THE SENATOR HAS NOT LOST HIS
Senator Tillman, in an inter
view recently in Columbia, said
in reply to an inquiry from the
News and Courier's correspond
ent: "You can say, Pm for pro
hibition against any form of
license. * I don't know how
this Carey-Cothran law is work
ing, but I have told the people
of the State that if you can't
watch one big dispensary and
keep out stealing, you can't
watch thirty of them."
The Senator's absence from
the State has prevented him
f-om learning the sentiment of
the masses regarding the liquor
question, hence his guarded ex
pression, and the man of straw
set up by him to knock down.
-T'ra for prohibition against any
form of license." There is no
license issue being agitated, the
matter under consideration is
whether the legalized sale of
liquor shall continue in counties
that want it as now. or shall
there be a general prohibition
law. The Senator need not lose
any sleep over the possibility of
license, nor need he worry as to
which side is the strongest: we
can tell him, the majority vote
under present conditions is for a
general prohibition law, but he
is too late to lead it. The pro
cession is moving, and the ranks
are filled, if the distinguished
statesman wants a place in it he
must get on the southern end
while the column is moving
north, and we think we can tell
him something else, if he will
get into the prohibition ranks,
he will have to salute John L.
McLaurin, of Marlboro'. who
has always been a prohibitionist,
and if he enters politics again it
will be as a leader in the prohi
We have a great admiration
for Ex-Senator John L. Mc
Laurin, and sincerely believe he
has been unappreciated; his re
moral from politics was brought
on by the machinations of
shrewd and unscrupulous politi
cians, with the result, the State
and Union lost the valuable
services of a statesman, at the
sametime we do not agree with
him in his views upon tne liquor
question. He is for, and always
has been for a general prohibi
tion law, while we are for the
present liquor regulation, which
we believe is a greater promoter
of temperance than an indiffer
ently enforced prohibition law
can possibly be; at the sametime
th law gives the right of local
self-government, a principle not
given by a general prohibi
tion law. The right of local self
government is one of the richest
blessings of an American citizen,
and when a community is de
prived of this right by the
greater number far removed,
and not akin either by contiguity
or environment, it is deprived of
a principle the founders of
the government gave blood
and treasure to obtain.
While we admire McLaurin's
statesmanship, and his sincerity
in any cause he will espouse, we
cannot accept his views on the
liquor question as practical, but
we believe those holding similar
views are in a vast majority. It
will be a reversal of things to see
McLaurin in dhe lead in a cause
which the majority are clamor
ing for, and have Tillman bring
ing up the rear rank as a high
private, and this is what will be
the result if McLaurin re-enters
the political arena.
Senator Tillman's interview is
only a feeler thrown out to get
his soundings; ex-attorney gene
ral Bellinger threw out his days
ago, and when Senator Latimer
gets home, it will not be long
before he will put his ear to the
ground. The ways of politicians
are past finding out, and we ex
pect to see in the campaign next
summer men who have always
been advocates of liquor out
Herod-Herod in their attempts
to hoodwink the prohibition
voters of the State.
We are opposed to prohibition
in South Carolina as long as the
federal government .vill permit
liquor shipped into the State: at
the same time we favor throwing
around our liquor regulation
laws all the necessary elements
for the upbuilding of temperance,
sentiment, and we would advise
against the professions of men
now advocating prohibition who
have always been allied with the
other side. If the State is to
have prohibition, then in the
name of common sense have
none but true and tried Prohibi
tionists on guard, and let these
political fakirs seek other em
WE CAN(NOT AFFORD IT.
There has been a petition cir-:
culated and signed by citizenls of
Sandy~ Grove township askiig
Governor Ansel to order an e -
lection to cut Sandy- Grove
off from Clarendoin and annex it
in the bands of the board of reg
istration to ascertain if the sign
ers thereof are qualified electors
of that township. Sandy Grove
according to the petitioners, con
tains 22-65-100 square miles,
and if taken away from Claren
don there is no evidence that the
constitutional area would remain.
It is our opinion that Clarendon
has been cut to the quick already,
and it is to the interei-ts of all tax
payers to resist any urther cut
ting of area and taxable property.
There should be a limit to these
things. Williamsburg is a large
county and has no need for more
area, while Clarendon is a small
county and cannot spare any area
whatever. The county comuis
ioners should take this matter in
hand, and through their attorney
fight every movement made by
those who would carry any part
of Clarendon to another county.
We are convinced that very few
of the citizens of Sandy Grove
care anything about this new
movement; it is worked up by a
few. possibly interested parties,
and they have secured signatures
to the petition the signers not
giving the matter any consider
ation. and we are told that some
were misled and signed the paper
under a misapprehension.
We cannot see bow Governor
Ansel can possibly order the e
lection asked for, as the petiton
ers cannot present him with sat
isfactory evidence that there
would remain the area required
by the constitution. So far as we
know. no survey of the county
has ever been made. and there is
no map. Clarendon cannot af
ford to sit supinely by and per
mit itself to be hacked to pieces
to gratify the whims, and possi
bly the aspiration of a few indi
viduals, and we call upon our
county supervisor with his board
of Commissioners to protect the
