The recent interviews relating
to the liquor question in this
State which have appeared it:
Columbia newspapers would in
dicate that the matter of liquoi
control is as much unsettled now
as it was before the passage of
the Carey-Cothran law, and we
agree with the Representative
from Anderson, when he con
tends that it would be unfair
now for the Prohibition element
to join with the defeated State
dispensaryites to wipe out the
county dispensaries. The Carey
Cothran law could not have
been enacted without the aid of
the prohibition element. and
now that they aided in securing
a law that wili give the people
the choice, in their respective
counties to say whether or not
liquor can be sold, should be
enough for the present, at least
until the new liquor regulation
has been sufficiently tested tc
ascertain whether in its practi
cal operation, it is any better for
the public good than the old
It is our judgment the, prohi
bitionists will make a mistake if
they form an alliance with the
former State dispensaryites,
they may succeed in securing
the repeal of the Carey-Cothran
Act, and the enactment of a
State prohibition law, but it
c'an only be a temporary suc
ceess, and when the pendulum
swings the other way, as it will
do when a State prohibition law
is found impracticable, then con
ditions will be worse than they
have ever been.
Under the present law those
counties having a healthy pro
hitition sentiment can vote out
the dispensaries if they choose,
and be responsible for the en
forcment of the law, and no ob
jection is raised, but when it
comes to forcing counties that
have no orohibitiori sentiment, tc
be deprived of the revenue that
comes from the liquor traffic
there is objection, because those
people are made to submit to the
traffic in liquor and its results,
and the revenue goes elsewhere
In our judgment the liquoi
regulation laws in this State are
good enough, and we would ad
vise to let well enough alone.
The appointment of Capt. Johr
G. Capers to the office of coim
missioner of internal revenue a1
Washington is gratifying to hu
friends, regardless of party:
who have always felt the in
justice done trie man. .when his
enemies succeeded in preventing
his reappointment to the office oJ
district attorney, an office he
filled with exceptional ability.
The office of commissioner oJ
internal revenue is one of the
most important at the disposal
of the President. it not only re
quires an able lawyer, but a
careful business man, and the
selection of Capers for this im
portant trust is a very high com
pliment, as it carries with it the
acknowledgment of his higi
character and splendid ability.
The appointment is only tern
porary, as we understand it, bui
the fact of his being selected as
the head of su-ch an importan1
branch of the government where
millions of dollars are involved
places him when he retires, in
the foremost rank among those
of his profession, and where his
services will be in demand by
the large interests having busi
ness with the r-evenue depart

On the death of Senator John
T. Morgan of Alabama, whc
died in Washington last night,
one of the most notable figures
that.- ever graced the United
States Senate was removed. He
served the State of Alabama in
the Senate for thirty years and
was regarded as one of the lead
ers in that body. As a debater
of great questions he had no su
perior, and few equals.
Tihe members of tile South
Carolmna Press Association will
be at the Isle of Palms the rest
of this week, and those ill charge
of the entertaining feature are
going to give the craft -a good
time. When the newspaper
folks gets together away from
home, there is no suspicion of
poverty, for everybody is ricb
and happy as long as free trans.
portation and reduced rates hold
out. There is no place on eatrtl:
better suited for a jolly good
time than the Isle of Palms, and
if we had our way it would be

Fitz Hugh McMaster, circula
tion manager of the Columbia
State sailed yesterday from New
York for Europe. How did he

Never mind. we allwish him a
safe and a pleasant journey. We
cannot go to Europe. but we can
go to the Isle of Palms.
The News and Courier has
!!(riven out an assignment for its
'Parliment of the Press." and
placed THE TIES editor in the
embarassing position of express
ing his opinion of the Columbia
ba'seball team. This is not fair.
because THE TDI.ES editor goes
to Columbia occasionally and
his opinion may invite the ire of
some of the capitol city fans.
We think Charleston had better
have a care. Columbia has
changed its management, and
started off last Monday i- tak
ing one from Savannah, while
Charleston on the same day had
to submit to a "shut-out" from
Augnsta. and as a result had to
step back to allow Macon to ad
vance. If "Bugs" Raymond
lingers long in Chicago, when
he returns to the city he will
find his team struggling with
Savannah for the celler chain
pionship. We know how these
things turn out from last year's
experience with players recom
mended to us as 'cracker-jacks.
The general assembly of South
Carolina is largely made up of
the legal profession. and now
since the decision of a court
against the constitutionality of
the agricultural labor contract
law: it would be well for some of
the lawyers to get together and
devise a bill to be enacted into
law that will afford protection to
employers of labor. We do not
think the declaring unconstitu
tional the present law will create
the confusion in labor as was at
firstsupposed, and one reason
for it is, that on account of the
many losses last year from the
breach of these contracts the
farmers have been more careful
in their advances, and have de
clined to permit the triffling
class to get ahead of their wages,
with the result, that the laborer
not being overwhelmed in debt
had nothing to induce him to de
sert his employer. There is no
doubt of the necessity of a law to
rotect labor, but it should not
be one-sided.- The employee as
well as the employer should be
equally protected, and if out of
the -minds of some of our legis
lators there can be evolved a
labor contract law that will be
upheld by the courts, a great
service will be rendered.
President Roosevelt was the
speaker at Jamestown last Mon
day. "Georgia Day." and he de
livered his address in the Geor
gia State building, which is a
reproduction, or-areplica of the
home of the President's grand
father on his )nother's side. The
President spoke feelingly of the
compliment paid him by the
State of Georgia, and then pro
ceeded to recite the splendid
history of that State. He said
"I ala proud, indeed, of my
Georgian ancestry, and of the
fact that my grandfather's
grandfathier, Archibald Bulloch,
ias the first governor." The
entire speech was a magnificient
deliverence of patriotic utter
ances and a thorough knowledge
of the country's progress.
We iook to see some of our
Southern newspapers make ad
verse criticism of.the President's
declarations of pride in his
Southern ancestry and throw up
to him some of his political ap.
pointments and other oificial
acts. If president Roosevelt
escapes thx criticism of South
ern pens on this occasion it will
be the first time in our recollec
tion. His address touched upon
the problems of the day, and he
was very explicit in his views
on economic and social questions.
The material progress of the
country in the last quarter of a
century. He congratulated the
people of the South in their
efforts to stamp out the evil of
child labor in the factories, and
their work along educational
lines, immigration and other
Washington, June. --If the
opinion of leading democrats
dropping into Washing from
time to time count for anything
a plank demanding the initiative
and referendum will not be in
corporated in the next platform
of the national democracy. The
proposition to insert such a
plank in the platform is advo
cated only by those who former
ly aifiliated with the Populist
party. No genuine democrat,
whether from the South, North.
East or West, has yet endorsed
his plan, and it can be safely
said that the party will not be
menaced by-such an issue in the
next presidential election.
The strongest protests against
the incorporation of such a
plank in the democratic plat
form have come from the South.
Southern democrats realize the
danger of such a form of gov
ernment more fully than those
of any other section, and as the
convention will be controlled by
the representatives of that sec
tion, it can be asserted in all
conidnce that the platform
will be mitius that piece of Pop
Southern democrats point out
that had initiative and referen
dum prevailed in 1891. when the
imquitous Force Bill was being
considered by congress, theC
South would not today be enjoy
ing the blessings of~ white su
prem acy. The i-epubliican party,
which controlled congress at the
for the negro rote, would have
for political reasons. if for no
other. submitted the question to
the people, and the North being
the stronger in votes, the same
would have been approved at
the polls, and Federal bayonets
would be in the South today to
see that the negro be not denied
the privilege of the ballot.
It is also claimed that should
initiative and referendum pre
vail. congress, upon the petition
of fifteen per cent. of the male
citizens of the country, would
be compelled to initiate and re
for to the people for adoption
any law that might appeal to
tie whims and fancies of the pe
titioner. ,.%or example, should
the negroes of the country Pe.
tition congress to initiate a law
to reduce representation of the
Southern states in congress be
cause of the disfranchisement of
the negro, that body would be
compelled to refer such a law to
the people for apprOval. and
there would be little doubt of its
adoption, as the repubiican
voters of the North and West
are always ready to seize an op
portunity to deal the South a
If the sentiment today is an
indication of democratic tenden
ev. the paramount plank in the
n'ext democratic platform will be
tariff revision. The platform
will contain no declaration ob
noxious to the views of any good
democrat: it will be framed along
lines to meet the views of all
factions of the party. Initiative
and referendum. government
ownership of railroads. and oth
er Populistic items will be cast
aside. The platform will be an
old time democratic expression
of the true democratic faith, and
the party once more united, as
it would be under such a condi
tior, would march to one more
great and glorious victory.

On Tuesday, the 4th, the S.

and "et" up the locals to the
tune of 16 to 0. . It couldn't have

into possession of a bicycle on last
Saturday in a: peculiar manner,
about noon a strange colored
man rode a very good looking
wheel into town, coming from
towards Sumter, and was offer

sojourn here he left for Rimini.
After he had gotten about half a
mile out of town, a man heard of
the bicycle being offered for sale
so cheap, got Mr. Jenkinson to
ride down the railroad and see
if he could overtake the bicycle
rider. about three miles from
town Mr. Jeukinson got close
