LIQUOR BUSINESS AND TAXES.
The liquor business has resist
ed all the assesses against it,
not because of a few people who
desire to sell liquor; but because
of the millions of the American
public who desire to use liqu-ors.
Remember ' that tb United
States Government and the gov
ernment of every individual
L State in the Union is in. partn3r
ship with the liquor business.
The United States demands and
" accepts a percentage of the
profits, but contributes nothing
to the investment and pays no
- part of theexpenses of the bus
The liquor industry is the
fifth largest industry in the na
tion, paying over a quarter of a
billion of dollars taxes annually.
which amount is over one third
of the total income of the Udited
States Government. These same
taxes paid the bulk of the~ pen
sions resulting from the Civii
r 'War. These same taxes helped
build the Panama Canal: helped
build our navy and army. and
are instrumental in all the' vast
workings of the National Gov

SRecently in an adjoining town
the sheriff was offering the goods

were sold for less than $9. Why?
Because they belong to that
Sclass of people who never -pay

a prime cause of th's state of
i things is the credit system. As

pay as you go could be impress
ed upon the people of this coun-,
try, it would be a vastly greater
benefit than either. The credit
system caters to the morbid de
sire of a certain class ->f- people
who live beyond thez means. It
gives them a chance to get
everything they want; not what
they really want but what they
think they want. Then there is
a class of people who lack mor
al ste- ~-a. They never pay a
book t.. unt, but may pay cash
when they can't get credit.
These human parasites are the
cause of more .real suffering
than anything else under our
government, excluding whiskey.
The economy of nature, perfect
as it is, lacks one thing-a jump

WHAT DO YOU TEK OF OUR TOWN?
Well, that is a pretty direct
question, and one, too, which
might be answered in a great
variety of ways. -But a modest
opinion concerning the question,
and from one expects to make
this his home, may possibly be
read with some interest by cit
izens. Our town is indeed,
beautiful for situation. Nature
seems to-have done her utmost
in creating a fine site for'-a city
of geniuine worth and enduring
progress It would thus seem
that nature must have designed
this particular spot for a noble
and high-minded class of citizens
Nature, in this respect has evi
dently met with a genuine re
sponse. Every town or city has
an individuality, a type of its
own, and thus attracts citizens'
of the same general character
istics-to a great extent, at
least, we think this is true.
The people here are observed
to be thoughtful, kina, sympa
thetic and helpful to one anoth
er. And, as the Postum inan is
wont to say, "There's a rea
son." This is pre-emiently a
eity of _homes. The very atmos
phere of things imparts to one a
restful feeling, a thoughtful
spirit, and all is concerned in
the development and growth of
the higher ideals.
In speaking of our town as a
city of homes, however, we do
not mean to say that it is not
also a place of substantial busi
ness interests. By no means!
All the various kinds of busi
ness are not only well represent
ad, but they also seem to be con
at any price.

LIQUOR QUESTION AROUSES INTEREST
Columbia, August 9-Special:
NJo little ginger has been inject
ed mnto the question of liquor or
no liquor in this State by the in
junction procceedings which are
to come before the State Su
preme Court on the 20th of this
month. Since the order of ref
erence secured from Judge Watte
when he ordered it up befort
bhe supreme Court last week,
much speculation has been in
fulged in by those who are op
posed to the prohibition .meas
are,and by those who are in fas
er of State-wide prohibition.Botl
sides of the controversy seeni
eatisfied tbat their reepective
side will win out before thE
:ourt, and they are in a sense
resting upon their arms await
ing the hearing.
It is assumed that the hearing
will bring to Columbia man.s
prominent people from all parts
:f the State, who have very de
:ided opinions upon both sides
af the controversy, and at the
Supremne Court room it is
hought that some brilliant ar
inments will be heard. The At

port the contention of the State,
against the constitutionality, of
the law passed by the recent ses
sion of the General Assembly,
which Cole L. Blease and Frank
G. Tomkins, two Columbia at
torneys, will likely have some
thing to say supporting the
brief field which contend; that
the Act is not in accordance with
the spirit of the Constitution.
DRYS FEEL CONFIDENT.
Prohibition leaders here and
elsewhere over the State. are
confident of the decision of the
Court, however, taking the
ground that the men who were
instumental -in framing the law
had already looked into into its
status before passage. It is arg
ued by the prohibition leaders
that it passed a very vigilant
judiciary committee in both
branches of the Legislature. af
ter having been carefully inves
tigated by some of the leading
lawyers of the State.
The agitating of the matter by
those whe have brought the ac
tion, i't is predicted will have a
very salutary effect upon those
voters mn the State who, up to
this time, have been indifferent
to the result of. the election.
Those who are in a position to
know state state that it will un
doubtedly have the effect of
bringing out the vote in Septem
ber, that there has been some
what of an indifference shown
on account of the presupposed
victory for- prohibition. and that
these indifferent people will now
see the grave danger they face
in fighting liquor, with its many
minds and many methods of

who has been the generel secre
tary of the prohibition forces
for some time. and who has been
taking a great" interest in the
coming election, seems to be sat
isfied with the result of the corn
ing decision. When seen at his
office today be gave out the fol
lowing interview: "We think
the suit need cause no great
anxiety to those who are re
sponsible for the law and expect
to have the question settled by
the election to be held in Sep
tember. If there is any princi

tal in our form of govern ment it
is the ultimate sovereignty of

SOTHERS FEEL, SAME WAY.
Other leaders from over the
State feel practically - the same
way 'towards the suit. J. Rut
ledge McGee, who is 'editor of
weekly newspapers at Johnston
and at Batesburg, and who is
secre'tary of the pu blicity cam
mittee of the State-wide prohibi
tion movement, was in the cit3
today, sending out matter for
pablication in the weekly press.

upon the matter will serve to
put the people on guard, and.
will indicate the resourcefulness
of liquor and those who want to

will stand, I am told-but the 0

whether or not it will wake -the at

coming out and lending a hand to
to put liquor out of business in
