a grave
inistalke in guing into the United
States Courts to thwart the will
of the people. They are adding
fuel to the flames of dissatisfac
tion by their inconsistency in ap
pealing to a court that but a
short t'me ago they were con[
demning in no mild terms. The
result to follow these desperate
attempts to crush the people's
will, can only be to precipitate
legislation that which kill the dis
pensary with one swell swoop.
and it will not surprise us if the
next session of the general. as

N. W. Brooker. former agent
for the sinking fund commission,
makes the startling statement
that in the discharge of his du
ties, he discovered apd reported
shortages in various counties in
the State, the reports showed
shortages and defalcations in sev
eral, and be was dropped be
cause, according to one of the
commission, he "was raising too
much hell in South Carolina."
We remember Mr. Brooker's re
port, which included Clarendon
County in the tax execution
shortage class, nothing was ever
done about it, but if Mr. Brooker
tells the truth, perhaps the com
mission had good reason to fear
the raising of "raising too much
hell in SouthCarolina. "Had more
"hell" been raised a few years
ago, the State would not now be
scoffed at as one of the most
rotten in the Union.

Lawyer Woods of Manning was over
here recently. He seems to be getting
a large portion of the professional work
of this section.
The people of this section are in
thorough accord with THE TIMES edi

chants of Mamning to induce the Alcolu
railroad to that town. Merchants of
Manning you had better beed the good
counsel of THE TIMEs editor. The
Aldermans with their pluck and enter
prise have already benefitted' Salem
and if Manning is alive to its own best
interests, the business men of that
place should lose no time in conferring
with "Old Pa" and induce him to run
his road straight into our county seat.
This road will takc more trade into
Manning from Salem than is now being
cut off fromn that town by. the rapidly
growing town of Summerton. We
Salemites like Mannin~r. aud prefer
doing our tradinug there, but some of
the hindrances are poor roads and no
railroad facilities all of which can be
remedied if the proper steps are taken.
