THE BATTLE BEGINS.
So far the gubernatorial can
didate nearest our views on the
liquor question is Ansel. of
Greenville, but we would lik-e to
see a stronger man out; one who
does not have strings to his
local option theories. Our idea
of local option, is local self-gov
ernment, let the people have an
opportunity to select a liquor
control system for themselves
and not have a system forced
upon them by a gang of politi
cians. Ansel has too much of
the "mother-may-I- go-out-to
swim." attachment to his local
option, and then too, he gives
his views upon public questions
with bated breath. We would
much rather have a candidate
who does not feel he is com
pelled to wear gum shoes, and
talk in a whisper whenever he
approaches a political question.
The kind of a man we want is
one who lets himself be known,
heard, and felt. May be Ansel
will develop later, we hope so.
Brunson, of Sumter, and Ed
wards, of Saluda, are Prohibi
tionists, the former a good man,
but his zeal for prohibition ex
ceeds his judgment. The Saluda
man, we know nothing about,
but it can safely be said, his
cause is hopeless. Prohibition
cannot win, the fight will be dis
pensary or local option. The
dispensary advocates are Man
ning of Sumter, Blease of New
berry, Sloan and McMahan of
Columbia. In our judment, Man
ning is the sheet-anchor of the
dispensary ship. We think he
will have the backing of Tillman,
and this'we have thought ever
since we heard of that meeting
at Clemson, and the various con
ferences at Washington. Man
ning has put on Tillman's collar,
*who will coach him. The State
*board will root for him, and so
will the constables and local dis
pensers. In other words, -Man
nling will have the entire dispen
sary machine at his back, and it
*is potent force.
Sloan and McMahan are not
expected to do more than be
barkers for the~ big "It" of the
dispensary caravan. Cole Blease,
the author of the investigating
committee resolution, is detailed
to corral the "Red Men," and
factory vote to keep them from
getting away from the dispensa
ry. If he succeeds-in preventing1
this vote from going over to the
anti-dispensary forces he will1
deserve a medal from the State
Blease, Sloan and McMahan.
will not be deuce-high in the
game, nor will Brunson and Ed
wards. The issue is drawn hard
and tight between State Dlispen
sary.and Local Option, and un
less the Local Optionists can get
out a stronger man, then it will
be Manning for the Dispensary
and Ansel for Local Option.
Aside from Manning's State dis
pensary proclivities, or rather
his political associates, there is
no objection to him, but the
men he is now allied with and
whose standard he proposes to
carry through this campaign,1
have lost caste with that great ~
element who feel the mortifica- I
* tion and humiliation of their ~
State being in the control of a
gang of grafters-men who try (
to stifle evidence at the pistol ~
point, and men whose control of
affairs of the people has been 1
one long and continued debauch- I
Manning is all right, but he is
in bad company. Ansel is a good
man, and demonstrated his pop
ularity when he ran for Gover
nor against Heyward. but we
hope he will sbarch up his back- 1
bone when the primary opens
and be more pronounced than he ~
has been heretofore- The bre'er
Crawford story will not go this ~
time, the people want a man to
show them the necessity for
driving from the State that ma- a
chine which is having such a
damning influence on our entire
State government. He should
show up the .hypocrisy of theC
State Dispensary forces in the
matter of public school funds,e
and strongly plead with the peo
ple to break the chains that pol
iticians are welding upon them,
and making of. them political
Ansel has ability, and he hasi
eloquence, but what in our opin- I
ion he needs to make him the
leader in a winning cause, is to
make an aggressive and deter
mined stand for local self-gov- i~
The people do not want their a
rights taken from them by de
- grees, as is, and has been done,
by the State dispensary system, C
nor do they want any "govern
ment by impulse." what they r
want is the right to have an in
fluential voice in their govern- d
ment. so they may select as their
competent, and honest men, who v
will lift up the State from the
mire of shame she is now in, and ~
once again give her a proud 3
position among States.

The effort of the Columbia
Record to obscure the pecula
bions of the dispensary gang, by
::rYing out that the investigating
ommittee paid themselves dou
ble for a few days during the
session of the legislature is lu
cicrous. Suppose the committee
worked at night during the ses
ion and served as legislators mn
the day, and it accepted pay for
both services, has that anything
to do with the hundreds of thous
inds stolen from the taxpayers
of the State, and the bribery,
perjury and debauchery the in

fust a few days ago, Senator
Pillman was charging President
loosevelt with all manner of dis
ionorable conduct, and now

Cillman is reported to have said

President's appointment of a

that Tillman will have Roose

Captain W. W. Lumpkin, com
nercial agent for the Georgia
-ailroad, has entered the race1
or the United States to oppose
senator Tillman. We are at a
oss to understand Lumpkin's
leventh-hour entry. It is .a fore
~one conclusion that Tillman
vill be re-elected, and the only
hing Lumpkin's candidacy can
to is to make a good excuse for
'illman to make a county can

honor are reluctant about going into a
scramble. It would be better if the
people, through their clubs would take
some steps looking towards urging the
right kind of men to become candi

people of this section are anxious for a
Senator, who will be an honor to the

This issue of The American announc
ing the passage through the Senate of
an excellent immigra.tion bill (S. 4403)
would not be complete without giving
to our readers the names of those Sen
ators who have done such effective
work and made such a hard fight for
the further regulation and restriction
of undesirable immigration into this
country. While the bill passed the
Senate withoiit any open opposition it
has taken a titanic struggle behind the
scenes on the part of these Senators to
win this victory against the foreign
steamship companies, the large em
ployers of cheap labor and other selfish
interests that would prostrate this
country's welfare for the sake of pe
The victry was won largely by cer
tain quiet, hard-working members of
the Senate Immigration Committee,
who burned the midnight oil studying
the question, discovering the evils and
inventing remedies for which they
have worked unceasingly. The names
of these men, who patriotically and
conscientiously seized the opportunity
offered to them by their being mem
bers of the Senate Immigration Com
mittee, should be written on the walls
of every Council hall in large shining
letters letters lest their valian work be
in the least forgotten or fail in the
least of appreciation in the future.
Here are the names of six of these
men, now in the United States Senate,
who have already and without solici
tation or promises of reward on our
part, raised their voices in the Senate
chamber to protest against immigra
tion abuses, who have worked hard in
and out of the committee preparing the
bill, who have labored hard for its con
sideration before that body and who
have struggled successfully on the floor
of the Senate to perfect and pass it.
They are Senators Dillingham, Lodge
Penrose,;Latimner, Simmons and Mc
Creary. There are others, but it is to
those Senators most of all that we owe
the passage of the Senate Immigration
B3ill on May 23, 1906. It was Senator
Dillingham that prepared the many se
lective provisions contained in that bill
which will go far toward reducing the
large number of defectives, degener
ates and dependents that are now be
ing dumped upon this country by profit
making steamship companies, often at
the instance and with the connivance
of foreign Goyernments and local of
ficials anxious to get rid of their insane
criminals and public charges. To Sen
ators Lodge, Simmons, Latimer and
Penrose is to be given the credit for
the Senate adopting the illiteracy test
for aliens, which is the really material
ly restrictive provision of the bill, and
which will sift out from 40 to 50 per
cent. of the present indiscriminate in
fux, or most of the undesirables.
To the Southern Senators, Simmons,
Latimer and McCreary, who are anx
ious that the South should get its share
of the desirable. immigrants, belongs
the entire credit for the increase in the
head money to five dollars and for the
establishment of a Division of Immi
gration which is expected to distribute
aliens to some extent and to help pre
vent their further concentration and
rongestion in the slums and sweat shops
of our large seaboard cities where they
are such a menace to our institutions,

be found in the so-called "ines or Lat
imer amendment," suggested by Sen
ator A. C. Latimer, of South Carolina.
The Senator from South Carolina point
ed out that foreign embarkation by.)
medical or other competent exawun'
in support of his amendment, Sen
ator Latimer showed on the floor of
the Senate May 23rd a circular issued
by one of the steamship companies in
structing their pursers to receive on
board and bring to this country in vio
lation of our laws dangerously conta
giously diseased person if the peison
deposited with the purser sufficient
funds to pay the fine and the expenses
of deportation in case of objection by
our immigrant inspectors. Although
the Senator's amendment was not
adopted in full, the bill incorporates in
Sections 19 and 9 a part of the amend
ment and forbids the steamship com
panies a fine of one hundred dollars for
bringing to this country the following
classes excluded by Section 2-danger
ous or contrgiously diseased aliens, idi
ots, feeble-minded persons, insane per
sons, and epileptics, provided the ex
istence of such disease or condition
might have been detected by means of
a competent medical examination by
the steamship officials at the point of
embarkation. It is difficult to under
stand, as Senator Latimer pointed out
on the floor of the Senate, ,vhy this
principle of a fine should not be ex
tended to all the classes of objection
able immigrants brought here con
trary to Section 2. Such a provision
would make the foreign steamship com
panies live up to our laws and save
many an alien a forlorn voyage across
the ocean. Last year thousands of poor
unfortunates were inveigled by the
steamship companies merely for the
sake of the passage money into mak
ing the trip only to be denied entrance
and deported. Since foreign govern
ments will not allow our officials to in
spect on the other side, and since a
slight examination on the part of a
steamship official would prevent the
heart-rending scenes of deportation,
and would result in turning back thous
ands of deficients and dependents who
run the gauntlet of our inspection, es
cape detection and gain access to this
country by some crook or appeal to
Washington, it does seem that the
amendment in its entirety ought to
have been adopted.
These are not the only Senators who
are with us in our efforts to secure
needed immigration legislation, but
these are the men who have manned
the guns. done the committee work,
made the speeches and managed and
secured the passage of this, the best
piece of limmigration legislation ever
considered by the Congress. Their
names deserve to go down in the his
tory of this country and should be rev
ered by all good patriotic citizens. Jun
iors of South Carolina do not forget
Senator Latimer for the able and ef
fective work which he has done on the
Senated Immigration Committee and
on the floor of the Senate in behalf of
our country, its welfare, and its citi
zenship; Juniors of North Carolina, do
not for get Senator Simmons; Juniors
of Kentucky, do not forget Senator Mc
Creary; Juniors of Massachusetts, do
not forget Senator Lodge, and .juniors
of New Hampshire. don't forget Sena
tor Dillingham. All these men have
rendered most valuable service in be
half of a cause very dear to us. We
stand, as The American has said be
fore, but if we are to have our prin
ciples prevail we must work for the
men who espouse our cause and who
work for our principles. And when we
find men who stand up for principles
in places of power and influence, let us
show our appreciation by doing every
thing we can to continue them in those
places of power and influence. Let us
no exchange the old tried and true for
the ne w and inexperienced.
