The County of Kershaw voted
out the dispensary by less than
ninety majority, and the election
is to be contested. If the vote
was fairly taken the decision
should be allowed to stand with
out contest, although we believe
the majority was in error in
voting out the county dispen
saries. The prime mover in the
opposition to the county dispen
saries was not prompted by
motives for the public good, but
rather from spleen,,because of
being defeated in the legislature
in his fight to save the State dis
pensary, and thereby force upon
the people that concern after they
had repudiated it at the polls.
Richards was the leader of the
State dispensary forces, and
made a most stubborn fight.
so zealous was he. it was
stron!glv intimated upon the
floor of the House that he re
sorted to unfair tacties. The in
cident called forth a lot of ex
planations which did not ex
plain either. This same State
dispensary leader when he reail
zed he was defeated, tried
to trick the Prohibitionists
by going into their camp to
pass a prohibition bill up
up to the Senate where it would
not go through. and thus save
"the old stench pile" for another
year: frustrated at every move,
he went home, and led a prohi
bition movement .in Kershaw
and succeeded with the aid of
some sincere Prohibitionists in
driving out of Kershaw County,
the lawful sale of liquor. Now
that his revenge is gratitied it is
up to him to aid the Prohibi
tionists in the enforcement of
the law, and make that county
as dry as a powder horn. But
will Richards do it-? We do not
believe he will.
The celebrated "Bugs" Ray
mond, Charleston's wonder, has
been sold to St. Louis, but will
remain with the "Gulls" unti]
the season closes. "Bugs" goes
nearer the stream that made
Mil ~vaukee famous.
The downfall of Rev. C. M.
Billings at Blackville is very
much deplored by the people of
this county, where he served as
pastor of several churches, and
was esteemed very highly for
his piety. The sympathy of all
of us go out to~his heart crush
Rev. Len G. Broughton of
Atlanta in a sermon in Spartan
burg said "Any man who smokes
cigarettes ten years will lie ox
steal." Now what do you think
of that? Wonder if this hot air
artist has any conception of
what he is handing out to intel
It is now said that Taft is out
of the running, and that his
boom has been punctured. We
do not believe it. Taft will be
the next presidential nominee of
the Republican party, and we
also believe Bryan will be the
next presidential nominee of the
Democratic party. Both are
good men, but Taft will win.
The News and Courier. of yes
terday says, "the fate of the
assassins in Lexington county
will be watched with especial
interest." -4Vhy so? Because a
Lexington jury turned loose one
assassin is no reason to think all
assassins are safe in that county,
and besides the assassins of
Mabus are not nephews of a
United States Senator, which of
course makes a difference.
The ministers in Charleston
are making war on lawlessness
in that city, and their guns seem
to be aimed principally at liquor
selling. There is no doubt that
liquor is illegally sold in Char
leston. and in our opinion, it will
always be illegally sold in that
city as long as the government is
engaged in a business that is
prohibited to individuals. These
good men who are proclaiming
lawlessness need to do mission
ary wvork, among the lawmakers
and voters, they might urge
a change in our State Con
stitution so that municipali
ties can have the right to
frame laws which are best suited
to their coiditions and eviron
ments, and which they can en
force respect for. It is folly to
think that the people of a sea
port city can be governed by
campmeeting regulations, they
have their native customs, these
are bred in them, and words
laid down in a statute, which
oppose these customs, are a
mockery. We sincerely believe
that these good men who are
now painting dark pictures of
Charleston's lawlessness, would
do well to give their aid toward
securing legislation which can
be enforced, and which will be
so respected by all classes that
even the church need not be
Bishop Elison Capers is criti

North Carolina. The latest re
Dort from his bedside indicates

The eyes of the reading worMi
are upon the trial now going on
at Boise. Idaho. Wma. D. Hay
wood one of the officers of Fed
eration of Miners is charged
with being in a conspiracy that
resulted in the . assassination of
Governor' Steunenberg. The
evidence presented by the State
is very strong, but based princi
pally upon the testimony o
Harry Orchard. a confessed too
of Haywood. This evidence is
backed up by the testimony oi
others. The State has closed
and the defense has just begun.
The outlook now is that th(
trial will continue for the next
two months and result in an ac
quittal. The labor organizations
in the West are strongly organ
ized. and, in our opinion, juror,
would be afraid to convict.

ITHE IDEAL HOME ENTERTAINER.
The Edison Phonograph solves the entertainment
problem. This clear, rich-toned instrument is. a source
Sof entertainment that is never failing and nerve-stirring.
SClassical musiC or rag-time, songs or marches ministrels.
or orchestras, or funny stories, are sure to be appreci
ated by all who cross your threshold.
Without the Phonorgraph none except trained musi
cians can can hear the music they like sung or played as
they- like it. The Phonograph sings as sweetly and
clearly as the cultured singer and renders perfectly the
tones of the various instruments'of orchestras and bands
in all their 'delicate harmonies. With the Phonograph
you can make up your own programs; you may .hear
what you please as often as you please.
You Requires No Skill
Yucan master its operation in five minutes. Perhaps there is a piece of music that you ha~
heard, the half-learned melody of which haunts you; or maybe there is something that youn particL
larly want o hear. Your Phonograph will give it to you as it should be sung or played, until you hav'
learned it---if you desire---and always just as clearly and sweetly as at the first time.
The Phionograph is a most unselfish entertainer: it has something for all, young or old. When
the wife is warned after a day's household cares, and the children tire of play, this charming en-ts~
taner will rest the one and quiet the other. It will play for a dance, take you to the theatre, to thei
ministrels or a Wagnerian Opera, play rag-time, sing songs that touch the heart, and play marches:
that rouse the soul---all this between supper and bed time.
