PRINCIPLE VS. MAN-WORSHIP.
When a man is afflicted with
political hydrophobicus, he neith
er looks to the right, nor to left,
but continues on his way scatter
ing his poisonous saliva, with
which he tries to inoculate those
he comes in contact with.
Our friend Jones, of Davis,
shows symptoms of rabies in his
letters to the press when he at
tempts to discuss the liquor ques
tion, to the extent that he sees
no good in those who .do not
agree with him. and because
they do not agree with him he
charges them with insincerity
and treachery. There are men
in South Carolina who had every
confidence in the efficiacy of the
dispensary law when it was first
put into operation-they regard
ed it the best solution of the
vexatiousproblem,but after many
yearsof trial, they have reached
the conclusion that the State dis
pensary is not only a financial
failure, but that it contaim
deadly germs, which if not erad
icated soon, will inoculate oui
entire body politic, and result ir
leporsy,and these men,taxpayers
and intelligent, patriotic and sin.
cere, realizing the future awful
ness of a continuance of this in
stitution of corruption, havE
sanely determined, if there is a
possible way to rid themselves
of this curse, which they tried
as an experiment, and have beer
convinced it is a disappointment
to their hopes, have determined
to get relief, hence, they havE
joined in the cry to destroy thE
State dispensary, some of them
wanting prohibition, others lo.
. cal option, but both want to be
rid of the State dispensary. and
because of this change in theh
attitude, Mr. Jones would have
the "wool hats stard firm and bE
undismayed," and look upot
those who will no longer stand
*for the State dispensary,as trait
The Reform movement was
laujiched upon a platform o:
principles, the State dispensary
was not one of those principles,
but the principles contained in
that platform are as necessary
today as they were in 1890, and
more so, because, today there is
more corruption in our govern
ment than there was then: taxes
are higher and growing higher,
new offices are being created
every year, politicians who get
into office hold on longer, and
the rotation idea is a nullity:
the public service is not impro
ved, and such a thing as free
speech and free action is a farce.
It was said before 1890, the StatE
was ruled by an oligarchy, bui
even if that was true, it must
have been an honest one, as. not
withstanding the charge of "in
cipient rottenness." and "being
bamboozled and debauched,'
there has been no corruption un
earthed, and those in control,
whether, "aristocrats" or "one
gallus", must have conducted
the affairs in an honest, econo
mical manner. How has it been
since? How is it today?
Because men see the principles
of 1890 being trampled uinder
fopot by the leaders who were en
trusted with them, and they will
not stand for it, those who will
not open their eyes to conditions
as they exist, charge treachery,
and whenever an independent
spirit rises up it effects them the
same as a crystal stream of
water effects a mad dog.
The editor of THE~ TIMES de
nies having at any time changed
his political principles. He was
a strong supporter of B. R. Till
man, the chosen leader of the
Reform movement, but because
of that, he did not lease himself
for life to Tillinan,whether right
or wr-ong, or even if right, there
was nothing in that support
which bound him to the personnel
of the man, or men. Has Till
man adhered to the principle of
"rotation in office"? But our op
position is not to Tillman, it is
to-his system of liquor control,
and his interference with matters
he should leave alone. We think,
he has enough to do in wielding
his pitchfork in Washington.
without attempting is dictate
the course his lpeople at home
should take in matters concern
ing them. If the entire dispen
sary system was wiped out to
morrow there would be nc
treachery to the reform move
ment if support be refused tc
Tillman, for the reason, the re
form cause never contemplated
taking away from the people thE
right of local self-government as
the State dispensary advocates
are want to do, nor did the re
form cause contemplate giving
any man. or- men, life tenurt
Our own position on the liquo>
question is today what it has al
ways been. The tiles of this news
paper will show that we .doubted
the wisdomn of attempting tc
force the dispensary system ox
communities where it was noi
wat-ted: we h re aavys conten
(led tihtt to be. coisistenit with
democratie princi;les the people
should be given an opportunity
to vote upon this matter, and the
majority rule. It will be remem
bered, while still an avowed sup
porter of Tillman, we introduced
the first measure, in the Legis
lature, looking to the carrying
out of this democratic principle
'the people to vote on the ques
tion of Prohibition, Dispensary.
or License, and give to each
county the system its iajoritY
expressed at the hallot box:,tlhe
ballot being taken separate and
distinct from an election for
otlice, and we believe had this
proposition prevailed, and it
would have, had it not been for the
influence of interested politicians
and "76 corn." South Carolina
would have solved the vexatious
liquor problem. the State freed
from the nauseous conditions
which exist, and this pesky
whiskey business would not be a
factor in deciding qualification
for public oftice and trust.
The Hon. George R. Jones of
Davis, will have to, after read
ing last Saturday's News and
Courier, take back what he
charged that paper with in his
;Hurrah for Tillman and the
Dispensary" letter in last week's
TIMEs. The News and Courier
has been for a considerable
time publishing clippings favor
able to Tillman, and in the issue
we refer to, it reproduced a good.
or rather a large pavt; of M'.
Jones' letter, as well as other
clippings in praise Mr. Jones'
political idol. Therefore we
think when Mr. Jones says"The
News and Courier is re-intro
ducing its crafty schemes of 1890
for the overthrow of Tillman by
copying from many little six for
a quarter journals in intelligence
and in their conception of fair
treatment, and are heralding
their spleen and spite all over
the State and the country gen
erally, to down Tillman," he has
either not been keeping up with
the policy of the News and
Courier or his zeal for Tillman
and the dispensary will not allow
anything .or anybody to yell
"hurrah for Tillman and the dis
pensary as loud as himself."
In our judgment, instead of
discriminating against Sena
tor Tillman, the News and Cou
rier has discriminated in his
favor, to the extent that wonder
has been expressed by many
that the News and Courier does
not reproduce strong articles
both against the State dispen
sary, and the dispensary confer
ence to be called prior to the
regular Democratic convention,
which have appeared in weekly
newspapers, these articles being
of interest to many of the News
and Courier's readers, and cau
tioning the voters of the State
against, by iridifference, per
mitting the politicians capturmng
the Democratic convention to
make the support of the State
dispensary a requirement to run
for office. or vote in the primary.

The recent announcement of

There are some newspaper ed

to define what ~a Democrat is,

CHARGE OF THE WOOD BRIGADE.
Verses Which Were Read During Thursday's
Session by John Sharp Williams.
In the house Thursday Minority
Leader John Sharp Williams read a
revised edition of the 'Charge of the
Light Brigade." written by a member
whose identity was not disclosed, dur
ing the discussion of the recent fight in
the Philippines, in which women and
children were slain.
Mr Williams said the poem was called
"The Charge of the Wood Brigade,"
or what the heathen called "The Mas
sacre of Mount Dajo." As it appears
in The Record, is as follows:
-Chased them from everywhere.
Chased them all onward
Into the crates of death.
Drove them-six hundred:
-Forward. the Wood Brivade:
Spare not a one.' he said.
-Shoot all six huncired
"Forward. the Wood Brigade:
Was there a man afraid,
Not tho' the soldier knew.
Heathen had blundered.
Savages can't reply.
Heathen can't reason why.
Women and children die.
Forced in the crater of death,
Forced with six hundred.
Cannon to right of them.
Cannon to left of them.
Cannon in front of them.
\'olleyed and thundered.
"-Stormed at with shot arnd s.hell.
Women and children fell
Into the jouts of eth.
Into the mouwh of heath.
"Flas~hed althe sabres there.
Flashed as they turned in air.
Sabr'ing the women there.
Charging the women, while
All the world wondered.
Stified by cannon smoke,
Men, women, children choke
Women and children
Reeled from the bay'net stroke
In death not sundered:
Families slaughtered there -
All of six hundred.
"Cannon to right of them.
Cannon to left of them.
Cannon in front of them.
\Volleyed and thundred.
Stormed at with shot and shell.
While child and mother fell.
They that had loved so well:
Thrust into jaws of deat!b,
Trapped into mouti of hell.
Not a babe left of them
Left of six hundred.
What shall such blood-thirst slatke?
Co ask Hell-roaring Jake.
Whether Wood blunderetd.
Honor the charge they made.
Honor the Wood Brigade.
For that six hundred."
Three little rules we all should keep.
To make life happy and bright.
