would consent for their Repre

merely to have the people to dis.

the taxpayers-of Cliarendon will
see the wisdom and the necessity
to demand of those who repre

THE LIQUOR PROBLEM.
Governor Ansel went before
the voters on a platform which
called for state-wide prohibition,
with the privilege to permit
counties wanting liqaor to vote
for its sale, and where a county
so 'votes, only one dispensary
shall be established, and that one
at the county seat. In our opin
ion, Governor Ansel's platform
cut very little figure in the last
election, the people voted for the
man and not his platform, but
the Governor will in his message
recommend his state-wide scheme
and it will be up to the general
assembly to act.
This liquor question is a nuis
ance at best, and the quicker the
people rid themselves of it the
better, therefore we would sug
gest that the general assembly.
fix a time to have an election in
1909, which is an off year, when
the question can be settled on its
merits. If the legislature orders
an election on the question of
Prohibition. say, in August of
of 1909, and it is carried, it will
give time for the counties to dis
pose of their stocks by January
following, and be out of business
when the legislature assembles,
'Mt aside from this, we should
Lavor referring the liquor ques
tion to the people for settlement
at a time when the matter would
not get mixed up with the per
sonnel of candidates. Then too,
if an election is ordered those
counties voting in favor of sale
should be permitted to sell and
take the entire responsibility for
its enforcement. This would be
We do not think it right for
Greenville to dictate a system
for Charleston, nor do we think
it fair for Charleston to be allow
ed to regulate affairs in Spartan
burg. If Pickens has a healthy
prohibition sentiment and does
not want liquor sold, it is no
reason to force Beaufort dry
when the sentiment is absolutely
opposed to prohibition. In the
mountainous range of counties
there is a much larger white pop
ulation than in the coast coun
ties. The principal patrons of
the dispensary is among the ne
groes, and many argue that it is
through the dispensary the ne
gro pays his proportion of taxes;
their voters also argue, labor
would soon become impossible did
not the negroes spend their mon
ey for liquor. But regardless of
these various views, there is a
whole lot to consider when the
question of prohibition is put up
to the voters at an election when
there is nothing else to' divert at
tention and votes.
If those who favor prohibition
will be reasonable, not go off on
impractical theories, the liquor
question can be solved in South
Carolina, and forever taken out
of our primaries when there are
candidates to be voted for.
We do not wish to be under
stood, as kicking a man when he
is down, but John Gary Evans'
Spartanburg friends not only did
some hard bluffing, but in
their desperation they went down
to sharp practice which proved
a boomerang against their man.
From the beginning we never
once believed Evans stood a
chance of winning, because it was
almost a certainty that Smith
[ would get into the second pri
mary and,our only fear was,that
[ Rhett would get into the second
instead of Evans, with Rhett in
the second race, Smith would
have had a foeman worthy of his
steel, but with Evans, it was easy
money-a cinch. The bold-faced
type-trick employed for Evans
hurt him many votes, but what
hurt him most was his undesira
bility. The people of South Car
olina will not have John Gary
Evans to represent them in the
United States senate and they
have said so four times. In our
opinion he never could have been
elected Governor, had it not been
under the most extraordinary cir
cumstances. In 1894, factional
lines were drawn as tight as wax,
John L. M. Irby was looking out
Ifor his seat in the United States
senate, and John Gary Evans
was a probable rival. Irby
shrewd politician, that he was,
Sconceived the idea to be rid of
IEvans by makring him Governor.
A conference was held, and what
becam"e known as the "Colleton
Iplan" was adopted. The Colleton
plan was a scheme to have a pri
mary in the Reform ranks. Hon.
James E. Tmndal1 of Clarendon,
Hon. W. H. Ellerbe, of Marion
and Hon. J. R. Harrison of
Greenville were alreadymention
ed as candidates. Irby knew that
to let Evans go into a general
primary with the gentlemen men
tioad he would be defeated,
therefore he took advantage of
the tense ractional feeling, and
secured the agreement of these
gentlemen to submit their
chances to a primary participated
in by Reformers only. Irby knew
the effect would be that manyi
Reformers would not approve
the scheme,and would refuse to
take part in it, but, the extreme
element would support any
thing and anybody with Tillman
and Irby's brand "Reformer."
The result was Evans secured
the nomination as Irby schemed.
He could not have been nomina
ted by the Democrats in a regu
lar primary. This has been dem
onstrated four times, and if he
runs before the people of the
State forty times the result will
be the same. The people have
no faith in John Gary -Evans.
IT TAKES TIME.
We are constantly being asked
"what is the prospect for getting
pay for the court house and jail
burned by federal troops during
the war between the States?"
When the matter was first
started we said then that Con
gressman Legare, the promoter
of the scheme will have a long
and hard fight to accomplish his
work, but if energy, push and
perseverance will bring resrults
he will do his level best. Con
gress meets in November, and
before it does meet we want to
be able to furnish Mr. Legare
with all of the data possible. He
can do nothing without informa
tion and of course mrust depend
upon those who have the neces
sary information to supply him.
Legare started this movement
to secure from the government
that which is justly due for the
depredations committed by its
soldiers, and we have no dloubt
he will, if it can be done at all,
secure pay from the government.
Legare has the reputation in
Washington of being able to get
almost anything he goes after in
the departments, and when he
secures an act of congress per
mitting Clarendon's claim to go
to the "court of claims" we have
hope of being reimbursed for the
destroyed property, but as we
have said before, it is a long,
hard tight, and it requires pa
tience, perseverance and labor.
Everything we can do to help1
Legare in this matter will be a
work of love.
DERN YOU I'M BEAT, HOPE YOU'LL
"Hope you will make good in
the senate" were the words John
Gary Evans expressed in his tele
gram of congratulations to E. D.
Smith. These words, under the
circumstances were in bad taste,
they sound like coming from a
peevish disappointed child when
another child snatches its candy.
Those who know Mr. Evans'
snappish disposition can appre
ciate how he felt when he ex
pressed the hope that Smith
"will make good in the senate."
Mr. Smith has an opportunity
which does not come to a. man
many times in a life-time, and
unless he-measures up to the ex
pectations of reasonable men, he
will be a sad disappointment, but
we predict he will "make good,"
so far as individual effort is con
cerned. He will wage a war
upon the great cotton exchange
of large cities. and do his utmost
to put a stop to gambling in fu
tures;if the government tabooes
future gambling, then the laws
of supply and demand will regu
late the price of agricultural
products. If Mr. Smith can se
cure a recognition of cotton by
the government, as it recognizes
whiskey,' there will be no trouble
in having warehouses conven
iently located, and then the cot
ton association can manage
the product so as to sup
ply the market as the raw
material is needed, instead of
glutting the market as under
We have every confidence in
the prospect for good, whole
some, and beneficial federal leg
islation which will affect the ag
ricultural masses in the south.
The recent primary was the
most remarkable ever held in
the State. Smith carried forty
out of forty-two counties, the
two he did not cprry were close,
and his majority over Evans is
30,935. A landslide, avalanche,
cyclone and tornado combined.
But the question is, will it con
vince Mr. Evans?
The recent order of Chief
Justice Pope staying the trial of
W. T. Jones. an alleged wife
murderer. is so unusual that it
has become the subject of much
comment, some of which are not
at all complimentary -to the
learned judge. The Hon. Geo.
Johnstone is one of the attor
neys for the defendant, which
seems to be the theory of those
who are opposed to the decree
of the Chief Justice.
While Hon. E. D. Smith re
tamns his rabbit foot he should
take the stump for Bryan and
Kern, especially should he do
this, since John Gary Evans'
Spartanburg manager, Mr. S C.
Little must leave the State as
the result of a campaign bet.
Little may go West, if he does,
he may undertake another fake*
+ticket scheme and ruin Bryan.
Smith go West where missionary
work is needed to secure votes
for Bryan and Kern.
The decision of the Federal
Court of Appeals will give a lit
tle longer lease of freedom to
the dispensary grafters, because
the cases against them will not
be brought to trial until the Su
preme Court passes upon the
~merits of the case. There are
a whole lot of lawyers as well
as laymen, who will now say,
"I told you so," who know as
much about the principles of law
as a hog knows about the science
of aerial navigation.
There is a fierce war being
waged upon Speaker Joseph
Cannon, which may result in
eliminating "Uncle Joe" from
the political arena. Bryan is
after him, so are the Pro hibi
tionists, and the Methodist
church, but "Uncle Joe" wallows
his tobacco about in his mouth
and bids the "hull" defiance. If
Bryan can succeed in breaking
into Cannon's influence in the
West, one of the main props of
republicanism will be shaken.
,The matter of taxation should
be the most important for the
new legislature to consider.
There is no doubt that undert
present conditions property is
very unequally assessed, alto
gether unjust and burdensome
to the smaller taxpayer. Some-(
thing should be done to bring(c
about a more equitable' assess
ment of property, real and per- t
sona], and thereby preventi tax
dodging on the part of those
who have much. The man who
can devise a scheme to bring I
about a just and lequitable assess-E
ment of property for taxation c
will be a benefactor.
The election in the State of
WMaine came off Monday, and of
ourse, was carried by the Re- ~
publicans, but at the same time ~
the Democrats made gains, which
s encouraging to the managers
>f the National Democratic cam
aign. A reduced majority in
Vermont and Maine means there
s a leaning towards Bryan and
Kern in the East. Besides this
mcouraging news, Herman Rid-'
ier the famous editor of the New
ork Staats Zeitung, the most
rominent German newspaper in
America, has returned from a
our of the West, and he says
Bryan has that section alive, and
1lmost certain. Washington, the H
~wo Dakotas and Nebraska are
~ssured, with an even chance in i,
owa, on account of factional di- 2
isons in the Republican ranks, 'w
Jhio, and Illinois. If what Edi
~or Ridder thinks is correct, Bry- d

nillions of dollars and become mil

and safest Life Insurance ever offered 0
to the people, at one-third of what
those robber companies charge for O
their polici-es, and thus put this wise
provision for our dependent ones
within the reach of all-the small
rarmer, the mechanie, the preacher.
the teacher,. as well as the planter,
the merchat, the manufacturer and

ff every speculativ6 feature of Life -
Insurance and charging its patrons a
)nly what is actually necessary to

agents are paid no salaries, but each
re allowed s, moderate commission

gets what he would make at any

nothing he gets nothing.
