The recent activity in Columi- r

does not show why one club with 0
a charter has not the same right r
to store and permit liquor to bej ti
drunk as another, nor does he tc
attempt to show wherein any of t
the clubs have this right. It is r
true. there are clubs, and clubs, p
one class of clubs are nothing ti
more, so we are informed, than tc
bar rooms, they sell to anybody ni
who has the price, while other w
clubs receive no money from vis- if
itors and only serve from the ti
* rivate lockers of members. As si

One of the reasons advanced p
y those seeking to have a legal in
ale of liquor is the growmng ca
umber of clubs; we were told la
hat many in Sumter voted to n<

ther reason that the existence jt
f clubs in the towns, claiming in
hat the clubs are more debauch- a
og to the young than the dis- u
ensary would be. To belong to of
respectable club in a city gives di
young man a certain prestege- a
nd, when in this club drinking
permitted as a means of evad a

test is to have their friendly

Not so long ago Hon. J. Arthur
mnks, State Senator of Calhoun1
unty, had as his guest in his1
me. Hon. John L. McLaurin,
e two were friends at school,1
.d ever since, but as soon as iti
came known that Banks had1
cLaurin as his guest, the poli
:al pirates commenced to throw
it their feelers to find out
iether this visit had a political
mbshell in it. The first move
ey made was to have a press]
spatch sent out which had Mc
nurin employmng a first classI
wspaper man to run a public
Sbureau for him in Columbia.1
is was denied by both Mc
urin and Col. Green, the news
per man, then when they saw
e public could not be hood
nked by that story, they sent
t the story that Senator J.
thur Banks would be a candi
te for a State office on thei
ket McLaurin would head.
Senator Banks is an excellent
ntleman, if he had any aspir <
ons to fill a State office, the1
ate would profit by electing
n. He is a successful farmer, 1
~rchant and banker, and at the 1
ad of the State fair association,<
doubt if he could be induced
take any office in the State
use, yet, because he did not
np into the public prints to
ny the story of his being a can
late it was assumed that he t
>uld be, and his name was be-C
Sused until he tired of it and

iming having any intention of 1
lug a candidate. If such mn1
J. Arthur Banks could be in l

bas been arranged with the Pal- I
retto National Bank of Colm- I
bia, at practically the same cost (2
s the same bank originally con- E
sented to make the loan. After '
Ie confusion came about it was I
lificult to understand the exact
status from the newspaper re
ports, and at first we were led 1
bo believe it was a hold-up on I
he part of the bank for a higher t
s-te of interest, but such wasb
rot the case; the whole trouble b
.n our opinion resulted from the 8
2nfriendliness between certain D~
state officers who were trying to
bave the other discredited by l!
naking it to appear the other t
was responsible for the embar- L
issment. The Palmetto National a
Bank after entering into compe- 9
ition with a number of other hJ
aaks for the business was

she cost to the State is concern
ad there is scarcely any differ
nce from what was awarded, a
mnd the original proposition, C
which. had it been accepted,
would have saved the confusion, i
nisunderstanding and political C
maneuvering of the officials in ~
~he state house.
Whether the credit of the a
tate has been hurt by this un
~alled for controversy we do not ~
row, but it is reasonable to a
~uppose, controversies affecting
he finances are not calculated
o help matters in the finan
ial world, therefore, when we
saw the matter had been ar
-anged it was gratifying, and ~
ye sincerely hope there will be
ess trap-setting and more busi
iess in the future. It is only inn
he recent past that the officials
f the state house have been gc
roing into the public prints with a
heir diffkrences; it is a great k
ity they ever commenced it, e

state they are responsible for it, 3

The State supervision of cot- a
on seed asked for by the Cotton a
seed Crushers Association, and ji
hich Commissioner Watson n
vi put into effect is as we un-p
erstand it for the purpose of v
nsuring a better quality of meal ti
oth for fertilizer and food pur- tz
>oses. Without such supervi- m
ion it is held that it would be og
mpossible to secure prime meal ki
ecause of the damaged seed a
nixed indiscriminately with good sl
eed. Under the grading system e
he bad seed would be eliminated.
