Inevitably the Dispensary Will re
ceive the most attention on account of
Senator Tillman's efforts to save it.
If the Dispensary is wrong in theory
as well as in practice it ought to be
abolished. regardless of Senator Till
As a careful observer and close stu
dent of - public affairs I incline to the
theory upon which the institution was
I -have good reasons: (1 "Men will
drink whiskey: It is not the prov
ice of a government to prohibit the
constimption of any artiele unless that
article be such as to oifend public de
cency: (3) It is well known that unless
drunk before the public, or used for
purposes of intoxication and debauch
ery, whiskey is not offensive to a ma
jority of people. (4) Since men will
drink it the State ought to regulate
and control its sale, and the schools
should share in the profits.
The over-righteous cry outr. "Oh thiit
is blood money ' and we can't use it.
To an unbiased mind it appears to do
good since it diverts funds from iniq
uity and applies them where they can
do good. The great obstacle in the
way of representative goverLment is
ignorance. Men will not think for
themselves, but depend too much upon
others for their guidance.
We find ministers indulging in ti
rades against the dispensary, but oifer
ing no solution worthy the considera
tion of a true statesman.
As ambassadors of God It is the duty
of the clergy to denounce sin, and they
cannot be too severe in their denuncia
tion of drunkenness, but they should'
not ask the State to enact a law which
it cannot enforce.
My observation hasbeen that Prohi
bition cannot be enforced in South Car
lina at the present time. Suppose wve
ad P-rchibition. would the consu mp
tion of liquor decrease? Not likely.
There is no dispensary in Ro~ek Hill,
but whiskey can be had without trouble.
In fact, I am informed, reliably, that
the Southern Express Co.. brought'
from North Carolina to Rlock Hill last'
year, more than fifteen thousand gal
lons of liquor. It is the same at Fort
Mill. The dispensary did not supply
those ulaces, and hence its abolition in!
York county has not diminished its
consumption. I went to Greenwood
the city famed for anti-dlispensaryites--I
and there the whiskey comes in freely
It is so in Saluda county.
Why not prohibit the railroads from
carrying it? Because that would be re
pugnant to the Inter-State Commerce
law and would confiict with the powers
of the Federal government. It is too
much to expect that people can be
legislated into purity and virtue.
Letus retain the dispensary. but
purify it. Can it be purified? Yes,1
unless it be true that there lives not an,
honest man in our State.
As to compulsory education. I have
this to say, that if the State must pro
vide for the education of children, then
the children must attend school to re
ceieve the education. If a man is wil
ling to impose that burden on the
State he has no voice in the matter
it is the duty of the S'are. then. to
compel him to send his child to school.
The talk about its being destructive1
of democracy is the cry of ignorance.
