"OUT, THE DAMRED SPOT."
Because constables are to be
sent to York County to enforce
prohibition the Columbia Record
has discovered that the voting
out of the Dispensary in that
county was a mistake. It took
constables to keep down illicit
selling when the Dispensary was
running at full blast in York, and
it will take these officers to keep
it down now that the Dispensary
has been removed. The opera
tion of prohibition in the counties
which voted out the Dispensary
has not been long enough to be
a test. In fact, some of the
counties that voted out the Dis
pensary are still running their
Dispensaries as if no vote had
been taken. The political graft
ers have succeeded in cutting
down a lot of legal technical logs
to obstruct the passage of the
anti-Dispensary forces, and it be
gins to look now as if their pur
pose is to force the question into
the general primary, where the
henchmen and boodlers can get
in their crochet-work to save the
Dispensary and the political lives
of some of the crew that is fast
sinking the ship of state in a
mire of corruption.
There is only one thing that
can save South Carolina from
the heel of the political tyrants,
,and that is the coming session
of the General Assembly.
Will it do it ? Will the Leg
islature hearken to the voice
of the people, and rid the State
of this festering sore-the State
dispensary. Have we in our
General Assembly men who are
not afraid of the politician's
whip? This is the time to show
independence of character, and
a wise patriotism. There is no
argument to sustain the State
dispensary after its long and
miserable debauch, nor do we
believe the time is at hanid when
Prohibition as a State institution
can be enforced. Then what is
to be done to regulate the traffic
in intoxicants? Our remedy is
today,what it has been for years;
have dispensaries under county
control with the entire profit
going to the county. We are
convinced that the dispensary
law as it is can never be satis
factory, no amount of tinkering
with it, or patching it up can
take away the bad smell it .has
created. If the nasty thing had
confined its demoralization to the
liquor business,it probably would
be tolerated for a while longer,
but such is not the case, its bane
ful infiuence has found its way
into nearly every branch of our
government, and it has become
a matter of self defense to rid
ourselves of it. There must be
something done to take its place;
liquor will be sold, the question
for our Representatives then, is
how and where shall it be sold.
-We say today what we have said
from the beginning, there is no
better way to secure the enforce
menlt of a law than by giving
the people the law they want.
'Where is the sense in trying to
enforce the dispensary law in a
bommunity that will not have it,
and look on it as an encroach
ment upon their civil rights,
these people will have liquor,
and will sell it, they are willing
to conform to our constitution
by selling as does the dispensary
now, but they claim the State
has no moral right to the sale of
it, and as citizens, they are wil
ling to pay for the privilege.
These people say this, and they
are backed up by the sentiment
and court machinery of their
communities. Therefore, we say,
what -is the use of remaining
blind to the conditions, and con
tinue to keep that portion of our
citizenship in the ranks of law
breakers,,.it would be far better
te grant them license.
Then, there are communities
that are religiously opposed to
the sale of liquor, it is obnoxious
to them and a source of deep
humiliation to have liquor sold
against their will.- These people
should have prohibition, and the
people who want liquor under
government control or anyway
they can get it, let them have
the dispensary, and let them
own and control it. There is no
need to maintain a central liquor
station at Columbia. Each county
after a majority declare in favor
of the dispensary system can1
maintain its own dispensary,
and if grafts creep into them,
the county can root it out much
easier than if the -thing gets the
mastery of' a huge political ma
chine as the dispensary now has
over the politics of this State.
Down with the State Dispensary
and provide Local Option will
be the wisest and safest legisla
tion our legislature can enact at
the coming session.
A Missouri schoolboy defined:
a friend as "one who knows all]
about you and likes you just the
same." That is better than
rHE TRAGEDY AT GAFFNEY.
The horrible tragedy at Gaff
ney in which two men lost their
lives in attempting to protect
their lady companions from the
insults of a libertine hotel pro
prietor, should arouse the indig
nation of every man in South
Carolina, and no legal effort
should be spared to bring the
bloodthirsty villain to justice.
The leading editorial in last Mon
dav's News and Courier is so
completely in accord with our
views upon this deplorable sub
ject that we reproduce it in full:
Milan Bennett, musical director of the
" Nothing But Money " company, was
shot through the heart and instantly
killed by George Hasty at Gaffney, S.
C., last Friday morning. Abbott Davi
son, comedian and star performer of the
same company, was shot and wounded
mortally by the same man at the same
time and died on Saturday. Hasty was
arrested by the Sheriff and lodged in
jail, and the Coroner's jury, we are told,
"brought in a verdict in accordance
with the facts."
The "facts" appear to be that Ben
nett was most brutally slain. The tes
timony given to the Coroner's jury
showed that the homicide, one of the
proprietors of the hotel at which the
theatrical company was stopping, had
been particularly offensive in his con
duct towards two of the women belong
ing to the company; that he had tried
to force his way into the chamber occu
pied by one of them against her most
earnest protests; and that he had in
sulted another woman in the company
so grossly that she complained of his
conduct to one of his victims-the man
he shot through the heart-who said to
him: ' I do not wish to cause any trou
ble, but just wish to tell you that any
man who will look over the transom of
a lady's apartment does not conform
with my ideas of a gentleman." There
will be general agreement among de
cent and respectable men everywhere
as to the truth of that proposition. After
so expressing his opinion of the conduct
of Hasty the actor started to walk away,
but was called out into the hall of the
hotel, and, so far as the testimony
shows, without any further remarks
upon his part, and without the least
threat of assault upon the hotel keeper,
was then and there done to death. The
second vin of his murderous pistol is
reported to aave struck Hasty for his
insult to one of the women under his
protection, whereupon Hasty immedi
ately fired two shots into this man, in,
fcting wounds which proved mortal.
Inghis ante mortem statement the woun
ded man described in a very simple and
straightforward way the occurrences
which led to the slaughter of his com
rade, the attempt of Hasty to invade
the room of one of the actresses of his
company, and his denouncing her as a
liar when she charged him with that
There does not appear to be any ex
cuse for the terrible tragedy at Gaffney.
The theatrical company of which Ben
nett and Davison were members had
gone to that place in the-work of their
profession. They stopped at the hotel
of which George Hasty was one of the
owners and managers. They were his
customers, and as long as they were the
inmates of his house they were under
his protection; yet this man sought oc
casion to annoy the women of the com
pany with his undesirable attentions.
He tried to force his way into one of
the rooms assigned to them. When he
was refused admittance at the door he
tried to obtain entrance through the
windows, and finally sought to climb
hrough the transom. -When he was
exposulated with for his conduct and
fuly identified as an intruder upon the
privacy of the people he had received
into his own house, he drew his pistol
and shot one of them to death and mor
tally wounded another.
It is one of the bloodiest deeds that
has ever been committed in the State.
Will the law be sufficient for its punish
ment ? will not the penknife which
the brother of the man who killed his
own customers picked up in the hail of
the hotel where the killing was done
six hours after the shooting be regarded
as proof that George Hasty only fire~d
the fatal shots when he felt that his
own life was in danger? We may be
very sure that some such defense as this
will be made. It is generally the case
in South Carolina. Moreover, Bennett,
the man who was killed, and Davison,
the man who was mortally wounded,
were only passing through Gaffney.
They had gone there to give a theatri
cal 'performance. They were not ac
quainted with the people of the commu
nit. There were no ties between them
and those who will be required to pass
hereafter upon the guilt or innocence
of one of their own fellow citizens who
killed his own customers. The only tie
between them is the tie of humanity.
the tie of justice, the tie of mercy. Are
these attributes lacking in the 'nearts of
the people of Gaffney ? We shall see
when the trial of George Hasty is held.
I so happens that Mr. Davison, one of
his victims, was a Mason and a Knight
of Pythias. Probably his connection
with those orders may be of advantage
to the cause of justice when the laws of
this State are attempted to be enforced.
We do not wish to condemn any one
without trial, but we wish to protest in
the name of humanity against the use
less shedding of human blood at Gaff
nev. This is only another step that
marks our downward course towards
that supreme manifestation of the spirit
of violence when every man will become
a law unto himself and the strongest
will prevail over the weak.
In his speech to the Sons of the Revo
ltion in Charleston last week the Hon.
Mendel Smith, Speaker of the House of
Representatives of South Carolina,
raised his voise against the spirit of
violence which now so largely controls
the public sentiment of South Carolina.
He and other men like him must cry
aloud and spare not. The law must
prevail and crime must be punished,
whether the victims of the ready pisto'.
are native and to the manner born or
whether they come among us as stran
gers intent only upon the pursuit of
their labor and industry. The State is
stained with blood from the mountains
to the sea. The double killing at Gaff
ney would not have occurred, doubt
less, if we had always insisted in South
Carolina upon the enforcement of the
Diine injunction that " whososheddeth
man's blood by man shall his blood be

The Wilmington Star says:
Some newspapers think 15 cents
is a steep price for cotton. Most
lands produce about 250 pounds
of lint cotton, which at that
price would be $37.50 per acre
with all expenses to come out of
it. A farmer would not become
a frenzied financier if he got
fifteen cents a pound for every
bale of cotton he raised.-Ex.
The amount of whiskey sold
in the Manning Dispensary for
the year ending November 30th,
according to the State Commis
sioner's report, was $55,504.25.
I This is a fearful amount of money
that could have been used for
better purposes. Think of it! at
$50 per bale it represents a mo
ney value of 1100 bales of cotton.
At $5 per barrel it represents
11,101 barrels of flour-bread
enough to sustain life in the en
tire population for months. At
$2 per pair it represents 27,752
pair of shoes-enough to put a
good quality of shoes on the feet
of nearly every man, woman and
child, white and black, in the
county. There are 26 school dis
tricts in the county, and if this
vast amount of money was to be
divided equally between the dis
tricts each district would receive
$2,134.77. an amount sufficient to
build elegant school houses and
equip them thoroughly. People,
what are we thinking about to
continue this condition of things?
How many debts would this vast
amount of liquor money pay ?
How many mortgages it would
lift from the homes ? How many
farms could be equipped com
pletely? How many homes would
be made happy?
The thought is appalling, and
yet we go on and on sowing this
seed of ruin. Aside from the
moral phase look up the business
side, and let each man ask him
self the question, Does it pay?

Aline continued, The white
