The Clarendon Good lRoads Associa
tion was formerly organized last Satur
day with the election of the following
officers: Dr. C. 13. Geiger, president:
.lames E. Kelley, vice-president: and T.
M. Wells. secretary and treasurer. The
president was authorized to appoint one
man in each township as an executive
committee. There were several plans
discussed and a number of suggestions
made with regard to the building up oil
the public highways, and the financial
management of the county. There is no
question about the advisibility of an or
ganization of this character and we be
lieve if the people generally will co-op-;
erate with an organization of this kind
it will result in great good. Everybody
favors good roads but they can only be
secured by spending money on them.
THE TMiES is in thorough accord with
any movement which has for its purpose
the bailding up of our public highways
and freely offers its columns to have the
matters connected therewith placed be
fore the people.
Revenne OfMcers After Soft Drinks.
Two men representing themselves as
revenue officers were in Manning iast
Monday morning and called upon Mr.
Jim Stukes. who conducts a fruit stand
next door to the express office, they
informed Mr. Stukes the beverage lie
was selling labeled "non-alcoholic" put
up by the Germania Brewing Comn Iny
was liable to the internal revenue tax.
and that he must pay 30 for the stuff
already sold. Mr. Stukes told them he
was innocent of any wrng doing as he
bought the beverage with a guarantee
from the Germania Brewing Company
that it contained no alcohol, and was
not liable to the revenue tax. They said r
he would have to pay anywar for the
stuff already sold, even if he did discon- d
Mr. Stukes says these men did not
show any authority that they were rev
enue officers. but all the same he does P
not propose to take any chances as it
is not his intention to violate the law.
he therefore telegraphed to the concern

the revenue ofEfers visit. The stuff a
which was sold by Stukes is a very poor
imitation of beer. made from hops and '
if it contains any alcohol it m.st be very h
The same offcials called upon anoth
er merchant but that gentleman was
not in at the time, and they left word 1$
that it was reported to them they were 0
bandling this same product and they "
wrould have to pay the revenue. The r
parties will probably hear from the of- h
Scers later. We cannot see how these 0
parties are liable for the revenue taxb
merely on the statement of an offcer. Itd
seems to us that before thev- would be k
iable the government would have to
prove the liquid contained more than b
be quantity of alconol allowed by law.!
md even then the Germania Brewing
Domnpany would have to hold them harm
tess if they sold it to ther with the
uarantee of its being a xo alcoholicj
severage. Neither of the persons visit
ad by the offcials would deuiantly violate .
;he law, and w-e do not believe they have hi

He Favors Local Option.
The doctrine of Local Option is Jeff
rsonian as well as among the purest
f Democracy. Local Option implies
the right of all free.neu to enjoy local
;elf-government. It implies that every
voter shall enjoy the unquestioned
right to cast his ballot for or against
mv question pertaining to his locality
mad interest. This is our view of To
:al Option and if we viewed Local Op
Aion in any other light we certainly
would consider ourself unworthy the
ame of a freemen and only a 5t sub
iect to be a slave.
Prohibition as operated in South
arolina is the greatest farce imagine- I
ible. Under the Prohibition regime
we would like to know what is dry ter
-itorv. We have often heard some
nen say we ought to have free whis
cey. If whiskey at this time is not;
'ree in South Carolina it is almost. It
s free as far as this State derives any
evenue therefrom. One only has to
tand around any and every railroad!
tation to South Carolina, in ooth wet
md so-called d-v territory. and in Co
ng so he can safely form his own con
Iusions rs to the effectiven".s. of the
rohibition law in South Carolina.
Prohibition has never prohibited in
;outh Carolina. and we challenge the
roof to the contrary.
The people of Clareudon as well as I
s the people of South Carolina gener- 4
lly. should consider the late ruling of
udge .Iemmingeron the whiskey ques
ion in South Carolina. According to ,
is decision the last vestage of the!
ight of a people who claim to have a
overnment "of the people, by the neo- e
le and for the peodle" is wiped out. :
We appeal to the voters of Claren- f
on as well as to the voters of Southt
'arolina to- stand by Local Option in
ae coming primary election and show
) the world that they will stand by the
rinciples of Local Option, a God-given
s well as a constitutional right and a
rinciple that men fought. bled and C
Prohibition would be a good thing if
measure of the kind could be effec- E
ye. and for any legislation to be eftec- I
ye, it must have public sentiment be-:
id it. You can educate morals into! C
eople, but you can never legislate
Lorals into them
We have so-called dry territory in at f
ost thirty-four counties of Sueatl Car
a. but any one can get all the
biskev be wants in said dry ter
tory. It was said that last ye'ar we
ad Prohibition among forty millions
the United States and yet it has~
een said that there was more whiskey 1:
rank in that year than had ever beenA
Prohibition is a farce and will never
