A friend of The -Times edir remark
ed Monday that he was pleased with
some of his editorial expressions re
cently, but he did wish that the editor
would write some strong editorials in
favor of prohibition, when told that to
do so would be a violation of honest
opinion, be said the violation would be
in the interest of a good cause. Well
perhaps so, but it is not the editor's
conception of right to advocaite that
which he is opposed to on principle,
for to do so would be nothing short of
hypocrisy,and this is a despisable trait
that all men abhor. Personally the
editor is not in fayor of the principle
of prohibition, as a representative how
ever, it is his duty to carry out the
wishes of the majority when expressed;
this he will do or make way for some
one else who will. What more can the
most ardent prohibitionist desire?

Does Not Favor Proposed Tobacco ILaw.
New Zion December, 15th 1914.
Editor The Manning Times;
I am writing you today to give you
my experience in grading tobacco. To
grade is expensive and the falling off
in weight will be a great loss. I have
tried, sold both graded and ungraded
tobacco, and I realized more ney
from the portion ungraded, and , to
be required to grade the tobacco will
interfere with the gathering of other
I have talked with other farmers
about thlis agitation for grading to
bacco, and they say it wont do, and
most of us would almost rather not
plant tobacco if we are to be required'
to have the expense and trouble of
grading. I think T am safe in saying
that this community is opposed to such
a law, and I hope you and the other
members of the delegation will fight
any attempt to enact a law that will
interfere with our tobacco marketing
interests; we are accustomed to the
present methods, and to place addition
al requirements will not only add an
additional expense on the farmer, but
it will not add anything to his profit.
