WILL PRORIBITION PROMOTE TEMPER
ANCE IN CLARENDON CO!NTYt
Since the last issue of THE
TIMES in which we undertook to
lay before the voters our reasons
for thinking unwise to have an
election in Clarendon to abolish
the dispensary, a number of
thoughtful men, and who are
not addicted to drink habit have
expressed to us their approval
of our views, which of course is
gratifying, but there are some
good men also who differ, in fact
one of them said to us "you
have fired the first gun eh?" We
presume he meant to imply that
the agitation was started by our
editorial. If this is what he did
mean, he is mistaken. Those
wishing to have an election had
petitions in circulation for some
time before the editorial was
written, and for all- we know
these petitions were being cir
culated before we knew of it at
all, therefore the "first gun"
was not fired by us, but the first
public expression of disapproval
came from this scource.
We want it understood that in
the voicing of our views through
ahese columns we endeavor to
be open, and sincere. If there
is a matter of public interest,
and we feel competent to reach
a conclusion we do not hesitate
to do so and give those conclu
sions to the public. In doing
this we concede that others have
the same right to reach an oppo
site conclusion, and be perfectly
sincere; we respect those who
are sincere in differing with us,
and believe if they are not fan
atics they respect us for our
open candor. The matter now
being agitated is one which has
two sides like all other questions
of consequence, and in the dis
cusiion of this problem, men of
minds worth arguing with will
-try to convince by reason, and
not by intolerance. Is prohi
bition necessarily temperance?
Will a prohibition law in Claren
don county, with liquor selling
in Sumter and Williamsburg
Wili-not prohibition in Clar
endon and liquor selling in the
adjoining counties have the
effect of leaving the evil effects
of drink in Clarendon, and send
to the adjoining counties the
revenue with which we are now
getting to pay the expenses of
the government to keep down~
the evils resulting from 11
quor drinking? If Clarendon
county receives from the liquor
traffic for town. county and
schools $12000, would not most
of this amount go to Sumter and
Williamsburg if our dispensary
is abolished, and their's is al
lowed to ?emain?.
If we vote out this $12000 in
come, and it is necessary for us
to have it to run our town, coun
ty and schools, must not the
amount be made up from addi
tional taxation? If then one
mill will only raise about $3000
will it not take four mills to
raise the $12000 to make up that
which we vote out by abolishin g
These are questions worth con
sidering bath from a moral and
a business standpoint. If on
account of the close proximity of
Sumter and Williamsburg the
consumption of liquor will not
be appreciably reduced, but on
the other hand the consumption
will be about the same, we can
not see the wisdom in cutting
ourselves off from the revenue
that aids us in our taxation.There
is no doubt in our mind that
much of the crime committed
can be attributed to liquor, true,
crime is committed by men and
women who know not the taste
of liquor, but crime is committed
and the drinking of . liquor gets
The country cannot condone
crime and leave it go unpunish
ed, or at least make the effort to
punish it, and therefor~e it is
necessary that we have courts
and officers, and to pay the ex
penses of these, the people must
be taxed. If we are going to cut
off a large source of our revenue
which goes to pay the expenses
of our courts for protection
against crime, we must make up
our minds to go down deeper
into our pockets for this ex
pense, because the same agency
or crime producer has not been
removed far enough away to
effect us materially in lessening
the consumption, ani therefore
we do not see wherein prohibi
tion in Clarendon can amount to
more than a farce, with dispen
saries in the other counties in
reach, and agents coming here
regularly soliciting orders for
liquor concerns outside of the
State, and also, local agents tak
ing orders for concerns outside
of the State.
There are people advocating
the abolishing of the dispensary
here, whose motives we cannot
question, because we know they
are sincere, but in our huzbleh
judgment we cannot see as they'
do. We are opposed to Claren
Sumter and Williamsburg are
permitted to remain open, and,
personally we are opposed to
State prohibition while the fed
eral government permits liquor
being shipped here, but while
we are frank to tell our readers
we are personally opposed to
prohibition, yet, if in our next
primary election the question of
prohibition for the State were
submitted and carried affirma
tively in this county, as a repre
sentative of the people we would
regard it an instruction and feel
bound to vote accordingly. Now,
therefore we propose that in
stead of petitioning for an elec
tion this year, let the executive
committee provide that the
question of State prohibition
or no State prohibition be printed
on the primary county ticket
for the legislature be pledged to
abide the result. If this is done,
the writer will be as rauch
pledged as those elected. in the
If we are to have prohibition
let it be State wide, and not have
a county sapped of its trade and
revenue by the adjoining coun
ties that take our money and
give us in return all of the evil
with its resultant expense that

A NOBLE SERVICE RENDERED.
There appeared in the Colum
bia State an advertisment for
girls to learn the show business
worded in such a manner as to
attract the attention of girls in
clined to be gay. A male sub
scriber looked upon the adver
tisment with suspicion, and di
rected his suspicions to the edi
tor of the State, whereupon the
matter was placed into the hands
of Mr. Jno. T. Meehan, a inem
ber of the staff for investigation,
which resulted in calling into
service Postoffice Inspector
Gregory. Arrangements were
soon made to entrap the villian;
a girl was secured to play her
part who went to the meeting
place. as directed by the officer,
who with the reporter, concealed
themselves in such a manner
that all could be heard between
the parties. The game worked
well, the trap was set, and
George A. Bristow, formerly of
Darlington a man of family walk
ed into it, and was captured. A
splendid piece of work for the
Columbia State, and better still
for the general public. Bristow
was lodged in jail and will have
to faco a jury in the United
States court on the charge of
using the mails for fraudulent
The story as written in the
State ought to be read by every
girl in the country that they
may be warned against the
machinations of evil men and
women. We have no doubt but
that Bristow is an agent whose
business it is to lure young girls
to their ruin, and men of his
stamp should be dealt with
severely. In the large cities
the "white slave" t-rade is com
mon, but in the South it is
scarcely known, this is the first
instance where anythin~g which
points in that direction has been
exposed and too much credit can
not be given those who have
rendered this great service. We
publish the full story in another
column, and we urge young
girls not to be too quick to
answer advertisments they see
in the papers, if one should at
tract them, it would be wise to
direct an inquiry to the editor,
and if it is a reputable journal,
the answer may be relied upon.
It took shrewd detective work
to run down the scoundrel, es
pecially since it required a girl
of about 17 years old to act as
the decoy, fortunately, one who
had drank the bitter dregs of
degredation brought on by trust
ing a villian, was found and she,
for the sake of others gave her
aid in the exposition of a man
that no punishment can be too

The new county agitation
which proposes to make Lake
City the county seat, will have a
formidable competitor in John
sonville, which is contended to
be a more logical location. The
Lake City advocates have stand
ing the tempting offer of a plot
of land, some distance from the
business section, which if ac
cepted and the court house is
located upon it, the owner of the
property hopes to profit by the
building up around the court
house, which is all right, pro
viding the Johnsonville people
do not see Lake City and raise
them by not only giving the plot
of land, but actually building the
court house. The Johnsonville
folks have a magnificient section
of country and they expect to
soon have a railroad, all of
which will make the enterprising
citizens of Lake City hustle.

The prohibition movement in
this county is well under way
and signatures to petitions are
easily secured. The question
which puzzles us is, are the
signers to these petitions really
seeking to make Clarendon a dry
county, or are they signing be
cause they they haven't the
manliness to refuse when a good
man or woman makes the re
quest of them. We had one
man to tell us that he signed a
petition, not because he favored
the proposition of making Clar
endon dry, while the surround
ing counties are wet, but he
just hated to refuse Mr.-who
presented the petition to him.
If this man in his judgment
thinks it a mistake to make
Clarendon dry, while the sur
roundings counties are wet, he
should have declined to sign the
petition, and if he desired to do
so, he could have respectfully
assigned his reason for declin
ing. Had he done so, the party
presenting the petition to him
would have given him credit for

CRAZED WITH WEALTH.
Mad Days in Melbourne When the
Gold Fever Was Raging.
Gold threatened to become as comn
mon as silver in the days of Solomon.
In one year ?12,600,000, in eight years
?5000.000, were won. Some men at
Golden Point made as much as ?400
each a day. Another exceptionally
lucky party unearthed thirty-four
pounds of gold in one day. No wonder
that such "pockets" were termed "jew
elers' shops!" Occasionally a nugget
worth ?10,000 was unearthed. The re
sult of this sudden influx of wealth,
almost without labor and with risks
which are infinitesimal as compared
with Klondike, was the temporary de
moralization of the population. Mel
bourne in the height of the gold fever
has been described by one who knew
it well as "a fevered, drunken, deliri
ous pendemonium." The lucky ones
-and there were thousands of them

Some of their fantastic tricks would
scarcely be credited were they not at
tested by witnesses still living. The
game of ninepins, we are told, was
played with bottles of champagne, for
which he who broke the least had to
pay. Dozens of the same costly wine
were emptied into tubs and drunk
from tin pannikins, spirits and beer
being added to give "body" to the bev
erage. One man, in imitation or Calig
ula, shod his horse with gold. Sand
wiches made of bank notes were de
voured. Silver wrapped up in bank
notes was thrown to popular actresses
instead of flowers. In fact; money wvas
so plentiful that the reckless diggers
could not "knock it down" fast enough.
They thought they had only to dig a
few feet In the earth to get plenty
more, and for a time it almost seemed
as if this were so. Such were some of

Youth, Manhood, Old Age.
The life journey may roughly be di
vided into three stages, each lasting
about twenty-five years. Scientifically
speaking, one is a "ytath" until he Is
twenty-five, a "man" from twenty-five
to fifty or fifty-five, after which "old
age" begins. During the first period
the rule is growth, during the second
equilibrium, during the third decline.
In the first repair exceeds destruction,
in the second the repair and destruc
tion balance each other, while in the
third destruction exceeds repah-r. From
twenty-five to fifty-five a man should
be at his best, but after that time he
begins to lose ground; the machinery
is running down, however slowly and
imperceptibly it may be. until around
about seventy or seventy-five the "old
age" is visible even to the dullest eye.
