THEY MUST PAY FOR THE BONDS.
The scheme to make Lake City
a county seat is being actively
pressed, but it has a rival in
Olanta. If Rutledge county is
formed, then Beulah county with
Olanta as a county seat is nil. We
have no preference in the two
places, but it does strike us that
if Clarendon is to lose any por
tion of the Salem section it must
be Sandy Grove township, and
the residents thereof would be
better off to go into Rutledge,
however, we caution the citizens
of Sandy Grove to be not deceived
by some of the falacious state
ments now being made to induce
votes for the new county. Clar
eadon has taken upon herself a
large bonded indebtedness, 870, -
000, and Sandy Grove township
wLether it leaves Clarendon, or
remains will have to pay its pro
portion. It is urged by some that
if the people of Sandy Grove
township will vote for the new
county they will escape taxation
for Clarendon's bonds. It is not
true, but on the other hand, if
they vote themselves into a new
county they will not only have
to pay their proportion on Clar
endon's bonds, they will also
have to bear their proportion of
the expense fora new court house,
jail and other public buildings.
In other words they will be
double taxed. The Rutledge
county advocates claim that Lake
City will contribute enough mon
ey to build a court house and jail,
we do nQt believe anything of the
sort, other to -ns have made sim
ilar promises, but so far as we
know, the promise failed immed
iately after the new county was
created. There is the new coun
ty of Calhoun, all manner of
promises were made by the town
of St. Matthews, the county was
created, St. Matthews became
'the county seat, and as yet no
court horuse has been built and
--will not be built, until the coun
ty is bonded to raise the money.
If the Lake City or Olanta pee
pie are in earnest to have their
towns the county seats let them
deposit not less than $50,000 in
trust in some bank, conditioned
upon the failure to secure the
county seat. th~e money to be re
funded. but if the county seat is
secured, this $50,000 be expend
ed in the necessary public build
ings, if this is done. it will end
the new county agitation.
The people of Sandy Grove
bold the key to the situation.
they can and should demand re
lief from any taxation for public
buildings in a new county, and
too, they should have a say so in
the character of public buildings
to go up, because if the project
ors of the new county scheme de
siring to speculate on Lake City
property find they must promise
to build a court house and jail,
unless the character of buildings
are specified, they can put up in
expensive shacks, and later on
after they have the Sandy Grov
ers in their trap, by force of num
bers, force upon them a heavy
bond issue to erect first class
Be not deceived by the tempt
ing promises ot the new county
aavocates. We have been told
that a prominent citizen of Sandy
Grove, now a warm supporter of
- Rutledge county, has been prom
ised the office of Clerk of Court,
just how many others in that
township have been promised
the public offices we do not know,
but we do know that the goods
caiinot be delivered, because the
county offices have to be voted
for, and no man or set of men can
control the votes of a people.
We do not want Clarendon to
become dismem! :ed, but if it is
to be then let those people in
Sandy Grove understand that
when they vote themselves out
of Clarendon they do not escape
taxation for Clarendon's $70,000
NOTHING CONTAINING ALCOHOI..
The supreme court of Mississ
ippi has declared that no bever
age can be sold in that state which
contains any percentage what
ever of alcohol. The purpose of
the decision is to knock out the
"near beer" saloons. The effect
if strictly enforced will be
to knock out ice cream fes
tivals, donation parties, char
ity dinners, and all of the other
schemes to raise money for ben
evolent purposes because all the
flavorings contain alcohol, and
which are frequently used as a
beverage whether so sold or not.
If the sale of essence of lemon
which contains a larger per cent
age of alcohol than does whiskey,
can be sold lawfully when not
sold as a beyerage, then whiskey
can also be sold, if the purchaser
does not inform the seller it is to
be used as a beverage. Then if
whiskey can be sold but not for
beverage purposes, the sellers of
whiskey will post notices in their
shops which will read "whiskey
sold here, but not to be used as
have seen so far. touch the meat
of the auestion. neither do they
settle aniything. This Mississippi
decision merely prohibits the sale
of any beverage containing alco
hol, now the question is what is
a beverage? All of the flavoring
extracts and essences used in the
household contain alcohol, are
they debarred by the decision?
While they are not standard bev
erages such as whiskey, wine
and beer, they are fast becoming
beverages. because of the large
proportion of alcohol in them.
Jamaicaginger, paregoric, sooth
ing syrup, Chamberlain's colic
cure, and the several remedies
that were put on the market by
the late.Dr. Baer, are household
remedies; we understand they all
contain a heavy per centage of
alcohol, and it is known many of
these remedies are being used as
substitutes for liquor. It does
strike us, that in rendering a de
cision the courts should make
themselves clear that the people
who are expected to respect the
law will know just what law they
are expected to obey.
As it is, cases are taken to the
courts on some particular point,
which does not effect the merits
of the question as a whole. and
when that point is decided, all
the other features of the question
remain for the lawyers to go be
fore the courts again and again.
The wheels oi justice will only
turn when greased.
What we want to see, and this
desire is in the interest of law,
order and temperance, a case
taken into the courts covering
every feature, and a decision ren
dered that will settle once and
for all the status of the liquor
WORK FOR TILLMAN AND SMITH.
The senators representing'
southern interests, will now have
their attention occupied to keep
cotton bagging and ties from hav
ing a tariff placed upon them. If
congress puts a tariff on bagging
and ties, it meais, according to
Senator Bacon, a cost of 85,000,
000 to the farmers of the South.
Here is where Senators Till
man and Smith should get busy,
they should let the Republicans
understand that unless these ar
ticles of necessity to the South
are freed from tariff, they pro
pose to prolong the fight, if it
takes all summer.
It is our opinion that any com
promise which will release the
tariff-clutches from our bagging
and ties, will be heartily approv
ed by the southern people.
While we may expect much
from Senator Tillman, because
he is a hard fighter when he gets
his dander up, more must be ex
pected from Senator Smith on
this subject, because the matter
of growing and marketing cotton
has been a specialty with him
many years, and we think we can
safely say he is a standard auth
ority on the subject. Therefore
when he rises in the senate to op
pose'a tariff on bagging and ties,
he speaks with authority, and all
fair minded men who are not tied
hand and foot to a party policy,
but who are honestly endeavor
ing to secure the country's best
interests will give our junior
senator's arguments against a
tariff on bagging and ties much

Gage, of the Sixth Circuit, tc
the graduating class of the Soutt

ought to be printed as a sort o:

would amend by adding to thE
suggestion, that these tex1
books be sold and the proceeds

The investigation now going
on in Columbia begins to havE
the appearance of something

the amount of criminal evidencE
there has so far been up-rooted
against the officials of the form
er State dispensary. Not only
has it been conclusively prover
that these State officers betrayed
a trust reposed in them, but thE
houses they dealt with are equal
ly guilty of fraud and bribery.
The evidence so far brought oul
out would land these officers it
the penitentiary in any othei
State, what will it do here?
With due respect to His Hono2
Judge Gage we cannot agree witi
him in directing the clerk oi
court not to issue pay certificates
to such witnesses who are bound
over to attend court, and whet
they go bAore the grand jury
they know nothing about thE
case. It is not the fault of thE
witness, the Magistrate should
be held accountable, but once a
witness has been bound over, and
he appears the county owes him
his per diem and mileage, thE
same as if he turned out to be a
material witness, and well that
this is so, because if a man cat
be forced to attend court, and his
pay depends upon his knowledgE
of the case, the temptation tc
"know somrething" is too great.
We heartily agree with Sena
tor Tillman, the politicians are
trying to ruin Clemson College.
It may be .that some reforms are
needed in the institution, but we
doubt the wisdom of changing
its present status. The purpose
for which the college was started
bas not been .faithfully carried
out-an agricultural college
but instead of making agricul
nre its main feature, that par
ticular branch is of minor con
sideration and other professions
have been pushed. Notwith
standing this, it is a fine school,
it is doing much good, it supplies
sxperts for mining and electric
sgineering, it supplies archi
tects, railroad and factory build
rs, lawyers, doctors, soldiers
and some few farmers. It is sup
ported largely by the farmers,
and the cost of its maintainence
is immense, were it under politi
3al control, the politicians would
ruin it, fortunately there are life
brustees who hold the balance
f power, thus insuring safety.
We hope those in control will
put an end to the annual rows,
but that they will not permit its
;overnment to get away from
the present control.
